Automatically Change To Proper Case Once The User Leaves Any Of The Referenced Cells

Nov 6, 2008

In my worksheet there are ranges A3:C37, E3:E37, J3:K37 and P3:P37 that all contain text that I would like to automatically change to proper case once the user leaves any of the referenced cells.

I have tried various codes form this forum and searched for hours on the net for a solution to do this but no matter what I do/try nothing works (for long)

Another forum user did help me out with some code but there was an issue with column C, L & O (which are set as drop down lists) and when the code was put into the workbook these columns stopped working and froze the app.

Change To Proper Case In VBA

Aug 10, 2009

I found this bit of Worksheet_Change code to change the target area to UpperCase. This works fine.

If Not Intersect(Target, Columns(2)) Is Nothing Then
Set rng1 = Intersect(Target, Columns(2))
Set rng2 = Intersect(ActiveSheet.UsedRange, rng1)
For Each cell In rng2
If cell.Formula "" Then
cell.Formula = Format(cell.Formula, ">")
End If
Next cell
End If
I could not find anything telling me what the ">" means. I'm assuming that it is a special symbol/wildcard for UCase in VBA.

My question(s), is there a symbol for ProperCase so I can use the same code, just making it change the Target column to Proper? Also is there a list of the special symbols.

Change Text To Upper, Lower Or Proper Case On Entry

Sep 6, 2007

I would like to format a row of cells so that when a word is entered into the cell it automatically becomes a capital.

I need the word to be capitalized so that I can use it in a custom function. The function uses the word from this cell and goes through a bunch of cases in determing how to classify the string.

I think more than one solution is possible and I would greatly appreciate some feed back, I've tried looking into turning all the letters of a string in my VBA code to capitals, or a way to format the cells, so that the string is already capitalized when entered into the VBA code, but I'm still a novice at VBA and unsure on how certain commands work.

here is a sample of my vba code.

Function WeightI(Shape As String, sDim As String, dLenFt As Double) As Double
Const pi As Double = 3.14159265358979
Const Ft2In As Double = 12
Const dDen As Double = 0.2835 ' density of steel, pounds per cubic inch

Dim aiStr() As String ' dimensions as strings

Proper Case Exemptions

Jun 3, 2006

When I asked this question before, I was looking for a way to automate the exemptions on a UserForm. At that time I realized that automation was not a good choice and went with a CommandButton to turn off the Proper case for that entry. I am now trying to do the same thing on a Worksheet change event using this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column < 1 Or Target.Column > 9 Then Exit Sub
On Error Goto Errhndl
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Target.Column = 1 Then Target.Value = Application.Proper(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 2 Then Target.Value = Application.Proper(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 3 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 4 And Target.Value > "" Then Target.Value = UCase(Left(Target.Value, 2)) & "-" & Right(Target.Value, 2)
If Target.Column = 8 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 9 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
Application.EnableEvents = True
Exit Sub
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

My problem is with Target.Column = 1. I need a way to disable the proper case for a single row. I tried to use an additional column (J) and place a x in that row, but I could not figure out how to detect if there was anything in that column for the target row.

Refine Proper Case Macro

Jan 25, 2007

I am using this macro to ensure that a range of cells appear in Proper Case. However I am encountering a drawback, sometimes I have text which I want in Upper Case but which is changed into Proper Case. I was wondering if there was a way to work around this. Example: Practical W/W appears as W/w or Woodturing (GMC) appears as Woodtrunign(gmc)

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
'Forces text to Proper case for the range A15:A40
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Or Target.HasFormula Then Exit Sub

On Error Resume Next
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A15:A40")) Is Nothing Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Target = StrConv(Target, vbProperCase)
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
On Error Goto 0

Proper Case Text By Condition

Oct 19, 2007

How can I extend proper() to NOT change "PO Box 333" to "Po Box 333". Ideally, I would like to supply a list of words such as PO and all the 2 letter directionals (NE,NW,SE,SW).

There are also cases such as a last name of MacNamara which should have a capital M and N. Even worse, I see that 3rd becomes 3Rd which is very sad.

I'm assuming the data was supplied in uppercase

Prevent Proper Case Of Letters Following A Comma

Mar 17, 2007

When using the PROPER function, it capitalizes the first letter in a text string and any other letters in text that follow any character other than a letter, and converts all other letters to lowercase.

However, if A1 contains the text "2-cent's worth"; then =PROPER(A1) will return the following result: "2-Cent'S Worth".

Is there a way to prevent the PROPER function from capitalizing the first letter following the apostrophe?

Formatting Individual Columns To Proper And Upper Case

Mar 13, 2014

I have a worksheet which is populated from a macro using the following code.


Sheets("Create Sub Contractor").Range("B6:B65").Copy
With Sheets("Sub Contractor Information").Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
.PasteSpecial (xlValues), Transpose:=True
End With

The problem is that some of what is being copied needs to be Proper and Some Upper, therefore I cant use a paste special option.

What I'd like to be able to do is format the columns in the destination sheet ("Sub Contractor Information") from row 4 down to what ever format they need to be individually as there are some columns that are numbers, some text and numbers........

VBA Code To Change Font Colour Of Cell Referenced Letter Strings Within Range Of Cells

Jun 13, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet for work, and have managed to do everything I need to so far but I need to colour specific letter strings, certain colours within a range of cells (each letter string will only appear once on each sheet)

The strings I will be looking for vary depending on data entered so I will need to cell reference them

The strings that need colouring are in cells with other strings that must stay black (They cannot be separated from other strings due to the nature of the grid)

I need some strings red, some green, and some blue.

These changes should also apply to the whole workbook not just one sheet.

Is there a way to do this with the VBA code.

I have a dorm roster on one sheet and the other sheet is an Alpha Roster. I want it to automatically sort alphabetically (column B) . Any time I change the roster, the Alpha Roster sheet doesn't automatically sort, I have to hilight and re-sort it again.

I updated the file, there are 4 tabs at the bottom. 1st Floor, 2nd Floor, and 3rd Floor. I want to have all the names, room numbers, and phases (ph) in alphabetical order on the Alpha roster tab. And when ever I make changes to one of the Floors, it will automatically update it the Alpha Roster.

Macro Leaves All The Cells In The Range Selected

Jan 20, 2006

I have a worksheet with ever expanding data - rows at the bottom of the data
are continually added. I have a simple macro that sorts all of the data
according to preset parameters and selects the next blank cell in column A,
ready for more data:

Sub Macro5()
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("SortRange"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:= _
xlGuess, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:= _
Do Until ActiveCell.Value = IsEmpty(True)
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
End Sub

When running the Macro, this leaves all of the cells in the range 'selected'
(ie; coloured-over). What do I need to add to the Macro to just select the
cell in Column A and remove the highlighting from all the other cells?

Creating Files To Automatically Determine Proper Entry

Jan 1, 2009

I have posted about creating an Excel worksheet which would help determine proper entry into a retirement plan. Another idea that I had entailed setting up a separate worksheet which would return the dates of entry following an employee's date of hire. Therefore, an employee hired on 8/5/2005 would have dates of entry following that stand at 1/1/2006 and 7/1/2006. Then, I had an idea of creating a formula or function to add up the number of hours that the employee had worked.

Setting up a separate worksheet with the number of hours that an employee worked during the initial eligiblity computation period and the subsequent computation periods (separate respective columns for the initial eligibility computation period and then for each subsequent computation period) would help. I would calculate using sum functions.

So, to sketch this out:
One sheet would have the employee's DOH

Another worksheet would have the Dates of Entry subsequent to that DOH (e.g. for an employee hired 8/5/2005 the next Dates of Entry entails 1/1/2006, 7/1/2006, and 1/1/2007)

Yet Another Worksheet would sum the total hours that an employee had worked since DOH on a month by month basis (i.e. the total number of hours than employee had worked since his or her DOH up to a certain point on a monthly basis; e.g. an employee hired on 8/5/2005 would have on the sheet the calculation of the hours this employee had worked as of from 8/5/2005 to 9/1/2005, then the next column would have the total the number of hours worked by the employee from 8/5/2005 to 10/1/2005, etc.)

Finally, the worksheet with the DOH information would have a column which would (this would probably entail heavy use of VLOOKUP) snag the information as to how many months and years an employee had worked as of the subsequent Dates of Entry; if the employee had worked 1,000 hours and 12 months as of 1/1/2007, for example, the employee would enter the plan.

To explain the situation further:

The employee must work 1,000 hours during his or her initial eligibility computation period. That starts on the day of the first hour that an employee works for the company. So, an employee hired on August 1, 2005 who worked one hour on that day must 1,000 hours from then till August 1, 2006 to enter the plan as soon as possible. If the employee did not work 1,000 hours during that period, then the eligibility computation period shifts to the plan year. So, if the employee did not work 1,000 hours between August 1, 2005 and August 1, 2006, but did work 1,000 hours between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2006 (this of course presumes the plan operates on a calendar year)

Replace All To Change A Referenced File Name

May 28, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet that will be referencing approximately 20-30 separate workbooks which all have identical sheet / column structure and have a consistent file naming convention. ("###-YYYY") Since, this is referencing separate files and not sheets with this workbook, I cannot use INDIRECT. However, I should be able to use index / match referencing provide instructions for users to copy a set of cells down and the globally change the file name. The problem is that the file directory pops up with each instance and the user has to manually select or confirm the file.

There would be approximately 15 cells with a formula similar to this example and would want to change the two instances of "403" to a new 3-digit code, say "444". Then as each year cycles over, we'd want to change all instances of 2014 to 2015.

lagraffDownloads[403-2014.xlsx]Forecast Budget'!$D$15:$D$48,MATCH($P$2,'C:Users
lagraffDownloads[403-2014.xlsx]Forecast Budget'!$B$15:$B$48,0))

Any settings in Excel, or known tricks, so the user won't have to continuously click on the file and the find/replaces executes at each instance?

Change Column Referenced In Formula Based On Date

Dec 12, 2013

I'm trying to create a list that references an existing data set where I have staff listed month by month and based on today's date, imports only if there is data in that column. I have figured out how to check if the cell is blank or not, but what I want to do now is change the cell that is referenced in the formula based on the date. Here is the format of the spreadsheet I'm working with:



In this case, the "Team 1" and "Team 2" and "Team 3" references what team they are on that month. If it is blank, they aren't with the company any longer. The formula I am using is intended to import this data elsewhere, and is formatted like this:

=IF(ISBLANK(B2), "", A2) - My understanding is that this checks to see if B2 has data, and if it does, it inputs the employee name (A3) in that cell.

My ultimate goal is to be able to change the column referenced after the "isblank" calculation based on the date. So if today is April 2013, I want it to check B2, but if it's December 2013, I want the formula to check J2. Is there a way to do this? I don't mind if it's two steps (like if I have to put the date somewhere in the spreadsheet in order to run the calculation), but ultimately it would be the type of thing I could do that would leverage the existing data set so that I don't have to maintain two different spreadsheets of information.
