Computer IP Address

Mar 10, 2006

I have a problem running an excel macro on different laptops because the IP needs to be known (my program links to databases that are installed on a "server" laptop). The IP can be sourced by using the "Start, Run, cmd, ipconfig" but my users can have problems with process.

Does anyone know of a vb function that will display the ip of the computer that the code is run on?

Scale Differs From One Computer To Another

May 9, 2014

Here's the scenario. A co-worker and I access the same file from the same online database and download it in the same manner. We have the same version of excel. We then open these identical files, we run a formatting macro (identical), but when it comes time to set the page breaks in order to get the items to print on the same page I have to increase a columns width to make it fit on one page and yet it still doesn't match theirs. It appears to have a different scale but I'm not sure of the option difference between our machines. I don't know how it could be the printer since it physically gives her different page break option than what mine does.

Formula Working In One Computer But Not On Another?

Jan 5, 2013

I have a Age calculating formula in an excell cell, which calculates the age as on another date.
The forumala is =IF(E4="","",IF($C$1="","",ROUNDDOWN(($C$1-E4)/365,0))) where E4 is the date of birth and C1 is the date in which I want the age calculated to be.

The above formula works very well on my computer, but does not on any other computer. If I access it from my sent items or from a shared drive, it works perfectly on mine, but not on any other computer!!! I get a #value error message on all other computers.

I have tried the foll:
If i enter =ISNUMBER(C1) where the age has to be calculated, I get #Name?
If I enter =ISNUMBER(E4), i get TRUE

The above is on the sheet where it does not work ( on others computer ) and i get TRUE for both on mine. Also both have the same date formats and same time zones...

Transfer Macros To Another Computer?

Jul 8, 2014

I am having trouble with transferring a Macros to another computer. I have saved and sent the file via e-mail as a .xls and .xlsm to no avail and tried other methods of transferring the macros to the other computer. Also No I cannot copy paste the coding information to the other computer since there are multiple macros buttons since they are add one item and subtract one item from separate rows for inventory at a warehouse (about 100+ rows x 2 = about 200+ macros buttons).

Identify A Specific Computer

Sep 9, 2009

I have few macros that I use to reconfigure a particular workbook into a sort of "developer mode". I keep them in a text file that I can paste them from when I'm working on it and then delete them before I send it out to other people.

I'd like to be able to script them so they only run if the workbook is open on a specific machine (namely mine). Is there any way to identify the specific computer a spreadsheet is being run on?

Subscript Out Of Range With New Computer

Jul 22, 2014

I created a code and I just changed computer. The code that was working perfectly fine on my previous laptop is no longer working now.

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:UsersUserDocumentsBCB MANAGEMENTBankArchiveData_TenantsData_Tenants_" & Left(strDate, 8) _
, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False
Set wbData = Workbooks("Data_Tenants_" & Left(strDate, 8))

When it reaches Set wbdata it says subscript out of range. I'm not sure how it cannot recognise the spreadsheet I just created and that is open and working.

I have code below that works well most of the time. One of the cases below will not work. It insists on requiring a name and password.

I want to enter this in my case line to automatically add the username and password.

Let's say the username is: "dave" and the password is: "happy"

How To Restrict A W/b To A Specific Computer

Oct 14, 2008

I've a workbook (XL 2003) test-1.xls, and I need to restrict it to a specific computer with ID: my-a1234567k

(shown under ControlPanel::System::Computer Name::Full computer name).

Is it possible to code such restriction in the w/b Open() event to prevent opening the w/b on a different computer?

My computers each has a different OS (Win 2000, Win XP Home, Win XP Prof ), different Excel version (XL 2000, 2003, 2007), etc., and the majority of my workbooks have been developed and would work only in certain environment (e.g.; in XL 2003 only, or XL 2007 only, ... ).

Module Runs On One Computer But Not On Another

Aug 12, 2009

I wrote some code that runs with no problem on my computer as well as another coworkers computer, but will not work on a 2nd coworker's computer. The "subscript out of range" error shows up at the point when the EMInput worksheet in the EMInput workbook is copied to the new workbook called "Out of Plane Section Cuts" (SEE BELOW). Is there an option in EXCEL or somewhere that could affect this. I don't see why you would get a subscript out of range error since the EMInput workbook is open....

Strange Thing Only On One Computer Running This XLS

Feb 4, 2009

Copy of the scaled down Workbook are enclosed. Password is "j". Sheet("Final Schedule") is one of 11 sheets in the Workbook. Range("a10: BE120") is copied from another Sheet and pasted.

ISSUE BACKGROUND: Entries into cells are Data Validation and a drop down on each cell. In cells C15, 16, 17, 18 or O15, 16, 17, 18 First time the Sheet is opened: user has no problem if they select a D from the drop down.

But if user types in D and hits enter key, contents of G10: M10 (merged cells) is copied into that cell. Any thoughts on where to check or what settings to check? It only happens on that one computer.
