VBA To Click Button On Sheet In Another Workbook?

Sep 27, 2012

Is there any way, through VBA code, to click a button on a sheet in another workbook. This button has a macro assigned to it. What I need to be done is this :- the workbook which has the button is open. The code should click the button on a specific sheet. On this action, the macro assigned to the button should get called.

I could just call the macro which is assigned to the button in this code. But the requirement is that the button click operation should call the macro.

I have found that one can do quite a lot with the code, but this seems to be one a whole different level. I came across a possible solution in the below mentioned link but it doesnt seem to be working for me. [URL]

Sending Data From One Sheet To Another With Click Of Button?

May 21, 2013

I need to get the data from the sheet 1 added to the sheet 2 by clicking on the ADD DATA button in the sheet 1. The sheet 1 will be filled in multiple times like a form by the users, so once the data is added to the sheet 2 I would like sheet 1 to have no data filled in the column to the right. The data will be only filled in the right column, thus the left column should not be copied to the sheet 2.

Automatically Writing Date To Sheet On Button Click ()

Dec 1, 2007

I have a user form where the user selects items from combo boxes or enters information into text boxes. When the user clicks the command button the selections are written to the spreadsheet along with an auto number. I am trying to add an auto date in as well and have been playing with using the NOW() function but I am having some problems calling it. Here is the
Private Sub cmbtnAdd_Click()
Dim NewRow As String
Dim NewNumber As String
With Worksheets("Sheet1")
NewRow = .Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row + 1
NewNumber = .Cells(NewRow - 1, 1).Value + 1
.Cells(NewRow, 1).Value = NewNumber
.Cells(NewRow, 2).Value = Me.ComboBox2.Value
.Cells(NewRow, 3).Value = Me.TextBox1.Value
.Cells(NewRow, 4).Value = Me.TextBox2.Value
End With
End Sub

I was trying something like this:

Dim NewDate As Date
NewDate = DateSerial(Year(dDate), Month(dDate), Day(dDate))
.Cells(NewRow,5).Value = New Date

Click Button To Rename Sheet Tabs Based On Range

Jul 20, 2006

I searched a few times for the answer to my problem, using different search terms, but I've come up somewhat empty (this *might* be because I'm not up-to- speed with Excel's terminology?). Anyway, my problem is this: I have a workbook which is designed to track various data for a corporate training course ( sheets for attendance, grades, tool logins, etc). After all of these are sheets numbered 1-25 (we never have more than 25 students in a class, but usually around 20). The numbered sheets correspond to the student's number in the on the class list sheet (so, the first student would have personal "report card" information on sheet 1; the eleventh student in the class list would have their information on sheet 11, etc).

What I would like to do is have some way of putting a button on the class list sheet which would look at student list and rename the sheets to correspond to the student names. For example, if the fifth student listed was 'John Doe', it would rename his personal sheet ('5') to 'John Doe'. Obviously, I would need to do it for all of the students, and IDEALLY it would then get rid of any numbered sheets which are not used (having 21 students would only rename the first 21 sheets, but then hide sheets 22, 23, 24, and 25).

Click The Master Button, That Would Click Another Button On A Different Worksheet

Oct 22, 2008

Running into this issue of "transworksheet macros"

I have a master "update" commandbutton on sheet 1. I have two sub "update" buttons on sheet 2 and 3 respectively.

What I would like to do is have the user click the master button, that would "click" the two sub buttons so they run their respective macros on their respective worksheets (within the same worksheet.

I have tried pasting the macro code in the master button, telling it to select the sub worksheet and then run the macro, but the marco runs itself on the master worksheet instead.

Go To Specified Sheet & Workbook By Double Click

Jul 24, 2007

In a folder I have 2 excel files the the first file called products & contains sheets with the names of each product, in each product sheet I recorded the names of some customers.

The second file is called customers & contains sheets with the names of each customer.

when both files are open & I am in the products file I want to be able to select a product lets say shampoo double click on one of the customers & automatically go to the specified customer in the customers file.

I inserted this code in every sheet of products file & things went fine:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

For Each wb In Workbooks
For Each wk In wb.Worksheets
If wk.Name = Target.Value Then
MyWin = wb.Name
End If
Next wk
Next wb

Instead of inserting this code on every sheet module (I might have 60 sheets) I tried to insert it

Just In Thisworkbook module but it didnít work:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

For Each wb In Workbooks
For Each wk In wb.Worksheets
If wk.Name = Target.Value Then
MyWin = wb.Name
End If

Command Button Click Creates New Rows Above Button?

Nov 8, 2012

I currently am using a form button to create new rows.

I need two different kind of buttons. I have a button that does this-

VB:
Sub InsertRow()
'this inserts a row where the button is clicked.
Dim r As Range

[Code]....

However, when I try and create these codes using a Command button (I need it for the color), I get the error

"unable to get the buttons property of the Worksheet class"

P.S one other thing, say the button is in row 3, and Cells A1 and A2 are merged, when you click the button in row 3, it should extend the merge to A3.

Macro With A Button Click

Click A Button On A Webpage

Jun 6, 2009

I am using VBA to pull a web query to get sone info from an intranet site.

Unfortunately, the data it pulls is usually old. I've found the only solution is to open a browser manually and to click the Reload button on the web page then navigate back to my workbook and run it again. Then it will pull the most up to date info.

I've tried several ways of forcing a refresh of the data, but have not figured it out yet.

I have been trying the past couple of hours to use the send keys button to tab down to the button on the page I need and to hit enter, thus forcing a refresh, but I can't seem to get that to work either.

Search And Inputbox When Click On Button

Aug 20, 2009

once the command button on sheet 1 is clicked, a input box appears which asks "has this number been entered" and has a place to enter a number within the input box.

Once the info is entered in the input box, it searches through sheet 2 for the number. If the number is found, I would like for a box to pop up with the number found and the name that is next to the number from sheet 2.

If the number is not found, I would like for a box to pop up and say "number not found"

Activating Userform With A Button Click

May 19, 2013

When my worksheet is activated, code is executed which defaults the values in my userform controls. The users enter the appropriate data, and with the clicking of a command button, the data is entered into the worksheet. When that is complete, the idea is to return the user to same form, in a default value so they can enter in new data for submission. This will continue until the user selects the Exit button onthe userform.

Code:
...
With wshairport
.Range("A" & llastrow).Value = uf2.ident
.Range("B" & llastrow).Value = uf2.freq
.Range("C" & llastrow).Value = slocation
.Range("D" & llastrow).Value = slat
.Range("E" & llastrow).Value = slong
End With
Application.EnableEvents = False
uf2.Activate

This is resulting in an 'Object doesn't support this property or method.'

I'm not sure about the appropriateness here of the 'Application.Enableevents=False" here. Since the fields of the userform have change events associated with them, I need to disable that what the userform activation code defaults them.

UserForm-trying To Open With A Button Click

Nov 8, 2002

I have a User Form that I am trying to open with a button click. I made a copy of one workbook with a new name. The Buttons and Macros were all copied as well. I modified the old Userform so that I can release Version 2 of the Userform, and now when I click on the button in Excel, I get the following error : Object doesn't support this property or method. Run-Time error '438'.

The code assigned to that button is as follows:

Sub Button121_Click()
'
' Button121_Click Macro
' Macro recorded 8/11/2002 by Kale Mayfield

'
UserForm1.Show

End Sub

What am I doing wrong? HELP! Once you have the Userform populated with ComboBoxes,Textboxes, etc., is there now way of making changes to that Userform? If you make changes and rearrange the locations of the buttons and boxes and labels... does that mess up the button in Excel that opens the form to begin with?

Check Against Last Click On Command Button

Jul 16, 2008

I'm working with 2 different sheets, sheet1 and sheet2.

I'll type in entry 1 to 4. 2 comboboxes, 2 cell values. then click on the command button1.

i'll pass over the values to sheet2 like this:
array(comboBox1.value, range("a2").value, comboBox2.value, range("a4").value

I was asked to check against the last time the user click on the command button.
if combobox1.value, range("a2").value, comBoBox2.value, range("a4").value MATCHES exactly the last entry in sheet2, it'll give a popup Box before it continues.
