I would like to do is develop a stand alone program in Visual Basic ( not in Excel VBA) to update the price file in our Portfolio system automatically using the downloaded Excel format file csv extention file from the BigCharts. But before that, I need to export the *.pri file from our Portfolio system in to Excel which still saves as *.pri extention. Then once it updates, I import the updated *.pri file back in our Portfolio program. I understand that the Excel VBA code can be incorporated in Visual Basic code provided there is an object declaration for Excel file (In this case eventhough the both files are in Excel format, they don't have xls extention). how to use external files and Excel VBA code in Visual Basic?
Below is the code that I currently have in Visual Basic. What I'm trying to accomplish is using the ticker (eg. msft) as a keyword search to look up in the price file. If found , the price of that ticker from the test.csv file will be copied in to the price file which is test.pri. I haven't ran it yet.
Sub UpdatePrice(BigChartPath As String, BigChartName As String, AxysPricePath As String, AxysPriceName As String) 'Below are Excel VBA codes 'Uses the test.csv to look up tickers in test.pri and update the price in it Dim PriceFile As Workbook, BigChartFile As Workbook Dim PriceFileSheet As Worksheet, BigChartSheet As Worksheet Dim MaxRows As Long Dim PriceFileRow As Long Dim BigChartRow As Long Dim BigChartFound As Boolean Call CheckBookOpen(BigChartPath & BigChartName) Call CheckBookOpen(AxysPricePath & AxysPriceName) Set BigChartFile = Workbooks(BigChartName) 'Big Chart website imported CSV file saved as test.csv...............
Is there a code you can type in to VBA to allow a picture in a spreadsheet to change when a parameter is specified. For example i have a picture of a timber beam i drew in excel. and i wondered if i could set it up so that when the user inputs the length of beam they are using, the diagram alters to show the length specified.
My company "makes widgets". Each "type of widget" is associated in our internal database with a record locator (five alpha characters). Our company website can also use that record locator to pull up a webpage specifically dedicated to that widget. In addition to the webpage itself, the website also creates an expanded URL which contains additional information about that widget.
I'd like my macro to take a list of record locators, open up the company website related to each specific widget, pull back the expanded URL, and do some text management with the URL to populate other parts of the spreadsheet.
For example, if my record locator is "ABCDE", my macro would go to the website, "http://www.widgets.com/ABCDE". The site then redirects to an expanded URL: "http://www.widgets.com/whole-bunch-of-data-about-the-ABCDE-widget". I'd hope to write a macro which pulls back the expanded URL and does some magic with the "whole bunch of data" part. I've been told that the MSHTML library would be useful for a project of this type. I've been able to connect my spreadsheet to that library, but then I'm not sure what to do with it.
Have a project going and have had a disturbing trend develop. I'm working in Excel 2003. Upon opening the file and enabling macros, I started receiving File/Path errors, at which point it would shut down the application. When opened, I have a splash that would come up, but it wouldn't go to the next userform. At this point I would get the error message and the file would be closed. If I then reopened the file, disabled macros, saved under a different file name, and then reopened with macros enabled, everything worked fine, until I shut it down and then tried to reopen, at which point the same error would occur.
Lately I have simply been getting the Microsoft Excel dialogue box telling me an unexpected error occurred and it had to be shut down. I'm at a loss for what is causing this. The last time this happened, when Excel recovered the file, it told me a repair had been done, and the repair was to basically delete all of the VBA code from the file.
I am encountering a situation wherein each line of VBA code is essentially compiled as I type on that line, instead of when I move to a different line. For example, if the code I entered is incorrect, the compiler waits about half a second and then turns it red. Also, if I enter a space, it deletes it immediately.
I'm sure this is something I've accidently pressed while using VB. My text cursor has changed from the usual 'I' shape to a black box shape. Now instead of adding text where I'm typing it now types over previous work. Is there an easy fix for this.
If Range("CustInfo") = False Then Range("ICompany, IPhone, IFax, IContact, ICell, IEmail, IAddress, IPOBox, ICity, IState, IZip").Select Selection.ClearContents Else Range("IJobDescription").Select Selection.ClearContents End If
For I = 1 To 5 Range("Qty" & I).Select Selection.ClearContents Next End Sub
keeps giving me an error 400. I have reinstalled xl just to see if it was related toan error I recieved earlier relating to VBE6.dll. This still works in another workbook but it doesn't work in this one. All I did was change the Range names and cleaned it up a bit.
Whenever I run a macro on excel the Microsoft VB editor opens and shows me what the macro looks like. It also runs the macro. Now, I would very much like it to keep running macros, but I really don't need to see my code every time. It gets really annoying, and I need to run about 40 or 50 different macros on one sheet. How can I make it go away?
PS! It's Excel 2007 for students, Norwegian version.
I have four columns in my worksheet. In column C, I need to find the no. of times word "Alarm" is occuring. Further, with each "Alarm" entry in col C, there is a alarm type given in column D. I need to find the no. of alarms for each type and then display a bar chart for the alarm type vs. frequency of its occurence.
Now, the xlBook.Add() line is something I just added. I am not sure if it works but i dont think it does. Everytime i try to use Workbooks.Open it tells me that i need to decalre Workbooks, which i thought i did with xlBook. Anyway, I cant get it to work, something is throwing it out of whack.
I have a cell that I do no want anyone to enter any information into unless a previous cell has "U" inside of it.
Okay so so I have a column of cells named "Fringe Benefit Type" you can choose different letters to corropand to different types. Now I have set the letter "U" to be the one I want and that works. Now the next cell is called "Hire Season". Now (stay with me here) IF "Fringe Benefit Type" is equal to "U", I don't want the user to be able to enter anything into "Hire Season".
I am using the visual basic thing, which already has some code, but I am not understanding it too well.
I have been running a macro on a continuous loop to collect data for months. Yesterday I added something small to the macro and now it does not select cells. I tried closing excel, opening a new page and have a simple macro
Sub Please_Work () Range('A4').Select End Sub
If I have VBA open and step through it (F8), it does NOT work. If I run the sub (play button), it does NOT work. If I close VBA, and run the macro it DOES work.
I have a excel file that was created by someone else 7 years ago - I still want the formulas that were created but I have updated the information on the spreadsheet and now the macro will not work
Sub DataSort01() ' ' DataSort01 Macro ' Macro recorded 11/18/00 by Terry Schiesser ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+t ' Selection.AutoFilter Selection.AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=">0", Operator:=xlAnd End Sub
when I do the ctrl+t it wants to debug I select the debug option and then it goes to the screen above but the "Selection.Autofilter" is highlighted.
I am creating a user input form where the user can enter data about what they have eaten on a certain day. I am using radio buttons, so when the radio button has been clicked, it automatically puts something into cell A1. What has been put into cell A1 will then be used to say what is in the combo box named Cbo_FoodItem. I have used the following With Me.Cbo_FoodItem If Worksheet("na").Range("A1") = "carbs" Then Cbo_FoodItem.List = Worksheet("foodtable").Range("B2:B215").Value End If End With
However, when i try to test it, i get an error which then highlights the "Worksheet" after IF and says "Sub or Function not defined". Obviously there is something wrong with the formulae, however i cannot work it out. Please help. I've only just started using visual basic, but i am starting to get the gist of it.

I have a problem with my VBA Editor. I have the Projects Window at the top left of the screen, the Properties underneath it and, normally, the Userform/Code window fillint the rest. However, The userform/code window is not behaving as before. When you try to get one or the other they open in another window whereas I'm pretty sure that they just opened in the same window.
I realize that this is very long, but the VB editor does not see it all as the same line, and therefore I get a Compile error: Expected: list separator or ). Is there a way to have this all on the same line?
