I am sure this is going to be something simple?
When entering a number in a cell (i.e mobile) and clicking away from the cell
the zero is not saving? i.e 7766.
I did go into the format options and play about with the numbering and general options but was unable to solve?

Answer:Zero not saving in Excel worksheet?

First select the column and format as text.
Or enter with an apostrophe in front of the value.
Or you could format, for instance, a 7-digit number with a custom format of 0000000

I am exporting report data from an accounting program into Excel 2003, then having to change some of the worksheet data into to a specific format (some columns show dates, phone numbers, etc - which need to be converted to text - translation:HEADACHE) and then saving file as ".csv" to submit reports online to another agency. I am pulling my hair out here because it keeps changing to funky formats in the .csv sheet and I find myself back at square one. I am required to do this on a monthly basis, and will soon be submitting a similar file to a different agency, so I will double my headache if I can't get my head wrappred around this.

Any help would be great!!!

Hey All,

Is there a way in Microsoft Money 2004 to open up my checking account register and than export (copy) the account register to an Excel Worksheet? I don't want to just send a report, I want to copy my checking account to an Excel Workbook so that when I open the Excel Worksheet, it looks like a checkbook register.

I than want to be able to enter data into my Excel Workbook and use this as a backup of my check register.

I would like to collect data out of another worksheet with more than 600 lines; this worksheet is structured like this:

Column A: Name or "not required"
Column B: Sum

I'm OK with the formula which searches through column A and retrieves the sum of all amounts with the same name (=SUMIF) in column B.

What I can't figure out is a way to skip lines with "not required" or where a name has been found before, i.e.

I budget with Excel and was wondering if it was possible to send an email to a specified email address and upon receiving the mail, Outlook executing a rule or something similar and it editing an Excel worksheet for me. My main goal is to, after purchasing an item, sending an email or text to a specified email address and then that info going straight into an Excel worksheet. Yes, I know I can do this manually but just out of curiosity I'd like to know if this is remotely possible. Thanks.

Answer:Is it possible to email data to an Excel worksheet?

You could do that with a Powershell or VB script that checks periodically for new mail to a specific account and then parses the mail message for particularly formatted message data.

The machine running it would need to have Outlook or another email client that supports COM object automation installed.

I am using Excel 97 with two worksheets. On one worksheet I have a query pulling info from an Access database query. On the other worksheet I have a report that uses formulas and the information pulled. However, say the query fills up rows 1-10, and after updating the query it fills rows 1-14, the report worksheet does not look to the cells refernced in the formulas, it seems to look for the information within the cell it had before the update. It ignores any new data that has been added to the bottom and gives ref errors for any new data rows within the original 1-10 rows. The absolute and relative cell reference does not seem to make a difference.
What is up with this?
I was thinking maybe making the pulled infomation a linked object but I can't paste the querry as a link. I am not even sure that would make a difference if it is an issue between the two worksheets rather than between excel and access.

I need to write a formula to merge data from two Excel Spreadsheets. Both spreadsheets are located on my local “C” hard drive on my computer. The spreadsheets are used to track technician visits to stores. The primary spreadsheet is called “Compliance” and has mostly information about the stores. The second spread sheet is called “Access” and has information about the technicians and their visits to the stores. The data is alpha numeric. Each spreadsheet has a column of data in common which is called “Store Number”. On both spreadsheets the Store Number data occupies Column A.

I need to copy the four columns from my spreadsheet called Access onto my Compliance spreadsheet and have the data from Access line up with the data from Compliance by matching via the Store Number field. I would like to have all four columns from Access end up to the left of the data on my Compliance spreadsheet. I have been trying to set up a VLookup formula but I have not been able to get it to come out right, maybe I am using the wrong formula or going about this wrong.

If anyone has any suggestions they will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi there all, can someone please help?
I have a scenario that I want to create but lack the required knowledge.
I have a worksheet created and working.
I want to be able to enter data into this worksheet, perhaps on Row 27.
I then want a selection of cells from this row to appear in another worksheet / workbook, as the next available empty row.
For instance,
when entering data into Row 27 of workbook 'NonWebPurchases' worksheet 'Hardware'
The data should automatically appear in some cells of row 42 of workbook 'Accounts' worksheet 'creditCard', this being the next available empty row
when entering data into Row 72 of workbook 'NonWebPurchases' worksheet 'CleaningSupplies'
The data should automatically appear in some cells of row 43 of workbook 'Accounts' worksheet 'creditCard', this being the next available empty row
Hope that this is clear and rather simple to solve.
I already link data from worksheet to worksheet without any problems.
Thanks in advance for ANY suggestions.

Answer:Excel worksheet linked data creation

Hi there, welcome to the board!

You'll need VBA for such automation. To do so, you'll need to clearly define what goes where and under what circumstances (logic) this should be done. Also, what if you change the data, or select the cell and enter the same twice, do we need to worry about duplication? Also, something to think about, doing this will generally have a large overhead in lieu of opening other files. It is best if you can keep the information contained within one workbook. Is this something where you could merge workbooks and move all sheets/data to one place? If so, that would generally be preferred.

Hello. I am hoping for a speedy response if possible.
I have about 2000 excel workbooks representing data for the last 4 years. Each workbook has 7 worksheets. I would like to create a new worksheet in a new file that will pull the value from one single cell in one single sheet from each of the other 2000 files. It is the same cell, same sheet in every file.
I have tried using microsoft query to pull the data but i can't seem to make it work. Does anyone know if what i am trying to do is actually possible? And if so can you tell me how? I think I am getting close on my own and I enjoy this sort of thing but I don't have the time! ANy assistance is much appreciated.

I also should mention, as a disclaimer, that I did NOT generate these files. Had I done so, and known in what ways they would need to be used, I would have used Access.

Answer:Auto Tabbing in Excel Worksheet Data Entry

Hey Fred,

Try this. When you enter data in a cell use TAB to go to the next cell and continue along using Tab until you need to go back to the first column. When you get to the last cell in that row, enter your data and then hit ENTER.

This then returns to the next row in the first column.

Answer:Excel Macro to copy user specified data to new worksheet

re: "I have limited VB knowledge and looking for somebody to help."Does "limited knowledge" mean that you can take some generic code and modify it to fit your specific needs (change search ranges, sheets names, etc.) or are you looking for a complete and working macro?If it's the former, I can throw something together.

In other words, will there typically be more than one date found between the start and end dates?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

My data is a database dump with thousands upon thousands of records and for my purposes I want to create a semi-refreshing excel dashboard that will show the data I want to extract. Basically I am dumping the database to an excel tab but can also access the database so getting to the data is not the problem. What I would like to do is get the data based on criteria and add it to an excel worksheet with a row being created based on the successful criteria of the data.Basically my data looks like this:## DATA FILE TAB ##[![Data file sample][1]][1] [1]: this is what I want the data to end up looking like. One thing to keep in mind is that I can't simply populate a worksheet as I need to be able to create new rows once "good data" has been filtered.## Formatted Worksheet ##[![Formatted Worksheet][2]][2] [2]: for your help in advance.

Answer:How do I add rows of data to new worksheet from data dump

I'm not quite sure what kind of help you are asking for. Your subject line asks about "adding rows to a new worksheet" yet you posted an image [2] of data that is apparently sorted in some way and formatted with different font sizes and fill colors. In addition, the 2nd contains data that doesn't even appear in the original data set.What exactly are you asking for help with? Are you asking us to help create that 2nd, formatted sheet or are you asking for help with adding rows to that formatted sheet? I also don't understand this line:with a row being created based on the successful criteria of the data.What does "successful criteria of the data" mean?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Apologies if this isn't the correct forum but im having problems saving spreadsheets in excel. When saving to a specific folder on my hard drive I receive the error message "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy)". It doesn't happen every time but most of the time. It only happens in Excel and only happens when saving to one specific folder. Does anyone have any ideas about the problem?


Answer:"Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy)" - message received when saving in Excel 2003

The hard drive has a bad sector under that folder?

Test the hard drive with the manufacturer-provided utililty to confirm.

The bad sectors can be marked unusable with the chkdsk utility to make Windows work around the bad areas, but you should consider repacing that drive.

I have an Excel worksheet using 52 tabs each one being the weekly financial period in a year. On the first tab there is a list of products (and associated sales data) that will be added to throughout the year.

My question is what is the best way of ensuring that all the following tabs (Week 2 onwards) will pick up the correct data from the previous one?

I've tried referencing the cell to the previous weeks one but this looks messy - zerio's where there's no data etc. - unless I'm doing that wrong

I have a folder with .csv and .txt files in it that I get every month from clients. 1. I need to get them into one Excel spreadsheet to do analysis with the information. I know I need to create a macro or a series of macros to be able to do this, but I really don't know how to begin. The information consists of three parts, I ultimately would like the macro to be able to seperate these individual parts and drop it on a seperate sheet within this workbook.... OR 2. I would like to be able to eliminate this first step and create an append query in Access to import the information into a table.

To the best of my knowledge, unless you saved each worksheet separately before making changes to it and then saved THAT worksheet, then you have overwritten the same file with new data. There would be no different files to retrieve practically.

I have an excel worksheet with 50,000 different book isbn, one isbn per cell. Out of the 50,000 there are about 20,000 or 30,000 duplicates with varies qtys. Is there a way to consolidate the duplicate isbn and qty to a single cell without having to do it manually. In column A I have all the isbn and Column B the qty

Answer:consolidating data in a single worksheet

There's lots of ways depending on what you are looking for as the output.One simple way is to create a Filtered Lst of Unique values someplace else in your workbook and then use SUMIF.Select Column AData...Filter...Advanced FilterCopy to another location (e.g. G1)Unique valuesThis should creat a list containing a single instance of each ISBN.In H2 enter this and drag it down:=SUMIF(A:A, G2, B:B)This will SUM the cells in Column B which correspond to the value in the criteria argument whenever it's found in Column A.

I want to search one worksheet for employee ID (column named employee ID) and place that number in the blank employee ID column on the 2nd worksheet based on employee name. The first and last names are in separate columns on both worksheets. Both first AND last names must match in order to copy the employee id number. Is this even possible in Excel?

Answer:search one worksheet and copy data to another

There are two ways you can do this, and it's dependendant on how your ID number is configured.If it is ALL numbers then a =SUMPRODUCT() function can get the dataIf is a mix of numbers and Text or all Text then the =VLOOKUP with a helper column should work.If your data looks like this:=SUMPRODUCT() - ID's must be numbers.
Sheet 1
1) Last First ID
2) Public John 123
3) Jones David 234
4) Smith Joe 345
5) Mouse Mickey 456
6) Mouse Minnie 567
On Sheet 2Enter the Last Name in cell A1Enter the First Name in cell B1In cell C1 enter the formula: =SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!$A$1:$A$6=A1)*(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$6=B1)*(Sheet1!$C$1:$C$6))With =VLOOKUP() you will need to insert a helper column before column Aso your data looks like this:
1) Last First ID
2) PublicJohn Public John jp01
3) JonesDavid Jones David dj02
4) SmithJoe Smith Joe js03
5) MouseMickey Mouse Mickey mm04
6) MouseMinnie Mouse Minnie mm05

I have a "Master" spreadsheet, and on that spreadsheet there are tab names that correspond with about 4 other worksheets. What I am wanting to do is copy the data from the worksheet, to the "Master" workbook's worksheet with the same worksheet name. I have this code:


Subscript out of range
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="R:\Test\Master.xls")

Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="Z:\Test\Test1.xls")
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="Test2.xls")

But I keep getting a subscript out of range debug error. Can someone shed some light onto what is causing that error and what modifications need to be made so that the error doesn't continue?

When and at which line of code do you get the problem?

Answer:Excel worksheet tab order

Do you only want them to have access to the columns A and B only?? If so, try this.. Select the range of cells that you wan them to have access cells (EX: A2:B20). Right click on one of the selected cells and Select FORMAT CELLS. Then find the "Protection Tab" and UNCHECK the box next to" Locked". Close the FORMAT CELLS box. Then we are going to protect the worksheet and/or workbook depending on whichever you wish. This method will vary depending on which version of Excel you have. If it is the 03 version, go to Tools, Protect. If it is 07+, go to the Review Tab. Once you select Protect Sheet, you should see some options or "permissions" with check boxes next to them. Here we want to DESELECT "Select Locked Cells" so that they will only be able to select the cells that we previously "unlocked".BEST OF LUCK!

I have checked the threads and can't quite find an answer.

I have a spreadsheet with multiple worksheets (16), but one, lets call it worksheet 4, is very slow to be selected. The workbook itself opens quickly, and all the other worksheets select quickly enough.

This particular worksheet, when selected, displays whatever worksheet info I was on before, I get the old egg timer, and often get that the sheet is not responding. As long as I sit there long enough, it eventually displays. The formulas & formatting on this sheet are the same as on 8 or 9 of the others, and I am not having this problem with any other worksheets.

It isn't a small sheet - 2.7MB, and it is formula heavy.

Operating on Windows 7, running Excel 2007

Any ideas? I have checked for objects and hidden code and can't find anyhting.

Answer:Slow Excel Worksheet

What type of formulas do you have on that particular sheet? Are they referring to other cells on the same sheet, to cells on another sheet, to cells in another workbook...?
Even if it wasn't confidential (which I suspect it is) your workbook would be too large to upload, possibly even if you zipped it.
But unless we can compare the bad sheet with one that behaves normally or have a lot more info, I can't think of a lot to suggest.

"If you use the Microsoft IntelliMouse pointing device to zoom more often than you use it to scroll on a sheet, you can set the wheel button to zoom instead of scroll. On the Tools menu, click Options, click the General tab, and then select the Zoom on roll with IntelliMouse check box."

This works with my non-M$ mouses too.

I have a question on adding a hyperlink from my intranet website to an excel worksheet:
The actual complete workbook is located on a LAN folder on our computer system... I want them to be directed to a specific worksheet w/in a workbook in excel. Is there a way to do this? Thanks so much!

Answer:hyperlink to an excel worksheet

I think all you need to do is something like this:

"C:\\My Documents\\MyExcelFile.xls#MySheet!A1"

If your sheet name contains a space, then you need to enclose it in single quote marks, like this:

"C:\\My Documents\\MyExcelFile.xls#'My Sheet'!A1"

I have a file in Excel. I recently added information to the file but when I tried to save it, a message said I cannot save it because it is a read only file. I check the Help information and it showed how to change the properties but when I tried that and went to remove the check mark from the 'read only' box there was no check mark in the 'read only box'. No matter what I tried I could not get the file to save the changes I made. Then it said to save with a different name but when I tried that it said I couldn't because the file was 'read only. I have run into a brick wall. Does anyone have an answer for this?

Answer:Cannot save Excel worksheet

try saving with a different name
and closing the spreadsheet
Now using file explorer , goto the original file and rename that to somethink like OLD
now you should be able to rename the new file, back to its original name

have you emailed or shared the file at all
Anyone else on the PC - different user - open it
Does it contain any Macros at all?

I find this problem , when using dropbox or onedrive to save a copy into
often I have to save a copy , as dropbox/onedrive will be syncing the old file and locked it out

I have been given the job of merging around 2,000 workbooks, each having around 12 worksheets. So I expect to have 24,000 worksheets in total. I am looking for a utility that will merge these onto one continuous worksheet, or if this is too big, I will initially group them into smaller worksheets. My problem is, I need to audit which workbook each row of data is taken from, so the utility must insert a column with the workbook name inserted against each row.

This is a nightmare, but I have to do it. Can anyone suggest any utility, at any price, that might carry out this function ?

Thanks in advance

How can I restrict the use of an Excel worksheet to one computer?

Hi all

I am creating a table at work, which lists the sales managers for different products and then further sub-sorted for different locations.

The old table had every name manually filled into it. Now, I have to update the table as new people have come in and existing ones have left etc. I was wondering whether instead of manually updating each and every name, if I could create a new table in a new worksheet which holds the names and e-mails of the personnel and the main table can refer the names from this table? So after doing this, in the future if any changes are to be made again, I only have to update the table in sheet 2 instead of updating the entire table in sheet 1.

Here is the outline of the tables in Question:

Here is Sheet 1 which contains the name & e-mails of personnel based upon location and designation. I want to lookup the data for name and e-mail from the table in Sheet 2

Here is Sheet 2 which contains the name and e-mails of the personnel.

So can this be done? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Using HLOOKUP & VLOOKUP to pick data from another Worksheet

It's quite simple, indeed.

Formula =SourceSheetname!SourceCell on a cell on your target sheet gets the value from source sheet. For instance in your example case Sheet 1 Cell D2 needs to have a formula =Sheet2!$C$3 (do not forget the exclamation mark after sheet name & dollar signs before row and column!). Now whenever the Manager North is changed (Sheet2 C3), the value is automatically updated in Sheet 1 Cell D2.

This works for strings and formulas / sums as a source. If the source is a formula or a sum instead of a string, you can also right click source cell on sheet 2 and select Copy, then right click target cell on sheet 1 and select Paste Special > Paste Link.

I have a master list of data from which i want to make seperate lists. The first seperate list I want to make is a copy of all rows in the master table which have a certain column value set to yes, an example is below.

Name Age Verified
James 18 Yes
Billly 17 No

For all rows where the "Verified" value is yes, I want a copy to made in Workbook 2 and placed in the next available row. Then, whenever I change the data in Workbook 1 for that row I want the information to be updated in Workbook 2 so long as the verified value remains Yes.

How could I do this?

Answer:Copying data to a second worksheet depending on cell value.

Hi maracles,
Your using the word "Workbook" when trying to explain what you want to do with the data. Are you intending to copy the data to a seperate Workbook, which means that your copying it to a new Excel document, or are you copying it from Sheet1 to Sheet 2 within the same Workbook. If you could post a ziped copy of the file it would be most helpful.

Peace Out,

Multiple users enter Purchase Order info for all suppliers in to one spreadsheet. I want to automate it so that this information is duplicated into separate supplier worksheets enabling me to identify easily total spend YTD for each supplier

Answer:How do I automate copying selected data from one worksheet i

Without knowing the exact layout of your worksheets, it's hard to give a specific answer.2 options come to mind:1 - In each supplier worksheet use either VLOOKUP or INDEX-MATCH to pull supplier specifc data into each sheet.2 - Use a macro to transfer the data once it has been entered. If you choose the macro route, then macros will need to be enabled on each user's system, something that has to be done at the user's workstation by the user or by someone authorized to perform that action. You can not "force" a system to enable macros without user interaction. That would be a serious security risk.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hi Everyone.

I have a Workbook with two work sheets. One sheet is called Course Data and the other is a sheet called Instructor Stats.

The Instructor Stats sheet has a cell B5 to enter an Instructors initials and a command button that when clicked will search the Course Data sheet for that Instructor.

I need help with the vba code that when the command button is clicked it searches the Course Data sheet for the Instructors initials in Column I and copies all occurances of that Instructors entries from B28 to N28 on the Course Data sheet and downwards too the end of the sheet, and copies them to the Instructor Stats sheet and places them in cells B14 to N14 and downwards on this sheet.

I'm trying to use a combobox that would allow the user to select a worksheet in the dropdown list that would refer to one of the sheets. Then, when all the info is entered, the data would be sent to the proper sheet, selected in the combobox. Below is what my code looks like, except I can't figure out the combobox part.


Note that I name the combobox "Sheet"
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets me.sheet.value

'find first empty row in database
iRow = ws.Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchOrder:=xlRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, LookIn:=xlValues).Row + 1

'copy the data to the database
ws.Cells(iRow, 1).Value = Me.vendor.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 2).Value = Me.Description.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 3).Value = Me.CodeP31.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 4).Value = Me.CodeP32.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 5).Value = Me.CodeP33.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 6).Value = Me.P31.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 7).Value = Me.P32.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 8).Value = Me.P33.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 9).Value = Me.amount.Value

'clear the data
Me.vendor.Value = ""
Me.Description.Value = ""
Me.amount.Value = ""

End Sub

Answer:Userform + use combobox to specify in which worksheet the data is entered

Hi. welcome to the forum.

You forgot (in some cases important fact) to say which version of Excel are you using?
Can you post a sample with the macro and userform to test, it's easier then 'inventing a sheet'.

You explanation and partial code sheds no light on what you really need, or maybe I'm reading it incorrectly.
