Showcase Query: Pause Macro

Nov 21, 2006

I am running a Showcase query from inside excel. I want the query to update, drop the data in excel save it and then close. The problem is that the save command is executing before the data is dropped. The Wait command pauses all processes so it won't work. Is there a way to have a minute of filler until the data is dropped so it will save?

Pause Macro And Wait For User To Click On Cell To Resume Macro?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.

What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.

Pause Macro - Select From A Drop Down - Restart Macro

Dec 18, 2007

I am trying to pause a macro on a protected sheet, select 2 adjacent cells (initially protected), utilize an existing drop down box to select a name from the list, copy the name from the list into the range of cells, then re-start the macro.
I had no problem when there was just one name (see John Smith below). I tried to use the InputBox command but needed to actually type in the name.

ActiveSheet.Unprotect
Range("C27:D27").Select
'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "John Smith"
' Application.CutCopyMode = False
' ActiveSheet.Paste
'Range("c27:d27") = InputBox("Enter value")

Pause Macro Execution Without Using Stop?

Jul 3, 2014

I have macros that often pause for the user to take some action -- for instance, to confirm that the correct cells are selected, or to delete something. Usually I use the "Stop" command, which opens the VBA editor; when I finish doing the manual action, I just resume the macro.

When writing macros for actual users, I'd like to do the same thing without their having to deal with the VBA window. Is there a way to pause and resume action and remain in the Excel window?

Can Pause A Running Macro Then Restart It

Mar 19, 2014

I've written a macro for work that will work with our billing process. After part of it has run, I'd like to pause it for the user to check a column for errors and possibly update a table to get rid of those errors, then after those errors are fixed, have the ability to continue with the rest of the code. I tried to make a message box to remind the user to look for the errors, but it wouldn't allow me to click anywhere except for on the buttons.

Macro To Pause Code, Another To Resume

Jul 27, 2007

I have a workbook with several hundred row the VBA code loops through. It takes about an hour to run all the calculations. Whenever I need to pause the script I hit ESC, which works well for me, but for other users it would be nice to have a command button that halts code. Even better would be another button to resume code.

Pause Macro, Allow Format, Resume Macro

Mar 14, 2007

how to interrupt VBA code, allow user modifications to a chart, and then continue the code where it left off with a click of a button. I currently have the code in place where a UserForm pops up at a specific point and tells the user to make adjustments and press OK when done. It works fine but the UserForm displays and the macro resumes when OK is clicked, but I can't figure out how to activate the chart or the spreadsheet to allow editing while that UserForm is on the screen. If only I can get excel to allow me to sleect the spreadsheet and make changes while the UserForm is on the screen, I would be set. Can anyone please help me with any options to allow editing while the UserForm is on the screen so I can edit and then click the OK when done?

I posted something similar to this over two years ago. The way I got around it at the time was to break the code into two separate subs. This time around, the code is making 17 graphs and I want to ask for editing for each one before continuing. That would be a lot of individual sections of code.

Pause Macro To Allow User To Select A Cell?

Aug 15, 2014

I am wanting to pause a macro to allow a user to select a cell and when the user hits enter the macro starts running again. My intention is that a user would select cell B5 or B8 or B55 and then hit enter and the cell would move 6 cells right and enter a value from the macro. The following is what I have tried and even though it allows to select a cell, it doesn't make that cell the active cell.

Web Query Macro

Mar 6, 2007

I'm using this macro in order to bring some data to two cells.. it's currently working great...

Sheets.Add
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
"URL;http://magpie.boise.itc.hp.com:8080/gip/fileStatus.jsp?transKey=GUS8301D&fileName=GUS8301DBN2AFH3M" _
, Destination:=Range("A1"))
.Name = "fileStatus.jsp?transKey=GUS8301D&fileName=GUS8301DBN2AFH3M"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False

However, as you can see from the text in bold i'm currently telling the url instead of bringing it from a cell with an url. I want the macro to be able to select the url from a cell.

I'm trying to use this solution, but i keep getting a Run-time erro 5:
Invalid procedure call or argument.

connstring = Range("GUS8301!B3").Value
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=connstring, _
Destination:=Range("A1"))

Macro Query

Jul 4, 2008

i have recorded a macro wherein i need to copy paste some data in my database everyday.
now the problem is tht the macro doesnot catch the last row.

for instance if i paste data today in A2:A10
tomorrow it should automatically paste data starting from A11.

the range of data tht i copy is not fixed.

This is a part of macro...
Range("A1").Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select (This takes me to the last record on that row)
is there anyway i can copy the data in next column?

'Range("A11").Select (This will work only for the first time when i run the macro)

but if i use the same one tomorrow
Range("A1").Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select This will take me to the last record but..
it will again go to
'Range("A11").Select
and then paste records there

Sub Total Macro Query

Oct 22, 2007

I worked on this macro for about 2 hours, with only partial success.

I have credit card data (will attached next post) sorted by tender type. I recorded teh subtotal feature, after selecting the data. I used teh go to, special, last cell, feature to get the end cell for selection, and also set the print area to this range. I did it in relative mode.

the macro worked, but when I also tried to insert three rows above the "grand total" cell, then insert a sub total of just master card adn visa, it in one of these added rows didn't work upon playback.

also - Can I lock the position of my macro buttons? IN properties it's set to locked but they still move when teh data changes. Can i put them on teh tool bars?

Macro: Login To Web Query

Dec 15, 2006

So I have some data that I'd like to extract from some financial sites that I'm a member of (one in particular is investors.com). I try and pull stock info from the site, but I have to manually initiate a new web query, go to the website, login, then cancel the web query for the macro on my spreadsheet to start pulling information. What I'd like to do is have two cells referencing my user id and password, and then click a button that will goto the website from excel, login, and allow the extraction of financial info to occur.

Macro Running Sql Query

Apr 2, 2007

I want to write some VBA that retrieves data from a lotus notes database into excel. I will then have some other code that manipulates the data for the user. I have managed to do this with MS Query manually. However when I start to put into VBA my problems start. As I do not know Sql I use the macro record function. This worksso far so good. The problems seem to start when I re-run the macro and try to save the workbook. Excel just sits there with the CPU running at 99%. I left the pc for an hour and it was still in the same condition with the status bar showing save.

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= Array(Array( _

Pass Parameter From Excel Through MS Query To MS Access Query

Nov 26, 2012

I have an MS Access query that contains a parameter. The parameter is a date field, and I have configured that in the Access query. If I run the query within the MS Access user interface, it prompts me for the paramater value as expected, and runs just fine. However, I want to connect to this query from within Excel as a data source.

I have created a connection to the Access file using ODBC from within Excel. In the MS Query window, I am merely selecting all of the fields resident in the MS Access query, and returning all values. In other words, there is no selection criteria in the MS Query. I have done this many times with Access queries that DO NOT contain a parameter, and everything works fine. However, in this instance, I need to pass a parameter through to MS Access in order for the query to run. At the moment, I get the "Too Few Paramaters...1 expected" error message. This makes sense, because I haven't figured out how to pass the paramater to MS Access.

Is there a way to structure this that does not involve VB code? If so, I'd love to know how. I have tried creating parameters in MS-Query with the same name, but although I get the prompt it doesn't connect with the Access query as the source for the parameter value.

If the solution requires using code, I'm good with VB Code in Excel...is there VB for Excel code that could make this happen?

Failing that, I guess there must be (I've seen a few in my search thus far) Access VB Code that can make this work. I'm very rusty using VB with Access, so this is my least favored solution. However, if this is the only option, keep in mind that I need to pass the paramater ultimately from a user who will initiate the process using Excel.

Macro To Connect To Infomaker And Run Query

Apr 17, 2014

I'm trying to get my macro to connect to Infomaker and run a query. I have successfully done this in the past by using the record macro function. But, when I try to record the macro and paste the query syntax from Infomaker into the commandtext box of the connection, I get the "too many line continuations" error.

I've been looking at ways to write the code rather than record, but the syntax for the Infomaker queries doesn't seem to mesh well.

The syntax of the query in Infomaker is (copy/pasted, all "'s are necessary):

Code:

SELECT "COMPANY"."CO_NAME",
"COMPANY"."FLAG",
"CO_REF"."CO_VALUE",
"ITEM"."ISSUE ",
"REFERENCE"." ID_VALUE",
MIN(CODE.PROD_CODE)
FROM "COMPANY",
