Select And Copy Just Cell Content (not The Cell Itself) By VB Macro
my problem is that I can select the content of Cell in Excel sheet [by doubleclicking (or F2) onto the Cell and simply select the whole text inside] and copy it as text.
But I cannot do this by macro.
Is there any chance to select content and copy it by VB macro?

Cell Format, Determining Type Of Cell Content (string/real/integer) And Cell Size
I am not sure whether I am at the right forum, but I am exporting Excel values in a Word document.
Unfortunately -my copy paste action doesn't take in account the cell_properties, so in some cases a value of 9,9999999999999999999999999999998E-4 is entered instead of the 9,9 E-4 or even 0,001 that is shown in the excel sheet.
I'm having trouble with finding the set format command (e.g. Tutbo Pascal: write(value:8:3) -or someting) and I also have strings in these cell -I am not sure if it gives any problems if one sets every zell to 2 decimals, if so -ho can I determin the type of cell content ...
And how to set the cell size to size of content
Could anyone help me, I 'm much obliged
Select Range Based On Cell Content
I am new to VBA and am trying to write some code to select a range of cells dependent on the content and copy and paste it into another worksheet.
I have attached a sample file so that it is easier to see what i want to do. Basically, i want to select all the cells in column A that contain ADE, for example, and then for those copy all the relative cells in columns B, D, E and L.
The problem i have is that there will be a different number of ADE's each time i create the spreadsheet, and the first occurance of ADE will not always be in cell A4, so i need the code to be able to search the sheet for the first occurance and select the relevant number to copy.
Can anyone help?

VBA: Excel Macro: Copy Formula Down In Sheet2 Until Cell In Sheet1 Is Empty
I am trying to modify a soon to be recorded macro in Excel. I receive a file every month with X number of rows. I need to copy a formula that references a cell in Sheet1 down Sheet2 until there are no more rows to copy in Sheet1 (until the row to be copied is empty).
I found Do ... Loop Until, but I can only get it to work by testing a cell on the same sheet b/c the example I found uses ActiveCell.
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Average(RC[-1],RC[-2])"
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1))
How can I test the cell on another sheet that's in the same row as ActiveCell?
I'm not asking for a handout, but they're always appreciated

Writing A Cell Address Of A Cell In 1 Worksheet To A Cell In Another In Same Workbook
Its an urgent requirement….
I have an excel sheet. I need to write the macros in VB for the following requirement:
There are three worksheets in a single workbook.. worksheet3 contains some values in every cell. whenever user writes in something in the cell in worksheet1, the column number and row number from worksheet3 must get written automatically in the adjucent cell in worksheet1 only.
A worksheet 3 contains PLZ A,B in row 5 and column 7. These rows and columns are user defined. If i write PLZ 31, 20 in F26 in worksheet 1 then automatically G26 must contain value 75, G27 must contain a value 31 and G28 must contain a value 20.
I can't say when this value should get populated. Either on the lost focus of F26 or i need to run a macro manually for F26.
what would be the code in both the cases? Is the former case possible? If i select group of cells like F26 present in worksheet1 and altogether run a macro then would it give the result?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

Datagrid - Accessing Content Of A Cell
I have a datagrid that has a datasource of an ado data control. The data control accesses a table in an Access database that is a list of names (REQUESTORNAMES).
On my form the datagrid is visible to the user, who can change one of the names if needed (i.e. if a name is spelled wrong). Once this change is made, I need to grab that new name and search another table (Workorders table) for every instance of that name and change it to the corrected name.
How do I go about getting access to that cell's contents? I have been playing with bookmark, but I am not making much headway. Does anyone have a suggestion?

(2) Also, one second question; is there a easy way to just copy everything in a SQL table to a datagrid view?
Changing A Cell Content In Access97
When a form is in Datasheet view, each row represents a record and
each column represents a field of the record. The problem is if I change
the content of a field for a row (record), then the field of all rows
(all records) will be changed as well, the code is
Me![ProductNameCombo] = Me![ProductNameCombo].ItemData(0)
I change the content of [ProductNameCombo] of the current row
(current record) by using the codes listed above, but it's not only the
ProductNameCombo of CURRENT row to be changed, but ALL rows will
be changed as well, how can I change a field of the current row without
affecting the other rows ? Thanx in advance.

Pb With Cell Content Type Using ADO To Access Excel File
I used ODBC to access an Excel file. The problem is that ODBC seems to determine by itself if a column must contain numeric or alphabetic fields even if all the cells of the Excel table are defined as Text format. And if a numeric value exists in an alphanumeric column the value returned by ODBC is Null instead of the numeric value, and same if alpha in numeric column
Is there a possibility to force ODBC to read all the cells as alphanumeric values?

Run A Macro On Cell Change
New at this but reasonably competent and have searched various threads & sites for 2 days and have it working but not in the proper fashion.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
' Look to see if Value in Cell 1,1 changes from 0
If Target.Value >= 1 Then
' Call the Macro contained in Module1
Application.EnableEvents = True
Works great if you actualy type into the cell and press Enter. The problem is that $A$1 is populated via a DDE Poke from another app based upon an event within that app and it appears that the Worksheet_Change object is blind to that type of change.
When I manually change the contents of $A$1 my macro fires fine and pulls a ton of info from the app that feeds $A$1 - just as I need it.
Have a bridge around it using a macro that just fires every 15 seconds to see if there is a change but it really is a waste of resources - and not the right way to do it.
Thoughts, direction, suggestions? Willing to do the work just don't know where else to look. Thanks
Running A Macro When A Cell Value Changes

Cell Formula From A Macro
I'm trying to insert formulas into cells from a macro in the R1C1-style. I can get that to work, but now I would like to add in a variable to the formula, it appears to work fine in A1 notation. Something like this works...
somer = ActiveCell.Address
Worksheets("Dataform").Range("A30").Formula = "=IF($A$28<" + (Range(somer).Address) + ",1,2)"
But when I modify it like this
somer = ActiveCell.Address
Worksheets("Dataform").Range("A30").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(R28C1<" + (Range(somer).Address) + ",1,2)"
I get an error. I'm thinking it's due to how the cell address is being set in the variable but can't figure out how to do it correctly or if that's even the problem.
Excel: Using A Cell Value To Run A Macro
I've got a spreadsheet that is always open and watching live data from another program (WonderWare). I need to figure out how to use a cell value (which in this case is discreet, always a "1" or a "0") to run a macro. I have the macro written and it works, but it needs to run when the cell value changes. It only needs to run one time, but each time the value changes it needs to run.
Remove Numeric Values In Cell Containg Text And Place In Another Cell
I have some data in Excel thats in quite a mess. I have attached a sample file as it might make more sense to see it. Basically there is a column containg random text followed by a set of numbers (numbers are always at the end of the text). I am trying to cut the numbers (which vary in length and some are separated by spaces, others by fullstops) and place them in an adjacent cell. Is this at all possible? So far I have only managed to work out a formular to place the numbers that follow the last space into the adjacent cell.
Any help would be most appreciated - can this be done?

Activate Cell In A Searching Macro

Assign Macro When Cell Is Clicked
I have a range of cells (say A3:E3). If the user clicks on any of these I want to bring up an input box. I don't know if I should use Worksheet_Change since I don't want them to manually put anything in the cell, but have it activate just by selecting the cell. Is there any sort of worksheet_click event?
Also, if I use ByVal Target as Range (or something like that), how do I test for the range of A3:E3 rather than just one single cell?
Run A Macro Based On Cell Change
I am trying to automate the write dde object based on cell change vs. doing it with a button that runs the macro to write dde object. what happens when I run the following code is nothing, no error, no message. As you can see I am using a message prompt to verify something is happening instead of running the ddepoke command.
this is in sheet 1 and in previous attempts I have used If with Else If and End If, as well as Select commands. those would at least error out telling me that "something" was happening now there is truly nothing happening.
Thanks in advance for any input that can be offered.

Looking Up A Cell And Changing The Contents In A Macro...
Hey all, hope you can help with this
OK, heres my problem:
Ive been making a Log in script in Excel using VB macros, and ive got as far as the user can register, log in, and it brings up his/her details like name, address, age etc. Now what im really stuck with is how to make it so the user can change their details. Basically what i need is the following, with my blanks filled in:
if Sheets(1).Range("cell with their name in") <> Sheets(1).Range("Cell with name stored in DB") Then
'the bit i dont know:
lookup their name in DB, and make it equal Sheets(1).Range"(cell with their name in")
So the bit i dont know how to do is to make it so i lookup their name in the database (using something like a glorified vlookup, hope u can tell me what lol) and make that cell equal another cell of my choice...and this happens when one cell is not equal to another (when there name in DB is not equal to the name they change it to)
Any help will be greatly appretiated...ive been staring at it blankly for about an hour now *sigh*
From Macro Write Text To Cell
I'm using checkboxs on a form, calling it from a macro and then based on the choice a number gets written to a cell.
Looks like this.
If ChooseCCOutput1.cc1 = True Then
Worksheets("work").Cells(4, 2) = 8
Here I'm putting the number 8 in the cell. In a different section I would like a text string to write to the cell instead based on a choice from a form. Just putting the text after = doesn't get it. Can someone tell me what I should do instead?

Activating (or Retrieving) The Value Of A Cell, Based On The Current Active Cell
We will test the patience for newbies!
I want to use the address of the current active cell on Sheet1 to move to the same cell on Sheet2 and then to the same column but an offset of a variable number of rows, and then use the value of that cell.
Eg the active cell is C3, an element of an nxn array on Sheet1, the upper left corner is in A1. I want to retrieve the value at the same relative location to the upper left corner pf one of several nxn arrays on Sheet2, where (if necessary) I can specify an offset after activating sheet2.[ C3 ] to Cx, where x is a calculated value.
Thanks from the newest of newbies!
