Running Macro On Save Event

Aug 30, 2009

I need my macro to run when the spreadsheet is Saved. Is that process written in the macro code or is there an existing event control in Excel to accomplish this?
Running Excel 2007. I tried searching the forum & found one post that ran the macro on open, but couldn't set that up to work on save.

Exit Event Running Twice Due To SetFocus

Feb 15, 2013

I am using a Textbox1_Exit event that (if certain values are true) sets the focus to different Textbox. However, when I invoke the Textbox3.SetFocus, it redoes all the code in the Textbox1_Exit event since it's technically leaving now.

How do I stop this from happening and ensure that the Exit event happens once? OR How do I properly SetFocus inside an Exit event?

Prevent Event Code Running

Oct 19, 2007

I know how to enable/disable events using VBA code, however is there an option within excel to turn it on/off? My problem is this...

At the beginning of my code I disable events and at the end I enable it again (I need to do this to avoid being caught in a loop). However something is going wrong somewhere in my code and the code stops halfway through. I'm trying to test sections of the code, but I often inadvertently stop the code without enabling the events again. Therefore I can't get my VBA to execute again unless I close excel down and restart. This is a pain as I have to find my place in the code again!

Run Macro When Right Arrow Key Pressed

Apr 1, 2009

I have Sheet2 containing Supplier data in 2 columns - SupplierTAxCode and SupplierName (unsorted)

Sheet1 contains the Expenses section.

In Sheet1, column E6 to E1000, after inputting each SupplierTAxCode and pressing the RIGHT ARROW key, I would like to automatically get the SupplierName in column F6 to F1000 - from the corresponding data in Sheet2

In the event that the input in any of the cells in E6 to E1000 does not exist in SupplierTAxCode in Sheet2, would it be possible at the same time, to change the background color of the adjacent cell (SupplierName) in column F6 to F1000 at the same time - as a reminder to add those to the Supplier data in Sheet2 at a later date.

I could use Index Match and Conditional Formatting, but am concerned about the file sizes.

Prevent Event Code Running When Other Workbooks Open

Aug 23, 2008

I am having difficulties with my Worksheet_Activate() macro. It works great within workbook1 when it is only workbook1 open - but when I open another workbook2, the macro stills runs, presumably because Sheet1 of workbook1 is still activated as well as the newly activated sheet in workbook2.

Is there a way to ensure that only 1 worksheet of 1 workbook is activated at a time? Or that sheet1 of workbook1 is deactivated when workbook2 is opened/clicked on? I need my Worksheet_Deactivate macro to run to get rid of my Worksheet_Activate macro (which runs an application that resets the function of keyboards keys). Otherwise moving around workbook2 is a nightmare. When I navigate back to workbook1 while workbook2 is still open, I still want sheet1 of workbook1 to be activated and my macro to run .

Textbox Click Stops Event Code Running

Aug 26, 2007

I have a textbox from the drawing toolbar. When someone changes a cell then clicks in the textbox, Worksheet_Change does not run. If they double click in the cell, that's OK I can capture that event and protect the sheet, stopping them clicking in it. But if they just start typing in the cell, I can't capture that. I have seen some API code which captures keypresses, but it is not practical to use as it loops repeatedly. I could lock the textbox and have the user do something to unlock it, but this is a last resort.

Macro To Create A Graph When Button Pressed?

Apr 16, 2014

I have a table of data which contains company names, the number of high risk policies, number of low risk policies, and the percentage of high risk policies (compared to total policies).

What I want to do is for people to be able to select up to six of these companies and press a button that says 'create graph' and it creates a graph which shows the number of high risk and low risk in a stacked bar, and the percentage on a separate axis as a line. I know how to manually create this graph no problem, but to be able to dynamically create one from selected companies would be awesome.

To start with I have created six drop downs where you can select the company name as I image the macro will need to know which companies' data to look for in the source table.

Prevent Combobox Change Running Other Control Event Procedures

May 17, 2008

I have a userform with a combobox in it that's rowsource is a column of company names in a worksheet. When a company name is chosen, a combobox change private sub runs and many userform textboxes are populated with information about the company that was chosen from the combobox dropdown. This information is stored on a worksheet. I then want to edit any of the information in these textboxes. Once my edits are made I have a CommandButton that is pressed to save the edit changes. This CommandButton runs a private sub that disables the combobox (thinking this would prevent the combobox private sub from running), deletes the row that the information originated from, and then SHOULD make a new row of values based on the contents of the textboxes following the edits. The problem is that the CommandButton coding that deletes the row causes the combobox change private sub to run because the company that had been selected is now the missing from the rowsource; this causes an error.

BeforeClose Event Not Running / Working When File Is Closed Through VBA In Another File

Jun 26, 2014

I have a code in file A that opens several files (B,C,D&E), copies some data from them, then closes the files. That part of the code works fine, but each of the files that are opened (B,C,D,&E) have a Workbook Open event that causes the file to save automatically every 30 seconds. (I know this is not recommended, but this is what the user wants.) The files also have a Workbook Before Close event that is supposed to stop the timer so the file will close without reopening. These each run fine on their own.But if I run code A, the workbook Before Close event in file B (C,D, & E) does not seem to run and the files reopen after 30 seconds to save. When I step through the code it works fine and goes through the Before Close event in each file and the files remain closed.

Macro Stops Running The Macro Completely And Hangs In The Middle

Jul 3, 2007

Here in our department we made a pretty elaborate macro that takes a report and sorts them out to 17 different sheets in a one workbook. This Macro pulls a file from a specific location on our server and then opens the CSV sorts it out color codes all the important information and saves it back onto the server under you specific initials.

They are four PC's along with our Managers laptop that run this Macro daily.

About 3 weeks ago my Managers laptop stops running the Macro completely and hangs in the middle of the whole thing. Eventually crashing Excel.

We try to remove the modules and re-import them back into the personal macro workbork but this does not work. The Macro's did not change and still fully function on the other four desktops to this day.

I uninstall Office on my Managers laptop and reinstall. Import the Modules again and still hangs up in very same spot it did 3 weeks ago.

I've tried to lower the macro security to the lowest level also and I've still had no luck with this laptop. I don't understand. The Macro's function perfectly on other PC's but will not function on this laptop.

Worksheet Change Event :: (ByVal Target As Range) Event In Module After Creating A Sheet

Mar 27, 2009

Is there a way to write a Worksheet_SelectionChange (ByVal Target As Range) event in module after creating a sheet in VBA? I constantly delete a sheet, then repopulate it with a new one that is empty, but I need to add some code that happens if they should change a particular cell. It worked when I ran it on a worksheet without refreshing, but as soon as I cleared and repopulated the sheet, it was gone. Is there a way to preserve this?

Run Macro From Event On Second Page

Jun 20, 2009

I have a situation where I have a macro that sorts on sheet1. I would like it to run when a cell changes on sheet2 in E9:N21. Since the cells on sheet1 are linked to data on sheet2, I cannot trigger the macro from sheet1 due to the cells being formulas instead of values.

Here is what I have tried and it is not working. I must be doing something wrong with the syntax.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Intersect(Target, Range(Sheets("Games")("E9:N21"))) Is Nothing Then
Exit Sub
Else
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=33
Rows("6:55").Select
Range("A55").Activate
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A55"), Order1:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess _
, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
DataOption1:=xlSortNormal
Range("A3").Select
End If
End Sub

Dynamic Worksheet Event Macro?

Nov 21, 2013

i currently have a workbbok that i have a very simple worksheet event macro that will filter a seperate sheets contents to the corresponding entry number. is there any way to make a dynamic event macro that will filter my second sheet depending on what cell is selceted on the first.

for example record 1 on sheet 1. if cell L1 is selected it will filter sheet 2 to to record 1, record 2 on sheet 1, if cell L2 is selected it will filter sheet 2 record 2 and so on. this list of records will continue to grow and i cant think of any way other than what i currently have, which is to make each filter macro for every cell.

is ther a better way example of CODE HERE

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If Target.Address = "$L$5" Then
Call Filter1
