Calling Macros For Items In Combobox

Feb 9, 2014

I am trying to run macros for each item in combobox. These macros will insert text in a cell. The problem is that when i make a selection from combobox, save the file and reopen the file, it again runs the macro based on the value in combobox. I am getting the results twice in a cell.

I've written the following code.

Vbyesno Only Calling One Of My Selected Macros

Aug 26, 2008

I have this macro to ask the user of the form if he/she is the QC person:


If Sheet2.Cells(70, 1).Value = "x" Then
MsgBox "You Must Save to Your Own Claims Folder First (Follow Step 3)!" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"-Formbot-" & vbCrLf & "* _ *"

ElseIf Sheet2.Cells(70, 1).Value = "" Then
x = MsgBox("Are you the QC Person Today?", vbYesNo)
Select Case x
Case 6
Call Save_Network_2
Call QC_Finish
Case 7
MsgBox "email the claim to your designated QC person"
End Select
End If
End Sub
The things works, but if the user selects "yes" it only calls the first macro, "save_network_2"

Validation List Calling Macros

May 18, 2007

Newbie user of VB. I need some assistance on a project. I have a form that uses a validation list ( cell c5) to populate other cells (c6, c7, c8, h5) using Vlookup.

This part works fine. On the list is an "other" choice which I need to initiate a textbox macros which would accept user input and populate the same cells with the entered data once a cmd button is selected. Iíve tried redefining my variables as ranges or strings with the same inconclusive results. The code as it stands looks like this:

Private Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Vname As String
If Intersect(Target, Range("c5")) Is Nothing Then
'do nothing
Vname = Target.Value
If Vname = "" Then
'do nothing
If Vname = "Other" Then Newvendin.Show
End If
End If
End Sub

Using this code doesnít initiate the event.

Newvendin is the userform to enter new data only if ďotherĒ is selected. CmdEnter is the enter button on the userform with textboxes in it. Iím having a bit of trouble with itís code as well.

Private Sub cmdEnter_Click()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("OSP Parts List")
ws.Cells("c5").Value = Me.Vname.Value
ws.Cells("c6").Value = Me.Vadd1.Value
ws.Cells("c7").Value = Me.Vadd2.Value
ws.Cells("c8").Value = Me.Vcont.Value
ws.Cells("h5").Value = Me.Vphone.Value
End Sub

The Vxxxxx are the textboxes.

I get type mismatch errors using this code.

I would like it to populate the value typed into the textboxes into the indicated cells.

Final question and itís probably stupid. If you have more than one Private Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal Target As Range) sub on your worksheet, how do you change the wording on each so that it wonít cause an Ambiguous name detected error?

Calling Multiple Columns / Rows From Dropdown List

Feb 4, 2013

I have a drop down list, using data validation, calling from a range name on a different sheet($1). Works great. I see my list of choices.

What I want to do next is for another named range on another sheet($2) to be called when I select one of the options from the drop down.

So say the drop down is in I71, when I pick an option from that list it will populate (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) from a named range I have already defined on ($2).

Where would I put the (if I71=Range1, then paste this info into the (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) on $1 ?

Run Macros From Dropdown List

Sep 29, 2011

I have built a series of macros and want to be able to select from them in a drop down list. I can use a list or combo box to create the drop down list, but I am unsure how to write VBA to read the text and run the correlating macro (name of macro is identical to text shown in drop down list).

If this isn't possible, I would have to create a button for each of my 12 macros. How do I assign a macro to a button?

Combine Two Macros For Dropdown Boxes

Feb 25, 2014

I have a spreadsheet I use to track reprimands for our employees. Reprimand Counseling Spreadsheet Example.xlsm. Previously, I had to read the entire reprimand in order to determine the policy violation(s) and then manually enter those reasons into the cell. We have a new standardized form, where the manger selects the reason(s) for the reprimand. I wanted a drop down box that I could select multiple reasons for the reprimand and have all the reasons appear on the same line, as well as being able to remove a reason from the line by selecting it again (so I wouldn't have to start over, in case I selected the wrong reason). I was able to find this code, on [URL] .... to accomplish that.

Same Cell Add & Remove

I also need to be able to manual edit some of the reasons. For example "Missed Meal Period(s) #___". I will need to be able to edit that item to read "Missed Meal Period(s) #2". I was able to find this code, on the same website as the previous code, to accomplish that. However, this code includes a line break, which I do not want.

Edit Same Cell

[Code] .....

Since I need the code to work on each worksheet (CIVI - SOCR), will I have to enter the code on each worksheet or is there a better way to accomplish this? Is there a way to combine these two codes, while simultaneously removing the line break? I need to select multiple reprimand reasons in the same cell and edit the reasons, if necessary. I've read and reread that article for hours, but I can't get it to work.

Encourage Enabling Of Macros: Disable Macros When Opening Then The Worksheet Menu Bar And Other Command Bars Are Still Available

Aug 26, 2009

I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.

Enable/Disable Macros When No Macros Are Present

Jul 28, 2008

I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.

I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.

No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?

Calling One Sheet From Another

Sep 26, 2009

I am creating a set of lists, each on a different sheet. I want to have the first sheet as a sort of "Title Page" with basic information from the others. Is it possible to create a link of some types so that I could click on "Magazines" for example and go to the sheet called Magazines, or "Books" and go to the sheet called books. The latter would be very handy as this workbook has around 30 sheets in it, which is a pain to look through to find the right one.

Calling Macro From Add In

Feb 12, 2009

I have created an XLA using a blank workbook which has a macro (called CompareMan) I have written within it.

I have written a utility (called INSTALLMAN) to install this add in.

When I run the install it creates and activates the add in OK.

The install also creates a toolbar with a button to trigger the macro.
Problem is, when I click the newly created button, no matter which workbook I am currently in I get a message ...

"The macro INSTALLMAN.xls!CompareMan cannot be found".

So my question is, how do I get my button to trigger the macro in my add in?

Calling/using An Array

How can I use this array so that it calls/uses 1 profit center at the time? If I use the following code they all are used at once (P1100P1200P1300P1500P1600P1900)

Calling A Form From Add-in

Mar 13, 2012

I have a add in for excel (self made) and I recently hit a wall when trying to add functionality to it.

I have a form "UserForm1" created within the .Xlam file of the add in.

I want this form to be useable for any excel file that might be open, so putting code in the excel file that needs to use the form is undesirable.

The functions carried out by my add in are activated trough ribbon buttons.

my goal is to have a button on the ribbon that loads the form.

As the code doesn't work, I will need a alternative.

I did find the code for making the sheet show if there would be a button in the workbook, however I want all code to be in the add in.

How To Loop Instead Of Sub Calling Sub

Mar 17, 2012

I am using the following code to find the text "Employment" in any row in colum H. If found it copies it to another worksheet.

Sub CopyRowsSht8()Sheet8.SelectSet Rng = Sheet8.Range(Sheet8.Range("H1"), Sheet8.Range("H" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))For Each cell In RngIf cell.Value = "Employment" Thennum = cell.RowSheet8.Range("A" & num & ":" & "L" & num).Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Employment").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)End IfNextCall CopyRowsSht9End Sub

1. This sub calls CopyRowsSht8 and then this calls CopyRowsSht9 and so on. I have 15 sheets so how would I code this into some kind of loop to include sheets 8 to 22 instead of calling sub then sub then sub etc.

2. It takes a while to do just two sheets so 15 would be very slow - can this be made faster. The maximun number of rows containing data is only about 100 on each sheet -could that make a difference?

Calling Variables

Apr 14, 2009

The below thing has been driving me up a wall for 2 days now. I know the fix has to do with calling the variables, but I can't figure out the exact code.

Sub Parsing_Logic()
Dim IBG_URL As String
Dim A As String
A = Mid(IBG_URL, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("/200", IBGURL), 8)
Dim B As String
B = Left(IBG_URL, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("/200", IBGURL))
Dim C As String
C = Right(IBG_URL, Len(IBG_URL) - (Len(A) + Len(B)))
Dim D As String
D = Left(C, Application.WorksheetFunction.Find(".200", C))
End Sub

Function IBGLink(IBG_URL As String, Formatted_Date As String)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.IsErr(A) Then
IBGLink = (D & Formatted_Date)
Else: IBGLink = (B & Formatted_Date & D & Formatted_Date)
End If

Calling Another Macro

Aug 4, 2006

I am trying to call another macro, but instead of using the name of the macro, I have it in a variable. I am getting an error that says "Compile Error: Expected sub, Function, or Property." Can you call a macro that is in a variable? I basically have a bunch of macros created. I also have a list of the name of those macros on a worksheet in Excel. I want excel to start at the top of the list in excel and run the macro, then move down and run the next macro, and so on. Below is my code.

Sub Commercial_2005()
Dim Macroname As String
While ActiveCell.Value <> ""
Macroname = ActiveCell.Value
Workbooks("copy of recast_Report_v2.xls").Activate
Call Macroname
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

Calling A Function

May 1, 2007

I guess I just don't understand the basics of calling a function. I have the following function in a standard module:

Function CleanUp(ws As Worksheets)
ws. Range("A2:P100").ClearContents
End Function

I have this code in a worksheet module:

Sub Trying_to_call_a_function()
CleanUp (ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Month End"))
End Sub

But when I run the routine that calls the "CleanUp" function, I get the message: "Object doesn't support this property or method." I have tried changing the Function to this: CleanUp (ws as Worksheet) [instead of (ws as WorksheetS)]. Yet, this does not change anything.

Calling Columns Into Different Worksheets

Nov 4, 2008

I'm not sure whether this should be a general question or it should go in the programming section... but here here goes anyways

I need to create a spreadsheet where the contents of Col A & B in Sheet1 are copied into both Col A & B in Sheet2 & Sheet3. Sheet1 Col A&B will be continuously updated (rows will be added) and as these columns are updated, Col A & B in Sheet2 & Sheet3 should be updated automatically and keep the format that is set in Col A & B in Sheet1.

Now, Col C&D in Sheet2 & 3 will be updated by a different user. As the user updates the cells in Col C&D in Sheet2 & 3, Col C&D in Sheet1 should automatically be updated with the data in the cells of Col C&D in Sheet2 (and keep the format) and Col E&F in Sheet1 should automatically be updated with the data in the cells of Col C&D in Sheet3 (and keep the format).

Calling Non-existing Sheets

Oct 28, 2009

Currently I'm trying to set up a table that referneces sheets that don't yet exist. These sheets will be added by the user or by macro, either one. I want my table to automatically take these pages into account when they're created without having to rewrite my formulas. The problem is that when I make the call to a sheet that's not there, it opens a file open dialogue box and I don't want it to do that. Is there something I can do here about that?

I don't think it's really going to shed any light on the subject, but this is my call (from memory, not copy and paste)

IF(OR(ISERROR('P01'!N2),'P01'!N2 = ""),"",'P01'!N2)

Also, when I enter this formula and the sheet doesn't exist, it automatically reverts to a text field and I have to manually switch it back to general in which case it gives a #REF error (which is just fine).

Also, I'm writing it in Excel 2003, but it completely crashes Excel '97 if I try to open it there, how can I fix this?

Calling Routine From A Class In Add-in?

Feb 4, 2014

I've got three workbooks that end users will be using for data entry. The VBA code for the three workbooks is identical.

I'm trying to encapsulate the code into an add-in so I only have one copy of the code that I have to debug/maintain.

Furthermore, I've also encapsulated the code in the add-in into a class. The class isn't really a "usual" object modelling some data; rather, it's a utility class processing Worksheet_Change and Worksheet_Activate events. Hopefully this isn't a really bad idea, rather than keeping the code in standard modules in the add-in.

The application is called "Midas". Here are some code excerpts:


Standard Module:

[Code] ......

Class Module:

[Code] .....

And in the end user workbook:

[Code] .....

The Wbk_SheetChange event handler is triggering, but it's looking for the code in the end user workbook, instead of the class. Is there a way I can change

[Code] .....

to call the private routine "Cases_Changed" (where "Cases" is the sheetname) residing in the class instead of looking for it in the workbook?
