Linking to Master Spreadsheet

Hi Guys,

I have a spreadsheet with multiple tabs that are identical, whic
contain info that i would like to be automatically updated when th
master spreadsheet is updated. i.e.  If cell C10 in the maste
spreadsheet is changed, I would like all of the other cells in C10 o
the other tabs to change as well.  I realize that it is possible to g
through and link the individual tabs to the master tab, but this seem
very tedious. ie. say in sheet 1 in cell C10 I have ='Master!C10. I
there a way to get this formula in without having to manually g
through to link each tab?

You can group the worksheets, then add the link:

Select the first sheet that you want to link to the master sheet
Hold the Shift key, and click on the tab of the last sheet that you
    want to link to the master sheet
  (The sheets are now grouped -- all the sheet tabs are white, and the
    active sheet has bold letters on its tab. In the title bar, you'll
     see the file name, and the word [Group].)
Select cell C10 on the active sheet
Type an equal sign
Select the Master Sheet, and click on cell C10
Press the Enter key

You should ungroup the sheets as soon as possible, to prevent 
accidentally overwriting any information on the grouped sheets --

To ungroup the sheets, click on the tab of a sheet that's not grouped, 
or right-click on a sheet tab, and choose Ungroup Sheets. wrote:

Linked Tables Over A LAN
Hi, I have a problem with a PC that is sharing an Access database over a LAN. I'm hoping someone may be able to give me a little advice.

Two PCs are running XP Pro and two are running Vista Business 32bit. One Vista machine holds my full database while the other PCs have a similar database but with tables linked to the first machine.

email links in Publisher pdf
Why won't Publisher 2007 convert my email links correctly when saved in pdf format? It puts "mail to:" in twice automatically. It is converting website links without a problem.

There have been some reports of not being able to open existing Publisher files after installing it, and a report that a fix for that bug is due by the end of the might want to wait to install SP2 until after the first of the month, or just install SP1.

Linking to ODBC Linked Tables
Hi: I wonder if you have any suggestions for this. We have moved our Access tables into Oracle and have created a MS Access Database that links to these ODBC tables. Each of our users has a local copy of our Reporting Database that formerly linked to Access tables, but now we want them to link to the Ms Access Database which contains the linked ODBC tables on our shared drive. In trying to link to already linked ODBC tables, Access gives an error and will not link to these tables. Is there a way to let our users link to the Access database that contains the linked ODBC tables? Any...

Linked Graphs from Excel
I have linked graphs from excel into my publisher document using Paste Special. The problem is that when they paste in they reshape (I have pie charts and they come in publisher looking like tall skinny ovals). I can fix the shape of the charts manually after pasting them in, but when I update the links the reshaping reverts to its original, incorrect size. Any suggestions on how I can use the linking to excel and not have to resize every time I update? "Paste Special" as what format? Have you tried an image format? -- Mary Sauer MSFT MVP http...

Sharepoint Linked Table
Hi! I just inherited an Access 2003 database which has a linked table to Sharepoint (dbo_...) without any problem. When you view the actual table from Sharepoint it only has 5 fields, but in Access 2003 have 12 fields. It gets updated without any issue. We are in the process of converting to Access 2007 and the linked table is different from Access 2003. Most of the columns are dropped. Would anyone know how I can keep the same exact column layout (# of columns) as in 2003? This is necessary, because in the code, the linked table updates the local table. Also, we must leave as is, beca...

I made a seperate integration that does an inventory tranaction, and once posted, it adds the quantites to my inventory. My only problem is that when I view an item from the Item Master List, the quantites do not show up. They still say 0. However, when I double click any item to view its detail, the Quantity O...

A Linking Problem
Assume I have a column of numbers, in a file named Source. (range is B2:B10). These cells are linked to a column in a file named Destination(range is E2:E10). If I add a new row 5 to the source, is there a way I can get the previously linked cells in Destination to continue to display the correct values. After adding the new row 5 in source, rows in Destination below row 5 display values from rows below (in the Source file). I hope this is not too confusing a question (I am confused). If it of importance, the linking was done using Paste Link in the Paste Special dialog. Thanks. Hi PA Yo...

Hi all, i have a basic doubt regarding Static Linking and Dynamic Linking. if i have a dll used in a VC application by adding the dll header and making reference to the dll in the libraries, is it can be called as static linking? if i have a vc application which uses a dll by loading it using LoadLibrary API, is this only can be called as Dynamic linking? is Load-Time Dynamic Linking i.e., using API LoadLibrary is only Dynamic linking or even Runtime Dynamic Linking ( adding the header into the project and making a reference to the dll in the libraries property ) is also a kind of Dyn...

to link or not to link
I have a choice of having all my data on a server and an application on a client's machine that has tables that are linked to the database on the server over the LAN. Or just having the whole application on the server and the user running the application over the network. Everything is in Access (2003) and it is also a single user application. Is it obvious which is best. The way I see it there is a penalty for using linked tables, but the other way would mean that the temporary storage used by the workspace would be over the network. Any insight will be much appreciated. "...
