I have been attempting to enable the developer tab in Excel 2013, and have been unable to do so. When I check the box for the Developer tab, then click OK, the ribbon flickers, as if the tab is being added, but then the tab does not appear. When I go back to customize the ribbon, the check for the Developer tab is again not checked. I have also tried to move things around to different tabs and none of the changes stick.
I've been trying to research how to do this for a while now and still can't figure it out. My impression is that this is fairly straightforward in Excel 2010 since the menus and ribbons are easily customizable but not so in Excel 2007.
So far I can get macro shown as a button in the Quick Access Toolbar. But the issue is that I can't organize them or customize the icons.
I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.
On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells
On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells
D4 & D5 E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42
It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead
I have prepared an excel workbook with macros for a bill. In that I have protected the workbook (selected window also) after reduced the menu bar to just ribbon (HOME, INSERT,PAGELAYOUT,.......), so that I would get enough space. I have send it to my friends as WinRaR file. But when they open in their computer the sheet is not getting enough space to display the entire page as normally no body used to minimize the ribbon and formula bar. This is making lot of inconvenience. I tried one macro but it not recording the actions on ribbon.
I would like to add a command to my macro that will do one simple step: Refresh all FDS Codes
FDS I believe is short for FactSet Data Series. FactSet is an add-in for excel we use at work. The FactSet menu button is in my ribbon and when I choose that add-in, there are a number of actions I can execute. One is to refresh all FDS which is to refresh all cells with formulas that pull in data from our FactSet database.
I tried recording this action but VBA does not show any key strokes from those steps so I think I just experienced one of the many shortfalls of recording macros. Is there a way to write the macro to execute this action? I would think since I am using a FactSet add-in, it would be possible but I don't know where to begin.
Is it possible to create 1 macro which will execute multiple macros on different sheets?
I have approx. 12 macros that I can run in order, and I would like to create 1 button on the first sheet of the workbook to execute all 12 macros, which are contained on various other sheets. Is this possible?
When I attempted to do this, the master macro ran an odd function on my first sheet.
Below is some code that I found on the internet some while ago. When Excel opens this code runs which brings up a message box prompting a user to select an option. If no option is selected within 15 seconds then the macro runs, else it depends on the selection entered.
The problem that I am experiencing is that sometimes when the user does not select an option the macro does not execute after the coded 15 seconds. The message box just sticks around until a selection is made.
Most of the time it works just fine... some of the time it doesn't. The problem would appear to have gotten worse since upgrading to Excel 2010.
So, my question is either:
1. Why the code does not execute as expected each time Excel is opened? 2. Is there a better / more robust way of executing the below code without using "shell"?
Is it true that I have to enable macro and choose to trust access to the VBA project object model in order to create and run macros? It seems there is some security risk associated with making the workbook as macro enabled. What makes the commands run from the ribbon security free? Is it true that we can work around the macro security concern by creating a command button to the ribbon and run the macro from the command button? If yes, how come I could not find any discussion of creating the command buttons? I am using Excel 2007.
I have a pretty developed add-in I've created for use at work. It has 3 full custom ribbon tabs worth of buttons and boxes and other features that run all of the macros in the project. Everyone loves it. The only problem is, its only used when we work with customer statement excel files. When using Excel for other tasks it is annoying to have 3 extra, essentially useless tabs taking up space on the ribbon.
Is it possible to create a button and stick it on, say the Data tab, that will "Start" the add-in and make the 3 custom tabs visible? Ideally there would also be a button to "Close" the add-in or hide the extra tabs until they're needed as well, but how to customize for my specific needs.
I have a workbook that has a userform with some simple code to translate formulas from .FormulaLocal to .Formula, and back.
I use that workbook a lot to translate formulas I find on here to something my German XL2007 will understand. I thought it would be neat, as well as giving me the opportunity to learn something new, to have that functionality as an add-in, rather than having the workbook open all the time. It is easy enough to save the wb as an add-in, and I can see it in my add-in list, install or un-install it. What i can't figure out is how to put a button on the xl07 ribbon when the add in is installed so i can access it.
I'm making a Userform for commands I use a lot, like concatenation and highlighting cells. I placed a command button on the sheet that pops up whenever I open Excel. It's a bit awkward to have it on the sheet. Is there a way to place the button on the ribbon to get it out of the way? (I'm on an intermediary level with VBA
Another alternative would be to make a hide button on the userform, I guess. Once it disappears though I'd probably need another button to call it up again.
I have executed this macro from this spreadsheet many times but today, after I execute the macro, the box increased in size. I repositioned it on the page, resized it and re-executed. Now it is decreasing the font size within the button each time I execute. It executed just fine yesterday. I assume it's some setting in excel because I've tried another spreadsheet and am seeing the same result.
I have utilized the search button here, but alas haven't found exactly what I am looking for. I have run into a wall and cannot seem to scale it. I am running excel 2000 and need some assistance with creating a search macro. I have a simple spreadsheet created with 3 columns and 500 rows. Column A is name, B is a given # and C is employee status. What I need the macro to do is once a user enters the employee #, it highlights and takes the user to the corresponding name (Column A). I apologize for asking a "novice" question, but i have very little experience in this side of excel.
I have an excel tool I am adapting to 2010 from 2003. It imports another tool which has been created elsewhere in my company and it is protected so I cannot alter it. This tool that I cannot change creates its own custom toolbar the "old fashioned" way so it dumps into the add-in tab on the ribbon. My tool opens this corporate tool and changes some items on the toolbar (enters values in a text box) and then imports data from it. However in run-time the custom toolbar never appears. Is there a way to refresh the ribbon in run-time after opening the file so I can then access the toolbar items?
I have the code that accompanies the attached spreadsheet model that locks the copy, paste, cut, double click and so on, with the right mouse button and shortcut keys, however, the toolbar excel these functions still remain active. How well I block access to the toolbar.
Sub test2col() Sheets("Sheet6").Cells.ClearContents Sheets("Sheet6").Range("A:B").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A:B").Value Sheets("Sheet6").Range("D").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C").Value End Sub It said
Sheets("Sheet6").Range("D").Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C").Value End Sub has error.
Does a Sub not support to use Range more than one time? If so, do I need to write many Sub to do it?
I currently have an excel workbook (2010) in which I created a custom ribbon and assigned several different macros to the buttons.
Long story short, I will be saving several variations of this workbook every so often when I get new data.
The problem is that if I change the name of the file (Save as or Rename), the custom ribbon buttons no longer work. When I assigned the macros to the ribbon buttons, the macros were absolutely assigned.
Is it possible to assign relative macros to custom ribbons?
From research I have done, it appears that custom ribbons cannot be created using VBA. Is this still true?
