If you have Power Point slides that report regularly updated financial or numeric data that comes from an Excel spreadsheet, you can save a lot of time by linking the data instead of retyping it.
In Excel, we usually create a drop down list for some daily work.
In default, you can add new data in a cell among the range of original data, then the relative drop down list will be auto updated.
I need to have a database that automatically updates itself. So if I copy a new excel file in folder Y, the first X of this new excel file should automatically (can be with a ‘button demand’) be copied into workbook Y. I think you could do this by not giving the users access to the directory but a program ( which would look like a directory) and when the user clicks to add a excel file the VB program would generate a file for them allow Excel to process it and then hand it back the the program to save. Excel allows you to point to any other open worksheet or workbook for the result of a formula. Excel allows you to point to any other open worksheet or workbook for the result of a formula. You could add this as a Workbook_Open event to make sure it is correct every time the workbook is opened but I will let you worry about those sort of things.
In fact, I have a folder with different excel files, say folder Y (all the same form/template), and the first X cells of these files need to be extracted to another excel workbook (file Z). Option Explicit Const cst Folder = " C:\Users\ATC0155\Documents\Toolbox\Excel\1208 20 selfupdate" Const cst Cols = 5 Sub Do Update() Dim wks As Worksheet Dim str File As String Dim app Excel As Excel.
In this article, you will learn how to disable the automatic update of links in excel.
Q): I do not want updation of links automatically whenever there is any change in the source file.
Close Set app Excel = Nothing End If str File = Dir() Loop ' Tidy up Set wks = Nothing End Sub Wstroo, This routine will open each of the Excel files in the folder and add the range A1: E1 from the first to the workbook where the macro is.
Use The Auto Save button" End If But than instead of the Save ASUI my button?
Could a macro be used to update our workbook links automatically on a periodic basis?
A: I would not recommend a macro approach to solving this problem.
