Allowing Users To Select The Range For A Macro To Be Run On
Jan 12, 2009
i have a spreadsheet that data is imported to from a different program. however the amount of rows of data will change from day to day. I need to be able to select this range of data before i run a macro on it.
I have a workbook that I would like to share and allow multiple users to add and make changes at the same time. However, the workbook is full of macros that really need to run. Is this possible? The workbook is written in excel 2003.
If this is not possible then is it possible to share the workbook in a similar fashion but not allow any other users to make changes, but update their workbook with the changes that I make?
What i am trying to do: Create a login option to filter what worksheets each user can see. I need the users to be able to view 2 sheets not just 1. Also i need an admin login that can view all sheets. I want to keep the workbook protected so even though they can see and edit those two sheets they can only edit certain unlocked cells. Admin should be able to view/edit all cells on all sheets.
Below is my code which is made for a sample workbook. I was just trying to get the concept down and then i would convert it to the real workbook.
I have an event handler that runs a procedure when a user double clicks a cell. This procedure modifies the contents of this cell and other cells. I want the user to be able to select the cell so they can double click it, but I don't want them to be able to single click it and modify it by hand (accidentally or not). Is there a way to lock/unlock the contents of the cell without locking the cell itself?
Sub UseChangePassword() Dim wksOne As Worksheet Set wksOne = Application.ActiveSheet ' Protect the worksheet. wksOne.Protect ' Establish a range that can allow edits ' on the protected worksheet. wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges.Add _ Title:="Classified", _ Range:=Range("A1:A4"), _ Password:="secret" MsgBox "Cells A1 to A4 can be edited on the protected worksheet." ' Change the password. wksOne.Protection.AllowEditRanges(1).ChangePassword _ Password:="moresecret" MsgBox "The password for these cells has been changed." End Sub
The red color code is giving error message: Application defined or Object defined error.
I am making a spreadsheet that allows users to select items from a validated data list. Each item in the list has a numeric value in an adjacent column. When the user is entering data they will select from a drop down of the data list in column "A" and I would like to have the numeric value that corresponds with their selection to then autofill in column "B". I have tried VLOOKUP and IF formulas but cannot seem to get anything to work.
How can I have my macro run in its cell and still allow the cell to be blank? Say I have a number, 0.99, in the cell and I want to delete it and leave it blank. I can either push "Backspace" or the delete key and it still leaves zeros.
If I push the space bar it stops the macro (which I do not want to happen) and leaves the cell blank because I added a space.
If MonthView control can be set to allow users to select multiple ranges and enter different dates into those ranges? I know I was able to do with with the previous Datepicker control and I thought it was as easy as setting the Show Modal property to true.
I have the following macro so that we can use the outline feature without having to unprotect a sheet.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() With Worksheets("Schedule") .Protect Password:="APQP", Userinterfaceonly:=True[code]....
However once the macro is run, filtering will not work without unprotecting the sheet first. If you choose not to run the macro, filtering will work without unprotecting the sheet however the outline feature will not. what I need to add and where to make both the outline and filter features to work without having to unptotect the sheet?
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.
I have made a sheet where the user can insert/delete rows in a certain intervall of rows. The upper row is 17, that is I have named the cell "First" and then the last row "Last" and then I am using integers:
Dim intStartrow As Integer Dim intLastrow As Integer intStartrow = ActiveSheet.Range("First").Row + 1 intLastrow = ActiveSheet.Range("Last").Row - 1
So it is only possible to add/delete rows if the markerer is in between the above rows.
Now I would like to select the rows, from first to last. Since the rows are never the same, users add and delete rows all the time, I can not use
Can I somehow make a range selection using the Integers, somethimg like
With ActiveSheet Selection."intStartrow:intLastrow" End With
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate Range("A1").Select Selection.End(xlDown).Select ActiveCell.Offset(rowOffset:=1, columnOffset:=0).Activate ActiveCell.PasteSpecial End Sub it errors to: SELECT METHOD OR RANGE CLASS FAILED
I download some data from a commercial real estate site about properties and their owners and process it in Excel. Out of 1,000 records, maybe 20 or so will have the data end up in the wrong fields. This is an artifact of the data source the commercial site uses.
Anyway, what I need to do is to get the data back in the right fields. So, I sort the data to pull together at the top of the sheet all the records with data where it's not supposed to be. So far, so good.
Now from one data download to another the number of records which end up in the sort will be different. And, here's the problem.
I try to record a macro mimicking my selection of the range of the data that needs to be moved. Fine, no problem. And, on the same dataset it works like a charm. But as soon as I put a different dataset into the spreadsheet with a different number of records that need to be corrected the macro fails.
Apparently, this is because the macro has been defined with a certain range of cells selected in the first data set and this same range is used for subsequent datasets with different numbers of errant records.
Basically, what I'm trying to record in a macro is the Shift/Control End and Shift/control arrow commands. But they don't record as such.
I am trying to find a table of text, and copy it to another worksheet. I want to copy it as a range, not as rows or columns. Using Find, I can get to the 1st row of the table. Using Find again, I can get to the last row of the table.
What I don’t know how to do next is select the range.
For example; The table is in cells A10:F20. “Start” is in cell A10, and “End” is in cell A20.
Starting from cell A1, how do I find and select the range A10:F20.?
I will be doing this twice in the same macro, as there are 2 tables. Each of the 2 tables has the same “Start” and “End” text, as described above. The 2 tables will not always be located in the same location within the original WkSht.
How would a code look like to select a range with a column header on top. in the code you provided, it selected the entire W column. How would you select the range given that the W column was called Address?
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.
I have a client list in a table in my excel sheet. I currently enter the clients in a sheet that looks similar to a form. After the clients info is in this Form I have a button with a macro to copy the client info into a table on another sheet. This works perfectly.
Now I have another form that will retrieve the customers info in a click of a button in order to make changes to the client. Ei:I now have a second phone number and I want to update that client's info. What I want to do from here is take the info in Cell B2 (clients full Name), Do a vLookup in the "Saved Clients Table" in a Range within my table range. (Range: Saved Clients and the client's full name is in $A:$A and called "Clients Full Name" and once that name is found I need to select the cell in column C and the corresponding row.
This will allow me to copy the info in my form, Paste it in Transpose to the cell that is selected. (I already have that code)
Here are screenshots of what I am trying to accomplish. [URL] .......
