I'm writing a couple of macros which require selection of a range. The user could either select the range before executing the macro or if range has not been pre-selected, an inputbox should pop-up through which the user can select required range.
Using MS Query in Excel, I've created a simple query that pulls its records from an SQL dbase. Here's the statement:
SELECT uvVisit.FacilityListName, uvVisit.DoctorListName, uvVisit.Date, uvVisit.PatientVisitId, uvVisit.PatientLast, uvVisit.PatientFirst FROM CPS.dbo.uvVisit uvVisit WHERE (uvVisit.Date Between ? And ?) ORDER BY uvVisit.FacilityListName
The query runs fine and prompts the user to enter beginning & ending date ranges for the visit date when executed. So far...so good...but, this requires me to manually insert a line in Excel above the 1st record and type in something like: "For Date Range: MM/DD/YYY - MM/DD/YY" to denote the date range that the qualified records fall into (something the user wants to see).
However, I'd like to find a way automatically preface and display in the report's output (perhaps as the 1st line of the report in Excel??) something similar to what I'm already typing, and have it pull the beginning and ending MM/DD/YY values from those supplied by the user in the parameter.
I'm trying to develop a macro that will run through a list of names and cities and will put the output next to them. Here's how my data is laid out:
First Name Last Name City
Bob Smith New York
Joe Blow Seattle
To the right of each person is where I want the query output to go. I sort of pieced together a macro but I get stuck on the query part - I don't know how to query multiple rows. I thought of just running the query for each row, but that will probably be too labor intensive for the computer running a query each time.
Using VBA, I am importing data from Access (Access2007) into Excel. The code that I use works as required but I need to refine it so that I can filter for the records that I need to import. I can import ALL records. I can import selected records by manually changing my SQL query. I would like to reference an array of values or a range of cells so that I do not need to manually change my query every time I want to run it.
This code gets all records for "Jeff" and "Bob" from the Access database. I need to query about 100 names at a time so manually inputting them is going to take forever. How I can make it work?
By using an array: [Code]....... or by using a range of cells:
I have a spreadsheet with several worksheets in it. The main sheet contains a calendar view that is fed from a separate sheet with holiday date ranges. This aspect works well and displays correctly in the main calendar view.
I am now adding in additional conditional formatting to each cell. As a first example i want the calendar to display bank holiday days by colouring the cell (lets say black). I am using conditional formatting only and have used the following formula;
Holidays is a named range, separate sheet (A2:A13). C6 is the date value field (runs C6 through AN6 - perpetual calendar)
It evaluates the cell (i can see, TRUE,FALSE,FALSE,FALSE,...) and will only shade the cell if the date value field is equal to the first date in the Holidays named range. if this is not the case (FALSE,TRUE,FALSE,FALSE,...) the field value is set to "0".
how i can change this, entered as conditional format formula, to set the cell to "1" if any are evaluated as TRUE regardless of where they come in the name named range.
I want to additionally add in, from separate worksheets in the same workbook, face to face meetings and conference calls. I have assumed that i will use the same method to do this as Bank Holidays.
What I have is a database of measurements taken, where X-axis is distance across a surface and Y-axis is measuring deformation to that surface. Each measurement is actually a group of data points from one sweep across the surface on a certain day, resulting in a line plot for that group. What I'm trying to do is create a "checksheet" so that you can overlay plots from multiple dates on the same grid to compare how the surface has changed with each measurement. I've got the checksheet part working properly, and I can toggle things on/off as I like as long as my data doesn't change.
The rub is that this data is gathered via query, and each measurement doesn't have the same # of data points. If I update the query to look at a different date range, the plots are now off because the old data range doesn't match the new data.
Is there any way of changing the data range when a query gets updated, or a way to tie it to a function?
Is there a way to put a floating date range in the criteria much the same as can be done in excel ie greater than Today() but less than Today()+3? I don't want to keep going in and adjusting the query if I don't have to and if I don't keep the range tight there is too much data.
I am trying to count the occurences of combinations within a range defined by contiguous cell values in one column. My problem lies with setting the value of variables that are queried within the defined range. My macro should;
1)Set ComboValue1 & ComboValue2 values to A1 & B1 cells values respectively 2)define range to be searched by how many contiguous values there are in column D 3)search column E for 2 figure combination (defined by A1 & B1). If present increment counter by 1 and add to column C (to be visible in worksheet). If no match carry on 4)define new range by next set of contiguous values in column C 5) step 3 6)when all possible contiguous ranges defined and searched from column c, perform again on next combination down columns A & B with refreshed occurence counter 7)finish when all combinations are searched for
Sub CountComboOccurence() Dim ListCounter As String Dim ProgCounter As String Dim Counter As Integer Dim ComboValue1 As String Dim ComboValue2 As String Dim Rng As Range Application. ScreenUpdating = False ListCounter = 0 ProgCounter = 0 Counter = 0 ComboValue1 = 0.......................
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.
Need the query parameters which takes the date from the cell into the query. How should I modify my query if it needs to take the date from a cell?? The bold one date should be picked from one of the cell in sheet 2.
My query is this WEB 1 http://fc-web-phl1-101.phl1:8090/gp/...runReport.y=12
I have been working on some ODBC queries in Excel 2010.
First, I recorded them using Excel's Record Macro function, to get an idea of what sort of source data I would need. Then, I rewrote them into something a little more intelligible.
Pulling out all the sensitive info, I want to know how to add the .ListObject.DisplayName property back onto the results of the query. I tried doing it intuitively, but it didn't work. It was in there when I recorded the macro, but I can't seem to figure out where to put it back into the re-written code. Other parts of the code depend on the results of the query being a 'named field'.
Also, where would I find out what all that stuff in Cnnect means? DBA, APA, EXC, FEN, etc are all just assignments, and I might like to change some to make this run a bit quicker, if I knew what they meant.
I have a csv file on another drive on the network that i need to query. I believe that ms query would be the best way. I know that a DSN needs to be setup but this macro will be used by various users who wont know how to do that. thus I would like to create one via VBA every time the task needs to be run. I haven't a clue how to do this and i need it to be explained to me in general terms with words of one syllable!
I am using Selection.ClearContents command to clear data from column F and G. I know the last row as 230 but the starting row is the first empty cell which I find using Do While loop in range F31 to F230. The variable that stores the first empty cell number is 'r'.
I am filtering a list in Column H and depending on what criteria I filter on I need to be able to select only what I have actually filtered for. I am using the code below to find the lower right corner of my range that I'm trying to select and this works great.
I'm looking to go to every 8th cell in a column when I hit the enter key. I was thinking of selecting a small range say from A2 which is zero to A10 which would also be zero then A18 which is zero. The reason being I have a lot of figures to put in to each zero cell then I select "Series" to fill the cells in-between with the incremental figures between the two zeros which would be the difference between the two zero figures.
I was making a simple spreadsheet as I'm taking practice tests for some IT certifications and the spreadsheet I was making was to chart out my progress.
I had a range of scores in some cells and one of the formulas I used so that I didnt have errors in the sheet like div/0 went like the following:
=if(b5:b50="","",sum(b5:b50)) this seemed to work really well for the one section, however I tried to get a little fancy as always and I think I messed something up. Beneath that I tried to separate each practice test with the same sort of formula resulting something like the following:
=if(b30:b40="","",sum(b30:b40)) this however just returned an error #value. I dont understand why the first formula worked and the second didnt. Then again, I'm not really an excel guru, back in college I was really good with it but I dont really remember much.
1) I have column labels, and row labels on one worksheet which I input into a function.
2) These inputs should be matched with column and row labels, and then input into the index function to get a certain cell - let's call it the event cell.
I'm ok with this part. Then:
3) I would like to collect a one column array. The number of cells in this array should depend on an input from a cell in the worksheet, and the final cell in the array should be the column label of the column where I am inputing the formula.
4) The array from 3) should go into the slope function.
5) Then I want to get the second array for the slope function from a fixed column, but the same rows as in the variable first array, and this should input into the function.
I have a spreadsheet with data organized into columns in sets of two - the first column is an X value (Pixel number) and the second column is the Y value (pixel density). I'm trying to make a macro that will select the first set of columns, chart it, move the chart to the next sheet, then select the next two columns of data, chart them and move the chart to the next sheet etc. I've gotten as far as having it make the chart and move it, but I can't seem to make it select the next set of columns - I've been trying different things for a couple days now. Code:
I have to run reports every week where I show the number of days items are pending some sort of action. I use an autofill action in a macro but the number of rows changes every week. Here is the current section of my macro that I use. I just input a row number that I know will not exceed the number of rows required by my data (12900). What can I replace this with (Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("J2:J12900") so it will only fill the number of rows current filled in in either row I or K?
Im having some problems with range selection in macros. Basically, what the macro does is Copy / Paste as Values in differet sectors of an active worksheet, so this is the code for each range of cells that I need to copy paste:
The problem with this code, is that because it specifies EXACTLY which range to select, if I add a row before that range the macro will be now selecting an incorrect range.
For example, say I have a value on cell A5, and the macro is set up to copy/paste that cell. Later on, I decide to add a row in A3, so the value I would need to copy/paste will now be in A6, but the macro will still execute on A5 (incorrect, as it should now execute in A6, and that is what I have to manually correct each time).
I am looking to run a marco for a selection range, and the selection range could vary in size. Using the Macro recorded (whilst turning on the relative reference) the Macro runs for a defined number of cells. I would like to run certain Macro, for different ranges of cells.
