BeforeDoubleClick But Preserve Original Cell

Sep 18, 2008

Within Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick, I have the following simple code extract that sets the appropriate autofilter to the correct value (and highlights a couple of cells for clarity) when a particular cell is double-clicked...

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C10:AQ11")) Is Nothing Then

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C10:D11")) Is Nothing Then

Selection.AutoFilter Field:=10, Criteria1:="C"
Range("C10:D11").Interior.ColorIndex = 36

End If

You'll be happy to hear that the event works as expected.

However I would like to add the following enhancement: after Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick completes the "double-clicked cell" is selected, is it possible for the "original" cell to be re-selected once the event completes?

Highlight Entire Row When Cell Selected Without Losing Original Formats And Color Of Original Row

Sep 5, 2012

The problem is when I highlight a row with some color the original color of the row is gone, so I tried this code, and again, it's removing the original format and color for the row This is the code from McGimpsey & Associates : Excel : Highlight row with background colors

PrivateSub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Const cnNUMCOLS AsLong=256
Const cnHIGHLIGHTCOLOR AsLong=36'default lt. yellow
Static rOld As Range
Static nColorIndices(1To cnNUMCOLS)AsLong
Dim i AsLong
IfNot rOld IsNothingThen'Restore color indices


How can I retain the range's historical color so that when I deselect the row it reverts properly?

BeforeDoubleClick Exclude Range

Aug 22, 2009

I have the following code which toggles the value of cells by double clicking on them. I need to exclude certain ranges of cells though. I tried password protecting the sheet, but that haults the code. Is there a way to exclude the cells or exit sub if the targeted cell was in the range of Rows("10:10") or Columns("A:B") for example?

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Into A Cell

Feb 24, 2010

I am making template and trying to preserve formatting when users paste into a cell. From my research, I have found that this is impossible with simple format protection, it works to prevent changing formating, but if something is pasted (with normal paste), the format will change.

I have found a few solutions, but can't get them to work correctly

Solution A: Disable normal paste and substitute Paste Special - Values

How will this work with pasting via CTRL + V and the right click menu? I need both to function.

Solution B: Allow users to paste normally, but use a macro to copy formatting from a hidden sheet

I actually found code for this, but I couldn't figure out exactly how to impliment it. The sheet that users will be pasting into is called "Batch Summary" and I was trying to pull formatting from a sheet names "Batch Summary Format", but was getting an error.

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Part Of A Cell

Jun 4, 2013

Is it possible to preserve original text formatting when copying and pasting only part of a cell. Like, for example, a cell may contain ten words one of which is in red and underlined. How do you copy that one word and paste it in another cell so that it remains in red and underlined?

Search & Replace - Preserve Cell Format

Jul 13, 2006

I'm using the code below to do a simple search & replace. The code is working fine.
My problem is after the search & replace is done, certain cells that contain numbers look weird with decimal points & plus signs similar to Format Cells - Scientific. How do I prevent these cells from looking 'weird' in my code?

I've attached a workbook with 2 sheets called Before & After. You can see the 'weird' cells in After.

Sub Macro1()
Cells.Replace What:=": ", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder _
:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False
End Sub

Preserve Cell Number Format In Message Box

May 28, 2007

I'm writting an Excell VB application which reads data from my spreadsheet and places it into the text member of an IXMLDOMElement node in order to generate a QBXML request.

The cell I am reading from has datatype number with two decimal places as required by the xml scheme. The problem is that the Range.Value Variant data type drops the decimal point and any trailing zeros so that 1197.00 become 1197. Unfortunately, the QBXML parser requires to see the decimal as well as trailing zeros. So, 1197.90 must show up as precisely that. Changing 1197.90 into 1197.9, for example, also breaks the xml.

My Excel VBA book specifically states that a Variant data type holding numerical data will maintain the data type assigned to it.

I also tried declaring a local decimal (Dim MyDecimal As Decimal) thinking to try copying the Range.Value value to it before assigning to the QBXML field in order to force the correct data format but my VBA macro compiler does not apparently recognize "Decimal" as a valid data type event though my book clearly indicates it is one of the valid VB data types.

I am using Excel 2000. Are these problems solved in newer versions?

Beforedoubleclick Create Sheet Stops Working Intermittently

Apr 27, 2007

I am using a BeforeDoubleClick event to look for a worksheet name and if it exists, go to the sheet. If the worksheet does not exist, it is creates a new sheet by copying a hidden sheet and naming it using a name in a cell reference. It works for the most part, but I am finding that it is having an intermittant issue. Sometimes, when I double-click, it double-clicks the target cell for editing, and then it renames the active sheet to the cell reference rather than copying the hidden sheet. It seems to happen when I reach 35 sheets created, but not always. Here is the

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim WSname As String
Dim WScheck As Worksheet
Dim WScheckname As String
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A5:L85")) Is Nothing Then
WSname = Range("L" & Target.Row)
On Error Resume Next
Set WScheck = Sheets(WSname)
If WScheck Is Nothing Then 'Doesn't exist so create it
Sheets("Master_SLP").Copy Before:=Sheets(Worksheets.Count)
ActiveSheet.Name = WSname.........................

End Sub

...However I do not know how to change the cells back to the original value before it was made blank.

Create Copy Workbook With Cell Referencing To Original?

Apr 15, 2014

At my work we are using Excel as a CMS to produce SQL scripts for insertion into a database. The data is then turned into mobile web pages. This involves multiple workbooks - 1 for each main page with the sub-pages as extra worksheets in the book.

Much of the data is duplicated so we have created master workbooks then copied them and laboriously referenced the relevant cells back to the original. That way if any data in the master is changed, all copies will change simultaneously.

This is obviously not the most efficient way of publishing web pages but we are stuck with it for now. So I am wondering if it is possible to write a VBA code to create a copy of the master and then reference all required tables in the worksheets automatically? The tables are all named ranges.

Text To Columns :: Use Function When Original Cell Has More Than One Line

Oct 10, 2007

I want to use the text to columns function when the original cell has more then one line (lines are separated with Alt+Enter). Somehow Excel does only notice the first line.

cell A1:
Bookrunner: Lehman Brothers;
Mandated Arranger: CapSource Financial Inc;
Participant: Citibank NA

(After the ";" is an ENTER)

And i want it to be like this at the end:

Return To Original Cell After Freeze Panes Macro

Dec 3, 2007

I have a workbook where I have columns requiring entry from A to AD. I have set conditional formatting in column A to show a colour if there is an entry in column AD. I would like to use a macro to always freeze panes in column D (to show the data in the first 3 columns) and the macro would then show column AD in the other frozen pane/split.

As there will always be an entry in column A but not always in column AD I want to be able to select any highlighted row in column A , run the macro and the cursor will be showing in column AD on the same row ( relative reference?) thus showing the entry in AD next to the other info in columns A, B and C.

At the moment I have a macro that unfreezes my header row and is set to always choose the "next empty cell" but I don't know the code to change it to get what I want. Currently if I select any entry in column A e.g. row 100 and run the macro I find the cursor showing in AD2! Of course I would like to run another macro to return back to A on the same row too.....

Macro To Copy Formula While Keeping Original Cell References

Feb 17, 2009

I'm trying to create a VBA macro that will allow me to copy a formula from one sheet to another whilst keeping all the original references.


If the formula on Sheet1 is:

= sum(A1:B6)

then the copied formula on Sheet2 would read


You can do this by cuting the cell, but I don't want to do this, I want to leave the original cell unchanged.

I'm sure there is some simple VBA code to do this, but I can't seem to figure it out.

Concatif Function Breaks Beforedoubleclick Function Just By Being There?

Nov 19, 2009

I have a tracking sheet (attached) that has many functions, but I'm having trouble with two of them. First of all, I have a Worksheet_Change event set that when a cell is cleared, it fills the cell with a formula to use the record above it as a default value if another cell is equivalent. This worked when I first wrote it, but now it seems to break every other time I use it. When assigning the formula it returns a Method Default/FormulaR1C1/Offset failed error message. It seems to be different for each one, each time and I can't figure out what the problem is.

The other problem I'm having is that I wrote a BeforeDoubleClick event to expand or contract any given record, or series of records. this too worked when I initially wrote it, but now is only hiding one row when it should be hiding eight or more.
I'm not terribly versed in VBA and totally baffled as to why I'm having these problems. As I side note, any ideas to clean up any of the code and make this run smoother (as ther will be many more series added when complete).

Re-establishing Formulas On “text” Input For A Specific “cell” = Original Formula Act

Nov 23, 2009

See attached worksheet for reference. Is it possible (while utilizing the same spreadsheet on a weekly basis) to zero a spreadsheet subsequent to its use. Importantly however, all relevant formulas must remain perfectly intact and will re-establish themselves once relevant data is placed inside an individual cell? In this case, as soon as a “Name” (or even a letter) is referenced inside the “Name” column: H10:H19?

In other words, the entire sheet is blank bar the top date and respective headings. Once any text is placed inside cells H10:H19, the formulas from the associated Row re-applies itself to the “Week-Start” dates, “Week-End” dates and references a default “Phone” amount for ‘$10’? The Data Validation formulas I’m sure would remain undamaged? This would prevent ‘text clutter’ (such as dates extending to the bottom with no apparent referencing or connecting information?

Excel 2010 :: Making Hard Coded Cell Dynamic While Maintaining Original Content

May 16, 2014

I pulled a set of financial statements from a database into Excel. All of the values are hard coded but I would like to make them dynamic, while maintaining the original content. For example, If cell C3 is a revenue figure for 2012 ($1,000) I would like to link it to cell C5, which will be a currency conversion rate (2.0). So I would like cell C3 to read =1000*C5, which would equal 2000, and for cell D3 to equal 2013 sales*D5, etc. I would also like this to go across a specified range so that I can also change operating expenses, taxes, etc over a number of columns (dates) that I define, all linking to the conversion rate for the given year. Having another tab where you link and anchor is an option but I would prefer something in VBA where I can qickly include this functionality with new workbooks that I download.

I am using Excel 2010.

Array Won't Preserve Values?

Apr 8, 2014

I am trying to store values into a dynamic array. The size of the array will vary each time, so I need the range to be dynamic. Most importantly, I need all values to be retained in the array. Currently, a value will be stored, but once the next round of the for loop is initiated, the array changes to "<subscript out of range>" and stays that way until the it is replaced by the next value. So, there isn't an accumualtion in the array--it goes one value, to out of range, to one value, etc.

VBA - Preserve Hyperlink When Using VLOOKUP?

May 26, 2014

I am having when trying to preserve a hyperlink when using VLOOKUP. I have two worksheets within the same workbook. Worksheet 1 contains a lot of information for internal use(many of the cells in all of the columns contain hyperlinks to web addresses), and Worksheet 2 should be a version identical to this, showing only the selected columns suitable for external use. This is to avoid using two different 'work trackers'; so, when info in Worksheet 1 is updated, Worksheet 2 should automatically be updated and reflect this.

I am currently using the following code:

Function GetHyperLink(r As Range) As String
If r.Hyperlinks.Count Then
GetHyperLink = r.Hyperlinks(1).Address
End If

Preserve Formatting After XML Import

Jun 11, 2008

I have programmed a button that allows the user to import XML data into my workbook via the following

Sub Button5_Click()
FileToOpen = Application. GetOpenFilename("XML files (*.xml), *.xml")
If FileToOpen <> False Then
ActiveWorkbook.XmlMaps("RouteDoc_Map").Import (FileToOpen)
End If
End Sub

All my XML data comes in great to the associated mapped cells (on several worksheets) but the data that is coming in as a list erases the alternating white/gray conditional formating that I've applied via FORMULA IS =MOD(ROW(),2). How would I be able to preserve the alternating white/gray conditional formating, no matter how many rows are being imported via my button ?

Delete Rows But Preserve Formula?

Apr 29, 2012

I have an inventory sheet with rows containing a formula. I've placed the same formula in all 65536 rows that Excel 2003 has.

I have a macro to delete unused items. It searches for an item number then deletes that row. (Actually it deletes the item number and a partial row based on an offset, but that was for an earlier version and an entire row would be okay) When a row is deleted, all the other rows move up and Excel creates a new last row (65536) The problem is that this new row has no formulas. While it's probably unlikely that I'll ever blow through 65536 rows, it seems sloppy to leave this unaccounted for.

Is there a way to either add the existing formula(s) to the last row...or insert a new row *somewhere* that is empty except for the formula of the other rows in the sheet? Here's what I have for the existing code.

'Search for item to delete based on entry to InputBox
Sub Delete_Item()
Dim FindString As String
Dim Rng As Range
Dim YesOrNoAnswerToMessageBox As String
Dim QuestionToMessageBox As String

VB Code To Reinstate/preserve Formula

Apr 25, 2009

My current headache is that I want to be able to reinstate excel formula when the delete key is hit. However there this is a slight catch. I don't just want to be able to do this for one cell but reinstate the same excel forumla in an entire cloumn (ie for multiple rows). On top of this I also need to find a way of being able to do this for multiple columns (ie column 1 has formula 1, column 2 has formula 2 etc.....)

I have found this but I am having trouble adapting it to suit my purpose. This code just reinstates the formula for 1 cell.

Worksheet module:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address "$A$1" Then
Application.OnKey "{del}"
Application.OnKey "{del}", "myFormula"
End If
End Sub

Sub myFormula()
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Formula = "=RC[1]+RC[2]"
End Sub

Preserve Formula References After Sort

Oct 23, 2006

I have noticed that if I create a row and put a reference formula in one of the cells (i.e. in Cell B3 I have "=B4", to show contents of B4), then after I do Sort and Row 3 moves else where, formula in what used to be B3 no longer points to B4, but rather to B<new row + 1>.

Absolute reference doesn't seem to be an option (i.e. "=$B$4") since after sorting rows in question the cell references in my B cells do get screwed up. I guess I want to bind a certain cell to a certain other cell, and keep that bind no matter where I move the row.
