Cell Formula: All The Links To Update Automatically

May 3, 2006

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.

Links Do Not Automatically Update

Sep 11, 2013

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.

Automatically Update Links Only When File Exists?

Jun 2, 2014

I have a workbook that links to four files. I would like to automatically update the links when the file is opened and if the linked files are not available, don't display a message.

I got the first part done using the Options menu in Excel but can't figure out how to suppress the message when the linked files are not available

Automatically Update External Links To Csv File In 2007

Jan 28, 2010

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:

Sub Auto_Open()
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:ProjectsExcelTestDataSource.csv", ReadOnly:=True
Worksheets("DataSource").Activate
Workbooks("TargetWorkbook.xls").Activate
Windows("DataSource.csv").Visible = xlVeryHiidden
End Sub

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.

Update Formula Links

Nov 3, 2006

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 Of Links In Formula For All Cells

Oct 20, 2006

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

Excel 2010 :: Update Links By Referencing A Cell Value?

Feb 12, 2014

Windows 8.1, Excel 2010. I have this code that updates the links. I use it in various workbooks, but they are all going to the same document; "Data Master (QC"

ThisWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ThisWorkbook.LinkSources

When I change computers, I have to manually tell each document where to fine the linked document. I want the documents being linked to look for the file path in a designated cell, i.e Cell E3 = "C:UsersOwnerDocuments1-QCDataData Master (QC).xlsm".

Something like ThisWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ThisWorkbook.Range("E3").Value

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:

A B
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13
No
10
Yes

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

Update Links And Click Update, Returns #VALUE!

Jun 21, 2007

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)

Autofill; Copy Down It Doesnít 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 doesnít 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?

Link Formula / Update Formula Automatically

Jul 31, 2006

Iím working on quite huge spreadsheets. The same formula will be used on more than 30 sheets.

So far if I have to change the formula in one cell I have to go to each sheet and change it manually (which is quite boring and time consuming).

Iím wondering if itís possible to reference all the formulas on the sheet to one sheet (which some kind of a master sheet with all the formulas).

I can copy the formula with the ďPast SpecialĒ function but the function is not updating if I change the formula on the main sheet.

So is it possible to link it and that itíll be updated automatically when Iím changing the formula on the main sheet?

Formula: Spreadsheet To Automatically Update The Latest Results

Apr 3, 2009

I've adapted a spreadsheet to automatically update the latest results.

But my formula (D11), that I got from here, has now stopped working.

I suspect this is due to the formula I've used columns H and I. But I have no solution.

Also the very similar formula used in M15 to M44 has also stopped working, probably for the same reason.

Update Links When There Are None?

Jan 27, 2009

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.

Cell To Automatically Update

Jan 2, 2010

I am trying to create a simple scoring system for sports that use a "legs" and "sets" format (e.g. tennis, darts etc.)

I would like the "sets" cell to automatically update as the "legs" cell reaches the required amount of legs to win a set. After that I would like the "sets" cell to continue to count upwards when/if another set is won. Is this possible?

Update Links To All Spreadsheets

Jan 13, 2010

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 Object

Jun 27, 2006

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.

Update Links Across Workbooks

Jun 6, 2007

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 Links Without Prompt

Mar 18, 2008

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"

Call ValidSetup
frmCtrlPnl.Show
End Sub

How To Automatically Update Cell References

Dec 20, 2013

Lets say I have two sheets titled "dashboard" and "raw data" in a workbook. Cell A1 in "dashboard" should always show the most up to date data from Row 1 in "Raw Data".

I update "raw data" daily, adding a new column to Row 1. For example December 19 would be A1, December 20 would be B1, December 21 would be C1 etc...How can cell A1 in "Dashboard" always reference the newest cell in Row 1 of "raw data"?

Automatically Update Cell From New Row Entries

May 31, 2006

I have a worksheet(A) with rows of data associated to a date that gets a new row of data points once a month. On the second worksheet(B) I have two columns, one (Current Month) to show the data in the newest row (transposed), and one (Previous Month) to show the data in the row above it (from the previous month)(also transposed). Is there any way to get the columns in worksheet B to automatically read the newest row of data from worksheet A into column Current Month and automatically update the column Previous Month with the row above it?

Links To Data Tables Do Not Update?

Aug 30, 2013

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.

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?

Office 2007 - Where Has The 'do You Want To Update Links' Box Gone

Jan 14, 2008

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.

Slow Update Of Edited Links

Sep 26, 2008

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.
