Custom Toolbar Button Setting Certain Template To Open

Sep 20, 2006

I created a custom toolbar button which works perfectly.

Because I needed to save each workbook as a specific workbook this is taken care of by the vb code.

I would like when the button is pressed for the original workbook template to be opened.

At this moment if I have a blank workbook or no workbook open and I press the button the programme opens a version of the workbook but not the template version how do I point Excel at the templates.

Custom Transferable Toolbar Of Custom Functions

Sep 2, 2008

I want to be able to create a range of VBA userforms to quickly perform long tedious tasks. I want these userforms to be accessed from a nice tidy toolbar.

I have done this and it looks nice and works well. What I would like to be able to do is have my custom toolbar of userform controlled functions be transferable so that if someone else wants my toolbar and attached functions they can install it easily much the same way you can do with an add in.

Is this sort of thing possible or does it require them to manually install all my userforms, modules and toolbar? If it is possible what sort of things should I be looking at?

Custom Toolbar Creation

Jan 11, 2007

I'm preparing a model which has a few macros built-in. Let's call them Macro A, B, C etc. I want to trigger them via buttons on a custom toolbar (no problem) which a recipient of the model, on another PC, will be able to see (problem).

It was suggested to me that in Customize mode I can right click the custom toolbar and then click "Attach..." but this always causes Excel (2002) to freeze; I must then close Excel.

Someone else suggested that a better way is to have VBA code create the toolbar "on the fly" automatically when a recipient opens the spreadsheet. This is too advanced for me to write at the moment. Could someone give me a steer?

Disable Custom Toolbar On Any PC

Sep 25, 2007

I created a custom toolbar called "PAT" for users. It has 5 custom buttons-save, import,submit,close,help. I attached it to the toolbars as instructed at the site I need to keep the worksheet tabs showing so I cannot use the application.DisplayFullScreen = True. For each worksheet that the user will be viewing, i have the following

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Enabled = True
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Controls("Import").Enabled = False
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Controls("Submit").Enabled = False
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Controls("Save").Enabled = True
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Controls("Help").Enabled = True
Application.CommandBars("PAT").Controls("Close").Enabled = True
End Sub

ON my workbook activate code and workbook open code, I remove all native toolbars so only the one i created is showing, using Application.CommandBars("PAT").Enabled = True
On workbook deactivate I have the following.................

Toolbar Command Button As Toggle Button

Aug 13, 2008

I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.

.State = msobuttondown
.State = msobuttonup

Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.

Attaching A Custom Toolbar To Workbook

Apr 14, 2009

I have created a workbook and made a custom toolbar to perform the macro functions for the sheets in the workbook. Everything works great for me, but I want to attach the custom toolbar to the workbook so that whenever someone else pulls up the workbook they pull up the custom toolbar too.

I used the tools menu, clicked customize, toolbars, attach, selected the custom toolbar and clicked copy.

No toolbar appears.

I can select View, Toolbars, and select the custom toolbar, then the toolbar appears, but when I close the sheet the toolbar remains.

When someone else opens the sheet, the toolbar appears without any "buttons." It is an empty toolbar.

The help text isn't helping because the instructions for attaching a custom toolbar to a worksheet (tools/customize/toolbars/attach/copy) do not attach the toolbar to the workbook.

Can't Run Macros Off A Custom Toolbar Anymore

Oct 6, 2009

A couple years ago i made a giant spreadsheet and had 2 custom toolbars to run macros from to manipulate the sheet.

This year i re-did the sheet, meaning all my old data was replaced (it's a giant schedule basically).

However, the Macros in the custom toolbars stayed exactly the same and performed the same function and are directed to the exact same cells, rows, columns, etc..

But now when i hit the buttons on the custom toolbars to run my macros, i get the following message... all the time...

A document with the name "NHLsheet.xls" is already open. You cannot open two documents
with the same name, even if the documents are in different folders.
To open the second document, either close the document that's currently open, or rename one of the documents.

Trouble is, i have only 1 document open!
There's something in the macros that thinks i'm trying to open a new document but i'm clueless as to where or why.. they are very simple macros
that do not require the opening of any new workbooks..

All they do is point to another sheet within my open workbook, "NHLsheet", copy a particular row from that sheet, and paste it to a specific spot onto another sheet within my workbook, "NHLsheet".

Here is a sample:

Creating Custom Dropdown In Toolbar

Jun 6, 2007

I work with excel docs that have alot of sheets. I managed to create a vba form that has a listbox populated with the sheet names, that when clicked goes to the respective sheet. The problem is that when the form is open i cannot focus on the excel sheet - the form needs to be closed first.

1 ) Is it possible to make an excel vba form dockable (so it could be displayed on the right where help would be)


2) Would it be possible to create a drop down in the toolbar that would have the sheet names.

I think the latter is a cleaner solution (if possible).

Custom Toolbar Code Prompts To Save

Dec 21, 2006

I have added a toolbar to an excel application that the company uses. I need this toolbar only to be accessed to this application and not any time that you open excel. I have used the following

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.CommandBars("Rithin-Toolbar2006").Enabled = True
Application.CommandBars("Rithin-Toolbar2006").Visible = True
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_close()
Application.CommandBars("Rithin-Toolbar2006").Enabled = False
Application.CommandBars("Rithin-Toolbar2006").Visible = False
End Sub

This works but only If I accept yes when it prompts me to save changes to the workbook. Each time I open the workbook and close it, it prompts me to save changes to the workbook. I dont want to force a save on the workbook, meaning have code that will save the workbook before closing. I want it such that if the user opens the workbook, and makes no changes, he/she should just close it with no questions asked.

Custom Toolbar Orientation. Horizontal & Vertical

Oct 13, 2007

How do you control the orientation of a floating toolbar? The code below puts the elements horizontally, while I'd like to make the toobar have a vertical format (one macro per line). I'd also be interested if there's a way to do sub-menus to organize the toolbar buttons better. how to revise the code below, and/or a pointer to where I can read about this. I tried searching google and this forum to no avail.

Option Explicit
Public Const ToolBarName As String = "My Toolbar"
Sub Auto_Open()
Call CreateMenubar
End Sub
Sub Auto_Close()
Call RemoveMenubar
End Sub
Sub RemoveMenubar()
On Error Resume Next
On Error Goto 0
End Sub
Sub CreateMenubar()......................

Mar 11, 2008

I am trying to write a formula whether it be in VBA or a Macro that will do the following.

In cell A7 and A10 there are validation boxes that drop down with a list of items that can be selected.

We want the user to be able to add multiple items under each month but keep the list to only what is needed. Therefor the function I am trying to get is once cell A7 has a selction or isnot blank or is greater than 0 we want to add a line directly below it with all the same functionality as line 7. Everything else will shift down and maintain the same functionality.

I have a attached a sample workbook... Can this be done

Custom Floating Toolbar Created - Icon And Size Questions Remain

Oct 16, 2008

I have created a custom floating toolbar that works perfect (thanks to all the reading on here!). My workbook is a stand alone estimating tool that many users will have a copy of.

I have two things I want to do yet but I cant find it on here.

1) My buttons on my toolbar - I want to have custom icons. I can do this temporarily but when I exit my worksheet and re-open they are lost. Is there anyway to save a custom icon. I am willing to add it to the icon list if necessary and then when users open the workbook copy the custom icons onto their computer. But I am not sure how/where I could do this.

Worse case, can I color my button text?

2) When my toolbar appears, it is wide, all buttons are going left to right. I want the size to be small width so the toolbar buttons are on top of each other. Any thoughts? I tried adding a .width but it didnt work.
