Customizing Debug Pop Up Window
If a user decides to hit the esc key right in the middle of one of my procedures (bug free, etc), this will leave the file in an odd state. The file is set up so if the routine is re-run it cleans the file up and restores it to proper form.
But hitting esc exposes my code which is password protected when the file is idle. I employ a little trick that makes it hard to hack into my worksheet code, but one achilles heel is the esc button.
What I want is to have the file close if the routine is stopped in mid stream. This way the code is not exposed, and the user cannot monkey with the file.
I wanted to set the file up where i have a custom debug window that when a button is pressd the file closes OR when the user escapes out of the debug window the file closes as well.

Prevent Toolbar Customizing
I want to restrict users from adding or removing toolbars from the workbook.
I have created a custom toolbar named xlUtilDemo1 which consists of 4 buttons that appear at the top of the screen. I was able to restrict the movement of the toolbar, yet the user still can click the down arrow of the toolbar or right click the toolbar to customize the toolbar (select other ones).
below is the code that creates the toolbar and buttons. can anyone tell me how to make the add or remove buttons and the customize toolbar option disabled?

Debug Error 13
I have a working Excel 2007 macro that accesses two worksheets. I then added a third worksheet and want to access it from the macro. I get a debug error 13 Type Mismatch when the macro tries to access the third worksheet. I know I need to add the third worksheet on a pop-up but I don't remember how to open it.
Two Different Passwords Without Debug
I have a problem with a HUGE macro project I'm working on. The macro itself isn't huge, but it's being applied to about 10,000 files. The macro is updating information on three spreadsheets in each workbook, but the problem is that the password protection (and Macro in general) fails to unlock when the password was entered in UPPERCASE. So the password is "king" and/or "KING" depending on the sheet. There is no way of predicting which sheets will be caps and which will not, but it's frustrating when my macro stops every 5 files with an error because of a wrong password (even though it's always one of those two).
Is there an IF THEN statement or something that I can do so that the macro doesn't stall every 30 seconds to 2 minutes... I have 10,000 files to crawl through.

Find Function Debug
What I'm doing in this script is taking a whole bunch of variables and pasting them into a seperate sheet "Checks" which will construct a cashiers check. The problem is where I've highlighted the code in red. At that point I have copied the Vendor name to the clipboard - I then go to the "Vendor Info" page and search for that Vendor name. If that name exists on the page it works perfectly...moving one column to the right, grabbing the Address Line 1 and dropping it into the check, then going back and grabbing the Address Line 2 and dropping it into the check. The problem is when that Vendor name doesn't exist in the "Vendor Info" page...I want it to just paste two blank cells into the check (because I obviously don't have the address info for that Vendor)...but instead it gives me an error:

Debug F8 Stopped Working
I recently got a new laptop. I now have excel 2007 and vista. The debug step key, F8, does not work. It toggles out of excel when pushed. If I start the procedure in the debug menu, the SHIFT - F8 will step through though. Is there a setting I am missing? It must have somehting to do with VISTA since in the debug section it says to use F8.

Reading String Debug Kicking Out
I'm trying to create a macro that will send out emails to people based on an excel file that has 4 columns, nickname, purchased, owed, email address. I am able now to open the email, fill out to field, subject, body (mostly) and have it send if i change the code. The problem is kinda 2 part. I am trying to read in the amount owed cell (which is formatted to be $#.##) and then display that in the email, as well as reading in any other things and storing them to declared values. I am able to step through the code, but once it gets to the first part of reading in the nickname, it goes to the next line, you step through that, and then it immediately kicks out to the cleanup section. Below is the code... (Also, why is it that I need to set the row int to 1 insted of 2 (2 being where my data starts on the excel chart)).
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim cell As Range
Dim row, purch, owed As Integer
Dim nick As String
row = 1
purch = 0
owed = 0

Is there any way to change this behaviour (maybe some tool etc.)?
Debug Code & See Results As Stepping Through
When stepping through my macro it moves through each line of the code showing me the code as it steps through. Is there a way to step through and see the results of the code as it is going through. I have an "IF THEN" statement in the macro that is not giving me any results so I think I must have an incorrect reference in the code, but I can't see it. I think if I could watch what it is supposed to be doing as I step through I might be able to find the error.

Macro Runs Fine In Debug But Not From ComboBox
I have a workbook that contains 9 worksheets. Four of the worksheets have the same row lables in column B and must always be the same. Three of the worksheets are fed from the 4th sheet so that the integrity of the lables is maintained.
The user can change the lable value to meet their needs and they can insert or delete rows (within limits) as they see fit.
The attached macro "Sub Delete_Row_All_Sheets()" works fine when I run it from Debug (F8).
However, when I run it from Forms.ComboBox the macro returns to the "y = Application.InputBox("Enter The Row Number You Wish To Delete", _" screen. If I select cancel, the results I anticipated occur but I don't want the user to have to assume this will happen.
Why does the macro return to this screen when executed from the ComboBox but not when executed from Debug?

Remove References Programmatically & How To Prevent Debug Error
i m working on an excel 2007 workbook with ms project functionality. in order to be able to use ms project from within excel i m using early binding. for those who dont know what early binding is: http://www.dicks-clicks.com/excel/olBinding.htm
this works fine if the user has ms project installed on his/her pc.
if the user does not have ms project installed i remove the broken references. this works fine.
but my problem is that when i remove the reference to ms project, my vba project will not compile correctly. thus each time when a user opens the workbook the user gets a "compile error in hidden module" , since the functions of ms project are not available.
for example i get a compile error in the following source
Public Function getResID(ResName As String, ActiveProject As Project) As Integer
Dim res As Resource
For Each res In ActiveProject.Resources
If res.name = ResName Then
getResID = res.ID
getResID = -1
i just want to know what i can do to prevent the compile error? would the use of late binding remove the problem? actually i dont want to use late binding since my source code is already very complex and it would be a huge effort to change it.
Pasting Data Debug Error On A Sheet With Borders

I have tried everything i can think of to solve the problem but have had no luck. anybody have an idea what is causing this. i attached the workbook file so you can see what is going on.
OpenText Function In Macro Hangs Unless Stepping Through Code In Debug
We have had a macro running for a few years (Excel 2007 now, but started in 2003) that imports about 35 text files into separate sheets, creates a calculated SUM field for each sheet and copies that value to a title (or summary) sheet. We use this 2 to 4 times per year at inventory time, copying to a new file and deleting the old data before running the macro. The imported files initially create new workbooks, but the data is copied to the initial workbook into a distinct sheets for each file.
Recently (well, last August) this macro started hanging after importing (Workbooks.OpenText) a number of files, and not necessarily the same file every time (on repeated runs.) While trying to figure out the problem, I have now managed to get it to hang every time on the first file! However, if I am stepping through in the debugger it continues past the OpenText command and on F5:Run/Continue will then continue processing the rest of the files normally. If I delete the first file before running the macro, it then hangs on the second file instead.
Without debugging, the first file will import, display on-screen, and there it stops. If I put a break-point on the very next instruction after the import, that break-point is never reached. THINGS I'VE TRIED:.......

Yes/No Pop-up Window
I have a certain macro which copies data from one file to the other. There are several target files (refering to a given month each) and one source file. The user chooses a month from a drop down list in the source file which modifies a certain cell. The value of this cell decides on which of the 12 target files will be opened to paste the data to. The macro also copies the value of a cell which refers to the current date (=TODAY()) This number is then compared with a the range (value between two pints in time: start and end date of a given month). All I need is some sort of a pop-up window with a header i.e. WARNING. and the window text: You are about to send the information to a file which does not refere to the current month, are you sure you want to perform this action" and two buttons YES and NO in case the value of the current date does not match the range set up by the starting and ending of a given month in the target file. The button YES would then do waht ever the code that was placed before the pop-up window said, save the aplication and close it, and the NO button would simply close the aplicatiown without saving it. Something like that:
'the whole code describing the action to be taken
If Range("A1").Value >= Range("A3").Value And Range("A1").Value <= Range("A2").Value Then
'here the A1 cell refers to the current date and cells A2 and A3 to the start and the end date of the month
Closing Immediate Window

New Window On The Taskbar
i was recently upgraded to Excel 2003 and have found that whenever i open more than one workbook, it opens in a new window on the taskbar (similar to opening another application)... I remember having this in my previous version of excel but i can't for the life of me remember how i switched this off?
I open up Excel by double clicking on a file, it opens but it just has a grey background and the file I opened is displayed as a small 1 inch stip in the top left - just a title bar with the windows maximise, minimise and close buttons.
What ever I click I can't see any of the cells!
Set Window Size With VBA.
I'm looking for a way to use VBA to set the window size upon opening the workbook. When the document opens, there should be two windows, each taking up half the screen and each on a particular tab.
Currently, if I save the workbook with the window settings I want, when I open it, both windows are maximized. When I hit the restore button, they go back the settings with which they were saved, which is what I want it to look like as soon as it's opened. Also, a bonus would be for the code to determine the screen size, so it can fill the screen no matter what monitor/computer it's opened on.
There is a column with a formula and a list validation, and an adjacent hidden column with numbered ids. When moving into the list validation cell the Worksheet_Selection_Change event code saves information about the Target cell - value, address, formula. When a value has been obtained from the list the Worksheet_Change event code looks up a belonging id in a lookup table and put this in the hidden id cell, and puts the saved formula back into the list validation cell. This makes the sheet (or window) unmanagable.
When I move around the sheet I can see the cell name in the Name Box, but the sheet itself is not visible. The only way to display the sheet is to add a new window (Window - New Window), choose the first "frozen" window (Window - 1. window) and quit this window. Then the new window is ready for use, but of course with the same limitations as the newly quitted one. Ring a bell, someone?? The funny thing is that in this workbook I also use the same functionality in another sheet without any problems.
I've built a macro to run a loop that opens excel files, prints certain sheets and closes them. I have the macro working - to some degree. here is my code (this is excel):
OldPath = "S:RMBS_Performance_Analytics Analysis1 Staging Folder For Monthly Model Templates2007200704VVDeals"
Dim t As Workbook
Dim s As String
Dim a As Window
.LookIn = OldPath
.SearchSubFolders = False
.Filename = "*.xls"
.MatchTextExactly = True
If .Execute() > 0 Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
s = .FoundFiles(i)
I have 2 problems. First problem is that I am trying to add a function to make the window close once its finished printing. This actually works - but it limits my loop iterations from i = 1 to 2 (so it only runs 2 times and I'm not exactly sure why). If I don't include the statement - this can run for up to 7 - 8 times (these are very large files) then excel runs out of memory. Unfortunately, i can't set the loop to run from i = anything other than one.
So What I would prefer is to be able to make the "ActiveWindow.close" command work - because this way I can run the entire loop. But I'm not sure how to. I tried window referencing, I tried adding a new active Window so when the file opens, its opening in the active window already, but nothing works.
Preferably, I need to be able to reference both windows, as my next macro will involve referencing 2 windows (one static - always open) and the other the loop above.

Macro For Pop-up Window With Picture
A macro, which would allow me to click on a particular cell, which will have an ID number (1 through 34), each ID# is attributed to a particular employee. These ID# are located in my spreadsheet in columns B & G, and the ID #'s begin initially in B6 & G6 and continue downward to B34 & G34. These ID #'s are used in a vlookup type formula which covers 35 pages of this workbook. What I'd like to do is be able to click on any cell between B6& B34 (and/or the same in G6&G34), which has a particular ID # in it and have the photo of that particular employee designated with that ID# pop up in a window generated by the macro. I hope this makes sense! Any help would be greatly appreciated. My 1st sheet in my workbook is my "lookup" tab, which contains my ID# list and numbering sequence affiliated to each employee. So I'm not sure if I'd need to put the photograph of the employee in a column next to the employees name or have a folder designated with all my pictures in a certain directory, etc.
Create A Popup Window
Is it possible to create a popup window that contains drawing objects?
I created a "form" with the objects, but I don't know how to use the form.

Can it be hidden and then made visible when the cell is selected?

Append Value To Url In IE Using Window Handle?
I'm trying to manipulate a URL in an already opened IE browser window. In a nutshell, I need to change "http://www.excelforum.com" to "http://www.excelforum.com/this-is-the-new-part"
The code prior to this does the following:
- Opens a new instance of IE
- Enters the username and password required to get into the site
- Scrapes the source code, imports it into Excel, and parses the data
- Finds a row based on the current date and some text
- Extracts from that row a unique identifier...
- Obtains the window handle ID for the instance of IE displaying the website
Now I need to add the unique identifier to the url. I cannot open it in a new tab or instance of the browser, as it revokes back to the login screen. I was assuming that the best way to do this would be to get the window handle, then just send a "tab" to get back to the URL, and enter the new URL. If there's any other way to do this, I'm all ears. Otherwise, how can I send the keys using the window handle?

Edit Window Not Working ..
Heres a strange thing, My latest version of a spreadsheet i have design has got a small problem. When clicking on a cell, nothing appears in the edit window, and when you double click on the cell to edit the contents the data disappears.
This only happens on one sheet within a workbook of 7 pages. The werid thing is that it does not happen on the version before
Any ideas how this could of happened and is there a fix?
Document Recovery Window
When I start Excel I get a Document Recovery Window that lists a file that was lost some time ago. I don't need the file and don't want the window appearing. If I click on the listed file, or right click and select "open", "save as", or "show repairs", the window disappears and I get a blank document.
I know I could write code that would automatically close the window when I start Excel, but there has to be a better way. I DO want the window to appear when there is really a file that needs to be recovered, but I don't want the listed file and don't want the window.
Force UserForm To Always Be Top Window
Is it possible to create a "floating" UserForm with VBA? That is, a form that is always on top af all the other windows. If not I think I will have to create an application in VB that imports data from the active Excel Spreadsheet, wich I have been lead to understand is fully possible. I really need this for the application that I am currently developing and I from what I have heard it is possible in VB.
