    Hello Raj
    Thank you for reaching out with your comment. You encountered a different result than what was described in the post. I assume that you missed inserting positive numbers in the range C16:C17. However, once those values were included, I discovered a result identical to what is described in the post. Therefore, It’s essential to ensure all intended data is inputted correctly.

    Hello Charlotte Fahey
    Thank you for reporting on this fascinating issue. I experience the same problems when a postal code begins with 0, and it is essential to preserve the leading zero when entering data into the system or application.
    The Postal Code column must be formatted as text. Following that, insert the desired data.

    Hello ARON HOLMBERG
    Thank you for reporting your issues. To count the number of components for each station, when the Station ID may be in one of three different columns, you can use the SUMPRODUCT function.
    =SUMPRODUCT((InputSheet!$B:$B=B5)+(InputSheet!$C:$C=B5)+(InputSheet!$D:$D=B5))
    This formula will test each of the three columns for the station ID and return 1 if it’s present in any of the columns and 0 if it’s not. Then, SUMPRODUCT will sum up the results, giving you the components for the station.
    This solution is more elegant than creating a new column that combines the three columns, as it avoids the need to manipulate the data. If you would like a copy of the illustrated workbook, please click the link provided below this section.

    Hello ABIGAYLE PAULSON
    Thank you for reporting on this fascinating issue. I have reviewed this article and found an interesting idea to solve your problem. For illustration, let’s walk through 2nd Example. Filtering the dataset (Sheet3) based on cell values on another sheet (Sheet4). The context filters the dataset for Apple or Tomato products.
    VBA Code:

    Option Explicit
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        Dim product1, product2 As Range
            
        If Target.Worksheet.Name = "Sheet4" And (Target.Address = "$C$2" Or Target.Address = "$E$2") Then
            With Worksheets("Sheet4")
                Set product1 = .Range("C2")
                Set product2 = .Range("E2")
            End With
            With Worksheets("Sheet3")
                With .Range("B4:G13")
                    .AutoFilter Field:=3, Criteria1:=product1, Operator:=xlOr, Criteria2:=product2
                End With
            End With
        End If
    End Sub

    If the changed cell is either C2 or E2, the macro will execute and filter the data in “Sheet3” based on the new values in these cells. Note that the Worksheet_Change event must be placed in the code module for the “Sheet4” worksheet.
    The changes we must make to the original code to create the auto-filtering behavior:

      1) We have to add a Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) procedure to the code module for the “Sheet4” worksheet. This procedure runs automatically whenever a cell value is changed on this worksheet.
      2) We can add an If statement to check whether the changed cell is in Sheet4 and C2 or E2. If so, the macro continues executing; if not, it exits without doing anything.
      3) We need to move the Dim statements for product1 and product2 inside the If statement, so they are only declared if the macro is going to run.
      4) The rest of the macro code is the same as the original code, so it will apply the same filter to “Sheet3” based on the new values in “Sheet4” whenever the cell value changes.

    By adding this Worksheet_Change procedure to the code module, the macro will run automatically whenever a change is made to the specified cells in “Sheet4” without manually opening and running the macro.

    Dear Vyshnav V S

    It is great to see you again. Thanks for reaching out and sharing another exciting problem.

    To add a Request for Delivery Receipt and a Read Receipt in the Outlook Application, we must use the ReadReceiptRequested and OriginatorDeliveryReportRequested properties. Do not worry! Based on your new requirements, I have enhanced the existing sub-procedure (I provided earlier).

    SOLUTION Overview:

    Excel VBA SUb-procedure:

    Sub SendReminderEmails()
    
        Dim outlookApp As Object
        Dim outlookMail As Object
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim i As Long
    
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("DATA")
    
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "F").End(xlUp).row
    
        For i = 5 To lastRow
            If ws.Cells(i, "C").Value < Date Then
                Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
                Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
    
                outlookMail.To = ws.Cells(i, "F").Value
                outlookMail.Subject = "Reminder: " & ws.Cells(i, "E").Value
    
                outlookMail.Body = "Dear " & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "This is a reminder that Task ID " & ws.Cells(i, "D").Value & " is overdue." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   ws.Cells(i, "E").Value & "," & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Start Date: " & ws.Cells(i, "B").Value & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Planned Due Date: " & Format(ws.Cells(i, "C").Value, "DD-MMM-YYYY") & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Mail Content: " & ws.Cells(i, "F").Value & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Reviewer: " & ws.Cells(i, "G").Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Please take necessary action." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Regards," & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Vyshnav V S"
                
                
                outlookMail.ReadReceiptRequested = True
                outlookMail.OriginatorDeliveryReportRequested = True
    
                outlookMail.Display
    
                On Error Resume Next
                outlookMail.Send
    
                Set outlookMail = Nothing
                Set outlookApp = Nothing
            End If
        
        Next i
        
    End Sub

    I hope you have found the solution you were looking for. The solution workbook is attached; good luck.

    Hello Denny Hevalahu

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your questions.

    To calculate the number of different individual items sold:

    1. Select an empty cell.
    2. Insert the following formula: =SUM(1/COUNTIF(C3:C22, C3:C22))
    3. Hit Enter to see an output like the following.

    Hopefully, the formula will be helpful; good luck.

    Hello MEDO

    Thanks for letting us know that the solution works perfectly on your end. However, you want to handle cultural settings in VBA, which also works on non-UK clients.

    Assuming your requirements are related to the decimal separator and thousand separator settings. Different regions worldwide use different conventions to represent decimals and thousands of separators.

    You can use two user-defined functions to replace these separators with periods and commas to overcome the situation. I have developed two VBA user-defined functions and slightly changed the existing sub-procedures.

    Calculating Distance in Miles:

    Option Explicit
    
    Public Function DistanceInMiles(First_Location As String, _

        DistanceInMiles = Format(distance, "#,##0.00")

    Hello Vito Casa

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your questions. Sheet1 contains a list of tasks with corresponding dates. You want to extract this information and plan the tasks on Sheet2 based on the dates. To do so, you can develop multiple formulas using VLOOKUP, INDEX, MATCH, and XLOOKUP. You can also use IFERROR to handle errors.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    1. Using VLOOKUP and IFERROR Functions
    2. Using INDEX, MATCH and IFERROR Functions
    3. Using XLOOKUP Function

    NOTE: If you are a Microsoft 365 user, you will be able to use the XLOOKUP function.

    I hope the formulas mentioned will reach your goal. I have attached the solution workbook as well; good luck.

    Dear Vyshnav V S

    As requested, I have improved the existing sub-procedure (previously provided) to fulfil your new requirements.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    NOTE: If the Microsoft Outlook dialog box appears, click Allow to send an email.

    Improved Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    Sub SendReminderEmails()
    
        Dim outlookApp As Object
        Dim outlookMail As Object
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim i As Long
        
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("DATA")
        
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "F").End(xlUp).row
        
        For i = 5 To lastRow
            If ws.Cells(i, "C").Value < Date Then
                Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
                Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
                
                outlookMail.To = ws.Cells(i, "F").Value
                outlookMail.Subject = "Reminder: " & ws.Cells(i, "E").Value
                
                outlookMail.Body = "Dear " & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "This is a reminder that Task ID " & ws.Cells(i, "D").Value & " is overdue." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    ws.Cells(i, "E").Value & "," & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Start Date: " & ws.Cells(i, "B").Value & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Planned Due Date: " & Format(ws.Cells(i, "C").Value, "DD-MMM-YYYY") & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Mail Content: " & ws.Cells(i, "F").Value & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Reviewer: " & ws.Cells(i, "G").Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Please take necessary action." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Regards," & vbCrLf & _
                                   "Vyshnav V S"
                
                outlookMail.Display
                
                On Error Resume Next
                outlookMail.Send
                
                Set outlookMail = Nothing
                Set outlookApp = Nothing
            End If
        Next i
    
    End Sub

    I hope the sub-procedure will reach your goal. I have attached the solution workbook as well; good luck.

    Dear Vyshnav V S

    Thanks for clarifying your requirements further. I have modified the previously given code to fulfil your goal. Now, you can select any column containing email IDs, and all the other required information will be retrieved from columns C and D.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    Sub SendEmailUsingSelectedRows()
    
        Dim selectedRange As Range
        Dim outlookApp As Object
        Dim outlookMail As Object
        Dim row As Range
        
        For Each row In Selection.Rows
            
            If Not IsEmpty(row.Cells(1, 1).Value) Then
    
                Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
                Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
    
                outlookMail.To = row.Cells(1, 1).Value
                outlookMail.Subject = "Your ExcelDemy Registration Information"
    
                outlookMail.Body = "Greetings," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    Range("D" & row.row).Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    "Deadline: " & Range("E" & row.row).Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    "ExcelDemy Team"
                On Error Resume Next
                outlookMail.Display
                outlookMail.Send
    
                Set outlookMail = Nothing
                Set outlookApp = Nothing
            
            End If
        Next row
    
    End Sub

    Make changes to the code if necessary. I hope the code will fulfil your goal; good luck.

    Dear Issac

    Thanks for letting us know that the previously provided SendEmails sub-procedure worked on your side. Now, you want to automate this task daily. To achieve this, you create a Workbook_Open event and call the SendEmails sub-procedure. Later, you must use the Task Scheduler to open the workbook daily at a particular time. I have improved the SendEmails sub-procedure and created a solution to your problem using the mentioned idea.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Press ALt+F11, click on Insert followed by Module.
    2. Insert the following code in the module1 and save it:
      Sub SendEmails()
      
          Dim deadlineRange As Range
          Dim emailRange As Range
          Dim topicRange As Range
          Dim ws As Worksheet
          Dim outlookApp As Object
          Dim outlookMail As Object
          Dim i As Long
          
          On Error Resume Next
          Set deadlineRange = Application.InputBox("Select the range of deadlines:", Type:=8)
          On Error GoTo 0
          If deadlineRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
          
          On Error Resume Next
          Set emailRange = Application.InputBox("Select the range of emails:", Type:=8)
          On Error GoTo 0
          If emailRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
          
          On Error Resume Next
          Set topicRange = Application.InputBox("Select the range of topics:", Type:=8)
          On Error GoTo 0
          If topicRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
          
          Set ws = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet
          
          Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
          
          For i = 1 To emailRange.Rows.Count
      
              Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
              
              With outlookMail
                  .To = emailRange.Cells(i, 1).Value
                  .Subject = topicRange.Cells(i, 1).Value & " " & Format(deadlineRange.Cells(i, 1).Value, "dd mmmm yyyy")
                  .Body = "Dear," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                          "TEXT: " & topicRange.Cells(i, 1).Value & vbCrLf & _
                          "DEADLINE: " & Format(deadlineRange.Cells(i, 1).Value, "dd mmmm yyyy") & "." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                          "Kind regards,"
                  .Display
                  On Error Resume Next
                  .Send
              End With
              
              Set outlookMail = Nothing
          Next i
          
          Set outlookApp = Nothing
          Set ws = Nothing
          Set topicRange = Nothing
          Set emailRange = Nothing
          Set deadlineRange = Nothing
      
      End Sub
    3. Later, right-click on ThisWorkbook under the VBA Project section and click on View Code.
    4. Paste the following code in the workbook module and save it:
      Private Sub Workbook_Open()
          Call Module1.SendEmails
      End Sub

    5. Now, open the Task Scheduler and close the Excel file.
    6. In the Task Scheduler window, click on Create Basic Task.
    7. In the Create Basic Task Wizard:
      • >> Name the task and add descriptions.
      • >> Click on Next.
    8. Now, choose Task Trigger as daily.
    9. Select the desired date and time and click on Next.
    10. At this time, choose Action as Start a program.
    11. Browse to choose EXCEL.EXE.
    12. Insert the intended Excel file path in the Add arguments section.
    13. Finally, click on Finish.
    14. Now, wait until the start time is reached, previously set within Task Scheduler.
    15. When it is time, the Excel File will open.
    16. As a result, the SendEmails sub-procedure will called from the Workbook_Open event.

    Hopefully, you have found the ultimate solution to your requirements. I have attached the solution workbook; good luck.

    Hello Vyshnav V S

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing an exciting problem. I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure that meets both requirements.

    To send email using VBA, you can use the Send property. When sending an email, the Microsoft Outlook dialog box will appear. Lastly, you must click on Allow to send email.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    1. Enabling Multi-row Selection:
    2. Send Emails by Selecting a Row (specifically the email ID column in that row):

    NOTE: Additionally, the sub-procedure will validate your selection. If you select another column instead of the ID column (assuming it is column B), the message will pop up saying to choose the intended column.

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    Sub SendEmailUsingSelectedRows()
    
        Dim selectedRange As Range
        Dim outlookApp As Object
        Dim outlookMail As Object
        Dim row As Range
        
        If Selection.Column <> 2 Then
            MsgBox "Please select a range of cells in the Email ID column (Column B).", vbCritical
            Exit Sub
        End If
        
        For Each row In Selection.Rows
    
            If Not IsEmpty(row.Cells(1, 1).Value) Then
    
                Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
                Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
    
                outlookMail.To = row.Cells(1, 1).Value
                outlookMail.Subject = "Your ExcelDemy Registration Information"
    
                outlookMail.Body = "Greetings," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    row.Cells(1, 2).Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    "Deadline: " & row.Cells(1, 3).Value & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                                    "ExcelDemy Team"
                On Error Resume Next
                outlookMail.Display
                outlookMail.Send
    
                Set outlookMail = Nothing
                Set outlookApp = Nothing
            
            End If
        Next row
    
    End Sub

    Hopefully, the sub-procedure will meet your expectations. I have attached the solution workbook as well. Good luck.

    Hello Irish Jim

    Thanks for your compliments. Your appreciation and suggestions mean a lot to us. You are right; it would be great to mention right-clicking and clicking on View Code when inserting code in the sheet module. Also, it is important to mention the Target parameter when discussing events in Excel.

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your problem. I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure that automatically sends emails.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    All you need to do is to click on Allow when the Microsoft Outlook dialog box appears.

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    Sub SendEmails()
    
        Dim deadlineRange As Range
        Dim emailRange As Range
        Dim topicRange As Range

        On Error GoTo 0
        If emailRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        On Error Resume Next
        Set topicRange = Application.InputBox("Select the range of topics:", Type:=8)
        On Error GoTo 0
        If topicRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
        
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet
        
        Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        
        For i = 1 To emailRange.Rows.Count
    
            Set outlookMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0)
            
            With outlookMail
                .To = emailRange.Cells(i, 1).Value
                .Subject = topicRange.Cells(i, 1).Value & " " & Format(deadlineRange.Cells(i, 1).Value, "dd mmmm yyyy")
                .Body = "Dear," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                        "TEXT: " & topicRange.Cells(i, 1).Value & vbCrLf & _
                        "DEADLINE: " & Format(deadlineRange.Cells(i, 1).Value, "dd mmmm yyyy") & "." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                        "Kind regards,"
                .Display
                .Send
            End With
            
            Set outlookMail = Nothing
        Next i
        
        Set outlookApp = Nothing
        Set ws = Nothing
        Set topicRange = Nothing
        Set emailRange = Nothing
        Set deadlineRange = Nothing
    
    End Sub

    When testing the sub-procedure, I accidentally emailed you by pressing Allow in the Microsoft Outlook dialog box. Please ignore that. I hope the sub-procedure will fulfil your goal; good luck.

          Next key
      
          GETMeteorologicalWeekNo = 0
          
      End Function

    4. Return to the sheet and select cell B2.
    5. Insert the following formula: =GETMeteorologicalWeekNo(A2)
    6. Drap the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula down.

    I hope the Excel VBA User-defined function will fulfil your goal. I also have attached the solution workbook; good luck.

    Hello Larry

    Thanks for sharing your problem. Being remote makes it difficult to provide an ultimate solution. However, you can try Repairing Office Installation, Checking Graphics Card Drivers, and Checking for Conflicting Add-ins.

    Sometimes, a corrupted Office installation can cause unexpected behavior. To fix this, you can try repairing your Office 365 installation. Outdated or incompatible graphics card drivers could also contribute to display issues. Update your graphics card drivers to the latest version from HP’s website.

    If none of the above solutions work, you might need to contact HP Support for further assistance. Though the exact cause (Office 365, HP Spectre, or Windows 11) remains unclear, hopefully, you can try these ideas to overcome your situation.

    Hello Andre Van Niekerk

    Thanks for sharing your problem. It is unusual for copying and pasting to stop working entirely in Excel 2013 if it worked perfectly in Excel 2010. Both versions rely on the same core Windows clipboard functionality.

    The PDF file copied from might have a complex layout or structure that Excel 2013 has difficulty handling during the copy-and-paste process. Also, if you’re trying to paste into merged cells in Excel 2013, it might cause problems. Try un-merging the cells before pasting.

    If you are still having trouble with the issue, we recommend you use the other approaches mentioned. Let us know if they lead you to the same result; good luck.

    Hello Ignacio Chavez

    Thanks for thanking me. Though, I was unable to access the link you have given, I understand your requirements. I have modified my previous VBA code in such a way that this time, it will identify the columns dynamically (Assuming column headings are in row 5).

    SOLUTION Overview:

    Excel VBA Code:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        Dim AffectedRange As Range
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Columns("D")) Is Nothing Then
    
            Set AffectedRange = Me.Range("D5:D" & Me.Cells(Me.Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row)
            
            If Not AffectedRange Is Nothing And AffectedRange.Cells.Count > 1 Then
                Call SortRangeByAverageSales
            End If
        
        End If
    
    End Sub
    
    Sub SortRangeByAverageSales()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim i As Long
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim lastColumn As Long
        Dim lastRowRank As Long
    
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
    
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
        lastColumn = ws.Cells(5, ws.Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    
        With ws.Sort
            .SortFields.Clear
            .SortFields.Add Key:=ws.Range("D5:D" & lastRow), _
                            SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, _
                            Order:=xlDescending
            .SetRange ws.Range(ws.Cells(5, 3), ws.Cells(lastRow, lastColumn))
            .Apply
        End With
    
        ws.Range("B" & lastRow).ClearContents
        lastRowRank = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row
    
        For i = 5 To lastRowRank
            ws.Range("B" & i).Value = i - 4
        Next i
    
    End Sub

    Hopefully, you have found the idea. I have attached the solution workbook; good luck.

    Hello Marvin

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your questions so clearly. Basically, you want to have a timestamp for each row and store it in two different columns: one for the Date Entered and the other for the Date Modified.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    I have developed an Excel VBA Event Procedure regarding your problem:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        Dim rng As Range
        Dim cell As Range
    
        Set rng = Me.Range("C2:C" & Me.Rows.Count)
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then
            Application.EnableEvents = False
    
            For Each cell In Intersect(Target, rng)
                
                If Not IsEmpty(cell) Then
    
                    If IsEmpty(cell.Offset(0, -2)) Then
                        cell.Offset(0, -2).Value = Format(Now, "dd-mm-yyy hh:mm:ss")
                    End If
                    cell.Offset(0, -1).Value = Format(Now, "dd-mm-yyy hh:mm:ss")
                    
                Else
                    cell.Offset(0, -2).ClearContents
                    cell.Offset(0, -1).Value = Format(Now, "dd-mm-yyy hh:mm:ss")
                End If
                
            Next cell
    
            Application.EnableEvents = True
        
        End If
    
    End Sub

    Hopefully, you have found the idea. I have attached the solution workbook for better understanding; good luck.

    Hello Hendrik

    Thanks for visiting our blog and posting your question. You must use the SUMIF or SUMIFS function to calculate the total sales.

    1. Using SUMIF: =SUMIF($B$5:$B$12, $H$4, $E$5:$E$12)
    2. Using SUMIFS: =SUMIFS($E$5:$E$12,$B$5:$B$12,$H$4)

    I hope these formulas will help; good luck.

    Hello Keith Shelly

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your problem with such clarity. Instead of the current formula, you can try the following formula: =COUNTIF('Leased Parts'!$A:$A, $B1)

    Hello Rob Devine

    Thanks a lot for your kind words. Your appreciation means a lot to us.

    You wanted to display the UserForm Calender when you select a single cell from the D75:D80 range and insert the date into the selected cell. Thanks once again for sharing such a practical requirement.

    SOLUTION Overview:

    To do so, follow these steps:

    1. Double-click on the UserForm named Calender.
    2. Paste the following code in the module and save it:
      Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
          
          Dim btn As CommandButton
          Set btn = Me.ActiveControl
          
          Selection.Value = btn.Caption & "-" & Cmb_Month.Text & "-" & Cmb_Year.Text
      
      End Sub
      
      Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
          
          Dim btn As CommandButton
          Set btn = Me.ActiveControl
          
          Selection.Value = btn.Caption & "-" & Cmb_Month.Text & "-" & Cmb_Year.Text
      
      End Sub
      
      Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
          
          Dim btn As CommandButton
          Set btn = Me.ActiveControl
          
          Selection.Value = btn.Caption & "-" & Cmb_Month.Text & "-" & Cmb_Year.Text

    Hello Denise Sano

    Thanks for visiting our blog and leaving an exciting comment. You want to rank salespeople by region based on number of units sold and then (in the case of ties) by total sales amount. However, developing such a formula using Excel’s built-in function would be time-consuming.

    So, I have developed an Excel VBA sub-procedure to help you overcome your situation.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt+F11.
    2. Click on Insert followed by Module.
    3. Paste the following code into the Module and run it:
      Sub RankSalesRepByRegion()
      
          Dim ws As Worksheet
          Dim lastRow As Long
          Dim salesRepCol As Range, regionCol As Range, unitsSoldCol As Range, salesAmountCol As Range, rankCol As Range
          Dim region As Range, uniqueRegions As New Collection
          Dim i As Long
          
          Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
          
          lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
          
          Set salesRepCol = ws.Range("A2:A" & lastRow)
          Set regionCol = ws.Range("B2:B" & lastRow)
          Set unitsSoldCol = ws.Range("C2:C" & lastRow)
          Set salesAmountCol = ws.Range("D2:D" & lastRow)
          Set rankCol = ws.Range("E2:E" & lastRow)
          
          For Each region In regionCol
              On Error Resume Next
              uniqueRegions.Add region.Value, CStr(region.Value)
              On Error GoTo 0
          Next region
          
          For i = 1 To uniqueRegions.Count
              Dim regionName As String
              regionName = uniqueRegions(i)
              
              Dim salesReps() As String
              Dim unitsSold() As Long
              Dim salesAmount() As Double
              Dim ranks() As Integer
              
              Dim j As Long
              Dim uniqueCount As Long
              uniqueCount = 0
              
              For j = 1 To lastRow - 1
                  If regionCol.Cells(j, 1).Value = regionName Then
                      uniqueCount = uniqueCount + 1
                      ReDim Preserve salesReps(1 To uniqueCount)
                      ReDim Preserve unitsSold(1 To uniqueCount)
                      ReDim Preserve salesAmount(1 To uniqueCount)
                      
                      salesReps(uniqueCount) = salesRepCol.Cells(j, 1).Value
                      unitsSold(uniqueCount) = unitsSoldCol.Cells(j, 1).Value
                      salesAmount(uniqueCount) = salesAmountCol.Cells(j, 1).Value
                  End If
              Next j
              
              For j = 1 To uniqueCount - 1
                  For k = j + 1 To uniqueCount
                      If unitsSold(j) < unitsSold(k) Or (unitsSold(j) = unitsSold(k) And salesAmount(j) < salesAmount(k)) Then
      
                          Dim tempSalesRep As String
                          tempSalesRep = salesReps(j)
                          salesReps(j) = salesReps(k)
                          salesReps(k) = tempSalesRep
                          
                          Dim tempUnitsSold As Long
                          tempUnitsSold = unitsSold(j)
                          unitsSold(j) = unitsSold(k)
                          unitsSold(k) = tempUnitsSold
                          
                          Dim tempSalesAmount As Double
                          tempSalesAmount = salesAmount(j)
                          salesAmount(j) = salesAmount(k)
                          salesAmount(k) = tempSalesAmount
                      End If
                  Next k
              Next j
              
              ReDim ranks(1 To uniqueCount)
              ranks(1) = 1
              For j = 2 To uniqueCount
                  If unitsSold(j - 1) = unitsSold(j) And salesAmount(j - 1) = salesAmount(j) Then
                      ranks(j) = ranks(j - 1)
                  Else
                      ranks(j) = j
                  End If
              Next j
              
              For j = 1 To uniqueCount
                  For k = 1 To lastRow
                      If salesRepCol.Cells(k, 1).Value = salesReps(j) Then
                          rankCol.Cells(k, 1).Value = ranks(j)
                          Exit For
                      End If
                  Next k
              Next j
          Next i
      
      End Sub

    As a result, you get the intended rank like the following GIF.

    Dear Steve

    It seems you are having some issues when dragging formulas across columns. Excel may be challenging, mainly when working with complicated formulas and extensive data.

    When creating a formula, use absolute references ($) for fixed cells (such as your time series cells) and relative references for cells that should change as you drag the formula across columns. Excel offers many built-in tools for data analysis, such as the Analysis ToolPak, which can assist with forecasting tasks. If your forecasting process is highly repetitive and complex, consider automating it with a VBA macro.

    I understand how you feel and your frustrations. Hopefully, these suggestions can help you overcome your problem.

    Thanks for visiting our blog. You’re right; the article was described based on an older version of MS 365, likely pre-dating March 2024.

    From now on, in Excel 365, the Track Changes functionality has been integrated into the Show Changes button. It is important to note that saving the file to OneDrive is a prerequisite for using this feature.

    Hello Zakostelsky Jan

    You can use the Worksheet_Change event in Excel VBA to make the code run automatically whenever column H changes.

    Here’s how you can modify the code:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Columns("H")) Is Nothing Then
            Call SendEmailOnValueChange
        End If
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub SendEmailOnValueChange()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim i As Long
        Dim OutlookApp As Object
        
        Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        
        Dim MItem As Object
        
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "H").End(xlUp).Row
        
        For i = 2 To lastRow
            If ws.Cells(i, "H").Value < ws.Cells(i, "I").Value Then
                
                Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
                Set MItem = OutlookApp.CreateItem(0)
                
                With MItem
                    .To = "[email protected]" ' Change to your recipient email address
                    .Subject = "Value in column H has fallen below value in column I"
                    .body = "The value in row " & i & " of column H has fallen below the corresponding value in column I." & vbCrLf & _
                    "ID number from column A: " & ws.Cells(i, "A").Value
                    .Send
                End With
                
                Set MItem = Nothing
                Set OutlookApp = Nothing
            
            End If

    Hello JAN ZAKOS TELSKY,

    I hope you are doing well. Thank u so much for your query. Well, I can see you want to add the ID number (Column A)  in the mail body when the changing row falls below the value from the corresponding cell. You also added that the changing values are in column H, and the static value is in column I.

    Now, follow the below VBA code to write the ID number from column A in the email body when the value in column H falls below the value of column I.

    Code:

    Sub SendEmailOnValueChange()
    
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim lastRow As Long
    Dim i As Long
    Dim OutlookApp As Object
    
    Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    
    Dim MItem As Object
    
    Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1") ' Change "Sheet1" to your actual sheet name
    
    lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "H").End(xlUp).Row
    
    For i = 2 To lastRow
    If ws.Cells(i, "H").Value < ws.Cells(i, "I").Value Then
    Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set MItem = OutlookApp.CreateItem(0)
    
    With MItem
    .To = "[email protected]" ' Change to your recipient email address
    .subject = "Value in column H has fallen below value in column I"
    .body = "The value in row " & i & " of column H has fallen below the corresponding value in column I." & vbCrLf & _
    "ID number from column A: " & ws.Cells(i, "A").Value
    .Send
    End With
    
    Set MItem = Nothing
    Set OutlookApp = Nothing
    
    End If
    
    Next i
    
    End Sub

    Once you apply the code, you will get an email as below.

    Hope this information will help you. Please let us know if there is any further query in the comment section.

    Hello Ravi

    Thanks for visiting our blog and posting your problem. The ByRef argument type mismatch error typically occurs when the data types of variables are passed to a subroutine or function mismatch. In this case, the issue seems to be with the variable database in the UserForm_Activate() event.

    To fix the ByRef argument type mismatch error:

    1. Ensure that the database variable is declared as a Worksheet type.
    2. Check whether the database data type variable matches the expected data type in the subroutine.

    Hello Nirmani

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problem. You passed an argument that could not be manipulated into the type expected; the ByRef error happens. For example, when you try to supply an Integer variable when a Long is required.

    If you encounter a ByRef error related to your database variable, it could be due to how you pass the worksheet object reference. Ensure that the data types of the database variable matches the expected data type in the subroutine.

    When the UserForm_Activate event triggers, pass the correct worksheet reference. Double-check that the worksheet name you’re passing matches the actual name of the worksheet in your Excel file.

    Hello Greg Smalls

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your problem so clearly. After reviewing your code, I assume you have a dataset like the following image.

    The code you provided is OK; however, perhaps you have somehow messed up it when offsetting the names.

    I have revised your code and made some changes that work perfectly for the mentioned dataset. Follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt + F11.
    2. Click on Insert followed by Module.
    3. Paste the following code in the module:
      Sub Due_Date()
      
          Dim DueDate_Row As Range
          Dim Due As Range
          Dim PopUp_Notification As String
          
          Set DueDate_Row = Range("B4:I4")
          
          For Each Due In DueDate_Row
              If Not IsEmpty(Due.Value) And Date >= Due - Range("J4") Then
                  PopUp_Notification = PopUp_Notification & " " & Due.Offset(1, 0).Value
              End If
          Next Due
          
          If PopUp_Notification = "" Then
              MsgBox "PM Needed Soon."
          Else
              MsgBox "Schedule PM Maintenance Today: " & PopUp_Notification
          End If
          
      End Sub

    4. Press F5 or click on Run to get the intended output like the following image.

    Hello Vipin

    Thanks for your nice words. Your appreciation means a lot to us.

    You are facing an issue with a worksheet with a Doughnut chart and a textbox in its center to display a value from another cell. The textbox is visible on the desktop version of Excel but not on the online version.

    You have tried moving the textbox to the front using Bring to Front, but it doesn’t work. You have also tried sending the chart to the back using Send to Back, but it doesn’t help either.

    The issue might be browser-specific. Different web browsers sometimes display online applications differently. For example, I do not have this type of issue at all.

     

    You may be using an older Excel Online version with this bug. Microsoft frequently updates Excel Online, and they might have fixed the issue in newer versions. Check if there are any updates available.

                  Next i
              End If
      
          End With
      
      End Sub

    4. Return to the sheet and insert the intended images in the selected cell, like the following GIF.

    As a result, you will no longer see pictures from the unselected categories in the top row cell when filtering or sorting categories, like the following GIF.

    I am attaching the solution workbook for better understanding; good luck.

    Hello CHANDRA

    Thanks for visiting our blog and posting an exciting comment. You want to convert decimal numbers (up to two decimal places) to words in Rupees.

    To do so, follow these:

    1. Right-click on the sheet name tab.
    2. Click on View Code.
    3. Now, please insert the following code in the sheet module and save it:
      Function AdvancedWord(SNum As String)
      
          Dim zDPInt As Integer
          Dim zArrPlace As Variant
          Dim zRStr_Paisas As String

    Hello MIke

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing an exciting query. It seems like you are attempting to expand the range of cells to which the multiple selection functionality applies.

    However, the line: “Target.Address = Range(“C4:K38”)” doesn’t quite work as expected because the “Target.Address” property returns the address of the changed cell, not the range as a whole.

    To check if a change occurred within a specific range of cells in Excel using VBA, use the Intersect method. It simply checks if any cells in the changed range overlap with your desired range. This way, your code responds accurately to changes within the specified range, regardless of the number of cells involved.

    I have developed a solution for your query. Follow these steps:

    1. Right-click on the sheet name tab.
    2. Click on View Code.
    3. Insert the following code in the sheet module and save it:
      Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
          
          Dim itemRange As Range
      
          Set itemRange = Me.Range("A4:B9")
          
          Dim dropdownRange As Range
          
          Set dropdownRange = Me.Range("C4:K38")
          
          If Not Intersect(Target, itemRange) Is Nothing Then
              dropdownRange.Cells.ClearContents
              Call CreateDropDown
          End If
          
          Dim old_val As String
          Dim new_val As String
          
          Application.EnableEvents = True
          On Error GoTo Exitsub
          
          If Not Intersect(Target, dropdownRange) Is Nothing Then
          If Target.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeAllValidation) Is Nothing Then
              GoTo Exitsub
            Else: If Target.Value = "" Then GoTo Exitsub Else
              Application.EnableEvents = False
              new_val = Target.Value
              Application.Undo
              old_val = Target.Value
                If old_val = "" Then
                  Target.Value = new_val
                Else
                  If InStr(1, old_val, new_val) = 0 Then
                      Target.Value = old_val & ", " & new_val
                Else:
                  Target.Value = old_val
                End If
              End If
            End If
          End If
          
          Application.EnableEvents = True
      Exitsub:
          Application.EnableEvents = True
      
      End Sub
      
      
      Sub CreateDropDown()
      
          Dim dataRange As Range
          Dim dropdownRange As Range
          Dim itemArray() As String
          Dim i As Integer
          Dim cell As Range
      
          Set dataRange = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A5:B9")
      
          ReDim itemArray(1 To dataRange.Rows.Count * dataRange.Columns.Count)
      
          i = 1
          For Each cell In dataRange
              itemArray(i) = cell.Value
              i = i + 1
          Next cell
      
          Set dropdownRange = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("C4:K38")
      
          For Each cell In dropdownRange
              With cell.Validation
                  .Delete
                  .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
                  xlBetween, Formula1:=Join(itemArray, ",")
              End With
          Next cell
      
      End Sub

    4. Return to the sheet and make the desired change, such as the following GIF.

    Hello Peter Clarke

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problems and suggestions. You put a Public Variable to display in all procedures but got an “out of scope” report. You want a thorough explanation.

    This issue could arise due to several reasons:

    • Proper Declaration: Ensure the Public Variable is declared correctly at the module level, typically at the top of a module and outside any specific procedure.
    • Module Inclusion: Check that the module containing the Public Variable is included in the project. If it’s not included or there are visibility issues, the variable may not be accessible across all procedures.
    • Reference Check: If multiple modules or projects exist, ensure no conflicts or reference issues. Public Variables should be accessible across all referenced projects and modules.

    I have demonstrated watching a Public Variable in the Watch Window. I am using three modules: one for the public variable, one for displaying the public variable, and one for watching the public variable.

    VBA Code in Module1:

    Public totalSales As Long

    VBA Code in Module2:

    Public Sub DisplayTotalSales()
        Debug.Print totalSales
    End Sub

    VBA Code in Module3:

    Sub CalculateTotalSales()
        
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim i As Long
        Dim productA As Variant
        Dim productB As Variant
        
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row
        
        For i = 6 To lastRow
            
            If IsNumeric(ws.Cells(i, 3).Value) Then
                productA = ws.Cells(i, 3).Value
            Else
                productA = 0
            End If
            
            If IsNumeric(ws.Cells(i, 4).Value) Then
                productB = ws.Cells(i, 4).Value
            Else
                productB = 0
            End If
            
            totalSales = productA + productB
            ws.Cells(i, 5).Value = totalSales
            
            Call DisplayTotalSales
        
        Next i
    
    End Sub

    OUTPUT Overview:

    Hopefully, the idea will overcome your situation. Good luck.

    Hello Syarif,

    Thank you for reaching out to us and for your valuable query.

    As this article focuses on creating a cash flow projection format, you have to manually input your projected amounts for all of your cash inflows and outflows.

    To project cash flows for five years using an indirect method, first, you must collect your company’s balance sheets and income statements for two consecutive years. Using two-year data, you have to find cash flows manually for year 1 (base of projection). Next, for projecting cash flows for five years, estimate a percentage of expected growth in cash flow. Multiply each cash flow with your estimated projection of increase or decrease of cash flows. Use Fill Handle to apply the formula for all the years you want to project.

    Hope that the following article will provide you with valuable clues on creating cash flow projections using the indirect method:

    Dear VICTORI,

    Thanks for your feedback. It seems that you have mistakenly assumed that we didn’t include the 5.50% growth rate in our calculations.

    The growth rate is used for calculating the stream of future payments. As we showed this calculation in method 1 (i.e. Using the NPV Function method), we didn’t show it again in method 2 and suggested users to see it from the previous method.

    However, as it has dodged your eyes, we have included the detailed calculation in method 2 as well. You also suggested that the FV formula we provided, is for a regular annuity, not a growing annuity. This is true, and we have updated our article according to your feedback. You can check the updated article and share your feedback with us.

    Thank you again for your valuable comment.

    Hello Aadi

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing such an interesting problem. I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA User-Defined function to fulfil your goal.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt+F11.
    2. Paste the following code into the module and Save.
      Function DivideIntoEqualGroups(range_1 As Range, numGroups As Integer) As Variant
      
          Dim output As Variant
          Dim numRows As Long
          Dim groupSize As Long
          Dim remainder As Long
          Dim i As Long, j As Long, k As Long
      
          numRows = range_1.Rows.Count
          groupSize = Application.WorksheetFunction.RoundDown(numRows / numGroups, 0)
          remainder = numRows Mod numGroups
          
          ReDim output(1 To numRows, 1 To 1)
      
          k = 1
          For i = 1 To numGroups
              For j = 1 To groupSize
                  If k <= numRows Then
                      output(k, 1) = i
                      k = k + 1
                  End If
              Next j
              If remainder > 0 Then
                  If k <= numRows Then
                      output(k, 1) = i
                      k = k + 1
                      remainder = remainder - 1
                  End If
              End If
          Next i
      
          DivideIntoEqualGroups = output
      
      End Function

    3. Return to the sheet and select cell B1.
    4. Insert the following formula: =DivideIntoEqualGroups(A1:A99,5)
    5. Hit Enter.

    As a result, you will see an output like the following GIF.

    Hey SMN,

    Sorry to hear that you were confused about Exercise 4. Let me help you by clarifying the problem.

    In the dataset of Exercise 4, look at the rows of Order ID A001, A002, and A003. These orders are placed at the same Date & Time by the same Customer. Therefore, only the row of Order ID A001 is considered a New Order. Similarly, rows of Order ID A015, A016, A017, A018, and  A019 are placed on the same Date & Time by the same Customer. Therefore, only the row of Order ID A015 is considered a New Order.

    In Exercise, 4 your primary task is to identify these New Orders. While this can be achieved with a simple formula, an additional requirement of this Exercise is using structured references with Excel tables.

    Therefore, you have to convert the data range into a table first. And then apply formulas to identify new orders.

    The primary concept behind solving this Exercise is to compare the Date Time and Customer values of each row with the Date Time and Customer values of the previous row. If any match is not found, then the current row is considered a New Order.

    I hope this explanation will help you understand the exercise problem and its solution. Let us know your feedback.

    Dear KEITH BASKETT,

    Thanks for sharing your problem with us. I understand that you are using InputBox to take the number of rows you wish to fill in a column and then repeat the process for the next columns. However, you are facing errors when you enter a text or invalid input or press the OK, Cancel, or X button without entering any value.

    To fix these errors, you have to include a few error-handling situations in your code. Here, I have provided a sample code that contains error handling for your described situations:

    Sub HandleErrorsWhileFillingRows()
        Dim response As Variant
        Dim runAgain As Boolean
        Dim repeatCol As Variant
        Dim numRows As Variant
        Dim curCol As Integer
       
        runAgain = True
        curCol = 1
       
        While runAgain
            numRows = InputBox("Enter the number of rows:", "Number of Rows", 20)
            If Not numRows = "" Then
                If IsNumeric(numRows) Then
                    For i = 1 To Int(numRows)
                        Cells(i, curCol).Value = i
                    Next i
                    repeatCol = vbNo
                Else
                    MsgBox "The input was not a number"
                    repeatCol = MsgBox("Do you want to repeat this column?", vbYesNo, "Repeat Column?")
                End If
            Else
                MsgBox "You entered a blank value"
                repeatCol = MsgBox("Do you want to repeat this column?", vbYesNo, "Repeat Column?")
            End If
           
            If repeatCol = vbYes Then
                runAgain = True
            Else
                response = MsgBox("Do you want to enter numbers in next column?", vbYesNo, "Enter Number in Next Column")
                If response = vbYes Then
                    curCol = curCol + 1
                    runAgain = True
                Else
                    runAgain = False
                    MsgBox "You finished filling rows"
                End If
            End If
        Wend
       
    End Sub

    Here’s how this code operates:

    • >> This code starts with the current column value of 1 (column A) and asks users to enter the number of rows they wish to fill with numbers. The value is set to 20 by default, but the users can change it to any number or text or keep it void.
    • >> If the user input is numeric, then it enters values in cells of the current column (from 1 to the number of specified rows).
    • >> If the user input is non-numeric, then it shows the message “The input was not a number” and asks if the user wishes to repeat filling the current column again.
    • >> If the user clicks Yes, the previous steps are repeated for the current column. Otherwise, the code moves to the next column.
    • >> If a user clicks OK with a void input or clicks Cancel or X buttons, then it shows the message “You entered a blank value” and asks if the user wishes to repeat filling the current column again.
    • >> If the user clicks Yes, the previous steps are repeated for the current column. Otherwise, the code moves to the next column.

    You can preview the output in the following GIF:

    I hope this example will be helpful for you to understand how to handle errors while working with an InputBox in Excel VBA. Let us know your feedback.

    Dear CYNTHIA,

    Thanks for reaching us. I understand that you want to create attendance sheets for many employees and shifts, including check-in/check-out time, break-in/break-out time, hours late in the morning, and overtime hours.

    Although the current article includes an attendance sheet for only 1 employee, our site contains multiple other articles that can help you to fulfill your requirements. Here are some recommended articles for creating an attendance sheet with your given requirements:

    This article contains the steps to create a weekly attendance sheet for many employees with check-in time, check-out time, and total work hours. You can apply the steps to create a weekly attendance sheet for each shift and each month.

    This article shows how to calculate overtime and overtime pay for any employee. You can use the formulas in this article to include overtime in the weekly attendance sheet for each sheet and each month.

    This article shows how to include break time in an attendance sheet in Excel.

    For the remaining requirement, the hours late value in the morning, you can add a column after the check-in time column and simply subtract the check-in time value from the advised check-in time (use absolute cell reference if it is specified in a single cell).

    I hope you will be able to develop your required attendance sheet with the help of the above-mentioned articles. Let us know your feedback.

    Dear NADEE

    Thanks for sharing your problem with us. I understand that you want to extract the Julian date from a string and convert the Julian date to the Gregorian Date.

    This can be accomplished using a simple formula. To demonstrate an example, I have taken the following dataset. Here, column A contains the employee names, and column B contains the string code with Julian dates. In column C, I have applied the following formula to extract the Julian Date:

    =MID(B2,LEN(A2)+1,7)

    Afterward, I applied the following formula to convert the Julian date to the Gregorian date:

    =DATE(LEFT(C2,4),1,0)+MOD(C2,1000)

    Thus, you can easily convert a Julian date to a Gregorian date. I hope this solution will be helpful for your requirements. Let us know your feedback.

    Hey DAVID,

    Thanks for sharing your problem with us. We are glad to hear that you liked our article. We understand that you want to use the NOW function in Conditional Formatting to change the format of a range that contains visiting times.

    Here, we will provide such an example. Consider the following dataset. It contains Visiting Time and Appointment Duration for multiple clients. We have calculated the Visit End Time using the following formula:

    =C3+D3/24

    To highlight the rows where the current time falls within the Visiting Time and End Time using the NOW function in Conditional Formatting, follow the steps below:

    1. First, select the data range (B3:E13 in our case) where you want to apply the formatting.
    2. Then, click Conditional Formatting >> New Rules.
    3. Select the rule type Use a formula to determine which cells to format.
    4. Enter the following formula:
      =(NOW()>$C3)*(NOW()<$E3)
    5. Click Format.
    6. In the Format Cells dialog box, go to Font tab >> select a suitable color >> click OK.
      You can choose other formatting patterns, fonts, number formats, and borders here as well.
    7. Click OK in th conditional formatting dialog box.

    As a result, rows that meet the condition will be formatted.

    We hope this example will help you understand how to apply the NOW function in the Conditional Formatting rule. Let us know your feedback.

    Hello SHIVAM

    Thanks for your comment. To create a shift scheduler for a 5-member team with the specified shifts and off days, you can follow these steps:

    1. Create a table or spreadsheet with columns for the days of the week (Monday to Sunday) and rows for each team member.
    2. Assign each team member to a specific shift (Morning, Evening, Night, General) based on availability and preferences.
    3. Apply the off days for each member according to the given schedule (e.g., Member 1 off on Friday and Saturday).
    4. Ensure that Member 5 is assigned to the General shift and occasionally to the Morning shift when required.
    5. Repeat this process for each week or month, depending on the duration of your scheduling period.

    Here is an example of how you could structure the scheduler:

    Hello CHARLIE

    Thanks for your comment. The existing article’s date picker displays the date based on the date order of the Machine (Windows, Mac or Linux). However, you wanted to modify the VBA code to adjust the date format to match the desired month/day/year (American format) for both the calendar display and input into the cell. Thus, the idea will ensure consistency in date formats between the calendar view and the input into the cell.

    To do so, you only need to modify the existing sub-procedure named Create_Calender by replacing it with the following.

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    
    Sub Create_Calender()
            
        For i = 1 To 42
                
            If i < Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value)) Then
            Controls("C" & (i)).Caption = Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "d")
            
            Controls("C" & (i)).ControlTipText = Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "m/d/yyyy")
            
            ElseIf i >= Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value)) Then
            Controls("C" & (i)).Caption = Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "d")
            
            Controls("C" & (i)).ControlTipText = Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "m/d/yyyy")
            End If
            
            If Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "mmmm") = ((Month_Box.Value)) Then
            If Controls("C" & (i)).BackColor <> &HFFFFFF Then Controls("C" & (i)).BackColor = &HFFFFFF
            Controls("C" & (i)).Font.Bold = True
            
            If Format(DateAdd("d", (i - Weekday((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), _
            ((Month_Box.Value) & "/1/" & (Year_Box.Value))), "m/d/yyyy") = Format(This_Day, "m/d/yyyy") Then Controls("C" & (i)).SetFocus
            Else
            If Controls("C" & (i)).BackColor <> &H80000016 Then Controls("C" & (i)).BackColor = &H8000000F
            Controls("C" & (i)).Font.Bold = False
            End If
                
        Next i
    
    End Sub

    Hello SHIQIANG

    Thanks for sharing your problem. Typically, we are unable to perform such tasks in Excel. However, you can try using an Excel VBA Sub-procedure I have developed. It will display all the color indexes of the selected cells in the Immediate Window. The idea works perfectly if background is set manually or only one conditional formatting rule is applied in a cell. You can easily modify the formula for multiple conditional formatting rules based on your needs.

    OUTPUT Overview:

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Sub GetConditionalFormattingColor()
    
        Dim cell As Range
        Dim colorIndex As Variant
    
        For Each cell In Selection
            If cell.FormatConditions.Count > 0 And cell.Value <> "" Then
                colorIndex = cell.FormatConditions(1).Interior.colorIndex
                Debug.Print "Background color index for cell " & cell.Address & ": " & colorIndex
            Else
                colorIndex = cell.Interior.colorIndex
                
                If colorIndex = -4142 Then
                    Debug.Print "Currently, the Cell " & cell.Address & " does not have any color."
                Else
                    Debug.Print "Background color index for cell " & cell.Address & ": " & colorIndex
                End If

    In your case, the first and second arguments in the formula are for the start and end dates; you can use 11 3rd arguments to consider only Sunday as the weekend. In the 4th argument, you insert the specified holiday.

    =NETWORKDAYS.INTL(startDate, endDate, weekend, holidays)

    I have developed a formula for January by focusing on your specified weekends and holidays.

    Hi ANDREW G,

    Thank you very much for reading our articles.

    You wanted to know a way to run the macro periodically without opening any file that will auto-refresh all the Excel files in a certain folder.

    Here, I will discuss a way to fulfill your requirements. But to run a macro you need to open an Excel file and insert a macro in it. After that, the macro will refresh all your files in the mentioned folder. We will use the Task Scheduler feature of Windows to run the macro periodically.

    1. First, insert the following macro in an Excel file named Refresh. The macro will be inserted into the workbook.
    2. Then, save and close the macro and workbook.
    3. The first part of the macro is a workbook event that will run whenever the workbook opens.
      Private Sub Workbook_Open()
      
          ThisWorkbook.Application.Visible = False
      
          Call AutoRefreshFolder
      
          ThisWorkbook.Application.Visible = True
      
          ThisWorkbook.Close
      
          Application.Quit
      
      End Sub
      
      Public Sub AutoRefreshFolder()
      
      Dim mrf As Object
      
      Dim mfolder As Object
      
      Dim mfile As Object
      
          mPath = "C:\Users\Alok Paul\Desktop\Softeko\Auto Refresh Excel File Without Opening\"
      
      Set mrf = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      
      Set mfolder = mrf.GetFolder(mPath)
      
       With Application
      
              .DisplayAlerts = False
      
              .ScreenUpdating = False
      
              .EnableEvents = False
      
              .AskToUpdateLinks = False
      
       End With
      
       For Each mfile In mfolder.Files
      
          If Right(mfile.Name, 4) = "xlsx" Or Right(mfile.Name, 3) = "xls" Then
      
                  Workbooks.Open mPath & mfile.Name

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience. It seems like there might be an issue with the X-axis formatting.

    To address the x-axis displaying as 1900, try the following steps:

    Format X-Axis: After combining the scatter plots, right-click on the x-axis and select Format Axis. Check the settings to ensure the date format is correctly applied to your month values.

    Date Formatting: Make sure that the Month values on the x-axis are recognized as dates. You may need to format the cells containing the monthly data as dates if they are not already.

    Data Source: Double-check the data source for your scatter plot. Confirm that the Month values are correctly assigned to the x-axis.

    X-Axis Labels: Ensure that the x-axis labels correspond to the Month values. Adjust the labels if necessary.

    If you face the issues again, please provide more details about your data and the steps you followed, and I will do my best to help you.

    Please let us know if your problem is solved or not.

    Hi ED,

    Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, directly importing your Yahoo Finance watchlist into Excel for stock details retrieval is not feasible due to technical limitations.

    Reason:

    Yahoo Finance watchlists are dynamic web pages primarily rendered by JavaScript, while Excel’s Data > From Web feature captures static HTML snapshots. This fundamental difference prevents Excel from capturing the interactive and user-specific nature of watchlists.

    As an alternative solution, I recommend downloading the template from this link. Add your company names from the watchlist to this template. This template facilitates tracking and decision-making for your listed stocks within Excel.

    We trust that this solution aligns with your interests and needs.

    Hi JAMES MARTIN,

    Thank you for your positive feedback and for taking the time to recreate the example from the article. I’m glad you found the non-VBA REGEX example useful for your learning. I rechecked the process, and it worked fine for me. Did you recreate the example on our provided Excel file or try it on another workbook? For our provided workbook, if you want to recreate another named range, then you might need another name or a space, as you mentioned. However, it’s always helpful to receive feedback. If you have any further questions or suggestions, feel free to let us know. Your input is appreciated!

    Hi ISRAVEL,

    To achieve this in Excel, you can use the COUNTIF function to count the occurrences of each number and then check which numbers occur more than twice. Here’s how you can set up your Excel sheet:

    Assuming your numbers are in column A starting from A2, you can use the following formula in another cell to get the count of numbers that appear more than twice: =COUNTIF(A:A, A2)

    Drag down this formula for each number in your list. This will give you the count of each number.

    Then, you can use another column to check if the count is greater than 2: =IF(B2>2, "More than two", "Not more than two")

    Drag this formula down for each number in your list.

    This setup will give you a clear indication of which numbers occur more than twice in your list.

    I hope this comment will help you get your required output. Please let us know in the comment section if you have any other queries.

    Hello OLIVER,

    I hope you are doing well. Thank u for your query. Well, you can use the below formula to extract only the minimum value in the same cell.

    =MIN(IFERROR(VALUE(MID($B$4:$B$8, FIND(":", $B$4:$B$8) + 1, LEN($B$4:$B$8))), ""))

    Note: Change the range (B4:B8) according to your dataset.

    Hi Kim, thanks for reaching out. Here’s a solution to your query to run the VBA code from the command prompt.

    Here, I have used the VBA code shown in Method 4 of this article. The name of this macro is “Sheet3.SortPivotTableByValues” according to this article. Use it in your workbook and modify it according to your references.

    Now, create a Notepad/Text document file and copy the following code in it. Change the file location and macro name if needed. Keep in mind that this macro was written in a sheet. So the sheet name should be added before the name of the Sub procedure.

    Option Explicit
    
    On Error Resume Next 
    
    ExcelMacroExample
    
    Sub ExcelMacroExample()
    
      Dim xlApp
    
      Dim xlBook
    
      Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    
      Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Open("C:\Users\DELL\Desktop\SortPivot.xlsm", 0, True)
    
      xlBook.Application.Visible = True
    
      xlApp.Run "Sheet26.SortPivotTableByValues"
    
      Set xlBook = Nothing
    
      Set xlApp = Nothing
    
    End Sub

    Now, save the file as a .vbs extension file. In this case, I named it RunMacro.vbs.

    After that, open the Command Prompt or cmd.exe. Press Windows + R buttons and type cmd in the Run dialog box and click OK.

    The Command Prompt will appear. Copy and paste the following line and press Enter: cd "C:\Users\DELL\Desktop”

    After that, copy and paste the following code in the next line and press Enter.

    cscript RunMacro.vbs

    Finally, your .xlsm file will open with the Pivot Table sorted. Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Hi Chua!

    It brings me great joy to know that you found our advice helpful. You are most welcome. As for troubleshooting your problem, it would be best if you could provide us with the Excel file. However, you could use the following steps to try to solve your problem on your own.

    1. Go to your workbook. Right-click on the sheet tab where you are performing your calculation and select View Code.
    2. Inside the code writing space, write the following code:
      Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
      
          Call ForcedReCalculation
      
      End Sub
      
      Sub ForcedReCalculation()
      
          Application.CalculateFull
      
      End Sub
    3. Save your workbook (as .xlsm format)
    4. Rerun your calculation.

    If your problem is not yet solved, please join our ExcelDemy Forum and post this problem with your Excel file attached to it.

    Dear MARCOS,

    Thank you for your query regarding the convertible bond pricing model presented in this article. Your query is valid, convertible bonds are bonds with the option to be converted into common stock. The conversion price refers to the price per share at which a convertible security (such as corporate bonds) can be converted into common stock.

    The formula for conversion pricing is: Conversion Price = Market Price of Convertible Bond / Conversion Ratio

    To find the conversion price, you need the “Conversion Ratio”, which is the number of shares that investors receive upon conversion. You can divide the Bond Value (C17) by the Conversion Ratio (C18) to find the Conversion Price (C19) as illustrated below.

    I hope this clarification is helpful. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

    Dear DORABABU

    Thank you for your comment and your insightful observation. You are correct in pointing out that making prepayments towards the principal amount of a home loan can indeed result in a reduction in the total number of EMIs. This is an important consideration and can have a significant impact on the overall loan repayment timeline.

    To incorporate this feature into the home loan EMI calculator, you can make the following adjustments to the existing formula:

    Update Total Number of Months (N):

    Instead of fixing the total number of months as G4×12, you can dynamically adjust it based on the prepayments made. You can introduce a new variable, say M, representing the total number of months after considering prepayments. The formula for M would be: M=G4×12−Number of Prepayment Months

    Modify the PMT Function for EMI Calculation:

    Update the formula for EMI calculation (in cell C7) to reflect the adjusted total number of months (M): =ABS(PMT(E4/12,M,F7))

    By making these changes, the calculator will dynamically adjust the total number of EMIs based on the prepayments made, providing you with a more accurate representation of the impact of principal payments on the loan tenure.

    I hope this addresses your query. If you have any further questions or if there’s anything else you’d like to discuss, please feel free to ask.

    Hello HANS ENGELS,

    Thanks for your query. To extract data from the website to Excel automatically when the website requires login credentials, you must apply web scrapping techniques and automation tools.

    First, you need to understand the web structure of that website and then use web scraping tools to get access to that website and extract data based on your needs.

    Hi Sandhya,

    You can add 45 days with the invoice date and use it as a replacement for TODAY() in any of the formulas from above. Or, you can use a simple IF formula.
    Here is an example, the invoice date is in cell C13. Use the formula: =IF(C5>$C$13+45,"Overdue","Not Overdue")

    Make sure to use the correct reference style if you intend to drag the fill handle.

    Dear NORTH80,

    Thank you very much for reading our articles.
    You have mentioned that, when pulling historical dividend information you faced a problem. The problem is:
    “Expression.Error: The column ‘Dividends’ of the table wasn’t found.
    Details:
    Dividends”

    Here is the modified query code to solve the mentioned problem.

    
    let
        Ticker = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Ticker"]}[Content]{0}[Column1],
        StartDate = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="StartDate"]}[Content]{0}[Column1],
        EndDate = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="EndDate"]}[Content]{0}[Column1],
        Source = Csv.Document(Web.Contents("https://query1.finance.yahoo.com/v7/finance/download/"&Ticker&"?period1"&StartDate&"&period2"&EndDate&"&interval=1d&events=div&includeAdjustedClose=true"),[Delimiter=",", Columns=2, Encoding=65001, QuoteStyle=QuoteStyle.None]),
        #"Use First Row as Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(Source, [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
        #"Change Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Use First Row as Headers",{{"Date", type date}, {"Dividends", type number}})
    in
        #"Change Type"

    Hello VARUN

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your requirements. Your appreciation means a lot to us.

    Yes, We can provide information on the Indian stock market with charts in dollars (INR) instead of dollars ($).

    You can download this template below for your help. Additionally, I’m also writing down the steps so that you can modify it yourself.

    Download Excel file: Track-Indian-Stock-Market.xlsx

    Use these steps for indian stock market tracking:

    1. Add Indian Stock company Names.
    2. Select the range (i.e. B5:B9).
    3. Go to the Data tab > Data Types group > Stocks.
      It will automatically update the Stock Tracker names. However, the values will show an Error Warning.
    4. Select the cell (i.e.C5) > Click the drop-down menu beside the error warning > Click Update format.
      It will automatically update the price in INR format.
    5. Use the Fill handle feature to apply the change in the column.

    Repeat the same process for other columns where necessary till J or Beta Column.

    To update the format of Our Stock information section (Column K to P), follow these steps:

    1. Select the Current Price Column (i.e. B5:B9)
    2. Go to the Home tab > Clipboard group > Format Painter icon.
    3. Select the range (i.e. L5:M9) to apply the format painter. You will notice the paint icon beside the cursor.

    It will apply the same currency format to the applied range. Use the same process for Column O and P.

    To update the format with Conditional formatting of Current Investment Column, copy the formatting of Changes (INR) column using Format Painter and paste it. It will automatically update both currency format and conditional formatting.

    Note: The charts will update automatically.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Hi Laurie!

    It feels good to know that you found our content understandable. Judging from you query, I think you want a continuing compound interest formula where the loan doesn’t have a specific term/year.

    The term continuous compound interest is used to emphasize the continuous compounding of interest, as opposed to discrete compounding periods. Here,  the compounding frequency becomes infinite, resulting in a continuous growth formula. Let us look at the formula below:

    A=P0ert 

    Where,

    • A is the future value,
    • P0 is the principal amount,
    • r is the annual interest rate,
    • t is the time in years, and
    • e is the mathematical constant approximately equal to 2.71828.

    For example, if you invest $1,000 at an annual interest rate of 5% continuously compounded for 2 years, the future value can be calculated using the continuous compounding formula.

    Hello LAKSHMI,

    I hope you are doing well. Thank you for your query. You can combine sheets row-wise using the VBA code provided in the first method of this article. (Merge Data Sets from Multiple Sheets into One Sheet with VBA Row-wise).

    Hello Lea, thanks for reaching out. Here’s a solution for your query.

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        On Error Resume Next
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        
        ' Check if the changed range is in Sheet1 A1:A67
        If Not Intersect(Target, Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:A67")) Is Nothing Then
            ' Update data in Sheet2 A26:A85
            Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A26:A85").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:A67").Value
            
            ' Copy formatting from Sheet1 A1:A67 to Sheet2 A26:A85
            Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:A67").Copy
            Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A26:A85").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats

        End If
        
        Application.EnableEvents = True
        On Error GoTo 0
    End Sub
    

    Procedure:

    1. Right click on the Sheet1 tab of your workbook and select View Code.

    2. Paste the code and save the workbook.

    3. Now, if you do any formatting and insert a value in the range of A1:A67 of Sheet1, you can see the values and formatting get copied in the Sheet2.

    Hello ODMA

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your queries. The previous question by ABIGAYLE PAULSON was to automate the idea that the filtering algorithm will be applied if the drop-down list in Sheet8 is changed. After analyzing your requirements, I understand that you do not want to use the filter algorithm if the drop-down is empty.

    I have developed an Excel VBA Worksheet_Change Event that will fulfil your goal. All you need is to paste the following code in the sheet module of Sheet8 (the sheet that contains the drop-down).

    Excel VBA Event Procedure:

    
    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        
        Dim category As Range
        Dim dropdownCell As Range
        Dim ws7 As Worksheet
        Dim ws8 As Worksheet
        
        Set ws7 = Worksheets("Sheet7")
        Set ws8 = Worksheets("Sheet8")
        
        Set dropdownCell = ws8.Range("C2")
        
        If Not Intersect(Target, dropdownCell) Is Nothing Then
    
            If dropdownCell.Value = "" Then
                ws7.AutoFilterMode = False
            Else
                Set category = dropdownCell
                With ws7.Range("B4:G13")
                    .AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=category.Value
                End With
            End If
        End If
    
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT Overview:

    Hopefully, the event procedure will help; good luck.

    Hello POOJA

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your requirements with such clarity. The problem you want a solution for can quickly be developed using several Excel VBA Sub-procedures, Event Procedures, and a UserForm.
    Here is an algorithm you can follow:

    1. You have to declare a public variable to store the file path.

    2. Adding sheet names to combo box list.

    3. Displaying the data in a list box.

    4. Copying the selected columns to display the Data Sheet.

    Hello ANDREW

    Yes, that’s correct. In both methods described in the article, you would need to open the file containing the macro to auto-refresh the target Excel files. However, once the macro is executed, it will open and refresh the specified Excel files without manually opening them individually.

    Hello RAMI

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your queries. You want to create multiple stopwatches in a sheet. Of course, the requirement is very much achievable.

    I have displayed four stopwatches in the B4, F4, B15, and F15 cells.

    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    Follow these steps:

    Press Alt+F11 >> Click on Insert followed by Module >> Insert the following code in the module >> Save.

    
    Option Explicit
    
    Public countDown1 As Date
    Public countDown2 As Date
    Public countDown3 As Date
    Public countDown4 As Date
    
    'For Stopwatch 1:
    Sub StartTimer1()
        countDown1 = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Range("B4") = Range("B4") + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Application.OnTime countDown1, "StartTimer1"
    End Sub
    Sub ResetTimer1()
        Range("B4") = TimeValue("00:00:0")
    End Sub
    Sub StopTimer1()
        Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=countDown1, Procedure:="StartTimer1", Schedule:=False
    End Sub
    
    'For Stopwatch 2:
    Sub StartTimer2()
        countDown2 = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Range("F4") = Range("F4") + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Application.OnTime countDown2, "StartTimer2"
    End Sub
    Sub ResetTimer2()
        Range("F4") = TimeValue("00:00:0")
    End Sub
    Sub StopTimer2()
        Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=countDown2, Procedure:="StartTimer2", Schedule:=False
    End Sub
    
    'For Stopwatch 3:
    Sub StartTimer3()
        countDown3 = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Range("B15") = Range("B15") + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Application.OnTime countDown3, "StartTimer3"
    End Sub
    Sub ResetTimer3()
        Range("B15") = TimeValue("00:00:0")
    End Sub
    Sub StopTimer3()
        Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=countDown3, Procedure:="StartTimer3", Schedule:=False

    Hello SINTA R

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your queries. The formula you have mentioned is almost correct. However, you miss to insert the <> sign somehow in your formula.

    You can apply the following formulas:
    For Important & Urgent:
    =IFERROR(INDEX($C$4:$C$30,SMALL(IF((LEN($C$4:$C$30)<>0)*($D$4:$D$30="Yes")*($E$4:$E$30="Yes"),ROW($C$4:$C$30)-ROW($C$3),""),ROW(C4)-ROW($C$3))),"")
    For Important & Not Urgent:
    =IFERROR(INDEX($C$4:$C$30,SMALL(IF((LEN($C$4:$C$30)<>0)*($D$4:$D$30="Yes")*($E$4:$E$30="No"),ROW($C$4:$C$30)-ROW($C$3),""),ROW(C4)-ROW($C$3))),"")
    For Not Important & Urgent:
    =IFERROR(INDEX($C$4:$C$30,SMALL(IF((LEN($C$4:$C$30)<>0)*($D$4:$D$30="No")*($E$4:$E$30="Yes"),ROW($C$4:$C$30)-ROW($C$3),""),ROW(C4)-ROW($C$3))),"")
    For Not Important & Not Urgent:

        Set Destination = ThisWorkbook
        
        Dim Worksheets As Variant
        ReDim Worksheets(3)
        
        Worksheets(1) = "Sheet1"
        Worksheets(2) = "Sheet2"
        Worksheets(3) = "Sheet3"
        
        Dim i As Variant
        Dim rng As Range

    Hello JAMES

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your queries. To return the text value of two cells in different columns if they match, you can combine the EXACT, IF and ISTEXT functions.

    Excel Formula: =IF(AND(ISTEXT(A2), ISTEXT(B2), EXACT(A2, B2)), A2:B2, "No Match")

    So, in simpler terms, the formula checks if both cells A2 and B2 contain text and if the text in both cells is the same. If they are, it returns the values from cells A2 and B2 together. If not, it returns “No Match”.

    OUTPUT:

    Hopefully, the idea will help you; good luck.

    Hello GARY SHERMAN

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problem. You want to find the total number of sheets for each material type. To do so, you can use the SUMIF function to reach your goal.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Select an empty cell.

    2. Insert the following formula: =SUMIF($A$2:$A$22,$D5, $B$2:$B$22)

    3. Hit Enter.

    4. Use the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula down.

    As a result, you will see an output like the following image.

    Hi Karthick

    Thank you for reaching out with your inquiry! Designing a shift schedule for a 4-member team roster with diverse shift patterns can be challenging.

    Each shift, A, B, C, and D, has a schedule for weekdays, weekends, and special arrangements on Wednesdays. Setting these parameters upfront allows you to assign team members to their shifts more efficiently.

    On Wednesdays, all four members are active but in different roles. It would be best if you had a flexible framework to handle this. One idea is to create a dynamic formula that adjusts shift assignments based on the day of the week and specific requirements. This might involve using conditional logic to distribute team members across day and night shifts, ensuring we have enough coverage while using resources effectively.

    Don’t forget to explore the resources in the article, including the practice workbook, to gain hands-on experience with building and refining your shift scheduler. Good luck.

    Hello ERAL

    Good to see you again. You wanted shifts like, Instead of using D1, D2, D3, D4, OFF, A1, A2, A3, OFF, is it possible to use just like this only D, D, D, D, OFF, A, A, A, OFF. Technically, it is impossible without VBA, but I have found a trick to reach your goal. I have used extra spaces in the Settings_Shift_Legend to make the shifts unique.

    Hello FRED FUTCH

    Thanks for sharing your problem. You might be experiencing some formatting issues in Excel when inputting numbers.

    Ensure that the cells where you are typing numbers are formatted as General or Number. Sometimes, Excel may automatically apply a different format if it detects a specific pattern in the data.

    Sometimes, Excel’s behaviour can be influenced by the regional settings on your computer. Make sure that your computer’s regional settings are configured correctly.

    Hello FRANKY LAM

    Thanks for visiting our blog and sharing your problem. Based on your problem, it seems the VBA User-defined function named Code128 is not recalculating on your system.

    So, you can try forced fully recalculating using the CalculateFull property of the Excel Application.

    Follow these steps: Right-click on the sheet name tab >> Click on View Code >> Paste the following code in the sheet module and Save:

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        Call ForcedReCalculation

    Thanks for visiting our blog and posting an interesting comment. You want to convert a number (e.g., 10245) into a string where each digit of the number is represented by its word form (e.g., “One Zero Two Four Five”).

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA User-defined function named NumberToString to fulfil your goal. I am using the function in a Sub-procedure. However, you can also use it in Excel cells like other worksheet functions.

        Dim result As String
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim digit As String
        
        Dim digits() As String
        digits = Split("Zero,One,Two,Three,Four,Five,Six,Seven,Eight,Nine", ",")
        
        For i = 1 To Len(num)
            digit = Mid(num, i, 1)
            result = result & digits(Val(digit)) & " "
        Next i
        
        NumberToString = Trim(result)
    
    End Function
    
    Sub TestNumberToWords()
        
        Dim num As Long
        num = 146897
        Debug.Print NumberToString(CStr(num))

    Hello ASNATH

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You want to know how to use the COUNT, IF and AVERAGE functions in a formula. I am presenting an example where I will form a formula using these functions.

    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    Suppose your dataset has Employee ID, Name, Department, Age, and Salary columns. You want to find out the average salary based on department. You can get the result using only the AVERAGEIF function, but if the department does not exist, it will provide a #DIV/0! Error. So, to handle this type of situation, you can combine COUNT, IF, SUM and AVERAGE functions:

    =IF(SUM(IF(C2:C11=B14, COUNT(1),""))<=0,"There is no employee.",AVERAGE(IF(C2:C11=B14, E2:E11)))

    Hello VICTORIA SHARP

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your requirements. Based on your comment, it seems like you’re looking for a dynamic link between your Excel sheet and Word document to ensure that any updates in the Excel sheet reflect immediately in the Word document.

    The solution provided in the article serves this purpose quite effectively. Using the Mail Merge feature in Word, you can connect your Excel sheet (containing the Conflict of Interest Register data) and your Word document.

    So, do not hesitate to follow the steps outlined in the article to establish the connection between the two. Once set up, any changes you make to the Excel sheet will automatically propagate to the Word document when you update the merge fields. This way, you can maintain an accurate and current Conflict of Interest Register without manual effort. Good luck.

    Hello TIM

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your query. You want an Excel VBA code that works perfectly for multiple columns and rows of checkboxes. I am presenting an enhanced VBA sub-procedure that may help you.

    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    Enhanced Excel VBA Code:

    
    Sub AlignCheckbox()
        
        Dim xRg As Range
        Dim chkBox As OLEObject
        Dim chkFBox As CheckBox
        Dim cell As Range
        Dim cellWidth As Double
        Dim cellHeight As Double
        
        On Error Resume Next
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        
        For Each chkBox In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects
            If TypeName(chkBox.Object) = "CheckBox" Then
                Set xRg = chkBox.TopLeftCell
                With xRg
                    cellWidth = .Width
                    cellHeight = .Height
                    chkBox.Width = cellWidth * 2 / 3
                    chkBox.Left = .Left + (cellWidth - chkBox.Width) / 2
                    chkBox.Top = .Top + (cellHeight - chkBox.Height) / 2
                End With
            End If
        Next
        
        For Each chkFBox In ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes
            Set xRg = chkFBox.TopLeftCell
            With xRg
                cellWidth = .Width
                cellHeight = .Height
                chkFBox.Width = cellWidth * 2 / 3
                chkFBox.Height = cellHeight
                chkFBox.Left = .Left + (cellWidth - chkFBox.Width) / 2
                chkFBox.Top = .Top + (cellHeight - chkFBox.Height) / 2
            End With
        Next
        
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    
    End Sub
    

    Hopefully, the sub-procedure will reduce your hassle. Good luck.

    Hello KHALED

    Thanks for your nice words. Your appreciation means a lot to us. You only want to get the city name from lat and long values.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed another VBA User-defined function named ExtractCityNames that will extract the city names by taking input from the User-defined function mentioned in this article.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt+F11.

    2. Click on Insert followed by Module.

    3. Paste the following code in the Module and save it.

    
    Function ExtractCityNames(inputTextFromUDF As String) As String
        
        Dim inputText As String
        Dim splitText() As String
        Dim cityName As String
        Dim i As Integer
        
        inputText = inputTextFromUDF
        
        splitText = Split(inputText, vbCrLf)
        
        For i = 0 To UBound(splitText)
            splitText(i) = Trim(splitText(i))
            Dim parts() As String
            parts = Split(splitText(i), ",")
            
            If IsNumeric(Trim(parts(UBound(parts) - 1))) Then
                cityName = Trim(parts(UBound(parts) - 2))
            Else
                cityName = Trim(parts(UBound(parts) - 1))
            End If
            
            ExtractCityNames = ExtractCityNames & cityName & vbCrLf
        Next i
    
    End Function
    
    Function ReverseGeocoder(lati As Double, longi As Double) As String
    
        On Error GoTo 0
        Dim xD As New MSXML2.DOMDocument
        Dim URL As String, vbErr As String
        xD.async = False
        URL = "https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?lat=" + CStr(lati) + _
        "&lon=" + CStr(longi)
        xD.Load ("https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?lat=" + CStr(lati) + _
        "&lon=" + CStr(longi))
        If xD.parseError.ErrorCode <> 0 Then
            Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbErr
            ReverseGeocoder = xD.parseError.reason
        Else
            xD.SetProperty "SelectionLanguage", "XPath"
            Dim loca As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
            Set loca = xD.SelectSingleNode(" / reversegeocode / result")
            If loca Is Nothing Then
                Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbErr
                ReverseGeocoder = xD.XML
            Else
                Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbOK
                ReverseGeocoder = loca.Text
            End If
        End If
        Exit Function
    0:
        Debug.Print Err.Description
    
    End Function
    

    4. Return to the sheet and select cell D3.

    5. Insert the following formula and hit Enter.

    =ExtractCityNames(ReverseGeocoder(B3,C3))

    6. Finally, copy the formula down using the Fill Handle icon.

    Things to Remember: The return time can be longer than usual as we use complex Excel VBA User-defined functions.

    I am attaching the solution workbook for better understanding. Hopefully, the idea will fulfil your goal. Stay Blessed.

    Hello Abdul

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You want to highlight the scenario where a student, Raju, fails in one subject out of five but still manages to achieve a high percentage overall due to scoring well in the remaining subjects.

    Basically, you want to ensure that Raju isn’t labelled a failure just because he fails one subject. In your view, Raju’s overall performance across all subjects should involve when determining his pass/fail status, not just the grade in one subject.

    In this case, you use the following formula: =IF(COUNTIF(C5:G5, "<33")=0, "Pass", IF(AVERAGE(C5:G5)>=60, "Pass", "Fail"))

    Here, the passing threshold for individuals is 33 and the average is 60.

    Hopefully, you have found the idea helpful. Good luck.

    Hello NIKKI

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your queries. You want to automatically fill a cell background to yellow anytime a change is made to the data inside the cell.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA change event that will fulfil your goal. To demonstrate, assume you want to auto-fill a cell in column A to yellow.

    To do so, open the sheet module => Insert the following code and Save.

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("A1:A100")) Is Nothing Then
            Target.Interior.Color = RGB(255, 255, 0) ' Yellow color
        End If
    
    End Sub
    

    Now, return to the sheet and change some cell values in column A to get an output like the following GIF.

    Hopefully, the idea will help you. Good luck.

    Hello SCOTT

    Thanks a lot for your kind words. You want to specify a particular column from a table in Excel VBA ComboBox’s RowSource property.

    Output Overview:

    Let’s assume you have a table named Data in the sheet Database with several columns, and you want to populate your ComboBox with the values from a specific column, let’s say the Project column.
    You can use the following format for the RowSource property: =Database!Data[Project]

    Hopefully, the idea will help. I have also attached the solution workbook for better understanding. Good luck.

    Hello ARONN

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your requirements. You want to link a checkbox directly to another one with no cell reference.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel Event Procedure that will fulfil your goal.

    Output Overview:

    If you check the first box, a linked check box (second check box) will also be checked or vice versa.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Insert two checkboxes from ActiveX Control.

    2. Go to the sheet module, insert the following code, and Save.

    
    Private Sub CheckBox1_Change()
    
        If CheckBox1.Value = True Then
            CheckBox2.Value = True
        Else
            CheckBox2.Value = False

    Hello RENE

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problem. You have observed that the formula works for the first eight rows. When you expand to include cells B5:B144 and C5:C144, it returns #N/A. However, our machine works perfectly fine, even though we work with an extensive range. The FILTER function is only available in Excel for Microsoft 365 and Excel 2021. Assuming you are using one of these versions.

    To resolve your problem, double-check the references in the formula to ensure they correspond to the correct columns and cells. Confirm that the formula is entered correctly without any typos or syntax errors. Good luck.

    Hello JITHU

    Thanks for reaching out. You are right about the file not allowing the opening of macros. The password is recovered using the Zip Tool, which will not let you open macros. In the article, the writer has demonstrated the file as a macro-free file when using the Zip tool. That’s why when changing back to the file type Zip to Excel, the .xlsx is used.

    If you are working on a macro-enabled file when recovering a password using Zip Tool, change the file’s extension (when changing the file type Zip to Excel) to .xlsm instead of .xlsx.

    For the Time_Box to work properly, paste the following code in the UserForm.

    
    Private Sub Time_Box_Change()
    
        Dim cellValue As String
        
        cellValue = Selection.Value

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your question. I would say yes, you have found the solution to your problem. You can fix this problem by changing the date format in your computer’s date and time settings. Change the date format to your desired one.

    However, I am delighted that I have an ultimate solution. I am presenting an Excel VBA sub-procedure that will display the date format based on the PC date & time setting.

    Hello Karan

    Thanks for sharing your problem. The practice workbook attached to the article should be usable in Windows 11 OS.

    As the Excel file is macro-enabled, check your Excel security settings: Go to Excel Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Macro Settings, and enable macros if they are disabled.

    Besides, ensure that the Code 128 font is correctly installed on your system.

    Hopefully, these actions will resolve your issue. Good luck.

    Hello Jon Jacobson

    Thanks for your nice words. The code and font work perfectly fine in our machine for numbers greater than 999. See the following Image,

    You can test the barcodes shown in the image using your barcode gun. On our end, we have found the original text accurately.

    It is impossible to thoroughly observe your problem remotely and not glance at your machine. Make sure you have installed the Code 128 barcode font properly. You can check the scanner manual for specific settings related to Code 128 barcodes.

    If you still face this type of problem, you can share the issue within the ExcelDemy Forum with details of your machine. Stay blessed.

    Hello TH

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your requirements. You wanted a roaster including D1, D2, DN, N1, N2, and O to rotate full month and continue next month.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have created a roaster to fulfil your goal. So, follow these:

    1. Change the Shift Type based on your need.

    2. Modify the named range for year values.

    3. Select cell P5 and apply the following formula: =EOMONTH(I5,R4) + E5 -1

    4. Select cell F7, insert the formula: =IF(E7>=$P$5,"",E7+1) And drag the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula down.

    5. Select cell E6, insert the formula: =TEXT(F7, "ddd") And drag the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula down.

    6. Select cell E8, insert the formula: =IF(OR($C8="",E$7=""), "",IF(D8= "",C8, INDEX(Settings_Shift_Legend, IF(MATCH(D8,Settings_Shift_Legend,0)+1>COUNTA(Settings_Shift_Legend), 1,MATCH(D8,Settings_Shift_Legend,0)+1))))
    And drag the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula.

    Return to the sheet, and use the file like the following GIF.

    Hopefully, the idea will work for you. I am attaching the solution workbook for better understanding. Good luck.

    Hello KIMHONG

    Thanks for sharing your query. In your case, an employee works 11 hours and starts working at 5:30 AM. If the overtime is between 0 and 15 minutes, you wanted a formula that returns 0 minutes. If it’s 15 minutes or more, it’s considered as 30 minutes.

    You can achieve the goal by developing a formula using the IF and TIME functions. Follow these steps:

    1. Select the intended cell.

    2. Apply the following formula: =IF((E3-TIME(5,30,0)-(11/24) > TIME(0, 15, 0)), TIME(0, 30, 0)*24, TIME(0, 0, 0))

    3. Drag the Fill Handle icon to copy the formula down.

    Hello NC

    Thanks for sharing your requirements. You wanted a setup not to overwrite the existing entry but to create a new entry timestamp when an item is checked in or out more than once.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure to fulfil your requirements. So, follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt+F11 to the VBA Editor window.

    2. Click on Insert followed by Module.

    3. Insert the following code in the module and Run.

    Hello KAJA POHAR

    Thanks for your compliments. Your appreciation means a lot to us. You wanted to work with a read-only Excel file; however, you had issues with the existing VBA code.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure by modifying the existing VBA code. The main idea behind the sub-procedure is it changes the File Access property to xlReadWrite, and before closing, it changes the File Access back to xlReadOnly.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Press Alt+F11 to open VBE.

    2. Click on Insert followed by Module.

    3. Paste the following code in the module and Run.

    
    Public Sub AutoRefreshFile()
    
        Dim mrf As Object
        Dim mfile As Object
        Dim mPath As String
        
        With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
            If .Show = -1 Then
                mPath = .SelectedItems(1)
            Else
                Exit Sub
            End If
        End With
        
        Set mrf = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        
        With Application
            .DisplayAlerts = False
            .ScreenUpdating = False
            .EnableEvents = False
            .AskToUpdateLinks = False
        End With
         
        If Right(mrf.GetFileName(mPath), 4) = "xlsx" Or Right(mrf.GetFileName(mPath), 3) = "xls" Then
            Dim wb As Workbook
            Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=mPath)
            
            If wb.ReadOnly = True Then
                wb.ChangeFileAccess Mode:=xlReadWrite
            End If
            
            If wb.ReadOnly Then
                wb.ChangeFileAccess Mode:=xlReadWrite
            End If
            
            wb.UpdateLink Name:=wb.LinkSources
            
            wb.ChangeFileAccess Mode:=xlReadOnly
            
            wb.Close SaveChanges:=True
        
        End If
        
        With Application
            .DisplayAlerts = True
            .ScreenUpdating = True
            .EnableEvents = True
            .AskToUpdateLinks = True
        End With
    
    End Sub
    

    As a result, you will see an output like the following GIF.

    Hopefully, the idea will help you to reach your goal. Good luck!

    Hello L. O.

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problem. You are facing difficulties with including a heading in a chart, and those headings affect the graph’s appearance.

    As the headings are treated as zeros, you can exclude them from the data by combining the IF, ISNUMBER and NA functions. The formula structure can be like the following:

    =IF(ISNUMBER(A2), A2, NA())

    This formula checks if the value in cell A2 is a number. If it is, it includes the value. Otherwise, it returns #N/A. The #N/A values will be ignored in the chart, and the line won’t connect to them.

    Instead of a scatter plot, you might consider using a line chart or other chart types that suit your needs better. Line charts, for example, automatically ignore #N/A values and don’t connect them.

    Hopefully, the ideas will help you to overcome your situation. Good luck!

    Hello NUNOF

    Thanks for your beautiful words. Your appreciation means a lot to us. We are delighted to know you have learned a lot from our blog.

    The issue you describe hampers performance for sure in such scenarios. I have gone through the article and also investigated your problem. What I have found: Perhaps you are calling your desired macro within another worksheet event like Worksheet_Calculate instead of the Worksheet_Change event of cell $K$10, which results in calling the macro unintentionally.

    When the cell values change by formulas, the Worksheet_Change event will not trigger. So, call your macro or sub-procedure within a change event. In your case, the code within the sheet module can be like the following:

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, Range("K10")) Is Nothing Then
            
            Call GreetingToNUNOF
        
        End If
    
    End Sub
    
    
    Sub GreetingToNUNOF()
        MsgBox "Hello from ExcelDemy!"
    End Sub

    Hello ALEX

    Thanks for your nice words. Your appreciation means a lot to us.

    You are facing a difficulty like when you press the enter button on cell D5 with the formula, the barcode changes. It’s different from the original one and can’t be scanned. Providing the ultimate solution without properly glancing at your problem is very hard. However, I am giving you some ideas that might be helpful.

    Suggestions: Your issue concerns the font encoding or handling of the Code 128 font in Excel. Make sure that the Code 128 font is installed correctly on your system. Check the scanner manual for any specific settings related to Code 128 barcodes. Format the cell as Text when using the Code 128 barcode font with a custom VBA function to ensure accurate content and avoid unintended changes by Excel formatting rules.

    You can also share your problem with more details in the ExcelDemy Forum. Good luck.

                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 47
                ElseIf cell.Value = "SL 6" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 6
                ElseIf cell.Value = "FLT 33" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 33
                ElseIf cell.Value = "WB 44" Then

    Hello JOHN

    Thanks for sharing your query. You wanted to split strings within Excel cells that do not always have 3 words separated by commas. In contrast, there can be a string like one or at most three words like the following image. Besides, we must keep the cell empty if more than 3 words mean more than 2 commas exist.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed two formulas. The first formula consists of the IF, LEN, SUBSTITUTE, TRIM, and MID functions. The other formula consists of the IF, LEN, SUBSTITUTE, TRANSPOSE, and FILTERXML functions.
    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    1. Using IF, LEN, SUBSTITUTE, TRIM, and MID functions
    Follow these steps:
    Step 1: Select cell C5, insert the given formula and drag the Fill Handle icon to E5.

    =IF(LEN($B5)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE($B5,”,”,””))>2,””,TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE($B5,”,”,REPT(” “,LEN($B5))),(C$4-1)*LEN($B5)+1,LEN($B5))))

    Step 2: Select range C5:E5 and drag the Fill Handle icon to cell E10.

    2. Using FILTERXML, TRANSPOSE, IF, LEN, and SUBSTITUTE functions

    It is good to see you again. Thanks for thanking me. Your appreciation means a lot to us.

    You are right. When a cell background color is changed by conditional formatting, the cell color index remains xlColorIndexNone. When using conditional formatting to change the cell background based on a condition, it fetches the intended color, but the cell background is not changed ultimately.

    SOLUTION to the Mentioned Problem: Remove the conditional formatting from the S8:AO43 range. Use an Excel VBA Event procedure that I developed to solve your problem. This event will ultimately change the background color based on the condition.

    Follow these steps: Right-click on the sheet name tab => Click on View Code => Paste the code below in the sheet module, and Save => Return to the sheet and make changes to see the output like the following GIF.

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        Dim rng As Range
        Dim cell As Range
    
        Set rng = Me.Range("S8:AO43")
    
        If Not Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then
    
            For Each cell In Intersect(Target, rng)
    
                If cell.Value = "VAC 8" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 43
                ElseIf cell.Value = "FMLA 47" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 47
                ElseIf cell.Value = "SL 6" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 6
                ElseIf cell.Value = "FLT 33" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 33
                ElseIf cell.Value = "WB 44" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 44
                ElseIf cell.Value = "P-VAC 7" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 7
                ElseIf cell.Value = "SVC 8" Then
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = 8
                Else
                    cell.Interior.colorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
                End If
    
            Next cell
        End If
    End Sub
    

    Enhanced User-defined Function: I am delighted to share an Enhanced version of the previous sub-procedure.
    Follow these: Hover over Insert => Click on Module => Paste the following code in the module => Save.

    
    Function SumColoredCells(rng As Range, colorIndex As Long) As Double
    
        Dim cell As Range
        Dim sumValue As Double
    
        sumValue = 0
    
        For Each cell In rng
            If cell.Interior.colorIndex = colorIndex Then
    
                Dim numericPart As Double
                
                If Len(cell.Value) = 4 Then
                    numericPart = Val(Mid(cell.Value, 3))
                ElseIf Len(cell.Value) = 5 Then
                    numericPart = Val(Mid(cell.Value, 4))
                ElseIf Len(cell.Value) = 6 Then
                    numericPart = Val(Mid(cell.Value, 5))
                ElseIf Len(cell.Value) = 7 Then
                    numericPart = Val(Mid(cell.Value, 6))
                ElseIf Len(cell.Value) = 8 Then
                    numericPart = Val(Mid(cell.Value, 7))
                End If
    
                sumValue = sumValue + numericPart
            End If
        Next cell
    
        SumColoredCells = sumValue
    
    End Function
    

    Finally, to calculate the sum, Select cell Q8 => Insert the following formula => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell Q14.

    =SumColoredCells($S$8:$AO$43,P8)

    Besides, I am presenting an sub-procedure that will display the color index of a selected cell.

    
    Sub ShowColorIndex()
    
        Dim selectedCell As Range
        Dim colorIndex As Long
        
        If TypeName(Selection) = "Range" And Selection.Cells.Count = 1 Then
    
            Set selectedCell = Selection
            
            colorIndex = selectedCell.Interior.colorIndex
            
            MsgBox "Color Index of Selected Cell: " & colorIndex
        
        Else
            MsgBox "Please select a single cell to get its color index.", vbExclamation
        End If
    
    End Sub
    

    A Friendly Suggestion: Dear Nurit, we are discussing a topic different from the article. So, another visitor may get confused. It would be great if you shared your problem through the ExcelDemy Forum.

    I am also attaching the solution workbook for better understanding. Hopefully, this idea will help you reach your goal. Good luck.

Assuming you get $76.5 for overtime hours and $51 for regular hours. I am delighted to share how you can create a sheet to fulfil your goal.

    Overview of Personal Payment Tracker Sheet:

    Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Total Paid Hours
    Select cell E3 => Insert the following formula => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell E10.

    =TEXT((D3-C3-TIME(0,30,0)),”h:mm”)

    Step 2: Overtime Hours
    Select cell F3 => Insert the formula below => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell F10.

    =IF(OR(C3TIME(18,0,0)), TEXT((D3-C3-TIME(10,30,0)),”h:mm”), 0)

    Step 3: Overtime Pay
    Choose cell G3 => Insert the formula below => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell G10.

    =IFERROR(TIMEVALUE(F3)*(76.5/0.041667),0)

    Step 4: Normal Hours Pay
    Choose cell H3 => Insert the formula below => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell H10.

    =IFERROR(TIMEVALUE(E3)*(51/0.041667),0)

    Step 5: Total Pay
    Choose cell I3 => Insert the formula below => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell I10.

    =G3+H3

    Hello DAN H

    Thanks for your nice words. Your appreciation means a lot to us. Thanks once again for sharing your requirements with such clarity.

    You wanted to get an Excel VBA Sub-procedures or Excel VBA User-defined functions to calculate the distance between two addresses using Address String (for example, New York, Alaska) instead of Latitudes and Longitudes values.

    I am delighted that I developed some Excel VBA User-defined functions to fulfil your requirements.

    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Hover over Insert => Click on Module => paste the following code in the module.

    
    Public Function DistanceInKM(First_Location As String, Final_Location As String, Target_Value As String)

        Set Setup_HTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
        
        Output_Url = Initial_Point & First_Location & Ending_Point & Final_Location & Distance_Unit
        Setup_HTTP.Open "GET", Output_Url, False
        Setup_HTTP.SetRequestHeader "User-Agent", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"
        Setup_HTTP.send ("")
        DistanceInKM = Round(Round(WorksheetFunction.FilterXML(Setup_HTTP.responseText, "//TravelDistance"), 3), 0)
    End Function
    
    Public Function DistanceInMiles(First_Location As String, Final_Location As String, Target_Value As String)

        xDoc.async = False
        xDoc.Load ("https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=xml&q=" + WorksheetFunction.EncodeURL(address))
        If xDoc.parseError.ErrorCode <> 0 Then
            Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbErr
            Co_Ordinates = xDoc.parseError.reason
        Else
            xDoc.SetProperty "SelectionLanguage", "XPath"
            Dim loc As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
            Set loc = xDoc.SelectSingleNode("/searchresults/place")
            If loc Is Nothing Then
                Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbErr
                NominatimGeocode = xDoc.XML
            Else
                Application.Caller.Font.ColorIndex = vbOK
                Co_Ordinates = loc.getAttribute("lat") & "," & loc.getAttribute("lon")
            End If
        End If
    
    End Function
    

    Step 2: Select cell C9 => Insert the following formula.

    =DistanceInMiles(Co_Ordinates(C6),Co_Ordinates(C7),C2)

    Step 3: Hit Enter to see the result in cell C9.

    Step 4: Select cell C10 => Insert the following formula.

    =DistanceInKM(Co_Ordinates(C6),Co_Ordinates(C7),C2)

    Step 5: Hit Enter to see the result in cell C10.

    Things to Keep in Mind: Ensure to check Microsoft XML, v3.0 from the References – VBAProject window.

    I am attaching the solution workbook. Hopefully, these user-defined functions will help you reach your goal. Good luck.

    Hello BRIAN

    Your appreciation means a lot us. Thanks for reaching out and posting a well-layout question. You encounter an issue with hidden columns and buttons that toggle between different sheet views. And you want to delete these buttons and the hidden column features. It isn’t easy to give an exact solution without the exact details of the worksheet views. However, I have some general ideas to help you with your problem.

    First, identify the toggle buttons and go to sheet views, followed by view options. Later, delete that sheet view. Additionally, you remove the applied filters and groupings. Select the columns surrounding the hidden ones, right-click, and choose Unhide to ensure all columns are visible.

    If you still have difficulties, you can share your problem in the ExcelDemy Forum with more detailed information. Good luck!

    Hello BERNARD

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your observation. The ZIP Tool method mentioned in the article can be applicable If you have a protected sheet within a workbook.

    I have experienced the same error when the workbook is encrypted with a Password. But, if only a sheet is protected, the ZIP Tool works perfectly. When you preserve your workbook with an Encrypted Password, the ZIP Tool method will not work. So, use the VBA code to remove the password from the encrypted workbook. Good luck.

    Hello GURU

    Thanks for sharing your queries. Your Excel Data is like “01/01/23 14.20 PM” (24-Hour Clock Time does not need AM/PM extensions). You want to store “01/01/23” and “14.20 PM” in another column.

    I am presenting another sub-procedure that will fulfil your requirements by modifying the sub-procedure mentioned in the article.

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    
    Sub AdvancedSplitDateAndTime()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim lastRow As Long
        Dim i As Long
        Dim dateWithTime As Date
        Dim separatedDate As Date
        Dim separatedTime As Date
    
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        
        ws.Range("C:C").NumberFormat = "[$-en-US]h:mm AM/PM;@"
        
        lastRow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    
        For i = 1 To lastRow
    
            dateWithTime = ws.Cells(i, 1).Value
    
            separatedDate = DateSerial(Year(dateWithTime), Month(dateWithTime), Day(dateWithTime))
            separatedTime = TimeValue(Format(dateWithTime, "h:mm AM/PM"))
    
            ws.Cells(i, 3).Value = separatedTime
    
            ws.Cells(i, 2).Value = separatedDate
    
        Next i
        
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT OVERVIEW:

    You have one more doubt when using Text to Column features. Typically, the Text to Column features will display dates in the desired format you mention. You can apply a custom format like “m/d/yyyy” after that if it does not.

    Hopefully, the suggestions and the presented code will help you. Good luck!

    Hello LUIS CARRERA

    Thanks for sharing your problem. The error you are facing is like the following:

    Run-time error ‘1004’
    Application-defined or object-defined error

    On the line below:

    Set RG = RG.Offset(1, 0)

    The error arises from setting the range offset outside the worksheet’s boundaries. The range RG starts at cell H5, and when you try to set the offset to (1, 0), it might go beyond the last row of the worksheet.

    However, I am presenting an Excel VBA code to handle that error.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Sub AdvancedCombinationsFor6Columns()
        
        On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
        
        Dim X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6 As Range
        Dim RG As Range
        Dim xStr As String
        Dim FN1, FN2, FN3, FN4, FN5, FN6 As Integer
        Dim SV1, SV2, SV3, SV4, SV5, SV6 As String

        Set X5 = Range("F5:F19")
        Set X6 = Range("G5:G19")
        
        xStr = " - "
        
        Set RG = Range("H5")

            For FN2 = 1 To X2.Count
                SV2 = X2.Item(FN2).Text
                For FN3 = 1 To X3.Count

                            SV5 = X5.Item(FN5).Text
                            For FN6 = 1 To X6.Count

                                RG.Value = SV1 & xStr & SV2 & xStr & SV3 & xStr & SV4 & xStr & SV5 & xStr & SV6

                            Next
                        Next
                    Next
                Next
            Next

    Hello MATS WIKMAN

    Thanks for your nice word. Your appreciation means a lot to us. I am sharing my findings regarding your issues as follows:

    >> Excel drop-down lists typically display items vertically in a drop-down that displays either below or above the cell, depending on available space.

    >> There is no built-in option in Excel’s Data Validation tool, frequently used to construct drop-down lists, to show the items horizontally within a single cell.

    >> The Swedish edition of Excel 365 differs from the English version. In that case, you can seek help from Microsoft’s support resources for the most accurate guidance based on your specific version and language.

    Hopefully, the suggestion will help you in reaching your goal. If you still have doubts, you can share your issues with precise details within the ExcelDemy Forum. Good luck!

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your query. You wanted a formula to find duplicates when columns can be suffered, like Laura & China and China & Laura.

    I have developed two formulas that will fulfil your requirements using the IF and COUNTIF functions. I will use column C as a Helper column, displaying the result in column D.

    Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Select cell D5 => Insert the given formula => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell D10.

    =IF(B5 < C5, B5 & " " & C5, C5 & " " & B5)

    Step 2: Select cell D5 => Insert the given formula => Drag the Fill Handle icon to cell D10.

    =IF(COUNTIF($D$5:$D$10, D5)>1, “Duplicates”, “No Duplicates”)

    Hopefully, you have got the solution. Good luck.

    Thanks for visiting our blogs and sharing your queries. You want to know how to initialize the weight in the method 3. When investigating your problem, we found that the dataset we previously used does not suit the weighted moving average formula. So, we have modified the article (method 3) for better understanding.

    When implementing a weighted moving average formula, it is better to fix the total weight first and distribute the weights among durations. So, please go to method 3 of this article again. Hopefully, you will not have any doubts. Good luck!

    End Function
    

    Step 2: Return to the sheet => Choose cell E4 => Insert the following formula => And drag the Fill Handle icon to cell E11.

    =CalculateLatitude(C4,GetUTMZoneNumber(D4))

    Step 3: Choose cell F4 => Insert the following formula => And drag the Fill Handle icon to cell F11.

    =CalculateLongitude(B4,GetUTMZoneNumber(D4))

    Things to Keep in Mind:
    As we cannot use all decimal points for some values (UTM Northing), we may not get the same value (Latitude) like previous one.

    Hopefully, the idea will help you. Good luck.

    Hello SUBBARAMAN

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your requirements. Your appreciation means a lot to us. Thanks once again.

    You want to analyze the Indian Stock Markets. To achieve your goal, you only need to use the Indian company names, and the rest of the procedure is described in the article.

    Like the following GIF, I generated the intended data for some noted Indian Companies.

    So, type the Indian company names and follow the steps of this article. Good luck!

    Hello RON SMITH

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your problem. I want to thank MAHFUZA ANIKA ERA for writing such a helpful article. In particular, she developed the calendar within a UserForm.

    However, you are having trouble when clicking the time box. After checking that box, you expect to get the time after the date, but the time is not displaying. I went through this article and discovered why you are having trouble displaying the time and date with a cell.

    SOLUTION: You must check the time box before choosing dates to display the date and time.

    If you want to choose a date and later display time, I am delighted to inform you that I have developed a Change Event Procedure for the check box named Time_Box for that. When the check box is checked, the time will be next to the date; otherwise, the time will not be displayed.

    Steps: Paste the following code with the module of UserForm1 => Save.

    
    Private Sub Time_Box_Change()
    
        Dim cellValue As String
        cellValue = Selection.Value
        If cellValue <> "" Then
            If Time_Box.Value = True Then
                If InStr(1, cellValue, ":") > 0 Then
                    Exit Sub
                Else
                    Selection.Value = Selection.Value & ": " & Time()
                End If
        
            Else
                If InStr(1, cellValue, ":") > 0 Then
                    Selection.Value = Left(cellValue, InStr(1, cellValue, ": ") - 1)
                Else
                    Exit Sub
                End If
            End If
        End If
        
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT:

    Hopefully, the Idea will help you. Good luck.

    Hello ADAM INGLETON

    Thanks for reaching out and posting an exciting query. You are right about the run-time error “13” Type mismatch. This is because the active sheet contains text value within cell B4.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed other improved sub-procedures that have overcome the issue you mentioned by modifying the previous code. To be specific, I have taken a worksheet object to avoid this error.

    Raised Error on Your End:

    Improved Sub-procedures:

    Open the VBA Editor window => Click on Insert followed by Module => Paste the following code in the module => Save.

    
    Option Explicit
    Public countDown As Date
    
    Sub StartTimer()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Stopwatch")
    
        countDown = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        ws.Range("B4") = ws.Range("B4") + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Application.OnTime countDown, "StartTimer"
    
    End Sub
    
    Sub ResetTimer()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Stopwatch")
    
        ws.Range("B4") = TimeValue("00:00:0")
    
    End Sub
    
    Sub StopTimer()
        Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=countDown, Procedure:="StartTimer", Schedule:=False
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT of Applying the Improved Sub-procedures:

    Hopefully, the idea will resolve your problem. Good luck!

    Hello AJK

    Thanks for sharing this exciting issue with us. The mentioned site arranges the required information on many pages. When I went through, there were 69 pages (25 records are displayed on each page). However, the page numbers will change over time. You wanted to use the PowerQuery and fetch all the information into a single sheet.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure to fulfil your requirements. Thanks to MD. ABDUR RAHIM RASEL. I developed such an Excel VBA Sub-procedure by considering the idea he had given in the previous comment.

    Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

    
    Sub FetchDataFromAllPagesOfAWeb()
    
        Dim pageNumber As Integer
        Dim urlBase As String
        Dim queryName As String

        pageNumber = 1
    
        Do While pageNumber <= 69
            
            queryName = "Table_" & pageNumber - 1
    
            queryFormula = "let" & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _

                .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
            End With
    
            ws.UsedRange.Copy Destination:=masterSheet.Cells(masterSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1, 1)
    
            'ThisWorkbook.Queries(queryName).Delete
    
            pageNumber = pageNumber + 1
        Loop
    
        Dim wsToDelete As Worksheet
        For Each wsToDelete In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
            If wsToDelete.Name <> "Master Sheet" Then
                wsToDelete.Delete
            End If
        Next wsToDelete
        
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
        
    End Sub
    
    Sub deleteQueriesAndConnections()
        
        Dim QueriesAndConnections As Object
        
        For Each QueriesAndConnections In ThisWorkbook.Queries
            QueriesAndConnections.Delete
        Next
        
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT:
    Output of running Excel VBA code

    Things to Remember:

    1. Add a new sheet and delete the Master Sheet before running the Excel VBA Code.

    2. At the end of the code execution, the code will delete all sheets except for the Master Sheet.

    Limitations: The code will take 10 to 15 minutes to fetch data from that site. It will depend on the capacity of your computer and internet connection.

    Hello MIGHTY

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You are right about the plan described in Method 2, but partially. Here, we could not maintain the proposal date for Task D. As mentioned in the article, we had to delay. The predecessor of Task D was Task C, which had been completed on the 10th of May. In that sense, we can say the plan made is impossible to follow. But, we must keep in mind that if we cannot start the project at the proposed time, it does not mean we are not completing it at the proposed end date. Maybe the project will end at the proposed date.

    In project management, it’s common to have tasks that depend on completing other tasks. It’s a fundamental aspect of project planning to identify and manage task dependencies and ensure the project is executed in a logical and efficient order. When you have such dependencies, you need to adjust the schedule accordingly to ensure that tasks are performed in the correct sequence.

    Hello DUSTIN

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your query. You want to add a smoothing option while interpolating. You can achieve the goal with Excel formulas. However, I am presenting an Excel VBA User-defined function where you can add a smoothing option.

    Assume you have two user-defined functions for applying the Cubic Spline and Cubic Hermite Spline interpolations. You want to create another user-defined function that will have the same parameters as before, including another extra parameter for choosing the smoothing option. Let’s say if p is provided, it will apply the Cubic Spline interpolation. And if q is provided, it will apply the Hermite Spline interpolation. If the Choose Parameter is not provided, it will raise a warning.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Function InterpolateWithChoice(periodValue As Range, rateValue As Range, xValue As Range, choice As String) As String
        
        If choice = "p" Then
            InterpolateWithChoice = CubicSplineIntrp(periodValue, rateValue, xValue)
        ElseIf choice = "q" Then
            InterpolateWithChoice = HrmtSplines(periodValue, rateValue, xValue)
        Else
            MsgBox "Invalid Choice! Please use 'p' for Cubic Spline or 'q' for Hermite Spline.", vbExclamation, "Invalid Choice"
            InterpolateWithChoice = "#Invalid Choice"
        End If
    
    End Function
    
    Function CubicSplineIntrp(periodValue As Range, rateValue As Range, xValue As Range)
        CubicSplineIntrp = "Cubic Spline"
    End Function
    
    Function HrmtSplines(periodValue As Range, rateValue As Range, xValue As Range)
        HrmtSplines = "Hermite Spline"
    End Function
    

    OUTPUT:

    1. Cubic Spline
    Here, we are providing p as the Choose Parameter.

    2. Hermite Spline
    We are providing q as the Choose Parameter.

    Cubic Hermite Spline interpolations

    3. Error Handling
    Now, we are not providing any of the Choose Parameters. As a result, a Warning Window appears.

    If the Choose Parameter is not provided it will raise a warning

    Press OK => You will get an output like the following image.

    Error Handling

    Hopefully, the idea will help you. Good luck!

    Hello HEATHER

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You are right about the results from using Geography Datatypes and Excel VBA user-defined functions being slightly different. However, a valid API endpoint in VBA code will give you accurate results like the Geography datatypes.

    If you are a Microsoft 365 user, I recommend using the first method, where you can use Geography datatype. I have presented the Excel VBA to other Excel users. However, I must admit that using the Geography is more accurate than the Excel VBA user-defined functions.

    Hello NATS CO

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You have given us wonderful advice, which is very appreciated. You want to modify the existing formula you have given in such a way that it will look up only a cell with value and ignore all blank cells from bottom to top.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed such a formula by modifying your given formula. I have also developed a User-defined function using Excel VBA.

    Modified Excel Formula:

    =LOOKUP(2,1/(FILTER($C$5:$C$14,$C$5:$C$14<>“”)=F5),$D$5:$D$14)

    Excel VBA User-defined Function:
    Open the VBA Editor => Paste the following code in a module => Save.

    
    Function CustomLookupNonBlank(FindValue As Variant, LookupRange As Range, MatchRange As Range) As Variant
        
        Dim i As Long
        
        For i = LookupRange.Cells.Count To 1 Step -1
            If Not IsEmpty(LookupRange.Cells(i).Value) And LookupRange.Cells(i).Value = FindValue Then
                CustomLookupNonBlank = MatchRange.Cells(i).Value
                Exit Function
            End If
        Next i
        
        CustomLookupNonBlank = CVErr(xlErrNA)
    
    End Function
    

    Return to the sheet => Use the user-defined function like other worksheet functions.

    I hope the idea will fulfil your requirements. Good luck!

    Hello AISHWARYA ROY

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your query with such clarity. You want to add new rows with certain information using a cell value. Some rows contain text that can be a mixture of three texts: peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You want to add the new rows accordingly and insert values like 1. Peanut butter, 2. Jelly and 3. Bread.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA procedure that will fulfil your requirements.

    Navigate to Developer >> click on Visual Basic.

    Open the VBA editor

    Due to this, the VBA Editor window will appear.

    1. Hover over Insert and click on Module.

    2. Paste the following code and Run.

    
    Sub InsertRowsAndValues()
    
        Dim ws As Worksheet
        Dim i As Long
        Dim cell As Range
        Dim keywordCount As Integer
        
        Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
        
        For i = 2 To 100
            Set cell = ws.Cells(i, "B")
            keywordCount = 0
            
            If InStr(1, cell.Value, "Peanut Butter", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
                keywordCount = keywordCount + 1
            End If
            
            If InStr(1, cell.Value, "Jelly Sandwich", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
                keywordCount = keywordCount + 1
            End If
            
            If InStr(1, cell.Value, "Bread", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
                keywordCount = keywordCount + 1
            End If
            
            If keywordCount > 0 Then
                ws.Rows(i + 1 & ":" & i + keywordCount).Insert Shift:=xlDown
                
                For j = 1 To keywordCount
                    ws.Cells(i + j, "B").Value = j & ". " & Choose(j, "Peanut Butter", "Jelly Sandwich", "Bread")
                Next j
                
                i = i + keywordCount
            End If
        Next i
    
    End Sub
    

    Insert the intended code and Run

    Finally, you will see an output like the following one.

    Output of running VBA code

    Hello Nadeem Khatri

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your comment. You are right about the Percentage Completion column showing 100%. Thank you once again for noticing the interesting issue. You are also correct about the formula used in the article having no error.

    Reason: The Percentage Completion column shows 100% for each task. It is important to note that we are using TODAY as a reference day. All the tasks are completed 100% for the dataset shown in the article according to today’s dates.

    Note:

    1. If the TODAY function returns a date value between the start and end dates, you will get the intended percentage value.

    2. When TODAY is greater than the end date, we will get 100% or more than 100%, meaning the task is complete.

    3. In contrast, if TODAY is less than both the start and end dates, we will get negative values or negative percentage values (which means the tasks have not started yet).

    Things to Remember:
    When inserting date values within the start date and end date columns, ensure all the dates are in the same format.

    Solution:
    To demonstrate, I am using the dataset mentioned in this article. However, I will use some other date values. Here, you will see an improved version of the formula mentioned in the article to avoid negative values.

    Select cell E5 >> apply the following formula >> drag Fill Handle to cell E8.

    =IF(((MIN(TODAY(),D5)-C5+1)/(D5-C5+1))<0,0, ((MIN(TODAY(),D5)-C5+1)/(D5-C5+1)))

    Select cell E5 and apply the given formula

    I hope the idea and concept are crystal clear to you now. Stay Blessed.

    Hello DENNIS

    Thanks for reaching out and noticing the problem. You are right about the Date values not being formatted as expected for 1st to 12th.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have come up with a solution. You must choose a date format consistently while inserting date values in cells.

    In this case, use the exact Date Picker mentioned in the article, which typically chooses the data format as mm-dd-yyyy. Next, you have to create an extra command button that will be responsible for inserting the chosen date value in cell B10. And the Excel VBA Event procedure will convert the date format into dd-mm-yyyy.

    VBA Code for CommandButton1: Double-click on the inserted CommandButton1 >> insert the following code and Save. You can also change the destination cell by modifying the code.

    
    Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    
        Cells(10, 2) = UserForm1.CsnDate.Caption
    
    End Sub
    

    Excel VBA Event Procedure: Insert the following code in the intended sheet module described in my previous reply.

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        
        Dim Cell As Range
        
        If Not Intersect(Target, Me.UsedRange) Is Nothing Then
            
            For Each Cell In Target
                If IsDate(Cell.Value) Then
                    Cell.NumberFormat = "dd-mm-yyyy"
                End If
            Next Cell
            
        End If
    
    End Sub
    

    OUTPUT:

    Click on the CommandButton1 and see the result in cell B10

    Hopefully, the idea will resolve your issue. Stay Blessed.

    Hello DENNIS

    Thank you for staying with ExcelDemy and posting your queries. You previously asked to change the date format to dd-mm-yyyy. MUSIHA MAHFUZA MUKTA provided a solution regarding your date format problem. The solution is working perfectly at my end as well.

    After reviewing your requirements, I assume you want to use the date picker to insert date values in a sheet.

    I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA Event procedure. All you need to do is keep the event procedure in the sheet module. The process will format any date values into the dd-mm-yyyy format whether you insert date values manually or date picker.

    Right-click on the sheet name tab >> click on View Code.

    Right-click on sheet name tab and go to view code

    Due to this, the VBA Editor window will appear.
    Paste the following code in the sheet module >> click the Save icon.

    
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        
        Dim Cell As Range
        
        If Not Intersect(Target, Me.UsedRange) Is Nothing Then
            
            For Each Cell In Target
                If IsDate(Cell.Value) Then
                    Cell.NumberFormat = "dd-mm-yyyy"
                End If
            Next Cell
            
        End If
    
    End Sub
    

    Paste code in sheet module and Save

    Choose any cell >> Input date values with any valid date format.

    insert a date value with valid date format

    After pressing Enter, we see the date value converted into the dd-mm-yyyy format.

    Final output of formatting date values to dd-mm-yyyy

    Hopefully, The idea will fulfil your requirements. Good luck!

    Hello JAMIE

    Your appreciation means a lot to us. Thanks for your nice words!

    You often click the stop button after you have already stopped the timer. That results in an Error. Thank you once again for noticing the issue. Your claim is correct.

    However, I am delighted to inform you that the issue can be avoided with the help of an Error Handler called On Error Resume Next.

    All you need to do is to modify the StopTime sub-procedure to fulfil your requirement.

    Modified Excel VBA Code:

    
    Option Explicit
    Public countDown As Date
    Sub StartTimer()
        countDown = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Range("B4") = Range("B4") + TimeValue("00:00:01")
        Application.OnTime countDown, "StartTimer"
    End Sub
    Sub ResetTimer()
        Range("B4") = TimeValue("00:00:0")
    End Sub
    Sub StopTimer()
        On Error Resume Next
        Application.OnTime EarliestTime:=countDown, Procedure:="StartTimer", Schedule:=False
    End Sub
    

    Good luck!

    Dear Faisal

    Thanks a ton. Your appreciations mean a lot to us. I am glad you have found the article very helpful.

    You mentioned the user-defined functions only work for UTM Zone and UTM Easting on your end. The user-defined function for calculating UTM Northing is not working.

    However, the issue you are addressing is unclear to us. On our end, it is working perfectly. I am using Microsoft 365. However, It should not make any difference. The code should work for all versions of Excel.

    Please share your workbook containing a dataset with us. You can also post your query and attach the dataset in ExcelDemy Forum. We need more information about your problem, such as if it returns any error or wrong values.

    The functions often may return values using scientific notation like 2.34344E+13. To avoid this type of notation, you may use an Event procedure.

    Excel VBA Event Procedure:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
        Dim cell As Range
        Dim funcName As String
    
        funcName = "CalculateUTM"
    
        For Each cell In Target
            If InStr(1, cell.Formula, funcName) > 0 Then
                cell.NumberFormat = "0.00"
            End If
        Next cell
    
    End Sub

    Hello Dr Timber

    I went through this article and did not find any technical issues. In my view, you should reconsider what you have said.

    This article is about finding an X intercept. To demonstrate this point, this context considers a practical dataset where the percentage of people still using masks is calculated when the number of Covid Cases becomes Zero. I think you expected the calculation to find X Intercept for Y = 0. That’s what is calculated in those methods. When the writer introduced us to the dataset, it was explicitly mentioned.

    Anyway, I am introducing another method that may overcome your confusion. I have calculated the percentage of people who still use masks when the number of Covid Cases becomes Zero. I am using FORECAST.LINEAR Function to predict the percentage. And I get the same result shown in this article.
    Excel Formula:

    =FORECAST.LINEAR(D18,C5:C16,D5:D16)

    Finding X Intercept with Article Dataset

    The data considered in this article is not Linear. That’s why you get confused. However, these methods must be able to find an X intercept for any Linear data.

    X Intercept with Linear Data

    Stay safe. And good luck!

    Hello ANAND,

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your interesting issue. The requirement you mentioned can be done with the help of an Excel VBA code. The code contains two sub-procedures named ImportVCFRecordWise and ExtractData. All you have to do is to run the ImportVCFRecordWise procedure to achieve your goal.

    Excel VBA Code:

    Hello DeAnna

    Thanks for reaching out. To overcome the situation, I will introduce another method. Here you must convert the locations into Geography data types. Later, you will find the Lat Long values for each location. Lastly, you have to call the below User-defined function in a cell.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Public Function GetTotalDistance2Locations(startlocation As String, endlocation As String, keyvalue As String) As Double
    
        Dim Initial_Value As String, temp_Value As String, Destination_Value As String, mitHTTP As Object, mitUrl As String
        Dim distance As Double
        
        Initial_Value = "https://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Routes/DistanceMatrix?origins="
        temp_Value = "&destinations="
        Destination_Value = "&travelMode=driving&o=xml&key=" & keyvalue & "&distanceUnit=mi"
        
        Set mitHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
        
        mitUrl = Initial_Value & startlocation & temp_Value & endlocation & Destination_Value
        mitHTTP.Open "GET", mitUrl, False
        mitHTTP.SetRequestHeader "User-Agent", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"
        mitHTTP.Send ("")
    
        distance = Round(Round(WorksheetFunction.FilterXML(mitHTTP.ResponseText, "//TravelDistance"), 3), 0)
        
        GetTotalDistance2Locations = distance
    
    End Function
    

    API:

    AoCgFc5qOKVpyHuiGyPBgzDk8RgQnGGMvNqwcmtxfj7VnHEm-bpqH2GkRpoSJSAD

    STEPS:
    Select range B3:B4 >> go to Data tab >> click on Geography.

    Geography Data Types

    Choose cell C3 >> apply the below formula >> drag the Fill Handle to C4.

    =B3.Latitude &”, “&B3.Longitude

    Lat Long Values

    Press Alt+F11 >> go to Insert >> click on Module >> insert the mentioned code.

    VBE Module

    Choose cell C9 >> apply the below formula.

    =GetTotalDistance2Locations(C3,C4,A7)

    Hello PCLOUD

    Greetings from our website! Thank you for sharing your question on the platform. There is a way to resolve your submitted query of finding the maximum value of the Close price in a defined period instead of the whole table. I can assist you with an Excel PowerQuery code to reach your goal.

    PowerQuery Code:

    let
        Source = Csv.Document(Web.Contents("https://query1.finance.yahoo.com/v7/finance/download/MSFT?period1=1589932800&period2=1590710400&interval=1d&events=history&includeAdjustedClose=true"),[Delimiter=",", Columns=7, Encoding=65001, QuoteStyle=QuoteStyle.None]),
        #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(Source, [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
        #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Promoted Headers",{{"Date", type date}, {"Open", type number}, {"High", type number}, {"Low", type number}, {"Close", type number}, {"Adj Close", type number}, {"Volume", Int64.Type}}),
        MaxClosePrice = List.Max(#"Changed Type"[Close])
    in
        MaxClosePrice
    

    The line MaxClosePrice = List.Max(#”Changed Type”[Close]) calculates the maximum value of the Close column in the transformed table. The result is assigned to the variable MaxClosePrice.

    I hope this will achieve your goal. I am also giving you the Workbook used to investigate your issue to help you understand better. Feel free to contact us again with any other inquiries or concerns.

    Hello SAMIR

    Thanks for reaching out and posting your query. Regarding your question, I can assist you with a User-defined function programmed in Excel VBA that will take three arguments. Among these arguments, the first and second will be the Latitude and Longitude of the start and end location. And the third argument must be an API Key. I am giving you an API for demonstration which should work. However, you may use your API as well as the third argument. I am attaching the Workbook used to investigate the described issue.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Public Function GetTotalDistance2Locations(startlocation As String, endlocation As String, keyvalue As String) As Double
    
        Dim Initial_Value As String, temp_Value As String, Destination_Value As String, mitHTTP As Object, mitUrl As String
        Dim distance As Double
        
        Initial_Value = "https://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Routes/DistanceMatrix?origins="
        temp_Value = "&destinations="
        Destination_Value = "&travelMode=driving&o=xml&key=" & keyvalue & "&distanceUnit=mi"
        
        Set mitHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
        
        mitUrl = Initial_Value & startlocation & temp_Value & endlocation & Destination_Value
        mitHTTP.Open "GET", mitUrl, False
        mitHTTP.SetRequestHeader "User-Agent", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"
        mitHTTP.Send ("")
    
        distance = Round(Round(WorksheetFunction.FilterXML(mitHTTP.ResponseText, "//TravelDistance"), 3), 0)
        
        GetTotalDistance2Locations = distance
    
    End Function

    Hello DREW7STER,

    Greetings from our website! Thank you for posting your question on the platform. There is a way to solve your submitted problem of finding the unique values and their frequency. I am providing an Excel VBA code compatible with several unique values, as many as you want to be more specific.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Sub FindUniqueValues()
        
        Dim uniqueValues As Variant
        Dim i As Long
        Dim j As Long

        Range("E4:F" & Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).ClearContents
        
        For i = LBound(uniqueValues) To UBound(uniqueValues)
            freq = 0
            For j = 4 To Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
                If Range("B" & j).Value = uniqueValues(i) Then
                    freq = freq + 1
                End If
            Next j
            Range("E" & (i + 4)).Value = uniqueValues(i)
            Range("F" & (i + 4)).Value = freq
        Next i
        
    End Sub
    
    Function getUniqueValues(rng As Range) As Variant

        uniqueValues(1) = rng.Cells(1, 1).Value
        
        For i = 2 To rng.Cells.Count
            cellValue = rng.Cells(i, 1).Value
            If Not IsEmpty(cellValue) Then
                isUnique = True
                For j = 1 To UBound(uniqueValues)
                    If uniqueValues(j) = cellValue Then
                        isUnique = False
                        Exit For
                    End If
                Next j
                
                If isUnique Then
                    ReDim Preserve uniqueValues(1 To UBound(uniqueValues) + 1)
                    uniqueValues(UBound(uniqueValues)) = cellValue
                End If
            End If
        Next i
        
        getUniqueValues = uniqueValues

    Hello CAR,

    It is great to see you again. I hope this reply finds you well. As you requested, I have reviewed your code and found some Syntax errors. But overall, the algorithm was close to achieving your goal.

    However, I am introducing a more efficient way of doing the same task with a better algorithm that should be compatible with large datasets.

    EXCEL VBA CODE:

    
    
    Sub MoveRowsInSheetsBasedOnValuesNew()
        
        Dim wsSource As Worksheet, wsDest As Worksheet
        Dim i As Long, lastRow As Long, destRow As Long
        
        Set wsSource = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Acquisition")
        lastRow = wsSource.Cells(wsSource.Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Row
        
        
        For i = 3 To lastRow
        
            If wsSource.Cells(i, "I").Value = "9.Projectnumber assigned" Then
                
                Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Projects")
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Row + 1
                
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
            
            ElseIf wsSource.Cells(i, "I").Value = "10.Finished" Then
                
                Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Finished Projects")
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Row + 1
                
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
            
            ElseIf wsSource.Cells(i, "I").Value = "1.Cancelled" Then
                
                Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Cancelled Rejected Proposals")
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Row + 1
                
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
            
            ElseIf wsSource.Cells(i, "I").Value = "2.Rejected" Then
                
                Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Cancelled Rejected Proposals")
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Row + 1
                
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
            
            End If
        
        Next i

    Hello DOUGLAS FORMAN,

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your exciting query. When a given condition is met, we can use data bars and conditional formatting to change the color of a cell at a time. I can help you with Excel VBA code that loops through the K column and applies your given formula. Latterly, it utilizes an If Conditional to format each cell. When iterating, if the cell contains 1, that means 100%Yes” It formats the fill color of the cell as Green. On the other hand, it uses a Data Bars feature. To get a better understanding of the issue, I am going to share the Workbook used in exploring your problem.

    Excel VBA Code:

    
    Sub DatabarAndConditionalFormatting()
    
        Dim lastRow As Long
        lastRow = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
        
        Dim rng As Range
        Set rng = Range("K2:K" & lastRow)
        
        For Each cell In rng
            cell.Formula = "=IFERROR(COUNTIF(B" & cell.Row & ":J" & cell.Row & ",""Yes"")/COUNTA($B$1:$J$1),0)"
            cell.NumberFormat = "0.00%"
            If cell.Value = 1 Then
                cell.Interior.Color = RGB(0, 255, 0)
            Else
                cell.FormatConditions.AddDatabar
                cell.FormatConditions(cell.FormatConditions.Count).ShowValue = True
                
                 With cell.FormatConditions(1).BarColor
                    .Color = 13012579
                    .TintAndShade = 0
                End With
            End If

    Dear ABDUL KADAR

    Greetings from our website! Thank you for posting your question on the platform. As requested, I can assist you with an Excel formula using the IF and COUNTIFS functions that determine how many products a Region makes even if regardless of the product name (sometimes the product column is blank against a Region).

    Hello CAR

    Thank you for reaching out to us on our website. You can use a single module to move rows between sheets based on various values. You may do this by using an IF statement inside a FOR loop that iterates through the rows in Sheet1, verifies the value, and then moves the entire row to the proper destination sheet based on the value. The intended code is given below.

    
    Sub MoveRowsInSheetsBasedOnValues()
    
        Dim wsSource As Worksheet, wsDest As Worksheet
        Dim i As Long, lastRow As Long, destRow As Long
        
        Set wsSource = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1")
        lastRow = wsSource.Cells(wsSource.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
        
        Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet2")
        destRow = 1
        
        For i = 1 To lastRow
            If wsSource.Cells(i, "B").Value = "A" Then
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row + 1
            End If
        Next i
        
        Set wsDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet3")
        destRow = 1
        
        For i = 1 To lastRow
            If wsSource.Cells(i, "B").Value = "B" Then
                wsSource.Rows(i).Copy wsDest.Rows(destRow)
                destRow = wsDest.Cells(wsDest.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row + 1

    Hello PRACHI DABHADE

    Greetings from our website! Thank you for posting your question on the platform. I can assist you with an Excel VBA code that creates new workbooks and allows you to specify names for those files. Furthermore, you can choose a location to store those files. Note that the user can cancel the folder selection dialogue. If they do, the code will end without making any new workbooks.

    Download Workbook:

    I am attaching the Workbook used to explore your issue. You can have it by clicking the link below.
    https://www.exceldemy.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/PRACHI-DABHADE.xlsm

    INPUT:

    In the sheet named Sheet1, there is a list of names.

    A list of names to create new workbooks

    OUTPUT:

    the desired workbooks are created utilizing the Excel VBA code mentioned below.

    Output of creating workbook from a list of cells

    VBA CODE:

    Sub CreateWorkbookFromListOfCells()
    
        Dim wb As Workbook
        Dim wbNames As Variant
        Dim i As Integer
        Dim folderPath As String
        
        With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
            .Title = "Select folder to save workbooks"
            If .Show = True Then
                folderPath = .SelectedItems(1)
            Else
                Exit Sub
            End If
        End With
        
        wbNames = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1).Range("B4:B8").Value
        
        For i = 1 To UBound(wbNames, 1)
            Set wb = Workbooks.Add
            wb.SaveAs Filename:=folderPath & "\" & wbNames(i, 1)
            wb.Close
        Next i
        
    End Sub

    NOTE:

    1) I am using the Application.FileDialog method, this code asks the user to choose a folder where the new workbooks will be saved. Then, it puts the path to the selected folder in the folderPath variable.

    2) Using the folderPath variable and the Workbook’s name from the wbNames array, the code saves each new Workbook with its name in the chosen folder.

    3) Lastly, remember to modify the VBA code when you want to work with the other ranges. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you face any other issues.

    Hello Patrick,

    Thank you for reaching out with your issue. You encountered a Run-time error. The “Run-time error ‘9’: Subscript out of range” error occurs because you did not modify the VBA code and forgot to insert the intended sheet name. You are misled somehow by the first step of the third method. The post says to go to the Insert tab and choose Headers and Footer from the Text group, and then execute the code mentioned in the third method; that’s all.

    I can provide three Excel VBA codes to avoid the error you experienced unintentionally. All you need to do is choose the intended sheet as the active sheet and run a sub-procedure from the below list.

    First Method: Insert Page Number in Footer Using Excel VBA

    Sub AddPageNumberInFooter()
    
        ActiveWindow.View = xlPageLayoutView
        ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter = "Page &P"
    
    End Sub

    Second Method: VBA to Insert Total Page Number in Footer

    Sub AddPageNumberWithTotalInFooter()
    
        ActiveWindow.View = xlPageLayoutView
        ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter = "&P / &N"
    
    End Sub

    Third Method: Insert Page Number in Selected Cell

    Sub PageNumberSelectedCell()
        
        Dim mVCount As Integer
        Dim mHCount As Integer
        Dim mVBreak As VPageBreak
        Dim mHBreak As HPageBreak
        Dim mNumPage As Integer
        
        mHCount = 1
        mVCount = 1
        
        ActiveWindow.View = xlPageLayoutView
        
        If ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Order = xlDownThenOver Then
            mHCount = ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks.Count + 1
        Else
            mVCount = ActiveSheet.VPageBreaks.Count + 1
        End If
        
        mNumPage = 1
        
        For Each mVBreak In ActiveSheet.VPageBreaks
            If mVBreak.Location.Column > ActiveCell.Column Then Exit For
            mNumPage = mNumPage + mHCount
        Next
        
        For Each mHBreak In ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks
            If mHBreak.Location.Row > ActiveCell.Row Then Exit For
            mNumPage = mNumPage + mVCount
        Next
        
        ActiveCell = "Page " & mNumPage & " of " & Application.ExecuteExcel4Macro("GET.DOCUMENT(50)")
    
    End Sub

        Range("F2").Formula = "=SUMIFS($B:$B,$C:$C,$E2)"
        Range("F2").AutoFill Destination:=Range("F2:F" & lastRow)
    
        GetUniqueValues = uniqueValues
    End Function 

    The above VBA code splits a list of items into groups based on their assigned value and calculates the total weighted value for each unique group. It loops through each row of the worksheet, sets each item to a group based on the total weighted value of the group, and creates a new group if the current group's total weighted value plus the contemporary item's assigned value is greater than 1. The GetUniqueValues function calculates the unique groups and their total weighted values by using the Unique and SUMIFS functions to generate an array of unique values in column C and calculate the total weighted value for each group.

    Hello KEVIN

    Greetings from our website! Thank you for posting your question on the platform. I have yet to experience the issue you described personally. However, I can offer some insights to help you troubleshoot the problem.

    The circular reference error may occur because the formula references the cell containing the procedure, creating an infinite loop. To avoid this, you can modify the system to refer to a different cell that doesn’t have the formula.

    Excel’s built-in Error Checking feature can help identify and resolve circular references. To access this feature, go to the Formulas tab in the Excel ribbon, click Error Checking, and then click Circular References. Excel will then highlight any circular references in your workbook and suggest resolving them.

    Providing any prominent solution without glancing at the workbook is challenging. You can share your workbook with us via Exceldemy Forum to better understand your situation.

    Hello DAVID,
    Thank you for reaching out with your comment. You encountered a different problem than what was described in the article. There could be several reasons why the problem is happening. Some of your add-ins may mess up the delete sheet feature, which may not work in your version of Microsoft Excel. To fix this, you should update your program.
    You can use an Excel VBA code to delete a sheet by inputting the sheet name.
    Excel VBA Code:

    Sub DeleteSheet()
        Dim sheetName As String
        sheetName = InputBox("Enter the name of the sheet you want to delete:")
        If sheetName <> "" Then
            If WorksheetExists(sheetName) Then
                Application.DisplayAlerts = False
                Sheets(sheetName).Delete
                Application.DisplayAlerts = True
            Else
                MsgBox "The workbook has no sheet with the provided name."
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
    Function WorksheetExists(shtName As String, Optional wb As Workbook) As Boolean
        Dim sht As Object
        If wb Is Nothing Then Set wb = ThisWorkbook
        On Error Resume Next
        Set sht = wb.Sheets(shtName)
        WorksheetExists = Not sht Is Nothing
        On Error GoTo 0
    End Function
    

    The VBA code and suggestions will solve your issue. Good luck.

    Hello AYESHA
    Thanks for your query. I have analyzed the workbook Rafiul Haq shared. A prominent approach to avoid data overlapping is to create the employee record separately for each month. So don’t hesitate to make the Employee Leave description for each month.

    Sub SpecificAmountOfPageBreaksWithStartingLine()
    Dim Lastrow As Long
    Dim Mysheet As Worksheet
    Set Mysheet = Application.ActiveSheet
    Row = Application.InputBox("Enter Amount of Row Number", TitleId, "", Type:=1)
    NumBreaks = Application.InputBox("Enter The Number of Page Breaks", TitleId, "", Type:=1)
    StartPoint = Application.InputBox("Enter The Starting Line Number", TitleId, "", Type:=1)
    Mysheet.ResetAllPageBreaks
    Lastrow = Mysheet.Range("B1").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    For i = StartPoint To Lastrow Step Row
    If i <= StartPoint + (Row * (NumBreaks - 1)) Then
    Mysheet.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=Mysheet.Cells(i, 1)
    End If
    Next
    End Sub
