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?


Run Excel Macro`s With .net?

Jun 11, 2011

I wrote a UDF to enable users to run Macro`s in excel here is the function below

Private Sub RunExcelMacros(ByVal Path As String, ByVal MacroName As String)
Dim oExcel As Excel.Application
Dim oBook As Excel.Workbook
Dim oBooks As Excel.Workbooks


And to use it just call the udf with the 2 parameters like below

RunExcelMacros("c:MyExcelBook.xls", "TheNetMacro")

just remember that you have to have an excel sheet with a macro named TheNetMacro or any other name you want to give it.

Creating A Macro In Excel Using Vb?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm creating a macro in excel using vb?What the macro is doing is checking if the row and column headers are same, and if it is then I want it to save the row header (the date in this case) AND the value (a number) into an array, and this is done in a for loop and goes on.... I dont know if I should use 2-D array or a 1-D array that stores 2 values....Not sure at all !Then after the outer most FOR LOOP is done, I want to print those values stored in the array.

Here is what I have so far, this works actually however i'm using 2 seperate arrays, one to store the row header (the date) and another array to store the value.  But really I want to make it simpler, shorter and use only one array that stores both of these values as we go through the for loop and at the end of the for loop, all the values from beginning which are stored can be printed out.

Here is my code :

Sub Test ()
Dim sys_arr() As String  ' declaring the array to store the values
Dim sys_date_arr() As String 'declaring the array to store the dates


This totally works but with 2 different arrays, all I want is just 1 single array (not sure if it is 2-dimensions or still stays as 1 dimension but with 2 different variables)... and then the array can store the date and variable correspondant to the date, and goes to the next row, and do same thing... So the output results should be like  for eg :

2/12/2010  37
2/13/2010  41
2/14/2010 66
and so forth

Macro In Excel - Increasing Values By 10 Percent

Apr 25, 2010

I'm guessing the reason this macro isn't doing what I want it to is because of an error on my part in the code. Basically, I want the values in the cells pointed out in the code to be increased by 10% each time the button is pushed.

Here is the code:
Sub Add10percent()
IncreaseColumnValuesBy10Percent 2, 0.1
IncreaseColumnValuesBy10Percent 4, 0.1
IncreaseColumnValuesBy10Percent 6, 0.1
IncreaseColumnValuesBy10Percent 8, 0.1

Excel 2007 Macro Opens Access Db But Then It Disappears?

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:

Find Repeated Keywork On A Cell - Excel Macro

Jun 29, 2012

On my VB excel macro, I am trying to create a code to search a key word on a specific row and to display the adjuscent 5 cells values in a text box. That keyword will be repeated here and there on that same row. But the adjuscent 5 cells value will be differ each time when the keyword matches.

For example: Row 20 has a word "We gave" (key word) in cell D20. I want a textbox to display the values of E20, F20, G20, H20, I20 in a text box. Then on cell M20, there will be another "We Gave". Then it should keep the value that it displayed in the text box earlier and to show the newer values of N20, O20, P20, Q20, R20.

Call/run Excel Macro Within A Separate Visual Studio Application?

Dec 14, 2010

I'm looking to call an excel macro (excel version 07) within a separate visual studio application (visual studio express 2010). Basically, a user clicks a browse dialog button to select a xls or xlsm file which is then added to a listbox. Next, I would like the macro to run when another button is clicked. The macro looks at the first column in excel and moves the listed .tif images from one folder to another. I referenced the excel libraries, but seem to be getting hung up on a few code statements (''''ERROR see code below). I would like to run the macro within visual studio for any selected excel file or add the macro somehow to the selected excel file and run it.

'Here is the button click procedure

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
filenames = lstFiles.SelectedItem

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.

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.

Excel To Powerpoint Macro - Copying Excel Range And Pasting As HTML Or Default In Powerpoint?

May 11, 2011

I'm trying to copy a Range from Excel and Paste the information in powerpoint in either the HTML or the default format, however, I am having some difficulties. I am able to get the code to work for pasting the Range as an OLE Object but nothing else. The problem with doing this is that having the embedded excel documents in the powerpoint makes the file extremely large and unstable. I just need to be able to paste the information without the embedded information where it is editable (so, not as a bitmap or picture).

With ppt2Slide
Range("CP12:CT" & RangeIndex2).Copy

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.

Excel - Code In VBA And Recording A Macro - Input A Values For The X Axis Rotation And The Y Axis Rotation

Sep 16, 2009

I am having some major problems with the code in VBA and recording a macro didn't get me anywhere nor is the VBA help file. I have to have it so that I can input a values for the x axis rotation and the y axis rotation so that my 3d surface graph will rotate whatever values I input, the 3d surface graph will rotate those degrees. I also have to have a method for having the default rotation. I was also wondering how to put scroll bars for the x and y rotation. The only other thing I am having trouble with is having an input to check box for right angle axes. So far I have two cells for entering the x rotation value and the y rotation value. I also already have my 3d surface graph.

.net - Add Header And Footer Macro?

Oct 5, 2009

I need to make a difficult makro.When the makro has been activated (will happen via a button), it has to add a header and a footer to the document.Also page1/frontpage needs a different header and footer than all the other potential pages.So far, I have accomplished making page1/frontpage to work - somewhat.I did this by recording a makro, where I'd enable headers and footers, write the needed data and then stop recording.Afterwards I edited the coding so it would fit a little better. Mostly it was junk-code cleanup.

Calling Access Macro From .NET?

Mar 20, 2011

I call an Access macro from vb.net like so: Acc.DoCmd.RunMacro("Macro1")

The Macro in Access has many OpenQuerys and Msgbox with a message saying "data done" at the end.

When I execute the macro from vb.net, it shows the data done message and then done. However, when I analyse the table's to see if data has been appended, it hasen't.When I run the same macro from within Access, it works fine. It does show many messages like "You are about to run an append query that will modify data in your query" and I hit yes and does take slightly longer, but it does do it. In VB.NET, the only message I get is the final messagebox.

Macro Without Mouse Control?

Dec 11, 2010

I have seen a few programs one in particular, that runs like a macro but it doesn't take over/control your mouse. Instead it uses a secondary, what you could call virtual mouse. It constrains the mouse to the form and then uses this 'secondary' mouse to run the macro without controlling your other mouse. This way you can browser the internet, or whatever else without being disturbed by the running macro.

Does anyone know what this is called? May someone please give me a tutorial on how to use it,

Make A Macro Program?

Dec 8, 2009

I already know how to check what buttons/mouse event have been issued by the user. What I need to know is how to reissue those commands at the same intervals. Reissuing the commands is easy to do, but issuing them at the same intervals as I have done? Not so easy for me.

So let's just say I press LMB one minute after I press a button that starts recording what I've done, then RMB 15 seconds later, if I wanted to click Playback and it would do these actions at the same time that I did them after pressing Record, how would I make the program issue the commands at those specific times?
