Stop Input Into Worksheet Based On Yes No Response
Mar 4, 2009
I am trying to work out how to stop input into a document if a certain response is selected from a form in excel 2007. Basically, i need some programming so if a question is answered a certain way - the user cannot continue completing the form as it becomes "locked" and an error box comes up saying this is the case - and what action needs to occur. As the list is a data validation list - i cant just separate it out - so that if one response is chosen over another then the error message appears.
For example the question might be "Will you use contractors". If the answer is Yes, the cell turns red and an auto response fills the cell (VBA has already been written into the document for this to occur). What i need additionally is an error box to come up saying "This audit cannot continue as a Minor Plan needs to be completed" and the rest of the questions responses say something to the same effect.
I'm working with a substantial amount of code (which, due to its size, has been spread out into different modules). Whenever I transition from one module to the other, I have placed a msg at the beginning of each module to prompt the user to simply insert an integer to signify which version of the automation that is run. The following is an excerpt of a sample msg
[CODE] Dim Msg, Title As String Dim MyInput As Integer ' Define message."
Where, whatever report is being run, will be the same throughout all of the modules (for example, if you run the "Day" Report" at the beginning, the rest of the automation should be run using the "Day Report" code, not the "Night Report").
Is there a way to do one of the following
1. Label the input of "Day Report" or "Night Report" at the beginning of the automation (where the above except of code is how that would be done), and that can then be the determinant through the rest of the modules
2. Set my code in a specific module to, when it completes, automatically go to the same style of report (Day or Night) in the next module.
I have an input box that should only have numeric input. I have arranged for it to start loop back to the beginning of the box if someone enters letters instead of number, simply hits enter instead of making an entry, exiting on cancel. Now I need to have it loop if someone hits the space bar one time or more. Here is what I have:
Delta: On Error GoTo ErrHandler1 Response = Application.InputBox(Prompt:=MyPrompt, Default:=MyPrompt2, _ Title:=MyTitle) If Response = 0 Then GoTo Delta Z = Response If Response = Cancel Then MsgBox ("You have chosen to exit the macro. Shutting down.") Exit Sub End If If Response = False Then GoTo Delta If Response = 0 Then GoTo Delta
Essentially what I want, is to type a medication in, lets say, A2, and for a macro to produce a response in B2 based off of grouping criteria from another worksheet. My workbook better explains what I would like to see happen. A macro would be best for this, right?
Need to write the VBA code required to automatically add the names of the buyers & sellers as the auction info is entered on the Auction worksheet to the Transactions worksheet of the same workbook? Any member name should only appear once as this will be the list whereby we will generate the receipts by Location order when auction is finished.
I'm protecting a spreadsheet with Excel 2000. For that i used the Excel functionality : Data -> " Validation"
Unfortunately, I can not protect the all sheet or workbook (Requirement). So even if the cells are protected by "Validation", any user can delete the cells using the key DELETE or BACKSPACE on the keyboard !
VBA Macro (which could be activate at each change on the sheet for example...) ? or if it's possible to avoid cells deleting with the "Validation" in the Excel Data menu ?
If it's a macro, it would do :
1 ) see if a user is pushing DELETE or BACKSPACE on the keyboard
2 ) see if the cell contains formulas
3 ) if yes, make a box appears to say that is not possible to delete this cell
I've got a worksheet_selectionchange macro on a sheet, and another macro that you can run after it. The issue is that when the second macro runs, it also runs the selectionchange macro, and wipes some of the info that the second macro should be copying.
Is there a piece of code that I can use in the second macro to block the selectionchance code from running until it's compelte?
I have a piece of code that put a check in all checkbox in column B from row 5 to row 50 but in column C, I have data from row 5 to 38. I want the macro to stop at row 38 in column B. When the cell in column C is empty stop putting checks in column B. How can I make this macro Check all checkbox down column B and stop when column C is empty. How do I add a loop to stop when the cell in column C is empty?
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim CB As Variant For Each CB In ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes CB.Value = False Next End Sub.......
my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.
I am trying create a macro which asks for the Sheet name as an input for a Sub. I've gotten it to work but there is just one problem: The Cancel button does not work on the MsgBox. Everything else works just as I want to: it shows a dialog box to enter a name for the worksheet and if the worksheet does not exist, it loops and shows a message saying that it does not exist.
However, the cancel button does the same thing as entering nothing in the box and it does not end the process. I would want it so that the cancel button kills the process. Here is the code:
Code: Option Explicit Function WorksheetExists(WSName As String) As Boolean On Error Resume Next WorksheetExists = Worksheets(WSName).Name = WSName On Error GoTo 0
I have created a form for my work. And I have input boxes for users to add data that I would like to get stored in another worksheet. What is the vba code to send data for an input box to another worksheet at the bottommost empty row; first column.
Private Sub cmdAddData_Click()
' Collect user name, find the space between first and last names, and separate the names. UserName = InputBox("Enter the Program Name.", "Program Name") spaceLoc = InStr(1, UserName, " ") firstName = Left(UserName, spaceLoc - 1)
I have a excel sheet of data numbers which blongs a packet of inventory where i found number series like this:
Start Range End Range Qty 2101200 2101499 300
I have to draw this onto a series like 2101200 then 2101201 then 2010202 etc. but some time these numbers are in qty 30000 or more. I have questions
1- If any macro colud fill series suppose if write number in A2 and qty in B2 so it reads the qty of b2 and fill the series in A. If i write 1 in A2 and write 50 in B2 so the series should be auto fill 1 to 50.
My Second question is opposit of my above question.
2- if i have different number series in column a and i want them to be as start number in column b and end number in column c and qty in column d based like mentioned below example. Series [b]Start Range End Range Qty 1 1 1 1 3 3 3 1 5 5 7 3 6 7
Situation: I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets contain the same rules for data validation in a certain column (G).
Problem: If I want to add an item to the data validation lists I have to edit every single worksheet. I've tried making a seperate worksheet containing data validation items and using that as the source for the data validation rule, but Excel doesn't allow me to switch worksheets while defining the source.
In other words, I want to manage my data validation rules of multiple columns in multiple worksheets in one central location.
am currently a QE using the following data for my report generation: Date - Week - #Inspected - #Failed Want to pull data into ANOTHER WORKSHEET from this one wherein the format will be :
Month - #Inspected - #Failed
Indirectly want Excel to directly convert the data by input and categorize into Month in another worksheet (will be linked and would be great if according to the date it could calculate the week as well)...so if somebody inputs defects by date it should automatically cumulate into respective month.
Trying to Have a User Pick A response from the first drop down list before the second is activated and then after they choose from that list have an error message appear if the vlookup formula returns a #N/A. Here is the code in it's entirety the problem area is in the Elseif Pipe category Right now it doesn't bug but it also doesn't wait for a choice to be made it just spits out all the messages
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)
Dim Add As String, Size As String, Sch As String With Range("c11:c52"). Validation .Delete .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _ xlBetween, Formula1:="=MaterialList" .IgnoreBlank = True .InCellDropdown = True .InputTitle = "" .ErrorTitle = "" .InputMessage = "" .ErrorMessage = "" .ShowInput = True .ShowError = False End With
This is probably far easier then I am making it but I need to take the information that is in a textbox created through the control toolbox and copy and paste that information into a cell on different tab in the workbook. I have tried the infamous google and haven't been able to find much. The excel books that I have don't really touch on the control toolbox functions.
