Tip Messaging (pop-up Like Window Perhaps)Oct 30, 2008
I am using Excel 2003 and wish to make a tip message (pop-up like window perhaps) if a value of a particular cell is exceeded.
I am using Excel 2003 and wish to make a tip message (pop-up like window perhaps) if a value of a particular cell is exceeded.
I have a worksheet that contains 5-6 bar charts on it and I am trying to display additional data to the user whenever the mouse hovers over one of the bars.
I found a really good start at:
And it works perfectly whenever the chart is in its seperate 'Chart' tab, but I can't figure out how to make it work when the charts are in a worksheet instead.
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:
'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
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:
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.View 14 Replies View Related
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'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 3 worksheets in a workbook. How can I have the view go to A2 and View that on each worksheet? I do a Range("A2").Select But, it still shows the window on another column - row.View 2 Replies View Related
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?View 9 Replies View Related
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.
What ever I click I can't see any of the cells!
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
.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?
Is it possible to create a popup window that contains drawing objects?
I created a "form" with the objects, but I don't know how to use the form.
I want to have this image, or form, or whatever it is, to popup when the user clicks a cell. Is this possible without getting into programming?
Can it be hidden and then made visible when the cell is selected?
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.View 1 Replies View Related
I'm trying to find an ID from a new open Internet Explorer Window.
I know that the ID that I'm trying to search for is "rBeginMonth_BeginDate", but my code always says that it's empty.
The code below is partially of what I've done.
I have a project were i have to make a macro and place in a workbook such that as soon as i open that excel file
1. excel workbook is opened in New Excel window
2. Ribbon is hidden for this new window.
So when user closes this excel window there is no problem with other workbook ribbon, as there are open in different window
I have tried with code stated below it hides the ribbon but new excel window is not open
Private sub Workbook_open()
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.View 11 Replies View Related

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?

I'm trying to get the below code to save the workbook before the macro continues. I would like for the Save As browser window to be displayed so that the user can select a location to save in.
It would be great if it could maintains the existing name and file type.
The code I attempted below will save the file I just don't know where to!!
'Activates password message box
If UCase(InputBox("Enter Password 'This Action Cannot Be Undone' ")) "2222" Then Exit Sub
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.
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.View 2 Replies View Related

I do have code, but this thing (which appears on the Excel window, not the VBE window) doesn't seem to be connected to any of my code.
What is this, and what caused it to suddenly pop up on me in Excel?
Is there a way that I can make an excel sheet and save it in a way that when it's opened the person JUST sees the cells in a really simple window...
Not sure if I'm confusing people in how I explain this... but basically I don't want it to show the scroll bars, the A B C D etc and 1 2 3 4 etc, the tool bars... etc. JUST the specified cells in a sheet.
When I start Excel I get a Document Recovery Window that lists a file that was lost some time ago. I don't need the file and don't want the window appearing. If I click on the listed file, or right click and select "open", "save as", or "show repairs", the window disappears and I get a blank document.
I know I could write code that would automatically close the window when I start Excel, but there has to be a better way. I DO want the window to appear when there is really a file that needs to be recovered, but I don't want the listed file and don't want the window.
If a user decides to hit the esc key right in the middle of one of my procedures (bug free, etc), this will leave the file in an odd state. The file is set up so if the routine is re-run it cleans the file up and restores it to proper form.
But hitting esc exposes my code which is password protected when the file is idle. I employ a little trick that makes it hard to hack into my worksheet code, but one achilles heel is the esc button.
What I want is to have the file close if the routine is stopped in mid stream. This way the code is not exposed, and the user cannot monkey with the file.
I wanted to set the file up where i have a custom debug window that when a button is pressd the file closes OR when the user escapes out of the debug window the file closes as well.
I am having difficulty locating / composing a script that will set the Main Excel window size? Even better if I could find a way to set the size and position on screen..View 2 Replies View Related
I'm relatively new to macro's. I have an excel workbook that draws information from an exported file from a website. When I do this I get an IE window open which is of variable name depending on the information I picked on the website. I am trying to create a macro that will close this new window on importing but leave the original website window where it is. The name is variable but has the same format e.g. "http://batch+report+info....." with the later address changing depending on the info selected. I tried using a an " If name.like" formula but am too new to macro's to know how to implement it.View 3 Replies View Related
Is it possible to create a "floating" UserForm with VBA? That is, a form that is always on top af all the other windows. If not I think I will have to create an application in VB that imports data from the active Excel Spreadsheet, wich I have been lead to understand is fully possible. I really need this for the application that I am currently developing and I from what I have heard it is possible in VB.View 4 Replies View Related
I am trying to activate a window and the name of the window to be in a cell. lets say: Windows(file2.xls).Active
I want something like this: The name of the file is in B2 cell in tab Sheet1 in file file1.xls so the line will be like:
i do not know what function to use.
The bold line below does not work, Word remains the active window. The commented routine is a Chip Pearson API routine to do the same thing, it doesn't work either.
If infobox = vbOK Then
AppActivate "Microsoft Word"
print_dialog = wordapp.Application.Dialogs(wdDialogFilePrint).Show
If print_dialog = 0 Then
AppActivate "Microsoft Excel"
Just want to know if is possible control a popoup window through a VBScript Macro in excel? I don't know if I could click a button from a PopUp when it appears? I mean I cant go forward because a popup message appears and I dont know how take the control of it.
I mean how can the parent window take the control of the child window (popup window)
I have two wide screens, and I stretch excel over both of them to gain the most useable space. Sometimes I save a file while it's on the right screen. This causes problems for my boss, because she opens the file on her computer and it opens offscreen way to the right. I could have sworn there was a setting in excel to save or not save the workbook's window position, but now I can't find it.View 9 Replies View Related
I have a message box with multiple sections. I would like to display each
section on its own line.
This is the first time i am using this forum. I am having a doubt in the macro. I am using MS-Office 2007 version. In Excel 2007 when you go to "developer" tab, the first group is "code" under that when you click on "Macro". You will be able to see a button called "create". Can you tell for what purpose it is used? when it will be "active" because it is always in disabled state.View 2 Replies View Related
