Calling Close Event When Multiple Documents Closed

Jun 18, 2008

I'm trying to create a macro that will save backup copies of documents that have changed when a user closes them. I created an add-in and put a Workbook_BeforeClose sub in "ThisWorkbook" that saves a copy of the document in a temp location on the hard drive.

If I have three Excel documents opened and each one has changes and I close Excel (with the "big red X") it only seems to call the Workbook_BeforeClose once backing up one of the files. If I use the "Close Window" (the "little X") it doesn't call that event at all.

Is there a better event to use or a better way to backup these files when closing them or Excel?

VBA Macro (once Copied The Cell Value The Documents Then Close)

Oct 6, 2008

I have a large macro where it looks into 50 documents and pulls out a value from a specific cell.

I dont have any problem with the coding for this but was wondering if it is possible to add another line of coding so that once it has copied the cell value the documents then close.

Currently when I run the macro, it leaves all 50 documents open once it has taken all the cell values and pasted them into my "Master Document".

Raise Event From One Of Custom Classes Instead Of Calling Sub?

May 2, 2014

I can create events in my custom classes. When do I even want to raise an event like this instead of calling the corresponding Sub?

I imagine that I can create an event called OnColorChange or I can create a sub called OnColorChange.

Why would I want to create an event?

Splash Screen Closed With Timer Event

Feb 3, 2010

I have a workbook with several user forms. When the workbook opens I'd like to show frmSplashScreen for 3 seconds then close and have another form frmMain show. I've tried the following code and it opens frmSplashScreen ok but it does not automatically close the form. If I click the close box then in 3 seconds frmMain will show.

Before Close Event Doesn't Run

Jul 19, 2014

I am trying to make Excel update a cell (C27) in my workbook's front page before closing, but it doesn't run at all.

Debug doesn't show any error...

Actually I am not sure if it's a code error or just the place i put this sub in.

MsgBox "All Sheets have been updated"
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Worksheets("Front Page").Activate
If .Offset(27, 3).Value < DateValue(Date) Then
.Offset(27, 3).Value = DateValue(Date)
End Sub

Workbook Before Close Event

Jul 22, 2008

I have a sheet that on open looks at the username and determines which tabs can be seen by that user. If macro's are not enabled, I want the sheet to just display sheet 4.

here is the code I have on open that works fine: -

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
If Environ("username") = "Bob" Then
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = True
Sheets("Sheet2").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet3").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet4").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet2").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet3").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet4").Visible = True
End If
End Sub

I have a Workbook_BeforeClose() function that does not, and I am stuck as to why!

Here it is: -

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose()
If Environ("username") = "Bob" Then
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet2").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet3").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet4").Visible = True
Sheets("Sheet1").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet2").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet3").Visible = False
Sheets("Sheet4").Visible = True
End If
End Sub

So basically after "Bob" is done it will save the sheet with only tab 4 visable. This means that if someone without Macros enabled opens the sheet they can only view tab 4 (I know it isn't password protected in this example, but it will be)

Before Close Event Error

Oct 28, 2006

I'm using the following code in "ThisWorkbook" of a couple of different workbooks, and the problem occurs consistently with the code use regardless of which workbook...

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
ActiveWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

The code itself does exactly as it should (not save changes when closing), but shortly after the workbook has closed, any other open workbooks will freeze, then give a popup message saying an error has occurred and a log is being generated, and EXCEL shuts down (loosing any other work)...

I have searched my HDD and only found 4 .log files that reference dates that coincide with the errors, although the times don't match(?)...

0:00:00 i: G2EnumPortsCore() -- leave --

I had been using;

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
ActiveWorkbook.Save True
End Sub

Which had the same error... when I changed it to Close, I thought it had been fixed, but it was just that the delay is longer before the freeze.

Save As In Before Close Event

Jan 16, 2007

I need to use the BeforeClose event to save the workbook with the same name when a user closes it. (82 users and they all seem to want to give it their own name.) I have the following code in the BeforeClose event but would like to eliminate the prompt "this file already exists, do you want to replace it" I have tried using the Application.DisplayAlerts = False but this seems to stop the workbook from saving.
I have a public demention called wbName and is set to the workbook name in an outo open macro

Public wbName
Public Sub auto_open()
wbName = ActiveWorkbook.Name

MsgBox "PLEASE do Not insert rows/columns or enter calculations" _
& Chr(10) & " " _
& Chr(10) & "Enter Only Account Name, Date, and Corresponding_ Calls/Details", vbCritical, "Caution"
End Sub

Suppress Save Dialog On Before Close Event

Jan 5, 2014

I have a command button code on a sheet that checks if all the cells in a table have been completed before saving the worksheet. If they're not all complete a userform message box pops up with a reminder then returns to the sheet without saving. I want to be able to call this from the 'BeforeClose' event as well however, even though it still does what it's supposed to do, after the userform message box has displayed and been unloaded then it still pops up the Save Dialog box.

I'm struggling to suppress the Save Dialog box and return to the sheet.

Workbook Won't Close Correctly And Keeps Re-opening On The Refresh Event

Jun 6, 2006

I'm trying to combine 2 sets of code that I have searched other threads for.Both use the OnTime code to trigger events after 5 and 10sec.
My problem is that the workbook won't close correctly and keeps re-opening on the refresh event. I understand both events need to be passed to the dTime variable, but I am obviously doing something wrong. I will include the code as I'm sure its something obvious;

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
On Error Resume Next
Application.OnTime dTime, "Sort", , False
If Cancel = False Then Application.OnTime dTime, "RefreshIt", , False
On Error Goto 0
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Run "RefreshIt"
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:10:00"), "Sort"
End Sub

Public dTime As Date
Sub Sort()
dTime = Time + TimeValue("00:00:10")
Application.OnTime dTime, "Sort"
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("I6"), Order1:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
End Sub

Sub RefreshIt()
dTime = Time + TimeValue("00:00:05")
Application.OnTime dTime, "RefreshIt"
End Sub

Any help would be appreciated!

Importing Data From Multiple Documents Into Single File

I have thousands of Excel files, each with a generic names (i.e. 2009092812163503.xls)

Each of them contain a header with contains column titles like Company Name, Executive Contact, Address, etc and then a single row of data for a single company.

I want to be able to task excel to extract all the data in the second line and enter them all into a single spreadsheet for further work.

We're talking 30,000+ unique files here, what would be the best way to approach this?

SUMPRODUCT With Multiple Criteria: Count The Number Of Documents

Nov 3, 2009

I have attached a spreadsheet with a small indicative data set to assist in understanding. I am trying to count the number of documents each individual has assigned to them that are not yet 'completed' (ie REGISTERED, IN WORK, REVIEWED). The problem I am trying to overcome is that the document state can be 1 of several values indicated in the same column.

I have tried using this SUMPRODUCT formula:
=SUMPRODUCT((($E$2:$E$11="REGISTERED")+($E$2:$E$11="IN WORK")+($E$2:$E$11="REVIEWED")*($B$2:$B$11="Jones")))
but it is generating incorrect values!

- Jones shoulld return 1
- Franks should return 3
- Smith shoudl return 0

BeforeClose Event Not Running / Working When File Is Closed Through VBA In Another File

Jun 26, 2014

I have a code in file A that opens several files (B,C,D&E), copies some data from them, then closes the files. That part of the code works fine, but each of the files that are opened (B,C,D,&E) have a Workbook Open event that causes the file to save automatically every 30 seconds. (I know this is not recommended, but this is what the user wants.) The files also have a Workbook Before Close event that is supposed to stop the timer so the file will close without reopening. These each run fine on their own.But if I run code A, the workbook Before Close event in file B (C,D, & E) does not seem to run and the files reopen after 30 seconds to save. When I step through the code it works fine and goes through the Before Close event in each file and the files remain closed.

Calling Multiple Columns / Rows From Dropdown List

Feb 4, 2013

I have a drop down list, using data validation, calling from a range name on a different sheet($1). Works great. I see my list of choices.

What I want to do next is for another named range on another sheet($2) to be called when I select one of the options from the drop down.

So say the drop down is in I71, when I pick an option from that list it will populate (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) from a named range I have already defined on ($2).

Where would I put the (if I71=Range1, then paste this info into the (B72, B73:G73, B74:G74...etc...) on $1 ?

I got a problem that I cannot seem to solve, I want to retrieve values from 2 closed workbooks, I have with the help of this forum managed to create some VBA that retrieves the values from one of the workbook. What do I need to think of,to be able to put in the values from the second spreadsheet without the values disapearing from the "master" spreadsheet?

The code so far:

Sub ValuesfromClosedWorkbook()
Dim filetoopen As String
Dim wb As Workbook

filetoopen = Application _
. GetOpenFilename("XL Files (*.xls), *.xls")
On Error Resume Next
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filetoopen, True, True)
With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
. Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value
End With
wb.Close False
Set wb = Nothing

I am currently using the COUNTIFS formula to get the information I need when the workbook is open but I would like to be able to pull these counts without opening the workbook. Here is the formula that is working correctly while the workbook is open:

=COUNTIFS([TT_Output_All.xlsx]Sheet1!$C:$C,D$1,[TT_Output_All.xlsx]Sheet1!$F:$F, "2014",[TT_Output_All.xlsx]Sheet1!$I:$I,$A17,[TT_Output_All.xlsx]Sheet1!$L:$L, "production: am owner")

Convert this formula to an array that doesn't require me to open the workbook to get the counts.

Update Multiple Worksheets From Closed Workbook

Dec 9, 2007

On Event open workbook (wookbook A)

For worksheets 3 though to worksheet 9 and only columns D, E, F, G, H , I and J, and only rows 4 through to 35 auto update from a source workbook

Note 1: - as you will see in Wookbook A in the attached demo test zip file that row range 4 to 35 varies on each worksheet as the number of towns columns varies on each worksheet. So on one worksheet it might be row 4 to row 12 requiring update whereas on another worksheet it could be row 4 to up to row 35.

Note2: –the source workbook is a closed /non active workbook on another server in my network –path is X/sourcefiles/weeklydate/countfile.xls. In the source workbook the source is sheet 1.

Only update when there is a match of string of the place location name which are ALL listed in column C of the source worksheet –matched to that of string place location names in workbook A in their respective worksheets 3 through to worksheet 9. Then when there is a match – copy the content of the cells that correspond to the place location names in the source workbook (countfile.xls) from the columns D, E, F, G, H, I, and J.

Note 3. The way in which the source countfile works is that each week it will be updated with values/figures starting with column D in week 1 and column E in week 2 and column F in the third week and so on…..In the first week only column D will have values/ figures and the other columns will be empty – and second week only columns D and E will have values/figures – to make the code easy it would be OK to copy across the other columns when they are empty – thus leaving the other columns in workbookA also empty. So in week two when workbook A is opened and is updated from the source file with values/figures for workbook A’s columns D and E of worksheets 3 through to 9 the other columns F, G H, I and J on those worksheets would have only be empty cells or just not updated at all –as the source file at that time would have had only two weeks of figures entered.

Also copy across the column headings in row 4 for columns D, E, F, G, H, I , and J as those headings may change as they are dates.

The final bit that is important part of this is that as worksheet A is updated the formula in column K it will need to auto update as well as it is the initial figures in column D minus the figures in the most recent column updated – so if column G is updated today the formula needs to be =D5 – G5 and =D6-G6 and so on whereas when updated next week the formula would need to change to =D5 – H5 and =C6-H6 and so on.

Locating Data From Closed Worksheets In Multiple Directories

Jan 28, 2010

I would like to create a macro which finds data from multiple worksheets and collates them in my Master Worksheet.

I am competent with a lot of functions with Excel, however I have never used Macro's before. I have a little bit of VB knowledge, but only the very basics. I will attempt to explain my situation as clearly as I can.

Please note in your response that I am not familiar with a lot of the programming jargon. I also do not know how to actually create (or is it record?) a macro.

Finally, before I dive into it, I would *prefer* not to have to add code to the closed worksheets, but I can do this if there is no other way!.......

Extract Single One Cell Value From Multiple Closed Workbooks

Mar 23, 2012

I have a little over 100 workbooks which I will receive back from customers and in column A of another workbook I have the names of those workbooks.

Not all workbooks will come in at the same time, but I would like, as we receive the workbooks, retrieve the value from cell H19 from the available workbooks according to the name in column A and place the value in column B.

I've looked into Indirect, but with this function the workbooks have to be open. If one of the workbooks has not been received, I would like for the macro to skip this file name. All files are .xlsm.

The file will be in the same folder as all the individual workbooks.
