Viewing And Printing Selected Worksheets - VBA

Sep 3, 2009

I have a workbook containing a number of spreadsheets. Some of the spreadsheets are user inputs. The results of the user inputs drive a number of final reports. The final reports (i.e. spreadsheets) are hidden from the user (I don't want the user to be overwhelmed with so many tabs when they open the excel spreadsheet).

I created on the main input tab spreadsheet the following:

1. Check boxes - so that user can select after making his/her inputs the reports that he/she wants to view or print.

Say there are 4 reports (call them Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4 - therefore, 4 check boxes. Through the Format Control, the checkboxes have cell links that yield TRUE (if selected) or FALSE if not selected - linked to cells A1, A2, A3, A4 respectively.

2. Option buttons - one for view and another one for print. Through the Format Control, the View and Print option buttons have cell links to cell A5 yielding 1 for View and 2 for Print.

3. Command button - that will clear the check boxes

I would like to know if there is a way to code in VBA to:

1. Unhide the spreadsheets corresponding to the check boxes if selected;

2. Print the spreadsheets corresponding to the check boxes if selected for printing; and

3. Clear the checked boxes to unchecked if the Command button is clicked.

I'm struggling with coding to perform the above tasks.

TODAY() Function And Viewing Or Printing Original Date

Mar 29, 2009

I have a seemingly simple dilemna and wonder if there is a solution... I am not a PRO user, but can get by with my limited knowledge of excel.

My issue:

I create invoices for my business and in the invoice I use the "TODAY()" function to automatically insert the current day when I created the invoice.

Now when I need to go back and look at the old invoice or print it again it shows the CURRENT date, not the original date when it was saved. Is there a way to view and/or print out a file while keeping the original date intact or is there a better way to format a date to avoid this happening in the future.

I have since eliminated the function and just type in the date to avoid this but I have about 100 invoices that are saved that I may need to view their "original" dates on.

Here is what I try to achieve:

Printing Worksheets From A Listbox Selection?

Jul 28, 2014

What I'm trying to do is print only the selected worksheets from a listbox. I have created a UserForm and a ListBox which displays all unhidden worksheets in a workbook. The ListBox MultiSelect control is set to 1-fmMultiSelectMulti. I would like to be able to click CommandButton1 and send the selected worksheets to print, but going to Print Preview first. This is what I have so far:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
'Displays only visible (non-hidden) worksheets in listbox2
Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets


how I can modify this code to print just the selected worksheets?

Worksheets Individually Numbered When Printing

Aug 6, 2013

i have a program that exports multiple invoices to an excel template for ease of formatting and printing. it can export multiple invoices at once, each invoice being on a separate worksheet. i need for the user to be able to print all worksheets at once and have the pages NOT be numbered 1-30, rather 1-2, 1-4, 1-3, etc.

i understand i can use the header to insert page numbers, but they only function the way i would like when you print each worksheet one at a time. however, there could be any number of invoices to print at once. the only drawback is i am unable to use macros due to security risks/settings.

i would imagine there is some concoction of formulas i could possibly use to accomplish what i need, as i know how many rows of data will fit before excel inserts a page break(56 rows of invoice items, and there are 18 rows besides that repeat on every page). so if i could come up with a way to tell excel when to increment the page number in a cell using a formula of some kind, that would be perfect. or, another way of setting up my template so that it will print page numbers as expected.

Printing Certain Rows In A Range From Several Worksheets

Jan 10, 2010

I have a workbook containing several sheets. New worksheets may be added. From each sheet, I would like to print the first row in range (AB1:AE200) along with any rows below the first that contains the value “Red” in column AB. From what I have been reading, it would seem that a temporary worksheet would be the answer using a copy/paste.

As each sheet would likely contain only three or four rows to then print, is there a way then to get all the data onto a single page, thereby preventing the need to print a single page for each sheet?

Excel 2010 :: Printing Multiple Worksheets And Changing Printer Defaults

Jul 29, 2011

We have just refreshed our entire printer fleet to Xerox printers and as part of the project we have selected all defaults to B&W and duplex.

On a multi sheet excel file, If we click print then choose entire workbook and then change the print options to colour, it prints the only first worksheet in colour, and all the others in mono. i have read that excel treats each worksheet separately and does not cascade the changes made made in the first worksheet even if all sheets have been selected.

How can I get them all to print in colour?

We can set up another printer and change the defauts to colour but we dont want to go down that road and have 2 printers installed for each model.

Is there any code out there can will/ can change the properties of the first worksheet and cascade this throughout the workbook.

We use XP and W7 workstations and office 2003, 2007 and 2010. By the end of the year all workstations will be W7 and Office 2010.

Extracting Selected Data Into New Worksheets

Jul 15, 2009

I have a workbook, see attached example, which has multiple columns. I want to extract the data for a certain criteria, in this example column E "product".

I then want to take all of the data in columns A to L for the chosen criteria e.g. product 1696 and place it in a new worksheet. I want to do this for every unique product. The example I have given only shows 2 products and limited rows, in reality I could have 50-60 products with hundreds of rows per product.

Keeping Only Selected Rows Over Multiple Worksheets

Nov 29, 2013

I have an excel file with over 20 worksheets and each of them have around 1200 rows. The first column in each worksheet contains the variable names and then the data associated to it is present horizontally.

I only want to keep around 80 rows from those 1200 rows. They are not in sequence (means they are not in continuous order) so I manually selected those rows by deleting the non required rows step by step.

I did it manually on 2 worksheets but I don't want to do that manually over 20 worksheets. Is there any method that can speedup the whole process.

I am attaching the snapshots of the worksheets..

This one is before I deleted the unwanted rows.

This one is after the deletion of unwanted rows.

Saving Multiple Selected Worksheets From Listbox As PDF

Jun 25, 2014

To this point I have been able to successfully write code that will save a constant set of worksheets as a pdf. However, I would now like to alter it to be able to dynamically select the desired worksheets from a list box (I have been able to populate my list box) and then save as a pdf. The last step is where I am have issues. This is what I have thus far..

Dim relativePath As String
Dim Selected As Long

For Selected = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
If ListBox1.Selected(Selected) = True Then
Sheets("Summary").Range("Q65536").End(xlUp)(2, 1) = ListBox1.List(Selected)
ListBox1.Selected(Selected) = False

Convert Selected Range On All Worksheets To Values

Aug 9, 2007

I have a macro that changes user selection from formulas to values:

Dim vCol As Variant

vCol = Application.InputBox("Select Column", Type:=2)
If vCol = False Or vCol = "" Then Exit Sub
Set UserRange = Range(vCol & "9:" & vCol & "35")
UserRange.Value = UserRange.Value

End Sub

I have several workbooks that use this macro, and the workbooks can include several sheets.

Is there's an easy way to change the macro so the user selection is changed in all sheets in the workbook. E.g. if the user selection is column H, the formula is changed to values in all sheets in the workbook.

Copy Selected Worksheets As Values To New Workbook

Jun 22, 2008

I have a workbook with 30 some sheets. I would like to have a macro that if i select multiple sheets, will paste the values and formats of those sheets into a new workbook. I would like this to keep the names of the worksheets when transfered to the new workbook.

Thus far, I have been using this code, which does nearly everything i want, but instead of pasting the values, it gives me #VALUE! for nearly all the cells. Most of the cells are using Vlookup and/or Indirect functions to reference other sheets- not sure if this is relevant. The few cells that do paste accurately are either text or simply reference another cell on a different worksheet without a function.

Here's my code.

Sub PasteShtVal()
Dim w As Worksheet
For Each w In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
With w.UsedRange
.Value = .Value
End With
Next w
End Sub

Loop Through Selected Worksheets And Hide Empty Rows On Each?

Jun 22, 2014

I have a workbook with over 70 tabs whose position shouldn't be changed. Some of these tabs are colored in yellow (sorting by tab color is not allowed). I need to select these yellow tabs first and loop through them (only yellow tabs) and hide empty rows in the range of A1: G 50 on each of them. Grouping sheets wwon't work because each tab has different last row with data within that range.

Printing Multiple Workbooks With Printing Preference As Landscape

Jan 15, 2012

I would like to know if there is a way to print several different workbooks at once but keeping my printing format which I would like to be Landscape and Fit to one page. Reason is simple as I work in a office where staff is handed in several jobs to do everyday. They finish the jobs and log all the info on the database. I log on to database and put all their daily diaries and because it is all over the place I have to go in each file and set printing preferences which takes an hour in the morning and hour in the evening. I could do with some sort of automation where all diaries are automatically printed in Landscape and Fit on one page.

Printing / Not Printing Ranges Based On Cell Contents

Apr 11, 2008

I have a report that is generated from a manufacturing process that looks like the example below. the report is 40 pages long when all the data is printed. i am looking for a way to only print this range if a dimension is "out of tolerance". if the dimension is within tolerance, there is always the "garbage" text of plus and minus. if every row is "within tolerance" in the range the cells in the OutTol column would all contain the "garbage" text but it will not always be identical. so, in summary, actual OutTol values = print and all "garbage" = not printed.
