The submenus for the other main menu items are fine.

I have tried Tools>Customise Reset Menu and Toolbar usage. I then exit the Excel session, but the problem still remains,

Macro Code To Create Custom Menus & Sub Menus

Jun 9, 2008

I am using the following code to create a custom command menu.

Sub AddMenus()
Dim cMenu1 As CommandBarControl
Dim cbMainMenuBar As CommandBar
Dim iHelpMenu As Integer
Dim cbcCustomMenu As CommandBarControl
On Error Resume Next
Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls("&New Menu").Delete
On Error Goto 0
Set cbMainMenuBar = Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar")..........................

I want to add a new button control at the bottom of the menu underneath the holiday control but it keeps adding it on the sub menu, which leads off the holiday button control. I want the menu to look like this.

Open Net 2 Access
Add Employee
Edit Employee
Delete Employee
Holidays (3 options on sub menu)
*New Control

Custom Menus And Sub Menus For 2007

Feb 3, 2010

From this link: [url]

there is some clever code to create a customized menu in a dynamic Add-Ins section of the Excel ribbon; this section disappears when the workbook is deactivated and re-appears when it is activated. The custom menu has 2 main items each of which can launch a macro. There is also a 3rd main item called "Next Menu" which cascades nicely to a sub-menu. That sub-menu can have several items of its own. Very cool code.

However, I am trying to add a 4th item in the main menu, say, "Next Menu2" which also cascades to a sub-menu. The problem I'm having is when I try to replicate this code to accomplish this, "Next Menu2" appears in the sub-menu of "Next Menu", rather than as a separate (4th) main item below "Next Menu".

I believe there was another post (not sure of the date, but has since expired) which asked basically the same question as mine. There was a reply with code saying "This should work" but when I tried it, it didn't help.

I have been trying to find out a way to create Sub menu for that ,but could not?

Paste Special is no longer available in the Edit menu--it's grayed out. (I am using Excel 2003). I can't find any info on what disabled it or how to re-enable. It's probably something moronically obvious, but this moron needs a shove in the right direction.

How To Activate Greyed Out Ribbon Items?

Jan 2, 2009

I would like to restore some important functionality in Excel 2007 which has become disabled for a spreadsheet which I saved in different file formats.

I opened an Excel 2003 file with Excel 2007 and used 'Save As' into different formats (default, macro-enabled, binary) to see the resulting file size.

A number of Ribbon items are now greyed out for this file, including,
- Insert - Tables, Illustrations, charts, etc.
- Styles - conditional formatting and Format as table,
- Formula Auditing
- Data - just about all of them
- View - some of the Window items.
Also, I cannot resize or move a button on a worksheet.

Attempts to 'Save As' into the Excel 2003 format cause Excel 2007 to hang.

What caused so many features to become disabled?

How do I restore them?

Only Few Cells Normal - Rest Greyed Out

Mar 16, 2013

I sometimes come across spreadsheets that have only a few white, "normal" looking cells and the rest are grey with no borders.

Usually there is a thick blue line around the "normal" cells and I can make more cells look "normal" by dragging the blue border line.

What is this? And, how do I set it up in a spreadsheet if I need to?

I ran a simple macro that I created in my workbook, got a run-time error, clicked debug, clicked reset to stop the macro running, and now all of the icons in my workbook are greyed out.

Would really like to avoid terminating the application as I made a number of changes that I didn't save (doh doh doh).

Greyed-out Columns Based On Cell From Specific Column In Active Row Being Edited

Jul 7, 2014

I am making a spreadsheet in which I have been asked to have certain column greyed-out based on an answer that was given in a dropdown menu. Specifically, a dropdown menu in column D asks if the client was a Youth or an Adult. Depending on what the anwer is, other columns in the spreadsheet will be greyed-out; different ones for each answer. My problem is, I need this to occur for the active row being editted. For example: The first row that the user can input data into is row 4. If D4 is answered with "Adult" then certain other columns are greyed-out. However, if the next time the user updates the spreadsheet with information for a different client (now entering information in row 5) and they select "Youth" for column D5, then different columns get greyed-out. The columns that are greyed-out will depend upon the answer for the dropdown menu in column D for whatever row is actively being editted.

Macro Cannot Be Found Or Is Disabled Error

Mar 7, 2013

I have a worksheet with several option buttons and until yesterday, I had no problem selecting them. But today, every time, I select a radio button, an error shows up stating "Cannot run Macro "Option Button_click. Macro is not available in this workbook or is disabled". When the user selects a radio button, text appears in Col B depending on what button was selected (using VLOOKUP). That stuff is still working fine. It's just as soon as I click a radio button, the error shows up.

Based on the radio button selected, user can add in information to the columns adjacent to it, and then click a button to store that information in some rows below. The code for that button is stored in the sheet module. I have tried enabling macros and disabling macros and no change has appeared. What I have noticed though is that yesterday, when i opened the workbook, a yellow bar appeared asking if I wanted to "Enable Content". Today, that bar didn't appear.

Security Warning (Macros Have Been Disabled)

"Macros have been disabled."

Is there any way to remove the possible Macros ties/links from my file? I know I can disable the warning, but if I just want to remove the Macros ties to my file.

Hide All Sheets When Macro Is Disabled?

Aug 2, 2014

continued from: [URL]

Option Explicit forces explicit declaration of all variables in the code. That is why i had to declare ws as worksheet using the Dim statement before using it in the code. It is recommended to have it - however for this code it wouldn't have mattered.

I'm not sure I exactly follow what you imply here. But yes, you can hide all the sheets at first and then "unhide" at the start of the macro. Let's say you have a "Start" sheet.. then:

[Code] .....

The workbook is used by other people too. I cannot just tell them to hide the sheets, it defeats the purpose. What I want is, when macro is disabled, they will only see the START sheet, otherwise, all sheets will be visible. To add to this, a new sheet is added everyday. Sheets name are calendar dates in mmdd format

Macro Disabled Depending On Cell Value

Sep 24, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to prevent a macro from running depending on what value is in a specified cell.

I have a huge excel sheet and a commandbutton that runs a bunch of macros in order to generate a report.

I want to force the user to select a specific project before all the macros are run. Just making the report for a specific project only takes a few seconds but if no project is selected then it runs throught the whole database and it takes forever.

I have set up a cell that changes value depending on wether a project is selected or not. I have placed the cell in the -ForMacros- sheet. Now is it possible to write some code into the commandbutton that halts the report generation + displays a warning box telling the user to select a project first?

What values used to determine wether the macro runs or not doesnt matter to me. Whatever is easier for you

I have attached a sample workbook for you to work on.

Grouped Rows Disabled When Protecting Worksheets?

Nov 1, 2013

I have a protected worksheet which enables only certain sections to be edited, data inputs etc. I also have a set of rows grouped which need to be activated depending on data type for particular projects to be captured. Problem is, when the sheet is protected, when users click on the + and - buttons to either ungroup and group the rows depending on type of project, this feature is disabled.

I get a popup alert that tells me "You cannot use this command on a protected worksheet. To use this command you must first unprotect the sheet ....". Problem is I don't want all users to have access as giving them the password defeats my purpose of protecting the sheet.

See the attached file, row 23.

Excel 2010 :: Filter By Color Has Become Disabled?

Oct 26, 2012

I have a workbook in Excel2010 with 2 sheets. I have put in a conditional formatting in 27177 cells. After a lot of waiting it finally worked out and the cells that should turn RED, do show correctly. The strange thing is that my "filter by color" stays disabled. This applies both to the columns I've applied the conditional formatting to, as well as any other column that has a colored cell.

The second sheet in the file also have colored cells and there the option works perfectly fine. So it seems to have something to do with the particular sheet.

why the function got disables in the particular worksheet.
