Excel VBA Updating existing text label

Posted on 2007-03-26

Hi all

I'm attempting to update a text label with a subtotal formula.  I'd like to do it without relying on VBA, but I'll take what I can get.  Subtotal will update anytime an autofilter criteria is changed, so I'd like to rely on that to change my label, but I can figure out how to do it outside a procedure, which follows:

Sub Calc_Subtotals()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    With Sheet12.Subtotal_lbl
    .Caption = Range("D6").Text
    End With

    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Thanks for any suggestions!

I assume that you want to change the caption on a command button or the like. If so, you can take advantage of the fact that the Calculate event sub runs whenever you use the AutoFilter and thereby change the value in a SUBTOTAL formula. Try the following sub in the codepane of the worksheet containing your AutoFilter.

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
With Sheet12.Subtotal_lbl
      .Caption = Range("D6").Text
End With
End Sub
