Validate Textbox As Numeric But % Stopping Code

May 16, 2013

I've got a userform for pricing items and am having an issue when changing margin. I want to validate the user enters in .22 or 22%. The code places the decimal value in a worksheet just fine and runs back end calculations. I want to make sure no one fat-fingers .12b by accident so I came up with the following code. It seems to run fine, but if I tab over a couple of textbox (there are 4 Margin textboxes) it trips the coding for that textbox even if there was no change to the value.

Private Sub txtPDLaborMargin_AfterUpdate()
If IsNumeric(txtPDLaborMargin.Text) Then
Range("LaborMargin") = txtPDLaborMargin


how to validate the value is numeric

Cannot Keep Typing In Userform Textbox After Change Event

Jul 31, 2014

I have a userform that i have set the showmodal property to false.

This form has a list box that is populated with a huge list of items. I have a textbox in the userform that i use as a filter. so as the user types in something it filters the results in the listbox.

This was working fine but I added to the code to put a tooltip in when hovering over a item in the listbox. (using windows API to achieve).

The problem now is after i type one letter in the text box and it runs the change event it doesnt place the cursor at the end of the textbox anymore to continue typing.

I have tried setting focus to the textbox at the end of the event but nothing happens. I have searched all over the internet with no luck.

Populate Textbox On User Form

Feb 9, 2007

File attached

1) I have a user form that picks data from a spreadsheet - This is for scheduling a course. Works fine

2) I have a second form which should do 2 things:
a) On the bottom half of the form, select people from sheet 'Staff'. Works fine
b) On the top part, I would like to select a course (using combo box) and fromt this select a date for when the course has been scheduled (from sheet 'Scheduled Courses'). Courses are run a few times so have multiple entries. With some help, have done this and it works well

The problem is that when I select a date for a course using combobox2, I would like to populate the text box 6 & 7 with the cost of the course and the location. This goes wrong as it starts taking cost and location from the first cell. Eg when i select SPIN Selling, all is fine as this are the first courses. However If I take 7 Habits, it gives me costs for SPIN. If I take OM, it still gives me costs for SPIN. The dates in combo box 2 appear fine

LeapYear User Error Entry In TextBox

Jun 28, 2006

I'm learning 'on-the-job' to code VBA macros and about a week ago I asked a colleague to test (UK/Australian) date entry into a textbox on a userform. I wanted to ensure users can enter virtually any acceptable date format. About 10 minutes after sending the colleague the workbook, she advised that inputting 29 February and a year that is not a leap year had the effect of showing the textbox date in reverse and transferring that date to the workbook with the year indicated as "29" eg. 06-Feb-29.

Since then, I've spent a good deal of time seeking a correction to the code. I've tried scripts for 'If IsLeapYear' with the 'MonthLength = 29' etc, various other if statements and shuffling the original date order of my code. The unadulterated code is below. Does anyone have an answer (other than an Error Handler with a msgBox, informing the user that the date format is wrong)?

Private Sub txtMonth_BeforeUpdate(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Dim dDate As Date
dDate = DateSerial(Year(Calendar1), Month(Calendar1), Day(Calendar1))
dDate = txtMonth.Value
txtMonth = Format(dDate, "dd-mmm-yy")
On Error Goto EndMacro
Exit Sub
MsgBox "The date format you've entered is not a valid format!"

On Error Resume Next

End Sub

Numeric Validation Of User Form Textbox

Aug 13, 2008

I want one procedure that will validate the CURRENT textbox (not named by name, to allow for the procedure to be included in the change event of several different textboxes), to see if it is numeric (decimal places allowed) in Excel 2007.

I followed the instructions here: {url}, which describe exactly what I want to do. So I put the final procedure listed on that page (the dynamic validation code) into the private module of the user form object as listed below:

Private Sub pipes_Change()


End Sub

Private Sub OnlyNumbers()
'This procedure checks to see if the value
'of the current textbox is a number or not

If TypeName(Me.ActiveControl) = "TextBox" Then

If Not IsNumeric(.Value) And .Value <> vbNullString Then

MsgBox "Sorry, only numbers are allowed."

.Value = vbNullString

End If

End With

End If

End Sub

I then ran the form and typed a number into the "pipes" textbox that had been validated. A compile error is thrown: "Invalid or unqualified reference", highlighting the ".Value" portion of IsNumeric. I tried to remove certain parts of the code, such as the IF statement and the "And .Value <> vbnullstring", but nothing works. I have a feeling it is because this code was created for Excel 2003 (though I'm not certain).

User Form Frames Hindering Textbox Text

Oct 21, 2009

I have a question regarding frames and textboxes on a user form.

I have a user form that has a number of textboxes populated from the results two Comboboxes.

I decided to group some of the textboxes in frames for more logical viewing.
I grouped the textboxes, moved them, placed two frame controls on the form then, finished by replacing the grouped textboxes. No code was altered or added.

When I ran the form, only the Comboboxes were functional and the text boxes were blank.

There were no runtime errors or compile problems.

UserForm - Keep User In Textbox If They Made Format Input Error

Oct 27, 2012

I have a userfrom with a text box which is used to receive a telephone number from the user. The 'Event' code that checks the formatting of the telephone number is "tbCustTel_Exit". If my user enters a format other than what is acceptable for a tel number, they get an error message telling them to re-enter.

My problem is they still end up EXITING that text box they made a mistake in? How can I override them exiting the text box if they make a mistake - and keep them in the text box so they can try and re-enter the tel number again?

Formatting TextBox And Check Which TextBox Is The Active TextBox In The Loop

May 18, 2006

I am attempting to format some TextBoxes from within a For/Next loop. I need a way to check which TextBox is the active TextBox in the loop. Using i as the variable, I came up with this code snippet: Me.Controls("TB" & i).Text = Format("TB" & i, "mm/dd/yy")

If i = 3, this gives me in TextBox3 (which is called TB3) the text 'TB3' and not the value of what is in TB3. It has got to bo something simple, I just can't see it!!!

Stopping A Macro

Mar 22, 2007

In my main macro I have a line that makes it jump into a timer subroutine that starts the main macro every 30 seconds. However, I also have a line in the main macro that makes it jump into another subroutine at 2pm everyday that sends out emails. The problem is that if the timer starts the main macro again before the sending emails subroutine finishes, then it will only finish sending a portion of the emails before it jumps back into the main macro. Is there any way to stop my main macro once it recognizes that it needs to jump into the email sending subroutine, or a way to at least stop the timer subroutine?

the part of my code the jump into the sending emails subroutine and the timer subroutine look like this so far:

If timevalue(now()) >= timevalue("14:00:00") And timevalue(now()) < timevalue("14:00:31") _

Breakpoint Is Not Stopping Code

Dec 21, 2007

I have event procedures for the following form events: Before update, After Update, On Open, On Load and On Activate and I have added a breakpoint to every event.

However, despite breakpoints in all these pieces of code the form opens and closes without the code stopping to allow me to debug by manually stepping through the code.

Have I done something fundamentally wrong, I'm still a newbie at VBA?

Stopping A Loop Once Value Found

Oct 4, 2009

I have written the macro;

For i = 2 To FinalRow

If Cells(i, 1).Value = Range("A1") Then
Cells(i, 1).Select

End If
Next i

End Sub

And I was wondering if there was a way to end the Sub as soon as it gets to the Cell with the A1 value in it as opposed to just continuing through all the rows to the end of the sheet even after the right value has been found?

Application.OnTime Not Stopping

Nov 3, 2006

I am running a timer in XL using the Application .OnTime Method.

Everywhere I've looked tells me that the procedure to stop the timer is

Sub StopTimer()
On Error Resume Next
Application.OnTime earliesttime:=RunWhen, procedure:=cRunWhat, schedule:=False
End Sub

I have this code in with the timer, but when I hit F5 or go to Tools--->Macros--> and Run the StopTimer Macro the timer just keeps running.

how I can properly call this procedure and stop the timer?

Stopping An Endless Loop

I have the following VBA in the attatched spreadsheet (seperated so I could upload)

The only problem that I have is that I cannot stop the loop, it constantly keeps going round in a circle.

What im wanting to do is when the Date checked is the End date and the End Time has been checked, to move onto the next row and do it again until it gets to row 40.

Sub Calculate()
Dim CellNo As Integer
Dim CurrentDate As Date
Dim StartDate As Date
Dim EndDate As Date
Dim theDate As String
Dim c As Range
Dim i As Integer
Dim addDate As Integer
Dim DaysHoursSick As Date
Dim StartWorkTime As Date
Dim EndWorkTime As Date
Dim endmarker As String

I've only got this VBA working really under Wednesday so I can make sure it is right before adding it onto the other dates,

Application Ontime - Stopping It?

May 25, 2007

I'm using Application OnTime to fire a procedure every 30 mins. It works great, but the workbook tries to reopen itself when i close it (but not if i close excel entirely). I assume this is because I haven't stopped it anywhere. So I put a call to a procedure that has: Application.OnTime RunWhen, cRunWhat, , False

In the "Workbook_BeforeClose" event. This doesn't solve the problem. What am I missing?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
End Sub


Public RunWhen As Double
Public Const cRunIntervalSeconds = 1800 ' thirty mins
Public Const cRunWhat = "dothis"...............................

Stopping Text From Repeating At The End Of Spreadsheet

Jan 20, 2009

I am trying to stop this code from re-occurring at the end of the spreadsheet. There are two constants that will always appear as text, one is "blank" and the other is "Grand Total". I would prefer to use "Blank" if possible. The spread sheet varies in size from day to day. I have a range right now in use up to A700. I did this because when I originally put in a column formula, it ran until 20000 + rows down. Can someone please provide me with a formula that stops this code once it reaches the bottom of my spread sheet?
