VLOOKUP To File Located On Server

Jan 30, 2013

How to pull data with a VLOOKUP to a file located on a Server.

My big problem is not understanding the syntax of the Server location. I've provided it below (obviously with some character changes).

I have a file located on my Hard Drive. I need to perform a VLOOKUP from A2 on this spreadsheet. The File on the Server is called "LookupTest.xls". The Range of Data is from Sheet 1 and is from A2:C4 and I need to pull the data from column C depending on what is selected from A2 from the file on my HD. I understand how to use VLOOKUP, just not when I'm pointing to another file on a Server.

Server mapping from Windows Explorer:

rbbabc$ on 'RP17409 - ABC Database (AHSSRVVN678.tge.com)'

Again, that server mapping is fake, as I changed it, but this is how it looks on Windows Explorer.

I'm trying to keep a master file of Data on a spreadsheet found on a server so that one master file can be updated, and several other tools pull from that Master File on VLOOKUP, Validation Lists, etc.

Run Macro In File That Is Located On Server While Laptop Is Off?

Jul 25, 2014

I am looking to automate our daily sales report.

I am aware of the windows task scheduler.

However, I'd like for this report to run and be sent out very early in the morning (5AM) before I'm even at work.

My computer is usually off because it's with me as I'm commuting into the office.

These files are saved out on our network drive.

Is there a way I can "open" the file and run the macro I have that builds my sales reports with my computer being off?

Any code that will grab the names of all files from all directories on an FTP server? I have the path & credentials to get to them, but I need a process to drop their names into a spreadsheet to compare against a list of files loaded onto a SQL database.

At home in my home computer this code worked when C: was selected.

Display Server Message To User After POST File Upload

Feb 6, 2014

I'm using VBA to upload the open workbook to app.box URL which is working great! Since I'm pretty new to VBA, I can't figure out how to get Excel to display the sucess/failed message from the server to the user. I used the VBA POST upload module from this awesome tutorial, but I can't figure out how to return the message to the user. I did figure out that on the website there is an "id="after_upload_message", not sure if that works. My code is below.

Returning Where Function Is Located?

Aug 18, 2009

I am new to VBA programming in Excel (currently 2003) so hopefully this isn't a "dumb" question.

I would like to re-arrange a group of data from a table of several rows and columns to a single column where the data from the first row is translated to a column then the second row is appended to the end of that data ....

( 1 ) ( 4 ) ( 7 )
( 2 ) ( 5 ) ( 8 )
( 3 ) ( 6 ) ( 9 )


( 1 )
( 4 )
( 7 )
( 2 )
( 5 )
( 8 )
( 3 )....

I thought a user defined formula would be a good place to start but am having problems getting the address of the cell that the function resides in to use to calculate the offset from a fixed cell (to be entered into the function as a argument). In other words, how do I get the address of the call that a UDF is entered in into the UDF? activecell.address is returning the cell that was last clicked not the cell were the UDF resides.

Secondly is there a better way to achive the results that I am looking for other than through a function? The size of the table will vary from worksheet to worksheet. I would also like to add an argumnet that lets me exclude cells with certain content from the resultant list.

Drop Down Is Located On Several Worksheets

Jan 2, 2007

I have created a drop down menu wseveral items for the first time. The drop down is located on several worksheets. What I'm trying to do is find out if there is a way to do 2 things.

A) capture a total (numerical value) of the number of items selected from the list on each worksheet. ex. if on worksheet #3 15 cells contain data from the drop down cell A1 on worksheet #1 would = 15.


B) capture a total (numerical value) of the number of times a specific item was selected from several worksheets. ex. if ABC was selected from the drop down menu 8 times on worksheet #2 & 6 times on worksheet #3, cell A2 on worksheet #1 would = 14.

Returning Value Located Between Two Date Ranges

Feb 5, 2014

I have 2 tables where I need to pull data from one table into the other.

Table 1 - pull data here
Begin Date
End Date


For example: site 77 in table 1, I need to pull whatever rate is shown for site 77 in table 2 for the date range specified on table 1. So the correct answer for the first row site 77 in column E would be .02. Notice there is a problem...mainly the dates do not match exactly. I just need the rate the applies for the majority of the time.

Another example. For table 1, site 174 from 2/11/11 to 2/22/12, the correct answer in column E (pulled from table 2) would be .02, even though Column D shows .00.

Determining Which Column Data Is Located In

Apr 2, 2007

I have a table of data, every entry in the table is different. I need a way in a single cell to determine what column the data is in (and a way to get the row it's in would be nice too), some way to do VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in reverse.

In the attached example I need a function that can take dog and return "1", "A" or even the header "Animal", if another similar function can return the row, that would be nice also but if I can get the column I can get the row. Example

I've tried a few things with creating an array formula to do matches across multiple columns and I can make a multi-cell array that will flag the right column with the right column number, but any attempt to sum/max/match this array formula returns 0 or #N/A

Button Corresponding With Macro Located On Different Sheet Than Data

Aug 11, 2009

I currently have a button on a worksheet that loads a userform. I have code written that's not in a in a separate module but in the user form itself. It uses the information entered on the user form screen. When I try to reference data that's on a sheet other than the one that the button is located on, I get a "select method of range class failed" error. I assume that this problem has to do with the button macro being located on a different sheet than the data. Is there an easy fix?

Delete Temp Files Located On FileSever Via VBA

Aug 22, 2006

Right now the security settings on my server are set so that new files can be added by anyone but only a few people can delete them. Everytime Excel opens a file on the server it creates a temp file that it cannot delete due to the security settings. This means that I have to go in to each subdirectory and manually select then delete each of these temp files.

way to identify an excel tempfile, or a method for deleting these files with VBA?

Displaying What CAMPUS A Student Was LOCATED At On The Course Completion Date?

Jul 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet containing 2 worksheets. First worksheet has my Students Details and the second spreadsheet has their Campus Locations.

What I need to create is a Formula that tells me "What CAMPUS was the student LOCATED at on the Course Completion Date?"


what I'm trying to do is as follows:

John Completes his Course on the 25th July 2013, his Student ID is 450.

I need to go to the CAMPUS LOCATION spreadsheet and first search for Johns student ID (450) in column B. Because John is listed in B2,B3 and B4 excel needs to check date in Column E to see if his completion date was before the Date he started at Campus.

If it is then the Campus he was at will be the value of Column D on that line.

If it is not then it needs to search the next line until it satisfies the condition.
