Identify The Cell Address Of Last Change Made In Sheet Using VBA?

Aug 13, 2012

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

Column D contains a complete address eg

Running Macro When Change Made To Worksheet

Feb 16, 2012

The intent of the code below is to run the marco HideCol when a change is made in cell C10. If I actually change the value in C10 it works. However, I have C10 linked to another worksheet (=anotherpage!A13). When the value changes, my macro is not executing.

Here is the code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim changed As Range
Set changed = Range("C10")
If Not Intersect(Target, changed) Is Nothing Then
End If
End Sub

Keep Hidden Sheet Made Visible As Active Sheet

Mar 2, 2007

I have a button on a sheet that runs a macro to unhide another sheet. That works, but I want the sheet made visible to remain forward. Instead, the button unhides the sheet and the sheet the button is on comes forward again. I am unable to figure how to keep the sheet made visible forward. Here is the macro 'as recorded'.

Sub UnhideSheet1()
Sheet2.Visible = True

Make Chart That Will Constantly Change As Different Selections Made By Person?

Jun 18, 2014

I have created a spreadsheet which uses data validation to allow a user to select a company, start Date, end date, and projected months in order to output different figures. I have attached a spreadsheet to this post in case that was hard to understand.

Since there is data validation, indexing, and matching going on, as different selections are made, various tables change as a result. What I mean as you open the example sheet and start messing around with the data validation boxes.

The problem I am encountering now, is creating a chart that will also keep changing as the user changes their selections in the data validation boxes. I am unsure if this is even possible, but I figured it was worth a shot to ask. On the example sheet, I have included a graph similar to the one I want, but it only contains data in a certain range of cells, rather than dynamically changing to accommodate whatever data is outputted.

Here is what I am looking for in the graph:

1. Whatever dates are selected by the user in the data validation boxes, along with the projected dates will be on the x-axis.

2. The PMPM figures associated with the selected dates, and the projected dates on the y-axis.

3. Ability to make different selections from the data validation boxes and still have a dynamic chart that keeps updating itself.

Getting The Final Sheet And Cell Address Of A Value

Mar 24, 2007

If coded correctly, there are various Excel functions & tricks for creating a formula to send someone on a wild goose chase through many worksheets and cells before finding the final cell that contains the final value. I was able to use =Cell("address",...) function to cut through the many paths and retrieve the address of the final cell. Is there a VBA trick for doing this to the active cell? I would like to be able to run a small VBA routine that would trace back the fomula of the active cell and return the final cell's worksheet and cell address.

Add Color To Cell Based On Selection Made

Jan 5, 2009

I've tried to do conditional formatting for each of the "Discipline" values in this spreadsheet but it is restricted to only 3. Is there a way around this? I'm trying to setup a color code for the "Discipline" values for example RN=Red, LPN=Blue, Social Worker=Orange, Chaplain=Purple, STNA=Yellow, Volunteer=Pink & Other=Green. So when the "Discipline" cell/cells on each of the patient sheets (ie. "Doe, Jane", "Doe, John", etc.) is equal to say RN the cell would then turn Red either on the spreadsheet or only when sheet is printed.

Comparison Of Two Worksheets To Identify Anomalies On Either Sheet

Jan 19, 2013

how to compare two columns on two worksheets and extract any different entries - I have tried using filters and formulas but can't seem to get this to work. I've been looking at Macro's and VB but as a novice am finding it difficult to construct something that works!

My workbook contain two worksheets containing Journal titles and their ISSN's from different sources. I need to ensure the lists match on both columns and if not have a new summary worksheet of anomalies.

worksheet 1 worksheet 2
Column A Column B Column B Column C
publication_title print_identifier Title ISSN
Abacus 0001-3072 Abacus 0001-3072
Accounting 0810-5391 Accounting 0810-5391
Archaeologica 0065-101X Archaeologica 0077-4204
Acta Neurologica 0001-6314 Acta Geologica 1000-9515

So ideally my summary worksheet should have results:
Column A Column B
Archaeologica ISSN error
Acta Neurologica Title on worksheet 1
Acta Geologica Title on worksheet 2

These are lists with around 3000 entries on so VERY time consuming to do manually!
