VBA Macro To Create & Format Text Box On Worksheet

Oct 25, 2008

I have code that creates a textbox on a worksheet, copies the contents of a cell from another worksheet to that textbox. I want to be able to select that text and format its appearence ( center the text, bold and font style and size). This is what I have so far but I do not know how to select the text that was imported.


Sub textmove()
Dim bname As String
Sheets("cover").Shapes.AddTextbox(msoTextOrientationHorizontal, 96.75, 512.25, _
230.25, 120#).Name = "client"

bname = Sheets("data").Range("a3").Value

Sheets("cover").Shapes("client").TextFrame.Characters.Text = bname

With Selection.Characters(Start:=1, Length:=17).Font
.Name = "Arial"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 10
.Strikethrough = False
.Superscript = False
.Subscript = False
.OutlineFont = False
.Shadow = False
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End With
End Sub

Generating Text File In Certain Format And CSV From Excel Worksheet Using VBA

Mar 4, 2014

The attached file "Temp.xlsm" has been provided to me. I need to generate two files from it - 1) csv 2) a text file in a certain format. It should basically look liked the attached file "InFile.txt" which is an input file for a modelling tool. The arrays and struct strings need to be within brackets and it only contains inputs. Outputs don't need to be generated.

With the code in "Temp.xlsm" so far I have been able to generate attached file "Temp.txt". The only missing bit is the formatting of arrays and structures.

Basically for row7 in "temp.xls" , if it is

Xls - In
Struct_Start - (
Array_Start - (
Array_and_Struct_Start - ((
Struct_End - )
Array_End - )
Array_and_Struct_End - ))

and members within these need to be separated by commas.

VBA Macro To Create New Worksheet, Charts, Etc.

Oct 23, 2008

I need a macro to create the following worksheets and charts from an Excel data set:

Three (3) worksheets (already created manually in attached Excel file):

1. Chart Data.
(a) Column A in Chart Data is always numbered 1 - 600 (50 years x 12 mos/yr).
(b) Column I and column Y data sets (from Prod_Month) created in Chart Data. Each data set can be identified and collated with column F in Prod_Month (API) which is unique for each dataset.

2. Rate vs. Month - plot of Daily Gas (col. Y in Prod_Month) vs. Months (col. A in Chart Data).

3. Rate vs. Time - plot of Daily Gas (col. Y in Prod_Month) vs. Calender Time (col. B et. al. in Chart Data)

At a minimum, could someone help me create the Chart Data worksheet from the data in PROD_MONTH? Charting all the columns takes time from Chart Data but any data manipulation macro(s) help.

VBA Loop Through Worksheet And Format Each Column As Text, Or Date Based On Header

Jun 30, 2006

I am trying to figure out a way to condense my code (improve my code) Right now I am using a Macro in Excel to go through a workbook by selecting each column individually and if there is something in the header then formatting that column as text. The problem with the way I am currently doing it, is that due to size limitations on the VBA code, I can only select columns A to Z, and if there is more data in the worksheet it is not formatted. Also I would like the code to check the header and if the word date is in there, format it as a date instead. Also if there is a way to delete any invalid ranges in the workbook

Sub Format()
Dim VarFileName As String
Dim VarPath As String
Dim VarSavein As String
Dim wsheet As Worksheet
VarSavein = Sheets("sheet1").Range("C2").Value
VarFileName = Sheets("sheet1").Range("A2").Value
VarPath = Sheets("sheet1").Range("B2").Value
Workbooks.Open VarPath & VarFileName
For Each wsheet In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Sheets(wsheet.Name).Select
Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.TextToColumns Destination:=Range("A1"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, _

Create Worksheet And Copy Cells Using Macro

Iam looking for macro to copy rows based on partial cell content of a column.

Macro To Create A Chart Over Used Range In Worksheet

Mar 20, 2012

I am trying to write a simple macro to create a chart over the used range in a worksheet. The first part of the macro correctly selects the used range which in this case is A1 to F19 when I single step through the macro. A listing of the macro is shown below:

Code:

Sub AddChartObject()
'
Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
Range("A1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

[Code]...

When I place the formula given in MyArea as an argument for the source data, I receive a syntax error, so obviously it is the wrong argument. Numerous attempts to correct it also failed. As a sanity check, I placed the used range in an argument for the source data and was able to create the expected chart. fix the syntax error in the macro

Macro To Create Index With Hyperlinks To Worksheet Headers

Apr 9, 2014

Can't seem to attach sample Widgets.xls. I need a macro to take the heading (note heading not sheet name) from each worksheet on a workbook (or from a range of nominated worksheets in case I don't want to index the first or last few sheets) and use it as the Description for a Index entry on a nominated sheet e.g. Sheet named 'Index'. In addition that each Description is also a hyperlink back to the sheet with the heading. In this way users can click between each entry on the index to go to the sheet and then click on the heading on the sheet to go back to the index.

Index Sheet

M21, M22 and M22-A BICYCLES1
Q21, Q22 and Q22-A BICYCLES2
R21, R22 and R22-A BICYCLES3

Taking this one step further I ideally want to save this workbook as a pdf and the hyperlinks to remain.

Macro To Create Pivot Tables And Sort Out Data In Other Worksheet

May 19, 2009

The first sheet is the row data given to me, the second one is where I want my data to be analysed automatically by macros.

I managed to create a pivot table manually to give me the info I want but then I still have to copy all the results from the pivot table sheet to my analysis sheet.

How can I create a macro able to do all that by it self? I tried to record a macro using the recorder but then when I try to play it it gives me an error straight at the beginning in the definition of the pivot table I think.

An example of what I want the pivot table to do is:
in the first sheet, go in the small table in column K and L, take the value of L1, then in the row data in column A to J, in column C look for the value in L1, once found, look for the value 1 in column J then do the average on the values in column E and put the result in my second sheet in cell F5
then do the same but look for 2 in column J and put it in F8, then 3 in F11, ... until 7 found (the data is in ss.000 and so the results in the second sheet should be formated the same way)
then do the same all over again for value in L2
etc etc etc

this should be done for the 6 values in column L, each having values up to 7 in the J column.

Then I need to do the same for other columns and not only averages but minimums as well but I can adapt the code I think.

Macro To Create And Rename Multiple Worksheet And Then Placing Relevant Data

Feb 24, 2014

I want to find a way to create multiple worksheets and matching data to be placed on appropriate sheets.

Here are more details (Please check the attached sheet screenshot as well):

Excel_Macro_Requirement.jpg

In a workbook, there is a "Master-Sheet". This master sheet contains 8 columns.

I want to create as many new worksheets after master sheet as the values are there in column B (Column 2 i.e. Ad Group). In above attached screenshot, there are 8 values (B2:B9 or A-H). So, I would like to create 8 new worksheets after the master sheet. Also, I want to rename them based on their value from Ad Group column.

Each newly created worksheet should have same columns as the master sheet . Same 8 columns with their name intact.

Finally, I want all matching data of the Ad Group values to be placed on their respective newly created worksheet. For example, worksheet A should have A2:H2 data. Worksheet B should have A3:H3 data, and so on.

Please note that same ad group may have more than one row data. But I don't want to create multiple worksheet of same name ad group. The worksheet should be just one, but all matching data should be placed in that one sheet.

I know it is a bit complex task, but I am sure there would be a way to perform this automatically - probably a macro.

Convert Dates To Text Format Using A Macro

May 16, 2007

Is there a way I can convert dates to text in a CSV file (opened via excel) using a macro?

Currently I have excel recognised dates in the first column of the format dd-mm-yyyy and a corresponding values in the second columns.

I know once I have the file open I can enter the following formula in an adjacent coloum "=text (A2, "MMM-YYYY") but I need to change the format in the existing date feild and not create a new coloum. Sure I could copy and paste the new formatted dates into the cell, but in terms of what I need to do, this is not practical as I several of these CSV files that I need to query and extract data from daily using a macro.

The macro is not currently working because the date format is wrong. I need it to appear as MMM - YYYY. When you view the date in excel it must appear like this (as it would appear in say microsoft word) and not with the underlying date format.

Macro To Pull Text File- Format And Save

Jun 29, 2007

What I am looking to do is create a Dos.bat file to be run in the middle of the night that opens Excel. From there I will need Excel to open a .txt file from a specific folder, format the file, then re-save as an .xls file.

Each of the .txt files in the specific folder is named like the following:
BCKLOG_062807
BCKLOG_062707

and a new file is being generated to the folder each night (with the new date in the filename).

Is there a way I can use the macro to loop through only the new files being placed in the folder, since the old files will already have their .xls counterpart saved ???

If this is not a clear enough description, please let me know and I will attempt to explain better.

Macro To Auto-populate Date And Time In Text Format

Jun 7, 2012

I think there's a way to use Excel to automatically create a 5-day calendar. Maybe a macro?

The date format must be dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm and it must be in text format. If its June 9, 2012 at 6pm - the correct format is: 12/06/2012 18:00

I want to post 5 times a day: 09:05, 9:55, 10:45, 16:55 and 18:00.

Column A is where the date and time goes. Ideally, I'd enter in A1 the start date and then run a macro that would automatically populate the next 5 consecutive days with the specific times above (so 25 rows total in column A).

I have to save the file as a csv file, so the date and time format has to be in text or I'll get an upload error in Hootsuite.

Excel Changing Format From General To Text During Macro Execution?

Jul 25, 2013

I have a procedure that allows me to view and make changes to data in a table. I list the current values for the item in one column and use simple formula to copy that value to another column where if there are changes that need to be made, the formula is simply overwritten. The Macro is then selected using a command button and the formulas are all overwritten using copy/paste values to keep from writing out the formula to the data table. These values are then all written back to the data table, current values are overwritten with whatever is in the update column, new data or old data.

I have one cell out of 48 that has decided to march to the tune of a different drummer. The format changes from General to Text and the formula written from the macro is what shows up in the cell instead of the value of the formula. Never a big disciplinarian, I have to wonder if I have been too lenient on the cell and this defiance is the price I have to pay.

The sheet is protected only allowing entry into the cells available for update.

Here is the bit of code that affects this cell (starting from a format of General:

Code:
Sheets("Product Data").Cells(ItemRow, 3).Value = Sheets("Update").Cells(6, 8)
Sheets("Update").Cells(6, 8).FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-6])"

I just don't see anything that would change the format, and these are the only two lines that even reference cells(6,8).

I tried to set the format for the cell from within the Macro, but with the sheet being protected, it just dumps me out to my error message.

Macro To Save Worksheet As Text File Without Blanks

Jan 27, 2009

find attached an example of the spreadsheet I am working with. Please bear in mind that this is a much simplified version of the version I am currently working on (which needs to have 1000 lines). What I am trying to achieve is allow my team to enter rows of data into the spreadsheet in a format that they will be familiar with - then hit the button on the sheet which will then take a copy of the second sheet (which looks up against the first) and spit it out in a .txt file ready to be uploaded into our computer system.

The main priority that I need to fix is that when the .txt file is opened in notepad it contains a huge amount of blank data rows at the bottom - I assume that it is taking accross all 65536 lines into the .txt where I only want the rows that have data in them in the .txt. At present our computer system will not accept the .txt due to all the blank rows (its limit is 1000 lines).

text file number two(February) is: The heading info+column A+columnC
text file number three(March) is: The heading info+column A+columnD and so on

In the heading info I have to state the period and then I need the macro to change this for every text file, that is for the january file it has to be "1 to 1", for february "2 to 2" and so on. As it is now it will always say "1 to 1" because that is the values I have entered.

Copying And Pasting Cells From A Worksheet Into A List Format In Another Worksheet

May 18, 2006

I need help with a macro for copying and pasting of cells. I believe this should not be a problem for the Excel VBA experts, but for someone who can only record macro, I'm really at a loss.

Attached is a sample file, where sheet 'Source' is an example of the sheet from which data are to be copied. The other sheet, sheet 'Final' is an example of the final format that I need. The reason I'm doing this is I'm planning to upload my data into Access and so I need to convert them into a list format.

List of target columns in sheet 'Final' and source cells in sheet 'Source':

Column A: Biz ID - not sure if I really need this, by right it should be listed automatically once I paste the data
Column B: B2 of 'Source'
Column C: B2 of 'Source'
Column D: B1 of 'Source'
Column E: row 6, relevant column
column F: column K
column G: row 5, relevant column
column H: the specific amount

So basically I'm creating an entry for every amount in the table.
