i changed the shape of "Comment" box with edit shape. However when i right click the updated shape and click on Set Autoshape Default it does nothing. When I insert a new comment it is back to old shape.
The comment boxes keep changing shape and location in my spreadsheet. Some are completely smashed together, while others are extraodinarily wide. I had them all to the right of the cell they applied to; but now they are all over the place.
when i use a macro to add a comment to one of my cells, if i put in too much text the box doesn't resize itself and you can only read part of the comment. how to resize the comment box to the size of the text i put in?
Basic run down of spreedsheet. 2 diffrent sheets formated like a calendar. sheet one is to track minutes tardy for employees at work. Work sheet 2 is to document any weather or other issue that might arive to cause and employee to be tardy.
I have condintional formating set up to change the cells a diffrent color (on sheet 1) if the same day is flagged on sheet 2 as a exceptionalable day. What i want -
When i flag a day as a weather issue or other exceptionalable issue on sheet 2 i place a inserted comment with an explantion. I want this comment to auto transfer to the corrisponding cell in sheet 1 when i place it on sheet 2. I'm not sure if this is possible with Excel 03 but thought i'd ask.
I solved my problem by going to the multi-coloured MS Office Button, top left corner of the screen, then selected Excel Options there, clicked on Advanced, & deselected the 2nd from top "AUTOMATICALLY INSERT A DECIMAL POINT" ... AT 2 PLACES.
I was just wondering how I can type in a different colour. I.e. I have a document and I want to type in random cells but I always want to be typing in red, or blue etc. Hoe can I change the default text color?
Before i start and to save you time looking at my profile, i am using excel 2010. So i have one worksheet with loads and loads of Combo boxes (form control) that are linked to a cell on another sheet and that sheet uses the linked cell along with a index and match formula in one to fetch data from a range for my chart. So based on the selection of the combo box option the chart changes.
My question is how do i change the size of the text in the Combo boxes (form control)? Is there any VBA to do this? .Font.Size?
If not i don't mind changing all my boxes to Combo boxes (activeX control), but i do have over 100 so what would be the best and fastest way to change all my current Combo boxes (form control) to Combo boxes (activeX control) whilst keeping everything the same so it all still functions. Maybe some more VBA? Plus i also need to be able to change the size in the new Combo boxes (activeX control) as well so telling me how would be splendid.
I am using the following macro to creat comments based on the contents of certain cells. Everything works except the it resizes the Comment Boxes exponentially. The Last comment box in the range seems to be the default size, the next to last a little bigger, then it start getting even larger and larger until the first comment in the colomn.
Sub InsertComm() Dim RgPartnumb As Range Dim NRg As Range Set RgPartnumb = Range(Range("B2"), Range("B2").End(xlDown)) On Error Resume Next For Each NRg In RgPartnumb With NRg .Comment.Delete...................................
I wish to be able to change the default appearance of a cell's comment. Currently, the default font size is too small to be useful - is there a way of changing this setting, without reverting to a VBA tidy-up?
I have excel 2007 and I came across the following difficulty:
If I create a graph (or a chart) the default size is "Letter". However, I can switch this "Letter" to "A4" which I need and then create a template. But I always have to manually choose this template for new charts. However switching this any time I create a new chart is a rather bad way to cope with. Even clicking on set as default obviously does not cause to have A4 size for new chart, it still has got size of Letter when adding a new chart.
I assume the solution could be in XLStart templates, but it probably doesnt work for charts that you add. Or at least I didnt find any clue on the internet for this problem.
I'm currently having an issue with Clear All... which sets the font to Tahoma, size 11. Font is okay, but I have my default size set to 10. Everytime I Clear All on even a single cell, the row size increases from 13.50 to 14.25 (from 17 to 20 pixels).
I want the 2 graphs in "Graph" worksheet to change automatically when a row is inserted in "Data" worksheet . Every time i have to change the graph manually to contain the latest 20 days value. I want some offset or something which can be put in the range provided below to do the work.
Chart Data Range =Data!$A$1:$A$22,Data!$F$1:$F$2,Data!$L$1:$L$20
Legend entries (Series) - Series Name =Data!$F$1 ( this will remain constant everyday as this is a header field)
Series Values =Data!$F$2:$F$22 ( this should contain last 20 days range, for example if a next row is inserted tomorrow then it should automatically change to =Data!$F$3:$F$23)
Legend entries (Series) - Series Name =Data!$L$1 ( this will remain constant everyday as this is a header field)
Series Values =Data!$L$2:$L$22 ( this should contain last 20 days range, for example if a next row is inserted tomorrow then it should automatically change to =Data!$L$3:$L$23)
Horizontal (Category) axis series -Axis Label Range =Data!$A$2:$A$22 ( this should contain last 20 days range, for example if a next row is inserted tomorrow then it should automatically change to =Data!$A$3:$A$23)
I'm trying to create a dynamic chart title by inserting a text box in the chart title that displays the value of the last populated cell in column A. The number of rows increases over time, so I'm trying to come up with a dynamic cell reference. When I hover over the text box a tool tip appears with this text "TextBox 2" so I assume that is the name of the text box. I'm definitely open to other methods that do not use vba. It seems that none of this code can activate the text box:
Code: Sub textbox() Worksheets("Figure3-5").TextBoxes("TextBox 2").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Value End Sub
how I can change the color of the comment indicators in an Excel spreadsheet so I can tell who wrote the comment. This would help me and my secretary to be able to do our work and be able to tell who's comment it is. We are in different lacation and can't always talk to each other on the spur of the moment. If we can change the color of the comment indicator then it would be simple to be able to see at a glance who's comment it is.
I want to write some code if a cells comment changes. Worksheet change doesn't fire if you right click a cell and edit the comment and save it. Is there an event that does fire when the comment changes?
inability to set a default row height and still allow the occasional row that requires more space (i.e., one of it's cells has multiple lines of wrapped text) to AutoFit if necessary.
Say you have the data shown in NormalSettings.png in an Excel file (see attachments) and you want to have a little more room between the shorter rows, but not have them all set as big as the expanded rows. One way to do this in bulk is to select the entire spreadsheet and set a fixed row height, but this chops off any cells that require more space than your default height (see FixedRowHeight20.png). The only way to fix this is to manually scan through your sheet and individually select all rows with cells that need more room than your preferred row height and AutoFit them (good luck if your spreadsheet is any size...) . If you try selecting the entire sheet and choose Format-Row-Autofit, you're back to the crowded display shown in 'NormalSettings.png'.
My workaround to this annoying problem is this: choose a column that you're not using (I just select the very last column in the sheet by holding down CTRL and pressing the right arrow until the screen stops moving) and highlight the entire column by selecting the column header. Then increase the font size for that column...voila, even your blank rows will now AutoFit to the new font size rather than the font size you are using for your data...effectively increasing your default row height without sacrificing AutoFit capabilities. I find that using 16 as a dummy font size makes my data (which is font size 10, Arial) look nicely spaced out, but experiment and try stuff until you find what you like!
