Adjust Code From Cell Range Trigger To Button Trigger

Jul 1, 2014

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.

Macro To Move Data With Trigger Cell

Feb 21, 2010

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.

Trigger Macro Once On Data Change In Cell

Mar 8, 2008

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.

Run Macro After Cell Data Input

Jan 24, 2012

I want to run a macro that unhides 15 lines (line 20 to 35) when data is inputed on cell 'F6' and to run another macro called "search" (i have already finished this macro) which will fill in information on the unhidden lines from above.

Run A Macro Based On Value Input In A Cell

Jul 19, 2006

I am using data validation to restrict the number of Characters a user can input in a range of cells. The number of characters in this however can vary based on which selection they selected in a different cell.

To put this as an example, if the user selects "hello" in cell a1, the data validation would allow 10 letters in the cell range c1:c20. If the person selects "goodbye" in cell a1, then the validation would only allow 7 characters in cell range c1:c20. I have been using the worksheet Change function, however it updates the validation regardless of what cell is changed.

Highlighting Changes In Cell After Data Input Macro Run

Jun 27, 2013

I work for a marketing agency where technical savvy-ness is really limited. We analyze a lot of web page elements. I have a program that exports this data into a csv file and I've created a template for the user to add this sheet. This data is primarily text. I've created a button on another sheet that runs a macro that extracts data from the first sheet onto the second sheet in a particular format for ease of reading and editing it. That part is all good, this macro works and the button works. Now I'm trying to have it such when a person edits one of these cells, it highlights the changes on this newly sheet using VBA (the highlighting changes function just turned out to be too messy and buggy for what I want). I have this basic change macro that I have on the sheet currently:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Const WS_RANGE As String = "A1:H500"

On Error GoTo ws_exit:
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then
With Target
.Interior.ColorIndex = 30
End With
End If

Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

This works as well. However, my problem is that when I run the data button macro, of course excel reads this as a change to the cell and highlights it as a change before any actual changes are made. How can I have it so I run my data macro, and the cell changes are highlighted only *after* the user goes in to edit the text data plugged in from the data macro?

Trigger Filter With Cell Change

Nov 1, 2006

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.

Macro To Reference Cell But Still Allow Manual Input Override?

I have a situation where I need a macro to reference another cell in the sheet if the cell is left blank. If the user wants to edit the value, they have the option to manually input a value but if they decide to leave it blank, it autopopulates the referenced cell.

Cell Acts To Trigger Multiple Cells?

Jul 6, 2014

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.

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:


So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

Input Text In Given Cell After Any Input In An Area

Feb 28, 2007

I am just starting to get my feet a little damp with VBA and I am trying to make a macro that will act whenever any text is entered in any cell within a 3x3 square. Whenever any text is entered in any of those cells I would like it to enter a text ( "X" ) in a cell which is specified by a cell in the spreadsheet (this cell will output which cell the macro should write the text in in this format "A:1" or "C:3"). How can I make the program act only in reaction to the user entering thier text, and also, how can I get the macro to read A:1 and enter the text into that specific cell? Any help would be so awesome, the book I have is really difficult to navigate.

Excel 2007 :: Restrict Cell Input Based On Another Cell Value

Jan 22, 2013

I am working in both 2003 and 2007 Excel.

This is a simplified version of my worksheet:

I have two cells, A2 and B2. When I enter a numeric value into B2, I want it only allowed when certain text values are in A2. I.E.: Allow any value in B2, but only if A1 is either "SYDN or "ADEL".

Now using info found in an old post, I can achieve this with a combination of data validation and code:
=OR(A2="SYDN",A2="ADEL") for the validation and for the code:

[Code] ......

The only problem is I also need to reset B2 if A2 changes to invalid data as a result of some other input to that cell (A2). In other words if B2 is showing "1" already and A2 were to change from "SYDN" to say "LOND", then B2 needs to be cleared. If A2 changed to "ADEL" then it doesn't need to clear but it is ok if it does because it is fine to re-enter "1" into B2 again.

I have attempted to attach a sample worksheet : Xl0000003.xls‎

Input Data Then Clear Cell But Save To Another Cell?

Jan 29, 2014

I want to be able to see the average rating for each employee.. Is there a way to put in the rating from one survey and have it automatically add it another cell and then have it clear the first cell?

Here is an example of what I would like to do: Say we get 2 surveys with one rating of 5 and one rating of 10... If I input the 5 into cell Q4 and have it automatically put into cell R4 and then it gets deleted from Q4 but saved to R4... and then I can add the rating of 10 to Q4 and it automatically ads it to R4 and clears Q4 and totals R4 to an average of 7.5.

This way, with each new survey I can just input each rating to Q4 and have it cleared for the next rating and then have an average rating of all the surveys in R4... we do not need to keep track of how many ratings we are getting, just the average rating.

I have attached the excel sheet if you would like to take a look at what I am trying to do..

Barcode Input To Match Cell And Return Value Of Another Cell

Jul 25, 2014

I get a text file daily for routed deliveries containing a barcode, name, address and phone number that I convert into csv and then upload it into a route optimization software. after optimization is complete it has assigned packages to drivers and I export it to excel and print. My sorters are having a difficult time reading the addresses on the packages and assigning them to the proper driver, so I am trying to come up with a way.

My idea is that I can import the barcode as a custom field into the route optimizer and then when I export it, that barcode field will still be associated to that order. I want to scan the barcodes of the package into column C which will reference all of the barcodes in B and when it finds the match, it will return the value in A, the driver assigned to that particular package. This way my sorter will just have to scan the packages and throw it into the proper bag for the driver instead of having to visually scan the printed manifest to match.
