Browse For Folder / Index Files And Subfolders?

May 12, 2014

I found some code that works well to index a folder and all sub-folders for file names.

The issue is that the folder used is coded in an excel spreadsheet (cell C7) in the below code and whether to look in sub-folders (cell C8 - True or False).

Code:
Sub ListFiles()
iRow = 11
Call ListMyFiles(Range("C7"), Range("C8"))

[Code]....

I have tried to incorporate the browse for folder and select if sub-folders are used, but it isn't working.

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

The directory looks like this

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

VB Shell Command To Browse Files

Oct 15, 2008

I'm in the process of building a user form that required the user to brows for a file, the path of the file that they select is then displayed in the textbox next to the "browse" button in my form. I also have another button next to this which when selected will open the file that is displayed in the textbox previously mentioned.

Iíve been trying the shell command but with no success, I can get the user form to open adobe reader but whenever I try to include that file path for which to open the file I keep getting runtime errors,

Below are a couple of examples that Iíve tried (you'll prob be able to guess from the code that Iím very new to VB in excel).

For additional info the value in the textbox would be something like, "H:My DocumentsPDF Filesmyfile.pdf"

Dim GetFile As String
Shell "C:Program FilesAdobeReader 8.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe", vbNormalFocus
'this opens adobe reader but I'm trying to open a specific file

Shell "C:Program FilesAdobeReader 8.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe" & textbox9.value, vbNormalFocus
This produces the runtime error again

Dim GetFile As String
GetFile = TextBox9.Value
Shell "C:Program FilesAdobeReader 8.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe" & GetFile, vbNormalFocus
'this produced a runtime error - to be honest this was an attempt born out of frustration.

Excel 2003 :: Extract Variable Rows Of Cells From Files In A Folder To Existing File In Folder

Mar 15, 2013

I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.

At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.

At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).

I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).

The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files

Jul 5, 2007

I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.

1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.

2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it

3. Open the file in the associated application

4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file

5. Repeat steps 2-4

DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Close #1

Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
wend
Close #2

I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems

I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.

with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.

I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.

Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only

Feb 8, 2009

I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.

I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?

Convert All CSV Files In A Folder To Excel Files?

Apr 8, 2014

I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.

One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french

can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:

NO = B
BA = W
RG = R
SO = P
JA = Y
BE = L
VE = GY
GR = G
VI = V
MA = BR
BJ = TA
OR = O

Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.

Automatic Index For Jpg Folder

Mar 28, 2007

I`m trying to create a macro that produces an index of jpgs contained in a folder.
I need also some properties of the file. With these I will create a new naming system and rename existing files. To do part of this I copied from here a macro and adapted it. Copied: i.e. I don`t know much!!!

Problem 1)
Initially it worked, then "Run-time error 53, file not found" started appearing without me being aware of making any changes to the code.

Problem 2)
I would like to capture some of the properties of the files (pics from digital camera). Which jpgs properties can I access to and how?
What about exif data?
Explorer shows 3000x2000 pixels. Can I get this too?

Sub Get_Folder_Contents()
Dim folderstring As String
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
folderstring = ThisWorkbook.Path
f = Dir(CStr(folderstring & "*.jpg"))
n = 2
Do While Len(f) > 0
Cells(n, 1) = folderstring
Cells(n, 2) = f
Dim fs, fl
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")................

Search Folder For Files Containing "Temp", Delete Files

Jun 26, 2008

Is there a code that will search a pre-determined folder for all .xls files containing the word "Temp", and deleting those files?

Example:
In the root of drive M, I have several Excel files. Anytime one of the original tracking logs is opened, a temp file of that log is automatically created. I would like to automatically search the drive and delete all files containin the word "Temp".

I've attached a picture of the directory tree, in case that will help. The file will always be named "PO Response Tracking - Temp#######.xls", with ###### representing a series of either 5 or 6 numbers.
