Macro For Pop-up Window With Picture


A macro, which would allow me to click on a particular cell, which will have an ID number (1 through 34), each ID# is attributed to a particular employee. These ID# are located in my spreadsheet in columns B & G, and the ID #'s begin initially in B6 & G6 and continue downward to B34 & G34. These ID #'s are used in a vlookup type formula which covers 35 pages of this workbook. What I'd like to do is be able to click on any cell between B6& B34 (and/or the same in G6&G34), which has a particular ID # in it and have the photo of that particular employee designated with that ID# pop up in a window generated by the macro. I hope this makes sense! Any help would be greatly appreciated. My 1st sheet in my workbook is my "lookup" tab, which contains my ID# list and numbering sequence affiliated to each employee. So I'm not sure if I'd need to put the photograph of the employee in a column next to the employees name or have a folder designated with all my pictures in a certain directory, etc.

Yes/No Pop-up Window
I have a certain macro which copies data from one file to the other. There are several target files (refering to a given month each) and one source file. The user chooses a month from a drop down list in the source file which modifies a certain cell. The value of this cell decides on which of the 12 target files will be opened to paste the data to. The macro also copies the value of a cell which refers to the current date (=TODAY()) This number is then compared with a the range (value between two pints in time: start and end date of a given month). All I need is some sort of a pop-up window with a header i.e. WARNING. and the window text: You are about to send the information to a file which does not refere to the current month, are you sure you want to perform this action" and two buttons YES and NO in case the value of the current date does not match the range set up by the starting and ending of a given month in the target file. The button YES would then do waht ever the code that was placed before the pop-up window said, save the aplication and close it, and the NO button would simply close the aplicatiown without saving it. Something like that:

Sub Export()
'the whole code describing the action to be taken
If Range("A1").Value >= Range("A3").Value And Range("A1").Value <= Range("A2").Value Then
'here the A1 cell refers to the current date and cells A2 and A3 to the start and the end date of the month
End Sub

Customizing Debug Pop Up Window
If a user decides to hit the esc key right in the middle of one of my procedures (bug free, etc), this will leave the file in an odd state. The file is set up so if the routine is re-run it cleans the file up and restores it to proper form.

But hitting esc exposes my code which is password protected when the file is idle. I employ a little trick that makes it hard to hack into my worksheet code, but one achilles heel is the esc button.

What I want is to have the file close if the routine is stopped in mid stream. This way the code is not exposed, and the user cannot monkey with the file.

I wanted to set the file up where i have a custom debug window that when a button is pressd the file closes OR when the user escapes out of the debug window the file closes as well.

Internet Explorer Object AND Pop Up Window
I have a VBA project that navigates to a website and then clicks on a link. When I click the link in my code a new IE Browser opens with a form that I wan to fill out. I know how to update the form, but I don't know how to reference the new browser window that was opened when I clicked on the link.

'Open End User Multiple Selection
Set tags = myIE.document.getElementsByTagName("A")
For Each tag In tags
If InStr(1, tag, "'multiple_selections.htm','EndUser'", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

Creating A Pop-up Window With Specific Cell Data
I'm basically creating a file where a userform comes up when you open the workbook, blocks the access to the actual workspace so that no manual entry can be done. What the userform allows you to do is add a new entry to the database (the userform has some text boxes where we type in stuff like location and name or age) after having found the next empty row in the enormous database (3.000 lines)

After having clicked the OK button in the userform and added the data to the database, I would like the userform to have a pop-up message box with specified text like:

"The number assigned to this entry is:" and then I would like to add a variable with excel using the cell in column D of the same row of the new entry. So the end result would be :


The number assigned to this entry is: 01

In Excel 2007 when you go to "developer" tab, the first group is "code" under that when you click on "Macro". You will be able to see a button called "create". Can you tell for what purpose it is used? when it will be "active" because it is always in disabled state.

Macro For A Pop-Up Box
I have a spreadsheet which is used for a daily schedule of contact centre advisor staff. I want to create a macro that will throw up a pop up box when the sheet is opened using the date as a reference....

So on e worksheet named 'realtime' i have row 2 from cells B to AZ containing a date ie B2= 01/07/2007, C2= 02/07/2007 etc.

Column A has various 'headings' A4= Earlies, A5= Mids, A6= Lates, A7= Total

So under each date is the corresponding figures for the stuff in column A.

So if I open the sheet today (03/07/2007) I would want a pop up that shows this data....

Earlies + the data in D4
Mids + the data in D5
Lates + the data in D6
Total + the data in D7

But obviously it needs to reference today's date and show the figures under that date?

Macro Window With Buttons To Accept User Input
I'm very new to Excel and definately to macros/vba. I've already received a tremendous amount of help with this file but I'm am really struggling here and getting very frustrated! I've got a pretty good handle on the excel part but the macros/vba is another story. Here is what i'm attempting to do: I've created a form "frmMacroButtons" which has 8 buttons. When the workbook is opened I want this form/window to launch. I want the user to be able to select any of the buttons but also be able to just click into the worksheet manually if wanted but have the window stay open to go back to use the buttons. Each of the buttons I've typed a description of what I want each of the buttons to do in the code view.

Macro To Make Insert Comment Window Appear Automatically
I have created an attendance tracker for a team of people at work. It simply involves a grid of the days of the month and on each 'day' (or cell) I have set up the Validation command to prompt the the user to select whether they were at work, on holiday, off sick etc. etc from a drop down box. If they do not change the cell, its defaulted value is that they are in work.

When a user selects the days that they are planning a holiday in the future, they are meant to write a comment on the cells they have changed, to advise when they had 'requested' the holiday.

What I would like is (a macro?) which makes the comment box automatically 'pop up' when they change a cell from its default value prompting them to fill in the details rather than relying on them to 'add comments' manually.

In addition, what would be the best way to 'restrict' them from booking holiday within the next 7 days - we have a problem with people booking holiday on 'lastminute.com' for 2 days time, booking off the holiday on the spreadsheet and saying that they had it planned for weeks!

Rename Macro In Properties Window Loses Shortcut
I recorded one that does a very simple task, converts formulas to values. I saved it in my personal workbook, all is well. I noticed that excel names them Module1, Module2 etc. I thought it would be better to name them, so in the properties window next to "name" i changed Module1 to ConvertFormulas.

However, when i go to a worksheet, the keyboard shortcut no longer works. Reverting back to the old name Module1 solves this. Clicking Tools -> Macro -> Macros, selecting ConvertFormulas and then Options and modifying the shortcut.

example:

Macro For Sending Emails :: Pop Up Confirm And Cancel
I'm using Excel 2002 on and XP machine. I am creating a spreadsheet to track a work plan.

Column A: Name
Column B: Date
Column C: Time
Column D: YES
Column E: No
Column F: New Date
Column G: New Time

What I'm looking to do is input click able buttons in Columns D: Yes and Column E: No.

When a user clicks on YES, a pop up window should appear with the data in columns A,B,C.

The p0p-up should contain CONFIRM and CANCEL buttons.

Asking the user if they want to confirm the date and Time.

If CONFIRM is clicked Excel should then send an email to me and the user to say that the work schedule has been confirmed.

If CANCEL is clicked the pop-up window closes.

Secondly if the user clicks NO, a pop-up window should open with two free text boxes. One for Proposed date and One for Proposed time. And again 2 buttons for Confirm and Cancel.

If Confirm is clicked then Excel should record the data entered in the free text boxes into Column G and Column H and send emails to me and the user with the Proposed date and Time Data.

If CANCEL is clicked the pop-up window closes.

Macro To Change Linked Picture (Camera) Cell Reference
I am a complete newbie with the camera tool. Is there any way to make the camera tool dynamic so that the cells the tool is referencing can change upon the click of a button or some other form of switch? I am creating my first dashboard and this is the last step for my report to be completely dynamic.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Never mind, I apologize i just figured this one out...

Create a user defined formulaIn the UDF Create an if statementThe if statement's condition is the logistics in the shift mechanismThe value if true is the first group of cells you want in the snap shotThe value if false is the second group of cells you want in the snap shot, The range you want to toggle betweenRename the cell reference of any snap shot you have taken with the UDF name. In my example my UDF is "Dude" so when you select the camera tool it shows =Dude as the cell referenceReference a scroll bar to the conditional cell you selected in the if statement or choose statement. This is the shift mechanism

If you want to toggle between more than 2 sets of data use =Choose instead of =if

Invisible Window
There is a column with a formula and a list validation, and an adjacent hidden column with numbered ids. When moving into the list validation cell the Worksheet_Selection_Change event code saves information about the Target cell - value, address, formula. When a value has been obtained from the list the Worksheet_Change event code looks up a belonging id in a lookup table and put this in the hidden id cell, and puts the saved formula back into the list validation cell. This makes the sheet (or window) unmanagable.

When I move around the sheet I can see the cell name in the Name Box, but the sheet itself is not visible. The only way to display the sheet is to add a new window (Window - New Window), choose the first "frozen" window (Window - 1. window) and quit this window. Then the new window is ready for use, but of course with the same limitations as the newly quitted one. Ring a bell, someone?? The funny thing is that in this workbook I also use the same functionality in another sheet without any problems.

Active Window
I've built a macro to run a loop that opens excel files, prints certain sheets and closes them. I have the macro working - to some degree. here is my code (this is excel):

Sub RMPProducer()

OldPath = "S:RMBS_Performance_Analytics Analysis1 Staging Folder For Monthly Model Templates2007200704VVDeals"
Dim t As Workbook
Dim s As String
Dim a As Window

With Application.FileSearch
.NewSearch
.LookIn = OldPath
.SearchSubFolders = False
.Filename = "*.xls"
.MatchTextExactly = True
If .Execute() > 0 Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
s = .FoundFiles(i)

I have 2 problems. First problem is that I am trying to add a function to make the window close once its finished printing. This actually works - but it limits my loop iterations from i = 1 to 2 (so it only runs 2 times and I'm not exactly sure why). If I don't include the statement - this can run for up to 7 - 8 times (these are very large files) then excel runs out of memory. Unfortunately, i can't set the loop to run from i = anything other than one.

So What I would prefer is to be able to make the "ActiveWindow.close" command work - because this way I can run the entire loop. But I'm not sure how to. I tried window referencing, I tried adding a new active Window so when the file opens, its opening in the active window already, but nothing works.

Preferably, I need to be able to reference both windows, as my next macro will involve referencing 2 windows (one static - always open) and the other the loop above.
