I hide all Excel standard tabs and thus need a button on custom tab to record a macro. (I did this successfully with custom menu in Excel 2003.) In 2007 ribbon, I've reused the code for a button's OnAction, now going to callback that runs:
In Excel 2003, the stop button appeared automatically for me. But in Excel 2007, with hiding standard tabs, etc., I see no way to stop recording, other than running my button to return the Developer's tab, where the Record Macro button has changed to Stop Macro.
I'd like to either add a second button to my ribbon to stop recording the macro (but I can't find an idMso to use in a callback) or have my Record button change to Stop button, like Excel does. But I can't come up with correct code.
I used macro recorder, and this code was the result. Is there a way to shorten this code up? The more I use macro recorder, the more I'm beginning to realize that the code generated from macro recorder can be very sloppy.
Is it possible to use the Macro recorder in Excel to store user variables that they put in through a UserForm? So say when a textbox on a userform is changed, it records a macro of what is put into the textbox, which it can then call to retrieve the value.
The way i have been creating macros is by going to the tools menu.....macro....then..... record new macro.
I have a file which I have re-formatted using a macro as described above however because i receives files every month to do updates every time i open a new file and try to perform that same macro it either wont work or it wont format the correct rows.......is VBA the solution to this????
I've created VBA code in Access 2007 to create a column chart in Excel, and it is working. I need to change the rotation on my category labels to 270 degrees vertical. When I record a macro on the chart in Excel 2007. I only receive the following
Sub chartingRotation() ' ' chartingRotation Macro '
' ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).Select ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate End Sub
How can I get the macro recorder to record changes to chart properties?
Had 2003 now 2013. Trying to get the macro to select different printers for different doccuments. 2013 macro recorder does not record any printer info or path, all printers show the same wording just application print...
How can I get the recorder to acurrately record and diferentiate printers?
I have recorded a macro that will copy and paste information from text files to two separate sheets in a workbook. Previous versions of this have worked fine but now I have a "subscript out of range problem" for this line: Sheets("Raakadata").Select
I'm doing this project to someone else and the weird thing is I don't see this error in my computer but they have it in theirs. The workbook has been recently renamed to oljy_vedesta.xls but it should be correct in the code. The syntax should be fine as macro recorder has been used but still this error comes up with the another computer (all the required files are there).
The attached workbook contains a macro ("Transfer_Data") that copies values from one cell to another when the "Update Progress" button (near cell A3) is selected. It works perfectly fine in this workbook but when I try the same code in another workbook, which looks and operates exactly like this one, nothing happens.
Is this due to a security setting or missing code line items?
Below is a code which I added to my 'Quick access toolbar' (and which is based off a hidden workbook). I use this macro to fulfill tasks to regular excel spreadsheets that are not macro enabled, however, I can't seem to get this macro to work for other workbooks. How to modify my code to work for other spreadsheets.
It gives me a error and says my password is wrong. I have user names set to return the password so that it is unlocked for certain people. It works for unprotecting the sheets. I modified it and added it back in to try to do it for the workbook.
I realize that they " and () around the password are differant, but that's how I last left them. I have tried several combinations and it just gives me more errors saying expected end of statement, etc.
I have this macro which sits in the workbook module:
Code: Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range) Static OldRng As Range
On Error Resume Next If Application.CutCopyMode = xlCopy Or Application.CutCopyMode = xlCut Then OldRng.EntireColumn.FormatConditions(1).Delete OldRng.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Delete
It's used to highlight the selected/active row.
But, as soon as I run another macro, it simply stops working entirely and I'm left with a row permanently highlighted until you manually remove the conditional formatting. All formats and cell colours controlled in the other macro stop working as well. This is the other (edited for publishing) macro, which is used to send an email, and is found in a module:
Code: Sub Send_Mail() 'this sends an email that sends a text message
Dim OutApp As Object Dim OutMail As Object Dim MyButton As String Dim strTo As String
I didn't write the first macro so I'm not sure where the problem is? I'm guessing there is something in the code that is stopping it from working (i.e. running conditional formats) as soon as another macro is run? Is that was is happening?
I've got a semi-recorded macro to format a report I run, and towards the end it deals with sorting, subtotalling, formatting text etc. The main function of the macro is to split a large report into several smaller reports defined by whichever manager name appears in the relevant column. The smaller reports need subtotalling by 2 different columns so I have the following macro code :
For some reason this only subtotals by the second column and not the first. I tried swapping them over so GroupBy1 then GroupBy2 but it's still the same. Anyone got any ideas why this might be? I appreciate it's not the smoothest code I could use but I don't know enough about code to do any better.
I've got a column that auto-populates from anther column depending on what's input, and that's working fine. I also have a button set up to select and copy the auto-populated data. I just recorded myself select the top cell and hit shift+ctrl+down to select just the values that are populated. What it does, however, is selects the blank ones too. I know the counta() function would work, but I don't know how to input that into a macro.
The macro I have now is:
Sub Copy() Range("B2").Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select Selection.Copy End Sub
I have a macro to export two worksheets and save as, but the save as part will not work, it just exports to Book1.
Ive checked the directory and everything is fine.
I want the value of a cell in one of the exported worksheet to be included in the save as name.
I'm just wondering if the code needs to somehow specify the worksheet to get the cell value from or will it default to the first worksheet. but either way my code is still not working and i can't tell why.
Should i just create a seperate macro for the save as?
I got a problem with a macro i'm working on. I got column D which contains text as "Figures", "Toys", "3DS", "PS3" etc. I also got column N where i need the macro to display "Toys" if it's a toy, figure, etc; or "Games" if it's "PS3", "PS4" etc.
I'm using the following code, to also select only blank rows (so to ignore row 1 which is table header). Problem is that the result shows only "Games".
I'm having a problem with my macro .However, if i use the following script:
If i am correct all the rows with a value less than 1 should be hidden right? However, some rows are hidden when they shouldn't be.
Im working on a quotation with different products in it. And the rows with a 0 in it should be hidden and that's pretty much working. But it also hides some of the subtotals(which i dont want) and some stay unhidden.
i have a worksheet named for example 'allocation 1' this is a master document and is opened and modified and 'saved as' under a customer name. This then stops a few important macros working properly because they refer to the original title and not the new saved title. Is there any code that will let the macro recognise any new title it is saved under?
I found the following code elsewhere on the net, and have attempted to use it in my workbook to change the names of all 31 worksheets when a certain cell's (C7) value changes. The code looks good to me, so I cannot understand why it is not working. I am not getting error messages, just no changes to the sheet names.
I believe this may be due to the value of C7 on each sheet being dictated by a formula, so the value is not being changed with the sheet active, but indirectly with a formula that pulls the value from a cell on another sheet, and then adds.
I wish I could have been more specific with my Title. This is what I am encountering. I used the McGimpsey code for generating a unique sequential number every time a workbook opens. I tailored the code to fit my needs and stuck it into my invoice sheet. For the longest time I was unable to make it work until I moved the code from a template to a standard workbook. Then I was able to make it work as long as the sheet was unprotected. I realized that to get the code to work I had to then unprotect the cells that the code was writing to. Now that I've done that I am getting errors in the code that weren't there before, rendering the macro useless. The code I am using is:
I have constructed a macro, (with lots of help from the fine people on this site), and have distributed it to several people in the company. The macro was written in Excel 2003, and runs perfectly on all the machines running Excel 2003, but persons using Excel 2000 are getting a runtime error, variable not defined.
Is there a trick to getting a macro to run in both versions of Excel?
i have an excel doc. with three sheets... i may start that macro on any sheet any cell the 1st thing that macro does is to go to sheet1 and after running the whole code it calls another macro... macro2
now macro2 runs in an infinte loop and runs evry 20 sec. the problem is every 20 sec the cursor comes back to sheet3.. i want the macro to return to the place where the user was working.. best wud be that the user can work seem lessly...
