Auto Fill Userform Controls From Excel External Datasource
Aug 30, 2007
I know I can populate userform controls within a workbook in the form of a database but I want to know if that is possible to do so from another excel workbook that would be set-up like a database.
This is what I had in mind:
One workbook would contain the userform to select different product specifications with the ability to view previous records (quotes), add new records, and update the previous records. This workbook would be used by multiple users.
Once the form is opened (and connection to other workbook is established), previous records will autofill the controls. If the user wants to enter a new record, all controls will clear. There will be a save button on the form itself to save new records (quotes). make the file read only so no data is actually saved in the shared workbook.
The other workbook will serve as a database and will have a column for each control on the form. This may require 4 to 5 worksheets.
I am trying to create a spreadsheet to record vehicle mileage at the end of each week, however sometimes we cannot input the information until 2 or 3 weeks later. I am looking for a way to auto fill specific cells when the user inputs the information using a userform. On the attached spreadsheet:
The first button input an 'Empty Row' ready for the new week and current mileage. The second button opens the userform to select the vehicle, date and input the mileage. I cannot figure out how to have the mileage inserted into the correct cell irrespective of when we insert the information.
I have a userform [AddEditMove] with a bunch of textboxes (something like 30) that create entries in a spreadsheet ["Move Records"] along one row. In addition to creating those basic entries, the textboxes also fill in other spreadsheets after manipulating the entered data in various ways.
Therefore, if an entry needs to be changed, it needs to be changed from the userform rather than just on the main sheet, or those other actions won't be taken. At least, that's how I see it now. I'm interested in knowing how other people have handled similar set ups.
Right now, what I think I'd like is for the user to be able to double click any entry on the main sheet and have that action call up the userform and autofill the data from the sheet so the user can change what they need to change and then update it. It would also require a tweak in the userform code -- "if called from cell click, then fill info in selected row, rather than next empty line" -- if that's possible.
I am running excel 2007 thin client. in attempting to refresh a query, I have encountered this error message: "run time error 1004 Incomplete datasource". The four line macro is as follows:
Code: Sub RefreshFamily() Sheets("Family").QueryTables("Family_refresh").EnableRefresh = True Sheets("Family").QueryTables("Family_refresh").Refresh BackgroundQuery:=True Sheets("Family").QueryTables("Family_refresh").EnableRefresh = False End Sub
Where the named range "Family refresh" is defined as :
I have an excel spreadsheet like the one attached. My problem is column A has a ton of blank cells. Wht I'm trying to do in Column A is write a formula that fills in the blank cells with the number of the last previous filled in cell. For example the first number is .25 I want to fill in the blank spaces below it with .25 all the way until it reaches a different number which in this case is .219.
Once it reaches .219 I want it then to fill in the blank spaces below it with .219 until it reaches a different number. So basically I'm looking for a formula to fill this in on its own instead of having to drag the cells over and over again manually.
In the excel spreadsheet attached I have in Column D the end result I wish to accomplish.
I want to auto update ( refresh ) an external feed containing odds from Pinnacle Sports website, at 30-60 seconds intervals. Here is the link : [URL] .....
I would also want to apply some formulas to other columns in excel, but mainly I would want to know where is the change in odds. For example if Bayern Munchen has the odds 2, and after the refresh the odds dropped at 1.9 I would want to see the difference in another cell.
I have a userform that has nested multipages (5 in the outer page, 4 in the inner page).
On each of these multipages, I want to have the same controls (sliders) laid out in the same order - but with unique names, named after their tab location, for each control so I can use their value property later in the code.
I've designed the layout and named all the controls on my first sheet (e.g. Slider1Outer1Inner1). I now need a way of automating the replication of these across the other 19 sheets (including the nested inner multipage!); so that equivalent slider for example would be called Slider1Outer1Inner2, Slider1Outer1Inner3 etc.
I'm not sure about coding VBA to act on items within VBA...
VB: " For each multipage in outer For Each multipage In inner For Each Object In current multipage Copy inner.object -> Next multipage Inner.object.name = CurrentOuter & CurrentInner & CurrentSlider "
What's the best way to hide controls on a userform? I have a userfrom with 2 datepicker one for start date and one for end date. I want them hidden until I use checkbox and check it to appear. I am using this code but nothing is work.
I have a number of TextBoxes across the page, all set to Visible=False.
If these get filled with data then I need to set Visible=True.
Rather than hard code this individually for each one (which is not a problem, it just looks untidy), can I select each row as a Group (whilst designing the form, not in the code) and then set that Group to Visible=True ?
I have a userform that contains several textboxes, checkboxes, and comboboxes. There are also some command buttons, one of which says clear all. What I want to do is loop through the controls and clear the contents or change the value to false, depending on the type. I can do this by type the name.value = "", but there are alot of controls. If possible, a loop would be much more effecient.
I am trying to create some controls in a userform on the fly based on the data in a sheet. The part of my code is the following:
summaryForm.Controls.Add bstrProgID:="forms.label.1", Name:="LAWts", Visible:=True With summaryForm.Controls("LAWts") .Top = 120 .Left = 20 .Height = 18 .Width = 300 .Caption = "Weights: " End With
Question I is that how can I connet this textbox to a click event or just to a procedure when it is clicked? I tried to use OnAction but it does not work for textbox in a userform. Question II is that how can I find the all properties of a textbox or any other controls? Is there a manuel or reference available on the internet?
What are the pros/cons of using Userforms with the various objects (comboboxes, textboxes,etc) compared to putting the controls at the worksheet level? Are there things you can do in one and not the other?
I am trying to transfer data from a worksheet to a user form, so that the end users can edit the data on the user form, save it, and the revised data is sent back to the worksheet. since the worksheet data is dynamic, i am trying to dynamically add controls in the user form. but the form displays only one data.
Set sdel = Sheets("Deliverables") Set rStartCell = sdel.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 0) counter = Mid(rStartCell.Address, 4) dummy = 0 cnt = 1 'copy data from sheet to the user form With sdel 'checking if deliverables sheet has any data ' If .Range("A3") <> " " Then Exit Sub ' MyTextBox.Caption = .Range("A3").Value For r = 3 To counter If .Cells(r, 1) <> "" Then
Set MyTextBox = Controls.Add("Forms.Label.1", "lbl" & cnt, Visible) MyTextBox.Top = topadd + 30 MyTextBox.Left = 20 MyTextBox.Width = 150 MyTextBox = .Range("A" & r).Value cnt = cnt + 1 Else dummy = dummy + 1 End If Next r
I have a userform with a series of textboxes used for data entry (numeric values) specifically, 3 groups with 5 text boxes per group. If the value of any text box within a group is either >= the value of a cell in a worksheet range (Benchmark, i.e. BM), then the BackColor of that particular text box changes to green.
The challenge I have is trying to loop through each set of five controls to determine if the control's value is >= to the cell's value in the worksheet range, and if that condition is met, than changing the BackColor to green.
I know there must be a more efficient way to make this happen than to write an 'If - Then' for each text box (see code below)
way to allow a user to add a control to a userform without going into the VBE. Here is the situation, I am developing a userform to calculate a projected budget. I want the user to be able to select the number of controls to add, and click a command button to add them. Based on other selections that the user makes, different controls would automatically be added. Is this possible? As a follow up, will I be able to atttach code to these new controls?
On the event that a combobox is changed the objects on my userform that relate to the same information as the combobox need to be disabled (and made invisible)... however if another choice is made then they need to be enabled again and then the objects relating to the new selection need to be disabled.
Private Sub cbo1_Change() Dim DisableIndex As Integer Dim CellAddress As String Worksheets("Matrix").activate ActiveSheet. Range("B1").Select Do If ActiveCell.Value <> cboVarNamEn.Value Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select End If Loop While ActiveCell.Value <> cboVarNamEn.Value CellAddress = ActiveCell.Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlA1) ActiveSheet.Range("B1:" & CellAddress).Select DisableIndex = Selection.Cells.Count Me.FrameAddEn.Controls("label" & DisableIndex).Enabled = False Me.FrameAddEn.Controls("label" & DisableIndex).Visible = False 'there a few other objects here that will also be disabled... text boxes, check boxes etc.
Putting an unload/load command in won't work for obvious reasons and I can't use a command button because that would require my clients to actually think of pressing it.
I have a MultiPage userform and I'm adding (4) control buttons - CancelButton, BackButton, ForwardButton and FinishButton. On the first page, those names are fine but when I get to subsequent pages, I get an ambiguous error if I try to name the controls the same. But the code will all be the same. What am I missing? In an example that I have, the user was able to name all the controls with the same name. What setting would control that?
My userform has a group of controls, four navigation buttons and a textbox. The nav. buttons have accelerator keys, Alt+N for next record and so on. I was moving the group about on a userform, when hey presto! it suddenly disappeared. When I run the form, the navigation buttons do not appear, but I can still navigate using Alt+N, Alt+P. Here's what I've done so far, trying to find out what's going on.
* I selected all controls with Ctrl+A, but there was no sign of any object in the place where the missing group should have been.
* I looked on the Object Browser (which is something I don't understand too well yet) and the navigation buttons are there.
* I hid all the controls, and showed them again, didn't help.
* The group I was moving was near the bottom of the form. I set the zoom property of the form to 50, so all controls in design view were bunched up near the top left corner; the missing group didn't appear
The form that I have created has a number of controls that are created at runtime. If a user triggers the event that originally created the controls, I want to be able to delete all of the controls before recreating them.
Is there a loop that can delete all of the newly created controls? I have 9 controls on the form that need to stay put but everything after those 9 controls I want to delete. Is there something like:
I am trying to calculate the result of two text boxes in a third textbox on a userform.
Box1 = DirectorHrs = a textbox that the user enters the number of hours Box2= DirectorRate = a textbox that retrieves the rate from a sheet called "Rates" within the workbook upon initialise of userform. Box3 = DirectorTotal = Box1*Box2. I want this to update when the user enters or changes Box1.
I have the following code on the change event of Box1
Private Sub DirectorHrs_Change() DirectorTotal.Value = CStr(Val(DirectorRate.Value) * Val(DirectorHrs.Value)) End Sub
I'm making a form in excel to retrieve a number of welds. This number needs to be passed on to the next form to dynamically create an identical number of input fields (a set of text boxes and labels essentially). Any ideas on how I might do this? Is it even possible? I would like to avoid having 100 (my assumed maximum, it could get changed) sets of input fields and hiding the unused ones,
