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?
I've added some code the adds a button to a worksheet
Public Sub AddSheetPrintButton() Dim btn As Button Dim t As Range Set t = ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 6), Cells(1, 7)) ' button position Set btn = ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(t.Left, t.Top, t.Width, t.Height) With btn .OnAction = "sheetPrint" .Caption = "Print Sheet" .Name = "Print" .Font.ColorIndex = 10 End With End Sub
Im using Excel 2010 and have a data connection that I want to use. I added it to a regular workbook and it updates perfectly as-designed. However, I need this feature to work in a shared workbook, but it doesn't.
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 currently have a password secured excel file on my departs Q drive, which everyone can access unfortunately only 1 person can edit at a time. I tried to turn it into a workbook so we could all edit it at the same time but now some of the other users can't access the file at our other buildings throughout the county. This is for excel 2010. And I did select the share workbook, and allow multiple users to edit box. everything else is unchanged.
I have a workbook with 25 sheets containing metric information as part of a performance management model. Fundamental to this is the visual success or failure of each of these 25 sheets which I've highlighted by setting the worksheet tab colour accordingly. The code to achieve this is detailed below. This code is triggered by the Worksheet_Change event at the workbook level and works fine in single user mode. When the workbook is shared however, an error 1004 is generated.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) For Each c In Range("PassFail") If c.Value = "Fail" Then ActiveSheet.Tab.ColorIndex = 3 ElseIf c.Value = "Pass" Then ActiveSheet.Tab.ColorIndex = 4 End If Next c End Sub
I have made a list box and can see the data in it and make multiple choices. What I need to know how to do is put a small button and make the list box appear and make the selected choices, then hide the list box but the button visiable. I would to have check boxes and a scroll bar in the list box by the names but i am stumped. If you could show the code that will make this work that will be great!!! lets say cell B3 to B6 shows cat, dog, mouse, bird. I would check the box and choose cat and bird and have only these 2 show up in the cell B2 separated by a comma. So each line for about 100 lines down will need to have the same choices made but with equipment names, people ect. or is there something better that will work. I run Excel 2003 and windows xp.
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
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.
I would like to use a command button to copy a row of data from one workbook to a column in another workbook. The row of data will have different values on a daily basis but will always be B2 through BE2. I would like the copied row of data pasted in the next available column to the left in the other work book.
I am trying to enable a command button on opening the Workbook, However it dosent work. I have placed the command button on the worksheet. Programatically it gets disabled on clicking it once. So i want it to be reactivated on reopening the Workbook.
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.
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.
ActiveX control? (=EMBED("Forms.ComboBox.1","") They are filled using named ranges on another worksheet and work fine. The problem happens when I share the workbook the combo boxes become completely non-functional. They don't even drop down when clicked.
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.
i have an excel database regarding about 1000 different schemes having the details of their initiation date, budget allocated , up to date expenditure, this month expenditure and many others too. this is a shared workbook and relevant officers enter their data in their relevant columns and rows. the file is shared. now i want that any changes done by mr. A, for eg. at record No. 09 could be intimated to Mr. B who is working at record No. 560. may be via msg box or any other source.
I'm having a problem creating a Reset All command button that will remove user entered unlocked cell values from an entire workbook save for one specific worksheet. So for example, I have five tabs labeled as "DTF", "Week 1", "Week 2", "Week 3" and "Week 4". I want one single command button (placed in the "DTF" worksheet) to remove all of the unlocked cell values from "Week 1" to "Week 4".
I've recently created a macro which takes a .csv file and scrubs the data and dresses it up for a report. I've finally got it running without any problems and have added it individually to 5 different user accounts on my network as an add-in, but need a way to share it across a computer network without allowing others to edit the file.
The report is generated multiple times a day by the different users, none of whom are very computer literate (not that I am much better, myself), and the macro over-writes the old file each time. I've read that it's possible to simply create a shortcut to the file that automatically opens the spreadsheet in read-only format, which would be perfect for what I'm trying to do, but I haven't been able to get it to work so far.
On my computer at work (Windows 7) the shortcut simply opens the spreadsheet so that anyone can edit it, instead of as a read-only file. On my computer at home (I'm trying to experiment) (windows 8.1) it won't even let me save the shortcut, saying I need to provide administrator permission & then cutting to a window that says "access denied".
I won't have the pathway for the actual file I'm trying to create a shortcut for until tomorrow when I get back to work, but I've formatted it essentially the same, directing to the excel.exe file, running the switch "/R", and then directing it to the actual file location.
The ultimate goal is to have multiple people be able to view the file without locking out those who need to update it.
