ENTER = Activate?

Apr 8, 2007

In the following code, I have a find sub... when the user enters a date and hits the "Enter" key, is there a way to bypass the "Ok" key?

Private Sub cmdFind_Click()
Dim ws As Worksheet, myDate
Dim rFoundDate As Range

'check for valid distribution date (between October 1, 2006 thru December 31, 2014)
myDate = txtFindMyDate
With myDate
If DateValue(txtFindMyDate) < DateValue("10/1/2006") Or DateValue(txtFindMyDate) > DateValue("12/11/2014") Then
MsgBox "Please enter a date between October 2006 and December 2014"
Exit Sub
End If
End With

Cells.Find(What:=txtFindMyDate, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Unload Me
End Sub

Reprogram Enter Key On Worksheet Activate

Aug 31, 2009

Is there code for worksheet activate event that will reprogram the Enter Key to mimic the Tab Key such that if you hit Enter, the cell to the right of the active cell is selected? I've searched the net for several hours today and find nothing that addresses this question.

Also, the Enter Key would have to be normalized on worksheet deactivate.

Activate Hyperlink With Enter Key In Post 2000

With Excel 2000 Hyperlinks to other locations in a Workbook such as an Index to other worksheets can be achieved (executed) with the Enter Key. When using the same file in Excel 2003 the only way to execute the Hyperlink is by clicking with the Mouse.

Is there any way to get Hyperlinks to operate the same (with the Enter Key) in Excel 2003?

Excel 2010 :: How To Select Userform Button And Activate With Pressing Enter Key

Jul 2, 2012

I have developed a Userform button in Excel 2010 using the developer icons, which when clicked on with my mouse it runs my super dooper macro. It works great!

But one thing I want to have happen is to have the choice of using the Enter key to start the macro or use the left mouse button

For example, I place data in (say) cell A1 and the userform button is in cell A2. When I place the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves down to A2, but doesn't highlight the user button. When I press the Enter key again, the cursor moves to cell A3.

What I want is when I fill in the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves to cell A2 and selects the button, so that when I press the Enter key again, it activates the macro.

Activate Another Workbook

Sep 16, 2009

I have an open workbook(A.xls) where the user can press a button which opens another workbook (B.xls) In workbook B they need to add new names then press another button to run another script. The script needs to switch to workbook A in order to work correctly. How can I switch to workbook A without using the name of the workbook? The reason I cant use the name to activate is because the first workbook that is open is not always A.xls

Macro To Activate URL?

Jan 19, 2012

I have a cell (B2) in which there is a formula referencing the value of another cell with the purpose of generating a URL- ="[URL] such that when a numeric value is entered in B3, B2 is made to contain the full URL including B3 as a unique identifier.

I have a macro which straightforwardly copies B2 and pastes its value in the same cell, rendering the text value of the URL.

How do I go about activating the URL as a hyperlink in the macro? It seems like if I click in the cell and hit return, or right-click/Hyperlink.../OK I'm creating a macro to reference the exact unique identifier present at the time that I'm recording the macro- e.g. if B3 is "123", I'm setting the macro to set B2 as [URL] rather than the actual unique identifier in B3.

Has anyone successfully activated the content of a cell as a hyperlink dynamically based on its exact content?

Select Vs Activate: When To Use Which

Apr 6, 2007

1. What's the difference between:

Worksheets("Sheet1"). Range("A5").Select




2. Can I use a Selection. method with an object 'selected' using .Activate in the preceding code line?

3. Say I am currently on Sheet2, Cell A5. When I click the macro button, I want Excel to copy the value from Sheet1, Cell A5 and paste it into Sheet2, Cell A5. But I do NOT want the screen display to actually jump from Sheet2 to Sheet1, and then back to Sheet2. So do I need to use .Activate, or .Select, to copy the value of Sheet1, Cell A5?

Looking For More Efficient Way To Activate Arrays?

Sep 17, 2012

I have a bunch of array formulas that need to be activated by going on the cell, hitting F2, then hitting Ctrl+Shift+Enter. In the attached sheet I have done a record macro to automate this. I have another sheet with something similar just a lot more items on Sheet1 (~250 items). It will be very time consuming for me to record macro and hit F2, then hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter ~250 times so I am wondering if there is any way to activate all the array formulas on the sheet in one go using 1 formula. I'm not too concerned with file size.Also, not all arrays only include columns A and C, other columns (D, G, H and J) are included too.

Activate Formula Without Clicking In Each Row

Jan 1, 2010


Above is the formula that I have, I am putting it into Column L. When I do auto fill every row that has data in J and K the formula goes into as you would expect.

However the formula does not activate until I double click inside each individual row and hit enter. Therefore if the calculation in L4 was 1.0, then 1.0 will appear as the calculation in every row of Column L until I double click in each row individually and press enter.

Using Pathname In A Variable To Activate

Sep 29, 2013

In one Sub() I assign a pathname to a variable. At the moment I am using this to activate the window of a file that is open....

Windows("OLD LOAD LIST.xls").Activate

But I would rather use this as the file name may sometimes be different...


But it isn't working. Is it because I set the Old_File variable outside this Sub() and the variable is losing its contents ? If so, how do I make the variable keep its contents until its changed ?
