Reflecting info between an excel file and a word one or two excel file.

I have an Excel file that I use as a database with the dates of the
time when my company does the maintenance of our electronics tools (we
work in an industry that uses them a lot, we have around 200 in an
Excel file).

So the documents look as follows (the images are copied and edited in
paint, that's why they look kinda weird). They are next to each
other; I divided it here in order to fit it to word's format (it's
in Spanish, there's no need for you to understand what it says

Go to file.jpg please and see it.

We do the maintenance of our equipment (each one with a code like
PT-01) and we change the date of the next maintenance. "Ultima"
means the last maintenance and "Proxima", the next one.
After we change these dates, we need to go to another file that is on
Word (that I could migrate to Excel if there's need to do it) and we
need to enter some info there. We do this manually now.
Let me show it for you. The document is larger than this, I'm just
posting the last section only, with the info we need to change:

Go to file.jpg and see it please.

So we enter the info on the next blank line about the maintenance that
was just done.

On the "Fecha" (date) we write the date of the current maintenance,
the one we just did.
On "descripci=F3n" if it was a "Verificaci=F3n" or a
"Calibraci=F3n" (two different kinds of maintenance, not all the
items need them both).
On result, if it was OK or not, I want to leave it blank on the
automated system anyway because we always need to write it in hand.
On "pr=F3xima - calib or verif" is the date of the next
"Verificaci=F3n" or  "Calibraci=F3n".
That I need to be written automatically. If there's only one type of
test being done, I need the other one to get a "-" sign.
In "realiz=F3" goes who did the work; we are going to write that by

So what I require is some automated way of inserting in the second file
(currently in Word, if it needs to be changed to Excel, that can be
done) the info that was written to the first one.
Let's say I do a "calibraci=F3n" (one of the two possible types of
maintenance) and change the dates on the first file, I need it to be
reflected automatically on the second file, by inserting the info on
the next empty line.
The info I need to be inserted automatically is the one corresponding
to the "Fecha" (current date), description (saying if it was either
a verificacion or a calibracion) and the date of the next maintenance.
I used a color system to show you the info that needs to be connected
between both files. The system should identify if it was a verificacion
or calibracion automatically.

Thanks a lot for reading all this, I know this a big favour I'm
asking for and I'm greatly thankful.

How not to preview information in formula bar when in a cell w/lots of info?
I've looked and looked in the archives of teh excel ngs via google. I can't seem to find this info so I know I'm not asking for the right info. Help file also unhelpful, probably for the same reason. When we have more than on "line" of text in a cell, and when the cell is the active one, the formula bar shows all this info in that sort of preview but that obstructs the information in the cells directly below the formula bar. I can't remember how to turn that feature off. Anyone know? Only way I can think is Tools->Options, View tab, uncheck Formula Bar and ...

QB Integration, customer info.
I am attempting to integrate my RMS software with Quickbooks 05 Pro. Up until now, I have transfered all sales information manually using register reports. I have two problems. 1. If I import customers from Quickbooks, it duplicates all of my customers in the RMS database (this is because RMS creates the customers account# from their company name in QB) so I suggest that RMS synchronize customer data based on their Account # from QB. 2. If I add a new customer at the POS (something we do very often) I must manually go back to Quickbooks and enter the information again. This is beca...

Negative value in Excel
I would like value in a certain rage of cells to always be negativ without adding minus sign when enter the value. Does anyone know how t set this??? Many thanks -- Message posted from Adhanya, One solution is to put the values in straightaway (as positive), and simply make them look as though they're negative. Select the cells, Format, Cells, Number, Custom, and use something like: -General -0.00 Then in any formulas that refer to them, negate them so they will be treated as negative. Or an event macro can negate them as they're entered. -- Earl Kios...

How can I move Outlook 2002. inbox files to Outlook 2007
I just bought a new computer with Windows 7 and outlook 2007. I wishto transfer my files from outlook 2002. can anyone tell me how? The first thing you want to do is let Outlook 2007 create its own PST file because of the new format it's in. Then add the old Outlook 2002 PST file to the Windows 7 PC and add the PST to your Outlook profile. Then simply drag and drop the emails from your old PST into the new one. You don't want to use the old PST because it has a 2 GB size limit on it for one thing. Outlook 2007 doesn't have such a small limit set on it. -- Kathle...
