Running A Userform To Update The Current Cell Value

Apr 13, 2008

I have to append the cell value with a user input string in to the same cell.
i.e, if the user types "Issue" in the cells ranging C1:C200, I would like to make a mandatory issue description to be entered by the user. So a user form with text box and command button was introduced which should append the cell value with the user input in the text box.

The issue that I have is with the cell selection within the code for the form.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Issue (" + TextBox1.Text + ")"

For example if the user tabs out from cell C3, the output from the userform will be written to D3 ? or if the user hits Enter key to come out, the output will be written to C4 and so on.
How can I make ure the output is going to the same cell?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
If Application.Intersect(Target, Range("$C$1:$C$200")) = "Issue" Then

Dim MyForm As New UserForm1


Exit Sub

End If

End Sub

'Code for the userform is below:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
If TextBox1.Text = "" Then

' the user input is mandatory
MsgBox "Issue Details is mandatory", vbCritical, "Mandatory Field"


' append the cell value with user input in the text box
'****issue is here in the next line
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Issue (" + TextBox1.Text + ")"

End If
End Sub

Code To Update Cell With Current Date And Time When Other Cells Are Modified

Mar 11, 2014

I needed a code that would input the current date and time in the cells in column N whenever changes were made to any cells in the row from columns A to M. For example, if I change a name in cell 6D, then cell 6N would automatically change to the current date and time.

I found a useful code on a forum (maybe here, don't know for certain) and modified it to suit my needs (see below). I am however now getting a debugging error suggesting that the second line that reads "Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()" is causing an error.

Update UserForm Textbox To New Active Cell?

May 14, 2014

I am working on a addin UserForm to quickly format cell text, especially only select characters in a cell. I have this functional in a modal setting working with the active cell when I activate the UserForm. What I would like to be able to do is to work in excel without having to close the Userform and have the textbox update with each new cell. I have changed the UserForm properties to ShowModal = false which gets the first half. However the textbox will only show the cell value I started with.

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
TextBox1.Text = ActiveCell
End Sub

Display Current Code Line Number While Macro Running

Sep 19, 2007

Is it possible to display both the current code line number and the total line count of a macro while it's running?

I was thinking it would be handy for a progress indicator if the ProgressBar max value could be set to the LineCount total of the procedure and each line of code would increment the progressbar as the macro ran.

Auto Update Links With Current Values

Aug 4, 2006

When copying data from a closed workbook, I frequently get the prompt:

"Links to 'Source.xls' were not updated because 'Source.xls' was not recalculated before it was last saved.
To update links with current values in 'Source.xls', click OK..."

Is there a way I can bypass this prompt and automatically update with the saved (uncalculated) values and therefore not require a user intervention?

Running Code On SharePoint Linked Worksheet To Update Existing And Future Data

Aug 8, 2012

I inherited a spreadsheet to manage that is linked to a SharePoint table.

It is trying to populate a date that a certain "Tier" is selected (1, 2, 3, or 4).

It works great if I manually type in the tiers, but does not run on existing data (about 400 records) or lines that are updated and new via the SharePoint list.

How can I have this run on all of the existing lines and anything added or changed in the future from the list?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("AD2:AD10000")) Is Nothing Then
Application.EnableEvents = False

[Code] ....

Running Total On A UserForm

Jul 21, 2006

I know this may have been answered before but I didn't really understand those answers and my scenario is slightly different. I have a UserForm that I am asking people to enter data into. One part of the UserForm asks for a percentage spread across an age range. For example for the age ranges 16-20, 21-25, 26-30 (etc) whats the percentage of smokers. This will obviously then add up to 100% which I want to put in a ' total' box at the end of the line of input boxes. I want this box to be updated whenever someone enters a percentage into the boxs but I can't seem to work out how to do it. That's basically what I'm asking help for on. Its easy enough when doing it on the spreadsheets themselves with the SUM function but how can I do it on a UserForm. Does it need some complex VB coding?

Current Userform TextBox

May 16, 2008

After seaching on this and other forums I have not been able to get an answer to this question. Also I know there are a lot of posts out there that sound like this, but none are the same.

My spreadsheet has multiple userforms, which has multiple textboxes. The textboxes are for dates. I have it set so when you double click in the textbox that it calls a calendar function.

Here is the problem.... After you click ok on the calendar form I want the date to go into the textbox that the calendar form was called from. The only way for me to get this to work is to create a seperate calendar form for each textbox that I call the calendar form from.

Displaying Userform & Running Macros

May 11, 2006

I am copying web data into Excel and need a creative way to run a couple formatting macros on the data. I’m looking for the best way to initiate the macros. I cannot use command buttons because they’ll get deleting as a result of the line “DrawingObjects.Delete”.

I’d like to use a Useform with a couple buttons but am not sure how to have it automatically display when needed and hidden when not needed. I also prefer not using toolbars button unless they will only be displayed in that workbook and not any others.

Stop Userform Running Macro

May 14, 2007

I currently have a userform that runs a bunch of code for me. There are a lot of listboxes on the userform that have rowsources of various dynamic named ranges. I'm running into a problem when I have the used click the "Remove Item" button from the userform. Normally it is supposed to go back to the sourcerow and remove all of the cells that contain values that are selected in the listbox.

The code for removing the cells works just fine, however when it deletes a cell, for some reason the code executes a private sub that is in a different sheet. I can't figure out why and it's messing up my macro.

Here's the


Private Sub cmdAIRemove_Click()

For i = 0 To lbAISummary.ListCount - 1
If lbAISummary.Selected(i) = True Then
For Each cItem In Worksheets("Lists").Range("YourAI")
If lbAISummary.List(i) = cItem.Value Then
cItem.Delete (xlUp) '<- right after this line it jumps to NWSMonth_Change
i = i - 1
End If
Next cItem
End If
Next i
End sub...

Running Date And Time On Userform

May 30, 2007

Here is the code for my user form.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

TextBoxDate.Value = Now
TextBoxDate = Format(TextBoxDate.Value, "dd mmmm yyyy hh:mm:ss")

End Sub

This is a form to have employees punch in/out. The form is designed to be running all the time. The TextboxDate is disableed so the user can not change it.

I would like to know if it is possible to get the time to be displayed on the form constantly? Right now it only updates when the OK button is pressed on the form.

Manually Select A Range During A Running Userform

Sep 10, 2009

I am trying to sum a dynamic range of values, clear the range (ie. clear the numbers on the spreadsheet), then place the sum of all the numbers in the last cell in the user selected range. (essentially adding all values selected, placing final sum in the last row of the range, and leaving no trace of performing the routine)

I want the range to be selected during the userform running (using showmodal = false). I can sum the selection and write the value to a cell, but I can NOT write the cell to the last value in the selection.

Update A Value In Userform

May 20, 2009

In Excel, I have created a userform where a user inputs parameters into various textboxes. A simulation runs based on these user entered values. All the VB code is in this form. There are some textboxes and charts that are supposed to get updated as the simulation runs so that the user can view the parameters change as the simulation happens (it is a "do loop").

Everything is fine except the charts and textboxes don't display the most current value. They display the starting value during the "do loop " execution. Once the do loop quits, they then display the final values and chart.

I have me.repaint and chart.refresh inside the do loop to display the most recent values. none work, as far displaying the most current values.

Show Current Row Columns UserForm TextBox Controls

Oct 1, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that has a userform attached to it with text fields that enter additional data regarding each record. The userform takes these additional 5 fields and inserts them back into the spreadsheet, the final information to be exported back into Access. ( There are of course other ways to do this, but this is how my supervisor wants it done!)

My problem is that now that I can scroll through the spreadsheet without closing the userform, the userform doesnt show the current row's information as I scroll or change rows on the spreadsheet. It will only show the information that was in the row that it was on before i switched back to spreadsheet.

Shortcut Key To Place Current Date In UserForm TextBox

Aug 7, 2008

I have a Userform that allows users to add projects to a tracking sheet. If the project is a WIP, no 'Sign Off Date' needs to be entered. When the project is complete, I would like the user to be able to hit a shortcut key (while inside the user form, with the cursor in the 'Sign Off Date' textbox) to populate the 'Sign Off Date' textbox with today's date (i.e. like CTRL + ; does in Excel) rather than have to enter it manually.

Update Userform Textboxes On The Fly

May 10, 2009

I've got a workbook (attached) with a UserForm that summarizes transactions entered in columns A and B based on the entry (color) in column A. If you click on the Button (Summary (Show/Hide)) it brings up the UserForm.

A couple of issues I've struggled with:
1. I'd like the UserForm to open when the workbook opens.
2. I'd like the UserForm to update as entries are made in Columns A and B when the user tabs out of column B
3. I'd like the UserForm to always stay open; the user cannot close it.

I've got the same data in cells G26:M34 but these cells don't "float" as the page moves down. This is the reason I've gone to a UserForm to accumulate the data.
