How Do I Create A Button In Xl07 Ribbon For Add In

Jan 24, 2009

I have a workbook that has a userform with some simple code to translate formulas from .FormulaLocal to .Formula, and back.

I use that workbook a lot to translate formulas I find on here to something my German XL2007 will understand. I thought it would be neat, as well as giving me the opportunity to learn something new, to have that functionality as an add-in, rather than having the workbook open all the time. It is easy enough to save the wb as an add-in, and I can see it in my add-in list, install or un-install it. What i can't figure out is how to put a button on the xl07 ribbon when the add in is installed so i can access it.

Create Command Button And Run From The Ribbon?

Mar 17, 2009

Is it true that I have to enable macro and choose to trust access to the VBA project object model in order to create and run macros? It seems there is some security risk associated with making the workbook as macro enabled. What makes the commands run from the ribbon security free? Is it true that we can work around the macro security concern by creating a command button to the ribbon and run the macro from the command button? If yes, how come I could not find any discussion of creating the command buttons? I am using Excel 2007.

Custom Ribbon Button To Load Add-In?

Aug 8, 2013

I have a pretty developed add-in I've created for use at work. It has 3 full custom ribbon tabs worth of buttons and boxes and other features that run all of the macros in the project. Everyone loves it. The only problem is, its only used when we work with customer statement excel files. When using Excel for other tasks it is annoying to have 3 extra, essentially useless tabs taking up space on the ribbon.

Is it possible to create a button and stick it on, say the Data tab, that will "Start" the add-in and make the 3 custom tabs visible? Ideally there would also be a button to "Close" the add-in or hide the extra tabs until they're needed as well, but how to customize for my specific needs.

Move Or Place Command Button Onto Ribbon?

Jun 4, 2012

I'm making a Userform for commands I use a lot, like concatenation and highlighting cells. I placed a command button on the sheet that pops up whenever I open Excel. It's a bit awkward to have it on the sheet. Is there a way to place the button on the ribbon to get it out of the way? (I'm on an intermediary level with VBA

Another alternative would be to make a hide button on the userform, I guess. Once it disappears though I'd probably need another button to call it up again.

Excel 2007 :: Make Button In Ribbon Menus To Run Macro?

Aug 9, 2013

I've been trying to research how to do this for a while now and still can't figure it out. My impression is that this is fairly straightforward in Excel 2010 since the menus and ribbons are easily customizable but not so in Excel 2007.

So far I can get macro shown as a button in the Quick Access Toolbar. But the issue is that I can't organize them or customize the icons.

Is there an accepted practice for this?

I have a list of 1's, 2's, 3's, and 4's and I only want 1, 2,3,4 showing up as well as any additional numbers added to the list.

Create A Button

Oct 29, 2008

I have a userform, with a save button.

The Save button transfers data from my userform to a worksheet via variables.

It then proceeds to use the variables to generate further data, dependant on a combination of the variables, as this process creates a row of data on the first available empty row, as this script is being used in a loop, ie add another record yes or no.

I need to incorporate a method whereby the user at any point can click on cell S(x) where (x) corresponds to the row clicked, which will then run a macro which will allow me to change a value from OPEN to CLOSED and also add a userentered date into a field called DATECLOSED, it is imperative that this process only work on the row in question.

Macro To Create A Button

Dec 28, 2011

I have the following code:


Sub AddFormsButton()
Dim sShape As Shape
With Range("J1")
Set sShape = Sheets("Exposure Country").Shapes.AddFormControl _
(Type:=xlButtonControl, Left:=.Left, Top:=.Top, Width:=96, Height:=20)
End With


Which is called within another macro and inserts a button onto sheet Exposure Country, after which the macro it was called from then stops (i.e. End Sub)

What I would like is that when the user clicks on this button it selects another sheet but I'm not sure how to achieve this.

Create A Clear/reset Button?

Sep 3, 2009

I'm just finishing a project that is a collection of three calculators, each of which returns data based on a series of user-supplied variables. All the mechanics are working [thanks in part to replies to previous posts], but there is one more thing I'd like to add:

Does anyone have a way to clear the contents of another cell [actually several] cells via another cell? As the most complex calculator requires eight variables to be entered, I'd like to provide a quick way [a button?] to "clear" or "reset" the calculator - basically wipe all unlocked cells. I should note that all of the cells in question already have Data Validation of one type or another.

Macro Button To Create New Line?

Oct 7, 2009

I have 2 tabs on my spreadsheet. The first has some text at the top in cells A1 and A2, and that's it. The second tab I need a script for. Basically, I need some sort of macro button and a text box. I want people to be able to type some text in a cell or box on the 2nd tab, hit a button, and the text that has just been typed will be copied and pasted in to the next available cell down on the first tab.

For example, say the 1st tab had 'title' written in cell A1, and 'hello' written in cell A2. If I were to go to the 2nd tab, type 'bonjour' in to a cell or text box, and hit a button, the text 'bonjour' would be copied, the script would read the 1st tab and see that cells A1 and A2 already had text in them, and so paste 'bonjour' in to cell A3.

Create New Worksheets From Button/link

Jan 17, 2007

on a workbook I use.

The workbook (26-11GL.xls) contains a varying number of sheets.
Sheet 1 - Menu
Sheet 2 - DS1
Sheet 3 -DS2
Sheet 4 -DS3
Sheet 5 - DS4
Sheet 6 - Company1
Sheet 7 - Company2
Sheet 8 - Company3
Sheet 9 ....14 Company 4,5 etc
Sheet 15 - CompanyTotals

What I would like to do is when I open the workbook on the Menu page I would like to have some links / buttons that will automatically create a new worksheet called DS5 which has all the formatting, formulas etc from DS4 (or the last complete DS sheet)
If this is possible I would like to be able to add Company worksheets as both DS sheets and company sheets can have from 3 to 35 sheets in either area.

If possible I would like the new DS sheets to be named with the next valid number.
