Get Previous Value Of A Cell In Change Event?

Oct 15, 2013

My favorite question in IT was, "Can you recover the file I did not save?" and now I am basically asking the same question.

I have headers on one sheet tied to fields on another sheet. If the user changes a header I would like to display a message that says, "The header you changed, 'OLD MESSAGE HEADER' will no longer match the value on the look-up sheet. DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE"

If they say no then the old header is restored. Is this possible?

Worksheet Change Event :: (ByVal Target As Range) Event In Module After Creating A Sheet

Mar 27, 2009

Is there a way to write a Worksheet_SelectionChange (ByVal Target As Range) event in module after creating a sheet in VBA? I constantly delete a sheet, then repopulate it with a new one that is empty, but I need to add some code that happens if they should change a particular cell. It worked when I ran it on a worksheet without refreshing, but as soon as I cleared and repopulated the sheet, it was gone. Is there a way to preserve this?

Capture Cell Value Before Change Event

Mar 3, 2009

I am trying to capture the value of a cell before a change even. The attached Macro will report the value before the change but does not store it so that I can use it in another module. What I am trying to do is capture the value before the change and then look that value up in another worksheet (in the same workbook) so I can make the same change in the second workbook.

The values will always be in Column B and will always be string characters.

The code I am using for the change event is as follows: ....

Worksheet Cell Change Event

Mar 6, 2007

I have looked at the threads concerning cell change events but cannot find a solution to my situation. I have a worksheet with a cell using a validation list. I wish to exicute a procedure whenever the dropdown list is changed in that one cell. Everything I have seen in the Worksheet event threads is evaluating the contents of a cell and I am attempting to exicute if the cell changes.

Change Event Causing Event To Fire Again

Aug 7, 2006

I have the following code, which works perfectly:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim TotalDays As Integer

TotalDays = Range("C65536").End(xlUp).Row + 1

The code points to the next blank cell so the user can input a value. Each time the user enters a value I want to re-run the code so that the colour of the cell changes.

However I also want to perform various calculations on the sheet. However this means the sheet is being changed and so continually repeats my code.

How do I add the following, to my previous code?

Range("E8").Value = Cells(7, 6) * 2.5

Cell Formatting On Worksheet Change Event

Nov 22, 2011

I'm trying to create a worksheet change event macro that will change the colour of the cell when you update the value in that cell.

I have column C with 140 rows and when one of the cells in the column is changed by the user, I need the same cell to highlight in yellow. The highlight would then be removed once the user has acted on the change in the value, and that'll be done in another macro.

I understand I need a worksheet change event macro in the specific sheet and need the following code for yellow:

Code:
.Interior.Color = RGB(255,255,0)

, but any further I get stuck as it involves 'target addresses'

Worksheet Change Event Not Responding To Cell Deletion ...

Worksheet Change Event Not Responding To Cell Deletion

Nov 14, 2008

This is part of a macro in a worksheet_change event. When a cell in column J gets deleted by a user, the corresponding cell in column K should also clear. But it's not responding to the delete.

It DOES clear when the other 2 criteria are met (.cells(1,10) = 0 and .cells(i,5) <> "Annuity"). The worksheet_change event should pick up on the cell deletion, but it's not. And column J is already a trigger for the macro to run, so I'm not sure what's going on. Either the trigger is still wrong, the isempty(.cells(i,10)) is not correct syntax, or this event just doesn't respond to cell deletion.

Change Event: Not Firing From Cell Changed By ComboBox

Dec 4, 2006

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
With Target.Cells(1, 1)
If Not Intersect(.Cells, Range("b3:b6")) Is Nothing Then
Range("b7") = "Not Found"
For i = 3 To 6: txt = txt & Cells(i, "b").Value & "_": Next
For Each r In Range("m3", Cells(3, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft))
For i = 0 To 3: txt2 = txt2 & r.Offset(i).Value & "_": Next
If txt = txt2 Then
Range("b7").Value = r.Offset(4).Value
Exit For
End If
txt2 = ""
Next
ElseIf Not Intersect(.Cells, Range("b16:b19")) Is Nothing Then
Range("b20") = "Not Found".....................

I'm working with this code right now. The problem is the macro will only work if i type the numbers manually. if the values are retrieved from a combobox, the code above down not work as it cannot read the values.

Restrict Target Change Event To Single Cell

Sep 9, 2007

I'm trying to create a sheet where clicking in a range brings up, in my users words, "a box I can type loads of comments in". They want some kind of flag in this cell showing if comments are posted or not. So far so ok, got the userform to pop up using the selection change event below and dump the actual comments somewhere the user won't look. A rather inelegant IF statement to see if there's anything in the dump cell gives them their flag.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If Intersect(Target, Range("B2:B300")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
UserForm1.TextBox1.Value = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 10).Value
UserForm1.show
End Sub

So what's the problem? When I select entire rows, the userform pops up. Is this unavoidable?

Stop Selection Change Event Firing When More Than 1 Cell

Oct 12, 2007

I've set up code where when a cell within a specified range of cells is selected, a macro will run. This works all well and good except for when a whole row, column or range containing the defined cells is selected, there is a run time error. There is no situation where I want multiple cells selected to run the macro, so I only want to run the macro when only a single cell within that range is selected.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange")) Is Nothing Then
Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter"
End If

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange2")) Is Nothing Then
Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter"
End If
End Sub

The ranges defined are non-contigious ranges.

Worksheet Calculate Event To Automatically Change The Color Of A Cell

Jan 30, 2009

I am trying to use the worksheet calculate event to automatically change the color of a cell only when that particular cell changes. In E2 of the worksheet is a formula use to determine rating based on the result of 2 other cells. The rating is classified as follows

Low
Moderate
High
Maximum

I would like to generate a different set of color to the cell and fonts for each of the rating. For example,

"Cyan" to the cell E1 and E2 with Black font if the result is "Low"
"Plum" to the cell E1 and E2 with "Black font if the result is "Moderate"
"Blue" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "High" and
"Red" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "Maximum"

Does Cell Updated By Market Data Feed Mechanism Qualify For Change Event

Oct 27, 2012

It is my general understanding that the change event system within Excel vba is fairly particular as to what will fit the mold of a qualifying change event.

For example, changes that the user imparts to the worksheet and other written code are legitament candidates for change events. However copying down data and cells changing their values indirectly rather than directly may not be considered in the Microsoft change event design.

I would like to know 2 things:

1) Does a cell updated by a market data feed mechanism qualify for a change event?

2) Any list of qualifying change event types. It seems that Microsoft does not have this information.

Worksheet Change Event Triggered By Formula Change?

Dec 6, 2011

Basically the situation I have is Sheet2 has many references to cells in Sheet1. Sheet2 is for all intents and purposes a kind of nicely formatted report form, and Sheet1 is the input form.

My ultimate goal is to automatically resize row heights on Sheet2 when cell contents change on Sheet2.

Using a worksheet_change event isn't working I presume because it doesn't see the formula output change as a worksheet change, the worksheet_change is firing only when the input is changed in Sheet1.

how can I capture these formula output changes on Sheet2 (triggered from input on Sheet1) OR is there a way of making a particular sheets rows always adjust in height to best fit?

Conditional Formatting Based On Magnitude Of Change From Previous Value

May 29, 2013

Is there a way I can highlight cells that are differ from their adjacent cells by more than 10%?

Sample case:
Month 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12
Sales 100 112 100 130 140 160 175 200 170 170 140 135

Here, In April, July and August, there is a sharp increase (>10%), while in September and November, there is a steep decline (>10%). I would like to format the sharp increases as Green, while sharp declines as red.

Can I do it using conditional formatting?

I know I can attain this by creating a separate row for Month/Month growth in above example. But this example is a simplified version of my data. Real data is a lot more complex, and I need to do the formatting without creating any additional columns/rows.

Changing Font Color Based On Change From Previous Value

Jun 18, 2008

I want the order size to be colored red. If the most recent order is larger than the previous order, I want the order size to be colored blue. If the most recent order is the exact same size as the previous order, I want the order to be colored black.

How would I make code that would let me "remember" the previous order size and the most recent order size, and let me compare them to conditionally format the font?
