Pass Input-box String From Sub To Main

Oct 23, 2013

how to specify a file extension type for a browseforfolder part of what i've been doing.

It's not calling correctly as i'm not sure how to feed the inputData string back into the main.

Obviously there's probably better ways of doing this, but can my way be corrected easily?

I've been looking into ByVal and ByRef, but have only seen examples goin from main to the sub and not the other way.

Code:
Sub Main()
Dim strFolderName As String
Dim strFolderTest As String
Dim FRCntrHiLim As Variant
MsgBox "before calling inputbox"
Call InputBoxTest(inputData) '

Pass String Variable To Userform Using Property Procedures

May 29, 2013

I want to display a string to users. Normally I would do that using message boxes. But that would not give me enough control over the font size, and I want to display using font size 48.

I could have used global variables, but that is not a good coding way. The other way of doing that is using property procedures. I could pass a string variable to a Label control on the form and then could format it.

Search For Decimal And When Found Pass Row Number To Rest Of String?

Feb 12, 2014

I am trying to search through column "I" for numbers that are decimals, when the first decimal is found, use the row number that the first decimal appears in the string that populates the bookmarks stored in a word template I have created. The code I have so far checks for the decimal and then populates the bookmarks, however it requires me to input the ranges manually, meaning I can set them as the first row in my tabel. But if the decimal appears in the second row and not the first I'm bookmarking the wrong data. Here is the code I have so far;

VBA / Using String From Input Box As Criteria For CountIF

Aug 19, 2014

I'm trying to enter text (a staff members initials) into an Input Box so that the initials are then used as the citeria in a CountIF formula entered by VBA

A simplified version of the code I am using is:

Dim staffname As String
staffname = InputBox(Prompt:="You name please.", _
Title:="ENTER INITIALS", Default:="MC")
Range("H9").FormulaR1C1 = "=COUNTIF(RC[-3]:RC[-1],"" & staffname & "")"

The issue is getting the staffname string to be entered within the formula.

What is the correct combination of "" & to enable this to work?

Display Decimal Value Input As String Format

Aug 16, 2012

I'm writing a macro that will automatically change the display in a column of cells.

The input in the cell would be a decimal value, (e.g. 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2). As of now, I think the only input options are whole numbers and 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 fractions.

After inputting the decimal value, the cell should update to display the value as the following string format :

Input: 1.25
Displays: 1-1/4"

The purpose being to enable fast data entry while displaying in the desired format.

Here is where I know to begin for the automatic update:

Code:

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.EnableEvents = False
'
'
'Code
'
'
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

VBA For Inserting Input String Alphabetically Into Column Of Names?

Oct 2, 2013

I have a list of names in the A column of the sheet. I wish to use the input string, a new name, of a vba box to insert into the column of existing names in alphabetical order by inserting an entire row, which I suspect will be the case anyway. Also 'Return' key doesn't seem to be inserting a CR on the page that I typed this request upon.

Copy To Main Worksheet From Many Worksheets

Aug 7, 2006

I went through your board and found the code below posted My Mr. Tom Urtis.
I tired it and it worked fine except that it needs another workbook.
Can it be changed to work in the same workbook to copy to a sheet named as Main from all other worksheets that I can chose?

Sub ImportDistricts()
'Instructional Message Box
MsgBox "Click OK to access the Open dialog." & vbCrLf & _
"Navigate to the folder path that contains" & vbCrLf & _
"the District workbooks you want to import." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"When you get inside that folder path," & vbCrLf & _
"use your mouse to select one workbook," & vbCrLf & _
"or use the Ctrl button with your mouse" & vbCrLf & _
"to select as many District workbooks" & vbCrLf & _
"as you want from that same folder path." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _ ....................

TOC: Main Menu Column Insertion

Sep 24, 2008

I've been using this code to make menus for all my Excel sheets since NateO made it back in 2003.

- The workbook has 370 sheets, 365 of them are one day per month with the tab named ddmmmyy.
- The Main Menu in this file puts the months Jan, Feb, Mar, etc in cells A3:L3.
- In the single cells under each month it put the month day tab name (ddmmmyy) and hyperlinks it to the sheet tab.

I would like to do two new things.
1. Put the name of the month in everyother cell in row 2, so Jan would be in A2, Feb in C2 and Mar in E2, etc.
2. Put the day of the week for each date in the cell to the right of the date. So the column heading would be Jan in A2, 01Jan08 in A3 and Tue in B3.

I thought I could make another macro and just insert the rows after the Main Menu was built and then VBA copy/paste TEXT(cell,"ddd") down the ranges, but thought there might be a better idea out there...

Sub Workbook_TOC()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim wsNw As Worksheet
Dim z As Integer

Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*$H10))/$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.
