VBA Automation - When To Use Display Alerts

Apr 18, 2012

Using VBA automation - set ObjXL as an Excel.Application
Lots of code and data transfer

3410 ObjXL.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:=strSaveAsFileName
3420 ObjXL.Visible = False
3430 ObjXL.Quit
Set Objxl= nothing

should the line be set : ObjXL.displayAlerts = True
- befor the objxl.Quit ?
- before the Objxl.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:= aname
how to close the ObjXL with out orphaning a process.

ObjXL.ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="Data1", RefersToR1C1Local:=ObjXL.Range("A5").CurrentRegion
Will this line of code create a 2nd instance of Excel?

Jul 15, 2009

I just finished a great macro and right at the end of deleting a sheet, I got a message box saying

"Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. To permanently delete the data, press Delete"

How can I eliminate this from popping up in the middle of code?

Excel 2010 :: Application Visible And Display Alerts Not Working

I am trying to hide the excel 2010 application, open a csv file on a network drive, show the excel application.

The problem is a "Downloading" progress indicator appears, during the workbook open event I assume.

Sub Macro1 ()
Application.Visible = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Workbooks.Open Filename:="S:LOGT5.CSV"
Application.Visible = True
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

I have seen the similar progress indicator during the "Save" event too. How to hide this?

Turn Off Alerts Without Using VBA?

Aug 5, 2013

Without using VBA can you suppress alerts in Excel?

Specifically when you are creating copies of many sheets in a workbook,

"A formula or sheet you want to move or copy contains the name "Month", which already exists on the destination sheet. Do you want to use this version of the name?"

The reason for turning the alerts off is that the answer is always yes and it appears too many time in this workbook.

Creating Alerts For Non-matches

Aug 5, 2009

Students choose different electives, upto a maximum of 20. In the example below, I have shown them with only four electives. Some choices require a pre-requisite subject to be chosen. In the example below, let us assume that you must select WXY101 in your choices if you want to include WXY102 as an option as well. Jane Doe fits this criteria, so there is no alert.

However, John Smith is trying to complete WXY102 without having chosen WXY101, and hence WXY102 appears in the alert column as a problem selection. Note that choosing WXY101 without choosing WXY102 is OK, as you can just complete a pre-requisite subject.

Formatting Alerts For Tests Coming Due

Jun 16, 2014

I'm trying to format a worksheet to show a one year due date with an alert 30 days out so that I can complete the task before the date due. I am using this for a preventative maintenance sheet for respiratory protection equipment that needs to be serviced annually. For instance; if I service a mask today the next service will be in one year. I'd like it to alert me 30 days out. If I could get that alert through outlook that would be fantastic.

Circumvent Overwrite Data Alerts

Apr 24, 2009

I've just written a bit of looping vba script that generates an overwrite alert (i.e. "Output range will overwrite existing data. Press OK to overwrite..."). This is fine and was purposely built into the script, but I want to be able to automatically ignore these alerts and loop through the script unhindered.

VBA Into IE Automation

Feb 20, 2010

You take an input, click a button. This will them create a small HTML table with a text input box and another button.

Sub VisitWebsite()
Dim ie As Object
Dim tcode As String
Dim sURL As String
sURL = http://sample.jsp
ie.navigate sURL
ie.Visible = True
tcode = "apples"

While ie.busy
Application.Wait Now() + TimeValue("00:00:03")

For Each ieForm In ie.document.forms
ieForm(1).Value = tcode
Set ieForm = Nothing
Exit For
The code ieForm(1).Value = tcode works. The code ieForm.submit also hits submit on the button.

The problem is I cannnot figure out how to access the 2nd button which is generated when you click the 1st button. I have tried every variation of ieForm(1).Value. There appears to be only 3 forms (0, 1, 2). When I try 3 or greater, I get an error.

When I use ieForm(2).Value = "something", the Retrieve button text actually changes name to "something".

I've attached a screen shot of the webpage. I can insert text into the top Track Code box, and click Retrieve.

I can't change the text in the Routing Position field, and I cannot click the "Set" button. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am still a beginner with VBA and it took me a while just to get it to work with the 1st input box.

Email Automation

Feb 11, 2010

I am trying to create a document that automatically sends an email whenever a field reaches a certain value. I am pulling the data from different worksheets onto a summary worksheet and using the data on the summary sheet as the point at which my code checks to see whether the value is below the minimum required. The summary sheet updates automatically whenever I change the data in one of the other sheets but the email will not send automatically when the summary sheet is updated. When I run the macro individually the email sends, however I need some way of triggering it so that it sends automatically upon the data in the field changing. Can anyone help me with this?

Here is an example of some of the code I am using:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Application.Intersect(Range("D3"), Target) Is Nothing Then
If IsNumeric(Target.Value) And Target.Value < 1 Then
End If
End If
If Not Application.Intersect(Range("E3"), Target) Is Nothing Then
If IsNumeric(Target.Value) And Target.Value < 1 Then
End If
End If
End Sub

Automation Error After Some Iterations?

Jun 11, 2014

Creating a spreadsheet to inventory cups each day. When a macro was invoked do the following:

-unprotect the worksheet

-cut/paste the completed sheet below the current

-bring in the values form the previous day's inventory

-set protection on new spreadsheet to lock the cells

-blank out old values

-reprotect the worksheet

Pretty straightforward and seems to work fine for a few iterations, then crashes with "Run-time error '-2147417848 (80010108)': Automation error. The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.".

As FYI, this code was mostly generated using a record macro session, so no variables involved.

Here is a screenshot of the spreadsheet as it sits now:


Here is the code:
Sub NewDay()
' NewDay Macro

' Create new day and copy cup count from previous day[code]....

Excel Automation - Timer?

Nov 5, 2009

I have a file that I update daily. It involves opening the file, going to a drop down menu and selecting 1 of the listed items and pressing a button to run the macro. Once the macro is complete, I then go back to the dropdown menu and select the next line item and press the same button to run the macro on this. I repeat this task 7times.

All the macro does is load a txt file to a third party system.

I am looking to see if it is possible to reduce the time it takes to do this task.

Calculate Sumsq Through VBA For Some Automation

Nov 20, 2012

I am trying to calculate the sumsq throught VBA for some automation.

The formula to be entered is - =SUMSQ(K1025:K1358)/(COUNT(K1025:K1358)-COUNTIF(B1025:B1358,"0"))

Another thing is that the row numbers are variables, and not fixed in automation. Let's call them R1 and R2. So I need the range to be R1 to R2 in all the instances in the above formula.

UserForm - Automation Error

Aug 5, 2008

I created a UserForm (userform1) and added a label to it which essentially just says: "Pick a Colour"...

The other UF controls are added on the fly using the below code...however when I try to add the event to each button I get the Automation Error but I don't really understand how / why... the events are actually added to the VB project ok...

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim NewButton As MSForms.CommandButton
Dim ws_i, line As Integer
Dim clr_str As String
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

I added a dummy routine for test purposes which is to be invoked on click of UF button control (I have tried placing this code in a standard module, within UF module etc to no avail):

Sub HIDE_WS(clr_id As Long)
MsgBox clr_id
End Sub

So to reiterate -- when I invoke the initialisation of the UF I get the following error:

Automation Error
The object invoked has disonnected from its clients

All events are added for each control.

If I remove the adding of the events I know the UF populates with the correct controls etc...

Pivot Charts Automation

Sep 16, 2009

pivot chart automation. I have a tab that contains thousands of rows and it grows larger on a weekly basis. On this tab is 169 peices of hardware I manage. Each week 1 row of data is added to all 169 peices of hardware. The data from the main tab contains metrics I need to chart. However, I am in need of a way of selecting a specific peice of hardware and having the pivot charts update automatically. There will be 26 Charts and going through each chart and selecting the proper hardware is going to take far too long.

Is there any way i can select just 1 peices of hardware from the data tab and have it populate all of these charts?

Solver Automation VBA Code

Dec 31, 2008

I've done quite a bit of research in the past week or so on the topic of solver automation using loops; while there are a few good posts scattered around, i haven't quite found the solution to my problem.

i'm trying to run the solver on a few like-sized datasets contained in one worksheet. i've set up a loop to properly reference the 4 datasets. the solver constraints are in one column on the same worksheet.

the macro runs with no errors, but it doesn't "solve." the parameter cells retain their original values.

i should mention that my macro ran perfectly before i consolidated the 4 separate solver calls into one loop. I got tired of having to type 4 different constraint changes in the code as i was optimizing the solver.

on a similar topic, does anyone know how to call a variable in the FormulaText declaration? If i wanted to step through a defined array of constraints, say [1,2,3], how do i get FormulaText:= variable to work?

Sub Macrosolver()

Dim iteration As Long
Dim i As Integer
i = 8 'start in row 8 at first dataset

Macro Automation Even When Formats Change

Jun 4, 2014

I receive sales data from my wholesalers every month and I continually have to format them to fit the structure of our in-house database. I wanted to design a macro that would automate this process. However, in some months, the files are recieved in a format that is a bit different from the wholesaler's usual format.

Is there such thing as an initial "litmus" test where I could try running the macro and if it doesn't fit the usual structure, there's an error code and I could do it by hand?

I have attached an example spreadsheet where the download dump is on "Data" sheet and the result of the advanced filter is on the "Result" page. I would like, if possible, for the result to come up every time the criteria is put in (they are all data validation lists).

Copy / Paste Automation Macro

Jun 10, 2013

I am trying to automate the following task

The excel spreadsheet I have has data in cells A2, B2, C2, and D2. There are many rows one below the other. The data is as below:

A2 = Orange
B2 = New York
C2= Ferrari
D2= Summer

I need to copy the contents of A2, B2, D2 and D2 in an orderly manner on the second work sheet of the same work book as below:

On Second work sheet, Data should be only in column A and B as following with fixed titles

Fruit = Orange
City = New York
Car = Ferrari
Season = Summer

I want to keep doing this for all the rows which have data in them. Fruit, City , Car and Season will be the constant titles.

I recorded a macro, but it does the copy paste thing only for the first row.

Script that continues the process as long as there is data in the sheet1
