    Excel 2003 macro won't work in Excel 2010

    I have an Excel 2003 macro that will not run in Excel 2010. The macro allows me to extract data from our accounting business system into Excel. However, since we have upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7, the macro will not work. I'm told it is because 2010 is 64bit and runs a newer VBA7.
    I know almost nothing about VBA programing. Is there something I can do to make Excel 2010 run the old 32 bit macro? Is there a magic combatability switch?

    I can't guarantee assistance on this, but can you post the code? That might help forum members identify lines that are incompatible. Also, when you say the macro doesn't work, do you mean it doesn't do anything, or does it throw an error code?

    Thanks BigAs,
    I get a Compile Error:
    The code in this project must be updated for use on 64-bit systems. Please review and update Declare statements and then mark them with the PtrSafe attribute.

    There appears to be multiple macros that run.

    Why have you split the code across 4 posts? Firstly it is attempting to create a commandbar which are no longer supported in Excel 2010. Attach a workbook with the code in
    Hope that helps.

    commandbars are supported in 2010.

    I reckon that either the JDISDATAEXTRACTOR_003Lib.JDISDataExtractor library is the problem or there are some api calls that have not been posted.

    if at first you don't succeed try doing it the way your wife told you to

    I was a bit short of time this morning, but CommandBars are not supported as such, they can be viewed in the Addins Tab

    the shortcut menus (like Cell and Row) are commandbars and you can still create your own popup menus so they are still supported just not used for the main toolbars. ;-)

    Sorry about the multiple posts. I'm new. I tried to put the code in a "quick reply".

    I have attempted to attach a sample workbook.

    Re: Excel 2003 macro won't work in Excel 2010

    you have api calls in module4 which need updating. the other referenced library may also be incompatible-hard to say without having it

    Thankyou all.
    It sounds like this is "above my pay-grade". I guess I will continue to use my work-a-round until we can hire someone to fix it. I was hoping there was a simple answer.

    Forgive my ignorance. Here is what I did. I simply copied the new code from you and then highlighted the old code in Module4 and pasted. It appears to have replaced the old with the new. However, I'm still receiving the error
    Compile error:

    @JP
    I really appreciate your help.

    Ok. I closed and reopened the workbook. In Excel 2003, from the menu at the top, I would go to DATA>JDIS DATA EXTRACTOR>IMPORT EXTRACT FILES(Ctrl+M). From there I could give it the directory location in the JDIS Database. Since I don't have that option in Excel 2010, I tried to Ctrl+M (i presume that is the shortcut) and Now I have a new error.
    Compile error:
    Can't find project or library
    I suspect that it is trying to find the database file?

    your buttons should be on the addins tab.

    open the vb editor and check tools-references to see if any are listed as MISSING:

    either you are missing some programs on your machine now or you need to try and find the new location of the .dll files in use. the references dialog should tell you the name of the dll files and you can search for them on your pc (make sure to search in hidden and system folders too). if you can't find them you will probably need to talk to your tech support team.

    That sounds managable. I will check into that.
    Thanks JP!
