Sometimes we want to use one sheet of the excel as a form that is used to get the inputs from the user. the data entered by the user, we try to save it on some other sheets that may not be accessible to the end user for the security of the data of course. In this article, we will learn how to how we can update data from one sheet to another using VBA.
So without getting any further into my boring talks, lets delve into an example to understand the concept.
We want to write this code for those employees who are working in a call center. When clients call them they take basic details like User_Name, User_ID, Phone_Number, and Problem_ID.
Now we want to write the macro for when a call comes they will note down all the above mentioned details into an excel sheet, and when they click on update that data should be updated in another sheet.
To update the data from one sheet to another sheet follow below given steps:-
• First we will insert command button in the worksheet.
• Go to Developer tab and then insert Command button from Activexcontrol.
• Assign below mentioned macro:-
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim User_Name As String, User_ID As Integer, Phone_Number As Double, Problem_ID As Integer Worksheets("Sheet1").Select User_Name = Range("B2") User_ID = Range("B3") Phone_Number = Range("B4") Problem_ID = Range("B5") Worksheets("Sheet2").Select Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Select If Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Offset(1, 0) <> "" Then Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").End(xlDown).Select End If ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select ActiveCell.Value = User_Name ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select ActiveCell.Value = User_ID ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select ActiveCell.Value = Phone_Number ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select ActiveCell.Value = Problem_ID Worksheets("Sheet1").Select Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B2").Select End Sub
Code Explanation:- First we had defined all the variables. Then we had defined the range for every variables, and then described the range for all the variables. And we had defined that where and in which range data will get update after clicking on Update button.
• To run the code press key F5 on the keyboard.
• When you will enter the data and will click on update button then data will get update in another sheet and we can enter new data in the sheet.
This way we can update the data from one sheet to another sheet through VBA in Microsoft excel. I hope I was explanatory enough. If you have any doubts regarding this article or any other excel VBA article, you can ask me in the comments section below.
