Excel 2010 :: How To Completely DISABLE Spell Check
Feb 28, 2013
We're setting up a test for candidates in an Excel 2010 workbook and want to get a sense of their native ability to spell. We'd like to disable spell check for the entire workbook. I've looked in Options>Proofing, even tried removing the dictionary, but haven't found a way to completely disable spell check from working. Is it possible to achieve? We'd settle for being able to disable spelling within a textbox.
I have is that the code does call the spell-check up and it goes through the motions.
However, when you perform this manually (as in from the toolbar), the spell-check accepts the items as you put in the text bar at the top if you change it.
When doing it via the VBA macro code, it will not accept the user amended-suggestions unless you highlight the (top) text bar area/row/cell to get it to accept some things - otherwise it just accepts the suggestion the checker gives n the section below - not the text you have amended.
I have a set of text boxes in my sheet. I was wondering if there is a way to perform a spell check on the textboxes only (not the cells in the worksheet). I have tried searching the code on the forum, found some which are using 'MSForms.TextBox', dont know why I am getting error.
Every time I type a number too large for a column, Excel resizes that column. This is definitively not what I want to do. I googled a lot and looked at all options, but I could not find a way to stop this behaviour.

Is it possible to disable Import Data Dialog box in Excel 2010? I have a web query file. I want to copy its content and paste in a new worksheet under an existing workbook. I have a macro which does that but I get Import Data dialog box when I tried to paste the copied content from test.iqy file to new sheet. The dialog box has
Select how you want to view this data in your workbook? By default Table is selected, which is fine.
Where do you want to put the data? By default New workbook is selected. I want to have Existing worksheet selected by default.
Is there a way to set these requirements into vba code and make this dialog box not appear at all?
getting a function working within Excel 2010. What I'm trying to do is to first look in a specific directory and loop through each foldername then check to see if the foldername exists in column B of my worksheet. If the foldername exists then check Column E of the same row for a specific value ("assigned") and then make sure column F of the same row has no picture inside the cell. If those three things exist (column B foldername and column E "assigned" and no picture in column F), then add a picture to column F of the same row as the foldername with a hyperlink to a filename of "notes.one" in that specific folder. Then just loop through each foldername in the specific directory until all foldernames have been checked.
I need to make a excel costing model to calculate various products prices. I am using Excel 2010.
I have many products and do not need all of them displaying at the same time, therefor I inserted a Checkbox (ActiveX Control) that hides my columns that I do not need. I did that by inserting the following and it works fine :
The problem is I now need to lock certain cells so that they can remain fixed and the recipe cannot change.
Once locked my checkbox no longer works and I get the following error :
"Run-time error '1004': Unable to set hidden property of the range class"...
Trying to figure out a VB Script but don't know where to start.
I have a sheet for each month. lets take September 2013
A Column with 200 Servers (A1:A200) on the Intranet listed as server-1/, Server-2/ Server-3 ... Server-200/ Each Server lists a location of a file for each day (31 columns per row)
I am trying to check for the existence of the files on each server (The Cells contain the URL and File Name in Range B2:AF201) starting with server-1 check the URL in B2 if it exists, go to C2, Continue with that row until the file check is False (The Page will show a 404 error) if not found delete cell url and continue. do this for all 200 rows
I have a problem regarding buttons.I have placed buttons on my excel sheet with a regular spacing between them.These buttons are placed dynamically on the sheet and I don't know what will be their names as user can add as many as they like.Now the problem is suppose there are two buttons in the range "A1:d8" and say now i delete the this range (using range("A1:d8").entirerow.delete) then buttons do not get completely deleted .A very thin line size button still remains on the sheet.
Is there any way to remove the ribbon from view completely. I am aware they allow us to minimize it and I can do that through VBA or Macros however I don't want the people doing the entry to have any access to the ribbon at all.
My boss has passed me his laptop that he had been designing a spreadsheet on (Excel 2000). The 'forms' toolbar has completely disappeared. When I right click the area where the toolbars are normally docked it lists every one except forms. clicking customise appears to list a few more menus - but no sign of FORMS. If I click 'new' in customise and type in Forms for the name it tells me 'a toolbar named 'forms' already exists' (so where is it!)
I am trying to send bulk emails from my excel 2010 - however I am getting a POP UP. find the screen shot in the enclosed word document So every time a new mail is sent from excel we need to press the button allow Is there a way where I can turn off this warning.
Is it possible to disable all Excel functions? not as in disable calculation, but actually make Excel's standard functions not available in a workbook.
My reason for wondering if this is possible is that I would like to write UDFs that perform special actions in addition to the typical Excel functions, but give them the same name as their Excel counterparts... essentially create polymorphisms / overloaded Excel functions.
I am looking for code that fills empty cells found in columns A-F by copying and pasting the value from the cell of the previous row (of the same column) ignoring columns G onwards. The copying/ pasting then should stop when it encounters its first completely blank row.
How do I adapt code so that it creates a sumif formula for Values in Column E. my current code is: HTML Range("E65536").End(xlUp).Offset(2, 0).Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIF(E:" & Range("E65536").End(xlUp).Address & ",""<0"",E:" & Range("E65536").End(xlUp).Address & ")"
In short, if a value in Column E is < 0, then sum the amount in Column E, and this should give a total of all the negative numbers in column E, but the range parameters seem completely off in my sequence.
