  • 5. Some recalcitrant custom cell styles
    Hi, I had a problem with multiple custom cell styles that don't allow me to convert an excel 2007 file to excel 2003. I found a VBA example to delete all those custom cell styles easily: Sub style_remove() On Error Resume Next Dim mpStyle As Style For Each mpStyle In ActiveWorkbook.Styles If Not mpStyle.BuiltIn Then mpStyle.Delete End If Next mpStyle End Sub But there are some recalcitrant custom cell styles like: 386grabber=VGA.3GR _100301_VC outlook Oral Care France shell=progman.exe m AeE[0]_INQUIRY A AeEINQUIRY A A[0]_INQUIRY A AINQUIRY A C?ACoE C?ACoE _BRANDTTL Porcentagem_06'97 ??_(A1)BOQ and even if I try to delete them manually, I hear a system sound (but no error message is displayed) and the cell styles selection screen is closed before I can right-click on custom cell style. It looks like invalid character... do you have an idea to definitively delete those recalcitrant custom cell styles ?? Many thanks, Zarkoff

Strike-through an entire row.

OK... I need to know if there is a way I can strike through the text on
a row by highlighting the row with the defunkt information and
activating a macro.

Let's see if I can give an example.

Say I'm entering data in, row by row... Each row's data is SIMILAR but
not the same. 
Now let's say that apon review I notice that one of the row is
I need to be able to highlight the row (Presumably by selecting the
corresponding number on the left hand side {1,2,3 etc}) then I need to
run a macro (that will eventually be tied to a button) and then be done
the macro would turn the text .RED  and then strike through the
information. Is that even possible? if so... can you help me?!

Thanks a ton, Josh

You can select an entire row with Shift-Space too.  The following code will
make the entire row red (that the cell pointer is in).

Sub RedStrike()
    With Selection.EntireRow.Font
      .Strikethrough = True
      .ColorIndex = 3
      End With
End Sub

I did this by recording a macro, then taking out a bunch of stuff and
tweaking it a bit.  You may wish to assign a shortcut to run it quickly from
the keyboard.  Tools - Macro - Macros.  Select the macro, and click Options.
There's a place to put in a shortcut.  I used Shift-R.  It wound up
Ctrl-Shift-R.  The Excel shortcuts don't use Shift, AFAIK.

1.Error--"try selecting only entire rows, entire columns, or just groups of cells"

I've looked online for help and found the following.  I tried following the
directions, but it doesn't seem to do anything.  The original row shows 2
selected rows (even when I try to select only one to delete the other) and
when I follow these directions, it inserts 2 rows.  :
