One Macro Stops Another From Working

Dec 2, 2011

I have this macro which sits in the workbook module:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Static OldRng As Range

On Error Resume Next
If Application.CutCopyMode = xlCopy Or Application.CutCopyMode = xlCut Then

[Code] .......

It's used to highlight the selected/active row.

But, as soon as I run another macro, it simply stops working entirely and I'm left with a row permanently highlighted until you manually remove the conditional formatting. All formats and cell colours controlled in the other macro stop working as well. This is the other (edited for publishing) macro, which is used to send an email, and is found in a module:

Sub Send_Mail()
'this sends an email that sends a text message

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim MyButton As String
Dim strTo As String

[Code] .......

I didn't write the first macro so I'm not sure where the problem is? I'm guessing there is something in the code that is stopping it from working (i.e. running conditional formats) as soon as another macro is run? Is that was is happening?

Saving As Stops Macro Working

Feb 6, 2008

i have a worksheet named for example 'allocation 1' this is a master document and is opened and modified and 'saved as' under a customer name. This then stops a few important macros working properly because they refer to the original title and not the new saved title. Is there any code that will let the macro recognise any new title it is saved under?

Excel Macro Stops Working In Copied Spreadsheet Within Same Workbook

Jan 4, 2012

I have a simple list of data (Name, Room, etc.) in a spreadsheet. Each day I click on the spreadsheet tab and create a "copy" and (move to end). This creates a spreadsheet for the next day's data.

My problem is that the macro I use to sort this data never works in the newly created spreadsheet within the same workbook. As usual, I'm sure it is something relatively simple that I am overlooking.

Code Stops Working After X Rows

Nov 23, 2008

I'm using Excel 2007 and my s/s is 360000 rows deep.
To cut+paste formulas+formats from one column to another I'm using the following
Sub move_formula_and_formats_from_I_to_L()

Dim cell As Range

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each cell In Range("I1", Cells(Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp))
With cell
If .HasFormula And Not .Offset(1).HasFormula Then
.Cut Destination:=.Offset(1, 3)
End If
End With
Next cell

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub
The code stops working after 159000 rows and highlights (in yellow) the line:
.Cut Destination:=.Offset(1, 3)

Active X Control Stops Working

May 16, 2006

I have joined out of desperation relating to a problem with an Active X control inserted into a userform. This control accesses and returns data from an instrument on the RS232 PC comms port. All works well until I try to save, copy or print the workbook using usual VBA code, then mysteriously the code just stops, and Excel needs to be restarted again. It seems to just get lost!

Formula Stops Working After Performing Certain Tasks

Nov 21, 2006

I was given the following formula by Domenic some time ago that I use along with VBA code supplied by Fin Fan Foom to open do a lookup on a closed workbook:

=If(ISNUMBER(MATCH(MIN(If( Date=D2,If(ABS(Time-E2)<"0:30:30"+0,ABS(Time-E2)))),If(Date=D2,ABS(Time-E2)),0)),INDEX(Contact,MATCH(MIN(If(Date=D2,If(ABS(Time-E2)<"0:30:30"+0,ABS(Time-E2)))),If(Date=D2,ABS(Time-E2)),0)),"")
Everything works fine, until I attempt to…
- cut & paste a block of cells, or
- do a SaveAs, or
- change a worksheet name

The formula will no longer function after performing any of these tasks (the cells go blank), and I have to close the workbook without saving to preserve the original workbook functionality. All other tasks, including even importing of different files into the workbook have NO negative effect.

The formula uses an “INDIRECT” named range. Sheet name changes are reflected in the named ranges, but any change of names somehow causes a malfunction (no sheet names are referenced in the VBA).

I thought that the large lookup workbook (40,000 rows) may be a problem, but even after deleting most of the data and retaining only a few rows, the problem still remained.

After the formula cuts out (after performing the above tasks), if I open up the lookup file, then the lookup will work again, but if I close the lookup file, it will stop working.

I doubt the problem is in the VBA code since IT WORKS, and besides, I have other simple VLookups formulas that also uses the same process (and VBA code) and they continue to work just fine when that one formula gives out. The only thing I can think of is that the complexity of that one formula may be an issue.

Anyway, I the original thread is long, so I’m starting a new one here. The original thread is here (Domenic’s formula, pg 7; FFF’s code, pg 8):
Dedicated Cell To Choose Lookup Table

Conditional Formatting Stops Working After Adding Column

May 21, 2013

I have a conditional formula that highlights dates red when it meets a certain criteria. The file named MS Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) works as it should with no issues. The other file MS NOT Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) has stopped working as it should. What I did? I inserted a new column to the left. Where the MS Working file has only 1 column to the far left, the MS NOT Working file now has 2 columns to the far left.

It seems as if the formula adjusted itself when I inserted the new column; however, its not working.

MS Working
Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>B3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),B3<>"",OR(C3="",C3=0),B3<>0)

MS NOT Working
Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>C3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),C3<>"",OR(D3="",D3=0),C3<>0)

Excel 2013 :: VLookup Stops Working After Certain Number?

Jan 28, 2014

Excel 2013

Our company has a shipping report spreadsheet that has the job number in column A and the ship date in column F. I want to track other things on a separate spreadsheet. So far, we are only down to row 1440 so in order to account for future jobs, my code on the other spreadsheet is:

=VLOOKUP(A2, '[Shipping Report.xlsx]Monthly shipping schedule'!$A$1:$F$5000, 6, FALSE)

Also, the jobs are arranged by ship date, not by number order.

This has worked perfectly for months but for some reason, it will no longer recognize job numbers greater than 1331. The format is the same between the working and non-working cell. Is there a max limit for vlookups that I am not aware of? If this was a sudden failure, I could nail it down but there has to be an underlying reason I'm not seeing.

Here is a sample of my spreadsheet:
Ship Date
1325 12/27/13
1326 3/10/14
1327 1/4/14
1328 1/31/14
1329 3/3/14
1330 1/22/14
1331 1/15/14
1332 #N/A
1333 #N/A
1334 #N/A
1335 #N/A
1336 #N/A
1337 #N/A
1338 #N/A
1339 #N/A
1340 #N/A

Beforedoubleclick Create Sheet Stops Working Intermittently

Apr 27, 2007

I am using a BeforeDoubleClick event to look for a worksheet name and if it exists, go to the sheet. If the worksheet does not exist, it is creates a new sheet by copying a hidden sheet and naming it using a name in a cell reference. It works for the most part, but I am finding that it is having an intermittant issue. Sometimes, when I double-click, it double-clicks the target cell for editing, and then it renames the active sheet to the cell reference rather than copying the hidden sheet. It seems to happen when I reach 35 sheets created, but not always. Here is the

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim WSname As String
Dim WScheck As Worksheet
Dim WScheckname As String
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A5:L85")) Is Nothing Then
WSname = Range("L" & Target.Row)
On Error Resume Next
Set WScheck = Sheets(WSname)
If WScheck Is Nothing Then 'Doesn't exist so create it
Sheets("Master_SLP").Copy Before:=Sheets(Worksheets.Count)
ActiveSheet.Name = WSname.........................

Macro Stops Running The Macro Completely And Hangs In The Middle

Jul 3, 2007

Here in our department we made a pretty elaborate macro that takes a report and sorts them out to 17 different sheets in a one workbook. This Macro pulls a file from a specific location on our server and then opens the CSV sorts it out color codes all the important information and saves it back onto the server under you specific initials.

They are four PC's along with our Managers laptop that run this Macro daily.

About 3 weeks ago my Managers laptop stops running the Macro completely and hangs in the middle of the whole thing. Eventually crashing Excel.

We try to remove the modules and re-import them back into the personal macro workbork but this does not work. The Macro's did not change and still fully function on the other four desktops to this day.

I uninstall Office on my Managers laptop and reinstall. Import the Modules again and still hangs up in very same spot it did 3 weeks ago.

I've tried to lower the macro security to the lowest level also and I've still had no luck with this laptop. I don't understand. The Macro's function perfectly on other PC's but will not function on this laptop.

Macro Stops Before Completion?

Apr 13, 2014

i ran some tests and it was working good only doing folders with ~100 files. i tried running the macro on all the files (~70,000), but I ran into problems with the computer going into standby while I was away. I tried running a batch of 3000 files and it completed, but only got up to around ~400 out of ~3000 records. Maybe, it stops cause of code related inefficiencies?

Macro Execution Stops

Mar 12, 2009

I have a problem with the following code

Dim strProcLine As String
With ActiveWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents(ActiveChart.CodeName).CodeModule
' MsgBox ok

' adaugat procedura goala
.CreateEventProc "Calculate", "Chart"
'MsgBox ok
strProcLine = "Format_Chart"
' MsgBox ok
.InsertLines .ProcBodyLine("Chart_Calculate", 0) + 1, strProcLine
' MsgBox ok
End With
' MsgBox ok

This is part of a larger macro, wich makes 2 pivottables and for each PT a chart, and for each chart i create an even procedure (Chart_Activate) wich calls a procedure to format the chart. Tha macro is alocated to the click even on a button in the sheet where i get the information from.

If i run the macro(click the button) with Microsoft Visual Basic Editor opened all goes ok. But if i close Microsoft Visual Basic Editor and then run the macro it stops right before .CreateEventProc "Calculate", "Chart" of the first chart , and i can't understand why. No error mesages delivered, nothing.

Macro Stops At End Of Designated Range?

Apr 11, 2013

Problem with the attached Range Overrun.xlsm.

Form opens with set number of rows. End User then enters figure into C3 of how many row are to be added.

Option Explicit
Dim c As Range
Dim j As Integer


Macro works correctly by adding the number of rows listed in C3. It SHOULD then "name " various cells in the original and new rows.

BUT the Macro goes ON to name cells in rows BELOW the ones that are added.

So on the attached worksheet the original rows were 6 - 9. Rows 10 - 12 were added, but the macro names the cells from Rows 6 - 14.

Spaces In Sheet Name Stops Macro

Sep 28, 2011

I've had a macro running for ages, and just found it bugs out when there are spaces in a sheet name.

The user selects a destination cell as part of a form, which passes the variable to the following steps:

looperx = 0
looperx = looperx + 1
Loop Until Mid(celldestinationstring, looperx, 1) = "!"
Sheets(Left(celldestinationstring, looperx - 1)).Select

The purpose of which is to isolate the sheet name from the cell reference, which is typically like: 'Bob Sheet'!$B$9

This works fine where there are no spaces, but 'dies' with a runtime error when there are. With the apostrophes I assumed it would work around spaces in the string but I can't get it to work.

Find Replace Macro Stops After Row 37

Oct 2, 2008

Here is the find / replace vba I am using.

Sub Replace()
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(19), Replacement:="-", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(24), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(145), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(146), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart

End Sub

It makes the replacements up to line 37, then stops. If you then delete the first 37 rows and re-run the macro, it again performs replacements, but only on the next 37 rows.

I would like the macro to do the whole sheet...

Macro Stops Running Via Shortcut Key

Oct 20, 2006

Can't run vba macro. I have the following problem with a macro in excel. i wrote it, the macro runs very good from excel /tool/macro/macros/run, i also put a button on toolbar -it works too, i want to assign a keyboard shortcut from tool/macro/macros/options / shortcut and THE MACRO RUN INCOMPLETELY (stops running ).

Actually the macro opens all files in a specific folder, and delete their codes as follows:

Sub delete()
Const strNotFound As String = "There is NO Excel files..."
Dim ffTmp As FoundFiles
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim objVbc As Object
Dim objFile As Variant
Dim lngRet As Long
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Macro Stops After Workbooks.Open

May 16, 2007

In the last week the following code has ceased to work, and I do not know why:

If TradeShow = True Then
ReportFile = " ANALYSIS PRINT (CS+T) MASTER.xls"
End If
Workbooks.Open Filename:=ReportFile, ReadOnly:=True
Worksheets("TRANSFER DATA").Select
PriceFile = "PRICE COMPARISON.xls"

The Workbooks.Open command executes, and the screen shows the cells of the new spreadsheet. Nothing else happens, and the cursor is sensitive to operator control, showing that Macro control has been lost. I have inserted a test 'MsgBox' after the .Open command, and not even that is executed - so I am certain that the .Open is in some way wiping out the Macro.

Macro Stops After After Opening Another Workbook

Sep 3, 2007

I am a novice at excel macro programming. My Excel 2000 macro inexplicably stops after the line: Workbooks.Open Filename:=stAddrFullname, ReadOnly:=True

1) I know that the remainder of the code is not executed because a breakpoint on the following line is never reached.
2) I know that this line is executed because the stAddrFullname workbook is clearly opened and is displayed when the code stops prematurely.
3) No error message is displayed and I have no 'OnError' instructions in the code.
4) (This is the bit I really don't understand). If I put a Breakpoint in the macro anywhere in the function preceding the "Workbooks.Open" statement, the macro reaches the Breakpoint and then runs through to completion with no problem. When I remove the breakpoint, it reverts to stopping as soon as it has opened the Workbook.
5) The stAddrFullname workbook has no macros in it.

Macros Running Twice: SaveAs Macro Stops

I have been working on some Macros. I am compiling a macro that runs other macros. I have two noticeable problems.

1 - My SaveAs macro runs fine by itself. But when called or ran by another macro, (which calls more than one macro) the SaveAs macro it stops.

2- Many of my macros, when ran by another macro (which runs more than one macro) cycles through twice.

My specific question is about no. 2 and the following are the individual macros and the macro that runs them.

Macro Stops At 1st Line Of Userform Code

I have built a small userform with 3 fields. The macro ran OK first few times. Now, when user enters data in the form and clicks OK nothing happens. I found that repeated clicking on OK or Cancel button on form had no effect. I then observed that VBA editor was open and the yellow cursor was displayed on the first code line under cmdOK_click procedure. The code line was also highlighted in yellow. There are no errors to debug and no break points etc. When I clicked the Run (or Continue) icon from the VBA toolbar, the macro completed OK. Question: Why is the macro pausing on the first line and how can I make it run without pausing for no apparent reason.

Selecting Specific Worksheet Immediately Stops Macro

Nov 15, 2013

Whenever I try to use Sheets("Volumes").Select or .Activate on a specific worksheet, my macro code will immediately terminate with no error message. Iv'e used F8 to step through several modules and found that this happens every time it hits that line. The wierd thing is that i can select this sheet when screenupdating is off and I select it from a called subroutine. No other worksheets in this workbook are having this problem.

Additional info : using Sheet1.Select will select it with no issues but I don't want to go this route since it's a workaround and not a solution to somthing that should work.This problem occurs in several modulesEverything used to work fine and just one day it decided that i couldn't select the "Volumes" sheet in VBA anymore.I can click on the sheet no problem and it is not protected or hidden.

Excel 2010 :: OnTime Macro Stops Running When Window Minimized

Dec 12, 2013

I am using Excel2010.

My sheet displays values collected from a database via an AddIn. The values are updated by pressing CTRL+G (AddIn function).

I have an OnTime macro running SendKeys "^G" to update the values every minute. When the values exceed a certain limit, a sound is played from a custom Alarm function.

This all works as long as the excel window is active.

But if excel is minimized or another window is opened, the values stop updating until Excel is active again.

When the values dont update the sound is not played and that defeats the purpose of the sheet.

Macro Not Working On Other Spreadsheet

The attached workbook contains a macro ("Transfer_Data") that copies values from one cell to another when the "Update Progress" button (near cell A3) is selected. It works perfectly fine in this workbook but when I try the same code in another workbook, which looks and operates exactly like this one, nothing happens.

Is this due to a security setting or missing code line items?
