How Long Do Variables Keep Their Values In VBA?

Jan 27, 2009

I noticed that sometimes if I stop a macro midway (completely stop, not just pause), and then re-run it from the beginning, my variables will still hold the value they were last set to right before i stopped the macro. But sometimes, this doesn't happen - the variables reset.

I'm wondering what defines how long the variable's value are held for? I'm considering writing a macro that can hold variables so that even after the macro is finished, the user can re-run and the variables will still be available. This is useful mostly for text boxes in userforms that will probably have the same values the next time the user runs, but the user can still change them if he wants.

Long Text String With Embedded Variables

Apr 17, 2007

I am trying to automate a report writing spreadsheet in which the text never changes in the cell (up to and over 50 words long).

Is there any way in which the figures within that text could be linked to another cell and change accordingly.

For example: a particular cell might contain the following which never changes apart from the figures:

"the performance of the fund was (B5) followed by a change in the index of (B6)...........the performance of the irish stocks was (A19) etc etc."

I know something can be done in formatting but for very long text would this be impracticle?

Extract Values From Long String?

Mar 13, 2014

In a long string of characters and values, for example in B2:

Cos PGA 3.00 8.98 0.75 Cis TAK 1.00 2.99 0.25 Gsr PAM 14.00 41.92 0.82 Art GUN 3.00 8.98 0.18 Tlu NRG 9.00 26.95 0.33

I want to extract the second value after the specific string which is in in column headers C1, D1,E1...:


so for the example the result should be 8.98 in cell C2; 2.99 in cell D2; no value in E2; 41.92 in F2...

I attached a sheet with the table.

Iterating Through Different Values Of Variables

Oct 28, 2011

I have four variables a1, a2, cr and s in the macro below.


Public Const cr As Long = 4
Sub Mode5()
'4 are the constants you can vary to test different scenarios
Const a1 As Single = 0.1
Const a2 As Single = 0.4
Const s As Single = 3

It is easier if think of these variables in this format (a1, b1, cr, s).

So taking the code above as an example they can be written as (0.1, 0.4, 4, 3).

Ultimately I would like to try different combinations of these values to get a desired outcome. Currently I change the values manually each time.

Variable a can range from 0.1 - 2.5 (25 numbers)
Variable b can range from 0.1 - 2.5 (25 numbers)
Variable s can range from 1 - 10 (10 numbers)
Variable s can range from 1 -10 (10 numbers)

write some code to iterate through different combinations of these variables. I presume it would be some sort of loop which increments each variable a certain amount each time until the max value is reached.

For example the first combination would be (0.1, 0.1, 1, 0.1) and the next would be (0.2, 0.1, 1, 0.1) and the next (0.3, 0.1, 1, 0.1) etc and the last one would be (2.5, 2.5, 10, 10).

Altogether there can be 25 x 25 x 10 x 10 = 62,500 combinations.

Values Subject To Many Variables

Sep 28, 2006

I have a spreadsheet where in the past we have used a turnover period (always 12 yrs) as our constant to calculate our average factors. For example we use formulas to calculate up to 12 years and the we just restart at year 13- providing that one of the formulas does not return a 0 value. I need to be able to choose our turnover period- say 8 years and have the values start then but in the next prokect I may need a 10 year turnover.

Automate Populating Values In Two Variables?

Jun 5, 2013

The attached table mimics the massive table that I am working with.

I wanted to populate values of two variables.

For e.g., I wanted to populate the yellow portion of the table with the value "A"; blue portion with the value "B"; Green portion with the value "3/1/1993" and so on (different colors were used to aid my question only, there are no such colors in the actual table).

I have about 700 such portions to be fill in.

My approach: I just started to copy and paste manually which is tedious.

Question: Would there be any automated way to do this?

Accessing Values Of 'alphanumeric' Variables

Jan 3, 2010

I have declared a number of string variables named "hlpYear1", "hlpYear2" etc in the 'Worksheet_SelectionChange' function. "hlpYear1" contains the appropriate text to display if the selected language is English, "hlpYear2" is for French and so on. I was hoping that I would be able to use VBA to display the appropriate text by way of a 'For..Next' statement along the following lines:

Variables Loosing Values Between Subs

Nov 30, 2006

trying to get it to put the 2 variables into 2 cells in the worksheet for the moment!

The Forms code is:

Private Sub CmdCancel_Click()
Unload frmMsgBox
Exit Sub
End Sub

Private Sub CmdOK_Click()
End Sub

It always fills the cells with False and blank, no matter what buttons are pressed (except cancel), so all I can think is that the information isn't feeding back through properly from the form.

Passing Global Variables / Values To A Procedure

Mar 24, 2014

I understand the use of Global variables in the sense that they can be used throughout the project. However, I also understand (I think) that unless these variables (like any) are released from memory or the values changed by some other means they will retain their values when accessed inside a another procedure regardless of where the calling procedure is Public or Private. This seems to be a convenient way to access the values of these variables without having to make ByVal or ByRef declarations in the procedure calling process.

Firstly, is my understanding of this correct? (That the variables and associated values) can be accessed from within a calling procedure without formally passing them in?

Second, even if this is true is it considered to be bad practice because the variables will store the last known value which may or may not be correct if you aren't paying attention to how the variable was last set.

Assign Name To Range Using Variables And Cell Values

May 23, 2009

For example, I have the numerical value "400" in R1C2 and that value would be used in the name "D400" which is to be assigned to R1C1:R5C2.

The code I have is:

Range("R" & DRow & "C1:R" & DRow + 4 & "C2") = "D" & Cells(DRow, 2).Value

but is throwing up the error:

"Run-time error '1004':
Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed

DRow increases dependant on other variable data.

Also, am I right to be using R1C1 instead of A1, or can the same be achieved using A1 references? If so, I think I may not be able to see the wood for the trees.

Loop Through Range & Use Cell Values In Variables

Aug 30, 2006

I have 2 worksheets. The first sheet has data of which some needs to be copied to a second worksheet. The trigger is a value found in column E. If a match is found, then a copy statement needs to be built. The values in F, G & H are the values to be used in the copy statement. The content of cell H may be numbers or letters or both.

What is the correct format of the copy statement?

Dimension all variables
Dim RowPointer As Long
Dim wbContrib As Workbook
Dim wbMaster As Workbook
Dim SheetName As String
Dim target_sheet As String
Dim target_cell As String
Dim Target_value As String
Dim CellAddr
' Initialize variables
Set RowPointer = 1
Set wbMaster = “Master.xls”

Linking Macros & Pass Values/Variables

Oct 18, 2006

I have a worksheet which I've set to read-only, I am trying to get it to pull in information from external worksheets. I've created a Macro that will automatically bring in the data however it will only go into a pre-defined cell/row. I have another Macro which looks up the next available row (which is where I want the data to go) but can't get it to link into the macro's. In short, Macro1 brings in data, Macro2 finds next available row, Macro3 brings in another worksheet, Macro4 finds next available row etc etc.

Assign Formula Values Based On Variables

Jun 6, 2007

I have three variables; Independent variables x & y, and dependent variable z. x & y can take the values 1,2,3 and can equal each other z can also take on values 1,2,3 but can never equal x or y. I tried using if/and statements to solve this (see below), but I would have to do it for each case and it exceeds Excels embedded function limit.

Copy Table Values To Array Variables And Use Them In Another Sheet?

Nov 20, 2012

I have a query about using Array Variables in excel VBA. I have a set of lookup tables and a main data table. The data table will be downloaded everyday. I need to replace the ID's in the main table with actual data from the Lookup tables.

Main Data Table
Color Operator
005--325 005
004--326 004

Lookup Color
001 - Red
002 - Blue
003 - Green
004 - Violet
005 - White

Lookup Operator Table
323 - Operator 1
324 - Operator 2
325 - Operator 3
326 - Operator 4
327 - Operator 5
328 - Operator 6

I have a huge amount of data in the main table. So I can't use a lookup formula for automation. Rather I would like to use VBA to create array variables, scan and copy the lookup data into the array and replace the ID's in the main table.

Only that I am unable to achieve this using arrays. I am very basic in executing code related to Arrays.

Passing Variables And Values Between Sheet Code And Module Code

I have some buttons in different sheets in an excel file, each button has its own code, that is the reason I can not move the code related to each object to another location (sheet or module).

And I have one piece of code in Module1 (Auto_load) in order to execute automatically this routine every time file is opened. Inside "auto_load" routine I initialize some values of some check buttons,options buttons and positions of some objects in diferent sheets, but I can not pass the value of variables between Module and Sheet's code even when I declare as public variables and/or function.

Function Back Variables: Function Give Two Or More Output Variables

Jul 27, 2006

Can a Function give two or more output variables. e.g.

Sub a()
x = 5
result = Y(x)
End Sub

Function Y (x As Integer) As Integer
Dim B
B = ... * x
Y = ... * B

this will give back Y as a result. But if I want to get 2 or more output variables (let's say I need to get also B into sub) from one function, how should I do that?
I need this because function works with large matrix and I want to extract some values appeared in between.

Defining Variables Using Variables

I'm trying to loop through a range in excel from access, checking where the titles (in Excel row 1) match with the fields (in a recordset in Access that is passed to the function) - and where they do, I want to dimension a variable to hold the column number - I'm not sure it's possible, but I'd be interested to know either way. The line I'm asking about is at the bottom of the code - the rest of the code is just to give context...

Long IF(AND Statements)...

Apr 8, 2009

I've attached the workbook to make this easier. If you look at the file master.xls you will see 2 tabs. On the Tool tab I've highlighted some blue cells and some rose cells. If you look at the blue cell G68 there is a long formula that reads up to 3 cells from the Specs tab and then plugs in the correct data from the blue cells on the right side of the Tools tab page. I need the rose cell F69 to do the same thing only with the data from the rose cells to the right. When I try and duplicate the fromula from G68 into F69 I get errors. I hope I made this clear enough. The formula in G68 is long, is there a way to shorten it? Also sometimes in this workbook when I try to type a formula in a cell I get the text I typed instead of the formula. For example I might enter in A1, =B2. Instead of getting the data from B2, it reads =B2. I've looked at how the cell is formatted but can't get it to work.

How Long / Big Should A Module Be

Jun 17, 2014

In my Personal Macro book, I have 2 modules, one for Functions and one for "macros".

Is there a point where it's more efficient to make a new module (or is the opposite true and it's more efficient if they are all in one)?

Does having a plethora of sub routines in a module slow down excel even though the routines are short? or would having them in different modules slow it down more?

Reset Value Of Long?

Jun 2, 2009

I know that a variable of string type is equal to "" before it's assigned a value. So I reset the value of strings to empty (i.e. "") when I want them clear of a value. I also know that variables of Variant Type are equal to NULL when they are unassigned so I reset them to NULL when I want to clear them of a value.

But what about a Long? When you declare a variable of Long Type or Int Type or Double Type, what is it's inital value when empty and unassigned. I assume it's not 0 since 0 is an actual number.

I want to reset my lng variable and clear it of a value. So I'm wondering what should I set to... How can i do this?

UDF, For A Long If Stmt

Aug 10, 2008

I need to build a udf that simplifies a 10 nested if statement . i could achieve my task by using a if and statement, but it would exceed the 7 nested limit.

I have company names in column A, industry code in column b and four varibles in column C,D,E,F . The g column would be a weighted average of columns C,D,E,F. The weighted average score would have the logic of:

If the industry code is equal to "TE", then (C2*.7)+(D2*.1)+(E2*0)+(E2*0)
if the industry code is equal to "EN", then (C2*.3)+(D2*.3)+(E2*.3)+(E2*.1)
if the industry code is equal to "SF", then (C2*.4)+(D2*.6)+(E2*0)+(E2*0)
if the industry code is equal to "H", then (C2*.1)+(D2*.1)+(E2*.1)+(E2*.7)
if the industry code is equal to "MM", then (C2*.1)+(D2*.2)+(E2*.3)+(E2*.4)
if the industry code is equal to "EE", then (C2*0)+(D2*.0)+(E2*.8)+(E2*.1)
if the industry code is equal to "ENG", then (C2*0)+(D2*0)+(E2*.5)+(E2*.5)
if the industry code is equal to "ETT", then (C2*0)+(D2*.2)+(E2*.3)+(E2*.5)
if the industry code is equal to "HH", then (C2*0)+(D2*.9)+(E2*.1)+(E2*0)
if the industry code is equal to "HHW", then (C2*.7)+(D2*.3)+(E2*0)+(E2*0)
