Is a shopping web page like amazon , ebay, but I have problems.
All appear in russian.
My page was taken by other user identified as :
 Здравствуйте, ᴡᴡᴡ.Stinte.cloobdkpb.ru!
Ваш пароль успешно обновлен!
Если Вы не отправляли такого запроса, просьба немедленно сменить пароль.

I have change the password but I can't see how to change to spanish or english in any step.

I also tried to enter from google chrome.  But I can't see the option to change the language.....

 :-* :P

The account is hacked, but the strange thing is that I haven't received any advice during this time.
Fortunately I have no pending articles or payments
After translating from russian I can't select several options like account configuration or payment configurations.....

@Contro:
Ok, I'll ask the 'big' question once, and please don't repeat the confusing flurry mesh of info you gave above: What goes into this black box, and what is the expected output? (IOW, what is it to be used for)
you are totally right Ath.
That's the point.
I have tried to explain to Shades. Perhaps you may accomplish there.
 :P
Well, all that you have done is what I explicitly asked not to do: You've added a mishmash of unrelated and useless words that say absolutely nothing about the issue you are trying to resolve. And on top of that you even used 3 posts to do that... >:(
To add insult to injury, you talk about using ahk to do something for you because Excel is 'too big' for you (to handle?).
What kind of help are you expecting?
I think you are angry.
I expect simple help.
It's not my intention to make you angry.
It's not the first time, so I ask you why you like to post in my posts ?. I assume you have good reasons, but I don't understand why you want me to think in the way you do.

This is a help forum. Let someone help me please.

Coding Snacks / copy paste utility for excel
« on: February 09, 2020, 11:58 AM »
In an excel workbook with several worksheets after create a target worksheet a script able to collect by copying the content of each existing worksheet and pasting in the target worksheet by order.

Pasting at the end of the target worksheet

Any script tha make a quick selection of the worksheet is also useful. Any help to make easier the process is welcome.
I am doing copying and pasting from one worksheet to the target one.

Best Regards

P.D. I was thinking in a script language like AHK

I have mounted several xls files in one with https://products.gro...pdocs.app/merger/xls

Generally speaking:
Restarting Explorer is a workaround. And a work-around is by definition not a solution. Only when you feel generous, you could consider it a part of the solution.

@Contro:
Unless you can clearly describe the steps you took to get in trouble, and when repeating these steps you get into the same trouble again, then you can ask a question and likely get an answer that makes the problem go away. Mention anything less? Your guess is as good as mine.
yeap. That's the point. Even tomos agreed for the ocassion.
Unfortunately I haven't all data.
It was during all my moves with excel 2010, the windows explorer and associated management. It's all I can say.

So in response I expect answer with the same problem explained according to people with much observation attitude than me.

 :-* :P

P.D. Am I the only one that have this little problem sometimes ?

if all the sheets are in the same format (all columns match and all formulas are the same) then you're only copying the data (the calculations can be done in the target sheet)

The simplest way to do this for a one time job is to copy + paste - it would have been done in less time than you've spent on this thread

if you need to do this often (ugh...), then its not as simple as just finding an addin.  Every situation is different and you have to make sure the data is clean before you even start (else you just end up with garbage)


Target you have a good nick.
I have done manually, but if I don't put the post how we can enjoy talking about software ?

If I merely search in Father Google how can I share with human sensitive persons my inquietudes ?

 :Thmbsup: :-*

Perhaps it is an idea to export everything into CSV files, combine these text-based CSV files into one and then import the result back into Excel again?

Still, that requires the content of each sheet to be the same as the others.

Exporting everything to CSV should be easy enough with Excel itself. You could use join software for combining these CSV files. Once done with that, you can then use the CSV import functionality from Excel itself to get one worksheet with all the data in a new Excel file with an appropriate name.

Unless there is a need to keep formulas etc. exporting to the simplest data format, using one of many free join software programs to create one big file and then importing this file onto a new Excel file, seems the best way of tackling Contro's problem. To me, at least.
Shades I was thinking in an ahk script.
I am doing manually.

If you export to csv you have a txt plain text.

I finally make work the rdbmerge utility to see that change everything.

It's clear that excel is a "big" program. But perhaps one that have traumatized me in the past like Autocad, microsoft word and some technical software. And of course windows xp pro traumatized me a lot.

I am applying manually from each worksheet the usual or standard copy/paste excel have with no problem.
So perhaps a little script with autohotkey may be useful for me.
I am thinking visit the code snack section.....

Windows 10 home 64
I don't know exactly how I arrive the situation.
I can't move that window
I can't click anywhere in that window
Obviously i can't close, minimize or maximize that window.

You can open other windows folder and goes well, but that ones you can do nothing
Through the task administrator if you close the folder don't obey, we need reiniate the windows explorer to make that problematic window dissappear.

What mistery is this  ?

What I simply need is an utility able to combine the worksheets from a single workbook into a new one by the the method of copy/paste.
Not considering structures or data, only copying from one worksheet to the combined one by order....

1 google search gave me enough information to find this makeuseof page (select Not Now in the red page-blocker when using a decent browser with an ad-blocker), providing not 1, but 3 step-by-step procedures to accomplish what you ask. With the standard product, so no utilities needed, only a rather simple skill: google

As you forgot to mention what Excel version you are using, I assume you have a decently modern version that has a ribbon (Excel 2007 or newer).

The link don't do what I ask.
Use the copy/move option that is not enough to merge sheets in one sheet.

I use a online utility Free Online xls merger that works fine to merge xls files in one file converting every  workbook in a worksheet in my example (just because each workbook only have one worksheet). So I obtain a single xls with a 13 sheets.

The difficult point is get a new workbook with only one worksheet obtained from the previous 13 worksheets.
And in this point the native excel utility is not enough.

 :-*

Note : this is the merger online to group several xls files in one single xls with worksheets created from the original workbooks : https://products.gro...pdocs.app/merger/xls

I have 13 sheets in an excel workbook. Format xls.
I want to join, merge or combine the 13 sheets in only one.
I have tried to select all but moving or copying give not the target.
How can I do that with a free utility ?
Best Regards
 :-* :P

a worksheet merger utility from the same file or excel workbook.

Note : I have tried two utilities from vba code in commercial pages, but don't work. So I would the correct code with no problems.
Note : I am trying to find here : http://www.rondebrui...ns/sectionaddins.htm , seems not commercial.
 :-*
Note : http://www.rondebrui.../addins/rdbmerge.htm
There are two versions depending of excel version .
 :P
 Note : I obtain automation error with the addon and occurr an exception.
then open excel 2010 again and nothing....

So I need a good addin for the occassion or use well the The Ron The Bruin addon

Note : To avoid confuse Ath or any other helper I am trying to determine the exact target to get :

Consolidate in Excel: Merge multiple sheets into one

Merge several excel files in one is done well with https://products.gro...pdocs.app/merger/xls

All my worksheets have the same configuration or formulas.

The target is :
Condensing Multiple Worksheets Into One (Microsoft Excel)

Note 08.02.2020.19.50 : trying this
https://excelribbon...._Worksheets_Into_One

Note : 08.02.2020.20.01 I tried. No good result. So probably the xls files components and threrefore the worksheets have not the same structure.

I must do manually with the old method copy/paste.
Best Regards

I have to run the virtual machine under windows xp pro because is installed there a program that don't works in upper windows operating system.

That old program is able to recognize bc3 standard files FIE/BDC standard for budgets in construction.
so I can drag from the browser the data and are recognized by the old program.

Then. If you assume that I need the old program running in an old operating system you will be able to help me.

The old operating system have an old browser . No enough security, problems with new webs, etc. etc.

The old browser accompany windows xp pro is IE 7.

so I need substitute for a better browser able to see correctly the pages with a decent level of security.

I suggest the link http://www.xpbrowsers.com/

I begin trying this and waiting for someone that in the past had my similar problem.

Best Regards
 :-* :P


Edited : I think it's done.

I enter in the link http://www.xpbrowsers.com/ from the virtual machine. I tried google chrome, but have no support. I couldn't enter in the web.

I try Firefox. Seems a file I can decompress.
I download from windows 10 with firefox to my pc and put in a share folder to enter in the virtual machine.

I decompress there and copy the folder under c:\program files in the virtual machine.

I execute firefox.exe from inside that folder.

I create a shortcut in the desktop.

so seems a sort of portable version of firefox

http://ftp.mozilla.o.../releases/52.9.0esr/

    firefox-52.9.0esr.win32.sdk.zip

Seems to go well now. I can also enter my web.

Best Regards

I have several old virtual machines running under windows xp pro + sp3 with IE 7
At the present moment i can't see many pages, including my own web page (a blogspot....) .

so I would like to solve my problem installing :

a) a portable browser inside the virtual machine.  Sharing a folder outside, in one of my data disks.
b) a system browser inside the virtual machine.

Note : The web browser I use everyday is Firefox.
But for the ocassion I don't need special or relevant features. Even those important ones like to share passwords, favourites, etc.

Note : I need simply good advice. I can risk in my own way http://www.xpbrowsers.com/ , but this is not the target.

If you know a good browser for the ocassion I will adopt.
Best Regards.

Note 2 : the hardware behind is not problem. it's my new laptop . hp pavilion 15-bc520ns,  :P

What is my target ? I have an old program to budgets that use a last price generator online. I need to see that webpage .

Note 3 : A good fear. I use the prntkey to take a screenshot and the virtual machine collapses.....

I have bought two disks.

I try to reassure the disk is good for asus z170k , but they send me to crucial and asus. so I prefer apply the 4wd criteria under my total responsability.

Note : I hope no problems sending to canary islands.....
sometimes I pay and then they tell me they can't send to tenerife.....

« on: January 31, 2020, 06:33 AM »
Stacky promises the best . Experimenting :

Stacky is a small program for Windows that displays contents of a given directory as a list of clickable, labled icons.

 :-*

P.D. I began to fight with the program with no need by my ignorance. Now I will try to follow the instructions.


First condition : use as a toolbar accomplish

AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 12_49_22.png

Second condition drag to the task bar and insert. We can put in any place of the taskbar ----- acomplish

pending : change the icon to the shortcut created. See the content with icons instead of like you see in the image above.

P.D. For me the important thing is have the opportunity now of creating a new shortcut to a folder and put in the task bar. trying.

 :P

Edited 31.01.2020.12.57 :

Second stacky created :
AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 12_57_09.png

I don't understand why but I can see one icon from iWriter.


What's pending now :

For me is enough if a I can launch the folders from an icon in the task bar. At the present moment is the same icon. The icon from the original program Stacky.

AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 12_59_43.png

I suppose this is easy to change with an utility.

At the present moment when you maintain the mouse cursor over the icon the correct legend appear.

I try also with a bat, but I think is better with the program. With 7stacks i was using icon with the initial letter of the folder to see......


Do you know a freeware to change easily the icon to a exe file ?

By some reason some icons are recognised and others no .
See, by example, vlc player recognised, but screenshot captor no.

 :-*

AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 13_09_55.png


Stacky in my system is going well. Is fast and don't hang up. So I think i can configure the rest of elements.

For me is not easy to see how to change the icon .
Or even respect the original icon changing the color or overtype letters on it.

But I know from the past that this icon is changeable.

The best thing would be not to change the original executable icon, only in the shortcuts personalized by folder. Like 7stacks did.

AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 13_15_37.png

I have finished the configuration.
I think is not possible to change the icon . Perhaps with a bat converted to exe.

The first one 4wd propose :


menuApp is flexible

Using menuApp you can display a menu from a shortcut...

...or via hotkeys.

...or by double-clicking on the desktop.

...or by clicking on the system tray icon.

I suppose if double clicking on the desktop then I can fix in the task bar that icon.

I gonna try now.
 :-*

uFF. tOO difficult for me.

If very configurable and assumed all can be done. But the learning curve.....  :-[

Note : I have problems with windows defender and the installer, so I disable the antivirus for installing.

I'll attach the download here so you can try it, it's rather old (2009, that's not a typo), but it's the latest available. Please run some AV across it before actually trying it, just to be sure.
Thanks Ath. Now I am sure I can download.
If not tomorrow I will surf from another station ....

Note : Is downloaded  ;D :Thmbsup:

Note after installation : I am lost !

In the installation directory only a doc and a dll !.
How can I use it ?
I am more used to the icon in the desktop to launch the program.  :-[



It's an extension of your taskbar.  Right click your taskbar and select toolbars, then there should be an entry- not sure if it will say truelaunchbar or not.  Show that bar, then right click on it to get to the options.  For more than that, go to the TLB site.

AsusPortatil - 31_01_2020 , 10_19_04.png

Running to try, but I think is not the same that 7stacks.....

 :-* :P

Note : change the taskbar and introduces another "filosophy" to study :

From AlternativeTo:

MenuApp
Stacky
Yeap, thanks. It's an alternative.

Experimenting ..

What I need is a substitute for 7stacks.

7stacks have this philosophy or working principles :

Works like a windows toolbar in the task bar. Really open a folder and let us see the content : icons to launch programs, other folders includes, any file....

Additionally you select an icon to represent the toolbar or selected folder.

Additionally you can insert the icon whenever you need.

So :
A windows toolbar open a folder and we are able to launch any option inside.

7stacks assign an icon to the toolbar you can insert in any place in the task bar. Changes the way a basic windows toolbar shows the option. With 7stacks you see the icons assigned to the program or file to be launch or open.
