Excel 2000 problem when opening Excel 97 spreadsheet with links and macros

Q: Excel 2000 problem when opening Excel 97 spreadsheet with links and macros

I am trying to open a spreadsheet that was created in Excel 97 using Excel 2000. The links and macros that are on the sheet seem to prevent it from opening. There are a load of error messages but I just cannot get the thing open. I have searched so many places, found the same problem but no answer.

Can anyone help?

I have just been upgraded to Excel 2007. I find that some of the macros that were recorded in Excel 2003 no longer work in Excel 2007. We use the Analysis Toolpak VBA add-in and I have added this in to 2007 ok, but when running a macro I get a run time 1004 error ATPVBAEN.XLA cannot be found. After some searching it would appear that some of these functions have been renamed in 2007 e.g. it is now a .XLAM file rather than .XLA which is why the macro code can't find it. I guess I could manually edit all the macros and change the fucntion names but there are other colleagues in my team that are still using 2003, so I don't want to break things for them. Is there any solution to this? Thanks

Hi all,
This is probably one of the most stupid question if you are a real techie. I am not, so here goes. I would like to create a form (I am assuming it will be in PDF but if there is a better format please also let me know), that I will save on my desktop, where every time I click submit, the information is immediately sent to an existing Excel Spreadsheet on my desktop. The form will look something like this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?fromEmail=true&formkey=dDd3Q3lrdnY5Zmd6SUFBNk9pMGs1eGc6MA
In other words, I do not want to manually open up my spreadsheet each time. Rather, I would like it to fill up automatically whenever I click submit on this form. Basically, I am trying to enter receipts as they come in but don't want to open up the continually bulging spreadsheet each time. I don't have a website so I cannot use the online submission option. Is it possible to achieve this locally on my desktop?
My OP is Windows 8.1 (and I HATE IT!!!). That last note was not important but I can't help mentioning it every time I say Windows 8...heh heh heheee....
Thanks in advance for any help.
 

A:Creating a PDF form that links directly to an Excel spreadsheet everytime its filled

Using Adobe won't be easy and you have two much easier options IMO. The first option is to create a Word document and embed form fields and other controls on the document itself along with a submit button. The button click event would trigger the macro code to get fired which would transfer the values.The other option is to create a custom form using the VBA form builder which is built into all MS Office applications. Both methods would require some basic macro coding but is not difficult at all. You just need to decide which method you want to use.

Hi can anybody tell me hoe to copy macros from excel 2003 to excel 2007?
The excel 2003 is running under windows xp and the 2007 under windows vista.
(The two versions of excel are installed at differnt computers)

A:Copy Macros From Excel 2003 To Excel 2007

I don't know Excel 2007 nor Vista.
But the usual way to copy macros brute force would be to open the VBA toolbar, get into the Modules, select each, and Export one by one. Then import into 2007 modules if Excel 2007 VBA permits that.
If export/import doesn't work, you can always copy out the entire text into Notepad text files, and copy/paste from the Notepad into your 2007 Excel.
If the VBA language or object model has changed between 2000 or 2003 and 2007, then some tweaking might be in order, but I suspect they left it alone, and the error messages, if any, might suggest what to fix.

Since these are different computers, either network them and share some common directory, or use USB flash drive for transfers of the, say, Notepad files.

Export is good, because it names the modules. They get saved someplace in your local settings. Notepad will not name, and doesn't matter really.

I do individual price sheets for my customers that are linked from 1 to 3 source sheets. These source sheets are my vendors price lists in xls format. Of course these change quite frequently. If I add or delete lines from the vendor files, the customer pricers linked to those files will go out of whack. In other words a cell reference on a source sheet of say D 13 will shift to D 14 if I add a new row. The customer price sheet now references the wrong price. I'm sure this did not happen with Excel 97, or I had 97 set to be able to shift as needed without having to manually make changes. Problem is I can't remember/figure out how to do this. Can anyone help me set this up so that when I have to update my source files (vendor price lists) i.e. - add a new row for a new part (or delete) the linked cells in the customer pricers will move also.

I am creating a ss where I have hyperlinks. (A whole column is links).

I want the links to open in Avant Browser, instead of IE6. I've set Avant as the default. I've gone into my computer>tools>file types and looked, and all http, html, ect types are set to open with Avant.

What am I missing?! It's driving me bonkers. The only reason behind it is that IE6 is not compatible with the site that the links are associated with, otherwise, I wouldn't care.

Thanks,
Erin
 

A:Simple ? regarding excel & opening links

After looking thru Excel to an extent ive come up with 2 things.

1. Due to the fact that IE6 is Microsoft and Excel is Microsoft, something tells me that would be one heck of a workaround to have the links open in another browser.

2. Excel does however have VB Scripting, so possibly someone (wish I could write it) could write you a Macro so that when you click a link it opens it with your Avant browser instead.

Sorry I can't help anymore more than this, perhaps someone else sees something i did not.

Greetings forum,

I have an Access database main table that I try to update at least monthly with an Excel spreadsheet feed. The spreadsheet formatting is always the same, with occasional additions or deletions of rows...those changes are what I am trying to update the database with. The rows represent personnel and their personal information. People come and go...blah, blah, blah.

The problem is when I run the new reports and save them in Excel. I save them in the same place and rewrite over the old file with the same file name. Then I try to import external data into the Access database using this overwritten file as an append query. It worked the first time I set it up, but when I try to use it again as a saved import, I get an invalid file name for the overwritten file. Microsoft appears to be adding a hidden appendage to the file name when I overwrite the original file.

Has anyone had experience with this problem before?
 

A:Solved: Importing Excel spreadsheet into Access problem

I haven't heard of this problem.
Perhaps you could tackle it differently. I normally just import the file to a temporary table (which requires no save import) and then use an Append query to add the records to the table and then a delete query to clear the temporary table.

I was sent an Excel spreadsheet attached to an email. I need to get it filled out, and sent back. I'm able to view the spreadsheet, but when I click on a cell, I'm not able to type anything in the space.
I've never used Excel before, and am clueless, as you can surely tell.
So, can someone fill me in on how to fill this in?

Thanks!!

Hi there,

It sounds like your worksheet may be protected. With this sheet activated click on Tools | Protection; What does it say, Protect Worksheet or Unprotect Worksheet?

Also, if possible, how about zipping and attaching an example workbook?

I have a very large mailing list on Excel 2002 to which I make corrections as address changes come in. This list is used for several different mailings and I'm having a problem keeping track to be sure the most current corrections have been posted. Is there any formula or macro to be placed in a column to automatically insert the current date (and KEEP it that date) whenever a correction is made to an address? I have tried to manually enter the date when a correction is posted but the date keeps changing to whatever the current date is. It has been quite some time since I tired writing a macro and don't really remember how. (Actually, I think the macros I wrote were in Lotus 123 rather than Excel.) Any ideas greatly appreciated.

One other question. I've been entering zip +4 but when I use this list to print labels with Word 2002 Mail Merge Wizard, it will only print "0" for any zip codes with the additional four numbers. Is there any way around this?

There are 2 things you can try (& a formula ain't one of them )

1. Use the shortcut to enter current date ( CTRL+; )

2. Use some event code in the worksheet module (rightclick the sheet tab & "View Code" to access the module):

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Selection.Cells.Count <> 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column = 1 Then
Target.Offset(0, 1) = Date
End If
End Sub

This will enter current date in column 2 (B) when you make a change in column 1 (A).

For the zip codes merge field formatting, try here.

HTH,
Andy

I have made a number of maths worksheets/games in excel. I have never learned programming, but I have picked up bits of visual basic from friends and from the "record macro" function.
I'm attaching an example of the type of structure I'm using. I really like the way I can make buttons to click for the kids to enter their answers, so that everything is done with a mouse. I often put timers on so that they're working against the clock.

I would like to write something similar for multiplication table practice. I would need a number pad of answers from 1 to 100. There must be an easier way to do this than to write 100 short macros equivalent to the 4 answer macros in my example.

Can anyone help?
thanks

Hi,
I have to import values into a website. This information is for electrical transmission flow. Based on the number of paths I have and the duration I select. I would like the spread sheet to create the lines for me and have them populate the correct field. I am attaching an example. The Por and Pod are the To and From. Currently in my spreadsheet I have 7 paths setup. If that changes though I would like it to automatically add the additional path in the correct place. I also show 3 hours for the duration, but this could be days or months and it might be broken up in hours days months. Example for Months it would be 7/18/2009 0:00 to 8/18/2009 0:00. I generally post 1 year of monthly values so on the Input page I was thinking about asking the user for the duration (Start to Stop times), Increment (hours, days, Months), and path names (To and From) and have excel create the attached worksheet with those colums filled in. I am not sure I have explaned the situation very clearly so if you have any questions please ask.
Thanks,
Joe

Attached is a file where I need to allocate the dollar amount. I need to allocate the dollar amount, proportionately, from cells C84 & D84 (Management Volume Challenge) across the values in each of the columns C3, D3 through C72, D72(SINGLES and KIND SIZE). Cell F84 is the area where the dollar value for a reduction or increase. The row items in BOLD are summary lines and do not require an allocation of dollars.

Thanks for your cooperation in advance.

Nothing is bold. It's a TXT file.
Try uploading the file again.
This time, do not SAVE it as a text file.
Instead, copy your file, change the file extension from xls to txt using Windows Explorer and not Excel.
Then load it.

I would like to do something very simple, but that will affect over a hundred tables.

I would like to automatically, via a macro, place the table heading into the header. The table heading is in cell b5 on all tables. Therefore I need to write a macro that will go through each worksheet (they are in 4 workbooks, but I can do the same macro in each workbook) and perform this action.

I have read masses of help and tried lots of different ways and it WILL not work.

I have used for and next, and other loop arrangements. I have used the worksheets function and the activate.worksheet function. But nothing will work.

This is the line that it does not like:

ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftHeader = Range("b5").Value

I have tried different configurations of this line and used different functions within it, but nothing has worked.

Does anybody know what I am doing wrong?

Would appreciate any guidance anyone can give me.
