When I duplicated a worksheet in Excel 2007, I received a warning that "A formula or sheet you want to move or copy contains the name ___" (an existing Name) and was given options. The Name in question should not have been relevant because I never intentionally linked it to the worksheet that was being duplicated, but apparently something happened at some point to create such a link.
I opened Name Manager and deleted the Name in question, and this invoked a warning. "Privacy warning: This document contains macros, ActiveX controls, XML expansion pack information, or Web components. These may include personal information that cannot be removed by the Document Inspector." I had no macros. Each time I attempted to save the document, I got this error/warning, even after disabling Macro Security completely.
It was still saving, fortunately, so I closed Excel and relaunched, and the issue seemed to vanish.
Should I be worried about the integrity of my document? Everything seems fine now, but I'm a little concerned.
every time i choose Action X, i have a series of warning messageboxes appear. i want to run some code so that default option for each message box is selected every time a message box appears. this way i don't need to press Enter every time for each message box.
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.
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?
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?
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.
I'm trying to create a more user friendly (and easily updated) gantt chart for marketing campaigns running throughout the year. The difficulty is that we have approximately 100 products and each product can have anything up to 20 campaigns per year (never overlap, though, fortunately).
Campaign data is on one row per product in columns B:CC (each campaign consists of start date, end date, name and volume) but these are hidden from the user. The conditionally formatted chart runs from CD2:QD108 and is predominantly based on the start and end dates.
When any coloured cell is selected I want the relevant campaign name to be displayed, like a data validation message.
I'm guessing this is not (easily) possible, but I thought I might just ask in case: Can we change the messages in VBA run-time errors displayed by Excel. Better yet, I would like to avoid the Excel generated error box, and just have a text message written into a particular cell.
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.
I need to disable all kinds of messages that could appear in front of the user when it opens the workbook. I am already using DisplayAlerts=False and On Error Resume Next? Can we also do this through excel application itself and not using VBA ?
I have a spreadsheet which is linked to several other worksheets. I have managed to include formulas to count how many cells have numbers between 101 and 5000 by using this formula -
but now I want to count the number of cells in another worksheet that are equal to or less than zero. When I use the same formula as above it counts all the blank cells. I have tried using a countblank formula and then deducting this from the result, but unless the other worksheet is open the countblank formula does not work.
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 Next Sheets("Desktop").Visible = True Sheets(1).Visible = xlVeryHidden.....
See the attached sheet. I am trying to add together two figs which are linked to calculations which have formula built in to stop error messages when there is a 0 / 0 = #value type error. However when these two cells are added, if the cells are blank I get an error message. And if only one cell has a value, I get "" with my existing formula. what I need to do to get a result of 7 if for example cell A4 = "" + B4 =7. At the moment my formula shows "" in the sum total of these cells
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, Dont You Know How to Add) or an alternate formula that works.
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.
I have an excel sheet there i am maintaining the details of our sales invoices. Invoice no is in the column D . My concern is while entering a new number in the column D, excel should look at the entire column and give an error message if the no is already exixting in the column.
