In my Excel VBA user form, there are multiple instances of the MS DTPicker control, which feed multiple text boxes. These in turn are linked to named cells on an worksheet. Note at this stage please that dates will not always be required, hence the text boxes. Only the button on the DTP controls are visible, alongside the related textbox.
My problem is that the values in the cells are in US date format and I need them to be recognised in the UK date format. The dates therein must be formatted as dates (ie not as text), as they are used throughout other worksheets for calculations. In the sample below, DTPickerDateOfIncorporation is the named cell (the control source). I know from Roy's responses to other questions on the DTPicker that he doesn't use it - is there a better alternative?
I have a calendar userform that enters a date into a userform textbox in the format mm/dd/yy.
I am in the UK, so default date format is dd/mm/yyyy but i need it as above - mm/dd/yy
So, when I get a MsgBox to repeat Textbox1.Value (the date from the calendar object, formatted mm/dd/yy) and repeat it in format dddd mmmm dd yyyy, it reads the value not as I want it, mm/dd/yy, but as the usual dd/mm/yyyy - so instead of reading 08/01/12 as Wednesday August 01 2012 it is giving me Sunday January 08 2012 - even though in the cells on the worksheet that are populated from the textbox, the date reads correctly, so 08/01/2012 is indeed 1st August 2012 not January 8th 2012...
So it's the MsgBOx function reading the textbox in the userform wrong, and formatting makes no difference...
Can I fix this without changing my regional settings? Is there a way to set the region in vba then unset when leaving the program? I don't want to have to change regional, and anyway, the program will be used by others who won't know / want to do that.
I've done lots of looking on the forum, and the helpfiles, but just cant seem to format my text box properly! Its a form where the user inputs to the text box. I want to control thatway where they enter numbers e.g 05052008 and it gets converted to 05/05/2008 or 05-05-2008. I've tried a range of things, but am really stumped!
I have a userfrom with 2 textboxes used for entering dates. would like to either force the user to enter the date as xx/xx/xxxx or have a calendar feature where they can select a date. I checked my 'additional controls' in my toolbox but do not see a calendar option.
One of my userform text boxes is for the input of a date. this date is being exported to a defined cell in excel, but in a US format, mm/dd/yyyy. i need this to be exported into excel in UK/Aussie format dd/mm/yyyy as our accounting software is getting confused (i am also).
Private Sub TextBox3_Change() Range("C7").Value = TextBox3.Value End Sub
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
I have userform with date pickers and have text boxes overlaid on these, when I select todays date from the date picker it does not display the current date in the text box (I have 8 date pickers on the userform). If I select another date then reselect the current date it works. It has occasionally worked but why.
Below is the code for populating the text box from the Date Picker.
Private Sub DTPicker1_Change() TextBox1.Value = DTPicker1.Value End Sub
The initialize userform code uses the following to format and set the textbox
On the attached example i have a user form (click Add New Hedge button) and on this form is a textbox for 'Avg. Price'. The value of entered from this box will go into the next available row in column on 'Unsettled Hedges' worksheet.
My problem is sometimes i would to enter the price as a fraction, e.g. 1/2 and other i would like to enter the price as a decimal, e.g. 1.5. At the moment if i enter the price as a decimal figure this will convert it to a fraction in column D of the 'unsettled hedges' worksheet.
What do i need to change in my code to make it enter the price in either format?
I have a textbox on a form that has a default value of 0.00. When the user enters a number I want it to format it to currency with two decimal places. I've tried form.textbox1.text = formatcurrency(textbox1.text,"0.00") but it won't format it to two decimal places.
I don't want the end user to do anything to TextBox2 (I've got it set to Enabled=False). I would like TextBox2 to populate in $$ format based on a formula : TextBox1 % x Range("Sales_Price")
I can get TextBox2 to populate correctly, but I can't get it to convert to $$ format. Everything I've come across uses the 'Exit' or 'AfterUpdate' event - but I don't think I can use these events since the User won't actually be doing anything to TextBox2.
I have a userform that contains textbox's that are linked to excel cells and i was wondering if there is a way to format the textbox to show the values in the number format. As the cells values are constantly changing the following code only works if the number is in the hundred of billions but if the number changed to 10,000 for example the format would not adapt.
Private Sub TextBox1_Change() Me.TextBox5 = Format$(CStr(ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ISN").Range("H1").Value) * Val(TextBox1.Text), "###,###,###,###") End Sub
I have an txtBox in a userForm. I need the value of the userform in a customized format i.e. the user will be able to enter only 5 digit numbers and after the value has been entered the txtBox should dispaly the value with prefix "A".
For example: 1. If user enters values as 56, then txtBox should display as A00056. 2. If user enters values as 12346, then txtBox should display as A12346.
I need to be able to format a textbox as curancy. Simple enough, right?
The problem is that this box is loaded from two sources. The first is automatic using the change event, this works well. The second is to enter directly into the textbox, which requires using the exit event, this also works.
The problem comes when I try to use both events. The change event interfers with the direct entry (the format keeps changing the entered value and will not allow the user to finish entering).
I am making a user form in Excel 2007 and for some reason where I am using textboxes for a user to enter numeric values the output on the spreadsheet has a general format which is causing an IF function to return an incorrect value. Is there a way to make sure the output from the form is in "numeric" format?
A particular textbox in myuserform requires a displayed format of 000.000. I would like the user to enter a no less, and no more, than 6 digits. On tab, the textbox displays that value in the preferred format.
eg. enter 123456, TAB, results in textbox display of 123.456
I have tried ...
[Private Sub freq_AfterUpdate() freq = Format(freq, "000.000") End Sub But this results in 123456.000
while trying to limit the user's input to a userform textbox to no avail. For example one textbox on the form should only be numbers and I therefore want to restrict the user to typing in a two digit code like 02 or 72 (not for calculations). Another textbox I only want to allow the user to input 6 characters in the format letter, four numbers and a letter. If the user inputs the wrong stuff a message box pops up and the focus is reset
We have created a userform with several textbox for numbers. We'd like to show them with a format similar to "###,##0.00" and allow the users to enter numbers without commas, but always show the textbox formated. Is there any special way to manage this format? As the textbox is a "text" value, how can we manage the input and the numbers? Should we always replace the "," withi a nullstring? Example:
Private Sub tbCakPrice_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) tbCakPrice.Text = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value), "######0.00") tbPxCakCnFCgl.Value = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value) + Val(tbFleteRealCgl.Value), "########0.00") End Sub.......................
