Excel updating separate spreadsheets

And next week I’ll show you how you can view two sheets from one workbook side by side. In the View tab, you’ll find a button labelled View Side by Side. w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8955" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=645&h=149" alt="view side by side excel" width="645" height="149" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8956" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=645&h=508" alt="View side by side - result excel" width="645" height="508" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png?view side by side excel " data-medium-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=300" data-large-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=641&h=149 641w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=150&h=35 150w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=300&h=70 300w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=768&h=178 768w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/5-view-side-by-side.png? w=1024&h=238 1024w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/51132w" sizes="(max-width: 645px) 100vw, 645px" / If you have two spreadsheets open in, say, Excel 2010 (from which these screenshots are taken, but the process is the same for Excel 2007, 20), pressing this button will show you both spreadsheets, one above the other (this always reminds me of playing competitive driving games on the games console): view side by side – result excel " data-medium-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=300" data-large-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=645&h=508 645w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=1288&h=1016 1288w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=150&h=118 150w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=300&h=237 300w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=768&h=606 768w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6-view-side-by-side.png? w=1024&h=808 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 645px) 100vw, 645px" / You can see that the Synchronous Scrolling button is highlighted in the image above.Always save a copy of your document before manipulating it.I bear no responsibility for any pickles you might get yourself into!If they aren't, a message appears, and the code stops running.This prevents you from accidentally overwriting an existing record with blank cells.While you are viewing a record, you can change its data, then click the Update button to copy those changes to the database.For example, if you discovered that there was an error in the order quantity, you could change it.

Here, Spreadsheet 1 is just showing at the top, but if I click on Spreadsheet 1, Spreadsheet 2 will be sticking out at the bottom. w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8964" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/14-arrange-all-cascade.png? w=645&h=435" alt="excel arrange all cascade option" width="645" height="435" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/14-arrange-all-cascade.png? w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8968" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/18-return-to-single-sheet-view.png? w=645&h=414" alt="excel return to single sheet view" width="645" height="414" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/18-return-to-single-sheet-view.png?

and end up with two documents next to each other (you can, of course, move the boundary between them to make one bigger and one smaller): Two Word documents showing side by side " data-medium-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=300" data-large-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=643&h=350 643w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=1286&h=700 1286w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=150&h=82 150w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=300&h=163 300w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=768&h=418 768w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/2-arrange-word-documents.png? w=1024&h=557 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 645px) 100vw, 645px" / But, if you’ve ever tried to do this with two Excel spreadsheets, you’ll have found that you move one over … w=300" data-large-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=645&h=623 645w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=150&h=145 150w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=300&h=290 300w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=768&h=742 768w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=1024&h=990 1024w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/31079w" sizes="(max-width: 645px) 100vw, 645px" / … w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8954" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=645&h=349" alt="Second spreadsheet hidden" width="645" height="349" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png?

Moving an excel spreadsheet " data-medium-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/3-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? and the other one moves to sit underneath it, inaccessible and impossible to view at the same time as, say, Spreadsheet 1: Second spreadsheet hidden " data-medium-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=300" data-large-file="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=645&h=349 645w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=1287&h=698 1287w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=150&h=81 150w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=300&h=163 300w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=768&h=416 768w, https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/4-arrange-excel-spreadsheets.png? w=1024&h=555 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 645px) 100vw, 645px" / Move Spreadsheet 2 across to the right and Spreadsheet 1 will follow it. I’m going to show you how you can view both (or even lots of) spreadsheets on the same screen, in various arrangements, and then return to viewing only one.

Or, type a record number in the yellow cell, to view that record number Instead of scrolling through all the records, you can select a specific record, based on its ID number.

In the sample workbook, the Order number is used as the ID number.

This is a really useful function – if you have both spreadsheets lined up to start with (i.e. w=645" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-8957" src="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/7-view-side-by-side-synchronous-scrolling.png? w=645&h=550" alt="view side by side synchronous scrolling" width="645" height="550" srcset="https://libroediting.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/7-view-side-by-side-synchronous-scrolling.png?
