Type Value Into ActiveX Textbox Into Cell In Another Worksheet

May 9, 2013

I have several textboxes that are not on a userform; they reside on worksheet A. I want to format these textboxes so that they only accepts numberical values (like 500,000....no dollar sign and no cents needed). After typing in 500,000 lets say for this example, I want to paste it into a cell in worksheet B (I can actually handle this part). What iIcan't handle is:

Formatting the textboxes so that they only accept numbers (or display a message if a number is not entered) Display the 500000 as 500,000 in the textbox without the user having to enter a comma Hitting enter or tab to get the value from the textbox into the cell in worksheet B. It only pastes it into worksheet B when I click on another cell. That doesn't seem like the right way to enter data.

I am wondering if I just should have used a userform and added the controls onto it. I have 8 sets of 5 user controls; I thought this would be easier.

Refreshing Activex Textbox

Apr 6, 2009

I've built a spreadsheet with quasi-animation for a physics class on projectile motion. In it there's a animated chart showing velocity change as a function of distance. The chart has on it an ActiveX textbox that refers to a cell that contains a formula showing "V_y = {velocity}". I've tried a number of things to get the display of the textbox to change during the animation. If I break the code at the line that updates the cell referenced by the textbox the display changes. But I can't figure out how to get the display to update while the code is running.

Clear ActiveX Textbox

May 15, 2013

Is there anyway to adapt this code:

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Dim rngInput As Range
Set rngInput = Sheet1.Range("Q197:T207") '

To clear contents in Active X text boxes as well as normal cells? The text boxes lie in the Q column and I want them to be cleared as well, whenever I press 'clear' (command Button 2)

ActiveX Textbox Back Color - Transparent

Jan 14, 2012

Possible to set the BackColor of an ActiveX textbox to transparent? I have the BackStyle set to transparent, which is great since it will be transparent when not selected so you can see the color of the cell behind it, but once you select it to type in it, the BackColor overrides the cell behind it.

Right now, I have a sheet where the color of a cell changes to green if the textbox needs input from a user. If I have the BackColor set to white, the cell behind will change to green so the user knows they need to enter something in the textbox, but once they click the textbox, it goes white and may confuse them.

On the other hand, if I change the BackColor to green, it works great when the user clicks the correct textboxes, but if the user clicks the wrong textbox, it will 'incorrectly' turn green which may make the user believe they need to enter something in the textbox.

Can't Type Into Textbox

Feb 9, 2010

I have a text box I placed on top of a label. Why a label, because I am using it to make a border around a couple of textboxes. The label is on top of an image. The textboxes don't take focus so to speak, as I can't select them. Instead the label is selected.

I'm not sure if it's possilbe, but I would like it to work similar to the itunes search (if you're familiar with it) where it searchs for any occurance of the text within the list as opposed to just searching for the letters at the beginning of the word.

ActiveX Listbox On Worksheet

Sep 29, 2012

I have two listboxes on a worksheet and using VBA to load values into the listbox. I also have a combobox that is used to determine what values are to be displayed in the listboxes. I select a value from the dropdown list and depending on the value selected, a list gets populated in the listbox. This works just fine.

The problem I'm having is that when I adjust the zoom on the worksheet, 75% for example, the listbox automatically changes the width when new values are displayed. I try using the listbox1.width = xxx, to keep the width in place, but that doesn't really work.

Use Activex Combobox In The Worksheet

Jan 5, 2008

successfully use Activex combobox on the worksheet, (excel 2003)
without the code from other boxes being triggered at random.

Or should I give this up, and use a form to house these controls? ( I have no Knowledge on this)

I've tried certain IF then statements to protect the excecutable, but it seems, that, even boxes in other books are looked at, with a simple call statement (to a macro in module)

Having a real problem in Isolating these things.

Try to get the code to activate when you select the same Item twice, It seems none of the procedures do this. I made a workaround with using two procedures, but it's a bit clumsy.

Programmatically Create ActiveX Worksheet Controls

Apr 2, 2008

I created a macro to create command buttons on sheet 1 of my worksheet. The created buttons using oleobject and class type: forms.commandbutton1, creates an object with no properties on the sheet (i.e. if you right click on it excel thinks it's an object and not a control.) Is there a way to create it as a control?

Return 2 Names Of ActiveX Worksheet Command Buttons

Feb 22, 2008

On a worksheet, I have several commandbuttons. For many of the buttons the name in the "name box" is different than the name in the "(name)" field under Properties.

Researching this, I found this on msdn2.microsoft.com:

An ActiveX control on a sheet has two names: the name of the shape that contains the control, which you can see in the Name box when you view the sheet, and the code name for the control, which you can see in the cell to the right of (Name) in the Properties window. When you first add a control to a sheet, the shape name and code name match. However, if you change either the shape name or code name, the other isn't automatically changed to match.

So, in my case, one button has:
In the name box: "CommandButton5"
In the (name) properties field: "RunProcess"

The real problem arises when I'm using code to loop through the objects on the worksheet, and build an array of the object names. I'm trying to match the name of the buttons to their click events. In the code, "btn.name" returns the name found in the "name box". The one that I want is the name in the "(name)" field under properties because this is the one that matches the click event.

How can I determine, in code, what is entered in the "(name)" field for an object?

Transferring Date Form Userform Textbox To Cell In Worksheet?

Jan 26, 2014

I have a userform with numerous text boxes. One textbox is used to input a date with the following code

[Code] .....

When I have completed my userform I want to export this date as a date into range(a2) so I can then use the filter function to filter by month or year. THe problem I am having at the mo is that in the userform it is formatted as dd mm yy, but when I export it from userform it changes to mm,dd,yy. So if I entered 12th January 2014 it changes it to 1st December 2014.

A workaround is to export as text but then I use the filter by month year function so would prefer to avoid this.

Macro Used Textbox In Worksheet Rather Than Cell Reference As Criteria To Find Matches

Sep 26, 2013

This is a continuation of thread 182629 [URL] ....

The End User wanted originally to type characters into cell C1 of a worksheet that the macro searched for in another worksheet, copying across every row containing the input.

The responses gave me the following code which worked perfectly:

With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & .[c1].Value & "*"
End With
If myFind = "*" & "" & "*" Then Exit Sub

Unfortunately, the user NOW wants a Text Box instead of putting the characters into a cell.

I added a textbox (originally called 'TextBox2' but renamed "Choice") and "Dimed" CHOICE As Range.

Then tried the following code:

With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & CHOICE & "*"
End With

But it generates a "RunTime Error 91" - Object variable or With block variable not set.

Excel 2007 :: ActiveX Controls Command Button Opening Worksheet In Same Workbook

Feb 6, 2014

I have a workbook with two worksheets, "Main" and "Control".

Both of them are with hidden tabs (unchecked "show sheet tabs").

On worksheet "Main" I have command button which opens worksheet "Control".

The assigned makro is: Sheets("Control").Select

The problem is: when I open "Control" and close after that the workbook, the next time when I open the workbook "Control" pops-up instead of "Main" even though I do not save it.

1. I need macro on "Main" which will allow me to open "Control".

2. Regardless I "Save" or "Don't Save" "Control" when selected and workbook is closed, to open the workbook always displaying worksheet "Main".

I use Excel 2007 (at home) & 2010 (at office).

Set Textbox Control Source To Hidden Worksheet NOT Active Worksheet?

May 6, 2014

I have created an excel worksheet that will provide budgeting and estimating tools for my project managers. All data used to be manual entry and took a good while to complete. I am trying to automate the process with VBA.

I created a UserForm called InfoVerify1. On that form I have TextBox 1 - 10. When the UF opens, the boxes display project information from my worksheet called "Basis of Estimate", also known as Sheet26.

The TextBox1 ControlSource is set to "E4". When I run the macro with Sheet26 active, the proper information fills in. However, when I am on the Start page or any other worksheet and I run the macro, it tries to fill in the text boxes with E4, etc, from the active sheet. I tried changing the ControlSource to "Sheet26,E4" or any combo thereof with only error messages.

how to get it to refer to a cell on a particular worksheet and hold to that worksheet no matter which sheet I am on at the time I run the Userform?

Lookup Type Formula For Column AB In The (worksheet/tab) Titled 2009

I have a lookup tab which contains three columns: Column A is a tax ID #, Column B is a set of numbers and Column C is a list of street names. I need help with creating a lookup type formula for my column AB in the (worksheet/tab) titled 2009, which will look at and compare the data in columns F & G and compare them to columns B & C in my "lookup" tab and if a similar address is found based on both the street name and number then the tax ID # affiliated with that address from the "lookup tab" will be automatically placed in the column AB in the 2009 tab. I hope this makes sense.

ActiveX Combobox With Dynamic Linked Cell?

Feb 4, 2012

I have a golf teetime reservation spreadsheet. For each tee time there can be up to four players names so I use 4 columns. Times are listed in rows every 10 minutes beginning 6am until 5pm for a total of 66 rows per day. I have a member/customer list that I have on a separate sheet that I've named. I am using the ActiveX combo box next to each possible entry (so 4 columns times 66 rows = 264 combo boxes). It's a little slow and takes a long time to open. I like the ActiveX combo box because it allows me to define the box format and display and it allows search/read/write capability. The idea is the customer calls, I ask what time they want and we arrive upon an available time. I ask for a last name, I click the combo box, type the first letter of the first name and then scroll if necessary to the name and click it to add the name to the time/player cell. If no name in my list we simply type it in and I'll capture it next time I refresh my customer list.

way to dynamically define the linkedcell in the properties so that instead of 264 combo boxes, I might have one combo box that I can click on and then direct my selection to the cell I want it to go into.

ActiveX Toggle Button Changes Cell Color?

Oct 5, 2012

I am creating a status board at work... Kinda like an In/out board.

I created a toggle button and using it as the persons named. I want them to be able to go to the excel sheet on our intranet. Be able to click their name (toggle button) and it change the off cell from red to white and the on cell from white to green. Then they can save the excel sheet and close out for the next person.

edit: I would also need it to go back once they click it when they leave.

I have created the active x button, but so far the only thing I can do is get the 1 cell it effects to say true/false.
