Hyperlink To Embedded Object

Mar 28, 2008

I'm using Excel 2003 and have a spreadsheet that I want to distribute to a handful of people around the globe.

I want some cells in the page to link to various PDF files which I need to distribute with the worksheet.

I can embed the PDF files no problem, but I need each link to the embedded objects to take up no more vertical space than one row of text (without an Icon) - ie I need to be able to access the object through a "hyperlink style" item.

I can't figure out how to do this, as the hyperlink function does not seem to permit linking to embedded objects.

Using Macros On Excel Object Embedded In PPT

Dec 19, 2005

Setup: I have a ppt presentation with several MS excel worksheet objects embedded.

Goal: I am trying to write a macro in ppt which opens an embedded object, then once it is open applies an existing excel macro that is in my personal excel book.

The code from ppt "record a macro" stops at ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.Shapes("Object 8").Select
ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.OLEFormat.DoVerb Index:=1

How can i let it know that the active window is an excel sheet? and if i get there, can i run a macro once in?

Proper Way To Replace And Delete Embedded Object?

Oct 25, 2012

what I am doing is running a parameter query. Based on the users selection it pulls in and embeds a pdf file based on a link put into cell A1. The problem is when the user selects another file. My current process deletes all of the oleobjects on the page (because I couldnt figure out how to just delete this pdf embedded object as it is named differently each time it is pulled in) My current process worked fine up until I needed to add some controls (radio buttons) now when it loads the next file it deletes the radio buttons. Is there a way to name this embedded pdf file so that I can then delete only that object? or is there a fundamental better way to handle this?

below is the section in question

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim KeyCells As Range
Set KeyCells = Range("A1")
If Not Application.Intersect(KeyCells, Range(Target.Address)) _
Is Nothing Then
Dim wsh As Worksheet
For Each wsh In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Next wsh
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 0).Range("j1").Select
ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(Filename:=Range("a1").Value, Link:= _
False, DisplayAsIcon:=False).Select

Lock Format In Cell - Even If Copy And Pasting To That Cell

Aug 17, 2006

Is it possible to lock in the formatting that would require 12 digits even if someone was copying and pasting to the cell?

We are looking to make our users add information into cells in the format 0-00000-00000-0. They are often copy and pasting, thus overwritting the custom format we have in those cells.

I've looked at validation, but custom only works for a formula.

Object Library Invalid Or Contains References To Object Definitions

Jan 17, 2005

I'm getting the following error:

"Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found"

I wasn't getting that error last night and I'm not sure what I may have done to cause this error.

It seems to be cause by code running on one sheet of my workbook, but I'm not really sure about that. I'm still a bit of a novice at VBA.

I'm using Excel 2002 SP3 and I'm running MS XP Home as my OS.

Do you have any ideas what can cause this error and/or how to trace down the offending objects/code?

Numbers Not Pasting Right In The Cell?

Nov 25, 2013

I'm trying to paste the number 1-987654321 into cell A1. But when I click the cell onces then Ctrl+V to paste, it converts the number. It puts 1 into cell A1 and 987654321 into cell A2. I've tried changing the format of the cell to TEXT and GENERAL but that doesn't work. Now I can double click the cell and then paste and that works. My only issue with that is all the other data I'm pasting into the spreadsheet, I'm able to do so by only clicking once. This spreadsheet will be used by 20 people and I'm afraid that if they paste by click once in all the other cells and have to double click to paste in this cell, that it will cause confusion and a headache for me.

Pasting Into A Single Cell

Apr 10, 2013

I'm working with the sort of data that spills over into multiple cells if you try to paste it without first putting the cursor in the function window. Is there any way to change this default behaviour (or, alternately, automatically redirect the cursor to the function window every time I hit "enter" and go to the next cell)? I'm working with literally thousands of entries, so the time spent double-clicking and/or manually redirecting the cursor to the function window adds up after a while.

Pasting To Last Active Cell

Jan 26, 2007

I'm trying to paste columns to the last active cell on another sheet and I'm doing something wrong.

Sub WPRFilterMacro()
' WPRFilterMacro Macro
' Filter and copy and paste WPR information into WPR sheet
Sheets("Data Sheet").Select
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="Work Place Resources"
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
'This takes command activates cell G7 after being on D5, don't know why
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("D2").Select

I'm trying to paste this column to the first non-active cell in column D, but the code is taking it down two rows and two columns down, depending on where the active cell starts. I would just start it on a certain cell, but eventually, there will be different starting points.

Copying Part Of A Cell And Pasting It To The Cell Next To It

Sep 7, 2007

I have just generated a report of current customer numbers for our company. Unfortunately it reports it as "162 (162)". No idea why the program does it like that because it now makes using VLOOKUP very difficult.

What I want to do is copy the "162" part of the cell and paste it into the adjacent cell to make it easier to manipulate the worksheet. All of the customer numbers are in column D if that makes a difference.

Pasting Values Below Target Cell

Dec 27, 2011

* I want to copy a range that starts at 1 cell immediately to the right of AddressStart and extends for 100 cells wide
* I want to paste 10 rows of this information
* AddressStart will be a variable address such as B2, B10, B1000

Here is my current code (which fails on copy/paste):

For NewRows = 1 To 10
WSReqs.Range(AddressStart).Offset(NewRows, 0).EntireRow.Insert
WSReqs.Range(AddressStart, Cells(0, 100)).Offset(0, 1).Copy Destination:=WSReqs.Range(AddressStart, Cells(0, 100)).Offset(NewRows, 0)
Next NewRows

1) How do I set the relative reference to set the size of width of the row to be pasted?
2) Is it possible to refer to the end of the row (far right)

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Into A Cell

Feb 24, 2010

I am making template and trying to preserve formatting when users paste into a cell. From my research, I have found that this is impossible with simple format protection, it works to prevent changing formating, but if something is pasted (with normal paste), the format will change.

I have found a few solutions, but can't get them to work correctly

Solution A: Disable normal paste and substitute Paste Special - Values

How will this work with pasting via CTRL + V and the right click menu? I need both to function.

Solution B: Allow users to paste normally, but use a macro to copy formatting from a hidden sheet

I actually found code for this, but I couldn't figure out exactly how to impliment it. The sheet that users will be pasting into is called "Batch Summary" and I was trying to pull formatting from a sheet names "Batch Summary Format", but was getting an error.
