make the excel files executable?

  • Do you mean completly stand alone running external to the Excel environment? In this case refer to XL-Dennis comments.


    Or do you want to have it so that it has an *.exe extension but still runs in the Excel environmet? See attached....

  • Hi Aarron


    I did not know this is / was your work, it’s been posted before on this site and I felt very good, something I have used.


    Upside is now I know where it originated so I can credit you accordingly, only right. I know you do not mind others using and learning from it even creating their own goodies, but credit I say where due.


    BTW Aaron, we well know each other and I’m proud you here on Ozgrid, stay in touch my friend.


    Speak freely in U2U or email of you wish

  • Hello Jack,


    BTW, the person who removed my signature textbox from the file didn't bother to change the file attributes which still lists me as the author and has the link to my website. They also didn't notice they allowed their real name to be listed as the person who last saved the file.


    That must be embarrassing. :o


  • Aaron,


    Please accept my apologies for posting your work. I was not attempting in any way to claim credit for it. I'm acutaly a little confussed because I don't know why it way attached to my post, it's not even in the context of the thread regarding *.exe and excel files ?????? My guess is that I hit the wrong file for the attachment ??? Or that I make the wrong file into an *.exe for an example ??? Whatever the case may be I apologise unreservedly and can only hope that the link that Dave has included to your site will help remedy the situation. (thanks Dave)


    Regards

    Hi Aaron,


    I hadn't read the rest of the posts before posting my last response.


    I was not worried about my real name showing up as there was no malicious intent involved in my mistaken post. Please be confident in that fact.


    If I had wanted to try to claim authorship or ownership of your work I would have been a little more careful in the disguising and posting of it.


    Thanks AJW



    XL-Dennis,


    I accept your flaming in good humour :D see.


    As pointed out to Aaron it was a mistake.


    Regards

    Dave,


    I would like to know how some people have gotten hold of my email address when I specifically didn't tick the "Make e-mail address viewable by others?" option ?? :puzzled:


    Thanks

    I have no idea. As you can see from your posts there is no email button for you and when I click on your "profile" button I can see no email. What makes you think somebody has got your email from this board :question:


    It wasn't in the orginal Workbook you posted was it? :puzzled:




  • No problem, although I am still a little disappointed to see that someone removed the signature from one of my examples.
