Make Button Flash

Dec 1, 2006

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

Feb 5, 2010

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

Aug 27, 2009

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.

Save To Flash Drive?

May 18, 2012

I have a an excel workbook that is distributed on a flash drive. Currently a Save As Macro copies "A1" as the file name and then opens a screen to allows the user to save that filename to a location that the user selects. What I would like to have happen is for a command button to start a macro that would automatically save the file back to the flash drive that the master workbook is located.

Macro Causes Screen To Flash

Jun 9, 2006

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

Nov 20, 2007

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 http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/flashvb.htm) 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 Userform Show Data From Spreadsheet And Add Delete Or Make New Entry

Jan 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet on sheet 1 with a list of customers and their information. So on column A I have the customer number (i.e. k968, e37, p528,...), on column B i have the customer's name, on column C the street's name, on Column D the house number, on column E the zip code and finally the city on column F.

Right now there are around 600 customers in this list.

I have made a userform with a combobox in which I want to select an existing customer (pulled from the spreadsheet). On the same userform I have textboxes (customer number, name, street, number, zip, city). When I select a customer in the combobox, I want this customer's info to show up in the textboxes. I want to be able to change the info and hit Next to store the changes in the spreadsheet. When I do not select a customer from the combobox, I want to add new info in the textboxes and hit Next to store this info as a new customer. The userform also has a delete button. Then I select a customer in the combobox, this customer (and it's info) should be deleted from the spreadsheet when i hit Delete. So the spreadsheet is variable in length.

How To Make Cell Value Equal Negative Of Cell Value On Different Tab

Sep 30, 2013

I have a monthly forecast document that is updated by an operator monthly. At the end of the month, the operator presses a "Copy Accrual" macro that copies accruals for the month and stores them on a seperate tab. After sending the document back to the Finance team (necessary step due to software complications), Finance will send the operator back an updated file at beginning of next month. The operator than presses a "Paste Reversal" macro that is supposed to input the negative of the accrual stored in the seperate tab. The problem is that it is posting as the same value (not negative of value). I tried recording a Macro to fix this, but it did not work. An example of the code that came up with is:

Worksheets("Weekly Forecast").Select
Range("B9").FormulaR1C1 = "=-Accruals!RC[-4]"
Range("H9").Select
Selection.Copy
Range("H10:H33").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

Thoughts on what to do? I think the two things that are throwing me off is the negative, and moving between the different sheets.

If/then To Make Cell Blank

Jul 22, 2008

I am using a “borrowed” formula from a coworker that I do not really understand however it is working for me, sort of.

=+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V17,$W17,$X17,$Y17,$Z17,$AB17,$AC17,$AD17,$AO17,$AZ17)))),I F(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="FFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *")

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:

IF(V18="","",+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V18,$W18,$X18,$Y18,$Z18,$AB18,$AC18,$AD18,$AO18 ,$AZ18)))),IF(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="F FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *"))

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 Value = The Furthest Value To The Right

Sep 28, 2008

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.

Make Message Appear In Another Cell

Dec 8, 2012

When I click a cell (say A1) I want a specific message to appear in another cell (say B1); when I click A2, a different message should appear in B1 (basically B1 will be my display zone). The reasons I need it as such are that the sheet is a calendar and so putting all of the messages in would look ridiculous, and I really need a static position (B1) for the messages.
