Worksheet Get Focus

Jun 2, 2006

I've got a worksheet with a cell called "cellName" and a button "cmdSearch". When I enter a string in cellName and press cmdSearch a query is done on a database and the result is returned to the form. Now, when I enter text into cellName I then have to click on a different cell before I can click on cmdSearch. What I'd like to do is have cmdSearch take focus if I press enter in cellName. I know how to do this with a UserForm, but I like having all of this on the worksheet and not dealling with a popup box.

Returning Focus To The Worksheet

Jun 24, 2009

I've made a non-modal 'Toolbox' form that floats over my worksheets. When a button is clicked a graphic item is copied from a hidden sheet and pasted into the current sheet. The graphic remains selected but the toolbox form takes the focus away from the sheet. When the user wants to move the graphic there is no problem in mouse-dragging but I'd like the user to be able to nudge the graphic using the keyboard arrow keys without having to click to give the sheet the focus. So, I guess the question is: How can I give focus to the worksheet following the Paste action?

Takes Focus When Printing

Jan 8, 2009

I am running software that calls an Excel macro using DDE. The macro populates a sheet with information to be printed, then prints the sheet.

I would like for this to take place in the background with Excel never taking focus from the software that calls the Excel macro. Currently Excel some times takes focus from the software and some times does not. The macro also takes the information it prints and stores it to another sheet, but I don't think that's the culprit stealing focus from the other software.

Giving Back Focus

May 10, 2007

I've got a Macro that generates three reports for me, one at a time.

After a report has been generated it creates an Email and attachs the report to the Email, I then check the report is ok before sending out.

The problem is, that once the first Email has been generated Excel is pushed into the background and the macro sloooooooows down.

I believe (though I will quite happily be wrong) this is because Excel is no longer the PC's main concern.

What I was wondering was, is it possible to bring Excel back to the foreground once the Email has been generated.

Set Focus, If Thats The Correct Code

Nov 7, 2008

I have a userform with several fields located in it. For the most part, it looks like a user information form, Name, Date,, stuff like that. There is a field that the user enters some information, and using the afterUpdate function for the field, it searches to see if the value is unique. The problem is that when I tab from that field, if the value is not unique, I want the cursor placed back in that field (textbox). SetFocus doesn't seem to do what I want, unless I am using it incorrectly.

Set Focus To TextBox On UserForm

Oct 16, 2006

On the summary page click on 'Enter Sale' and notice that Customer Advisor' text box gets the focus and the cursor is flashing. (Which is what I want). Enter any name and a sale value (say 'A' and '1') and click the 'OK' button
But when I tried to enter another sale the OK button still had the focus. So in the VBA Project / Forms / frm_sale / OK Click event - near the bottom
I added a set focus before the 'frm_sale.hide' - This removed the focus from the 'OK' box - but the cursor is still not in the text box, and it needs to be clicked in order to enter text. This is clearly something trivial I am missing - but the blinkers are on and I cant spot it

Focus To Return To Textbox

What I need is that if there is an error in password or sheetnumber ths user gets the choice to re-enter correct data with vbYesNo or similar.

Change Focus Between Applications

Apr 12, 2007

I am using MS Word to create a list to go into Excel, it seems advantageous to do it this way because I'm using the Heading Outline Numbering feature of Word.

Presently my macro assumes the word document is closed. How do I modify the macro to:

1. check if the file is open?
2. if already open, switch the focus to word?
3. switch the focus back to excel?

Sub GetDataFromWordDoc()

Dim FileToOpen As String

FileToOpen = ThisWorkbook.Path & "5Whys.doc"
Sheets("Data1").Select
' MsgBox "Active sheet is " & ActiveSheet. Name ' My check
ActiveSheet.Range("WordClear").Select ' Existing data to remove
Selection.Clear

Set appWD = CreateObject("Word.Application")

' here I would like to check if the word file is open

appWD.Documents.Open Filename:=FileToOpen '

appWD.Visible = True
appWD.Selection.WholeStory
appWD.Selection.Copy

Range("WTarget").Select ' Single cell range to start paste
ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Text", Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:= _
False
'Range("D3").Select
'ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
Sheets("5_Why_O").Select

' At this point word in the fore, excel in the back,

Determine Which Text Box Has Focus

Aug 21, 2007

I am using excel VBA userform and have the following elements:

1) .textboxA
2) .textboxB
3) .commandbutton_insertdate

(clicking on this button will insert today's date into either textboxA or textbox B. I use an accelerator 'D' so user can use Alt+D to insert the date conveniently.)

My question is: How can I determine which text box (A or B) is in focus when i execute Alt+D?

My objectives are: When focus is on textboxA, and user Alt+D, today's date will be inserted into textboxA When focus is on textboxB, and user Alt+D, today's date will be inserted into textboxB

My problem is: It seems that when I use Alt+D, the focus will jump to the command button instead, so none of the text box are in focus!

Set Focus Not Working On TextBox After After Update

Mar 30, 2014

I am creating an Add Contact form. There is a checkbox for Individual (if left unticked then contact is a business entity - not an individual).

If Individual = True and If the txtNameFirst control has no value in it Then after the end user tabs away from the txtNameLastRegistered, the form should SetFocus on the txtNameFirst textbox (entry for this field is mandatory only if the contact is an individual - otherwise this field is made invisible)

But it is not working. I tick chkIndividual, I enter a name in txtNameLastRegistered, I tab away, code is called from txtNameLastRegistered_AfterUpdate (which includes the SetFocus code) but the form appears without focus in any of the controls!

Returning Focus To Browser Tab That Is Already Open?

Is it even possible to write the two hypothetical functions described above?

In addition, I notice that they example given in the link that I posted also suggests ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink. This seems to work just as well, without needing the ShellExecute prototype.

The script all runs fine and leaves 4 output spreadsheets open for final manual formatting. However the mouse focus is changed by the script (somehow?) and no matter what I do the mouse wants to multi select cells. Clicking in a single cell always selects at least 3 or 4 cells and sometimes the whole column.

The only place in the code where I set any rules realted to selection is to set a file dialog to allow multi selection of files. That is

Set Focus To A Textbox When Userform Opens

Jul 29, 2009

I'm creating a userform for editing membership records of a small organisation. So I want the focus to default to textbox tboxFind which is used for searching the data.

I've put tboxFind first in the tab order, and in subroutine Userform_Initialize, the last line is tboxFind.SetFocus

Using Excel2000 on Windows Vista, it works OK.

Opening the same workbook in Excel2000 on WinXP, no textbox has the focus when the form opens, but once the user has started to use the form, the focus defaults back to tboxFind, as it should.

So why is the focus not where it should be when the form opens in WinXP?

Set Focus To A Sheet Before Save Data

Oct 13, 2011

I have a problem when i need to save an excel workbook. I have 7 sheets, and in one of these (sheet3) i make 3 data validating list, based an if formula.

in cell C9 (sheet3) i make a data validation list where i tiped =IF($D$8="Turism",Norma_poluare,Norma_poluare2)
in cell C10 (sheet3) i make a data validation list where i tiped
=IF($D$8="Turism",Cilindree,$A$1)
in cell C11 (sheet3) i make a data validation list where i tiped
=IF($D$8="Turism",Emisii_CO2,$A$1)

The "Norma_poluare","Norma_poluare2" tabels are in sheet 4 and the "Cilindree","Emisii_CO2" tabels are in sheet 5.

When i need to save the excel document, i must have open sheet 3, othewise excel returns me an error "One or more cells in this workbook contains data validation rules which refer to values on other worksheets.These data validation will not be saved". So I thought that before saving date, automatically to shift focul to sheet3, and after these excel to save the data. VB code for these problem.

Right now I have the Ok button Default property set to True.

I have a commandbutton on the spreadsheet that activates the userform.

Change Sheet Focus From UserForm

Jun 6, 2006

I've got a userform for entering data in a workbook with sheets for each month. ie: Jan'06 , Feb'06, etc. I've added a combobox that looks at my list of these sheets and when a certain month is chosen I would like that months sheet to come up behind the userform, so that the data is entered there when the form is completed.

The other option is to not change the sheet focus but to direct the data to the appropriate sheet based on the combo box. (No matter what sheet is currently selected)

On a related note, I have a text box showing the last date entered and I would like to make shure that it is updated based on the sheet selected in the combobox.

Using Modeless Userforms And Losing Focus

Jun 8, 2006

I have an application where by the user only sees userforms which then writes the data to the back end worksheets. So the Menu or front useform I have set at vbModeless, which also means that the user can now open up or use an already opened spreadsheet. I believe I am correct in saying you can't do this if the userform is modal. Anyway this is what the user wants, i.e to be able work on multiple spreadsheets, whilst my app is open. The problem is when they click on one of the other open spreadsheets and then click one of the buttons on my application, you get an error.

I believe is because I use code such as

frmMetrics.Show


Where I haven't specified the actual workbook, so excel doesn't know where to go to find the userform. So how do I specify the workbook, without constantly having to change the line, when version numbers changes ?

eg

Application.workbooks("Book1")
For the next revision the file may be called Book1.1
Application.workbooks("Book1.1")
