I have a recipe and a set of instructions on a worksheet in the cell range A1:H50 and would like to copy the whole range to a single cell as a Comment.
At the moment I select the range, copy and paste it to MS Word.
In Word, I select all and copy, then back in Excel, select cell, insert Comment then paste the text into the Comment box. Then I have to resize the Comments box. Also doing it this way loses some of the original formatting I could get round that by saving the cell range as a picture and inserting the picture in the Comments box.
Surely there has got to be a better way. Using 2007 Excel & Word
I am copying values from a range of cells in one worksheet to another worksheet in the same workbook. I am able to grab the cell values, but I am unable to copy over the cell comments at the same time.
The code I am using is below.
If Cells(5, 6) = "CompetitorA" Then Worksheets("Competitor1").Activate Range("D7:D144").Copy Worksheets("CompetitorComparison").Activate Range("F7:F14").PasteSpecial End If
Cell A1 needs to contain the contents of A3 without the user having to go and type the entry in each time the next cell along changes.
For example, let's say that last week 1.81 was typed in A2. The user then had to go in to A1 and also type 1.81. This week 1.83 has been entered in A3 so the user will manually have to go in to A1 and type 1.83. Next week when something is entered in A4, the contents of A1 will again need to match the contents of A4 and so on for the next 52 weeks. We'd like a formula in A1 that automatically shows the contents of the next cell along as soon as the content exceeds Zero.
I want to use a Login screen for a little "request-program" I made. Logging in works and when I log in as an administrator, an extra window pops up where I can add and remove new users (with pass). Users (column A) and passwords (column B) are located in a 'logins'-tab in my worksheet. Adding a new username works fine, but I don't seem to get the password next to the username. When adding a new name, the code searches for a blank cell in column A, adds the name and then sort the rows (so username and password still correspond). Usernames are filled out in a combobox (so you can select one to delete) and passwords in a textbox.
I have tried to these through formulas without success but i think i need VBA also which i am not very experienced.
I want to paste a list in the "InsertList" sheet. This list will only contain the word "Correct" or "False". From then on i need a way to search for the word "Correct" or "False" in the columnS P,Q,R,S,T,U,V.
e.g. If in the column "P" on the "InsertList" sheet the word "Correct" is found, i need that entire row from A to V to be copied onto it's destination, in this case "sheet1".
If the word "Correct" is found on the column "Q" on the "InsertList" sheet, the rows from A to V need to be copied in the Sheet2. And so on..
A single worksheet holds all the values I need to move to various worksheets in the destination workbook. The destination workbook is MASTER.XLS and is already open. The source workbook has various names.
I have the macro walking through each value in column E of the source worksheet. When a match occurs, the corresponding cell in column F has the destination worksheet name, the corresponding cell in column G has the destination cell address and column H has the destination value (string value).
I have dim statements for SheetName, CellAddr and CellVal ; all set for String. I have been playing with "Offset" as well as "Select"ing through the worksheet hierarchy to drive to the desired destination cell. All seem to be more work than necessary and none work properly.
What I am looking for is a set of macro statements that I can use as a "template" within the balance of the macro I have written. I would also happily accept recommendations about books that provide a step-by-step approach to learning the capabilities of Excel's VBA functions. I know from my limited programming background that there are many ways to do the same thing. I'd rather start with the most efficient rather than burn lots of hours experimenting.
I really appreciate help from the excel gurus and expert here on my little problem. I'm rarely using excel and have a very little knowledge on VBA programming.In short, I've been requested to develop a shift schedule for my department that can automate the shift staff schedule on the monthly basis.
I've created two worksheet of which the first worksheet is represent as master data list (INPUT Worksheet) that contain with formulas. While the other worksheet is the automated shift data (REPORT Worksheet) that linked from the master data list (INPUT Worksheet).
Attached herewith is a sample of my work. As you can see,I wanted to copy comments from the input worksheets (on DUTY column) so that it will then automatically appears or updated in the shift schedule. Whenever the dropdown selection change, the data will change accordingly. On the REPORT worksheet, each cells, range D14:AH38 are referring to DUTY column month by month. I'm able to link it but it fails to copy over the comments as well. I believe that macro can resolve this, can someone help me on this?
I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?
For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?
I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;
how to copy the contents of multiple comment boxes and paste in a single comment box.
The big picture is that I have a number of cells with numerical values in and text in comment boxes. I want to be able to click a button to copy the contents of the comment boxes and paste them, along with the numerical value from the cell, into a single comment box, ordered by highest to lowest value within the comment box, then delete the original cells and comments.
I am quite new to VBA but have been coping quite well so far with information of the web and analysing recorded macros.
I use this to read cell content, add some text/characters (ie. [ and ]) and change the properties of the complete cell
Sub COMMENT() Worksheets("DVD Lijssie").Activate If ActiveCell.Value 0 Then ' Change all in to ... ... ... ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.Value & " " & "]" & " " & "[" With ActiveCell.Font .Name = "Arial Narrow" .Size = 8 .ColorIndex = 16 End With End If End Sub HOW can I change this vba-code so it leave's the content of the cell like it is and add some content with the use of let's say TexBox1 and ONLY use different font properties for the newely added content?
Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.
Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"
I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet consisting of many worksheets (20 or so). Each of these worksheets contain detail level data regarding different projects. One of the columns in these worksheets is the 'Status' column (column F). There is conditional formatting on this column where if the text is 'G' then change background to a green color, 'Y'=yellow, 'R'=Red and 'U'=Grey.
The first worksheet is a summary sheet that I would like to pull information from each of the detail worksheet's columns B, D, E, G and H if the status column (Column F) is 'R' or 'Y'.
The number of rows in the detail worksheet can change each week (as few as 0 and as many as 100)
I have the following code in another workbook that is used to populate a cell on the same sheet based on input to cells in column 'A'.
Is it possible to modify this for the attached workbook to select a cell with data (numbers) on the Input Data sheet in column 'E', add text to the beginning, ('CG' in this case), and paste the result to the Import Template in the corresponding cell of column 'A'? I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.
I have a spreadsheet called "temp.xls" that will change file name often.
This "temp.xls" has text that needs to be copyed to a new spreadsheet named "punchlist.xls" that does not change names. I know how to acheive this using record macro but I need the text to find the next row in the punchlist.xls file. Do all the macros run on the 1st file or do both files need macros?
How, via VBA, would I add a comment from a userform (text box name: txtReason) into a cell that may already have a comment in it? I would like to keep the comment that is in the cell and then have the program add a "/" and the next comment from txtReason..
What is the best way to reference a cell in another workbook and return the cell contents and the comment on that cell. I would like the comment to come across as a comment in the new workbook becuase the comment is actually a picture.
Hope this makes sense. I did find a macro through googling but I couldn't get it to work? I don't really want to copy and paste because eventually I have hundreds of sheets & thousands of cells to refer to.?
