VBA Macro To Move Shape Around Spreadsheet

I am trying to write a set of code, part of which involves moving a shape around an excel spreadsheet in a square shape within a certain range. It is based on a random number generator. The shape moves a number of cells to the left/right/up/down depending on the random number (d) multiplied by 16. If the shape reaches a row or column border point, it will change direction but continue moving in the new direction until it has gone as far as was determined by the random number (*16). I have some code which works fine... to a point! The shape starts out, reaches a right hand border, changes direction to go up, reaches another border, changes again and goes left, but then when it comes to change dorection the 3rd time and go down, it fails. The direction of the shape is determined by a word in cell A1 - left/right/up/down:

Sub MoveRed()
Application. ScreenUpdating = True
Dim d As Integer
Dim i As Integer

d = Range("AZ1").Value

With ActiveSheet.Shapes("RedDot")
For i = 1 To 16 * d

Select Case Range("A1").Value

Move Shape Across Screen
I'm trying to write some VB to draw a line shape and then move it across the screen. I have managed to draw the line and have used the following code to move it:

Set linetest = ActiveSheet.Shapes(1)
For iCount=1 To 100
linetest.Left = linetest.Left + 1
linetest.Top = linetest.Top + 1

i) I can only actually see the line move if I run the code using the debugger and step through the loop. If I just run the code then I only see the end position of the line (note, this is not an issue with the calculation being too fast for Excel to display the line. I tried the code with a delay loop in it and it made no difference). I can get it to work by calculating the active sheet for each iteration of the loop, but this means I have no control over the speed of the movement; incidentally it moves very slowly).

ii) This seems a poor way to move the line. Is there anyway to move the start and end node of the line rather than using the left, top, width and height properties (i.e. can I get the old coordinates of the points and set them to different numbers)?

Move A Shape In A Straight Line Between 2 Cells
if I wanted to slowly move a shape (small circle) in a straight line between cells R20 & W7.

The straightest line possible is by drawing an arrow line between the 2 cells.

Is there a way to then use this arrow as a guide for moving the shape?

In other words, would it make sense for the porgram to draw a transparent line between the cells, and use that line as a "path" along which to move the shape?

I just don't know if this is worth the trouble.

Find And Move VBA Macro
find and move VBA macro - funky when WhatToFind in more than one row

Making a program that will find a value input by the user, and move the row of the cell that value is found in to the top of the list.

Works perfectly if there is only one row containing the search string. If more than one row contains the search string, it moves things to odd places.

here's the

Sub FindAndMoveToTop()
Dim FirstCell As Range
Dim NextCell As Range
Dim WhatToFind As Variant
'Window prompt allowing user to define WhatToFind
WhatToFind = Application.InputBox("What are you looking for?", "Search", , 100, 100, , , 2)
'If WhatToFind is a value and not blank, move on
If WhatToFind <> "" And Not WhatToFind = False Then
'Start with first worksheet
'Start at first cell
'Find the first cell containing WhatToFind (specified by user)
Set FirstCell = Cells.Find(What:=WhatToFind, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)
'If FirstCell exists, move on
If Not FirstCell Is Nothing Then
'Ok, First Cell is set

Move Spreadsheet To End Of Workbook
I m moving a spreadsheet to the end of a workbook, however the amount of spreadsheets in the workbook increase each day.

Two files will be involved in this macro. 1) Headset Out Time and 2) Headset Out Time "Month". Where month is the current month.

Command Button 2 located on the file Headset Out Time will execute the macro. The macro will open Headset Out Time "Month" then move the first spreadsheet (different name on a daily basis), from Headset Out Time to the end of the workbook Headset Out Time "Month". Then it will reset the spreadsheet (this part i can handle)

Positioning Shape Objects In VBA
I am trying to work out how to pisition a new object in some VBA code, I can do this if I copy an object then click on a cell, e.g. H74 then paste, but the properties for an object want this in points.

ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeOval, 50, 50, 26.25, 26.25).Select

What I want to do is select the cell H74, then find the coordinates for that cell then use these when creating the shape, I appreciate these coordinates will need to be assigned to variables, but how do you get then from a given cell?

Dynamically Add A Hyperlink To A Shape In VBA
I am trying to create a table of contents for a very long list of items on a sheet. I am using shapes on a seperate sheet to act as buttons, that go to the location on the correct sheet using a hyperlink. I found how to add a hyperlink using a macro, but I can't find how to create a hyperlink for the shape using a macro.

What is the code I would need to set a hyperlink to "Sheet1!A2:Sheet1!C2", with the a tooltip of "Some text"?

Here is how I create the shapes:

With myDocument.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRoundedRectangle, 10, IntVerticalOffset, 630, IntHeight)
.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(204, 255, 204)
.Line.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0)
.TextFrame.Characters.Text = StrRowName
.TextFrame.HorizontalAlignment = xlHAlignLeft
.TextFrame.Characters.Font.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.TextFrame.Characters.Font.FontStyle = "Bold"
.Locked = True

VBA To Move A Row Up When Value Is Not Zero
I have 8 rows (B345:B352) that have a formula similar to this:=IF(Site1!B53>0,CONCATENATE(Site1!$B$53," Scansys 942 @ ","$",Site1!D53,".00"),""). By the way, can the formula be shortened? I tried formatting the merged cell but nothing changes.
When Site1!B53=0, then there's nothing in the cell.That's how I want it. But say, row 3, Site3!$B$53 >0 how do I programatically move (copy/paste?) row 3 to row 1 (since row 1 and row 2 are blank)? In other words, Since rows 1 & 2 is blank, I don't want the two empty rows there, so I would like to move row 3 up to row1.

Move Files Into Directories Using VBA?
In my Excel file, I have three columns: A, B and C. Column A holds the folder names. column B holds the files hash names. And in column C, i keep the files real names, i.e:

A1.value = Contract folder

B1.value = 23ffryu567894lkgj090

C1.value = picture1.jpeg

On my hard drive, I have all the folders (column A data) already created inside a folder called directories: E:directories... There is another directory on my drive in which I keep all the hash files: E:infiles

And all I would like to do now, is to write a piece of code to read all three columns row by row and based on the data in that row, moves the hashed file into their proper directories and rename them to their real name. In the example above, the program should read the data found in the first row: A1, B1 and C1 and move the hash file named 23ffryu567894lkgj090 to E:directoriesContract folder and rename the hash file to picture1.jpeg

VBA Code To Move Or Copy Data
I would like to copy or move data from one worksheet to another automatically. I have one sheet (Data) with multiple pieces of data for specific individuals. I have several other sheets titled their last name. Can data for example from John Doe be copied to the sheet Doe and data for John Smith be copied to sheet Smith. In essence I would like the sheet to paste everything below John Doe to Doe's sheet and recognize the next name and past that into the next sheet and so on. It may be several different codes, Im ok with that.

One other item all cells do not have data I do need the blank cells copied as well at to not lose the formatting. There is also a blank 2 rows between each person.

If you need a copy of what the data looks like I can send it.

Macro Fixes Macro: Copies Tabs From The Spreadsheet
I am working on a macro that copies tabs from the spreadsheet the macro (button) is located in, creates a new book for them, and then pastes values so that no formulas still exist. The problem I am having is with named ranges. The named ranges do not reference the new sheet, but rather the old spreadsheet. This is fine because the new file is solely for presentation, however, one macro (which selects print ranges based on user selected checkboxes) tries to reference the old spreadsheet once it runs. I would like the macro that I currently have working, to also make this macro in the NEW spreadsheet so that it can still highlight the correct print area when used. The macro does not reference the name of the workbook at any point, it is purely "Range("ai10") type references so I don't understand why it is trying to open the old sheet back up.

Vba On Shared Spreadsheet
I have a 4 MB Excel file containing some very basic VBA that is shared on a server (it is a large file because it contains LOTS of "VLOOKUP" functions). But the VBA only works a part of the time. I assume the reason it might not work is because the server at that time was under high traffic and thus the VBA failures can be traced to poor server performance at that time.

Trying To Move My VBA Programming To The Next Level And Use More Efficient Code
I'm trying to move my VBA programming to the next level and use more efficient code.

I'm wondering if there is a faster way to run the loop below, perhaps removing the 'For c = 2 to LastRow' as it seems a little clunky to me.

For c = 2 to LastRow

If Cells(c, Range("Product_Type").Column) = "" Then _
Cells(c, Range("Product_Type").Column).Interior.ColorIndex = 41

Next c
I've seen a similar thing somewhere where it was all done in one statement without the loop.

Spreadsheet That Incorporates A VBA Calendar
I have been trying to complete a excel spreadsheet that incorporates a VBA calendar. You will know the sort of thing that I mean, the user clicks on a cell and a calendar appears then the user clicks a date and the date is added to the active cell. The reason why I have to do this in VBA is because the finished file is going to be stored on my works server and it doesn't have the calendar activex add-in installed.

Well I have made a little progress. However, I have now become stuck. the link below will give you the file that I got so far. If you extract the file then click on cell A1 a calendar will appear. However, you will see that when you try to change the month it is stuck on January and I do not know how to cure the problem.

I should add that the code that is written within this spreadsheet was not written by me. It was originally written by another person whom I am no longer able to contact. Unfortunately my knowledge of VBA is not that of the original author.

Macro To Move Rows And Organize
I have been trying to do this for 3 days using "Record Macro", but something always seems to be messed up. The main problem is that the worksheets are protected and the macro asks for the password.

Here is a calendar sheet that I've been working on. It contains the calendar on sheet 1(not important) and a client roster on sheet 2. The client roster gets filled quickly, and obviously gets unorganized. What I'd like to do is create a macro so that when a date is entered into column AA (when a client is discharged), that entire row is moved onto sheet 3 (Discharged). At the same time, I'd like all of the names in column A alphabetized.

I even tried to create an "Organize" button so that the users could just click it and alphabetize. The problem I ran into with that was that the users are using Office 2000, and the names get alphabetized but all of their information no longer matches up.
