View Full Version : Solved: Help needed with VBA for Alt+F11

04-29-2010, 04:57 AM
I have a userform with a command button on it. I want to be able to open the vba editor from this button. I tried to record a macro that would record the keystrokes Alt+F11 but that didn't work. Had a search of the net and can't find a solution, any suggestions gratefully received.

Hello xld
Thank you for your reply. I have attached a workbook with your code in the command button. When pressed the following error comes up

Run-time error '1004':
Programatic access to Visual Basic Project is not trusted

You have to trust access to projects to use this approach, Tools>Macros>Security...>Trusted Publishers, and check the bottom box.

Hello xld
Many thanks for that answer which applies to 2003. I think I am in the fortunate position where I have 2003 on my laptop and 2007 on my pc.
Where is that 'Trusted Publishers' located in 2007.
I have looked in Developer/ Macro Security/Trusted Publishers and that is blank.

Hello Me
I think I have found the solution for myself.
Go to
Developer/Macro Security/Trusted Locations/Add New Location
e.g. F:\Documents and Settings\The long winded mapper\open tool\
then choose Macro Settings and tick 'Trust access to the VBA project object model'
It works

There are times when the difference between 2003 & 2007 is so similar that if you follow the concept offered, a solution can be found. Whilst VBA Express is a learning website, we do expect those asking for assistance to have a go at the work themselves. I'm glad you have followed this concept
