Auto Starting Excel


Does anyone know if there is a way to have Excel open at a certain time (e.g 
0900) and have it open a Macro to run.

I have files which are auto loaded to a shared area but need to run the 
Macro's on them, I cant leave my PC on 24/7 but would like the Excel document 
to auto-open and run the Macro on a server.

Can any one assist?

Excel does not return to previous cell
Hi all, I am running into an problem with my users. We have a Excel 2000 spreadsheet. I know that typically, the sheet/cell that is selected when a user closes the spreadsheet will be the same when a user opens the spreadsheet the next time. However, the problem I am seeing is that the proves true with some users, but not with all users. Some users open the spreadsheet and instead of going back to, say cell A972, it opens to, say cell B4. I would welcome any input on this issue. Thanks, Jeff Averhoff <<<"I know that typically, the sheet/cell that is selected when a user...

Removal of broken Hyperlinks from data copiedfrom a web page in to an Excel Spreadsheet
I have copied over 600 + lines into excel from a web page data base. I have cells which appear as hyperlinks (blue underlined text). When I put the insertion point over the cell, I get the little "hand" and a hyperlink box opens but is blank. I do not want the text in the cells to be hyperlinks nor do I want to open any hyperlinks. I went to the edit menu to select links to remove all but links is grayed out. I can remove each one, one by one, by using the arrow key to move into the cell, doing a right click and select, remove hyperlink. This works, but will not accept multiple...

Loading data from Excel to Oracle
Hi All, I would like to load an Excel spreadsheet directly into a single table in Oracle. Both the spreadsheet and the table have the same ordering of columns and have compatable data. I am aware that a way to achieve this would be to convert the .xls file into a .csv file and then use sql loader. However, I am interested in doing this in a quicker/easier way directly from Excel, eg. by adding in some functionality and clicking on a new button for loading into the database. We are all able to read from a database in Excel by importing external data. Surely there is a way to change that...

Problem with Importing .csv into Excel
Hi, I have a csv file with a number of words (probably 1000-2000) separated by the "|" character. I wanted to import this file into Excel (Office 2003 Excel), so that I could get each word on a separate line so I could paste them into a blank text document. The problem is, when I go to import the .csv file, Excel imports each word into a column heading, & seeing as how it is limited to 256 columns, my file is not fully imported. I see that Excel has a 65000 row limit, which is more then enough, but I cannot see a way to get Excel to import each word as a separate row, rather tha...

Excel Solver Issue
I am trying to use the excel solver and am running into some issues. The solver is giving me results that I know are wrong and I cannot get it to give me the correct results. I am using it to calculate a linearity which is based off of the STDEV and AVERAGE of a group of numbers. The formula I am using is: =TRUNC(SQRT(SUM(($B$2-AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6))^2,($B$3-AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6))^2,($B$4-AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6))^2,($B$5-AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6))^2,($B$6-AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6))^2)/4),0)/AVERAGE($B$2:$B$6) This is basically the longhand version of STDEV/AVERAGE which I have found gives the actual number I am lo...

Referencing an excel 'cell' value on the shapesheet screen
I have a value in an excel spreadsheet, Test.xls for example at cell 'A1', that I want to use in the PinX field of a shapesheet. How do I reference the excel sheet in the shapesheet window? I tried to use ='Path\[Test.xls]Sheet1'!A1 to do this but it didn't work. Thanks for all your help. Hi Fred, That's a cool idea and it makes perfect sense, but... I know the ShapeSheet looks like Excel, but unfortunately, you can't do this directly. You could write some automation code that might be able to do some sort of linking, but this capability isn't built ...

How to Auto UPC codes?
The company I work for purchased RMS about 6 months ago and nothing has been setup. In fact, I think I'm the 1st person to actually use the system. The company deals in retail furniture and our problem is that a majority of our merchandise doesn't have a UPC code. I've entered about 1,000 items with random codes, but it's taking too long. Is there any way to get the system to automatically make a UPC code for new merchandise? Kind of like how the account numbers will automatically use the next number in line?
