# Create Spreadsheet Where First Page Allows To Input Number Of Teams?

Apr 24, 2014

What i'm looking to do is create a spreadsheet where the first page allows me to input the number of teams in the group.The teams cannot play others in the group except the ones they are paired with. eg. "Enter number of team pairs in set" (in this case 4)

Team 1a vs Team 1b
Team 2a vs Team 2b
Team 3a vs Team 3b
Team 4a vs Team 4b

After number of teams in set is established click a start button on the first tab of the spreadsheet.

this auto generates a new tab with all the possible win/loss combinations of 4 team pairs.

if the number of teams on Tab 1 is changed (say to 6) and the start button is clicked, another new tab is generated with all possible win loss combinations of a 6 team set.

remember 1a vs 1b can only be win or lose and the win lose combinations are for the set of 4 matches ( or more matches if specified on the first tab and clicked).

if you put 7 in for the number of team pairs then it would be win loss combos for 7 pairs of teams.

## Auto Page Number Tabs In A Spreadsheet

Dec 3, 2007

I am interested in printing an entire workbook in one shot with multiple tabs, where each tab is one page. I would like to print the tabs such that the first tab has the number '1' in the footer, the second tab has '2' etc. And I don't want to go into each tab and type the number in the footer.

Does anyone know how to easily make this happen?

## Create A Cell That Allows The User To Input A Number

Jul 30, 2009

I am working on a spreadsheet and would like to create a cell that allows the user to input a number (1 to 5) which will then equate to a percentage(%). I would then like this to deduct that percentage from a total number...

To try and explain this.. Should the user input 1 into the cell, this would then equate to 3% - this would then deduct from a total that percentage. Input 2 = 5% etc..

## Showing Current Page Number And Total Page Number In Entire Workbook?

Nov 14, 2013

In my header I am trying to show the current page number and the total number of pages in the workbook. So if I have 10 pages in my workbook, page 5 would read "5 of 10".

I have this in my header "&[Page] of &[Pages]". All worksheets with 1 page read "1 of 1" and worksheets with 2 pages read "1 of 2" on the first page and "2 of 2" on the second page.

## Create A Spreadsheet That Will Automatically Increase The Work Order Number By 1?

Jun 20, 2014

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will automatically increase the work order number by 1. The cell will always be in the same place. The idea is that when the file is opened it populates the number. After being closed and reopened the number will be 1 higher than the previous.

The page will reused by various people to create and print work requests for my mechanics, I want it to assign the W/O automatically.

## Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*\$H10))/\$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

## Input Prompt Page

Sep 10, 2008

I have eventually got my Worksheet up and running but now im trying to make things a little easier to complete. The plan is when the Engineer is on site he has to open the Excel sheet to check the tests he has to complete and then mark the results. this is fine but for vaildation he has to sign everthing etc... i made it easier so they only had to fill in one box and it would complete the rest but this seems to get missed more often than not.

SOOO

i want a Screen to pop up when some one opens my excel that says Enter name and contact details. then they submit this which updates the spread sheet with this information and then the engineer can continue as normal.

## Page Break By Asking The Input File For Page Break To Be Done

Dec 9, 2008

The code which you provided works fine no problem for a page break. I need to run the macro for the page break by asking the input file for page break to be done.

For Example, If excel filename "A" contain the code which you have given need to ask to input the filename "B" and process need to be done in file "B".

I have added some code to your code which you provided but it gives error message "1004" "Method 'Range' of object '_Application' failed" at following line :

Set rng = oExcel.Range(Cells(2, 2), Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp))

## Generate Multiple Sheets From Input Page?

Jun 12, 2014

I've been using excel sheets to create reports for clients based on various sized samples of bars (I'm a test engineer). The sheets are essentially the same format though information will vary (such as bar type, diameter, etc.) I've been working on automating these sheets so that I don't need so many template-like tabs (currently I have a workbook for each client setup with 5-20 different sheets just in case the client sends in those bars! Half of the sheets stay blank and it can be confusing/cluttered).

Here's what I want to do: Have one page or popup window where I can input the information (job number, bar size, bar type, etc.) press the magic button and have it spit out a new sheet with that info added into the template. Is this doable?? I've never used macros before but I'm assuming I'll need to, which is fine, how that works.

## Data Validation Input Message - Always In The Same Area Of The Page

Apr 21, 2009

I have multiple data validations with input messages. For the new user, this is handy, but for the person that does this a lot, they get in the way. When I open the sheet, I can move one message to the side of the page and the rest of them come up at the same spot but when I save, exit, and reopen, the message comes up beside the cell and I would like it to always stay to the side of the page.

## Printing Each Spreadsheet Row On A Separate Page

Mar 29, 2007

I am trying to take a spreadsheet and have each row print on a seperate page - without having to do the print area thing on each row. Is there a way to automate this process?

## Lookup Make (on Another Page Of That File) Where I Input The Month And Date

May 31, 2009

My table is the equation of time (EoT) (sundialist's jargon). It shows each day of the year if the sun is running fast or slow according to the clock. I need to make (on another page of that file) where I input the month and date. It will then till me the time it is fast or slow

## Entering Specific Number To Effect Number Section On Another Page

Jan 8, 2014

I am working on a concrete pour summary, I would like to have the specific codes on each tab be affected from one summary page. So when I enter a certain number on sheet 1 , it will affect that same number section that is on a different sheet. It will be adding a certain amount to that code section every time its entered. What functions need to be used to make this work..?

## Input Box Allow To Input The Column Number

Dec 5, 2007

I want to create an input box that will allow you to input the column number it should start in... so instead of it being fixed at A, you can choose column B, C, D all the way to the end if you like.

Sub SplitSheetsNoDelete1()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Lmainsheet As String
Dim Lrow As Integer
Dim lcontinue As Boolean

Dim LColamaster As String
Dim lcolatest As String

'Retrieve name of sheet that contains the data
Lmainsheet = ActiveSheet.Name

'Initialize variables
lcontinue = True
Lrow = 2.....................................

## How To Print Multiple Pages Of Single Page Spreadsheet With Unique Invoice Numbers

Nov 12, 2012

I have a single page spreadsheet. I want to print multiple copies and have a unique invoice number on each page printed in cell O1. I don't want to just send it to the printer as individual print jobs. I would like to send it to print as a pdf in a single 100 page document or if not a pdf then just as a multiple page document.

For example first print run would start at number 1001 and last numbered page is 1101.

## Create Conditional Page Breaks

Jul 8, 2006

I have the following code that I am using to create conditional page breaks. It works sporadically. It will work on the data I used when i set up the code. It will sometimes work on smaller amounts of data. It will sometimes insert the page breaks but then error out at line: ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks.Add Before:= Cells(row_index + 1, "D"). I do not understand this code entirely as a i am novice VB user. Once I get this code to work, I'd love to imrove it so that the page breaks ends when there is no data in last row or last column.

Sub PageBreak()
Dim lastrow As Long
Dim row_index As Long
lastrow = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
For row_index = lastrow - 1 To 2 Step -1
If Cells(row_index, "D").Value <> "" Then
'insert page breaks ever time value in column D changes
If IsNumeric(Cells(row_index, "D").Value) Then
If Cells(row_index, "D").Value <> Cells(row_index + 1, "D").Value Then
End If
End If
End If
Next

## Create New Page In Multipage Form

Feb 13, 2007

I have a UserForm with a MultiPage form on it. Page1 is a totals page with 3 TextBoxes. Page 2 and counting are item pages. Each page also has 3 TextBoxes (nutrients for that item).

Purpose is to add all of the values in the first TextBox on pages 2 + and place the total into the first TextBox on page 1. Repeat this for the other two TextBoxes.

The problem is that I have no way of knowing how many pages I will need!

Is there a way to add a new page to the MultiPage and copy all of the formatting and controls from the formerly last page on to it? I would like to do this with an "Add" button.

## Protect Some Cells Of A Spreadsheet From User Input (by Typing Only),

Mar 15, 2009

Is there a way to protect some cells of a spreadsheet from user input (by typing only), yet letting button controls and VBA macros modify the values of those cells?

I need to prevent users from accidentally deleting formulas or values generated by VBA macros or controls, although they may delete values in some cells.

## Create A Button Which Moves The User To Next Page

Sep 4, 2009

I wish to create a button which will allow the user to goto the page in my spreadsheet.

I no i can use macros or hyperlinks to do but i can only use this button once for it to work. I want to cut and paste the button to save time.

## Dashboard - Create Full Page Chart

## Excel 2013 :: Using Barcode Scanner To Input Data Into Spreadsheet

Nov 14, 2013

I am using Excel 2013 and would like to input data into my spreadsheet using a barcode scanner. I've created some barcodes using an online barcode generator (Code 128-B). My barcodes are text as opposed to numeric. I initially tested it out using Access and it scanned the information just fine. However, when I try to scan in a code into Excel nothing happens, no error, no data, no nothing. Is there something I need to set in the options of Excel to recognize the barcode scanner as the input device? Or is there some other reason why the scanner might not be pulling in the data?

## Create Summary Page From Dynamic Database Pull

Mar 8, 2013

I am currently pulling information from a database into Excel. In column A is a list of dates that vary depending on how many days I decide to pull. On any given day there are options to which car will be driven and it is random and there are attributes associated with that drive such as below. If the car was not driven the data pull inputs "No Data" or a "0". On any given day up to three cars can be driven but it is still possible that only one will be driven. This is shown in the second table below. I'd like to be able to create an automated summary table such as the first table below. The summary table should be organized by date and show what cars were driven and their attributes. I know this seems simple but in reality I have six different cars and up to 10 attributes for each car and will be pulling months at a time. The only thought I have had is to do a for loop that checks every individual cell but I am not sure how to implement that.

Car
Miles
MPG
Car

## Create An Automatic Page Break At Each Value Change In Column A

Mar 18, 2009

I want to create an automatic page break at each value change in Column A, and also a page footer that "restarts" at each change in the same column.
For example, I would like a "Page x of y" footer, but I don't want "Page 1 of 3,500", I want "Page 1 of 3", etc...every time that Column A value changes.

## Page Break Preview It Shows The Page Numbers In The Centre Of The Page

Jun 9, 2009

When I view a sheet under Page Break Preview, it shows the Page numbers in the centre of the Page. While I am aware that it would not print the page number I was wondering if there is an option to remove/hide the page numbers.

## Arrange Golf Teams

Apr 21, 2009

I run a spreadsheet that manages golf tournaments. i have to group
the # of players evenly as possible on each hole once they are entered into the tournament. since the number of players varies from tournament to tournament the math gets complicated trying to get the groupings right. i can do the math on paper but do not know how to code the math in a macro. this would save me a ton of time if someone can figure this out. i have attached a sample .xls that includes all the info i could think of a person needs to see what is going on. If i am asking to much i understand and will remove the thread.

## Ranking Teams Scores

May 20, 2007

The team score is made of of 3 scores, the best from each age group. So the issue is to find the best (=lowest) for each club and for each age group. Add them & rank. Sometimes there may not be 3 scores to add up ( if they didn't have a team member in all three age groups or if their rider was eliminated. I'm easy about how to show who the team members are, could be as I've shown with the rider numbers in a cell or could be by "bolding" the score or anything else thats easy....

## VLOOKUP - Sheet That Will Keep Track Of Teams

Sep 27, 2009

I'm trying to have an excel sheet that will keep track of teams. In Col A will be the name, Col. B is a score, Col C is # of wins, Col D is # of loss's. The range for the list will be A3 to D153. Now starting in M3 I want to beable to list the persons name and have the sheet pull over the original score and place it in N3. Once I mark if they win or lose in O3. I would then like the sheet to if they win add 4 points or if they lose subtract 4 points from thier score in Col B. I have use the VLOOKUP to be able to pull the scores from col B, but I'm not sure how to change the scores.

## Randomly Assign Players To Teams

May 5, 2007

I am trying to assign a list of players onto teams but I need to distribute "skill" evenly to ensure teams are equally matched.

A statistician in the league suggested the best way to do this might be to sort the player list (descending) by the measure of "skill", then start assigning teams in blocks. If I have 40 players in the league / 4 teams = 10 players per team. I would randomize the numbers 1-4 (e.g. 3 1 4 2) and assign them to the first four players, randomize another set of 1-4, assign them to the next, and so on...

I could then sort the player list by “team assignment” column and have hypothetically equal skill on every team.

Couple of complications... number of players and teams might vary season to season. I will have to enter in number of teams and number of players at the beginning of each season along with a new list of their stats. Also, although I have a limited knowledge of Excel and VBA, none of the other coaches do so I want to make this as idiot proof as possible.

Using various macros (or functions) I found here I was able to randomize the first "block" of players but I cannot complete the randomizations for the remainder of the list. The only solution I have found would be to manually create an array using the “RandUnique” function over X (depending on number of teams) cells and then copy and paste this randomized subset down the rest of the player list.

See attached for sample data.

## Booking Schedule For Sport Teams

Dec 1, 2007

I am creating an hourly schedule (for a calendar year) that shows rental space occupied by 4 different groups (baseball, softball, soccer and football). I have created worksheets for each group and am entering proper names. I want to be able to search the worksheets for ANY text and return a value to a master sheet based on the group they belong to. If the cell is empty I want it to remain empty in the master sheet. Example: Ed Jones is entered in sheet 1, cell a15, and will show as "Baseball" on the master sheet cell a15, Mary Smith is entered in sheet 2, cell b16, and will show as Softball on the master sheet, cell b16, etc. The sheets are divided out into sports fields that they can rent. Multiple sports can rent the same fields so it is important that my master sheet show who is renting the field that day so it can be set up properly and they don't get double booked.
