Error Inserting Rows Cannot Shift Objects Off Sheet

Mar 1, 2007

I am running excel 2007 and I have 23 worksheets in a workbook. I have no links or hidden rows or colums. I have no merged cells or comments. My biggest sheet is A1:

AW8096. I use VB macros to add lines and move data from one set of workbooks to this one.

I have built several sheets using this proceedure.

All of a sudden I get the error "Cannot shift objects off sheet" when I run
a routine I have 50,000 times. This even happens on new blank sheet so I know its' not on the sheet.

I have checked to make sure there are no hidden comments, row or columns. I have deleted most of the worksheets and I still get the error. I have made copies of the workbook and used different file types to save it. I can create a new black sheet in the workbook that is empty and the same thing happens.

The only way I can get it to work is to creat a new blank workbook and copy and paste the sheets into the new workbook. Yes I have serched the FAQ and knowledge base and tried all of those fixes as well.

I'm trying to hide a few columns on my spreadsheet. I'm getting a "cannot shift objects off sheet" error message 2010 Excel program. I never had trouble with my 2003 excel.

Cannot Shift Nonblank Cells Off The Worksheet When Inserting Row/column

Jul 12, 2006

When I try to insert a row, Excel displays the warning "cannot shift nonblank cells off the worksheet". I understand what the warning means but there are no nonblank cells at the bottom of my worksheet! Just to be sure, I have selected the bottom-most rows, cleared them, deleted them, and everything else I can think of. The warning still appears.

Fixed Objects May Move Error With AutoFilter

May 17, 2008

Does anyone know the maximum number of rows an autofilter can handle? I have a spreadsheet at work that started to crash at approximately 1500 - 2000 rows. The autofilter would give a weird error "Fixed objects may move" and then the filter would get rid of half the information and the filter arrows would show on a random row (rather than on the title).

I had heard a rumor that autofilter can only handle so many rows of data, but couldn't find where the cutoff point is. The spreadsheet is also shared between multiple people, so i'm sure that adds to it. And yes I know that Excel isnt' supposed to be kept open by multiple people and used as a database,

Print Color Objects But Not Objects That Are Highlighted / Colored For Input And Grids?

Dec 27, 2013

So I'm creating a grid worksheet for engineering calculations and I have a couple questions about the best way to do it. I've been messing with excel for my calcs for about a decade now, and I every once in a while I try and improve them.

First: I will have several input areas that will either be colored text or shaded background (either works for me). I don't want these 'input required' objects to print as color, just black. But I want my logo at the sheet top to print as color. I've only found ways to not print any color. Can I print the logo as color and the 'input required' stuff as black?

Second: When I do calcs by hand, I write them out on 10x10 grid paper. Each 10x10 grid is one inch. In the past I've created this grid out of the cells, which works. I frequently need to change formulas around though, and each time I do this, I end up needing to mess with the grid cells also. Is there a way to create the grid and have it in the background so it doesn't need to be adjusted each time I change formulas? I wan't the grids to print, and also want to see them on the screen, as I sometimes draw simple objects along with the formulas.

Excel Cannot Copy Objects To Another Sheet

Apr 5, 2013

I have a big macro that runs in everyone's PC except mine. Once I debug it, it shows that it stocked at copying the objects from a template sheet to another sheet. When I try doing it manually, I still can not copy the objects to another sheet. It copies the sheet but except the objects in it. Is it related to my settings?

Allow Editing Objects On Protected Sheet

Dec 12, 2007

I am using a VBA script to protect my workbook and allow grouping on workbook open:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
With Sheet1
.Protect Password:="", UserInterfaceOnly:=True
.EnableOutlining = True
End With

How can I enable "Edit Objects" with this? I want the user to be able to edit comments as well. I am NOT looking to do this by checking the box when I protect a sheet; this effect is gone once the book is opened again, and the above macro runs.

Lookup Wage Calculations (calculate Pay Per Shift Dependant On The Type Of Shift)

Dec 1, 2009

I have the basics set up, but need to work out how to make it calculate my pay per shift dependant on the type of shift i have worked.

I have attached a screen shot of the current page,

In it i have currently used validation drop boxes for the location and worked columns with tables just to one side of the sheet.

The shift pay is the column i am having trouble with.

I would like it to change dependant on what is selected in the 'worked' column.
For most things it should just display basic plus holiday, however if supervisor is selcted in the work column, it should display basic plus holiday plus supervisor.

Calculate Pay For Shift Work With Different Rates Based On Shift Hours

Apr 11, 2008

a person works for certain hours and get paid according to the hours worked either by day or by night or a mix of both. Day payment is $8 when worked between 08:00 and 19:59 , night payment is $12 when worked between 20:00 and 07:59. The excel cell are formatted as datetime with yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm , the function works fine in getting the time information and checking whether the whole work is all day or all night , yet the if-then-else statements for calculation seems to be wrong!!


start = 2008-01-01 09:15 , end = 2008-01-01 11:40 , all day as it is between 08:00 and 20:00 and cost = 8/hr = 19.333

start = 2008-01-03 21:05 , end = 2008-01-04 02:05 , all night as it is between 20:00 and 08:00 and cost = 12/hr = 60.000

start = 2008-02-02 19:00 , end = 2008-02-02 20:05 , cost = 9.000 as 1 hour day = 8.000 plus 5minutes night = 1.000

Function prod(st As Date, en As Date) As Double
Dim shour As Integer
Dim smin As Integer
Dim ehour As Integer
Dim emin As Integer
Dim stod As String
Dim etod As String
pday = 8
pnight = 12
shour = Hour(st)
smin = Minute(st) + shour * 60
If (shour >= 8 & shour < 20) Then
stod = "day"
stod = "night"
End If
ehour = Hour(en)
emin = Minute(en) + ehour * 60
If (ehour >= 8 & ehour < 20) Then.................

Macro To Shift Rows Up And Down

Oct 12, 2011

how to write a macro where I can select a row or rows (adjacent) press a button, and the secelected row(s) will shift down one row every time the button is pressed. I also need another button with a macro that shifts the row(s) up one row at a time. The following code works for shifting selected row(s) up, but I can't figure out how to shift multiple rows down a row at a time.


Sub RowUp()
Selection.Offset(-1, 0).Insert Shift:=xlDown
Selection.Offset(-1, 0).Select

Compare Dates In Rows - Delete Then Shift Up

Mar 14, 2012

I am fitting 2 sets of data to match eachother. I want to have as much data as possible but only for the same dates of each dataset.

I have 4 coloumns.
Dataset 1: A is date B is data
Dataset 2: C is date D is data

I want to compare A vs B one row at a time. If they are not similar it should delete and shift up the values in A+B or C+D according to the lowest value (date) of A vs B.

Remember that if the macro just deleted and shifted up it should compare the same (undeleted) value against the new value that just shifted up in the other coloumn.

Prevent Linked Cells Showing Error When Deleting Rows On Other Sheet

I want to establish a link from my worksheets. Using the conventional link method I was able to link the values from my first worksheet to the second worksheet. My problem is when I delete a particular row. The reference of the second worksheet will have an error #REF! since I deleted those cells. Is there any way that I can link my two worksheets without any error that even if I deleted a particular cell/row the reference is still intact?

Insert Static Timestamp But Receive Runtime Error When Deleting Rows In Sheet

May 20, 2013

The code below works nicely to insert a time stamp in column B when the user selects "Yes" in the corresponding cell in column A. The problem is if I try to delete any rows or clear the contents of the cells I receive a "Run-time Error 13 - Type mismatch." If I delete the contents of the cells one at a time I do not receive the error. What I am trying to do is the user has a list of items to select from in column A. Only if "Yes" is selected I want the time stamp in column B to appear.

Code is below.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)

With Target
If .Value "Yes" Then Exit Sub

If Not Intersect(Range("A1:A50"), .Cells) Is Nothing Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
With .Offset(0, 1)

Macro To Convert Text To Rows - Inserting Rows

Mar 27, 2013

I have cells (all in one column) containing text separated by commas e.g. (SD-299, SD-200, SD-300)

I am trying to transpose the text in these cells into rows.

Sub SplitAndTranspose()
Dim N() As String
N = Split(ActiveCell, ", ")
ActiveCell.Resize(UBound(N) + 1) = WorksheetFunction.Transpose(N)
End Sub

The problem with that is that when transposing it does not shift the cells down (/ insert new rows) so I lose the data already in the cells underneath.

Also, that macro would only apply to one cell I would like to be able to apply it all the data in the specific column on my Sheet.

Inserting New Rows / Copying From Additional Rows

May 25, 2013

I'm not great anyways with VBA Macro.Effectively, here is my issue. I have a spreadsheet which is really badly designed.In one column I have multiple numbers separated by a comma. I need this data separated into new individual rows, but at the same time, copying the data in the other columns in that row to the new row.

Example of what I have:

Test 1 54 email1
Test 2 32, 343, 63, 34 email2
Test 3 4934, 5342 email 3

What I need:

Test 1 54 email1
Test 2 32 email2
Test 2 343 email2
Test 2 63 email2
Test 2 34 email2
Test 3 4934 email3
Test 3 5342 email3

I have have the following code below which paste everything into a new column and into a new row, but the problem I have is that it does not push the other rows data down, nor does it copy the 1st rows data (for that data set) into the new rows created.

Option Explicit
Sub Macro1()
Dim fromCol As String
Dim toCol As String
Dim fromRow As String
Dim toRow As String
Dim inVal As String
Dim outVal As String

[Code] ........

The amount of rows I have, so this manually (text to column, then transcoding etc) it out of the questions (i have 1000 rows of this!)
