I am working on a workbook which uses a large number of variables. I am trying to keep them as "local" as possible to keep it simple. Some of my variables are local to the subs they're used in. Some are global as they're used by subs in several sheets. A third type of variable is used by several subs all belonging to the same sheet. Is there a way of declaring them so they're known by all subs in that sheet, but not by every sub in the workbook?
I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)
I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.
I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.
I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.
I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.
Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?
The first goes through a directory and opens all the files.. after it opens a given file it goes off into a sub-routine to process the data in that file.
I am trying to create a counter in the first sub-routine and then pass that value into the second sub-routine to tell it to put the values out on the next row down.. so the first time through it puts the values out on row 1, next time it puts them out on row 2, etc.
I have an excel workbook with a dynamic dependent drop down list setup, works a treat on the first worksheet i set it up on.
However here's the problem, my workbook contains a good handful of worksheets each named to reflect the certificate on the page, i need the drop down list to work on each tab. problem is when i setup the index/match function it requires a specific sheet name to make it work i.e.
If I want to set a global variable when I open my workbook which will be used in code on the individual spreadsheets, how would I do this? I want to set the time the workbook is opened to a variable (constant) and then compare that time to current time on each calculation in the worksheets.
I would like have a input box in which a user enter a number and then I would like to be able to use that number in other worksheets within the same workbook. How do I declare the variable for use with other sheets. I know I would first use
Dim intRows As Interger But now how do I make it global.
I have a worksheet that has 2 sheets. I want to declare a variable that can be accessed for reading and/or overwriting by both of those sheets. Where do I declare it and how do I access it from Sheet1 for example?
I have a smattering of experience within various programming languages, but am still coming to terms with the basics of VBA. I am trying to declare a global variable, assign it a value, then use that global variable. Within 'ThisWorkbook' I have the following...
Public myText As String Private Sub Workbook_Open() myText = "Hi There" End Sub
...and in the Microsoft Worksheet Object Sheet1 (Sheet1) I have...
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) MsgBox myText End Sub
Now, my understanding of this code is that upon opening the workbook, myText variable will be declared, and then assigned the value "Hi There". Then, once I have clicked anywhere on Sheet1, a message box will appear stating "Hi There". Problem is, the message box is blank. This is all fine, except I want the message box to state "Hi There". What am I doing wrong? Is the variable declared (publically) correctly? Am I assigning the public variable the value correctly? Am I referencing the public variable correctly in the Worksheet_SelectionChange procedure correctly?
I maked a userform who use global parameters (to let the user decide where write things) and later i need to use this parameter in a module (who is the main program). I try to resolve this problem put this global parameters like global parameters in the module and later in the both sides (in the module and in the useform), but it can't work. How i can resolve that?, i.e., How i can use a global parameter in a userform and the same global parameter in the modulo with the same data?
I have a UserForm that runs when my excel project starts that prompts the user for two pieces of data: a username and a password (these are not for logging into the file itself, I need to use them to call web queries later). I want the UserForm to store both of these data in global variables, so that macros that are run in the future can refer to them and read their values. Unfortunately, I am very new to VBA and I cannot figure out what code I need and where exactly I need to put it. Here is my current code, where "authentication" is the name of the UserForm object, and the textboxes I use for entry are named "user" and "pass": In "This Workbook"
how to declare&initialize a variable as Global in vba?
I have a variable , listGroup=Array("aaa","bbb","ccc") now i am using this variable for 3 different functions. so what i am doing is wrote the same code to 3 functions, so how i can declare&initialize this variable as global and access to all functions.
I need to declare a global variable in Application level not Module level.
I have declare a variable in Module1 and then Module2 with same name then complile it and get success. That means there has two variable with same name in different Module. I think this was not a proper global variable declaration by which I can allow to declare only one variable in all Module, Class every where. I have used code as below -
How can one change the cell values of a worksheet by creating a setup page in another worksheet. Example: the worksheet value is =average(E7, F7, G7, AQ7)*0.6 -- which this formula makes 60% of the average. On the setup page or worksheet I want o change value of *0.6 to say *0.5 for all the cell that has this value. In other words form the setup all the values will change on the related worksheet from the setup page.
I am fairly new to macros and have trouble with VBA. I have a file with multiple worksheets. Each worksheet contains the name of a specific location in cell A8. I want this name in cell A8 to be the name on the worksheet tab for each worksheet in my file but do not know how to accomplish this. Is that even possible?
My problem is when I refer to the first worksheet from the second worksheet it shows blanks where there are no names. For example i want the second sheet [ LOC ] to show the names that appear under Truck #1, #2, #3, #4 - but truck #1 may not always have names under it?
I have two workbooks I am using. Essentially I am copying values out of one workbook, opening a second workbook, manipulating data and pasting it. Everything is working great but one issue! The first workbook has named ranges in it that I don't want in the second workbook (just values). I don't want them because when I try this operation the second time it asks if I want to use the same name or choose a different name. For some reason it is still copying over all the named ranges (all 343 of them!). Is there a way to not allow it to do that or simply just delete the names before I close the second workbook?
formula to take a value from one sheet and add to it in Excel 2010? I'm naming the sheets but not necessarily numerically. I have done it by manually entering the sheet name but would like it to figure out the sheet name automatically based on where the sheet is located in the workbook. That way I can copy the current sheet, rename it and still have it update properly with a running total. Here is what I have now: =D7+'011514'!E7
The easiest way I can describe the scenario I am trying to create, is to use a company list of personnel (my index) and to generate a time-sheet workbook per person based on a pre-populated template. This time-sheet is saved as the persons name and has the persons name entered into cell D:10
I have a workbook which contains two worksheets;
1) An Index sheet which contains a list of names that I wish to use in Q16 downwards (note the length of this list will vary each time I run this)
2) A "template" sheet which I wish to duplicate in new workbooks
3) A second "data" sheet that I wish to copy across in new workbooks
I need a macro that will take the "template" and "data" sheets and copy it into a new workbook, renaming each new workbook to each name in my Index sheet. I also want that same Name to be copied into cell reference D:10 of the "template" each time.
The end result is that I should have a series of new files generated and saved which are named the same as the Index list, with both the "Template" sheet and the "Data" sheet present, with the cell D:10 pre-populated with the Name provided in the "Template" sheet.
I need to return a value dependent on a few criteria. Type will be selected via a drop down and then it must lookup the same type in the top row and then the value which will be between two values and then return the grade on the far left.
I am working with Excel 2010 and I have a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I am trying to find the first nonzero cell and begin an average function from that cell and down through 29 rows (a total of 30 rows).
FinalRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row For I = 3 To FinalRow If Cells(I,3).Value 0 Then 'I use the above to identify the first nonzero cell ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "average(........)
This is where I am stuck, I don't know how to code the first nonzero (which can change with different data) cell and average rows below it.
I'm trying to pass a variable from Word to Excel. Basically I have a Word document with a plain text content control in it. I'll have users populate this field. I know how to create a reference to that content contol in Word VBA that'll tell me what's in that content control (eg.
I have a victim of the Index-Match duplication problem in Excel (2010). Basically, I have three columns of data, all daily input for the year.
Column 1 = Date Column 2 = Actual (Units Sold) Column 3 = Scheduled (Units Sold)
The Date is filled out through the end of the year as is the Scheduled values. The Actual values are filled out daily.
I need to generate a summary box that reports Actual, Scheduled, and Variance (Actual - Scheduled) for the time periods Daily, Month to Date, and YTD.
My problem is that when I try to return the Schedule value that corresponds with the date of the last entry, I don't know if I am pulling the correct Schedule value since I do not know if the Actual value (that is pulled from the last value in the Actual column) is unique. So I tried using an Index-Match formula to return the latest value (that is the last record occurrence of the value) to my function in order to retrieve the correct Schedule value, but, sadly, it did not work.
I by no means am an Excel expert like many of you, so I may have some questions along the way.
I've attached a sample extraction from my worksheet and included an example of the Summary panel I'm creating.
The context of this problem is that I am pulling sales data from different outlets to analyse monthly sales. The data from the various outlets are in various formats and the products, even though they are the same throughout all the stores, are named differently. For example, Mushroom Soup can be named as "Soup Mushroom", "Mushroom Soup" or "Cream of Mushroom". This makes analysis really tough.
I first created a table with a list (K6:P6) that had the varying names of the products. This is shown as the first table with 3 rows.
Then I tried to match this list to a range of products sold by an outlet e.g. Electric. (shown in the next bigger table $D$10:$D$254, ) Next, I used Index to call up and display the sales of that product next to table with list A ($G$10:$G$254)
This works for some entries but not for all. I get mostly #NA answers even though I do ctrl-shift-enter. Also, the bigger table is in a separate file and I am using excel 2010.
