Macro Error In Workbook - Entire Ribbon & Icons Greyed Out

Mar 3, 2009

I ran a simple macro that I created in my workbook, got a run-time error, clicked debug, clicked reset to stop the macro running, and now all of the icons in my workbook are greyed out. I can select cells, change worksheets, enter information in cells etc....just I can't save the workbook, or select any of the icons on my ribbon / in the office menu. Would really like to avoid terminating the application as I made a number of changes that I didn't save (doh doh doh).

Control Toolbox Not Appearing When Clicked

May 31, 2006

i have been having this problem with my version of excel at work and it is driving me crazy. First of all this is excel 2000. For a while now I have been unable to use the control toolbox - when I click it - nothing happens. In the meantime I havent been doing anthing really serious so I used the forms toolbar. I have tried using the control toolbox in word - and it works - just in case someone had been messing around and uninstalling things. Is there anyway that I have hidden it somewhere?

Control Toolbox Pops-Up When UserForm Run

Apr 22, 2008

i've gotta demo an Excel app in a few days and this never really bothered me, but someone recently pointed out that it can get distracting for the Control Toolbox to pop in and out randomly. the form is being built for use by other staff, and i suppose it would also be distracting for them if the toolbox arbitrarily appeared here and there. is there a way to turn it off?

VBA Print Preview And Control Toolbox Tools

Dec 9, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with check boxes and a combo box that are set to display in print preview as well as print. I have set up a Print Preview button on this spreadsheet, as well. When you click the Print Preview button and then click close on the preview window and return to the spreadsheet, the control toolbox tools appear out of place and are greatly magnified. Scrolling the screen down and then back makes them appear correctly once again.

I have seen this on this spreadsheet on three different computers. Does anyone have a clue what is going on?

Note, clicking the print preview button on the standard toolbar does not provide the same artifact. It works correctly.

Or for the cheap fix, what is the VB script to move the cursor to a different cell and then return back?

Allow Control Toolbox Textbox Font Editing

Sep 6, 2006

I have an excel workbook where on several of the worksheets I have Control Toolbox Textboxes inserted into the sheet. The Textboxes are for when a user wants to type notes onto the worksheet.

My issue is that the Textboxes do not allow the user to edit the font because the VBA project is locked.

How can I allow users to edit the font in the Textbox without giving the VBA password away to the user?

Counting Selections Made With Control Toolbox Controls

Apr 12, 2007

I am attempting to put in some dropdown boxes and text boxes and maybe some other items using the control toolbox in Excel. After a selection is made I would like to count that particular item. I was using the validation method in which all I needed was the following to sum up the selections made: =SUMIF(G:G,"Monday",I:I)

Now I realize this will not work due to the fact the control toolbox controls are embeded and merley sit on the cells. How do I sum selections made using drop down boxes that are derived from the control toolbox? If someone can give me an example to try or point me to a place to find such information that would be great.

Control Toolbox ComboBox To Return Chosen List Number

Aug 18, 2006

I'm using combo boxes. Initially I used combo boxes from the Forms toolbar, however the text in the combo box was to small. Now I'm using combo boxes from the Control tool bar. However, i would like the link cell to show the number of the entry in the list (like the forms control box) and not the actual entry. Is there an option I need to select in properties, or is there some VB code I can attach to the combo box ?

How To Use Conditional Icons To Text Column

Dec 21, 2012

I like to mark names of persons who have done consecutively well in last two years with green circle and those who have not with red circle using Icon sets. I have created 4 columns and filled 1st with names (Text), and other 3 columns are filled with their output scores (Numbers) over last three years (2010-12). Like to highlight those names who have done well in last two years (2011-12) as compared to the third year (2010).

For example:
Names Score 2012 Score 2011 Score 2010
John 168 153 144 (should mark with green circle)
Steve 201 182 181 (should mark with green circle)
Mary 98 102 110 (should mark with red circle)

Formula Using Arrow Icons To Show Trend

Nov 16, 2009

I'm trying to create a formula where I can show the trend of two values from one month to the next that shows wheather the results went up or down in a positive or negetive value. For example:

If I have a transfer % of 18% in October and November MTD is at 17% - the arrow would then reflect downward showing in green, as the lower percentage is better. but I need the arrow to show upward in Red if say the value for November MTD was 19% instead.

I tried conditional formatting and attempted an "If" formula. I must not have all the information to create the formula as it errors out on me. I can create it if only looking to reflect one arrow...

Paste Special Is Always Greyed Out

Jul 7, 2006

Paste Special is no longer available in the Edit menu--it's grayed out. (I am using Excel 2003). I can't find any info on what disabled it or how to re-enable. It's probably something moronically obvious, but this moron needs a shove in the right direction.
