Call Macro When Clicking In Specific Cell From Personal Macro Workbook
Aug 13, 2014
This is the code I use to call a macro when the macro Im calling is in the same workbook.
However, I would like to call this same macro when using another workbook. I copied the macro "Clearformating" and pasted into a personal macro workbook module. However when I add this code to the sheet tab it will not run the macro.
I am about to write a small macro to do a iteration calculation. I would like though for the user to select me a cell so that the macro uses the value in that cell to start calculations. Now, what I think would be the problem is how do I code a "time" or notice an action such as clicking in a cell to continue with the macro.
Would it be by inserting a pause in the code of a certain time so that gives the user time to click and wait for the code to start? If so, how would much time is enough? Is there another thing that could restart the code such as "noticing a click in a cell" command in VBA?
I have a Sheet sheet1 and I want to run a macro when the cell D2 in Sheet1 is equal to 10,7,5,and 3. I only want this macro to run when those values are reached the macro then puts the data onto a sheet called wps. The macro is run as a module and is a sub macro.
I am just learning a bit of VBA and developed a macro that runs fine if I used it on any workbook but when I imported it to personal.xls and tried to run it, it runs on the personal.xls itself. I tried inserting a line that activates worksheet(2) but that didn't work.
In Excel I've always had a Personal file come up when Excel was opened. It may have accidently got closed??? The personal file does not open with Excel and I am unable to find it. It is required to run macros correct?
There are two macros that i'd liek to add to my personal macro workbook upon startup of excel.
i tried to do them without coding but it appears that some actual coding is necessary.
1) i'd like to be able to select any # of cells anywhere on the page and hit ctrl+shift + n and have all of those selected cells read #N/A (the forumula is =na() )
2) i'd like to be able to select any number of columns (i do finance/econ research so all data is in chronological order from 1960-present along the columns. i.e. each variable is a column vector.) and be able to hit ctrl+shift+b and have VBA make a chart in a new sheet with my default settings
i've tried to do these but recording the macro hard codes the select cells for 1) and always runs into weird problems for 2).
I need to copy several macros from the Personal Macro workbook to a new workbook that I need to take to another computer. I need to be able to run the macros on that computer. I can only record macros and make minor changes in the VB editor. I do not know VB code.
I have a macro that is designed to paste a row of formulas into each Subtotal line on a 30,000+ line spreadsheet. I have specified the formulas that I want to paste in the named range "formulas". The macro below worked fine for about 3000 lines, then threw the error Run-Time Error 1004: Paste Method of Worksheet Class Failed on teh line ActiveSheet.Paste. I thought it had just bogged down my computer, so I added teh ScreenUpdating and Calculation lines, but they made no difference. I also tried reducing the range to just a couple thousand lines, which also made no difference. I also have found some suggestions on this forum and others for this error.
In addition to it working fine for 3000 lines, then failing, there are a couple other weird things. One is that on the line in the spreadsheet that threw the error, the formulas were pasted in up to column AX, leaving columns AY through CR blank. The second odd thing is that this exact same macro still works on my sample data spreadsheet (which only has around 50 records).
Sub FormatTotalRows() Dim rCell As Range Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual Workbooks("latest.xls").Activate Range("formulas").Select Selection.Copy For Each rCell In Range("A3040:A5000") If Len(rCell) > 0 Then rCell.Activate ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2).Select ActiveSheet.Paste End If Next Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have created a custom menu and saved it as an .xla, one of the functions on the menu is to open up a workbook from a file path. The second option on the menu is to run a macro from the custom menu that is saved in this opened workbook.
Is it possible to write a code that will go off and find this macro from this open workbook?
The reason I wanted to do this is so the user has two options to enter data from however I didn't want to copy the macro over from the original workbook as in time the workbook will be updated
I am looking for a macro that i can store in my personal.xlsb. what i need is pretty much is something like this
private sub workbook_open if workbook.name "inventorysummary.csv" then application.run "personal.xlsb!capacity" end sub
I only need it to run just for this file and i cannot place it in the file due to it gets replaced every day. Which if it didn't get replaced. I know how to do auto opens when the file stays the same I am just unsure for this.
My question: Is it possible to write a code that calls the macro with the name specified in a particular cell? Right now I have some AutoFilter going on making a list that has numbers 1, 2, 3... I also have alot of macros named Search1, Search2, Search3... So I can make a cell, say A28, that combines "Search" with whatever number is in Column C, row 29:
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 data in 2 different workbooks, and I need to transfer all data in 'Jx_ex1' to sheet1 in the 'template' workbook, and all data in 'Gr_ex1' to sheet2 in 'template' workbook. All data should be transferred to the same cell numbers, from A1 to Y5000. I actually have loads of workbooks to transfer to the template but if I have an example with the two then im sure I can work out how to modify it. All files will be in the same folder.
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:
I'm using a CALL Macro to split up a HUGE macro into different pieces:
Code: Sub RSLDASHBOARDV2() 'Macro recorded 12/14/2010 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D. 'Last Updated 7/10/12 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D. 'Do Not Modify Code Unless Given Proper Privileges to do so. Dim APPSPD As Worksheet With Application .ScreenUpdating = False .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
The first few macros dealing with page setup and what not work fine but when it hits the Pivot table code for the STATSPIVOT macro it errors out stating: "Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the PivotItems property of PivotField class' at this point in the code:
Code: objField2.PivotItems( _ "TRC").Position = 1 objField.PivotItems( _ "MEDCO MAIL OR AOB").Position = 2
When this macro is not split up it worked fine as written. Am I overlooking something in the Call Macro's code or is there a variable I'm not aware of. I have included the Pivot Table code that errors out as well.
Code: Sub STATSPIVOT() 'STATS PAGE BASED ON STATS DATA TAB Sheets("STATS DATA").Select Dim objTable As PivotTable, objField As PivotField ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("STATS DATA").Select Range("A1").Select
I have several macros set up as modules in my personal.xls. There is one particluar macro (for purposes here I will call it "SourceMacro") which I use repeatedly in other macros (also stored in personal.xls). What I have been doing is copying the code from SourceMacro and pasting it into other macros.
I understand that I can actually run the SourceMacro without pasting the code by using a run command. I have inserted the following code into one of my other macros, but get an error message saying that the SourceMacro can not be found. (I have checked spelling carefully.)
Run "Personal.xls!SourceMacro" Excel 2003 / Windows XP
how to run some VBA code (written by someone else, unfortunately) only when clicking once in cell A1, and not run in any other cell. This is being run in Excel 2010. The code I would like to run in this manner is below, and currently will run when the user clicks on any cell in the worksheet it is applied.
[ Option Explicit_________________________________________ Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) 'If IsDate(Target.Cells(1, 1).Value) Then Set DatePickerForm.Target = Target.Cells(1, 1) DatePickerForm.Show vbModal Cancel = True 'End If End Sub ]
I have the following code pasted into the worksheet module which used to work fine but no longer does. I didn't touch the code, it just stopped working.
Private Sub WorkSheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.Address Case "$A$16" Select Case Target Case "Custom Color 1": Call CustomColorInput1 Case "Custom Color 2": Call CustomColorInput1 Case "Custom Color 3": Call CustomColorInput1 Case "Custom Color 4": Call CustomColorInput1 Case Else: End Select Case "$A$17" Select Case Target Case "Custom Color 1": Call CustomColorInput2 Case "Custom Color 2": Call CustomColorInput2 Case "Custom Color 3": Call CustomColorInput2 Case "Custom Color 4": Call CustomColorInput2 Case Else: End Select Case "$A$18"
CustomColorInput 1-6 are the same except they input data into different cells F16-F21.
When I attach any of the CustomColorInput macros to a button it works fine. When I try to call it from the worksheet module, the data input box pops up but the data doesn't get entered into the cell. When I try to step through the CustomColorInput macros using F8, the input box pops up, I enter data and press ok. Then I continue with F8 and the debugger jumps to a custom function that I entered (below), which is not called for and is in no way related to the code.
Function PullAfterLast(rCell As Range, strLast As String) PullAfterLast = Mid(rCell, InStrRev(rCell, strLast) + 1, 256) End Function
When I close VBA, the data that I typed into the data input box is in the correct cell.
So basically, I'm getting three different responses from the offending code depending on how I call it up. Can anyone tell me what's going on?
More generally, in this and previous occasions, I've had problems with macros that cease to work for no reason that is apparent to me. What are some things that would cause a macro to stop working, without actually changing the code (other than the obvious, like referring to names or worksheets etc. that don't exist anymore)?
I have (and will be) creating a number of macro in my personal workbook, a number of which will be run from within other macro also in my personal workbook. I am creating these to be distributed to members of staff within my work. This will be done by creating a template workbook for the job to be done, and e-mailing them all a copy. Now, I can not work out how to move the macro from my personal workbook into the new template so they can be run from there? Also, the macro that access other macro have a path to my personal workbook, will this be updated automatically when they are moved, or will I need to manually change them
