Selecting Range Of Cells

Jan 31, 2009

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 Visible Cells

Jan 9, 2007

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

Jun 11, 2008

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 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.

VBA / Selecting Cells Of Certain Value AND Also Adjacent Cells

Jun 20, 2012

I have two simple columns of data: one with names (Column A) and the other with numbers (Column B).

I am looking for the most efficient way of selecting cells in Column B of a certain value and also selecting the cells to the left of those selected cells in Column A.

I have the current code based on SpecialCells, it works most of the time but for some reason it's buggy and sometimes returns an error. Is there another way doing this without using Special Cells?

Sub SelectbyValue()
Dim Cell As Object
Dim FoundCells As Range 'Range that's found
Dim WorkRange As Range 'Range to search

Logic With Multiple Cells, Selecting Between The Two

Jan 16, 2009

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.

Macro Selecting Cells Via Variable?

Feb 18, 2012

I'm trying to make a macro'd button that when clicked will select the cells A1:A?? where ?? is equal to the value in cell B1

B1 is a variable number that changes to be the proper amount of rows that I require selected.

It's always A1 down to A9 minimum and A1 down to A400 max.

Once selected I need the macro to copy the selected cells to the clipboard for another application to be able to paste that info.

So far I've been able to get the copy command to work and the range command to work but can't seem to figure out how to put the variable number from B1 into the range command.

Specify Cells For Find Dialog Without Selecting Them

Apr 16, 2007

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?

Active Cell - Selecting Too Many Cells

May 13, 2008

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..

Selecting Cells While Userform Is Open

Jul 5, 2006

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?

Ctrl-A Selecting Limited Range Of Cells

Apr 8, 2009

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.

Ignoring Specific Values While Selecting Multiple Cells

Dec 20, 2012

I have to correct a spreadsheet that takes a bunch of values and creates an average.


I didn't create this. Anyway, the problem is that most of these cells will be empty unless a whole bunch of other stuff is filled. These N cells take several values, put them together and create a new one. As time goes by they are filled. While they aren't filled, they'll return the DIV/0 error.

So when that formula I pasted there uses all of these values, it also returns a DIV/0 error because it is getting info from cells that have this error.

I managed to correct that with this

It works like a charm save for one problem. When I use averageif I'm forced to use an interval. Along this interval other values show up (it is always a value ranging from 0 to 2). So when the formula works its magic the results are slightly skewed because of this other value that I don't want.

So I figure there must be two ways around this. The first one would be using something like averageif that lets me use several handpicked cells instead of an interval. If I try


It doesn't work, it says I have too many values. So if I could the exact same thing as I did with averageif but keeping all of these values it'd be super nice.

The other solution, less nice but equally effective I guess, is using this same interval but having more than one criteria. The first criteria would still be the one telling it to ignore DIV/0 error, the second criteria would be the one to ignore any values equal or lower than 2.

Count Blank Cells Between Two Dates Without Selecting Each Cell?

Aug 19, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that contains dates in column A, the number of rows between each date can vary. Selecting a cell with a date in will activate a checklist in the form of a UserForm.

I am trying to create a macro that will count the number of rows from one cell with a date, to the next cell with a date, and then resize the selection for printing.

So far I have this;

Sub test()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set InitialCell = ActiveCell


My problem with this code is that when it reselects the InitialCell, the UserForm is reactivated. Is there a way to achieve the same results without having to reselect the InitialCell, and therefore the UserForm wont pop up? I tried adding the Unload UserForm1 line but it doesnt have any affect, the form still pops up.
