# Pass Random Generation In Cell To Variable

Jan 1, 2008

I want to generate a random number based in a poisson and i use this

Application.Run "ATPVBAEN.XLA!Random", ActiveSheet. Range("\$B\$2"), 1, 1, 5 , , 35

But i want to save the number in a dim single variable called N. I try to put N where i have write ActiveSheet.Range("\$B\$2") and do N=Application.Run ...
But it doesn't work.

## MC W/Random Number Generation

May 4, 2006

I get the following error whenever I try running a Monte Carlo simulation with iterations in excess of 64000 (The MC simulation calls the 'NormSInv' worksheet function at least once per iteration, and the argument to the 'NormSInv' function is always a standard normal RANDOM number also generated by Excel VBA): Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the NormSInv property of the WorksheetFunction class
Why do I inevitably encounter this error ONLY when the number of iterations exceeds 64000, for instance? Simulations with iterations < 64000 run smoothly without a glitch.

I understand how RAND and RANDBETWEEN work, but have a slightly more complicated random number generation problem that requires a number that isn't solely between two numbers.

I have one cell that is randomly generating a number between 0 and 350 (we'll call this value A) and another randomly generating a number between 0 and 15 (value B). Then, I have a third cell (value C) that equals 15 minus B. Where I am having trouble is with a fourth cell (value D). This cell I want to have randomly generate a number between 0 and 350 but it needs to be D less than the value in A or C more than the value in A. Is there an advanced random number generation technique that can solve this?

## Generation Of Random Numbers And Sum Of Those With A Condition

Oct 4, 2005

I have three columns A,B&C In the column A Iwill generate random
numbers between 40&50, In the Column B I will generate random numbers
between 35&45, The column C is the sum of Column A&B(i.e. C=A+B) but I
the sum should be between 83&88. I need acondition such that the random
numbers generated in Column A&B Should satisfy the Column C(A+B)
condition sdatisfying the A&B columns condition.

## Random Numbers Generation, No Repeats

May 8, 2006

I'm trying to write a code that will generate random numbers and no number appears more than onece.

For I = 0 To 3
For J = 0 To I
Do
n = Int(4 * Rnd) + 1 'random number generated
Array1(I) = n 'random number settled in an array
If (I = I - J) Then 'checking for the same place in array
numsOK = True
Else
If Array1(I) = Array1(I - J) Then ' comparing two different places in an array
numsOK = False
Else
numsOK = True
End If
End If

Loop Until numsOK = True
Next J
Next I

## Random Number Generation Without Repeating Across Same Row Or Column?

Nov 24, 2011

Been trying to think of a way to get random numbers 1 to 36 generated without repeating in the same column, however also getting it to perform the same opertaion in 9 more columns (B:J) without the same number appearing in the same row.

example

1 2 5 4
2 5 3 1
3 4 1 5
4 1 2 3
5 3 4 2

Unsure if this is possible, have created a basic script for random number generation but have no clue how to expand across columns.

## Interesting Question - Random Number Generation

Oct 1, 2008

it is possible to generate a completely random number generation in excel?

Other than using the rand() function and then sorting by top or bottom (as then have affected the sample by choosing which direction it is sorted).

And the randbetween() function changes everytime you modify a cell.

## Random Value Generation From Skewed Normal Distribution

Sep 20, 2008

I would like to generate a random value using a skewed normal distribution. For inputs I have the sample mean, standard deviation, and skewness. I would like to find a way to generate numbers randomly that would fit the skewed normal distribution described by the inputs.

Some information about skewed normal distributions can be found here: ...

## Pass Cell Value Using Variable Row Number

Aug 15, 2008

Following statement works for me:

bdcTerm1 = ThisWorkbook. Sheets("ws2"). Range("A1").Value

But instead I want to parse through 50 rows and dynamically get the value instead of using a static Range("A1"). So I am trying to do the following:

For Row = 1 To bdc_rows
bdcTerm1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ws2").Cell(Row, 1).Value
bdcTerm2 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ws2").Cell(Row, 2).Value
Next Row

But I get errror.

## Pass Cell Variable Between Macros

Jun 11, 2007

I have a macro that nicely select the named range that the active cell is in. I want to chain on to that macro a macro that has a parameter a range with that active selection. I dont see how to "take" the active selection on the worksheet from within the macro and pass it to another. I assume I could change the cellInRange macro to return a range, however I dont yet see how to do that.

## Pass Date In Cell To Variable

Jun 3, 2008

I am using this program in one workbook to capture the datevalue in integer from another workbook which i opened. But the program as it reaches the line x2=Datevalue( Cells(2,14).Value) gives a Type Mismatch error.

Public Sub find_date()
Dim x2 As Long

'I am trying to activate the last opened file by using workbooks.count
Workbooks(Workbooks.Count).Activate
Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Select

x2 = DateValue(Cells(2, 14).Value)

End Sub

Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;btw..the cells(2,14) has a date, formatted in the type of mm/dd/yyyy.

## Pass Decimal To Variable & Then To Cell

Jun 3, 2008

Why when I want to use a varaible with a value like that 2.1, 0.9, 3.5 in a code to create a formula gives me an error? How to get it work?

Sub Code1()
Dim k As Double
k = 2.1
Range("h11").Formula = "=" & k
End Sub

Strange, but it works well if k is an integer with no Decimal Fraction, like 1, 2, 5, 11 ..

## Find Row Number Of Cell & Pass To Variable

Aug 4, 2007

I am trying to create a macro (please look the attached excel what I have done), I have already crwated a macro that after 5 seconds is gonna change the background color of the of the cell en function of another cell.

That means if F3:F4 change the background color F8:is going to change the backgorung color also, every 5 seconds. The macro I wrote is also include in the excel attached file.

Now this is my problem... I have a variable cell that is give for D6 which could be A,B,C,D,E,F (Range F2:K2).

If the variable cell D6 is A the background color of F8:F9 should be the background color F3:F4 .

If the variable cell D6 is B the background color of F8:F9 should be the background color G3:G4 .

If the variable cell D6 is C the background color of F8:F9 should be the background color H3:H4 ......and etcetera.

## Variable Rows Per Column/ Automatic Combination Generation

Jun 19, 2007

The following table/ code is something which I've been trying to tailor from a previous post so I'm not taking the credit for what I think is some very good code. Unfortunately I can't find the link to it - sorry!

Right, I have a number of columns containing a various amount of data entries in each with the first row being the header. I would like to generate all possible combinations of this data in one column, the entries separated by commas, that will eventually be exported as a csv file.

The number of columns and number of rows in each column will be changed regularly ...

## Global Variable Or Pass Variable Between Sub-routines

Jan 26, 2007

The first goes through a directory and opens all the files.. after it opens a given file it goes off into a sub-routine to process the data in that file.

I am trying to create a counter in the first sub-routine and then pass that value into the second sub-routine to tell it to put the values out on the next row down.. so the first time through it puts the values out on row 1, next time it puts them out on row 2, etc.

## Pass Variable From One Userform To Another?

Oct 20, 2005

I have code in a userform that shows another userform with a text box. When the user types text there and presses OK, I want that userform to close (which it does fine), and return back to the original userform (which it does fine), but I want the typed text to be stored in a variable that the code in the original userform can use.

I tried declaring a public variable, "Rresponse1", in each userform's procedure, but that doesn't work. I test for the content of the variable afterward in the original userform and it is empty.

In the original userform I have:

SaveList.Show '(this is the second userform)
MsgBox "This is response1: " & Response1 '(to test if the variable is being passed)

In the userform SaveList, in the Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() procedure, I have:

Response1 = SaveList.ListName.Text
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox Response1 '(to test the variable, here it shows the text fine)

How do I get the Response1 variable to keep its content when control is passed back to the original userform?

## Pass The Variable In The Range

Now how do I write the range so that I don't have to write 100. I want to pass on the variable in the range.

the code should look somewhat like

Range("A1:BM").

I don't know how to pass this variable M onto the range.

## Pass Variable Between Modules

Dec 11, 2009

I created the following sub to signal when a macro in Module 1 is complete:

Public Sub Done()
Dim complete As Boolean
complete = True
End Sub
I placed this just before the end sub in the macro for which I am trying to detect that it has finished executing:

Call Done

End Sub
In the Sheet 1 Module, the code fails at the statement:

If complete = True Then
The error returned is "Variable not defined." All three subs are declared as Public. Why does the Sheet1 sub not recognize the variable "complete" from the Module 1 macro?

## Can't Pass Variable Value From Worksheet Sub To Userform Sub

May 24, 2014

I am trying to pass two variables RARD and CARD from Sheet1 'change selection' subroutine to the 'Set ARD Command button click' subroutine. The variable value remain empty and it gives me a 1004 error when I try to execute this line of code:

[Code] ....

What I am trying to do is put the text value 'ARD' in the cell on sheet1 which was the original cell I clicked on to open the userform2. To do this I click on the 'Set ARD' button on the userform2 which is then suppose to hide the userform2 and put the 'ARD' text in the selected cell on Sheet1.

## Pass A Variable To The Form Code

Jun 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with about 30 charts on it that I would like to attach a macro to which opens the chart in a form. I've figured out how to do this last part, but am stuck on how to pass a variable to the form code which tells excel which chart to copy. Essentially what I'm doing creating a macro for each chart which would run when that chart is clicked on. This macro is identical for each chart except for the name of the chart being passed.

Sub Chart1_click()
ShowChart "Chart 1"
End Sub

Sub ShowChart(c As String)
frmChart.Show
End Sub

In the UserForm_Initialize code located in the userform module, I'd like to call the code which saves and loads the image of the clicked on chart. But here's where I'm stuck. How do I pass c to the code in the form module...e.g, how to pass c to UserForm_Intialize and to ChartZoom? Here's what I have so far...

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize(c As String)
ChartZoom c
End Sub

Private Sub ChartZoom(c As String)

frmChart.Show

Dim Cht As Chart
Set Cht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(c).chart
Dim CName As String
CName = ThisWorkbook.Path & "cht.gif"
Cht.Export Filename:=CName, FilterName:="GIF"
imgCht.PictureSizeMode = fmPictureSizeModeZoom

End Sub

I have a macro that when it runs presents a form that gives the user an option to skip the calculations or continue. If they click Skip then it continues the 'Next CE' . My problem is I can't get the Boolean value to pass from the form to the macro. Here is what I have

The main macro

Sub Dividend_MF()
For Each sh In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets( Array("G&I", "Growth"))
For Each ce In sh. Range("a5:a" & sh.Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Row)
If Not IsEmpty(ce) And Not (IsError(ce.Offset(0, 56))) Then
If ce.Offset(0, 56) = "X" Then
