Shared File Prints Differently For Different Users - Autofit Wrapped Cells

Apr 16, 2014

Here's the details:

Same file shared by many users in the office. File is maybe 2200 rows long and 20 columns wide. Last column is a text field where users can explain variances. Cells in the last column are wrapped and the rows auto-fit on the height. Zoom is set at 100%.

One person opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. Print preview also looks fine. File prints out perfectly.

Another user opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. BUT, print preview shows that the bottom line or lines of text is cut off. File prints exactly like the preview showed with clipped text.

Both users can point the file to the same printer, but that doesn't seem to change anything. Still prints with text clipped for one person and perfectly for another...

How To Change Filepath Or Dir When Users Have Drive Mapped Differently

Oct 23, 2013

I have written code that allows the user to open a file. To make things easier I changed the file path to point directly to the folder where all the needed files will be placed. The problem is everyone that will be using this work book map their drives differently. One user may have it as H, and the other as J. Also users can have the same drive mapped but at two different starting points. Ex: H:DataReportsxxxyyy or H:Reportsxxxxyyy this causes the code to crash. Is there a way do default the path so it will not matter how the drives are mapped?

Here is what I am using so far:

Dim filt As Variant ' flit to be used in the getopenfile. variant is need for its multiple
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String

Shared Excel Workbook Shows Different Information For Users

Mar 3, 2014

We have a Shared workbook on our Server and about 5 users work at the same time every day. I want to understand something, If I open it I can see all the information in it, all the rows and so on, but if the same workbook is opened by another user he will see other information, the rows aren't the same as in my case. Why does this happen ? I would like the second users to see the same information as I do.

File Location For Screen Prints

Jun 30, 2006

I am trying to write a macro which does a screen print of a couple of sheets in a spreadsheet. I created the macro using the recorder function and then trimmed it down a bit. However, when I run the macro it pops up with the box asking for a file location, and this is not something that the recoder function seems to write into the macro. I am not sure how to have the macro autofil the file location for the screen print. Is there anyone out there who can give me a hand with this? Thanks. The code for the macro is below...

Sub ScreenPrint()
Sheets( Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3")).Select
Application.ActivePrinter = "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer on Ne00:"
Selection.PrintOut Copies:=1, ActivePrinter:= _
"Microsoft Office Document Image Writer on Ne00:", Collate:=True
End Sub

Code Prints To PDF But Can It Do So For All 3 Prints?

The code bellow allows for me have the current sheet saved "printed" to a pdf file with name taken from a cell value.

After that it also prints 3 hard copies with a cell value being changed for each print.

Can I have this but on the pdf code so that the 3 pages are also saved "printed" to pdf?

Shared File

Jan 7, 2007

I am designing a workbook that techs in my lab can use from any of our network computers to submit requests for making chemical solutions they need to run their tests. Currently they have to fill out a paper form to make the request, so this should make things a little more efficient and less paper intensive.

I have the workbook designed and working, but now need to implement it as a shared file and this is where the problems are occurring. I assumed that shared files could allow access to the same file AT THE SAME TIME with no issues, but that is not the case in Excel97 on our network. Using two networked computers side by side I have tried updating the shared file at the same time and got a myriad of popups. The include:

1) Do you want to save the changes you made to "..."? (I did not include the actual filename here.)

2) A file named "......" already exists in this location. Do you want to replace it?

3) "......" is now available for editing. Choose Read-Write to open it for editing.

4) This file is locked. Try the command later.

5) This file has been locked by for saving. Try again later.


Are these error messages normal for shared files? Do some reflect issues more with the network than with Excel? Is there any way to get VBA to simulate clicking a Yes, No, or Cancel, or OK whenever a one of these specific messages comes up?

Autofit All Cells In Many Worksheets

Jun 22, 2008

1. autofit all cells in 38 worksheets
2. copy the previous row without looking up or deleting or inserting. Just a simple copy previous row of values and formulas down one (to the next row empty or not)
3. Hide columns with headings hide in the first cell of the column.

Remember, I have 38 worsheets in the same workbook that it has to cycle thru. 4 of those are pivots, so no need to include those.

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Save The Shared File

Nov 3, 2008

We have Excel 2003 at our workplace. I have shared a file, which is used by many users, so we can use the file at the same time. My problem is that if let's say I am writing a value in cell C2 and another user uses the same cell and writes another value there, and he saves the file and then I try to save the file as well, Excel will ask me which value to keep (the value written by the other user, or my value). Actually what I would need Excel to do is to save both, and put one under the other.

Autofit Merged Cells From Pdfs

Dec 3, 2009

I've just created a spreadsheet that we will be using as a project review form. In this spreadsheet I have multiple rows of merged cells, column D to N, for comments. I need these comment areas, merged rows, to autofit whatever is cut and pasted or typed into them.

The first problem is cutting and pasting from a pdf. All of the documents we received for the projects we bid are in pdf format. We often cut and paste from those documents into an older version of our review sheet that was built in Word. Trying to cut and paste the same information into Excel ends up in failure. Is there a way that this can be done without jumping through hoops?

The second problem Iím running into is when I cut and paste into a comment area I get the typical Excel error message that the information being pasted does not fit the area it is being pasted into. It there a workaround for this?

My third problem is autofitting the pasted information into the merged cells. Iíve seen some VBA and tried a couple but they donít work automatically when the comments area is filled. How can I do this? I donít know VBA. I'm using MS Office 2003

Autofit Merged Cells With Wrap Text

Aug 6, 2007

I found referred to writing a vba code such as the one below:

Sub Format()
End Sub

I have tried a vba code such as the one above but the issue persists.

I have a worksheet with merged cells [horizontal]; each cell is also formatted to warp text.

The issue is that the row size or cell size [vertical] does not adjust when the user types more text than what the cell size can handle.

May 28, 2008

I've been having trouble recently with my workbook file size growing rapidly due to copy and paste commands and such. I found a very nice macro to reduce file size called ExcelDiet located at [url]

Dim LastCol As Long
Dim ColFormula As Range
Dim RowFormula As Range
Dim ColValue As Range
Dim RowValue As Range
Dim Shp As Shape

This code works fine until I share the workbook. Can anyone take a look at this code and provide some information as to why this might be happening?

Linking Cells Globally To Allow Users Ability To Change Cells On Separate Sheet / Cells?

Feb 18, 2014

I have a workbook that uses the values that a user had entered into 3 cells to calculate multiple other charts/diagrams on multiple sheets within the workbook. Each sheet would show what the user had entered in the 3 cells to allow them to see what is being used to calculate each table. Is it possible to link these cells so that the user can change the 3 values without having to go back to where he originally entered the 3 values?

For example, a user has entered in 3 values in Sheet 1. A formula in Sheet 2 displays what is entered by the user and uses these calls in Sheet 2 for calculations. When the user wants to change the three values, he would have to navigate to Sheet 1 and enter in the new values to have the workbook recalculate all the tables. Is there a way to link the three cells from Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 so when the user is on Sheet 2, he has the opportunity to change the values on the current Sheet without having to navigate to Sheet 1 to do so?

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

File Gets Locked By Users That Only Have Permission To Read

Feb 11, 2013

A user in our company has a document on a shared drive in our domain. It's using the protect feature which means that you'll have to type username/password before you're allowed to edit the document. The problem is that users who only want to view the document will cause it to lock, and then you can't edit it before they close it.

I thought that sharing the document would solve this issue, but when I tried to it said that Visual Basic features would not work which basically makes the document useless so that's not an option.
