Start Validating user input in excel vba

Validating user input in excel vba

The goal is to take these values and input them into rows of a separate worksheet ("Data") such that I can keep things organized and build graphs from. How would I alter your last bit of code here that allows keyboard entries 0 - 9 with a single decimal place, to give me what I need?

I had a short tip published by Pinnacle Publishing in their Visual Basic Developer magazine that covered some of these flaws.

Is Numeric has some "flaws" in what it considers a proper number and what most programmers are looking for.

How would I alter your last bit of code here that allows keyboard entries 0 - 9 with a single decimal place, to give me what I need? Note that the worksheet's Is Number function takes the place of some of the code included in my message (which would still work if used in Excel's VBA by the way), but I left it in for completeness.

I don't have a particular range, but these measurements will never exceed 1.0". Below is something I have been posting on-and-off for many years now (starting back in my volunteering days for the compiled version of Visual Basic which preceeded my volunteering days for Excel) which explains why I am making this recommendation.

Value End With 'Clear all the Entries Back to Blank Combo Box1. Function Is Number(By Val Value As String) As Boolean Dim DP As String ' Get local setting for decimal point DP = Format$(0, ".") ' Leave the next statement out if you don't ' want to provide for plus/minus signs If Value Like "[ -]*" Then Value = Mid$(Value, 2) Is Number = Not Value Like "*[!

Set Focus Msg Box "it is needed a numeric value here", vb OKOnly vb Information, "Mistake" has Numeric = False End Function . 0-9.]*" And Not Value Like "*.*.*" And Len(Value) Here are revisions to the above functions that deal with the local settings for decimal points (and thousand's separators) that are different than used in the US (this code works in the US too, of course).

One other question: I'd like to limit the text box numeric values to decimals only (4 decimal places available, but not required)...

Value Everything works flawlessly, thank you for saving the day!

Private Sub Command Button1_Click() Dim Last Row As Object Dim ws As Worksheet Set ws = Worksheets("Data") 'Open the Storage Sheet for the Raw Data Sheets("Data"). I am also using a Class Module to establish a single set of events that will apply to your six Text Boxes. Add a Class Module to your project ("Insert/Class Module" on the VB editor's menu bar) and copy/paste the following code into the code window that opened up... Text Box Public Last Position As Long Private Sub Class1_Change() Static Last Text As String Static Second Time As Boolean Const Max Decimal As Integer = 4 Const Max Whole As Integer = 1 With Class1 If Not Second Time Then If .

Activate 'Find next empty row in "Data" sheet Set Last Row = Sheets("Data").
