Automatically Assign Predefined Unit # In Separate Worksheet

Apr 5, 2009

I have a worksheet that logs equipment activities. Equipment may already have a standard unit # assigned to it or it may need a temporary unit # assigned for tracking. In a separate worksheet is a column of predefined temp unit #'s that can be assigned and next it is a column to place an "X" once a unit # has been assigned.

I need to write logic that, when an "X" is entered in Column F (Assign a Unit #) of the Activities worksheet, the Unit # (Column G) will automatically select the next available Temp Unit # in the Assign worksheet...and mark that Unit # as no longer available. Quite frankly, this may be more easily done with VBA, but I am not experienced in that at all. I have attached a sample worksheet showing the format of the unit # to be assigned, etc.

Locate Files Of Predefined Extension, In Predefined Location & List In Spreadsheet

Oct 22, 2008

I require a bit of code that locates where the excel file is stored - it then searches that directory folder for all file names. Any file names with an extension *.hm for example are listed in column A, while their relevant 'Dates of last Modification' are listed in Column B.

Every time the spreadsheet opens it should ask the user if he/she requires a re-search of this directory and update of any file names accordingly. NB: if a file name is deleted from the directory, the file name should remain in the spreadsheet.

Cell To Automatically Populate

Mar 26, 2008

i am working on a spreadsheet that includes a large amount of statistical numbers / records. one part includes a win / loss column and the very next column i am entering the final score for each game. to max this easier to comprehend, there are only 3 columns. 1st column lists my opponent, the 2nd lists, with just a red L for loss, or a green W for win, and the 3rd column has the final score. (my score is always first, regardless of whether i won or lost the game.)

OPP F SCORE
--------------------------------------------------
John W 23-10
Paul L 17-25
Terri W 10-7

This is what i'm searching for: (and the easiest way possible b/c i'm not familiar with macros / visual basic, etc.) ... Once i enter the score: ##-##, I would like the "F" (final outcome) cell to automatically populate either a bold red L for a loss, or a bold green W for a win. My scores are almost never 3 digits, so they would almost always be ##-##. if u need me to provide more info,

Automatically Populate Another Cell When One Is Updated?

Apr 27, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where vehicle milage is entered at the end of each month. On another sheet I have the vehicle fleet numbers and the the months along the top. What I need to happen is; when the mileage cell is updated I need the cell in the other sheet to be automatically populated, when the mileage is updated the next month I need the next cell(February)to be populated with the new milage and so on. The aim is to calculate monthly milage for each vehicle without having to enter the date at the beginning and end of the month.

Everyone I work with is completely computer illiterate and only knows how to enter the data the same way they always have(just the once at the end of the month) changing it up will only cause issues.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Code To Automatically Change Colour Shape Based On Cell Value

Mar 2, 2012

I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.

I am using excel 2010.

This is the code i am using for each shape.

Code:
If Range("n12").Value = text Then
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255)
End If

Automatically Populate Cell Based On Worksheet Name

Mar 18, 2009

I have a macro that copies data from 6 different worksheets into one summary worksheet - based on certain criteria - I need a way to note on each row of the summary sheet which worksheet it was copied from. Each worksheet is specific to a salesperson, so ideally I would like that salespersons last name to populate in column on the summary page for each line of theirs that is copied over....here is my current macro I use to copy the data: (this scrpit is repeated for each sales persons sheet - "Blankenship", "Dew", etc...)

VBA Code To Populate A Cell Automatically Whenever Another Cell Is Filled In Manually?

Mar 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 6 hidden columns (B to G). Rows 1 to 14 are frozen and have data that comes from another work book and these rows will be protected. The user will enter data from H14 to U14 and then H15 to U15 for the next row and so on down the sheet. The number of rows of data over a week is variable, a minimum of 21 rows (3 per day) but no maximum.

When the user starts entering new data in the column range H to U I would like to automatically populate the 6 hidden cells on that row with information from particular cells in protected rows 1 to 14. For example B14 would populate with the value from I4, C14 would populate with the value from I5, D14 from I6, E14 from I7 and so on whenever someone enters a value anywhere from H14 through to U14.

I can understand that a worksheet change event would be useful to do this but I guess then it wouldn't want to run every time each cell is populated so I think if it had to activate on a single cell change then the cell in column L would be best. Also, as I understand it, there can be only one block of code per sheet that operates on a worksheet change event, have I got that right? If that is the case then I assume all the code to populate the hidden cells on each row will need to be in this block of code.

Mar 2, 2010

I am trying to get a cell to automatically populate commision earned.

Commision is worked out as a percentage to gross profit and works as follows:

0-4000 = 0%
4001-8000 = 1%

Automatically Colour Code Cells

Sep 25, 2009

Is there a way to automatically conditionally format each column in each row, when either open, closed or cancelled is selecting from a drop down in the Status column. For example every cell is blank in colour, but if I select open in the drop down menu for row A2, the entire row will turn Red. Just wondered if there is a way instead of individually formatting every row separately. I would like to be able to copy the formula or whatever down the entire sheet.

Automatically Populate Dates ...

Mar 28, 2009

I've asked this similar question on another message board (the Microsoft help community), but failed to follow-up quickly enough for the support I've come here to ask for. My situation involves a spreadsheet that is used to track days worked over the course of a week. I have the days of the week listed in one row (Sun - Sat) and in the row above, a place to put the day (i.e. - 3/28). I asked for help with a macro that would allow the user to place the date into any of the cells above the days of the week, check to ensure that the corresponding day of the week is correct, and if so, populate the other remaining empty dates automatically. Below is the macro that was kindly provided. It works perfectly as long as my data is in the referenced ranges (A1:G1, etc); however, my actual data is in range L6:R6 for the dates and L7:R7 for the day of the week. (example below). I've been able to pick apart the code to understand how to change most of the macro to accept input from the different range; however, I'm unable to comprehend what I'm missing to complete the modification.

Automatically Populate Cells If Value Exists Within Range

Mar 22, 2013

I need to summarize some information from a different worksheet. Worksheet A(WS-A) is the summary and worksheet B (WS-B) is the source of information. On WS-B I have a range of values under the title "Materials" which I use to put together an estimate. This range has about 25 rows and not all of them are populated depending on the needs of the particular job.

If it matters, the Materials cells are populated by a drop down "list" from yet another worksheet. On the summary (WS-A) I want to show only the cells from WS-B that have a value in them so that if, within the Materials worksheet, there are only 6 rows that have data in them...only those 6 rows are shown on the summary worksheet.

Automatically Populate 9 Box Grid Using Excel Data

Jul 1, 2014

I'd like to automatically populate a 9 box grid using data from Excel. The number of names for each rating can be anything from 1 to 100 so the size of the grid would need to be adjustable. I would like one table for each function and grade. Attached is what I'm trying to do. In the 'example tables' sheet, I've shown how I'd like the tables to look, but with my live data the tables would be bigger so I'd like to do one table per worksheet (or possibly one function per worksheet - so 3 tables).

Automatically Populate Data To Multiple Sheets?

Dec 31, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that contains many lines of information that will constantly be added to and updated. One of the columns contains a drop down with 4 possible options. I am trying to get the data to copy to a sheet based on 1 of the 4 options selected. So for example, if Education is selected, then that row of data should also appear in the Education sheet. Same goes if one of the other options is selected.

I have seen several examples on this forum, but they are mostly macros (or formulas that don't quite apply). I am trying to use formulas so that the information is updated live so macros don't really seem to be a viable option.

I am including a sample of the spreadsheet with data on the main sheet and how I want it to look when it is transferred over to the other sheets. I had to substitute a lot of the information (with numbers or filler words) due to it being confidential.

Configuring Dates: Enter A Date In One Column, Another Column Will Automatically Populate With The 1st Of The Next Month

May 8, 2009

how to make a certain type of date automate. It's kind of hard to explain, but basically, I'd like to make it so that when I enter a date in one column, another column will automatically populate with the 1st of the next month. For example:

If I enter 4/26/2009 in the 1st column, column 2 will read: 5/1/2009
If I enter 1/19/2008 .................................................. 2/1/2008

Also, it's very important that if the FIRST date is already the first of the month, then the second column will read the same. For instance: If I enter 3/1/2009 in the first colum, the second column will ALSO read 3/1/2009.
