How is code or functions kept unique to a workbook? for instance i create a few toolbars that are relevant to "work book 1", however when i open another workbook "2" the toolbars do not function properly or are removed by the opening/closing of the work book, similarly other macros seem to struggle with more than one workbbok open at a time.

Copy Workbook Containing Code Without Macros

Sep 10, 2006

In a workbook with several worksheets i would like (as part of a backup function) make a copy of one of the worksheets.

The code of the complete project is distributed over a module (module1) and several Microsoft excel objects ("thisWorkbook", but also in a number of the worksheets (e.g. in "sheet3 (Risk Management Plan)").

The backup copy of the worksheet (in this example also containing e.g. the Microsoft excel object "sheet6 (Backup of Risk Management Plan)" should be free of any macro code. this to avoid unintended problems by inexperienced users, but also to keep the file size limited.

Probably it would be possible to copy the worksheet without of copying also the code. Or it would be possible to strip the code only from this particular worksheet without influencing any other code, forms, ... . Or, perhaps, there would even a totally different approach.

I use Windows XP pro Sp2, and Excel 2000 Sp3.

Copy Macros From Workbook To Workbook

Mar 26, 2009

I have several workbooks that contain the same worksheets. The worksheets within the several workbooks are structurally the same but have a different number of elements within the structure of the worksheets. I've written Macros that accommodate the difference in the number of elements in the worksheets and will perform the same appropriate tasks within all workbooks.

I use one of the workbooks for development and as I make changes in the Macros within this development workbook, I wish to update all the macros in the other workbooks.

I've been Exporting and Importing to accomplish the update. Is there a utility available that will accomplish this task? Something like "Copy all Modules from "Workbook1.xls"

Make New Copy Of Entire Workbook Macro

Mar 1, 2010

I've created an Excel 2007 workbook with about a dozen worksheets that are full of formulas and links to other workbooks, as well as conditional formatting that isn't backwardly compatible with Excel 2003. However, many people who want to see this workbook are still on Excel 2003. I need to recreate an Excel 2003 compatible workbook with the appearance and formatting of the original and have all the formulas and links converted to values. So, the final product will "look" just like the original without the conditional formatting, links or formulas. It will just have the look, colors and values displayed for all cells.

Essentially, I want a macro that will copy however many worksheets (1-n) are in an Excel 2007 workbook to a new Excel 2003 workbook. I'd like the worksheets to retain their label names as well.

Save Copy Of Open Workbook And Make PDF For Archive

Pdf part is working fine, but with second part just can't find right option.

Pdf part

Private Sub Workbook_AfterSave(ByVal Success As Boolean)
Dim Name As String
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
Name = ThisWorkbook.Path & "PDF Archive" & ActiveSheet.Range("F6") & " Invoice " & ActiveSheet.Range("B11")


Excel part

Make Macros Generic & Easily Distributable

Aug 23, 2007

I am looking to create a macro that will edit the code of another macro that is already setup. Basically, I have a macro that will open and close every file that has data linked to this workbook. Because of the 255 character limitation of text in Excel, I have a simple macro to open/close each so it will bring over any additional characters past 255. Now, this macro is saved to a master file, and each month we do a save as, and start a new period on it. The files we open/close are named C:/data/RCC/FY2007/10543 - ifi/10543 CurrentMonth Rec.xls

Is there a way to make a macro, that will do a simple find -- replace in the VBA code of the original sheet, so that it looks for the right files. So, with the above example, I would replace "CurrentMonth" with whatever I enter into an inputbox (say AUG for August).

And if you have a moment, is there a way to make two input boxes, one to denote the Fiscal Year (in the file path it is the entry that is FY2007) and CurrentMonth, so that if it is the new fiscal month then it will create a new directory and save in that new location? So when it is FY 2008, I would do a save as C:/data/RCC/FY2008/10543 - ifi/10543 CurrentMonth Rec.xls?

Copy/paste Macros Will Not Copy Filtered Items

Sep 25, 2009

The following sub will look in the file ("FY09 SOF"), in column "A", search for the strings that begin with "2109", "3009", or ends in "-1", and copy the entire row. It will then paste these in the file ("FY09 PR Log Blank").

I have found that in the file ("FY09 SOF"), if things are filtered in any row, it will not copy those necessary items.

The data filter is on row 13 of each sheet. Is there a way of fixing this? (i.e. having the macros select "all" on the filter before copying the sheet? There are 60 sheets so a macros will be necessary.

Sub get_data()
Dim wb As Workbook, wbDest As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet, wsDest As Worksheet
Dim lngCalc As Long
Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim FoundCell As Range

Set wb = Workbooks("FY09 SOF")
Set wbDest = Workbooks("FY09 PR Log Blank")
Set wsDest = wbDest.Worksheets("Paste all here, then sort")

With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False
lngCalc = .Calculation
.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
End With

Workbook Protection In Macros

Oct 27, 2006

In addition to the code below that hides data if macros not enabled, prevents copy and cut (I know its still possible) I would like to as well as protect the sheets (which works fine) also protect the workbook to prevent moves etc. Unfortunately while the protection may be easily applied, the veryhidden bit to ensure macros are selected then conks out. Does anyone out there know of a way where say the workbook protection may remain and at the same time allow the veryhidden etc bits do their stuff as normal as if the workbook protection was off?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave _
(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
If Cancel = True Or bIsClosing = False Then Run "HideAll"
If SaveAsUI = True Then Cancel = True

End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
Dim oCtrl As Office.CommandBarControl
'Disable all Cut menus
For Each oCtrl In Application. CommandBars.FindControls(ID:=21)
oCtrl.Enabled = False

Running Macros From A Separate Workbook

Jun 9, 2008

Our department receives weekly and fortnighly updated workbooks from a number of different departments. Each workbook contains 10s of worksheets. Our department analyzes the data and generates reports from those worksheets.

I have developed a few macros to automate the report generation for making the computing of my colleagues easier.

Now, the problem is that all the macros are developed behind individual sheets and some modules. For this reason, my colleagues have to copy each updated sheet and paste over the older ones individually, each and every time. It is really quite time-consuming task - deleting older data from all the worksheets and then copying fresh data on each of them, one by one.

They want to make their life easier by just replacing the entire workbooks with the new ones and still want the macros functioning, as usual.

My concern is how I can put all the code in a separate workbook and how to reference data from the other workbook.

Workbook To Open Only If Macros Are Enabled

Mar 29, 2009

I have created an Excel Workbook and this Workbook has a VBA code that enforces an expiry date of the workbook (TimeBomb from So, if the expiry date has passed, the workbook will not open. But since it is VBA related, the expiry date will work only if one has enabled macros. If macros are disabled, the workbook will open regardless of the date.

So, is there a way for Excel to check if macros are enabled? and is there a way for Excel not to open the workbook, if the macros are disabled?

Workbook Macros For New Numbers On Each Sheet

Oct 21, 2009

I've used excel for awhile now but never really tapped into the tough stuff. I'm trying to create a workbook for work for Purchase Orders. I figured excel would be workable. The big thing I need is that for each worksheet that is created, I need it to automatically have the next P.O. number on the sheet. I have no idea if that is possible though. Each worksheet will be the same style but the P.O. would automatically change from say 105 to 106 when the new sheet is made. I was hoping maybe the date could automatically be entered as well. That doesn't have to happen but it could be helpful. Working with Excel 2003.

Opening Workbook Without Macros But Timing Out?

Jun 3, 2012

I'm trying to open a workbook that someone sends me once a week, and suddenly it's timing out (hourglass) and not opening.

I know for a fact that he put in some formulas (but no macros) that reference a file only he has access to.

And, auto calculation, he leaves on.

I see the file open on one of the 3 sheets in it, but the hourglass never goes away, and when I Ctrl Alt Del, it says Excel is Not Responding.

Is there any way I can get this file to open so that I can fix it or transfer the raw data to a new workbook?

Open Workbook, Disable Macros

Apr 22, 2006

Is it possible to open a workbook via vba, but disable the macros? I know this sounds strange, but the workbook is coded to prevent users from saving it, and the only way to save it is to either open it with macros disabled or change the variable OKtoSave to true, but the variable is global only to the sheet and I can't find a way to change it through a macro written in my personal.xls workbook.
