Q: Solved: excel 2007 macro error


Every macro enabled file that I try to use on my computer gives me the same error: Runtime error 9 subscript out of range.

I get this error on files that work on other computers, including files I wrote on my computer, they don't work anymore and the all give me the same error.

Even writing a very simple macro I get this error, for example:

Sub MyInfo()
Workbooks("CropTool").Worksheets("RawData").Range("A1").Cells(2,4) = "hi"
End Sub

I have checked about 10 times to make sure that the workbook is indeed called CropTool, and the worksheet is called RawData.

This error has nothing to do with what I write in the module....

Please help.

Iím using Windows 7 and I used a macro which worked totally fine under Excel 2003. Now, under Excel 2007 it does not run anymore but displays the following error message:

"Run-time error '445':
Object doesn't support this action.

The function of the macro is to open up all other Excel spreadsheets located in the same folder and copy data out of them into the spreadsheet in which the macro is stored.

When I click on "Debug" the Visual Basic Editor highlights the row which says: Set FilSrch = Application.FileSearch

Can you help me with this? I've searched for a solution for a long time but could not find anything which worked.

The following is the start of the macro code:

I am trying to create a code that will autofilter data on an Excel worksheet. The code works fine to filter the data, but it does not hide the AutoFilter Arrows.

Below is the code I am using. What (if anything) is wrong with the code below?

ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D500").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="<>", Visibledropdown:=False

A:Solved: Excel 2007 Macro -> Hide Excel AutoFilter Arrows

I noticed that the code above (in Post #1) that the AutoFilter Arrows were beinf truned off on Field 2, but none of the others.

I have played around, and done some research to come up with the code below:

Dim c As Range

For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D1")
ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D500").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="<>"
c.AutoFilter Field:=c.Column, Visibledropdown:=False

Does anyone have a better solution?

Macro's for excel is new for me so I hope somebody can help me.
I receive a notepad file via mail. The content of this mail I copy/paste in an excel sheet.
This Notepad file consist of H-lines (=header lines - begins with H) and B - lines (Goods lines - begins with B).
For each H-line I have to create a new file in Excel. In this file, for each B-line that comes after the H-line,I have to get data in different cells:
In Cell A, I need characher 420 to 422 (included) of the H-line
In Cell B, I need character 2 to 10 (included) of the H-line
In Cell C, I need character 23 to 31 (included) of the H-line
In Cell D, I need character 27 to 35 (included) of the B-line
In Cell E, I need character 2 to 9 (included) of the B-line
In Cell H, I need character 348 to 351 (included) of the H-line
In Cell I, I need character 61 to 69 (included) of the B-line
After all the B -lines of the H-lines are processed the file may be saved as CSV-file (comma delimited)
Then the next H-line can be processed and a new file may be created.
Then the process is the same as above. This continue until no H- or B-lines are found in the file.

I'm working on a macro that does several things with budget reports. I have zero knowledge of Visual Basic, just recorded my macro and played with the code.
It creates a line called "total expenses" then, six cells to the right, I need it to add the value in a row titled "total coaches" and another value in a row called "total directors". these values are 6 cells to the right of the titles. so what I had tried to do was search for the "total coaches", move over six cells, take that cell's location and add it to the "total directors" value with the same process. however, the macro just used RC to record the cell's position. the position of the value needs to be dynamic as the reports will change.

I can get it to create the "total expenses" line and make the cell six to the right of it active. I just can't get the formula to be dynamic based on a text search.

here's the relevant code:
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Total Expenses"

This should do what you want, but I don't have an example to look at so I just made up my own example

You can adjust the column numbers to match yours. Note that I made some additions. I think in your recorded macro you went to Row 247 at the start, which I am assuming is the last row...I added code to find it for you.

Public Sub test()

Dim Coach As Integer
Dim Direct As Integer
Dim totalExp As Integer

Dim ws As Worksheet

Set ws = ActiveSheet

On Error GoTo err_Hand

' finds the last row in column 1
lrow = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

'fills in cell 2 rows below last empty
Cells(lrow + 2, 1) = "Total Expenses"

totalExp = lrow + 2

Cells.Find(What:="total coaches", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas _
, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _

Coach = ActiveCell.Row

Cells.Find(What:="total directors", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas _
, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _

Direct = ActiveCell.Row

Cells(totalExp, 2) = Cells(Coach, 6) + Cells(Direct, 6)

' 91 is the error number when the search value is not found

Hello, I am very new to Excel 2007 and even newer to Macros. I have a spreadsheet that is created automatically that can contain many rows of data. The First column always holds certain words, such as "pending" or "Resolved". I would like to create a Macro to sort all of the rows with the same word in the first column into new sheets. For example, let's say their are 20 total rows in this sample, 8 rows have Pending in the first column and 12 have Resolved in the first column. I would like to search for all the rows that have pending in the first column and cut and paste the entire row to a new sheet. Then do the same for Resolved. I do not have much coding experience, what would be a good example?

I just bought a new laptop running windows 8, downloaded and installed Excel 2007. I have the Developer tab active, did the Macro Security changes to allow activex, enable all macros etc., but the Record Macro, Visual Basic and Macros buttons are inactive. That is, they are not clickable. I updated to windows 8.1 - no joy! Otherwise the install of Excel 2007 seems okay. Spreadsheets from my old computer & a much older version of Excel open okay, formulas work, etc. The Macro issue is the only problem I am aware of at this point. The symptoms are the same on a new (blank) workbook or on an existing spreadsheet. Any suggestions? - I guess a re-install is my next option. Thanks in advance. Bob

Excel '07 won't open an "excel 4.0" macro (i.e. *.xlm file). I am one of a few users at work using excel 2007, I believe this file was made with excel 2000 or similar. When I had excel 2000 it opened fine, it's a common file on the network that everyone should be able to access, and everyone with excel 2000 can easily. So I know it's not the file. When I try and open it with excel 2007 I get that stupid error about the file being different to the extension.

I've tried registry edits and workarounds after scowering the net but nothing seems to fix it. All it does is display the error, then opens excel in the background without even a new worksheet. Excel isn't hanging, it just does nothing. Any ideas?

A:excel 2007 won't open excel 4.0 macro

XLM was long ago replaced by VBA (with Excel 5 in 1993) and MS no longer really supports it (although I think they claim that they do, kinda, sorta.) So the only thing you can do, I think, is to make a copy of the xlm file and convert the xlm code in the copied file to VBA. Fortunately, I found a link that tells you how to do that:
(Look at the link at the bottom, too. But you will need to download that to an older PC, possibly.)
Now, assuming all goes well, this will give you two versions of the same file, but if everyone else has Excel 2000 (or later) then they will all be able to use the new VBA-based file, so you won't end up with two files that would lead to confusion.
Still, it looks to be a lot of work, so good luck!

On a final note, if you need this file done in VBA and you can't figure out how to redo it, make a post describing your needs - there are some amazing VBA coders on here.

I am trying to create a Macro in which I have data in sheet 2 that I copy and paste into Excel 2007 from a website that changes on a monthly basis that I need to place into sheet 1 at the bottom of the page.

Currently, sheet 1 column A is the date. Currently the 9/30/12 date is on row 44 and row 45 would be 10/31/12, etc...each row is a new end of month. I do this on a quarterly basis and for multiple tabs so the macro would be for all the sheets, but I figure if someone could tell me the macro for sheet 1, I can change the sheet names in the macro for the other sheets.

I need to create three rows at a time starting on row 45 for the next three months, then row 48 for the three months after, etc... Cell g45 will come from sheet 2 cell F3; g46 will come from sheet 2 cell F4 and g47 will come from sheet 2 cell F5. I need these cells to be copied and pasted with values only because I will change Sheet 2 on a quarterly basis and I need the "old" numbers to stay and be fixed. This means I can not use the equal sign to setup my formula. Cell H45 will use the formula from cell h44 (I normally just drag down) and this will continue until cell h47. Cells M45, N45, & S45 use the same drag down feature for the formula that the "H" cells do. There are no other columns with active data in it.

Hi everyone,

I need a few macros (I have no experience with VB or writing macros):

To search a column and add a period (.) to the end of any fields that do not have one.
To search a column for any instances of ellipses (more than one consecutive period) and reduce them to a single period.
To search a column for any instances where there is a period or comma followed by anything other than a space, and to add one.

To have one macro that could do all three would be ok, or separated into separate functions.

Thanks in advance!

A:Excel 2007 Macro

One to eliminate multiple consecutive spaces would be useful as well.

With the others, the functions can be at cross-purposes: for example, if a field ends with a period, I don't want to add a space; similarly I would want to eliminate ellipses first, because otherwise when I search for periods followed by not-spaces, ellipses will be caught in that and changed.

Forgive my lay-speak. I'm not a dev or anything, just an editor who wants to make his work faster by eliminating these common errors.

I have been trying to figure out if it was possible to do a fairly complicated replacement.

Just a description of the file:
- There are columns a-q in the file, with rows going up to about 9000.

Each day I have to upload several hundred files onto an outside website which I then have to copy down by hand the numbers of the files. Those files are organized similar to "5 bay - 99,84,77,33,45 STR 555 - AA.2012.file type". The only unique piece of each file is the number following STR, which is the part that i write down. This number is in column E.

My job after writing down the numbers of each file that fits into a corresponding row in column E, is to go into columns O and P and put my initials in column O and the current date in column P.

I was wondering if it was possible to make this quicker through the use of some macro. I can always type the numbers into a separate excel sheet and feed the macro that list somehow. The columns are not always O and P either. It can also be J and K, or Q and R as well depending on what I had done.

So all in all, I'm asking if it is possible to create a macro that I can feed the number that corresponds in column E and have it add my initials and the current date to the two columns of my choosing. Thanks in advance, even if it isn't possible!

A:Excel 2007 Macro Help

Hey there, just registered to help you out! Check this and tell me if it works, just make sure to backup your files beforehand *wink*

Sub Book1()

Dim Initials As String
Dim StoreColumn As Integer
Dim InitialsColumn As Integer
Dim DateColumn As Integer
Initials = "KM"

For i = 1 To 30

If ActiveSheet.Cells(1, i).Value = "Store No." Then
StoreColumn = i
If ActiveSheet.Cells(1, i).Value = "Assignment Completed by:" Then
InitialsColumn = i
End If
If ActiveSheet.Cells(1, i).Value = "Date Assigned" Then
DateColumn = i
End If
End If

Next i

For j = 1 To 10000

If ActiveSheet.Cells(j, StoreColumn).Value = "5526" Then
ActiveSheet.Cells(j, InitialsColumn).Value = Initials
ActiveSheet.Cells(j, DateColumn).Value = Now()
End If

End Sub

Im not sure of your experience level with excel but paste it in VBA in excel and run it. The code searches through columns to find the ones with stores, initials and dates and remembers where they are. Then it searches through stores to find the 5526 value and puts the current date and initials that you can set at beginning of the code. Let me know what you think.

PS. Before you run it make sure to check the names of the columns. I wrote what I saw but it isn't necessarily what there is. Just copy the names from columns and paste them to the code

Thanks to Zack Barresse for replying to my last thread; I have a similar question this time.

(also a link to a beginner VB or Excel macro course might be useful, heh..)

I hope you guys can help me out again with this. It seems similar to the the issue that I posted last time. But I think it is a little bit more complicated.
I receive two notepad - files (for example importfile 1 and importfile 2) via mail, I copy paste the data in an excel sheet.
Each line in the notepad - files is an order. The format of the file is :
- Character 1 to 2 (included) = Plant
- Character 3 to 5 (included) = Route
- Character 6 to 8 (included) = Suffix
- Character 9 to 18 (included) = Delivery Date
- Character 19 to 27 (included) = DunsNo
- Character 28 to 35 (included) = ContainerNo
- Character 36 to 40 (included) = Quantity
- Character 41 to 49 (included) = Total Weight
- Character 50 to 61 (included) = Volume
- Character 62 to 69 (included) = Planned Date
A csv-file ( has to be created for each line with the same route, suffix, delivery date and DunsNo.
The name of the csv-files to be created has the following format : Route_Suffix_Delivery Date
(for example DG2_3HB_22-12-2010
The output file consists of following format :
Cell A1 is always T , Cell A2 = the data in collumn D that matches the routeNo in collumn A of a excel-file (for example Trailer_Types1)
Then each row begins with P in collumn A for each line with the same route, delivery and DunsNo
Collumn B = Plant of notepad - file
Collumn C = Route of notepad - file
Collumn D = Suffix of notepad - file
Collumn E = Delivery Date of notepad -file
Collumn F = DunsNo of notepad - file
Collumn G = Container... Read more

A:Solved: Excel Macro: Run-time error '1004'

With the sheet and the charts it's a needle in a haystack.
The error messag is that you're adressing a range or sheet which is either misspelt or hidden or non existant.
You will have to go through the macro step by step.
Open the VBA editor, loop for the macro select it and press F8 so the code will be executed line by line and it will stop when the error occurs.
Check that line and see if what it addresses exists.
Trouble shooting takes time an patience.

Good luck

I have a macro I wrote in excel 2003 (by recording small steps as a chain of macros), I just upgraded to a new machine and Office 2010.

When I try and run the macro it comes back with error message "Run time error 438, Object doesn't support this property or method."

When I run debug the code line that is flagged is:

Selection.End(X1 to Left).Select

Are there any commands or options which have changed between 2003 and 2010 and is there a conversion list anywhere?

I have attached a spreadsheet. The first tab (Setup) has buttons 1,2,3,4,5. The purpose of these buttons is to have different years investments. I have a tab (Sheet1) that is hidden in the spreadhseet. Each macro unhides, then changes about 3 formulas on the Investment Analysis Tool tab, simply changing the cell reference. Only it does't ' change. It errors out with the above error. I've never see anything like this happen! Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi. My name is Chuck and I am new to the forum. I am working on an Excel 2007 Workbook in which I am saving certain activities to macros. When creating these macros, I am storing the macros in "This Workbook". My ultimate goal is to be able to save this workbook with the macros I have recorded and assigned to buttons within the workbook to a thumb drive and give it to a friend who can then open the file on any machine that has Microsoft Excel 2007 running on it, and use the workbook and have the macros work. However, it appears that when I close the file and reopen it later to continue working on it (on the machine I am creating the file on), it is as if I never even recorded the macros... they are gone. Please help.

A:Excel 2007 Macro Question

Read other 9 answers

I have researched my issue but other threads posted here did not solve my problem. I have an Excel 2007 spreadsheet that was first designed in Excel 2003, and it has a macro that generates 93 spreadsheets with prepopulated data. The macro works, it generates the files but then I cannot open them due to the following error:
'Excel cannot open the file 'xxx.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid.'
I have tried changing the macro to save as .xlsm, but get the same result. I have conditional formatting that will not work in Excel 2003, plus most of the people who will be opening the file are on Excel 2007, so I don't want to save in xls format; however, I did change the macro to see if it worked for Excel 2003 and it does.

Sure hope someone can help.

Here is a sample from the macro:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "HP Argentina"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:\Data\P2012 Templates\P2012 Country Summary and Cost Forecast - HP Argentina.xlsx" _
, FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

A:Excel 2007 Macro Issue

If the macro is being run in 2007 you should first try changing the FileFormat value that you are passing. Change the portion below.

FileFormat:=xlNormalClick to expand...

So that it reads

FileFormat:= xlOpenXMLWorkbookClick to expand...

If the workbook is a macro enabled workbook use the line below instead.

FileFormat:= xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabledClick to expand...

Hi, I have got an Excel spreadsheet which has incident numbers in column A. For each of these incidents I need to put in hyperlinks which are very very similar. The first part of the hyperlink is the address to the database and the second part is the Incident number itself. I'm trying to create a macro which automates the process of putting in the hyperlink plus the incident number in. Can this be done?

Hi Folks

I have an Excel 2007 .XLSM file containing the following macro that performs a Fourier analysis
Sub Macro1()
Application.Run "ATPVBAEN.XLAM!Fourier", ActiveSheet.Range("$C$1:$C$4"), ActiveSheet.Range("$E$1"), False, False
End Sub

The macro works fine when I launch the XLSM file manually. However, if I launch the file from a VB program (in Microsoft Access 2007), I get the following message:

'Cannot launch the macro ". The macro may not be available in this workbook or macros may be disabled'

The code I use to open the workbook and relevant add-ins:
Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.application")
Set objBook = objXL.Workbooks.Open(MyPath & "Template1.xlsm")
objXL.Workbooks.Open (objXL.Application.LibraryPath & "ANALYSISATPVBAEN.XLAM")
objXL.Workbooks.Open (objXL.Application.LibraryPath & "ANALYSISANALYS32.XLL")
objXL.RegisterXLL "Analys32.xll"
I then go to the worksheet and try to manually execute macro1 but I get the above error message. Note that:
"enable all macros" is set in Developer/Macro Security
"trust Access to the VBA etc." is turned on. in in Developer/Macro Security
I tried placing the macro in my PERSONAL.XLSB file to no avail (not sure this was worth it, but I found a suggestion to that effect on another forum)

Hello. I am attempting to develop a macro that will allow me to find a number in column D and replace that value with a text name. I have 31 - 5 digit codes with 31 corresponding text names. The spread sheet is 10,000+ entries and growing every day. For example, I would like to find all instances of "21021" (in column D ONLY) and replace them with the word "Boyle." And so on, for all 31 codes. I'm new to Macros and could really use a little help to get me started!

Is there a way to have Excel open a folder and place the file name with extensions in Column A. Then open another folder and place the contents of that folder into Column B?

I also would like the list to skip adding file to column if it already exist on worksheet, but if a file was deleted from folder it would be removed from the worksheet.

Here is a macro that I use quite often ...

Sub Get_File_Names()

[B]'1st directory[/B]

lRowA = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Range("A1:A" & lRowA).ClearContents

MyPath = "C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\XXXXXX\" [COLOR=red]'adapt to your requirement - always end with "\"[/COLOR]
Count = 1
MyFile = Dir(MyPath)
Cells(Count, 1) = MyFile
While MyFile <> ""
Count = Count + 1
MyFile = Dir
Cells(Count, 1) = MyFile

[B]'2nd directory[/B]

lRowB = Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row
Range("B1:B" & lRowB).ClearContents

MyPath = "C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\XXXXXX\" [COLOR=red]'adapt to your requirement - always end with "\"[/COLOR]
Count = 1
MyFile = Dir(MyPath)
Cells(Count, 2) = MyFile
While MyFile <> ""
Count = Count + 1
MyFile = Dir
Cells(Count, 2) = MyFile
End Sub

Unless identifying which files are new and what's been deleted is important I would just delete the previous list and get all current files - as I've done in this code.
