Just recently My Excel 2010 has decided to not let me right click to format cells, delete or insert rows. I can do these functions from the ribbon, but not via right click. this happens in both existing spreadsheets where I am the author, or even a brand new spreadsheet like in the image below. we have restarted the computer, Uninstall and reinstalled Office and still get same symptoms. I got here thru google but cannot find an answer anywhere.
I am very computer literate and even our IT personnel have looked at this with no answer. as you can see in the image, these options are greyed out.
I could swear I used to be able to cut and paste columns in Excel 2010, but for the past week I haven't been able to. When I click on a column and do a right click, "CUT" is greyed out. I can cut any section, but not a whole column.
It was suggested that cells formatted as lists will now allow new rows or columns. I don't think this is case but not sure how to tell? Other suggestions were merged cells or cells protected. Not sure if any of these are the case either.
Using two Combo Boxes, I am trying to create an drop down outline form input sheet.
What it does is if you select the first selection in the combo box 1, then it hides certain rows, and deletes certain cells. If you select the second option in the combo box 1, it shows another combo box (2) which has another list of categories.
When I select the option 2 on the combo box 1, it unhides a bunch of rows, and activates combo box 2. However, when I try to select categories on combo box 2, each time it tries to hide/unhide rows I get this message "Unable to set the hidden property of the range class." I have no idea whats going on.
I need to make a excel costing model to calculate various products prices. I am using Excel 2010.
I have many products and do not need all of them displaying at the same time, therefor I inserted a Checkbox (ActiveX Control) that hides my columns that I do not need. I did that by inserting the following and it works fine :
The problem is I now need to lock certain cells so that they can remain fixed and the recipe cannot change.
Once locked my checkbox no longer works and I get the following error :
"Run-time error '1004': Unable to set hidden property of the range class"...
I have recently tried to implement the password protect from viewing code from this site. It worked brilliant on a basic spreadsheet, but when I tried to implement it on a worksheet with links I keep getting the error:
Run-time error '1004' Unable to set the hidden property of the Range class
I have a spreadsheet with thousands of columns. Due to poor planning on my part I need to insert a column between each existing column (e.g. I need to insert a column between the existing columns A and B, B and C, etc...). I would rather not have to do this manually thousands of times.
I have this excel file which has data in it. However, this data will come in everyday. Eg, A1 to A10 is QWE, A11 to A20 is RTY, A21 to 30 is UIO. But as I said earlier new data will come in everyday. For eg, it will become A1 to A15 is QWE, A16 to A30 is RTY and so and so forth.
I need to insert 2 rows after QWE, RTY, UIO. But as data will come in everyday, I cant standardise my columns to insert the 2 rows.
I have attached an example of what I need the macro for. I really need it to look at the columns with the names (Girth Weld, Weld) and the Joint length column to make its moves. Mainly the joint length. I think that would get me on track and give me some room to explore and learn what else I need to do. I love to try and figure things out but this is killing me!
VB: Sub LineUp() 'assumes data in order and concates unique Dim i1 As Long, i2 As Long, n1 As Long, n2 As Long Const StartRow As Long = 5
I have a macro that inserts a blank column for every sheet in the workbook. The problem i have is that i only want a limited number of columns inserted. I only want a column to be inserted if the sheet tab has the name "detail" in it. I have tried for hours to get this to work, but i keep getting errors. Here is the code i am using.
So for eg Col A Col B Col C Col D are fixed and then there are variable no of columns - Col E Col F and so on....
I have to insert columns after the last colum ie in Col F in this case.
However, the new column (lets call it Col G) will give a value with formula that connects Col E value with Col B (fixed)value. Again Col H (another new col) will also give a value with formula connecting Col H with Col B(fixed).
Easy to do in normal scenario but when I record macro in excel ( i cannot write VB), the variable columns make it difficult.
This is for my fantasy football league, so perhaps being familiar with fantasy football will be of help. It's somewhat complicated, so I'm just going to explain what I would like to do: Upon opening the Excel file, there will be a few questions. The first will ask what type of draft, with just two choices, A or B. Below that, it will have inputs asking how many teams, how many players per team, and, if option B was chosen, how many dollars per team. After answering the questions, there should be a button that will "generate" what I'm about to describe.
Choosing option A or B will result in two completely different sheets: -Option A will have X columns for the number of teams entered, and Y rows for the number of players per team. If possible, something will pop up allowing the user to input each team name.
-Option B will be a bit more complicated. I have a template of what one column will be for each team, and would need to have that repeated for the number of teams entered. Additionally, the number of players per team and dollars per team will need to be placed into an existing formula that will perform certain calculations. And, if possible, the number of players per team will alter the column template if the number is over a pre-defined number. And, like the previous option, it would present a pop up allowing the user to input each team name.
I apologize for the length of this question, and while it is too extensive to ask someone here to do, I would like to know what I can expect if I try to achieve this. Will I need to know programming code? Can you point me to some articles that will help me in terms of turning an inputted number into a spreadsheet with that number of columns after hitting a "submit" button?
My F4 key (which I use constantly) works for every "repeat" function except for inserting rows or columns. I can repeat every other option EXCEPT inserting rows/columns. I just had Office 2007 uninstalled and had Office 2003 put back on my PC. My IT group can't figure it out.
The code below is supposed to insert a column and rename it. However, when I debug, the code only renames the column, it does split or run the loop. I press debug again, and then code executes as it is intended.
I can't explain why I have to press debug twice for in order for the code to work properly.
Code: Sub renameColumns() With Sheets("byPosition")
I have two variables - the number of stages, and the number of people.
The stages will start in say C22 through G22 (if there were 5 stages). The number of stages will vary upon a user-inputted number in A1.
The names of people will start inB29, so I'd like to insert the simple formula (=Max(C23:C28)) across cells C29-G29 (again with my example of 5 stages), with relative references to the columns, of course.
Ditto for the next name in B30, etc, so that I get the max value for Person#1 in Stage 1, 2, 3...Person#2 in Stage 1,2,3...
