Feb 28, 2014

I have a workbook used for scheduling purposes and you can add hours to it by typing in D+1 or D-1, etc. I want to prevent this from working and just ignore the cell if the cell contents say "DC". I've tried to adjust my formula but haven't had any luck. I've attached an example worksheet with the formula for an easier understanding.

Text Entered Into One Cell Equals Number In Different Cell

Jun 24, 2013

So I am having trouble figuring out how to do multiple text to equal multiple numbers. For instance right now I use =IF(E9="JOHN DOE","07", but I would like to have it where IF E9 = John Doe the cell shows 07, but IF the E9 = Sam Doe I want the cell to show 08, and the same IF E9 = Pat Doe the cell shows 09 and so on.

Meaning is there a way to have multiple functions go to a cell dependent on what is entered into E9 for example. I just want to have a number come out in one cell if a certain name is entered in a different cell. I loooked at this post [URL]....which got me started,

Make Static Date Appear When Cell Has Text Entered?

Jan 19, 2014

Any way where is a list of cells (b3:b113) has text entered, or specific text entered, it will enter a static cell in the corresponding "d" column.

I know of CTRL + ; but i don't really know how to get it to work as a macro, can't find a forumla that enters the static date, and i don't want to make a macro to copy + paste special the date when it happens.

So all i should have to do is entered text in column b, then it will add a time stamp, when that text was entered, it doesn't have to update.

Like all i need is this, but instead of the "now()" function, it will have another function that doesn't automatically update?

=IF(ISBLANK(E5)=FALSE,NOW(),"")

Image Is Hyperlinked To A Cell With Specific Text Entered

Mar 18, 2008

Is there any way I can make it so an image is hyperlinked to a cell with specific text entered. After clicking on the image, the cell where the image is hyperlinked to changes text.

For example:

An image of a strawberry is hyperlinked to a cell which contains the word "strawberry".
After clicking on the strawberry image, the cell which contained the word "strawberry" now contains the word "strawberry1".

If you understand that, I would so love the help.

Auto-link To Another Worksheet When Text Is Entered In Cell

Dec 8, 2009

setting up a worksheet that forces a link to another worksheet when text is entered.

For instance, I will have several columns in the first worksheet (Sheet 1). For each entry, a tally ("X") will be added under the applicable columns. Most of the column headings are pretty straightforward. To keep things uncluttered, I want one of the columns to have an auto-link (?) feature so that when the user adds an X in this one column (we'll call it Column D), the user will then be auto-linked to another worksheet (Sheet 2) in the workbook. Sheet 2 will have room for more information regarding Column D, Sheet 1.

Change Font Of Text In One Cell Based On Information Entered In Another

Apr 28, 2008

if a macro or private macro is necessary, I would need basic instruction how to use those as well (I mentioned private macro as I understand they automatically run whenever worksheet info is changed, which I would like in this example.)

I'm simply trying to change fonts in cells based on the inputs of other cells. Obviously, using conditional formatting doesn't allow for this.

For my example, assume the word "MrExcel" is in cells D2, F2, H2, J2, L2, N2, P2 and R2. If I type different font names (Times New Roman, Arial, Bookman, etc.) in the cells to the immediate right of each word "MrExcel," -- cells E2, G2, I2, K2, M2, O2, Q2 and S2 -- I would like the "MrExcel" word in each corresponding cell changed to the corresponding font to the right. I would like the ability to do this for up to 15 different fonts. There will be many rows to this worksheet I need to use this process for.

Is this possible? I'm in a bit of a jam and have exhausted my knowledge of formulas in that they won't work in this case ... I'm assuming I need to delve into the unknown land (to me) of macros, private macros, or VBA.

Preventing Cell Change In A Table

Aug 4, 2014

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?

Preventing Cell Reference Deletion

Nov 10, 2008

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?

Searching Through A Worksheet For Text Or Value Entered In A Text Box

May 26, 2005

I am trying to search through an excel worksheet using the code below. I have a Form containg a text boxes and a command button (SearchTxt, FindCmd). The VBA program is able to search through XL but (1) It does not set the next value or text in a the worksheet active

(2) It only finds a value or text as an entire cell and not as a set of characters in a cell.

I tried to use Cells.Find method that solves the above problems, but i get an error message-Object variable not set (91) .

Private Sub FindCmd_Click()
Dim Rng1 As Variant

If SearchTxt.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please enter Vendor Number.", vbOKOnly, "Error"
End If

Set Rng1 = Range("A1:F10000").Find(what:=SearchTxt.Text, Lookat:=xlWhole, _
LookIn:=xlValues, SearchDirection:=xlNext)
If Rng1 Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "Cannot Find" & " " & SearchTxt.Text & ".", vbOKOnly, "Sorry"
Else
Rng1.Activate

Exit Sub
End If

How can I add a date stamp that will populate a field when text is entered into another cell but will not change every time I re-open the sheet. I have been using =if(B4="",NOW()) which changes each time though and as soon as text is entered it disappears. I want to capture the actual date that someone enters text into a cell and save that date in another cell???

Compile Error - Text Entered Too Large

The code I have (without splitting) is in the attached workbook (sheet1).

When you enter something into Column H, the value of =NOW() should appear in Column K.

The original code only went up to row 212 and it works fine. Now I need it to do the same up to row 411 but get the "Procedure too large" error.

Formula Works A Treat Except When Text Is Entered

Nov 10, 2008

The problem i have is with the sum offset function. The formula i use is to sum up the totals for each page of an accounts document. At the top of each page there is a column with " p " in it and i use that as the basis of the formula. This formula is entered in the bottom of every page to calculate the total for each page.

=SUM(OFFSET(F211,-(ROW(F211)-MATCH("*",$F$1:F210,1)-1),0,ROW(F211)-MATCH("*",$F$1:F210,1)-1,1))

This works all the time but when text is entered into column F (the column i'm adding up) it messes up with the formula. the formula will instead find the p but for a page 2/3 pages before the one i'm calculating on. This formula only faults when text is entered. Another thing; this excel sheet i'm working on is an output from a different computer program. it is outputted as csv file i think.

Like i said the formula works a treat except when text is entered. The obvious way around this not to enter text but that is not an ideal option. I cannot think of another way of calculating the total for each page although i'm sure another exists.

Userform Popup When Text Is Manually Entered

Aug 6, 2009

I am trying to get a user form to popup when text is manually entered into a certain cell. Right now the cell has a drop down in it that the user can select from a list of people. What I would like is that if the person is not in the dropdown list they can enter their name in the cell or select not in list and a user form will popup and ask them to enter their name and weight which will then be put into a different cell. This may be a complicated way to do this but the workbook is very complicated as is already and I cant figure out anything else to work.

Conditional Formatting Query: Changes Colour When Certain Text Is Entered

I have a column of cells that changes colour when certain text is entered into them, ie "TIME" will make the fill colour brown. However, when other text is entered into the cell alongside "TIME", the conditional formatting doesn't change the colour of the cell. How do i get around this so it picks up on the "TIME" text even when other text exists alongside it?

Text Search :: Find A Match When Date Entered

Jan 29, 2006

Here is what I have:

Column J is the date opened. Column T is the date closed. Of course,
column T will have no date if still open.
Column K and O may or may not have text.
Column AF6 has a date, mm/dd/yyyy, that is entered/changed depending on the search.

What I need is a formula in AF8 that will look at the date entered in AF6 and find a match in columns J and T. Then it will look to see if there is text in K and O. If so, populate AF8 with that text.

Adding Text Entered In Userform Combobox Into Dropdown List

Aug 1, 2012

I am not sure if this can be done easily but essentially what I have is a userform that fills out a form that will used by several different people and saved to a central location.

There is a blank combobox currently labeled "Supplier:" that each person fills out each time on the userform (there are no dropdowns yet).

What I am wanting to do is for every person who saves (I have coded the save button) with the "Supplier:" combobox filled out to save what they entered and input that into the combobox dropdown so when the next person uses the userform the entry the previous person entered would be in the combobox as an option to select.

Essentially, a combobox populates itself based on what previous users have entered into it.

Formula Or Code To Delete Cells If No Text Entered Inside Them

Jul 29, 2013

I am making a buiness card request form, which I have attached. On the Master Sheet (Sheet 1), the user enters in his/her personal data, such as his name address, phone number, etc. After he/she finished entering all the relevant data, Business Card Layout (Sheet 2) automatically populates and shows the user what their business card will look like.

Everything works fine, however I just realized that the contact information might vary from person to person. Right now, a person can enter 5 different contact information, but most of them will probably only choose four.

I wanted to know how to shift the cells down if the user does not fill out one of the contact information.

Excel 2003 :: Cell Value To Change If Date Is Entered In Different Cell?

Feb 21, 2014

I am using Excel 2003 at work.

New cases are entered on to the spreadsheet. The case remains open until a closure date is entered, at which point the case is closed. What I need is the following:

Cell A3 = should say "Open" if there is no value in cell Y3
Cell A3 = should say "Closed" if a date or any value is entered in cell Y3. Ideally it should only say "Closed" if a date is entered in format xx/xx/xx, but am flexible so that it says "Closed" if any data is input.

At the moment Cell A1 has a drop down list consisting of open and closed. I will remove this if it causes complication.
