# Copy Cell Range To A Cell Comment

Jul 12, 2009

I have a recipe and a set of instructions on a worksheet in the cell range A1:H50 and would like to copy the whole range to a single cell as a Comment.

At the moment I select the range, copy and paste it to MS Word.

In Word, I select all and copy, then back in Excel, select cell, insert Comment then paste the text into the Comment box. Then I have to resize the Comments box. Also doing it this way loses some of the original formatting I could get round that by saving the cell range as a picture and inserting the picture in the Comments box.

Surely there has got to be a better way. Using 2007 Excel & Word

## Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

## 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.

Mar 13, 2012

How, via VBA, would I add a comment from a userform (text box name: txtReason) into a cell that may already have a comment in it? I would like to keep the comment that is in the cell and then have the program add a "/" and the next comment from txtReason..

## Paste Copied Contents Of A Cell As A Comment In Another Cell

Sep 7, 2012

I am working on a database and trying to remove duplicates. When there are duplicates, I want to take the contents of one cell and copy them as a comment on the cell above (or below).

I tried to work on a small macro to do so, but the contents of the cell cannot be copied (it comes out as a blank).

The long way is to 'double click' in the cell, Ctrl+A, cut, click the cell above, Ctrl+F2, paste. This way is very long as I have thousands of duplicates.

## How To Reference A Cell In Another Workbook And Return Cell Value And Comment

Nov 2, 2012

What is the best way to reference a cell in another workbook and return the cell contents and the comment on that cell. I would like the comment to come across as a comment in the new workbook becuase the comment is actually a picture.

Hope this makes sense. I did find a macro through googling but I couldn't get it to work? I don't really want to copy and paste because eventually I have hundreds of sheets & thousands of cells to refer to.?

## Making 1 Cell Equal Another Cell Including Its Comment?

May 18, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with some cells which return values using INDEX and MATCH to bring back the entire details of a person based on there membership number. However I require the comments to be attached with the returned values. The comments have there image in, rather than just text.

I have found some answers with vba, which do the process, however you had to manually enter the cell, from which the comment was to be copied from, into a pop up box. This involved finding the box myself to then select the box to take the comment from. In doing this I had found and read the comment, which is the is the process I'm trying to bypass.

## Excel 2010 :: Find A Cell Within Range Then Copy That Cell To Another Location

Sep 26, 2013

(I am using Excel version 14.0.7106 and MS Office Professional 2010.)

I have a macro in which I have named a range of numbers in a spreadsheet, used the "find" function to find a particular number in that range, and now would like to copy some information into a cell in the same row as the found number. However, when I try to move over to the cell that I'm copying to, it only goes to the 1st row in the range that I have defined.

Here's the portion of code I think you need to see. Everything works...it finds a match...but then I don't know what to do from there to get the information to the correct row:

'Grab the 1st project number
Range("C8").Select
Do Until ActiveCell.Value = ""
If ActiveCell.Value "" Then
prjnum = ActiveCell.Value
Selection.Offset(0, 8).Select

## Click To Copy Cell Within Range To Destination Cell?

Oct 18, 2013

My goal would be to click on a cell within a range of cells (in a column) and have the value copied to a specified destination cell. There would be a few different columns with source cells and two destination cells. Each column would to copy to a specific cell. My ojective is basically to deal with different processing times (days, weeks, months).

Here's a little visual, clicking on C4 for example would copy the value "5" to cell B2. Clicking on D4 would copy "12" to A2.

## How To Copy Cell Range Based On Individual Cell

Mar 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet (book1.xls) that has a column with 13 names down the side and 31 other rows (dates of the month)

Mike1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mike2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mike3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mike4 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 etc

I have selected all 13 rows and 7 days and named them 'week1', and the next 7 days 'week2', the next 7 days 'week3' etc/What i want is to display the named range based on a single cell selection based on a cell value in a different sheet.

The basics of it should be "If cell C1 = 1 then show me 'week1' or if cell C1 = 2 then show me 'week2' etc.

## Copy Hyperlink Cell To Range Of Cell Individually

Dec 1, 2012

I have a hyperlink cell. Straightforward copying and pasting it to another cell works well, with the new cell replicating the hyperlink. However, if I try to copy the hyperlink cell to a range of cells (say B1 to B5), at first it looks ok, but once I click one of them, it appears they are all clicked. And if I delete one of the cells in the range, say B3, ALL cells within that range loses its hyperlink. It looks like all of these hyperlinks are referencing one another, but once I delete one cell, the rest loses its hyperlink (the words are still there). At the current time, I have to copy into the range individually (copy to B1, then B2, then B3...etc), but this becomes a hassle if I have a large range.

## Copy Cell Range If Column Cell Greater Than 0

Feb 6, 2014

I’m trying to write a macro to look down two different columns in my work sheet and if the is a value >0 then copy a set range of cells to another sheet,

I need to search column (k) and (x) range (“K2 : K147”) and (“X2 : X147”) in (sheet1) for values >0 if there is, then copy from (“f : m”) if it is found in the (k) column, or copy from (“s : z”) if it is found in the (X) column, and paste value only to the next empty cell in sheet2 . Sheet2 is empty so (A) on down is fine for paste range. There is a spin button in the copy range column (L) and I don’t want that picked up in the copy. Manually I (paste text) only but I think (values only) will do the same thing.

## Cell Matching Range Copy Another Cell Same Row?

Sep 4, 2013

I have two excel sheets with order details.

Sheet1:A1:Order ID, B1:City, C1:State
Sheet2:A1:Order ID, B1:Rate

Sheet 1 only contains successful order ID's In Sheet 2 there are many order ids with pending, failed, successful transactions.

I want to compare Sheet1:A1 with Sheet2 full range Order ID's. If there is a match it should copy B1:rate to Sheet1 D1 and so on. I tried some VLOOKUP formulas but they did not work.

ActiveCell.Comment.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True

Where Commenta is the string value I want to add.

## Find Matched Value In A Range For Named Cell Then Copy Range Cells Below

Aug 6, 2013

I need method, using a button, that looks at a cell--say EO2, for example--, looks back on a master worksheet at a specified row and range for a match, then looks at the information from a specified range below the matching cell (The information in this column will either be blank or have an "X" in the cell), and then those rows that do not have an "X" will be hidden in the corresponding rows in the working worksheet. Therefore, if at any time the value in "EO2" ever changes, then it will automatically find a new match and repopulate and hide information as before. About 130 columns will have its own button so that a "query" can be made that depends on the information in a particular cell in that column.

The master worksheet now has matrix of 287 rows and 58 columns. Each row is for an operating procedure and each column shows a job code. An "X" in a coordinate cell for a column/row shows whether that job code is responsible for knowing that operating procedure. So, on the working sheet, an employee's primary job code is given underneath his or her name. When the button is pushed, all the operating procedures not required for a given person will be hidden and only the required ones will remain visible--grouped, if you will. Qualification dates will be easier to see now that the information is consolidated. Whenever someone transfers to a new position, a new code will be inputed on the working sheet. When the button is pushed, a new grouping will result. Any operating instructions that overlap will still have qualification dates, so that information will not need to be transcribed.

## Search Range In One Sheet - If Any Cell In Range Is Greater Then 0 Copy That Row

Sep 24, 2013

Basically I have three sheets. MAIN, Sheet 1 and Sheet 2

Sheet 1 and 2 are in the same format

A3 down is a list of country names and then B3:I71 contains the data im interested in.

I've been trying to create a function that looks at B3:i71 to see if any cell in that range contains a value greater then \$0.00. If it does then the row that contains the cell with a value greater then \$0.00 (between col A to K) should be copied to sheet MAIN from cells B3 down. This should ultimatley produce a list of data for any row containing a value greater then \$0.00. This process should then be repeated on Sheet 2 and should join the list below sheet 1.
