I have a vlookup to another workbook. It works fine if both workbooks are open. But if both are not open and I open the workbook with the links and click Update, #VALUE! returns. I have attached the two files. I don't think it is my formula, but here it is anyway. =IF( COUNTIF([Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$A$83,A3),VLOOKUP(A3,[Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$L$82,12,FALSE),0)
i have a complex workbook. Recently, when I open it, it asks me if I want to update links. I never (that I know of) established any links to other workbooks. I see that a workbook is referenced in the "edit/links" menu, but I can find no way determine which cells, graphs, etc, in my workbook are subject to this link. I would like to get rid of this useless and bothersome issue.
I have a dashboard (CW Dashboard.xlsx) that is linked to 3 main spreadsheets. In each main spreadsheet, there are 5 tabs. One tab contains raw data, the other 4 tabs contain tables: 2 tabs with formulas based on the raw data tab, and 2 tabs linked to 20 other spreadsheets (for now). I separated the raw data into 3 spreadsheets because Excel was calculating way slower than my patience would tolerate. All spreadsheets are Excel 2010. All spreadsheets reside on our network drive.
The links update as expected on the 2 tabs that are linked to the 20 different spreadsheets in each of the three main spreadsheets.The CW Dashboard does not update. I get #REF! in each cell (although when I click in the cell, the link shows no error). I am using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in this spreadsheet. I can of course open the source documents from within the Dashboard and the links then work as expected. However, I would prefer the eventual users of the Dashboard not have to open 4 s'sheets.
I'm hoping to find a way to update links on all spreadsheets going backwards.
ie. s/sh 5 is linked to s/sh 4 s/sh 4 is linked to s/sh 3 s/sh 3 is linked to s/sh 2 s/sh 2 is linked to s/sh 1
Is there a way of opening s/sh 5, and having it automatically update s/sh's 2,3 and 4 (1 has no links), rather than just updating s/sh 4, as would be the normal functionality. Currently I need to open 2, then 3, then 4, otherwise changes to s/sh 1 do not flow all the way through to s/sh 5.
I have a macro that creates links to another workbook and then changes the setting for the links update to "xlUpdateLinksNever". I wrote this macro in Excel 2003. I am now testing across different excel platforms and this errors out when I try to use it in excel 2000. I'm assuming this is because excel 2000 does not have the same ability to ontrol the links.
I have a sheet with formula in various cells that are referenced to a sheet that doesnt initially exist. For example one formula on the sheet is: =If( 'WF Tracker 2008'!$D$5=AN$4,INDEX('WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$10, MATCH($E36,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$B$10,), MATCH(AN$7,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$6,)),IF(AN26="N/A",AN31,"N/A")) and initially, sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' doesnt exist so the formulas all produce #ref! values which I expect. My problem is that I Run a macro that creates the sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' but the formula dont want to refresh/update unless I individually go into each cells formula in the formula bar and hit return.
I have a Vlookup in a shared workbook looking in another shared workbook for the data I want. I open the file and click "Update Links" but I then get the following message box:
"This workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated. -To change the source of links, or attempt to update values again, click Edit Links. -To open the workbook as is, click Continue.
I know this message is trying to tell me it can't find my links, but the path/workbook/ sheet are correct and the numbers are getting updated. I'm worried the message will deter the other users of this workbook from allowing the use of the vlookup.
I'm using code which forces users to enable macros prior to being allowed into a file. Then I ran into an issue of needing this Shared Workbook to update links, which you can't do in the workbook_open event and I do not want users prompted to update or not. So what I've done is made a 'skeleton' file to force the macro enable and then open up the real file with updated links. Once the real file is opened I want that skeleton file to close. For some reason, once the file closes the code halts. "Forcemacroenablemaster" closes, but nothing runs after it. If I comment the close line out everything after runs. This code is in my "Forcemacroenable" file:
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Call ShowAllSheets Workbooks("Forcemacroenablemaster.xls").Close False MsgBox "Test"
I have inherited an excel document that has dashboards, data pages and pivot tables. There is macro and links within this but I can not view the macros at all. When trying to update the links ( using break,update, change) it appears to work ( changes to OK) but the location field on bottom of edit links page NEVER goes to new location and the MANUAL button is greyed out. I need to be able to update this master file tomorrow with the multiple excel sheets I will get but do not know how to do it if can not update links proeprly or even be able to view the macro
I have this problem: I have a workbook with a formula liniking to another workbook. When I open the workbook, I click on "update links" and then I get this warning message:
"The workbook contains one or more (than one) links that cannot be updated. * To modify the origin of links, or to look up to update the values again, choose Modify links * To open the workbook as it is currently , choose To Continue"
I cannot understand where is the problem, the link is updated, state of link is "ok", I even can open the origin from Modifiy menu --> link --> open origin
I'm having a problem with data tables. Actually, not with data tables, but links to data tables. Calculation is set to be automatic and values within data tables update alright, but links to those values do no update. So you may have a certain value in one cell within a data table, for example cell B5, and a different value in another cell which is just a link to cell B5.
I have a workbook that has many cells that link to a server on the other side of the planet. If I manually open this workbook I get the "This workbook contains links to other data sources." And the option to "Update" or "Don't Update"
If I choose to not update, everything works great. If I choose to update, the worksheet takes 10-15 minutes to open. I have tried to go to tools-->options-->Edit and uncheck "ask to update automatic links" but this makes the default behavior updating. I want to open this workbook using a scheduled task and a batch file, and have it not update, and then run a macro. Any suggestions on how to do this?
My business has a significant number of Excel sheets interlinked. One of them has about 10.000 links to about 60 files. Those 60 files are within a sub-folder and once a quarter the business needs to replace all 60 files with a new set. To establish this, they replace the sub-folder name in the link with the new name. To do this on 10.000 links takes about 72 minutes because Excel seems to open up a file for every updated cell. We tried to stop this by changing Excel to calculate manual, disabled "Update remote reference", but this didn't improve anything.
We have similiar issue when opening/updating the master file - it takes around 3 mins.
Besides that a proper database is certainly better for this requirement, is there anything we can do to improve the performance of the replace method. I was thnking about stopping Excel from validating/updating each single cell and after everything has been replaced to do it in one go without Excel opening and closing 10.000 times a file.
Sub unprotectEm() ActiveSheet. Unprotect Password:="shreked" ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:="R:SHAREDPASSACCEXCELPASSACCCONTROL.XLS" _ , Type:=xlExcelLinks ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="shreked" End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Open() If ThisWorkbook.ReadOnly = True Then MsgBox "READ ONLY YOUVE BEEN WARNED" End Sub
It works fine until its been opened as "read only". What I mean is I open the file and the read only msg box comes up no prob. When the file avail for editing again I open the file and its not updating the control list.
I have cells (range named Formulas) in a worksheet A (wsA) linking to another workbook. This workbook has several sheets, each a different forecast. From a Radio Button Group on wsA I would like to choose forecast, FC1-FC3, and then all the cells in the range Formulas would be updated with the choosen FC.
I would like a VBA script to handle this:When the workbook is activated the present Forecast in the Radio Button Group should be stored as a variable (oldFC)When I choose a new forecast, the value should be stored in a new variable (newFC)I then want to loop through the whole range (Formulas) and update each cell and it's part of string value to the newFC
Before update: wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$16 wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$17
When new Forecast is choosen this should be update to: wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$16 wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$17
Is it possible to display a dialog box or msgbox that doesnt have an OK button ?
i.e I want a message that comes up on the screen that says "Links Updating...Please Wait" which then automatically changes to "Links Sucessfully Updated" on completion...I dont want the macro to be interrupted by the msgbox/dialog....
I have a 15 excel files which are part of the forecast system. There is another file MASTER which is the host file for the macro. Every months multiple users are asked to update their forecast in the 15 excel files .As these files also display actuals, so they are linked to bunch of other files. The links to the files should not be updated unless I run my macro from MASTER to do the series of tasks.
Everytime these users open the files , they are asked to update links.
Is there a way for me to stop this warning and still able to update the links only when i run my macro from the Master.
I have excel graphs linked to a power point presentation that runs in a loop and I would like have to the links update everytime slide 1 pops up or when the loop restarts, either one works for me. When I close the looping presentation and reopen it I get a message asking me if I want to update the charts, but I would really prefer the looping presentation to update itself. I know this is going to be a VBA setup, but I cant seem to figure it out. I pasted the links by: pasting special, paste link as microsoft office excel worksheet object.
I have a workbook which has links to another excel workbook (source). This workbook has many sheets -all exact copy- with different names. I changed startup prompt (edit->links) to "dont display the alert and dont update automatic links". Then I recorded a macro for updating links (from source) and assigned this macro to a button. What I want to do is when I click this update button I want links to be updated only on the active sheet that Im on. My problem is, when I press this button, it updates all links including other sheets (basically whole workbook).
My current macro is (I dont know coding but I tried changing ActiveWorkbook to ActiveSheet but it didnt work):
Sub update() ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:= _ "C:Documents and SettingsAlperDesktopExcelsource.xls", Type _ :=xlExcelLinks End Sub
I am linking to cells on a spreadsheet and in some cases the formula is showing in the cell and in others the contents of the linked cell. I have forced updating (F9 )and F2 enter with no effect. Is their something i am missing as I want all the links to update automatically. If I copy and paste a working formula into one of these cells it updates albeit with the wrong reference but if i go in and edit F2 etc then it shows as a formula.
