I need to be able to hide and unhide a given set of rows based on the value in a particular cell. My current code allows me to successfully do this, ONLY, when I select the cell being 'watched' for changes and press enter. It does not execute the code automatically.
The cell is changed by a set of filters that modifies the data. The watched cell is then a summation of the filter modified cells. If the filters change to all "0" or "-" then my 'watched' cell sum becomes "0" and thus should execute the code automatically.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("I62").Value = "0" Then
Rows("63:87").Hidden = True
So, right now if I use the filter and the cells change then the sum in I62 becomes "0", I have to manually select cell I62 and press enter and which point the above code executes exactly as I intend.
I need the execution part to be automatic and not have to manual click into cell I62.
I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.
I am using excel 2010.
This is the code i am using for each shape.
Code: If Range("n12").Value = text Then ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255) End If
I would like to write the code or create a macro that will execute when the value of a range of cells is greater than null. The macro or code that I would like to execute will UNHIDE a group of consecutive rows.
Assume a cell -- say A1 -- has a long formula in it. If I select A1, press F2 to "Enter" the cell, then I have a blinking 'l' indicating the cursor/pointer position WITHIN the cell.
Is there any way to control the position of the blinking 'l' (or whatever it is called)? For instance, in a long formula, I would like to write a macro which could transport the blinking 'l' to midway into the formula string.
Alternatively, can I make a partial selection WITHIN a cell and run a macro on it. For instance, if cell B1 has a heading "Dec 2007" and I highlight just the "Dec" portion of the string, I would like to execute a macro to color it red. I have a simple macro that can do it to the entire cell, but not to only part of the cell contents. Is there any way for VBA to be active when I am WITHIN a cell.
Sub Font_Red() 'will add red color to ActiveCell font Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3 End Sub
I have cells in range L12:BN1000 with formulas that will output a 1 or a 2.
If the output is 1, I would like the cell to color yellow if the output is 2, I would like the cell to color orange
the reason I dont want to use conditional formatting is because the use needs to be able to copy and insert rows and by doing so the use would need to manually add the new cells into the conditional format range. I would like to come up with a macro that applies this condition to a large range.
also, were do I add this macro? under sheet1? this workbook? or as a module?
Using Excel 2003 with WinXP. I'm trying to run macro code automatically whenever time = 9:30:01 (or whatever time I pick) for a stock market trading program, which is why the exact time matters so much. I've been able to get the time to update fine, but unless I click on the worksheet while the time condition is TRUE then my code doesn't run. The time actually is sent to me from the stock data provider and it shows up in a cell as a constantly updating value.
I've tried using the Workbook_SheetChange function and OnTime method, but without luck.
In both cases, unless I activate the sheet the code doesn't run. By activate, I mean that I have to click on the sheet when the values that trigger the code to run would be true. If I do that it works just fine, but sitting around and clicking on a worksheet defeats the purpose of automation. Since I'm trading stocks this has to be very exact, so I can't trust a macro scheduler to do this.
The code further below is what I'm trying to get to run. The time value is in cell L1. In cell L2 I have the following
I want to execute the following code once for each day (Mon to Sun)
Dim Day As String Dim DeletedDept As String Set StartRange = Cells(Range("Cashiers").Row + 1, Range(Day & "_Date").Column + 1) Set EndRange = Cells(Range("Cashier_Totals").Row - 1, Range(Day & "_Date").Column + 3) Set EntryRange = Range(StartRange, EndRange) For Each cl In EntryRange If cl.Value = DeletedDept Then cl.Value = "" Next
Is it possible to write a macro that can import VBA code in a text file then execute it? I need this functionality as I have produced a corporate spreadsheet template that goes out to many people and I will need to be able to update it as requirements change once it has been distributed. So my idea was to build a macro in the template that has the code in it to import the "update code" from a text file that I would send to all the folks that have the template. If the template was centralized, that would save me from this issue but it is however going to be distributed widely.
I've attached a sample workbook in which there are 3 macro-buttons.
The buttons will paste a shape in the active cell. So this means the buttons themselves could be deleted and replaced with a shape.
Since locking and then protecting the cells disables the macros, how can I amend the code to make sure the buttons' cells are protected from the copying and pasting macros? Or, how do I ensure that the macros only work in A1 - E5?
I have recently used a before_close event on this workbook to save a backup of the open file to another location on my system. This works fine but I was wondering if there was some more code I could add to only execute this event on a write access basis.
The file I use can be viewed by anyone on the network as read-only and only certain users with a password can edit/update with a write access password.
The backup event is use executes every time the document is closed be it read-only or write-access.
Ideally I would like to add some code to only execute this backup if the file is opened on a write-access basis.
I have a spreadsheet that calculates percentages and then outputs the results to a pie chart. There are 9 different percentages being graphed in cells A41 to A49. The chart looks weird if any of the percentages end up being 0, so I have the formula set to add 0.00001 to each calculation (so they show up as 0% and display on the chart as 0%, but truly are 0.00001). I would like it so that if any of these 9 percentages ends up being 0 (or really 0.00001) that the row automatically hides and thus won't display on the pie chart. How can I create a macro that automatically runs to accomplish this, and automatically updates as percentages are recalculated.
Is there a way that under "Type the Cell Reference" that you can make it automatically change to the cell the hyperlink is on?
The reason why i ask this is because I have hyperlinks linking to there current cell but once i delete a row above that... the cell refernece doesnt change therefore changing the cell reference to the cell above it
I have the following code written but I'm wondering if it's possible to modify this to change the red line to update to the path that the workbook is saved in? Meaning that User1Folder1 would change but [Workbook1.xlsm]Sheet1'E1 would always be the same.
I am trying to simplify a spreadsheet. I have a column with dates from last year and I was wondering if there is a formula that would automatically change the color of the cell once the date is over one year to the day to show that the date in the cell has expired?
I have a table with Dynamic Headings and Expanding rows, that's setup like below: The formula in the Qty column would produce a "0", if the result of the Index Match has a blank. For example in a different table the reference cell would have "Heading3". Therefore the results in the Qty column would be like example below. The products in the table below are like 0's and 1's to trigger the formula to calculate with the variables, or give a zero. If the Index Match found "Heading2" the results would be based on cells under "Heading2 Column" etc.
Cell b2 contains the formula =IF( COUNTIF(B$1:B2,B2)=1,MAX(A$1:A1)+1,"") I want cell b3 to contain the formula =IF(COUNTIF(B$1:B3,B3)=1,MAX(A$1:A2)+1,"") I can do this within the spreadsheet by simply highlight and drag down to autofill and excel updates the formula references as I need
However - because the sheet gets very large (its a sort of rough database) I dont fill in all the formulae on a blank sheet, but each time a record is entered using a VBA form I have the following working code copy the formula
However I dont want to use 'Active' - because I have to work out what cell is selected before this is executed and then reselect it after, which also causes the screen to flash when the active sheet changes so I tried the following which does not work
I have a spreadsheet with 6 hidden columns (B to G). Rows 1 to 14 are frozen and have data that comes from another work book and these rows will be protected. The user will enter data from H14 to U14 and then H15 to U15 for the next row and so on down the sheet. The number of rows of data over a week is variable, a minimum of 21 rows (3 per day) but no maximum.
When the user starts entering new data in the column range H to U I would like to automatically populate the 6 hidden cells on that row with information from particular cells in protected rows 1 to 14. For example B14 would populate with the value from I4, C14 would populate with the value from I5, D14 from I6, E14 from I7 and so on whenever someone enters a value anywhere from H14 through to U14.
I can understand that a worksheet change event would be useful to do this but I guess then it wouldn't want to run every time each cell is populated so I think if it had to activate on a single cell change then the cell in column L would be best. Also, as I understand it, there can be only one block of code per sheet that operates on a worksheet change event, have I got that right? If that is the case then I assume all the code to populate the hidden cells on each row will need to be in this block of code.
What I want is that I have a table like below (but it's long for 52 weeks) and long down with Vlookups. I want the formula with which I can just do the copy-paste and it will work. W1, W2.... are the sheet names with exactly the same formats inside.
A B C D E
W1 W2 W3 W4
6 Sales 10 #N/D!
The base formula (for W1) is: =Vlookup($a6;'W1'!$A:$B;2;0)
What I want, is the formula which instead of "W1" will write the sheet name which is in a row 5 (basically - cell name which is equal the sheet name), so with just dragging and moving the formula I will got the data from different sheets.
I tried this: =Vlookup(A6;'indirect("c5";1)'!$A:$B;2;0)
But I got #N/D! as in the example, instead of the numbers (yes, I put numbers into W1 and W2 sheets .
I am trying to use the worksheet calculate event to automatically change the color of a cell only when that particular cell changes. In E2 of the worksheet is a formula use to determine rating based on the result of 2 other cells. The rating is classified as follows
Low Moderate High Maximum
I would like to generate a different set of color to the cell and fonts for each of the rating. For example,
"Cyan" to the cell E1 and E2 with Black font if the result is "Low" "Plum" to the cell E1 and E2 with "Black font if the result is "Moderate" "Blue" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "High" and "Red" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "Maximum"
Sheet 2. A1: Drop down datavalidation list selected from A3, sheet 1.
On sheet 2, a user can select from the list. If a user changes the value in A2, sheet 1, I want the value that is associated and already selected in A1, sheet 2 to automatically update. There is a 1 to many relationship with the concat and the drop down. In that, sheet 2 can have multiple rows with the same value from sheet 1 A3. Is there a way when A3 sheet 1 changes, to search in A:A in sheet two and update the values for those records that match the original value in A3, sheet 1?
I have 2 Data tables in 2 sheets of the same workbook. I want to compare my column A of table 2 with column A of table 1 and delete any rows of table 2 where (column A of table 2 has a value which is not in the column A of table 1)
In Excel I used the Vlookup function and deleted any rows which had Error in result of the formula. May I know how to execute this in VB
