Multiple Applications Combined Into One Part Number With A List Of Applications In One Cell

Nov 28, 2013

If the admins or you would like to change or recommend a change, I am trying to figure out what the code would look like for cells B22:B28. I need it to count the number of occurrences of the part number in A4:A17 and then combine the applications from the corresponding cells in column F (F4:F170 into a single cell (B22:B28).

On sheet 2 I would manually copy/paste the list of part #s from sheet 1 and remove duplicates. The add the formula that I can't figure out into column 2.

I am trying to wirte a macro that will allow my users to import data from a HTML file locatedon their local hard drive. THe directory information will not change however I would like the opporutnity to "choose" the appropriate file prior to completing the macro. Do I need to construct a form first?

External Data Query Based On Cell Content..

Nov 30, 2009

I have a sheet which is running a a query against an external source, and coming back with a list of client data. Each row is an investment with it's own unique InvestmentID number and a ClientID number. Each client has their own unique ClientID, however may have multiple investments (InvestmentID) linked to their ClientID (does that make any sense?!).

Anyway, the query I have returns ALL investments. I know how to manually change this to only bring back certain client(s), however I want to be able to have the users (who don't know what a query is, yet alone to how to use/edit one) enter a ClientID into say, cell B2 and have the query reflect that ClientID. If they have to click a button to run a macro after entering the ClientID, so be it (although it'd be great if it actioned once they hit "Enter").

I know this is possible because I've used something similar before (that someone else created!). What I don't know is... if I had multiple "entry cells", could I have the query filter by two (or more?) ClientIDs? That is, they enter the first ClientID in B2 and the second ClientID in C2, the query then returns all information relating to B2 or C2

External Web Data Query Fails To Insert Table Data?

Jul 9, 2014

An external data web query points to a web site that offers a foreign exchange rate calculator. In my browser, I selected the specific currency pair I need and used the resulting url in the web query. The "New Web Query" pane resolves the url correctly and allows me to select the table data I want (the little yellow arrow turns to a green check mark). However, when I hit "Import" and select the target cell, the only data returned is the parameters from the url and an error msg (This web query returned no data...). How do I get the query to pass the parameters to the website correctly?

Running Multiple Applications

Apr 4, 2014

I am trying to run multiple applications. I can run one application i.e.

Application.Run (Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A8").Value) but not multiple i.e Application.Run (Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A8").Value) & Application.Run (Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A9").Value) at the same time.

I have also tried Application.Run (Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A8:A9").Value) but to no avail.

Use VBA To Count Open Dos Applications?

Dec 7, 2011

A VBA macro uses the Shell command to open several DOS command boxes. Each DOS command box is copying a file from one location to another. Since I am copying the files over a network, it is most efficient to copy the files in parallel (simultaneously) rather than sequentially. I would like to pause the program until all of the files are copied, i.e., until all of the DOS command boxes have closed. Is there a way to pause the program until all command boxes are complete?

Toggle Between Two Excel Applications

Apr 8, 2013

I have a macro that cycles every 5 minutes. I have tried everything I can to get this program to run while I modify a sheet in the workbook to no avail. I have however figured out that if I open up a separate excel application that my macro can continuously run without preventing me from modifying the other application. Now I need to figure out a way toggle between the two excel application windows if a condition is met. The basis of this is to allow production associates to create a schedule and modify it while a macro looks into the defect database and if a defect becomes too problematic, the macro interrupts the schedule to display the issue.

Change Focus Between Applications

Apr 12, 2007

I am using MS Word to create a list to go into Excel, it seems advantageous to do it this way because I'm using the Heading Outline Numbering feature of Word.

Presently my macro assumes the word document is closed. How do I modify the macro to:

1. check if the file is open?
2. if already open, switch the focus to word?
3. switch the focus back to excel?

Sub GetDataFromWordDoc()

Dim FileToOpen As String

FileToOpen = ThisWorkbook.Path & "5Whys.doc"
' MsgBox "Active sheet is " & ActiveSheet. Name ' My check
ActiveSheet.Range("WordClear").Select ' Existing data to remove

Set appWD = CreateObject("Word.Application")

' here I would like to check if the word file is open

appWD.Documents.Open Filename:=FileToOpen '

appWD.Visible = True

Range("WTarget").Select ' Single cell range to start paste
ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Text", Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:= _
'ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True

' At this point word in the fore, excel in the back,

End Sub

Best Practices For Structuring Customized Applications

Mar 5, 2008

so i'm building an application that'll allow users to manipulate records in Excel with just a GUI, using Userforms, Modules and Class Modules. it's all working but i'm feeling like i skipped a little on structuring it properly.

for example (from my Java work in college), you'd call just one object from the main method, which would create a GUI object, and create/manipulate instances of the different Classes when buttons are pushed. basically you one object whose main created other objects, who ran procedures, etc. what i'm hoping for is to make it as modular and easy to maintain as possible. would anyone have a good resource for optimising a medium-sized application? (the tips Excel/VBA Golden Rules. These Should NOT Be Optional were very good, by the way.)

Control Losing Focus Switching Applications

Jan 4, 2007

I'm using a VBA UserForm (ShowModal=False) as the front-end on a spreadsheet for logging purposes. Here's the progression of the problem:

1. I have the UserForm loaded and the cursor is in any given textbox/ combobox on the form.

2. I switch to another program, then come back to the UserForm.

3. The cursor no longer appears in whatever textbox/combobox I was in when I left the UserForm. If I type, nothing happens (I have to click the field again first, then type).

However, if I TAB, it will go to the next field in the Tab Order just fine. It seems that the control has "pseudo-focus"--it knows which field to tab to next, but the control won't accept input unless you click it. The odd thing is--this UserForm has a button which launches another "child" UserForm. That "child" UserForm does not have this problem.

VBA Shell Command To A Launch Applications On All Computers (no File Paths)

Apr 14, 2006

The VBA shell command is as follows:

programPath = "C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe" ' works
'programPath = "iexplore.exe" ' does not work
Shell programPath + " " + fileToLaunch, vbNormalFocus

but the drawback is that the invoked program (iexplore.exe, at least in my case) needs to have the FULL PATH to where the program exists = the "C:Program FilesInternet Explorer" which may or may not work on someone elses computer. This hardcoding will not work and is not transportable.

Is there a trick to find where the executing program lives? or launching it without the path?

Pass Parameter From Excel Through MS Query To MS Access Query

Nov 26, 2012

I have an MS Access query that contains a parameter. The parameter is a date field, and I have configured that in the Access query. If I run the query within the MS Access user interface, it prompts me for the paramater value as expected, and runs just fine. However, I want to connect to this query from within Excel as a data source.

I have created a connection to the Access file using ODBC from within Excel. In the MS Query window, I am merely selecting all of the fields resident in the MS Access query, and returning all values. In other words, there is no selection criteria in the MS Query. I have done this many times with Access queries that DO NOT contain a parameter, and everything works fine. However, in this instance, I need to pass a parameter through to MS Access in order for the query to run. At the moment, I get the "Too Few Paramaters...1 expected" error message. This makes sense, because I haven't figured out how to pass the paramater to MS Access.

Is there a way to structure this that does not involve VB code? If so, I'd love to know how. I have tried creating parameters in MS-Query with the same name, but although I get the prompt it doesn't connect with the Access query as the source for the parameter value.

If the solution requires using code, I'm good with VB Code in Excel...is there VB for Excel code that could make this happen?

Failing that, I guess there must be (I've seen a few in my search thus far) Access VB Code that can make this work. I'm very rusty using VB with Access, so this is my least favored solution. However, if this is the only option, keep in mind that I need to pass the paramater ultimately from a user who will initiate the process using Excel.

Query An Access Query With VBA Function

Jul 8, 2008

I'm trying to query a query in Access 2003, from Excel 2003.

The query in Access looks like:
AccessQuery: [SELECT VBAFunction(field1) FROM Table]

The query in Excel looks like:
ExcelQuery: [SELECT * FROM AccessQuery]

I use the following VBA code in Excel to excecute the query:

With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(cDataSheetName).QueryTables.Add(Connection:=strConnection, _
Destination:=ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(cDataSheetName).Range("A1"), Sql:=strQuery)
.RowNumbers = True
.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
iResultRowCount = .ResultRange.Rows.Count
End With
When I execute this code I get the error message 'SQL Syntax Error' (Error 1004). When I remove the VBA function from the query in Access, it all works fine.

External Data From The Web

Jul 8, 2014

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet that references data tables I have pulled from the internet, with the hopes that these tables will update as I refresh the data connections. I'm in the early stages of creating this spreadsheet right now, but whenever I try to refresh my data connections, it takes a tremendous amount of time. I have about 6 connections with 100 row lines total. Is this typical with data connections to the web? Is there a better way to do this?

How To Get External Data From...itself

Dec 3, 2008

I have some data in tabular form on a sheet. I want to represent this data on a different sheet, but have it be dynamically updated. I'm thinking that the smartest way would be to give the original data a named range, then do some sort of external data referencing to the source from Data - Import External Data. But this sounds kind of silly.

How do I do this? And no, I don't want to use pivot tables because I don't have statistics to populate in the cells...I just want to display the data as is.

Run External Programs With VBA

Oct 26, 2007

I'm wondering if it is a all possible to have a VBA macro call another program (like a Perl scripts, or a Python script) from within VBA?

I have no idea if this is possible. I know that people often write programs which call other programs, but would have no idea where to get started on this.

If it IS possible, can you tell me if it is is extremely complicated?

I have to have a VBA script read some complicated text files, and parse and extract information from them. Perl is so great at this, and I seem to get a headache trying to do any pattern searching and matching with VBA. If it was instead possible to write a Perl script, which is then run by VBA, that would make my life so much easier... :-)

Referencing External Workbooks?

Jun 6, 2014

I'm trying to set-up a costing system as follows:

Each job has it's own xls file, this is a list of manually input costs and a total cost at the bottom (total is the same Cell reference: G24) for all xls files. The xls file is named the same as the job - F0001, F0002 etc.

At the end of every month we then want to create a master list xls file for all jobs being invoiced that month. This is a list of all the jobs - F0001, F0002 etc. In Column A, and the corresponding cost totals in column B.

In the master file we want to be able to type in the job reference to column A (i.e. the file names of the single job files -F0001, F0002 etc) and have the corresponding total for that reference display automatically in Column B (i.e. Cell G24 from file F0001 will display in the master file cell B1, when 'F0001' is typed in cell A1).

Ideally the master file would display all the individual entries automatically, so no need to input the job references either - simply scanning the directory for the other files present and creating a list automatically in the master file, alternatively it can get the job reference from Cell A1 in the individual job files, instead of from the file name.

External References That Should Be Internal

Mar 1, 2007

I update files monthly and save them each month with a new name (eg. Jan, Feb, etc.).

In the file I have a reference from one tab to another tab within the same file. So every time I re-save this file with a new name, it should still reference the cell in the other tab - same file.

BUT on 2 occasions this reference changed to an "external" reference to the previous month's file.

I've been doing this every month for over 2 years and this problem has only happened 2 times. I know others that have experienced this, but nobody knows what caused it.

Does anyone know what would cause this? The biggest problem is that I may not notice this has happened for a long time.

One other thing I might add. I use an older version of Excel (2000). I share these files with other people who may have newer versions (I'm not sure who has what). Can sharing these files with others over a network system have something to do with this? Can opening "read only" when someone else is in the file and then saving as a copy do this?
