How To Access Selected Text In Cell Through VBA

Apr 19, 2012

A cell is having some content eg. "This is MrExcel Forum". Now the user selects (By dragging the cursor or Shift + Arrow keys) - "is MrE".

Is there a way i can access only this selected data thru vba?

Something like when u select some text in a cell & right click > Look-up , the selected text shows up on the look-up box.

Fill Range Of Cells With Text When Listbox Option Selected - Clear When Not Selected

Jul 25, 2014

I am using this code to hide or unhide rows of text on another sheet:

VB:
Sub ProcessSheet1ChangeOnCellJ7(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim sAddress As String
Dim sValue As String

'Get the address of the cell that changed without '$' signs
sAddress = Target.Address(False, False)

[Code]....

When the "Not Pursuing" list box option is selected (in cell "J7" or "J8" in Sheet 1) I need to add (or over-write) "Not Pursuing" to the range of cells in column "B" (in the "Tasks" sheet), but only for that particular Goal, meaning a limited range of cells in column "B". If the "Pursuing - Show All Tasks" option is selected for a Goal then these same cells need to be blank so that the appropriate person can enter their name into the cell.

The purpose for adding "Not Pursuing" automatically to these yellow highlighted cells is that it will facilitate filtering of tasks by individual in the "Tasks" sheet..

Again I have tried several times to upload a sample file and am unable to, which I know makes it more difficult to solve. (Is there some common mistake people make? I know it's an allowed format and is very small in file size....)

Code solution can be entered directly beneath:

VB:
If Target.Value = "Not Pursuing" Then
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("29:29").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("30:48").EntireRow.Hidden = True

When User Enters Data Into One Cell - Selected Text Prints In Another Cell

Jun 20, 2014

I am trying to do is to make it so that users can enter data into my form (I have managed to create the form and am working on trying to figure out how to get the info entered into the form to appear in my worksheet) and then the data will cause the information to, basically, compile sentences that I want to appear in one of three cells at the bottom of the worksheet.

Essentially, at this point in time, the end goal is to make 3 cells that contain text. Eventually, this text will be indexed elsewhere, but that is for the next person to deal with. I am creating a prototype that I want to present as a process improvement.

So, when the user selects 3 in cell D7 I want the text "Customer purchased 3 Widgets at $20 each." to print in cell 82B.
I also want the user to be able to copy and paste some customer records from another program directly into a cell in the form that will just print (unchanged) into one of these boxes, too.

Lastly, I want the user to be able to select checkboxes that will, when selected, print a comment that will print in two of these boxes. For example, if the user selects yes for cell D26 then I want the text "Customer not eligible for free shipping" to appear in both cells C82 and D82.

Elseif Statement In Vba: If The Selected Cell Falls Between 1/01/06 And 31/01/06 Then Jan Would Be Selected

Oct 10, 2006

Basically it is a if statement saying that if the selected cell falls between 1/01/06 and 31/01/06 then Jan would be selected. The end part is not a problem; Iím just not sure how to write the one line of code that would test if the cell falls between the two dates. I attemped to create it as shown in the code attached below but wasn't successful. I used an else if statement to test the other 11 months.

Sub test()
Dim SelectDate As Range
Set SelectDate = Range("SelectedDate")
If selectedDate >= 1 / 1 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 31 / 1 / 2006 Then
ActiveSheet. PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Jan"
ElseIf selectedDate >= 1 / 2 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 28 / 2 / 2006 Then

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Feb"........................

Format Text File For Excel To Import Into Access

Jan 12, 2010

I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.

First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.

I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access

Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.

2. On the Trusted Sources tab, click to select the Trust access to Visual Basic Project check box to turn on access.
3. Click OK to apply the setting. You may need to restart the application for the code to run properly if you automate from a Component Object Model (COM) add-in or template.

Can i do above changes at runtime (using some code)?

Text Of Button Selected

Dec 29, 2009

I have about 20 buttons on an excel worksheet. Is there a line of code that will tell me the text which was one was selected? The reason I am asking is because what is being passed into a module depends on what is selected. I know I can do a Case statement or if statements saying if this selected then this, if this selected then this, etc but was hoping for a one liner. This way it will be easy to maitain if other buttons are added as well.

Was thinking it is something like this but not sure how to say which button is selected.
strButtonName = Selection.Text

Bold Selected Text In A Column

Jan 30, 2007

Every week I have a worksheet compiled with large range of data, being input after many meetings done. The action-owner Names in open/close brackets are among the long text input in one Column (there are not more than 50 rows of data).

My problem is that in the Column every time I have to manually Bold-face the owner names in the cells that have their names, pressing F2 and Bold. Examples: ...(Wilfred)... or ...(Jacky/Joseph)... Can someone please help me with a code, say I can list out a fixed list of selected text and such code will be able to have these selected text (which is names in this case) in the cells bold-faced.

Copy Selected Text From TextBox

Mar 11, 2008

I have a userform in which I wish to use custom buttons for several commands. My userform users aren't going to be very computer skilled and may not know the CTRL+C or CTRL+V command so I am hoping to put in small image buttons representing each command to be able to copy (and paste if necessary) their selection in a TextBox on a MultiPage'd UserForm.

Is there any way of doing this? I've had a look through the forums and seen several examples of how it can be possible to copy and paste but not in the method I'd prefer to have it on this UserForm.

VBA - Userform: Click In A Text Box, Contents Is Selected

Mar 20, 2007

I'm building a userform (for the first time), and I'm working with a textbox control. I'd like to make it so that when the user clicks in that textbox, the contents is selected, so that if they begin typing, it will type over what is already there.

My question, specifically, is whether or not there is a property I can set to make this the default behavior, and if not - what event do I tie to this action? Is it the "Enter" event?

What I have now, which will probably be unacceptable to my users, is code that looks like this:

Private Sub tbName_Enter()
ActiveControl.Value = ""
End Sub
This makes the contents disappear, but I'd rather they stay there and just become "selected".

VBA To Copy Selected Cells To Clipboard With Text Data

Feb 12, 2008

Need aid in copying certain cells with text/labels to clipboard to format a body of email to be sent via Yahoo webmail, so I can paste it where needed.

I did a couple of Excel VBA's back in 2000 or so at last job but haven't seen/used VBA since.

Have a spreadsheet with customer data, (one cust per row) and wish to create something like the following in clipboard (in this example, assuming row 2 is the selected row)...I'll only be sending out one or two of these per day so nothing fancy is needed, just a way to avoid retyping critical data that could get mistyped.

--------------------
A8

Rental details for 2008

Customer Name : A2
Unit nbr : A3
Nbr of weeks : A4
Balance due : A5
--------------------

I'm using Office 2000 still...I've done some searching but results found seem to complicated for my situation or not quite close enough for me to see how to apply it.

VBA Code To Access Active Cell ONLY

Nov 10, 2008

I am trying to add a button on my spreadsheet that will give the person Access to one cell only. The cell in its normal state is Locked. The cell is ALWAYS in Column F of a sheet titled Master. The button is located on the sheet titled Master.

The real problem may arise in that once the person has access to the cell and they make their changes I need that cell to return to being Locked and the sheet once again Protected with Filtering.

Does this make sense to anyone? Can it be done and if so any suggestions?
