I've created a MsgBox that if you do not respond or Click on it within a set time it will either disappear or perform an action upon no selection. It works great....IF itís the only excel workbook open. If there is a second workbook open (Even if the second WB is minimized) then the MsgBox just stays up and the "Timer" no longer works. My Code is as Follows:
Dim Box As Object
Dim varResponse As Variant
Dim Res As Long
Set Box = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
varResponse = Box.Popup(Text:="Which button will you click?", secondstowait:=5, Title:="Click Me!", Type:=vbYesNoCancel)
If varResponse = vbYes Then
MsgBox "You clicked Yes"
ElseIf varResponse = vbNo Then
MsgBox "You clicked No"
ElseIf varResponse = vbCancel Then
MsgBox "You clicked Cancel"
ElseIf varResponse = -1 Then
Res = Box.Popup(Text:="What? Do you not like me?", secondstowait:=5, Title:="You Didn't click Me!", Type:=vbOK)
I have a range that refer to an external data. This external data is refreshed every one minute. So the data is changing every one minute. I need to copy the content of one fix cell in that range into another cell every one minute, each time copy to a different cell. Example: cell A1 has the content that refer to an external data. Cell A1 is updated every one minute. At first A1= 100, I need it to be copied to cell B1 (so B1=100); one minute later, A1=101, I need it to be copied to B2 (so B2=101) and so on.
There is only one task left I need to automate. On closing the document I would like a copy to be saved in a specific folder and be given the file name of a cell (B9). Obviously I would not want the 'saved copy' to retain the Incrementing invoice number or the clear cells function. Even if the invoice copy was exported as a flat jpeg that would be fine. I am using Office Exce 2003 (Sp2) - I have attached my invoice should anyone be kind enough to take a look.
I am very new to vba and trying to figure out an auto save macro that will automatically save my workbook when a certian cell range is changed. Right now I have a macro set that automactially record the time and date of when a change is made to the name cell, I want to set up a macro that will automatically save the file when the time is updated.
This program is used by several users and they have a tendnecy to forget to save the program so that when other people want to check the updated data nothing has changed because the changes have not been saved. I have attached the file that I am working on. When a change is made in column F then Column G automatically updates, now I want column G to trigger autosave. I would also like a msgbox to appear to tell user that file has been saved.
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?
At work we use a spreedsheet to control our holidays. The problem we are having is the file is stored on a network and some people are opening the file and not closeing it once done with, this is locking out others from using it.
Is there any VBA code that will close the file, if not used in say 5 mins
I am trying to run a macro every 15 minutes after opening it. I did read something on here that helped me "http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/run-macro-on-time.htm", but it only seemed to refresh at 15 minutes past the hour. Not at 00:30, 00:45, or 00:00.
I have an expense report, which was originally done in Excel 2003. It still prompts users to open as read only however if they select no, they are not prompted for the password, and it has allowed them to save, so when the next person opens it, they have the previous person's report instead of the clean workbook. I have tried everything to put a password onto it. I know this is really basic stuff, but maybe I am missing a step? I want the end user to be able to make all the changes they want in read only mode and then do a save as, but if the select No when prompted "Open as Read-only?" they should have to put a password in.
I have an excel file stored on a network drive for the purpose of information sharing. (File protected with a password)
But some the guys leave the file open for quiet long time and hence I cannot open the file for updating the data.
-I need to have a macro that runs every 5 minutes and displays an alert message saying "Please close the File" as long as the file is kept open.
-A second macro with a modified version of the above to close the file automatically after 5 minutes from file opening time after showing an alert message "You cannot leave the File Open, File is Closed Automatically!"
I have figured out how to save the workbook using a variable to saveas but I would like to create a new folder to place the new workbook into. I have tried a few things a am not having any luck. I recorded a macro and the code it produced is as follows.
I have a spread sheet with a colum showing average time to complete a task. This is currently shown as Days:Hours:Minutes:Seconds (4:19:33:19). I meed it to be shown purely as minutes, or at least as hours and minutes.
I have a formula which will calculate the number of hours and minutes between two military times. I would like it to calculate the total number of minutes instead of hours and minutes. I have uploaded a small example of what i have so far.
I'm trying to find a way to save a single sheet of an excel workbook and in the same process delete all vba code and shapes from the new single sheet workbook. I was looking around and found this code which does save only the single sheet to a new one sheet workbook but doesn't delete the vba and shape that I have used to assign macros to in the original.
Code: Sub SaveSheetAsNewBook() Dim wb As Workbook Dim InitFileName As String Dim fileSaveName As String Dim wshape As Shape InitFileName = ThisWorkbook.Path & Format(Date, "mm.dd.yy")
I'm trying to convert 3786 minutes to day:hours:minutes. So divided it by 1440 which is 2.63... but I want this displayed in the worksheet as 2 days 1 hour and 3 minutes (02:01:03), I just can't seem to get it to work and it seems quite simple... but I'm missing something.... I was trying a custom format like dd:hh:mm or [d]:hh:mm and I was also trying a convert function and =day/1440+hour +minute
creating a formula for converting time data that has been created in an excel spreadsheet in minutes i.e. 516 minutes which I need to turn into Hours and Minutes i.e. 08:36 I am not experienced using Formulas, apologies if this question has been posted before, I did use the search facility to look for threads, but could not find anything related
Is it possible to have the worksheet save itself automatically every 5 minutes or so? I don't want the user to have to click on a macro or do anything. Basically they will not even know that it is saving.
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 have a workbook with 4 worksheets the first is called "input" which I use to enter information which goes to the other worksheets which arecalled engine, gearbox, doors.
I am stuck on the following; after inputting the information. I want to save as pdfs in various locations.
Is it possible to have 4 buttons on the input sheet which automatically :
Button 1 - Save "engine" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 2 - Save "gearbox" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 1 - Save "doors" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 1 - Save the sheets as multiple excel files to a specified folder
Our company has designed a Excel Document for quoting purposes. The problem we are having is that certain sheets that are needed to do the quote do not need to be used after the quote is finished and saved. These extra worksheets are taking up a lot of room on our server. In the document I have already disabled the save feature so that the saveas has to be used. Is there code that can delete sheets 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 upon doing a save as?
