Handle Find Macro Error When Text Is Not Found

Mar 1, 2008

I have the following macro which I've pieced together which works great at clearing the cell as long as the text entered by the user is found in the specified column.

Unfortunately I'm a big rookie with this stuff and I can't figure out how to handle the process/error when an entered value is not found. When ChosenRow returns with a 0 I get a Run time error '91', Object Variable or With Block variable not set.

The code...

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
oldSheet$ = ActiveSheet.Name
Dim ChosenRow As Long
Dim loc As Variant
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
With UserForm4
loc = .TextBox1.Text
End With
With ActiveWorkbook
End With

Handle Find Method Error When Value Not Found

Dec 19, 2007

I have error trapping in place so if a find in a column returns no data the procedure continues, but the code breaks there anyway.

In Tools/Options/General/Error Trapping I have Break on Unhandled Errors checked.

I have changed my error trapping lables.

I have copied the procedure and renamed it.

Find String Within Worksheet & Handle Error If Not Found

Jun 17, 2008

this line

Cells. Find(What:=searchterm, After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find pn that is stored in searchterm

causes a runtime error 91 when there are no results. "Object variable or with block variable not set"

Ideally, when there are no results, I would like to enter a loop, where I could provide a drop down list of fuzzy matches, but I am not sure excel can do fuzzy matches. I'd settle for just highlighting the row and moving on... any help?

Option Explicit

Sub Macro1()

ActiveSheet.Cells.Find(What:="AES", After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find the aes part number column
Dim aescolumn 'create variable for index value of aes column
aescolumn = ActiveCell.Column 'set variable to index number

Using Find In Macro Without Error If Nothing Found?

Feb 12, 2013

I'm trying to write some VBA which will allow me to find certain instances of data across a number of different sheets and copy this into another sheet.

However if the sheet doesn't contain the data I'm searching for an error pops up and the macro dies, is there a way to search where if the macro doesn't find anything it skips to the next line?

Handle Run Time Error With Find Method

Oct 11, 2007

I have searched the Forum for help on this error 91 but still cannot figure this out.

Below is a format macro I created. I have several ' Find' routines in here and at the beginning of each one I give it an 'On Error GoTo' type statement. This seems to work fine until it gets to a second error. I have moved various 'Find' routines around and it doesn't matter which order they are in, if there are two things it can't find, it gives the error 91 on the second.

Sub Format_SFDC_Detail_Reports()
' Macro to format salesforce.com reports with details. rguest

On Error Goto errorhandler

Msg = "Do you want to format this report for Landscape (Yes) or Portrait (No)?"
Style = vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion + vbDefaultButton1 + vbSystemModal
Title = "Format Report as Landscape?"
response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)

If response = vbCancel Then
'Exit the routine
Goto last_line:
End If
If response = vbYes Then
format_style = "Landscape"
End If
If response = vbNo Then
format_style = "Portrait"
End If

Find Text/Value & Use Found Cell, Row, Column In Macro Code

May 10, 2008

I am trying to clean up and simplify my macros by compartmentalizing frequently repeated commands. I like to search for text in column headings and define the cell containing it as a range that I can later use .column or .row commands on, so my macros are a bit more flexible. The code I currently use for this is

Dim XColumn As Range ‘the cell containing the text “X”
Selection.Find(What:="X", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Set XColumn = ActiveCell

I would like to be able to create a Macro (possibly name FindSetCell()) that will accept arguments and achieve the results of the above code in other macros
I think the command might look something like FindSetCell(“text to be searched for”,”name of newly Defined Range”) But I have not figured out how to code it

Error Handle Routine For Macro

Aug 16, 2007

How can I edit the following code. If the "Dload" tab is not there the code errors out. How can I make it so that if the "Dload" is not there the macro says "Dload tab missing. Do you want to check file and try again" If the user says yes. then the macro lets the user pick another file. If the user chooses No then does similar quesiton like I have here starting with

Vba Macro Error: Compile Error Named Argument Not Found

Apr 26, 2006

I have some code that, although works fine in Excel 2003, does not in Excel 1997. I receive this error when I try running it:


Dim r As Range, myStr As String
myStr = "HP"
Set r = Cells. Find(What:=myStr, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
While Not r Is Nothing
Set r = Cells.FindNext(r)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
End If
End If
End Sub

It looks like Excel is getting hung up on the "SearchFormat:=" portion of the code.

Error Handle To Return Object Causing Error

Apr 13, 2006

whether I can handle errors in a way that tells me which object caused the error?

For example if a userform has two combobox's and one causes an error, can I return to a message box containing the name of the object (combobox1 or combobox2)?

I have tried returning err.source but I am either not using it correctly or it isn't intended to be used this way.

Macro Cannot Be Found Or Is Disabled Error

Mar 7, 2013

I have a worksheet with several option buttons and until yesterday, I had no problem selecting them. But today, every time, I select a radio button, an error shows up stating "Cannot run Macro "Option Button_click. Macro is not available in this workbook or is disabled". When the user selects a radio button, text appears in Col B depending on what button was selected (using VLOOKUP). That stuff is still working fine. It's just as soon as I click a radio button, the error shows up.

Based on the radio button selected, user can add in information to the columns adjacent to it, and then click a button to store that information in some rows below. The code for that button is stored in the sheet module. I have tried enabling macros and disabling macros and no change has appeared. What I have noticed though is that yesterday, when i opened the workbook, a yellow bar appeared asking if I wanted to "Enable Content". Today, that bar didn't appear.

Find Text And Copy Found Range

May 15, 2007

I have some EXCEL files, titled as "AAA", "BBB", "CCC", so on... Calculated values are placed in Column Z for each file. In order for me to export the files to another software, I would need to create another new EXCEL file (I call it MASS) and place all the calculated values in that new file. In that new file, the titles have to be on Column A and the calculated values on Column B.

For example, File "AAA" has 120 calculated values. In MASS, the word "AAA" has to appear on Column A a number of 120 times and the 120 calculated values are then placed on Column B. Each value must correspond to the word "AAA". The same procedure goes for "BBB", in which the word "BBB" is placed on Column A after the end of "AAA". What I want to achieve is by using a macro that will look up the title of the Active Worksheet and then scan Column A in MASS. If the title matches whatever is in Column A, then the macro will paste the corresponding calculated values onto Column B automatically.

For example, for file "GGG", the macro will look up the word "GGG", scan through Column A in MASS for the start of the word "GGG" and paste the calculated values at the start of Column B. Could I have an idea of how might the macro looks like?

Find Text & Offset By Found Value Row And Column

Apr 16, 2008

I'm writing some code where I need to know the column in which a specifc text string occurs. Because of the nature of the sheet, the string will only appear in one column, but that could be in almost any column on the worksheet.

For example say the text string is "Year 1", I need to find the column with this string, and then offset down to a predetermined row, or offset over to the appropriate column (something like below).

With Selection
.Offset(0, x).Select
If List.Selected(0) = True Then
y = i - 1
With Selection
.Value = Salary * Inflation1 ^ y
End With

Macro Runtime Error - Items (charts) Not Found

Oct 3, 2013

I've got an interactive chart on a sheet where users select a chart from a combo box control and a picture link to the chart is displayed. The actual charts are on a hidden sheet. I have to activate the charts first for it to work so I put a button the sheet and recorded a macro where I unhide the hidden sheet, select each chart as I scroll down the screen by clicking on it then hide the sheet again and return to the interactive chart.

My problem is that I'm getting an error when the macro tries to select the first chart which is called "Chart 6":

Run-time error '-2147024809 (80070057)':

The item with the specified name wasn't found

I recorded the macro so I'm not sure why the macro isn't working now.

Sub ResetCharts()
' ResetCharts Macro
' Reset all charts
Sheets("Budget v Actual Graphs").Select
Sheets("Graph BG").Visible = True
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 6").Activate
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=15
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 35").Activate

Find Text, Go To Found Cell & Show Message If More Than 1 Occurrence

Oct 1, 2008

I have a file that the user selects and when they enter a value (in this case, a job title) into the input box, my macro looks for the value in that file. If the value is there, a msgbox pops up that lets the user know that the value was found and it then goes to that cell, displaying in the next msgbox the cell address of where the value was found. I already have the code down for this part of the macro.

My problem is what happens if the file has the same value more than once. Ideally, I'd like to display a message box that returns the addresses of both cells with the same value and then prompts the user to select one of these values as the value they are looking for. I am not sure if a msgbox or a msgbox and then an input box are most appropriate for this situation. Once the user does this, the macro continues. The rest of my macro is built on the cell where this value is, so it is crucial that I make sure there is at least one value selected. Any help is much appreciated. I have included a sample worksheet of what this situation might look like.

Here is the code I presently have for this part of my macro.

Sub GetOpenFileName()
strFind = InputBox("Please enter the job title you wish to search for:", "Search for job title in this file")

If strFind = vbNullString Then Exit Sub

With Sheets(strSheetsMainCompProfile)
If WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(100, 100)), "*" & strFind & "*") = 0 Then
MsgBox strFind & " cannot be found on this sheet"

VBA Code To Stop Macro If Specific Text Is Found

Feb 24, 2012

I have a simple macro that copies data from worksheet to another. I only want this macro to be run once per day by the user. One of the cells that gets copied is the value found in the formula "=today()". My thought is that the macro could look for the existance of the current date in the pasted data (meaning the macro has already been run once today), and if the date = today, then a message pops up warning the user that the macro has already been run once today, and ask if they're sure they want to continue.

Any easy way to accomplish what I'm attempting to do? The current date gets pasted into a worksheet name "PriorDay" in cell C5.

Handle Quotation Marks Within Text VBA Is Working On

Jul 29, 2009

I have a macro that imports xml and then allows the user to update certain fields. The XML contains many quotation marks and inbound I deal with this by replacing " with ' using Find & Replace.

But before exporting the XML again I need to replace the ' with " but am stuck on how to do this.

For instance I'm trying the following with no success:

Cells.Replace What:="'", Replacement:=""", LookAt:=xlPart" _
, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

Handle #N/A! In VLOOKUP Macro

Nov 7, 2006

I am doing a vlookup accross two sheets where I am adding up the first Vlookup with the second vlookup (ie vlookup sheet 1 + vlookup sheet2) and in one of the sheets the vlookup formula finds a value but in the other sheet it finds nothing. As such when the two formulas are added together it gives a value of #N/A. Since I have made a macro for this it is annoying.

The macro is as follows:

Sub Vlookup()
Dim rowc As Long
Dim i As Long

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

rowc = Application.WorksheetFunction. CountA( Range("a:a"))
For i = 2 To rowc
Cells(i, 3) = "=-VLOOKUP(RC[-2],Hksaldo!C[-2]:C[3],6,FALSE)+VLOOKUP(RC[-2],Likv!C[-2]:C[2],5,FALSE)"
Next i

End Sub

how I can get around this. Ie when I have a non applicable value i one of the Vlookup formula the formula should only look at the vlookup with a value?

End Sub

The purpose of the code is to:Allow the user to open a log fileIn the newly opened log file, find the string "Mobile Device : "Following "Mobile Device : " is a tech number. Strip out "Mobile Device : " and grab the first 5 characters of the tech number.Show me what the tech number is in a message box
If I insert the code into the actual log file (no button and no opening of files), it works fine. I searched this forum and others and used everything I learned to find a solution, but the error remains.

File Not Found Error In Add-in

Nov 6, 2006

I am trying to open an Add-In file (that I wrote) and I am now getting the following error "File Not Found". I am sure it has to do with a typo in the code or something.

However, I cannot get anything to open up so that I can see the VBA code. The spreadsheet itself does not contain any data, just the VBA project.

how I can get at the code to fix it?

I tried to upload the file, but it is too big for the requirements.

This error happens when I press a button I’ve created in the sheet. Funny thing is that there are other buttons right beside this button and they all work just fine. I’ve checked the code and names of all the macros in the sheet.

I’ve recreated a different module and renamed the macro and attached the code to another button.
