How To Set Default Sheet

Sep 1, 2013

I had set up a long time ago a macro enabled sheet in the XLSTART folder and Template folder. It used to work where any file I opened, if I clicked new sheet, the data from that file would be in sheet2. Now for some reason it's not showing up anymore and just a blank sheet appears.

Default Date Value

Jun 5, 2009

How can I set the value of a cell to give the current date when that cell is clicked or given focus. I want A5 to show as blank, nothing there, until I click the cell, or somehow select the cell, and then have it show the the current date. If I want that date I hit tab or enter and it will record it.
If I don't want to record anything i can arrow past it and it will not record anything. If I want to change it I double click or click again(If I'm in the cell already) and I can type over or just put in the date I want.

However If the user records a date in that cell and goes back to that cell do not record the default current date on tab or enter it most be double clicked in order to change it. This is a safety that they don't tab to it and past it and have it changed by mistake. Once a date is recorded they have to double click to change it.
This is not for just one cell but for the range of cells in colum A starting on A5.

How To Set ComboBox Default Value

May 28, 2009

I want the combobox cmbBottle to show the second item in its list when the userform shows. The code below achieves this. However, after executing cmbbottle.listindex=1, the program jumps out of the initialization and goes to Private Sub cmbBottle_change() and then executes others subs called under it. I don't want this.

Is there a way to set the combobox to a default, startup display, without triggering the cmbBottle_change event?

(I have looked under the Properties window of combobox in the form view mode and can't see how to set it's value there.)

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() ...

Set Default Version

Aug 23, 2007

As per title, I have both Excel 2003 & 2007 installed - I need to set 2003 as the default for opening xls files when double-clicking but can't seem to override 2007 which wants to hog all the action. I've been through the File Types menu and selected the 2003 version of Excel as the default, but it doesn't make the slightest difference.

How To Set Default To Open Or New For A Template

Dec 7, 2005

Somehow I have changed a default setting that I cannot figure out how to change back. I have various templates setup in a "Forms" folder. Normally I go to My Documents, find the template file and double click on it, and the appropriate program (usually either Excel or Word) starts and opens a copy of the template as a document. What happens now is that the program starts and the template itself opens. I have tried going to My Documents and right clicking on the file and what appears to be happening is that the default (highlighted) option is "Open" instead of "New" which is what the default used to be. How do I change it back?--

How To Change Default Row Height

Aug 18, 2006

inability to set a default row height and still allow the occasional row that requires more space (i.e., one of it's cells has multiple lines of wrapped text) to AutoFit if necessary.

Say you have the data shown in NormalSettings.png in an Excel file (see attachments) and you want to have a little more room between the shorter rows, but not have them all set as big as the expanded rows. One way to do this in bulk is to select the entire spreadsheet and set a fixed row height, but this chops off any cells that require more space than your default height (see FixedRowHeight20.png). The only way to fix this is to manually scan through your sheet and individually select all rows with cells that need more room than your preferred row height and AutoFit them (good luck if your spreadsheet is any size...) . If you try selecting the entire sheet and choose Format-Row-Autofit, you're back to the crowded display shown in 'NormalSettings.png'.

My workaround to this annoying problem is this: choose a column that you're not using (I just select the very last column in the sheet by holding down CTRL and pressing the right arrow until the screen stops moving) and highlight the entire column by selecting the column header. Then increase the font size for that column...voila, even your blank rows will now AutoFit to the new font size rather than the font size you are using for your data...effectively increasing your default row height without sacrificing AutoFit capabilities. I find that using 16 as a dummy font size makes my data (which is font size 10, Arial) look nicely spaced out, but experiment and try stuff until you find what you like!

Changing The Default Value Of A Cell

Oct 1, 2009

I've been asked to make an Excel spreadsheet for work that tracks each employee's gross earnings, deductions, and net earnings, as well as calculates the holiday pay. I'm mostly done, but I've run into a problem.

Holiday pay is 4% of the gross earnings. I've got gross earnings in column B, and the formula in the holiday pay column is =PRODUCT(BX,0.04), where X is the row (i.e. in row 4, it is =PRODUCT(B4,0.04).) However, if the cell in BX is empty, the holiday pay displays as 0.04. So for whatever reason, it is assuming that the value of an empty cell is 1. Now, I can solve this by manually entering 0 into every gross earning cell.

Restoring Default Tab Color In VBA

Oct 23, 2009

I don't believe this is an excel 2007-specific question, but if it is & should be relocated to a different forum, move or ask me to move it.

I'm writing a personal macro in excel 2007 (win xp pro) that uses a userform to change the sheet name and tab color. The problem is that my option to change the tab color to "None" doesn't actually restore it to the standard light-blue background and blue type.

Get Default Value From Cell For Inputbox

Oct 2, 2008

I am working on a production spreadsheet, and I'm trying to figure out the easiest way for my coworkers to enter data into the system. Each shift, we produce from 5-20 different varieties of chips, and we keep track of how much we've made of each. I've decided that a simple ADD and DEL button at the end of each row will work (unless anyone can think of something easier or better, let me know pls).

Cell G3:G30 is where data will be stored for each variety. The default value for each variety is stored in column C. I found a very basic macro that adds a value to a selected cell, but I wish for it to find the default quantity for the variety in that row (changes day to day as per our schedule), and add it to the value in column G. The DEL button will do just the opposite.

I have 3 worksheets that I need this macro in as well (days, afternoons, midnights), but I don't think that will be any problem. I've searched around for a solution, to no avail.
