I have a column with company names, with repeats, and I am trying to filter out the repeat entries and fill a combo box with these entries. I also want the box to update every time I add a new company to the list that isn't a repeat of one already on the list.
I have a problem where a combo box in a form won't populate from the VBA code in the initialise routine. I've tried a couple of difference methods for populating the combo box without success. The code I have is:
VB: Option Explicit Sub NewTender() Application.ScreenUpdating = False
I tried the excel file uploaded by Norie but it only displayed "Is". Are there any settings I need to modify to allow the add item property to work?
In my workbook i have worksheets that are named 01-Jan-2008,15-jan-2008,30-jan-2008...and i have almost 50 for each year.from 2007 to 2009. I have created a userform where i have a Year combobox with values 2007,2008,2009 and an ok button then in the same form, i have a listbox and an Ok button and a back button.
i want the user to be able to pick the Year from the combobox. once he specifies the year, the worksheets corresponding to that year should appear in the listbox...instead of populating it with all the 100+ wksheets i want the search narrowed down.
I have a combo box (from the Control Toolbox toolbar). I like this to be populated with the contents of column A. however, in column A there can be duplicates. I obviously don't wan't any duplicates in the combobox.
I have a list of insurance companies as column headers (B1:U1) and a list of what types of insurance they sell as row headers (A2:A6). Within the table, there is a "O" if they sell that type of insurance, and blank if they do not sell the insurance.
My first combo box is the list of insurance companies. I want my second combo box to be populated with only the types of insurance that particular company sells.
I have workbook "Invoice" which has one Combobox. This Combobox1 should takes its data from another workbook /closed/ called Firms. I need it to be closed. What code i should write and where, so that when i add new firm and close the workbook Firms, so that the new value will be added to the combobox1?
I've created a user form (click button on 'main page' to display). Combo Box called 'Last name' gets populated with all second names from the sheet 'Staff'
When a user selects a second name from the drop down list, I would like excel to automatically update the list box 'First Name'. Also, If a user changes the first name or Last Name, this should be saved
I have a combo box on a form that is linked to a column of values allowing pre-emptive typing, or selection via a drop down. This works perfectly with one exception - each item shows up multiple times.
Is there any way of getting around this? the only way I can think of offhand would be to link it to a seperate table which is populated on a semi regular basis via another VB process? I would have thought this would have been a fairly common question but haven't been able to find anything on this board or others as yet.
I have a combo box, from the control toolbar, that I have populated with a named range in the properties of the combo box. The items in the named range vary when an earlier combo box is selected. There are always at least 2 values populated in the named range, but can be as many as 22 values. What happens is when there are only 2 items in that range, the drop down list from the combo box shows 20 blank lines! I have been searching for how to "ignore empty cells" in this range, but cannot find it. The empty cells are always before and/or after the populated cells, if that helps. The range is updated via VBA, not formulas, if that is helpful as well.
I have a worksheet in which i have a set of data similar to the following (i have used colons as delimiters in this example).........
Basically what i want is 2 combo boxes. The first combo bow will allow you to select the phone type (e.g. Motorola PEBL, Motorola RAZR etc etc). The second combo box will have a list of items which match up to the value selected in the first combo box. Once the item has been selected from the 2nd combo box then the relevant matching data will be shown in a group of cells on the worksheet on which the combo boxes reside.
I know that this could be done by using the data validation feature if my data were laid out in a different way however it is not possible for me to re-lay out all the data in my worksheet. I have been told that there my problem copuld be potentially solved by using Excel VB but unfortanately my VB skills are quite weak.
I have a worksheet in which Col. A contains the names of London boroughs and col. B contains the name of each Ward in that borough. I'd like to create a list (or combo) box showing all the London boroughs, and a second list (or combo) box which will show all the Wards for the Borough selected in the London list (combo) box. I'd also like the option to be able to select all the Wards for the borough selected so that they can be used in a chartgraph.
I created a series of combo boxes to accept values from the user. These values are intended to be used to build the name of a file they want to see. I tried to set whatever gets selected in each of the combo boxes equal to a distinct variable and inserted each variable into the file path at the appropriate point. I then created a variable for the file path and inserted the file path variable into code that opens that file, copies a particular worksheet, and pastes it into a new sheet in the “master” (the one with the form) workbook and labels it according to what it was named before.
The problem I’m having is that Excel says it doesn’t recognize the file path I’ve given it. Judging from the file path it quotes in the message, it’s not seeing my variables (only the part of the file path I entered in quotes) and then, later when I “debug” it says the variables are not defined. I’m wondering if there is more to defining a variable than what I’ve done. On the form page of code, I declared the following variables: The UserForm Code
Option Explicit Public strPerformBySubtask As String Public strPerformBySubelement As String Public strPeriod As String Public strMonth As String
I populated each combo box ok and remembered to call the sub procedures below, show the form, hide the form, et al. I think the problem might be in the sub procedures below that I thought would define the variables by setting the respective combo box output equal to a distinct variable I could use in the file path:...........................
I have 4 combo boxes that allow me to make selection from pivot tables. As you know in the pivot table there's the "All Selection" which does not exist in combo boxes (I think), so I created a macro to reset all the pivot tables with the "All" option selected in all of them. However the values in the combo boxes are not changing.
Using two Combo Boxes, I am trying to create an drop down outline form input sheet.
What it does is if you select the first selection in the combo box 1, then it hides certain rows, and deletes certain cells. If you select the second option in the combo box 1, it shows another combo box (2) which has another list of categories.
When I select the option 2 on the combo box 1, it unhides a bunch of rows, and activates combo box 2. However, when I try to select categories on combo box 2, each time it tries to hide/unhide rows I get this message "Unable to set the hidden property of the range class." I have no idea whats going on.
I have an activeX combo-box that selects from different pieces of equipment that we supply. Based on that selection, I require ranges from the same page that the combo-box is on to either hide or unhide. Also, I require different tabs to become visible or hidden based on that same selection. So far so good - I have code that does this, and it appears to work without glitch.
Where the problem arises, is in one of the ranges that is unhidden when a particular piece of equipment is selected there is another combo-box that I would like to use (the number of said pieces of equipment to supply) to further hide/unhide additional ranges on the same page, and also hide/unhide certain tabs as well.
When I make a selection from combo-box 1, all works as planned, but when I change the state of combo-box 2, even with no associated coding referring to it, I cannot change combo-box 1 again without getting Error 1004 "Unable to get the Hidden property of the range class".
None of the sheets in the workbook are protected.
I would sincerely appreciate any help/code that could circumvent this error.
I've built the code for a Template form for data entry of a survey. Through Control Toolbox I've created the form and used several textboxes, option buttons, checkboxes and COMBO boxes this one in turn being my trouble. - Sheet one is called "Data" (this is the place where all inserted information is going to be stored - Sheet two: "Variables" (here is where I keep the required values for the como boxes - inserted manually apriorely... Question: What is the code to assing to the combo boxes in order to have the values from the sheet "Variables" of the range A1:A4 - use the comboboxq2 for referee, I'll do the others P.S. see the code up to now:
Private Sub CommandButtonN_Click() Dim eRow As Long Dim ws As Worksheet Dim inf As WorksheetFunction
Set ws = Worksheets("Data") Set ws = Worksheets("Variables")
' Find first empty row in database survey eRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row ................
I have many sheets which I am using the advanced filter to filter the data to a single summary sheet. Everthing works great with one exception. I have cell comments added with relevent info to to cell values. When the advanced filter is performed the cell comments are not transfered to the summary sheet with the cell values. Is there a method to filter the data to another sheet and keep the comments?
Col A( Data) Col B ( Invoice Description) Col C( Result)
I have date and Invoice description column filled with data, I need to filter Column B> custom filter> contains > "Dup" and enter value as "Twice" in Column C. again i customer filter> contains > " Canteen" then enter value in Column C as "Tea" similarly i have 45 conditions and the number of rows are not fixed, I would appreciate very much if someone could help me to build a code with case function i can add all those conditions: ....
I have 4 combo boxes with selectable options and several cells for inputting data into. I'm looking to create a reset button that returns combo box values back to the first one in the list and clears all cells at the same time. I've figured out the cell reset as follows;
Within a userform, I want to populate five combo boxes and with the values of 1 - 10. I looked through several excel websites and found several solutions. However, I could not figure out how to adopt their solutions to my specific case.
My naming convention for the combo boxes are: cmboPeriod1, cmboPeriod2, ... , cmboPeriod5.
I know my with statement is incorrect. I know the compiler will automatically think 'cmboPeriod' is a variable. I just don't know how to get it 'cmboPeriod & j' to do what I really intend for it to do.
