One of the fields I want them to enter is a library branch and I have used a data vaslidation list to provide a dropdown box.
To make it act more like a windows drop down box I have hidden 7 cells above this box with the 7 possible entries. This means that with autocomplete, if they start typing in the cell it will autocomplete the entry for them.
This work fine, but if someone presses enter from the cell above my hidden rows, one of the hiddenn cells is selected! WHY!
I have no explanation for this behaviour, nothing like it has ever happened before, and I have no idea how to get rid of it.
I have a feeling the answer to this will be 'no' based on the searching I've done, but is it possible to allow formatting of rows/columns on a protected worksheet, yet prevent the user from unhiding some rows/columns I don't want them to see? I've allowed them to format rows/columns so they can "size" them to fit the text they enter, but that has opened up the ability for them to unhide columns. Using Shrink To Fit would be cumbersome due to the number of cells involved.
I have this excel file which has data in it. However, this data will come in everyday. Eg, A1 to A10 is QWE, A11 to A20 is RTY, A21 to 30 is UIO. But as I said earlier new data will come in everyday. For eg, it will become A1 to A15 is QWE, A16 to A30 is RTY and so and so forth.
I need to insert 2 rows after QWE, RTY, UIO. But as data will come in everyday, I cant standardise my columns to insert the 2 rows.
I have attached an example of what I need the macro for. I really need it to look at the columns with the names (Girth Weld, Weld) and the Joint length column to make its moves. Mainly the joint length. I think that would get me on track and give me some room to explore and learn what else I need to do. I love to try and figure things out but this is killing me!
VB: Sub LineUp() 'assumes data in order and concates unique Dim i1 As Long, i2 As Long, n1 As Long, n2 As Long Const StartRow As Long = 5
My F4 key (which I use constantly) works for every "repeat" function except for inserting rows or columns. I can repeat every other option EXCEPT inserting rows/columns. I just had Office 2007 uninstalled and had Office 2003 put back on my PC. My IT group can't figure it out.
I have a spreadsheet which contains data needing to be re-formatted into a suitable format for my database. So far I have been doing this by hand, but want to make it quicker as I have over 2000 lines to sort out. I am trying to write a macro that determines whether there is data in the column next to the active one (D2), and if there is counts how many columns there is data in. Once it has done this it needs to insert the same number of rows as there are columns, then copy the column data and transpose it into the empty rows. My macro seems to work at first, but it exits after around the 4th row, but I can't work out why.
Sub split_For_Database() Dim No_Of_Cells As Integer Dim Start_Cell As Range Dim Cell As Range Dim LastRow As Range Dim i As Integer Dim lRows As Long Set LastRow = Range("C65536").End(xlUp) i = 0 Set Start_Cell = Range("C2") Set Cell = Start_Cell Do While Start_Cell.Address <= LastRow.Address Do While Cell.Offset(0, 1) > 0 i = i + 1 Set Cell = Cell.Offset(0, 1) Loop...................................
I have a large data file. In column A is 8760 entries (every hour of every day of the year). Columns D & E are linked, Column D is the time and date whilst Column E is a parameter assocaied with that time and date.
There should also be 8760 entries in these columns, however there are some missing data lines in columns D & E. I would therefore like to move the rows in columns D & E so they match with the entries in column A. Can anyone help? I have a headache as i have over 70 files to complete this operation on.
I'm working in a workbook with several sheets, the first two collums of each sheet are =to the first sheet. some times I need to insert a line, but when I did that, I need to type again all formulas or drag the previous ones, and format again the cells. is there another way to do this?
When you put a label in a column, that is wider than the column, and you don't wrap it or shrink to fit, etc. it "spills" into adjacent columns so the whole label is displayed. In some cases this might be desirable, but in others not.
You can prevent it from spilling by putting a blank space into the next adjacent column -- that truncates the display of the label -- but clearly this is not a good solution.
Is there a way to prevent labels from doing this so that only the portion of the label that is in the cell where the label is entered is visible on the spreadsheet? Of course you can see the entire label by selecting the cell itself, and that's what I want to do without it spilling into other columns.
I have a sheet that uses Blocks of cells eg: A1:X10,A12:X22 etc to hold data/text etc.
I am filling colums A to V with data and Ranking and summing them in W & X, I don't need to show K, L M ...for example, until they are totally filled, so I hide them manually until needed.
Have a Macro to print "results" A1:X10,A12:X22 etc, and I set a "print area" or "print selected"...works fine to fit to 1x1 Page.
Problem: If I hide L, M, N etc, the macro runs fine but still uses the unhidden size of the selection to fit the page ie: I get A-B-C-D...-W-X as required, but the other half of the page is blank, because the size selected is for all including the hidden columns.
Q: How can I (Simply) print what's visable to 1x1 Page, fitting more in each time I unhide a column or two.?
I am instantiating Excel 2003 from vb.net and populating the spreadsheet from SQL. The workbook itself will be maintained even when the .Net program is inactive (so that the column headers are established and saved.) Is it possible to prevent the users from inserting columns within a certain range?
Dim rng As Range Dim i As Integer, counter As Integer
Set rng = Range("1:1")
i = 1
For counter = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
'If cell i in the range contains an "x", 'delete the column If rng.Cells(i) = "x" Then rng.Cells(i).EntireColumn.Delete Else i = i + 1 End If
My problem is that I have cells in other worksheets linked to the worksheet that is running this macro and everytime I run it, I get a handful of "#REF" errors. I think this problem might be solved if I could simply delete the contents of the column rather than deleting the entire column. How can I modify my code to do this?
By adapting a worksheet macro obtained previously via Ozgrid, I built a workbook that dynamically produces a database, in a worksheet titled “NumLtrWBS DB”, based on all possible combinations of what is listed in column A of three 3 worksheets titled: “ Num”, “Ltr” and “WBS, respectively.
The macro, named “NumLtrWBS", works wonderfully, until I add a row at the top of each list to contain a column header. The unchanged macro includes the column headers in the “produced” database. When I change the macro by altering the variable definitions to begin at A2 rather than A1, it still includes the column headers in the “produced” database. How should I change the macro so it doesn’t “produce” the column headers in the database worksheet?
I have formulae in cells to reference another sheet, but if the referenced cell is blank, then the new cell I made blank (using the IF function). The problem is, when I want to print, Excel wants to print all of the cells with entries in them - even the ones with formulae in them that are blank.
Is there any way to prevent the empty cells from printing?
I have a form on a SheetA wherein all cells are referencing the data in cells on SheetB. When I delete or add a row on SheetB, the cells in that row on SheetA read REF#. I need the row in SheetA to be added when I add it in SheetB and vice versa for when I delete a row.
I have one sheet that uses a very simple formula for copying certain values from one cell to another sheet “=VALUE(Sheet1!B5)”.
My problem is that rows have to be deleted in sheet1 as the information eventually becomes expired and the following is displayed in my cell in sheet 2 “=VALUE (Sheet1!#REF!)” Is there a work round this, to prevent the formula showing a #REF! Value.
Row 5 is replaced and the same formula has to be re-entered. Excel 97 used in our office unfortunately.
I have a large sheet that I am having some problems with. The information comes from our database. In column A I have a client code and other information over to column D. In columns E I have dates. These dates have comments that are associated with them entered in column F. The problem is that sometimes these comments wrap into the next cell below. I have done this in the past. But the problem is that in column G there are dates of when the action took place, the issue is that there might be 1 or 10 of these dates per client. And then in Column H there are comments as well that spill into the next cell below.
What I need is to have everything in the first line, the client code over to column E, Combining of the cells in column F that were broken over multiple cells, then in Column G the first date and its combined actions to the right. The next row might have no client code but might have another date in Column G and comments in column H.
This is really hard to explain what I am looking for exactly. I have attached a small file that has an example of what might be downloaded and then a sheet of what I need it to look like when it is done.
