How can you use VBA code to turn off the annoying "Stop if True" default setting when doing conditional formatting in excel 2007? Right now when you have multiple conditional formatting conditions in a cell, it stops checking and formatting other conditions if one of those conditions is satisfied. I don't why they set this as the default...
I have conditional formatting rules set up using excel 2003. The file is opened in 2007 with the above-mentioned default setting that screws up all my conditional rules.
I have a column of data that I need to add sum total whenever there is a break in data. The row will vary on a daily basic so a set autosum will not work if I am summing 4 numbers today and 5 tomorrow.
This is what I have: the header titled Sizing is in cell C1 and the remaining data is below that, where I show a space below that is where I have an empty cell.
What I need is code to sum where there is a blank cell.
In a userform i have created an textbox. The user types some text in it and after clicking an OK-Button this text must be copied to a cell To allow multiple lines (enter = new line in textbox) i have changed the textbox property EnterKeyBehavior to True. The problem is that after copying this textbox1.text to a cell in see square blocks in the cell.
instead of line1 line2
I use the following code to copy the text into a cell:
Private Sub CommandButtonOK_Click() Dim TextboxText As String TextboxText = TextBox1.Text ActiveCell.Value = TextboxText Unload Me End Sub
how to avoid this  (should be like alt-enter in a cell)
So i was asked to do a spreadsheet for "counting" electrical items from a project. For instance, quantity of cables, cable trays, electrical equipment, etc.
One of the sheets is called "Cables" and is structured in a database form, i mean, the first row contains the name of the columns (fields) and from the second row will be the records (much like a table in Excel).
One of this columns has to be calculated, for example, Qty (B3) * Measured (C3) = Subtotal (D3). If i put the formula in the whole column filling D:D the size of the excel file grows up to 10 mbs. So to keep the size small, I want Excel to introduce this formula only if it can find a value in Qty (B3).
Is liking adding records in Access, the table should grow with each row completed. We cannot use access, it has to be something the team can handle (they know a bit of Word and Excel, nothing else).
Code: Private Sub cmdSearchButton_Click() Dim txtbox As String 'stores lookup value Dim x As Variant 'value for wwid txt box Dim ForeName As String Dim SurName As String Dim wwid As Variant Dim iPosition As Integer
Here is my code, it does a vlookup and if the persons name is not found it will split the text entered into forename and surname but when i try and add
I have a form that has three fields (1. Comments (TEXT), 2. Legacy_Comments (TEXT), 3, Comment date (DATE))
Now my users need to keep adding comments to the comment text box, and when they do it automatically adds the date they entered the comment in the Comment date box. Now my problem is that since they keep adding comments to the comment box, I need to keep track of these comments in the Legacy_Comments (Text box).
For example, the First time a user enters a comment into the (1) comment text box it auto populates the date in the comment date box, and then adds the comment and date to the Legacy_Comment box. the end result is (comment,4/3/2014 now lets say a user needs to add a comment to the comments box tomorrow - I want the legacy_Comment box to then read (comment, 4/3/2014; comment2, 4/4/2014, ...., comment(n),date(n)) OR it can be vice-verse, because I just need to keep track of the comments, I am not worried if the new comments are before or after older (yesterdays / the day before yesterdays comments)
How can I write a VBA code that will always add the new comment to the legacy_comment field, without deleting the comments that were entered previously?
Code: If isnull(me.comment.value) Then Exit Sub ElseIf me.comment.value = true Then me.comment_date.value = date me.legacy_comment.value = me.comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";" me.legacy_comment.value = me.legacy_comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";"
It adds the comment only the first time, but it does not concatenate the string from yesterday to the string to today. I do not care which order the comments are, meaning if I added a comment today it can be before OR after the comment from yesterday.
I need to insert a date modified column to an Excel 2007 workbook I am currently using. The columns range is from A to L, with about a hundred data points. However, I would like to have the date modified cell update only when there are changes to rows F through L, starting with row 3.
I need the code to still function if I add rows, and it would be great if it would also still run if I added columns, but that part is not necessary. I've gotten close by defining a cell name as myCol and using this code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Row < 3 Then Exit Sub
My group is putting "marks" in Excel (2007) work papers & sometimes they may want to add additional marks to those previously added in a selected cell. What I have below actually works, but I just got my VBA book last week & there has to be a better way.
Specifically, I've saved the "target" off in the same worksheet (That can't be good.) and delete it when I'm done writing it back. Can I save the original characters virtually, or to the personal.xlsb.
Code: Sub addMarkInCELL() ' Dim charCount As Integer Dim charStart As Integer Dim rngTarget As String charCount = ActiveCell.Characters.Count
I have a userform with a textbox and would like the user to type inside the textbox which in turn send the text typed to a cell on my spread sheet say sheet 1 cell ref A1. I am writing the following into the control source Sheet1!A1 but the control source does not except this. I am using excel 2007 .
I have a spreadsheet which contains 2 drop down pick lists in Field1 and Field2.
Code: FIELD1 | FIELD2 | FIELD3 -------------------------------------------- In Cell A2, I have this set in Data > Data Validation:
Allow: List Source: =CatList
If the user selects a value from the CatList range, then the drop-down options in Field2 are updated accordingly.
In Cell B2, I have this set in Data > Data Validation:
Allow: List Source: =INDIRECT(A2)
The Ranges are as follows:
Code: Cat1 | Cat2 | Cat3 --------------------------------------------- Cheese | Hat | Square Trees | Cat | Circle Bees | Sat | Triangle Knees | Mat | Rectangle Apologies | Bat | Octagon
I'd really like to be able to add a message into FIELD3, which is based on the value in Cat2
e.g. using pseudocode, something like:
If Field2 value = "Apologies" then put this message in Field3: "This requires approval from A" elseif Field2 value = "Triangle" then put this message in Field3: "This requires approval from XYZ" elseif Feidl2 value = "Bat" then put this message in Field3: "This does not require approval"
Basically this is for an access form, and I need to be able to add a feedback message to field3 based on what's in Field2.
I thought about using the INDIRECT option to add messages but I can't see how I'd do it. Maybe VB would do it, but I don't know it well enough.
I have a few dozen pictures created when a macro runs. They all have unique names. I'd like to add comments to cells, where the cell.value decides which picture to pull. All the examples I've found online show how to do this if you have pictures saved on your hard drive by referencing the file path "c://mydocs/...blahblah/"
Is there a way to reference the pictures I've created/named with my macro?
Here's the snippet of code that creates the pictures and names them:
Code: For i = 2 To Application.CountA(Sheets("Allocation").Rows(1)) Sheets("Allocation").Activate Set rInput = Sheets("Allocation").Range(Cells(1, i), Cells(10, i)) sPicName = "_" & Sheets("Allocation").Cells(1, i) & "_" sSheet = Sheets("Allocation").Cells(3, i) dDate = Sheets("Allocation").Cells(5, i)
Here are some examples that are close to what I'm looking for.

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.
This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.
I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.
I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.
I realize that this is a topic that has been well tread in the forums; I've read many of the responses. Unfortunately even after adapting these responses, my code isn't working as I would hope. I have many textboxes on a userform, and often they can be left without any input from the user. Unfortunately the textboxes serve as the arguments for a function. If the value is zero, the function works as it should. Here is the code I have:
Private Sub txtSalary_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) Dim Salary1 If IsEmpty(Me.txtSalary) Then MsgBox ("It's empty") Val (Me.txtSalary.Text) Me.txtSalary.Value = "0" Else Me.txtSalary = Format(Me.txtSalary, "$0,000") End If
The idea was that when the user left the box, if it was empty it would have a value of 0, but if it had a number, it should be formatted to currency without the decimal point. Unfortunately, the "IsEmpty" line doesn't seem to be working. I tried to just use a simple msgbox to check, but when I tab out of the textbox without typing anything, nothing happens. If sure there must be a simple solution I'm missing.
I have the below code that I am using to find an empty textbox with the name FirstName. All it does is place the cursor in the FirstName text box if the textbox is empty, but doesn't really make it stand out. I was hoping to find a way to color the background of the textbox pink, or have it set up so it would stand out somehow.
Dim x& With Sheets("PLAYERS") For x = 1 To .Cells(Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row If .Cells(x, "C").Value = Me.ComboBox1.Value Then _ Me.TextBox3.Value = .Cells(x, "D").Value Me.TextBox26.Value = .Cells(x, "E").Value
I have the code below to add a text box to a tool bar. My question is can it be a updating text box such as the forms "TextBox1_Change"? I would like it so that as the user changes the text box it runs the Loc_Box sub. Example if "H" is in the text box and the user types "1" then Loc_Box runs, or "H" is deleted it runs, is this possible?
Set TB = CommandBars("Loc Box").Controls. _ ****Add(Type:=msoControlEdit) With TB ****.OnAction = "Loc_Box" ****.Caption = "Loc Box" ****.Width = 100 End With
The following code works fine but I need some assistance on how to add values from a textbox per say. How would I go about adding the value of textbox1 to the code below. .HTMLBody = "<HTML><BODY>Job# –<br>Client Acronym –<br>CSR –<br>Kit(s) –<br><br>Comments –<br><br></BODY>" & Signature
I have a list box in the userform. I would like to add items into ListBox which correspondent with 4 combo box values. If all combo boxes is selected, that would be easy task. However, user might not need to select all combo boxes. If any of the combo boxes empty, my code fails that end up listbox is empty. I could write the code with all of the combinations, but that will be my last choice if there is nothing easier than that. Can I adjust the code such as if the combo box="" then skip then look at the other combo box if that is "" than skip again. If all combos are "" add all the items from the source.
My code is below:
AllStaffLB is listbox StaffSrchCB is combo box StaffSrchCB2 is combo box
I am creating a userform in excel 2010 (64 bit) that is a 14 question survey. I am trying to get a simple datepicker to appear when user clicks or tabs into a designated textbox which I have named TextBoxDate. I would then like the user to select a date and for that date to appear in the dd/mm/yyyy format in the textbox. Should be easy, right?
I have tried downloading several datepickers, most from the open source thread Non-activex Datepicker Calendar Control on this site. But I am unable to successfully tweak the code to get the datepicker to work how I want. I also am not looking for a datepicker that is complex with max and min date ranges etc.
i've got a sample database (attached) with a userform for inputting of data. What i want it to do is automatically generate the next number and add it to textbox "our ref" on the userform. the number is in Col C. This is the code i've tried using the code highlighted in red which doesnt work.
I want to create an excel sheet so that I can price out computer hardware so that I can see what it will cost compared to what we would sell it for I have the basic idea laid out but I'm running into a problem with cells that don't have any information in for pricing. I get a "#DIV/0!" for the formula that i have worked out.
I don't want to change the information in the cells that I have for pricing I just want it to show 0 and call it good. The other isssuse that i'm have at the bottom of the page I'm trying to show the totals for everything.
I did a simple (=F4:F34) to Show the total of all the information in the column but it's showing up "#VALUE!" I know that this is from the earlier error so if I could be shown how to make these errors go away that'd be great the final product that I would like to have is I want to use a macro to transport some of the information to a word document so that I can print it off and show our customers a quote without them being able to see the cost on everything.
Is there a way to select completely empty rows in Excel 2007 (Win 7)? I have found directions for highlighting empty cells (f5, Special, Blanks...), but sometimes the cells selected will be in rows with other filled cells in them so that doesn't really do what I need.
