When I drag a text file from my desktop into an existing Excel worksheet it automatically creates a new workbook. I'd like to know how to modify this such that I can drop the file into my existing worksheet (and not have a new workbook create) and then run some VBA macros on it.
I have a spreadsheet where I often have to exchange pairs of cells. I currently do this by dragging Cell A to a blank portion of the sheet, dragging Cell B to Cell A's former location, then dragging Cell A to Cell B's former location. I was just thinking that I might be able to use VBA to allow me to drag Cell A to Cell B and have them "trade places".
I don't even know what events are involved in the dragging process so I don't know where to start.
I am looking to if there is anyway to move an image box using a mouse drag and drop action. I have put together a little example of what I am trying to work with and was wondering if anyone on here had any tricks to make this work.
I realise the drag and drop method only applies to the textbox and listbox but have seen some old code that can simulate the drag and drop by creating a border of some sort to illustrate where the image box is going to be placed and final just setting the properties of that image box to where the border is placed.
In the example type in a size in the width and height textboxs (I used 3000,3000) and then what I want to do from there is move the white box using the mouse within the blue box.
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Application.CutCopyMode = False Application.OnKey "^c", "" Application.CellDragAndDrop = False End Sub Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
OR This one:
Option Explicit Private Sub Workbook_Activate() With Application .CutCopyMode = False .CellDragAndDrop = False
I noltice that one uses "Option Explicit" and one doesn't, one seems to be longer than the other, but when I tested both, they both seem to do the same thing. I did notice that neither one of them prevents a "paste" into the worksheet when something is copied from an outside source, but that is not a concern right now!!!
I am researching the possibility of using Excel 2003 WITHOUT a Cad or Drawing package to simulate a drawing. (Consultants inquiries are WELCOME). The idea is to prompt the user (Sales Rep or Customer) for a few key dimensions and then plot out a closed curve based on the coordinantes entered. This shape, which would need to be accurately scaled, would then be sectioned and used as a canvas for dragging and dropping various icons.
Why use Excel instead of CAD?
Other than "everyone" having it, the placement of the "icons" relative to the perimeter of the curve will be used to estimate material costs and generate a quotation like a configurator application.
Key hurdles seem to be the drawing of a curve with cells as pixels and using drag & drop with custom icons - possible as an Add-In?
I making a template for multiple users to import data into for analysis. I want them to be able to delete and drag-and-drop data to get rid of any bogus values. However i need forumlas that reference those to NOT follow the values as there as moved. As a simple example say you have two columns, column A is a set of random numbers, column B is the number from coumn A times 2. If take the bottom half of column A and drag it up one cell, overwriting a cell, now the cell in column B next to the overwritten cell has a #REF err and ever cell below that now references a Cell in column A from the previous row. I want a formula that references a static address and will not follow the cell if it is moved.
If I use named ranges rather than specific cells references it works for the above example, however for my actual form it does not. Even though the ranges and formulas stay the same I start getting incorrect values. If there is no other way to this I will try to figure why the named ranges do not work.
I have a form with a main list box and several other list boxes. I drag and drop records from the main list box to the others. When I drop a record onto one of the list boxes, a corresponding worksheet is updated with the same record. This works just fine.
The problem I have is:I close and re-open the form after having added some dataDrag/Drop a record to the list boxThe worksheet won't find the first empty rowExample: If the worksheet already contains 4 rows of data, I have to drag/drop 5 times before the fifth row will be updatedI would like to drop the data the first time and have the first blank row updated
1.) I have tried variations of "xlUp", "xlDown", and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) in the "Worksheets("Monday")... line of code; all to no avail.
2.) The cells contain formatting (borders)
Here is the relevant code:
'Copy items from the list box to the worksheet For intI = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount For intJ = 1 To ListBox2.ColumnCount If IsEmpty(Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ)) Then Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ).Value = ListBox2.List(intI - 1, intJ - 1) End If Next intJ Next intI
i am working on a spreadsheet that is doing two things 1) its allowing the user to choose between 1 to 3 number or N/A from the list validation option and 2) there is a checkbox if one selects that all the columns that have the formula will become N/A irrespect of data in it. I am using the following formula in the list validation option a3 is the check boc.
E5 =1 E6= 2 E7 = 3 E8=N/A
=if(a3=true, $E$8, $E$5:$E$8)
The issue I am having with this is, if I start selecting something from the drop down and half way I realize I need to check the box, it will only make it E8 value for the cells I have not touched and the ones I have already selected the drop down value it will remain. However I want it to override the value to E8 irrespect.
1) If the user of the spreadsheet clicks on the check box (this is in A3 cell) which i have linked it using format control then all the cell (Column E) that have the formula =if(A3=True, "N/A", ) will have N/A which is not applicable and not an error as you mentioned. I have successfully implemented this
2) If the user does not select the check box (a3) then each of the cell (Column E) has a drop down which the user can select either 1,2,3 or N/A. Which I have successfully implemented by using the data validations. Now the struggle I am having is as follows: I have attached the spreadsheet for your reference too.
Now if I select number 2 in cell E10, 2 in cell E11 and 3 in cell E 13 and you can see alll the other cell in column E are 0, because of the formula and the box in A3 is not checked in Tab 1. In Tab 2 I have checked the box everything turned N/A in column E except cells E10, E11 and E13 because I had previously selected 2,2,3 respectively. This is not what I want, what I want is when I check that box everything should turn to N/A basically an override function is what I want to created.
I have a situation where I need a macro to reference another cell in the sheet if the cell is left blank. If the user wants to edit the value, they have the option to manually input a value but if they decide to leave it blank, it autopopulates the referenced cell.
I am trying to assign a macro to the Print button on the Standard Toolbar. Basically I want that button to print the number of pages I've specified in a cell, but I still want to be able to use the 'File/Print...' option if I need to.
I did try to solve this issue in an earlier post, but this exact problem remained unsolved. For more information
A client of ours has one particular file that has some very strange behavior as described below. This only occurs with the one particular file and the behavior is consistent across different PC's in both their office and ours. All other Excel files in both offices work fine. Here's what happens:
- you can use Windows Explorer to copy the file between drives without a problem (as expected)
- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then save it back to that same drive with either the same file name or a different file name, the file works fine (as expected)
- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then do a "Save As" to save it to a *different* drive with either the same file name or a different file name (in default .xls format), the new file causes errors in Excel every time you open it as per below (weird!)
- even if you do a "Save As" and choose a different format eg Excel 97-2003 or Excel 95, the error behavior is consistent (weird!).............
I would like cell D2 (on Sheet1) to default to the value of "EACH", unless the value is found on Sheet2 (column C). If it is found on Sheet2, then I want it to match the unit beside the respective upc code (see Col Q on Sheet1, and Col A on Sheet2) . Then I would like to be able to drag down cell D2 and all cells on Sheet2 would match and any that do not match, would be filled with "Each". Desired results are shown in attached example file.
I understand how to click and drag a cell or row of data but is it possible to click and drag a group of rows of data? I have 12 rows of data that will repeat itself every 12 weeks. I can "save & paste" easily enough, but just curious if there is a way to click and drag 12 rows of data so that they remain the same for every group of 12 weeks.
I have an inventory sheet where I occassionally have to create more rows with the same information. So I will create rows and then copy and paste info into them. What I would like to do is be able to drag the information by clicking on the lower left corner and populate the cells that way. The problem is that if there is a number in the cell then it will automatically add to it. For instance, if I try to drag the contents of cell labeled klaraid 1112 then it will add incrementally to this in the cells below.....1113, 1114 and so on. If there are no numbers in the thing i'm dragging then it works fine. How do I drag cells with numbers without it adding to the contents incrementally?
im pretty sure the problem comes down to the hashtag and quotation marks that i added, as the formula properly increased the cell references when i drag down without the hashtag and quotations. however, i sort of need it because adding those seems to be the only way i can get the hyperlink to link me over to the other sheet and to the correct cell containing the hyperlink.
part 2 of problem: the hashtag and quotations is currently a workaround method for me. the original intention was for the hyperlink to directly link me to a website, which is referenced from a separate sheet. however, without the hashtag and quotations, i get a "Cannot open specified file" error.
