Category: Microsoft Office
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Hi there and welcome

Can you upload the spreadsheet to and provide me with the download link please

I can than do the code needed to accomplished this

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Can't upload file -- CRST, the company i work for, blocked site.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, to clarify. As an example you have data on rows 1,2,3,4 and 5

And you wish to have all this data only on row 1, is this correct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.



Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, are you familar with VBA code?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, it is going to be nessesary to achieve this, which is what I would have done for you if you could send me the file.

Are any sites not blocked where you can upload the file to?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Give me some sites and I will try to upload.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Can you try the ones listed here please
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

blocked by company

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, can you tell me how many rows and columns the data takes up in total please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

4899 rows

22 columns


The only problem is, there may be 15 rows of the same owner id with one piece of information on each row, i.e. name, bond total, ma accounts, 5 rows of tractor information and 6 rows of trailer information.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Can you explain more on the problem please?

Is it that you need to avoid duplicate colums?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I need to make sure all the owner's data is included on the spreadsheet. There might be one row with all the information, name, address. etc. then several rows with nothing but tractor information or trailer information. You really need to see the spreadsheet. I've manually made changes to some of the rows.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
yes, I do need to see the sheet.

Do you have a company FTP server that I can download it from?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You won't be able to get to it. I can't get to it from my computer at home. Couldn't you just create an e-mail address on gmail or something and let me mail it to you. You can always delete the e-mail address after this process is completed.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Sorry Dianne, as annoying as it is it is not allowed to exchange email addresses with clients.

Are you able to copy the spreadsheet to a memory stick and upload it at home?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes. I can copy to a flash drive and load the file at home.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, if you do that than I can work on it once I have seen the file.

Can you let me know when it has been uploaded please
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

That would be tonight and I have to have the spreadsheet completed within the next hour. This is hopeless. I really hope I'm not going to be charged for this.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Here is the ftp server -- the file is in the folder Dianne. you can try to get to.


ftp-23 on ntcrst23



Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Well, I never did get the spreadsheet finished and am working on it at home. If you are still willing to work with me, the file is on http:/'s master list.xls.


It might have been easier to merge the five spreadsheets.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Relist: Other.
Had to complete spreadsheet before 4pm. Didn't complete so brought home. Need to get this spreadsheet completed and expert has not answered.
