Create Command Button And Run From The Ribbon?

Mar 17, 2009

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.

Custom Ribbon Button To Load Add-In?

Aug 8, 2013

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.

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.

Move Or Place Command Button Onto Ribbon?

Jun 4, 2012

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.

Excel 2007 :: Make Button In Ribbon Menus To Run Macro?

Aug 9, 2013

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.

Is there an accepted practice for this?

Creating A Print Button Using VB

May 17, 2007

I have been given a workbook that contains say 10 sheets. The first sheet is a summary sheet that will contain a 'Print' button. The idea is that when the Print button is selected all the sheets that's have been filled out will be printed.

For example.

I have a workbook that has 10 sheets to fill out. The user has filled out 7 out of the 10 sheets and when selecting the Print button, I require only the 7 completed sheets to print.

I thought the best way to go about this was to look at 1 particular cell on each sheet. If the cell is blank, do not print the sheet, otherwise do so.

Creating A Listbox And Button In VB

Jul 25, 2008

I want to be able to have a listbox on a sheet (whether this is already on the sheet or created by a macro I don't care), and have a button next to it. Once the list box has been filled in (with multiple selections) I want the user to press the button, the list box and button disappears and the items selected in the list box are placed into consecutive cells underneath each other.

First problem: To start with I have tried to create the listbox and button using VB

Sub lbtest()

Dim lb As Object, ButCon As Object

Set lb = Sheets("Sheet1").Shapes.AddFormControl(xlListBox, 100, 100, 150, 100)
lb.ControlFormat.MultiSelect = xlSimple
lb.ControlFormat.ListFillRange = "M1:M8"
Set ButCon = Sheets("Sheet1").Shapes.AddFormControl(xlButtonControl, 255, 100, 100, 25)
With ButCon
.OnAction = "Inactive"
.PrintObject = False
End With

Creating A Button To Move To The Next Tab

May 29, 2007

Iím trying to create a Forward button for each of the sheets in my Excel workbook, to make it easier for users to move from one tab to the next (without having to click on the tab- names in the bottom left corner of Excel). I know itís very simple to start recording a macro and click on the next tab, and repeat this process for all the tabs in the spreadsheet. But what if you have a workbook with, say, 20 tabs Ė would you have to record one macro to take you from Sheet 1 to Sheet 2, another to move you from Sheet 2 to Sheet 3, and so on all the way up to Sheet 20? This would be very time-consuming. Is there some VBA code which always moves you to the next available tab in the workbook? Or is there no alternative to recording a separate macro for each individual tab?

Creating Button To Save Output Value?

Apr 9, 2014

My sheet has a calculator that outputs a value based on inputs. I also have a pick list on top labeled Q1-Q4. Depending on which value is selected on the picklist, the input values will output a different amount. I want to create a button which allows me to take this output and save it in another cell under a heading Q1, Q2 etc. depending on which Q was selected in the original picklist. In essence I want a button that records each output onto the same sheet by by quarter(Q).

() Creating A Search Command Button (Macro)

Feb 5, 2009

I am trying to create a uniform stock database for my company. Thus far, I have 2 worksheets. The first is a face sheet, for the user to interact with. This face sheet has a number of drop down menus on it allowing them to select "Type" and "Size" of the item they need. This information is then translated (by a hidden table) into an item code.

The second sheet contains a list of all the uniform items currently in stock. Each item has its individual code that correlates to the code the face sheet generates.

My question is regarding a search macro.

I want the user to be able to click a command button on the face sheet, labelled "search". This would then take the generated "Item Code" and search for it on the second worksheet. I am aware that it would be very easy for them to simply copy the code into "find" on the second sheet, however it needs to be as easy and quick to use as possible.

Creating A Custom Button When I Install My Self-made Add-in

Apr 16, 2006

Finally after 3 days of intensive studying VBA, my first add-in pack is ready to be installed in the office. I've got my custom form all ready, now all I need is to have excel create a custom button on the toolbar that calls up my custom form when clicked.

The idea of assigning a shortcut key doesn't really appeal to me. I'll be packaging it up in .xla format. Would be greatful if anyone can direct me on how to add a button to call up my form (only one form in fact).

Creating Button To Generate Spreadsheet From Exported Data?

Jun 9, 2014

sample pic.png

I have two spreadsheets of data I export regularly from an outside source. I want to consolidate the data from these two sheets into one large sheet with all the data in a more concise form bringing in only the data related to certain parts I am conducting analysis on. I have a list of these parts already. My first thought on how to do this would be to use the list in an entry for an input box and have that list be the index for a for loop in which i searched for a part code, copied the entire corresponding row, and pasted it back into the master sheet. I have gone through and tried to do this but I am running into problems because sometimes I have multiple rows of data that correspond to a single part number. I have attached a template of the way that the data should look in the master file with the multiple rows of details that correspond to just one part entry.

Creating "Find" Button On Userform For Editing Data

May 9, 2009

I've created a userform following the tutorial And a Find button which reads a string from a textbox, searches for it on the worksheet, and then displays the data for that row in the userform. I'm trying to work out how to do "Find Next", and it seems complicated. I know there are other techniques, such as filtering, or displaying all the found data in a dialog for user to choose which one to edit. But these are not suitable for my project. Here's the code for my Find button

Creating A Macro, That Creates A New Button, Which Itself Runs A Macro..

Dec 15, 2009

I have a long complicated macro that processes a ton of data and gives the output in a new sheet. I then want to create new buttons (or some sort of user clickable triggers) on this new sheet that runs another macro.

I have got the actual adding of buttons in the sheet working, but I can't find a way to automatically assign macros to newly generated buttons during runtime. Is this even possible (or are there any clever tricks I could use to get around this?)
