Activating VBA Code When Entering A Cell?

May 9, 2014

I am trying to write a small bit of VBA code, so that I can record the row and column of the active cell. I have got it working when I CHANGE the value of the cell, but I need to get the code to fire off when I ENTER the cell.

The code section is below:-

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal target As Range)
'Store the row and column into G1 and G2 for the drop down loading
Call RowNum(target)
End Sub


how I can do this, as I cannot find reference to a Worksheet_Enter function ?

VBA Activating Code On Mouse Hover

Apr 19, 2013

Is there any way I can activate a sub routine when the user passes the mouse cursor over an activeX object.

For example this activates code when the user interacts with an activeX scroll bar:

Private Sub ScrollBar2_gotfocus()
Dim A, B, C
If OLEObjects("checkbox1").Object.Value = False Then
B = Range("B4").Value
A = (100 - B) / 2
C = (100 - B) / 2
End If

IS there a "gotfocus" equivalent such that code will run if the user simply passes their mouse cursor over the scroll bar EVEN IF they dont click it?

Small Problem Activating Specific Cell Via VBA

Jan 2, 2007

Upon workbook open I have specified that I need a specific sheet & cell selected - so that the user can start typing as soon as the sheet is activated.

The cell is highlighted but I can not type into it unless I manually re-select it with the mouse or keyboard. Below is what i have attempted as well as a few other experiments. I even tried using the same code on sheets("ENTRY") using Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() - which works great as long as the workbook is already open but again not when freshly opening workbook -

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
If Range("E2") "" Then
'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "test"
End If
End Sub

Re-entering Cell Value

Dec 7, 2009

In some of my formulas, I need to re-enter the contents of the cell in order for a formula to compute.

For example, I am doing some math on a cell whose original contents are "10:21:00 AM" The formula returns a #NUM!. If I retype 10:21 in the cell and hit enter, the formula will now calculate properly. I have reformatted the entire column several times so that it is a custom hh:mm format. The original content also shows as time so I don't think that it is a formatting issue.

My worksheet has about 20,000 rows and this only happens for about 100 of the rows. It is pretty time consuming to manually go fix each one. Any ideas what is going on here?

Entering Data In A Cell

Jan 5, 2007

Earlier this morning I had a telephone call from a customer who uses a spreadsheet I created.

She explained that once she'd entered information into a cell [and clicked elsewhere] she couldn't then add to the former; rather, she had to click on the cell and type it all out again.

I assumed that, as an inexperienced excel user, she was unware of either double-clicking the cell, or selecting and pressing F2. I explained these methods to her.

She later emailed me with this:

"Further to our phone conv this morning I have just tried double-clicking on cells but it deletes everything in the cell rather than lets you edit what is there F2 does the same thing. This applies to any cell, whether it is text, date or number."

I've been using excel for a while now, and I've never come across such a thing before.

Has anyone else? Could it be to do with her own excel settings? (other customers have had no such problem)

Create A New Tab When Entering Value Into A Cell

Mar 16, 2007

What I'm trying to do is enter a value/text into a cell - say (A1). After I enter the value/text I would like to have a new tab populated with all the information on the current sheet and the tab name referencing cell A1. I tried running a few different scenarios using macros and have come up short. I want to be able to do this multiple times with different values/text. For example if I enter B606123 into cell A1 I want a tab to be created named B606123. Then later I might want to add B606096 and have that created without effecting B606123.

Entering Current Folder Into A Cell

Oct 29, 2013

I have been looking for a way to enter the folder where the excel file is located into a cell.

I have seen you can add the whole path (=CELL("filename") ), however I am only wanting the 'last' folder it is in. For Example:

C:docsfolderdataClass D4John WayneProfile.xlsx

Would enter "John Wayne" into cell. The cell is namely the "name" cell.

I work in a school and a teacher is wanting a couple of different excel files for each student (600 students) I am hoping that I can put the files in a folder with the students name as the folder. That way at least its only 600 names and not 600x7! The other details are similar on a lot of the files such as class (this is also one of the folders in the path).

Entering Text In A Locked Cell

May 29, 2014

I have worksheet that contain values in column E and G and the total in column K. E and G are unlocked for manual input and column K contains the formula for the total and is locked. From time to time a certain row will not be applicable and before I started locking the cells in column K i would just put "not applicable". Now that it's lock I can't do that. My only option now is to put O in column E and G but I would rather put "not applicable" in column K. Is there a way around this. I was thinking of something along the line of a macro that would unlock the worksheet input the text and re lock it. The macro would have to lunch when a locked cell is selected or have a button that would launch the macro an would prompt for which cell the text would be entered. Is this possible.

Entering Multiple Cell Formulas?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a requirement to enter 25 formulas into 25 different cells. The formula is this:


The only thing that changes is the cell reference at the end which goes up in increments of 20,000, i.e. R20000, R40000, R60000, etc.

I have this set up and it works fine. My question is whether there is another quicker way rather than have the above code repeated 25 times?

Prevent Someone From Entering A Formula In A Cell

May 18, 2007

I'm creating a maths workbook in Excel. I want the user to workout the answer in his/her head and enter the answer into Excel. The only problem is, of course, that there is nothing stopping a user from simply typing a formula to obtain the answer! I have tried all data validation, apart from Custom which I can't figure out. Is there a way to prevent a user entering a formula on a worksheet?

Cell Auto-lock After Entering Time

Sep 16, 2013

I have created a time sheet and I would like to know if there is a way to auto-lock cells after time is entered so that it cannot be changed. As of right now I have employees enter the time by using Shift+Ctrl+;, so the exact time is recorded, however employees can write in whatever time they want. so I guess what I want to do is 2 things:

1- can the cell be formatted to only accept Shift+Ctrl+;, so that the exact time is entered in the cell and prevent employees from entering times they were not at work?


2- can the cell auto-lock after Shift+Ctrl+; is entered so that they can't modify the time sheet the next day if they arrived earlier than the day before?

Entering Data In 1st Blank Cell In Specific Row

Mar 5, 2014

I have created a form where a date and remark is added every few days. I am using Phone Number as the base of VLookup. I want a code so that the date and remark which is entered in a Text Box, is stored in the first available blank cell pertaining to that employee. I want the first date and remark to be under "Date 1" and "Remark 1".

Thereafter, if another remark is subsequently added for that employee, the form would ask to enter his phone number to identify which employee the remark pertains to. Then the Text Box where remark is entered should be stored under "Remark 1" if there has been no remark before, "Remark 2" if "Remark 1" already exists, "Remark 3" if "Remark 2" already exists and so on.

I do not want to enter it in a new row. I want to enter the remark in the next blank cell of the row which matches the employee Phone Number.
