Excel 2007 :: Automatically Change The Worksheet Tab Names With Cell Value In Each Worksheet?
Feb 14, 2012
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 created one worksheet called: Assumptions. In this worksheet I have 6 different columns representing 6 different cases.
I have completed the first case in a different worksheet called: WL. I would like to copy this case/worksheet WL and be able to change all the reference cells used in case#1: WL to case#2: FA. So all the cells used in my Assumptions worksheet were in the B columns for case 1: WL, for case 2: FA they will all be in the C column, same row, different column.
Any quick way to do the changes?
My case #1 worksheet as over 10 000 formulas, I really don't want to change each and every formula.
I was thinking there was a way to highlight ALL the reference cells used in my Assumption worksheet, so I would have had to drag from B to C cells, only 50 cells. But I can't find it.
I wish to monitor a change in a certain columns at some worksheets. I have - after having consulted John Walkenbach' fantastic book Excel 2007 Power programming with VBA - understood how I do to monitor a change in specific worksheet, by using the Intersect-function in the change-event on that particular worksheet. That works fine.
My situation is that I have an application that I start out with a certain number of workheets in a workbook, and in the course of the work that the application does, it now and then adds worksheets, and these worksheets I would like to monitor for change in a special column. I know, by looking at the names of the worksheets which ones of those in the collection that I want to check.
I therefore used, not the Worksheet_Change event but the Workbook_SheetChange. It doesn't work quite well. I guess my question for now would be:
The call to this event looks like this:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
1) How - in what way - should I use the first argument, the "Sh as Object"? Can I/Should I give it a name?
The error message I get when I use an instruction like this:
If Not Intersect(Target, Range(M:M)) Is Nothing Then 'Do Stuff end if
The method 'Intersect' in the object '_Global' failed
I recently upgraded from Excel 2003 to 2007, and the worksheet change procedure that i have embedded in my worksheet no longer fires when the criteria are met. If and if I fix it to work in 2007, will it still work in 2003?
Here is my procedure:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngCell As Excel.Range If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) Is Nothing Then For Each rngCell In Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) If rngCell.Value = "BLACK" Then MsgBox "Please select a shading style", , "Shading Style Required" End If Next rngCell End If End Sub
I am trying to use the worksheet calculate event to automatically change the color of a cell only when that particular cell changes. In E2 of the worksheet is a formula use to determine rating based on the result of 2 other cells. The rating is classified as follows
Low Moderate High Maximum
I would like to generate a different set of color to the cell and fonts for each of the rating. For example,
"Cyan" to the cell E1 and E2 with Black font if the result is "Low" "Plum" to the cell E1 and E2 with "Black font if the result is "Moderate" "Blue" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "High" and "Red" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "Maximum"
I would like to take the data from worksheet1 and put into worksheet2 but limit the length of a list (the real spread sheet has over 100 rows and i would like them in 4 sets of 25 versus the example I provided). Is there an array or macro that would make this work (keeping the formatting)..
i want to paste a worksheet with amended cell sizes and also some clipart pasted...to another workbook in same style(excel 2007). when i do that, it says 'data on clipboard may not be of same size.......' and paste in different size.
I have a Workbook (Test 1) with several columns A-S. I'd like to be able to continue to add data into Test 1, and have some of the data pulled into a new Workbook (Test 2). Basically pulling data from Test 1, cols. D, L, J, E, I, C, K, Q and S - into the new workbook Test 2.
Some of the columns in Test 1 have conditional formatting and data validations, but I need the data in these columns to be replicated into Test 2 - without having to copy/paste between the 2 workbooks.
I figured how to do this in Excel 2010, but my office is still using 2007 and I can't seem to get it to work....
Assume I filled some cells of a worksheet (in Excel 2007).
Now I place the cursor in one of the cells and dragged the cursor to the right side. As a result more and more empty columns are automatically added at the right side even I do not enter something. Similarly rows are added at the bottom when cursor is dragged downwards.
Correspondingly the horizontal (and vertical) slider shrinks because the dimensions of the matrix grows.
Is there a menu/function which let me do the opposite?
Something like a trim/shrink function which cuts/deletes all empty columns beginning from the right side resp. rows from the bottom?
I am using excel 2007 and when I change cells my formulas do not automatically refresh. I have set it to automatic and the calculations will not refresh. How I can force a calculation. I did the control alt f9 and nothing seems to work. Any macro that can force all calculations.
Is there a way to make the attached worksheet automatically shade out all the Saturdays & Sundays in any given month everytime you change the Month/Year cell at the top of the worksheet, as example? I've tried using the weekday/Weekend formula, but can't quite get it right.
I am building this waterfall chart. I'd like to put conditional color formatting to change the vertical bar automatically e.g. if it is positive, the bar color is green and if it is negative the bar color is red.
I use Excel 2003 & I am trying to design a worksheet to keep track of signs I make & their order numbers. I want the names listed alphabetically. When I add a new name & I arrange the column alphabetically, the columns with the order numbers do not relocate along with the names column.
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.
I know how to protect a worksheet with a password so that no one can amend the contents or view the formulas in the cells. And then we can un-protect the worksheet by clicking on the "review" tab in excel 2007 and so on. But recently I came across an excel sheet which was password protected and my query is that the "Review" tab was greyed out. What kind of protection was this that clicking on "review" tab option is also unavailable. And how does these kind of sheets get unlocked then.
I am working on a sheet that will copy a specified number of sheets, rename them, set a cell within the equal to a cell from another sheet and (the problem) set cells on my input sheet equal to cells in the newly copied and renamed sheets.
I want the cells in sheet "Data Input" to look something like "='newsheet'E26"
I can make it return the actual number in the cell and return the formula in the cell, but not make the cell in "Data Input" reference the cell in the new book.
Here is what I have:
Code: Sub CopySheetsTest() Dim i As Integer Dim wks As Worksheet
Excel 2007. Is there a way to extract information from cells and rows that constantly move? These rows need to be able to cut & paste, copy & Paste, insert and delete. I have the formula I need to display the data, but with the cutting and pasting etc, my formulas get all messed up.
I have the excel sheet on Google docs. It displays some cells wrong because it does not recognize certain formulas.
On the second worksheet, I want the information from columns A, H, M, N, and O to be extracted at a certain time each evening and sent to a worksheet, without sending duplicates. These rows will constantly move which is why my current setup, which is just to display the information, will not work... We decided to try to extract it into a different worksheet or workbook if possible.
I am using Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. I have several workbooks. Each one contains 33 worksheets. 31 of the worksheets are for each day of the month, the other two are for yearly totals and revision history. Recently, a menu bar has appeared at the bottom of my worksheet. At the left is an icon that states that no macros are being recorded, click here to start recording. The center of the bar is blank, but placing the mouse over the bar brings up a customization menu.
At the right side of the bar are three icons dealing with page layout. As I scroll down the worksheet entering data for the day, the cursor goes below the bar and the screen does not move up as it used to do. Also, by using the arrows keys to scroll down, I do not see the bar containing the worksheet names. Luckily, I have a macro that allows me to save the current days worksheet and move to the next one, otherwise I would not be able to do that. When I open a previous month, the bar is there also, so it must be a flag that I can't find or don't know about. Is there a way to get things back to normal?
I am starting within a workbook with a standard invoice/form. During the course of a month this invoice will be copied 20 to 30 times within the workbook and the amounts changed each time. Is there a way that I can:
a) Have amounts from 2 of the cells (say E30 and E31) within each new invoice worksheet automatically included on a summary page? These cells are calculated by formula.
b) (This one would be nice but is not essential) Have each new invoice worksheet that is added (by copying) automatically numbered sequentially in a cell (say A2) and also re-named with this number. The first existing invoice would be manually numbered and each additional invoice would follow from there.
I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)
I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.
I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.
I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.
I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.
Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?
