I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.
What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.
I am trying to pause a macro on a protected sheet, select 2 adjacent cells (initially protected), utilize an existing drop down box to select a name from the list, copy the name from the list into the range of cells, then re-start the macro. I had no problem when there was just one name (see John Smith below). I tried to use the InputBox command but needed to actually type in the name.
I am running a macro that populates the same chart with variable data. I have approximately 40 sets of data and wish to pause or stop the macro to view one of the sets of data more closely. The pause option would be better but Stop option is acceptable
I have macros that often pause for the user to take some action -- for instance, to confirm that the correct cells are selected, or to delete something. Usually I use the "Stop" command, which opens the VBA editor; when I finish doing the manual action, I just resume the macro.
When writing macros for actual users, I'd like to do the same thing without their having to deal with the VBA window. Is there a way to pause and resume action and remain in the Excel window?
I've written a macro for work that will work with our billing process. After part of it has run, I'd like to pause it for the user to check a column for errors and possibly update a table to get rid of those errors, then after those errors are fixed, have the ability to continue with the rest of the code. I tried to make a message box to remind the user to look for the errors, but it wouldn't allow me to click anywhere except for on the buttons.
I would like to add a pause to the following macro so that it inserts the word CANCEL 1 second after triggering. I know I need to use the Application.Ontime function but cannot work out how to integrate it.
Code: Sub Cancel() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Sheets("Sheet1").Range("T5") = "CANCEL" Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have a workbook with several hundred row the VBA code loops through. It takes about an hour to run all the calculations. Whenever I need to pause the script I hit ESC, which works well for me, but for other users it would be nice to have a command button that halts code. Even better would be another button to resume code.
I am running a Showcase query from inside excel. I want the query to update, drop the data in excel save it and then close. The problem is that the save command is executing before the data is dropped. The Wait command pauses all processes so it won't work. Is there a way to have a minute of filler until the data is dropped so it will save?
how to interrupt VBA code, allow user modifications to a chart, and then continue the code where it left off with a click of a button. I currently have the code in place where a UserForm pops up at a specific point and tells the user to make adjustments and press OK when done. It works fine but the UserForm displays and the macro resumes when OK is clicked, but I can't figure out how to activate the chart or the spreadsheet to allow editing while that UserForm is on the screen. If only I can get excel to allow me to sleect the spreadsheet and make changes while the UserForm is on the screen, I would be set. Can anyone please help me with any options to allow editing while the UserForm is on the screen so I can edit and then click the OK when done?
I posted something similar to this over two years ago. The way I got around it at the time was to break the code into two separate subs. This time around, the code is making 17 graphs and I want to ask for editing for each one before continuing. That would be a lot of individual sections of code.
I am wanting to pause a macro to allow a user to select a cell and when the user hits enter the macro starts running again. My intention is that a user would select cell B5 or B8 or B55 and then hit enter and the cell would move 6 cells right and enter a value from the macro. The following is what I have tried and even though it allows to select a cell, it doesn't make that cell the active cell.
I recently installed Excel 2007, and have shared others' joy in searching for things on the ribbon. I tried to record a macro to insert an autoshape. Excel creates the macro, but drawing the autoshape is not recorded. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious ...
I have a spread sheet in excel that I enter a date(a1) the supplier(b1) product ordered (d1) and an order number(g1) when I record a macro to copy theses cells in to a sheet called a purchase order sheet (i.e. A1,B1,D1,G1) the macro runs and prints off the order sheet how do I get the macro to run when I fill in line (A2 etc) when I enter a new order.
This problem occurs in EXCEL 2000/2002/2003. I open a CSV file generated by perform.exe and convert the information using Data/TextToCollumns - Delimited/Colon and Finish. When i execute these steps in Excel i don´t have problem, but when repeat these steps after recording a macro (Tools/Macro/Recording Macro) occurs this problem.
After a click finish option, i receveid this message "Numero excessivo de continuações de linhas" (Portuguese message) "Excessive Continuation lines" ( translate to English )
and recording macro stop. I don´t know what happen. I attach a ZIP file with a CSV file to test and analysis.
I frequently use the record option to start off my macros. I realize this usually results in recorded events which are not absolutely necessary (recording a print macro is one that is full of excess line items). I then try and combine what I have recorded with what I have garnered from this wonderful website. If my spreadsheets are small - and I am not writing code to pass any inspections - is there a need to go back and clean up?
The code contain using Autofilter to some columns, & then copy paste to another sheet to first blank row, & sorting it by asscending in Column A. Both sheets are in the same workbook.
But for some reason, the Macro will giving the result expected if i run it step by step (by using F8 button under window VB editor). And if i call the Macro name it stoped in the middle of the process.
I incorporated more codes to the ones that were just solved from this board, but how can I make the active cell stay on A1 of sheet "hypo_tax_dropdown"? Also, I obtained the codes for removing the duplicates from macro recording, will these codes work on any machine? I noticed that it doesn't have worksheet.function
Sub Macro1() Dim X As Long Sheets("Hypo_tax").Select
I am having trouble with a project for school. The instructions are: (In Worksheet 1) Type Your Name. Now, begin recording a Macro. Copy and Paste your name from Worksheet 1 to Worksheet 2. Fill in the background and edit the font. End.
When I try to record macro, the small toolbar which has two buttons "stop recording" and "relative reference" do not appear. I need to turn relative reference on. Can you please guide me how can I make it visible to turn relative reference on?
I'm trying to create a macro using Tools/Macro/ Record a New Macro. I need to record in the relative mode, but I cannot find the Relative/Absolute button. I have gone to Tools/Macro/Stop Recording but it only allows me to stop recording. I am on excel 2002
Fixing a macro that i recorded in order to generate a pivot table on the same sheet and the same exact location every time. it seems that the macro fails every time i try to run and i'm thinking it has to do with the table reference. Again i want the table in the same sheet and the same location every time i run the macro. this is the recorded code so far.
I am working on this project that involves opening several Excel spreadsheets and copying the data into a new workbook. The problem is that the names of the various worksheets I want to copy change every day - it always reflects the date. I open 7 workbooks, go to the sheet named (for example)01.17.07, copy a static range and then paste it to a new workbook.
Is it possible to record a macro and use a cell reference in the destination workbook (the one I want to copy to) to tell it which worksheet to copy? So, for example, I would type 01.17.07 in cell A1 of the new workbook and the macro would look for the sheet named 01.17.07 when running? Then tomorrow, I could type 01.18.07 and it would know to look for a different sheet?
I'm trying to record a macro that is using vlookups to get data from another data sheet, this data sheet will update each month - the old data moving back a column (so the new data is filled into the same column each time).
However, on the sheet where i am recording the macro, i need the data to fill in the next column each time.
I'm trying to record a macro that calls up the saveas dialogue and uses a filename from a cell (it's the w/c date). I can start recording the macro, open the dialogue box and copy the contents of the cell but i can't get it to paste as the filname.
What I'm trying to achieve is to allow users of a muli-sheet workbook to be able to click on a 'save' button on any sheet and have the workbook save with a filename which includes the current week commencing date. This way all the weeks changes will be in just one file and from the following monday a new file will be started the the old one left alone as an archive.
