Toolbar Macro Button

Jun 11, 2006

I've created a custom toolbar via Excel's toolbar wizard, to which I have added several macro buttons. However, when clicked, instead of running the assigned macro, Excel instead attempts to open my already open file?? I think I read something about having to manually change the buttons to refer to a .xla ??? Not sure though.

Macro Button On Quick Access Toolbar Disappears

Apr 15, 2014

I have written a macro. The macro in question simply shows a user form. There is far more code within the user form itself. It is designed to automatically format a workbook.

I saved the macro as an .xlam add-in file to the default folder. I then added a button for the macro to my Quick Access Toolbar. This seemed to work great.

However, when I open a new file that I want to run the macro on, the button disappears. In fact, a 2nd Excel window opens up on my task bar. The original window still has the macro button, but the new window does not.

Email A File To Install A Macro, Toolbar & Button To A User. Re-explained In Post 19

Feb 17, 2009

I have finally come up with a macro and would like to install it to around 10 people's "Personal Workbook" in my department. Let me explain a bit further...

We use web-based software which has an "Export to Excel" option which we all use. The resulting data populates into a spreadsheet automatically.

I would like the user to be able to click on Tools/Macro/Run Macro and then run that particular macro. I assume that this macro should be in the "Personal Workbook" so that the macro will be visible no matter what worksheet they may have open?

Can this be done automatically/with a macro or must this be manually done?

I"m using Excel 2003.

Toolbar Command Button As Toggle Button

Aug 13, 2008

I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.

.State = msobuttondown
.State = msobuttonup

Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.

Toolbar Command Button

Aug 20, 2008

I am running Excel 2003 and in my workbook I created a macro and assigned it to a toolbar comman button, "Copy Filtered Data". This macro copies the visible data into a new workbook.

This works well but others in my company will also be accessing this workbook from a sharepoint and I discovered that when they open it this command button is not on their toolbar.

Would anyone know what I need to do to have this button load on the toolbar when the workbook opens?

Also, I would like this button to either unload or greyout when the workbook that this button is intended for is closed.

Save As Toolbar Button

Feb 17, 2009

I have created a toolbar button to save a file as a specific name based on a cell value. The macro runs fine, but the button changes priority when the new file is saved.

i.e. the original file is called "quoting_tool" and the newly created file is called "quoting_tool_'B3'". However, the next time I click this button in the original file, it requests the new file as the home of the toolbar button. I have tried saving the original file after adding the button, but that doesn't work.

Transfer Dada From ISeries Button On Sheet (Not ToolBar)

Mar 14, 2014

I am looking to create a form button in Excel 2010 that runs a .tto file. I have an add-in for Excel 2010 called "Transfer Data From Iseries" The .TTO file is a definition file of files, SQL, etc. What I need is a button on the screen (I do not want to try to explain to 1K users on how to add an add-in in Excel. When you click on the button it should open the transfer dialog box and then they put in a userid/password and it populates within that Excel file.

I tried to record a macro to get the script, but it does not record this information. I also tried to use Insert > Object in excel and it works, except that it does not open the data into that specific excel file (the one that you are in).

Custom Toolbar Button Setting Certain Template To Open

Sep 20, 2006

I created a custom toolbar button which works perfectly.

Because I needed to save each workbook as a specific workbook this is taken care of by the vb code.

I would like when the button is pressed for the original workbook template to be opened.

At this moment if I have a blank workbook or no workbook open and I press the button the programme opens a version of the workbook but not the template version how do I point Excel at the templates.

Opening Workbooks From Macro In Toolbar?

Mar 13, 2013

What I'm trying to achieve.I'm trying to create a toolbar to have visible in excel which provides me with shortcuts to a selection of functions and some other useful documents.

I've created a document "Toobar 1.xls" in column B of which I have the file locations of the documents I want to open, the documents are moved from time to time and it is easier for other users to update the spreadsheet than vb.As you can see below I've written a piece of code to open up a document, I've created a function because there are a few documents I want to create links to and thought it would be cleaner to do it like this. This code is stored in "Module1" of "Toolbar 1.xls".

I've then created a new toolbar in excel and added a custom menu item and allocated it the macro "Pension_Credit_Calc".

When I run the code from within "Toolbar1.xls" it works fine, however if I try to run it from another workbook I get "run time error 1004". I suspect it's probably something to do with where I've stored my code,

PS. The reason I have not simply created a shortcut in the quicklaunch bar is that I will also be altering the workbooks once opened.


Function OpenUp(FileLocation) As String
Workbooks.Open (FileLocation)
End Function [code]....

Share A Toolbar That Calls Macro From An Add-in

Mar 14, 2008

I have created some macros that need to be used in several workbooks by more than one users, so I put them in an add-in and gave them instructions on how to get the add-in. I also created a toolbar with buttons calling those macros, attached it to a workbook the users can open, and instructed them to open that workbook once to get the toolbar.

Both the add-in and the toolbar workbook are on a network drive that my users can access, but when they get the add-in, it gets copied to their own add-in folder.

Here's my problem:
When a user tries to click on one of the buttons in the toolbar, the button tries to call the macro using the path that would be valid on my computer to get to my add-in folder. This path includes my user name, so it doesn't go to their own add-in folder: it goes to my add-in folder on that computer if I ever logged in on that particular machine, or it goes nowhere.

When I created the button, I attached the macros by referring to the add-in workbook by name only, without referring to a path, so I don't know why MY path ended up defined on that toolbar.

How can I go around this? I manually relinked all the buttons for that user, and I can do it for the other users (there aren't that many users nor that many buttons), but I'd rather avoid it: I'll have to re-do it if the toolbar is updated and it just seems like more work than should be necessary.

I'm also opened to suggestions on a better way to share those macros. They can't be attached to the workbooks because we use new workbooks every year - they're emailed to us by the people who create them and for a variety of reasons, pasting everything into a workbook of our own is not a good option.

Assigning Macro To Each Button To Zip Files Dependent On Button Name?

Jan 28, 2014

Context: I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of employee names and their certifications. I want to be able to assign a button to each employee in column B with a macro that is able to zip files from a folder that contains that employees name.

The following code assigns buttons to each employee in column B. At the moment the code I have is able to assign the macro "Zip" to each button.

[Code] .....

Now, this Zip macro is able to zip the file for the employee "Anthony Tran". However I need it to be able to recognise which employee's button I've clicked and search the same files as above except with that employees name instead of "Anthony Tran".

If it makes things easier, the code for creating buttons for each employee is able to name that button as the employees name that it represents.

Macro Doesn't Work On Button, But Fine From Macro Menu!

Dec 15, 2008

I've recorded a macro that copies an entire tab into a new spreadsheet then goes on the copy and paste information from one tab to another.

When I run the macro from the Tools>Macros menu it works perfectly.
But when I copy the code and add it to that of a button it fails and posts the following error: Run-time error '1001': Select method of Range class failed.

The first attachement shows the code for the macro as it is alone, and the second shows how I simply copied and pasted it into the 'view code' window of the button.

Needless to say I'm a beginner at macros and only every record them, I can usually make stuff work that way but this has me stumped!

Creating A Macro, That Creates A New Button, Which Itself Runs A Macro..

Dec 15, 2009

I have a long complicated macro that processes a ton of data and gives the output in a new sheet. I then want to create new buttons (or some sort of user clickable triggers) on this new sheet that runs another macro.

I have got the actual adding of buttons in the sheet working, but I can't find a way to automatically assign macros to newly generated buttons during runtime. Is this even possible (or are there any clever tricks I could use to get around this?)
