I'm working on this Macro process - and I can't figure two things out.
1) How do I get it to past contents in the second blank cell at the bottom of a list in a specific column? IE - data in B1:B17, paste new list in B19. What I'd REALLY like, is for it to paste in B8, but if B8 used, THEN paste to the second to last blank cell in column B. (if thats even possible)
2) I have VB open an excel workbook, grab data, copy and then past into 1) (above), but then close that workbook. However it always asks "do you wish to save?" and "Do you wish to keep data on clipboard" How can I program it to say "no" for both of these windows prompts? Here's an excerpt of my code:
I'm creating a Macro to paste a series of formulas from a template in hidden rows above to cells further down in the same worksheet. My code works fine if I set an absolute range as the Destination - here's a portion of it:
Sub TimelineRow150() Dim TimelineMatch As Integer, ProjectPlan As Object TimelineMatch = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Value If TimelineMatch = 26 Then Range("E26:AQ28").Select
I'd like to be able to copy and paste this code to run it multiple times in the same worksheet, (the TimelineMatch variable actually has 26 different options). Is there a way to replace the [Range("E150:AQ152").Select] portion of the code with a range that is relative to the Active Cell? (I'd instruct users that cell E be the Active cell before running the Macro, and E to AQ is still the range I need the copied data to appear.) I've tried using ActiveCell.Offset, but I keep getting an error of Method 'Range of Object' _Global' failed.
I would like a macro that will go to a fixed sheet, copy the format, go back to the previous sheet and paste the format. My problems arise going back to the previously activated sheet rather than just a fixed sheet.
whenever the active cell is within a given range, highlight the cell on the same row in column S (by changing its interior colour). This should occur each time the active cell is changed, whether by cursor keys or mouse. The effect would be similar to the row and column highlights at left and top of the worksheet.
This action should be restricted to one sheet in the workbook.
I have got stuck on one piece of my code and having trouble fixing... Overall I am trying to find variable station name in cell L2 of Sheet 2 in Sheet 1 and then select and copy the data from the data in "cell L2 of Sheet 2" to the last entry of that row. I have attached an example test spreadsheet of the data and a macro is within Sheet 1 called test1. Please note that cell L2 in Sheet 2 will always be different station name and the station list in Sheet 1 will change with differing station name.
The code I am using is:
The code that is not working and bringing up an error is:
I'm trying create a macro to enter a series of forumula's in a series of rows in whatever column is currently selected (or column which has a cell selected). IE if the active cell is C5 I want "=A1+B1" copied to C10 of it was AA43 selected I'd want "=A1+B1" copied to AA10. Have done this with setting a row as a variable, but whenever I've defined the column as one it comes out as a numeric value. and gives me "method range of object global failed"
I want to copy data from the current sheet, and past it in the "montly" sheet.
'i and j were defined above, with a Case statement Range(" Ai:Cj").Select Selection.Copy Sheets("monthly").Select ' I want the upper left cell of the pasted area to be A11 Range("A11").Select ActiveSheet.Paste
I get an error saying that I should select one cell and then paste. But I thought that that is what I did...
I have a range of amounts in Sheet 1 from F7:Q13 and im using the find method to search for the active and non active values in the cell. Which means that if there's a value in the cell it will transfer the value in Sheet 2, if nothing is found in the cell the cells in Sheet 2 will return as nothing or null.
I think the problem lies on the FindWhat variable. Im getting a compiled error which im not sure what is it.
I've attached the spreadsheet so you get a better idea of the problem that i encountered.
When I copy the tab and change some of the data within the cells, I want the macro refer to the chart on the current tab and the values in the current tab - as currently it refers to only "Chart 2" and the values in the tab 'Figure 2 - WE OPH'.
I've tried changing the sheet name to ActiveSheet.name but that doesn't seem to work.
I have a form that loads and depending on the word selected in the drop down the following code loops through cells Q2:AC2 until it finds the word in one of those cells (the word will always be in one of the cells)
Code: For Each c In Range("Q2:AC2").Cells If c = period Then c.Select
The active cell it finds will always change, i know I need something to code the active cell back but I don't know what it should be.
I have a range of unlocked cells (B5:S10) that users enter data in. This sum of this data is then charted. The formula (sum) in a cell equals zero even when there is no data entered by the user. This zero is then charted.
I need to be able to plot the zeros if the user enters zeros but not plot the zero if the cells are blank.
What I was attempting to do is to use the worksheet change event to add the formulas to a cell so that the chart does not plot the value until something was added.
In my change event I need to know that a cell in the range (B5:S10) was changed and that if it was D7 (for example) that I need a formula enterd in D11 [=SUM(D5:D10)]. If it was I5 then the formula would have to go in I11 [=SUM(I5:I10)].
Need to find the first cell above the active cell containing any sort of variable (integer, string value, cell fill colour, named range, etc...).
For example, a column contains multiple integer values between 1 and 10. I would like the macro to "locate" a specified value, say 3. Ideally the macro will select the first cell matching this criteria, located above the active cell. Once located, the resulting cell will be added to a range to be copy-pasted to a new worksheet.
I am planning to use this code for various applications in a workbook I am creating. At present the code will be used to locate string values, and cell fill colours. It is also likely this will extend to other types of variables in the future.
I've found information relating to the find function, but nothing specifically to find the first result above the active cell.
So, I just started checking Excel Macros. I'm working on a quite large data base where I need to search for a given part number and then move N columns to the right and display the text inside that cell on a message box.
I am just learning to use VBA and this may be the most simple task ever, but I can't figure it out. I've searched for all of the keywords I can think of, but can't find a solution...
I have a list of names in a sheet. Other columns in this sheet contain data like amount charged, amount paid, etc. This sheet must be manually updated (because the other program won't export the information I need) periodically to ensure proper billing/payment application in the original software (all transactions are handled by other people that I don't trust).
I sort the list so that the all names that are the same (ie John Doe) are together.
A short example list looks like this:
Jeremy Apple John Doe John Doe John Doe Jimmy Kravitz Jimmy Kravitz
In updating my sheet, I set up a macro that will input todays date in one of the columns for all occurences of that name (so, every row that contains John Doe in column B, column V will have todays date in it).
Currently, in order for my macro to work properly, I have to manually make the activecell the first occurrence of 'John Doe'. When I'm ready to update 'Jimmy Kravitz', I have to select the first occurrence of 'Jimmy Kravitz' and so on.
Here's my question - Is there a way to use a VBA macro to find the first occurrence of 'John Doe' (and automatically 'know' which name I am updating)? Basically, I need a macro that will take the information that is in the cell in column B in the active row, find the first row that has that same name, and make that cell (column B) the active cell...
I have an embedded chart on my worksheet.I can select a cell behind the chart using the keyboard arrow keys.Is there a way of doing this using a mouse click,so that I know which cell i am pointing to/choosing?
I am looking for VBA that will add the value of the current active cell on the sheet to the value in cell F12. The maximum value of F12 cannot exceed 1000. So if the value in F12 = 950 and 100 is the value in the active cell the maximum value in F12 should show 1000, not 1050.
I'm trying to take the value of a cell and use the value as a name for the row. If cell a1 has value = June. I want to change the name of row 1 to June. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong with the following code.
Sub Name_a_row() ' ' Dim TheName As String Dim RowNum As Integer TheName = ActiveCell.Value RowNum = ActiveCell.Row ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="TheName", RefersToR1C1:="=Data!R&RowNum"
I have a list of items in cells b2 to z2. I want to display the contents of those cells in b2 dependent on what the active cell is. For example if the active cell is in column b I want a2 to show b2. If the active cell is in column C I want A2 to show C2, etc.
I want to automatically put information from several cells into one cell, when these cells are clicked. Let's say that A1:J8 is the range were a cell can be clicked and if a cell is clicked in that range the value of these cells should be put in cell A9. If possible I want to avoid private subs in a worksheet. I preffer to have a macro running, so I can decide when to stop this routine.
I've got 3 columns say A,B,C. Column C (row1) = Column A (row1) * Column B (row1). I'm trying to apply this formula to all the cells in Column C. I've tried typing the following formula in all of column C. =OFFSET(ActiveCell,0,-1) * OFFSET(ActiveCell,0,-2)
Obviously the ActiveCell reference doesn't work. This would be simple in VBA but here on excel how would I reference to the cell itself where the formula is contained?
I have a spreadsheet with DDE formulas in the cells. When the contents of any cell changes I want to DRAW A BORDER (NOT CHANGE THE BACKGROUND COLOR !!) AROUND THE CELL .. When another cell's value is updated I want to REMOVE the border which was around the"OLD" cell and now place a border around the most recently changed cell, etc.
Only the newest active cell should have a border around it !!!
how to simply find out what the active cell is (This would be the cell the curser is currently in). It is already displayed in the Name Box on the menu in Excel, but I can't find a way to access this data automatically.
