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.
Dim secAutomation As MsoAutomationSecurity
secAutomation = Application.AutomationSecurity
Select Case secAutomation
I have a sheet that will not let me use macros. I can record them, but when I go to use them it says that the Macro security level is too high. I change it to Medium or Low but it doesn't make a difference.
The same spreadsheet works with Macros on another computer, but not my main one.
Although not a complete novice, I am fairly new to EXCEL/VBA. Is there a script that can be embedded into an EXCEL workbook that checks the Macro security of the PC, and if set to HIGH, shows a message that states that "Macro security is too high to open this workbook". With security set to high, Excel will open my w/ book, but not run any of my checks that are set in the module. So a "catch 22" really, I need the macros to run to that it is being opened on an authorised computer etc, but if security is set to HIGH, then they don't run, similarly, if I put a macro in to check the macro setting, it won't run unless the security is set to medium.
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.
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.
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?
I have a spreadsheet that I regularly have to clear the data and start over on, so i recorded a macro for clearing this rather long sheet with only one cllick.
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.
We have a huge excel-sheet, containing disputes with customers. Everytime there is a dispute, the customers data will be transferred into the sheet. The sheet is organized like this:
DATE / NAME / ID / COMMENT / FREQUENCY (how often one customer appears in the list) /ID2 (ID combination of the date + ID) /Weekday
And here comes the task:
Find all customers who appear 10 work-days(Mo-Fr) in a row. So if a customer appears Mo-Fr and keeps on being in the list the next Monday etc. it still counts as "in a row". Same with official holidays. If a customer appears at a certain date he is "booked" and it doesnt matter if a appears a second time on that specific date.
Attached to this post you find an example in which you can see the structure of my excel sheet!
Note: I had to use a german version of excel when I made this little example - thats why the formula in the collum "Frequency" says "Zahlenwenn" its the german version of COUNTIF
I'm designing a workbook to track psychiatric patient data. The workbook has identical worksheets for each month of the year (Jan, Feb, Mar, etc.), plus an Admin sheet for overhead. I need to devise a formula that will automatically detect 30-day readmissions (i.e., patients being admitted to the hospital within 30 days of a prior admission) and return a "Y" for a readmit and an "N" for a discharge or first-time admission. I have tried several variations on SUMPRODUCT with multiple conditions spanning multiple sheets (using INDIRECT and a monthly worksheet index -- A1:A12 -- on the Admin worksheet), but the results always turn out...wonky. (Sometimes a correct value is returned, and sometimes not. I can't figure out what is causing this inconsistency.) The relevant ranges from the monthly worksheets are:
B3:B52 : Date of evaluation H3:H52 : Unique patient ID number Y3:Y52 : Patient disposition (i.e., admitted or discharged) AC3:AC52 : Readmission status (i.e., yes or no)
The formula should only return a "Y" value if a) the patient was previously admitted within 30 days of the evaluation date, and b) the patient was also admitted on the evaluation date.
I am using Excel 2003, so SUMIFS is not available.
I've written code into excel that sends workbooks to email recipients. This works fine except for use on one friends computer. Of course it's the friend that needed the code in the first place. What happens is that when the macro attempts to mail a spreadsheet an outlook popup occurrs warning that a macro is attempting to email a message. And so nothing gets emailed out!
I have 4 worksheets in a workbook: “choose security”, “download”, “MC” and “Lending”,
In the choose security” worksheet in CELL A2 is an HEX code, i.e. stock code.
2. In MC worksheet is raw data of all holdings related to various p’folios and securities, the information we need from this worksheet is,
a) p’folios, which are in column A, b) Holdings which is Col B c) Security code i.e. stock code which is in Col D
I need a macro or a formula to look at what security code is in “choose security” worksheet CELL A2, then look for this security in worksheet “MC” Col D, once matched, copy the data for this security to worksheet “download” and paste in CELL A3, I only need p’folios and holdings to be copied to “download” so data in Col A and B.
Once data has been copied to worksheet “download”, I then need another macro or formula to repeat step 2, but this time the macro will be looking at worksheet “Lending”,
a) P’folios, which are in Col B b) Security code is in Col D c) Holdings is in Col H
Once the macro or formula has found a match of security code, it will then copy the data from Col B and H to download worksheet CELL E3.
We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.
What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:
1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue
2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -
I have created a workbook. That has 35 worksheets within it. I have created a series of buttons and put in a macro code so that when the user clicks on the button it changes the active worksheet to what they clicked on.
So basically when they click button b it changes to worksheet b and if they click button c it changes to worksheet c, ETC.
The problem I have is that since it is a macro it works fine on my computer but when it is sent to other users, because of security settings on their pcs it will disable the macro [thus the buttons will not work or show up]. I have created a digital trust certificate for it. However it is alot of steps to install this for the basic user. Is there a way to create a button that will do what I want without using a macro code. In that it will be able to go to many different users and wont have to worry about the buttons not working because of security settings?
My Excel spreadsheet is linked to an Access database to Get external Data. When the data is periodically refreshed ,while the spreadsheet is open, I need to automatically detect it so that a macro can be run each time to format the new data. The Excel data is not a pivot table. The spreadsheet is for display of data only (no user updating).
Is there anyway to change the security settings in Excel 2007 using VB macros? I have tried to record the macro as I change the settings but nothings is recorded. Basically I have two workbooks, and I want to run one of the macros within workbook 1 from workbook 2. This is straight forward, however why I try to run it, excel says that the macros are disabled in the other workbook, but I know they are not, they are all enabled (bottom option)
I was hoping to find some way of fooling Excel into thinking the macros were enabled by changing the security settings (actually keeping them the same, but making excel think that i've changed them) before I try to the macro from the other sheet. I don't know if i've explained myself very well here, I hope I have, if not let me know and i'll try to go into more detail.
Excel 2010, Windows 7: Is it possible to password protect an Excel document at an "Administrator" or a executive level. I want to grant access to the document, and the ability to manipulate it as they choose, to everyone with the password but prohibit them from changing the password once they are in.
The code to merge sheets to a master sheet runs great, however when I copy the code to the Personal.XLSB to have the macro available to use on every workbook I’m getting an error. The line of code is Application.Goto DestSh.Cells(1) and the error is Method ‘Goto of object’_Application’failed. This happen even if I create a new workbook with 3 sheets and only a few cells with information. The macro to mail the sheet works fine using the Personal XLSB.
