Automate Process

Feb 22, 2007

Dont know if this is possible. I have a spreadsheet where cell A1 contains a value which is not fixed and can change daily, the value can increase and decrease. At present at each month-end I manually record the position of cell A1 at month end in cells C1 through C12 repsenting the 12 months of the year.

A1 @ 31/01/07 = 50 therefore cell C1 = 50
A1 @ 28/02/07 = 45 therefore cell C2 = 45
and so on for 12 months

what I would like to do is automate this process to automatically capture the value at month end into cells "c" and once captured, the figure to remain absolute for that cell/month and to ignore changes in Cell A1 that may subsequently occur.

Could this be done by date formula?

Excel 2007 :: Need To Automate Find / Delete Process

Jan 9, 2014

I have two spreadsheets. one contains a master list of computer names. the other contains a list of computer names to be removed from the master list (exception list).

I need to go through the master list and remove any computer names that are on the exception list- for example, if 'computer1' is in the exception list, i have to find and remove 'computer1' from the master list.

The exception list is quite long, and I want to automate this process if possible. not sure how to achieve this.

I'm using Excel 2007 Standard.

Automate A Process: Compile Error: Type Mismatch

Jul 25, 2007

I'm trying to automate a process (just like everyone else), and it doesn't seem to be working for me. I have two Excel sheets. One sheet contains errors for disk drives and the other sheet contains the serial numbers of the disk drives. Five fields exist in both sheets. These fields are B (for Bus), E (for Enclosure), D (for Disk), Bus, and Disk. (B-E-D together and Bus-Disk are two ways of naming a drive.)

The serial number sheet has all info filled in. The error sheet does not. I won't to write a macro that will compare the B-E-D fields in the error sheet to those in the serial number sheet, and then copy and paste the corresponding Bus-Disk information into the error sheet. The reason I want to do this is because the error sheet will not contain all drives and be in random order. So it needs to be able to search through all the B-E-D fields every time to pull out the correct Bus-Disk numbers/letters.

Sub Insert_Bus_and_Disk()
Set Sh1 = Worksheets(1)
Set Sh2 = Worksheets(2)
Dim CompareRange1 As Object
Dim CompareRange2 As Object
Dim CutRange As Object
Dim CopyRange As Object....................

Process Before Printing

Feb 2, 2010

I need to print a worksheet. The sheet has rows of a specific height (45) and data in one cell grows - adding comments/notes with date attached so that last one entered is displayed, the rest get shoved down.

I need to sometimes print out the sheet. However, I want to have all the notes shown so would like to (1) autofit all rows, (2) print the sheet and then (3) put all rows back to row height of 45. All this I would LIKE to have done by "trapping" the print button on the normal Print area

I have attached some code, but the sheet (1) does not print at all, (2) the code is sometimes executed twice (in debug mode followed it) and (3) sometimes does not set the row height properly either at autofit or static height.

Log Macro Process

Jun 30, 2006

I need to know if it's possible to log the process of a series of macros
either to txt file or to a Sheet, (either way won't matter but txt file would be perfect)

For example:

Sub MyMacro1 ()
End Sub

Sub MyMacro2 ()
End Sub

If this process was logged, then the log file would look something like:

Date Time : Sub MyMacro1
Date Time : End Sub
Date Time : Sub MyMacro2
Date Time : End Sub

But it would be a in text just like a log file.
Is this possible with Excel ?

The reason is because my Workbook is huge and I am forever tweaking and adjusting or fixing and I require reference points.

VBA Process For Multiple Actions

Jul 17, 2009

I have a list of petroleum accumulations with three types of data: Reservoir depth, Net Pay and Gas-oil ratio. for each accumulation, the number of reservoirs within each can vary. So I may have a accumulation with only one set of those stats, or an accumulation with 20.

I need the program to go down an alphabetized list (8000 entries long) and after every unique accumulation name average the values of the stats(which are in three separate columns) then put it in one row perhaps beginning in Column M or another sheet. So that I have a list of accumulations with the average of those stats, one entry per accumulation name.

UserForm Won't Process Because VBA Is Too Long

May 9, 2014

I have a UserForm where the user can enter figures for 143 different items which they select via a combobox drop down.

When I tested it, I hit the submit button but it says the procedure is too large!

Here is the code which is repeated 143 times but with a different row number and range each time (in red):

[Code] .......

So the next bit of code would be exactly the same except the range would be C5 and the row would be 18.

The range is always going to increase nice and easily: C5 up to C146.

The row number is a bit hit and miss.

Is there a way of significantly decreasing the size of this or will I have the break the code down into different UserForms?

Interrupting The Save Process

Oct 24, 2008

Is there a way I can interupt the save process depending upon certain conditions. For example if a particular cell contains a specific value and the user attepts to save the worksheet I would like to interupt the process asking "Do you really want to save this sheet now?" with the options to continue or abort. I think I can manage the message box or userform but don't know how to initiate it when save is selected

How To Repeat Process For Rows

Feb 18, 2013

I have a list of rows with Yes and No check boxes. Columns "T" and "U" contain the output of these checkboxes (i.e. "TRUE" or "FALSE"). At the end I have a button which I'd like to run this code. Essentially, I want to code to go through row by row and do the following:

1. Check to see if both boxes are blank or if both boxes are checked - and if so set the background color to yellow
2. Otherwise set the background color to clear

I have written the following code which accomplishes this task for Row 9. Is there an easy way to repeat this process for rows 10-15 without copying all the text and changing the row numbers?

Then, any way, say "If all the rows (i.e. 9-15) have clear background colors (which would mean that they all 'passed' the test of having exactly one and only one box checked in the row), then run another macro which I have written"?

Rem Check to see if neither box is checked or if both boxes are checked and sets background color to yellow, otherwise sets background color to clear.

If (Range("T9").Text = "") And (Range("U9").Text = "") Or (Range("T9").Text = "TRUE") And (Range("U9").Text = "TRUE") Or
(Range("T9").Text = "FALSE") And (Range("U9").Text = "FALSE") Then
Range("B9", ("G9")).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
Else: Range("B9:G9").Interior.ColorIndex = 0
End If

Process Without Having The Program Crash

Feb 7, 2007

what excel can process without having the program crash. Our company is using an old dos program to store payroll information (don't ask -they won't change it). Anyway - I have the ability to use pervasive software to pull the information into excel.

The problem here - is that the information is stored line by line. And in order for me to get useful information out of it, I need to sort those lines by date and a task code.

Here's the formula I am using.

Phantom Process With Remote VB6 Dll

Jun 21, 2008

I remoted most of my number crunching stuff to a dll.

It work fine except for a few strange things that I observed like from time to time a strange message "Error in loading DLL" even though everything works fine. This message appears only when entering the main formula in the formula, and is no problem at all in usual work.

When I investigated, I noticed in the "windows task manager" that one instance of excel remains open even after I have closed excel. This phantom excel process is maybe related to the other problem I explained above.

Instead of calling a VBA function, it creates a VB6 object from this dll and uses the methods of this object. In this way I have remoted the number crunching functionality.

The main parameter passe in this process is a reference to the original workbook. I need it because the number crunching functions need to read data from the workbook.

I made it sure to terminate the life of the object properly on both sides by ad hoc obj=Nothing statements.

Still I think that the "garbage collection" or the "terminating" is the cause of the problem.

Process Append Query Through VBA

Dec 1, 2009

I currently have a great VBA option to append records to the appropriate Access table. One problem I'm running into though is getting by the unique record number. Currently a user submits a record to a DataStorage tab which is then appended to the database. However, we would like to keep some of the old records (maybe a weeks worth: approx 100 records) on that tab in case any problems arise in the append transition. But we don't want duplicate records in the table.

Is there a way to modify the below code to kick out the duplicates and only bring in new records to the table? I will assign the table the requirement to only bring in unique new records but the code errors in Excel.

Sub RunAccessQueries_ADO()
Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim cm As ADODB.Command

dbPath = "C:Documents and SettingsUSERDesktop"
dbName = "MyAppendTest.mdb"

Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
Set cm = New ADODB.Command

With cn
.CommandTimeout = 0
.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;"
.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & dbPath & dbName
End With

With cm
.CommandText = "MyApp"
.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
.ActiveConnection = cn
End With
MsgBox ("Append Update is Complete")
End Sub

Macro Progress Bar To Show % Process Done

Oct 25, 2008

As i have a pretty "complex" macro, which takes around 20-30 minutes to do (honestly)....

I was wondering if there was a way to create a progress bar just showing me how many % it has done so for?

Or even tell me which sub routine it is up to? (but % would probably be better)

And preferably a pop-up box one?.. not one on the status bar because i have stuff updated on the status bar already...

Selection Process Finding X From Within 7 Columns

Sep 10, 2009

Hi I have a process in which I have to create a selection without bias. There are 9 categories in this selection process. The 1st and 2nd category already have code and they work differently from the rest. For the 3rd through the 8th categories I have to choose one from the 3rd category, then one from the 4th, etc. After the 8th category I start back at the 3rd and go to the 4th, ect. It ends when cell A1 reaches 30%.

Its a little difficult to explain but the process is simple enough to understand once you see it. I have attached an example of the process. I have also started the code and left explanations within the code.

Process To Combine Set Of Numbers That Have Range Of 1 To 48

Jul 20, 2012

I need a process to combine a set of numbers that have a range of 1 to 48. The set can vary. I need all possible combinations. Example:

out of the range 1 to 48, the set of numbers are (6,11,15,21,22,27,33,34,47). The numbers need to be combined into all possible combinations of subsets of 6 numbers. The criteria for combination is does not include sequencing. In other words the numbers only need to combined into 6 number sets that are in any sequence.

How To Process Non Numerical Data In Excel

May 18, 2014

how to process this non-numerical. I tried to use formulas but it wasn't fruitful. refer the table and.


[Code] ......

****The aggregate derived from the grade of the subjects , where each grade will be given a pointer and the average pointer for all four subjects will be considered as aggregate :

Pointers for grades
A =1

This is how the aggregate for Alex should be counted:
English A = 1
Maths C = 3
Science B = 2
History A = 1
*****aggregate = (1+3+2+1)/4 =1.75

The result column be showing Pass/Fail. If the student fail one of the four subjects he is considered as Fail.

Macro Stop The Delete Process

Oct 12, 2007

I am trying to speed up this macro, ive already tried turning screenupdating and calculation off, but it still takes forever, and I dont understand why.

The code is basically searching for a given string in column E. There are about 9000 lines to my sheet, which shouldnt take more than a 30 seconds to a minute to complete.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

For MY_ROWS = Range("E12000").End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
If Range("E" & MY_ROWS).Value UserForm1.ComboBox1.Value Then
Range("A" & MY_ROWS & ":E" & MY_ROWS).Delete (xlUp)
End If

Also anyone know how to add another condition to make the macro stop the delete process at lets say Range("a1:e8")?

Extra Event Runs At End Of Process

Feb 12, 2009

I have a forms based Excel application which until a few days ago has not had this problem.
When a particular process runs, the final part of the procedure is to reset a control colour to mark the process as complete, and if i step through the code, this is exactly what happens. If I then run the code without any breakpoints, it runs the afterupdate event of the code which triggered the process. As stated, this does not happen when stepping through the code, but only when there code is allowed to run. I can capture it by addin a breakpoint into the event, and seeing it trigger twice, yet if i step through each part of the process, it does not do this.
Is there something I am missing here? Has anyone had anything similar?
It's the final part of the bug fixes, and until this is resolved, I cannot release it.

Formula - Check Date Value And Process

May 9, 2006

I have software that generates an excel worksheet with data with dates. In this column of dates, there are either valid dates or dates with all zero's (00-00-00). I need to setup a formula that checks this column, if they have a valid date (anything greater than 00-00-00) then mark that row with "Contract", if hit has all zero's (00-00-00) then mark it as "CP". One thing, this column is not formatted as "Date", it is formatted as general. I didn't know if that made a difference.

Also, is there a way to setup this WHOLE column with this formula so that as soon as the data is extracted, it will automatically change the cell value to CP or Contract?

Speeding Update Process Of A Database

Jan 15, 2007

Did not want to hijack Jonny's thread about ways in which to update and streamline code to make it run faster. The update speed of my first attempt at a macro is woefully slow - 5 minutes for 2.5K records. I was wondering if some of you more knowledgeable folk could look at my code and make suggestions as to how it could be modified to run faster.

When I ctrl-break out of it I usually end up in a private sub that concatenates columns A & B in Column C (see below). When it resorts the database it must keep triggering this concatenate sub which (I think) is slowing things down.

Concatenate Private Sub:

Option Explicit

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Or IsEmpty(Target) Then Exit Sub ......................
