## Randomly Sort Set Of Numbers

May 8, 2012

I have a 1x20 array with the numbers 1 thru 20 inside. I want a piece of vba code to randomly sort them. I will do this in a loop to create different "starting arrays" for an optimization code. I just need to be able to randomize the beginning. How is this done? I cant have duplicates.

## Randomly Sorting List Of Numbers Into Different Permutations

Mar 1, 2014

with this problem (which I've been trying for weeks to solve).

I have a column ("C") of 640 numbers, which I need to randomly sort and place into the adjoining (ten thousand) columns. I then need to correlate each of these 10k columns with column "B".

The problem I have with the attached (which works for small numbers), is that when I increase the table size to 640 rows and anything more than a dozen or so columns, it takes forever to calculate and Excel often crashes.

## Choosing A Printer

Jun 6, 2007

I want the user to be able to choose a printer but not print at that time.

1. Store the active printer as a variable using application.activeprinter
2. Have a dialog box (the printers available) popup and have them choose one, then store that

3. I know how to do the rest, but I will have the word document print out with the selected printer, then use the application.activeprinter reset to the original one

## Top Five Choices - Choosing Rooms

Jun 18, 2014

I am trying to assign rooms to tenants. I would like to set up a function that reads a tenant's top 5 choices for a room, and looks up a column to see if the choice has already been selected before moving to the next choice. Then if all 5 choices have already been selected, the cell reads error.

This is how it would look : Excel Pic.jpg

## Choosing Cell With Minimum Value

Feb 15, 2009

I am working with a spreadsheet that has quite a few products and each product has a column for each vendor of that product with the price associated with that vendor. So, I have five columns total:

product, vendor 1 price, vendor 2 price, vendor 3 price, vendor 4 price. I want to have a 6th column that will show the preffered vendor, which of course is selected by the lowest price. I have been able to accomplish this by chaining IF statements together, but it is getting VERY cumbersome for more than 2 vendors.

Ideally, I would like to tell Excel to look at the 4 price cells, choose the lowest one, and return a column number, which I can then associate with a vendor.

## Choosing Worksheet Dependent On Value?

Nov 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up a consolidated spreadsheet with a number of tabs and a master sheet to work on. I want to set up this master so that I can type the sheet name into one box and in the next box it will use the sheetname I've just typed in to then pull the array off that sheet. I'm using this with VLOOKUP but when I try and type A1! in in the array section, it doesn't seem to like it.

## Choosing Specific Printer In Vba

Jun 16, 2007

In my program I want some labels to be printed on printer P661 (black/white) and other labels on printer P656 (color).

Q: is it possible to do this in vba for my code?

Sub PrintNACL_LABEL()
Dim oWord As Object
Dim sPath As String
Dim iCnt As Integer

sPath = ThisWorkbook.Path & Application.PathSeparator & "NACL_LABEL.doc"

iCnt = Val(InputBox("Hoeveel exemplaren?", "NACL_LABEL", 1))

If iCnt >= 1 Then

Set oWord = CreateObject(Class:="Word.Application")

With oWord.Documents.Open(sPath)
.PrintOut Background:=False, Copies:=iCnt
.Close False
End With

oWord.Quit False
End If

Set oWord = Nothing
End Sub

The specific printers in the network are:

Color ---> "\PlantijnP656 op Ne00:"
Black/white ---> "\plantijn2000oldP661 op Ne02:"

## Choosing Unique Entries

Oct 7, 2006

I'm trying to write an Excel program to calculate golf handicaps. In column A, I have 20 unique dates. In column B, I have corresponding 20 scores. In column C, I'm trying to create a corresponding notational mark, "*", indicating the 10 lowest scores that are also the oldest. However, I'm running into problems as I may have duplicate scores with different dates, i.e. 3/22/06 will have a score of 85 and will be the 10th lowest score, but 4/1/06 also has a score of 85.

## Choosing Values From One Sheet

Oct 18, 2006

I have attached a sample of what I am trying to do. What I want to do is to be able to go through each day sheet and choose the name and times from the list box's I've created and have it show up on the summary page to match. So if I'm scheduled to work on Wednesday at 9am... I want it to show up on the summary page under Wednesday at 9am that I am working, but If I am not working I want it to be just an X to show up.

## Different Output When Choosing From Dropdown Menu?

Dec 23, 2013

I'm looking for a way for excel to output data to a cell dependent on what I choose from a drop down menu.

For example. I have a drop down menu with 3 options. 1,2 and 3. What I want is that if I choose option 2, then in cell A2 (or whatever) would output the value of 2, say "2222". Or if I choose 1, then A2 would output the value of 1, say "12345".

How to open or Print a doc or pdf file from a combobox on a userForm

I have a folder full of doc files. I used a userform on which i put a combobox which contains those files' names and a cmd to open the file.

I managed to copy all the files names to the WorkSheet and listed them in the combobox.

@@@ I need a VBA code to do the following :

1- looking for the file name which matches the one i choose from the combobox
2- if there is a match, show " match" on a lable.
3- when i click the "open" cmd i created on the userform, it opens the file. or even print it and close it
4- prepare for another match.

## Choosing Cell Content By Date

Oct 24, 2008

I need to choose the content of a cell by the calendar date ( or system date). Before the date, I need the cell blank (or a 0 would be acceptable). On or after the specific date, I need to have a number appear in that cell. For example, what I need is: Before 10/20/2008, cell B5 should be blank. After this date cell B5 should be 8.

## Choosing A Crack Proof Password

Apr 3, 2009

If I have a very long password would this make unprotecting the sheet harder?

Or do the programs available on the net extract the data from else where - Making it pointless choosing a complicated password?

## Fill Data Automatically After Choosing Name

Aug 14, 2008

I'm trying to create an invoice with customer list, and the problem now is I'm trying to find a list-dependent data way to input my customer's address.

At the moment, all I can do is a dependent dropdowns from a sorted list (see method here). So it's kinda troublesome in such that my list (of customers) opens up a list for address that has only one option (since there's only one address for each customer).

I hope there's a method out there whereby I can have a list of customers, then select the customer I want, and the address of this particular customer will appear in another cell below automatically (without the need of selecting it in another list).

My address is actually split into three different cells - Address, Building & Postal Code.

## Search Function - Choosing And Creating Lookup

Jun 13, 2014

I'm currently trying to put together a search function of sort onto an excel document to look for entries of "Y" based on the choices in a drop down list to populate a list of names that have a "Y" next to them. I've searched the net and read up on IF, VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP commands but I can't quite string something together. An example of what I am trying to achieve is below;

Raw Data:
type1type2type3type4room1room2room3room4
AndyYNNNnYNY
BillYYNYYYYY
ChrisnYNYYYYY
DaveYNNNYYYY
EddyYNNNYYYY
FrankYYNYYNNN
GilesYYNYnYNY
HarveynYNNYNYN
IannYNYYYYY
JohnYYNYYYYN
KyleYYNYYYYY

Search drop downs:
Typetype1
Roomroom1

End result (based on the example of Type1 and Room1):
Bill
Dave
Eddy
Frank
John
Kyle

## Macro To Go To Specific Sheet Upon Choosing Option

## Choosing The Date With IF Function Having Other Functions Included

Jun 23, 2009

If we look at Produced date and TO Date in Sheet1. If the TO date is less than the Produced date then the TO date is the date to use. i.e. for May it will Say
Produced:, 22 Jun 2009 "From:","2009-05-01","To:","2009-05-31". So use "From:","2009-05-01","To:","2009-05-31"47 (because TO < Produced use TO )

However in June it might say Produced:, 22 Jun 2009 "From:","2009-06-01","To:","2009-06-30". So use "From:","2009-06-01","To:","2009-06-21" (because TO > Produced use Produced -1 ).I've already have some formulas in place. Look at the attached file, but I don't know how to set up the IF formula or any other.

## Choosing Between Multiple Access Queries In Excel

Jul 7, 2014

I have an excel sheet with a 'Home' and 'Data' page. I have imported data from an access query into the 'Data' page where I then push a button on the 'Home' page to run a macro on it.

## Control For Choosing Data Entry Field

Jan 15, 2008

I want to create a UI form to allow users to upload data. The data will be tabular (1 column per data field, one row per item). There will be more fields than I need, and the fields will not be named, so I need the users to select which column each field is in (with up to 20 fields). What do you think is the best control / combination of controls to use for this.

## Unhide/Hide Column When Choosing Dropdown List

Oct 5, 2009

## Choosing Data From Defined Work Source Range

Oct 30, 2008

My problem is in this defined range in "C30,D30,E30, F30 & G30" there is a possibility of more than one entry. If that is the case the entry would be in "C31,D31,E31, F31 & G31" If this is the case I need to pick the later which is "E31, F31 & G31" not

"C30,D30,E30, F30 & G30". How can I do that?

## Macro Print Invoice After Choosing Sheet From Dropdown List

May 1, 2014

with the following....In the first sheet of attached file I keep data regarding all invoice sheets next to the data sheet (not visible in this example). I like to print an invoice in all sheets (area H3-AI43) from a selected invoice sheet out of a drop-downlist in the "data"sheet. After printing the actual printdate must be placed in column F of the "data" sheet next to the sheet number. Would be great if this is possible! Maybe I'm not clear enough. The purpose is to print only 1 invoice from a selected sheet out of the drop-down list.....and not all invoices from all sheets!
