Cells To Align To Center/left/right
Here's a weird one: I can't get some of my cells to align to center/left/right. Both the buttons on the toolbar and Format->Cells->Alignment won't work. The kicker is that other cells on the same sheet will center/left/right just fine. Is there some kind of formatting protection I inadvertently set?
fyi, Excel 2003 on XP Pro, all fully updated.
Macro To Center The Text
I have a macro that output a month based upon a date that has been entered in a row on my spreadsheet. I want the macro to center the text but im not sure of the syntax, the macro code is below:
(Userform) Textbox, Center Text Vertically?
We can center horizontally with TextAlign (Left, right or center). Can we center text in a textbox on a userform vertically? I am working with multiple fonts, when a user selects a font I attempt to format a textbox as a display to show what is being created (Best WYSIWYG as I can). I have this particular font that is just ugly but is required. My textbox is set for a 12 point font but the displayed characters partially appear below the lower portion of the textbox. Think of cutting off about 1/3 of the bottom of all text in the textbox.
In my textbox it seems like the text could be moved up (some type of top margin?). All other fonts appear to display in the textbox vertically central, so I believe its the particular font selected causing the as displayed anomaly.
Find Last Used Cell And Align All Numbers In Same Row
Example Table A:
*ABCDEFGHIJKL1No. 1No. 2No. 3No. 4No. 5No. 6No. 7No. 8No. 9No. 10No. 10No. 10221418269124333324171165141728884321000125067775100860615906015712170712180910
Result Table B:
*ABCDEFGHIJKL1No. 1No. 2No. 3No. 4No. 5No. 6No. 7No. 8No. 9No. 10No. 10No. 10263214854241121253210609433610178011412288370151076151767788070121206015907910
What i want here is to align all the numbers considering the last used cell. In example table a; the last number is 0 (F8). Considering that, in the Result table B all the numbers are aligned in row 8 from the bottom to top giving an equal alignment to the table.
UNMERGE And CENTER ACROSS
"Get rid of merged cells!"
You can read it often on this Board.
I will not open any debate on the subject, but just want to provide a solution to get rid of them automatically. Anybody who likes can refer to this thread.
This code is changing layout.
1. Could take a while when you have sheets with large used range or a lot of merged cells. You can follow the status and can interrupt it if you want.
2. Save before executing. I'm quite sure it works good, but the result might be something else then you had in mind, especially when you are quite new to this.

Move And Align Cells
I have a task that I need to perform every now and then. And even though I normally find my ways around in Excel, I can't find a working solution for this one.
I have a list of features that I need to match with another list and place them on the same rows in my sheet. The attached file contains 2 worksheets where "Before" shows my normal input, and "Wanted" shows what I need to do.
Cols A-E contains info for the first set of features, cols G and H is the cells I want to move. Please note that sometimes the G and H columns contains info that are not present in A-E, and then I need to move those features around as well. An example is present at the bottom of the "Wanted" sheet.
Align Data In Columns
This is a pretty simple request, but i need a macro to Find Column M's Last Entry and to copy down the 3 following columns down to the value.
I need it to be dynamic in other words, The length of column M will vary depending on my file . If the macro knows Column M ends Here, then drags the boxes down starting from N3 to Q3 down to the last Entry in Column M.
Center Message In Msgbox
How can I get the message to display in the center of the display box?
If i < 3 Then If MsgBox(Tries - i & " Tries Remaining." & vbLf & vbLf & " Try Again?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then Exit For
As you can see the "try again?" & the text "Tries Remaining"works fine by entering spaces, but the number that is suppose to display with "Tries Remaining" does NOT center. How can I get the number to display in the center along with the text?
This is the complete code.
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim i As Integer, Tries As Integer
Dim PassTry As String
Const Pass As String = "Password"
Dim storedPath As String
On Error Resume Next
storedPath = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PathCertString").Value
On Error GoTo 0..................
Formatting Center Header
I'm trying to find some code that will format the center header to Arial Bold, size 14.
Currently I have the center header populated with the cell value E9 using -
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterHeader = Range("E9").Value
I've been digging around on the internet, but can't figure out how to format the text automatically.
Center On Zoom In A Frame
I am developing a form for emergency dispatching. One of the features of this dispatch sheet is that there are several maps in it that open on a seperate form. The map form has 4 maps that are picture files in an image. these images are in a frame. The different images are selected using option buttons. Given the background above, my problem is this. I have code that zooms in 50% each time the Click event for the image is fired. wht i am trying to do is make the zoomed view center where i clicked. this is the code that i have so far but it doesn't work all that spectacular, the closer I zoom in the further out of center the place i clicked gets untill it is out of view.
Private Sub Layout_MouseMove(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
CurrentX = X
CurrentY = Y
Private Sub PlantLayout_Click()
If Frame1.Zoom < 400 Then Frame1.Zoom = Frame1.Zoom + 50
frmmap.Frame1.ScrollLeft = CurrentX - (Frame1.Width / 2)
frmmap.Frame1.ScrollTop = CurrentY - (Frame1.Height / 2)
Vba - Chart To Align Data Required
I am a PhD student and have a series of coordinates for various DNA sequences. I need to generate an excel chart which will show all the sequences aligned one on top of the other, not like a stacked bar, but where no gaps are found between the bars. So that they appear as if they have ‘fallen down’ as you would see with ‘Tetris’. This would end up with a bell shaped chart, rather than a messy chart. I need to do this to demonstrate which sections of the entire sequence appear more often. Can this be done using VBA or is there a way to modify a chart? I have no previous experience using VBA so I'm close to pulling my hair out.
Align Command Buttons On UserForm
I've fought with this issue off and on for some time now and decided it was time to come to you for help. In the attached workbook there is a UserForm with five (5) command buttons along the bottom of the UserForm. I'm familiar with making them the same size and aligning tops. What I'm struggling with is how to distribute them horizontally. That is, to get the same amount of "white space" between them.
Align Shapes No Overlap Or Gaps
I am trying to get two shapes to butt up to each other. Unfortunately the shapes either leave a small gap or a slight overlay. I have tried using Ctrl + arrow key to move in small increments, but that didn't work. I have also tried adjusting the width of the rows, but the rows jump backwards or forwards to a number instead of staying with the number I entered. I want to create a seamless shape out of many different shapes.
Pull Characters From Alpanumerics And Right Align
I am trying to create a data sheet to simplify the filling of corporate documents on our company computer systems. I have a working system, flawed, but working. What I want is to simplify it and correct some mistakes I made when I first made it. At the moment the priority is the field for our serial numbers. They vary from 1 to 10 digits in length with a alpha-numeric system. Some serial numbers even include hyphens, but the hyphens need to be removed for the forms. My system uses a modified form to allow for hyphens, but my boss wants them removed. ^^'
Anyways, the serial number of an item is entered into the data sheet field and my macro breaks down the serial number piece by piece. On the form the there are ten blocks for each digit of the serial number and I have coded the macro to put one digit per box. The trick is that the serial number must be right aligned and any empty fields must stay empty. This is where my request comes into play. I have already programmed the macro to do everything required except remove hyphens. The problem is that it is a REALLY long macro using If Then End statements to to compensate for the varying lengths of a serial number. Is there anyway to simplify this task?
Public Sub SerialNo()

Insert Image - Center & Zoom
I have a worksheet (Covers) that is going to be the front and back covers for a binder.
The title/text portion is automatically filled from cells elsewhere in the workbook.
I have a button to bring up a userform that allows one to select the images (3 .jpg images) you wish to use on the cover pages.
I have code that successfully brings up the userform, and allows image selection and preview within the userform.
Now I want to insert these selected images into the worksheet, centered on specified cells and sized (zoom) to a maximum width/height (whichever is reached first).
Can a blank Picture be inserted with its size specified/fixed, then use code (Image1 = LoadPicture?) to change what is displayed?
Or do I have to calculate the size, center it on the page, and insert the image each time?
The code (in part) for the UserForm looks like:
Private Sub SelFcvrImg_Click()
Dim FCpicName As Variant
ChDir ("S:DanBuilder Logos-Photos")
FCpicName = Application. GetOpenFilename(Title:="Select an Image!", _
If FCpicName <> False Then InsertImgForm.FCoverImgPrvw.Picture = LoadPicture(FCpicName)
The UserForm has an Image (preview) with PictureSizeMode set to zoom.
I'm really after the same thing embedded in the sheet...

Center Inserted Image Within Range
I am having some troubles inserting an image than centering it within the cell.
When I do this:
Set rng = Target.Cells
.Height = rng.Height
.Width = rng.Width
.Left = rng.Left
.Top = rng.Top
The picture fits within the borders of the cell, but when I do this:
Set rng = Target.Cells
.Height = rng.Height /2
.Width = rng.Width /2
.Left = rng.Left /2
.Top = rng.Top /2
The picture is the right size but not within the cell.
Center UserForm On Screen On Show
I'm having trouble centering my UserForms on the screen. I have tried all the options on the StartUpPosition in the Properties windows and the closest I can get is vertically centered but on the far left. The annoying thing is that it was working (both vertically and horizontally centered) but when I changed the defaults of the option buttons they moved to the position I described. I have two monitors (but excel is maximised on one monitor only) could this have something to do with my problem? If so why did it work before?
Align X Y Data Points On Combination Chart
Following my bosses recent charting attempts involving multicoloured backgrounds, graduated bars, textured boxes, mis-matched fonts etc, etc, which frankly showed no information whatever, I was asked to simplify them.
I did so, as in the two attachments, but the response is now along the lines of "well, yes, but they aren't very exciting, are they?"
Align 2 Tables, Match Two Outputs From A Database
My goal is to match two outputs from a database so that the same person's record can be found on one row. At present output 2 does not marry up to output 1 due to staff leaving and new appointments being made. The data in output 1 should remain static. The data in output 2 must be manipulated to match the order of output 1.
Output 1 is a 5 column record containing (in A6:E6)
Forename, Surname, Branch, Roll Number, and a % score
Output 2 is again a 5 column record containing (in G6:K6)
Forename, Surname, Branch, Roll Number, and a % score
Each employee can be identified by a unique Roll Number Code contained in the fourth column of each record.
If an ideal match has been found I'd like the letter Y to be inserted in the L column of each record to signify a positive comparison. All non matches should have the letter N in the L column & these non matches should be placed at the bottom of the dataset.
Cells Not Responding To Left, Right, Center Arrangment
I think I did something but I don't know What. I select a cell that has a 20 font Size I enter a number it show at the 20 Font. Now when I go some ware else in the work unselecting that cell the number went to font 10 and droped to the left bottom of the cell. When I select the cell again and select the the left middle and right to move the number it does not responed. It happens everyware in the worksheet.
Calculating A Call Center's Average Workload
I have a rather complex worksheet, but it needs lots of manual intervention, it calculates the number of staff needed at any given hour for a call center based on the calls offered for an hour, the calls for a day are copied into the calandar and the last 7 "Mondays" "Tuesdays" etc: calls are averaged to give me a call trend, what I need is a way of automaticly adding this data.
I have created dropdown boxes with all the dates, if I choose a date, I want to be able to fill the last 7 "Mondays data"
Align Numbers From 2 Columns In Parent Child Manner
I have searched numerous times for the answer I need, but no joy yet.
I have a spread sheet that has one column (call it 1) of data with a single entry each of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on.
I have a second column (call it 2) that has multiple entries of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on, and I want to sort so that the rows wind up with the numbers in column 1 all sorted in an accending order, but I want all the same numbers in column 2 sorted to "list" next to the same number before the next number sorts. See below for a small example of what I hope to see once it sorts.
Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Unfortunately the example didn't post correctly..perhaps this will work but note that the x's are in column 1 and don't exist.
Match And Align Data Based On Unique ID Numbers
I have list of unique numbers on Column A and names on Column B. I have another set of unique numbers on Column C and counters on Column D. I have 100 numbers on Column A and I have 10 numbers on Column C. Every numbers on Column C exists on Column A. How do I match and align the unique numbers and have Column B and D in same row? (E.g. 100000 Jones 30). This question is very similar to the one discussed at Aligning Columns With Same Data?
Add Blank Cells For People Not On Each Years List So All Names Align
I have 10 columns that are as follows. Name, rank 04, name, rank 05, name, rank 06, name, rank 07, name, rank 08. The longest name and rank list is over 1200 names long. What I need to do is create 1, 3, and 5 year averages based on rank.
My question is, is there a way to sort alphabetically that will automatically align column a,c,e,g,and i alphabetically that will also align each row by name.
name 04 05 06
joe 75 72
carl 72 48
Joe isn't present in 05, Paul isn't present in 04 or 06, and Carl isn't present in 06.
Basically I need excel to add blank cells for people not on each years list so all names align.
Show Cell Value(text) In Comment Box Text, Or Mouse Tool Tip On An Gif Icon
I have a spread sheet were the area is getting very limited. I need to insert a small icon and when the mouse goes over (like it does in a form tool tip) will show the value of a cell (text value) located in another sheet in same workbook, or I was thinking inset a comment next to the icon and link the comments of the comments text to cell with the text value.
I've look the properties of this to objects and can figure it out.
Text Search Returns Cell Text Contents Of Different Column In The Same Row
Search a worksheet for a user defined text string, and have excell return the contents of a predetermined column in the same row in which the text string was found.
A prepopulated worksheet has the text "gold" entered in cell T278.
1. user searches for "yellow_metal"
2. Excell finds "yellow_metal" in row 278, say in cell A278.
3. Excell then goes to predetermined column (programed as part of macro or VB), say "T", and returns the text contents of the cell in that column, T278 in this example.
4. Excell returns "gold"
Combine Cell Content With Text File & Save As Text
- I have excel file with data I need
- I have fixed txt(html) template that i need to integrate Excel information into
- Final result that I want to achieve is saved .txt(html) file with combination of fixed information (text) and data from excel cells.
I need to writing a VBA code for each of above (integrating text & cells, saving results as text)
Write Ranges To Text Files & Save Each As Cell Text
I m trying to write a macro which could take the text from a single column row T2 to row T313 and write it to a .txt file. Have the .txt file name created by the text in T4 or I could also put the text to name the file in T1 if you think it would be easier.
Then carry on to the next named sheet and produce another .txt file in exactly the same way until all 15 sheets have been completed. It would also be helpful if prior to starting to write each text files, it could test for any text in cell A2 of the sheet. The first empty A2 cell of a sheet would determine the end of the run, if it was prior to sheet 15 being reached.
Lots Of Text In Cell...stops Wrapping Text
I am preparing a very large spreadsheet of text. Once I reach a certain point (a few paragraphs?), the program stops wrapping the text. All of my text is visible in the box at the top of the spreadsheet when I click on the cell. I double checked to make sure it's set to wrap, which it is. I tried merging two cells, no change.
Pull Varying Length Text From Cell Text

Validate Cell For Text Length & Characters In Text
I have a cell (B2) I would like to apply multiple data validations to.
I know I need to use the custom formula option but don't know how to write the formula.
I don't even know if it is possible, but here is what I'm after
I need to make sure the cell is 4 digits long
I need to make sure the cell starts with a zero (Because the cell starts with a zero I have it as a text cell)
I need to make sure the 2nd number is not 0 if A2 begins with 5 (A2 is also a text cell).
Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List
I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?
There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.
Highlight Specific Text Within A Cell Of Other Text
This is the text:
Take 5 PPE Swabs per Area, Both Shifts. Test various equipment - hands, aprons, sleeves, hats, etc.
What I need is for "Take 5 PPE Swabs per Area, Both Shifts." to be bold and highlighted in gray, but none of the other text. Conditional formatting highlights the entire cell, which won't work.
Append Text To Existing Cell Text
I've got a sheet in which I want a drop down box, to ADD the value* to a cell, not overwriting its current value!
*The name of the selected option in the drop down box, the names are located in Map3!A1-n, I set the drop down box to display the related number in a cell next to it.
The cell would contain some text, and by selecting something in the drop down box, it would add the name of that option to the already existing value in the cell.
So if at first the cell's value is
Hi! I 'm Mark,
and you select the following option from the dropdown box
I 'm from Holland!
the cell would end with the value
Hi! I 'm Mark, I'm from Holland!
This would probably work with a macro, already made a start with it but I couldn't get it to ADD the value instead of overwriting it.
Add Text Based On Part Of Another Cell Text
I have been working on this worksheet part of which is attached herewith. I would like excel to automatically enter Updated/Inserted in column B against Individuals' names as per the instructions given in column A. For example: As per instruction in A9, B13:B16 should show Updated. I have tried to use the nested if function, but it does not work as I want it to. Also as I am not used to macros or VBA codes, could this problem be solved with formulas?
If Cell Contains Text Place Text In Another Cell
This might not actually be able to be done, but im sure the best chance I have to do this is by getting help from you all.
What I need to do is look in cell "A1". If that cell contains a number I need to go to cell "B1" and type with the 00 being replaced with what is in cell "A1".
For Example if cell "A1" has the number 67 in it then I need B1 to say .
