VB6 Service Call To Excel 97 Macro
We have a VB6 program running as a service (on a windows 2000 server) to produce weekly and monthly reports automatically. This process has been running fine for years, but we recently upgraded our server, and now the process no longer functions.
The automated reports are still running and producing the text files, but the call to the Excel macro to import the text files and apply the formatting is failing.
I have a feeling that the problem may be permissions related, because the service is logging in as a batch process to make the call to excel and the macro.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Can't Call Add-In Member Function From Excel 2002 Macro
I am new to add-ins and have implemented the Microsoft example:
HOW TO: Build an Office COM Add-in by Using Visual Basic .NET
This worked fine. However, it only shows how to include a user defined button. I have attempted to add the following simple additional member function to the connect class:
Code:Public Sub funcTest1()
Dim excelApp As Object
MsgBox("In funcTest1()!") 'Works!
excelApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
excelApp.Sheets("Data").Range("A1").Value = "Hello World" 'Write to Excel cell "A1" - Works!
but cannot see the function in the Excel VB edtior to call it from a macro. Also, I cannot see the add-in under Excel tools/add-Ins. The function works OK as I can call it from the following existing member function of the connect class.
Code:Private Sub MyButton_Click(ByVal Ctrl As Microsoft.Office.Core.CommandBarButton, ByRef CancelDefault As Boolean) Handles MyButton.Click
MsgBox("Our CommandBar button was pressed!")
Call funcTest1() ' New call to test out funcTest1() - this works OK
I am using vb.Net 2002 and Excel XP - the file connect.vb is attached
Any help much appreciated.

How Do You Call A Macro From VB
I wanted to zoom an avi but could not find how, now I have fond how but I don't no how to impliment it in VB the information is as follows:
The MCIWndSetZoom macro resizes a video image according to a zoom factor. This marco adjusts the size of an MCIWnd window while maintaining a constant aspect ratio. You can use this macro or explicitly send the MCIWNDM_SETZOOM message.
Handle of the MCIWnd window.
Zoom factor expressed as a percentage of the original image. Specify 100 to display the image at its authored size, 200 to display the image at twice its normal size, or 50 to display the image at half its normal size.
So how do you do the above in VB and with a clip loaded using the MCI control?

Openning Excel And Running Macro From Word - Macro
Ok - I have a DB which I export to Excel, I then run a macro to "Groom The Data". I then run word and run a Macro (MailMerge to print labels) which retrieves data from the excel spreadsheet groomed above. Everything is working fine, despite my novice knowledge of VB, but I would like to do this in a single click.
I use a command line shortcut to Launch word and automatically have it run the macro, but I still have to Launch Excel and manually run its macro first.
I did not find a command line switch to make excel launch and run a macro. Is there any way I can Lauch Word have its Macro link to excel, then launch and run the excel macros before performing the macro I have set up in word (mailmerge)
In Other Words I have working macros in Word and Excel, I want the Word Macro to force the Excel macro to run before completing the rest of its duties.

Call Word Macro From XAL Or Other Application
I need to call a word macro in a local document from the program Navision C5 (an XAL application). I think the way to do it is the same as calling from a command line.
Now i merge some data into a document created from a dot file. The merging interface is now a dll file wich I haven't coded myself, because I'm N00B
After the merge is done I have my merged document. Now I want to run a macro to process the merged infos. If I code a macro in the .dot file, the macro will run before the merge is done.
So I need a way to call a macro from the application i merge from, wich knows when the merge is done.
Or to make a macro that will run after the mailmerge. Either solution will be fine.

New Project: Macro, VBA, Or VB ?
I have to keep a daily log in Excel for my job to show what I do all day for my bosses. I track the time a task starts, stops, task description, excel calculates total time, and the department I charge back my time to. I am now being required to sort all this data on a monthly basis, and give a total time for each department I've done work for.
This is my project. I want to point my application to the excel file (XLS) and have it read in 5 worksheets (1 per work day), error check to make sure a value is in each required field, total up the times and departments, and crete a 'summary' XLS file that I could then email off to my bosses.
Whew, now for what will be my first question in this project. I am not sure if I should use VBA or VB to perform this. While I am not totally new to VB, I am still an amateur. I don't know a whole lot about VBA, but this forum seems to be a pretty solid resource along with the help files. I already have a decent library built up on VB 5 and 6, but nothing at all for VBA.
Any ideas on which direction I should go? Thanks for lending me your experience!

Outlook Macro Project
I'm a VB newbie, but an experienced programmer. I first thought I'd do this task in perl after exporting a .csv file, but decided it would probably be easier to do it with an Outlook (2000) macro, especially since I'm doing it for work and don't have perl installed here.
I have a public folder in Outlook containing about 40,000 messages. Each message has the same basic format: addressees at the top, sender's name and street address, followed by the message body. I need to extract the sender names and addresses and put them into a text file. I only want to extract each name and address once, and some occur multiple times.
This will involve having line-by-line access to each message within a public folder. The duplicates can be identified by email address. If this is possible, what would the basic steps be?
Unprotecting A Project Using A Macro
Here's my problem...
I created a spreadsheet that contains macros and there are now over 300 copies of this file being used by remote users.
There is an error in one of the macros, so I am writing a fix to correct the error - I will email this to each of the users to correct the spreadsheets. So far, so good...
However, before I sent the original file out, I protected the project to prevent the users accessing the macros. Now I can't figure out how to unprotect the project as part of a macro so that my fix will work!
Can anyone help me? I know the password, but I don't know how to tell vb this!!
Any help would be welcome - I don't fancy telling my boss that we have to fix 300 spreadsheets manually or send new ones out and the users will lose their work!
I have tried searching this forum already, but haven't found anything yet that has given me much hope!
Convert VBA Macro To VB Project
I've written a simple program as a macro in excel to parse a text file and display the output in a listbox on a form. The text file is constantly being added to by another program and my script refreshes the list box every second with the new parsed data.
Now I want to write this as a stand alone executable as whilst my script is running I can't use excel for anything else.
Are there any VB compilers which are free and will allow me to do this? (I do not particularly want to spend money on a compiler for 1 simple project)
Also how similar is the syntax from VBA and VB, as to be honest I'm not too familiar with either?
Thankyou in advance for any help/advice you might be able to supply.
Calling A Macro In A Different Project
I have a macro within Excel which opens all workbooks within a specified folder. For each of these workbooks I need to call a macro that exists within the workbook.
I'm having problems getting VBA to do the call using a variable as the workbook name (the module & macro names can be specified as a constant). In fact I'm even having problems doing the external call when I explicitly write out the workbook name in the call.
Thanks for your help.
