Excel 2010 :: How To Select Userform Button And Activate With Pressing Enter Key
Jul 2, 2012
I have developed a Userform button in Excel 2010 using the developer icons, which when clicked on with my mouse it runs my super dooper macro. It works great!
But one thing I want to have happen is to have the choice of using the Enter key to start the macro or use the left mouse button
For example, I place data in (say) cell A1 and the userform button is in cell A2. When I place the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves down to A2, but doesn't highlight the user button. When I press the Enter key again, the cursor moves to cell A3.
What I want is when I fill in the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves to cell A2 and selects the button, so that when I press the Enter key again, it activates the macro.
I have a formulas in Sheet1 linked to other sheets, but I have only formula and there are no sheets ( eg: in sheet 1 A1 =Data!A1) where as there is no sheet called Data. I have a macro to import this sheets from a different file.
The problem I am facing is, after importing the sheets, the formula still shows #REF but if I do double click the cell or press F2 and then "Enter" the value appears. I have about 1200 formulas in this sheets.
I have set the default in Excel to move across to the next cell after I press Enter. This is fine for most workbooks but I have a particular workbook in which it would be preferable (save keystrokes) for the cursor to move down one cell. Is it possible to have one action as the default but another for a particular workbook?
I know I can use Filter and filter out characters like &'!/; but that takes too long because I have a lot of lists to go through with thousands of entries. There must be a macro that will close spaces between words when only one space exists, but eliminate every word if 2 or more spaces exist between words - as well as eliminate unwanted characters like the ones I described above. I know I could use substitute and eliminate the spaces between words =substitute(a1," ","") but then I'd have to filter each and every instance of unwanted character.
I have userform with date pickers and have text boxes overlaid on these, when I select todays date from the date picker it does not display the current date in the text box (I have 8 date pickers on the userform). If I select another date then reselect the current date it works. It has occasionally worked but why.
Below is the code for populating the text box from the Date Picker.
Private Sub DTPicker1_Change() TextBox1.Value = DTPicker1.Value End Sub
The initialize userform code uses the following to format and set the textbox
Can I make the cursor use only 2 columns? In other words, I know that when I scan barcode data into A1, I have the cursor automatically move to B1. BUT, once I've scanned data into B1, how do I make the cursor automatically move to A2?
Is it possible to launch Excel at a specified time without someone pressing a button?
I'm working on a network which has disabled Scheduled Tasks. The purpose of this request is to launch Excel in the early hours of the day so that a macro would run and update the data from a data source. The macro works brilliantly, but I without anyone in the office at 2am to open Excel, I need to find a way to launch it automatically.
Also, I don't have permissions to install programs or add-ins from the Internet. It doesn't leave me with many options, but I'm just wondering if there's a trick that has so far eluded me.
I have a button in a template file, that when clicked, saves the file as a new file with file name based on data in certain cells.
I want to disable the ability to save the file with the Save icon or Ctrl-S, but the button still needs to be able to save it (the button is technically doing a Save As, so no problem there). But, I, as the administrator of the template, need to somehow be able to save updates to the template file. Can this be accomplished by coding Save to work when used with a secret key combination that only I know (I can put it in password-protected VB code)?
Then, as if that's not tricky enough, the trickier part is that once the file is saved as the new file (no longer the template) - re-enable the Save button and Ctrl-S so the user can then save it as many times as they want.
In the following code, I have a find sub... when the user enters a date and hits the "Enter" key, is there a way to bypass the "Ok" key?
Private Sub cmdFind_Click() Dim ws As Worksheet, myDate Dim rFoundDate As Range
'check for valid distribution date (between October 1, 2006 thru December 31, 2014) myDate = txtFindMyDate With myDate If DateValue(txtFindMyDate) < DateValue("10/1/2006") Or DateValue(txtFindMyDate) > DateValue("12/11/2014") Then MsgBox "Please enter a date between October 2006 and December 2014" .SetFocus Exit Sub End If End With
I have a macro that will email a link of the worksheet.
the problem is I may have different email addresses to send it to. I want to be able to have an input box come up, and the person to enter in an email address, click ok and have the macro continue to email.
Sub Make_Outlook_Mail_With_File_Link() 'Working in Office 2000-2010 Dim OutApp As Object Dim OutMail As Object Dim StrBody As String If ActiveWorkbook.Path "" Then Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
Have developed a form for my associates and want them to be able to move to the cellls I want them to fill data in to by merely hitting the TAB or ENTER key vs. having to move the cursor to each cell requiring them to input data.
Want cursor to move in a specific cell order. You would think you could merely say 1M, 2C, etc.
Is there code for worksheet activate event that will reprogram the Enter Key to mimic the Tab Key such that if you hit Enter, the cell to the right of the active cell is selected? I've searched the net for several hours today and find nothing that addresses this question.
Also, the Enter Key would have to be normalized on worksheet deactivate.
I'm using Excel 2010, and I need to restrict the value the user can enter into a cell (E9).
In cell E3 is the screen width (pixels). eg 6024 In cell E5 is the preferred width of a window. eg 450
The user, in cell E9, enters an x coordinate for which they prefer the top left corner of the window whose width is specified in E5.
If the value that the user enters in E9, added to the width entered in E5, exceeds the value of E3, (if E9+E5 > E3) then the value should be disregarded (window will be off right of screen) and the user re-enter.
I'm not familiar with the use of data validation, so I'm uncertain as to how to use it in this circumstance.
With Excel 2000 Hyperlinks to other locations in a Workbook such as an Index to other worksheets can be achieved (executed) with the Enter Key. When using the same file in Excel 2003 the only way to execute the Hyperlink is by clicking with the Mouse.
Is there any way to get Hyperlinks to operate the same (with the Enter Key) in Excel 2003?
I'm having some trouble getting control ENTER & EXIT events to fire properly when having controls embedded on frames within a userform. I'm using Excel 2003, 2007, & 2010. Here's the userforms I'm working with:
In both cases, the DESCRIPTION field is disabled. The selectable controls on both are a combo-box, textbox, listbox, & 2 buttons. On the FRAMED version, the combo-box & textbox are contained on a FRAME.
Here's the code, same on both userforms:
Code: Option Explicit Private Sub cmbRecipes_Enter() ListBox1.AddItem "ENTER - " & cmbRecipes.Value End Sub Private Sub cmbRecipes_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) ListBox1.AddItem "EXIT - " & cmbRecipes.Value End Sub
All this is doing is posting a message to the listbox when the combo-box ENTER & EXIT events fire. This works as expected without the FRAME, ENTER is shown when the combo-box is entered and EXIT is shown as focus is moved to another control. But when running it on the FRAMED version all I get is a single ENTER event recorded regardless of how I move the focus through the control set.
Another oddity is that if I have more than 1 control that can receive focus on the FRAMED version, it appears to work correctly.
When I select the binoculers by project the window we are disucssing with the radio button comes up (after the project number is added and sendkey to select filter - only shows one radio button). Attached is the source code of the original window and a snapshot of what it looks like.
First window - I currently have the code going to the project area (where we cannot type anything) then using sendkey to tab and enter to select the binoculers.
New window - only one radio button shows after you type a project number than hit filter.
