I update files monthly and save them each month with a new name (eg. Jan, Feb, etc.).
In the file I have a reference from one tab to another tab within the same file. So every time I re-save this file with a new name, it should still reference the cell in the other tab - same file.
BUT on 2 occasions this reference changed to an "external" reference to the previous month's file.
I've been doing this every month for over 2 years and this problem has only happened 2 times. I know others that have experienced this, but nobody knows what caused it.
Does anyone know what would cause this? The biggest problem is that I may not notice this has happened for a long time.
One other thing I might add. I use an older version of Excel (2000). I share these files with other people who may have newer versions (I'm not sure who has what). Can sharing these files with others over a network system have something to do with this? Can opening "read only" when someone else is in the file and then saving as a copy do this?
I have a workbook that need to call for external data (this is information from January till May) from another workbook to manage it. I get this external data as a Tabla_A that needs to be updated continually because the extenal workbooks is adding information constantly. However, now i have to incorporate a specific range of old information (information of December, 2013) before the external data in the same Table_A. This last information wont ever change and needs to be incorporated to analize de information from December till Now.
The problem is when I insert the December information as new arrows at the beginning of Table_A, later I update the table and this old data is remplaced automatic by the external Data range. For that reason, I'm wondering to know if there is some way to have one Table_A with a static range of arrows (december) and another range of arrows (January onwards) that is updatable.
I am trying to use a conditional sum formula where the data resides in and external workbook. This is fine until I close the external workbook and the formula no longer shows the external reference. Is there a way of getting excel to use conditional sums in this way (or what is the best way of achieving this?)
I would like a defined name (1) in my excel document (A) to refer to another defined location (2) in an external document (B), which is a master document that will not move or be renamed. The main document (A) is one which will be copied to numerous locations within our company's network.
Therefore, I need the defined name (1) to have an absolute reference to the external document (B). At the moment I'm only able to get a relative reference, since Excel 'simplifies' the reference when both files are opened. Here is what I'm currently using: ='J:Invoice TemplateOffice list01 231106 List of offices.xls'!SiteNames
Is there a way of writing a formula to create a reference to an external spreadsheet? I have a folder containing 100s of workbooks all based upon a template. I can create a directory listing of this folder using a macro within Excel.
e.g. Directory listing C:My DocumentsReturnsFile1.xls C:My DocumentsReturnsFile2.xls C:My DocumentsReturnsFile3.xls
I would then like to use this list of file paths to create links to several different cells within worksheets contained in each of these. I know that if I did this manually for each worksheet the formula would be a variation on =[C:My DocumentsReturnsFile1.xls]Sheet!Cell. Is there a way that I can automatically create these external references? i.e using values in column A (directory listing) to create many external references, say in column B
I use my directory list and then a formula or macro populates automatically these external references? The file names in the directory change daily (100s of worksheets!) so I don't want to have to manually input these each time. If the folder containing the workbooks was held on an intranet would there be a similar solution?
Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).
Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?
All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?
we have a network of small routers and wifi aps. The Ip range has got a bit out of control so I would like to be able to audit it every once and a while.
how I could go through a set of IPs on a spreadsheet, open a telnet session or whatever, try pinging each ip individually, paste a response or no response in the adjacent column then move to the next ip in the first column (some sort of loop).
Time is not too much of an issue as I could run this overnight if need be.
As a response, the macro could just copy the last line of the ping eg
Minimum = 7ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 7ms if it responds
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
if it does not respond
Col1 col 2 Ip 22.214.171.124 Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
126.96.36.199 Minimum = 7ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 7ms
188.8.131.52 Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
184.108.40.206 Minimum = 3ms, Maximum = 21ms, Average = 9ms
I am trying to develop a formula for internal repayment which must fulfill following requirements(Net cash position-cash needed to start the quarter),the remaining amount goes to internal repayment but that must be <=Begining of the quarter debt owed.
I am trying to find out how to write a formula that will sum the values in one column if the value in a corresponding column is within a range. For example, if the item number in the first column is greater than 2 and less than 7, the sum would be 179. I believe this would be some type of SUMIF but I cannot write it.
I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.
I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.
I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng As Range
On Error GoTo mEnd Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000] If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then If Target = "" Then With Sheets("Log")
I'm trying to set up a direct link to the internal excel calculator, using a button in VBA. I have the shortcut on my own toolbar, but I have many users that use the workbook, and to get them all to set up is almost impossible, so I am trying to make it simple for them.
I've tried doing it through a hyperlink direct to the calc.exe file, but get a lot of messages popping up (that'll scare a few of them). So thought I would try and find the excel name for it and use VBA, but I cannot find it anywhere.
It is suppose to be that if the employee is "FT" and has worked >=4 years the return is 15. But if the employee is FT and has worked 2 years but less than 4 years then it is suppose to return 10 (these are days off) Or if the employee is FT and has worked 1 year, but less than 2 then it should return 5 days off. And all the others in the column get no days off.
I have tried to do it with structured references and with cell references I get a column of zeros!
I have an Excel file that use an internal link from one worksheet to the next. When I click on the link, I'd like it to go directly to a print preview page so I can print that one page instead just switching to the other worksheet. Is this possible?
I have a little spreadsheet aplication which ran perfectly in Office 97, but since the move to Windows/Office XP, I get the message:
Solver: An unexpected internal error occurred, or available memory was exhausted.
I'm running a P4 2.26GHz with 512MB RAM.
My code is as follows:
Public Processing_Message As String, Macro_to_Process As String Public StartTerm As Integer, StopTerm As Integer, StepTerm As Integer Public ResultsLabelCount As Integer Public myErrorFound As Boolean Public rs As Object Public ctl As Control
I'm trying to get a formula to show me the value of one cell based on the value of another to automate some internal processes. Cell J3 returns today's date, then J4 says what week number that is. J5 concatenates the two to make the look up. Column A is named range "PN", and columns C onwards are named ranges to match the column heading.
What I'm wanting is for the result in test cell 2 (J8), is to return the stock requirements for the current week, based on the result of cell J5. I can do this by using nested IF statements, but that would be 8 cells to calculate, then another one to find the cell that has a value. If there a way to get Excel to recognize the value in J5 as a range name, so it just needs the one formula?
I am having trouble creating a hyperlink to a place in the current document for a file stored on a network drive. My workbook has a lot of sheets (50 or so), so I created a 'Navigation' sheet that contains hyperlinks to all the worksheets located therein, and pasted a link back to the Navigation sheet in cell A1 on every tab.
Setting up these Navigation sheets has never a problem until I started posting the file on a network drive. As soon as I did that, I noticed that the internal hyperlinks on all sheets in the workbook would stop working after I closed the file in Excel. Note that this network drive is not set as a drive letter on my computer, and is only accessible by entering the server ip address in Windows Explorer.
An example address the hyper is trying (and failing) to open is: "file:///\ IP ADDRESS sub-folders activefile.xlsm"
I've tried a few options, using the HYPERLINK formula, using the HYPERLINK feature in the Insert ribbon, etc, but all to no avail.
I have a macro that does a solver routine. I have another macro that runs this solver, then copies and pastes new inputs, then runs the solver, then copies the results and pastes them somewhere, then copies new inputs, etc. It is a long process and it worked fine a few days ago. Now when I run it, about 90% of the way through and then excel crashes. The error says:
Solver: An expected internal error occurred, or available memory was exhausted.
I'm trying to make a spreadsheet that references data tables I have pulled from the internet, with the hopes that these tables will update as I refresh the data connections. I'm in the early stages of creating this spreadsheet right now, but whenever I try to refresh my data connections, it takes a tremendous amount of time. I have about 6 connections with 100 row lines total. Is this typical with data connections to the web? Is there a better way to do this?
i have to take the PGN chess game notation file into excel.it is a text file from notepad. it is like this as shown hereunder. how can i get this into columns movewise. ex.1.d4 Nf6 should come in A1 and 2.c4 d6 should come in A2.
I am creating a tool that many people will be using. I need a way to do the following from vba:
1. Click on the "From Web" button under Get External Data section in Data and show the web query pop-up
2. Input the url into the field and press enter
At this point, it will be the user's responsibility to log in w/ their username and password. I have tried to record a macro w/ no success. I just need to get the query open for the user without them having to do anything.
I have some data in tabular form on a sheet. I want to represent this data on a different sheet, but have it be dynamically updated. I'm thinking that the smartest way would be to give the original data a named range, then do some sort of external data referencing to the source from Data - Import External Data. But this sounds kind of silly.
How do I do this? And no, I don't want to use pivot tables because I don't have statistics to populate in the cells...I just want to display the data as is.
I'm wondering if it is a all possible to have a VBA macro call another program (like a Perl scripts, or a Python script) from within VBA?
I have no idea if this is possible. I know that people often write programs which call other programs, but would have no idea where to get started on this.
If it IS possible, can you tell me if it is is extremely complicated?
I have to have a VBA script read some complicated text files, and parse and extract information from them. Perl is so great at this, and I seem to get a headache trying to do any pattern searching and matching with VBA. If it was instead possible to write a Perl script, which is then run by VBA, that would make my life so much easier... :-)
Each job has it's own xls file, this is a list of manually input costs and a total cost at the bottom (total is the same Cell reference: G24) for all xls files. The xls file is named the same as the job - F0001, F0002 etc.
At the end of every month we then want to create a master list xls file for all jobs being invoiced that month. This is a list of all the jobs - F0001, F0002 etc. In Column A, and the corresponding cost totals in column B.
In the master file we want to be able to type in the job reference to column A (i.e. the file names of the single job files -F0001, F0002 etc) and have the corresponding total for that reference display automatically in Column B (i.e. Cell G24 from file F0001 will display in the master file cell B1, when 'F0001' is typed in cell A1).
Ideally the master file would display all the individual entries automatically, so no need to input the job references either - simply scanning the directory for the other files present and creating a list automatically in the master file, alternatively it can get the job reference from Cell A1 in the individual job files, instead of from the file name.
