Page Setup Changes On Different Machines

I set up a spreadsheet for use by my colleagues, on an Acer 17 inch portable. My colleagues all use HP or Dell with 15 inch monitors (and different graphics cards to mine). They all complained that when they opened my sheet, the page breaks were all in the wrong place. When they fixed the breaks on their machines and I opened those file, the breaks were now in the wrong place on mine, but were all right on theirs.

I have now "upgraded" to a Toshiba 17 inch laptop, and find that my original spreadsheet done on the Acer 17 inch shows page breaks in the wrong place on my new machine.

Is this something to do with display adaptors? If so, does anyone know what I can do to standardise this across the board? (My boss uses a 20 inch screen, and the sheet for him is even more wildly out).

Excel Page Setup Up
This might seem a strange type of Excel question.

Some "Clever" person decided to create a site plan using MS Excel. It has been done quite well tbh. The problem with Excel is that I am unable to set a custom page size as this plan sits nicely on a paper size I made ealier through using Word. Guess what there is a custom page size selection on Word but not Excel. Is there a walkaround for this ?

The only other way I can do this, is to print off 2 a4 landcape print out but the printer goes to the next page and leaves a nasty seperation.

The copy of Excel i have is 2003 sp3

Using XLM4 Page Setup
I visited all of the sites listed in the various posts & downloaded the XLM function help file.

My question is which syntax would I use? I'm wanting to add this to an existing macro (one that currently takes FOREVER). I think syntax 1 for worksheets & macro sheets, but I'm adding to visual basic, so maybe syntax 3 for vb modules?

Here's my existing code, if anyone wants to help me change this to XLM4pageSetUp ..

Copy Page Setup From One Workbook To Another
Is there a way to copy page setup settings from one workbook to another in VBA?

Example, I have a spreadsheet with 5 tabs with each of them different page setup options.

I have a second spreadsheet with 5 tabs where I need to make the page setup the same for each tab as the saved spreadsheet #1.

Background: This is a workaround for not being able to do copy/paste special values for pivot tables. My workaround is to save an .xlsx as a .mht then reopen and save as .xlsx.

Macro Gets Hung Up On Page Setup
Once a week I need to export data to excel for a report. Some weeks there may be 30 rows and other weeks there may be 100 rows. I created a macro in the attached spreadsheet called 247 formattedV2 that seems to work fine except that it seems to get caught up in the Page Set up area. Here is the things that I have already in the macro that need to be accomplished.

1.All cells should be set to wrap text
2.Bottom justify text on row 1 for wrap text
3.Top justify all rows below it for wrap text
4.Adjust width of columns to exactly what is shown. If text runs over, it should wrap (shown in parenthesis)
5.Center all titles at the top of each column - show with grey background as indicated
6.Center text in columns A, B & C
7.Lighten grey cell in beteen each call (keep them in for all notes, they were accidently removed in this version)
8.Darken grey cell for column headers

Page setup: Set margins to narrow setting at .25 top, bottom, left, right. Set to landscape. Should be 1 page width, as many as necessary for height

Set for 8.5x14 paper (legal size)

Column Widths
A - Last Call Date (w=10),
B - Priority (w=7),.............

Buttons Disappear On Some Machines
In recent weeks, when I've been asked to demonstrate excel applications which make use of buttons, I've found that on some machines the buttons will variably display as flat grey rectangles with no label, or boxes with red 'x's, or alternatively not appear at all. There seems to be no pattern since the variations have all happened on single machines, then not at all on similar machines.

So far it has only been company laptops (not my own machine), hooked up to overhead projectors which end up with this problem. I can't think of anything I would have done manually to disable the buttons from appearing.

Is this a known issue, or is this simply down to the user preferences and/or security settings?

Formula On A Page Updated When Any Value On The Page Is Changed
Assume that calculation is set to automatic and not manual, then is every formula on a page updated when any value on the page is changed, or only when the values in the cells pertaining to a particular formula change?

For instance, if cells a1-a10 have values and in a11 is a sum a1-a10 formula, and in b1-b10 are values and a sum b1-b10 formula in b11, if I change a value in range b1-b10 but do not change any values in a1-a10,then as well as the formula in b11 updating will the formula in a11 recalculate or does excel keep track of which cells have changed and thus is aware that the formula in a11 does not need to be recalculated?

How Would I Properly Setup A 2D Coordinate System?
I am setting up a spreadsheet to be able to calculate loads on spread footings. The thing is the footings may be as small as a 2 x 2 or as large as a 6 x 6 or any combination inbetween so I need a coordinate system (to the nearest inch with a max of 1800 inches) to be able to assign each spread footing to a certain spot in the system with which I can calculate the soil stresses.

I intend to make this as idiot proof as possible for anyone who uses this spreadsheet so I was going to set it up as in the attachment where a user can input each individual load on each footing and the distance between it and its neighbors. The numbers are just random values with in each footing and feet between each one. Naturally most people would probably begin data entry in the upper left footing first so I was going to make that the origin unless for coding purposes the lower left would be best.

In this case the upper left footing would be 0,0 and the footing to its right 20,0 and the one farther right 55,0 (20+35) and so forth.

But, if I right click I don't have the choice to go to properties and change the group for the button. Please let me know how I should proceed. Wish I could copy and paste a picture of what I'm talking about. If I right click on the button I get these options:

Print The Area With Dynamic Setup?
My worksheet (excel 2003) contains lots of details and requires different page setup for printing e.g.

(a) Cells B3 to R3 downwards: Data details, which user may add more rows of records
(b) Cell S1-Z20: Data summary (formula) linked with (a)
(c) Cell AA1-AK15: Pivot Table linked with (b)

Therefore, I set buttons, linked with 3 macros to do page setup for the different ranges. However, I had some problems i.e.

1. For print area (a), how to define print area parameter in a macro to check the last row of data. i.e. check for last "blank cell" of column "C-E" (others columns contain formula before input the data)

2. In the future, if I or user insert new columns in area (a), is it possible to setup macro that have print area for (a) - (c) shifted without changing the parameter in the macro?

Setup A Basic Stock Control Spreadsheet
I've set-up a basic stock control spreadsheet. Part of this requires updating prices of products. My approach was to use 3 columns A,B & C. C would show the current unit price of a product. Where there is a change in price this would be entered in A which would then result in a new average unit price to be calculated automatically in C. When ever this change occurs i need the then 'old' price which was in C to be shown in B aswell.

I've tried using various averaging formulaes but i'm thinking they were probably to basic or just plain wrong

So, I am trying to figure out how the best setup could be done to make this easier for pivot table analysis.

So I have 12 "rows" for each account item for each year.

Maybe I should wait for comments and/or questions before going further.

Add A Second Sheet To Workbook Named "SetUp"
I have a "Menu" workbook that has 1 sheet named "MyMenu" which only has macros and Hyperlinks on it.

I would like to add a second sheet to this workbook named "SetUp".

Next, as an example, I would have the user list 20 Excel Workbook.xls files on the 2nd sheet (SetUp sheet) in Cells A1 thru A20 (as my example). In column B, directly adjacent to each file, they would enter a generic name of their choice, representing each file. These are files that they would be using frequently. The file names would be entered in cells B1 thru B20.

Now, I need 20 macros on "MyMenu" that can open these appropriate files listed on the SetUp sheet. As an example, I could have 20 macros that are located in Column D on "MyMenu". They could be located in cells D5 thru D24.

2 Things I want these macros to do . . .
First . . .
The Generic name would be displayed in the appropriate cell in column D so that the user would know which workbook they are going to open.

And Second . . .
Clicking on the Generic name would open the associated file.

NOTE: If the user were to enter a new file name in one of the cells in column A and a new Generic name, the name for the macro on "MyMenu" would automatically be changed and the new file name would be opened when the macro was clicked.

What I am looking for is a way of running macros from "MyMenu" sheet by clicking on any paticular macro I want to run just like normal . . . but, I want the macro on "MyMenu" to open the file that is listed in column A of the SetUp sheet.

"MyMenu" has to be a locked sheet. Therefore, the user can not enter or change macros on "MyMenu". I actually have 5 or 6 macros that I would like them to be able to change, but again, "MyMenu" has to be "Password" protected. Additionally, many of the users simply don't know anything about macros or hyperlinks
