I have inherited support for a suite of Excel 2003 spreadsheets with complicated macros which run fine on XP. Having been tasked to test them on Windows 7 with Office 2010, I have not converted them as they are run by several sites globally who may not upgrade to Office 2010 at the same time. Hence they run in compatibility mode which in general is fine.
However, certain macros are veeeery slow and to the user would look like the app has hung. In debug I have found that the macro takes 10 minutes plus whenever it hits any of the following code:
.Calculation = xlAutomatic
.MaxChange = 0.001
ActiveWorkBook.PrecisionAsDisplayed = False
It goes slow on each of the three 'lines' so it seems that it is actually doing an auto calc each time!
Is there some configuration I can do to prevent this? Setting auto calc to Manual didn't work and anyway I loose things, like data validation, when I save it in Excel 2010.
I have a workbook with numerous macros in it and they are assigned to buttons in the different worksheets. I am trying to record a new macro and when I start recording and click on one of the other macros nothing happens. This wasn't a problem in excel 2003.
I have built an Application in Excel that is used by a userbase of 50+ people. Now, as standard, they are only able to access the document read only. The application writes data to an ".mdb" but the user cannot change the application directly istself.
Now, we've had the problem over the last few days that the program is running slowly when it is trying to write data back to the ".mdb" file.
I believe that it could be because connection to the sever that our application is running slowly (or the server is too highly trafficed) but our server team are telling me there is nothing wrong with the server and it's running slowly because there are too many people in one Excel application/
I currently use an Excel program (with macros) that run weather forecast data. It is compatible with versions XP, 2003, 2007 and 2010. However, I am trying to figure out if I can run it on a Mac. My plan is to run windows on my Mac through Parellels or VMWare Fusion.

I have a workbook with macros Ive created that have been running just fine for 2 years now. Ive upgraded to a top of the line new Dell D830 dual core laptop with 2gb ram and installed excel 2003 (same excel as always). Certain macros that used to take a second or two to run on a celeron dell now take 3min's! Ive stepped through the code in debug mode and found that its hanging up in simple areas like "Columns("A:A").Select" and "Selection.ClearContents". We have 16 older laptops running these exact codes just fine all day long and the 2 new fast computers with core 2 duo processors are hanging up constantly in the same places in code. Ive gone through and made sure all the "option" settings are identical in excel. Is there some system setting That I'm missing or possibly an excel setting That I may have overlooked?
I have the following macro in a worksheet...and it is running very slow. There are other macros in the worksheet and they all run very well. Any ideas by looking at this code why it would be so slow in running?
I have an excel sheet with about 3,000 products listed; there are 26 items of data listed against each.
I've been using Data Filters to manipulate the info, but my worksheet has suddenly started running incredibly slowly - up to 7 minutes to implement a simple filter selection.
There was no problem until I made a couple of changes last week:
1. Adding a simple pivot table
2. Using an Index column plus some linked formulae to extract a list of suppliers from the product list.
I assumed that it may be the INDEX and related formulae or the pivot table that were causing the Data Filters to run slow, so I deleted them, but to no effect. I've even gone so far as to copy the raw data into a new sheet, but it's still running incredibly slowly when I try to filter. I am convinced that the problem is related to some hidden legacy of the table or functions, as it only started once I'd added these, but I don't know if this is plausible in reality and if so how to get rid of it.
i have a simple question regarding vba code involving opening/eleboration/closing of different excel workbooks' format. I saw that with xls/xlsx the macro works with relatively high speed, but it is very slow when it comes to xlsm file. Is there an explanation? Does a command which enhance speed for xlsm file exist?
I have a macro to collate data from multiple workbooks to a single sheet. The folder path to the source files can be chosen thorugh the macro. It runs perfectly in my system running on Windows XP. But it doesnt run on Wondows 7 system. Both are using MS Excel 2010. In Windows 7 system, while choosing the folder path where source files are located, it says "No items match your search" (screenshot attached). I would want the macro modified so that it runs on any platform. The macros that I'm using is given below:
I have a 'dashboard' worksheet in 2010 and want to be able to click on a cell in this sheet and have it take me to the assigned worksheet. They are all in the same workbook. e.g if i click on Leadership i want it to take me to the Leadership tab, Skills to take me to the Skills tab etc The 'dashboard' will be the only viewable sheet in the workbook until one of the items on the page has been clicked.
I have a very basic understanding of macros and I'm not sure if this would work or if i should use a formula instead?
I developed a tool in Excel 2010 using macros and launched it to a group of dozens of users. Turns out one of them uses a mac and says it is incompatible. I have never used Excel for Mac or tested my tool in it. Next I plan to test it on a mac but how to make this work?
How/ where to save macros. If I save a macro "normally" ("in this workbook") then it only applies to that one file, right? And I can't use it in any new files.
So what do I do if I want a macro I can use in "all" my Excel files?
And can I email a file containing a macro to a colleague, so he can work on the file, using the macro too?
I ask, because I've had trouble with this in the past (tho in MS Word) where I couldn't get the macro to be emailed along with the file...
Also - how can I get an .xls file with a macro to work in newer versions of Excel? And can I use Excel 2010 to save a file with a macro in an .xls format, so it can be opened in older Excel versions too?
i have the following problem: as a Workbook_BeforePrint statement i wrote a macro in which i recalculate the print area of 2 tables in Sheet1 and Sheet2. The table autogenerates new lines through another macro and therefore i need to set the area because i cannot know from the start how big will be the table (how many lines it will have). I know only how many columns it will have (from cell B2 (or Sheet1.Cells(2,2)) to column 13, on Sheet1 and 5 on Sheet2).
As i said, before Print (or PrintPreview) excel triggers this Workbook_BeforePrint macro. In this macro i count the lines on a column which is the Current Nr. column, until cell is empty (=""). The macro works perfect. Here is the macro:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean) setprint End Sub
I have a macro-based employee leave system that works by couting the number of days shaded with a certain colour and thus calculating leave days taken, remaining and entitled... I have a single workbook with multiple sheets for different employees.
However, when I update by using ctrl alt f9, it updates all the other worksheets (ignoring their shading) with the values of the active worksheet! So if I update Peter, who has taken 14 days so far, it will update Liam's sheet too, with 14 days, ignoring Liam's actual shaded days...
How can I update each sheet individually, without compromising the other sheets?
I'm using excel 2010 and have inherited an old workbook that has seen many version updates over the years. The "view macros" list displays approx 25 macros and I know that not all are currently being used or necessary.
The main tab contains macro control buttons. Any macro not assigned to one of these controls is not necessary (it's probably old and was just never removed).
How can I determine which macros are "unassigned" to a control or otherwise invalid?
formula to take a value from one sheet and add to it in Excel 2010? I'm naming the sheets but not necessarily numerically. I have done it by manually entering the sheet name but would like it to figure out the sheet name automatically based on where the sheet is located in the workbook. That way I can copy the current sheet, rename it and still have it update properly with a running total. Here is what I have now: =D7+'011514'!E7
I currently have an excel workbook (2010) in which I created a custom ribbon and assigned several different macros to the buttons.
Long story short, I will be saving several variations of this workbook every so often when I get new data.
The problem is that if I change the name of the file (Save as or Rename), the custom ribbon buttons no longer work. When I assigned the macros to the ribbon buttons, the macros were absolutely assigned.
Is it possible to assign relative macros to custom ribbons?
From research I have done, it appears that custom ribbons cannot be created using VBA. Is this still true?
I've created a spreadsheet at work that has two summary tabs which contain hyperlinks to around 30 separate sheet tabs.
On each sheet tab there is a list of unique values in column A (and other information relating to each value in columns B to D which are repeated for more than one unique value). In column E, users enter a test script name against each unique value they wish to 'reserve', and the macro picks out the unique test script names and via the COUNTIF formula counts the frequency of each test script name for each of the different values in column B.
My problem is that the macro seems to work fine if the workbook is not shared, but errors if the workbook is saved as shared. The error is 'Run time error 1004 - Unable to select the MergeCells property of the Range class'.
Here is the macro code:
Sub Get_Policies_Per_Script(updCol As Long, ShtName As String) Dim rowctr As Long Dim tgtrow As Long
Const ppsformula As String = "=COUNTIFS($A$3:$A$65000,I$24,$E$3:$E$65000,$G"
If updCol = 5 Then 'test name column has been modified
I have two macros. Macros 1 opens another excel file, counts the number of rows it has, inserts that number of rows into the master file and then copies the data over. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)... For k = 1 To numrows Selection.EntireRow.Insert Next k
Macros 2 'cleans' the appended data by systematically going through each row, checking if certain cells have data, and if not deletes the rows. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)...
For l = lastrow To 12 Step -1 If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("B" & l & ":C" & l)) = 0 Then Rows(l & ":" & l).Select Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp edelrows = edelrows + 1 End If Next l
Here's the weirdness. macros 1 runs fairly quick the first time out (few seconds). Macros 2 takes about 2 minutes to run (which I'm fine with). However, when I run macros 1 AFTER running Macros 2, Macros 1 goes from taking a few seconds to a few minutes.
