I have created an Excel Workbook and this Workbook has a VBA code that enforces an expiry date of the workbook (TimeBomb from cpearson.com). So, if the expiry date has passed, the workbook will not open. But since it is VBA related, the expiry date will work only if one has enabled macros. If macros are disabled, the workbook will open regardless of the date.
So, is there a way for Excel to check if macros are enabled? and is there a way for Excel not to open the workbook, if the macros are disabled?
i am trying to work out why i always have to enable macro's when i open some of my files that i have macros in, as i save them as enable macro file. I run excel 2007 as there are files i want to open without clicking on the enable button.
Is it possible to open a workbook via vba, but disable the macros? I know this sounds strange, but the workbook is coded to prevent users from saving it, and the only way to save it is to either open it with macros disabled or change the variable OKtoSave to true, but the variable is global only to the sheet and I can't find a way to change it through a macro written in my personal.xls workbook.
I'm posting a workbook on our network that I want to enable users to go in and update. I have the workbook designed, with entry fields for the data they need to enter, and they then push "Submit" to submit the new data to a hidden tracking log within the workbook.
Many of the users will be complete Excel newbies, and although I haven't posted the workbook yet, I am trying to anticipate possible issues. The first that comes to mind is that the user opening the workbook may not have macros enabled in their version of Excel, and they will get a message, and can't perform the udpate. Is there a way to add a Workbook Open event that automatically enable macros in the workbook when they open it, even if it is for this workbook only?
Everytime I open Excel, the personal.xls file opens. What does one need to do to have the personal.xls file available as an option to save macros to, and have it open in the background only - not as an active file you can see?
I'd like to automatically run 1 of 4 macros depending on some criteria. Every workbook created has, unfortunately, the same worksheet name, so that leaves the only differences between the 4 possible loaded workbooks in the cells area and even those can be similiar in many ways. But....I found some criteria to separate all 4 workbooks...Here they are...
run macro 1 if this
1. Worksheet name says "Screen" 2. Cell H1 has the word "Lead"
run macro 2 if this
1. Worksheet name says "Screen" 2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell 3. Cell H1 has the word "Lead"
run macro 3 if this
1. Worksheet name says "Screen" 2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell 3. Cell N2 has the word "Delivered"
run macro 4 if this
1. Worksheet name says "Screen" 2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell 3. Cell N2 has the word "Bevel"
I don't know if this can be done, but if so, that would be fantastic! I'm thinking that the macro would have to be "global" and in the user's personal workbook?
I'm sure I have seen a workaround/alternative (to FileCopy) technique for copying files that another user may have open at some stage in the past but when I google all I can find is examples of code looping until the file is closed & then performing "FileCopy source, destination".
Are there any alternative techniques that will allow a copy to be taken of a file on a shared drive that another user may have open without having to have my code "pre-open & savecopy as"?
The reason I'd like to do this is to allow for (5) network files to be copied to a local (c drive before performing various filtering/extraction actions on each file. The consolidation/summarising code I currently have runs in about 3 minutes* when tested on my C drive but "Network speed" (?) has caused it to take 30-40 minutes + when using the live network files.
The files are weekly Production schedules that are created/controlled by Site Planners & may still be open by a number of users for review when I wish to complete the consolidation (after Planners let me know that they are saved/set for the week).
*All possible "Application.xyz = false" precautions have been taken to assist with code speed & reset.
I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.
I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.
I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.
No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?
I am currently using an Intersect statement in a worksheet module to perform two things: 1. Insert a time stamp into row 2 when row 1 has a price inserted 2.To clear that time stamp if the price is deleted at some later date.
My problem is with the time stamp value being deleted by the user. If I try to clear the price (now that the time cell =empty) I get a Runtime error 91 - Object Variable or With block variable not set.
I would like to convert this code to a select case statement but I'm not sure how to do this in this situation. Would error coding be appropriate in this instance?
Is there a way to hide a macro from the list where you choose which to run, but not in the VBA editor? The userbox I just created calls upon 2 different macros, and has a macro to bring up the userbox. I need a way to hide the macros in Module3 from selection, but keep the macros in Module4 available to choose to run.
I would like to write a Sub that will see if a workbook is open and if it is not then open it. I know how to have a macro automatically open a workbook, but I run into problems when the macro runs and tries to open an already opened workbook.
I'm trying to set up an if statement that will recognize that if a cell is FHR it will do something...but if it's PHR it will do something else. I think I found the place where I keep getting an error but I'm not sure how to go about fixing the issue.
I am attempting to use a previously Set variable as part of the next Set statement, pretty unsuccessfully at present.
My purpose is trying to look up
from a userform in Col Z then look across the row to Cols D,I,N,S & W (different types of work) to see if
matches the year selected then insert a formula in the row to the left. Then loop down to the FinalRow.
Currently my Set Found1 statement does not recognise my Found10 value. I know it will be my syntax as it always is. I have cut down the following code to display where the problem areas are, Found1 thru 5.
Sub CmdGo3_Click() Dim Row As Range Dim FinalRow As Long Dim Found1, Found2, Found3, Found4, Found5, Found10 As Range Application.ScreenUpdating = False
I have two macros. Macros 1 opens another excel file, counts the number of rows it has, inserts that number of rows into the master file and then copies the data over. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)... For k = 1 To numrows Selection.EntireRow.Insert Next k
Macros 2 'cleans' the appended data by systematically going through each row, checking if certain cells have data, and if not deletes the rows. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)...
For l = lastrow To 12 Step -1 If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("B" & l & ":C" & l)) = 0 Then Rows(l & ":" & l).Select Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp edelrows = edelrows + 1 End If Next l
Here's the weirdness. macros 1 runs fairly quick the first time out (few seconds). Macros 2 takes about 2 minutes to run (which I'm fine with). However, when I run macros 1 AFTER running Macros 2, Macros 1 goes from taking a few seconds to a few minutes.
how to use excel 4 macros. I do not even know where to put them. I have inherited some spreadsheets that have both Xcel 4 Macros and vba macros in them. (Well, I get a warning that I cannot switch them off when I disable macros on opening a workbook). I cannot even find the offending version 4 macros so that I can re-code them in VBA.
My Splash screen opens a few seconds after the workbook has loaded. Is there a way to make the workbook open minimzed until the the splash screen closes then open properly? What I trying to say is that only the splash screen is visible until it closes.
