Force Text To Uppercase In Active Cells

Jan 28, 2009

To ensure correct data entry, I need to ensure that the filled cells in a column are always in Uppercase for example, irrespective of whether they are typed in upper or lower case.

I have found the following code, which seems to work quite well, even though I have the impression that it slowed my workbook down slightly.

Force New Active Cell When Maximum Number Of Characters Is Reached

Jan 16, 2008

We have a form that requires descriptive comments to be entered into several rows of merged cells. My goal is to have the form be able to automatically dropped down to the next row of merged cells when the current row of merged cells reaches a maximum number of characters.

And finally, the last row of merged cells would not allow any more characters than the maximum assigned but not advance to another cell automatically.

The rows I am working with specifically are:
Merged Cells F23:R23; A24:R24; A25:R25; A26:R26;...A29:R29

Add Space To Each Uppercase Letter In Text

Jan 11, 2008

I import a CSV file into Excel where the column title row has column titles that are just one long text string, without any spacing between the words. For example:

I would like a method (formula or macro) that would add a space-character before each uppercase letter (that's not the first letter in the string or an uppercase letter that directly follows another upper case letter). Thus:
CompanySiteDescription becomes Company Site Description
CompanySiteExternalSystemID becomes Company Site External System ID
IssueNumber becomes Issue Number

Force Imported Text Into Formula

Mar 15, 2009

I have a text file I am importing and using text-to-colums.

Some of the text is "+TOL" "-TOL" and when excel converts to columns it is forcing the text to a formula "=+Tol" "=-Tol" giving me #NAME? in those cells.

I can format the cells as text, which is fine for now since I'm using VBA, but if I need to use any formulas then I'm SOL...

How To Force TEXT To Return Date In English

Feb 6, 2014

I have a formula as follows:

Where cell A1 contains a date, say 01/01/2014.

For me this returns "Jan 14." However, I have a colleague using a Spanish version of Windows/Excel and therefore it displays this in Spanish as "ene 14."

How can I force the formula to return the English spelling, Jan 14?

Force SaveAs As Cell Text & Date

Jun 7, 2007

I have a customised excel woorkbook that will be distributed to several locations with different computere systems, etc. I wanted to keep some convention with the naming, so I've put in a saveas routine to open the saveas dialog and change the default name. The user can then select the directory location and save the file.

Here's the
Sub Saveas_routine()
Dim strName As String

On Error Goto InvalidName
strName = "E-RAMP " & Sheet1.Range("A1") & Format(Now, " dd-mmm-yyyy") & ".xls"
Application.GetSaveAsFilename (strName)
Exit Sub

InvalidName: MsgBox "The text: " & strName & " is not a valid file name.", vbCritical, "E-RAMP"
End Sub

The problem is, when the save button is pressed in the saveas dialog, the dialog disappears and the the workbook doesn't save.

Force Text To Capital/Upper Case

Aug 29, 2007

Is it possible to make a spreadsheet so that everything that is typed into it is in CAPITALS? I have a need for that for a spreadsheet that I am using at work, but I remembered that in the title box above it only capitlaizes the first letter. I thought if it can do it with the first letter can Excel do it with all of the letters.

Force Date Format Entry In Text Box

Sep 5, 2007

A form loads and the first thing the user is to do is enter a specific date in a text box (preferably in, "mm/dd/yyyy" format.)

Is there any way to set up the text box so that when the form loads, the, "/"'s (slashes) are already in place? And can I set it up so that if the user enters in the date in any other manner aside from, "mm/dd/yyyy", that it will give them an error?

Finally, I want the user's date input to store on a worksheet (in row, "G".) So the first time the user uses the form, they type in a date and it stores the date in the FIRST AVAILABLE CELL IN ROW, "G." (example: "G1") The next time they use the form and type in a date, it is to store in, "G2", then in, "G3", ect. Each time they fill out the form, the new entry is to save in the next row beneath the previous entry.....

For other text boxes and combo boxes I have been using the following code to do this:

Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & intRow) = Text.Value (or Combobox.Value - depending on whether it was a text box or a combo box.)

Unfortunately I have NO idea how to apply this logic in regards to text boxes that are to store dates.

Force Cells To Recalculate (simulate Double Click)

May 4, 2007

I have an interesting question for everybody here. Let me see how to best explain it.

I start in the code making sure column Action Plan completion has a value in it. Copying in the issue modified column if neccesary.

'Back fill last modified
'I need to start with the first data row (3) and the action plan completion column
Let intcurrentrow = 3
Let intcurrentcol = intactionplancompletion
Do Until intcurrentrow > intmaxrow
If Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).Value = "" Then
Let Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).Value = Cells(intcurrentrow, intissuemodified).Value
'Need to ensure that everything is formatted as a date
Let Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).NumberFormat = "m/d/yy h:mm AM/PM"
End If
Let intcurrentrow = intcurrentrow + 1

Later, I place this formula in a given cell.

=If(I9="Open-Remediated",M9-K9, If(I9="Closed-Remediated and Validated",M9-K9,"" ))

The info I copied above is placed into the column K.

When I run the macro, the cell formula outputs "#value".

However, if I go double-click then enter the cell calculates just fine.

I've tried excels overall recalculate function, but that doesn't change this.

Does anybody know how to simulate a double-click on a cell?

Active X Text Box Multiline And Bolding

Jan 14, 2010

I have a couple of active x text boxes that I am using in a user form to enter data to a sheet. I wasn't able to get the text to move to the next line, but I changed the Multiline and EnterKeyBehavior to True and now when I hit enter it is working how I want it to. But when I click ok on my user form it is putting the data where I want it but it is putting a symbol that looks like a ? with a border around it in where I am pressing enter. Is there a way to avoid having this symbol show up?

The other question I have is if it is possible for specific text to be Bold in the text box and some not? I haven't been able to figure out a solution for that.

Cells.Replace What:="Institute Technology Code", Replacement:="ITC", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False
