Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Check Box

Q: Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Check Box

Good afternoon,

I use a spread sheet which contains Check Boxes, that I manually tick to show a task has been fully completed. I have a basic formula that calculates returned items, and once it reaches 0 (all returned) I tick the box. I wish to have the Check Box auto-tick itself once the returned items count reaches 0. I'm damned certain this is possible, but beyond my abilities. I know you can have formulas to display text once a Check Box is ticked, I am kinda trying to do it the other way around.

Thanks for any help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You are correct, it is possible.

What you need to do is learn the Visual Basic for Applications coding in Excel. Then you can add code that runs every time the sheet calculates (basically when something changes on the page). The code can check the status of a cell and change the status of another cell (or object in your case) based on criteria you have coded.

I'm not a programmer but playing with Excel Macros (VBA coding) and manipulating excel cells is a long time hobby of mine.

The easiest way to learn is to record Macro's and then study the code. It is easier learning the code if know first hand what it does. After you are familiar with how the code works, you will be surprised at how easy it is to code your own macros. Once you have the macro working for you, it is easy to move the code and have it run every time the sheet loads, calculates, closes, or several other possibilities.

Are these files you are working on local to your machine or are they over some sort of network? If they are network files, it may be timing out trying to create temp/caches of the file you are working on as undo procedures. If it's a network file save a copy of it to somewhere local on your computer and try editing it.

Well not really a problem with Excel, more of a memory problem with me. A few years back (in '03 Office) I collapsed the Excel file by way of a phone conversation. And now I forget nor find the way to un-collapse and get my lines 1 thru 95 back. Although I have used info on lines 96 and on. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm hoping someone can help me with a small project I have.

Essentially, I want to create a spreadsheet using Microsoft Office Excel 2010 that would act as a time-sheet. It would have two columns - the first being a start time and the second being an end time.

So, a cell in the first column might say 8:30am, while a cell in the second column might say 5:30pm. What formula or method do I need to use to have a cell in the third column automatically tell me how many hours were spent in that time (9)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

A:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

A:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.

Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

Microsoft Office 2010 is installed on my PC (Dell Studio XPS8100, Windows 7). Another member of the household has asked whether she can install Microsoft Works 9.0 on my PC, now that her PC is on its last legs. (She greatly prefers Works over Office, for its simplicity and because of her long-term familiarity with Works.) If Works 9.0 is installed onto my PC, would this cause problems for Office 2010, Works 9.0, and/or my PC? If so, are there workarounds? Thanks.

A:Microsoft Works 9.0 and Microsoft Office 2010 compatibility

The official "word" from Microsoft (pun intended) is that Office & Works can co-exist on the same PC.

Provided you do not intend to share documents between Office & Works (ie both suites will be used separately), there are no "workarounds" or special procedures you need to remember when using them.

I'm just wondering if the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit Office 2010 is worth the effort just like the jump from 32-bit OS's to 64-bit seems to be for the industry.

I read that Microsoft advised not to make the jump for Office 64-bit as it's too early and will give organisations some kind of compatability issues. They were saying to let 64-bit mature and consider it in the 2013 Office. What will you do?

A:Microsoft Office 2010

Hi there

1) Can you post a screen shot -- the only time I've ever been asked for an Office product key is when you start the INSTALL process. After installation you will get an Activate Office screen the first time you run any office application.

2) what Office programs open ?. you should only basically have Powerpoint, EXCEL and WORD applications in the student and teacher office editions.

3) Although this should really be 1) - Did you INSTALL office 2010 correctly. It's possible also you had some other versions of office on the machine too --these should really be removed before installing Office 2010.

Whenever installations get borked, I always recommend uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller before attempting to reinstall. Be sure to do the "Advanced" search, and delete everything that is found (Office leaves a lot behind).While you're at it, Publish a Snapshot using Speccy. I could probably guess at what hardware your netbook has, but I'm still curious. Sometimes large programs freeze on netbooks due to a low-power processor like the Intel Atom. I'd blame Office first, but we'll check both options before making a conclusion.

The document from the office was created in MS Office 2010 32-bit but saved as a 97-2003 compatible document since not everyone is on 2010.

Does it make any difference that the home pc is 64-bit MS Office for compatability problems?

I bought the new computer, which has no Microsoft Office on it, other than an offer to buy Office 2013.

This may be a dumb question but can I download Office 2010 since I had it before or will I need to buy it again or buy a newer vesion ? I have no product key for it because it was pre-loaded onto my old computer.

If so, as an alternative, are there any free programs out there that operate like Microsoft Office ? I have a few thumb drives that I cannot get into now because they are requiring Office to open them.

It was probably an OEM license which means it died with your old computer. You would need a full office license for it to be transferable which would mean you would have disks and a box with a license key or you would have an MS store login where you could manage your purchased products.

I found this to be a patch to the problem...
Easier solution to the above problem. It would appear that when downloaded normally, the browsers are flagging the file as being potentially unsafe, whereas DownThemAll! is not. It would also appear the the PowerPoint 2010 programmers failed to handle this in the code. So, the easiest way to get around this error is to navigate to the file on your computer, right-click it and go down to properties. In the box that pops up, go down to the security section (at the bottom) and unblock the file. Open file.

No problems for months. Now needed to hook on new network. Printing is fine in all programmes in Office and others (Thunderbird, Chrome, Foxit Reader, etc...). All except in Excel. The programme (Excel) does not see the printer, or when it does it does not let the printer be chosen. Printers are all Kyocera or Brother, but different models.

Any ideas?


A:Office 2010 nt in Excel, but will in other programs. Solutions?

If it's an existing worksheet created on your previous nw/printer then perhaps there could be something unique in the worksheet settings/attributes that the printer you are wanting to use can't handle.

Some things to try if you haven't done so already..

Can you select and print to another nw printer ok?
Can you create a new simple worksheet and print it ok to that printer?
Try deleting that printer and re-adding it.

Hope that helps

Hey, i've recently formatted my laptop , it is windows xp and i tried to install microsoft office 2010 at first, but there was an error saying ''microsoft office enterprise 2010 encountered an error during setup'' so then i tried to install microsoft office 2007 and the same error appeared, could somebody tell me what causes this error? i have installed this on many over computers and there was no problem so there is nothing wrong with the installer.

I installed a trial for Microsoft office 2010 when I was working on some college work to see if it would be worth upgrading. I have microsoft office 2003 already on my laptop. When the trial finished I unistalled the 2010 version but now when i try to open documents from e-mails it wont open up in the 2003 version. I have to then open up e.g word and find the file from there. Any ideas how i can change the settings to make Microsoft office 2003 the default for my documents.

I hope Microsoft can help me. a few days ago I reformatted my desktop PC which was running Vista and also ran Microsoft Office 2010 Professional. I installed Windows 7 on it plus my other software, but when I re-installed Office 2010 Professional and tried to activate it, I got the message "Product Key Invalid ."
My Office 2010 is a legal copy which I bought a few years back and has functioned perfectly up until I wanted to re-install it on my PC with Windows 7. I tried to activate it by phone with Microsoft in South Africa (where I live) but got the message that it was an "illegal copy", which it certainly is not. Can anyone help???

To me doesn't look nice at all.
My Favorite is actually Offfice 2003 which you can customize a lot to look exactly how you wanted.

Office 2007 has "Limited" customisation -- I prefer the BLACK toolbar etc

Done from the Big round file button in any application of 2007 . For example click the EXCEL options from the file button and you've got only 3 choices - Blue Silver or Black. Changing this in EXCEL (or other office app changes iot in the others as well).

Office 2003 had loads more options (but more complex to fiddle with of course).

I suppose there's always a trade off between "customiseability" and "Useability" -- but some times I think they just "Dumb it down" too much to keep it simple for the masses.

Dear Sir/Madam

I installed a trial version of Microsoft Office 2010 a while ago but as of recent I have had problems with it. I have tried to uninstall it with windows uninstaller and Ashampoo Uninstaller but all attempts have just kept this program intact on my computer so I went onto the Microsoft site and downloaded a new trial version and tried installing it which just made it worse, I thought I would be able to ovewrite this program.

Using Ashampoo I deleted the log which removed the software or so I thought the problem still happens on start up I receive a Window message which I have made a screen snapshot so that you can see what I mean and maybe be able to help me with this situation or if I install a full version would this sort the problem out

A:Microsoft Office 2010 Activation

Welcome to the forums.
Your english is (very) good.

I've also had an Office 2010 which came preinstalled and required activation. Same story: I wasn't able to activate it and it seemed to be a trial version, wasn't sure if I had a key...

Afterwards I bought a full version and I was able to activate it online each time after a reinstall of the system.

If you have the key inserted, that's good. You might also try the phone activation system if everything fails.

If you need to activate often on the same machine due to reinstalls, OS-testing:
Once you got it activated, you can backup the activation for later (can be used on same pc after a format/reinstall) by using Advanced Tokens Manager. This saves time and works even if you are offline when trying.

So I had an issue where I couldn't access Microsoft Office 2010.

I was told to uninstall Microsoft 2010 so I went to control panel>uninstall program>Microsoft 2010 English (I was told to not uninstall the Microsoft 2010 click to run). After I uninstalled Microsoft 2010 English, I couldn't find Microsoft 2010 click to run but I could still see it as an option of a program to uninstall. How do I get Microsoft Office 2010 back?

My wife, who is a school teacher, has been notified by her school they have an arrangement under which Microsoft are offering the school's staff a discount on Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus from c.£300 to £6.15, which is rather dramatic discount by the generous Mr Gates by anyone's standards. As we currently use Office in an earlier version, this is an attractive offer. My immediate reaction was to worry that we would need to upgrade to Windows 7 (we currently use Vista), but Microsoft have anticipated my concern by offering us copies of 7 as well, also at £6.15. I was wondering if anyone can see any problems with this offer. So is this a case of 'not looking a gift horse in the mouth' or are there hidden problems?

A:Microsoft Office Professional 2010

Sounds all fine to me. Companies are often generous with school systems. Future customers are among the users.

But is is not at all necessary to use Windows 7 to use the new office. On the other hand, it is a deal that you may not see again and an upgrade from Vista should proceed smoothly since they have the same kernel.

A:Microsoft Office 2010 not installing.

MS Office can be a bear.

If you have a failed install you probably have files and reg entries in your system which might prevent you from getting a good install.

I am not familiar with home and student but some flavors of Office have a repair option. You can go to programs and features in the control panel and right click on Office and see if it offers a repair. It may require inserting the install disk in the rom deck.

Another option is to insert the install disk and you may find a repair option.

Any way I found some good info from MS if you have to do an uninstall and cleanup before reinstalling.

You may be able to recover by doing a System Restore to a time before you did the Office 2010 uninstall.
To do that open Control Panel & select Recovery & follow through.

If that fixes the problem then you should back up all your Excel & other files that you wish to keep, then uninstall Office 2010 again & then copy your backed up files into Office 2013.

Try these,

1) Create a new administrator account.
2) Log on and launch the installer.

If things don't quite work perfectly now:

3) If you recieve errors accessing your ProgramData folder, use the TakeOwnership registry hack to take control of the entire ProgramData folder, and if needed, create a "Microsoft Office" folder with "Microsoft Office 2010 Tools" inside it under %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu.
4) Your error may return at the end of the installation, but don't worry, it's finished and Office is now installed. Switch user (don't log off!) and go back to your own user. Double-check that everything works. Now, to turn off your computer, press and hold the power button for ~five seconds. This will force the computer to shut down instantly, which will close the installer with the error without giving it the opportunity to roll back its changes.

If the problem continues, contact your computer manufacturer for support. I got this message before and after I uninstalled the previous version. What can I do?

Hi All,

I am receiving a Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2687455) 32-Bit Edition to install from Windows Update.

Yet, I have installed Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007. Do I install this Update or Hide it?

Operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit Service Pack 1.

Thank you!

Microsoft Office Starter 2010 won't reinstall.  I keep getting "files required to set up Microsoft Office Starter 2010 cannot be loaded.  Check your internet connection, then try again." (even though I am obviously connected to the internet).  I also get a "click-2-run configuration error."

Hi jmrpjb,

Please double-check if the program that you uninstalled is 'Word Starter 2010' or 'Office Starter 2010'? Please share the exact steps that you performed to uninstall it.

You may also try the following steps to repair the 'Office Starter' in the mean while:
- Click 'Control Panel' > 'Programs' > 'Programs and Features' > Locate 'Microsoft Office Starter - English' > 'Right click' it and select 'Change' > Select 'Repair' > Follow through with the repair process

- If the issue persists, you may also try to uninstall 'Click to run' and configure 'Office Starter' again: "Cannot be opened" error when you start an Office Starter 2010 program.

'Office Starter 2010' is a 'factory installed' program that may not be re-installed. If any vital file has been accidentally deleted; or the program could not be repaired by the above mentioned steps, you may have to try to restore the system settings back to 'factory defaults'.

You may want to have a close look at the following article also:

Hope this helps. Please share the findings; will take it forward.

I'm interested in buying Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010. It says you can use it on 3 computers in the same household. What happens if you use the 3 installs and then reformat one of the computers and want to install it again? Do you have to buy a new copy or will it work again?


A:Solved: Microsoft Office 2010 Question

I have done this when I replaced a motherboard. You don't need to buy another copy, but you may need to activate it by phone and explain that is is installed on only three computers.

I recently re-installed Office Pro 2010 and now Outlook configures the program each time I run it. I installed the latest Windows Updates and I have no problem with Word or Excel. They run like they should. I checked off the "run from my computer" box when I did the install. I even went back and loaded just Outlook from the Office Pro 2010 install disk, but it still configures before it opens. What should I do to correct this ridiculous behavior? TIA srloren

Hello everyone, I purchased a Windows 7 upgrade disk to upgrade my old Windows XP laptop, the IBM ThinkPad T43P. When I purchased the laptop, it comes with Microsoft Office 2010 Professional. I do not have the installation media or the license key code for it any more. I would like to upgrade since Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP but I want to keep Microsoft Office 2010 Professional. Is there a way to do that? Thank you very much, -G
