A macro, which would allow me to click on a particular cell, which will have an ID number (1 through 34), each ID# is attributed to a particular employee. These ID# are located in my spreadsheet in columns B & G, and the ID #'s begin initially in B6 & G6 and continue downward to B34 & G34. These ID #'s are used in a vlookup type formula which covers 35 pages of this workbook. What I'd like to do is be able to click on any cell between B6& B34 (and/or the same in G6&G34), which has a particular ID # in it and have the photo of that particular employee designated with that ID# pop up in a window generated by the macro. I hope this makes sense! Any help would be greatly appreciated. My 1st sheet in my workbook is my "lookup" tab, which contains my ID# list and numbering sequence affiliated to each employee. So I'm not sure if I'd need to put the photograph of the employee in a column next to the employees name or have a folder designated with all my pictures in a certain directory, etc.
Just want to know if is possible control a popoup window through a VBScript Macro in excel? I don't know if I could click a button from a PopUp when it appears? I mean I cant go forward because a popup message appears and I dont know how take the control of it.

This is the first time i am using this forum. I am having a doubt in the macro. I am using MS-Office 2007 version. In Excel 2007 when you go to "developer" tab, the first group is "code" under that when you click on "Macro". You will be able to see a button called "create". Can you tell for what purpose it is used? when it will be "active" because it is always in disabled state.
I need code that will let me activate and inactivate a custom menu bar macro when the user leaves/reeturns to the workbook the menu is for. Example: in workbook A (with a cutsom menu bar), the user inputs data, but needs to check or edit workbook B (normal menu bars). I want the menus to go back to normal when the user activates Window WorkbookB. When finished there, and selecting Workbook A, I want the custom menu macro to run again. I already have create/delete code. Would the solution be some type of If Then in the Sheet Code?
I recorded one that does a very simple task, converts formulas to values. I saved it in my personal workbook, all is well. I noticed that excel names them Module1, Module2 etc. I thought it would be better to name them, so in the properties window next to "name" i changed Module1 to ConvertFormulas.
However, when i go to a worksheet, the keyboard shortcut no longer works. Reverting back to the old name Module1 solves this. Clicking Tools -> Macro -> Macros, selecting ConvertFormulas and then Options and modifying the shortcut.
I'm very new to Excel and definately to macros/vba. I've already received a tremendous amount of help with this file but I'm am really struggling here and getting very frustrated! I've got a pretty good handle on the excel part but the macros/vba is another story. Here is what i'm attempting to do: I've created a form "frmMacroButtons" which has 8 buttons. When the workbook is opened I want this form/window to launch. I want the user to be able to select any of the buttons but also be able to just click into the worksheet manually if wanted but have the window stay open to go back to use the buttons. Each of the buttons I've typed a description of what I want each of the buttons to do in the code view.
I have created an attendance tracker for a team of people at work. It simply involves a grid of the days of the month and on each 'day' (or cell) I have set up the Validation command to prompt the the user to select whether they were at work, on holiday, off sick etc. etc from a drop down box. If they do not change the cell, its defaulted value is that they are in work.
When a user selects the days that they are planning a holiday in the future, they are meant to write a comment on the cells they have changed, to advise when they had 'requested' the holiday.
What I would like is (a macro?) which makes the comment box automatically 'pop up' when they change a cell from its default value prompting them to fill in the details rather than relying on them to 'add comments' manually.
In addition, what would be the best way to 'restrict' them from booking holiday within the next 7 days - we have a problem with people booking holiday on 'lastminute.com' for 2 days time, booking off the holiday on the spreadsheet and saying that they had it planned for weeks!
In Excel 2010, is there any way to paste a picture into a small picture/diagram box, and upon double clicking the picture it would explode to a larger size? And I guess double clicking it again would make it return to its original (smaller) size. I would be pasting several pictures into several different picture/diagram boxes and would need this to be a relative reference so that upon selection it explodes the appropriate picture?
I want to have a sample file in excel which store picture of student in comment, I did this, but when I want to insert picture the file dialog appears, and if I click cancel, then there is an error, why? If some one optimise the code it would be very nice
I copied this from another post and am having trouble getting it to work for me. I want to be able to run this macro, find a picture on my computer which could be located anywhere and then have it paste in specific cells.
Whenever I run this it lets me find the picture I want and when I select it I get error message that says "compile error" Syntax Error". It then does not put the picture on the sheet.
I tried to zip and attach the work sheet multiple times but keep getting error message and won't let me attach......"forum excel database has encountered a problem" ....
I'm watching an educational D V D on my computer, and take notes in excel. I repeatedly use the print screen command, then go to excel and paste in the picture, though it is too large. I resize it to 50% and I'm done. What kind of code do I need to use to paste and shrink the picture to 50%? Also, how do I attach a shortcut key to this action (for example Ctrl+M)
My macro generates some graph from some datas. Datas are in some range and when I filtering it shows only filtered values. I use Fixed axis (min and max) because if I use Auto it fit data to the window.
My problem is: I would like to use Auto axis because my layout would be better but bacground picture remains the same and it's useless. Background picture should change as I change filters.
untitled.JPG here is picture: current situation is 1.
With Auto axis I get 2. (blue B and green D are filtered results)
And I would like to have 3.
Is it possible that background picture variate as datas variates?
I'm working on a dashboard that shows some market developments. One of the problems is that I'm using linked pictures and a combo box to choose the appropriate graph, but sometimes the picture link returns a blank. Apparently this is a bug that can be fixed by running a macro that refreshes the picture link. Unfortunately I'm a real beginner with this kind of stuff.
Basically, I am curious if I were to insert a value into say cell A1, is there any way B1 could display a picture I've saved. To be a bit more specific, A1's value would be 777, and B1's inserted picture would be 777.png saved on my PC. This would need to apply for the whole of the sheet for all the values in column A.
I have a sheet made into a form with some check boxes included. If I select all the relevant columns, create a new sheet, and paste into cell A1 - all of the information carries over just fine. You can still select cells and check the boxes in the new sheet.
However, when I record this action as a macro, using the macro produces a picture of the selected columns instead of actually copy/pasting the information. I can't click on the cells or check boxes. I can only move the picture around within the new sheet.
I just upgraded to Excel 2007 and my macro from Excel 2003 for inserting a picture doesn't work correctly in 2007. I have a command button that states insert picture and when you click it, it will let you insert a picture into the cell and hide the command button. In 2007 it will let you insert the picture, but it isn't centered and expands into other cells and the command button is still visible. The picture appears to be the correct size it just doesn't center itself in the cell and the command button is still visible. Below is the
