The Workbook Open Minimzed Until The The Splash Screen Closes Then Open Properly
Nov 20, 2008
My Splash screen opens a few seconds after the workbook has loaded. Is there a way to make the workbook open minimzed until the the splash screen closes then open properly? What I trying to say is that only the splash screen is visible until it closes.
I have a workbook that has worksheets that serve as data input pages for the user. I have control boxes created by the forms toolbar.
I created a splash screen that is to be launched when the file is opened. Instead, often the last sheet that the user was on when they last saved the file (usually but not always the worksheet called "Main Menu") is seen first.
I understand that not all the sheets can be hidden - that one must be unhidden.
So I created a sheet called "Background" that is a solid color with no gridelines.
When the file is opened, I want the "Background" sheet to be seen first and then the splash screen to be initiated.
Now - when the user opens the file, the Main Menu worksheet is seen for a few seconds (or whatever the last sheet was on before it was last saved), then it disappears and the solid background screen is shown with the splash screen. When the splash screen ends, the "Background" sheet disappears.
Here is the code that I have in the workbook
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim wks As Worksheet On Error Resume Next For Each wks In ThisWorkbook If wks.Name "Background" Then wks.Visible = False End If Next wks End Sub
What has to be changed so that the first sheet that is seen upon opening the file is the "Background"; then the splash screen happens; then it returns to the Main Menu sheet?
I've got a list of files in column A (Starting A1), this is complete with filepaths Now I need a macro to open the workbook in A1 then when i close that workbook it then opens the workbook in A2 basically to save me opening them manually each time..
I am trying to display a splash screen which fades in and then fades out and closes itself leaving the ap showing. I have utilized code that I found wih permission to use but I'm still doing something wrong.
Option Explicit '// This Userform code has everything you need to make a captionless userform '// Fade In & Out
'// Transparency Private Declare Function SetLayeredWindowAttributes _ Lib "user32" ( _ ByVal hWnd As Long, _ ByVal crKey As Long, _ ByVal bAlpha As Byte, _ ByVal dwFlags As Long) _ As Long

I've developed a complex dictator application, which pretty much takes over the entire Application object. During beta testing, I've had some user complaints that, once my program is started, they can't access their existing workbooks.
In order to remedy this situation, I'm trying to construct a front-loader workbook, which will automatically determine whether or not to start a new instance (application) of Excel. If the user already has a workbook open (i.e. "MiscBook.xls"), the front-loader will start a new application; otherwise, it will just use the existing application.
My "Auto_Open" code for the front-loader workbook is shown below:
Dim xlApp As Excel.Application Dim wbkTemp As Workbook, wbkApp As Workbook Dim lCount As Long Dim vTemp As Variant
The code works fine, but I have a minor gripe: every time a new application is created ("Else" in the "If-Else" above), the screen doesn't appear to refresh. In other words, I get a new window (instance of Excel), but none of my custom-defined buttons and menus show up. If I hover my mouse over their intended locations, they "appear" one at a time.
I'm just wondering - is there something I can do to prevent this behavior, or "refresh" the new application window upon startup? I'm essentially looking for something like "Userform.Repaint", only for a brand-new Excel Application object.
How can I make excel go to full screen (Alt-W-E) as soon as a workbook is opened and then revert back to normal view when it is closed? I already have this code in my workbook_open event just in case that will affect the answer:
HTML Code: Private Sub Workbook_Open() If Not LockSheet(ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet) Then Exit Sub
I have a userform that opens a woorkbook and fills some textbox from that woorkbook. Although that it goes very fast it is still visible (sometime just in the toolbar) and flickers the screen. Is it possible to open it "hidden"?
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() Application.ScreenUpdating = False On Error Resume Next Workbooks("Kontrollsystemet.xls").Close SaveChanges:=False Workbooks.Open "V:allaBeredningKontrollsystemetKontrollsystemet.xls", ReadOnly:=True Sheets("Calc").Activate Label4 = Range("K7") Label5 = Range("L7") Workbooks("Kontrollsystemet.xls").Close SaveChanges:=False Caption = Now TextBox1.SetFocus Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have created a splash screen. Is it possible when the excel workbook is opened up that only the splash screen shows? Right now, the workbook opens and there is one sheet that is visible for a certain period of time and then the splash screen comes on. I would like the reverse to happen. First the splash screen and then the one sheet.
I have 1 main userform and I need to open another userform using a command button from within that 1st form. The 2nd userform appear right in front of the 1st userform. When the 2nd userform is closed either via VBA or clicking on X, it closes both forms.
why this happens and how I can make only the 2nd form close when it is finished with?
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.
I would like to write a Sub that will see if a workbook is open and if it is not then open it. I know how to have a macro automatically open a workbook, but I run into problems when the macro runs and tries to open an already opened workbook.
I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim dTime As Date dTime = Time If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _ dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then ImportData End If End Sub
This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?
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
If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................
I've sent out an excel spreadsheet to a whole load of people and some have received emails back saying that it won't open properly. It's got a form which pops up and populates two data sheets behind it.
One of the issues I've had so far is that the Microsoft Common Controls library isn't installed on some computers so the form won't work. Are there any other controls that are likely to not be installed and thus prevent the form from opening?
is it possible to write vb code to open the workbook, scroll through everysheet? extract the values from each worksheet?
let's just say, I only know the workbook name, but not the sheets of the name inside. So the vb code could scroll through every worksheet without knowing the worksheet name, only the workbook name(workbook.xls)
This is pretty basic I just don't know what command to use. 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.
I'm launching a main form from a menu I've added. I want to make the form modal. From that form, the user can launch several other forms (that I also want to be modal). If any of the forms are modal, then the Excel sheet that is visible in the background does not refresh. If the form is moved at all it creates a dragging pattern on the screen and hides the spreadsheet. That's not so bad, except when I get to either a second or third level form and start closing them. They're still visible even though the previous level form is now on top. Most of the forms get bigger the deeper you go into the data entry process. So, as you close them and move back up the chain, it gets very confusing. If I simply make the forms modeless, it refreshes fine. I've tried using Application. ScreenUpdating = True and Me.Repaint with no success. I couldn't figure out where to put the Me.Repaint since there isn't a UserForm_Move event.
I cooked up a nice little splash screen using a user form. It seems to be left of center on the screen when it pops up. Is there a way to set the x and y coordinates to 'place' the splash where I want it to go?
I searched for this and found a few examples on splash screens, but if someone could help I would appreciate it.
Basically I have this massive macro that runs, I recorded some of it, and VBA the rest. It does a bunch of things like bringing in different spreadsheets, formatting vlookups blah blah blah... Anyway for a nice touch I was hoping that I could get a splash screen or something that will run while this macro is running in the background. How hard would this be? The macro is button driven...
