BeforeUpdate Event Fires Multiple Times

Feb 3, 2008

I wrote some code to validate an inputfield. I want to keep the focus on this field until a correct (numeric) value is inputed. Therefore I use teh beforeUpdate event instead of the afterUpdate event. Some strange things happen (see code below):

1. When I press enter after putting some non-numeric data in the inpBedrag2 field the msgbox is displayed three times in a row. This doesn't happen when the field loses focus by clicking another field (-> msgbox only displays once = correct behaviour)
2. What's really driving me nuts is the fact that the (more or lesse the same sub) works perfectly.

What am I doing wrong? I'm not getting it. Probably I'm doing something very stupid ... but I can't figure it out myself.

Combo Box Event Fires When It Shouldn't

Jul 13, 2007

I have a combo box that insert certain information in the row corresponding to the active cell. Apparently the events that trigger the code are generated by the combo box ( change or on click) but pressing any key also triggers the events of the combo box.(this is undesirable)

The following code is excuted even when any key is pressed. Any suggestions on how I can go around this problem? (get this code executed ONLY when a combo box event is triggered)

Private Sub cmbLinkInfo_Click()

'The record is inserted only if the user is inside certain range
'The range is inside the affected links table and between the columns C and F

If (ActiveCell.Row > 25) And _
(ActiveCell.Column > 2) And _
(ActiveCell.Column < 7) Then
Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 3).Value = cmbLinkInfo.List(cmbLinkInfo.ListIndex, 0)
Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 4).Value = cmbLinkInfo.List(cmbLinkInfo.ListIndex, 1)
Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 5).Value = cmbLinkInfo.List(cmbLinkInfo.ListIndex, 2)
Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 6).Value = cmbLinkInfo.List(cmbLinkInfo.ListIndex, 3)
End If
End Sub

An Event That Fires Every Time Anything Is Clicked Within A Userform?

Apr 12, 2014

Is there an event that fires every time anything is clicked within a userform? I have seen the userform_Click() event however, this only works if the userform is clicked directly and not if something like an image is clicked on top of it.

Control Change Event Fires Via Unknown Trigger

Nov 17, 2007

So, I have a worksheet with a bunch of combo boxes. The code for the worksheet is below. The issue I'm having is that anytime I drag and drop a cell anywhere on the page, every single control on the worksheet triggers. VB runs through all the code on the sheet, TWICE(I used the debugger extensively trying to find a solution), and causes dozens of successive re-calculations of the entire workbook, which has a couple of tables. This happens on any cell drag-drop on the worksheet, or when I click the command button on the screen.

I have no clue what is causing this. Even more bizarre, it seems to trigger a custom function which is located in a separate module, and isn't even utilized on the worksheet in question. I guess this is because it makes the whole workbook re-calculate?

Userform Textbox Event That Fires After I Exit The Textbox

Feb 2, 2010

I need a userform textbox event that fires after I tab or click out of the textbox. Going by the list of options:Beforedragover, BeforeDroporPaste, Change, DblClick, DropButtonClick, Error, Keydown, Keypress, keyup, mousedown, mousemove, mouseup.

I can't figure out which one will do what I want. The change event happens instantaneously which doesn't work. I need to fire off the event when my focus leaves the textbox.

Workbook_beforeclose Fires Twice

Jun 29, 2007

I've been trying to figure this out all morning, and it's giving me a headache. I'm trying to write some code in the WorkBook_BeforeClose module as shown below:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim ans As Integer
ans = MsgBox(prompt:="Do you want to save the changes to " & ThisWorkbook. Name, _
Buttons:=vbInformation + vbYesNoCancel, Title:="X2O")

Select Case ans
Case Is = vbCancel
Cancel = True
Exit Sub
Case Is = vbYes...............

As you can see, I show a message asking the user if they want to save the workbook or not. Clicking the Cancel and the Yes buttons work fine. However, the No button causes the message to be shown again. If I then click No the second time, the workbook closes!

Workbook Open Events Fires Once. Subsequent Opens Causes Error

Oct 3, 2007

I have a program that uses the Document Open event to display a custom form. This program is being used on about 50 computers for the past 8 years with no problems. One user has a problem now. They can open the program once and the code fires. But when the user tries to open the same file a second time, the "Microsoft Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close" dialog box is displayed. The document that is recovered has no vba modules and no code in the Document open event. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Office Professional. Shut down all firewalls.

Preventing Multiple Event Triggers

Sep 15, 2014

I have a worksheet with a Change Event and a Selection Change Event.

When a cell is changed first the Change Event triggers and after that the Selection Change Event Triggers.

I have implemented a solution whereby I set Application.EnableEvents = False so that the 2nd Selection Change Event does not trigger.

However, the problem is that I need to turn EnableEvents back to True so that it can continue monitoring for events.

Is there a way to either only allow 1 event to trigger? Or is there a way to turn the Events back on after a pause of a 1 second or so?

Monitor Multiple Cells For Input Event?

May 7, 2014

Below is code. However, I need this to happen for multiple cells.

The cells that I need to monitor are B10, B12, B14.... through B96 and F, J, N, R columns for the same rows. The input values will be stored in cells AM10, AM12, AM14 .... through 96 for the B column results. Then for F, J, N, R will be AQ, AU, AY and BC respectively.

Additionally, when B10 has an input, and the user input box displays for the number of hours, there is a cancel button available, but it does not work. How can I exit the loop and clear contents of B10 if the "Cancel" button is clicked in the dialogue box.

Open Another Workbook For Multiple Userform Event Use.

Sep 12, 2009

The use of this userform is to find a customer reference number. Im using two combobox's and a textbox.value that are populated from another workbook.

Though the way it is at the moment it opens the workbook and closes the workbook every time a new value is set to one of the combobox's.

I want to open the workbook on the useform initialize and do everthink the useform need from it. And then on the userform terminate close the workbook. Or somehink to this equlivent so this process of finding the customer referance number goes faster.

Multiple Textboxes - Common Event Procedure

Apr 27, 2006

I have a userform with about 20 textboxes. I would like to use the same "data validation" procedure on each textbox as the user enters data into the form. I'll use the exit event to trigger the validation. As the user moves from one textbox to the next, the data will be validated; if it's out of range, the user will be prompted to correct it.

Is there a way to have a common event procedure so I don't have to have a separate procedure for each textbox individually? I know I can put the actual validation code in its own procedure and then call it from each event procedure but that would still leave me with 20 event procedures like:

Private Sub Textbox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
End Sub

Sum Times During Multiple Intervals?

Mar 18, 2014

I'm trying to determine how much time our agents are spending for their lunch/breaks during 30 minute intervals. Range A8:A200 lists the agent's names, Range B8:B200 lists their lunch/break start times, Range C8:C200 lists their lunch/break end times, and Column E lists the times (8:00, 8:30, 9:00, etc.). If an agent starts their break at 10:57 (Column B) and ends at 11:10 (Column C), the value next to 10:30 (Column E) would have 0:03:00 and the value next to 11:00 would have 0:10:00. But would need to sum all the agents which took a break/lunch between 10:30-11:00, and 11:00-11:30.

Run Code Multiple Times?

Jun 11, 2014

In this workbook Test1.xlsm under column "D" i have Po numbers. Some PO numbers are the same and some aren't. I have a specific code that creates an invoice for a customer when i hit the code however i must select a cell under column "D" in order for the code to create an invoice for the customer on that row. I usually create the invoice for all the customers of the same PO number. Sometimes the amount of invoices i have to create is overwhelming so i was wondering if it's possible that when i select a cell under column "D" that has, let's say, PO number "654" if the code can create an invoice for all customers that have the same PO number of "654"?

Moving Nth Row Right And Up Multiple Times?

Apr 3, 2014

I have essentially the same issue with my spreadsheet, but mine is a little easier. I have written code to do the first few steps. I could just use some assistance with the middle. I know my thought on the process is "the long way", but with my experience in VBA I have to keep it simple. Here is my data and then the way I want it to look. I can add a macro to make it pretty afterwards, unless your way is easier (and I understand what is happening). --Oh, I am trying to automate my inventory process.

I have a spreadsheet and i wish to move every nth cell in column A to the initial cells in the row.

Cell A2 moves to E1
Cell A3 moves to F1

Until the end and then select all and sort by column B (this would get rid of blanks and sort everything) before moving to the pretty stage.

How the data comes in. And my Final Goal.

This document is several thousand lines long. I made up the data to protect the weak. There can be duplicate usernames and vendors, but never serial numbers and computer names. Duplicates should be highlighted to be found easily and researched.

I only need to get to the middle picture. After that I can modify with what I come up with.

Worksheet Change Event Spanning Multiple Worksheets

Nov 21, 2011

I have a workbook with 33 worksheets (31 date tabs and a Month To Date and Year To Date tab)

I want to have a clickable cell on each of the 1-31 date tabs to point to the MTD

I know I could do this easily with a hyperlink but I would rather have a clickable cell.

I have achieved this on an individual worksheet using the following code

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("$R$3")) Is Nothing Then Sheets("MTD").Select
End Sub

My question is: Do I have to copy this to every single worksheets code or is there some way have all sheets read the same private sub? (I guess it negates the point of a "private sub")

Way to do this as it would make editing any changes easier than having to do it 31 times.

Worksheet Change Event For Multiple Target Cells?

Jan 20, 2014

I'm trying to run a macro anytime cells G2, J2, M2, O2, P2, S2, V2, Y2, AB2, AE2, AH2, AK2, AN2, AQ2 change.

Right now I have the below code which is working well, but I only have it set for G2. Do you know what the notation is to make the target range multiple cells?

Also, I use the xlDown command in my sorting code, but later on it reverts back to "A5:AT60"... is there any way I can remove these specific cell references? I want to avoid having to re-write the macro every time my selection shrinks or expands.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G2")) Is Nothing Then

Calling Close Event When Multiple Documents Closed

Jun 18, 2008

I'm trying to create a macro that will save backup copies of documents that have changed when a user closes them. I created an add-in and put a Workbook_BeforeClose sub in "ThisWorkbook" that saves a copy of the document in a temp location on the hard drive.

If I have three Excel documents opened and each one has changes and I close Excel (with the "big red X") it only seems to call the Workbook_BeforeClose once backing up one of the files. If I use the "Close Window" (the "little X") it doesn't call that event at all.

Is there a better event to use or a better way to backup these files when closing them or Excel?

Worksheet Change Event :: (ByVal Target As Range) Event In Module After Creating A Sheet

Is there a way to write a Worksheet_SelectionChange (ByVal Target As Range) event in module after creating a sheet in VBA? I constantly delete a sheet, then repopulate it with a new one that is empty, but I need to add some code that happens if they should change a particular cell. It worked when I ran it on a worksheet without refreshing, but as soon as I cleared and repopulated the sheet, it was gone. Is there a way to preserve this?

How To Get Values Out Of Column B For A Value In A (multiple Times The Same Value)

Mar 14, 2014

I have a excel sheet with several columns and 2700 numbers in each column. In the first column there is standing from witch quarter to witch quarter of the day the values are (and this for several days in one sheet). I want to take the average of all the first quarters of the day, the average of all the second quarters of a day,.... But if I would do that by just sorting my table on the quarters and than manually make the formullas I would need to give in 800 formules. (way to much)

So I would like to find an easier way to take the average of column B for the valeus were A is "00:00 -> 00:15" (this are avery time 28 numbers in the month february)

In attachement you can find an example of my problem, although it isn't with real values.

Matching A Value That Appears Multiple Times

Apr 26, 2006

I have 2 columns with data in them, basically representing a gaussian distribution. Column A has the "X-axis" values and so is uniformly ascending with no duplicates. Column B has the "Y-axis" values and increases up to a maximum and then decreases again (this is data from an instrument and so its not completely smooth but is close). An example is below.

0 4
1 8
2 16
3 27
4 50
5 27
6 16
7 8
8 4

What I would like to do is get the 2 Column A values where the corresponding column B value is half of the max (in the case above, 25 is not available so the closest is 27). I am trying to calculate the difference between these values, so in the example, I would have 5-3. Is there a way to do this?

Find And Replace Multiple Times

Nov 9, 2012

I currently have two lists I am working with. One is a big mix of many different names, names which all need to be replaced.

I have another list which has all of these original names included in one column and the names which should replace those names in the column next to it.

Is there a way to go down this list and have excel find and replace every name in the sheet with its corresponding name without having to do it manually over and over?
