Excel 2007 :: Disable Insert Columns / Rows Only

Mar 1, 2012

I am looking for a way of allowing users to edit the existing cells at their will, but simultaneously disabling the option to insert/ delete columns or rows.

By enabling Sheet Protection, I cannot find a way to do it. Can I?

I am on MS Excel 2007 by the way.

I found the way, just unlock all cells in Format Cells, Protection Tab. Then Protect sheet and de-select what you want to disable.

Excel 2007 :: VBA - Insert Missing Columns In A Series

Dec 18, 2012

I am currently using MS Excel 2007. Is there a way in VBA to automatically insert missing columns based on a defined series or range of values?

For example, we have a report that displays columns of: Year 2004 to Year 2012 per column (9 columns in total).
Sometimes, it displays missing a year or years (thus; our report has less columns). For example, it only shows 2008 to 2012 (missing 2004 to 2007). At times, it misses some years in between. What we do is manually add those missing years by manually inserting columns then inputting the missing year as their column headers.

Is it posisble for VBA to check if the columns contain all of the defined Year range (for example, you've initially defined: Year 2004 to Year 2012)? Afterwards, all missing columns are automoatically inserted (in chronological order or based on your defined values or range).

Excel 2007 :: Subtotals With HIDDEN Rows AND Columns Given Some Criteria

Aug 8, 2014

I am trying to develop a compliance report with Excel 2007) based upon a simple pass/fail criteria. The subtotals must be tracked both by Device (column) and by Requirement (row). There are macros (not included in the attached sample) that hides both columns and rows. I successfully found an example which I modified to correctly calculates data for a column when rows are hidden (see GOOD function below). However, I'm totally clueless on how to calculate data by row when columns are hidden (see BAD function below). What I'm trying to figure out is highlighted in red in the attached spreadsheet.


BAD (returns 0 and includes a circular reference)

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.

Excel 2007 :: Clicking On Cell Auto-selects Cell Next To It - Cannot Disable

Nov 16, 2010

Whenever she clicks on a cell, the cell to the right of it is also selected. When she tries using tab to move to a new cell, she can only move between the two selected cells. Same with using the enter key. As such, it is extremely difficult for her to modify only one cell, since she always has two selected.

The F8 key, as well as Ctrl+F8. However, pressing the F8 key only adds more cells to the autoselection, and Ctrl+F8 allows her to select one cell, but also highlights the cells around it, and when we tried to select other cells, every cell we clicked stayed highlighted.

Additionally, sometimes when she clicks a cell, it will just select that one cell. Click it again, and the problem is back. I haven't been able to determine any patterns to this behavior, and I know there is no problem with the input (the keyboard and mouse are standard-issue in our lab, and we keep them well maintained).

I also tried typing Alt+68 because I believe that is the code for the symbol I want but all I get is a "D".

Excel 2007 :: VBA To Insert Hyperlink In Images

Nov 28, 2012

with the following: The VBA macro I am using, is derived from the excellent "Table of Contents" macro written by Erik Van Geit, a few years ago.

I have a workbook (in Excel 2007, Windows XP) with an Index sheet and 200 other sheets (called ScreenShot1 to ScreenShot200). Each of these 200 sheets has had an image pasted in the top left corner.

At present, using the macro below, a hyperlink is placed in cell A1 on each of these 200 sheets (it's behind the image) that links to cell M1 on the Index sheet. What I would like this macro to do is make each image the hyperlink back to cell M1 on the Index sheet. Please note that the images are not named.

VBA code below,

Sub create_TOC()
Dim i As Integer
Dim msg As String
Dim fc_order As Range
Dim sht As Object
'**** EDIT the following lines ****
Const TOC = "Table of Contents"
Const Index = "Index"
Const CellLink = "A1"
'**** END EDIT ****

Excel 2007 :: Insert Built In Item On Custom Tab?

Jul 22, 2013

Using excel 2007 I've created a new tab and wanted to place the 2003 file menu on it. I don't know how to include it automatically in the tab using a combination of XML and VBA. So I created a button with the callback to run some code. Unfortunately, it still places the item in the Add-in tab. How can I get the undernoted code to operate within my new tab with either XLM or VBA?

Sub InsertFileMenu2003()
Dim cb As CommandBar
Set cb = Application.CommandBars.Add("xl2003 Menu", , True)
CommandBars("Built-in Menus").Controls("&File").Copy cb
Application.CommandBars("xl2003 Menu").Visible = True

Excel 2007 :: Macro To Insert A Text Box Auto-sized To Fit A Cell?

Nov 30, 2011

I am trying to write a Macro that will insert a Text Box that auto-fits the shape of a cell to hide its content. Once finished, the Macro will need to lock the cell and the text box so the contents of the cell are hidden. The idea is that I want to share a spreadsheet with someone but want to hide individual cells for various reason.

Sheet1A1SAMPLE DATA2sample3sample4HIDDEN5sampleExcel 2007

I tried to record a macro as a starting point but it recorded nothing. I searched around and it seems to be an issue without a solution.

I could obviously change the formatting and the contents of the cell but the idea is to preserve the contents if possible.

Excel 2007 :: Protect Worksheet Disables Formatting And Insert Symbols?

Mar 20, 2013

I've got a workbook where I need to protect certain cells by locking them.

The trouble is when I do this I lose the ability to apply formatting and to insert symbols in other cells?

I've checked the obvious options for when you're locking cells but nothing seems to be stopping this there.

Is there a reason it disables these options, a work around or am I just being dumb?

I'm using Excel 2007 by the way.

Columns To Insert The 2 Rows

Aug 22, 2007

I have this excel file which has data in it. However, this data will come in everyday. Eg, A1 to A10 is QWE, A11 to A20 is RTY, A21 to 30 is UIO. But as I said earlier new data will come in everyday. For eg, it will become A1 to A15 is QWE, A16 to A30 is RTY and so and so forth.

I need to insert 2 rows after QWE, RTY, UIO. But as data will come in everyday, I cant standardise my columns to insert the 2 rows.
