Constant Variables - Declare Name In Separate UserForm As Constant
May 8, 2012
I have a userForm (Form1) that contains a persons name that I would like to reference in a separate UserForm (Form2). In the separate UserForm (Form2) I need to reference this persons name many times, so I was wondering if there was a was to declare this name in the separate UserForm (Form2) as a constant. Only thing is that a constant, to the best of my knowledge, must be an expression and not a variable. Mainly, I'm trying to avoid declaring the myName variable in each Sub within Form2, which it will be needed for a ton of Sub's.
Code for Form2: Const myName As String = Form1.txtName.Value
I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that will tell the user how much of two products to use in order to get a desired percentage of total fat. For example: if the total pounds is to be 3000 at a fat percentage of 30%. There would be two products (a lean meat and high fat meat). The percentage of fat in those two meats will change each time. The user will enter those percentages and then the formula needs to tell how many lbs of each to use in order to get the desired percentage of fat.
Each time there is a "target" amount of each product to use. For example: 1000 lbs of Lean Meant and 2000 lbs of Fat meat. Those are based on the ideal levels of fat in each.
However, sometimes the fat is not at the ideal so the formula has to be adjusted in order to compensate.
I have recently discovered the concatenate formula. Is it possible to include 2 variables with 1 constant entry. i.e. I wish to establish file names with 2 variables, e.g. 0051 and 1025 followed by a file extension, .EC0 - the file name being 00511025.EC0. The variables are in Excel columns. I can achieve the wanted result by establishing an extra column and copying .EC0 into every cell of that column; but I would prefer not to have that extra column in the completed Excel file.
So I have module1 -> Sub Macro1() module2 -> Sub Macro2() module3 -> Sub Macro3() module4 -> Sub Macro4()
I have declared
Dim mdNextTime1 As Double Dim myEnter As Integer 'Dim myK1 As Integer 'Dim myK2 As Integer 'Dim myK3 As Integer Dim myK4 As Integer Const myC As Integer = 82 Dim Lastrow As Integer Dim myActualRow As Integer
I want to basically set a varible that can be called back into a multiple of documents I will try and explain this as best as I can but it is a fortnightly pay date... i.e. 22/04/2009 Wednesday... as the payroll is fortnightly I want to be able to use the current date or todays date in a future proof macro.
i.e. if todays date is the 14/04/09 then the next pay date has to be the 22/04/09, if this was run in two weeks it would be 06/05/2009.
I was thinking a long the lines of lock in one start date... 14/01/09, then adding increments of 14 days until todays date - variable + 14 * r = "-"
Option Explicit Public Const ARK As String = "Inddata-ARK" Public Const VVS As String = "Inddata-VVS" Public Const KON As String = "Inddata-KON" Public Const EL As String = "Inddata-EL" Public Const LD As String = "Inddata-LD" Public Const KØL As String = "Inddata-KØL" Public Const OpDat As String = "Opdatering"
And then macro's under it... So the aboce is in module "INIT_S". Now in another module "RUN_P" I have a sub-rutine that uses these constants with a select case. Likes this:
Sub OpEksInitNu() Select Case ActiveSheet. Name Case ARK With OpEks 'more stuff Case VVS 'more stuff Case KON 'more stuff End Sub
But when I try to run OpEksInitNu i comes with ambigious name with ARK as the error, later down I use another public constant. But i keep getting the ambigious name error.. What could cause that... I have tried to locate all ARK, VVS etc. to try to determine if it is used later on, but it's not! I only declare the constants one time, and no module is called ARK, VVS etc.
I'm looking to run several subs in a module which all refer to the same constant but I'm having difficulty defining that constant in a way that the various subs will accept. Basically I'm trying to define a constant LastRow. I am fairly new to VBA so am not sure whether to use a Get LastRow public property (which I tried to use and failed) or a Function and then how to make this readable by all the subs.
I have sales per month going down a column and I would like to subtract a corresponding $ amount going across columns. It's hard to explain but I would like a formula that I can populate all of the cells with. Spreadsheet should make it clearer.
Ok, I have a spreadsheet that I use to track the majority of my work throughout the day. I have about 10 columns that I use for my own information, and about 4 of them that my colleagues need updates on. I have one sheet "worktracking" and another sheet "printable." Printable has just the 4 columns of info that my colleagues might need, formatted in a way that prints out nicely. Each column in "printable" references a column in "work tracking" like this
Now the problem that I'm running into is that I routinely delete rows from the "worktracking" sheet, which results in a reference error on the "printable" sheet. I am wondering if there is a way to rework it, such that when I delete a row from "worktracking," then "printable" just does the same, and only retains rows that have data in them...
I have a list of data which which has repeated supplier numbers in column A. For instance
A123 A123 A123 X456 x456 x456 x456
The information in other 13 columns is variable and I need to be able to move all the rows which start with the first supplier number to another sheet which I will rename to that name, then move the second set of supplier numbers to a second sheet etc. So in my above mini example I would have one sheet named A123 with 3 rows of data and another sheet named X456 with 4 rows of data.
The number of supplier codes will be different every day and the number of rows within each supplier number will also vary. Each new datafile that comes in daily creates a new file do I do not have to worry about existing values only what the current file contains. I have used the following code to move data based on a known constant before but dont know how to tell the macro "move all the data while the value stays the same"
Sub DiffOrderNo() Dim totalrows As Long, row As Long Cells.Sort Key1:=Range("A1") totalrows = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
I need to calculate a formula in a constantly changing range. In the example below, the formula in column C would yield the % change in column A between the first "P" value in column B and the minimum value prior to the next "P" value.
So, the first result would be =(A2-A1)/A1, which is (1896.3274 - 1973.4764)/1973.4764. The cells in column C would be blank until the next formula, which is =(A8-A7)/A7, then it gets tricky. The next would be =(A14-A10)/A10.
A B C 1 1973.4764 P 2 1896.3274 3 1922.5499 4 1905.2061 5 1985.6797
I found out that using Enum one can have a dropdown box to choose from when inserting a parameter in a function.
But how can I have the same user-defined constant in more then one Enum? It works with standard VBA variables like vbEmpty, so why not with self made constants?
I tried this which gives the error: Ambiguous name detected
Code: Private Const vbTest = 99 ''' = Ambiguous name detected !!! Enum eTest1 '''gives 3 choices vbEmpty ''' = standard VBA 1 vbLong ''' = standard VBA 3 vbTest ''' not in VBA, so I would assign 99 to it End Enum
I have a bar chart that has data by the quarter over a span of 3 years, so there are a total of 12 bars on the chart. Everything looks good there, but now I need to add the minimum amount that the customer needs to acheive (which varies every quarter) in the form of a line. So I added a line chart with the minimum data, but the problem is it goes up and down from point to point and doesn't create a visual horizontal line for the customer to see if they are hitting their minimum every quarter. Is there any way around this?
