Clear One Cells Content When Changing Another Cell
Jan 8, 2007
I am quite a novice with excel and I am trying to get a cell to show blank when I select a drop down list value in another cell.
Cell D2 contains a validated list containing two items (Air, Vacuum).
If I select Vacuum I wish to change another cells (D4) contents to blank, D4 is also a validated list containing three items (Yes, No, BLANK) the blank is actually a blank space and not the text blank.
I can get the cell to operate correctly but if I select Air in Cell D2 and then Yes in cell D4, but then change my mind and reset to Vacuum in cell D2 i need the cell D4 to clear its contents automatically.
My Excel Vba shown below inserts time() into a cell on my sheet. Is it possible to clear this cell if time() is already into the cell. My VBA is onky entering the time() once and not insering the current time() if a change cell values after some time i.e.
With code I enter text by double clicking in any cell in a range.(column A,B,C are excleded) What I need is to clear the content of the cell adjacent to the left of the one I choose to dbl click AND the one below that. Example: I dbl click in E1 and the content of cells D1 and D2 is cleared.
I have a cell A1 in sheet2 linked cell A1 in sheet1 (simply A1='sheet1'!A1). A1 in sheet1 is a data validation drop down menu.
I want to clear the content of A2 in sheet 2 everytime the content of A1 in sheet2 changes/is updated. That is everytime the value of A1 in sheet1 is changed using the drop down menu.
I tried using a Worksheet_Change event macro (which I do not fully understand) but it won't work with a cell that updates from a calculation. It also doesn't work if triggered from a cell from another worksheet (I tried linking it to cell A1 on sheet1 in this case).
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub Range("A2").ClearContents End Sub
Any simple solution to clear the content of cell A2 in sheet2 when A1 in sheet2 updates?
I wrote some code that toggles bewtweeen the word "Yes" and the function clearcontents.
What it does not do, is if you click on cell A1 and change it's contents and you click on the same cell again it does nothing. You need to click on another cell say A2 before you can go and change A1 again.
My code is as follows:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("Documents")) Is Nothing Then On Error Resume Next Application.EnableEvents = False If IsEmpty(Target) Then Target.Value = "Yes" Else Target.ClearContents End If Application.EnableEvents = True On Error Goto 0 End If
I have created two buttons in a worksheet to navigate to two other worksheets. I would like a cell to display 'YES' automatically if one of the two buttons is clicked and or to display 'NO'. I also would like to change the colors of these cells change automatically depending on which button is pressed.
What I need to do is have a cell that will be say yellow until there is information put into this cell. The information could be in the format of text or numbers. The information would not always be the same so it would need to be yellow when there is no information in the cell and another colour or white when there is information in the cell.
I am currently working on writing a macro that clears all rows in which the cell in column F doesn't say "Sale", "Purchase", or "Tax Code Description", however, I keep receiving an error that says "Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment".
Also, I originally was deleting the rows, but I have formula's pulling from this tab and need them to not lose their reference after the macro executes.
I have a problem (I have intermediate knowledge of Excel): lets say that I have two model years for Cadillac: 2013 and 2014, and have 3 car models for year 2013 (ATS, XTS, and CRX) and two car models for year 2014 (ELR and CTS Sedan). I want to create a dropdown menu under "Model Year" that will show me 2013 and 2014. When I click on either one, a dropdown list for all car models for that year can appear in the next column under "Models". Then, for each car model, there are different characteristics that are in other columns, such as horsepower, mileage, etc...I want all of the content to stay on one line (row), but change when I click on a different model.
I use this to read cell content, add some text/characters (ie. [ and ]) and change the properties of the complete cell
Sub COMMENT() Worksheets("DVD Lijssie").Activate If ActiveCell.Value 0 Then ' Change all in to ... ... ... ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.Value & " " & "]" & " " & "[" With ActiveCell.Font .Name = "Arial Narrow" .Size = 8 .ColorIndex = 16 End With End If End Sub HOW can I change this vba-code so it leave's the content of the cell like it is and add some content with the use of let's say TexBox1 and ONLY use different font properties for the newely added content?
I have a document I was directed to fill in. I was instructed to only use a certain number of characters and then drop into another cell below it for paragraphs of text. I have now been told they made a mistake, need me to copy all the related cells for a specific paragraph and drop them into a single cell.
Can I copy the text in multiple cells, and then drop the cell formating of those copied cells and drop the content into one single cell. Either word wrapping the content or soft returns for what looks like paragraphs again?
I want to format a range of cells based on the name listed in a cell in column A (starting @A6). I currently do this manually. It is to help me visually see the line I am working with and for what person.
I am almost certain that is going to take a VBA, but I know little to nothing about setting one up.
I am making a workbook where the G column is drop-down menus that are populate a drop down on the H column. Whenever someone changes the selection of the G column I was to erase what is in the corresponding H column. I have this code that works, but I need to do this for 100 lines. Is there any way to put this into a loop instead of writing 100 if statements?
I have text in column F (cells 20 to 199) that changes automatically based on pre-determined time constraints (this is done via an IF formula). I want the 4 cells adjacent to F to clear contents when the text in F changes. For example when cell F126 changes text automatically, G126, H126, I126 and J126 all clear. If cell F99 changes, cells G99, H99, I99 and J99 clear. And so on.
The worksheet (Payments) contains a list that allows the user to input accounting transactions. Almost every input cell contains a formula or data validation enabling selection from a dropdown.
The worksheet feeds the data to 3 separate spreadsheets (Debits / Credits / VAT) and the formulas for that are contained within dynamic ranges in the other 3 sheets. A command button macro then feeds that data from the 3 sheets to the Master sheet. This all works perfectly.
After the macro is run and the data is copied to the Master sheet, I would like all of the data in the 4 other sheets to be cleared without losing the formulas and data validation, ie so that the sheets are empty and clear for the next batch of inputs.
I have created a worksheet with many calculations based on user input into several unlocked cells. I would like to create a cell that when selected, would clear the contents of this group of unlocked cells.
I have two rows of numbers, say D1 to F1 and D2 to F2. Row D2 to F2 will always have lower values.
The range below it is D3 to F100. I want the range to clear the contents of the cells in the range where:
a) the cell is > the x1 cell above it
OR b) the cell is < the x2 cell above it
If it is = or between the two cells, the value stays.
If D1 thru F1 is 4, 5, 7 and D2 thru F2 is 2, 4, 3, then: D3 is 5, it is cleared E3 is 4, it stays F3 is 5, it stays D4 is 2, it stays E4 is 1, it is cleared F4 is 9, it is cleared Etc
Basically, the cell in the range looks up its own column, compares itself to x1 and x2 in that column. If it's greater than or less than, then it clears the contents, if not, the value in the cell stays.
I'm trying to create macro that will clear the contents of the cells in the 4 columns to the left of a cell that = 0 %, as well as the cell that = 0%. For example, if cell F13 = 0 % then the contents of B13:F13 would need to be cleared. The range in which data is being pasted into is B13:F27.
