Create A Automated Trigger

Apr 5, 2007

I am having trouble trying to get an MS Access Query to run from MS Excel automatically.

I am trying to create an automated trigger in MS Excel that will automatically run my Access query by the times I specify in my statement.

For example: I need to run a query in Access at 9am, 12 pm and 10pm, that's it, but I believe I need to do it via Excel, I don't want the data returned to Excel, I just want Excel to execute the query at those specific times!

Adjust Code From Cell Range Trigger To Button Trigger

Jul 1, 2014

I have the code below that is two separate activities and I want to change the second activity from a cell trigger (Set KeyCells = Range("K42:AD42")) to a button trigger. I need to first to remain unchanged.

I'd be ok if this was just one macro that I could assign to a button but because its two and I need to write the second's to clicking a button I'm over my head.

Its occured to me while writing this that because it'll be a range of buttons I'll probably need to make each one an individual code? Is this the case? If so I may have to just keep this as it is.

Automated Grouping Using VB

Oct 20, 2008

I have a large excel sheet that will take a lot of time grouping it manually, so I was wondering if there was some way somebody could help me out with creating a code in VB to automate this grouping for me. All I would need is something to read through the rows of one column and when it finds a blank row, keep scanning until the next blank row and then group the data between the two blank rows. I have attached a small portion of the excel sheet I am working with if you need to get a visual of what I am needing.

Automated Adding

Jun 19, 2009

I have a monthly report that I get with lab tests and amounts ordered. (I will copy a section for you to see). The Director wants it to be compiled into an easy to read, 1 test with totals. The way i get the data is broken down by site (we have 5). So, i may have between 1-5 rows of the same test with a total for each. I want to set up a Macro/Script that would go through the report and automatically add the same test codes together. My long term goal is to have it pull the Test Number, Test Name and Total Count into a separate worksheet, with the Total Count being the count of all the same tests.

see attached data: ...

Trying To Build Automated Schedule?

Jun 23, 2014

I have been trying to create a macro that would create a schedule for me based on date and a product type. In columns K-N I have an IF statement that tells when a shipment would need to arrive in a row that corresponds with a date (column A is 1/1/2015 - 12/31/2015). On the next page I would like to generate a schedule that lists the dates that all of the products are needed in chronological order. I've tried to use custom functions like finding the nth_occurence but it just gets way too messy with so many shipments.

Automated User Logging

Oct 1, 2009

I keep a spreadsheet with the 50 or so wireless phones in our "lab". When someone checks them out, the rules are that they change the cell under Available to "NO" and add their user ID. When they return the device, they change the Available cell back to "YES". What I want is a log of who checked out the device, and when... which would be kept in "sheet 2".

I attached a small spreadsheet with the same columns and information you would see in the regular spread sheet. Sorry, I would rather have put it here, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

The spreadsheet has code which updates the "Counter" when someone checks out a device. Many thanks to the "Rocket Scientist" who helped me with that.

Automated Web Query And Parsing

Nov 28, 2009

I am attempting to automatically (once a week) pull down the data from this site ( which is posted in a csv and parse it. While this may seem to be a simple process, the people who posted the CSV did not take into account that there are dollar values in the data in the millions and billions. As a result, a normal comma parse does not work since it splits the values.

Automated Email Using DATE

Jul 18, 2013

Making an excel program that will automatically Email 5 people with either the whole document, a link to the doc, or just an email using the cells to inform them on what needs to be checked. And I don't even know where to start.

There will be a spreadsheet with everyone's name going down in column A, and then in the row next to the name it'll have a date of when they were put on it. It'll then have another date of the time they need to have done certain things, like see the doctor or get a class done, so when the current date reaches the date in the column the cell that is the same date will turn red, and the document will be mailed to 5 of the higher ups to inform them they need to check on this Marine to see if he has accomplished whatever task has expired.

Ive been trying to research a lot of this on my own, but ran into problem where the current outlook version does not suppose the command DATE within an excel, so I need to make a database using multiple excel sheets using Visual Basic(or so I'm told now).

Automated Copying Of Data

Jun 15, 2006

I use daily an Excel workbook that comprises 6 sheets. The first sheet has some very clever vba which at the click of a button converts the data in it to an xml file. I have looked through this vba and have on occasions, modified it slightly, sometimes successfully, sometimes not!! This is what I am wanting to do...... At the moment my data is entered into a different sheet in the workbook. This is because there is also additional information on this sheet that is not required on sheet 1. When a row in this sheet is completed the part of the row that is required is copy and pasted to the next available row on sheet 1. I then go back to where it was copied from and fill that row in a different colour to show me that it has been 'processed'

Although Sheet 1 is capable of 500 rows (set in the vba), I always produce my xml file from it when I get 20 rows of data. So, what I would like to do is be able to click a button, or a key press to:- copy part of a row of sheet 2. paste that into the next available row in sheet 1 ( upto a max of 20 rows)change the complete row of the copied data in sheet 2 to a different colour (preferably 'fill')

Automated Copy And Paste

Feb 6, 2007

I've got a list of 50,000 book titles in one column, with thousands of sets of between 2 to 5 duplicate titles. The second column has one unique summary per set of duplicate titles. I want to duplicate this summary to the remaining duplicate titles of the set (their 2nd column cells are blank). The third column describes the general condition of each book, and the fourth the asking price. I have been manually copying and pasting, but this is very time consuming. Is there a simple routine that can do this?

Automated Import Of Multiple TXT Files?

Jan 9, 2014

I import into my website a standard .csv file that contains product details from my supplier. Columns contain info such as RRP, Wholesale Price etc and rows for each product. For some reason thats only known to my supplier the text descriptions of each of the products are held on a seperate .txt file, in a separate folder with the .txt filename recorded one of the columns cells, one for each product. There are 1000's of products, each with its own .txt file such as 38675.txt, 37828.txt. As you can imagine to copy and paste into each products cell or to manually import each .txt will take the rest of my life.

how I could automate the input of the diferent .txt contents into the required cells.

Msgbox Macro For Automated Vlookup

Apr 6, 2007

I am writing a macro for people at work to use to automatically vlook-up data from another spreadsheet.

I wanted to base it along the use of a msgbox as they are not the most tech-savy people.

I want the msgbox dialogue to go something like this -

Which spreadsheet do you want to pull in data from?

The user browses to the file they want

Which columns do you want to transfer?

The user types in the columns

Which columns do you want them pasted to (in new sheet)?

The user types in the columns they want to paste to
and then macro does the vlook-up.
