Having Cells Change Their Contents According To What The Contents Of Other Cells Are
Mar 25, 2008
I have a column in my .XLS whose contents I want to change depending on what the contents of the cells of a different column are. However, I only want two cells from the same row to be dependent on each other. So, for example, if $A$1 reads "1" then $B$1 should read "apple" and if $A$2 reads "1" then $B$2 should read "apple"; if $A$12 reads "3" then $B$12 should read "pavement" etc.
how to clear contents and change colour index of cells.
This is for a booking system. The current VB codes allows bookings to be made by entering a reference number, dates of bookings and room type and bed type. When the VB codes are executed, the cells corresponding to the details entered earlier, would fill the booking table with the reference number and change the colour fill (e.g. yellow) to indicate that the slots are booked. Please refer to attached sample.
However, I do not know how to delete the booking. I would like to assign a cell for user to enter the reference number that needs to be deleted. So when the reference number is entered into that cell, user could execute a function which will clear the contents and change the colour index to none for that particular booking with that reference number(s).
I have a worksheey of data and i would like the tab to be a certain colour dependant on the the contents of a range of cells within that worksheet is that possible. i know i need to use VBA and it cna be done based ont he contents of one cell.
So for example i have a sheet of people i am awaiting payment from, based on the last column " bill paid" i want the tab to be Red if there are any blanks in this column/ range and go green when all the cells in the column/ range are filled with "y"
I wish to copy a merged cell (3 cells) based on if only 1 of 3 cells to the right contain "X". if the top cell does not contain "X" than the merged cell is not copied. Also, is therea more elegant to copy 3 columns at a time rather than do one at a time as my code shows:
Sub CopyICUCAPU() ' ' CopyICUCAPU Macro ' Dim i As Integer
I am referring to the post made by NBVC at http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...xcel-help.html, Try: =IF($A1="",INDIRECT("A"&ROW()-ROW($A$2)+COLUMN(B1)),"") in B2, copied across and down
I have a similar case but there are no empty rows between lists, what would be the formula to get the same results? (The transposed address should appear next to each first line of each block).
Earlier, I posted at http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...-one-cell.html and I got brilliant answers, I also would like to get benefit of the above mentioned formula but in cases when there are no empty rows between lists.
I am looking for a code that will clear all of my unlocked cell in sheet 1. That is not a problem but since many of the cells are merged I know it keeps throwing me an error saying cannot change contents of merged cells or something like that. Does anyone know how to get around this without unmerging the cells. I saw a code to unmerge all of the cells on a sheet but I really don't want to do this as I already have worked around most of my problems with the merged cells.
I have written this code to clear the contents of certain cells, lock the content of others and protect the sheet again it works on sheet1 but not on sheet 7. This is suppose to happen when the Print button on my sheet is clicked.
I have a spreadsheet that has columns stating both status and then further to the right in the row, currency totals. There are only two status options, Stocked and On Order. I need to add the total currency amounts based on this other column's listing and it must change if status changes.
(Put simpler: Column A lists Stocked or On Order and Column B is the currency tied up in that row. I need to make totals for the cells in column B based on the status listed in Column A and it must change when Column A is changed. This should result in two totals, one for Stock Status Currency and one for On Order Curreny)
I want the function of clear contents to work based on the value of B4. If I run the code with clear content part excel crushes.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Range("B4") = "Basic" Then ''*** B4 is adropdown ***'' ActiveSheet.Unprotect 'Range("B10,F10,H10").ClearContents ''*** if I run this part the excel crushes ***''' Range("B10,F10,H10").Locked = True
Is there a way using a macro to check each row in Column D and Column F for "0", so that when both columns in the same row have "0" and only when both columns in the same row have "0" the contents "0" in that row of Column D and F will be deleted?
I am doing a "text to columns" in a VBA script and each time it runs I get a "Do you wnat to replace contents of the destination cells" prompt. I will always say yes to this prompt. Is there something I can put into the code to avoid this prompt all together, again the answer will always be yes to the prompt.
My computer runs on Excel 2003 but my Laptop is on Excel 2000, the problem is I have the below code on a spreadsheet I wrote on my Computer which runs fine but when I open it on my Laptop it comes up with a run time error it doesn’t like the clear contents line. If some one could explain to me why it is happening and how to get round the problem so it will work in Excel 2003 and 2000.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Application. ScreenUpdating = False Sheets("data").Visible = xlVeryHidden Sheets("Incidents").Visible = xlVeryHidden Sheets("Front Sheet").Select Range("A17:S17").Select Selection.ClearContents Open1.Show Range("A17").Select Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I cannot "BOLD" the contents of cells in my spreadsheet by clicking "B" on the menu bar. However I can do so by clicking on "Format - Cell - Font" and then using the selecting the Bold option. I wonder why this happens.
I am working on a sheet where I want the contents of cells D1:D10 appear if cell A1 has a text in it and the contents of cells D1:D10 disappear if cell A1 is blank. What is the right conditional formatting formula for this.
I have a dropdown list in the range E17:E91 containing a list, and two of the values in the list are "DI" and "LTC". What I need to happen is if either of these are selected, the corresponding cell in column F needs to have it's contents cleared. Ex. if in E17 the value is ever either DI or LTC, cell F17 gets contents cleared. if column E contains ANYTHING ELSE, nothing happens. That's all, I've taken care of conditional formatting and data validation already. So even if data is pasted in the worksheet into column E it needs to recognize that and always act in real time.
I would like to do now would be to only copy the rows that also contain the word sold in column C. I guess that I could do this in two stages, first copying the rows based on the year then copy again based on the word sold in column C. It would be nicer to make a slight modification to my code and do it all in one step.
I'm using a macro to copy the results of a formula and paste the values only on another sheet. The result includes lots of "blank" rows. I have another macro to get rid of the empty rows and move the information up.
It's not working because the "blank" rows aren't empty. Even though I paste values only, experimentation shows that the cells that appear blank return a false to the ISBLANK test with a length of 0.
So now I think I need a macro to run after the pastespecial command to look for cells within a range with a length of zero and delete the contents of those cells, but leave alone anything with a length of >0.
I am brand new to the idea of using VBA, but I have successfully cobbled together some stuff and can usually modify things to work.
It seems I need to maybe use some sort of IF statement along with a LEN and ClearContents. I don't want to delete the blank cells, just make them truly empty so that all of my actual data stays where it should, and my delete empty rows macro works correctly.
I did a search and see some info on clearing contents of columns or rows, or clearing contents based on the content of other columns or rows, but I'm unsure of how to tell it to search each cell within a range and clear the contents of 0-length cells to make them truly empty.
this is my first post in this great forum. let me start talking about what I need, I used to convert some statement from PDF to XLS format for my work purpose. sometimes I am facing a problem that some text in the statement will come in more than one row, actually I need it to come in one cell but it is coming in several rows that mean, if I want to sort or filter my data, I will lose some important data. What do I want???
I want a macro to merge the contents of selected cells and put it in the first cell of the selected cells then clear the other cells. I will use this macro for the following cases: Case 1- assume we have this data in any sheet.
B1=How C1=are D1=you? ( all without any space )
after selecting the said cells and applying this macro, the result will be:
B1=How are you? ( one space only between the content of the selected cells ) C1=D1=empty
I have a macro that imports results from a website. I want the macro to continue working but every now and then when the format of the webpage changes I get the message 'Do you want to replace the contents of the destination cells?'. Is there anyway I can get my macro to not show the pop up box and to automatically choose OK (I do want to replace the contents of the destination cells) instead?
I want cells containing the same contents to fill with the same color. But I want different colors for each matched set. I know I can match text to a color, but I may have 100 possible items and to create matches for all 100 would be time consuming and there are not enough colors. I just want random colors picked by excel to create some visual separation to similar cells.
