Automated User Logging

Oct 1, 2009

I keep a spreadsheet with the 50 or so wireless phones in our "lab". When someone checks them out, the rules are that they change the cell under Available to "NO" and add their user ID. When they return the device, they change the Available cell back to "YES". What I want is a log of who checked out the device, and when... which would be kept in "sheet 2".

I attached a small spreadsheet with the same columns and information you would see in the regular spread sheet. Sorry, I would rather have put it here, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

The spreadsheet has code which updates the "Counter" when someone checks out a device. Many thanks to the "Rocket Scientist" who helped me with that.

Automated Import Of User Chosen File

Sep 23, 2009

I am trying to do an automated import, the file I'm importing comes out of an application and in its properties just shows "file" so I can't use the standard text file methods. I originally recorded a macro for the automation and have tried to amend it.

I think it is falling over in the Destination stage, or maybe I need something instead of where the ". Name =" would normally go?

Private Sub All Files()
Dim sFilename

sFilename = Application _
. GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*), *.*")
If sFilename <> False Then
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=sFilename _
, Destination:=Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A4"))
'.Name = "All Files"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
.PreserveFormatting = True

Logging In A Website With Macros

Dec 12, 2008

I'm trying to automate some webscraping on a website that requires a login, and was wondering how I would do so using Macros with a specific username password somewhere in the spreadsheet, lets say B2, and C2 respectively. The website I'm trying to login is this; I think I have most of the scraping figured out; its just the log-in for now.

Logging Changes To A Worksheet Range

Oct 29, 2009

i have a spreadsheet with the following range in a worksheet called "Data".
The range is A3:CH9 where column A contains the data label and row 3contains a label for each month. So the data itself is in B4:CH9

Is it possible to set a macro that logs any changes to the data in the range
B4:CH9 and log that change in another worksheet (eg: "Log"). It would say who made the change (based on the USERNAME), what cell was changed, when it was changed and what the value was changed from and to.

Logging Live Data

Nov 30, 2008

I'd like to log live update data continuously,i.e. as the data in the cell changes. The problem I'm facing is that the data comes in at uneven intervals-- ranging from 30 to 50 ticks per second. So I can't really use a timer function. I need to use some function which saves the data as the cell value changes. So, for example, if cell A1 gets updated continuously, cell B1 could save the first value of A1 and then cell B2 could save the second value of cell A1-- and so forth.

How To Restrict Users From Logging More Than Once In Excel

Nov 7, 2011

I am doing an excel survey using forms. I want to restrict users from completing the survey more than once. i am using below code to input user login details in to a spreadsheet but i am not sure how to restrict them. I want a msgbox or some sort and then it closes the excel active workbook.

code to get username:
Sub GetName
Dim r As Range
Set r = Sheets("UserNames").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

r.Value = Environ("username")
r.Offset(0, 1).Value = Date
r.Offset(0, 2).Value = Time

End Sub

After looking through various forums i found code to highlight duplicates but not sure how this can be modified to suit my need.

Code to find duplicates:
Sub Dups()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Rng = Selection.Rows.Count

[Code] .......

I need a macro that records users accessing a workbook over a network and if I have not logged in after a 30 day period it will replace all calculations with data and if possible wipe all macros.
I have tried to nut this out but time is against me.

I have had my work taken to other sites within our business and passed of as their work, and it bugs me.

Sumproduct - Number Of Divers Logging Dives

Jan 24, 2014

Building a Dive Record spreadsheet and Annual Statisics requirements to compute automatically. I have gotten this far:


Unfortuantely, I do not have a list of divers names for referencing. I am using these for testing purposes:

Column B Diver's Names: B. Dodson, L. Lloyd, D. Burch, C. Haley, J. Wilson, B.Dodson, B. Dodson Columns M through BO (types of dives): will have "X's" in them if a specific type of dive was made, Scientific, Working, Training, Non-duty... Shore, Boat, Ice, Cave, etc..

I need to know how many Divers made the type of dives. For example, if I make three dives in Saltwater, L. Lloyd makes one, and D. Burch make one, the answer needs to show 3 which is correct. If Dodson makes one, Haley makes one, and Wilson makes one, the number is 2 (actually 2.33). It works in some cases and not in others.

Automated Grouping Using VB

Oct 20, 2008

I have a large excel sheet that will take a lot of time grouping it manually, so I was wondering if there was some way somebody could help me out with creating a code in VB to automate this grouping for me. All I would need is something to read through the rows of one column and when it finds a blank row, keep scanning until the next blank row and then group the data between the two blank rows. I have attached a small portion of the excel sheet I am working with if you need to get a visual of what I am needing.

Automated Adding

Jun 19, 2009

I have a monthly report that I get with lab tests and amounts ordered. (I will copy a section for you to see). The Director wants it to be compiled into an easy to read, 1 test with totals. The way i get the data is broken down by site (we have 5). So, i may have between 1-5 rows of the same test with a total for each. I want to set up a Macro/Script that would go through the report and automatically add the same test codes together. My long term goal is to have it pull the Test Number, Test Name and Total Count into a separate worksheet, with the Total Count being the count of all the same tests.

Trying To Build Automated Schedule?

Jun 23, 2014

I have been trying to create a macro that would create a schedule for me based on date and a product type. In columns K-N I have an IF statement that tells when a shipment would need to arrive in a row that corresponds with a date (column A is 1/1/2015 - 12/31/2015). On the next page I would like to generate a schedule that lists the dates that all of the products are needed in chronological order. I've tried to use custom functions like finding the nth_occurence but it just gets way too messy with so many shipments.

Automated Web Query And Parsing

Nov 28, 2009

I am attempting to automatically (once a week) pull down the data from this site ( which is posted in a csv and parse it. While this may seem to be a simple process, the people who posted the CSV did not take into account that there are dollar values in the data in the millions and billions. As a result, a normal comma parse does not work since it splits the values.

Automated Email Using DATE

Jul 18, 2013

Making an excel program that will automatically Email 5 people with either the whole document, a link to the doc, or just an email using the cells to inform them on what needs to be checked. And I don't even know where to start.

There will be a spreadsheet with everyone's name going down in column A, and then in the row next to the name it'll have a date of when they were put on it. It'll then have another date of the time they need to have done certain things, like see the doctor or get a class done, so when the current date reaches the date in the column the cell that is the same date will turn red, and the document will be mailed to 5 of the higher ups to inform them they need to check on this Marine to see if he has accomplished whatever task has expired.

Ive been trying to research a lot of this on my own, but ran into problem where the current outlook version does not suppose the command DATE within an excel, so I need to make a database using multiple excel sheets using Visual Basic(or so I'm told now).

Create A Automated Trigger

Apr 5, 2007

I am having trouble trying to get an MS Access Query to run from MS Excel automatically.

I am trying to create an automated trigger in MS Excel that will automatically run my Access query by the times I specify in my statement.

For example: I need to run a query in Access at 9am, 12 pm and 10pm, that's it, but I believe I need to do it via Excel, I don't want the data returned to Excel, I just want Excel to execute the query at those specific times!

Automated Copying Of Data

Jun 15, 2006

I use daily an Excel workbook that comprises 6 sheets. The first sheet has some very clever vba which at the click of a button converts the data in it to an xml file. I have looked through this vba and have on occasions, modified it slightly, sometimes successfully, sometimes not!! This is what I am wanting to do...... At the moment my data is entered into a different sheet in the workbook. This is because there is also additional information on this sheet that is not required on sheet 1. When a row in this sheet is completed the part of the row that is required is copy and pasted to the next available row on sheet 1. I then go back to where it was copied from and fill that row in a different colour to show me that it has been 'processed'

Although Sheet 1 is capable of 500 rows (set in the vba), I always produce my xml file from it when I get 20 rows of data. So, what I would like to do is be able to click a button, or a key press to:- copy part of a row of sheet 2. paste that into the next available row in sheet 1 ( upto a max of 20 rows)change the complete row of the copied data in sheet 2 to a different colour (preferably 'fill')

Automated Copy And Paste

Feb 6, 2007

I've got a list of 50,000 book titles in one column, with thousands of sets of between 2 to 5 duplicate titles. The second column has one unique summary per set of duplicate titles. I want to duplicate this summary to the remaining duplicate titles of the set (their 2nd column cells are blank). The third column describes the general condition of each book, and the fourth the asking price. I have been manually copying and pasting, but this is very time consuming. Is there a simple routine that can do this?

Automated Import Of Multiple TXT Files?

Jan 9, 2014

I import into my website a standard .csv file that contains product details from my supplier. Columns contain info such as RRP, Wholesale Price etc and rows for each product. For some reason thats only known to my supplier the text descriptions of each of the products are held on a seperate .txt file, in a separate folder with the .txt filename recorded one of the columns cells, one for each product. There are 1000's of products, each with its own .txt file such as 38675.txt, 37828.txt. As you can imagine to copy and paste into each products cell or to manually import each .txt will take the rest of my life.

how I could automate the input of the diferent .txt contents into the required cells.
