Setting A Global Variable

May 27, 2008

If I want to set a global variable when I open my workbook which will be used in code on the individual spreadsheets, how would I do this? I want to set the time the workbook is opened to a variable (constant) and then compare that time to current time on each calculation in the worksheets.

I'm using Excel 2000.

Setting Variable Names In Vba

Aug 10, 2009

I am working on a macro for excel which has a userform where the user puts in the number of samples they have, then takes them to a new userform to input the weights of the samples. I want to be able to set the sample mass variable dynamically based on the number of samples they haveÖ

i.e.

spl1
spl2
spl3
.
.
.
splx

x=number of samples

This number will be different each time so I am stumped at how to do this since I have just started in vba and do not know too much yet.

Setting Global Variable From A UserForm

Jul 31, 2009

I have a UserForm that runs when my excel project starts that prompts the user for two pieces of data: a username and a password (these are not for logging into the file itself, I need to use them to call web queries later). I want the UserForm to store both of these data in global variables, so that macros that are run in the future can refer to them and read their values. Unfortunately, I am very new to VBA and I cannot figure out what code I need and where exactly I need to put it. Here is my current code, where "authentication" is the name of the UserForm object, and the textboxes I use for entry are named "user" and "pass": In "This Workbook"

Incorrect Syntax For Setting Value Of Variable

Nov 26, 2013

I'm not sure where my syntax is wrong, and I can't think of what to google to learn more about the possible options I have when creating and declaring the value of variables.

I am simply trying to define the variable aWB as a workbook, whose name is found in cell B6 on the worksheet named "Start" in the workbook named "DW1". This seems to make sense to me, but I am not typing it correctly.

Code:
Dim aWB As Workbook
Set aWB = Workbooks("DW1.xlsm").Worksheets("Start").Cells("B6").Value

Setting A Range Using String Variable

Jan 8, 2014

I'm having trouble setting the Range "UtilizationRange" using a variable, "CurrentRange" to store that range. I get the error "Run-Time error 1004: Method 'Range' of object'_Global' failed".The rest of my code works when I set the utilization range using the actual range for my purposes, but the problem is the range will change each month and I don't want to change it manually each time. There's a cell in the excel sheet this refers to (AG3) that holds the range value, which in this case is [N7:N75], and I would just like to return that value to the variable "CurrentRange" and set UtilizationRange equal to that.

The value is returned to CurrentRange, but it's the last line that's giving me the problem.

Sub RangeTest()Dim UtilizationRange As Range, Cell As RangeDim CurrentRange As String
CurrentRange = Range("AG3").Value MsgBox (CurrentRange)
'This returns the value [N7:N75], which is what I want
Set UtilizationRange = Range("CurrentRange")End Sub

Error Setting Range Variable

Aug 8, 2006

i have compiled a multipage using some borrowed code and some code i have written myself. most of it works, but i have a problem populating listbox2.the error is in Private subCmbFindAllJobNo_Click(). i have put h1 tags around the line of code which shows the error when i debug. this code works ok as a stand alone, so i suspect i have done something wrong in the userform initialise.

Option Explicit
Dim rng As Range
Const FirstRow As Long = 2
Dim r As Long
Dim ans As Variant
Dim MyArray(100, 4)

Public MyData As Range, c, d As Range

Private Sub cmbAmend_Click()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Set c = Worksheets("ENTRY SHEET").Range("b4").End(xlUp).Offset(3, 0)
c.Value = Me.DTPicker1.Value
c.Offset(1, 0).Value = Me.TextBox1.Value
c.Offset(2, 0).Value = Me.TextBox2.Value ..........

Run-Time Error Setting Worksheet Variable

Aug 30, 2007

The user is asked for one piece of information "Enter the ID Number.

What the macro should do then is go to Wks1 find the ID Number and change some cells as a result. This bit works.

Set Wks2 = Worksheets(strWks)

7 rows from the bottom.

My intention was to capture the the name of another worksheet which is held on the same row as the ID Number on Wks1 and call it strWks.

Then further down the macro set the value of Wks2 to that of strWks so that the macro will then go to that sheet and remove data from the row with the same ID Number.

I get a Time Run Error 9.

It just seems to be the bit at the bottom where I am trying to identify Wks2 using strWks.

Sub Macro01C_Auto_Resign()
Dim Wks1 As Worksheet, Wks2 As Worksheet
Dim strFind As String, rngFound As Range
Dim lngRow As Long, rngUnion As Range, strWks As String ............................

Setting Column Chart Data Using VBA For Variable Ranges

Mar 10, 2014

I have some code to plot a column chart of data but it isn't working as expecting at the moment. The code is below. The variable binCounter is a count of how many cells in a range that I want to plot on the chart.

However, what I am finding is that the first couple of cells in the range appear as the series name with the rest appearing as the data in the chart. Secondly, the chart appears with the axis labels 1,2,3 etc when I have some custom ones I would prefer to use. How do I go about setting this property, as I can only find options on setting the axis title There is a lot of stuff on XY charts on Google but I can't find much on column charts unfortunately .

VB:
'activate sheet and chart
Worksheets("Home Page").Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Histogram").Activate

'set variables for chart
With ActiveChart

Setting Variable, Discontinuous Print Area In A Macro

May 29, 2009

I need to write a macro to set the print area to the first two columns (A & B), and the last 12 columns (the last column may change). In both cases I need to print all rows (start is row 1, last row is variable). I am trying to achieve something like the "Freeze Pane" effect with the printer. The first two rows contain column headers (dates). The first two columns contain information that needs to be included on the printout, whilst the last 12 columns contain the most recent data.
Various cells withing the selected ranges may be blank, but no row or column will be entirely blank.

Invalid Qualifer Error -setting Variable Using Getpivotdata

Mar 22, 2007

We have a very long macro that at the end sends an email to each training coordinator. Within the body of the email, we want to autopopulate the completion status from a pivot table using getpivotdata.

We first try to set the variable but get an error: [compile error:invalid qualifier].

Sheets(Summary).Select
Dim BDCompletion As String
BDCompletion = Application.PivotTableSelection.GetPivotData(A3, "Business Dev Plan Found")

And this is how we plan to incorporate the variable into the body of the email:

With OutMail
.To = "name@company.com"
.CC = ""
.BCC = ""
.Subject = CurrentSheet.Name & " Training Plan Status as of " & Format(Now, "dd-mmm-yy")
.Body = "BD is " & BDCompletion & " complete for 2007 Training Plans as of the date of this email."
.Attachments.Add Destwb.FullName
'You can add other files also like this
'.Attachments.Add ("C: est.txt")
.Send 'or use .Display

Setting Values In A Variable Range Occurence Query

Jul 18, 2006

I am trying to count the occurences of combinations within a range defined by contiguous cell values in one column. My problem lies with setting the value of variables that are queried within the defined range. My macro should;

1)Set ComboValue1 & ComboValue2 values to A1 & B1 cells values respectively
2)define range to be searched by how many contiguous values there are in column D
3)search column E for 2 figure combination (defined by A1 & B1). If present increment counter by 1 and add to column C (to be visible in worksheet). If no match carry on
4)define new range by next set of contiguous values in column C
5) step 3
6)when all possible contiguous ranges defined and searched from column c, perform again on next combination down columns A & B with refreshed occurence counter
7)finish when all combinations are searched for

Sub CountComboOccurence()
Dim ListCounter As String
Dim ProgCounter As String
Dim Counter As Integer
Dim ComboValue1 As String
Dim ComboValue2 As String
Dim Rng As Range
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
ListCounter = 0
ProgCounter = 0
Counter = 0
ComboValue1 = 0.......................

Excel 2002 :: Setting Variable To Select All Worksheets In Workbook

Jan 20, 2012

I've got some code which some one posted me a link to on here which set up a pivot table on more that 1 sheets (using excel 2002).

I inserted this code into a rountine I do daily which works fine.

The problem Im having is that Im getting more and more info which I need to pivot over more than one sheet. So I was going to amend the rountine so It picked what ever sheets are in the work book to pivot.

At the moment I have to go into the code and name the sheets to pivot. Is there some code which can work out how many sheets that need pivoting and just do it with out naming them? and also just add a new sheet with the pivot on rather than having to name the destination?

I've posted the code i got given below and have highlighted the bit where I have to name the sheets.

Code:
'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' Procedure : CreateConnection
' Author : KL (Kirill Lapin)
' Date : 18/08/2009

Sheet Name As Variable In Function

Dec 9, 2008

I'd like to compare values from different sheets. My sheets contain data from different years. I have sheets named 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003.... I also have a sheet named "compare". Now I'm using functions like: =('2008'!J13/'2007'!J13)-1
which gives me the relative change between years 2007 - 2008 in the cell J13.


I'd like to use the sheet name as variable. For example: "year 1" is given in cell A1 and "year 2" given in cell A2. Then I could enter (for example) 2007 in cell A1 and 2008 in cell A2. How can I use these cell values in the function? Iíve tried something like: =('A2'!J13/'A1'!J13)-1. I assumed that 'A2'!J13 would be the same as '2008'!J13. It didnít take me long to figure out that doesnít work. What would be the right way to do this?

Referring To Sheet Name Through Variable In VBA?

Feb 21, 2012

I have a workbook with a list of staff in it. The format is: the manager's name is in row 1, the 8 or so team members are listed below. And again in row 20, there is a manager's name with 8 or so team members listed below. This is duplicated over many columns and multiple sheets. The sheets are all named after the ops-managers who manage all the managers on their respective sheet. The book is called "stf.xls"

I'm using the following code to look up a staff member and return who their manager and ops-manager is to the relevant cells in a different workbook:

Code:
Sub AdvisorFind()
Dim Wsht As Worksheet
Dim Slookfor As String

[Code]....

My problem is how to return the manager's name for a staff member in the middle of the book. Activesheet. is the last worksheet so no good. Wsht.name.Range(manager) is what I want to do but I don't know the correct syntax.
