Update Links And Click Update, Returns #VALUE!
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)

Update Links Across Workbooks
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.
Update Formula 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.
Update Links To All Spreadsheets
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.
Update Links Without Prompt
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()
Update Links Object
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.
Warning Message When I Update Links
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:

* 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

Office 2007 - Where Has The 'do You Want To Update Links' Box Gone
I'm opening an Excel file that automatically attempts to update links when I open it, but I am not prompted with the choice to cancel, or update links, when I open the file, like I was in Office 2003.
I have checked the Excel Options, Advanced, General, 'Ask to update automatic links' box, but I still don't get the dialog box when I open the file.
The file is just riddled with VALUE errors. A colleague of mine who opens the file in Office 2003 can see all the data fine.
Don't Update Links On Workbook Open
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?
Suppress Update Links Message
I have a template workbook which contains link to information in another workbook.
I open this external workbook by GetObject method.

And I would like to get rid of this window (I don't want to update that information until the external file is open)
Update Links Only Via Macro Code
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.
Show Message While Links Update
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....
Disable Update Links Message
I have tried using the following in the ThisWorkbook Module which does not seem to work because it appears the "Update Links" message fires before the Open Event
Private Sub Workbook_Open()

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.
Update Of Links In Formula For All Cells
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
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
Slow Update Of Edited Links
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.
How To Update Master Workbook With Links To Other Workbooks
I have a workbook that links out to numerous other workbooks for current data. After one of the supporting workbooks gets up dated, I return to the master workbook.
Here, I need to see the updated results. The only way that I can find a way of updating the master is to close and save it and then re-open.
Is there a way of updating the master workbook using a macro?

Color Cells With External Links On Update
I have the following code in Sheet1 for file Book7.xls
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
On Error Resume Next
For Each rcell In Range("A1:D6")
Select Case rcell.Value
Case Is >= 5
rcell.Interior.Color = vbBlue
Case Is < 5
rcell.Interior.Color = vbRed
Range A1:D6 is linked to an external source file which I am changing every now and then.
A1 has the formula:
Copied all the way to D6.
[Book8.xls]Sheet1!A1:D6 presently has all values 1 hence the formatting in Book7 is all red.
Now I an changing source file to Book9.xls (thru EDIT menu->LINKS). [Book9.xls]Sheet1!A1:D6 has all values 10. But when I change external source to Book9.xls, the right formatting did not apply. All are still red (instead of blue). I still need to go in one of the cell and press F2 and F9 to trigger calculation.
How do I change the code in order to recognise the calculation in order to trigger the codes in the event?
Auto Update Links With Current Values
When copying data from a closed workbook, I frequently get the prompt:
"Links to 'Source.xls' were not updated because 'Source.xls' was not recalculated before it was last saved.
To update links with current values in 'Source.xls', click OK..."
Is there a way I can bypass this prompt and automatically update with the saved (uncalculated) values and therefore not require a user intervention?
Macro To Update Links In Active Sheet Only
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):
ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsAlperDesktopExcelsource.xls", Type _
Cell Formula: All The Links To Update Automatically
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.
Update Links Opening Workbook: Turning Off Warnings
When ever I open a file a message comes up reading "This workbook contains links to other data sources" and then asks me wethere I wasnt to update or not. Well I don't want people to see this when they run a Macro I have created. So what I would like to know is if there is some code that I can add into the macro that will either disable that message or somehow always answer "dont update" everytime that message comes up so that the user wont have to be bothered with it.
Automatically Update External Links To Csv File In 2007
I have an Excel 2003 workbook (named TargetWorkbook.xls) with some links to a CSV file called DataSource.csv. I use Excel 2007 to open the workbook. I checked the "Update links to other documents" option under the "When Calculating this workbook..." section on the Advanced pane of the Excel Options window. I unchecked the "Ask to update automatic links" option under the "General" section on the Advanced pane of the Excel Options window. I selected the "Don't display the alert and update links" option on the Startup Prompt dialog (accessed from the Edit Links dialog) I created a simple Auto_Open macro with the following statements:
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:ProjectsExcelTestDataSource.csv", ReadOnly:=True
Windows("DataSource.csv").Visible = xlVeryHiidden
The DataSource.csv file is updated daily. I want the cells of TargetWorkbook.xls to automatically update from the csv file when I open TargetWorkbooks.xls without displaying a prompt. I plan to deploy this workbook to a server and open it programatically via a Windows Service (I know, I know, Microsoft doesn't encourage this)and can't have it throwing up a user dialog.
Here is the problem: When I open TargetWorkbook.xls manually using Excel 2007, it updates the links but throws up the dialog "This workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated...". When I click on the "Edit Links..." button, it displays the message "Warning: Open source to update values". When I click the "Check status" button for this link, it says "Source is open". How do I prevent this dialog box from poping up? I've been wrestling with this for a few
days now and can't find a solution.
Date And Time Update With A Click
Im trying to make an excel sheet as quick and easy to update as possible.
Is there anyway to add an option ( formulated button,cell etc etc) that can update the current date and time in a desired cell with just the click of a mouse?
This is for comunication as to when the info/count has been updated in the sheet.
Stop Update / Don't Update Requestor Message
I have some VB code which sequentially opens over 200 workbooks to extract data from each and populate another workbook. These workbooks do have links to other workbooks in them.
For some reason when some of these workbooks are opened I get a requestor window asking whether I want to Update or Don't Update the data. I always want to Update the workbook and believe this can be done in VB by hiding the requestor?
Update Data By Ado - Change/delete Data And Then Run Macro For Update Data In Source Spreadsheet
I have one source spreadsheet, where are columns NAME, DATE. I read these data by ADO to other spreadsheet, where I can change/delete data and then run macro for update data in source spreadsheet. The problem: In source spreadsheet is column "NAME" and column "DATE", with values e.g. "Joseph"; 1.1.1980. I read this data to other spreadsheet, then I delete in it value 1.1.1980. When I run macro Update, it messages error.
.Fields.Item(1).value = activecell 'activecell value = "Joseph"
If Not isempty(activecell.offset(0,1)) Then
.Fields.Item(2).value = activecell.offset(0,1).value
.Fields.Item(2).value = "" 'I tried Empty and 0 too but when I read data again then, it displays 0.1.1900, nothing works
It seems that in source spreadsheet has data in column "Date" format Date and when I try to update data in format String ("") in source spreadsheet by Update macro, it messages error. When I used
.Fields.Item(2).Value = Empty
.Fields.Item(2).Value = 0
after rereading data it displays 0.1.1900 What I want to get is that if the cell with date (in other spreadsheet) is empty, the cell in column Date in source spreadsheet after updating will be blank (contains no values).
Create Click-able Links To Worksheets
I am interested in finding out how to link worksheets. For example: the bottom tabs for worksheet1 says contacts. tab for worksheet2 says projects. I want to link from worksheet1 to worksheet2 by clicking on a link that will take the person to the project. On worksheet 2 I have more than one project. THerefore, on worksheet1 after all the content I'd like to have a link that says Project 1 with a link that sends the person to the next worksheet. Same with Project 2. I know this is possible. I have already added the formula. Now I need information on how to insert a link that can be clicked on that will go to the next page.
A UDF That Won't Update By Itself..
I have a UDF that looks up data in another worksheet (called "Capital Costs") to create data for the worksheet in which I enter it. This is the first UDF I have ever written, so I must be doing something wrong. It works just fine--once.
But if I go into the "Capital Costs" worksheet and change the data there, it does not automatically update the cell in the other worksheet with my UDF. I have to erase my UDF and reenter it for it to grab the new data in "Capital Costs". (I have tried hitting F9, and that doesn't update the UDF.)
My UDF is "=Capex(year)". So let's say my year 1 Capex was $50,000. The UDF calculates that and populates the cell correctly. But if I go into the "Capital Costs" worksheet and change the year 1 Capex to $60,000, the UDF (which is on a different worksheet) doesn't automatically update. I would like it to automatically update, just the same way it would if it were a built-in function like AVERAGE or SUMPRODUCT or STDEV.
Update SQL Query Rather Than ADD
This is to run stored procedures (in the SQL Database), and pass variables. But...once the query is setup...all I really want to do is change the variable...and "fix" the sql query with the new variable value.
Is there a better way than: ....
I have a combo box, when I make a selection in the combobox it filters the selection in the listbox but I want it to list Column B & C data - it only lists column B data. I did make the column count 2.
I used to have a Text box on the form that allowed the user to enter a value for the Weight variable. But they wanted it changed to a drop down combo box so I have changed the form and added the combo Box with the following
Private Sub CmbBx_Weight_Change()
CmbBx_Weight.Value = UCase(CmbBx_Weight.Value)
What the user wants now is to have the combo box where they can enter a variable for the first time through and this value gets added to the combo box list. (The combo box starts out empty). And each time after that when the user comes to this combo box, the first value will be there already and they will be able to use that value or enter a new one and each time save this new one to the combo box. I have been looking at the board for an example, but can't figure it out.
Could you have a look at my attached sheets?

3.If it exists already in "SUM",then update the row.
I have an excel spreadsheet which I have a button to insert from SQLEXPRESS and it works well. I have now put a button on which is to send the data back to the .dbo. I was wandering how close I am to getting this correct.

strConn = "PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB;"
strConn = strConn & "DATA SOURCE=(local)SQLEXPRESS;INITIAL CATALOG=test;"
Update A Value In Userform
In Excel, I have created a userform where a user inputs parameters into various textboxes. A simulation runs based on these user entered values. All the VB code is in this form. There are some textboxes and charts that are supposed to get updated as the simulation runs so that the user can view the parameters change as the simulation happens (it is a "do loop").
Everything is fine except the charts and textboxes don't display the most current value. They display the starting value during the "do loop " execution. Once the do loop quits, they then display the final values and chart.
I have me.repaint and chart.refresh inside the do loop to display the most recent values. none work, as far displaying the most current values.
UPDATE TO ANOTHER SYSTEM
Below is a formula that links other worksheets from other workbooks to cell B4. If I copied this to another computer system in My Documents that is named other than Tom would the links get updated to that system. If not is there a macro that can handle this to be updated to another computer system.

Update Without Confirmation
Is there a way to update without user input? I get the following message: This workbook contains links to other data sources.
*If you update the links, Excel will attempt to retrieve the latest data.
* If you don't update the links, Excel will use the previous information.
Note that data links can be used to access and share confidential information without your permission and possibly perform other harmful actions. Do not update the links if you do not trust the source of this workbook.
Automatic Update ...
I want to the "No. of times taken out" column to automatically update if the status is "Borrowed".
So, say book had been borrowed 13 times, and the Book is borrowed again, I want the "No of times taken out" to change from 13 to 14.
Update Cell When Value Changes
I am creating a spreadsheet where if a cell is updated, the cell next to it is given a time stamp
i.e. if the value in cell A2 changes, the macro gets the current time from cell B1 and pastes it (as a value) in cell B2 - see the code below
However, I need to have this for about 200 cells and I don't want to create the code for each unique line. Is there anyway of doing this?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Row = 2 And Target.Column = 1 Then
MsgBox ("Cell updated!")
I have a database in excel that has hyperlinks to each document. The problem i have is that i need to move the documents to a new folder, therefore rendering the hyperlinks useless. I have over 1000 hyperlinks that needs to be updated.
what i need to do is the change the current hyperlink to insert the name of the new folder that these documents are to be placed in.
needs to become
c:Registered folders1 Management........
Is there a way of adding the name Registered folders to the path of the hyperlinks for every document automatically, as doing this manually will be too time consuming.
Code To Update Add-in
I need to write code to automatically update a user's add-in if a newer version is available. Here are the specifics. The add-in is installed on multiple users c:drives. In the add-in code, there is a constant, Version_Nbr. On the network drive, I have a text file containing the most up-to- date version number. When the user opens the add-in file, the code compares the Version_Nbr to the text file on the network drive. If the version on the network is higher, I prompt the user with "A new version is available. Would you like to download it now?"
I have a seperate download program which will automatically download the new add-in to the user's local drive. Here's where I run into problems. I cannot replace the add-in file with a newer version when the add-in is open. The add-in is always open because it's the add-in that determines if a newer version is available. So how do I do this? It seems to me I need to launch the download program from the add-in and then have the add-in close itself before the download program executes.

I have this issue, I am trying to create a spreadsheet which updates one (Database) based on another (Sheet1), then log's the changes on a third sheet (log), I keep getting the error 1004 message, but I can't see what is wrong with my code here it is, and file is attached also:

Fields That Will Update Each Other
I'm creating a spreadsheet that will have two types of data fields: hex and binary, with pairs of corresponding values for each record in the worksheet. I need to be able to edit the hex values and have the binary values update correspondingly and vice versa, on the same worksheet. I can't figure out how to create such a two-way feedback mechanism.
