My collection of sample macros

  • Copy those macros.
  • Open Visual basic
  • Find a module in a workbook you would like to post it to
  • Paste it there.

Macros from the internet do not have to all the time. These are tested and work for my computer

.Attachments.Add ActiveWorkbook.FullName
.display
End With
Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub

ActiveSheet.Name = "Obsah"
For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
With ActiveSheet
.Hyperlinks.Add _
Anchor:=ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 1), _
Address:="", _
SubAddress:="'" & Sheets(i).Name & "'!A1", _

    LastRowIndex = UsedRng.Row - 1 + UsedRng.Rows.Count
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
 
    For RowIndex = LastRowIndex To 1 Step -1
        If Application.CountA(Rows(RowIndex)) = 0 Then
            Rows(RowIndex).Delete

14 Remove special characters

This is a custom Excel function made to remove Czech special characters. You simply use by putting =NOSPECIAL(text) into a cell. Cannot be placed into personal macro workbook!

Function NOSPECIAL(thestring As String)
Dim A As String * 1
Dim B As String * 1
Dim i As Integer

Const AccChars = "áäčďéěíĺľňóôőöŕšťúůűüýřžÁÄČĎÉĚÍĹĽŇÓÔŐÖŔŠŤÚŮŰÜÝŘŽ"
Const RegChars = "aacdeeillnoooorstuuuuyrzAACDEEILLNOOOORSTUUUUYRZ"

For i = 1 To Len(AccChars)
    A = Mid(AccChars, i, 1)
    B = Mid(RegChars, i, 1)
    thestring = Replace(thestring, A, B)
Next

NOSPECIAL = thestring
End Function
