Dynamic Range Name Creation

Feb 8, 2009

I'm needing some code that will program-magically do the following interactive stuff:

1. Go to the first cell that will be the start of my range, say "D1".

2. While holding down the "shift" key, press "end", then "down". All of the desired cells will then have been selected. [side note: how can I detect that the "d2" cell is not blank - I don't really want 65K cells in my range?]

3. Next, "Insert", "Name", "Define", then typein the desired name range ("schoolList", here) and press enter.

This would seem to be a case for using the macro recorder but the range will always come out hard-coded, rather than the cells that would be selected using an "end" "down" selection.

Creation Of Dynamic Checkboxes

Jun 3, 2013

I have a UserForm with a CommandButton; when I click on it a function creating dynamic checkboxes on another UserForm is implemented and then this second UserForm is displayed (and the dynamic checkboxes are displayed too).

Private Sub cmd_BUTTON_Click()
If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to add Dynamic CheckBoxes?", vbQuestion + vbOKCancel, "") = vbOK Then
UserForm2.Caption = "DYNAMIC CHECKBOXES"
End If
End Sub

Sub Create_DynamicCheckboxes()
Dim CheckBoxTop As Integer
CheckBoxTop = 75
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To 10
Set theCheckBox_ID = UserForm2.Controls.Add("Forms.CheckBox.1")

[Code] .........

Everything work fine!!!

Now I have the UserForm2 displayed that include 10 CheckBoxes, which names should be:


Why the following code doesn't work???

Private Sub chk_1_Click()
End Sub

Circulating Error On Creation Of Dynamic Validation List

Aug 13, 2014

I've converted to a dynamic validation list which allows for a selection of data to be made available based on the selection of the two previous columns.

Unfortunately since creating the new validation a circulating error occurs when tabbing through the table (B) to create a new line or entry? Additionally I've found the following to occur also;

1. The payments and PO# columns converts a red shade colour?

2. The validation on Table B description column do not work while in excel online edit mode?

Excel 2010 :: Dynamic Graph Creation Using The Series And Offset Functions?

Jan 7, 2014

I am in the process of setting up some graphs. The graphs will show the last 6 months of data so they move as each month is goes. I saw a slick way of doing this using the count function but this did not quite fulfill my needs. What I was looking for is to be able to input the start month in a cell. The cell would be part of the function within the formula. I created a simplified version of the spreadsheet below.


Then I created my names using the ctrl-F3


I then created the graph I wanted and wanted to use the formula =SERIES(Sheet1!$B$3,!chtCat,!chtIssuesReported,1). This kept getting an error indicated nothing really. It basically says there is something wrong with my Series function. I have a working version of a similiar worksheet I have been basing my entries on. They look almost identical but mine is failing. I also created a new file and tried this and it still fails. I can run the formula evaluator within Excel 2010 against the !chtCat and !chtIssuesReported names and they both return the correct value (which equals areas on the spreadsheet). I have also tried to enter the spreadsheet name and a tab in front of the names to get them to work and still get an error. Basicall I am trying to create the graph below (this grpah is using the hard coded locations)

Convert Dynamic Range To Static Named Range

Sep 13, 2007

My searches have not produced anything that I could apply to this situation.

I'm trying to write VBA that would:

1. Search a Workbook for Dynamic Ranges.

2. When a Dynamic Range is found the code would:

A. Determine the current coordinates for the range.
B. Change the "Refers To" value From "=OFFSET...." To "=Worksheet_Name $Column$Row:$Column$Row"

3. Save Changes.

4. Close File.

My apologies but I have very little experience in writing VBA. I understand about variables, arguments, and IF/THEN but just enough to use functions within Excel.

Dynamic Range 2003: Run Calculations On This Range

Nov 5, 2009

I have a range of data that will grow as the days of the month pass but I need to run calculations on this range. The data is 13 columns wide but the number of rows will increase daily. I remember using a formula in the Define Range that would automatically take into account new additions using the OFFSET function but cannot for the life of me think how exactly to do it.

Set Range Variable To Growing Dynamic Range

Mar 6, 2008

I have been working on part of the code for my spreadsheet and it works fine in the spreadsheet “Databaseform” however when I copied the code to my master spreadsheet “Paul_PartLocDBCombo” it does not work, I get the error:

Method ‘ range’ of object ‘_worksheet’ failed
The code is then highlighted in yellow, the code is:
Set rng = wksPartsData.Range("a1", Range("a65536").End(xlUp))

Meaning this part is incorrect but I don’t know why? To work it: go to Databaseform and press start. Enter 7mm in the product field and press find all. It will then return all the matching results in the userform. Its this I want to try and achieve on the other spreadsheet when the button find label is pressed.

Add-in Menu Creation

Jul 19, 2007

I am wanting to make a macro into an add-in. An add-in is basically a workbook with macros that is opened when excel is correct? I know how to create an additional menu item under an existing one, but I'm wanting to create my own menu with this add-in item under it. I've used this code to try and create the new menu and placed it in the workbook open:

HelpIndex = CommandBars(1).Controls("Help").Index
Set NewMenu = CommandBars(1).Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlPopup, Before:=HelpIndex, Temporary:=True)
NewMenu.Caption = "&Separate Cashiers"

But ran into an error on the first line of code. I saved the workbook with the add-in macro in it as an .xla and used the addins under tools to have it open each time.

Random List Creation

Jun 28, 2006

This might be a little complex to understand but I am going to try to make it clear as to what I am in need of. Basically I have a larger macro that runs and I need to add a pop up that asks for a percentage to be put into a new sheet. The percent is the percent of random rows on the current sheet to be put into a new sheet. Then it would have to create the new sheet with the random information. This is for a audit and we want to have it done randomly and no duplicates. There are no duplicates in the list at this point. The width if needed is from column A to column E.

Custom Toolbar Creation

Jan 11, 2007

I'm preparing a model which has a few macros built-in. Let's call them Macro A, B, C etc. I want to trigger them via buttons on a custom toolbar (no problem) which a recipient of the model, on another PC, will be able to see (problem).

It was suggested to me that in Customize mode I can right click the custom toolbar and then click "Attach..." but this always causes Excel (2002) to freeze; I must then close Excel.

Someone else suggested that a better way is to have VBA code create the toolbar "on the fly" automatically when a recipient opens the spreadsheet. This is too advanced for me to write at the moment. Could someone give me a steer?

Automatic Invoice Creation

Apr 7, 2008

I need a macro to copy the data from the rows in Sheet3 into a specific place on "Sheet2" (Column "C" to E10 on Sheet2, D to E11, Q to E12, R to M12, S to T12, G to Y26, H to AF29, M to AF30, N to AF32, and lastly the current date to AC10) then rename the sheet to the Value of "E10" on that sheet then Copy that sheet to a new workbook and then clear the data on "Sheet2" so that only the information that was on the sheet before the data transfer is left and reset the name back to the original. My problem is i'm going to need this macro to do this for every row of data (Customer) that is in my list range of B10:R2114. So i'm looking for maybe a macro that loops an amount of times equal to the counts of data in the address range


I have a macro that Creates a new workbook (which you name and place, which is good) and then copies a specified sheet over to the new workbook. I hope I wasn't to convoluted in what I'm trying to accomplish. heres the current macro I'm working with.

Sub copySht()
'declare the variables
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim fName
With Application
'prevent unnecessary error messages
.DisplayAlerts = False
'switch off screen updating to speed up code and prevent screen flickering

Sum Dynamic Range

Jul 15, 2007

I wonder if there is a way to Sum the total of a Dynamic Range so that the summary will be presented in the upper Cell of the summed column?

(please see the attached picture).

The reason is to anable FREEZING of the first row (display the totals all the time even when scrolling down) as the list will get very long after a while.
