Open Object

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

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.

Method Open Of Object Workbooks Failed
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 Defined Error When Code In Workbook Open Event
I have a macro that checks if a username is in a particular list, and if it is, it unhides certain sheets in the workbook.

The code runs fine if I just run it as a macro or off a command button, but I am trying to execute it when the workbook opens and I keep getting a 57121, Application defined or object defined error.

The code is below;

Private Sub Workbook_Open()


Dim Res1 As VbMsgBoxResult
Dim GovRng As Range

For Each GovRng In Sheets("Map").Range("GovernanceMembers")
If GovRng.Value = Application.UserName Then Goto 111
Next GovRng

Exit Sub

Embedded Pdf File Open Error "Cannot Start The Source Application For This Object."
I have embeded a PDF file in an Excel Worksheet. When I double-click to open the PDF file the I get an error message: "Cannot start the source application for this object." However, the pdf file opens anyway. how to prevent the error message from displaying (without stopping real error messages)? (...happens in Excel 2000 and Excel 2003) NB: I researched this site first - user "Ed" raised the same issue 27/1/03 - but it doesn't appear to have been resloved.

Object Library Invalid Or Contains References To Object Definitions
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
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?

Open Message Box Or Disable Option On Open
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).

Suppress Open Events When Using Workbooks.Open
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.
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.

Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files
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.

Automatically Open New Workbook After 1st Workbook Open 4 Seconds
I have a presentation that I open from a short-cut. After the "Welcome Page" is opened, I want to open a second workbook in a new instance of Excel after 4 seconds.

I think that I can open the new instance of excel, but I don't know how to activate the macro after 4 seconds.

I'm sure there is a function someplace for this that can be used in a macro.

Then, after the second Workbook is opened, I want the Welcome Page "Workbook" closed, leaving the second Worbook open.

Selecting A Picture Object
On one sheet I have a table of contents that has a name in column A. In column B I currently have a hyperlink to some text to take me to a cell under a drawing object in another sheet. I wanted to make this more elegant and easier to see which object you are supposed to look at. To do this I thought of using VBA and anchoring a text box in column B of the TOC sheet that I could attach a macro to. Below is my code but it means I need a separate macro for each object. I have 200 and counting. The text in the adjacent cell in column A contains the name. Is there some way for the macro to know what row the control object is in so that it can get the name from the adjacent cell?

Second question. Is there a routine like .OnSelection where I could change the background color of the object only when it is selected? So when another object is selected the previous one reverts back to the original condition.

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?

How To Know Which Object Library To Choose
how you know which object library to add to references when you want to automate an application?

for example Adobe acrobat.

or internet explorer ( ie).

I know that the .dll for ie id shdocvw (an i know it's explicitly listed under internet controls) but how would i know this is it wasn't listed?

Also, correct me if i'm wrong, but usung the shdocvw.dll will only give you access to the main controls of Ie nd you would need to add a HTML library to do anything use full. How do you know if there are other libraries available can make the 'usefulness' of one library more useful?

Centering The Active Object
I have a basic data table with KPI labels down one side and dates across the top. Using this data table as the series source, I create a number of charts below it with serialised names eg Chart0, Chart1, Chart2, etc. I am attempting to enable the KPI labels so that when a user clicks it, the spreadsheet will navigate to the appropriate chart. I place the name value for the chart object in the cell immediataly to the left of each KPI label (and hide it). This way I know which chart object below is related to which KPI label above. That part works.
I have a Worksheet_SelectionChange() event procedure attached to the charting worksheet. When a user clicks into one of the KPI labels, the event procedure fires and the appropriate chart is activated. The code is:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B5:B19")) Is Nothing Then
On Error Resume Next
chtObjName = Range(Target.Address).Offset(0, -1).Range("A1").Value
If Left(chtObjName, 5) = "Chart" Then
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
MsgBox "No such chart exists.", vbCritical, _
"Chart Not Found"
End If
End If
On Error Goto 0
