Making A Macro Shorter & Dynamic

Sep 1, 2007

I have the following code as part of my macro. What I was wondering is a) Can anyone think of a way to shorten this? and b) I currently have this exact code copied 8 times, I did a find and replace to change 'if year = 2003 then' to the year 2010. What I would like is to have 1 code that will automatically change depending on the year the user inputs in a cell. (I should mention that 'Year' is a cell on my input sheet where the user types in the year they are currently working on and the macro automatically runs)

Sheets("Cash Crops").Select
If Year = 2003 Then
' This copies the cash crop BPU's.
Workbooks.Open Filename:="F:xdataCAISCAIS spreadsheetsBPU's.xls"
Application.Goto reference:="Cash03"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=21
Application.Goto reference:="CashCrops"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-30
Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True..............

Shorter Macro To Move All Lines Based On Cell Value

Jun 9, 2014

Basically I want to copy and paste all data in a row if the value in a cell is equal to something

I am currently using the below formula

The Value in red = Set tgt = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(Criterion.Offset(, 1).Value 'Pick the cell next to the cell containing the criterion).

But my issue is now that i will need this to work based on 37 values and having this macro 37 times with the value changed and 37 buttons will be difficult.

So I am looking for a way i can add multiple values each going to separate sheets.

Making HLookup Formula Dynamic?

Jun 20, 2014

I'm currently using an HLookup formula to create an output tab for a huge set of input data, but whenever I add new rows to the input tab, I have to adjust the formulas for each individual output cell.

For example, my output formula is currently "=HLOOKUP(B$4,'Inputs'!$B$2:$BJ$384,116,FALSE)," but if I add a new row to the input data, I have to adjust the table array and the row number for the formula. So, if I added a row before the 116th row, but wanted the output to be the same for this cell, I would have to update the formula to "=HLOOKUP(B$4,'Inputs'!$B$2:$BJ$385,117,FALSE).

Is there any way to adjust this formula so that it will automatically update to produce the same output without manually updating the formula each time I edit the number of input rows? Would an index/match formula work, and if so, what would it look like?

Making Dynamic Data Static

Aug 7, 2014

I want to take some data which is dynamic and make it static elsewhere in a workbook without doing a manual copy of the said data. Is this even possible?

For example, let's say Sheet1!A1 is the dynamic data I am using, and on Sheet2!A1 I want to replicate this data, I know I can just reference Sheet1!A1. However, this would make Sheet2!A1 dynamic, and I want it to be static. I know I can do this be just typing it in manually but I have a lot of data I would need to do this for, is there some way of making Sheet2!A2 static whilst still referencing Sheet1!A1?

Making Chart Series Dynamic?

Jun 6, 2012

I am looking for a quick way to create a number charts using data from multiple sheets.

I have 12 sheets Apr - Mar that contain data in identical format. I also have sheets 12 sheets Apr Charts - Mar Charts, I need to create a number of charts on each sheet for the relevant month. To avoid having to create a ridiculous number of charts, I thought I would try to dynamically change the chart data series based on a value in say cell A1.

For example if cell A1 of the Apr Charts sheet = Apr, the chart will show the data for Apr.

The idea is that I can copy the Apr Charts sheet the required number of times and replace the value in A1, and my charts will update dynamically. I need to have seperate sheets for each of the monthly charts.

Excel 2010 :: Making Hard Coded Cell Dynamic While Maintaining Original Content

May 16, 2014

I pulled a set of financial statements from a database into Excel. All of the values are hard coded but I would like to make them dynamic, while maintaining the original content. For example, If cell C3 is a revenue figure for 2012 ($1,000) I would like to link it to cell C5, which will be a currency conversion rate (2.0). So I would like cell C3 to read =1000*C5, which would equal 2000, and for cell D3 to equal 2013 sales*D5, etc. I would also like this to go across a specified range so that I can also change operating expenses, taxes, etc over a number of columns (dates) that I define, all linking to the conversion rate for the given year. Having another tab where you link and anchor is an option but I would prefer something in VBA where I can qickly include this functionality with new workbooks that I download.

I am using Excel 2010.

Finding Unique Values And Creating Shorter Table (sublist) Using Formula

Apr 25, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with some calculations and the part i am interested in is data in R4 : V58

In this R4:R58, S4:S58 and T4:T58 have some rows that have False because of IF calculations that put False in some rows of R and hence in S and Hence in T.

For example, R15="FALSE" so will S15 and T15 be. Col U is based on whether the corresponding row in R is False or a number. If a Rown in R is false, the row in U= 0 else the row in U is the same as in the same row of a different column - Col I

Col R, T and U are numbers. Col S is text

For example:"
False False False 0
False False False 0
False False False 0
55 DEF 3 15
46 XYZ 2 67
False False False 0
False False False 0
23 GEF 4 43

I want a table in another worksheet that will sort through this using a formula and print

Col1 Col2 Col3 Col4
55 DEF 3 15
46 XYZ 2 67
23 GEF 4 43

If I can define things like where the table will be placed in the new worksheet etc, that will be a bonus..But It appears I cannot understand how to do this at all..

Making A Macro Run From A Button In Different Tab.

Jan 5, 2010

I have an excel spreadsheet with two tabs.One called "menu" and one called "website"
I want to put a button in tab one (menu) and assign a macro. I need the macro to run/output in sheet 2 (website) not in sheet 1 where the button is placed.

No matter what I do I can't figure it out. The macro always runs in the same sheet as the button.

Making This Macro Non Case-sensitive

Dec 17, 2007

in making this macro non case-sensitive. So when a user searches a company name in the worksheet they do not require to type in the company name exactly as it appears.

For example; when searching Microsoft they can type "microsoft" and the macro would take the user to Microsoft.

I would also like to know if it is possible to add a feature that keeps the search dialogue open so the user can search the next possible match. If the user was to type in "mirco" and the search would show the user any company name with the word micro in it.

Making / Defining Workbook As Variable In VBA Macro?

May 7, 2014

In my VBA macro, it copies data from this.workbook, and paste to another "destination" workbook. That destination workbook must be opened first before the macro is run.

Within the Macro code, I had to specify the exact name of the workbook which the data is pasted to.

The problem is that the exact name of that workbook which it paste to changes every week.

Is there any method where my macro can be changed and updated with the name of the destination workbook each week without manually opening and editing the code. The user of this.workbook is not technical enough to edit and maintain the macro each week

File / Workbook Created By Macro Is Making It Heavier?

Jul 4, 2014

I am creating 4 Sheets from a Main Sheet by Filtering Data based on different values in a fixed column, then the Filtered Rows are automatically pasted in the respective sheets.
Then these 4 Sheets are creating another file.

The same thing done manually by Grouping the 4 SHeets and then Move Copy into a New workbook also makes the file heavier.

Everything works fine however though the data is not much the file is very heavy, so what do i do to make it of appropriate size ?

Macro - Making Extensive Action Items Log For Work

Apr 11, 2012

I am trying to make an extensive action items log for work.

On Sheet 1, rows 1-3 are blank. Row 4 contains column headers.

Column A: Item #
Column B: Description
Column C: Drawing #
Column D: Conforming
Column E: Nonconforming
Columns F, G, H don't really matter

What I am wanting is to be able to put an "x" or check mark in either column D or E (conforming or nonconforming). Then I want to run a macro with a push button (I know how to make these) that when pushed scans the spreadsheet row by row until it finds the "x" or check in Column E. I want it to copy every instance of this and send it to an Action Item Page that I have temporarily called Sheet 2. (This way I can go here to see all nonconforming issues). I do not want it to remove the information from Sheet 1.

Then, I want to be able to change the "x" or check on the Action Item Page to Column D (back to conforming) and the macro (push button preferably) copy and send that information back to the original spreadsheet in the SAME row it was.

So, in short I want this to be a fluid way of checking off a punchlist of items.

To complicate things even further, if possible, I would like to have several worksheets send information to the one Action Item List rather than just the one.

Filter An Array (the Longer One) Using The Shorter Array As The Criteria

Aug 26, 2009

I am trying to filter an array (the longer one) using the shorter array as the criteria. I am currently doing this using the following method

IF(LOOKUP(lookup cell, array)=lookupcell, lookupcell, "FALSE")

I then copy and paste 'values' and filter out the 'false' to get my final result.

This has worked in the past, but for some reason that I simply can't figure out, the formula isnt working! I've attached the example, and I've highlighted a number in blue (cell E522 and C103), (that should be being found in the 'LOOKUP' function) but is returning a "FALSE". I have looked over the code and simply can't figure out why Excel isn't returning the right value.

This is obviously happening for a quite a few of my numbers, as my filter result is returning an array that is about 1500 shorter than it should be. I have highlighted E522 as the 'example cell' to look at.

Filtering A LONG List To Entries In A Shorter List

Nov 10, 2008

I have a list of email aliases for my company, approx 10,000 entries, mapping the alias to an email address. Two columns, one the alias firstname.surname, second column being the full email address. I have a second list, a subset of these aliases, approx 1200 of them, that are users of a particular web app. All i have in this list though, is the firstname.surname bit.

What I need to do is compare the lists, and where the aliases match I need to pull out the corresponding full email address from the long list, so I have 1200 aliases in the shorter list, with the full email address mapped to it. Is this possible in excel? i've tried all sorts of LOOKUP functions, and MATCH functions, but none seem to work. MATCH will give me the corresponding row number in the long list, but then it seems to offset itself every row it goes down, so the values are 1 out for every row. First row is good, second row -1, third row -3, fourth row -4 etc.

I don't want to have to manually go through 1200 entries and match them against a 10,000-entry list. Hopefully there's a quick way in excel to filter the long list down to the entries specified in the short list?

Making Macro That Will Create New Folders And Then Save In Those Folders?

May 21, 2014

I am attempting to create a macro that will create a new folder on the network drive Arie:quotes that will create the new folder and save the the file in the new folder. I need the name of the file and folder to be set to the master (worksheet) cell "B3". and then if possible have it be conditional that if cell "B40" on the same master (worksheet) has a value to have the value added at the end of the filename via hyphen. This workbook has numerous worksheets in it approx 15 worksheets. I am not sure if this is relevant.

As an brief example.

Cell "B3" on the master(worksheet) contains a job name I-40 bridge
So initially I would like the Folder name and file name to be I-40 Bridge

However once the Cell "B40" has been filled in with the value 54213 then I would like the file to renamed to I-40 Bridge-54213 and saved within the same folder.

I am currently working with Excel 2007 Pro edition on windows 8. I

I have found several other macro's that work with an auto save but i am unsure of how to change the directory to the network drive and show the correct file paths. This is the example of the macro I am currently working with.

Public Sub SaveAsA1()
ThisFile = Range("B3").ValueMkDir "C:NewFolder"ChDir "C:NewFolder"ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisFileEnd Sub

Dynamic Database Macro

Jun 21, 2006

By adapting a worksheet macro obtained previously via Ozgrid, I built a workbook that dynamically produces a database, in a worksheet titled “NumLtrWBS DB”, based on all possible combinations of what is listed in column A of three 3 worksheets titled: “ Num”, “Ltr” and “WBS, respectively. The macro, named “NumLtrWBS", works wonderfully, until I add a row at the top of each list to contain a column header. The unchanged macro includes the column headers in the “produced” database. When I change the macro by altering the variable definitions to begin at A2 rather than A1, it still includes the column headers in the “produced” database. How should I change the macro so it doesn’t “produce” the column headers in the database worksheet?

Macro - Dynamic Fill-Down To Last Row

Jul 1, 2006

I've recorded a macro where I have selected two adjoining cells in Row-9. I double-clicked at the cells to fill-down the formulas to the end of the range. However, the macro recorded: Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("H9:I152")

Of course, I will be adding and deleting rows from this worksheet. The next time I run the macro my range may only be to row 80 or it may be up to 200. How can I make the macro dynamic, so the AutoFill goes from H9 to "the end of the range"?

Dynamic Range In Macro

May 28, 2007

I am attempting to create a dynamic range within a macro.

Each week, a list of performance factors is recorded for employees. The macro is about to do an Advanced Filter to create reports based on user-provided criteria. Since there is new data every week, the range used for the Advanced Filter is dynamic. The code for the Advanced Filter refers to a range entitled “Database.” My problem is in defining “Database.”

It is currently 534 rows and 8 columns, starting at A1.

The relevant portion of the macro currently reads:

Sub Check1()

ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="Database", RefersToR1C1:= _
"=OFFSET('Loan Officer History'!$A$1,0,0, COUNTA('Loan Officer History'!$A:$A),8)"

Range(Database).AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CriteriaRange:=Range( _
"J1:Q2"), CopyToRange:=Range("J5:Q5"), Unique:=False

End Sub

When running the macro, the debugger stops at the line which starts "ActiveWorkbook.Names" and tells me “Run-time error ‘1004’. The formula you typed contains an error.”

Macro For Dynamic Sheet Name Reference?

Jun 23, 2012

I've got the following code:

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

I'd like the "WildCard" to pull from a value in a cell whereby I can run a button macro that, when pushed, deletes the tab/worksheet named "WildCard". For instance, if I wanted to delete "Sheet3" I would type "Sheet3" into, say, cell C3 and then press the button to run the macro and "Sheet3" would be deleted. How to I refer the macro to cell C3? I currently have a macro that inserts/names a sheet based upon a cell reference and macro button. I'd like one that can delete in the same way.

Macro For Dynamic Pivot Table

Jun 23, 2014

I am trying to make a dynamic pivot table using VBA. Unfortunately, Im not very good.I have a set of data with variable number of rows and variable number of columns and I need to make a pivot table. Need to select this data from sheet - Master, where the first data entry starts in cell A1. of the data in the sheet, i only need the name and age title In the pivot table fields -

ROWS needs to contain - name
COLUMN needs to contain - Age
Values need to contain - count of Age

After this is done, since the data will be dynamic, the pivot table will also be dynamic. i need to copy the pivot table data and paste it in another sheet so that I can do some filtering. The filtering part I think i can do my self.
