Manual Or Automatic Calculation Option Using VBAMay 26, 2006
Is there a way of using VBA to check which calculation option is on - "automatic" or "manual" ?
Is there a way of using VBA to check which calculation option is on - "automatic" or "manual" ?
I know how to turn off automatic and manual calculation modes manually in excel or through VB. But is there a way to make the automatic calculation mode ignore changes in certian cells? It would be good if you could right click on a cell and turn this on/off as an option. I assume I will have to code this in vb somehow, but I am a novice. Something like:
For Cells = Value.Range("I7:R22")
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Like I basically want part of my sheet to be set to manual calculation mode, and partially to automatic...
I have in cell A2 a number, and my VBA is as follows;
If Target.Address(0, 0) = "A2" Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2).Value = Target.Value
Application.EnableEvents = True
This basically adds any new number typed into cell A2 into a list which starts in A3 then continues down through column A.
I also have another part of my VBA which says;
If Target.Column = 1 Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Cells(Target.Row, 2).Value = Date + Time
Application.EnableEvents = True
This part works fine and adds a date stamp to my blank cells in column B whenever I manually type anything into column A, however, when the first part of the VBA works the date stamp is updated into cell B2 and I want it to update next to the new entry that has just been added into column A by the first VBA doing its job.
I think I need to change;
To something that refers to a Range of cells (would be B3-B5000 for example) but my knowledge on how to change that part of the VBA has now ran out!!
Is it possible that the very same macro runs kind of incorrectly while it's being run as "automatic" (F5 key) and absolutely correctly while run manually, line by line via F8 key?
I am trying to debug the code but no luck as I get proper results while run manually.
I'm trying to turn calculation to manual, but there does not seem to be an Options button under tools on the mac I'm using. I've checked another mac and it is also missing. I'll probably end up using a pc for the calculations anyway, but I was wondering if anyone knew what was up?View 3 Replies View Related
Is there a way to make excel 2007 pop up a warning whenever calculation is set to manual by a macro or any other means? I have on several occasions noticed formulas not working, only to discover that calculation was set to manual without me noticing. And then I don't know how much of my work may have been afffected. This seems like a pretty vital piece of information, and I am surprised that it's not made more obvious.View 11 Replies View Related
I am trying to calculate the present value of a terminal period in Excel. The manual calculation and excel PV function are off by about $98,000. Both calculations are using the same capitalization rate and terminal life. My PV Excel formula is as follows: =PV(discount rate-growth rate,remaining term (years),-terminal cash flow,,0)*present value factor in last year of cash flow) What is causing the difference in values? Is there something in the Excel formula that is causing the difference?View 1 Replies View Related
how does excel determine if it opens a file in manual or automatic?
how can i choose that excel opens every file in calculation manual?
I am on a Mac running OS 10.4.11. Whenever I launch Excel 2008, I have to go to Preferences and set Calculation to automatic.
Then Excel calculates automatically until the next time I launch the program. Then I find it has defaulted back to manual.
I have a set of procedures that require auto recalc to be on to work correctly. I've tried application.volatile and Application.CalculateFull with no luck. I'm trying to put together code that makes sure recalc is on, but that first determines the current recalc status and then changes it back to Manual when necessary. I don't know how to determine the current status. The following code should work if the red sections are fixed.
Dim CurrentState As unknown
CurrentState = Application.Calculation status
Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic
If CurrentState = Manual Then
Application.Calculation = xlManual
Is there a way that I can set a single worksheet in a workbook to always be on manual calculation, but keep all other sheet in the workbook set to automatic?
I want to be able to open the workbook, any calculations to perform automatically and then i will select the 'manual' sheet and perform these calculations manually. I also need to these settings to always apply each time i open the workbook.
In as much as I would like to heed the advice of this site to avoid setting excel calculation to MANUAL, I think I have no choice this time. I have a file that uses a lot of SUMPRODUCT(--) and array formulas. DSUM would have been faster but this file I am working on will be sent to users who barely knows excel. When they need to insert rows, the DSUM criteria will have to be reestablished and I do not think they are capable of that. Anyway...when calculcation is set to manual, all excel does to warn users is the little test "Calculate" in the status bar. What I would have liked is that a red button with text "CLICK TO REFRESH" to appear when calculcation is needed i.e. status bars is showing "Calculate".View 2 Replies View Related
I want a specific workbook to be always on manual but when I open other workbooks I want them to remain on automatic even though the first workbook is set on manual through vba code. Is that possible to be done?
This is the code I run:
Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
.Calculation = xlManual
.MaxChange = 0.001
.CalculateBeforeSave = False
I know that Application. Calculation refers to all open workbooks but I don't know the code to specify the manual calculation to this workbook only while others are open.
I have this codes which will only trigger if I manually execute it. What do I need to do to trigger it automatically whenever the worksheet change.
Below is the codes:
Dim c As Range, myFontCol As Integer, myCol As Integer
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("f7:g20000")
myFontCol = xlAutomatic
myCol = xlNone
Select Case c.Value
Case Is = 1, 2, 3
myCol = 34
Case Is = 4, 5, 10, 20: myCol = 43
Case Is = 30, 40, 50: myCol = 6
Case Is = 70, 100, 140, 150
myCol = 5
myFontCol = 2
In attached file, I need to find a way for "y" to be automatically calculated. But for that, "y" needs to first find out which equation to use, depending upon the corresponding entry in first column.
would somebody know how to do it ?
I was trying vlookup, but couldn't.
When i have automatic calculation on, excel freezes. When i push the escape key i get focus back to excel but then it nearly immediatley loses focus again. I have to keep hitting excel to navigate anywhere with excel. By turning calculations to manual it no longer freezes. Is there a way to identify whats causing this freeze, I went through and deleted nearly all events? Why would auto calculate freeze excel if no changes are being made to a formula?View 1 Replies View Related
I have largish workbooks (10MB) with a variety of formulas and lookups to generate tables and charts. Calculation is ALWAYS set to Automatic, but sometimes (not always) the formulas fail to update when values are changed. Sometimes F9 will force calculation, sometimes Ctrl + Alt + F9, sometimes (especially with charts) I have to close the workbook and reopen before they will update. The workbooks contain macros but none are running when this happens. A search of your forum indicated that this question has arisen several times before, but I haven't seen a definitive answer.View 6 Replies View Related
I am working in a fairly large worksheet, and I realized that when I make changes to it, sometimes some of the cells do no recalculate. The only way I can get them to recalculate is by clicking into the cell, and then hitting return.
The issue is that I don't know which ones are failing to recalculate unless I click into each individual cell and hit return to see if it changes. This would be logistically impossible given the size of my sheet.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?
I have several data validation style drop down menus, and I basically don't want excel to recognize changes in these cells and execute a calculation of the entire workbook. Since there is a large number of calculations being performed in the workbook the sheet gets really slow.
Overall the way excel "automatically calculates" really screws me up a lot. This built in functionality could be a lot smarter in my opinion.
I need to average data following the format below by average per week by week/store combination e.g. wk 1/store A average is 6.
I can easily use SUMIFS to achieve this, but I have a large amount of data between the weeks of 1-52, a dozen different stores and I will be adding to this. I don't want to have to enter new SUMIFS every time I enter a new wk/store combination. How do I get this info to automatically calculate?
is it possible to choose an option button which will then perform a calculation on a cell reference? Iím trying to deduct a percentage from a total when an option button is highlighted.View 5 Replies View Related
I have this problem where the SUM function is returning 0. The context is this- I am simulating values using RAND() and looking up the values corersponding to probabilities from a different tables. I then use the TRIM function to return the value I need, and the final number is of a "general" format.
This is the formula in the column I wish to sum:
And this is dragged down the column.
When I change the cells using =VALUE(cell) the SUM function then returns the required value. Oddly the SUMPRODUCT function seems to work.
Calculation is set to automatic and the cell has been formatted as a number.
I have a table with rows that keep growing. But I have place formula in the whole of column F, i.e. F2:F66565. When I import information from MS Access into column A to E, the formula in F does not work, until I copy from F2 to the end manually. I have tried using Tools, Options, Calculation, Automatic. That doesn't work, I have also tried F9, that doesn't work and I have also tried checking Precision as Displayed under the calculation tax in Tools-Options, that doesn't work either.View 3 Replies View Related
I have workbooks in which summary tables are generated by lookup formulas. Tables are on different sheets but all use the same lookup value by referring to a cell on the 'master' sheet. The lookup value appears in cells on all sheets, by reference to the master sheet (e.g. [formula] = mastersheet!$B$2).
The master sheet contains the main summary table and is copied and detached for distribution, using a macro. For practical reasons, this is done in two stages, first copying the sheet within the workbook (to make minor alterations), then moving it to a new book to save and distribute.
This is where the problem arises. After the sheet has been detached, we find that if we now change the lookup value on the master sheet in the original file, the tables on that sheet will update normally, but the cells on other sheets remain frozen at the previous value and the tables on those sheets do not update.
The only way round the problem is by Shift + Ctrl + Alt + F9. (Maybe I should add that all my workbooks are always set to automatic calculation.)
The macro itself is not the cause of the problem; if we follow the same procedure manually, the result is the same. However, if we move the sheet in one step, eliminating the intermediate copying stage, the problem does not arise. But this is evading the problem, not solving it, and I would be reluctant to have to resort to this.
The original problem remains as stated, viz. failure of automatic calculation.
which will calculate value of a cell when one of the variables has been changed?
To illustrate what I have in mind, an ecxample:
* User can add values to cells using UserForm
- Component name (to Cell "A1")
- Component price (to Cell "B1")
- Component quantity (to Cell "C1")
I have several option groups (Y & N in each) linked to cells to display TRUE / FALSE depending on which option is selected in each group. I have another cell which I want to apply conditional formatting to if EITHER Y or N is selected in all groups. At present I use COUNTIF to check for FALSE=0 in the linked cells which works if all the answers are Y. How do I apply CF if there is a mixture of Y & N (TRUE / FALSE) in all groups (I'm not sure if I've explained that well or not).

I have a macro that transfer data from one sheet to another (I have sheets called Form and Sent). Basically, the users enters data in the Form Sheet. After they're done, the data gets transferred to the Sent Sheet. I don't want users to be able to modify the data in the Sent sheet. I just want them to see the records. Also, i want the sheet protected from having users manually inputting datas. I can't accomplish this when I protect the sheet, since it is giving me an error while running the macro to transfer data. Is there a workaround?View 9 Replies View Related
I have what I'd thought would be a simple problem, but I haven't yet been able to track down an answer. I am trying to manually rank a list (column) of players' names. What I'd like to be accomplish is something to the effect of being able to enter a value for a single player, then have the cells resort themselves AND update the list.
RANK PLAYER NAME
I'd like to be able to manually change A5, for example, to 2 and then have the list update itself to read:
RANK PLAYER NAME
I've toyed with macros that took care of the sorting piece but I'm still left with duplicate numbers (ranks) that I must then manually change and/or fill down. There are over 500 entries (rows) so this can become a bit tiresome.
This is probably a really stupid question, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. I need to do some very basic filtering, but the dropdown box where you check off the things that you want to filter by is not defaulting to show checkboxes. This didn't seem like a big deal at first, but it's made it impossible to filter all but one things. For instance, to filter everything but values that are 0, I would have to manually click every single value in the dropdown box. Clicking "select all" is doing literally nothing. It's this way for all my excel documents. how to get the boxes back? I've included a screenshot of what comes up whenever I click on the manual filter button to show what is coming up.
I have an action that deletes a row, and decrements rows counter by one. But, if the user manually deletes one row, I don't get that information (decrementation). Workbook pretection is out of the option.
What are my choices?
I was thinking, is it possible to capture a delete event in general, and add some code to it? Or maybe even completely disable it?
I am thinking that I must have something set up wrong some place, but have not done anything that should have changed my formulas
Its not that they are gone but just are not auto calculating.
I tried just a basic sample invoice and the figures do not calculate without manual calclation
I have a pivot table and if i select my headers i have the availability to sort a-z and z-a plus manual ...manual says to drag the item where i would like it... I have tried the excel database..they reference manual sort but really give no explanation.
Scenario.. I want to sort a-z.. then manual sort a few items to the top of the list..
I always use manual calculation with Excel, does it affect the calculation within a Macro when I run it?View 9 Replies View Related
Is there any way of opening a workbook via VBA that will set the calculation to xlCalculationManual BEFORE the workbook calculates anything on opening.
The purpose: I'm opening the workbook remotely from an Access document and there are quite a few formulas in the workbook that take a few seconds to calculate. I have a modeless UserForm that displays from the Workbook_Open event which I want to get displayed before all the calculations take place so the user has something pretty to look at while he/she is waiting. But it seems that the workbook performs a calculation before running the Open event code.
I would like to use a combobox and I want to force the user to selected one item from the list, and not to be able to type anything in it.
My other solution would be to use a listbox but I like the combobox design better...
I found this code in a MSDN Forum but somehow, it does not seem to work.
Maybe it is because I do not know what to do with a "public class", or my Excel 97 does not support this.
I tried pasting the "private sub" in a sheet code (where my combobox is), but it did not work.
Public Class Form1
Private Sub ComboBox1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) _
e.Handled = True
Is this code actually working under excel 97 and if so, where do I have to put it?
My pivot table is not auto summing each column properly, and I can't manually enter a formula to do so. I tried adjusting the settings of the rows and columns through the pivot table wizard, but no luck. Is there a way around this limitation?View 6 Replies View Related
I have received from reading previous posts in this forum. Now I have a problem that I have struggled with for weeks. Ref: Excel 2000. I create (Purchase Order) Workbooks with 50 (POs) Worksheets, and 1 summary (Index) worksheet. The Index worksheet has hyperlinks to each PO (created via VBA), and works as expected.
Subsequently, each worksheet has a hyperlink back to the Index worksheet also created from VBA
Sheets(Counter + 2). Cells(2, 2).Select
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Sheets(Counter + 2).Cells(2, 2), _
Address:="", SubAddress:=Sheets(PONumber & " THRU " & PONumber + 49) _
.Cells(Counter + 3, 1).Address
Before the hyperlink in each worksheet will work I must (with the cell containing the hyperlink selected) either right-click|Hyperlink|Edit Hyperlink then press "Enter", or pres Ctrl-K (which brings up the edit dialog) and then press "Enter." If I don't manually edit each hyperlink on each worksheet these hyperlinks select the targeted cell on the same worksheet as the selected cell, not the targeted cell on the Index worksheet. Note, when I manually edit each hyperlink I am not actually making any changes to the hyperlink (thought something is obviously happening that I am unaware of), I am only accessing the edit dialog box.
I work for a farm where we receive fresh produce from harvesters daily. I created a workbook with worksheets(ws) for my daily inventory counts according to product type and separate worksheets for each day of the week showing the orders shipping for that particular day.
I collaborated the data from the inventory count ws and the ws for each day into one ws called Harvest. I am trying to figure out how to keep a running total of what needs to be harvested vs. what is in inventory so that I can show my harvesters what new product is needed to fill orders for today forward, after subtracting what is available in inventory, and showing the amount shipped for past days . Another part that's throwing me is that harvest brings in new product daily and sometimes they bring in a surplus.
Here is an example:
Lets say today is Tuesday and my Inventory ws shows we have 50 kale in inventory - cell D10
Monday ws shows an order for 50 kale, cell D14
Tuesday ws shows an order for 100 kale, cell D14
Wednesday ws shows an order for 100 kale, cell D14
Thursday ws shows an order for 100 kale, cell D14
On my Harvest ws, Since today is Tuesday, how would I keep the Monday cell showing 50 kale as the amount shipped on Monday, Tuesday cell showing we need 50 kale to be harvested to add to the 50 in inventory and fill the order of 100, Wednesday cell showing that we need 100 kale harvested, and Thursday showing that we need 100 kale harvested?
If Harvest brings in a surplus of 100 kale on Tuesday so we have 100 kale in inventory on Wednesday how do I get the Harvest ws to now show that Monday cell should still show 50 kale shipped, Tuesday cell should show 100 kale shipped, Wednesday cell should show that we don't need any kale harvested since we are using the 100 surplus in inventory, Thursday cell should show we need 100 kale harvested.
I am relatively new to Excel. I have figured out how to use named ranges as lists and use INDIRECT Data Validation to have a list's selection made in one cell populate a new list in an adjacent cell.
A1 contains a list of "Characters" (The choices are "Numbers", "Letters", or "Other")
Based on the choice in A1, B1 has to populate with the following:
- A list of available Numbers to chose from (1,2,3..etc)
- A list of available Letters to chose from ( A,B,C...etc)
- Text that instructs the user to enter text into the cell manually
(For example, their "Other" character might be something like "@#$%^&*!". (Not unlike my mental state trying to figure out this problem.) I want them to see the instruction to "ENTER CHARACTERS HERE" and then be able to type in the cell.
So I need B1 to either populate with a menu that is dependent on the menu selection in A1, or allow for free text entry depending on if they chose the "other" option in A1.
