In Excel, Select Whole Row, Run Macro, End By Selecting Original Row Automatically

I have an Excel spreadsheet macro which takes off the auto-filter and then after carrying out various functions, puts the auto-filter back on again. The functions in the macro need the whole of one row to be chosen manually before running the macro. I want to end the macro by automatically highlighting the whole of the row that was orignally chosen. I assume I would need to save the address of the original ActiveCell/Row, say as a variable, and after carrying out the various functions, return to the saved address, ie: the original ActiveCell/Row. Can you give some guidance please.

Selecting First And Last Rows Excel Macro
The second part to a post that I made early involves creating a macro that will select the first and last date/time stamps from a Excel log file. In colum A there are employee names. In column B there are date/time stamps from the event log on the file server. It looks something like this

What I need the macro to do is copy the first time and last time for each employee and paste those two values to column D without any blank rows in between. So from this screen shot column D would be:

6/11/2007 8:54:48 AM
6/11/2007 8:28:03 AM
6/11/2007 8:42:36 AM
6/11/2007 8:40.02 AM
6/11/2007 8:33:27 AM
6/11/2007 8:29:39 AM

Any help would be great!

VB Macro - Selecting Multiple Columns From Excel Worksheet
I have the following bit of code that I need to expand to select multiple columns (rather than one) from an excel spreadsheet I am working in. Right now, the code is only selecting data from column B, whereas I want to select for columns B -F. I have tried the obvious things (adding "B", "C", etc) - I haven't came up with a solution that will pull the data. I'm sure I'm missing something easy - Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

How To Select A Radio Button With An Excel Macro?
I have a worksheet that does a calculation and a macro to reset the worksheet after each calculation. One of the options on the worksheet is a radio button where you select either Residential or Business. I'd like the macro that resets the worksheet to select Residential when it is run, but I have not been able to find out how to do this.

I have found that I can use Application.Run to run the macro associated with the button, but this doesn't make the button appear to be selected.

Can somebody please tell me how to select this radio button within a macro?

Thank you for your time.

VB Macro For Printing Select Worksheets In Excel
Hi there

I've got an Excel Workbook with multiple Sheets. I have a macro for printing most of the Worksheets but most of the time only a third of them hold any data and I just end up wasting a lot of paper and ink.
Does anyone have a script, or extract of, that will only print a sheet if data has been entered in one or more cells on that sheet?
Before I just printed off the sheets I needed manually but most of my colleagues ouldn't quite get the hang of that.

Any help greatly appreciated


Excel Macro - How To Select Used Cells In A Column?
solutin is in the last post

I'm trying to workaround this problem:;en-us;815277

this changes data in a selection to make it REALLY of text type, provided the cells were already text type.

If anyone knows another way to achieve the same result, that is welcome too. (convert mixed numeric and text data in the same column to only text data).

This is NOT achieved by going to Format -> Cells -> text

Although this is a required previous step for the method in the link above. The numbers are only stored as text once a space is entered before the number in the cell. We can delete the space later and the number will remain stored as text.

I need a macro to do the following: select used cells in a specific column.
I need to select column "values" but not the entire column, only the used rows (it is possible that there are empty cells in this column, that should not matter, I need to select the cells if there is a corresponding non-empty cell in column "dt")

for example:


column a | column b | dt | column x | values | column z

here i would need to select 5 cells from column values, counting title cell

I already know that changing data type is achieved with:

Selection.NumberFormat = "@"

all I need now is select the cells I want to change...

Hope anyone can help me

How Do I Select IE Option Element With No Name, Value, Or Title In An Excel Macro

I'm trying to automate webform from an Excel macro using values from Excel. I am running into a problem with a particular part that uses a Select element and several option elements that I am unsure of how to access in the macro. I know I can use the .selectedIndex property to set the option on the page but I need to be able to "read" the text display of the options into a string to compare with a value on the spreadsheet. I do not have the ability to modify the html code. I have posted the html code and the current macro code. I would be ever grateful for any assistance you all could provide.

<select size="1" name="equipmentDescription" style="position: relative; width: 357; height: 23">
<option> Item 1 </option>
<option> Item 2</option>
<option> Item 3</option>
<option> Item 4</option>


App.document.all("equipmentDescription").selectedIndex = (A # between 0 - 115)

The vba code will change the selection to the item but I need to get the text of each item to determine the number correctly because the options list changes daily.

Thanks for all your help in advance.

Keeping Original Formula After Macro Has Run
hey all,
this site has been great for me always so Im hoping I can get some help with my current problem.Its hard to explain but hopefully some kind soul can help.At the moment Im looping through columns and transferring my data values to another sheet.This is working fine.

What I want to do now,is have code within my macro that as Im looping, multiply my cell values by another cell value - then transfer my data values.I can do this ok but what Im having trouble with is not overwriting the formula that originally in my cells.

so Im thinking within my macro I need something like

fSheet.Cells(mRow, iCol).Formula = fSheet.Cells(mRow, 4).Formula & "*" & fSheet.Cells(mRow, iCol).Formula
as in set the formula = {the value I want to multiply by(which is given by the formula fSheet.Cells(mRow, 4)) * the original formula}

then at the end of my loop reset the formula to what it is originally.

sorry if this is confusing.please ask if you have further questions.

Automatically Selecting Text In RichTextBox
I want to search in a RichTextBox for a specific word, then set that word to a specific color. The problem is that I need to find a way to select that text to be able to change that color.

Dim var As Long
Dim sText as String
var = RichTextBox1.Find(sText)
If var <> -1 Then
RichTextBox1.SelColor = vbRed

Automatically Selecting An Item In ListView VB6
I've just changed over a set of information I had from a tabbed listbox to a listview because of it's ease of resizing use etc. However - I need to be able to automatically highlight an item in the list from the code. I used to be able to do this in the listbox just by the Obj.ListIndex = [number] syntax - but I can't find the property to do it. Here's what I'm doing to clear all of the selected ones in the ListView and then setting the one I want :

Public Sub SelectItem(Item As Integer)
If Item < -1 Then Item = -1
If DiaryList.ListItems.Count <> 0 Then
For a = 1 To DiaryList.ListItems.Count
DiaryList.ListItems(a).Selected = False
Next a
If Item <> -1 Then DiaryList.ListItems(Item).Selected = True
End If
End Sub

Obviously what i'm doing here is if I want to clear all Items from being Selected I call the Sub with -1 - however if I call it with an integer - I want it to clear all the others and highlight THAT item. This sets the properties right - I've checked in the Watch - but unfortunately does not show the item as being highlighted/selected in the on screen ListView. I've even tried calling DiaryList.Refresh at the end of the sub to no avail.

Any ideas?

Automatically Selecting Text Inside Textbox
I have a series of text boxes that the user can skip between by using the enter key, the user inputs data into these text boxes.

Automatically Load A Macro When A Workbook Opens
Hi all,

I've been trying to figure a way to run a macro everytime _ANY_ workbook is open. So I've tried these ways and they all fail:
1. Workbook_Open - This can be done only for a single workbook and I need the macro to be run on every workbook which is opened
2. Personal.xls - The macro has to be launched manually from the menus (Auto_Open doesn't work since there is on worksheet open at the time of execution of the procedure)
3. I've tried creating an Add-In but I couldn't see any macros displayed

So any hints are greatly appreciated. I just need to automatically execute a macro everytime a workbook is opened. Thanks a lot!

Saving Excel Workbook With New Filename Without Closing Original?
Without confusing you all with everything the workbook does I basically need to find a way in Excel VBA of saving the open workbook with a different name without using SaveAs as this closes the original workbook and I need to do this for 20 new filenames within the same macro.

The original workbook has lots of formulas and the macro deletes a lot of these before saving as a new file. I need to save the file before I remove all the formulas and then save and close the new file. After this the original workbook macro loops and repeats this process for 20 odd files.

If there is a way of opening a new workbook and copying everything from the first workbook (about 10 worksheets) across then I can do this as SaveAs will not close the original workbook.

Alternatively if there is a simple way of saving the current workbook with a new name without using SaveAs then this would be ideal.

Word Macro That Will Replace Single Characters Automatically...
... hi all. great forum you have here.
was wondering if someone could help me out... I don't know much about macro's, but I need to somehow create one that will automatically find & replace certain characters in .txt or .doc files.

we always receive documents that contain both French and German alphabetical characters. ie, ņ, Ń, ¬, …, ň etc etc. we need to make a macro that when executed, will automatically run through a document and convert all these characters to their English equivalent. ie, A, A, A, E, E.

I've searched the forum and cannot find a thread that specifically applies to this problem.

can someone give me a head start?

any help would be much appreciated.

Automatically Run Macro When Formula Result Changes Cell Values

Ignoring Or Automatically Answering Dialob Boxes During Macro Run
The VB macro I'm developing generates a few application specific dialob boxes during execution. I am looking for some way to ignore them or to answer them.

This is the same 'Mail Merge' macro I've asked questions about in earlier posts. I want to thank those who have answered me so far. Your replies have been hugely helpful and enabled me to near the end of this program's development.

For this thread, the macro starts off in Excel. It then controls Word for a bit to do some Mail Merging. During this process, Office opens a brand new Excel window and opens the Mail Merge source file during the DDE processing. It's at this time the first box appears. Since the program starts off in Excel and it's opening a new Excel window, I get a small dialog box that says the file 'personal.xls' is in use and gives some options 'Read only' 'Notify' or cancel.

I'd like to be able to automatically answer 'Read only' for this box so the program continues execution without the user pressing the 'R' key or clicking on 'Read only'.

The second issue arises during the Mail Merge of some larger files. The Mail Merge takes so long that the original Excel window (where the macro execution started) gives me an error message that 'Microsoft Excel is waiting for a response from another application.'

If I go to the window and click 'Ok' execution resumes but it has to restart the whole Mail Merge process which takes an extra few minutes and has caused a few other text issues.

Would this be an appropriate place to use the Wait method?

I volunteered to use MSO 97 VB to automate some processes at work. That's why I'm asking all these questions. The program works on a basic level now but I'd like it to be much more refined so the user has to do much less. I do appreciate your thoughts on these issues. Thanks for reading!


Selecting A Range While A Macro Is Running
I have a vba macro that transfers data between two spreadsheets.

The macro works; however, it would be better if the user could select the range to transfer while the macro was running.

Currently, before the macro is run, 1) the source sheet must be selected 2) the source range on the source sheet must be selected 3) the destination sheet must be selected.

FunctionTransferData(lRowDestination as Long, nCol as Integer, strSource as String) as Boolean
'lRowDest is the destination Row in the Destination Worksheet
'nCol is the column being transferred
'strSource is the path to the source workbook
Dim appXL As Excel.Application
Dim lRow as Long
Dim lRowDest as Long
Dim lRowFirst as Long
Dim lRowLast as Long
Dim objSourceWB As Excel.WorkBook
Dim objSourceWS As Excel.Worksheet
Dim objDestinationWS As Excel.Worksheet
Dim rngSource as Excel.Range
Set appXL = Excel.Application
'Debug.Print objWB.Name
Set objDestinationWS = appXL.ActiveSheet
Set objSourceWB = appXL.Workbooks(strSource)
Set objSourceWS = objSourceWB.Worksheets("Data")
Set rngSource = appXL.Selection '<--------requires the selection to be made before the macro is run
lRowFirst = rngSource.Row
lRowLast = lRowFirst + rngSource.Rows.Count - 1
lRow Dest = lRowDestination
For lRow = lRowFirst to lRowLast
objDestinationWS.Cells(lRowDest, nCol) = objSourceWS.Cells(lRowDest, nCol)
lRowDest = lRowDest + 1
Next lRow
Set rngSource = Nothing
Set objSourceWS = Nothing
Set objSourceWB = Nothing
Set objDestinationWS = Nothing
Set AppXL = Nothing

End Function
Is there a way to select a range while a macro is running?

It would seem execution must be paused, the selection made and the execution continued.

Any help would be appreciated.

Automatically Select CSV File From Directory
I am working an a project that requires me to write some VB code in excel to select any CSV file that is exported into a specific driectory and then take that CSV file and import it into an Excel workboox template.

I have come accross a problem and was hoping someone from this wonderful board would help me work through it.

I was able to get this macro to select the file using the following snippet.

'get the file to open
Dim fNameAndPath As Variant
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
fNameAndPath = "c:excel_projincommingcsv01.csv"
If fNameAndPath = False Then Exit Sub

This chooses the fle called csv01.csv from the incomming folder. I need it to pick any files with a .csv extension.

Can anyone suggest how I could do this?

Thank you.

Automatically Select A Radio Button

I am trying to get Visual Basic to select a radio button based on a varible. This is for a form to determine a persons gender, M or F. and the variable has been preset with the value of M. What I want the program to do is, if the variable is set to M, select the radio button next to the word Male! No matter what I have tried so far, i get the error "Argument Not Optional"

Here is the code for two different attempts Ive tried and both have errored out with the same error.
Dim var_sex

var_sex = "M"

If var_sex = "M" Then
rbSexM.Item.Value = True
rbSexF.Item.Value = True
End If

Dim var_sex

var_sex = "M"

If var_sex = "M" Then
rbSexM.Item.Enabled = True

I'm trying to automatically select an item in a listbox control. Triggered by an event such as a button click or even an onload, I would like to have the listbox index selected from the results of my subroutines.

I'm looking at this, if I want the 22 listindex selected I did this.

Me.lstModelTypeList.SelectedItem = Me.lstModelTypeList.Listindex(22)

can you guys give me a bit of help?

Selecting/De-select All Items In A ListView
On my form that has the ListView control, I have two command buttons, cmdAll and cmdNone. When you click on cmdAll it should check all the items in the Listview and when you click on cmdNone, it should de-select all checked items. how can I ensure that? My present code for checking items is:

VB Code:
Dim i As Long For i = 1 To ListView1.ListItems.Count    If ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).Checked = True Then    frmMovie.lstAudio.AddItem ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).Text    End IfNext
