when i put a file across a network, it should be shared among all the users, but it appears as read only file and the option of track changes in the tools function is disabled. However, when i open an excel file in a stand alone pc, and use the track changes option, i get the file as (shared) as the header. what is the significane or meaning of this word "shared" in a stand alone pc?
As above i have a macro which opens a workbook which is on a network drive. This works fine for my multiple users...however i have discovered that if they do not have the drived mapped with the same drive letter at the start...it will throw up an error advsing that the file does not exist. Is there any way to by pass this.
Ex - "TestFile.xls"
File is stored in "E:NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls"
However, some users have access to this file and it is mapped as E:, but some users have been mapped as F: The advisors who have been mapped as F: cannot access the file. Is the VBA/Macro smart enough to bypass the drive letter and just search the rest of the past...NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls".
I am unable to add which user made the change to the specific cell. The code used is:
Dim vOldVal 'Must be at top of module Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim bBold As Boolean If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub On Error Resume Next With Application . ScreenUpdating = False .EnableEvents = False End With If IsEmpty(vOldVal) Then vOldVal = "Empty Cell" bBold = Target.HasFormula With Sheet1 . Unprotect Password:="Secret" If .Range("A1") = vbNullString Then .Range("A1:E1") = Array("CELL CHANGED", "OLD VALUE", _ "NEW VALUE", "TIME OF CHANGE", " DATE OF CHANGE") End If..................................................
The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
Which version of excel allows you to do a Track Changes without switching to a shared workbook? I am awared the Excel 2002 version allows Track Changes on the conditioned that the workbook is switch to shared mode.
I'm trying to see if the same numbers exists in two different spreasheets on the same workbook. Both "asset tags" columns are sorted ascending. If the number appears on both table I would like my formula to add a "Y" (for yes) on the proper cell. Not sure if I should use Vlookup, sumproduct or sumif formula. Here is the main table where I want that "Y" to appear in Column D .....
I have a large worksheet that for some reason I canít share.
-It does not have any lists, that I know of, do not know how to see if there are any -It does have validation, but I have other workbooks with listed validation that are shareable -It is not protected -Does not have any named ranges -Is not read only -I have saved it as another file name and no luck there -I have copied the one sheet I really need into a separate file to try that it did not work,
I currently have a password secured excel file on my departs Q drive, which everyone can access unfortunately only 1 person can edit at a time. I tried to turn it into a workbook so we could all edit it at the same time but now some of the other users can't access the file at our other buildings throughout the county. This is for excel 2010. And I did select the share workbook, and allow multiple users to edit box. everything else is unchanged.
My team and I are attempting to track how much time we are spending in each Excel workbook we create (all workbooks are created from a single template). The problem is that we are often jumping back and forth between different workbooks throughout the day so manual entry methods are neither accurate or practical. Is there a way, with macros or formulas, to embed a time tracker in the template workbook that would only record active (when workbook is selected) time in the workbook?
I have a workbook with macro button to run some vba, if i want the button to disable when the user make copies of the workbook (date created is later than original wb saved time) what codes to add in the VBA?
what i assume is to add the time to a cell when the wb is saved, when the wb opens, it check for that cell if the same with the date created, if different, then disable the macro button.
Just discovered the drawing tools on my quick access tool bar are disabled. All were enabled and working fine just yesterday. I'm running 07 on xp. I've shut down and rebooted, no change. Need to know how this could have happened but mostly, how to enable.
I am creating a workbook and need the user to stay on a single page of the workbook until certain circumstances have been met, specifically, a macro has been activated, thus confirming that certain data is now in place. Is there a code of function that I can introduce into the workbook so that clicking on the other tabs of the other sheets will not allow the user to leave the page they are on until that circumstance is met?
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.
I was playing around with Macros on an excel file. I created a few and ran them. In the end, I didn't like the way they ran, so I deleted them all. However since I ran them in the excel file, every time I open the file it gives me a warning saying "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.
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:
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
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.
I accidently put the Application.Quit command in the wrong place. Now Excel closes immediately when the macro executes. I can get into Excel if I disable the macro, but then it won't let me edit the macro. Is there a way to edit my macro without executing it?
