This problem sounds familiar.
It's not a normal.dot type problem is it? Where the originator used normal.dot as their doc tempate, saved it as .dot again and it's screwing up everyone's normal.dot that reads / alters the document.
@DustinB3403 if you have them filtered down and want to cut/paste to another tab, you can select "visible cells only" by going to Edit / Go To... / Special... and select "visible cells only" to cut/paste just those rows visible in your selection.
That is why I tell people the policy is to reboot every night before you leave for the day. Most people do... some don't. This is the exact reason why this is the policy.
Yup, I agree, end of day reboots are the smartest if you can get people to do it.
Most of our people do - the few (really the one) who doesn't is also the one in charge. I can't make them.
Sure you can. If it is company policy, you simply create a schedule task to reboot machines.
LOL - You're on a roll today!
Just stop covering up bad behavior.
You, and others make it sound like I have a choice here - I only have two choices, perhaps three - 1) quit
2) according to you all ignore her
3) just stop talking to you all about trying to find solutions to provide to attempt to fix things.
No, you are missing the one thing we all recommend...
The CTJ talk. The talk where you give her the options and make her choose. You don't make up the options, you just enumerate the ones that exist.
No one has suggested any of the things you think we are recommending and missing the one choice we almost all agree on.
Can you spell out those options, apparently I've missed them.. .I feel like I've already gave her said options.. and she chose the one not on the table - to do nothing and still complain about it.
At which point, my option option is to basically ignore her - stop caring, whatever you want to call it, it's basically the same thing.
You can come up with the range of known options. Examples:
Use Google Apps and live with their save mechanism.
Use local Excel and live with it's save options, either auto or off.
Use Excel online and live with its save options.
Use a different application, like OnlyOffice.
Use Excel with auto save but get a "save all changes" storage system like Exablox
Tell her what is possible, that's your job. Afix prices and info to each. Then make her decide. Then any complaints you just tell her "hey, talk to the person who made this decision... you".
If you learn a language just to do this, Python would be my recommendation. Specifically well suited to learning, good for doing small scripts of this nature and good for list processing like this. It's just a good fit. But yeah, if you know some other language already, definitely go with that.
I dislike any whitespace delineated language.
I do hate that aspect of it, very Fortrany, but it does make readability a clearer priority for the newbies and can have benefits, especially when working in teams of non-full time programmers.
Creating a new document made a difference. I've known that I needed / WANTED to recreate many of the forms and such we have for HR and the departments. A vacation request was created in WORD and dumped to PDF, which forces a person to use a pen to complete it.
A form would be better... Especailly now with the options of OneDrive and Sharepoint....
