Userform Control Blink
This code works fine on a normal userform But I declared the userform with "New" in my calling procedure

How To Have A Message Pop Up And Blink For A Few Seconds Then Go Away
With all the formulas working (or at least through testing so far they are), I am now in the make the worksheets fancy mode.
I want to have a message pop up when the leader of the meet changes. I would love it if it would blink for a few seconds to alert the individuals looking at the worksheet but then it would disapear so as not to be annoying.
In event 1, team a is first, and team b is second.
Event 2 finishes, and I post the results in the spreadsheet.
In event 2, team b takes over the lead and team a is now second Place.
I wold like a message to appear (for a few seconds) saying (and blinking something like "Team A, Just Took Over 1st Place!" and then goes away.
Counting Highlighted Rows ...

Unable To Get The Highlighted Section To Work
I am editing a Macro from a guy that has left my work and I am unable to get the Highlighted Section to work. In Section 'Paste Values & Formats it appears to work fine until it get down to Selection.PasteSpecial.Paste = x1PasteValuesAndNumberFormats and it throws you out. Is this because the Macro is generating a new workbook….?
In regards to the other sections; I am unsure if it does or does not work because every time I go down to it in Debug mode it highlights it as an error…

Counting Blocks Of Highlighted Cells
I have huge sheet with time periods across the top and accounts listed down. I have manually shaded cells red that represent "new" sales. I have used the custom function "colorfunction" to count these red shaded cells in the past. Now, I am trying to count blocks of cells. Each block is a different # of cells and represents sales $ over a different period of months. I want excel to count each block (start to end) ans add them up... I can SEND THE SHEET IF YOU WISH....

Row Highlighted When A Condition Is Met
I want to highlight the row when a condition is met. As by using conditional formating only a single cell will be highlighted.
in the attached file,
I had used the condition in column H, when cell contains "BLI" the cell will be highlighted in Green, but I want to highlight the complete row with green color wherever Column H contains "BLI"
[User Forms] Check Box Is Highlighted?
My problem is trivial but annoying. When I initiate my user form, one of the check boxes has a dashed border around the outside as if it was selected. No matter what I try, I cannot get the form to initialize without effecting this box. If I delete the box and recreate it, another box simply inherits this problem.
I have attached the spreadsheet, please Click the button over "A1" to see what I mean if you have the time.
Summarize The Red Highlighted Parts Of The Code
I have the following code used to fill a listbox control .. and I added some conditions to the code in order to give special authorities to specific users depending on their position and unit? Authority, UserPositon and UserUnit are functions give the user's position, unit and his authority. Can we summarize the red highlighted parts of the code because I am going to use these parts in many other forms of my project?
Conditonal Formatting Formulas: Value Between 90% And 94% Will Be Highlighted In Orange
In the attached spreadsheet you can see I have a chart with three columns. In the third column, I've inserted a conditional formatting formula so that any value between 90% and 94% will be highlighted in orange. What I'd like to do, based on the results in the third column which I've already formatted, is have the other two columns in the same rows highlighted in orange as well. For instance, you see that the 92.30% is highlighted in the third column because it is a value between 90% and 94% per my formula. When that is true, I would also like the 56.02% and the $4,100 (the two cells to its left) highlighted in the same color. I'm not sure how to accomplish this.
Highlighted Description Whilst Hovering Over Lists
As part of a working spreadsheet there is a section which records faults by way of a numerical list in a dropdown menu. When a number is chosen the fault description appears in the adjacent cell. Is it possible when the mouse hovers over a number in the list the first 20 characters of the fault description could be shown before the fault number is chosen? The attached file is a simple example of the fault numbers and descriptions, in reality some of the faults have longer descriptions with more technical detail.
Make A Cell Look For Another Cell Value Then Call Up A Drop Down
Is there a way to create a multiple dropdown (Similar to Windows Start menu) so that the user can select the item and its properties then the selections be placed into multiple cells? For example, i select wood from drop down list and i get another drop down list asking for the type of wood, I select MDF and another drop down ask for thickness. when I finished my selections, then the selected Items copy themselves into 3 different cells.
I have a drop down in (A1) cell and I select an item from it. I want (A2) cell to check the name in (A1) then call up another drop down i already made in (A2).
Trying To Use Vba Code To Evaluate Each Row In A Highlighted Selection
I have a worksheet (with if statements) that I throw numbers from a report into and it uses those if statements to calculate the number of items and money earned. The problem is that sometimes employees use different key words for their items so the formulas dont pick them up and this skews their results for the month. Also it's hard to see where someone messed so I'm trying to write a code that reads each row for a given selection and calculates the sum and if that sum is 0 then we can look for where the employee made an error. This is what I have:
Dim RngToSum As Range
Set RngToSum = Selection.Rows
For Each Row In RngToSum
If Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(RngToSum) = "0" Then
MsgBox "Lets play find the error"
Selection.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 'red
Else Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(RngToSum) 0 Then
MsgBox "Congrats there's no errors"
The problem with the code is that I want it to read every line and if there's no errors then have it say "congrats no errors" after ALL rows have been checked because right now it pulls a msgbox per row and I don't want to go through hundreds of no error msgboxes. However, if even just one line has an error then have a msgbox come up.
Also there's something weird where this code wont pick up an error for a row if i highlight two rows (one row without an error and one with) but if i highlight just rows of zeros then it'll pick it up.
Deficit Cells Highlighted In Red If The Deposits Are Less Than The Expenses.
****** http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">****** name="ProgId" content="Word.Document">****** name="Generator" content="Microsoft Word 12">****** name="Originator" content="Microsoft Word 12"> Deposits
I want the Surplus/Deficit cells Highlighted in red if the Deposits are less than the expenses.
Can I this? Maybe using a macro or formula not entirely sure
If so how?
I would like to be able to this myself but could not figure it out using conditional formatting in Office 2007.
Make A Cell Value = The Furthest Value To The Right
How do I make a cell value update to equal the furthest value to the right in the same row?
This cell just needs to look along the right in its own row and grab the value furthest away to the right. It will be a letter value, not a number. eg, AB or AC or AD or AE. It will not (in this case) need to look further than about 150 columns or cells.
If/then To Make Cell Blank
I am using a “borrowed” formula from a coworker that I do not really understand however it is working for me, sort of.
=+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V17,$W17,$X17,$Y17,$Z17,$AB17,$AC17,$AD17,$AO17,$AZ17)))),I F(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="FFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *")
What this does is read the range of cells and immediately fails a quality check if it is in a critical cell, or fails if multiple non critical items fail.
I want to use an if/then to make cell blank if there is no data in one particular cell (which means no quality inspection performed). Here is what I tried:
IF(V18="","",+IF(ISERROR(FIND("F",UPPER(CONCATENATE($V18,$W18,$X18,$Y18,$Z18,$AB18,$AC18,$AD18,$AO18 ,$AZ18)))),IF(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER($R$2),"NA",""),"FAIL",""),"PASS",""),4)="F FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF","FAIL","PASS"),"FAIL *"))
The leaving the cell blank part of the formula works however it allows the remainder of the formula to only work if “fail” appears in the first cell it reads (in this case V18). If the “fail” appears in any of the other critical cells, it does not work at all.
Also as a side project not sure what the substituting to $R$2 does so if anyone knows how to clean this up, let me know.
How To Make Cell Read Only

WITHOUT protecting the sheet?

Userform: Delete All Content Through Double Click But Not The Highlighted Line
I have a worksheet in whichs Column A Cells , there is corresponding string content in Col. Z. Some cells of column Z contain of many lines (up to 100 line) which i want to reduce to one. I want to select one line through double clicking in the listbox of the userform and all other lines should be deleted and only the clicked one should remain. Code should then jump to the next non empty Z cell.
Columns B, C, D, E, F, G and H should also be shown in the userform and they should be live editable. I have attached and example file with userform and example data.
Advanced Goal Seek: Two Cells Missing Highlighted In Blue
I have the total sales for a company. Then I have four specific segments that fall under those sales. Two out of the four segments I have exact sales figures for. The other two segments I just have the year-end sales and the dollar increase in each quarter. Is there a way to solve in excel for the missing quarters. So each of the four segments would have to add up to the total sales for both the quarter and the year. I've attached my example spreadsheet too. There are two cells missing highlighted in blue but i'm going to try to obtain that data. provided i fill in those two blanks, is there way to back into the rest of this spreadsheet?
How Do I Make It Hide The Row Not The Cell

If Not varFind Is Nothing Then Range(varFind.Address) = Hidden
Then Range(varFind.Address) = Range(varFind.Address).row.Hidden
Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero
I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.
This is the formula I have at the moment:
A B C
Make Cell Apear Blank

Can I Make A Formula That Will Highlight A Cell
I have a large spreadsheet with many pieces of equipment in it. There are a few piece that I would like to highlight should thier computer license go out of date, or even better 30 days prior. I have a Feild with the Expire dates but it is at the end of the spreadsheet not in plain sight. Is there a way to make my Equipment description column highlight when the date in the other column reaches the current date (or 30 Days before). I have cut and pasted the part of the spreadsheet into a new file to make it easier to read and hid all the none important feilds.
Make Vlookup Move On From An Empty Cell?
I am making a spreadsheet that tracks children's progress in school through the year.
I have a vlookup that turns their levels (2c,2b,2a,3c,3b,3a etc) into numbers so that the number of sublevels they have progressed during the year can be reported.
However, when children join through the year, they will not have data to go in the 'starting grade' box, so I was wondering if it would be possible to make vlookup see that cell E5 is empty, and so look in cell F5 instead. It might even, perhaps, have to look in cell G5 if they join the class after Christmas.
