I would like to add a Command Button that will remove a row from a database. The user will perform a search, which will find the row associated with an employee name, and click a Command Button to remove that row. How can this be done, and are there any issues that might arise from something like this (in terms of formulas)?
I'm having a problem creating a Reset All command button that will remove user entered unlocked cell values from an entire workbook save for one specific worksheet. So for example, I have five tabs labeled as "DTF", "Week 1", "Week 2", "Week 3" and "Week 4". I want one single command button (placed in the "DTF" worksheet) to remove all of the unlocked cell values from "Week 1" to "Week 4".
I am trying to develop a system to allow me select different parts from multiple sheets and then add them into a bill of material on a separate sheet.
I have written some VB script the best I can and it includes a 'commandbutton' to make it easy for the user of the workbook to use.
This is how it works:
Go to 'Step 1 - Manifold 8640' tab and highlight one of the yellow cells.Once you have selected a yellow cell, you then click the 'select' button above.The value (along with other values) are copied to the 'Smart Calc' sheet.Then you go to 'Step 2 - Gland Plate' tab, select a yellow cell, click the 'Select' button.Notice how the 'Step 2 - Gland Plate' value is entered into a different group in the 'Smart Calc' sheet - this is great................BUT
The issue I am having is:
If the user goes to 'Step 1 - Manifold 8640' tab, highlights the desired yellow cell then presses the 'Select' button twice, it will add two lines of data in the relevant 'Step 1 - Manifold 8640' section....This is ok.But when the user clicks a third time, the 'Step 1' data will overflow into the 'Step 2' section of the 'Smart Calc' tab...because the script tells the data to look for the next available line to write to. This is what I am trying to avoid!
Instead, i would like a message box to popup to indicate to the user that they cannot add anymore data into into the 'Step 1' or 'Step 2' sections of the 'Smart Calc' tab until they clear the data from within the relevant section in 'Smat Calc'.
I would like to set limits on where each 'Step 1' or 'Step 2' data is written to the 'Smart Calc' sheet (so it is within its relevant section). As you can see the script basically looks for the next available cell but this isn't really good when the data 'overflows'.
Note that you are able to highlight the yellow cells in the 'Smart Calc' tab and press the delete key, it will delete the data to clear the line. That is how i designed it to work so if the user makes a mistake they are able to just delete the relevant line and enter new data.
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.
.State = msobuttondown .State = msobuttonup
Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.
I have searched this topic but I came up with nothing regarding my exact situation.
I have 5 buttons on sheet 1. I want them to all direct me to another sheet in the same workbook. However, some buttons will contain more than one sheet.
Example: Button 1 will direct me to 4 different sheets. Is this possible?
Also, When I open the workbook, I see many sheets that I am working from but I do not want them to show up when I open the workbook. The only way to see these sheets is to click on the command buttons at the top of sheet 1.
I have a 2 worksheets. One "Projects in Process"and the other "Project Completed". when the users fill in the information in cells A4-F4 (line 4 is the starting line and it could go down as far as line 23 or a23 - f23) In Projects in Process they press a "completed Project" command button and the data in a4-f4 copies over to worksheet "Projects completed". In the next available row (starting at row 4).
I want to create a command button that will clear whatever is written in a text box. I guess for this to work it needs to select all, then clear. The command button and the text box have been created using the control toolbox.
I have created a userform with text boxes and a list box. I have a few questions. First for the list box. I got the information for my list box through the list box example sheet2!A1:A1000. Is there any easier way ? Next I would like to create a New Command button to create a new record. I decided to just do a clear all textboxes, option buttons ect.. to clear, is there an easier way ? I seem to be looping sort of way when I get to txtissue.Value = "" it than goes to txtIssue_Change()
I have a spreadsheet that automatically analyzes the last week's worth of data and then displays a table of summary data from that analysis in the range C2:G11. Each row (i.e. 2:11) represents the statistics from one of the 10 regions in the state. I then have a second "details" table which remains blank (it occupies the range C14:G20; one row for each day of the week) until an "x" is typed in Column H in the cell adjacent to a region's summary data above, e.g.
if I want to display detailed data for region 4 for the last week, I would type an "x" in cell H5; formulas in the blank "details" table then lookup information on region 4 from a larger dataset. This system works fine, but is a little clumsy (typing "x"'s and deleting previous "x"'s, etc.).
Here's what I would like:
1): A macro for this sheet that will place an "x" in the ActiveCell (only in the case that the active cell is somewhere in the range H2:H11), will remove that "x" when that cell is no longer active, and will not place more than one "x" at a time-- for instance if more than one cell is accidentally highlighted
2): Also, I would like to be able to paste the values and formatting of the "details" table (C14:G20) to a separate sheet (we'll call it Sheet2) if they're interesting, and I'd like to be able to do this with a command button. The problem is I don't know... 1: how to place a button on the sheet, 2: how to attach code to this button, 3: where to place this code (can it go in the same place as the ActiveCell macro I described earlier?).
Ideally, the code would allow me to paste an arbitrary number of these tables to Sheet2, so the code would need to be able to identify the first blank cell in Column A as the location to paste a new table when the button is clicked.
I have attached a spreadsheet example. I would like to be able to use a command button to pop up a series of questions for the user to input a value and have that value populate the directed cell.
Example from spread sheet:Click - "How many bid" button First question should be " How many for Joe" Input the number i.e. 2 The number input should go to the cell C5 in this example Next question should be "How many for John" I want to input the number 3 The number 3 should go into cell F5 How many for Jim I need to input a number The number should go to cell I5 How Many for Jerry I need to input a number The number should go to cell L5
I would also like the same function for the "How many won" button.
I have few problems with the below script. First I dont know exactly where I want the button to be placed since the data changes from week to week. Is there a way for me to place the button with in some merged cells? If so How can I merge some cells when I dont know where the data will end. I'm using this to find the last empty cell in Column "B" plus 2 cells down.
I want to insert a command button and assign a macro, I have the developers toolbar available with the controls section and on all other spreadsheets i can then select insert and choose the required button, however on the particular workbook i want to use the insert button is greyed out and not available.
i already use macros in this workbook and they work fine from keyboard shortcuts but i would like to make one of them run from a command button
Is there a simple setting somewhere which i may have turned off inadvertently previously or could the problem have anything to do with the macros themselves?
I have created a command button from the Excel 2003 from the Macros toolbar that I placed on my worksheet. I want to use this button to activate an existing macro. Currently I have no code entered for this button and the button when clicked on behaves as an object to be edited, moved, etc. How should I proceed?
