From a workbook, I need to open a further workbook called 'transfer' and then switch back to the original workbook. Presumably I need to save the current workbook name to a variable, open transfer with Workbooks.Open Filename:="c:debworkTRANSFER.xls" then switch back to the original
How do i pass the original workbook name to a variable, and then reactivate it. I have tried numerous options but just cannot get it to work. Do i reactivate with workbook. activate or windows.activate
I'm trying to write a piece of VBA code which will switch back and forth between 2 workbooks, but I was hoping that I would not have to name both workbooks in my code.
So far I have been able to name the second file as a variable, open it and copy the data I need, but I now need to switch back to the original file. Is there any way of doing this without hard coding the file name?
I have 3 workbooks open, the main WB has my command button + code in it, and the other 2 were opened up using the existing code in my main workbook.
Using general code e.g( Thisworkbook, activeworkbook, workbooks(1)), how can I activate one out of the 3?
I know the main workbook can be accessed using "thisworkbook", but when I activate it, I can't activate one of the others in my next line of code using activeworkbook.activate, or workbooks(1).activate.
Is there a way to switch back and forth between workbooks without having to use the Activate command? I have everything planned out but this aspect is still a source of confusion. The Project: I need to have qty purchased and price in a table from Worksheet B entered into the matching customer index location in Worksheet A. Worksheet B contains customer number, sku, qty purchased and price. Worksheet A contains customer numbers in row 3 and sku's in column A. Minor data manipulation will need to be done on Worksheet B before before accessing it which I plan to do after opening it in this macro.
I have create a nice invoice with macros to random insert pages and summations etc. Works fine, but to complete it I want to go one step further and there ìt got out of hand. I want to create the following, but I can not get al this combined in two Macros.
Basis: Workbook 1 = Invoice, Workbook 2 = Invoicelist Required actions Macro1: 1. Starting point is that Workbook “Invoice” is open. 2. The user activates Macro1. 3. Check if Workbook “Invoicelist” is active. 4A. If YES then continue, 4B. If NOT then reply with some sort of Alertbox “Invoicelist not active! Click OK to open (needs to open Workbook “Invoicelist” or Cancel to stop (needs to stop Macro). 5. Workbook 2 “Invoicelist” is now open. 6. Find the last invoicenumber in the list. Add “1” and put the new number to the list (to prevent using double numbers). Then I want to take this number to the “Invoice’ workbook, but that can be done by copy and paste.
Now I get really stuck because I want to use variables instead of multiple copy paste actions.
Required actions Macro2: 7. We are in Workbook “Invoice”, the user activates Macro2. 8. Same check if Workbook “Invoicelist” is active as in Macro1. Several data from “Invoice” has te be transfered to “Invoicelist”. And to be safe, this does not have to be the last cell if the user “forgot” to store date for a previous invoice! 9. Store data from sevaral cells in variables, including invoicenumber! 10. Find invoicenumber in “Invoicelist”. 11. Paste data from variables into fields on same row as correct invoicenumber. 12. Save Workbook “Invoicelist”. 13. Go back to Workbook “Invoice”.
The two problems I cannot fix is checking if Workbook is Active and store and use cell values with variables.
To initialize some cells/ranges, I am copying a given range and pasting it to another given range using the. Copy and .PaseSpecial methods. However, it would seem that both methods actually select the range(s) for the operations, i.e. the given ranges(s) are activated/selected thus changing the focus on the spreadsheet. I would like to perform both operations without actually selecting the given ranges.
I am receiving a 'subscript out of range' error on the lines of code below.
I would note that all variables are declared and all seem meaningful as regards what you would expect at that point.
Below is a snippet from the immediate window which indicates what the values are: completecashname C:CashDevelopmentMyFolderoutputCASH042706.xls cashsheetname Formatted Sheet cashcurrcolumn A cashfirstrow 2 cashlastrow 876
Also the workbooks are both closed at this point (but it makes no difference)
Set CashCopy = Workbooks(CompleteCashName).Sheets(CashSheetName). _ Range(CashCurrColumn & Cashfirstrow & ":K" & Cashlastrow).Value Set PelPaste = Workbooks(completepelname).Sheets(PELSheetName). _ Range((PELCurrColumn & PELlastrow)).Value
After this I would like VBA to copy all the variables in a range that is bounded by startcell and endcell. Here is what my code is currently for selecting the range:
Range("A2:" & endcell).Select
Instead of A2, I would like to select startcell, but I cannot figure out how. Currently I can get VBA to recognise endcell. For example, using the formula above I can copy the range from A2 to endcell. However, when I try and use startcell as the beginning of the range (in place of A2) the code does not work.
I have two tables in two different worksheets. In the first table, rows get deleted if the value in column 'S' (the first row to the right of the table) is not '1', and columns get deleted if the value in row '2' (third row above the table) is not '1'. In the second table, the number of columns stays always the same but rows get deleted if the value in column 'N' (first column to the right of the table) is not '1'.
After the rows and columns are deleted the tables get pasted in a ppt presentation. Now the problem: I am a beginner in VBA and up til now I am only able to define a certain Range, e.g. ("A5:M17"), to be copied and pasted into ppt. But since the tables will sometimes be bigger than other times depending if rows/columns are deleted, I would rather define a dynamic Range. The top left cell of both tabels to be copied is always 'A5' but the bottom right cell changes.
I have a spreadsheet with Employee details and each employee has a Indicator and a Score. I'm battling to get Excel to do a lookup on the Indicator, find the applicable Score Range, see if the individual's Score falls within the range and then inserts the relevant % into a cell in a specific row of each employee.
If we did not have more than 2000 doing it manualy might have been an option. Also, the Percentages and Score Ranges in the matrix might change a couple of times....
I am having a few problems selecting a range. What I am trying to do is select a range where the number of columns stay the same, but the rows are variable; ranging from one row upwards. At the end of the rows, there is a blank row. I currently have;
I am trying to select a range of cells. The range I need to select starts in Cell A1. I need to select every row with data in column 1 up to the first row with no data. I then need to expand the range to all columns up the last column with data, including columns with blank cells.
The problem with my code relates to the selection of columns. It is only selecting up to column F. Column G is empty, Column H has data, Columns I-J are empty, Columns K-R have data.
I'm trying to obtain a formula that allows me to select the last 20 numbers in a range of numbers that continue to increase weekly. i.e column a3-a3000 increases by one number every week. I need the formula to sum the lowest 10 numbers of the last 20. If there is 30 numbers from a13-a33 week one. I require the formula to pick up the 10 lowest from the last 20 (a13-a33). Week two the cell increases by on to a34. The formula would then have to pick up the lowest 10 from the last 20 (a14-a44) and so on.
When I use this code is only gets A1:N6...: is there anyway to get it to select the range all the way to the end of the data. I tried CurrentRegion and some other stuff but can't get it to work.: The range may go upto line 500 or 3 I just never know.
I'm trying to write a formatting macro that will insert a gray divider (row) into a blank line. I'm going to do this with a keyboard command, but I'm having a hard time selecting to column AJ. Obviously this command...
...takes you to the end of the page, but I don't need to go that far, just to column AJ.
I have a spreadsheet where I need to perform a calculation on the lowest 10 of the 20 most recent entries. Currently I am just deleting the oldest entry and putting in the new data but I now desire to keep all my data.
How do I select the new range of 20 rows and then tell it to take the 10 lowest values to perform the calculation
I have 2 worksheets where I need to transfer a certain amount of data from one to another depending on dates.
Sheet ‘A’, is the main data source. Col A holds all 365 dates from 1 Jan to 31 Dec(starting at A2), and the subsequent data for each day is held in cols B to P. Sheet ‘B’ is the destination where the user will specify a key date in cell A3, then in A4 to A32, formulae populate the next 29 dates (ie so there is a continuous run of 30 days).
What I need to do, is to identify the same 30 day range from sheet B on sheet A, then to copy the data in Cols B to P for that range back onto sheet B (pasting in at D3)
Question 1) Is there a way that whenever I select Cell B39 that it will copy cells B39:V39 ? From there I can manually paste that selection to where I need to.
If this is possible, it would save the effort of having to select B39:V39 manually and clicking CTRL-C. I am gathering data and the copying and pasting is killing me.
Question 2) Is it possible that when I click on Cell A9 that it can paste any data that I just copied from another worksheet to cells A9:D29? The size of the selection that I would copy is the same size as A9:D29 (4 columns & 29 rows).
I have searched for a solution, but I am not having much luck since I am anaware of the proper terminology for these types of actions.
