I am having problems refreshing my querytable.. I used the standard code that I found here in Ozgrid, it downloads the version, but when I changed it on the website, it still shows the old number. It does this until I refresh the website (via web browser). I thought the query table went to the site, and downloaded what was there, but I guess not? ...
i have a sheet that autogenerates a .csv file and uploads it into a webform. In order to do this I have to open an Internet Explorer window go to webpage and use the sendkye function, my code looks like this:
Dim ie As Object
Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") ie.Visible = True ie.Navigate "http://uploadsite/upload.form" 'Check connection til web loop! Do If ie.ReadyState = 4 Then ie.Visible = False Exit Do Else DoEvents End If Loop
if I instead could EMBED the webbrowser into my sheet and then go to the upload site and upload the file directly from the sheet. I have some basic vba skills, but I have never worked with the embedded objects.
I wondered if it would be possible to copy the url from the active page from my browser into Excel using VBA (using a private sub). Something like:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim url As String 'url = the url from my active tab in my browser If Target.Column = 1 And Not IsEmpty(Target) Then Target.Offset(, 1).Value = url End If End Sub where e.g. the active url in my browser is http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=10.
This is probably quite trivial but I really need to know how to call up the standard folder browser from my VBA macro in Excel (and obviously return the selected path to a variable). I'm running windows XP by the way
I have a worksheet that is a graphical display of a call floor with its cubicles. I am able to pop up a box with many details about the workstation in the cubicle (see Display pop-up box when cell selected) for more details, and would now like to go further with this application.
Our practice is to use VNC to review the end users' screens when they call us for assistance; given that I know the machine name and IP address, how can I start a VNC browsing session for the target machine?
I'm relatively new to macro's. I have an excel workbook that draws information from an exported file from a website. When I do this I get an IE window open which is of variable name depending on the information I picked on the website. I am trying to create a macro that will close this new window on importing but leave the original website window where it is. The name is variable but has the same format e.g. "http://batch+report+info....." with the later address changing depending on the info selected. I tried using a an " If name.like" formula but am too new to macro's to know how to implement it.
I am aware that what I am hoping to do may well be impossible because it is possibly application-dependent.
Anyway, I wanted a piece of code that would allow me to open a default browser window from an Excel Macro.
Google turned up the following solution from here [URL] .....
This seems to work just fine.
What I want to do now, however, is something like this:
Is it even possible to write the two hypothetical functions described above?
In addition, I notice that they example given in the link that I posted also suggests ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink. This seems to work just as well, without needing the ShellExecute prototype. Is there any way that I can get a "handle" for the window that was opened with FollowHyperlink and re-focus on that window?
I have 1000 urls to view everyday and identify type of website. Everyday i have to copy that url from excel and paste in browser which consume lot lot time for me. Is it possible to create vba in excel so when i select or move on that url cell (not to click on any click button) url get open in excel only.
I have a spread sheet that I have written that has 2 html links in it. The links work, but they only open in one browser tab. How do I get them to open in different tabs? Opening in two different browser sessions would be acceptable too. I have Excel 2007 and IE 9 but the users may have different versions.
I'm looking to have an excell file shared on a windows network to a simple LAN (samba sharing), and then for a user to be able to click on a HTML link that will launch that excell pile, and to have it populate specific and predeterminined cells with information that will be handed to it by the HTML link from the website.
Think of a CRM web app that href is a link like: "LAN1Filesexcellbook01.xls?Mrs%20Wendy%20Jones?4%20Skin%20Street"
From something like that I would like to launch excell and have Mrs Jones' details populate into the predefined excell sheet. The HTML website can dynamically populate a HTML link depending on the customer being viewed.
So I'd like to know how two things
1) How to launch a network file in this way, while correctly handing it parameters or switched that it will be able to later: 2) Collect that information and distribute it into the cells I choose in VBA.
I'm familiar with Visual Basic .Net primarily, and have a small amount of VBA experience.
We would like to continue to use Google chrome if possible...
