I am trying to allow uses of a spreadsheet to be able to select one control button which would in turn disable another one via check boxes however the control buttons do not re-enable when the undo check box is selected.
Is it possible to enable/disable a texbox in excel which has been assigned a macro. To make it clear I'm not talking about a textbox within a userform. I understand I should really be using command buttons but I prefer the look of textboxes.
I have the following code to change the colour of the textbox (name: txtCreateInvoice) but the final line to disable the textbox doesn't work.
Sheets(1).Shapes.Range(Array("txtCreateInvoice")).Select With Selection.ShapeRange.Fill.ForeColour .ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorText1 .Brightness = 0.5 End With Selection.Enabled = False
On several of my worksheets, I'm asked if I want to disable/enable the macros but there are none associated with that particular worksheet- matter of fact, none of my worksheets have macros unless pivot tables count, so why am I being prompted in that way?
I have 3 checkboxes on a worksheet. I have a command button to copy/paste data that is captured from a device.
I want the data to go to the ranges that are selected by referring to the true/false driving mechanism of the check boxes.
Obviously if more than one button is checked at one time, the whole shooting match will blow up.
So....how can I allow only one check box to be active at any given time? I'm thinking perhaps a select case statement that refers to the possible conditions of true true true, true true false, true false true, etc....If that would work, how could the code be simplified?
Let's call them cb1, cb2 & cb3. Is this even possible??
I have a checkbox (checkbox1) on a userform that functions to disable two listboxes (monthListbox & yearListbox) when checked. For this, I have the following
Private Sub CheckBox1_Click() MonthListBox.Enabled = Not CheckBox1 MonthListBox.BackColor = &H8000000B MonthListBox.Locked = True YearListBox.Enabled = Not CheckBox1 YearListBox.BackColor = &H8000000B YearListBox.Locked = True
This works fine and dandy. However, when testing the userform, when I "unchecked" the checkbox, it did not undo the actions. So my question is, is there a sub to undo the actions that the above code does after I "uncheck" the checkbox. Additionally...under what event would I write this sub since I've already completed the sub for Checkbox_Click()
I need a macro to disable all cut options (ctrl^x, right click cut, cut button in ribbon above), disable drag and drop, but still allow copying and pasting (the cutting affects cell references). I've already locked the spreadsheet, but users need to be able to input information and paste information in from other workbooks. This code must also only apply to THIS WORKBOOK and not affect others. Please help with a macro for this, as well as where to paste and how to properly configure macro security settings. I'm a big excel user, but this is my first time ever with VB and macros so talk to me like I'm dumb! I've pasted links to the two codes I tried, and I think one of them enabled a macro that affected all workbooks and now whatever code I put in won't save upon re-opening. It's there when I navigate to it, but it is ineffective like it's not even there. In macro security, I've enabled all macros and have the "trust VB programming" box checked. So maybe do some damage control before re-programming. I am getting a new computer in less than a month, but I want to be able to try out the code and have it work first, and I don't want to transfer the harmful code to the new computer.
P.S. This first code allows copying and cutting, but then just disables pasting, which is not what I want. The second one works great, but disables the right click menu altogether, which is no good either. And neither allow for pasting from the outside. And this is for moderate excel users, they won't try to erase the macro. I just need to keep them from making mistakes with cutting.
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.
I am attempting to modify a spreadsheet so that it will enable a range on Sheet3 (I9:K42) if a check box is checked on Sheet2. If it is not checked, it will lock that range on Sheet 3 and grey (or gray, if you prefer) out that range.
I have collected some data from survey respondents, and I have the following array formula:
What I'd like to do is make the 3rd criterion -- $H$1:$H$400="american" -- dependent on whether the string value in cell A1 ("Evaluate Americans only?") is "yes" or "no".
Because, my actual situation is considerably more complex (see below), I'm looking to insert a test within the MIN array formula to check the value of A1, and calculate the answer accordingly.
I'm aware that I could theoretically create two array arguments (one with & one without the American test), and place them inside an IF function that tests the value of A1. However that isn't practical for my real-world situation...
I occasionally see array formulas with all sorts of symbols that I don't really understand in the array context (such as * and | and . ), and I'm wondering if one of those magic symbols might be the doorway to my solution.
I am creating a form that performs several different functions. I would like to force a sequence of these functions by enabling/disabling the controls based on a variable.
For example, a form as two buttons Button1 and Button2. By default, Button1 is ENABLED and Button2 is DISABLED. When Button1 is clicked, a macro is run, where an Enable_Button2variable is initialized to FALSE. The last line of the macro sets the Enable_Button2 variable to TRUE. Then, because Enable_Button2 is now TRUE, Button2 then becomes ENABLED.
I am trying to apply this strategy to a ComboBox, ListBox and CommandButtons. I'm not sure what event to trigger on to poll the Enable_Button2 to enable/disable the control.
I'm currently building an Excel database. This database has a few comboboxes and checkboxes that are tied to each other. If I select the combobox option of "Years", the "Quarters" combobox must be greyed out. In addition depending on which option is chosen, the relevant check boxes must be enabeled or disabled. I've written some code which runs fine, until I try and activate another macro button or if I add and rename a sheet(which is not linked to anything). What should I do? Here is a sample of my code. I have a feeling it's really obviouse but I cant see it..
The user form consists of 2 pages. The second page can only be accessed from a control button on the first page (much like the next button on a wizard). I have disabled this button. I have 4 check boxes on the page and want the button to be enabled when any one of these is checked.
I managed to figure out the code for enabling the button any one box is checked:
I am trying to enable a command button on opening the Workbook, However it dosent work. I have placed the command button on the worksheet. Programatically it gets disabled on clicking it once. So i want it to be reactivated on reopening the Workbook.
I have a question concerning Macros and the Disable/Enable prompt. My boss has a spreadsheet which has been used for years and he recently wanted to and did remove the macros from the spreadsheet (they were no longer necessary), but the disable/enable prompt still appears when the spreadsheet is opened. I replicated this in a test spreadsheet with a simple insert line macro and received the same results. Is there a way to remove the macros and the disable/enable prompt once they are removed? I know about setting the security to low to not see the prompt, but I would think that once the macros are deleted, the prompt should not appear any more.
I have a fairly straightforward UserForm with 4 listboxes and 4 option textboxes (the textboxes do not need to be a part of the validation I'm needing). I then have a command button that I want to be enabled ONLY if ANY of the 4 Listboxes have a selection. I've tried the "Change" event code below and it works upon the first selection of any listbox item.
However, if the user de-selects all selections in the listboxes (i.e. they are all unchecked), the command button remains enabled. I need the validation logic to enable/disable the button to persist as long as the user has the form open and if there is not a selection in ANY of the listboxes. The reason being is that if they click the command button it will update the cells in the worksheet, which if empty may overwrite previous work completed with blank cells.
I have a User Form which i want to use in such a way that editing the worksheet directly is not disabled while the userform is running. I would also like to use the right button mouse menu(cut, cpy,paste) while i am using the user form. I am using two Monitors with my PC and i want to work with User Form on one monitor being able to edit worksheet without having to close my User Form.
In reference to my other topci here: Userform Error
In this workbook I have successfully made it act like a userform calculator, the user does not ever see the actual sheets in the workbook, their only interface is the Userform calculator I created.
This is exactly how I want it, they do not need to see the sheets, nor do I want them to.
This leads me only to my next problem... Some of the users obviously wont have Macros automatically enabled, what I am wondering is, is there a way to put the normal "Enable Macros" button which appears along the top of a macro containing workbook when opened, I want to put this button into a userform like display without showing the workbook at all.
So here the process I envision:
1. User double clicks the file 2. It opens and automatically goes invisable (like it does already) 3. If the user does not have macro enabled, a userform like box appears and says "Please enable Marcros to user" with a button below for "Enable" and "Exit" 4. If exit is pressed excel closes 5. If enabled is pressed Macros are enabled and then they will automatically see my calculator userform like normal.
As you see, at no point do I want them to see excel or a workbook, just userforms so its not like they are using excel at all.
I have searched around the net and found a few ideas to tackle this, mainly one that has a "Prompt" workbook that shows when macros are disabled, but that is not ideal for me. However perhaps I could just edit this "prompt" code thing for my situation?
Here is the prompt sheet code I talked about:
Code: Option Explicit Private Sub Workbook_Open() With Application
How to use:
Open an Excel workbook Select Tools/Macro/Visual Basic Editor in the VBE window, select View/Project ExplorerSelect the This Workbook module Copy and paste the code above into this ModuleNow select File/Close and Return To Microsoft Excel Don't forget to save your changes...
I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.
I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.
No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?
