Macro To Compare Values In User Specified Columns And Return To Different Workbook

Feb 21, 2014

I am trying to create a macro that will compare several un-formatted workbooks and copy just what I want to a workbook of my one.

I start by having 2 different workbooks opened ("Main" and "Change") side by side like this: 1.jpg

Then i run the macro in my "Main" workbook and it should appear an Userform like it showed in the image below: 2.jpg

This is so that i can manually fill the user form with the correct columns by looking at the excel file, for example:
Ref=E3;City=G3; Data=I3.

Pressing Ok, it fill the "Main" workbook with the matching information so it and closes the "Change" workbook.

At the moment my code is in this stage:

VB:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
myfile = "C:Userssst1brgDesktopRelatorios" & TextBox1.Value
Application.Workbooks.Open Filename:=myfile
Windows.Arrange ArrangeStyle:=xlVertical

[Code] .....

But I am stuck because there isn't any error and nothing happens.

>>> Sound User Function Not Working

Oct 22, 2007

I attempted to create a user function as per the link that VBA Noob posted in this post http://www.excelforum.com/excel-worksheet-functions/619446-resolved-play-a-sound-when-a-cell-equals-a-certain-value.html

I get #Name error. I placed the wav file Applause.wav in the same folder as the workbook. What did I do wrong?. Also, assuming I get this problem sorted out, how would I represent the condition "pass" or "fail" as in cell B3 in the Alarm formula? Would it be; Alarm(B3,"Pass") or Alarm(B3,"=Pass") or something else?

Return Next Working Day

Apr 3, 2014

I think this may be impossible but what I am hoping to do is in B3 Return the date that is 3 working days before the date in B2. Working days being Monday to Friday in this case. so if the date in B2 is the 16/04/2014 3 days before this is the 13/04/2014 which is a Saturday so i would want the formula to return the 12/04/2014 which is the Friday. Is this possible?

The format for the sheet is set in stone and can't change, and therefore my macro's operate on set columns / rows amd cells.

Because the sheet is huge, im trying to figure out a way to only run the macro's that need to run and more specfically on the changed location.

The Question

I need to create a routine that on the user changing a cell, it returns the cell position (row,column), then it will call a routine i have already which decides based on the cell location, which macro to run and where.

Pause Macro And Wait For User To Click On Cell To Resume Macro?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a macro where I manually select a cell then the macro kicks in to copy and paste the contents into the Find function. From there it goes to another work sheet, clicks on a cell in column one and searches for matching cell contents. Then If false it manually goes back to the original worksheet/cell and then I input a N in the left adjacent cell. If true I enter a Y. Right now I can only run this for the specific cell the macro was recorded for. I would like to expand this.

What I would like to do create a loop in the macro that waits for my cell choice input then continues with the with the Find function. If false the macro should just loop back to the original worksheet/cell and wait for input, ie the next cell selected. However, if true a worksheet/cell is selected, a Y is input and it loops back to the original cell and waits for input.

Count Working Days Between 2 Dates, But Return A Zero If The 2 Dates Are The Same Day

Jan 15, 2009

Today I am having a very annoying problem that really has me stumped I need to work out the lag between a Due Date and Delivered Date

But as people sometimes manage to deliver on the Due Date it needs to show a zero (as in they got it in on time) but using the formula below the result is a 1 and I want a zero

Can anyone help me please? I have tried putting assorted -1s in to the formula and it looks like it might work until I copy down and find that if a person delivered one day early the result shows -3 for example!

Macro Not Working On Other Spreadsheet

Feb 7, 2014

The attached workbook contains a macro ("Transfer_Data") that copies values from one cell to another when the "Update Progress" button (near cell A3) is selected. It works perfectly fine in this workbook but when I try the same code in another workbook, which looks and operates exactly like this one, nothing happens.

Is this due to a security setting or missing code line items?

One Macro Stops Another From Working

Dec 2, 2011

I have this macro which sits in the workbook module:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Static OldRng As Range

On Error Resume Next
If Application.CutCopyMode = xlCopy Or Application.CutCopyMode = xlCut Then
OldRng.EntireColumn.FormatConditions(1).Delete
OldRng.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Delete

[Code] .......

It's used to highlight the selected/active row.

But, as soon as I run another macro, it simply stops working entirely and I'm left with a row permanently highlighted until you manually remove the conditional formatting. All formats and cell colours controlled in the other macro stop working as well. This is the other (edited for publishing) macro, which is used to send an email, and is found in a module:

Code:
Sub Send_Mail()
'this sends an email that sends a text message

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim MyButton As String
Dim strTo As String

[Code] .......

I didn't write the first macro so I'm not sure where the problem is? I'm guessing there is something in the code that is stopping it from working (i.e. running conditional formats) as soon as another macro is run? Is that was is happening?

Subtotal Not Working In Macro

Jan 15, 2009

I've got a semi-recorded macro to format a report I run, and towards the end it deals with sorting, subtotalling, formatting text etc. The main function of the macro is to split a large report into several smaller reports defined by whichever manager name appears in the relevant column. The smaller reports need subtotalling by 2 different columns so I have the following macro code :


Cells.Select
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=2, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=1, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True

For some reason this only subtotals by the second column and not the first. I tried swapping them over so GroupBy1 then GroupBy2 but it's still the same. Anyone got any ideas why this might be? I appreciate it's not the smoothest code I could use but I don't know enough about code to do any better.

Ctrl+down Not Working In Macro

Jul 22, 2009

I've got a column that auto-populates from anther column depending on what's input, and that's working fine. I also have a button set up to select and copy the auto-populated data. I just recorded myself select the top cell and hit shift+ctrl+down to select just the values that are populated. What it does, however, is selects the blank ones too. I know the counta() function would work, but I don't know how to input that into a macro.

The macro I have now is:

Sub Copy()
Range("B2").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.Copy
End Sub

The column is only 25 rows tall.

Save As Macro Not Working

I have a macro to export two worksheets and save as, but the save as part will not work, it just exports to Book1.

Ive checked the directory and everything is fine.

I want the value of a cell in one of the exported worksheet to be included in the save as name.

I'm just wondering if the code needs to somehow specify the worksheet to get the cell value from or will it default to the first worksheet. but either way my code is still not working and i can't tell why.

Should i just create a seperate macro for the save as?

IF Function Not Working For Entire Row While On Macro

May 10, 2014

I got a problem with a macro i'm working on. I got column D which contains text as "Figures", "Toys", "3DS", "PS3" etc. I also got column N where i need the macro to display "Toys" if it's a toy, figure, etc; or "Games" if it's "PS3", "PS4" etc.

I'm using the following code, to also select only blank rows (so to ignore row 1 which is table header). Problem is that the result shows only "Games".

VB:
Columns("N:N").Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-9]=""*toys*"",""Toys"",""Games"")"
