Hyperlink Button To Another Worksheet

I have an existing button which has either a macro or hyperlink assigned to it which links to another worksheet within the workbook. I would like to change the worksheet it is linked to. I have tried right click - edit hyperlink and picked a different sheet, and also assign macro - record new macro. I have even removed hyperlink, then inserted new but no matter what it still goes back to the same sheet.

I am in this position after copying and pasting an existing button. I'm not sure how they designed it from scratch so I would really prefer to just change the link.

If I insert a command button into an excel spreadsheet on 'Sheet1', how do I make it a hyperlink button that will take me to cell A1 on the 'Sheet2' tab?

Use A Command Button To Activate A Hyperlink
I am trying to write a macro that activates the following funtion in cell D1.


I have recorded the following macro but it only jumps to the cell the function is in rather than actually activating the function and jumping to reference which has been selected in C2.

Worksheet Change Hyperlink
I have a question regarding what i wish to do is force a hyperlink in what i thoguht would be esily dne in a worksheet change event...hw wrong was i.

Lets say i type 'test' in A1 and press because i ave pressed enter A1 is no longer the active cell so the code in the sheet change event inserts the code into A2 but because A is blank the 'Text to display' becomes the hyperlinks address.

I wrote a simple with/ end with thinking it would work but it doesnt because of the issue above (Hope i am making sense here)

I got round it by copying the activecell (which would be the cell underneath) and pasting it back to the original target cell, which because it contains text does what i wantbut i am hoping for a much cleaner solution.....

My target column is '1' and only one i will just need to exit the sub anywhere else on the sheet

Vba Hyperlink To Local Worksheet
I would like to, using VBA, assign a hyperlink to an excel cell that links to another worksheet within the same workbook. I've tried the forums, and combined with a previous post and MS Excel Help File, I've come up with the following attempt:

With Worksheets("Test Destination")
.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=.Cells(counter + 4, 5), Address:=strHyper2, _
TextToDisplay:=(#1/1/2007# + counter)

End With

strHyper2 is previously defined: strHyper2 = "[WeatherTester.xls]1!A1"

My spreadsheet file is "WeatherTester.xls", my worksheet is "1", and "A1" is the desired link location for the cursor. Counter is an integer. I get the error "Invalid procedure call or argument". I also tried to enter a hyperlink directly through the formula property, but Excel didn't like the single quotations I had to use within the HYPERLINK function. The hyperlink formula works in the following form: =HYPERLINK("[WeatherTester.xls]1!A1","1 Jan")

HYPERLINK Function To A Second Worksheet In One Workbook
I'm having a problem with the HYPERLINK function. I am trying to make jumps from an index sheet to the large worksheet with all the actual info in it. The name of the file is SKU and the large info sheet is also called SKU. First I took the SKU sheet and numbered the rows (="A"&CELL("row",A1)), then in the index worksheet I created a VLOOKUP that finds the corresponding chapter title and returns that value.

Worksheet 1

2 100 =VLOOKUP(A2,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE) ="[SKU]SKU!"&VLOOKUP(A2,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE)
3 150 =VLOOKUP(A3,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE) ="[SKU]SKU!"&VLOOKUP(A3,SKU!$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE)

I used the HYPERLINK formula in column D: "=HYPERLINK(C2,A2)" and it returns something that looks like the right thing but the link won't open.

Import Folder Structure Into Worksheet & Hyperlink
I have found the code shown below that imports Folder Contents into a Worksheet in Excel, however i need to import a folder tree structure for a set of folders into a worksheet not the folder contents. Is it possible to do this?

Could the code i found below be altered to list the folders not the folder contents?

The code is:

Sub Print_Dir_Contents()
Dim Input_Dir, Print_File As String
Input_Dir = InputBox("Input the path containing the files you " & _
"want to list on your worksheet" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
"for example:C:My Documents*.*")
If Input_Dir = "" Then Exit Sub
' If you want only to print a specific file type, you can
' substitute the "*.*" with "*.xl*"
' (for Excel files only) for the directory specified in the
' InputBox above.
If Application.OperatingSystem Like "*Win*" Then
Print_File = Dir(Input_Dir) & "*.*"
End If

Put Hyperlink Code In This Button Code
Sub Increment()
Dim Lr As Long
Lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
If IsNumeric(Cells(Lr, "A")) Then
Cells(Lr + 1, "A").Value = Cells(Lr, "A").Value + 1
End If
End Sub

This adds 1 to the previous cell and displays in the next available cell.

How could I make it sao that when this number enters in the cell it hyperlinks automatically to the master file?

Before this button was introduced I used this:

Private Sub App_WorkbookBeforeSave(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
On Error GoTo Err_App_WorkbookBeforeSave

Dim hl As Hyperlink

For Each hl In Me.Hyperlinks
If Wb.FullName = hl.Address Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Cancel = True..............

Click The Master Button, That Would Click Another Button On A Different Worksheet
Running into this issue of "transworksheet macros"

I have a master "update" commandbutton on sheet 1. I have two sub "update" buttons on sheet 2 and 3 respectively.

What I would like to do is have the user click the master button, that would "click" the two sub buttons so they run their respective macros on their respective worksheets (within the same worksheet.

I have tried pasting the macro code in the master button, telling it to select the sub worksheet and then run the macro, but the marco runs itself on the master worksheet instead.

Hyperlink Address From Hyperlink Formula/Function
I am having a slight problem copying hyperlinks. I have written some code that sorts data by date and then creates a simple diary. It originally placed the name of the event in the new diary sheet. What I would like to do is instead of copying the name into this new sheet copy a hyperlink that I have created to the company's website for that event.

I can create the hyperlink using hyperlink(B1,A1) where A1 is the company name and B1 is the web address but since the new sheet will not have the underlying data I need to actually copy the values and format of the hyperlink rather than the formula.

Can I Add A Submit Button To Worksheet
I'm working on an order form in excel and wondered if someone can tell me if it's possible to add a 'submit button' to a worksheet (order) that would do the following,

1.) print 3 copies (orders) of the current sheet

2.) create a new worksheet in the same workbook with a new order number (a specific cell in the worksheet) one higher than the current one. Also naming the new worksheet with the new order number.

3.) Save the current workbook.

Maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself here but any help would be much appreciated as I'm really rusty at this...

Get Index Of A Button Added To Worksheet
I have created a calendar to enter various locations. At present they are set up using VBA and are called from buttons on the calendar. What I want to do is add a button to the worksheet and then edit its text. I will call a subroutine to use the edited text as the name I want in the calendar. What I cannot figure out is how to return the index of the button have just added so i can alter the button text. I appreciate I could cycle through all the shapes on the sheet but as I do not know the number of the one I have just added I cannot work on the correct one. I suppose I could cycle through all of them and use a carrier to count how many there are then add one to get the latest but that seems very crude not mention time consuming as I allready have 504 text boxes on the claendar.

Adding Sort Button To Worksheet
I have data in several (50+) columns. I want to be able to sort all my data by the column I select with one click. So, I basically want a button over each column that sorts the data by that column. It would be ideal to have the same "Sort" macro that is attached to all the buttons. The macro should somehow know that the column the button is in, is the column to sort by.

Controlling Button Properties On A Worksheet
I am trying to change the text that appears on a button on a worksheet via a macro. There is only one button on the worksheet so in the macro I use

MyCaption = activecell.value 'Pick up the button text from the spreadsheet
For each sh in activesheet.shapes
sh.caption = MyCaption
'I know this would do all, but only one button as I said
next sh

which generates "Object doesn't support this property or method".

This is strange because if you get the properties box up, Caption definitely shows as a property of a button control.

Adding & Deleting Button On Worksheet
I am trying to create two macros. The first macro will add a button, and the second macro will delete the button.

Determine Position Of Shape/Button On Worksheet
I have written a small piece of code that handles clicks on buttons on an excel spread sheet. When a button is pressed, i need to know the row number where the button resides in.

I have searched and read about this issue on several forums, and they all indicate that i need to use something like


to get the row number and


to get the column number.

However, when i use the row variant, it ALWAYS returns row number 1. When i use the column variant, it returns the column number it is actually in.

i have added the full code that is creating the buttons below, and also the part that displayes the rownumber that is incorrect.

Button Position/Coordinates On Worksheet. Discrepancy Between Versions
Add Multiple Buttons That Select Row Of Housing Cell. One of my Macro's places a button on a sheet using Top/Left;

Set sbut = Sheets("Listings").Shapes.AddFormControl(xlButtonControl, _
Range("J" & count).Left, Range("J" & count).Top, 50, 12)

When I try to find the row of the clicked button using the following code;


The code behaves differently in Excel 2002 and 2007. In 2002 it returns the row the button sits on, but 2007 returns the cell above the button. This could be because the workbook is an XLS running in Excel 2007 in compatibility mode? Is there a way to "nudge" the button down a little after it has been placed using .top/.left ? Or is the only way around this something like;

count = ActiveCell.Row
If Application.Version >= 12 Then
count = count + 1
End If

Is this a bug, or something that I am doing wrong ? The workbook needs to be a .xls to ensure that it works in older versions of Excel.

Reference Cell Based On Button Location & Determine Button Used
I received this code from an example I found once upon a time that was originally submitted by someone else. Right now the code enters the current date in a cell of the same row as the checkbox when it's checked. I need to revise it, or come up with something similar, that will reference the value of a cell when it is in the same row as the button (from the Forms toolbar) that is clicked to activate the macro. First of all, I don't know how to reference a Forms button in VBA.

Sub Process_CheckBox()
Dim cBox As CheckBox
Dim LRow As Integer
Dim LRange As String
LName = Application.Caller
Set cBox = ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes(LName)
' Find row that checkbox resides in
LRow = cBox.TopLeftCell.Row
LRange = "B" & CStr(LRow)
'Change date in column B, if checkbox is checked
If cBox.Value > 0 Then
ActiveSheet.Range(LRange).Value = Date
'Clear date in column B, if checkbox is unchecked
ActiveSheet.Range(LRange).Value = Null
End If
End Sub

Here is some other code I already created. Unfortunately, because I don't know how to do the row reference, I had to create 25 different macros, which just bulks up the size of my file and slows it down. But here is what I'm trying to accomplish in my macro:.............
