I've created some macros in Excel 2010 which I've added to the Quick Access Toolbar and want to show them using some of my own icons rather than the ones that show when you click the 'Browse' button. There is no option to navigate to any other location.
Is it possible to access icons other than the set provided?
When adding functions to the quick access toolbars in Excel 2007 sometime they do not have an associated icon with the function. The icon shows as a green circle. How to change the icons and also to have a selection of icons like you have had in previous versions of Excel?
I have written a macro. The macro in question simply shows a user form. There is far more code within the user form itself. It is designed to automatically format a workbook.
I saved the macro as an .xlam add-in file to the default folder. I then added a button for the macro to my Quick Access Toolbar. This seemed to work great.
However, when I open a new file that I want to run the macro on, the button disappears. In fact, a 2nd Excel window opens up on my task bar. The original window still has the macro button, but the new window does not.
I would like to create/use a copy command in the Quick Access Toolbar that combines Paste Values and Transpose into a single command. Have tried recording a macro but it becomes specific to the individual workbook that I'm accessing and it copies the formula from that last cell that I copied from. Problem is that I have 19 workbooks to deal with and would like to save some keystrokes.
I have a validation drop down menu with the 12 months in it on Sheet 1. User picks the current month from the drop down list. I have 12 macros in the workbook, one for each month. Based on what month the user selects from the drop down, I would like to run a specific macro. The macro hides specific columns on sheet 2 of the workbook.
for example...user picks May from drop down which triggers macro MAY to run. If user picks Jun next month, macro JUN will run.
Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.
We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.
I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx
Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!
I need to send out an order form (spreadsheet) to 100's of people that need to complete the form and email back to me as an attachment. If I was completing the order form myself I would use the "email" icon that I have pinned to my Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). However, most of the recipients don't even know the Toolbar exists.
Is there a way I can insert an icon / hyperlink in the spreadsheet that does the same thing as the QAT icon. I can insert text to say "click here to email your order" (or similar).
I need to keep it in an excel format and an icon is so much better that asking them to save to their hard-drive and attach to an email, etc.
The QAT icon is exactly what is needed but I need to provide a spreadsheet that works for folk who haven't got the icon.
I'm working on a sheet with about 10,000 rows and 8 columns worth of data. Most of them are formatted as 12345,12345,12345,23456 how they are supposed to be, but some of them will have spaces inbetween each sequence, or some even a couple spaces, or spaces at the end. For the most part I can use the replacement function with ", " to "," but some of the double spaces throw it off, and end spaces also. Is there a macro that can just search through the selected cells I pick to just remove all spaces so the data falls back onto the commas?
I've developed a fairly simple procedure which lets me reformat cell backgrounds in a worksheet after various cut/paste operations.I've created a template called BASIC.XLTM which has this code in it. I've added a button to the QAT to enable me to invoke the procedure, but when I click the button to do the reformat, it works for the active sheet, but it also invokes another instance of BASIC.XLTM.
I am taking an EXCEL(online) class and in my current assignment i am to create a 'list' for sorting and querying. However i cannot find the 'list' option, under my DATA option on the toolbar. I have tried all my toolbars and shortcuts but I am unable to find it anywhere.
I can't find the Pivot Table icon in the toolbar. I tried "Insert", I can only see the 'table' icon, but cannot see the 'pivot table' icon. how can I find this 'pivot table' icon, or create it in the tool bar?
I've written a ton of VB macros that do various things to a raw data sheet. I want now to create a custom menu (in the the menu ribbon bar at the top of the screen). I'd like this menu to be used to activate the various macros for whoever has my add-in.
I've found several examples on how to create an add-in, and creating custom menus, however they all for when someone opens a workbook with the code, and then they remove the custom menu when the workbook is closed. I would like my custom menu to stay on the users ribbon bar no matter what workbook they have open. The only time the custom menu should not appear is if the user removes the add-in.
I noticed that my custom "Close without Saving" button stopped working. I checked the VBA editor and my Personal workbook was missing and all of my personal macros were gone. I restarted excel, same issue. Rebooted my machine and they re-appeared. Not sure how what happened, but at least the Personal workbook was not lost. I'm working off my company's network, so often I get the "Personal Workbook is locked for editing" message. I usually select the open as read-only file and go about my merry way. Perhaps I clicked something different on accident without paying attention.
Anyway, I digress, the custom macro button that I had in my ribbon still didn't work, so I removed it and tried again in both the ribbon and the quick access toolbar with no success. The Macro executes if I execute it manually or via the keyboard shortcut, but the ribbon/quick access toolbar buttons won't work. Frustrating, because I use this quite often. I've even tried writing a quick "dummy" macro to see if it was some sort of code error related to the macro, but got the same result. My "Close without saving" code is below (super basic code).
Sub Close_Without_Saving()'' Close_Without_Saving Macro' Closes active workbook without saving changes.'' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+q' ActiveWorkbook.Close (False)End Sub
I recently moved to Central America and now am working on models that are either in $ or in the local currency (Q). I do not want to change my default currency value in the regional settings of the control panel because it is more convenient for me to stay in $ but it is a pain everytime I want to set a worksheet in Q and not in $.
So, I am wondering how I can change the default values in the currency drop-down list on the Home toolbar under Numbers in Excel 2010.
Currently, it gives me the change to apply the following currencies:
- $ English (US) - £ English (UK) - € Euro (€ 123) - ¥ Chinese (PRC) - fr. French (Switzerland)
Instead of either the £, ¥ or fr., I would like to have listed the Q, my other frequently used currency.
My fill down menu does not pop up once I click and drag down over several cells. I have checked my options, under advanced, and it is checked .
I can use the right click and fill down and THAT menu pops up, but I will want the regular left click menu to pop up as I am accustomed to using it. I am thinking it's a keyboard shortcut that I may have inadvertently clicked to disable it.
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.
I was making a custom Menu Bar in excel. In order to troubleshoot I executed the code a no. of times, resulting in multiple but same menu bars in excel application. Now the problem is that even if I quit excel, the menu bars dont seem to go..How do I get rid of them.
Need to code to create a custom floating menu which appears on opening the workbook. It works brilliantly, but I'd like to adapt it so that I can create a floating toolbar, which is fully expanded upon opening, where the button faces are plain text which I designate. Let's suppose the macros I want the buttons to trigger are called MacroA and MacroB, and that the text on the buttons should read "Do A" and "Do B".
Sub Create_Menu() Dim MyBar As CommandBar Dim MyPopup As CommandBarPopup Dim MyButton As CommandBarButton Delete_Menu 'make sure commandbar isn't already running Set MyBar = CommandBars.Add( Name:="My Menu", _ Position:=msoBarFloating, temporary:=True) With MyBar .Top = 175 .Left = 850 Set MyPopup = .Controls.Add(Type:=msoControlPopup) With MyPopup .Caption = "My Tools" 'change to suit....................
how to manage a custom faceid. Though, I am not too sure as to how to assign an actual icon to a custom toolbar. I can try the pasteface method; though as the source file is a .png; the picture might be too small.
Trying to write a VBA code to add a new menu item with submenus on the Standard toolbar when Workbook_Open and then deleting it (_Before close). Just having trouble with the creating of the menu item. Here is what I have so far:
Sub Workbook_Open() ... Dim menuitem As CommandBarPopup Set Menu = Application.CommandBars("Menu Item").Controls.Add (Type:=msoControlPopup, Before:=13) ... End Sub
We have a spreadsheet on a server location with macros. Different users will access the spreadsheet from one pc on different shifts. Is there a way to set the area as a Trust Location for all users on the PC or enable the macros in the spreadsheet to execute for all users without having to set up the spreadsheet trust location or macros for each user? I would like to have the spreadsheet accessable to any user on the PC without setting up individual access. The users can change for shift to shift.
I would like to use the attached "menu maker" file I found on Ron De Bruin's site using a Sheet to build the menu, yet be able to place it before the Help menu as suggested by this site [url] by finding the position of Help.
I have amended the code yet receive a "Compile error: Variable not defined" error.
I would like to develop a user-friendly Excel 2010 spreadsheet that would allow the user to enter from 1 to 10 (i just picked this number at random just to have an upper limit) employee numbers in cells A1-A10 and "click" on the VBA Code button that would invoke an Access Query and in the process return all the applicable data gathered from the query back into the Excel Spreadsheet. Believe it or not, I can do all this mentioned so far. BUT what i cant do is my second option for the user which is allow them to pull ALL of the employees back into the spreadsheet using the same query.
In summary, using Excel as a frontend dashboard, I know how to get a specific number of employees' information from a query and I know how to get all employees' information from a query but I dont know how to get either/or. In other words, I could do this with two queries and two "VBA-Code" buttons but I would like to do it with one query and one button.
I am using Excel 2010 .I have set up Data validation for a dropdown box so I can select from a list of items. In the old versions of Excel the actual drop down arrow used to appear in each cell. In the version I have, the drop down arrow only appears when you select the actual cell. When I did the validation I checked the " In-Cell Dropdown", but it still doesnt put the arrow in the cell. Is this functionality available in Excel 2010 ?
My second issue is a formula.
The last name is in a list of items and users have to select Yes or No to theitems on the list. I am wanting to create another spreadsheet that automatically populates based on their responses.
In short, I want to be able to set up a rule or formula that states if the answer in column A is "y" then I need the information in column B to be displayed.
The ultimate aim is to get a automatic sub set, (in another tab), of the orginal information based on users responses.
I'm running Windows XP with Excel 2010. I would like to be able to have a group of 19 boxes of which each box has a unique entry, ie 1, 3B, 5C etc. Each box I'd like to have a way in which when selected only the single or dual unique characters show as a color. See attached spreadsheet with sample. When a cell with lets say 1 is selected, a drop box appears and the color and description are shown. Select a color but only show the 1 and the color selected, leaving behind the description. How can I do this for all 19 boxes. This seems like its a classic conditional format. Unfortunately it appears to be several orders of difficulty than a normal conditional format.
