Excel 2010 :: How To Assign Macro From One Sheet To Form Button On Different Sheet
Mar 6, 2014
I am running excel 2010 with windows 7. I created a macro in sheet 1 and I wish to activate the macro from sheet 2 using a form button. I have entered the code below. I know how to perform this function on a more simple macro like adding names to cells. This code is a bit more complex I just dont know where to start.
This works fine, my only problem is if the button that is created is actually named Button2 or 3, etc. Is there a way to assign the new button to a variable, or would it be an object? this way it wouldn't matter what it was named.
I am using Excel 2010 and I have a password protected workbook with password protected sheets that uses several macros. Most of them, in order to run, have to un-protect the sheet and then re-protect it again. This has been accomplished easily enough by adding ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:= "mypassword" and ActiveSheet.Protect Password:= "mypassword" to the appropriate places in the script. All of my macros, which do various things like sorting and moving data, deleting blank rows, displaying dialog boxes containing warning messages etc. run fine.
My problem is this: when I password protect the sheets manually, I have checked the following options in the "Protect Sheet" dialog box. Under "Allow users of this worksheet to" I have checked 1)Select unlocked cells and 2)Format cells. After entering my password and closing the dialog box my sheet is protected, but I can edit cells in the manner my allowances permit. However, once I run any of the macros that un-protect and re-protect the sheet, I remain able to select and edit unlocked cells (practically, for my purposes, this means that I can input data which will appear in the default font size and color of the sheet) but I cannot format cells (which, practically, for my purposes would allow me to occasionally change the font color and size of the data). Naturally, after running a macro, the other cell-formatting options are unavailable to me as well. Is there any way to get my manual selections to remain in place after running a macro that functions as mine do? Or is there any way to make my manual selections the default settings for a protected sheet?
I have 2 workbooks in Excel 2010, each contain just 1 sheet. (see attached) I need to compare on sheet 1, cell D1 and column A:A (this column will be much longer), with the data in columns C:C & A:A on sheet 2, if a corresponding match is found, the data contained in column D on the same row on sheet 2 is written to the cell with the matching data in sheet 1.
I have a validation drop down menu with the 12 months in it on Sheet 1. User picks the current month from the drop down list. I have 12 macros in the workbook, one for each month. Based on what month the user selects from the drop down, I would like to run a specific macro. The macro hides specific columns on sheet 2 of the workbook.
for example...user picks May from drop down which triggers macro MAY to run. If user picks Jun next month, macro JUN will run.
I have a form button on a worksheet which calls a specified macro, is it possible to have the text which shows on the button, dynamic? I have created a template excel file, which the user needs to set up as they see fit. I have a separate page which is an 'admin' page where they can customize the narrative in the main template, which includes being able to change the text on form buttons on sheet 1. I have tried with this: Sheets("Approvals").Object("Button 1").Text = Sheets("Admin").Range("e14").value
This unfortuantely results in a "run time error '438' Object doesn't support this property or method". From that i would assume this function is not available, but i'm hoping someone may know a way around it??
The sheet shown, Complaints, lists on each row information on a single complaint. This information extends from Col A to Col Y (though not that way here, the data actually begins in row 3). I want to highlight a Customer cell, say H227 for Customer A, then activate a macro that (1) recognizes the active customer (here A), searches the list, identifies each row where A is the customer and then writes each row into sheet "Event" beginning in row 4. I should then see the same A to Y cells of information, beginning in row 4, filled in sheet Event for the six customer A complaints. Note, the actual data in sheet Complaints involves 300 rows of data, and over 100 customers can be on the list, some up to 15 times. I know that I could do this by filtering the data, copying and pasting, but a simple macro would be quicker for the group of individuals involved. Note, I then use this information to populate a chart.
User inputs cost in a cell then clicks macro button that will run a macro that ask for a task description. The user inputs the task info that relates to the cost (i.e. weld pipe). This data is stored on a seperate sheet in the corresponding cell (cost is on sheet "hours" and task description is on sheet "task description" both in same cell. This allows a copy of the cost sheet to reflect the task description. I have tried recording macros but can't get anywhere.
Now that the calculations are working, with the press of a button, I need to be able to select a range of dates and copy all lines within the range to a seperate sheet with the desired name under the same headings they currently reside under. I have included some modified code that is being used in another spreadsheet that was created for me, but I do not pretent to understand all of it and I no longer work with the creator of the spreadsheet. How do I use a button to open the form for date selections and entering the name of the new sheet, and then use the start button on the form to begin the matching and copying to a new sheet? If there is an easier way I am all for that too.
I keep getting an automation error in excel 2010 when I click on the button that executes the macro. Excel crashes when the box appears. There is no code in the error box. Why I get this error message.
I am new to VBA programming so i might be making a obvious mistake. I am trying to create a macro that will insert rows depending on a cell value. I also need this to be executed from a command button rather then to occur immediately after the cell value is entered. So as a example
Lets say Cell A2 has a value 20 Cell A3 has a value 3 Cell A4 has a value 5
when this data is entered and then a Command button poressed there should be
How to fill a web form automatically with excel data. I need to sign up like 300 people on a site per day. Their detail are given to me in excel. How can I automatically fill the form with the excel data without spending time doing copy and paste for each person's data?
I have 1 sheet where in sheet 2 i have two type data and that is 1 level service data and 2 level service data. In sheet 1 i wanted 2 buttons that is 1 level service button and 2 level service button. and i wanted that if i will click on 1 level service button it iwll give me the 1 level service data from sheet 2.
i have created a form in excel sheet1 (not a VBA form) and there are 10 cells with headings in the form which need to fill the data but i want to copy certain cells (suppose 6 different cells) from my form which is in sheet1 and paste to another sheet2 to certain columns horizontally.
Currently I work on a file which will be more like a form which will be filled by user and after he or she hits the button, the filled data will be written or sent to another Excel file or even Sheet in the same workbook which will store the filled data in database like form. The same as some web form which will post the data to database.
In other words, the workbook contains to sheets, one with forms to be filled in (cells) and one with specified columns. After filling in the cells on the first sheet and hitting the button, it will trigger the macro which will send data to second sheet and post data from each cell to appropriate column.
While practicing writing macros and studying the VBA code, I decided to add a button to run the macro, something I've done many times in the past. But the option to associate the new button with any macro doesn't seem to be available.
As you can see its just a Job logging spreadsheet, What I am trying to do is create a jobs out standing log that will probably go in place of the Search Results sheet.
I have a job Info sheet that is just for new jobs and a Jobs Done sheet that is for jobs done, in the Search Results sheet I would like to have Jobs Outstanding, this would be done by matching the Job Number in the Job Info & Jobs Done Info sheets and giving me a report on all outstanding Jobs. I would also like to add a Jobs Outstanding Button to the Intro Sheet.
I have a workbook with a number of active sheets, I am wanting to be able to create a button that allows the user to upload an image from their computer to a particular cell. I wish to be able to create a fixed size for this image so it crops it proportionally. In effect it is a button that open the insert picture dialog. I then want this picture to be placed in a particular cell.
I can then use this picture in other part of the workbook so that it inserts it in to other areas.
I have to modify 2000 files so I've written a master file that loops through a list, importing modules and forms into the 2000 files it opens and closes. On each file when open it draws a button on worksheet. I then want to assign a macro to the button called "ModifyMenu" . The code for 'Modifymenu' is imported into file_01.xls and is a unique name. It does not exist is master.xls, so no confusion.
The code for assigning the code is as follows :
Windows("file_01.xls").Activate ActiveSheet.Shapes("Button").Select or Workbooks("file_01.xls").Sheets("1 B").Shapes("Button").Select
Selection.OnAction = "ModifyMenu" (This links to master.xls!ModifyMenu not file_01.xls)
Selection.OnAction = "file_01.xls!ModifyMenu" (This fails, runtime 1004. 'Unable to set the OnAction property of the button class)
Selection.OnAction = ThisWorkbook.Name & "!ModifyMenu" (This links to master. MAster is the active code even though 'file_01.xls' is the active worksheet)
Variations on the above seem to result in the same 1004 error or linking back to master regardless of the fact I'm trying to link to file_01.xls.
I have a start page in the beginning of my excel workbook. This is where i want to assign a macro to a search button. I want the macro to search the entire workbook but only in a certain block on each worksheet.
I'm Using Excel 2007 and would like to have some VBA to work with the following!
I have a simple pivot table (PivotTable1) in Sheet1 with three items in the Report Filter which has been named "ROUTE" I have created a ComboBox in Sheet2 and have added the identical three items in via format control, cell link A1.
I would like to be able to use the combobox in sheet2 to operate the PivotTable Report Filter in Sheet1 as I would like to build a report whereas a user. Can only select the comboBox and does not see the pivotTable
Sounds simple but cannot get this to work no matter what I try.
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
