Formatting All Sheets In A Workbook To Print The Same

I am having trouble getting all sheets in the workbook to print the same. I
have tried selecting all sheets and setting up my header and footer, margins,
etc. But, when I then go to print preview, only the first sheet in the
workbook has held the settings.

Even though I have used Page Layout to set my margins at .3 left and right, I cannot make my columns as wide as they need to be because the spreadsheet continues to print with one inch margins. I am on a deadline -- Help!


I added a print button to my userform

Code:

Private Sub btn1_Click()
UserForm1.PrintForm
End Sub


This prints out the userform as I would like, however it autoprints to the default printer and doesn't allow any printing options so I can't select to "print to one page". So as of now it is only printing out half my form and cutting off the rest.

Any suggestions?


I have never really used VBA and so am completely stuck at this problem. I need to create a macro which auto-populates a master worksheet from the individual user sheets in a shared workbook.

Sheet 1 is the master sheet "Team Stats". There will be an undetermined number of individual worksheets to accomodate new staff.

Each worksheet will be identical, using columns A-I with row 1 having the headings:

Date, Name, Reference, Value, Price, Age, Purchased?, Destination, Add. Products (the last 3 columns will have a drop-down list which will be used to enter data into the cell).

There will be a varying number of rows in each of the individual sheets.

If possible I would like the macro to run every time data is entered into one of the individual worksheets. If this is not then it would be fien to update every time the workbook is opened.

If anyone can help it would really cut down the time I spend collating these stats every day!


I have a spread sheet that prints in duplex no matter what I do. I have made sure the printer duplex function is turned off but yet it insists in printing duplex. It is only this one workbook other workbooks print fine.

I have a Workbook with 2 sheets, the first one is the data entry and the second one contains all the calculations and confidential info.
I have one staff member that does the data entry but I don't want them to see the 2nd sheet. I know I can hide the sheet then protect the entire workbook which does work, but is there an easier way so that the second person doesn't have to keep hiding/unhiding the 2nd sheet?
It would be perfect if when you tried to click on Sheet2, it asked for a password.

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


Is it possible to apply a filter to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook, using the same filter criteria?

For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?

I hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help.


I have a weird one here. I cannot scroll up or down on a particular worksheet. All the other sheets in the workbook operate successfully, but this one appears to be locked. I have tried both the right hand scroll bar and the mouse. The indicator on the scroll bar moves but the page is "stuck". I have copied it out to a new workbook and this is consistent behavior here too.

Cheers,

Hi there, longtime user firsttime poster. Looking for some help as I am a non-expert with macros. Here's what I'm trying to do:

We have to submit things to a certain regulatory body and we usually enter tasks in as soon as they come, do the submission, and then keep a record of that submission.

So, I have a workbook with two sheets, one is "TO DO", the other is "ARCHIVE". Both sheets have the same columns and everything. I am looking for a macro that will automatically cut a (row) from the TO DO sheet and paste it in into the ARCHIVE sheet once it is done, then delete the cut row from the TO DO list so it stays topped up.

The trigger for archiving is the columns M and N which are titled "Complete ?" and each has a validation drop down that says "YES". When both cells in columns M and N have the YES in them, I would like the macro to make the above mentioned actions.

I ran a search on the forums and found something similar, but not quite what I was looking for.

Any help?


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


Hello, what I would like to do is take a portion of a sheet..... So the cells I want to mirror are in the proposal sheet cells B32 x F51. And then mirror the exact duplicate copy to another sheet. The other sheet should have those same values at A20 X G39. What I am trying to do is have a sheet that has skus, prices, and so forth and then when I add,delete, merge, color, or do anything to the cell on the "proposal creation" sheet I want it to mirror only a specific cells to another sheet that is "salesman copy" that we will print to clients. So this way ont he proposal copy a salesman can insert rows or even change the color of the cells and then have it mirror exactly the same on the "salesman copy" which is what we will print for clients. Thank you.

Hello

I'm quite experienced Excel user. I've never come across this problem but tinkering in every conceivable way within Excel settings and the solution has eluded me.

I have added a worksheet created elsewhere (it is a form I need printing, with the data coming from 2 sheets I have created from scratch) which has pre formatted cells for Date and Client Name etc.

When I try to reference the cell in this added sheet from my 2 sheets, instead of the result, it always displays the formula, not the result.

I have tried doing it from one of my sheets to reference to this new, and that displays the result and not formula. I can't imagine why it's doing this and I've never seen it happen before.

Formatting cells, giving cells names rather than the usually adequate of reference to the Cell Number doesn't change things. I wonder if I've picked up some legacy protection from the original form but can't see anywhere in the tools etc that's obvious.

There's about 50+ cells that need referencing and I got to get this done for work.

Please help me. This is my first need to post on a Excel Forum as I've always found help or answers from other peeps or internet but this one is making me scratch my head big time.

Hi all,

The following code is placed in workbook 'A' and is used to open workbook 'B'. These workbooks will now always be housed in the same directory and i want to change the code to use a relative path reference by determining the path of workbook 'A'. here's what I had:

Sub income_statement()

Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
Application.Workbooks.Open "C:\Documents and Settings\.....\workbook B.xls", UpdateLinks:=xlUpdateLinksAlways

End Sub

could you suggest how to change this to use a relative path reference?


Hi all.

I have set up a workbook that is sent out to lots of different users. They each keep and use their own copy.

I have set it up so that everything looks OK and is visible on MY screen, but I'm conscious that some users may have different screen sizes, different toolbars set up, and so on, which might make some parts not immediately visible to them.

I have set up an auto-execute macro which automatically sets the zoom factor to best fit, for several of the worksheets, and this works fine.
Here's the code that does it.
Code:

Sheets("WELCOME").Select
    Range("A1:N18").Select
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = True


By repeating this code for each worksheet, I can make each one be zoomed just right.

However, the file contains 8 sheets that are all identically laid out, except the number of rows is different.
What I want to do is go to the worksheet that has the largest number of rows (it's always the same worksheet, so I know which one it is), set the zoom factor for THAT worksheet (which I can do, and it always has the same number of rows), and then take THAT zoom factor, whatever it is - and it will vary depending on the user - and apply that to the other worksheets that have a similar layout.

I could just go through each worksheet and zoom it automatically, but that would mean that some of the sheets looked very large, others very small, and I'd like them to have a consistent appearance.
I could also specify a range on each worksheet that was similar to the appropriate range on the longest worksheet, and zoom that automatically, but that's not ideal either, because some of the row heights vary from sheet to sheet, and again I'll end up with different font sizes.

Anyone know how to do this ?


Hello, I'm trying to count the number of times a name appears across multiple worksheets but I can't seem to figure it out.


I have 6 sheets to count and all the names are in column A (from A1:A100) on each sheet. The names are not in a particular order.

On sheet 7 I want to have a cell beside each persons name that counts the number of times their name appeared on the other 6 sheets.

For example Sheet 7 (called total) would have

Joe 5 (where 5 is the outcome of the formula I'm looking for to count all the times "Joe" appears on sheets 1-6).

I have it counting per sheet with =COUNTIF(A1:A130,"name") but this is not quite what I am looking for.

Thanks in advance for any advice.


Edit: I am using Excel 2007 w/ windows XP


I am looking for the code to select the visible data after applying a data filter. Actually I know how to select the data after applying the data filter but the issue is I am not able to exclude the header row and give the target range as used (non-blank) rows only!!

I am using below code to Select the Visible rows in the target range:

Code:

Range("A:p").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select


Problems in this code a

1) after applying the filter, while selecting the data it is selecting all the rows in given range till last row on the workbook. I need this to select the the data only till the last used row in the given range.

2) It is not possible to provide the address of the first row after we apply the filter since the first row address may change depending on the values in the table.

E.g. 1st time when I am running the macro the first row in the visible filtered data is starting at Cell address A4 and next time when I will run the macro it may be A6

3) The Code is also selecting the 1st row which is a header row. How can we exclude it from selection.

Some one please revert with the solution.
Thanks in advance.


Hey there,

I have been tasked with introducing userforms into an excel sheet and tbh I'm quite amazed that excel has this capability of adding userforms to excel sheets.

Anyway, I have 2 columns of data in an excel sheet and I wish to add this to a userform so that the userform displays the 2 columns beside each other with headings, like a table. The user should then be able to select a particular row and insert it into the specified cell.

I would also like the user to select a row on the table and then be able to bring up another table depending on the row selected...basically so that the user can draw deeper into the information that they require.

I have an example excel sheet where I have 2 sheets. One sheet is the user entry sheet called User Entry Screen. the next sheet is the tables sheet where my tables are held. Once the user selects the cell shown in the example sheet, it should then bring up the user form. the user then, depending on which item clicked, then gets shown the next window with a table and info on it. then user should then be able to select an item and the cells on the user entry screen would then get populated.

Personally I think this is a really tricky challenge and any help with doing this would be extremely appreciated.

I'll post up further comments as I am trying to work my way through it!

Thanks,

Jag


I have a VBMacro Excel file loaded on a Server that numerous people access. A Macro in this file creates a Copy of a specific Sheet within the Active Workbook and I want to Save it to the individual's Desktop.

How do I find out what the current User's desktop folder path is each time the Marco is run by a different User?

Example User's path: 'C:\Documents and Settings\jfarc\Desktop'

Where 'jfarc' is the name of the current User which, will of course change with every different User that runs the Macro.

Also, is there a way to pull out of Excel what is the current User's 'Options | General | Default File Location' entry? Which may differ from the above directory.

I am familiar with and use the following coding for Opening/Saving files to the current directory of the opened workbook, but it only gives the path of the existing Excel workbook and not the current User's Directory Path:

Dim wbThis As Workbook
Set wbThis = ThisWorkbook
ChDir wbThis.Path


Hi All,

Random question i have a large Excel Workbook (which is protected) and has over five sheets on it - however one sheet has randomly decided not to scroll... yes i know sounds random! If i use the cursor and down arrows the selection just disappears off the screen.
The page will scroll if i filter by one field, but not if i select (All) for all filters.
All other worksheets scroll fine.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
Cheers Kaite


Hello,

Is there a way to create a second worksheet that is based on data from an original sheet that will automatically update when you ADD ROWS to the original sheet?

Linking values between sheets is easy... but I need to be able to set a designated area on my A sheet that I can add rows into which will automatically be added to my B sheet.

Does anyone know of a function that I can apply for this?


I have protected a worksheet as it has several formulae on that I do not wat anyone else to mistakingly delete. I then have spent time on setting up a sheet to track changes (just in case this has any bearing on the problem). This is the only thing that I think I have changed since protecting this morning and now I cannot unprotect the sheet. I have not protected the workbook and the unprotect sheet function is now greyed out.

Any ideas?


I have a workbook that I have unprotected (all - workbook & worksheets). However, I have a sheet that I know is there (because I created it) but I cannot unhide. I know it is there because in the Name Manager, it points to it. Any idea how I can unhide it?


I'm comparing 12 cells on different sheets (in the same workbook) and need to determine if they are all an exact match to one another. Basically, I want something like exact(), but I need to compare more than two strings. Any ideas?

Thanks!


I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.

I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.

The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"

The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"

Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.

I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.

I have attached a sample file.

Thanks in advance for your help.
