Excel 2007 :: Workbook Appear To Be Open But Can't See Anything

Feb 13, 2011

I am using Excel 2007 on Windows XP professional.

The workbook is called EA.xlsm, and contains dozens of charts, tables and pivot tables - all of which pull their data from external files in the same folder. In case it matters, the folder also contains a Word 2007 document which contains embedded charts form the EA.xlsm file and lays them out for printing.

My problem is that all of a sudden, when I try to open the EA.xlsm file, it gives me two consecutive error messages, as follows:

Microsoft Office has identified a potential security concern.

File path: c:My DocumentsEA.xlsm

Data connections have been blocked. If you choose to enable data connections, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]

to which I click enable, and then....

Microsoft Office has identified a potnetial security concern.

File path: c:My DocumentsEA.xlsm

Automatic update of links has been disabled. If you choose to enable automatic update of links, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]

to which I also click enable.

Excel then opens, but I just get the program with a blue screen. i.e. it looks like you have opened Excel, but not opened a file yet. However, if I try to close Excel, it asks me if I want to save changes to EA.xlsm, and if I try to open EA.xlsm again - it tells me that it is already open. Also, if I press Alt+F11 to open the VBA console - I can see the names of all of the sheet tabs in the file - but when I close the VBA console, it looks as though I do not have a file open again.

I suspect that somehow, somewhere the file is open, but I dont know what I need to do to be able to see/edit it. Or even worse - if it has become corrupt. It would take me about a month to put this file back together again from scratch.

Excel 2007 :: Switch To Other (already Open) Workbook?

Mar 30, 2014

Assume I open with Excel 2007 three different Excel workbooks

excel1.xls
excel2.xls
excel3.xls

How can I switch from one Workbook to another?

I found no "open document" menu where all currently opened excel documents are listed.

The only way I found so far is by clicking on another preview in Win 7 Taskbar.

But I guess there must be a way INSIDE Excel as well.

Where can I find (and click) all open excel workbooks/files?

Excel 2007 :: Start Timer After Workbook Open For Certain Amount Of Time

Dec 28, 2013

I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.

VB:
Private Sub CBReset_Click()
Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double
T = Timer
Do
E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs
M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60)
S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)

[Code] .....

Excel 2007 :: VBA To Save And Close All Open Workbooks Except Macro Workbook?

Mar 8, 2013

I have a macro that opens all workbooks from one directory and runs a macro for each workbook to clean up the data. I cannot figure out how to take all those open workbooks and save them to another directory and close the workbook. Also, I do not want the macro workbook (xlsm) to save. I only want it to close. I am working in 2007 Excel.

Excel 2007 :: How To Open Different Files On Each Of Two Monitors

Feb 15, 2013

I run two monitors and am able to open different files on each monitor which is very handy.

This doesn't seem to work with Excel. If I have two different Excel files open I can only view one at a time. I can move across to the other monitor, but then can only view one at a time on that monitor - very frustrating.

When I was using Excel 2010 on my last job I was shown a clunky, round-about way of being able to open two Excel files, one on each monitor. (By opening one file, opening a new Excel document from there, and then opening the other Excel file from the new document, minimizing that file and dragging it to the other screen).

Now I am using Excel 2007 and am not able to view two different Excel files, one on each screen. how I can do this in Excel 2007?

Excel 2007 :: Hyperlinks - Cannot Open The Specified File

Oct 17, 2013

I received a USB drive from a client with an Excel spreadsheet with hyperlinks to PDF's (not sure of the version it was originally created in but my version is 2007). The PDF's are in another folder on the USB drive.

The cells with the hyperlinks have a formula to hidden cells [i.e. =HYPERLINK(C17,B17)] - in column B is the name of the hyperlink and in column C looks to be the file trial to the PDF (please see attached picture).

When I select the link, I get an Alert Box stating, "Cannot open the specified file." How I can get these links to work?

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity
cost

1
2
3
4
5

Can't Open An Excel Workbook With Macros

Nov 2, 2008

My son just upgraded my computer from 2000 to xp - a new application on a new hard drive. in the process, Excel was upgraded from 97 SR-1 to 97 SR-2.

My checkbook is on excel, and I really need to open it! We just moved to a new location, with the typical problems with email, internet etc.

I can open workbooks without macros. But I cannot open any with macros.

I get this message:
"Could not register the Visual Basic environment."

When that window is closed, the next one says:
"An error occured when initializing the VBA libraries (126)"

Excel 2007 :: Hide A Tab In Workbook?

Jan 18, 2013

I created a workbook called "controlelijst.xls" using Excell 2007. In this workbook i created a sheet that i use as a template, it has conditional formatting all over it. That in fact is not the problem. I copy this template for every new issue i have.

The thing i would like to see happening now is when i enter the value "Y" in cell O10 that the active sheet on wich the value is entered becomes hidden. Because the reason for setting this value is that all conditions are met on this sheet and it does not have to be visible anymore unless i unhide it.

Excel 2007 :: Vlookup And Copy Value From Another Workbook?

Apr 15, 2014

Excel 2007

I have a workbook (book1) that is modifying multiple other workbooks (book2). I need to do a vlookup of a sheet in book1 from a value in book2. I then need to insert the value found by the lookup into G7:H7 (merged cells) of book2.

value is in column B of page "Routes" of book1. Found by value B3:C3 of book2. The vlookup looks in column A of book1. The found value is put into G7:H7 of book2.

In a step by step, to possibly make this more clear:

1) check value of B3:C3 in book2
2) find value in Routes sheet of book1, column A
3) upon match, grab the value of column B
4) insert that value into G7:H7 of book2

Excel Links Only Updates When Source Workbook Is Open?

Mar 24, 2014

I built a template which pulls data from the source file using formulas. the problem is formulas doesn't give any error it updates the right value when the source workbook is open.

I Thought problem could be with the formula and tried just Source A1=destination A1. it also updates only if the source file is open. when the source file is closed it shows the last captured value.

The source file is on the (Work) Network Drive and is accessible to few people. my template is password protected (tabs) so formulas cannot be deleted.

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that itís not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ĎWorkbook_Opení etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesnít contain a macro to auto open and because csvís usually donít like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.

Excel 2007 :: Delete Sheet On A Shared Workbook

Oct 29, 2013

I have a file that has an original file format .xls

I saved as .xlsx (I am using Excel 2007) with a different name so I could make changes to the new file without changing the original.

That turn off compatibility mode.... but it is still "shared". While it is shared I cannot delete a sheet. In fact, I really don't even want it to be shared. If the file is open, and someone else opens it, I want it to open as "read only". I cannot uncheck the "Allow changes by more than one user at the same time. This also allows workbook merging." checkbox because it is greyed out.
