Auto Generate A Comment Box Based On A Cell Value That Has Variable Reference Cells

Jan 30, 2010

I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B".
If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".

Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.

Auto Insert Comment Based On Value Entered

Dec 7, 2009

Is there a way to auto insert a cell Comment when a particular value is entered and then have the Comment copied to a cell in another worksheet in the same workbook?

The value entered into the cells i want this function to work with is from a Validation list. If the cell's value was to change, for instance the user going back to a cell to change the value for whatever reason, I would like the previous comments to remain and then give the user the choice to edit comment or not.

I've had a look in the Forums using search but nothing close seems to be forthcoming.

Variable Cell Reference Based On Minimum Difference

Feb 12, 2010

I have a monitoring system that records a data point with a date/time stamp several times a day at random intervals. For each reading I want to calculate the change compared to the first reading that was more than 24 hours ago, which could be anywhere from 1 to 20 rows above the current one. Hence with the timestamp in col A and the value in col B, the formula in col C, for example cell C20, needs to read something like =B20-Bxyz, where xyz is the row number of the first reading that is more than 24 hours, i.e the first row xyz where A20-Axyz >1.

How To Reference A Cell In Another Workbook And Return Cell Value And Comment

Nov 2, 2012

What is the best way to reference a cell in another workbook and return the cell contents and the comment on that cell. I would like the comment to come across as a comment in the new workbook becuase the comment is actually a picture.

Hope this makes sense. I did find a macro through googling but I couldn't get it to work? I don't really want to copy and paste because eventually I have hundreds of sheets & thousands of cells to refer to.?

Highlight Cells Based On Cell Reference On Another Worksheet

May 27, 2014

I am trying to find a way to automatically highlight all the cells specified by the cell references in a column on another worksheet (which will constantly have new values added).

On the attached sample, the 'Data Before' tab shows the base data before any highlighting. As cell references are added to the 'References' tab in 'column A' I want the respective cell to be highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab resulting in the 'Data After' tab and each time a new cell reference is added to the 'References' tab, the respective cell is then highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab.

I would like to have control over the highlight colour so that a different highlight colour can be specified for each date change, i.e. all cell references that are shown on the same date are the same colour but where the date changes a different highlight colour can be specified.

Formula Needed Based On 2 Conditions And Variable Row Reference

Jan 9, 2014

I am an architect and recently I was required to do some extensive calculation relating to water requirements and toilet requirements for a building that i was designing. i created a excel file, with a basic vlookup function to put certain values in the cells that are pre-defined for a particular building typology (mostly created by governmental bodies as guidelines). for example, when i choose a particular type in column E, column F and G fills up automatically. now this table also gives me occupant load based on what is the area i enter in column D.

The problem is that I want to automate the calculation of toilet requirements. Now, each typology will have a different formula to calculate WC/Urinal/washbasin.

1. there will be 17 different formula - one for each typology (as shown in sheet 5)
2. Column j will calculate what is the number of WC required based on 2 criteria - first id what is the typology and then looking what is the number of occupant.

The problem here is for example, if in E9, selected typology as "offices", the formula of offices typology will be used in J9 and occupant value from H9 will be used but if i have E18 also selected as offices typology, the same formula will use occupant value mentioned in H18 instead of using H9.

Hence, excel will first have to look what is the typology selected. based on that, it will load formula - out of that 17 different formula - specific to that typology and finally it will refer to corresponding row for occupant load and will use it in the formula to get the result.

I am completely new to VBA so im sure there plenty wrong with this VBA script but so far ive managed to paste the data but it just pastes across the whole row instead of just the cells ive copied.. now i just get errors on the script.

Macro That Will Auto Color Multiple Cells Based On Data Displayed In One Cell

Jan 7, 2013

I am trying to find a way to write a Macro that will auto color multiple cells based on what data is displayed in one cell. The cell I want to reference is a vlookup cell.

Basically this is a part label. And depending what part is selected from the list my vlookup will display its position on a vehicle(i.e.. FR, FL, RR, RL, Etc..). So if vlookup comes back with FR I want the various cells on the label to be orange, etc..

ALSO: if there is a way to embed it so it does this automatically (rather than run the macro each time).

making a macro that will scan for duplicates, length & empty cells.

I have the sample file below that does conditional formatting but it doesnt help as much because I want to show the reason for the highlight's on a comment instead.

sample file : [url]

file that might help out: [url]

checks would be:
column A - duplicates and/or length should not be over 100 characters
column B - duplicates
column F - should only contain 2 comma's(or 3 keywords)
all columns - check if no entries are found(empty cells)

Insert A Comment Based On The Value Of A Cell

Jan 18, 2010

I have data validation and conditional formatting set for my sheets. However, I cannot figure out something.

I want a "comment" box (just as if I would click on "add comment") to pop up automatically if the user enters a certain value in a cell.

For example, if cell C4="1" then no further action is required. If cell C4=anything other than "1", then the user would be required to enter a comment. I would also like the comment to autopopulate with the users login id.

I will attach the book I am working on for reference, but I do not have any code written for this as I could not figure out where to start.

Decision Based On Cell Comment

May 22, 2007

I would like to execute code based on the cell comment. If cell comment = "something" then do something. Is there a way to do this? Also is there a way to add aditional comment to the cell if one already exists? I am currently using this to write the comment

Selection.ClearComments
Selection.AddComment
Selection.Comment.Text Text:="New comment"

Obviously this clears the previous comment, I would like to just add more to it and retain the original comment as well.

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

Excel 2003 :: Macro That Will Generate A List Based On Cells Value

Mar 6, 2012

I have a workbook that has 30 tabs in it. Each tab is a report card for students. What I'd like to do is create another tab with a button on it that when I hit the button it will search through each tabs range of D12:D40, D48:D76, D84:D112, D120:D136, J12:J40, J48:J76, J84:J112, and J120:J136. And if any of these cells has an MS in them then this new sheet I have created will list each students name which is in cell E5 and list what they recieved the MS for. This will be in the same row number but in column B. So if cell D12 has an MS in it then this report will list the students name and what's in cell B12.

Use A Cell/variable As A Sheet Reference?

Jan 10, 2010

I have a formula that pulls data from another sheet using standard reference of sheetname! I want to build this forumla to use several sheets, and would like to pull the sheet names from other cells.

For example... instead of LEMONS!a1 and LIMES!B2

I would like to use REF1!a1 and REF2!B2

where REF1 and REF2 are pulled from cell Z1 which contains test 'Lemons' and cell Z2 which contains text 'Limes'

How can I do this?

Reference Specific Cell As Variable?

Feb 22, 2012

I have a spread sheet that lists a bunch of dates and expected volume that will be associated with the date. I need to build a macro that will look at the first date expand it out for several months then look at the volume and break that out over a week's time.

That part is simple enough but I need to turn this into a looping statement and I cannot figure out a way to get my macro to always come back to the next date in my list.

Ideally I would like something that is a variable that references the cell I want so I can do something like this.

Code:
MYRANGE = range("B2")
Do
range(MYRANGE).select

[Code]....

This should work for me perfectly if I can just figure out how to make the MYDATE varaible reference a sepecific cell rather than a value or text in the cell.

Using Variable As Cell Reference In Formula

Jul 15, 2014

I'm trying to use a variable as a cell reference in a formula using '&', but can't seem to get it to work. I've looked through the forum, which have examples of how to do this using a range, but not just as a single cell reference. This puts the formula '=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)", which obviously gives me an error.

My code is:

Code:
Dim lastrow As String
lastrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1

ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Formula = "=VLOOKUP("A & lastrow &"" , Vlookupinput, 2,0)"

Cell Reference- Able To Reference Two Cells To The Left Even As More Cells Are Added

Jun 11, 2008

I have 5 columns set up: A,B,C,D,E
D is the sum of A and B
E is the sum of A,B,and C

As I add in a new column to the right of C (call it C2), I need D (which has shifted over one) to sum A,B, and C.

I also need E (which has also shifted over one) to sum A,B,C, and C2.

Essentially I need a function in a cell that will be able to reference two cells to the left even as more cells are added.
