Excel 2007 :: Creating Workbooks With Macros That Work On Other PCs
Apr 20, 2012
I have written a 2007 workbook which contains 4 simple macros. One of the macros automates the process of saving the print range as a .pdf file. It works fine on my pc but when I send it to others to use, when they try the macros, they all return a 1004 runtime error.
I've created a spreadsheet at work that has two summary tabs which contain hyperlinks to around 30 separate sheet tabs.
On each sheet tab there is a list of unique values in column A (and other information relating to each value in columns B to D which are repeated for more than one unique value). In column E, users enter a test script name against each unique value they wish to 'reserve', and the macro picks out the unique test script names and via the COUNTIF formula counts the frequency of each test script name for each of the different values in column B.
My problem is that the macro seems to work fine if the workbook is not shared, but errors if the workbook is saved as shared. The error is 'Run time error 1004 - Unable to select the MergeCells property of the Range class'.
Here is the macro code:
Sub Get_Policies_Per_Script(updCol As Long, ShtName As String) Dim rowctr As Long Dim tgtrow As Long
Const ppsformula As String = "=COUNTIFS($A$3:$A$65000,I$24,$E$3:$E$65000,$G"
If updCol = 5 Then 'test name column has been modified
I have an excel file saved as macro-enabled that is perfectly functional and can be opened on my computer (via Security Warning - Enable Macros). The file is saved on another computer, through which I am accessing by a network.
This other computer is unable to run the macros, and when we open the file in excel there is no security warning that pops up (like there is on my computer). I have gone to the Excel Options and entered the trust center settings, and finally the Macro Settings. It is set at Disable all macros with notification. (same for both computers... but on one of the computers there is no security warning that pops up)
We tried enabling all macros (temporarily) and tried re-opening the file and running a macro. We got an error message saying that macros were not enabled.
We also made the file a trusted location and saw no changes.
I have created a macro that a couple of us can run at the end of the day that looks in a preset folder and has whatever .xlsx files in that append to each other creating one .txt file. It then saves that .txt file and runs a batch file that strips off the .txt file extension. This is the format we need the ending file to be in so we can FTP it to another agency.
Myself and another coworker can run it without any problem and it asks us if we want to save the .txt file before it closes it and runs the batch file stripping off the .txt extension. We say yes and it executes as designed. Another coworker runs it and it looks like the files are appending then the window closes. Never prompts him if he wants to save and the file is nowhere to be found. From what I have researched all his excel settings match ours. We are all running the same OS (XP) and version of MS Office (2007). The part of the macro that seems to just be ignored is below:
Then the following batch file runs stripping the .txt file extension:
FOR /R "T:Cash ManagementUnsecured\_Team - DisbursAUTOMATIONInput" %%f IN (*.txt) DO REN "%%f" *.
I have tired removing the ActiveWorkbook.Save command thinking it would default to prompt him to save it but it doesn't.
I inserted a hyperlink into a cell that goes to a web page. It works when the sheet is NOT protected, as soon as I protect the sheet it stops working. How do can I lock the workbook and that cell so nobody can change it but the hyperlink still work?
My company recently upgraded everyone to Microsoft 2010 from 2007 version. I have no substantial VBA skill and left with a VBA code which is supposed to extract a list of outlook emails sitting in a shared mailbox into Excel.
I was using that VBA code in Outlook 2007 and it worked fine but shows the following error when run in Outlook 2010: 'Run-time error '-2147221233 (8004010f)': The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found. Here is part of the code:
It worked after one of the members suggested to "click on any line of this code and press F8 repeatedly until the yellow focus moves to the error line, don't press F8 anymore. Now in immediate window, copy paste each of below lines, press enter after each line. Let us know where the error occur." However, it stop working the next day.
I am attempting to pass a boolean variable between two macros. The SUBMIT macro calls the STATUS macro to do some verifications and the STATUS macro should return the boolean variable RDY back to the SUBMIT macro, but does not.
I am using Excel 2007. Both macros are in the same Module. The STATUS macro is called from several places in the code.
Public Rdy As Boolean Sub Submit() [code] Call Status If Rdy=True then msgbox("You have completed your form") else msgbox ("Not ready") [code] end sub
I recently had a virus on my computer and had to replace it. I had a ton of macros saved in my Personal.xlsb workbook, so I exported those modules and have now imported them to the new Personal.xlsb file. Now for some reason those macros no longer work in other files. Most of them are basic, like I have a macro to paste values or paste formats, etc. but I have some others that are very complex. The macros work fine as long as I am in Personal.xlsb, but if I try to use them in another open workbook I get the "all macros may be disabled or the macro may not be available in this workbook" message. I am using Excel 07 and have verified that macros are enabled.
The easiest way I can describe the scenario I am trying to create, is to use a company list of personnel (my index) and to generate a time-sheet workbook per person based on a pre-populated template. This time-sheet is saved as the persons name and has the persons name entered into cell D:10
I have a workbook which contains two worksheets;
1) An Index sheet which contains a list of names that I wish to use in Q16 downwards (note the length of this list will vary each time I run this)
2) A "template" sheet which I wish to duplicate in new workbooks
3) A second "data" sheet that I wish to copy across in new workbooks
I need a macro that will take the "template" and "data" sheets and copy it into a new workbook, renaming each new workbook to each name in my Index sheet. I also want that same Name to be copied into cell reference D:10 of the "template" each time.
The end result is that I should have a series of new files generated and saved which are named the same as the Index list, with both the "Template" sheet and the "Data" sheet present, with the cell D:10 pre-populated with the Name provided in the "Template" sheet.
Two support staff added data to the same base document. I now have two files that I need to combine into one. Is there a way to merge the two together so that I have one workbook that contains all the information entered by both users? We use Excel 2007.
I am using office 2007 and here is the problem I am facing. I am using a formula and it is based on two columns data. The formula result is at C20:C2400, while the two data columns are at A20:A2400 and B20:B2400. I add one more row of data at A2401 and B2401, I expect the formula result would auto extend to C2401 but it doesn't, nothing happen.
I check that I need to turn on the auto extend check box in option, I check and it is already on.
I recently upgraded from Excel 2003 to 2007, and the worksheet change procedure that i have embedded in my worksheet no longer fires when the criteria are met. If and if I fix it to work in 2007, will it still work in 2003?
Here is my procedure:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngCell As Excel.Range If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) Is Nothing Then For Each rngCell In Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) If rngCell.Value = "BLACK" Then MsgBox "Please select a shading style", , "Shading Style Required" End If Next rngCell End If End Sub
I'm using Excel 2007. When I try to scroll with the mouse wheel, it doesn't do anything. If I hold down the control key and scroll with the mouse, it zooms in and out. So that works fine, but I can't do the basic scrolling up and down the document with the mouse wheel. There is no "Tools, Options" menu in 2007 so I don't even know where to find this type of option. The options available from the Office button are completely different.
I have a column of the date of sales. (several hundred lines long) and each line has the name of the item sold. I need to complete a report showing how many sales of each item per date. Date of sale in one column and the name of the product in another.
I have excel 2007 and I want to record a macro. I have enabled all macros via the Trust Center settings and have even saved the current workbook (created from scratch in 2007) to a macro-enabled version.
But when I click on the 'developer' toolbar, 'record macro' is grayed out.
Had to rebuild my PC's hard disk and reinstall software. Now, whenever I open another workbook via explorer double click, a new instance of Excel starts. If I open another workbook using Excel's menu open, then the workbook opens in the same instance. I've tried a 'Repair' of Office and resetting the default programs to Excel for all Excel related file extension types.
I am building a country ranking model which ranks several different macroeconomic indicators and applies a weighting to each of the indicators. I have an overall ranking column which is an average of all the ranks. The problem is whenever I change any of the individual indicator's weighting it obviously affects the country's overall ranking. Is there a way that the model can automatically "re-sort" the overall rankings without me having to manually click on the sort by smallest to largest filter each time?
"How to create a 'main' macro to control other macros within a workbook". I have my individual macros created. There's one macro for each sheet that searches online data and returns the information. I have one of these per sheet (a total of 20 sheets) since I couldn't find a way to have all 20 macros be on one sheet and still work. My trouble is that whenever I'm on my 'main' sheet and try to run the macro which applies to a 'secondary' sheet, I get an error. I have to select the sheet first, then run the macro and it works. Below is the macro on each sheet.
VB: Sub Holding1() Dim DataSheet As Worksheet Dim EndDate As Date [code].....
I have a client with approximately 4-5000 Excel workbook files that all contain the old Jet connection string and these files do not run under Office 2010 without changing to the newer ACE connection string. It is just too much to open each file and change the connection string.
Is there a way to do a mass change - like global search and replace - the connection strings in the files? I have a text editor that is able to do that but I fear it may mess up the file.
So, We are using Excel 2002 & Excel 2007 and for some reason all of the workbooks that we have open decide to randomly change the fill colours of nearly all the cells. The only reason this is an issue is that a lot of my work envolves me sending reports to clients and from a business perspective this does not look professional at all.
To add to this, once the cells have changed colour, the original colour is no longer available to select.
i make a lot of "trending" files at work where i link a cell to a seperate workbook where all workbooks are in the same folder.
these workbooks all have the same name with the date at the end
example: workbook 06-01-2011 workbook 06-02-2011 all the way to workbook 12-31-2011
usually i use find replace to change the date one at a time, but doing that 365 (x how many cells i have referencing) times is redundant
i have seein INDIRECT of the cell changes but nothing for the workbook name chaning
here is what i am trying to do: ='C:File Path[WorkbookX.xls]Sheet1'!A1 where the X WorkbookX is variable (the date at end of file name)
i have a list of all workbook names or just the dates and would like to do something like:
=D1&$A$1 where D1 is the full path name or ='C:File Path[Workbook"D1".xls]Sheet1'!A1 where D1 is the date name
using excel 07 i prefer not to use a macro for how i am doing this but if a macro is the only way then i cannot have it actually open the files to pull the data. i prefer no macro since i set it up for future dates so when the new file is created it automatically updates the reference.
my end result i usually have something like A1=referenced cell from first workbook, A2= cell from 2nd book, etc. sometimes B1 would = a different cell from first workbook and so on if i am trending multiple cells from the workbooks
What I have done is entered code to auto generate the date in column O whenever data is entered or altered in column A. Here is that code:
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A:A")) Is Nothing Then _ Target.Offset(0, 14).Value = Now
End If End Sub
What I am trying to do now, is create a column that will take the information from O and do a sort of COUNTIF function that will count how many items of data were entered on a certain date by the day. For a clearer example, I want it to tell me how many items were entered/altered on 7/23. But I also want it to continuously calculate it for each date after that. Preferably automatically, but if a macro is needed I can create an update button.
Once it can achieve that I would like to create a dynamic graph that will automatically (or via macro button) update to show the last 5 days. It should display the date and how many items were entered that day.
I'd like to use two columns / labels to create a colorful bar chart that just piles each field value on top of each other and shows the amount (and percent of total if I can) along the first column's values next to the bar chart something like below..
So column 1 is the "entity name" and column 2 is the "value/amount".
I can't make this chart look right at all. I have Excel 2007.
I started a new job and my new company uses Excel 2010 (64-Bit). The code below was written for use in Excel 2007. I am trying to open an XML file and simply paste the results in a spreadsheet but I am getting this error, "Method 'OpenXML' of object 'Workbooks' failed" at the "set oWX" line in the code.
Sub GetNetTIEDAH() Dim idate As Integer Dim strThisBook As String
I am looking for macro where it can generate multiple workbooks with a single worksheet data source. I have this worksheet with data which is look like this:
This data will be places in 1 workbook for each of line with given file name as page number above those workbooks generated will have same information for each line but at different cell position such as: take this example at line 3
Microsoft Excel 2007 Window 7Pro 64bit
This line could be up to 50 lines of data. I try google search but found most about consolidate multiple workbooks to single worksheet. I do have VBA reference that I refer to from [URL] ......
How to put the information from the worksheet into specific position in the workbooks.
