Multiple Spreadsheets Share The Same Macro

Feb 3, 2010

I currently have a macro that can be used by multiple spreadsheets. Is there that I can execute the macro within any specific spreadsheet without saving it in each spreadsheet. I just want to place it in a general spot so that in case there is modifications, I only have to change it in one place.

Share Spreadsheet With Multiple Users

Sep 11, 2007

I have a speadsheet, and at the moment, another spreadsheet access it via a vb code. but i have 3 - 5 agents needing it sometimes at the same time. All that happens, is the agents excel sheet passes some info to the server sheet, so the vb codes opens and closes it. So only one person can do it at the same time.. but i need this so anyone of the agents can enter info via the vb code.

When i tested it, it asked me when i opened it, if i wanted to save what the last person did, I need that not to come up, so really its like the sheet is always open, but not... and lines are added. The info is added to the same sheet, and line by line.

Share With Multiple Users Allowing Macros

Oct 9, 2008

I have a workbook that I would like to share and allow multiple users to add and make changes at the same time. However, the workbook is full of macros that really need to run. Is this possible? The workbook is written in excel 2003.

If this is not possible then is it possible to share the workbook in a similar fashion but not allow any other users to make changes, but update their workbook with the changes that I make?

Share A Toolbar That Calls Macro From An Add-in

Mar 14, 2008

I have created some macros that need to be used in several workbooks by more than one users, so I put them in an add-in and gave them instructions on how to get the add-in. I also created a toolbar with buttons calling those macros, attached it to a workbook the users can open, and instructed them to open that workbook once to get the toolbar.

Both the add-in and the toolbar workbook are on a network drive that my users can access, but when they get the add-in, it gets copied to their own add-in folder.

Here's my problem:
When a user tries to click on one of the buttons in the toolbar, the button tries to call the macro using the path that would be valid on my computer to get to my add-in folder. This path includes my user name, so it doesn't go to their own add-in folder: it goes to my add-in folder on that computer if I ever logged in on that particular machine, or it goes nowhere.

When I created the button, I attached the macros by referring to the add-in workbook by name only, without referring to a path, so I don't know why MY path ended up defined on that toolbar.

How can I go around this? I manually relinked all the buttons for that user, and I can do it for the other users (there aren't that many users nor that many buttons), but I'd rather avoid it: I'll have to re-do it if the toolbar is updated and it just seems like more work than should be necessary.

I'm also opened to suggestions on a better way to share those macros. They can't be attached to the workbooks because we use new workbooks every year - they're emailed to us by the people who create them and for a variety of reasons, pasting everything into a workbook of our own is not a good option.

Unable To Share Macro As Add-in Or Template

May 4, 2007

I created a macro in VBA that pops up a calendar with keyboard short cut and places the date in selected cell. It works great on my pc. I can't share the macro with anyone. I saved it as an add-in...installing the add-in did nothing. Then I saved it as a template...the template did not open with any macros associated. both cases, no errors. no message to enable to disable macro.

Share Workbook With "Allow Changes By Multiple Users" Code

Aug 8, 2007

Although i am using VBS, the coding should be similar. I am looking for all Excel files in a folder (WORKING) and determining if they are shared, allowmultipleusers, (WORKING). The problem I am encountering is changing the Excel workbook to a [SHARED] workbook. By that I mean Multiple users can open and make changes. What is the syntax to enable that? As an FYI I can save the [SHARED] workbooks as exclusive (normal), but not the reverse. I have tried Saveas,,,,,,xlshared, but is not working. Here is the VBS code I have (For grins)

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
'Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace("L:Shared Services Stock Rotation ReviewRotations for Review")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace("C:Documents and Settingsmhast14DesktopRotations for Review")
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application") ..............

Switching Between Multiple Spreadsheets

Oct 23, 2007

I'm having a problem with how excel opens my files. Up until yesterday when I would open any of my spreadsheets they would open seperately. I would have multiple files open across my taskbar and could easily switch between files with a simple Alt-tab windows function.

Now when I open multiple excel files it opens them under "one" file so to speak. The only way to switch between files is if I go to Window>then select the file I want or minimize within excel so I can see the other spreadsheets.

Modify Multiple Spreadsheets At Once

Apr 28, 2008

i have admit forms for multiple patients, about 200 or so already done, and its set up to make an upload sheet, which we then add all of them to one big file to import to access. i am in the process of cleaning things up, but we need to add a formula to a cell to determine length of stay, and several similar things, but i'd like to not have to go and do it file by file.

is there any way to update all the files at once? some kind of automation? then changes would be in the same cell for each file.

or maybe some way to do a batch modify or something, so it can make the change, and run the two macros, one to make upload for file, one to dump it in the file that goes into access.

Inserting To Multiple Spreadsheets

Jun 20, 2008

after finishing a huge macro, the last step is to take row 1 of sheet 1 and insert it at the top of every worksheet.

This is the first way I tried it. It does absolutely nothing (except copy the row).

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
ws.Range("1:1").Insert Shift:=xlDown
Next ws
This was another try, which resulted in a 1004 "Select method failed" error

Copy From Multiple Spreadsheets

Dec 1, 2006

I have a workbook to collate ratings for staff, there are three sheets, one is a summary of data, and two are sheets that can have data entered into them, called "Eligible" and "Ineligible".

I would like to write a macro to search cells in "Eligible" that contain a staff number, and copy this data to "Summary". If excel encounters a blank cell, i.e it has no staff number in it, it will move to she sheet "Ineligible" and perform the same operation, pasting the data below that which has been copied from "Eligible"

To further complicate things, every time the macro runs to populate "Summary" I would like it to clear the existing data in "Summary", to allow for deletions in "Eligible" or "Ineligible".

Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting to show when an employee is both scheduled to be working for the current date, and is trained in a particular task.

I have a spreadsheet called "Training" for all of the tasks that employees can be trained in, with the employee names in each row, and the task names at the top of each column. The intersection of an employee's row with a task's column will have an "X" if the employee is trained in the task. This is the spreadsheet that I'd like to be formatted; if the employee is trained and also scheduled to be working, I'd like to the "X" to change to a different color.

There are separate spreadsheets within the same workbook for the schedule. This is a bit more complex since the since each week of the schedule has its own spreadsheet within the workbook; each spreadsheet is named for the Saturday of the week it is for, such as "06-07". I've been able to successfully have other formulas in the workbook auto-adjust to the current week's schedule by using variations on the TODAY function (something like INDIRECT("'"&(TEXT(TODAY()-MOD(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),1),7),"mm-dd"))), but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into conditional formatting. On each schedule sheet, there is a column for each day of the week and a row for each employee. The cell for a given day will contain the employee's schedule if they are scheduled, or it will be blank if they are not scheduled. So, the conditional formatting formula would just need to check to see if the appropriate cell was blank or not.

Updated Links To Multiple Spreadsheets

Oct 16, 2008

I have a master spreadsheet that links to various other spreadsheet for budget figures. I have now created and updated the budgets for the 2008/09 budget year.

It is painstaking to update the links and browse to the new files one at a time and point them to their new folder. Is there a way I can update all of the link workbooks to the new directory in one fell swoop?

Search And Compile Multiple Spreadsheets

Jul 6, 2013

The company deals with Machine services, we maintain, service and brake-fix machine problems, the machines are manufactured my ourselves and there are approximately 15 different machines.

We have a Field Service spreadsheet that is filled in by all service engineers for every job they go on, this is filled in with information like:-

Serial Number
Machine Type
Hours Run Time
Reason for Visit
Reported Problem
etc, etc

All the forms are identical so all the fields are identical

Field Service Record Spares 2013 Master Rev4 (2).xlsx (this is the correct file). The forms are then saved on a central server folder and stored in month order.

Is there a way of creating a master excel sheet to gather all the information from all the Field Service spreadsheets which would then allow me to search all sheets by serial number or fault, without me having to copy and paste all the information into the master sheet??

We have 10 service engineers and each fills out 1 sheet per job per week, so a 4 week job will have 4 sheets for 1 engineer. an engineer could go on 5 jobs in 1 week and would therefore fill out 5 sheets. so we could be looking at in excess of 500 Field Service spreadsheet per year.

I am attempting to amalgamate several (100+) spreadsheets into a single spreadsheet. The data is very simple (only three columns, several rows). I have written a simple macro to copy 5 spreadsheets (called TIMESHEET1, TIMESHEET2 etc) into 1 spreadsheet called AMALGAMATED TIMESHEETS. I would like to expand this using a FOR - NEXT loop if possible - or any other way that someone can think of! I cannot use the variable TIMESHEETx as this is not accepted......

Importing Macros Into Multiple Spreadsheets

Apr 19, 2007

Is there a way to automate the importing of macros into a list of files ? I have a number of files that I want to add some code to and was wondering if this could be automated as opposed to adding the code to each file manually as it's going to be a regular job.

I've written a routine to loop through the list of files and open them, I just want to know how, if possible, i can automatically import the required macros.
