Stop Macro: Button To Hit Or Better Just Some Keys To Hit To Stop It Without Using The Ctrl+alt+del Which Closes Everything

Dec 13, 2006

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.

Stop Macro Button From Printing

Jan 27, 2008

I made six macros, then I inserted a row at "A1" and created a box icon for each and assigned the macros. I went to the properties and told them not to print. Now I set my print range from "A3: J10" and they still print and show up in the print preview also.

Macro To Paste Values Instead Of Formula When User Uses Ctrl-C And Ctrl-V (no Command Button)

Jun 10, 2013

I was thinking of how the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro can be used to paste values instead of formula when the user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V. Instead of assigning a macro to a command button for user to activate.

Suppose I have a worksheet where the range ("D7:D56") is where I would want the user to paste his values in it.
I have to factor in the possibility that these values have formulas attached to them, and that the user is not tech-savvy enough to know about the "paste special --> values" functionality of excel, and chooses to use the Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V method instead.

What then appears are ####### which might alarm the user.

Neither would we want the user to press a button (which we can assign the xlpastevalues macro as an alternative) as that adds an extra step for the user. There is also a chance the user might not use the button, or overlooked it.

Is it possible to use the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro, or sth similar, to paste values instead of formula when user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V?

Prevent Code Loop Interruption By Esc Or Ctrl+Break Keys

Nov 18, 2009

The code itself functions as desired however i am getting the vba message "code execution has been interupted". However if i comment out the line

ActiveSheet. Range("Y6:BC6").Delete Shift:=xlUp. Then all is well - so i'd say that is the culprit.

Sub Test()
If Left(ActiveSheet.Name, 5) = "query" Then
Dim intRow As Integer
intRow = ActiveSheet.Range("Y4").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).Row

If intRow > 25 Then
ActiveSheet.Range("Y6:BC6").Delete Shift:=xlUp
intRow = intRow - 1
End If
' Runner 1
ActiveSheet.Range("Y" & intRow).Value = ActiveSheet.Range("A5").Value
ActiveSheet.Range("Z" & intRow).Value = ActiveSheet.Range("M4").Value...................

Macro To Stop At A Certain Row,

Mar 26, 2009

If you run it now, ctrl t, it produces letters and changes alphabets as it hits a yellow box. If i change or add a yellow box, the letters change fine. The macro works perfectly, but instead of inputting the range or K3 to what ever, i would like to to run this macro and stop once it sees the row with the sort number of 4. ( this changes row postion depending on which sheet im working on, this is the problem).

Macro To Stop Running At Last Row

Aug 10, 2009

I have a spreadsheet containing a macro to automatically sum values from week to week and display the max/min and average. This is almost fully working. The problem I have is the macro copies the sum formula down the page and doesn't stop at the last row. It always adds one or two extra rows. The formula should stop at row 77 however this does not happen and therefore the sum keeps going. Which in turn, distorts the max/min figures.

Get Macro To Repeat Itself Then Stop?

Mar 13, 2012

I'm trying to create a macro to input information into a cell then repeat until the information stops.

So say I have 10 rows of information that fill up A1:D10. in E1:E10 I'd like a macro to insert some data into E1 then go to E2 and do the same until the end and then stop. So since A11:D11 would be blank the formula would just stop.

I actually work on 100's of cells a day and this is for a bigger project I'm trying to put together or I would just drag.

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?

Check Headers And Stop Next Macro If Its Different?

Aug 11, 2013

I did not want to bother you again but I have a problem that I can not solve it because my knowledge in vba etc, are limited and could not become to find with Macro Recorder.Usually I solve the problems on my own by searching on Google and experimenting with ready Macros and Macro Recorder.

I have an excel file with a macro and I want before this macro launched, to run another macro that can check if the headers have the correct name and in its correct position. The headers is in first Row.

If are not in the correct position or if it doesn't exist or if not have the correct name, then the process of the next macro be stopped and of course be informed that there is a problem.But if Is everything okay, then proceed to the next macro and be informed that Is everything okay.

I have attached a Sample file with the headers i'm using.

Stop Macro Functioning On Sheet1

Dec 16, 2008

how to stop macros running on a particular worksheet within a workbook. I have a workbook monitoring vehicle faults with a control sheet. The control sheet displays the reg no and a "traffic light" indicator highlighting faults next to the reg no. Traffic light is turned red and green by If blank control. Each vehicle has a worksheet where faults can be recorded and a menu bar at the bottom of the screen operates numerous macros to "email worksheet"-"clear and copy to history" etc etc. The menu bar though can also be viewed and operated while in the control sheet. If a macro is activated within the control sheet it destroys it as it was not designed the same as the worksheets. Can I programme the menu to be inactive when in the control sheet OR that the menu will only appear when in every other sheet.

Stop Sheet Calculation During A Macro.

Aug 20, 2009

Example: I have Sheet 2 set to autocalculate on activate using vb. So when you click on that tab "Sheet 2" it will autocalculate.

My Question is, I have another macro that is copying information between Sheet 1 and Sheet 2. And I don't want calculation to occur during the macro but since it has to select Sheet 2 it performs the autocalculate. Do I have any options to prevent the calculation from occuring when I run my copy paste macro? I only want it to autocalculate when the user selects sheet 2

Stop And Restart Macro(s) Programatically

Jan 20, 2010

I've got a series of macros in place which, essentially, download several CSV files into a temp directory, then opens each and copies the data into a single workbook (one sheet).

What happens is that the some number of the sheets don't actually open until the macro stops. I've tried using the wait (Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:10")) and sleep functions, but it's not quite doing what I want.

What I'd LIKE to do is have the macro actually STOP processing for 10 seconds, then proceed (or start a new macro).

I've also tried putting the wait behind a button in a userform, which is non modal... the csv files open until the user clicks the button.

Stop Macro Execution From UserForm

Jun 7, 2013

On a worksheet I have a command button that displays a ConfigureCatalog form.

Public StopRequested as Boolean

'Worksheet Command Button will display the Configure Catalog Form
Private Sub CmdConfigure_Click()
CatalogConfigForm.Show vbModeless
End Sub

The ConfigureCatalog userform has two Command Buttons: cmdRebuildCatalog, and cmdStop. RebuildDSWCatalog is a macro that reads and analyzes just over 35,000 records and updates other worksheets. As it runs, it repaints the CatalogConfigForm with a progress message every 100 records. It can run for about 3 minutes. I want to provide a "STOP" button that will allow the user to interrupt the RebuildDSWCatalog macro and return control to the user.

Private Sub cmdRebuildCatalog_Click()
StopRequested = False
Call RebuildDSWCatalog
End Sub

Private Sub cmdStop_Click()
StopRequested = True
End Sub

While processing the 35,000 records, I want the RebuildDSWCatalog macro to check whether StopRequested has been set to TRUE prior to processing the record. If StopRequested = TRUE, I want to drop out of the macro.

Public Sub RebuildDSWCatalog()
StopRequested = FALSE
For DSWRecord = DSWStart To DSWCount
If StopRequested = True Then

[Code] ....

Problem is that once the RebuildDSWCatalog macro starts running, the STOP command button never seems to get the focus back. All other input is inhibited until the macro ends.

It just ignores that I'm hitting that STOP button. In fact, the button doesn't visibly respond at all until RebuildDSWCatalog finishes processing all 35,000 records.

Macro Stop The Delete Process

Oct 12, 2007

I am trying to speed up this macro, ive already tried turning screenupdating and calculation off, but it still takes forever, and I dont understand why.

The code is basically searching for a given string in column E. There are about 9000 lines to my sheet, which shouldnt take more than a 30 seconds to a minute to complete.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

For MY_ROWS = Range("E12000").End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
If Range("E" & MY_ROWS).Value UserForm1.ComboBox1.Value Then
Range("A" & MY_ROWS & ":E" & MY_ROWS).Delete (xlUp)
End If

Also anyone know how to add another condition to make the macro stop the delete process at lets say Range("a1:e8")?

Can't Stop Macro Running At Set Time

Apr 28, 2006

I wanted to run a macro at 08:00 each day. I tested the macro would auto start and run, and set the test to start at 13:00.

In the Private module of the Workbook I put

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application .OnTime TimeValue("08:00:00"), "MyMacro"
End Sub

and in a standard module

Sub TestTimeMacro()
Application.OnTime TimeValue("08:00:00"), "MyMacro"
End Sub

Initially I had the TimeValue set as 13:00:00. The test worked OK so I changed the timevalue to 08:00:00.

The macro now runs at 08:00 and 13:00.

How do I stop the 13:00 event?

Macro Stop Working With No Error

Jul 24, 2006

I have wrote a simple macro/ function that used to work before I decided to improve it. When I run the macro, I can step F8 until the before last line in the following code

Function bla() As Boolean
Set rCell = Cells(1, 1)
If rCell.Value <> "" Then
x = rCell.Value * 0.02 'Works
rCell.Value = rCell.Value - x 'Doesn't work
End If
bla = False
End Function

Excel does stop running the macro, but it doesn't show any error so I don't know what to fix.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create new Excel document
2. Type any number in the very first cell
3. Open VBA, add module and copy above function
4. Type in another cell "=bla()"
