Sheet Navigation With Buttons

Aug 30, 2006

I'm going to be creating a workbook that contains a worksheet for each year. Within each worksheet, I will have a calendar format that contains a range for each month of the year (multiple columns and multiple rows). Is it possible to name areas based on month and then create a button or drop down list at the top that would allow users to select the month and the view would go to that area within the calendar?


Next And Previous Navigation Buttons?

Apr 4, 2012

I would like to have a "PREVIOUS" navigation button in a workbook that goes back to the previously activated worksheet, which may or may not be physically the previous worksheet in the workbook. In other words, if I go from Sheet #1, to Sheet #3, to Sheet #5, I'd like to return to Sheet #3 from Sheet #5 (rather then navigating back to Sheet #4).

"Open VB editor and double click 'Thisworkbook' and paste this code in on the right:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetDeactivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
lastsheet = Sh.Name
End Sub

Then right click 'ThisWorkbook' and insert module and paste this code in

Public lastsheet As String
Sub Select_Last()
End Sub

Whenever a user changes sheets, the name of the last sheet is now held in the variable 'Lastsheet' so if you assign a shortcut or button to the code then the last used sheet will be selected."

My problem is that when I want to assign the macro, I can't find macro name that looks anything like the above in the drop down list of Macro Names. how to assign the macro to a button?

Let me try it real quick. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Ok, that works great, now I have to go back and add all the real units and soldiers. Fun, fun, fun. BTW, you wouldn't happen to know how to add a first worksheet that would have buttons to take you to the different sections? I know how to do the hyperlinks, but I think I read something on here about comboboxes?? If I need to post this somewhere else, then just push me in the right direction.

Delete All Buttons On A Sheet With VBA

Jan 31, 2012

I have a macro that saves a sheet to another workbook. However, that sheet contains buttons with macros, so when saving to a new workbook, the macros get copied over.

Is there a VBA code to delete all of the buttons on a sheet? I can't name them individually, because for some reason, excel changes the name of the button between the sheet and the new workbook.

Is there a generic code to delete all buttons?

May 20, 2014

I have a spread sheet and I want to have multiple option buttons on it. but for separate things

e.g. I need roughly 50 option buttons. however. I want about 25 groups of them.

so I want 2 buttons next to a cell where user can select one. then I want 2 more on cells below where user selects one for a different question

but at the moment, every single option box copies every other box when I changed the format control cell reference. even though I haven't copied and pasted them!

Buttons Not Wanted On Copied Sheet

Nov 4, 2009

I am copying sheet 1 to the back of the workbook and renaming it. I am using a few command buttons on sheet 1 to trigger the copy macro, etc. I do not want these buttons on the copied sheets.

I have done a right click /Format Control/Properties and selected “Don’t move or size with cells” but the buttons are still being copied and still active for the macro. Perhaps due to sheet copy versus cell copy?

I guess I could add select and delete steps to the macro for the buttons but this seems excessive.

Radio Buttons In Protected Sheet

Both are defined as unlocked. The Group containing the two buttons is also defined as unlocked.
But when I protect the sheet, one of the two buttons gets the pop-up saying the cell is protected - the other button is fine. I've even tried unlocking the cells behind the buttons, but it still pops up.

Enable/Disable Command Buttons From A Sheet?

Oct 14, 2009

How do I Enable/Disable Command Buttons from a Sheet?

I am using a Command Button in a Sheet to copy and paste the Data from one Sheet to another with the help of macro..

As I am not well-versed with VBA dont know all the syntaxes of VBA.
I need help for the command button..

First and Foremost, I double click a Command Button form the Control tool-box and paste it on the Sheet, I dont know how to get the name of this command button , I mean where do i get it?

Based on a condition like a value in a cell I want it to be Enabled and Disabled?

Any ideas...please I am not able to follow even after googling a lot as I dont know what's the name of the command button control I have used.

If the value entered in a particluar cell is more than the 1000 difference between two cells then the command button should be disbaled...

The Application part:
The command button is used to transfer the data in a cell lets say $I$4 to another sheet Cell J2,J3,J4 so on so incrementing the ROW number.

Now The balance gets depleted with every new Debit Entry and we need to disallow the user from entering such an amount which will reduce the balance more than The Minimum Account Balance of a bank...

Graying Out Custom Menu Buttons When Sheet/book Protected?

Oct 6, 2009

is there a way to cause my custom menu items to grey out like the built-in ones, depending on the current selection or when the status of the active worksheet/workbook changes (e.g. when the book is protected to disallow certain actions)?

Obviously I can trap any problems once the associated VBA is invoked, but it'd be more professional if I could just prevent that from happening in the first place.

Multiple Macro Buttons (radio Buttons)?

Feb 10, 2012

I am trying to create a worksheet that has multiple radio buttons. Each radio button is linked to a Macro. I need there to be many buttons running down one side of the worksheet. Each button needs to perform a macro that is relevant to the cells in the same row that it is on.

Essentially what i am trying to do is make a macro that when the button is pressed copys data from H6 and paste it into B6. The button is situated above I6. I need a button for each row from 6 to 110.

While this macro is easy to create (i use the record button and then assign the macro to the button), i would have to do this 104 times and assign a new macro to each button.

Is there a quicker way?

Change The Color Of Buttons Or Command Buttons

Mar 14, 2007

Is it possible to change the color of buttons or command buttons? There does not seem to be any place that allows this under properties for buttons, although there does for command bars. However, I've tried recording a macro as I change the color, but nothing get's recorded so I'm not sure what the syntax would be.

I have a spreadsheet with several buttons and I'd like them to change colors as they are pressed so it's possible to see what you've already done. And then, as soon as any other cell on the sheet is changed, the buttons reset color.

Form: Textbox Navigation

I have a form set up with excel (2003) using vba. I'm doing a check to see if textbox1 is empty, if it is, a msgbox pops up with a warning that "textbox1 needs to be filled out". I click OK and the cursor goes to textbox2. I want the cursor to return to texbox1 without user intervention but can't figure out how. I'm using "Private Sub TextBox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)".
I know it can be done because I did it with vba Access, but I can't seem to find it using vba Excel.

Drop Down Navigation Query

Jul 29, 2008

What i want to do is create a drop down list in excel on a single sheet to navigate to a certain row of the worksheet.

I thought i coudl use data validation then use some code in a worksheet change event to skip to that section like this:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$D$1" Then
Select Case Target.Value
Case "Test1"
Case "Test2"
End Select
End If
End Sub

Problem is it wasnt exactly what i was looking for as i cant use an array in data validation so what i thought was a good idea was a bad one.

what i would like is a drop down list that when i select a heading within it, it naviagtes me to that row where my heading is but also makes that row the row scroll up so it is at the top of the page....Hope this makes sense.

my row numbers are 4, 13, 19, 28, 37, 43, 52 62, 65 and 75.

Navigation Of Dynamic Table

Jul 24, 2007

I have a large table where rows are added by copying either the top row or the bottom row and adding it to the bottom of the table. Below is the coding I was hoping to use to jump from cell to cell within the rows using a hotkey assigned to the macro.

Is it possible to apply the following code in a way that copies the same hotkey targets from row to row?

In other words, a row copied from row 1 to row 2 would still have functioning targets of A2, D2, L2 and Q2.

Select Case ActiveCell.Address

Case Is = [A1].Address: [D1].Select
Case Is = [D1].Address: [L1].Select
Case Is = [L1].Address: [Q1].Select

Case Else: [A1].Select

Navigation Through Spreadsheet Using Shortcuts - Not Range Names

Sep 10, 2009

I currently have a navigation menu with 9 options however these options are based on Range names that I have set up.

The concern is that if someone deletes the cell that contains the range name, obviously that option in the navigation won't work, nor would you want it to.

However if someone re-enters a cell that you would want linked up with the navigation there's a lot more action involved.

What i'm looking for is a macro that can be used through a button, Idealy i'd like the macro to search through column "B" and look for key labels (ex: "Ground Floor", "1st Floor" "2nd Floor" etc.) and have each button set up for it's respective search data (ex. Ground button searches only "Ground Floor")

why my keyboard navigation keys (Tab and arrow keys) quit working after the code below executes?

UserForm Navigation Bar Control Error "1004"

Feb 18, 2008

I am having some difficulty with user form navigation bar - when scrolling to the end of the data it works just fine. When scrolling towards the beginning of the data it breaks with a "Runtime 1004: Application-defined or object-defined error".
The reason may be that the beginning of the data is not correctly defined. The data has a header row. Code that I think is relevant to the navigation bar follows:

Private Sub Navigator_Change()
'When Scrollbar value changes, save current record and load
'record number corresponding to scroll bar value
'Call SaveRecord
Set RangeData = Range("CONTACT").Rows(Navigator.Value)
Call LoadRecord
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
'Load 1st record in CUSTOMER and initialize scroll bar
With Range("CONTACT")
Set RangeData = .Rows(2)
Call LoadRecord
Navigator.Value = 2
Navigator.Max = .Rows.Count
End With

Menu Bar/Navigation :: Tool That Creates A Menu Bar Or Code?

Oct 20, 2009

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. Is there a tool that creates a menu bar or code that I can add that would support navigation?

My goal is to have something with approximately 4 options (buttons?). They would link to 4 different sheets that serve as indexes within the workbook.

I know I can add a control like a button to a given sheet that would take the user to given sheet when clicked, but can I make the button 'float' above all the sheets, or add to a menu bar, or something? I just don't want to have to add the button to every sheet in the workbook.

I am looking for something simple/easy, and am not looking for anybody to do the work. I just have no idea on how to approach the problem.
