Pasting Into Find Command

Jun 19, 2009

I have recorded a macro in Excel that copies the contents of a cell in one worksheet, then goes to another, selects a column, runs the Find command and then pastes the clipboard contents into the "Find what" field.

Naturally when I read the code back in visual basic the macro is now programmed to always search for the data I copied from the original cell. The problem is the data in that cell changes all the time so I need it to always copy whats in there and paste it into the Find what field.

Pasting Cells Using Offset Command Based On Variable Cell Data?

Mar 3, 2014

I am trying to paste data into cells that are offset from specific data in my excel sheet.

The code I've got so far is:

[Code] ....

What I am aiming for is to search my Columns G and H that contain the values 1 & 1. Then from the cells that contain those variables, move 2 row up and 7 columns to the left and then paste on that active cell.

I am completely new to VBA so im sure there plenty wrong with this VBA script but so far ive managed to paste the data but it just pastes across the whole row instead of just the cells ive copied.. now i just get errors on the script.

Find If The Cells In Colume B Are In Cloumn A And Do Some Copy Pasting

Mar 10, 2008

I got 2 columns A and B, I need to find if the cells in colume B are in cloumn A and do some copy pasting. But sometimes when it cant be find in column A, then VBA shows an error message. What I want is if it cant be find in column A, then skip it and go to the next cell of B and find it in A again. I think it can be done with On error resume next, On error goto 0, but i cant make it work.

FIND Command In VBA

Feb 27, 2009

I need to find the row number of the first instance of the string 'TIMEACT
in column A. I know that it must exist at some point in column A, but I do not know where. Column A might have 100,000 entries... ie: a very large number, so I'd appreciate it if the code could be very general.

Using Find And Replace Command In VBA?

Apr 3, 2014

I have one sheet in my workbook called 'mapping' which has a list of codes on it, the length of which will vary on a periodic basis.

I have another fairly large sheet on the workbook called 'data' (around 2000 rows) that will also vary in size. I want to do a search on the data tab for each code that is contained on column 4 of the mapping tab and if the code is found, enters the corresponding value from column 1 of the mapping tab to the cell 6 columns to the left of where the code was found on the data tab (cols H and B in this case). Hopefully that makes sense!

The issue I have is the codes maybe contained more than once on the data tab so I need the find/replace command to search the whole of the data tab and perform the task each time.

The end result being the filename and the filesize shown..

What Command Is Executing Or What Was Last Command Used

Feb 17, 2010

Is there any way to tell (from VBA) what GUI command is currently in progress or what the last command used was?

On a wish list perhaps: Application.LastCommand and/or Application.CurrentCommand

Let's say I'm in the "Sheet_Change" event and want to know what caused the change. Was the event triggered by "Delete", "Paste", "Keystrokes" ...

AutoCAD VBA has "Begin_Command (CommandName as String)" and "End_Command (CommandName as String)" events which I find very useful. Basically I'd like to emulate that to the greatest extent possible.

Application.Caller does not seem to work for the stated purpose. I've been searching for a workaround by means of reading the "Undo Stack". Numerous articles written by experts state that the undo stack is not accessible from VBA.

I've considered reading the text from the "Undo" button's caption but it just seems like such a hack ... not that this whole idea isn't a hack

Command Button Name / Sort By Command Button

Feb 3, 2010

How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons

e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.

Run Command Button Click From Another Command Button

Aug 31, 2007

I have a userform with a button on it named But1. Is it possible to store But1 into a variable then activate the But1_Click action using a variable?

Dim strButname As String
strButname ="But1"

Now, how would you activate the But1_Click method using strButname variable. With listboxes you can use the Control(strListboxName) methodology?

This doesn't work, but gives you an idea of what I am trying to do.

Moving Whole Row Down When Pasting?

Let's say there's a couple row:


Here's a column I will be pasting:

If I want to "Insert Copied Cells" in place of Yellow on Row1 and shift the cells down, the rows would look like this:

[Code] .....

How can I make it so the rows would be the following during such a paste:

This is because I have hundreds of cells that I need to insert as columns all the while pushing complete rows down. If you're trying to understand why, it will be for some online marketing purpose as demonstrated here in this sheet: [URL] ...

Allow Typing But Not Pasting

Jul 12, 2007

On a sheet of my workbook, I need to allow typing but not pasting. I'm using Workbook, because I'd just as soon not allow pasting anywhere.

If the data is copied from within Excel, this seems to work:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

but if the data is copied from somewhere outside of Excel, it pastes it anyway.

Copying And Pasting

Dec 1, 2007

I've got cells which change after I use Solver to do simulations, These cells after the calculation is run I'd lke to paste into a seperate sheet and row for example (in preparating of charting them for example)..

I would like to paste it as folllows for example... .. but problem is, let's say the below list are in column A of the new sheet, than column B would be the first output of the calculation in the other sheet, column C would be the second output from the calculation in the other sheet. and so on..

I don't know the first thing on scripting, but I'd like to click on button where the calculations are made which when clicked on ,will paste to the other sheet in this sort of manner below.

Each calculation will use another column.. so the script must recognise there is other columns to the left already filled, ie. B, C, D, E F, coresponding to the results of calculations already performed.

Macro Not Pasting

Jan 11, 2009

I am trying to use the code below to select certain information from different areas of each sheet in the workbook and paste it onto the List sheet one after the other so I end up with a long list made up of short lists off each sheet. The macro runs through each sheet OK. each sheet has the correct area I want to copy highlighted, so I know it's selecting the right area for copying, but the 'List' sheet is blank, i.e. nothing has been copied to it.

This macro is one I'm trying to put together from other macros I already have, and they all work

Sub Generate_Repair_Kit_List()
For Each ws In Sheets
Const testColumn = "A" ' change for your data
Dim lastRow As Long
Dim topCell As Range
Set topCell = Range(testColumn & 1) ' top of column
lastRow = Range(testColumn & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
'work up from the bottom until we hit
'a cell that has a border on the bottom edge.
Do While lastRow > 1
lastRow = lastRow - 1.........

Validation Gone If Pasting

Oct 27, 2006

I think this may have come up previously, but..

I want to either retain validation in a cell when I paste data into it - or

I want to apply a validation to a cell which already has data in it.

The validation only seems to work when you apply the rule to an empty cell then manually enter data into it. I ideally want to be able to paste multiple columns into validated columns to check for format compliance.
