VBA Data Label Format

I have a plot that shows the position of a drifting buoy in the ocean. I have created a second series that is just the most recent position of that buoy. Everyday, using VBA, I update the chart 2nd series to point to the location of the new lat and long. For this second series, which is only one point, I have data labels turned on. I replace the data label text with the date and time of that latest position. Here is my problem. I can not find a way to format the date. No matter what I try, it has the format mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm AM/PM. I really just want it to be a 24 hour clock (mm/dd/yy hhmm).

I have tried forcing the format of the variable date_of_latest_pos, I have tried changing the cell format that contains the actual date and time...

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection("Latest Position").ApplyDataLabels AutoText:=True, LegendKey:= False, ShowSeriesName:=True, ShowCategoryName:=False, ShowValue:=False, ShowPercentage:=False, ShowBubbleSize:=False
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection("Latest Position").Points(1).DataLabel.Select
Selection.Characters.Text = date_of_latest_pos
Selection.AutoScaleFont = False
With Selection.Characters(Start:=1, Length:=23).Font
.Name = "Arial"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 8
.Strikethrough = False
.Superscript = False
.Subscript = False
.OutlineFont = False
.Shadow = False
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End With

Userform Label Format
I am trying to format a label as a number with two decimals. I have searched this and other forums and see code such as:

Label18.Caption=Format(sheet1.Range("A!").Value, "0.00")

It always gives me an error: "Wrong number of arguements or invalid property assignment"

The word "Format" is highlighted.

I have tried putting the code in userform Initialize and also Activate. I am using Excel 2002.

(x,y) Scatter Plot Label Vba Implementation
I have a scatter plot with 150 points closely grouped. Enabling the label option clutters the graph. A cleaner way would be to hoveri the mouse over a data point and pop-up a box displaying it's value (x,y) as well as a label contained in an adjacent column.


The default functionality is that when the mouse hovers over a particular point the yellow pop-up box appears withData set label
Data point name "x"
Data point (x,y)
and one can choose to show "label-name-point" or just "point" by accessing the Tools-Options_Charts menu item. What I would like instead is to hover the mouse over a particular point and get the yellow pop-up box with the following functionalityData set label
Data point name "label"
Data point (x,y)
where the label is contained in an adjacent column in my data spreadsheet.

I read a post by Andrew Poulsom that stated it is probably not possible to customize the yellow pop-up baox and then offered some vba code to allow a mouse click to bring up a label. I was wondering how to implement this code in the spreadsheet. Also, does the graph have to be embedded in the worksheet "as object in", or can I use "As new sheet"?

VBA Importing Data From Access To Excel - Date Format Incorrect
I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.

The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:

In Access date column headers from query are:
09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.

But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as:
01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc

It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

Public Sub bttnDMA_Click()
'DMA Figures in Excel format
'Creating the Recordset
Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
Set cnn = CurrentProject.Connection
Dim MyRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset
MyRecordset.ActiveConnection = cnn

Data Label Overlap
trying to update pie charts via vba. This is working fine, but I have a problem with the data labels. The number of categories can change each time the macro / data is run. This is as it will be for different customers that takle different products.

When the data labels are remapped, those with a small percentage end up placed untop of one another. I have already played with grouping these small percentage together into an 'Other' Category which works fine, but I know I will be asked to split this out.

Is it possible to add a condition that states 'DATA LABELS MUST NOT OVERLAP' - or is there some way of working around this to the same effect...

Look For Label And Data In Adjacent Row
I have a spreadsheet with rows of data. Presently, there are three pairs of columns. The first column in each pair has a label (E, F, R). The second column represents the number assigned to the label (e.g. 30, 40, 60, 70). The labels may appear in the first column of any of the three pairs. I would like to reorganize the data in three columns, which are headed, E, F, R, with the associated number underneath the heading. I have attached a sample spreadsheet showing the desired results.

Conditionally Label Chart Data Series
I think that this is probably rather simple, but the answer is eluding me, I cannot find anything that helps online either. I have a set of data that looks similar to the sample below, however it is quite a bit longer. I would like the 'Effect' as the X axis, with the 'Score' as Y. This basically shows three columns, which is fine. However I would also like to use the 'ID' as the label against each plot point and I'd like each plot point to look the same.

The problem I am having is that to get the labels to show, I am having to add each series manually, which is rather time-consuming. Is there a correct (faster) way of doing this as I think I'm missing something obvious!

Label Scatterplot Chart: Plot Two Values Against Each Other Using A Scatterplot, And Label Each Service
I'm working for a local authority who have been given a mass of survey data. In this particular task, residents of each small district within our area have been asked their levels of satisfaction with a service, and how important they think that service is. I want to plot these two values against each other using a scatterplot, and label each service.

Excel does not automatically allow this so I used a very good sheet from the forums here: Attach labels with names to the points in a scatter plot. It's the top file, and works well. However, I can't seem to customise it for my own data.

Problems include:

- Excel often freezing when I try to run it
- Not all the data being picked up for the chart
- Incorrect labels being picked up..........

Excel Not Showing 0 Amounts As Data Label In Charts
I am building automated solutions where graphs source data is based on outcome of formulas. In case of line graphs I use #N/A as result if no data is available or formula results into an error - this way the data point and data label will not be shown in the graph.

However this does not work for bar graphs - with #N/A, #DIV/0, 0 or "" the bar itself is not shown but the data label is shown (as #N/A or 0). How can I set-up my formulas so that if result is 0 or formula is in error that the graph does not display the data label.

Attached excel file shows same data in 2 charts - 1 line chart (=OK) and 1 bar chart (=not ok). The data for chart is pulled from 2 other tabs (week&month) and merged into 1 data source for graphs.

VBA: Format Amts Into Text $ 9.99 Type Format
Need to create a set of aligned text amts from various cells...Tried Format but unable to get right combination...I've looked at many threads and most seem related to getting amt from text instead of reverse.

Cell may contain nothing or a monetary amt, negative or positive. Output needs to be in format of "$9,999.99-" or similar...with leading zeros suppressed but a min of "$ 0.00" showing, so that above/below amts with be decimal point aligned in a fixed font situation.

I've almost gotten my routine finsihed but this is last remaining obstacle.

Format Climatic Data From A Weather Station Into A Desired Format
I need to format some climatic data from a weather station into a desired format. There are a lot of cut&paste and transposing involved. I think it will be easy but tedious for anyone trained in VB to write a macro but unfortunately I am not. I've tried recording a macro but it turns out that it is not general enough to deal with all the spreadsheets that I've got.

I've attached a spreadsheet which shows the original format (in sheet 1) and the desired format (in sheet 2). To briefly describe, I only need the temperature data for 8am and 2pm, the rest of the information in sheet 1 is useless to me.

Conditional Format In VBA


Disregard the First Table. I cant remove it. refer to the Second Table

Here is the Code in Start Button

Dim i As Integer
Results = MsgBox("Are you working on " & ActiveCell.Value & " today ?", vbOKCancel, "")
If Results = vbOK Then

Date Format In VBA Userforms
I have a spreadsheet with some data on it along with a button that activates a pop-up/form, which reads from a row of data and inputs it into specified textboxes on the form. All the data comes up nicely in the form, however it doesn't retain the formatting of the dates.

I have have a column title as "Issue Date", and the data in that column is dates. For example, the date would be written as follows in the actual cell "17Sep2009" (as per my custom formatting). However, when VBA reads it, and inputs it into the form, it displays it as numbers. In this case, it reads "17Sep2009" as "40073".

I also have a column that displays money info, so a cell would read "$10.00", however VBA reads it, and inputs it into the form as "10".

I can't change the formatting of the cell to text or anything, as the date formatting is beneficial to some other coding I have going on in the sheet.

I have the following code written to have VBA pull from the cells and display the info in the form:

Currently, the macro looks for file.P01 then file.P02 etc until it gets to file.P09 by increasing the value of 'i'. The trouble I am having is to get the variable 'i' to have a leading zero when the value is less than 10.

Launching Another File Format From Vba
My company uses database software called Business Objects. At the moment few people are using the program and its reports as they can't find the key ones or workout how to run them correctly. As everyone is comfortable with excel. I am creating a series of forms to guide my users to the key reports. I like this method because it is very user friendly and I can add lots of descriptions. Unfortunately my programming knowledge is limited to excel so I can't write a standalone program as you might suggest I do.

The problem:
I want to launch the non-excel files using VBA. For example, a user will click on a "Customer" button to see a second form containing a list of customer reports. The user will then click on the button containing the name of the report they want to launch. I want the file to open. I tried using hyperlinks in an excel spreadsheet which works fine for opening the non-excel files, but it isnít nearly as user-friendly or interactive.

Conditional Format (vba Loop Is The Answer)
i have 3 columns and hundreds of rows.... i first applied conditional format to the first row (A1, B1, C1) only. no problems so far as A1 has value '0' which is minimum and B1 is the highest value '200' and C1 is variable value between 200' and 0'. Im using icon sets in this one.... now i want the below rows to have the same conditional format.... how do i do that because when i select them all rows and columns and try to apply conditioanl formatting the outcome is not the same as i got previously in the first somehow combines all the values rather working only on the individual row. i hope u get wat im tryin to say....

i come across a solution in my mind to give a loop in vba to do the conditional formatting each row seperately untill empty cell of column no. 4.... but doing this will obviously eat lot of memory in excel cause of each row will have a seperate conditional format.....
