Mandatory Cells And Filling In Next Row

Jul 21, 2014

I am creating an excel file for my company. This file contains 18 headers (from Columns A to R), all of which are mandatory to be completed.

This file is used by several other colleagues with the intention to update our records almost on a daily basis, and saved by them daily before being checked by me.

I would like to know if there is a macro to be used in order to prevent them from saving the file if all the fields are not completed. (ie. A5 to R5)

This function should only run right up to the next blank row.

Eventually, I would like the users to complete all cells from A5 to R5.

Should a single cell not be completed, an error message will pop-up.

When the next person accesses the file to enter their data underneath, it will again, not allow them to save until all the mandatory fields are filled out.

I have looked at another very similar link but it does not work and I do not know how to tweak it.

The example given is for when the data is in Column A.

The headers on my file are on Row 1 (Column A to R).

Mandatory Cells and knowing to fill in the next row!

Mandatory Cells

Jul 25, 2008

I have a worksheet which will be sent out of our organisation to a supplier for them to complete, save and return to me. I have a number of cells in the worksheet which I want to be mandatory. ie if no information is entered in the cell they will get a warning when they attempt to save the file down but will be unable to save it without filling in the cell. I was also going to colour the cells to identify them as mandatory. The cells are in random positions on the worksheet and different worksheets sent to different suppliers may have a differing number of coloured cells.

Is there a way to have one macro which finds the coloured cells (red), checks that there is an entry in each cell . If it is, allows a save. If it is not populated, displays a warning and stops them saving the worksheet until it is populated and is useable for all worksheets regardless of how many red cells are on the sheet and the position of them? If so how would it look?

Mandatory Fill For Cells In Excel?

Nov 25, 2013

My requirement is something like this. I have a workbook where end-users can fill data and send it to our system. They might enter any rows of data, it can be just 1 or even 100. I want to force users to fill in values in few mandatory fields : columns in B,C,D,E. Now I need a VBA code that should throw a message when it finds that the value in cells B,C,D,E are blank.

Since I am not sure how many rows of data the user can fill, I dont know how to code in VBA the above scenario. I cant give a range as the total rows of input data is not available and static value.

Mandatory Cells Based On Criteria

Dec 17, 2007

I need a macro that will check that the cells B1,C1,D1,E1 and one of the cells F1,G1,H1,I1 are filed out upon entry in A1.

If Not IsEmpty(.Range("A1")) Then
If WorksheetFunction. CountA(.Range("B1,C1,D1,E1")) <> 4 Then
MsgBox "All cells in row 1 are not filled out"
Application.Goto .Range("A1:I1")
Exit Sub

But how do I get it to also check that either F1 or G1 or H1 or I1 is also filled out. If possible I also would like it to beimpossible to add text in more then one of the cells F1:I1. Summary, upon entry in A1 I want cells B1:E1 plus one of the cells in F1:I1 to be mandatory, so in total there will be 5 mandaory cells.

Filling Cells According To Time

Jul 22, 2009

I'm working on some data dealing with time fields, and I need to have them counted in 15 minute intervals.

For example, one of the entries listed in a column has an event starting at 02:25:00 and ending at 02:55:00 (30 minutes). Along the top row are times listed in 15-minute intervals, e.g. 13:00:00, 13:15:00, 13:30:00, etc. In the corresponding cells, if the entry took place within a particular interval, I need it to say "1", otherwise have it say "0" or "-" or something denoting no event.

An IF statement was used, but it didn't seem to work.

If that's a little hard to follow, check the example attachment for a better idea of what I'm trying to describe.

In the example spreadsheet, Row 2 (manually typed in) is what I'm looking for. Row 3 is the (failed) attempt to use the IF statement.

Filling Cells According To A Calculation

Jun 29, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that is designed to aid a production department to complete and track their orders. I need two things from this.

1) I have an order of 500 baskets. Baskets are stacked, but the heights vary from 16 to 20. I need the spreadsheet to be able to work this out for me.
500 baskets 20 high = 25 stacks.
500 baskets 16 high = 31 stacks and 4 baskets.

Excel would work the last equation out as 31.25. How can I get excel to use the remainder (in this case 0.25) to work out the required number of baskets?

2) Using the above, I need the sheet to fill out a certain area with information. So, if the order is 500 baskets at 20 high, I need 25 of the cells in the specific area to display the number 20. Likewise, if the order is 500 baskets at 16 high, I need 31 cells to display 16 and the remaining cell to show 4.

Filling In Information In Blank Cells

Dec 18, 2008

I have a sheet that has been created with a pivott table, and as such has a lot of blank cells in the description column, and I want to do a little macro to fill all of these. Basically, what I was thinking, was that the macro finds the last cell with data in it in column A. Then it moves up one cell and checks if its empty. If it is empty, then it copies the information from the cell immediatly below then moves up one and does it all again. If it is not empty then it just moves up one cell and does it all again.

Filling In Blank Cells With Value From Another Cell

What I would like to do is to take the name values in column B and fill that into the region of blank cells below. I know that a special cells function could probably do this paired with a looping structure. I'm new to VBA and am trying to learn it so that I can use it comfortably.

Auto-Filling Cells Horizontally

Feb 14, 2012

I want to be able to fill with the formula not modified (e.g., I do not want to use INDIRECT, OFFSET, etc.)

In Cell P3, I have the function "=IF(ISBLANK(C25),"",C25)."

I need to fill the next cells (horizontally) so that this increments numerically,

i.e., in Cell Q3, the function should read "=IF(ISBLANK(C26),"",C26)."

Is this possible without manually typing, and without having to modify the actual functions?

I am trying to use the below code to fill a combobox with unique values. It works great except I can't figure out a way to replace BLOCK 1 with BLOCK 2. I want to use BLOCK 2 to populate mgNames so that only specific values are filled into mgNames. Currently BLOCK 1 just fills mgNames with an entire range without any conditions. how I can get BLOCK 2 to work in the way i'm intending it to?

I'm looking for a formula that when copied down in row D would automatically fill in what is in colum D above if columns A:C match.


If A25:C25=A1:C24 (for example A25:C25 = A8:C8) then D25 will automatically fill in the content of D8. Then next it would be A26:C26 match A1:A25 and so on.....

Filling Cells With Data From Userforms

I have a userform and on it is a combo box with the weeks in each month in it. A user has to select a week to enter figures for and then enter the figures into text boxes on the same form. When the click submit (command button), based on what week they've already selected, my code will put the figures into the spreadsheet in the appropriate place.

Sub december1()
If Figures1.TextBox1.Value >= "1" Then Range("c16") = Figures1.TextBox1.Value
If Figures1.TextBox2.Value >= "1" Then Range("c17") = Val(Figures1.TextBox2.Value) / 100#
If Figures1.TextBox3.Value >= "1" Then Range("c18") = Figures1.TextBox3.Value
If Figures1.TextBox4.Value >= "1" Then Range("c22") = Figures1.TextBox4.Value
If Figures1.TextBox5.Value >= "1" Then Range("c23") = Figures1.TextBox5.Value
If Figures1.TextBox6.Value >= "1" Then Range("c28") = Figures1.TextBox6.Value
If Figures1.TextBox7.Value >= "1" Then Range("c29") = Val(Figures1.TextBox7.Value) / 100#...........................

Certain Dropdown Items Filling Different Information Into Cells?

Oct 25, 2012

Wasn't sure what the easy way to do this is. I'm trying to have a drop down menu where choosing a certain item triggers specific information to fill multiple cells. For instance, choosing Work Contacts in a drop down menu brings up four different people's names in cells B43-46 and their phone number in C43-46 and email in D43-46. Choosing another item for instance, Personal Contacts, would reveal a different set of four names and information.

Automatic Filling Cells - Formula That Expands

Jun 3, 2014

I am currently streaming financial data into excel which updates on a minute by minute basis. Every minute a new row of data is automatically inputted based on market activity. Is there any formula/function which would expand to cover the new data as the amount of cells increases? Is there any way that I can have it so that the function/formula only looks at the last 20 or so cells, so its like a moving/rolling formula/function?

Data Validation And Auto Filling Cells

Sep 26, 2009

Starting to struggle a bit here. Trying to create a user form, with help from this website I was able to create 2 dropdown lists based on data validation and information from another sheet in the same workbook. I have one cell B7 that uses data validation and sheet "Eq List" to create a drop down list of departments that the user can select from. Once B7 is filled in, it creates the 2nd dropdown list in B9 so the user can pick "Equip Desc".

Where I am trying to fill B11 which should automatically give me back the Mach ID that is related to B7 & B9. Am I going about this the right way? I have ttached a sample file to make it easier to understand.

Filling Cells Based On Previous Row Information (text)

Mar 22, 2012

I have a column of data (Column T) which has about 10 different words in it (varieties of fruit). What I want to achieve is based on the data in column T I want to fill Column U with information, let me put it in an example.

Column T has the following words in 2000 rows. Thompson, Crimson, Sable, Superior, Midnight, Ralli.

If Cell T4 for example has 'Thompson' or 'Superior' I want cell U4 to say 'white', but if cell T4 has 'Crimson' or 'Ralli' I want it to say 'Red'. If it has Midnight I want it to say 'black'.

I think this can be done using a vlookup maybe? I don't have to go down 2000 rows to fill this information in.

Automatically Filling In Cells Based On Information From Another Sheet

Apr 1, 2013

I want to make things easier for myself when filling in my worksheets by having certain cells autofill based on a product number.

So I have my main worksheet and I have my product information sheet. When I type in the product number in cell 13C, I want it to auto fill cell 13B with the product name which is located in collumn A on the product info sheet, but dependent upon that product number. Collumn B in my product info sheet has all of the product numbers. From there I would need 13G on my main worksheet to fill in with Collumn D from the product sheet, but again dependent upon that product number.

There are more that need to fill yet, but I can figure out what to do once I have a starting point with the above I believe.

Macro Code Executes Very Slowly: Filling Some Cells On Different Worksheets

Nov 9, 2006

I have the following code attached to a userform. It works perfectly (for what I need) although I know it may not be perfectly written. However it does seem to take for ever to execute considering it's just filling some cells on different worksheets. Have I missed something out or got it tied up doing something that takes a long time. If it's just a fact of life that it takes this time then I can live with it.

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
Dim wsCB As Worksheet, wsLL As Worksheet, wsBond As Worksheet
Dim rngFound As Range
Set wsCB = Sheets("Current Bonds")
Set wsLL = Sheets("Landlords")
Set wsBond = Sheets("Bond")
TenancyStartTxt = Format(TenancyStartTxt, "dd-mmm-yy")
RnwlDteTx = Format(RnwlDteTx, "dd-mmm-yy")
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
10 MyBond = Application.InputBox("Bond number for renewal?", "Bond Number")
strFindMe = MyBond
With wsCB
Set rngData = .Range("c13:c490").......................
