How can I set the value of a cell to give the current date when that cell is clicked or given focus. I want A5 to show as blank, nothing there, until I click the cell, or somehow select the cell, and then have it show the the current date. If I want that date I hit tab or enter and it will record it.
If I don't want to record anything i can arrow past it and it will not record anything. If I want to change it I double click or click again(If I'm in the cell already) and I can type over or just put in the date I want.
However If the user records a date in that cell and goes back to that cell do not record the default current date on tab or enter it most be double clicked in order to change it. This is a safety that they don't tab to it and past it and have it changed by mistake. Once a date is recorded they have to double click to change it.
This is not for just one cell but for the range of cells in colum A starting on A5.
I'm trying to get a date picker to open with the current day's date, and am running into some trouble...
I added this line to the Initialize function:
Code: Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() DTPicker.Value = Date End Sub
...and this to a button which opens the form:
Code: Sub Open_frmPatientData() frmPatientData.Show frmPatientData.txtLastName.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtFirstName.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtID.Value = "" frmPatientData.txtDay.Value = DTPicker1.Day frmPatientData.txtMonth.Value = DTPicker1.Month frmPatientData.txtYear.Value = DTPicker1.Year End Sub
and I get a 'Run Time Error 424: Object Required' error on the line frmPatientData.show (in red). If I remove the line from the Initialize event, then everything works fine, but of course the current date isn't shown. What am I doing wrong?
I made a selection and coloring macro, the filter is based on the inputbox that pops up. What I would like to do here is, that when the box pops up it would have a written date in it, which is the today always. And the filter should select all which is 2 weeks later than current date.
Code: Sub kethet() Dim datum As Long Dim most As String LRow = Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
In a new worksheet, I enter the following inputs: Input # 1: 08/26/08 and see 8/26/2008 Input # 2 (in a different cell): 08/26 and see Aug-26 Input # 3 (in the same cell as #2 because I didn't like the result I saw): 08/26/08 and I still see Aug-26
Question: The desired result I would like to see in all three cases is: 8/26/2008 Would someone please explain: 1) How do I set the default date to automatically assume current year if I merely enter 08/26 ? 2) Why entering 08/26 is such a grievous sin that I should so horribly point Excel in the wrong direction - or at least until I reformat that cell?

I am creating a spreadsheet on a British-based system using the d/m/y date system as default, but I am unfortunately entering data using the american m/d/y system and would like to change the default to the american system.
I need a formula for identifying the last cell, of every third cell, that has an numeric entry, of a row. For example, in a range of (F7:V7), I need a formula that examines F7,I7,L7,O7...., and displays the last cell that has a numeric entry, while ignoring the other cells, ie G7, H7, J7, etc.
I have set up a calendar control on a userform and got it to pop up when selecting one of 3 cells on a worksheet. The various bits of code making this work are below.
This code is attached to the Userform.
VB: Private Sub Calendar1_Click() With ActiveCell .Value = Calendar1.Value
What I am struggling with is that I'd like to have the calendar that pops up in cell C18 (which is Date of Birth) default to starting on 1st January 1987 not todays date. Also, if there is a value in either of the 3 cells that use the calendar, then I'd like the calendar to display that date. If the cell is empty then todays date is fine for cells G3 and G26.
A - Date last checked B - Due Date C - Actual Date checked
Currently column B is formatted to Date and simply has =A+84 and will display a date 3 months in future. However if there is no date in column A, then column B displays a default 1900 date.. Is there a way of making this blank if there is no date in col A?
I am new to VBA. Using Excel 2010. I have a date picker on a userform named LtPayCalFm1. I have created a named range on a sheet within the workbook called LQD which is a date. I want the date picker to show the date LQD when the form opens. The code I have is
Private Sub LtPayCalFm1_Initialize() Dim LQD As Range DTPicker1.Value = LQD End Sub
I get Run time error '380': Invalid property value How do I correct this?
I have a spreadsheet that from a button I want to run a macro that will input todays date, the value in cell A1 as the filename into a default dialog box that is at a default file path. I have been trying to do this for several hours and can not completely get it done.
I had set up a long time ago a macro enabled sheet in the XLSTART folder and Template folder. It used to work where any file I opened, if I clicked new sheet, the data from that file would be in sheet2. Now for some reason it's not showing up anymore and just a blank sheet appears.
I need an assistance in setting up a VBA for the default printer in my office. The issue is I want my spreadsheet to be set up to wherever I open the spreadsheet at any computers in the facility. I want the sheet to be printing out directly at the printer in my office only. Is there a way to do this?
I want the combobox cmbBottle to show the second item in its list when the userform shows. The code below achieves this. However, after executing cmbbottle.listindex=1, the program jumps out of the initialization and goes to Private Sub cmbBottle_change() and then executes others subs called under it. I don't want this.
Is there a way to set the combobox to a default, startup display, without triggering the cmbBottle_change event?
(I have looked under the Properties window of combobox in the form view mode and can't see how to set it's value there.)
As per title, I have both Excel 2003 & 2007 installed - I need to set 2003 as the default for opening xls files when double-clicking but can't seem to override 2007 which wants to hog all the action. I've been through the File Types menu and selected the 2003 version of Excel as the default, but it doesn't make the slightest difference.
Somehow I have changed a default setting that I cannot figure out how to change back. I have various templates setup in a "Forms" folder. Normally I go to My Documents, find the template file and double click on it, and the appropriate program (usually either Excel or Word) starts and opens a copy of the template as a document. What happens now is that the program starts and the template itself opens. I have tried going to My Documents and right clicking on the file and what appears to be happening is that the default (highlighted) option is "Open" instead of "New" which is what the default used to be. How do I change it back?--
inability to set a default row height and still allow the occasional row that requires more space (i.e., one of it's cells has multiple lines of wrapped text) to AutoFit if necessary.
Say you have the data shown in NormalSettings.png in an Excel file (see attachments) and you want to have a little more room between the shorter rows, but not have them all set as big as the expanded rows. One way to do this in bulk is to select the entire spreadsheet and set a fixed row height, but this chops off any cells that require more space than your default height (see FixedRowHeight20.png). The only way to fix this is to manually scan through your sheet and individually select all rows with cells that need more room than your preferred row height and AutoFit them (good luck if your spreadsheet is any size...) . If you try selecting the entire sheet and choose Format-Row-Autofit, you're back to the crowded display shown in 'NormalSettings.png'.
My workaround to this annoying problem is this: choose a column that you're not using (I just select the very last column in the sheet by holding down CTRL and pressing the right arrow until the screen stops moving) and highlight the entire column by selecting the column header. Then increase the font size for that column...voila, even your blank rows will now AutoFit to the new font size rather than the font size you are using for your data...effectively increasing your default row height without sacrificing AutoFit capabilities. I find that using 16 as a dummy font size makes my data (which is font size 10, Arial) look nicely spaced out, but experiment and try stuff until you find what you like!
I have had my server removed that I had my default file location, when I go in to change any of my options the first thing it does is go look for this file location and brings back an error stating it cannot find the server. I cannot find anywhere else that I could change it.

I have an excel worksheet with hyperlink formulas in it. If I make any changes to the hyperlink text, the font style changes when I'm done. I don't want the font style to change. Is there some place I can go to designate the default hyperlink text format?
I'm creating a worksheet to be used by 200+ individuals w/varying versions of excel. Is there a way to set the default of autofill, such that it automatically autofills w/o formatting? My template uses conditional formatting to create alternate colored rows, but when autofill is used the color formats fill as well.
I've been asked to make an Excel spreadsheet for work that tracks each employee's gross earnings, deductions, and net earnings, as well as calculates the holiday pay. I'm mostly done, but I've run into a problem.
Holiday pay is 4% of the gross earnings. I've got gross earnings in column B, and the formula in the holiday pay column is =PRODUCT(BX,0.04), where X is the row (i.e. in row 4, it is =PRODUCT(B4,0.04).) However, if the cell in BX is empty, the holiday pay displays as 0.04. So for whatever reason, it is assuming that the value of an empty cell is 1. Now, I can solve this by manually entering 0 into every gross earning cell.
I don't believe this is an excel 2007-specific question, but if it is & should be relocated to a different forum, move or ask me to move it.
I'm writing a personal macro in excel 2007 (win xp pro) that uses a userform to change the sheet name and tab color. The problem is that my option to change the tab color to "None" doesn't actually restore it to the standard light-blue background and blue type.
In Excel I need a particular cell to always have a default value. Say Cell B1 always needs to be 22. If any values are given in Cell A1, then B1 should diaplay that value. And if anyone deletes the value in Cell B1 still by default it should show 22 as the value. Is it possible.
