Whenever I open a new spreadsheet now it automatically opens up a spreadsheet calles PERSONAL. Why is that and how can I get rid of it... I think it started after a did a macro but I am not sure. Thanks,...


You're right - it was caused by recording a macro. When you record a macro you are given the option to store the new macro in "This Workbook", a "New Workbook" (the default), or in a "Personal Macro Workbook". It looks like you selected "Personal Macro Workbook".
The recorded macro is stored in a special workbook called "Personal.xls". This workbook is loaded every time Excel is loaded. If you don't want this workbook loaded, then just delete it or rename it.
The file is buried deep in Microsoft's application data area. On my Vista computer it's in C:\Users\frogfund\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART On my Windows XP computer it's in C:\Documents and Settings\frogfund\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART. Depending on your computer your Personal.xls might be in a slightly different location. You might need to do a search using Windows Explorer.
If you are still having troubles finding personal.xls 1. Open Excel, 2. Open the Visual Basic editor (hit Alt-F11 or click Tools-Macro-Visual Basic Editor) 3. Click Tools-References to bring up the references dialog 4. Click on VBAProject in the list. The file location will be displayed near the bottom of the dialog box. Sometimes this might be cut off at the end, but it should give you a good idea where the file is located. 5. Click Cancel to close the dialog.

Use of a graphic for my signature


I would use a macro. Go to the View tab, and at the far right you'll see the Macros dropdown. Select "Record Macro" and give it a name like MySig. Assign your macro to a button to place its icon on your Quick Access Toolbar at the very top along with the Save, Undo, Redo, etc. You may wish to change the default macro symbol -- just click the "Modify" button to choose from a wide assortment of icons. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut by clicking the Keyboard button and choosing your key combo.
Then step through your macro. I clicked the Insert tab, then Picture, and selected my signature image. Once that is placed on the page, go back to your Macros dropdown and select "Stop Recording."
Voilà! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Best,
~~Cheryl

Macros


After you record your macro do the following.
Open the excel file contains the macro. Go to tools and go to macro and click on macros. Select the macro you wish to add the close operation. Click on Step into... This will open up the visual basic editor. In the code window, at the bottom row you will see End Sub. Right before that row, type workbooks.close
Save the macro by clicking the save button. And you can run your macro to see if it works. I tried, it does :) Good Luck :)

Hi motilal

Follow these steps to create multiple macros

Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Excel Options.
In the Popular category, under Top options for working with Excel, select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box, and then click OK.

Note The Ribbon is a component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.
To set the security level temporarily to enable all macros, do the following: On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Macro Security.


In the Macros Settings category, under Macro Settings, click Enable all macros (not recommended, potentially dangerous code can run), and then click OK.

Note To help prevent potentially dangerous code from running, we recommend that you return to any of the settings that disable all macros after you finish working with macros.
Open the workbook that contains the module that you want to copy and the workbook that you want to copy the module to.
On the Developer tab, in the Code group, click Visual Basic.
On the View menu, click Project Explorer .
Drag the module that you want to copy to the destination workbook.

Microsoft Excel Formula


Hi, probably the easiest way would be to create a macro and attach it to a button which would automatically sort the required column in descending order. When Excel does this it reorders the whole list so that the names correspond correctly. To do this you simply go to the tools menu and select macros and "record new macro" then click any cell in the results that make that person coming first etc, then click the sort descending button on the toolbar, then click stop record.
Afterwards create a button from the "toolbox controls" and then view the code for both the button and the macro and copy the macro code and paste it into the "click" option for the button.
If you need an example or anything else give me a yell.

Macro on excel


Macros are a timesaving feature that allow you to record a sequence of actions that you do in excel, and replay them back later.

You give each macro a name, and you can invoke them later, and Excel will "do" whatever it is you did when you recorded the macro.

To record a new macro:
1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Record New Macro...
3) Type in a name for your macro and hit OK

(A new toolbar will popup with a "stop" button on it. Excel is now recording everything you do)

4) Do something, like, for example, select some cells and make them bold.
5) Click the "stop" button.


Now your macro has been recorded! You can play it back later by:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Macros...
3) Select your macro from the list
4) Click "Run"

The actions you performed earlier will now be executed.



-------


Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications, or "VBA". It is a programming language which uses the Excel Object Model to perform various actions. You can edit and create custom macros by writing the code manually in VBA. To do this:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to tools->macros->macros...
3) Select an already existing macro
4) Click "Edit"

(The visual basic editor will open, showing you the code for your macro)

At this point you are writing a program in Visual Basic. To learn how to edit macros, you need to learn visual basic, as well as the specific quirks related to excel macros in visual basic.

Recording a macro, and then using it as a template while you edit it is a common trick for making macros manually more quickly.

If you are not familiar with VB, I would not suggest attempting to edit your macros in any but the most simplest of ways. If you're brave, you can try to learn about editing macros in VBA here:
