Add-in Opens Workbook It Was Created In

Oct 27, 2006

I've created an add-in that runs a simple macro. The problem I have is that when I run the add-in it opens the workbook I originally created it from - is this what I should expect it to do? How do I stop this from happening?

Also, do I need to have the workbook from which I created the add in located in the same place on every machine I want to use the add in on? At the moment if I move the original workbook the add-in won't work.

Autofilter When Workbook Opens

Jul 16, 2008

My workbooks contains 2 worksheets with data and autofilters on for each column in use.

When my workbook opens I am trying to reset the autofilters of each worksheet in the workbook and to filter the data according to one criteria in one column.

This is what I have that works to reset each worksheet but I haven't been able to figure out how to subsequently filter each worksheet.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each w In Worksheets
If w.FilterMode Then w.ShowAllData
w.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True _
, AllowFiltering:=True
Next w
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

The autofilter sits in A3 to N3 and I am trying to filter according to column M (i.e. 13th column)

Workbook Automatically Opens After Closing

Jan 6, 2010

I have a workbook on a share drive that is used by multiple people. In the event that someone leaves the workbook open after using it, I have a timer function that pops up a splash screen after 4 minutes of inactivity which states, "This workbook will close in 1 minute if there is no further activity". If there is no further activity in that minute, the workbook closes.

The code works fine...unless the workbook is manually closed in that minute between the splash screen and when the timer would have closed the workbook. If that happens, the workbook closes normally and then briefly reopens and closes a minute later when the timer would have closed the workbook. Is there any code to prevent this?

Force Specified Sheet To Display When Workbook Opens

Jun 11, 2013

I need to set the "Sheet1" to be the sheet that always displays first, regardless of what sheet was active when last saved.

The reason is that I have a sheet with instructions on it as how to use the Workbook, including "You must Enable Macros" etc. When Macros are enabled, it's all good, as most people use a USERFORM which I have coded to set "Sheet1".Select and save their work upon closing using the USERFORM.

BUT when the advanced users modify other Sheets directly without using the USERFORM, and "SAVE" and then "Close" , the next time a user opens the Workbook (If they do not enable Macros) it opens to the sheet the advanced user Saved on. Thus killing my instructions page and putting the exact people I did not want messing around on certain sheets, on those sheets, fully bypassing the USERFORM created to avoid the problem.

I can force the workbook to switch to "Sheet1" and Save and Close, every time someone closes or EXITs, BUT I quickly realized when testing that any mistakes made are then permanent because you cant EXIT without Saving.

So. Is there a setting somewhere (Not Requiring Enabled Macros) to force a Workbook to ALWAYS open "Sheet1" first, regardless of what Sheet was last saved in the Workbook?

Worksheet Activate Not Happening When Workbook First Opens

May 18, 2009

I have a workbook where the sheets are all protected and I want to stop users scrolling up or across beyond the limits of the input areas.
I have used the following code (or variations of)...

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Me.ScrollArea = "A1:G32"
End Sub

This works fine except that when I first open the workbook, the first sheet displayed can still be scrolled. As soon as you move to another sheet and then back again, it is then OK.

It appears that the Worksheet_Activate code does not execute when the workbook is first opened.

How do I get round this?

Data Dump Query When Workbook Opens

Workbook Automatically Opens When Opening/Closing Any Other

Mar 14, 2008

I have a problem, where every time I close or open any workbook, Excel prompts me to "Enable or Disable Macros" in one particular workbook, wether I have tried to open it or not. In the said workbook, I have a macro that automatically updates a pivot table upon selecting the worksheet where the pivot table resides.

The code for it is as follows:

Sub UpdateIt()
Dim iP As Integer
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
For iP = 1 To ActiveSheet.PivotTables.Count
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Call UpdateIt
End Sub

There is something in the code that calls UpdateIt any time a workbook is opened, closed or selected.

Sort Column Using VBA When Workbook Opens - Runtime 91 Error

Jun 24, 2014

I'm trying to introduce some VBA code to an existing workbook that will automatically sort column A alphabetically on Sheet 2 (Summary) (excluding rows 1 & 2 as they contain headings) whenever the workbook is opened.

At the moment this code doesn't automatically run and when I run it manually I get a run-time error '91' the first time I try and when I run it for a second time (again manually) it works.

The code I've got at the moment is:

'The following code will run the sorting subroutine when the workbook is opened:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Call SortByWave
End Sub
'And this subroutine will enable the autofilter functionality, clear all existing filters and then filter the data on column A:
Sub SortByWave()

Workbook Open Events Fires Once. Subsequent Opens Causes Error

Oct 3, 2007

I have a program that uses the Document Open event to display a custom form. This program is being used on about 50 computers for the past 8 years with no problems. One user has a problem now. They can open the program once and the code fires. But when the user tries to open the same file a second time, the "Microsoft Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close" dialog box is displayed. The document that is recovered has no vba modules and no code in the Document open event. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Office Professional. Shut down all firewalls.

Refer To Workbook With Name That Is Created By Macro?

Sep 28, 2011

I have the following code that creates a new workbook and names it after the value of a cell in another workbook. Another part of the macro will switch back and forth between the original workbook and the newly created workbook.

What is the best way to refer to new workbook? I'm familiar with the "workbooks "VARIABLE NAME".Activate" style but, the name of the new workbook will change every time the macro runs and I'm not sure how to refer to it.

the code below.

HTML Code:
Sub MakeNewBook()
Dim wB As Workbook
Dim nPath As String

How To Identify Workbook Created From Template

Nov 7, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet that I wish to save as a template. However, when the a new workbook is created from the template it needs to be saved as a Macro Enabled workbook not just a workbook which is the default. To achieve this I added the line 'thisworkbook.FileFormat=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled' to the 'beforesave' macro for the workbook. This works fine except that it makes saving the file as a template quite difficult.

How I can trap the first time a workbook created from a template using New is saved would be most useful.

Workbook Does Not Copy To Vba Created Folder

I am having trouble getting a copy of current workbook to save (with a hopefully unique name) into a vba created folder. The folder creates fine on any drive that I have access to, but the workbook never turns up. The code is only an extract from the whole but it still fails in isolation.

Sub Macro1()
Dim fso
Dim fol As String
Dim flag As String
fol = "E:Excelb4macrobackups" ' change to match the folder path
Ans5 = MsgBox("Create Backup of " & ActiveWorkbook.Name & "?" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & " Backup File Path:" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & fol, vbYesNoCancel + vbExclamation)
If Ans5 = vbNo Then Exit Sub
If Ans5 = vbCancel Then MsgBox "Procedure Terminated!", vbExclamation: Exit Sub.........

Extra Files Created In Same Workbook Folder

Jan 22, 2009

I have a Workbook that is located in a Networked Folder and is used by several people every day. The Workbook has a lot of VBA and also has links to other workbooks. I am noticing that over time there are several extra files being created from this excel workbook, in the same folder. The Workbook is the only file in this folder. They are not associated with any program and are just a File Type. They are titled a series of 8 random Letters and Numbers and range is size from 700 KB to about 1 MB (Slightly smaller then the Workbook file size).

Also, Is possible to automatically delete these files when they are not needed? or better yet is there some way to Prevent these files from being created in the first place?

File / Workbook Created By Macro Is Making It Heavier?

Jul 4, 2014

I am creating 4 Sheets from a Main Sheet by Filtering Data based on different values in a fixed column, then the Filtered Rows are automatically pasted in the respective sheets.
Then these 4 Sheets are creating another file.

The same thing done manually by Grouping the 4 SHeets and then Move Copy into a New workbook also makes the file heavier.

Everything works fine however though the data is not much the file is very heavy, so what do i do to make it of appropriate size ?

Copy Paste Cells To Newly Created Workbook

Aug 9, 2008

My code in the first workbook generates a new workbook with a variable in the filename, then copies the cells from the first workbook to the newly created workbook. This code is working properly when used in a draft worksheet I use for testing. As soon as I put it in the master file, an error message pops up "Runtime error 1004 : select method of range class failed". Then the debug sends me to the line " Cells.Select ". What should I be looking for, why does my code work on one file but when i put it in another one it doesn't ?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim line_counter As Long
Dim prm_line_value As Boolean
prm_line_value = False
prm_line_value = Sheets("Rate").Cells(1 + line_counter, 1).Value
line_counter = line_counter + 1
Loop Until prm_line_value = False
line_counter = line_counter - 1
