Getting A Value To Increase Or Decrease Number Or Rows...
I need to be able to select a certain number (from, say, 1-20) from a drop down menu, which will decide a number of rows (filled with data) on the next sheet. As I prefer not to give anyone the sheet I'm actually working on I made a quick look-a-like which might explain this better.

A and B are different scenarios, with different values in the fake drop-down menu I made. Just to pass on the understanding of what I want the values to do. If putting a drop-down menu there is troublesome, then I can live without them. But entering a certain value in the field and getting that number of rows for a certain product is what I need. I tried searching for a function/macro to use for this, but I dont know what exactly to look for. Name, etc

Increase/decrease Values Individually?
I have a single simple question, so let's get straight to the point: I have an A column with these values:

I==================== ....
I 1 I____40____I_________ ....
I 2 I____50____I_________.....
I 3 I____30____I_________.....

And I need each of these values increased/decreased by a constant number.

So far, I only found formulas where all cells are, say, added into a single result, as you can see here:.....

Increase/Decrease Times By X Hours
in speeding up the below code as it does not seem to matter whether I use For, If loop etc - it runs too slowly. Basically we have one sheet which is input in a different timezone that needs converting to GMT... since daylight saving I wrote some code to cover the +/- 1 hour difference (this seems to work quite well) yet when it comes to converting the actual cells it runs incredibly slowly. I appreciate any help but its only the code after "Sheets("data").Unprotect" that i think needs changing. The time stamp is in column 7 - I hope this makes enough sense - which then gets converted by either 4.5 or 5.5 hours dependent on british summer time.

Sub TimeConvert()

With Application
.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
. ScreenUpdating = False
.DisplayAlerts = False
.EnableEvents = False
End With

Dim FirstDate As Date
Dim Position, DayIndex, lgrow, lstrow As Long, TargetMonth As Long, Stweekday, Enweekday, Tdate As Date, TargetYear As Long, cell As Range
Dim bst As Boolean

TargetYear = Year(Now)
TargetMonth = 3
Position = "L"
DayIndex = 1

Command Button Size Increase / Decrease
I'm building a keypad out of commandbutton controls, and there's this strange resizing behavior with the commandbuttons. I've attached an example, as it's much easier to see than describe.... but essentially, clicking a button seems to enlargen it slightly, and then two clicks later, it 'dezooms' back to original size (even with shadows turned off). while this is not hugely noticeable individually, it feels really strange when there's a whole keypad of commandbuttons.

Keyboard Shortcut To Highlight All Cells In A Column From Bottom To Top
What is the best way to highlight all cells in a column from bottom to top?

For example, if I'm in column O, row 138, what keyboard shortcut would I need to select ONLY and ALL cells from the row I'm currently on, (in this example, 138) to row 1 and ONLY in that particular column?

Keep in mind that the next time I may be starting at row 1,200, it could be different everytime.

I tried everything I could think of..


and nothing worked to select everything in that column from the row I'm currently on, to row 1.

Increase In Decimals Returns Strange Result
I have discovered a strange thing about excel and it is driving me mad and ruining my project.

Basically, If i enter the number 97.4 into cell A1 and then 97.165 into cell B1 and then enter the formula =A1-B1 into cell C1 i get the answer 0.235. Which is correct.

However, when you increase the number of decimal places to 30 the answer that is returned is 0.234999999999999000000000000000.

This calculation result seem to fluctuate wildly depending on the primary numbers in cells a1 and b1. Very rarely have i seen the full 30 decimal places without a bizarre result like this.

Maybe it has been too many years since i was at school and that i am confused with my numbers and that there is a real easy answer to why this result is returned.

As i said it is ruining my project that i am working on. Can anyone help? Why does excel do this? Is there a way to stop this happening? My project relies on this answer to be correct. Is there a way to force excel to stop doing this?

Number Format (4 Decimals Places) In VBA
I am having an issue with number format in my VBA code. The entire column of column D is format as ###.0000 (4 decimals places). There are certains cells which require zero decimal places. I am using the following bit of code, but it is not working correctly. It is still formatting the cell as 4 decimal places.

SpinButton To Increment By Decimals Not Whole Number
Im using this code to change the value of an active cell with a spinner named: 1.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim lNum As Long
If IsNumeric(Target) Then
lNum = Target
If lNum = Target And Target >= 0 Then
With Me.Shapes("1").ControlFormat
.LinkedCell = vbNullString
.Value = Target
.LinkedCell = Target.Address
End With
Me.Shapes("1").ControlFormat.LinkedCell = vbNullString
End If
End If
End Sub

The problem is, that whenever I click or activate a cell its value automatically changes to 0. The spinner works just fine modifying the value of the activated cell. The problem is that this code somehow causes all the decimals such as 0,3 0,1 or 0,8, entered manually, to change to 0. This way only integral numbers, such as 1, 45 or 100 are accepted. I must truly say I have no [no need to swear - mod] idea how to fix these problems meaning the automatically inserted 0 and the fact that the sheet doesnt accept decimals changing them to an integral number.

Alter The Number Of Decimals In A Custom Format
is there any way by which you can alter the number of decimals in a custom format using just custom format process (ie no VBA).

For ex:

12 should appear as 12
12.1 should appear as 12.1
12.26 should appear as 12.3

Note 12 should NOT appear as 12.0

So point being adding the "m" is an irrelevance at this time - the key is to vary the decimal points essentially based on MOD(value,1) = 0

If you can (I'm really thinking you can't) let's extend it such that 12.1 should appear as 12.1 but 12.26 as 12.26

I know you can use [value>x] type rules but I'm guessing you can't use formulae in those rules ?

Divide An Number Of Jobs Without Ending Up With Decimals
I'm trying to create a formula which will allow me to do the following

1. Enter the number of jobs received
2. Divide it by the staff available without ending up with decimals.

As an example. Say I have 60 jobs to be allocated and there are 13 peeps to distribute them to I'm currently getting 4.62. What I need to do is make sure that the jobs are only issued as whole numbers. E.g 5 peeps gets 4 and 8 get 5. I also need to factor in jobs on hand etc but I have already cracked this.

Macro To Increase A Number
what i need is a macro to run when I print a form. I am making a job card with a unique number on it ie: 100. when I print the form, I then need the 100 to change to 101 and so on. I cant work this one out.

EDIT - Ive attached my work in progress. It is for a computer repair shop. I have a few macros in there as I need to email a copy of the workbook too.

when you open the workbook, you will see the job number in red. I just need a macro tht will increase that number +1 every time it runs. I also need the email macro to rename the workbook to the customer name input in cell B4 - but I think im best to post this request in a new thread?

Decrease Cell Value
Is there a formula or maybe some VB code that can be used to decrease a cell value if another cell's value is changed. e.g. I have a userform that has a Textbox that will put a 6 digit number in cell J4 & a Combobox that enters a number in cell E4. If the value of J4 is changed from the Textbox, I would like to have cell E4's value decrease by 1. If J4 doesn't change, cell E4 remains unchanged.

Increasing/decreasing; Rate Of Decrease - Spreadsheet
Im trying to make this:

Amount of money: 1000 (changeable)
Beginning # of units: 0,1 (changeable)
Delta: 200 (changeable)
Rate of decrease: 50% (changeable)

0,1 unit should be added for every 200$ increase (1000+200=1200; 1200+200=1400; 1400+500=1900; 1900+256=2156 etc)
0,1 unit should be taken away after decreasing by100$ (because the rate of decrease = 50% (changeable))

After increasing of 1000 + 200, quantity of units should also increase for 0,1, so it should be 0,2 (1200), 0,3(1400), 0,4(1600).. Amount of money can increase not only by 200, but for any sum. If that sum is (for example) 500, we should increase by 0,2 etc.

But when this some decreasing we are using rate of decrease (for example 50%, (changeable):
0,4 units 1600
0,3 units 1500
0,2 units 1400
0,1 unit 1300

Formula To Decrease A Margin, In Connection With Increasing Basic Value
I'm trying to build a formula to form a price-list. I have some basic prices from a supplier and want to build my prices with a simple rule: the higher the basic price is (column A), the lower my profit margin (in %) should be (column B). Example:

Basic value is $50, my price is $75 (50% margin)
Basic value is $100, my price is $130 (30% margin)
Basic value is $150, my price is $172,5 (15% margin)
And so on...

Font Size Decrease In Data Validation List
Using excel 2007, I have a worksheet with numerous data validation drop down lists. I was making a few changes to the worksheet and then I restarted the code. The font size of all my drop down lists displayed as a smaller font (maybe 2 sizes smaller) than had been displayed before. I went back to a previously saved copy of the code and the font size in the drop downs is back at the original size. Did I do something to cause this or is it excel 2007?

VBA (Keyboard Strokes)
I've programmed in many different forms of BASIC in my days, but I'm having too much trouble with VBA, and can't figure out if it's me or if it's the version of Excel I'm using (2002). I wrote a program in Excel, where if certain cells contain values other cell's calculations will become active. I want to click on a button that I created on the spreadsheet, then be able to select different keyboard strokes to activate these cells. I understand that there are 3 event codes that circle around this concept and that is KeyDown, KeyUp and KeyPress. Whenever I type in what MS Help told me to type in for these events, it always returns a runtime error.

Flushing The Keyboard Buffer
I've run into a problem and I cannot resolve. I am designing an Excel Application in VBA. During the execution of the VBA code, the user will press different keys on the keyboard. These keystrokes are determined by using the GetAsyncKeyState Function. The problem happens when I exit from the VBA code and move back to a worksheet outside the code execution.

Lets say a user has pressed the 'Q' and 'X' key just prior to the final VBA subroutine running and releasing the worksheets back to the user. On the worksheet, in the selected cell will appear the 'Q' and 'X'. For some reason these keystrokes are not 'flushed' from the keyboard buffer prior to the code completion and are being transfered to the active worksheet. This is really annoying if I am testing the code in the VBA editor, because the spurious keystrokes will be placed in my VBA code, causing me to search for the out of place characters.
