VBA Macro To Create & Format Text Box On Worksheet
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.

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

VBA Macro To Create New Worksheet, Charts, Etc.
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.
Macro Will Not Create New Worksheet And Workbook
Im trying to create a document that creates a new workbook when certain functions are selected and have written a macro to assist with this. Basically im working on a comprehensive checklist with all possible scenarios that will need to be tailored for use, so you can create a document with just what is applicable to you and not the whole checklist. I have attached a sample of what i mean, along with clearer descriptors of what the document is designed to do.

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

Macro To Create Pivot Tables And Sort Out Data In Other Worksheet
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.
Create Elipse With Text Inside Via A Macro
Is it possible to have a macro create an Elipse then place text inside the elipse. The text will be numeric and automatically count from a user entered starting value. It will only count in whole numbers from 1 to 4 digits in length (1 thru 9999). No leading or trailing zeros.
I am looking to do this by clicking the mouse on an image placing the elipse/text shapes with the elipse outline ontop of the text. The worksheet will have an image covering its entirety. I recorded a couple macros but, this one, is not so easy. I may have actually found new errors never seen by mankind before. (I kid).

Worksheet Format Macro Not Affecting Pasted Data
I'm currently using some pretty extensive conditional formatting macros on a worksheet (this functionality is working fine when data is directly entered into the sheet).

Convert Dates To Text Format Using A Macro
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
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:
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 Save Worksheet As Text File Without Blanks
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).
VBA Macro To Multiple Text Files Based On Headings On Worksheet
I have created an Profit&Loss excel sheet with all the accounts in column A and then the values for each month, January to December in column B to column K like this:
Column A...............Col B............Col C........Col D........Col E.....and so on
I've made a macro that creates a textfile and saves it on my desktop, but I get a text file with all the info in the same file, what I want is to get one text file for every month, that is text file number one(january) is: The heading info+column A+columnB
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.

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.
First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.
Copying And Pasting Cells From A Worksheet Into A List Format In Another Worksheet
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.
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.

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format
In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
Macro Changing Text To "?/??" Format?
I have the code below in a macro which seemed to work fine but somehow it manages to convert cells in text format into "?/??" format when the macro is run. This bit relates to the part of the code highlighted in red below.
this is causing me major problems and need to fix it asap. I've attached a copy of the workbook if it helps. Unfortunately, to run the macro you will need to change the file directory to one that will suit.
Create Custom Serialized Date Format
I am needing to create a sequential serial number using a format yyyy-nnn, where yyyy is the current year and nnn is a sequential number (2007-001). I've tried using both a formula and custom formats but cannot get the cell contents to display as desired. I've used TODAY()&"-"&"001", which gives a valid result of 39100-001, but this not what I need. I've tried many other combinations in the custom option for formatting the cell.
Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format
I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.
Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.
I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?
Converting? Format To Text Format
On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.
I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.
Create New Worksheet
how do I copy the last worksheet (e.g. sheet3) using the name keyed in the textbox1 as a sheet name? I got the following code but it creates 4 worksheets instead of just one with the new name.
Worksheets(Worksheets.Count).Name = Ucase(Textbox1.value)
If I got 10 names in column "C", can I use the following code to create the worksheets with names in column "c"?
For k= 1 To 10
Worksheets(Worksheets.Count).Name = Ucase(range("c" & k).value)
Create A New Tab For Each Entry In Worksheet
Basically i have a list of 24 invoice #'s with cost/pounds/etc.

So basically, if there are 24 invoice #'s. I would have 24 tabs created that are named the invoice numbers.
Create New Worksheet From Commandbutton
I have a userform which collects fuel data from a pump and populates 2 worksheets (pump1) and (pump2). What I am tyring to accomplish is the following:
When fuelling is finished for the day, the operator selects the (Shutdown) button. When this happens I need the userform to perform the following.
1. For each worksheet (pump1) and (pump2) create new worksheets named (pump1_date) and (pump2_date).
2. Populate these new worksheets with the entire data from the original worksheets.
3. Clear out all but the last row of data from the original sheets. The last row contains the meter readings for the fuel pumps and needs to stay as an opening ballance for the next day. This last row to become the top row of the original sheet.
Create A Button In Worksheet

Read Row 1
Create chart based on row 1 data in new worksheet 1
Read Row 2
Create chart based on row 2 data in new worksheet 2

Create A Dropdown List From Another Worksheet
I am trying to figure out how to create a drop down list on one page of a workbook with the list of items for the drop down list located on a separate worksheet within the same workbook.
I have a workbook with one spreadsheet with a list of items on it (sheet1/ingredients) and the rest of the worksheets would have the drop down list of items from sheet1/ingredients.
I have been trying to use the validation method with no luck - I just can't seem to get the source path right.
If possible I would also like the drop down list of ingredients to be self updating - the ability to continue to add items to the list and show up in the drop down lists.
When the value in the drop down window is selected I would really like / need to have the data populated in the rows to the right of the drop down window.
While asking is there any sort of auto complete so that one can start typing in the box and the ingredients that start with those letters show up to select from? (Such as if type EVA or EVAP --- then all words starting with EVA or EVAP appear instead of the entire list?)
Create New Worksheet Containing Buttons, Not By Template
I'm trying to create a macro that creates new worksheets with buttons on them that have macros attached. I've been able to produce one worksheet with a button and macro, but when the function that copies the code is looped it crashes out of Excel.
I realise that the usual method of doing this would be by templates, but this code will be run on other people's computers so the template wouldn’t exist in the location that i had specified (I think with my limited experience with VBA - Please correct me if I'm wrong). I've also tried to copy the page with the button on, but this takes too long (even with screenupdating = false) as there are many sheets to be created.
This is a stripped down version of the code that I have created for the purpose of this forum. To recap, the function that creates a new page, with button, with macro attached works. It's when it's looped that it crashes out. I've stepped through the program, and it reaches the second message box, then it gives up on life ..........
Create Worksheet If It Doesn't Exist
I need to create a worksheet and then populate it with header row containing columns names, and with values starting at row2. Before I do all this I wanted to first create a spreadsheet, I was successful in getting this done by getting a piece of code from this website. But, what if spreadsheet already exists from a previous run, then, in that case I want to clear the contents. Before I get too far ahead, I am unable to escape runtime error 9, array subscript out of range whenever I use any sort of code to check if the sheet exists.
Also, my attempts to circumvent this error by putting in errorhandling is ignored, i.e. I get the standard run-time error message box, but, not what I want the code to do is such an error occurs.
Function wsExists(wksName As String) As Boolean
On Error Resume Next

Create Newly Named Worksheet Each Day
I'm wondering if there's a way to automatically create a worksheet based on a new day. I have a workbook with a worksheet for each day that I'm working on a job. I have to copy the last day's worksheet and rename it to the next day, for example, "Day 1" becomes "Day 2". What I"m wanting to accomplish is to have a new worksheet automatically created at 12am each day that I'm on the job, and the worksheet name increment for the next day. I guess it would need to constantly monitor the computer clock for 12am.
Also, some of the functions are dependant on the previous day's values, so they would have to update as well. I'm assuming I'd need some VBA code to do this, and I'm ok with visual basic. Is there a way to do this that isn't too complicated?
Create Copy Of Worksheet & Rename
