Vba: Msgbox When Value In Cell Is Value Or N/a

I have a formulae in cell C1 (looks up A1, B1). I want to have a msgbox come up when the value in cell C1 is either #VALUE! / #N/A / any other error. So: if error.type in (1 - 7), want error box. Else if error.type = #N/A, no error box!

Msgbox To Appear When Cell B5 Changes
In one of my spreadsheets users can see the active period on multiple worksheets
All have cell references to the 1st worksheet (cell B5). I would like 2 things:

1. If users change one of the reference cells on the other worksheets I would like a msgbox to appear

2. After clicking the msgbox away I would like the "old" cell contents (the referenece) to be restored.

Macro For Cell Deletion Relative To Msgbox
Im looking for code for a button that asks for a Record number, and it will delete the record. But the record number is written in cells as 'Record No.1' 'Record No.2' etc. But i want the messagebox to ask for a single number and it would delete that record. Now the position of the records is what will be the difficult bit about this code, but it has a pattern.

For Record No.1 i need deleting cells C2:J100
For Record No.2 i need deleting cells L2:S100
For Record No.3 i need deleting cells U2:AB100

If anyone could give me a bit of code that works for these 3 then i could waste a load of time filling the rest of them out.

MsgBox If Condition Not Met
Hi, Please could someone help with the following code. I have 2 sheets 'sheet 1' and 'sheet 2'(hidden). Sheet 1 has a control button that takes you straight to sheet 2, however what I wish to achieve is that before sheet 2 is visible a message box appears if a condition is not met. Something like, if sheet 1 R29 is less than 5000 then msg box appears (I would need about 4 lines in the msg box), if ok'd then sheet 2 appears. If the condition is met i.e sheet 1 R29 = or is greater than 5000 then the msg box does not appear and takes the user to sheet 2.

MsgBox With Warning
I have several material takeoff sheets and one material SummarySheet in my workbook.

Each material takeoff sheet has a subtotal cell at the bottom of the sheet. The subtotals are added together and the total sum is displayed in a cell on the SummarySheet. At least that is how it is supposed to work. Excel or somebody else arbitrarily changed the cell reference in the SummarySheet formula to call up the cell one row above the subtotal cell on the material takeoff sheets. This little action resulted in a loss of $674,000 and may eventually result in my unemployment. Meanwhile I am sitting here putting out fires.

This is what I would like to do: Place a formula on the SummarySheet or add a Macro that will trigger a warning message box if the total on the SummarySheet is not equal to the sum of the subtotals on the material takeoff sheets. Also would like to have the message box animated or brightly colored.

If(PlateCostsTotals+AppurtenancesCostsTotals+StructuralCostsTotals+MiscellaneousCostsTotalsSummaryCostsTotal MsgBox “Hey, Don’t You Know How to Add”) or an alternate formula that works.

Tick Box In MsgBox
I have this piece of code that shows a popup box when the excel spreadsheet loads up.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "This spreadsheet can design both single-leaf and cavity walls." _
& Chr(13) & Chr(13) & "If only a single-leaf wall is to be designed:" _
& Chr(13) & "Deselect the cavity wall option and complete only the outer leaf input sheet." _
& Chr(13) & Chr(13) & "If a cavity wall is to be designed:" _
& Chr(13) & "Select the cavity wall option and complete both input sheets." _
& Chr(13) & Chr(13) & "All designs satisfy criteria within BS:5628-1:1992 Structural Use Of Unreinforced Masonry", , _
"Spreadsheet Information"
End Sub

Is it possible to place a tick box in the message box that says, "show this message again on startup", then if the user unticks the box the message is not shown again and if the box is left ticked the box will load up again on startup of the workbook????

Center Message In Msgbox
How can I get the message to display in the center of the display box?

If i < 3 Then If MsgBox(Tries - i & " Tries Remaining." & vbLf & vbLf & " Try Again?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then Exit For

As you can see the "try again?" & the text "Tries Remaining"works fine by entering spaces, but the number that is suppose to display with "Tries Remaining" does NOT center. How can I get the number to display in the center along with the text?

This is the complete code.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

Dim PassTry As String
Const Pass As String = "Password"
Dim storedPath As String
On Error Resume Next
storedPath = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PathCertString").Value

Add Data To Range Using MsgBox

MsgBox To Pop-up To The User With 3 Options
I want a MsgBox to pop-up to the user with 3 Options.

Option A, Option B, Cancel.

If user presses Option A GOTO 1:
If user Pressed Option B GOTO 2:

And if Cancel End Sub, not sure if this is doable, please let me know. Basically I am writing this VBA to archive files from the network drive and there are two different kinds and depending on what Option the user chooses, the Destination variable needs to take on a different value, that's why I need this, unless there is a better way to do this.

Basically so far my code is like this:

Sub Archive_GTP()

Dim Nlog As Worksheet
Dim DestinationFile, SourceFile
Dim lr As Long
Dim c As Range

Set Nlog = Worksheets("Log")..........................

Trapping A Msgbox During Validation

Format Time In Msgbox
This stems from an earlier thread but I didn't want to raise a new question on a previous thread. So, Wigi had kindly shown me some code for seeing how long a macro takes to run. I've been trying to adjust the format so that when it's complete it shows as "This macro took 00:01.23 seconds to complete" Or,, if that's possible. Here's what was shown to me earlier:

Dim t
t = Timer
'-------rest of the code here-------
MsgBox "This macro took " & Round(Timer - t, 2) & " seconds to run."

I've been trying some variations like: MsgBox "This macro took " & Format(Timer - t, 2, "h:mm:ss.0") & " seconds to run."
