Print Preview Code
I have some code that Im trying to get to look at the sheets in my workbook and then based on if there is data in a cell and/or cells then select that sheet. Heres what I got so far thats not working. I get an error of Next without for.
Page Setup/Print Preview Vba
I am testing some code to have my sheets print consistently on different computers. I have
.CenterHorizontally = True

.FitToPagesWide = 1
but it still previews at more than 1 page wide. Any suggestions?
VBA Print Preview And Control Toolbox Tools
I have a spreadsheet with check boxes and a combo box that are set to display in print preview as well as print. I have set up a Print Preview button on this spreadsheet, as well. When you click the Print Preview button and then click close on the preview window and return to the spreadsheet, the control toolbox tools appear out of place and are greatly magnified. Scrolling the screen down and then back makes them appear correctly once again.
I have seen this on this spreadsheet on three different computers. Does anyone have a clue what is going on?
Note, clicking the print preview button on the standard toolbar does not provide the same artifact. It works correctly.
Or for the cheap fix, what is the VB script to move the cursor to a different cell and then return back?
Vista Preview Getting Error: Can Not Find "Print Preview.htm"
It takes a specific sheet & range, uses publish object to create a HTML version of this sheet then launches the IE browser to display this to the user.
Under Windows XP, Excel 2003 & Excel 2007 this works OK. Under Vista & Excel 2007, the HTML preview file is not getting written - I get an error when IE browser tries to display this file. Error: Can not find "Print Preview.htm"
Anyone run into this on Vista? Is this a permissions issue with writing the html file? Not sure why this exact same code works under XP and not Vista.
Crash On Print Preview
This file contains the printing options of a larger userform. But I am having problems with the print preview crashing.
I'd click one of the printing options on the userform, this would bring up the print preview of that sheet.
And when I try to "test" its stability by going crazy on the view next/ previous page on preview, it'd crash. This is especially when I've got the screenupdating set to false.
Just wondering if anyone else can varify the crash/ suggest what maybe its cause?
Print Preview Via UserForm
Is it possible to have a (print)preview shown in a textbox in a userform?
A layout has been made in a worksheet and content is added to some cells through Userforms (textboxes and comboxes).
1 Userform contains a big textbox and a "SEND"-button.
What I would like is to have a preview of the worksheet inside that textbox before they click send.
During this whole proces, the Excel -Worksheet is not visible (to prevent changes being made to the program)!
Print Preview The Page
I set up a passworded spreadsheet and saved it to my documents folder. I then copied it across to a network area I use to link to a company I work with. The file opens ok on the password but the page is completely white and I can see nothing at all! When I print preview the page I can see all my information but this doesn't help when I need to update it.
Not only that, the whole lot of excel spreadsheets I have both on my documents and the network area are doing the same thing! I've no idea how it's happened or what to do to retrieve the page view.
Print Preview Lines..
How do I turn them off? I go to print preview, then leave, and I have ugly lines all over the place showing where the end of the page is. My entire team can't figure it out. where I can turn this option on/off?
Print Preview Macro
1. Uses PrintPreview to view the results centered horiztonally on the page with the worksheet name at the center top of the printout and my name in the lower-right corner of the printout.
2. Closes PrintPreview. Everything is fine, except the macro will NOT close PrintPreview! I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = ""
.LeftHeader = ""
.CenterHeader = "&F"
.RightHeader = ""
.LeftFooter = ""
.CenterFooter = ""
.RightFooter = "Jennifer Large"
.LeftMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.75)
.RightMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.75)
.TopMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(1)
.BottomMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(1)
.HeaderMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.5).........................
Checkbox Locations Shifts In Print Preview
I have checkboxes (from the control toolbox) in a spreadsheet next to text. When I am in the normal view everything is where it is supposed to be. But when I do a print preview the checkbox shifts and comes on top of the text that was at the left of the checkbox.
This form has to be presentable both on paper and electronically. So both views are important.
Print Preview Display Of Range Very Slow
I have only one macro created in my excel workbook which is printing rows between two rows that their references are given.
To print-preview the results only takes 2 minutes, although it is only one page because I don't have much data in the spreadsheet yet. Also, to print it takes another minute.
How can the macro run and display results in less time?
Acrobat PDF Print Preview Not WYSIWYG
I have a spreadsheet which needs to be scaled down when printing (to fit 1 page wide by x tall), everything looks good in the print preview, but when PDFing, some of the columns don't seem to wrap properly and some of the words on the right side blend into the next column.
After playing around with it, if I set the column to autofit it slightly expands the column width and works correctly. Unfortunately, this will make the text too small to read by the time it is scaled down for PDFing so I have left the columns as they were.
I had a feeling that this difference between what was on screen and the end result could be due to the "printer" settings. So, because the default printer was not Acrobat, I changed the printer to Acrobat before attempting to print preview and print again. Yippee, it worked.
Selecting Sheets Meeting A Criteria For Print Preview
I have a print userform where I let the user print a summary package of sheets. I am trying to allow the user to see a print preview of certain sheets. The first one is always the "Bid Summary" sheet (sheet 2). The rest are a dynamic number of sheets with numeric names starting at 1. Now I need a easy way for me to allow the user to see a print preview of the Bid Summary, and then all the sheets right afterwards. I cant use sheets("1","2",...).select because it wont select a ever changing number of sheets. Really it is a problem of selecting a varied number of sheets in VB.
File Close Vba Code
The code below works perfectly when run from a macro button on a worksheet or when initiated using the VBA run option in the VBA editor but it does not run when run from a command button on a userform. The code is
Dim bCancel As Boolean
Do Until bCancel = True
bCancel = Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs).Show
If bCancel = False Then MsgBox "Sorry, cannot Cancel", vbCritical
When I run the code from a command button on my userform the error message I get is: 'Run-Time error 1004 Document not saved' and the line of code that it continually gets stuck on is: bCancel = Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs).Show

Print VBA Code In Colour
I have a really simple question - am tryingto print my VBA code, but want to print it as it appears in the VBA window, in colour (i.e. green comments, blue operations, etc). Is there a way to set it so the code prints in colour?
VBA Code To Print To Specfic Printer
I have a macro that prints out several worksheets. My problem is that I want to print these worksheets to a specific color printer. There are many different users and most of them will have a black-and-white printer setup as their default. I want to be able to print using the ip address of the color printer.
I have tried setting the active printer using:
Application.ActivePrinter = "\WP01022.214.171.124"
with little luck... This seems like such a simple thing! I have done a lot of research and can't find a good solution although I have seen the question raised several times!
Ozgrid has been a great source of information and solutions in the past. Please help again!
Update Print Header And Footer With VBA Code
I am trying to link what is in the header and footer with information contained in certain Cells. (I eventually want to have a user form to help input the information, but one thing at a time.)
How do I go about getting the following information into code so that I can update the enclosed code?
Left Header: Client Name contained in Sheet: "Table of Contents" B:1
VBA Code For Printing Variable Print Ranges
I am trying to write VBA code that will print a print range that is presented in cell F3 on a "Reports" worksheet. The content of F3 will change depending on how many reports the user selects to print. For example, he could select one, two, three reports etc - up to twelve. The cell ranges of each report are named (e.g. Report1, Report2 etc) so that if the user selects to print Reports 1 and 2, the contents of cell F3 are "Report1,Report2". If I replace WhatToPrint with "Report1,Report2" the print macro works.
Dim WhatToPrint As String
WhatToPrint = Sheets("Reports").Cells(3, 6).Value
'sets the variable to equal the contents of cell D3 which contains the formula
'summarising the print ranges I want to print
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = WhatToPrint
' pastes the variable in cell F3 - just to check that it looks like I want it to
Sheets("Reports").PageSetup.PrintArea = WhatToPrint
'uses the variable to set print area - this is where it fails!
'if you replace the variable with the contents of cell F3 the macro will work
Auto Close After Print
I have a spreadsheet and I would like for it to automatically close after printing.
Long version: The sheet is set up with several fields that can be changed by the user, and the date/time are automatically entered upon opening the sheet. I want to ensure that all fields are reset, and the date/time are correctly updated, every time that the user uses the spreadsheet. The last thing the user will do when finished entering his information will be to print the form, so I figure this would be a good time to make the form close (if this is possible).
I have already entered a code to prevent the query "do you want to save changes" before closing. So when they open the spreadsheet it will always contain the same starting information.
Open, Print And Close
When i open an excel file, i need it to print 3 copies and then close itself without saving. This is because i have a file that must have 3 copies printed everyday. I know its lazy =) but i'm sure it will be very useful and i have seen it on a file before however i cannot successfully replicate it.
Vb Code To Set Print Area And Print Out
with creating vb code that will select certain rows in a spreadsheet, set the print area to those rows and print them out, and then reset the print area back to default.
The data is all on one sheet, but is split into 5 different areas, each below the next, with the column headers at the top of each.
and so on. At the press of a button it'll set the print area to the first section and print (the section includes the headers as well as the data). Then at the press of another button it'll set the print area to the next section. There could be any amount of rows of data in each section so it needs to cope with that.

VB Code To Close File
I have a template where users provide input in specified fields. Upon completion, pressing a macro button emails the file to administrator.

Code To Close Down A Specific File
I have a piece code that allows the user to pick a file from a folder on my C:. It then copies a range of data into the original workbook that the macro was run. I would like to close the other file down automatically which shouldn't be that hard but I can't work out how to do it.
Close Text File With Code
I am trying to inch my way forward to writing a macro that will read in an external CSV file into a sheet (my next task will be to spread the date between multiple sheets based on regions). My first attempt at code is the following
Dim strLine As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim filename As String
Dim ans As String
filename = "C:Documents and SettingsMichaelMina dokumentMina datakällorD123905.csv"
Open filename For Input As #1
i = 1
While Not EOF(1) And i < 10
Line Input #1, sLine
ans = MsgBox(sLine, vbOK, "hello there")
i = i + 1
' Close filename
A couple of problems arise. When I debug the code, if I remove the comment on the close filename, the debugger complains with error 13 (incompatible types). If I comment the line and try and run the code twice in a row, I get a complaint about error 55 - file already open. I'm guessing that the close filename is the correct syntax - if it isn't, what should it be??
How To Save And Close An Excel Using Access VB Code
I have two procedures in two different access forms. First procedure executes fine. It ends up with creating a Table1 by importing the data successfully from the Excel file. But after that later when I call procedure 2, it throws the below error when it is trying to import the data in to Table2. I think the Excel "Test.xls" did not save properly and close in the Procedure 1. I could see some Excel thread running in the Task Manager. How can I handle this. Please advice. Your expertise help will be truly appreciated. I am absolutely new to this VB-Access code world.
Error: "'MySheet2$'is not a valid name. Make sure that it does not include invalid characters or punctuation and that it is not too long." ....
Workbooks.Close Function Stops Code
We're using XP Pro using Excel 07
The background is there are about 40 people who use a Excel based program that contains a pivot and a bunch of other tools that they use on a regular basis, this set of tools has a version number. In this excel workbook, it has a function that looks on the network drive that we have and checks the local version vs the version on our network drive, if its wrong, then the user gets a popup stating your tools are out of date, would you like to update, then they click yes and I have these lines of code
Public Function GetNewTools()
Dim MyFullName As String
'Turn off alerts
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
'Open the new version of tools
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
The update file has this code that executes on fileopen in the thisworkbook section by calling the following sub
The main issue we're running into is near the very end, the code never makes it to "TEST 2". After the first workbooks close, the code just stops running. No crashes, errors, freezes, anything. It just stops running and never makes it to the second msg box.
Before Close Code Errors When Closing From Other Workbooks
I have a workbook which includes a simple set of options on closing such as selecting the front sheet, restoring scrollbars and saving the workbook. To avoid problems with subscripts out of range I am using the ThisWorkbook statement to close the workbook.
This works fine and causes the workbook to close when close is clicked on any excel window. The problem is that excel falls over when it tries to resume closing the other workbooks. I am given (ironically) an error saying "excel has encountered a problem and needs to close". Does anyone know how to work around this?
My code is below:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True
.DisplayWorkbookTabs = True
Prevent Close Code Until Message Confirmed
I have a spreadsheet with a number of fields on it which must be filled in before the file can be saved, and if the user attempts to close the spreadsheet without filling in the required fields, I want a message box to appear asking for confirmation that the user wishes to quit, if yes, the sheet exits, if no, the sheet remains open

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?
Using VBA To Open And Close Source File
I am working with a bunch of files to do a dashboard. I have the main file which shows end results and what my users will see "Dashboard". I have about 10-15 files which I export weekly from MS Access. and I have the "Dashboard Data" file. In this file I have a sheet which links all the information for the files exported from MS Access. In here I have named ranges and dynamic ranges plus additional columns created to look up information in other tables. I use this file as my source data for my Dashboard File so that I can reduce the size of the actually dashboard. Dashboard Data file is about 5.5 mb and my Dashboard is 300kb. I have 12 branches that need to view the data over a radius of a hundred miles so the smal file are better.
My problem: I can get the Dashboard Data file to update without opening all the 10-15 other files. I cant however make the Dashboard file update without opening the Dashboard Data file. I have it to auto update without prompting but its still tells me that it cannot update. I was wondering if there is some VBA code I could use that would work like this:
I open the Dashboard File, Dashboard Data file opens so that Dashboard file updates and then close Dashboard Data File so that the user never has to see the Dashboard Data file. I dont want them to see it or have access to it.
VBA Project Password Dialog Shows On Close
Here's a problem that I having and I'm wondering if someone could give me some insight as to why this is happening.
Hist of Issue:
Most of my projects for my employer are required to run various times of the day and various days of the week. So in order to accomplish this I use the "Digital Signature" to sign my apps so that when setting macro security to Medium they will still run.
When a particular app loads there is a Userform that I created which displays and allows the user to bypass automatic execution. This allows me to be able to work on the workbook without having to abort any automatic executing code. See "MyAutoStart.JPG" for an example of this.
Now somewhere down the line, and I'm not sure when though, up until this point I was living with the problem and now I must solve it. What happens is that I have a project that when it runs and then closes it displays the dialog box which asks for the VBA Project password.
VBA Macro (once Copied The Cell Value The Documents Then Close)
I have a large macro where it looks into 50 documents and pulls out a value from a specific cell.
I dont have any problem with the coding for this but was wondering if it is possible to add another line of coding so that once it has copied the cell value the documents then close.
Currently when I run the macro, it leaves all 50 documents open once it has taken all the cell values and pasted them into my "Master Document".
Code To Print Sheet
I have 7 digit values in Col B12: down. I have sheets with names that match any one of these values. Is it possible for a macro to print all sheets in my workbook whose name matches one of the values in Col B cells 12:down??
