Sendkeys Macro Will Not Start With Keyboard Shortcut

Aug 18, 2014

However, I have not been able to find a solution. I created 2 macros that work using the alt+F8 and enter option as well as the run from the macros menu method. Whenever I try to use the keyboard short cut eg. Ctrl+e it will either not do anything or pause and then select every cell. The codes are below:

Sub Macro5()
' Macro5 Macro


I have tried multiple letter options and have also tried many macros in a new workbook and I cannot get it to run with the keyboard shortcut.

Create New File In Windows

Jun 10, 2009

I am looking for the best way to create a new file in windows. I am just looking to create a save filename template. After I run a macro, a graph is created and printed to pdf. I want this macro to create a filename, so that when the save as dialog box opens, I just have to doubleclick the existing filename. Then I save the excel workbook as another.

For example, after I run the macro, the pdf printer will open up a save as dialog to c: emp. I want to have this macro create two files there, one DaveGraph.PDF and one DaveExcel.xls. They really won't be files, just names. They can be 0kb files. I want it to be as efficient as possible. I know I could create a new workbook and save it there with the correct name, but isn't there an easier way?

Allow Items To Be Added To "cell" Shortcut Menu

May 19, 2007

I am using the following code to add an item to the right click " cell" shortcut menu.

I placed it in a Worksheet_Activate module in ThisWorkbook. I'm pretty sure the code is correct but it seems something is preventing the code from executing properly because no item is added to the menu. Is there some setting in a workbook that might prevent changes to the right click menu from being made? How can I get this code to execute properly?

'Set NewItem = CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add
'With NewItem
' .Caption = "MACRO1"
' .OnAction = "MACRO1"
' .BeginGroup = True
'End With

Create Instance Of Microsoft Windows Journal

Feb 14, 2008

1) When using the command below, how can I determine what the "XYZ" component could be. I see plenty of examples of it being used to start a MS Word session or Powerpoint but I'd really like to see a definitive list.

At the moment, I'm not even sure what to type into Google that describes this part of the command's argument.

Set target = CreateObject("XYZ.Application")

2) I'm just a frightened noob on this site and I tried to follow the advice on bumping my previous post on this subject, having altered my plea. All I got was a telling-off for being a double-poster and my old old thread sat where it was despite my 'Bump' command. Do you have to have at least one reply before your thread moves?

Create A Shortcut To A File, Not Hyperlink

Jul 5, 2006

How can I change the text color within a cell when I am using a concatenation formula? I have the following formula;

=" Total Bonus Earned ("&TEXT(A2/VLOOKUP($A$1,PR_DB,2,False),"#0.0%")&" of 2006 Earnings):"

In the text function portion I would like to format the result in red. An example of the result of my formula I am seeking is as follows; Total Bonus Earned (10% of 2006 Earnings): Do I need to create a custom format and if so how do I call it up within the text function?

Anyway To Create Shortcut Icon To Open A Specific Worksheet?

Aug 17, 2009

Is there anyway to create a shortcut icon that I can place on my windows Desktop - That when launched will open a workbook to a specific worksheet/tab. Has to be a windows shortcut as the workbook is auto generated eachday and sent to me, so if I add vb code it will not matter as I will get a new workbook the next day thus wiping out the vb code.

The person who compiles it leaves it on a certain tab that I dont need, but is commonly used by other people - so I would like a shortcut to skip that worksheet and take me to the worksheet that I need to use.

Create Menu Options In The VBE

Apr 18, 2009

I have a workbook (VBE.xls) that creates menu options in the VBE when it opens.
Several of them modify the code in the active codepane.

When the codepane is in VBE.xls, everything gets reset and my macros don't run anymore. I have to re-run the macro (menu_setup()) that creates the menu options.
I don't think there is anything I can do about it resetting when I modify the project that created the menus.

Is there some way to have each macro re-run menu_setup() AFTER it has ended (after the reset has cleared everything)?

I've tried having each macro open the immediate window and paste in "menu_setup" then tried to use "sendkeys" command to execute it, but I can't seem to get it work.

Create Custom Menu Items For Add-in

Feb 15, 2010

I have created an Addin from one I found on this site which creates a menu on the CommandBar. On this menu I can add my Macros. The Menu is initially supposed to perform a delete function then an add, just in case the menu already exists on the CommandBar. It is also supposed to Uninstall the menu when you de-select the Addin. At the moment it doesn't seem to be doing either, as I have now got 5 CommandBar menu's all the same and I can't delete them?

This also creates a problem of when I add another macro, the menu on the CommandBar doesn't update with the addition?

I have attached the .xla file for you to look at and see where I'm going wrong.

Create Floating Toolbar (not Menu)

Jan 13, 2007

Need to code to create a custom floating menu which appears on opening the workbook. It works brilliantly, but I'd like to adapt it so that I can create a floating toolbar, which is fully expanded upon opening, where the button faces are plain text which I designate. Let's suppose the macros I want the buttons to trigger are called MacroA and MacroB, and that the text on the buttons should read "Do A" and "Do B".

Sub Create_Menu()
Dim MyBar As CommandBar
Dim MyPopup As CommandBarPopup
Dim MyButton As CommandBarButton
Delete_Menu 'make sure commandbar isn't already running
Set MyBar = CommandBars.Add( Name:="My Menu", _
Position:=msoBarFloating, temporary:=True)
With MyBar
.Top = 175
.Left = 850
Set MyPopup = .Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlPopup)
With MyPopup
.Caption = "My Tools" 'change to suit....................

Create A Custom Mask That Will Always Put A / At The Start Of Each Cell

Feb 19, 2010

how I can create a custom mask that will always put a / at the start of each cell in column C. So basically when I enter a number in, say 350, the mask will automatically put a / in front of it - /350 or even better /space350. The only issue is that the number will change in length a little, so not sure if this is a problem or not.

How To Create Excel Add-in With Custom Dropdown Menu For Other Users

Feb 12, 2013

I've written a ton of VB macros that do various things to a raw data sheet. I want now to create a custom menu (in the the menu ribbon bar at the top of the screen). I'd like this menu to be used to activate the various macros for whoever has my add-in.

I've found several examples on how to create an add-in, and creating custom menus, however they all for when someone opens a workbook with the code, and then they remove the custom menu when the workbook is closed. I would like my custom menu to stay on the users ribbon bar no matter what workbook they have open. The only time the custom menu should not appear is if the user removes the add-in.

Create Functional Dropdown Menu To Update Expiry Dates?

Jan 13, 2013

I am creating a very simple spreadsheet to manage my gym memberships. It basically has membership number, first name, last name, membership type (drop down box) start date and expiry date. I have put in conditional formatting so that the expiry date goes red when expired but i want to try and automate the inputting of the dates so for example.

If i select '1 week membership) from the drop down box in the membership type box it will firstly change the start date to the current date (i think this is using the NOW() function) and secodnly changes the expriry date to todays date plus 6 days. Ofcourse i want the expiry date to increase depending on the selection so if i select 1 month membership it would be now date plus 28 days.

I am stuck as to how i can do this and from internet tutorials have been told it requires macro as it cant be done any other way?

Using Command Button And VBA To Create Summary Reports Relative To Pull Down Menu?

Sep 16, 2012

See attached file - I would like to use the "Create Parts issue Report" Button to create worksheet titled "Parts Issue Report" based on the pulldown menu in cell B1 tab "Vehicle data" so each pulll down will generate a different "Parts Issue Report" when clicking the "Create Parts Issue Report" button. I think it needs to be a looping VBA to go thru the "Vehicle Data" rows and columns looking for the keywords "late" or past" as I only want a report created on that criteria. The output criteria I have label in the tab "Parts Issue Report" I can explain further if needed.

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.
