Change Range Selection With A Variable

Feb 19, 2009

How do I change the selection of a range with a variable, and not a hardcoded number in XL2003? I have to update a set of spreadsheets every month, and it's a hassle to have to constantly open my pivot table worksheet, copy, open the summary worksheet, paste ... etc. etc. etc. The code below is my attempt at creating a ComboBox with "January, February, March, etc." and every time I select a particular month it will automatically copy data from my pivot table worksheet into my new summary worksheet in the correct column. The range of data from my pivot table worksheet will never change, so I have no problem hardcoding that in, but based on which month is selected will alter which column the data goes in in the new worksheet.

I want to be able to write code for one month (say January) and then when I want to use a different month (say February) I can just change the column number and call up the originial January code.

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Dim ColNum ' This is the variable I want to change based on which month is called
If ComboBox1.Value = "January" Then
ColNum = 1 ' Column number for Column A- Where my January column is
Elseif ComboBox1.Value = "February" Then
ColNum = 2 ' Column number for Column B- Where my February column is
' etc. etc. for each month
End If
Call January
End Sub

Private Sub January()
' Just a quick msgbox to make sure the previous macro is calling this one
MsgBox "Is this macro running?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Check"...........................

Range Selection With Variable

Jan 27, 2010

I am using Selection.ClearContents command to clear data from column F and G. I know the last row as 230 but the starting row is the first empty cell which I find using Do While loop in range F31 to F230. The variable that stores the first empty cell number is 'r'.

Range("F &r:G230").Select

Range Selection From Variable Start Point

Dec 31, 2008

I'm trying to write a bit of code that will allow me to clear some sheets. One of the sheets has formula for x number of rows, and these need to be left intact. Under these forumla there is an area where data is pasted, and this needs to be cleared becfore starting the process.

Colum A is blank, apart from cell A1 (the column heading) and another cell (variable row) with the value 'Paste here'. I've used this variable cell in other macros on the sheet as a marker, so need this to stay. I was going to use this code below, but I don't know how to tell it to select from the current active cell to the bottom of the spreadsheet.

Determine Maximum / Minimum Value And Additional Count From Variable Range Selection

Mar 25, 2014

I have been trying to determine the maximum/minimum value and additional count from a variable range which then I can use to subtract the first data of the range; I have been able to do that for a fixed range but not a variable one.

I have Column A with random positive numbers.

I have Column B with random negative numbers.

I have Column C with random numbers.

I have Column D with random numbers.

I have Column E with random 0’s and 1’s.

I have a set of 1600 cells of numerical data on each of the columns and there will be times when the random 0’s and 1’s from Column D will have appear repeatedly before changing to the opposite number, fx, I will get 7 nr. 1s before I get a 0 (zero).

I have been able to obtain the values in 2 cells within a fixed range:

If the last 8 cells in Column D have been “1” then I do:
G1=INDEX(C1:C8;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C1:C8)) ---(Which provides the first number of the range in Column C after Column D has changed from 0 in D9 to 1 in D8)

If the next 3 cells in Column D have been “0” then I do:
G9=INDEX(C9:C11;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C9:C11)) ---(Which provides the first number of this range after Column D has changed from 1 in D12 to 0 in D11)

Additional to this, the COUNT has also been challenging since I want to obtain in Column I, the COUNT of repeated 1’s from each range of 1’s in Column D; and also in Column J the same but for 0’s.

Fx:I18 (size of the range of 1’s originated from D1:D8)
J93 (size of the range of 0’s which consist to be the next range before 1’s were originated)
I12X (size of the range of 1’s which consist to be the next range before changed to 0’s)

However, that only works for a fixed range and continuous updates are made.

Variable Column Range Based On Current Selection For Sorting Columns

May 16, 2014

The first line of the code chooses the columns to select; all columns until there is no value. From there I need to have it sort those columns based on row 1. The problem is that the columns chosen are variable. It could be columns I:N (as shown below) or column G:Z or any other combination. (The code below was recorded if that matters at all.)

Run Selection Change Event Only If The Row Selection Changes

Mar 26, 2007

I'm using the following code in a worksheet:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
col = ActiveCell.Column
Range("output") = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -(col - 4)).Value
End Sub

In case it's not obvious, the macro places the value in the active row and 4th column of the worksheet into the range "output".
The problem is, the worksheet is large and somewhat slow to recalculate. This macro forces a recalc on any selection change, but i only need it to run when the row selection changes, not the column.
I'm sure there's a straightforward way to reprogram this.

Variable For Row / Column Selection

Sep 13, 2007

I need to create a macro that clears the contents of a range of cells. However, that range of cells is variable.

I know my starting cell (C9) and I know the selection goes over to column Z every time but the number of rows I want to clear after that may change.

Also, whatever that first cleared range is, I would need to skip the row below it then clear the same number of rows below that. (not entire row of course, just the ones from column C to column Z)

Variable Selection Delete

Apr 5, 2007

I have a macro that prints out schedule information for my production lines. I recorded the macro and made a few changes. What it does is print out the page header, delete about a dozen lines and then print the remainder of the schedule. Often the the remainder of the schedule is not all relevant data as production has completed orders. What i want to do is, using an input box, ask the user what worksheet row he wants the body of the schedule to start printing from. Here is what i have now.

Sub auto_open()
Workbooks.Open Filename:="S:BI-K11.xls", UpdateLinks:=3
Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-3
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
Selection.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True
roww = InputBox("Rows")
Sheet1.Range("A1").Resize(roww + 10, 2).PrintOut

Workbooks.Open Filename:="S:BI-K21.xls"

is where i would like the number 13 to represent the input box variable so that the rows to be deleted would be from 7 to "last row to be deleted - 1"

Put Print Dialog Box Selection Into A Variable

Jan 16, 2012

Is there a way to have the print dialog box come up, make a selection, and put that selection into a variable?




brings up the print dialog. I need to be able to select the printer and have the selected printer put into a variable in my vba code.

I have tried Ex: w=Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPrint).Show, but all I get is w=true

The reason I need it is because I will be printing via vba code, but the printer may vary for different print jobs.

Hide Rows With Variable Text Based On Dropdown Selection

Jun 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet which contains our fleet information covering many vehicles in one list. The teams for these vehicles are listed in Column A. What I would like to have is:

A dropdown box to pick from All, or the various teams in A1To hide every row that doesn't match the selection of A1To reveal every row that contains the selection for A1 at any point in column A. e.g: "*Dog Team*"

This is because something might be listed as "Moved from Dog Team" or "Dog Team, temporarily on loan", or "Dog Team V66.m"

I have taken a small sample of the data I will be working from and made a very simple drop down box which displays the pages of information for the vehicles by hiding/unhiding blocks of columns:


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$A$2" Then
If Range("A2") = "MOT/Service" Then
ActiveSheet.Columns("A:P").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
ActiveSheet.Columns("Q:CE").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
ElseIf Range("A2") = "Contact Details" Then


But because there is also filters on the sheet, meaning the positions of the entries based on rows can change, I need it to search for the "*xyzzy*" method, but am unsure how to do this! While just using the Filters will work, due to some human limitations I have been asked to have a specific drop down box in a very specific location with instructions next to it.

Change Selection With VBA

Nov 27, 2008

My user wants to change it so that, when the word "Triang" is selected from a dropdown box on each line the formatting goes back to none......or ClearFormats.

Can this be done with a Worksheet_selectionChange or similar.
I can't even get my head around this at the moment.
What the user is saying is, if the Formats haven't been cleared on certain lines, the user of the sheet hasn't addressed the needs for that particular line.

For r = lrow To 15 Step -1
If Range("M" & r).Value "" = True Then
Range("N" & r).Value = "Triang"
Range("N" & r).Interior.Color = vbRed
Range("V" & r).Value = "Triang"
Range("V" & r).Interior.Color = vbRed
End If
Next r

Selection Change

I'm trying to write some code where if the user hits the Enter key on a particular cell an input box pops up. At the moment I've got some code that activates the input box whenever the user selects or scrolls over the cell. The problem is that the cell is a protected cell (as it has a formula in it) so double-clicking isn't an option.....

String Variable To Call Defined Range Variable

Nov 10, 2006

Say you define a public range variable called Inputworksheet and you set it to refer to the worksheet called Inputworksheet. You have a separate string variable with the value Inputworksheet. How do you get this string variable value to call/control the range variable Inputworksheet?

I am getting an excel worksheet value from a lookup function that corresponds to the name of a VBA range variable. Once I have this worksheet value, I would like to use the range variable that has the same name as the worksheet value.

How To Activate Selection Change Command

Oct 21, 2011

I am having some difficulty working out how to activate the SelectionChange command if the user changes a cell in a particular column. Based on the fact that the column number may change the constant in this column will be that on row 7 the name will be "Fund Size".

Therefore my question is how do I get VBA to run my code if a user changes a cell in the "Fund Size" column...and underneath the "Fund Size" header (i.e. row 8 or greater).

Change Cell Selection Color

Jan 11, 2007

I just loaded 2007, and among the things driving me nuts is I can't figure out how to change the color of highlighted cells that I have selected. The default color is so close to the normal background color(White) that it is difficult for me to distinguish between selected cells and unselected cells.

I've tried the built in help but couldn't seem to search for the right phrase to bring up a relevant answer. I've had the same problem when trying google and Microsoft's office 2007 help site. I also searched the forum before posting and came up blank.

Change Row Color Based On Drop Down Selection?

How do I change the color of a row, based on the users selection from a drop down box in that row? I have four driving types in my drop down , Towing - Town Driving - All highway - Mixed. I would like each driving type, if selected, to change the color of the entire Row of Data to a different color. I have been able to use conditional formating to change the drop down cell itself, but that is it.

Screen Flickers On Selection Change Event?

Mar 9, 2012

My screen flickers when I use the following code.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Application.EnableEvents = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Dim WTH As Long
If Target.Row = 19 Then
WTH = 1
End If
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
If I comment out the code, my screen doesn't flicker.

In the "Tmp = 1" line I was using the special cells method to color constants red (without selecting anything). When I use that code instead of the "Tmp=1" line, it takes about a second to change cells, and I see the "4 Processors Calculating Message" in Excel when the code fires--even if it's not in row 19.

I have an excel sheet where I can enter a text into A4, when this is valid a checkbox1 will appear if there is no value then the checkbox is invisible.

I have used a macro 'worksheet selection change' to do this but unfortunately I can only use this once in a sheet. I need to do this for upto 10 checkboxs that corrospond sequentially with text starting at A4 for checkbox1, A5 for checkbox2 etc....

The routine I have used for one check box is below. Can this be changed for multiple checkboxes?

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("A4") = isblank Then
CheckBox1.Visible = False
CheckBox1.Visible = True
