Hi,

Is there a way to have a button on a sheet be moved each time a row has been filled (specific column)?

So let's say a the button is around row 10, after some inputs in D10 the button moves down to row 11 and so on....

Is that possible?

Regards

PLace the following in the code page for the sheet and then on edit to the sheet the button will move ... depending on activex or forms type buttons then use the appropriate name for your button. Right click the tab and select view code to display the editor.

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rw As Long

    rw = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row
    Me.CommandButton1.Top = ActiveSheet.Rows(rw + 1).Top 'ActiveXbutton
    Me.Shapes("Button 1").Top = ActiveSheet.Rows(rw + 1).Top ' Form button
End Sub

 '~~> Starting Row
    i = 2
    '~~> Find the first empty Row
    Do Until Len(Trim(Range("A" & i))) = 0
        i = i + 1
    Loop

    
    CommandButton.Top = Rows(1).Height * i

For what it's worth the following is broadly similar to my first post but two differences:

1. Sets the row according to the last data in a specific column (A as presented) i.e the first version uses the last row with data at all irrespective if subsequently deleted.  This version targets the last row in the specific column.

2. Sets the left position of the button ... in columns B & F, (i.e. left of columns C & G)

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rw As Long

'    rw = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row
    rw = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    With Me.CommandButton1
        ' ActiveXbutton
        .Top = ActiveSheet.Rows(rw + 1).Top
        .Left = ActiveSheet.Columns("C").Left
    End With
    With Me.Shapes("Button 1")
         ' Form button
        .Top = ActiveSheet.Rows(rw + 1).Top
        .Left = ActiveSheet.Columns("G").Left
    End With
End Sub

This works like a charm :)

But one other thing, So I open a form to input data in a cell.
So i tried using:
Private Sub CommandButtonBtw_Click()
    Dim rw As Long
    rw = ActiveSheet.Range("D" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).row
    
    ActiveSheet.Range(rw, "D").Value = TextBoxBtw.Value
    
    Me.Hide
End Sub

Open in new window


But it gives me a 1004 error on
ActiveSheet.Range(rw, "D").Value = TextBoxBtw.Value

Open in new window


Any ideas?

Either cells(row, column)
Or
Range("a"& re)

Ie you have mixed the syntax requirements
