Macro help in Excel

I'm trying to manage a database I work with easier. I was hoping to use a macro to make things easier but i've not used them before. What i want to do i select all the data in one sheet (minus the headers) and then insert the values (not formula) into another sheet already containing some data. This will create some duplicates and some new and leave some old without duplicates. What i want to do is update all the new duplicated with the 'note' (for a certain colum) of the old one. and then delete the old duplicate leaving the new one with the notes. Also want it to input NEW in the notes colum for rows that arn't duplicates. Hope that all makes sense. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: Macro

Hi alwinkumar

You can set a default value in most form items under the properties of that item. Look for "value". You can also do this in code, by setting up a sub routine to set/reset the values on your form. Then just run the sub routine before you open or enter the form.

Private Sub resetForm()

'formname.itemname = value
UserForm1.Label1 = "Hello World"

End Sub

For the second one you have a couple of options, you can find the bottom on the data and store the row index in a variable, use a loop to find the next empty cell in a row, and store the value or you can use the current region method to select all the cells with data continously touching the selected range. Example below

numberOfRows = Sheet1.Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count

Whenever I open a new spreadsheet now it automatically opens up a spreadsheet calles PERSONAL. Why is that and how can I get rid of it... I think it started after a did a macro but I am not sure. Thanks,...


You're right - it was caused by recording a macro. When you record a macro you are given the option to store the new macro in "This Workbook", a "New Workbook" (the default), or in a "Personal Macro Workbook". It looks like you selected "Personal Macro Workbook".
The recorded macro is stored in a special workbook called "Personal.xls". This workbook is loaded every time Excel is loaded. If you don't want this workbook loaded, then just delete it or rename it.
The file is buried deep in Microsoft's application data area. On my Vista computer it's in C:\Users\frogfund\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART On my Windows XP computer it's in C:\Documents and Settings\frogfund\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART. Depending on your computer your Personal.xls might be in a slightly different location. You might need to do a search using Windows Explorer.
If you are still having troubles finding personal.xls 1. Open Excel, 2. Open the Visual Basic editor (hit Alt-F11 or click Tools-Macro-Visual Basic Editor) 3. Click Tools-References to bring up the references dialog 4. Click on VBAProject in the list. The file location will be displayed near the bottom of the dialog box. Sometimes this might be cut off at the end, but it should give you a good idea where the file is located. 5. Click Cancel to close the dialog.

Macros


After you record your macro do the following.
Open the excel file contains the macro. Go to tools and go to macro and click on macros. Select the macro you wish to add the close operation. Click on Step into... This will open up the visual basic editor. In the code window, at the bottom row you will see End Sub. Right before that row, type workbooks.close
Save the macro by clicking the save button. And you can run your macro to see if it works. I tried, it does :) Good Luck :)

Macro on excel


Macros are a timesaving feature that allow you to record a sequence of actions that you do in excel, and replay them back later.

You give each macro a name, and you can invoke them later, and Excel will "do" whatever it is you did when you recorded the macro.

To record a new macro:
1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Record New Macro...
3) Type in a name for your macro and hit OK

(A new toolbar will popup with a "stop" button on it. Excel is now recording everything you do)

4) Do something, like, for example, select some cells and make them bold.
5) Click the "stop" button.


Now your macro has been recorded! You can play it back later by:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Macros...
3) Select your macro from the list
4) Click "Run"

The actions you performed earlier will now be executed.



-------


Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications, or "VBA". It is a programming language which uses the Excel Object Model to perform various actions. You can edit and create custom macros by writing the code manually in VBA. To do this:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to tools->macros->macros...
3) Select an already existing macro
4) Click "Edit"

(The visual basic editor will open, showing you the code for your macro)

At this point you are writing a program in Visual Basic. To learn how to edit macros, you need to learn visual basic, as well as the specific quirks related to excel macros in visual basic.

Recording a macro, and then using it as a template while you edit it is a common trick for making macros manually more quickly.

If you are not familiar with VB, I would not suggest attempting to edit your macros in any but the most simplest of ways. If you're brave, you can try to learn about editing macros in VBA here:
