I have an excel sheet that has 3 command buttons on it, i am wanting to open a saved excel sheet that i have on my shared drive from the command button. I know the path of the saved file but how do i get the button to open this file?
As well as this i this i also have another command button what i want to open another sheet in the excel document with the command buttons.
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?
I am trying to enable a command button on opening the Workbook, However it dosent work. I have placed the command button on the worksheet. Programatically it gets disabled on clicking it once. So i want it to be reactivated on reopening the Workbook.
I am trying to create a sheet with 'buttons' on, a bit like a 'linked table of contents', that will take the user to individual sheets (as opposed to clicking on the sheet tabs). I can see how to place Command buttons on a sheet (in this case Sheet1), but I think I need help with the code to make the buttons function as I envisage. Is this in the scope of help via this forum?
I have three columns. the first column is a list of buyers (19), then second column is a list of suppliers (27) and the three column is the time. each supplier has ranked the buyers and the order they want to meet them.
every meeting is for 20 minutes e.g 1st meeting at 8am then next at 820am.
i can do all of it manually but the schedule becomes too long.
is there a way to make the schedule in a way that it is easily readable by anyone and if I need to add anything, it should not be an issue.
I have a main worksheet that has two combo boxes. The first combo box has a list of machines. The second combo box brings up a list of models for the type of machine selected. I would like to insert a command button, that when pressed will open a different worksheet with the specs of the model selected in the second combo box. I am having trouble finding a starting point for the code to have the command button perform this.
How can I return name of a command button on click? I want to create some sort buttons on a sheet I will use regularly to speed things up. I thought if I could call each sort button by the column letter the button sits in I can use this in a single sub for all buttons
e.g the button sitting in column A is called "A". when i click the button, it returns it's name to a variable which I can then use to sort column A. I know I could create a seperate routine for each button but I was just trying to think of something neater.
Is there anyway I can schedule an excel workbook to open up at a certain time; I have some code attached to the Workbook Open function; so when the workbook is opened the code will run; but I need the workbook to automatically open at say 17:00 everyday so the code can run.
This is probably really straight forward but cant see why it happens, the following macro works fine when called by a button created by the form toolbar but doesnt when called by a command button, get the runtime error 1004, "select method of range class failed"
I have read several articles saying using a command button as a toggle button can't be done but some articles have said it is possible using the state properties.
.State = msobuttondown .State = msobuttonup
Is there any way to combine this with the onaction property so that when you press the button, it stays down and activates a macro then when you press it again it pops back up and activates another macro.
So, I've been trying to work out a distribution list. So far, my research has shown me how to code to be able to send a message through outlook by typing content into a spreadsheet, but I'm trying to find code that will simply open a new message window in outlook. I don't want to send it through excel as I've found to be possible b/c outlook is asking for permission to send to each recipient on the mailing list and we have a fairly large staff here, so clicking that button 20 times to allow the email to go through is more labor intensive than just verifying who's on the distribution list and sending.

I have searched this topic but I came up with nothing regarding my exact situation.
I have 5 buttons on sheet 1. I want them to all direct me to another sheet in the same workbook. However, some buttons will contain more than one sheet.
Example: Button 1 will direct me to 4 different sheets. Is this possible?
Also, When I open the workbook, I see many sheets that I am working from but I do not want them to show up when I open the workbook. The only way to see these sheets is to click on the command buttons at the top of sheet 1.
I have a 2 worksheets. One "Projects in Process"and the other "Project Completed". when the users fill in the information in cells A4-F4 (line 4 is the starting line and it could go down as far as line 23 or a23 - f23) In Projects in Process they press a "completed Project" command button and the data in a4-f4 copies over to worksheet "Projects completed". In the next available row (starting at row 4).
