VBA Shortcut For Renaming Multiple TextBoxes

Jan 9, 2010

Is there a shortcut to rename multiple TextBoxes?

So far I've been renaming each individual TextBox manually. This takes forever...

I have a lot of TextBoxes & hope there is a faster/easier solution.

Example:
TextBox1 --> OtherName1
TextBox2 --> OtherName2
TextBox3 --> OtherName3
TextBox4 --> OtherName4
TextBox5 --> OtherName5
TextBox6 --> OtherName6
TextBox7 --> OtherName7
TextBox8 --> OtherName8
TextBox9 --> OtherName9
TextBox10 --> OtherName10

Excel 2003 :: Renaming Textboxes Based On Their Position In Sheet?

Jun 14, 2013

I have an excel file (2003 version) with one sheet called sheet1.

On sheet1 I have multiple text boxes, however each text box has the same text box number "Text Box 1244" (this number appears in the top left-hand side in excel when I click the textbox).

I was wondering if it's possible to rename the text boxes based on their location on the sheet.

Eg. If i had a sheet with 5 rows of text boxes and 3 columns of text boxes (15 text boxes in total).

The top left-hand box gets renamed to "Text Box 1", then the text box below that gets renamed to "Text Box 2" and so on to the bottom of the sheet to "Text Box 5". Then the vba script would move to the text box that was to the right of the first text box (1st row again but 2nd column), and rename all the text boxes in that column ("Text Box 6" onward).

The outcome would look something like:
TB1 TB6 TB11
TB2 TB7 TB12
TB3 TB8 TB13
TB4 TB9 TB14
TB5 TB10 TB15

I'm stuck on this problem a while now and cannot find any scripts to solve it. My VBA is non-existent, I usually get by on bits of code I find on the web.

I hope each textbox has a hidden co-ordinate associated with it, then it might be possible to loop through all the textboxes based on their positions and rename them.

ActiveSheet Renaming With Multiple Worksheets

I've currently got a problem with renaming the ActiveSheet when multiple worksheets are present. The code below, utilizes existing fields on the worksheet and a concat with static text. The code works great if only one sheet is present. However, as soon as the second sheet is inserted in the workbook, I'm now receiving a 1004 error (application-defined or object-defined error).

Renaming Multiple Existing Sheets

Mar 7, 2014

I am a teacher who has created a gradebook in Excel. Each class has a student template sheet, individual sheets for each student in the class (maximum 26 students/class) which has the structure of the template and some cell referencing to the template, and a couple of mark-entry sheets and a sheet that shows the progress of all students in the class.

A number of teachers in the school have been using this gradebook and I am constantly looking for ways to make it more user-friendly. Currently, when a new course starts, a teacher opens a blank copy of the file (which has all of the sheets I mentioned above present). To set up a class, the teacher enters the students' names once on the mark entry sheet (called the "Binder Sheet"), and then changes the individual student tabs (right click...rename...) to reflect the names of their students.

I am wondering if there is a way to have the individual sheet tabs (Student 1, Student 2...Student 26) update automatically to match the names that the teacher enters on the Binder Sheet in cells A4:A29.

I would like to be able to embed the update procedure/script into the blank template so that it is user friendly for others.

Renaming Multiple Tabs By Month

Dec 19, 2008

I would like to rename multiple tabs (12 in all) on a spreadsheet by month only. I highlighted all tabs and then performed a cut and past from the previous year spreadsheet, but when the paste was complete the tab names were missing. I need January through December on the 12 tabs. Does anyone know of a shorter process than renaming each tab individually? I have called several people and asked the same question and they are curious if there is a way to do this also and asked that I let all of the know what I find out, so you would be helping quite a few people in several different companies (If that gives you happy thought, then good for all of us ).

Multiple UserForms With Multiple Numeric Data Input TextBoxes

Sep 25, 2008

When one creates multiple UserForms with multiple (identical) TextBoxes, every control must have its own event handler procedures. All these TextBoxes in my workbook are to capture numeric data to populate various cells in the workbook.

Would you recommend using a Class Module to handle these events for TextBox controls, rather than having to repeat the event handler code for each control?

And if so, do you have some code that I can use that will cover most of the events and potential error handling routines for numeric input data?

Multiple Textboxes

Nov 7, 2003

I have a number of textboxes, or other boxes, using exactly the same code. In visual basic you can assign an index to these boxes and create one code where the index number specifies the box you are working with.

I have tried finding a way to do thing in VBA, but came up against a blank. I realise that this is either not possible or very simple, but right now I am stuck with the 'not possible'. Does anyone know if the 'very simple' is an option. It would greatly decrease the size of my program, make it easier to visualise and not make me change to much each time.
Of course I refer to subs as much as possible making these routines 3 line routines (sub-call-endsub), but still there are a lot of textbox1_click() routines whereas textbox_click(index) would be nicer.

Shortcut To Print Multiple Tabs?

May 14, 2014

I am in need of creating a shortcut in excel where I can prompt a command to print a specified set of worksheets in an excel file, so in the future I can skip the process of manual selection.

I have an excel file with 50 tabs, naming such as : Microsoft, HP, IBM, Cisco, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Kaiser, BlueCross, BlueShield..... etc etc.

I want to create a "shortcut" to command excel to print a specific group of tabs with just one click. For example: Healthcare companies (Kaiser, Bluecross, Blueshield). Instead of manually select these companies each time, is there a way to create a one click shortcut that will automatically select the tabs I needed?

Total Sum Of Multiple TextBoxes

Jun 10, 2008

My userform requires a user to enter amounts in 5 different textboxes.(textbox1-5) I have created a textbox6 to attempt to capture the totals (should be numerical) of textboxes1-5, even if this textbox figure is a 0 or a minus figure. I have browsed a few other posts with roughly the same issue and have come up with some basic code as per below... the code is pasted into each (textbox 1-5) textbox_change() code.

If TextBox1.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
If TextBox2.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
If TextBox3.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
If TextBox4.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
If TextBox5.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
TextBox6.Value = CDbl(TextBox1.Value) + CDbl(TextBox2.Value) + CDbl(TextBox3.Value) + CDbl(TextBox4.Value) + CDbl(TextBox5.Value)

Format Multiple Textboxes At One Time On Initialize

I am trying to say on initialize, I want to autoformat 208 of these textboxes to $0.00 and when the users puts in an actual amount it changes to $100.00 or whatever the amount. It would be ideal to just have the textbox blank and when the users puts in something it is formatted automatically to $100.00. Just like I would if I were formatting an Excel column or cell.

Multiple Textboxes - Common Event Procedure

Apr 27, 2006

I have a userform with about 20 textboxes. I would like to use the same "data validation" procedure on each textbox as the user enters data into the form. I'll use the exit event to trigger the validation. As the user moves from one textbox to the next, the data will be validated; if it's out of range, the user will be prompted to correct it.

Is there a way to have a common event procedure so I don't have to have a separate procedure for each textbox individually? I know I can put the actual validation code in its own procedure and then call it from each event procedure but that would still leave me with 20 event procedures like:

Private Sub Textbox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
ValidateData
End Sub

Generating Multiple Textboxes With Relative Position

Apr 2, 2007

I am trying to create a form with a text box that when text is entered, it adds to the userform another textbox with that data in it. The focus then goes back to the original textbox so that more may be added indefinitely, all with relative position to the most recently added textbox. Here is what I have so far, works for one time, but not multiple textboxes. The original textbox is "txtAPID"

Private Sub MakeNewTextBox()
Dim newTextBox As TextBox
Dim ControlTop As Long
With LastAirport
ControlTop = 30
End With
Set newTextBox = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.TextBox.1", "txtNextAirport", True)
With newTextBox
.Left = 20
.Top = ControlTop + 3
.Height = 15
.Text = txtAPID.Text
End With....................

Shortcut For Entering Massive Tables Pulling Data From Multiple Sheets

Jun 16, 2014

I've already entered a variation of the formula below into 180 different columns. The only variation is where worksheet 322 is referenced. Each column references a different worksheet.

Formula:

I have at least four other tables to build of the same size, and they're each going to use this same formula with an additional IF formula housed around it. Ideally I would be able to copy the table, then run find/replace, where I could substitute = with =IF(new formula, and then run find/replace a second time and sub ))) with ))),more new formula). The problem of course is in between those steps lies a formula error preventing me from running the second step. The only alternative I can think of is to build the new formula, copy it into a word document, and run find/replace 180 times to tailor the formula for each column. That's what I did to build the first table.

Single Scrollbar To Scroll Multiple Textboxes Simultaneously

Aug 10, 2006

how does one use a single scrollbar control to change the scroll position of two textboxes simultaneously?

The reason why this is required is because the textboxes are both multilines and the data in each is related. So there isn't much point in the user scrolling through textbox1 and then trying to find the same scroll position in textbox2 by changing it's scrollbar.

I've tried changing the Curline property of the textboxes within the scrollbar change event but this is obviously a poor method as it involves changing the focus every time the user scrolls...

Search Worksheet For Data In Multiple Textboxes On Userform - Display In Temp Worksheet

Dec 23, 2013

I have a workbook with 4 worksheet that store different type of data. It also has a userform that load at start of the application which is to search the data in the workbook. The userform has a combobox where the names of the sheets are stored. when the user selects say Sheet2 in the combobox, it enables the relevant textboxes on the userform and activates the worksheet at the change event. The userform has a search button that searches all the worksheets based on the text entered in a textbox.

The problem: how to search based on 1 textbox. What I want is: say for e.g the end-user selects sheet2 from the combobox, this intern enables 4 textboxes (Name, DOB, Nationality, ID #) on the userform. The end-user should have the liberty to enter data in 1 and/or any of the textboxes. The search should be performed, that if data is only in 1 of any of textboxes then give all rows that fit that criteria and display in a temp worksheet. if say the name and dob is filled by the user than what matches both should be displayed in a temp worksheet. if say dob, name and ID# given so the search button should narrow down to fit all 3 criteria and then display result in temp worksheet. As if mentioned data can be entered in either just 1 or any or all textboxes.

E.g. the worksheet is (Columns are Name, Nationality, DOB, ID#)

row 1 = name: Steven Martin, DOB: 27-may-1993, Nationality: Trinidad & Tobago, ID #: 1234567
row 2 = name: Gary Richards, DOB: 2-FEB-1993, Nationality: British, ID #: 456789
row 3 = name: David Cohen, DOB: 27-May 1993, Nationality: American, ID #: 98765
row 4 = name: Roberto McDonalds, DOB 21-Jul-1962, Nationality: British, ID # 654321
row 5= name: Gary Richards, DOB: 01-Dec-1978, Nationality: Australian, ID # 1234567

Now if the user enters only name as "Gary Richards" and search then row 2 and 5 should be displayed in a temp worksheet. if user enters name Roberto McDonald and ID# 1234567 then it should not display anything. if user enters DOB 27-may-1993 and nationality British and ID # 1234567 then as well shouldn't display anything and should a msgbox "no data found".

Renaming Tabs With Dates

Jun 11, 2007

Iīd like to have a single workbook for each calendar year, with a tab for each date Monday through Friday (like 11-Jun, 12-Jun, etc.). I could then type the patients` names and times of arrival, among the other information I track. Alternatively, I could have a workbook for each month of each year (titled for example 2007 June or 2008 August), with the tabs titled by the date of the month (like 1, 4, 10, etc).

Is there an easy way to do this without manually renaming each tab for each day of the year?

If itīs too hard to limit the macro to create tabs for only the days of the workweek, it wouldnīt bother me if the workbook had to include every day of the week (Sunday-Saturday). I can always go back and delete the unnecessary ones.

For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Worksheets(i).Range("A1").Value <> "" Then
Sheets(i).Name = Worksheets(i).Range("A1").Value
