Need To Embed A Sound File & Create A Macro To Play It..
Jan 20, 2010
embed a audio file (.wav or .mp3) into a Excel Sheet and be able to have it play from a macro? I need the Clip to stay in the file not refer to a location on the pc and have it play from the sheet not open media player. Can this be done?
I'm trying to automate/keep records of my day by setting up a spreadsheet which : 1) Plays a wav music file at a schedule time as a reminder and 2) at the same time calls up a form where I can enter the results of the activity then 3) saves the results to a sheet where consecutive daily records can be recorded and graphed.
At 5am each day I want a "Motivation.wav" music file to open and play and a form appear where I enter in the number of sit ups, push-ups I get done, which I enter in the form and it gets saved to a sheet where I can graph my progress based on the results recorded.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range) If UCase(ActiveSheet.Range("S41").Value) > 99 Then FName = "C:windowsmediading.wav" Call PlaySound(FName, 0&, SND_ASYNC Or SND_FILENAME) End If End Sub
but I cant get it to work!
All I want is for it to play a sound when My Value in S41 goes over the Value 99 the value is part of a simple formula of sums.
Just want to know if there is a way to play a sound based on the value of a cell. In this case, if the cell says "S" then the sound is a low note and if the cell says "L" then the sound is a high note. If the cell is "" then there is no sound.
I would like to create a macro that plays a sound every 45 seconds or so. In other words, I would like to have a countdown timer that counts from 45 seconds down to 0 seconds and at the end it plays a sound file(could be mp3, wav, etc) to signal the end. After that it should automatically reset itself back to the start of 45s and count down again. This would be repeated about ten to eleven times. What is the easiest way of doing this? It's too confusing. Lets say the audio file was located in: C:my soundseep.wav
I have 2 cells that take imported info. from a DDE server. Lets say one cell currently has a number of 9.00. Lets say the 2nd cell has a number of 1.00. Lets say the 1st cell over time goes from 9.00 to 8.50 to 7.33 to 6.67 and so on....it continues to go down. At the same time, lets say the 2nd cell is gaining and going from 1.00 to 1.33 to 2.00 to 2.67 to 3.33, and so on...and it continues to go up. I want to have a certain sound play once the two cell numbers "cross" each other. I only want this sound to play one time and not every "tick" as they cross and go up/down. Can someone show me how to program this?
Is there any way of playing a sound (or even better, speech) whenever a specific cell equals a certain value or contains a certain string (such as "Alarm")? This has to happen automatically as the cell updates and require no interaction.
I have a wav sound I would like the user to hear when the cell is selected Each cell has a word in it:
a1 = relator a2 = woo a3 = strategic
each word has a related recording that is in the form of a wav sound file. (does the wav filke have to be stored in a certain place...?) perused lots of Qs & As but didn't find one this simple: the user clicks the cell and the sound plays.
This is a complete mystery to me. I have some code (reproduced below) that plays a .wav file when any of the values in a1:a9 changes from 0 to greater than 0. This code works when I manually change one of the values to a trigger number in any of the cells.
The problem is that the values in a1:a9 are really pointers to other cells. For example, a1 is "=sum(D9:D20)"
So, when I d9:d20 chnages values such that a1 changes from 0 to 5, the sound doesn't play. To put it simply, if I type "5" in a1 the sound plays. If a1 = D1 and I type "5" in D1 the value in A1 changes to 5 but the sound doesn't play.
How do I modify this code such that any change in the value of A1:A9, no matter the source of that data change, triggers the playing of the sound? ......
What I want to achieve is for say if the value in cell A1 equals the value in cell B1, then cell A1 to flash a background colour (eg. red), and also play a sound. I assume this can only be achieved using VBA, of which I am not conversant with. I am searching the forum for answers, but not yet found one that addresses my problem exactly (being a complete VBA newbie). In the meantime if some could assist please or point me to a thread that addresses this query.
I have a need to embed a wav file into a workbook. This is fairly simple to do through the insert>>object>>create from file, but I see no way to do this through VBA. I want the entire process to be simple so the user just has to click a button, pick their file from explorer, then play the sound file through the little speaker icon that is generally created.
In the end the one sheet (filename.xls) is the only thing sent through email and it must contain the wav embedded inside without using the insert>>object>>create from file route.
I have an Excel spreadsheet with Harvey's Balls font and need to get the file distributed amongst coworkers. Is there a way to embed the font into the spreadsheet so they don't have to install the font?
I have a file with two sheets - Main and Reference. The file has a macro that when used from Main sheet displays some data (images to be specific) from the Reference sheet. The main sheet is of a specific format and has some buttons to call the macro.
I want to have the capability to create any number of main sheets of the same format. I know this can be done by saving the Main sheet as a template and right clicking on a sheet and clicking 'Insert..'. But that would require the template to be stored in the excel start file on the local computer.
I want to know if there is any way the worksheet template can be stored within an excel file, so that if the file is sent to people on a different computer, the user can easily add more worksheets using the template?

I am making one project in excel where I want to add time zone converter Or time zone search in engine in excel for that purpose I have create one portable software for time conversion but I am unable to add or insert or embed it in excel as it is an exe file.
I have attached one winzip file that is carrying Age Calculator in it so that you can have a brief understanding about how does the portable software looks like, age calculator is a portable software as it does not need installation & it works as we run it. I am also attaching excel demo file with it by the name ""time zone", its rough simulacrum of my original project file.
I have built a darts scoreboard on Excel 2007, to track scores but also record statistics such as 3 dart average and -checkout success. As I don't know how to write macro's I've created it using formulae only - it's not fancy but does the job!
I have a number of .WAV files that call out the main scores - 60, 100, 140 and 180 and I'd like the scoreboard to play the relevant file when someone scores that amount. I've trawled through lots of forums but have been able to find one that does exactly what I need it to, and I don't know how to adjust the ones I've found.
This is how the scoreboard works:
There are 25 different sheets, one for each leg of the match that could be played. The sheets are named Leg1, Leg2, Leg3 etc.On each sheet, Player 1's scores are entered in cells J15 to J47, and Player 2's scores are entered into cells O15 to O47Once Player 1 or Player 2 wins the leg, I move on to the next sheet to play the next leg. All the scores entered remain in each sheet until the match has ended
This is what I need the macro to do:
When a score of anything other than 60, 100, 140 or 180 is entered, do nothingWhen a score of 60, 100, 140 or 180 is entered, play the relevant .WAV fileIf, for example, Player 1 scores 60 the '60' .WAV file plays. 60 will be left in J15, then Player 2 may score 100, which will be entered into O15 and should trigger the '100' .WAV file.Note that either Player 1 or Player 2 can start the leg, so the order scores are entered between column J and column O can differ.
I have a CSV file contain many fields and all fields have value (positive & negative values). I have 3 questions here:
1) This file is created on Friday. So the date in Field1 is Friday's date. I want to change the date to Saturday date. How can i change it using macro? 2) I want to set the value for fields 24 until 26 to 0. I want the script to force the field value to be 0. How can i do that by using macro?..and fyi, my CSV file have header in the first row. Below i illustrate my original csv file and the expected output. 3) How can i automate the macro to run every Friday afternoon?
Original csv Field1, Field2,....,Field24, Field25, Field26, Field27 "20120803","ABC",...,9.032,24.52,-6.325,21.12 "20120803","ABC",...,5.242,-1.53,7.005,21.12
How can I code to create a copy of a worksheet in an excel file I am using a macro on, after the macro is done processing? In other words, when the macro completes processing, create a copy of the worksheet labelled "Output", and save it in a directory that the user chooses? Also, would it be possible to create a .pdf file?
I'm looking to create a new file from data in my table. I don't want to even imagine having to do this manually again...I'm optimistic there is a solution. All the data needed to create the file is in the table, but i need it stacked and organized in a weird way. It's almost to hard to explain...so I color coded an attachement that basically says it all. It's pretty much the same thing repeated over and over except the last 2 lines. It's just a really messed up organization. In the real version I need the new file in a new workbook. I'm extremely grateful to anyone who can automate this thing
First need to create a "Text" Folder in your desktop, then try running the macro. It will create a number of text files inside the "Text" folder.. And they contain the used cells from each row. It's supposed to create 982 text files, with the text name referred to the first column. Problem is, if you try running it, it will only create around 53 text file
I want to create a macro that will create a new folder called "Fungicide Quotes" under my documents and will save the workbook using the cell reference d4:f4 for the file name, which are merged cells. I have tried the following but can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
Dim strFilename, strDirname, strPathname, strDefpath As String On Error Resume Next strDirname = "Fungicide Quotes"
strFilename = Range("d4:f4").Value strDefpath = "C:My Documents" If IsEmpty(Filename) Then Exit Sub
