how to link to external worksheet
I am using excel 2003 and am trying to link a worksheet from one spreadsheet
(source) into a second spreadsheet (destination). The source spreadsheet may
or may not be open when accessing the link from the destination spreadsheet.
I figured out to go to the source, select the whole sheet, ^c, then switch to
a blank worksheet in the destination and Edit->Paste->Paste Special. From
there I "Paste link", then paste "format" and "column widths".
My first problem is that any blank cells on the source worksheet come over
as 0's on the destination, ev...Create Link to Dial-Up Network Item
I am using ishelllink to create links which is working, except I am
struggling to get it to work with Dial-Up Networking entries.
I can parse the namespace correctly and get the correct PIDL(matched
with manual shortcut) for the item no problems, however passing the PIDL
to SetIDList only creates a dead link. I have tried appending the PIDL's
to make a PIDL relative to the Desktop to no avail.
Any Ideas? I have never used COM objects before so I am lost for any.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good Morning All,
I posted yesterday in regards to a workbook that does not display the
updated values from linked workbooks. Dave Peterson replied that I use the
=SUMPRODUCT formula instead of the =COUNTIF formula, which did the trick.
However I have run into a problem when I want to find a zero in one of the
linked workbooks. In one of the linked workbooks I have the years 2000 to
2010 located in $A$1:$A:11, in which I have data in from $B$1:$B:$6 (which
are the years 2000 to 2005). The remaining cells ($B$7:$B:$11 are blank).
I want to find the number of occurences of 0's in $...How to re-fresh the import links if it fails?

...Linking textboxes with option boxes
I have a userform with a column of text boxes (TextBox1, 2, 3...10) and
adjacent Check boxes (CheckBox1, 2, 3...10).
The textboxes are populated from a sheet with various items.
What I need is for the adjacent Check boxes to be checked if the textboxes
contain either the text AAAAA or BBBBB and unchecked for anything else.
Can anyone help?
And contains means that the textboxes can contain: xxxxxAAAAAyyyyy
and still be checked, right?

Option Expl...Formatting of Excel OLEs in Word is messed up after updating links
I have a Word document with multiple Excel objects pasted and linked to their
source files. Every time I try to update any of them, they revert to their
original size they had when I first pasted them in, instead of the formatting
I applied afterward.
I've tried to fix this by editing the links, but the "Preserve formatting
after update" box is greyed out on all of them.
Is there another way to force these objects NOT to revert to original size
every time I update? The way it is now sort of defeats the whole purpose of
linking them in the first place.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to import a list of links in to Excel?

Currently when the button is clicked it opens the form and it is displaying
the first record and you have to click the add new or scroll all the way
through the records in order to add a new one.

How do I remove a link to another worksheet? I have a
workbook which has several sheets containing links to each
other within the workbook only. The mistake I made is that
I copied one of the sheets to a new file in order to email
just that sheet to somebody. My problem now is that my
original workbook will not function properly as it thinks
it is linked to the new file that I no longer need and
have since deleted. There does not seem to be a
straightforward way to delete a link to another workbook.
How do I get back to where I was originally?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

then there are no links back to the original file (the chart source data

The left axis has a bar chart with a calendar year label for each bar. The

This works fine as long as I have both workbooks open at the same time.
However, if only the 2nd workbook is open the Calendar Month labels under the
