Excel workbook error


I came across this issue today. An update to the Office Compatibility Pack that was still on a computer caused the default PROGRAM for .docx and .xlsx files to be the Microsoft Open XML Converter program and make the "Default Programs" in Control Panel think that Excel and Word were actually the Microsoft Open XML Converter scholarship essay writing assistance program as well.UNINSTALLING the Office Compatibility Pack in Programs and Features and then a simple reboot fixed the issue.
Also:
1: Try to repair it manually when MS Excel does not automatically STARTS File recovery mode.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click OPEN.
Now select the corrupted workbook that you want to open.
Click the arrow NEXT to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
Choose either Repair (to recover as much of the FILE data) or Extract data (to extract values and formula when repair process is not successful).
2: Open with Open Office: Try to open your Excel file in Open Office. It is an open-source Office suite that is able to open & SAVE Microsoft Excel files.
3: Save in HTML Format: Open your Excel file and save it in HTML format. By saving the workbook in HTML format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
4: Save in SYLK Format: Open your Excel file and save it in SYLK format. By saving the workbook in SYLK format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
5: Try 3rd party software like Excel Repair Toolbox

Whenever I open a new spreadsheet now it automatically opens up a spreadsheet calles PERSONAL. Why is that and how can I get rid of it... I think it started after a did a macro but I am not sure. Thanks,...


You're right - it was caused by recording a macro. When you record a macro you are given the option to store the new macro in "This Workbook", a "New Workbook" (the default), or in a "Personal Macro Workbook". It looks like you selected "Personal Macro Workbook".
The recorded macro is stored in a special workbook called "Personal.xls". This workbook is loaded every time Excel is loaded. If you don't want this workbook loaded, then just delete it or rename it.
The file is buried deep in Microsoft's application data area. On my Vista computer it's in C:\Users\frogfund\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART On my Windows XP computer it's in C:\Documents and Settings\frogfund\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART. Depending on your computer your Personal.xls might be in a slightly different location. You might need to do a search using Windows Explorer.
If you are still having troubles finding personal.xls 1. Open Excel, 2. Open the Visual Basic editor (hit Alt-F11 or click Tools-Macro-Visual Basic Editor) 3. Click Tools-References to bring up the references dialog 4. Click on VBAProject in the list. The file location will be displayed near the bottom of the dialog box. Sometimes this might be cut off at the end, but it should give you a good idea where the file is located. 5. Click Cancel to close the dialog.

What are uses of vlookup n hlookup?


An implementation of the vlookup in Excel could be:
You have an Excel table with student names and their grades.
You wish that you could somewhere in the sheet type a student name, and immediately retrieve his grade (based on the data in the table).
To achieve this, you can use "Vlookup": the function will look for the student’s name in the first column in the table, and will retrieve the information that is next to his name in the second column (which is his grade).

Hlookup is the same excpet it is for data arranged by rows instead of columns.

HOW TO STRIP DELIMITED CHARACTERS FROM SPREADSHEET


The short of it is this ...
Match the data in each location and store it the same way. As a number or as a string. I would say, looking at your data, that these are probably strings of numbers. Put the apostrophe in front of both pieces of data at both locations so they match. I tried a simple test in Excel and adding the apostrophe in front of all the uses of this data will match everything.

The long of it is this ...
Now, I don't know your technical expertise, but I'll try to put it simply. The hard part to understand in database and data storage, is that not all numbers are numbers.

For example, a phone number 8005551212 is not a number. It's a string of numbers. This is because every single position from the 8 to the 2 is a significant position. Another example is a a social security number. The arbitrary SSN of 002003421 is a string of numbers. The first two 0's will be stripped off in Excel if put in as a number, thus ALL number but be retained in their original significant position.

The apostrophe (added by the user) forces Excel interpret the cell data as a string, instead of number, preserving all the characters in their original form, and doesn't try and tinker with the formatting.

The other reason is that the data you've provided is WAY BIG for a number. Not a lot of systems in the world will do calculations against such big numbers. This is why I "guess" that they should be strings (adding the apostrophe to the front of the data in the cell).

How do you know if data should be stored as a string or as a number. The tall tale question is "will I be using these numbers in calculations." If you do, it's a number, if not, it's a string (add the apostrophe). A second question could be "do I need all positions to retain their original information" as a literal.

Please ask any questions.

Merging Data in 2 Separate Excel Workbooks


If the First Name and Last name are equal to both work sheets, I will just sort them by First Name and Last name and copy the results into a separate work sheet. If the names are different you will have to use Access: This can be easily done with Access and SQL, just import both work books into different tables to access and use the create query wizard, play with the results until you will get the result you want. Access will also solve the duplicate problem easily. Very important: You will have to use join properties: Read help about join properties and understand how this works... Afterward you can export it back to Excel or use Copy/Paste. If you can't use Access and have only Excel: You will have to use Vlookup on various fields until you will get the result you want. Its a hard work but in the end you will get the same result as access. Let me know what happend Daniel
