Follow Hyperlink, Then Do Something Else

Nov 13, 2009

I have hyperlinks set up in a spreadsheet. I want something to happen once I click the hyperlink, like go to another cell, color the cell, put a value in it. Whatever. I just can't figure out how to do anything like that. Is there VBA that could determine if the active cell hyperlink has been clicked? Like by checking the text color maybe or something like that? Let's say for simplicity sake, I just want to put a 1 in the cell next to the cell with the hyperlink I just clicked.

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation To Hyperlink Won't Follow Link

Aug 22, 2013

I have a worksheet with several data validation dropdowns that each link to a series of hyperlinks. When you click the dropdown and select the hyperlink, it opens up that particular file. All of these work, except for one of the dropdowns. Even though I can see and select the names, the link is NOT activated.

Is there some obscure excel feature that I am not aware of that is preventing this one from working? Why would this be?

Follow Up To Using COUNT, But Now With Interupted Cells

Jan 12, 2009

A1/A2 is Monday, A3/A4 is Tuesday, A5/A6 is Wednesday, A7/A8 is Thursday, A9/A10 is Friday, A11/A12 is Saturday, A13/A14 is Sunday. A15/A16 os Totals. Each of the two cells are merged to hold the heading.
B1 is Plan, B2 is Actual, B3 is Plan, B4 is Actual, B5 is Plan, B6 is actual and so on.

Here is the problem:
The formula suggested was =SUM(A2:G2)/COUNT(A2:G2) which was fine when I only had the one column for "Plan", but now I have added a second column for "Actual" next to each "Plan" but I still need a formula that will add every second cell and average it out allowing for the odd time that one of the cells could contain text indicating a holiday and therefor be one less day with data and require to be divided by 6 instead of 7 for example to get the average.

Creating Patterns For Auto Fill To Follow?

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to create an auto fill pattern to match B4-M4 then repeat with B5-M5 and continue to 350.

So for example, I'd like to manually enter "B4,C4,D4,E4,F4,G4,H4,I4,J4,K4,L4,M4,B5,C5,D5,E5,F5,G5,H5,I5,J5,K5,L5,M5" into column A and drag the auto fill box down until I've repeated the pattern to match all the way to M350.

Is this possible? I tried just entering the pattern as I've posted and dragging the auto fill down, but it doesn't fill the numbers properly and ends up with a strange pattern.

Making Spacebar Follow A Keystroke Pattern????? Add-in???

Dec 7, 2006

I am using a bar code gun to enter numbers. There are two bar codes on each item that I am scanning requiring two columns for each item. Right now I squeeze the trigger and the number pops up into the currently active cell. Then I use the arrow key to move over one cell and squeeze the trigger for the next number. Then Down arrow following with a left arrow to move the highlighted cell down one line back to the first column. Kind of inefficient because although repetitive there is room for errors on my part.

Is there a way to make it that every time I press the space bar or some other key that excel highlights a cell following my desired pattern? At least for the time that I am using the bar code gun? Making it so pressing the space bar would advance the selected cell over, then down and left, then over, then down and left, alternating with each press following that pattern ad infinitum. I have to scan hundreds of these babies.

Would this be difficult? Iím not the programming type. Any help would be greatly appreciated. At least I no longer have to manually type each number in. That was a real bummer.

Macro To Hyperlink

Jul 29, 2008

I have a hyperlink generated from a vlookup that is generated from the result of a combo box click, so the reference in the hyperlink cell will change to whatever sheet the vlookup dictates.

Then I have a macro assigned to a button ( Called 'Go' ) that when pressed clicks on the hyperlink and takes me to that corresponding sheet.

When I recorded the macro, it clicked on the hyperlink cell when it was hyperlinking to let's say Sheet 'April', but if I click on let's say September, in the combo box, then of course the hyperlink now links to the September sheet, but if I click the 'Go' button with the macro attached, it still takes me to 'April'.

surely, the macro simply follows the steps I recorded and therefore should now be clicking on the hyperlink that now says 'September'. Surely, the macro shouldn't REMEMBER that it originally clicked on 'April'.

Macro & Hyperlink

Mar 17, 2007

I have a workbook with over 40, identically formated, sheets. Each sheet has 96 pages. One page for each roll of carpet. To hunt for the next blank page to use, is time consuming.


On each sheet, Range B207:B303, I have IF formulas that will display the carpet ID number for each page, if one is present, or the cell remains blank. In Range C207:C303, I have Hyperlinks to the pages on the sheet.

I need a macro that will search the Range in column B for the first blank cell, then automatically use the Hyperlink next it in column C. Then I can assign the macro to a button, copy and past the button on all 40 sheets. With one click of the button, I will instantly be taken to the page availabel for data entry on that sheet.

Addition Of Hyperlink To Macro

Jan 16, 2013

I have a macro that basically captures all of the errors in my spreadsheet and summarizes them under 3 columns (Value in Cell, Sheet, Cell) so that I can quickly identify the error message as well as it's location. I wanted to take it a set further and add a hyperlink for each error so that the user can quickly go to the error location to investigate. I really don't care where the hyperlink is located as far as which 3 columns.


curRow = ActiveCell.Row + 3

Hyperlink Does Not Cause 'worksheet_activate' Macro To Run

Nov 21, 2006

I have the following
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

updateall = MsgBox("Do you want to update the previous balance?", vbYesNo)
If updateall = vbYes Then
' clear previous payments
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
' update previous balance
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Now, this works just fine if the user clicks the sheet itself. However, generally they are accessing sheets via hyperlinks, which do not seem to activate this code. Is there a better/different way to ensure when the user gets to a sheet via hyperlink, they still see the msgbox?[/b]
