condition is true?? or if not a message is there a way to make a
message box pop up when my C3 condition of less then or equal to 10,000
is true?

Can I create a message box that displays a message when the spreadsheet is first opened?

If so, where do I put it?


Still learning VBA - I am trying to delete an entire row based on a condition in one cell in the row. Typically I would just filter on that value and delete the rows, but I am not sure if that is a possibility in VBA code. Can you provide the code if not too complex.

Select Cell A1 if value is 100 delete entire row, else skip to next row. Then loop through each row in the spreadsheet till all rows with selected cell equal to 100 are deleted.


Hello,

i've got the following problem:

I want users to double-click on a row on a protected sheet and then do some code based on the row-number of the clicked cell. I've protected the sheet because it contains a lot of formula's.

When a user double-clicks a row it triggers the code through the Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick event.
After the code is executed Excel shows a message that the cell that was clicked was protected etc etc.

How can I prevent this message from popping up?

I've already tried
Code:

application.displaywarnings = false


but that didn't work

Thanks

Hi,
I need the necessity do delete a sequence of sheets in my workbook.
If I use this code:

With ActiveWorkbook
If .Worksheets.Count >= 5 Then
For n = 5 To .Worksheets.Count
Worksheets(n).Delete
Next n
End If
End With

I receive a confirmation message box with this message:

"Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. To permanently delete the data, press Delete" [DELETE] [CANCEL]

I wish to delete all sheets without receiving any message.

Is it possible?

Many thanks in advance for your kind support.

Regards,

Giovanni


I have workbook in which I want to save a specific worksheet to a new file with only the values saved - all data in this worksheet are references to cells on another worksheet, which is using VLOOKUP to pull data from a database.

Found the following code and it gets me close, but it copies the cell references, not the values. It also allows me to specify the file name from a cell reference.

I want the new workbook file to simply be saved, not opened, and a message box to display stating where the file was saved (will always be in the same location on the LAN).

What modifications do I make to this to get this to work per above requirements?

Sub CopyMe()
Dim SaveMeAs As String
SaveMeAs = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B2").Text
Sheets("Sheet3").Copy
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\My Documents\" & SaveMeAs
End Sub


Helllo,

I have written a macro and at the end it displays a message "The macro has finished".

I would like this message box to disappear after 2 seconds automatically so that users don't have to press the OK button all the time.

can this happen ?

Is there a way I can use conditional formatting or something to change the color of the cell once I enter a value or text into that cell? For example if I currently have the A2 cell color as a gray color, and I enter information into A2 can I have it set to automatically change to no fill or any other color without having to click out of the cell, back into it, and then clicking the button?? Does that make sense??? Can someone help me?


Here's my formula... =SUM(S7)-T5

If that number is less than -100, I want it to show as blank.

Any help?

Right now, I'm trying to accomplish this by making a conditional format...meaning when my cell equals less than -100 I make the cell color and font the same (so it looks blank, but its not). When I print it, it still shows the negative value.


Thanks.


Corporate edict.

I have a worksheet that is locked and protected now, except for cells in a certain collumn. I have named the cells in that column "MS96A".

If a user enters a date in a cell or range of cells anywhere in the column, the changed cells also need to be locked and protected (Once they enter a date, it is not allowed EVER to be changed again. Corporate requirement! *Shrug*).

What I am looking for is this. If the user selects that cell again, they will get the usual pop-up message, "The cell or chart that you are trying to change is protected..."

I think I am close, but I am getting an "End If without block If" error on the If Clause.


Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim MRange As Range
Set MRange = Range("MS96A")
' If Not Intersect(Target, MRange) Is Nothing Then For Each cell In MRange Sheets("Sheet1").Unprotect Password:="temp"
cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
cell.Font.Color = vbBlack
Selection.Locked = True
Selection.FormulaHidden = False
Next cell
ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="temp", _
DrawingObjects:=False, _
Contents:=True, _
Scenarios:=False
ActiveSheet.EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
End Sub

I have an excel 2007 file sitting in a shared network folder. I only want one user to be able to make changes at a time (any other users would get a read-only). For some reason it currently does not do this, and I have multiple users with the same doc open. I'm concerned that changes will get over-written when 2 people are saving their changes. Can anyone help me with the settings for this.


Hi all

I've code some VBA code which produces an output file from a template.
Now, if I want to run the output more than once, I get an message asking if I want to overwrite the existing file (which I always do).

I've tried turning off displayalerts but it's not working.
Is there any way of turning this message off?


Hi there. I know it sound like a really simple thing but its really stumped me.

Instead of the y axis being on the left hand side, i wish for it to cut at 0,0. I have positive and negative values and I need it to be in the centre instead of on the left.

I have tried formatting both the axis and it would appear that the x axis already cuts the y axis in the right posistion so i need to format the x axis to make the y axis cut it at 0,0. I have already tried typing in 0 instead of 1 and it keeps saying it need to be number more than or equal to 1.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We have an Excel spreadsheet that sits on the network.
People need to open the file to be able to sign up for various duty rosters.
We would like for the file to open for the first person.
And then for any others after that, get a message that the file is in use
WITHOUT the option to open a read-only copy.
Our staff can't read and they keep opening additional copies of the file!
I have read about sharing the file and I don't think that would make things
any better.
Thanks,
Lynn



Hi all,

I have some formulae in A1, is it possible for cell B1 to display the value only of A1 without the link to the formulae. I dont want to have to run a macro, or paste values, more of a formula that could be assigned to cell B1 so whenever A1 is changed, so is B1 automatically.

Thanks,

Pedro.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out please?!?!

I need to have a cell on Sheet2 display the TEXT from a cell on Sheet1, is his possible??

Example:

Sheet1, Cell A1 contains a clients name and I would like to have Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4 etc... Display that clients name in a cell of my choosing (could be a different cell on each Sheet) automatically after entering it once on Sheet1, cell A1.

I thought this was possible but I can't seem to figure it out. I haven't done any real Excel work in quite a long time but I thought I had done this before a long time ago!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks in advance...

P.S. If I use autosum to do this it just displays the number 0, obviously, since it is trying to add numbers...

I uploaded a copy of the spreadsheet, What I would like to happen is have the text from Sheet1,D4 automatically be placed in Sheet2,A1 and Sheet3, B2. Hope this helps

Hello,

I'm trying to set up a basic formula to clear out unwanted cells. Basically, if the cell is not equal a number, I'd like it to be cleared of any information. I would rather not use a space, because I have text that is overlapping between cells and would like it to be legible.

Here's the basic formula:

=if(A1>0, A1, ???)

Any help would be great. Thanks!


Is there a way to make a cell populate certain text based on conditions of other cells without putting the formula in the cell you want to populate. So that someone could type other text into the cell if the conditions were not met?


I have been using Excel (XP) to make a text chart for several months. Some of
my text entries are rather lengthy. The past two weeks these lengthy entries
are showing up as pound signs (#########) when I click off the cell. I know
the text will fit in the cell, and the problem isn't solved by making the
cell bigger or using a little bit less text. I have the cells formatted as
"text" and "wrap to fit". I have printed the pages and the printed version
also has pound signs. I just want my text to show up!



Hi All,

I am trying to make excel automatically add a leading zero to values which are 5 digits long;

i.e. number input is 15185, then excel automatically changes it to 015185.

If I put a Customer Number Format of 0##### it works, however, a user could put any length of number into these cells, and if the number is less than 5 digits I don't want a leading zero.

Is there any way of writing a small macro to sort this out.

The numbers would be input into range B16:223.

Many thanks,


Andy


Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have been using excel for about 3 years. I have learned alot but still can not figure out how to make numbers add up in one box like a running total. Meaning, If I have a list and in the list is one cell for each item say like cell a1 is for a can of coke and cell a2 is for a car tire and so on,and i want to keep a running total by adding a number to cell a1 or a2 like say "3 i.e. 3 tires or cans of coke" and later that day i come back and need to add 2 more ......so i want to be able to just click on the cell a1 or a2 and enter the number 2 and the cell would add the number in it to the number im adding to it to show a result of 5 tires or whatever. I am sorry If i am not asking the question in an understandable manor but its the best way I can think to ask it.lol anyways, any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.
