Run Macro While In Cell Edit Mode ..
In an Excel worksheet all command buttons are disabled while a cell is in edit mode or while the cursor is active in the formula bar. Is there a way in VBA to save the cell's contents and execute a command button if clicked while a cell is in edit mode?

Run Macro While In Cell Edit Mode
I have Form Button in Excel Sheet which Calculates by reading other excel sheet. Now the problem is when user enters data in a Cell by double Clicking on it and after entering data if he directly clicks on a button then Macro that needs to be invoked is NOT executed. The only way is that he needs to press EnterKey OR Click on any other Cell and then click on the button.

Rum Macro While Cell In Edit Mode
I have users who don't press Enter (or move to a new cell) after entering text. They then try to click a form button - and of course - the macro does not run.
Is there an xl/vba solution to force them out of edit mode before clicking the button?
Macro To Paste While In Edit Mode
Is it possible to write code to paste a string in text select (double click in a cell) mode rather than cell select (single click a cell) mode? I need a string to paste in as if someone had double clicked then hit paste (so as to utilize special delimiters.) Here is the code that reads the workbook, finds the next available row, then pastes:
Dim strCopyToLog As String
strCopyToLog = Range("Q2")
ActiveCell.Value = strCopyToLog
Cell Comments - Not Going Into Edit Mode
I am using a lot of double click routines in my sheet. In order for the sheet to be more user friendly I have used the comments of cells to tell the user what to do. For instance "Double click to choose type" or some such. Everything works great except that after the user selects what they want from the userform and it hides and the focus comes back to the sheet, the comment is in edit mode. While this is not horrible it is not as nice as I would like. I have tried to have my code send the active cell to another cell and then back, but that doesn't seem to work. Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the comments from going into edit mode?
Position Insertion Point In Cell While In Edit Mode
When a user clicks a cell in Column A, VBA will enter the date in the cell (in the form MMDDYY) and will position the insertion pointer at the end of the date. The user can then enter a four digit number following the MMDDYY. In this worksheet, Column A holds a transaction number, which is always in the form MMDDYYXXXX. I am trying to save the user the trouble of entering the MMDDYY, since it will always be today's date.
Disable Menu Control Edit Mode
I would like my custom menus to act like builtin menus - specifically I would like them to be disabled (grayed out or even entirely removed) when the application is in Cell Edit Mode (I cant believe I am the first to ask about this but I cant find the answer elsewhere).
It sure seems confusing to offer users access to a seemingly active command when it does not run (in edit mode I mean).
I send huge lumps of Karma to any willing to share ideas or solutions.
How To Create A Macro To Edit Cell Content
I'm trying to create a macro which will edit the content of a cell and update. I'm just using the "Record New Macro" option in tools.
It doesn't seem to perform the F2 edit function within the macro.
I'm sure this has been discussed previously, but I can't get the search function to work for me.
Macro For Copying Formulas & Edit In New Cell
I need to be able to copy a formula from a row that is 180 rows before the current cell.
I then need to edit the formula so that the rows all start at 6. then i need to change the column references.
The formula that I am editing looks like this after it has been copied from before:
=IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$d870="m",IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$n870="a",'Entry Form Portrait'!$a870,""),"")
So I need d870 to be changed to d6, the n870 to be changed to o6 (current column +1), the a870 to be changed to a6.
Then this resultant formula to be copied to the next column and a6 changed to b6, then copied to next column again and b6 changed to f6.
Then all 3 columns to be copied (or autofilled) down 105 rows.
I tried to do it by recording the macro, however it only works for the first time that i use it, and then just keeps repeating in the same place. I need it to use the cell i have selected as the starting point.
Macro To Edit A Cell & Convert Formula To Text
Have a macro that copies a formula from each of 100 workbooks to a new workbook. I want to display these formulas as text and want a macro or someway to display these cells as text. I have tried to record a macro that presses the F2 key, the home key and the apostrophe. This works for the one cell but provides the following macro that does not work for anyother cell.
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"'=VLOOKUP($A$30,'G:Variance Reports FY07[Salary Dist Var Repts_Cur Mth.xls]end of July'!$E$76:$G$200,3)"
Macro Only Runs In Step-Thru Mode
I have a peice of code which opens up a number of Workbooks (200+) and updates a series of control tables in each. Given our security etc environment, links and external references etc are not possible. The target files must all be standalone and self-sufficient.
The problem I have is that when I run the procedure in question in the usual way, the procedure simply terminates after the first file is opened. No error messages, no distress - it just stops. I have put debugging calls all around the "Workbook.Open" call, and it simply doesn't make it out of the call. There is no Auto_Open code in the workbooks being opened and (as I indicated above) no external links, references or function calls.
What's weird is that if I step through the procedure in the Command Debugger, everything works fine. Even weider, if I complete step-by-step processing on the first target file then I can press "Play" and the code will complete execution and process all the remaining files without error.
I have rebuilt/recreated/re-ordered the target files and even moved them to a different volume.
If anyone has seen this before, or has any idea what the cause may be, or even just a wild idea, I'd love to hear it.
Code segment attached.
'*** Process each file in the list provided
For intCounter = 1 To intWBS_Files
Call Debug_Msg("Opening WBS File")
Application.EnableEvents = False
Set wbkThis_WkBk = Application.Workbooks.Open(strWBS_Files(intCounter), 0, False)
Application.EnableEvents = True
Call Debug_Msg(("Opened WBS File:" & Chr(13) & strWBS_Files(intCounter)))
If (wbkThis_WkBk Is Nothing) Then
Call Write_Error_Record("File Open Failed", strWBS_Files(intCounter))
How Do I Create A Macro To Work In Shared Mode
Ive got a problem with a work book im working on at the moment, my company has various different documents created in excel, like a price list, cost price list & stock levels (all Independant) I have had the idea to join them all into a single shared workbook using an idea I found and modified over a year ago on this site, that had the promise of allowing multiple users to see the nessesary parts of the same document. the advantage of this being any new parts or prices or suppliers added would update all users at once. So ive got this workbook that when you open you get asked for a username & password this then hides/unhides, protects or unprotects to suit the users needs. This works great when unshared but when I share it the login box wont display
The Administrator username is jamie and the password is joshua

Run Macro On Double Cell Click If Cell Part Of Named Range
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
Pass Each Cell Value In Range To Cell & Run Macro Code
I have workbook template that I use to generate reports from a list of depts. This list is contained in a drop down cell that is a named range in a different worksheet. My current process is as follows:
-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”.

Run Macro When Cell Selected
I've seen plenty of code for running a macro when various events occur, but how do I run a macro when a cell is simply selected? I have a calendar Macro, and there are two cells that need date input. I want the user to select the cell, and the calendar to pop up. Macro for the calendar works correctly, just need the code for the activation upon cell selection.
Run A Macro By Clicking A Cell
I would like to run a macro by clicking a cell. I don't want a toolbar button/menu item and Hyperlinks don't work. Can this be done?
More info: My macro selects the current row in Sheet A and moves it (cut & Paste) to Sheet B in the workbook. The macro then goes back to Sheet A and deletes the now blank row.
Macro To Run When A Cell Changes On Different Sheet
I am tring to write a macro that will hide certain columns on sheet2 based on the value of cell a1 of sheet1. I have been able to get it to work when the input cell is in the same sheet. What I need for example is if someone enters 1 into cell a1 on sheet1 then on sheet2 the macro will hide column c to f. If they then enter 2 into cell a1 of sheet1 then sheet2 will unhide column c to f and hide column g to J.
Run Macro When Cell Is Selected

Cell Value To Run A Specific Macro
I have several macros that email a specific section of a workbook when I run it - I have an icon (image) per section. I want to be able to run a macro that calls one of these section specific macros based on a choice from a drop down list.
It would work this way:
- From the drop down in cell E11 I choose "New Jersey"
- I would then click on the email image next to the cell (next to E11)
- that macro would call the macro that emails the "new Jersey" section.
I realize there might be a much better way, easier even. However, I already have the other macros written out and would just want to add this step.

Run A Macro On Cell Click
i have this piece of
Private Sub Worksheet_FollowHyperlink(ByVal Target As Hyperlink)
If Target.Range.Address "$A$1" Then macro1
I want so when i click on cell A1 it will run macro1.
So far the click on the cell works, but it works with every single cell I click on. How to I get it to just work with cell A1 instead of everyone single cell I click on?
Also, there are about 30 different cells that will run different macros, how would I go about creating adding the code the one above without having to create separate sub worksheets?
Run A Macro When A Cell <> Blank

Run Macro Based On Cell Change
I am working on a training scheduler. In which a sheet contains the details of the trainings that are scheduled now i need that if any training is canceled then a mail needs to be sent (Status is updated in cell). I have code to send mail however the problem that i am facing is that how can i execute this macro when training is canceled. I did a search and found the following thread

but the code given in the thread uses a specified cell address to execute the macro. Where as in my case I can not provide a specific cell address as any training can be canceled.
Run Macro Based On Cell Content
I have a drop down list made from the Forms toolbar with a list of items: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have set it with a linked cell, so when you choose, say 3, from the dropdown, 3 appears in B10.
I was hoping to add a 'Go' button, which would run another macro depending on what is in B10, i.e. so if 3 was chosen, then you press 'Go', Macro3 would be run.
So I have 5 macros called Macro1 - Macro5, and I need some code for the 'Go' button which will run the right macro depending on what number is in cell B10.
Run Macro On Selection Of Validated Cell
I have a macro that I am running "onentry" of a worksheet. The problem is that I have some cells that are validated to allow a list. If I manually type a word from the list in the validated cell the macro runs. However, if I make a selection from the list the macro does not run. I guess vba does not see my selection as an entry.

Find Non Blank Cell And Run Macro

Run A Macro Without Breaking Cell References
I have a macro that cleans up data on one sheet, text-to-columns, flip rows of data, etc. Another sheet references the cells AFTER the data has been cleaned up. However, I can't put the cell references in from Sheet1 to Sheet2 before I run the macro because it breaks the references.
Just a simple example, Suppose cell A1 contains the formula: =Sheet2!B5.
If I go to Sheet2 and run the macro to clean up the data, when I got back to Sheet1, cell A1 contains: =Sheet2!#REF!
The idea is that this is a template, and the user can input aggregate data, run the macro to clean it up, and then go to the other sheet. I can easily create the macro to add copy/paste between the two sheets, but I'm looking for a cleaner way to do this.
Return To Active Cell After Macro Run
I am using Excel to tabulate scores for my employees. We work in a very busy and open office, so there is a need to be able to obfuscate the scores, but also help keep from losing my place while punching the scores.
I would like it to be able to return to the last cell that I was punching a score in...I used "ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Select". I have also used " x= cells(Rows.count,2).end(xlUP).row" followed by "cells(x+1,2).select", but both with no luck...
.HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
.VerticalAlignment = xlCenter
.WrapText = False

Return User To Cell After Macro Has Run
I am writing some code where I will need to refresh data and do a few calculations while the user of the spreadsheet is working on the information. How do I write the code for VBA to record what sheet/ cell the user is currently on and then do i use the "GoTO" function to return the use to where he/she was when they left off.
Run A Macro Based On Value Input In A Cell
I am using data validation to restrict the number of Characters a user can input in a range of cells. The number of characters in this however can vary based on which selection they selected in a different cell.
To put this as an example, if the user selects "hello" in cell a1, the data validation would allow 10 letters in the cell range c1:c20. If the person selects "goodbye" in cell a1, then the validation would only allow 7 characters in cell range c1:c20. I have been using the worksheet Change function, however it updates the validation regardless of what cell is changed.
Macro Will Not Run Find And Replace With The Contents Of A Cell
I want to have a macro that will look at a few cells say A1 & A2 and then use the contents of the cells say 1Q07 & 2Q07 respectively to do a find and replace find 1Q07 and replace it with 2Q07. I want it to use the contents of the cell and not just the text because the contents of the cell will change each time used. I tride to do it here but I dont have it yet. It doesnt seem to pass the value to the variable and the variable doesnt seem to do the find and replace.
Private Sub Update_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim quarter As String
quarter = CStr(txtquarter.Text)

Dim oneq As Single
Dim twoq As Single
Dim threeq As Single
Dim fourq As Single
Dim fiveq As Single
oneq = ActiveSheet.Range("A2").Value
twoq = oneq - 1
threeq = twoq - 1
fourq = oneq - 4
fiveq = oneq - 5
Leaving The Cell Blank But Allowing The Macro To Run
How can I have my macro run in its cell and still allow the cell to be blank? Say I have a number, 0.99, in the cell and I want to delete it and leave it blank. I can either push "Backspace" or the delete key and it still leaves zeros.
If I push the space bar it stops the macro (which I do not want to happen) and leaves the cell blank because I added a space.
