Disable Middle-mouse-click Scroll On Inherited Excel File
May 7, 2014
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
way, using VBA code, to disable/enable individual shortcut menu items that are are made available with a right mouse button click. The following code disables the right mouse button completely but I would like to disable only a couple of options like the ' Cut' option.
The code to disable is below and to re-enable I just change False to True.
Dim cb As CommandBar i = 0 For Each cb In CommandBars If cb.Type = msoBarTypePopup Then cb.Enabled = False Next cb
So there's a macro "RoundedRectangle4_click" that's assigned to a box on a worksheet. It's a simple macro, I assume. it just takes the user to the 'Main Sheet' tab. I know the name b/c I rightclicked on the box to get the Macro Assigned.
I click on Macros (F8), it's not listed there, but"RoundedRectangle5_click" is, so I click on it, edit it to match the one I'm searching. Nope, nothing. CREATE button is highlighted.
I've gone to VBA (AltF11) to try to find it among the 25+ worksheets, forms & modules - haven't found it yet.
I'm using Excel 2007. When I try to scroll with the mouse wheel, it doesn't do anything. If I hold down the control key and scroll with the mouse, it zooms in and out. So that works fine, but I can't do the basic scrolling up and down the document with the mouse wheel. There is no "Tools, Options" menu in 2007 so I don't even know where to find this type of option. The options available from the Office button are completely different.
I recently upgraded to Excel 2007. I use Excel with "Allow editing directly in cells" unchecked. In previous versions, pressing F2 would not prevent me from using the mouse scroll, but in Excel 2007 I am unable to mouse scroll which makes it bothersome. Is there a setting somewhere that can enable mouse scroll after pressing F2?
I have seen some code around that allows scrolling in listboxes using the mousewheel. I have also seen some code here on the forums about scrolling through a combobox embedded in a workbook. I have tried adapting both of these to suit a combobox on a userform but I cannot get either to work.
Here is the code that I used for the embedded combobox; I added it to the base code for the userform
I then added the following code to a standard module as stated in the forum post;
In the first section of the code there is a msgbox that never gets shown so I don't think code is recognizing the mouse wheel at all.
The second set of code that I used was set up to work with a listbox and it works perfectly with a listbox control. The problem is I cannot adapt it to suit a combobox and if I use a breakpoint to see what is happening Excel freezes. The following code is added to the userforms code;
Then in a standard module I added the following code;
I added this section of the code;
I think this should only work on a Combobox but a Combobox does not appear to support the TopIndex value. Is there a way this can be setup to work with a userform combobox? Sorry about the huge amount of code.
I am having problems with an Excel workbook I am working on. I have a sheet that has a number of controls added to the top of it. Two of these controls are listboxes. My problem is, if I am in the listbox navigating through it, and I accidently move the Mouse Wheel, Excel crashes and I get the usual, "Send Error Report" form.
I have seen that there are other people having this problem and that there are a number of solutions out there but my problem is a bit different. I have a few forms with listboxes on them, and while mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work, it certainly doesn't crash Excel. It only seems to happen when I have a control permanently added to the sheet. Is there any event handler for mouse wheel scrolls or anyway to disable them through VB?
I'm trying to do a few things actually. I am somewhat a newb at programming, although I do understand how C++ and the coding works within Excel. To me, it's like the English language...knowing all of the vocabulary and formatting it right is important. If I don't know the vocabulary, I don't know what options I have.
This tool is being used in the call center I work in. It is to help eliminate repititious information used to notate accounts. I have attached a picture of what the tool looks like so you can have a better idea of what I'm working with. Here are a list of things I'm trying to do which I have searched and not found answers to:
1. I am trying to use a middle mouse scroll to scroll through validation list. This list information is located on a different locked tab. Basically, I have a few rows where a drop down selection can be made and it would be easier to scroll rather than manually moving the slider within the validation list.
2. As you can see, this "tool" an employee and I have created has many buttons. What I would like to do is to be able to click a button on the right and have it "stack" text within a single cell. In other words, if I click the button once, the text may be entered into the "actions taken" cell. If I click another button, I can have the option (or maybe a little "+" next to the button) to add this button's information to the end of the information already entered within the "actions taken" box. I've tried recording and using the keyboard and selecting "end" and then having the text added, but it didn't work. I've seen "loop" VBA code, but I don't want something to repeat, I want it to stack in the cell when clicked manually.
I'm sure there is a way to make the tool much better using VBA code and not use Excel, but I don't have an extensive knowledge of Excel to do something like that. I'm a very fast learner and understand how the coding works, so if you have an idea which may help, and you understand what I'm trying to do here, please provide your .02.
Basically, it's used so the Customer's name and phone number are entered manually, and then just about everything else is automated by the use of the buttons on the right. If I could get the 2 above options to work, it'd be perfect. I just figured out I could eliminate screen flicker and hide the macros working by using:
I have a worksheet that serves as a navigation page for the workbook and use the following code to restrict from scrolling off the viewable content. The problem is that the code doesn't kick in until either a click if the mouse or keyboard input. This initially leaves the worksheet open for scrolling until input is received.
How do I make this code activate when the wb is loaded? Code in the Thisworkbook module already makes the menu the visible sheet, and code limiting the scroll area is in the sheet module.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) With ActiveSheet .ScrollArea = "A1:L11" End With Range("A1").Activate End Sub
I've also tried using "Range("A1").Select", but it doesn't work either. How can I get this to work correctly?
I need to be able to prevent any user from cutting and pasting data in one of my spreadsheets. I have protected it all, removed cut and paste from the options- edit tab, but you can still cut and paste with the right mouse shortcut key.
I use Excel XP 2002. I now can't copy /paste by using the right mouse button. It works perfectly in other MS products, on the net and on the desktop. l have checked my Tools/Options with other users, I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled the complete Excel package but the problem persists, even from start with a blank worksheet. I have also checked and there are no add-on ticked.
I'm trying to design a form, for various staff members to populate. I would like to ease their usage by putting a check mark in which ever cell they left click, also if they click a second time in the same cell it will undo the action.
I have not decided yet which which cells I am using, but is their some simple routine that could be used over & over again and all I would need to do would (hopefully) simply be to change the cell numbers in the routine to apply to that cell or range of cells.
I have a log that stores a list of different files in the first column. All of these files are worksheet hyperlinks (ie: =HYPERLINK("\USSS000010_PUBLIC5_COMMON15_PPA20066-032G6-032G.xls","06-032G")). If I click on any of these cells the file will open.
I am trying to open certain files from the list using VBA.
My question is Is there any way to simulate a mouse click, on the cell containing the hyperlink, using VBA?
In excel when you have filters on for all columns there is a little bitty square box with a little down arrow (like an upside down triangle) in the lower right corner of every cell in the top row (the header row) and I can't find a way to select one of those little itty bitty down arrows without using a mouse - -
Is there any way to select one of those little down arrows in the little filter box icon thingy with the keyboard?? I can't figure it out.
I just want to select the little arrow so that the filter dialog box opens - I am trying to create a keyboard macro that will use the 'BEGINS WITH' macro but when i record the macro it uses the same word for the "BEGINS WITH" parameter every time and I want it to use the word in the current clipboard - can't seem to write that.
I have a worksheet that I use to monitor the progress of student interns. They are assigned 20 different tasks and recieve 5 points for each task they complete, for a possible total of 100. In my worksheet, I record their progress and maintain a running total. I do this by simply inserting the number "5" by each cell containing each task. Instead of inserting the value, what I'd prefer to do is simply place my cursor, click the mouse button, and have a formattable check mark appear with a hidden value of "5". I'm simply trying to create a snazzy interface. Do I want too much? Or is it actually possible to do this?
I have an excel file with a column (I) which lists the total number of businesses in a different tab (DATA) that meet certain restrictions (these restrictions being listed in the same row in different cells). When the cell under coluimn "I" is double-clicked, it pulls the businesses from tab DATA that meet the restrictions for that row and shows them all in another tab.
I don't know the person that created this and was wondering if there is a way to figure out what is being done to make this happen? I looked in macros, but didn't see anything relating to this. Anyone know how this is done?
So you know, I have tried double-clicking other cells, but nothing happens - not even editing into the cell (altho this can be done from the toolbar up top).
