VB - Paste In Last Active Cell

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:

Paste Formula To Specific Row In Active Column
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"

Find Method To Search For The Active And Non Active Values
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.

Identify Active Cell And Use The Column To Add Formula To Another Cell
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)].

Go To First Cell In List That Matches Contents Of Active Cell
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...

Return Maximum Of Active Cell & Arbitrary Value To Cell
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.

It should do this on the click of a button.

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?

Change Active Cell Value On The Fly
I need to input a long list of steel sections in Excel. The steel sections have names like HEA200, HEA120, HEB 400, HEM300 etc.

I was thinking that this could be done easier by using codes for the section prefixes (HEA,HEB, HEM etc) and that the cell value would change automatically.


For example:

I input "1100" - this would change on the fly to HEA100
I input "2200" - this would change on the fly to HEB200
I input "5200" - this would change on the fly to UNP200

I know I could do this by using a lookup function in another cell, but I want it all to happen in the same cell.

Use Active Cell For Row Number
There is a chart encompasing column A, B and C. The column D has certain numbers stored in its cells. All I wont is to build a code which would check the value of the cell in column D which is in the same row as the active cell, and then paste certain date into the active cell - basing on the value of the cell in column D.

Here an example:

Sub pasteif()
first one) column D has
'if the value is i.e 2 then it should paste into the active cell whatever there is in Range F1:G1
'if other value is present in this case in cell D1 (it is always the D column) then other range would copied into the active cell
ActiveCell.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

Pasting To Last Active Cell

Sum Range From Active Cell To Last Used
I Have searched existing threads but cannot find the answer to my query,

As part of a longer macro, I want to sum all cells in a column which contains data. Each day the number of cells that contain data will vary.

I have tired specifying all the cells in the column which contain data as a range, by selecting the top cell and using the

Range(Selection, Selection, Selection.End(x1Down))

But I cannot get a SUM Formula of this range. If someone could show me the correct syntax to get a sum from a range like this I would be very grateful.

Change Active Cell Color According To Name Above

' Only look at single cell changes
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
' Adjust Format range to suit
Set rng = Range("B7:H74")
' Only look at that range
If Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
' Adjust conditions to suit

Target.Font.ColorIndex = 50 ' Green

Target.Font.ColorIndex = 3 ' Blue

Insert Rows At The Active Cell
I want to be able to allow a user to insert a number of rows (they would specify the number) into a worksheet, at the active cell location. I also need the same number of rows to be inserted into the same worksheet (but much lower down) The location of which is to be governed by the location of the original inserted rows.

Having created the new rows I need all the formulas from the row ABOVE the active cell to be copied into all the newly created rows.

If active cell is A5 I want user to be able to run a macro which asks them how many rows they wish to insert. (Assume the user asks for 7).

The macro then inserts that number of rows, (starting at row 5). And additionally adds 7 rows at a location further down the worksheet (say row 105). The formulas from the row above the active cell are then copied into all the newly created rows.

2nd example
If the active cell was A9 then the macro would add 7 rows, starting at row 9 and additionally add 7 rows starting at row 109. Then formulas added.

Active Cell - Selecting Too Many Cells
I have some code as below
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select

This should basically go down a list and stop when there is a blank cell. However due to a previous operation in my excel program, it is not doing so.

Basically this list has been formed from copy and pasting from a list of formulas. some of these formulas return a result and others return "" leaving the cell empty.

When i have pasted i have used paste special/values... but it still seems to paste something into these cells because this macro wont work.

I even went and manually selected the first blank cell and pressed the delete button and when i do this it correctly selects the cells only with content, so clearly when pasting a "" value it stops the activecell operation from working..
