Excel 2010 :: Automation Error When Click On Button That Executes Macro
Aug 22, 2012
I keep getting an automation error in excel 2010 when I click on the button that executes the macro. Excel crashes when the box appears. There is no code in the error box. Why I get this error message.
I have a VBA macro for automatically create a word report using data in Access and Excel. The macro is hosted within a Excel document but are using both Word-, Excel and Access objects/dataTtemplates for the creation.
The errors appears what it seems randomly. The macro iterates the same code a few times even in Office 365 but then it crashes. The most common error messages are:
Run-time error '-2147417851 (80010105)':
Automation error : The server threw an exception.
Run-time error '462':
The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable
This action cannot be completed because the application () is busy. Choose Switch To to activate and correct the problem.
(no options are working, this hang the application)
If I debug usually the error originates from the code where I ether close the workbook template I'm using:
... or when I paste a chart from Excel to the Word report:
Even more strange are that sometimes if I continue to run the macro its all working again. This ONLY happens when the client office installation is O365. Office 2013 works just fine. I thought O365 and Office 2013 was fairly equal?
why a macro that works without a problem in Excel 2010 now crashes Excel 2013. The error produced says 'Automation Error Exception Occurred'. If I place a stop in the code and hold the F8 key down, the code runs perfectly (Excel 2013) but if I run it, it will crash. The code is copying a worksheet into a new workbook, adding 2 more worksheets, saving then emailing the workbook before closing. It goes through the routine about 7 times before crashing (sending only 7 email out). It's something to do with the email because I can bypass that code and it runs that part without a problem.
Our office just upgraded all the computers to Office 2013 and I've got to get this macro running again. I had to email 100 reports one-by-one today and I didn't like it.
I have an excel workbook created in 2007, but now running in 2010. In the workbook I have a form Combo box with a macro assigned to it. When I click any value in the combo dropdown list the macro executes. In 2007 I could click the combo dropdown box and then press ESC to exit from the form control without executing the assigned macro. Similarly I could also click on any other cell to exit from the control without executing the macro.
But, in 2010 if I press ESC or click on any other cell the macro will execute. Sometimes I want to be able to exit from the combo box without executing the macro.
it would be possible to have text disappear after being displayed in Excel for a while.
My son and I played around with games (helping create a photographic memory, I told the youngster!) on the thing and until yesterday neither of us noticed that clicking the mouse anywhere (actually just clicking it) causes the screen to "freeze" while the code still happily erases the text in the background.
Hitting ESC allows the screen to cath up to the actual code EVEN THOUGH the ESC key is actually disabled from breaking the code.
I am new to VBA programming so i might be making a obvious mistake. I am trying to create a macro that will insert rows depending on a cell value. I also need this to be executed from a command button rather then to occur immediately after the cell value is entered. So as a example
Lets say Cell A2 has a value 20 Cell A3 has a value 3 Cell A4 has a value 5
when this data is entered and then a Command button poressed there should be
This code appears to do opposite of what I intended i.e., when I click 'Yes' button it closes the file without saving; and when I click 'No' button it closes the file with saving?
Private Sub btnExitNewPipes_Click() If MsgBox("Save the Data?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "File Save") = vbYes _ Then ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges = True ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges = False End Sub
Dim strLoan As String Dim longCat As Long Dim rHere As Range Range("A1").Select [Code] .....
I can see the cursor move to all the desired cells when this macro executes; it just isn't dropping any data where it should be. I have been working at this stage for the last five hours with no success. I don't know whether my copy-paste methodology is broken or if it is my selection criteria
I have attached my excel database, as think I'm having a funny moment, I keep getting an error message of Object Reuired when I click on the form button to launch the Input Form, where have I gone wrong as to why the Input form will not load?
I have obtained a piece of code from online that runs a macro on multiple files in a single given a single folder. when i implement it though it throws a run time error 424 "object required' and point to 'Documents.Open FileName:=path & file' line of code. Is this because Dim file type is not declared?how do i fix this problem. also, im using excel 2010.A
I was trying to add a popup box so that if no match was found, it would report a popup box stating so.
Well, It runs successfully, however it executes every, single time! LOL
On Error Goto A
Dim Search_Range As Range, Found_Range As Range Dim SearchFor As Variant, cell As Range
SearchFor = Range("J3").Value Set Search_Range = Range("A:A")
Set Found_Range = Find_Range(SearchFor, Search_Range, xlValues, xlPart, False) For Each cell In Intersect(Found_Range.EntireRow, Columns("G")) cell.Value = cell.Value + 1 Next cell A: MsgBox "Not Found" Range("J3").Select Selection.ClearContents Exit Sub
Range("J3").Select Selection.ClearContents End Sub
I have many workbooks that I receive from clients I run various Excel VBA macros on depending on which workbook it is, and I need to automate all of this so that anyone can run an simple .exe user interface designed in VB 2005 Express Edition where when that interface is run, a window opens on the destop with a collection of buttons, when the user clicks one of the buttons, Excel launches, loads the appropriate file and runs an already-existing appropriate Excel macro, then some file maintenance is done, like moving a group of files from one subdirectory to another.
On a spreadsheet I have a button which has a macro assigned to it, for some reason when I protect the worksheet then then click the button, nothing happens (or though I do get egg timer for a second). but when I unprotect the shet its fine.
ive used this type of method many tiems, and cant see what the problem is, have tried all combination of locking and unlocking cells in and around etc, but nothign changes it.
I've been using a macro successfully for the last couple of years, but this morning when I went to use it, it decided to fail. I have a workbook which contains various spreadsheets. The macro that has failed performs the following tasks:
1. It copies a list of email addresss from an external workbook to a sheet in the current workbook (still works) 2. It copies the referral sheet I want to send to a new file, and saves it with an appropriate filename to an appropriate folder (still works) 3. The macro then creates an email with a standard subject line, attaches the new worksheet and emails it to each of the addresses as above (broken)
The error message is from Microsoft Visual Basic. "Run-time error '1004': Mail system failure. Check your mail installation."
I'm guessing there is a setting somewhere in Excel that has changed as part of an update.
I've been through a number of the options in the developer menu to remove any obvious restrictions (& reopened excel afterwards), but so far it hasn't resolved the problem.
For what it's worth, here is the macro code.
With Application .EnableEvents = False .ScreenUpdating = False End With Run "PullInSheet1" Dim oldbook As String
In case you're wondering about the pullinsheet code, I'll add it below - but I probably grabbed it from this forum a couple of years ago (like some of the above) & just made some changes.
Code: Sub PullInSheet1() Dim AreaAddress As String '''''' Sheet11.UsedRange.Clear Dim ClRange As String ClRange = "= 'L:ADMINEMPLOY SERVICES" _
There are a couple of things I've wanted to do to improve the macro, but I couldn't justify the need to spend time working it out (since writing spreadsheets isn't really my job). Since it's broken at the moment, I can...
1. I'd like to create a subject line that reflects the name of the person being referred. For some reason though, anything other than text in the cell reference caused an error for me. eg, I tried using concatenate to create my subject line, but it didn't work.
2. I'd like the copied sheet to contain all of the formatting of the original sheet. Presumably there is a paste option that will do this and I just picked the wrong one.
The mailsystem we use is Groupwise 8. I couldn't find any settings in that program that have been changed, or that I could change.
I should change the extension from xls to xlsx in the code since I'm using Excel 2010 (but changing it doesn't fix the problem).
I am running excel 2010 with windows 7. I created a macro in sheet 1 and I wish to activate the macro from sheet 2 using a form button. I have entered the code below. I know how to perform this function on a more simple macro like adding names to cells. This code is a bit more complex I just dont know where to start.
I'm trying to set up a system of sorts to track "services"
At the top of my 'new service" page, I need a button, which I then need to have a macro run on.
Sheet 1 is basically where I'd be entering the info, and sheet 2 where it would be stored. The button at the top is called Generate New "service' Number. This then needs to generate a new number on sheet 2 in A2 (then once 2 is populated, generate new in 3, then 4, then 5 etc...
I have a macro on Save Service Button at the bottom, which transposes the data into what would be used as a database to store all the services. That Macro then also needs to only transpose and paste data into the row corresponding with the "service number".
I am looking for a way to move workbooks to a new instance of excel by the click of a button. For example if I have multiple workbooks open under one instance of excel I do not want to have to minimize this and that... I have multiple monitors and I would like to hit a button on a selected workbook and have it auto open it to a new instance of excel. I image this may not be apart of excel and that it might require a macro to do so.
I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.
On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells
On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells
D4 & D5 E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42
It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead
Each macro is assigned to its own button, Clear and Restore. What I'm trying to do is make it so that the macro attached to the Restore button will not activiate unless the Clear macro attached to the Clear button is clicked first and visa versa. I can't see to find anthing quite like it in my research.
In Excel 2010 onwards (probably 2007 as well) there are two right click context menus that pop up on a cells.
The "Cell" command bar and also a smaller formatting bar.
What is this bar called and if you remove it how do you get it back when you have removed all the standard bars.
The above doesn't seem to get back the formatting bar. I did managed to get it back but through luck rather than judgement. Just through looping through every commadbar and printing it to the immediate window.
I've added the name of the context menu to each commadbar but the formatting one does not get a name put at the bottom of it. I've looked on this site and it doesn't seem to say anything about this new menu.
We just upgraded our machines to Excel 2010 and now I'm having an issue with copying forumlas down. In Excel 2007 (and 03) if you double clicked in the bottom right corner of a cell, Excel would autofill your formula (or data set) down until the last row of data in your range. Have tried all the settings in 2010 and can't get it to work. All I'm able to do is do a manual copy/paste or highlight all the cells and select fill down.
Hope this is fairly easy to solve. I have Screen #1 with a listbox with a CLICK event. The event populates a combobox below (with items based on listbox's selection). Listbox is NOT multi-select. Code runs fine manually, i.e., user opens screen selects from listbox, then can select from combobox.
I now what to open and make selections from another form/screen, Screen #2. I've written code to select the proper item from Screen #2's listbox but this does NOT trigger the listbox's CLICK event for me so the combobox isn't populated so I can then make that selection from Screen #1, also. I've tried setting focus to listbox first, then making selection, but that doesn't work.
QUESTION: Is there code that selects from a listbox in a way that mimics the user clicking the selected item in the listbox?
The alternatives I can think of are: 1) Change Screen #2's listbox code from CLICK to CHANGE event, but I'd rather not. 2) Move CLICK event code to sub-procedure and then call from both listbox CLICK and Screen #2 code 3) Some sendkey string like ENTER?
Would be easier to just mimic the user click, if possible.
With frm_Screen2 'Select item type from listbox With .LBox_Items
I found this code for a button, so I can collapse and expand a set number of rows within that sheet. It works exactly the way i want it to, however, now I have a second sheet in my workbook, and I used the same button. Problem here is that when I activate the button, it opens the same rows in EVERY sheet in the workbook. "For each ws in Worksheets" so my question is what is the term for it to only work on a certain worksheet?
Code: Private Sub ToggleButton1_Change()Application.ScreenUpdating = False Dim ws As Worksheet With ToggleButton1 If ToggleButton1.Value = True Then For Each ws In Worksheets
Other questions is about the ability to send an MS Outlook email from inside of excel.
I've been trying to find something that does the following:
Click button, Form pops up, has drop downs to select recipient, has field for subject, has field for message body, sends email.
I am currently using a pop up calendar in Excel 2010 that with CTL+SHIFT+B that a calendar pops up, you select your date, and then the calendar closes. What I now need is to write a code or formula or something that when I click in any cell in column F lets say that the calendar opens automatically in that cell and then still close automatically after the date selection is made.
