Check Before If Chart Object Exist

Nov 11, 2008

I wrote a macro that selects 3 charts existing in a sheet and sets the axes to auto scale option. The charts are labeled Chart 2, Chart 6 and Chart 7 by default, the macro selects each of then and then sets the auto scale option.

Is it possible to use 'If then' statement to check if the chart object exists ? In case they do exist then macro works on them but if not then it goes to the next statement.

Or is there any other way to check if objects exists or not, because sometimes the macro is used for old files (template) and the chart objects there have different numbers and not 2, 6 and 7. So to use macro for both templates( new and old) its better to check first. This way the macro becomes more flexible.

Pivot Chart Object: Find Any Suitable Object To Choose From To Make A Pivot Chart In Powerpoint

Mar 21, 2007

1) i have office 2003 on a laptop. within powerpoint, i can create a 'microsoft excel chart 11' object. to create a link to the excel data source, do i have to go through the odbc sql setup? it works, but i don't want my powerpoint to be dependent on some excel file somewhere. what are the other options to insert/make a functional pivot chart in powerpoint with the data also within powerpoint? the data as sheet option does not result in the chart being a pivot, it's just a plain chart. it has to be a proper object, not an image paste or a chart that updates links with the excel file open.

2) i have office 2007 on my other laptop. i can not find any suitable object to choose from to make a pivot chart in powerpoint. what's the best way to go about in 2007 version?

3) am i going about this the wrong way with the objects? should i be after vba code?

Check If Sheets Exist...if Not, Exit Program

Feb 16, 2010

finding the proper code (which will exist in a larger macros) to check to see if specific worksheets exist. Have looked at functions, Cases, On Error checks and nothing seems to do the job I need it too. Here's what I'm loooking at doing...

Background: Main job of macros is to open a source file and systematically copy and paste data from several specific sheets (8 out of 15) into 'like' sheets in a destination file. Destination file is where the macros is run from.

Before starting any copying or pasting I want to make sure the source file has all the correct worksheets. I've run into cases where users have either deleted or renamed worksheets and as a result my consolidation macros falls down. So the order of operations at the beginning of my macros would be...

- Open source file
- Check to make sure worksheets with proper names exist
- If they do exist, continue with macros
- If even one worksheet can't be found (either deleted, or renamed), then prompt user to check the source file and then stop the program.

Check Worksheet Exist, If Not Add Variable Sheet Name

Apr 16, 2007

I need to allow users to add up to seven new worksheets as required and the new sheets must be named Image1, Image2, etc. I do not want to add seven worksheets at once, only one at a time as the need arises and no new ws can be allowed after Image7 ws is added.

I have a macro to test for the existence of ws Image1, but need help on further development to add and test for the extence of the remaining sheets.

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim bTest As Boolean
For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws.Name = "Image1" Then
bTest = True
Exit For
End If
Next ws

If bTest = True Then
'Need some code here, not sure what I need

Loop Through Set Of Files And Check If File Doesn't Exist?

Feb 11, 2014

My problem is that I want to loop through a directory that contains csv files. The directory is dynamic so everytime could be a different number of files inside. I want the loop to go through each file and check if that file exists. If it doesn't to print a message that this specific files doesn't exist. Until now I got the following code:

[Code] .........

I guess I should somehow place the counter j inside the Dir path in order to check if everytime time the file[j] exists?

Filter Data - Check If Multiple Sheets Exist

Feb 28, 2013

Using VBA, I am running code that filters the data in my column "Account" on my main sheet, creates a new sheet for each account in that column then copies the filtered data to the new sheet. There will always be the same list of Accounts with the exception that there might not be data for one or more.

In that case, I still need it to create a new sheet with the account name but just have some text stating "no data available for his account".

I can find code to search if a specific sheet name exists but, in my case, I don't know which one won't have data at run time.

I was hoping I could put a static list of the expected sheet names into an array and loop through that list and create the sheet for any that it can't find.

Check If Values Exist In Range And Move Them To Another Workbook With Additional Data

Jun 9, 2014

I have 400 source files containing (among others) 8 sheets with daily results: "Fri 23", "Mon 26", "Tue 27", "Wed 28", "Thu 29", "Fri 30", "Sat 31 (if applicable)", "Mon 2".

Each sheet contains also:
State - D1
Role - D2
Staff ID - D3
Date - D4

Activity group name in column A (starting from row 8)
Activity type in column B (merged with C and D) (starting from row 8)
Activity time in columns E:GV (starting from row 8). Usually, there is none or only one value in whole range (e.g. E8:GV8). But sometimes there are two values.

Customer ID in row 6 (value appears only if time was reported in E:GV range)
CC Number in row 7 (value appears only if time was reported in E:GV range)

It's all about transferring values from all daily sheets in all files (.xls) sitting in folder C:WADFinal to one simple table (WAD_Consolidation_file.xls, sheet "Consolidated") consisted of 9 columns: Staff ID, Role, State, Date, Activity Group, Activity Type, Minutes, Customer ID, CC Number.

Additional note if two values exist in the same row they should be copied as two separate entries to consolidation file.

Activating Chart Object In Protected Worksheet

Mar 5, 2013

I have a worksheet which is used to display analysis data to the user. The sheet will be further protected with only some cells available to the user. I've used the attached code to retrieve some data from the sheet, clear a bunch of cells to reset the sheet and reset a graph (the graph itself is plotted as a log-log with the 1 to 100 on the Y-axis, hence the resetting of data to 0.5 to push it below the axis and make it invisible ready for later data dumping).

The code worked fine until I protected the worksheet. I have set the charts to unlocked using the format option in the chart area prior to locking. When I run the code though, it stops on the line indicated with the error "Application-defined or object-defined error". I've double checked and Chart 7 is the correct chart, and it is unlocked according to its format properties.


'get date of survey and equipment number for retrieving the data from the archive
dateSurvey = Worksheets("Calculation Page").Range("B2").Value
equipNum = Worksheets("Calculation Page").Range("F2").Value
'stop screen updating
Application.ScreenUpdating = False


EDIT: Oops, I've just noticed that even if I unprotect the sheet, I get an error on the .select within the seriescollection stating "Method 'Select' of Object 'Series' Failed", and the code worked perfectly before. I'm completely lost now...

Excel 2007 :: Find And Format Text Within Chart Textbox Object?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a text box within a chart tab which is populated with text values from a worksheet within the workbook. That part works fine however i want to be able to achieve the following example:

Current Text: Component Name - Notes

if there are notes against the component name i want the name to remain in black and the notes to change to blue

Aim: Component Name - Notes

If there arn't any notes then for the component name and the "-" to change to a light shade of grey

Aim: Component Name -

There are 26 components, each on their own lines in the textbox so im thinking either a loop where the cell reference is variable eg. ("CY" & i) or using the .find with a variable.

My code so far is:

Sub Chart_Notes_NTCA()
Dim i As Long, j As Long, Counted As Long, Total As Long
Dim Ans As String, Notes As String
Dim Cht As Chart

Create Macro To Chart Data With Location As Object In Active Sheet

Oct 11, 2006

I have been trying to create a macro in excel to chart a selection of data and to output the chart on the active sheet where the data was taken (as opposed to a named sheet). So basically, I have about 300 worksheets with data, and I would like to have a button on each page that automatically charts that data when clicked, and outputs the chart to the page where the macro was clicked. However, I have not been able to figure out a relative reference that will allow me to make the LocationasObject reference simply the ActiveSheet as opposed to a specifically named sheet. See my code below, which references an output to a worksheet called "Charts". Right now, all of my charts are outputting to the sheet called "Charts", as opposed to the active sheet.

Sub ConsDiscChart()
ActiveCell.Offset(29, 11).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Range("A1:B1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1:C24").Select
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlLineMarkers
ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Charts"
With ActiveChart
.HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
End With

Plot/Chart Tick/Check Marks

Apr 21, 2008

Is there any way in which I can map the tick mark labels on either the x-axis or the y-axis to different values other than the ones that are being plotted for.

For example, lets say the data is:

1 5
2 6
3 10
4 15
5 8

I want to plot these in a chart but instead of displaying 1,2,3,4,5 on the x-axis, I want to display a different column, say,


The answer is not as simple as plotting the required x-values with the y-values. I have just used a simplistic example but the thing I am trying to do has dependencies involved so I cannot simply plot the chart with the required column.

Object Library Invalid Or Contains References To Object Definitions

I'm getting the following error:

"Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found"

I wasn't getting that error last night and I'm not sure what I may have done to cause this error.

It seems to be cause by code running on one sheet of my workbook, but I'm not really sure about that. I'm still a bit of a novice at VBA.

I'm using Excel 2002 SP3 and I'm running MS XP Home as my OS.

Do you have any ideas what can cause this error and/or how to trace down the offending objects/code?
