Auto Save With Macro

Nov 12, 2012

I am using one spread sheet to store date that gets updated throughout the day and am pulling information form that sheet to another file. I need to save it to get the current data and I don't want to rely on the person entering data to remember to save. The sheet I want to save is called Log.

Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro

Oct 16, 2009

I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.

I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).

The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.

If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.

The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)

The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Auto Save As VBA Macro Every X Minutes?

Dec 20, 2008

I have found some posts about "Auto Saving" and Dave pretty much frowns upon that. But the program I use (via ODBC), for some reason doesn't see the changes I make unless the file is saved. I have it auto-saving right now, but was thinking, maybe it is better to export a copy.

What I would need, is the ability to take my current workbook and export it to a new file (overwriting that same file each time), and do this based on time or (even better) on a change in the data. My current workbook is set to pull from other CSV files, scraping our website, etc., and then I use Excel to format the data the way I want.

It would be cool, if I could export two versions each time too... one that would be like a archive of what the file was like when it changed, the other would be the one that just gets overwritten each time.

Love this site...tons of info...but dang am I not smart at this stuff. Half the time, I don't even get where to put the code...worksheet, module, workbook?

Auto Save To A File Via Macro Or Program

Apr 11, 2008

Is It Possible To Auto Save To A File Via A Macro?

What I Want To Do Is To Auto Save Directly To A Folder On Our System Via A Macro.

The Problem Is That Firstly It Will Need To Look Up A Cell ( D8 ) To Find Out The Job Number

Then It Will Have To Find The Folder On Our System ( Its On Desktop Under Job File Folder ) Then Comes The Hard Bit It Will Need To Locate That Job Number ( Cell D8 ) To Look Up The Relevant Folder To Put It In. All The Job Files Are Labelled Up Eg.( J2663 - Parry ) Then In That Folder Is A Sub Folder Called Docs Which It Needs To Be Saved In

Auto Answering Save As Dialogue Box During Macro Run

Aug 1, 2007

I have written a macro which opens a worksheet, performs various operations on it, and closes it again. The problem is that upon close, two separate dialogue boxes appear - one asking me if I want to save, the other asking me if I want to keep what I have copied in the clipboard.

Is there a way of answering these dialogue boxes (or suppressing them) from withint he macro, so I do not need to manually click on Yes or No each time the macro is run?

Auto Save Sheet To PDF Macro Not Working When Transferred From Win XP To 7

Jun 3, 2014

I'm fairly new to macros but somehow i managed to create all the required macros for my project through googling and the like. The problem is that i created my macro enabled excel file in XP and when i transferred it to Windows 7 the auto save to PDF macro stopped working with the Runtime Error '5' Invalid Procedure, call or Argument. The highlighted error is as follows.

ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _
Type:=xlTypePDF, _
FileName:="C:WindowsTemp emporaryexam.pdf", _
Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _

This auto save is supposed to work when a hyperlink is clicked or when the set time runs out (Working Macro).

Code To Auto-Save

May 7, 2009

Currently I have an excel form that I am working on. I just figured out how to get it to open when I open the workbook. I am wondering is there code out there that will prompt excel to auto save the worksheet that the form writes to when the "OK" button on my form is clicked. I want to be able to save the data without having to rely on the user to remember to save everytime entry is complete. if there is a code for this function, where would I place it in my code listing?

Auto Save - VBA Code

Oct 6, 2009

Is there a way to have excel automatically save the workbook every 5 minutes or so? I'm not talking about the backup option (tools-options-save) I mean do a hard save?

Or would this warrant a timed VBA code? If so, can someone build me one quickly? I'm kinda in a time crunch - sorry for last minute notice. Co-worker just deleted 8 hours of work bec "she didn't" know to save it....

Auto Save During Opening

Nov 17, 2008

I have attached a code that prompt the user for a store # then that number would automatically copy to cell A1 and at the same time it saves the file name as what is copied to A1.

This is a good code but the problem is when the file is closed and re-open, it prompts the user again for a store number and when you select 'Cancel' it replaces the store# already stored in cell A1.

What I am trying to accomplish:

1- When the file is re-opened, it should detect cell A1, if it's empty prompt user for store #, if it's not empty skip the prompt screen.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
var1 = InputBox("store#")
Range("a1") = var1
var1_filename = var1 & ".xls"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=var1_filename
End Sub

VBA - Auto Save / Update

Mar 31, 2009

i have a workbook that pulls data from 7 other workbooks based off of 3 criteria. In 6 of the 7 workbooks there are 6 sheets and in the last sheet there are 15sheet. All the sheets are used on different computers and currently the member who use these sheets cant remember to save them so the main workbook can pull the information. So I was hoping for a VB code to do the save for them after they enter any data in the range of A1:J50.

Then for the main work book i was hoping for a VB code to auto update after entering the 3 criteria. I have a marco made but it takes awhile to do it. First it saves the sheet, then pulls the information, then refreshes some pivot table, then populates into the proper cells.

Auto Save One Workbook Only

May 22, 2007

I have only one workbook in which I would like to enable auto-save. Hence, I do not need the auto-save add-in, which I've already tried. Is there some VBA code that can replicate the auto-save add-in for only one workbook? Also, I would like the default auto-save settings to save every 1 minute and NOT prompt for the save. This workbook gets completely new data every few seconds through a DDE Link, so having it save without prompting would be fine. I liked the auto-save add-in, but it reset to default settings every time the workbook was closed, I'd like to keep the same settings every time the workbook is opened.

Auto-Save Code Not Saving

Nov 14, 2006

if someone would review the code below and tell me why it does not cycle an autosave more than once. It is supposed to autosave automatically every five minutes but for some reason beyond me it does not. I did not author this but picked it up in a different forum.

Option Explicit
Public vartimer As Variant
Const TimeOut = 1 'set in minutes to whatever amount of time is desired
Sub Timer()
vartimer = Format(Now + TimeSerial(0, TimeOut, 0), "hh:mm:ss")
If vartimer = "" Then Exit Sub
Application .OnTime TimeValue(vartimer), "SaveOpenWorkbooks"
End Sub

If the file hasnt been saved (if it runs from a new workbook) then I want it to pop up the dialog, so that the user can choose the name and location of the file before the macro continues .

The macro itself is saved in personal.xlsx.

Auto Save Shared Workbook And Update Display?

Jun 7, 2013

We are currently utilizing a shared workbook (yes, I've read the inherent problems with this). This workbook needs to automatically save any changes and refresh itself every minute. We are seeking an answer to this goal, perhaps utilizing VBA code ?

We have researched the forums and attempted numerous snippets of VBA code and different settings already available in Excel (ver 2010) without success. And, we have tried using the Advanced Settings (Shared Workbook / Advanced Settings (5 mins)) .... however the display of newly added data is not updated on all viewing terminals unless we close the shared workbook on those viewing terminals and then re-open.
