Sheet Navigation With Buttons


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?

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.

Radio Buttons In Protected Sheet
I have a pair of radio buttons on an Excel 2007 sheet. I want the buttons to be clickable, but have the sheet protected.

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.

Scrolling Macro Buttons With Sheet
I have a spreadsheet containing a group of Macro Buttons, each button has been assigned a macro that enters specific text in the selected cell when the button pressed.

But as you scroll down the sheet, the group of buttons is left above. Is there a way to make the buttons scroll down (or up) along with the spreadsheet ?

Buttons Not Wanted On Copied Sheet
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.

Copy/paste Buttons In New Sheet
I am using VBA to copy and paste the entire contents of a worksheet into a new sheet. However I have a button that I put on the sheet that needs to move aswell. I got it to move but the event handler for the button

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

that is stored on the first sheet and not copying with the button. Is it possible to copy code from one worksheet to another (or maybe store the event handler somewhere else?)

Enable/Disable Command Buttons From A Sheet?
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 forth..by 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?
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.

2: I have a button on the sheet with a macro that saves the sheet once it has been worked on, the sheet flashes when this button is clicked is there any way I can stop the sheet flashing ?

Change The Color Of Buttons Or Command Buttons
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.

Drop Down Navigation Query
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"
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A5").Select
Case "Test2"
Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A9").Select
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.

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

Navigation Through Spreadsheet Using Shortcuts - Not Range Names
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")

For example, if the user needs data from Line L, they could select Line L from the drop down menu and the spreadsheet would jump down to that area.

UserForm Navigation Bar Control Error "1004"
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
End Sub...........................

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

Using Buttons Over 2 Workbooks...

CELL-X then is used for a series of calculations on SHEET-A.

CELL-Y is adjacent to CELL-X and can have a number entered into it which is then used instead of CELL-X for the calculations on SHEET-A. (It is also incidently displayed over CELL-Gs value in CELL-X)

I would like to have a button next to CELL-Y which upon click alters the value of CELL-G in SHEET-B to that of CELL-Y in SHEETA.

Resetting Option Buttons
I have a spreadsheet to keep track of purchase orders, and I use groups of option buttons to run macros to filter the info by category using auto filters. Not sure if I'm explaining this well, but as an example, I have one set of option buttons for whether the items are late, and one for whether I have flagged the order for some reason, and a couple of others. It does everything I want, basically.

I have a button which resets all the autofilters in one go, but the problem is it doesn't put the option buttons back to the "Show all" option for their categories. I tried recording a macro and clicking in the "Show all" option so I could look in the code to see how it refers to it, but it just says to run the macro, nothing about selecting "Show all".

Also, the way I reset all the autofilters is to have a macro that goes to every autofilter in turn and selects "(All)". Is there a better way of doing this?

The Philosophy Of Option Buttons
I noticed that it has a frame, and within the frame are three option buttons. I became quite curious as to the relationship between option buttons and the frame. With no coding on my part, the little buttons seem to mystically sense their presence inside of a frame, and dutifully acquiesce to whichever new option is clicked, so only one option at a time may be true. I decided to experiment. I created one lone option button outside of the sacred frame. I was able to click it on, and, lo and behold, I could not click it off! When I cut and pasted it inside the frame, with its brethern, it automatically became obedient. Well, I pasted it again outside the frame, and experimented with how I might turn it off. Now, my perverse nature began to sense that such behavior is the venue of a checkbox and not an optionbox. But, like Don Quixote, jousting at windmills, I was determined to have my way. The only methods I found to turn a lone ranger option box off, once checked, was to use the keydown option, and set it to false, which is obscure and tacky to say the least, or to place a label next to it, entitled, "turn the blasted thing off" and, in its click event, set the option button to false.

What I deduce from all of this is that the proper function of the option button lies within the boudaries of a frame, with one or more brethen option buttions. Am I correct in my surmize? And otherwise, one should be using a check box, which may be toggled on or off to the heart's content?

Hmmm. I have not thought to test the function of checkboxes residing within a frame (until just now!).

Experimentation reveals that if I add several check boxes to the frame containing the option buttons, there is no apparent affect. The option buttions still obey the frame rules for radio button logic, and the check boxes may be toggled on and off at will.

So, I ask myself the next obvious philisophical question, namely "what would be the use for a lone option button that, once turned on, could NEVER be turned off.

Well, in our society, I can think of two obvious applications.

One: "Have you ever been a member of the Communist Party"

Two: "Have you ever been attracted to the same sex."

Now, in our society, once there is the slightest hint of either option, it can NEVER be turned off. Even if you need better reading glasses, and you mistook "same sex" for "SOME sex", no matter, you checked the option and now you are branded.

And if you want to cancel my form, think again, because my VBA code updates with ever change event.

This option button philosophy suggests to me an interesting social commentary. I was once asked to write a literary analysis of the movie, "Brokeback Mountain" and the short storie by Annie Proulx. I asked various people, randomly, if they had seen the movie. I asked one African American male, and he recoiled from me and say "Ewww, you would watch that movie." In his mind, I had checked that option box, and there was no turning back. I gave him the following explanation. "Imagine an athlete who was notorious for seducing over 1000 women, but suddenly the tabloids revealed that as a teenager, he had one same-sex involvement. What would you say of him?" Of course the answer was that he was one of those "brokeback mountain" folks. So, then I asked him, "well, suppose someone was notorious for 1000 same sex involvements, but the tabloids revealed that, as a teenager, he had a relationship, with a girl?" Well, we know the reaction, same thing "a brokeback mountain fellow."

So, I progressed to a similar analogy. I said, "You see me as Caucasian, but, suppose you learned that my great great great great grandparent was African? Would you then see me as African-American? But, if your great great great great grandparent had been Caucasian, would you consider yourself Caucasian." He became quite flustered and said "that is different."

But, aha, is it really so different? Therefore, in our society, in our values, in our minds, in our stereotyping of others, we do require the data type of the lone optionbox, which can only be checked ON, and once on, can NEVER be checked off.

And, yes, this post is pertinent to excel vba forms, because the purpose of our forms and our datastructures is to accurately mirror our thinking, our values, and our society.
