Type Conversion Errors In VBA Code

Sep 5, 2007

I have an existing code that runs almost flawlessly but I am running in to formatting cells error (or at least I think that is the problem).

For example, here is a line of code where my error lies:

If Worksheets(FirstSheet).Cells(Counter, ColtoMove) = MoveIf Then

If I put my cursor on MoveIf it shows the expect number of 4500016239…….BUT it errors!

When I step through the code and go to the worksheet (or go to the left side of the = in the above code the data in the cell is “4.5E+09“.

I’ve attempted to change the formatting of this cell range to “Text” by the following With statement:

With Worksheets("CreateOrderFormsData")
.Range("AC:AC").NumberFormat = "Text"
End With

Note: if I verify the cells formatting after the above code is ran by rt click on the cell, format cells the Number field is set to “CUSTOM” and the Type: field is set to “TEXT”. Is this the problem? Please read on.

But that did not seem to do the trick…..actually if I now go to the left of the = again (which is now set to text) the data is “###########” in the cell, in the formula bar the number is the expected 4500016239 though but the CODE STILL FAILS!

Am I on the right track…..can anyone assist with this error please?

Date Conversion And Use A Variable Of Type Long As A Search Criteria

Jul 22, 2008

How to assign a variable of type Long to the below code.

1) Dim searchField as LOng
ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200=""" & searchField & """,$C$2:C$200))"

2) ActiveSheet.Range("N2").FormulaArray = "=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$200= searchField,$C$2:C$200))"
1) code failed because I want the variable searchField to have a data type of LONG.

2) code failed because it seems like excel thought the search criteria is of same searchField.

How to convert date to general format and store it in a variable of data type Long. I.E if I convert 3/15/2008(data type of Date) to data type of General, it should be 39522. What is the VBA code for doing this conversion?

Before Close Code Errors When Closing From Other Workbooks

Nov 21, 2006

I have a workbook which includes a simple set of options on closing such as selecting the front sheet, restoring scrollbars and saving the workbook. To avoid problems with subscripts out of range I am using the ThisWorkbook statement to close the workbook.

This works fine and causes the workbook to close when close is clicked on any excel window. The problem is that excel falls over when it tries to resume closing the other workbooks. I am given (ironically) an error saying "excel has encountered a problem and needs to close". Does anyone know how to work around this?

My code is below:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)

Call Toolbars9(True)
With ActiveWindow
.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True
.DisplayWorkbookTabs = True
End With

Running Simple VBA Code Causing Screen Errors

Nov 30, 2009

I have a rather large workbook (30 sheets, 10MB) that has one worksheet with many INDIRECT functions in it (pulling data from the same file, different tabs). I am working to put simple code into the workbook to protect and/or unprotect all worksheets. I have gotten code to work to both protect and unprotect all the sheets, but when I run the unprotect code (see below), and then I go to edit the workbook, data from the sheet with many "indirect" functions temporarily "overwrites" the data on the active sheet (this is fixed when I scroll my mouse over the effected cells). I am developing this workbook for other users, so I'd like to fix this before sending it off to them.

This problem does not happen until after I run the following .....

Sheet Event Code Errors If Target Deleted

Mar 25, 2008

I have added this bit of code to change the apperance of entered time from 0835 to 08:35

UserInput = Target.Value
If UserInput > 1 Then
NewInput = Left(UserInput, Len(UserInput) - 2) & ":" & Right(UserInput, 2)
Application.EnableEvents = False
Target = NewInput
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If

And it works like a charm. Except that if the content in one of the cells later is deleted a "Run time error 13" is the result. Debug leeds to the line "If Userinput >1 Then"

Can this error be avoided..?

VBA Code To Filter Listbox As You Type In A Textbox

Error '13' Type Mismatch In Function Code

Oct 6, 2006

while the code works fine by itself in the sample file, when inserted into my other file which contains another set of algorithms, it generates a run time error '13' type mismatch whenever the 'Hide' button is clicked.

this line of the following function: b = x / tpi

Function range(x)
tpi = 2 * 3.1415927
b = x / tpi
a = tpi * (b - Int(b))
If (a < 0) Then a = tpi + a
range = a

Split Up Huge Macro Using Call Macro But Pivot Table Code Errors Out?

Jul 10, 2012

I'm using a CALL Macro to split up a HUGE macro into different pieces:

'Macro recorded 12/14/2010 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D.
'Last Updated 7/10/12 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D.
'Do Not Modify Code Unless Given Proper Privileges to do so.
Dim APPSPD As Worksheet
With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False
.Calculation = xlCalculationManual


The first few macros dealing with page setup and what not work fine but when it hits the Pivot table code for the STATSPIVOT macro it errors out stating: "Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the PivotItems property of PivotField class' at this point in the code:

objField2.PivotItems( _
"TRC").Position = 1
objField.PivotItems( _
"MEDCO MAIL OR AOB").Position = 2

When this macro is not split up it worked fine as written. Am I overlooking something in the Call Macro's code or is there a variable I'm not aware of. I have included the Pivot Table code that errors out as well.

Sheets("STATS DATA").Select
Dim objTable As PivotTable, objField As PivotField
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("STATS DATA").Select

Hyperlink Conversion

Jul 30, 2009

I have just been told that one of our servers is being replaced this weekend. I have thousands of hyperlinks in excel docs that reference this server. Other than manually reestablishing the links one by one to the new server, is there a way to do some kind of global change to replace the old server name with the new server name?

These are not hyperlink formulas, but rather Insert>>Hyperlink.

Or, is there a way to convert these hyperlinks to hyperlink formulas that would omit reference to the server and thus not be broken during the conversion?

Grasping at straws because I cannot envision having to relink these one by one.

Yen Conversion Macro

I have a worksheet with values in yen in the C column. My boss (who will not get it through her head that I am not a programmer) wants a macro that will take a yen/$ conversion rate (e.g., 88 yen/$) in cell J1 and convert all the amounts in column C into dollars with a 5% markup and rounding up. If I was doing this as a worksheet calculation rather than a macro, the calculation would look like this:

I need to come up with a total score of points if a person is given a certain grade from the above. ex. if they scored 2a on a certain category, 1c on
another & with all the rest of 8 categories scored. The number i need to come up with is the total points.

Currency Conversion

Jun 23, 2008

I am working on a sheet that logs sales enquiries and quotations. The quotations may be made in either Dollars, Euros or Pounds. However, I want the 'reporting' column to be Pounds. I would appreciate any advice on the simplest way of achieving this.

Imagine column A is dollars, column B is Euros and column C is pounds. Most of the time the quotations are done in pounds and the other two columns will be blank. Also, there will only ever be one figure quoted per row. Would it be easier to create a fourth column (D) to consolidate the three separate figures together? We are using fixed exchange rates for the year, so to convert to pounds we will multiply any dollar quotations by 0.5 and any euro quotations will be multiplied by 0.69.

Number Conversion

Aug 26, 2009

I have two sets of data that I need which is obtained from one source.

Basically, the stats I am working with in excel are Processing Time (minutes/seconds) and Volume Per Hour. I desperately need a formula that will allow me to convert the processing time into Volume per hour.

Example: Average Handle Time, 7min 7 seconds = x per hour. If it was just 7 minutes flat I could simply divide that into 60. I also can't make it 7.7 and divide that because 7.7 doesn't equal 7m7s.

Does anyone have any thoughts on a way to do this? I found a conversion chart online that allowed me to do this work manually 'Conversion Chart: Fraction of an Hour to Minutes', but I haven't determined a way to make a formula out of this.

Time Conversion

Sep 10, 2009

I have an spreadsheet that is monitoring the productivity of agents, as well as the time that it takes to complete each task. My workforce keeps time as .50 = 30 minutes. So 7 and half hours is actually 7.5. Agents are putting the actual time of it took such as 15 minutes however I would like to insert a formula that will convert this for me manually. I know I could give them a conversion sheet, but it took quite a while to get them to actually be able to work in excel. So I would like to add this formula.

Presently, I have A1...C1 formatted for "General." D1 is formatted for "Date." Yet I get the answer "August 23, 1907" (or 2792 as 'General').
