how to manage a custom faceid. Though, I am not too sure as to how to assign an actual icon to a custom toolbar. I can try the pasteface method; though as the source file is a .png; the picture might be too small.
I'm trying to do a pull down menu with three selections - green,yellow, and red dots? I set up the data validation and referred it to a list. That is under Data Validation -> Settings -> Allow: List; Source: a range of cells where I put 3 colored dots(graphics). Now in the pull down menu when I select the first choice, it just gives me a black dot. The second choice gives me the same black dot. And so does the 3rd choice gives me a black dot.
So, how do I carry the 3 colored dots over? Or it's not possible using the Data Validation approach? If not what is the best and easiest way to go about doing this....
I need to disable the "save as" file menu command when a user opens a shared document. Upon exit I want to enable the save as so that other opened worksheets are not affected. This code works: CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = False
My problem is this. I can activate this command by selecting run in the VB editor. But I need for this action to be automatic when a user opens the worksheet. I did this in the editor:
Sub dISABLESAVEAS() CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = False End
Sub WORKSHEET_BEFORECLOSE() CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = True End
Question regarding the disabling of right mouse button click options and have used the code below to disable and reciprocal code to enable options. The code works well in Excel 2003 but have recently used the spreadsheet in excel 2000 and the code causes a runtime error 5 'Invalid procedure call or argument'. how to amend the code to have it also work with Excel 2000.
I am creating a fool proof, well as near as I can get it, spreadsheet for them to work in and want them to follow the rules I set out!!
I am able to disable cut, copy, paste etc but was wondering if it was possible for to disable to use of the "Delete" function from the menu when you right click on a cell and also disable to the Delete key on the keyboard?
Is there a way to either hide or disable the worksheet menu bar on ONE SHEET ONLY, so that a right-click customize doesn't even work on that sheet. I want the user to be able to do nothing but what my customized toolbar allows on that sheet.
Is there a code or a way to make it impossible to make permanent changes to a file without first saving it as something else? I have a master report that is done monthly.
I do not want anyone to be able to save any changes on the master report. How do I go about disabling save and the save as funtions in excel? I have a save as command button that I only want people to use.
Also is there a way to set up a print command button to print to any computers default printer? I have set up a print command button on my computer and it works fine on mine, but I have sent the file to another person and the button is not doing anything on their computer. I assume because we don't have the same computers.
I would like my custom menus to act like builtin menus - specifically I would like them to be disabled (grayed out or even entirely removed) when the application is in Cell Edit Mode (I cant believe I am the first to ask about this but I cant find the answer elsewhere).
It sure seems confusing to offer users access to a seemingly active command when it does not run (in edit mode I mean).
I send huge lumps of Karma to any willing to share ideas or solutions.
I'm adding a menu selection to the right-click menu that you get for cells. I can add and remove the menu option but, when I try to execute the macro tied to the menu, I get "the macro...cannot be found". I can't figure out what appears to be a "pathing problem". I'm sure it's simple but...
I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.
I need to send out an order form (spreadsheet) to 100's of people that need to complete the form and email back to me as an attachment. If I was completing the order form myself I would use the "email" icon that I have pinned to my Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). However, most of the recipients don't even know the Toolbar exists.
Is there a way I can insert an icon / hyperlink in the spreadsheet that does the same thing as the QAT icon. I can insert text to say "click here to email your order" (or similar).
I need to keep it in an excel format and an icon is so much better that asking them to save to their hard-drive and attach to an email, etc.
The QAT icon is exactly what is needed but I need to provide a spreadsheet that works for folk who haven't got the icon.
I want to copy the First Row which is the Column heading of one Sheet to a different Sheet Example : From Col A till Col G First Row is to be copied as an Image. Normally I do it using the Camera Icon, however when I tried recording a Macro for the same it did not work..
So how do I that if I provide the Start Column and End Column Alphabet as a Variable is that possible.. I want this Image to not remain Volatile which is the case using the Camera Tool..
So, how do i get the picture of only the first row or any row and store it is an Image in a different sheet as static picture so that even when the sheet is moved to a different location it does not make a difference to the Image.
I have a question concerning Macros and the Disable/Enable prompt. My boss has a spreadsheet which has been used for years and he recently wanted to and did remove the macros from the spreadsheet (they were no longer necessary), but the disable/enable prompt still appears when the spreadsheet is opened. I replicated this in a test spreadsheet with a simple insert line macro and received the same results. Is there a way to remove the macros and the disable/enable prompt once they are removed? I know about setting the security to low to not see the prompt, but I would think that once the macros are deleted, the prompt should not appear any more.
I have written two VBA programs around the same time. Both run on open and pull external data and create graphs. My problem is that I want the end user to be able to run the report multiple times by choosing the name of the macro from the Excel macro menu (i.e. Tools>Macro>Macros) but only one of the workbook macros shows up on the menu. why the other macro is not visible on this menu???
I've recorded a macro that copies an entire tab into a new spreadsheet then goes on the copy and paste information from one tab to another.
When I run the macro from the Tools>Macros menu it works perfectly. But when I copy the code and add it to that of a button it fails and posts the following error: Run-time error '1001': Select method of Range class failed.
The first attachement shows the code for the macro as it is alone, and the second shows how I simply copied and pasted it into the 'view code' window of the button.
Needless to say I'm a beginner at macros and only every record them, I can usually make stuff work that way but this has me stumped!
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.
VB: Private Sub Workbook_Open()Worksheets("Sheet1").ActivateRange("$B$1").SelectSheets("Sheet1").ScrollArea = "A1:z25"End Sub
Now I want to disable the above such that I am able to add an Apostrophe ( ' ) in front of every line of this Macro. Is there a shortcut for this or do I need to Manually add apostrophe in front of every line? And then after disabling if I need to re-enable it is there a shortcut to that too?
from 1 sheet i am opening several other worksheets and read in the bits i want. i am finding that on occasions the workbook_open on these sheets is causing great performance issues because of the calc mode set to automatic in the open routine of the individual sheets. i dont need it to be set to auto but the sheet owners perfer it to be set like this and i cant turn it off their sheets. is ther a way of opening a workbook from a macro and then override its workbook_open routine?
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(sSourceFolder & "" & "mySheet.xls", False, True)
i cant find any other switches that i could use to disable this.
