Excel Macro populate SharePoint Form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to take a macro where when it runs, it can populate a form on a sharepoint site.  So far most of this code works, however, I am having issues with sending information to 3 of the data fields,  two are listed as FieldType="SPFieldUserMulti" and one as FieldType="SPFieldNote".  Any help would be greatly appreciated.        

    Option Explicit

    Sub Create_Ticket()

        Dim Site As Object
        Set Site = New InternetExplorerMedium
        Dim URL As String
        URL = "HTML of my site"

        Site.Navigate URL
        While Site.Busy

        Dim oHTMLDoc As Object
        Set oHTMLDoc = Site.Document
        Site.Visible = True

        'Next Line works
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl01_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_TextField").Value = ActiveCell.Value
        'Next line Does not work  - populates an address box (Validates the name entered with the email directory)
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl02_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_UserField_HiddenEntityDisplayText").Value = "John Doe"
        'Next line works
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl03_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_DateTimeField_DateTimeFieldDate").Value = Date
        'Next line does not work - populates an address box (Validates the name entered with the email directory)
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_UserField").Value = "Help Desk"
        'Next line does not work - populates a multiple line box
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl05_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_TextField").Value = ActiveCell.offset(0,1).value
        'Next line works - populates a drop down box
        oHTMLDoc.getElementById("ctl00_m_g_6f60cced_f7e9_478a_9b49_6256a35e6213_ctl00_ctl04_ctl06_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_DropDownChoice").Value = "Prevent"

        While Site.Busy
        Site.Visible = True

    End Sub

  • Hi RS_123456,

    This forum(Excel for Developers) is for development issues related to Excel Object Model and your problem is more related to Visual Basic for Application, so I would move this thread into  Visual Basic for Application.
    Thanks for your understanding.
