# Combobox Text - Insert Formula

Apr 24, 2014

I have Combobox on sheet which is filled with list of time intervals (text). If I select item from combobox, I want this time interval to be splitted as text and fill one cell with start time, and other with end time - so that I could calculate time difference.

I guess this could be done by inserting formula in this start/end time cells, like :

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

I'm doing this to allow user for picking commonly used time intervals from Combobox, but also to enter other start/end time in cells for that. I cannot do that without VBA, but I don't know how to do It in VBA.

My time intervals in Combobox are all in this text format, example:

[Code] ....

How can I do that ? I can also post a sample worksheet !

## VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

## Insert Text From Once Cell Into A Formula In Another Cell

Sep 11, 2009

I built a formula that should work, but it's too long so I need to condense it.

I have three columns, column 1 has names, column 2 has a formula.

I have 15 sheets, each with a name that could appear in column 1.

If the cell in column 2, sheet 1 is Bob, I want it to pull H5 from sheet bob. That works as:

=IF(A5="Bob", 'Bob Data'!H4, "Work in Progress")

But if I build that formula for all the possible names, it's too long. Is there a way to make the formula autofill with the name in cell A5

So: =IF(A5="XXXX", 'XXXX'!H4, "Work in Progress")

## Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format

Sep 24, 2008

I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

## Coding On Change Function In Combobox And Text Box?

Jul 5, 2014

How to make it function able. Here are the details.I have a user form named UserForm1 in the user form I have a text box and combo box. Combobox is named as ComboBox1 and text box is named as TextBox1.

Along with the above 2 fields in form, I have 2 labels, Label2 & Label6.

TextBox1 contains date (which user can either type or chose form calendar), and ComboBox1 will have Employee ID that needs to be choose. Upon selecting both, my Label2 caption should have employee name & Label6 caption should have shift time.

By using formulas in excel I have employee name in Sheet2 cell b2 and shift time in Sheet2 cell b3. Upon change either in ComboBox1 or TextBox1, I want data in Sheet2 cell b2 be the caption of Labe2 and data in Sheet2 cell b3 be the caption of Labe6.

What is the code to get this done, if either of them is blank, then label caption should be blank.

## Dropdown Or Combobox With Static Space Between Text

Jan 13, 2010

I have a set of date of different lengths that I would like in a dropdown or combobox in a grid like fashion. Example

Apple, Banana, Orange, Kiwi
Mangos, Pineapple, Passionfruit, Guava

and I am trying to get it into the dropdown/combobox as

Apple,----Banana,-----Orange,-------Kiwi
Mangos,-Pineapple,-Passionfruit,-Guava

(without the dashes, the forum does the same thing excel does)

The data is of varying lengths, and the lists are actually parts lists, so they are long and of varying lengths each. Aside from physically going in a manually padding spaces, which isn't feasible given the number of them. The have alphanumeric characters, so jumbled all together seperated by commas is very messy and hard to read. I have tried padding with spaces using a formula but they do not line up right. I have been searching for a solution either having the entries in separate cells and concatenated entries, and still no luck.

## Text Box Forms Combobox Initialize Private Sub

Jun 18, 2012

I am trying to work out how i can run a macro on an 'initializing event'...which is caused by when I click on a certain Forms ComboBox.

This drop down box is a shape and it is called "Drop Down Box 11"

so was hoping to write something like

The box is linked in with Cell E56

so have put in my code as

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_selectionChange(ByVal Target As Object)
If Target.address = "\$E\$56" Then range("f56").value = "Yes" etc...

but it still allows me to click on the combo box and change my pick but it still doesn't initialize the event.

## Adding Text Entered In Userform Combobox Into Dropdown List

Aug 1, 2012

I am not sure if this can be done easily but essentially what I have is a userform that fills out a form that will used by several different people and saved to a central location.

There is a blank combobox currently labeled "Supplier:" that each person fills out each time on the userform (there are no dropdowns yet).

What I am wanting to do is for every person who saves (I have coded the save button) with the "Supplier:" combobox filled out to save what they entered and input that into the combobox dropdown so when the next person uses the userform the entry the previous person entered would be in the combobox as an option to select.

Essentially, a combobox populates itself based on what previous users have entered into it.
