# Version Limitations On Countifs Functions?

Mar 27, 2014

I recently bought a new Dell XPS 10 tablet with a keyboard. When I copied my spreadsheets from my old notebook, none of the countifs or countif functions are working, all popping out a zero. It work completely fine on my old notebook on which I have Excel 2010 installed. On the tablet I have the pre-installed Home & Student 2013 RT. Could this version have limitations to my functions? What can I do to get my functions working again?

## Using Analysis Toolpak Functions On Non-English Version

Feb 28, 2007

A workbook was created using the English version of Excel. It uses Analysis Toolpak functions.

When the workbook is opened on a Spanish version Excel system, embedded functions - like IF, AND, OR translate to Spanish. Other functions, like NETWORKDAYS, do not.

Any cross-language users have a tool for this? Other than doing a Find/Replace or creating custom functions.

## Nested IF And COUNTIFS Functions

Feb 23, 2010

I would like Excel to look at column A, and if there is a number0, count it and go to the next row. If it's =0, then go to column B and see if THAT number is 0. If it is, count it; if not, go to C. So my data looks like:

A B C
0 2 3
4 0 0
0 0 0

I only want it to count one time per row, so right now I am using =IF(COUNTIFS(A2:A30,"0",B2:B30,"0")0,COUNTIFS(A2:A30,"0",B2:B30,"0"),IF(COUNTIFS(B2:B30,"0",C2:C30,"0")0,COUNTIFS(B2:B30,"0",C2:C30,"0"),0)))

I also tried it with a SUMPRODUCT to simplify but both formulas are getting me the wrong answer. I'm using Excel 2007.

## Limitations Of Lookup(2,1)

Nov 25, 2009

I'm currently using a Lookup(2,1) that looks up an unopened excel sheet stored locally.

When I enter the formula I always get a #NA.

What I was wondering was if its a limitation of the lookup funcation, or my PC not having enough resources.

The linked XL sheet is ~10mb, and has over 8000 rows.

Below is my current forumla that results in a #NA

=LOOKUP(2,1/('[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!\$B\$1:\$B\$8500&":"&'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!\$E\$1:\$E\$8500&":"&'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!\$M\$1:\$M\$8500&"Team Leader"&":James Kinsey"&":""Privilege"),'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!\$Q\$1:\$Q\$8500)

## Time Limitations In File

Aug 22, 2006

We have an Excel file that is located on the network and is accessed by numerous individuals. Should someone need access when another user has the file open, we get a message that the file is currently in use and it also lists the user id of that person. The issue is that a particular user will open the file and keep it on their desktop for hours at a time. Is there a way to limit the amount of time that user can have the file open? Is there something within Excel that I can turn on that should the file not be modified for a particular amount of time that Excel saves the file and closes it down?

## Visual Limitations Of Cells From One Computer To Another

Nov 19, 2013

I got this wonderful, beautiful spreadsheet/template i'm using now for my small business, and well, i've got it all tweaked and tuned so it looks beautiful on my screen (100% view in excel). I can look at it, and they way it looks, is the way it prints whether i opt for a PDF or (EEEEEK!) paper. I've sent this report and template i've put together with Mrexcel's support, and it's all primp and pretty and the person i send the spreadsheet to for review? he's looking at it at the same 100%, and lines are cut off when multiple rows are merged that have multiple sentences typed (technically reference to) in. he's tried to print both pdf and paper from his computer and had no issue. it comes out perfect. It only looks visually cut off. we're trying to avoid a second transmission back to me to reformat say something needs to be omitted. QA if you will.

my question: Is this some sort of issue relative to our screen resolution? is there a way i can optimally get what he is seeing when he views it electronically to be what i'm seeing electronically?

## Limitations On The Sheet.Copy Method

Jan 28, 2007

I have a macro that copys a worksheet a user-inputted number of times but throws an error after adding Sheet #62. The line it hangs on is:

Sheets(myTemplate).Copy After:=Sheets(i - 1)

Does anyone know if this is a problem with my code, a memory issue, or the workbook I'm using to copy? In the past when I've copied a lot of sheets in a workbook (to the same workbook), Excel sometimes won't let me add anymore but if I copy all the sheets to a new workbook it will sometimes let me add more sheets. I figured it was a problem with how Excel counts sheets.

Sub CopySheets()
myTemplate = ActiveSheet.Name

'First, jump through the validation hoops
Dim AddSheetQuestion As Variant

'Define the application input box question
showAddSheetQuestion:
AddSheetQuestion = Application.InputBox("Please enter the number of sheets you want to add," & vbCrLf & _
"or click the Cancel button to cancel the addition:", _
"How many sheets do you want to add?")

'Cancel or the X was clicked
If AddSheetQuestion = False Then..................................

## Hyperlink Folder Level Limitations

Jun 15, 2007

I am writing a macro that scrapes information from other workbooks. I wanted to add a hyperlink on each line to the workbook that row's information came from. I tried both the VBA method of adding a hyperlink as well as the formula method. When I click on the link that was created, windows explorer opens up to a folder rather than opening the workbook. I have a feeling I am hitting some folder level limitation. The link is to a network share and here is an example of what it looks like:

\MYCOMPANY.CORPFILESCBOSEALDRIVEDeptROPSPT Billing2007 AdjustmentsMCBDApproved#01305.20075.25.07 - C - NAME.xls

## Excel 2002 :: Limitations In Shared Workbook

Jul 20, 2013

I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.

I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.

## Excel 2007 :: Nested Formula Limitations

Dec 29, 2011

I'm trying to do a nested formula to automatically assign a region number based on what the County is. We have 88 counties we deal with, split into 7 regions. What is the best way to go about setting up a formula to do this, so I don't have to do it manually? I believe the last time I tried doing something like this, I received an error saying that Excel didn't support a formula as big as what I was writing.

## Data Validation Limitations- Shortened Formula

Jun 14, 2007

I am trying to use the validation feature to calculate a check digit and the formula is too long to put in validation. I rewrote the formula to be shorter using math features instead of text, but apparently you can't use arrays in validation. Because of certain distribution constraints, using VBA is not possible so a UDF is out. Can either of these be shortened in anyway? I am not sure if it is even technically possible to solve this problem with these constraints.

Here is the "human readable" explanation of formula:
(Accept only 10 digit numeric value.)
Example Number: 123456789-3
Digits 1,3,5,7,9 are multiplied by 2 (weighted 5)
So 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 becomes 2,2,6,4,10,6,14,8,18Weighted 5's multiplied values then have their individual digits added (ex:12=1+2=3)
So 2,2,6,4,10,6,14,8,18 becomes 2,2,6,4,1,6,5,8,9
Weighted 5's sum is added to the sum of the Nonweighted 4 digits.
So 2,2,6,4,1,6,5,8,9,3 becomes 43
Add 24 to sum.
43+24 = 67

Checksum = (10-(67 mod 10)) mod 10
(Sum round up to 10 minus sum)

## Match Limitations: Not Finding Value In Cells With Alot Of Text.

Feb 9, 2007

I think Match has trouble finding a value thats within a cell containing a lot of words.

Heres the example. I'm trying to find the word "Hello world" in cell B1, in Column A.

Column A
1 Lots of Text
2 Text Text. Hello world. text text
3 Text Text

Cell B1
Hello world

Column B2
Match("*"&B1&"*",A:A,0)

When theres only 1 sentence in Cell A2, the function works and returns 2.
However, when Cell A2 contains a few paragraphs the function returns #NA.

I don't necessarily need to use Match, if this is indeed a limitation does anyone of suggestions to work around, other than vlookup?

## Specify Excel Version To Run VB6

Jan 15, 2009

I have Excel 2003 and 2007 on my computer and I want open excel from vb6 but they are both called Excel.exe. So it opens both of them when I run my code. I renamed one of the exe's and I was going to do it that way but then it was going to do a whole bunch of reinstalling.

Can I specify which version of excel I want to run, in vba or vb6 code ?

Maybe by specify the path some how.

## Version Number?

Jan 19, 2010

If I want to create an Excel file that other users would use, and want to create a specific version number of the file. Is there a place I can save that information outside of the worksheets?

For example, lets say I create a file that is version 1.0. Can I save that somewhere in "Properties" or somewhere else so that "1.0" can't be modified, and if I come out with a different version say 2.0, I can update it?

## Set Default Version

Aug 23, 2007

As per title, I have both Excel 2003 & 2007 installed - I need to set 2003 as the default for opening xls files when double-clicking but can't seem to override 2007 which wants to hog all the action. I've been through the File Types menu and selected the 2003 version of Excel as the default, but it doesn't make the slightest difference.

## VBA To Change A Particular Cell Version 2

Dec 10, 2008

In a previous thread I asked for a solution to the following problem

Cells
A1 = 1
A2 = 2
A3 = 3
A4 = 4
etc.

What I want to do is when I click on cell A1 the value is put in cell C1.
When I click on cell A2, C1 changes to to A2 value and so on.

VERSION 2
The VBA I received is good for 1 range.
Is there a way to use multiple ranges? In my example above column A is the 1st range and cell C1 changes accordingly. Now i would like to use column B as a 2nd range and have cell D1 change accordingly.

## Automatically Update To New Version?

Sep 25, 2009

I have an excel based appliction that I distribute to about 150 people in the US, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Distribution is currently done by email containing a link to a Sharepoint site (the email has the link, release notes, etc). The end users open the file and save it to their desktops, overwritting the previous version. I'm finding that many users are not updating their versions as they should be.

So what I'm wondering is if there's a way to have this process automated - so that when the user opens the file, it checks a repository (sharepoint or otherwise) for a more current version, then prompts the user to download it.

## Trapping File Version In VBA?

Dec 11, 2012

how I could amend the following code so that my target worksheet includes file versions? The worksheet range "Folder" contains a string specifying the target folder and the worksheet range "IncludeSubFolders" is either TRUE or FALSE. I can trap FilePath, FileName, FileSize and DateModified fine but not File Version (I'm working with DLL libraries).

Code:

Dim iRow As Long
Sub ListFiles()
iRow = Range("DatabaseStart").Offset(1, 0).Row
Call ListMyFiles(Range("Folder"), Range("IncludeSubFolders"))
End Sub

## Multipage - Vertical Tab Version

Jun 9, 2007

I need to create a multipage with tabs running down the left hand side. I cannot use the normal horizontal multipage control because this would result in an impossibly wide page. Is there a vertical multipage control? I could not find one? Or a way to convert the multipage control to show vertical tabs?

Please bare in mind that this vertical multipage will be shown in a form that already includes a normal horizontal multipage (I am using multipages within multipages too!).

## Database Version Control

Mar 11, 2009

We have a club membership database in Excel 2003. Unfortunately too many people can change it and we sometime use an old version for a mailout when there is a later version around. We have no easy, foolproof way of establishing which is the latest version.

Is there a way that a cell in the database can automatically have the date & time it was last changed (NOT last time it was read - Windows does that). Also a user name.
Failing that, is it possible to detect when anything has changed & when you try to close the file it requests a date & user which have to be entered before it closes ( this relies on the user putting in valid info but at least it's a start).
Ideally when you re-open the file it should say in A1, A2 - last changed .... by .....

## Run Different Code Based On Version

Aug 2, 2008

I am writing an excel 'tool' that must be compatabile with both Excel 2003 and Excel 2007. I originally wrote some functions using Application.Filesearch, and had to re-write that code due to the lack of Application.Filesearch in Excel 2007 (I used the chdir method). The chdir method is much slower the way I am using it, therefore, I would like to still use the Application.Filesearch method for those using Excel 2003. Now, I have the user select their excel version and run the correct macro. Is there a way to detect the Excel Version automatically and the call the correct macro?

## VBA Test For Finding Excel Version?

Dec 7, 2008

Is there a way in vba to test to see what version of Excel is being used? My macro would crash if their data would exceed the 65K row limit in Excel 2003. I have a message that pops up if they do that, and it handles the problem just fine, but if they are ALREADY using Excel 2007 (or whatever comes later) I don't want the message to appear.
