Macro To Automatically Sort Multiple Column Groups Separately As Data Is Entered

May 20, 2014

I have a worksheet that contains multiple task lists, each having two columns, a "Priority" field and a "Description" field. The data should be sorted by Priority first and by Description second. The header row is 5 and the data is in rows 6 through 50. The first list is in A5:B50, the second C5:D50, and so on until the sixth list in K5:L50. I have a macro that works for one task list, but cannot get it to function for multiple task lists. Below is the macro that functions for the first task list. It is in the code for the sheet tab.

Option Explicit
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target1 As Range)
If Target1.Column = 1 Then

Sort Groups Of Data And Maintain Rows?

Jan 3, 2014

I need to sort groups of data by a single cell in the group, compared to other single cells in other groups of data. The groups are always the same number of rows but vary in the number of rows. There is an example file below. The red is the company name and the green is what I need to sort the group by, as compared to the other groups. This example only has a few, the real file has thousands of groups. I want to sort the companies by the totals in green...they are currently in alphabetical order. There must be a way to do this without going the VBA option.

Macro To Sort Multiple Rows Of Data

Sep 16, 2008

I have a report that I drop down into Excel that is a transaction report for securities. The data for each security is in two rows. I would like to write a macro that would sort each two-line group by a certain cell in the group. If I could make the macro request the number of rows and columns in each range and the cell address of the cell to sort by, I would be able to use this macro for many different reports. Also, there has to be some way of telling the macro where to begin and where to end. I have some experience with macros although generally I "Frankenstein".

Automatically Open Comment Box When Data Is Entered.

Dec 22, 2008

I have a spreadsheet where we calculate lost time of machinery and how much money is lost. Every day someone enters the hours that the machines were down and then enters comment in that cell stating what happened or what the resolve was. So for example Machine A runs 24 hours a day, but 12-19-08 it had mechanical issues and was down for 2 hours, so the entrant will enter 22 in that cell, then have to right click back in that cell, go to insert comment and enter "need to change belts." Then if he finds out later that they were down another two hours he would have to change the hours, right click in the cell and edit comment. What we have been coming across is that after awhile he just enters the hours and not the comment. Besides firing a lazy operator I would like to make it more user friendly and ensure that the data entry person is entering the comment.

I would like after the hours are entered in the cell for the comment box to automatically open. I figured there has to be a formula to do it, but i am not at an advanced level. Can you help me?

Automatically Lock Cells When Data Entered

Apr 16, 2008

I am trying to apply a conditional cell lock to a worksheet. I am using Excel 2003, not 2007.

In column J, I have a list validation being used. The default value is "Not Claimed", I want to lock the cell from being edited once the value has been changed to any other value on the list.

The worksheet will be password protected to prevent entries into static fields (A:I & N:P).

I also would like to give the user the ability to unlock a specific cell, not the entire worksheet, by entering a password or something if they accidently choose a wrong value from the list.

I have column Q and beyond available if I need to have the password entered somewhere else.

I have attached a sample of the file I am working with.

Extend Formula Automatically As Data Entered

May 21, 2008

I found the following code here.

For data entered into column A, it copies the formulas from columns B:E in the row above to the current row.

It works great except fot the first row (A9) where it copies the header row (B8:E8).

How can I get it to not copy when data is entered into A9?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)
Dim c As Range, i As Long
On Error Resume Next
Set c = Intersect(Target, Columns(1))
If c Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(c.Offset(-1, 0)) Or Not IsEmpty(c.Offset(1, 0)) Then Exit Sub
i = c.Row
Application.EnableEvents = False
Range("B" & i - 1 & ":E" & i - 1).Copy Range("B" & i & ":E" & i)
Application.EnableEvents = True
On Error Goto 0
End Sub

Comparing And Sorting Multiple Column Groups?

Feb 28, 2014

I'm am trying to take multiple column-groups and sort them by product ID number.

I am trying to put together a sales record for the past 26 months for around 2000 different items and sorting them manually would obviously be a nightmare.

I would like to sort them so that all the drugs with the same NDC (prod ID) have the correct data for each month displayed on the correct row for that NDC. Right now I have each set of data for that month sorted by product ID number but some months we used certain products and others we did not. Is there any sort of Macro that I could use? What I am trying to do I attached two files. The "before" and my desired "after".

starting point.xlsx
end product.xlsx

Automatically Color Cells In Relation To Data Entered

Aug 30, 2013

how to do basic formulas in Excel but I are hoping that there is a macro or a VBA or something that can be made which might work for what i need.

I have decided to start a small tour shop (I make the reservations for guests with a hotel in the area and take them on tours of our region) and are looking to make a booking sheet for each month. Nothing complicated just simple. see the attached .xlsx file.

I was wondering if there is a way that when the fields in column A & B are filled in if it could automatically color the corresponding dates in for the same row in the calendar area? like I have manually done on sheet "October 2013"

Macro To Sort And Align Employee Data In Multiple Cols To A Header Row

Jul 9, 2014

I have an issue with an export file which is produced in CSV format and needs to be aligned. I have attached a sample of what I refer to.

My Source excel file looks like:

ABC A-101 B - 202
DEF B-203 C - 100

The destination should align with the relevant column headers and place a blank if it doesn't match. Other have queried a similar thing, however my header and data and description is actually in the same cell with a dash separating them.

The output I want is:

ABC 101 202
DEF 203 100

There are multiple row of employees with varied column headings as its dependent on what system access the user has. The headings i.e. A,B,C for example is a fixed number of headers.

In my real data set the headers represents a 3 letter system prefix e.g. ZCR,ILP etc

Create Multiple Files For Multiple Groups Of Data

May 9, 2008

I have one main Excel file with information (in example file - columns A & B). I want to create 4 other Excel files that will draw from the main one (in example file - columns D, F, H, & J). I want the information in Excel file A, B, C, and D to be continuous information that matches the main file. For example, the letter A matches up with numbers 1,3,4,10,11,13,15,17, and 19 in the main file. When I open Excel file A, I want a continuous list of these numbers.

Macro To Sort Automatically

Nov 8, 2008

I am now trying to write a macro which is a little over my head and was hoping some one may have some idea how to do it or have some code that is similiar and I can try to customise it myself. So here goes.

Basically all that happens is I paste data into a work book that always has two columns. The first column is a list of names and the second column is a list of numbers. I need to sort that information automaitcally every time it is pasted into the work sheet as follows.

1) Once any information is pasted to sheet 1 run macro automatically with no user interaction

2) All numbers must be rounded up or down first before sorting. If it is say 2.4 then it would become 2 and it it was 2.6 it would become 3.

3) Then move the numbers only from a specified column from sheet1 to sheet 2 and split them up into seperate columns based on the following results.

a) 0 - 3 gets moved to column B
b) 4 -7 get moved to column C
c) 8 - 10 gets moved to column d

4) Delete both columns from sheet1 after this is run so the user can re paste new information

5) If a user does this again then do the same but move into a new set of columns e f g and so on until the work book ends.

Summing Same Section Of Multiple Tabs Separately

Oct 8, 2012

I have 199 tabs in which i have, for example, sales data month by month. I want to consolidate into one tab the total sales per tab. I.e. so that i have a list of tabs 1 to 199 with the sales for the year for each tab. I don't want to sum the same cell across each tab.

Is there a way of doing this without having to do 'sum(tab1...)' for my tab 1 sales and then 'sum(tab2...)' for my tab 2 sales etc?

many times i am confrunted with excel files containing one sheet that has many tables on it. i need to print each table so that it fits on one page, but these tables are not formatted so that they fit, therefore i need a fast way to make each table fit on 1 printed page, no matter how big it is or how it is centered on the page size from page layout(many times the table is bigger than the page layout size). i tried selecting each table holding down ctrl and then hitting set print area, but most of the times this doesnt work, i still get part of the first table and the begining of the second table on the second printed page and so on, which is not good.

Automatically Sort New Data

Jan 6, 2007

I have (what seems to me) a somewhat complicated request. Iím trying to do a custom workbook without using VB (if possible). Iím trying to design a file list that can be updated easily by anyone. The new row of information needs to be entered (by a data form maybe?) and then automatically alphabetized by Ď case nameĒ. See below. I donít know Excel formulas that well. This seems fairly easy, but I am at a loss how to do it.

I know I can add the new record it to the last row and the Sort by case name, but I wanted to have others do it, and when they try to enter and sort the spreadsheet it always gets messed-up.

Transpose Inconsistent Data Row Groups In Column

Jul 1, 2008

I have a data set in an Excel spreadsheet entered as one column of data. It is names with addresses, phone numbers, job title, etc. I want to select and transpose each person in the list so when I am done the person's name is in column A, Company name in column B and so on. The problem is the information listed is not the same for each person - so there is a different number of rows for each person. The names are in bold text though, so I need to select from one cell with bold text to the row BEFORE the next row with bold text and transpose the data for each selection. I found this forum by finding an old question here that is similar at Copy based on Bold Paste-transpose provided in that post and it produced no result.

Sort Data. And Automatically Fills

Feb 2, 2010

Scenario: You have two columns in a spreadsheet. Column A is a text input and column B is a tracking number for each row. Using the ISTEXT statement, I had it configured so that when a cell in column B recognized a TRUE statement in an adjoining cell in column A it would then assign a number. B1 is assigned a number when A1 has text.

What I would like to happen is build the spreadsheet so that after the user enters text in column A, column B automatically fills in so that the user doesn't have to manually enter it. I've figured out how to do this if the data is never sorted, however, if you sort the data then the tracking numbers don't follow and are really a mess.

Is there a way to auto fill column B and at the same time, make it so that the tracking number that is originally assigned to the row follows with A when sorted?
I've tried using =MAX but run into circular reference issues.
