At my company we need to print our workbooks containing 3 to 24 worksheets. The first page should be printed on different paper than the other pages. From various forums I gathered that it's not possible to set the papertray using vba. Those forums suggest 3 things: 1. Windows Api functions (don't work at our company(security)), 2. SendKeys (don't work because of different printers, office versions and future-proofness) and 3.
Define printerdrivers per tray.
This last I did, so there are printerdrivers for tray3 and tray4.
With the following code I try to print the workbook:
Public Sub printSheets(strP1 As String, strP2 As String) Dim curPrinter As String, firstPage As Worksheet, otherSheet As Worksheet, x As Integer Set firstPage = Application. ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1) curPrinter = Application.ActivePrinter
The problem: The sheets are sent to the printers specified as strP1 and strP2, but the tray-settings from these printers are "overruled" by Excel; they are printed from the papertray that was the default of the printer when Excel was started.
Also, using the default printer dialog from Excel has the same problem; when the (windows-)default printer is Tray3 then all the pages come from there, even when printer Tray4 is selected as the printer. In Word or Acrobat etc the prints come from the right tray.
I am trying to copy the print settings(including the headers and footers) for one excel worksheet to another. I have found the following hint on internet and it works fine for copying the print setting(including the head/foot) but it is also grouping the worksheets. Click on the tab of the worksheet you want to copy. Then hold down the Shift or Ctrl key and click on the tab of the worksheet where you want the settings and click on File, Page Setup and OK. How can I just copy the print setting without grouping the worksheets?
I am having trouble disabling the "Preview" button when calling Application.Dialogs(xldialogprint) in XL2003. I have an xlSheetVeryHidden worksheet containing a form which is made visible programatically when the user wishes to print a copy (code below). I want the user to be able to have access to the functionality of the xlDialogPrint dialog (i.e. select desired print destination, number of copies, pages per sheet etc.) but I also want to prevent them modifying the page setup of the protected worksheet by initiating a preview from the print dialog.
Private Sub btnPrintReturnForm_Click()
wbkRUSC.Unprotect sysPass 'unprotect workbook to enable changes to sheet visibility ' (sysPass is project constant string containing password)
shtStaffForm.Visible = xlSheetVisible 'make staff form visible
shtCalc.Visible = xlSheetVeryHidden 'hide main calculator in case user gets smart and hits..............................
Is there a way to force a print RANGE, and add settings such as margins, and print to range to 1 page wide and 1 page tall? Can this be set with VBA? I tried to make a marcro but it crashes. This is for Excel 2002.
I currently have a template that I have made and all the info and everything is fine on it, but the problem is with printing. Every time I go to print it wants to print out 100 copies of the same thing. I tried editing the original template by printing 1 copy then saving the template, but it still wants to print 100 copies with the next try. how to customize what the print settings are for the template and make them stay permanent with the template?
Is it possible to set the same print area and print settings i.e. Landscape and 1 page tall by 2 pages wide, across all worksheets in an excel file? I have a file with 365 worksheets. They all have the exact same layout and need to be printed off daily. I can set the print settings every day manually but was wondering if there is an easy way to do them all in one go?
I am creating a spreadsheet on a British-based system using the d/m/y date system as default, but I am unfortunately entering data using the american m/d/y system and would like to change the default to the american system.
When I place a text box in Excel 2010, the default is for everything to be locked (Box is locked AND text is locked). I want to change the default setting so that when I start Excel fresh, anytime I place a text box the "LOCK TEXT" box is UNCHECKED.
There's a place where you can select "Set as default text box") after you make the changes, but it's not sticking (even in the same document without closing. IE, I make the changes to a text box, then click the option that says "Set as default text box", place a NEW text box immediately in the same document but the text is still locked.
My office recently upgraded to Office 2010 and we would like (in the accounting department that I work in) to change the default number formating in a blank sheet to Number, 0 Decimals, using seperators, from the current default of general format number.
I have looked for the Book.xltx file to replace but can't see it any where.
I am having trouble getting Excel 2007 on my work computer to save as .xlsx by default.
I have opened the Office Button > Excel Options > Save > Save files in this format and selected "Excel Workbook (*.xlsx)," and if I save as before closing Excel then it works perfect and saves the file as .xlsx. However if I close Excel, re-open it later and save a new file the default "Save as type:" is "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)" and if I open the save options again the "Save files in this format" option is reverted back to "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)."
I have finally overcome the [Compatibility Mode] issue by saving a file named "Book.xltx" (not "Book1.xltx") in the two default locations "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12XLSTART" and "D:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataMicrosoftExcelXLSTART" (we use the D: drive at work for personal files). I thought this would solve the save as issue but it hasn't. I have also changed the "Save files in this format" before saving the .xltx files in the locations to apply the settings to those specific files but that hasn't worked.
It is on my work computer so I am limited in what settings I can change because they have them pretty well locked down.
I often use the same file/pivot table for both month and weekly reporting. In my source data my field headers show 1,2,3,4..etc. This way I can use for month or weekly. But I often change the "Custom" name on the Field Value Settings to something more descriptive like "Jan" or "Week1"
The problem is that each time I update the the "Custom" name the Pivot Table auto refreshes and it takes forever to re-label all the columns.
Is there a way to suppress this refresh when updating the Custom Field Name?
I have a spreadsheet with 28 visible tabs. When I select all tabs and print, I get 3 cover (or banner) pages...I like having the first banner page, but the other two are in the middle of my report. I assume excel is sending 3 print jobs and I'm not sure why.
I've seen a couple of posts regarding this issue when using VBA, but I'm not using VBA...just selecting all the sheets and sending a single print job, but get 3 banner pages.
Since upgrading to Windows 2007 (I was already using Excel 2007) I am having issues with the content in the cells on the worksheet not appearing the same on Print Preview and when I print. On the worksheet the cell show to be at the best fit both horizontally and vertically. When I look at the contents under print preview, the contents are squashed from the top and cut off from the left. This happens whether I have the format in Top or Central align and is even worse if I use Bottom align. It is also somewhat worse if I have thickened boarders.
I just converted from Excel 2003 to 2007 and print previewed a worksheet and find a tiny image with a small portion of the print area. When I look at the sheet in page break preview mode, I see the 8.5 x 11 sheet broken up into approx 77 smaller sheets. When I try to move the page breaks to include the whole sheet it states the change cannot be made as it will result in an image less than 10%. I have attached two images - the first shows the print preview I get, and the second show the multiple pages when I view in page break.
I have set up a spreadsheet template that automatically populates specific values through the spreadsheet based on what the value of cell "A1" is. I want to run through 224 potential values in cell A1 and print out the worksheet after each potential value.
My thought on how to approach it is to write a macro that: 1. Selects the next item from the drop down box in cell A1 2. Prints the page (using default print settings) 3. Loops
But I don't know what the code would be. Cell A1 also does not need to be a drop down box, as long as it incrementally runs through all 224 listed values and prints after each one.
Excel 2007 - need to adjust protected view settings but the protected view tab is missing from my Trust Centre settings - have the following tabs - trusted publisher / location, add-ins, activeX, macro, message bar, external content and privacy options. Document is a revenue authority download and without being able to adjust the protected view settings, can't input data.
What I have is a large number of sheets in a workbook (26 to be exact). Each of these sheets has one specific named range. The file itself is quite large so I would like to print these ranges to a single PDF file. I did my best to search for this topic in the forums and while I did find some macros that were close, there was some sort of piece of code missing. Also, will how I list the named ranges determine the order of how they will show up in the PDF File?
I'm creating an excel spreadsheet that will be sent out to a few users to enter data into. In this spreadsheet, multiple columns contain drop down lists created using the Data Validation tool. The lists are referencing named ranges on a second worksheet.
In these drop down lists are terms that consists of one or two words. What I'm trying to do is when a user goes to select an option from the drop down list, I want the matching one letter code to be entered into the cell instead. For example, Column AK has drop down list with following options:
Good Moderate Poor
When a user selects one of the options, I want one the following respective letter to appear instead......
This is probably a VBA thing, but there might be a simpler solution. Either would be grand!
Basically, I have a four sheet workbook that needs to be printed out in its entirety (no problem doing that ); however, I would like the final sheet (called "Room Data") to be printed, let's say ten times.
So basically I'd get a single print of the first three sheets and ten of the "Room Data".
Any ideas on how to do this without having to manually print the final sheet multiple times or creating ten identical sheets in the workbook?
I have a workbook that has a single sheet in it, in cell G2 I want to insert a page number where if I print of multiple copies on the first sheet it will say 1, the second 2, the third 3 and so on and so forth.
I got a workbook with one active sheet. There are 6 colums and 55 rows. I want to creat a macro or formula to automatically print each individual row on a single sheet of paper. i will only need the line with a specific value printed i.e only print value more then 5
