Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Application.CutCopyMode = False Application.OnKey "^c", "" Application.CellDragAndDrop = False End Sub Private Sub Workbook_Deactivate()
OR This one:
Option Explicit Private Sub Workbook_Activate() With Application .CutCopyMode = False .CellDragAndDrop = False
I noltice that one uses "Option Explicit" and one doesn't, one seems to be longer than the other, but when I tested both, they both seem to do the same thing. I did notice that neither one of them prevents a "paste" into the worksheet when something is copied from an outside source, but that is not a concern right now!!!
I need to disable cut and drag only in a workbook. The idea is to avoid formula reference errors when unlocked cells are cut and pasted or dragged. I can find many macros online but none that do only these two things.
Is it possible to enable/disable a texbox in excel which has been assigned a macro. To make it clear I'm not talking about a textbox within a userform. I understand I should really be using command buttons but I prefer the look of textboxes.
I have the following code to change the colour of the textbox (name: txtCreateInvoice) but the final line to disable the textbox doesn't work.
Sheets(1).Shapes.Range(Array("txtCreateInvoice")).Select With Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.ForeColour .ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorText1 .Brightness = 0.5 End With Selection.Enabled = False
On several of my worksheets, I'm asked if I want to disable/enable the macros but there are none associated with that particular worksheet- matter of fact, none of my worksheets have macros unless pivot tables count, so why am I being prompted in that way?
I have 3 checkboxes on a worksheet. I have a command button to copy/paste data that is captured from a device.
I want the data to go to the ranges that are selected by referring to the true/false driving mechanism of the check boxes.
Obviously if more than one button is checked at one time, the whole shooting match will blow up.
So....how can I allow only one check box to be active at any given time? I'm thinking perhaps a select case statement that refers to the possible conditions of true true true, true true false, true false true, etc....If that would work, how could the code be simplified?
Let's call them cb1, cb2 & cb3. Is this even possible??
I have a checkbox (checkbox1) on a userform that functions to disable two listboxes (monthListbox & yearListbox) when checked. For this, I have the following
Private Sub CheckBox1_Click() MonthListBox.Enabled = Not CheckBox1 MonthListBox.BackColor = &H8000000B MonthListBox.Locked = True YearListBox.Enabled = Not CheckBox1 YearListBox.BackColor = &H8000000B YearListBox.Locked = True
This works fine and dandy. However, when testing the userform, when I "unchecked" the checkbox, it did not undo the actions. So my question is, is there a sub to undo the actions that the above code does after I "uncheck" the checkbox. Additionally...under what event would I write this sub since I've already completed the sub for Checkbox_Click()
I can't seem to get the fill handle "+" sign to give the correct amounts when I want to copy a formula down a column. It seems to skip every 2nd row with the wrong amount or sometimes it will give a 0.00 sign.
I have a function =TimeSinceIns(3) in cell K3. Where the 3 represents the row number. I would like to fill the function all the way down to cell k100. And be able to do this reguarly. Unfortunately when I use the fill handle it leaves 3 as 3 when I want it to be changing to the appropriate row no. Ie in cell k4 would be =TimeSinceIns(4) and so on.
I need a macro to disable all cut options (ctrl^x, right click cut, cut button in ribbon above), disable drag and drop, but still allow copying and pasting (the cutting affects cell references). I've already locked the spreadsheet, but users need to be able to input information and paste information in from other workbooks. This code must also only apply to THIS WORKBOOK and not affect others. Please help with a macro for this, as well as where to paste and how to properly configure macro security settings. I'm a big excel user, but this is my first time ever with VB and macros so talk to me like I'm dumb! I've pasted links to the two codes I tried, and I think one of them enabled a macro that affected all workbooks and now whatever code I put in won't save upon re-opening. It's there when I navigate to it, but it is ineffective like it's not even there. In macro security, I've enabled all macros and have the "trust VB programming" box checked. So maybe do some damage control before re-programming. I am getting a new computer in less than a month, but I want to be able to try out the code and have it work first, and I don't want to transfer the harmful code to the new computer.
P.S. This first code allows copying and cutting, but then just disables pasting, which is not what I want. The second one works great, but disables the right click menu altogether, which is no good either. And neither allow for pasting from the outside. And this is for moderate excel users, they won't try to erase the macro. I just need to keep them from making mistakes with cutting.
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 am attempting to modify a spreadsheet so that it will enable a range on Sheet3 (I9:K42) if a check box is checked on Sheet2. If it is not checked, it will lock that range on Sheet 3 and grey (or gray, if you prefer) out that range.
I have collected some data from survey respondents, and I have the following array formula:
What I'd like to do is make the 3rd criterion -- $H$1:$H$400="american" -- dependent on whether the string value in cell A1 ("Evaluate Americans only?") is "yes" or "no".
Because, my actual situation is considerably more complex (see below), I'm looking to insert a test within the MIN array formula to check the value of A1, and calculate the answer accordingly.
I'm aware that I could theoretically create two array arguments (one with & one without the American test), and place them inside an IF function that tests the value of A1. However that isn't practical for my real-world situation...
I occasionally see array formulas with all sorts of symbols that I don't really understand in the array context (such as * and | and . ), and I'm wondering if one of those magic symbols might be the doorway to my solution.
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.
I'm currently building an Excel database. This database has a few comboboxes and checkboxes that are tied to each other. If I select the combobox option of "Years", the "Quarters" combobox must be greyed out. In addition depending on which option is chosen, the relevant check boxes must be enabeled or disabled. I've written some code which runs fine, until I try and activate another macro button or if I add and rename a sheet(which is not linked to anything). What should I do? Here is a sample of my code. I have a feeling it's really obviouse but I cant see it..
I am trying to allow uses of a spreadsheet to be able to select one control button which would in turn disable another one via check boxes however the control buttons do not re-enable when the undo check box is selected.
I am trying to copy a countif formula down a column using the fill handle, but when I copy the formatting down the column the range changes. Is there a way to make it so that only the variable changes and the range stays the same?
