Excel 2007 :: Trying To Add Textbox With VBA But Getting Smiley Face Instead
Jul 8, 2012
Excel 2007, Vista. When I step through the code and hover over "Type:= msoTextBox" the tip pointer indicates a value of 17 which is consistent with the mso shape type enum for a TextBox, but Excel produces a smiley face instead.
Dim sh As Shape
'next line returns a smiley face
Set sh = ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddShape(Type:=msoTextBox, Left:=100, Top:=100, Width:=100, Height:=100)
MsgBox sh.Name 'Returns "Smiley Face #"
I'm using Excel 2007 and I am taking the contents of various user entered cells and creating drawing textboxes to display this data using VBA. How would I get VBA to resize the width of the textbox so that the text is displayed correctly in the textbox i.e. there will be variable lengths of text in the cells so I currenly can read the full contents?
I have a UserForm that Dead Head Miles will be entered into one text box. The Trip Miles will be entered into the second text box I would like for the user form to show the answer after the first entries are made something like this:
1)Dead Head Miles 20 + 2) Trip Miles 500 ----times---$2.00 3)Projected Rate $1040 --show this after the DH and Trip is entered and Multiplied by $2.00
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I have a userform with a textbox and would like the user to type inside the textbox which in turn send the text typed to a cell on my spread sheet say sheet 1 cell ref A1. I am writing the following into the control source Sheet1!A1 but the control source does not except this. I am using excel 2007 .
I have written some code that customises my Right-Click Menu. This works perfectly well but doesn't create the FaceIDs.Can anyone explain why? The Code is as follows
Sub CustomiseRightClickMenu() Dim cbnRightClickMenu As CommandBarButton Dim rngMacroNames As Range Dim intLoopCounter As Integer 'DEFINE THE RANGE CONTAINING ALL THE MACRO NAMES Set rngMacroNames = Sheet1.Range("MacroNames") 'DEFINE ARRAY OF FaceIDs arrFaceIDs = Array(255, 590, 350, 536, 576, 410, 401) On Error Resume Next With Application For Each Cell In rngMacroNames . CommandBars("Cell").Controls(Cell.Formula).Delete ..............
Is there a way without using code to have the text in a text box (excel 2003), copied to another cell or another text box on a different worksheet?
I have information in a text box on 1 worksheet. I would like this information to automatically be copied to another worksheet. On the master sheet, if any of the information gets changed or updated, the copied information should get updated as well.
I am attempting to format some TextBoxes from within a For/Next loop. I need a way to check which TextBox is the active TextBox in the loop. Using i as the variable, I came up with this code snippet: Me.Controls("TB" & i).Text = Format("TB" & i, "mm/dd/yy")
If i = 3, this gives me in TextBox3 (which is called TB3) the text 'TB3' and not the value of what is in TB3. It has got to bo something simple, I just can't see it!!!
I have an excel spreadsheet on a network, and I need to be able to email a link to the spreadsheet to everyone who needs to use it.
I have done the formula =cell("filename") to get the filepath, i have created a userform which initialises textbox1 to pick up the filename. I have written a macros to create an email, it puts in the subject and the body of the message. In the body of the message is the value of textbox1, but i cannot get it to format this filepath as a hyperlink.
Here's the code in it's entirity i have done:
[VBA] Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() ESubject = "A Workbook has been created which requires your input." SendTo = ""
I have a worksheet that I will enter in an age and gender ($B$5 and $B$6 respectively). Based upon these two criteria, I would like to display text in column H(Lower Limit) and I(Upper Limit), showing the norms for their health metrics, a few are below:
Metrics Measured Lower Limit Upper Limit
Total Cholesterol 200 120 200
HDL 40 35 80
Glucose 90 90 130
So, as the user enters in the age in B5 and the Gender in B6 the VBA or formula would populate the cells with the appropriate data. I can get it to work with 1 condition using vlookup. Was thinking VBA might be useful there with the two criteria, just not sure how to code it.
I am using Excel 2010. I am creating a flowchart which will require formulas. Unfortunately the flowchart connectors work best with text boxes rather than the cells. To make this method work, data will be entered into the text-boxes and will be calculated into other text boxes. Basically I need the data I enter into a text box to automatically fill itself into a cell in the background. I know there may be other ways to do this whilst not using text boxes at all, but I will not be using them.
I can fill a text-box from a cell by using F2 on the textbox and then typing =A1 etc, but I am having a hard time going the other way - getting a cell to fill from the value in the text box.
I have Useform1 & Textbox1 & Textbox2 & CommandButton1
*Textbox1 = Identifier where to put the "X" mark when data is found *TextBox2 = The User Data 'It is a multiline textbox *CommandButton1 = Execute the macro *Excel Column "B3" = Where the textbox2 data will be compared. this one has default data. *Excel Row 2 = the identifier where to put the "X" mark when the data is found.
The user will enter data in textbox2, For each TextBox2 Value it will be compared in the Data in Column B3 only If the Textbox1 Value found in Row2 which has the codes. Then when the Value is found. it will mark with "X" in the column where the TextBox1 value found. see my screenshot.
I have a worksheet "database" which is database of patient information in each row, in column H I have the "pateint IP number" I have a userform for search and copy. The textbox in the userform is "search_tb1", where I would input the required IP number and search in column H for a match, which should intern select the entire row of this selected cell and paste in another worksheet "preview" in row 2.
I've created a powerpoint with a number of slides, and I need to put a textbox at the bottom. I want to change the colour of the textbox border colour.
Code: For intCount = 1 To 5 Set tmpTxtBox = pptApp.ActivePresentation.Slides(intCount).Shapes.AddTextbox(Orientation:=msoTextOrientationHorizontal, Left:=120, Top:=500, Width:=500, Height:=100).TextFrame.TextRange tmpTxtBox.Text = strTolerance tmpTxtBox.Font.Name = "Arial" tmpTxtBox.Font.Size = 12 tmpTxtBox.Font.Size = 12 tmpTxtBox.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ppAlignCenter ' ??? tmpTxtBox.Line.ForeColor = RGB(255, 0, 0) Next intCount
I've tried everything I can think of for that line with the ??? in, .line.color, .color, .bordercolor but Excel VBA doesn't like any of them , I get error 438 'object doesn't support this property or method'.
As part of a program I'm writing in VBA (for Excel 2010), I have a textbox in a user form used as an interface to write a formula in cells in Excel.The resulting value of a formula from a cell is loaded up into the textbox. It would be shown in the textbox like "See 1.2 and 1.3" where the formula in the cell is
This is just used as an example but the principle is there. It is worth noting that I’m writing this for very inexperienced Excel users but I need them to be able to edit the string part of the formula without breaking the formula.
However where I’m struggling is to pick up a selection change event inside a text box already selected. I need to be able to check if the textbox.SelStart is within an address value or within the string in the textbox.
The event Enter won’t work if the user is already editing the textbox (i.e. typing stuff) and then clicking or using the keyboard arrow to move the cursor somewhere else inside the textbox. I don’t think the event Change is the solution either as it would mean that the user would have already typed something and as a result the formula may already be broken.
I have had a good look around and I didn’t find an event for a selection change inside a textbox. Does it exists and/or is there a way that would have the same result?
When I put in =datevalue("08/22/2008") I get the error #Value! If I put in datevalue("2008/08/22") 39682 which is what I was expecting. If I use =datevalue("08/08/22") I also get the right answer, anything else I get #VALUE!
I didn't think that Datevalue mattered with how the date was in?
Do I have a setting wrong of something that could be causing the error?
I am failing on the logic and syntax to achieve the following. Basically it has to take the sum of 1, or 2 fields and validate it against the value of a 3rd field. I can get it to work for 1 field if DefPercent = 100 but not when looking at the total of 2 fields if DefPercent < 100.
- DefPercent (if = 100 LiabilityAmt2.Enable = False) (this works fine already) - TotalLiability - LiabilityAmt1 - LiabilityAmt2
Output Required: logic only
If DefPercent = 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 Then MsgBox "error....." Exit Sub Else continue
If DefPercent < 100 And TotalLiability LiabilityAmt1 + LiabilityAmt2 Then MsgBox "error...." Exit Sub Else continue
