Excel 2010 :: Selection Change Event On Text Inside Textbox?

Jun 10, 2014

As part of a program I'm writing in VBA (for Excel 2010), I have a textbox in a user form used as an interface to write a formula in cells in Excel.The resulting value of a formula from a cell is loaded up into the textbox. It would be shown in the textbox like "See 1.2 and 1.3" where the formula in the cell is


This is just used as an example but the principle is there. It is worth noting that I’m writing this for very inexperienced Excel users but I need them to be able to edit the string part of the formula without breaking the formula.

However where I’m struggling is to pick up a selection change event inside a text box already selected. I need to be able to check if the textbox.SelStart is within an address value or within the string in the textbox.

The event Enter won’t work if the user is already editing the textbox (i.e. typing stuff) and then clicking or using the keyboard arrow to move the cursor somewhere else inside the textbox. I don’t think the event Change is the solution either as it would mean that the user would have already typed something and as a result the formula may already be broken.

I have had a good look around and I didn’t find an event for a selection change inside a textbox. Does it exists and/or is there a way that would have the same result?

Run Selection Change Event Only If The Row Selection Changes

Mar 26, 2007

I'm using the following code in a worksheet:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
col = ActiveCell.Column
Range("output") = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -(col - 4)).Value
End Sub

In case it's not obvious, the macro places the value in the active row and 4th column of the worksheet into the range "output".
The problem is, the worksheet is large and somewhat slow to recalculate. This macro forces a recalc on any selection change, but i only need it to run when the row selection changes, not the column.
I'm sure there's a straightforward way to reprogram this.

TextBox Change Event On MultiPage

May 17, 2006

I have a MultiPage control that has 67 TextBoxes on it, changes to 14 of these TextBoxes will trigger a public subroutine called TB1Refresh. I have a TextBox and a ComboBox just above the MultiPage control. The ComboBox is set as a MultiColumn. The ComboBox is working. The TextBox is called TB1. The first TextBox on the MultiPage is called TB2. There are no duplicate names on this UserForm. When I scroll though the list in CB1, the values in the TextBoxes on the MultiPage scroll as the they are supposed to. The problem is that every time one of the 14 TextBoxes changes, the subroutine is supposed to fire. Here is the code I use in two of the TextBoxes to fire this sub:

Private Sub TB8_Change()
End Sub

Private Sub TB9_Change()
End Sub

I put a MsgBox at the beginning and the end of TB1Refresh to see what was happening. They never fired! So the question is, why won't the subroutine fire when called upon to do so. This code was working before I added the MultiPage to this UserForm,

Screen Flickers On Selection Change Event?

Mar 9, 2012

My screen flickers when I use the following code.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.EnableEvents = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Dim WTH As Long
If Target.Row = 19 Then
WTH = 1
End If
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
If I comment out the code, my screen doesn't flicker.

In the "Tmp = 1" line I was using the special cells method to color constants red (without selecting anything). When I use that code instead of the "Tmp=1" line, it takes about a second to change cells, and I see the "4 Processors Calculating Message" in Excel when the code fires--even if it's not in row 19.

Worksheet Selection Change Event Not Triggered

Mar 5, 2009

I am using Excel 2007, and I have a macro (that is working) that I would like to run whenever there has been a new selection in a dropdown list on my worksheet. I have done this many times before in other workbooks, and I have always used:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

End Sub

To my knowledge this should trigger the macro when the dropdown selection changes. However, this time it is not working. The macro runs fine manually, but it does not run when the dropdown selection changes.

Cannot Keep Typing In Userform Textbox After Change Event

Jul 31, 2014

I have a userform that i have set the showmodal property to false.

This form has a list box that is populated with a huge list of items. I have a textbox in the userform that i use as a filter. so as the user types in something it filters the results in the listbox.

This was working fine but I added to the code to put a tooltip in when hovering over a item in the listbox. (using windows API to achieve).

The problem now is after i type one letter in the text box and it runs the change event it doesnt place the cursor at the end of the textbox anymore to continue typing.

I have tried setting focus to the textbox at the end of the event but nothing happens. I have searched all over the internet with no luck.

Stop Selection Change Event Firing When More Than 1 Cell

Oct 12, 2007

I've set up code where when a cell within a specified range of cells is selected, a macro will run. This works all well and good except for when a whole row, column or range containing the defined cells is selected, there is a run time error. There is no situation where I want multiple cells selected to run the macro, so I only want to run the macro when only a single cell within that range is selected.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange")) Is Nothing Then
Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter"
End If

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange2")) Is Nothing Then
Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter"
End If
End Sub

The ranges defined are non-contigious ranges.

Excel 2010 :: Automatically Change Text Entries To Set Number ID / VBA?

Jul 24, 2014

Basically I first want to be able define around 100 variables such as:

Dog = 1
Cat = 2
Mouse = 3

And so on. The reason being my final data needs to be the numbers for it's purpose but because there are so many I can't possibly remember them all to just type out 23 | 44 | 76 | 2 etc. What I would like to then happen is that whenever I type out the words in a cell it's automatically replaced with the number ID.

So typing in


would automatically result in


In those cells when I hit enter or at the end in one go. Is this at all possible in Excel 2010?

Excel 2010 :: Combobox Event Error

Jul 10, 2013

Using Excel 2010. I have a ComboBox (Not ActiveX) on a worksheet

I'm trying to add an event so that when user click on a choice a macro is fired using the selected item as citeria for a filter When I click on the drop down and make a selection I receive this error msg:

Cannot find the macro "cboUserSelection_Change" The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled

I also tried _AfterUpdate - similar error message.

I added the Combo Box code to the Worksheet code, not a standard module

I was able to run a quick test macro so I do not believe "all macros are disabled"

Excel 2010 :: Catching User Delete Row / Column Event Possible?

Nov 15, 2012

If possible, I'd like to be able to catch & handle the event of a User deleting a row (or potentially a column) from a specific Worksheet so I can then implement some automated "housekeeping processing" on other existing rows / columns.

I'm using XL 2010 so from what I've found so far it looks like I should possibly be using the Worksheet_Change() function, but beyond that I'm currently stuck.

Excel 2010 :: Run Listbox CLICK Event After Item Is Selected?

Feb 21, 2013

Excel 2007/2010.

Hope this is fairly easy to solve. I have Screen #1 with a listbox with a CLICK event. The event populates a combobox below (with items based on listbox's selection). Listbox is NOT multi-select. Code runs fine manually, i.e., user opens screen selects from listbox, then can select from combobox.

I now what to open and make selections from another form/screen, Screen #2. I've written code to select the proper item from Screen #2's listbox but this does NOT trigger the listbox's CLICK event for me so the combobox isn't populated so I can then make that selection from Screen #1, also. I've tried setting focus to listbox first, then making selection, but that doesn't work.

QUESTION: Is there code that selects from a listbox in a way that mimics the user clicking the selected item in the listbox?

The alternatives I can think of are:
1) Change Screen #2's listbox code from CLICK to CHANGE event, but I'd rather not.
2) Move CLICK event code to sub-procedure and then call from both listbox CLICK and Screen #2 code
3) Some sendkey string like ENTER?

Would be easier to just mimic the user click, if possible.

With frm_Screen2
'Select item type from listbox
With .LBox_Items

Excel 2010 :: Public Variables From Event Handling Procedure?

Jan 22, 2014

Excel 2010

I am trying to set public variables from an event handling procedure based in a worksheet so I can use that variable in a userform. Nothing I have tried works no matter where I declare the variable. I am using a msgbox to display the variable (a range) but it shows as blank regardless of whether I place the variable in a module, this workbook object or in the sheet object where the event code is placed.

I am sure there is a simple way to transfer variables from the sheet's code (where it must remain as the variable depends on the target cell's position that triggers the event).

Excel 2010 :: Control ENTER And EXIT Event Firing With Frames Active?

Oct 22, 2011

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:


Without FRAME:

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:

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.

Adding A Global Name Inside A Worksheet Event

Apr 23, 2007

Working with named ranges is new to me, and very aggrevating to me too! I am trying to create a Named Range inside a worksheet_change event that is Global. I can create it, but it's always local to the sheet where the change event is happening.

For example:

Names.Add Name:="RandomName", RefersTo:=Target

...creates a local name instead of global one (whereas it would be global if it was created in just a normal subroutine).

Excel 2010 :: VBA Input Box For Range Selection

Sep 6, 2012

Excel 2010. I have a macro, stored in a workbook.

The macro is: collecting data from another opened workbook,processing the data,saving the processed data in yet another workbook.

The workbooks' names it is operating on are hardcoded in the macro. I'm trying to make it more flexible, that is to allow user to specify both source and target workbooks along with the data columns.

The workflow follows:

User opens both source and target workbooks,User opens the workbook with the macro,User runs the macro (with a button for example),Macro prompts the user to select range in the source workbook,Macro "memorizes" the range and the source workbook's name from user's selection,Macro prompts the user to select range in the target workbook,Macro "memorizes" the range and the target workbook's name from user's selection,Macro processes the data.

I found out that this can be achieved with Application.InputBox("Select cell(s)", Type:=8) method. However there are some issues that I was not able to solve playing with the returned value's methods:

The .InputBox defaults to active workbook. I was able to select another opened workbook only with Ctrl+Tab combination, but it will not work with the end users - they are too poor with these tricks. Is there a better, more intuitive way to allow user selecting a workbook?I was not able to get the workbook's name from the .InputBox returned value property. I was trying with .application.caption and .application.activeworkbook.name - none of these worked. They returned name of the workbook with macro, not the one with selected range. How to get the workbook's name from given cells range?

Excel 2010 :: Cell Selection - Set Comma To Appear For All Thousands

Apr 12, 2014

Question 1: how i can automatically add a cell into a formula by just clicking the cell to be added? in other words, say i typed an "=" sign in a cell and want to add a number of cells just by clicking the mouse without having to type the "+" sign after selecting each cell. the formula will just appear as > =A1+B1+C1 by default with each click of the mouse. Is there a default setting that can be set so the plus sign will appear with each click?

Question 2: how can i set a comma to appear for all thousands, (i.e. 1,000) without having to format each cell individually to show commas?? in other words that any spreadsheet i open will always insert comas for numbers larger by a thousand?

Excel 2010 :: How To Cascade Slicer Selection To Other Slicers

May 16, 2014

I've inherited a workbook that has about two dozen or so pivots spread over a few worksheets that source data from an analysis services cube.

There are multiple slicers attached to the various pivot tables and charts

Some of the reports (worksheets) have a business rule that certain filters need to be selected in specific combinations for the data that's returned to make sense.

eg the fact table holding the measures has a billmonth and processmonth that's linked to role playing date dimensions. For the report to reconcile the data correctly both the billmonth and processmonth need to be set to the same value. So if I select 2014-03 on the billmonth slicer, I need to set the processmonth slicer to 2014-03 as well. And there's another pivot on the same worksheet that's linked to a different fact table that's at the year grain, and for that bit to make sense it should be set to 2014.

My task is to simplify this by propagating the billmonth value to the processmonth and the billyear, but I haven't played with vba in about 7 or so years, so I'm very out of practise.

How do I use vba to monitor a slicer for changes? and if it does change how to set another slicer to a dynamic .Value? It can be assumed that the value will always exist in the downstream slicers, if it doesn't the user has bigger problems than an excel error.

I've recorded the macro of me selecting the same date on both slicers but it doesn't give me much to go on

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_DimDateBill.DateHierarchyFinancial1"). _
VisibleSlicerItemsList = Array( _
"[DimDateBill].[DateHierarchyFinancial].[Fin Month].&[201403 FM09]")
ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_DimDateProcess.DateHierarchyFinancial"). _
VisibleSlicerItemsList = Array( _
"[DimDateProcess].[DateHierarchyFinancial].[Fin Month].&[201403 FM09]")

Also it should disallow multiple selects, is there code to monitor that as well?

Excel 2010 :: Link A Cell To Textbox?

May 13, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I am creating a flowchart which will require formulas. Unfortunately the flowchart connectors work best with text boxes rather than the cells. To make this method work, data will be entered into the text-boxes and will be calculated into other text boxes. Basically I need the data I enter into a text box to automatically fill itself into a cell in the background. I know there may be other ways to do this whilst not using text boxes at all, but I will not be using them.

I can fill a text-box from a cell by using F2 on the textbox and then typing =A1 etc, but I am having a hard time going the other way - getting a cell to fill from the value in the text box.
