I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below) I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.
The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.
I have a workbook that has a macro that needs to run before it is closed. I have a button on my sheet that runs that macro and then closes the sheet. Is there a way that I can disable the "X" at the top right hand of the workbook and force the user to close the workbook via my button?
i know in VB6 i could disable the X in the corner so someone can't X out of my form, and i see that's not an option in VBA.
So how can i stop the form from terminating when the user clicks that? i want them to be forced to use one of my buttons to close out and finish.
i tried adding something simple like Exit Sub to the Userform_Terminate() sub, but nothing. i can make code run when they click that, but i can't stop it from closing. what to do?
also, the form is being called by macro that does alot of other stuff before and after the form, so just opening a new instance of the form won't help unless you can stop my other code from continueing until the form is actually done...
I have a user form with four pages. I would like to disable pages 2 and 3 if the checkbox on page one is cheked. I know the pages have a property called "Enabled" but i can't figure out how to code this.
The user form is called frmAnvilProgNew The pages are called Page1, Page2, Page3, and Page4 The checkbox is called Check1
see the attached workbook. Is this possible? Should I be using tabs instead of pages?
I want to have a Checkbox (Form) that is in my Worksheet to disable/gray-out once it is selected. I don't want people to be able to uncheck it again. I want them to be forced to click another Checkbox to enable it again.
Check Box 1 = "Apply" Check Box 2 = "Delete"
Once "Apply" is checked, gray it out. This will force a user to click "Delete" in order for the "Apply" button to be enabled again. I do not want a user to click "Apply" once selected as their way of 'deleting' the information.
how you can remove the close 'X' on the title bar of a user form please? I have used this for a password input box but if the user selects the 'X' on the title bar then it closes the password box without them having to enter a password and allows them into the workbook.
Assume that the workbook Book1.xls opens a user form named myUserForm.
I'm trying to show only the user form on the desktop when I open Book1.xls, with Book1.xls minimized on the Taskbar.
And , if the Cancel button on the form is clicked, then unload the form and close Book1.xls.
In ThisWorkbook, I have the event:
Private Sub Workbook_Open() ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMinimized ShowTheForm End Sub On the Form, I have the Cancel button:
Private Sub btnCancel_Click() Unload Me ThisWorkbook.Close True End Sub
The above procedure shows the form, with Microsoft Excel blank window in the background, and produces a small bar at the bottom left of the screen for Book1.xls Click the Cancel button, and both the Form and Book1.xls close, but the blank Excel window remain open !
I suppose I would not be able to edit this version of Book1.xls, but that is fine for now!
How do I define the variable in a text box so that it stays in that text box after the close of the dialog box. For example, I enter "Test" in TextBox1 then close UserForm1. I want to be able to open UserForm1 back up and still have the same user defined text in there.
I am creating a form that performs several different functions. I would like to force a sequence of these functions by enabling/disabling the controls based on a variable.
For example, a form as two buttons Button1 and Button2. By default, Button1 is ENABLED and Button2 is DISABLED. When Button1 is clicked, a macro is run, where an Enable_Button2variable is initialized to FALSE. The last line of the macro sets the Enable_Button2 variable to TRUE. Then, because Enable_Button2 is now TRUE, Button2 then becomes ENABLED.
I am trying to apply this strategy to a ComboBox, ListBox and CommandButtons. I'm not sure what event to trigger on to poll the Enable_Button2 to enable/disable the control.
Now, my question is about a timer that I can show on a form. When the form is displayed I would like to give the user 30 seconds to press stop (and keep the workbook open) or to press proceed and save and close or to not do anything and the workbook would close and save when the timer reaches zero.
Code for user form which is missing most everything...
Private Sub Halt_Click() 'If user whats to continue without closing Auto_Shutdown_Form.Hide End Sub
Private Sub Proceed_Click() 'If user whats to save and close
How do I add a timer to this code where it will run this at the end of the timer?
Application.DisplayAlerts = False With ThisWorkbook .Saved = True .Close End With
I have a useform that loads up with two buttons and I waat to force the user to chose one of the buttons. However, I have noticed that the user can just press the cross in the top right corner of the form to close the window and therefore not press either button.
Is there anyway I can stop the close form button working?
I have a userform, every time the user clicks on the start button it recodes there name, today’s date and their start time when they hit finish it records their end time.
The next time the user hits start it will record the users name, today’s date and start time on the next row (below their last entry)
The problem I have is that if the user clicks on start and then does not click on end button, but instead exits excel, then reopens the user form and hits start. The start will go on the row below, but now when they click on the end button the end time will go into the previous row for the end time, as they did not put it in if you know what I mean.
I want to stop the user from being able to exit excel if they had clicked on start
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) Cancel = True MsgBox "You have clicked on Start and therefore mus Click the End button before you can exit excel.", vbCritical, "Cannot Close"
This disables the X in the top right hand corner, I have aready disabled the one in the user form. However the following code does not let the user exit via File and Exit. Is there a way to put an IF statement into this that say if CmdStart has been clicked then the user can not exit, How every if it has not then they can exit.
I have read threads on this forum as well as on others and this does seam to be and issue.
OR is there a way of Hiding the X button that is in the top right hand corner. However this will still allows the user to hit start button and then exit excel, which will continue with the problem.
Itâ€™s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.
These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer â€˜seeâ€™ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.
Iâ€™m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isnâ€™t there after closing.
These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesnâ€™t throw up these errors.
Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.
I need to know the command to close a workbook. I have used the information found here: http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/userform-close.htm to disable closing the workbook via the upper right "X", but I need a button that, when clicked, simply closes the workbook instead.
I'm missing something in my UserForm initialization code. If I fill the form out once and click 'OK' (run the code to put the form data into a sheet), when I go back into the form all the old info is still there. If I then click 'Cancel' (Unload Me) and reopen the form, the old data is cleared out. What am I missing to make it clear it out the first time?
I'm having trouble trying to come up with a way to insert data fields into a spreadsheet form. I have a travel authorization form that I would like to have automatically fill in the required fields based on typing in a name. i.e. I would type in an employees name, and it would automatically fill-in the correct address, etc for that employee. I have attached a spreadsheet that contains one sheet as the form, and another sheet containing the employee data. I know nothing about VBA, but I have a feeling that is where I need to go.
I am needing to create a form that exports data (a quote) to an Excel Db (table) and is then able to recall the data back into the form. (the default form in excel does this and I want to copy that.)
Once the data is called back in, I can then export it to another Table to show that the quote has been approved and will be used.
I am having trouble with the VBA coding that copies the inputted quote in Cell C2 (the reference for the quote number) of the "Form" sheet and looks it up in the "Database" sheet. I have tried several variations of code, but nothing works so far.
-SS Sub RecallQuote() ' ' RecallQuote Macro ' Sheets("Form").Select Range("C2").Select 'this is the cell that holds the quote number to look up from the table
I have a spreadsheet I use to keep track of weekly sales patterns and use for estimating the amount of a product I would need to order taking into account what I would expect to sell in a given week and what stock I have at present. On the example I've attached, I show where I enter my storeroom count figures, which are organised by supplier and the position in which a particular product appears on the supplier's order form. I have a page which lists the orders by suppliers and which are used to place the orders by e-mail or telephone.
At present I have each supplier section of the order form directly linked to a cell on the storeroom count as per columns K to M on the attached file. However, this means that as products are de-listed by suppliers and extra products become available, I have to edit the formula in each cell as the products now appear in a different position on the storeroom count and may otherwise end up on the order form for a different supplier. I would like to set it up so that I just have to select the supplier name and the table below will automatically fill with the required info, in order of the position they appear on the supplier's form. I'm struggling to combine vlookup and hlookup. Is there a way to do it or do I need to rethink?
