I have a piece of code that was written by someone else (namely Phil_V, from these very forums) that only works in versions of Excel before 2007. I was just hoping that someone could update the code for me?
I know it's a lot to ask, but I simply don't have the expertise to do it myself I really appreciate any help received.
I wrote a macro to list all the excel files from a directory and its sub-directories to an excel sheet. It is working in excel 2003 but shows error (object does not support this action) in 2007. Actually I have copied almost this entire macro from excel 2007 help only. Can somebody modify this to use in both the versions of excel?
I am trying to search a folder that is selected by the user for all .jpg files, and then place all those pictures onto a certain spreadsheet within the excel file. It also formats the pictures. Following is the Private Sub BatchProcessThumb2x3() Msg = "Select a file containing the photos you want to insert." Directory = GetDirectory(Msg) If Directory = "" Then Exit Sub If Right(Directory, 1) "" Then Directory = Directory & ""
On Error Resume Next With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = Directory .Filename = "*.jpg" .SearchSubFolders = False .Execute
' Select begining range Worksheets("Thumbnail (2x3)").Select Range("B4").Select ' Loop through all files and process them
I have a macro running in Excel 2003 that uses application.filesearch. I discovered through another post that this is not included in Excel 2007. A replacement was suggested and I cannot get it to work. Can someone show me how to replace application.filesearch in my macro with the replacement code? I'm a real novice and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Or if you have a better solution I'm open for that as well.
Here's the original that works in 2003, the suggested replacement code will follow.
Sub GoGetData() Dim lCount As Long Dim wbResults As Workbook Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook
In the following thread, richphillips wonders about Application.Filesearch Application.filesearch In Office 2007
Is there a replacement for this? I have several macros that use Application.Filesearch and I would like it to work not only with Excel 2003 but also with Excel 2007. This is the function
Function CreateFileList(FileFilter As String, _ IncludeSubFolder As Boolean) As Variant ' returns the full filename for files matching ' the filter criteria in the current folder Dim FileList() As String, FileCount As Long CreateFileList = "" Erase FileList If FileFilter = "" Then FileFilter = "*.*" ' all files Debug.Print CurDir strFolder = BrowseForFolderShell(, , , 0) If strFolder = "" Then MsgBox "You Cancelled" Exit Function End If............
Found code to find files and return results.. edited to my liking(barely.. i have no VBA knowledge).. it works on the PC I use. This is intended to be on a shared folder across a network for others to use, and it is not returning any results on the other PCs. This computer has Office 2003.. the rest have 2000. I can NOT figure out the problem. I have read in searches that Application.Filesearch is not reliable, but I do not know how to change it to any other type of coding Attachment 26214
Sub SrchForMSDS() Dim i As Long, z As Long, Rw As Long Dim ws As Worksheet Dim y As Variant Dim Fil As String, FPath As String y = Application.InputBox("Search for file(s) named:", "MSDS Search") If y = False And Not TypeName(y) = "String" Then Exit Sub Application. ScreenUpdating = False With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "\My-SbscompanyMSDS Database" ' \#.#.#.#companyMSDS Databse or My-Sbs .SearchSubFolders = True .Filename = y................
I'm trying to use Application.FileSearch in a procedure to open files in a folder one by one and then do some stuff. It works fine when I developed it on my Windows machine but won't work on the Mac platform. The culprit instruction seems to be the
Application.FileSearch instruction, and I've also tried what I think may be a Mac equivalent Application.FileFind, but I get the 'Object doesn't support this action' error.
So I wrote a simple procedure below just to test the .FileSearch instruction but this fails in the same way.
Any ideas anyone? I've commented out lines which relate to Windows syntax.
I have created a macro that must extract data from other workbook. It opens the workbook, with an exist, and isopened control, and then open it. It´s running well, but i found while making another macro, that if the file direction is "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls", then i cant run the exist control. Next you have the code im using. In the first version, i had .LookIn = ThisWorkbook.Path. Now I´ve tried:
1. Dont put .LookIn, and fName is "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls" 2. .LookIn = "http://www.xxx.com:8080/" .FileName = "Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls"
Both are failing, it says, the file doesnt exist. If i try directly WorkBooks.Open "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls", it opens correctly, but i would have a control, because the original file name could change, and the macro would crash if does.
Function OpenWorkBook(fName) As Integer If Exists(fName) Then If (IsOpen(fName) = False) Then Workbooks.Open (fName) OpenWorkBook = True Else MsgBox "The WorkBook " & originWorkBookName & " is already open." OpenWorkBook = -1 End If Else.........................
It seems to me that Application.FileSearch is not working with XP SP3.
I have a code that used Application.FileSearch and it works perfectly at home. But when I use in the office, it does not work. When I click on HELP menu, the one in the office has a Microsoft Excel 2003 SP3 whereas the one at my home does not have the SP3.
I've been trying to get this to function correctly. The following code does pull out a list of all filepaths, but what I want to to is access the properties of the file.
Basically I select a customer from a combo box, and from this the code does a vlookup to determine what folder the reports are stored in. The list is then entered onto the worksheet 'FilesInReportFolder'. There is some commented out code as I've ben trying to come up with a simple way to remove the 'xls' from the end of the string, but din't worry about that.
I've found a website that suggests adding .name to the lineto get the name instead of the path, but what I really want is be able to pull out other details about the file.
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Combobox1value = ComboBox1.Value
Dim rng As Range Dim RowNo As Integer Dim NoOfFiles As Integer Dim foundfilepath As Integer Dim FilePath As String
I have been trying to process Excel files in a directory with the following
Sub FindExcelFiles() Dim foldername As String Dim FSO As Object Dim fldr As Object Dim file As Object Dim cnt As Long foldername = "c:usersseagreendesktopTuesdayFeb102009week ending feb 7 2009 esting2" Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject") Set fldr = FSO.GetFolder(foldername) For Each file In fldr.Files If file.Type Like "*Microsoft Office Excel*" Then cnt = cnt + 1 End If Application.StatusBar = "Now working on " & ActiveWorkbook.FullName DoSomething ActiveWorkbook Next file Set file = Nothing Set fldr = Nothing Set FSO = Nothing Range("A1").Value = cnt End Sub Here's the stub for the subroutine that's being called:
Sub DoSomething(inBook As Workbook) 'Massage each workbook 'Debug.Print "Hello" Debug.Print ActiveWorkbook.FullName End Sub I am using Excel 2007. I found out I cannot use Application.Filesearch as Microsoft has dropped this method for 2007. My problem now is that I just see "Now working on c:usersseagreendesktopTuesdayFeb102009week ending feb 7 2009 esting2file1.xls written six times in the immediate window.
I am trying to determine in code whether a file exists in a certain location. This seems to be very slow even in a folder which contains just one file. Is there any way to speed up this process? Three seconds seems like a long time especially given that I will have to loop through this Sub many times. The files I am looking for are CSV so I can't use msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks unless I can modify what file extensions this looks for. I only started dabbling with VBA a few weeks ago so it is entirely possible I'm barking up the wrong tree and should be using another method to acheive my aims.
Sub CISORTEST() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:TEMP" .SearchSubFolders = False .Filename = "MYCSVFILENAME" .MatchTextExactly = True .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles
When I noticed that FileSearch was missing after I updated to Office 2007, I decided to recreate the class and save it as a file to import anytime I needed to use it. I tried to use as little code as possible, so if there is some property you would need to add then you may have to add it yourself, but this will at least give you most of the funcitonality of the original Class without having to update your existing code too much.
You have to just reference the class and then it can still be used in a with block or however you are accustomed. Here are the two class files that I have, the first I named FileSearch (go figure):
Dim pLookIn As String Dim pSearchSubFolders As Boolean Dim pFileName As String Public FoundFiles As New Collection
Public Property Get LookIn() As String LookIn = pLookIn End Property Public Property Let LookIn(value As String) pLookIn = value End Property Public Property Get SearchSubFolders() As Boolean LookIn = pSearchSubFolders...................................
Before upgrade to Microsoft 2007 this code worked well (for 3 years). I marked it well with big space & comment where it gets hung up. The line says: With Application.Filesearch. All is well up to that point. I have another program that seems to have a problem when it comes to "With Application" as well. It must have to do with the upgrade, because my programs have been used daily, and it was right after the upgrade that it got buggy. All of the users were upgraded to Microsoft 2007 at the same time.

I have a macro that searches through a certain location for Excel files. The program and files were made in Office 2003. When another user runs the macro in Office 2007, the files are not recognized or the macro does not search, I'm not sure. Either way, the files are never located in their folder location. Any thoughts or ways around this?? The top part of the code is posted below,
Do With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch 'Change path to suit .LookIn = "C:Documents" .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks '.Filename = " Book*.xls"
If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbooks in folder For lCount = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count ' Loop through all. 'Open Workbook x and Set a Workbook variable to it Set wbResults = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=.FoundFiles(lCount), UpdateLinks:=0)
I was using the following macro on Excel 2000, 2002 & 2003 for many years without a fuss. Recently, I upgraded to Excel 2007. When I run the macro now, I get the following error message:- Run-time error 445 Object doesn't support this action.
Sub test() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Documents and SettingsDesktopCommercial Database" .SearchSubFolders = True .Filename = "*.*" .TextOrProperty = "BANK" .MatchAllWordForms = True .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles If .Execute() > 0 Then MsgBox "There were " & .FoundFiles.Count & _ " file(s) found." End If End With End Sub
Additional info:- The 1st line of my code which is With Application.FileSearch is highlighted in yellow when I run this macro.
in adapting the previous code to MS Excel 2007. I have found that the "application.filesearch" object no longer exist in 2007! The code goes to a file path and extracts the text and places the data in the specified excel column.
Has anybody created a listing of possible alternative options for the various GET.CELL functions? Ideally, since it gives the annoying warning message at startup, I would prefer not to use the outdated GET.CELL function.
I am specifically interested in determining if a given cell is currently visible (height=0). I can do this with GET.CELL or with a very simple VB Macro - I am just wondering if there is a way to accomplish the task just through built-in excel functions.
CELL("filename") gives you the name of the current workbook but if you switch to another workbook and then come back, the name has switched to the other workbook. You have to refresh to make the name switch back to that of the workbook you used the formula in.
What alternatives exist, short of writing some VBA, which is an option, to fetching the name of the workbook via a formula and having it remain the name of that workbook when you go away and come back again?
I have a cell for which I need the only options for data to be entered from a list in two different tabs from which I understand cant be done but is it possible to have two drop down options for the same cell?
The attached spreadsheet should explain this slightly better...
I have some code that I am using to save and close the active workbook, this code works perfectly, but I need the code to also close the excel application, not just the workbook. I have tried active window.close but it didn't work even though when I recorded the actions that was the code that I was give.
background -I set a task in my OS to open the workbook, then I wrote some code on the Workbook.open trigger to run and then save and close, but only the activebook closes.
I encountered a strange anomaly where a worksheet "freezes" when Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False. I can only replicate this in Excel 2013. Excel 2010, for example, works perfectly well, and as expected.
To replicate the anomaly (Excel 2013 only):
1. In a new workbook, insert an ActiveX command button on "Sheet1", no code required.
2. Run the following code
3. Click on the command button.
4. Now click on any cell and try to enter a value.
Is your screen "frozen"? If so, go to another sheet, return to Sheet1 and try again. Does it work?
Here's an alternative code for MyTest() that causes no problems. Can spot the difference? Is there a reasonable explanation?
Even more curious, call the following MyTest3 on Workbook_Open() and the workbook behaves. Run MyTest3 again and the screen starts freezing(!)
How I can directly write info from an external application to an Excel sheet
Actually, I'm using a special dll collection to do it, but I would need to buy the 64 version soon. Problem is I use only one function of the entire collection so I want to look on how to create it my self. Basically, it took data from my charting software and write directly to my Excel Worksheet.Cell
I need to resize Excel pretty frequently - I need to size the whole Excel app tall and all the way to the left, taking up about a third of my screen - then maximize it - then back to tall and left, etc. I can do it by clicking the "Restore Down" icon in the top right corner, but I can't figure out how to do it using the keyboard.
I've tried Ctrl-F8, Ctrl-F9 and Ctrl-F10, but they all act on individual workbooks within the Excel application. I want to resize the whole Excel application. Does it exist?
I have the following code which edits an excel file and saves it in a different format, I think want the code to take this newly saved file and open it in an external application (Softplot) and then save it through this new application.
VB: Sub FormatMacro1a(ws As Worksheet) ws.Copy Rows(1).Delete Columns("D:E").Cut Destination:=Columns("J:K") Columns("F:K").Cut Destination:=Columns("D:I") Range("E1:E201").Value = "0"
As it stands I have the file saving in a new format and I can open a specific file in softplot through VBA however where I am getting stuck is opening my newly saved file and then saving it.
I was wondering if it is possible to have cells formatted based on the presence of an autofilter? I have a large worksheet, and to clean it up I would like to make the entire sheet (minus the category headers) invisible. Then, when the user applies a filter, the cells become visible.
