Delete All Macros In Workbook?

Jan 4, 2011

I want to delete all macros from my workbook (so it will work well in Mac 2008). I went to Alt-F11 and deleted all Macros there and check every sheet and found no references. I did all that and when I try to open it in Excel for Mac it says there are still Macros.

How can I ensure my workbook has no macros?

Delete Macros In New Workbook OR Stop Them From Executing

Jul 7, 2014

I've got a macro embedded in a sheet (not in a module)..."Private Sub worksheet_activate()".

I have a macro that copies this specific sheet to a new workbook in order for other users to play with.

Problem is, when they select the new copied sheet in the new workbook, it tries to execute the "worksheet_activate" macro.

I've done searches on trying to delete macros but to no avail....

Encourage Enabling Of Macros: Disable Macros When Opening Then The Worksheet Menu Bar And Other Command Bars Are Still Available

Aug 26, 2009

I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.

Enable/Disable Macros When No Macros Are Present

Jul 28, 2008

I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.

I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.

No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?

Hiding Macros From The Run Macros List

Jul 14, 2008

Is there a way to hide a macro from the list where you choose which to run, but not in the VBA editor? The userbox I just created calls upon 2 different macros, and has a macro to bring up the userbox. I need a way to hide the macros in Module3 from selection, but keep the macros in Module4 available to choose to run.

Sep 12, 2006

How is code or functions kept unique to a workbook? for instance i create a few toolbars that are relevant to "work book 1", however when i open another workbook "2" the toolbars do not function properly or are removed by the opening/closing of the work book, similarly other macros seem to struggle with more than one workbbok open at a time.

How To Create Macros Buttons To Add Or Delete Columns And Rows

May 21, 2014

So I'm trying my hand at creating VBA buttons and functions that do the following.

Button 1 :
to add a column with every click. The button will create one extra column. So by design there will be at least 1 column. Example if the button is clicked twice it will create 3 columns. I just need a buffer col. (contains no data)

Button 2 :
to delete empty columns leaving only one empty buffer column. That is this button will purge empty columns except the buffer column. OR if ALL the columns are filled, Button2 will create the buffer column.

Eg. I click Button 1 three times. It creates four columns. I only fill two columns. When Button 2 is clicked it will delete all the empty colums except the buffer column. OR I fill in all four columns, there is no buffer column, when I click Button2 it will insert the buffer col.

Button 3 :
to add a row with every click. The button will create one extra row. So by design there will be at least 1 row. Example if the button is clicked twice it will create 3 rows. I just need a buffer row. (contains no data)

Button 4 :
to delete empty row leaving only one empty buffer row. That is this button will purge empty row except the buffer row. OR if ALL the columns are filled, Button4 will create the buffer column.

Eg. I click Button 3 three times. It creates four rows. I only fill two rows. When Button 4 is clicked it will delete all the empty rows except the buffer rows. OR I fill in all four rows, there is no buffer rows, when I click Button4 it will insert the buffer row.

In the sample file there are six columns filled with data. The 7th col is empty(the buffer column). The column after that calculates the average of data in filled columns. There are eight rows with data and the ninth row is the empty buffer row.

The "add" buttons must be able copy the format/formula of the column/rows BEFORE the buffer colums/rows and insert it before the buffer column/row.

How To Allow Users To Add / Delete Rows / Columns In Sheets With Macros

Mar 11, 2014

I have a sheet with macros that allows users to fill in data from columns F10 to O10 from row 10 to 54.

Column P will then make some computations based on the inputs from col F to O.
Row 55 will also make some computation based on inputs from row 10 to 54.

How to I modify the code below to allow users to either add/delete columns and rows such that it does not fowl up the computations?

The computation does not have to be at column P or at row 55, they can be dynamic and change depending on how many rows and columns the users delete/add.

A little background on what the code does. From Column F to O, the code UNLOCKS the columns only if user inputs date in Cell 3 of that particular column.

Example. Column F is locked from F10 to infinity at the start. Only when user inputs date into F3 does the cells F10:F54 is unlocked for user to input data.

This goes on until column O. I want users to be able to add more columns, or delete ones they don't need.

Workbook Protection In Macros

Oct 27, 2006

In addition to the code below that hides data if macros not enabled, prevents copy and cut (I know its still possible) I would like to as well as protect the sheets (which works fine) also protect the workbook to prevent moves etc. Unfortunately while the protection may be easily applied, the veryhidden bit to ensure macros are selected then conks out. Does anyone out there know of a way where say the workbook protection may remain and at the same time allow the veryhidden etc bits do their stuff as normal as if the workbook protection was off?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave _
(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
If Cancel = True Or bIsClosing = False Then Run "HideAll"
If SaveAsUI = True Then Cancel = True

End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Activate()
Dim oCtrl As Office.CommandBarControl
'Disable all Cut menus
For Each oCtrl In Application. CommandBars.FindControls(ID:=21)
oCtrl.Enabled = False
'oCtrl.Enabled = True
Next oCtrl...................

Using Macros To Delete Cells And Rows Based On Specific Criteria?

May 7, 2012

Each week I run a report that produces over 2,000 rows. I have to manually go through and delete things, by the time I am done, there may only be 320 rows left. I would apply a recorded macro, but the report is not consistent each week. There may be more or fewer rows depending on the week.

I would like to be able to run a macro that looks in column B for a specific value and if it contains that specific value, I would like the cells to the right of it to have their contents cleared.

Next, in column C, I have...

Employee2's Name
Employee2's Number


I would like to be able to delete the rows, starting from Employee 2 to just before the second SUB TOTAL.

So, all I would have left in column C is

Running Macros From A Separate Workbook

Jun 9, 2008

Our department receives weekly and fortnighly updated workbooks from a number of different departments. Each workbook contains 10s of worksheets. Our department analyzes the data and generates reports from those worksheets.

I have developed a few macros to automate the report generation for making the computing of my colleagues easier.

Now, the problem is that all the macros are developed behind individual sheets and some modules. For this reason, my colleagues have to copy each updated sheet and paste over the older ones individually, each and every time. It is really quite time-consuming task - deleting older data from all the worksheets and then copying fresh data on each of them, one by one.

They want to make their life easier by just replacing the entire workbooks with the new ones and still want the macros functioning, as usual.

My concern is how I can put all the code in a separate workbook and how to reference data from the other workbook.

Workbook To Open Only If Macros Are Enabled

Mar 29, 2009

I have created an Excel Workbook and this Workbook has a VBA code that enforces an expiry date of the workbook (TimeBomb from So, if the expiry date has passed, the workbook will not open. But since it is VBA related, the expiry date will work only if one has enabled macros. If macros are disabled, the workbook will open regardless of the date.

So, is there a way for Excel to check if macros are enabled? and is there a way for Excel not to open the workbook, if the macros are disabled?

Workbook Macros For New Numbers On Each Sheet

Oct 21, 2009

I've used excel for awhile now but never really tapped into the tough stuff. I'm trying to create a workbook for work for Purchase Orders. I figured excel would be workable. The big thing I need is that for each worksheet that is created, I need it to automatically have the next P.O. number on the sheet. I have no idea if that is possible though. Each worksheet will be the same style but the P.O. would automatically change from say 105 to 106 when the new sheet is made. I was hoping maybe the date could automatically be entered as well. That doesn't have to happen but it could be helpful. Working with Excel 2003.

Opening Workbook Without Macros But Timing Out?

Jun 3, 2012

I'm trying to open a workbook that someone sends me once a week, and suddenly it's timing out (hourglass) and not opening.

I know for a fact that he put in some formulas (but no macros) that reference a file only he has access to.

And, auto calculation, he leaves on.

I see the file open on one of the 3 sheets in it, but the hourglass never goes away, and when I Ctrl Alt Del, it says Excel is Not Responding.

Is there any way I can get this file to open so that I can fix it or transfer the raw data to a new workbook?
