Macro Wait While Filling In Auto-generated Form

Nov 18, 2008

when I run a macro, it takes me to a different sheet, clicks on a cell, and then goes to data--> form to automatically generate a form so I can make a new entry. I want the macro to wait until I have completed the form, and on completion to do something else. I'd prefer it if I could indicate completion of the firm by just a keystroke, but a mouse click will do as well.

Auto-export Worksheet To Form Fillable PDF Using Macro Button?

Jan 25, 2014

I've created a worksheet that allows my team to build an order for a customer. I've created a PDF form with blanks so they can fill in the necessary values in the correct fields ie. Tariff Name, Handset Name, Minutes etc.

I'm hoping to create a macro button that will export all the the data needed and auto fill the PDF form to save time.

So far I've added a button with the following code

Sub CopyData()
Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
End Sub

This simply adds all the data needed onto a separate sheet ready to be exported as a csv.

I'm in need of the rest of the code to export/import Sheet1 into my fillable form.

So far attempts to export to .csv have turned my entire worksheet into a .csv file or caused errors within the code.

I've attached a sample of my Workbook and PDF form below.

Copy Specific Data From Monthly Auto Generated Workbook To Master Sheet

Mar 26, 2014

I get this monthly report that has 5 tabs in it. The last tab, ALL_FAILURES_1mon, is a list of part and serial numbers that have failed that month. From that tab I copy the information into a master workbook that houses all the failures broken up by part number, each part number is a separate tab. I am wondering if there is a way to search in the "Monthly_Report" document for all rows containing the part number, 07X-000-ZZZ" and copy the entire row into the master fails list. I have attached a couple examples with sensitive information blocked out.

What I need is for when the macro is run, it will search "Monthly_Report.xlsx" ALL_FAILURES_1mon tab, for "07X-000-ZZZ" and copy all rows containing the part number and paste them in the next blank row of "Master_Fails_List" in appropriate tab.

*NOTE*I have attached both examples however my "Monthly_Report" document was too large so I had to upload it as a .xlsb but the original is .xlsx

Pause Macro And Wait For User To Click On Cell To Resume Macro?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.

What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.

Auto-Populate Order Form From Storeroom Count Form

Jun 17, 2014

I have a spreadsheet I use to keep track of weekly sales patterns and use for estimating the amount of a product I would need to order taking into account what I would expect to sell in a given week and what stock I have at present. On the example I've attached, I show where I enter my storeroom count figures, which are organised by supplier and the position in which a particular product appears on the supplier's order form. I have a page which lists the orders by suppliers and which are used to place the orders by e-mail or telephone.

At present I have each supplier section of the order form directly linked to a cell on the storeroom count as per columns K to M on the attached file. However, this means that as products are de-listed by suppliers and extra products become available, I have to edit the formula in each cell as the products now appear in a different position on the storeroom count and may otherwise end up on the order form for a different supplier. I would like to set it up so that I just have to select the supplier name and the table below will automatically fill with the required info, in order of the position they appear on the supplier's form. I'm struggling to combine vlookup and hlookup. Is there a way to do it or do I need to rethink?

Auto Expand A Spreadsheet When Filling It In?

Nov 21, 2013

I've created a spreadsheet in which I want a blank row added when a previous row is filled in any of the boxes. I've used VBA code to insert a row but it just inserts a row in which all the cells are unmerged. I want a blank row the same as the ones we're filling so the document auto expands and there's always a blank row available to fill.

Paste Formulas Without Auto Filling

Sep 28, 2009

Is it possible to disable the auto filling, when copy/pasting formulas?

I have a range of formulas, which I want to copy/paste, and I want the pasted formulas to be the exact same as the copied.

Is this possible? I would prefer not having to use $ on all formulas.

Auto Filling Conditional Formatting?

Apr 9, 2013

I have created a couple of conditional formatting rules on the first row that fill the whole row of the table based on whether there a number in one cell or another. (Fill the whole row green if cell E3 has a number in it, or fill the whole row red if Cell F3 has a number in it).

I want to apply this to each row of the sheet but when I auto fill it down, the conditional formats fill but the reference cells stay as E3 and F3. This is causing the entire table to be filled instead of just the individual rows.

I don't want to have to put in conditional formatting rules manually for each row. Is there a way to auto fill down with the reference cells changing to suit each row like a normal formula would?

Auto-Filling Cells Horizontally

Feb 14, 2012

I want to be able to fill with the formula not modified (e.g., I do not want to use INDIRECT, OFFSET, etc.)

In Cell P3, I have the function "=IF(ISBLANK(C25),"",C25)."

I need to fill the next cells (horizontally) so that this increments numerically,

i.e., in Cell Q3, the function should read "=IF(ISBLANK(C26),"",C26)."

Is this possible without manually typing, and without having to modify the actual functions?

Make Macro Wait For Process To Complete

Feb 4, 2010

I'm using a pre-made spreadsheet from my stock broker (Interactive Brokers) that retrieves and displays real-time quotes, and allows one to retrieve historical stock data, among other things. I've created a little macro within it to try and automate some common tasks I do everyday - basically I want to retrieve a year of daily stock quotes for "stock 1" from IB's servers, then have the macro wait for the retrieval to be done and written to the spreadsheet (takes anywhere between 10 and 30 secs). After that's all done, then I want to do the same for "stock 2". Then when that's done, the macro proceeds to go ahead and do some calcs on stock1 and stock2. The problem is after my stock1 data request, the macro just keep on trucking through to the next commands while stock1's data retrival is still going on.

so things are getting all balled up. How can I get my macro to wait until stock1's data retrieval is all done?

Please Wait Message For Long Running Macro

Aug 21, 2006

When clicking the button on my userform, it goes through a quite complex process of changing the views in several pivot tables that are linked to an "report" sheet, which has all the figures the user needs in a neat format.

Changing these pivot tables takes up to a minute, so I wanted a userform, called "frmwait", to pop when clicking the command button. It would say "Generating Your Report - Please Wait". At the same time, the initial userform, which is called "frmroutedashboard", would be hidden.

This does not happen - the "frmwait" userform shows, however the "frmroutedashboard" does not hide.

Is this because the code I composed uses the values on the "frmroutedashboard" to generate the view, and it cannot hide until the report is completed? If so, there must be a way around this. Anyone know how?

The initial code so far looks like this:

Application.Cursor = xlWait
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
Application.StatusBar = "Updating Route Dashboard..."

I thought if it looked like this, it would be sufficient. Unfortunately, the file is too large to attach, so I hope the code suffices.

Application.Cursor = xlWait
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
Application.StatusBar = "Updating Route Dashboard..."

Auto Filling The Date Across 31 Worksheets Using Format

May 7, 2014

I have created a workbook with 31 worksheets (they represent each day of the month). I'd like to know how I can auto fill the date in cell A1 across the 31 worksheets without having to type in each day myself. I need the date format to look like this: Wednesday 7th May 2014

In other words, cell A1 in worksheet 1 needs to say Thursday 1st May 2014, cell A1 in worksheet 2 needs to say Friday 2nd May 2014, cell A1 in worksheet 3 needs to say Saturday 4th May 2014 and so on for the remainder of the worksheets for that month.

Data Validation And Auto Filling Cells

Sep 26, 2009

Starting to struggle a bit here. Trying to create a user form, with help from this website I was able to create 2 dropdown lists based on data validation and information from another sheet in the same workbook. I have one cell B7 that uses data validation and sheet "Eq List" to create a drop down list of departments that the user can select from. Once B7 is filled in, it creates the 2nd dropdown list in B9 so the user can pick "Equip Desc".

Where I am trying to fill B11 which should automatically give me back the Mach ID that is related to B7 & B9. Am I going about this the right way? I have ttached a sample file to make it easier to understand.

Auto Filling Annual Leave Calendar

Feb 28, 2013

I've put together an annual leave tracker for the department and am trying to make it as automated as possible. It currently consists of two sheets, 'Leave Applications' and 'Leave Tracker 13'.

If you look at the 'Leave Applications' sheet, I wish to be able to take this data to fill the calendar on 'Leave Tracker 13' with either AL or HL to demonstrate whether the day is annual leave or half day leave. This only wants to happen if the leave has been accepted, represented by an 'A' on the 'Leave Applications' sheet. The calendar obviously doesn't have any dates in the cells but I've got around this when it comes to shading in weekends by concatenating the date above and to the left of the cells and assume I must be able to do the same for populating it.

It's also complicated by the 'Leave Applications' consisting of multiple members of staff, though this may be ordered by date.

Excel 2007 :: Does Macro Wait Until Pivot Completes Refresh?

Feb 4, 2013

I am using Excel 2007.

I have some pivot tables that have the data source in another workbook. I didn't create any external data connections. When I created the first pivot table, I just selected the range from that other workbook. Most of the other pivot tables were copied and modified accordingly, so they should have the same pivot cache.

I have created a macro that basically refreshes all data, using the Workbook.RefreshAll command, then copy/pastes values and then deletes the pivots so that I can send it via e-mail without problems. The macro seems to work fine.
The QUESTION relates to the fact that I am afraid VBA won't wait for the refresh to complete before starting to copy/paste values.

The PivotCache.BackgroundQuery = False solution doesn't work. I get 10004 error. Also, there are no data connections visible in the Data > Connections. I guess that, because of this, "Properties" is greyed out in the Data tab and also "Connection Properties" under Pivot Table Tools > Options > Change Source Data is greyed out. This way, I cannot uncheck the "Enable background refresh" box.

I could just tick the "Refresh when opening the file" in Pivot Table options, but if I open the file without first opening the workbook with the raw data, refresh takes very long.

I have tried to measure time difference between the RefreshAll command and a simple Range("C3").Select command. There is a time difference, but I'm still not 100% sure that VBA waits for refresh to complete before continuing.

Do Until Application.CalculationState = xlDone

Create a smart macro which will remove all references to the #REF! which is left when rows are deleted. It would have to remove all trace of it from any equation it may be in (i.e. if it was in an averaging equation, it would need to remove the preceeding comma as well:

Hide Column On Each Worksheet Generated By Macro

Mar 16, 2009

I have a macro that looks at a list of students and the school they attend, and then creates an individual worksheet for each school containing only their students. I want to hide Column B on each of those worksheets. This seems like it should be easy, but it is not working.

When I leave it as is pasted below, Column B does not get hidden.

When I change it to Sheets(school.Value).Columns("B").Select I get an error message stating "Select method of Range class failed."

Sub ExtractSchools()
Dim wsTransfer As Worksheet 'worksheet with transferred data from registrations wrkbk
Dim wsList As Worksheet 'worksheet with list of students

Dim school As Range
Dim rowNum As Integer
Set wsTransfer = Sheets("Transfer")

Macro-generated Values Not Updating Charts And Sums

Jul 5, 2006

The question is pretty much described in the post title. Here is the situation:
I have a workbook that has data plugged into it manually throughout many sheets, and at the end there are a few sheets with different graphs and charts that are generated by a macro. This macros works perfectly - all the data is accurate and the figures are perfect when compared with a manual count. The problem I have is that the cells where the macro puts the summed values are in a chart that is supposed to create a bar graph. Normally, if I change a value that a bar graph uses I see the bar graph change - but that does not happen with the cells that have values placed in them by the macro. I also have a section that sums the values in the chart to make sure it's running right, and these values do not update automatically as well. The cells have the formula =SUM(B3:B12) and so on, in them. Right now, every time that I run the macro I need to go into the cell with the formula, hit 'enter', and then it does the summation. Is there a way to correct this problem, or is this something that is part of excel?

Macro That Copies Unpredictable Generated Range So Can Paste In Other Programs

Apr 29, 2014

I have a macro that copies rows from my DAILY OCCURENCE sheet that have a YES in them to my MANAGER SUMMARY SHEET and G1 is selected which has a hyperlink that opens a new email with the manager's email address and Subject pre-assigned.

I then have to manually go back to the newly generated summary sheet and select the cells and paste them into the email that was just opened.

Is there a way that the generated rows are already copied in memory and all i have to do is CTRL+V into the new email, or even better, the cells are pasted in the email automatically? So basically either the information being copied over stays in memory, or after it is copied into the summary sheet it is copied again. I just dont know how to copy unpredictable ranges generated by macros.

The code that generates my summary sheet for my manager is below.

Auto Close Workbook After Showing Form For 30 Seconds

Mar 24, 2007

I have the following code that displays a form at a user defined time and if the user does not press "Stop" then the workbook saves and closes. The user can press stop then the workbook remains open.

Here is what I have where:
Admin_Auto_Shutdown = Yes or No
Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time = 3:34pm or user defined time (This doesn't seem to work??)

'Auto Shutdown CloseandSave
If UCase(wb.Worksheets("Admin"). Range("Admin_Auto_Shutdown").Value) = "YES" Then
Application .OnTime TimeValue("Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time"), "AutoShutdown"
End If

Sub AutoShutdown()

Application.OnTime TimeValue("Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time"), "AutoShutdown"


End Sub

Now, my question is about a timer that I can show on a form. When the form is displayed I would like to give the user 30 seconds to press stop (and keep the workbook open) or to press proceed and save and close or to not do anything and the workbook would close and save when the timer reaches zero.

Code for user form which is missing most everything...

Private Sub Halt_Click()
'If user whats to continue without closing
End Sub

Private Sub Proceed_Click()
'If user whats to save and close


How do I add a timer to this code where it will run this at the end of the timer?


Application.DisplayAlerts = False
With ThisWorkbook
.Saved = True
End With
