Open Document File From A Button Control

Apr 24, 2007

I have created simple buttons on my spreadsheet to do most everything that is needed, except to display a "Help" file. The "Help" file can be a pdf document or any other document format that will work. I don't think I need any user forms or ActiveX controls. But, then again, I am a relative newbie to VB. Is there a simple way to have a button control on an Excel spreadsheet open and display a pdf file or other document? Or is there a better way to do what I'd like?

Open .ppt File From Command Button

Mar 17, 2009

I have created a large process map workbook in excel that links to various areas within the document using command buttons.

However, one of the things I need users to be able to see s in a PowerPoint presentation.

All I need to do is create a command button that links to, and opens this .ppt file.

The .xsl and .ppt files will be distributed in a folder to other members of the team so I need the link to not be specific to my computer. Is it possible to avoid using the full path and just use a short path such as .../desktop/tools/process.xls so that as long as they store the folder on their own desktop the link works?

MsgBox Open That States This File Is Confidential And You Click 'I Agree' Button, Or A Cancel "I Decline

May 19, 2007

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
MsgBox "Insert Text Here" , vbOKCancel
End Sub

What I would like to do is have a MsgBox open up that states this file is confidential and you click 'I Agree' button, or a cancel "I Decline"

I do not want the spreadsheet to be visible until they click on 'I Agree' button, and then if they click cancel, the Excel closes.

This is not a huge security issue, just a reminder for the Top Brass not to email out the file. This is for looks and show only

Openoffice On Ubuntu 13.04 - Document Won't Open

Jun 12, 2013

I'm running on Ubuntu 13.04 and have a problem with libreoffice and openoffice alike. With libreoffice the problem occured, then I removed libreoffice and installed openoffice, on which the same problem occured.

Sometimes, when I open a writer document, it doesn't open. When I look into 'system-monitor' I do see the process is started, but it won't open. It doesn't do anything. No error message, nothing!

And when I try to 'end' or 'kill' the process in system monitor, it just doesn't. Then I log out and log in again, and then when I open a document, it brings my to the recovery window.

Then everything is fine, till it happens again. The same problem occurs on another pc with 13.04 also.

Custom Format Code Injected On Document Open

Nov 19, 2012

I am experiencing odd behavior with Excel (v. 14). When a spreadsheet is opened, format setting of almost all cells in the workbook have changed to a custom code that reads "[$-409]0%". AFAIK the first part is not even a valid tag.

Because the underlying data is not changed, I can just select cells and reset formatting to "Number" or "General" and everything's fine. However, I'd like to get to to the root of the problem.

The problem occurs with only some workbooks. I should mention that the workbooks are circulated in different language versions of Excel, which may contribute to the problem.

1 Control Button 2 Functions?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a column ("R") which contains prices. What I'm looking to do is have a form control button that either hides that column, or better still just turn the font white (invisible)on the press of the button, then with another press turn the font back to black (visible) or do I require 2 buttons to carry out this function. I don't wish to have the column formatted in anyway after the changes, simply 1 press turns the font white and either another press (or another button) turns the column back to the exact same state (no formulas present) as it was.
