I assume you want to edit and delete items on the Mamf sheet. Which columns on that sheet do you want to be able to edit?

Just to clarify the delete bit, I would delete an entire row

OK, here's the delete code. Add a button to frmAbsences named cmdDelete and add this code. I'll be back in a few minutes with the edit code.

Private Sub cmdDelete_Click()

    Dim lngLastRow As Long
    Dim lngRow As Long
    
    lngLastRow = Range("B1048576").End(xlUp).Row
    
    If cmbStaffName = "" Then
        MsgBox "Please select a Staff Name to be deleted"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
    If vbYes = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete staff member " & cmbStaffName.Text & "?", vbYesNo) Then
        For lngRow = 4 To lngLastRow
            If Cells(lngRow, "B") = cmbStaffName Then
                Cells(lngRow, "B").EntireRow.Delete
            End If
        Next
    End If
    
End Sub

Hi Martin,

The delete code is great thank you, however it deletes any random record with that staff name. There are several records for some staff names, I would like to be able to choose which record to delete.
I have put a list box on the userform,  could I choose which record from the list box? Or scroll through the records in the form to choose the one to delete?

OK, I thought you meant that you wanted to delete, say, row 12 from the Mamf sheet. Where do the records reside that you want to delete?

The records are on the absences worksheet. There is a table on there called absences which the frmabsences adds records to.

OK, so let me double-check. You want to select an entry in Listbox1 on frmAbsence and then either delete that entry from both the list and the Absences sheet or edit that Absences entry on the sheet. Correct?

One more question. You say you want column "C" to be editable. Are there rules to what it can be changed to?

Hi Martin,

Column C is a combobox of Names selected from a Staff List Table -  StaffList[Name] It should be a name in that list.

Columns D & E are dates, I use the frmabsences to enter the dates using a text box and the cdate vba

I hope this all makes sense

Here's a workbook that allows you to edit and delete entries from the Absences sheet. There is a problem however and that is that deleting records causes problems with your existing formulas.

Hi Martin,

Thank you for all the work you've put into this. It is exactly what I'm looking for. When I edit records it doesn't appear to change the right record.

There is an entry for example 5 rows down called Ann Green, I've tried changing the end date and it changes a different record leaving Ann Green record unchanged.

I have a look through the code but I cant really establish what is causing this.

Replace the cmdOK_Click sub on frmEdit with this.

Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
Dim lngRowToUpdate As Long

With Sheets("Absences")
    lngRowToUpdate = frmAbsences.ListBox1.ListIndex + 4
    If vbYes = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to update the absence for " _
          & .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "C") _
          & " for the period " & .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "D") & " to " _
          & .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "E"), vbYesNo) Then
        .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "C") = cboName.Text
        .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "D") = txtFirst.Text
        .Cells(lngRowToUpdate, "E") = txtLast.Text
    End If
End With

Unload Me

End Sub

Open in new window

BTW I noticed that the code for adding an absence allows the end date to be before the start date. Also if it were my workbook I wouldn't blank out the date when an invalid date is added. IMO it's better to just highlight it. That way the user can see whet he typed in and not think "dumb program, I know I entered a good date".
