Free Microsoft Excel 2013 Quick Reference

Display Sheet Tabs in Two Rows

Hi, I'm using MS Excel 2003 and I've created a workbook with a huge
number of sheets. I need to navigate between sheets frequently.

Is there a way to display the tabs in 2 or 3 rows along the bottom,
instead of constantly scrolling left and right?

The sheet names are already as short as possible and I dragged the
scroll bar to as small a setting as is useful.

Thanks for the help


Is there any way I can display the sheet tabs in two rows. I know you can view several sheets at once. I want to have a single sheet displayed but several rows of sheet tabs on the bottom.

If this description is unclear I made a screenshot and edited in what I'm looking for in paint:

sheet tabs = the things on the bottom with sheet names on them, I'm not sure what the proper name is

I would like the option to be able to see sheet tabs in excel in multiple
rows so that if you have several sheets they are all visible at the bottom of
the workbook.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way for me to display the Name of a Sheet
Tab in a cell.

Take for example I have 4 worksheets, labelled Shawn, Kevin, Mary, & Data.
In data, I want it to show the name of the worksheets. So in Cell A4 I
would like it to say Shawn, then in B4 I can put Shawn's data in. Is there
a function or a formula that allows me to do this.

Thanks for any help.

I work as technical support for a school system -

I have had a few users call in saying that on their excel workbook the sheet tabs are gone--
Believe me - I have checked everything-----

I have it set to display sheet tabs
when she starts a new workbook the tabs appear in the new file-
Sometimes when she gets to the old file the tabs will reappear after she has created a new blank file--sometimes they never reappear

I have checked machine for viruses

I have fixes to get around the problem
but does anyone know why this happens?

Many thanks

Hi again. This is my last question.
Are there in Excel sheet tab properties so that i can choose font, text
color or something else not just tab colour? And can i have those sheet
tabs in two or more rows? because my workbook has a lot of
sheets(something like 100 sheets) and it's confusing when you have to
find a sheet .
Thanks.

Can you write a macro that puts the sheet tabs in alphabetical order?
with two exceptions:
Sheet named Cover is in position1 (it also happens to be sheet1)
Sheet Report Verifier is in position2 (it also happens to be sheet2)

then the remaining sheets are alphabetical by sheet name

Does anyone know how to hide all sheet tabs in an Excel workbook when you open it?

I know how to hide individual sheets but with this approach I believe you need to show at least one sheet to the user (in terms of being able to see the sheet tab at the botton of the screen..

I've seen applications where no sheet tabs can be seen and would like to replicate this. Have checked the file macros to do this but did not find any.

Thanks,

Nick

I cannot find how to hide or unhide sheet tabs in Excel 2007 beta. Am I
missing something?

Hello,

it will be nice if i can format the Worksheet tabs in multiple rows.
Currently tabs of worksheets are linear and sometimes continue forever.

This results:
- searching for a worksheet hard.
- scrolling to a worksheet take multiple clicks
- does not allow organization of worksheet. as in sometime you may have a
set of tabs that fall under the same group. let's say Marketing information,
versus sales information in the same workbook. you may have multiple
worksheets under each one of these. it will be easier to understand the
structure of the workbook if one can put to rows of tabs: marketing and
sales. and under each one can have as many other as necessary.

thanks,

fawzi

How do I display calendar days in a row for a complete month instead of colums?
Need help with a customize function.

I work with files with many sheets. I often need to switch between the sheet
tabs. Right clicking on the lower left corner and selecting the needed sheet
tab is too cumbersome for me. What about displaying all sheet tabs on as many
tab rows as necessary?

Hello...I have a master workbook (Source.xls) with 8 sheets of data, covering a two year period.
Each sheet (tab) contains 1640 rows of data for one quarter of a year.
Each row in each sheet represents one physician's data for that quarter.
Each column in each sheet represents the different criteria or measures for that physician's file.

No physician will have data for all columns.
A sample (Source.xls) of the original master workbook is attached with only 15 of the original 1640 rows shown per sheet. A sample of a physician workbook
(Target.xls) is also attached.

The second workbook (Target.xls) has only one sheet, representing one physician.
Each row in Target.xls represents one quarter of the year.
Each column represents the same criteria as found in Source.xls for that one physician.

We need to be able to look at each physician's file twice a year, hence the decision to create Target.xls for each physician.
I need a macro to copy each row in each sheet in Source.xls (each row represents one physician), create a new workbook with the mnemonic of the
physician (found in B3 of Source.xls) and paste the data in the row that matches the correct quarter in Target.xls.

Depending on the physician, there may only be one quarter's worth of data in Source.xls (and Target.xls), but I still need to see that there are
blank rows (quarters) in Target.xls for that physician.

Any help would be most appreciated.

in cell A1 can you display the sheet tab name so that it the sheet is renamed cell A1 will show the current sheet tab name?

Hi,

I have two spreadsheets with about 30 sheet tabs in each of them.

Is there a simple way to merge the 30 sheet tabs of one file into the
other so I'm left with one file of 60 tabs?

I know you can copy one sheet to another workbook by right-clicking the
tab and selecting "Move or copy" and then selecting the book you want
to copy the tab into, but is there a simple way to merge every sheet at
once or by macro?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Kim

Hi all, sorry for the potential newbie-question but I really didn´t know what
to search for...

I have an Excel 2003 file with 3 sheets (tabs) in it. All 3 sheets look the
same but I would like the third sheet to only show the products bought on
sheet 1 & 2.

The first two sheets are the product-lists - which are pre-filled with
product information and prices. One product for each row and the "F"-Column
is where i will enter the amount of each product which has been purchased -
default value is blank.

However on the 3´d sheet i would like to collect all the products from sheet
1 & 2 that has a value in the F-column. (eg. 1, 2, 3 or 4...)
I do not want the products with a "blank"-value in the F-column to be listed
under sheet 3.

Which commands should i get into to accomplish this?

To clarify: I would like the Products chosen from Sheet 1 AND 2 to be filled
in automatically if they are given a value of 1 or more in the "F"-column.

Very thankful for all help and suggestions.

I have a workbook I use everyday that has so many worksheets they all cannot
be seen at once and I have to move from one end to the other to see them all.
If there is a way that the tabs can be arraged in two rows across the bottom
instead of just one, I could see them all.

Hi, I have an Excel 2010 file with many sheets all linked using hyperlinks. I use the xlsm file for my editing and a web-saved file for viewing by others. How can I show my web file without it displaying the sheet tabs. I hide these tabs before saving as a web page but when I view the web page the tabs are visible. I know everything is possible with Excel so would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.
