I have a userform that contains textbox's that are linked to excel cells and i was wondering if there is a way to format the textbox to show the values in the number format. As the cells values are constantly changing the following code only works if the number is in the hundred of billions but if the number changed to 10,000 for example the format would not adapt.
Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
Me.TextBox5 = Format$(CStr(ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ISN").Range("H1").Value) * Val(TextBox1.Text), "###,###,###,###")
I've done lots of looking on the forum, and the helpfiles, but just cant seem to format my text box properly! Its a form where the user inputs to the text box. I want to control thatway where they enter numbers e.g 05052008 and it gets converted to 05/05/2008 or 05-05-2008. I've tried a range of things, but am really stumped!
I have uploaded a copy of the spreadsheet I am working on and have completed the user forms and coding for march the 1st only, so if you test, please use the options march and then the 1st!
The problems i have is, when I enter a number into a text box and press next page, the numbers fill where i want them to but the cells do not recognise them as numbers, therefore conditional formatting doesnt work! Even if I change the cell properties to numbers, this does not remove the error!
Second problem!! If a user forgetts to enter a value in a box, or they wish to edit just one value, and go back into the user form to change a figure, when they press next page, all the values in the column seem to disappear!
On the attached example i have a user form (click Add New Hedge button) and on this form is a textbox for 'Avg. Price'. The value of entered from this box will go into the next available row in column on 'Unsettled Hedges' worksheet.
My problem is sometimes i would to enter the price as a fraction, e.g. 1/2 and other i would like to enter the price as a decimal, e.g. 1.5. At the moment if i enter the price as a decimal figure this will convert it to a fraction in column D of the 'unsettled hedges' worksheet.
What do i need to change in my code to make it enter the price in either format?
I have a textbox on a form that has a default value of 0.00. When the user enters a number I want it to format it to currency with two decimal places. I've tried form.textbox1.text = formatcurrency(textbox1.text,"0.00") but it won't format it to two decimal places.
I don't want the end user to do anything to TextBox2 (I've got it set to Enabled=False). I would like TextBox2 to populate in $$ format based on a formula : TextBox1 % x Range("Sales_Price")
I can get TextBox2 to populate correctly, but I can't get it to convert to $$ format. Everything I've come across uses the 'Exit' or 'AfterUpdate' event - but I don't think I can use these events since the User won't actually be doing anything to TextBox2.
I have an txtBox in a userForm. I need the value of the userform in a customized format i.e. the user will be able to enter only 5 digit numbers and after the value has been entered the txtBox should dispaly the value with prefix "A".
For example: 1. If user enters values as 56, then txtBox should display as A00056. 2. If user enters values as 12346, then txtBox should display as A12346.
In my Excel VBA user form, there are multiple instances of the MS DTPicker control, which feed multiple text boxes. These in turn are linked to named cells on an worksheet. Note at this stage please that dates will not always be required, hence the text boxes. Only the button on the DTP controls are visible, alongside the related textbox.
My problem is that the values in the cells are in US date format and I need them to be recognised in the UK date format. The dates therein must be formatted as dates (ie not as text), as they are used throughout other worksheets for calculations. In the sample below, DTPickerDateOfIncorporation is the named cell (the control source). I know from Roy's responses to other questions on the DTPicker that he doesn't use it - is there a better alternative?
I need to be able to format a textbox as curancy. Simple enough, right?
The problem is that this box is loaded from two sources. The first is automatic using the change event, this works well. The second is to enter directly into the textbox, which requires using the exit event, this also works.
The problem comes when I try to use both events. The change event interfers with the direct entry (the format keeps changing the entered value and will not allow the user to finish entering).
I am making a user form in Excel 2007 and for some reason where I am using textboxes for a user to enter numeric values the output on the spreadsheet has a general format which is causing an IF function to return an incorrect value. Is there a way to make sure the output from the form is in "numeric" format?
A particular textbox in myuserform requires a displayed format of 000.000. I would like the user to enter a no less, and no more, than 6 digits. On tab, the textbox displays that value in the preferred format.
eg. enter 123456, TAB, results in textbox display of 123.456
I have tried ...
[Private Sub freq_AfterUpdate() freq = Format(freq, "000.000") End Sub But this results in 123456.000
while trying to limit the user's input to a userform textbox to no avail. For example one textbox on the form should only be numbers and I therefore want to restrict the user to typing in a two digit code like 02 or 72 (not for calculations). Another textbox I only want to allow the user to input 6 characters in the format letter, four numbers and a letter. If the user inputs the wrong stuff a message box pops up and the focus is reset
We have created a userform with several textbox for numbers. We'd like to show them with a format similar to "###,##0.00" and allow the users to enter numbers without commas, but always show the textbox formated. Is there any special way to manage this format? As the textbox is a "text" value, how can we manage the input and the numbers? Should we always replace the "," withi a nullstring? Example:
Private Sub tbCakPrice_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) tbCakPrice.Text = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value), "######0.00") tbPxCakCnFCgl.Value = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value) + Val(tbFleteRealCgl.Value), "########0.00") End Sub.......................
i have this userform which has 20 textboxes. these boxes are used for numbers only. however, i want my numbers, as i type them, to appear in the boxes with thousands separators. even if i don't type the commas, the numbers will be formatted as if i typed them with such. Do i have to format the textboxes one by one for the formatting that I want or there are codes that could be used for all these textboxes?
I have a textbox in an excel userform and want the display to be formatted. When "9.1" is entered "9.100" shows either before or after going to the next textbox on userform. The code below is not working.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() txtWaste = Format(Me.txtWaste, "00.000") End Sub
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.
First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.
I have a calendar userform that enters a date into a userform textbox in the format mm/dd/yy.
I am in the UK, so default date format is dd/mm/yyyy but i need it as above - mm/dd/yy
So, when I get a MsgBox to repeat Textbox1.Value (the date from the calendar object, formatted mm/dd/yy) and repeat it in format dddd mmmm dd yyyy, it reads the value not as I want it, mm/dd/yy, but as the usual dd/mm/yyyy - so instead of reading 08/01/12 as Wednesday August 01 2012 it is giving me Sunday January 08 2012 - even though in the cells on the worksheet that are populated from the textbox, the date reads correctly, so 08/01/2012 is indeed 1st August 2012 not January 8th 2012...
So it's the MsgBOx function reading the textbox in the userform wrong, and formatting makes no difference...
Can I fix this without changing my regional settings? Is there a way to set the region in vba then unset when leaving the program? I don't want to have to change regional, and anyway, the program will be used by others who won't know / want to do that.
