Worksheet Selection Change Event Not Triggered

Mar 5, 2009

I am using Excel 2007, and I have a macro (that is working) that I would like to run whenever there has been a new selection in a dropdown list on my worksheet. I have done this many times before in other workbooks, and I have always used:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

End Sub

To my knowledge this should trigger the macro when the dropdown selection changes. However, this time it is not working. The macro runs fine manually, but it does not run when the dropdown selection changes.

Worksheet Change Event Triggered By Formula Change?

Dec 6, 2011

Basically the situation I have is Sheet2 has many references to cells in Sheet1. Sheet2 is for all intents and purposes a kind of nicely formatted report form, and Sheet1 is the input form.

My ultimate goal is to automatically resize row heights on Sheet2 when cell contents change on Sheet2.

Using a worksheet_change event isn't working I presume because it doesn't see the formula output change as a worksheet change, the worksheet_change is firing only when the input is changed in Sheet1.

how can I capture these formula output changes on Sheet2 (triggered from input on Sheet1) OR is there a way of making a particular sheets rows always adjust in height to best fit?

Worksheet Change To Function To Add Text To Cell Which Initially Triggered Change

Jan 10, 2014

i have some existing code which is trigerred when anything is input into column c. The code then adds various information in another three columns. One of which pastes a vlookup formulae, and i would like this forumlae pasted into the column c cell which i initialy edited, in order to remove the requirement for one additional column.

The existing code i have is:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim MyText As String
MyText = Environ("username")
If Target.Cells.Column = 3 Then
With Target
If .Value "" Then
.Offset(0, 2).Formula = "=VLOOKUP(D:D,'P:TAOffshoreTAOffshoreTreasuryRecsGeneralCommit ID''s for control Sheet - Do not move or delete[commit ids - DO NOT DELETE OR MOVE.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1:$B$65536,2,0)"

[code].....

I have tried changing the offset to (0,0) or changing the offset to 'target = ', which does add in the vlookup but then the macro debugs at the 'If .Value "" Then' code?

Run Selection Change Event Only If The Row Selection Changes

Mar 26, 2007

I'm using the following code in a worksheet:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
col = ActiveCell.Column
Range("output") = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -(col - 4)).Value
End Sub

In case it's not obvious, the macro places the value in the active row and 4th column of the worksheet into the range "output".
The problem is, the worksheet is large and somewhat slow to recalculate. This macro forces a recalc on any selection change, but i only need it to run when the row selection changes, not the column.
I'm sure there's a straightforward way to reprogram this.

Worksheet Change Event :: (ByVal Target As Range) Event In Module After Creating A Sheet

Mar 27, 2009

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?

VBA Code Triggered By An Event

Jan 25, 2008

I have 2 worksheets ('pathways', 'pathway events').

'pathways' has unique rows with a unique ID i.e. [Pathway ID] whilst 'pathway events' has the same initial column [Pathway ID] but with multiple values of the same [Pathway ID] value.

If an [Pathway ID] value is selected in 'pathways', I want it to trigger some code which will open a new worksheet and copy the multiple rows in 'pathway events' with the same [Pathway ID] value and paste them into the new worksheet.

Is this possible to do in Excel. I normally use Access and you can have triggered events.

Event Triggered Code Not Working ?

Mar 20, 2008

I have a manually calc'd workbook with the following code


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("VAL1CELL")) Is Nothing Then Me.Calculate
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("VAL2CELL")) Is Nothing Then Me.Calculate
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("CHOICE")) Is Nothing Then Me.Calculate
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("$L$36")) Is Nothing Then Me.Calculate

If ActiveCell.Address = "VAL1CELL" Then Range("VAL2CELL") = Range("Y$41")

End Sub


Everything works as it should other then the part that is

If ActiveCell.Address = "VAL1CELL" Then Range("VAL2CELL") = Range("Y$41")

When the user selects VAL1CELL This is cell B2 and is a drop down, I want VAL2CELL which is C2 and also a drop down to show what is in Y41 (i.e the first name that appears in the drop down...not a thing happens ? is there a flaw to my code ?

Event Triggered When A Shape Is Moved

Jan 20, 2010

Is there a way to trigger a macro when a shape is moved by the user? If I set the OnAction property for a shape, then the cursor changes to a hand when it is over the shape, and I can detect a mouse click on the shape, but I cannot drag and drop the shape. If I reset the OnAction property to "" (empty quotes), then I can drag and drop again within the worksheet, but I can't trigger the macro.

Worksheet_Change or Worksheet_SelectionChange are not triggered by this event.

People have suggested using timers to continuously poll the shapes and determine their locations, but is there an easier way?

What I am trying to do is create a sheet where the user can visually move around objects (in this case representing employees) and deposit them in various zones. The spreadsheet would then apply certain attributes to the shape i.e. change colour according to where the shape is and if it is in an unsuitable zone. I can do all of this, but I want it to work the instant the shape is moved, not rely on the user to hit a button.

Screen Flickers On Selection Change Event?

Mar 9, 2012

My screen flickers when I use the following code.

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.EnableEvents = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Dim WTH As Long
If Target.Row = 19 Then
WTH = 1
End If
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
If I comment out the code, my screen doesn't flicker.

In the "Tmp = 1" line I was using the special cells method to color constants red (without selecting anything). When I use that code instead of the "Tmp=1" line, it takes about a second to change cells, and I see the "4 Processors Calculating Message" in Excel when the code fires--even if it's not in row 19.

Stop Selection Change Event Firing When More Than 1 Cell

Oct 12, 2007

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

The ranges defined are non-contigious ranges.

Event Triggered When Not Expected When Deleting Protected Cell Data

Oct 31, 2013

I have a relatively complex excel VBA solution which has a top level spreadsheet containing a dashboard of stats (test statuses within projects).

There are various reporting options available which open other spreadsheets to collect data and present it within the top level spreadsheet - these are closed once the data has been copied.

For example, I select an option to show me all the issues relating to tests for a particular team and the solution opens a series of spreadsheets and copies the issues into the summary spreadsheet.

The problem is that the report has the option to double-click a row, which essentially opens the corresponding Excel file and focuses on the relevant row containing the issue.

This works fine but I've added protection to the report to prevent users editing the data here (they should double-click to open the underlying file and edit there).

The report is a protected sheet and locked/unlocked cells can be selected - in fact, they need to be to allow the double-click event.

If I put my cursor in a cell and click Delete then pass over the warning that the sheet is protected then select Enter, Excel raises error "1004: Select method of Range Class failed".I understand that use of worksheet select is not a good idea but what concerns me is that the event which occurred prior to the double-click (the one which collected the data for the report) is running when it shouldn't be so.

Why would the earlier event be triggering and why doesn't it hit my breakpoint placed in the related code block even though that must be running?

Excel 2010 :: Selection Change Event On Text Inside Textbox?

Jun 10, 2014

As part of a program I'm writing in VBA (for Excel 2010), I have a textbox in a user form used as an interface to write a formula in cells in Excel.The resulting value of a formula from a cell is loaded up into the textbox. It would be shown in the textbox like "See 1.2 and 1.3" where the formula in the cell is

[Code].....

This is just used as an example but the principle is there. It is worth noting that I’m writing this for very inexperienced Excel users but I need them to be able to edit the string part of the formula without breaking the formula.

However where I’m struggling is to pick up a selection change event inside a text box already selected. I need to be able to check if the textbox.SelStart is within an address value or within the string in the textbox.

The event Enter won’t work if the user is already editing the textbox (i.e. typing stuff) and then clicking or using the keyboard arrow to move the cursor somewhere else inside the textbox. I don’t think the event Change is the solution either as it would mean that the user would have already typed something and as a result the formula may already be broken.

I have had a good look around and I didn’t find an event for a selection change inside a textbox. Does it exists and/or is there a way that would have the same result?

VBA Worksheet Change Event

May 28, 2009

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

End Sub

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.

Worksheet Change Event Not Firing

Aug 22, 2007

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)

Cell Formatting On Worksheet Change Event

Nov 22, 2011

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)

Worksheet Change Event :: Trying To Set The IntRMACol Variable

Apr 25, 2009

This is the code on the Worsheet Change event.


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

'Define the RMAs range and count the RMA ships. Do the rest of the math based on this calculation.
Dim intRMACol As Integer, EndRow As Integer, intRMAShips As Integer, LastCol As Integer
Dim rngRMAs As Range, rngHome As Range, sht As Worksheet
Set sht = ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet
Set rngHome = Cells(1, 1)
rngHome.Activate
EndRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
intRMACol = Cells.Find(What:="RMA#", After:=[A1], SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext).Column
Set rngRMAs = rngHome.Offset(1, intRMACol - 1).Resize(EndRow, 1)
rngRMAs.Name = "RMAs"
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 1).Formula = "=COUNTA(RMAs)"
intRMAShips = rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 1).Value
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol).Formula = "=SUM((" & EndRow & " - 1) - " & intRMAShips & ")"
rngHome.Offset(1, LastCol + 2).FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(RC[-2] : RC[-1])"
End Sub

I keep getting stuck when trying to set the intRMACol variable. I have used the code all over the place, but only in Modules, never on a worksheet event. EndRow, the variable right above, sets correctly so I don't get it.

Also, do I have to define the Target variable? Am I going about this the right way? I basically want three formulas to calculate when any change is made on the worksheet.
