excel macro problem

excel macro problem

excel macro problem

I have made some "Macro" modification(copy from some previous file) on the excel file but don't know why every time I try to retrieve this file then it will automatically link/refer to the previous excel file/worksheet.  Could what how u  could help?

Basically, I have to write an instruction and teach other users to use this template.  Once, the instruction is completed then I may need to see what macro/VB that he could be built into this template.

I tried to you export the VBA module and import it into the new file but it dus not work.
Cud u gimme any suggestions

RE: excel macro problem

I don't shink the problem is in macro. Try to run a word search for the name of the previous spreadsheet in the spreadsheet and in VBA. You might find it in some formulas..

RE: excel macro problem


I have found that when I copy a file from within EXCEL with the SAVE AS command, all the existing links remain pointing to the original file sheets.
To avoid this, what I normally do is to copy and rename the the file from outside EXCEL using Window Explorer.   This way the the links point to the other sheets in the new file.

Maybe EXCEL does the same when you have a macro.
