Macro Only Runs Once

Nov 28, 2009

I can't seem to find an answer for this, but as an alternative, on Worksheet Activate the code runs and places a 1 in Range("A1") and therefore the next time the macro will not run.

This works fine for me, but just thinking if somebody who doesn't know why the one is in A1 and deletes it this macro will run again on sheet activate.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Dim LR As Long
Dim rng As Range

If Sheets("Charts").Range("A1").Value = 1 Then Exit Sub

LR = Sheets("POD").Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row

With Sheets("Charts")
.Range("I129").FormulaR1C1 = "=ROWS(R1C1:R[-128]C[-8])"
Set rng = .Range("A129").Resize(, 10)
rng.Copy rng.Resize(LR - 4)...............

Creating A Macro, That Creates A New Button, Which Itself Runs A Macro..

Dec 15, 2009

I have a long complicated macro that processes a ton of data and gives the output in a new sheet. I then want to create new buttons (or some sort of user clickable triggers) on this new sheet that runs another macro.

I have got the actual adding of buttons in the sheet working, but I can't find a way to automatically assign macros to newly generated buttons during runtime. Is this even possible (or are there any clever tricks I could use to get around this?)

Building Macro That Runs Another Macro Based On Certain Columns

Jun 6, 2012

Essentially, I am working with a database for a school and up until this point, each row matches up to a student with a bunch of information on them. One of these pieces of info is their parent's names. This is a much simplified look at things, but the screenshot below is a basic version of what everything looks like:

Now, the school wants me to split up the parents names from the student's and place them in their own row. I have recorded a macro to do this where you make the active cell the "full name" column for the row you want to expand, and then run the macro. Afterwards, up to two more rows are added, with the parent's names and some data copied. Below is a screenshot of what that looks like: (yellow is the new data generated, and blue is the active cell I marked to run the macro properly)

The issue is that there are thousands of these that need to be done, and I figured there is a way to do this with a macro. The issue is that not every row has parents names to expand out.

In layman's terms, I need a macro that will look at the two columns titled "Father's Name" and "Mother's Name" on each row of the spreadsheet and then, if there is any data in both or either of them, it should set the active cell to the "Full Name" column for that row then run the macro accordingly. After that it should repeat this all the way down, skipping any where neither of the columns have text in them

In the actual spreadsheet, the columns that need to be checked are AW and AX, and the column that needs to be set to the active cell before running the macro is B.

Macro Only Runs Manually

Feb 5, 2008

Running Windows XP; Excel 2003

I have a fairly simply macro.

It copies certain sheets out of a workbook (for a new workbook)
Unprotect the sheets in the new workbook
Deletes a particular cell on each sheet
Unhides a sheet
Sets all of the new worksheets to normal view
Protects the new sheets
Lets the user save and name the new workbook.

All is working fine Except it will not change the new workbook from Page Break View to Normal view.

The code I'm using = Sheets("name").Activate

Here's the strangest part. When I run the macro from a command button, the newly created workbook retains the page break view (as is in the original).

When I run the macro line by line via F8, IT WORKS JUST FINE

rnum = ActiveCell.Row
Is there a difference between xl2000 & xl2003?

Turn Autocalculation Off While Macro Runs

Mar 11, 2009

I have a macro which reads data from a large number (up to 500) of books in a folder. This extracted information is subject to some fairly heavy analysis which means that the macro runs very slowly as the sheet is constantly calculating.

I would like to add some code - maybe after 'screen updating = false' - that would turn off auto calculation while the macro runs and then restore it once the macro is finished.

Splash Screen While Macro Runs?

Sep 24, 2009

I searched for this and found a few examples on splash screens, but if someone could help I would appreciate it.

Basically I have this massive macro that runs, I recorded some of it, and VBA the rest. It does a bunch of things like bringing in different spreadsheets, formatting vlookups blah blah blah... Anyway for a nice touch I was hoping that I could get a splash screen or something that will run while this macro is running in the background. How hard would this be? The macro is button driven...

Unlocking Cell After Macro Runs

Dec 17, 2009

I have a macro in my worksheet that runs as a change event on certain comment cells. This macro unprotects the worksheet, expands the merged comment cell that just change, and re-protects the worksheet. The cell expansion works great. When I re-protect the worksheet all of the cells work correctly, except the cell that was just changed. Any other "unlocked" cell in the document stays unlocked after the protection is applied, but the cell that just changed becomes locked. I need this cell to remain unlocked to allow the user to update the comments. Here is my full

Run A Macro That Only Runs On The Filtered Data

Jan 11, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that is made up of single line items with sub-totals at various points going down the sheet (ie the spreadsheet is split into sections)

Each section is about 100 rows long and 40 columns wide, 10 of which are sub-totals, all using the same formula from that i enter in column A.

As i add new sections i have recorded a simple macro that copies the active cell (ie A15 for example). It then pastes into D15, F15, H15, N15, X15 and then returns to A15.
I have linked this up to ctrl X for ease of running.

I have around 500 section totals to "ctrl X", per spreadsheet and 10 spreadsheets to do in total. I have firstly filtered all the line items (rows) out to leave me just the sub-totals to [ctrl x] [arrow down] [ctrl x] [arrow down] [ctrl x] etc etc etc....
Is there anyway to automate this process, i have tried recording another macro of me [ctrl x] [arrow down] about 30 times, but when i run it, it pastes on the hidden rows, not just on what you see on the screen. Is there a bit of code i can enter so it only sees what is visible.??

Macro Only Runs In Step-Thru Mode

Sep 11, 2006

I have a peice of code which opens up a number of Workbooks (200+) and updates a series of control tables in each. Given our security etc environment, links and external references etc are not possible. The target files must all be standalone and self-sufficient.

The problem I have is that when I run the procedure in question in the usual way, the procedure simply terminates after the first file is opened. No error messages, no distress - it just stops. I have put debugging calls all around the "Workbook.Open" call, and it simply doesn't make it out of the call. There is no Auto_Open code in the workbooks being opened and (as I indicated above) no external links, references or function calls.

What's weird is that if I step through the procedure in the Command Debugger, everything works fine. Even weider, if I complete step-by-step processing on the first target file then I can press "Play" and the code will complete execution and process all the remaining files without error.

I have rebuilt/recreated/re-ordered the target files and even moved them to a different volume.

If anyone has seen this before, or has any idea what the cause may be, or even just a wild idea, I'd love to hear it.

Code segment attached.

'*** Process each file in the list provided
For intCounter = 1 To intWBS_Files

Call Debug_Msg("Opening WBS File")

Application.EnableEvents = False
Set wbkThis_WkBk = Application.Workbooks.Open(strWBS_Files(intCounter), 0, False)
Application.EnableEvents = True

Call Debug_Msg(("Opened WBS File:" & Chr(13) & strWBS_Files(intCounter)))

If (wbkThis_WkBk Is Nothing) Then
Call Write_Error_Record("File Open Failed", strWBS_Files(intCounter))
Code continues.....

Confirm Prompt Before Macro Runs

Nov 20, 2006

I have a button. When pressed, it runs a macro. Instead, after pressing the button, I would like the user to confirm to run the macro and display some info about it. This is to make sure the user does not accidentally run the wrong macro (button). I just need a prompt box, with a line info, and the two choices YES and NO. If NO is selected, nothing happens. If YES is selected, macro continues.

Macro With Delete Row - No Longer Runs

Apr 6, 2007

This macro ran fine until I started using Offset on ranges to have them extend. The macro replaces "L" with blanks but does not go on to delete the rows. The name "Type" refers to =Offset(Mem05!$A$2,0,0, CountA(Mem05!$A$2:$A$270),10)

Relevant part of Macro
Application.Goto Reference:="Type"
Selection.Replace What:="L", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False, _
On Error Resume Next


Is it using Offset that could be causing this error?

Automatically Scroll Window As Macro Runs?

Jul 31, 2014

Just to see how calculations were working out, I was trying to get a macro to scroll down the window as it calculated data.

Sadly, ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=2 was too fast and =1 was too slow!

That's the only command I know to get this to work.

demonstration of a different command. Any way to get the window to scroll automatically to the cell which has just had information inserted into it?

Here's the VBA:

Sub CustomerCategory()
Dim Rng As Range

Macro Runs Fine In Debug But Not From ComboBox

Feb 24, 2009

I have a workbook that contains 9 worksheets. Four of the worksheets have the same row lables in column B and must always be the same. Three of the worksheets are fed from the 4th sheet so that the integrity of the lables is maintained.

The user can change the lable value to meet their needs and they can insert or delete rows (within limits) as they see fit.

The attached macro "Sub Delete_Row_All_Sheets()" works fine when I run it from Debug (F8).

However, when I run it from Forms.ComboBox the macro returns to the "y = Application.InputBox("Enter The Row Number You Wish To Delete", _" screen. If I select cancel, the results I anticipated occur but I don't want the user to have to assume this will happen.

Why does the macro return to this screen when executed from the ComboBox but not when executed from Debug?

Macro Runs On Wrong Workbook On Close

Jul 29, 2009

I have a macro on a particular workbook that runs when the workbook closes.

This runs fine when I close the workbook itself. If I happen to have other workbooks open and then I close EXCEL rather than an individual workbook, my macro that runs on close always runs when it is not the active workbook.

To put it another way, say that my 'run on close' macro is workbook 1. I also have workbooks 2 and 3 open as well. If workbook 3 is the active workbook and I choose to close Excel (and thus close all three workbooks), my 'run on close' macro runs straight away and, worse still, will run it on workbook 3 (my active workbook).

How can I stop the macro running until it is the active workbook in the closing chain, so that it only runs on the correct workbook? (workbook 1 in my example)

Splash Screen - How To Display While Macro Runs

Sep 27, 2011

I have a splash screen I want to display while a macro runs. I've created all the necessary code based on information from this site but have a question about where to actually put the code as all the example I've seen are based on workbook open events.

I tried placing my code


with in the macro I waned the splash screen to be displayed during but that doesn't work. Well, it does, but not as I intended. The splash screen pops up for the specified duration as part of the macro stopping the macro, then closes and the rest of the macro finishes running.

Do i need to call the splash screen from a certain point in the macro I wish it to be displayed during? I dont want the macro to stop running while the splash screen is showing.

Formula That Runs A Macro When Data Is Present

May 12, 2008

I work on csv files which are created everytime someone makes a change in certain parameters used by a robot, however when opening these in excel they are nonsensical.

This can be changed with a few macros etc. but my manager would like it to be a "press one button and it works" procedure.

So what im looking for is some sort of function that checks if there is any data in the next column of the spreadsheet and runs a macro in that case and only that case.

Pivot's Data Source Changes When Macro Runs
