VBA - How To Extract A Value From Cell In Non-activated Worksheet
Mar 18, 2012
I found something similar here VBA - How to select a range in a non-activated worksheet but when I tried to "apply" it, I kept getting an error if the relevant sheet wasn't activated. My code
Dim SearchRange As Range, FindRow As Range
Dim column As String, search_string as string
column = "K"
What I want to do is to be able to search for a specific value in a specific column on the "Combo boxes" sheet, which isn't activated (the number of rows will never be large, thereof the hard-coded 200).
I get the impression that some sites say the relevant sheet has to be activated, others say it doesn't.
The code above works fine if the sheet is activated, otherwise it fails with error 91 on the msgbox row.
I am getting a run time error 1004 during a copy-paste of a named range. I've read other posts and the help file and know it's related to defining an object, but I'm not clear on exactly what hasn't been defined.
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Dim lCell As Range Set lCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("C65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) ' find first blank cell in the column
With Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("AllDates") 'filter duplicate dates . AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=Range( _ "E7"), Unique:=True End With
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("Dates_Filtered").Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("lCell") ' fails on this line Range("Dates_Filtered").Clear
I have a macro that activates and copies data from a hidden workbook. The problem I'm having is that when the macro is done, the workbook is no longer hidden.
I used this code here to "re-hide" the workbook...
Code: Windows("Macros.xlsm").Visible = False
...but now, everytime, it asks me if I want to save the changes to my workbook. I would like to copy a worksheet from this hidden workbook without having to worry about whether to save changes or not everytime I run this macro.
I have written this code to change the colour of a row of cells to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from “L” to “F”: This is the main workbook into which are pulled values from three others. I then want it to open one of the subsidiary workbooks, that feeds the information, to change the same job row to bright green and to change the cell contents of cell(Row, 15) from “L” to “F”. Then I want to save the changes and return to the main sheet: - The ActiveCell contains the Job Number.
Option Explicit Public rw As Integer Public Col As Integer Public Job As String Public JobNo As String Public RowNo As Integer Public wName As String Public times As Integer Public Pips As String Public Nicolas As String Public Cindys As String Public wb
Sub FinishedinOfficeCindy() . rw = ActiveCell.Row JobNo = ActiveCell Col = ActiveCell.Column If Col 1 Then Check that the correct MsgBox "Please choose the Job Number first"column is selected and Exit SubThat the workbook is End Ifthe correct one If Cells(rw, 14) "Cindy" Then MsgBox "Wrong Secretary Chosen - whoops!" Exit Sub End If
All works perfectly when I step through it but, when it is activated (Ctrl+Shift+C) it opens the other workbook and then seems to end? I even tried putting in delays to see if they would help but they didn’t.
I have a small workbook that copies 4 cells to a database list as per the code below, 2 of the fields activate a pop up calendar for date input on a button push the data is transfered to the sheet and the cells are cleared, however on the clear contents parts at the bottom of the code it reactivated the pop up calendar, is there a way of not having this pop up when clearing the contents.
How do I add multiple worksheets at once after opening a new workbook? I was able to go to Insert>Workbook but it only adds one sheet at a time. I I need to add 50 woorksheets, I don't want to really click 50 times.
Insert a new worksheet To add a single worksheet, click Worksheet on the Insert menu. To add multiple worksheets, hold down SHIFT, and then click the number of worksheet tabs you want to add in the open workbook. Then click Worksheet on the Insert menu.
When I hold down the shift button and enter 50 i get the "%" and ) sign entered on the open workbook and then I try to click worksheet from the insert tab and it is greyed out.
I have an Excel file in which a Macro function is triggered by pressing a push-button. I need the Macro function to be executed on a time basis (say 10 sec) instead of upon an external action. Can it be done?
I'm trying to Filter a list by the criteria selected in a listbox, and activated by a command button. My problem is the sort criteria. I have 11 regions, numbered 01EPS through 11EPS. Sorting by any of these criteria works just fine.
The problem is that I also want to be able to sort by ALL of the regions at once. I can do this by using a custom filter. I recorded a macro to see what the difference was, and it simply a matter of changing 01EPS to "=*EPS". However, adding that to my case list results in an error message of "Compile Error: Syntax Error".
Is there a formula to get the Name of the current Worksheet and place it in a Cell? I have a Macro that will create a list of all of the worsheets within a workbook, but it requires indexing through all worksheets. I have not found the command that returns the name of the active worksheet.
I have a spreadsheet which is an extract from another application's DB, and it's just ugly in Excel. No nice neat columns etc. Data from some tables of the other application were just dumped into cells. Some of the data I need is scattered about the worksheet in various cells. There are no seperators that are common, no common length of text strings I could use to pull every X word etc.
The one common thread I am working with here, is the the data I need to extract ALL begins with the first 4 letters, and containers a total of 8 characters. For example:
A3 - The dogs collar had the name ABCD1234 on it J9 - Today I found a dog collar at the store, and it read ABCD2345 c5 - It says ABCD3456
I'm trying to basically see if there is a way/function within excel that can go through all of the cells and extract anything that says ABCD? (and the 4 wildcards after it)
The Find all function finds them all, but trying to just extract the data ABCD? info.
Code through which I can extract the Name and father/Husband name from the following data in new Work Sheet in two column Name and Father/Husband Name
Cell A1 contain - Name : Ashok Kumar Father's Name : Raja Ram House No. : 1 Age : 60 Sex : Male Cell A2 contain - Name : Renu Gerg Husband's Name : Ashok Kumar House No. : 1 Age : 55 Sex : Female Cell A3 contain - Name : Mohd Yusuf Father's Name : Mohd Sabir House No. : 2 Age : 65 Sex : Male Cell A4 contain - Name : Rani kishwar Sultana Husband's Name : Mohd Yusuf House No. : 2 Age : 52 Sex : Female - - - Cell A55000 contain - Name : Sudesh Father's Name : PC joshi House No. : 3 Age : 39 Sex : Female
This is just a screenshot of my huge data of over 60,000 rows. Owing to the restriction of HTML Maker, I am just showing in less than 30 rows in this screenshot.
I need to extract only the UNIQUE ROWS depending upon the column called "Unique Code" to another worksheet. A particular row or a record is repeated as many as 90 times in this database. I need to extract the whole row which is unique depending upon the column C which is "Unique Code".
I have tried the Advanced Filter option a couple of times but it does not seem to work. Also, the Auto Filter option is not versatile for such amount of data.
I recently cahve been working with a lot of webpages. Documenting the pages is quite loborious and inaccurate. I recently came across a utility that would explort all of the elements, their types etc and put it into a worksheet. For the life of me, I have not been able to find it. I was wondering if anybody knows of a utility like this, or how I could write a macro to parse this info.
I am trying to create a basic order history in excel from orders generated on our limited ERP system. I have exported the data required and imported to excel, but due to the export limitations, I can only export certain fields at a time. This means that I have to create three sheets for all the data I require.
The first sheet has the bulk of the data and is now nicely collumned. However, I cannot get both the customer code and full customer name on the same sheet due to the aforementioned limitations. Sheet 1 has customer code and other data, sheet 2 has customer code plus full customer name.
I have created a collumn for the customer name on sheet 1 (A3) next to the customer code (A2)
Basically, what I am trying to get it to do is as follows: In "A3" I need to create a formula that states that if A2 contains a certain customer code, then look in sheet 2, match the code and place the full customer name for that code. Bearing in mind that we have over 395 customer codes in use, so asking for a specific code to lookup would be as time consuming as entering the codes manually.
I have a spreadsheet with company details in a worksheet. Each company details are in a new column. Like the following example:
company name company name company name
i basically need each of the bold heading in the first row of the new worksheet. Each company details will then need to be moved into a new row with the corresponding data under the correct heading column. Not all the companies have all the data for each heading it would be fine to have "none" value or blank in this case
I have a folder with an unlimited number of Excel Workbooks. Data within workbooks are in same format - 3 columns of data. I would like to extract the Data in the range (B55:B70) for every workbook, transpose the data and append by rows into one worksheet.
To be clear - I want to take data range B55:B70 from first workbook,transpose and put on first row - take data range from second workbook, transpose and put on second row, repeating for unlimited number of times...
I am now trying to get the Index worksheet to extract data from the sheets that it has indexed, for example, it returns the sheet name, but i want it also to return the value that is contained in C2 and C3. Is this possible? I have attached the code which i am using below for ease of reference.
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() Dim wSheet As Worksheet Dim l As Long l = 1 With Me .Columns(1).ClearContents .Cells(1, 1) = "INDEX" .Cells(1, 1).Name = "Index" End With For Each wSheet In Worksheets If wSheet.Name <> Me.Name Then l = l + 1 With wSheet .Range("A1").Name = "Start" & wSheet.Index...................................
I wanted to know if there is any way possible to get vba to insert a formula in a cell to each worksheet in each workbook in a folder and then using loop to extract all the info from each worksheet of each workbook in same folder into a master workbook?
Is there a way to run a macro in an open workbook when the workbook becomes activated or deactivated? So if I have workbook A open with a macro in it and workbook B open as well, can I have the macro run on workbook A when that becomes the workbook I see on my screen?
I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).
So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.
This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.
So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have
VB: ="F" & (A1)
This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.
Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)
These cells contain a time reference either in '09:30 - 16:30' format or just an 'AM/PM' format.
What I need to do is to populate column B with the part of the string that comes AFTER the times in the text (either in hh:mm format or AM/PM format)
Example 336 Data 2012 Classroom Induction 2012/08/28 09:30 - 16:30 data about this ------> data about this 336 Information about this 2013/04/04 09:00 - 13:00 Information 2 ------> Information 2 336 info CHS Suffolk 2013/05/07 PM DRC, BSE ------> DRC, BSE 364 information 2013/02/12 AM DRC, BSE ------> DRC, BSE
I cannot get this to work and cannot use Text To column as there is no character I can use to split it.
