2 Copies Of The Same Workbook Open In Task Manager
Oct 3, 2006
I have had some problems closing down a workbook that I have. During a save and close.
A duplicate file appears and causes considerable time delay...sometimes even causes a windows crash. I can't find the source of the problem, but I have noticed that in the Windows Task Manager, the file is there as well, yet not visible on the screen.
Some of my excel files, which are not massive seem to crash my computer when saving or recalulating or even using some filters. The files show as not responding for a couple of mins then come back to life after completing the requested action. Often this is not a complicate task that can cause this.
When this is happening the CPU usage shown on task manager is 99 for the excel file.
This doesn't happen on any other program, I can use word and powerpoint etc with no issues. Its just excel that my computer has a problem with.
This is really frustrating as I can end up twiddling my thumbs for 5 mins unable to do anything, when I just want the file to save or re calculate. I already use manual calculation on anything file more than 500 lines to work with the situation.
I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.
Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using
I do'nt know really my problem is regarding excel or with windows, actually stange thing starts happening, I open multiple excel files but only one general excel instance is showing on the task bar. If I need to switch between the file I have to minimise the one I am using and then select other to open it. Even shortcut Alt+Tab switch is not working to switch between the excel files.
I've been working on a userform that I've been adapting from a workbook I had set up to record real time stats. Its pretty much where i want it to be now and I am trying to focus on using the stats created by the individual users to populate team stats. There will be many users using this and many different teams. so i imagine, it wouldn't take too long for just one workbook to fill up and cause problems. Would i be correct in thinking that an IF statement in my current code (that's set up to send to one master sheet at the moment) that will pick out the manager/users name from the userform and send the data to the respective teams workbook, would solve this problem. Or am i over thinking this and is there a more simple option.
Code: Private Sub UpDate_Raw_Click() Dim SourceRange As Range Dim DestRange As Range Dim DestWB As Workbook Dim DestSh As Worksheet Dim Lr As Long
The below code opens up the printpreview window. This does not allow to select the correct (or change) printer it will automatic use the default printer.
Is there a way for the code to open the print window so I can change the printer and select number of copies?
Sub Print_Button() Dim ws As Worksheet, cell As Range Set ws = Sheets("main") Set cell = Range("g2000").End(xlUp) Do Until cell.Value "" Set cell = cell.Offset(-1, 0) Loop ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = ("A2:" & cell.Address) ws.PrintPreview End Sub
I am trying to make certain changes to the page setup on all sheets in a workbook. Here is my code but something is not working. I think I need to somehow select the next sheet because the macro is only performing the task on the active worksheet. My Visual Basic skills are somewhat limited so I'm sure this is not the most efficient way.
I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.
I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.
I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need
A prompt to open workbook Copy range (c8,d69) Close work sheet Paste special .value (c8,D69)
I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.
I have an excel workbook that serves as a master workbook. I have to create 30 copies of this workbook, 1 for each site. Each workbook will have small differences in the data held. This is because I will refresh the sheet before saving it. There is a dropdown list on the 1st tab of the workbook that contains the names of the sites. The sequense, I suppose would be like: select the next name on the dropdown list"calculate" the spreadsheet to enable the refreshsome sort of "save-as" with the name from the dropdown list forming the name of the file. The Master file must be kept intact.select the next name from the dropdown listcalculate the sheet ........and so on I have a few other things I will add to the script like Protect Sheet etc.
I have a table that lists names, eligibility and # of people. That is just one worksheet. I have a total of 30 worksheets in that workbook. The column with the names is completely filled out. I entered a number in the eligibility and # of people columns and Excel copied all three cells (name, eligibility and # of people) to the same cells on all of the worksheets. I have no formula in any of the cells, nor do I have anything linked.
I'm looking for information on building a macro that will automate making copies of a spreadsheet into another workbook that contains very particular information. My master sheet has lists of my customers and the rep's that service them. What I need to do is have macro buttons for each rep. that will pull all the shops that they service and all information for these shops into another spreadsheet.
This is probably a VBA thing, but there might be a simpler solution. Either would be grand!
Basically, I have a four sheet workbook that needs to be printed out in its entirety (no problem doing that ); however, I would like the final sheet (called "Room Data") to be printed, let's say ten times.
So basically I'd get a single print of the first three sheets and ten of the "Room Data".
Any ideas on how to do this without having to manually print the final sheet multiple times or creating ten identical sheets in the workbook?
Consider two instances of Excel - one with a workbook containing a chart and some VBA code, the other containing a blank workbook. When I paste a chart from the first instance of Excel to the other, all the VBA code from the original workbook is also pasted into a new third hidden workbook in the second instance of Excel! If that weren't weird enough ON WINDOWS XP (but not Windows 2000) if the VBA code included WorkbookOpen or AutoOpen this code is executed in the second instance of Excel, which of course fails if it references sheets that only existed in the workbook open in the first instance of Excel! This is the first time I've seen the same version of Excel do different things on different versions of Windows! Example attached - What's going on!? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;...note: this does not happen when pasting charts between workbooks open in the SAME instance of Excel
I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim dTime As Date dTime = Time If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _ dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then ImportData End If End Sub
This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?
My Splash screen opens a few seconds after the workbook has loaded. Is there a way to make the workbook open minimzed until the the splash screen closes then open properly? What I trying to say is that only the splash screen is visible until it closes.
I would like to write a Sub that will see if a workbook is open and if it is not then open it. I know how to have a macro automatically open a workbook, but I run into problems when the macro runs and tries to open an already opened workbook.
I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code I´m using for tranfering the sheet
Sub Transfer_Sluttet() If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then Application.DisplayAlerts = False Set ws = ActiveSheet Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2") 'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook. 'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want. Application.DisplayAlerts = True End If End Sub
This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it
If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................
I have data that daily needs to be refreshed and printed to pdf.
I figure the simplest way to do this would be to task schedule the workbook to open daily. Then on open it will refresh the data, print it after all data has been refreshed and close the workbook.
I set it up originally without the need to print so I have all the queries set to refresh when opening the file, however when I now try and put the code to print to pdf on the workbook open event it runs before the queries are finished running. (Query notes: queries were created through Microsoft query, and are accessing a MySQL database queries set to refresh when opening the file queries set to enable background refresh).
Code: Sub CopyRow()' 'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied. ' Dim cCell As Range Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1) Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet2").Select Rows("2:2").Select
Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.
I'm trying to figure out a way to find a specific sheet in a workbook that does not contain the macro. Within the macro I have a cell which holds the name of the specific sheet I would like to find but I can't get it to work for some reason...
