Excel 2010 :: Double Clicking Rows Is Not Expanding To Wrapped Text?
Mar 31, 2014
My cells have wrap around text enables. However when I double-click the row, it does not automatically adjust the row height to accommodate all of the text. It shrinks to a small row height. How do I fix this?
I upgraded to Excel 2010 from Excel 2000 a couple months ago. In Excel 2010, after double-clicking on values in a pivot table to create a new worksheets, I'm unable to highlight those worksheets and add a column to all of them. I was able to do this in Excel 2000... I can't figure out what's stopping it from happening for the life of me. Am I missing something obvious here?
I have two pivot tables where if one expands a subtotal (in this case 'manufacturer') to give the lines below (products made by the manufacturer), is it possible for this to be mirrored in the second pivot? I noted a previous comment on using slicers across two pivots but I cannot do this in this instance, although I am using Excel 2010.
how to run some VBA code (written by someone else, unfortunately) only when clicking once in cell A1, and not run in any other cell. This is being run in Excel 2010. The code I would like to run in this manner is below, and currently will run when the user clicks on any cell in the worksheet it is applied.
[ Option Explicit_________________________________________ Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) 'If IsDate(Target.Cells(1, 1).Value) Then Set DatePickerForm.Target = Target.Cells(1, 1) DatePickerForm.Show vbModal Cancel = True 'End If End Sub ]
I'm currently using Excel 2010. Before, when ctrl+v'ing a cell that wasn't a number (but was, for example, a function), I could immediately after press ctrl, bring up a paste menu, and press v to paste as a value.
So before, if I had a range of cells that were functions (say something simple like "=D3/E3" on F3 and dragged down), I could do the following to paste the range into another worksheet:
1. Ctrl+shift+down to select the entire range 2. Ctrl+C 3. Ctrl+V into a different worksheet (at which point everything shows up as either "#DIV/0!" or as the wrong number, depending on cells to the left) 4. Ctrl (brings up the paste menu) 5. V (selects "values") 6. The entire range is now pasted as values, and not as functions
Recently, however, clicking on "ctrl" after pasting brings up no paste menu. I haven't changed any settings. I will lovingly serenade the first (and second, and third) man (or woman) that figure out what settings I must change or what I must do differently.
I have a spreadsheet with formulas in column C, D, E, F and G. The only numbers I need to enter are in columns A and B. The formula in column C comes from the =SUM(B1/A1) Column D is calculated based on the result of column C, etc...
How can I set up the spreadsheet so that when I enter the data in column A and B, everything else calculates automatically; without having to double click and press enter in each cell?
My Goal: To put data (numbers) in Column A and B and than have C, D, E, F and G calculate by themselves without clicking.
I have two pieces of code. The first one puts a tick mark in the cell when you double click it. The second one hides column B of another sheet if the value in cell A1 of Sheet1 is "a". I want to combine these two codes so that when I double click cell A1 of sheet1 it puts a tick mark in the cell and hides column B of Sheet2 and clears the contents of range B2:B50 of Sheet2.
We just upgraded our machines to Excel 2010 and now I'm having an issue with copying forumlas down. In Excel 2007 (and 03) if you double clicked in the bottom right corner of a cell, Excel would autofill your formula (or data set) down until the last row of data in your range. Have tried all the settings in 2010 and can't get it to work. All I'm able to do is do a manual copy/paste or highlight all the cells and select fill down.
I have the following workbook that has potential to display large amounts of text, particularly in the NOTIFICATIONS section. Despite the cells having Wrap Text selected, only a single line of the text is visible while the rest is only displayed when the cell is clicked.
I would like to accomplish 2 things in my Excel 2010 spreadsheet by click a cell which already has a number and formatting in it.
1. How do I change the color of the cell, the color of the number in it, and the border around it. (Make it look like I just pressed a button by clicking it.)
2. At the same time have the text in different cell and the number in the selected cell appear in another different cell. (Text in a different cell = A , and the number in the selected cell = 23, the value in the resulting cell be "A 23") Everything I would like to happen at the same time by clicking the selected cell. I would also like this to be done several times by clicking different cells and not changing the previously selected cells.
i use excel 2007, it s slow to open a file by double-clicking and entering from windows explorer, by googling i fould a fix by adding "%1" at the end of command in "Application used to perform action" (folder options/file types/xls/advance/open). however, to open files in the same instance, i have to keep "DDE message" with [open("%1")]. With both "%1", excel now opens twice. How to fix it?
What is the VBA code for inserting text in all column B-cells of multiple selected rows?
I am creating a worksheet with a table containing various data related to orders of various materials (this is more or less data gathering from an older, paper-based 'system'). This table spans, columnwise, from A to D and expands downwards as more orders are added. The information in each column is: A=order number, B=type of material and C=material specs. and D=additional comments.
I've set it up so that the only thing I really have to do is to insert the type of material in the cells of column B, and the rest will sort itself out. Instead of having to insert a new row for each new entry and manually typing in the name of the material (these entries are often done in the midst of already existing data), I created several similar, macroed buttons for the different types of materials we use. These macros work by selecting the row of the currently active cell, inserting a new row and then add the name of the material in the column B-cell of this new row. What I am having trouble doing though, is to get the text-entry to work for a selection of multiple cells.
As an example, lets say that I would like to add 5 orders of "Grade A Steel" in the middle of the table - in the row above row 8. With the macro I currently have I can select cell B5, click the macro, and a new row will be inserted with "Grade A Steel" in column B of this new row. This action could be performed 5 times over, but would be easier if I could just mark a range of 5 cells, say B8:B12, click the macro and get the text/data inserted the column B-cells of all 5 of the new rows. So far I've been able to create a macro that inserts multiple new rows, but I've only been successful in filling the column B-cell in the first row leaving the 4 below empty.
"Month" is in A3, "Headcount" is in B3. Figures are on rows 4:24
What I need is a formula that will average the last 12 rows of data so that when a new record is added, the average will update automatically to include the newly added row, but still only look at the 12 rows (i.e. for the data as listed it would average rows 13:24 (Oct-08 to Sep-09), but when data for October is added, it would average rows 14:25 (Nov-08 to Oct-09).
calculate the number of full rows in one data base located on one sheet X to determine how many rows the macro needs to extend on sheet B (sheet B is made only of formulas for data interpretation in sheet A.
Obviously I can do this using text to columns and transpose but typically I'm dealing with much bigger sheets where being able to do this automatically is a big time saving.
The column with commas in it can vary in position so I'd like this to work on the cell/column that is selected.
Ideally I'd like it to work it's way down the sheet expanding out every comma separated list in the selected column in this fashion but even something that worked on the current cell would be handy.
I think roughly I need to split the cell into an array using the comma as a seperator, possibly scrub the spaces from the text, copy the row as many times as there are things in this array (using ubound?) and then transpose the array into an area starting at the selected row and going down as far as there are things in the array but a bit lost with actual implementation.
My chart data range is: ='Summary Data'!$A$2:$BF$8.
Since it expands a few times a week to BG, BH, BI etc., it seemed to make sense to use the standard OFFSET and COUNTA formula to expand it. The every time I typed the Offset formula in, it worked but each time I save it, it changes to an updated (correct) fixed reference. i.e. back to the format above.
Many threads I've read seem to say that you should be able to use an expanding range in charting.
I am looking for some to create a simple macro to sort multiple rows in ascending order based on the values in a particular column in the selected range. I want to sort A4:AI1004 in ascending order by column D. I recorded the following macro in Excel 2010:
Sub sort() ' ' sort Macro ' sort by column D (Sequence #) ' ' Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
First of all, I think this code can probably be simplified. Secondly, it does not work in older versions of Excel. In 2007 it always ends in a runtime error. How can I clean this up so that it will work in both versions of Excel?
