Radio Buttons To Behave Similar To The Forms Version Of The Button

Dec 17, 2009

I'm trying to create a form using radio buttons from the "Forms Tool Bar" and not sure I shouldn't be using the "Control Tool Bar"

I've got multiple buttons and wanted to group them so i used the "Group Box" from the Forms tool bar but now there's a box around the buttons (I've turned off Printing for the box) that gets in the way of other text on sheet. I did some searching and thought I read where you could also use the drawing tool bar and draw a rectangle around the buttons which would then let them operate independent of other groups of buttons but that doesn't seem to work so I'm guessing I imagined it. I also noticed that if you don't draw the "Group Box" around the hole radio button box, they don't work with others in the same "Group Box"

I'm not sure if I should use the buttons in the "Control Tool Bar" but I'm thinking I should so that I have the flexibility should I decide to do something different in the future. I'm thinking about using the buttons to hide a sheet as well as select the sheet for printing, but for now one hurdle at a time.

Lastly I tried looking up some information on how to get the "Control Tool Bar" radio button to behave similar to the "Forms" version of the button (i.e. click the button and it appears to alternate from other buttons in the group), however when I place my mouse over the button it selects it rather than letting me change it's state from true to false.

Multiple Macro Buttons (radio Buttons)?

Feb 10, 2012

I am trying to create a worksheet that has multiple radio buttons. Each radio button is linked to a Macro. I need there to be many buttons running down one side of the worksheet. Each button needs to perform a macro that is relevant to the cells in the same row that it is on.

Essentially what i am trying to do is make a macro that when the button is pressed copys data from H6 and paste it into B6. The button is situated above I6. I need a button for each row from 6 to 110.

While this macro is easy to create (i use the record button and then assign the macro to the button), i would have to do this 104 times and assign a new macro to each button.

Is there a quicker way?

Autofilter Based On Radio Buttons?

Feb 18, 2014

I need to filter data from row 87 downwards depending on the choices above. Some of the choices could be only one like in the measurement type. That I can take care of but what if the choice is more than one, it could be four and it is not fixed. Is that possible in autofilter? This is when they go to checkboxes where they may have many option. The mounting part is best example of many options. This is the part I can't incorporate to macro. It's somoething dynamic. I can't make my filter autoadjust. So essentially,I wanted to automatically edit the filtering based on those 10 criteria, which is also in ten different columns.Sample work.xlsm

Radio Buttons In Protected Sheet

Aug 6, 2008

I have a pair of radio buttons on an Excel 2007 sheet. I want the buttons to be clickable, but have the sheet protected.

Both are defined as unlocked. The Group containing the two buttons is also defined as unlocked.
But when I protect the sheet, one of the two buttons gets the pop-up saying the cell is protected - the other button is fine. I've even tried unlocking the cells behind the buttons, but it still pops up.

Selecting Radio Buttons Using A Macro

Oct 20, 2008

I created two radio buttons on a spreadsheet where a user can select
one button for Yes and the other for No. When I right click these
buttons, I notice the names (shown on the left hand side of the
formula bar) are:

Option Button 3 (for No)
Option Button 4 (for Yes)

I'd like to create a macro that automatically selects the Yes or No
button depending on a cell value in another tab. If the cell value is
1, the macro should select Yes. If the value is 0 the macro should
select No.

I tried running the macro below:

Sub testSelectYesOrNo()
If Not IsEmpty(Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Value) Then
Select Case Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Value
Case Is = 1
Sheets("Sheet1").OptionButton4 = True
Case Is = 0
Sheets("Sheet1").OptionButton3 = True
End Select
End If
End Sub

But when this runs I get a "Run-time error 438 Object doesn't support this property or method"

When I click debug, the text "Sheets("Sheet1").OptionButton4 = True"
was highlighted.

Using Enter To Select Radio Buttons Or Checkboxes?

Feb 14, 2012

just wondering if there's a way i can make the Radio buttons and check-boxes in my forms select-able by hitting enter? My form is quite long and it takes too much time for users to always have to grab the mouse and click the box, if they could just tab to the radio box or check box and hit enter to select it it would be awesome!

Group Radio Buttons & Link To Cells

Jul 31, 2007

I am trying to make a basic worksheet that will have radio buttons. I have searched around for about 2 hours and can not find any documentation on how exactly to create a buttons and make it do what I want. I have also tried F1 in Excel but that hasn't helped any either. I did stumble uppon a file called "Options.xls" when searching this forum but it does not explain how the buttons were made. The only thing i can figure out how to do is basically insert a button onto the document, and rename the label of the button that's about it. I basically want to create a group of (3) or so buttons. If button A is picked, cell D1 will display "x". If button B is picked, cell D1 will display "y", and so on. Is there a link to an example out there that shows how to create and use buttons?

Radio Buttons Macros Hyperlinks And Moving Back?

Sep 6, 2002

I'd like to insert some radio buttons in a worksheet that activate a hyperlink to a web page and then be able to go back to where I started (ie the radio button)

I can link the button to a macro which was a recording of clicking on a hyperlink. The trouble is when I hit the return arrow to return to the sheet from the web page I go back to the location of the hyperlink not where I started from.

Is there a way to do this with the buttons.

If I can rearrange the sheet to allow for more narrow columns I may be able to just use the hyperlink friendly name argument and do it that way but I'm not so sure I can insert more narrow columns without messing up the layout of the whole sheet. With a button I can float several of them over an area regardless of the width of the columns.

Pivot Table With Tick Boxes And Radio Buttons

Oct 18, 2006

every week i send out a pivot table to different project co-ordinators and would like a way of having simple option button so that they can have the data by "hours" or "costs" and can use tick boxes for the row fields they want to show, for example, "profession", "workstage"," name","cost rate". The page field will always be "Project" and the Column Field will always be "Period" and " Date"

I then want the pivot table to change automatically to their choices. I am pretty basic with VBA so may need explanantions too. It would save me sending out 10 versions of a pivot table all feeding off the same data! They could actually do something themselves! (i know they could drag the fileds they want into the areas they need them but trust me when i say they are not that advanced, they are good at ticking!!)

Buttons Code For Forms

Nov 15, 2008

I've been creating forms/questionnaires, customer satisfaction type tings with Excel after I discovered that the previous ones were done on paper and itís now my job to crunch the numbers for a report.

While I've been off learning how to do this in a suitable way for the office I work at, I've been neglecting the stack of papers from previous customer satisfaction surveys that are building up on my desk, about 200

So now rather than do what I think everyone else would do and make up the numbers. I thought I would just make a excel book with buttons for all the possible options on the survey and click them as I look through the papers.

So I need to learn how to make a button that, when clicked it would add a number to a cell. So if I clicked it 10 times, that cell would show 10.

so I can make the form with the buttons, what code/formula will I need to assign to the button to make it +1 to say, sheet2 A1?

Should I Use A Radio Button Or Checkbox

Feb 22, 2008

I'm making a worksheet where the user has the options to select "yes" or "no". I used active x radio buttons because I feel they are more flexible. The problem I'm running in to is, what happens if there is an "unknown"? I can't find a way to "deselect" a radio button?

I tried using 2 checkboxes using the following
Checkbox 1:

If CheckBox2.Value = True Then
CheckBox1.Value = False
End If


If CheckBox1.Value = True Then
CheckBox2.Value = False
End If

The problem with this is, you have to deselect one checkbox before you can select the other. It works, but itís a little more cumbersome then I was hoping. Is there a better solution?

To Ensure All Radio Button Groups Are Used Before Moving On.

Jan 7, 2010

I have created a survey in excel 2003. It has 70 questions on it and the user responds to the questions by clicking on a radio button. There are 4 radio buttons within a group box for each question and the user will select one of them.

At the end of 'sheet 1' with all these questions on, i have a button which the user presses to proceed to 'sheet 2'. When they press the button i want to ensure is that all questions have been answered ie: 1 of the radio buttons is selected for every question.

If one of the questions isnt answered then a pop up box will appear to tell the user they have unanswered questions and then the vba code will exit and the user stays on the question sheet (sheet 1). If all the questions are answered then the user will move to 'sheet 2'. (the reference cells for all the groups of radio buttons are within column G on sheet 1).
