i have managed to pull together some code that will deny people adding data into cells if they have 5 of the same entry. the entries are entered in a range and are matched against a single cell outside of the range. heres the
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) Dim greycell As Range, i As Long If Not Intersect(Target, Me.[grey]) Is Nothing Then Application.EnableEvents = False For Each greycell In Target If WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Me.[grey], greycell.Value) > 5 Then i = greycell.Interior.ColorIndex greycell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 'red greycell.Select MsgBox "no cell entry past 5", vbCritical, "ERROR" greycell.ClearContents: greycell.Interior.ColorIndex = i End If Next Application.EnableEvents = True End If End Sub
what i need with is adapting this code to match two ranges as i cant use the worksheet_change event twice. i need it to be as if they were seperate events but are merged together. eg:.............
i'm sure this can be done but i cant get an angle on the method. i want to use VBA to put a formula into cell G3 based on the users entry in cell D3 so, for example the user enters M in cell D3 and the VBA code puts the formula "if D3="M",A3,0"into cell G3
i know i could use a formula in the cell but i want it to work with multiple entries so i figure VBA is the way to go.
Trying to write a formula that looks for the first number in the same row, then returns the value in that column in a different row. In the example included, cell A-7 should contain the formula. Within row 7, determine the column where the first number is listed (column D in this case), then return the value listed in row 3 of that column ('C' in this case).
I've tried Lookup, Index, and Match functions, but can't seem to get the right combination.
i'm trying to get a column to count all blanks but only if there's and entry in the cell to the left. for example i have a list of names which is picked up from my main database in column a, then in column b there's dates, non applicables and blanks. however the columns are longer than the list of names to allow for growth, so there's a lot of blanks at the bottom which i don't want to count. so is there a way to count only the blanks in column b if there's a name in column a alongside it
I have a workbook containing two worksheets - Sheet 1 being my "data entry sheet" and Sheet 2 is a sort of summary report containing multiple named ranges (all grouped according to similar values in a cell i.e. all cells containing 1-1 is named GRP1, all cells containig 1-2 is named GRP2). Basically, my workbook looks like this:
Sheet 1 A B C D 1 Lea Female 1-1 Lea Wells 2 Leo Male 1-2 Leo Anderson
Sheet 2 A B C D 1 Anne Thomas Female 1-1 2 John Doe Male 1-1
4 Jimmy Beads Male 1-2 5 Mary Fox Female 1-2
Hence, when I enter the data as shown in Sheet 1, Sheet 2 should look like this:
A B C D 1 Anne Thomas Female 1-1 2 John Doe Male 1-1 3 Lea Wells Female 1-1
4 Jimmy Beads Male 1-2 5 Mary Fox Female 1-2 6 Leo Anderson Male 1-2
I have a cell set up with a formula to copy the content from another cell. However, the cell won't expand to fit the text. If you delete the formula and just type in the cell, it does expand. See attachment.
I have a cell with a formula in it. I want to use conditional formatting on this cell if the formula result leaves it blank. Given the formula is in the cell it's never recognised as blank. If an entry is input instead the formula then obviously I don't want the conditional formatting.
What formula can I use in the conditional formatting for it to recognise the Cell formula as blank?
I have a sheet that I fill out with customer data then print and start over with the next customer. This requires me to tab and delete through the sheet before starting the next entry and I am wondering if there is some way to auto clear the unlocked cells based on a single entry IE when we entered new data in the 1st field this would clear the unlocked cells and make them ready for new data?
I am trying to do with data validation, trying to stay away from vba on this... and it is probably very simple:
Cell A1, they can select Rice, Cheese, or Rabbit I want to use custom data validation on B1, so that if A1 = Rabbit, they can only enter 1. If it is blank or the other two choices, they can enter 1 through 10.
Can I do that with data validation? I can't get any if thens to work in it.
I have a cell with data such as: a0001-0004, a12, C8AF7-8, b17, j35-40 and i want it to output in the same cell(basically write-over the data): a0001, a0002, a0003, a0004, a12, C8AF7,C8AF8, b17, j35, j36, j37, j38, j39, j40.
dont know if this can be done using a formula rather than VBA...but is there a formula that would change the countif range based on another cell entry. so the formula below has a column range of 2...so the other cell entry would be '2'.
=COUNTIF(B1:C1,"=Y"). If i then changed the cell entry to '4' the formula would change to. =COUNTIF(B1:E1,"=Y")
I will try putting the Code Tags in correct this time, I think I figured out what I have been doing wrong.
This code will allow one cell to make a sound when a condition is met. I am trying to have each cell stand on its own. Example cell A1 would sound a Ding if the number >100 and cell A2 would sound a Tada if the word Cat would be returned ....
The 'gist' of what I need is for events scheduled (top of spreadsheet), no school can be placed into an event within 29 minutes (because one-half hour apart IS ok). The time increments are on the left side of the spreadsheet (rows). I'm trying to "automate" somehow so that if we try to plug a school into an event too soon from their last event, the spreadsheet won't allow it.
I would like to write the code or create a macro that will execute when the value of a range of cells is greater than null. The macro or code that I would like to execute will UNHIDE a group of consecutive rows.
I have a workbook with 3 worksheets which contains a single spreadsheet where the user enters data and 2 worksheets containing all the named ranges and formulas(divided up by product model) used on the data entry worksheet. What I've been trying to accomplish is to choose one worksheet based on which product model I select on the data sheet.
I need to force our salespeople to enter information in a cell based on a condition. This is the condition: If I5=3, then I need to move the user to cell I3 with a message that says "Enter miles to site" -- I don't want them to be able to move from the cell until they enter the information. If I5 does not equal 3, then I don't need anything to occur. I need to apply this code to four separate worksheets in the same workbook. Also, they will be entering a number in cell I3, so is okay to leave I3 formatted for Number or General Number? Note: This question is also posted at the following link, but has not yet been answered by that group: http://database.ittoolbox.com/groups...dition-2270643.
Here's a tricky one. The chart that shows the four columns are on sheet 1. I need a formula or a VLOOK array that will fill in the 2 columns with the 3 rows shown on the left which will be on a sheet 2. Lets say that all start with A1 in both sheets. The tricky part is, i want sheet 1 to be able to populate onto sheet 2 starting with the Name column first row no matter what name i select on sheet 1. Say that Janie earned money, but Mark didn't. I enter Janies info in Money saved & Money Earned. I get her total, and the end result should be her name showing on sheet 2 in the first row under name and her total showing on the first row in the total column. Also, i would need it to bump one up or dowm to the next adjacent column if i were to go beyond the 3 rows in the 1st set on rows in sheet 2. Say Janie, Rob and Cyndi all had info, but now Mark does, i want to be able to push the others down one and over onto the next set of columns.
I'm trying to set a cell so that it has a certain value based on other cell(s) information. I can put a formula into the cell to do that, but I also want to make the cell available for user input, preserving the formula should the user change their mind and delete their input.
Basically, it's a cell with a protected formula that can be overridden with user input, then if the user decides to take their input back out, the formula kicks back in.
