I have used the function = now() to have the most updated time but it updates a workbook when I open it in the first place. How I can avoid this?

Update Link Without Open Resource File

May 31, 2006

I'm using Excel 2002.

I have one workbook with data linked to another CSV file (It's about 40000rows). When I open the workbook, "THis workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated." message appears and asks me to open csv file if I wanna to update (although I set full path for links in cells). I wonder if there's any way to update link without opening csv file? Or Excel can not update link without openning the resource file?

Update Range In Template From Open File

Jul 13, 2006

I have used the directions below (from this site) to add a name to a validated cell and have that name added to a list. The issue I am trying to solve is this, when opening a new file from the template containing the code below the new file needs to have the range to which I'm refering updated to the range that was in the last opened file from the template. I tried by using a macro to copy and paste the range to an external wb that was hidden and then copy and paste to the new file opened from the template but it was a mess.
If anyone can help by posting some example code to steer me in the right direction I would be very grateful

1. Add any list of names or items to the range A1:A10 on any sheet.

2.Now in cell A11 enter this formula and copy it down to say row 20. =IF( COUNTIF($A$1:A10,$D$1),"x",$D$1) Note the relative reference of A10

3.Go to Insert>Name-define and in the Names in workbook: box type:MyName

4.In the Refers to: box enter this formula: =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,0,0,COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A:$A,"<>x"),1)

5.Click Add then Ok.

6. Select Cell D1 and go to Data> Validation, select List from the Allow: box and in the Source: box type: =MyNames Ensure the In-cell dropdown box is checked.

7.Click the Error Alert page tab and uncheck the Show error alert after invalid data is entered box. Now click Ok.

8.Right click on the sheet name tab and select View Code in here paste the code below:

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
On Error Resume Next
Application.EnableEvents = False
Range("MyNames") = Range("MyNames").Value
Application.EnableEvents = True
On Error Goto 0
End Sub

9.Click the top right X to get back to Excel and now Save.

Now select cell D1 and type in any name, that is NOT part of the list, and Enter. Select D1 again and look at the list. The new name should now be part of it!

Push Button Update - Date And Time

Mar 16, 2007

I need is to be able to have a button show up on an Excel spreadsheet that you push to update the DAY and TIME to today. But, I need it to stay in a protected field so that it doesn't accidentally get changed by other users who open it up. And we save these for retention purposes, so if I open it a couple days later, I need the date to stay as the date I edited it on.

Update Data By Ado - Change/delete Data And Then Run Macro For Update Data In Source Spreadsheet

Dec 6, 2006

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.

Sub UpdateItem
.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
End If
End Sub

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
' or
.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).

Actively Update The Date/time Information Constantly

Nov 15, 2006

I am currently using:

=TODAY() and


to enter date/time on a sheet that is used to create a printed form. I want to ensure that the date/time are current when the form is printed, but they will actually only reflect when the workbook was opened. So, if the employee opens the workbook, then takes a break or answers the phone, when he prints the sheet the date/time may be wrong.

I need to have the worksheet either:

1. actively update the date/time information constantly
2. update it before printing,
3. or possibly have the workbook "time out" and close if there is no activity for 60 seconds or so.

I already have code entered to prevent a "do you want to save changes" promt when closing. And I am using a command button for print which closes the workbook automatically once the employee prints the form (to ensure that all other data is entered fresh everytime the workbook is used).

Macro To Open Up Several Files And Update Data?

Aug 12, 2014

I have several workbooks in folder C:Parts &Service where the data needs to be updated with downloaded files in C:extract

I have a macro that allows me to open up a workbook in c:Parts & SVC Sales. One opened I then need to select the appropriate file in C:extract

Sub Update_Workbooks()
ChDir ("C:Parts & SVC Sales")
Application.DisplayAlerts = False


The are two types of workbooks in C:Parts & SVC Sales "Parts Sales" and "service Sales" . The branch name is at the beginning of the file name

Instead of opening up each file individually in C:Parts & SVC Sales and selecting the appropriate csv file in C:/extract using the Update_Macro, I would like the macro to open up all the files in the directory C:Parts & SVC Sales and update each of these with the appropriate csv file in C:extract

The name and description type must match the csv files and then updated eg Br1 Parts Sales to be updated with csv file Br1 Salesperson 01-07-2014 (the date in the file is not important for match the parts file -the branch name for eg BR1 and "salesperson is) i.e Br1 Parts Sales must select BR1 Salesperson 01-07-2014

BR1 Service Sales Must be updated with Br1 Service order repair register.csv (branch name for eg Br1 in this instance name and Service order repair register (pertain to Service Sales) is important)

Br2 Parts Sales to be updated with Br2 Salesperson
Br2 Service Sales must be updated with Br2 Service order repair register etc

Code To Update Cell With Current Date And Time When Other Cells Are Modified

Mar 11, 2014

I needed a code that would input the current date and time in the cells in column N whenever changes were made to any cells in the row from columns A to M. For example, if I change a name in cell 6D, then cell 6N would automatically change to the current date and time.

I found a useful code on a forum (maybe here, don't know for certain) and modified it to suit my needs (see below). I am however now getting a debugging error suggesting that the second line that reads "Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()" is causing an error.

Show (copy) Data At X Time And Stop Update?

Sep 2, 2012

I have two sheets. In the first sheet, I have cell F4 is 00:00:00 (countdown). G9, G10 and G11 are cells that receive data (decimal numbers) live. In the second sheet, I have three cells linked from shhet1 G9 ='Sheet1'!G9, G10 ='Sheet1'!G10, G11 ='Sheet1'!G11 (which update themselve when data is modified in the first sheet). Now I want to set in sheet 2, (assume) cells B9, B10 and B11 to show me (copy) the values from G9, G10 and G11 from sheet 1 when the countdown was 00:00:05 (5 seconds before Start) and not update again if the data changes in the cell it pulled the data from.

Like G9 ='Sheet1'!G9 at 00:00:05 and stop here, do not update anything. OK?

I can do a part, but the real problem is: I can not make it stop cells to update.Stand frozen, freeze, not move, calm .. however. I do not want to seem pretentious (but my knowledge in excel are limited), the most appropriate would be a formula, not macro or VBA, if possible..

Macro Data Dump Of The Date When I Hit 'update'

Jul 14, 2009

I have a model which I have created a macro for that will do a data dump of the date when I hit 'update' (on BBG Raw Data Tab) to Column A in the 'Data for Pivot' Tab.

This works fine and all of the data comes over, except the last two data points in BBG Raw data (Cell A5055 and A5056) do not come across into the 'Data for Pivot' Tab (these should be going into Cell A5054 and A5055 of the 'Data for Pivot' tab).

Automatically Update Only With Numbers (ifnumber-update And Go To Next Cell)

Oct 18, 2013

Let's say that in column A I have numbers,"Yes" and "No". I want in column B to have only the numbers from column A, in the same order without any empty ranges, and everytime I add in column A a new number, column B to update automatically with that number. Let's have an example:

Yes 12
12 13
No 10

And if I want to add in column A:
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13 25
No 15

So the column be will update automatically. I already tried =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER($A$1:$A$10),ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS(B$1:B1))-ROW($A$1)+1),") but using this many times get's my file very heavy and the excel is working slow.

Stop Update / Don't Update Requestor Message

Oct 27, 2008

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?

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)

Don't Update Links On Workbook Open

Aug 12, 2009

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?

Update Workbook Open On Another Computer

Feb 26, 2007

Worksheet1 is modified on computer A. Worksheet1 is open on computer B. The instant something changes on Worksheet1 on computer A, Worksheet1 on computer B is updated.

Idea 1:Maybe worksheet1 on computer B could be opened read-only and then the notify feature could be used to trigger a macro in worsheet1 on computer B. By notify I am talking about the box that pops up when a user has finished modifying a worksheet to let you know you have read/write access.

Idea 2: Could all cells in worksheet1 on computer B be linked to all cells in worksheet1 on computer A and automate the updating somehow this way?

Autofill; Copy Down It Doesn’t Automatically Update The Cell References Because It Want To Update Them By Column Number Instead Of Row Number

Dec 11, 2008

I have a basic formula =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!C24, and I want to copy it down just using the drag function. Problem is that the second reference range of cells are in rows and hence when I copy it down it doesn’t automatically update the cell references because it want to update them by column number instead of row number. IE I want it to display =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!
D24, instead of C25. Do you know if there is any way of telling Excel that I want it to increase the column number by 1 every time, instead of the row number for this part of the formula?

Scheduled Time Update Macro

Sep 18, 2008

I have the following macro:

Sub ScheduleUpdate()
WaitHours = 0
WaitMin = 15
WaitSec = 0
NextTime = Now + TimeSerial(WaitHours, WaitMin, WaitSec)
Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=NextTime, Procedure:=LinkUpdates()
End Sub

Sub LinkUpdates()
Sheets("PRICING SHEET").Select
Sheets("PRICING SHEET").UpdateLink Name:="P:CommonPRICINGCOMPILATION.xls", Type:=
End Sub
The code does not work at all, just the skeleton to have an idea. I also need help recreating an entirely new macro which preferably works well!
The idea is that everyday at 8:00AM this macro starts automatically updating the links every 15 mins (SHOULD NOT MATTER IF THE SHEET IS OPEN OR NOT). But here is the catch.
This code should be the code for a checkbox. So when the box is checked, or TRUE, the macro should run normally updating every 15 mins. But when the box is unchecked, the macro should stop (no update occurring).
I want this macro because this sheet is linked to several other sheets and it needs constant updating. However, if I need to make a change in the main sheet, no updates should be happening.
