How to change a Macro based on content of a cell
I need to import a text file into a spreadsheet. I can do this manually by
doing File > Open > then select a text file. Then Excel goes through the
Text Import Wizard
I can automate this by recording a Macro in Excel. The macro looks like this
(Excell wrote that for me, I did not):
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:="C:\DrillData\" + "MOR701.pck",
StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(0, 1),
, 1), Array(26, 1), Array(37, 1)), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True

This would better be described by 'serialization' than 'interop', but I
didn't find a newsgroup that seems closer on topic.
The problem in a few words: I save data with DataSet.WriteXML, but I get
different data back when I read it later with DataSet.ReadXml.
I'm saving a dataset containing a single datatable to an XML file
(DataSet.WriteXml), and its schema to an xsd file (DataSet.WriteXmlSchema).
Then in another app, I load them back into a new empty dataset using
DataSet.readXmlSchema and DataSet.ReadXml. The schema is read first.

I am using the worksheet.copy method to copy a worksheet intact. The source worksheet has a few event macros that I would like to disable in the destination worksheet.
I considered just copying the contents of the source to a new worksheet. However, the source worksheet contains some controls I would like to keep in the destination sheet. These controls call to module subroutines outside the worksheet.
I can see two possible solutions, but I do not know how to execute any of them:

assigned to a macro, I would like to jump to a specific cell on the sheet.

No matter what I do, when I create a macro in Visio, that macro

my macro to format a footer for me, and I have 600 files it must do
this to (one at a time -- but I wish it could do this globaly, but
that's too much to ask)! Is there any way at all to make the new

I have a worksheet that has several pictures on it. Each picture has an

the file containing the macros has been moved. I have a number of files

Laurie, 2003 has auto recovery, tools options, save, it saves the file at

the file when you open it back up, if you have 2000 or 97 on another
