# What Is Difference Between Userform_activate And Userform_Initialize

Dec 11, 2008I need to understand the difference between userform_activate and userform_Initialize.

When do I use one or the other or both.

I need to understand the difference between userform_activate and userform_Initialize.

When do I use one or the other or both.

My question is about the difference between UserForm_Initialize and UserForm_Activate. I don't understand what sets them apart. Or why they are used. The reason I ask is, I have made 5 ComboBoxes. Array values are assigned to each combo box.

However, which particular array values are assigned to ComboBox2 are dependent on what the user chooses in ComboBox1. And which array values are assigned to ComboBox3 are dependent on what the user chooses in ComboBox2, and so on and so forth, all the way up to ComboBox5.

My understanding is that all ComboBox values are assigned/populated in the UserForm_Activate procedure. Is this correct? If so, am I right to believe the best/only approach to creating the ComboBoxes I described is by calling the UserForm_Activate procedure everytime a ComboBox value is chosen by the user?

I am adding a UserForm to speed data entry for our test engineers. This has 3 pairs of TextBox & SpinButtons for selection of product & test plus the test result. Also an Exit button & 2 labels.

_Initialise & _Activate is supposed to set the text for the TextBoxes plus values for the SpinButtons, default or otherwise.

Neither will run. Have tried location the procedures under Forms & the applicale Sheet, but no avail.

Have now stripped out all the code apart from Message Boxes & some text to try & debug.

What is preventing the routines from running?

It is not Initializing.

Sub test()

UserForm1.Show

End Sub

Private Sub UserForm1_Initialize()

UserForm1.TextBox1.Value = 8

End Sub

I have created a form containing a list box. This list box contains values (Items) that correspond to a particular product (i.e. each time I view a new product, I need to see a new list of items in the list box). I have used Userform_initialize to set the Items (see below). The values are themselves drawn from a spreadsheet. I have only pasted the piece of code in question - I have a lot more code prior to that in order to define the variable "varcount".

Userform_initialize

Dim w As Workbook

Dim varLine As Integer

Dim varcount As Integer

Dim vItem As String

Set w = ThisWorkbook

For counter = 1 To varcount

Selection. Offset(0, 0).Select

vItem = Selection.Value

frmCheckTwinSku.lbTwinSku.AddItem (vItem)

Selection.Offset(0, 1).Select

Next counter.........................

The below code tests a particular cell before displaying the userform. If Range ("Bal_BF") contains an error (such as "#N/a"), a message box is displayed and the form should NOT display.

However, the code is still trying to display the userform, and gives me a error message "Object variable or With Block variable not set".

When Bal_BF contains a value, the form displays correctly.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

If Employee = "" Then Call Retrieve

If IsError(Range("Bal_BF")) Then

Call MsgBox("Your name doesn't appear in the Holiday & Absence file." & vbCr & vbCr & _

"Please see Leila Fretton or Neil Jimack about this.",.........

I have a userform used to insert new vehicle details onto a spreadsheet. below is the code used in two of the boxes to choose the service intervals and the engine type. There is another combobox on the form, however when I try the same type of code for more than 1 box I receive an error on the "Sub Userform_Initialize" line. I assume I need to change something on the 'Sub' line but I cannot figure out what!!

I'm currently doing some research for the World Cup (Soccer) and I want to create a formula that finds the largest gap between two dates. Basically, I'm copy and pasting player data into an Excel template I've created and one of the columns in each player's data is a list of dates when he has played over the last 12 months. I want to create a formula that shows me the length (in days) of his longest break from playing competitive football AFTER Oct 1st 2013.

A report is due every six months. There may be times when more than one report got missed.

Right now, I have the Y6 recognizing that a report is late... period.

=IF(V6>(TODAY()),0,1)

So, what I need is:

If the Time Difference between V6 and T6 is greater than 6 months, divide the difference by 6 mos and return the answer to cell Y6 (rounded down with no decimals).

Could someone explain to me what the difference is between these the two examples given in this worksheet?

I have a client who weants to work out the total number of hours (not minutes) between two times. I have managed to do that with no problem using the formula =IF(A2>B2,B2-A2+1,A2+B2). However, this is where the problem starts.

They want to multiply the number of hours with the number of men on the job, but the answer is wrong, and I cannot understand why. I have checked the formnat of the cell and changed it to see if that is the problem, but without success.

I have copied it below

I have a spreadsheet that records a bunch of golfer's scores for a round of golf.

I have a range G10:X10 that shows Par for each of the 18 holes.

I have many rows below that, G11:X11 is one example, that are individual golfer's scores.

I'd like to add a column, say in column AC, that would count the number of birdies each golfer had in the round.

Thus, I was thinking something like this in AC11:

=SUMIF(G11:X11 - G10:X10,"=-1").

Of course that doesn't work. I need some way of creating a range of 18 differences for the first parameter of the SUMIF function. I know that I can write a VBA macro for it or add another row for each golfer with the difference (but that would double the size of the spreadsheet). Is there an elegant way to do this with a worksheet function given just the scores and par for all 18 holes.

I'm trying to calculate the number of hours an agent works between the hours of 7AM and 7PM. Column B has their START time, Column C has their END time, Column D includes their LUNCH time, and Column E calculates the total number of hours worked (=IFERROR(SUM(C248-B248)-D248,"-").

I've created 3 additional columns (Column F = number of hours before 7:00, Column G = number of hours after 19:00, and Column H = Total excluded hours which represents the total number of hours an agent worked before 7AM or after 7PM.

I've attemped several different formulas, but they all give me '#########' in one cell or another.

Other formulas used:

=$F$243-B248

=ABS(F243-B249)

=-IF(B250>$F$243,-1,1)*MINUTE(IF(B250>$F$243,B250-$F$243,$F$243-B250))

My format is 13:30:55

I'd like for the result to be either a dash "-" or "0:00:00" if an agent's start time is after 7AM or end time is before 7PM.

I have two funtions which I am trying to put in ThisWorkbook.

Private Sub Workbook_Open and Private Sub 2. The Workbook_Open calls on Sub 2.

Now, with both of these in ThisWorkbook, I get the error that Sub 2 macro cannot be found.

And if I put the Sub 2 in a module, everything works.

Now, I am trying to put both in ThisWorkbook instead of only one.

I have a form for weather warnings that has time of issue in cell B19, and the time of occurrence in cell D19, and the times are in a 24hr military style time format (1600, or 1735, etc).

I need cell G19 to tell me the time difference between the two in hours and minutes, but here's the catch - if cell B19 has an earlier time, I need it to display the difference as a positive number, indicating that I issued the warning before the event actually occurred. If D19 is earlier, I need it to display in cell G19 as a negative number, indicating that the event occurred before I had a chance to issue the warning.

I want to take two dates, a start date and an end date and get the number of days elapsed.

I also want to enter the dates quickly, as in 070808 for 07/08/08 (not having to enter the dashes). I have tried 00/00/00 and ##"/"##"/"## in the cells format, number, custom.

Using that format, entering 070808 in A1, and 070809 for A2 and finally in A3 =DATEDIF(A4,B4,"d") to get the difference in days. What I get is 1 day instead of 365 days.

So it's thinking 70809 - 70808 = 1.

How do I get it to give me 365 days? What format can I use in the date cells?

In the below table, I was trying to get the difference in ColB corresponding to Names in ColA..

XYZ 16 3 MNO 11 1 MNO 10 1 MNO 9 -1 MNO 10

?

I have the following dates in column A

22.01.09

30.01.09

And I have the following in column B

Closed 28.01.09

I need to calculate the difference of days between column A and column B.

Is there a formula that I could use?

I know by looking what math to apply to that particular cell. Is there a way to do a formula to get the results no matter if they are plus or minus. without having to change the formula back and for on if i know it'll be increasing or decreasing?

I need to calculate the received when..

search by client name using "*"&Cell reference&"*" then match the expiration date then transaction type. if all conditions are true, then calculate the difference between i.e. Subtract expiration date - recieived date..

Assuming the first date is in A1, and the second date is in B1, in standard dd/mm/yyyy form, my current formula is =B1-A1-1.The '-1' is due to the fact that if a patient stays for 10 days, they will only spend 9 nights in the hospital. (Bed Nights).The problem is, the formula is stretched in the total column from, say C1 to C50. Each one of these has, or will have, a number of days in it.However, due to having th '-1' in the formula, empty rows that are yet to have a patients details inputted have a -1 where I need a 0. The only reason I need to change this is because I need a running total of the bed nights of all the patients.I think the formula I'm after is something along the lines of; 'If cell B2 is empty, input 0. If B2 has a date, use formula 'B2-A2'

1/7/13 X

I tried this:

in column c, use "datedif" function then calculate median from column C values.

problem: if left blank, value in row 4 comes up as #NUM!. if text is entered, value comes up as #VALUE!

I also tried this array: =median(abs(B5:B1-A5:A1))

Should i be trying the medianif function?
