Odbc Teradata Connection

I'm having trouble linking tables into access from a Teradata database through ODBC. Most tables are timining out before the table links.

I'm not sure what could be causing this. If I connect to the tables through "Queryman" the performance is pretty good, but I would really like to use some pass-through queries so I can contain all of the components within the access database.

Things to look for...?

I'm pretty new at VBA and was wondering if you could help me out on this:

I have created a VBA userform but will need to have it used by at least 5 users. My question is, can it be done with all users working at the same time and when saving their work all data entered will go to one master excel sheet? if yes, would you be kind enough to share the code?
MS Access is not an option for me so I was wondering if you could help me do this in excel.

thank you so much and would really appreciate to hear from anyone soon.

Hi there,

I have a piece of code called ConvertDates that formats data contained on 6 worksheets. The 6 data sheets all contain a data connection to a website of foreign exchange tables.

What I want is for my code to execute as soon as the data connection refresh has finished.

When I use the statement


Application.Run "Project1.xlsm!ConvertDates"

The code executes the macro whilst the refresh is still happening, thereby screwing up my results. I don't really want to use a timed wait, because the refresh speed is going to vary from user to user.

Is there some way I can tell excel to wait till the refresh has finished and then execute the code?

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Hey there,

I have been tasked with introducing userforms into an excel sheet and tbh I'm quite amazed that excel has this capability of adding userforms to excel sheets.

Anyway, I have 2 columns of data in an excel sheet and I wish to add this to a userform so that the userform displays the 2 columns beside each other with headings, like a table. The user should then be able to select a particular row and insert it into the specified cell.

I would also like the user to select a row on the table and then be able to bring up another table depending on the row selected...basically so that the user can draw deeper into the information that they require.

I have an example excel sheet where I have 2 sheets. One sheet is the user entry sheet called User Entry Screen. the next sheet is the tables sheet where my tables are held. Once the user selects the cell shown in the example sheet, it should then bring up the user form. the user then, depending on which item clicked, then gets shown the next window with a table and info on it. then user should then be able to select an item and the cells on the user entry screen would then get populated.

Personally I think this is a really tricky challenge and any help with doing this would be extremely appreciated.

I'll post up further comments as I am trying to work my way through it!



Is it possible to apply a filter to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook, using the same filter criteria?

For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?

I hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help.

I would like to copy a small table from Word into one cell in an Excel
worksheet. The first column of the table is a list of numbers. I tried
converting the table into text with manual line breaks and tab stops to
divide columns and rows, but that didn't solve my problem.

Excel pastes the data into several rows. When I try to merge them, I
get a warning that the selection contains multiple data values, and
merging into one cell keeps the upper-left most data only.

What I tried that didn't work:
* Formatting the Excel cells as text before pasting the data.
* The various options for "Paste Special." The closest I got was
inserting the table as a Document Object, which could be a workaround,
I guess.
What I am saving for when all else fails:
* The obvious solution of copying row by row into one Excel cell.

The data in the table is information about my dad's medications. I
would like to have reference charts of how to identify the strength of
each tablet by its color and markings. I got the info from the
manufacturers' websites and entered it into tables in Word, which I
would like to copy into a more comprehensive file I am creating in
Excel. The first column of each table is the strength of the tablet,
entered as 1 mg., 2 mg., etc. The subsequent columns describe the
shape, color, and markings. There are 3 tables, each with about 4-5

Is there a way to copy each one - whether as a table or as text - into
a single Excel cell without losing data?

Many thanks.

I have a very simple pivot table that I am trying to use as a data source for a VLOOKUP request. Unfortunately, every time I do it I get the result #NA. I have tried recreating the results from the pivot table in the worksheet next to it, and am able to use VLOOKUP on them successfully, but as soon as I point the VLOOKUP array to the pivot table, I get the #NA result

Can VLOOKUP be used on pivot tables? If so, is there any special syntax I need to use?


In Excel there is a difference between cells that are blank (= "") and that are empty. You can make blank cells empty by selecting them and pressing the delete key, but I need a fast way to do this on all blank cells in a large worksheet. The only way I have found is with a VBA macro that loops through every cell, tests for '.Value = "" ' and then uses the '.Clear()' function, but doing this on 30 columns x 10000 rows is far too slow. Any solutions?

(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)

I feel like this should be really easy and I am just out of it today but I cannot figure this out. I want to lock a row and filter (with filter,not sort, tool) the other rows. I attached an example

The row in RED I want to never be changed or added in the filter, but I want row 2 and 1 to filter together. So I want (in this case) the flavor to filter with the same number. SO i guess the filter process would be dependent upon the total number of votes. Any ideas? Thanks!

I had to create the information in tables and went from there. Got it. Thanks!

I have an Excel workbook that was created by a former coworker. It includes a macro that, among other things, displays a message box about the 2008 file. The macro runs as soon as the file is opened. I'd like to access that macro to correct the date to 2011 and see what else, if anything, it's doing for me (it doesn't appear to do much). I can find references to creating macros to hide and unhide rows/columns and I found ways to delete all macros in a workbook, but I cannot find anything about unhiding a macro without knowing its name.

Does anyone know of a way to unhide this macro?

I am new to using Excel and I am not very computer literate. I am looking for some help with a spreadsheet I am making. Here is the problem:

I have a column of 14 numbers in cells A1 to A14. If all of these values are less than 2%, I would like a "Pass" to display in cell B1. If any of these values are greater than 2% I would like a "Fail" to display in cell B1.

I have got a formula that works for a single cell but I can't figure out how to get it to apply to more than one cell. For example, I have entered =IF(A1<2,"Pass","Fail") in cell B1. Now if the value I enter in A1 is less than 2, it shows a "Pass", and if the value in A1 is greater than 2 it shows a "Fail" in cell B1. How can I get this to apply to all of the cells from A1 to A14?

If somebody could help me out that would be great.


How do I set the formula if

if F1...I1 <10 = Pass, >=10 Fail (and highlighted red), and any cell between F1....I1 is empty = blank

Greetings all,

How do I link cells so that I can make data entries into either cell? I believe this is called 2 way cell linking.

In short, I want to have a cell on one tab linked to a cell on another tab and be able to change the value of both cells by entering data either tab.

I have found similar posts on the forum, but nothing without use of a userform.

I have the following code:


Sub Development()
 Pass = InputBox("Please enter development password", "Password")
 If Pass = "XYZ" Then
 Else: MsgBox ("Password incorrect, please try again")
 End If
End Sub

This works, but I want to hide the text as it is entered.
Is there a way I can enter this as a property? i.e. = ... or something?? I've tried what seems intuitive, but nothing works.


Hi All,

I've been struggling with this for a while now and can't believe how hard it is!. I've searched on this site and on others to get some clarification but to no avail.

It's pretty simple really. I have a user form which contains a tex box for a user to input the date I want the format to be dd/mm/yyyy but can't find out how to set the format of the text box to this.

Please can someone give me a bit of guidence or link me to a good rescource if missed it in the search.

Thanks in advance.


I would like to send an Excel file with hyperlinks of photo's attached to cells but when it is sent the recieving person cannot access the hyperlinks anymore. I am using 2007, I have tried to send the folder but that didn't seem to work. Any other way around this?

Hi there,

I'm very new to Excel, and I'm having trouble figuring a few things out. Hopefully this will be very easy for you guys!

In Sheet 1, I have a column of cells that I would like to also appear in Sheet 2. If I add a new row to the column in Sheet 1, I would also like it to be updated automatically in Sheet 2. Currently, I can get it to show the contents of individual cells from Sheet 1 in Sheet 2 by using this formula in the formula bar for each cell in Sheet 2:

=Sheet1!A3 (or whichever cell it is)

That's fine, but I'd like to just have a formula that will reproduce the entire column (ie. without a fixed range, as new rows are going to be added to the column).

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very very grateful. Thanks.

i've been trying to figure this out on my own but seem to be hitting road blocks.

i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.

would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.

thank you!

I am a new user and trying to setup a database in excel. I can select all addresses and copy but when trying to paste into excel it does so in 1 cell.

Is there a way I can paste the separate email id's into individual cells so I don't have to do it individually?

Many thanks

I am trying to use the following Access VB code to rename all the files from *.aqi in a directory to *.csv:


Sub test()
Name "C:\myfolder\*.aqi" As "C:\myfolder\*.csv"
End Sub

The problem is that VBA does not accept wild cards (at least as given here).

Any suggestions?



I saw two threads in this forum that asked this question, with no good answer. I am posting this solution for anybody still struggling with this.

The question:
How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?

Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.

Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.

The solution:
Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).
Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.

Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.

Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.

I can't find this solutions anywhere. I know how to send emails from Excel using VBA. When I get to the Body section, I want to insert a clickable link to a website, and also a clickable link to send an email (not as important as the website). Can this be done? I have found code to insert links to files, but none for website links.

I have set up an excel file that helps put together different text components using the vlookup and concatenate formulas for use in one plain text document .

When I try to paste the finished result into notepad/textpad/word it adds extra double quote marks throughout the text. Does anyone know how to paste it without these marks?


I have a template that automatically populates the date field with the
current date when opened, using today(). Users then Save As to have an
archive copy of their spreadsheet. However, when they go back to access
their saved sheet, the date changes from the created date to the current
date. How do I stop this in Excel?

I know that Word lets you do this by changing the code from {DATE} to
{CREATEDATE}, but I can't find a similar setting in Excel.

Please help and thank you!

I have a large database with names, addresses etc. When I try to make changes
to the email address, like change the font color or change on letter, Excel
tries to email the address. If I click in the formula bar to make the
changes, it automatically changes it back to all blue text and underlined. I
have tried to format all of the cells as "Text" to show as entered, but it
doesnt work. PLEASE HELP
