when run a macro to make the macro select all the cells in a specific column that only contain data i.e. i have a spreadsheet 5 columns wide by 23 rows deep, the macro at the moment selects the 5 columns (this never changes) but the number of rows always changes 123, 56, 1, etc i need to to always select the rows that have data.
I have a column that has mostly empty cells. I want to select only the ones that have data so I can perform an operation on all of them. Empty cells must be excluded from selection. I do not know where the bottom of the data is.
The solution needs to be in VBA where it is part of a larger macro affecting the user's worksheet.
how i can select the most recent 10 cells from a list of data to be included in a formula. I have selected it manually, for example F122:F131. This is fine but i don't know how i can put it so that it will update to the 10 most recent results when i input another line of data. So when i put in more data it stays on the previously selected. I want it to move shift down to include the new data but only the 10 most recent.
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 found the code below which randomly selects number and places them into column "I". However, I need the code to search through column "F" and randomly select numbers from column "F" and place the result in column "I".
' Select the indicated number of items from the ' currently selected cells. Public Sub SelectRandom(ByVal num_to_select As Integer) Dim num_items As Integer Dim indexes() As Integer
how do I select all cells from say B6 to the one above the active cell, and all the cells below the active cell, ie i want to select all cells in a column except the active cell and the first 5 cells. (in VBA of course).
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 .
I have two excel sheets with lots of data in, that i import from a database. Based on these two sheets I make four other sheets that are suppose to get input from this two sheet. To decide what lines I shall copy to the other sheets, I use a filter. But my problem is that there can occur new data too the two main sheet....
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:
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.
I'm trying to write a VBA code that'll select cells in column B that contains text until it comes to a blank row, the amount of data changes each time, i've tried two different approches but i'm unable to get it to hold the cell, it only moves down one cell each time i run the macro, no errors though.
I'm working on a macro that's supposed to copy certain cells from a sheet, and paste them in another. But the problem is that I can't find a way to get them all in one go. The sheet that I am copying from has a mile-long list that looks something like this:
OR0220018NO-RING 21,95 x 1,78 N270 BS-0205,00 OR0220018N90O-RING 21,95 x 1,78 N290 BS 02022,00 OR0220018VO-RING 21,95 x 1,78 V275 BS-02010,00 OR0220018V90O-RING 21,95 x 1,78 V290 BS 02013,00 OR0220020NO-RING 22,00 x 2,00 N2709,00 OR0220020VO-RING 22,00 x 2,00 V28024,00 OR0220025NO-RING 22,00 x 2,50 N2705,00
It goes over 3 columns. I want to select column A, B and C in every row that contains the letters "N270".
I'm working with Excel 2007 and all of a sudden its selecting two cells. I've tried what others suggested of the F8, I even shut it down and opened it again. I took my template and saved it as a normal book, opened that one and again same thing.
Private Sub bttnPCsFind_Click() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Cells.Select ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 10 Application.ScreenUpdating = True Application.Dialogs(xlDialogFormulaFind).Show Application.ScreenUpdating = False ActiveCell.Select ActiveCell.Select 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?
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..
I'm trying to use the SUM function with non sequenced cell but the Range or any other function won't allow me to activate the selecting cells if there are more then 41 cell, I wrote somthing like so:
Sub Test() Dim str AS String Dim R AS Range
str = "A1,A3 ...... ,A57" 'this is only an example, assum that there are _ more then 41 cells Set R = Range(str) 'Here is the Problem, I get a Runtime error 1004 _ Application-defined or object-defined error R.select End Sub
But if the str input was a 41 or less Cells address string then it works
I am currently setting up protection on an excel sheet - I have a proceedure to open a specific worsheet and lock and unlock cells according to whether or not certain information exisit. My question is, although I can lock cells and prevent users changing them using code I can't seem to stop them selecting cells in the first place - this is obviously achieveable from the 'Protection'>'protect workbook' menu but I want to do it from code since the sheet is unprotected and reprotected a number of times during a session....
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?
