Link Tab Name To A Cell Without Using A Macro

Is there a way of embedding a formula in a worksheet so that the tab name of each worksheet is linked to a value in a cell on that sheet? (I don't want to run a macro)
In other words if the cell name is changed, the page name changes automatically.

Macro Create A Hyper Link Once Data Is Entered Into Specific Cell
Is it possible to have a macro create a hyper link once data is entered into specific cell, i have a multi sheet work book used as a stock card system.

Each stock item has its own worksheet and the product code is entered in to cell E3
(which in turn has a macro in it to change the sheet name to match the product code).

the macro also inserts a row of info into row 5 of another sheet used as a summary sheet ( CONTROL.SHEET or SHEET 4) using copy and paste link.

i need a macro to generate a hyperlink in cell D4 of the control sheet between the row info and the matching product code sheet ( the product code is displayed in cell E4 of the control sheet.

I only input one item at a time and then manually cut and insert the row info into the stock list on control sheet. so every time i input a new item, the row info is always in row 5 of the control sheet.

Can I Link 3 Buttons To 1 Macro
Is it possible to link 3 buttons to one macro.

What I'm trying to do is have 3 buttons:

Load Button:
-Which makes a copy of the current sheet, renames it, and freezes its values

Print Button:
prints all the sheets

Clear button:
deletes all of the named sheets

I'm sure this can be done with an if then else statement, but I'm just not sure how to set it up to capture input.

Macro Not Work On Another Tab
To run a macro from the first tab of the workbook but have it do it work on another tab.

In the workbook in question I have a tab called "input" were certain information in updated and is linked or used in formulas on other tabs. Some of the tabs have macros that do various functions. I would like to set up one macro button on the "input" tab that would run the macros on the other tabs instead of having to run each one individually from its own tab.

Below is on of the macros that I would like to run from the "input" tab and have it update the "AP Accrual" tab

Sub CopyPriorMonthAccruals()
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=EOMONTH(Input!R[5]C,-1)"
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=EOMONTH(Input!R[5]C,0)"................................

VBA -Determine Last Row Of Source Data Tab For Use In Executing Formulas In Template Tab
I am currently building a workbook with 2 tabs.

The first is a data dump tab. The number of rows used in this tab will change each time it is used.

The second tab currently has a header row and in cells A2-H2 are formulas based on data in the first tab.

I am creating a macro to autofill those formulas, but I don't know how to determine what is the last row of data in the 1st tab and use that as reference in my macro.

Using Data From DDE Link In A Macro
I wonder if it is possible to bring data from DDE-links to variables in a macro without first bringing it to cells in Excel. The reason why I want to do this is because I only need the data when the macro is run (that is when a certain button is pushed). It would be a waste of system resources to continously link the data to cells in Excel. I asked the same question a few days ago at another forum but didn't get any reply.

Link By Formula Two Cells Within Macro
I have one list in one sheet that is source for the userform and combobox used on another sheet. With userform I make a choice and data is entered in one cell.
But is it possible to compare the choice that I make in combobox with the list on the first sheet and then make a simple link between these two cells, so that cell in the second sheet is always showing what is in the cell on the first sheet.
Reason for this is that items on the list on the first sheet sometimes change and I need to update the second sheet automatically.

Private Sub cmdOK_Click()

With Sheets("Presentation").Range("V18:V32")
Set c = . Find(cbochange.Value, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstAddress = c.Address
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2).Formula = firstAddress
Set c = .FindNext(c)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstAddress
End If
End With
Unload Me
End Sub

Put Geometric Averages Of Each Column From Each Tab In A Summary Tab
I have multiple sheets each containing multiple columns of numbers, and sometimes when the numbers are not present there is a text error string such as "#N/A N.A.", or "#N/A N Ap". An example of the data is as follows:

#N/A N.A.

I would like to put geometric averages of each column from each tab in a summary tab.

* I tried using =GEOMEAN(...), but it can not handle the quantity of data that I have nor can it take non-numeric fields.

* Also Tried something like this =EXP(AVERAGE(IF(ISNUMBER(C:C),LN(C:C)))) as an array, but unless cells are specified explicitly, ie c10:c300, I get an answer of 1. I can not specify the cells because I have a variable height of each column.

Macro To Pull Information From One Tab To Another
I am trying to put together a macro to pull data from one tab to another. The key here is that I want it to take the entire row.

Basically it will look something like this:

As someone goes down the rows of the checklist putting x's in the boxes that need one (there is a column set aside for that), that box will turn red.

That part is easy and done.

What I cant figure out how to do next is to automatically have a copy made of the row with the red cell and send them to another document.

Macro To Link Check Boxes To Cells
I have a spreadsheet setup which includes a number of checkboxes set up using the forms toolbar.

I would like to link each of these checkboxes (in sheet1) to a cell reference in sheet2. I'm trying to write a macro that will do this for me to save me right clicking, choosing format control etc for each checkbox.

I found the code on this page:
which appears to be similar to what I am trying to achieve. In this case it creates the checkboxes in cells B3:B20 and links them to C3:C20.

I have already created all the checkboxes, and wish to use a macro to link them (for example) to C3:C20 in sheet2.

Save As Macro :: Tab Delimited Files
I use a macro that saves my activesheets in text(tab delimited).

I am trying to find how to save my worksheets as tab delimited files without having to open the notepad later, in order to press the backspace button. Just to clarify more, if a sheet has 15 rows of data, the tab delimited file will be created with 16. Is there a way to save the actual number of rows in the text file or this is a default operation in excel that cannot be changed in any way?

Macro To Sort Current Tab Worksheet
I basically need a macro to sort the sheet by V, U, T starting from row 3 and ending before the last vechicle. This is the problem though, the last vehicle ends everytime right before Car # in column A. So in other words in this example i would need it sorted by v u t, starting from 3 down to row 12. It ends at 12 because the next line includes car and a number.

Another sheet might have a longer list of vehicles and might end at row 100 before the next line has car number .

It always starts at 3, but the ending is dynamic where it should stop its selection before "car number ".

I would also like it to work on the current sheet im on, because i have up to 100 sheets like this and would not want it name dependant. Just want to click on a tab, and run a macro and have it sort from 3 down to the line before car in column A.............

Link Cells To Chosen Workbook Macro Code
I am trying to write a code in VBA to collect data from several weekly workbooks, and list them up in a monthly workbook.

These weekly workbooks change names depending on the week, for example, we have:

Report week 1.xls
Report week 2.xls
Report week 3.xls
Report week 4.xls

Each report has the same layout, so the data I want will be in the same cells. However, as the report names change as the weeks in the year go on, I can't write the code for weeks 1-4 as they will not work with week 5 onwards!

I have found out how to chose a file of my choice using:

Sub GetImportFileName()
Dim FInfo As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant

' Set up list of file filters
FInfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"

' Display *.* by default
FilterIndex = 5 ......................

Link Variables & Sheets In Macro To A Userform
I have a sheet with 3 macros. It consists of two macros to produce results, and the third to bridge the two together where is all starts. I have built a userform in the sheet and am trying to get the variables in both sheets, to be user changeable and selectable via the userform.

In the attached data, the userform allows for the selection of two sheets, A and B. The user would select in A the sheet with data which is equivalent to Oval_An and in B the sheet with the data equivalent to Oval_DMA. The first macro, Find_75 runs, followed by the second macro, kTest, all working to produce results when hitting the Subtract button on the form. The Find_75 tolerance are also defined via the useform box, as well as kTest's compare tolerance.

Macro Not Working Except In One Tab, Must Save And Reopen To Work In Others.
I have a wierd issue. I have this macro for a workbook i use and if i run the macro in the first tab it runs and works fine. When i select the other tab and run it it gives me a debug error. If i close the worksheet save it and reopen it and run it in the other tab it runs fine.

So in otherwords i have to run the macro in the tab desired, save it , and always close and reopen the file to run it in the other tabs. I know the code is correct because it runs flawlessly without errors but i must be missing something.

Also i currently have the macro to run on the active tab/worksheet. Can i have it run on multiple tabs? i have 15 20 and 30 tabs in this example file but in my real file i have many more milage intervals ( some tabs i would not want to select ). It gets tedious having to select one tab at a time, run the macro, rinse and repeat.

For Example Run Macro First, in the first tab. It works perfectly. Go to the second tab and run the first macro. It gives a debug error. If you save the file and reopen it and go to teh second tab and run the macro again it works.

Color Sheet Tab Based On Cell Value & Name Cell
I want to change the color of worksheet tabs based on a cell's value. The following code works great, except I can only seem to get it to work when using "$A$1" as the cell's address. When I give the cell a defined name at the sheet level it does not seem to work. I want to be able to use the same code on varying worksheets that will have the cell in different locations. How should I be calling the cell using the defined name?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
Select Case Target.Value
Case "Men"
Me.Tab.ThemeColor = 5
Case "Women"
Me.Tab.ThemeColor = 6
Case Else
Me.Tab.ThemeColor = 2

Link To Another Cell
I would like to have a link in a merged set of cells that puts the insertion point to another cell. Scenario: In cell k30, the user puts in the amount of credit card debt a individual has, and scripts the user based on that information. Later on, they get a more accurate running total of the amount of debt and need to change the amount in k30 for an accurate quote. After ther running total, in cell j172(a merged box for instructions) i instruct the user to be sure to enter the new total in cell K30.

1. Is there a way to put a button or a link that would put the insertion point back up to K30 automatically, but allow the user to change it themselves and not change it automatically?

Link Pop-up On Cell Select To Cell
I'm hoping to hover my mouse over a cell to display text as popup. This text is linked to a cell and is dynamic.

I'm only wanting this feature to display info (in the popup) not link to a website

Currently I've dodged my way around the issue by using a hyperlink for the sole purpose of taking advantage of its hover popup feature.

The problem is that a hyperlink popup is limited to 255 characters so i can't display much text.

Is there is any VBA code or add-in's that take advantage of the mouse cursor position to display a text popup?

Kind of like the Comment feature but for dynamic use.

Link Image To Cell
In Excel, I have a sheet for each team that I manage. Each sheet lists the team members and displays their picture below their names. Some people are on multiple teams/sheets.

I have a master list with everybody's name and picture that I copy and paste the pictures from when putting a team together. This has become a very tedious process.

Is there a way I can type the person's name on a team sheet and have their picture automatically appear below their name? I don't know if this can be done with some kind of lookup or if it will involve VB. I tried making the picture the background of an Autoshape or comment, but I could not figure out how to dynamically change the picture based on the name in a cell.

Use A Cell Value In A Address Link...
I have is a summary worksheet with two columns. One column is for Project ID number and the other is an address link to a specific cell in the worksheet corresponding to the Project ID. Perhaps the best way to explain this is by giving an example:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets[00-111.xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1

As you can see the spreadsheets are named after the Project ID number. What I would like to do, if possible, is instead of typing in the name of the spreadsheet for each project in column 2 (Balance), I could somehow reference the cell value in column 1 (Project ID). Something like this:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets["A2".xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1..........
