Open In A Simple Window

Nov 8, 2007

Is there a way that I can make an excel sheet and save it in a way that when it's opened the person JUST sees the cells in a really simple window...

Not sure if I'm confusing people in how I explain this... but basically I don't want it to show the scroll bars, the A B C D etc and 1 2 3 4 etc, the tool bars... etc. JUST the specified cells in a sheet.

Trying To Open New Outlook Mail Window

Jan 25, 2014

So, I've been trying to work out a distribution list. So far, my research has shown me how to code to be able to send a message through outlook by typing content into a spreadsheet, but I'm trying to find code that will simply open a new message window in outlook. I don't want to send it through excel as I've found to be possible b/c outlook is asking for permission to send to each recipient on the mailing list and we have a fairly large staff here, so clicking that button 20 times to allow the email to go through is more labor intensive than just verifying who's on the distribution list and sending.

Getting Window Handle Of All Open Workbooks?

Apr 10, 2004

I am trying to get the caption that is displayed on each window of all the open workbooks. I am using the code below to loop through all the workbook windows, get their handles and finally display their respective captions on a Msgbox.I am having 2 problems:

1- The code loops only once instead of once for each open workbook !

2- The Msgbox displays an empty string instead of the workbook caption !

If I am not mistaken, problem 2 is due to the fact that the Class name"EXCEL7" used in the code refers to a worksheet and not to a workbook. The trouble is I can't figure out what a Workbook Class name is so that I can use it in the FindWindowEx Function

Code:

Private Declare Function FindWindowEx Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowExA" _
(ByVal hWnd1 As Long, ByVal hWnd2 As Long, ByVal lpsz1 As String, ByVal lpsz2 As String) As Long[code]......

Check To See If File Is Open, And If It Is Open, Activate It

May 14, 2009

I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".

When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:

Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Check If Workbook Already Open

Aug 19, 2006

I have to files and a macro which copies data from one file to the other. The code goes as follows:

Sub test()

Range("A2").Activate

ActiveCell.Copy

ChDir "D:"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="D: est2.xls"

Range("B1").Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub

Everything is ok as long as the second file (test2) - the one data is copied to, is closed the moment the macro starts acting. The problem is: when test2.xls was opened before the macro was activated a window pops up saying that all unsaved data in test2.xls would be lost.

The best thing to do is to write a piece of code stating that : if the target file is closed then the macro should open it and do its stuff, but if the target file is already opened than the macro should simply switch to the already opened workbook without trying to reopen it. All I need is a piece of code regulating that

Check .xla Workbook Is Open

Sep 23, 2006

Y have files that are stored as .xla files because they are standalone applications that just contain the code.

Y need to test if one .xla file is open and if so close it, so i'am able to open another one. Otherwise the APP withevents from both APP get all mixed up.

I'am actually doing it from vb.net 2005 and i 'am using latebinding.
But the code would be similar y guess.

Check If Workbook Is Open

Jan 3, 2007

I have a small group of excel files that I've tried to code to update a master file. I have borrowed code snippets and adapted the rest (still trying to learn). My appologies to those I borrowed from! I would give you full credit if I could remember who did what. Anyway, The files are on a network share folder and everything works perfectly for me, but when one of the people who this was disigned for tries to update it always says "File already open, please try again later." This message is built in to the code.

All the files are in the same shared folder (to make it easier for me) along with the master file.

Here is the code:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Const strMaster As String = "PMT_Master.xls"
Dim wbMaster As Workbook
Dim srcrng As Range
Dim destrng As Range
