Using a listbox with no drop down, just 1 item visible, click to select an item - it highlights in blue. Then use the up/down keyboard keys and the next item above/below becomes visible and is blue - i.e. is selected. However scrolling using the control sidebar scrolls the list but does not select the displayed item. How can I make the scrollbar work the same way as the keyboard arror keys? Alternatively - how can I check that the displayed item is the selected item (Its not multi-select)
why my keyboard navigation keys (Tab and arrow keys) quit working after the code below executes? Other keyboard keys like alpha or numeric characters and Enter work but I can't move to another cell without clicking it. Selecting another ws, then returning to the "Master" ws fixes the problem. I tried activating Master near the end of the code but that didn't help. Master is not a protected sheet.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Column 7 Or Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If IsEmpty(Target) Then Exit Sub Dim NextRow As Long, MySheet As Worksheet Set MySheet = Sheets(Target.Value) NextRow = MySheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1 With MySheet .Unprotect "1234" Range(Cells(Target.Row, 1), Cells(Target.Row, 6)).Copy .Cells(NextRow, 1) With .Cells(NextRow, 7).......................................................
I have a sheet that I have added protection to (Tools / Protection / Protect Sheet) with a password (PostItNote). Before I protect the sheet I have allowed users to edit ranges (Tools / Protection / Allow Users To Edit Ranges). I have made my selection of the cells that users are allowed to edit and protected the sheet. I now want to run a macro that will un-protect the sheet (in order to allow the macro to edit the protected cells) make some changes and then re-protect the sheet. The macro runs as it should do but when it stops I am unable to edit the cells that I allowed users to edit? For some reason the areas that I enabled users to edit have been changed allowing users to only edit far less cells that I originally set!
I have been working on a workbook, and all of a sudden, my keyboard no longer worked in Excel. No shortcuts, no CTRL+C, no CTRL+V, no CTRL+S, no CTRL+A, no F12 to save, no letters, no numbers.... The only button that is working is my ALT key, and I use the other letter keys just fine to navigate after pressing ALT.... But that's it!
I have still been able to work on it because I can still write in Word, and I can still write more code in the Visual Basic window, and I can still click the buttons I create under the Developer... but it's still frustrating to not be able to type a thing in any of the cells, formula bar, or be able to use any of the shortcuts. And now when I tried to close it, I can still select everything else, and I can close this workbook, but it won't close Excel.
Have a file that I have been coding and find when I open to a worksheet with limited access cells, the Up and Down arrows will not move vertically though Lrft and Right arrows OK though not raping arround. This problem may have been on for sometime and I haven't been back to it. Other Excel files all OK.
I've created Keyboard Shortcuts to run Macros in "Workbook A". Problem is, if I have "Workbook B" open in the same Excel instance/process as "Workbook A" the Keyboard Shortcuts will run the Macros in "Workbook A".
Is there a way to restrict the Keyboard Shortcuts to only run the Macro if Workbook A is active?
Or is there a way to code the Macro to run its procedures only if Workbook A is active?
The following macro works when I run using Alt+F8+Enter The macro also works when it is linked to a button on the worksheet. However, it does not work when I try to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+P. I've tried adding the shortcut key code into the macro -- still doesn't work. I've tried changing the shortcut key to a different letter
I am trying to create a timekeeping workbook that will track the time I spend on certain tasks. I have created the attached worksheet including macros that correctly allows me switch between tasks but I cannot run this set of macros in one workbook and work in another.
I'm creating a small Excel RPG where the player moves the around a blank worksheet with the walls of a maze appearing as you approach them (think dark corridors, you can see only 1 cell in all directions around you).
The players current location is shown by excel setting the activecell to the players location. Currently I have four buttons labeled Up, Down, Left and Right which the player clicks to move in the desired direction.
The testers were frequently missing the four movement buttons and this would put the activecell outside of the maze next to one of the buttons. They'd have to move it back manually.
I would like for the players to move around using the arrow keys to use the activecell, as you would normally move around a sheet... but before each movement there is a procedure that check IF the player can move in the desired direction or not (cell borders used for walls), and then once they've moved there are more procedures to check for monsters treasure chests etc.
How can I make the arrow keys trigger the macros that the Up, Down, Left and Right buttons currently trigger, and not just move the activecell?
Some expert users can unhide a sheet in a worksheet which is protected by password. But I don't want to place a button in the worksheet for everyone to see and wonder what it's for. I can record a macro and assign a keyboard shortcut but I can't do it it with existing macros ?
My macro essentially requires a deletion of the entire sheet, so I cannot run it through a button, it'd by definition be deleted. So I was thinking to run this macro through the keyboard, how to assign a keyboard key to existing macro?
I have two sheets that contain data and I have to switch between them all the time, and I thought I could make it easy by assigning the "switch" to a macro. I am now looking to assign that macro so a single button, like the "`" key. I have tried various pieces of code but none of them worked.I think something like the below may work but I don't know how to start.
If Sheets("Sheet2") is active, then call switch 1, to switch back.
However, I have not been able to find a solution. I created 2 macros that work using the alt+F8 and enter option as well as the run from the macros menu method. Whenever I try to use the keyboard short cut eg. Ctrl+e it will either not do anything or pause and then select every cell. The codes are below:
Sub Macro5() ' ' Macro5 Macro '
I have tried multiple letter options and have also tried many macros in a new workbook and I cannot get it to run with the keyboard shortcut.
I have a code in file A that opens several files (B,C,D&E), copies some data from them, then closes the files. That part of the code works fine, but each of the files that are opened (B,C,D,&E) have a Workbook Open event that causes the file to save automatically every 30 seconds. (I know this is not recommended, but this is what the user wants.) The files also have a Workbook Before Close event that is supposed to stop the timer so the file will close without reopening. These each run fine on their own.But if I run code A, the workbook Before Close event in file B (C,D, & E) does not seem to run and the files reopen after 30 seconds to save. When I step through the code it works fine and goes through the Before Close event in each file and the files remain closed.
my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.
Here in our department we made a pretty elaborate macro that takes a report and sorts them out to 17 different sheets in a one workbook. This Macro pulls a file from a specific location on our server and then opens the CSV sorts it out color codes all the important information and saves it back onto the server under you specific initials.
They are four PC's along with our Managers laptop that run this Macro daily.
About 3 weeks ago my Managers laptop stops running the Macro completely and hangs in the middle of the whole thing. Eventually crashing Excel.
We try to remove the modules and re-import them back into the personal macro workbork but this does not work. The Macro's did not change and still fully function on the other four desktops to this day.
I uninstall Office on my Managers laptop and reinstall. Import the Modules again and still hangs up in very same spot it did 3 weeks ago.
I've tried to lower the macro security to the lowest level also and I've still had no luck with this laptop. I don't understand. The Macro's function perfectly on other PC's but will not function on this laptop.
I have a Sheet sheet1 and I want to run a macro when the cell D2 in Sheet1 is equal to 10,7,5,and 3. I only want this macro to run when those values are reached the macro then puts the data onto a sheet called wps. The macro is run as a module and is a sub macro.
I'm trying to get a macro to run when the user presses the save button. I have the following code:
This code is supposed to apply the TRIM function to every worksheet in the workbook when the user presses save, and the saves the results. I understand the Private Sub bit is the code to have the macro run during the save, but for some reason the macro itself isn't actually running. I'm not getting any error message, its just that the cells which should have the TRIM function applied to them aren't being corrected.
I have 3 different sheets with a private sub on each all labelled
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
The macro's runs fine on each page.
I want to put a macro on a separate sheet that i can run each of those macro's
I did initially copy the original private macro and change the
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
But I couldn't do all 3 in the same manner. i did change each name to something different... the other 2 subs did run, but they didn't do anything except put the massage box on the end saying that "the macro has finished".
I have 7 different workbooks as part of my daily routine.
At present the first workbook is opened via the task scheduler, and the macro is run using the following code
This then opens the next workbook and closes the current one. The next workbook then runs its macro again from a timed call
This repeats for 7 workbooks. The problem is, if a macro overruns - the whole schedule is out of sync when macro's are called depending on the time. What I would like to do, is link each macro by calling for the next one, and closing the current workbook. However, when i have tried to do this, the macro has always stopped when the workbook has been closed - the next macro doesn't run.
