I'm working on a macro for work. It's a simple workbook with about 10 tabs. I would like for the user to open up the workbook but it not have the prompt foir enabling or disabling macros. Just on this one sheet, not other macros on other sheets.
I have a macro-enabled workbook, in sheet1 i have two columns Country and Codes, they are in column C and D respectively. I used vlookup formula in generating the codes of the countries pasted in column C, they are being looked-up in sheet2 in column C and D as well. I already have 100000+ rows in sheet 2 under column C and D that's why the file is now heavy. Is it possible to encode column C and D in sheet 2 but still can be looked-up? or is there any other way to minimize the file size.
I have excel sheets that cross link with each other. I've just migrated to Office 2007. When I open my excel sheet I always get the question at the bottom of the tool bar Security Warning Data connections have been disabled. And then I have to click on option and enable content.
My question is, how do I always enable the content?
I wrote code for a few macros in a "save as" or practice version of a spreadsheet. Once I got the bugs worked out on the practice book I pasted the code into the actual spreadsheet I want to use. The problem is that whenever I run one of the macros it opens the practice book that I was using when I wrote the code. There should be no need for this and I can't figure out why that's happening. The code doesn't mention any workbook by name so I don't know why it would want to open the practice book.
I used Scheduled Task to set up my spreadsheet to open daily. I have the code with assistance to pull out the due date items and place them into an email.
I have come across XLSTART/AUTOEXEC/ACTIVATE...ETC... But cannot figure out the code that will automatically "enabling macro" once Scheduled Task opens the spreadsheet?
Then once the macro runs, the email with the due dates, how can this auto send without user interaction? (currently I would have to hit send)
I am trying to make the process totally automated to open the spreadsheet at a certain time, send the email with due dates and close the spreadsheet.
Following code in ThisWorkbook--
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Check_Date_Send_Mail End Sub Code in Module1--
Option Explicit Sub Check_Date_Send_Mail() Dim wbBook As Workbook Dim wsSheet As Worksheet Dim rnDate As Range, rnValue As Range Dim stAddress As String, stMsg As String Dim stRecipient As String, stSubject As String Dim stPost As String Set wbBook = ThisWorkbook Set wsSheet = wbBook.Worksheets("Sheet1") With wsSheet Set rnDate = .Range("d2:t23") End With
I am wirking on a macro which opens a 'sourcefile' and then do some filtering and vlookuping to distribute the data to several files. When i run the macro from the VBA editor, everything runs fine. But if i run it from .xls file, the macro stops after opening the 'sourcefile'
Workbooks.Open Filename:=sourcefile For i = 0 To 13 'do something... Next
I'm using a macro to open an other excel file to get data from it. this goes by Workbooks.Open Filename:=totalopen (totalopen =Filepath & filename earlier defined) Because the opening file can have the same filename, my question; is it possible to open the latest/newest saved file? So also look at the saving date/time of opening excel file.
I was wondering if there is a way to open up a given program (notepad in my example) ..paste data from cells copied in excel and save the notepad file to a specific location and close it out?? The file path will be given from a data cell in excel as well as the file name.
From searching the forums i've come up with the way to open notepad using the lines
Dim RetVal As Variant RetVal = Shell("C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32 otepad.exe")
I have a user form with a TextBox (TextBox1), the user enters a filename and presses CommandButton1, this then opens the file. I have set an error trap so that if the file does not exist a MsgBox prompts the user to re-enter. So far so good, however if the error trap operates any further files entered are declared as non-existent even if I know they exist. I thought this would be quite easy but once again VBA bites me back!!
here is my code
stPath = ThisWorkbook.Path stFilename = "Retention" & "" & TextBox1 & ".xls" stFullname = stPath & "" & stFilename 'completes full path of for TextBox1
On Error Goto Errorhandler: 'go to this if file does not exist Workbooks.Open stFullname ActiveWorkbook.RunAutoMacros xlAutoOpen
I presently have a macro that, when run, takes to conents of C4 and C6 and saves a new version of the file being worked on into a folder on my desktop. I love the macro with the exception of one part: I don't want to be prompted to overwrite the file if it already exists. How can I change this macro so that, when pressed, it overwrites the file without prompting the user and waiting for their answer?
the system i'm creating involves many user ... some may know how to decode the system esp. on the startup ... if they click disable macro they can view, edit and delete important data in the system ... can somebody guide me on how to automatically enables macro on excel file on startup???
I've tried: - setting security to low - but got auto reset by administrator.
I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.
This is the path: [url]
So the command is this: Workbooks.Open [url]
Links are not actual links
So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.
I have a file that I save with a new version number each time I make major changes. The file name currently is: "Telephony Equipment Inventory v26 (Summary).xlsm". The "26" is the variable number. give me the vba code to ensure I open the file with the highest version number?
I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below) I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.
The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.
I am using this code to get me to a path then I click on the file I want and it opens it and makes it a .csv file. Then my code does stuff with it and closes it. My question is, do I even have to click on it? Can I get the macro to automatically open the file. Note the "NewestFolderInThePath" is a function that open me up to the "newest" created folder in the path. From there I double click file.
TheFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.*), *.*", , "Open Balance Sheet File FRPMBSDTL") If TheFile = "False" Then continue = MsgBox("Do you want to Continue to IS Download?", _................
I need a little assistance opening a Word file via an Excel macro. The two files are linked and upon opening, the Word file asks if the links should be updated. I need this to automatically be "Yes" everytime the file is opened.
I use various spreadsheets which use the EOmonth function. The reason for this is that I have a variable start month and then move out for a set period and this is a very easy way of doing this. My only problem is that you have to have the Analysis ToolPak add-in selected, so when you send to other people, it doesn't work. I have use a bit of code to turn this on, but if the disable macros is selected than this doesn't work.
I am preparing a simple document for employees to use that requires viewing two sheets simultaneously.
To make it user friendly I would like, if possible, to save it so that when opening the file, the two sheets open side by side without the user having to open the new window and juggle with window sizes etc.
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 ActiveSheet.PivotTables(iP).RefreshTable Next 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.
I would like to be able to automatically minimize the Excel 2007 ribbon on opening a particular workbook. My preference is to be able to apply that minimization to certain worksheets only, but if that's not possible then minimizing the ribbons on all sheets in the workbook will be ok.
Will I also need a BeforeClose code as well to reinstate the ribbon so that it is visible when opening subsequent workbooks?
I have a question concerning Macros and the Disable/Enable prompt. My boss has a spreadsheet which has been used for years and he recently wanted to and did remove the macros from the spreadsheet (they were no longer necessary), but the disable/enable prompt still appears when the spreadsheet is opened. I replicated this in a test spreadsheet with a simple insert line macro and received the same results. Is there a way to remove the macros and the disable/enable prompt once they are removed? I know about setting the security to low to not see the prompt, but I would think that once the macros are deleted, the prompt should not appear any more.
I am trying to educate myself in the wonders of Excel (2003) and an struggling somewhat.I have a small project loosely based on a shops stock control and have attached a copy of the workbook -
The user normally only has access to columns B, C and E due to the others being locked and the sheet protected.I would like the sheet to be automatically sorted based on column E each time the workbook is opened.I then need to automatically delete a row once an item in column B has been removed (made blank)
