Customize Search Macro

Aug 17, 2006

I have utilized the search button here, but alas haven't found exactly what I am looking for. I have run into a wall and cannot seem to scale it. I am running excel 2000 and need some assistance with creating a search macro. I have a simple spreadsheet created with 3 columns and 500 rows. Column A is name, B is a given # and C is employee status. What I need the macro to do is once a user enters the employee #, it highlights and takes the user to the corresponding name (Column A). I apologize for asking a "novice" question, but i have very little experience in this side of excel.

I would like to customize the data table placing underneath the chart so I can highlight (say, in red) some of the figures that are greater than certain values for easy reference. Is there anyway I can do with it (since I got more than 800 charts) than that I can only use tools to draw a rectangle and cover that particluar cells up? or is there any ways I can link up the conditional formatting of the data itself with the chart so I can applying certain coloring on the data and reflect on the data table?

Customize ActiveX SpinButton Value - Not Decrementing (or Incrementing) Correctly

Feb 17, 2010

I have an Active X SpinButton control directly on a spreadsheet that changes the input cell. (The idea is that later on, there'll be a bunch of these input cells, accompanied by their respective SpinButton controls).

I'm allowing the user to define the Min, Max, and Step (SmallChange) value of the SpinButton because (1) I need it to do decimal points and negative numbers and (2) that's what my boss would have wanted.

So I set the Min, Max, SmallChange value in the SpinButton properties to "0" then try to manipulate them in the VBA code.

What went wrong with the code is hard to explain. But basically, when I use the SpinButton to increment or decrement, it didn't quite do it correctly. If I fix the increment part of code, then the decrement part of the code goes wrong and vice versa.

An example: I have Min as "0.5%" in cell B7; Max as "4.5%" in cell B8; and Step (SmallChange) as "0.5%" in cell B9. The Input cell is in cell B10 where user can either type in a value within the defined range (enforced by data validation) or use the SpinButton to change the value.

To replicate the problem: I type in "1.0" in the Input cell and click on the left SpinButton and it would not allow me to go to the defined lower limit (which is 0.5%) in this case.

Here are my codes:

Private Sub SpinButton1_SpinUp()

Dim MyMax As Variant
Dim MyStep As Variant
Dim MyInput As Variant

MyMax = SpinButton1.Max + Range("B8").Value
MyStep = SpinButton1.SmallChange + Range("B9").Value

MyInput = Range("B10").Value...................................

Customize And Lock A Range For Each User Who Downloads File

Feb 15, 2010

I've got an Excel file that I'll be offering for download. I'd like to customize each copy for each user as they download it from the server and am trying to figure out if this is possible & what technology I'd need to use to do so. Simply, I'd like to edit a range in a document, lock it with the built in Excel password protection, and then resave it for the user. Is it possible to write a script to do this w/o opening the file? Any ideas on what technology I'd need to use to do so (.NET framework? OWC?)?

Creating Dropdown List To Customize Worksheet Based On Country Selected

Aug 16, 2013

I have a product list where each row of the worksheet has an image, product details and suggested lists/retails for each local currency.

Some products are not available in certain countries and each market doesn't care to see the other market info. (There are hundreds of items and dozens of countries.)

How can I create a drop down selector so that a user can choose their market, i.e. "Australia," and only the rows and columns relevant to them appear?

Can this be done without macros,? This sheet is distributed among 100+ people and needs to work for lowest common denominator.

Userform To Control Macro Features. Macro = Search For File Type

Jan 26, 2009

I have a macro that I found somewhere on the net to look within a folder and list all the files of a certain file extension.

The macro to do this is in the attached example and is called 'Get_File_Names_Within_Dir_ext'.

I have created a basic userform outline, 'UF1' for the user to define:
Select File Extension
Select Folder to Search
Destination Sheet

I just don't have any idea how to sync the two.

If you type 'exe' into 'TB1_File_Extension' of 'UF1' the macro should search for '*.exe' files within the specified folder.

The search folder 'RefEdit1' box should open a windows explorer box (or some such) so that the user can select the directory in which to search for the previously specified file extension.

'TB2_Destination_Sheet' is a text box for the user to type the sheet within the workbook in which to list the files found within the specified directory.

'CB1_Find_Files' should activate the macro to find any files for the specified criteria.

There is also a Button 'Find File Types' in Sheet1 of the file which should activate the userform 'UF1'.

VBA Search For Column And Add To Macro

Mar 14, 2014

I'm trying to simplify a macro so that I don't have to manually find the column to change each time. Basically, I want the macro to search for a column that contains [alt enter], and then add that column name to the existing macro below.

I tried various "find" or "match" comands in VBA, but am unsure how to execute the command so that the result of the find/match affects the highlighted line below.


Sub Seperatefromlinebreaks()
'working for active sheet
'copy to the end of sheets collection
ActiveSheet.Copy after:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)

Macro To Search Whole Workbook?

May 8, 2014

I've had a look at various coding to create a macro to search excel.

The issue I have is several work sheets within the work book but they're always inactive unless opened. From the 1st work sheet I've got menu buttons that open a specific worksheet, then there's a button to click to take user back to 1st worksheet and close the 1 they were looking at and making it inactive.

Following code is what I use to open and close sheets:

[Code] .........

The above works fine for opening and closing.

But if I use Excel's standard CTRL + F search facility and change options to search workbook, it doesn't work because every other sheet other than 1st sheet is inactive.

How To Get A Macro To Search Another Workbook

Jul 19, 2014

I have a simple spread sheet that I made that takes the first letter of a name entered into cell (A1), combines it with the last name entered into cell (B1), and inputs that combined information into cell (E1).

It works how I need it to for the most part but... I need Excel to look at a completely separate workbook (containing four sheets), and search the entire workbook for exact matches of the combined information in (E1). If it finds a match elsewhere in that workbook I want it to add a 1 to the end of the combined name. I basically want it to increment the number until it does not find one that already exists in the other workbook.

Example: Cell (A1 contains Bob), Cell (B1 contains Smith). Currently Cell (E1 would display bsmith) - I need for Excel to search the other workbook, and if it finds a bsmith anywhere in that workbook add a 1 to the end making it (bsmith1). If it finds (bsmith1) increment it to (bsmith2) and keep going up by one number until it does not find any other matches. The other workbook is located on a mappedshared network drive.

Complicated Search Macro

Aug 20, 2007

I'm in the process of decoding a mass amount of data that will be incoming shortly. The data will be formatted as shown below. What I would like to do is have a macro that between two full seconds (for example 10:11:48:0 to 10:11:49:0) would find the mode of the RSSI values, paste that with a time value that is in the general excel format. (I.E. 10:11:48 = 0.42484). When all is said and done, what I have access to should look like the second string of posted data. I can get the time cleaned up on my own, but I'm having trouble with the loop macro that will find which cells to use for the mode.

Search And Input Macro

Nov 2, 2009

I have a document with multiple sheets that contain data for a specific date and are set up in chronological order. The last sheet(Final Sheet) has each row as a different date in a chronological range of 3 yrs and each row has 5 cells of data.

I need to write a macro that will take a 5 cell row from each sheet and place it in the correlating date/row in the Final Sheet. Each sheet is labeled as the date for which the data is from so the macro needs to match the sheet title to the date in column A of Final Sheet. Then place the 5 cells from the sheet into the correlating date/row. The macro would need to loop through and do this until it reaches the Final Sheet.
