Open Object

Oct 19, 2009

I have inserted a workwook in another workbook that the user will have to edit and save changes from time to. I have the excel file inserted as an object. when I double click it the file opens and I can save changes made.

I'm trying to create a macro that can open the object from other tabs. i used the macro recorder and got this

Range("I21:O25").Select
Sheets("Formulas").Select
ActiveSheet.Shapes("Object 3").Select
Windows("Worksheet in SBATrendReport2010").Visible = True
Selection.Verb Verb:=xlPrimary
ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMaximized
End Sub

The problem I'm having is I get a error message when I run the macro
"subscript out of range.

Macro To Open Dialog Insert Object

Jul 19, 2013

I am trying to add a simple function to button in Excel.

First I need to select cell G24 as that where the inserted file should be placed on the worksheet. Then on the Add Object window to open but the tab 'Create from file selected.

Below is only part of the solution
Sub ShowInsertObj()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogInsertObject).Show
End Sub

Also is it possible to detect that file has been placed on the page ? In cell G24?

I am wanting users to attach a required zip file. I then need to check if they have done so.

Method Open Of Object Workbooks Failed

Feb 9, 2010

I need some help with this error. I have some VBA code in Outlook that runs whenever a task reminder goes off. The code is supposed to open a workbook, send email based on the info in the workbook, then close the workbook and quit excel.

The task reminders are set to go off every two hours. Sometimes this will work fine for days and then randomly (as far as I can tell) I get the error: "Method Open of Object Workbooks failed". If I press Debug and then Run without changing anything at all, it works fine.

I am using Outlook 2007 and Excel 2007. The workbook is a shared workbook on a network drive.

I can post code if needed, but will have to go to that computer.

Why do I occasionally get this error when the workbook definitely exists and has the same name and path?

What does entering debug mode do that then allows the macro to run without error?

Object Library Invalid Or Contains References To Object Definitions

Jan 17, 2005

I'm getting the following error:

"Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found"

I wasn't getting that error last night and I'm not sure what I may have done to cause this error.

It seems to be cause by code running on one sheet of my workbook, but I'm not really sure about that. I'm still a bit of a novice at VBA.

I'm using Excel 2002 SP3 and I'm running MS XP Home as my OS.

Do you have any ideas what can cause this error and/or how to trace down the offending objects/code?

Pivot Chart Object: Find Any Suitable Object To Choose From To Make A Pivot Chart In Powerpoint

Mar 21, 2007

1) i have office 2003 on a laptop. within powerpoint, i can create a 'microsoft excel chart 11' object. to create a link to the excel data source, do i have to go through the odbc sql setup? it works, but i don't want my powerpoint to be dependent on some excel file somewhere. what are the other options to insert/make a functional pivot chart in powerpoint with the data also within powerpoint? the data as sheet option does not result in the chart being a pivot, it's just a plain chart. it has to be a proper object, not an image paste or a chart that updates links with the excel file open.

2) i have office 2007 on my other laptop. i can not find any suitable object to choose from to make a pivot chart in powerpoint. what's the best way to go about in 2007 version?

3) am i going about this the wrong way with the objects? should i be after vba code?

Suppress Open Events When Using Workbooks.Open

Dec 3, 2008

I have built a sub that prompts the user for a folder then opens every workbook in the folder 1 at a time to get stats on the contents of each workbook. Worked like a dam until I ran into an unexpected bug. Some of the users built on open events in their workbooks. ...

Right now my routine inventories workbooks to get formula counts, cell counts, most complex formula, highest value... it does this by looping throught the sheets and the cells. If there is a way of obtaining those stats without opening the workbook I may need to rethink a lot of my work.

MacRO: Check If WorkBook Open. If Not, Open It.

Sep 27, 2006

I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code I´m using for tranfering the sheet

Sub Transfer_Sluttet()
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2")
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it

Open Message Box Or Disable Option On Open

Mar 30, 2007

how to make a MsgBox open anytime a cell in Column A was double-clicked--and the content of the MsgBox was from the cell in the same row in column Z. I've now realized the double-clicking isn't an ideal solution, as it's easy to click in another cell and mess up all the formulas.

(1) Code that deactivates the "edit directly in cell" option when the workbook is opened.

(2) Code that opens the MsgBox when a cell in Column A is clicked just once (or similarly less fool-proof than double-clicking or right-clicking).

Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files

Jul 3, 2007

I'm doing the following:

Dim myname As String
myname = Application. GetOpenFilename

I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook.
The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but
I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then
parse off to get just the workbook name.

Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.

Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:

myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")

I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.

If-sequence To Not Open Workbook If Already Open

I have a macro that's supposed to copy data from one workbook to another, it works fine but In the macro it open the other workbook then closes it. I would like the macro to not reopen the second workbook if it is already open (since reopening causes it to lose the newly updated info). I think it can be done with a If command but I don't know which tried the following: If workbooks("M:/database") Is Open but of course 'is open' doesn't work, but can anyone tell me what to use instead.

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity

Add Hyperlink To Object

I have a sub which loads a bitmap image onto a sheet, lets say to sheet1 ,cell B2, the reference sheet1!b2 is held on sheet2 in column A.

how to add a hyperlink to the image so that when it is clicked it looks at looks at the value on sheet2 and creates hyperlink to that cell, effectively selecting the cell underneath the image. I've tried this with text - using the following in a cell:

=HYPERLINK("[LoCQ34.xlsm]indirect(Sheet2!A2",Sheet2!B2) - this works for a text link, using the add hyperlink from the right click menu but doesnt do what I want with a bitmap, and I'm not sure how I'd do this in VB.

So, i would like to know it can it be applied to an image, and how can it be done in VB as the value in Sheet2 changes?
