Flashing Cell With VBA
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......................

Flashing Text In A Cell
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.
Cell Shows Black Flashing Background?
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:
Flashing Cell & Picture Load Additional Code
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.
Flashing The Date
I have solved many problems with the solutions presented here.
I have multiple workbooks which contains numerous different dates.
and I need to make them flash when the dates are due within one week etc.
I would like to know what kind of command in vba or formula in excel it needs.
Flashing Worksheet Tab
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.
Controlling Screen Flashing Using LockWindowUpdate
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
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("Sheet2").Range("A1").Offset(9 * i + 5, 2).PasteSpecial _ Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
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?
Stop Macro Flashing Screen
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.
Hide Standard Buttons & Stop Work Sheet Flashing..
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 ?
Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It
I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.
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.
Weekly league rank table that shows position movements week by week
Can Excel calculate/show the actual movements of league positions?
Send Row Number Of Changed Cell To Cell Where Row Resides In Cell
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 .
Join Cell Text And 1 Cell Date From Cell With 2 Dates

Workaround For Public Variable Bug: Creates Different Cell Colors Based Upon The Cell Contents
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
Passing Cell References From A Cell's Text To LINEST Function And A Graph
I'm using Excel 2003 and I'm trying to make my LINEST function and the source cells for a scatter graph use the cell range specified in another cell in the document. I figured out that it was simple to do the following:
I250 contains: 10, shows: 10
I251 contains: ="I"&I250, shows I10
But I can't figure out how to do this in a larger function. I've tried a few things but none of them work. Here is an example where I want it to do a LINEST with y values in cells Ja - Jb and x values in cells Ia - Ib (where a and b are integers specified in cells I250 and J250 respectively):
Copy Data From Cell In One Worksheet, Add Text, And Paste To Cell In Another Sheet
I have the following code in another workbook that is used to populate a cell on the same sheet based on input to cells in column 'A'.
Is it possible to modify this for the attached workbook to select a cell with data (numbers) on the Input Data sheet in column 'E', add text to the beginning, ('CG' in this case), and paste the result to the Import Template in the corresponding cell of column 'A'? I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.
Find Last Cell In Range, And Changing Another Cell Based On Offset Text
If i have a range say E12:O12 and want to find the last cell before blank, lets say it finds m12 as the cell with the value before blank. then with m12 it needs to determine weather row 11 in the same column has Text either "S" or "F" if "S" then m12 = t if "F" then m12 offset(1,-1) = t. And just to make things more difficult i need the range E12:O12 to step 2 as well until it gets to E208:O208 .Noting that row 11 never changes and will always have either an "S" Or an "F"
and also t = time()
Cell Referenceing (display The Value In The Cell Offset By X So I Can Bring The Numbers From Sheet1 Over)
Sheet1 is a list of names, then a few columns of numbers.
Sheet2 contains calculations based of the numbers in sheet1.
Each sheet from 2 on is names after the names in sheet1 column A...
A large cell at the top of each sheet contains the formula to display the sheet name:
So what I want to do now is...
in cell, look for the cell in sheet1, and display the value in the cell offset by X so i can bring the numbers from sheet1 over.
In plain english the cell would say like...
"look in sheet1 for "Name" then display the cell next to it"
I know to look in the next sheet its "=Base!B2" if i wanted b2 on sheet base.
I know to use "=OFFSET(Base!B2, , 1, , )" too look at B2 and go right 1 column.
But the issue is i dont want Base!B2.. i want whatever cell in Base column A that has the text that A1 has.
Paste Special Values Of A Formula To A Cell But NOT From A Defined Source Cell
my destination cells will have formulas like:
Everything works fine. But I don't want the destination cells to display the full formula, but the actual Value only

But when the code runs The cursor moves back and forth all the time...
Automatically Update A Protected Cell Based On Contents Of An Unprotected Cell
I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.
Cell 'A1' starts out blank.
Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items.
Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell.
Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell.
The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.
If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date.
If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.
Text Color Change - Cell By Cell Basis - When Budget Is Reached
I'm a business/application consultant for ERP software, and generally pretty solid when it comes to excel. However, I've come across a question for a personal sheet that I can't seem to solve.
In my personal budget worksheet, I'd like to set a budget on a cell-by-cell basis. When the budget is hit, I'd like the text color (or cell color) to change.
I.E. Cell D14 has a budget of $200. When I enter $200 in the cell, the text turns from black to red. I've searched through google with no luck. I have mildly searched this forum, but haven't found my direct answer - I have come pretty close though, in other languages
When A Date Entered On A Specific Cell, Automatically Enter A Text In Other Cell
I have 6 Headings in excel named...
"A" in cell A1, B in B1, "C" in C1, "D" in D1, "E" in E1 and "F" in F1.
There are two projects.
Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.
My Specification follows...
1). Take Prject 1 - Which starts from A...in cell A2 I will keyin "A". When the phase comes to an end I will key in the end date of the phase. As soon as I key in the end date in cell A2 Letter D should automatically appear in the cell D2 and when Phase D comes to an end I will key in the end date in Cell D2 which should automatically keyin F in the cell F2. and is the same case for Project 2.
Run Macro On Double Cell Click If Cell Part Of Named Range
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
Macro: Changing Cell Color Based On Date In Cell
I did a search on this site and found some code I was looking for (see link:
http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...e-in-cell.html - Leith Ross's response code).
The code works perfectly, however, if I save the workbook with a different spreadsheet on top than the spreadsheet referred to in this code, I get an error message: Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed.
I should state that I did change "Private Sub Workbook_Open()" to "Private Sub Auto_Open()".
I assume I need to modify the code but am unsure as to how.
Format Cell With Colour And Boxsurround If Cell = "Clos
It is possible to add something in a spreadsheet VBA to colour a cell Green and put a box surround on it if the cell = "Closed" from A7:V65535
Basically I have four conditions for status of a task and i can only use 3 formats on conditional formatting so i need some code to format the last remaining status type which is "Closed"
Got this part of code to make it the correct colour
.ColorIndex = 4
.Pattern = xlSolid
Macro To Pull Same Cell Range Cell From Many Closed Books
I have many workbooks which all have a summary sheet called summary, and which are all kept in the same folder (although this folder name/filepath may change from year to year).
I want to be able to set up the column headings and then copy the same set of summary information from each book so that it can then be used for analysis. The cells to be copies derive their value from formulae, it is the value that needs to be copied.
I attach a workbook with the format needed and the source cells. The source sheet will be password protected.
I know this is a question that has been raised before and I have searched the forum but not come across a question that is close enough to work from - my VB skills are appalling.
Incorporate Adjacent Cell In Formula W/o Naming Cell Address?
I searched and I keep finding something that's not quite what I'm looking to do so I think I'm missing something really simple.
Let's say that I want each cell in col b to be the sum of 5 plus whatever value is in the cell adjacent to it on the left (col).
I know that you can just write a formula in each cell like...
b1 will be =sum(a1+5)
b2 will be =sum(a2+5)
... but is there a shortcut so that you don't have to write out the actual cell address for each one?
Meaning - is there a predefined name or something that represents the cell to the left or right so you can just use that instead, allowing you to just copy paste the same formula all the way down the column? Something like...
b1 will be =sum(left+5)
b2 will be =sum(left+5)
... where "left" represents whatever value is in the cell to the left of that particular cell?
Macro To Insert Date In Cell When Text Is Inserted In Another Cell
I'm trying to write a macro similar to the one found here: here:http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/macros/checkbox.php.
Rather then use a textbox, I would like the cell to display the date when text is inserted in the cell to the left.
ie. I insert text (the letter 'a') in cell E11, and the date appears in cell F11.
I would also like the macro to do this for a range of cells ie. for E11 to F21, then from G11 to H21, then from I11 to J21, all the way to column IV.
Automatically Shade Cell Dependant Upon Text In Aother Cell
Im writing a spreadsheet that will act as a hotel room booking diary. There will be 52 sheets (representing each week of the year) and each sheet will therefore represent one week
Each sheet will look at operate the same. Running horizontally will be the days of the week and running vertically will be each of the bedrooms. There are 22 bedrooms in total and each room will have 12 cells allotted to it for each day - lets call this a 'block' and presume that the first block runs from C10 to c21. The final of these cells C21 will have a validation and the user can select 'PAID' 'TO PAY' or 'INVOICED'
If the user selects 'PAID' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade GREEN
If the user selects 'TO PAY' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade RED
If the user selects 'INVOICE' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade YELLOW
