This article has also been published on Microsoft Office Online: Working with Excel tables in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) In Working with Tables in Excel 2013, 20 I promised to add a page about working with those tables in VBA too. On the VBA side there seems to be nothing new about Tables. Best regards, For a cell within an Excel 2007 Table (the table is named "Table1"), with banded coloring of cells within the table, the . Color Index property of the cell returns "No fill" regardless of the cell color. Color Index always returns -4142 for both Green and White cells colored by Table banding. Color Index -4142 Then '-4142 corresponds to No Fill.
They are addressed as List Objects, a collection that was introduced with Excel 2003. Select ' Select just row 4 (header row doesn't count! The code in the following post (due to post size limitations) is intended to change the color of a Wingding dot character in a cell based upon the contents of the adjacent cell. Is the Color Index value only available through List Objects("Table1")? I am new to Excel Macro coding and can't seem to find a reference for the Table object model on the Web or in the Help. ' Written by Ken Johnson 'Check for changes to any of the dropdown cells 4 columns to the right of the Tasks column If Not Intersect(Target, Range("Tasks"). Value Case "Not Started" 'Make the wingding character the same color as the cell interior so that it is not visible With rg Cell.
Jan, I just did a test and yes I can get vba to add a simple formula in a simple table. Error Message = "Only values in the list can be entered" .
I'm only showing a tiny bit here, a Sort on cell color (orangish) and a filter on the font color. A List in 2003 only has the default sort and autofilter possibilities we have known since Excel 5 and which had hardly been expanded at all in the past 12 years or so. It may help to turn off screenupdating at the beginning of your code though: Application. If I apply table style using VBA, it adds "Column1" for the first cell, which is not necessary. Thanks, Mohan Hi Mohan, You cannot prevent the title row from appearing, as Excel needs that for referencing columns in the table. Once I set up the Combo Box properties as you advised, it does return the value I wanted. Color Index = 44 'Gold End With Case "Late" With rg Cell. Assuming your cell is within the data Body Range of the table and you have no column striping you'd get something like this: Function Get Style Element From Table Cell(o Cell As Range, o Lo As List Object) As Table Style Element '------------------------------------------------------------------------- ' Procedure : Get Style Element From Table Cell ' Company : JKP Application Development Services (c) ' Author : Jan Karel Pieterse ' Created : 2-6-2009 ' Purpose : Function to return the proper style element from a cell inside a table '------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dim l Row As Long 'Determine on what row we are inside the table l Row = o Cell.
But there are significant changes to this part of the object model and I am only going to touch on the basic parts here. Name = _ "Table1" ' No go in 2003 Active Sheet. Table Style = "Table Style Light2" End Sub But the new stuff is right there already: Table Styles. Line Style = xl Dash End Sub This changes the linestyle of the bottom of your table. If you have any other workbook open, all tables with the same tablestyle appear in your changed style! Select ' Select only data of first column ' No go in 2003 . Offset(0, 9)) Is Nothing Then 'Format the font color in the cells to the left of the dropdown cells according to the value in the dropdown cell Dim rg Cell As Range For Each rg Cell In Intersect(Target, Range("Tasks").
Converting a range to a table starts with the same code as in Excel 2003: Sub Create Table() Active Sheet. A collection of objects which are a member of the Workbook object. You can change the formatting of a table Style, e.g. But if you save your file, close Excel and open Excel again with the file, the changes are gone. Address Next End Sub This snippet of code works exactly the same in Excel 2003, so nothing new there (well, that is, in 2003 those tables ARE called Lists).
Add( _ Range("Table1#All],[Column2"), xl Sort On Cell Color, xl Ascending, , _ xl Sort Normal). A good way to come acquainted with the VBA behind them is by recording macro's while fooling around with them. I tried the code below but it's not working (it doesn't like the Structured Reference syntax) Also, if the Tables are Workbook in scope in Excel 2007, how do I set a reference to them without using the worksheet on which it resides? Dim my Table As List Object Set my Table = This Workbook. Of course there is more to learn and know about tables and lists. Thanks, Brian Hello, How would you use VBA to loop through each row of the Excel 2007 table/list and get values from specific columns and work with them? like this: Sub Change Table Styles() ' No Go in Excel 2003 Active Workbook. This is because you've just changed a built-in tablestyle. You might need to work with specific parts of a table. If you ask me, I find it strange that the Workbook is a tablestyles' parent, whereas built-in table styles behave as if being bound to the Application object. Here is a couple of examples on how to achieve that. Select ' Select just the data of the entire table . If you want full control over your table style, you'd better duplicate a built-in style and modify and apply that style to your table. The code comments show you where Excel 2003 differs from 2013, 20. Let's start with finding all tables on the active worksheet: Sub Find All Tables On Sheet() Dim o Sh As Worksheet Dim o Lo As List Object Set o Sh = Active Sheet For Each o Lo In o Sh. Sub Selecting Part Of Table() Dim o Sh As Worksheet Set o Sh = Active Sheet '1: with the listobject With o Sh. Add(Always Insert:=True) If you then want to write something in the first cell of the new row you can use:o New Row. Adding a comment to a table through the UI is a challenge, because you have to go to the Name Manager to do that. Hello: I am currently trying to use a workbook which was developped using a prior version of Excel. Select, but in a List Object I can't get it to work... Value = i End If Next i As you can see, I'm nowhere with this script, I'd appreciate help thanks, Radek Hi Radek, You can simply load both columns into the listbox (which you set to have two columns and set the column width of the second column to zero) and set the boundcolumn property to the second column. Show Table Style Row Stripes Then 'We are in the table's body If l Row Mod 2 = 0 Then Set Get Style Element From Table Cell = o Lo. Table Style Elements(xl Row Stripe1) Else Set Get Style Element From Table Cell = o Lo. Table Style Elements(xl Whole Table) End If Else Set Get Style Element From Table Cell = o Lo. Table Style Elements(xl Whole Table) End If End Function Sub test() Dim o Lo As List Object Dim o TSt As Table Style Element Set o Lo = Active Sheet. Value="Value For New cell" This is something Excel 2003 cannot do and is related to the fact that a table is a range name. Luckily Microsoft did include the table object if it comes to recording your actions, unlike the omission on the charting side...]]
