I originally posted this question with out the code I'm using. I am trying to make a specific cell flash to catch the attention of other dispatchers. The problem is when I we try to close the active page it will automatically open. The only way we can completely close the page is to close Excel completely. Doing this though also closes several other pages that we need to have remaining open.
Public NextFlash As Double
Public Const FR As String = "B3"
If Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = 3 Then
Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = x1ColorIndexNone
Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
NextFlash = Now + TimeSerial(0, 0, 1)
Application.OnTime NextFlash, "StartFlashing", , True......................
This might sound daft, but im just wondering if it is possible to Flash text 2 different colours in a cell. Cell A1 will say - - - Well done. and I want it to flash blue and red, but not use VBA to do it. Can it be done or am I wishful thinking? This would be on Office 97.
I need to get a range of cells to flash when they get close to todays date, I have tried but can't do it, not very good at conditional format or vba, easy step by step if poss, i have sheet if required,
todays date = 11/01/12 (in cell O1 as autodate)
title in cell K7 is date on site
in Cell K8 = 13/01/12 in Cell K9 = 19/02/12 etc....
I would like this cells background to flash if its 2 days from the onsite date
When I return to a sheet by clicking on the tab of the sheet, the sheet is not immediately visible. When the sheet does become visible a cell has a black flashing background. Sometimes, but not always, the flashing cell is the activecell. Through the activate event of the sheet I attempt to make $A$1 the active cell:
I m wondering if it is possible to cause a worksheet tab, within a workbook, to flash? What I have is a check box, that when clicked, opens up a hidden worksheet. What I would like to have happen is once the worksheet is unhidden, the worksheet tab begins to flash to show the user it is now active.
A while back I was assisted with trying to prevent excessive screen flashing...
I was originally using the Application.ScreenUpdating=False method...but it was still a little jumpy... so Richard Schollar (a valued member in our forum) helped me with this code and it seemed to work...
Now I am trying to apply it again to another macro and it is not working so well. The thing I found is that on some people's computers it does work well, but not on mine.
Does anyone know why that is and how I can fix it so it doesn't flash on mine either?
Any way to make a button to blink if by the user form?
What I mean: I got a "UserForm", it got 9 buttons and each of them have a macro (everything works perfectly), but is there a way without affecting the current macro for each button, somehow when pressed chosen me button, it flashes while delivering its intended macro?
Sample: UserForm: in there Button in this button have a macro Sub blqh_blqh hfhglhgd vfdbdfbd End sub ..........â€‹follows another macro to the button flashes................
I have a VBA macro that sort several worksheets during th e processing but the screen flashes it move between worksheets. I would like to be able to just show a messae or have the display stay on the strting worksheet
The code does exactly what I want it to do, but when Sheets 2 and 3 are hidden images of what is being pasted briefly flash up on the screen. Is there a way of avoiding this? The amount of data in the whole sheet is quite large (about 4MB), could it just be that the program is running too slowly?
I have attached macro code, which populates a three page template and clears the contents, so that the process can be repeated. I would like to stream line the macro which populates the template - currently there is alot of screen flickering back and forth between worksheets.
After using Copy/Pastespecial in my macro, when it completes I have the flashing border around the range that was copied, (like you do when you do it manually). What line of code do I need in my macro to make this go away?
I have a choice of 9 command buttons on a form that enter a short string of text into a textbox. Each button enters a different string into the textbox. The string is the prefix to a product serial number. Once the user has clicked the button & entered his preferred prefix I would like the cursor to be flashing after the last character ready for the user to manually type in the remainder of the product serial number. I'm guessing (with my limited ability) that I have to create a function to do this & then call the function when the button is clicked ?
1: Is their anyway I can get rid of the File, Edit, View, etc buttons at the top of the document so everyone that opens it can not see them? and also the save button, the idea is they have to use the button to save the sheet.
2: I have a button on the sheet with a macro that saves the sheet once it has been worked on, the sheet flashes when this button is clicked is there any way I can stop the sheet flashing ?
Excel will hang up as if it's gone into a continuous loop (Although no looping macros are active) when you open or close a user form. The task bar in Excel will flash Ready Calculate. Visual basic reports no code is running but excel either crashes or becomes very unresponsive. I have to exit and reopen excel in order to fix the problem . It also doesn't happen at any one specific point it can vary. I have various VLOOKUPs around the workbook and userforms display the correct information. I use the INDEX formula in the control source of textboxes. I also use the offset formula to make sure DTPICKER displays correctly.
I am using 'Option Explicit' at the start of all my code. I have tried a 3rd party code cleaner. No visual Basic references are MISSING
I need to match data in cell A to cell B and then if they equal I need to copy the adjacent cell C to cell X . How do I set up a macro to do this automatically? I have over 5000 cells to compare and match up.. I have Office 2003.
I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?
For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?
I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;
When I use the mouse pointer to select a cell I can't use the arrow keys to move to another cell while the pointer is over the cell and I can't edit the cell while the pointer is over the cell. If I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal therefore I don't think this is a scroll lock issue.
This issue also happens when I select a tab. If I select a tab and then leave the pointer over the tab I selected then I can't use the arrow keys to move around the worksheet or edit a cell; if I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal.
I have the following range of cells B2:Y3700. I want that when a value from 1 to 9999 is inserted in one cell of the above mentioned range, to copy the row number of that cell in the cell that is located in column Z and row is the number inserted in that cell. For example, if the number "1234" is inserted in one cell from range B2:Y3700, to enter in cell Z1234 the number of the row where is located the respective cell. At same the time is very important to me to not permit to insert the same number in B2:Y3700, so i believe that is need a macro code to check the cell from column z to see if value already exist .
formula to copy a cell to a new cell if the previous cell meets the condition.
i have attached an example work book.
so what im looking for is on sheet 1 there is a table and cell G9 shows Apples. on Sheet 2 is a second table where the information is in slightly different rows.
I want to be able to [When Sheet 2 Column C = Sheet 1 Column G Then Paste Sheet 2 Column D into Sheet 1 Column H (next to Apples)]
Then i would like in Cell J9 to look something like [When Sheet 2 Column C = Sheet 1 Column G Then Paste Sheet 2 Column F into Sheet 1 Column J] and i would like Cell I9 to look something like [When Sheet1 Column J = Sheet 1 Column L Then Paste Sheet 1 Column M into Sheet 1 Column I]
G9 H9 I9 J9 L M <-- hidden C D E F Sheet 1 |Apples| 20 | Hot |Average | Hot | Average Sheet 2 |Apples| 20 | AP | Average
