Macro Activated On A Time Basis.

Feb 27, 2007

I have an Excel file in which a Macro function is triggered by pressing a push-button. I need the Macro function to be executed on a time basis (say 10 sec) instead of upon an external action. Can it be done?

VBA - How To Extract A Value From Cell In Non-activated Worksheet

Mar 18, 2012

I found something similar here VBA - How to select a range in a non-activated worksheet but when I tried to "apply" it, I kept getting an error if the relevant sheet wasn't activated. My code

Code:
Dim SearchRange As Range, FindRow As Range
Dim column As String, search_string as string
column = "K"

[Code]...

What I want to do is to be able to search for a specific value in a specific column on the "Combo boxes" sheet, which isn't activated (the number of rows will never be large, thereof the hard-coded 200).

I get the impression that some sites say the relevant sheet has to be activated, others say it doesn't.

The code above works fine if the sheet is activated, otherwise it fails with error 91 on the msgbox row.

Recording Date And Time In A Cell When Another Cell Is Activated.

Nov 4, 2005

I would like to have people enter text in the cells in column A and record the Date and Time they did it in the same cells in column J.

I have tried (in cell J1) If(A1<>"", NOW(),"") but of course the problem is that it keeps updating to the present time. I tried using INT(NOW()) but that doesn't work

I know I could simply Copy and Paste Special over each cell in the J column but that seems terribly inelegant.

Can Workbook Be Activated Without Unhiding It

May 8, 2013

I have a macro that activates and copies data from a hidden workbook. The problem I'm having is that when the macro is done, the workbook is no longer hidden.

I used this code here to "re-hide" the workbook...

Code:
Windows("Macros.xlsm").Visible = False

...but now, everytime, it asks me if I want to save the changes to my workbook. I would like to copy a worksheet from this hidden workbook without having to worry about whether to save changes or not everytime I run this macro.

Step Through Works But Not When Activated

Sep 24, 2007

I have written this code to change the colour of a row of cells to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from L to F: This is the main workbook into which are pulled values from three others. I then want it to open one of the subsidiary workbooks, that feeds the information, to change the same job row to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from L to F. Then I want to save the changes and return to the main sheet: - The ActiveCell contains the Job Number.

Option Explicit
Public rw As Integer
Public Col As Integer
Public Job As String
Public JobNo As String
Public RowNo As Integer
Public wName As String
Public times As Integer
Public Pips As String
Public Nicolas As String
Public Cindys As String
Public wb

Sub FinishedinOfficeCindy()
.
rw = ActiveCell.Row
JobNo = ActiveCell
Col = ActiveCell.Column
If Col 1 Then
Check that the correct
MsgBox "Please choose the Job Number first"column is selected and
Exit SubThat the workbook is
End Ifthe correct one
If Cells(rw, 14) "Cindy" Then
MsgBox "Wrong Secretary Chosen - whoops!"
Exit Sub
End If

All works perfectly when I step through it but, when it is activated (Ctrl+Shift+C) it opens the other workbook and then seems to end? I even tried putting in delays to see if they would help but they didnt.

How do I add multiple worksheets at once after opening a new workbook? I was able to go to Insert>Workbook but it only adds one sheet at a time. I I need to add 50 woorksheets, I don't want to really click 50 times.

Create Unique List Each Time Worksheet Is Activated

Jan 13, 2008

I am getting a run time error 1004 during a copy-paste of a named range. I've read other posts and the help file and know it's related to defining an object, but I'm not clear on exactly what hasn't been defined.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()

Dim lCell As Range
Set lCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("C65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) ' find first blank cell in the column

With Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("AllDates") 'filter duplicate dates
. AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=Range( _
"E7"), Unique:=True
End With

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("Dates_Filtered").Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("lCell") ' fails on this line
Range("Dates_Filtered").Clear

Filter A List By The Criteria Selected In A Listbox, And Activated By A Command Button

Dec 14, 2009

I'm trying to Filter a list by the criteria selected in a listbox, and activated by a command button. My problem is the sort criteria. I have 11 regions, numbered 01EPS through 11EPS. Sorting by any of these criteria works just fine.

The problem is that I also want to be able to sort by ALL of the regions at once. I can do this by using a custom filter. I recorded a macro to see what the difference was, and it simply a matter of changing 01EPS to "=*EPS". However, adding that to my case list results in an error message of "Compile Error: Syntax Error".

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.

Writing Macro To Check Cell Population And Then Run Another Macro

May 14, 2014

Basically, what I'm dealing with is an inventory system. When a cell value reaches below a certain quantity, we have a cell light up with the word "YES" (under the "re-order" column). What I'd like to do is have a macro that checks to see if that cell is populated with "YES" and if it is, to run another macro (which I already have written) that sends out an email notifying us of the need to re-order.

How it would work: The person pulling out the inventory would fill out this form and click "Submit"

submitbutton.jpg

I would then have a "call" code tied to the "Submit" button that when clicked, would run the macro to check cell population and send out the email. The email code is already written and works flawlessly on it's own. I just cant seem to figure out how to write a macro that checks for cell value and then runs it (or not) based on that.

Else Range("A11").Value = (A1-0.1)
Call Macro2

Macro To Repeatedly Run Another Macro If Cell Is Greater Than Zero

May 17, 2013

I have a macro called "ResultCopyPaste". When it is run it copies and pastes some results. I have a cell C23 that counts how many more results need to be run, copied and pasted. As each result is copied and pasted the count changes. When the count gets to zero nothing else needs to be done.

I want to create a macro that will repeatedly run the "ResultCopyPaste" macro until C23 shows zero. What is the VBA code? Presumably something to do with repeating the macro if C23>0

In case it's relevant the code for the ResultCopyPaste macro is:

Sub ResultCopyPaste()
'
' ResultCopyPaste Macro

Run Macro On Double Cell Click If Cell Part Of Named Range

Feb 6, 2008

I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.

Macro That Will Highlight Cell And Four Rows To Right Based On Text In Cell

Aug 6, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where if Cell A2 says "Deposit", Rows A2-E2 would be formatted with a Blue background.

I've tried conditional formatting, but I can't built it into a Macro (I can't make it run), and it only highlights the cell that has that value. I also tried having the spreadsheet filter down to only the values I want highlighted, then highlighting all cells and un-filtering the column- this didn't work either.

It would basically say :

If (any cell in Row A) has text = "Deposit" (it needs to be exact, it can't be "containing"), set cell with the word "Deposit" and 4 cells to the right as Blue (I'm not picky about the color).
