VBA To Automatically Answer Pop Up On Open.

I have a few 2007 workbooks that are set up to track and compare individual budgets over time. The majority of the cells are referencing workbooks that have yet to be created.

On opening these workbooks the users are confronted with an informational window informing them that "This workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated", to which they are instructed to choose "Continue". Is there code I can add to these workbooks that would automatically choose "Continue" once a user enables the security warning for Automatic updates of links? I believe this would be the same as an On Open event.

Automatically Answer YES To Alert
My macro cuts and pastes a section of one sheet over the top of each remaining sheet in the workbook. It pauses before each paste and presents a message box (relating to copying over a named range) requiring the user to manually click on "Yes" in response to the question before continuing on. How can I modify my macro so that it finishes without requiring the user to click on "yes" for each sheet. In other words, how do I get the macro to automatically answer "Yes" to the message box ??

How Can I Skip Or Automatically Answer Of Message?
I have a workbook that contains a macro that when executed creates a copy (duplicate) of one its sheets and places it in itself (the same workbook). The macro then prints the newly created sheet. After printing, the macro then erases the newly created sheet so that it is no longer a part of the workbook. My problem is that I get the Excel message "Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. To permanently delete the data, press Delete". I would like add to my macro so that 1) the message is skipped or 2) the macro answers the message box (with Delete) so that no user input is required. I would like it if the user did not have to respond to this message.

Conditional Format (vba Loop Is The Answer)
i have 3 columns and hundreds of rows.... i first applied conditional format to the first row (A1, B1, C1) only. no problems so far as A1 has value '0' which is minimum and B1 is the highest value '200' and C1 is variable value between 200' and 0'. Im using icon sets in this one.... now i want the below rows to have the same conditional format.... how do i do that because when i select them all rows and columns and try to apply conditioanl formatting the outcome is not the same as i got previously in the first somehow combines all the values rather working only on the individual row. i hope u get wat im tryin to say....

i come across a solution in my mind to give a loop in vba to do the conditional formatting each row seperately untill empty cell of column no. 4.... but doing this will obviously eat lot of memory in excel cause of each row will have a seperate conditional format.....

Created A Pop Up Calendar Using VBA
I have created a pop up calendar using VBA with the help of VBA Tips at and it works very well. However it has the default date of 12 March, In the tutorial that i used there was some code to use todays date if the cell (in which i was going to put a date) is empty. Which is as follows

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
If IsDate(ActiveCell.Value) Then
Calendar1.Value = DateValue(ActiveCell.Value)
Calendar1.Value = Date
End If
End Sub

yet when the calendar does pop up, the date remains at 12 March (the calendar in the visual basic editor reflects the date correctly). I've tried to change numerous amounts of properties, without success

Automatically Open New Workbook After 1st Workbook Open 4 Seconds
I have a presentation that I open from a short-cut. After the "Welcome Page" is opened, I want to open a second workbook in a new instance of Excel after 4 seconds.

I think that I can open the new instance of excel, but I don't know how to activate the macro after 4 seconds.

I'm sure there is a function someplace for this that can be used in a macro.

Then, after the second Workbook is opened, I want the Welcome Page "Workbook" closed, leaving the second Worbook open.

Files Open Automatically
The background is that I only use macros for a few limited files to save me some time spent on monotonous clicking. Well, yesterday I made three little macros that clear the info in three weekly files and save each with a new date (in preparation for me adding the new info). When I left yesterday, the macros worked as intended. I come in to work this morning, and each of those files now open automatically whenever I open any other file in Excel (just for the first one, nothing happens if I open a second).

Automatically Open Comment Box When Data Is Entered.
I have a spreadsheet where we calculate lost time of machinery and how much money is lost. Every day someone enters the hours that the machines were down and then enters comment in that cell stating what happened or what the resolve was. So for example Machine A runs 24 hours a day, but 12-19-08 it had mechanical issues and was down for 2 hours, so the entrant will enter 22 in that cell, then have to right click back in that cell, go to insert comment and enter "need to change belts." Then if he finds out later that they were down another two hours he would have to change the hours, right click in the cell and edit comment. What we have been coming across is that after awhile he just enters the hours and not the comment. Besides firing a lazy operator I would like to make it more user friendly and ensure that the data entry person is entering the comment.

I would like after the hours are entered in the cell for the comment box to automatically open. I figured there has to be a formula to do it, but i am not at an advanced level. Can you help me?

Automatically Open, Copy, And Close Multiple Workbooks

example: DIST_91124_GROWTH_PRODUCT XXX _07072006.xls The 07072006 is the week ending date and will change. Each of the 77 files has a different DIST_number.

Is there a way to automate this process, it takes me about 4 hours to do it manually.

Using VBA To Delete Rows Automatically
What I need VBA to do is scan the data in a certain column (in this case column I entitled "Type") and if it picks up a certain letter (either a "C" "D" or "K") in a range starting from row 2 then Delete the whole row and condense them so I am only left with the data that corresponds to letters "E" and "R"...

Does there exist a macro that can accomplish this for me; the alternative doesn't even bare thinking about as the range can be anything up to row 6k

I have tried looking on the Net and have seen example of similiar macros, alas I'm completely new to this and cannot adapt it to my needs.

VBA Code Not Running Automatically
I have written some code intended to automatically clear a cell when data appears in it from an external source. In one spreadsheet, it seems to work exactly as expected, ie when the cell is polulated, it immediately clears the contents. In another spreadsheet, with exactly the same code, it will not automatically clear. If I put it in debug mode and step through it line by line, then it does do as expected but otherwise it won't.

Closing A Workbook That Is Open Via VBA
Well I seem to be having an issue in a form i created. What happens is that when the user clicks a button it saves a worksheet of workbook as its own file, problem is that it will actually open the new worksheet as a workbook when I really just want it to save without opening a new instance. Here is the code

Dim IntWirefilename As String
IntWirefilename = "International Wires Database"
Worksheets("Intwires").SaveAs FileName:="File Path" & IntWirefilename & (".xls")
Workbooks("File PathInternational Wires Database.xls").Close
I think the problem lies in the last line or it could be from the select and copy part.

I do not want it to open a new file after it saves it. Also can anyone help create a part that will bypass the overwrite existing file thing so that this file will just continuously save as the same file name rather than prompting the user constantly to Overwrite the file.

VBA On Open/Close Conumdrum
I'm creating a template that will be opened by users and saved to a new name based on info provided by the user. I have macros triggered when opening and closing the workbook. The Before Closing sub does some data transfer between workseets. I'm running into a problem with the Open sub, however. I wanted to give the user a chance to abort the opening, giving a dialog that allows canceling. I wanted to just close the workbook.

However, if I include an Active.Workbook.Close line in the Open sub, it of course triggers the Before Close sub, but it leaves the On Open sub hanging. The workbook closes, but the next time I open it, the dialog in the Open sub doesn't come up. Close again, and it works ok or quit Excel between openings and it is ok. If I let the Open macro complete, bypassing the remainder of the macro if the user indcates canceling, how to I trigger closing within VBA? If the Open macro completes without an Activeworkbook.close statement things will just sit there until the user initiates closing.

Is there a way to terminate the Open sub from within the Before Closing sub if I create a flag to indicate closing started during the open sub or some other way around this problem?

VBA Code To Automatically Update Using A Vlookup
I'm trying to write a VBA code to automatically update using a vlookup but I seem to be running into trouble, partically with the lookup value part of my vlookup. I basically have a range of dates in column B and want the values to appear in column C. Yes, I know I just type the forumla in column C and drag it down, but I really need to do it in VBA, as I want this to update when additional dates are added.

This is what I have thus far. The code keeps looping at i = i +1 and doesn't stop unless interuppted.

Sub update()
Dim i As Integer, L() As Range, s As Integer, V As Double
s = Range("D:D").Select
On Error Resume Next
While s ""
i = i + 1
ReDim Preserve L(i To 1)
L(i) = s
If i = 0 Then
MsgBox "No dates found"
End If
Exit Sub

For i = 1 To UBound(L)
V = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(s, Range("Inputs"), 2, 0)
Next i
