Recording/Logging Cell Value When Value Changes

May 8, 2009

Is there a way to copy/transfer a cell value to an adjacent cell when the value of the cell changes. So if A1= 5, and it changes to 3, have B2 = 5 when this happens.

Cell Recording & Overwriting

Feb 5, 2007

cell A3 contains a drop down list of student names.

say, William is the 1st student listed on cell A1.

when William is selected his math grade shows up on cell B3 & his English grade on cell C3

I figured out how to make cells B3 & C3 change according to selected student from cell A3. All data comes from the Database Table, which is locked/unedittable.

Here is how my sheet looks like ....

Recording Previous Value In A Cell

Feb 23, 2003

I have a DDE-based worksheet, that is obtaining data from Townsend Analytics' RealTick Server software. One of my cells is a DDE formula that retrieves the current BID ask price, for a given stock.

When a new BID price comes in to my designated cell, I need to somehow capture the existing BID price, before this new one updates in the requisite cell. I want to be able to store this "old" value in another cell.

Unfortunately, there is no "pre-cell" event trapping. I've tried to work with the worksheet_change event, which passes an argument of the effected cells, but the cell value has already changed, by the time this event has been called.

This problem sounds simple, but I am at a loss for a solution. Does anybody out there in EXCEL-land have a solution ?

Recording Multiple Cell Values

Sep 22, 2012

Say i wanted to track the changes in a cell, i.e. if a number changes in a cell it records the new number in a new column. The following macro achieves this for one value; say type a value in a15, it records the number changes in column D;

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DestCell As Range
With Target
If .Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(.Cells, Me.Range("a15")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(.Value) Then Exit Sub
If IsError(.Value) Then Exit Sub


But what if need to track the value of 4 cell changes in different columns, and record these values into different colums of their own? So for example, if i had a value in a1, and wanted to paste the changes into D; if i had a value in a2, and wanted to paste the changes into E; if i had a value in b7, and wanted to paste/record the changes into F etc etc.

I thought about running the macro for each cell but it wont work, for example i tried;

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DestCell As Range
With Target
If .Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(.Cells, Me.Range("a1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If IsEmpty(.Value) Then Exit Sub
If IsError(.Value) Then Exit Sub

Recording Date And Time In A Cell When Another Cell Is Activated.

Nov 4, 2005

I would like to have people enter text in the cells in column A and record the Date and Time they did it in the same cells in column J.

I have tried (in cell J1) If(A1<>"", NOW(),"") but of course the problem is that it keeps updating to the present time. I tried using INT(NOW()) but that doesn't work

I know I could simply Copy and Paste Special over each cell in the J column but that seems terribly inelegant.

Recording Macro Using Cell References In Worksheet

Jan 18, 2007

I am working on this project that involves opening several Excel spreadsheets and copying the data into a new workbook. The problem is that the names of the various worksheets I want to copy change every day - it always reflects the date. I open 7 workbooks, go to the sheet named (for example)01.17.07, copy a static range and then paste it to a new workbook.

Is it possible to record a macro and use a cell reference in the destination workbook (the one I want to copy to) to tell it which worksheet to copy? So, for example, I would type 01.17.07 in cell A1 of the new workbook and the macro would look for the sheet named 01.17.07 when running? Then tomorrow, I could type 01.18.07 and it would know to look for a different sheet?

Recording Macro So That It Fills Next Blank Cell

Oct 29, 2013

I'm trying to record a macro that is using vlookups to get data from another data sheet, this data sheet will update each month - the old data moving back a column (so the new data is filled into the same column each time).

However, on the sheet where i am recording the macro, i need the data to fill in the next column each time.

I have recorded the below:

Sub Colourants()
' Colourants Macro
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-30

[Code] .......

How do I get it so it doesn't record in cell 'AK' all the time but the next empty column each time it's run (however, it will always run from row 3).

Recording Macro To Save Workbook Using Filename In Cell?

Aug 5, 2013

I'm trying to record a macro that calls up the saveas dialogue and uses a filename from a cell (it's the w/c date). I can start recording the macro, open the dialogue box and copy the contents of the cell but i can't get it to paste as the filname.

What I'm trying to achieve is to allow users of a muli-sheet workbook to be able to click on a 'save' button on any sheet and have the workbook save with a filename which includes the current week commencing date. This way all the weeks changes will be in just one file and from the following monday a new file will be started the the old one left alone as an archive.

Logging In A Website With Macros

Dec 12, 2008

I'm trying to automate some webscraping on a website that requires a login, and was wondering how I would do so using Macros with a specific username password somewhere in the spreadsheet, lets say B2, and C2 respectively. The website I'm trying to login is this; I think I have most of the scraping figured out; its just the log-in for now.

Automated User Logging

Oct 1, 2009

I keep a spreadsheet with the 50 or so wireless phones in our "lab". When someone checks them out, the rules are that they change the cell under Available to "NO" and add their user ID. When they return the device, they change the Available cell back to "YES". What I want is a log of who checked out the device, and when... which would be kept in "sheet 2".

I attached a small spreadsheet with the same columns and information you would see in the regular spread sheet. Sorry, I would rather have put it here, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

The spreadsheet has code which updates the "Counter" when someone checks out a device. Many thanks to the "Rocket Scientist" who helped me with that.

Logging Changes To A Worksheet Range

Oct 29, 2009

i have a spreadsheet with the following range in a worksheet called "Data".
The range is A3:CH9 where column A contains the data label and row 3contains a label for each month. So the data itself is in B4:CH9

Is it possible to set a macro that logs any changes to the data in the range
B4:CH9 and log that change in another worksheet (eg: "Log"). It would say who made the change (based on the USERNAME), what cell was changed, when it was changed and what the value was changed from and to.

Logging Live Data

Nov 30, 2008

I'd like to log live update data continuously,i.e. as the data in the cell changes. The problem I'm facing is that the data comes in at uneven intervals-- ranging from 30 to 50 ticks per second. So I can't really use a timer function. I need to use some function which saves the data as the cell value changes. So, for example, if cell A1 gets updated continuously, cell B1 could save the first value of A1 and then cell B2 could save the second value of cell A1-- and so forth.

How To Restrict Users From Logging More Than Once In Excel

Nov 7, 2011

I am doing an excel survey using forms. I want to restrict users from completing the survey more than once. i am using below code to input user login details in to a spreadsheet but i am not sure how to restrict them. I want a msgbox or some sort and then it closes the excel active workbook.

code to get username:
Sub GetName
Dim r As Range
Set r = Sheets("UserNames").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

r.Value = Environ("username")
r.Offset(0, 1).Value = Date
r.Offset(0, 2).Value = Time

End Sub

After looking through various forums i found code to highlight duplicates but not sure how this can be modified to suit my need.

Code to find duplicates:
Sub Dups()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Rng = Selection.Rows.Count

[Code] .......

Sumproduct - Number Of Divers Logging Dives

Jan 24, 2014

Building a Dive Record spreadsheet and Annual Statisics requirements to compute automatically. I have gotten this far:


Unfortuantely, I do not have a list of divers names for referencing. I am using these for testing purposes:

Column B Diver's Names: B. Dodson, L. Lloyd, D. Burch, C. Haley, J. Wilson, B.Dodson, B. Dodson Columns M through BO (types of dives): will have "X's" in them if a specific type of dive was made, Scientific, Working, Training, Non-duty... Shore, Boat, Ice, Cave, etc..

I need to know how many Divers made the type of dives. For example, if I make three dives in Saltwater, L. Lloyd makes one, and D. Burch make one, the answer needs to show 3 which is correct. If Dodson makes one, Haley makes one, and Wilson makes one, the number is 2 (actually 2.33). It works in some cases and not in others.

Macros Not Recording Properly

Oct 31, 2013

I have an excel file emailed to me everyday. It is a daily tracking of our fleet and I manipulate it before printing it and giving it to management. I dont know why when I try to record the macro and then use it it hides all columns.

The report has columns A-N. I hide B, F-G, I, M-N. When recording I hide multiple columns across.

I have done similar macros with other reports, no problem.

Paste Special When Recording

Mar 14, 2007

On my spreadsheet I want to move a column at the start of the day (as one column is todays values, the one previous is yesterdays). I have tried the following but it doesnt like it:-

Sub RQV()
Dim warn As Integer
warn = MsgBox("Do you wish to move RQV data to yesterday?", vbYesNoCancel)
Sheet1. Unprotect
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub

It comes out with a run time error 1004? It needs to be a paste special as I just want the values put in. I have tried recording a macro to see how the vba code works, but it doesnt give me the option to paste special for some reason and I presume this is why the error occurs.

Cleaning Up After Recording A Macro

May 15, 2007

I frequently use the record option to start off my macros. I realize this usually results in recorded events which are not absolutely necessary (recording a print macro is one that is full of excess line items). I then try and combine what I have recorded with what I have garnered from this wonderful website. If my spreadsheets are small - and I am not writing code to pass any inspections - is there a need to go back and clean up?

I am having trouble with a project for school. The instructions are: (In Worksheet 1) Type Your Name. Now, begin recording a Macro. Copy and Paste your name from Worksheet 1 to Worksheet 2. Fill in the background and edit the font. End.

Here is an example of the coding.

Application.CutCopyMode = False
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic

[Code] .....

Now, according to the instructions I should be able to run the Macro in any worksheet....but anytime I run the Macro in any other worksheet I just get a yellow block without my name there.
