Below is the code to open a csv file and paste it in the workbook "ResultFile". When i click on a button, a csv file will open to copy the values and paste it in "Resultfile". Now, i want to close the csv or excel file to be closed once copying has done.
I am working with a bunch of files to do a dashboard. I have the main file which shows end results and what my users will see "Dashboard". I have about 10-15 files which I export weekly from MS Access. and I have the "Dashboard Data" file. In this file I have a sheet which links all the information for the files exported from MS Access. In here I have named ranges and dynamic ranges plus additional columns created to look up information in other tables. I use this file as my source data for my Dashboard File so that I can reduce the size of the actually dashboard. Dashboard Data file is about 5.5 mb and my Dashboard is 300kb. I have 12 branches that need to view the data over a radius of a hundred miles so the smal file are better.
My problem: I can get the Dashboard Data file to update without opening all the 10-15 other files. I cant however make the Dashboard file update without opening the Dashboard Data file. I have it to auto update without prompting but its still tells me that it cannot update. I was wondering if there is some VBA code I could use that would work like this:
I open the Dashboard File, Dashboard Data file opens so that Dashboard file updates and then close Dashboard Data File so that the user never has to see the Dashboard Data file. I dont want them to see it or have access to it.
I have created several excel files as I cannot open them all at once since they are too large. So I have to open one excel file whilst closing another.

I want a macro that opens the excel file part 1 and part 2. Then it should close part 1 and after closing part 1 it should open part 3. Once part 3 is open, part 2 should be closed and when part 2 is closed part 4 should open. When part 4 is open, then part 3 should be closed and part 5 should open.
I am trying to write VB code that upon opening an excel spreadsheet a message box appears that the user must read, than select yes or no. If select yes than the file will open, if no the file closes or does not open. Here is what i have tried - it doesn't work.
Sub Auto_Open() YesNo = ("Are you sure you want to open?",vbYesNo + vbExclamation,"Will") If_vbYes Exit_Sub If_vbNo_Close End Sub
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'm trying to add a little error handling in my code. I have a macro that, when running opens a number of workbooks. At the end of the macro, my code then closes all the workbooks I've opened.
I was wanting to create an error-handling procedure that displayed a message box, and then closed any workbooks that I've opened during the course of the macro. Obviously the error could trigger at any point, so not all workbooks may have been opened at the time
My code is as follows - I've tried On Error Resume Next in the error-handling code, but Excel still returns an error that it can't find the Incidents_MTD sheet when trying to close it.
Code: On Error GoTo ReportError code code code ReportError:
I'm creating a template that will be opened by users and saved to a new name based on info provided by the user. I have macros triggered when opening and closing the workbook. The Before Closing sub does some data transfer between workseets. I'm running into a problem with the Open sub, however. I wanted to give the user a chance to abort the opening, giving a dialog that allows canceling. I wanted to just close the workbook.
However, if I include an Active.Workbook.Close line in the Open sub, it of course triggers the Before Close sub, but it leaves the On Open sub hanging. The workbook closes, but the next time I open it, the dialog in the Open sub doesn't come up. Close again, and it works ok or quit Excel between openings and it is ok. If I let the Open macro complete, bypassing the remainder of the macro if the user indcates canceling, how to I trigger closing within VBA? If the Open macro completes without an Activeworkbook.close statement things will just sit there until the user initiates closing.
Is there a way to terminate the Open sub from within the Before Closing sub if I create a flag to indicate closing started during the open sub or some other way around this problem?
I made an Excel based program that uses multiple workbooks with two main workbooks (“Master List” and “Products”) that all the others pull information from. I run into a problem when a user clicks the close X in the upper right hand corner and the entire application closes. I found some code that will let me close all the workbooks but one (the code is put in the “Products” workbook in the BeforeClose event).
For Each wb In Workbooks If Not wb Is ThisWorkbook Then wb.Close SaveChanges:=True End If Next wb
Is there a way to modify the code so it will close all the workbooks but the two main ones if someone clicks the close X button in the upper right hand corner?
When i open an excel file, i need it to print 3 copies and then close itself without saving. This is because i have a file that must have 3 copies printed everyday. I know its lazy =) but i'm sure it will be very useful and i have seen it on a file before however i cannot successfully replicate it.
I have tried to search these forms for some information on how to have VBA code check a file saved in an FTP site. I am hoping to use this file to contain version information where the workbook code will compare the version of the workbook to the version log saved in a text file on an FTP server. If they are different, I would like a pop up window to appear that notifies the user that there is a new file available, and perhaps a prompt to save that new file to the user's computer (it does not need to update and replace current workbook).
Is it possible to have VBA check an FTP site for this if I put the username and password in the code?
I've got a 'Control Panel' spreadsheet which is all based on UserForms. When a user clicks a particular button, it opens one of many separate 'Regional' sheets which they work in.
When the user closes the 'Regional' sheet, I would like the 'Control Panel' sheets userforms to show again. However I can find no way of doing this as it simply switches back to the 'Control Panel' sheet without loading the forms (as I had to hide the 'Control Panel' useforms to give them access to the 'Regional' sheet).
I use the below code to close ALL open Internet Explorer pages. Im trying to adapt this to close ALL Windows Explorer Folders.
Dim Shell As Object Dim IE As Object Dim i As Variant Set Shell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") i = Shell.Windows.Count On Error Resume Next Do While i > 0 i = i - 1 Set IE = Shell.Windows(i) If TypeName(IE.Document) = "HTMLDocument" Then IE.Quit
I have a batch script which runs the following line to open my excel sheet:
when this sheet opens it automatically refreshes from a csv file.
The problem is that I want this sheet to open, refresh and close. To close Excel I have been using the taskkill command in my batch script, but I have found that using this method doesn't update the sheet properly - the sheet only updates properly if I close Excel in the correct way, but this means manual input and I want this to be automatic.
I know the shortcut for grouping columns in excel is Alt + D + G + G or Shift + Alt + Right Arrow. Is there a shortcut to actually open and close grouped columns (i.e., the equivalent of clicking on the + sign at the top) without using the mouse?
I use the following code to open an existing open workbook in a new instance of Excel...
Everything works fine... What I would like to do is close (when I say close I mean, completely exit/quit the application). I'm not able to do that, the original Excel instance stays open with no spreadsheet open. I would just like it force the application to quit so that after running the code I would just have one Excel instance open (with the desired workbook, which works fine now)...
Public Sub Re_open_workbook() Application.DisplayAlerts = False ThisWorkbook.Save
Assume that the workbook Book1.xls opens a user form named myUserForm.
I'm trying to show only the user form on the desktop when I open Book1.xls, with Book1.xls minimized on the Taskbar.
And , if the Cancel button on the form is clicked, then unload the form and close Book1.xls.
In ThisWorkbook, I have the event:
Private Sub Workbook_Open() ActiveWindow.WindowState = xlMinimized ShowTheForm End Sub On the Form, I have the Cancel button:
Private Sub btnCancel_Click() Unload Me ThisWorkbook.Close True End Sub
The above procedure shows the form, with Microsoft Excel blank window in the background, and produces a small bar at the bottom left of the screen for Book1.xls Click the Cancel button, and both the Form and Book1.xls close, but the blank Excel window remain open !
I suppose I would not be able to edit this version of Book1.xls, but that is fine for now!
I am trying to append 365 text files into a single Excel sheet. The files have unique names corresponding to the day of data that they represent (i.e. 0101.txt, 0102.txt, 0103.txt etc.) I am looking for some code that will loop through a folder, open each file, copy all data, and append it without the headers into the single Excel sheet. Does anyone have some VBA code that would do this?
I have a userform in "text1.xls" workbook when I click on commandButton it validates Staff name and Staff number stored in sheet1 of "test1.xls" workbook and opens test2.xls file which is in different folder. Problem is how do I code to close or unload "test1.xls" after opening test2.xls
