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.
I am trying to pause a macro on a protected sheet, select 2 adjacent cells (initially protected), utilize an existing drop down box to select a name from the list, copy the name from the list into the range of cells, then re-start the macro. I had no problem when there was just one name (see John Smith below). I tried to use the InputBox command but needed to actually type in the name.
I am running a macro that populates the same chart with variable data. I have approximately 40 sets of data and wish to pause or stop the macro to view one of the sets of data more closely. The pause option would be better but Stop option is acceptable
I have macros that often pause for the user to take some action -- for instance, to confirm that the correct cells are selected, or to delete something. Usually I use the "Stop" command, which opens the VBA editor; when I finish doing the manual action, I just resume the macro.
When writing macros for actual users, I'd like to do the same thing without their having to deal with the VBA window. Is there a way to pause and resume action and remain in the Excel window?
I've written a macro for work that will work with our billing process. After part of it has run, I'd like to pause it for the user to check a column for errors and possibly update a table to get rid of those errors, then after those errors are fixed, have the ability to continue with the rest of the code. I tried to make a message box to remind the user to look for the errors, but it wouldn't allow me to click anywhere except for on the buttons.
I would like to add a pause to the following macro so that it inserts the word CANCEL 1 second after triggering. I know I need to use the Application.Ontime function but cannot work out how to integrate it.
Code: Sub Cancel() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Sheets("Sheet1").Range("T5") = "CANCEL" Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have a workbook with several hundred row the VBA code loops through. It takes about an hour to run all the calculations. Whenever I need to pause the script I hit ESC, which works well for me, but for other users it would be nice to have a command button that halts code. Even better would be another button to resume code.
I am running a Showcase query from inside excel. I want the query to update, drop the data in excel save it and then close. The problem is that the save command is executing before the data is dropped. The Wait command pauses all processes so it won't work. Is there a way to have a minute of filler until the data is dropped so it will save?
how to interrupt VBA code, allow user modifications to a chart, and then continue the code where it left off with a click of a button. I currently have the code in place where a UserForm pops up at a specific point and tells the user to make adjustments and press OK when done. It works fine but the UserForm displays and the macro resumes when OK is clicked, but I can't figure out how to activate the chart or the spreadsheet to allow editing while that UserForm is on the screen. If only I can get excel to allow me to sleect the spreadsheet and make changes while the UserForm is on the screen, I would be set. Can anyone please help me with any options to allow editing while the UserForm is on the screen so I can edit and then click the OK when done?
I posted something similar to this over two years ago. The way I got around it at the time was to break the code into two separate subs. This time around, the code is making 17 graphs and I want to ask for editing for each one before continuing. That would be a lot of individual sections of code.
I am wanting to pause a macro to allow a user to select a cell and when the user hits enter the macro starts running again. My intention is that a user would select cell B5 or B8 or B55 and then hit enter and the cell would move 6 cells right and enter a value from the macro. The following is what I have tried and even though it allows to select a cell, it doesn't make that cell the active cell.
I have a spread sheet with a colum showing average time to complete a task. This is currently shown as Days:Hours:Minutes:Seconds (4:19:33:19). I meed it to be shown purely as minutes, or at least as hours and minutes.
I have a formula which will calculate the number of hours and minutes between two military times. I would like it to calculate the total number of minutes instead of hours and minutes. I have uploaded a small example of what i have so far.
I'm trying to convert 3786 minutes to day:hours:minutes. So divided it by 1440 which is 2.63... but I want this displayed in the worksheet as 2 days 1 hour and 3 minutes (02:01:03), I just can't seem to get it to work and it seems quite simple... but I'm missing something.... I was trying a custom format like dd:hh:mm or [d]:hh:mm and I was also trying a convert function and =day/1440+hour +minute
creating a formula for converting time data that has been created in an excel spreadsheet in minutes i.e. 516 minutes which I need to turn into Hours and Minutes i.e. 08:36 I am not experienced using Formulas, apologies if this question has been posted before, I did use the search facility to look for threads, but could not find anything related
I have a simple macro that I run when I hit "Ctr Q".
How do I ensure that this macro runs every 5 minutes automatically from the first time I hit "Ctr-Q". Currently, it only runs once and then stops.
Here's my macro for your view:
Sub Macro1() ' ' Macro1 Macro ' Macro recorded 08-09-2006 by Scott ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+q ' Range("B6").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "NOW()" Range("B6").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=NOW()" Range("A4").Select End Sub
I am trying to run a macro every 15 minutes after opening it. I did read something on here that helped me "http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/run-macro-on-time.htm", but it only seemed to refresh at 15 minutes past the hour. Not at 00:30, 00:45, or 00:00.
I have found some posts about "Auto Saving" and Dave pretty much frowns upon that. But the program I use (via ODBC), for some reason doesn't see the changes I make unless the file is saved. I have it auto-saving right now, but was thinking, maybe it is better to export a copy.
What I would need, is the ability to take my current workbook and export it to a new file (overwriting that same file each time), and do this based on time or (even better) on a change in the data. My current workbook is set to pull from other CSV files, scraping our website, etc., and then I use Excel to format the data the way I want.
It would be cool, if I could export two versions each time too... one that would be like a archive of what the file was like when it changed, the other would be the one that just gets overwritten each time.
Love this site...tons of info...but dang am I not smart at this stuff. Half the time, I don't even get where to put the code...worksheet, module, workbook?
I have a spreadsheet and a macro that creates a new sheet and enters some data into the sheet. The user gets to make some changes to the created sheet and then prints it out. I was wandering if there was any way to have a message coming up every 10 minutes remindnig the user about the new sheet untill it was printed out and then the warnings would stop. Could anyone sugest a good way to do that?
- I have 2 checkboxes and I need run macro, if one of this checkboxes are checked (if checkbox1 then run macro, if checkbox2 then run macro2) - If this checkbox is checked run macro every "xy" minutes, and this "xy" is written in cell I1 (for checkbox1) or I2 (for checkbox2)
i have a cell in a specific workbook which i intend to update it using a macro every min. but during the interval, i might look at other excel files. thus, i hope the macro of that file can run at background.
1st post. Very basic understanding of Excel / Macros / VBA but I have searched and still not quite able to get what I'm looking for.
I would like to be able to manually put in a TIME in a cell, and have a macro run at set times before that TIME e.g. something like If TIME in cell A1 =(hh:mm minus 30mins) run macro 1, If TIME in cell A1 =(hh:mm minus 5mins) run macro 2
It was suggested to me to use vba code that would constantly check the time against the system time and as soon as it is 30 mins before the time in cell A1 and the 30 mins flag in cell B1 was ‘N’ then it would run macro 1 code and set the 30 mins flag to ‘Y’ to show that macro 1 had been run.
and that this could also do the same for the 5 mins event
I have a worksheet which I am trying to format as a template which includes inputting start times and end times of work and calculating how many minutes are taken to do the job. I just can seem to find the correct formula.
