I would like the security warning not to pop up when the workbook is opened. I have been able to turn it off for myself but I had someone else test it and each time it's opened the security warning pops up with the disable, enable messages. Is there a way to turn this off permanently so not matter who opens it it won't pop up?
I was playing around with Macros on an excel file. I created a few and ran them. In the end, I didn't like the way they ran, so I deleted them all. However since I ran them in the excel file, every time I open the file it gives me a warning saying "Macros have been disabled."
Is there any way to remove the possible Macros ties/links from my file? I know I can disable the warning, but if I just want to remove the Macros ties to my file.
I'm using Excel 2003 and recently when I open a file, it prompts out a Security Warning message about Marcros which at the end contains 3 choices: Disable Macros, Enable Macros, and More Info. I then click Enable Macros to open the file. Once open, I go to Tools > Marco > Run Marco (Alt+F8). A Macro box prompt out but the Macro list is empty. I try different choice inside the pull down menu "Macros in" but the Macro list is still empty.
Where can I find out the macro which triggers the warning message of Security Warning when opening the file? And how can I delete the macro if found useless.
my workbook is finally working the way it should but every time i open it i get a security warning window with the options disable macros, enable macros and more info. how do i get this to not show up every time it's opened. this workbook will be used by someone other than me and i don't want them to need to do anything but open it and use it.
My dad wrote me a VB programme to save me time entering repetitive data into an excel template for my business. At first it didnt work untilll i reduced security to low. Sice then I fried my computer and have had to reformat it with a diffirent version of windows, vista service pack 3. Now even on low security it doesnt work.
The little button in the worksheet to make the macro happen isnt visible or doesnt exist.
I just loaded Excel 2007, and then opened a workbook I wrote that made pretty extensive use of macros and code. I knew enough to first set up Excel via the "Trust Center" to allow ALL macros to run, against MS's, or more likely against MS's lawyer's, recommendations. btw, does anyone have a clue as to what "Trust access to the VBA project module" is all about? Apparently MS doesn't, for I have searched Help and the KB for it in vain. Anyway, I brought the old xls workbook in, then saved it as a macro-enabled spreadsheet, .xlsm. Then I open it, and uhg, a most distasteful surprise. Even though I specifically went in and set Excel to run all freaking macros, someone at MS has decided I am too stoooopid to make this decision, and all macros have been automatically disabled. OK, so let us click where it says "Options" on this warning bar.
A window pops up telling me that this file contains encrypted macros that have been disabled...". Do a search on that, again, MS, MS kb, even Google, and you are not going to find it (In quotes). There is ONE freaking option with a radio button now, telling me "Help protect me from unknown content" - again, I try a Google search, an MS search and an MS kb search... nothing directly addressing it; but I do the logical intuitive thing - there is a selected radio button there, so click it to unselect it. Click the idiot thing until the cows come home, darn it, it won't do a thing! I even tried an Alt-p as they have the "p" underlined - all that does is select the statement, it remains selected, tap the space bar, hit the space bar, stand on the space bar... First they disable all the macros. OK, I can live with going in and fixing that, but then deciding that I am too dumb to make that choice so don't allow me to turn them on in my own freaking code? Yes, it has been several hours and I am still pissed off beyond belief.
I have used the following Macro that deletes the Macro code. It then saves the file and quits excel.
************************************* Sub removeAllCode() Dim awi Dim awcl As Integer Dim count As Integer Dim i As Integer 'loop counter On Error Resume Next count = ActiveWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.count For i = 1 To count Set awi = ActiveWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Item(i) awcl = awi.CodeModule.CountOfLines awi.CodeModule.DeleteLines 1, awcl Next i Set awi = Nothing ThisWorkbook.Save Application.Quit End Sub *************************************
However when I open the Excel File, I still get the Macro Prompt. I have checked in Macro list as well as in VB Editor and no Macro code exists
If I have the file manually (or do a save as) and then reopen the file, I no longer get the Macro prompt.
I have tried various examples listed in different forums/sites but nothing works.
I have a couple spreadsheet Excel 2003 that I have to Email, I use a few macros with these spreadsheets. The Macros are kept in my personal workbook. When I Email these sheets does the end user see the warning enable macros or do they just see the sheet as is. I am mailing the whole workbook but macros are in my personal workbook. If they see the warning is it possible for me to Email so they will not have to contend with that?
Everytime I open the excel file I am working on I get a message saying that the file contains macros.
I have deleted all the macros I could find under "Tools" and "Macros" but I still get Module1.sortie, sortie and sortie listed. I can delete Module1.sortie but for the other two, sortie and sortie, I only have the "cancel" and "create" options.
I have several workbooks that use macros from my personal macro library (MyExcelAddIns.xlam).
Some of these, especially new ones, get an error message every time I save them: "Privacy warning: This document contains macros, ActiveX controls, ... These may contain information that cannot be removed by the Document Inspector."
Then after I save it once or twice, the message goes away. Why am I getting this message? Why only sometimes? What can I do to get rid of it entirely?
I have a VBA method that goes thru and calculates a bunch of stuff and puts this calculated info into a static data structure. This method is called 'setProjectInfo()'. This method is reliant on values on my worksheets, So as the user makes changes to the worksheet, I want setProjectInfo() to get called so it refreshes the data structure with updated information. I then have a bunch of helper methods to access different parts of this data structure. These helper methods are used in the formulae of a bunch of cells on a worksheet (ie '=getPercentComplete(period)', etc, etc).
This is all working well except for one thing. Sometimes the helper methods get called BEFORE setProjectInfo() gets called.. So, the helper methods return stale information. I can only get around this by manually recalculating the spreadsheet again. setProjectInfo() does enough stuff and takes a long enough time that I don't want to have to call it at the top of each helper method.
I've put the call to setProjectInfo() in a cell formula at the top of the my spreadsheet in hopes that Excel would know enough to call it first.. But that does not seem to work. Net, how can I get VBA to always call setProjectInfo() BEFORE it calls any other VBA methods?
I have a workbook which is set up to take an average heart rate of a participant from a series of data points. I have set the spreadsheet up before I have collected some of the data. (so I can review the project at the 3 months period and its an ongoing project).
The problem is that if there is no data in a participants column then excel correctly gives you readout of “#DIV//0!”. On my results page this #DIV//0!” makes it hard to read the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get excel to turn #DIV//0!” to “0” or even turn it to a blank cell?
I have a sheet that will not let me use macros. I can record them, but when I go to use them it says that the Macro security level is too high. I change it to Medium or Low but it doesn't make a difference.
The same spreadsheet works with Macros on another computer, but not my main one.
I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.
I have a spreadsheet that I regularly have to clear the data and start over on, so i recorded a macro for clearing this rather long sheet with only one cllick.
My problem is that i am not the only person who will use this sheet, if They click the control button by mistake they will clear their work and you cannot undo it. I was wondering if i could make it ask "are you sure" kind of like the save option when closing an unsaved document.
i am going to ask is for my curiosity only and to be sure that no one will break my password. If the VBA module is locked for viewing and password protected, it can't be cracked??I asking this, because i made an excel application with macros, and i don't want the user of it to crack my password. I have to mention that the password is 17 letter+spaces long. I repeat again....i asked this ONLY for my application safety.
If I have a cell which has been validated and has a drop down list of 4 names in it. I need it to prompt the user that when they choose there name and select, a window pop up or similar window appears asking for a 4 digit(or similar) code.
This is to stop others using peoples names against jobs they have completed so there is accountability if there are issues with information.
For each line I need it to re-prompt the user to enter the 4 digit pin so it cannot be tampered with.
Can anyone help with sending through a form and VB code possibly which I can copy into my spread sheet or a method I can use!
There are 2 cells on my spreadsheet where individuals must populate $ values. I want to put a security feature in the worksheet that would create a pop up warning to the user that one cell must be greater than the other.
B26 (Client Assets) must be greater than B41 (Dollar Impact), otherwise a dialog box pops up to indicate to the user that B41 cannot be greater than B26.
