How Would I Get A Cell Value Into VBA To Run This Properly

Sep 3, 2009

' Justin SQL Server Connection
' In VBE you need to go Tools References and check Microsoft Active X Data Objects 2.x library

In the Server_name = "SRVREG1" in red above, i would like it to reference a cell...say A30. How is this done?? so that if im on the worksheet called Title on A30 i type in SRVREG1 and the VBA knows what to do from there.

Cell Values Not Being Shown Properly?

Oct 1, 2013

some Excel columns (see attachment). A1 is set to =C1 and the formula is dragged down, relatively referencing column C. Column B applies a formula to the values in Column A.

If I go into the formula bar for cells in A and push enter, the spreadsheet shows the correct value and I can then push enter in the adjacent Column B cell to solve. But, how can I get these data to display properly automatically?

Cell Dropdown Option Not Functioning Properly

Jul 6, 2014

Say in column A, I have the values 1,2,3. If I set cell B1 equal to A1 and drag down, I'd expect this:

1: 2 2
2: 3 3
3: 4 4

But all the columns in B just say 2. What function did I accidentally change?

Distance Between Xy Coordinates Not Converting Properly With Absolute Cell Use

May 14, 2014

I have a spread sheet that I am finding distance between xy coordinates and then trying to convert that distance into miles.

VB : =If(E2+F2=0,"",SQRT((E2-B2)^2+(F2-B3)^2))/1.6093

However, the division part only works in the first cell in the column correctly and then does not work in the rest of the column cells correctly. The difference in the code is that the first cell has no "$" in it and the rest of the cells in the column have the "$" in them.

VB : =If(E2+F2=0,"",SQRT(((E2-B$2)^2)+(F2-B$3)^2))

Date Does Not Display Properly?

May 6, 2013

I have formatted cells to date but when I enter in a date of 020413 (Feb 04, 2013) my reslut shows as 11/20/55. I have a coworker who is having the same problem (but hers displays even a different date) so was wondering if there is a setting in excel that I don't know about.

Sorting A-Z Not Working Properly

Sep 3, 2013

I am including an attached file for reference.

The file is sorted A-Z, but if you scroll down towards the bottom, you will see that some values are out of order. Both instances of University of Central Florida and University of North Dakota are out of place.

University of Central Florida should be between University of California and University of Colorado.

University of North Dakota should be between University of Colorado and University of Southern Mississippi.

VBA Library Not Registering Properly

Jun 28, 2013

I'm fiddling with a C# library, trying to learn about including homemade libraries in my VBA code. I've written a simple library, compiled it, and did the COM registration. When I open the VBE and start up a new module, I'm able to find the library in the Tools | References dialog box, and I check it to include it. When I write the code, however, autocomplete doesn't give me the option of any of the definitions I've written into the library, and when executed, I'm getting a "User-defined type not defined" error.

Macros Not Recording Properly

Oct 31, 2013

I have an excel file emailed to me everyday. It is a daily tracking of our fleet and I manipulate it before printing it and giving it to management. I dont know why when I try to record the macro and then use it it hides all columns.

The report has columns A-N. I hide B, F-G, I, M-N. When recording I hide multiple columns across.

I have done similar macros with other reports, no problem.

Filtering Does Not Always Work Properly

Jun 23, 2006

I have a user that is experiencing a strange filtering issue within MS Excel 2000. He is working with a database of about a dozen columns and nearly two thousand five hundred rows. Two columns that are worked on for filtering proposes are the Job # and Job Name columns. Initially, the sorting works between the both meaning if we want to find a particular job by either the name or the number it is accomplished. However, once we cut (about a couple of dozen rows) and paste a section of rows from the bottom to the very top of all the entries we discover that a number of jobs do not appear within the filter (once it has been applied again). Is there some type of refreshing that is needed? I have saved the file after the changes.

Calculating Formula Not Working Properly

Nov 15, 2008

I am trying to work out an excel workbook for calculating family recipes. I have gotten most of it figured out but am having a problem with one thing. When the serving size of an item is 8 oz & the recipe calls for 14.5 oz the only way I can get it to work properly is to enter 1.75 in the serving size.

But I would like (actually need) to be able to enter the 14.5 and have it calculate the calories correctly - since sometimes the amount to be added to the recipe may be 15 ounces and the serving size is 8 ounces etc....

Rank Formula Not Working Properly

Oct 7, 2009

I have a rank formula that is seemingly erroring out on certain cells - indiscriminately. I have tried and tried to figure this out for myself but this is beyond my knowledge.

Only on some cells is the rank not working and returning a "-" (the error result).

I want the rank to use absolute numbers, so that it will rank according to variance or percentage (regardless of +/-). I am also using another cell (R1) to tell the rank what column to use.

As you can see there are a few entries, both + & -, that are not being included in the rank - for reasons beyond me.

Combining 2 Macros To Loop Properly

Nov 6, 2008

This code calculates a value for column K when you punch in a number in column J (in any rows 17 to 116, separately). The first problem is that when you delete a value out of J, the value stays in K for some rows (where it should only contain a value if J does). I'm guessing it has something to do with the triggering event that I put in bold. Secondly, I need to be able to protect row K at all times from deletion or entering another value. It ONLY should calculate a value based on J. So I need to use the module (below the code) and I want to integrate it into the code or call it in a module. It's not working properly because it prevents ANY and ALL changes, even the ones caused by new values entered in J (which should be allowed). It should only prevent deletion or manually entering a value on the worksheet. So the bottom line is that when you enter a value into J, unless column E says "Annuity" it will calculate using the formula given. If you delete J, K should go away as well. And at no time can you delete or manually change K. And when you switch values in E, it must reloop to check if it says "Annuity" or not, and if not, it must clear J (which clears K).

And lastly, this thing is brutally slow, so maybe there's an easier way to write it. Sorry for all the detail, but I think it's an easy fix for someone who knows programming, but i don't know how to put it together! NML Inventory is the Activesheet.

Exit Sub Property Is Not Working Properly!!

Jun 22, 2009

I have the following two codes on a userform, The first code performs two steps:

The first step is running the second code (MyDate), which is used for checking the entries in the userform textboxes and if there is any wrong entry a message box appears then it exits sub.

However, what happens when it finds any wrong entry is that it displays the msgbox and instead of exiting sub as it is requested in the (MyDate) code, it resumes running and moves to the second step and adds 1 to ComboBox1 ListIndex.

How Would I Properly Setup A 2D Coordinate System?

Nov 20, 2009

I am setting up a spreadsheet to be able to calculate loads on spread footings. The thing is the footings may be as small as a 2 x 2 or as large as a 6 x 6 or any combination inbetween so I need a coordinate system (to the nearest inch with a max of 1800 inches) to be able to assign each spread footing to a certain spot in the system with which I can calculate the soil stresses.

I intend to make this as idiot proof as possible for anyone who uses this spreadsheet so I was going to set it up as in the attachment where a user can input each individual load on each footing and the distance between it and its neighbors. The numbers are just random values with in each footing and feet between each one. Naturally most people would probably begin data entry in the upper left footing first so I was going to make that the origin unless for coding purposes the lower left would be best.

In this case the upper left footing would be 0,0 and the footing to its right 20,0 and the one farther right 55,0 (20+35) and so forth.

Calculate Exponentials Properly (right To Left)

Sep 6, 2005

It undoubtedly would, but don't hold your breath. Doing so would break
tens of thousands of existing applications.

It would also make exponentiation the only operator that worked
right-to-left. That alone would make things extremely confusing for

Operator precedence and direction of application is neither correct nor
incorrect - it's convention. And scientific convention is not the
convention that Excel was designed for. A frequent example is


XL will always calculate this as a positive number (for integer n's)
since negation has a higher precedence than exponentiation. This seems
counterintuitive to most of those that have commented on it in these
groups. But it's consistent with XL's published specs.

Formula Is Not Showing Properly Date

Jan 9, 2007

I'm trying to have a fixed date entered into column B when data is entered into column D. Here's the formula in column B:

=IF(D3="", IF(B3=";", FixedDate(),B3))

When I enter data into cell D, I get the following result in B:


Taking this a step further, even if I do a "control + ;" I still get a value of
0-Jan-00 in the cell but the formula bar shows me "=1/9/2007'. ??

I've gone through all of the options but cannot fix this error. I have two spreadsheets using this formula. The first one worked fine last year but now I have this error in it. I also started to create a new sheet and still have the same error.

Two Formulas Repeating That Won't Fill Properly

Jul 21, 2009

Here is my dilemma, I have two formulas that reference another sheet, my example shows it more clearly...
...............Column E
Row 11......=sheet1!F16+sheet1!I16
Row 12......=sheet1!G16
Row 12......=sheet1!F17+sheet1!I17
Row 12......=sheet1!G17

Is there a macro or a formula I can use on the remaining 4000 rows that will keep this pattern while maintaining the formulas above?
