Macros Not Recording Properly

Oct 31, 2013

I have an excel file emailed to me everyday. It is a daily tracking of our fleet and I manipulate it before printing it and giving it to management. I dont know why when I try to record the macro and then use it it hides all columns.

The report has columns A-N. I hide B, F-G, I, M-N. When recording I hide multiple columns across.

I have done similar macros with other reports, no problem.

Combining 2 Macros To Loop Properly

Nov 6, 2008

This code calculates a value for column K when you punch in a number in column J (in any rows 17 to 116, separately). The first problem is that when you delete a value out of J, the value stays in K for some rows (where it should only contain a value if J does). I'm guessing it has something to do with the triggering event that I put in bold. Secondly, I need to be able to protect row K at all times from deletion or entering another value. It ONLY should calculate a value based on J. So I need to use the module (below the code) and I want to integrate it into the code or call it in a module. It's not working properly because it prevents ANY and ALL changes, even the ones caused by new values entered in J (which should be allowed). It should only prevent deletion or manually entering a value on the worksheet. So the bottom line is that when you enter a value into J, unless column E says "Annuity" it will calculate using the formula given. If you delete J, K should go away as well. And at no time can you delete or manually change K. And when you switch values in E, it must reloop to check if it says "Annuity" or not, and if not, it must clear J (which clears K).

And lastly, this thing is brutally slow, so maybe there's an easier way to write it. Sorry for all the detail, but I think it's an easy fix for someone who knows programming, but i don't know how to put it together! NML Inventory is the Activesheet.

A Few Macros Dont Work Properly With Personal.xls

Jun 18, 2008

I wondered if I could pick your brains and hopefully get some answers to my problem. I have recently been using the Personal.xls worksheet to make all my Macros available to all open workbooks so that I don't have to cut and paste Macros each time I wanted to use them.

Now I know you sometimes have to make certain adjustments to Macros in order to make them work globally. I wondered if I could find out how to amend the codes below to make them work properly. Thanks.

The first code Macro below deletes all worksheets in a workbook except for the currently active sheet. However it no longer works.

Recording Previous Value In A Cell

Feb 23, 2003

I have a DDE-based worksheet, that is obtaining data from Townsend Analytics' RealTick Server software. One of my cells is a DDE formula that retrieves the current BID ask price, for a given stock.

When a new BID price comes in to my designated cell, I need to somehow capture the existing BID price, before this new one updates in the requisite cell. I want to be able to store this "old" value in another cell.

Unfortunately, there is no "pre-cell" event trapping. I've tried to work with the worksheet_change event, which passes an argument of the effected cells, but the cell value has already changed, by the time this event has been called.

This problem sounds simple, but I am at a loss for a solution. Does anybody out there in EXCEL-land have a solution ?

Paste Special When Recording

Mar 14, 2007

On my spreadsheet I want to move a column at the start of the day (as one column is todays values, the one previous is yesterdays). I have tried the following but it doesnt like it:-

Sub RQV()
Dim warn As Integer
warn = MsgBox("Do you wish to move RQV data to yesterday?", vbYesNoCancel)
Sheet1. Unprotect
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub

It comes out with a run time error 1004? It needs to be a paste special as I just want the values put in. I have tried recording a macro to see how the vba code works, but it doesnt give me the option to paste special for some reason and I presume this is why the error occurs.

Cleaning Up After Recording A Macro

May 15, 2007

I frequently use the record option to start off my macros. I realize this usually results in recorded events which are not absolutely necessary (recording a print macro is one that is full of excess line items). I then try and combine what I have recorded with what I have garnered from this wonderful website. If my spreadsheets are small - and I am not writing code to pass any inspections - is there a need to go back and clean up?

Recording Multiple Cell Values

Sep 22, 2012

Say i wanted to track the changes in a cell, i.e. if a number changes in a cell it records the new number in a new column. The following macro achieves this for one value; say type a value in a15, it records the number changes in column D;

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DestCell As Range
With Target
If .Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(.Cells, Me.Range("a15")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(.Value) Then Exit Sub
If IsError(.Value) Then Exit Sub


But what if need to track the value of 4 cell changes in different columns, and record these values into different colums of their own? So for example, if i had a value in a1, and wanted to paste the changes into D; if i had a value in a2, and wanted to paste the changes into E; if i had a value in b7, and wanted to paste/record the changes into F etc etc.

I thought about running the macro for each cell but it wont work, for example i tried;

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DestCell As Range
With Target
If .Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(.Cells, Me.Range("a1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(.Value) Then Exit Sub
If IsError(.Value) Then Exit Sub

Copying And Pasting While Recording Macro

Sep 26, 2013

I am having trouble with a project for school. The instructions are: (In Worksheet 1) Type Your Name. Now, begin recording a Macro. Copy and Paste your name from Worksheet 1 to Worksheet 2. Fill in the background and edit the font. End.

Here is an example of the coding.

Application.CutCopyMode = False

Now, according to the instructions I should be able to run the Macro in any worksheet....but anytime I run the Macro in any other worksheet I just get a yellow block without my name there.

Recording Info On Weekly Basis

Nov 17, 2008

I have a training matrix. The following letters represent something F, P & S. and are placed in the matrix. On a seperate sheet I calculate these using the COUNTIF(B2:E7,"F") so on and so on. This is done because the matrix is quite vast and to sit and look through would take an age and I'm already nearly retired lol.
1st question:
Also in the matrix are dates when a student has finally passed a subject is it possible to use the same formula to calculate all these .
2nd question:
I also want to be able to record on a weekly basis how many new subjects have been trained out but don't know where to start . i would like a chart indicating for instance Week 1 5 subjects, Week 2 25 subjects. What i don't want to happen though is when you add Weeks 2 data for Week 1's to increase with it.

Vba Code Recording Dde Linked Data

Jul 13, 2005

In A2 is the Stock price, and B2 the time of the update.Now every time it updates A2 and B2 get overwritten.I need some code that will save/ record the the stock price on the hour, every hour. I then need the highest and the lowest price within that hour, and lastly the price at the very end of that hour. (example)


I received what I think may work, but I dont know how to write this in VBA. If the time of the new value received > than B2 + 1 second, create new row where Open=High=Low=Close else if (last column=new value,if new value>high column then high column=new value,if new value<low coulmn then low column=new value.)

Encourage Enabling Of Macros: Disable Macros When Opening Then The Worksheet Menu Bar And Other Command Bars Are Still Available

Aug 26, 2009

I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.

Recording History Of Multiple Cells At Same Time?

May 28, 2014

I am looking to record the history of multiple cells at one time instead of as soon as I hit enter after changing one cell's value. There are other threads concerning just the history of a single cell as you input another value and hit enter.

So for example, I have multiple cells that are calculated using formula's in their respective cells using input cells in the worksheet. I will be changing the input cell's values in the worksheet to update the calculated cells. I want to record the input cell's values as well as the new calculated values at one time after changing the input cells. I dont know if I can add a button to a cell or something to that accord to accomodate this. I am still new to vba coding in excel.

From there forward I will interate this as new situations arise and want to record the input and output (calculated) cells on another tab or worksheet along with the date it was recorded.

Recording Macro Using Cell References In Worksheet

Jan 18, 2007

I am working on this project that involves opening several Excel spreadsheets and copying the data into a new workbook. The problem is that the names of the various worksheets I want to copy change every day - it always reflects the date. I open 7 workbooks, go to the sheet named (for example)01.17.07, copy a static range and then paste it to a new workbook.

Is it possible to record a macro and use a cell reference in the destination workbook (the one I want to copy to) to tell it which worksheet to copy? So, for example, I would type 01.17.07 in cell A1 of the new workbook and the macro would look for the sheet named 01.17.07 when running? Then tomorrow, I could type 01.18.07 and it would know to look for a different sheet?
