VBA Causes Errors When Run In German Settings

Jul 10, 2014

I have developed a process design application in Excel using User Forms to input data. The data are placed on a sheet of a workbook with the majority of the calculations being done by cell-to-cell calculations so that users can view the formulas if they so desire. This application works well in English. We want to use the same application in our German office where it has not worked well.

In order to trouble shoot the problems, I can go to the Region and Language setting under Control Panel and set it to German (Germany). This converts the number format to a period for the thousands separator and a comma for the decimal. This seems to create a lot of problems for VBA that I have not been able to sort out.

To simplify the problem I have written a very simple program. It has one User Form with two text boxes for number input, an Enter command button and a Close command button. Sheet 1 has a command button that opens the User Form. In the User Form, I enter a number in both text boxes and click Enter. VBA code then enters the number from Text Box 1 in Cell A1 and the number from Text Box 2 in Cell A2. Cell A3 has an equation that calculates the sum of A1 and A2. All cells are formatted as General.

The workbook works as expected in English. When I set my PC to German (Germany) the application works as expected when I enter an integer in the text boxes. However, if I enter a decimal such as, in the German format, 10,5 and 5,5, the numbers entered into the spreadsheet are text (left justified) and the sum is zero. I have to enter 10.5 and 5.5 to get the numbers to enter as actual numbers and give the correct sum.

How to make VBA work with the German settings?

Macro To Delete Row As Per Settings

Mar 10, 2014

I have a large file of data and the data looks like this repetitively, however, there are also useless data. But I figure out that the repeat data looks the same compare to the useless data. I need to extract the data that I only need. Is there a way to set a macro to search for a String from the beginning of the excel file, when the string is found, it will keep the 2 rows above and 56 row below it, then loop.

Here is an example of it:


[Code] ....

The macro will start from A1 then go down till find STRING, then will keep 2 row above it which is A5+56 row below it which is A63.

Then continue at A64, then find STRING at A66 and do the same which is copy A64 (2 row above)+till A122 (which is 56 row below), then continue.

Since A123 to A155 does have any STRING, they will all be deleted..

Set Print Settings Per Worksheet

Mar 6, 2008

At my company we need to print our workbooks containing 3 to 24 worksheets. The first page should be printed on different paper than the other pages. From various forums I gathered that it's not possible to set the papertray using vba. Those forums suggest 3 things: 1. Windows Api functions (don't work at our company(security)), 2. SendKeys (don't work because of different printers, office versions and future-proofness) and 3.

Define printerdrivers per tray.

This last I did, so there are printerdrivers for tray3 and tray4.

With the following code I try to print the workbook:

Public Sub printSheets(strP1 As String, strP2 As String)
Dim curPrinter As String, firstPage As Worksheet, otherSheet As Worksheet, x As Integer
Set firstPage = Application. ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1)
curPrinter = Application.ActivePrinter

Application.ActivePrinter = strP1

The problem: The sheets are sent to the printers specified as strP1 and strP2, but the tray-settings from these printers are "overruled" by Excel; they are printed from the papertray that was the default of the printer when Excel was started.

Also, using the default printer dialog from Excel has the same problem; when the (windows-)default printer is Tray3 then all the pages come from there, even when printer Tray4 is selected as the printer. In Word or Acrobat etc the prints come from the right tray.

Copying Print Settings From One Worksheet To Another

Aug 12, 2009

I am trying to copy the print settings(including the headers and footers) for one excel worksheet to another. I have found the following hint on internet and it works fine for copying the print setting(including the head/foot) but it is also grouping the worksheets. Click on the tab of the worksheet you want to copy. Then hold down the Shift or Ctrl key and click on the tab of the worksheet where you want the settings and click on File, Page Setup and OK. How can I just copy the print setting without grouping the worksheets?

Saving Default Settings In Excel

Aug 20, 2013

I am working on lots of excels, with data queries from sql and pivot tables. Is there a way to set defaults to some settings in excel (not in this specific file).

To be more specific:

1. Import data from SQL: Refresh on opening, save password
2. Formatting of number to have two digits and a comma separator
3. Pivot table: when adding to values sum instead of count, refresh when opening the file

Using VBA To Save And Redo Autofiltering Settings

Aug 9, 2007

I am trying to figure out how to save a worksheet's autofiltering settings and be able to re-create those settings.

I would start off with a spreadsheet with a few Autofilters on. I would like to make a macro that will record the initial Autofilter settings, then the macro would do a bunch of stuff that would need to 'Show All'. After these actions take place, I would like to be able to return to the initial Autofilter settings. I'm not even sure which VBA command should be used for this sort of thing.

Save Settings Wizard For New Computer

Jul 25, 2008

I was reinstalling office on a laptop where the hard drive had been replaced. I used the 'save settings, wizard on my desktop and put in the new settings when I reinstalled Office.

This almost worked, but not quite.

Word and PowerPoint seem to be fine but when I reopened Excel I got a number of messages saying that objects could not be loaded because they were not on the machine. Some of this was because Excel was trying to reference add-ins that needed to be reinstalled. I have done that, and there are now fewer messages - but there are still two and I can't get rid of them. One looks for 'objects' the other a single 'object'. There seems no way of finding out what the objects are in question, and what it that Excel is stumbling over. Can I do anything other than abandoning my previous settings and starting again, or else living with having to click twice every time I start excel to get rid of the messages?

I have tried uninstalling Excel and reinstalling but this doesn't help. Perhaps registry changes are the problem...and I hate the registry.

Protect Worksheets & Set View Settings

Oct 18, 2006

I have a battery sizing workbook, which has various tables and active cell VBA routines, that enable the user to input a number and then select a cell from the table presented on the front worksheet. This will then display the solution including other data. I have now been requested to share the workbook and all I seem to do is lock it up and therefore stop and calculations. Therefore your assistance is required in two area's:-

1. How to protect the workbook and allow the user to select a cell on the front worksheet, without all the all the VBA routines appearing to grind to a halt! I can lock an hide all the subsequent worksheets without freezing the front worksheet.
2. I can hide all the toolbars, row and column headings under my Tools/Options which will display the worksheet neatly...... Therefore can I some how instruct the users Excel to turn these off when loading?

.pip Files - Retaining Personal Settings

Mar 30, 2007

I am shortly to receive my new work laptop, but am aware that the new install of Excel (2003 v11, SP2) will naturally be without my custom 'cosmetic' settings.

By this, I mean that my choices of which toolbars are available, the order in which verious icons on the toolbars appear, the text tags under each icon, and of course my own user-defined icons (used to run my own macros).

I have some experience with .pip files and understand that these files are supposed to retain all your 'cosmetic' settings. But I've never been that sure a) how to use them b) if one can edit them directly c) whether copying them from my current computer to my new one will mean my settings are loaded etc. etc.

So, I wondered if anyone out there could give me some guidance on how I could successfully migrate my own 'cosmetic' preferences to my new install of Excel.

Reset Default Printer Settings In Vba

Jun 14, 2007

We have printer mailboxes setup for all of the employees and sometimes the print settings get saved in the excel files. This means that when another employee uses the file their prints get sent to the wrong mailbox. We have hundreds of files like this and it causes all kinds of problems with prints going to wrong mailboxes!
Obviously their default print settings are all set to their own mailboxes.

Is there some way, using vba, to get an excel file to go back to using the user's default printer settings instead of the ones saved in it's file? (or get it to remove the printer settings saved in it's file). That way I could just make an application level open event to fix the problem! Either that or some way, in vba, of changing a user's storage box number for a specific printer.

Macro To Change Security Settings

Aug 6, 2008

Is there anyway to change the security settings in Excel 2007 using VB macros? I have tried to record the macro as I change the settings but nothings is recorded.
Basically I have two workbooks, and I want to run one of the macros within workbook 1 from workbook 2. This is straight forward, however why I try to run it, excel says that the macros are disabled in the other workbook, but I know they are not, they are all enabled (bottom option)

I was hoping to find some way of fooling Excel into thinking the macros were enabled by changing the security settings (actually keeping them the same, but making excel think that i've changed them) before I try to the macro from the other sheet. I don't know if i've explained myself very well here, I hope I have, if not let me know and i'll try to go into more detail.
