Automatically Selecting Dynamic Fields And Requiring Text Entry

Feb 24, 2007

I've got a software test plan that has test cases w/ individual pull-downs to select result states (All individually color-coded thanks to a macro). If any state is selected other than "Pass" or "Untested", a text entry feild appears two rows beneath the test case for additional notes and information regarding what behavior occurred when the test was done.

I need a way to a.) Automatically select this text field once any state other than "Pass" or "Untested" is selected in the pull-down, and b.) Require text entry in the field before the user can proceed to the next test case. (ideally w/ accompanying custom error message describing what information is required.)

I've pasted my macro code below: ...

Selecting Latest Entry In Table?

Nov 7, 2013

I have a table like this:

Book, Loaned to, Date
A Tale of 2 Cities, John, 1/1/2010
Oliver Twist, Mary, 2/3/2011
Great Expectations, James, 4/6/2011
Oliver Twist, Greg, 6/2/2010

I want to make it such that, when I input the name of the book, it will tell me the person whom I lent it to last and the date of the transaction. Preferably, this should be done without any assumptions on how the table is ordered. For example:

Book= Oliver Twist
Loaned to= Greg
Date= 6/2/2010

Selecting Cells Based On Textbox Entry

Oct 12, 2009

I have a user form with some option buttons (1,5,10,etc...) that are used so the user can select a given number of cells they want selected. My last option button is labled Other(optOther) and has a textbox next to it(txtOther).

What I am trying to do is give the user the option to either select one of the given numbers or be able to enter their own number. The data will then be extracted from one worksheet to another. I have all the coding for the optiong buttons with the given numbers, just cant figure the textbox one out.

My data starts on B5, so what i am trying to do is when the user enters number n, i would need data from B5:B(n+4).

Excel - How To Automatically Fill Blank Fields

Use Two Dropdown Lists With Two Set Of Information To Automatically Update Fields

Jan 29, 2013

I would like to Use two drop down list with two set of information to automatically update fields.

I have Job Titles (1-6) and Step (1-5). Each Job Title has a new pay rate and each step is an increase in pay. What I am trying to do is set up a drop down list where some one can drop down Job Title and step and have the rate automatically fill in.

I am able to get the Job title to auto fill the rate field, but am having trouble incorporating the step into the formula.

Here is what i currently have:

=VLOOKUP(H6,'Pay Rate'!$B$2:$G$12,3,FALSE)

H6 = Job tilte field on 'WorkSheet' (Sheet1)
'Pay Rate'!$B$2:$G$12 = Sheet2 and Step increases per Job Title
3 = the current column I was working with in order to make the rate appear
False = for exact info

I do not want to combine the two columns but keep them separate drop down list.

Automatically Update Autofilter For Change In Numeric Fields

Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)

so it'll update by itself. My criteria are on row 5 and all my data is below row 7. Row 7 contains the headers.
This all works fine for text-fields. My question is if someone can get it working with numbered fields?

Dynamic Forms For Data Entry

Apr 19, 2006

I am attempting to improve an old paper-form process that we use for entering equipment in our Product database. In general, the current process is as follows:

1. When new equipment is purchased, basic information is entered into the database.
2. A separate paper form for each item is printed with the existing information and sent to the field engineer.
3. Each type of equipment has a different form because it requires different data.
4. After construction is completed, the updated information is written on the form and sent back to the main office for review/approval then entered into the database.

This is very archaic...Not only are we killing tons of trees, most specialists are getting buried by the paperwork!

What I would like to do is create a form or template that can be used with different spreadsheets. Instead of printing a separate form for each item, the specialists would dump the existing data for a site into a spreadsheet, attach the template/form, and send the file(s) to the field engineer (FE). When the FE opens the file, he would select the equipment type (using a dropdown box) and the appropriate form would pop up. He would then be able to edit the data for that piece of equipment or view the next item of the same equipment type. If he selects a different equipment type, a new form would be displayed. All changes would go into the spreadsheet and get sent back to the specialist. I’m hoping the review/approval can be done using the Track Changes feature in Excel. They then have a way to import the spreadsheet data back into our Custom database.

The basic implementation seems straight forward albeit a lot to learn. I have found many good examples in the forum; however, I’m having a problem figuring out how to handle the following:

1. Many different people create the spreadsheets and send them to different FE’s. When they create a new spreadsheet, how would my template/form get “attached”? Would they need to open a template file and add their data as a different sheet?

2. The equipment table in the database has approximately 95 fields; however, only about 20-30 of them are used for a particular type of equipment. I was thinking of using a unique list to create the form for each equipment type.

3. Since different specialists create the spreadsheets. The columns won’t always be in the same order. Is there an easy way to order columns or do you think I should use the ' find' feature to dynamically find each field? (Like I said, that may be 20-30 fields for each type of equipment, and there are currently 40 different equipment types.) Is there a limit on the number of user forms that can be in a project?

4. Finally, can you use the Track Changes feature when items are changed using VBA or a form?

The form seems like a good idea, but because the dynamic nature of the spreadsheets, the code gets rather complex.

Import Data From Site Requiring Password?

Oct 19, 2012

import data from a website that requires a login/password (no login page, it pops up in a separate window like when trying to log onto an FTP).

I've got the login/password, and it's a simple call to the page to import it, but each time it asks me to authenticate when connecting (get the "Windows Security" popup asking me to authenticate).

Even when I select "Remember my credentials", it doesn't seem to, and so every time I end up having to manually hit enter to get by it.

Is there any way to pass the login/password information via VBA, or to get the "remember my credentials" to stick?

"One or more formulas in this workbook are longer than the allowed limit of 8192 characters. To avoid the limitation, save the workbook in the Excel 2007 Binary workbook format."

Automatically Create New Row With New Entry From Different Tab / Spreadsheet?

Mar 24, 2014

I've got a master spreadsheet grabbing data from 12-13 different tabs/spreadsheets.

One of those has a table, and I was wondering:

Is it possible for the master spreadsheet to automatically add a new line every time someone adds a new line and creates a new entry in a different spreadsheet?

In other words,

If there is a table in the master spreadsheet, and someone adds a new line, is there a formula which allows the master spreadsheet to add a new line in order to autopopulate?
