Stop Combobox Sub Running?

Mar 7, 2014

I have a large macro called SplitData, which takes a load of data and splits it and reformats it each month.

I have 4 Activex Control combo boxes on one sheet that are linked to a range...this range changes each month, so I blank out the range and then repopulate.

My problem is that when I blank out the range, it triggers the Private Sub ComboBox1_Change() and throws some errors because there is no data to select.

So, I was wondering if there is something I can set in my SpltData macro that will not run the ComboBox1_Change sub while the SplitData macro is running?

ComboBox Error "Could Not Get The List Property - Invalid Property Array Index" When Typing Out Of Range

Jun 9, 2006

I have a form with several combo boxes, and they function just the way I like as far as being able to pick from the list, or typing in them and having it show you the next available item in the list as you add letters. Whats happening that I would like to know how to deal with is... as soon as you type a letter that is not in my lookup range it generates an error. "Could not get the list property - Invalid property array index". I don't want people to be able to add to the list, but I would like a msgbox to pop up. Then allow them to go back to the box and try again.

Data Validation: How Can I Stop The User From Moving On?

Apr 3, 2009

I have attached a sheet that I'm having an issue with. Columns D and E on the Dim Calculator sheet have a data validation formula in the cell. It works in the sense that it pops up if they are outside the parameters that I want them to hit. However, if the user clicks the Cancel button they can just keep going on even though the entry in the cell is aganist the validation.

Example: Columns D and E cannot be larger than Column C. Currently now if Columns D or E are larger than Column C the validation error pops up. But I can just click on cancel and keep going. That is what I want to prevent.

Is there a way to grey out the cancel button?

Should I do something else within the validation itself?

Template Excel File - Stop User From Saving

Oct 3, 2008

I have a template excel file that is loaded with macros. When the file is opened, a userform opens and the user makes several different selections. Based on the selections, the excel file is populated with information and pictures. I want to make sure that the user does not accidentally save over the template file when he/she is finished with the document.

My original solution was: when the user opened the excel file, it would automatically save under a different name in a temporary location. This would stop the user from being able to overwrite the source file. The users were not happy because the excel file is very large and takes a long time to save.

on another method to stop the user from overwriting the source file? using code? or another method?

For User To Select From ComboBox

Jan 11, 2008

I want to force a user to select a value from a Combobox that I set up in a newly created worksheet from inside a macro - while the macro is still running. I have the code to create a new worksheet, size it accordingly, add a Combobox control, assign a range of values for the drop-down list, but do not know how to suspend the macro and force the user to make a selection from this Combobox before continuing. Not even sure if this can be done.

Get Chosen Value From User Form ComboBox

Sep 11, 2007

Right now I am constructing a macro so that upon exection, the user will be forced to select one of the dropdown menu options which are listed in a dynamic array. The dropdown menu should be in a popup of somekind created by the macro and not on any of the worksheets or charts. I would like to then assign the choice that the user makes to a variant. I have searched the web but not found what I am looking for and was hoping that someone could give me some phydocode that I can look at.
The restrictions that I am operating by do not allow me to place a combobox upon any of the worksheets which is what I find in all the examples posted online.

Match ListBox/ComboBox Entry As User Types

Oct 18, 2006

I have searched the forum but can't find an answer to my problem. I have a list of about 3000 streets, a sample of which follows:

ARBROATH ST
ARCOLA ST
ARGO PL
ARIES PL
ARMSTRONG AVE
ARTHUR AVE
ARVIN CT
ASHGROVE CR
ASHLEY GROVE CT
ASHWORTH AVE...................

I know how to populate a List Box, but rather than having to scroll through the entire lot I would like to just have to type in a few letters and the output only display streets that start with only those letters. For example, if I type in AS only the following appear in the listbox.

ASHGROVE CR
ASHLEY GROVE CT
ASHWORTH AVE........................

Typing And Adding More?

Dec 24, 2012

When I'm doing cells in a column, there are times where I start a word and it tries to complete the word based on what I wrote before. For example, I'll put Base I, Base II, Base III... etc.

How do I get it to add the word base, but then I can continue typing the numeral after it? I do not want to create another column after with the numeral. So as I type B, A, [click certain button and continue typing] II

Allow Typing But Not Pasting

Jul 12, 2007

On a sheet of my workbook, I need to allow typing but not pasting. I'm using Workbook, because I'd just as soon not allow pasting anywhere.

If the data is copied from within Excel, this seems to work:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

but if the data is copied from somewhere outside of Excel, it pastes it anyway.

Fast Typing With Keywords

Mar 1, 2007

I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet and basicly i'm inserting manually data from a lot of paper forms.

It isn't a dificult thing, but is boring, because I have to do more than 2000 forms per week!
I want to accelerate, and how to do that

Problem: "Address"! The Excel page that i'm working has a column to feel with Addresses manually, but I have a table with all correct Address names from the city that I'm working about in other page.

What I would like is when start typing some keyword from the Address cell, it could show me all the choises of input (based on the correct Address Table)

Excel, by default, show, by exact order, all the choises, already typed on the same collumn.
I don't want that.

- imagine I have the Table 1 (representing the table with all city adresses) with a collumn called 'Address' with:

A1 - Street ZXY
A2 - Avenue QWE
A3 - Street QWE
A4 - Avenue ZXY

when typing on another Table, if I write something like QWE show me the A2 and A3 to choose wich I'm going to feel, and the same to ZXY, showing the A1 and A4. Other thing, if I write QWE street may show A3 also. Keyword is what i'm talking about
