Preferred Solution: Macro for Work Distribution !!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I've used the following from Rollin_Again, but the macro stops at the first bit of code. My Excel Spreadsheet has only the three columns, first name, last name, and email, but I can;t get past Public Sub....

I sure need to do this, would evveen buy software if available.


Public Sub DistributionList()

Dim objOutlook As New Outlook.Application
Dim objNameSpace As Outlook.Namespace
Dim objDistList As Outlook.DistListItem
Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objRecipients As Outlook.Recipients
Set objNameSpace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set objDistList = objOutlook.CreateItem(olDistributionListItem)
Set objMail = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set objRecipients = objMail.Recipients
objDistList.DLName = InputBox("Enter name of Distribution List")

For i = 1 To Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
objRecipients.Add (Range("C" & i).Value)
Next i

objDistList.AddMembers objRecipients

Set objOutlook = Nothing
Set objNameSpace = Nothing
Set objDistList = Nothing
Set objMail = Nothing
Set objRecipients = Nothing

A:Macro Excel to Distribution in Outllok

By the way I'm on Vista 32 bit, 4GB RAM

Read other 1 answers

I need a macro that will 1) create a new outlook folder, then 2) create new Outlook distribution lists from data in an Excel sheet.

The Excel sheet has columns:
A - ID

The first entry begins in row 2 with row 1 being the column title.

I need a new distribution list to be created for each department (column B) and each student level (column C). (Column B will only ever be one of 6 values, column C will only ever be one of 2 values. Therefore, the macro should create 8 distribution lists.)

I have looked at threads similar to this question but I can't seem to get anything working.

Hello All...

I am currently working with a word document that is about 750 pages (generated from a report ). Because the report is often generated severl times a month… My goal is to make this document "easier" to navigate by creating a header for the “specific” name referenced in the first table on each page. This will enable me to add a table of contents and the ability to see the document map.

I created a macro to do this... However, I do not understand how to tell the macro to… go to the next page.. repeat… stop at the last page… skip blank pages.

Have an Access 2000 form that includes a subform for a child table. I want to update a checkbox which IS on the subform after the user enters a value in the field [Result]. Wrote a SetValue macro as follows and call it AfterUpdate:

Item: [Forms]![TestDetailSubform]![InitialDrugTest]

Expression: IIf([Forms]![TestDetailSubform]![InitiaDruglTest]=No,IIf([Forms]![TestDetailSubform]![TestType]="I" And [Forms]![TestDetailSubform]![Result]="P",Yes,No))

I've tried several iterations, but every time it runs, I get the message "Microsoft Access can't find the form 'TestDetailSubform' referred to in a macro expression or VB code". This is difficult to understand, since the field that has the macro is IN the TestDetailSubform!?! Why am I getting this message/how can I make the macro do what it's supposed to do?

A:Update macro doesn't work

Never mind! I found the answer. You'd think after using Access for 5 years that I'd remember that in a SetValue macro, you DO NOT/CANNOT include [Forms]![Formname] in the expression; you must only include the control name. So all of the "[Forms]![TestDetailSubform]" text in the expression has to be removed... after which it works fine.

Sorry for cluttering the forum with junk...

I created a macro for moving rows from worksheet A to worksheet B. And it worked fine when I ran it as a macro.
Then I created a CommandButton and copy-pasted the code there (to be ran by click) and it didn't work anymore! I tested it, and the commandbutton-action works fine within one worksheet. But then when it should move between sheets (within the same file) - nope, doesn't work anymore...!!!

Can someone give me some advice how to solve this problem.
I would prefer the commandbutton (vs. running it as a macro)

Can you write a macro that will copy something from excel and paste it into word?

If so how do you do it? Do you write the macro in Excel or Word?

Many thanks

A:Macro to work in Word and Excel?

Yes, this can be done. Describe in detail exactly what you are trying to do and I'll write you a sample macro. Where should the values appear in the Word document? Which cell values will you be using? If you could .ZIP and attach some sample files that would make things much easier.

The basic steps are:

1) Set reference to Word library in your VBA Editor in Excel
2) Create a new instance of Word Application within your Excel project.
3) Execute your code on the instance of Word application.
Dim wdApp As Word.Application

Set wdApp = New Word.Application

wdApp.Visible = True

wdApp.Documents.Open ("C:\Documents and Settings\DocumentName.doc")

Hi Magicians

Sorry to trouble the experts with this query but am having no luck elsewhere.

I have tried a number of well known macro schedulers/keyloggers etc to produce a macro to carry out some tasks with a couple of programs open one of which is an old dos program and while the macro logger will recognise the Enter key on the keyboard there are a number of keys it won't recognise when in the dos program window. eg. up and down keys, Function keys and Number pad keys.

Can anyone suggest something I might try as a middle level computer user.

Hi "Masters of VBA",

I was wondering if you were able to help me out on a situation that i have where i am trying to do something on my own on a data conversion project at work. I need a vba code runned in a macro where whenever i find the word "confidential" it will delete that row including the following 6 rows below. And i have to loop it as many times as it comes in the file and mind you this file is massive and i ain’t allowed to send it as you know its a matter of confidentiality. And secondly i need a similar code where whenever i find the word MLI GST i can then delete it and the next 12 rows below.

Basically, I am only interested in the middle part of the file, which contains the juicy information with the columns etc. What i am trying to delete is the header (which includes the name and address of the client) and the footer summary. If there is anyone i know who can do some crazy stuff with VBA it would be you so that’s why i am coming to you for help.

Just a recap i will do a sort of pseudo code (i hope it makes some sense)

{Code to remove the header}

i = confidential
Do Loop
If (Ctrl Find = "Confidential"),
Delete 6 rows below (which also includes the row that contains the word confidential)
Next i
Leave everything as is.
End Loop

i = "MLI GST"

I used the Find and Replace dialog box in Word 2003 to find paragraphs formatted with 1 inch left indent and 0 inch right indent. With the box for "Highlight all items found in Main Document" checked, clicking "Find All" selects all the paragraphs in the document that have this formatting, many of which are non-contiguous, which is exactly what I want. I used the Macro Recorder to record this action. But when I execute the recorded code from the VBA editor, nothing happens. The code recorded by the successful use of the dialog box is as follows:

I'd like to be able to open a template I configured by clicking a toolbar button. With Word 2011 I have to click the template button, then click My Templates, then select the template I use most often from the others, then click the choose button. So I tried recording a macro and went thru all those steps. But when I run the macro, I get the blank template opened, not my template.I can't "write" in Visual Basic, but here is what was recorded in VBSub NewNotes()
' NewNotes Macro
Documents.Add Template:="Normal.dotm", NewTemplate:=False, DocumentType:=0
End SubI tried editing the code to Add Template:="Notes.dot", which is the name of my template. Then I tried also changing NewTemplate:=True. I get a runtime error 4198 command failed. I don't know what DocumentType:=0 does.Because I'm running Word 2003 in a virtual machine, I use .dot templates in 2011 instead of .dotm and I save my documents in .doc instead of .docx so I can open the docs saved in 2011 in 2003. I tried creating a Notes.dotm template and recording the macro, but when I ran the macro I got the blank template instead of Notes.dotmAnyone know how I can edit the macro to make it open Notes.doc or Notes.docm?

access 97 macro, trying to send oject as RTF to outlook 2000 - will not recognise. it works with access 2000 and outlook 98, and it works with access 97 - outlook 98. Get error -- cannot open mail session. HELP!!!!!

A:Access 97: Macro to Outlook 2000 Doesn't Work

Likely, it's because you can't "move upward". Most programs are downward compatible, but not upward. The reason Outlook 98 probably works is because it's really nothing more than an upgrade of Outlook 97. Outlook 2000 came with the Office 2000 suite. If I were you, I'd just open the DB in Access 2000 and convert it, if necessary, and have the macro in there. You should be able to import the new tables quicker than trying to find some other workaround. You can probably just add that to the macro, you know--import tables (linked even) from Access 97 DB, run report, send as rtf to OL2K.

I am using the MSN Stock Quote addin with MS Excel 2003. Prior knowledge of this should not be necessary, but I just thought I'd provide full context to my issue. I wrote a macro that essentially records daily stock prices. Because I don't want to store old quotes into perpetuity, i need to ensure that the update quotes button has been hit. I use sendkey() to accomplish this, and then the macro copies the quotes and pastes them elsewhere. My main goal is to have the task scheduler open this file daily so i dont ever have to think about this again, and i'm so close. Essentially my problem is that it takes a few seconds after the update button is hit for the add-in to fetch the new prices from the internet, and this process appears to be delayed until the macro is finished. This is a problem because the macro ends up recording un-updated quotes. I have tried the Application.Wait procedure, and I've tried time consuming loops, do while loops, etc. All of these approaches result in the same thing: Can someone please help me with this? I'm too lazy to hand update this spreadsheet every trading day for the rest of my life (or until i quit). Thank you in advance!

Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32. Any knowledge you folks have would be very interesting, as I have always been curious about the very odd weekend of February 12, 2010. Now don't get me ... Read more

A:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

How do you keep a macro running until you reach the end of a page? Currently I just hold down the control or Alt keys. I have long documents so holding down the Alt + whatever key is not always practical.

Here is a sample macro. How do I make the macro run until the macro reaches (in this case) the top of the page?

I think the "do until" feature is used in the code but I do not know the syntax for "do until".

Hi Im an amatuer photographer and i'm looking to dupe my heap of old 35mm slides using my canon 180mm 3.5f macro lens... I'm wondering if anyone has tried doing so with a macro lens similar ..
I use a 40d digital canon camera. The shortest focusing distance for the lens is just under half a metre.
I also have a 1.4 extender that gives extra magnification but dont think i would need it.
I imaging the idea is to photograph down a piece of pipe (ie fit it to the lens somehow) and have the 35mm slide illuminated from the rear using some sort of slide holder and external flash behind....
The macro lens will do 1to1 life size is made to shoot a fairly flat field and the camera is capable of automatic exposure and bracketing... does that sound like a lot of rot ? or is it a proposition... I havnt seen a commercially made gadget to use on a dslr for this purpose. I copuld buy a dedicated dupe machine but im wondering if the optics and software are any better than the camera i've got?
Maybe someone is already doing it! I'm just new to this forum so a bit inexperienced in this process.... Regards to all

I've been tasked to compile in a sheet the monthly ending balances (from July to Dec) of customer receivables for 493 CUSTOMERS. That's a lot! I already started, but I know continuing until the end is crazy and even impossible. So please help?

Below is a picture of the first sheet containing the ledger data of the 493 customers dated July to December. I just blocked the center and changed the customer names in an attempt to maintain confidentiality.

As an example, for Customer 1, I need the July, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, and Dec ending BALANCES (last column) of the receivables.


For july 31, since the first entry is already 08.15 or August 15, this implies that the July balance must be 0 which I have to input into the July 31 column in the second sheet as shown in the second picture.

For Customer 1 August 31 2012, the closest date to August 31/8.31 entry indicates a balance of 0 so this must be the August 31 balance.

For customer 1 Sept 31 2012 to November 2012, no entries are inputted for these months (9-11) so the August 31 balance mustn't have changed and is the standing balance as of November 31.

For Customer 1 December 31 2012, the outstanding balance is 0.

Oh, as an added note, just in case, debit adds to the balance and credit deducts from it.

Debit and Credit can be in 2 col or 1 col.

Try not to "beautify" your source data with empty rows and columns, it makes summarisation difficult.

Simple enough, however I've read both here and MS site about the libraries and file system that W8 uses and how they're different than older versions so I'm now a bit confused as to the proper way to distribute my files when I put them on the new machine. For example, in XP I simply had a single folder for each piece of machinery (CNC machine that is) which contained all the documents (.pdf, xls, etc.), pictures, and videos directly pertaining to that individual machine. If I understand the W8 library system correctly, for best results I should now start an individual folder for each machine in each of the Windows libraries. That is, a folder in Documents for machine X, a folder in Pictures for machine X, a folder in Videos for machine X, etc. and then continue the same way for machine Y and so on. Am I correct? I have no problem doing this I'm just looking for best procedures to follow whenever possible and use the OS as designed.
Sorry for the rookie question, but most of my experience using computers, besides the typical "home" use has been with PPCL programming and process control. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Help with file distribution

You can set it up any way you want. There is no requirement to make the changes you mention. If you're comfortable with the structure you have now, stay with it. No need to even use Libraries unless you want to.

My recommendation would be to stay as you are initially, then as you get used to Windows 8, and it will take considerable getting used to, especially coming from XP, start making changes that add to the usability. Just my $.02 worth.

I am interested in creating a website where people can go and sign up to receive a green newsletter. The only information I need for them to provide is there name, email address and age range. Is there a program that I can purchase and put on Windows XP Professional or Windows 2003 server. I prefer not to use an outside service like constant contacts. I would like the program to automatically save the information after the person enters it so that it does not have to be imputed manually. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

I am responsible for about 225 Windows XP PCs on a Novell network. If anyone has experience pushing updates or new applications to several hundred PCs, I am looking for the best (easiest) way to do this. I just finished an upgrade that I did using sneaker-net, and it was too much.

A:application distribution

LOL, Sneakernet, haven't heard that term in a while....

here's a couple places to start digging,
mostly the type of thing like running them from a network share on some server via batch file or script, plus Microsoft has quite a few options in the remote deployment arena



It may or may not be exactly what you're looking for, but at least it's a start.
edit: I dunno what's up with the domain on that last link, I didn't even notice it until after I posted it, I'm looking into it, that's just weird.
is the acrtual MS link to the same content.......still weird.

My older (third computer) needs a new operating system, and I don't want to pay . I will be giving this computer to someone who doesn't know much about computers, and the specs are as follows:

Intel Pentium III @ 866MHz
40GB Hard Drive (Not sure of brand nor speed)
128MB SD-Ram
(Model Sony VAIO #PCV-RX360DS)

I want to try to get a distribution of Linux on the computer, and since the computer is not currently running an operating system, and I'm not skilled with Linux (usually in the CPU or Vid Card section of this site so...) I need help. Thank you for any help.

A:Which Linux Distribution?

I've always found that the Ubuntu distribution is a good choice for this sort of computer. It's based on Debian . . . very stable and proven.
Try a "Live" copy first if you like.
Nothing is installed to the hard drive . . it runs completely from the DVD ROM.
To date I haven't had a problem getting it to find any hardware on laptops nor set-top boxes.
Good Luck

Can someone tell me of a way a person can distribute a file to other people other than e-mail and are not connected to a network. I appreciate any help.

A:File distribution

You could try a free filesharing programme

Or a paid for web hosting service - there's lots out there, some with trial periods

Instant messaging - they allow you to send a file

Via a website if you have one

If they are photos - there's free pic hosting sites

Or you could mail them a floppy

I have inherited a list of 57 email addresses that I will use frequently over the next months. Is there a way to create a distribution list in Outlook without having to enter each address as a new contact? Can I cut and past the whole list into a distribution list? Currently, I have savied as a word document and just cut and past into bcc field when I have to send, but I'd love to have this in an Outlook list if possible.

Does anyone know the maximum number of email addresses that one can include on a single message in Outlook? I have another list that has 194 names on it. What's the best way to send as a mass email? This is a neighborhood security patrol alert announcement email, not advertising.

A:Distribution list

Hi needhelp1950

Your ISP determines how many e-mail addresses you can send at one time. You might try a maximum of 25 addresses to see if that message is allowed through or not.
Otherwise, call your ISP to see what their limitations are.

Copy the e-mail addresses to a spreadsheet and Import them into Outlook.
First, Export your existing Contacts from Outlook as a .csv file to see the template that Outlook uses. Then copy the names into the .csv file and Import it back into Outlook.
Which version of Outlook are you using?

I work at a small private school that occassionally sends school information home to parents. The school has tasked me with researching a way that we, the school, can send emails containing the school information to parents.

Our list of parents who want to receive these emails is about 300 - 350 parent email addresses. Our desire is to develop emails containing important school related info. and email everybody on the list as a BCC. Our desire is to transmit these emails but not allow anybody to "Reply" to the emails.

Does anybody know of an easy way we can email messages in mass?

We are hoping for a simple and economical way to simply send one-way emails to parents.

We do not want to use the current email engine that presently exists within our school system. (The reasons we don't want to use our current email system is a whole other story and is not for this forum.)

I am new to forums and hope I haven't over stated my self. I will appreciate any feedback from anybody.

A:Email Distribution

Create a distribution list. I don't understand what you mean when you say you can't use "the current e-mail engine". Are you referring to the client or the server?

There is a manager in my office that randomly looses his distribution list.

When he sends out an email, through Outlook web, using the distribution list, it disappears and there is no way to get it back. It does not go into the deleted folder or anywhere that I have been able to find. It does not seem to happen when he uses Outlook 2003.

This has happened 5 or 6 times now. As far as I know there are no other applications running at the time he sends out the email.

We are set up on an Exchange server.

Has anyone ever heard of this problem before? Any Ideas?

It should still be in your Deleted Items folder within Outlook. If not and you are trying to do it at work then try "Tools">>"Recover Deleted Items" from the menu bar.

Hi folks, I have a few questions about C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution.old. The folder is 456MB.What is this, and can it be deleted? I think it has something to do with Microsoft updates. I should clarify something: I have TWO Software Distribution folders. A few months ago, after the folks at the HiJackThis forum helped me clear up a malware infection, I started having some problems with some Windows functions. A Microsoft techie solved the problem, but in order to do so he had to create two "Software Distribution" folders. He named the one that already existed "Software Distribution.old" (this is the 456 MB folder), and created a new one: "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution".After he created the ".old" folder, the problems I was having cleared up... so his solution seemed to work. So can I now delete the ".old" folder?Thanks a million, D.

A:Software Distribution Folder

Most likely you can delete it without any issues. But I'd recommend moving it to another location for a week or two to see if you need it. Then, if you still don't need it, delete to the Recycle Bin - where it'll remain until it's forced out (thereby providing a measure of extra protection).

In outlook 2000

I imported a *.pst file with 4 distribution lists and 50 contacts

When I go to use that distribution list it says there are no recipients in that list to use. However when I open up the contacts folder I can see them.

No I know if you hit "update now" it repairs to the connection or something?!??!

Doing that works, however is this step neccessary. What does update now do?
