Stop Email Defaulting

Jul 11, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of email addresses. If I click in the cell that contains the email address it automatically launches my email software and this is about to drive me nuts. Is there a way to stop Excel from automatically launching the email program.

I work in a college and I use this list to send out information to the students I work with. I select the student I need, then I copy and paste their email addresses to my email program. Sometimes I need to update their address or I may have entered it wrong.
When I click on the address cell, it automaically opens my email program or if the program is already open, it starts a new email to the student. I guess this could also be in my email program and if so, is there a way in Excel to make this just look like text and no an email address. It appears that the minute you put an @ symbol in something it automatically becomes an email address. Could that default be turned off.

Defaulting A Cell To A AM PM Time Designation

Sep 21, 2009

Filling out time sheets and the first number i'll put in will always fall in the AM. and the second number i fill in will always be a time in the PM.

What i want is to be able to just put a 8 in the cell and have it default to 8:00 AM then the next cell to place just a 5 and have it defautl to 5:00 PM.

When typing in 500 of these cutting out the extra 3 key strokes a cell could save me a lot of time. Would be a lot simpler to type in 8 rather than having to type in 8:00 AM.

I am on a Mac running OS 10.4.11. Whenever I launch Excel 2008, I have to go to Preferences and set Calculation to automatic.

Different Fonts In Chart Legend

Jan 15, 2007

I have a chart graphing different series, which includes a legend to label each series. The labels are linked to particular cells in the worksheet.

Most of the chart has Arial font formatting, but I need to change the formatting of a few characters in the legend:

I know that i can change the formatting of the whole legend, and even different entries in the legend. Is it possible to change the font of just a couple of characters in one legend entry?

Elements I need to change are:
Font type (eg from arial to symbol)
Size (varying from 8 to 14)
Bolding etc.

Maximum Number Of Fonts Per Doc?

Apr 24, 2007

I am using Excel 2003 and have a spreadsheet that lists 1521 fonts. I am using VBA and looping through the list of font names in column 1 and want to put an example of the font in column 2. I am trapping for error 1004 and using Resume Next. This works fine for 480 lines and then it just stops working. No error message or anything. The only thing I could think of is there might be a maximum number of fonts allowed per spreadsheete, but I would have though I would get an error.

No More New Fonts May Be Applied To This Worksheet

May 10, 2007

I have a very simple workbook in Excel 2000 with one page containing all my data which I update on a daily basis. Some of the data is linked to another workbook so that it updates each time I open it. Then I have 12 tabs, one worksheet for each month of the year with 10 simple graphs on each worksheet.

As you can see, it is a very simple worksheet. Each month, I copy and paste the graphs from the previous month into the current month and simply alter the Source Data in the graph to gather the current month's data. At the start of this month, it allowed me to copy and paste, but when I tried to alter the Source Data to the current month, I got a window on screen with a yellow triangle containing an exclamation mark and the words "No new fonts may be applied to this worksheet". If I click the OK button or the cross, it responds but the whole programme is locked. The only way I can get out is to give the 3 fingered salute and close Excel down.

No More New Fonts May Be Applied In This Workbook

Oct 10, 2007

I have a workbook with 33 worksheets and more than 150 charts. Now, when I right-click on a chart to access "Source Data" for example, I get a message saying "No more new fonts may be applied in this workbook". Then I have to click "OK" about a dozen times before I get access to the dialog box. Curiously, it happens for some charts and not for some others.

Fill Combobox With All Available Fonts

Jun 17, 2008

I am trying to find a quicker way to populate a ComboBox with every possible font available to the user on their particular computer in a manner other than simply using a ton of .AddItem statements.

Is it at all possible to get a user created ComboBox to essentially function the same way that the ComboBox for selecting font works normally? Or is it necessary to go through and add the statements myself?

I am creating a interface to specify default settings, one of which is font.

(Form TextBox) Multiple Fonts

Jan 4, 2010

I need to use two types of fonts to not only display a string of characters in a textbox but also past to a cell as viewed in the textbox.

An example string:


The above string in Arial font would look like this:


I am simulating a GD&T instruction (Geometric Deimensioning and Tolerancing).

My dilema stems from the first character "[" and the last character "]".
I use both of these characters to open an instruction and close the instruction (as if all characters are surrounded by a rectangle).

What I cant figure out is how to isolate the first "[" and the last "]" (They will always be the first and last characters of an unknown string length). The first "[" would be an "Arial font" and the last would be an "Arial font" everything in between is another font (in this case Verisurf).
See attached example jpg file.

Verisurf uses both "[" and "]" as alternate characters. I only need to capture the first and last character if: 1. The first is a "[" and or the last is a "]". They will never be vice~versa.

Format Fonts Based On Date

Aug 14, 2006

In the attached excel sheet you can find 2 subheadings named Safety and Waiting. Like this i have many sub headings in my excel sheets. Each sub heading contains some rows. The below is the code i used to change the Font color based on the date values.

Every thing works fine. My requirement is if any rows added under subheading "Safety" then i want to run the loop from 1 st row to last row under this subheading which will change the color based on the given date.

How to identify under which subheading the row is added and which is first row and which is last row.

Sub CycleThrough()
Dim Counter As Integer
If ActiveCell.Column = 3 And ActiveCell.Row >= 3 And ActiveCell.Row <= 8 Then
For Counter = 3 To 8
If IsDate(Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Value) = True Then
If Date - Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Value >= 100 Then
Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Font.Color = 255
ElseIf (Date - Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Value >= 70) And (Date - Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Value <= 100) Then
Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Font.Color = 82400
ElseIf Date - Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Counter, 3).Value < 70 Then.......................................

Excel 2007 :: Adding Characters In A Cell With Various Fonts

Jun 18, 2013

My group is putting "marks" in Excel (2007) work papers & sometimes they may want to add additional marks to those previously added in a selected cell. What I have below actually works, but I just got my VBA book last week & there has to be a better way.

Specifically, I've saved the "target" off in the same worksheet (That can't be good.) and delete it when I'm done writing it back. Can I save the original characters virtually, or to the personal.xlsb.

Sub addMarkInCELL()
Dim charCount As Integer
Dim charStart As Integer
Dim rngTarget As String
charCount = ActiveCell.Characters.Count
