Copy Contents Of Multiple Comment Boxes And Paste In Single Comment Box

Mar 13, 2014

how to copy the contents of multiple comment boxes and paste in a single comment box.

The big picture is that I have a number of cells with numerical values in and text in comment boxes. I want to be able to click a button to copy the contents of the comment boxes and paste them, along with the numerical value from the cell, into a single comment box, ordered by highest to lowest value within the comment box, then delete the original cells and comments.

I am quite new to VBA but have been coping quite well so far with information of the web and analysing recorded macros.

Adding Comment Boxes

Dec 19, 2006

I am trying to write a VBA macro that will go from one sheet and copy a cell's text, then go back to the main sheet and insert this text into a "comment-box" type of thing.

The box I'm talking about is where you move the mouse over a cell and a box pops up with the comment in it.

Moving Comment Boxes

May 26, 2006

Is there an easy way to move a comment box? I have a comment box on a specific cell (hidden until mouse is hovering over it). Each day when new data is filled in, I need to move the comment down to the next cell. Right now, I click on edit comment, copy the comment, then click insert comment in the other cell, paste comment....then delete the old comment. Is there a way to just move the comment down to the next cell?

Comment Boxes Were Automatically Re-sized

Jul 16, 2008

I have a document with about 300 comment boxes, and I needed to enlarge each one to make the information visibly fit in the region. I did this, and was happy.

Then I opened the file on another computer, added a few rows, saved the file, and re-opened it on this one, and all the comment boxes in the original rows (the 300 i had, not the 15 I added later) had been reduced in size and not all the text is visible. Why did this happen? Is there an easy way to re-size all the boxes without doing them one at a time?

However the user wants column R unprotected so that Comment boxes can be used, but when I protect the workbooksheet the Insert option is not available when you right click.

Print Track Changes Comment Boxes

Aug 16, 2007

Is it possible to print a workbook and have the "track changes on screen" show on the hard copy? I'm using Excel's track changes option to monitor changes to a workbook. I've selected the box "Highlight Changes on Screen". I would like the box containing the change (which pops up when you hover your mouse over the cell) to print out with the workbook so users can see what was changed when reviewing the hard copy. This is preferable to using the "List changes on a new sheet" option since it would require flipping between multiple pages.

Replace Text In Mutiple Text Boxes

Sep 12, 2007

Trying to Find a specific word and Replace with another within a textbox ( created from the drawing tool, as well as the control toolbar) The textboxes contain loads of text information.

as an example
The word "Apple" to be replaced with "Orange"

I came across this code from the archives (compliments of Dave Hawley)

Sub ReplaceTextBoxText()
Dim sTextBox As Shape
Dim wSheet As Worksheet
Set wSheet = Sheets.Add()
For Each sTextBox In Sheet1.Shapes

I've tried several variations with no results. (perhaps it's to extensive for my modest needs)

Tab Order Of Text Boxes

I have been working on an excel sheet with several text boxes that need data manually putting into them. I have set the texts boxes out in the correct order and could tab thru them perfectly in order, but then I saved, closed then reopen the document and now the text boxes do not tab in order. I have tried to rearrange them, delete them and start again but the same problem happens every time and I cannot get the tab order of the text boxes to stay in order

If Date Found In Cell Above, Put This Text In Comment

Feb 12, 2009

Cell B4 is selected by user and then runs the macro. The macro then looks UP (A3, A2, A1 etc) cell by cell until it finds the first cell that has a valid date in it and if that date is same as the date that the macro is being run pastes "This Text" into the comments section (Not replacing everything in the comments but simply adding to it.)

Column A

Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.

I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007

Sub InsertComment()
Dim rngList As Range
Dim c As Range
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim strPic As String

On Error Resume Next

Set rngList = Range("A1:A5")
strPic = "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/"
On Error Resume Next
For Each c In rngList
With c.Offset(0, 1)...................
