My difficulty: I have an Excel 2007 DB xlsx Workbook file (mydb.xlsx) made up of several (8) Worksheets. I can't modify the content of this DB. For this reason I 've created another Workbook (MyGUI.xlsm) implementing a user interface for db querying.
The userform let the user making searches using the find method (criteria: "Text contains...") In the DB file there is one particular Sheet with thousands of entries. This makes the searchs too long (30 seconds). During this period the entire form is blocked.
My question: when the user realizes the search is too long I'd like to stop the current search
introducing for example a new button "stop current Search" to click it in these situations.
I'm not the best at explaining, but I think that the excel sheet is pretty straight forward.
In Sheet2, cells C3 and D3 are manually entered by the user. I am looking for a formula for B3 that will take the information entered into C3 and D3, find the row in Sheet1 in which column C=Sheet2!C3 and column D=Sheet2!D3, and give the unique corresponding result from Sheet 1 for that row in column B .
So, for example, if C3=A and D3=102, then the result would be 444 if C3=A and D3=104, then the result would be 111 if C3=B and D3=102, then the result would be 111
The combination of C3 and D3 is always unique and will never have more than one possible result in column B of Sheet1.
Attached is the mock excel spreadsheet. I want to read "sam" from the lookup column's long text "sam is good" and then write "4" in the next column. Similarly read "white" from the long text "white is tired" and write "1". And so on,,,,, For more criteria, see box highlighted in yellow,,,,I used VLOOKUP but what am able to make it work only when there is one word "sam" in the lookup column. It returns #NA when the text is "sam is good". It should write nothing if none of the criteria is met and should keep doing until the last cell in the lookup column.
This is weird - if you delete a sheet that contained a control then
a. showing a modeless userform resluts in a userofrm that goes invisible at subroutine End b. public variables lose their value
These things do not happen if the sheet did not contain a control. Attached is an example file - put the inputfile.xls in your default file location (or add a path in the code) then open the ProblemDemo.xls and run the main macro to see it fal - isthis another Excelbug I've found?
with printing a long userform? Unfortunately, the me.printform does not print out the whole form. It gets cut off because my form is too long and slightly too wide. I also tried to do a print screen, but unfortunately, because my form is too long, it will only do a snapshot of a portion of the form. In my case, on the bottom as that is where I have placed my command button.
Does anyone know how to bring the whole form out to excel or word? I don't mind doing that as long as I can print out the whole form?
How to assign a variable of type Long to the below code.
1) Dim searchField as LOng ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200=""" & searchField & """,$C$2:C$200))"
2) ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200= searchField,$C$2:C$200))" 1) code failed because I want the variable searchField to have a data type of LONG.
2) code failed because it seems like excel thought the search criteria is of same searchField.
How to convert date to general format and store it in a variable of data type Long. I.E if I convert 3/15/2008(data type of Date) to data type of General, it should be 39522. What is the VBA code for doing this conversion?
I have several non-modal userforms in my App, some of them have date-fields that require manual entry typing of dd/mm/yy etc (No single userform has more than one date-box in it, this I think may be pivotally useful)
Now the Userform 'Calendar' that is built on the class of the same (cCalendar) name, has the write value line 'ActiveCell.value = theCal.value'
I'm looking to change this to refer to the correct userform.Textbox value, depending on which form is open.
I would imagine I could simply have a global string, whose value is set (or re-set) whenever a Userform is initialized (some sort of 'ActiveUF.value = Me.Name), where I get lost is referring to the components by name, so as to have a case statement by where I go:
Private Sub theCal_AfterUpdate() Select Case ActiveUF Case "AddForm" application.vbe.components("AddForm").controls("AddFormDatePicker").value = theCal.value Case "EditForm" '.... etc end select end sub
better way of doing this (instead of passing around the userform name as a variable) - or proper syntax for referring to controls outside of the 'active' userform (but an open userform nonetheless)?
Every time I have to do this particular thing with userforms, I completely forget how, and the object browser always leads me on an infinite loop of Application.vbe.activevbproject.vbcomponents.vbe.active....
PS - there may be one slight complication to the process - one of the forms, has a 2-tab page in it, each page having similar (but named differently) fields. So I may need to be able to throw in 'Activepage' or whatnot
I am using a userform and i have added some data to listboxes but it comes as being too long when it is only one character. I checked in properties to change the settings and tried to change everything but it doesnt work.
I have a large spreadsheet, within which i am trying to remove commas from all cells. I get the error 'formula is too long' when I carry out the search. Some of the cells are >1024 characters in length and contain dates, text etc.
I currently have a small userform placed at the bottom right of the screen (with a command button on it) and this opens up on top of excel instances and other applications/windows and it is set so that you can't interact with anything except the userform.
I wanted to minimize the userform and give focus to immediate next window (can be excel or non excel applications) for 10 seconds and then activate/show the userform back again, when the "Button 1" on the userform is clicked.
I tried hiding the userform, but this doesn't give focus to the immediate next window. Below is the code
Private Sub Button_Click() Me.Hide PauseApp (10) Me.Show End Sub
I could only find answers for adding minimize and maximize buttons to userform.
When the button is clicked, it should perform
Step a - Minimize the userform Step b - Give focus to the next immediate window behind the userform Step c - Wait for 10 seconds Step d - Bring back the userform its to state.
I created an UserForm that looks for Student Name his/her Conferenece Date through a VLookup.
The following is my code:
Private Sub cmdFind_Click() With frmConference .txtTranslator.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(txtStudentName.Value, Sheets("SPANISH").Range("A2:F113"), 6, 0) .txtDate.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(txtStudentName.Value, Sheets("SPANISH").Range("A2:F113"), 5, 0) .txtTime.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(txtStudentName.Value, Sheets("SPANISH").Range("A2:F113"), 4, 0) End With End Sub
The txtTranslator and txtTime works correctly, however txtDate give me a number '40850' not a Date?
Rather than use Control-F to find the text in a cell, is there some VBA programming that could do the same and then go to the cell or cells containing the text input to be found? I tried recording the macro to find, but it would show up in the VB Editor because I had to close the find function down to then stop recording.
I have a rather large sheet with lots of embedded form control buttons, each one with a document link. Is there a function (no VBA) to search for a specific form control button in excel? for example: i want to find the form control button which is linked to the "application" document.
I am doing a control F search on a value that does not come back with a result. But the value exists in the sheet. I have multiple columns and rows (over 22,000 rows). Are there limits to how much you can search using control F?
I import some text from a web page. The data is separated in rows and columns so it easily slip into cells in a nice row and column manner.
Now, I want to parse some names in one column (column A:A). The names do not reside in any other column. I want to change the content for those cells that is "Alpha Beta" into just "Beta", and I only want the replacing to be carried out on a specific sheet (named "Import").
I've a worksheet, which has formulas, links, combo list box and format control.
I've made a user form to enter the data, so that the particular cells in the worksheet is filled and the remaining cells are calculated as per the formula.The format control (combo box) has list of range.
Is it possible to bring this format control (combo box) on the user form, so that without going to the sheet, I Can control the sheet by selecting the combo box values.
I've got the bare bones of a toolbox control on my userform but I can seem to find anyway to refer to the buttons and control them (I’ve tried using the properties page but it doesn't seem to give me the options I need). I want to be able to add a macro and a picture to the buttons, is this possible?
.image/picture/faceid = “x” .action = "macro1"
I've looked for ages on the board but can only find threads on creating toolbars in the application, not on userforms.
Split off from Loop Through ActiveX TextBox Controls On Worksheet. Here is a zip file with the files in it. The main one that I am working on now is PO Form.xls. I want to start with the Qty column and copy any values that are entered into the form to the file called PO.xls in the Qty column of this file.
This code works fine on a normal userform But I declared the userform with "New" in my calling procedure
myForm As New form
How can I get it to work?? Or more interesting, why is it not working Also what exactly is the advantage of using the keyword New I have propertys set in the userform, but other than that.. Can someone tell me if the load function in this case is better or not
