Ensure Macro Code Applies To Correct Sheet & Workbook
I am trying to write some code that is linked to a Command button. The code in the command button is in my workbook called "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" but then I have another workbook called "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls" that I want to do some work with - namely delete blank columns and it is here that I am having the problem.
My problem is this: my code module is contained in my project "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" and the columns that I want deleted are in the "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls". Now even though I believe I have activated the "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls" workbook the action, that of deleting the blank columns is performed on the "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" workbook. Why?? Here is the code that I am using:
'ASK FOR DATE AND SET IT IN THE REPORT
Workbooks("MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls").Worksheets _
("Seg and Non Seg Bank Summary"). Range("I1") = Application.InputBox("PLEASE ENTER REPORT DATE IN THE DD/MM/YYYY FORMAT")
'ACTIVATE MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY
Workbooks("MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls"). Sheets("Seg and Non Seg").Activate

Ensure Code Acts Upon Correct Sheet
I have a workbook that starts off with the following sheets:
MAIN_PAGE - Where filter criteria is selected via checkbox and PLOT button
RAW_DATA - unfiltered raw data
After running a series of macros tied to the PLOT button, two new sheets are created:
FILTERED_DATA(HIDDEN) - where the filter criteria from the MAIN_PAGE is applied, and the filtered data is stored.
CHART - The plot of the hidden FILTER_DATA sheet.
Every time the PLOT button is pressed, the the macro searches for the FILTERED_DATA and CHART sheets, and if present, clears and overwrittes with the new appropriately filted data. This works and suits the user's needs 95% of the time. However....
If the user decides to keep the old CHART and FILTER_DATA as well as the new FILTER_DATA and CHART, I need something to differentiate the two charts and data sheets. My thought was to have the user rename the CHART. The problem is that because the FILTERED_DATA sheet is hidden (and has to stay that way), how can the name change of the CHART be carried over onto the hidden FILTERED_DATA sheet, therefore keeping the plot and it's data in tact? For example, if I append the name CHART with a 1 to make it CHART1, how do I automatically change FILTERED_DATA to FILTERED_DATA1?
Fix Sheet Order So Code References Correct Sheets
I would like to know whether its possible to fix a sheet to always be the second sheet in a work book no matter how many other sheets are added. Currently I have set up macros to add subsequent sheets before the last sheet, so that Sheets("Number 2") remain sheets(2). Is there some way I can lock the first two sheets so that when I reference them in my code as sheets(1) and sheets(2) it will reference the right sheets. Right now I have it set up so that Sheets("Number 2") can be renamed by the user, and data inputted on this sheet, but I require that the user not be able to move this sheet and the sheet preceding it.
Ensure Code Understands Object It Should Relate To
I have written some code that copies certain cells from a spreadsheet constructed form back to a master spreadsheet database. The idea being to prevent users of the form from accessing the database and mucking it up. I write it the long way round and am now trying to modify it to not have to open and close the database everytime BUT whenever I change it I get errors that I think relate to the code not understanding the change of object...

Code Required To Ensure Minimum Of 6 Rows Between Ranges
I use excel 2007 and have a s/s running to 350,000+ rows.
Data is in ranges of 2 to 30 rows with blank row between each range.
Column F numbers the rows in a range (if row 120,000 begins new range then F1200,000 = 1, F120001 = 2, etc).
If there are 2 rows of data in a range then, including blank row, there are 3 rows between this and next range.
What I want to achieve is a minimum of 6 rows between each range.
Does anyone know code that can can achieve this end?
Ensure Active Workbook When File Opened By Windows Scheduler
This code opens a UserForm in the Workbook_Open event when the file is opened. After 10 seconds, the message is supposed to go away if the user doesn't click anything, then macros that follow are supposed to run. It is intended to allow a user to stop the macros. This works when you open the file manually (macro security must be low), you'll see a msgbox pop up after the UserForm goes away.
However, when the workbook is opened as a Windows Scheduled Task (Windows/ Control Panel/ Scheduled Tasks), the UserForm does not come to the front of the screen unless a user actually clicks on the window. It just flashes at the bottom indefinitely.
Set Focus, If Thats The Correct Code
I have a userform with several fields located in it. For the most part, it looks like a user information form, Name, Date,, stuff like that. There is a field that the user enters some information, and using the afterUpdate function for the field, it searches to see if the value is unique. The problem is that when I tab from that field, if the value is not unique, I want the cursor placed back in that field (textbox). SetFocus doesn't seem to do what I want, unless I am using it incorrectly.

Exporting Macros To Another Workbook From The 'sheet' Code Module

Autofilter Code Failing On Shared Workbook & Protected Sheet
I have a protected worksheet with some macros running on it, and I have been requested to make the workbook shared. Trying to implement this, I keep getting the standard "1004 You cannot use this command on a protected sheet" error when applying an autofilter.
Here is what is making this problem a little tricky:
- As the workbook is shared, I cannot do Protect UserInterfaceOnly because you can't change the protection settings on a shared workbook without unsharing it. Needless to say, I cannot unshare the workbook.
- When I protect the sheet, I do allow the user to use autofilter. Consequently, Sheet.Protection.AllowFiltering and Sheet.EnableAutofilter both are on. Still, I keep getting the error.
The failing line of code is:
shData. Range("_filterDataBase").AutoFilter lngField, strArg
where shData is the codename of the sheet, lngField is the number of the field and strArg is the filtering criteria.
My guess is, that the error comes from the fact that (for some silly reason) in VBA the .AutoFilter method is used to create a new filter, not only to use an existing one. The members of Sheet.AutoFilter.Filters collection are read-only, and cannot be used to modify the existing filter.

Make Workbook Open- Open Correct Month Workbook
I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook

dTime = Time
If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _
dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then

Save Workbook As CSV Macro Code
I want is a Macro that will save the file as .csv, with the same filename and location as the original (just in csv format). A hotkey would be quite handy for this. I tried using the macro recorder and fiddled around with the code a bit but my programming knowledge is quite limited and I ended up with something that doesn't quite work as i'd like. I'm sure this would only take a few seconds to code for an experienced user, which is why I post here. I would post my attempt at doing it myself but i'm on a computer that doesn't have excel at the moment.

Add A Sheet To Workbook Macro
I have a workbook where I have a button to add a sheet, this works fine except for a formula that the macro edits on every sheet so we can have a running total quantity for the project. The problems occurs if the user changes the name of the last sheet in the workbook, then adds a sheet then the formula gets a reference error. The sheets are named 1 , 2 ,3 and so on, but it is nice to be able to change tha name of the sheet to the date.
Link Cells To Chosen Workbook Macro Code
I am trying to write a code in VBA to collect data from several weekly workbooks, and list them up in a monthly workbook.
These weekly workbooks change names depending on the week, for example, we have:
Report week 1.xls
Report week 2.xls
Report week 3.xls
Report week 4.xls
Each report has the same layout, so the data I want will be in the same cells. However, as the report names change as the weeks in the year go on, I can't write the code for weeks 1-4 as they will not work with week 5 onwards!
I have found out how to chose a file of my choice using:
Dim FInfo As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant
' Set up list of file filters
FInfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"
' Display *.* by default
FilterIndex = 5 ......................
VB Code/Macro Printing With Page End Pulled From Workbook
I have a worksheet that changes in length. There is a formula that calculates how many pages the sheet will be. The also is a print button on the sheet that will print a coversheet "Sheets("Title")" and then it is supposed to print the data on the second sheet. Below the code I have so far... I know I am missing something, but knowing very little about macros I just can't seem to figure it out.

Macro: Copy A Sheet In A Workbook
I have been able to figure out how to copy a sheet in a workbook and make x amount of copies of it in said workbook.
Now...I have a list of names on a sheet named Roster. The list of names reside in column A2-A181.
I need to figure out how to make a new sheet with one name from the list in Roster and have the tab named after the person on the sheet.
The list is in alphabetical order and the sheets should remain as such.
In A2 of each *new sheet*, there should be a name from the Roster sheet, but never a duplicate name.
Why Is This An Error In Sheet Code But Not As Macro

Insert Sheet & Name Macro Code
I am trying to insert 50 tabs (at different points in time during a macro) that each has a state abbreviation. I know how to get the macro to add a tab, but to name it, it wants to select " Sheet 4". The problem with this is, the tab that was created might be sheet 15 or sheet 1, and I need it to be able to name the tab no matter what sheet # it is.
Run Macro Code When New Sheet Added
I have code in the NewSheet event of ThisWorkbook which tracks new sheets being added. But when a worksheet is added by copying an existing worksheet this event doesn't seem to be triggered. Buy logically a new sheet has been added to the workbook so the event should be triggered. Is this a design flaw or am I missing something?
Add Vlookup, With Variables, To Cell To Reference Another Workbook Via Macro Code
I am trying to use VB to vlookup between to workbooks
1. Make active workbook WBK1
2. Make workbook being open WBK2
3. Copy and Paste between WBK1 and WBK2
4. Have a vlookup in WBK1 and bring in the values from WBK2
5. Close WKB2
6. Copy, Paste, and transpose values in wkb1 within wkb1
The script works fine until it reaches the vlookup step. I have used the vlookup by itself without the copy and paste code successfully but when I combine the two it provides me with the error 9. Subscript out of range.
Macro Code To Split A Sheet Into New Files
I have a huge data which needs to be divided and distributed to team members. What i want to achieve is to split, thru macro/VB, the entries in my main file into several files, say by 50s. I attached files for reference. Whereas, the Dummy.xls is the main file and Book1 & Book2 are the desired output.
Macro To Work On 1 Sheet Not All Sheets In Workbook
Well this excel workbook has lots of sheets each for a specific region eg, Europe, austin etc and also sheets which have relevant data that gets used in the formula.
Now, say for eg lets considered the sheet called austin.
it does the calculations on the headcount needed for call center.
so the columns refer to a formula called gets() which then calls the erlanc function.
Now the problem here is this gets() function takes a value called calc
and this calc just a cell in one of the sheets called table. Now if I change the headcount value in the austin sheet nothing happens. Then I need to change the value of calc cell say make it to 5 or 6 and hit enter. It starts calulating the values to forecast thye headcount, but it does so for all the sheets . so it is taking a lot of time.
how to get make it run only for one sheet.
Change Sheet Macro Name In A New Copied Workbook.
I have a workbook, 'MyWb.xls' and a sheet with buttons to which I attach some sheet macros. When I assign a macro to a button I pick the appropriate reference, e.g. Sheet2.MyMacro, and this gets recorded by default as MyWb.xls!Sheet2.MyMacro
When I create a new single sheet workbook with the instruction ActiveSheet.Copy, I end up with a new workbook, say 'Book2' along with the buttons as expected. However the macros attached to the buttons still refer to the MyWB.xls file and not the new 'Book2.xls'. As part of the process of creating the new book I've tried redefining the macro with the instruction
Add Formula Via Macro Code With Variable As Sheet Name
I have a front sheet with a list of all the sheets in the workbook in column A.
In column B I need to use the counta function to count the number of entries in the corresponding sheet to column A.
As there are 70 sheets I'd thought I'd use a Macro but I'm having great difficulties. I've done a search but can't find what I'm looking for.
So heres part of my code (it uses loops etc which I've managed but this just errors)
cell.Offset(0, 1).FormulaR1C1 = "=counta(" & str2&" C[-1])-1"
The str2 is the string name to reference the sheet in the formula (for example sheet1), I can't figure out how to enter this into the code so it works and is accepted.
Protect Sheet But Allow Macro Code To Modify
I am trying to design a tool which dynamically results in different cells depending on users inputs. Yet, I am willing to protect most of the cells to avoid any user involuntarily (or voluntarily!) modifying the formulas/contents of the calculated (and locked) cells. Is there any way to protect my sheets, allowing only a certain macro to modify the locked and protected cells?
Add Button To Sheet & Assign Macro Code
how I can write code to create a button on a worksheets and then link to another subprocedure.
I tried recording a macro and this is what excel so eloquently gave me:
ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(384.75, 60.75, 79.5, 39.75).Select
Selection.OnAction = "CreateImport"
Selection.Characters.Text = "Parse Deposits for Import"
With Selection.Characters(Start:=1, Length:=25).Font
. Name = "Arial"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 10
.Strikethrough = False
.Superscript = False
.Subscript = False
.OutlineFont = False
.Shadow = False
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.TintAndShade = 0
.ThemeFont = xlThemeFontNone
This works fine, my only problem is if the button that is created is actually named Button2 or 3, etc. Is there a way to assign the new button to a variable, or would it be an object? this way it wouldn't matter what it was named.
Pasting Charts Between 2 Instances Copies Macro Code Into Hidden Workbook
Consider two instances of Excel - one with a workbook containing a chart and some VBA code, the other containing a blank workbook. When I paste a chart from the first instance of Excel to the other, all the VBA code from the original workbook is also pasted into a new third hidden workbook in the second instance of Excel! If that weren't weird enough ON WINDOWS XP (but not Windows 2000) if the VBA code included WorkbookOpen or AutoOpen this code is executed in the second instance of Excel, which of course fails if it references sheets that only existed in the workbook open in the first instance of Excel! This is the first time I've seen the same version of Excel do different things on different versions of Windows! Example attached - What's going on!? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;...note: this does not happen when pasting charts between workbooks open in the SAME instance of Excel
Macro Not Looping To Correct Position
I'm having trouble with a macro not looping back to the right place. The macro runs fine but is looping back to the very beginning instead of to the DO WHILE point which is the bit I would like to loop through.

I would link this macro to a button in excel 2002. I have try the following but it doesnt work
Would it be possible that the button (first) works (second) understand whether or not protect / unprotected and do the opposite?

Accidently Executing A Macro On The Wrong Sheet Within A Workbook
When running a macro is there a way you can execute code on another sheet within a workbook without being in the original sheet?
I seem to have a problem if I accidentally run a macro not on the original sheet whereby the code is executed and fills over data not in the desired sheet and the previous cells information is lost and the only way to fix the problem is to close the workbook and re-open a saved copy as you can't undo?
