Check If Outlook Running In VBA

Nov 13, 2008

I am trying to establish if Outlook 2000 is currently running in VBA , I have tried the following code but this only works when the user is actually positioned in "Inbox - Microsoft Outlook" etc. At this point I don't really care where/what the user has open in Outlook but merely to check if outlook is running.

I have tried below but does not work robustly enough.
I have also tried AppActivate("Microsoft Outlook")
I have also tried IsRunning("Outlook.Application") which does not even compile.

Dim OutlookErr, OutlookBox
On Error GoTo OutlookIsNotRunning
AppActivate ("outlook")
GoTo now_send_email


OutlookErr = "Outlook is either not open or busy with another task." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
OutlookErr = OutlookErr & "Please Open Outlook, Close any draft emails," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
OutlookErr = OutlookErr & "the Global Address List or other activities and try again."
OutlookBox = MsgBox(OutlookErr, vbCritical, "Unable to access Outlook to send email")
Exit Sub

Prevent Email Code From Opening New Instance Of Outlook Every Time

Aug 28, 2013

the code always opens a new instance of Outlook even though one may already be open. If left unchecked I may have like 30 instances open if I leave the computer for a few hours. So I was wondering is there some snippet of code I can add in here to check if excel is open first and if so do not open a new instance?

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
On Error Resume Next
' Change the mail address and subject in the macro before you run it.
With OutMail
.To = "xxxx@live.com"

Excel Instance Doesn't Close When Running Macro From Script

Jul 8, 2014

I have a VBS script that runs a macro in a workbook that is located in a SharePoint doc lib. The code looks like this:


I use code exactly like this to run other queries and it works great, but for some reason when I run this macro the instance of Excel doesn't end after the script is done running. I can see EXCEL.EXE sitting in the Task Manager and I have to end it manually.

Here is the code for the macro and related macros:

This macro just calls my other macros. Each terrslicersXX macro is a different sales territory for which there are slicers to filter out data.


An example of one of the sales territory slicers. Basically it just sets the slicer for the required sales territory so the SaveAsWebpage macro can save the information off as a webpage.


Saves the current data as a webpage.

[Code] ....

I have a feeling it has something to do with the last macro and how I publish the sheet as a webpage but I still can't get it to work.

Calculate From Last Instance Ignore Blanks To Maintain Running Total

Aug 6, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that is tracking a MTD receivables (running total). When it comes to weekends or day's when their were no receivables the running total needs to reference the last working day or the last receivable entry to perform its calculations for that day.

So in the table below (couldn't post attachment) the first row(1) = days of week , second row (2) = running MTD totals and the 3rd row (reference cells). So for Wednesday I our totals were 9995 which I entered in Row 3 (column A) and called it to Row 2 (column A). For Thursday I called Row 3 (column b which was known and manually entered) and subtracted Row 3 (column A) and populated Row 2 (column b). So my equation to in Row 2 column b is simple as =sum(b2-b1)

This is ok but when the weekend (or days not worked) come in to play you can see it produces a negative for Saturday / Sunday. Saturday took 15,707 and subtracted it from nothing (row 3 column d) since there were no receivables on Saturday.

So I need a formula that will calculate from the last instance while ignoring blank cells.

Check Active Cell Before Running Code

Dec 14, 2007

I have a macro that is intdended to run after the user has selected a cell in column A:A (any position except A1)

Once the user has selected their desired cell, they press a button and the macro runs.

Occasionally a user will press the button without selecting a cell in the proper column.

I would like a message box to pop up to tell the user "Please select an account in Column A" and bump the cursor (active cell) to A2 so at least it's in the right column to help get them started.

VBA Outlook Email Auto-send Routine - Check If There Any Attachments In Email To Be Sent

Jul 23, 2014

I have a macro to send emails to a group people that based on various criteria, it will attach a number of files to a recipient's particular email. This is a small portion of the code that does the attachment adding:

If Range("B" & a) = "Y" Then
If citChev "" Then .Attachments.Add citChev
End If
If Range("C" & a) = "Y" Then
If citMits "" Then .Attachments.Add citMits
End If
If Range("D" & a) = "Y" Then
If citToyo "" Then .Attachments.Add citToyo
End If
If Range("E" & a) = "Y" Then


Most people get several of the files attached to their email and all works fine. But, there are certain conditions when all the IF() stmts fail where a recipient will not get any files attached. I do not want to send the email if this is the case, but it currently is sending it.

Is there a way after all the IF() stmts have processed to check to see if this current email has any attachments assigned to it? (IF .Attachments "" Then...) does not work.

Add 2 Instance >=.01 Of First Instance Of >=.01

Jul 29, 2006

I have the following
Private Sub test2()
Dim c As Range, t As Long

With Worksheets(3)
Set c = Range("AO10", cells(Rows.Count, "AO").End(xlUp))
t = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max((Application.WorksheetFunction. CountIf(c, ">=.01") * 2), 0)
Sheets("Template").Range("D3").value = t
'Range("D3") = t
End With
End Sub

The code is suppose to get the value of >= 1 percent from AO10 then go down the column until it finds the second instance and then add that number to the tile.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Have a great Friday all! : D

Returning First Instance Of Zero

Jan 8, 2009

I am trying to create a formula that will search a row left to right for the first instance of zero and return the corresponding column label. I had this working for a smaller table using a couple of hidden columns with nested ifs however the new data set is approximately 25 columns wide and it will get very messy using the same approach. See attached sample with desired results.

VLOOKUP - Last Instance

Aug 11, 2009

Using Excel 2003 SP2. The formula =vlookup("apple",table,2,false) would return the data in the second column of the array named "table" for the FIRST INSTANCE it comes across for the word "apple." Is there a formula to have it return data for the LAST INSTANCE? This is one where I say to myself "Self, there has got to be a way to do this," but I just can't figure out what it might be.

One Instance Of Each Value Within Text Range

Jul 10, 2014

I have a list of text cells in column A, the list is a dynamic one that changes depending on the property selected in a cell of another sheet.

Example data... Column A is Block Name, Column B is Room Number.

1--Main Building-------001
2--Block A--------------001
3--Block A--------------002
4--Main Building-------002
5--Block B--------------001
6--Block A--------------003
7--Main Building-------002a
8--BSS House----------BSS
9--Main Building-------003

What I need is for a formula that lists one example of each instance included in Column A.

As per the example data above, the expected results when dragging down from C1 through to C9 would be:

1--Main Building-------001-------Main Building
2--Block A--------------001-------Block A
3--Block A--------------002-------Block B
4--Main Building-------002-------BSS House
5--Block B--------------001-------
6--Block A--------------003-------
7--Main Building-------002a-------
8--BSS House----------BSS-------
9--Main Building-------003-------

I know I could use a pivot table to do this but as I need this to be dynamic, and also to be used with Excel on an iPad Air, I can't as it doesn't support pivot tables or VB to automatically refresh it.

Switch Between New Instance Windows?

Nov 15, 2011

Im having trouble switching between windows that are open in separate instances of excel.

I used to be able to switch easily between these workbooks when they were both being being run in the same instance of excel.

But since having to change it so the workbooks are opened in seperate instances, i cannot get it to work, the code just fails when it trys to activate the first window.

I currently have the below code:


Sub CloseAndSave()
Application.EnableEvents = True
'//Activate InfoHub workbook and put a tick in the checkbox.
Workbooks("403 InfoHub.xls").Activate
Sheets("HOME PAGE").ToggleButton1.Value = True


Is there anyway to do this?
