Flashing Cell With VBA

Oct 12, 2007

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"
Sub StartFlashing()
If Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = 3 Then
Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = x1ColorIndexNone
Range(FR).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
End If
NextFlash = Now + TimeSerial(0, 0, 1)
Application.OnTime NextFlash, "StartFlashing", , True......................

Flashing Text In A Cell

Feb 9, 2007

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.

Make Content Of Cell Flashing?

Mar 14, 2003

I mean to format a cell in a way that it will flash if certain conditions are met. For example : to make C14 to flash if B14>0. Different colour formatting is not enough to catch the "oldies" eyes!

Highlighting Or Flashing Highest Value Cell

Dec 30, 2012

I have % figures in the following cells, E20, G20, I20, K20, L20, F24, H24, J24, G28, I28, H32, F16, J16, G12, I12, H8.

These figures are the result of a formula of other cells, with constantly changing values, therefore the % figures are constantly changing as well.

What I would like to do is highlight the cell with highest % figure, ideally to 'flash', either cell colour or flashing text.

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:

Flashing Cell & Picture Load Additional Code

Jul 27, 2005

At the moment I have two macros. One loads up a background picture into my work sheet
when I start it up, the other two are called ‘StartBlinking’ and

This is the macro code I have to load up the picture:

Sheets("CASHFLOW + FUNDSFLOW").SetBackgroundPicture Filename:= _

What I hope to achieve is:

1. Get the picture to ONLY load up if it actually exists on the G:
drive, otherwise do nothing.

2. If value 1 to 13 is input in Cell C3, run the macro

3. If Cell C3 is left blank again, run the macro StartBlinking.

Controlling Screen Flashing Using LockWindowUpdate

Dec 15, 2008

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?

Hidden Sheets - Flashing Images

Aug 2, 2006

I have written some code to be executed in Sheet1 which copies formats from Sheet1 to Sheet2 and then values from Sheet 3

Sheets("Sheet1"). Range("E4:M9").Copy Sheets("Sheet2").Range ("A1").Offset(9 * i + 3, 1)
Sheets("Sheet3").Range("P90:W93").Copy _
Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Offset(9 * i + 5, 2).PasteSpecial _ Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

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?

Position Flashing Cursor At The End Of String In Textbox

Oct 15, 2013

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 ?

Excel 2010 :: Crash - Ready Calculate Flashing Taskbar When Closing / Opening Userform

Jan 8, 2014

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

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

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;

Excel 2010 :: When Cell Selected Can't Use Arrows To Move To Another Cell While Pointer Is Over The Cell

Apr 18, 2013

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 am using MS Excel 2010.

Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It

Jun 19, 2008

I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.

Problem 1
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:

Tab 1 (Never changes)

Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)

So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column A’s data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column B’s result.

Problem 2

Weekly league rank table that shows position movements week by week


1FredUp 2
2BobNot Moved
3JonDown 2

Can Excel calculate/show the actual movements of league positions?

Send Row Number Of Changed Cell To Cell Where Row Resides In Cell

Apr 26, 2008

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 .
