Copy/Paste Not Copying Cell Formatting (row Height)

I am having a problem with a excel spreadsheet. There are no formulas or anything, just text that I used excel to get everything lined up. I haven't had any issues before, I was copying and pasting within a document. It was all text with different row heights set. I ran into a problem now where the text copies and pastes fine but the row heights aren't coping into the cells I am pasting into, just the text. What do I have to do so they will copy? I don't want to have to go an individually adjust each cell.

Copy And Paste Conditional Formatting
I am trying to figure out how to copy and paste conditional formatting.

1371908# on hand 16458
ACNF18051 208
ACNF18061 104
ACNF30081 208
1371908 Total416104

1371911# on hand 7053
ACNF18051 208
ACNF18061 104
ACNF30081 208
1371911 Total416104

for instance in the above.. I want to black out any number in the "total" (bold) row that is less than the On Hand Qty (bold and underlined number) and I want to use a running total. For instance for part 1371911 with an On Hand Qty of 7053, the on hand is larger than the the first total of 416 so 416 should be blacked out, it is also larger than 416+104 so 104 should be blacked out as well.

This will continue until the on hand qty is less than the running total. I can conditionally format this one at a time and it could take forever as there are 3000+ lines of spreadsheet. If there is any way that you can tell me how to set the condtional format for one row and then cpy and paste it thoughout the sheet where needed.

Date Formatting Copy/paste
I have a spreadsheet of donations and the dates on which they were made. I input the dates like so: 1/2/2009, and then I format the cells so they appear like this: January 2, 2009. When I use this date in for MS Word "mail merge" functions, the date shows up in its unformatted formula bar form: 1/2/2009. I would prefer that it show up like January 2, 2009.

My question is this: is there any way I can change the cell formula bar to read like the formatted version rather than the non-formatted version? I want the formula bar to read "January 2, 2009" instead of "1/2/2009". Obviously I could type each date manually into the formula bar, but I'm looking for a quick copy/paste solution since there are hundreds of cells. I've messed around with "paste special" options to no avail.

Copy & Paste Cells Excluding Formatting & Protection
I have the following code from a form. It works just fine copying named ranges from one sheet to another. The probloem now is that I don't want to copy the characteristic of the formating or whether they are protected or not. The originating spreadsheets have cells that are protected. I am trying to copy those values over to the new sheet and paste their values or formulas but not their formatting (background color) or the fact that some of the cells are 'locked'. I want the new sheet to have the values and formulas but not the be lock for the user. Is this possible with the current way I do the code or do I have to rewrite it? How would you approach this?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()


Run "NPA"

Set b = Selection
ad = b.Address

' Local Variables
Dim wkbDataFile As Workbook

' Let user select source datafile
Call UserSelectFile_WOpen(wkbDataFile)
If wkbDataFile Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "User did not select a workbook to open"
Exit Sub
End If

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Set wb = ThisWorkbook

Application.DisplayAlerts = False

Finding The Column With The MAX Height In Comparson Wth Othr Columns Of UNEVEN Height
Finding the Column with the MAX Height in comparison with other Columns of UNEVEN Height

I need two things :

1. I have several columns starting from Column B till Column F, each column having values starting from the third ROW.


Lets say Column B contains two values in B3 and B4, Col C three values in C3 C4 and C5, Col D four values D3,D4,D5 and D6, Col E two values in E3 and E4, Column F five values F3,F4,F5,F6 and F7.

So, the answer is F3:F7.

2.I am using 10^{4,3,2,1,0} in a particular portion of a formula, Now the number of elements in the array or in the Curly Braces depends on the number of Columns filled from Column B as explained in the Point 1.

Now, since I have five columns under consideration I have this order as mentioned here {4,3,2,1,0} , I would like to know whether I could make this dynamic, as in if there were only four columns then this would be {3,2,1,0} and if more this array could self-fill and expand..

If that's possible, then how do we use it in the formula, Is it by the virtue of the INDIRECT function?

Locking Conditional Formatting In 2000: Copy/paste Text From Other Cells Or Columns Even Other Workbooks
I have a column "g" with this conditional formatting:- =A2<>A3 Format Bottom Border.
However I will pass this workbook onto someone else who will fill in the text in column "g". They will use copy/paste text from other cells or columns even other workbooks that will not have the conditional formatting.

I have used Cells > Projection > Locked unchecked then used Tools > Protection > Protect Sheet and checked all. There does not seem to be a way to unlock the cell but protect Conditional formatting. Each time I copy and paste from other non formatted cells it wipes out my formatting.

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell
I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. It’s visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Copy Data From Cell In One Worksheet, Add Text, And Paste To Cell In Another Sheet
I have the following code in another workbook that is used to populate a cell on the same sheet based on input to cells in column 'A'.

Is it possible to modify this for the attached workbook to select a cell with data (numbers) on the Input Data sheet in column 'E', add text to the beginning, ('CG' in this case), and paste the result to the Import Template in the corresponding cell of column 'A'? I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.

Copy And Paste A Cell Value
I have a constantly updated cell (A1) where I log the amount of customer products. I have a sheet where I log the payments on a monthly basis from these customers. What I want to acheive is when I enter the date the money was received in 'B1' for 'C1' to look to 'A1' and paste that value (let's say 29). Then in the next month this number could have gone up to 31, so, when I then enter the date of money received in 'B2', 'C2' will look to 'A1' and paste '31' and so on.

Copy The Dynamic Auto-Sum Cell And Paste It To Another Cell
2 Different worksheets to work with

The "Nursery" Worksheet
I already have code that puts the Auto-Sum amount below the last data row in the column named "Nursery Grand Total" in the Nursery Worksheet.

This Auto-Sum amount, however, will always be in a different row because the amount of rows generated from the report is always different as well, therefore, the Auto-Sum cell/row changes with that to be right below the last data row in the "Nursery Grand Total" Column.

I would like to copy (values only) the amount from this dynamically changing Auto-Sum cell and paste it into another worksheet named "Totals".

The "Totals" Worksheet
In my "Totals" worksheet, I have two columns.
"Master Total Description" and "Master Grand Totals".

In the "Master Total Description" column, I have a cell named "Nursery Grand Total" which is exactly the same name as the header row in the "Nursery" worksheet.


In the "Nursery" worksheet/"Nursery Grand Total" column, I would like to copy the auto-sum amount

and paste it into....

the "Totals" worksheet/"Nursery Grand Total" row/"Master Grand Totals" column

Here are some pictures for reference...

Copy Recent Cell Value And Paste In The Next Empty Cell Down.
I am trying to do is create an invoice log of payments received. For each payment there is a cell value of how many products the customer has which is updated on each payment entry. What I want to do is have a macro that runs when all other data is entered to update this value.

So I have a main customer sheet where it holds the product amount in the same workbook, let's call this cell $A$1 holding a value of 47. I go to enter a payment record on the invoice sheet, once this is complete the macro will run and look to $A$1 on the first sheet and update $B1 on my invoice sheet. On the next entry it will update $B2, then $B3 and so on.

I use excel 2003. To improve readability, I have formatted each line to have a slightly different background color (white for odd ines, light gray for even). Sometimes when I edit, I use Control + D to fill down a column with the data or formula from the 1st cell.

Macro To Search, Copy Then Paste Cell
