The Board looks full of some interesting issues today.
I'm working on a workbook that hides and unhides a lot of columns depending on the month the user has selected. No problems here.
The sheets are named regionally, ie National 2008, California 2008 etc. The user is able to select the month and the year from separate combo boxes.
So when 2009 comes around I will need to rewrite many lines of code to point the VBA to the new worksheet names like National 2009, California 2009. My question is, is there a way to reference either variable worksheet names in the VBA or some other manner in which to write the code so I don't need to rewrite every year change?
I currently reference the sheets something like Sheets ("National 2008").Range("H:H").EntireColumn.Hidden=True
I have a set of worksheets (Sheet31 through Sheet49 by codename) produced by a machine in the lab. I want to create a summary sheet that references cells in those worksheets.
Rather than go through the annoyance of doing this manually 40+ times I'm working on creating a macro to populate the summary sheet for me.
This is what I have so far
For J = 31 To 49 ResultSht = SheetJ.Name Sheet1.Activate ActiveSheet.Range("A4").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).Select
It hangs up on the "SheetJ.Name" however. My objective is to be using the object SheetJ, where the object SheetJ is the codename of the results sheet I'm trying to reference (for example, in the first pass through the loop it would be Sheet31). Could someone point out my mistake in this object reference?
I have a workbook with multiple sheets. There is an overview sheet and then 14 sheets allowing for 14 days worth of schedule information. There are then 3 sheets following the 14 days to total some information. The workbook users frequently change the sheet names of the 14 sheets to reflect days of the week.
I'm creating a copy for distribution that takes the active workbook and copies the values to a new workbook. There are columns that I would like to delete from the 14 day sheets and that would be easy enough if the sheet names were never changed.
The code I'm using currently follows (my thanks to Turtle 44 for helping on that section)
Sub Copy_Visible_Sheets() Dim arr() As String Dim i As Integer Dim WB As Workbook Dim WS As Worksheet Set WB = ActiveWorkbook Application. ScreenUpdating = False
'Make sure template is saved as .xls If Not ThisWorkbook.Saved Then MsgBox "Please save this workbook before generating a Client Copy." Else
1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
I am working on a macro for excel which has a userform where the user puts in the number of samples they have, then takes them to a new userform to input the weights of the samples. I want to be able to set the sample mass variable dynamically based on the number of samples they haveÖ
spl1 spl2 spl3 . . . splx
x=number of samples
This number will be different each time so I am stumped at how to do this since I have just started in vba and do not know too much yet.
Is there a way to use formula (Sum in this particular case) across multiple sheets with sheet names having a particular criteria?
The sheet names are 5 digits but not sequential (cost centre numbers). I'm trying to find the total if the sheet name (number) falls within a particular range (e.g. 150xx-152xx, 153xx-168xx), with around 60 or so sheets in total.
I know it's possible to specify the range myself, or to add a blank sheet as a marker/guide to create a "sandwich" of the required sheets (e.g. =SUM(Start:End!A1)), but the cost centre ranges may change if they're changed so I'm trying to find a way to identify them as variables rather than requiring maintenance.
Although the layout of the sheets should not change (and so a macro might work..?) I think I'd prefer to find a formula (if possible).
Is it possible to declare n variable names dynamically in a macro? For example: Cell A2 in Sheet1 contains the number of variables to be considered in the macro (n). I would like all the variables to take names in the macro from node1 to noden using the dim statement. I tried running a for loop:
I've created a file that uses three different variable to poll up people's names that are available for the task. I've got it to work using long formulas, containing if, index, match, etc. It's working well, but I think that the spreedsheet will become difficult to maintain (delete or add people to). I'm looking for a way to simplify my code, so that it won't be as time consuming to edit.
Obviously, this doesn't work, but I want it to show a result of 14. The actual situation is much more complex, but it all comes down to being able to evaluate the text in a worksheet and recognize the variable names that are in it.
I have data spanning many files which are named with the date on which they were created (so there are 31 files for August). For example: PL080107, PL080207, PL080307, PL080407...)
I'm trying to compile all of my data into one workbook, and have the macro to append each file to a list. Now I need the macro to either OPEN each file, or ACTIVATE each file so that the rest of the Macro can grab the necessary data.
I say Open or Activate, because I can MANUALLY Open a full month's worth of files if it's easier code. If not, I would like it to open and close each workbook on its own.
I have over 7 month's worth, so opening 31 files 7 times is better than opening over 200 files individually!
I have set up a number of arrays e.g. DataSetA (1 to 100), DataSetB (1 to 100) etc.
Is it possible to use a string variable (e.g. DataIndentifier) to identify and assign values to certain arrays.
For example, under certain conditions
DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetA" and under other conditions DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetB".
Having done this, I want to assign values such as DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4 or DataIdentifier (10) = 6.2 etc.
This obviously won't work because DataIdentifier is defined as a string not an array. How do I enable the string DataIdentifier to be used as an identifier for the array I want to assign values to? Therefore if DataIdentifier is set to "DataSetA" then effectively I want something like "DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4" to assign 3.4 to the array DataSetA(1).
I am working on a customer report template that generates our customers reports and will send them out automatically.
This issue I have now is that the system that generates the raw data for these reports only lists the Customers name in a column with an entry for each line of data, the thing is though that the system has lots of variations of the customers name, even more so if that customers has different departments.
What I need to do is from this list of customer names, I need to automatically figure out what the "common" name is or main name so to speak, and then make a variable using the correct full name, which will be used later on in the code to import correct logos, and direct the reports to the correct people.
Here is a quick example of what data we get raw from the system:
Customer Name: John Build Johns Buildings Johns Ltd Building Johns Plumbing Department Glass Doors Ltd A Department of Johns Buildings Johns Building Corporation Hole In One Golf Range
This is just an example, we have thousands of clients, so the length, number of words etc can change alot. Ideally I from a list similar to that I would get a full proper result of "Johns Buildings Ltd" for example, this would then be in a variable to be used in code from then on to reference doing certain things with the reports of Johns Buildings Ltd.
You'll notice there is one name "Hole In One Golf Range" that seems to have no relation at all, this is correct, ideally I would also like to build in some error checking into the code, so that rows like that that have nothing to do with the others would get deleted.
So how would you amazing VBA gurus go about working with data like this? I'd prefer a more general answer with explainations that just straight code, as I'm sure I will have to adapt the hell out of it for it to be useful in context.
I have workbook that has several sheets within the workbook that are set up identical. Each of the sheets in the workbook are for a specific company.
As of right now I have been adding a sheet to the workbook that is an overview for what is in each sheet (the individual companies). Currently I am doing the formatting of the heading and column names manually and I pull the data from each sheet with a VLookup. I have been trying to enhance my VBA skills with coding something that will fill in the appropriate cells from worksheet to worksheet.
What I am trying to do is to populate an overview sheet with cells C24, C25, and B36 being static on each row per sheet. Then each row will be populated with cells C(36, 59, 70, 81), D(36, 59, 70, 81), F(36, 59, 70, 81), G, and H(36, 59, 70, 81). The overview sheet will have the diagram below in a ru
I am looking for a way to get a spreadsheet to automate calculations of unit costs based on variable packaging names.
I have a series of packages that are denoted by text phrases. Examples:
4/6/12 2/12/12 6/4/12 18/12 24/12
For our purposes let's say the package names above will always be in column A. Column B contains the frontline price of a case of product represented by the phrase in column A. Column C will contain the cost per unit of product - this is obtained by dividing column B by the number of each package arrangement that can be found in one case. Most of the time the number of package arrangements per case is denoted by the very first number in the package name (ie, 4/6/12 would be 4). This won't always be the case though (18/12 would be a package arrangement of 1).
I am looking for a way for the spreadsheet to do all of the following and return the results in column C: if the package name contains "4/6/12", divide column B by 4; if the package name contains "2/12/12", divide column B by 2; if the package name contains "6/4/12" divide column B by 6; if the package name contains "18/12", divide column B by 1; if the package name contains "24/12" divide column B by 24.
I am trying to create a macro so that when i save an entry the form sheet looks in the tavela master sheet to see if there is a match on the record number (in the A column) and saves there as an update if it matches and then if there is no match, saves it in the last empty row. this is a column to row copy so it has to be paste special to transpose. also i have a password on the sheet which i use to unprotect then reprotect. i have successfully done these two things separately but cannot combine them! i know not very much about visual basic code just what i have read here and so i am trying to make this code work.
I have an excel sheet which at the moment takes it name from a cell on that sheet, but what I would like to reverse if possible. How can I get the sheet to name itself from a cell. I'm sure I've been on a web page in the past with this info on it, does anyone have the link?
Iíve had a look through the forum and on some of the guides/FAQ but thanks to my ineptitude I have been unable to adapt any of the examples to my specific situation.
What Iím after is this: I need to create a summary sheet for a work book with a variable number of tabs. All I need the summary sheet to do is to make a table of the name of the tab and then cell A17. How would I go about doing this and is it possible to save this macro to my machine/all workbooks instead of just the one?
In Column A row 4 of sheet1 I have an account name, for example Sonic, and I have a sheet named the account name, Sonic. In Column B row 4, of sheet1, I would like to return the value in Column B row 3 in sheet named Sonic, or the account named sheet.
I have about 50 different account names along Column A in sheet1, and the same account name sheets opened in the same workbook. Is there a good formula or vba code that will work for all the values in Column A of sheet1 to look for the same named sheet and return the values off of that? Note: on the account sheets in Column A it says ĎAccountí for all of them.. this wasnít a mistype
I wrote the following macro to create hyperlinked Table of contents on the first sheet of a workbook. It works great unless the sheet name has a space in it, i.e. "new sheet" as opposed to "newsheet". Any way to get it to work for either/ or?
