I've created a worksheet that uses multiple print macros with defined margins. This works fine with the Epson printers I have, but a user has an HP Officejet Pro K550.
This printer has an option named "Minimize Margins". If this option is checked then you adjust the margins the way you want.
For some reason when this particular workbook is opened you have to manually go and check this option so that the margins can be manipulated. this is a problem b/c my macro prints several reports so it's impossible to set this option.
I then opened a different workbook and it accepted the default setting (option checked). For some reason the workbook I created doesn't.
We have just refreshed our entire printer fleet to Xerox printers and as part of the project we have selected all defaults to B&W and duplex.
On a multi sheet excel file, If we click print then choose entire workbook and then change the print options to colour, it prints the only first worksheet in colour, and all the others in mono. i have read that excel treats each worksheet separately and does not cascade the changes made made in the first worksheet even if all sheets have been selected.
How can I get them all to print in colour?
We can set up another printer and change the defauts to colour but we dont want to go down that road and have 2 printers installed for each model.
Is there any code out there can will/ can change the properties of the first worksheet and cascade this throughout the workbook.
We use XP and W7 workstations and office 2003, 2007 and 2010. By the end of the year all workstations will be W7 and Office 2010.
I have a button on a userform that will generate certain text in a combo box. The combobox then goes to a worksheet. If I select a second button, I want the first information on the worksheet to clear and accept the new information from the next button.
NOTE: I have it as a combobox so I can either select it from the combobox or click the button. When I select the information from the combobox, it does clear out everything automatically.
Here is my code:
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click() Worksheets("score").Range("B6").ClearContents ComboBox1.Text = ComboBox1.Text + "PASS" Worksheets("score").Range("b6") = Me.ComboBox1.Value TextBox2.SetFocus End Sub
What I think I am doing is clearing the cell, entering my text then going to the next text box, but when I click the second button (same code, text is "FAIL"), I then get "PASSFAIL" in cell B6.
I want it to clear out the previous entry and only use the new one, but it keeps all that I click even though I said to clear the contents.
I have an xls-workbook that is saved in OpenOffice. It has simple formulas that shows correctly in Excel. Excel doesn't solve them before "re-accepting" (like going to formula bar and pressing enter). No editing of formula is needed at all (unless you count "enabling edit-mode" and accepting the empty edit as editing).
I want "Print what" >> "Selection" (instead of Active Sheet) to be selected by default in the print dialog when I press Ctrl+P. How to do it?
See the image if you don't understand which dialog I'm referring to: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/872430/print_5.gif
My second question is actually answered in a very old thread. I want to know if there is an alternate way or if the answer in old thread is still valid. The question is "how to set default paper size?"
The answer given in the old thread (http://forums.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=28637) is by going to Control Panel and changing printer settings. Since, Excel often shows only "blank" (with a dropdown containing the various paper sizes) against "paper size",
I have a workbook of some 15 worksheets - however there is just one of the worksheets I want to disable the printing of it. So that when users select print whole document - all worksheets will print except for thus one worksheet
The worksheet tab is named "15.ADMIN WORKBOOK CONTROL ONLY"
I know I need to put some vba code into the code area of that worksheet
I tried this code but it didnt work
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean) Cancel = True End Sub
I have a spreadsheet that has values in the end column that read Addition, Deletion or No Change. I am trying to get the row cells in Column A to shade red, green or yellow depending on the value of the cells in Column I. I have tried the folllowing:
I chose the fill to be green for this but when I click OK nothing happens but I do not get any error messages.
Is there a way to reset the defaults for the text import wizard? I occasionally import a number of files in CSV format, but the wizard defaults to tabs as the means of separating the text. I would like to reset the default on the second page of the wizard to commas, not tabs.
I have this problem with pivot tables:when I write a formula relating to a cell in the pivot table I don't get the usual basic cell refs (e.g. B4/b5) but I get something like GETPIVOTDATA("Vehicle No",$A$3,"Model Desc",...... etc etc
and I cannot copy and paste this formula!
I would like to know if there is a shortcut to use basic Cell refs because it is very boring always type the cell details in manually when using data from a Pvt table
Some weeks ago I had to move from excel 2000 to excel 2003 and It seems incredible to me that moving to a more recent release of excel become a step behind....
This code is not accepting the values which is starting from strings like this
bearing 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID 19/128 IN LG, 2-3/64 IN OD, 1/2 IN THK, 5/64 IN ID steel 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID 19/128 IN LG, 2-3/64 IN OD, 1/2 IN THK, 5/64 IN ID spares 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID
We have a form that has a dropdown list of selections but many people forget choose the reasons. How can I make these required fields that HAVE to be filled in in order to print. These are internal forms, nothing on the web. I just need to find a way to make sure that there is a way to stop someone from printing if these 2 fields are not chosen.
I use a scanner that initiates a f2 command and trips my macro. I would like to use multiple scanners using a 8 port hub but I am having trouble with a scanner starting my macro and another scanner dumping data into my macro before the first one is finished. This is dropping scanned data into my macros. Is there a way to prevent the scan from accepting data until the macro has completed its cycle.
I would like to know if there is a way to print several different workbooks at once but keeping my printing format which I would like to be Landscape and Fit to one page. Reason is simple as I work in a office where staff is handed in several jobs to do everyday. They finish the jobs and log all the info on the database. I log on to database and put all their daily diaries and because it is all over the place I have to go in each file and set printing preferences which takes an hour in the morning and hour in the evening. I could do with some sort of automation where all diaries are automatically printed in Landscape and Fit on one page.
I have a report that is generated from a manufacturing process that looks like the example below. the report is 40 pages long when all the data is printed. i am looking for a way to only print this range if a dimension is "out of tolerance". if the dimension is within tolerance, there is always the "garbage" text of plus and minus. if every row is "within tolerance" in the range the cells in the OutTol column would all contain the "garbage" text but it will not always be identical. so, in summary, actual OutTol values = print and all "garbage" = not printed.
why my drop down list defaults to the middle of the list when first clicking on the arrow that opens the list? I created an alphabetical list of all US airports but when I open the list, it starts at "D" instead of "A" which is the top of the list.
I am automating a paper form that collects information from 7 other paper forms and then prints out the results. I have created an excel spreadsheet to do this but I am having problems getting the printed output to match the print preview.
I have inserted an image of the form into the sheet header and aligned the cells on the sheet so that the information is in the correct position when previewed in "print preview".
The problem is that, although this will print correctly on the machine I created it on, it is misaligned on any other machine I have tried.
I have inserted checkboxes in an excel worksheet to turn on/off certain data. They are working just fine. But I have set them all to not print (by unselecting the checkbox that says "print" in the format dialogue). SOME of the checkboxes don't print, but most of them do. I can't figure out why.
I have attached a sample sheet which is for invigilation of exams. In columns D, E & F are the initials of people invigilating at different times. What I want to able to do is to print personised sheets for each person where there initals are in bold and the box has a black border around it. This is very labour intensive if I do it manually as have to highlight one person, print, unhighlight and rehighlight the next person and so on. What I was wondering is could I use a macro to automate this process. So it has a list of all the initals and it searches through and highlights the person and prints it and then moves onto the next.
