Selecting Visible Cells
someone the VBA code which only selects visible cells in a sheet.
i.e. if for example, range("a1:d5") contained data BUT

range("a6:d100") contained formulae but NO data

the macro would only highlight range("a1:d5")

However, when say range("a6:d10") contained data, then the macro would highlight range("a1:d10")

and so on.

I want the mcro to do this without me having to manually change the ranges when running the macro.

SpecialCells - Selecting Cells With A Certain Value
How do I use SpeciaCells to select cells in a range with a certain value?

In the same manner that you can use SpecialCells to select blank cells and then delete that entire row I want to do the same for a cell containing a specific value/text

I have been using SpecialCells to assign a value in blank cells as a temporary marker. I then need to delete the rows with the temporary markers. I have not been able to use SpecialCells to select the temporary markers .

Selecting Range Of Cells
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.

Selecting Cells Containing Specific Character(s)
How to get Excel to select all cells within a specific column that contain a specific character. In this instance, I need to select all the cells which contain a comma...

And even better would be if I could get Excel to not just select all the cells in a specific column containing a comma, but each of the rows in which those cells reside.

Active Cell - Selecting Too Many Cells
I have some code as below
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select

This should basically go down a list and stop when there is a blank cell. However due to a previous operation in my excel program, it is not doing so.

Basically this list has been formed from copy and pasting from a list of formulas. some of these formulas return a result and others return "" leaving the cell empty.

When i have pasted i have used paste special/values... but it still seems to paste something into these cells because this macro wont work.

I even went and manually selected the first blank cell and pressed the delete button and when i do this it correctly selects the cells only with content, so clearly when pasting a "" value it stops the activecell operation from working..

Specify Cells For Find Dialog Without Selecting Them
In the routine:

Private Sub bttnPCsFind_Click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 10
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 10
End Sub

Is there a way to set the range of cells for the DialogFormulaFind to search against that doesn't involve Cells.Select? Functionally the above routine works perfectly but, if given the option, I would prefer to not have the cells highlighted (and thus darkened) while performing the search. If I remove this line altogether then nothing in the search is ever found. It is a visual glitch I am looking to get around.

Does anybody know how Excel manages the selection of the cells when performing a find using Ctrl + F (when performing a find using the hot key or menu item the cell range isn't selected (highlighted) ahead of time and thus, remain white during the search/Find Next). Is this possible to code this behavior using VBA?

Logic With Multiple Cells, Selecting Between The Two
I'm working with Excel 2003 on a peice for work that requires users to enter their current grade and, if they have one, a temporary grade. Another sheet in the workbook needs to add together all those in a certain grade and who answered a certain way to a drop-down table, so that I can use it to figure out what percentage of staff are of each grade. At the moment it looks like this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Work_Data!F2:F9827="Grade 1"),--(RIGHT(Work_Data!K2:K9827,3)="Top 25%"))

Which only draws information from the current grade (column F) and the answer they give (Column K). What I can't come up with is a formula that will only take column F as long as column G hasn't got a temporary grade, but if it does have a temporary grade will take column G instead.

Selecting Cells While Userform Is Open
I have created a userform to get cells from the user using the selection property. The userform is supposed to do the following: prompt the user to select the first range. When the OK button is clicked, the selected range is stored to the variable first_range. Then the userform prompts the user to select the second range, and stores the selected range to second_range once the OK button is clicked. My problem is that I am unable to select cells while my userform is open. Is there a userform property allowing one to select cells while a userform is open?

Selecting Cells Based On Textbox Entry
I have a user form with some option buttons (1,5,10,etc...) that are used so the user can select a given number of cells they want selected. My last option button is labled Other(optOther) and has a textbox next to it(txtOther).

What I am trying to do is give the user the option to either select one of the given numbers or be able to enter their own number. The data will then be extracted from one worksheet to another. I have all the coding for the optiong buttons with the given numbers, just cant figure the textbox one out.

My data starts on B5, so what i am trying to do is when the user enters number n, i would need data from B5:B(n+4).

Ctrl-A Selecting Limited Range Of Cells
I have a spreadsheet wherein if I press ctrl-A (normally Select All) it is only selecting a limited range of cells ($B$12:$M$22). If I press ctrl-A again from there then it selects all.

I can see something like that being useful in some cases and annoying in others, but I have no idea what is causing it. Some of the cells in that range are locked and others are not. Some of the cells outside that range are also locked while others are not. In any case, the sheet is not protected.

Selecting Data For Chart
I'm working on a macro that creates columnplots from a sheet of data.

The sheet is organised as a series of tables. Through a userform, the user selects the columns and rows that she wishes to include in the plot.

Is it possible to control the order in which the data is plotted?
For instance, the macro produces the following range to be plotted:

"$D$29, $B$29, $C$29,D33:D31,B33:B31,C33:C31"

where row 29 contains the table headlines, and rows 31:33 contains the data.
However, when I plot this, it always ends up as column B, then C, then D, rather than D first like I wanted.

I'm fairly new to both Excel and Visual Basic, so it's difficult to explain exactly what I'm after, but hopefully someone will understand what I'm after here..

Vlookup Not Selecting Source Data

I have had this problem with many different workbooks. The only solution I have found is to copy the whole sheet, paste-special-values into a new sheet and use that as source.

Selecting Data Over A Date Range
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)

VBA - Selecting The Last Cell In A Column With Data
I am trying to write some VBA code to select a range in a column going down to the last item in the column.

So I want to write a macro that will copy cells B4 - B17 into cells A4 - A17 but am having trouble with the code that will select B4 - B17. When I use the usual code which is as follows:

ActiveSheet.Range("b4", ActiveSheet.Range("b1").End(xlDown)).Select
it selects down to A75, and I know why this is but not how to fix it.

This is raw data extracted from a third-party system. It has an option to export to Excel, but where it appears to have blank cells Excel actually believes there is data in there.

So is a way to identify what data Excel thinks is in there and perhaps use this to be able to select the range I want?

Different extractions will need a different range moved over - however it will always start at B4 and go down to B-whatever.

Add A New Column Of Data To The Results Displayed When Selecting From A Dropdown Box
I have a dropdown box to choose a category.

Along with that course name it gives the relevant course overview.

This works exactly how i want it to. (thanks to Zbor from a previous thread)

I now want to expand further and give the corresponding course objectives for each course that shows up in the results.

I have attached a workbook as its much easier to see the dropdown box working.

Sheet 2 is the working sheet and sheet 1 will contain all the source data.
I have highlighted the columns affected in Blue Blue column on sheet 1 will have the course objectives on the same line as the course they belong to Blue column on sheet 2 is where they will be displayed when the correct category selection is made.

The course objectives are unique to the course title and course overview.

Unfortunately, I am currently unable to stop them from doing what they should not be doing.

So, I would like to have a notification of some sort pop up into their face if they click or move the selection anywhere else while Cell X1 is still empty. Something like a validation would be nice.

Highlighting A Range Of Cells Dependant On Data In Any Of Those Cells
On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

Calculating Cells Used Based On Another Cells Data
I have a bit of an odd issue I need to solve. I use an Excel spreadsheet to track daily income for the store over a months' period. I have each day set to give me a rough estimate of profitability for that day. I also want to create a cell that tells me how much we've made so far, based on the number of business days so far in the current month. For example:

Day 1, $1500, $800 in expenses (monthly expenses averaged over the month, plus labor costs for the day), so a total of $700 profit.

Day 2, $1700, $749 in expenses (same as before), so a total of $951 profit.

The formula I'm using to calculate that isn't an issue, but I have the same formula for every single day, and each day has it's own cell with the estimated profitability for that particular day. In two other cells, I put the total number of business days in that month (in this case, 26), and in another cell I put the current number of business days we've had this month (in this case, 4), which is used partially to calculate the other cells. I want to use them to create another cell to contain the estimated profitability based solely on the number of business days out of the month we've had.

So E3 through E33 contain the individual days, I want to calculate - since we've only had 4 business days - what E3 through E7 would total. When I change it to 5 business days, i want it to calculate E3 through E8. So if we've had 4 business days, it only calculates the totals from the first 4 cells, if 5 business days, then the first 5 cells, etc, etc.

I can sort of picture it in my head, but I can't seem to find the necessary equation for it. It may require a macro, but I'd rather use a formula if possible. I'm not a big fan of macros.
