Global Variable Or Pass Variable Between Sub-routines

Jan 26, 2007

The first goes through a directory and opens all the files.. after it opens a given file it goes off into a sub-routine to process the data in that file.

I am trying to create a counter in the first sub-routine and then pass that value into the second sub-routine to tell it to put the values out on the next row down.. so the first time through it puts the values out on row 1, next time it puts them out on row 2, etc.

Setting A Global Variable

May 27, 2008

If I want to set a global variable when I open my workbook which will be used in code on the individual spreadsheets, how would I do this? I want to set the time the workbook is opened to a variable (constant) and then compare that time to current time on each calculation in the worksheets.

I'm using Excel 2000.

Global Variable Declaration

Dec 25, 2007

I have a smattering of experience within various programming languages, but am still coming to terms with the basics of VBA. I am trying to declare a global variable, assign it a value, then use that global variable. Within 'ThisWorkbook' I have the following...

Public myText As String
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
myText = "Hi There"
End Sub

...and in the Microsoft Worksheet Object Sheet1 (Sheet1) I have...

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
MsgBox myText
End Sub

Now, my understanding of this code is that upon opening the workbook, myText variable will be declared, and then assigned the value "Hi There". Then, once I have clicked anywhere on Sheet1, a message box will appear stating "Hi There". Problem is, the message box is blank. This is all fine, except I want the message box to state "Hi There". What am I doing wrong? Is the variable declared (publically) correctly? Am I assigning the public variable the value correctly?
Am I referencing the public variable correctly in the Worksheet_SelectionChange procedure correctly?

A Variable Which Is Used By Several Subs In A Worksheet But Is Not Global?

Dec 7, 2008

I am working on a workbook which uses a large number of variables. I am trying to keep them as "local" as possible to keep it simple. Some of my variables are local to the subs they're used in. Some are global as they're used by subs in several sheets. A third type of variable is used by several subs all belonging to the same sheet. Is there a way of declaring them so they're known by all subs in that sheet, but not by every sub in the workbook?

Setting Global Variable From A UserForm

Jul 31, 2009

I have a UserForm that runs when my excel project starts that prompts the user for two pieces of data: a username and a password (these are not for logging into the file itself, I need to use them to call web queries later). I want the UserForm to store both of these data in global variables, so that macros that are run in the future can refer to them and read their values. Unfortunately, I am very new to VBA and I cannot figure out what code I need and where exactly I need to put it. Here is my current code, where "authentication" is the name of the UserForm object, and the textboxes I use for entry are named "user" and "pass": In "This Workbook"

How To Make Variable Range

Apr 29, 2013

I am trying to make a spreadsheet that will have a weekly schedule and will recognize and make some sort of message box or something when a person's name is used twice in the same range. For example, if Smith is in B2 and in B4 then message box. I'm not sure how to do this.

My thought was to make a variable range to check if anything in B2:B7 is equal to say, B3. But the range B2:B7 would have to exclude the cell that is compared, B3. Otherwise it is always true.

Macro - How To Make Variable

Aug 27, 2007

I have 2 worksheets - "Results" and "Historical". I am trying to record a macro that copies data from "Results" and then pastes into Historical. The data I want to copy will always be in "Results" A1:A10. When I want to update the macro (which will be weekly), I want it to copy A1:A10 and then paste into "Historical". Simple enough. Here is the problem:

Since this will be updated weekly, the first time I update I will want "Results" data copied into "Historical" A1:A10. The next time I update, I want the data copied into "Historical" B1:B10; then C1:C10, etc. Essentially I want the keep a running total of all of my prior data.

So I need the macro to be able to say something like - paste date into the first available column. If there is data in A1:A10, then paste into B, then C, D. How do I make the Macro variable?

How To Create Global UDF

Sep 18, 2013

I have written a code for a function in VB editor in a sample excel sheet. The UDF is working fine, but I am not able to use it in every other worksheet. I need to give the code to my managers, so even they can use the function conviniently just from the formula bar. I had declared the function as a Public function, so I thought it will be accessible in other excel sheets as well but that doesn't seem to work.

Global Word Substitutions

Dec 18, 2009

I am trying to match up two data sets that are composed of some not very clean data. Some of my match criteria is going to include text strings.

One data set often has abbreviations for words. Example:

Massachusetts General Hospital
Or St vs Street. Mt vs Mount.

The list of criteria of subs I want to do is quite extensive so it does not make sense to try and do this with embedded replace() and substitution() formulas.

Want I want to is to write some kind of case statement in VB where I can load a list of substituions into a worksheet with the word in the A column, and the sub in the B column.

A b
GENL General

And then the code would find these words and sub them out whenever they are present.

Ideas on how to get started? Maybe there is a function out there already written that I can use? I searched a bit, but I am not familar with all of the resources out there. I don't need someone to write this for me, but just maybe a best practice on how you would, or point me to examples of similar functions.
