I'm working with a large report that includes ~6000 rows of data. Within the report the data is separated into a couple hundred town names - "Town of XXX" - and I need a page break at each town. Is there a way to insert a page break based on text in a cell? Should be an option in conditional formatting but... Need to avoid VBA.
Each week I format a report that I receive that lists every product a particular employee closed. Its a list of each employee, the product and date. I'll have about 20-30 lines for each employee. I can easily sort by the employee name to have a nice list.
From here what I do is use a forumla to mark where each employee's name changes, then filter by that changed line and insert page breaks for each of these lines. Is there a way to macro this to save me time, having 270 employees takes alot of time still, because thats 270 manually inserted page breaks.
I want some code which will automatically insert a page break every time the data changes in a column. In column B- the data is structured as below;
DOG <blank cell> <blank cell> DOG <blank cell> DOG <blank cell> <blank cell> CAT <blank cell> CAT <blank cell> MOUSE <blank cell> MOUSE MOUSE <blank cell>
The code I want would insert the page break every time every time the data changed- but not where there is a blank cell. I hope this makes sense. I realise the blank cells complicate things- the blank cells separating the data cells are there because there is additional;data in columns C,D,E etc
I have a worksheet with 760 names on it. The first row are headers, 2nd row on is the data. I need to break the data up into 25 rows a piece, excluding the headers. I am making rosters, so each roster would have twenty five names per sheet. Of course I know I will have a couple of names left over, but this would help with the bulk.
I've got data output (~500 rows) that's going into a larger, formatted sheet. The data going into the sheet is about 8 columns of material and the formatted sheet has over 20 columns (the rest to be filled out by the engineers). I'm tacking the new information to the bottom of the sheet (in the corresponding, non-consecutive columns), but the question now is how to format it.
Each location has recommendations, about 1-5 rows. What I want to do is insert a row after each different entry (probably by location address) so it will be more visually accessible (this is the format of the sheet).
I have a spreadsheet that I need to print, but Excel automatically puts in an automatic page break every cell. I have tried all other solutions to this problem posted on this site (page setup, printer issues, etc).
I'm using the this code to print some info out of an existing worksheet and I'd like to force excel to remove all pagebreaks, as the last column or two is always printed onto another page. Does anyone know how to programatically remove pagebreaks?
I'm importing a text document into excel, and I have these page breaks that start with a c in the leftmost space(no other lines start with a character in the 1st space) and 15 spaces underneath it are page headers. I'm trying to create a macro that scans the entire A column for any "C" in the 1st leftmost space, highlight and delete(move page up) that "c" and the 15 spaces following it. I want the macro to loop until it ends.
So far, this is what I got for selecting C:
Dim c For Each c In Range("A1:A306").Cells If Left(activecell.characters.value,1)="C" Then c.Select
want to specify page breaks and set print areas when running a macro. Appears to work sometimes, but then breaks (hard and soft) pop up on their own). Currently using something like this to specify a 2 page wide view...
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A:$Z" With ActiveSheet.PageSetup .FitToPagesWide = 2 Set ActiveSheet.VPageBreaks(1).Location = Range("P1") End With
Can I force breaks to be more absolute (more accurately)?
I have a problem where my conditional formatting is broken when new rows are inserted because Excel is auto updating the cell references. I am not able to use absolute references because I need to be able to Copy the entire information many times on one sheet to handle an ever changing number of projects.
I have attached an example file which shows a simple version of the sheet. There are areas for two projects now, but more would be added to the sheet as needed by just copying the entire section of one project and pasting it at the bottom. For each project, there is a cell which has a data validation list, e.g. B6, from which the user can select the current stage. The list of stages is obtained from column A, e.g. A9:A18. Whatever stage is selected, I need it to be highlighted in some manner. I currently have conditional formatting that checks if the value in B6 matches the information in the current cell and will change the text font color if True.
The problem occurs when new rows are inserted into the project. For example: if the project requires a Beta 1.1 stage, then a row would need to be inserted and labeled for that stage. However, Excel auto changes the cell references so that it no longer looks at B6. I need some way that the current stage can still be highlighted when selected in the Data Validation list.
I know that what I am needing to do may not be the best method to go about this, but I am having to work within the confines of the software available to me and the intended users of the file. Since the number and length of projects can change on a daily basis, the users need to be able to add and remove room for additional stages and projects whenever they want. I have a basic solution available to me using a macro, but the overall solution is clumsy and just leads to more problems.
I have a sheet that data is imported into that is normally no more than 300 rows. I need to insert 2 blank rows after each page break. My problem is the row height is not always the same when the data is imported. How to insert 2 blank rows after each page break using a macro.
I have the following code that I am using to create conditional page breaks. It works sporadically. It will work on the data I used when i set up the code. It will sometimes work on smaller amounts of data. It will sometimes insert the page breaks but then error out at line: ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks.Add Before:= Cells(row_index + 1, "D"). I do not understand this code entirely as a i am novice VB user. Once I get this code to work, I'd love to imrove it so that the page breaks ends when there is no data in last row or last column.
Sub PageBreak() Dim lastrow As Long Dim row_index As Long lastrow = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row For row_index = lastrow - 1 To 2 Step -1 If Cells(row_index, "D").Value <> "" Then 'insert page breaks ever time value in column D changes If IsNumeric(Cells(row_index, "D").Value) Then If Cells(row_index, "D").Value <> Cells(row_index + 1, "D").Value Then ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=Cells(row_index + 1, "D") End If End If End If Next
I have a spreadsheet that is 7 columns wide and contains blocks of data. The data blocks vary in size typically between 3 and 12 rows. Between each block of data is a blank row (there are no blank rows within the data blocks). There may be up to 500 rows in the spreadsheet consisting of maybe 30 varying size blocks of data.
I am attempting to produce a Macro that will insert page breaks into the spreadsheet, the requirement being that non of the blocks of data are split across two pages. I would need to be able to input the available number of rows per page (to allow for headers and footers), the Macro would then need to count down that many rows, find the last blank line before that point and insert a page break. It would then need to count from the position of the inserted page break to determine where to place the next page break etc.
I need to find row numbers of the horizontal page breaks on a sheet quickly. The only method I have found to do this is by using the HPageBreaks property, which is painfully slow.
Is there another way of doing this that's faster? Or some other manner of using HPageBreaks that improves its speed?
The scenario is that I have a macro which generates a list of items where each item is two rows long. If an item intersects a page break--one row is on one page and the 2nd row is on the next page--I want to insert a row so that the entire item is on the next page.
I have a report that is generated that is broken down into 4 or 5 headers.
What I want is basically a way to manually add page breaks for 2 conditions:
*That no section starts at the end of one page and ends on the next; I want to just insert a page break before the section so it is all on the next page.
* That if the first section is more than a page long, that it inserts a new header saying 'section 1 continued..' basically.
I've been able to code it and it functions how I want. However, it takes about 20-30 seconds on a dual-core computer with 2gb of memory to insert these page breaks, so I thought I'd get some expert advice on where the slow-downs are and how I could go about tightening up the code to get it to run faster. (this subprocedure is #15 of 15 when generating the report, and the rest take between 2 and 5 seconds combined).
Sub Quote_Page_Breaks() Dim financials_start_row As Integer, financials_start_page As Integer, financials_end_row As Integer, financials_end_page As Integer Dim recommended_start_row As Integer, recommended_start_page As Integer, recommended_end_row As Integer, recommended_end_page As Integer Dim standard_end_row As Integer, standard_end_page As Integer Dim i As Integer, page_break() As Integer Dim recommended As Boolean On Error Resume Next
I have a report that contains several rows of data. This data is separated by page breaks, so for example, there could be 1500 rows, separated into 90 pages by page breaks. Each range may have anywhere between 35 and 45 rows, but some of those rows may contain no data.
I would like to loop through the cells column A, look for a certain criteria, then delete the range around that certain cell that is contained within the page breaks.
I have code that will loop through the cells in column A. I also managed to create code that will delete a set range but since the ranges aren't always a uniform number of rows I need another fix.
Is it possible to use the resize function in Excel VB to select all rows that are between 2 page breaks.
I have a worksheet with several pages of data. Each page is separated by a page break at the top and bottom of the range, each page can consist of any number of rows from 20 to 50. I need to look for a specific criteria in column A in each of these pages. If the criteria is met, then I need to delete that page.
For example, if the cell where the criteria is met is A50, in page 2, and the page break above this is at row 45, and the one below is at row 55, then delete rows 45 to 55
I have the code that finds the criteria in column A. I tried to use the offset and resize functions but as there isnt always a consistent number of rows involved this didnt work
If this isnt possible, can you refer to page numbers in excel, so if the criteria is found in pages 4, 7 and 10 of the data then these pages are deleted?
I have a spreadsheet with many tabs in it (over 100 I believe) and I just want a macro that will adjust the page breaks so it will print one page per tab. Somewhere along the way, the page breaks have auto-adjusted themselves to print 4 or more pages on one tab. I do not want that.
In trying to figure this out on my own, I recorded a macro on one of the tabs and it returned the following Sub Macro1()
ActiveWindow.View = xlPageBreakPreview ActiveSheet.VPageBreaks(1).DragOff Direction:=xlToRight, RegionIndex:=1 ActiveWindow.View = xlNormalView End Sub How can I add to or adjust this to make it adjust the pagebreaks in all available tabs?
