Reference Cell's Value In Directory Path Name?

Apr 23, 2013

I have a worksheet (sheet1 in book1.xlsx) that references another worksheet (sheet2 in book2.xlsx) in a different file. The latter file, however, is stored in a directory that changes. Call it MYPATH for the time being. I'm trying to use a formula (not macros, which aren't allowed in this office) to reference the directory path using the dynamic name.

For example, in the first worksheet, cell A15 contains the word MYPATH. I'd like cell A1 to have a formula like this: ='C:&$A$15&subdir[book2.xlsx]sheet2'!B50

so that if I change the value of cell A15 in book.xlsx to ANEWPATH, the path reference will switch to the book2.xlsx in ANEWPATH, not MYPATH.

Dialog Box For Selecting Directory/path

Jul 27, 2007

I've seen many posts advocating the use of BrowseFolder.zip located at
[url]

And some others saying to use the FileDialog object (if you use Excel 2002, or older(?))

I have to admit both are above my prior experience level, but I think I can do it if I understand what their function, requirements, and output are.

All I need is a dialog box that preferably lets me select the default directory, and then allows the user to select the target directory.

Place Username In Directory Path

Mar 9, 2007

I've been trying to get the network username and found the solution on a previous thread. I have got to the point where I have copied the network username to my workbook. I now want to save this workbook into My Documents using that value for the username. So, so far i have:

'Get username from network

Dim User As String

CUser = Environ("username")
Cells(5000, 9) = Environ("username")
user = Application.ActiveCell

' Protect workbook and save in My Documents

ActiveSheet.Protect

ChDir "C:Documents and SettingsXXXXXXXMy Documents"

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsXXXXXXMy DocumentsSalary Review Data 2007 - " & country & ".xls" _
, FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

ActiveWorkbook.Close

The user who saves this workbook, will be doing so on their own PC's so i need the file to save to their 'My Documents' folder. So i need to replace the red X's with the user's network username (which I have extracted and dim'd as User. How do i write this into the path of the directory?

Create Directory Path From Cells

Jun 10, 2008

This should be so easy, but I know I am missing something. I know that you can only create one directory on one statement line at a time with MkDir. in the "var_dir_path" resides a part number that changes dynamically.

Private Sub CreateFolderFromCellPath2_Click()...

Conditional Directory Path From Cells

Jun 12, 2008

Customer directory inside the "masterfile drive". Part number subdirectory of the Customer Directory. 5 subdirectorys of the Part Number Directory. 2 subsubdirectories of one of the 5 subdrectories. That is reference only.

Private Sub CreateFolderFromCellPath8_Click()
Dim s1 As String, s2 As String, s3 As String, s4 As String, s5 As String, s6 As String, s7 As String, s8 As String, s9 As String, s10 As String
var_path_masterfile_cust_name = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF48").Value
var_path_part_number = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF49").Value
var_path_Correspondence = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF50").Value
var_path_Customer_Service = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF51").Value
var_path_Engineering = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF52").Value
var_path_Purchasing = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF53").Value
var_path_Quality_Assurance = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF54").Value
var_path_Sales = Worksheets("RFQ").Range("AF55").Value....................

The variables are grabbing the path directly out of cells in Excel that are concantenated strings. This works great if the customer folder (s1) is not created. I would have thought that the way that I had the If/Then setup, that it would run smoothly, but if the customer folder is already created, the Debug highlights the very first MkDir s1

Load Dialog Box In Last Directory Path Opened?

Jul 11, 2014

I have a file which is opened every so often. This file when opened it presents a userform in which you browse two files which then get loaded into the document and some charts/pivots are updated with the information from the loaded files.

When you click on the browse button it opens the browser dialog box in the libraries path. I am wondering if it's possible to have the dialog box open in the last directory path used.

For example:

A week ago I opened the file from the path C:UsersIntiDocumentsProjectsTea Project

What I would like to happen is that when I open the file today and I click the "Browse" button (which opens the dialog box to find files in your computer) for the dialog box to open automatically in the path C:UsersIntiDocumentsProjectsTea Project

Then if tomorrow the file is opened from the path C:UsersIntiPicturesProjectsTea2Project

Then a week from now when you browse for the file the dialog box opens automatically in the C:UsersIntiPicturesProjectsTea2Project path

This is what I have right now and it always opens the dialog box on C:UsersIntiDocuments

[Code] .....

Using Excel Cell As Pointer In Directory Path?

Oct 2, 2011

I have a few files all with the same name for a few different members of staff, so I save them in different paths to keep them separate.

eg

c:documentsdatajo blogsexcelfile.xls
c:documentsdatafred smithexcelfile.xls
c:documentsdatajane jonesexcelfile.xls

cells is the sheet contain the persons name

jo blogs
fred smith
jane jones

I want to be able to use this for others in the organisation and make it a simple as possible

Is there a way to use the cell contents in the path name (without opening the sheet first)

I know I can point to each cell in the other file and excel will use it but there must be a way of making this happen more automated by using the cell contents

Change To Directory Path Located In Cell

Oct 16, 2008

I am trying to use the same VBA code for different applications using variables.

Basically I want to have a variables sheet that has the different directories based on the macro selection. My variable sourceloc would change based on the variable name on the sheet.

sometimes I would want it to equal what was in a1 and sometime I would want what was in a2
a1 cell contains "f:filezilla files
a2 cell contains "f:dmc files
This is the code I started and it gives compile error when ChDir = sourceloc is reached

Public sourceloc

Sub filezillasettings()
Dim sourceloc As String
sourceloc = ActiveSheet.[a1] ' a1 cell contains the directory name and folder name =

Open All Excel Files In Directory - Code Doesn't Work For One Specific Path

Feb 8, 2014

I have my code here:

VB:
Sub openfiles()Dim Path As String
Dim ExcelFile As String
' Path = GetFolder("C:UsersKinteshDesktop")
Path = "C:UsersKinteshDesktopVBA programmingMaps"
ExcelFile = Dir(Path & "*.xls")

[Code] ....

NextCode:
GetFolder = sitem
Set fldr = Nothing
End Function

My problem is that the code all actually works (including the function and when I use the commented part), but pointing to this one specific directory (the one I'm using right now), literally nothing happens.

Get Folder Name & Path

Jan 4, 2007

I want to know how to index a drop down list to be used for calculations.

Up until now I was using

Range("B1").Select 'the cell where the drop down list is
ActiveCell.Formula = SiteID 'site id

But for whatever reason it trims a trailing zero from SiteID when setting it in the second line. SiteID is a VBA string.

Indexing it would work, as would preserving the zero so help on either one is appreciated. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Correction, I lied. I was using this line to set it.

Range("B1").Select 'the cell where the drop down list is
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = SiteID 'site id

Macro To List Folder Names Within A Directory

Nov 26, 2009

i'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.

Find Path With Only Having Folder Name

Apr 11, 2012

Is there a way to find a folders path? I have a folder Dropbox

I want to find the path up to this folder on the current computer. Is there a method to accomplish this?

I am fine if you want to give VBA code so I can put it in my immediate window for now and then I can attempt to add it to existing code later.

So an Example of the possible result would be
Directory is C:MyNameUserDropbox
Or on another computer maybe C:User1ListingFilesDropbox

Change (Browse For Folder) To Automatically Locate Sub Folder

Jul 23, 2012

I am creating a document for work that automatically generates hyperlinks to pdf files in a given sub folder. Currently I have a section of code that opens a window to choose the folder location.

Code:
'Prompt user to select a directory
Do
Problem = False
Set ShellApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application"). _
Browseforfolder(0, "Please choose a folder", 0, "c:\")

On Error Resume Next

[Code] ........

What I actually want is to not have the window open, but excel automatically choose the sub folder location.

The directory looks like this
Z:ClientProjectDRAWINGS-2 RECORD COPIESPDF

The xlsm file is stored in the DRAWINGS folder, and I need it to point to the PDF folder.

Setting Dynamic Folder Path?

Sep 6, 2013

I made an excel document for my boss with the list of the furniture in an flat that we will rent. The document will be signed by the the guest of the apartment and will be used if anything at the end of the renting period is ruined or is missing. It's kind of insurance. The problem is that next to the cell with the list of furniture I made a list of hyperlink connected to the photos of the furniture. Everything is working on my computer where the photos are in a folder that is contained in "documents" but as soon as I try it in another computer placing the folder again in the document folder it doesn't work. It says "the file is missing". I just realized that I need a dynamic path but today I have to handle the excel file and I don't know how to do it and to change the path of every link with just few clicks I have no time to change photo by photo (there are like 300 pictures).

Acessing Starting Folder Path

Oct 2, 2008

I start an Excel program from a shortcut in different folders. I know that I can find the path of the Excel program in "Parent.Path". But I don't know how to find the path of the folder the shortcut was in. It should be findable because when I try to do something like <Save>, Excel knows the correct folder there.

An example: I open Excel in "Folder 1" using a shortcut to the Excel Program in "Folder 2". Parent.Path tells me "Folder 2". How do I find out what "Folder 1" is from inside Excel?

Excel VBA Current Folder Without Complete Path

What's a proper way - in Excel VBA - to get the current folder *without* the preceding folders/path?

For example from folder "C:oracleora81sqlplusdemo" I'd like to retrieve "demo".

Currently I have:

Code:
DirNames = Split(ThisWorkbook.Path, "")
CurrentFolder = = DirNames(UBound(DirNames))

It works, but I suspect something exists specifically for this one.

VBA - Attach Multiple Files To Email Using Folder Path Loop?

Feb 7, 2014

I have two pieces of code that each work, but I am struggling to combine the two.

I started with Ron de Bruin's code to attach multiple files to an email and then found more code that will loop through a folder to attach multiple files to an email.

Essentially, I would like the structure of Ron de Bruin's code, with the ability to have folder paths in the cell range, rather than file names.

Here is the code that works to loop through a folder, but it only works when I have the paths listed in one column, not in a range (e.g. columns C-Z)

Code:
Sub Send_Indv_Files()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object

Copy Files To New Folder Path Based On Cell List

Mar 14, 2008

Essentially, the Engineering Dept has given me 550 AutoCad files I have dumped into a folder located in this path: C:/DrawingsDump

From these 550 DWG files I need to manually filter and separate 260 drawings that I actually need to use and move them to a folder located in this path: C:/DrawingsFiltered . This manual filtering process takes a lot of time and is tedious work and it has got to be done everytime Engineering changes drawings because they are not kind enough to provide me a delta list.

In Excel 2003 I have setup a list of all 260 drawings I am interested in and that I call my filtered list. Is it possible to create a script that will enable Excel 2003 to compare my filtered list to all of the files inside C:/DrawingsDump, and then copy only those files that match to my Excel Filtered list and then paste only matching files into the C:/DrawingsFiltered folder?

If Excel 2003 can't handle this, is there a third party application that will let me perform a file management function like this with minimum startup time?

Excel 2010 :: Searching A Folder For A Keyword And Returning The Full Path?

Jun 19, 2013

My Excel 2010 spreadsheet contains client data like the below:

A
B
C
D
E

What I'm trying to get from this is a personally addressed email with 2 attachments, one will be standard to all recipients and one will be unique and specific to that recipient. The filename of the unique attachment will contain the reference but will have some other stuff in the filename as well on either side that I will not be able to remove.

In terms of the file locations the unique ones will be in subfolders of the folder holding this workbook and the generic one will be in the same folder as the this workbook.This is some adapted code that solved a similar problem (in Excel 2007 though) on a different website.

VB:
Sub Mail_Report()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object [code]....

In that case the file started with the "reference" field but in my case it is in the middle and the formats vary depending on the provider, there will only be a maximum of 5 providers but I would like to avoid 5 different macros if at all possible so I need a search function of some sort.

Excel 2010 :: Using Current Month / Date And Time In A Folder Path In VBA Code

Feb 4, 2014

I’m working on a project using Microsoft Excel 2010 and I want to add some features to facilitate saving and retrieving files process.

1.How can I save the daily created workbooks (Assume 15 files a day) in order to contain the current date (and time if possible) linked with certain cell(s) I have at my workbook forming the file name? (XYZ 2-4-2014) and/or (ABC 2-4-2014 23:11) and so on …

2.I’ve been through some other posts and I found VB code which saves the active file into specific path, but it is only useful for single workbook because multiple files are getting overwritten automatically. Is there a code which allows multiple/different files saving & creates daily folders?
