I have an embedded chart on my worksheet.I can select a cell behind the chart using the keyboard arrow keys.Is there a way of doing this using a mouse click,so that I know which cell i am pointing to/choosing?
I have a range of unlocked cells (B5:S10) that users enter data in. This sum of this data is then charted. The formula (sum) in a cell equals zero even when there is no data entered by the user. This zero is then charted.
I need to be able to plot the zeros if the user enters zeros but not plot the zero if the cells are blank.
What I was attempting to do is to use the worksheet change event to add the formulas to a cell so that the chart does not plot the value until something was added.
In my change event I need to know that a cell in the range (B5:S10) was changed and that if it was D7 (for example) that I need a formula enterd in D11 [=SUM(D5:D10)]. If it was I5 then the formula would have to go in I11 [=SUM(I5:I10)].
I am using an event macro to trigger a set of calculations. In the spreadsheet, users have a choice of 3 input cells to work out an answer; these 3 cells work out the same cost from different angles depending on the variables available to the user.
Users only ever need to fill in one of the three cells to work out the answer as the event macro I designed, should (upon input by the user), work out the remaining two input cells using logical arguments.
The macro and calculation work fine, except in the event of users amending a value in an input cell previously updated; in other words, if all 3 cells contain a value and 1 of them is being changed by a user.
The issue: I need the event macro to recognise the location of the last change made by the user in order to determine which 2 of the 3 cells need to recalculate. However, users will invariably press enter or tab etc... upon making changes and this has caused me issues so far.
What I have tried already:
1) running another event macro "on selection change" to record elsewhere in the model all cell selections as and when the user interacts with the model
EFFECT: it made the "on change" event macro very slow and clunky; so I need to avoid 2) declaring a range as set r = activecell.address
EFFECT: this did not work as the active cell's address would in fact be the address on the last cell; e.g. the one selected further to pressing enter (often the one directly below the cell recently changed)
A solution to add to the existing "on change" event macro that identifies the last edited cell
Is there a formula in Excel that returns the active cell address (ie dynamically). Excel updates the activecell address in the Name Box dynamically as you make a selection but I cannot find a standard formula to access it. I know I can achieve this with code using the selection-change event but this action then disallows use of the Undo button - which I specifically want to avoid. Perhaps there is an add-in available?
I need some sort of code to check through a selection of cells in a column and make those cells "zero" whose value is equal to the first cell in the selection. e.g., let's say I have a key value entered in cell e6 = "2.99".
E6 F6 G6 H6 I6 J6 2.99 5.25 2.99 2.00 2.99 5.00
So the macro should be able to check the value in cell E6 (i.e. = 2.99) against values in cells from F6: J6 and any cell having the same value as cell E6 (2.99) should be made = 0. So, in the above example cells G6 & I6 will have "0" value after the code has been executed. I have close to 50 rows going down starting from cell E6. For example, E7 has a value which has to be checked against the range starting from F7 to J7 and so on and so forth.
1st post so hope that title isn't too vague. Using VBA, I have a macro that will find a column based on a week number and add in a new column. It will then offset the ActiveCell down one. I now need the macro to SUM all values in that row to the left of the ActiveCell. My original thought was to use:
Unfortunately, there are gaps in the data field, blank cells that should count as zero value. How can I highlight all cells to the left, from whichever column the active cell is in, through to column B?
whenever the active cell is within a given range, highlight the cell on the same row in column S (by changing its interior colour). This should occur each time the active cell is changed, whether by cursor keys or mouse. The effect would be similar to the row and column highlights at left and top of the worksheet.
This action should be restricted to one sheet in the workbook.
I have got stuck on one piece of my code and having trouble fixing... Overall I am trying to find variable station name in cell L2 of Sheet 2 in Sheet 1 and then select and copy the data from the data in "cell L2 of Sheet 2" to the last entry of that row. I have attached an example test spreadsheet of the data and a macro is within Sheet 1 called test1. Please note that cell L2 in Sheet 2 will always be different station name and the station list in Sheet 1 will change with differing station name.
The code I am using is:
The code that is not working and bringing up an error is:
Column D contains a complete address eg 60 Braugham Road, Wallasey, Merseyside CH46 1LP
I would like to be able to extract the postcode into column E, and then the address into columns F, G, H etc so that I can use the data for mailmerge docs. Is there a forumula or a macro that can be used to identify and extract the postcode? The postcode will usually be either one or two letters with one or two numbers, then a number and two letters. eg it might be as above or B6 9XF etc.
Assume the following list of addresses are all in separate cells of a single column (A1-A4). I just need the formula to extract the street addresses, and then a separate formula to extract the zip codes.

I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).
So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.
This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.
So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have
VB: ="F" & (A1)
This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.
Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)
I need to identify rows where the contents of a given cell are equivalent to the cell below. I have managed to get this working based on iterating through the cells and selecting them both for cutting.
However it doesn't work effectively: It seems to be leaving blank lines in the original sheet and further fails after the first execution. I would be grateful for any suggestions on a good method to perform the following operations: (1)to compare the cell with the cell below I have used
If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then
(2)to act on the rows for the two connected rows
' Loop through rows
Dim TheExtract As String Dim cell As Range
'Application. ScreenUpdating = False For Each cell In Worksheets("Sheet 1"). _ Range("A1", Worksheets("Sheet 1").Range("A65536").End(xlUp)) TheExtract = cell If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then cell.Rows("1:2").EntireRow.Select Selection.Cut Sheets("Test").Select ActiveCell.Offset(3, 0).Rows("1:1").EntireRow.Select Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown End If Next cell 'Application.ScreenUpdating = True
I tried very hard to design a leave roster for user to mark their leave application. The criteria are as follows:
1. 4 applications per date 2. a region of worksheet (i.e. "A2 to H20) will be defined for users to "click" on the cells (within the defined region) to mark their application. 3. once a cell is clicked (i.e. marked), it cannot be altered. 4. each click will automatically increase the total by 1.
I got the following code to deal with the situation but user can still click on any cell outside the region (in fact I fail to define the region).
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim m ad = Mid(ActiveCell.Address, 2, 1) m = Range(ad & 24).Value 'here a formula "CountA(A2,A20)" will be place in the cell (24, c).......................
I searched and I keep finding something that's not quite what I'm looking to do so I think I'm missing something really simple.
Let's say that I want each cell in col b to be the sum of 5 plus whatever value is in the cell adjacent to it on the left (col).
I know that you can just write a formula in each cell like...
b1 will be =sum(a1+5) b2 will be =sum(a2+5)
... but is there a shortcut so that you don't have to write out the actual cell address for each one?
Meaning - is there a predefined name or something that represents the cell to the left or right so you can just use that instead, allowing you to just copy paste the same formula all the way down the column? Something like...
b1 will be =sum(left+5) b2 will be =sum(left+5)
... where "left" represents whatever value is in the cell to the left of that particular cell?
I have a formula (AL15) to determine the address of the last column with a value greater than 1. =COUNTIF(C16:AC16,">=1")+2. I then use this column value to aquire the Absolute row "15" and the determined column=(ADDRESS(15,AL15,4)). This returns to me a Column value and row value that I need to use as a refference. How can I convert this returned value to a reference.
If a cell changes to true i want it to send an email to the address that is in another cell,
For example if F5 CHANGES to true then send email to address in G5,
From here i can add in the subject line, and body i just cant figure out how to get it to send to a specific email address based on the cell value, and also only do it once, when it changes to TRUE rather than everytime the sheet is active, so i would require a macro to constantly be running, or run of off the cell when it changes
I've a sheet that presents the profitability of sales locations in a geographic layout (similar to Tables in a restaurant), each sales location is a cell, with roughly 1,600 locations presented. Each location is colour coded based on performance / measure, in a basic thermographic way [e.g. dark blue for very poor, solid red for high performance] with users being able to change metrics and re-colour cells accordingly.
The sheet is already information rich, but I'm wanting to detect the cell address directly under the pointer and populate a text box or other cell based on the value in the cell directly below the mouse pointer.
My question is; Is there a simple way of detecting the mouse position on the XL Grid? nb. Want to avoid having to activate cell beneath pointer.
How can you access a cell's value via a vb variable that contains the cell's address. I have a vb variable named cellAddress (string) that contains "$A$1" and I want to assign the contents of what cellAddress points to another VB variable - how do i Do this?
e.g. if cellAddress = "$a$1" and A1 contains "xyz", I would like to assigne "xyz" to a new vaiable by referencing just cellAddress??? Also - Can anyone reccomend a good Excel VB book? A book that maybe stresses the VB language rather then a cook-book approach.
I have this certain value "Y" in all the sheets. In the summary sheet, I would like to get the cell address for this value in a given sheet. I know that you can get cell address using CELL worksheet function. However, for that you need to know the reference to the cell, which is what I am interested in.
I tried Hlookup to get column #. But couldn't figure out how to convert the number to letter so that I can use MATCH to get row # and then finally, index or address function to what I am looking for.
If someone knows how to convert column # to column letter OR knows a better/easier way to obtain cell reference/address based on cell value,
I have a form that loads and depending on the word selected in the drop down the following code loops through cells Q2:AC2 until it finds the word in one of those cells (the word will always be in one of the cells)
Code: For Each c In Range("Q2:AC2").Cells If c = period Then c.Select
The active cell it finds will always change, i know I need something to code the active cell back but I don't know what it should be.
Code: Dim selection As Range Dim minimum As Integer Sub Sequence() Set selection = Range(Cells(4, 3), Cells(6, 5)) minimum = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(selection) ' and now I need an address of that smallest number for this: ' IF (column number + row number) > value of that smallest number ' do End Sub
It's not exactly the program I need, but it's simple.
