Excel 2007 Macro - Runtime Error 1004 After Saving And Re-opening A File

Oct 25, 2009

I have an Excel file with utilizes macros to allow a user to enter names of people and then double click on cells to enter ratings via radio buttons. When I open a blank file and enable the macros, I can add users, rate their skills using the radio buttons, etc. with no issue. I then SaveAs the file and continue working on it. once I Save and CLOSE the file, then go to re-open it, the trouble begins. Keep in mind, there is no alteration to the macros directly. Just entering data and using the form as intended. Here's what happens.

I reopen the file.I enter in the name of a person on one line.  I go to the first box - double click on it.It is supposed to pop up a dialog box which allows me to choose a rating via radio button (as I had been doing before I closed the file).  Instead, in that first column of ratings, it instead gives me the following error:

Runtime error '1004'Unable to set the LineStyle property of the Border class

When I hit "debug" this is the code it points to:

If ActiveCell.Column = leftb Then Range(Cells(ActiveCell.Row, leftb), Cells(ActiveCell.Row, rightb + 1)).Borders(xlEdgeTop).LineStyle = xlContinuous I have no idea why this would not work when I re-open the file!

note that when I go to click on the subsequent cells (there are 8 cells in which you provide ratings, moving across the columns with each cell) - the 2nd through 8th cells function fine. The dialog box pops up, the rating can be selected.  it's just the FIRST cell that gives the issue What would possibly be the cause of this? We need users of this form to be able to save, close, and re-open it if needed.


VB Runtime Error 1004 - Excel File - Save ?

May 27, 2008

Here are some important facts:

This code works (no Error 1004 on numerous laptops and desktops) A couple of months ago it began to fail (Error 1004 reared it's ugly head) on a couple of machines. The users claim that nothing changed - I can neither confirm nor deny accuracy of these claims. All users, except one, are running Windows XP and Office 2003. The problem also surfaced on a new machine running Windows XP and Office 2007. I could not force the error on my development/test machine - Windows XP with Offic 2003. It fails every time on another machine I have running Vista with Office 2007

The following is the code that causes me the problem.  I know the error is raised on the WB.Save statement. I added the error trap to eliminate the problem of the Excel file being unaccessable without a reboot, due to the fact that Windows thought Excel still had it open.

Excel 2007 Macro Opens Access Db But Then It Disappears?

Sep 24, 2009

This code worked fine in Excel 2003, but since upgrading to Excel 2007 (Office 2007) it's not working.  In Excel 2003 it opened the access db form and stayed open.  In Excel 2007, you can see the db open, then the form, but then it immediately closes.  I've checked to code and it still works fine in 2003. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?  Here's the code:

Sub OpenDatabase()
Set a = CreateObject("Access.Application")
strDB = "C:Weekly FilesWeekly Db.accdb"

Office Automation :: Run Excel 2007 Macro From Custom Button

Jun 10, 2009

I have used Visual Studio 2008 (VB) to create a custom tab and button group with custom buttons. When any of those buttons are clicked, I simply want to run a macro (add-in) that will already be loaded when Excel is launched. The main examples I've seen create an Excel object in the VB code and then call the macro, but that seems like unnecessary overhead, since the custom buttons are are already loaded into Excel.

Error Opening Excel File From .net 2010?

Aug 26, 2009

Dim excel As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application()
Dim wb As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook = excel.Workbooks.Open(txtFileLocations.Lines(w))
Dim ws As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet = TryCast(excel.ActiveSheet, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet)

when the program tries to opens an excel file, it always throws me an error "Office has detected a problem with this file. Editing may hard your computer" and my program crushes.......The problem appears on the SECOND line, on DIM wb...blahblah.. i went to the office and unclicked the "protected view" checkboxes.. but it still throws me those errors. my guess is that the office i have in the computer is not the same as the one that my program uses to open excel files (i mean, i loaded/imported some excel.dll files in the program so i guess that will be the one) But how do i make the program not care if the excel file is "potentially dangerous"?

Another OPTIMIZING Macro Vba Code For Excel 2007 - The Code Is A Sort Of Transposer For Data

Sep 9, 2011

this code was not done by me originally and there are some thigns here i dont quite understand i have altered it a bit from my coworkers code to suit my data and it works. but too slow. and when i have 4000+kb excel files it might freeze altogether. ( I have checked tho that when and after this transposer runs it will still be within the excel row limit, i had done calculations before and made a macro to automatically split excel files based on number of columns and rows to make sure this is so ). This code seems to start out fast then goes slower the longer it runs. at least this is what it seems liek to me.

I am having a problem with using the SQL Server 2008 FileStream function with an Excel 2007 spreadsheet. I can store an Excel 2003 format spreadsheet and bring it back with no problem. When I bring the Excel 2007 format spreadsheet back from the DB I get a message that there are errors in opening the Spreadsheet and the Excel App asks if I want them repaired before it is displayed. I answer yes and the Spreadsheet is renedered perfectly. Could this be a FileStream problem or an Excel 2007 problem?

Quit An Excel Macro Externally (from A GUI Not From Macro)

Oct 21, 2010

I'm have a program (GUI) that interfaces with excel to execute macros. We're using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel to call/run the macros and this works great.What I can't figure out is a good way to cancel the macros from the GUI.One idea we had was to use the excel.application variable that runs the macros to write a "stop" value to a specific cell in the workbook, and in the macros (they are all mostly loops), check for the "stop" value in that cell. This crashes my GUI with this The program '[2188] BVLReports.vshost.exe: Managed' has exited with code -336589910 (0xebf00baa).And excel gets tied up, and won't respond. I know how to Exit Sub from within the macro if the "stop" value exists, so I don't need answers on how to check/cancel from inside the macro. Any ideas on a better way to write this "stop" value or a better way to cancel the macros externally?

Automating Process Of Opening MPP File And Saving It As CSV?

Mar 12, 2012

I need to find a way to automate the process when a user uploads a microsoft project file to a web application I already have created. The process will need to basically use the save as from project to save into a .csv file so I can use this to import the data to an SQL database (this is needed for custom reporting we already have set up using SQL). I need to automate this process because I will be receiving tons of project files, and if the process is automated the users will then be able to instantly see results.

Basically, is there any way to create or run an automated process that will save these project files as .csv files? Even if the csv files are not formatted correctly, I can find a way around that, just need to first get them into .csv files. The only way I could think of this is to follow the instructions listed below, but I would then need to automate a process to open the file and hit save so this works... [URL]

I want to link these files to an Access database within my form, but Access does not recognize this file format.I attempted to create several programs in Studio to convert the file to an XLSX file, but on each attempt I receive an error the file is an in unrecognizable format which is killing me at the moment.

Excel File Save In Office 2007 Format?

I'm developing a small application that creates Excel files with user details. I'm developing this in vb.net 2008 express edition under Windows XP SP2 and with Office 2003.My target PC is running Windows Vista. I'm able to run my program without any problem and even the Excel files get created without any problem on this PC.However, the problem is when I try to open one of these created files in Vista, I get a message like below:

"The file you are trying to open, "TestMe.xls", is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?" If I click yes, it opens up properly. This is a headache as it opens up in my developing PC without any hassle. I'm sure its something to do with the Excel reference I've made in my PC (which is running Office 2003).How best can I save this file so it opens up in Excel 2007 without the above message.
