If this is a button on a toolbar...

Saved from a previous post:

Your life will become much simpler if you include code to create the toolbar
when the workbook is opened and include code to destroy the toolbar when the
workbook is closed.

For additions to the worksheet menu bar, I really like the way John Walkenbach
does it in his menumaker workbook:

Here's how I do it when I want a toolbar:
(from Debra Dalgleish's site)

In xl2007, those toolbars and menu modifications will show up under the addins.

And if you use xl2007:

If you want to learn about modifying the ribbon, you can start at Ron de Bruin's

missing button on toolbar
In excel 2003, I like to have the two icons on my toolbars showing the option to email as attached file, and the second button to email as text.

Change link between form and subform
I have a form with a subform in it. I would like to change the way they are linked so instead of linking from Old ID, they link to New ID I don't know anything about code, is there a way to just change the cell it relies on? Thanks C Confused87 - Bring up the properties of the subform, and change the values in 'Link Child Fields' and 'Link Master Fields' on the Data tab of the properties dialog box.

Difficult in creating a macro
I am having difficulty in creating a section of a macro. I need to be able to copy and paste a range of cells from one area to another. The copied area of cells needs to be such that when I push CTRL-ArrowUp from below it, that it goes to the first actual number instead of the first copied cell. I have tried <Copy> and then <Paste Special> and checked only the values box, but this still results in the cursor moving only to the bottom-most copied cell instead of the bottom-most cell with an actual number in it. I need to do this so that I can make charts that accurately reflect...

Hello I have written a fairly big spreadsheet linking through the pages with SUM, SUMIF and SUMPRODUCT formula's What I am now finding is that when I update one page it doesn't update the rest, even if I am only typing in a figure to the SUM function.

Open a form in a subform depending on button.
Hi Sorry this is probably really simple but for the lfie of my can't find how to do it. I have a form with three buttons and an Unbound subform. I would like that when I click one of the buttons it opens another form in the currently unbound subform. I can work out how to open a form in another window but I want it to open in the subform. Also If I wanted it to open a query instead of another form in this subform would this change much? Thanks James On Fri, 20 Nov 2009 03:37:02 -0800, james <> wrote: Me.mySubformControl...

How to show Customer Name on MY Credit Card Receipt?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows how to print Customer Name on the Store's copy of the Credit Card transaction receipt. Basically 2 receipts are printed - one for customer and one that customer signs and gives back to us. The one that customer keeps always has the customer's name on it. However, our own copy has an unclear signature but not the customer's name and this makes it difficult to audit and match customers to their receipts at the end of the day (we do this to keep track of things which is helpful to us). How can we amend the receipt to print customer name on...

Linked Table Manager in ACCESS

Linked Tables Over A LAN
Hi, I have a problem with a PC that is sharing an Access database over a LAN. I'm hoping someone may be able to give me a little advice. By the way, I'm a bit of an amatuer so go easy on the technical terminology ;-). I've got four PCs networked through a router which provides internet access. Two PCs are running XP Pro and two are running Vista Business 32bit. One Vista machine holds my full database while the other PCs have a similar database but with tables linked to the first machine.

Macro #12
Why would a macro behave differently attached to a command button than when event driven through calculate worksheet? What does "behave differently" mean to you? It might help for you to post both a description of what you're concerned about, and relevant parts of your code in a reply message. A couple of things different: Macros in a regular code module may have different default behavior than macros stored in a worksheet code module - for instance Range("A1") in a regular code module is equivalent to ActiveSheet.Range("A1"). In a worksheet module, t...

Chart template and links

Linked Graphs from Excel
I have linked graphs from excel into my publisher document using Paste Special.

2007 does not like 2003 chart macros
I have a lot of time invested over the years in macros to analyze data from my work. I read and graph various files of data that I assemble into an Excel sheet. Everything works perfectly in 2003. But in 2007, I can not reliably generate graphs that include all my data. I have observed at least 2 repeatable problems as follows: 1. I can generate a "base" graph with up to 4 data series. If I then run a macro to change each series line color and weight, I will loose the 4th series. The data is there and the series shows up on on the graph key, but there is no visible line...
