I have an excel spread sheet and on the last column on the right hand side I have some comment boxes but when I hover over them they pop up to the right of the cell, and then they are off the screen.
Can I alter it to make the comment box pop up to the left side of the cell.
Is it possible to adapt this code to get me the desired results or will it have to be a separate one.
Also i'm not sure if I have the code right because if I run the macro then open a comment box in the (M) column as in the code the comment box is the default size then if I run the macro again once I have the little red tick in the corner of the it changes to what the code says.
I have two sheets with data. I wont excel to look for a value in colum A in sheet 2 the value to look for is defined in colum a in shet 1. If value is found it should insert in sheet one the value that is in the cell next to the found value. The data is not sorted. I have attempted and failed with using different functions.
I have a range selected (A4:C15).I would like to deselect the range and make A4 the active cell. Is this possible without a macro?
With a macro, one could use: Application.Goto Selection.Cells(1)
I generally select a large number of cells and would like to go back to the start cell in the range. I could do it by pressing the left and right arrow keys but is there a shortcut that will allow me to do the same?
how to set up a formula that would count the number of numbers in a column, only if the cells before those cells are blank. In plain English: total the number of occurences in each column, provided the value in cellrow is the first occurence in that row starting at column A. E.G
A B C D John x x Dave x x Kyle x x Bob x x
Count would return under Column A, 1; under Column B, 1; (because row John has a value in AJohn it is ignored), under Column C, 2; under Column D, 0.
I am using Data Validation and I don't want the user to go past a cell without putting in an entry. When I leave the box (ignore blank) unchecked it doesn't do anything after I have protected the document.
I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.
Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.
My current spreadsheet shows text that's aligning just slightly to the left of center. In the Format Cells menu under Alignment, I have selected Center for both Horizontal and Vertical. There is no indent. Orientation is 0 degrees. Text is set to wrap. Merge cells is unchecked. Text direction is Context.
When I double click a cell to change the text, it centers correctly as the cursor blinks. But when I click somewhere else and it stops blinking and allowing me to type in the cell, it aligns slightly to the left of center.
I am looking to remove all blanks from a table I have and move all the data left. Right now the data is by date, and some dates are blank for some players (it is a basketball sheet) and filled for others, but I want to see it by game. So I have what is in the first table below, and I want it to look like what is in the second.
I'm using Excel 2010. When I type 'true' or 'false' in any cell, Excel automatically changes to CAPITAL and Align Centre. I have to use the function 'lower' to change to lower case and manually to align to the left.
I have a spreadsheet which contains 39 columns with a header row. The number of rows varies per spreadsheet. I'm running into a problem with highlighting(painting yellow) cells. Really the problem is selecting the cells to be highlighted. The macro is skipping some of my code completely and in other cases leaving some cells unhighlighted.
1. All blank cells in row AG should be painted yellow.
2. If column AF contains a cell with number 900 or greater, then the cell in AG (same row) should NOT be painted yellow.
3. All blank cells in rows AC and G should be painted yellow. Some spreadsheets may not contain blank cells.
Problem with the VB is not performing the code after the first command. It will highlight MOST of the cells in AG but for some reason it is leaving a few blank ones unhighlighted. The blank ones are usually at the bottom of the rows. I have no idea why it would miss these.
I believe the "ucase" tag is incorrect since its looking for a number but I am not sure what to put in its place and if I use something else should I dim it as ""?
I've attached an excel spreadsheet which contains a sample to this problem. I've also attached what it should look like if my code worked.
my question is how to return blank cell if i have no data inputted in left cell.. or if AH9 is blank or no data inputted AI10 will be blank using this formula.. =IF(AH9<75,"A",IF(AH9<82,"B",IF(AH9<87,"C",IF(AH9<92,"D","E"))))
i need a code that moves down a column and for every empty cell in the column the cell to the left is cleared and then it moves on to the next cell down. the column is not always the same and will start from a selected cell, and the column will contain no more than 5 rows
I have Column A and Column B. Every row in column A is populated, but only some of the rows in column B are populated. I need a formula that copies column A if B is blank. (i.e. If B6 is blank, copy A6). Thoughts?
My question requires me to do a Vlookup question that needs to get the information in the next two cells over from the left most cell. In short I need to put info from two different cells from the same row and look up value into one cell.
In my column B, I have different words like Balance, Notes, Expense, etc. Is there anyway I can look into column B, and if I get the word Expense, then take the number directly to the right of it (from column C) and SUM it? Not sure if it matters, but let's say I want to put it in cell C2. I figure this will allow me to do this like insert, delete rows in the future, but my equation in cell C2 will still add up what I need.
I'm looking for a formula that pulls the text from a cell unti it hits a space. I'm using the formula below but keep getting #VALUE results. B1: =LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1,1)). I know it's not that hard but can't figure it out.
I am running into a seemingly random event upon executing a rather long program in Excel VBA: a square area turns gray in the left of the screen in Excel, making invisible everything under it, and affecting every sheet and workbook open. The only way to get rid of it, so far, has been to restart Excel. I thought it pertained to a faulty Office installation (XP/2002), but then it also happened on another machine (with Excel 2003) where I installed the application.
I have three search boxes in XL , two are search from and to dates and the other is search be ref.
I can currently search by dates and ref but would like to show all records in the specified dates if the ref field is left blank.
I am using the query writer and referencing back to cells in XL. I don't use the wizard or SQL. I have tried many options and think I should be using a OR statement with a wildcard but can't seem to get the result, does the wildcard just show the blank cells in the actual data?
Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.
Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).
What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:
a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice) d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.
Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....
I am trying to count the # of empty cells to the left. I trying to work out how many days since an employee has missed. In this worksheet, a letter is placed in the cell corresponding to the day they missed. And I need to count backwards from a date (say: July 31st) to the last day with a letter in it.
Here's a weird one: I can't get some of my cells to align to center/left/right. Both the buttons on the toolbar and Format->Cells->Alignment won't work. The kicker is that other cells on the same sheet will center/left/right just fine. Is there some kind of formatting protection I inadvertently set?
