Avoid Changing A Loop Counter Within A Loop?

Oct 24, 2009

I've worked on a solution for this thread (http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...-automate.html) but have been mentally challenged with how to avoid changing the loop counter in one of the loops I have used to resort an array of file names from the getopenfile dialog.

The aim of the shown code (see post 12 of the above link for attached file) is to check if the file containing the macro is included in the array returned by getopenfile while sorting the array of file names, and if so, moving it to the end of the array for "deletion" by redimming the array to exclude the last item. This problem of the open file being selected in the dialog may never arise, but... as the OP's request in the other thread was to allow two-way comparisons between numerous files, I've considered it likely enough to test for.

Here's the code I have settled for esp between the commented lines of hash symbols, which does change the counter (see the commented exclamation marks), but prevents an infinite loop (on my second try!) by using a second boolean flag of "HasCounterBeenChanged". Is there a better way of doing this? Or, alternatively (not in my thread title), is it possible to prevent the active file being selected through one of the arguments in the getopenfilename method?

Non-consecutive Loop Counter: The Counter Skip Values In Between

Jun 29, 2006

How can I write a For-Next Loop and have the counter skip values in between. For example:

For i = 8 to 17

When that is completed, the counter jumps to 21:

For i = 21 to 30

When that is completed, the counter jumps to 34:

For i = 34 to 43

How do you assign a loop counter value to a range row value? Scenario: Add cells from a column that arenít successive. SUM C10 + C17 + C24 etc

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim total As Integer
Dim counter As Integer
For counter = 10 To 700 Step 7
total = total + Range("Ccounter")
Next counter

To Assign A Counter To The MsgBox- Exit Loop

Aug 31, 2007

This loop is to find if there is the string "Need Parent " in the range. If so the Msgbox notifies the user.

After it finds the string, the loop needs to exit- I tried to assign a counter to the MsgBox, but no go....

For i = 6 To lLrw
If Range("D" & i).Value = "Need Parent" Then
MsgBox "Stop. Parent Records Still Need To Be Created."
End If
ii = MsgBox + 1
If MsgBox > 0 Then Exit For
End If
Next i

How To Avoid Repeating A Similar Loop Several Times (pivot)

Mar 2, 2007

I am coding a macro that would take all information needed from an existing pivot to put in in a new report file.

Now the problem is that I couldn t get to paste the data (for some weird reason), so I did a loop that terminates with IsEmpty...

My problem is I have to write on loop per column, because I don t know how to tell excel to go to next column (that I know!) AND to the first row, which means doing an offset of (x,1), but how do you set the x for it to be adaptable if I change the length of the pivot table?

I really hope someone can help me with this, I tried to replace range("first cell") by cell(x,... and set x as a variable but i am not good enough obviously....

Here is what I have so far:

Dim k
Dim w As Integer

Workbooks.Add
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "C:Dokumente und EinstellungenCustomerServiceDesktopMonthlyReportAutomated.xls"
'iniatiation before loop
Workbooks("ChannelProductionlastestupdateJAN2007").Sheets("pivot").Activate
Workbooks("ChannelProductionlastestupdateJAN2007").Sheets("pivot").Range("a20").Select
k = Selection

Loop Within A Loop (repeat The Loop Values)

Mar 31, 2008

With Sheets("regrade pharm_standalone")
For Each r In .Range("standaloneTerritory")
If r.Value = "X101" Then
r.EntireRow.Copy
Sheets("X101").Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
End If
Next r
End With
-------------------
I need to repeat this loop for values from X101 to X151. In all cases, the sheet name is equal to the value I'm looking up (eg: value = X102 goes to sheet X102).

I have a named range called 'territories' that contains the list of X101 -> X152.

I'm hoping to make the code perform the loop for each of the territories without my having to copy & paste and change the 'X101' 51 times as this would seem a rather silly thing to do!

Changing Macro To Use A Loop

Mar 12, 2014

I'm using a macro to drag down a formula across a worksheet then again further down the worksheet which is working ok but I know there has to be a better way of doing it. At the moment every time I add a new column I have to edit the macro over and over and its getting out of hand. I know there must be a way of rewriting the macro into a loop but my skills are obviously still new.

Here's the macro:

[Code] ......

This continues over to column AO so far then I drop down a few rows and do it again:

[Code] .....

I think I need to set variables that set the row and column each time. maybe a "drag formula one column at a time from row x to row y until column header is empty then move to the new row and repeat"?

Loop With Changing Variables

Oct 16, 2007

i have set up some test script below!

i dont know if it is possible but can you concatinate two variables i.e in the example below can i move from Sum1 to Sum6 using the intiger stored in i as the end of the sum variable

Sub Sum()
Dim i As Integer
Dim Sum1, Sum2, Sum3, Sum4, Sum5, Sum6 As Integer
Dim Ltr As String
Dim Sum As String
Sum = "Sum"

Sum1 = Range("B5").Value
Sum2 = Range("C5").Value
Sum3 = Range("D5").Value
Sum4 = Range("E5").Value
Sum5 = Range("F5").Value
Sum6 = Range("G5").Value

For i = 1 To 6
MsgBox "The value in cell " & i "is " & Sum & i
Next i

End Sub

VBA: How To Program A Changing Variable Name In A Loop

May 20, 2006

Trying to code my first custom VBA function. The function is supposed to translate the words in a cell by repeatedly looping through the string and looking through a list of provided translation words.

Problem is the variable name changes with each loop, and I can't figure out how to program the name change.

Function TestTranslate(TranslateCell, ProductCell) As String

Dim t As Long
Dim TranslateCeiling As Long
Dim SS1 As String
Dim SS As String
Dim Q, R As String
Dim W As String
Dim LLRString, MLRString, SLRString As String
Dim LRString, MRString, SRString As String
Dim TArray() As String

Looks like the loop keeps defining Q as "SS" & t instead of doing the select case formula. I tried removing the Q variable altogether and making it read just "SS" & t = Replace(R, LLRString, LRString) for example and keep getting a compile error.

For Loop For Changing Formulae Based On Other Sheet

Jul 27, 2006

I want to write a For loop so that it checks the range G2:R2 of Sheet1 for the first non-zero cell in that range. When it comes to the first non-zero cell, it will change the formula of A2 on Sheet2 to have the SUM of that non-zero cell and the next two cells to the right. Example:

SHEET1-
G2 = ""
H2 = ""
I2 = ""
J2 = "3"
K2 = "4"
L2 = "8"
M2 = "9"
N2 = "2"
O2 = "5"
P2 = "3"
Q2 = "11"
R2 = "7"

SHEET2-
A2 = SUM('Sheet1'!J2:L2) --->"15"

Loop Through Multiple Files And Call Macros (but Unable To Loop)

May 14, 2014

Macro which loops through a number of files and calls the same macro in each of them. Unfortunately when I add "Application.Run..." to the code, it no longer loops through the process and instead stops after updating the first file in the loop. If I remove the "Application.Run..." code and add any other code, the loop works fine and it continues through the process repeating all the steps for each file found.

Why it stops after one file when using "Application.Run..." to call the macros?

NB I have a list of path and file names starting in row 8 of columns A and C. Each file in the list has a macro called UpdateS1 and promoupdate1.

Sub C_Run_Loop_Macro()
Dim lastRow As Long
Dim i As Long

Store Row Number Within Loop And Delete All Stored Rows After Loop?

Sep 11, 2013

I have working code that returns a row number within a for loop based on parameters I set.

Each time the for loop runs I would like to store this row number, then after the loop has finished, delete all stored rows.

Code:
for rowNum = 1 to x (some variable end row number which I already have worked out using End(xlUp).Row)
if x = y then
*storedRow = rowNum
end if
next rowNum
*

Lines with a * are the bits I can't work out. I've been trying to understand arrays by reading posts on what other people have done, but I can't fit (or fully understand) the reDims, or reDim preserves into my code. I've seen what appear to be quite complex ways involving uBounds and LBounds, but unfortunately I can't see how to use them.

All I want is to simply keep adding a row numbers to a variable, (i.e. row 2, 5, 20, 33, 120, etc) and then delete those specific rows.

Loop Through Cells And Ranges Reverse Order With Backwards Loop

Aug 30, 2006

I am looping through each cell in a range and I would like to loop in reverse order.

Dim CELL As range
Dim TotalRows As Long
TotalRows = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For Each CELL In Range("C1", "C" & TotalRows)
CELL.Select
'Code here to delete a row based on criteria
Next

I have tried:

For Each CELL In Range("C" & TotalRows, "C1")

and it does not make a difference. I need to loop in reverse order since what I am doing in the loop is deleting a row. I am looking at a cell and determining its value. If the value is so much, then the row gets deleted. The problem is that the next row "moves up" one row (taking the pervious cell's address) and therefore the For Each Next loop thinks it has already looked at that row.

Loop Through Index Worksheets Using For Loop And Select Clause

Nov 4, 2013

I have a workbook that contains, say, 50 worksheets: the first two worksheets summarise the data and are static in that they don't move position. However, the next four worksheets contain certain data for any given month. Each time a new month comes along, say, November, I insert four new worksheets after the two static ones as a result October's four worksheets are simply moved down the line in terms of worksheet order.

I need a macro to refer to the first six worksheets only (not the other tabs). I opted for index referencing for each worksheet, ie one - six. Now within these six worksheets in any given month, I need to sort the data by a certain column. The problem: in sheets 1,4,5 and 6 I need to rank by column E, but in sheets 2 and 3 I need to rank by column C. I have stepped through the code, which works for sheets 3-6, but doesn't seem to refer to sheets 1-2.

Sub WorksheetLoop()
'
' Loop through an indexed number of worksheets; _
' & this ensures that the worksheet range is dynamic _
' and is able to adjust when new sheets are added/removed, etc.
'
'Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim i As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet

Copying From One Loop To Paste Into Another Loop?

Aug 27, 2012

I am working on some code that loops through a column of number values. Whenever it encounters a number value and a blank cell in an offset column, it places that number value into an offset cell (forming a separate column to be compared to another column in a separate sheet). I would like to take all the values in that new column and begin placing them in a new column in a separate sheet adjacent to another table. Most of the time, these values should match the adjacent values in the separate worksheet. However, if they don't match, I would like a new row to be created for that mismatched value.

For example. This is the first worksheet. So far, my macro loops through the column with rows 1-5. It looks in the offset cell(0,2) for Isempty value and then places that value into the offset cell(0,6)

Endless Loop Within A Loop

Oct 28, 2006

I have loops working in other loops. The macro is almsot working well. It does the calculation i want but it fails to stop a loop, because of that, the macro can't run the next main loop (c), which is to move to the next cell where the calculations must be run.

I attach a file. the troubleshooting macroation is Sub Itiration.

The code of this macro are bellow. Basically, the loop using d as counter run into an endless loop. I don't how to stop this loop without affecting the results which are calculated correctly.

Sub Itiration()
Dim CurCell As Object
Dim TempSum As Double
Dim d As Integer

For c = 3 To Cells(3, 4)
If Cells(11, c) > 0 Then

Slow Down Loop At Each Loop

Nov 18, 2006

Going through a loop, I am trying to load pictures into an image box (or alternatively into a label) one by one i.e. going through the loop the first time, I want to load picture 1, then on the second loop, picture 2 and so on. A bit like an automated slide show.

I have written a simple loop and have used the loadpicture function to load the picture into the image box. When the code runs, the image box only gets populated after the last run through the loop. I have tried using application.screen updating function and the image.activate function without success. It is a simple bit of code and I expect an easy problem to solve if you know excel vba well.

Loop Gets Slower On Each Loop

I am parsing 15,000 files from a network server. The files are all the same format and length. The problem is that the first few iterations of my loop run fairly quickly, 7 to 9 seconds a case, but after only 300 iterations I'm up to 60 seconds a case. How do I keep the last iteration running as fast as the first iteration? I've included the main loop of my parsing routine below.

How To Avoid Replace From Changing The Datatype From Text To General

Apr 18, 2013

I am trying to find a way of replacing a whole amount of data, over 1000 items, initially each cell contains this >>> 056001 Not Set, I am trying to remove 'Not Set', but the big problem I am facing is that Excel also removes the leading 0 or zeroes, when it finishes removing ... I tried several things, like changing the column to Text, and then paste the data from another column, because I read the Text format is preserved, nothing, as soon as the column is pasted it changes back to General, if I change it back to Text again, and then apply a Search and Replace, each cell is changed to 56001, which is not what I intended, the only way I have seen it works is if I manually remove the string, then it works and is changed into the text format and number as text, as I intended to
