Restrict Input Of Zero

Jun 19, 2012

I'm trying to write a macro that will not allow a number to be zero. I have a macro that references a cell that if it is input to zero will create a loop that goes on forever. The thing is this cell will never have to be zero, so is there a way that I can write a macro that if this cell is zero, it gets reset to its previous value?

Excel 2007 :: Restrict Cell Input Based On Another Cell Value

Jan 22, 2013

I am working in both 2003 and 2007 Excel.

This is a simplified version of my worksheet:

I have two cells, A2 and B2. When I enter a numeric value into B2, I want it only allowed when certain text values are in A2. I.E.: Allow any value in B2, but only if A1 is either "SYDN or "ADEL".

Now using info found in an old post, I can achieve this with a combination of data validation and code:
=OR(A2="SYDN",A2="ADEL") for the validation and for the code:

[Code] ......

The only problem is I also need to reset B2 if A2 changes to invalid data as a result of some other input to that cell (A2). In other words if B2 is showing "1" already and A2 were to change from "SYDN" to say "LOND", then B2 needs to be cleared. If A2 changed to "ADEL" then it doesn't need to clear but it is ok if it does because it is fine to re-enter "1" into B2 again.

I have attempted to attach a sample worksheet : Xl0000003.xls‎

I've written a spreadsheet and am wondering if there is a way to permit data entry in a cell, contingent upon another cell being populated.

In simple terms, you can't enter data in cell X, until cell "Y" has been populated with something.

Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:


So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

How To Restrict A W/b To A Specific Computer

Oct 14, 2008

I've a workbook (XL 2003) test-1.xls, and I need to restrict it to a specific computer with ID: my-a1234567k

(shown under ControlPanel::System::Computer Name::Full computer name).

Is it possible to code such restriction in the w/b Open() event to prevent opening the w/b on a different computer?

My computers each has a different OS (Win 2000, Win XP Home, Win XP Prof ), different Excel version (XL 2000, 2003, 2007), etc., and the majority of my workbooks have been developed and would work only in certain environment (e.g.; in XL 2003 only, or XL 2007 only, ... ).

Restrict Ranges To X Entries

Aug 30, 2006

I am looking for a macro that would accept only one entry per selected ranges. It would be something like if there is one entry in range("b4:e4"), a message box would appear advising the user that only one entry is permitted in that range. It would give the option to delete the entry and to rekey the entry for that canditate.

I hope I am clear, if not let me know
1 entry in range("b4:e4"), per canditate
1 entry in range("f4:h4"), per canditate
1 entry in range("i4:l4") per canditate
1 entry in range ("m4:o4") per canditate
1 entry in range ("p4:r4") per canditate
1 entry in range ("s4:v4") per canditate

Restrict Calculations By Sheet

Dec 13, 2006

My 10 MB excel file has calculation mode always automatic. It has 100 worksheet. Only a few of these worksheets are enable for calculation, for performance optimization.

Therefore, I use the macro: Worksheets("sheet1").EnableCalculation = False
When needed, I do: Worksheets("sheet1").EnableCalculation = True

Unfortunately, from time to time, the calculation does not work. By chance I realize that by insterting a cell in this worksheet, the EnableCalculation became active. My problem is that I feel this is happening randomly, depending on worksheet, maybe depending on users or on sequences of entries.

Restrict Cell Value Macro

Dec 19, 2006

I have a range B1 to B4 for user to input value. Worksheet Change Event

However, the range B1 to B4 should not accept any value if the cell on the left hand side is empty.

If A1 is empty, B1 should not accept any value.
If A2 is empty, B2 should not accept any value.
If A3 is empty, B3 should not accept any value.

Below code checks for condition in A1 only.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B1:B4")) Is Nothing Then

If IsEmpty(Range("A1")) Then
MsgBox "Please input something under column A."
With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.EnableEvents = True
End With
Target.Offset(0, -1).Select
Exit Sub
End If

End If

End Sub

Eg, If I enter something in A1, B2 would accept a value which is not what I hope to achieve. It should be checking for cell in A2 whther it is empty.

Would be grateful for some advice on how to modify the code.

I attached a sample file for reference

Restrict Format For Sheet Name

Jun 30, 2007

Is there a way to force the inputs of a pop-up window to be a certain format? I have a macro that copies and renames a sheet based upon user inputs....but it only uses a pop-up window with dialogue only explaining that that is how they SHOULD name the sheet (DD-MM-YY) without using restricted characters. Moreover, it would be great if it would check the name against names already in the workbook to prevent an error for duplicate sheet names or force it to be whatever DD-MM-YY they input as DD-MM-YY(2) etc.

Sub CopyandRenameSummary()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

'Copies and Renames Summary
On Error Goto ErrorHandler
Dim Myinput
Myinput = InputBox("Enter the Count Date in the format DD-MM-YY (INCLUDING DASHES). You cannot use any of the following symbols: : / ? * [ ]. You cannot prepare more than one count sheet per date input.")

Input Text In Given Cell After Any Input In An Area

Feb 28, 2007

I am just starting to get my feet a little damp with VBA and I am trying to make a macro that will act whenever any text is entered in any cell within a 3x3 square. Whenever any text is entered in any of those cells I would like it to enter a text ( "X" ) in a cell which is specified by a cell in the spreadsheet (this cell will output which cell the macro should write the text in in this format "A:1" or "C:3"). How can I make the program act only in reaction to the user entering thier text, and also, how can I get the macro to read A:1 and enter the text into that specific cell? Any help would be so awesome, the book I have is really difficult to navigate.
