This code should log the save date and time to cell A1 of the active sheet
in the book.
How and where you use the code depends if you need the refreshing of the

This is a daft one, but I can't find a solution anywhere.
Everytime I open a workbook it opens in the same window as
the last one. There was a time, in the dim and distant
past when each time I opened a workbook, it opened in a
new seperate window. Tiling windows annoys me, I want two
copies of excel running independently. I just can't figure
it out. I know its obvious and stupid, but please help!

&g...One link breaks every time I open a workbook...
I have 3 workbooks tied together with links. One is a source only, the other
two push and pull data.
One of the sources, Payroll Master, on opening updates all links fine to the
source only workbook but not
to the third workbook (which is in the parent directory). Every time I open
it it prompts me to show it where the Payroll Entry is. Doesn't matter if I
hit cancel and
do Edit Links, I can change it there, but will still lose it upon closing
(the link appears in the box and looks ok, just won't update...)
Try going Edit->Links. Break the link and re-establish it? That m...Linking Workbooks #3
I'm not sure if this is an excel function or an access function. (I don't
know Access - however I'm fairly well versed at Excel).
My company has a separate Excel spreadsheet with data for each client. We'd
like to continually update the data in the client specific spreadsheet and
have a separate worksheet that regularly pulls the data from all clients/all
worksheets that we may then reference, sort etc.
How would we go about establishing this? Thanks.

I`m new to this group so greetings for everybody :).
My questions (MS Excel 2007):
There are 10 separate files, each containing a similar worksheet. There

The number of files grows constantly. I would like the charts in the
cumulative file to change, based on the newly created files. How to do
this in a possibly automatic manner?
For example: 5 persons are evaluated each month with a 10-question test
and get a grade (from 1 to 5)for each question. In the cumulative file

I'm using Excel 97 at work and there are two workbooks that someone has
linked. I can't figure out how to unlink them. I go under "EDIT", "LINKS"
and can view the linked workbook but see no way to delete the link. In Excel
2003 that I have at home I can delete the link.
If you search for .xls, you can find the cells with the links.
Then you can copy|paste special|Values.
Sometimes they can hide in hard to find spots.
You could use Bill Manville's FindLink program to help find them:
NoS...Importing an old workbook into a new workbook
I think my Excel Workbook may be corrupted and I was wondering how we
can copy, insert, or import an entire workbook that contains at least a
dozen work sheets in the original file.
Do I have to copy and paste each worksheet one at a time or can I just
import them all?
Open both workbooks.
In the old one, right click a tab and select "Select All Sheets"
Right click a tab again and select "Move or Copy"
In the To book: drop down, select the new worksheet name.
Hit OK and they should all be moved. If you want to just copy them
check the create a copy button.

...How to maximize workbooks (out of IE)
when I open an Excel-File (Hyperlink) from Internet-Explorer the
workbook's embedded in IE . >> No problems
Then I open a worbook local from e.g. Desktop >> the workbook's displayed as

How can this be fixed
As far as I know, excel will remember how you last saved that workbook (well, in
conjunction with what your current view is (if excel is open)).
So save your workbook as a maximized window.
Close excel and then double click on your workbook to test it out.

I have a huge excel worksheet and I want to determine how many pages it will

I also have separated this document into 8 or 9 worksheets.

Group all the sheets you want to check then use print preview,
if you are showing the page number on the printed pages you will see the total on the last page.
Don't forget to ungroup your sheets when finished or risk severe damage to your workbook
as any change made to a grouped sheet is made to all sheets in the grouped sheets.

We received an excel workbook as an attachmnet. I was

opened, a message appears that there automatic links to
info in another workbook. If select Yes, links point to a
file path that is local to the external sender's computer
(we are the receiver), so obviously we don't have these
files. Two questions:
1. How can we get that message from not appearing anymore?
2. What did the sender do with the XL file that it has
links to their My Documnents path?

...Printing options for all sheets in a workbook?
One of the most painful things in Excel (2003) is that you have to set up
the printing options (margins, header, footer, scale etc.) for all sheets in
a workbook individually. Is there a hidden option somewhere that says
"apply print options to all sheets in workbook"?
You can group sheets together by right-clicking on a sheet tab and
selecting Group all sheets. Then whatever you do to one sheet will
apply to all sheets. So, if you set your print options (headers,
footers, margins etc) in this mode then all sheets will take on those
