Double Click In Cell To Show Current Date And Time
Mar 27, 2008
I would like to be able to track progress of various tasks/occurences by allowing users of a spreadsheet to just click in the appropriate column and in doing so, it would fill in the current time and date. I.E. Column headings would read, "Item Sent to Review", "Item Received From Review", "Item Sent to Specialist", etc. and I want users to be able to double click in a given column to populate with current date/time information,
I am trying to write a formula that will have the cell display todays date if it is after 2:00PM, and if it is before 2:00PM I need the cell to display Today()-1. I have tried several iterations and I'm stumped.
I'm trying to have excel insert a timestamp on a specific range of cells. I have it currently working on one cell, but can for some reason am having trouble getting it to work on the entire range... Here is what I have currently...
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) If Target.Address = "$E$23" Then Target.Value = Time End If End Sub
I would like this to work for the range E23:E28 and F23:F28 I'm sure its something simple that I'm not doing...
I have a little problem (but for me is like a break); I want, when I change some in a cell, in the other cell, show me current date. I try with "today()", but , next day when I open that workbook, in that cell, show me the date coresponding with the next day (normaly).
How ,I can rezolve this? I want to blocked that cell, only view, but no acces for change enithing.
On opening of an excel document is it possible to have a date in a cell that will continuously update. =now() enters the date required but if i was to go into the sheet days or whatever later is there a way that this will update automatically??
I needed a code that would input the current date and time in the cells in column N whenever changes were made to any cells in the row from columns A to M. For example, if I change a name in cell 6D, then cell 6N would automatically change to the current date and time.
I found a useful code on a forum (maybe here, don't know for certain) and modified it to suit my needs (see below). I am however now getting a debugging error suggesting that the second line that reads "Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()" is causing an error.
I am looking to have a macro which will automatically add the username and date to a cell, when the cell above changes (or in this case =x). I have a bit of code from a previous project, but I have changed Target.Row to Target.Column and it is not behaving as I require:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Range("B2:BZ2"), Target) Is Nothing Then Range("C" & Target.Column).Value = Format(Date, "dd-mmm") & " " & Format(Time, "hh:mm") & " by " & (Application.UserName) End If End Sub
See the attachment for the example. What I need is whenever row 3 ="x" I need the corresponding cell in row "d" to update with the latest date, time and username. Please not the macro is currently not active on the sheet as i've added the ' character.
I am trying to run a macro when I double click on a certain cell (D34). The cell has data in it (Southeast NSC). What I am expecting to happen is once I double click on the cell the macro will run the retrieve and I will end up at expense chart page.
The macro I am trying to run is an Essbase retrieve.
I want to be able to double click on a cell in a column. If it has a certain word in it, it will take it to that worksheet. Auto filters are used so these cells can move in a column at any time. This is why I am looking for a code to validate the contents in the cell first.
ie. Cell has the word: BSALT, when double clicked it will take it to the BSALT worksheet.
Cell has the word MLW, when double clicked it will take it to the MLW worksheet.
And so on.
These values are in one column only. If they weren't able to be autofiltered i could do it, but the mere fact that they can move around is giving me trouble.
Normally when I double click on a cell with a formula linked to another spreadsheet, the double click takes you to the source. However, if the cell also has a comment, the double click takes you into the edit comment option and not to the source.
Is it possible to turn off the edit comment option from the double click?
I am looking for assisitance in combining the functionality of two seperate combo box code sets. The first combo box code set allows the combo box to automaticially appear when a user Clicks on a cell that contains a data validation list. The second set of code will have a combo box appear when a user Double-clicks on a cell that contains a data validation list. And the code allows for Named Ranges on a seperate worksheet. I would like to have the functionality of having the combo box to appear when a user Clicks on a cell and not having to Double-click. Also, I would like to have the option to use Named Ranges on a seperate worksheet ("Validation Lists").
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim str As String Dim cboTemp As OLEObject Dim ws As Worksheet Set ws = ActiveSheet On Error Goto errHandler If Target.Count > 1 Then Goto exitHandler Set cboTemp = ws.OLEObjects("TempCombo") On Error Resume Next If cboTemp.Visible = True Then With cboTemp .Top = 10 .Left = 10 .ListFillRange = "" .LinkedCell = "" .Visible = False .Value = "" End With End If................
I am trying to make it so that when you double-click in a cell in column A, a message box opens populated with the text string in the corresponding cell (same row) in column Z. Seems to me like it should be easy enough, but despite spending the last hour searching for clues, I can't seem to figure it out.
I have made a toggle button to turn diagonal borders on and off in a single cell. Is there a way to make the button transparent, such that the button can be placed over the cell itself and the contents of the cell will be visible underneath, no matter the condition of the toggle?
I've found the code below and tweaked to suit my needs but having trouble. Had it working one time. The code below calls a userform when the user double clicks on a cell. The form pops up and is not active/enabled. I cannot select anything on the form until I select a cell on the sheet, then everything on form becomes active/enabled.
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) 'check cells for desired format to trigger the frmSel_WBS.show routine 'otherwise exit the sub Dim NumberFormat, DF NumberFormat = Array("[Blue]General") For Each DF In NumberFormat If DF = Target.NumberFormat Then frmSel_WBS.Show vbModeless End If Next End Sub
following on from previous post (http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...g-up-form.html) what if the selected cell is a merged cell (cell count is greateer than 1), what is the best solution to enable double click event on merged cell ?
I'm trying to double-click a cell to edit the contents, and I am off a few pixels, it treats the double-click as a double-click on the cell border, not the cell contents, and the focus jumps to another cell in the direction of the border instead of going into edit mode. The effect is as if I had pressed Ctrl and the arrow in the direction of the border I clicked on.
The only way I've found to disable this is to turn off the option "Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop", but unchecking that also disables actually useful things, like dragging the corner of a formula call to copy it down, etc.
Is there a good way to disable this cell jumping when I accidentally double-click a cell border?
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
I have spreadsheet with client names. I'd like to build logic that will open a form with client information when a user double-clicks on the client name. But I have a couple of problems.
- First, I'd like to protect the sheet and hide the formulas. But when I protect the sheet, I get the "the cell or chart you are trying to change is protected" error when I double click the protected cell.
- If I deselect the "Select Locked Cells" options when I protect the sheet, I no longer have the ability to double-click on the cell.
how I can double click on a cell yet not allow the user to edit the cell (or see the formula)?
