Cut And Paste Worksheets

Floyd Said:

Excel Super Question - Entering same data across unlike worksheets in different columns -without cut and paste

We Answered:

I presume you've considered consolidating and using pivot tables so some other options

- restructure you spreadsheets. Build a master sheet that maintains your 'data model'
- reference the cell from your main worksheet in all other dependent sheets.
- consider a database, even a simple one like MS Access may be your next bet. You can easily model master data such as customer information in a table and any other table dependencies on the customer can refer to the primary customer table

Excel formula that sorts identical information to different worksheets?

We Answered:

Name all your columns in the master sheet. Create the 15 tabs for each sort in the workbook. Then record a macro to run after adding each new row of data. After you start recording you sort the first sheet by colm A then copy the whole sheet (click in top left corner before A and above 1) and paste in sheet 2. Sort by appropriate colm and then copy and paste to sheet 3. Repeat for all sheets and then stop recording.
You then run the macro everytime you add new data.

Gina Said:

How do you create a new worksheet with identical setup (margins, fonts, etc., as my first worksheet?

We Answered:

After you have setup your base sheet, right click the sheet tab and select 'Move or Copy'.

When the Move of Copy window appears, check the 'Create a copy' check box and select where you wish it to be added to the workbook.

An identical copy will be inserted.

How to merge the data of two worksheets to one?

We Answered:

If you have Microsoft Access this can be performed much easier and quicker. Simply by putting the data into Two tables you can easily link the two tables by employno and then get the data in one view. You can also then take that info and copy it into Excel. Within Excel I do not know an easy way of doing this unless you want to get into Code writting. Still easier to do in Microsoft Access.

Hilda Said:

How do you hide pictures or objects in Excel?

We Answered:

Try making the picture your background. Go to Format, Sheet, Background. Find your saved picture and click insert. That forces the picture behind the cells, then you can just fill color over the cells.
Not sure why you are cutting and pasting colored cells onto another worksheet. You could just select the cell you want to remove and select no fill from the color grid. You can email me if you have any questions. I can probablly help you out. I use Excel every day.
