Ubuntu :: Excel Data Shrinks To The Small Scale - Unreadable When Copy Data From Another Spreadsheet Onto The New One
Jan 17, 2011
I've been using Excel from OpenOffice with moderate success for the last year. Now I've just tried to open a new spreadsheet and I'm suddenly getting a highly condensed view. The cells are about 1mm X 4mm. If I expand them by selecting and dragging, then try to copy data from another spreadsheet onto the new one, the data shrinks to the small scale -- unreadable.
I have a spreadsheet which I update regularly. This involves downloading CSV files from a couple of websites, copying data from those files into an OO.org spreadsheet and copying formulas within the spreadsheet (the number of rows of data varies, so when the number of rows of data increases, I need to copy more lines of formulas).
I'd like to automate this process, so that with a single command I can get the data from the websites and feed it into my spreadsheet without having to copy rows of formulas. Although I've done lots of numerically-oriented programming, I have no idea how to undertake this automation task. I don't even know which tools I need to learn to do it.
i am using linux for the first time. i have been given a project which will fetch data from csd(comma separated form) and ll display on d screen. i want a c program for linux which ll do the above given task. moreover i want the parameter file(such as location of file, file name,etc..) as a different file. so that i can access this program on any computer.
I installed windows 7 over an existing xp partition and windows 7 made a 100 mb partition as some sort of windows swap space thing. This basically made my ubuntu partition unreadable, even with gparted. How to recover this data?
I think it is a bug that has been reported already. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ols/+bug/46966
Except I was using a cd instead. I was trying to install a different linux distro so I put all of my important documents on a disc. The disc shows it has contents before I try to open it but when I do the disc shows to be empty. I'm trying to open it in both windows 7 and linux ubuntu.I just need to get these documents back.
I have a Seagate 1TB external USB 2.0 hard disk which contains 740 GB of data. Everytime I connect, it shows the memory occupied and the remaining memory(190GB)..but when i try to access the folders inside they read empty... nothing is seen in the folders.. I am unable to read any data from it or write to it... Same is the case with Windows When I run self-test in Linux ubuntu I get
in order to visualize the mentor-student relations inside my fraternity, I'd like to create a genealogy graph from a Excel spreadsheet. This works way better than expected, but there is one final issue. To demonstrate, this is a smaller version of the graph:
It is ordered by year , while members are placed in the appropriate timeslot and are connected to show said relations. Unfortunately, as you can see, during a few years when the choosing of mentors was partly suspended due to historical reasons (WWII etc.), the members stack up to the right of the graph, widening it a lot. Is there a way to specify that they are supposed to be distributed among the members that are part of the structure in order to achieve minimum width?
Using Excel 2010 on a regular basis and have just had a new server installed at work. Since all 6 computers are joined on our network we seem to be having problems with opening Excel and when it does eventually open, it takes around 3-5 minutes to save a spreadsheet.
I have had trouble with my wine window. It was scaled too small and i cant reach the controls to scale it back. If i just grab the sides, it just glitches up.btw it works on different desktops, but i just want to use my own desktop because it gets a bit annoying when i have to switch user to another desktop just to use wine)
I am looking for a way to see if it is possible to copy the system state of a system to another system.Is it possible to simply move the folder structure over to another machine, and have it work? Do I need any special partitions for /var, /home, etc?My machine is dying slowly, and I really want the quickest way to migrate the system over to the new system.
I want to copy about 40GB - to a partiton. There are two hard drives in my box one won't boot but I can aaccess it and mount partitions and I aim to move data from it to a new bootable hard drive. Doing a simple cp copy command may not be the best way to copy and paste such a large chunk? Also I want to backup the data I plan to copy/paste using a USB hard drive to backup. But I could also paste data from the backup to the new drive instead of from old internal hd to new hd. - that's another option.
I have two HDDs in computer, one with ntfs and windows on it and second with btrfs. I want to get data on that btrfs disk. I boot with bootable USB stick with ubuntu on it but I found out that I cannot copy anzthing. I dont have permissions. How to change that. I am logged in as nobody here in USB stick, and files are probably locked as mz previous username when I create them.
I've got a CentOS 5.4 box and the following disks connected: # parted /dev/sda print Model: ATA WDC WD1600BEKT-0 (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 160GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 32.3kB 107MB 107MB primary ext3 boot 2 107MB 160GB 160GB primary lvm
# parted /dev/sdb print Model: ATA WDC WD1200BEVT-0 (scsi) Disk /dev/sdb: 120GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 32.3kB 107MB 107MB primary ext3 boot 2 107MB 120GB 120GB primary ext3 lvm the OS, data and programs are on /dev/sda.
I'd like to copy the full directories and files to the newly added /dev/sdb wich has, as you can see, less space. Also note that /dev/sda has only about 3.6Gigs uses, so it will no doubt easily go into /dev/sdb. How can I do the full copy, and yet make /dev/sdb bootable just like /dev/sda (just as if it was cloned by Ghost)? I've checked dd, but AFAIK, it needs that both source and target devices be the same in size.
I have a HDD that cannot be bootup (should be the boot file problem, I want to get back the data in it, so I plug it to another server and trying to copy the data from the failure HDD to this server. Now, the server is re-boot and in maintenance mode as the HDD cannot do the system check. when I try to copy data, it pops the server is read-only system. 1. How to let me write data to the server ; or 2. Let me boot up the server, then I will mount the HDD to it and copy the data to the server.
Right now I have a 320GB system drive and 3TB data drive. I want to add two more 3TB drives and do a software RAID5 3x3TB. Is that possible without losing the data that is already on the data drive?Just want to make sure before I bought the 2 two drives. Not looking for instructions on how to do it,but if you want to include some that would be great too Just making sure it will work.
I have my / partition on an SSD that I formatted in ext3 but I now realise that, in order to use TRIM, I need to be ext4. Can I use Partimage to make and image of the partition, format it (using GParted) and then restore the image? Basically, do Partimage files survive a filesystem change?
I currently have two hard drives, with my root partition configured in RAID0. I'd like to add two additional hard drives, and include them in my RAID0 array. I need to recreate the array to do this, so I'd like to copy everything off of the existing array, add the drives, build the new array, and copy everything back. I have an external hard drive with four times the capacity of my current array. What would be the best way to copy this data so that nothing is missed, so I can just copy everything back and boot back up? dd, image the entire root partition, mount it after creating the new array, copy everything back (at the filesystem level) dd, image the entire root partition, write it back out to the new array, I'm not sure how this would work, because the partition will be the wrong size, I don't know much about dd. rsync, just rsync everything on root over to the external something else? I plan on booting to a live CD and mounting my current array there, so I won't be working on a live filesystem.
When I used slackware 13.0 I installed wine 1.1.40 and then I installed an old program, PowerTAB. The font for the mf, mp, and other symbols was very small and unreadable. To solve this I put sylfaen.ttf in /home/darksaurian/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts and this magically fixed the problem. I don't know why or how I figured it out. But now with Slack 13.1 I do the exact same thing, same version of wine, and the font trick does nothing. The mf, mp symbols remain unchanged and unreadable.
I have a hard drive with a bad PCB board. It stays on when not under heavy load and it will restart if I copy too much data off it. So far I have had good luck doing folders under 500 MB in size if I copy one folder to my good hard drive, wait five minutes, copy another, etc.
If I mount the bad drive and try to copy a folder of several GBs in size it will start and then stop as the hard drive restarts. When I try to mount the drive again Linux says it can't read the superblock. I have several folders with over 30 GB of data in many different folders.
What I am looking for is a way of copying a folder in Linux such that the commands grab the whole folder in chunks with a timed break in-between.
I was using 9.10 Ubuntu and was going to update to 10.??. Being an intelligent person, I made four (4) backups of KMyMoney on different diskettes and thumb drives. Now, the problem, after reinstalling my O/S (new version) I reinstalled KMyMoney and found out that the newer version of KMM will not read the data I have backed up.What I need is a way to obtain an older copy of KMM so I can retrieve my data. Then I can update.
I am attempting to copy files from one server to an external USB drive on a second server. Both servers are running custom RedHat Linux, kernel 2.6. Both are setup as Check Point SecurePlatform (one is a log server and the other a management server). I am trying to archive files from one (HP DL380 G5) to the second (HP DL380 G6). I am not able to archive directly to the external usb drive when connected to the HP DL380 G5 (data gets corrupted and switches to read-only access). The external USB drive has no issues when connected to the HP DL380 G6 server, thus my reason for trying to copy the files across servers.
When I attempt to use scp to copy files between the server, I am prompted for the password. Once entered the debug shows the authentication is successful, but then no files are copied (see log below). I have tried searching for potential answers, but none have panned out. Unfortunately I can't yet post the actual scp debug log output as some of the text is viewed as a URL and not yet allowed for me. I have changed all the atsign symbols to '(a)' to avoid the URL inference.

I have a PC with OpenSuse 11.1. Beside root there are two other users on the system. Now I have installed a new PC with OpenSuse 11.2. Only one user is set up until now. I installed the hard disk from OpenSuse 11.1 into the new PC on IDE Primary Slave, because I wanted to copy some files from the old system. OpenSuse 11.2 has mounted the old disk automatically in /media/disk and /media/disk-1. The problem is that I can't find any files or directories from the users. I could find only one file from root in /media/disk-1/root/Desktop. Why can't I see the files? Does it have anything to do with UID or SUID?
