I have a spreadsheet with a table of values in range E5 to T158.
A macro populates the table by looking up values on other sheets in the book. If the macro finds a value in the lookup for Row 7 of any column (ie E7,F7...T7) it populates the rest of the column with that value (E7 value gets pasted to E8:E158) THEN it protects the cells it pasted (E8:E158).
If the macro does NOT find a value for row 7, it simply skips it, leaving it blank, and continues to row 8 until it reaches row 158 of each column E to T.
I want to give the user flexibility with these values. So if the user either deletes E7 or changes the value of the contents in E7, I want to unprotect the cells of rows 8 to 158 for that column.
I have created a
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
in the private module for that sheet below. I thought it was working but it isn't doing anything when I change or delete the value in Cell E7 for example. Please help!
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
'Do nothing if more than one cell is changed
If Target.Cells.count > 1 Then Exit Sub 'Or IsEmpty(Target)
I ran this code last week and it worked great, but today it doesn't work at all. I have even deleted it, closed Excel and and started fresh. Is there some small thing I'm missing (like hopping on my left foot while entering a code) ...
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) With Target.Cells(1, 1) If Not Intersect(.Cells, Range("b3:b6")) Is Nothing Then Range("b7") = "Not Found" For i = 3 To 6: txt = txt & Cells(i, "b").Value & "_": Next For Each r In Range("m3", Cells(3, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft)) For i = 0 To 3: txt2 = txt2 & r.Offset(i).Value & "_": Next If txt = txt2 Then Range("b7").Value = r.Offset(4).Value Exit For End If txt2 = "" Next ElseIf Not Intersect(.Cells, Range("b16:b19")) Is Nothing Then Range("b20") = "Not Found".....................
I'm working with this code right now. The problem is the macro will only work if i type the numbers manually. if the values are retrieved from a combobox, the code above down not work as it cannot read the values.
I've set up code where when a cell within a specified range of cells is selected, a macro will run. This works all well and good except for when a whole row, column or range containing the defined cells is selected, there is a run time error. There is no situation where I want multiple cells selected to run the macro, so I only want to run the macro when only a single cell within that range is selected.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange")) Is Nothing Then Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter" End If
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("GoToRange2")) Is Nothing Then Application.Run "'Macro Test Current MY PFEP Metrics.xls'!PFEP_Filter" End If End Sub
When I paste data in Sheet2 in the attached CF Example2 file (Just by Selecting A1:L18 Cutting it and Pasting in the same place), the action of the VBA code in the Thisworkbook is correct but I am getting the 1004 Error Message from the VBA debugger saying "Run-time Error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error
I have used the code for formatting: http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/excel-cond...ting-limit.htm. This works fine when typing in the numbers manualy but if I have a formula (eg:A1=b1+c1) and a1 = 15 nothing happens. Is there an update button or a better way to do this?
The code below will put "Some text" into column B when data is pasted into column D. This only works when copying data into one cell. If I copy into multiple cells of column D then the code does not run at all.
Is there a way to write a Worksheet_SelectionChange (ByVal Target As Range) event in module after creating a sheet in VBA? I constantly delete a sheet, then repopulate it with a new one that is empty, but I need to add some code that happens if they should change a particular cell. It worked when I ran it on a worksheet without refreshing, but as soon as I cleared and repopulated the sheet, it was gone. Is there a way to preserve this?
Bit of an odd one, but I'm sure it's probably happened before to others. I've just been sent a worksheet to redesign (an audit template) one which I'll be making use of data validation lists (Yes, No, N/A) a fair bit.
What I want to happen is that when the user selects from a list, I'll fire a Worksheet_Change event, which will then run some background calculations to set up the next questions, etc. Problem is, the event isn't firing at all. I'm using the following to test the event...
I wrote a simple script to show/hide certain rows based on the value of a certain cell on my worksheet (cell value chosen by drop down). When I left work last night, everything worked fine. When I returned this morning, the change event no longer appears to be firing. I'm quite certain no one else accessed the file to change the coding, so my only guesses are 1)perhaps some sort of system update was applied in the middle of the night and it messed with something or 2) aliens have blocked our technology in advance of their invasion.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) On Error Resume Next
If Target.Address = "F1" Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Select Case Target Case "150" Rows("13").EntireRow.Hidden = False Rows("14:19").EntireRow.Hidden = True Case "330" Rows("14").EntireRow.Hidden = False Rows("13").EntireRow.Hidden = True Rows("15:19").EntireRow.Hidden = True Case "340" Rows("15:19").EntireRow.Hidden = False Rows("13:14").EntireRow.Hidden = True Case Else Rows("13:19").EntireRow.Hidden = True End Select
i try with what limited knowledge i have, if you dont mind take a look at the code below, i read your article and added the appropriate line, the code works fine except the msgbox has to be ok'd twice before it exits sub any ideas why?
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng As Range Dim MyCell Set rng = Range("A2:A100") If Not Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then With rng For Each MyCell In rng If MyCell = "" Then MyCell.Select MsgBox "Please use this next blank cell" Exit Sub
button on main workbook opens 2 other workbooks and assigns a workbook object to them. the 2 opened workbooks are Activated in turn, range values changed and macros on these sheets invoked and results captured and pasted back onto the starter workbook. the macro is within a sub in a module as are the ones in the second workbook. An example of the code used is:
I'd like to know if there is a change event that only occurs when a target cell is changed by the user, but does not occur when i'ts changed by a macro. nfortunately, the Worksheet_Change event occurs in both cases.
In cell A1, I have the month number (eg, 1, 2, 3,). The month number reflects current month and will automatically change with every month. For example, right now itís 6, next month it will automatically change to 7. Each two columns in Range A10:X20 represents the data from January to December. I want to use a worksheet event to change the background of the current month two columns in the range to yellow color and the two columns in the range will be visible when I activate this sheet.
looking to only allow a check ("x") in a column for a reconcile - type worksheet. Am I close?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) 'Data protection. Only allow "x" in the "cleared" column. If anything else is entered, a message box informs the user 'and the cell contents are cleared. Dim val As Variant Dim msg As String If ActiveCell.Value "x" Then msg = "You can only enter an X in the cleared column." ActiveCell.ClearContents End If End Sub
I'm having some trouble getting control ENTER & EXIT events to fire properly when having controls embedded on frames within a userform. I'm using Excel 2003, 2007, & 2010. Here's the userforms I'm working with:
In both cases, the DESCRIPTION field is disabled. The selectable controls on both are a combo-box, textbox, listbox, & 2 buttons. On the FRAMED version, the combo-box & textbox are contained on a FRAME.
Here's the code, same on both userforms:
Code: Option Explicit Private Sub cmbRecipes_Enter() ListBox1.AddItem "ENTER - " & cmbRecipes.Value End Sub Private Sub cmbRecipes_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) ListBox1.AddItem "EXIT - " & cmbRecipes.Value End Sub
All this is doing is posting a message to the listbox when the combo-box ENTER & EXIT events fire. This works as expected without the FRAME, ENTER is shown when the combo-box is entered and EXIT is shown as focus is moved to another control. But when running it on the FRAMED version all I get is a single ENTER event recorded regardless of how I move the focus through the control set.
Another oddity is that if I have more than 1 control that can receive focus on the FRAMED version, it appears to work correctly.
trying to get a worksheet change event to work. Basically the code below calls the time_start procedure when cell J16 downwards is selected.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Row > 15 And Target.Column = 10 Then
Call time_start Else End If
However, I am lost from here on....Let me try and explain what it is I am trying to do. This seems so simple if you know how. Each time that the word "Completed" is entered in to a cell from J16 onwards, the cell two columns to the right on the same row is selected and the current date is entered.
If the word "Completed" is deleted, I want the date on that row to be deleted.
I would also like the choices "Completed" and a blank cell to be given in a validation list via a dropdown if possible to avoid occurances of "Complete" etc and mis-spellings but I understand that a bug may stop me from using this functionality. I am running Excel 2002 on a Windows XP Professional OS.
I have the below vba and would like to have the '''event calculated ''' on any event on the worksheet. Right now it only update if updating the val1 thru val6 cells. How can i get the worksheet to update on any event or change on the sheet?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) On Error Resume Next fr = Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Row Set Rng = Range("a2" & ":n" & fr) If Intersect(Target, Rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
I have looked at the threads concerning cell change events but cannot find a solution to my situation. I have a worksheet with a cell using a validation list. I wish to exicute a procedure whenever the dropdown list is changed in that one cell. Everything I have seen in the Worksheet event threads is evaluating the contents of a cell and I am attempting to exicute if the cell changes.
I'm trying to create a worksheet change event macro that will change the colour of the cell when you update the value in that cell.
I have column C with 140 rows and when one of the cells in the column is changed by the user, I need the same cell to highlight in yellow. The highlight would then be removed once the user has acted on the change in the value, and that'll be done in another macro.
I understand I need a worksheet change event macro in the specific sheet and need the following code for yellow:
Code: .Interior.Color = RGB(255,255,0)
, but any further I get stuck as it involves 'target addresses'
I have the following code that should pop up a message when column E is left blank when "other" is typed into column D. But I cannot get it to work.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng As Range, LastRow As Range Dim x As Integer If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub Set rng = Range("F:F") If Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub If Target = "" Then For x = 1 To 5000 If Cells(x, 4).Value = "Other" And Cells(x, 5).Value = "" Then Answer = MsgBox("If other, please state", vbOKCancel, "CONFIRMATION") End If Next x End If End Sub
