A list box selection works fine on my computer but on a friends Windows Vista PC the following happens:
Selecting items near the top of the list works fine. 1/4 of way down a mouse click on an item selects the Next item. 1/2 of the way down in the list, the mouse click on an item selects the one 2 or 3 further down, etc., etc.
I use Excel XP 2002. I now can't copy /paste by using the right mouse button. It works perfectly in other MS products, on the net and on the desktop. l have checked my Tools/Options with other users, I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled the complete Excel package but the problem persists, even from start with a blank worksheet. I have also checked and there are no add-on ticked.
I'm trying to design a form, for various staff members to populate. I would like to ease their usage by putting a check mark in which ever cell they left click, also if they click a second time in the same cell it will undo the action.
I have not decided yet which which cells I am using, but is their some simple routine that could be used over & over again and all I would need to do would (hopefully) simply be to change the cell numbers in the routine to apply to that cell or range of cells.
I have a log that stores a list of different files in the first column. All of these files are worksheet hyperlinks (ie: =HYPERLINK("\USSS000010_PUBLIC5_COMMON15_PPA20066-032G6-032G.xls","06-032G")). If I click on any of these cells the file will open.
I am trying to open certain files from the list using VBA.
My question is Is there any way to simulate a mouse click, on the cell containing the hyperlink, using VBA?
In excel when you have filters on for all columns there is a little bitty square box with a little down arrow (like an upside down triangle) in the lower right corner of every cell in the top row (the header row) and I can't find a way to select one of those little itty bitty down arrows without using a mouse - -
Is there any way to select one of those little down arrows in the little filter box icon thingy with the keyboard?? I can't figure it out.
I just want to select the little arrow so that the filter dialog box opens - I am trying to create a keyboard macro that will use the 'BEGINS WITH' macro but when i record the macro it uses the same word for the "BEGINS WITH" parameter every time and I want it to use the word in the current clipboard - can't seem to write that.
way, using VBA code, to disable/enable individual shortcut menu items that are are made available with a right mouse button click. The following code disables the right mouse button completely but I would like to disable only a couple of options like the ' Cut' option.
The code to disable is below and to re-enable I just change False to True.
Dim cb As CommandBar i = 0 For Each cb In CommandBars If cb.Type = msoBarTypePopup Then cb.Enabled = False Next cb
I have a worksheet that I use to monitor the progress of student interns. They are assigned 20 different tasks and recieve 5 points for each task they complete, for a possible total of 100. In my worksheet, I record their progress and maintain a running total. I do this by simply inserting the number "5" by each cell containing each task. Instead of inserting the value, what I'd prefer to do is simply place my cursor, click the mouse button, and have a formattable check mark appear with a hidden value of "5". I'm simply trying to create a snazzy interface. Do I want too much? Or is it actually possible to do this?
I have an excel file with a column (I) which lists the total number of businesses in a different tab (DATA) that meet certain restrictions (these restrictions being listed in the same row in different cells). When the cell under coluimn "I" is double-clicked, it pulls the businesses from tab DATA that meet the restrictions for that row and shows them all in another tab.
I don't know the person that created this and was wondering if there is a way to figure out what is being done to make this happen? I looked in macros, but didn't see anything relating to this. Anyone know how this is done?
So you know, I have tried double-clicking other cells, but nothing happens - not even editing into the cell (altho this can be done from the toolbar up top).
I have a menu structure in place so when a user clicks a button, it opens a Userform as a menu. The only problem i have is that if the user doesnt want to use that menu, and clicks on the spreadsheet, it doesnt dissapear.
Is there any VBA code that anyone knows that when a user clicks on the spreadsheet, or even just clicks their mouse anywhere (ie other menus at the top, spreadsheet, desktop) like a mouseout code on HTML so the menu will dissapear?
it would be possible to have text disappear after being displayed in Excel for a while.
My son and I played around with games (helping create a photographic memory, I told the youngster!) on the thing and until yesterday neither of us noticed that clicking the mouse anywhere (actually just clicking it) causes the screen to "freeze" while the code still happily erases the text in the background.
Hitting ESC allows the screen to cath up to the actual code EVEN THOUGH the ESC key is actually disabled from breaking the code.
I'm using code based on the following post: Add Borders To Cells Of Spreadsheet From Access. That code was developed for a relatively small recordest. I am using the same coding style to transfer a recordset that has roughly 2000 records in it. Since this is all taking place over a network there is a period of time (about 15-20 seconds) where Excel is open and the user is watching the cells get populated from Access. If, during that period of time when Excel is open, the user clicks in a cell during the population of data, it stops the process and causes an error on the Access end (Error 50290: Application-defined or object-defined error). Is there a way I can prevent user input (perhaps prevent signals from the keyboard and mouse) until after the data has been transferred? I know this is a long way to do a TransferSpreadsheet command but I like the way the column headers get formatted as well as the column sizes. I also think it's pretty cool to watch the data populate as it goes.
I have two files and I need to compare them. The two files will be store in a listbox an I have to make the lines that are different with another color or select them so it will be easy to see the diferences. It is for one project that have to be ready tomorrow
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
I am having problems with an Excel workbook I am working on. I have a sheet that has a number of controls added to the top of it. Two of these controls are listboxes. My problem is, if I am in the listbox navigating through it, and I accidently move the Mouse Wheel, Excel crashes and I get the usual, "Send Error Report" form.
I have seen that there are other people having this problem and that there are a number of solutions out there but my problem is a bit different. I have a few forms with listboxes on them, and while mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work, it certainly doesn't crash Excel. It only seems to happen when I have a control permanently added to the sheet. Is there any event handler for mouse wheel scrolls or anyway to disable them through VB?
I have been modifying the options available on my right click menu, getting rid of about half of what was there and adding items I use quite often like Paste Values, Paste Formats, Paste Formulas, Sort..., AutoSum, and Format as Percent, as well as adding group dividers. I have it just the way I want it, but I have one issue. If the clipboard is empty, all of the paste buttons are disabled on the Standard toolbar and in the Edit menu as are the Paste and Paste Special... items on the right click menu, but the new paste items I added to my right click menu are still enabled. If I click on one, I get a "PasteSpecial method of Range class failed" error because I have no range selected. I got around this by adding On Error Resume Next to the macros of my added paste functions - not elegant, but functional. Is there a way to have those items appear grayed out and disabled on my right click menu when the clipboard is empty as opposed to my current workaround?
Question regarding the disabling of right mouse button click options and have used the code below to disable and reciprocal code to enable options. The code works well in Excel 2003 but have recently used the spreadsheet in excel 2000 and the code causes a runtime error 5 'Invalid procedure call or argument'. how to amend the code to have it also work with Excel 2000.
