Switch Statement Is Too Long For VBA. To Make The Switch Statement Work Over Two Lines

Jan 6, 2009

I have created a very long switch statement, which is too long to be placed in one row in VBA. I have attempted to put a space and underscore at the end of one line and continue the statement on the row below by placing a comma at the start of the second line. VBA will accept my efforts, but when I run the statement in the immediate window, the following error appears.

"Invalid procedure call or argument"

I understand that there are certain rules where I can split a switch statement onto two lines, yet I do not know what they may be.

Switch Off Conditions In And Statement

Jan 15, 2010

I have multiple anded conditions both Boolean and numerical. For testing purposes, I wanted to be able to switch off individual numerical conditions in the If statement. It seemed like an easy matter that I could simply comment out the And statement of choice and recompile. When I tried this, I received a compile error.

Another option would be to use individual togglebuttons to selectively turn off the 5 numerical comparisons. I have no idea how to set that up.

how to do this with either commenting or togglebuttons?

The If statement
If OptionButton4.Value = True _
And ToggleButton1.Value = True _
And Range("G3").Value >= Range("N6").Value _
And Range("AV22").Value >= Range("AU22").Value _
And Range("E3").Value = "Long" _
And Range("G3").Value Range("BG7").Value _
And Range("H4").Value >= Range("L4").Value _
And TradeFound = False And _
DeletedFound = False Then

I've attached an example of what I am trying to achieve and an explanation as well. I'm trying to avoid the use of a macro as I don't understand them and I will need to modify the sheet later on which could cause problems. However, if a macro is the only solution, then I will have to make due with one.

Cannot Just Switch The Columns Around

Mar 17, 2006

I have created a database of names & addresses from a software program called "CLIP" into excel, which in turn will become a label mail merge in MS word consisting of 900-1000 customers (for a mass mailing).

The problem is, the names were created last, first and I would like to change them to first last. Is there a way to do that without manually typing them all in again?

The names are in one column, so I cannot just switch the columns around.

Getting A FALSE When Switch Between Two Examples?

Apr 11, 2014

The setup here is I have multiple codes for a product. Coding structure is as follows (options are contained in parantheses):

N -(T,P) - (5L,6,7,8) - (DFL,DJL,DBL,UEDF) - P - (1,6,9,16,19,1H,1H9) - (g,s,blank) - (a,blank)

Clearly, there are a ton of options. What I'm doing is screening those codes and breaking them down into their component parts.

ex) NT6UEDFP1a: N - T - 6 - UEDF - P - 1 - a
ex) NT6DFLP16: N - T - 6 - DFL - P - 16

I'm trying to do multiple if/then scenarios for each option. However, the way I have it now, I'm getting a FALSE when I switch between these two examples (the dfl works, the uedfp generates false). (there are other codes which is why the first line is there. I'm just having trouble with this particular "nt/np" group)

Number Format Switch

Aug 15, 2009

I have several phone numbers that I copy and paste from the web:

(888) 456-7890
(333) 234-5678

I need to switch all of them to just standard numbers: They should look like this:


I go to "format" - "cells" - "numbers" but nothing works. I wonder if any formula can do it. It should work for ALL THE LIST, I want something else than change them one by one by hand.

VBA Code To Switch Between 2 Workbooks

Apr 18, 2003

I have written VBA code to open a separate file and then copy back and forth between the two files. However, when I recorded, I got commands like the following:

Switch Between New Instance Windows?

Nov 15, 2011

Im having trouble switching between windows that are open in separate instances of excel.

I used to be able to switch easily between these workbooks when they were both being being run in the same instance of excel.

But since having to change it so the workbooks are opened in seperate instances, i cannot get it to work, the code just fails when it trys to activate the first window.

I currently have the below code:


Sub CloseAndSave()
Application.EnableEvents = True
'//Activate InfoHub workbook and put a tick in the checkbox.
Workbooks("403 InfoHub.xls").Activate
Sheets("HOME PAGE").ToggleButton1.Value = True


Is there anyway to do this?

Switch Between Active Workbooks?

Jun 20, 2012

I am working with Excel for Mac. This has presented a number of challenges but I have successfully handled them. I am having a problem though and would love some input. I have a workbook that contains a pivot table. The pivot table is based on "Sheet1" of my workbook. The user will hit a button on the pivot table spreadsheet and the first operation is to select a file from their computer. I am using a function called - MacScript to open the finder window and select the file. The file name (with full path) is stored in a variable called filepath. The file consists of a single sheet - Sheet1 and I select all and copy the cells. I then go back to the original workbook, select my worksheet with the source data for the pivot and I again select all and paste the new information over the old data. I have a named range called pivotsource that references the 9 columns that are required for the pivot table. What I would like to do now is go back to the original workbook and close it, do not save anything, just close it like nothing happened. I have tried to close it by using:

/* Workbooks(filepath).Activate

Since I had a large amount of data that is in the clipboard, I will also have to deal with the message coming up asking what I want to do with the clipboard. My bigger problem is that the activation of the filepath workbook doesn't work. How can I get back to the original workbook? I thought about the index of the workbooks but I don't know if the users will have other workbooks open at the same time. If they did, I could not reference it.

Macro: Switch Between The Two Worksheets

Jul 12, 2007

If I have an excel workbook open and then, select the side-by-side option to open another workbook, and I want to write a macro that will switch between the two - how can I do this? The problem is, I don't want it to switch by file names (one workbook constantly changes names), I just want it to switch between active workbook and inactive workbook.

Once I have the code to switch between active workbook and inactive workbook, how can I have my macro look at a cell and see if data is present and if so, drop down to the cell below.

Windows("Job Number Request form.xls").Activate
Windows("Backup Copy of 2007 Capex Job Log.xls").Activate
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

Switch Back To Previous Workbook

Nov 29, 2007

I have a macro that unprotects a worksheet copies data from that worksheet and pastes it into a newly created and saved workbook. However I have two problems

1) I'm attempting to copy the data from the first workbook by selecting all cells and then when switching to the new workbook, select all cells and the paste special (values) then paste special (formats). This works when recording the macro but when I attempt to run it it bombs out.

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, _
SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

2) How do I get the macro to switch back to the workbook it got its data from. The name of the source workbook varies and there may be from 2 to 15 workbooks open. Is there a previous active workbook command? or do I need to create some kkind of temporary value to hold the file name of the source workbook.

Can't Switch Tab Back In Multipage Userform

Nov 17, 2011

I have two pages in the userform. What I was trying to do is that certain textbox (txtDate) needs to be entered on the page1 before going to page2. The user can still select page2 however I want the vba to bring the page back to page1 if the data is missing.

Here is the code:

Private Sub MultiPage1_Change()
If MultiPage1.Value = 1 And txtDate = "" Then
MultiPage1.Value = 0
txtDate .BackColor = &H40C0
End If

It didn't work completely - the tab selection on top was on page1 however all the controls shown are still the controls under page2. I have to manulally click page1.

I also tried MultiPage1.Page(0).Enabled=True but it didn't work either.

Filtering Switch Off In Protected Cells?

Sep 7, 2013

I have a macro that turns off filtering option when it runs. What I want is for to first warn the user that rows have been filtered and the Macro will not run, then once the filters are switch off, the macro will run. It does the last bit at the moment but switches off the filtering of protected cells and once the macro has run the sheet can no longer be filtered .

Sub NewRowSQT()
Dim ans As String
ans = MsgBox("Ensure you have selected a cell in column B immediately below the section you wish to add to or the Macro will FAIL!", vbYesNo)
