Disabling Auto Calculate For Others?

Jan 22, 2009

I'm working on a workbook that has alot of calculations in it, on a pretty slow PC (Work-related), so auto-calculate is casuing crashing, so what I've done with this sheet is disabled auto-calculate and added a macro to calculate each sheet indiviually instead, which avoids the crashing (The last sheet still takes a minute and a half to process but thats ok I guess).

My worry is, when this workbook does the rounds, peoples excel will already have autocalculate on, and will crash it themselves. Is there anyway I can ensure that the sheet turns atuocalculate on or, failing that, does anyone have any ideas on how to help the issue?

Disabling Auto-Filter In VB?

Mar 26, 2004

I ran into a problem with one of my macros the other day. It processes several data files given to us each week. This week, one of the files had Auto-Filter enabled. I had to manually disable auto-filter, and re-run my macro.

I tried recording this action, but wasn't able to. Is there a way to disable/enable Auto-Filter with VB?

Auto Calculate Not Working

Jul 27, 2006

I import a file and paste as CSV. I believe everything is considered text
then, but there are numbers as well. The worksheet has over 4000 lines. I
try to concantenate two cells (ie. a2 and b2). I use the function, but the
result shows the formula. What I want is the new value or the string of
words. I have checked my options and the auto calculate is turned on. I
even try the various F9 keys.

Auto-calculate Last Day For A Month

Nov 28, 2006

I'm working on a Calendar. One where all the user does is input the year, and the rest of the Calendar fills itself out, as to the days.

Leap year is causing a small problem. There may be an easier way to do this (actually, I'm sure there is, but anyway), is there a way for a cell to automatically figure the last day of the month?

IE: I put "2007" in a field. Another cell auto matically reads as "28" (last day of Feb for this year). Subsequently, when I enter "2008", the same field reads "29".

The rest I think I got ok, but everytime I get a leap year, it shoves all my formulas down a cell, thanks to the extra day, and they're all off by one (February calendar showing last day as "01" from March, and "29" as the first day for March, from Feb).

Auto Calculate Profit By Part #

May 21, 2007

I have attached a chart I'm working on. Each item is assigned a part number and it automatically takes away from the inventory each time an item is sold. I was wondering if the bottom half could work with the top to determine profit.


Customer purchases Part # 3 (C15) Quantity 1 (D15) for $450 (E15). Is there any way to set it up so whatever part number they enter...it subtracts their sold price from the cost (C5 through C11) to show the profit in (F15).

Disabling A COM Add-In

Feb 26, 2010

Is there a way using VBA that will allow me to disable a COM Add-in when I open a workbook without me (or the user) going through the steps to remove it first.

The reason for my asking is this: We have installed SAS Add-in 2.1 to Excel 2007. So this brings up SAS under the Add-Ins tab. But then when my program executes and it sees I use command bars, it adds my command bars under the SAS menu. I am trying to make the interface as clean as possible for the user, so they only see my command bars or menus.

Also, if we were to install the SAS Add-in 4.2 to Excel 2007, I have read in a SAS paper that SAS Add-in 4.2 creates its owe tab on the ribbon instead of inside the Add-in tab. So I would be able to use xml to make the SAS tab visible="false".

Disabling 'mailto'

Oct 13, 2008

I am just using a simple sheet to keep track of email addresses. Every time I enter an email address it automatically creates it as a hyperlink/mailto function. So if I click on the cell, it will create a new email via outlook addressed to that person.

This is driving me nuts! I have a few thousand emails, mostly copied from other people's sheets, and 90% of them are set like this. Is there a fast way I can disable this function so that every cell is just text?

Disabling Copy Function

Is there anyway in excel to make it so that you cannot copy the data off of the spreadsheet, but the user can still do functions, more specifically filters and such.

I've been asked to put it in PDF format, but my spreadsheet becomes useless without the use of filters. It's a check for the copyrights of my company.

Disabling Frames By Content

Jan 25, 2010

I have a UserForm with lots of controls divided by multiple frames. (163 controls over 19 frames). The same UserForm will be collecting multiple sets of data but the first set is a "master" set. Anything entered in the master set will auto fill in subsequent sets.

What I need is a way of preventing the user from changing any options that were input in the master set in subsequent sets. ie, If I entered info into Frame1 of the master set it would show up the next time I opened the UserForm (I have this part), but I would not be able to interact with it (this is what I need).

Since I'm already pre-populating subsequent sets with the master info, my first thought is to loop through each frame testing for input and if so setting Enabled = False, but I'm not sure how to do the loop/test. Is there a way to set up a "For Each Frame in UserForm" statement? Also, the controls in each Frame could be TextBox, OptionButton, and/or CheckBox. (sometimes more than one type in the same Frame)

VBA For Conditional Checkbox Disabling

Nov 8, 2013

I have a userform with one combo box and one check box. Using the below script I am attempting to disable the check box as soon as a selection from the drop down option of the combobox is made. The combo box drop down menu starts with a blank. What I am finding is that even if the blank option is selected then this disables the checkbox prematurely. Ideally the checkbox should only disable if a non-blank option from the combo box drop down menu has been selected.

What I would like to have as end-result is that the blank option from the drop down menu in the combo box can also enable the check box again if a selection from the drop down menu has been chosen but then reverted again.

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Select Case CheckBox1.Value
Case True: ComboBox1.Enabled = True
Case False: CheckBox1.Enabled = False
End Select
End Sub

Disabling Macros Not Working

I have a workbook which adds command bar named "Upload Processing" to Excel application if you open it.

The weirdest thing is, it hasn't got any macro stored anywhere or at least I can't see it anywhere (Alt+F11).

Note: Don't forget to use application.commandbars("Upload Processing").delete command from VBEditor to get rid of this newly added command bar when you are trialing.

Disabling Macro When Condition Met

I have recorded a simple macro that refreshes a set of random data in my sheet everytime I click on the button I made.
When I see a zero in one of the cells I know to stop refreshing. The thing is, I click on the button quite rapidly and sometimes miss the zero. I need to click on this button quite quickly so slowing down isnt an option!
What I need is for excel to stop that button operation when it sees a zero in one of the cells.
