I have a worksheet that I use to monitor the progress of student interns. They are assigned 20 different tasks and recieve 5 points for each task they complete, for a possible total of 100. In my worksheet, I record their progress and maintain a running total. I do this by simply inserting the number "5" by each cell containing each task. Instead of inserting the value, what I'd prefer to do is simply place my cursor, click the mouse button, and have a formattable check mark appear with a hidden value of "5". I'm simply trying to create a snazzy interface. Do I want too much? Or is it actually possible to do this?
I use Excel XP 2002. I now can't copy /paste by using the right mouse button. It works perfectly in other MS products, on the net and on the desktop. l have checked my Tools/Options with other users, I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled the complete Excel package but the problem persists, even from start with a blank worksheet. I have also checked and there are no add-on ticked.
I'm trying to design a form, for various staff members to populate. I would like to ease their usage by putting a check mark in which ever cell they left click, also if they click a second time in the same cell it will undo the action.
I have not decided yet which which cells I am using, but is their some simple routine that could be used over & over again and all I would need to do would (hopefully) simply be to change the cell numbers in the routine to apply to that cell or range of cells.
I have a log that stores a list of different files in the first column. All of these files are worksheet hyperlinks (ie: =HYPERLINK("\USSS000010_PUBLIC5_COMMON15_PPA20066-032G6-032G.xls","06-032G")). If I click on any of these cells the file will open.
I am trying to open certain files from the list using VBA.
My question is Is there any way to simulate a mouse click, on the cell containing the hyperlink, using VBA?
In excel when you have filters on for all columns there is a little bitty square box with a little down arrow (like an upside down triangle) in the lower right corner of every cell in the top row (the header row) and I can't find a way to select one of those little itty bitty down arrows without using a mouse - -
Is there any way to select one of those little down arrows in the little filter box icon thingy with the keyboard?? I can't figure it out.
I just want to select the little arrow so that the filter dialog box opens - I am trying to create a keyboard macro that will use the 'BEGINS WITH' macro but when i record the macro it uses the same word for the "BEGINS WITH" parameter every time and I want it to use the word in the current clipboard - can't seem to write that.
way, using VBA code, to disable/enable individual shortcut menu items that are are made available with a right mouse button click. The following code disables the right mouse button completely but I would like to disable only a couple of options like the ' Cut' option.
The code to disable is below and to re-enable I just change False to True.
Dim cb As CommandBar i = 0 For Each cb In CommandBars If cb.Type = msoBarTypePopup Then cb.Enabled = False Next cb
I have an excel file with a column (I) which lists the total number of businesses in a different tab (DATA) that meet certain restrictions (these restrictions being listed in the same row in different cells). When the cell under coluimn "I" is double-clicked, it pulls the businesses from tab DATA that meet the restrictions for that row and shows them all in another tab.
I don't know the person that created this and was wondering if there is a way to figure out what is being done to make this happen? I looked in macros, but didn't see anything relating to this. Anyone know how this is done?
So you know, I have tried double-clicking other cells, but nothing happens - not even editing into the cell (altho this can be done from the toolbar up top).
I have a menu structure in place so when a user clicks a button, it opens a Userform as a menu. The only problem i have is that if the user doesnt want to use that menu, and clicks on the spreadsheet, it doesnt dissapear.
Is there any VBA code that anyone knows that when a user clicks on the spreadsheet, or even just clicks their mouse anywhere (ie other menus at the top, spreadsheet, desktop) like a mouseout code on HTML so the menu will dissapear?
A list box selection works fine on my computer but on a friends Windows Vista PC the following happens:
Selecting items near the top of the list works fine. 1/4 of way down a mouse click on an item selects the Next item. 1/2 of the way down in the list, the mouse click on an item selects the one 2 or 3 further down, etc., etc.
it would be possible to have text disappear after being displayed in Excel for a while.
My son and I played around with games (helping create a photographic memory, I told the youngster!) on the thing and until yesterday neither of us noticed that clicking the mouse anywhere (actually just clicking it) causes the screen to "freeze" while the code still happily erases the text in the background.
Hitting ESC allows the screen to cath up to the actual code EVEN THOUGH the ESC key is actually disabled from breaking the code.
I'm using code based on the following post: Add Borders To Cells Of Spreadsheet From Access. That code was developed for a relatively small recordest. I am using the same coding style to transfer a recordset that has roughly 2000 records in it. Since this is all taking place over a network there is a period of time (about 15-20 seconds) where Excel is open and the user is watching the cells get populated from Access. If, during that period of time when Excel is open, the user clicks in a cell during the population of data, it stops the process and causes an error on the Access end (Error 50290: Application-defined or object-defined error). Is there a way I can prevent user input (perhaps prevent signals from the keyboard and mouse) until after the data has been transferred? I know this is a long way to do a TransferSpreadsheet command but I like the way the column headers get formatted as well as the column sizes. I also think it's pretty cool to watch the data populate as it goes.
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
I am trying to take two random Mouse click selections and swap a set of ranges associated with the cells that are selected. For example if the user clicks on A1 it will resize(3,22) and store the selection as a variable to be swapped with another selection. Here is what I have so far but I keep getting a object required error on rngEmp1.
VB: Sub SwapGroup() If Selection.Cells.Count < 8 Then MsgBox "Please Select two Groups to swap. Press and hold 'Ctrl' in between your selections", , "Swap Groups"
I'm having a problem with one of my spreadsheets. Back when I initially created it, I copied and pasted some information from another (web-based) program, including a check box that was at the end of the data. For some reason, this check box does not behave like the ones that you insert from excel itself: I can't select it at all. it seems to be somewhat attached to the cells it's near, in that if I insert cells to its left, it moves over. However, that is the only way I have been able to affect it so far, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to delete it. It's not really disrupting anything, but it's a nuisance, and it's not very professional-looking.
I have an XY plot where the source X value data is a series of time values, each associated with a descriptive text cell. I would like to select a single point (obviously by mouse) and then execute a macro (right click preferred but a separate command button would be a suitable substitute for now) that will extract the X-value. I then plan to use that value to find within the source data the associated descriptive text cell and make a data label from that text. No clue where to start...the macro recorder is woefully deficient in this area.
I am trying to create an easy to use document that allows users to click a button to add or subtract to another cell in my document. I have the basic functionality working, but am now working on making this more fool proof.
Basically what my macro does now is when user doubleclicks C1, 1 is added to B1. When user doubleclicks D1, 1 is subtracted from D1.
What I'd like to do is to protect C1 and D1 so that they can only be clicked to add or subtract, and not clicked as to edit the individual cell content (C1 and D1). B1 should still be unprotected so that the user can manually enter a number.
If possible I'd also like to change the below macro so it works with single clicks instead of double clicks, but this is not essential.
My document consists of several worksheets, and right now I am using the macro on each individual worksheet. If there is any way of modifying the macro so it works with the entire workbook instead of having a copy with each worksheet, that would be nice as well.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal _ Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) If (Target.Row >= 1 And Target.Row
I would like to generate a blank email with a list of recipients (no more than 40) in the 'To' field. I would like to do this in a single click on a cell with the text 'newsletter group' in it (cell B17). The recipients email addresses are in the format of one complete email address per cell in a column starting at C17 (C17, C18, C19, etc...). I thought I had found a way to do this (using the hyperlink function I think, but can't quite remember)but it turned out you could only string together about 8 email address before the function stopped working.
Also just to be clear, I don't want to send the workbook to the recipients.
I am after a macro to do the following, my visual basic skills are very limited (non existant):- Look at the date in cell A1 on Sheet 'Live Report' and err 'remember it' Copy a range of cells from A3 to A10 on 'Live Report' Go to sheet 'Monthly Summary' and find the date that had been remembered previously (this date will be in column A on 'Monthly Summary' which will probably be a mixture of values and formulas). After the date has been found paste special and transpose the 'values only' copied range from 'Live Report' (A3 to A10) in column B on 'Monthly Summary' next to the date that has been found in Column A.
I have a macro that imputs data from an external database and puts it into a temporary worksheet. This data has 3 columns (ID, Date, Amount). I am then making another sheet which has X number of tables (one for each ID), with the years being the column headings, and months being the row headings. ie.
| ID X | +------+------+------+---> | | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 | | +------+------+------+--->
| ID Y | +------+------+------+---> | | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 | +------+------+------+------+---> | Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 | | +------+------+------+--->
Currently I have a few hidden fields for the DSUM Criteria. I start making the tables. And then filling in table based off of the month and year. Doing so I need 3 criteria: >= First Day of the Month <= Last Day of the Month = ID #
The problem is it takes Excel too long to fill in the 3 criteria fields, calculate the result, copy the result, and place it into the correct place on the table. Is there another way to get this data into the correct tables faster? Instead of using DSUM?
