Clear All Unprotected Cells?

Jul 25, 2014

I have a button, and I need a Macro that will cause it to clear all unprotected cells. I think I can figure out how to get it to clear an individual cell, and I suppose I could enter every cell I want cleared individually...but that might take awhile.

Is there a way to set up a Macro that will delete the contents of every unprotected cell? I guess I haven't tried it yet - if I protect the cells, will it not delete those? Also, there is a small image - I don't want that deleted either.

Clearing Unprotected Cells

Jul 19, 2002

I have a spreadsheet that has I have protected. On this sheet I have a button labeled Reset Form. When you click the button it it goes to each Unprotected Cell and deltes the contents. I created this by starting the macro and then tabbing to each and every cell and deleteing the contents I then ended the macro...

Is there a code that I can use for to clear all unprotected cells as opposed to creating the macro manually?

If they Cut and Paste something in the unprotected cells, the formulas get a REF#. There is no problem if they Copy and Paste. How can I prevent the REF# error without resorting to VBA?

Highlight 1st Listbox Item After Tab To Field

Jul 14, 2009

I have created a form, with a textbox and a listbox, that loads when the workbook opens.

As the listbox is the 2nd field on the form, I'd like for the 1st item in the listbox to be highlighted once the user tabs to this field from the textbox field, in the event that the 1st item is actually the item the user wants to select. Currently, once you tab to the listbox field, the listbox item has a dotted line around it (forgive my not knowing the correct term to use for this; I would guess the item has focus at this point, it's just not selected), but the item is not actually highlighted. If I use the arrow keys to scroll up or down, then the first item can ultimately actually be highlighted.

I've search this message board, but was unable to come up with a solution. I assume I must not have been using the best search terms.

Currently (a part of) the form's code is:

Dim txtbox_EmplName As String
Dim lbox_Div As String

I'm certain this must be simple, but I haven't been able to find a solution. What code would I need to add or change, and where?

Autofilter: Highlight Criteria Column/Field

Sep 15, 2006

When activating Autofilter in a wide table, the only way to determine which criteria field was selected is to try and identify which drop-down arrow has become blue. When working on a laptop, it is rather difficult to identify the difference between the black arrows and the blue ones. Is there a way to have a macro or event procedure that will cause the selected criteria field (or fields) change its background color (into yellow, for example)? This way, the yellow fields will "stand out" No more searching...

Free Form Textbox In Search Field

Feb 10, 2013

How can I allow users to either select the SKU from the dropdown menu, or to type in the SKU # in the dropdown menu (C5 through F5) and have it populate the data fields for that SKU when they press the 'Enter' key?

Currently using Data Validation ='KVM Comparison Data'!$B$4:$OP$4 and cell logic to allow the information to be pulled from a hidden tab =INDEX('KVM Comparison Data'!$D$2:$OP$65,MATCH('KVM Product Comparison'!$B6,'KVM Comparison Data'!$A$2:$A$65,0),MATCH('KVM Product Comparison'!C$5,'KVM Comparison Data'!$D$4:$OP$4,0))

In short, I want to keep it the way I have it, but allow users to also have the option of typing in a SKU and pull the data up that way. I know this is possible, I just can't figure out how to do it, while keeping my current solution in place as well.

Automatic Time Format In Form Field?

Mar 10, 2009

How can I have a form field automatically fill some aspects of the data that's input? I've seen it before, like a phone# field automatically including the dashes.

I would like to automatically include colons in a time field. So if I were to type "081500" (or even "81500"), it would complete it as "08:15:00".

Validate That A Field On A VB Form Is Filled Before The OK Button Is Executed

Mar 21, 2006

I have a Form that user fill in information on, once they click the OK button, excel is filled with the inserted text on the form in the correct cells.

My question is, how do I validate that they have actually entered data in some cells, which I want to make mandatory, and if they have not, prompt them (this could be a simple message box) to fill it in. Let them fill it, and once they click OK again, check again... until all the mandatory fields are filled, only then will the macro fill in the excel cells.

User Form Field Inserts Wrong Date Format

Mar 26, 2009

I have cobbled together (borrowing from examples I have found online because I don't know VBA) a form which inserts a date into a spreadsheet.

The trouble I have is that this date field is in USA date format and I need UK.

If I enter 03/01/2009 into the form, it appears in the spreadsheet as 01/03/2009. I have formatted these cells to display the month only and because of the way it was entered, the next column displays MAR instead of JAN.

Can I validate the input value in a form?

Convert Pdf To Xl Using Adobe Acrobat

May 29, 2005

I have tried many different ways to convert pdf to excel the best seems to be to highlight the data in adobe acrobat using the table/fomatted text tool >> right click >> save as ANSI.txt >> open with Excel. However, will only let me highlight a singel page in the document at a time My current document is 200 pages. Does anyone know how to beat this limitation or create a batch process?

btw, I have tried these utilities

They all failed at negative numbers formatted as such (200,000) The right parend is output to Col A The remainder is output to col B In addition, labels such as TJE 098789 Roth are output to three columns instead of 1.

Convert X Worksheets To Adobe Acrobat PDF

Jun 7, 2009

I have a workbook that consists of a number of worksheets, and a selection of these are updated regularly. Once updated the sheets are PDF'd using Acrobat 8 Standard to create a report, ready for mailing. To speed things I want to do this via a button click rather than going through the Acrobat interface and selecting the sheets to generate the document.

I have, as suggested here, recorded the action to create the report via Acrobat Distiller, including selecting the appropriate sheets. When I run the code, distiller treats the selected worksheets as separate files and subsequently tries to save them separately, ie 4 selected files - save prompt comes up 4 times.

a way to allow me to treat the selected sheets as one and therefore create one pdf consisting of all of the selected sheets.

my use of macros is usually limited to what I record.

Sub Print_PDF()
' Print_PDF Macro
' Macro recorded 06/06/2009 by MJ Cosker
Sheets( Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2")).Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, ActivePrinter:= _
"Adobe PDF on Ne05:", Collate:=True
End Sub

Import Part Of PDF Adobe Acrobat File

Apr 2, 2008

I get pdf files from my UPS carrier and need only a certain part from the text to import into my administration. Sure I can convert the pdf into text and import it into exel that way, save it into xls or csv and you are in but... is there a short cut? Since you can select and copy a part of a pdf file I wonder if it is may be possible to do so within a macro as well no? Is this a crazy question? because I could not find a similar question by searching the forums. May be I was searching for the wrong subject.
