Guys I have codes here that is working in Numeric only.
I need a code that whatever is the last number it will generate the next number.Whether I changed the last or not it will generate a next number. Here's my code for the numeric number but I need to generate a number  using alpha-numeric.

Dim Ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set Ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
    r = Ws.Cells(Ws.Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp)
    ReqNo = CODES.Text & "-" & r + 1
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("D:D"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

I dont know what code to use.To generate an Alpha-Numeric number

I have this query that returns the count within each dollar range of quotes. I would like to add the sum of the dollar value of those quotes as well. Is that possible within this one query? If so, how would you do it?

I dont think SQL can store a table with 190,005 columns and 5000 Rows.

What I have now.
Right now what I have is a table with 5001 observations. Each observation has 190,005 possible scenarios.  That's 950,215,005 rows.

My objective.
I would like to pivot this table so my observations is the first column and all the possible outcomes are columns.
The observation is an int and the possible observations are bit (basically yes or no for outcome).

I am using Microsoft SQL server 2016.

My goal.
I am trying to create a matrix to do correlation analysis. I will be bring the data into R some how i am sure that's going to be a challenge as well.

If SQL cant do it that's fine but how then can I get this data into a Text file from SQL?

Basically Type becomes columns and isTrue flag is now going horizontal so there is 1 row per Key. Remember there are 190,005 different Types for each member. Yes I do know every possible Type value. For the sake of this example I didnt think it would be wise to list all 190,005.
Here are my columns
Key, Type, isTrue

How to find the returns of multiple, irregular inflows & outflows over a short period, lets say in 4 months?

I don't want to use the XIRR as it gives the compounded annualized return, which will be misleading. I want to calculate the returns for the duration of the investment only.

For eg., please refer to the attached excel sheet which lists out 5 transactions of Buy & Sell over 4 months period.

Thanks and regards

I received a new computer last week but cannot get Task Scheduler to successfully run a VBS script.  It says it is running but the spreadsheets are not updating.  I created a new script to open Notepad and type a few words and Task Scheduler says it is running, ran successfully, but it did not..Notepad never opened.

I can manually run both scripts and they work fine.  Spreadsheets get updated and Notepad opens, types a few words, and stays open until I close Notepad.

My company's computer support has not been able to help at this time and I am currently waiting for the next level of help.  However, that could be more than a week until someone contacts me.

Attached are some screen shots I hope will help, with some identifying text blacked out with a description of what info was there.

Would any of you have any ideas as to why the scripts work when I double click on them manually to get them to run but Task Scheduler will not successfully get them to run, even though it says they are running?

I run VMware 6.0 one of my ESXI hosts lose two datastores
This host has 4 datastores 3 are local ATA drives and one is NFS
Two 0f the ATA drives are Dead or Error.
If I restart the ESXI Host they come back.

I swapped the drives out with two other drives and the same thing happened Dead or Error after about 24 hours.

I was lucky to have Veeam B& R nd I was able to recover the VMs on those two datastores.

Is my ESXi host corrupted ? or do you guys think I have a hardware problem

I found this

And ran those commands but I had no VMS running on these datastores

Maybe if I put the original drives back in the results may be different I would rather keep the existing drives in now

If there some sort of cache or something I need to clear on this host?

Thanks Tom
Please look at the following VBA code that relates to the attached spreadsheet. The relevant section of this sub is the second paragraph where the first line comment is 'Delete all data in the "TME" tab older than one week. The other paragraphs of this sub work fine as far as I can tell.

This section of the sub refers to the attached sheet, which is the TME tab of a much larger workbook. As you see, the intent of this section of the sub is to delete all records on the TME sheet older than one week from TODAY (the date in column I, Row 1 or relative cell 1,9). For reference, the formula in I1 is =(TODAY()-MOD(TODAY()-1,7))-3. This formula works fine - no need to change it.

The problem is that this second paragraph of the sub below does not actually do any deleting of rows. It also does not stop execution for any errors, but proceeds right on to the next section of the sub without doing anything. I want it to delete all rows from row 2 of the attached sheet and continue deleting until the date in column A is one week older than the date in cell I1.

What needs to be changed to this section of the sub to get it to properly delete the required rows?

I've intentionally left blank columns I, O, R and S.  
Before I add a second row, I'd like to see an error message identifying the unfilled cells, or even better those unfilled cells highlighted.
If this is not able to be done, any suggestions are most welcome.

Im hoping someone can help me. I have the below code with I am using to take screenshots and open up a draft email in Excel with the screenshot in the main body. But the screenshot is really small. I think this is to do with the actual Excel sheet been zoomed to 70% but it doesn't change when I set it back to 100%. Is there any way of writing in the code, or can someone amend my cose so it resizes the picture? The code is...

I have the following query returning results on faculty members by group by facultyid, fname and lname.  The results are displayed in a table on a secured site.  What I need to do next is insert a page break once the facultyid does not match so faculty can print each group on a separate page.  The query is below:

$printqry ="select C.facultyid,S.fname+' '+ S.lname as 'Faculty Name', C.sname, Q.qualify_name, R.fname+' '+ R.lname as Reviewer, C.lastupdate as 'Date and Time Updated'
from courserating as C,FQS_STaff as S,Qualify as Q, Review_Team as R
C.facultyid = S.id and
C.rating = Q.id and

and C.reviewerid = ".$_SESSION['reviewer']." and  convert(date,C.lastupdate) = convert(date,getdate())
group by S.lname, S.fname,C.sname, Q.qualify_name, R.lname, R.fname, C.lastupdate, C.facultyid
order by S.lname, S.fname  ";

    $facultyid = odbc_result($printqrydo,1);
    $facultyname = odbc_result($printqrydo,2);
    $sectionname = odbc_result($printqrydo,3);
    $qualifyrating = odbc_result($printqrydo,4);

I have attached a spreadsheet with some code and functions, but I want to know if I can achieve the following.

Spreadsheet has 7 tabs.  The tabs I am interested in is tabs 2 - 7

Each tab has one row of data.  Now if you go to tab 2 - Risks, the go to column J and in the dropbox click Action.  You will now see that the row has gone.

Go to the Action tab, and you will see that the row appears here, and that is correct.  I column B you will see an R.  As it was moved from the Risk tab, it was enetered as a R for Risk.  But as it now resideds in Action, I want the cell automatically update to an A.

This movement and changes will only aplly for rows that move between Tabs 2-4,  Risk, Action, Isse and Dependancy.

Please let me know if any more info is needed.

Hi ,

I am passing list value into the datatable.

I want to find the column first and then check whether the value exist or not for that columns.

I want to write in LINQ Query as bool true/false

for example,

string str ABSCHECK = ABS A#ABS B // input value

string[] words1 = str.Split('#'); //Splitting the values

words1[0] ABS A //list

           [1] ABS B

The above two value is a column name and i want to check in the below table.


A      ABS A(MN)      ABS A(MX)      ABS B(MN)      ABS B(MX)      ABS C(MN)      ABS C(MX)
100      100      100      100      100      100      100
For ABS A ==> Matching two columns and values present(like ABS A(MN) and ABS A(MX))

For ABS B ==> Matching two columns and values exists (like ABS B(MN) and ABS B(MX))

So i want to return result is true.

if nothing is matching, it means (column not identified and value not present) returns false.

How to write LINQ..?

below is my query

string str ABSCHECK = ABS A#ABS B // input value

string[] words1 = str.Split('#'); //Splitting the values

bool results = (from r in DTTABLE.AsEnumerable()
                           select r.Field<string>(words1.ToList())); // to find out columns and value

but not working..?
These are the codes that are currently working in pulling up the data.
Me.ADDRESS.Value = Sheet1.Range("Ax" & r).Value
Me.ADDRESS.Value = Sheet1.Range("Aw" & r).Value
Me.REMARKS.Value = Sheet1.Range("AY" & r).Value
Me.Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("AZ" & r))  'Where r is the row number

Now I am using these codes to update the file.
Sheet1.Range("AV" & r).Value = Me.RELATION.Value
Sheet1.Range("AW" & r).Value = Me.MOBILE1.Value
Sheet1.Range("AX" & r).Value = Me.ADDRESS.Value
Sheet1.Range("AY" & r).Value = Me.REMARKS.Value
(Need code for the update of picture here....)
I tried these code to update the picture but it won't work.
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("AZ" & r).picture=me.loadpicture.image1
I already tried to invert but still its not working.
Hi Everyone - thanks in advance for taking a look and helping.

I'm trying to build a UDF in VBA that handles cohort math for digital media biz.

It takes as input several 1d arrays, builds a 3d array, then sums along two dimensions of that built array to output a 1d array.

Here's what I wrote in R, which I need to translate into VBA.

maus <- function(
) {
  n <- length(nreach)
  mau.array <- array(rep(0, n * n * n), dim = c(n, n, n))
  for (i in seq(n)) {
    for (j in seq(n)) {
      for (k in seq(n)) {
        if (!(i <= (k - j + 1))) {
        mau.array[i, j, k] <-
          nreach[i] * 
          conversion[i] *
            (seasonal[((i + j) %% ds) + 1] * dispersion[j]) /
                c(seasonal[(((max(i, j) - 1) %% ds) + 1) : ds], rep(seasonal, floor(dl / ds)))[1 : dl] *
                dispersion[1 : dl]
          ) *
          retention[k - i - j + 2]

maus <- colSums(colSums(mau.array))

Open in new window

Also attached is a sample workbook where I've tried to start this effort so you can see how I would use the function in Excel.  

I don't know VBA so would appreciate help translating the function I wrote in R into Excel VBA.  

Thank you in advance I really appreciate the help.
I have what I thought was a well prepared dataset.  I wanted to use the Apriori Algorithm in R to look for associations and come up with some rules.  I have about 16,000 rows (unique customers) and 179 columns that represent various items/categories.  The data looks like this:

Cat1  Cat2  Cat3  Cat4  Cat5 ... Cat179
1,        0,       0,        0,      1,     ...  0
0,        0,       0,        0,      0,     ...  1
0,        1,       1,        0,      0,     ...  0

I thought having a comma separated file with binary values (1/0) for each customer and category would do the trick, but after I read in the data using:

>data5 = read.csv("Z:/CUST_DM/data_test.txt",header = TRUE,sep=",")

and then run this command:

> rules = apriori(data5, parameter = list(supp = .001,conf = 0.8))

I get this error:

Error in asMethod(object):
column(s) 1, 2, 3, ...178 not logical or a factor. Discretize the columns first.  

I understand Discretize but not in this context I guess.  Everything is a 1 or 0.  I've even changed it from INT to CHAR and received the same error.  I also had the customer ID (unique) in column 1 but I understand that isn't necessary when the data is in this form (flat file). I'm sure there is something obvious I'm missing - I'm new to R.

What am I missing?  Thanks for your input.
I'm in the Business Intelligence Department, but practically speaking we're the Reporting Department, your basic operational type of reports - lists, lists, and more lists.

I'm at an institution of higher learning, and a new project has come up for the Math Department. They want to know relationships between courses, grades, etc.


- if someone gets a D in Calc I, what's the likelihood of graduation?  with various permutations, like taking Calc I again
- what's the likelihood of someone getting a D in Calc I, getting a D or F in Calc II
- for placing incoming students in Pre-Calc or Calc I, what are the factors that indicate success? such as Verbal SAT

So I think I've targeted the right discipline (Analytics), but not sure where to take this project.
