I am running a macro that populates the same chart with variable data. I have approximately 40 sets of data and wish to pause or stop the macro to view one of the sets of data more closely. The pause option would be better but Stop option is acceptable
I have macros that often pause for the user to take some action -- for instance, to confirm that the correct cells are selected, or to delete something. Usually I use the "Stop" command, which opens the VBA editor; when I finish doing the manual action, I just resume the macro.
When writing macros for actual users, I'd like to do the same thing without their having to deal with the VBA window. Is there a way to pause and resume action and remain in the Excel window?
I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.
What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.
I am trying to pause a macro on a protected sheet, select 2 adjacent cells (initially protected), utilize an existing drop down box to select a name from the list, copy the name from the list into the range of cells, then re-start the macro. I had no problem when there was just one name (see John Smith below). I tried to use the InputBox command but needed to actually type in the name.
I've written a macro for work that will work with our billing process. After part of it has run, I'd like to pause it for the user to check a column for errors and possibly update a table to get rid of those errors, then after those errors are fixed, have the ability to continue with the rest of the code. I tried to make a message box to remind the user to look for the errors, but it wouldn't allow me to click anywhere except for on the buttons.
I would like to add a pause to the following macro so that it inserts the word CANCEL 1 second after triggering. I know I need to use the Application.Ontime function but cannot work out how to integrate it.
Code: Sub Cancel() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Sheets("Sheet1").Range("T5") = "CANCEL" Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have a workbook with several hundred row the VBA code loops through. It takes about an hour to run all the calculations. Whenever I need to pause the script I hit ESC, which works well for me, but for other users it would be nice to have a command button that halts code. Even better would be another button to resume code.
I am running a Showcase query from inside excel. I want the query to update, drop the data in excel save it and then close. The problem is that the save command is executing before the data is dropped. The Wait command pauses all processes so it won't work. Is there a way to have a minute of filler until the data is dropped so it will save?
how to interrupt VBA code, allow user modifications to a chart, and then continue the code where it left off with a click of a button. I currently have the code in place where a UserForm pops up at a specific point and tells the user to make adjustments and press OK when done. It works fine but the UserForm displays and the macro resumes when OK is clicked, but I can't figure out how to activate the chart or the spreadsheet to allow editing while that UserForm is on the screen. If only I can get excel to allow me to sleect the spreadsheet and make changes while the UserForm is on the screen, I would be set. Can anyone please help me with any options to allow editing while the UserForm is on the screen so I can edit and then click the OK when done?
I posted something similar to this over two years ago. The way I got around it at the time was to break the code into two separate subs. This time around, the code is making 17 graphs and I want to ask for editing for each one before continuing. That would be a lot of individual sections of code.
I am wanting to pause a macro to allow a user to select a cell and when the user hits enter the macro starts running again. My intention is that a user would select cell B5 or B8 or B55 and then hit enter and the cell would move 6 cells right and enter a value from the macro. The following is what I have tried and even though it allows to select a cell, it doesn't make that cell the active cell.
my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.
If you run it now, ctrl t, it produces letters and changes alphabets as it hits a yellow box. If i change or add a yellow box, the letters change fine. The macro works perfectly, but instead of inputting the range or K3 to what ever, i would like to to run this macro and stop once it sees the row with the sort number of 4. ( this changes row postion depending on which sheet im working on, this is the problem).
Hi everyone I am having a little trouble with a sheet i'm currently working on. Having exhausted what i believe to be every avenue trying to do this without VBA, i've finally had to sucomb to it as i can't see an alternative and i'm no VB expert by any means! This is what i have so far:
I have a spreadsheet containing a macro to automatically sum values from week to week and display the max/min and average. This is almost fully working. The problem I have is the macro copies the sum formula down the page and doesn't stop at the last row. It always adds one or two extra rows. The formula should stop at row 77 however this does not happen and therefore the sum keeps going. Which in turn, distorts the max/min figures.
I'm trying to create a macro to input information into a cell then repeat until the information stops.
So say I have 10 rows of information that fill up A1:D10. in E1:E10 I'd like a macro to insert some data into E1 then go to E2 and do the same until the end and then stop. So since A11:D11 would be blank the formula would just stop.
I actually work on 100's of cells a day and this is for a bigger project I'm trying to put together or I would just drag.
I have got he below code in "thisworkbook" it works fine but I have a problem with it if it has been closed before the time expires. If it is closed it tries to reopen it and then close it again. So for my users who have got their security set to prompts the file will be closed and a message box appears saying "enable or disable Macros". If it is already closed than i dont really want this to happen. My security is set to low but i still see it flash up and the bottom then dissappear again. How can i get the Macro to stop if it has already beed closed??
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Sheets("database").Select Range("au16").Select Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:15:00"), "TimeOut" If ThisWorkbook.ReadOnly Then MsgBox ("The file is currently being used by another user, please contact them to ensure they have not left the file open.") ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False End If End Sub
Sub TimeOut() ThisWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=True End Sub
I've a set of tasks in Column A which I would like to measure. At times, Users flip from task A to task B then back to A and so on. I would like to be able to pause a timer on task A if when timer on task B is started and same as well with the other tasks.. When Task A is started again, it should continue the timer if not add the on-going time to the presently running time under that task.
I did not want to bother you again but I have a problem that I can not solve it because my knowledge in vba etc, are limited and could not become to find with Macro Recorder.Usually I solve the problems on my own by searching on Google and experimenting with ready Macros and Macro Recorder.
I have an excel file with a macro and I want before this macro launched, to run another macro that can check if the headers have the correct name and in its correct position. The headers is in first Row.
If are not in the correct position or if it doesn't exist or if not have the correct name, then the process of the next macro be stopped and of course be informed that there is a problem.But if Is everything okay, then proceed to the next macro and be informed that Is everything okay.
I have attached a Sample file with the headers i'm using.
