Run CommandButton Code From Another Macro

I'm trying to loop through several objects and fire their "Click" events, but I'm not sure how to get it to work.

Below is an example of what I was trying to do. There are 3 objects with the name "CommandButton(1-3)".

Private Sub RunAll_Click()
Dim obj As Object
For i = 1 To 3
Set obj = UserForm1.Controls("CommandButton" & i)
Next i
End Sub

Macro Debugs When Run Via CommandButton
I have an unusual problem with my excel workbook. The workbook consists of 2 sheets, "WorksOrder" and "Data". In the WorksOrder sheet, the user enters some WorksOrder number and then hits a Commandbutton to retrieve the data from SQL and stores it in the "Data" sheet. It then goes and copies the values from the Data sheet. The problem occurs when it's trying to copy a cell value in Data into a WorksOrder cell. The error I get is Run-time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error

The weird thing is, when I'm stepping through the code, I don't get the error message and the code works. It only happens when the code is triggered from the Commandbutton. I've tracked the error to a variable which supposed to have a row number greater than zero but instead has a zero (0) value. My question is why isn't the function returning the value to the variable ThisRow? The code for copying the cell data is listed below:

Dim ThisRow As Long
Dim ThisWorksOrder As String
ThisWorksOrder = "123456"
ThisRow = FindRowNumber(ThisWorksOrder)
Worksheets("WorksOrder").Range("D1").Value = WorkSheets("Data").Range("H" & CStr(ThisRow).Value.............

VBA Macro Code Needed To Run The Code Contained Within A Cell
I have a macro that, when run, needs to read the contents of cell B5, and run the code that it contains.

Cell B5, for example, would contain the text:
Range("B13").Formula = "SUM(D12:D14)"

I need a macro to "execute this code", as if it were in the macro itself.

I have assigned the above to a variable, but am not sure how to execute it.


Dim the_calc
the_calc = Range("B5").value

Now, how do I run the_calc ?

Determine If Worksheet CommandButton Fired Event Code
When I click on a commandbutton20 on sheet1 it moves the user from sheet1 to sheet2, hides some columns & formats the height of a row in a range of cells I will refer to as Area X. On sheet 2 I have a target condition that if the user clicks on any part of Area X it move the cursor to cell C8. What I want to accomplish is that if commandbutton20 in clicked, the target condition is suspended. otherwise the target condition works. The code I wrote is as follows. What happens when I press F5 to execute it... a macro window pops up.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("a1:x3,e4:x6")) Is Nothing Then
If Worksheets(1).CommandButton20_Click() = True Then

Else: Range("c8").Select

Run Multiple Queries Macro Code
I am running 1,200 queries in succession in excel through a loop (visual basic). The problem is that, somewhere around loop 60, my computer grinds to a halt. I tried putting in a pause function and throwing in an autosave, to no avail. I think it has something to do with the memory, and somehow clearing it. Excel must be holding onto results from prior queries, and just runs out of memory after 60 or so.

Optimizing Macro To Run Faster - Timer Code
Here is exactly what was described:

A good place to start is to add some "timer code" in your macro. Add a small routine that saves a time value, and another routine that compares that saved value to the current time and displays the difference. At the beginning of a section of code you want to analyze, you call the first routine (which saves the start time), and then at the end of the section of code you call the second routine. In that way, you can determine which portions of your code are taking the longest time to execute. These are the code sections you then focus on, so you can figure out what they are doing that is taking so long.

This sounds like a great tool for optimization...

Run VBA Macro Code On Protected Worksheet
I have incorporated print/print-preview command buttons/VBA into a workbook with protected sheets. To enable these command buttons to function when the relevant sheet is protected, I have had to add VBA code to unprotect the sheet before generating the print preview, and then to protect it again afterwards. However, the code I have used (see below) prompts the user to enter the protection password, is there any code I can use where I can write the password into the code itself to unprotect the worksheet without the using having to enter the password?

'Unprotect Sheet

Pass Each Cell Value In Range To Cell & Run Macro Code

-Select Dept Name from the list
-Click a command button which is assigned to code that calculates and saves to a file
-Repeat for next report until all reports are generated

I would like to automate this process by producing all reports with a single command with the following functionality:

-The Dept Name needs to be populated in the specified cell containing the current drop down because it drive various vlookups and other formulas
-If possible, I would like to retain the drop down functionality as I would like to have the option of running an individual report or running the “batch”.

Code To Run Another Sub
I have several Sub macros in one workbook which will eventually be stored in the PERSONAL area so they will work on any workbook. The challenge I currently have, is that I need to run the first Sub as the first step of all the other Subs. I've tried recording a macro to do this, but it always refers to the workbook and sheet reference rather than eg 'Sub First' Is there a way I can run a sub inside another macro without having to copy the code (and therefore having to rename most of the variables as I use the same ones in many Sub, like Count / shtCurrent etc)?

Run Code On One Sheet While In Another
I need to run code that updates one sheet while I'm in another sheet (ie. from a form sheet).

I have 3 sheets - called 'Main', 'Chart Data - From Pivot' and 'Chart Pivot Table'

I have code that takes certain data from 'Chart Pivot Table' and copy/pastes it into 'Chart Data - From Pivot' .

If I am in the 'Chart Pivot Table' it works but if I'm in any other sheet it works incorrectly.

How do I get it to run from the Main sheet correctly.

Here is the
Sub mcrCopyToChartData()

Dim Rng As Range, Dn As Range, nRng As Range, c As Integer
Dim ws As Worksheet

' I added this 'set ws line...' to perhaps point to the correct sheet but
' it did not seem to do anything different.

Set ws = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Chart Pivot Table")

'this selects the current data from the 'chart pivot table'

Set Rng = Range(Range("A1"), Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).............

Why Creating Another Workbook When I Run This Code
I have a workbook with four worksheets named

The two sheets named FilteredDataFormat and arrayFormat exist strictly to preserve headers , and column widths.

So that for convenience sake I can clear my data without specifying a range that excludes the headers.
I simple clear the contents of the 'FilteredData' and 'array' then copy and paste 'arrayFormat' and 'FilteredDataFormat'.

Sort of an unconventional and lazy approach but I see no reason why this will not work.

Here is my original code and what happens is that excel creates another workbook for some reason unknown to me

ActiveX Combobox Code-run
I've created a workbook on whose main sheet there are three activex comboboxes. The first one contains a list of years, and the second one contains a list of months. The user selects the year, and it goes to its linked cell. The user then selects a month, and using the Combobox_Click event, should run a sequence of 7 macros (i.e. using the "call updateinformation1" macro, which is the first of the seven updateinformation macros).

The sequence of macros ran fine before I added the comboboxes. After adding the comboboxes, the final (7th) macro somehow goes back to the first macro and then causes a "ClearContents method of Range class failed" error on the "Selection.ClearContents" line. These are the first and seventh macros:

Sub updateinformation1()
'clears previous information to make way for new information
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False


I can't for the life of me figure out why it's looping back to the first macro instead of just stopping after the seventh. I have other workbooks that do something similar, and I don't have this problem. Am I missing something?

if I need to post all 7 macros?

Run Code On Cell Change
I am currently making a spreadsheet that will calculate the costs of products that my company makes. I have created the code that will add a line for each component of the product and fill in the details, but i want to set it so that it run's when i change the part number field in the sheet.

The only way i know to do this is using the worksheet_change event, but i will have more than one of these 'calculators' on one worksheet and the part number field will not always be the same cell.

I thought that an IF statement would work, as the cell next to the part number will always be the title "Parent". This is the code that i have tried but i keep getting run time error 1004 application-defined or object-defined error when the IF statement would return TRUE, when the IF statement returns FALSE (the cell to the left is NOT "Parent") the code exits, which is correct.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Offset(0, -1).Value = "Parent" Then
End If

Code Only Works Every Other Time I Run It
I am trying to programmatically select an item from a single selection listbox (i.e., set to fmMultiSelectSingle). The following code works properly only every other time I run it; the problem is extremely repeatable.

Const storeStartCell = "B5000"
Private Sub ListBox_CounterTOs_Click()
selectedTOName = CStr(Mid(Worksheets("Sheet1"). Range(storeStartCell).Offset(ListBox_CounterTOs.ListIndex, 0), 3, 3))
selectedTONumber = CInt(Mid(Worksheets("Sheet1").Range(storeStartCell).Offset(ListBox_CounterTOs.ListIndex, 0), 6, 4))
ListBox_TO_Name.Value = selectedTOName
ListBox_TO_Number.Value = selectedTONumber
End Sub

The times that it works, ListBox_TO_Name.Value is set to something like "ABC" and ListBox_TO_Number.Value is set to something like "1234". When the values get set properly, the associated click subroutines (e.g., ListBox_TO_Name_Click()) get called automatically when the value is set. The times that it doesn't work, they are both set to "" and the click subroutines do not get called. I also tried

myListbox.Selected(myIndex) = True

Userform: Run Code Under Another Event

Is there a way to run that code without duplicating it in the "CommandButton1_Click" subroutine?
