Track Changes Disabled On Network Workbook

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?

VBA - Opening A Workbook On A Network
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 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".

Force Links To Reference Linked Workbook Network Folder
The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril

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?

Macro Disabled Depending On Cell Value
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.

Security Warning (Macros Have Been Disabled)
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.

Saving To A Network Drive
We have a form that is completed by our employees and emailed to a central group email address that up to 8 employees within our team can access. When one of our 8 team members open the file sent they need to add comments to it and then save it in a central directory on one of our network drives.

Now the problem I have is that we all have the network drive mapped to a different letter.

Is there a way that I can have a macro (see below for current macro that does not work) save to a network path and not a drive letter.

How Can I Identify A User Over A Network
I have written a function (with the help of the good folk on this wonderful message board) that is able to check whether a given spreadsheet is currently being used by someone at my work. There are potentially multiple users for the workbooks that my system needs to access. FYI, I work in a bank so we have a pretty good network.

The code for my function, as well as the TestOpen(-) function that it uses, is below.

Ideally, if a workbook my system needs is currently being used on someone else's computer (Case=1 in Select statement, then Err0) I would like to be able to have a userID returned to me so that I know who I need to call to shut the model.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Function Open_Selected_Drone__EXEC(fs, fileLocation, fileToOpen, testOnly)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
myName = ActiveWorkbook.Name

Application.StatusBar = "Checking availability of " & fileToOpen
iOpen = TestOpen(fileLocation & "" & fileToOpen)

Select Case iOpen

Case 0: ' the file has been found and is not in use
rv = "not in use"
If Not testOnly Then Workbooks.Open Filename:=fileLocation & fileToOpen, WriteResPassword:="j"

The old version of this message board used to have an "insert code" button. I cant see it anymore. Am I simply meant to paste code into this message box now?

Is File Open On Network
when I open a file, called "A", I want it to automatically open another file, which is shared on the network, called "B". I've tried using the "IsFileOpen" routine and a few other sets of code that I've found on the internet but none of them solve my problem.

If "B" isn't open on any computer and I open "A", there is no problem, and if "B" is already open on my computer when I open "A" again, there is no problem, but if "B" isn't open on my computer and is open on somebody else computer, "B" won't open on mine when I open "A", the code assumes that because "B" is open on someone elses computer, "B" is already open on mine.

Is File Open Over Network
I want to be able to check when workbook opens if a particular Excel file is open or not by having a true or false in a cell. This works fine if I have it open on same computer, but if I log on to another computer over a network and run same workbook it won't pick up if file open or not. I have tried various ways from this forum for file paths over network including eg. C:file or '\path on networkfile or N:pathlocfile etc. Nothing apears to work. If I check to see if file open from a different computer than the one the file is open on I receive standard message file already in use etc.

Install Network Printer Via VBA
I have a new workbook that needs to be printed to a specific printer regardless of who the user is. I am happy with the method used for doing this using the PrintOut function, but am trying to work out what to do in the event that the user does not have this printer installed. The logic, not in true VBA syntax, is as follows;

' Check Printer
If <This Printer> Is installed Then
Printout using <This Printer>
Install <This Printer>
Printout using <This Printer>

I found a useful post about ascertaining whether or not a printer is installed, but can't find anything about actually installing a printer via VBA.

Check If Connected To Network
I have created an application for users that requires the user be connected to the network. I wanted to do a check to see if they are connected, and if the user is not connected they would get a message box telling them that they need to be connected to the network, then the workbook would close. Below is the code I have, but when a user is not connected they do not get my messagebox, instead they get the excel error message "excel run-time error '52': bad file name or number", and the debugger line that gets highlighted is in the function DirExists that checks the length of the directory of the file path: Len(Dir(strpath))

Template Read Only On Network

I have used sharing on the Folder where the 2 workbooks are located so it accessable over a network. There is no problem when I run the code on a standalone machine.

Deleted Both Companies Cant Have Same Network IP Addresses

Sheet one has the company 1 and company 2 with various networks address and that need to be deleted based on overlaps.

Error Log On Network For Multiple Users
I am creating an error log as a text file for my application. Since it is being used by many different users, I decided to keep it logged in a specific folder (that is protected) on our network.

I have tested the code and it works, even if I have the log file open when I run the module, it still writes to the log file and saves (as long as I don't save the opened log file after the module runs)

What I am worried about is when 2 or more users are trying to write to the log file at the same time. I wanted to add something that checks if the file is open, and if it is, wait a second or two and then try to write to it again. Maybe try it a few times?

Below is my sample code.
Note that I am using the log creation in another module.

Sub datatopass()

LogInformation Worksheets("Email"). Range("L2").Value & "|" & _
Application.UserName & "|" & _
Worksheets("Email").Range("M2").Value & "|" & _
Worksheets("Email").Range("N2").Value & "|" & _
