I am using Data Validation and I don't want the user to go past a cell without putting in an entry. When I leave the box (ignore blank) unchecked it doesn't do anything after I have protected the document.
I have a macro that creates mutiple, though varing numbers of, columns. Once the columns are created, a blank column is set up to the right of them. When the data is ideal, only one cell in each row created by the populated columns will have data in it. So lets say that in this example, the macro created 23 columns of data. A1 is blank, B1 is Widget, and C1 through the end are also blank. I need a macro that will look at the rows and find the populated column and copy that string of data to the blank 24th column (to the right) created after the poulated columns. So X1 (the 24th column) will have Widget placed in it.
Now I need it to do one other thing. In another example, let say there are 5 columns created this time. In the third row, there is data in A3 and D3. If they are the equal to each other (A3 value being 143256 and D3 value being 143256), then I need the 6th column created to have 143256 placed in it. However, if the data differs ( A3 value being 143255 and D3 value being 143288) then I need the word "Scrap" to appear in the sixth column.
Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.
Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).
What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:
a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice) d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.
Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....
how to set up a formula that would count the number of numbers in a column, only if the cells before those cells are blank. In plain English: total the number of occurences in each column, provided the value in cellrow is the first occurence in that row starting at column A. E.G
A B C D John x x Dave x x Kyle x x Bob x x
Count would return under Column A, 1; under Column B, 1; (because row John has a value in AJohn it is ignored), under Column C, 2; under Column D, 0.
I am looking to remove all blanks from a table I have and move all the data left. Right now the data is by date, and some dates are blank for some players (it is a basketball sheet) and filled for others, but I want to see it by game. So I have what is in the first table below, and I want it to look like what is in the second.
my question is how to return blank cell if i have no data inputted in left cell.. or if AH9 is blank or no data inputted AI10 will be blank using this formula.. =IF(AH9<75,"A",IF(AH9<82,"B",IF(AH9<87,"C",IF(AH9<92,"D","E"))))
I have a spreadsheet which contains 39 columns with a header row. The number of rows varies per spreadsheet. I'm running into a problem with highlighting(painting yellow) cells. Really the problem is selecting the cells to be highlighted. The macro is skipping some of my code completely and in other cases leaving some cells unhighlighted.
1. All blank cells in row AG should be painted yellow.
2. If column AF contains a cell with number 900 or greater, then the cell in AG (same row) should NOT be painted yellow.
3. All blank cells in rows AC and G should be painted yellow. Some spreadsheets may not contain blank cells.
Problem with the VB is not performing the code after the first command. It will highlight MOST of the cells in AG but for some reason it is leaving a few blank ones unhighlighted. The blank ones are usually at the bottom of the rows. I have no idea why it would miss these.
I believe the "ucase" tag is incorrect since its looking for a number but I am not sure what to put in its place and if I use something else should I dim it as ""?
I've attached an excel spreadsheet which contains a sample to this problem. I've also attached what it should look like if my code worked.
I have a spreadsheet with some cells setup with a drop-down list containing Y, N or N/A
This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard - quite a long-winded procedure just to change an incorrect choice!
What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser list.
How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?
I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.
I am currently working in an excel file for which i want to create a macro. I am using colomn F as the base from which it should be determined whether a row should be copied. In colomn F the user can select three options through data validation. If 'completed' is selected, the whole row should be copied to the second sheet, and each copied row should be pasted to the next empty row. The data on the source sheet starts at row 11 and should be copied to sheet 2, starting from row 11 as well.
I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.
What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)
Here's what I'm attempting to do: For each column, X,Y, Z, I am attempting to count nonblanks. However, the data was imported from Access and Oracle, and Excel treats what appear to be blank cells as nonblanks. I've tested this theory by highlighting a couple of "blank" cells and deleting them, and my count changes. So, can I get Excel to put a value into my "blank" cells, so then I could filter it out, or create a formula that would only count dates in my columns (which is what I'm after).
This is what I'm looking at:
A B C 1 2/4/2006 2/6/2006 ("blank") 2 ("blank") 12/13/2005 1/7/2006 3 2/20/2006 1/15/2006 ("blank")
In each column if I use a COUNTA I'll get a total of 3, instead of 2 for A, 3 for B and 1 for C.
I'm looking for a formula that pulls the text from a cell unti it hits a space. I'm using the formula below but keep getting #VALUE results. B1: =LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1,1)). I know it's not that hard but can't figure it out.
I am running into a seemingly random event upon executing a rather long program in Excel VBA: a square area turns gray in the left of the screen in Excel, making invisible everything under it, and affecting every sheet and workbook open. The only way to get rid of it, so far, has been to restart Excel. I thought it pertained to a faulty Office installation (XP/2002), but then it also happened on another machine (with Excel 2003) where I installed the application.
I have three search boxes in XL , two are search from and to dates and the other is search be ref.
I can currently search by dates and ref but would like to show all records in the specified dates if the ref field is left blank.
I am using the query writer and referencing back to cells in XL. I don't use the wizard or SQL. I have tried many options and think I should be using a OR statement with a wildcard but can't seem to get the result, does the wildcard just show the blank cells in the actual data?
I've 12 numbers for 12 months in Cells. 13th Cell is the sum of all these 12 Cells. What I want is - Can I have a Data Validation on the Sum that it should not be more than 100. So, the users can enter the values in 12 Cells to make it equal to sum of 100 only. I know, I can do in VB Code but if it is possible to do as a function or Data Validation..
I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.
I have data in some of the cells within range A26:A39
These cells are populated via an IF function on another worksheet. Even though the cells appear blank (as in the value returned is ""), there is a formula in these cells. I think it's called formula blank?
I am looking for a way to copy the data from the cells within the range which are not blank (ie: not = "") and paste this data elsewhere on the sheet in a list with no blank spaces in between.
I anticipate that there will be 4 non blank cells within this range.
Ideally I would have data from the nonblank cells copied and pasted to cells A40 A41 A42 A43
In Column C, I have a variable range (usually like, C5:C100000) that has data validation in it. However, only about 10% of the cells have a value from that data validation list in them (which is what I want). I'd like to write a macro that only cleared out the cells with no value in them, so that they no longer had any data validation in them. Is this possible?
I have several cells on a worksheet which contain data validation and force the user to select from a list, and several other cells with free user input. I want to use a macro to clear all data, and return the cells containing data validation to blank. (I have a blnak row at the top of all my lists, so there is a selection for "blank".)
I have no problem clearing the cells requiring user input, but my recorded macro would not select the cells with validation and return them to blank.
The first cell containing validation that I need to clear is M39. I have my code listed below for clearing the other cells. If I could get a clue on how to return M39 to blank, I could figure out the rest of the cells.
Attached is the spreadsheet I am working on, log sheet and example sheet. As you can see from the example sheet I have location, Equipment type, equipment id and some others. As you can see on the log sheet, at the moment people select the information from validated cells, but if they select Point Machine from the equipment type list they have to scroll through all the equipment IDís when they only really need to see 10 equipment IDís relating to Point Machines. Is there a way to get the validation cells to do this or is there another way. I am very very new to VBA if this is an alternate way to do this.
I have a list and set cells with a List Data Validation so you can choose them from a drop down menu. What i want to do is when you choose one of the option is the cell next to it come up with other option relating to the previous. E.G. I choose John Smith in cell A1 as a manager and in A2 a list of his team appears.
I want to prevent copying and pasting over cells with data validation as this means the validation is overwritten. To get around this I've selected all the cells with data validation and unlocked them, then protected the worksheet with all boxes ticked apart from format cells, columns and rows.
This prevents copy/pasting from overwriting data validation but it doesn't prevent data being pasted in that doesn't meet the validation criteria.
So for example, say -1 is in cell A1, with no data validation. In B1 there is data validation, which doesn't allow negative numbers to be entered. If I copy and paste A1 into B1, the data validation isn't overwritten, but it doesn't stop the non validated data (-1) from being entered! If I then double click on B1 and press enter it recognises the validation criteria is not met.
