Updating A List Box...

Jun 8, 2009

I have written some code that populates a list box with data, and have allowed data to be deleted from the list box if a line of data is double-clicked, with the data below the deleted row being updated to remove the empty row, etc. All works fine except that, when I force the list box's 'selected' line to be the one below the last entry (as if you were selecting the next empty line with the mouse) and the code completes, you cannot click on the form and move it around, nor can you access any other of the form's controls, until you click inside the list box.

Apparently, forcing the line selection in the list box (to simulate someone clicking on a row in the list box) is what's causing the problem. I need to force the selection because the number of data lines in the list box is more than can be shown in the list box, therefore I need a method to automatically scroll the list box to show the next available line in the list box.

Self Updating Drop Down List

Nov 1, 2008

I currently have a drop down list in sheet 1 and the list is being refrenced from sheet 2

Lets say the drop down list is for fruits and my current list in sheet 2 has 4 items Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach.

Now this is what I need :-

1 ) lets say a user wants to enter Orange (which is not in the list ) he can still do so by entering it manually into the cell.

2) Once Orange is entered which is not in the LIST in sheet 2 then that new name gets added to the LIST in sheet 2 so that next time that name appears in the drop down list automatically. eg Apple, Grape, Mango, Peach, Orange [ but Items should not get duplicated eg Apple, Grape, Apple, Mango, Peach, Apple

Updating A List Of Data

Jan 9, 2009

I have a workbook. I want to write a macro that takes cells A16:G16 on sheet "Calc" and to update the list on the sheet "POSITIONS". This is done by using the cell A16 (on "Calc") and looking up the "A" column on sheet "POSITIONS" for a match, then replacing the new values from the "Calc" on the "POSITIONS" sheet. If no match is found I would like to add the new data at the bottom of the sheet. The maxium number of entries (rows) on sheet "POSITIONS" will be 300.

Combo Box List Updating

Jan 22, 2009

I would like my combo box list to change base on the value of A1. That is, I have its input range being B1:F1 - "Year 1", " Year 2" etc.

-If cell A1 is the value "10" then the combo box default list item would be
"Year 1" (which is cell "B1")
-If cell A1 is the value "20" then the combo box default list item would be
"Year 2" (which is cell "C1") ETC...

Updating Cells Based On List Selection

Dec 18, 2008

I am working on a spreadsheet that is essentially a question and answer based document .... I need to set up the macros so that if a certain response is chosen from a list, it will automatically update the cell / row next to it with a pre-determined response ....

The way the spreadsheet is set up is that the first column has the question, the second column has the answer (yes, no or N/A - from data validation - as a list) and the third column is blank - but is titled "comment/action" .....

For example: if the question is "have you locked the car" and the answer column selects "NO" then I want the "comments/action" to come back with "you need to lock the car", and if the answer is "YES" then I want the comment/actions column to remain blank ...... The same with N/A ......

I will have around 100 questions in the document ...... I know I need to set up the responses on a separate worksheet - i just dont know what the macro's are to identify and place the appropriate response from the worksheet to the relevant comment/action column .....

Updating Cells Based On Data Validation List

May 14, 2009

What I am trying to do would appear to be very simple. I am trying to build a quotation form for our sales guys to use. I would like to use a drop down list with the list of products in, which I have created using a list in a second sheet and then using a data validation drop down list.

What I would like to achieve is the sales person selects the product (of a list of only 14) from the list and excel to automatically fill in the two columns to the right with the model no. and also the price.

Would it be possible to use an IF statement as there are only 14 products to choose from? Is there a better way of doing this? I have created the lists of model numbers and prices in the second sheet alongside the product name which the drop down list sources from.

Updating Cells Based On Drop Down List Selection

Jun 8, 2007

I have created a pricing sensitivity for a list of products. In cell C3, users can select a product (i.e. Apple, Elmo, or Bowl) and based on this selection, a range of Prices and Units are then updated and the Revenue for each price point calculated. A few lines beneath this, I have a little summary table that lists all the products. I'd like for users to be able to enter in the optimal price point for each item and then have the Units and Revenue for that selected price point for that specific product automatically update.

For example, if I select Apple from my drop down list my price choices are $5, $10, $15; units are 100, 85, 70; and revenue are $500, $850, and $1,050 respectively. On the summary table, I would like units 85, revenue $850 to update automatically if I select/input a $10 price. This would happen for all the products so at the end I want to be able to calculate a blended revenue mix given my pricing changes.

Macro To Create A Dialog Box For Entering And Updating Drop Down List?

Oct 31, 2013

This is what I'm trying to do:

1. When a user clicks on a Drop down box and selects "Add New", I would like a Macro to run

2. I want this Macro to open up a Dialog/Text box to say "Enter New Information" where the user can enter in some text

3. The text that is entered by the user into this box will be added as a new entry into the Drop down box selection

My VBA knowledge is still at a beginner's level and I know how to get a Macro to run based on a cell value. However I don't know how to create a Macro for the dialog box nor do I know how to create a Macro for updating the drop-down items.

Updating Cells Based On Selection From Drop Down List Data Validation

Dec 13, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007. I would like to seek some advise on how i may update cells after selecting a month from a drop down list.

i have created a simplified version of what i intend to have. One the 1st tab 'Cash Budget 2009', i have filled up a table with numbers, sorted by months. On the 2nd tab 'Dec09', i would like to create an expense table, to be able to be selected by month. So i have created a drop down list based on the months that are created in the 1st tab.

Upon selection of the month from the drop down list, i would like the cells to display (fetch) the data from the 1st worksheet. It would also be helpful if the name of the 2nd tab can be updated to read as the month that is being selected.

Create Auto Updating Price List Using Part Number And Website

Jan 3, 2014

I'm trying to create an autoupdating price list using a part number and a website. I've tried Excel's data import wizard.

Website: WebFLIS - Public Search
Sample data Category
Chaplain Kits
Chaplain's Kit, Consumable

Also called the ReSuppply Kit

VBA Code that allows me to automatically open the page.

Dim IE As Object
Sub submitFeedback3()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

[Code] ......

Ideally, I'd like to click a button that says "Update Prices" and it will search WebFlis for the NIIN listed and update the price. I have 717 items on my list so updating would be by click only (I think I can write that portion).

If that is not an option, I'd like to be able to click on each item row (think hyperlink) and be able to see the results for that individual item.

Automatically Updating Adjacent Cells Based On Dropdown List Selection Even If Changed

Apr 12, 2013

I have a workbook that has two worksheets. One worksheet is an input worksheet. A user will select a date from a drop-down list and type in the events that occurred on that date in 8 adjacent cells. The user selects a button that advances date and clears form. On sheet 2, whatever was typed into sheet one is saved via VLOOKUP formula. However, if I try to change something retroactively and select a previous date from the drop-down list, it clears everything in sheet 2 that was typed for any selected day.

Sum Is Not Updating?

I feel like I am losing my mind here. I have a basic SUM calculating a bunch of cells. I have done the SUM from th autosum feature as well as, just typing it is (=SUM(B1:b16)), It totals up the cells correctly, but, when I change a value in one of the cells, the sum is not updating? I have never seen this happen...Does anyone know what could be causing this?

RTD Not Updating

Mar 18, 2009

In my Excel 2007 I have downloaded an Add-in (Webiress data) which allows me to receive RTD of a particular security which I then use to plot a chart. In a day there are around 15,000 changes in prices of that particular security.

The problem is that the RTD misses many prices when the market is fast and also it frequently (around 20 times per day) stops updating and then I have to clear the cell where the RTD is updated and it returns to normal, updating the prices for few minutes and then stop again.

A friend of mine told me that I have to change one Registry in Excel to tell Excel to check for a RTD every 2 miliseconds. I found this suggestion a bit strange and I have no idea how to do it.

Has anyone ever come across a RTD issue like this?

I contacted the server provided (webiress) and they said there is no problem with the updating of RTD (real time data) and the problem should be on my side.

Updating Charts In 97

May 23, 2008

I update graphs/charts everyday. I've been looking at ways of updating a lot of charts in 1 action.....

What would the formula be to have the range of the chart (ie =Data!$BS$1188:$BS$1201) to get the row numbers, not the row, from numbers entered elsewhere on a data sheet (ie =Data!$BS$1188:$BS$1201)

As a lot of the time I use the same number range but on different rows and sheets.

Updating Links All At Once

Apr 11, 2008

if it would be possible to update all the links in a workbook at once. For example, say I have a worksheet which is linking to a file named something like 4-6-08 (1) and 4-6-08 (2) and so on with the number in brackets being from 1-21. Now say I have the same thing for 4-7 and 4-8 and 4-9. Now I want to change the links to point to 4-10,11,12,13 instead of 6,7,8, and 9. But still there are 21 copies of each sheet. Is there any way to change all the sources at once so all the 4-6's could become 4-10's and 4-7's to 4-11's?

Udf Stopped Updating

Mar 18, 2009

I have made a series of of udf's and used them without a problem in my worksheet. One of the variables used by udf's, " commission " is a named range on the "vrs" sheet in my book. All was working fine, all the udfs updated whenever i changed the value of "commission" by directly entering a new value in the cell referenced by "commission" I then wrote sub to call an input box wich collected a value for commission and put it in the ranged cell. Since then, of the 4 columns of data that commission acts on only 3 now update automatically. The recalcitrant 4th column will only update if I select the cell, place the cursor anywhere in the formula and press enter.

Link Updating

Aug 19, 2007

I have links in one workbook to a series of other workbooks. Using Excel 2002. I am making selecting changes in the source workbooks and not automatically recalculating the workbook. I know what is changing and am just recalculting that by clicking on the cell and going to the end of the formula and pressing enter.

The problem is that when I go into the master workbook to which this data is linked, it seems unwilling to update the data - and it sounds like this may be because I didn't recalculate the entire workbook.

Is this in fact what happens? Any way around it. Recalculating the workbooks in which the source links are found would take lots of time and I'd rather avoid that.

Updating Records

Jun 10, 2009

I am using Excel 2007.

I have a large spreadsheet and new data is added periodically.

I have several columns of data associated with a description & date.

The data associated with each description is unique to that day.

I want to archive the older desciption data after I add newer description data.

Column B = date of the data
Column E = description (phrase)

How do I remove duplicate older rows of description data from my main spreadsheet (keep the newest descriptions rows) and save the older rows of data in a archive sheet?

My sheet has many columns from A to BU.

I have about 220,000 records with many duplicate Descriptions in column E. Each Description record has a date in the Date column B.

Records are sorted by: Description A to Z
then by: Date Newest to Oldest.

Here is an example (not actual sheet):

I highlighted the duplicate Description records in these examples that I want to update and archive.

I want to delete the older Description records from my main sheet so that only the duplicate Description records with the newest date remains like the example below.

And the older duplicate records that are removed from the main sheet I would like to save to a new sheet so that I can save a history of the Description records.

TextBox Value Not Updating

Dec 10, 2009

I have a userform that displays data related to a given stock in textboxes and lets me manipulate other data with command buttons. it works fantastically, except the dynamic data on the sheet does not update dynamically in the textboxes.

i have a combo box from which i select a symbol, data is pulled from the sheet and populates the text boxes. that is accomplished with a sub. there are 800 symbols. i mention that because i can't just set the ControlSource to a specific cell. I tried several different ways of referring to the cell, using .Cells and vlookup but i mostly just got errors. then i tried to do it with code (heh) here's a sample:

SecurityName.Value = Cells(r, 5)
ParityBid1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 12), 2)
ParityAsk1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 13), 2)
ParityLast1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 14), 2)
LocalVolume1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 10), 0)

Again, it pulls the data fine, it just doesn't update. Anyone who can help will receive total consciousness on their deathbed.

Combobox Not Updating

Mar 16, 2007

I have hundreds of combobox's that provide a list of names (few thousand names).

I have it set up so a user can select anyone from the combobox for the line of data they are working on.

The problem is, if I add data to the list that is populated by the combo box, the combo box doesn't always update.

the combo box link to the data by named range (list on another sheet in same workbook), and the named range is automatically updated when an entry is added (so the range is correct), but the combo boxes still won't update all the time. The strange part is.

Links Not Updating

I have several Excel files saved on a network drive at work. We run cost studies and have numerous links mixed in with these files. My question is, when we change data in one sheet, it doesn't update the other sheet where we have it linked. When you click on the address for the link you get, (\fileshareN:Raetc...) If I remove the \fileshare and leave it as N: the links update. What am I doing wrong here? It automatically adds this \fileshare piece when I add the link. When I have removed it and close it, the extra information is added and I am back at square one.

Chart Not Always Updating

May 31, 2007

I am using Microsoft Excel 2003. There are several charts in the worksheet and the ranges for the series in the charts are defined by named ranges, e.g.:

Values: =FirstNamedRange

where FirstNamedRange is defined as Sheet1!A2:A100.

The values in FirstNamedRange are themselves calculated from other inputs. The problem is that when I recalculate the sheet, changing the values of FirstNamedRange, there are times when the chart does not change.

This happens sporadically. 9 times out of 10 both the values in the range and the chart change. At other times, the values in the range change and the chart doesn't reflect this. If I save the file, close and then reopen, (thus forcing the chart to recalculate?) then the chart looks correct.
