Excel 2010 :: Macros No Longer Work When Workbook Shared

Aug 22, 2012

Using Excel 2010.

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

[Code] ..........

Excel 2010 :: Command Button In Shared Workbook Not Working?

Sep 7, 2010

I am using Excel 2010. I am using a shared workbook that was originally created in Excel 2003. This workbook has a command button that is supposed to be clicked to open a userform. However, I cannot even click on the button when opening the shared form in Excel 2010. When the form is not shared, the button works fine.

I have no problems with the button when opening the shared form in 2003 or 2007.

Is there anything I can do to make the command button work while the form is shared and while using Excel 2010?

Excel 2010 :: Paste Options No Longer Showing Up When Clicking CTRL

Jul 30, 2014

I'm currently using Excel 2010. Before, when ctrl+v'ing a cell that wasn't a number (but was, for example, a function), I could immediately after press ctrl, bring up a paste menu, and press v to paste as a value.

So before, if I had a range of cells that were functions (say something simple like "=D3/E3" on F3 and dragged down), I could do the following to paste the range into another worksheet:

1. Ctrl+shift+down to select the entire range
2. Ctrl+C
3. Ctrl+V into a different worksheet (at which point everything shows up as either "#DIV/0!" or as the wrong number, depending on cells to the left)
4. Ctrl (brings up the paste menu)
5. V (selects "values")
6. The entire range is now pasted as values, and not as functions

Recently, however, clicking on "ctrl" after pasting brings up no paste menu. I haven't changed any settings. I will lovingly serenade the first (and second, and third) man (or woman) that figure out what settings I must change or what I must do differently.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Editor Pops Up With Shared File

I have an Excel file in Shared Mode...

Now, when it starts, I have a popup form asking for password for access for it. The problem is that for one person - AND ONLY THAT PERSON - the VBA Editor window opens and she has to press the "Play" button for it to hide and be able to enter the password to access the application.

The editor is not showing on any other computer. All computers are running Excel 2010.

Excel 2002 :: Limitations In Shared Workbook

Jul 20, 2013

I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.

I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.

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.

We have a Shared workbook on our Server and about 5 users work at the same time every day. I want to understand something, If I open it I can see all the information in it, all the rows and so on, but if the same workbook is opened by another user he will see other information, the rows aren't the same as in my case. Why does this happen ? I would like the second users to see the same information as I do.

Can No Longer Get LOOKUP To Work As Expected! (2007)

Jun 17, 2009

I have used the LOOKUP formula several times with no problem.

Now -- even in the simplest example -- I can't get it to work as I expect.

Rather than explain, attached is a very simple spreadsheet that shows how the LOOKUP formula is returning a different value than I would expect.

As mentioned on the spreadsheet, the value I would expect to be returned is "euro", not "other sam".

Formulas No Longer Work After Converting To Table

Apr 27, 2013

I'm working on a spreadsheet which will sum values from two source worksheets based on the month and year in certain columns. I put together a summary worksheet and was able to successfully pull the data I wanted. So my next step was to convert the Summary data into a table (because I prefer the aesthetic value of the "greenbar" effect in Excel tables). But as soon as I converted the cells to a table, the formulas returned nothing.

After playing around with it, I determined that the problem seems to be the fact that I use the year criteria as a cell reference (that way, I can later change the year in one cell and update all the dependent formula). I've got "2013" in Cell A1 in General format, and all the formulas use a YEAR=$A$1 criterion. I found out that if I changed the formulas to YEAR=2013 instead of using the cell reference, I got the desired result again. But I cannot quite understand why changing the data into a table would alter the way Excel interprets the formula (plus, I still want to be able to change the year by updating one single cell).

Excel 2003 :: Inserted Row Shows Up As Hidden Row In Shared Workbook?

Nov 20, 2012

The other day I inserted a row in a shared workbook and then saved it. On my screen, the inserted row was visible and was the correct row height of 12.75. My goal was to insert the row so another user sitting next to me could enter information in the new row.

After I saved the workbook, and after the user sitting next to me saved her workbook, the row I inserted should have appeared exactly the same on her screen, but it did not. Instead, the inserted row showed up as a hidden row on her screen. It was there, but the row height was collapsed to the point of invisibility.

I repeated my attempt to insert a row which the other user could edit several times, but each time I got the same result. I could not make the row show up on her screen with a row height of 12.75.

Excel 2010 :: Formula That Will Work With Text And Numbers?

Dec 10, 2013

I am working in Excel 2010 (Windows 8) and am having real problems trying to find a function/formula that will work with both numbers and text. I am trying to identify if the contents of Col A cells and Col C cells on each row are duplicated within a worksheet, and if they are, to add a 'J'.

(Column A is a list of numerical company codes and Column C is a list of adviser codes using the letter A-G. If a company ID code has more than one of the same adviser codes referenced to it, it is termed 'Joint', hence the 'J').

The formula I've used is: =IF(A2:C2, FREQUENCY>1, "J")

But it tells me 'numbers only'.

Excel 2010 :: Using Macros As Navigation Tool?

Feb 3, 2013

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?

Excel 2010 :: Saving And Emailing Macros

Aug 26, 2013

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?

How Do I Create A Macro To Work In Shared Mode

Nov 11, 2009

Ive got a problem with a work book im working on at the moment, my company has various different documents created in excel, like a price list, cost price list & stock levels (all Independant) I have had the idea to join them all into a single shared workbook using an idea I found and modified over a year ago on this site, that had the promise of allowing multiple users to see the nessesary parts of the same document. the advantage of this being any new parts or prices or suppliers added would update all users at once. So ive got this workbook that when you open you get asked for a username & password this then hides/unhides, protects or unprotects to suit the users needs. This works great when unshared but when I share it the login box wont display

The Administrator username is jamie and the password is joshua

Running Macros In A Shared Workb

Dec 14, 2002

Whenever I share a workbook, I experience problems running macros that are problem-free otherwise. Iíve read the help menu about restrictions of using shared workbooks, but I did not run across anything that might explain this behavior. Iíve experimented with a few spreadsheets and I run across this problem in all cases. Can anyone help with an explanation or past experience? Iím assuming that by sharing a workbook, the workbook is automatically protected for both windows and structure. If this is what is causing the problem, is there code I can use to still allow my macros to run trouble free in a shared workbook?

Excel 2010 :: Print Preview Doesn't Work Properly?

First I made some contents and drew a border from Home > Font > all Borders on an Excel 2010 file. So it became like below image (capture1). After that I wanted to print it so went to File > Print to see its preview. But the problem is that the lines between tue and wed and also between mon and tue are not shown neither in preview nor when printing. The height of row 7 until 17 is 24 (that is 32 pixel) but heights of the rest of the rows are normal (20 pixel).
