Copy Active Cell Down Adjacent Range To Right
Split from: Clear Range To Right Of Active Cell Down. I was working through this the first step was to clear the contents of the cells. After they are cleared, I have another sub that then goes and retreives a unquie number and places it back at the top of the column that I just cleared. Would this same code that cleared the cells contents work to copy the contents of the active cell down that same column, until the cell to its right is blank? -R-

Range Copy: Differ Depending On The Active Cell That's Selected
The rows will differ depending on the Active Cell that's selected and I don't know how to specify this.
The range I want to copy is from Column B to DA on the worksheet ("Staff") which I want to paste to another worksheet ("Leavers"). This is as far as I got

'FindRemove = lstRemove.Value
'If FindRemove = "" Then End

' Goes to the start of the Data column

' Tests current cell against FindRemove
'If ActiveCell.Value = FindRemove Then
'Call CopyPerson
'Exit Sub
'Else: ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
'End If
'Loop Until ActiveCell.Value = ""
'End Sub

Copy Data: Always Work With File A (active)
I open 2 files : A & B. Once I finish copying data from B into A. I close B and open C and so on. That means I always work with file A (active)

File B, C or D and so on has 3 worksheets with identical names. The filename of B, C and so on also has some common word

I'd like to copy data into sheet1 of file A, always same range : B2:B100 , afterwards I would copy-paste each result from sheet1 to another sheet of file A and delete the data in sheet1. So sheet1 of file A is always active and show the result each time the macro was run as follows.

Cell b2 of file A = cell c1 of sheet 1 of file B
Cell b3 of file A = cell d1 sheet 1 of file B + cell e1 of sheet 2 of file B

Copy Range Of Cells To Active Row In Second Sheet
Sheet 1 has data entered into it, it is then printed out as a jobsheet, saved and the data cleared. There are certain fields on this sheet that are eventually manually replicated onto sheet 2. The row in which they must go on sheet 2 will always be the 'activerow' on that sheet from a previous operation. It would make life so much easier and save lots of time if I could incorporate copying cells C10,C12,K8,K12,M2,C27 and C29 from sheet 1 to respective cells H,I,J,M,N,R,S of the active row on sheet 2 before I carry out the clear data process.

Copy Ranges From Closed Files To Active Workbook
I have a number of files in a directory, with data in columns A:E, and variable rows deep (200-300) that I’d like to copy to the active workbook. I’d like to have a file window open to the same set directory (ie. “CArchives” and be able to select any file in that directory to copy.

There are 2 separate ranges to copy, which must be done separately because the headings are to be moved 2 columns over - also, there is data in beteen the headings and main data in the active workbook.

Range 1: Two headings cells in A1:B1 get transposed to C1:D1.
Range 2: the files’ data starts at A4 but gets inserted starting at cell A6 of the active workbook.

I need to copy the Selected Sheet (Sheet name will be different each month) on a spreadsheet and paste the copy to the left of the selected Sheet. Then I need to copy and paste values the entire sheet of the sheet that the copy was made from (the one on the right). I am very new to macros, and I tried recording and manually editing the macro with no success. The number of sheets will be different always as I will be adding this to different workbooks and also because new sheets may be added to any workbook at any time.

Find Method To Search For The Active And Non Active Values
I have a range of amounts in Sheet 1 from F7:Q13 and im using the find method to search for the active and non active values in the cell. Which means that if there's a value in the cell it will transfer the value in Sheet 2, if nothing is found in the cell the cells in Sheet 2 will return as nothing or null.

I think the problem lies on the FindWhat variable. Im getting a compiled error which im not sure what is it.

I've attached the spreadsheet so you get a better idea of the problem that i encountered.

Identify Active Cell And Use The Column To Add Formula To Another Cell
I have a range of unlocked cells (B5:S10) that users enter data in. This sum of this data is then charted. The formula (sum) in a cell equals zero even when there is no data entered by the user. This zero is then charted.

I need to be able to plot the zeros if the user enters zeros but not plot the zero if the cells are blank.

What I was attempting to do is to use the worksheet change event to add the formulas to a cell so that the chart does not plot the value until something was added.

In my change event I need to know that a cell in the range (B5:S10) was changed and that if it was D7 (for example) that I need a formula enterd in D11 [=SUM(D5:D10)]. If it was I5 then the formula would have to go in I11 [=SUM(I5:I10)].

Return Maximum Of Active Cell & Arbitrary Value To Cell
I am looking for VBA that will add the value of the current active cell on the sheet to the value in cell F12. The maximum value of F12 cannot exceed 1000. So if the value in F12 = 950 and 100 is the value in the active cell the maximum value in F12 should show 1000, not 1050.

It should do this on the click of a button.

Go To First Cell In List That Matches Contents Of Active Cell
I am just learning to use VBA and this may be the most simple task ever, but I can't figure it out. I've searched for all of the keywords I can think of, but can't find a solution...

I have a list of names in a sheet. Other columns in this sheet contain data like amount charged, amount paid, etc. This sheet must be manually updated (because the other program won't export the information I need) periodically to ensure proper billing/payment application in the original software (all transactions are handled by other people that I don't trust).

I sort the list so that the all names that are the same (ie John Doe) are together.

A short example list looks like this:

Jeremy Apple
John Doe
John Doe
John Doe
Jimmy Kravitz
Jimmy Kravitz

In updating my sheet, I set up a macro that will input todays date in one of the columns for all occurences of that name (so, every row that contains John Doe in column B, column V will have todays date in it).

Currently, in order for my macro to work properly, I have to manually make the activecell the first occurrence of 'John Doe'. When I'm ready to update 'Jimmy Kravitz', I have to select the first occurrence of 'Jimmy Kravitz' and so on.

Here's my question - Is there a way to use a VBA macro to find the first occurrence of 'John Doe' (and automatically 'know' which name I am updating)? Basically, I need a macro that will take the information that is in the cell in column B in the active row, find the first row that has that same name, and make that cell (column B) the active cell...

VB - Paste In Last Active Cell
I'm working on this Macro process - and I can't figure two things out.

1) How do I get it to past contents in the second blank cell at the bottom of a list in a specific column? IE - data in B1:B17, paste new list in B19. What I'd REALLY like, is for it to paste in B8, but if B8 used, THEN paste to the second to last blank cell in column B. (if thats even possible)

2) I have VB open an excel workbook, grab data, copy and then past into 1) (above), but then close that workbook. However it always asks "do you wish to save?" and "Do you wish to keep data on clipboard" How can I program it to say "no" for both of these windows prompts? Here's an excerpt of my code:

Change Active Cell Color According To Name Above
Here is a screen shot of what I have:

I want to be able to enter the name from the above 4 cells (B3,B4,B5,B6) IN THAT COLUMN, and have the active cell change color accordingly.

If I am in cell C7 and start to type "PUBLIX" It should turn red in color. It does not because the code looks to a specific cell (example: B3). What can I change in my code to give the results I desire?

I have conditional formatting code below I copied from THIS site:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
' Multiple Conditional Format
Dim rng As Range
' Only look at single cell changes
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
' Adjust Format range to suit
Set rng = Range("B7:H74")
' Only look at that range
If Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
' Adjust conditions to suit
Select Case Target.Value
Case Range("B6").Value
Target.Font.ColorIndex = 50 ' Green
Case Range("B5").Value
Target.Font.ColorIndex = 3 ' Blue
' Case "Super"
' Target.Font.ColorIndex = 6 ' Yellow
Case Range("B4").Value
Target.Font.ColorIndex = 13 ' Purple-ish

Insert Rows At The Active Cell
I want to be able to allow a user to insert a number of rows (they would specify the number) into a worksheet, at the active cell location. I also need the same number of rows to be inserted into the same worksheet (but much lower down) The location of which is to be governed by the location of the original inserted rows.

Having created the new rows I need all the formulas from the row ABOVE the active cell to be copied into all the newly created rows.

If active cell is A5 I want user to be able to run a macro which asks them how many rows they wish to insert. (Assume the user asks for 7).

The macro then inserts that number of rows, (starting at row 5). And additionally adds 7 rows at a location further down the worksheet (say row 105). The formulas from the row above the active cell are then copied into all the newly created rows.

2nd example
If the active cell was A9 then the macro would add 7 rows, starting at row 9 and additionally add 7 rows starting at row 109. Then formulas added.

Active Cell - Selecting Too Many Cells
I have some code as below
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select

This should basically go down a list and stop when there is a blank cell. However due to a previous operation in my excel program, it is not doing so.

Basically this list has been formed from copy and pasting from a list of formulas. some of these formulas return a result and others return "" leaving the cell empty.

When i have pasted i have used paste special/values... but it still seems to paste something into these cells because this macro wont work.

I even went and manually selected the first blank cell and pressed the delete button and when i do this it correctly selects the cells only with content, so clearly when pasting a "" value it stops the activecell operation from working..

Move Active Cell One To The Right - 2000
What is the command to move the active cell? For example, suppose C15 is the active cell, and I want a macro to move the active cell one to the right. Or maybe 3 to the right, and one down. The deal is, I'd like to be able to make the active cell move in a fixed pattern relative to the cell that is already active (before the macro is run), rather than moving to a final fixed destination (which would be something that even I could figure out). In other words, if I select R20, and run the macro (or whatever other mechanism you guys come up with), then R21 will be selected; likewise, I can click G12, run the macro, and G13 will be selected.
