Using Command Button And VBA To Create Summary Reports Relative To Pull Down Menu?
Sep 16, 2012
See attached file - I would like to use the "Create Parts issue Report" Button to create worksheet titled "Parts Issue Report" based on the pulldown menu in cell B1 tab "Vehicle data" so each pulll down will generate a different "Parts Issue Report" when clicking the "Create Parts Issue Report" button. I think it needs to be a looping VBA to go thru the "Vehicle Data" rows and columns looking for the keywords "late" or past" as I only want a report created on that criteria. The output criteria I have label in the tab "Parts Issue Report" I can explain further if needed.
I have three worksheets called North, East and South. Data is held in each of these sheets starting in D1:BZ144 and the data is in columns of three. Example columns D:E is one set of records, F:H is another and so on. The first cell of each set of columns is the company name.
I need to copy all of these records into a Summary works sheet so that the records are in held in columns B:D and that the first cell is shown shown in column 'A'.
Secondly, in a second sheet I'm trying to setup a lookup so that I can call the company name and the records from the sheets North, East and South are shown that relate. I've tried using HLOOKUP but as the company name only appears in the first column I cannot get columns rwo and three to show.
I am currently pulling information from a database into Excel. In column A is a list of dates that vary depending on how many days I decide to pull. On any given day there are options to which car will be driven and it is random and there are attributes associated with that drive such as below. If the car was not driven the data pull inputs "No Data" or a "0". On any given day up to three cars can be driven but it is still possible that only one will be driven. This is shown in the second table below. I'd like to be able to create an automated summary table such as the first table below. The summary table should be organized by date and show what cars were driven and their attributes. I know this seems simple but in reality I have six different cars and up to 10 attributes for each car and will be pulling months at a time. The only thought I have had is to do a for loop that checks every individual cell but I am not sure how to implement that.
Is it true that I have to enable macro and choose to trust access to the VBA project object model in order to create and run macros? It seems there is some security risk associated with making the workbook as macro enabled. What makes the commands run from the ribbon security free? Is it true that we can work around the macro security concern by creating a command button to the ribbon and run the macro from the command button? If yes, how come I could not find any discussion of creating the command buttons? I am using Excel 2007.
I have an excel that has Marco being run by using a command button to create my pdf's. But my work sheets are Protected by a password. Is there a code for me to insert in order for the worksheet become unprotected for it to do the commands I am requesting?
I need to create a macro that will scan a spreadsheet for the number of sheets and then pull data from the same places on each sheet in order to create a summary sheet. Let me try to explain a little better.
The spreadsheet I'm working with has a separate sheet for each new deal our company makes. Each of these sheets is in the same format - we use a template and fill in the data based on that whenever a new deal emerges. The sheets contain basic info about the deal in the first few rows and columns, then some narratives with dates describing the progress of the deal, and then a list of issues and whether or not they have been resolved. The problem is, each of these sheets contains too much info for a quick, high-level overview with the bosses so they've asked me to create something that will pull the basic info, the most recent narrative, and any unresolved issues from each sheet. This way, each time there's an overview scheduled with the bosses, the macro can be run and it will create a new sheet with data from each sheet in the workbook.
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
I'm trying to pull up a second form from a command button within a form. There's a command button in a sheet to open the first form (frmOrderInput.) Then there's another command button in that form to open the second form (frmPriceInput.)
I have a workbook with a spreadsheet that will have ID numbers entered into it. In the column next to the ID numbers, I would like to have usernames automatically populate. I have another workbook that has a spreadsheet with one column with user ID and one column with the username for that particular ID number. Is there a formula I can use to have Excel match the user ID entered to the user ID on another spreadsheet, and then pull in the column next to it (the username)?
I do testing of industrial equipment, collecting a lot of data along the way. Once I've calculated the performance metrics of existing systems, I do a cost analysis on proposed repairs or replacements.
I have a couple of goals in trying to streamline my spreadsheet process and make it more effective.
My worksheets usually end up with way more columns than I can view on the screen and that gets pretty cumbersome, so I want to develop input forms that will make data entry simpler. I've tried transposing the formats but they get even more difficult to handle that way. I just ran across the "Build a UserForm for Excel" pdf in this forum and I think that's going to help quite a bit.
Then for each of these types of projects I need to develop at least two report formats, one that will be comprehensive for each individual piece of equipment or subsystem that I'm analyzing, and another that's more of a summary of entire systems, such as a network of pumps all owned by the same customer. Ideally, this summary report would allow me to rank the subsystems by various criteria, such best ROI or most critical to operations. Format-wise what I'm looking for here is to strip away anything not relevant to decision makers, just reporting the important ID info and key results.
Finally, I'd like to be able to store all similar jobs in a single database so I can easily search through past results for comparative purposes when doing higher level analysis on new projects. I keep seeing the term "relational database" bandied about but don't really know if that's what I'm talking about or not.
i would like to create reports and queries in excel just like in access is this possible or do you import a layout,i have a sheet that has data on i would like to be able to pick just one row or mutiple rows and print them off could i save them to a menu to use over and over again,would i use a userform to search for these or can it be done otherways ,have seen pivot tables but seem bit complicated
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
I think VLookup is what I need to use, but am unfamiliar with how to use it. The attached file will explain a little more about what I would like to do. I have an inventory summary from 2007 and 2008. Each year has its own sheet. Each record has two fields that need to match on the summary sheet. If the two fields match, the summary sheet should return a total in the third field. It's more clearly explained in the file itself.
I want to create a code that will allow my users to add in a loaction for a pull down menu. I have the pull downs and named ranges all set up. I just now need the code which will promp them message boxes for inputs as well as have the macro insert and paste in their inputs enlarging the named ranges.
Allsheets are password protected and the password is "techedit".
the first sheets name is: "DOR" and the seconds sheets name is :Menus (hidden)".
I need the first message box to ask the user "Name of Client?". I then need the second message box to ask the user: "Name of Platform?". And finally I need the thrid message box to ask users: "Well names on Platform?"
I then want the macro to go to the sheet named "Menus (hidden)" and insert the platform name (answer from question 2) followed by the names of the wells (answer from question 3), each well being on its own row directly below the platform name, into the named range called "alllocations". this should be inserted into the bottom of the range.
The macro then needs to expand the range of "alllocations" to include the newly inserted rows. It also needs to define a new range for the newly added well names. The name of this range should be the answer to question 2.
once that is done the macro should take the answer to question 1 and insert it into a named range of "clientnames", as well as change the range of "clientnames" to now include the newly added client name.
And finally take the location name and add it a range called "locations", it should also change the range Locations" to now include the newly added location.
I need to create 3 or 4 detailed reports from an excel 2010 worksheet.
My worksheet contains data including date, invoice number, company , consultant, days, dollars. There are approximately 100 records in the worksheet.
Requirement 1 :I want to use excel 2010 to automatically generate a series of reports broken down by consultant showing date, invoice number, company, and consultant with totals for days and dollars, when all the records for consultant 1 are listed, then I want to show consultant 2.
Same for any other consultants with a grand total at the end.
My understanding is that excel 2010 makes this process very simple .
I'm trying to do a pull down menu with three selections - green,yellow, and red dots? I set up the data validation and referred it to a list. That is under Data Validation -> Settings -> Allow: List; Source: a range of cells where I put 3 colored dots(graphics). Now in the pull down menu when I select the first choice, it just gives me a black dot. The second choice gives me the same black dot. And so does the 3rd choice gives me a black dot.
So, how do I carry the 3 colored dots over? Or it's not possible using the Data Validation approach? If not what is the best and easiest way to go about doing this....
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
When selecting from a list of text items in a pull down menu in a cell how can you link that change to other cells to effect a change in them. An example would be if the pull down menu was in cell A1 and as a result of the text selected to be shown in A1 resulted in a need for the text in C3 to be changed as well as the formula in cell D3 to be change which will result in a numeric answer in cell D3. Not all of the choices in cell A1 will require that the text and formula be change in cell C3 and D3.
