Allow User To Select A Range Of Cells

May 9, 2008

I'm trying to create a macro for another user that she will use repeatedly for many different spreadsheets. Each spreadsheet will have a varying amount of rows that will need to be exported to a different file. She will highlight the cells she wants exported and then hit a button to do so. My problem is this: how do I code a macro so that it will know which cell is the beginning of her selection and which is the end?

I'm trying to get a users' selected range to display in a cell as stored text.

therefore, If a user selects A1:D7. The text in Cells("G", 10) will be:"A1:D7"

w/o the quotes.

I've attached an example workbook.

User Scroll Through Range And Then Select

Mar 4, 2008

******** ******************** ************************************************************************>Microsoft Excel - Rod Extract Test Master.xls___Running: 11.0 : OS = Windows XP (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutCR1=CRCSCTCUCV1LoanNumberCollectTaxEscCollectOthEscPayIntonEscRETaxMonthlyConst2304100830NNY$0.003304100830NNN$0.00Borrower,Master,ARM[HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name boxPLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

What I need to have happen is that the user decides what duplicate row to delete. The reason that there is a duplicate is that Row 1 has something different from Row 2. In my example above, CU1 is different from CU2. This is what caused this loan number from CR to be duplicated. I need to delete at my discretion one of the 2 rows.

What I would like is to have the user Select Range CR1:CR2 (this is relative in the sheet), run the macro, have it select the 2 row range, compare (relative) B1:B2 are they equal, compare C1:C2, are they equal, etc through the rest of the range. I would like the screen to update and stop with the range highlighted that is and and a MsgBox to click ok to Continue, then continue through the rest of the range. Once it has finished cheking the range, can the user use the mouse to select the range from CR that needs to be deleted, have the appropriate range selected and then the MsgBox Is this the range you want to delete? Y/N........................

Allow User To Select Range Mid-macro

Aug 27, 2009

I have a protected worksheet with a mixture of locked and unlocked cells, and I'd like to provide an option to allow the user to select a large range of mixed (locked and unlocked) cells and, in the unlocked cells only, pre-populate with a standard formula.

I've got most of it working, but what I need is the specific code that allows the user to specify the range of cells they want the macro to act on.

VBA Code To Allow User To Select Range In Another Open Workbook?

Jul 26, 2013

I need the code to allow a user to select a column of their choice in an open workbook of their choice so that data can be lookuped up and changed. I am happy to create the code to do the lookup/changing, however the nearest I have found is the use of an inputbox which is limited to the active spreadsheet only. Some people have said the input box could be used over to another spreadsheet but I have not found that to work.

What I will need returned is the workbook name, sheet name and column. That will allow me to point to that and do the task.

This code could be used by 5 people and those 5 people could be running it on 20 different spreadsheets.

I thought this would be easy to find but it has eluded me. When using Excel normally, if you do a simple lookup formula, or create pivot function, excel prompts the user to select the workbook/sheet.

Allow User To Select Range To Copy Macro Code

Apr 30, 2008

I cant seem to get to work together in the same macro but that work great seperated. I need them to be in the same macro. The first just simply copy's text from one workbook to another:

Sub Test2()
ActiveSheet. Range("a1").Copy _
Destination:=Workbooks("punchlist.xls"). Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count,1).End(xlup).Offset(1,0)
End Sub

That worked ok but I needed to change it to the "active cell" instead of cell "a1". So then this line of code was made:

Dim userInputCell As Range

On Error Resume Next
Set userInputCell = Application.InputBox("Use the mouse to select a cell on any sheet", type:=8)
On Error Goto 0
If userInputCell Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "Cancel pressed"
Else
Msgbox "You selected " & userInputCell.Address(,,,True)
End If

The second code works just the way I want it but it doesnt copy over the text to the other workbook. I assume the 2 codes need to be together but I cant get it to work without errors. I also need the text to copy over without changing the borders on either workbook.

VBA - Allow User Select Locked Cells While Sheet Is Protected

Mar 29, 2012

Here is an excerpt of my code

Code:
Else
Sheet8.Unprotect Password:="rm123abc"
Sheet8.Range("V" & rw) = "Item is not found in the Data Base. Please Contact DME for all documentation requirements for this item"
Sheet8.Protect Password:="rm123abc", AllowFiltering:=True, AllowInsertingRows:=True, AllowDeletingRows:=True
End If

Unfortunately, once the code has run and has finished re-protecting my sheet, it doesn't allow the user to select locked cells. These locked cells contain hyperlinks, and they need to click on these hyperlinks to navigate through my workbook.

So I have two questions:

1. How can I enable allow user to select locked cells
2. Do I have to allow the user to select locked cells to access my hyperlinks, or is there another option?

How Do You Select A Range Of Cells On Another Worksheet Using The Cells Property

Apr 19, 2007

I seem to be going round and round in circles with this, but I'm sure it should be easy.

I'm just trying to select a range of cells in Sheet2 of my workbook.
I've tried many different bits of code, including:

Dim namesTotal As Integer

namesTotal = 2500

Sheets("Sheet2").Activate
ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(namesTotal, 8)).Select

(According to the Microsoft website, this is supposed to be the way to do it?)

Can't Select Range Of Cells

Feb 28, 2014

Why the following code gives me an error. I have so much trouble with ranges, I use the syntax as it is prescribed. Here is the code. I will include some code lines underneath since I imagine they wont work either.

[Code] .....

I eventually will be turning the range statements into copy and paste instead of select. At the moment I am using select to make sure the proper cells are being selected.

I am also attaching my complete workbook as well.

Select A Range Of Non-adjacent Cells

Jun 29, 2006

I have a series of data values in non-adjacent columns in an excel spreadsheet.

In the following example, assume the | (vertical bar) refers to the start of
a new cell:

F|45|A|30|F|15|F|10

Using the SUMIF formula, I want to add all numbers which are preceded by a
cell containing the letter F.

SUMIF(A1:G1,"F",B1:H1)

What I need to do is specify a range of every second cell in the row (starting with Cell A1) for validating they equal F, and a range of the alternating cells (starting in column B1) for the range containing the data to add. How can I specify these ranges (I can't name each cell individually as I have more than 30 cells to add up in my real life situation and the IF function allows selection of no more than 30 values)?

Select Unlocked Cells In A Range

Oct 4, 2012

I'm looking for a macro that only selects the unprotected cells in a range. So that I can copy a formula in these cells.

I found the below macro on the web but it will select all the unprotected cells in the worksheet. I guess this one can easily be adjusted to only select the cells in a range, but I do not know how to do this.

Code:

Sub SelectUnlockedCells()
Dim WorkRange As Range
Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim Cell As Range
Set WorkRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
For Each Cell In WorkRange
If Cell.Locked = False Then

Select Cells From Range That Contains Comma?

Jun 21, 2013

I have come up with this bit of code by joining in two separate sets of code that I used earlier. What I want to do is this, for a given range I need to find each cell that has a comma and once that cell is found a formula has to be applied in a cell few columns to the left.. Here is the code that I am using..

Code:
Sub Macro8()
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To 1000

[Code]...

The sheet can be downloaded from here, I want column H to be (Col B / Col C) whenever Col A has a cell with comma in it. For this sheet col H needs to be populated 3 in places. The code above does it only for first instance.

Select Blank Cells In Range

Mar 12, 2008

I have a spreadsheet which always contains data beginning in column A and through row H. However, there may be blank cell(s) in columns B through G. Therefore, if I use

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

it will not take me to column H if say column d has a blank cell. The same applies to my rows which always vary.
