I have the code below that is two separate activities and I want to change the second activity from a cell trigger (Set KeyCells = Range("K42:AD42")) to a button trigger. I need to first to remain unchanged.
I'd be ok if this was just one macro that I could assign to a button but because its two and I need to write the second's to clicking a button I'm over my head.
Its occured to me while writing this that because it'll be a range of buttons I'll probably need to make each one an individual code? Is this the case? If so I may have to just keep this as it is.
What I want to achive is the colouring of the cells in columns A-L using the trigger of the "Y" character in colums J-L
So when a Y is put in column J the cells to the left and including column J change to green. Then when a Y is put into column K the cells to the left and including K turn yellow. Finally when a Y is entered in column L the cells to the left and including L turn the lovely shade of Pink. It is possible the process will go from a Y in column J to a Y in column L mising out column K but I don't suppose this will matter.
I used to have it working in office 2003 to a fashion but have not yet got my head around 2010
I have a chart with 2 Y axis. I am attempting to write some code that will update both axis with the same max & min value that is triggered by the combobox selection. The code will update the axis but is not triggered by the combobox selection.
I want to trigger a macro that refreshes a pivot table but I only want to trigger the macro after 15 seconds. The reason is that I am pulling the source data from access mdb so I want only to refresh the data once the data is pulled.
I am having trouble trying to get an MS Access Query to run from MS Excel automatically.
I am trying to create an automated trigger in MS Excel that will automatically run my Access query by the times I specify in my statement.
For example: I need to run a query in Access at 9am, 12 pm and 10pm, that's it, but I believe I need to do it via Excel, I don't want the data returned to Excel, I just want Excel to execute the query at those specific times!
A1 is a drop-down list, created from Data> Validation>List, which lists 3 different words (Text1, Text2, Text3). I have recorded 3 macros (Macro1, Macro2, Macro3). Here's what I want to happen:
When Text1 is selected in A1, I want Macro1 to run (same for Text2/Macro2 and Text3/Macro3). I want the user to be able to change this value as many times as they wish and have the corresponding Macro run each time. I've tried creating the appropriate code in Editor using other threads on this forum, but I can't seem to figure it out.
I am encountering a strange situation with my Excel 2000. I have a public function, in a module in the VBA project associated with my workbook. But I'm not calling it from nowhere inside the code, or from other macros - it is not being referred anywhere in the workbook. Yet, after I make a slight change in code and not save my changes, when I return to the workbook and select a value from any cell with a validation-list (regardless of the sheet where it resides), that particular function is being executed!
Is it possible, that while running code that the code can say initiate the click event on a command button on another sheet.
Say that I have a button on Sheet1 called "wkscmd_DisplayDEI"
Behind that button is obviously some code. I want to know is it possible that while some code is running ( code does not reside on the module page for Sheet1 that it can send a pseudo click to the button?
i'm attempting to create a spreadsheet that will enable me to calculate the number of certain materials required to construct new rural fencing. I have 4 different 'types' of fencing each requiring different levels of materials required. For example, a Type 'A' fence, requires 5 'droppers' per 10m span of fencing, whereas a Type B requires only 1, a Type C also requires 5 - but a Type D does not require any.
Here is what I have attempted to generate so far - but is giving errors;
I have cut and paste some code provided by members of this great forum to insert a row in a second worksheet at the same row number when one is inserted in the active worksheet. e.g. If I insert a new line at Row 14 in worksheet "admin" I also get a new row at Row 14 in worksheet "report".
Code is as follows:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Set sourcebook = ThisWorkbook Set sourcesheet = sourcebook.Worksheets("admin") Set targetbook = ThisWorkbook Set targetsheet = targetbook.Worksheets("report") myRow = ActiveCell.Row targetsheet.Activate ActiveSheet.Rows(myRow).EntireRow.Insert sourcesheet.Activate End Sub
However, anything I do in worksheet "admin" triggers a new row to be inserted in "report".... If I change text in any cell, or make any changes at all, I get a new row in "report".
Is there a way to restrict this action to only a line insert?
I have a series of macros altering various workbooks and sheets. They're numbered Step1, Step2, etc. In my Step5 I have a series of Case statements in a macro, and I don't know how to get it to do what I want next. I have NOT tried running this code yet, and I'm sure I have something(s) wrong in it.
1) If the selection in DstWbk, sheet "Steps", is "01DSP" through "11DSP" the macro needs to delete specific columns in the SrcWbk, and then move to the next step (6).
2) If the selection in DstWbk, sheet "Steps", is "*DSP" the macro needs to go directly to the next step (6)
3) If the selection in DstWbk, sheet "Steps", is anything else the macro needs to flash a generic "No Data found" message and move on to Step7.
The part of the code that's throwing me begins at 'Select only the specific regional data' and ends at the "Case Else MsgBox"
inputed ...................... =A1+30 and date formated cell
i am trying to get the formula to tell me after the inputed date has been changed who the next tester is
i have tried using the IF command but it wont let me specify a date range ie 1 jan to 31 jan (or in the specified date codes) date range only one specific date with >= or <= which doesnt quite work properly
I have a user entering text into a textbox on my userform. The textbox is linked to a textbox change event. Unfortunately, the event is triggered as soon as the user enters the first character of their entry. I'm thinking that the textbox change event isn't the most appropriate for this scenario. What would I need to do to trigger the code (of the change event) with hitting ENTER when finished?
If no program (code) is running and Calculation is turned to ON, what expression could be placed into a cell that will change on its own that could necessarily and periodically trigger a change event subroutine. How can I trigger a change event when nothing is changing?
I have a situation where my code simply stops running so i need a change event to assess whether code is running (or not) and to issue a warning to the programmer that the code is, in fact, stalled. The change event subroutine has not only a warning system but a "timetorun" feature that will come back and warn again until the programmer can address the issue.
Unfortunately, I have to deal with this issue in a check and balance fashion because my many attempts to seek solutions to a stalled program (root cause) have failed.
I'm creating a small Excel RPG where the player moves the around a blank worksheet with the walls of a maze appearing as you approach them (think dark corridors, you can see only 1 cell in all directions around you).
The players current location is shown by excel setting the activecell to the players location. Currently I have four buttons labeled Up, Down, Left and Right which the player clicks to move in the desired direction.
The testers were frequently missing the four movement buttons and this would put the activecell outside of the maze next to one of the buttons. They'd have to move it back manually.
I would like for the players to move around using the arrow keys to use the activecell, as you would normally move around a sheet... but before each movement there is a procedure that check IF the player can move in the desired direction or not (cell borders used for walls), and then once they've moved there are more procedures to check for monsters treasure chests etc.
How can I make the arrow keys trigger the macros that the Up, Down, Left and Right buttons currently trigger, and not just move the activecell?
I am working with a large legacy file/program which has a lot of issues. Foremost, and unfortunately this cannot be changed, is that all of the controls were placed directly on the worksheets instead of on Userforms.
I had previously posted code from the legacy file which may have been excessively complicated. So I edited my post to this simple example. Sheet1 has one textbox and one command button. Sheet 2 is blank.
If Sheet2.Activate is commented, everything works fine. If Sheet2.Activate is executed, then Excel crashes....
This (unprotects the sheet first, then) unhids rows (starting at row 1500, until it reaches row 4). Now my most current vexation- How do I lock/protect the past rows? Say a co-worker enters information in row 1500 and walks away. The next co-worker inserts a new row (which would be row 1499) to place data in there, how can I get row 1500 to lock (or become protected) as the new row (which in this case 1499) would become unhidden? It would be very important that the information in the previous rows remain locked so that nobody can change any client information (unless they had supervisory/administration access).
If it is not possible to protect or lock the whole row, it would also work if I could just lock one of the cells in the previous row.
I am using the following Sub Row_Unhiding() ' ' Row_Unhiding Macro ' Macro recorded 2/12/2009 by gr8_big_geek ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+i ' ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="secret" R = 1500 Do Until Rows(R).Hidden = True R = R - 1 If R < 4 Then MsgBox "No more rows to add!", vbCritical, "Error" Exit Sub End If Loop Rows(R).Hidden = False ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="secret" End Sub
I am trying to work out a formula calculating dates.
basically a piece of work / report is due for completion twenty working days from a trigger date. And I need the formula to calculate this due date. Im using the workday function, which calculates a date using the number of working days given after the trigger date.
this would work fine, except that the trigger date needs to be included in the calculation (inclusive). I have tried changing the value for the number of working days to nineteen, which would logically give the right answer (20 days including the trigger day). BUT the bloody thing doesnt work, because the trigger date can be on a weekend or holiday!! so then it calculates 19 days (as it should) but the result is wrong because the trigger day isnt included (as its a holiday/weekend).
