Change Shape Fill To Picture When Another Cell Equals To 1

May 14, 2014

I have set up a rollover hyperlink so that when I hover over the cell it changes colour and creates a good effect. To do this I have another cell on the sheet that turns to 1 when the cell in question is hovered over.

I need a code so that when that cell displays the number 1. the object (which is rectangle 2) changes from white fill. to a picture I have saved on my desktop.

I cant quite figure out the coding and have been messing about with things like..

if cell range e.g a1 = 1 then rectangle 2 .userpicture " path " else .solid etc.

Macro To Enter Shape Or Picture?

Sep 30, 2012

I am making a spreadsheet file for our football offcials group to review rules.

I tried to record a macro to copy a shape and put it into the spreadsheet, but the shape does not copy.

How do I get the shape to copy into the spreadsheet?

What I want is for them to "think" what they would do and then click the macro and it will show them where the ball would be after the foul/fouls.

Fill Shape With Picture 2007

Aug 21, 2007

The following works perfect in 2003.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim shpTemp As Shape
Set shpTemp = Worksheets("Sheet3").Shapes(ListBox1.Value)
shpTemp.Copy

With Worksheets("Sheet1")
.Activate
. Range("A1").Select
.Paste
Set shpTemp = .Shapes(.Shapes.Count)
shpTemp.Fill.UserPicture ListBox2.Value
End With
End Sub

However, when run in excel 2007 the shape is not filled. If you right click the shape, format shape and click on the "Picture or texture fill" it will fill the shape with the previously selected picture in the userform. I have tried by adding

shpTemp.UserPicture.Fill.Visible = True....................

Create Excel Shape From MapInfo *OR* Make Picture Background Transparent?

Aug 13, 2008

I'm trying to make a map of 14 regions where each region changes brightness depending on values in the worksheets. I think I've got this bit sorted. I'm planning on creating the map using a collection of tessellated shapes or images, and using VBA to alter the properties of each one to create a dynamic map.

The output of the individual maps from MapInfo, our GIS software, is in .png or .jpg. format, and come with a white background. Is there any way to either make the background transparent so multiple shapes can be tessellated effectively, or a way to crop the image to the area's border?

Either that, or does someone know a way to output from MapInfo in such a way to make this possible? (Granted, it's a long shot, but you can't blame a guy for trying...)

Link A Picture To That Specific Product

Aug 29, 2007

I have excel worksheet with 2 sheets in it. Letís call the one "Database", it consist of 713 rows and 15 columns with data in of my product. Then the other one "Display Product" in it you type in the code of the specific product so it search for my code and display all of the information of that product code on the "Display Product" sheet and it that work.

Now I want to link a picture to that specific product to the code. Here's the code I used:

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim oPic As Picture
Me.Pictures.Visible = False
With Range("A71")
For Each oPic In Me.Pictures
If oPic.Name = .Text Then
oPic.Visible = True
oPic.Top = .Top
oPic.Left = .Left
Exit For
End If
Next oPic
End With

End Sub

Now this code works fine up to a specific limit in my case 66 picture to a product, and I need at least 200 more images in it but I get a runtime error in my macro when I put one more image in. This is where I get the run time error -> ďMe.Pictures.Visible = Falseď.
I don't know if excel is limited to image usage. Or maybe there is another way to do what I want to do with more advance coding.

Formula That Uses Link In A Cell To Create Offset Link

Jun 28, 2013

I have two worksheets, one with detail monthly information and one with YTD information. So let's say the three numbers I want to capture in the YTD sheet are in columns B, G and I on the monthly sheet. January's data might be in B5, G5 and I5. February's data is in B12, G12 and I12 and so on.

On the YTD sheet in cell C2 I link to Monthly!B5 and in C3 I link to Monthly!B12 so cells C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet show the monthly totals from column B on the detail sheet. On the YTD sheet, cells C20 to C31 show the monthly totals from column G on the monthly sheet, so cells G5, G12, etc. And finally, cells C40 to C51 on the YTD sheet show monthly totals form column I on the monthly sheet.

In the past I've always created all these links manually. After creating the links in C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet, is there a way to use a formula in C21 that uses the link in C2 to create a link for G5?

Excel 2010 :: Paste Picture Into Small Picture / Diagram Box?

Mar 19, 2012

In Excel 2010, is there any way to paste a picture into a small picture/diagram box, and upon double clicking the picture it would explode to a larger size? And I guess double clicking it again would make it return to its original (smaller) size. I would be pasting several pictures into several different picture/diagram boxes and would need this to be a relative reference so that upon selection it explodes the appropriate picture?

Select Shape In Active Cell

Mar 30, 2014

I am trying to select a shape in a cell and place a cell reference into the shape. I know the cell address, but do not know the shape reference. (The row that the cell and shape reside came from copying the row from another sheet and inserting it into the current sheet). I can not seem to come up with the correct code to accomplish this. Right now I have:

Cells(r + 1, 48).Select
ActiveCell.Shapes.Select
ActiveShapes.Formula = "$AW:" & r + 1

Where r+1 is the row where the line finally resides after insertion and "AW" is the column to the right of the cell where the shape resides.

I have tried to put the cell reference into the shape at the location where it is copied from but the reference is not dynamic and I can not seem to get it to be. Another issue that will arise is that the rows in the new sheet will probably be sorted and I question if the cell reference will follow the shape's new location.

Locate A Shape Within A Shape

Jan 24, 2014

On the attached spreadsheet there is two irregular shapes. "Area1" & "Area2". I need to be able to determine which area the "ball" shape is located in. If the ball is in Area1 then "Multiply 8" gets the ball and "Multiply 9" moves to the blue cell "AH39". If the ball is in "AreaB" Multiply 9 gets the ball and "Multiply 8" runs to cell "S37"

I should be able to do the moving of the shapes using all the samples, its determining which area the ball is in is the problem.

In the real spreadsheet i will probably have around 10 different Areas.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Code To Automatically Change Colour Shape Based On Cell Value

Mar 2, 2012

I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.

I am using excel 2010.

This is the code i am using for each shape.

Code:
If Range("n12").Value = text Then
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255)
End If
