I'm looking for a way to use VBA to set the window size upon opening the workbook. When the document opens, there should be two windows, each taking up half the screen and each on a particular tab.
Currently, if I save the workbook with the window settings I want, when I open it, both windows are maximized. When I hit the restore button, they go back the settings with which they were saved, which is what I want it to look like as soon as it's opened. Also, a bonus would be for the code to determine the screen size, so it can fill the screen no matter what monitor/computer it's opened on.
I have an Excel based application that needs to run with a screen resolution of 1024*768 in order to display correctly. Is it possible to use VBA to detect the users screen resolution. Then: If the screen resolution is not set to 1024*768 then resize Excel's main window to run at that width and height?
My set up office 2007 win xp pro ie 8 I am using the code below to retrieve web pages etc it works fine, however it display in differ areas of the screen, so I was wondering if there is a way to control the positioning and the size of the window?
Code: Set EXP = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.application") EXP.Visible = True EXP.Navigate (aurl)
I have a certain macro which copies data from one file to the other. There are several target files (refering to a given month each) and one source file. The user chooses a month from a drop down list in the source file which modifies a certain cell. The value of this cell decides on which of the 12 target files will be opened to paste the data to. The macro also copies the value of a cell which refers to the current date (=TODAY()) This number is then compared with a the range (value between two pints in time: start and end date of a given month). All I need is some sort of a pop-up window with a header i.e. WARNING. and the window text: You are about to send the information to a file which does not refere to the current month, are you sure you want to perform this action" and two buttons YES and NO in case the value of the current date does not match the range set up by the starting and ending of a given month in the target file. The button YES would then do waht ever the code that was placed before the pop-up window said, save the aplication and close it, and the NO button would simply close the aplicatiown without saving it. Something like that:
Sub Export() 'the whole code describing the action to be taken If Range("A1").Value >= Range("A3").Value And Range("A1").Value <= Range("A2").Value Then 'here the A1 cell refers to the current date and cells A2 and A3 to the start and the end date of the month End Sub
i have a macro that performs the same search in many websites, opening a new ie window for any site. What i want now is opening a new tab in IE instead of a new window. To illustrate, here go some code:
VB: Dim PartNo As String 'Declaro la cadena de texto que determina la busqueda Public Sub BuscarPLCCenter() Dim IE As InternetExplorer
I would like that all of these procedures opened a new IE tab to do the search, cause actually it opens like 15 windows at a time and is not user friendly enough.
Is there any way to have a macro, that is started from the immediate window, close the immediate window when it's done. My macro closes the immediate window, but as soon as it ends, the immediate window reopens and my cursor is inside it.
There is a column with a formula and a list validation, and an adjacent hidden column with numbered ids. When moving into the list validation cell the Worksheet_Selection_Change event code saves information about the Target cell - value, address, formula. When a value has been obtained from the list the Worksheet_Change event code looks up a belonging id in a lookup table and put this in the hidden id cell, and puts the saved formula back into the list validation cell. This makes the sheet (or window) unmanagable.
When I move around the sheet I can see the cell name in the Name Box, but the sheet itself is not visible. The only way to display the sheet is to add a new window (Window - New Window), choose the first "frozen" window (Window - 1. window) and quit this window. Then the new window is ready for use, but of course with the same limitations as the newly quitted one. Ring a bell, someone?? The funny thing is that in this workbook I also use the same functionality in another sheet without any problems.
i was recently upgraded to Excel 2003 and have found that whenever i open more than one workbook, it opens in a new window on the taskbar (similar to opening another application)... I remember having this in my previous version of excel but i can't for the life of me remember how i switched this off?
I open up Excel by double clicking on a file, it opens but it just has a grey background and the file I opened is displayed as a small 1 inch stip in the top left - just a title bar with the windows maximise, minimise and close buttons.
I've built a macro to run a loop that opens excel files, prints certain sheets and closes them. I have the macro working - to some degree. here is my code (this is excel):
OldPath = "S:RMBS_Performance_Analytics Analysis1 Staging Folder For Monthly Model Templates2007200704VVDeals" Dim t As Workbook Dim s As String Dim a As Window
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = OldPath .SearchSubFolders = False .Filename = "*.xls" .MatchTextExactly = True If .Execute() > 0 Then For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count s = .FoundFiles(i)
I have 2 problems. First problem is that I am trying to add a function to make the window close once its finished printing. This actually works - but it limits my loop iterations from i = 1 to 2 (so it only runs 2 times and I'm not exactly sure why). If I don't include the statement - this can run for up to 7 - 8 times (these are very large files) then excel runs out of memory. Unfortunately, i can't set the loop to run from i = anything other than one.
So What I would prefer is to be able to make the "ActiveWindow.close" command work - because this way I can run the entire loop. But I'm not sure how to. I tried window referencing, I tried adding a new active Window so when the file opens, its opening in the active window already, but nothing works.
Preferably, I need to be able to reference both windows, as my next macro will involve referencing 2 windows (one static - always open) and the other the loop above.
Heres a strange thing, My latest version of a spreadsheet i have design has got a small problem. When clicking on a cell, nothing appears in the edit window, and when you double click on the cell to edit the contents the data disappears.
This only happens on one sheet within a workbook of 7 pages. The werid thing is that it does not happen on the version before
Any ideas how this could of happened and is there a fix?
I have a workbook open. When I try to open a separate workbook, it opens already opened workbook (basically linking the workbooks as one). I want to have my workbooks on two separate screens this is preventing that. How to unlink these workbooks.
A macro, which would allow me to click on a particular cell, which will have an ID number (1 through 34), each ID# is attributed to a particular employee. These ID# are located in my spreadsheet in columns B & G, and the ID #'s begin initially in B6 & G6 and continue downward to B34 & G34. These ID #'s are used in a vlookup type formula which covers 35 pages of this workbook. What I'd like to do is be able to click on any cell between B6& B34 (and/or the same in G6&G34), which has a particular ID # in it and have the photo of that particular employee designated with that ID# pop up in a window generated by the macro. I hope this makes sense! Any help would be greatly appreciated. My 1st sheet in my workbook is my "lookup" tab, which contains my ID# list and numbering sequence affiliated to each employee. So I'm not sure if I'd need to put the photograph of the employee in a column next to the employees name or have a folder designated with all my pictures in a certain directory, etc.
I'm trying to manipulate a URL in an already opened IE browser window. In a nutshell, I need to change "http://www.excelforum.com" to "http://www.excelforum.com/this-is-the-new-part"
The code prior to this does the following: - Opens a new instance of IE - Enters the username and password required to get into the site - Scrapes the source code, imports it into Excel, and parses the data - Finds a row based on the current date and some text - Extracts from that row a unique identifier... - Obtains the window handle ID for the instance of IE displaying the website
Now I need to add the unique identifier to the url. I cannot open it in a new tab or instance of the browser, as it revokes back to the login screen. I was assuming that the best way to do this would be to get the window handle, then just send a "tab" to get back to the URL, and enter the new URL. If there's any other way to do this, I'm all ears. Otherwise, how can I send the keys using the window handle?
This code takes all the data from a listbox and throws it into a sheet so that I can print it. I would like the print window to open ready to print this one sheet but allow the user to make sure the right network printer is selected before hitting print.
Code: Private Sub cmdPrint_Click() Dim i As Long Dim ws As Worksheet If Me.lstPrintRooms.ListCount = 0 Then MsgBox "The are no rooms in the list to print"
I have a macro that launches another program (Windows Title - Storm). I then use sendkeys to have it export the file to an excel file. (This launches another instance of excel.) I want to be able to focus back to (Storm) so I can sendkeys to close the program down. I can get it to the end result using sendkeys, but I am trying to have it switch back to the Storm application so the user does not need to close it manually.
