Macro For Minimizing Ribbon (Excel) And Formula Bar
Nov 23, 2012
I have prepared an excel workbook with macros for a bill. In that I have protected the workbook (selected window also) after reduced the menu bar to just ribbon (HOME, INSERT,PAGELAYOUT,.......), so that I would get enough space. I have send it to my friends as WinRaR file. But when they open in their computer the sheet is not getting enough space to display the entire page as normally no body used to minimize the ribbon and formula bar. This is making lot of inconvenience. I tried one macro but it not recording the actions on ribbon.
Using Excel 2003. I have a macro set up to copy all information from one Excel workbook to another. There is quite a bit of going back and forth between the 2 workbooks. I ended the macro by clicking in a particular cell in the origination workbook.
When I exceute the macro though it minimizes both workbooks. I have used the VB Editor to make sure that there is code such as.
I've been trying to research how to do this for a while now and still can't figure it out. My impression is that this is fairly straightforward in Excel 2010 since the menus and ribbons are easily customizable but not so in Excel 2007.
So far I can get macro shown as a button in the Quick Access Toolbar. But the issue is that I can't organize them or customize the icons.
I have an excel tool I am adapting to 2010 from 2003. It imports another tool which has been created elsewhere in my company and it is protected so I cannot alter it. This tool that I cannot change creates its own custom toolbar the "old fashioned" way so it dumps into the add-in tab on the ribbon. My tool opens this corporate tool and changes some items on the toolbar (enters values in a text box) and then imports data from it. However in run-time the custom toolbar never appears. Is there a way to refresh the ribbon in run-time after opening the file so I can then access the toolbar items?
I have the code that accompanies the attached spreadsheet model that locks the copy, paste, cut, double click and so on, with the right mouse button and shortcut keys, however, the toolbar excel these functions still remain active. How well I block access to the toolbar.
I have been attempting to enable the developer tab in Excel 2013, and have been unable to do so. When I check the box for the Developer tab, then click OK, the ribbon flickers, as if the tab is being added, but then the tab does not appear. When I go back to customize the ribbon, the check for the Developer tab is again not checked. I have also tried to move things around to different tabs and none of the changes stick.
I currently have an excel workbook (2010) in which I created a custom ribbon and assigned several different macros to the buttons.
Long story short, I will be saving several variations of this workbook every so often when I get new data.
The problem is that if I change the name of the file (Save as or Rename), the custom ribbon buttons no longer work. When I assigned the macros to the ribbon buttons, the macros were absolutely assigned.
Is it possible to assign relative macros to custom ribbons?
From research I have done, it appears that custom ribbons cannot be created using VBA. Is this still true?
Is it possible to edit and/or add extra symbols for the macro buttons? I mean to extended what the pallet offers Cutomsie Ribbon > Rename (As it is used to be before ribbon age with the ultra primitive built in symbol editor)
1st loop gets the moving average of the first 10 rows.
2nd loop uses that moving average to calculate the exponential moving average of 5,000 rows.
Now, after the first loop is run, I put that value in a Cell in Column (O). The 2nd loops works off of that cell to calculate the next exponential moving average and then that to calculate the next, and so on and on.
then I run two of the same loops as above, but with different period (for the moving average) and everything is printed in the next column, P.
THEN, another loop subtracts the column O from column P, and prints the value in the next column, Q.
Now, this takes up 3 columns, and I only need the third value, the one printed in column Q. Is there a way where my loops can store all of these values in some type of an array (instead of filling up a column on a worksheet) and then for me to simply just subtract the two arrays and have only that show up on my worksheet?
I have a few columns which a user needs to fill out manually, this is what i am trying to minimise and a few 'what ifs' spring to mind so here goes.
Firstly, a formula to do the following:
Column E1 is always a date 30 days from the data entry date, so:
If A1 has a value (Always name surname 'John Doe') AND B1 has an email address (John.Doe@somewhere.co.uk) show todays date plus 30 days otherwise stay empty.
My second question might be more complex:
If B1 is email address i wondered if A1 could snatch the name with a formula:
B1: firstname.lastname@example.org A1 = john doe
However the problem is lets say theres more than 1 john doe, the email address might be email@example.com but i still need A1 to read john doe as i have a macro set up to send an email to the value of A1:
I am trying to select something in VBA code in the Messages part of the ribbon and then Email Tags section of the outlook ribbon called Choose classification but not sure how to select this object. It is only available when you send a new email. I have been unable to paste a picture which would explain it better.
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).
I'm trying to convert the values entered by users into specific cells into a specific percentage. When I use this macro in Excel 2010, I can enter the value to be calculated directly into the cell and the macro runs automatically. When I open the file in Excel 2007, the macro does not calculate properly unless the value to be calculated is entered into the formula bar.
For example, in Excel 2007, if I enter '30' in cell E11, it should come out as '20%'. Instead it comes out as '0.2%' unless I enter '30' into the formula bar, which then calculates properly. It is far more efficient to be able to enter the value directly into the cell.
I have a series of macros I have built to automate some report manipulation at my office. One of the macros I built inserts formulas into specific columns. When I run this macro, all the formulas, save one, are populated perfectly into the column they need to be in. This particular formula is swiched over to R1C1 Reference Notation.
In the workbook I built the macro in, it inserts the formula in the correct notation. When I run the macro in a different workbook, this one formula is converted to RC Notation and then is displayed as text (since the workbook is not set to the R1C1 Reference style option).
Is there a bug in my VBA code? If so, how can I correct this?
I use Excel 2007. Macros are saved in my Personal.xlsb workbook. All other forumlas populated by the macro work correctly.
