Hi

I've cobbled together (I know it's ugly and probably breaks every coding rule there is but I have no concept of how to code!!) a macro that gets the result i want.

basically it bins data collected by an electronic guage. my colleagues use the guages as well so this would save them time if i could share it.

It just seems to be saved in a hidden workbook called personal.xls. i tried exporting the .bas file but doesn't seem to appear in macro list when imported.........

Any help would be much appreciated you clever people :biggrin:

The personal.xls is your personal macro file which is stored on your personal computer, hence no one else has access to it.

You can create a new workbook, copy the macros to this file, and save this file to the network so your colleagues will have access to it. You can also create an add-in file from your macros. I am unsure how to do that, but it had been explained on this site before, so I would recommend searching this site for "create add-ins" if you want to go that route.

I know from what I am doing now, that an XLT file on the network is the best way to go.
That way, if you update it, then all can benefit from the new xlt file.

The key will be a button on the local template, or macro, whatever works best, that accesses the network macro.

My stuff works off the use of the previous file created, and then it creates a file based on variables ( date etc ).

So long as the drive label is consistent with colleagues then it works fine.
