I have this logic that clears cells in all WS in WB.
The logic is using each sheet name to reference the logic to clear the contents.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
.ScreenUpdating = False
.EnableEvents = False
Response = MsgBox("This Action Will Prep For A New Week. Do you want to Continue?", vbYesNo)
If Response = vbNo Then
I have an excel workbook with a dynamic dependent drop down list setup, works a treat on the first worksheet i set it up on.
However here's the problem, my workbook contains a good handful of worksheets each named to reflect the certificate on the page, i need the drop down list to work on each tab. problem is when i setup the index/match function it requires a specific sheet name to make it work i.e.
I have a userform with 10 rows of data with 8 colums in each row... I am trying to figure out how to dynamically address the object names (ie Textboxes).
Short and simply let's say I have 10 Text boxes named textbox1, textbox2, textbox3, etc
I want to address them in a loop as follows
Private Sub Clear_Fields() Dim field As Object For x = 1 To 10 field = "textbox" & LTrim(Str(x)) field.Value = "1" Next x End Sub Obviously I'm missing something here as I get the error Object Variable or With Block Variable not set
I need the 'Week 26' and the 'John Smith' to be changeable and preferabilly linked to a cell using the INDIRECT formula so I can change all references to Week 26, 27, 28 etc and also change the workbook name it is referencing.
I have attempted to do this in the following way
I broke down the pathname to seperate cells
Cell 1: 'C:Spreadsheets Cell 2: A reference linking to a cell containing value: Week 26 Cell 3: A reference linking to a cell containing value: [John Smith.xls] Cell 4: Sheet1'!$A$1
I then used the CONCATENATE formula to link these into a single cell as a text string.
I then tried to use INDIRECT to link to the filemane in the CONCATENATE cell.
This did not work.
I need a way to make parts of the filename variable and linked to one cell.
I also need to do this while the other workbooks are closed.
I have found some information on INDIRECT.EXT which as far as I can make out involves installing mods to Excel to make these work, I cannot do this as the spreadsheet will be used across our network and will eventually be used by thousands of users.
I am fairly new to macros and have trouble with VBA. I have a file with multiple worksheets. Each worksheet contains the name of a specific location in cell A8. I want this name in cell A8 to be the name on the worksheet tab for each worksheet in my file but do not know how to accomplish this. Is that even possible?
I have a column of data that is blank-delimited into five blocks. The size of each block will vary, since the data comes from a web query. A blank (empty) cell tells me where a block ends and the next one begins.
I would like to set up five dynamic names (e.g. Block_1, Block_2 and so on), each of which will reference the corresponding segment of data.
What would be an elegant way of defining the dynamic names?
I use a web query to import into an excel workbook. As data is changed on the web that the query runs against, I would like the name of the sheet that is being imported into to change to one of the cells that is being imported.
What I want to do is have a ComboBox (I think it should be a ComboBox, I want the user to be able to select multiple options at once) and display the names of the worksheets in the ComboBox. I could not find a way to do this directly with rowsource and thought about writing a loop to check the current worksheets with their names and put the values into cells, to this way have the names displayed in the ComboBox via rowsource?
I currently have a workbook that copies the first sheet and emails it to an individual on the first day of the week.
New requirements are for it to be sent to a list of people.
I am at an impasse on how to proceed due to lack of knowledge. The current code obtains the recipient from Sheet3 D4 and i would like to be able to list down this column for additional emails without restricting this to a set number of cells.
I have searched the forum and have been unable to find what i am after.
I have included a test file to show what i have so far. We use Outlook 2k3 We use Excel 2k3
Basically I want to be able to get the names of all sheets in a workbook. I know how to get Excel to print the name of the sheet in a cell once the file is saved, and I know how to hide sheets to make sure that all sheets are referenced in a range. If the name of the worksheet is in the same cell across all sheets (except the ones I don't want included on the totals page), is there a way to call that range and have Excel print off all the worksheet names in different rows or columns via a fill function?
Difficulties: the user may add/delete, rename, and have any number of, worksheets in the workbook. Because these variables are unpredictable, I am having difficulty figuring out the way to do this. Also, the formula should be able to ignore the sheets which have no value in the expected cell.
How to assign a "WS(i)" worksheet name and have the assigned variable (i) in the name equal the consecutive steps in a total page count.
Here's the code that does not work:
Code: Dim WB as Workbook Dim WS as Worksheet
Set WB = ThisWorkbook For i = 1 To WB.Sheets.Count Set WS(i) = WB.Sheets(i) Next
I can see why it does not work. I can't figure out what to declare in my Dim or how to word the statement using the (i) variable in order to capture the value to attach to "WS."
Details: The issue is that the number of pages created will vary day to day depending on staff needs. There's an array of staff names to be assigned to page tabs and there will be skips and deletions along the way depending on daily attendance so "WS(i)" worksheet names can't be assigned at creation. What happens if they are is that the succession of worksheet names winds up being (e.g.) "WS1, WS2, WS5, WS12," etc. instead of consecutive.
There's a very complex data-sort-and-assign system that depends upon how many staff-assigned sheets there are, and as such each sheet has to have a "WS" worksheet name for the process to stay smooth. If the names are not consecutive, though, the sort-and-assign process becomes confused. This step takes place at the end of the initial workbook set up process, immediately before the data are addressed, so there really isn't an earlier opportunity. It can't be later since from this point on the system depends upon the "WS(i)" names being there.
It started fine when there were 5 people. Now there are 37.
I was trying to re-create an example from Chapter 4 the 2nd Edition of Professional Excel Development in which there is a data validation list, that is conditionally populated according to the selection of another data validation list.
When you choose b/t Fruits or Vegetables (Source:=Categories) in column D, the list under Item (column E) will read as a group of Fruits or Vegetables (Source:=If(IsBlank(D4),"",Indirect(D4)).
When I look at the Define Name dialog box, there is a column indicating the sheet name, which I cannot re-create/build myself. My first question is how do I do this, and secondly, the 2nd formula above will not work when I plug it into the data validation, but it may be on account of these worksheet level names. If you guys can see another reason why, I'm all ears (or eyes as it were).
UPDATE: Of course, I just tried it again this morning and it worked, but i would still lke to know how to use Worksheet/book level names.
Is it possible to make a macro that creates a Pop-up box that asks for date ranges and generates copies of the first worksheet in the workbook labelled as dates? There are ALWAYS 6 half terms to a school year so a 6x2 pop up box / table that is formatted in the following way will allow the appropriate date ranges to be inputted (saturdays and sundays must be excluded from this range):
Title of input box: Input School Half Term Date Ranges
******** Start Date ** End Date ** Autumn 1 03.09.06 18.09.06 Autumn 2 Spring 1 Spring 2 Summer 1 Summer 2
The macro would then create a series of sheets from 03.09.06 to 18.10.06 as well as the other 5 date ranges (excluding weekends) using the first sheet as a template. Would the user have to also input the start day for each half term or would excel 'know that 04.09.06.06 is a Monday and 18.10.06 is a Wednesday?
If the macro could create worksheets for these date ranges and clone the first worksheet in the workbook then that would save me LOADS of time copying and pasting each year.
I have a form created, were the user can select up to three pairs of open worksheets for sheet subtraction, to see where Im going with, aka the big idea see here: Column Subtraction With Criteria Via Box & Produce Results In New Workbook
What I dont know how to do, is get the form in the attached workbook to show all the available worksheets. Specifically, from the dropdown combo box, I would like it to list all open worksheet title in all open workbooks.
I want to "calculate" a worksheet name by concatenating 2 cells. Then based on this concatenated word perform a " lookup". Basically I have a form for people to fill in and want to extract their answers automatically.
I am trying to implement this formula in my file: = SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&$H$1:$H$20&"'!A1:A100"),"criteria1",INDIRECT("'"&$H$1:$H$20&"'!B1:B100"))). I have over 35 sheets in this file with different names. Is there a way to export all the sheet names in list format so that I don't have to go back and forth in the file and type the names?
i currently have a workbbok that i have a very simple worksheet event macro that will filter a seperate sheets contents to the corresponding entry number. is there any way to make a dynamic event macro that will filter my second sheet depending on what cell is selceted on the first.
for example record 1 on sheet 1. if cell L1 is selected it will filter sheet 2 to to record 1, record 2 on sheet 1, if cell L2 is selected it will filter sheet 2 record 2 and so on. this list of records will continue to grow and i cant think of any way other than what i currently have, which is to make each filter macro for every cell.
is ther a better way example of CODE HERE
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) If Target.Address = "$L$5" Then Call Filter1
I'm trying to make two identical worksheets in a workbook. I would like the second sheet reflect all the changes made in the first one. I thought I would simply use = but it doesn't work correctly if I add or delete rows. If I add a row between row 1 and 2 in the first sheet the formula in row 2 in the second worksheet changes from =sheet1!A2 to =sheet1!A3. The result is the same if I use absolute references which suprised me. I want the formula in row 2 to stay =sheet1!A2 whatever happens on the first sheet.
I don't care about formatting, just data are important.
The reason I want the same data on two worksheets is that the second sheet will contain some more data that should not be visible to everyone. I want to protect the second worksheet and require a password to unhide it.
