When I'm doing cells in a column, there are times where I start a word and it tries to complete the word based on what I wrote before. For example, I'll put Base I, Base II, Base III... etc.
How do I get it to add the word base, but then I can continue typing the numeral after it? I do not want to create another column after with the numeral. So as I type B, A, [click certain button and continue typing] II
I'm in need of a macro that takes data from cells in column A and moves them into different cells. Each block of data includes a company name, contact name, address and usually (but not always) phone, fax, email, website, etc. I want to move each set of contact info into a set of cells that begin in column A, starting with company name. refer to the attached spreadsheet
I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet and basicly i'm inserting manually data from a lot of paper forms.
It isn't a dificult thing, but is boring, because I have to do more than 2000 forms per week! I want to accelerate, and how to do that
Problem: "Address"! The Excel page that i'm working has a column to feel with Addresses manually, but I have a table with all correct Address names from the city that I'm working about in other page.
What I would like is when start typing some keyword from the Address cell, it could show me all the choises of input (based on the correct Address Table)
Excel, by default, show, by exact order, all the choises, already typed on the same collumn. I don't want that.
- imagine I have the Table 1 (representing the table with all city adresses) with a collumn called 'Address' with:
A1 - Street ZXY A2 - Avenue QWE A3 - Street QWE A4 - Avenue ZXY
when typing on another Table, if I write something like “QWE” show me the A2 and A3 to choose wich I'm going to feel, and the same to “ZXY”, showing the A1 and A4. Other thing, if I write “QWE street” may show A3 also. Keyword is what i'm talking about
Is there a way I can set up the worksheet so that in one cell I can type out for example product codes/numbers and by doing the description for the product will come up in another cell. Rather then copy and pasting very the many different product descriptions?
I've created a workbook with code to email it to a reviewer then back to the originator when reviewed (along with other editing functions etc.). The problem - The originator is working in Excel 2003, the reviewer in 2007. The macros work great until the reviewer sends it back. I have not been able to figure out which FileFormat:= ???? to use when I SaveAs prior to emailing as an attachment. My Excel 2003 doesn't recognize the .xlsm file and other formats are eliminated the vba/macro coding
When I type a eMail address, such as: " firstname.lastname@example.org " into any cell and then touch enter, it automatically becomes a hyperlink coloring it blue and underscored. I do not want it to be a hyperlink, for when it is a hyperlink, I have to click on remove hyperlink.
I have been working on a Software Audit list that has been created by someone else. He has created an Application Colum and under that is a drop down box. I want to be able to search by typing in the first letter, i.e. 'S' but currently I just have to scroll down.
Do I need to create and Active X Combo Box to do this or is there another way? Also, is it possible to search on the first two letters, i.e. 'se'?
Is there a way to turn off those annoying error message boxes that pop-up when a line of code is incorrect? I pretty frequently go to another area of code to grab some previous code to copy and paste, and the error message box pops-up, so I have to hit OK to close it. It would be nice if it still highlighted the problem red, but I'd even give that up for those boxes to go away.
I have an issue with a user form I have created. When users open the form there are certain options (ie location) which are a combo box and I only want users to be able to select one of the drop down options.
Sadly they can also type in the combo box. How do I block users from typing in a combo box in a user form so that they are forced into selecting one of the drop down options.
Is it possible to have a macro run as soon as there is text typed into cell A2? Basically, I have a form that needs to be filled out, but somehow, users forget to put their name in the box. So I don't want any information to be able to be typed in until a name is entered.
Is there a way that Excel can automatically enter to next row once the typing has reach the end.
Example: I have 5 columns (A to E) and I am typing at column A. While typing, the text will go along to cell B, C, D and E. The problem is, if I don't manually go to next row and continue typing, the text will go to column F, G and so on. Is there a way where excel can automatically jump to next row if the text has reach column E?
Another problem is, say I have 3 rows full of text (column A to E). If I edit one of the row to exter some new texts, the whole sentence will go along to column F, G and so on. What I can do now is, re-edit all the rows to adjust them back.
Is there a macro or code snippet that can change the color of the font while i am typing in the cell. Means that if the font color int he cell is originally RED, i can type and change it to another color using VB code.
Instead of typing out my code hundreds of times, I would like to replace it with an abbreviation or variable(?). Here is my example. If I have this in the wrong place please let me know. I want to replace Activecell.Interior.Colorindex with ACIC. I tried to Dim ACIC as range, variant, string...to no avail. In combination I Set ACIC = Activecell.Interior.Colorindex and that didn't work. I have been toiling with VBA for a year and I am still trying to learn the terminology and understand it so please forgive me if I seem really NOOBIE. :-)
I am creating a form using Excel 2007/XP, and am trying to make it easy to use for both people who want to click and people who want to type. I have a series of list boxes in the form that make it easy for the clickers, but I want the typers to be able to tab into the box and make a selection. For example, if the choices are Apples, Pears, and Grapes, I would like a user to be able to tab into the box, hit P and tab to the next box and have Pear be selected.
I am trying to have a form that people can fill in and I know it would be far better to use Word for this purpose but it looks so much better in Excel format. The problem is I have merged about 10 cells in a row and copied this format down a few rows.
Now although I have set the 'Text Wrap' option the rows will not auto expand unti to accodate all the text unless I do a ALT-ENTER combo. The problem is anyone using this spreadsheet to complete the form may not know how to use this feature.
Is there anyway Excel can expand automatically or do I need some sort of Macro based in the Worksheet that will automatically adjust the row if the text is too long to fit?
when I type a 6 digit date into Excel cells formatted to dd/mm/yyyy very strange dates are being displayed. Tried opening a new book - just the same result. All is ok typing with the / in between but I don't usually have to do that. Regional settings have been checked and formatting etc.
Is it possible to click on a cell and use the cell info as the input data for a search instead of typing data into a cell for a vlookup?
For example, I have a spreadsheet with numbers corresponding to stock codes. Would it be posible to just click on the stock number to return the information on the stock (levels, sizes etc...) instead of typing the stock code in for a vlookup calculation.
