Change Custom Cell Styles

Oct 1, 2009

I have a workbook in Excel 2007 with several sheets imported from other workbooks. In the course of this, one of them has brought several custom cell styles with it and I would like to be rid of them, as they clutter up the cell styles gallery.

Most of them were cooperative and deleted simply enough by right-clicking and selecting 'Delete', but one is proving a little more stubborn.

When I mouse over it, it plays the 'alert' noise (the 'bink' you get when Excel wants to alert you to something) and then nothing happens. There is no noticeable change to text or cell, as there should be thanks to 2007's previewing ability. Trying to apply the style results in the message

"Style '
386grabber=VGA.3GR
' not found."

(the line breaks are present in the message and seem to be because the style name actually has character returns as the first and last characters).

Is there a way to delete this style, or am I going to have to resign myself to having an annoying noise every time I try to apply styles

Changing Between Two Custom Styles?

Mar 27, 2013

I am trying to get a phone number column to change between two custom styles. I have added the styles in as:

Mobile: 0000 000 000
Extenstion: x00000

I need column E5 down to change between the two if < 6 or >5 numbers are used in a cell to change to the correct style.

Does this can be done just using the styles or vba coding is required.

I already have some vba to add the date into column B if column A is altered.

Excel VBA - Change Marker Styles For All Series Excluding Unmarked Lines

Aug 4, 2014

I have a macro that changes the marker style for all series in a scatter chart, chosen through an input box.

[Code].....

It works nicely, but I want it to exclude any series that do not have markers (i.e. lines used to indicate a reference value). I've tried an if-then statement after the With statement, but it will add markers to any line series:

[Code] ......

Basically, if the series has markers or line+markers, I want it to change the marker style, otherwise do nothing with the series.

Conditional Formatting Using Styles

Oct 31, 2006

I know OpenOffice can do it but I can't seem to figure out if Excel can or not. I have various styles defined to include the font, color, pattern, etc. which are setup the way that I want. I also have Options>View - Zero Values.", "style="background: #FFFFFF;padding: 2px;font-size: 10px;width: 550px;"");' onmouseout='GAL_hidepopup();'>formatting.htm" target="_blank">conditional formatting formulas set where I want. All appears to be working well. What I want is that the result of the conditional format uses the style reference rather than the absolute reference by changing the format in the conditional dialogue box. Can Excel handle that? If so, how?

Different Styles Of Command Buttons

Aug 23, 2007

I was creating command buttons and had trouble using the linked cell. I found an example on the forum here but the command buttons seem to have many different behaviors. On the attachment, "Button 1" and "Button 2" are the ones I created in Excel 2003. "Button A" and "Button B" are from an example I found on the forum.

1 and 2 can only be edited on design mode, and have the formula "=EMBED("Forms.OptionButton.1","")" by default (which yields an error when exiting the formula field). A and B can be edited at any time, and have an extra tab ("Control") on the Control Format dialog. This seems to allow the linked cell to be set and function pretty handily. Are A and B from a different version of Excel? Auto Merged Post;Here's the attachment:

Macro To Set Border Line Styles

Jan 26, 2007

I have a range of data (not a named range, just a selection) and I typically want:

- the top 2 rows to have a heavy border on the left, top and right sides with a light line on the bottom.

- On the bottom line, I need a heavy line on the left, bottom and right sides.

- The body in between needs to have heavy lines on the left and right sides with dots for all in between.

The top 2 lines show titles, the bottom line is for totals and the body in between shows the data.

I've made 3 separate macros that do each part but I'm hoping that they can be integrated into one.

Custom Sort Change Month Order

Jul 10, 2014

Is it possible to do a custom sort on a column so that I can change the order the way the months are sorted. The order I'm looking for is:

October
November
December
January
February
March
April
May
June
July
August
September

Also the format for the cells in that column is 01-Jan, I don't want to see the year because I enter and sort the date as if the year doesn't matter so it automatically registers as 2014, if that makes sense. Basically I want that order of the months regardless of the year.

Excel 2003 :: Border Line Styles Not Working

May 20, 2012

(Excel 2003, using Format/Cells)

I have selected a range of multiple rows and columns. I can change the alignment, cell color, where border lines appear, and the color of border lines.

However, I can not change the border line style. No matter what style I select, when drawn on the sheet it apppear as a thin solid line. I've tried all the dashed/dotted line options, but they appear to have no effect.

Ultimately, I want to color alternating rows of cells, and (since coloring hides grid lines) I want to add border lines the same color and style as the hidden grid lines.

Custom Format Does Not Work - How To Change Column B2 To Hours And Minutes

Mar 3, 2013

The attached file contains data. In Worksheet 1 (and also 2 and 3) column B2 shows day, month, year, hours, minutes and seconds. I was hoping to convert this to just Hours and Minutes, but all the usual methods using Custom Format does not work. This leads me to think that its in TEXT format. How can I change Column B2 to Hours and Minutes?

How To Make A Custom Conversion Program / Formula Between Custom Data

Feb 15, 2014

I'm trying to make a converter between about 8 various types of values. These are not units like Km or miles or something like that, but rather numbers that represent a specific "hardness value" on a variety of scales (to name a few: HRC, HRA, K)

What I've been doing so far is plotting the two types against eachother and then getting the best trendline I can so that I can use that formula to convert between the two with relative certainty. (for example, when plotting HV vs HRC my fourth order polynomial trendline with an Rsquared of 1 is y=0.0001x4 - 0.0188x3 + 1.0768x2 - 20.709x + 350.69)

My questions comes up where I was hoping to make a window or box of some sort allowing the user to input a numeric value, then selecting the Input units and the hopeful output calculated units, and have the box spit back to the user the conversion.

Custom Transferable Toolbar Of Custom Functions

Sep 2, 2008

I want to be able to create a range of VBA userforms to quickly perform long tedious tasks. I want these userforms to be accessed from a nice tidy toolbar.

I have done this and it looks nice and works well. What I would like to be able to do is have my custom toolbar of userform controlled functions be transferable so that if someone else wants my toolbar and attached functions they can install it easily much the same way you can do with an add in.

Is this sort of thing possible or does it require them to manually install all my userforms, modules and toolbar? If it is possible what sort of things should I be looking at?

Worksheet Change To Function To Add Text To Cell Which Initially Triggered Change

Jan 10, 2014

i have some existing code which is trigerred when anything is input into column c. The code then adds various information in another three columns. One of which pastes a vlookup formulae, and i would like this forumlae pasted into the column c cell which i initialy edited, in order to remove the requirement for one additional column.

The existing code i have is:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim MyText As String
MyText = Environ("username")
If Target.Cells.Column = 3 Then
With Target
If .Value "" Then
.Offset(0, 2).Formula = "=VLOOKUP(D:D,'P:TAOffshoreTAOffshoreTreasuryRecsGeneralCommit ID''s for control Sheet - Do not move or delete[commit ids - DO NOT DELETE OR MOVE.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1:$B$65536,2,0)"

[code].....

I have tried changing the offset to (0,0) or changing the offset to 'target = ', which does add in the vlookup but then the macro debugs at the 'If .Value "" Then' code?

Creating A Custom Format For One Cell?

Apr 14, 2013

I want to create a custom format for a cell for entering in "cup measurements". I want to be able to type in 5, 1/4, 1/16, etc. and have the word "cups" appear after the number in that cell. I formatted the cell to say the word cups after typing in the numbers in my cell using the code "cups".

ex: 0 "cups" works fine for whole number

so then if i change it to 0/0 "cups" is works great for only 1/8 but not 1/16 or whole numbers. Then I looked at other custom codes that already existed in my formatts so I attempted to try this code which I just kinda came up with

_(0/00);_(0);_(0/0); "cups"

well it isn't doing what I want and If I use the 0/00 "cups code and I type in 4 cups the cell then says 4/01 cups.

What does my code need to be for me to show whole numbers and and size fraction without having it look weird?

Basically i want to use a UDF to count cells in a range of a certain colour.

But i want to make it easy for the user to be able to change the colour the function counts, so i thought i could ask them to colour the cell in which the function is written.

Is there a way to tell the function to pick up the Interior.ColorIndex of the cell it is written in?

Use Application.caller.interior.colorindex
