Excel 2010 :: Display Message Box When Automatically Updated Value Within Range Changes?
Aug 27, 2013
I use 2010 and I will try and I need to complete a relatively simple project that I am working on.
I have a range of cells, "D7:Q30". This range has numerical values that are updated automatically (every cell within the range has a numerical value) from an "old value" to a "new value". The refresh rate is not constant, that is the values may change at any time depending on when a value changes I think it is called "pushed" data. Once a value is updated ("new value"), it stays at that value until one of the updates changes its value (and then it becomes the "old value").
I would like a message box to display the following EACH TIME A CELL CHANGES ITS VALUE when the NEW updated value is LESS THAN the OLD value:
"B51, B52, **5, has a changed value from "old value" to "new value".
The ** above in the message box represents the following: If for example cell F23 changes, ** in the message box should be the value that is in cell F5. If Q10 changes, the ** value in the message box should be Q5. It will always be the value in Row5 but have a different column depending on where the change is detected.
B51 is the text value in B51..same for B52 (text) etc...these values change depending on what spreadsheet I have open, but will always be in those cell positions. But the values within the range D7:Q30 are always numeric.
I have four cells c1 thru c4. The SUM of these cells must equal 1. I want to display an error message "sum of cells not equal to 1.0" but only when data has been entered in all four cells.
For instance =SUM(C1:C4, "<>1") should display the error message. Is there a way to write the formula with an IF statement and still use data validation with error message box?
Assumptions: -Will ignore blanks -Error message "Sum of cells are not equal to 1.0" until values in all four cells have been entered, not after a value is entered in a cell. (validate expression after all four cells have values or blank)
Scenarios: c1 = .25, c2 is blank, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays c1 = .25, c2 = .25, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 TRUE no error message should displays c1 = .25, c2 = .30, c3 = .25, c4 = .50 FALSE error message should display after value is entered in c4 etc
What I don't want is for the error message box to display after .25 is entered in c1 because the user is still in the process of adding values. Can this be done using Data Validation in Excel 2010?
I want to create a communication excel sheet. I want it in such a way that if any one of the team member make update and save the file, then the whole team should receive an email that the file has been updated.
I have created a spreadsheet that displays new dates in column D based on provided dates in Column B and recurrence intervals selected in column C. The dates in column D are when a training deadline occurs. I have been trying to get a macros written so that when a cell in column d is updated, an outlook appointment message is sent to the person doing the updating. The idea here is that anyone can use this without future coding (so their address would be placed in cell say A1)
So far all i have gotten is excel to send an email to me with the excel spreadsheet as an attachment, not really what I want. Again, I dont want somethign specific to my computer settings, I want to be able to send the spreadsheet out with simple instructions for the user to change their email in cell A1 and then every time a cell changes in column D, it automatically generate an appointment reminder for the new date.
I have a Excel Spread Sheet which has been created, there will be 4 people in 4 different locations who will have access to this spreadsheet and will need to update/amend it through "Dropbox", my question/problem is, how can I link the 4 spreadsheets where information will be updated by one person, but will update all 4 sheets at the same time.
I am using Excel 2010. I have been given a task at work that can save my team a lot of time if I can solve the problem. Every month, we have a spreadsheet with about 5000 rows that we have to email. In each row, there is a range that we have to email to a specific email. For example, I would have to copy and paste Range A2-R2 in the body of the email, and then email it to whatever email is in cell S2. I would then continue this for the next 5000 lines, making it a possibility that i will be sending 5000 emails manually.
I have been trying to come up with a solution through VBA that would automatically send these emails. My goal is to automatically send the Range A2-R2 to outlook email, then cell S2 into the "To" email address box, and then automatically send it. So far, i have successfully been able to send one row, but cannot figure out how to loop it for the remainder of the rows.
A couple other key points are that I have column headings as well (Range A1-R1). If possible, I want to be able to include the column headings in the email body as well. Example - first email would be range A1-R2. second email would be range A1-R1 and A3-R3, and so forth. The body of the email would also contain a standard script, such as "Please review the information below."
The goal here is to save everyone from having to send 5000+ manual emails. This would be a big boost for my team.
I am running a consolidation macro that keeps getting tripped up on a message box from excel. It is erroring out each time this box would normally pop up. It is not displaying the box, nor do I want it to. I just want it to not error by maybe invisible being set to 'yes' for this.
The message is due to data validation that is pointing to named ranges.
A formula or sheet you want to move or copy contains 'ThisName', which already exists in the destination worksheet. Do you wish to use this version of the name?
Below is some code that I found on the internet some while ago. When Excel opens this code runs which brings up a message box prompting a user to select an option. If no option is selected within 15 seconds then the macro runs, else it depends on the selection entered.
The problem that I am experiencing is that sometimes when the user does not select an option the macro does not execute after the coded 15 seconds. The message box just sticks around until a selection is made.
Most of the time it works just fine... some of the time it doesn't. The problem would appear to have gotten worse since upgrading to Excel 2010.
So, my question is either:
1. Why the code does not execute as expected each time Excel is opened? 2. Is there a better / more robust way of executing the below code without using "shell"?
I attached the sheet that I am trying to get up and running, there is two things I need to do, but cant get it working as I intend to.
Sheet 1 - When the invoice number is fulled in in cell F8 a message box must pop up requesting the hyperlink to the invoice saved on a share folder, but for now on the desktop, when the file is selected it (the hyperlink) must be returned to cell G8, then once the last cell (I8) has been completed, the line 8 must be locked so that it can't be editted again without a default password and a new line must be added below line 8 for processing, I tried recording the macro, but it only works on one line, and on the message box request, I truly am not up to speed yet, this I can't get up and running.
I would like to know if we can display a label with values of two different cells when hovered over a cell in excel 2010. All I want is ,When hovered over a cell I want its corresponding row and column heaing to be displayed.
1) for example i have two files Master.xls and client.xls , when ever the client.xls updated with values the master should automatically updated by the same values.
If i use the link concept , once the user delete the row then master file also automatically updated. So here i want to restrict the permissions to master file.
how can we do that ?
2 - Macros) I like to filter the data as per the column value. In case of less numbers we can hardcode the values for filter criteria. (by declaring an array variable and assigning the values to the array)
But if the values are very high how can we get assign the criteria dynamically ?
I have a worksheet in my Excel wookbook that references particular cells from another sheet. I use a simple macro to alter the values in some of these cells, but for some utterly bizzare reason, the cells referencing them are not updated. The only way to update the cells is to click on the cell and press Enter!
I've never had this problem before.
Does anyone know why this is, or perhaps know of a line of VBA code that updates every cell on a particular worksheet.
I tried multiple variations of searches for this, but can't seem to get this to work. I've been asked to perform some analysis on the number of direct reports for each manager in our company as well as the number of total reports. I have been able to calculate this with no problem. My difficulty comes with the request to be able to display this information in a particular way with Excel. (this is using Excel 2010)
What the VP would like to be able to do is to drill down on each manager to see all of their direct reports, and then, for any of those direct reports that are managers, be able to further drill down into those people's direct reports. The difficulty I am coming to is that, depending on the employee, there can be as many as 9 layers of management when I work this all the way up to the Executive Vice President Level.
My data is currently laid out such that my first 5 columns are identifiers such as employee id, employee name, job title and organization information. After that I have columns for the managerial hierarchy. For example first column of this (let's call it column H) is the EVP, the 2nd column (column I) is the Senior VP, 3rd column (column J) has the various reports to the senior VP, 4th column (column K) is the managers that report to those in column J, and so on, up to 9 layers.
For example, one of the employees in my finance area would have name of the EVP in column H, the SVP in column I, the director in column J, and their manager in column L. The remaining columns that could house hierarchy data are blank for them because of where they are in the hierarchy.
When I set up the pivot table, I placed each field of the managerial hierarchy in the row area and then the employee field at the end. The problem I encounter is that with all of the blank cells in the data due to the varying levels of the hierarchy, I get a lot of (blank) fields in the pivot table for any layer below where the person fits in (ie, for the example above, the EVP, SVP, and manager name come in find, but then it is (blank) on down to the employee name.) If I deselect (blank) in the field settings, it eliminates all of the rows that don;t go as far down in the hierarchy, i.e. I deselect (blank) at level 5, any employee that is 4 or less levels from the EVP does not appear.
I also tried doing the same as above but including the employee name in my hierarchy (so for the example above, the employee name would be placed in column M). This worked a bit, but then after every employee was the series of (blank) drill down options.
The ideal solution that I've been asked to come up with would be to have the data display as it does when I've set the pivot table up with the employee name in the appropriate hierarchy level, but not have the drill down (blank) show for those that don't have layers below them.
I am using Excel 2010 to create a simple chart. When I enter the information, highlight it and select a chart, the chart area appears blank. It doesn't matter what kind of chart I choose- it still appears blank. I've tried going into the Advanced options and indicating for All objects to be shown and that didn't work.
The situation is that I have 3 interest income from 3 different companies. Column B acts as a helper column to determine if a partner receives just one interest income or receives multiple interest income. If they receive multiple interest income, I want column B to display a 1 and if not make it blank. If you notice partners 5, 9, and 16 contain two or more interest incomes (Columns C - E). All the cells are have either an amount (positive or negative) or a zero. There are no blank cells. Columns (F - H) contains the interest income amount if only that partner receives just one interest income. So for those partners they should not display any of their amounts. The reason is because I am using a word template and currently have to use multiple templates ( 3 in total) to display correctly for each partner. I got this to work with a word macro that will collapse all non blank columns in a particular table. This might be on a ongoing project for me as I do have more logic to solve.
I have a spreadsheet where vehicle milage is entered at the end of each month. On another sheet I have the vehicle fleet numbers and the the months along the top. What I need to happen is; when the mileage cell is updated I need the cell in the other sheet to be automatically populated, when the mileage is updated the next month I need the next cell(February)to be populated with the new milage and so on. The aim is to calculate monthly milage for each vehicle without having to enter the date at the beginning and end of the month.
Everyone I work with is completely computer illiterate and only knows how to enter the data the same way they always have(just the once at the end of the month) changing it up will only cause issues.
