I am running into a seemingly random event upon executing a rather long program in Excel VBA: a square area turns gray in the left of the screen in Excel, making invisible everything under it, and affecting every sheet and workbook open. The only way to get rid of it, so far, has been to restart Excel. I thought it pertained to a faulty Office installation (XP/2002), but then it also happened on another machine (with Excel 2003) where I installed the application.
I have a very large workbook with multiple sheets and use macros to copy and paste all data as values, then delete some rows and columns depending on certain criteria. This starts at cell A1 and works right, then down.
This is then saved as a copy and distributed to a wide audience.
The problem is that when each page is opened up, the data shown is the bottom right of the whole sheet instead of the top left ( Panes are frozen for row and column headers).
I use a number of user forms and would like to dsplay them with a blank background ie not over the top of the spreadsheet. The colour of a blank userform would be nice! I do not want to make them the size of the screen.
I have searched and found a lot of references to the web browser control for a user form. I have tried and tried but all I get is a blank webbrowser control.
I have tried the navigate and navigate2 methods and other stuff that you can see that I have commented out. Also, I tried placing the line with the navigate method both before and after the userform.show method. But all I get is a blank web browser on the form.
Here is what (sort of) I have tried:
VB: Sub ShowTheForm() 'Dim myPerm As Office.Permission 'Set myPerm = ThisWorkbook.Permission
So, what's the trick. All the stuff I found searching the web implies that what I have above should work.
When I attempt to open a file I get a blank screen. If I try to close the window it asks if I want to save the file so it is must be open but not visible. Have I inadvertently clicked on an icon with which I am not familiar?
how to set up a formula that would count the number of numbers in a column, only if the cells before those cells are blank. In plain English: total the number of occurences in each column, provided the value in cellrow is the first occurence in that row starting at column A. E.G
A B C D John x x Dave x x Kyle x x Bob x x
Count would return under Column A, 1; under Column B, 1; (because row John has a value in AJohn it is ignored), under Column C, 2; under Column D, 0.
I'm looking for a formula that pulls the text from a cell unti it hits a space. I'm using the formula below but keep getting #VALUE results. B1: =LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1,1)). I know it's not that hard but can't figure it out.
my question is how to return blank cell if i have no data inputted in left cell.. or if AH9 is blank or no data inputted AI10 will be blank using this formula.. =IF(AH9<75,"A",IF(AH9<82,"B",IF(AH9<87,"C",IF(AH9<92,"D","E"))))
I am using Data Validation and I don't want the user to go past a cell without putting in an entry. When I leave the box (ignore blank) unchecked it doesn't do anything after I have protected the document.
I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.
Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.
I have three search boxes in XL , two are search from and to dates and the other is search be ref.
I can currently search by dates and ref but would like to show all records in the specified dates if the ref field is left blank.
I am using the query writer and referencing back to cells in XL. I don't use the wizard or SQL. I have tried many options and think I should be using a OR statement with a wildcard but can't seem to get the result, does the wildcard just show the blank cells in the actual data?
Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.
Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).
What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:
a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice) d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.
Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....
I am looking to remove all blanks from a table I have and move all the data left. Right now the data is by date, and some dates are blank for some players (it is a basketball sheet) and filled for others, but I want to see it by game. So I have what is in the first table below, and I want it to look like what is in the second.
I need to find a way to do conditional formatting and disabling of a cell based on a value from another cell. For instance if A1=X,Y, or Z, then B1 will get grayed out and cell entry will be disabled. This is so that when skimming over the sheet, you can tell what cells in row B you need to put info in still, and if it's grayed you'll know you don't have to put anything there (and it won't let you).
i need a code that moves down a column and for every empty cell in the column the cell to the left is cleared and then it moves on to the next cell down. the column is not always the same and will start from a selected cell, and the column will contain no more than 5 rows
I have a spreadsheet which contains 39 columns with a header row. The number of rows varies per spreadsheet. I'm running into a problem with highlighting(painting yellow) cells. Really the problem is selecting the cells to be highlighted. The macro is skipping some of my code completely and in other cases leaving some cells unhighlighted.
1. All blank cells in row AG should be painted yellow.
2. If column AF contains a cell with number 900 or greater, then the cell in AG (same row) should NOT be painted yellow.
3. All blank cells in rows AC and G should be painted yellow. Some spreadsheets may not contain blank cells.
Problem with the VB is not performing the code after the first command. It will highlight MOST of the cells in AG but for some reason it is leaving a few blank ones unhighlighted. The blank ones are usually at the bottom of the rows. I have no idea why it would miss these.
I believe the "ucase" tag is incorrect since its looking for a number but I am not sure what to put in its place and if I use something else should I dim it as ""?
I've attached an excel spreadsheet which contains a sample to this problem. I've also attached what it should look like if my code worked.
I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.
What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)
How can I print 2 selected area (highlighted area). I know there is a trick to do that. Right now I can only select (highlight) one area to print, but would like to know how to print 2 or more areas at same time
Is there a macro that will format unused rows or with no value in a given range. I have a sheet that I am using that some of the date is either added or deleted and would like to have a macro to do grey out unused rows. I am using this with a form control.
Essentially, I'm creating a spreadsheet which contains a list of staff in rows, and the months of the year as columns. It is to record certain company checks which must be done (e.g. driving licence check). When a check is complete, the date it was done is entered under the corresponding month. Certain checks (e.g. driving license) only need to be done every 6 months. What I'm trying to do is find a formula/vba to look at each row, determine where (which month) the date was entered in, and grey out the 5 months in front, meaning the next check is required in 6 months time.
Ideally, the frequency of this check is dynamic, and can reference a cell (e.g. might change to every 3 months etc).
I'm just looking to prevent users from using the print screen or the alt print screen buttons on the keyboard. I have this script that works if I use "39" (Right Arrow)but wont work if I use "42" (Print Screen Button).
I have Column A and Column B. Every row in column A is populated, but only some of the rows in column B are populated. I need a formula that copies column A if B is blank. (i.e. If B6 is blank, copy A6). Thoughts?
