windows – Where does Excel put temp files for sheet access on a shared network drive?

Suppose User A opens a workbook, I believe Excel creates a temp file with this information such that if User B comes along and opens the same workbook, a display appears notifying them User A has it opened.

On a shared network drive, where are these temp files stored so that each node on the network knows to look there? Are they just hidden files in the same location as the workbook?

macros – How to automate save excel file as CSV and run live updates

For starters – I am raw and have limited skills, thus the guidance here is important to me.
We have to supply data to a 3rd party in CSV format. The data must be updated at frequent intervals with a time stamp.Some workbooks at 1 minute intervals and other at 30/60 minute intervals.
To ensure that data is permanently available I have done a little batch file to start the excel file.
Our normal method of collecting data is via excel.
I am able to get the data to update at at frequent intervals (10 seconds) courtesy Mr Google with a macro.The Macro also starts automatically on open event.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime DateAdd(“s”, 10, Now), “Calculate_Range”

End Sub

I have however run into issues when trying to save this to CSV file – the guidelines found thus far does not help me to have this process run unattended. I have managed to get past the overwrite query, but when I tried the format acknowledgement it fails.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.Run “VBATest.xlsm!Calculate_Range”
ChDir “E:PI”
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=”E:PIVBATest01.xlcsv”, FileFormat:=xlCSV, _
Application.Run “VBATest.xlsm!Calculate_Range”

End Sub

What I need to accomplish is to

  1. run the excel file automatically – the batch file can be added to scheduler to restart this
  2. Update the values at preset intervals – the macro I have now, can run this
  3. Save sheet as CSV file automatically without intervention required (overwrite and format compatibility)
  4. Restart the excel file – batch file in scheduler if there is now other better method.

Thank you for your feedback

Excel: How To Write A Potential “IF” Formula With 3 Outcomes (For Work)

I am looking to potentially create an “IF” formula (might be a different one) for my workplace. I’m not the best at excel, but not terrible either but am having trouble with this.

My workplace wants me to create a formula in which there will be 3 outcomes for our temperature testing. Currently I have the formula written like this for cell H46: =IF((OR(D46>=C46, E46>=C46, F46>=C46)), “FAIL”, “PASS”)

C46 is the max. allowable temperature, and D,E and F46 are the temperatures that were taken from the test. The formula basically says if D,E or F46 are greater or equal to C46, its a “FAIL” otherwise, “PASS”. The issue with my managers is that if C46 is blank, the formula counts “FAIL”.

They want to have it where nothing changes above, EXCEPT the want to have it as well if C46 is blank with no values, that H46 will show “N/A”. I don’t know how to keep the current formula, but add in if C46 is blank that “N/A” or “n.a” will show instead of “FAIL”.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated, thank you!

footer – Header won’t appear when I open the Excel file on share point, because on the VIEW menu only the NORMAL view exists. How can I add Page Layout View

I have created an Excel file with Header and Footer and I can view the Header and Footer using the Page Layout view when opening the file in my computer,
I upload the same file on sharepoint and open it on sharepoint, I can not see the header and Footer, because only Standard ( or normal) View is available on Excel in Sharepoint.

How can I add the Page Layout view to Excel on Sharepont Excel.
I am not the admin and I am not a programmer.

website – Turn an excel sheet to a webpage

I have an Excel sheet that we use to calculate sales commissions. We, sometimes, share the file with individuals that we prefer they don’t see the formulas. One thought came to mind is to convert the Excel file to a webpage as a way to make it easier to share with people form outside the organization and also to protect the calculations that we do in the background by hiding the formulas. What methods or apps are there to help in achieving that, our website is on wix business.

microsoft excel – Neater way to ignore errors in LibreOffice Calc?

Let’s consider any (potentially lengthy) function that can produce an error. For discussion’s sake, I’ll use =1/0. I can ignore the resulting error by using the following formula:


As you can see, the function (e.g. 1/0) is typed twice. Is there a neater way to do this?

excel – Auto calculate random number in between given range sums up to specific value

I’m an engineer trying to formulate to ease my work, basically in excel or macro. I really need help of someone expert could help me to formulate. The situation are as follows and I simplified it.

I have a range distance length of X meter box where total number woods can be placed inside of a box for e.g. The wood consist of a Type A = 2.6-2.8 meter length, Type B = 3.9-4.2m and Type C 5.2-5.6m in length.

Within a given number of box length (X value), the box can be filled up with any 2 or 3 combination of Type A B C as long it fits the given length. It could be could be 4xType A of 2.750m + 3xType C of 4.111 m = X value. Or combination multiple Type ABC in given range of length as long it sums up to X value.

It is like a multiplication of 1, 2 or 3 type value with a given range, sums up to X value.
