I recently upgraded to Excel 2007. I use Excel with "Allow editing directly in cells" unchecked. In previous versions, pressing F2 would not prevent me from using the mouse scroll, but in Excel 2007 I am unable to mouse scroll which makes it bothersome. Is there a setting somewhere that can enable mouse scroll after pressing F2?
I have seen some code around that allows scrolling in listboxes using the mousewheel. I have also seen some code here on the forums about scrolling through a combobox embedded in a workbook. I have tried adapting both of these to suit a combobox on a userform but I cannot get either to work.
Here is the code that I used for the embedded combobox; I added it to the base code for the userform
I then added the following code to a standard module as stated in the forum post;
In the first section of the code there is a msgbox that never gets shown so I don't think code is recognizing the mouse wheel at all.
The second set of code that I used was set up to work with a listbox and it works perfectly with a listbox control. The problem is I cannot adapt it to suit a combobox and if I use a breakpoint to see what is happening Excel freezes. The following code is added to the userforms code;
Then in a standard module I added the following code;
I added this section of the code;
I think this should only work on a Combobox but a Combobox does not appear to support the TopIndex value. Is there a way this can be setup to work with a userform combobox? Sorry about the huge amount of code.
I am having problems with an Excel workbook I am working on. I have a sheet that has a number of controls added to the top of it. Two of these controls are listboxes. My problem is, if I am in the listbox navigating through it, and I accidently move the Mouse Wheel, Excel crashes and I get the usual, "Send Error Report" form.
I have seen that there are other people having this problem and that there are a number of solutions out there but my problem is a bit different. I have a few forms with listboxes on them, and while mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work, it certainly doesn't crash Excel. It only seems to happen when I have a control permanently added to the sheet. Is there any event handler for mouse wheel scrolls or anyway to disable them through VB?
I'm trying to do a few things actually. I am somewhat a newb at programming, although I do understand how C++ and the coding works within Excel. To me, it's like the English language...knowing all of the vocabulary and formatting it right is important. If I don't know the vocabulary, I don't know what options I have.
This tool is being used in the call center I work in. It is to help eliminate repititious information used to notate accounts. I have attached a picture of what the tool looks like so you can have a better idea of what I'm working with. Here are a list of things I'm trying to do which I have searched and not found answers to:
1. I am trying to use a middle mouse scroll to scroll through validation list. This list information is located on a different locked tab. Basically, I have a few rows where a drop down selection can be made and it would be easier to scroll rather than manually moving the slider within the validation list.
2. As you can see, this "tool" an employee and I have created has many buttons. What I would like to do is to be able to click a button on the right and have it "stack" text within a single cell. In other words, if I click the button once, the text may be entered into the "actions taken" cell. If I click another button, I can have the option (or maybe a little "+" next to the button) to add this button's information to the end of the information already entered within the "actions taken" box. I've tried recording and using the keyboard and selecting "end" and then having the text added, but it didn't work. I've seen "loop" VBA code, but I don't want something to repeat, I want it to stack in the cell when clicked manually.
I'm sure there is a way to make the tool much better using VBA code and not use Excel, but I don't have an extensive knowledge of Excel to do something like that. I'm a very fast learner and understand how the coding works, so if you have an idea which may help, and you understand what I'm trying to do here, please provide your .02.
Basically, it's used so the Customer's name and phone number are entered manually, and then just about everything else is automated by the use of the buttons on the right. If I could get the 2 above options to work, it'd be perfect. I just figured out I could eliminate screen flicker and hide the macros working by using:
I'm using Excel 2007. When I try to scroll with the mouse wheel, it doesn't do anything. If I hold down the control key and scroll with the mouse, it zooms in and out. So that works fine, but I can't do the basic scrolling up and down the document with the mouse wheel. There is no "Tools, Options" menu in 2007 so I don't even know where to find this type of option. The options available from the Office button are completely different.
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
I have a worksheet that serves as a navigation page for the workbook and use the following code to restrict from scrolling off the viewable content. The problem is that the code doesn't kick in until either a click if the mouse or keyboard input. This initially leaves the worksheet open for scrolling until input is received.
How do I make this code activate when the wb is loaded? Code in the Thisworkbook module already makes the menu the visible sheet, and code limiting the scroll area is in the sheet module.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) With ActiveSheet .ScrollArea = "A1:L11" End With Range("A1").Activate End Sub
I've also tried using "Range("A1").Select", but it doesn't work either. How can I get this to work correctly?
I am using the toolbox/ properties method to restrict the scroll area in the sheets of my workbook. However, for some sheets when i keep the right hand arrow pressed, the screen will not scroll to the last column. (i.e. the screen display will not move with the selected cell box)
In the menu via TOOLS-->OPTIONS-->VIEW I am trying to remove the scroll bars from just one worksheet but when unticked, this option affects all of the worksheets in my workbook. Is there a way to just nail this selection down to one sheet via properties?
how to record a value of a cell whenever F9 is pressed. The cell I want to record the value of is cell D101, which is a sum function of the previous 100 rows. I'd like to figure out a way to run 1,000 trials or so and record the value in cell D101 each time.
Some more details, if needed: I'm simulating a dice game (craps). There are 2 dice, each dice is based off of RANDBETWEEN (1,6) then the dice are added in a different column to achieve the roll. The payout is then based on whatever number was rolled. I'm summing the payout (D101) and would like to run this trial 1,000 times.
I have a formulas in Sheet1 linked to other sheets, but I have only formula and there are no sheets ( eg: in sheet 1 A1 =Data!A1) where as there is no sheet called Data. I have a macro to import this sheets from a different file.
The problem I am facing is, after importing the sheets, the formula still shows #REF but if I do double click the cell or press F2 and then "Enter" the value appears. I have about 1200 formulas in this sheets.
Is it possible to launch Excel at a specified time without someone pressing a button?
I'm working on a network which has disabled Scheduled Tasks. The purpose of this request is to launch Excel in the early hours of the day so that a macro would run and update the data from a data source. The macro works brilliantly, but I without anyone in the office at 2am to open Excel, I need to find a way to launch it automatically.
Also, I don't have permissions to install programs or add-ins from the Internet. It doesn't leave me with many options, but I'm just wondering if there's a trick that has so far eluded me.
I have set the default in Excel to move across to the next cell after I press Enter. This is fine for most workbooks but I have a particular workbook in which it would be preferable (save keystrokes) for the cursor to move down one cell. Is it possible to have one action as the default but another for a particular workbook?
I have the following code to add dash mark to TextBox1 value depending on some condtions (mentioned in the code), the code works perfectly, but when we use Backspace Key to clear some charactors it is conflicting with the code running when changing Textbox1 value.
The name of the data entry sheet is 'Enter Data Here', and my employees will be filling in information in columns A to U.
I want to be able to accomplish 2 things.
1) When an employee opens the file, he/she is not able to edit any non-blank cells in columns A to U. 2) Employee is able to add data to a new row in columns A to U, and is able to edit this until they press 'SAVE'
I have a button in a template file, that when clicked, saves the file as a new file with file name based on data in certain cells.
I want to disable the ability to save the file with the Save icon or Ctrl-S, but the button still needs to be able to save it (the button is technically doing a Save As, so no problem there). But, I, as the administrator of the template, need to somehow be able to save updates to the template file. Can this be accomplished by coding Save to work when used with a secret key combination that only I know (I can put it in password-protected VB code)?
Then, as if that's not tricky enough, the trickier part is that once the file is saved as the new file (no longer the template) - re-enable the Save button and Ctrl-S so the user can then save it as many times as they want.
I know I can use Filter and filter out characters like &'!/; but that takes too long because I have a lot of lists to go through with thousands of entries. There must be a macro that will close spaces between words when only one space exists, but eliminate every word if 2 or more spaces exist between words - as well as eliminate unwanted characters like the ones I described above. I know I could use substitute and eliminate the spaces between words =substitute(a1," ","") but then I'd have to filter each and every instance of unwanted character.
I have a file with data in one sheet (unfortunately I cannot share the file because of confidential data..), and two sheets with both 9-11 charts in them.
The charts are all filled simply with a dynamic range from the datasheet, so that Last Year and all months from this year with data in them are always in there.
The problem: When opening either of the graph sheets, the (familiar?) error pops up: "A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references. Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name and cell reference."
One of the graphs has an error and only shows one point of data in it. But only until I press F9, and then the chart is repaired and functions perfectly like all the others!
I have tried lots of things, including checking all source ranges, deleting all graph names etc. and then repaired it so it would work again. The only thing that happened, is that the same error now pops up for another graph in the sheet. Still, when you press F9, the graph functions again!
Can I make the cursor use only 2 columns? In other words, I know that when I scan barcode data into A1, I have the cursor automatically move to B1. BUT, once I've scanned data into B1, how do I make the cursor automatically move to A2?
Is it possible to lock the computer using VBA. i.e Simulate pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then clicking Lock Computer so once this has been clicked the user will have to enter the password to unlock. I thought that using the SendKeys would be a start but this does nothing.
I have developed a Userform button in Excel 2010 using the developer icons, which when clicked on with my mouse it runs my super dooper macro. It works great!
But one thing I want to have happen is to have the choice of using the Enter key to start the macro or use the left mouse button
For example, I place data in (say) cell A1 and the userform button is in cell A2. When I place the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves down to A2, but doesn't highlight the user button. When I press the Enter key again, the cursor moves to cell A3.
What I want is when I fill in the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves to cell A2 and selects the button, so that when I press the Enter key again, it activates the macro.
