Minimize Outlook

Feb 13, 2007

I have vba code that opens Outlook so I can run code to send emails...

Application.ActivateMicrosoftApp (xlMicrosoftMail)

But I don't want it to be visible, I want it to be minimized.
If I try:

Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
olApp.WindowState = xlMinimized

I get an error "Object doesn't support this property or method" referring to:

olApp.WindowState = xlMinimized

I've tried:

Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

followed later with code to send emails,

Set objol = New Outlook.Application
Set objmail = objol.createitem(olmailitem)
With objmail
.To = EMTo
.cc = EMCC
.Subject = EMSubject
.Body = EMBody
.NoAging = True
.Attachments.Add EMFile
End With

But I get an error "You don't have appropriate permission to perform this operation" referring to:

Set objmail = objol.createitem(olmailitem)

Because of the way our network is designed, the only code that works to send emails is:

Application.ActivateMicrosoftApp (xlMicrosoftMail)
Set objol = New Outlook.Application
Set objmail = objol.createitem(olmailitem)
With objmail
.To = EMTo
.cc = EMCC
.Subject = EMSubject
.Body = EMBody
.NoAging = True
.Attachments.Add EMFile
End With

but Outlook remains open the whole time the emails are being sent until it's closed by code later on.

Is there a way to minimize outlook AND use the code above?

Minimize Workbook On Userform Launch

Oct 24, 2006

Is there a way to minimize Excel when a userform is launched, so just the userform is showing? I've tried using "Application.WindowState = xlMinimized" in the UserForm initialization procedure, but it minimizes both the workbook/application and the UserForm. I can click on the Excel window on the taskbar and just the UserForm will display--which is the goal--but I'm hoping there's a way to do it automatically without needing to click the taskbar icon after it's minimized.

Minimize Macro File Size

Dec 18, 2007

I have an excel file that is about 1,400 kB in size. This file is the backend for a complex model with many inputs, and I now want to build a front end for it using userforms and VBA. However, when i created the first userform, my excel filesize blew out to about 7,000 kB. When I added all of my userforms (about 16 of them because there are lots of inputs, organised into categories), the filesize grew to 77,000 kB.

I have tried everything to reduce file size, including clearing all unused cells, avoiding pivot tables of any sort, and have also exported then re-imported all of my VBA modules and userforms. But the situtation stays the same: no userforms or VBA and my filesize is about 1,400kB, add in all the userforms, and filesize is 77,000 kB. Is there a way to keep file size down with userforms, or is that just the way it is? Is the only way to keep file size down to have a single userform, all questions on that one form, perhaps with visible and invisible controls depending on the 'page' of questions being viewed?

Minimize Excel Window But Keep It Visible In Taskbar

Jun 27, 2014

I'm working on an Excel workbook that is opened by a batch file, updates information, copy and pastes that information to PowerPoint, and closes itself after spending two minutes idle. This is all for an employee communication monitor that runs 24/7. However, I don't like that the Excel spreadsheet displays on the monitors for two minutes every time it opens and runs.

Right now I was using the bit of code below to minimize the workbook when it was done copying and pasting the information. It works fine for the monitors, but the application is not visible in the Taskbar.

Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.Visible = False
End Sub

Is there anyway to minimize the workbook while keeping the window visible in the taskbar?

Minimize Cost By Calculating Best Binomial Distribution

Apr 8, 2008

I'm working on a problem that calculates data using a binomial distribution. The data derived from the binomial distribution is then used to calculate a cost. I would like to minimize cost by changing the number of " reservations". Can excel solver do this or is it too complicated? I have attached the file with what I'm working on. (Changing E1 to minimize E2 while Cells A9:A102 are calculating a binomial distribution)

Automatically Minimize The 2007 Ribbon On Opening A Particular Workbook

Feb 22, 2009

I would like to be able to automatically minimize the Excel 2007 ribbon on opening a particular workbook. My preference is to be able to apply that minimization to certain worksheets only, but if that's not possible then minimizing the ribbons on all sheets in the workbook will be ok.

Will I also need a BeforeClose code as well to reinstate the ribbon so that it is visible when opening subsequent workbooks?

Minimize File Size Of Macro-enable Workbook?

Sep 9, 2012

I have a macro-enabled workbook, in sheet1 i have two columns Country and Codes, they are in column C and D respectively. I used vlookup formula in generating the codes of the countries pasted in column C, they are being looked-up in sheet2 in column C and D as well. I already have 100000+ rows in sheet 2 under column C and D that's why the file is now heavy. Is it possible to encode column C and D in sheet 2 but still can be looked-up? or is there any other way to minimize the file size.

Bring Excel Application Out Of Minimize Before Displaying Warning Message

May 27, 2014

I am using Windows 7 and have a piece of code that brings up a warning message after 20 minutes to warn the user they have been in a workbook for too long.

If they have the Excel application window minimized, is there a way to get Excel to take the application out of minimized mode into max screen, before revealing the message.

Currently when the warning message activates, the excel icon just flashes in the start bar. Some users may not see this.

Here is the code I have so far:

[Code] ....

I have already tried simply adding a piece of code with maximize screen, however this doesn't seem to work.

Minimize Userform And Give Focus To Immediate Next Window When Button Clicked

May 10, 2014

I currently have a small userform placed at the bottom right of the screen (with a command button on it) and this opens up on top of excel instances and other applications/windows and it is set so that you can't interact with anything except the userform.

I wanted to minimize the userform and give focus to immediate next window (can be excel or non excel applications) for 10 seconds and then activate/show the userform back again, when the "Button 1" on the userform is clicked.

I tried hiding the userform, but this doesn't give focus to the immediate next window. Below is the code

Private Sub Button_Click()
PauseApp (10)
End Sub

I could only find answers for adding minimize and maximize buttons to userform.

When the button is clicked, it should perform

Step a - Minimize the userform
Step b - Give focus to the next immediate window behind the userform
Step c - Wait for 10 seconds
Step d - Bring back the userform its to state.

Outlook Tasks

Oct 30, 2007

I have searched and think I have found what I need to create Outlook tasks from my Excel spreadsheet. I'm hoping that someone here can help me pull it together into something that will be usable in my project tracking spreadhsheet...

I try to keep track of milestones... these milestones are listed in column B of my spreadsheet and are in rows 10 through about 105

For each of my customers I then keep 4 columns D, E, F, G - H, I, J, K - L,M,N,O - etc. Each group of 4 is a different customer....

The customer's first column (D, H, L, etc.) is a Due date of the Milestone that is found in column B.
The second column is a check box that I use to indicate when the milestone is complete
The 3rd column is the completion date
The last colum is just a filler space that helps to separate each customer.

What I would like to do is insert a button at the bottom of EACH grouping of 4 that when pressed would look at the first column for the customer group and for ANY Milestone that has a DUE date process the stuff in the VB below to create an OUTLOOK task for each item that has a DUE date. (It would be conceivable that as it stepped through each row for a customer group of columns that I could have it create 90+ Tasks in Outlook.

A couple of additional things... in row 110 for the first column of the customer I have a DATE or a blank. So for example in D110 it might be blank or a date like 10/29/2007. If it is blank then when I press the button it would loop through ADD the tasks for each row with a due date. If row 110 has a DATE I would get a popup indicating that the tasks are already in OUTLOOK and that they were added on whatever the date is in row 110... This is kind of the safeguard that I don't get the same group of tasks multiple times by pressing the button by mistake.

How To Outlook Email In HTML

Jun 26, 2014

Below I have my code that works great. What I would like to do is make it pull the .HTMLBody from a cell value instead of inbeded in the code so users can change, just like to I have it below for who I am sending it to. The issue is if I do it the same way I loose my signature and the font, size and color I have below. How can I do this.

range("P16") would be the 1st line of the mesage
range("P17") would be the 2nd line of the mesage
range("P18") would be the 3rd line of the mesage

All the sendkeys below copy a range and paste it below my message as a picture currently. That is fine.
