User Form Field Inserts Wrong Date Format

Mar 26, 2009

I have cobbled together (borrowing from examples I have found online because I don't know VBA) a form which inserts a date into a spreadsheet.

The trouble I have is that this date field is in USA date format and I need UK.

If I enter 03/01/2009 into the form, it appears in the spreadsheet as 01/03/2009. I have formatted these cells to display the month only and because of the way it was entered, the next column displays MAR instead of JAN.

Can I validate the input value in a form?

Correct Date Format In User Form Txtbox

Dec 11, 2008

I have the following code to ensure user inputs date in correct format, but on test it doesn't capture if they enter 11.12.08 (Which we have had people do before), if that is entered the textbox returns 30/12/99, is there a way I can prevent this?

Private Sub txtStartDate_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) 'Checks Start Date is in correct date format
If IsDate(txtStartDate.Value) Then
txtStartDate.Value = Format(DateValue(txtStartDate.Value), "dd/mm/yy")
Else
MsgBox "Please enter a valid date format."
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

Setting Date Format For A Text Box In A User Form

Dec 15, 2009

I've been struggling with this for a while now and can't believe how hard it is!. I've searched on this site and on others to get some clarification but to no avail.

It's pretty simple really. I have a user form which contains a tex box for a user to input the date I want the format to be dd/mm/yyyy but can't find out how to set the format of the text box to this.

Text Field Visible Property On User Form

Jan 22, 2010

I have a text field at the bottom of a user form that remains hidden (i.e. visible = false) until the user clicks the "Ok" button. At that point, I want the text field to appear as the macro is running (it's a large macro, so the text field just says "processing, please wait...").

The first line of my macro is:

Automatic Time Format In Form Field?

Mar 10, 2009

How can I have a form field automatically fill some aspects of the data that's input? I've seen it before, like a phone# field automatically including the dashes.

I would like to automatically include colons in a time field. So if I were to type "081500" (or even "81500"), it would complete it as "08:15:00".

Copy-paste From Csv To Xls Macro > Wrong Date Format

Apr 27, 2009

I'm exporting a csv file from a membership database with the attendance of members. With a macro i open the file and copy the contend to excel. With the macro the column for the date has *randomly* wrong formats. Example the date in column B:

Aasia Tallah19-03-2009 19:33
Aasia Tallah17/03/09 7:49 pm
Aasia Tallah15/03/09 7:53 pm
Aasia Tallah14/03/09 6:34 pm
Aasia Tallah03-12-2009 20:05
Aasia Tallah03-11-2009 19:56
Aasia Tallah03-10-2009 19:54

I try to change the format of the column, but that does not work. Rows 2,3 and 4 seem to be text but they are not. If i access the edit bar for example the 17th of march and store without changing anything, it changes to the format of the first row. That is how i want it. If i copy the column by hand, every thing is fine.

All of the following i tryed:
- format date column of the csv before copying... failed
- copy special with only pasting values... failed
- preformat the column i paste the date to... failed
- delete the sheet i paste to and create a new one... failed
- copy the macro to a new workbook... failed

When User Inserts New Row Copy Formulas / Formatting From Row Above

Jan 29, 2014

If the user inserts a row, I want all formatting/formulas/data validation from the row above to be inherited in the newly inserted row. I want this to occur on sheet1.

When you insert a new row, although the entire new row is selected, the active cell is the cell in column A. So I figured I could base a routine off of the active cell. Here is what I tried:

[Code] .....

I am trying to reference a range. The first cell in the range is above the active cell. The second cell in the Range is above, the active cell, then to the right of the range, then down one. By referring to this Range, I am then trying to use the FillDown method. This code isn't doing anything.

Also, I need Excel to automatically run this code when the user inserts a new cell on sheet1. Would I need an event handler or just put this code inside of the Sheet1 code window?

Create Order Form That Inserts Rows Based On Value In Column

Apr 11, 2014

I'm trying to make an order form that is based off of a price list. Basically there will be 200 items or so someone can just enter the quantity they want into a column. I would then like another sheet on the workbook to auto-populate all of the fields available. The thing I'm having trouble with is I don't want the finished form to be as long as the price list with blank rows in-between. I've been reading up to make a macro work for this, but have had no success.

Inserts New Row And Also Inserts New Sheet With The Rows Name That Was Inputted

Jan 8, 2007

(1) My main tab I have a macro button that inserts a new row and also inserts a new sheet with the rows name that was inputted. But on the main tab in cell A1 that is named, I can not get it to hyperlink to the new tab.

(2) When the button is hit to insert a new row and sheet I copy over previous tabs information and then I want to change two fields A1 and B1, A1 works fine but my B1 I can not get the formula to work correctly. My cell in B1 I need it to say 'DESCRIPTION: ' and then take the value of main tab 'Test Case Summaries' cell D?, it would be the new line and copy it here. See below... rname is the new tab name and lrow is the new row that was added when the macro button is hit.

t = Sheets.Count
Sheets(t).Copy after:=Sheets(t)
ActiveSheet.Name = rname

Sheets(t + 1).Range("a1") = ("Test Nbr " & rname)

Sheets(t + 1).Range("b1").Formula = "DESCRIPTION: " & "!$D$" & lrow

Date Format Error - General Number Field

Feb 18, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with a column full of dates

I used the formatting wizard to make all dates the format of dd/mm/yyyy but, now, when I put a date in the column it throws up a number '41313' instead of a date, even if I manually input the date in the same format as above.

Also, I have tried to turn cells back into general number fields, but this doesn't appear to be changing it back to a date format..

There are HUNDREDS of dates I might have lost if I can't get them to start showing as dates again!

User Input Date Not Kept In Date Format

My macro asks for a user input in DD-MM-YY format (which is the same format of all cells in the Excel worksheet).

I then instruct the macro to paste the string into cell A1 in 'TEST' sheet.

However when it pastes in the format is MM-DD-YY with the user input DD being the worksheet MM etc.

For example 06-04-14 becomes 04-06-14.

Grand Total Of The Calculated Field Returns Wrong Results

Apr 24, 2008

i have a problem regarding calculated field.. i have data of sales of a distributor with all the accounts that he handles.. i want to get the total number of buying accounts for that distributor..

buying account is an account that bought a specific product for at least one time... even the account buy 2 or 3 times more for that specific product the account is considered as 1 buying account..

i want to use a pivot table so i can manipulate the data.. first i tried to add an additional field to my data and put the formula
"if(norbo_val>0,1,0)" where norbo_val is the total sales less the rejects. it means if ever an account have positive sales the account is considered as a buying account for that specific product. my problem is that when that account bought the same product for 2 or more times it sums all the times an account bought for that specific product..

so i decide to remove the field in my data and create a calculated field in the pivot table. i input the same formula to the calculated field and it gives me the correct result where if ever an account bought a specific product for at least one time regardless on how many times the account bought that same product, the account is considered as 1 buying account. the only problem i am encountering now is that the grand total is not summing up the total numbers of buying accounts if i list all the accounts. it seems the formula is affecting the grand total where it should add the total of buying accounts but instead using the formula of the calculated field so the result is only 1.

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)

Look Up Data And Plug Into Form - User Form In Reverse?

Jan 14, 2009

I have created a registration workbook for this year's youth sports league. All of the information is entered into a User Form and separated onto it's appropriate sheet designated by the child's age. Next year, I would like to use this year's workbook to look up returning players.

Will it be possible to add a "lookup" button into my form, or create a lookup program, that once the registrar clicks on the correct player, the information is plugged into the User Form, the registrar adjusts the age and any necessary info, presses enter, and the information is copied into the appropriate category in the new workbook? I haven't worked with User Forms long enough to know if they can be filled in that way, but if this can be done, you are the people who would know.

Unload Or Hide User Form On Show Next Form

Dec 2, 2008

I'm using a series of user forms for data entry to a workbook, some of them open next stage user form on completion (OK cmd button).

All that is working fine, but I'd like the initial form to close on showing the next one. I've tried adding Unload and Hide commands following the frmInsertEntry.Show (Next stage form), to no avail, but I'd like this user form to close or hide at the end of the sub.

Private Sub cmdContinueType_Click()

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Records").Activate 'Select starting cell in record sheet
Range("N3").Select

Do
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then ' Search for next empty cell
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True

If optDrillType = True Then
frmDrillEntry.Show
Else
frmInsertEntry.Show
End If

Auto Populate Field With Date When Other Field Is Selected From Validation List

Jul 4, 2013

In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.

Text To Columns Function Picks Wrong Number Format After Conversion

Jun 16, 2014

Using the text to columns option on a comma separated file in csv format leads to the right preview in the text to columns wizard.

The column titled "ATTIC: Zone ..." shows the desired format in the preview window. Please look at the screenshot 1.jpg.

After pushing the finish button to obtain the result the number format gets suddenly changed and differs from the preview.

Again check for the "ATTIC: Zone ..." column as reference: 2.jpg

Is there a menu where one can look up, or specify how to format data to force the right comma placement? What settings might be wrong?

Free Form Textbox In Search Field

Feb 10, 2013

How can I allow users to either select the SKU from the dropdown menu, or to type in the SKU # in the dropdown menu (C5 through F5) and have it populate the data fields for that SKU when they press the 'Enter' key?

Currently using Data Validation ='KVM Comparison Data'!$B$4:$OP$4 and cell logic to allow the information to be pulled from a hidden tab =INDEX('KVM Comparison Data'!$D$2:$OP$65,MATCH('KVM Product Comparison'!$B6,'KVM Comparison Data'!$A$2:$A$65,0),MATCH('KVM Product Comparison'!C$5,'KVM Comparison Data'!$D$4:$OP$4,0))

In short, I want to keep it the way I have it, but allow users to also have the option of typing in a SKU and pull the data up that way. I know this is possible, I just can't figure out how to do it, while keeping my current solution in place as well.

Excel 2003 :: Array Dates Transposed Results In Text And Wrong Format?

Sep 17, 2008

I have a VBA subroutine that builds a list of dates in an array and then copies this to the worksheet using worksheetfunction.transpose. The array is two dimensional and therefore uses the variant data type.

This works fine in Excel 2002. In Excel 2003 the array is fine until the Transpose function is used, at this point they are changed from dd/mm/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy. This means that some dates are changed (eg: 01/Mar/2008 becomes 03/Jan/2008) and some are written as strings (eg: 17/Mar/2008 becomes the string "17/03/2008" and cannot be operated on as a date).

I'm aware that there was a hotfix to deal with a similar issue regarding recalculation but this is on Excel 2003 SP3 which should already have that hotfix in place.

I have reduced my code down to a basic demonstration showing the problem. This assumes the worksheet contains some dates in "A2:A32". I have also attached the workbook containing this code.

VB:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim a() As Variant, c As Integer
Redim a(1 To 31)
For c = 1 To 31
a(c) = Cells(1 + c, 1)
Next c
Range("D2:D32") = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(a)
End Sub

I have fixed this problem by looping through each element of the array and writing them individually in to cells but this is far slower so I'd like to know if there is a better solution than that.

Validate That A Field On A VB Form Is Filled Before The OK Button Is Executed

Mar 21, 2006

I have a Form that user fill in information on, once they click the OK button, excel is filled with the inserted text on the form in the correct cells.

My question is, how do I validate that they have actually entered data in some cells, which I want to make mandatory, and if they have not, prompt them (this could be a simple message box) to fill it in. Let them fill it, and once they click OK again, check again... until all the mandatory fields are filled, only then will the macro fill in the excel cells.
