Paste Macro - Clipboard Validation

May 5, 2009

If the user clicks the button to do the paste special macro twice - the second time they get an error (I am assuming that the clipboard has been wiped clean and they need to go back and copy the data again). The specific error message is: "Run-time error '1004': PasteSpecial method of Range class failed".

What I would like to do is add code to the pastespecial macro that looks to see if there is something to paste - if not, I want to give my own message and not the default one.

Navigating A Validation List Using A Macro

Jul 30, 2008

I have a workbook that contains a worksheet with commission data with a validation list of about 50 items. Each of these items represents a sales peron within my organization. Every month I select each of these items or sales people from the validation list (using the drop down box), which changes the commission data for each rep on the tab, then convert this to pdf to create and send each of these reps a commission statement.

Automatically Run Macro From Validation List

Aug 4, 2006

I want to do now is link the code below to a drop-down menu I have created on one of the sheets in the workbook. I created this list using data validation and declared this drop-down menu as MIndex and the values to choice from are 0,1,2.

Does anyone know how I can link this drop-down menu to the macro. So basically once the drop-down menu is activated run this macro.

Sub SumMonthlyVol()
Dim wSheet As Worksheet
For Each wSheet In Worksheets
Select Case UCase(Left(wSheet. Name, 2))
Case "AJ", "CJ", "PJ"

If (MIndex = 0) Then
wSheet.Range("L52") = "= SUM(R33C4:R50C12)"
Else
If (MIndex = 1) Then
wSheet.Range("L52") = "=SUM(R34C4:R50C12)" ......................

Autocomplete With Validation List Macro

Mar 24, 2008

I have seen this problem mentioned on other threads, but, didn't see the resolution. I got the below code from contextures.com's sample spreadsheet DataValComboBoxSheet.xls. When I press the tab or enter key, Excel crashes. This macro does exactly what I need which is to allow the user to autocomplete from a long list of validation values that come from another spreadsheet. The code causing the crash is the Select Case KeyCode statement when the keycode is 9 or 13. I am running Excel 2002.

Option Explicit

Private Sub TempCombo_KeyDown(ByVal _
KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, _
ByVal Shift As Integer)
'Hide combo box and move to next cell on Enter and Tab
Select Case KeyCode
Case 9
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate

Validation Of Copy / Paste Data By Macro

Sep 26, 2013

Template is created where the users copy/paste the data from other file. Data validation has been performed with the following steps:

1. Macro inserts the vlookup formula into column A, which isused for validating data that is entered by user from column B to E.
2. If the data is incorrect the N/A will be displayed in column A and invalid data will behighlighted in red color in column B.
3. This validation goes through the loop and after the loop is finished the pop message will be displayed and macro should stop so the user can correct the data.
4. After the user correct the data, the macro needs to run again to make sure there is no further errors. If there are no errors, thehighlighted cells should be cleared out of color and pop.

Here is the code that runs by command button:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Call FindNA
End Sub
Sub FindNA()
Dim ResultRange As Range
Dim ResultCell As Range
Dim iRow As Integer

[Code] ......

Macro For Selective Data Validation - Which Does Not Work

Jan 17, 2013

lately I have promised to program a little macro which looked easy for me to do but on which I have now spend a considerable amount of time without finding the problem why it is not running. I am working under Windows XP with Excel 2010, here is what i was trying to do:

In a worksheet there are two columns G and H. In both columns it shall be possible to select a number of possible entries from a list. For column G this is done via data validation, no problem. Now, the choices which are there in column H shall depend on the entries made in the appropriate row of column G. Column G thus functions as an overarching category. If I choose "Tree" in G, H would give me branches, leaves, apples. If I choose "car" the choices would be wheel, engine, gasoline etc. This shall be done by a Macro:

Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim cat1 As Range
Dim cat2 As Range
Dim x As Integer
Set cat1 = Range("G:G") 'Task Group
Set cat2 = Range("H:H") 'Task Category

[code].....

When running, it gives me Run time error 1004: Method "Range" of object '_Worksheet' failed. Debug highlights the row

Code:

With Range(Cells(ActiveCell.Row, 8))

Run Macro Based On Validation List Choice

Sep 3, 2007

I'm looking for a method, vba macro or Excel code, to preform the following task:
In the C column the user chooses one of several options from a menu, let's call these options 1 - 10 (this part is already done). Depending on the choise, different things are supposed to happen:

For 1-9, the formulas for cell A - Q on the current row should be copied to the next row (but with +1 in row number in formulas of course).

For 10, 3 blank rows should be created (well they already are blank..), on the forth row down, A3 - Q3 should be copied exactly. On the fifth row, the same formulas thing that was created for choise 1-9 should be created.

Since the real xls-file is too big already and it contains some sensitive information, I can't attach it here, but I made a small and similar xls-file, that better explain what I want to do.

Macro Copying Row To Next Blank Row On Another Sheet With Data Validation?

Mar 19, 2013

I am currently working in an excel file for which i want to create a macro. I am using colomn F as the base from which it should be determined whether a row should be copied. In colomn F the user can select three options through data validation. If 'completed' is selected, the whole row should be copied to the second sheet, and each copied row should be pasted to the next empty row. The data on the source sheet starts at row 11 and should be copied to sheet 2, starting from row 11 as well.

Macro To Check Validation Dropdowns Left Blank

Oct 27, 2008

Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.

Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).

What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:

a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list
b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet
c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice)
d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.

Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation List Crashes VBA Macro

Feb 28, 2012

I have a VBA macro for Excel 2007 below that loops through a workbook and deletes a picture (shape) in a range at the top of each worksheet.

The macro works fine until a cell which contains a seemingly unrelated data validation list on Sheets(1) is changed. The macro then repeatedly trips up with a 'Run-time error 1004 - Application defined or object defined error'.

The cell with the data validation is outside of the range in which the shapes are deleted and does not set any of the variables in the macro.

Sub DeleteLogos()
Dim Count As Integer
Dim NumberOfWorksheets As Integer
Dim Logo As Shape
Dim LogoZone As Range
NumberOfWorksheets = Worksheets.Count
For Count = 1 To NumberOfWorksheets
With Sheets(Count)

Macro Exporting PDFs Based On Values In Validation List

My question is, is there a way to write the macro so it exports a pdf for every value within a dropdown list until it hits a null value instead of what I have below so i don't have to repeat everything for every value in the list?

Here is what i currently have.

Sub Export_MarketSpecific()

Mouse Scroll WITHIN A Data Validation List & Option Macro Assistance

Jan 7, 2010

I'm trying to do a few things actually. I am somewhat a newb at programming, although I do understand how C++ and the coding works within Excel. To me, it's like the English language...knowing all of the vocabulary and formatting it right is important. If I don't know the vocabulary, I don't know what options I have.

This tool is being used in the call center I work in. It is to help eliminate repititious information used to notate accounts. I have attached a picture of what the tool looks like so you can have a better idea of what I'm working with. Here are a list of things I'm trying to do which I have searched and not found answers to:

1. I am trying to use a middle mouse scroll to scroll through validation list. This list information is located on a different locked tab. Basically, I have a few rows where a drop down selection can be made and it would be easier to scroll rather than manually moving the slider within the validation list.

2. As you can see, this "tool" an employee and I have created has many buttons. What I would like to do is to be able to click a button on the right and have it "stack" text within a single cell. In other words, if I click the button once, the text may be entered into the "actions taken" cell. If I click another button, I can have the option (or maybe a little "+" next to the button) to add this button's information to the end of the information already entered within the "actions taken" box. I've tried recording and using the keyboard and selecting "end" and then having the text added, but it didn't work. I've seen "loop" VBA code, but I don't want something to repeat, I want it to stack in the cell when clicked manually.

I'm sure there is a way to make the tool much better using VBA code and not use Excel, but I don't have an extensive knowledge of Excel to do something like that. I'm a very fast learner and understand how the coding works, so if you have an idea which may help, and you understand what I'm trying to do here, please provide your .02.

Basically, it's used so the Customer's name and phone number are entered manually, and then just about everything else is automated by the use of the buttons on the right. If I could get the 2 above options to work, it'd be perfect. I just figured out I could eliminate screen flicker and hide the macros working by using:

VBA Macro To Create Multiple Data Validation Lists From Variables & Named Ranges

Nov 10, 2008

I cant seem to find the correct syntax for creating 14 validation lists using array members as the source of the named ranged. The validation lists are stored on a different worksheet, the Named Ranges are created fine, as are the ranges that are having the validation applied. The Syntax I am having a problem with is

Public Sub assignDVList(WSD As Worksheet, sListName As String)
Dim DVListName As String
DVListName = "DV" & sListName
Application.Goto Reference:=sListName
With Selection.Validation
.Delete
.Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
xlBetween, Formula1:="=" & DVListName

It is the Formula1:="=" & DVListName that is creating the headache. The sub is called as the array moves through the columns, using the header row as the Name for the Named Range, and the data Validation worksheet uses the same naming except it has DV in front.

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?

Aug 19, 2009

I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.

Validation List To Depend On Another Validation List

Sep 9, 2006

I'm not sure if its possible to do what I want. I'm trying to do it without VBA as my users might have a high macro security setting.

I have a validation dropdown in A2 where they pick 'yes' or 'no' for FLSA. I would like B2 to be a dropdown (validation, listbox, whatever) that would change based upon A2. If A2 is 'yes' I want to use the data in A5:B7 and if its 'no' use A10:B12. Ultimately I want B2 to equal one of the numbers from A5 - A7 or A10 - A12. However when they click on the drop down they see the combo of column A and columb B as column A has no meaning for the user.

Copy Validation To Row Above?

Mar 3, 2013

I'm trying to set up a spreadsheet for users to update with details of customer service problems. A few of the columns have data validation against them (the master lists are on another worksheet) but I want to be able to copy the validation to a new row when created.

I've found this macro which seems to do the trick in terms of creating a row and copying the validation - but there's a couple of things that I'd like to amend...

VB:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim LR As Integer
If Target.Column > 1 Then Exit Sub

[Code].....

Firstly, I want to be able to create a new row above what was entered previously. The macro works fine as it is, but as the spreadsheet grows and grows, I don't want users to have to scroll down to the bottom of masses of information. I'd rather have it so that every time a user double clicks in cell A2, the data shifts down but the validation that was in row 2 remains in row 2.

Also, at present in the macro above the value in column A for the new row is 1 greater than the row previous. I'd like that to still happen even when the new row is going above the previous data. Trying to prevent duplicates is another reason why I'd like the macro to only run if cell A2 is double-clicked.

Date Validation With VBA

Apr 17, 2013

I inherited a spreadsheet and the date validation does not work. It checks for the formatting of the date being entered, and when anything is entered is returns the pop-up error message. so even when a correctly formatted date is typed into the cell the error message prevents the user from entering the new date. I have checked and cannot find the problem. I even tried formatting the cell with Crtl-1 to ensure the date being entered was formatted right, but still does not work.

This is the code snippet for three columns I am working with:

VB:

columns("G:G").Select
With Selection.Validation
.Delete
.add Type:=xlValidateCustom, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
xlBetween, Formula1:="format(""m/dd/yyyy"")"
.IgnoreBlank = True

Validation And Linking

May 27, 2008

I've attached a basic excel file with an example of the problem I need to solve. As you can see, if you select "No" to "Do they have a pet?" then conditional formatting blocks out the next field. The problem with that is, it still allows you to enter a value into the "Type" field which is skewing my results. Is there a way to allow a value in "Type" ONLY if there is "Yes" in "Do they have a pet?". I would also like it to delete the value in "Type" if I later select "No" instead of just covering it up. Is this possible? I'd like to avoid the scripting route if at all possible but I'm not sure it is...

Also, I have two linked spreadsheets, one pulls the totals off the other. However, If I add rows into the original it does not update the total formulas in the second sheet. Is there a way to make it do this automatically?
