Allow User To Choose From List Of Open Windows?

Mar 27, 2009

I have a few macros that need to work with various worksheets which are in different windows.

1. Make the user name the files a certain way for consistency
2. Make the user type the name of each window at the start of execution

I was wondering if there was a more flexible option though: one which would allow the user to choose from a list of open windows (similar to the Window>More Windows>Activate function in Excel).

Ideally the macro would run and say something like, "Which of the following open windows contains dataset1?" "Which of the following open windows contains dataset2?"

VBA Recognize Windows User Accounts And Allow Edit Access

Jul 22, 2009

I'm working on protecting a spreadsheet to where only certain people would be allowed to unprotect and edit it... I've used a standard password protection and created a userform prompting for password and unlocking the sheet, and this works fine.

On the other hand, I was interested if it's possible to write the code to where once the "unprotect" button is clicked it would seek User Account name from windows and try to match it with a list of users somewhere within the workbook. This way the user wouldn't be prompted for a password, but rather the unlocking would simply work or not depending on user account.

Prevent The User From Saving The Data Input From The User Form If Any Of Those Three Fields Is Left Blank

Feb 9, 2010

I have a user form that has a combo box "City" two text boxes one called "Flight" and the other "Date". What I'm trying to do is to prevent the user from saving the data input from the user form if any of those three fields is left blank. The code that I have so far checks all of the required fields, if any are left blank a message notifys which field(s) is left blank and return the focus back to that field. But the rest of code also fires.

What I really need is either to stop the code if any fields are blank and return the focus back to the blank field, the user completes the field(s) and clicks the save again, or better yet, pause the code until all the required fields are completed and then complete the save. (There is actually another 200+ lines of code in this sub, but I deleted it to keep the post a little shorter.)

Logon Box - User / Pass - Unique Actions Per User.

Apr 2, 2009

I have a workbook that is used to track overtime hours worked through the year. I've received some help from users on this forum, and others, to create the necessary macros and formulas to allow a supervisor to make use of the form; however, the workbook is also used to track those that wish to volunteer to work overtime each weekend. The sheet has a list of names for the employees on each shift, then a column to allow a "Y" to be placed under the date - designating them as a volunteer for any overtime available. I've found this spreadsheet (attached - from this site) that will allow individual users to access the workbook and have unique passwords for each. I don't completely understand how it works, but I feel it may be a start to getting what I want.

Essentially, once the user selects their name and inputs their password, I'd like the workbook to be opened and then allow them to only manipulate the row associated with their name. That row will change from week to week, so specific numbers will not be able to be used, but their name will be the same as the name used in the logon.

I feel like I'm asking for a lot here, so just some initial guidance on whether this type of thing is possible would be an acceptable answer.

how to get informazion with VBA code about the name of the user who opened already a workbook on the network.

Usually if somebody wants to open a file that is opened by another user, office applications give informations that the file is open and about the name who opened that file.

Is it possible to get this information with VBA code, too?

Log User Changes

Jul 28, 2007

I am trying to integrate an optimization model to a simulation model using VBA in Excel. I am using ShellandWait and calling some batch files to call scripts for application command line operation. Everything ran fine until I tried to read in additional data using modules from an Excel add-in that I customized (err, more like butchered actually). Now, as far as I can tell sporadically (the call to the new module occurs randomly), Excel just closes in the middle of the simulation. Are there certain types of errors that behave this way? Is there someway to view or create an error log or similar, that I can go over after the crash?


I actually solved the problem (it was a database timer expiration initiated in a fortran routine by the customized add-in). This was just pure dumb luck - in effect, I was trying the brute force approach and happened to hit the solution relatively early. If anyone knows of some method of logging Excel or VBA activity (I guess that is the right term)

User Name And TimeStamp

Dec 29, 2006

Is there a way to put a time stamp with the users name into an adjacent cell when a cell is updated?

In case that didnít make sense I will tell you what I need this for. We are creating new time cards that require both employee and manager approval on them. We have many remote employees and getting their signature can be a pain. If they could click a button on the time card that stamped their name and time that would be ideal. They would then send to their manager they would click to verify the time and it would stamp it as well.

Add A User Name To Spreadsheet

May 6, 2007

I have designed a spreadsheet in the office where I work, and think it would be quite flashy (gimiky) if I could have the spreadsheet show the name of the user logged on.

At the minute if I try and access a sheet currently open by another user it will come up with the standard message 'workbook1.xls is currently in use by xxxxx' then you open a read only copy until they have finished.

I was thinking there must be some way of importing this information to excel to display something like 'welcome (xxxxxxxx)(user currently logged on)'

The other part of my problem is that the excel sheet will only display the network uername of the user, but I have seen spreadsheets that cross reference this to the Microsoft Outlook global address list on the MS Exchange server, and display the users actual name.

In a nutshell, I just want to know is there anyway the excel spreadsheet can display the username currently logged into the shared spreadsheet.

VBA Re User Prompt

Oct 4, 2008

I have created an addin that runs several macros. To enable the user to undo any changes, I keep a backup prior to them using any of the macros in the form of a worksheet named back00xx. I want a prompt to be displayed to the user to remove these backups at the closing or saving of the file. The problem is that as an addin, how do I get it to display this prompt as the open workbook is not part of the addin.

Could one have a looping routine that is checking every xx min/sec to check if the current workbook contains any sheets starting back00

User Form

Feb 24, 2009

I have a user form that I want to take the information and have it input on the worksheet. I want it to start at A3 and check to see if that cell is "" and if it is not then enter the data from the from horizontally. If A3 is not "" then continue down column A untill the first nonblank cell is and then select that cell and have the data entered horizontally.

I have this code so far but it is not working.

Private Sub cmdSubmit_Click()
Dim Month As Variant

Month = Me.cmbMonth.Value


I have done a bit of excel programming last year but have not done any for the last 4 months so I am a bit rusty.
