Listbox Control Source Causing Error

Oct 26, 2008

why this is causing an error upon opening the file. This workbook has a userform with a listbox (single list, single selection), and when I have the ControlSource property set it causes an error upon opening the userform (which opens when the file is opened), whereas if I do not have the ControlSource property set to anything, it seems to work fine.

Interestingly, if I set the file up to not open the userform with the file, and instead have the userform open when a worksheet control such as a command button is clicked, it doesn't seem to matter if the ControlSource property is set or not. The workbook in question is attached.

Error Handle To Return Object Causing Error

Apr 13, 2006

whether I can handle errors in a way that tells me which object caused the error?

For example if a userform has two combobox's and one causes an error, can I return to a message box containing the name of the object (combobox1 or combobox2)?

I have tried returning err.source but I am either not using it correctly or it isn't intended to be used this way.

Worksheet Listbox Causing Crash With Mouse Wheel Scroll

Aug 21, 2008

I am having problems with an Excel workbook I am working on. I have a sheet that has a number of controls added to the top of it. Two of these controls are listboxes. My problem is, if I am in the listbox navigating through it, and I accidently move the Mouse Wheel, Excel crashes and I get the usual, "Send Error Report" form.

I have seen that there are other people having this problem and that there are a number of solutions out there but my problem is a bit different. I have a few forms with listboxes on them, and while mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work, it certainly doesn't crash Excel. It only seems to happen when I have a control permanently added to the sheet. Is there any event handler for mouse wheel scrolls or anyway to disable them through VB?

Control Code Causing Other Control Code To Run

Jun 12, 2007

I have 2 macros: 1 controlled by a checkbox activex (PA_03) and the other a combobox (PA_03_rows) in a worksheet. I display the results from PA_03, and the user than then increase or decrease the number by using the combobox. But when I change the value (PA_03_rows.value = x) it causes the macro to jump to the macro.

I don't think it did initially, but it does now. According to another post, I saw it shouldn't do it! Is there something I'm just not seeing here?

Private Sub PA_03_Click()
Dim message, title, default, numberRows
Dim PA_rows As Integer
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
TakeFocusOnClick = False
ActiveSheet. Range("a15").Select
If PA_03.Value = True Then Goto Unhide:
If PA_03.Value = False Then Goto Hide:

message = "Enter the number of input rows required (1 to 50)"
title = "Non-Featured Standard Input"
default = "1"

Deleting Rows Is Causing Error Message

Mar 12, 2014

A large Excel file that I have been working with for months is now giving me trouble.

When I tried to delete 2 rows, it displayed a message: "Excel cannot complete this task with avail resources. Choose less data or close other applications."

I opened a previously saved version of the file and tried deleting rows, and the same message came up.

I shut down the computer, rebooted, same problem.

Any way to determine if a file has been corrupted .... or even worse ... is there a possibility that my Excel program itself is corrupted?

VBA / Word Picture Content Control Causing Unreadable Content?

Jan 15, 2013

I am using VBA to create a word document (.docx). This word document contains plain text content controls as well as picture content controls. I then use VBA to automatically select a picture based on the code below

Set oCC = Word.ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("TabPic").Item(1)
On Error GoTo TabErrorHandler
oCC.Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture Filename:="X:XFERANDREW-TDCD " & LblVL &


After the document has been closed down I try to open it again and I am told "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."

When I click details it says "Unspecified error" and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 0"

If I click ok it says "Word found unreadable content in "". Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you turst the source of this document, click Yes.

Clicking Yes opens the document with all the contents and it is now renamed to Document 1. If I click no it does not open.

Object Invoked Error Causing Excel To Crash

Jul 14, 2014

I am receiving the following error:

-2147417848 automation error the object invoked has disconnected from its clients

Unfortunately, I can't tell where the error is occurring because everytime it happens excel crashes or at least stops responding. I tried waiting it out (about 20 minutes) but no luck. the only thing I can do is force the program to shut down through the task manager.

The program is designed to pull information from (a financial site), filter the data. pull the next round of data and run the filters again. there are a total of 8 queries and i think it gets hung up during the 6th or 7th run through.

Stepping through the code does not seem practical since each query might pull as many as 300 rows of data that is evaluated in a for/next loop (thats a lot of F8s).

Cannot Set Control Source Property

Aug 31, 2007

I am trying to set a controlsource property so that when a cell on a worksheeet is changed, the label will also change. However, when I try to set the controlsource I get an error that says :

Could not set the ControlSource property. Invalid property value.

I've tried it with a label in the code,

lblUser.ControlSource = Worksheets("User List").Range("C1")

and I've tried it in the properties window of a textbox, and I cannot get either to work. I've also unprotected the sheet first, thinking that might have something to do with it.

Control Source For Text Box

Jul 14, 2006

I have a workbork for employee time keeping. I have designed an Input Box that has 15 text boxes (7 diff hour types, 2 weeks, one total box). I have everything working properly except I want to make the control source relative. When the user clicks on a name of an employee (A column), then clicks the macro button, the Input Box appears. I need the text boxes to be linked to the cells E:S on the same row as the active cell. I've tried typing in ActiveCell.Offset(0,4) and variants of it, but all are rejected. How can I link the text boxes using active cell and offset?

Hiding Sheets Causing A Runtime Error On External Data Refresh

Apr 20, 2007

I have a spreadsheet which has 3 separate external queries running from worksheet 'A'. My user enters a couple of dates in another worksheet 'B' to supply the date parameters for the query and a macro runs to refresh all of the queries and performs a few calculations.This works fine. The trouble is I don't want the user to be able to view all the data on sheet 'A' only the summary on B. My macro ends up on sheet B but whilst the query is refreshing the raw data is displayed to the user on sheet 'A'. When I hide the sheet 'A' i get a run time error '1004' Select method of worksheet class failed.

Xmlhttp Object Causing System & Runtime Error 1072896658 (c00ce56e)

Aug 23, 2007

I have just signed up to the forums as I am having a very specific problem. I have looked on google and used the search feature (on several forums!) and found very limited information that is useful to me. I am having trouble with a very simple few lines of code in a macro. The code looks like this:

Function startmarketIDs()
Dim targeturl, writerow, readrow, textmass, xmlHTTP
targeturl = ""
Set xmlHTTP = CreateObject("Microsoft.xmlHTTP")
xmlHTTP.Open "GET", targeturl, False
MsgBox xmlHTTP.StatusText
textmass = xmlHTTP.responsetext
MsgBox textmass
End Function

My problem occurs at the line "textmass = xmlHTTP.responsetext". The responsetext command is obviously causing problems because if I remove it, the code executes without error and the "xmlHTTP.statustext" says "OK". With the responsetext command left in, the code generates the following error: Run-time error '-1072896658 (c00ce56e)': System Error: -1072896658. If I change the targeturl to, the code executes fine and I get a message box (as desired) with the source code of the website displayed. Without meaning to sound like Im answering my own question (!!), perhaps there is something about the url or the way in which I am using the xmlHTTP object that is causing the issue, I wondered if someone would mind inspecting my code and perhaps pointing me in the right direction?

Listbox - Delete Source

Feb 15, 2008

I have a listbox which brings up my bets for todays horseracing. If say one of my selections is a non-runner, would I be able to add a command button to delete that selection from the source data.

The source range is "AL10:AN24". So all I would want to do is select the selection if it isn't running and click on the command button to delete the selection.

I already have code to sort the source data and would like to add this code to the new code, so once a selection has been deleted the source is also resorted.

Here is that code, in case it is needed:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Range("SYSTEMS!AL10:AN24").Sort Key1:=Range("SYSTEMS!AL27:AO41"), Order1:=xlAscending
End Sub

ComboBox Control Source Update With Multiple UserForms

Oct 12, 2006

Excel – Forms – Combo Box, cell updating.

I have a form (the main one) which accesses a second form, which accesses a third form. All forms have a combo box, control button and a text box.

The items selected in the control boxes are entered into cells (the base cells) in the spreadsheet, via “Control Source”. The text boxes access these cells and show the selected items, which are then copied to other cells via a macro on activating the control button in the main form.

The main form stays open while other items are selected and transferred. Some of the items may not be changed (reselected) as they may be common. The problem is that after a number of items have been selected and transferred, the base cells for the second and third text boxes do not update after a selection from the combo boxes, and they continue to show a previously selected item.

The problem can be solved by closing the 2nd and 3rd forms and starting again. What can I do keep the cells updating without closing the form down?

Fill Forms Control ListBox

Jul 29, 2006

I created a list box from Forms toolbar (instead from VBE). I would like to add items to this list box using VBA, but cannot find right qualifier to access this object. When I tried to use " recording macro," the code that was generated was

ActiveSheet.Shapes("List Box 7")

but if I try something like

ActiveSheet.Shapes("List Box 7").addItem "hello"

it doesn't work, because well, addItem method belongs to ListBox object, not to Shape. So if I want to add an item to this list box, how should I reference this list box so that I can call addItem() on it?

Listbox Multiselect To Control Original Cells

Oct 10, 2007

Is it possible to get the multiselection the users make in the listbox correlate directly to the original cells the rows pertain to?

the reason is I need to be able to get the users to multi select the cells they want to print and then send print commands to the documents ancd drawings located in their hyperlinks. So if there was some way to pull the Cells selections then I could work with this indefinately. I''m unsure whether this is feasable, I was thinking of putting the multiselect results into an array using the text values then doing a vlookup or something, but the original drawing register sheet doesn't have unique items just unique hyperlinks :P I cannot manipulate the physical layout of the sheet itself as other macro's are located on these sheets.

I have an issue with some unwanted items in a listbox that gets its data from a pivot table, however it only happens with the one pivot field and for three of its pivot items.

I tried following a suggestion from an earlier thread to re-create the pivot table, but it did not work.

I'd like to post the file, but its too large, even in zip format.

Show/Display Selections In MultiSelect ListBox Control

Sep 26, 2006

Ive made a worksheet with a userform and ListBox. The listbox is filled with names. If you click on the last button a msgbox with your selected names is displayed. If you select the button without a selection from the listbox a message pop ups to warn that no selection is made. If you select any name afterwards and click on the button the message still pops up unless you select the first entry from the list ("natalie") then the code is right executed. I'm struggeling with the code for several days. I wonder if by any change somebody wants to correct the code. (I've uploaded my sheet)

Set Textbox Control Source To Hidden Worksheet NOT Active Worksheet?

May 6, 2014

I have created an excel worksheet that will provide budgeting and estimating tools for my project managers. All data used to be manual entry and took a good while to complete. I am trying to automate the process with VBA.

I created a UserForm called InfoVerify1. On that form I have TextBox 1 - 10. When the UF opens, the boxes display project information from my worksheet called "Basis of Estimate", also known as Sheet26.

The TextBox1 ControlSource is set to "E4". When I run the macro with Sheet26 active, the proper information fills in. However, when I am on the Start page or any other worksheet and I run the macro, it tries to fill in the text boxes with E4, etc, from the active sheet. I tried changing the ControlSource to "Sheet26,E4" or any combo thereof with only error messages.

how to get it to refer to a cell on a particular worksheet and hold to that worksheet no matter which sheet I am on at the time I run the Userform?

Delete One Of The Source Rows I Get A #REF Error

Aug 17, 2007

I have two worksheets that directly link a range of cells on both sheets, ie: Output!a1 = Database!a1.

In this case, the Database sheet contains data that I want to manipulate by deleting entries that are defined in rows. however, when I delete one of the source rows I get a #REF error on the Output sheet.

Is there any way to avoid this so the entries will automatically shift down a row if a row has been deleted? :o

So if i were to delete row two on the source page and the data from row three moves down, that would, in turn, cause the row three data on the output page to move down one row as well.

#Value! Formula Error When Source Closed

Dec 30, 2007

I'm compiling statistics from a number of separate workbooks. When I (or more to the point - one of my staff) open the Stats Workbook the formulas show #VALUE unless the other Workbooks are opened. I want the Stats to calculate without the user having to open the other workbooks as most users won't know which ones to open.

I could generate VBA code when the workbook opens to also open the other ones but wondered if there was another solution.

Data Validation - Source Currently Evaluates To Error

Apr 28, 2014

I am currently creating a form to hold 2 drop down lists that change depending on the selection in the first one. I had never done this before and taught myself and got it to work minus one problem. As soon as I input the formula under the Data Validation the error: "The Source currently evaluates to an error. Do you want to continue?" pops up. Right now the formula works except for the last 6 options in my first drop down. When I select them nothing pops up in the 2nd drop down menu. I have double checked and triple checked that I have no spaces or anything in my LIST on worksheet 2 or any of the names are input correctly.

A7 is the first drop down - PROPOSED

B7 the second. - ITEM #

Lists and data to populate the lists are on worksheet 2 with the "List" at the bottom of worksheet 2...
