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?

Excel 2007 :: How To Detect Macro Security Level

Jul 24, 2014

is it possible through vba code to determine the macro security level of Excel 2007 and inform the user. I tried the code below , it is executed when the workbook is opened, but it doesn't work.The code below is executed only when the macro security level is "Low". My goal is at least to inform , with a msgbox function, to change manually the security level.

Code:

Dim secAutomation As MsoAutomationSecurity
Dim zLevel
As String
secAutomation = Application.AutomationSecurity
Select Case secAutomation

[Code]....

Security Alert This File Contains Encrypted Macros...

Mar 3, 2007

I just loaded Excel 2007, and then opened a workbook I wrote that made pretty extensive use of macros and code. I knew enough to first set up Excel via the "Trust Center" to allow ALL macros to run, against MS's, or more likely against MS's lawyer's, recommendations. btw, does anyone have a clue as to what "Trust access to the VBA project module" is all about? Apparently MS doesn't, for I have searched Help and the KB for it in vain. Anyway, I brought the old xls workbook in, then saved it as a macro-enabled spreadsheet, .xlsm. Then I open it, and uhg, a most distasteful surprise. Even though I specifically went in and set Excel to run all freaking macros, someone at MS has decided I am too stoooopid to make this decision, and all macros have been automatically disabled. OK, so let us click where it says "Options" on this warning bar.

A window pops up telling me that this file contains encrypted macros that have been disabled...". Do a search on that, again, MS, MS kb, even Google, and you are not going to find it (In quotes). There is ONE freaking option with a radio button now, telling me "Help protect me from unknown content" - again, I try a Google search, an MS search and an MS kb search... nothing directly addressing it; but I do the logical intuitive thing - there is a selected radio button there, so click it to unselect it. Click the idiot thing until the cows come home, darn it, it won't do a thing! I even tried an Alt-p as they have the "p" underlined - all that does is select the statement, it remains selected, tap the space bar, hit the space bar, stand on the space bar... First they disable all the macros. OK, I can live with going in and fixing that, but then deciding that I am too dumb to make that choice so don't allow me to turn them on in my own freaking code? Yes, it has been several hours and I am still pissed off beyond belief.

Excel 2007 :: Security Notice Prompt

Apr 15, 2013

I am using excel 2007 to open files with macros embedded. Most of the time, I would receive the security notice in the ribbon but sometimes the notice would appear as a prompt as with excel 2003.

How can I set it up so I would always have the prompt instead of the message in the ribbon. The reason is that with the one in the ribbon, new users to 2007 often fail to activate the macro for the the file to work properly. With the prompt, users have to either enable or disable the macro to view the file.

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.

2007 Enable Macro's

Jul 10, 2007

I have converted an Excel file from 2003 to 2007. The file now has a .xlsm extension as it contains macros. I have "enabled all macros" and "trusted access to the VBA project object model". Whilst open, I have tested the macro buttons and they work.

I then close the file and re-open it, and the macro's will not work. A message appears along the lines of "macros are anabled" or "macro is not found". I have double-checked the settings and everything appears normal.

For i =1 to Len(Uncvrtdtxt)

VBScript To Call Excel Macro - Loss Of Tab Functionality?

Aug 29, 2013

I am trying to open an Excel Workbook which in turn will automatically run a macro on loading which is a Userform. The Userform will contain 3 boxes, just some simple text boxes.

I don't want the Excel Workbook to show in the background, so I have opted to go for a VBScript to call the Excel Application and open the spreadsheet...

I have a current .vbs script which is as follows...

Code:
Option Explicit
On Error Resume Next
ExcelMacroExample

[Code]....

This works fine, there is no workbook showing and the userform opens as expected. The problem is, I lose the functionality to tab between the boxes. When opening the Userform directly in Excel,

Enable/disable A Criterion WITHIN An Array Formula (2007)

Jun 13, 2009

I have collected some data from survey respondents, and I have the following array formula:

=MIN(

IF($C$1:$C$400="happy",

IF($G$1:$G$400="tall",

IF($H$1:$H$400="american",

$F$1:$F$400

))))

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.

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?

Macro To Delete Vba Code - Macro Security Warning

Feb 7, 2008

I have recently grabbed the very helpful "Macro to delete VBA code" from this site, and it's working but with one small problem.

My worksheet runs a lot of code, then deletes all macro code and saves itself.

The problem is the next time i open I still get the macro security warning!

I've checked thoroughly and there is definatley no vba left anywhere.

If I open the document, enable macros, and save it, then open it again, I no longer get the warning.

My problem is that i am not the only person who will use this sheet, if They click the control button by mistake they will clear their work and you cannot undo it. I was wondering if i could make it ask "are you sure" kind of like the save option when closing an unsaved document.

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 ?
