I have a macro that is set to clear a range of cells. If I make a change to the worksheet (such as adding a column) that moves those cells in the worksheet, the worksheet formulas update, but the macro cell references do not. How can I make my macro update in accordance with changes in the worksheet?
I am new to Excel programming, haven't done any before and not familiar with creating/editing macros. Using Excel 2007.
I would like to automatically lock all the cells in a row if the date in column A in that row is >= 7 days old. Data is entered once a week (some time Sunday - Saturday) and I would like historical data (rows) to be locked so that they can't be edited inadvertently.
If possible could I also highlight the current working week somehow?
I have attached the worksheet : testworksheet.xlsx
I would like make a cell in a report auto update with the most recent data entered in another cell from an input table either in the form of a formula or code to ensure that the most recent data is recorded and reported.
Whenever she clicks on a cell, the cell to the right of it is also selected. When she tries using tab to move to a new cell, she can only move between the two selected cells. Same with using the enter key. As such, it is extremely difficult for her to modify only one cell, since she always has two selected.
The F8 key, as well as Ctrl+F8. However, pressing the F8 key only adds more cells to the autoselection, and Ctrl+F8 allows her to select one cell, but also highlights the cells around it, and when we tried to select other cells, every cell we clicked stayed highlighted.
Additionally, sometimes when she clicks a cell, it will just select that one cell. Click it again, and the problem is back. I haven't been able to determine any patterns to this behavior, and I know there is no problem with the input (the keyboard and mouse are standard-issue in our lab, and we keep them well maintained).
I am trying to write a Macro that will insert a Text Box that auto-fits the shape of a cell to hide its content. Once finished, the Macro will need to lock the cell and the text box so the contents of the cell are hidden. The idea is that I want to share a spreadsheet with someone but want to hide individual cells for various reason.
I have excel graphs linked to a power point presentation that runs in a loop and I would like have to the links update everytime slide 1 pops up or when the loop restarts, either one works for me. When I close the looping presentation and reopen it I get a message asking me if I want to update the charts, but I would really prefer the looping presentation to update itself. I know this is going to be a VBA setup, but I cant seem to figure it out. I pasted the links by: pasting special, paste link as microsoft office excel worksheet object.
Im trying to use excel as part of an real time display system, what im looking to do is after xx time period import some data (which is fine, I have that bit sorted), then save to as html- (hopefully using excel 07 abilty to repubish data to update the same file with more info).
so far I have found the following code, but could do with a hand to tie it all up!
Code: Public Sub Watchon() State = "Mointoring Folder..." Timerun = Now() + TimeValue("00:10:00") Application.OnTime Timerun, "DetectNewFiles" Userform1.Nextupdate.Caption = ">Next Update will be @: (" & Timerun & ")" With ActiveWorkbook.PublishObjects.Add(xlSourceSheet, _
Code: Sub DetectNewFiles 'Some code to import text files to excel With ActiveWorkbook.PublishObjects("Book1_24990") .Publish (False) .AutoRepublish = True End With
Some code to reset next time update of DetectNewFiles
I have a piece of code that was written by someone else (namely Phil_V, from these very forums) that only works in versions of Excel before 2007. I was just hoping that someone could update the code for me?
I know it's a lot to ask, but I simply don't have the expertise to do it myself I really appreciate any help received.
I work for a UK charity and have a list of funders in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.
One of the columns refers to the date on which a new application for funding can be made to that particular funder.
In many cases new applications for funding can't be made for 1 or more years since the last application - sometimes as many as 5 years later. How to get a cell to refer to the date that it contains.
For example, say I have in cell A1 "The Acme Funding Organisation" and in cell B1 (i.e. the "Reapply when?" column) a date of 01/04/2013 (British date format, i.e. 1 April 2013) then what I want Excel to do is to look at the date in cell B1 and if that date has been reached to highlight the cell red. That way I'll know that the reapply date has been reached & that a new application can be made.
I need to insert a date modified column to an Excel 2007 workbook I am currently using. The columns range is from A to L, with about a hundred data points. However, I would like to have the date modified cell update only when there are changes to rows F through L, starting with row 3.
I need the code to still function if I add rows, and it would be great if it would also still run if I added columns, but that part is not necessary. I've gotten close by defining a cell name as myCol and using this code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Row < 3 Then Exit Sub
I have a client with approximately 4-5000 Excel workbook files that all contain the old Jet connection string and these files do not run under Office 2010 without changing to the newer ACE connection string. It is just too much to open each file and change the connection string.
Is there a way to do a mass change - like global search and replace - the connection strings in the files? I have a text editor that is able to do that but I fear it may mess up the file.
I am using Excel 2007 and my version of visual basic is 6.5.
I am baffled by the behavior of this code to manipulate one of my pivot tables. I am trying to set all but one of the pivot items in one of the pivot fields to not visible. Because there is a large number of items, I wish to suspend all automatic updates until all items are properly set to visible or non visible.
------------------------------------------------------ Sub SwitchBoards() Dim BoardNew As String Sheets("Board Parameters").Select ' Make sure we get the right value.
The MsgBox returns with: "Manual update is set to False" right after the instruction to set it to True!!
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
how to make my network days stop counting when I insert a value in the completed column (in this case H3). I have a Date Received column (A3), a due day column (G3) and the last column with the date (N3). My remaining days column keeps counting after I filled the completed cell (H3) and won't stop counting after. I need a formula to stop after the completed cell is fill up.
i want to update values fon an excel sheet on a month by month basis. So i have jan to dec folders and excel sheets under each folder , i want to update my monthly forecast sheet based on the numbers in the folder I want to just change the cell in my monthly forecast sheet to Jan or Feb and the values should be pulled from the closed excel files in the monthly folders.

I am using office 2007 and here is the problem I am facing. I am using a formula and it is based on two columns data. The formula result is at C20:C2400, while the two data columns are at A20:A2400 and B20:B2400. I add one more row of data at A2401 and B2401, I expect the formula result would auto extend to C2401 but it doesn't, nothing happen.
I check that I need to turn on the auto extend check box in option, I check and it is already on.
I have searched and found many examples of code that will lock cells once data has been entered. But for some reason, I cannot get it to work in my workbook. The weird thing is, I have successfully got them to work on blank workbooks. I unlock a range I want people to be able to edit, I protect the workbook, I enter the code, and it works. But I do the same thing on my workbook, nothing locks.
I've tried locking all the cells on a sheet, and only unlocking a small range, as in the examples (A1:A10), and I cant get it to work. I've tried not pre-protecting the sheet, I've tried 4 or 5 different examples of code. If it wasn't for the fact I've gotten it to work on blank workbooks, I'd think VBA was disabled or something. I can't post a copy of my workbook for you all to look at because its on a stand-alone computer at work (and the USB is disabled for info-sec).
I'm trying to get some vba to automatically find the range of data in a spreadsheet (So start from a specified point and loop until it's blank) and populate a combobox with this range accordingly. I have read numerous articles and posts but nothing seems to work!!
I have a delivery time programm (clients to be delivered the next day) which I would like to run every night at a specific time. Is there any MS tool to trigger the Excel file? Or do we have to use the "old" batch file ( if yes, pls send example)?
Looking to create a calendar in excel and auto-populate the content with specific fields I enter. I know how to create an excel gantt chart but I'm really looking for a calendar view instead of a series of columns with dates. I reviewed the original post on Auto-Populating Excel Calendar but was confused by the instructions. (1) create a calendar in excel and (2) show me how to populate the calendar with fields like (dept and project name) into the dates on the calendar? I have two dates that are important (a due date for the project and when that project will be published). Is there a way to have both dates show info otherwise the most important date will be the publish date?
