My direction keys currently move the screen instead of move from one cell to another. For instance, I will have cell A1 highlighted and then press the down key. Instead of going to A2, it stays at A1 but the screen moves down one cell

Reprogram Enter Key On Worksheet Activate
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.

Using Enter Key To Trigger Click Event
I am working with a large legacy file/program which has a lot of issues. Foremost, and unfortunately this cannot be changed, is that all of the controls were placed directly on the worksheets instead of on Userforms.

I had previously posted code from the legacy file which may have been excessively complicated. So I edited my post to this simple example. Sheet1 has one textbox and one command button. Sheet 2 is blank.

If Sheet2.Activate is commented, everything works fine. If Sheet2.Activate is executed, then Excel crashes....

Enter Key On UserForm To Next Control Not Working
I have a User Form that is used to collect data. CommandButton1 loads the User Form data into the worksheet and CommandButton2 clears all data from the Form in preparation for entering the next record. Immediately after a user first opens the Form, the very first time CommandButton1 is clicked, the Enter Key stops working. At this point data can be typed into any TextBox on the Form, but when the Enter Key is pressed the cursor remains in the TextBox. (The Enter Key will not move the focus to the next Textbox in the Tab Order. Also, if I alter the code to set the focus on a CommandButton as the active control instead of a TextBox, pressing Enter on the active CommandButton does not execute the CommandButton's macro... the same behavior as a TextBox; nothing at all happens when the Enter Key is pressed even though the CommandButton has focus).

At the point when the Enter Key stops functioning, if the user presses 'Alt-Tab' to leave the Form and then immediately uses 'Alt-Tab' to return back into the Form the Enter Key suddenly works again and continues to work correctly from that point on even after CommandButton1 is clicked. Again, the Enter Key stops working ONLY the first time CommandButton1 is run immediately following initially opening the workbook and Alt-Tabing into the Form immediately corrects it. I saw one other post in this forum with this same problem in 2003, but unfortunately it did not get answered.

Textbox Enter Key To Force Execute Commandbutton
In my userform, I have a textbox where I enter a number.

When I hit the return key in the textbox, I want the userform to act like I hit a commandbutton_Click. (The commandbutton_Click takes the contents of the textbox and locates a line with that number in it in a specific worksheet, and then displays the line of info in other textboxes in the userform).

I have not been able to figure this out.

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?

Go Immediately To A Particular Cell After Inputting Data In Another Cell And Hitting Enter Options
I'm inputting data in E3 and after I hit enter I want B2 to be
selected. But only for E3 and only in one worksheet. And possibly a
further step... Sometimes the formula in B2 has picked up data from
another place depending on what value was entered in E3. If it's done
this then I won't need to go to B2, I'd want to go to A8 after E3
instead of B2.

There are two projects.

Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.

My Specification follows...

All working fine apart from repeated 'hits' of the command buttons to activate the data movement

Have Excel2003 on XP Pro and have been trying to use the application.onkey sub to try and introduce the 'enter' key to try and make things easier
but......not winning (aaaagh)
code being used just now is

Sub commandbutton1_click()
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell.Value = TextBox6.Value

As you see from 'textbox6' - I have a few of these for different beverage types and costs
Would be grateful for any help in introducing an 'ENTER' keystroke into the code make it that bit more 'easier'

But my problem is that when there is no value in D16, it reads #DIV/0!, because D16 itself is the result of another calculation (D3/D14). Is there any way that I can tell Excel not to worry if it finds #DIV/0!, just go ahead and enter the value from D20 instead?

Replacing/Moving Within A Cell
XL=2003 SP3

I need to move data within a cell. Is there a formula that can accomplish this? Here is an example of what I'm trying to do..

Column A
/ TN14YP244f
/ TN15YP245j
/ TN16YP246h

What it would need to do is take the last character in each cell and move it to replace the P in that cell. It should also capitalize the letter. ie: / TN14YP244f would become / TN14YF244

The letters at the end of the cell are always different, however the letter they replace is always the same (P).

Moving Data To A New Cell.
I have cut and pasted a large amount of data onto a spreadsheet. The problem is that I have two rows of data that is associated with one another, so lets say A1 has a name and A2 contains that person's age. This process repeats in the same way in A3 and A4 and so on.

I need to move the data from A2 to B1 without using a simple function like =A2 in B1. The reason is that I will need to sort just the Names in column A once I get the the data moved. I am not sure how to do this.

Moving Data To Another Cell
I have 3 columns Z, AA, AB. The heading for Z1 is A, AA1 is B and AB1 is C
In column Z2:Z2000, there is a mix of A, Bs and Cs. I want A to stay in Z1 column, Bs to goto AA1 and Cs to goto AB1, also I want this added to a macro that I previously created, so everything happens with one push of a button

Now for save, not sure if this is possible or not, if I can have this added to the macro as well that would be great. When I push my macro button, the file saves to Dec (todays date) DB (81).xls The number 81 is the total count of A, Bs Cs, this # will change depending on how may A, Bs and Cs there are. I really hope there is a way of doing all this

Restricting Moving Onto Another Cell Until One Is Filled In
I'm an intermediate Excel user that can navigate around pretty well, but now my boss wants me manipulate Excel in such a way that I cannot figure out how to do.

He wants the worksheet to be "locked" so that I cannot select another or "the next" cell unless the active cell I'm in has something entered into it. The purpose of this is so that when a manager is buying off (proofing and approving) my work, he can't put his initials in a cell next to the purchased item unless the cell that decribes the purchaed item is filled in. I'm not exactly sure what terminology to use when describing this, so forgive me if I'm being vague.

Can I restrict a user from "moving on" to another cell unless the active cell is filled in? And if so, how do I do this?

Moving Defined Cell Data Down One Row
This is the last task in a project I inherited. I have included a sample sheet with 50 rows of data which represents a real sheet with 185,000 rows. This sheet has seven columns, but only two of which apply to this task, columns A and B. Column A is a list of parcel numbers which can, and in many times does, repeat multiple times. Column B is a list of the 'sellers' name for the respective parcel number. This sheet has been sorted by parcel number, then date.

As the current 'seller' was the previous 'buyer', I need to move the 'sellers' name down one row, if the parcel number (Column A) is repeated. If the parcel number is not repeated, the name (Column B) will need to be deleted. This will leave the 'top' line for each unique parcel number blank, which I can work with. As far as the bottom name for each unique parcel number, it will need to also be deleted as there is no where for it to be transferred to. Only the name will be deleted from the 'bottom' row, not the rest of the data. The end result should not change the amount of rows of data.
