I have a set of data in a given range with one column indicating "priority" of 0, 1, 2, or 3 for each row. I would like to be able to allow users of the file to filter the data simply by changing the text of a given cell, or by choosing among filter options from a drop down. For example, I would label the control cell "show items up to priority:" and then let them enter 1, 2, or 3.
The "auto filter" option won't work because if they use the "sort" options in the drop down it will mess everything up. I would only want to use the auto-filter drop down if I could suppress the sorting options and the other filter options. (I'm after custom options of <4, <3, <2, <1).
Also, the advanced filter method doesn't seem to work well because users would apparently have to re-run the filter each time they want to change the criteria range value.
I've heard of macros that can be triggered based on changes to data in a given cell, but how is this done in this situation?
I guess programming a custom drop down box for selecting 0, 1, 2 or 3 would work just as well as having them type the number in. But I'm not sure how this could be done either.
I have an application that updates the text string in A1 every x minutes (time may vary). I'm trying to develop a toutine that will trigger a Macro/call a function/subroutine once only on each change of data (and then not trigger again until the next change...and must only trigger on change of data in this specific cell). So the timeline looks like this
start A1 = "Apples", Fire macro once
start + 10mins A1 = "Oranges", Fire Macro Once again
start + 25mins A1 = "Pears", Fire Macro Once again
Triggering the macro is no problem but constraining to one triggering is proving a problem (for me anyway) and is really holding up my application progress.
I have the code below that is two separate activities and I want to change the second activity from a cell trigger (Set KeyCells = Range("K42:AD42")) to a button trigger. I need to first to remain unchanged.
I'd be ok if this was just one macro that I could assign to a button but because its two and I need to write the second's to clicking a button I'm over my head.
Its occured to me while writing this that because it'll be a range of buttons I'll probably need to make each one an individual code? Is this the case? If so I may have to just keep this as it is.
I have a chart with 2 Y axis. I am attempting to write some code that will update both axis with the same max & min value that is triggered by the combobox selection. The code will update the axis but is not triggered by the combobox selection.
I have a user entering text into a textbox on my userform. The textbox is linked to a textbox change event. Unfortunately, the event is triggered as soon as the user enters the first character of their entry. I'm thinking that the textbox change event isn't the most appropriate for this scenario. What would I need to do to trigger the code (of the change event) with hitting ENTER when finished?
If no program (code) is running and Calculation is turned to ON, what expression could be placed into a cell that will change on its own that could necessarily and periodically trigger a change event subroutine. How can I trigger a change event when nothing is changing?
I have a situation where my code simply stops running so i need a change event to assess whether code is running (or not) and to issue a warning to the programmer that the code is, in fact, stalled. The change event subroutine has not only a warning system but a "timetorun" feature that will come back and warn again until the programmer can address the issue.
Unfortunately, I have to deal with this issue in a check and balance fashion because my many attempts to seek solutions to a stalled program (root cause) have failed.
If for example cell A1 begins empty with no data in it other than a formula and something occurs to change the state of cell A1 to a value which triggers a change in cell B1 (a variable), can I use this to fire a sheet change macro ????
Wish to trigger a macro on sheet change based on every cell in column C, is this even possible ???
Or, is a change in a variable (C1) for example, the same as that of a DIRECT user keyboard input for example ???
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim c As Range If Not Application.Intersect(Target, Columns(3)) Is Nothing Then Application.EnableEvents = False For Each c In Target
I am sure that a worksheet change would be the best way to go for this, but I am unsure how to test for this.
I am looking to prevent users from using a select set of colors for highlighting. If the user tries to highlight using one of these invalid colors, I would like to flag a message telling the user that this color is reserved and highlight the selection to the previous color.
The previous color may be a tricky part as I do not know if this can be done.
So, I have a worksheet with a bunch of combo boxes. The code for the worksheet is below. The issue I'm having is that anytime I drag and drop a cell anywhere on the page, every single control on the worksheet triggers. VB runs through all the code on the sheet, TWICE(I used the debugger extensively trying to find a solution), and causes dozens of successive re-calculations of the entire workbook, which has a couple of tables. This happens on any cell drag-drop on the worksheet, or when I click the command button on the screen.
I have no clue what is causing this. Even more bizarre, it seems to trigger a custom function which is located in a separate module, and isn't even utilized on the worksheet in question. I guess this is because it makes the whole workbook re-calculate?
I have a bit of code that calls a formatting sub depending on which cell is modified. It is triggered by the Worksheet_Change event, determines which cell is modified, and either calls the formatting sub or doesn't based on the location of the modified cell.
Some of the columns in the sheet have data validation with drop downs. If I select a value from the drop down, it doesn't trigger the Worksheet_Change. If I type a value into the same cell, it does.
This was apparently an issue in Excel '97, but supposedly fixed in '03?
I have a spreadsheet I use to track supplier information. On the second tab of the spreadsheet, I have a table that is auto-populated based on the first spreadsheet and is linked to a KPI reporting form that I run for each supplier every month. The information on the report changes as a supplier is picked using a simple data filter. I would like the supplier name on the KPI form to change to the supplier that is picked from the filter on the first spreadsheet.
I would like to change the greater than number to the value in cell 'I11' in sheet 'Linear Programming Data' and the less than number to the value in cell 'I12' in sheet 'Linear Programming Data'. The code I am using was done by recording a macro since I don't know how to code in vba.
Code: Sub Results2() ' Results2 Macro ' copy table filter power by greater than and less than Sheets("Finalizing Results 2").Select Cells.Select
Drop down list containing 5 stages of a typical sales cycle, i.e. client engaged, negotiation, prospect, Short-listed, Win/Close.
These are locate in column B and each cell in column B has a drop down list with these 5 options.
Now, based on which option is selected the corresponding cells in column C and D need to change. This change is defined as follows -
Cells in column C, need to change colour ( i.e. blue, orange or red)
Cells in column D, need to change to a percentage value (i.e. at intervals of 10%, 10%,20%, 30% ...etc to 100%)
Column C (corresponding cell i.e. if B3, implies change to C3 respectively). In this case cell colour needs to change to one of three colours listed above.
i.e. if cell in B2 has client engaged, C2 must show blue, Similarly if B2 has short-listed, C2 must show red.
Column D, Equally, depending on colour in Column C, the percentage must automatically populate.
0-30% = Blue 31-50% = Orange 51-100% = Red
I have used conditional formatting options on a trial and error for testing the above, but not getting much progress. I suspect due to the multiple changes and different simultaneous changes i.e. colour and text, a Macro is most likely needed? (I have limited knowledge of VBA).
In closing there are about 200 rows that need to have this capability. I.e. Contents of column B trigger respective cells in Column C and D.
I have a single workbook with five spreadsheets. My goal is to move data along a path (or work flow) from one sheet to the next by using a "trigger" pulldown menu choice.
Sheet1 = Prospects Sheet2 = New Sale Sheet3 = Upgrade Sale Sheet4 = Won Sheet5 = Lost Sheets 1, 2, and 3 use the same data layout for column A - K. Sheets 4 and 5 have the same A - K as above and also have columns L - R in common. The last column in sheet 1, 2 and 3 is a pulldown menu (New, Upgrade, Won, Lost).
Data rows on each sheet start at row 7.
The goal is to use the pulldown choice to remove the data from the current sheet (ex: Prospect) and add it to the next open row in the required sheet (ex: New or Upgrade). I also need to be able to make a similar move from New/Upgrade to Won or Lost.
I have many sheets which I am using the advanced filter to filter the data to a single summary sheet. Everthing works great with one exception. I have cell comments added with relevent info to to cell values. When the advanced filter is performed the cell comments are not transfered to the summary sheet with the cell values. Is there a method to filter the data to another sheet and keep the comments?
In the first picture the Pivot Table is showing the profit of each city in 2010 and 2012. Where I used Sort & Filter Largest to smallest, in order to display the cities with greatest profit.
But when I switch the values to `% of` year (Previous). I get the change from 2010 to 2012 in percentage. But my PROBLEM is when I want to Sort & Filter from Largest to Smallest, cause I want to show the cities that have had the greatest percentage change from 2010 to 2012. But the I only get the same cities, and when I look at ex. 'Gjovik' is has had a 125 % in change and should be in the top.
So how am I able to Sort & Filter from Largest to Smallest the cities with greatest change in percentage?
i have some existing code which is trigerred when anything is input into column c. The code then adds various information in another three columns. One of which pastes a vlookup formulae, and i would like this forumlae pasted into the column c cell which i initialy edited, in order to remove the requirement for one additional column.
The existing code i have is:
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) Dim MyText As String MyText = Environ("username") If Target.Cells.Column = 3 Then With Target If .Value "" Then .Offset(0, 2).Formula = "=VLOOKUP(D:D,'P:TAOffshoreTAOffshoreTreasuryRecsGeneralCommit ID''s for control Sheet - Do not move or delete[commit ids - DO NOT DELETE OR MOVE.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1:$B$65536,2,0)"
I have tried changing the offset to (0,0) or changing the offset to 'target = ', which does add in the vlookup but then the macro debugs at the 'If .Value "" Then' code?
What I want to achive is the colouring of the cells in columns A-L using the trigger of the "Y" character in colums J-L
So when a Y is put in column J the cells to the left and including column J change to green. Then when a Y is put into column K the cells to the left and including K turn yellow. Finally when a Y is entered in column L the cells to the left and including L turn the lovely shade of Pink. It is possible the process will go from a Y in column J to a Y in column L mising out column K but I don't suppose this will matter.
I used to have it working in office 2003 to a fashion but have not yet got my head around 2010
I want to trigger a macro that refreshes a pivot table but I only want to trigger the macro after 15 seconds. The reason is that I am pulling the source data from access mdb so I want only to refresh the data once the data is pulled.
