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.
I would like the VBA code and use instruction, which will make any cell flash in a predetermined range of cells when certain conditions are met i.e. if cell value greater than 10 or less than 100 - usual condition formatting rules.
I'm working for monitoring report with macro , i have collected the details from database and displayed it second sheet of excel. i have put on conditions in macro like if particular cell value > 90 the cell will be display "Red" text and conditional formating will make background color as red. now i want to flash or blink the particular red colored cell continuously... if amber/green color it should not blink.
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.
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.
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 DoEvents Call Sleep(60)
I'm creating my task file in excel 2007. In this file there is column for task description, Intimation date, start date, Set completion date, completion date and remarks. I want in intimation date cell, cell contain the date which is 5 days before the start date and the cell/text(date) blink until the start date come. if the task completed in the defined completion date, "complete in time" is written automatically in remarks column, and if completion date is after the set completion date for the task "delay in completion" written automatically in remarks column.
Sr. No. Intimation date Task Description Start Date Set Completion Date Completion Date Remarks
when I am trying to open them. they are not opening. When opening excel with flash game, there is big black square box. When opening power point with flash game, it is giving error "Some controls on this presentation can't be activated. They might mot be registered on this computer"
Flash objects on by browser when surfing site are working perfectly fine. i have also re-installed fresh flash from adobe site, but no success.
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.
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?
Is it possible to access data from flash content using excel?
The data I am looking for can be found by navigating to this link: [URL] ..., selecting one of the live games by clicking on the names of the teams, then clicking on the statistics tab on the next page.
The data I'm looking to extract is the shots data, i.e. shots on target, shots off target and shots on woodwork, plus the current score.
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.
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.
I need to figure a way to make to cells with dates equal each other if the day,month and year are the same but are placed into a cell at different times during the day. "Making Date Now () = (06/29/09) In another cell". Therefore, A1= Now() and E11 = 06/29/09
Is there a way to create a multiple dropdown (Similar to Windows Start menu) so that the user can select the item and its properties then the selections be placed into multiple cells? For example, i select wood from drop down list and i get another drop down list asking for the type of wood, I select MDF and another drop down ask for thickness. when I finished my selections, then the selected Items copy themselves into 3 different cells.
I have a drop down in (A1) cell and I select an item from it. I want (A2) cell to check the name in (A1) then call up another drop down i already made in (A2).
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:
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.
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.
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.
I have an excel file where the user has to enter his user name and password. But the password that is entered into the cell should appear as Wildcards(*) to everyone (Like our Windows login). Is there any way to do it.
