Test/Check If Shape Exists On Worksheet

Aug 31, 2006

I'm creating a macro to select, modify dimensions and place shapes on a excel sheet. (I'm talking about pictures insered and stocked in a specific sheet of my workbook)
When the users insert a new picture he has to set a name for each of them.
A combobox contain the choices, when an item is selected, the macro identify, size and place the corresponding picture.

But I have a bug if a shape doesn't exist when I try to select it :

Sheets("fiche de controle").Select
'select the sheet with the pictures
ActiveSheet.Shapes(Item_old).Select
'select the shapes "Item_Old"
Item_Old is a variable corresponding to the picture name.

If the user made a typo, I have a bug.
Someone knows how to test if the shapes exist to display a meesage if not ?
Or somethig to avoid this kind of bug ?

Conditional Check To See If A Worksheet Exists

Jul 3, 2007

I am writing a macro which first needs to look and see if a certain worksheet exists. If it doesn't then I want it to create it but if it does I first want it to delete the sheet then create a blank one with the same name. At trhe moment I have this but it is scrappy and doesn't work very well:

On Error Goto AddSheet
If Sheets("MONEYSHEET").Activate Then Goto Data

AddSheet:
Sheets.Add before:=Sheets("LOOKUPSHEET")
ActiveSheet.Name = "MONEYSHEET"

Data:

It also does not delete the sheet if it already exists, just edits the existing one.

Check If Value Exists In Range For Worksheet Filtering

Nov 3, 2009

I'm looking to use the value from a series of dropdowns (made via data validation lists).

Cell AM5 is a dropdown of named ranges made form a seperate sheet
Cell AO5 is a dropdown that uses '=INDIRECT(AM5) to lookup the values in the named range.

I need cell AO5's value to be used to filter rows in the current worksheet. The current problem is when i use the first dropdown in AM5 it still displays the last value, untill i use the dropdown to select a new one. This value typically will not be found and i do not want my code to execute in these cases.

Test If Sheet Exists ..

May 14, 2007

After going though the archives, I could not find how to test for an entry that does not have a sheet to be pasted into. I have a series of worksheets with the month-year for tab labels. The format for these tab labels is ("mmm-yy"). My code will place the new entry into the first available row of the sheet with the same month-year as the entry. I can enter any item with any date in any order and as long as there is a sheet with the same month-year, the entry will be placed into the correct sheet. Temporarily, when I need to add a new month, I click on a CommandButton that uses this code (located in a general module) to make the new sheet:

Test Whether Or Not A Named SeriesCollection Exists?

Apr 20, 2014

How to see if a SeriesCollection that has been named exists so when the corresponding toggle button it clicked it turns on or off the correct corresponding dataseries.

When I create a series I use something like:

[Code] ............

Where the range "tblJim[Quizes]" contains the quiz scores which are the data series pointes and "=Data!$C$6:$C$35" has the respective dates.

When that toggle button is clicked I need to test if the SeriesCollection "Jim" exists so if it does I can delete it and if not, create it.

Also, as much as I hate to multi-subject but usually do anyway, I am wondering if there is good example of doing the same ends by a different strategy - a chart with everyone on it and by applying data filters to the dataset I would turn on and off people's data.

Sheet Exists Test Not Working

Feb 16, 2010

Got most of this code from the web and I can't get it to work. The part I added was the array and loop bit. As a test I specifically renamed one of the sheets in the file to be something NOT in the array, but it still goes through like it exists (I.e. shexist=True). What did I miss?

Dim wsname As String, shexist As Boolean
myarray = Array("Statement of Values", "Vehicle", "Driver Info.", "Revenues by Discipline", "Revenues Geographically", "Employee-Payroll Info. CDN & US", "U.S. Payroll", "Employee-Payroll Info. FOREIGN")
For i = 0 To WorksheetFunction.CountA(myarray) - 1
shexist = False
On Error Resume Next
wsname = myarray(i)
shexist = CBool(Len(ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Item(wsname).Name))
On Error GoTo 0
If shexist = False Then
MsgBox "The worksheet '" & wsname & "' does not exist in this file or has been renamed." & _
vbCr & "Please check the file and try again.", vbExclamation, "Consolidate"
GoTo THEEND

Formula: Look/Check If Value Exists

Oct 19, 2006

I got a pivot table that when selected will give me a value (actually its an ID number) I want in H3. I then got a list of values outside of the pivot table in column J. If H3 matched any of the values in column J, I need a “Warning”, if not “OK”. I have been using the formula =IF(H3=J3,"OK","WARNING") to match selected cells (H3 with J3) but cant get it to work to look down the column list. The OK or Warning is in cell F34 out of arms way!

The problem I have is I can't figure out how to incorporate error checking if the sheet already exists.

What I would like is a message stating that the sheet exists and allow the user to make required changes on the userform.

Check If An Entry Exists In A Woksheet

Jan 29, 2010

I have a huge database consisting of zipped file names which i created by importing the directory listing into excel. The zipped files contain two files each an mp3 and a correspondent cdg file (karaoke files).

I continue to add new disks (as I acquire them) to my collection. the trouble is that new disks have some songs already in my collection and I do not want to waste space in hard drive with duplicates. The existing data is arranged in a worksheet by columns as follows:

Discnumber | track number| artist | song name | path | complete file name

what I would like to do is to check the ** listing after import it to excel in the same format (i can do this part ) and then check it against the 10,000 plus entries that i have if the artist-song name combination already exists in the data. If so return the row in a separate worksheet or pivot table so that i can check it. this way I would only save the songs I do not have in my hard drive thus avoiding duplicates and saving precious space.

Check If Directory Exists Before Save

Oct 2, 2007

I am looking to see if a directory exists, and if it does, to save a file in it, otherwise create it, then save the file. My IsFileThere function works fine on files, but does not detect directories. The len(Dir(Filename)) statement always returns a 0, with the Dir statement always simply populating with "". It works fine on filenames - so can anyone tell me why it does not pick up directories?
Shouldn't the Dir function on a directory name return "."? I have excerpted some of my code to include here: Global Const StoredJobsSubdirectory = "Jobs"

Dim AppPath As String: AppPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
'other code in here - activeworkbook changed, hence previous line
If IsFileThere(AppPath & "" & StoredJobsSubdirectory) Then
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:=AppPath & "" & StoredJobsSubdirectory & _
"" & NameString & ".xls"
Else
MkDir AppPath & "" & StoredJobsSubdirectory
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:=AppPath & "" & StoredJobsSubdirectory & _
"" & NameString & ".xls"

Check Workbook Exists Before Opening

Oct 7, 2007

I know this is my third thread, but I have made sure that I have trawled through other threads before posting. I have created some VBA to collect data from multiple workbooks and paste them into one workbook, Basically the copy and paste script runs according to how many tabs are in the summary workbook because each tab ( sheet) is essentially a condensed version of a workbook. Unfortunately some workbooks I am getting the info from don't have the right data that the copy and paste program is looking for or sometimes the document doesn't exist, is there anyway of telling my VBA to pass this tab if the document doesn't exist instead of throwing up a VBA debug error?

How To Check If Value Exists In Pivot Table Before Filtering For It

Sep 12, 2013

right now, formula is simple as follows

Code:
Sheets("Shift Premium").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable3").PivotFields("DT_REPORT_DATE"). _
ClearAllFilters
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable3").PivotFields("DT_REPORT_DATE"). _
CurrentPage = myDate

The idea is that the pivot table always displays yesterdays data.

However, there may not be any data for that day, so when i tell the macro to filter for it, I get an error.

My question is, how could I formulate some sort of iferror statement so that if yesterdays date isnt in the filter list, then it does nothing (by default leaving the filter on last populated date)?
