## Create Automatic List In Excel Sheet With Filtered Data From Another Sheet?

Dec 27, 2012

So I have a guest list workbook. There are two sheets. On the first one is a list of names on Column A. On Column B is a classification: 'C' if confirmed; "D" for declined; "I" for pending. I want to have all the names with "C" on sheet 1 appear on sheet 2 automatically.

## Automatic Referenced Linking?

Apr 8, 2007

I have a matrix of numbers that is 6 columns (A,B,C,D,E,F) by 200 rows. The number 4 randomly appears 83 times in this matrix. My objective is to setup a cell outside of the matrix at cell location H1 that will be referenced linked to all of the cells where the number 4 shows up in the matrix using a formula like: "=\$H\$1" inside all of the 83 separate cells where 4 shows up. I am doing this manually, and it is a drag.

Is it possible to make Excel do the linking for you automatically? I'm talking about selecting any region of numbers and then instructing Excel to find all occurances of a number you are looking for and then have Excel setup a link for you by inserting "=\$H\$1" automatically where that number shows up? Therefore, when I go to cell "=\$H\$1" and type in 7, all of the 83 locations where 4 is contained automatically change to 7. Again what I'm trying to avoid is having to manually setup these links. I want to know if Excel can find the occurances of the number 4 (or any other number) in any region I select and then have it do the referenced linking for me to any cell I specify that is outside the region I select.

## Automatic Grades, Linking Tables On Worksheets

Mar 30, 2009

Using Excel 2003,
I'm trying to come up with a formula that will take the students Total Pct. (column G, G12 is first cell & G41 is the last) from the worksheet called Juniors and find their Total grade (Column H, H12 is first & H41 is last) from the worksheet called Total Days. The % column on the Total Days worksheet is A (cells A10:A22) and the Grade column is B (cells B10:B22)

Juniors worksheet

Tot. Pct.

## Linking Two Excel Sheets To Complete Data On One Sheet

Dec 20, 2012

I have two excel sheets, one has partial information (displayName, title, company, streetAddress, city, state, postalCode, Pager, homephone, fax) the other has the missing information that I need on the first sheet.

Sheet 1 (DB1, has partial info) and Sheet 2 (DB2, has the missing info). I need to somehow link these two, and what they both have in common is name. DB1 has "displayName" which is just First Name Last Name (e.g. John Smith). DB2 has First Name and Last Name, but i'll concatenate that to a new column named "displayName" ( which I assume will be needed to link? ).

The missing information in DB1 is title / streetAddress / city / postal code. DB2 has "Location" (which is a company code, and I want to replace the code with the address, city, postal code) and "Group" (which is title).

To make it easier, I could just do a find and replace on DB2 (e.g. A01-DFW-HWY67) and do it that way right? Or is there any easier way to do that?

Other than that though, how would I link DB1 and DB2, using displayName and fill out DB1 with the information from DB2?

## Linking Pivot Table Data To Excel Sheet

May 26, 2014

I am trying to link data from a pivot table we have in excel to a separate excel sheet.

The pivot table contains an up to date list of our inventory, however, we want to take that data and put it in a cleaner looking excel that we can e-mail to customers and publish on our website. Going individually, through every product takes too much time to have an up to date stock every day. Its even difficult to manage if we want to update just once a week.

When I link the cells of the pivot table to the new excel sheet they are constantly changing values as people are constantly editing the filters of the pivot table to look up various things.

## Disable Automatic Absolute References When Linking To External Sheets?

May 30, 2014

Would be a massive time saver but can't find anything here or on Google on how to do this.

## Automatic Date Change In Excel Sheet Print Out?

Mar 29, 2014

At work I have a register/log. Its just a printout of a standard format in excel sheet. I print a month of sheets at a time and write the day and date on it by hand at the top. Is there some formula in excel by which it prints the dates as well in a progressive manner. Eg. If today is 29th May 2014 and today I print 30 copies of the register/log. The first copy has todays date on it and the the next one had tomorrows date....and the 30th copy automatically has the end of April 2014 printed on it.

I've found this code but cannot get it to work.

My workbook is called Shift Log, the worksheet is called v2 and I'm using Excel from MS Office Professional Plus 2010 (32bit)

#Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, _
ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim sDate, i
retryDate:
sDate = InputBox("Enter the starting date, or click 'OK'" & _
" for the current date", "Start Date")

[Code] .........

## Select Automatic Color Scheme (font) For Excel Sheet

Jan 13, 2014

I want to select an automatic colour scheme (font) for an Exel sheet. It has 3 columns with values. If the coloums are A, B & C I want to mark the higher value in red. If B is higher than A, B should be red. Again if C is also higher than B, then C also should be red... like that. Values should be read row-wise. How can I do this using a formula?

## Linking Data (look At Sheet 1 And Populate The Date Columns With The Guest Name From Sheet 1)

Jan 7, 2009

Sheet 1 contains a column titled "name" and 6 columns to the right of name titled "sat", "sun", "mon"........ the col titled name is not the first col in the work sheet.

In each row I enter the guest name under the name col and I enter a room number (example: 1A, 1B, 2A, etc...) in the column to the right that coresponds with the day the guest will be staying.

Name Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri

Mr. Smith 1A 1A 1A 1A
Mr. Jones 3B 3B 3B
Ms. Tiller 4A 4A 4A 4A 4A 4A 4A

Sheet 2 is in the same workbook and looks something like this:

Room # Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri
1A
1B
2A
2B
3A
3B

I want it to look at sheet 1 and populate the date columns with the guest name from sheet 1

I tried this formula =IF('Sheet1'!G:G="1A",'Sheet1!\$F:\$F,"Available")
It seems to work on the first row but I have problems with any rows below that. Basically it acts like there is no data in the rows below.... I think the fact that the names on sheet 1 are not alphabetical is creating part of my problem? I tried a lookup formula but it seems like it has to be the first column in the worksheet and it has to be alphabetical to work like that.

## How To Automatic Merge Data From Sheet To Another Sheet With Same Format

Mar 28, 2014

how to merge data automatically in one sheet (master sheet) from specific sheet with different name sheet but same format?

Adding, deleting or editing should be automatic update to master sheet.

For example:

Sheet name:

Sheet 1: Salesman 1 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 2: Salesman 2 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 3: Salesman 3 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 4: Salesman 4 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 5: Salesman 5 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 6: Salesman 6 - with data range A10:F310 (as his data file)
Sheet 7: All Salesman - - with prepared data range A11:F2000 (as master data file/record for 6 salesman)

Column Name as a Header:

A10: Customer Number
B10: Customer Name
C10: Salesman ID
D10: Promotion Type
E10: Promo Item
F10: Free Item

## Automatic Macro That Runs From Every Sheet But Only Based On One Sheet

May 13, 2014

I have an automatic macro that runs from every sheet but is only based on one sheet. I had to protect the worksheet and in order to make the macro work I had to add an unlock and a lock code. The problem now is every time a user enters something it looks back to the other sheet and then comes back. Is there a way to prevent the user from seeing this. See code below

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Sheets("Profit Calc Local Currency").Unprotect Password:="hspricing1"
Application.EnableEvents = False
Dim lr As Long
lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "XEA").End(xlUp).Row
Range("\$XEA\$1:\$XEA\$" & lr).AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="1"
Sheets("Profit Calc Local Currency").Protect Password:="hspricing1"
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

## Linking Cells For Update On One Sheet It Updates My Last "customer Touch" On A Master Sheet

Aug 24, 2009

I am tracking my sales interactions and am trying to link cells so when I update on one sheet it updates my last "customer touch" on a master sheet. Current formula-

On "sheet1" I selected a cell and used this formula... =sheet2!\$b\$7

The problem is that I want to keep a history of what was in that sheet 2 B7 cell so i insert a row (making B7 move down and become B8) and enter new info into the new b7. if I go back to sheet1 the formula in the selected cell becomes =sheet2!\$b\$8 I want it to stay to =sheet2!\$b\$7 no matter what I do... insert rows, delete rows etc...

in short what i am trying to do is have a cell in sheet1 show my last interaction with the customer and keep a history of in sheet2-infiniti.... with the caveat that my last interaction on sheet 2 etc... is listed first (thus the insert row)

## Linking First Column Of Sheet 1 And Sheet 2?

Jul 20, 2014

I want to be able to associate the first row and first column of Sheet 2 to Sheet 1. I need to make sure the data in each row stays next to its corresponding cell in the first column, even with changes in the first column. The data that is not the labels in row 1 and column 1 are different between Sheet 2 and Sheet 1, however.

To clarify what I'm looking for, I attached an example excel file where I manually entered stuff for each cell that describes what I want to have automated:

The first row and first column of Sheet 2 are always equal to the first row and first column of Sheet 1. However, the data in between them is different. When I add the 'bb' cell into Sheet 1, the 'bb' cell needs to be automatically updated into Sheet 2 and a new row is inserted in both sheets. It is important that the corresponding data for each of a, b, c, d stays next to a, b, c, d, respectively in both sheets (i.e. I want a blank row next to the 'bb' cell in both sheet 1 and sheet 2).

EDIT: In the file that I have attached, there are four sets of data all on one sheet. In reality the 'Sheet 1' set would start on top left corner of Sheet 1 and the 'Sheet 2' set would start on top left corner sheet 2, I just put them this way so you can see them all at once.

## Linking Data From One Sheet To Another

Nov 22, 2013

So I have 2 spreadsheets of Car Inventory Data that I want to export into what will be printed out as Addendum Stickers...basically we're offering a new product with all vehicles and need to update the Sticker Price to reflect the change. The main worksheet with all of the data I'm trying to export is as follows:

Column A:
Stock Number
Example: (Column, Row A3) T12345

Column B:
Model Number
Example: (Column, Row B3) 1234A

Column C:
VIN Number
Example: (Column, Row C3) ABCDEFG12A3456789

Column D:
Retail Price
Example: (Column, Row D3) \$20,100

Column E:
New Product Cost
Example: (Column, Row E3) \$399

Column F:
Model Name
Example: (Column, Row G3) Camry
----

Now the price of the new product being added in is the same: \$399. All data runs in rows (A3-E3, A4-E4, etc.). I AutoSum'ed each row and output the new calculated price into Column F next to each row of vehicles.

----

I want to take the Stock Number, Model Number, VIN Number, Retail Price, New Product Price and New Updated Total or Columns A-F and output them into multiple sheets:

Example:

Company Name (B1-C1)

## Linking A CheckBox To A Different Sheet

Nov 13, 2006

I Am wondering if you can use a checkbox, to update a cell on a different sheet in the same workbook. CheckBox 1 is the box on say, Tab 2. And if it was ticked, would transfer the name to Say Sheet 2, cell B7.

## Linking Sheets Into One Major Sheet

Apr 12, 2006

I have a large workbook, split into sheets, with very complex formulas in it.
I want one sheet at the end of this workbook to reflect all the data from the
other sheets, if you know what I mean - so it is ALL the data from the
different sheets, in one "all info" sheet.

I also want it to update automatically so I don't have to re-enter lots of data when updating the
separate sheets. Is there any way of doing this? I have looked at some of the
answers on here but I got very lost.

Oct 19, 2012

I need to link this summary sheet projects to this plant and equipment list sheet to show each project numbers separate weekly cost hire on the summary sheet.

## Dynamic Linking To A Cell On Sheet

Mar 4, 2009

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Sheet2!\$M\$2:\$M\$11=Sheet1!\$B\$3),--(Sheet2!\$N\$2:\$N\$11=Sheet1!\$B\$4),Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$11)
inthe above quoted formula last part "Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$11" is the data for Jan in sheet2, if I need Feb results I need to change it to "Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$B\$11"

Is there a way to make it dynamic by linking this to a cell on sheet1? Example if sheet1 A1 cell contains name of month, by changing that the results should also change?

## Crashes When Linking To Other Sheet Or File

Jan 13, 2010

my excel has developed the nasty habit of crashing when i try to link to another sheet or file.

i tried to copy the sheets to another file, and that worked.... for a while. i just cannot think to see what i do that causes this....

i am running excel 2003 (cheapskate company) and windows xp

## Linking Columns In Excel Together

Jul 18, 2014

I have a list of countries in excel and a list of partner countries, the countries all have individual country codes.

Example:
country partner country exporter country code importer country code year value
Australia..........Belgium........................AUS.........................BEL..1999..1000

This for a long list of countries, I have filled in the country codes for the first year manually but the list goes on to 2008 and is a lot of work to do manually, (thousands of cells). is there a way to complete the list of exporter and importer codes linked to the country and partner country column and then complete the whole list?

## Linking Copy Onto Hidden Sheet For Backup

Nov 15, 2012

I have a database (attached) that has data entered into the "Progression" sheet. This data is continually updated, and once each row has a section date, I have a macro that moves the data from "Progression" to the "Complete" sheet (and from there, into a specific month sheet). I AM REALLY CONCERNED with data accidentally getting deleted (especially when/after getting moved to "Complete"). I know that you can link cell values from one worksheet to another, but since my data is continually changing in the Progression and Complete sheets, the linkage wouldn't maintain the correct cell values from day to day. Is there a better approach to creating "backup" data in excel than this linkage option? Preferably something that runs in the background without my input?

An option could be that I move my data from Progression into both the Complete sheet and then a hidden "Master" sheet when I run the macro. If I chose that route, how would I modify my coding to include transferring to the Master sheet as well?

Lastly, a simple linkage between the Master sheet and another sheet in a second workbook should be sufficient as a backup method?

## Summary Sheet Linking To Multiple Files

May 6, 2009

I am trying to create a summary sheet that automatically gets information from files in a folder.

Lets say I have two folders - Data and Summary. Data folder has many files. Files are added regularly. The files are named in systematic way in following format:
[Unit Number][Type][Job Number]

Exampleas of Unit Number: 75845, JBKU238547-6, T-546
Types: ae, hydro, noret, refurb
Examples of Job Number: 96789, 96780, 95847

The example of a filename will be like this: T-546refurb96780. Each file has a field called test date and up to 13 rows of information in tabular format.

Now, in my Summary file in folder Summary, I would like to automatically get values from all the files that are in the folder Data. If a file is added in the Data folder, the Summary file should automatically know that. The summary has to be sorted based on the test date.

I would like to assign 13 rows for each unit.

## Linking Cells To Unique Text On Other Sheet?

Apr 4, 2007

I'm trying to link values from one worksheet to another (in same workbook). I'm nearly there, but falling down on one area. Say on sheet2 I have these values(in columns A and B):

C1 100pf
C2 100pf
C3 100pf
C4 100pf
C5 100pf
C6 100pf
C7 100pf
C8 do not fit
C9 do not fit
C10 do not fit.............

## Automatic Sheet Numbering

Nov 5, 2008

I have a report blank that is comprised of numerous excel worksheets (fixed letter size). During the completion of the report, one may add, delete, and/or move worksheets. I want each worksheet to have a cell that dispalys 'page # of total number of sheets'. Is there a way to automatically update this information?

## Automatic Looking Up Data In Another Sheet

Dec 16, 2009

It i a sheet to calculate my nutrition. But since the sheets has grown to get bigger and bigger (and fortunately me as well ) some bugs has started to appear. This is really annoying and I have to use another sheet with less values in it which I can use manually on the side since it seams to only work properly when less values is entered in the sheet.

Open the file attached. The first sheet called "oversikten" is where you can see the trouble. The gray fields you can edit freely and in these fields you should be able to insert a type of product (food) which also is in the list in the nexy sheet called "produkter", and the first sheet should then automatically get the values for the written product given you have written the exact same word as the product in the list (list: in the "produkter" sheet). But for some reason this has stopped working. Now only a few in the beginning of the list is working as it should and most of the products will not be transferred to the first "oversikten" sheet. I've only copied codes and stuff so I have no idea what is wrong and how to fix this.

fix the codes in the program so that any product written in "oversikten" will get its correct values transferred from the "produkter" sheet for all the registered products now and for the new ones I enter in the future. I love this little nutrition program of mine.

## Automatic Sheet Generation

Nov 3, 2008

I have only two sheets..first sheet is the user sheet where the user gives the data...second is the sheet where in we get the result according to user given data..

there is a cell in User sheet where User gives a Number. for example " 8 "

so sheet2 : here we have only 9 rows. as user gave "8" the fisrt 8 cells in the first column should see like this

B 01/08 , B02/08 , B03/08 as so on till B08/08

when user gives 9 in user sheet

then the first sheet is finished with all the 9 rows ending with B09/08

when user gives 10...then sheet 3 should automatically appear with the first row and first colum saying B10/08.

when user gives 20 in user sheet...then sheet4 should appear with last number as B20/08

so each sheet is having only 9 rows..

first sheet ends with B09/08
second sheet ends with B18/08
third sheet ends with B27/08

## Linking Graphs From Excel To PowerPoint (Only Once)

May 6, 2014

I have an excel that gets updated monthly for reporting. The goal is to get the graphs to update automatically by linking them from excel into power point. This is relatively easy but what when I go to update the report for the next month the data for the old power point changes as well. Is there a way to prevent this?

## Linking And Ignoring In Excel Graph

Dec 29, 2006

I have two issues with an excel graph to automate it.

My first problem is that I have to manually select the source data when the data changes inside my spreadsheet. I have 35 slots that represent a 5 week period. Because the first day of the month does not always start on the first day of the week, I have to allow the extra 5 slots in my template. I have the cells set to show blank when there is no data entered in certain cells. Therefore, only days that the machine is up gets put into the 35 cell table. When I do this, the blank cells show up as 0 on the graph and it skews the line. I need some solution that will allow me to tell the graph to ignore zeros.

The second issue is the title in my graph. I have a set title, but need it to pull "Month Year" and "c81" from the worksheet it is on. I cannot seem to get it to populate automatically in the label. I would like it to look like the following:

614 Machine Uptime Percentage
%Month Year%
MTD PCT (%c81%)

where the %name% is the automatically populated item. I don't necessarily have a problem with hiding a cell and linking the label to that cell inside the graph, but I need it to change those two items automatically.

Im certain that a resolution to both of these items exist and I am certain it is an easy thing that I will be kicking myself in the rear over once I find out the resolution, but I need to get this done and im tired of wasting time. I hope this makes sense. If you need me to post an excel file as an example, I will be more than happy to.
