Excel locks file when using data connection to other sheet.

Is there a command / macro that can be run to unlink a file after it has been "refreshed" from excel

Posted by on

  • PalmsWest Apr 28, 2009

    I'm using Excel 2007 Data Connections as a source for data to use in a Pivot Table. The source data is another Excel file with multiple sheets. The source data is located on one of the sheets in the Excel source file that has a named range to identify the data source location on the source sheet.



    I setup a data connection by pointing to the source file location and named range setup in the source file. The source file is open. I select the Data Connection as the data source for the pivot table. The data is imported successfully and the refresh function is working.



    I then close the source file and the pivot table will no longer refresh. The pivot table can't find the data. The only thing that changed was to close the source file. I'm not understanding how the data connections work. Then I open the source file and the pivot table still won't refresh and has the same problem.

    There is a addin called "dellink.xla" that you can use to delete the link
    (see http://support.microsoft.com/?id=188449), but if you need to keep the
    results from the link, then you have to manually copy the cells, and paste
    it as values, or use Excel 2002 or 2003 to remove the link.

Dear Sir, In case there are atleast 80 files or more having same format containing datas in columns in each file with different figures, I want to merge all file in a single sheet in one shot. Kindly...


Hi,

If the column names and orders are same across files, then you can directly use the MS Excel's import data function, this will do your job.

Alternatively, if you want to do it manually, import each file in separate excel worksheet using data import wizard or simple copy paste of data (in latter case you have to use Text-to-Col feature of excel), and then manually append all figures (copy-paste in one go) to any external excel sheet.

Then finally, export/save as that external sheet to any filename of your choice.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

I have solution for your second problem.
You just need to use macros to protect all the sheet at the same time. Just open "Macro>Record new Macro" to insert new macros to your files.

This will save some your valuable time.

Macros Command Help


Your Excel may have a different "Macro Security" setting. Your "Macro Security" can be adjusted: Tools, Macro, Security. I highly recommend the "Medium" setting. This will prompt you when an Excel file is opened that contains Macros to Enable or Disable. If you choose a security setting of "Low" please be very careful as this will allow Macros to run without any notice, VERY DANGEROUS.
