I am trying to create a macro that will look at the contents of a cell and insert it into an address on the server. For example, the contents of the cell is: folder\file

The location to hyperlink to is: \\server\share\folder\file.doc

I need to keep the file extension in the macro so that clicking the link will automatically open the file. I just need to get the contents of the cell to fill in the folder name and file name.

Thanks in advance.

Hello all. Not a regular user of Excel; but do need help in creating something that would be useful to me and a few others at work. I suppose the best way of explaining what I'm after is by giving an example.

I have a directory C:\Users\Tekko\Desktop\Maintenance Project\Cape Nelson
In Cape Nelson are a number of folders named alpha beta charlie delta echo and foxtrot and so on.

I would like to have an excel template in "Cape Nelson" with a macro that when activated names the file as whatever folder name might be in say cell A1 and whatever ever date might be in cell B1. Eg charlie_15-mar-2013.xls
This then is saved in the relevant folder. So in the end I would end up with
C:\Users\Tekko\Desktop\Maintenance Project\Cape Nelson\charlie\charlie_15-mar-2013.xls

Also the macro script would ensure that the macro was disabled in the saved file.

Hoping this is achievable and look forward to replies.

Hi guys,

First time on here! From Dublin, Ireland!

I am trying to work on a spreadsheet whereby I want a specific hyperlink in an excel cell to open a pdf to a specific page.

Now I have managed to work with some code where I am able to do as such, however I am getting stuck at a very simple part.

The code works and opens the required page in the pdf in internet explorer, however I need different pdfs to open through the hyperlinks in different cells. Unfortunately, when I click a hyperlink, it is opening all the pdfs I've specified. Is there a way to assign the code to one singular cell so that only the required pdf opens through that cell, and similarly different pdfs in different cells?

I have to add hyperlinks to about 100 cells and while a few of them will open the same document, the pages will be different.

Basically, when I click a link, I just want the req'd page in the pdf to open, but it is opening all the pages specified, even ones for different cells.

The following is my code:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim IE As Object
Dim s As String, sFile As String
Dim iPageNum As Long
If Range("J17").Value <> "" Then
sFile = "C:\Passdowns\Linked Procedures\Startup Guide.pdf" '<- Modify to suit

You need to loop through the range with a variable and use the value of that to access the cell.

For several years I've had a shortcut to a specific Excel file pinned to the Windows 7 Taskbar. When I clicked it, it caused Excel to open the file as desired. Somehow the shortcut disappeared from the Taskbar, and I'm now trying to recreate it. I can create a shortcut on the Desktop with the icon that I want that does what I want (i.e., double-clicking causes Excel to open the file).

However when I drag that shortcut to the Taskbar the icon changes to an Excel icon, and clicking the icon causes Excel to open a blank workbook. Right-clicking the Excel icon does open a menu with the subject file listed, but that's not what I want.

As I say, I had it working as desired for several years, so I know what I want can be done, but I can't figure out how I originally did it. Can anyone help?

Hi there,

I am trying to use SQL.REQUEST to pull data from one excel file (a master data file) to another one, and I can't get it to work. I think I don't have the correct connection string specified.

I'm using Excel 2002 on Windows 2000.

The task is, I need to build dynamic queries based on other cells in the "output" spreadsheet, such as, get a count of all records in the master file where the date field is equal to [cell reference] and the ID field is equal to [another cell reference] and a third field is equal to [third cell reference]...
So that, if the values in those referenced cells change, the records that match (and get counted up) will be different.
Also, there will be at least 10 different queries (I do a sum on a field that is a time duration, an average on that same field in another, etc) in different places on the spreadsheet.

I was able to get a simple query to work in Microsoft Query if I used static values, ie, I typed them directly into the criteria... however, these need to by dynamic so that when the same spreadsheet (a report template) is "saved-as" and new values for the criteria are input, the queries don't have to be re-created.

So, using MS Query, I can connect to the master data file and get the correct result... but I believe what I really need to use is SQL.REQUEST, so I downloaded the ODBC add-in and installed that.
I just can't seem to figure out what my connection string argument needs to be.

A:Please Help - Data in Text File to be arranged in Excel in a specific

First, two questions: how proficient are you with Word and Excel? Are you comfortable using the REPLACE function in both?

If reasonably proficient and comfortable (understand) with the REPLACE function, it isn't difficult and will take about 15 minutes to accomplish what you seek.

Open the text file in Word.

Turn on the SHOW ALL switch (the paragraph mark icon).

Your post example has MANUAL LINE BREAKS after each line - if the source file has them, replace all of them with PARAGRAPH MARK.

Add a PARAGRAPH MARK (Enter) at the very beginning of the document.

Replace DOUBLE PARAGRAPH MARKS with PARAGRAPH MARK, hash mark (#) - makes it easier to see what you are doing next - and PARAGRAPH MARK like this:

Find what: ^p^p
Replace with: ^p#^p

Now add the tilde (~) in front of each line:

Find what: ^pBSSID:
Replace with: ^p~BSSID:

Repeat for each line of a record (total of 11 times).

Delete all of the hash marks (#):

Find what: ^p#^p
Replace with: ^p

Now your records are:
> Separated by a carriage return (paragraph mark)
> Fields are separated by the tilde (~)
> The first imported column will be EMPTY

Save the txt file and close Word.

Starting from row 4:
I need the code to copy down the first name,
then starting from column g to cd in that row, it should copy down the mark for a subject (if there is a mark under that subject heading), otherwise skip that that subject.
also copy down that subject's, subject code, which is in the second worksheet.

In summary, If mark under subject for that person, look at subject, compare against code list, copy subject's code, then copy the mark.

Copy down any comment for that person.

I am using windows 7 with office 2010.

I am trying to use the text in an adjacent cell, a movie title, search a folder to find a shortcut to that movie title, and have it appear next to the title. I have been searching using Google, using small precise search terms such as "excel macro file" or "excel macro search for file". I have gotten kind of close to what I'm looking for, but not quite there.

Hopefully the code below will give the reader of this post a better idea of what I'm trying to do. I was initially thinking a search routine, but then realized that the path was always the same (all of these shortcuts are in the same folder), so why not just copy the text from the adjacent cell and "build" my own link. That's what the following routine does and it does work ... provided all the movies are the same format, i.e., .wmv, .avi, .mkv, etc., which they are not. As a result the only two choices I have would be to convert all the movies to the same format, which would take for ever, or use a search routine, which I haven't mastered, and where I need some help.
Here is the build your own link routine:

Hi guys1

And not only for one extension but for more of them, in a single .reg file. As always I don't want to mess it up,so I'm looking for some basic assistance on how to fill a notepad. And I know this is the best place to look at

P.S.

Setting things up de novo is a lot of fun but time consuming... I made a backup of registry and a Restore Point, just in case.

For any idea, thanks in advance!!

Hello all!
So I work tech support at my company and recently had one of our secretaries run into a virus. It was an email containing a fake resume in .doc format that once opened, attempted to direct the computer to download a trojan. AVG detected it right off the bat and quarantined it. I then ran a full system scan with AVG, Malwarebytes, and Spybot and everything came back clean.  I had assumed AVG along with Word being macro-disabled by default kept anything from actually happening.
However, at the time of the download she was running our company bookkeeping software (eClub for those interested) and it crashed once she tried to use it again. I check it out and see that the .exe to run eClub had been removed from the eClub folder (let's call it eclub.exe). Weird! So I go ahead and completely uninstall the program and reinstall, only to find eclub.exe was not reinstalled with it. I copy eclub.exe from another computer and try to paste it into the folder, and I'm told I don't have permission to do so. Then things get weird:
1. I uninstalled eClub completely again, removed the eClub folder and every possible saved setting for it.
2. I created a blank eClub folder (ex. C:\Program Files\eClub)
3. I can put anything I want into this folder, including .exes, EXCEPT for eclub.exe, getting the insufficient permission error.

I have a file on my desktop which keeps making windows explorer crash and restart in a continuous loop. The file is an MKV file from my new HD camera (cheap one off ebay which I am now suspicious is dodgy) which is sitting on my desktop.

Explorer crashes when I log on to MY username almost instantly when it loads up. I'v booted it up in safe mode and explorer is fine but I can't delete the file. Everything (time remaining ect) still says calculating on wont delete it.

I can log on as another user and explorer is fine until I touch that file. I can rename, delete or do hatever to any other file on my desktop (on someone elses account) but as soon as I do something to this file, explorer crashes and restarts so I assume that file is infected. Iv scanned with AVG and malwarebytes and also used F-secure and onecare's online scanner, not finding anything except a few tracking cookies (F-secure was my first scan which removed them).

I'm currently uploading the file to VirusTotal so I'll see what that says.

Does anyone have any experience with this or is this something that needs a complete new approach when it regards Office on the MAC?

I hope somebody can help

I am looking to create some code to move a sheet from one file to a new excel file. SO the code needs to open a new excel workbook and place the required sheet in the resultant new file.

I have managed to do this with an existing file "Moved Pivot" per the code below. This is ok but other people will be using my sheet so the location needs to be chosen by them. A new file seems to be the only solution?

Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\desktop\Optegra Installer\Moved Pivot.xls"

Dim oTargetSheet As Worksheet
Set oTargetSheet = Workbooks("Moved Pivot.xls").Worksheets(1)
Call ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("PIVOT_TB").Copy(oTargetSheet)
Set oTargetSheet = Nothing

Any help much appreciated. Thanks

I have a data base of PFD drawings and I would like them to be accessible in a master schedule in excel.

As of now we type in a part # and a cell finds the part description and inserts it in the adjacent cell.

I worked out a way to make a hyperlink in a separate file that links to a folder holding the drawings (FYI, that's 800 hyperlinks !). My schedule sheet then uses a vlookup to find the hyperlink associated with the part number cell. The friendly name of the hyperlink in the intermediate spreadsheet is the same as the actual hyperlink, so the Schedule sheet shows a hyperlink in the cell and will open the drawing.

I'm not a programer but I can fudge my way threw such things. I woudl like to keep it simple:
Can I create a hyperlink in the Schedule that would reference a cell (part number) and find that PDF file (named the same as the part #) in a file folder and be able to hit that cell and open the drawing when needed.

I don't know VB, but I do use macros on occasion.

I hope this is clean. Any suggestions?


A:Finding a file using a hyperlink

As long as your naming and placement of the files in a directory is consistent you can just append the file name into a hyperlink path. I think there are controls that will open Windows seach as well.

Qualitative Considerations

It is also important to take into consideration the non-financial elements of

replacing the equipment. New equipment and technology may allow CM2 to

operate more efficiently, but a consequence may be layoffs of skilled labor.

Layoffs could lead to decreased employee morale, which may lead to

employees being disgruntled and as a result, less productive. Analyzing

the effects of such a qualitative factor is an important consideration along

with the quantitative effects of replacing the equipment.

Well, where to put this strange problem? XP, Office or Network Forum. All three seem to be involved somehow.

What gives?

I have a few large Excel files on
a) a share on a Win XP SP2 desktop
b) a share on a WIn Vista desktop
c) a share on a Ubuntu 6.06 desktop

When i mean large, i mean ~75Mb

When i work on my laptop (Win Xp SP2, 1Gb Ram, 1,86 GHz), i can access all shares just fine. But when i right click such a large Excel file on the XP or Vista computer and click 'Properties', my laptop becomes unresponsive for about a minute. Then, at last, the properties are shown. In the Taskmanager, on the LAN tab, it shows that my LAN connection is swamped at 70% for a whole minute. Sniffing the network traffic learns that the entire contents of the file is being transferred through the network to my laptop!
Just to see the properties...

However, when i right click the same file on a Ubuntu share, the properties come up instantly.

When i right click other large files on the XP/Vista shares (like *.iso of *.avi files), bingo, properties pop up instantly.

When i right click the large Excel files on the Xp/Vista share from a Win 2003 server (without office installed), voila, properties show up instantly.

So why is the whole Excel file transferred by just right clicking it for properties?
I'm convinced this behaviour adds to slow file share performance in general. For example, if i want to copy such a large excel file form the XP or Vista share, it takes 10... Read more

I'm trying to open in Excel 2010 a file with .exf extension that is always a pipe delimited text file. I have set, using Windows file associations, to open this type of file with Excel. But, I would like for it to recognize that it is pipe delimited, so that I don't have to click on Delimited, Other, "|" to import the file. Any ideas? I also thought about using a macro to save some steps as well. Thanks for your help!

I've got Excel 2000. (Win98)
The PC froze / hung-up while in excel. Could only power off to restart.
Now when you access the file you get a message that the "file is in use" and can only be opened in read only mode.

"When you open a file that is in use, you'll get a message that tells you the file must be opened in read-only mode. In some cases, you may get this message even though the file is definitely not in use. This can be caused by an Excel crash, in which the file was not released."

The file was being accessed on another PC via a basic household network.
Our work around at present was to access the file in Read-only mode and save it as a new file. The old file still exists. I can't delete it as I get the same file in use message.

But, I'm still working on the older file to see if I can unlock it some how.
Tried the following:
1) Check/deleted temp files on the editing PC.
2) Checked the file attributes on the file (Note: the file did not have the "Read-only" attribute ticked)
3) Now checking the source PC for temp files.

Any direction greatly appreciated.
