Macro for transferring data from excel to word
I have an excel file and a word file. I want a macro in excel which
would open the existing word file in system, then go to the specified
location in the word file, delete the existing picture from word file,
copy a range/picture from excel file and then paste that onto the word
file as picture enhanced format or bitmap format.
Which code should i use for the same?
It's generally advisable to "pull" data rather than to "push" it. So this
means you should code this in Word VBA. I suggest you post the question in
the Word Newsgrou...Working with Both Excel 2003 and 2007

Since Excel and Word seem to be part of the same
MS-Office software set, I assume that Excel can
easily be used to open Word??? Just wondering
if I can automate Word from the Excel application
in any way.
Yo can do it this way:
Dim oWord As Object
Dim oDoc As Object
Set oWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
oWord.Visible = True

We just installed Office 2007 on our pc's. In Excel 2003 if someone was in
the spread sheet it would bring up a "read only" box listing the name of the
person that was in the spreadsheet. 2007 just says "another user" is in it.
Is there a way to change that to show the name of the user? The users names
already show on thier own pc's in Office.

...copy chart & colors change
If I make a copy of a chart (line type with 20 sets of data), it will look
just like the original. If I change the source data in the copy all 20 lines
change color. Why is this and how can I prevent it?
Yes, that can be very frustrating. Unfortunately, XL essentially 'redraws'
the entire chart. I don't know of any way to retain original information
other than to have a macro redo the format the way you want after XL finishes
doing its stuff. Of course, you can always do the same by hand and that is

I want to create a form in Excel that I can send out so people can fill it
out electronically and then send it back to me. I need lines in the form and
when I add lines I have to widen the column and then it messes up the
previous wording. I know it can be done but not sure if I have to protect
it, create a template (how do I do that), or lock some of the cells. Help!
For lines have you considered simply bottom borders?
i.e. wording in A1 bottom borders on B1:E1
Or lines drawn from the Drawing Toolbar.
No need to widen any columns.

I am scheduling an Excel workbook using the Scheduler Tool of Windows.
It just calls an Excel workbook, which opens, does some autorun processing
and closes again.
This works well, except when I have excel already open. In that case another
instance of Excel is opened (by the scheduler) and I get the "File in Use"
popup stateing that my PERSONAL.XLS is locked for editing. And gives me a
chance to cancel (button). A logical thing but unhandy in this context.
