AutoFit Size Of Comment Box Of Selected Cell(s) To Its Content

Jan 18, 2014

I am wondering within the Excel interface, is it possible to auto-fit the size of a comment box to its content?

I have searched the internet and found that a macro as follows could do the job:

Sub FitComments()
Dim c As Comment
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Comments
c.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True
Next c
End Sub

However, this Macro applies to and resize all of the the comment boxes in the active sheet.

I would like to just auto-fit the comment box only to the selected cell, or even better, to multiple selected cells.

Matching Cell Content Against Selected Cells - Not Range?

May 2, 2013

I'm trying to use the below formula to to return "true" when text in cell (M2) matches text in selected cells on same row (A2, E2, and G2)

However, all formulas I found online that serve this purpose deal with cell range only, not predetermined cells with exclusions.

Formula:

=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(M2,A2:G2,0),TRUE,FALSE) (This will match all cells between A2 and G2 against M2)

reforming this formula to match selected cells only in-between that range (A2, E2 and G2)?

Is there a way to control the vertical size of a textbox, so that we could type in a List of Instructions to our operator, and the textbox would resize depending on the numbers of instructions in the box. Also the items in the cells beneath the textbox would need to move down, to allow for the resized textbox.

Data On Clipboard Is Not Same Size And Shape As Selected Area?

Dec 15, 2013

How to turn off or default the warning box message ...

"Data on the Clipboard is not the same size and shape as the selected area. Do you want to paste the data anyway"

I hate having to click yes on this every time I paste something. I do it hundreds of times a day.

My tables is centered and merged because my external date changes sizes each time I paste to the table.

I have looked all over to try and find an "OFF" warning/message button for this. I just want to know how to turn it off or default it to never pop up again!

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell

May 27, 2009

I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. Its visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Apr 18, 2014

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

Autofit Only Current Cell Column To That Cell Width

Dec 15, 2011

When I'm moving around in an Excel sheet, I want to have a keyboard shortcut that Autofits only the column I am "in", and only to the width of the cell I'm "in". So I can arrow-key into a cell, hit ctrl-shift-W or whatever, and the column will autofit.

I try Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit but that's not what I want, it autofits every column. Sometimes this is not appropriate and I want to do it manually for the columns I want auto-fit.

I guess the more general question is how do I write VBA code for the column I am in and not every column or a specific column - not Columns("A:I") or whatever, it's going to be a different column every time depending on what cell I'm editing.

Autofit Problems With A Row That Includes A Formula Referencing Another Cell

Jun 14, 2006

I have a document that I created that has merged cells. In order to autofit the rows of this document, I referenced the merged cells in singular cells that are not visible to the users of the document. (They are not hidden)

It had been working relatively nicely, but now the autofit function is not working correctly. If I copy and paste values into the cell it will work, but this would not be my ideal solution. I have tried playing with the number format, which works for the most part if I set it to "&" - text. It doesn't work for some longer cells with line breaks in them.

Copy Contents Of Multiple Comment Boxes And Paste In Single Comment Box

how to copy the contents of multiple comment boxes and paste in a single comment box.

The big picture is that I have a number of cells with numerical values in and text in comment boxes. I want to be able to click a button to copy the contents of the comment boxes and paste them, along with the numerical value from the cell, into a single comment box, ordered by highest to lowest value within the comment box, then delete the original cells and comments.

I am quite new to VBA but have been coping quite well so far with information of the web and analysing recorded macros.

Elseif Statement In Vba: If The Selected Cell Falls Between 1/01/06 And 31/01/06 Then Jan Would Be Selected

Oct 10, 2006

Basically it is a if statement saying that if the selected cell falls between 1/01/06 and 31/01/06 then Jan would be selected. The end part is not a problem; Im just not sure how to write the one line of code that would test if the cell falls between the two dates. I attemped to create it as shown in the code attached below but wasn't successful. I used an else if statement to test the other 11 months.

Sub test()
Dim SelectDate As Range
Set SelectDate = Range("SelectedDate")
If selectedDate >= 1 / 1 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 31 / 1 / 2006 Then
ActiveSheet. PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Jan"
ElseIf selectedDate >= 1 / 2 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 28 / 2 / 2006 Then

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Feb"........................

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

VBA / Word Picture Content Control Causing Unreadable Content?

Jan 15, 2013

I am using VBA to create a word document (.docx). This word document contains plain text content controls as well as picture content controls. I then use VBA to automatically select a picture based on the code below

Code:
Set oCC = Word.ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("TabPic").Item(1)
On Error GoTo TabErrorHandler
oCC.Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture Filename:="X:XFERANDREW-TDCD " & LblVL &

[Code].....

After the document has been closed down I try to open it again and I am told "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."

When I click details it says "Unspecified error" and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 0"

If I click ok it says "Word found unreadable content in "". Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you turst the source of this document, click Yes.

Clicking Yes opens the document with all the contents and it is now renamed to Document 1. If I click no it does not open.
