I have created a command button from the Excel 2003 from the Macros toolbar that I placed on my worksheet. I want to use this button to activate an existing macro. Currently I have no code entered for this button and the button when clicked on behaves as an object to be edited, moved, etc. How should I proceed?
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
I am trying to create a uniform stock database for my company. Thus far, I have 2 worksheets. The first is a face sheet, for the user to interact with. This face sheet has a number of drop down menus on it allowing them to select "Type" and "Size" of the item they need. This information is then translated (by a hidden table) into an item code.
The second sheet contains a list of all the uniform items currently in stock. Each item has its individual code that correlates to the code the face sheet generates.
My question is regarding a search macro.
I want the user to be able to click a command button on the face sheet, labelled "search". This would then take the generated "Item Code" and search for it on the second worksheet. I am aware that it would be very easy for them to simply copy the code into "find" on the second sheet, however it needs to be as easy and quick to use as possible.
My command buttons are moving location after I run a macro. I have a worksheet with 5 command buttons from the forms toolbar. When the macro is run, another command button is moved into the cell that the macro ends in, how can I stop this?

above is the sheet template we use on a monthly basis. I would to like to use a command button which will run a macro creating a new sheet with the sheet name each month. The idea is to have a text box and a command button,enter the month in the text box and click the button. A sheet for the month to create at end.
I would like to create a command button that is available on my worksheet at all times. When clicked the user would be prompted for a password and then if correct a macro would run. If the password is incorrect then the user would receive an error message "You do not have access to run this maco" and he could go back to entering his values.
Is it possible to have a user form command button perform link or steps that are recorded with macro recorder? I am trying to reformat cut and paste a xls raw data file. I am trying to keep my file uploads to a min., but can upload an example if necessary.
I have two combo boxes that both contain 7-12 separate search criteria for the user to choose from. The other includes months and the other value ranges in text form. Based on the selections, e.g. "August" from other and "increased by more than 5 %" from other, I'd like to have a command button to execute the appropriate macro. I've already compiled the macros for each occasion but I just can't figure out how to get the button to execute them. Can I use the Select Case statements? If so, how?
Oh, and whether it's relevant or not, the boxes and the button are from the control toolbar.
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.
.State = msobuttondown .State = msobuttonup
Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.
I was thinking of how the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro can be used to paste values instead of formula when the user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V. Instead of assigning a macro to a command button for user to activate.
Suppose I have a worksheet where the range ("D7:D56") is where I would want the user to paste his values in it. I have to factor in the possibility that these values have formulas attached to them, and that the user is not tech-savvy enough to know about the "paste special --> values" functionality of excel, and chooses to use the Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V method instead.
What then appears are ####### which might alarm the user.
Neither would we want the user to press a button (which we can assign the xlpastevalues macro as an alternative) as that adds an extra step for the user. There is also a chance the user might not use the button, or overlooked it.
Is it possible to use the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro, or sth similar, to paste values instead of formula when user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V?
I have searched this topic but I came up with nothing regarding my exact situation.
I have 5 buttons on sheet 1. I want them to all direct me to another sheet in the same workbook. However, some buttons will contain more than one sheet.
Example: Button 1 will direct me to 4 different sheets. Is this possible?
Also, When I open the workbook, I see many sheets that I am working from but I do not want them to show up when I open the workbook. The only way to see these sheets is to click on the command buttons at the top of sheet 1.
