Keydown To Effect To All Controls That Support Event
Is there a way to fix a private sub to catch keydown effect of various combos and textboxes of my userform?

Instead of typing the same thing to each and every control's keydown event just call a sub. Code goes like:

Select Case KeyCode
Case 112
ShellExecute 0, "open", "hh.exe", ThisWorkbook.Path & "1.chm", "", 1
Case 113
If MsgBox("Backup now", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) = vbYes Then BackUp
Case 114
Col = 3
Case 115
Case 116

Instead of that, if i place code in a private sub test() just call test in keydown event

Writing Function For Textbox Keypress Event
I have got some code that is duplacated a few times. It allows only number values to be entered into a textbox.

Is there a way to make a function out of this to cut out the duplication of code.

Tab Key Change Event
I have a user input box (VBA) with two columns of data entry. The leftmost column has text boxes labeled color1, color2, color3, etc.. The rightmost column has text boxes labeled tag1, tag2, tag3, etc..

I have the TAB sequence set to go from color1 to tag1, color2 to tag2, color3to tag3, etc..

A user can inadvertently tab over the color1 (or color2, etc. columns) into the tag1 (or tag 2, etc. columns) column without entering data in the color column.

Is there coding to allow a TAB key entry to be a Change Event such that, if a user TABS out of color1 without entering data, a MsgBox could signal that they must enter data in the color1 field before they can continue?

Alternately, can you suggest a different approach? The goal is to require an entry in the leftmost column (color1) before they can proceed to the tag1 field. Of course, they are given a "Cancel" option.

Beep From KeyPress
I've got a small - almost "cosmetic" problem. I have a listBox on a userForm and I'm checking for a keystroke combination to see if the user wants to edit related data. That's working fine. However, when I return to the userForm, it beeps at me. Impertinent! I think it's because Excel doesn't know what to do with the keyStroke that I used - Alt U. I've attached code. I think that I just have to set the keycode to something that will be ignored by Excel.

Get 2 Textboxes To Display Different Strings Based On Keypress
I have a Userform whose purpose it is to capture payment information, in particular Creditcard information. To this end it has (amongst other elements) 2 textboxes - textboxCardNr1 and TextboxCardnr2.

the User enters the cardnr in Textboxcardnr1 as, e.g. 4321098765432109. Through the code below I transform this into the more readable number
4321-0987-6543-2109. I capture the keypress instance to only allow numbers to be entered in this field and to simultaniously update TextboxCardNr2 with the keystrokes.

On exiting TextboxCardNr1 the content of TextboxCardNr2 is copied to the clipboard to be available for pasting on a secure website in the approriate field.

My problem is, that when the user makes a mistake and changes the number in TextboxCardNr1, those changes are not automatically mirrored in TextboxCardNr2.

I want the easy to read form of the card - with the dashes, to be saved. The website the user is pasting the content of TextboxCardnr2 to does not accept the number with dashes.

Private Sub TextBoxCardNr1_KeyPress(ByVal KeyAscii As MSForms.ReturnInteger)
Dim taste As String
Dim wert As String

taste = VBA.Chr(KeyAscii)
wert = Me.TextBoxCardNr1.Text

KeyAscii = 0
If taste = "0" Or taste = "1" Or taste = "2" Or taste = "3" Or taste = "4" Or taste = "5" Or taste = "6" Or taste = "7" Or taste = "8" Or taste = "9" Then If Not Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text Like "################" Then
Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text = Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text & taste............................

SetFocus On TextBox
I have the below to check for a numeric entry and when it's not, it deletes the entry, shows a Splash Form for a few seconds telling the user to enter Numeric, and then unloads.

The problem is, on the SetFocus part. I thought that it should put the cursor back into TextBox2 for another entry. It doesn't, in fact the cursor is nowhere to be seen. I have to grab the mouse and click in the TB2 to reenter a number.

Private Sub TextBox2_Change()
'//Check for numeric entry
If Not IsNumeric(TextBox2) Then
Me.TextBox2 = ""
'//Show SplashForm if not numeric
End If

End Sub

Setfocus In Userform Not Working
I'm having some problems with SetFocus on a user form that I am using. Code is Below.

Dim Answer As Variant
With cboAccount
If .Value "" And .ListIndex = -1 Then
Answer = MsgBox(cboAccount.Value & " is not a registered account, would you like to add it?", vbYesNo)
If Answer = vbYes Then
Load frmNewAccount
frmNewAccount.txtAccountName.Value = frmEnterTransaction.cboAccount.Value
If Answer = vbNo Then
End If
End If
End If
End With
End Sub

basically the code asks if the if the answer placed in a cboAccount (combo box) is valid against the list designated to that combo box,

If the entry is not valid a message box appears asking if they would like to add the entry to the valid list if they do not want to do this they can click no and in which case I wan't the focus to be set back to the combo box however currently the setfocus command above does not does not work and the focus is set to the next text box.

Control Events And SetFocus
I have been working for 8-1/2 hours to get the focus to move to a specified control on my user form if criteria are met in two other controls on the same user form. It's not responding as I expect. I think I know what is happening; I just don't know why.

Situation: I have a user form with the following relevant fields in this tab order - LMonthDay, tbMonthDay, SBMonthDay, LYear, tbYear, SBYear, LTime, and tbTime. I used the designations L, tb, and SB in my control names to represent label, text box, and spin button respectively.

Problem: Once the SBMonthDay control has the focus, if I press TAB without changing the control's value, it does not execute the Exit event statement the way I anticipated. I want the focus to move to the tbTime control when the tbMonthDay & tbYear controls are already properly populated. (They will already be populated for 99% of the entries in this case.)

Private Sub SBMonthDay_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Debug.Print "SBMonthDay_Exit Begin"
If ISLIKE(tbMonthDay.text, "####") _
And ISLIKE(tbYear.text, "####") Then
Else: tbYear.SetFocus
End If
Debug.Print "SBMonthDay_Exit End"
End Sub ...........................................

Setfocus To Combobox On Multipage
I have a userform with a multipage consisting of 4 tabs.

Each one has several combobox's and 1 commandbutton.

As you move through the form the commandbutton moves the data to my worksheet then moves you to the next page. When it reaches the last page it will return you to the first page then unload the form which is great.

The problem I am having is the cursor is not in any of the boxes on the first page. If I click on one of the other tabs then return to first page the first combobox has the focus. All the tab orders are correct. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Private Sub cmdNext3_Click()
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If

Using SetFocus To Any Other Object On Userform
I have been trying to setfocus to any other object on my userform with absolutely no luck at all?

In the code below I open a dialog box to import a text file (with CommandButton1), if no file is selected the user is prompted, this works fine. However it leaves focus to the textbox and the user would have to click on some other object and re-enter the textbox to open the dialog box again.

TextBox Setfocus Unexpected Call
I've got a user form with 12 textbox, one for each month a total textbox number 13 and a 14th text box (TB28) to enter $'s in.

AfterUpdate in each textbox 1-12 posts its value to a worksheet all values are summed in a =sum range which in turn populates textbox 13. When TB13.text = 100.00 it sucessfully calls a number of routines but what I can't get it to do is set focus on TB28.

Private Sub TextBox13_Change()
If TextBox13.Text = "100.00" Then
With FormPhasedAmt.TextBox28
.SelStart = 0
.SelLength = Len(TextBox28.Text)
End With
End If
End Sub

It returns a Run time error Unexpected call to method or property access highlighting .SetFocus. The rest of the code works OK. Is it because other textbox on the same user form have text highlighted because of the tab order?

SetFocus On TextBox As First Control In A Frame
In Excel 2000 there seems to be a problem with setting the focus in a UserForm TextBox if the SetFocus method is applied in the same submodule as the UserForm.Show method. Microsoft's circumvention for this is to put the SetFocus command in the form's Activate event submodule.

This seems to work OK except when the TextBox you are applying the SetFocus to is the first control inside a frame. It works if the TextBox is not the first control, and it can be circumvented by first setting the focus on a subsequent control then switching the focus to the intended control.

However, the circumvention is not that useful if there is only one TextBox control in a frame or, as in my current project, if you try to create a generic piece of code to validate controls from multiple forms and set the focus from within the generic code.

Does anyone know of a way over overcoming this problem and being able to directly set the focus to the first TextBox inside a frame?

Setfocus From Module To Userform Control
I have a project with many textboxes on different forms. On some of the textbox_exits on some of the forms, I call a standard module that checks what the user has input. If the user needs to change the input, a msgbox appears to inform the user the info needs to be changed.

I have tried to use ControlSource, Name etc., But I cannot seem to setfocus back onto which ever textbox the input needs to be changed. I think it has something to do wih the _exit event, but not sure.

Put Geometric Averages Of Each Column From Each Tab In A Summary Tab
I have multiple sheets each containing multiple columns of numbers, and sometimes when the numbers are not present there is a text error string such as "#N/A N.A.", or "#N/A N Ap". An example of the data is as follows:

#N/A N.A.

I would like to put geometric averages of each column from each tab in a summary tab.

* I tried using =GEOMEAN(...), but it can not handle the quantity of data that I have nor can it take non-numeric fields.

* Also Tried something like this =EXP(AVERAGE(IF(ISNUMBER(C:C),LN(C:C)))) as an array, but unless cells are specified explicitly, ie c10:c300, I get an answer of 1. I can not specify the cells because I have a variable height of each column.

Is there any way to "Inscribe" a cell? I would like to run a macro on Enter keypress, that would execute different code depending on that "inscription" that would be invisible to user. I could use some properties of . Validation property like this:

If ActiveSheet <> mySheet 'MySheet is global Variable then
exit Sub
End If
'now the real code
If ActiveCell.Validation.InputMessage = "1" Then
'something else

End Sub

The problem is, I use Data Validation and Conditional Formatting, so can't use any of these properties.

Worksheet Change Event :: (ByVal Target As Range) Event In Module After Creating A Sheet

The code points to the next blank cell so the user can input a value. Each time the user enters a value I want to re-run the code so that the colour of the cell changes.

However I also want to perform various calculations on the sheet. However this means the sheet is being changed and so continually repeats my code.

How do I add the following, to my previous code?

Sumif (compare Column A On Tab 2 With Column A On Tab 1)
I have a spreadsheet that lists something like this (an easy version of it anyway!)

On tab 1 of my spreadsheet I have a table with lots of data similar to:

Column A Column B
111 12.23
111 14.32
222 48.23
222 28.34
222 10.23
222 33.40
333 23.21

On tab 2 of my spreadsheet I have unique versions of the data Column A on tab 1, for instance:

Column A

I would like to have a formula on tab 2 that can compare column A on tab 2 with column A on tab 1 - if it is similar I want it to total the amounts for all of the values equal.

So for instance, on tab 2 the final data should be this in my example:

Column A Column B
111 26.55
222 120.20
333 23.21

I've seen formulas that are similar.. but the condition is it can only total the rows that match. And preferably can do this from the other sheet.

Tab Naming
My workbook has a summary page and one page for every day of the month. I am making a template file, so I can duplicate it to use every month of the year.

Each week is separated by a worksheet titled "week 1", "week 2" , etc. This is used in the summary page so I can gather totals for a week.

What I want to be able to do is this:

On the first day of the new month, go to week one and type in the date. Then that sheet tab would equal the date, and each daily tab name thereafter would increment the appropriate amount (1day). Then on week 2, it would be equal to the tab value for Friday +3.

The problems I see are:

1. In week 1 the month can start on any on of the 5 worksheets I have set up to cover the week. So any first day coding I need may have to be repeated in the first 5 worksheets

Is this do-able?
2. Tab naming code I have found on this site is not working for dates. 9-15-08 typed into a1 will not translate into the tab, even tho it is a valid name. I am using code VoGII gave which follows: ...

On the tab B corresponding colums are (first cell names are from Tab A) A8 = C5, A7 = B5, H5 = A5 and then create a new line for the next copy action.

Tab Between Worksheet Comboboxes
I'm sure this must have been answered before but I cant find it, sorry.....

I have 12 comboboxes on a worksheet. They are normally filled out by typing the first 3 characters of one of the entries in the list they are populated with.

I.e. the list starts;

AAC - Al Arish - Egypt - HEAR
AAN - Al Ain - United Arab Emirates - OMAN
AAW - Abottabad - Pakistan -

The first 3 character are unique to each line.

I'd like to be able to enter the 3 characters in the first combobox & then tab to the 2nd combobox, etc, etc. No problem in a userform but how on earth do I do that when the comboboxes are on the worksheet?
