Application.onkey With 'enter'key

Apr 10, 2009

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

Sub commandbutton1_click()
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell.Value = TextBox6.Value
End sub

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 make it that bit more 'easier'

Onkey Or User Interrupt

Mar 13, 2007

This is still the continuing saga of the Toastmasters countdown speech timer. I got past the timer loop issue but now I need a way to detect (preferrably) the spacebar being pressed during the timer loop. I want that keypress (or any other key if spacebar isn't do-able) to end the timer loop and run the WriteLog routine.

I am coming to the conclusion that Onkey is not what I want.

I want to make a macro where it will use the current filename of the workbook I have open (where is says New Quote Sheet 2.xls below) Is there something I can put where it will use the current filename when the filename is changed?

New Quote Sheet is a read-only template, and when a new quote is started, it is renamed.

Application.Run "'New Quote Sheet2.xls'!Part8"
Sheets("8-Part").Copy After:=Sheets(25)

With the help of Professional Excel Developement by Bullen Bovey and Green, I am building a Dictator Application. All-in-all, it is coming very well, EXCEPT that I can't seem to get the IgnoreRemoteRequests setting to get written to the registry properly on ShutDown.

On Open, I change this setting to True. In the BeforeClose event, I reset it to False, along with all of the Settings that I hosed on Open. All of the other settings get properly saved on exit, however, the IgnoreRemoteRequests is still set to True the next time Excel gets re-opened.

Application.VLookup In VBA

Jun 4, 2008

I've probably spent the last 4 hours reading posts from a bunch of different boards as well as this one, and I can't seem to pinpoint my problem. I'm trying to access data from a closed workbook via the following:

'Dim x As Variant

'x = Application.VLookup(Cells(1, 1).Value, Workbooks("C:Documents and SettingsmeMy DocumentsmyOptionsProgramsLiveUpdate.xls").Sheets("LIVE UPDATE").Range("$A$1:$C$5"), 3, False)

Cells(1, 2).Value = x

It doesn't seem to be working as I get the following error:

Run-time error -9

Usage In Application

Jun 26, 2009

done some VBScript spreadsheet reporting involving basically inserting data and some formatting.

I need some advice on what approach to take with Excel on my current project. The basic goal is to scrape project requirements off a word doc and load them into Quality Center (a test management tool from HP, henceforth referred to as QC). I have an hta/vbs process that offers the user choices gleaned from the QC API, scrapes the word doc, and creates a spreadsheet with a row for each requirement and a column for each property a "requirement" has in QC. These values are a combination of data from the word doc and values selected by the user in the preceeding hta interface.

The reason for this Excel step in the process is that all the values chosen up to this point are generic for the entire project. But there are a few properties that will be requirement specific. So all the info is collected in Excel and the user is to then go through each row and choose the "target cycle" (which I pulled off QC earlier in the process and display in Excel as a dropdown list). The "Platform Folder" and the "Module Folder".

Ok, so with that backround, here is my quandry... In the hta interface the user selected all the "Platform Folders" the project will have requirements in. These are then presented in a dropdown in the Excel, so the user can choose which of these Platform Folders this specific requirement should be loaded into. What I need to do is then have the "Module Folders" to be a dropdown that is dependant on the "Platform folder" chosen.

This is difficult enough for me, creating a dynamic dependant dropdown that will be replicated on each row. I don't know exactly how to do this but feel I can probably figure it out with all the help offered on these MVP sites.

What I can't figure out is where to do this. Should I set up the lists, formulas, and control code dynamically? Can these dependant list derive their values from comma delimited lists (like I did the non-dependent lists) or must they be in a worksheet? The only way I see to make the dependent dropdown work correctly is to have it run off a worksheet event. Can worksheet event code be applied dynamically or do I need to have a "template" type workbook containing the code in the application's folder and use that instead of creating a new workbook at exe time? I still have to write the upload into QC code, and that will probably be a macro that the user will have to install into their personal.xls. Can the dependent dropdown code be installed in the same way even though it needs to be event driven? Another aspect is getting the data for the dropdown. I can either get the lists earlier in the process when I already have a connection to QC and pass it along, or I can connect to QC from Excel and get the values dynamically. I am assuming passing them in will be more efficient.

Using Application Events With An Add-In

May 23, 2006

I've created an addin to reformat spreadsheets that I receive in a particular format. What I would like to do is enable events so that whenever a spreadsheet is opened the reformatting procedure is run (this also validates whether the spreadsheet is of the correct format).

I have created a class module with the following code (exactly as the Excel help):

Public WithEvents App As Application

Dim X As New EventClassModule

Sub InitializeApp()
Set X.App = Application
End Sub

Private Sub App_WorkbookOpen(ByVal Wb As Workbook)
SortE1Output 'This is my procedure that determines whether the
'spreadsheet is of the correct format and then reformats it
End Sub

"After you run the InitializeApp procedure, the App object in the class module points to the Microsoft Excel Application object, and the event procedures in the class module will run when the events occur."

When I try to make a call to the InitializeApp procedure in the auto_open procedure (in a different non-class module) I get a "compile error: sub or function not defined".

Jun 27, 2007

I have created a macro that must extract data from other workbook. It opens the workbook, with an exist, and isopened control, and then open it. Itīs running well, but i found while making another macro, that if the file direction is "", then i cant run the exist control. Next you have the code im using. In the first version, i had .LookIn = ThisWorkbook.Path. Now Iīve tried:

1. Dont put .LookIn, and fName is ""
2. .LookIn = ""
.FileName = "Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls"

Both are failing, it says, the file doesnt exist. If i try directly WorkBooks.Open "", it opens correctly, but i would have a control, because the original file name could change, and the macro would crash if does.

Function OpenWorkBook(fName) As Integer
If Exists(fName) Then
If (IsOpen(fName) = False) Then
Workbooks.Open (fName)
OpenWorkBook = True
MsgBox "The WorkBook " & originWorkBookName & " is already open."
OpenWorkBook = -1
End If

Controlling Another Application Where Hotkey Is Not Available?

Jan 29, 2014

I am working on an Excel macro which uses the Shell function to open another application, the AppActivate statement to change focus to that application, and then a series of SendKeys statements to perform tasks for which keystrokes (hotkeys) are available. However, there is one step in the process which does not have a hotkey available, but requires clicking on a drop-down with the mouse. Is there a way to have an Excel macro "click" on something for which a hotkey is not available?

Open An Spreadsheet Except Through The Application

Dec 16, 2008

I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet except through the Excel application. This includes through Windows Explorer, on the internet (this forum), in email. I need to save the file first, then open Excel, then open (through Excel) the file.

In Email, I get "System cannnot find the file specified" On this site, I get "Access to the specified device/path is denied" From Explorer, "Cannot find the file.... based on the criteria xls(or one of its components). Make sure the path and file name are correct and that all required libraries are available."

Last time, our IT group couldn't fix it and had to reinstall the entire Office package to get it working again. I'd rather not go through that.

I'm trying to get input from a user regarding parameters for loan calculations. I'm still very new at VBA so some of this will seem very silly, but I've been trying for hours to get this to work right and I keep fixing problems and creating more simultaneously. I've come to the conclusion that I have a fundamental misunderstanding of how this works.

This one actually works fine, but I am including it just in case I've done something less than perfect and someone can correct it.
