Button Used For Capturing Time (Timer)

Feb 8, 2009

When reading a water meter in a large apartment building a meter reader can also click a timer (LAP) button as the meter passes preset intervals. The worksheet would record the "lap times" in separate cells which could then be compared and usage figures can be calculated, allowing the meter reader to know if there is currently a Leak or other problem before leaving the premesis.

In the attached worksheet you can see what I would like the meter reader enters the reading - the light green "Interval List" is created from that reading. The Meter reader then watches the meter clicking the LAP button each time the interval is passed, the current time is then stored to the Pink cells (Similar to the NOW() function), the times are then calculated in other cells like I did in the Blue column in this case showing elapsed time.

I have tried several ways to do this using NOW, but each time all the cells are updated to NOW not just the current cell - and the Single Button woulod be really nice so the meter reader didn't have to look away from the meter.

Capturing Data From Userforms Created At Run Time

Apr 24, 2007

I found a useful thread Creating UserForm Controls via Code. how to create dynamically scalable UserForms at run time. I'm now stuck on the obvious Part 2 that isn't included...How does one capture the values in the text fields without knowing the names of those fields. My initial thought is to use a For loop to read the values into an array, like so...

Dim ReadArray (TextFieldCount)
For k = 1 To TextFieldCount
ReadArray(k) = ?????????
Next k

If it were a simple read from a text field I'd use something like:
Set ReadField = TextBox1.Value

Time To Completion Countdown Timer

May 8, 2014

I need to list multiple items that end in, example:at time entered there is 45:14:50 = Hr:Mn:Sec to completion, and would like the date and time of completion or just a countdown to 0 would work. I will have 60 to 70 items running at the same time with different start times and lengths. Picture queueing up items at different times to complete in different length of time and I need to be ready when each item is done. I know this is an Excel forum but I also use Apple Numbers so if either one works better I'm fine with that.

In the attached file, column R is the start time that I enter that needs to be calculated to column S. When I enter an item that takes 54hrs 23min 45seconds to complete, what date and time will it be ready.

Excel 2010 :: Update Time In A1 Timer VBA Code

Jun 2, 2014

The only change I made was to change the "Sheet1" to "Journal" to match the worksheet name in my workbook.

As you close and reopen the workbook, the timer should start with =NOW() in A1 (formatted as "HH:MM:SS") and count up with the current time until you close the workbook.

I use Excel 2010, could that be the problem, that I copied a VBA code for an older version of Excel???

Question: What exactly is a regular module, do I use Module 1 for the first portion of the code or place it in ThisWorkbook?

Real Time Countdown Timer Function With Ticker

Aug 23, 2008

I'm playing a game that requires me to keep track of money that is increased by a variable amount (pre-calculated and in a cell) and in a fixed time interval of 51 minutes weather I play it or not so I want to be able to keep track of the progress of the money gain outside of the game.

So, I need to know the macro coding for a real time counter that will increase the total money amount in one cell based on the variable income (declared in another cell) in the 51 minute intervals.

now... I also need excel to keep track of the value increase even if excel is closed (by the difference in time from when excel was closed last).

Excel 2010 :: Progress Bar With Countdown Timer And Elapsed Time

Aug 16, 2012

I have a macro that runs through about 40,000 records which can be quite time consuming. I currently have a status bar that shows the percent of work complete, but I'd like to add something that shows an estimate of how much time is remaining and how much time has passed. Below is the first loop in my code that uses the progress bar. You'll see that I modified the progress bar to include "Label 2" which shows the current record of the total record count, I'd like to add "Label 3" to show something like "2:30 elapsed, 1:15 remaining".

I'm using Excel 2010 on Windows 7 (64 bit).

HTML Code:
Sub IdentifyGS()

POData.Activate
For CurrentRow = 2 To LastRow

Excel 2007 :: Start Timer After Workbook Open For Certain Amount Of Time

Dec 28, 2013

I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.

VB:
Private Sub CBReset_Click()
Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double
T = Timer
Do
E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs
M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60)
S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)

Start/Stop Timer For Hours Worked To Include Break Time

Oct 15, 2007

I have a timesheet where user updates start and end time for various tasks.

I have placed a time capture button in the excel sheet (which is simply a macro saying =now() function)

The user clicks it before starting and after finishing the task. The start and end times are captured in adjacent cells.

If the user starts the work, and goes on a lunch break say for 20 min, comes back finishes the task and captures end time, the time difference will not consider break time which is non productive.

How can I incorporate something like 'pause' option so that before he goes for lunch he can temporarily pause the time.

One-time Use Button

Feb 13, 2009

Is it possible to add a button to a spreadsheet that "self-destructs" after it is run for the first time? We have several files that compile the results of our testing and analysis that get sent off to various departments for their responses. I want the button to lock/protect the sheets/workbook, add several formulas and perform those calculations, and then delete itself upon completion so we can send the file off the respective department head for their response.

We already have the code for the formulas and to protect the workbook, just wondering about the self-delete part.

Capturing Password ...

Apr 27, 2009

First, I know passwords are easy to break. The point is only to keep the average Excel user in a dept of 3 from accidentally damaging the data.

Normally I hardcode passwords to view xlveryhidden sheets.

But this workbook is for a dept head who has standard password(s) he uses to open or edit a file. I would like to capture these passwords and make it the same password(s) to view a hidden sheet.

This way if he ever changes the password to open/edit it will automatically change the password to view the hidden sheet(s).

Capturing The First Change In A Formula

Feb 16, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that monitors the opening time of some stocks. In the
morning before trading starts it looks like this:

StockTIME
QQQQ-O2/15/06
AAPL-O2/15/06
GOOG-O2/15/06
CSCO-O2/15/06
SPY-A2/15/06

When trading starts, the TIME value records the time of the last trade, thus
the first time will represent the time of the first trade - I am trying to
capture this time value. The problem is that if another trade occurs, the
TIME value updates to the time of that last trade. The TIME value is fed by a
DDE link from a data source.

Is there a way to capture the "first" change in the TIME value ?

Progress Bar Capturing Entries?

Feb 13, 2012

I have a worksheet which counts the entries of some orders via a barcode scanner.

What i would like to have is a progress bar showing graphically the percentage of completion of the progress.

For example in an 8 hour shift , 120 orders should be completed ideally.

The progress bar should show the actual status based on time and entries.

If the orders are processed on time the progress bar is green otherwise is red.

Capturing And Pasting Results

Feb 12, 2008

I have an excel model that cycles through several times and each time, changes the values in certain cells. What I want to do is to continuously add the values of each cell in my range and then paste the results on another worksheet.

My range of cells is B23:E93.

Say I want to run my model 3 times. I want to do the following calculation for each cell in my range and then paste the results:

First B23 = B23 (first value output)
Second B23 = New B23 + First B23
Third B23 = New B23 + Second B23

I then want to copy the results from the final run onto another worksheet named "All Resources." The range here would be B2:E72.

How To Launch At A Specified Time Without Someone Pressing A Button

Nov 30, 2007

Is it possible to launch Excel at a specified time without someone pressing a button?

I'm working on a network which has disabled Scheduled Tasks. The purpose of this request is to launch Excel in the early hours of the day so that a macro would run and update the data from a data source. The macro works brilliantly, but I without anyone in the office at 2am to open Excel, I need to find a way to launch it automatically.

Also, I don't have permissions to install programs or add-ins from the Internet. It doesn't leave me with many options, but I'm just wondering if there's a trick that has so far eluded me.

UserForm - Only One Button Toggled At A Time

Dec 31, 2008

I have made a UserForm with 12 buttons on it to switch between 12 different Worksheets and I am attempting to have the button pressed down only when the sheet is active. The buttons all work fine and go to the right sheet, but will stay toggled when I click on a button for another sheet.

I have tried to create a seperate macro that makes all the ToggleButton.Value = False, but this just activates the ToggleButton_Click() macro each time and loops on and on. Is there a way to change the value of the toggle without initiating the click subroutine? Do I even want to use ToggleButton?

Capturing Data From Userform To Worksheet?

Aug 30, 2012

I have a macro that is starting to get pretty intensive and beyond my knowledge base. Currently is takes the needed data from sheet(1) and copies it to a newly created "Sheet2" in a specific format. Once the macro is done formatting "Sheet2", it shows both userforms for the next part of this macro.

One userform (UserForm1) is for inputting barcode data into rows on "Sheet2" (this is where I am running into problems). I cannot get the userform to capture the captions to the needed cells in "Sheet2".

The other userform (UserForm2) is for a visual representation of the error check. This will check for differences in Sheet2's column data. If a row's data in Sheet2 doesn't duplicate as expected it will flag RED and an image to show in the associated frame in UseForm2.

UserForm1:
Plate ID (PlateIDLabel goes to "PCR Plate ID" header column in Sheet2)
Plate Location (PlateLocationLabel goes to "PCRLocation" header column in Sheet2)

Currently the userform is coded to recognize prefixes for correct input into label textboxes.

Attached it the workbook with macro/userforms.

VB:
Option Explicit
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Sheets.Add.Name = "Sheet2"
ActiveSheet.Move _

HLOOKUP - Multiple Matches - Capturing All?

Dec 15, 2005

I have some values representing daily values belonging to a particular Week number. The week numbers appear from 1 to 6 times in the top row. I would like to get data pertaining to a particular week number (as entered in B10) from the array in the area shown in Light Yellow and from there, I would do some minor calculations to arrive at the required data..

In the sample, the week number 3 appears 3 times and is shown here. The first value I am able to get using HLOOKUP. Getting subsequent occurrences are the issue I have. I thought I will try and use OFFSET function based on the cell reference of the first occurrence of the week number to obtain the rest. I have not had any luck in that.

Basically, my issue is how to use HLOOKUP to obtain if the Lookup value is repeated in the range. Or should this be tackled using some other route?

The week numbers appear in a sequence and are not placed at random.

Capturing Keys When Workbook Is Open

Oct 19, 2009

How do I capture keys sent to Excel when my workbook is open / active?

I know when you write a macro you can assign a shortcut key combo to it, such as "Ctrl-Shift-s", but I can't find where / how Excel stores that information, and can only presume it is stored away not accessible to the coder, (ie. not by going via the macro -> properties boxes).

My issue is I want to capture a key combo, then from that call a function passing a variable dependant on the combo pressed, eg:

Capturing All Randbetween Values In Different Cells

Oct 2, 2011

I need the solution for the following:

1. Currently I have a randbetween() formula in cell B2.

2. Cell A1 = B2 (Every time the value in B2 changes so does the value in A1)

Instead, I want that every change in value in cell B2 is captured in progressive cells.

For example:

First iteration in cell B2, value is entered in A1.

Second change in value in B2, value is entered in A2, while value in A1 remains unchanged and so on and so forth.

Capturing Lowest Value Recorded In Data That Changes?

Jan 3, 2012

I run a golf handicapping system that utilises excel quite heavily to record a LOT data over the course of a season. In essence we have in excess of 50 players who play once or twice a week and I record their Stableford scores (dont worry that's a golfing phrase but it is basically how they performed that day) and adjust their golf handicap accordingly - all in XL.

So - a player may start the season with handicap of 20 but over the season this will vary up and down as each score is recorded. A player may well play in excess of 50 rounds in a season.

I currently record the player's starting handicap in one column and in the next column appears the freshly calculated new handicap after a new score has been entered. The column containing the new handicap overwrites the old handicap value each time it is recalculated.

All I want to do is to create a 3rd column that records the lowest handicap value attained during the season. So for each player I guess it should take the newly calculated handicap and decide if it is lowest it has 'seen' in that column and if it is record it.

Capturing Dirty Cells In A Range

Wanted to know if there is an easy way to iterate through dirty cells in a range or I am going to have to do some before and after comparisons? For before and after I was thinking of having the start range address and then everything is an offset from here.

Capturing & Using Number Of Copies To Print

Jul 16, 2006

I would like to create a macro to enable a user to enter the number of copies to print, and then print that number of copies of a predetermined range in a spreadsheet. My InputBox routine works fine, but I don't know how to use the info I just captured. The code I have so far is as follows, but I guess I donít know where this number is stored, or how to use it in a print statement. Needless to say, this routine doesnít print the number of copies entered by the user.

Sub TestPrint()
' Ask user to input the number of copies to be printed.
Dim Message, Title, Default, MyValue
Message = "Please enter the number of copies to print" ' Set prompt.
Title = "Number of copies" ' Set title.
Default = "2" ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
MyValue = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)
Sheets("PaidOut").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True
