My problem today, is actually being able to call the routines. I have tried to make a generic setup, so that each subroutine to be called is named "Macro_[number here]". So Macro_1, Macro_2 etc. By doing this I am hoping to be able to call all the subroutines using a For Each code.
Can someone please help? I am very new to vba but I have managed to write code ( multiple subs strung together with Call statements) for about 25 sheets in this one workbook. Each sheet has a command button that initiates the data maipulation that I want to accomplish on that particular sheet. It all works very well when I go to each sheet and click on the command button.
Now I want to make all of these processes run from one command button on the first sheet. All of the subs on every sheet now have unique names because I anticipated wanting to string them all together and run them from one command button. I guess you call this a module for the entire workbook, but I am still struggling with the terminalogy of all this programming, so don't know for sure.
I added the code from the second sheet/command button to the end of the code from the first sheet/command button and joined them with a Call statement. Figured I would go about this sistematically, sheet by sheet. Instantly, I got an error message " Activate method of range class failed" when I ran it. At the start of the added code, I had added something like Worksheets("Sheet2").Activate figuring that I needed to activate that worksheet in order to make the rest of the code work. That is where I got the error.
Sorry for the long winded explanation. Can someone tell me what I need to add/do in order for the code to run without error as I string together all the pieces from each sheet?
I am trying to determine if anyone has seen a problem like the one I am about to describe. I have created a huge Excel Program with multiple modules and and several macros in each module. Each macro performs a function and then hands of to the next macro. The overall program is sometimes required to go back through almost the entire process once or twice depending on the data it is handling. My problem is that at the end of the procedure, when the last macro runs and gets to the final End Sub, instead of shutting down, it starts going back through the other end subs of the previous macros. I have toggled it one move at a time and it goes from the last macro, back through each of the previous macros, following the call stack in reverse order. in some cases, it will go to the end sub, and then go through the last commands that it went through in that particular macro, repeating steps already taken and devestating the data with orders that should not be repeated. It finally will lock upwhen it gets to a place where an order is given for the macro to go someplace that no longer exist due to previous, PROPER macro execution. Has anyone here ever seen any behavior like this out Excel? The only time this does not happen is when the data the program its handling does not require Excel to repeat its travel through the macros a second or third time.
Macro which loops through a number of files and calls the same macro in each of them. Unfortunately when I add "Application.Run..." to the code, it no longer loops through the process and instead stops after updating the first file in the loop. If I remove the "Application.Run..." code and add any other code, the loop works fine and it continues through the process repeating all the steps for each file found.
Why it stops after one file when using "Application.Run..." to call the macros?
NB I have a list of path and file names starting in row 8 of columns A and C. Each file in the list has a macro called UpdateS1 and promoupdate1.
Sub C_Run_Loop_Macro() Dim lastRow As Long Dim i As Long
I want to call a macro with a varying name that is within a module with the same name.
I have a module called Test1 and within this, a macro name called test1 I have a module called Test2 and within this, a macro name called test2 etc
On another module called Test8 (with the macro called Test8), this Test8 macro will call either Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc depending on what I choose in an excel spreadsheet. So on sheet1, cell A1, there is a drop down with the options Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc.
The following works to run the macro test1 from module test1 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):
Sub Test3() Test1.Test1 End Sub
The following works to run the macro test2 from module test2 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):
Sub Test3() Test2.Test2 End Sub etc
However, if I try it so that the calling of the macro varies as below , it does not work:
Sub Test3() MacroToCall = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value MacroToCall.MacroToCall End Sub
I have a work book with 3 sheets. Sheet 1 is the main sheet and sheets 2 and 3 will use (I hope vlookup) to update 3 columns from info in sheet 1. my attempt at a vlookup call in sheet 2 is: =VLOOKUP($b3,[master_AoJ_2.xls]Sheet1!$B$3;$B$65,false)
my understanding is that: - $b3 is the cell in sheet 2 that will be updated as a result of the vlookup call. - [master_AoJ_2.xls]Sheet1!$B$3;$B$65 refers to range $B$3:$B$65 on sheet1 of master_AoJ_2. it does not work... infact I get nothing at all. when I type the call into cell $b3 of sheet2 excel thinks it is stariaght text. this is how I coded the function call =VLOOKUP($b3,[master_AoJ_2.xls]Sheet1!$B$3;$B$65,false)
so this gives a part number depending on what number is placed in O6. What I need to do know is look at 2 different cells and for each combination of numbers give a different part number. so if A1 is 2 and B1 is 3 give a certain result.
My question is about passing arguments to UserForm procedures. I've created a Main procedure. Main calls a sub procedure and returns an array. Obviously Main can now use the array. But then Main calls a sub procedure to open my userform.
All of my userform sub procedures need to use the array I created in Main. Do I have to pass the array into all of my userform procedures? Into the UserForm_Show procedure? And then again into UserForm_Initialize? And then again into ComboBox_Change? I don't understand how to give my UserForm procedures the array from my Main procedure.
I have a workbook with no data sheets showing with all actions being taken by the use of Userforms.
To make the workbook look consistent I would like to use a Userform rather than the standard MsgBox, the problem I cant seem to work around is passing the result of a Command Button back to the original proceedure.
I am trying to work along the lines of this but I am not sure where I am going wrong.
This procedure would call the Userform and then provide the next action dependant on the users choice:
Public Sub Testing() Call TestMe If Ans = Yes Then Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = "Yes" Exit Sub End If If Ans = No Then Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = "No" Exit Sub End If If Ans = Cancel Then........................
Have a bit of code to list all procedures in project to a sheet. Idea from Chip Pearson, adapted with help from Norie. List procedures in module/project Reference is set to MS VBA Extensibility. Thought solved, but trying to use now only lists one procedure in the project Namely the procedure in the module identified here :
Set VBCodeMod = ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents("mdl_comp_pl_ProcedureList").CodeModule
I tried many variations by stopping at
Set VBCodeMod = ThisWorkbook.VBProject
But receive error message
Objest doesn't support property
Sub raw_pl_ProcedureList() 'Uses reference to Microsoft VBA extensibility Dim VBCodeMod As CodeModule Dim StartLine As Long Dim Msg As String Dim ProcName As String Dim wbBook As Workbook Dim wsList As Worksheet Dim rngProcedure As Range Dim intCounter As Integer intCounter = 1 With Application .DisplayAlerts = False .Calculation = xlCalculationManual . ScreenUpdating = False.........................
I received a suspicious email from <Excel Help/VBA Help: [firstname.lastname@example.org]>. It may be nothing but I am wanting to inquiry about it's origin and content, how would I do this? I of course have received other emails from this site.
I'm trying to create a macro that will check that an Swedish corporate identification number (CIN) is correct. Swedish CIN conist of 10 numbers and are always written 123456-7890. The last number is a control digit to see if the CIN is correct. I've managed to get the macro working but I am not able to get it to work automatically. that is I want the macro to start running immediately after you have entered a companys CIN. In my template you are supposed to enter the CIN in cell A1, and I want the macro to check that immedately when you have pressed "enter". I can not get it to work. the macro works when I do it manually, that is Tools>Macro>Macro..>Run. I've read all about it here but I guess I just don't get it
I have a problem with the overreaction of my VBA function procedures. Basically, I have an input section with 1000 rows and 10 columns and an output section with 1000 rows and 40 columns. Each cell in the output section is with fomula:
I am trying to determine if it's possible to control the order of like events. In other words, if I have set up two Worksheet_Change events, can I control which one fires first? Or, as a second best, can I determine which one will fire first?
I am using Office XP on Windows XP, but I'm looking for a generic solution if possible.
If I'm starting in Sub #1 and I have turned screenupdating off, then later in the procedure I call a function that also has screenupdating off (and also back on at the end of the function), will I get a slight flicker here? I'm noticing a slight one, and I can only imagine that it's where the screenupdating is being triggered again. (removing the updating from the function isn't an option, because another procedure calls the same function & needs it turned off)
Is there a way to create a multiple dropdown (Similar to Windows Start menu) so that the user can select the item and its properties then the selections be placed into multiple cells? For example, i select wood from drop down list and i get another drop down list asking for the type of wood, I select MDF and another drop down ask for thickness. when I finished my selections, then the selected Items copy themselves into 3 different cells.
I have a drop down in (A1) cell and I select an item from it. I want (A2) cell to check the name in (A1) then call up another drop down i already made in (A2).
I am trying to add a macro to the ACCT DATA sheet, which calls one of two subs (AddCarriertoChecklist() - or - ClrPolChList() located in seperate modules). The macro should call them depending on whether "X" is entered in a cell in column "E". The issue lies in that I have macros doing a few things to this sheet already, and I am unable to tie this one in.
I have the two subs (AddCarriertoChecklist() - or - ClrPolChList()) working. I just can't seem to get them called. This small bit is how I was attempting to call them.
Below is how I currently have it tied in with the rest of the code for this sheet:
