Trying To Get My Sheets Back To Move From Cell To Cell With The Arrow Keys Please

Nov 3, 2008

I know this is a sooo basic question but I can not for the life of me remember how.....

when I am on a excel sheet I can not seem to move from quare to square qiththe arrow keys.
It just now takes me all the way to the left or all the way to the right and not from cell to cell from left to right.

I know its something rather simple yet I can not seem to figure this out.

I have no problem with this on 2003pro.

Rotate Arrow Image To A Value Entered In Cell (dropdown Of Values Between 0 And 180)

Mar 1, 2013

I want to rotate an arrow image to exactly a value entered in a cell (dropdown of values between 0 and 180)

e.g. if the value is 0 it should point south, if East or West 90+ or - and if pointing North 180. Also all value between these e.g. 45 for South East or South West etc.

I need some VBA I guess to do this but I don't know how.

When the arrow has stopped, I need the macro to end cleanly so that the user can input other values.

Is this even possible?

Excel 2010 :: Vertical Arrow Keys Moving Out Of The Cell When Editing It

Aug 5, 2014

I am having this weird problem. The work laptop I received with excel 2010 does not allow me to use the vertical arrow keys when navigating through multiple lines when editing a cell. When editing the cell and I press the up or down arrow key, instead of moving to the next line within the cell, the cursor moves to the next cell. Is there a way / an option to have this fixed?

Shift Key Down Arrow

Apr 22, 2006

1:
Does a code exist to do Shift Key_Arrow Right, Arrow Down and then select that range to Copy?

I know the arrows codes but was told by someone no code can ever exist for a Shift Key.

I need to select a range after a "Search For" but the Range is not determined by the actual Cell ranges.

My Code for Arrow keys are:

'Selection.Offset(0, 1).Select '*Right*
'Selection.Offset(0, -1).Select '*Left*
'Selection.Offset(-1, 0).Select '*Up*
'Selection.Offset(1, 0).Select '*Down*
'Selection.Offset(3, 0).Select '*Down * 3 Cells

2:
What is the macro code to insert more than 1 row ?

The code I use to insert 1 Row is :

Selection.EntireRow.Insert

Sometimes I need to insert 25 rows.

Run Macro When Right Arrow Key Pressed

Apr 1, 2009

I have Sheet2 containing Supplier data in 2 columns - SupplierTAxCode and SupplierName (unsorted)

Sheet1 contains the Expenses section.

In Sheet1, column E6 to E1000, after inputting each SupplierTAxCode and pressing the RIGHT ARROW key, I would like to automatically get the SupplierName in column F6 to F1000 - from the corresponding data in Sheet2

In the event that the input in any of the cells in E6 to E1000 does not exist in SupplierTAxCode in Sheet2, would it be possible at the same time, to change the background color of the adjacent cell (SupplierName) in column F6 to F1000 at the same time - as a reminder to add those to the Supplier data in Sheet2 at a later date.

I could use Index Match and Conditional Formatting, but am concerned about the file sizes.

Add Shape (Arrow) To Worksheet

Apr 18, 2008

This one has me baffled: I recorded a macro to add a shape to a worksheet, very simple. When I try and run it it comes up with a "The specified value is out of range" error. I've searched the net and it seems to come up where the file has been converted from an earlier version of excel (which this file has) but I haven't been able to find a work around for it. The relevant code is

With ActiveSheet
.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeLeftArrow, 205.5, 312#, 144#, 23.25).Select

Add Scroll Arrow To ActiveX Combobox?

Mar 20, 2013

I have an application were I would like to use an Active X combo box instead of a regular dropdown list. The list contains 64 items and the text becomes very small in a standard dropdown list. Using an Active X Combo Box allows me to enlarge the text for easier viewing but with 64 items the list tends to run off the sheet. Is their a switch or some other way (scrolling) to make it more viewer friendly?

Can Click Little Filter Arrow Without A Mouse?

Jul 18, 2013

In excel when you have filters on for all columns there is a little bitty square box with a little down arrow (like an upside down triangle) in the lower right corner of every cell in the top row (the header row) and I can't find a way to select one of those little itty bitty down arrows without using a mouse - -

Is there any way to select one of those little down arrows in the little filter box icon thingy with the keyboard?? I can't figure it out.

I just want to select the little arrow so that the filter dialog box opens - I am trying to create a keyboard macro that will use the 'BEGINS WITH' macro but when i record the macro it uses the same word for the "BEGINS WITH" parameter every time and I want it to use the word in the current clipboard - can't seem to write that.

Trigger A Macro On Arrow Keys

Apr 24, 2007

I'm creating a small Excel RPG where the player moves the around a blank worksheet with the walls of a maze appearing as you approach them (think dark corridors, you can see only 1 cell in all directions around you).

The players current location is shown by excel setting the activecell to the players location. Currently I have four buttons labeled Up, Down, Left and Right which the player clicks to move in the desired direction.

The testers were frequently missing the four movement buttons and this would put the activecell outside of the maze next to one of the buttons. They'd have to move it back manually.

I would like for the players to move around using the arrow keys to use the activecell, as you would normally move around a sheet... but before each movement there is a procedure that check IF the player can move in the desired direction or not (cell borders used for walls), and then once they've moved there are more procedures to check for monsters treasure chests etc.

How can I make the arrow keys trigger the macros that the Up, Down, Left and Right buttons currently trigger, and not just move the activecell?

Code Hides The Arrow In Column

Mar 11, 2009

I have a sheet that is autofiltered. Once a user autofilters columns 20, I would like to hide the arrow for that column so the user can no longer autofilter using that column. When I run the code - it hides the arrow in column 20, but then it unfilters all the data . . . can I hide the arrow in column 20 but keep the data as it was filtered before the code ran.

Dim c As Range
Dim i As Integer
i = Cells(2, 1).End(xlToRight).Column
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each c In Range(Cells(2, 1), Cells(1, i))
If c.Column = 20 Then
c.AutoFilter Field:=c.Column, _
Visibledropdown:=False
End If
Next

Validation Drop-down Arrow Not Showing

Nov 2, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with a number of columns regulated by Data Validation.

They are linked to lists with DV, which normally generates a nice drop-down box when you click on the cells.

I inserted a column into the spreadsheet, and now DV doesn't generate a drop-box anymore! In any of the columns! The "In-cell dropdown" box is still checked in my Data Validation screen, and the cells are still bound by validation to only conform to the lists.

Can anyone think of why these boxes would have disappeared? I've shut down Excel and re-opened the file in case it was a momentary glitch. I've deleted the inserted column... In short, I've tried everything I can think of.

Even if I remove Data Validation from the columns, and re-instate it with the "In-cell dropdown" box checked, I still don't get my drop-boxes.

I would be totally happy to send my complete file to anyone who wants it (although it's a bit big, as I have to send the directory structure if you don't want to get an error, about 1 MB), but anyhow - I'm reasonably desparate to get the drop-boxes back in.

Formula Using Arrow Icons To Show Trend

Nov 16, 2009

I'm trying to create a formula where I can show the trend of two values from one month to the next that shows wheather the results went up or down in a positive or negetive value. For example:

If I have a transfer % of 18% in October and November MTD is at 17% - the arrow would then reflect downward showing in green, as the lower percentage is better. but I need the arrow to show upward in Red if say the value for November MTD was 19% instead.

I tried conditional formatting and attempted an "If" formula. I must not have all the information to create the formula as it errors out on me. I can create it if only looking to reflect one arrow...

=if(c3<b3,"")

Move To Next UserForm Control With Down Arrow Key Press

Sep 30, 2006

I am trying to setup a shortcut key while in a userform so you can press the page down key and the focus will jump to an "Ok" or "Close" button.

I tried the following keypress procedure without any luck.

Private Sub UserForm_KeyPress(ByVal KeyAscii As MSForms.ReturnInteger)
If KeyAscii = vbKeyPageDown Then
Me.btnClose.SetFocus
End If
End Sub

I even tried a similar test on a textbox control wihtout luck.

Private Sub TextBox1_KeyPress(ByVal KeyAscii As MSForms.ReturnInteger)
If KeyAscii = vbKeyPageDown Then
MsgBox "You Pressed PageDown Key"
End If
End Sub

I should say that this is a form that has a multi-page control on it and the showmodal property set to false.

It's almost like the event doesn't even fire. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work?

2000 - Autofilter, The Drop-down Arrow Turns Blue In Color

Feb 10, 2010

When using the autofilter, the drop-down arrow turns blue in color, i.e., when some filter citerion is being used, the small down-arrow turns a different color as a way of informing the user that a filter is in place. Is there a way to control the color of this? Currently, mine turns blue, but it would be more useful if I could change it to a brilliant color in order to make it contrast more with the default black. Blue is too difficult to be distinguished by my eyes. The autofilter is turned on via a macro. If there a line of code that controls the color.

Conditional Formatting - Objects (Red Arrow Points Down To Signify Negative Change)

Apr 8, 2009

I have two arrows:
- Red Arrow points down to signify negative change
- Green Arrow points up to signify positive change

These arrows look exactly like the Excel 2007 conditional formatting arrows you would apply to a cell - the only difference is that I have inserted them as shapes so I can float them over a graph.

GOAL: Corresponding with the graph, if a cell shows a (+) change, then I display green arrow and hide red arrow. Vice versa for a (-) change.
