    I managed to hide the status bar in Excel 2013 using the code below. I can open a new workbook without the status bar. But when I open a saved workbook, it opens the saved workbook and a new workbook. How can I open just the saved workbook alone without opening a new workbook?

    Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Application.DisplayStatusBar = False
    Workbooks.Add
    ThisWorkbook.Close False
    End Sub

    Hi PNRao,

    I want to learn Excel VBA but I can not understand that how can I learn Excel VBA?

  8. PNRao July 2, 2015 at 12:16 AM

    Hi Deepa,
    The best way is to start with simple macros with Macro Recorder and Try to understand the Excel Object Model. You can follow our tutorials where we have provided numerous examples on Excel VBA.

    However, we are going to start our online classes in couple of weeks. You can joint if you are interested.

    Thanks-PNRao!

    Hi PNRao,

    How can I pick the data in the cell to a vba variable then display in a text box arranged according to my preference.

    Sub sbPickDataFromCellsofExcelApplication()
    
    'Pick data from a Celll to Variable
    
    myVar = Cells(1, 5) ' this is Row 1 and Column 5
    'Or myVar=Range("E5")
    
    'Assign the Variable value To a Text Box
    
    TextBox1.Text = myVar
    
    'OR You can directly assign the Cell or Range value
    'TextBox1.Text = Cells(1, 5)
    
    End Sub
