Excel 2003 vsto 2005 vb.net - ThisAddIn_Startup problem


I have an add-in that works well and executes the me.startup event perfectly 
when Excel is started manually.

If Excel is started by double clicking an .xls file, the add-in fails to 
start and becomes disabled.  The xls file then loads.  I can re-enable the 
add-in and it executes me.starup fine.

I found that when I strip much code back in me.startup the add-in can start 
sucessfully when double clicking an .xls file to open Excel.

There does not appear to be any 'offending code' that causes the problem, it 
appears to be more along the line of timing.

Thanks for considering this problem.

You need to isolate the problem futher.  There can be differences in how
a macro is executed based on how th e file is opened.  For example, the
active sheet may not be the same.  Hre are some suggestions

1) Change you security level to medium t make sure the security level
is not set to high where the macro will not run

2) Change your error handling to Stop on all errors.  You may be
skipping over some errors that will give you a clue to your problem

VBA menu - tools - OPtions - General - Error Trapping - Stop on all

3) Comment out all your On Error statements so the code will stop on
the error and tell you where the error is occuring

4) To help isolate the problem Add STOP statements in the code.  You
can press F5 to continue past the stop statement.  I usually debug
problems that occur when workbooks are opened by placing STOP at the
beginning of the workbook open macro.  Then see if the problem still
occurs.  Then add more stops until I isolated the problem.

Beware apparent Tax Estimator problem in M+
The Tax Line Manager shows a "tax category" (my term for lack of a better name--these are kinda cryptic like budget groups) called "State taxes" as being associated with Schedule A. I have a category "Taxes : State Income Tax - previous year" associated with "State taxes". Tax Line Manager shows amounts from transactions categorized as "Taxes : State Income Tax - previous year". So far so good. And there it stops. Tax Estimator doesn't add the amounts from this "State taxes" tax category into the "Deductible Taxes"...

Error in formula displayed for linear and 2nd order curve fits in Excel 2003
I have created trendlines for some pretty simple data using both 2nd order polynomial and linear fits. In both cases, the displayed formulas have their 1st and 2nd order coefficients wrong by a factor of 10!! (I have read lots of posts about increasing precision but this is not what I am up against). Has anyone seen this? What version of Excel? Could you include the data in a follow up post (not as an attachment), along with the coefficients you've computed? - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Tutorials and Custom Solutions Peltier Technical Services, Inc. - http://PeltierT...

Excel: extract and sum numerals from mixed text/numeral cell range
I have a large (30x20) grid of cells with data, and I want to extract and then sum up certain numerals from this entire range. The catch is that the data is mixed numerals and text, as you'll see below. Here's an abbreviated 3x3 example, with a value in each of the nine cells: V7.1 T H P1 A T B V3 P4.5 If I just wanted to sum up the instances of "T" appearing, I could use COUNTIF() for the entire range to come up with answer ("T" appears 2 times). Easy enough. But, what I'm trying to accomplish is to sum up the numerals associated w...

Windows Update
My problem is similar to someone else's below(about Excel 2003 not being able to update), the only difference is that I don't want Excel to update at all. I don't even use it.

After failing to install several times, I decided to uninstall Excel from Microsoft Office(Pro Edition 2003). Even after uninstalling Excel, I still got the windows update alert. How do I stop it?

Do I need Windows 2003 Enterprise for Exchange 2003 Enterprise?

What will Windows 2003 Enterprise give me that Standard does not? Any help is appreciated. Thanks. No you don't. You would only need Windows 2003 Enterprise if you are planning on doing clustering.

Excel charts should allow "switching" series on or off
A plot (chart) of time series data may be used for many purposes. From my use two reasons I use such plots are: Studying individual time series trends; and Overall impression of all results. But when studying multiple time series data a chart can become cluttered. It would be useful if individual series could be seleceted as visible or invisible so that they could be evaluated without losing the total plot. At the moment the only way to "unclutter" the plot is to remove the temporaily-unwanted series but it can be time consuming to reconstruct the plot. ---------------- Thi...
