Format Cell To Always Insert Specific Thing When Specific Name Is Typed?

Apr 4, 2013

Is there a way to format cells to where - when you type in a certain person's first name, it will insert something entirely different?

This has seemed to have happened on a computer at work.

In Excel, when I type in "Martha" then tab, or otherwise leave that cell, Martha changes to "Cool"

If I type in anyone elses name - it stays that name. But if I type in "Martha" .. it changes to "Cool" with the bullet and the word Cool.

Set Date Format For Specific Cell In VBA

Jan 26, 2012

What I have done is create a macro in Excel and then opened up the VBA editor to make a lot of changes to the initial macro. I am reformatting a whole lot of separate spreadsheets over many workbooks.

Here is the code that is generating the error (Run-Time error '438', Object doesn't support this property or method):

Selection.Format = "long date"
With Selection
.Font.Size = 11
' .Format = LongDate
.HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
.VerticalAlignment = xlCenter
End With

As you can see, I first tried the ".Format = LongDate" and did put LongDate in "" which did not work, then I tried the "Selection.Format = ..." after the "Range" statement, and that did not work either. So you will actually know, I am trying to set the format for the cell "E2" to a Long Date format.

Insert Cell Contents From One Column Into Another Based On Specific Part?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with four columns of text.

In column A, i have multiple levels followed by a letter (i.e. Level 1A, Level 1B etc).

In column B, i have some other details and then so on and so forth.

In column C/E/G lets say, i want to copy the information from column A to show only items that appear as "Level 1" (not "Level 1A", i only want it to check for things without the letter at the end). Then the same in column E but with "Level 2" and so on and so forth.

Column A...Column B-Column C...Column D--Column E...Column F--Column G...Column H
Level 1A....Metals----Level 1A....Metals ---Level 2A....Integral---Level 3A....Television
Level 1B....Energy----Level 1B....Energy--- Level 2B....Flowers---Level 3B....Kitchen
Level 1C....Synergy---Level 1C...Synergy--Level 2C....Full
Level 2A....Integral---Level 1D....Orders
Level 2B....Flowers
Level 1D....Orders
Level 3A....Television
Level 3B....Kitchen
Level 2C....Full

I also have data in Column B that is to do with column A (i.e "Level 1A" - "Metals") and so on with the following columns. I want the items that are in column B to also move over to column D when the things from Column A move to Column C, so at the end it will appear as below so it appears as above.

Macro To Copy Specific Cells From Row From Source & Stop When Next Row Cell = Specific Value

Nov 7, 2008

I have a protected template and unprotected source worksheets - - - what I would like to happen is for the macro to start and if the source worksheet cell B3 equals "Report Total" then stop - otherwise copy template worksheet then copy 6 specific cells from the source to paste values to specific cells on the newly created worksheet (B_ to C7, D_ to I7, E_ to C9, F_ to K9, A_ to C11, M_ to K11 and then K13=F13-30)

After that then start all over again unless the next row’s cell (B4, B5, B6, . . .) is "Report Total" then stop - - - the row count could be from one to a couple hundred.

Here is what I have so far but I know that with each copy the name will change and as it goes down the source file each row will change and I also need help with that.

Sheets("ee template").Copy After:=Sheets(3)
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -11).Range("A1").Select

Entering Specific Text Into Cell Based On Its Format

Apr 13, 2013

I'm trying to make a schedule for some of my employees (300 to be exact) and I was trying to work out a way of speeding things up a bit. I've made plenty of pretty complex equations for working with the task but the solution for what I would like to do now alludes me.

Here's the challenge: I have a sheet where I would like to insert employees within row 4 and then have their shifts shown visually in the column below that, and have the hours they work put into a merged cell (or something similar), like what can be seen in the blue cell under "Employee 1" (C6). What I would like to do is just have something like a VBA detect that a series of cells is merged (red cells) and insert the corresponding time, located within B5:B33, into that cell (with same format as the blue cell). Also, above the employee's name I could put a button to run something like a macro to run the program for the corresponding employee directly under that button.

Essentially I want to merge a series of cells, hit a button, and have excel locate and input the correct times within that merged cell.

Conditional Number Format Based On The Value Of A Specific Cell

May 9, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet which includes many rows whose number format needs to change depending on the value of a specific cell.

So for example:

If cell B20 has value "A", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 1,234
If cell B20 has value "B", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 5.6%
If cell B20 has value "C", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 7.89

As conditional formatting does not seem to include a number format option I've worked out that I need some sort of macro to change these settings for me, either automatically whenever the value of B20 changes or, more likely, when I manually choose to run the macro.

Automatically Format Range Based On Specific Cell

Aug 19, 2008

I am looking for VB code that will format a range of cells from a number format to a percentage format based on a reference cell. The reference cell is a drop down created from a list validation.

For example: If the reference cell (cell A1) =1 then cell range B2:C4 would be a number format. If A1 = 2 then cell range B2:C4 would be a percentage format.

I have searched for hours trying to find a relevant thread; I know they are out there, maybe I just wasn't typing in the correct search words.

Minus Number From Cell And Result In Specific Cell And Specific Column

Jan 20, 2009

I have number in cell (A1) = 100. when I enter number in any cell of column(B) for example (B1)=10. then in cell (C1) the result of (A1) - (B1) = (90) and if I add in cell (B2)=10 then in cell (C1) the result of (A1) - (B1+B2) = 80 .accumulatively in cell (C1). and any number in column (B), the result will be (A1) minus any number in column(B) accumulated in (C1)

second question

I have number in cell (A1) = 100. when I enter number at cell (B1) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C1) = (A1) - ( B1) = 90 and If I enter a new number in cell (B2) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C2) = (A1) - (B1+B2) = 80 and If I enter a new number in cell (B3) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C3) = (A1) - (B1+B2+B3) = 70 and so on. I want the result to be add automatically to adjacent cell in column (C)

Specific Cell To Run A Specific Formula

Aug 14, 2009

let say in cell A6 i have a list


I can pick one of these. If i pick Cash then i want a specific cell to run a specific formula. depending on the item chosen.

So in cell A6 is the list.

in cell B6 an amount will be place and in C6 another amount will be place. the number for c6 will range from a -number to a +number.

But D6 looks to see if B6 meet the requirements for MTT, SnG or Cash depending on which item was selected from the list. and uses the formula below with $c$3 changing from to either $D$3 or $F$3 and comparing the values for the chosen item. the formula changes would look this

=IF(ISBLANK(C6),IF(B6>$C$3,"Do Not Play","PLAY"),IF(C6<B6, "Lost","Win"))

=IF(ISBLANK(C6),IF(B6>$D$3,"Do Not Play","PLAY"),IF(C6<B6, "Lost","Win"))

=IF(ISBLANK(C6),IF(B6>$F$3,"Do Not Play","PLAY"),IF(C6<B6, "Lost","Win"))

VBA To Insert Row After Specific Row?

May 30, 2014

I currently have a protected worksheet which prevents the user from inserting row.

User however will be able to add a new row via Userform.

I was able to add a new row by this method, but for only after the active(selected) cell.


However, in the user form, i have a textbox1 and the value of the texetbox1 will dictate where the new row should be created. So for ex, if textbox1 = 10, the new row should be created after row 10 thus becoming row 11.

So i tried the following code and am having no luck at all...

[Code] ....

As a secondary question, after the new row is created, is there any way to populate the cells in the newly created row with values from the texboxes from the same userform?

So for ex, textbox2 = "This is Document" then C11 should read This is Document
