Count Selected Rows In Sheet (and Use As Input Parameter)
I have a macro that adds a row with predefined formulas and formating. The macro is launched by clicking on a button. However, I would like to make it possible to add more than one row at a time. My plan to do this was to use the number of selected row as input to the current macro. If the user selects row 1,2,3 and 4 (or 15, 16, 17 and 18, and so on) four new rows should be added. I would just add;

Pass Value Of Range From Another Sheet
I am using a spreadsheet with two sheets, basically, one sheet has a combo box control, you select a name from there and click on "Go". The function is supposed to go into the next sheet (Sheet2) and retrieve a value from there (in the same row as the selected name).

I am using the following code (on button click):

Dim strValue As String
strValue = Range("A1").Value
MsgBox (strValue)

I've simplified this, but essentially my problem is this - it isn't picking up any value at all - there is text entered in A1 so what is the problem?

Change Sheet Name In Cell And Pass Through Formula
I can't use code for this problem as I need to give this to someone who doesn't know VBA. They will need to use it in several different reports, so I can't produce something in VBA very easily. I have three worksheets, Summary, Year1 and Year2.

I want to display either Year1 or Year2 data in the Summary sheet depending on what the user enters in a cell in the Summary sheet. For example, if the user enters "Year1" in cell E2 then I want to point to a cell in the Year1 spreadsheet.
I tried using formula: =E2 & "!B3" but this doesn't work. Is there another solution? I have attached an example.

Parameter Query
Here it goes.

My spreadsheet is populated by data coming from MS Query, i'm entering a parameter value to display the desired data in my spreadsheet. My problem is, i have to close and open the file to have the parameter prompt so in that case i can enter the parameter value.

Is there anyway to call the parameter prompt so i will not open and close the file, its really time consuming...

If possible, i just want a command button that calls the parameter prompt.

Input Parameter To Set A Limit
How do I adjust the VB code below so when the user clicks the command button they are prompted to set a limit.
i.e the code only runs til it hits the limit and stop (instead of running until it there are no more x in the columns)

Row 2, Col 9 stores the column numbers (listed as 1, 2,.....100) so thought this could be used in some way.

1. how do i set up the code so a user can enter a parameter value e.g 50 (which is the limit but also includes the values in column number "50")

2. how do i adjust the code so it take the parameter value and stop when it reaches column number "51"...

Tranferring From A List To A Two Parameter Table
I need a two parameters table deriving data from a list in another sheet. The vertical column of the two parameters table will be the names of the personnel, and the horizontal one will be the dates, in weeks form. The list contains the names, flight departure, flight arrival and no. of working days spent in the foreign country. What I need to do is to tranferr the data from that list onto the table.

For eg, if john flew overseas on 20-Dec to 15-Jan, the list will show john on column A, 20-Dec in column B, 15-Jan in column C and 20 working days on column D.

This list of personnel and their data should go into the two parameters table, where it will be identified when the personnel will be overseas according to the calendar of the project. Since the vertical heading is the dates of every week, a date that corresponds to period where the personnel is overseas will reflect a number in the cell. The number will be the number of working days the personnel spent on the foreign country, therefore the max will be a 5 and minimum is a 0. I need a formula that will fill every cell within the area of the tables.

To Use Solver To Determine An Input Parameter Of The BINOMDIST()
I'm trying to use Solver to determine an input parameter of the BINOMDIST() formula that provides the exact answer I want. It works for some inputs and outputs but not for all.

For example, I want 4 successes out of 7 trials to yield a 95% answer, meaning I need to itterate on the "P" input in the formula [=BINOMDIST(4,7,"P",TRUE) should result in .95]. Using solver it iterates successfully to .3413.

Now, change 4 to 6, and solver drives "P" to an answer that causes a #NUM result (P= 4.023), however I can manually input 0.6518 and I get the right answer.

I've tried adding constraints that won't let the input go outside the bounds of 0 and 1.0 but it does anyway.

Oracle Date/Time As A Parameter In MSQuery
I am attempting to use MSQuery to extract records from an Oracle transaction table by passing user defined Date/Time field parameters.

So if the date range for the query is for Fiscal Period 10 of this year, my parameters would be:
[StartDate] = #2002/10/1#
[EndDate] = #2002/11/1#

Daily transaction activity is in the early morning hours ending at 6:00AM so my Criteria is:
Between [StartDate] + .25 and [EndDate] + .25
Note: The +.25 represents 1/4day = 6hrs (6:00AM)

If I use the hardcoded Start/End Dates, my query works fine, but if I try and
pass the dates as parameters I get "ORA-00932 inconsistent datatypes" error. And I can't seem to pass the Date/Time combination successfully....

If anyone has encountered a solution for how to pass a Date/Time Paremeter into MSQuery I would love to hear how you did it.
I'm starting to pull my few remaining hairs out!

Formula Requires Parameter In Quotes, Indirect Doesn't Work
I've been given a formula to use (embedded in an add-in that is password-protected). One of the parameters REQUIRES quotes.

The formula goes like this: =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,"ABC")

If I put ABC in a cell (say C5) and use the formula =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,INDIRECT(C5)), the formula doesn't work.

If I put "ABC" in cell C5, the indirect function still work make the function work.

Even if I have ABC in cell C5 and use =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,""""&C5&"""") or =MYFORMULA(1,2,3,""""&INDIRECT(C5)&""""), these won't work.

I wish I could just change the UDF behind this, but that isn't possible.

Find Matching Document Value And Max Date Using Function Based On Certain Parameter
I have the following info in a table:

name | doc date | doc value
a | 2009/01/01 | IN111
b | 2009/02/04 | IN222
c | 2009/02/05 | IN333
a | 2009/01/05 | CN111
d | 2009/03/01 | IN444
b | 2009/03/01 | CN222
a | 2009/04/01 | IN555

Firstly, I need to find the LAST DOCUMENT DATE for "a" where #doc_value starts with IN*** (invoice). Manually, I can see that it would be "2009/04/01", but my spreadsheet runs 6000+ entries. I need a function to do this.

Secondly, I need to find the corresponding #doc_value for that date (in this case, IN555).

Multiple Parameter Lookup For Multiple Table Ranges
In the attached file i have multiple tables for different types of conservatory roofs (16 of them in total). The ranges at the top and side relate to milimeter measurements and the data in the middle relate to the price for that sized conservatory roof. The table works where the two ranges intercept each other. I have a formula to do this for one of the tables only. What i would like is a way of choosing which type of roof to use (i.e. which table to use) and then to be able to input the measurements and the price to be displayed. All of this needs to be done in one query so its as user friendly as possible. i've had is to use a pivot table, i feel it is not possible to use a pivot table to do this sort if thing after research into them, although i am un-familiar in the making of them

Pass Argument To A Sub From Another Sub
The second subroutine below selects a range of cells, in this case a column. It selects a range that ends with the last cell that has data and starts with either the first cell that has data or the second cell has data (needed for instance if the first cell is just the heading and doesn't contain data). You'll notice I have hardcoded the "includeFirst" option right now. I don't know how to pass this as an argument when calling this subroutine.

In the first subroutine updateAll() I need to call the second subroutine and want to pass an argument to it. Maybe my approach using subs and is the wrong way to do this?

Sub updateAll()
includeHeader = False
Application.Run "SelectColumn"
' need something like:
' Application.Run "SelectColumn(includeHeader)"
' where subroutine below has something like:
' Sub SelectColumn(includeFirst)
End Sub

Sub SelectColumn()
'Select a Column or Row of Cells in a Used Range Quickly
includeFirst = False
'includeFirst = True
Dim UpBound As Range
Dim LowBound As Range
If ActiveCell.Row > 1 Then
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0)) Then

Pass Keystrokes To Another Program
Is it possible to write a VBA macro that passes keystrokes to another program? I have a spreadsheet with over 650 UPC codes for new products that have to be entered into our inventory system. I have downloaded and tried a few macro recorders that record keystrokes and mouse movements, but find them to be unreliable at best.

When I use the macro recorder to automate a task in Excel, (such as moving data from one sheet to another or importing data from a text file) I always go in after I'm done recording and add additional code to bullet-proof the macro (make sure the focus is set properly, etc.). I need to have this kind of control for this task and a macro recorder doesn't give me that (at least not these lower-end shareware programs I have been trying). I know that there are some higher-end macro recorders that include scripting that you can write and edit, but this our "slow" season business-wise and my supervisor has made it clear that he doesn't want to spend any money right now.

My task is simple (just very repetitive, which is why I don't want to spend all day sitting in front of my PC doing this):
1. Open Excel spreadsheet, go to starting data cell
2. Open 3rd party application and go to the appropriate data entry screen
3. Write a macro that does the following:
- checks to make sure the sheet is the active sheet
- copies contents of the active cell
- moves focus to other app and pastes data from active cell
- moves focus back to spreadsheet, copies the contents of the cell to the right (using ActiveCell.Offset?)
- makes other app active and pastes data
- repeat copy/paste for the next cell to right (in spreadsheet)
- press twice to save record before returning focus to the spreadsheet
- move cursor down one line, repeat entire process until active cell is blank

Is this possible to do? The third party program is not able to listed as a reference in VBA, but I didn't know if it was possible to at least pass keystrokes to it. It is actually a terminal emulator (Anzio Lite). I guess the full-blown version of the program has some scripting capabilities (from the documentation I've read), but the Lite version does not.
