Added pictures of the items to include on quotes (the pictures are in a column to the right of all the other details - (these pictures only exist in Excel)).
Our new quoting software tool needs a link to the filename - however, our pictures don't have logical filenames!
Is there a way we can do a batch save as of all these images so it ends up as 'part#'.jpg within folder X?
There are about 6,000 products and will be a bit of zombie work we don't really want to do!
I currently have 3 batch files that I would like to be able to update using VBA instead of manually adding the information to each one. My goal is to be able to use my excel file and when I add new lines I could then run the script to save and/or update each of the batch files. I would like to be able to add the new lines I added in excel to the end of the batch files. I use the batch files for automation purposes but I do not like the fact that I have to open each one and added the same lines three times. This is why I want to be able to update my excel file and then add those new lines to the batch file. An example of how to accomplish this task using VBA would be awesome.
I need a macro that will export a text box as a high quality image, preferably .png. The code below copies and pastes the text box to a chart sheet and exports it as a .png, but the image quality is very low - under 100 dpi. Is there any way to export the image with high quality?
Code: Sub createtextimage() ' Adding text to textbox Dim q As String
I need to link an image to a cell value and display the selected image in a new sheet of the same excel. I am attaching samplefile for easy reference. The requirement is, from the workout sheet when I select from drop down list, then the corresponding cell value appears in Parameter sheet in C9 cell.
There are four images copied in Parameter excel. The given image has to be selected and linked to the C9 cell value. Based on the selection that particular image should be shown on Sample Picture sheet. Here based on the selection only the image should reflect here.
My workbook simply has multiple columns of data which will be summarized visually in a tag cloud (I have the tag cloud part taken care of already creating either a jpg or png, I simply have to change the extension within a batch file to change between picture formats)
I need to have the tag cloud image display and update depending on which column the user would like to summarize (for now I have simplified the issue by only having one of the data columns in my workbook, and will worry about the user selection of the data column to be summarized later).
My Main Question:
Focusing on the image display and updating now, whether it be an ActiveX Image Control or any other way. I've been playing around manually before I try and code it and I can not get either a jpg or png file to attach to the ActiveX control (both of which cause an Invalid Picture Message).
The file name can stay the same if need be and for now I think/assume that'd be easiest (I have my Tag cloud generator just replacing the previously existing image file of the same name).
Would ActiveX control be the way to go for this dynamically changing image?
I am looking for a way to take the picture name associated with an image ie: (picture 571) and place that picture name in the cell next to the image.
I can see the picture name - it registers in the top left box that usually indicates the cell the cursor is on... and I could manually type that name next to each image.
However my spreadsheet has several thousand rows- each with several columns of information and an image..
I am looking for a way "formula?" to automatically read the image in cell J4 and populate cell K4 with the image name... and so on.
The reason for my request... is I am importing products into a web based shopping cart... to do so I have to export the products to a csv and import that csv into the shopping cart. The process of exporting to a csv- strips away all the images and leaves just data.
I found that I can save the document as an html and that process creates a folder with all the images- saved as (picture 571.jpg) if the resulting csv had the image name... the shopping cart would then look for that image name in my image file and it would populate into the shopping cart appropriately.
This seemed on it's face like a really simple thing to do, I have plenty experience with excel & I thought I'd be able to make cell k4= j4 and tada it would glean the image name & I could simply copy that formula all the way down the sheet & it would be done... but I just cant find the magic button that freely gives up the image name...
I have a number of image controls on a user form, each being loaded with an image from file.
Image1 being loaded with a picture of a bus image2 being loaded with a picture of a school
And so on
Now what I am trying to do is when that image is clicked the name of that image is passed to a textbox
So the action would be
1 image of bus loaded into image control1 , the name of that image being bus.jpg 2 image is clicked 3 the name bus.jpg appears in a text box
Here is what I have so far
Private Sub Image1_Click() DataInput.TextBoxItem.Value = bus.jpg
DataInput.TextBoxItem.Value= Image1.Name - this does not work
Which works but as you can see this is static, as I have supplied the value , were as I would like the clicking action to pick up the name of the jpeg being displayed
So expanding upon this if say image1 is loaded with say a picture of a car instead of a bus
LValue4 = "E:Car.jpg"
Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(LValue4)
Now when it is clicked the name of the image being displayed in image control1 would be Car.jpg
And it is this value I wish to transfer to a text box for now will do more with it later
In addition to this I am not sure if the best idea is to have a number of image controls and load each with an individual picture or have one image control and swap the picture by clicking a command button
Is there a way to have image box display an image with a name matching data from a cell? example: if I type "hello" in cell a1, Image box will load image named "hello". And display new images by changing the name in cell a1. Note: the images will be located in a permanent folder.
I am trying to display an image ("image") on an image control ("Image1") placed in a worksheet ("Sheet1"). The problem is that I want this action to take place when I press a button in a user form. I am trying to use the following code, but it seems that VBA does not recognize the image control ("Image1") in the worksheet.
Private Sub cmdDisplayImage_Click() Dim image As Variant image = ThisWorkbook.Path & "sun.jpg" Sheets("Sheet1").Activate Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(image) End Sub
I have an excel spreadsheet with a list of numbers in column A. These are all "random" numbers in that they don't follow an order, but they mean something elsewhere.
The rest of the columns have other information that is related to the number in the same row.
I have another list of random numbers which is much smaller than the original, but all of the numbers on the smaller list (which is in a different excel document but can easily be put in its own column) are in the larger list as well..
I want to compare the two lists, and if the number from the smaller list is found on the larger list, I want the entire row deleted and all the remaining cells shifted up. I do not want any blank rows between the data.
I have several thousand text files, each with three columns of numbers. My goal is to convert each of these to a dbf file with three distinct columns (which is why simply renaming each with .dbf at the end doesn't work.) I can do this for an individual file by using the "Import External Data" Tool in Excel, selecting the "Fixed Width" option (which divides the figures into three distinct columns), and then saving the file as a dbf. I need to do this for several thousand files, however, so I can't do each by hand.
I was trying to run the shell command in VBA (excel2007) on a .BAT(batch) file. While running the macro, the DOS command prompt appears and goes away in a flash but the function of the .bat is not performed which makes me think that the shell command isnt functioning properly. I had this proper earlier also with a few Exe's.
the line of the macro that calls is (c is the path for the batch file) :
Call Shell(c, vbNormalFocus)
Could any of you help me with some suggestions regarding this problem.
Just to confirm, the batch file on itself works absolutely fine and it looks like it doesnt take more than 2 seconds to run it. It also does not wait for any input from the macro. it is an individual batch just included in the macro.
I use a software to find relationship between some variables. this software can export results (excel mathematical formula) to a text or excel file. I need use this formulas in my VBA codes. but I should convert about 100-150 formula each time, hence this is very time consuming and hard to do that manually. I wondering if there is any macro code or third party software for that?
I am trying to rename a lot of files within 1 folder. The Spreadsheet Column A contains all the old file names within a folder and Column B has the new file name. (1)My code is below but I continue getting an error that the file isn't found. (2) I would like to start with row 2 because row 1 will contain the folder path as a result of another macro.
I'm working on my first VBA project that requires 12 fields to be manually input of which one field is a file path. I need this path for multiple reasons, but the one reason I'm having a problem with is using the location of the path in conjunction with calling a bat file or executing a cmd prompt that is at that path.
Path Location, minus file name:
Code: sheets("b. Fill Out Required Info").Select Range("B18").Select Actual Path found in B18: C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files
File attempting to execute:
I can manually put all of this together and get what I want by using:
The problem is, every time this will be used, a different path will be used, but the same batch file name will be used. So, rather than having to manually input the file path every time, is there a way to replace "C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files" with the cell reference of the path listed above? I've tried different methods of this but I cannot seem to get it.
It would be even better if I could just use the cmd prompt found within the batch and run it directly from vba; the prompt I'm running is as follows:
Code: cd C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files dir /b/o |find ".xml">ListOfFileNames.txt
How can I put that cmd into VBA? I tried different versions of this with no success:
Code: Shell "cmd.exe /c cd C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files dir /b/o |find ".xml">ListOfFileNames.txt"
Notice that the path is the same as the path shown in B18 above. It would be great if that path would be dependent on the cell referenced above.
