I have been tasked with overhauling some simple inventory records that are currently being tracked via multiple spreadsheets and in multiple formats over various years. Thus far I have combined the data into two simple sheets (1 & 2) of the same Excel workbook. The first is just the basic listing of current inventory and locations. The second is a record listing various shipments into and out of the company location as a history log. I'm going to be continually trying to clean up the data and make things easier for the staff. The shipping history/log (Sheet 2) contains basic information in columns that include the serial numbers of the items shipped, which correspond to the S/N's in the global list columns within the inventory sheet(1). I would like to find a way to set up where a column in the inventory creates upon click (or have a maco button with the ability to) a popup which will display the history of the current rows serial number. In effect, list all rows in the second sheet with corresponding serial number or as a reverse strategy; filter out the rows that do not have the same S/N listed in one of its columns.
A piece of inventory comes in and is logged into the global inventory sheet (1) with Serial # ks1254. Likewise the shipping sheet (2) has the shipping information and document info logged with the same serial # listed. This is item has arrived and been shipped out multiple times, and occasionally the history of this item is requested. I have a column set aside in sheet 1, that i would like to act as a trigger for the above request. So if I filter and find the mention item, I would like the trigger to go and select out only the rows in sheet 2 that correspond to the S/N of the item in question. This can be presented as a pop up tab, a small window, even as a new sheet altogether I suppose. I guess I'm using Excel 2007, have a very dated limited VB skill set, so just hoping for some direction and steps.
Upon workbook open I have specified that I need a specific sheet & cell selected - so that the user can start typing as soon as the sheet is activated.
The cell is highlighted but I can not type into it unless I manually re-select it with the mouse or keyboard. Below is what i have attempted as well as a few other experiments. I even tried using the same code on sheets("ENTRY") using Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() - which works great as long as the workbook is already open but again not when freshly opening workbook -
Private Sub Workbook_Open() '==================== Sheets("ENTRY").Select If Range("E2") "" Then Range("F11").Select Else Range("E2").Select 'Range("E2").Activate 'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "test" End If End Sub
I am attempting to use the code below to activate a sheet whose name is contained in a variable. The line in Bold gives me a "Subscript out of range" error even though the variables seam correct in the debugger.
Code: Private Sub GetFromArchive_Click() Dim wkb As Workbook Dim strPath As String: strPath = "M:EfpDocsArchivesESI Processing Log Master Archive.xls" Dim lngListItem As Long, lngSelected As Long Dim varSheets() As String
I have a workbook containing multiple sheets of data. I have a macro to analyze this data but want to add a popup menu with a dropdown list of all sheets in the workbook. The idea is to have the macro prompt me to select which sheet to continue running on. I can't remember how to create an input box with a dropdown menu.
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.
I am in need of a macro. I have a column with Image No.s around 900. What i want is as soon as i click on a image No. in a cell, the image has to pop up in excel itself(Not in particular cell). The images are in separate folder in the same directory. I have to view the images only(not inserting). Just Pop up the image and as soon as i click on next image no. macro has to remove the old image and in that place new image has to pop up.
I am writing code in Excel VBA and trying to control power-point. at the end there is message-box pop up. Everything runs fine.
But at the end I have go bottom windows bar and click on the excel file then message box comes up, otherwise excel tag keeps blinking at the bottom. I want to add something to code so message box in excel file is pop-up automatically without me clicking on excel file.
How to use an Excel worksheet I have, so I decided to make a button with a macro, which when clicked a kind of message box pops up and you can read the tutorial. When you are done you just press ok and the pop up window closes.
I know about vba I just have to use msgbox, keep on adding lines with the text and that's it! But after many attempts I found out that it ain't that easy.
So I made something like this:
but at a point I got this error: "Too many lines continuations".
I wanna make something that looks a bit like this: p69pxC8.jpg
But way simpler, with my text, a scroll bar to roll up and down to read and an ok button at the end. I don't need special text with hyperlinks or anything at all, plain text does the job.
It just now crossed my mind, would it be viable to also add a "Print" button next to the "Ok" button in the pop up windows with the tutorial, so when the "Print" button is clicked, the tutorial is printed?
When I copy a cell with CTRL-C and paste elsewhere, a small clipboard pop-up appears to give paste options. The pop-up is the size of an average 'starter' cell. I find it a nuisance as it always covers a cell I might want to paste into, but I cannot see that cell anymore because of the pop-up. How can I get rid of the pop-up?
I have a worksheet that contains two basic columns of data, A and B. What I would like to do is based on the value in column A, I would like to copy the contents of column B to a textfile (preserving the basic line structure and hopefully without any extra characters like quotation marks attached). So for all the values in column A = 'Account', Id like to take all the corresponding values in Column E (for example) and save them to the same file, preferably where the filename itself as 'Account.xyz'. And I would like to do this for all unique values in Column A, that is do it for 'Account' and 'AccountPrivilege' etc. Note Column A is essentially presorted alphabetically already. There are actually 1000s of rows with hundreds of unique A values so Id like to find a way to automate this process.
I'm trying to create a formula that takes from "Manual" Sheet the number from colume G2 and multiply it by the percentage in sheet "AllocationRule".
My formula currently is =Manual!$G$2*AllocationRule!$B5.
What needs to happen is that the total number in "Manual" needs to be distributed evenly in 4 rows by the percentages allocated in "AllocationRule".
Right now I can't copy my formula over to the sheet because the "AllocationRule" should stop at B5 and not go further and the G2 from "Manual" should not change for the percentage allocation but should change to the next row for the next month.
And then after I've done the calculation I want the LOB in "AllocationRule" to be displayed in the LOB in "H1913_H1914" but I'm not sure what formula to use.
I would like a macro that will go to a fixed sheet, copy the format, go back to the previous sheet and paste the format. My problems arise going back to the previously activated sheet rather than just a fixed sheet.
