I am trying to make a userform in my excel document that will allow the user to select (perhaps from a combo box) and delete a sheet they want. More sheets will be added and so the combo box or whatever should be able to reflect this. It should prevent them from deleting sheets I specify in the code as well. I've had a quick go doing this myself but I decided to start again as I had soo many problems. I think I just did it in a very long-winded fashion, so I would be interested to see what people come up with.
I have a workbook that contains 2 worksheets. The first worksheet contains all the data. The second sheet contains formulas that reference (absolute for all) the first sheet.
I run into problems (actually the users do) when the data set is updated with new information. Sometimes the users will delete all the data rows first and then copy the new data to the blank cells. When they do this, it messes up the formulas with #REF! error. Is there a way to prevent this? or is there a way to hard code the formulas so I don't get this error?
I'm working on a employee evaluation form. I'm using a Pass/Fail system. I have a cell designated for PASS & one for FAIL. In these cells, I would put "YES" if they passed, "YES" if they failed that section. How can I prevent someone from mistakingly entering Yes in both cells?
I've generated a sheet where, based on the total run hours of a generator set using a given fuel type, we can determine which engine to run on what fuel when. The problem I've run into is that if more than one engine has the same runtime, the chart returns just the lowest numbered engine and eliminates the remaining engine(s). What I'm trying to do is make it so that when this occurs, the suggested engines show up in numerical order. For example instead of 1, 1, and 1 showing up on the chart, something like 1, 2, and 5 will show when they all have 0 run hours. I've attached my chart below with some engines having the same runtimes. RunOrder.xlsx
Is it possible to prevent the VBA window from popping up if an error occurs when running a macro and the user then selects debug? I've locked the code for reading but I was still able to change the code and save it!
Basically, I want the code to be unchangeable unless done through a known password. What I don't want is some user who may accidently stumble upon the code and change it unwittingly (or voluntary).
Is it possible to prevent a user from being able to move a userform around the screen area (clicking and holding caption bar)? I am captureing a image and using Pixels coordinates on the capture and need the userform to stay in the center of the screen or the image will not be catptured. The StartupPosition is center of screen, tried
I would like to prevent the user from inserting rows. I know that ater versions of Excel have built in "Protection" features which would easily accomplish this. Unfortunately, our company uses Excel 2000.
I have keyed in a constant value in cell B100 ("bottom" of the practical range). I have tried ...
Private Sub Worksheet _Change (ByVal Target As Excel.Range) MsgBox "Range" & Target.Address & "Was Changed." If Range ("B100").Value = "" Then Application.Undo MsgBox ("Do Not Insert or Delete Rows") EndIf End Sub.
The problem with the above is: The "Change" macro does not seem to detect the insertion of rows. It does, however, detect the deletion of rows.
I have an Excel 2007 file that is a work of art. Users manually copy several rows and columns from a table on a web page and paste it into my Excel file. This turns my beautiful Rembrandt into a Jackson Pollack mess. The formating of my cells is replaced with the formating from the web page. Is it possible to make the Excel file ignore the formatting of the data being copied? As a default?
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("h15")) Is Nothing Then
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Value = "Ratio" Then If UF.Visible = False Then UF.Show End If Else If Target.Value = "Acid Test" Then Sheet2.Visible = xlSheetVisible Sheet1.Visible = xlSheetHidden Sheet2.Activate Application.Goto Sheet2.Range("A1"), _ Scroll:=True End If End If End If
The code works fine. However, if the target cell contains the word "Ratio", and the user opens the drop down menu in then cell and selects the work "Ratio" again, the userform displays. I only would like the userform to display if the cell went from being blank to "ratio" or from being another value to "ratio".
I am using Excel to maintain a database for a computer game I'm playing. One of the things I'm using it for is to keep track of wages that I'm paying in the game. I do this by keeping the total potential wages in one column. As I only pay an employee when I use him, I then copy the wages over to the next column, where the total actual wages per event is calculated. However, when I copy the value from one column to the next (using the lack cross on the bottom right corner of the cell to drag it to the next) the value sometimes increases by one each time.
This isn't a major annoyance, but I'd like to find a way to prevent it happening at all. Does anyone know how to stop the increase?
A related issue that I experience is that sometimes when I copy or input a value in these columns, it brings up an error message saying "Number Entered As Text". Is there any way I can prevent this? Both these issues occur apparently regardless of formatting, and only on some of the cells, so I don't know quite why there's any problem at all.
So I have this table... At the bottom of the table the Outer Fences. There is a column at the end of the table that calculates if the value in the row is outside the fences. I tried to do this by using the cell (say, H1500) in the if statement, but as I continued down the column I noticed that row 2 used H1500, row 3 used H1501, row 4 used H1502, and so on. So I have been just entering the new fence numbers as the data changes. Is there a way to go into the if statement and somehow "lock" the cell value so it doesn't change?
THis looks close to what I have been trying to find for months but what if I want to delete duplicates after pasting instead of making an error code? For instance, I have a list of names and addresses and I want to delete any entire row with a duplicate address.
How do I prevent or allow text to be entered into a Cell or not. Ie if cell A1 contains the word "Text" I want text to be able to be entered in A2, but if A1 contains "No Text" if want to prevent text being entered A2. Is this possible, if so how?
if it is possible to prevent a workbook from being saved other than by a macro (So no saves on Ctrl + S or File Saves). Basically, I want to allow users to use a template that I have set up, but I do not want to allow them to be able to save the document.
I have a workbook that is going to be used as an offline 'database', recording issues being worked on and all the necessary details e.g. time logged, user, problem type, comments etc. A lot of this will include vba for automation and validation etc.
This will then be exported in comma seperated .txt format. So I don't want anyone putting a comma in a normal field within Excel. I'm sure I remember a way of blocking certain character entry a few years back when I was working on a similar problem. However, time is getting the better of me so is anyone able to help save me some time and point me in the right direction? Trying to find a suitable search string for this question is proving tricky.
I've got a workbook with a several pivot tables. For convenience, I've deleted the pivot table source and left the pivots "self-standing". Problem is now when I try to refresh the workbook, I get a "Reference is not valid" error which prevents the workbook from updating.
I noticed that if I have data that trends downward a straight line trendline will suddenly create a negative vertical axis. But if my data is only positive, how would I prevent that negative vertical axis from appearing?
I am working on Excel 2000. I am creating a protected worksheet which will have conditional formatting and validation on manual input cells (formatted to light yellow). I want to make sure that people do not accidently forget and paste data into those cells. I read up on solutions from this thread; [url] and most of it seems to be more complex than what I needed (and I couldn't get it to work)
I copied some code from this website post [url] to my worksheet.
It works fine if the Validation criteria is set up simultaneously (i.e. it's all the same) but does not work if the columns have different validation criteria. How can I modify it to work under those conditions? I have included two workbooks, one in which the val critieria is identical (and it works) and one in which it varies between columns (and it doesn't work). I also noted that if I modify the one that doesn't work to make it homogenious, it still doesn't work unless I go back and highlight all and reformat that way.
I have an Excel 2007 template which is used for data entry. I want to disable cut, copy and paste functionality and have disabled shortcut keys via VBA and used CustomUI to leave a bare ribbon. However, a user can still add cut, copy and paste buttons to their quick access menu. Any way to prevent this?
I am building a template in Excel and I want an error message (or any message) to appear to the user if they select from a static drop-down the same option in column I as in column J (i.e. they have to pick something different in each case).
Issue is I can't exclude any options from the second validation because, essentially, it's the same list. So if, on one row, a person picks "Bill" in column I, they can't pick "Bill" in column J. However, if they have picked "James" in column I, they can pick "Bill" in column J.
Don't know if this is well explained enough but would appreciate any tips on this - I've tried messing about with validation, conditional formatting, putting an IF statement in the next column and so forth but I haven't found a method that isn't convaluted and easy for the user of the template...
