Copy Contents Of Multiple Comment Boxes And Paste In Single Comment Box

Mar 13, 2014

how to copy the contents of multiple comment boxes and paste in a single comment box.

The big picture is that I have a number of cells with numerical values in and text in comment boxes. I want to be able to click a button to copy the contents of the comment boxes and paste them, along with the numerical value from the cell, into a single comment box, ordered by highest to lowest value within the comment box, then delete the original cells and comments.

I am quite new to VBA but have been coping quite well so far with information of the web and analysing recorded macros.

Paste Copied Contents Of A Cell As A Comment In Another Cell

Sep 7, 2012

I am working on a database and trying to remove duplicates. When there are duplicates, I want to take the contents of one cell and copy them as a comment on the cell above (or below).

I tried to work on a small macro to do so, but the contents of the cell cannot be copied (it comes out as a blank).

The long way is to 'double click' in the cell, Ctrl+A, cut, click the cell above, Ctrl+F2, paste. This way is very long as I have thousands of duplicates.

Link Cell Contents Across Worksheets?

Feb 28, 2009

I work for an IT company who build their own PC's. And we use a simple Excel 2003 spreadsheet to piece-together and price-up PC's for retail, I've attached an example of the spreadsheet for you to see. It uses basic formulas so we can see at-a-glance things like VAT figures, margin, profit etc. Each PC we sell is contained within one Excel file, and each PC has it's own Workbook tab.

The problem I want to solve is whenever we change a component or price, we have to do each system manually, which gets very repetetive and time consuming. What I'd like to be able to do is change the price of, let's say, the motherboard, and have the price be reflected across each of the PC's using that same motherboard on each seperate tab. This same system would apply when we change a product name, product ID etc.

Take Contents Of Cell To Generate File Name For Link?

Jan 9, 2012

I have a restaurant and every evening the manager emails me a sales report. The names of these files are all based on the day's date so I know what the file name will be in advance (e.g. today is 20120109.xls and yesterday was 20120108.xls)

I have a master spreadsheet collating the monthly sales data. It links to the daily spreadsheets with links like this:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($A5,'C:UsersSimonDocumentsPersonalTOSEADaily Sales[20120105.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$6:$F$50,3,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP($A5,'C:UsersSimonDocumentsPersonalTOSEADaily Sales[20120105.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$6:$F$50,3,FALSE))

Each day I create a new column and drag the previous column's formulas over. I then do a find and replace to change the file name (20120105.xlsx in the example above) to the current day.

What I want to be able to do is change the filename reference in the formula above to a cell within the master spreadsheet that contains the date, so that when I drag over a new column it picks up the date from that cell and automatically uses it to create the filename in the link. The path for the file name remains the same.

Formula That Uses Link In A Cell To Create Offset Link

Jun 28, 2013

I have two worksheets, one with detail monthly information and one with YTD information. So let's say the three numbers I want to capture in the YTD sheet are in columns B, G and I on the monthly sheet. January's data might be in B5, G5 and I5. February's data is in B12, G12 and I12 and so on.

On the YTD sheet in cell C2 I link to Monthly!B5 and in C3 I link to Monthly!B12 so cells C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet show the monthly totals from column B on the detail sheet. On the YTD sheet, cells C20 to C31 show the monthly totals from column G on the monthly sheet, so cells G5, G12, etc. And finally, cells C40 to C51 on the YTD sheet show monthly totals form column I on the monthly sheet.

In the past I've always created all these links manually. After creating the links in C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet, is there a way to use a formula in C21 that uses the link in C2 to create a link for G5?

Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

How To Reference A Cell In Another Workbook And Return Cell Value And Comment

Nov 2, 2012

What is the best way to reference a cell in another workbook and return the cell contents and the comment on that cell. I would like the comment to come across as a comment in the new workbook becuase the comment is actually a picture.

Hope this makes sense. I did find a macro through googling but I couldn't get it to work? I don't really want to copy and paste because eventually I have hundreds of sheets & thousands of cells to refer to.?

Making 1 Cell Equal Another Cell Including Its Comment?

May 18, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with some cells which return values using INDEX and MATCH to bring back the entire details of a person based on there membership number. However I require the comments to be attached with the returned values. The comments have there image in, rather than just text.

I have found some answers with vba, which do the process, however you had to manually enter the cell, from which the comment was to be copied from, into a pop up box. This involved finding the box myself to then select the box to take the comment from. In doing this I had found and read the comment, which is the is the process I'm trying to bypass.

Cell Comment Autosize

Mar 17, 2009

I have the code below, and it works perfectly on my Mac. But... on my PC it does not.

The cell comment does not resize horizontally when I enter text. So if I enter a long comment I get a comment box that extends far to the right to fit the contents in. Vertically it is fine, nothing cut off and no extra space.

Any ideas why this would be? Any ideas how I can force the text to wrap in the cell comment box?

Code is below:

Sub AddCom()
Const USERNAME As String = "Greer:"
Dim strCommentName As String
Dim cmnt As String
Dim NoMore As Boolean
Dim Pos As Long

cmnt = InputBox("Please enter a comment")
strCommentName = cmnt & vbLf & Now
On Error GoTo 0

With activeCell...........

Add Image To Cell Comment Box

Cell Comment To Be The Value Of A11 On Master!

Nov 19, 2009

I'm using this formula on Sheet2 to populate a cell (copied across and down)...

=IF(COUNTIF(Master!$F$1:$F$300,$A2)>=COLUMNS($B2:B2),INDEX(Master!$B$1:$B$300,SMALL(IF(Master!$F$1:$F$300=$A2,ROW(Master!$F$1:$F$300)-ROW(Master!$F$1)+1),COLUMNS($B2:B2))),"")

In cell B2 Sheet2, I would like to have a cell comment that is populated by the data in Master! that is alongside the data looked up in this formula, this principle would apply to every cell in my range... Sheet2 B2:AC100.

So on Sheet2 B3 is populated by B11 from Master!, I would like the comment to be the value of A11 on Master!
