Run macro from clicking on a cell

Is there a way that you can run a macro from clicking on a specified
cell with a hyperlink or function. I can use the shortcut key, but some
'here' say it is not user friendly to have to use a shortcut key. help
files haven't helped.

Generally I put a "button" control in a cell with a self-explanatory 
label and a link to the macro you want to run.  Click on View/Toolbars 
and make sure "Forms" is checked.  That will make a forms toolbar 
visible which allows you to create buttons, spinners, check boxes, etc.

Good luck...

enter data in 1 cell and produce a number in another cell
I am trying to set up a form for co-workers with limited computer skills. In cell "A" the employee would enter a name and I need to have a corresponding number appear in another cell.

Automatically run macro
My name is Mike and i have a question about microsoft excel macro's. Attached is a copy of the excel sheet im working on. Below the excel sheet is the macro I built. Some of the cells contain given values and some cells are calculated from formulas. Cell (G4) is my given is related to cell (C32). The point is, I plug a value into cell (C10) and it runs through the rest of the calcs in the other cells and gives me a value to cell (C32). I built a macro that works as a goal seek pretty much. The macro makes cell (C32) equal to cell (G4) and gives me the value for cell (C10). I wan...

Excel Continuous Running Total
I posted a message earlier and have received a partial solution. I want to keep track of how much stock prices go up or down with a running total of how much they go up or down over several days until the direction changes. For example, if price go up 10 on Mon, 20 on Tues, 30 on Thurs and down 10 on Fri I want my running total column to show a positive number of 60 and then a red number of 10 and continue adding the amount of the total of the down days until the market shows an up day.

Locate a cell, based on a criteria, then use the 'Cell' command...
I am using a pivot table to configure some data. In the first column, the pivot table of course displays only one instance of the text representing of data group. What I need to do is determine in which cell a particular item of text (i.e. the criteria) resides in. Once I can locate the cell where my 'criteria' text string resides, I can then use the CELL function to return the row number.

How to hide #DIV/0! in cells waiting for input?
Hi there, I have some cells with a formula such as; =AVERAGEA(C12:C16) =ROUND(C17/25,4) =SUM(C17:G17)/100 =H17+H19 etc. etc. Until a number is input into another cell which is included in one of the formulas above the annoying #DIV/0! appears. As soon as a number is input into a 'donor cell' included in one of the calculations above then the #DIV/0! changes into its expected format. Is there a way to hide the annoying #DIV/0! that is dotted all over the spreadsheet while the 'donor' cell is empty before its result is known? The sheet looks very untidy and gives the impres...

EXCEL. When entering a whole number into a cell EXCEl is dividing that number by 10 immediatly after entry. If I place a decimal point after the number this does not happen. If I enter a number less than 1 the number is entered normally. It appears that EXCEL needs a decimal point to enter the number correctly. I have used EXCEL for many years (current version from 2004) and this has never hapenned. Any Ideas out there guys? Sounds like Fixed Decimal is set.

Macro to Find, Cut, and Paste
I have 2 LONG columns that I need to make into MANY. I want to find a word in the active column, cut from that word down to the end and the adjacent cells; then paste them at the top of the next column. and do this for all occurences of that word. I'm confused about the two columns. I'm thinking that you want to break up your list of two columns based on the word in column A. But paste both columns to the adjacent columns. So this: $H$1 $B$1 $H$2 $B$2 $H$3 $B$3 $H$4 $B$4 $H$5 $B$5 $H$6 $B$6 $H$7 $B$7 aaaa $B$8 $H$9 $B$9 $H$10 $B$10 $H$11 $B$11 $H...
