Show Custom Error Message If Opening Workbook Macro Code Fails

May 17, 2008

I cannot figure out how to get my error handler to work, or actually, not work. It seems to work fine when there is an error, but the code still gets read even when there was not an error. Basically, I am trying to open a file, which may or may not be there. When it is not there I want a message to pop up informing the user. However, when the file is there and it opens, the error handler still gives the message box. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Private Sub btnOK_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim LCSfile As String
LCSfile = frmSelectFile.Listbox1.Value
On Error Goto ErrHandler
Workbooks.Open Filename:=sPath & sDate & "" & LCSfile & "QUANT.CSV"
MsgBox ("File is not quantitated. Please select another file.")
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Vba Code: Copy To Another Sheet Fails

Mar 25, 2007

Run-Time Error: 438
Object doesn't support this property or method.

Two things to note: This code was placed in the worksheet, something new I am trying and two the error line is not highlighting in yellow (as it normally does) indicating the line w/ the infraction.

Option Explicit

Sub QuickView()

Dim Wss As Worksheet 'Source Worksheet
Dim Wsd As Worksheet 'Destination Worksheet
Dim LRow As Long

Set Wss = Workbooks("TGSItemRecordMaster.xls").Worksheets(" Record Creator")
Set Wsd = Workbooks("TGSItemRecordMaster.xls").Worksheets("Quick View")

LRow = Wss. Cells(Rows.Count, "w").End(xlUp).Row - 4

Wss.Range("W3" & LRow).Copy Wsd("A3")

Code Fails When Called From Private Sub

Aug 22, 2007

I'm having a hard time with this piece of

Private Sub Assign1Combo_Change()
If Range("ComboVisible") = False Then Exit Sub
End Sub

- As soon as this is used, Excel/VBA can't select any range on the worksheet. For example, the following code (within the sub Assign1_Download) no longer works:


Excel/VBA doesn't select that Named Range or any other range I try (ex. A1). - This problem only happens in Excel 2003. In Excel 2002 everything works fine (can make any selection).

Excel 2007 :: Code Fails To Put Results In Cell

I have the equivalent of Vlookup code(I couldn't get vlookup to work correctly) I am using Excel 2007. I have an array 2 cols x 1652 rows. I have another column of 6264 items. If a text item in the first column of the array matches a text item (minus 3 characters) in the longer column, I place the matching row from the array next to the item in the longer column. Whats not working is that the text never gets put in the cell.

Macro Fails When Data Is Filtered?

Mar 14, 2014

I have a macro that sends a sheet via email when the engineer has completed it and clicks a button. I added a filter to some of the results to remove blank lines and now the macro will not work. The problem is that if I remove the filter so that the macro does work, I end up with blank lines again.

Protected Sheet - Macro To Unprotect, Refresh Sql Query & Re-protect Fails

Feb 21, 2007

I have a protected worksheet containing an SQL query. I have two cells on the worksheet unlocked so that users can enter fresh parameters to feed the query.
Because I have to use MS Query to interrogate our SQL server (current IT decree), the query won't support parameters directly when the query cannot be represented graphically - so I have to manually edit the sql command text and then refresh the query - or at least that was why I wrote the code below

The problem: My macro won't unprotect the sheet before it calls the therefore won't update the sheet to detail the DSN, command text and number of parameters (latter should be 0) - info just used to verify queryit won't run the query / return the data as the sheet is still protected Comment: I have had to remove sheet protection in order to allow the sql to execute and return data. If protection is removed, the query does execute and return data ( changes in the "parameter" cell contents do cause the query to be correctly modified)
I could comment out the debug info but the query still doesn't return data if the sheet is protected.

Activesheet And worksheets(ndx) where ndx has been defined As ActiveSheet.Name
I apologise If my post Is difficult To follow - especially the code.

Sub AgedStockParameters()
nmb = ActiveWorkbook.Name
ndx = ActiveSheet.Name
WkshtQryCon = Workbooks(nmb).Worksheets(ndx).QueryTables(1).Connection
ActiveCell.Value = WkshtQryCon
WkshtQryFld = Workbooks(nmb).Worksheets(ndx).QueryTables(1).CommandText
ActiveCell.Value = WkshtQryFld.......................

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Send Email Now Fails With Runtime Error 1004 - Mail System Failure

Aug 23, 2012

I've been using a macro successfully for the last couple of years, but this morning when I went to use it, it decided to fail. I have a workbook which contains various spreadsheets. The macro that has failed performs the following tasks:

1. It copies a list of email addresss from an external workbook to a sheet in the current workbook (still works)
2. It copies the referral sheet I want to send to a new file, and saves it with an appropriate filename to an appropriate folder (still works)
3. The macro then creates an email with a standard subject line, attaches the new worksheet and emails it to each of the addresses as above (broken)

The error message is from Microsoft Visual Basic. "Run-time error '1004': Mail system failure. Check your mail installation."

I'm guessing there is a setting somewhere in Excel that has changed as part of an update.

I've been through a number of the options in the developer menu to remove any obvious restrictions (& reopened excel afterwards), but so far it hasn't resolved the problem.

For what it's worth, here is the macro code.

With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.ScreenUpdating = False
End With
Run "PullInSheet1"
Dim oldbook As String

[Code] .......

In case you're wondering about the pullinsheet code, I'll add it below - but I probably grabbed it from this forum a couple of years ago (like some of the above) & just made some changes.

Sub PullInSheet1()
Dim AreaAddress As String
'''''' Sheet11.UsedRange.Clear
Dim ClRange As String

[Code] ........

There are a couple of things I've wanted to do to improve the macro, but I couldn't justify the need to spend time working it out (since writing spreadsheets isn't really my job). Since it's broken at the moment, I can...

1. I'd like to create a subject line that reflects the name of the person being referred. For some reason though, anything other than text in the cell reference caused an error for me. eg, I tried using concatenate to create my subject line, but it didn't work.

2. I'd like the copied sheet to contain all of the formatting of the original sheet. Presumably there is a paste option that will do this and I just picked the wrong one.

The mailsystem we use is Groupwise 8. I couldn't find any settings in that program that have been changed, or that I could change.

I should change the extension from xls to xlsx in the code since I'm using Excel 2010 (but changing it doesn't fix the problem).

Calendar Not Working On All Computers?

Dec 4, 2013

This is a shared worksheet. When I look at it I can manipulate the calendar, but for others it is just a non-interactive image.

I'm sure this has something to do with them not having this control in their computer, but is there a work around?

VBA HTML Not Running On All Computers?

Jul 23, 2014

So I have this code I'm working on for my deptarment that goes to a website inputs data , clicks run and downloads the csv file to the worksheet. It works just fine on my PC and on my profile on the computers the other department uses. We are both using same versions of windows, excel , and IE. When i have someone from the other department run the macro it opens the website but never enters the data into the fields despite the site being the exact same coding as when i'm logged in.


When this code is ran by a member of the other department it just opens the website inputs nothing and doesn't press the RUN button on the website.

What setting or anything. I verified that both PC's VBA references in are there and no "Locations are missing paths" .

Collect Data From Different Computers

Dec 30, 2006

I bought 32 laptops out of my own moeny (used) to get my 5th grade students into the 21st century. I have several programs working on these laptops which output data in text and xls files. I would like to either:

1. Poll the files on each workstation at the end of the day and bring the data into excel (I have worked in VBA). Computers are named Comp01 to Comp33.

2. Better: have the workstations save the files to my NAS device so they are on one hard drive.

I would like to keep it simple (I'm a teacher not a good programmer.) Is the "Import External Data" the way to go for the text files? Can a macro go out and loop through the 32 laptops using that or some other add-in?

Save File To 2 Computers

Mar 6, 2007

I have a timesheet I created in Excel. I want to hit a button and have it save on the current computer. I also want it to copy the file to another computer on our network. I would like it to overwrite the exsisting file on this other computer automatically without a message saying "Do you want to overwrite exsisting file". The other computers dir is \OfficeTimesheet

What code can I write to make this happen?

Copy Protection :: On Different Computers

Jan 28, 2008


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
****'** MsgBox Environ("ComputerName")
****If Environ("ComputerName") UCase("Authorized PC Name") Then
********MsgBox "Sorry No Go!" & vbCrLf & "Wrong computer!"
********'** Do your thing here
********MsgBox "Proceed"
****End If
End Sub

Reading the thread in the link above, It seems as if one could limit access to a workbook. I tried this code on a dummy workbook, I have a few question...

1. Why am I getting "Sorry, No Go. Wrong Computer" when I just put the code in the dummy worksheet for the first time?

2. Can this code be modified to capture my clients computer information to restrict the workbook useage only on one computer and prevent unauthorized distribution to other computers?

3. Can this code run automatically everytime the workbook is open?

Size UserForm For Different Computers

May 14, 2008

I've created a userform that will be used by multiple users. I'm not finished coding it yet but when I tried to work on it on my computer at home it did not look the same as it did at work. I tried it on several other computers and experienced the same problem.

It appears that the inserted company logo is zoomed in and the some of the label text has wrapped and is not visible.

I've attached a screen shot of the form on my work computer and the way it looks on other computers.

Allow Use Of Workbook On Specific Computers Only

Jun 6, 2008

I have a workbook with sensitive company information. I need a way to validate the computer the workbook is being opened on and then close the workbook if it is not a confirmed workstation.

The file is already password protected on opening, each worksheet and the workbook is protected, and the VBA code is protected. We just need to take it one step further.

Is there a way to check a registry entry or the computers MAC address on workbook_open?

I have found code to close the workbook without saving which I would use after a message box stating "You do not have permission to access this file."

If someone has their macro security level set to high or very high, that prevents my code from running. How can I make this work on any computer no matter what their macro settings are?

Excel 2010 :: Print Area Changes On Same File Between 2 Different Computers?

Jun 6, 2013

I have a technician who sits a desk over, has the same brand of computer running the same Windows 7 and the same Excel 2010, but when he opens a particular file the page layout or print area seems to change so that the sheet is partially cut off. All his options appear the same. I can open this file on other computers and it seems to be fine...

I notice that the Margins under Custom Margins are different and this would explain the problem but not why it occurs. It's a file I created and saved and he opened. Why would the margins change? Is this one of the Microsoft cross platform / program deals where if he changes the print set-up or page layout in WORD for example, it changes them in EXCEL?

Protect Excel Files To Open Only On Designated Computers?

Jul 16, 2010

Is it possible to protect an excel file such that it will open up only on designated computers (identified by the computer name or some unique hardware identification like MAC address etc)?I was wondering if the VB editor can be used to do the same.

Let me put my requirement in detail:

I have an excel file "123" created in one computer (named=A). On this computer this file can be opened by anyone.I write a code such a way that, this particular file when copied on to other computers say (B,C & D) would open up as usual. But on computer E or any other computer, it should not open.

I cannot use password protect feature on the file as "n" number of users will be accessing this file on those designated computers. I was finding few of the clients copying the files on their personal drives or email without proper consent.If its possible, I would like to employ the same on few of my word (.doc) files as well.
