Macro That Creates Many Macros

Jan 17, 2009

I am having a problem trying to create a macro that will loop in order to create several macros. I have a long macro (call it mainmacro) that needs to be able to create several simple macros to be used by the user of the workbook. Each macro has a variable that needs to be taken from mainmacro. Each macro is different based on the value of the 'i' loop variable that the macro is created in. i'm sure im making this sound more complicated than it really is...basically:

Sub mainmacro()

'lots of code not relavent to this issue here

For i = 1 to 10

'create 10 macros that, when run, would highlight A1, A2, etc.
Range("A" & i).Select

Next i
End Sub

This is just an example. But, basically, i just want to be able to automatically create a bunch of macros with a variable from mainmacro.!

Creating A Macro, That Creates A New Button, Which Itself Runs A Macro..

Dec 15, 2009

I have a long complicated macro that processes a ton of data and gives the output in a new sheet. I then want to create new buttons (or some sort of user clickable triggers) on this new sheet that runs another macro.

I have got the actual adding of buttons in the sheet working, but I can't find a way to automatically assign macros to newly generated buttons during runtime. Is this even possible (or are there any clever tricks I could use to get around this?)

Use A Macro That Creates Sheets And Places Formula In Cells

Jun 20, 2006

I am trying to use a macro that creates sheets and places formulae in cells but the resulting formulae are not what I coded. Here is similar

Function CreateSheet(i As Integer)
Dim CellAddress As String
Set Adjustment = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(6, 3 + 4 * i)
Celladdress = Adjustment.Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1)
With Selection
.Offset(22, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!B14*Rating!" & CellAddress
.Offset(23, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!C14*K4*Rating!" & CellAddress
.Offset(24, 9).Formula = "=Sheet2!D14*K5*Rating!" & CellAddress

Macro: Analyzes Data In 365 Sheets ( Named "1" Through "365") And Creates A Table/report With The Results

Mar 13, 2007

I have a procedure that processes data in a spreadsheet. It analyzes data in 365 sheets ( named "1" through "365") and creates a table/report with the results. When I run this on a scaled down version of my workbook (5 instead of 365 worksheets), the result is almost instantaneous. When this is on my normal workbook, the initial processing is about 1 second per day on Day 1, and the last day it speeds up to almost be instantaneous. It is not a linear relationship between the processing time (still working to get more exact timing information). Also, even if I limit my processing to 5 or 10 sheets, Days 1-10 are always slow and days 350-365 are always fast. The code being run is in the structure as shown below:

numSheets = 365
For counter = 1 To numSheets
x = CalculateSomething(counter)

Private Function calculateSomething(counter As Integer) As Integer

Dim strCounter As String
strCounter = counter

With worksheets(strCounter)
For i = 0 To someNumber
For j = 0 To someDifferentNumber
'Data analyzed on worksheet
End With
End Function

The functions obviously aren't copied and pasted/functional, but the relevant efficiency stuff should be there.

I have written two VBA programs around the same time. Both run on open and pull external data and create graphs. My problem is that I want the end user to be able to run the report multiple times by choosing the name of the macro from the Excel macro menu (i.e. Tools>Macro>Macros) but only one of the workbook macros shows up on the menu. why the other macro is not visible on this menu???

Adding New Sub Call Creates

I added a new sub to and now I'm getting a compile error. This was working fine until I added "Cust_Rev1". I get an compile error saying "expected variable or procedure, not module". Both are located in personal.xlsb. If I rem Cust_Rev1 out, I don't get a hiccup. (FWIW, I've been running "Cust_Rev1" on its own to debug it.)

Udf That Creates Cell Comments

Feb 15, 2007

I have a list on my first worksheet that is sequentially numbered in the first column, and has work activities in the next column. On my second worksheet, I have those sequential activity numbers as the column headers on a new list. Problem is I don't have any room to label the new list by the activity's actual description(second column, first sheet). If I did, I would just use a simple VLOOKUP.

So, what I would like to do is utilize the VLOOKUP to pass the activity description string to a UDF that will create a comment in those column headers. Then when the user mouses over the activity numbers, the respective activity descripiton will pop-up as a comment thus solving my space problem!

Macro To Run All Other Macros?

Feb 21, 2013

I have several commonly used macros saved in my personal.xlsm file so I can tap into the power of these macros on all spreadsheets without having to re-create the macros in every worksheet I do.

The problem I have is that it's slow to recall these macros by clicking on the Developer-->Macros button. I'd much rather assign a hotkey to each...but the Hotkeys only work with ctrl+letter and I find that I accidentally assign my macros to hotkeys that are already hotkeys (example: ctrl+z for undo).

How can I create a macro that gives me a pop-up box with buttons I can push to activate the macro I need and then the pop-up box goes away after selecting the macro (something like a message box pop-up)?

So I have a macro that sends an email of the active spread sheet. I want to add that macro to another macro. The tricky part is that i call other macros inside the macro. So is there a way i can add the send email macro and have it apply to all the macros i call. Here my code:

' Make sure you open "gateway.csv" "phone.csv" "ctiroutepoint.csv" and "Billing Contact.xls"
' Call Gateway Workbook and clean it up

Call Clean_Up_Gateway

' Call Phone Workbook and clean it up

[Code] .........

Here's my send email Macro


Sub Send_Email()
' Send_Email Macro
Dim oApp, oMail As Object
Dim WB As Workbook
Dim ArchiveFolder As String, FileName As String

[Code] ........

So I want to add that send email macro into my Run all billing macro and it apply to all the macros I call.

Pivot Table, Calculated Item.... No Data, Still Creates A Row

Oct 12, 2007

I have a Pivot table.

Rows: City, Restaurant, Cashflow
Column: Date (Month/Year)
DataField: $Amount

"City" might be 7 cities
"Restaurant" may be 32 restaurants, some in some cities; but not other
"CashFlow" can be either "Revenue" or "Expense"

The layout of the Pivot table is nice, only shows the Rows where a State, Restaurant, and CashFlow entry exists for at least one Date on that row. And there are no extraneous rows for combinations that don't exist.

Now.... the trouble...

I added a Calculated Item, "Profit" which = "Revenue" - "Expenses".
Now, every possible combination of State and Restaurant appears in the pivot table displayed. Only the "Profit" (calculated item) is shown for the previously hidden rows; and of course it's "$0.00" since there are no "Revenue" or "Expense" entries.

How can I get the Pivot table to not display the results of a Calculated Item row, when there are no entries otherwise for that row combination?

Is there a way to condition the Calculated Item to not calculate if there are no data entries in the addends for a particular combination?

Pivot Table Creates Extra Data In Fields

Jun 17, 2009

I'm trying to create a pivot table, but there is a problem. Although my data only has 2 years (1996 and 1997), it creates a new year it calls "blank," and a lot of the data that is supposed to be under 1996 and 1997 appears under this "blank" year. How do I fix this? See the attachments for the data and pivot table.

Dynamic Subroutine Generation Creates Compile Error

Oct 4, 2007

I'm am running Excel 2003 SP2 on Windows XP SP2.

I have a macro which modifies cells in a spreadsheet. But for brevity sake, I have an empty spreadsheet which has an Auto_open macro and two subroutines in it. The subroutines initially consist of just the Sub and End Sub statements.

The Auto_open procedure reads in lines from two text files (generated by another application), and inserts the lines into each of the empty subroutines. Auto_open then runs the two subroutines.

I have been able to get this dynamic creation of the subroutines to work for one subroutine, but not for the second. I receive the compile error: "Only comments may appear after End Sub, End Function, or End Property". I don't see anything wrong with the inserted code.

The modified subroutines appear fine, and if I save the macros with the modified code, close excel, rename the text files so they are no longer read in, and re-open the spreadsheet, the auto_open procedure and the two subroutines run fine. This tells me the code itself is okay, and yet it won't work during the initial run.

Below is the macro code in its original state:

Sub Auto_open()
Dim fso, f
Dim VBCodeMod As Object
Dim LineNum As Long
Dim StrFileName As String

ShowVisualBasicEditor = True

Set VBCodeMod = ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents("Module1").CodeModule

End Sub
The contents of the read in file, %TEMP%subA.txt, is just one line:
MsgBox("inside SubA")

The contents of the read in file, %TEMP%subB.txt, is just one line:
MsgBox("inside SubB")

When I open the spreadsheet the first time, it gives me the first message box from Sub A, but then generates the error and highlights the Sub SubB() line.

To duplicate the problem:
1. Insert the macro into a spreadsheet. Save and exit it.

2. Create the files %TEMP%subA.txt and %TEMP%subB.txt containing the single MsgBox lines.

3. Open up the spreadsheet. SubA will run and a message box will appear. Then the compilation error will occur.

4. Save and exit the spreadsheet.

SubA will now contain:

Sub SubA()
MsgBox("inside SubA")

End Sub

SubB will now contain:
Sub SubB()
MsgBox("inside SubA")

End Sub

5. Rename the two text files, so that the next time you open the spreadsheet it won't try to insert the lines from the files into the subroutines.

6. Re-open the spreadsheet. Two message boxes will now appear, one from SubA and one from SubB.

Macro To Run Macros Without Referencing The Filename

Feb 2, 2012

I have several macros that import several files.

I'd like to create one macro that runs all the other macros. The sample below works by running Import_01 and Import_02

Application.Run "'FY13 Budget Worksheet - 400 Student Affairs - BACKUP.xlsm'!Import_01"
Application.Run "'FY13 Budget Worksheet - 400 Student Affairs - BACKUP.xlsm'!Import_02"

The problem is this filename may change. I'd like to remove the reference to 'FY13 Budget Worksheet - 400 Student Affairs - BACKUP.xlsm' so that the above code will work should the user change the filename.
