I am looking for is VB code to firstly have a message box with an input box on (that bit i can do). The text and number put into the message box is then used to search the table for the information that relates to it.
The ideal would be for the code to find the data and then copy it either to the clipboard or to a section of the workbook.
The tables I am searching can be put into which ever format is easiest. Below is an example table;
Below is a message box with an input bar inside the message box. I am able to put a prompt message on top of the input bar but i am finding it difficult to enter another message underneath the box. I want to have the text "Continue?".
This is what the promt message with the input box looks like : Untitled.png
So basically right underneath the input bar i would like to have the word "Continue?"
I have , within a workbook multiple worksheets which have multiple cells with a certain DATA VALIDATION MESSAGE. I am trying to write a macro to sum up all those cells which have a common DATA VALIDATION MESSAGE.
is it posible to control the positioning of the pop-up data validation input messsage box via vba? As often it obscures the view of critical cells below. You can manually click and drag it to a desired position manually. Mana users are not aware of that. It would be desirable to reposition it elsewhere rogramatically.
I am using data validation input messages for data entry tips/definitions. The data entry cells are grouped in small tables (about 5 rows X 6 columns) so when the user clicks on a cell, the data validation input message box pops up next to the active cell. This covers the adjacent cells which need to be completed as well.
If I drag the message box over to right of the input table, the messages for the other cells stay in the new location as well. However, Excel doesn't remember this location the next time the workbook is opened.
Is there a way to set the location of the message box or some other way to achieve the same objective of having text boxes pop up in a defined location when a cell is activated?
I want to inform my users via a message box if they have not entered the previous month's information. The months are populated via a User form using a combo box selection. The months start from April through to March and are entered into the worksheet range ("aa3").
Data is entered monthly by the team. I don't know how to begin with this. I've managed to inform them when they've already entered that months information, but I don't know where to begin with this.
I currently have 6 cells that Have a Validation Criteria of a "List". I'm using the Input Message on the Data Validation box. I need to have this Input Message Pinned to a specific area on my worksheet. Each time that I exit and reopen the file the Input Message returns to the Area around the dropdown box. The input message is different for each of the 6 cells.
Cells A1 to A10 contain names of different cars, what i would like to do in VBA is when i select any individual cell to the right of these the name of the car appears as a message (as if i had gone DATA -> VALIDATION -> INPUT MESSAGE -> CARS NAME).
Tried positioning a Userform next to the active cell but when i scroll down the page and select a cell the userform is to far down the screen to be seen.
in column A of a spreadsheet a date needs to be entered manually, however i cannot have it so it can be backdated or a weekend. I have seen a message box pop up if you try and enter a date prior to today saying , Please enter todays date , then gives you an option Retry Or Cancel. But im not familiar with this function.
Is it possible to have this if a date is enter and is either a weekend or a date less than today ?
A user inputs a string into a message box. A particular cell on a worksheet is then given the value of this string. I would like to have this cell automatically format to Wrap Text if the string is longer than 100 characters and skip to the next line after each 100 characters. However, if 101th character is part of a word, then that word would be on the next line. If the string is less than 100 characters then the cell is simply given the value of the inputted string ( I know how to do this )
I want to sort the information that will be displayed in a message box just before it's displayed, is this possible. I can't do this in the worksheet because it would conflict with how I have the worksheet sorted already. Here's the last portion of the code that will display what I want in the message box. I want to sort by the... Requested on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 2).Text & " this column has a date and time in it and I want the sort to use this information to sort the message box.
If .Cells(i, "A").Value = mpTestName Then
mpMessage = mpMessage & mpNames.Cells(i, 1).Value & _ " (Requested on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 2).Text & ", Leave type: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 3).Value & _ ", Start Date on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 4).Text & ", End Date on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 5).Text & ")" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine
End If Next i
If mpMessage "" Then
MsgBox mpMessage, vbOKOnly + vbInformation Else
MsgBox "Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah", vbOKOnly + vbInformation End If End With End Sub
When the user enters a date (A1), that date is cross-referenced with a database to determine 1 of 3 results, in which the results are displayed in A3 as follows - Date out of range. (value="DOR"), No records exist. (Value="NRE"), Records exist. (Value="RE").
Once the date is entered and the corresponding value determined, I would like to have a ppo-up message appear with options:
Date out of Range. Message: "Date falls out of range of operating season. Please re-enter." ** I think I can use validation to take care of this. **
Message "Would you like to import data?" Yes - open external application No - default A1 to current date and await user input
Records Exist. Message " x Diamond Records; y Field Records; z Court Records " where x y z are numeric values based on lookup from the referenced database Message "Proceed to data" Yes - takes used to next new worksheep No - default A1 to current date and await user input
How / where do I code this to activate after the user enters a valid date?
I have been using the GetOpenFileName method and a message box to return the filepath of a file and saving the filepath in a variable called Filepath. This worked just fine.
What I want to be able to do is display the the file path at any time in a message box, but not sure how to do this. I tried displaying the message box in a form and was going to look for some way to call the form, but the form does not return the message.
My code for this is as follows:
Module 1 Sub getfilepath() Dim filepath As String filepath = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*", Title:="Select a file") UserForm1.Show End Sub
Userform 1 Private Sub OkButton_Click() Unload UserForm1 End Sub...........
I am just having a problem where at the end of my macro, the macro is looking for a value in a cell and there is no value at the end of the game for it to paste so I get an error. Instead of getting an error, I would like the macro to display, "You win!", if cell e1 is =1, "You lose!", if cell e1 is =2, and "tie game", if cell e1 is =0.
I'm a novice at VBA and I want a dialog box to display a welcome message once the user opens the excel file (worksheet). I can write the code to display a MsgBox but I can't make it to display the MsgBox once the file is open. I'm learning VBA by trial and error.
I have multiple data validations with input messages. For the new user, this is handy, but for the person that does this a lot, they get in the way. When I open the sheet, I can move one message to the side of the page and the rest of them come up at the same spot but when I save, exit, and reopen, the message comes up beside the cell and I would like it to always stay to the side of the page.
I have a spreadsheet and a macro that creates a new sheet and enters some data into the sheet. The user gets to make some changes to the created sheet and then prints it out. I was wandering if there was any way to have a message coming up every 10 minutes remindnig the user about the new sheet untill it was printed out and then the warnings would stop. Could anyone sugest a good way to do that?
I want to display a message box to user upon opening a file. When the message box is displayed I want to display two buttons.
Button 1 = “Continue” Button 2 = “Cancel”
If the user selects button 1 (“Continue”), I want the file to remain open and the message box will close. If the user selects button 2 (“Cancel”), I want the file to close.
There is one condition that must be met for the “Continue” button. The message contains some disclaimer information. When the message box first appears on the screen, the “Continue” button is disabled. To make the “Continue” button active, I want to add a Check Box to the Message Box with a caption that reads “I agree to the Terms and Conditions”. Once the user places a checkmark in the Check Box, the “Continue” button will become active.
I have a workbook that can open a URL into IE when a project number is entered in an input box.
What I would like to happen is that if the project number entered does not have a URL against it and the value is #N/A, then the message box will display "Project does not exist". However if the number does exist, I want a different message box to be displayed which is a yes/no box.
The code below is what I have tried which works fine if the cell value is #N/A but when it is not it throws an Run-Time error 13: Type mismatch
Code: Sub SearchPidsMessageBox() Dim Answer As String Dim MyNote As String
