Selecting Vs Activating Then Copy

Mar 30, 2007

I know there is a simple answer for this, and I did a search but could not find what I am looking for. I am comparing two different workbooks. I loop through the first workbook (oldfile) and then find the corresponding value on the other file. I find the corresponding value using

With Worksheets(1). Range("b2:b" & blah)
Set c = .Find(MyVar, LookIn:=xlValues)

I know the cell address of the value that was found by

firstAddress = c.Address

Now I need to offset a few columns and copy the data. If the cell address was in R1C1 format then I could do this easliy by ActiveCell.Offset(Row, col + Offset).Copy

(where row and col are given from the c.address function. But I don't know the RC value since the c.address provides the value in "A1" format. I do not want to actually go to the cell and then do an offset and copy, since it is a large spreadseet and would be slow. I don't want to do a bunch of string manipulations (unless it easy). Is there a way to have c.address output it's values in R1C1 format? Or is there a different command I could use?

Copy/Paste Range(s) Without Activating/selecting Range(s)

Oct 2, 2008

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.

Is there a way to set up a cell so that when you click the cell, the cell’s value is automatically copied to the clipboard?

A1 = “1”

Can you set up cell A3 so that when you pick it with your mouse, “3” is copied to the clipboard ready for you to paste elsewhere?

I have tried searching through the forum to find an answer but nothing has come up.

Selecting Multiple Data To Copy Throughout Worksheet

Sep 4, 2009

I would like to create a spreadsheet where I enter a list of 30 – 40 names and associated data over 4 separate columns. I would like the option of having a check box next to each name so when checked, it copies that name and associated data in to a section below. This will give me a reduced list of names (lets say 20). From this section I would like the same again to reduce further and once more after that.

Running A Macro To Copy Multiple Cells From A Row By Selecting A Cell

Feb 21, 2009

I want to be able to select a cell, for example A10, this would then run a macro that would copy and paste several cells of information along that row and paste it on another worksheet. However, if i then choose a15, a3, a79 in turn (using the control key), it would run the macro using those rows in turn.

i'm looking forward to hearing if and particuliar how this could be achieved.

Selecting All Data In Specific Columns Without Selecting Adjacent Column

Mar 10, 2014

Using VBA, I need to Select A1:C14.

The problem is that A1:C14 contains blank cells, and there is also an adjacent column D that I do not want to copy.

So, UsedRegion and CurrentRegion aren't doing it for me. (It selects Column D too.)

Obviously, this is an example...the real data set is an export and varies in size.

Activating Add Ins

Jun 8, 2006

Below is code I use to try to 1. call a sub that take the users to a specified location on a specified shhet, 2. one to remember user menu set up, 3. one to remove tool bars, 4. one to set up menus for operation of my program and code to activate two addins required by my spreadsheet program.

If neither of the analysis addins are selected prior to opening the spreadsheet, when the spreadsheet is opened the appears to work properly except that the 'Start' sub is not initiated. If the spreadsheet is saved, closed and reopened it all works perfectly.

However if both of the analysis addins are selected prior to opening the spreadsheet for the first time all code appears rto work perfectly.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Call Opening_Screen
Call Toolbars_Record_List ' writes to sheet cbars the names of command bars to recall on leaving
Call Toolbars_Remove
Call Endusermode
Application.AddIns("Analysis ToolPak").Installed = True
Application.AddIns("Analysis ToolPak - VBA").Installed = True
Call Start
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Function Activating Without Known Trigger

Aug 2, 2006

I am encountering a strange situation with my Excel 2000. I have a public function, in a module in the VBA project associated with my workbook. But I'm not calling it from nowhere inside the code, or from other macros - it is not being referred anywhere in the workbook. Yet, after I make a slight change in code and not save my changes, when I return to the workbook and select a value from any cell with a validation-list (regardless of the sheet where it resides), that particular function is being executed!

Error 9 When Activating A Worksheet

Mar 23, 2007

All code is called from another workbook

This fails on the second line with a type 9 error, ie worksheet not found

Worksheets("Rent change details").Activate

This works:

Workbooks("RENT_EXPLANATION.xls").Worksheets("Rent change details").Activate

Surely both should work since the default qualifier for the worksheets object is the activeworkbook? This only fails in Excel 2003, in the same app. in Excel 2000 it works.

VBA Activating Code On Mouse Hover

Apr 19, 2013

Is there any way I can activate a sub routine when the user passes the mouse cursor over an activeX object.

For example this activates code when the user interacts with an activeX scroll bar:

Private Sub ScrollBar2_gotfocus()
Dim A, B, C
If OLEObjects("checkbox1").Object.Value = False Then
B = Range("B4").Value
A = (100 - B) / 2
C = (100 - B) / 2
End If

IS there a "gotfocus" equivalent such that code will run if the user simply passes their mouse cursor over the scroll bar EVEN IF they dont click it?

Activating Multiple Array Formulas At Once...

May 14, 2009

Does anyone know how to activate a block of different array formulas at once??


N7:Q80 has a total of 296 Array Cells. Each has a unique formula & I cannot just drag to fill these nor can I activate all at once.

In the future, I don't want to have to manually activate them w/F2, CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

btw, Why do I have to press F2? Is that only in Excel 2007? I googled pretty extensively & don't see an option how to only press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. It would be nice not to have to press F2 everytime.
