Hi. I am a new user of Kutools and while it seems pretty good, when I split data into multiple worksheets, it's deleting all my subtotals. If it doesn't delete my subtotals, it creates a separate worksheet for them - even when I have renamed all the subtotals so that they are only keeping the name of the group. For example, I have a list of names (Aisling is one of the names). At the end of the group for Aisling, it creates a new row called "Aisling Total". I delete the " Total" from the document, but it still split the sheet with duplicate sheets for the totals rows. I've tried copying and pasting in the values of the numbers instead of the actual subtotals and it is still creating duplicate worksheets. Is there any way around this, or is there a way to select multiple sheets and add in totals at the bottom of each table?

Lack of tools to help insert a certain number of rows and new data into newly inserted rows on multiple sheets in a worksheet

Hi,

Thank you for your suggestion regarding Kutools for Excel.

Based on your message, it sounds like you are seeking a feature that enables you to:

1. Insert a specified number of rows across multiple sheets within a single workbook.
2. Automatically populate these newly inserted rows with data.
I have forwarded your request to our development team for consideration in future updates. We appreciate your input as it helps us continuously improve our tools and better meet the needs of our users.

Thank you for helping us enhance our product.

When using the Send Email function, the Insert Placeholder function is not working. Have others experienced this issue? How have you resolved?

Is it possible to save complex formulas I use often somewhere in KuTools?
i.e.: I have several instances where multiple formulas with nested functions (both built-in & KuTools), that I use in multiple workbooks.
Currently, I have them either in a template file, or in a text file, but was wondering if there was a place to save something like this to rerun later?

Merging two excel worksheets with matching headers to 1 file. but it's not workng and I am getting remarks of?:

"Microsoft Excel cannot access the file 'https://filepath/marketingtest.xlsx'. There are several possible reasons:

• The file name or path does not exist.
• The file is being used by another program.
• The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook"

Hi,

Are these files located on a SharePoint server? Our feature currently does not support files on this network path. You can install the latest version of Kutools for Excel and copy the relevant files to your local machine for operation.
We will consider enhancing our features in future versions to support more file paths. Thank you very much for your feedback.

How do I change the location of the automatically created

C:\Users\YOUR-USER-NAME\Documents\Kutools for Excel

folder? Or how do I prevent Kutools from ever creating it?


I keep deleting that folder but it keeps coming back whenever I re-open Excel. I do not wish for any program to clutter my Documents folder
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Hi,

There is no option to change the path to this folder. This folder is used to save some temporary data while using Kutools, so there is no way to stop it from being generated, sorry about that.
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Why not put it [i.e. hide it] at

C:\Users\YOUR-USER-NAME\AppData\Roaming\Kutools for Excel

?

Will you change it add / or an option for letting the user choose where that folder should be created?


And also: please stop deleting this follow-up post of mine and just produce some answer to it, because trying to shush me makes you look very unprofessional - and you never know how big YouTube channel a user reporting an issue might have

Will you then add an option for letting the user choose where that folder should be created?

Why did not you put it [i.e. hide it]

C:\Users\YOUR-USER-NAME\AppData\Roaming\Kutools for Excel

in the first place?

Hi - just purchased. Any chance you could add time to the Super Filter? I need to filter date to weekdays only (which I can do), but also time to just business hours (I can't see a way). Ideally I would love to save these filters as a scenario.

Hi,
I'm a happy Kutools user, but I'm struggling with the 'cloud-side' of it...
For example, I use the following formula =COUNTBYCELLCOLOR(B835:O846;L848)/2
This works fine as long as I'm working in Excel itself, but I save this file on my OneDrive, and when opening from there this formula doesn't work.
Then I get the ###signs and a message that external data connections are disabled.
I'm not familiar with workbook connections etc.
Any help is welcome, thanks a lot,
Igor

Hi Igor D.,

Thank you for your feedback. If your workbook is shared and opened by someone without Kutools for Excel installed, the =COUNTBYCELLCOLOR formula will not work, as Kutools functions require the add-in to be present.

I am trying to set up and invoicing sheet. For this I need to put in a business name into one cell and the billing rate per hour into another cell using a drop-down list. Essentially I click on a selection and 2 fields fill. I know it should be easy but???????
