Privacy Warning - Turn Off All Messages

I have put a macro in my spreadsheet to clear all hyperlinks it works great but now I keep getting the privacy warning message.

I have set the macro settings to accept all and put the spreadsheet in the trusted locations......but the warnings still keep coming
I do not want to turn off all messages just this one.

Warning Messages Before Leaving Sheet
Is there a way to have a reminder/warning message pop up before a user leaves a specific sheet?

I need users to sort a tool list before they leave the sheet and move on to a different sheet?

The name of the sheet is "Unit Tools". The command button is named "Sort Tool List"

Turn Off Messages While Typing Code
Is there a way to turn off those annoying error message boxes that pop-up when a line of code is incorrect? I pretty frequently go to another area of code to grab some previous code to copy and paste, and the error message box pops-up, so I have to hit OK to close it. It would be nice if it still highlighted the problem red, but I'd even give that up for those boxes to go away.

Turn Off Security Warning Regarding Macros
I would like the security warning not to pop up when the workbook is opened. I have been able to turn it off for myself but I had someone else test it and each time it's opened the security warning pops up with the disable, enable messages. Is there a way to turn this off permanently so not matter who opens it it won't pop up?

Turn #DIV//0!” To “0” Or Even Turn It To A Blank Cell
I have a workbook which is set up to take an average heart rate of a participant from a series of data points. I have set the spreadsheet up before I have collected some of the data. (so I can review the project at the 3 months period and its an ongoing project).

The problem is that if there is no data in a participants column then excel correctly gives you readout of “#DIV//0!”. On my results page this #DIV//0!” makes it hard to read the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get excel to turn #DIV//0!” to “0” or even turn it to a blank cell?

Disable Validation Error Messages
Is there a way to disable all error pop up messages from coming up due to an invalid entry in a cell that has data validation? So when a user types in a value, it doesn't pop up saying "retry, cancel, etc"? Just to save time and make it more user friendly, it would be nice to just dis-allow the entry, so when someone types an incorrect entry it just erases it or stays on the cell and keeps it highlighted but doesn't let you click away...something like that. This would be applied to the whole workbook and is for XL07.

Error Messages When Total Is Not 720 In Cell
I have a total box which should add up to 720 when other cells have data entered.

Is there a way that I could put up an error message if the total is not 720 in that cell when someone tries to save the worksheet?

Or maybe for eg, cell A1 does not add up to 720, if they then try and move on to cell A50, the message would appear then?

Macro To Cancel Startup Messages
I have a Macro that opens numerous excel files.

What code do I require to cancel the startup message?

ie. The message that displays "Disable / Enable Macros" (security setting cannot be changed, so message is always displayed).

Plus I then have some startup message boxes which I manually click OK to continue, but how do I cancel this messages using VBA Code?

Click Through Messages While The Macro Is Running
I have set up a macro that opens a set of about 20 excel files, one at a time,and then copies select sheets, and then pastes into a different main spreadsheet. After each sheet is opened and copied/pasted, I close it out and open the next one. My problem is I keep having to click through messages while the macro is running. I encounter the following messages:

1. Do you want to save (file that I opened and copied from)?

2. The formula or sheet that you want to copy contains the name "asdf.." which already exists on the destination worksheet. Do you want to use this version of the name?

3. A box comes up that says update values from this file:

4. There is a large amount of information on the clipboard. Do you want to be able to post this information into the clipboard later?

I would rather ignore all of these message boxes, but my answers to them are as follows:
1. No i do not want to save
2. Yes I want to use that version of the name
3. I want to select cancel out of this
4. No i do not want to be able to post that information.

Is there any way I can automate this?

Editing Run-time Error Messages

Workbook_open Event In Order To Stop Annoying Messages If You Haven't Physically Made Changes
I've been setting the above property to TRUE after making some changes in the Workbook_open event in order to stop annoying messages if you haven't physically made changes.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to copy through to the workbook_beforeclose event and I'm being asked if I want to save changes even though the macro made the changes and then set the property.
Here's my code for the open event :-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
On Error Resume Next
For counter = Worksheets.Count To 2 Step -1
Sheets(counter).Visible = xlVeryHidden
Sheets("Desktop").Visible = True
Sheets(1).Visible = xlVeryHidden.....

Warning When More Then Two Decimals Are Used
I am trying to put together a code so that when a user enteres more then two decimal points in the cell value they should get a warning regardless if they formatted the cell to show 2 decimals or not...

Simply the problem is on the sheet I have a lot of people format the cell to show two decimals but when you copy and paste the cell values to other sheets the decimals are still there which causes problems.

I am intermediete in VBA so if someone can shoot me some example codes I think I can make it work on my sheet.

MsgBox With Warning
I have several material takeoff sheets and one material SummarySheet in my workbook.

Each material takeoff sheet has a subtotal cell at the bottom of the sheet. The subtotals are added together and the total sum is displayed in a cell on the SummarySheet. At least that is how it is supposed to work. Excel or somebody else arbitrarily changed the cell reference in the SummarySheet formula to call up the cell one row above the subtotal cell on the material takeoff sheets. This little action resulted in a loss of $674,000 and may eventually result in my unemployment. Meanwhile I am sitting here putting out fires.

This is what I would like to do: Place a formula on the SummarySheet or add a Macro that will trigger a warning message box if the total on the SummarySheet is not equal to the sum of the subtotals on the material takeoff sheets. Also would like to have the message box animated or brightly colored.

If(PlateCostsTotals+AppurtenancesCostsTotals+StructuralCostsTotals+MiscellaneousCostsTotalsSummaryCostsTotal MsgBox “Hey, Don’t You Know How to Add”) or an alternate formula that works.

VBA Warning For Misplaced Workbook ...
I have one excel workbook (called “workbookA”) stored on network device (hard drive with its own ip address). The idea is not to allow users to save that excel workbook locally on individual pcs; otherwise, others wont be able to see updates done by a particular user that saved the workbook on his or her computer (regardless of intention).
The idea I have is to have a second workbook (called “workbookB”) on the same network drive; and cell $A$1 of this workbookB is being referenced by workbookA.

$A$1 cell of workbookB has value of ‘20’. And, cell A8 of workbookA refers to that cell

My code below checks the value of A8 cell of workbookA against the value of $A$1 cell of workbookB has value of ‘20’. If the values do not match, cell A9 of workbookA displays “Unauthorized Copy”. (One can even elect to have the VBA code to overwrite all cells - thus destroying the workbook.)

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("$A$8") "'[NO_NO.xls]SHEET00'!$A$1" Then
' places "Unauthorized Copy" to Cell $A$9
Application.EnableEvents = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Sheets("FID").Unprotect Password:="password"
Range("'[FID.xls]FID'!$A$9").Value = "UNAUTHORIZED COPY"
Sheets("FID").Protect Password:="password"
Application.EnableEvents = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End If
End Sub

I feel embarrassed, but this is the best idea I’ve got. Plus I am getting "Run-time error '1004'; Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed" & whenever the workbook is being opened, excel asks is the links (referenced) are to be updated or not (whole another story). Are there any simpler & more interesting ideas to ensure that the user gets alerted whenever the workbookA is removed from (saved in a location other then) the network device?

If TxtOther.Value Is Not In List Warning Msg
This part of the form is where the user selects the supplier of the fitness equipment via 3 buttons;


Clicking CmdOther checks if there is a text value in other so we have a record of the supplier.
We can't limit this to a definitive list as there may be new suppliers/some in other regions. However, I would like, when user click CmdOther, excel to look up the value they enter into TxtOther.

If it is in a set list, then it goes straight through, if not a MsgBox propmpts the user to check the name and gives them the option to edit the supplier or accept

Private Sub CmdOther_Click()
If TxtOther.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "You must enter a Supplier!"
Exit Sub

[This is where I want it to then check if it is valid before continuing bellow]

If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell = TxtOther.Value

There is a small probability that something else somewhere is calling a 4.0 command, but I have no idea how to find out what that is.

Run Macro Without Warning Prompts
I have an excel document which automatically runs a macro when it opens. The macro itself opens various excel documents, copies, Pastes and Deletes work sheets then saves the updated files in a new location. I simply used the Application. ScreenUpdating = False at the start of the macro and Application.ScreenUpdating = True at the end of the macro to hide all the various opening and closing and formatting of workbooks.

My aim is for the user to be able to open the document, wait a few moments while the macro runs, then be presented with the finished article when the macro ends without any need for interaction. The problem I am getting is as the macro runs, various windows pop up with messages such as "The file C:... already exists do you wish to replace the file" with a yes or no wchoice and "Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. with a delete or cancel choice To Permanently delete the data press Delete". What I want to be able to do is stop these windows popping up and for the macro to go ahead with replacing the file or deleting the sheets without being manually told each time.
