The Oscars Ballot Predictor is an Excel 2013 template that showcases a new apps for Office technology.

We use Excel to analyze data, create reports, prepare charts & presentations, do calculations and understand information. When we are doing all these, we spend quite some time, repeating same steps. For example, we may prepare and email same type of report every week with different data. By using Excel VBA, we can cut down the time we spend repeating these steps and improve our productivity. In this section of our site, you will find information, tutorials, examples, tips & resources on Excel VBA & Macros. What is VBA? VBA stands for Visual Basic for Applications. The prospect of learning new languages scares us a lot. For example the following line says hello to you: MsgBox "hello" Just like any language, VBA too has its own rules, grammatical structures & nuances.

Tonight we'll look at something a little eccentric - does Excel like Arrays? Most power-users know the answer is yes! But, let's use an example. Let's say you've created a Userform, and want to store the values of a dynamic amount of Textbox values in a Variable? How is one to approach this problem? Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()Dim ctrl As ControlDim strArr() As StringDim i As Long, j As Long ReDim strArr(1 To 500, 1 To 500) For Each ctrl In Me.Controls If TypeOf ctrl Is MSForms.TextBox Then Let i = i + 1 Let strArr(i, 1) = ctrl.Name Let strArr(i, 2) = ctrl.Text End IfNext 'For j = 1 To i' Debug.Print Me.Controls(strArr(j, 1)).Text, _' strArr(j, 1), strArr(j, 2)'Next MsgBox WorksheetFunction.VLookup( _ strArr(2, 1), strArr, 2, 0) Me.Hide: Unload MeEnd Sub I've commented-out my 'for j' loop, as that was a test, and I hardcoded the Lookup value (this is only left to the imagination).

Don't forget to check out the Video Tutorials page! Fix Badly Imported Formulas If you have imported formulas from another program, you might have run into this problem where an apostrophe gets added to the beginning of each formula; so instead of viewing the results of the formula, you are viewing the formula itself.

This code should be lightning fast, even with large amounts of data, because it loops through an array instead of looping through the worksheet. Convert phone numbers I use the following code to put phone numbers into a standard format. Paste Values in Selected Cells Delete Empty Rows Selective Autofilter Remove Hyperlinks Rename Worksheet.
