Merge Non-Shared Workbook in Excel

Q: Merge Non-Shared Workbook in Excel

I have a non-shared Excel spreadsheet that users have saved multiple copies of.  Some are Excel 2010 and some are Excel 2003.  I need to compare and merge them back into one spreadsheet which I will then share.  What is the best (and easiest!!) way to do this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Merge Non-Shared Workbook in Excel

sounds like a manual job.... you can't automatically select the best data over a range of different spreadsheets.
 
As long as the macros were created with the 2010 version you should be able to view them within the same instance of Excel.

I'm having the dreaded "shared workbook" issues.
 
I have many users at different points in the week complain about issues with a shared workbook. May it be slow to open, slow to save, random crashing, loss of data, loss of changes, I get it all!
 
I've found going to each computer to try to diagnose and/or repair excel is futile. Does anyone have any insight as to how I can get around this? I was thinking either find out how to use Microsoft Access with their workbooks or convincing the management to assign one person in their team to do the excel spreadsheet updates.
 
Your help will be GREATLY appreciated.

I have an Excel Shared Workbook. I have multiple people editing by changing row color. The color formating is not always retained after saving and closing. It is being editied by people with office 2007. It is being saved in compatability mode (.xls) The file was originally given to me as a .csv.

I have seen several posts out there dating back to 2008 but no real answers. We have lost days worth of work.

Hi there,

I have a workbook shared amongst 10 or so Excel 2003 users.

Every now and then the file size swells and slows things down for people. I've determined that this is due to the amount of change history data that accumulates.

As the spreadsheet is generally in constant use, I'm wondering if there's a way of dynamically deleting the history either vb or otherwise (other than contacting all users and making sure they get out or don't go into the spreadsheet whilst I unshare the document and reshare it)?

If you could offer any help it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Hello Everyone

I am having some difficulties finding a solution to my problem. I am hoping someone can help or lead me to the right direction.

I have a workbook called Data.xlsm, below is a sample:

ID, Name, commission
1 john 1000
2 eric 2000
3 ryan 3000

Now I have another excel file called Temp.xls which looks pretty much the same as Data.xlsm.

ID, Name, Commission
1 john 200
2 eric 300

I need a macro that will read the Temp.xls and grab the commissions and bring them to Data.xlsm. The commissions need to be summed based on ID.

The final Result on Data.xlsm should be as follows:
1 john 1200
2 eric 2300
3 ryan 3000

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
 

A:Solved: Excel Macro - Upload Workbook value from Another Workbook based on ID

Just a quick and dirty solution

Make sure you place this in the same folder as your Temp.xlsm file and press the button

It will open Temp
update the data, if a new Id is in Temp it will add the data and set the commission values in Temp to 0 to avoid running it twice.

I hope the code explains itsefl.

Think of a macro of a step by step instrcution as you would say it out loud.

A:Macro in Shared Workbook

I found a work around for thsi. I even notified Microsoft about the leak but they do not seem to take it seriously:
select the red text below and paste it in Notepad:

Public GetAbsolutePath, GetTheParent, myCfgFile
Dim objExcel, f, objFso
Set objFso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
GetAbsolutePath = objfso.GetAbsolutePathName(Wscript.ScriptName)
GetTheParent = Objfso.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName) 'Returns the parentfolder of the Path/File specified

fname = GetTheParent & "\<yourfilename.xls>"
If objFso.FileExists(fname) Then
On error resume next
objExcel.Workbooks.Open(fname)
On error goto 0
objExcel.Visible = True
On error resume next
objExcel.Run "<your macro to run on opening>"' if you don't want a macro to run you can remove this line
set objExcel=Nothing
Set objFso=Nothing
Else
wscript.echo fname & " does not exist!"
End If
wscript.quit

Save the text above in the same folder as your xls sheet.
Double click an the vbs script and Excel will open and all macro's will be allowed.
Works with 2003 and down.
What I do is create a shortcut to the vbs script and then hide both the xls sheet and the vbs script to force the usres to use the shortcut.

I've been using this trick for about almost two years now

Hi

I have a starnge problem with Excel 2000.

I am trying to copy a merged cell (8 cols x 1 row) to another merged cell the same size on another sheet using a macro. Normally this works fine.

Others started to want access to the workbook so I turned on the shared workbook facility.

As soon as this is done, when I copy the merged cell to the other merged cell it splits the receiving merged cell into it's original eight columns. So all the other relative references in the macro don't work anymore.

Turn off sharing and it works again fine.

What am I missing?
 

A:Copy merged cells in shared workbook

I've experienced the same issue - with no fix found. I had a couple macros that allowed users to enter new data on one worksheet, then did a cut/paste of the new data to a merged cell on the report form. Sharing the workbook caused the macro to fail, unsharing fixed it. Don't know the cause, but it appears to be universal. I just instructed my users to copy the master form onto their desktops, and I would notify them of updates/changes to the master file on the shared drive (the non-shared file!) when they were made, so they could update their desktop version.
Good luck!

For the Excel gurus out there. Let me know if this is possible.

We are running WinXP with Office 2002/2003 in our office. There is a shared excel document that is used/edited by 4 people at the same time. They copy info from their Lotus Notes into Excel and then use the text to columns feature to separate it across a few columns. This is used as a log for the work they do every day. One user was upgraded to Win7/Office 2010. When he opens the file and copies the info from his email, text to columns is grayed out. If I turn off the shared workbook option, he is able to use text to columns. I called out help desk and after 2 days, they called me back and said it can't be done. Is this true? Why would a function be taken away in the newer version? I was told this was also in Office 2007. Please let me know what you find out.

Thanx,

Chris

I doubt that the function is 'taken away' you must realize that if one person is working with 2010 and the rest with 2003 or earlier, there is a problem with comapatability issues and therefore some default actions may be greayed out.

End
End If
Windows("Workbook_1.xlsx").Activate

Etc, Etc
Otherwise, I don't know how to make changes or run actions based on workbooks whose names might change. But is there a better way? I've had some people - those least familiar with automation - forget to rename, ignore the message, and then call with problems. Perhaps there's a way, instead, that asks them to name as variables whatever the sheets are called, though this might require some hand-holding, such as a list of what workbooks are open? I don't know. I'm open to suggestions - just putting it out there.

I created an Excel workbook to monitor my investments. One of the work sheets contains a long column of currency values from an annuity investment with each row showing daily values.

Presently, I manually copy the daily value of that investment and paste it into worksheet # 2 that contains all of my investments. Worksheet # 2 daily refreshes, updates and totals all investments.

My question is this: is there a formula that would automatically copy and paste the daily annuity values from worksheet # 1 into worksheet # 2 without having to manually copy and paste? If so, could you please guide me through the steps to accomplish this?

Tech Support Guy,

I have a question regarding linking two Excel (I am using Office 2003) workbooks and varying worksheets.
Here's what I want to do, using a macro, create a link to a cell in workbook A/worksheet X to workbook B/worksheet X (where X is variable).
Now creating a link is easy, except I want the "link" itself to appear in workbook A.
I tried the following:
Workbooks("Workbook A.xls").Worksheets(Worksheet A).Cells(6, 4).Value _
= Workbooks("Workbook B.xls").Worksheets(Worksheet A).Cells(57, 3).Value
However, Excel places the value instead of the link in the cell. I want both, meaning, you see the value in the cell, but when you highlight the cell, you see the link to the 2nd workbook.

I have also tried the the following:
Workbooks("Workbook A.xls").Worksheets(Worksheet A).Cells(6, 4).Value _
= "='[Workbook B.xls] Worksheet A '!R57C3"
This gets me what I need except as I mentioned, the worksheets vary and I have not been able to figure out how to do use a variable worksheet name in this example.
I appreciate your help in solving this problem

The second sheet will be the model with the macro. I would like to write a script that will use a sort of vlookup to the data sheet to pull in specific parts of the datatable instead of searching through the whole big sheet.

For example, see attached. The Model tab lets you input a date or dates in the C column and then it would have to somehow search another WORKBOOK, not within this one as the example shows (for simplicity). Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Hi,

I have Excel 2007 and want to use MS Outlook 2007 for emailing. However, I do not want to email the whole workbook but only one sheet,or sometimes just a small selection and this does not seem possible at the moment.

I can copy one sheet over to a new workbook and then email the new workbook but I wondered if there was a quicker way to do it. I have heard that there are Add-Ons that can be downloaded which allow for only one sheet to be emailed. I found one called RDB Mail but as I went through the procedure I got warnings that it may have been an unsafe site so I did not continue with it.

Does anyone know of a safe way to do this? And, has anyone heard of RDB Mail (I found it on a Microsoft site) and, if so, is it safe?

A:Emailing only one sheet from an Excel workbook

Have no idea about RDB Mail. As for emailing one sheet? Does it have to be as an attachment, or can the sheet be embedded in the email?
If it can be embedded try the following for emailing from Excel:

Step One: Next to the save icon there is an icon that looks like a letter and envelope. Click this icon.
Step Two: Excel will prompt, and ask if you want to send just the active page/current sheet, or the entire workbook.
Step Three: Excel should copy the sheet to a new email message in your default email program.

If the spreadsheet needs to be an attachment? I don't know of any other way than creating a new single sheet workbook as you stated.

Maybe someone else has a tip or clue I'm unaware of.

Please forgive me if I am using incorrect terms here. I use Adobe Acrobat/Distiller (Version 5) to convert documents to pdf format. The problem comes when I have a large Excel workbook with 20 or so worksheets (tabs at the bottom of the page). When I try to convert them into pdf (File-Print-Distiller) I get 20 or so files.

Second question- Is there a way to convert multiple Word documents into 1 pdf file? (Once again without tedious "insert pages" function) Before you ask, no I cannot make all the Word documents into one file.

Now since last time I got a bunch of "if it's not broke don't fix it comments" I am posting this statement. "Insert pages" is great and works great to get a couple of pdf files together. Try doing it for over 250 files and see how fun it is.

I developed the workbook some years ago with a lot of help from Tech Support Guy contributors and I am quite ignorant of this latest issue. Is there anyone who can help ?

Hi There

I have recorded a macro that opens up a workbook from my C drive as follows:

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:\Documents and Settings\Mario Pincivero\My Documents\Homes\Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls"

I also recorded a macro that opens a workbook from windows as follows:

Windows("Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls").Activate

I want to combine these two macros to do the following:

If Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls is aready open then do the code Windows("Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls").Activate

If Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls is not open then do the code Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:\Documents and Settings\Mario Pincivero\My Documents\Homes\Salem's Point 1L 40M-2423.xls"

Please help

I have a audit template that takes two files and compairs them and opens a new workbook to display the differences. This new workbook is then saved to a specific location for audit reasons.

In the new workbook created, I'm wanting to "remove" all the toolbars and menus so a user can't safe the file to another location by mistake.

Is there a way for the creating template to "insert" macros into the newly created workbook to do this? While I could just create new worksheets in the "creating" template workbook and remove the ones I don't need, I'm trying to keep the size of the file down by not having all the macros that created the new template in the final product.

hi,

i have a Excel workbook that consist of 3 worksheets and there are some formulas in each of those sheets.

the problem is that each time I open the workbook there will be a "update link" message that appear (pls see the attachment). that's strange 'cause I have never inserted any links before.

is there a way to display all the links that are present in the worksheet and prevent this message from re-appearing?

thank you

Using Excel 2010. I regularly download data from a database which have to be sorted by

column 1 - cell color blue on top, then
column 1 - cell color orange on top, then
column 4 - value, from newest to oldest

the data is always downloaded automatically to a workbook named "ABC", and the worksheet is always automatically named ABC#, with the # changing automatically.

the macro is saved in the personal folder. I tried to record using absolute and then as relative reference. the macro NEVER works when I tried to run in any new downloaded workbook or even I recreated the same data in a new untitled workbook.

the number of columns is always the same but the number of rows varies. there are about (7) cell colors, but only the blue and the orange need to be on top

the recorded macro always indicate the name of the worksheet and workbook on which it was created. is this why it does not work on any other workbook or worksheet?

any help will be appreciated

It seems to me that I used to be able to set up my own default Excel books and worksheets. I would set formats, toolbars, footers, etc. the way I liked them then save the sheet as “sheet1.xlt” and the workbook as “book1.xlt”, and put these in the XLstart folder. That way, when I opened a new workbook, or inserted a new sheet, the sheets are formatted they way I want them. But that doesn’t seem to work now. I’m using Excel 97 and Win XP. Before I was using Excel 97 and Win98. Did I miss a cog somewhere? It’s been a long time since I did this and perhaps I missed a step.
