Display Alert On Excel Start

Sep 12, 2008

I have created a program to display an Alert based on a Date. I have this program enlcosed in the Workbook Open event. I need to popout this alert everyday, everytime EXCEL starts on a computer.

I had something in my mind though - I thought of plonking this program into the Workbook Open event of the Personal.xls workbook for a computer and thereby I could have achieved my requirement of popping out this alert everytime when Excel starts. However, there is one problem here. Every 3 to 5 days the dates in the workbook are going to change and I do not want the user to tamper with Personal.xls on his / her computer.

So I gave it a second thought. I created a shortcut of this workbook and placed it in the XLSTART folder for a computer and now the problem is - it opens the workbook itself rather than popping out the alert whenever Excel starts on the computer. So this would not work too.

Is there any other way I can make the alert pop out everytime I start Excel on a computer ?

Audio Alert: Alert For When Range ("C4").select Is >=1000 Alert Ring

Dec 7, 2008

I just discovered VBA coding today and was wondering if I could use it as an audio alert. I found a couple examples online but donít understand the coding language of excel. I have a feed link from my trading platform to excel that feeds in live data. What I would like to do is have an alert for when Range ("C4").select is >=1000 Alert Ring.wav and when Range ("C4").select is <=-1000 Alert Chimes.wav.

Display Alert When A Number In Column Has Already Been Entered

Jun 17, 2008

My colleague in accounts has a sheet that lists all the invoices and values and other 'accounts department things' that I know little about.

Anyway, she has to manually input all the invoices she receives onto this excel document but sometime receives duplicate invoices (& inputs them twice be accident).

Is it possible for someone with macro skills to create a macro to run in a worksheet so that if she enters a number in a given column more than once an alert box appears to tell her. I've summarised the 'rules' below*

*Can is be written so that I can edit which column the alert is based on?

[In (for example) column F is a list of invoice numbers - all unique]

If user types a number in column F that matches a number that already exists, show alert box "THERE APPEARS TO BE A DUPLICATE ENTRY IN COLUMN F"

====

Any further clarification, let me know i'll try to post a blank sheet if my boss lets me.

Macros Crahes - Alert Alert - Shut Down All Systems

Mar 27, 2007

Each month I get a report that I process using a macro. The problem is that each month the name of the file changes and is different. When I run the macro and it crashes I have to de-bug by going through the code to change all references to the file name from the the previos run and change to the latest file name and then re-run the macro. There must be a better way.

I would like to learn the code that sees the open book and then refers to it for the run.

What is the best way to do this?

Display The Macro Start/stop Recording

Oct 13, 2008

How can I make XL (2000) display the macro start/stop recording and relative/absolute box that used to appear whenever I started recording a macro?

Such an apparently simple issue, but I can't resolve it!

Somehow I lost this small box, and I know how to force it to display via customize, but it doesnít seem to work the same (relative does not work as such) and the buttons or box disappear.

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.

Can't Display Most Recent Start Date For Mission Of Particular Type For Agent

Jun 23, 2014

I have an excel spread sheet that is quite large it hold events for a piece of software that we are using what I am trying to do is display the last time was successful and the last time something failed

What I Want Return the MAX Value of the cells in a Column labeled start date for the rows where a Column labeled Agent =X and a Column labeled Mission Type = Y

In plain English with an example In another Cell I want to display the most recent start date for a mission of a particular type for an agent

Using the following table as an example I would like to determine the last time Agent 007 was on a Mission of type a

The Expected result should be 6/23/2008
If the same was asked for agent 99 the result would be 4/20/2008
And again for 66 the results would be 5/2/2008
If we then changed the mission type to b the results would be
007 6/23/2010
66 5/2/2010
99 4/25/2010

Here are the formulas i have tried already the results for these were incorrect and exactly the same 6/23/2012 the formula seems to be ignoring the first value and just calculating the last column to the latest date

[Code]....

Excel 2007 :: Any Way To Call Security Alert To Enable Macro

Jun 28, 2012

I'm trying to find out if there is a way to call the security alert to enable a macro. Let me explain...I was working on a sheet with a macro that I hadn't enabled yet. After working for awhile the option to enable it was gone and I found that I had to close the fine and re-open to enable the macro. I'm wondering if there is a ribbon or short cut icon to put in my access toolbar that will give me the option to enable/disable the macro. Seems strange that in 2003 I could to this, but in 2007 I have to close the file.

Excel 2007 :: Security Alert - Data Connection Message Every Time?

Dec 20, 2012

I open a spreadsheet or workbook that has links to other workbooks I am notified by the message bar that content has been blocked. I click Options > Enable this content > OK. Even if I don't make any changes I'm prompted to save changes when I close the file. If I hit Yes or if I hit No, I will still be prompted to enable content in the message bar the next time I open the same file.

I have changed the External Content settings in the Trust Center to "Enable all data connections (not recommended)" and "Enable automatic update for all workbook links (not recommended)" but I still get the messages.

My Message Bar is set to "Show the message bar in all applications when content is blocked" because I read on Microsoft KB that the other option of "never show information about blocked content" will still block the content, just not tell you about it, which doesn't fix my issue.

The files I'm opening and the files linked to and from them are all on the same shared drive on a file server in the office. Is there a way to tell Office '07 that our file drive is a trusted source by default?

Display End Time Automatically Upon Entering Start Time And Time Usage

Dec 19, 2008

I have a worksheet which contains START TIME in column A, then TIME USAGE in column B and END TIME in column C. User enters start time, followed by the number of time usage in minutes, how could i possibly display the end time automatically in this scenario? how do you add the entered time usage to the start time to display the end time? Say if I enter 1:00 AM at start time and 00:15 minutes on time usage, how can 1:15 AM be displayed on the end time automatically?

Excel 2010 :: Userforms Vba Coding Start Required?

May 1, 2014

I have a large userform created and the save and close function works well, i have read multiple post about searching, updating - however i dont understand the coding (yet), really need a breakdown so i can adjust to suit. My whole file is to large to upload so attached is a small snippet.

What i am after exactly is:

Label 1 = unique number id (eg. Vehicle Rego...) - entered by user
Search = to see if it is used already - if so populates the other cells with data from database, if not it can be used to start a new data entry on a new line in the database

Update = if a search was found can be ammended and "Updated" - overwriting the same line in the database

Save & New = Save new entry and clears for newer entry
Close = closes userform

I have added in a combobox to see any different programming.

I my original file the database stretches from A1:FL1 - hence why only a small file can be attached.

Calendar Control On Excel Worksheet - Default Start Date

Jul 9, 2012

I have set up a calendar control on a userform and got it to pop up when selecting one of 3 cells on a worksheet. The various bits of code making this work are below.

This code is attached to the Userform.

VB:
Private Sub Calendar1_Click()
With ActiveCell
.Value = Calendar1.Value

[Code]....

What I am struggling with is that I'd like to have the calendar that pops up in cell C18 (which is Date of Birth) default to starting on 1st January 1987 not todays date. Also, if there is a value in either of the 3 cells that use the calendar, then I'd like the calendar to display that date. If the cell is empty then todays date is fine for cells G3 and G26.

Excel 2007 :: Start Timer After Workbook Open For Certain Amount Of Time

Dec 28, 2013

I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.

VB:
Private Sub CBReset_Click()
Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double
T = Timer
Do
E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs
M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60)
S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)

Excel 2010 :: Data Validation Won't Accept Start And End Date From Cell Values?

Mar 16, 2014

Data validation in an Excel 2010 workbook.

I want the date input to be restricted a start date and an End date specified in two cells on the sheet. However, when I set up the Data Validation, ANY date will be accepted.

As an example cell Z1 contains the date 1/3/2014 and Cell Z2 contains the date 31/3/2014, so in the Data Validation box, the Start Date is referenced to Z1 and the End Date is referenced to cell Z2.

But I can enter 1/9/2020 and the Data Validation happily accepts that date.
