Disable Menu Commands

Jun 1, 2007

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:

Under general

CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = False

CommandBars("File").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = True

Different Commands When Pasting Excel To Word

Nov 26, 2011

What are the different commands for pasting data from excel to word? The code I have below pastes excel cell data to word as a picture. What if I want to paste excel cell data as embedded in the word document (I don't want it linked, just want the user to be able to edit it as an Excel sheet within the Word document). Thinking that I need to change the "DataType:=wdPasteText" part, but I don't know the correct syntax. Tried wdPaste but that did not work.

sub mysub()
Dim WdObj As Object, fname As String

fname = "myfilename"[code]....

Issuing Word Commands From Excel Macro

Nov 20, 2006

I am trying to build a word document from an excel macro (with some success) and I am running into some issues with excel not understanding some of the word macro commands. An excellent example of this is when I am trying to insert a page break as seen in the below code snippet:

'open word and create a new document
Dim wdApp As Object
Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.application")

'put some text into the document
wdApp.Selection.typetext Text:="Document title"
'insert a page break
wdApp.Selection.InsertBreak Type:=wdPageBreak

I know the insert break command works fine because I can get it to work within a word macro. When trying to get excel to run it in word is another story. I get the following error message:

run-time error '9118':
Parameter value was out of acctable range

wdPageBreak = empty

Excel 2010 :: Refresh The Ribbon?

Feb 15, 2013

I have an excel tool I am adapting to 2010 from 2003. It imports another tool which has been created elsewhere in my company and it is protected so I cannot alter it. This tool that I cannot change creates its own custom toolbar the "old fashioned" way so it dumps into the add-in tab on the ribbon. My tool opens this corporate tool and changes some items on the toolbar (enters values in a text box) and then imports data from it. However in run-time the custom toolbar never appears. Is there a way to refresh the ribbon in run-time after opening the file so I can then access the toolbar items?

Excel 2007 :: Make Button In Ribbon Menus To Run Macro?

Aug 9, 2013

I've been trying to research how to do this for a while now and still can't figure it out. My impression is that this is fairly straightforward in Excel 2010 since the menus and ribbons are easily customizable but not so in Excel 2007.

So far I can get macro shown as a button in the Quick Access Toolbar. But the issue is that I can't organize them or customize the icons.

Is there an accepted practice for this?

Excel 2010 :: How To Assign RELATIVE Macros To Custom Ribbon

Aug 19, 2014

I currently have an excel workbook (2010) in which I created a custom ribbon and assigned several different macros to the buttons.

Long story short, I will be saving several variations of this workbook every so often when I get new data.

The problem is that if I change the name of the file (Save as or Rename), the custom ribbon buttons no longer work. When I assigned the macros to the ribbon buttons, the macros were absolutely assigned.

Is it possible to assign relative macros to custom ribbons?

From research I have done, it appears that custom ribbons cannot be created using VBA. Is this still true?

Excel 2007 :: Custom Controls Not Showing In Add-ins Ribbon Tab And XML Error

Jul 18, 2013

We are using Windows7 with Excel 2007. We have old code from excel 2003 and earlier that was adding a msoControlPopup with other sub-controls using the code below:

Set HelpMenu = CommandBars(1).FindControl(Id:=30010)
If HelpMenu Is Nothing Then
' Add the menu to the end


I tried going to Excel Options>Customize>Reset to reset any customizations to the quick access toolbar as this was recommended by something else I found online. This did not fix the problem.

I can find the control in the Immediate window but it just isn't showing in the add-ins tab. if I can find and repair that XML file perhaps?

Disable All Excel Functions?

Oct 19, 2011

Is it possible to disable all Excel functions? not as in disable calculation, but actually make Excel's standard functions not available in a workbook.

My reason for wondering if this is possible is that I would like to write UDFs that perform special actions in addition to the typical Excel functions, but give them the same name as their Excel counterparts... essentially create polymorphisms / overloaded Excel functions.

Disable Excel Key-catcher

Dec 1, 2011

I'm actually trying to make a game in Excel, coded in VBS (I know, this is crazy ), and I use the API "GetAsyncKeyState" in order to catch what keys are pressed :

Public Const VK_UP = &H26
Public Const VK_DOWN = &H28
Public Const VK_LEFT = &H25
Public Const VK_RIGHT = &H27
Public Const VK_DELETE = &H2E

Set oDyn = CreateObject("DynamicWrapper")

[Code] ........

It works perfectly, except when the Excel window is activated (i.e. foreground) : GetAsyncKeyState doesn't catch keys anymore. Excel seems to keep it for himself, and don't share it with the System...

I already tried to disable the Excel DataEntryMode, but my problem's still here... Is there a way to disable this Excel's behaviour, or making GetAsyncKeyState work better ?

Excel 2007 :: VBA Disable Compatibility Alert

Feb 27, 2014

Currently I am working on a workbook where I am using a Save As VBA to create a folder and rename the file. The following code seems to be working fine so far with Excel 2007. Is there a way to confirm that it will work with all other versions of Excel and that my DesktopFolderPath String will work on all users machines?

In addition to these concerns, I am trying to avoid any Runtime Errors and currently, the Compatability Alert is the only thing I can see that is creating one. When it displays, in the event the user is unsure what to do, as most of our field staff is, and they select "Cancel" it displays the error Run Time Error.jpg. Can the Compatibility Alert be disabled? If so where do i add it in my code.
