Need coding of command button to output text based on the contents of combobox1 and combobox2. The text should be placed in the next available cell starting in cell b3 for combobox1 and starting in cell c3 for combobox2. Each time submit is clicked the name and number associated with that name should go in the next free cell in the spreadsheet.
So for example the user choses name1 and number6 cell b3 would read name1 and cell c3 would read number6 after submit is clicked. The user then choses name58 and number12 and presses submit again cell b4 would read name58 and cell c4 would read number12.
I have created an ActiveX command button and the text on the button looks crude. I know that is not very descriptive but I am unsure how to describe it. The text looks jagged and some letters are missing chunks of their letters. The font I have chosen is Calibri.
If I create a Form Controls button I do not have this problem but I want the button to have a particular background color so I do not believe I can use a Form Controls button.
I do not know why the other Calibri text on the worksheet looks fine while the ActiveX Calibri text does not. The attached image shows the two buttons with the top one being the ActiveX button while the bottom is a Forms button.
I have created a cover sheet with various command buttons linking into the available worksheets. I was wondering if it is possible to set the title of the command buttons by linking them to the text in a particular cell in each work sheet??
I'm trying to make a command button copy the text from a text box on a multipage control to the active cell in the sheet. I have been able to make it paste the text once it is manually selected and copied to the clipboard but that is all. I've tried recording a macro but that doesn't seem to work in the userform. I need it to copy the text from the active multipage tab (from a textbox) and paste into the sheet's active cell.
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.
.State = msobuttondown .State = msobuttonup
Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.
My sheet has a calculator that outputs a value based on inputs. I also have a pick list on top labeled Q1-Q4. Depending on which value is selected on the picklist, the input values will output a different amount. I want to create a button which allows me to take this output and save it in another cell under a heading Q1, Q2 etc. depending on which Q was selected in the original picklist. In essence I want a button that records each output onto the same sheet by by quarter(Q).
I'm a complete Excel and VBA newbie and would like to know if it's possible to change the output of OptionButtons from 'TRUE' or 'FALSE' to "1"/"2"/"3"/etc..
The name of each button is:
Rating 1 Rating 2 Rating 3 Rating 4 and so forth..
The idea is for each rating to output its assigned number such that if the user were to click "Rating 1", the result would be "1", "Rating 2" = 2 and so on. I'm trying to design a survey and these results will then be used to calculate an average rating. If this is possible, how would I need to write the code for it?
I have searched this topic but I came up with nothing regarding my exact situation.
I have 5 buttons on sheet 1. I want them to all direct me to another sheet in the same workbook. However, some buttons will contain more than one sheet.
Example: Button 1 will direct me to 4 different sheets. Is this possible?
Also, When I open the workbook, I see many sheets that I am working from but I do not want them to show up when I open the workbook. The only way to see these sheets is to click on the command buttons at the top of sheet 1.
I have a 2 worksheets. One "Projects in Process"and the other "Project Completed". when the users fill in the information in cells A4-F4 (line 4 is the starting line and it could go down as far as line 23 or a23 - f23) In Projects in Process they press a "completed Project" command button and the data in a4-f4 copies over to worksheet "Projects completed". In the next available row (starting at row 4).
I want to create a command button that will clear whatever is written in a text box. I guess for this to work it needs to select all, then clear. The command button and the text box have been created using the control toolbox.
I have created a userform with text boxes and a list box. I have a few questions. First for the list box. I got the information for my list box through the list box example sheet2!A1:A1000. Is there any easier way ? Next I would like to create a New Command button to create a new record. I decided to just do a clear all textboxes, option buttons ect.. to clear, is there an easier way ? I seem to be looping sort of way when I get to txtissue.Value = "" it than goes to txtIssue_Change()
I have a spreadsheet that automatically analyzes the last week's worth of data and then displays a table of summary data from that analysis in the range C2:G11. Each row (i.e. 2:11) represents the statistics from one of the 10 regions in the state. I then have a second "details" table which remains blank (it occupies the range C14:G20; one row for each day of the week) until an "x" is typed in Column H in the cell adjacent to a region's summary data above, e.g.
if I want to display detailed data for region 4 for the last week, I would type an "x" in cell H5; formulas in the blank "details" table then lookup information on region 4 from a larger dataset. This system works fine, but is a little clumsy (typing "x"'s and deleting previous "x"'s, etc.).
Here's what I would like:
1): A macro for this sheet that will place an "x" in the ActiveCell (only in the case that the active cell is somewhere in the range H2:H11), will remove that "x" when that cell is no longer active, and will not place more than one "x" at a time-- for instance if more than one cell is accidentally highlighted
2): Also, I would like to be able to paste the values and formatting of the "details" table (C14:G20) to a separate sheet (we'll call it Sheet2) if they're interesting, and I'd like to be able to do this with a command button. The problem is I don't know... 1: how to place a button on the sheet, 2: how to attach code to this button, 3: where to place this code (can it go in the same place as the ActiveCell macro I described earlier?).
Ideally, the code would allow me to paste an arbitrary number of these tables to Sheet2, so the code would need to be able to identify the first blank cell in Column A as the location to paste a new table when the button is clicked.
I have attached a spreadsheet example. I would like to be able to use a command button to pop up a series of questions for the user to input a value and have that value populate the directed cell.
Example from spread sheet:Click - "How many bid" button First question should be " How many for Joe" Input the number i.e. 2 The number input should go to the cell C5 in this example Next question should be "How many for John" I want to input the number 3 The number 3 should go into cell F5 How many for Jim I need to input a number The number should go to cell I5 How Many for Jerry I need to input a number The number should go to cell L5
I would also like the same function for the "How many won" button.
I have few problems with the below script. First I dont know exactly where I want the button to be placed since the data changes from week to week. Is there a way for me to place the button with in some merged cells? If so How can I merge some cells when I dont know where the data will end. I'm using this to find the last empty cell in Column "B" plus 2 cells down.
I want to insert a command button and assign a macro, I have the developers toolbar available with the controls section and on all other spreadsheets i can then select insert and choose the required button, however on the particular workbook i want to use the insert button is greyed out and not available.
i already use macros in this workbook and they work fine from keyboard shortcuts but i would like to make one of them run from a command button
Is there a simple setting somewhere which i may have turned off inadvertently previously or could the problem have anything to do with the macros themselves?
I have created a command button from the Excel 2003 from the Macros toolbar that I placed on my worksheet. I want to use this button to activate an existing macro. Currently I have no code entered for this button and the button when clicked on behaves as an object to be edited, moved, etc. How should I proceed?
