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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
programming in VBA as compared to python, java, and c++. My question is relatively simple. I have a listbox that I want to populate. I've figured out how to populate it using the ListFillRange, but can't figure how to populate so that I have a list of items, but doubles or repeats don't show up. 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.
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.
creating a button (using VBA code) in a excel worksheet that can initiate a range of output data in a col (say (C1:C100)) by activating the therein formula of each cell (same as what F2 does) and then entering the cell.
Actually I have to do manually each time for each output cell after opening the worksheet that I don't want.
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.
I have this request excel sheet which needs a button to do multi functions:
First the sheet is placed in remote server and had two working sheets (say sheet 1 and sheet two), in sheet one there are fields must be filled by the user and a sequence number must be issued for each request.
1- when the button clicked the request serial number must be added by one (counter). 2- log the new serial number, user name and datetime in sheet 2. 3-save the sheet on local pc 4- disable the button after click so that the user could not click the button twice for one request.
Is it possible to create a button in or out of a cell and when that is clicked it will generate a new sheet in the same workbook.
Now this is throwing the line to you clever people... Having then created a new sheet can it be that in say A:1 it will display the date the sheet was created AND make a popup box appear to allow the user to enter a name for the new sheet?
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.
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.
All, I am trying to generate a print button that prints a specific range without using macros. Is it possible? Currently I am using Follow Hyperlink Sheet Event to print the desired range, this works fine but I want to completely lose the macros in spread sheet.
I want to write a macro , which creates a form and once the user double click the form i get a popup message "hello" , but when i run my code i get compile error : Sub or function not defined for the line Sub one().
This is the code on my module:
Sub one() CommandButton1_Click End Sub
And this is the code i get when i double click the button
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() msg "hello" End Sub
I have 1 sheet where in sheet 2 i have two type data and that is 1 level service data and 2 level service data. In sheet 1 i wanted 2 buttons that is 1 level service button and 2 level service button. and i wanted that if i will click on 1 level service button it iwll give me the 1 level service data from sheet 2.
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.
I have five worksheets among eight total in my workbook that I use as a report. I would like to have a button that copies those five particular worksheets into a new workbook and pastes all numbers as un-linked values. This would save me a TREMENDOUS amount of time generating my reports every month.
