Filling A Combo Box With Data From A Worksheet

Nov 21, 2006

I'm attempting to make a simple userform that inputs data onto an existing worksheet. I have the userform but would like to use a combo box to choose a "category" item of data, however I dont know what the categories are! I would like the combo box to, somehow, look at the spreadsheet and read off the already entered categories and offer those as choices.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

Is there a simple way to fill the combo box (using the form initialize I assume) with the existing categories?

Filling Combo Box With Contents Of A Column

Jun 27, 2007

Is there a way that I can make a macro that populates ComboBox1 of sheet 1 with the values in the B column, where the number of elements in the B column might be any value?

For example, if there are values in B2, B4, and B8, I want ComboBox1 to show those three values.

Filling A Worksheet With Data From Many External Files

Sep 11, 2009

I'd be very grateful if s.o. help me find solution for the following task:

I want to fill certain worksheet with data from external .tsv files. The .tsv files are with a almost a common name (something_date.tsv), located in folders for each month.

What I'm usually doing and want to automate:

- I'm opening the first .tsv file from the monthly folder;

- Creating AutoFilter on the first row;

- Selecting a custom criteria from the AutoFilter;

- Copying the cells matching this AutoFilter criteria;

- Pasting in a predefined worksheet (with AutoFilter on first row);

*All of the copied cells are not being altered in the predefined worksheet, i.e. the first rows of the .tsv file and the worksheet are the same.

- Doing exactly the same with the next file in the monthly folder (but pasting below the already copied cells in the workbook).

- Etc.;

- Etc.;

Combo Box On Protected Worksheet

Nov 16, 2006

I've built a workbook using Excel 2000 that uses several combo boxes. When I try to protect the workbook the combo boxes become locked, even when I have done FORMAT CONTROL / PROTECTION and unticked the LOCKED box. Is this normal?. I also have data validation cells and they work fine if I unlock them and Protect the workbook. As a result, I am thinking of converting the combo boxes to data validation cells, but should I even need to do this

Combo Box Macro In Worksheet Doesn't Run Automatically

Apr 2, 2007

I have a combo box in a worksheet with a macro written for it that works fine but when I open the worksheet it doesn't run automatically, I have to find the macro and tell it to run.

How can I get it to run as soon as the worksheet is opened

Here is the code for the macro

Private Sub combobox()

ComboBox1.AddItem "Mit Rekuperator"
ComboBox1.AddItem "Ohne Rekuperator"

End Sub

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()

Run "PinchInternHeatExchanger"
Select Case ComboBox1.Text
Case "Mit Rekuperator"
ActiveSheet.Range("I62") = Worksheets("uorc").Range("L99")
Case "Ohne Rekuperator"
ActiveSheet.Range("I62") = Worksheets("uorc").Range("E11")
End Select
Run "PinchPoint"
End Sub

User Form - Delete Row On Worksheet Via Combo Box?

Jun 16, 2006

I am trying to figure out how to delete a row on a worksheet via a VBA User Form. I currently have a User Form with a Combo Box that is populated by cells in a named range ("PickCategory...") on a worksheet... I am populating thsi box using this

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
ComboBox1.List = Worksheets("data").Range("PickCategory...").Value
End Sub

First off, I want to include a lable that will display the contents of the cell to the right of the currently selected entry of the combobox on a label (or textbox). So, whatever entry you select in the combo box, the corredponding value (to the right of it on the worksheet) will appear in the text/label
box. Is there something similar to the VLOOKUP that will work in VBA?

Also, what I want to be able to do is to allow the user to select one of the entries from the combo box (which is already working) and then be able to delete the row of that entry on the worksheet. So, the user selects an entry from the combo box and then clicks a "Delete" command button to delete the row of that entry on the worksheet...

Automatically Filling In Data?

Jul 9, 2014

I'm simply inputting zeroes and ones down Column A. Basically, I either put a "0" or a "1" in A1, then A2, then A3, etc. However, I want to create a Macro that allows me to simply type in a string of 1's and 0's and it automatically takes each 1 and 0 and fills it in down the column. This website has the basic idea (Automatically Moving from Cell to Cell when Entering Data (Microsoft Excel)) but I need only one number per cell and for it to move down the column, not across the row. Here's what I have so far:

Dim str As String
Dim x As Integer
Dim y As Integer
str = InputBox("Enter string")
y = 0
For x = 1 To Len(str) Step 4
ActiveCell.Offset(y, 0) = "'" & Mid(str, x, 4)
y = y + 1
End Sub

*I can't get it to only break down into one number per cell down Column A. I think the Mid function or something needs to change.

Automatically Filling Like Data

Jun 21, 2009

Here's the outline of my problem...I'm building a directory of hedge fund contacts and need help in cleaning data and automating the entry of fields that will remain the same. I have one workbook with 2 pages... One is for the Companies and the other is for the contacts that work at those companies.

ex. Company #551 is 1794 Management - on this page we have fields for address, floor, city, state, zip, phone, fax and website.

on worksheet 2 is where the contacts are kept... the identifier is #551... on the contacts page all contacts under a specific company number will correspond to that company.

Here's where it gets tricky.... for the contacts the addresses are all formatted differently - first I'd like to sort by management co and address and have excel copy the first listed address format and copy this to the other contacts for that company.... when the formula reaches the next contact with company #552 it will look for the new first address and use this one for all that companies contacts.

after the formula finishes the fomating I'd like the sheet to become intuitive( dont know if this can be done but what I'm looking for is say when I add a new row and enter #551 as a company and enter the new first name, last name, and job title - if the excel sheet noticing that all contacts under that format have the same address, phone, fax, company name etc...

Filling Data Depending On Zip Code

May 21, 2014

I am working with monsterous excel sheets (named Data) and need to a column that is governed by the ZIP. I have a sheet named Source in my excel folder with all the matching information next to the excel sheet. The column my zip codes in Data starts on J6 to J290 and the zip codes in Source are from A2 to A2671. The information I am trying to pull from Source to Data are names and branches located in Source from B2:E2671.

What function will auto fill the columns with the correct information. If it can only be done by putting a function into each column, that is not a problem

VBA And Macros For Filling Data And Printing

Aug 6, 2014

As you can see, I have 2 worksheets. I want that all entries in columns B,D,E and F automaticly fill in in multiple tables in sheet2. Also, if possible that macro creates tables (for example: if I have 100 rows, I want to extract 100 separetly values from column B,D,E and F and to enable automatic creation for new table - for 101 entry )

here is the dropbox link of the file:

HTML Code: 


So, I want when I click on the button I want to automaticly import all mentioned values into sheet 2 (I have marked with RED where to put values from which column). In this example, I expect, when I clik on Print all tables button, to print 7 tables in sheet2. In sheet2 I have 2 tables as you can see.

Filling Data In Non-sequential Rows

Jan 23, 2014

I have a peptide sequence that is 4500 amino acids long. I have the numbers 1 - 4500 in column A and the corresponding letter code for the amino acid in that position in column B. I have done a bunch of other calculations and isolated small series of amino acids within the entire sequence (example: positions 25-42, 153-166, 381-297, etc).
I would like to fill column C with either a blank space or, if it is in one of the selected series, the letter code again. So that the first 24 rows of column C would be blank but rows 25-42 would mirror the letter shown in B. Then blank spaces again until we reach row 153, etc.

I've used a vlookup to paste the letters with the chosen parts of the sequence, but now I want to space them out along the entire 4500 so that I can see if there are overlapping areas between several sets of criteria for choosing series (these would go in columns D, E, etc).

Automatically Filling In Data From Another Place

Jul 12, 2006

I have previously used an Excel file - created by someone else - which had pre-entered data. It was set up in such a way that if I typed a person's ID number into a cell, their name popped into the following cell. I know that the names and IDs were pre-entered somewhere else - in another sheet? In a file linked some other way?

What is this called? How do I do it? I want to end up with a file where I can type a department code into one column and have the department NAME pop up in the following column. I am mostly doing this as a time- saving measure when completing long lists of supplies being distributed to different departments (long story.) If anyone can even tell me what this is called, so I can look it up correctly, that would be... sublime.

Data Validation And Auto Filling Cells

Sep 26, 2009

Starting to struggle a bit here. Trying to create a user form, with help from this website I was able to create 2 dropdown lists based on data validation and information from another sheet in the same workbook. I have one cell B7 that uses data validation and sheet "Eq List" to create a drop down list of departments that the user can select from. Once B7 is filled in, it creates the 2nd dropdown list in B9 so the user can pick "Equip Desc".

Where I am trying to fill B11 which should automatically give me back the Mach ID that is related to B7 & B9. Am I going about this the right way? I have ttached a sample file to make it easier to understand.

Filling Column Data Based On Condition

Nov 20, 2012

I have an excel sheet with 2 tabs. 1st tab provides the data for downtime of a manufacturing line. The last column (shift) is blank and needs to be filled based in shift schedule in tab2

On the 2nd tab I have the shift schedule, which tell which shift is working on particular days

7:00am- 7:00 pm
7:00pm - 7.00am

Shift A
Shift C

[Code] ........

Is it possible to write a macros that will look at the Date and time from tab 1 and assign the correct shift number in the shift column. For example the 1st row of tab 1 reads (Month=Feb, Date = 3:55:59 AM) so according to shift schedule it would fill C shift.

I have lots of data and to assign every event to shift # manually is not possible. So i wanted to know if there is a macros i can use to make life easier and learn at the same time

Mar 31, 2014

I've set myself a project to try and automate some repetitive filling in of word documents and would like a point in the right direction. I've done some research on the MSDN and some sites on the web. The way I was thinking of doing it would be,

make a template with either Fields or Bookmarks (which would be best?) for each piece of data on the paper work.Put the repeated data into an excel sheet (with a button for the macro to be assigned to).

write some VB script that will, define and "label" the data in the XL sheetopen the word templateenter the data into each Field/BookmarkSave as a new file in a "New" folder (name of file and folder taken from the Data)open the next template and repeat.

would this be the best way of approaching this problem?Whats the best way of defining points in a word template, Fields, Bookmarks?what objects would I need to use to rename the folder?
