A certain macro (or is it a VB script?) in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet has to be manually recalculated every time I open the file. The only way I've found to do this is to click in the formula bar and hit Enter, or else click the green check mark to accept the formula. The spreadsheet is set to recalculate automatically, so I do not understand why this is happening.
Another wrinkle is that I can't locate the specification/definition of the macro. I checked the Developer menu on the ribbon and looked in the Visual Basic and Macros lists, but could not see the definition of the macro in question. Another user created the spreadsheet but I am unable to contact him...
I have a macro that can individually turn on or off the EnableCalculation property of each worksheet in a workbook (that is, set the property to True or False). It worked very nicely for a while, and made some of my more formula-laden workbooks much more tractable. But after a while, when I would turn the EnableCalculation back to True for any worksheet, the formulas on that sheet were still frozen (would not recalculate at all), and could only be unfrozen by going to each cell and doing [F2] [Enter]. Just to rule out the obvious, Automatic calculation is turned on, and I have made sure that the macro is successfully returning the EnableCalculation property back to True.
It seems that if I physically go into the VB Editor and manually (through the GUI, as opposed to programmatically) switch the EnableCalculation property back to False, then back to True again, then it will revive the formulas. But this is silly, and I was hoping there was a better solution... maybe someone has encountered this before? If it's just another Microsoft bug, I don't know what's the trigger is, but I imagine it's when you save/close the workbook with some of the sheets' EnableCalculation properties still set to False. I know the property is not stored/saved with the workbook, i.e. all sheets will reset EnableCalculation to True when the workbook is re-opened, but maybe it's still causing a glitch.
My excel file consists of 15 sheets, thereof 4 that are purely graphs, the others have tables with formulas. When opening the file or changing values, the entire sheet is being recalculated every time which takes a few seconds. Is this normal or can one tell to recalculate at another stage?
The activities sheet has a date macro (double click in date cell). The workbook has a macro for the footer information.
My sheet has a very simple formula in a lot of the cells that simply say this cell in sheet A should equal a cell on sheet B in the same workbook.
I deleted the contents of the cells in sheet B, however the cells in sheet A did not update. It still shows the contents of sheet B that were there before I deleted them. The sheet is set to calculate automatically and I even commanded it to force calculation.
Any clues as to why my sheet will not update?
If I cut a formula from a cell in Sheet A and paste right back, it updates correctly to reflect the cell that was deleted in Sheet B.
I have a list of asset numbers that I am displaying to a user. I have a cell where the user is to type in the asset number. What I would like is to be able to display a list of matches in another group of cells.
I.e. - if the cell is populated with "D49", the list on the right will contain all asset numbers starting with "D49"...
I can do this easily enough if I wait for the "Change" event on the worksheet - but this necessitates the user typing some in, hitting enter, etcetera.
Is there any way to trigger an event per keystroke instead of on worksheet.change?
I have a cell which sums up a lot of random number generators (after going through several other functions) and therefore every time the worksheet recalculates the value of this cell changes.
Is there any way I can get this cell to print it's value say, 1000 times, each print one cell below the previous, with a recalculate in-between each print? I'm guessing this needs scripts? Or is there a way of just directly inputting this into 1000 cells and letting it fly?
I want to make a drop down menu whereby each choice in the drop down would re-calculate my workbook.
Let me explain:-
I want to make a drop down menu in sheet 1 with 3 choices. The 3 choices come from sheet 2 (row 1, column A, B, C). I have data in sheet 2 in rows 2 through to 6 in columns A, B, C. I have sheet 3 that currently uses the data from sheet 2 row 2 through to 6 for column A.
I want to be able to use the drop down menu in sheet 1 to choose either column A, B, or C in sheet 2 and then re-calculate the data in sheet 3 accordling.
I have the drop down menu made now.... but how can i re-calculate the values in sheet 3 after choosing a choice in the drop down?
I need to create a drop down menu or something of that sort, that allows the user to select what units he wants his results to be in.
When a particular units system is selected, the results must be recalculated and displayed in their respective cells.
No matter which units are selected, the units must always be displayed in the same set of cells, that means the formula or reference in the set of those output cells must change automatically, based on the units selection.
I am using Excel 2007. I have read that if you open an excel 2003 document, that has external links, the links will be recacluated automatically. How do I change the settings in '07 so that the links are not recalculated when I open a 2003 excel file?
When I have a column of data, say reference A1 to A9 with a formula beneath it in A10 being that the formula is = SUM(A1:A9) when I update any of the data in A1 to A9 the figure in A10 does not update. The only way to get it to update is to click in A10 where the formula is and then click in the formula bar and press enter; the formula seems to recalculate after this and it works or you need to save it and it works. It should work right after any change in the data being added.
I have made some UDFs (custom functions) using VBA, when the problem is that they don't update automatically like standard functions. I have numerous tickboxes which cause text to become bolded, and then my function counts the total, only including bolded text:
Function CountGamerScore() As Long Dim i As Integer Dim strScore As String Dim intDigit As Integer i = 6 For i = 6 To 52 strScore = "L" & i If Range(strScore).Font.Bold = True Then intDigit = Left(Range(strScore).Value, Len(Range(strScore).Value) - 1) CountGamerScore = CountGamerScore + intDigit End If Next i End Function
However, if I untick or tick a checkbox, the bold and unbold works fine (done in another sub, but the function does not update the value in the cell for total.
Therefore, is there any VBA code that will tell Excel to recalculate formulae??
I need a macro to automatically update 50 cells (currently done manually) with the calculation below. The calculation is different in each cell ie a different range is specified but the concept is the same.
SHEET 1 remains static $A$1 remains static for the particular cell - each cell has a different value
$?$ ? moves to next column number each time the macro is run $?$99 99 remains static - each cell has a different value
I am working in a fairly large worksheet, and I realized that when I make changes to it, sometimes some of the cells do no recalculate. The only way I can get them to recalculate is by clicking into the cell, and then hitting return.
The issue is that I don't know which ones are failing to recalculate unless I click into each individual cell and hit return to see if it changes. This would be logistically impossible given the size of my sheet.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?
I have two sheets. Watchbill and Roster. The Roster contains a list of names that are randomly generated to the watchbill sheet into more than 60 seperate cells. My problem is the names are not being distributed fairly. If I had 20 names and 20 cells, it only uses say 12 of them and repeats 8 names, thus leaving 8 persons out of the generation completely. I did not know how to fix this so I used a system to identify when a name was repeating in the series of cells by displaying Repeat in the cell beneath it. I then had the names that were not placed on the watchbill (the other 8 not used) highlight themselves in blue on the roster sheet so I could manually insert them on a third sheet into a cell set to override the repeating name on the watchbill. This was my back door system to solve my repeating names problem. However this takes forever. I want some vba that will identify the cell with the "repeat" underneath it and automatically recalculate the cell until it doesn't repeat. I only want the cell recalculated, not the sheet. This code would have to do this for about 70 cells making sure no names repeat at all, unless there isn't enough personnel to fill the positions, then it would allow the names to repeat. Can that be done and what would the code be?
I have a data set that I constantly run a pivot table. I have the pivot table run on a separate sheet each time. Since I run it every time I was wondering if there is a way to set up a pivot table to run automatically and run it on a separate sheet.
Lastly, if that is possible, if the data set changes and the pivot table runs automatically will the pivot table recalculate based on the new data.
I'm trying to build a price index in which when a user changes the value in any one cells, the other cells on that row would change dynamically. In other words, if a user enters 25% in the "discount %" column, the "net price" column would reflect this discount ( attached is a sample sheet). I thought I had this covered but ran in to some problems I can't figure out on my own.
The worksheet_change function only inserts a formula in to a cell once. After a value has been added to that cell manually, the function doesn't insert the formula in it again. Also, there are empty cells inside the price index and I don't know how to take them into consideration in my code. And for last, if, and only if a discount % is entered a phrase "Z106" should appear in the last column. But if any of the net prices are manually entered, a phrase "ZSOP" should appear in the last column.
I receive an order spreadsheet from a customer see attached .rar file. I have had to compress as it is 101kb.
Each row is one order with the information of what is required including the data.
Some orders need to be dispatched on the day before (these orders are standard and are always dispatched the day before.)
I would like a solution that would let me define the orders dispatched the day before, remove them and the total from the original day and recalculate the data. There is a week’s worth of data that is sent from the customer and the orders may be duplicated during the week but need to be fulfilled.
Attached is also an example of how the data could be sorted
Nine Elms Sheet the data would be imported from the customer, Criteria would define the orders that are dispatched early, The pre tabs would have the orders found that meet the criteria set and totalled (pre Monday would be Tuesdays dispatched early) The day tabs would have the other orders totalled after the early orders have been removed.
I designed a spreadsheet which uses a lot of VLOOKUPs and it takes a very long time to recalculate. I don't know if there is another way I could do this, but this just seemed to make sense and it works just the way we want it but it just takes too long. Here is what the spreadsheet is designed to do:
We have data that is pasted into excel from another source. The data is broken up into account number, date, check number, and amount. Multiple payments from the same account can occur in one month so the data must be totaled. There is a custom function called concatif which works just like sum if but concatenates text. There are VLOOKUPs performed on the account number and the corresponding date, check number, and amount are inserted in the table.
I have an interesting question for everybody here. Let me see how to best explain it.
I start in the code making sure column Action Plan completion has a value in it. Copying in the issue modified column if neccesary.
'Back fill last modified 'I need to start with the first data row (3) and the action plan completion column Let intcurrentrow = 3 Let intcurrentcol = intactionplancompletion Do Until intcurrentrow > intmaxrow If Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).Value = "" Then Let Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).Value = Cells(intcurrentrow, intissuemodified).Value 'Need to ensure that everything is formatted as a date Let Cells(intcurrentrow, intcurrentcol).NumberFormat = "m/d/yy h:mm AM/PM" End If Let intcurrentrow = intcurrentrow + 1 Loop
Later, I place this formula in a given cell.
=If(I9="Open-Remediated",M9-K9, If(I9="Closed-Remediated and Validated",M9-K9,"" ))
The info I copied above is placed into the column K.
When I run the macro, the cell formula outputs "#value".
However, if I go double-click then enter the cell calculates just fine.
I've tried excels overall recalculate function, but that doesn't change this.
Does anybody know how to simulate a double-click on a cell?
