I have one sheet with about 100 activex controls (and another few 100 on the other sheets in the file), most combobox, but some checkbox as well. There are 30 of them lined up, one in each row. One at a time, one control will basically change to an icon only. If you select it in design mode, the name shows in the range name area of the toolbar, but when you select properties you get the properties for the sheet. Effectively I have an icon with nothing linked to it anymore.
For a while, it seemed to be somewhat random. But for the last few days, it is now cascading down. First combobox #6, then #7, etc. I'm now on #11 or so. Seems to happen when you save then reopen the file, not if you just keep working in the file without closing it.
The macros behind the boxes are still there and run once I recreate the missing box (normally with an Alt-D, and editing the properties; but I've also created from scratch from the toolbar, and used alt-C, alt-V) they work fine. I've run a compile, with no change. Any thoughts on finding the root cause? I thought it might be from blowing up a macro, but I've tried it without even editing a macro and it has the issue.
I was wondering how I could change my desktop icon for one specific workbook to something other than the excel icon. I saw the below link (2nd tip) but that changes the icon for every file of a specific file type. I just want to change one specific file's icon on my desktop to something custom, like a clipart picture of my choosing. I also know that this can be done with shortcuts, but I need it to be changed on the original file. I tried using the IconChanger program, but the icon stayed with the file name so if I did a "save as" or emailed the file, it disappeared. I want it to stick with that file for good, or any file I duplicate from the original, and work on other computers as well.

Before i start and to save you time looking at my profile, i am using excel 2010. So i have one worksheet with loads and loads of Combo boxes (form control) that are linked to a cell on another sheet and that sheet uses the linked cell along with a index and match formula in one to fetch data from a range for my chart. So based on the selection of the combo box option the chart changes.
My question is how do i change the size of the text in the Combo boxes (form control)? Is there any VBA to do this? .Font.Size?
If not i don't mind changing all my boxes to Combo boxes (activeX control), but i do have over 100 so what would be the best and fastest way to change all my current Combo boxes (form control) to Combo boxes (activeX control) whilst keeping everything the same so it all still functions. Maybe some more VBA? Plus i also need to be able to change the size in the new Combo boxes (activeX control) as well so telling me how would be splendid.
I have a sheet with many active x check boxes already created but with visibility off. I want code that turns on the visibility, repositions, and checks certain check boxes whose name is based on values in an array named configs.
Here is the code with the problem line indicated:
The repositioning and visibility work fine. I get an "object doesn't support property or method" error on the indicated line. What is the proper syntax to do this?
I needed to put a Checkbox on a Worksheet. The standard Checkbox options in Excel FormControl and ActiveX Control were too small. I found a work-around using the following macro attached to an ActiveX Label that was formatted as Wingdings font. The macro basically changes the character from a empty box Wingdings Chr(168) to a checked box Wingdings Chr(254) when the user clicks on the label.
Private Sub Label1_Click() If Label1.Caption = Chr(254) Then Label1.Caption = Chr(168)
But I get this error on an ErrorHandler that I have included in the macro. "An error has occurred. Error number =438. Error Description=Object doesn't support this property or method."
It has been awhile since I've worked on anything and I can't remember how to do something that is probably very simple. I have placed an option button on my worksheet and cannot for the life of me remember how to change the properties. When I right click and select properties a box pops up but there is no info there. I want to be able to change the name and group etc.
I need to send out an order form (spreadsheet) to 100's of people that need to complete the form and email back to me as an attachment. If I was completing the order form myself I would use the "email" icon that I have pinned to my Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). However, most of the recipients don't even know the Toolbar exists.
Is there a way I can insert an icon / hyperlink in the spreadsheet that does the same thing as the QAT icon. I can insert text to say "click here to email your order" (or similar).
I need to keep it in an excel format and an icon is so much better that asking them to save to their hard-drive and attach to an email, etc.
The QAT icon is exactly what is needed but I need to provide a spreadsheet that works for folk who haven't got the icon.
I'm trying to make my Excel/VBA application look as little like Excel as I can and there's now almost no trace of Excel - so is there any way I can replace the standard Excel green "X" icon that appears on Windows Taskbar with my own?
I'm looking to have a doc where people time stamp their start and stop times. I have found that Control(apple) - Shift -semi colon works. The problem i'm having is that I want people to be able to use a command icon in their toolbars for this task as opposed to people have to use the keyboard. I can use a button with a macro but this is not possible as our excel corrupts when there are too many macro's
I'm using the bellow code which I think Igot from this site, to change the excell icon to my own, Only thing is that in the top left hand side of the workbook still says: "Microsoft Excel - My File Name". Does any of you fine people know how to get rid of the Microsoft Excel and show only "My File Name"?

I want to put in place a CF icon set of either a green tick or a red cross in cells A1:A20 but when I get to "Manage Rules option box" It is only showing me that I can use "values". Is there a formula that i can use to make it choose the icon set based on text of either "y" or "n" in cells A1:A20 .
I have tried to just change the font to "wingdings2" but other need to use the worksheet and they wont know to use the corresponding text of "O" & "P" .
I want to copy the First Row which is the Column heading of one Sheet to a different Sheet Example : From Col A till Col G First Row is to be copied as an Image. Normally I do it using the Camera Icon, however when I tried recording a Macro for the same it did not work..
So how do I that if I provide the Start Column and End Column Alphabet as a Variable is that possible.. I want this Image to not remain Volatile which is the case using the Camera Tool..
So, how do i get the picture of only the first row or any row and store it is an Image in a different sheet as static picture so that even when the sheet is moved to a different location it does not make a difference to the Image.
I am running WinNT and need to find the folder containing the default icons available for use on buttons in the toolbar window. I can copy the image but it saves as a picture (device independent bitmap). I want to be able to send the icon to other people so they can put it in their directory and choose to select it.
