I have a workbook in excel 2003 which I had been running the following macros (listed below). We recently upgraded to Excel 07, and neither are working. When I try to run them, the "debug" option highlights the following line in the sort macro "Range("A2:z" & lastcell).Sort key1:=.Columns(1)". This is driving me crazy, as the macros worked perfectly under the older version of Microsoft. Is there an issue with crossfunctionality between '03 and '07'.
Private Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal target As Excel.Range) If target.Column = 1 Then ThisRow = target.Row startRow = 1 i = 1 Set ws = ActiveSheet maxRow = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row maxCol = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Column ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone Do While i
I've got a spread sheet at work that is shared between 4 people. It's password protected and its been protected so only four of us can edit it. It was working fine until yesterday for no reason the auto filter stopped working. The drop down arrows are still there but nothing happens when you click on them?
The sheet was made on excel 2003 but one of the users uses the newer excel which we will all eventually get.
I have selected a range of multiple rows and columns. I can change the alignment, cell color, where border lines appear, and the color of border lines.
However, I can not change the border line style. No matter what style I select, when drawn on the sheet it apppear as a thin solid line. I've tried all the dashed/dotted line options, but they appear to have no effect.
Ultimately, I want to color alternating rows of cells, and (since coloring hides grid lines) I want to add border lines the same color and style as the hidden grid lines.
I need a function to work out what the date will be 45 WORKING days after today(), this function needs to exclude Saturdays, Sundays and any Public Holidays i.e. there could be either 10 or 12 weekend days added into the calculation depending on when today() is plus any additional Public Holidays.
I am using Excel 2003 although it will need to work in Excel 2010 shortly.
On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.
Some of my Excel files work perfectly in terms of undo/redo, while others simply cannot use that feature. I took a stroll through the internet looking for the answer, but the issues that I found seemed to point to the application losing its ability, which was resolved with a registry edit/update/change. I don't think that's the case here because I CAN undo is SOME documents.
After some investigation with my problem documents I have found that THIS Macro is the one thing all my undo-free documents have in common: [URL]
Undo / Redo - they do NOT work properly after a save. Before a save, its great - I can undo / redo many many changes.
After a save, I can only undo 2 changes, but the worst thing is it ONLY REDOES ONE of them.
I work by saving very regularly, then I go and look at something on the sheet, and then use Undo / Redo to get back to where I was last updating the sheet and see what I had just been working on, especially if its a few minutes in between.
However, when I do that now, it undoes my last change, but the redo has been lost. So I do:
change, save, undo, redo
and it just doesn't do the redo. The redo button is greyed out.
If I do:
change, change, save, undo, undo, redo, redo
the first redo works, and the second fails as the redo has been lost.
It seems pretty basic that undo / redo should be symmetrical but they aren't, at least now.
I would rather just not have undo after save at all than this broken version.
Why are they putting so much stuff in Excel but they can't even get one of the most basic parts of spreadsheets correct - such as undo / redo, and the ability to open independent spreadsheets without having to change things in the registry (which I have had to do so I can work on two spreadsheets in a semi-sane fashion, undo being shared across your sheets otherwise). MS needs a back to basics...
A coworker just ran something by me that i'm quite frankly baffled by. After running a macro, the undo function becomes disabled up to the point of when the macro was ran. I've done a quick search through the forums and can't seem to find this question so i thought i'd ask.
Is there an option to toggle somewhere or 3rd party addon that keeps Undo enabled after running a macro? On a similar topic for my own curiosity, what's the reason that it disables?
I managed to implement a macro that adds a time/date stamp in Column A when any of the subsequent cells in that row are changed. With this now working, I really need the ability to restore the undo history in case a change to the data needs to be reverted.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim c As Range Application.EnableEvents = False For Each c In Target If c.Column > 1 And c.Column < 21 Then Cells(c.Row, 1) = Now End If Next c Application.EnableEvents = True End Sub
When you hit the enter button, it should jump to the cell below the one you currently have selected. Well, mine doesn't do that anymore? My tab works fine to go to the cell to the left, but enter just keeps the current cell selected. I know it isn't the Keyboard, b/c it works for every other app. What have I disabled/enabled to cause this? This happens with both the "return" enter button and the enter on the number pad. As of right now, either a mouse click or the down arrow is the only way for me to jump to the next cell.
I have constructed a macro, (with lots of help from the fine people on this site), and have distributed it to several people in the company. The macro was written in Excel 2003, and runs perfectly on all the machines running Excel 2003, but persons using Excel 2000 are getting a runtime error, variable not defined.
Is there a trick to getting a macro to run in both versions of Excel?
I have an Excel 2003 file that contains hyperlinks to OneNote notebooks on a Sharepoint site. An Excel macro looks for these links and determines the full hyperlink address which is then assigned to a variable. An Outlook message is generated which includes the hyperlinks.
The hyperlinks work in the Excel file. I can also copy them from OneNote and manually paste them into an Outlook message and they work. However, when I obtain their full address and transfer that to the email through code, the links do not work. The hyperlink address from OneNote starts with "onenote:http" which is not recognized as a link.
If I can do this manually, there must be a way to do this with vba. Are there characters I need to include in the OneNote hyperlink address to make this work? Is there another way to transfer the working link from Excel to Outlook?
A Worksheet_Change macro in Sheet1 changes the font colour if the target is cell(1,1). So, if I change the value of cell(1,1), it will become red. But then I cannot change it back to the original value because the undo button is not active anymore. And what if I changed cell(1,1) by mistake instead of cell(2,1), and I want to put it back to the original value?
I have a database in excel which I want only selected users to have edit rights & others should have readonly rights. I have written the following code where a pop up would appear in selected cells warning user for editing the said cell. What I want is when a user clicks yes he should be able to edit it & when he clicks no the cell should get protected.
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range) Dim rTriggerCell As Range If Not Intersect(Target, Range("D1:D100")) Is Nothing Then Set rTriggerCell = Target Application.EnableEvents = True If MsgBox("Edit Cell?", vbYesNo) End If On Error Goto 0 Exit Sub End If
Is there a structure inside of Excel which keeps track of all the actions taken by a user (something that would presumably be used to allow for an undo sequence)? If so, is there a way to get access to it?
I'm working on a massive Excel sheet which admittedly uses tons of macros, comboboxes and pivot tables. My issue at the moment is that I have no idea why Excel is pasteing values from specific sheets into the current sheet, when I click on 'Undo'. I've only been able to replicate it when i copy, paste and then undo. I've removed code relating to those sheets and it still does it. I also have no macro's using Ctrl+z. The sheet, whose values it's pasting, does use comboboxes. I have changed the linked cell property in Excel to the "SheetName"!"Cell". It still does this. The odd thing is that it doesn't do it to new workbooks or new sheets.
