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 created a drop down list but notice that the button (the arrow in the square) does not show up unless I click on the cell. Is there a way to show the button at all times so the user knows a drop down list is available?
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?
In the attached file and when I click on Name or ID (B5 or B6) the input msg will appear on the same cell using the validation rule.
Actually I need any input msg to appear in the other area where i put the arrow. I tried to move the input msg to that Irea and it worked great each time i click on B5 or B6 but after closing the file and opening it later.. they will go back to the same place.
I am trying to create the game of snake in VBA as practice, but I cannot find how to use the arrow keys as input. From what I have read it seems that it may not be possible, but how to change the value of a variable every time an arrow key is hit, post how to do so.
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.
I understand the end(x1Down), but i think I am missing something. I just want to go to the next cell left, right or Up, Down from whatever cell is currently selected. How do I replicate a 1 cell move as an arrow key would do?
For some reason, when i use my arrow keys to move from cell to cell it now only scrolls my screen around....What did i do, and how do i change it back? I find it sad that i can write code and this stumped me.
When every I click in a excel box and try to use my arrow keys to move the box example: A3 to A4. All it does is move the page up and down or across. Is there some type of setting on that is not letting me do this. It use to allow me to. Until another employee got on it. I can not start over becouse I have months of work on this book.
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 End With
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?
I'm not sure this is even possible, but I have a long cell that has data validation. Right now, you have to move the mouse all the way over to click on the arrow to see the list. Is there a way (programmatically or otherwise) to make the down arrow show the list when you're in that cell??
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.
I have two spreadsheets, A & B. In spreadsheet A, user will input a contract number and values for the contract. The user inputs the contract number in cell D4. I have linked this cell to cell B1 of spreadsheet B.
I want Excel to
-copy values from spreadsheet A
-then go to spreadsheet B and find the value of B1(which is the contract number entered in cell D4 of spreadsheet A)
- arrow over 14 columns
- then paste
here's the code i have so far. No matter what contract I input in cell D4 of spreadsheet A (when i step through the code) excel always takes me to cell C10 of spreadsheet B!?!?!
note: the code is in a module in spreadsheet A
Sub find_contract() ' ' find_contract Macro ' Macro recorded 03/15/2007 by b944553
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?
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 End Sub
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.
I am relatively new to Excel 2007 and my arrow keys do not navigate cell by cell. When I press the right or left arrow keys, my entire screen shifts to the right or left but the cursor STAYS in the cell where it was. Likewise, when I press the up or down arrow keys the screen shifts up or down but again, the cursor remains where it was. Is there an option somewhere that I need to change?
I am getting a mismatch error on arrow pointed below. whenever a entered is then deleted in the cells i.e. H50 and H51. I've included the workbook here just in case. Is there a way to ignore error message so that it does not to show up??
