In a userform i have created an textbox. The user types some text in it and after clicking an OK-Button this text must be copied to a cell To allow multiple lines (enter = new line in textbox) i have changed the textbox property EnterKeyBehavior to True. The problem is that after copying this textbox1.text to a cell in see square blocks in the cell.
I use the following code to copy the text into a cell:
Private Sub CommandButtonOK_Click()
Dim TextboxText As String
TextboxText = TextBox1.Text
ActiveCell.Value = TextboxText
how to avoid this  (should be like alt-enter in a cell)
Code: Private Sub cmdSearchButton_Click() Dim txtbox As String 'stores lookup value Dim x As Variant 'value for wwid txt box Dim ForeName As String Dim SurName As String Dim wwid As Variant Dim iPosition As Integer
Here is my code, it does a vlookup and if the persons name is not found it will split the text entered into forename and surname but when i try and add
I have a form that has three fields (1. Comments (TEXT), 2. Legacy_Comments (TEXT), 3, Comment date (DATE))
Now my users need to keep adding comments to the comment text box, and when they do it automatically adds the date they entered the comment in the Comment date box. Now my problem is that since they keep adding comments to the comment box, I need to keep track of these comments in the Legacy_Comments (Text box).
For example, the First time a user enters a comment into the (1) comment text box it auto populates the date in the comment date box, and then adds the comment and date to the Legacy_Comment box. the end result is (comment,4/3/2014 now lets say a user needs to add a comment to the comments box tomorrow - I want the legacy_Comment box to then read (comment, 4/3/2014; comment2, 4/4/2014, ...., comment(n),date(n)) OR it can be vice-verse, because I just need to keep track of the comments, I am not worried if the new comments are before or after older (yesterdays / the day before yesterdays comments)
How can I write a VBA code that will always add the new comment to the legacy_comment field, without deleting the comments that were entered previously?
Code: If isnull(me.comment.value) Then Exit Sub ElseIf me.comment.value = true Then me.comment_date.value = date me.legacy_comment.value = me.comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";" me.legacy_comment.value = me.legacy_comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";"
It adds the comment only the first time, but it does not concatenate the string from yesterday to the string to today. I do not care which order the comments are, meaning if I added a comment today it can be before OR after the comment from yesterday.
i run a Excel spreadsheet that adds payments that are made, and i have a row put there so i can make notes. sometimes these notes are quite long and if the cell to the left of it is empty the text will continue going across these cells and make my spreadsheet a real mess to understand. how do i make text stay only in it's given cell?
I have some text I wish to add some content to the front and back of it. i.e. the text in the cell is "18.104.22.168" and I want to add "http://" to the front of it and ":9999" to the back to it, so it looks like "http://22.214.171.124:9999" in a different cell.
I have text in one cell and I need a text box to show the text from that cell.
For example, if I have text in B2, on a text box I put the forumla =B2. The issue I'm experiencing is that the text box cuts off the text. There's no logic to why it cuts off the text, it's not limited to number of characters and I've played about with the margins and wrap texting, etc, all to no avail.
I've attached a photo of the worksheet to show what I'm experiencing. [URL] ..........
I write a daily status report that adds my daily comment to a cell with previous text in it. I then paste it in three other cells. This process is slow and tedious since the text in the cell is now becoming extremely long due to organizational and managerial restraints of the existing format. I use cut and paste and manual enter, a alt + enter, to space new comment. I would like to be able to enter the text in a cell and have it update the comment cell with the text in it and to update the text box. I have reviewed the forum and have yet to find the answer and use of how else to pose the questions.
I have a very long spreadsheet with about 3000 rows. lets say for simplicity that column A contains a list of product ID numbers. I am looking for some macro code where I can just type in the product ID into a textbox, then hit enter (or a 'go' button) and then the cursor will move to the cell containing the part number.
I know Ctrl+F will do the job for me, but because of the frequency that I do these searches, a text input box would be easier still.
The nearest solution I could find was the one here Find text but its a bit 'overkill' for my needs.
I have a list of numbers in column A (i.e.: 1234)and I need them to show up in column B in with an "*" asterisk on each side on the number (i.e.: *1234*). So I was using "=a1" in cell B1, is there away to add the asterisk to the formula as text?
I was able to find the syntax to add a cell within a text string but I am having a formatting problem. The cells which I am adding were using formulas that left decimals. Although I turned off all of the decimals on the cell, the values when I used the cell within the text string included all of the decimals and in some cases 6 or more decimal places. Is there a way to keep the formatting of the cell?
I wish for a text box (drawn Text Box, from the "Shapes" tab) to conditionally change its background color based on whether a cell in a different sheet says "Online" - in which case it should be green, or "Offline" - in which case it should be red. So far, the code that I have that doesnt work at all, which I'm not even sure where to place (I tried in the Workbook - Open?), is the following:
I also need to do this for a total of 9 Text Boxes, if that changes anything.
Dim x& With Sheets("PLAYERS") For x = 1 To .Cells(Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row If .Cells(x, "C").Value = Me.ComboBox1.Value Then _ Me.TextBox3.Value = .Cells(x, "D").Value Me.TextBox26.Value = .Cells(x, "E").Value
