Working for a dutch company and using a lot of excel and access it is sometimes a pain that when you are looking for functions. for example "left(b3;3)" in dutch is "links(b3;3)" now this is an easy one but some are hard to guess.
I wrote some neat code which condionally formats cell's in an Excel range and dependend on a value in column "Q" (= status) then sets the color of the field. it works fine
However when working with an english version of Excel I need to use "left" instead of "links"
how to check the local settings for Excel?
'Conditional Format status cell's
.Range("G4:P" & (xRcount + 3)).Interior.ColorIndex = 4
iRow = 4
iRow2 = 4
I am currently creating a massive bilingual report using Excel based on data gathered from a customer visit, as most of the engineers are non-native English speakers, and most everywhere else in the world wants reports in English. Currently I am using this roundabout method:
One Excel file with two columns that is populated with a description code and a description. The total number of lines is 30 000 and the description is on the Languages of English, Spanish and Portuguese.
I need to indicate in the third column all the descriptions that are not English.
I'm currently studying japanese and I need to make a flashcard system so that I can memorise words a lot faster. An old friend told me that it is possible to make a flashcard system in excel (or maybe Access due to its database system - I cant remember which sorry). I'm looking at a basic system that first shows me the japanese - then i click it and it reveals the english, click the english and it then moves onto the next japanese word etc etc. Though, I have no idea where to start in building such a system, my excel knowledge is not great but it I'll give anything a try
I am trying to figure out commissions with 3 different commission structures depending on type of product. So on C2 I have a drop down box with the 3 types of products. So what I would like to do is when C2 shows say "New" I want it to calculate using one formula. When "used" is selected, I want to use a different formula. And when "scratch_dent" is used, I want it to use a 3rd formula.
From a workbook, I need to open a further workbook called 'transfer' and then switch back to the original workbook. Presumably I need to save the current workbook name to a variable, open transfer with Workbooks.Open Filename:="c:debworkTRANSFER.xls" then switch back to the original
How do i pass the original workbook name to a variable, and then reactivate it. I have tried numerous options but just cannot get it to work. Do i reactivate with workbook. activate or windows.activate
I made up a small subprocedure that searches through a large list of zipcodes (These zipcodes are in a separate sheet). Whenever I execute my subprocedure in another sheet, it jumps to the zipcode sheet and then goes back to where I originally executed the subprocedure.
Is there any way that I can prevent the sheets from switching back and forth?
I'm trying to write a piece of VBA code which will switch back and forth between 2 workbooks, but I was hoping that I would not have to name both workbooks in my code.
So far I have been able to name the second file as a variable, open it and copy the data I need, but I now need to switch back to the original file. Is there any way of doing this without hard coding the file name?
I'm having a problem with how excel opens my files. Up until yesterday when I would open any of my spreadsheets they would open seperately. I would have multiple files open across my taskbar and could easily switch between files with a simple Alt-tab windows function.
Now when I open multiple excel files it opens them under "one" file so to speak. The only way to switch between files is if I go to Window>then select the file I want or minimize within excel so I can see the other spreadsheets.
I have a macro that launches another program (Windows Title - Storm). I then use sendkeys to have it export the file to an excel file. (This launches another instance of excel.) I want to be able to focus back to (Storm) so I can sendkeys to close the program down. I can get it to the end result using sendkeys, but I am trying to have it switch back to the Storm application so the user does not need to close it manually.
I have 3 workbooks open, the main WB has my command button + code in it, and the other 2 were opened up using the existing code in my main workbook.
Using general code e.g( Thisworkbook, activeworkbook, workbooks(1)), how can I activate one out of the 3?
I know the main workbook can be accessed using "thisworkbook", but when I activate it, I can't activate one of the others in my next line of code using activeworkbook.activate, or workbooks(1).activate.
Which version of excel allows you to do a Track Changes without switching to a shared workbook? I am awared the Excel 2002 version allows Track Changes on the conditioned that the workbook is switch to shared mode.
Is there a way to switch back and forth between workbooks without having to use the Activate command? I have everything planned out but this aspect is still a source of confusion. The Project: I need to have qty purchased and price in a table from Worksheet B entered into the matching customer index location in Worksheet A. Worksheet B contains customer number, sku, qty purchased and price. Worksheet A contains customer numbers in row 3 and sku's in column A. Minor data manipulation will need to be done on Worksheet B before before accessing it which I plan to do after opening it in this macro.
I am creating a code that loops through several list and Copys and paste the value in a given cell to another cell. However I would like it to do so without switching to the other tab. Additionally I also don't want to freeze the worksheet because I have a display that shows progress through a conditional formatting thing. I need it to stay on the "Rotation" tab.
Sub Roladex() Dim RegionPaste As Range Dim row As Integer, row1 As Integer, row2 As Integer
I am looking for a code that would enable switching of sheets. For example, on Sheet1 (Master Sheet) I have got Industry1 to Industry3 and the companies within the Industries are on Sheet2 to Sheet4. When someone clicks Industry1 on Sheet1, it should navigate to Sheet2 (where it gives a list of companies within the industry), and when Industry2 on Sheet1 is clicked, it should navigate to Sheet3 and so forth..
Workbook Name Changes – But Workbook Does Not For Five Seconds?? MS Office Excel 2003 / SP3 Installed. I have noticed an odd occurrence from time to time while switching between workbooks. When I switch from one workbook to another, (typically via the “Window” pull down – but the same result happens when switching workbooks on the tabs at the bottom of the screen), the “switched to” workbook name will instantly appear at the top of the application, but the actual switch to the selected workbook is delayed for several seconds, (five seconds or so).
While not a major issue, it is annoying. I suspect that it is a memory allocation issue, (I have a Duo CPU System / XP Pro / 2 GB RAM), and with that in mind I have both restated MS Excel and also performed a complete re-boot. While either option does (seem) to result in the issue being (temporally) removed from my machine, it does return. I may go for several days without this issue occurring, and then it appears for no known reason
