Check Which User Has File/Workbook Open

Jul 28, 2004

I have a program that opens an excel-workbook, I first check whether the file is opened by another user(open for read-write). This works fine, but I'd like to know which user has the file open with VBa code. ex.

workbooks.open ....
if open
then msgbox " Book opened by user"
end if

So it's the same as you open an excel(with your windows explorer) on a network and you get the message that the file is already opened by the user....

Check If Workbook Is The Only Excel File Open

Jul 17, 2009

I am just wondering if there is a way of checking if the workbook that is currently open is the only one that is open, as I have been asked to make my code exit the application if this is the case rather that just close that one file.

I am making a macro that requires that user to enter a directory path into a input box and the macro will open the file. Right now it works fine bit i would like to change the code so that instead of using an input box it brings up a box that will allow them to browse files on their computer and then select one to open.

Check To See If File Is Open, And If It Is Open, Activate It

May 14, 2009

I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".

When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:

MacRO: Check If WorkBook Open. If Not, Open It.

Sep 27, 2006

I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code Im using for tranfering the sheet

Sub Transfer_Sluttet()
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2")
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it

If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................

User Select File To Open

Oct 17, 2011

I am writing code that requires data from another workbook. Instead of hardcoding the directory and filename (which changes daily), how can I have the code prompt the user to do this for me?

I want to open the file with:

links updated
read-only

Also, is there a way to have an initial directory that appears so the user need not go through a dozen directories every time to get to the file?

Prompting User To Open File?

Oct 18, 2011

I have code that prompts the user to open a specific excel file. However, with the following:

Filepath = "..."
name = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Files *.xls* (*.xls*),",)
Workbooks.Open name

the default directory you start out in in the window that prompts the user to select a file is NOT ...

How can I properly assign which directory the user starts in so they need not go through 10 sub-directories everytime they run this code?

Allow User To Choose File To Open

Oct 19, 2006

We have several salespeople who maintain a workbook tracking their workflow. I want to compile the customer account number, account name and deal number for each rep to another workbook. A new sourcebook is started each week. This code is in the target book

'Option Explicit

Public sourcebook As Object 'the workflow workbook

Sub GETDATA()

Dim wsc As Double 'the number of pages in the workflow

Dim col As Long 'the column in this workbook for returning values

Dim IntEndRow As Double 'the end row in this book

Dim SrcEndRow As Double 'the end row in workflow

Dim findval 'the column workflow where the sourcedata is found

My code allows the user to select a workbook and then loops through each sheet in that book searching for the column which has the info I need, this changes on each sheet as the reps each deal with different types of customer as so take different details. I solved this by having column headers in the target book and searching for them in the sourcebook.

This code works when I step through it but falls over at the "Set sourcebook" line when I run it where it returns a breakpoint error.

Macro: Check If File Open

Dec 19, 2006

I have a form in Access with a button that opens an Excel file. I think I've seen vba code to tell if a specific Excel file is open already. What I'm looking for is a way to tell if an Excel file is already open when you don't know the filename of the Excel file. Is that possible? Or at the very least is there a way to be able to tell if Excel is already open?

Check If Workbook Already Open

Aug 19, 2006

I have to files and a macro which copies data from one file to the other. The code goes as follows:

Sub test()

Range("A2").Activate

ActiveCell.Copy

ChDir "D:"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="D: est2.xls"

Range("B1").Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub

Everything is ok as long as the second file (test2) - the one data is copied to, is closed the moment the macro starts acting. The problem is: when test2.xls was opened before the macro was activated a window pops up saying that all unsaved data in test2.xls would be lost.

The best thing to do is to write a piece of code stating that : if the target file is closed then the macro should open it and do its stuff, but if the target file is already opened than the macro should simply switch to the already opened workbook without trying to reopen it. All I need is a piece of code regulating that

Check .xla Workbook Is Open

Sep 23, 2006

Y have files that are stored as .xla files because they are standalone applications that just contain the code.

Y need to test if one .xla file is open and if so close it, so i'am able to open another one. Otherwise the APP withevents from both APP get all mixed up.

I'am actually doing it from vb.net 2005 and i 'am using latebinding.
But the code would be similar y guess.

Check If Workbook Is Open

Jan 3, 2007

I have a small group of excel files that I've tried to code to update a master file. I have borrowed code snippets and adapted the rest (still trying to learn). My appologies to those I borrowed from! I would give you full credit if I could remember who did what. Anyway, The files are on a network share folder and everything works perfectly for me, but when one of the people who this was disigned for tries to update it always says "File already open, please try again later." This message is built in to the code.

All the files are in the same shared folder (to make it easier for me) along with the master file.

Here is the code:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Const strMaster As String = "PMT_Master.xls"
Dim wbMaster As Workbook
Dim srcrng As Range
Dim destrng As Range

Check Workbook Open From Another Pc

Jul 8, 2007

how to check if a workbook is open or not, and then do something on the resualt. What I would like to know is, how can I make the program check if the file is open on another on the server where others can access it? I'm reading this back, not sure im explaining it right... If i have a macro that checks if a file is open, is it checking if its open on just my PC, or is it checking if its open else where?

This is the function Roy did for me: [code].........

Check Who Has Workbook Open

Jan 24, 2008

I have some code setup to create hyperlinks to all the excel files relevant to the current project a user is working on - it details when each file was last modified so it's possible to see how the project is progressing - and whether or not they need to review any changes.

I could do with including a flag detailing if someone else currently has the file open (prior to them attempting to open the file - as they're more than likely to open as read only and end up saving under a new filename - which I don't want happening) - as many of the projects are shared (one user might be in Edinburgh, the other in London for Example). It would be handy to display the user's excel User Name (as I've persuaded everyone to update this). I've added messageboxes identifying Last modified by user x , dd/mm/yyyy hr:min to auto_open's in the past, but am experiencing brain-freeze today

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim vFileName As String
Dim sLastSaveTime As String
Dim sLastAuthor As String
vFileName = ThisWorkbook.Name
Application.Volatile
sLastSaveTime = _
ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time")
Application.Volatile
sLastAuthor = _
ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Author")................

Check File Open With Random Path

Oct 27, 2008

I have an application that requires users to download a file from a location that is then imported at their execution into the application. I've done my best to counsel users to download the file to their desktop (for ease of locating) and to stick with a standard filename so that there are no errors. Some of these people just don't take direction well, will save the file wherever, or save the name inappropratly, or worse, open up multiple copies of the same file corrupting the name: ie: FileName.xls, FileName.xls(1), FileName1.

Open File - Check For Write Protection

Sep 18, 2009

I have a command that opens up another workbook. This workbook is sometimes open on another computer, so that the book opens up on my computer in write-protected mode (shows in the top of the window). Usually, when opening other books through the Excel functionality, a message box appears if the file is open and warns that the file is in use by another user. However, with the code I have at the moment, this is not the case when I try to open with my command. See code below:

Private Sub cmdOpenBook_Click()
'Open book
ChDir "I:DevelopmentSpecialUtvikling"
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"I:DevelopmentSpecialUtviklingJointApp.xls"
End Sub

Is there any way of displaying a msgbox warning when opening another file through VBA?
