Make Button Flash
I have a command button that I want to appear to be flashing (by continually changing the button's font colour text) which a user can click at any time. I can (almost) do this now by using 'Application.Wait Now + TimeValue', but this doesn't allow the user to click the button until the code has finished running.

Cell To Flash And Play A Sound
What I want to achieve is for say if the value in cell A1 equals the value in cell B1, then cell A1 to flash a background colour (eg. red), and also play a sound. I assume this can only be achieved using VBA, of which I am not conversant with. I am searching the forum for answers, but not yet found one that addresses my problem exactly (being a complete VBA newbie). In the meantime if some could assist please or point me to a thread that addresses this query.

How To Have A Message Pop Up And Blink For A Few Seconds Then Go Away
With all the formulas working (or at least through testing so far they are), I am now in the make the worksheets fancy mode.

I want to have a message pop up when the leader of the meet changes. I would love it if it would blink for a few seconds to alert the individuals looking at the worksheet but then it would disapear so as not to be annoying.

For example:
In event 1, team a is first, and team b is second.
Event 2 finishes, and I post the results in the spreadsheet.

In event 2, team b takes over the lead and team a is now second Place.

I wold like a message to appear (for a few seconds) saying (and blinking something like "Team A, Just Took Over 1st Place!" and then goes away.

Userform Control Blink
This code works fine on a normal userform But I declared the userform with "New" in my calling procedure

myForm As New form

How can I get it to work??
Or more interesting, why is it not working
Also what exactly is the advantage of using the keyword New
I have propertys set in the userform, but other than that..
Can someone tell me if the load function in this case is better or not

Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Private Sub cmd_click
Call blink
End Sub

Public Sub Blink()
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To 20

' set color
Form.cmd.BackColor = &HFFFFFF
Call Sleep(60)

Form.cmd.BackColor = &HFF& .....................

Macro Causes Screen To Flash
I created a macro, assigned to a menu button, that selects and prints a range on the active sheet. I created the macro with the recorder, then edited it to eliminate the excess. When I run the macro, though, it takes up to ten seconds to print the page and the screen flashes repeatedly while it's running. I also noticed that the length of the delay and the number of flashes seems to be related to the number of lines of code, because the delay was much longer and the flashing more excessive before editing.

Sub PrintContrReview_Click()
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$Y$5:$Z$20"
With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
.LeftHeader = "&F"
.RightHeader = "&A &D"
.LeftMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(1.25)
.Zoom = 95

End With
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End Sub

So what is the cause of the flash and the delay, and how do I eliminate them?

Show Flash .swf File On Userform
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Call ShockwaveFlash1.SetVariable("testVar", "Message B")
'This sets the _ value of the variable in the Flash Project.
End Sub

Private Sub ShockwaveFlash1_FSCommand(ByVal command As String, ByVal args As String)
Text1.Text = args
'this catches the action sent by Flash, and uses it in the TextBox.
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
Call ShockwaveFlash1.LoadMovie(0, CurDir + "/vbSample.swf")
'This loads the movie that was made into level 0 of the project.
End Sub

(I got from this link As you can see I have adapted it to work in Excel 2007. Now - when i first run it - the flash file loads and shows in the userform. The only nag being that the .swf file doesnt pass the text into the textbox on the userform. But once i exit the Excel workbook and reload it - the .swf file doesnt show up at all no matter what i do.

Make A Cell Value = The Furthest Value To The Right
How do I make a cell value update to equal the furthest value to the right in the same row?

This cell just needs to look along the right in its own row and grab the value furthest away to the right. It will be a letter value, not a number. eg, AB or AC or AD or AE. It will not (in this case) need to look further than about 150 columns or cells.

If/then To Make Cell Blank
I am using a “borrowed” formula from a coworker that I do not really understand however it is working for me, sort of.


What this does is read the range of cells and immediately fails a quality check if it is in a critical cell, or fails if multiple non critical items fail.

I want to use an if/then to make cell blank if there is no data in one particular cell (which means no quality inspection performed). Here is what I tried:


The leaving the cell blank part of the formula works however it allows the remainder of the formula to only work if “fail” appears in the first cell it reads (in this case V18). If the “fail” appears in any of the other critical cells, it does not work at all.

Also as a side project not sure what the substituting to $R$2 does so if anyone knows how to clean this up, let me know.

Make A Cell's Values Become A Formula
I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4


The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?

Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero
I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

Make Vlookup Move On From An Empty Cell?
Hello there,

I am making a spreadsheet that tracks children's progress in school through the year.

I have a vlookup that turns their levels (2c,2b,2a,3c,3b,3a etc) into numbers so that the number of sublevels they have progressed during the year can be reported.


However, when children join through the year, they will not have data to go in the 'starting grade' box, so I was wondering if it would be possible to make vlookup see that cell E5 is empty, and so look in cell F5 instead. It might even, perhaps, have to look in cell G5 if they join the class after Christmas.

Make Button Fill Next Available Cell In Column
in my spreadsheet (attached), i want it so that when someone clicks a button, it will fill in the next available cell in column A. For example, when I click on the "Create" button on the green NIPRNet side, then it'll fill in the next available cell in column A (cell A4) with "(N) Created Account". Then, if I click on "Unlock" on the red SIPRNet Side, then it will fill in cell A5 with "(S) Unlocked Account". and so on, and so on, down column A.

At the moment, i have it so that all the cells in column A are dropdown menus. But I want to eliminate the drop-down menus and use buttons instead.

How To Make Sure That Only Positive Numbers Are Entered In A Cell
I am trying to restrict data input to a cell for only positive numbers. Currently, I have used data validation to accept decimals and numbers greater than zero. The cell is formatted for percentage with 2 decimal places. The "error message" alerts you that you have to have positive numbers only. The catch is that when the error message comes up and you use the 'retry' button, the entry is multiplied by 100.

Make Formula Pick Up Filename From A Different Cell...
I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!$I$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The “1001” bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say “1002” to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the “1002” bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I’m not sure how to work that into the formula.
