When Selecting A Cell I Want A Message To Display The Value Of Another Cell

Mar 31, 2009

What I want to do is very similar to a Data Validation message, where a message pops up when you select a the cell. I want that message to be the value of another cell in the same worksheet.

I would also be open to a solution where you simply mouse over a cell to see a comment/message.

Display Different Message Box Based On Cell Value?

Jun 24, 2014

I have a workbook that can open a URL into IE when a project number is entered in an input box.

What I would like to happen is that if the project number entered does not have a URL against it and the value is #N/A, then the message box will display "Project does not exist". However if the number does exist, I want a different message box to be displayed which is a yes/no box.

The code below is what I have tried which works fine if the cell value is #N/A but when it is not it throws an Run-Time error 13: Type mismatch

Code:
Sub SearchPidsMessageBox()
Dim Answer As String
Dim MyNote As String

[Code]....

Selecting Only Alpha Characters From Cell 1 And Merge Another Cell?

Sep 28, 2013

I have an index of 80,000 names from an index. Some names appear in multiple volumes and on multiple pages within a volume. While the name is the same, they are different people. The Roman numeral is the volume and the numeric is the page number.

Example of original data: Joe Shmoe V-225, 310 VIII-22, 86, 110

I have separated the data into separate columns. Now I have:

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Col 6
Joe Shmoe V-225 310 VIII-22 86 110

At this point, I want to combine the Roman numeral in Col 2 with Col 3 and 4 and combine the Roman numeral in Col 4 with Col 5 and 6.

There are way too many records for me to manually enter the Roman numeral where missing.

Selecting Cell A2 Will Highlight/change Font In Cell A1

Jun 18, 2006

How can I change the font color or highlight cell A1, when I select cell A2. Cell A2 is still blank, no value entered yet. I also would like cell A1 to return to original font color or no hightlight when cell A2 is no longer selected (active), whether a value is entered or not in cell A2. Let me clearify, (A1 thru N1) and (A3 thru N3) have diferent dates and the font color is white, as is the cell too. Therefor you can not see the dates in (A1 thru N1) or (A3 thru N3).

However, when any cell (A2 thru N2) or (A4 thru N4) is selected (example A4), the cell above it (cell A3) changes font color or highlights, so the date can be seen in (A3). But when cell (A4) is no longer selected the above cell (A3) hides the date (changes back to white font on white cell). Data or a value is not necessarily entered into (A4) for (A3) to change. (A4) is only selected to show the date in (A3). But if data or value is entered into (A4), the date in (A3) will still be seen until (A4) is no longer selected/active.

Look At Data From One Cell Reference Another Cell Then Display The Results From The Cell Next To It

Jun 19, 2008

I have 2 problems relating to LOOKUP.
Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.

Problem 1
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:

Tab 1 (Never changes)
AB
Bob1
Jon2
Fred3

Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)
AB
Jon
Fred
Bob

So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column As data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column Bs result.

Problem 2

Weekly league rank table that shows position movements week by week
Example.

Week1
1Jon
2Bob
3Fred

Week2
1FredUp 2
2BobNot Moved
3JonDown 2

Can Excel calculate/show the actual movements of league positions?

Message Box Sort Before Display

Feb 17, 2008

I want to sort the information that will be displayed in a message box just before it's displayed, is this possible. I can't do this in the worksheet because it would conflict with how I have the worksheet sorted already. Here's the last portion of the code that will display what I want in the message box. I want to sort by the... Requested on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 2).Text & " this column has a date and time in it and I want the sort to use this information to sort the message box.

If .Cells(i, "A").Value = mpTestName Then

mpMessage = mpMessage & mpNames.Cells(i, 1).Value & _
" (Requested on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 2).Text & ", Leave type: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 3).Value & _
", Start Date on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 4).Text & ", End Date on: " & mpNames.Cells(i, 5).Text & ")" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine

End If
Next i

If mpMessage "" Then

MsgBox mpMessage, vbOKOnly + vbInformation
Else

MsgBox "Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah", vbOKOnly + vbInformation
End If
End With

Message Box Display With Options

Dec 18, 2008

When the user enters a date (A1), that date is cross-referenced with a database to determine 1 of 3 results, in which the results are displayed in A3 as follows - Date out of range. (value="DOR"), No records exist. (Value="NRE"), Records exist. (Value="RE").

Once the date is entered and the corresponding value determined, I would like to have a ppo-up message appear with options:

Date out of Range.
Message: "Date falls out of range of operating season. Please re-enter." ** I think I can use validation to take care of this. **

Message "Would you like to import data?"
Yes - open external application
No - default A1 to current date and await user input

Records Exist.
Message " x Diamond Records; y Field Records; z Court Records " where x y z are numeric values based on lookup from the referenced database
Message "Proceed to data"
Yes - takes used to next new worksheep
No - default A1 to current date and await user input

How / where do I code this to activate after the user enters a valid date?

Display Message Box With An Input Box

Mar 30, 2009

I am looking for is VB code to firstly have a message box with an input box on (that bit i can do). The text and number put into the message box is then used to search the table for the information that relates to it.

The ideal would be for the code to find the data and then copy it either to the clipboard or to a section of the workbook.

The tables I am searching can be put into which ever format is easiest. Below is an example table;

A B C D E
1 A.1 Side Road Correctly Left

2 A.2 Hit in Rear Left

3 A.3 No known Police ref

4 A.4 Vandalism

Using A Form To Display A Message Box

Jan 12, 2010

I have been using the GetOpenFileName method and a message box to return the filepath of a file and saving the filepath in a variable called Filepath. This worked just fine.

What I want to be able to do is display the the file path at any time in a message box, but not sure how to do this. I tried displaying the message box in a form and was going to look for some way to call the form, but the form does not return the message.

My code for this is as follows:

Module 1
Sub getfilepath()
Dim filepath As String
filepath = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*", Title:="Select a file")
UserForm1.Show
End Sub

Userform 1
Private Sub OkButton_Click()
Unload UserForm1
End Sub...........

Cell Referenceing (display The Value In The Cell Offset By X So I Can Bring The Numbers From Sheet1 Over)

Jul 17, 2009

Sheet1 is a list of names, then a few columns of numbers.
Sheet2 contains calculations based of the numbers in sheet1.

Each sheet from 2 on is names after the names in sheet1 column A...
A large cell at the top of each sheet contains the formula to display the sheet name:
=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,255)

So what I want to do now is...
in cell, look for the cell in sheet1, and display the value in the cell offset by X so i can bring the numbers from sheet1 over.

In plain english the cell would say like...
"look in sheet1 for "Name" then display the cell next to it"

I know to look in the next sheet its "=Base!B2" if i wanted b2 on sheet base.
I know to use "=OFFSET(Base!B2, , 1, , )" too look at B2 and go right 1 column.
But the issue is i dont want Base!B2.. i want whatever cell in Base column A that has the text that A1 has.

Increase That Amount By A Percentage Identified In Another Cell And Display The Value Only Without Any Formalas In A New Cell

Jan 19, 2009

If a cell is not blank, then increase that amount by a percentage identified in another cell and display the value only without any formalas in a new cell. To this end I wrote this IF statement:

=IF(I2>0,CP9=(CA9*I2/100)+CA9,CP9="")

Observation: I see a FALSE in CS9 where this IF statement exists, however, CP9 does not display the required value.

Excel 2010 :: Display Cell Ranges From Multiple Locations Based On 2 Cell Values?

Jun 4, 2013

I need to display a set of cells based on the value of two drop down cells i have. As I am not very good at english and worse at explinations, I'll try via screen shots...

I have two dropdowns (C4 and C6) that will indicate what table to use (Second sheet / screenshot). I want that "table" to display in the yellow box on the first page. To complicate matters, some options do not have a CLA option - those starting with X. As there are 24 different outcomes and each is 3x9 if/then statements just dont seem to cut it.

P.S. I have excel 2010 and windows 7
