I am trying to create a macro that will create a number of check boxes, which are linked different cells. I have had some success in creating multiple check boxes and having them at the destination I want the problem is that instead of linking to different cells they are all linked to the same cell. I have attached a sample workbook SAMPLE.xlsx

Creating Multiple Check Boxes Macro

Nov 4, 2009

I would like to be able to create multiple check boxes that will accomplish 2 things.

1. When Checked will display a date in the cell one column to the right.
2. When checked will change colors

Secondly, since i will need to make several hundred of these I would like a macro that will allow me to define how the check box is to behave and then have a macro which will allow me to define all of the settings and then input the number of check boxes that I want and it will create that many boxes.

I recall seeing a macro on here some time ago (at least 1 month prior but no more than 6 months prior) which allowed you to type into a form how many check boxes or option boxes you wanted to create in your workbook, and then it would create that many.

Macro To Link Check Boxes To Cells

Feb 8, 2008

I have a spreadsheet setup which includes a number of checkboxes set up using the forms toolbar.

I would like to link each of these checkboxes (in sheet1) to a cell reference in sheet2. I'm trying to write a macro that will do this for me to save me right clicking, choosing format control etc for each checkbox.

I found the code on this page:
which appears to be similar to what I am trying to achieve. In this case it creates the checkboxes in cells B3:B20 and links them to C3:C20.

I have already created all the checkboxes, and wish to use a macro to link them (for example) to C3:C20 in sheet2.

Create An Endless Column Of Numbers And Check Boxes

Aug 8, 2007

I have some code which, which I have modified it to create check boxes for all rows of data, but when I run it, it begins to wipe out the data, and create an endless column of numbers and check boxes. Here is the code:

Sub SelectCell()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Z As Range
Set Z = Cells(1, 1).EntireColumn. Find("*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)
For i = 2 To Z
Range("A" & i) = i
Set cll = Range("A" & i).Offset(0, 1)
For Each shp In ActiveSheet.Shapes
If Left(shp.Name, 8) = "CheckBox" And shp.TopLeftCell.Address = cll.Address Then
Exit For.......................

I have tried to set it to recognize how many rows are filled with number, give that to variable Z and then apply the code but it simply does not work.

Inserting Multiple Check Boxes

Feb 22, 2010

Is there a way to a mass insert of Check Boxes without the cell link all being the same cell? I have a huge list of items that I want to put a check box next to each one. This way when my warehouse people check it off in the sheet one of the columns will read "Available".

Problem is when I put the first box in and cell link it to E4, and then copy and paste it, all the boxes toggle based on one another. Otherwise I have to put in 584 check boxes. Solutions or other recommendations are gladly welcome.

Also, is "True/False" the only available "response" when using Check boxes? (I Know I can write an equation based on the true false, but I am just curious)

Multiple Questionnaire Check Boxes Limited To X Responses

Jun 1, 2008

As part of an audit program I have a questionnaire. One of the questions has 10 check boxes, one with a combo box and one with a text box. The user will check at least 2 or more answers, but not all 10. (2-4 average). I dont want to link the answers to specific cells, because I dont want the answers to display with blank rows between answer on the sheet. I want the answers to display in 2 columns evenly distributed.

I would prefer, to not have to run a macro, if possible, but the only way I could see to do this is a very long if statement base on every combination of answers. If the only way to do this is thru a macro, I would prefer to tie it to the printing of the sheet, or I could make it part of an error checking macro I plan to do. The actual question is in the attached file

Creating Price Calculator Using Dropdown Boxes For Multiple BOMs

Apr 22, 2014

I am trying to create a price calculator for a particular product line which has multiple sizes and configurations. I would like to use drop down boxes so the user can select the size, type and attachments which will be narrowed down by the previous selections.

I would like the formula to be able to calculate the cost of the components based on the selections made. Based on some research I believe this can be achieved using data validation, indirect function and the vlookup function, however; I'm not quite sure how to go about this.

I have attached the document I have started for reference.

Multiple IF Statements Check If Words Are Written In Certian Boxes

Aug 15, 2007

I am trying to write a formula that will do multiple IF statements checking to see if words are written in certian boxes and if so to do certian things and I need help, never done multiple IF statements in one formula before and can't find anything in the books I have or on the web.

= IF(D30 = "Oceanic",
IF(D35 = "Yes",
Both True
(((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31) * 0.15) + ((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + (D31 + 4500)),

Oceanic = "Oceanic", D35 = "No"
(((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31) * 0.15) + ((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31)

Oceanic = False, D35 = "Yes"
((d32 * 4) + (d33 * 5) + (d34 * 9) + (4500 + d31))

Both False
((d32 * 4) + (d33 * 5) + (d34 * 9))

I got:

= IF(D30 = "Oceanic", IF(D35 = "Yes", (((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31) * 0.15) + ((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + (D31 + 4500)), (((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31) * 0.15) + ((D32 * 4) + (D33 * 5) + (D34 * 9) + D31), ((d32 * 4) + (d33 * 5) + (d34 * 9) + (4500 + d31)), ((d32 * 4) + (d33 * 5) + (d34 * 9))

Excel 2010 :: Create Macro Button To Clear Multiple Cells On Multiple Worksheets?

Jul 2, 2014

I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.

On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells

B4 & B5
C4, C22 & C41
D4 & D5
E4,E5, E22,E23,E41 &E 42

On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells

D4 & D5
E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42

It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead

Check Multiple Cells, Fire Macro Based On Result

Jul 14, 2007

I have three cells where a user will input data, in some cases (2T Weld Condition) they will only enter in B12 and C12, but in the case of a 3T weld they will also enter data in the D12 cell. I then use a formula to check for the thinnest material and that is entered into another cell with a formula, B14. I then need to check the value in B14 to verify if it is above zero, but below 0.65 (mm). If it is then I would like to have a message appear on the screen notifying the user that they are outside the acceptable range.

I cannot figure out how to use the information in cell B14 because it is a formula and my code only works with a direct value. The code I am using works if I point to one of the three input cells, B12, C12 or D12. How do I use the information in B14 to work with the code below.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$B$12" Then
If Target.Value < 0.65 Then
Run "MyMacro"
End If
End If
End Sub

MyMacro loads a userform with buttons, etc.

Formatting ("check Boxes" And Other Certain Cells Can Be Worked With)

May 1, 2009

I am having issues formatting an excel sheet. Many of its parts seem unaccessable in excel, at least to my knowledge. What confuses me is that the "check boxes" and other certain cells can be worked with, while others including rows and columns can't. How do I format it so that I can work with all of its parts in excel like a normal worksheet?

Check All Check Boxes With CheckBox

Sep 9, 2007

I am creating a userform with 10 checkboxes. The first 9 checkboxes are user options. I want the 10th check box to be a "Select All" option i.e. if the 10th checkbox is checked all the other 9 options are deemed to have been selected.

The way I want the display to work is that if the 10th checkbox is ticked all other checkboxes are cleared. Also if the 10th checkbox is ticked and any of the other check boxes is selected then the 10th checkbox should be selected.

I have tried coding this up but the checkboxes don't seem to operate as desired. I placed some code on the click event for the last option button to set the vlaue for all other buttons to false. This works but the 10th check box doesn't get ticked itself. When I try to code up the other bit I get similar issues.

Macro - Loop Through Worksheets And Update Linked Cells

Jul 19, 2012

I have a Database and every entry in the database has its own corresponding sheet with the data in a more viewer-friendly format. I want to assign a macro to a button to loop through all the sheets, copy the cells and paste to the database (to update the database).

Also, nothing prevents the user from deleting the sheets or mixing them. So is there a way to take the reference number from the database in column B, search for the corresponding sheet which has the reference number in cell B3 and then update it accordingly.

Sub Button19_Click()
Dim WS_Count As Integer
Dim I As Integer

Creating Master Database With Linked Columns?

Jul 1, 2013

I am working on creating a medical master database. I have a master sheet with a huge number of columns. I have a couple of guys working with me, and they have their own sheets in the workbook.

So here is what I would like to do: anytime one of the guys enters data into his respective worksheet, I want the data to be copied over to the master sheet in a new entry.

The columns among the worksheets are different, and I would like the data to automatically sort in the appropriate column on the master sheet when it is copied.

I have attached a copy of the workbook.

I have included an example of what I would like to see. For example, if Charles puts in an entry in his worksheet, a new entry is created on the master sheet with the information from Charles' sheet sorted in the appropriate columns.

I have 50 check boxes not on a user form, but on spreadsheet. I attached a button that says "Clear All" (meaning 'clear all checkboxes'). I can write a sub smth like

For i=1 To 50
Checkbox............ .Value=False
Next i

I just cannot figure out the syntax.
