Textbox Click Stops Event Code Running

Aug 26, 2007

I have a textbox from the drawing toolbar. When someone changes a cell then clicks in the textbox, Worksheet_Change does not run. If they double click in the cell, that's OK I can capture that event and protect the sheet, stopping them clicking in it. But if they just start typing in the cell, I can't capture that. I have seen some API code which captures keypresses, but it is not practical to use as it loops repeatedly. I could lock the textbox and have the user do something to unlock it, but this is a last resort.

Input Box Stops Rest Of Code Running

Jul 18, 2014

I usually just use macros to clean up Data from non-excel sources. So I wrote a macro to do this, but the process requires a date to be added, so attempted to do this via an input box. The input box works, but the code doesn't, clicking the button to which the macro is bound spits out an error 91 (object out of bounds?) when it hits the search function right after the inputbox code. Both bits work as intended separately, so I guess it's just some moronic formatting error on my behalf.

Prevent Event Code Running

Oct 19, 2007

I know how to enable/disable events using VBA code, however is there an option within excel to turn it on/off? My problem is this...

At the beginning of my code I disable events and at the end I enable it again (I need to do this to avoid being caught in a loop). However something is going wrong somewhere in my code and the code stops halfway through. I'm trying to test sections of the code, but I often inadvertently stop the code without enabling the events again. Therefore I can't get my VBA to execute again unless I close excel down and restart. This is a pain as I have to find my place in the code again!

Run SAME Code For Different Ranges Using Before Double Click Event

Apr 4, 2013

code to have check marks appear in multiple non-adjacent columns in a worksheet by double clicking.

The code I am using works for a single column : (The named range "Checkboxes1" is D4:D100)

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(Target, Range("Checkboxes1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub


However I also need the code to work on two other named ranges "Checkboxes2" (E4:E100) and "Checkboxes3" is G4:G100.

Prevent Event Code Running When Other Workbooks Open

Aug 23, 2008

I am having difficulties with my Worksheet_Activate() macro. It works great within workbook1 when it is only workbook1 open - but when I open another workbook2, the macro stills runs, presumably because Sheet1 of workbook1 is still activated as well as the newly activated sheet in workbook2.

Is there a way to ensure that only 1 worksheet of 1 workbook is activated at a time? Or that sheet1 of workbook1 is deactivated when workbook2 is opened/clicked on? I need my Worksheet_Deactivate macro to run to get rid of my Worksheet_Activate macro (which runs an application that resets the function of keyboards keys). Otherwise moving around workbook2 is a nightmare. When I navigate back to workbook1 while workbook2 is still open, I still want sheet1 of workbook1 to be activated and my macro to run .

TextBox Triggers A Code On The Exit Event

Dec 12, 2008

I have a Userform with a textbox1 and a commandbutton. TextBox1 triggers a code on the exit event. CommandButton1 simply unloads the UserForm. If a user enters data in the textbox, but does not exit and instead clicks the commandbutton to unload the UserForm, the exit event code is still triggered and then for some reason the commandbutton no longer responds to being clicked. I can't seem to find a way around this.

If the commandbutton is clicked, I simply want the UserForm to be unloaded and the exit event for the textbox ignored

ActiveX Click Control--STOPS When On Another Sheet

Nov 23, 2007

RE: Macro ActiveX Click Control--It stops when on another sheet

Macro runs OK when run from menu.

An activeX click button was put on sheet B.

Right click the control, View Code, Paste in code from macro, then click button.

It runs the part of the macro that applies to sheet B, goes to previous sheet A, and then stops. The range select line for the named range on sheet A is highlighted in yellow. It stops when selecting any range or cell on sheet A, like B2.

Any idea why this code does not work on sheet A when ActiveX button is on sheet B? Is there someplace else that the control can go? Using Excel 2000.

See part of code below, which starts on sheet B:

' Macro recorded 11/22/2007

Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("T2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
Range("FormBase").Select (STOPS HERE)
FormBase is a named dynamic range

I have a Macro that changes the background colour cells dependant on the value in another cell, all seems ok but when it runs it scrolls the page as it shades the cells and then exits leaving the sheet where it scrolled to.

Macros Running Twice: SaveAs Macro Stops

Jan 28, 2009

I have been working on some Macros. I am compiling a macro that runs other macros. I have two noticeable problems.

1 - My SaveAs macro runs fine by itself. But when called or ran by another macro, (which calls more than one macro) the SaveAs macro it stops.

2- Many of my macros, when ran by another macro (which runs more than one macro) cycles through twice.

My specific question is about no. 2 and the following are the individual macros and the macro that runs them.

Excel 2010 :: OnTime Macro Stops Running When Window Minimized

Dec 12, 2013

I am using Excel2010.

My sheet displays values collected from a database via an AddIn. The values are updated by pressing CTRL+G (AddIn function).

I have an OnTime macro running SendKeys "^G" to update the values every minute. When the values exceed a certain limit, a sound is played from a custom Alarm function.

This all works as long as the excel window is active.

But if excel is minimized or another window is opened, the values stop updating until Excel is active again.

When the values dont update the sound is not played and that defeats the purpose of the sheet.

Userform Textbox Event That Fires After I Exit The Textbox

Feb 2, 2010

I need a userform textbox event that fires after I tab or click out of the textbox. Going by the list of options:Beforedragover, BeforeDroporPaste, Change, DblClick, DropButtonClick, Error, Keydown, Keypress, keyup, mousedown, mousemove, mouseup.

I can't figure out which one will do what I want. The change event happens instantaneously which doesn't work. I need to fire off the event when my focus leaves the textbox.

Macro Stops Running The Macro Completely And Hangs In The Middle

Jul 3, 2007

Here in our department we made a pretty elaborate macro that takes a report and sorts them out to 17 different sheets in a one workbook. This Macro pulls a file from a specific location on our server and then opens the CSV sorts it out color codes all the important information and saves it back onto the server under you specific initials.

They are four PC's along with our Managers laptop that run this Macro daily.

About 3 weeks ago my Managers laptop stops running the Macro completely and hangs in the middle of the whole thing. Eventually crashing Excel.

We try to remove the modules and re-import them back into the personal macro workbork but this does not work. The Macro's did not change and still fully function on the other four desktops to this day.

I uninstall Office on my Managers laptop and reinstall. Import the Modules again and still hangs up in very same spot it did 3 weeks ago.

I've tried to lower the macro security to the lowest level also and I've still had no luck with this laptop. I don't understand. The Macro's function perfectly on other PC's but will not function on this laptop.

VBA Code Stops

My code below works great all the way to the end. When the last message box comes up, If the user chooses Yes. I want them to be directed to the sheet "C123". But currently it just stays on the sheet that I named "Home".

What am I missing here?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Log")

'find first empty row in database
iRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1) _
.End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row

'check for a Reason Code
If Trim(Me.ComboBox2.Value) = "" Then
MsgBox "Please enter a reason code and ensure that date is correct!"

VBA - Click And Hold Event

Apr 11, 2013

I am creating a spreadsheet that has various form controls, etc... in it and I wanted to create a "help" macro. I have a small Question Mark icon and I want the user to be able to click the icon and have little text boxes appear on the excel sheet with instructions.

I was wondering instead of making a toggle event where the user clicks once to turn on and again to turn off, if there was a way that the user could click and hold on the icon to make my text boxes visible....and when the user releases they disappear.

ListBox Click Event Not Working

Feb 14, 2013

I currently have a set of ListBox controls on a worksheet tab. They are all configured as multi-select and i have the values populated via the ListFillRange properties. Each listbox has an '{All}' option; when the user clicks on this value I want to de-select all other previously selected values. The code for this is straightforward enough, but I cannot get it to fire using the _Click event. Why this is not working?

Additionally, I attempted to use the _Change event but quickly got caught in recursive loops which obviously is not going to cut it.

Looping Within Double Click Event

Jun 13, 2007

I would like to create a macro in which, when the user double clicks on a cell, that cell will be shaded yellow and other cells within the Workbook containing the same value as that cell will be crossed out. I have come up with the below code, but it doesn't work correctly. Any ideas on what I have done wrong? Would also like it to not cross out the cell the user double clicked on.

Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim wk As Worksheet
Dim selectedName As String
selectedName = ActiveCell.Value

With Selection.Interior
.ColorIndex = 6
.Pattern = xlSolid
End With

For Each wk In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

For i = 200 To 2 Step -1
If ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 2).Value = selectedName Then
ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 2).Font.Strikethrough = True
End If
End Sub
