Excel - button to take an action - how to?

Q: Excel - button to take an action - how to?

I am trying to set up a button in Excel. I need the button to activate a formula in a seperate cell and put the result in a different. Now I'm using a 1 or 0 to activate the formula. I've searched Excel help and can figure out how to do this. Help.

Preferred Solution: Excel - button to take an action - how to?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Excel - button to take an action - how to?

I'm not quite sure I follow you.

Are you looking to copy the result of a formula from one cell to another? If so, we're going to need more details from you of exactly what you're expecting it to do. ie. Will it always copy from A1 to F2, for example, or will it always copy from the selected cell to a cell 3 columns over?

Let us know.

Hi Everyone, A couple days ago I noticed that my middle mouse button which I use for scrolling started to activate the Context Menu (aka anytime you right-click, a menu pops up). Then I noticed that my right-button will also activate scrolling as well. Is this a hardware issue? I've already tried reinstalling the drivers and played around with the settings to no avail!  Anyone experience a similar issue? Cheers,

When I go to Instant Rewards website, log in, and click onto the offers tab, I can then scroll down to the offer I want (ex. freecreditreport.com) and click on it. And from that next page, I am then supposed to be able to click on a green action button that redirects me to the website of the specific offer I chose. However there is no button anywhere that page. In fact there is no button or anything that allows me to make any further action from that page. Once I'm at that page, I'm stuck and can't do anything else but back out and start over, just to run into the same scenario over again! I've done some troubleshooting and I was told it might be a browser issue so I downloaded the latest Adobe Flash Player, changed some security settings and refreshed my Instant Rewards account. But none of these worked. Please help!!! I work from home so I'm losing money everyday until this gets fixed.

Hello. I have a laptop and a desktop computers, both running Windows 7 Pro x64. On laptop, I can set the sleep button to Shut Down (I guess, I don't have the laptop here now so I cannot confirm). I would like to set the DESKTOP computer's sleep button action
to Shut Down, but this option is not available (I have disabled hibernation, so sleep is the only option in advanced power settings -> sleep button action for me). I don't have a Power button on my keyboard nor on the remote control,
only Sleep buttons and I do not want to use S1 nor S3. I want the computer to shut down when I press these buttons. Is there a way? Registry etc?
Thank you in advance for your kind replies.
Tomas.

A:Sleep button action -> Shut Down, HOW?

Hi Tomas
If you are referring to the Start/Power Button.

Let's say I used the following command to uninstall OneNote from Windows 10 Pro machine


Code:
Get-AppxPackage *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage
It did what it was supposed to do and successfully uninstalled OneNote. However, I notice that the "Note" button still persists in the Action Center notifier popup. Once OneNote is uninstalled, clicking on "Note" makes Windows to offer installing an application from Store.

Is there any civil way to remove that "Note" button from Action Center? I know that I can hide it by collapsing the button stack, but what about the complete removal?

Hello Group,

Powerpoint 2007 PC Vista

Single slide with video selection menu

Playing video, full screen, kiosk mode.

Inserted a return arrow in lower right corner with action to restart video selection menu slide, so that user can interupt video and make another selection if desired.

The problem: the arrow is not visible. How to make the arrow visible during a full screen video play?

Some sort of layering technique, with the arrow on top? Or somehow change full screen pixel dimensions to slightly smaller than physical full screen size so that the return arrow can be seen ?

Hope someone can help ... thanks for looking in.

Charles
 

A:Powerpoint 2007: Action button not visible during video

I don't think there's an option to bring anything in front of the movie while it's playing in fullscreen mode
But you can place your movies each on a separate slide, have them run (automatically non-full screen mode), resize each one so that it covers most of the slide leaving a small empty part of the slide for a button that will hyperlink to the first slide

In the first slide, put thumbnails for the movies, each one of hyperlinking to the slide where that movie is, so it will give you the effect you're looking for

Hope this helps

Is there any way to use this button for something else than MaxxAudio EQ? It's one of the 3 additional QuickSet (?) buttons.
Not only there are better apps, but only one of the setups gives natural sound (Music) and changing doesn't help.
But that's not an issue here. I would love to use it to start any other app/script, but there is not mapping apps that support them and even if they could (like SharpKeys) the button is probably seen as unknown...

Anyone managed to do it? Or is it impossible?
And no, I don't mean Shortcut key as I know that it can be easily mapped to any action.

and the browser back button is clicked the check fails in IE11. It is because until the onunload the window.name is retained. But after the return from server code, in onload the window.name is blanked out. The server resets the window.name after a download
when back button is clicked.
This does not happen in chrome or firefox. and maybe even the older versions of IE. Can you please check if this is the expected behavior.

Did you notice the copied data is still in the office clipboard - if you open it up - and can be selectively pasted into the sheet/cell from there however.

I wonder if it's the system clipboard interfering with the office clipboard in some way - assuming the system clipboard retention behaves differently.

The MS Excel button has disappeared from my toolbar and I can't get it back. When I go to View / Toolbar / Customize the regular Customize window pops up, but the toolbars also change with the AutoSum button showing. There is nothing on the Customize window allowing me to select AutoSum, but when I close the window, the toolbars revert back to what they were before. I still don't have the summation key.

My standard display settings are 800 x 600. When I change to 1024 x 768 then the button shows up as the 10th button from the left so there is plenty of room for it to show even in 800 x 600. But the 1024 x0768 setting makes me squint to much.

I have tried deleting MS Office and reinstalling it, but that didn't help.

Hi everyone,
I have a problem with some users. They have a template that they use to create and estimate. This spreadsheet has a few button with a macro behind it.

Once in a while while they are working on them and the buttons are gone... macros still there just the buttons. I can go to the template and copy each button one at the time and paste them to the sheet, and they will work fine. but I just wonder if anyone have an idea of what is going on it's a pain to copy all the buttons.

3 user open these documents one at the time they open one and save it to the server then another user may open it save it on their c: drive.... work on it and save it back to the server, and when the first user open it up the button may be gone.

they are using Office 2000, 2002 and 2003.
I thought it may be a compatibility issue so I updated the office 2000 to 2003 so now they have 2003, 2002 and 2003.
but they still have the same problem even when the user that have 2002 hasn't touch the spreadsheet.

What you could do is, once the buton is created you name it, the same way you name a range.

Go to the top left corner, it will sya something like Button 5 or 6 or whatever.

Give it a name:

A:Missing Program Button in Excel

As you haven't received any help yet, can I just check if you have done the following, so as to eliminate it from the equation.

If you click on the View menu and move you mouse pointer over Toolbars, you should get a list of toolbars available. Can you see any toolbar that relates to the button you are looking for ?

Also at the end of the format toolbari the spreadsheet, is there an arrow icon, that allows you to see more icons for the format toolbar?

If non of those help, then have you been into View, Toolbars,Customise and looked to see if you can find the button under the commands tab.

Failing that,it is possible to setup your own button under Customise, but I haven't done that for quite some time, and at present haven't got the time to help in depth.

So if you can come back and give an answer on the first three items mentioned, then I am sure somebody will be able to help you further.

I have an excel spread sheet where I have certain cell that I clear each time I use this as a template. Can someone tell me how to use a command button to do this. The cells are E3:E10, E5:E20, G3:G20 & F24. I just want to clear the the number in the cell... not the formatting.

thanx
 

A:Solved: excel command button

this should do it...
Code:

Sub Macro1()
Range("E3:E10").ClearContents
Range("E5:E20").ClearContents
Range("G3:G20").ClearContents
Range("F24").ClearContents
End Sub


but I'm confused as E3:E10 and E5:E20 overlap, in which case you can replace the first two lines with range("E3:E20").clearcontents

I need some assistance creating a macro to automate a process by clicking on a button. I would like to have multiple functions performed when a single button is clicked. They are:

1. Save the active file
2. Open a new mail message (and attach the active file if possible)
3. Fill in the To: with "[email protected]"
4. Fill in the CC: with "[email protected]"
5. Fill in the subject with "Performance Tracker"

Is this possible? I have no idea where to start other than I know it will require VBA. Can someone help?

I have a simple s/sheet containing basic formulae for introducing the concept of modellng to young pupils.
How do I create a "Reset" button so that after entering/changing variables the s/sheet can be quickly put back to the starting position? (ie not using the undo icon continually!)

Hi Guys,
I have a problem with Excel 2003 on some computers. The problem is I have a command button on the workbook which sends the active workbook as an attachment to the email address that I placed in the code. It works 100% on most computers that use Excel 2003 or excel 2007. This makes me think that the code etc ie OK. However there are a few computers that will not allow the button to work and send the email. I have checked all the macro and VBA settings including the Preferences in VBA. They are all the same as on the computers that it works.
Has anyone experienced this and any thoughts what to look for to solve the problem.
Thanks in anticipation
Charlie Fox

Hi,

I'm trying to add a search macro to the search button in the 'search' sheet in the attached. I'd like it to search all the other sheets (minus the 'index' sheet) and then display the results within that sheet.

Thought the easiest way to show this would be through putting in entries in all of the sheets and showing how I would like them displayed (example results in the red text). The corresponding search to these results would be 'bread'.

Would be grateful for any suggestions on how this could be done.

Mnay thanks in advance.

Excel 2007 - Previous threads suggested creating a Macro to clear the data in the worksheet, which defines specific cells to be deleted.

If you need to reset the entire sheet or even one cell, then follow these simple steps using VB code.

Step 1: Select the entire worksheet, right click on any cell and select "Format Cells", select the "Protection" tab and click the check box "Locked". This will lock all cells. Click OK.

Step 2: Right click all cells that you want the data cleared and follow the same procedures in Step 1.

Step 3: Go to top Tool bar and select the "Developer" tab and click. In the "Controls" box select "Insert", in the ActiveX Control and select "Button" and place on your worksheet.

Step 4: In Top Tool bar click Design Mode, click on your new "Button" to select.

Step 5: In top Tool bar click "View Code" or right click your Button, in this VB window paste this "Code" I have in blue text:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

ActiveSheet.Protect
On Error Resume Next
ActiveSheet.UsedRange = ""
On Error GoTo 0
ActiveSheet.Unprotect

End Sub

Step 6: Click on Design Mode, type text in one of the cells you have "Unlocked" and click your new Reset Button.

You can reuse this Rest Button on any worksheet by copying and pasting it. Just remember to define which cells are to be "unlocked".
