Validating Textbox

Sep 17, 2006

I have the following codes in a new workbook that has nothing else in it:

Private Sub Textbox1_Change()
Sheet1. Range("A1").Value = TextBox1.Text
End Sub

Private Sub TextBox2_Change()
End Sub

Private Sub UserForm_Click()

End Sub

This works fine in this workbook, however, if I try to use it in a workbook that has a lot of macros & userforms it doesn't work at all!

Validating Textbox On Userform And SetFocus

Feb 24, 2013

I have two userforms. When the user chooses the choice "Other" in the userform frmTradeSickOther, another userform called frmOther will be called. At this point, the user will enter some required comments in a textbox (called txtOther) and click the "Add Comment" button. If the user does not enter anything, a prompt will inform the user to type something in the textbox.

My problems: Once the user clicks okay to the prompt, frmOther is called back. When it's called back, I want the cursor to blink in the textbox. Eventhough I have SetFocus on the textbox, it does not work. I don't know why.How do I prevent the user from just hitting enter (i.e., accepting blank lines as comments) and bypassing the commenting part. The code below accounts for hitting enter once (i.e., one blank line), but not multiple times. How do I do this?

Here is what I have when the user clicks on the "Other" choice in frmTradeSickOther:

Private Sub optOther_Click()
Unload Me
frmOther.txtOther.SetFocus 'This gets the cursor to blink in textOther when frmOther is called.
End Sub

Here is what I have when the user clicks the "Add Comment" button on frmOther:

Private Sub btnAddComment_Click()
On Error Resume Next
txtOther.Value = Trim(txtOther.Value) 'This is to make sure spaces aren't accepted as a comment.
If Me.txtOther = vbNullString Then
MsgBox "Please enter the necessary information.", vbInformation, "Required Field"
Me.txtOther.SetFocus 'Here is where I set focus on txtOther.
Exit Sub
End If

'Everything below is to add comments automatically to each cell when a value is changed.

Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls("Delete Comment").Enabled = True
If Not ActiveCell.Comment Is Nothing Then
Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls("Edit Comment").Enabled = True

[Code] .......

Validating The Format Of A Userform Textbox

May 29, 2006

while trying to limit the user's input to a userform textbox to no avail. For example one textbox on the form should only be numbers and I therefore want to restrict the user to typing in a two digit code like 02 or 72 (not for calculations). Another textbox I only want to allow the user to input 6 characters in the format letter, four numbers and a letter. If the user inputs the wrong stuff a message box pops up and the focus is reset

Validating Dropdowns In IE Using VBA?

Oct 5, 2013

I have a drop down in IE in which four values are there

I will need to select each one at at time to make some change and move to next dropdown

the dropdown in IE should ideally have 4 dropdowns 01,02,03 and 04

However due to vendor errors we may have any of the above missing from dropdown or extra orderpoints in the dropdown like 05

IE.document.getElementById("vendororderpoint").value ="01" is the code to select order point 01

I need an alert in excel if any of the 4 dropdowns is missing.

Validating A Worksheet Name

Jun 28, 2007

I have a macro that creates a new sheet, the name of which is based off of an input box. Does someone have some generic code to ensure that the user inputs a valid name? Here's what I have, it only checks to see if the name is a duplicate:

'Prompt user for the name of the output sheet
newsheetname = inputbox("Name Your Output Sheet:", "Notice!", "Margin Output")

'Check whether or not the name is taken
For a = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Sheets(a).Name = newsheetname Then
newsheetname = inputbox("Name Taken. Please Rename Your Output Sheet:", "Notice!", "Margin Output")
GoTo TestName
End If

Validating A Variable In VBA

Apr 14, 2009

It's the last road-block left to making this function work. The Problem is in the If...Then statement. If A is true the formula works, but is it is not, then it returns a value. The Expression

IBGLink = (E & CustomDate & EndOfLink)
works on its own, so there is an issue with
If Application.WorksheetFunction.IsError(A) Then
Does anyone know an alternative way of validating a variable or a trick of sort that can be used here. A to E and CustoDate and CustDatePN are declared as global variables.

Function IBGLink(IBG_URL As String, FrstDate As Date, ScndDate As Date, Optional EndOfLink As String)
A = Mid(IBG_URL, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("/200", IBG_URL), 8)
B = Left(IBG_URL, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("/200", IBG_URL))
C = Right(IBG_URL, Len(IBG_URL) - (Len(A) + Len(B)))
D = Left(C, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find(".200", C))
E = Left(IBG_URL, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find(".200", IBG_URL))
CustomDate = Format(FrstDate, "yyyymmdd")
CustDatePN = Format(ScndDate, "yyyymmdd")
If Application.WorksheetFunction.IsError(A) Then
IBGLink = (E & CustomDate & EndOfLink)
Else: IBGLink = (B & CustomDate & D & CustDatePN & EndOfLink)
End If ................

Validating To And From Dates In Userform?

Feb 7, 2014

[Code] .......

So i wonder if it is possible to make a VBA code to validate these two dates? and bring a warning msg after keypress or after pressing submitcmd or any other available if available.

Validating Numerical And Not Blank?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm attempting to require a numerical entry in a cell using data validation. The function =AND(ISNUMBER(cell),NOT(ISBLANK(cell))) does not perform as intended. Unchecking "Ignore Blank" has no effect. The ISNUMBER function evaluates to TRUE on a blank cell. When used outside of data validation, NOT(ISBLANK(cell)) evaluates to FALSE on a blank cell, making me think the AND(...) function should be sufficient.

Valid entries are any number, including 0.

Can this be done without VB?

Validating A Truth Table

Dec 17, 2008

I have a truth table, let's say it is an ordinary 2^3

ID 1234567 8
condition AYYYYNNNN
condition BYYNNYYNN
condition CYNYNYNYN

Currently I am pasting the results of a DB query into the left half of my sheet and I analyse this data using Excel functions in the right half.
Among these functions are cells that evaluate the conditions above, e.g.:
cond A is evaluated as true or false in column H
cond B is evaluated as true or false in column K
cond C is evaluated as true or false in column M

What I would like is a function to place at the end of the row (col T) which will display the ID of the relevant column in the truth table that the three values together correspond to, e.g.:
A=T, B=T, C=F gives result 2
A=F, B=F, C=T gives result 7

Validating Times In A Schedule

May 2, 2007

I have been trying to achieve the following with formulas but have not been successful. I am making a simple schedule, and I am trying to validate the cells so that you can not schedule someone for multiple tasks during the same time range. In the example that I attached, Harry is diswashing from 1:00 - 4:00 but is also scheduled to paint from 2:00 - 5:00 (this should not be allowed). How can I achieve this with code?

Formula Validating Multiple Values

Mar 7, 2013

I'm trying to write a formula that passes or fails a value.

Example: The user types into a cell "ABC 123"

The ABC is a constant therefore it is just a matter of IF=(D10="ABC","pass","fail")

However the 123 must be equal to another cell (d4)

So the formula I'm trying to write looks something like IF=(D10="ABC" + D7, "pass","fail").

This does not work, any better methods?

Validating User Input Via A Message Box

Double Match And Index - Validating 2 Cells

Mar 17, 2014

I'm trying to validate 2 cells and if both matches it should return a value from column 3

I've gotten so far as it would return a error when criterea is not met.

However is it finds a match it always returns the first value.

My current formula is: =INDEX($C$24:$C$29,(AND(MATCH(A12,$A$24:$A$29,1),MATCH(B12,$B$24:$B$29,0))))

I can't find a way to make Excel validate the first 2 columns and return the value from column 3.

Formatting TextBox And Check Which TextBox Is The Active TextBox In The Loop

May 18, 2006

I am attempting to format some TextBoxes from within a For/Next loop. I need a way to check which TextBox is the active TextBox in the loop. Using i as the variable, I came up with this code snippet: Me.Controls("TB" & i).Text = Format("TB" & i, "mm/dd/yy")

If i = 3, this gives me in TextBox3 (which is called TB3) the text 'TB3' and not the value of what is in TB3. It has got to bo something simple, I just can't see it!!!

I'm building a form comprising some text boxes and drop down lists. I'd like for data (once input into the form by the user) to input, upon click of a submit button, into an excel spreadsheet, row by row.

Formatting Area Using Data Validating Drop Downs

Nov 23, 2007

I'm currently developing a calendar that has a list in it with lets say 4 options. What I want the calendar to do is calculate at a specific 'cell' the number of entries that are selected during the month.

The idea is to have a drop down on each 'day' and a counter that calculates the number of times one specific options has been selected. Once the option has been selected the 'day' will change to the corresponding color.

Validating Cell Formulas Previously Pasted As Text

Nov 5, 2009

I have generated a matrix in excel through iteration (I'm trying to calculate a dinamic covariance matrix between 50 values) which looks like this:.......

A 50x50 matrix. What I have generated in each cell is not the formula, but the text of the formula. Somehow Excel has a valid formula in a specific cell, but "doesn't know yet" that within the cell there is no longer a text. So, to make every formula run, I have to go cell by cell pressing F2, then enter, 2.500 times. Notice that in each formula I don't have something like this:

+"+COVAR(Rends!C4:AB4;Rends!C4:AB4)" or

but the valid formula: +COVAR(Rends!C4:AB4;Rends!C4:AB4)

Complex COUNTIFS / SUMPRODUCT Validating Dates Using 2 Ranges

Oct 4, 2013

I am trying to find out how many projects might be active as of a certain date.

I have a tab in excel that contains project data. For each project there is a "Start Date" and there might be an "End Date"

My question is, how do I count all the rows where the start date is Less than a given date and the end date is after a given date? The wrinkle is... if the end date is empty then obviously it should be counted as well (assuming the start date is still before the given date).

Here are the approaches I've used thus far:

=SUMPRODUCT(1*( AND(OR(RawMetrics!P:P > A2, RawMetrics!P:P = ""), RawMetrics!$O:$O < A2 )))

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

Private Sub cmdSearchButton_Click()
Dim txtbox As String 'stores lookup value
Dim x As Variant 'value for wwid txt box
Dim ForeName As String
Dim SurName As String
Dim wwid As Variant
Dim iPosition As Integer

[Code] .......

Here is my code, it does a vlookup and if the persons name is not found it will split the text entered into forename and surname but when i try and add

frmAdd.txtForename.Text = "&ForeName &"
frmAdd.txtSurname.Text = "&SureName &"

It actually displays &ForeName & in the text box of the next from rather than what ForeName is..

eg. John Smith -> search button -> user not found msg -> user wants to add user -> string is split into forename and surname -> forename = John , surname = Smith -> display this in the second form.

What code should i be using to do this, i thought that &ForeName & would work.
