Application.onkey With 'enter'key
Have working routine with combobox lists which are split into 'beverages of sorts' - sent to textbox and from there put into columns of type/variety in other worksheets
All working fine apart from repeated 'hits' of the command buttons to activate the data movement
Have Excel2003 on XP Pro and have been trying to use the application.onkey sub to try and introduce the 'enter' key to try and make things easier
but......not winning (aaaagh)
code being used just now is
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell.Value = TextBox6.Value
As you see from 'textbox6' - I have a few of these for different beverage types and costs
Would be grateful for any help in introducing an 'ENTER' keystroke into the code somewhere.....to make it that bit more 'easier'

When I Hit "/ " Key It's Highlighting The 'File' Menu
I've no idea what combination of keys I hit to do this, but when I hit the / key it's highlighting the 'File' menu - working as though I pressed Alt.
Unlike Alt though, it doesn't un-highlight it if I press / again.
It only does it in Excel - Word works fine, as does notepad and obviously I can enter it on here to.
I've tried rebooting, but it's still there.
Run-time Error '1004' :: Method 'Range' Of Object'_Global' Failed
I am trying to create a macro in my personal macro book such that whenever any workbook is opened the calculation settings (tools, options, calculation tab) are set to semiautomatic and do not calculate before save. The macro works when I am opening Excel itself (Book1) but when I open an already saved file it gives me

Run-time Error '1004' Method 'Range' Of Object '_Worksheet' Failed
I have an interesting error that only happens when there is one row of data in the worksheet (sheet2 or "Half Payout"). Rows 1 & 2 are headers, row 3 is when the data starts - if any. With either no rows of data or more than one the coding works just fine. Here is the exact error message I'm getting: Run-time error '1004': Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed.
The following code is supposed to sort the rows of data when opened and then activate the first open cell below B2.
Run-time Error '1004': Methd 'Range' Of Object '_Global' Failed
I have constructed the following code to set the print area of worksheets that have been selected to print to the range referenced in a worksheet level named range "xPrintArea". This named range is set using the OFFSET function. The procedure also sets the left footer to be a copyright notice that is also contained in a cell referenced by a named range.
Set oPrintArea = Range(sPrintAreaName)
is generating the error "Methd 'Range' of object '_Global' failed".
Note that the line
Set oCopyrightNotice = Range("CopyrightNotice")
does not generate this error. From what I've been able to determine from other research on this forum and others, I believe the problem is that I need to more fully qualify the object which Range(sPrintAreaName) is referencing. I've already tried to use

Using 'IF' With Conditional Format (change Cell Color Based On The 'P' Or 'F')
My cell has a 'P' or an 'F' plus some additional text. I'm trying to change cell color based on the 'P' or 'F' but I can't get it to recognize the letters.
Samples of what I've tried:
I can 'FIND' the 'P' or 'F' but there may be a P or F else where in the cell so the color may come up incorrect. I'm trying to get it to just look at the first character in the cell. Can the 'IF' be used with CFs?
How To Restrict The Cell Data To Letters 'a' Through 'e' AND 'A' Through 'E'
I am trying to come up with an excel shee which can track the progress of a student on practice exams. This exam only has multiple choice questions, with answer choices A,B,C,D or E.
What I am looking for
1) I want to restrict the cell data to A,B,C,D or E (both cases). Note that I am not looking for a drop down/combo box. It would take the user to use one or two mouse clicks to drop down the list, and I am not in favor of that.
2) I would like this validation/formula to be applied to all the cells in a particular column.
If the user enters a lower case letter, then I would like to convert to upper case.

Run Time Error 1004 - Method 'Range' Of 'Object'_Global' Failed
I am trying to build a macro which will format the columns of a spreadsheet - basically it inserts some columns, writes formulas and highlights them. Here is a code I have got so far...
When I try to run this I get a run time error 1004 - Method 'Range' of 'Object'_Global' failed. The part of the code
Range("N2:N").FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-7]/RC[-2])"

Can anyone tell me why this is happening, also it would be great if you could suggest better ways of writing this code - as I am new to vba programming and most of my macros are built using the recorder and then 'working' on them.

Nested IF To Enter Information Into Column 'A'
I am trying to use a nested IF to enter info into col A. It is based on 4 pieces of info, I can get the first 3 to work but am struggling with the last part. The problem is that I am looking at the same cell for the first 3 parts but the last part is looking at another cell reference. A nested IF may not be the way to go. An example of the spreadsheet is as follows:
A B C D AB
1 12/1/10 Comp 1 Surveyer 1 18/1/10
Omit 11/1/10 Comp 2 Surveryer 1 Omit
0 10/1/10 Comp 1 Surveyer 2
Comp 3 Surveyer 1
The formula I am currently using in column A is:
This works for the first 3 pieces of information but however does put a 0 in col A if there is no date in col AB, but this what I expect as it's what I've asked for. I am missing the last piece of information.
But what I want to put in column A is:
If there is a date in column AB - enter 1
If there is the word 'Omit' in col AB - enter Omit
If there is no date or the word Omit in col AB - enter 0 and finally
If there is no date in col B - leave blank (if there is no date in col B, col AB will always be blank)
Run-Time Error '1004' Cannot Open PivotTable Source File 'Consolidated Report'
I have a macro that takes the date from different excel sheets, consolidates the data and renders the pivot table and chart accordingly. It was working fine when the date range defined for the pivot table was static. Now I have made it dynamic since the data range changes each month depending on the number of days it has got. When I run the macro, it runs succesfully, generates the report and save & close the report, but after that I am getting this error. Errorneous

Error 1004 Method 'Range' Of Object '_Worksheet' Failed
I have a cet of CommandButtons on sheet 1. The code for these buttons is in the code section of the sheet. A named range is referenced in this code. This named range is on sheet 2. Every time I try to reference this or any named range (from any other sheet), I get this "Run-time error '1004': Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed"
The last time I had this error I was able to fix it by moving the code to Module1. I tried that here, but it did not work (I can't figure out how to call it from the sheet). CommandButton. Here is the code from the sheet for one of the buttons:
Private Sub TBEnterUp_Click()
iLast = Range("WBDate_DayLast").Value '<<<<<<<
iItem = TBEnter.Value
If iItem = iLast Then
TBEnterUp.Visible = False
TBEnter.Value = iItem + 1
If iItem > 0 Then TBEnterDown.Visible = True
It is a simple number advancer. It is working in the UserForm I took it from. I have included a sample file of the problem. Feel free to look at it and borrow anything in it that you might like.
Both 'Private Sub Workbook_Open' And 'Auto Open' Run Sequentially
I have built a complex vba & multisheet spreadsheet that I am looking to secure against all the common attacks. So I have:A Workbook Open pw;
VBA password (29 symbols/numbers/Caps/lower case)
Very Hidden worksheets
Restricted scroll areas
Code that auto protects all sheets upon opening
Registry referencing in Workbook Open with timed closure if not matched
Now I am on the last leg of implementing protection against Application.EnableEvents = False; force enabling of Macros and hiding of toolbars, scrollbars etc... Phew.
Soooo, in my research, I have learnt that if EnableEvents = False, Workbook_Open is essentially skipped and the security VBA routines are disabled. To get around, I have copied the entire contents of the Workbook_Open routine to a module under Auto_Open. The first line of both these scripts is: Application.EnableEvents = True.
Works! So far so good.
However, I have a Msgbox prompt in the scripts that displays twice. So in essence, Excel is running Workbook Open first, then Auto Open second.
If I open another instance of Excel and run Application.EnableEvents = False first before opening my spreadsheet, I only get one message. So only the Auto Open script runs.
Method 'Range' Of Object '_Worksheet' Failed Error
I start in my "Action Plan for For Single Market" worksheet and if I click on the Command Button I then want to read in a couple of variables, and jump to a second worksheet (called "Market Action Plans") where I then want to copy a range, and then paste it in another area in that same sheet.
I thought I had worked out what to do, but when I execute I get a "run-time error 1004" when the macro gets to the "Range("Updated_Results").Copy" line. Excel describes the error as "Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed'" - which might as well be a foreign language as far as I am concerned!
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Current_Market_Row = Range("Current_Market_Row")
First_Col_Action_Desc = Range("First_Col_Action_Desc")
Sheets("Market Action Plans").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
Sheets("Action Plan for Single Market").Select
I am an occasional macro-creator and every now and again, I come across this type of problem where I can't get variables to be reconized, etc. I think it's because I don't understand enough about Private versus Public, and how to declare variables.

Method 'location' Of Object '_Chart' Failed
I'm currently working on a fairly complex VBA project in Excel 2007.

I then save a copy of the workbook to a local file, clear the Spreadsheet, and then Do the same for information from another site.
When I had all of the code in one Module and ran it as a macro it ran flawlessly.
Now i've put the information into a Class. And am pretty much running the same process via a UserForm.
The problem I have though is that at any point after I execute the (and please assume that all variables have been declared, because they have)

Combining 'counta' And 'countif'
I'm trying to create a report to show daily statistics for internet traffic. I have a large table showing a daily breakdown of performance, a table showing combined cost for all "Mondays", "Tuesdays" etc in the month and I also want a table to show the "average" performance for a typical "Monday", "Tuesday" etc.
The report will be used on a daily basis and I realised that until there is a full compliment of data the daily averages table would be inaccurate as it will be dividing the overall total for each day by the total number of occurances each day has in a typical month. This is wrong because if we are only halfway through the month then we will be dividing by days that haven't arrived yet.
'trim' Or 'clean' Spaces
On a regular basis I have to upload cost to our order system. These cost are sent to me by the suppliers, and the part numbers have to match exactly, (from the excel sheet to the order system), or else the cost won't upload.
I have found that in some of my upload files there is a space, or sometimes several spaces, at the end of the part number. These spaces will screw up the upload. I alwyas use the "Replace" option to replace spaces with nothing, and that usually works.
In the attached sample file, there are 3 part numbers with a space at the end of the part number. I tried using the replace option. That didn't work. I also tried using the =TRIM() formula and the =CLEAN() formula, and neither of those removed the spaces. Why can't I remove the spaces from the end of these part numbers?
