Defining Variables Using Variables

Apr 27, 2006

I'm trying to loop through a range in excel from access, checking where the titles (in Excel row 1) match with the fields (in a recordset in Access that is passed to the function) - and where they do, I want to dimension a variable to hold the column number - I'm not sure it's possible, but I'd be interested to know either way. The line I'm asking about is at the bottom of the code - the rest of the code is just to give context...

Sub ImportGeneric(rsImported As ADODB.Recordset, rsConfirmed As ADODB.Recordset)
Dim fd As FileDialog
Dim xl As New Excel.Application
Dim wb As Excel.Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim iFilePicked As Integer
Dim strFilePath As String
fd.Filters.Add "Excel files", "*.xls"
fd.ButtonName = "Select"
iFilePicked = fd.Show
If iFilePicked = -1 Then
strFilePath = fd.SelectedItems(1)
Else ..................

Code: Defining Variables

Sep 15, 2008

I'm trying to develop a work spreadsheet template that is to be summarised every fortnight. Our fortnights here go Thurs-Thurs. So I figured I would start with a base date (thurs - Sept 4th) and then have the spreadsheet display the true fortnight ending upon loading. Ultimately this fortnight ending will be used to copy and paste the template information into a summary spreadsheet but for now I am trying to get this intial part working. It's linked to a command button and my attempt at code is below:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Base As Date
Dim Now As Date
Dim Delta As Integer
Dim No_of_Fortnights!
Dim Rounded As Integer
Dim Fract!
Dim Fort_week_end As Date

(Note the following 8 lines are not the problem, they just open the main sheet. The problem is the eights lines starting with the word 'set')

Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Activate
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Range("b3").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=TODAY()"
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Range("b3").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Activate

Defining Rows As Variables

May 25, 2006

What the code does is that it runs in a Master workbook, and searches for XLS files in a defined folder. It opens a file, count, closes the workbook and takes the tallied number of sheets and places it in the master file, column A being File Names and column B as Number of sheets. What I need is for the code to take the file name from column A, run it and then place sheet counts in Column B and then move down the columns until all the counting is done. Currently I am only able to define one row using the range function and i'm at a loss.

'Get file names and enter into Master
Public Sub ShowFolderList()
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
ChDrive "C"
ChDir "C:Documents and SettingsTest Folder"
outrow = 2
Filess = Dir("*.xls")
While Not Filess = ""
Cells(outrow, 1).Value = Filess
outrow = outrow + 1
Filess = Dir()

Defining Variables In Separate Module

Jun 18, 2008

I started plugging away at VB a little over a month a go and i feel i've learnt alot but can see just how limited my knowledge is. how to define all my variables in one module that then will feed into the code on other modules and forms in the workbook where required. For example, my spreadsheet has approx 30 different variables that are called upon by a variety of subs. How do i define all these in one place and then just call on the relevant ones when required rather then having to redefine them for every new sub.

Defining A Range With Variables And Cells Function

Aug 25, 2009

I am trying to make the "A4:A" portion of this line of code generic so it can work in multiple different files. I have defined a variable FirstGridRow that will take care of the '4' but I need to find a way to splice it all together. Essentially I am stuck trying to tack on the ":A". The first piece shows where I am coming from and the second is where I am trying to go to.

Function Back Variables: Function Give Two Or More Output Variables

Jul 27, 2006

Can a Function give two or more output variables. e.g.

Sub a()
x = 5
result = Y(x)
End Sub

Function Y (x As Integer) As Integer
Dim B
B = ... * x
Y = ... * B

this will give back Y as a result. But if I want to get 2 or more output variables (let's say I need to get also B into sub) from one function, how should I do that?
I need this because function works with large matrix and I want to extract some values appeared in between.

Use 2 IF Variables?

Apr 9, 2014

I'm having a hard time understanding how to accomplish what seems to be a simple result.

I need to display one of two words, based on whether or not a pair of values are above or below the criteria.

IF H6 is greater than 5000
IF AB6 is greater than 25000
Display: Double

IF H6 is less than 5000
IF AB6 is greater than 25000
Display: Single

There is no 3rd scenario, even though logically there should be.

Distinguishing Between 3 Variables

Jan 20, 2009

I want to make an excel funktion than can distinguish between 3 variables. The three variables are the outcomes of my first function which are 0, 1 and 2 these IF functions can be seen below:
Then when I have these results I have tried the following function:
By using this function I get an output for 2 (true) and 0 (false), but I would also like an output for 1 (which would be 6 in my work)
It looks like this:
Var 1 58 1
Var 2 4 0
Suggestion 4-6

So in the above case where the sum of var1 and var2 is 1 it is only counted as false for not being 2 and therefore = 4-6 instead of what I would like it to be = 6 (for 1)

IF Function With Three Variables

Feb 14, 2013

I'm having trouble with my logic again :/

Tp std


So I want the Tp in the 3rd column to show the result:

IF AREA is less than or equal to 20, Tp=Tp std / 2

IF AREA is between 20 and 40, Tp=(((AREA-20)/(40-20))*(Tp std/2))+(Tp std/2)

IF AREA is 40 or greater Tp = Tp std

But as one equation

I have just been struggling with the range part.

Why Declare The Variables

Sep 17, 2009

I know that we should declare all variables at the beginning of a subroutine, in fact I'm told it's good practice to use Option explicit to 'force' variables to be declared, my question is why?

If I don't declare a variable the routine still seems to work OK so what is the downside of not declaring them upfront? Is it just for neatness or common practice or is there another reason?

Use Variables In VBA Formulas?

Oct 9, 2011

In VBA, I just want to use an object within a formula that represents rows within a range of cells.

Here's what I mean. I create an variable named "additup":

additup = 2 'This value represents that row number I will want in the following messed up formula:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISNUMBER(RC[-7]),RC[-7]/MAX(range(P(additup:Padditup+6000")),"""")"

Above, the formula checks if the cell that is 7 columns to the left is a number, and if so, divide it by the max value within the range (Col P, Row= additup) : (Col P, Row= additup+6000).

Clearly my problem is VBA syntax.
