Allow User To Restart Macro Or Close Workbook

Jun 25, 2008

I have a macro that runs when the workbook opens. At the end of my macro I've added a Yes/No box. If 'No' the workbook closes without saving. If 'Yes' I would like to restart the macro. I can close it ok, but I don't know how to restart the macro from line 1 when 'Yes' is selected. Here is what I have:

YesNo = MsgBox("Done! Would you like to run again?", vbYesNo + vbCritical, "Caution")
Select Case YesNo
Case vbYes

'I don't know what to put here :(

Case vbNo
ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False
End Select

Stop Cut/Copy Ability In Workbook

Oct 15, 2007

I wanted to stop users from using cut and paste as well as drag and drop so I found something in Ozgrid to do that. (http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/disable-cut-copy.htm)

Problem now is I am trying to run a macro that will copy and paste certain values, but because of the code I have added in the above link, whenever I click on a cell and copy it, when I click any other cell, the copy area gets cleared which of course disallows me from pasting it.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Dim oCtrl As Office.CommandBarControl
With Application
.CopyObjectsWithCells = True

.CellDragAndDrop = True
.CutCopyMode = True 'Clear clipboard
End With

'Enable all Cut menus
For Each oCtrl In Application. CommandBars.FindControls(ID:=21)
oCtrl.Enabled = True
Next oCtrl

'Enable all Copy menus
For Each oCtrl In Application.CommandBars.FindControls(ID:=19)
oCtrl.Enabled = True
Next oCtrl.....................

Compile Error On Close Of Excel 2003 But Not On Close Of Workbook

Mar 22, 2012

I am using Excel 2003.

It’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 ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’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 doesn’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.

Disable Red X But Keep Enable File - Close Working

Dec 24, 2008

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.

Allow User To Disable Event Code

Dec 29, 2007

I have these codes in place in my excel file, there is nothing wrong with them at all. Here is the the problem : My superior runs the macros in place in the file almost daily, and when he is done he then closes it and all is well.
The macros does things to other files so they are changed in a way that the supervisors like them. I avoided putting macros in these individual files, because of the attempt to make it as simplistic as possible without them being able to affect overall file.
The problem happens when he (my superior) accidently makes a change in the primary sheet in the workbook with all the macros, it affects alot of my formulas and macros that are already in place. Within this workbook, it keeps a log of things from the other files results, so I have to have a record of it in the workbook, hence having a save event in place.

The Question: Is it possible to create a macro button, that will allow him to disable the codes below, so that he can close it and open again, so that it doesn't show any of the errors that happens by accident and try to close it again so there is no errors? Basically, I am asking what is the code for this, and where would I place it in.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim mylogoff
Set mylogoff = Sheet1. Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 1)
mylogoff.FormulaR1C1 = "=NOW()"
mylogoff.Copy
mylogoff.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = Fals
mylogoff.Offset(0, 1).FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]-RC[-2]"
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets("Start Here").Select
ThisWorkbook.Save
ThisWorkbook.Close
End Sub......................

Open Only The User Form ... Or Close Everything

Mar 22, 2006

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.

That simple!

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!

Refresh All Queries On Workbook Open When Finished Print To PDF Then Close Workbook

Jan 23, 2014

I have data that daily needs to be refreshed and printed to pdf.

I figure the simplest way to do this would be to task schedule the workbook to open daily. Then on open it will refresh the data, print it after all data has been refreshed and close the workbook.

I set it up originally without the need to print so I have all the queries set to refresh when opening the file, however when I now try and put the code to print to pdf on the workbook open event it runs before the queries are finished running. (Query notes: queries were created through Microsoft query, and are accessing a MySQL database queries set to refresh when opening the file queries set to enable background refresh).

Close And Reopen Workbook From Macro Stored Inside Workbook

Mar 30, 2007

I have a Macro that is stored in a specific workbook,"Projection Modeler.xls" the last line performed in this macro is the close workbooks without saving chages(this needs to be done due to the way this macro was written, and it would take too long to rewrite). If I would then like to reopen this workbook, and then rerun this macro, can I do this from inside the current macro (in a new sub routine, for instance), or do I have to write a macro outside of the workbook and then open the workbook and call the routine?

When Close Worksheet Its Reopens The User Form And Hits Start

Oct 23, 2009

I have a userform, every time the user clicks on the start button it recodes there name, todays 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, todays 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"

End Sub

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.

Disable User Access To Master Sheet Through Doubleclicking Locked Linked Cell

Feb 23, 2010

I have a master spreadsheet that houses most of the information that remains in my control, and several other user spreadsheets that update cells from that master through links.

I am having some problems lately with users doubleclicking the locked linked cells in their workbooks, and excel then wanting to open and give the user access to my master spreadsheet. Is there a way to disable this feature? I would like it to not even acknowledge the action if that's even possible because it confuses them as to why they are getting a prompt to open another document.
