Give Control To Userform During Long DB Search

Feb 24, 2014

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.

Userform To Control Macro Features. Macro = Search For File Type

Jan 26, 2009

I have a macro that I found somewhere on the net to look within a folder and list all the files of a certain file extension.

The macro to do this is in the attached example and is called 'Get_File_Names_Within_Dir_ext'.

I have created a basic userform outline, 'UF1' for the user to define:
Select File Extension
Select Folder to Search
Destination Sheet

I just don't have any idea how to sync the two.

If you type 'exe' into 'TB1_File_Extension' of 'UF1' the macro should search for '*.exe' files within the specified folder.

The search folder 'RefEdit1' box should open a windows explorer box (or some such) so that the user can select the directory in which to search for the previously specified file extension.

'TB2_Destination_Sheet' is a text box for the user to type the sheet within the workbook in which to list the files found within the specified directory.

'CB1_Find_Files' should activate the macro to find any files for the specified criteria.

There is also a Button 'Find File Types' in Sheet1 of the file which should activate the userform 'UF1'.

Formula: Give User Limited Control

Jan 26, 2010

1. The example is cell B1 has a drop down list with the following options: MIN, MAX, AVERAGE, MEAN, SUM

The range F2:F20 hold the values upon which I want the formula to work

Cell B3 is to calculate the result of performing the the function defined in B1 over the data set in F2:F20

What formula do I need in B1. I have tried various of methods of forming the above into a text string and then preceding with INDIRECT but my problem seems to be with the range part.

2. Same as above but I want to the users to write as text (without equal sign) the formula they want to use

Search Using Info From Two Cells To Give Corresponding Answer From Different Sheet

Feb 14, 2014

see the attached 'Example' excel sheet.

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.

VLOOKUP - Search Only One Word From Long Text, Write

Feb 22, 2010

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.

Macro That Deletes Sheet With Control & Shows UserForm Causes UserForm To Disappear

Jun 15, 2009

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?

UserForm Won't Process Because VBA Is Too Long

May 9, 2014

I have a UserForm where the user can enter figures for 143 different items which they select via a combobox drop down.

When I tested it, I hit the submit button but it says the procedure is too large!

Here is the code which is repeated 143 times but with a different row number and range each time (in red):

[Code] .......

So the next bit of code would be exactly the same except the range would be C5 and the row would be 18.

The range is always going to increase nice and easily: C5 up to C146.

The row number is a bit hit and miss.

Is there a way of significantly decreasing the size of this or will I have the break the code down into different UserForms?

Print A Long Userform

Jul 4, 2007

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?

Date Conversion And Use A Variable Of Type Long As A Search Criteria

Jul 22, 2008

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?

Referencing Userform Control From Another Userform / Class Via Variable

May 3, 2012

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:

Code:

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

Minimize Userform And Give Focus To Immediate Next Window When Button Clicked

May 10, 2014

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.

Userform Textbox Using VLookup Date Could Not Give Correct Answer (40850)

Nov 6, 2011

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?

How can I change this number for the actual Date?

Text Search :: Rather Using Control + F

Sep 28, 2006

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.

VBA - How To Control Search And Replace To Only Be Valid For Defined Sheet

Apr 5, 2013

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 recorded a VBA script and it look like this:

Cells.Replace What:="Alpha Beta", Replacement:="Beta", LookAt:=xlPart,
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False

But, when I try different setting for the range I get the same script, I mean, for when I try the search & replace with settings for both the whole workbook and for the current sheet.

How can I control the search & replace with VBA to only be valid for a defined sheet?

Cursor Control With Userform

Dec 17, 2008

I have created a simpel userform that shows sales total and it is activated [.show function] whenever an entry is made in the order column. All of this works fine.

The only problem I have is that the curser jumps in to the text box and doesn't return to the order column where next entry needs to be made.

How do you move the curser out of the userform, back to the activesheet?
Ideally it should move to the next cell for the user to make entry.

I am attaching my sample file here. It has some odd things that I was just playing around with as learning experience. But the main question is how to control the curser.

Toolbar Control On Userform ..

Apr 3, 2008

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 (Ive 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?

Eg.

With Userform1.Toolbar1.button("x")

.image/picture/faceid = x
.action = "macro1"

end with

I've looked for ages on the board but can only find threads on creating toolbars in the application, not on userforms.
