how to use excel 4 macros. I do not even know where to put them. I have inherited some spreadsheets that have both Xcel 4 Macros and vba macros in them. (Well, I get a warning that I cannot switch them off when I disable macros on opening a workbook). I cannot even find the offending version 4 macros so that I can re-code them in VBA.
I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.
I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.
I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.
No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?
Is there a way to hide a macro from the list where you choose which to run, but not in the VBA editor? The userbox I just created calls upon 2 different macros, and has a macro to bring up the userbox. I need a way to hide the macros in Module3 from selection, but keep the macros in Module4 available to choose to run.
I have two macros. Macros 1 opens another excel file, counts the number of rows it has, inserts that number of rows into the master file and then copies the data over. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)... For k = 1 To numrows Selection.EntireRow.Insert Next k
Macros 2 'cleans' the appended data by systematically going through each row, checking if certain cells have data, and if not deletes the rows. Key code as follows (x3 for 3 worksheets)...
For l = lastrow To 12 Step -1 If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("B" & l & ":C" & l)) = 0 Then Rows(l & ":" & l).Select Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp edelrows = edelrows + 1 End If Next l
Here's the weirdness. macros 1 runs fairly quick the first time out (few seconds). Macros 2 takes about 2 minutes to run (which I'm fine with). However, when I run macros 1 AFTER running Macros 2, Macros 1 goes from taking a few seconds to a few minutes.
I am currently volunteering for a small organisation. I have spent the last week designing a userform to be used by other staff members in their office. However, when I asked the manager 'Do you have Microsoft Office?', I got a very firm and definite 'yes' in response.
It turns out they are using LibreOffice, which is a free alternative. I have also tried to get my userform to work with Open Office - but cannot seem to get either to work.
I have changed the settings in both suites of software to 'Load/Save Basic Code' and enabled macros to run via the security options.
My userform is not that complex. I have limited knowledge of VBA and zero experience using Basic, so have come up stuck.
i need to develop a macro, which will change the color of the cell according to the value of the cell.
for example if a specific cell in the matrix has a negative value then the macro should change the color of the cell to blue. if its value is positive then the macro should change the color of the respective cell to red.
I've created an Add-in (.xlam file) in Excel 2007 and installed and activated it (it shows up under "Active Application Add-ins" on the Add-in menu for new workbooks). I can see the macros and code when I go to the VBA editor, but the macros don't show up in the regular macro list.
I know that I can write code for the new workbook that will reference the Add-in code, but I want other users to be able to install the add-in and run the macros in it right away without any knowledge of VBA. Is there a way to make this possible?
I have created a excel spread sheet to be set up like a schedule, including multiple macros through the sheet, when I started it put the macros into "Module 1", now if I wanted to use this same worksheet and copy it and create multiple sheets in one file via the tabs does it make a difference where the macros reside? if it remains in "Module 1" it will only be in one spot will this create problems later on or should the each reside in the sheet objects.
how do I use a macro across a spreadsheet?I can record a macro OK,but when I try to use it again on the same spreadsheet all I get is the macro calculating using the same data as when I recorded it.I have several groups of data across one spreadsheet and I want to use the same macro over the entire sheet.How do I do this?
I have a spreadsheet which I used in a previous job, which was set up by our old IT Department. Basically, it allows me to save information onto it, which I can then retrieve, (in any conditions/search fields i.e. in a date range etc) but the problem is; when I try to use it on my laptop, I look at the editor used for macros, I can see that the spreadsheet is linked to the servers of my old company. Therefore, I cannot use it myself
I do not know a lot about macros etc. but I can send a copy of the spreadsheet to anybody who is willing to help!
I think it is just a case of changing the macros/strings of where to draw and save information to/from, but I don;t know.
I probably have a odd request, but then I think I'm just different ?
I have an Excel Workbook with Col. A approximately 1/8" wide. The formatting of this col is that the cells are set to have the typing fit into the cell, therefore it becomes so small that no one can read it. Just what I wanted. If the user needs to read what's in the cell, they can click on the cell and read it in the formula bar.
Col. B is approximately 2" wide
1st, the user enters the Path and File name, with extension, into cell A34(example).
2nd, the user types in a File Name that they will best understand into cell B34.
The Workbook is now saved.
When the user wants to open that file, they click on the Name . . . Col B34 - Easily recognized by the user.
They then click either the Button that say's "Open Excel File" -or- "Open Word File.
The macro automatically moves the selection over to column A, then the file is opened.
Now what I need
I want to use just 1 button and I will name it "OPEN"
The 2 below macros work excellant and I still need the functionality of each. What I want is that 1st it trys to see if it is an excel file and if so, opens the file and stops.
If the macro determines that it is not an Excel file, the macro then goes to the Word macro and determines if it really is a Word file and if so, opens the file and stops.
NOTE: I want to point out that I still need all the checking etc that the 2 macros currently do.
Ive opened some files here in this forum that when you just click a button, macros will run. But when you view the macros, there's none. How can i do this? Some kind of an executable one. I have like 8 macros.
I have 5 macros that update/gather info from the net, and instead of running each of these individually, i would like to be able to create 1 super-macro that runs them all. How would i go about doing this?.. say they're called M1, M2.. M5..
I have 14 ranges like this on the same spreadsheet and would like to print all of them based on the result in the target cells for the range of each to print. I currently have a macro button to print each range as you can see. Is it possible to connect these? What I have tried is cutting the End Sub and then the Dim r As Long but get errors.
I'm trying to teach myself VBA code and macros, and I can't work out where the code should go. Do I double click on the worksheet, and put the macro code there, or do I have to create a 'module' and put the code there? I have tried to find online tutorials but I really need a 'for idiots' guide.
I recently reformatted my hard drive. When I re-installed Office 2007, I was unable to run a Workbook that has a Macro in it. First, I went to Add-ins and added the Solveradd-in. When I opened the workbook, I enabled Macros. However, all I get is a maessage saying that the MVB did not compile. I know there are some things you have to do to solve this, but I cannot remember the procedure I went thru 2 years ago to get this to work. Does anyone know what steps I must take?
I have the below two codes in my worksheet, the first one is run using a button and the second one is an automatic macro to enter fixed dates. There seems to be a conflict, as each time I use the button to add a row, I get an error, and when I go to debug it highlights this row in the second macro --> If Target.Value = "" Then. Is there a solution? I can't see why there is an error, as both are separate codes?
I have a scoresheet with 60 contestants. Each contestant takes up 7 rows, the first six of which are hidden to start with and I have put macros in the adjoining column so that when they are clicked, the full 7 rows open up and the table of scores can be entered, When entry is complete for that contestant, a further macro when clicked will close up the 6 rows, leaving just the main line (line 14) with the No, Name, “OPEN” macro and other Totals in adjoining columns.
The sheet works fine, but as many people will use this programme, I need to protect the sheets against mistaken entries etc., and as soon as I protect it, the macros wont work and throw up a “unable to set the property of a hidden range class, run time error 1004. I don’t want to leave the sheet unprotected, can anyone advise me where I am going wrong.
I am also trying to find a way to validate “time taken” entries so that they can only be input as minutes and seconds in the format of 09.56, within a range of 00.01 – 10.00. Not having any success with this as it keeps converting the data into something like a date.
I have two macros and I would like to assign them both to one button. How to make a connection between these two codes in VBA? the macro should first sort the columns: A and B and then compare them. Here are two codes that need to be connected:
