Disable Command Button (ActiveX) Until Next Day Once Pressed
Aug 26, 2013
I have made an excel workbook detailing team performance that all of my team have access to and that requires updating once a day. The first person to access the workbook each day presses a Command Button that updates the workbook and inserts a time/date stamp. However, other members of the team go into the workbook and update it again the same day which then affects the data being reported.
I know i should probably just sack them for not being able to read the time and date but HR would not like that so is there a way to disable CommandButton1 (ActiveX) so that once it is pressed it is disables until the next day?
I have a workbook with about 53 worksheets one for every week in the year. They are named as follows: VA-1-1-09 TO VA 12-28-09 All sheets are hidden except the (VA-1-1-09)
What I am trying to do is create some logic that would keep all 52 sheets Very hidden except sheet VA-1-1-09 Till the second week starts at that time what I would like to see happen sheet VA-1-5-09 come out of very hidden and appear visible and send sheet VA-1-1-09 to just a hidden state. I like to have this happen for every week of the year? If this can happen automatically that would be great however a command button clicked once a week would do the trick as well.
I have created an ActiveX command button and the text on the button looks crude. I know that is not very descriptive but I am unsure how to describe it. The text looks jagged and some letters are missing chunks of their letters. The font I have chosen is Calibri.
If I create a Form Controls button I do not have this problem but I want the button to have a particular background color so I do not believe I can use a Form Controls button.
I do not know why the other Calibri text on the worksheet looks fine while the ActiveX Calibri text does not. The attached image shows the two buttons with the top one being the ActiveX button while the bottom is a Forms button.
The code below is supposed to disable the appropriate command buttons when it's associated cell values are 0.
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() If Range("C17").Value = 0 Then ActiveSheet.CommandButton7.Enabled = False ActiveSheet.CommandButton4.Enabled = False Else ActiveSheet.CommandButton7.Enabled = True ActiveSheet.CommandButton4.Enabled = True End If
Not working ..... no buttons are disabled even with their cells are zero. Did I forget something?
I am making a timesheet which has a UserForm with textbox and 3 command buttons namely Search, IN and OUT. The program works like this, user type his id no., then clicks on search, once id match command buttons for IN and OUT are enabled. User clicks on IN button then current time which tags as NOW() will be pasted on the worksheet. Same goes with the OUT button. I was able to make them work that way. The problem here now is, the data being entered are vulnerable for data-re entry. What I mean is, if a certain user has already a recorded IN time, if he clicks on the IN time again, the data will be overwritten. Is there a way that once the user has already a recorded IN time, the IN button will be disabled for that user since he has already a recorded IN data?
I am trying to disable a command button if 4 textboxes are empty. I can make it work if one of the textboxes are empty but not all of them. this is what i have so far.
Private Sub TXT3_Change() If TXT3.Value = "" Or TXT4.Value = "" Or TXT5 = "" Or TXT6 = "" Then CommandButton13.Enabled = False End If If TXT3.Value "" Then CommandButton13.Enabled = True End If End Sub
I have created a userform on VBA which our clients will use. There are a number of different userforms which have different questions to make up the tool. At the end of each field (text box) there is a submit button (command button) which needs to be pressed. When the user presses next to move onto the next userform I need a control in place that ensures all of the 'submit' buttons have been pressed. If not i want something to say, 'you have not pressed all the submit buttons'. At the minute I have a simple reminder message box before they move onto the next screen but i need this control to be tightned.
Dim r As Long Dim c As Long Dim s As Worksheet 'Set s = Active.Worksheet( Name) Dim Error As String ' Dim ws As Worksheet Dim ValorMensaje As Long
'Turn off Screen refresh Application. ScreenUpdating = False
'Use Cells(Row, Column) for range adddress r = ActiveCell.Row c = ActiveCell.Column ..................................
How can I simultaneously with this code put data from textboxes to Active sheet and sheet "Izpisi". So when the button Add(dodaj) is pressed the data goes to active sheet and sheet ("Izpisi") at the same time
I have a table of data which contains company names, the number of high risk policies, number of low risk policies, and the percentage of high risk policies (compared to total policies).
What I want to do is for people to be able to select up to six of these companies and press a button that says 'create graph' and it creates a graph which shows the number of high risk and low risk in a stacked bar, and the percentage on a separate axis as a line. I know how to manually create this graph no problem, but to be able to dynamically create one from selected companies would be awesome.
To start with I have created six drop downs where you can select the company name as I image the macro will need to know which companies' data to look for in the source table.
I have a situation with a spreadsheet i'm working on.
Basically, when a button is pressed I want it to search for all rows which have a "yes" in an offload column (Column AS, on the sheet "Active") (So it can be yes or no).
If it finds a yes, I need it to move the whole row in to a new sheet called "inactive", then move the remaining results up.
I have taken and played about with a different VBA code, but i'm not sure it's even the right line!
Here is what I have :
Sub Refresh() ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Column = 45 Then If UCase(Target.Value) = "Yes" Then Target.EntireRow.Copy Destination:=Sheets("Inactive"). _ Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1) Target.EntireRow.Delete End If End If End Sub
I've several check boxes on a worksheet. Some of the check boxes control the values of other through the _click event. However, when I try to change the value the event attached to the control in questions fires.
application.enableevents = False
would prevent events being fire from within the macro but this only seems to work when I step through the code.
I understand that I could set a global variable to do this and will probably go down this route anyway - but I am interested to know how/when I should be using the EnableEvent method (as I am sure this should be the way that I use it)
I have created a button name "Add Power Source" on excel sheet that adds a table and a button(named "Add Row") to the sheet.Whenever the user clicks the "add power source" button a table and a "Add new row " button is created .This "Add new row" button is used to add rows to the table. Now suppose the user has pressed the "add power source" button 5 times,so that there will be five table on sheet and each having a "add new row " button associated with it.When the user wants to add a new row to the table 2 say .How will I come to know in which table the rows are to be added using VBA.
how to get some command buttons to stick in one place? I currently have two in a summary sheet. Each button runs a similar code which clears and deletes (by shifting cells upward) at the start of the process, then populates data.
It's rather annoying though that I cant have the buttons stick to one zone, they end up moving left or right depending on which button I press. Each report also changes column sizes, dont know if that's relevant?
On a worksheet, I have several commandbuttons. For many of the buttons the name in the "name box" is different than the name in the "(name)" field under Properties.
Researching this, I found this on msdn2.microsoft.com:
An ActiveX control on a sheet has two names: the name of the shape that contains the control, which you can see in the Name box when you view the sheet, and the code name for the control, which you can see in the cell to the right of (Name) in the Properties window. When you first add a control to a sheet, the shape name and code name match. However, if you change either the shape name or code name, the other isn't automatically changed to match.
So, in my case, one button has: In the name box: "CommandButton5" In the (name) properties field: "RunProcess"
The real problem arises when I'm using code to loop through the objects on the worksheet, and build an array of the object names. I'm trying to match the name of the buttons to their click events. In the code, "btn.name" returns the name found in the "name box". The one that I want is the name in the "(name)" field under properties because this is the one that matches the click event.
How can I determine, in code, what is entered in the "(name)" field for an object?
I want to be able to call one user form from multiple ActiveX command buttons. The problem is, the number of command buttons depends on user input on another worksheet, so it's variable.
I've renamed all of the command buttons so they are named "CommandButton" & i, where i is an integer between 1 and, say, 200. I want each of these buttons to direct to the same UserForm where additional information can be entered.
I can't think of a way around the event-handler procedure name.
Sub [Command Button Name]_Click
to call the User Form. I won't know the command button names, because I won't know how many there are (max i) until the user inputs.
Basically, I want to create a For loop through the max i and have the event-handlers call the user form
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
Is there a way in VBA to reference the activeX button which has been clicked? Like a ThisWorkbook equivalent for a button?
I have quite a few button whereby they set a parameter for a procedure 'TrendData' based on the row they sit in. Currently I just have the row number hard coded i.e. Call TrendData(5) but I want to amend this so that when I add a row it doesn't offset all my buttons.
However instead of typing CommandButton3, CommandButton4, etc. I would like the code to know which button had been clicked and just use that?
I have searched high and low and cannot seem to find an answer. I have inserted an ActiveX button in a cell to run 3 macros when pressed. I cannot get the 4-letter name on the button to appear centered on the button, unless I make the button larger than the cell, which I do not want to do.
