Form: Textbox Navigation

Jul 4, 2009

I have a form set up with excel (2003) using vba. I'm doing a check to see if textbox1 is empty, if it is, a msgbox pops up with a warning that "textbox1 needs to be filled out". I click OK and the cursor goes to textbox2. I want the cursor to return to texbox1 without user intervention but can't figure out how. I'm using "Private Sub TextBox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)".
I know it can be done because I did it with vba Access, but I can't seem to find it using vba Excel.

Next And Previous Navigation Buttons?

Apr 4, 2012

I would like to have a "PREVIOUS" navigation button in a workbook that goes back to the previously activated worksheet, which may or may not be physically the previous worksheet in the workbook. In other words, if I go from Sheet #1, to Sheet #3, to Sheet #5, I'd like to return to Sheet #3 from Sheet #5 (rather then navigating back to Sheet #4).

"Open VB editor and double click 'Thisworkbook' and paste this code in on the right:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
lastsheet = Sh.Name
End Sub

Then right click 'ThisWorkbook' and insert module and paste this code in

Public lastsheet As String
Sub Select_Last()
End Sub

Whenever a user changes sheets, the name of the last sheet is now held in the variable 'Lastsheet' so if you assign a shortcut or button to the code then the last used sheet will be selected."

My problem is that when I want to assign the macro, I can't find macro name that looks anything like the above in the drop down list of Macro Names. how to assign the macro to a button?

Drop Down Navigation Query

Jul 29, 2008

What i want to do is create a drop down list in excel on a single sheet to navigate to a certain row of the worksheet.

I thought i coudl use data validation then use some code in a worksheet change event to skip to that section like this:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$D$1" Then
Select Case Target.Value
Case "Test1"
Case "Test2"
End Select
End If
End Sub

Problem is it wasnt exactly what i was looking for as i cant use an array in data validation so what i thought was a good idea was a bad one.

what i would like is a drop down list that when i select a heading within it, it naviagtes me to that row where my heading is but also makes that row the row scroll up so it is at the top of the page....Hope this makes sense.

my row numbers are 4, 13, 19, 28, 37, 43, 52 62, 65 and 75.

Sheet Navigation With Buttons

I'm going to be creating a workbook that contains a worksheet for each year. Within each worksheet, I will have a calendar format that contains a range for each month of the year (multiple columns and multiple rows). Is it possible to name areas based on month and then create a button or drop down list at the top that would allow users to select the month and the view would go to that area within the calendar?

Navigation Of Dynamic Table

Jul 24, 2007

I have a large table where rows are added by copying either the top row or the bottom row and adding it to the bottom of the table. Below is the coding I was hoping to use to jump from cell to cell within the rows using a hotkey assigned to the macro.

Is it possible to apply the following code in a way that copies the same hotkey targets from row to row?

In other words, a row copied from row 1 to row 2 would still have functioning targets of A2, D2, L2 and Q2.

Select Case ActiveCell.Address

Case Is = [A1].Address: [D1].Select
Case Is = [D1].Address: [L1].Select
Case Is = [L1].Address: [Q1].Select

Case Else: [A1].Select

End Select

Easy Navigation Of Multiple Sheets

Oct 2, 2007

I have a workbook with over 100 worksheets (all worksheet tabs are named). Since the tabs are not sorted in a numerical order (they are grouped by departments hence the numerical tab order does not apply), can I search for a particular worksheet tab using a search function? The CTRL F function doesnt allow searching for worksheet tabs. At the moment, I have to go through the tab names in order to find one particular tab.

Navigation Through Spreadsheet Using Shortcuts - Not Range Names

Sep 10, 2009

I currently have a navigation menu with 9 options however these options are based on Range names that I have set up.

The concern is that if someone deletes the cell that contains the range name, obviously that option in the navigation won't work, nor would you want it to.

However if someone re-enters a cell that you would want linked up with the navigation there's a lot more action involved.

What i'm looking for is a macro that can be used through a button, Idealy i'd like the macro to search through column "B" and look for key labels (ex: "Ground Floor", "1st Floor" "2nd Floor" etc.) and have each button set up for it's respective search data (ex. Ground button searches only "Ground Floor")

Excel 2010 :: Using Macros As Navigation Tool?

Feb 3, 2013

I have a 'dashboard' worksheet in 2010 and want to be able to click on a cell in this sheet and have it take me to the assigned worksheet. They are all in the same workbook. e.g if i click on Leadership i want it to take me to the Leadership tab, Skills to take me to the Skills tab etc The 'dashboard' will be the only viewable sheet in the workbook until one of the items on the page has been clicked.

I have a very basic understanding of macros and I'm not sure if this would work or if i should use a formula instead?

Easy Navigation To Specific Ranges Or Areas

Jul 1, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that lists values for different grid lines. On top of each set of data, I have labels each line "Line A", etc. I want to put in possibly a pull down menu at the top of the sheet that the user could use to jump to whichever line they were interested in viewing. For example, if the user needs data from Line L, they could select Line L from the drop down menu and the spreadsheet would jump down to that area.

Navigation Keys Quit Working After Workshee Change Macro

Mar 25, 2004

why my keyboard navigation keys (Tab and arrow keys) quit working after the code below executes? Other keyboard keys like alpha or numeric characters and Enter work but I can't move to another cell without clicking it. Selecting another ws, then returning to the "Master" ws fixes the problem. I tried activating Master near the end of the code but that didn't help. Master is not a protected sheet.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Column 7 Or Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(Target) Then Exit Sub
Dim NextRow As Long, MySheet As Worksheet
Set MySheet = Sheets(Target.Value)
NextRow = MySheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1
With MySheet
.Unprotect "1234"
Range(Cells(Target.Row, 1), Cells(Target.Row, 6)).Copy .Cells(NextRow, 1)
With .Cells(NextRow, 7).......................................................

Preventing Duplicate Entries

Dec 11, 2012

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

Preventing Unauthorised Changes To Code

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).

Preventing Insertion Of Rows

Jun 5, 2008

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
MsgBox ("Do Not Insert or Delete Rows")
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.

Preventing Copying Of Format

Jan 22, 2009

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?

Preventing UserForm From ReDisplaying

Oct 27, 2009

I have this code,

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
End If
If Target.Value = "Acid Test" Then
Sheet2.Visible = xlSheetVisible
Sheet1.Visible = xlSheetHidden
Application.Goto Sheet2.Range("A1"), _
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".

Preventing Value Increase When Filling

Jan 22, 2007

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.
