Set Desktop Background

Mar 28, 2008

Im designing a desktop background for my office, and want to roll it out once complete. Rather than trying to email the image out and get people to do it manually, is there anything in vba i can do to assist in this? I know its asking a bit much, but ive been surprised in the past with how versatile vba is! (i.e mapping network drives). I asked the IT guys to do it over the server, but they started ranting about screen resolution, priority of other jobs etc etc.

Change Desktop Icon

Dec 4, 2008

I was wondering how I could change my desktop icon for one specific workbook to something other than the excel icon. I saw the below link (2nd tip) but that changes the icon for every file of a specific file type. I just want to change one specific file's icon on my desktop to something custom, like a clipart picture of my choosing. I also know that this can be done with shortcuts, but I need it to be changed on the original file. I tried using the IconChanger program, but the icon stayed with the file name so if I did a "save as" or emailed the file, it disappeared. I want it to stick with that file for good, or any file I duplicate from the original, and work on other computers as well.

VBA To Open A File On ANY Desktop

Oct 16, 2009

I am sending this workbook out for several buyers to use. Part of the macro opens a workbook on their desktop named "Backorder List.xls" and copied data to it. The problem is, the way it is written, I have to go around to each buyers computer and edit it so the vba is looking in the right directory for the file. Is there any way to modify this so that it will open the file "Backorder List.xls" no matter who's desktop it is on?

Launch A Desktop Shortcut

Apr 6, 2008

I have a lot of shortcuts to movies for my 5th grade students which won't work. I can launch direct file names but not shortcuts from within excel I can click on a cell to launch a direct file like this = "C:Program FilesOfficexpOffice10winword.exe" /n "c:mode.doc" but if C:modeSC.doc" is a desktop shortcut then it opens winword but not the document.

I get " document name or path is not valid" from within winword. But if I go to drive C and click on the shortcut, it opens winword and the ModeSC.doc which is a 1 KB shortcut.

Copy Selected Data To Workbook On Desktop..

Oct 13, 2009

As the buyer edits orders, I have a macro which pulls out all the parts with changes and puts them on a sheet named "Changes" in the attached "Sample" workbook. Since the buyer will do dozens of these edits a day, I'm trying to create a simple way for them to create a list of parts they may want to try and buy from another source.

I would like to add a macro that would open a message box telling the buyer to select the parts they want to copy. They could select whatever rows they want to copy to the "Backorder List", and select "OK" or hit "Enter", and the macro would open the workbook named "Backorder List.xls" on their desktop, (mine is located under "C:Documents and Settingsjerry.hutchesonDesktop"), and copy the selected rows to the workbook, then save changes and close the "List" workbook. It should only paste the values, to preserve whatever formatting is in the book being copied TO, and it should copy below any data already in the workbook.

To make things even more difficult, the macro would also need to copy the Vendor # and PO # from the top of the "Sample" workbook, (cells B2 and B3 respectively), and enter that data beside the other data just pasted beside the parts data in the backorder list. (I have entered sample data in the backorder list to show what I mean.)

Save Workbook To Desktop If File Doesn't Exists

Sep 22, 2009

I'm having a slight problem with this script. What I'm looking to do is before the workbook is closed is check to see if the workbook already exisits on the users desktop if it doesnt then save it to the users desktop. if is does exists then just exit the sub. Here is what I have so far but for some reason it kept displaying the aleart message that the file already exists and wants to save it again.

I just added the displayalerts = false in but the script still does not know that file already exists. So when the file is closed it keeps saying file has been placed on your desktop.

Set WB1 = ActiveWorkbook

'First thing, save my work
WB1.Save

CurrPath = WB1.Path

'ASSUMING THAT C6 and O3 are BOTH in WB1
'move this line HERE: only do this once, and concatenate in the Select..Case later
'doing thsi inside the Select..Case pulls values from WB2, which might cause errors.............................

Unprotect ALL Sheets, Create Folder And Save Copy On Desktop

Oct 23, 2007

I have a workbook which consists of 28 worksheets, all of which are protected, and are running on a code which automatically keeps all sheets at "unlocked cells" in the selection field. The sheet is also password protected for write-access…

I would like a Macro, or some sort of code, that when activated… it unprotects ALL sheets (which use same password), creates a folder on the users desktop, and saves a copy of the document in there… entitled "copy of {filename}" It must also remove the "write access" password…

Change Row Background Color Using VBA

Nov 19, 2012

Try to find a way to automatically change the color of a row, based in changing the name in column A.

I tried conditional formatting but the name (or dates) in column A are not the same (always other and other).

I failed to adapt any VBA CODE (found in GOOGLE) because column A varies a lot.

Change Background Color Of Every Second Row?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a given som (general) range where I would like a function to change the background color of every second row in a visual basic function.

One could of course just loop through it and use the mod function, but I think there has to be something quicker.

I know about conditional formatting, but it is something I need to use over and over again on Ranges that will differ in size so I would like it to be a function I can just run as part of a sub.

Add Background Color Dropdown?

Jan 24, 2013

There is a color i like to use alot for shading cell background, and i'd like to add it to the background color dropdown. Now, i get to it by clicking "more colors" and then selecting it from that dialog. This is a lighter shade of yellow. I swear it used to be on the dropdown, but i believe it was removed at some excel version, so now its more of a hassle for me to get to it. Is this customization possible? In the macro recorder, it comes out as .Color = 10092543. Now, it will occasionally show up for a while under "recent colors" but then that will go away after a while.

Running Macros In Background

Feb 29, 2008

I usually run it on a different server while I work on another available server. However, if I am in Excel on a different server working, I cannot copy and paste in Excel (if I try to copy & paste, I end up pasting data from the macro). This makes sense since the macro is copying & pasting but is there any way around this? I purposely didn't past the code since it's huge but it has a lot of "cells.copy, activesheet.paste, etc".

Background Text To Be Overwritten

Feb 20, 2009

I am trying to create a user form, and need to admit at this point that unfortunately I have no knowledge of VBA - bog standard excel formulae are what I know!

I am trying to create a section for people to enter an address, and in itself this is quite straightforward, but I want to be able to enter faint text in the cells as an information instruction that will disappear as someone starts to type in that cell. Can anyone help with a method that would work within Excel versions 2000, 2003 & 2007? (I realise that I could insert a comment, but it's not an obvious instruction, and given the Excel knowledge of a lot of people who will be using this form, it would be completely overlooked!)
