Inserting charts into many workbooks
I'm using Excel 2007 and am pretty new to VBA. I have a folder with 40
or so workbooks- all with the same worksheet table format. The worksheets
are huge (20 000 + rows, 50 or so columns). I need to open a workbook, make
several fully formatted graphs, then insert the same graphs into every
workbook , updated them with that workbooks' data.
Any ideas on code for this?
This isn't fully automated, but it will save some time. In one workbook,
create the chart and format it to your specs. Then paste the chart into
another workbook, and use the utility linked to i...Passing data from one form to another
Hello I have a form called frmMaindB and it has 5 text boxes on it
(txtEmployeeTime, txtDTRegular, txtDTReason1, txtDTReason2, txtDTMaintenance)
when I double click on the text box it opens up a pop up form named
frm_DecimalConversion. On this form I have two text boxes one box I enter
data into and the other calculates or converts the data to a decimal. The box
that converts the data is called txtDecimal. Then I have a close button which
I want to use to close the pop up form and insert the data into the text box
I double clicked in to get the pop up or (frm_DecimalConversion). I have r...data value in Form field if no table entry

called [ContactFirstname] and [ContactLastName]from my table
There are however some customers for whom I do not have names and therefore
instead I would like Sir/Madam to appear in the field in the form
I think I have seen this done somewhere using ELSE? but can't find it
Any help/ideas gratefully received
Perhaps something like this:

I just installed a new hard drive and used the drive's
utility program to copy everything from my old drive to

Now Outlook isn't going out to my ISP's server and

the "no transport provider available" error. (My

I looked online for some help. One recommendation was to
delete the Personal Folder and create a new one. I did
that, but then all the messages I had disappeared and it

I am creating data in an Excel spreadsheet. I then want to get that data
into a simple text email. I have some problems and questions...
1) how do I get the columns of data to line up evenly when I copy the data
to email text ? Keep in mind I need to be in simple text format, not HTML
or rich text.
Every time I do this, all columns become chaos and are unreadable.
2) Is there a simple way to automate the creation of an email from an excel
file ? this is less important to me.
Thanks in advance

I've created what we'll call a seed worksheet to be used over and over for

another workbook, how can I accomplish the workbook data not being

Sorry about the subject--I couldn't figure out how to describe it
I have a large file (16,000 records) of amounts billed by roughly
10,000 service providers. A number of these providers have multiple
office locations, so each record is unique to a specific office
location. In other words, a provider who billed from 3 different
office locations will have 3 entries. Each provider has a unique
provider ID number, which stays the same regardless of which office
location he is billing from.
I want to be able to subtotal the amount billed by each provider for
all their office locations...How can I keep track of when (date and time) data is entered into.
I am trying to create a spreadsheet for a high school class. I need to be
able to track when a student has entered data into specific cells of the
spreadsheet. Any ideas?
In the code behind the worksheet, enter (eg)
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Cells(1, 1).Value = Now()
This will enter in Cell A1 the date and time at which any entry is made in
If you need the location of the time-stamp to vary according to which cell
is changed then you can test the value of Target and vary the destination

...Showing the perimeter of a set of (X,Y) data!
Good day all,
I need to plot the perimeter of a set of data.
I have a set of (X,Y) data with error bar and it is a nice mess so I
just actually need to see (show) the area were the data can be found.
Then hopefully overlay an other set of (X',Y') data and show that they
both cover the same surface of existence.
i.e this is a set of metrology measurement in X and Y of a part build
from different mould. Obviously you get a nice cloud of X and Y but
does the new material offer the same 'cloud' ?
I think the easiest way to do this is plot the data on a XY Scatter cha...How do I get total value data labels in a stacked bar chart?
