Adding Menu Buttons Programmatically

Aug 19, 2009

I have a suite of subroutines and functions stored in an .xla file, which other users have access to. It's installed on the local machine via macro which installs a user defined menu to access them from. Howerver, when an XL chart worksheet is active, this menu doesn't appear and there are a couple of functions where it would be useful to have access to when viewing such a chart. I've noticed user defined toolbar icons are available in this view, so would like to use these to access the relevant routines. I know you can insert them in code (macro recorder) but is it possible to assign macros to them from the same code? Alternatively, is it possible to show my user defined menu in chart sheets as well as normal worksheets?

Default Menu Buttons On The Spreadsheet

May 2, 2007

Is it possible to put the standard Excel buttons (as in the ribbon in 2007 or the toolbars in 2003) actually on the spreadsheet. I would like, for example, to put the " pivot table refresh button" on my spreadsheet somewhere in the middle, separate from the program. Can I extract or import these Excel program's buttons somehow to insert elsewhere?

Duplicate Custom Menu Buttons When Creating Them

May 29, 2007

I have a workbook that creates three temporary menu buttons when I open it. These work fine until I try and open more then 1 workbook at a time. This creates duplicate menu buttons (3 times the number of workbooks that I open).

I call up the procedure when each workbook is opened using this code in the "ThisWorkbook" code area: ....

Graying Out Custom Menu Buttons When Sheet/book Protected?

Oct 6, 2009

is there a way to cause my custom menu items to grey out like the built-in ones, depending on the current selection or when the status of the active worksheet/workbook changes (e.g. when the book is protected to disallow certain actions)?

Obviously I can trap any problems once the associated VBA is invoked, but it'd be more professional if I could just prevent that from happening in the first place.

Sizing With Adding Buttons

Jul 10, 2009

I've written a macro to add buttons to a sheet of mine. The buttons call up various other macros. The problem I'm having seems to be a screen update. I've set the button size to be greater than the number of characters it contains. However when I run the macro, it first adds the button at its default size (width which is too small), and bombs out.

Below is the code I'm using:

Dim Width As Integer, Height As Integer, HzSpace As Integer, VtPos as integer

Width = 144
Height = 20
VtPos = 400
HzPos = 275

Adding Rows To Dropdown Menu

Nov 28, 2011

I created a Validation list from 2 to 20. I want to have it (the list) add a row every time you select the proper data.

Example: If I want to add 2 row I would select the 2 in the drop down menu. If I need 5 rows I need to select 5 from the drop down menu.

Is this a VBA code? Or can I use a formula?

Right Click Menu - Adding (Paste Special)

Dec 30, 2008

I want to add Paste Values to the right click menu in Excel 2007. Can this be done without recording a separate macro to run it? What I mean is If I add the command itself to the right click menu, can it run of of the standard RightClick -> Paste Special -> Values option, or must I record a macro that does those steps each time?

Adding Submit Buttons To Transfer Data To Live Spreadsheet

Mar 18, 2014

I would like to set up a maintenance register where I would have:

worksheet 1 - a page where staff can choose a location and choose a maintenance issue and hit submit
worksheet 2 - after they have hit submit the detail will appear in designated cells in worksheet 2 (a ledger of maintenance issues). so each submit should send the info to a new line in worksheet 2.

I have a basic knowledge of Excel and have used formulas and functions before but not VBA/Macros. Any step by step through setting up the submit button and macro correctly?

I've tried to do Worksheet("Register").Range("A2").Value = Worksheet("Request").Range("A1") after installing a push button but all I get is errors.

Menu Bar/Navigation :: Tool That Creates A Menu Bar Or Code?

Oct 20, 2009

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. Is there a tool that creates a menu bar or code that I can add that would support navigation?

My goal is to have something with approximately 4 options (buttons?). They would link to 4 different sheets that serve as indexes within the workbook.

I know I can add a control like a button to a given sheet that would take the user to given sheet when clicked, but can I make the button 'float' above all the sheets, or add to a menu bar, or something? I just don't want to have to add the button to every sheet in the workbook.

I am looking for something simple/easy, and am not looking for anybody to do the work. I just have no idea on how to approach the problem.

Multiple Macro Buttons (radio Buttons)?

Feb 10, 2012

I am trying to create a worksheet that has multiple radio buttons. Each radio button is linked to a Macro. I need there to be many buttons running down one side of the worksheet. Each button needs to perform a macro that is relevant to the cells in the same row that it is on.

Essentially what i am trying to do is make a macro that when the button is pressed copys data from H6 and paste it into B6. The button is situated above I6. I need a button for each row from 6 to 110.

While this macro is easy to create (i use the record button and then assign the macro to the button), i would have to do this 104 times and assign a new macro to each button.

Is there a quicker way?

Change The Color Of Buttons Or Command Buttons

Mar 14, 2007

Is it possible to change the color of buttons or command buttons? There does not seem to be any place that allows this under properties for buttons, although there does for command bars. However, I've tried recording a macro as I change the color, but nothing get's recorded so I'm not sure what the syntax would be.

I have a spreadsheet with several buttons and I'd like them to change colors as they are pressed so it's possible to see what you've already done. And then, as soon as any other cell on the sheet is changed, the buttons reset color.

Chart Menu Bar Won't Change To Data Menu Bar

Apr 26, 2007

my worksheet menu bar is displaying the ' Chart' menu no matter what I do. Not only do I have no charts in the workbook, (verified this by: )

For Each ws In Worksheets

MsgBox ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count

Next ws

but adding worksheets, selecting various parts of a worksheet, creating a chart and deleting it, and everything else I've tried has no effect.

One interesting thing - the first chart I added (to test if it would 'unstick' itself upon deletion of the new chart) was named 'Chart 2', implying there was a chart1 that existed previously.... although I am fairly certain I never added a chart to this workbook at any point.

Also, the menu bar is working fine in other workbooks, and changes to chart and back to data like normal.
