I want to be able to a place a picture on a workbook based on a cell. In column A, I will run a sql query to pull a list of items. In column B, I have the items formated thus they have a the .jpg. next to item of the picture i.e Hammer.jpg. whereas column A lists Hammer and Column B Hammer.jpg. In column C, I would like the pictures to reside in this column.
So far I have this macro but I can only get two pictures to come up even though my list has 4 items on it.
Sub pic() Dim x, c, d, a As Long d = 2 c = 40 For a = 2 To 6 b = Cells(a, 2)
I have on Sheet1 a table with a list of values in column A, and their corresponding picture in column B. On Sheet2 I have used the define name option to set up an index,match against the original table so that the relevant picture shows whenever someone selects one of the values in column A.
The problem is, while the pictures will change when the values are changed, because all of the pictures are "named", they will continue to show if a value not in the lookup table is selected.
Is there a piece of code that would allow me to specify if cell=blank,hide picture if not show picture?
I have seen the attached code, however this either shows or hides ALL the pictures on the active sheet, while I want to show or hide the picture in the active cell only.
I have a user here at my company that is having a strange issue with Excel. When she moves a page break in her document, Excel freezes up, then once it finally makes the change (if it doesn't crash), some (but not all) of the images that are in the document resize to super small.
For instance, she may have 50 rows. Each row contains a column with an image, then a few other columns with product information. Changing a page break may cause ten of the images to become tiny for no apparent reason. Resetting page breaks seems to cause the document to explode, with cells being thrown all over the page into different locations and columns becoming uneven.
When I make the same change on the same document on my system (both using similar specs and Office 2010), this does not happen.
I am trying to select a shape in a cell and place a cell reference into the shape. I know the cell address, but do not know the shape reference. (The row that the cell and shape reside came from copying the row from another sheet and inserting it into the current sheet). I can not seem to come up with the correct code to accomplish this. Right now I have:
Where r+1 is the row where the line finally resides after insertion and "AW" is the column to the right of the cell where the shape resides.
I have tried to put the cell reference into the shape at the location where it is copied from but the reference is not dynamic and I can not seem to get it to be. Another issue that will arise is that the rows in the new sheet will probably be sorted and I question if the cell reference will follow the shape's new location.
I am having some trouble with the vba code I'm using to reference pictures. Now please bear with me, I'm don't know vba whatsoever and am copy/pasting what I found on the internet.
The spreadsheet in question is attached....
I am trying to show a picture based on the inputs in the cells above. Basically the picture in cell A28 is referenced by the information in cell AI7. The picture in cell D28 should be referenced by the information in cell AI8 and so on.
The problem is that when I enter the code to insert multiple pictures, it comes up with errors.
I'm hoping this is just my lack of programming knowledge and this is an easy fix. Please tell me where I am going wrong.
Also, will there be an issue if I reference the same picture multiple times?
I had a macro that worked perfectly by inserting pictures into named ranges throughout the sheet depending on user input. However when I switched to Microsoft Excel 2007, the pictures all go into one cell.
My code looks like this:
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim picnme As String Dim rng As Range Dim ArrImg Set rng = Range("B5") picnme = Range("B5")
How do I insert pictures into Excel's cells, so as to get a mosaic of say 2x3 pics?
Trying to just drag a pic onto a cell does not make the pic sticks. I need the pics to behave like in frames in HTML, including moving, resizing etc. Same for video clips that I want running within the cells.
I have a button on say, sheet1 with text that I want to change after a certain action takes place; however, I was trying to change this text without switching sheets. (switching sheets isn't a big deal, I'm mainly trying to do it my way for the practice). I'm able to select the button on the other sheet without actually switching sheets, but when it comes to changing it's text I get an error. Here is the code I tried:
Sub macro1 () Worksheets("sheet2").Select Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 2").Select Selection.Characters.Text = "Done" End Sub
Problem with this is it gives cell A1 on sheet2 the "done" text. I also tried this...but it gives the error.
Sub macro1 () Worksheets("sheet2").Select Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 1").Select With Worksheets("sheet1").Shapes("Button 1") .Characters.Text = "Done" End With End Sub
I have an workbook with pictures that are linked to external picture files, and they are placed in the workbook via macro. When I email the file to another computer and open it, the pics do not display and show an error:
The linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted, Verify that the link points to the correct file and location.
I would like to be able to save the workbook with the pictures in them (without having to archive them) so that I can open it and see them on another machine.
whenever the active cell is within a given range, highlight the cell on the same row in column S (by changing its interior colour). This should occur each time the active cell is changed, whether by cursor keys or mouse. The effect would be similar to the row and column highlights at left and top of the worksheet.
This action should be restricted to one sheet in the workbook.
I have got stuck on one piece of my code and having trouble fixing... Overall I am trying to find variable station name in cell L2 of Sheet 2 in Sheet 1 and then select and copy the data from the data in "cell L2 of Sheet 2" to the last entry of that row. I have attached an example test spreadsheet of the data and a macro is within Sheet 1 called test1. Please note that cell L2 in Sheet 2 will always be different station name and the station list in Sheet 1 will change with differing station name.
The code I am using is:
The code that is not working and bringing up an error is:
Is there a way to automate the resizing of a row to accomodate the text that is pulled into a cell as the result of a formula?
I have a merged cell which receives the result of a DGET formula. The result can be as few as 6 lines of text or as many as 24 lines.
I suspect I need to count the number of lines in the result and resize based on that count multiplied by 15 points.
I don't know how to write the VBA but it would be kind of Resize Row.Countlines x 15 pts. and be executed by the event of calculating the formula from its default setting.
Practically speaking, the default setting is sized per the result of the desired code: there is a blank formatted merged cell that can be manually overwritten that is sized by the typical number of bullet points.
I have inlcuded my workbook that I use for tracking the NFL season and I'd like to add in some team logos just to make it look a little cooler.
The attached workbook includes three sheets, the first of which uses a drop-down for selecting picks. The second sheet has the team logos and the third sheet feeds off the first.
I'd like for team logos to populate into the third sheet based on what is selected in the first sheet.
I've already tried a few methods, all unsuccessfully. I tried this [URL] which was a great idea but it didn't allow for the same image to be repeated potentially 100 times. I also tried a method involving named ranges and indirect lookups to the linked picture image but that would require a different named range for every person and every pick which isn't feasible.
if it's possible to just do a massive nested if statement with a vlookup to return an image but I haven't been successful in that either.
I need to start with a worksheet without any objects, namely pictures. Without knowing the name of the object, is there a way to clear all objects on a worksheet?
Second: on a different worksheet there are products with pictures with the product number. When a user selects the product number I want to copy that picture and copy it to J42 of the first sheet. My issue is positioning the picture.
I am working to make an automatic result card in which excel automatically gets data of every student which is present in sheet within the workbook by simply writing roll number of the student in a cell. and i have done it easily by Vlookup and index functions but the only problem i am facing is, that i want to show the picture of each student by roll no. pictures are in one folder on my hard drive, now i want that as the roll number of the student is written the result excel should display the picture (from the folder, each picture named by roll)of the student. for example i write 1234 in roll no cell and want to get and show the picture no 1234 in another cell. (from the folder)
