Is it possible to force an addin to be installed in Excel 2003 using VBA? I have a spreadsheet that uses the solver.xla addin in a vba macro. It works fine on my machine, where I have manually ticked SOLVER in Tools>Addins and manually added a reference. However, it does not work when I send to someone else. It seems that the addin is not being installed. I have VBA code that opens it:
On Error Resume Next
s = Application.LibraryPath & "solversolver.XLA"
but even with this, i get a "Unexpected internal error occurred, or available memory as exhausted" when I try to run the following
The one way to make it work is manually going into Tools>Addins and ticking it. This is confusing me as the above, along with the code that opens it, should not even require a reference, but it doesn't work without it
I have an addin in a shared folder which was created by someone else. (it is a user form). I need to create a macro which will go to its existing folder and then save it in the users personal addin folder also picking up their user id. There will be about 100 users so easier this way than going round doing it for them.
So I suppose the query is three fold.
1, pick up the addin and save it in a personal addin folder. 2, Find the username as part of the path file. For instance my personal would be:
"C:Documents and SettingsO033116Application DataMicrosoftAddIns"
The "O033116" is where I will need a search completed to obtain the user id.
The addin is called ServiceCredt.xla
3, Activate the installed addin.
The reason I want it this way is so the user is unable to access any of the code and we are in control.
I have an Excel Addin that I deploy as a read-only addin on a server share. I instruct my co-workers to add the Add-In as they would any other Add-In, but I tell the to answer NO to the Windows question "Copy 'AddinName' to the Addins folder for John Doe?".
That way, everyone will be working with the server version of the addin, and any time I want to roll out an updated version I just place a new addin file on the server. The next time the users restart Excel, the new version is loaded.
Except users never follow directions and some of them click the default 'Yes' when asked and get a local copy of the addin and never receive updated versions of the addin.
How do I disable the "Copy Addin" question completely? I don't want to depend on the user. I know this is possible because I have this 3rd party addin that we use that is installed from c:Program Files and it just stays there and you're never asked to copy the addin when you install it in Excel.
I got a file from someone that uses a Calendar Control in a user form, but my machine does not seem to have it installed, and Excel removes the control. I have Excel 2003 with SP2. I use the same version on my home machine but it does have Calendar Control, and the file works fine there. I tried copying the MSCC.* files from the OFFICE11 directory from home to this machine. Is there some straightforward way to install that control?
I would like to save a Sheet as a PDF, however I do not have access to install a PDF-printer service (like PDF995 etc) on all the PCs at work. I've been Google-ing for the past week, and there are a lot of options out there, however all the options I have found fall into 3 categories;
- Prohibitively epensive - Install a Printer - Convert text only
I need something that mimics the output of Distiller (which I have at home) as either an excel addin or a stand-alone program which I can run via Shell. (I should be able to cope with the VBA for this : D) I don't need charts etc printed, however I do need a simple graphic (logo) to be included.
I wish to add a add in in exel XP 2002 with Windows SP2. For that I have three file has to install:
1 fichier.lgc has to install in Windows applog First problem I do not find this repertory hidden under same XP SP2 with the good options to select in Windows to explore. Thus I have to arrange this file in Windows appPatch and in Windows Prefetch in the place and the problem comes from I think.
1 fichier.xll has to install in office xlstart 1 fichier.ppp has instaler in office xlstart
And when the double click on the fichier.xll for the throw the error message is as follows “WinRT Driver not installed”. Thus my questions are is this normal that I do not find the file Windows applog under win XP SP2 and how to install WinRT driver. Or then where to arrange my fichier.xll which must normally be in the repertory Windows applog
The only problem is, the web query will only work properly if it is in Excel 2007 (2003 will parse the table in a way that is not acceptable). However, when I tried to run the script, the stubborn Excel 2003 will show up. I even tried to uninstall the Office Compatibility Pack and the stubborn Windows will only run Excel 2003 and ask me to download the Office Compatibility Pack instead of giving me Excel 2007.
I tried to open it up using Open With...and it did not work, I even tried to regserver and unregserver and that did not work as well. Somehow Windows thought the only Excel I have is Excel 2003.
Is there anyway I could change the VB Script so that it would force Excel 2007 to open?
We are running Office 2010 part of Office Professional Plus 1010 (corporate install). We have added both the Analysis Toolpak and Analysis Toolpak - VBA to the add-Ins and have the button on the toolbar, however when we click on the button, we don't get the popup window allowing the user to pick the analysis tool they want to use. Have tried this on a number of PCs (we all run the same version) and it doesn't work on any of them.
I have written a class that can be used as a replacement for Application.FileSearch in Excel 2007, that will take the same parameters etc. with no, or minimal code adjustments.
How do I now alter this so that it can be used as an AddIn by others?
I think that I have to remove all the sheets apart from 1 from the document, and save it as an .xla, but I am struggling with making this an addin, and then being able to use the addin from other code.
Does anyone have some instructions or a link to a website that could direct me? I have done a google search, but search for Excel, VBA, and classes (as well as AddIns), just gives lots of links to classes (as in teaching).
I did modify some codes inside my addin, then did save the modified addin file by pressing the save icon from the VBA window..........but i found that the addin file was saved without the modification made to it. so i lost all modification did to the file. i donot know what i did wrong ?
I'm stuyding the book "Professional Excel Development" which has a Project Template and an addin with several modules and a worksheet. I can view the addin's modules but not it's worksheet - is this normal for addin's? I haven't worked with them much before.
I have found an addin (http://www.quantdec.com/Excel/smoothing.htm) that adds a worksheet function smoothing data. It operates with 2 arguments: - a range for the input data to smooth - a parameter detailing how to do the smoothing.
It outputs a matrix of smoothed results, and therefore requires the Ctrl-Shift-Enter on a spreadsheet. Until there no problem, the function works properly. However I need to repeat the process about 100 times. Therefore I extended my ranges to duplicate the calculations, and that also worked fine. But because I don't need the intermediate data (100 columns by 1000+ rows) and I don't like to wait 2 minutes for the calculations to finish each time I open the saved file again, I thought I could just use VBA and only output the final results.
This is how the working syntax is in a cell: =SMOOTH(B3:B1032, "5RSSH,5RSSH,>,5RSSH")
And there the nightmare starts : - I cannot apply it even once: I get a type mismatch whatever I do to calculate the range and put it as an argument of the function. I used a string to store the range name and use it as is (B3:B1032 or even "B3:B1032") or with the Range function Range("B3:B1032"). I even tried to put manually "B3:B1032" with the same result. First major issue
- Because the worksheet function requires a range, I cannot use an array, or at least I tried without success. Therefore I need to output the result on the worksheet each time it is processed, and reread it through the formula, for n times the loop is running for... Kind of inconvenient... So I tried to modify the original smooth() function to create a new one that would accept an array as argument instead of range, but with the same consequence: Type mismatch when I feed the new function with an array (which I checked contains the data to process).
I have tried an example I found somewhere using a built-in Excel Worksheet function MMult and it worked with ranges:
Dim xArray As Variant, yArray As Variant, zArray As Variant Dim Fn As Object Set Fn = Application.WorksheetFunction
I have an addin "My Menu" that runs several routines. These routine require the sheet to be converted to text "Sub text ()" no problem so far. But I want to warn the user that the sheet is about to be converted to text.
Is there a VBA way of displaying a message box when "My Menu" is clicked on that says "Sheet will be converted to Text OK ?"
how to automate AddIns sequence when opening Excel? I have 5 different AddIn (xla) and I have to launch them in a specific order (after the menu Essbase is installed - with xll) cause I'm adding rows in that menu. Excel is launching my xla's in alphabetical order but before Essbase is installed.
I am having a strange error occur. I am trying to debug a function in an add-in I developed, but whenever I try to hover over a value or add a watch, the whole application crashes. It runs without crashing when I don't try to debug it.
I am trying to write a sub for an addin to delete all names in the active workbook. The code that I tried is below. I run the sub and the messageboxes appear, etc., but none of the names are deleted. I have no idea what is going wrong. I have looked at the earlier related posts and have not had any luck.
Sub namesdeleteall() Dim intConfirm As Boolean Dim NM As Name
intConfirm = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete all name?", vbOKCancel, "Delete All Names??")
If intConfirm = 1 Then
For Each NM In ActiveWorkbook.Names NM.Delete Next
I created an addin with CUSTOM tab (used custom UI editor) to manipulate the ribbon xml.It works fine at home computer and @ work I distributed and install in user> addin directory and activated using excel options> addin>
But the ribbon I created does not appearing (tried on couple of computers) no luck
When running the following code for NSLookup in a module within the current workbook, it runs fine but when I put it in a XLAM file and try and use it as an addin I only get #NAME? as a result. I believe that that addin is installed properly because I have a second module with a sub routine in it (GetIPStatus) that is working, and when entering the command =NSLookup(A2) in a cell it shows up properly like it's an available function, but it does not seem to execute. Do I have to do anything special for a function to run as an addin?
I have a addin and I ahve some code wriiten in the Workbook_BeforeClose event. On click some "Copy Sheets" menu option in my addin it creates a new workbook and copies some sheets from the addin to the new workbook.
But I want somehow have the code written in Workbook_BeforeClose event of my addin to be copied too...Since I am coping only the sheets , workbook events are not copied.
When I Step through (Using the f8 Key) the below code -- Comments Explain my problem/Question
Sub SetUpTable() Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual ' Without entering this line the Macro in the next line or two), jumps to and begins running a UDF in a VBE ADDIN 'Module marked as Volitile For TheYear = 1 To 5 Cells(1, TheYear + 1).Value = 1990 + TheYear
I want to uninstall an addin from another addin. The problem arises when the addin i want to uninstall contains events similar like auto_open and workbook_addininstall It seems that they get triggered even when i close the addin That way i loose controll over the programsequence. And that is the thing i don't want. If someone has a solution, that would be great. Otherwise i have to reorganize everything and merge two addins in to one And i really don't like all the extra work
I have created a workbook as an addin. After the addin has been installed I can't make the original workbook active again either through VBA or the Window -> Select Workbook Name function. The code is below.
Private Sub Workbook_AddinInstall() Dim Wbook As String Wbook = ActiveWorkbook.Name Call AddToolbars Workbooks(Wbook).Activate End Sub
Sub AddToolbars() Dim customBar As CommandBar Dim myControl As CommandBarButton Set customBar = CommandBars.Add("Concur Reports") Set myControl = customBar.Controls _ .Add(Type:=msoControlButton) With myControl .FaceId = 2 .OnAction = "Main" End With customBar.Visible = True End Sub
Is it possible to make a setting in the registry, so next time excel opens the addin is not "marked" in the addins-list. I can't do it manually because, because the close_event in the addin will be executed and that will screw things up. Currently I'm looking at the regkeys: addin-manager and options, I see a change in the registry if I close XL when I unchecked an addin from the addin-list. It looks promising, but Iám not familiar with it
