Increment a number per record in Microsoft Excel

Say I want to creat a template work order in excel. Each time I open a new record or save a new record, can I have Excel automatically increment the record number on the form so I can have a unique work order number each time without manually putting it in?

For what you are talking about doing, Microsoft Access would probably be a better option. With Microsoft Access, you can create a custom form and have it automatically give a number.

Excel Error Message.What can I do to stop this error?


A corrupt excel spreadsheet can be repaired by using Open and Repair technique. It is a built-in repair function that opens a corrupt excel file forcefully.
*OpenMS Excel >pressCtrl+O >locate corrupt excel spreadsheet and select it.
*Click on the arrow shown besideOpenbutton>selectOpen and Repair.
It will take just a few seconds to be completed and selected file will be opened, if possible.

Or if this doesn't work, one may take help of a third-party

Forgot password to open Excel sheet


If you mean that you can open the Workbook and read the Worksheet - then all you have to do is select all and paste it to another Worksheet. This will allow for changes of formulas etc.

If you mean the whole Workbook - then I dunno.

In future, either use the same password for everything (easy to remember) or Protect the work with nothing entered into the password field (leave this blank). This last will protect the work from people who try to guess your password, but will be easy for you to remember - eg every password is left blank.

If you must use unique passwords, then keep a record of them somewhere other than on your computer.

Sorry I can't help with the "Workbook" solution - but somebody else out ther may be able to do so.

Macro on excel


Macros are a timesaving feature that allow you to record a sequence of actions that you do in excel, and replay them back later.

You give each macro a name, and you can invoke them later, and Excel will "do" whatever it is you did when you recorded the macro.

To record a new macro:
1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Record New Macro...
3) Type in a name for your macro and hit OK

(A new toolbar will popup with a "stop" button on it. Excel is now recording everything you do)

4) Do something, like, for example, select some cells and make them bold.
5) Click the "stop" button.


Now your macro has been recorded! You can play it back later by:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Macros...
3) Select your macro from the list
4) Click "Run"

The actions you performed earlier will now be executed.



-------


Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications, or "VBA". It is a programming language which uses the Excel Object Model to perform various actions. You can edit and create custom macros by writing the code manually in VBA. To do this:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to tools->macros->macros...
3) Select an already existing macro
4) Click "Edit"

(The visual basic editor will open, showing you the code for your macro)

At this point you are writing a program in Visual Basic. To learn how to edit macros, you need to learn visual basic, as well as the specific quirks related to excel macros in visual basic.

Recording a macro, and then using it as a template while you edit it is a common trick for making macros manually more quickly.

If you are not familiar with VB, I would not suggest attempting to edit your macros in any but the most simplest of ways. If you're brave, you can try to learn about editing macros in VBA here:
