Macro To Open Dialog Insert Object

Jul 19, 2013

I am trying to add a simple function to button in Excel.

First I need to select cell G24 as that where the inserted file should be placed on the worksheet. Then on the Add Object window to open but the tab 'Create from file selected.

Below is only part of the solution
Sub ShowInsertObj()
End Sub

Also is it possible to detect that file has been placed on the page ? In cell G24?

I am wanting users to attach a required zip file. I then need to check if they have done so.

Insert Picture (cannot View The Object Properties.)

Apr 19, 2009

The error I am getting (highlighted in red) is that it cannot view the object properties. So the picture is put in, but it's emplacement cannot be set and the picture cannot be renamed (which must occur for other macros to see it).
Pages are not protected. The only self automated macro is on workbook open, and it only resizes to view the area depending on the persons resolution.

Method Open Of Object Workbooks Failed

Feb 9, 2010

I need some help with this error. I have some VBA code in Outlook that runs whenever a task reminder goes off. The code is supposed to open a workbook, send email based on the info in the workbook, then close the workbook and quit excel.

The task reminders are set to go off every two hours. Sometimes this will work fine for days and then randomly (as far as I can tell) I get the error: "Method Open of Object Workbooks failed". If I press Debug and then Run without changing anything at all, it works fine.

I am using Outlook 2007 and Excel 2007. The workbook is a shared workbook on a network drive.

I can post code if needed, but will have to go to that computer.

Why do I occasionally get this error when the workbook definitely exists and has the same name and path?

What does entering debug mode do that then allows the macro to run without error?

Insert Shape Object Into Outlook 2010 HTML Mail

May 21, 2013

I have Excel and Outlook 2010 64-bit. I'm trying to develop HTML e-mails that are a mix of text drawn from cells on one sheet and picture objects on another. I have no problem with the HTML body text, but I cannot figure out how to reference and place the Shape objects. I am using:

.HTMLBody = "" & Range("F1").Offset(i) & Range("G1").Offset(i) & ""
and I want to embed, between the text brought in with cells F and G, a picture object like

Sheets("Images").Shapes("Picture 1")

I've found code that brings in a picture from a file but, for portability's sake, I really want to have the pictures maintained on the Images sheet and not in a separate file. However, I cannot figure out how to connect the HTML code with the spreadsheet object.
