I've been working on a particular spreadsheet and I've just noticed that
double clicking the format painter will only format one cell. It won't
retain the format to be put into the next selected cell which it should when
its double clicked. The same goes for copy and paste. Normally once you've
copied something you can paste it into a number of cells individually, one
after the other, but after the first paste selection, the paste option is no
longer available. I can't see any settings under options to fix this. What has happened, and how do I fix it? (I'm using Excel 2003 SP1 - is there a SP2?)
When I copy or cut, I usually get a dashed border around the cells I have copied (or cut), I can then right-click somewhere to paste, but at some point in time recently this functionality has stopped working. The format painter doesn't work either - the paintbrush icon stays pressed for about half a second, then just goes away and I can't paste my formatting.
An operation I often do in excel is to copy a date from one cell, then highlight a few cells elsewhere and press enter to paste the date into them. I also like to right click on a row and Cut, then past it further down my list to re-order things, but this won't work either.
I don't know what I've done to make it go away. If I restart my computer and open a workbook, then I can copy/paste at least once (maybe a few times) then it stops again.
This is caused by a Skype 'click to call' function, but I don't have that installed here. I have actually just tried installing it, so I could run through the uninstall (thinking there might be debris from something previously), but it made no difference.
The file is sorted A-Z, but if you scroll down towards the bottom, you will see that some values are out of order. Both instances of University of Central Florida and University of North Dakota are out of place.
University of Central Florida should be between University of California and University of Colorado.
University of North Dakota should be between University of Colorado and University of Southern Mississippi.
I am trying to work out an excel workbook for calculating family recipes. I have gotten most of it figured out but am having a problem with one thing. When the serving size of an item is 8 oz & the recipe calls for 14.5 oz the only way I can get it to work properly is to enter 1.75 in the serving size.
But I would like (actually need) to be able to enter the 14.5 and have it calculate the calories correctly - since sometimes the amount to be added to the recipe may be 15 ounces and the serving size is 8 ounces etc....
I have 6 categories that need to be ranked 1-6 in order of highest number of occurances. My ranking formula is showing 1-7, missing number 3. I have attached a sample worksheet further showing what I am trying to explain. I need cell A3 to show a ranking of "3". Currently it shows "4". What am I doing wrong??
I have the following two codes on a userform, The first code performs two steps:
The first step is running the second code (MyDate), which is used for checking the entries in the userform textboxes and if there is any wrong entry a message box appears then it exits sub.
However, what happens when it finds any wrong entry is that it displays the msgbox and instead of exiting sub as it is requested in the (MyDate) code, it resumes running and moves to the second step and adds 1 to ComboBox1 ListIndex.
I am in the process of converting my programs over so as not to use these and I am already seeing a drastic difference in speed.
I have run into a problem that I need help with. I have a spreadsheet similar to the example below. The first column contains a list of college majors and after each major is a row of classes that are required by that major.
The first thing I need to do is search down the first column for the major. Once the major is found I need to search across the row for the class. I am having trouble searching across a single row for the class.
Here is the section of code where I experience the problem
I often have problems with the cells range reference method. For some reason I get an error and can't tell why. Other times it works fine. Is this just an unstable method to use or is this completely wrong? I'm assuming I am using the wrong syntax. It is definetly the range reference causing the problem.
Dim cnt1 as integer, cnt2 as integer,cnt3 as integer
cnt1 = 2 cnt2 = 50 cnt3 = 2
dim myrange as range
set myrange = sheets("sheet1").range(cells(2,cnt1), cells(cnt2,cnt3))
I have no idea why it won't work. I'm basically searching a columner range of cells.
The code below is supposed to insert a column and rename it. However, when I debug, the code only renames the column, it does split or run the loop. I press debug again, and then code executes as it is intended.
I can't explain why I have to press debug twice for in order for the code to work properly.
Code: Sub renameColumns() With Sheets("byPosition")
I thought I had been able to use array to have more than two criterias with Autofilter, but now I am unable to make the following code work. What I am trying to do is have all the records that does not contain either N/A, S/O or xx and also have a filter on column 125 for the value "OUI".
VB: Sub test() Set ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("SOMMAIRE_EN_ALL") Set ws2 = Workbooks("Fichier_central_2013_anglais_2_CLEAN").Sheets("DETAIL_CONCAT") Set r = ws2.Range("A1:du4783")
I'm using the following code to try to ensure a value is entered into a text box, but when I click over to the next text box skipping the first one entirely, I don't receive any message indicating the previous box is empty. I'm trying to make it so certain fields are required and others are optional. Here's the code I'm currently using:
I have entered a custom sort order under 'first key sort order,' but the field is not sorting according to the list.
I'm sure I entered the list correctly, because I actually entered it a long time ago, and it was working for a while. However, today the underlying data was temporarily erased, and the pivot table, when refreshed, basically went blank. I restored the data and refreshed the table, but this field is back to sorting in the wrong order. Refreshing the pivot table and re-choosing the appropriate sort options do not work.
I have a few tasks which I have been doing manually because I do not know if there is a way to accomplish these tasks automatically via some excel formulas.
My first task requires me to take an address, for example: 1234 CAMBIE STREET, and format it such that it is properly capitalized (only capital letters in the front of words) like this: 1234 Cambie Street
My second task involves taking an address, for example: 1234 1st Avenue W, and rearranging it such that the direction is in front of the street name like so: 1234 W 1st Avenue. What makes this task potentially even more complicated is that not all the addresses I am working with require the rearrangement, so I can't simply have a formula that puts the last group of characters in front of the first group of characters because that may screw up addresses that don't require this formatting.
My third task demands that 2 columns of names are combined into one column, while also simultaneously placing a "&" between the names. For example: Jonathan Parkinson | Sarah Parkinson turns into Jonathan Parkinson & Sarah Parkinson. Now I do understand how to use a simple combining formula (=a1&" & "&b1) but it isn't that simple. The columns are not all filled with names. Some pairs may have no names, whereas others may have only one name. Because of this, the formula I used as an example will result in many instances where all I see is a "&", and other instances where I see the first name, followed by an unnecessary "&".
So far, for the majority of these problems, I've been using a combination of manual data input, and the replace function, but I really do hope there is a faster and better way to go about these tasks.
I have a range which has conditional formats based on other cells. I want to copy this range into another sheet and retain the current formats as fixed formats without copying the conditional formulae. ideally in VBA.
How well does Excel / VBA deal with data in a binary format? I am working on a Base64 decoder, which in basic terms means I will have 4 numbers, which I need to convert into their binary representations (6 bits each). I then need to combine these binary groups together, and then divide them up differently to give me 3 numbers (made of 8 bits each).I'm just wondering if anyone has any examples on how best to work with binary in Excel? Also if there are an gems of builtin library functions?
I am trying to copy a range of cells and Need to transpose the values. Easy Enough? When I right-click and paste special, it gives me a new window with an array of options but not the standard Paste special value screen. I have used the others in the past and just pasted text. However this does not give me the paste transpose option which is what I need.
I am sure this is a User error where there is something about the way that I am copying this information but I am Drawing a Blank...
My goal is to get all numbers that are negative in my A column to be positive.
I filter column A to show only records with negative numbers (there are now hidden cells) (simple example, A2=-1 , A3=2, A4=-3, filter so I can now only see A2 and A4). I insert a column (B) and do "=abs(A1)" and drag that down. This works to get the absolute value of column A into column B, for only the visible records. (so I still only see rows 2 and 4; B2=1, B4=3)
Now the hard part. I want to copy these numbers to column A, but only paste to visible cells. I highlight my data range in column B and hit Alt + ; to only select visible cells. Now I hit Ctrl + c to copy. If I then click on the first cell in column A that I want to paste to and hit Ctrl + V, the data is pasted in all cells, no spaces, filling in the hidden cells, which I do not want (in my example the 1 from B2 goes to A2 and the 3 from B4 goes to A3).
If I select my entire 'paste to' data range in column A (A2:A4), hit ALT + ; to select visible only, and hit CTRL + V to paste, it tells me "This command cannot be used on multiple selections".
AOther postings of seen seem to intimate that my first attempt described here should work (select visible only, copy, then paste), but doesn't! i can copy visible only easily enough, but when I paste, it ALWAYS pastes into all rows, hidden or not.
