I have a userform that has a listbox that contains data in 7 columns. I also have a command button that when clicked allows the user to edit the data in whatever row of the list box is highlighted. This works fine.
I decided to have a double click in the listbox on a row do the same thing. So I simply picked the double click event and called the command button sub. When I try this, it runs the command button sub, but then it runs the userform Activate sub. This is a problem as it does things that I do not want to occur again.
I then decided to put the command buttom code in a separate sub and then call that sub on the double click -- same result.
Then I just put the exact code that I have in the command button into the double click event -- still does it.
Anyone know why this happens, I see no reason for it. It works great in the command button, but with double-click it run the userform Activate sub when it is done.
Here is the code that runs (if called by a command button it works fine, if called by a double_click in the listbox, it runs the userform_activate sub):
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
I have a spreadsheet with sales figures for a company over a few months. I want to create a macro that will insert a new month after the last month. I have got it to work for the first month but after that it will just insert 2 black cells after.
i have a named cell called Average_slales_per_month that is next to the last month all the time.
I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.
What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.
I have a protected template and unprotected source worksheets - - - what I would like to happen is for the macro to start and if the source worksheet cell B3 equals "Report Total" then stop - otherwise copy template worksheet then copy 6 specific cells from the source to paste values to specific cells on the newly created worksheet (B_ to C7, D_ to I7, E_ to C9, F_ to K9, A_ to C11, M_ to K11 and then K13=F13-30)
After that then start all over again unless the next row’s cell (B4, B5, B6, . . .) is "Report Total" then stop - - - the row count could be from one to a couple hundred.
Here is what I have so far but I know that with each copy the name will change and as it goes down the source file each row will change and I also need help with that.
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
I am trying to run a macro when I double click on a certain cell (D34). The cell has data in it (Southeast NSC). What I am expecting to happen is once I double click on the cell the macro will run the retrieve and I will end up at expense chart page.
The macro I am trying to run is an Essbase retrieve.
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?)
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.
i need to make a macro that takes workbooks or files and runs them through another macro. i already have the 2nd macro done and it is working perfectly i just need to know how to make the one that finds the other files and runs them all through the macro i already made. My boss said that he will have about 150-200 files to run through this macro.
I am making a checklist for a Pda program. I need the active cell to highlight green and put an x in it for a specified range. This I have
The next part I cannot figure out - after the cell have been highlighted once, and properly colored with an x, how can I get it to delete the fill and clear the x on the next click.
Dim x As Long Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) ' Set the highlighted cell to a color. If Not Intersect(Target, Range("d28:d34")) Is Nothing Then Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 4 ' green = true 'Set the highlighted cell to contain a text character If Not Intersect(Target, Range("d28:d34")) Is Nothing Then ActiveCell = "x" End If End If End Sub
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 Activewindow.View=xlNormal
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
I have created a macro in xl2000 which was working fine - although through corporate upgrades my machine has now been upgraded with xl2003 and the macro runs for a bit and then crashes on the code below, although it only highlights teh 'rnum'
rnum = ActiveCell.Row Is there a difference between xl2000 & xl2003?
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.
i have a button on my workbook1 that opens another workbook (lets call it workbook2) and automatically runs a macro on opening it. Once opened i have a button on workbook2 to close itself. I then go back to see workbook1. This all works but then when i click on the button to open the workbook2 again it opens but the macro does not run.
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...
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.??
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.

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.
I got a code that makes an animated userform popup (web browser in userform). that works smoothly. but, when I have that code before two more codes. The userform does show, but the animation does not. Until all the following two codes are finished running. The purpose was to have the animation running while the two codes are being processed.
Main Code: Code with 3 different codes.
Private Sub cmdAdd_Click() Dim iRow As Long If Sheets("LookupLists"). Range("N2").Value = "EXACT" Then Application. ScreenUpdating = False ' Loading user form popup Call ShowFrm Call CopyEmplInfo End If Call MergeCells End Sub
