Appending Data Into An Excel Worksheet Automatically
Greetings all,

I am new to the forum and am not at the advanced level with VB yet, but I'm learning as I go. I'm good with VBA and now getting into coding VB proper. This one's going to require VB.

I need to figure out how to get the contents of a worksheet in one Excel file to append to a worksheet into another Excel file automatically. What I'm trying to implement is this:

1. Excel file gets generated by Crystal Reports with Raw Data for one day. (Already done). Let's call the file "Dayfile.xls"

2. VB routine grabs the export file "Dayfile.xls" and appends all rows to existing data for the rest of the month in worksheet "Data" of "MonthlyReport.Xls"

How do I do an append of data from one worksheet to another?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Fastest Way To Load Data From Excel
I am loading data from Excel which consists of a worksheet with 20 collumns and 1281 rows. I load the data by looping and by accessing each cell by "Worksheet.Cell(X,Y).Value" - but this takes 30 seconds or so to load all the data. I've see people to "Worksheet.Range("A1:C3")" and several other ways. I'm just wondering if there is a more efficient and time saving way to load a table of data from Excel. Thanks.

Help: How To Read Excel And Load Data To Listview?
Hello I've been searching the forums about how to read an excel file and load the data into a listview. What I got from the forum is how to load data from a listview into excel.

What I have in mind is to select an excel file using a common dialog control and loads the data into a listview.

The excel file is actually preformatted already. It has fixed fields and only has 1 sheet.

Is it possible to just get the data from the excel file without opening excel?

These are the fields in the excel file:

Automatically Load A Macro When A Workbook Opens
Hi all,

I've been trying to figure a way to run a macro everytime _ANY_ workbook is open. So I've tried these ways and they all fail:
1. Workbook_Open - This can be done only for a single workbook and I need the macro to be run on every workbook which is opened
2. Personal.xls - The macro has to be launched manually from the menus (Auto_Open doesn't work since there is on worksheet open at the time of execution of the procedure)
3. I've tried creating an Add-In but I couldn't see any macros displayed

So any hints are greatly appreciated. I just need to automatically execute a macro everytime a workbook is opened. Thanks a lot!

Automatically Add Sum Of A Column In Excel
Here's the story....

I have a function in an Access Db that automatically exports data to Excel. The procedure exports the data, formats the width of the columns and adds the column headings. One of the columns (column C) lists the size of libraries (in Mb) on an AS400. What I want to do during the export procedure is to have the total sum of this column appended to the bottom of column C. If possible, I would prefer there to be a blank row first between the last value column C and the total sum of the libraries.

Can anybody help??

Excel File Comes Up Automatically With Message Box
I have the following attachment in Excel 2000.
Both graphs were copied and pasted from two separate worksheets that had a single graph based on information in the two left columns.
Thus when the file starts up...I get the message box that says...The workbook you opened contains automatic links to information in another workbook. Do you want to update this workbook with changes in the other?

I don't want this message box coming up at all.
How can I override it?

How could I find out what workbook is the one that contains information in the other?

Also on the graph - there sometimes appears a Chart dialog form with the Chart Type icon with various others. On some other client's computers this toolbar will not show up.

If there was anything at all-that I would like to show itself when it startsup is this toolbar that allows you to change the view of the graph. Where would I have to go and what code would I have to use?

Thanks for any help.

Update Graph In Excel Automatically
I have the values in a worksheet which gets updated everytime i open the workbook. These values need to be plotted in a graph. The problem here is that the graph requires to increment the source data as and when updated. Is this possible.

I am quoting an example below
The first time i open the workbook, the first row is updated in the main sheet with a value(Written a macro to do this). Now i want this value to be updated in the graph. The second time i open the workbook, the second row is updated in the main sheet with a value. Now the graph should list both these values. This way i want to keep updating the graph as and when the values are entered into the rows.

Saving An Excel Doc And Naming It Automatically
Dear VB Gurus! (Good start eh?)

I have an excel doc used as a form to collect lots of data about a person.

Three pieces of critical infor are Forename, Surname & Staff Number.

I have already setup a macro that will ensure these fields have been filled in correctly but I now want to be able to save the document to a particular locatiobn on the users PC (My documents/Comp Assurance Profile). This has presented me with two problems: -

1. How can I get VB to look for a folder in "My Documents", Comp Ass Profile, creating it if it's not there.

2. How can I get VB to create a file name from "SurnameFornameStaffID" without input from the user.

Any help you guys can provide would be gratefully received.

(How many posts rid me of the "Newbie" tag?!)

Need Help With Inserting Pictures Into Excel Automatically
I have this macro, but when I run it, it always says "Unable to get the Insert property of the Pictures class". I have an Excel spreadsheet with a column that has a list of picture filenames (without their paths and file extensions.) What I want is a little VB macro to pick up the filenames in each cell in the column, add it to a hard-coded path and file extension, and then load the picture into another specific cell on the spreadsheet. Also, I would like to hard-code the size of each picture so that they are all the same size. Ideally, the order of the pictures should be the same as the order of the filenames in the column. Obviously, I will need to specify the range of cells from which to access the picture files so it can process one after the other but how I do not know!

This is so that I can press a button and it loads the pictures up automatically. This is what I have:

Sub Macro8()
Dim i As Integer
Dim sFilename As String
Dim bcontinue As Boolean
Dim spath As String
i = 1
bcontinue = True
spath = "P:PicturesJPG"
While bcontinue
sFilename = Worksheets(1).Cells(i, 1).Value
'worksheets is the number of the sheeg, e.g. sheet1 = 1 sheet 2 = 2 etc.
'cells is the cell, the first parameter the row, the second the column
If sFilename = "" Then
bcontinue = False
Cells(i, 2).Select 'select the cell where it should be inserted
ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(spath + sFilename + ".jpg").Select
'inserts picture and select it
Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth 0.47, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight 0.47, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
i = i + 1
End If
End Sub

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me. Thank you very much for your help.

Adding Menus Automatically In Excel Via VBA
I need a VBA program, which can automatically add a custom menu in Excel. I know how to add a menu manually, but if many users are going to use the program it would be nice to have some kind of installation program. I the older versions of Excel (v7) VBA the menu was 'attached' to the XLS file with the VBA code, so when you executed the file automatically via XLstart the menu was there, but that is not the case anymore...

How Do I Code VBA To Automatically Produce Graphs In Excel

Making VB Replace An Excel Spreadsheet Automatically
I have a large export that will take 2 or 3 Subs in the command. Both subs sends data into an Excel Template. So, the first sub recalls the template and posts data. The only way I could figure out how to make the second sub post to the same template was to make Excel save the spreadsheet before starting the second sub. But, since the file already exists, it asks the user if they want to replace the spreadsheet. So, as of now, the user has to click the save button 2-3 times to get to the spreadsheet

Does anybody know how to make Excel replace the file without the user seeing it? I would like to have as little user interaction as possible and clicking save to a program they don't see doesn't seem like the way to go

Or, does anybody know how to make VB rememer a spreadsheet from one sub to the next sub?
