Automatically Save Copy As Text File When Data Changes
Sep 5, 2006
I'm trying to create a sub that will save my worksheet to a tab delimited text file anytime there is a change in the worsheet data (all cells are linked to cells in other workbooks). I've figured out the command to save the file
Sample File name : 2013-07-22_UOB000000_TransAuto_Inv778899_PV_$$$$$$$
I tried to add this code : FName = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Payment Voucher").Range =("V5&"_"&E17&"_"&D11&"-"&O9&"_"&"PV"&"_"&W16")
But getting error.
Than i tried to group all the cell data into cell (E11) and than select as range (E11), but when i tried to group it, the beginning the file name instead of i want it to be the date 2013-07-22_UOB........ it become 41113_UOB............
I have a spreadsheet that I drop data into and it updates a set range on the sheet. I than have to copy that range in to notepad and save it under the name "Hourly Team Stats - 2-2-14" on our companies shared drive. If the file is already there, I have to add the data to that file rather than create a new one.
I am looking for macro that check to see if the file has already been created, if not create a new one. If it does exist, add the range to the file. If you need the path its F:Team Stats.
I presently have a macro that, when run, takes to conents of C4 and C6 and saves a new version of the file being worked on into a folder on my desktop. I love the macro with the exception of one part: I don't want to be prompted to overwrite the file if it already exists. How can I change this macro so that, when pressed, it overwrites the file without prompting the user and waiting for their answer?
I am trying to fix is that I have two computers networked together both with multiple users all with access to the report form that I am using which is in the shared file. If I have been working on it (I am still trying to do improvements when I have time), and I have to leave for a fire or forget to close the report, no one can access it other than with read-only.
My idea was to run some type of code that either when the screen saver comes on or after so much time with no activity, it would close and save the file with a new file name(just in case I don't want the changes that I have made in the code or something).
I would like excel to automatically suggest the save as file name and location for my workbook when I click the save, save as or close options. The file name should be a combination of values in cells A1 and A2 of Sheet1. The location should be a folder named "Bill" in C:/My Documents. I think I can do it with a beforesave code but I am new to vba.
How to save a file, with file- name. but the directory is to be read in worksheet "towns" in Cell1 (brussels) and filename in worksheet "names" in cell B2 (i.e. winter), so it saves to c:russelswinter.txt as a wordpad or kladblok txt file, that keeps a number, so each time we push a button "go back from worksheet names to worksheet towns" the "number" that is saved in the txt document goes up by value +1. In Flemisch, the "old" code goes as follows, and saves the number in the txt file Factuurnummer7.txt. But I want that the file name (here: FactuurNummer7) can be a variable text issue, which has to be read - as already noticed - in cell B2 (with the word WINTER). So the are 2 worksheets: towns, ans names
pad$ = Application.DefaultFilePath 'controle = Dir(pad$ + "FactuurNummer7.txt") 'If controle = "" Then GoTo EerstAanmaken 'Open pad$ + "Factuurnummer7.txt" For Input As #10 'Input #10, Nummer1 'Close #10......................
I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:
1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row) 2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders 3) Put the folder name into I2 4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this) 5) Close the text file 6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)
I want to copy a bunch of data from a text file and paste in into an excel worksheet I have open. I want to paste it at the end but I don't know how large the data range will be each time so I can't select that size range. I have this code so far:
FileToOpen = Application. GetOpenFilename("Text Files (*.txt), *.txt") If FileToOpen <> False Then Workbooks.Open FileToOpen Else Exit Sub End If
Range("A1").Select 'THIS IS THE OLD CODE FOR THE FIRST IMPORT ActiveSheet.Paste 'I NEED TO REPLACE THIS WITH THE CODE FOR APPENDING 'OR PASTING AT THE END OF MY RANGE
- I have excel file with data I need - I have fixed txt(html) template that i need to integrate Excel information into - Final result that I want to achieve is saved .txt(html) file with combination of fixed information (text) and data from excel cells.
I need to writing a VBA code for each of above (integrating text & cells, saving results as text)
I have an excel file that I use to track all my financial investments. The file is already set up with a query to retrieve stock prices when I refresh the document.
I would like to be able to open up the document, and store the closing price of the stock(s) with a date in the next column over. With this information I can graph weekly, monthly annually, or any time period I want.
I have been searching for a couple of hours now, and I could not find anything similar to this. I would think this is a pretty common idea for many people tracking their investments with Excel, so if it has been covered perhaps someone can point me in the right direction.
I don't have any programming experience in excel so as detailed of an explanation as possible
I have a bill of materials for each job I do, I have multiple cut sheets in one spot on the network that must be individually copied and pasted into the project file for each job. I’m hoping to automate the process. Post extraction dump from AutoCAD, my text file goes into a excel file that the information is used by multiple tabs including a bill of materials.
From the bill of materials, I want to say “if C3>0 get file 10P0044HP2.DOC” . . . I want it to get the file and save to the individual project file. .. Possible I’m not so sure. But I’m not sure of where to start.
Could any Excel wiz out there tell me whether the following is possible, and if so what would be the VB code to do it?
I would like a macro that will save the contents of cell A2 in a text file, with file name from cell A1, then move the cursor down to the next row, and repeat the process until reaching the last row of data.
The end result would be a stack of text files, each containing the data from a single cell in the spreadsheet.
e.g. 001.txt (containing the contents of cell A2) 002.txt (containing the contents of cell B2) 003.txt (containing the contents of cell C2) ...etc.
This is for a multi lingual dictionary so the text files would have to be unicode as well.
I am copying a sheet out to a new workbook in order to save as a CSV file. I was wondering if there was a better way of doing this than the code below which uses ActiveWorkbook to determine the newly copied sheet.
Sub test() Dim OutputFile As Workbook, InputFile As Workbook Dim sDD As Worksheet Set InputFile = Workbooks.Open("H:TestTestInput.xls") Set sDD = InputFile.Worksheets("Data Dump") sDD.Copy Set OutputFile = ActiveWorkbook OutputFile.SaveAs Filename:="H:TestTestOutput.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSV End Sub..................
Let's say I have a database called testTemplate.mdb in c: which is a template-like database where i import data to. Is there a way for me to copy the testtemplate.mdb and past it to my desktop with file name test.mdb. I don't want to copy any data from the database, just the table's + queries. I would like this to be done via a macro... In order for me to execute other macro's to copy data from excel to that test.mdb file on desktop.
I have this macro I recorded and pieced together from info I found on the net. It works the first time you run it but then it dies because the next new workbook is not "book1" what I would prefer is to have it save the new workbook as the value of sheet2 F2 and "Product Bulletin" so it would look like "##### Product Bulletin" but I don't know how to write it.
I have a file that opens a number of files from a source directory (which is identified by the User at run-time) & merges the source data into various worksheets (which all works fine)
Now what I'd like to be able to do is to be able to (silently) save multiple worksheets back to separate files in the original directory based on each worksheet name - e.g:
"Sheet1" and "Control" Sheet" are saved to SourceDirectorySheet1.xlsm "Sheet2" and "Control" Sheet" are saved to SourceDirectorySheet2.xlsm "Sheet3" and "Control" Sheet" are saved to SourceDirectorySheet3.xlsm ... "Sheetn" and "Control" Sheet" are saved to SourceDirectorySheetn.xlsm
(Note that "Control Sheet" also contains Command Buttons & VBA which I'd like to preserve)
I have a report which I have written a macro to reformat, I then want to copy the sheet (Remake) containing the report into a new workbook as the only sheet in the new workbook. I want the sheet name to be changed from "Remake" to "Duty to Consider" and I want the new workbook to save itself automatically as "Duty to Consider - Month/Year" - in this case it would be "Duty to Consider - August 2008".
I think that a Pop Up box which lets me input the Month and Year of the report I am working on would be useful in naming the new workbook, if this box popped up when I click the button which runs my Macro that'd be great. Here is the code I am using to reformat my report. This works fine I just need the changes I mentioned. Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'this will turn on screen updating, making the macro run faster
'This will select the DTC Tab and remove rows 1-4 Sheets("DTC").Select Rows("1:4").Select Range("A4").Activate Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
'This will add a filter to the data to remove duplicate rows Range("A1").Select Range("A1:J1307").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, Unique:=True
'This will copy the data on the DTC tab and copy it into the Remake Tab Cells.Select.....................
I have a folder that has a bunch of text files in it with numeric names (they are store numbers 2, 3, 165, 188, etc...). I need to open those files (in excel), run a macro on them (this portion of the macro has already been created), and then save them with the same name as the txt file but in an xls format and close. It would be great to have the whole folder process automatically but I am willing to start small. Further, I'd like it to not ask for a filename, and I don't want to see the SaveAs dialog box. So far I have been able to get the macro to run through the my processing of the text file all the way to the SaveAs portion, but the code in my macro opens the SaveAs box and puts the filename of the txt file in the file name box in quotes with the txt extension. Below is the code.
find attached an example of the spreadsheet I am working with. Please bear in mind that this is a much simplified version of the version I am currently working on (which needs to have 1000 lines). What I am trying to achieve is allow my team to enter rows of data into the spreadsheet in a format that they will be familiar with - then hit the button on the sheet which will then take a copy of the second sheet (which looks up against the first) and spit it out in a .txt file ready to be uploaded into our computer system.
The main priority that I need to fix is that when the .txt file is opened in notepad it contains a huge amount of blank data rows at the bottom - I assume that it is taking accross all 65536 lines into the .txt where I only want the rows that have data in them in the .txt. At present our computer system will not accept the .txt due to all the blank rows (its limit is 1000 lines).
