Reference Cells Keeping Columns The Same But Change Row Number Based On User Input

Dec 10, 2012

Date
#
Lname
Fname

[Code].....

With that said, I want to put the row number of a user in (I have a few thousand on this spreadsheet, and all the = data be automatically pulled based on the row number I put in cell B1. So I'm hoping to write in cell B1 the following - "143" (without the quotes), and the remaining cells in column B automatically pull that data based on that, so it would look like the following

Row #
143
Name:
=C143&" , "&D143&" "&E143

[Code]....

How do I write the functions to keep the columns the same, but change the row number based on the number I input?

Clearing A Variable Of User Defined Type

Nov 3, 2004

I am currently working in an application in which I use the following user defined types:

Public Type correlationstruct
corr As Variant
corrstd As Variant
lower As Variant
upper As Variant
support As Variant
End Type

I have a public variable called myctafund, of type ctafund:

Public myctafund As ctafund

My problem is the following: When I need to update myctafund, I first want to clean it entirely before putting new values, so as to be sure older values do not stick around (I do not necessarily overwrite all the values of the mycta type).I can't figure out a way of clearing the entire myctafund variable in one shot. I tried:

myctafund=empty

but I am granted by a nasty excel error. I'd like to avoid writing 200 lines of code just to clean the entire variable.

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

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.)

Variable Type Changing Number Of Decimal Places

May 14, 2014

Here's what I'm doing: I'm using a macro to assign a cell value to a variable then set another cell value to the variable instead of copy/paste (because even pasting values only was affecting other formulas in the file for some reason)

The problem: in using the macro, the number being 'copied' is acquiring a few extra decimal places IE 38334.61 is the original number and 38334.609375 is what I end up with. The numbers come from a CSV with only 2 decimal places and I checked by adding decimal places in the format so it's not a formatting/visible digits issue. Since the values are hour meter readings, the extra decimal places end up with very small values outside 0-24 hrs which messes with sorting and usage %. The values are so small all of them together in a month add up to a fraction of a cent but it's one of those things that bugs my OCD by not being right.

My VBA book explains the min/max capabilities, content type, memory bits but not fiddly details like this.

So my question is this: right now I'm declaring the clipboard-substitue variable as an single, is there a different one that would work better without adding anything? Criteria are: numeric, 6 digits before the decimal, 2 after, all positive values. (Ie 123456.12)

EDIT: fixed my senior moment.

Change User Input Values Depanding On Option Buttons

Oct 8, 2008

I have set up an option frame with two options. If I click on option A it shows below a frame with txtLenght and txtWidth.

If I use option button B it shows me on the same spot a different frame with txtSQM. I need that so I could either enter the length and width to get the sqm or I do already have the sqm value.

When I set up the code I would like to use an input message saying "Enter Lenght & Width" but if I use the other option it would need to say. "Enter the sqm value".

How or what code do I need to enter to be able to seperate those two from each other.

But also it is important that it does only calculate either the value in sqm or the values from length and width.

Create A Cell That Allows The User To Input A Number

Jul 30, 2009

I am working on a spreadsheet and would like to create a cell that allows the user to input a number (1 to 5) which will then equate to a percentage(%). I would then like this to deduct that percentage from a total number...

To try and explain this.. Should the user input 1 into the cell, this would then equate to 3% - this would then deduct from a total that percentage. Input 2 = 5% etc..

Change Current Cell Value If Number String NOT Letter String?

Apr 7, 2014

In sheet1 I have a simple database consisting of 5 columns of data

Column A : Name ie James Jones
Column B : payroll number ie 123456
Column C : shift times ie 1245-2124
Column D : job title ie floor
Column E : comments ie A/L or 0600-1500

what I would like is some code that will go down Column E and if a 'time string' ie 1300-2130 is found then copy this string and paste into corresponding value in column C. If a text string is found ie A/L or Sick or anything like this then ignore and move onto next cell, loop this until all cells in column E have been checked.

Insert Number Of Rows Based On User Input

Apr 23, 2014

I have an excel sheet that I've automated for my shop ... Basically it copies a set of rows from one sheet, asks for which cell you want to start the paste at, then pastes it... Here's what I have so far:

[Code] .....

So I tried to use a variation of strReturn to indicate number of rows wanted but that didn't work ... Basically I'm going to create the "data" to include 50 rows, but have it selectable for the user to say they only want 5, 7 or 29 rows ...

Pass Element Of User-Defined Data Type

Oct 17, 2007

I have an array with structure, i.e. User Defined Type. Assume the user defined type has two elements: Element1 and Element2 and array name is Array.

So the definition is:

Dim Array(1 To 10) As UserType

and access to elements is

Array(5).Element1

The problem is that I need to pass the whole set of Element1 or Element2 to a function. Should it have been two separate arrays, it would not be a problem. But because of the user defined structure I have no idea how to pass a single element.

I hope there is another solution rather than to use loops. I have many arrays like this with complex structures. I simply can not replicate all of them.

VBA / Match String Or Long Data Type

Nov 5, 2012

I'm trying to use application.match() but I'm running into a issue where I don't know if I'll be matching a string or long data type...

Here's the snippet of code:

Code:
' UNIT DATA
' Set Unit#
s1 = ActiveSheet.Pictures(Application.Caller).Name
iLen = Len(s1)
s1 = Mid(s1, 2, iLen - 2)
' Set Sel Ex Work Date
iCheck = Application.Match("MACHINE_NUMBER", Sheets("Allocation").Columns(1), 0)

[code]....

How can I get application.match to look for strings if s1 = "ABC123" or numbers if s1 = "123456"

I've tried dim variant and s1 + 0... But, haven't come up with a solution.

Custom Function With Variable Number Of Input Parameters?

May 10, 2013

how to create a custom function with an unknown/changing number of input parameters?

Specifically, I need to create a function that will calculate the average of 1,2 or more ranges. I can't use the built-in average function as I then need to use the average in my function.

what I have so far is:

function points(current as range, previous as range)
if previous > current then final=1
if previous < current then final=0
if previous = current then final=2
points=final
end function

This works okay if I only only have 1 range of values. but in my worksheet I need to be able to enter =points(a1,c1:f1,g1) and have the function calculate the average of c1:f1,g1 and compare it to a1.

Clear Data Depending On User Input And Move Cells Forward Without Deleting Data Table

Oct 25, 2012

I have an month input in cells B2 (user can enter values from 1-5)

I then have a data table that has month 1,2,3,4,5 running across range G9:K9. the data is held in range G10:K19.

So if user types in 4 in B2, what should happen is that months 1,2,3 and 4 the data for these months should be cleared and data in month 5 moves forward into month 1.

So basically, anything left of the month entered is B2 should be cleared and replaced with anything right of the month in B2.

1
2
3
4
5

£11
£133
£29
£193
£100

Extracting Number Of Seconds From Variable Text String?

Oct 2, 2011

I have a column of cells, each with a with text string that has three possible formats where I want to extract the total number of seconds.

The three formats are:

nnn hrs nn min nn sec (example: 1 hrs 42 min 58 sec)
or
nn min nn sec (example: 55 min 1 sec)
or
nn sec (example: 10 sec)

The result I want is a numeric value of the total number of seconds in the text string.

For example a text string of: 1 hrs 42 min 58 sec

Should give the result: (1 x 3600) + (42 x 60) + 58 = 6,178

Extract Number Of Variable Length From Text String

Imagine that I have this list of thousands of customers, who are listed in column B in the format "customer no+space+customer name".

Now I want to extract ONLY the customer no from the text string in column B and insert it as number value in column A on the same row.

Would have been easy with "Left" command, but as the customer numbers have variable length, I have a problem.

Copy Data From User Input Location

Mar 18, 2009

I'm using a worksheet as a surveying program. I need to be able to enter a cell reference in my "input cell", ie "=A11". Then in cell the the right of the input cell I need "=B11" to be entered. And in the cell to the right of that, I need "=C11", and to the right of the I need "=I11". I can get so far working with one cell at a time.

If I enter "=A11" in T3, in T4 I can enter: =IF(T3=A11,B11,IF(T3=A12,B12,IF(T3=A13,B13..and so on. But 8 conditions is all I can enter before I get a message saying that the formula uses more levels of nesting than are allowed in the current file format. And I need to be able to enter at least 50 conditions in 3 adjacent cells.

Archive Data Based On User's Input

Jun 14, 2006

I am trying to move (archive) data from one sheet to another sheet based on a date range provided by the users input. If the date on sheet list in the cells in range R9:R10000 fall within that date range the following takes place. The rows that meet the date range per the users input in the range of R9:R1000 are copied and just the values are pasted into the next empty row starting with row 7 on the report worksheet. The cells that are copied on the List worksheet are NOT deleted but the contents are cleared. The reason for this is because there are formulas/links in those cells.

I have attached a worksheet example and have some VBA code but it does not work.
