Close And Reopen Workbook From Macro Stored Inside Workbook

Mar 30, 2007

I have a Macro that is stored in a specific workbook,"Projection Modeler.xls" the last line performed in this macro is the close workbooks without saving chages(this needs to be done due to the way this macro was written, and it would take too long to rewrite). If I would then like to reopen this workbook, and then rerun this macro, can I do this from inside the current macro (in a new sub routine, for instance), or do I have to write a macro outside of the workbook and then open the workbook and call the routine?

Save, Close, Then Reopen Workbook

Oct 2, 2007

I am testing the following section of code.

Sub Macro1()
Dim NewWB As Workbook, NewName As String
Set NewWb = Workbooks.Add
NewName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(ThisWorkbook.Name)
NewWb.SaveAs NewName
NewWb.Close False
Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "/" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
End Sub
It seems like I need to rename the sheet I am working on in order for this code to work. If I do not, it tells me that it "cannot save this workbook with the same name as another open workbook".

I am trying to use this code to get around an error with Excel described here: [url]

I would like to have the sheet save itself (not "Save As"), close, reopen, and continue running the macro. What adjustments do I need to make to this code to do this. I have tried different things, but I must be getting the syntax wrong.

Macro To Create New Workbook And Sheets Inside Each Workbook

Mar 31, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which has all the names of trips from a warehouse, the day that they operate (1,2,3 etc) and the job line allocated to each trip. It looks something like that:


I would like to create a macro that will be creating 7 new workbooks and then in those workbooks as many sheets as the trips. In these sheets, the customers should be displayed.

How do I write it? I could not find how to have a "dynamic choice" in the macro. I.e. not to have the criteria as "1", "trips1" but to choose from the range of inputs that are available.

Macro Close Without Saving Reopen

Jan 6, 2010

Using excel 2003, I have a ss that uses filters and sorting. I can get to the data I want but must reopen the workbook if I want to start over and extract different information. I tried installing this VBA:

Sub CloseMe()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:10"), "OpenMe"
ThisWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

Sub OpenMe()
MsgBox "I'm Back!"
End Sub

This is my first time at inserting VBA. Usually I just use keystroke macros. I have set my Excel VB Book options to: Option Explicit double clicked the sheet I was using and under general inserted the code, closed Ctrl+Q, saved workbook. When I reopened and tried to use it all I get is I'm Back! nothing else happens. One time it actually ran and reopened but it appeared that the workbook was saved before closing because it was still sorted. What I need is it to completely unsorted as it is when I first open it so I can start over.

Close Workbook With Macro

Sep 22, 2009

I have a workbook that contains 4 macros. This workbook is copied by application with another name. When I run the macro in the copied worksheet, the Original file/workbook is opened automatically, and it is open until the copied workbook is closed.

My question:

1) Is this normal, when a copied workbook invokes a macro from the original workbook, the original workbook opens?

2) Is it possible to close the original workbook while executing the macro from the copied workbook?

3) Will that affect the macro in the copied workbook?

4) If possible to close the original workbook, kindly help me with the code.

Refresh All Queries On Workbook Open When Finished Print To PDF Then Close Workbook

Jan 23, 2014

I have data that daily needs to be refreshed and printed to pdf.

I figure the simplest way to do this would be to task schedule the workbook to open daily. Then on open it will refresh the data, print it after all data has been refreshed and close the workbook.

I set it up originally without the need to print so I have all the queries set to refresh when opening the file, however when I now try and put the code to print to pdf on the workbook open event it runs before the queries are finished running. (Query notes: queries were created through Microsoft query, and are accessing a MySQL database queries set to refresh when opening the file queries set to enable background refresh).

Macro To Open / Close / Save Workbook?

Mar 14, 2014

I need to have a workbook (all of them in a folder, ideally) refresh in the middle of the night. The file is large so the refresh takes a full minute. I know I can't auto refresh a closed workbook (pretty sure anyway), and I can't leave the workbook open for various reasons.

So I'm thinking I could have a macro in an open excel (it kicks off on open) that will open a particular workbook elsewhere (the one I need refreshed), open it, refresh it and close/save it. Ideally it would do this for the entire group of workbooks in the folder but I'd be happy to start with just one. I would like to set it to occur every twelve hours (so at midnight, say, this would occur - I would just have to leave the workbook with the macro in it open on a computer so that it runs and completes this task every night).

Macro Runs On Wrong Workbook On Close

Jul 29, 2009

I have a macro on a particular workbook that runs when the workbook closes.

This runs fine when I close the workbook itself. If I happen to have other workbooks open and then I close EXCEL rather than an individual workbook, my macro that runs on close always runs when it is not the active workbook.

To put it another way, say that my 'run on close' macro is workbook 1. I also have workbooks 2 and 3 open as well. If workbook 3 is the active workbook and I choose to close Excel (and thus close all three workbooks), my 'run on close' macro runs straight away and, worse still, will run it on workbook 3 (my active workbook).

How can I stop the macro running until it is the active workbook in the closing chain, so that it only runs on the correct workbook? (workbook 1 in my example)

Script To Run Macro On Workbook Open And Close

Nov 13, 2011

I am relatively new to writing script in excel. I have a 34 sheet workbook that includes inputs, intermediate calculations and then reporting outputs.

I am trying to write macros to do the following

1. On opening - all sheets except a contents page (with macro buttons on it) are hidden
2. One of the macros on this page will unhide all sheets (i.e. a 'developer mode')
3. One of the macros will unhide all relevant input and reporting sheets (i.e. a 'user mode')

I originally set up macros to run on workbook opening that hid all sheets except the contents page and this was working but ran into trouble when I opened up the 'User Mode' saved my changes and exited - the macro didnt work when I went to open again (I think because some of the sheets were visible and some werent and it was trying to hide sheets that were already hidden).

To counter this I set up a macro that made all worksheets visible on workbook closing - this works except I keep getting a 'Save' prompt from excel because the location of selected cells (or the sheet I am viewing) has changed from last opening (not to mention the inputs may change).

I am thinking the best way to fix this as follows:

1. Keep the opening macro the same
2. Keep the user/developer macros the same
3. On closing - develop a macro that unhides all sheets after the user has selected whether or not they have made changes to the sheet in a pop up message box - if they choose yes then they are prompted to save as and then the macro to hide all sheets runs on the new version - if they choose no then they are not prompted to save the document (i.e. next time they open they will be opening back at the contents page with the same inputs they started with in the previous session).

Allow User To Restart Macro Or Close Workbook

Jun 25, 2008

I have a macro that runs when the workbook opens. At the end of my macro I've added a Yes/No box. If 'No' the workbook closes without saving. If 'Yes' I would like to restart the macro. I can close it ok, but I don't know how to restart the macro from line 1 when 'Yes' is selected. Here is what I have:

YesNo = MsgBox("Done! Would you like to run again?", vbYesNo + vbCritical, "Caution")
Select Case YesNo
Case vbYes

'I don't know what to put here :(

Case vbNo
ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False

Close / Reopen Excel Using Taskkill

Mar 17, 2014

I have the following code that needs to execute. Basically, every once in a while, our terminal program encounters an error that makes it so Excel and it can't talk to each other. The only way to fix this is by killing the entire process tree of both terminal and Excel, or restarting the computer. I've written this bit of code in the event it starts happening while someone is using the macro - it checks to see if the two can talk, and if they can't, it just kills both programs.

[Code] .....

Is there any way to launch Excel with a 8 second delay, so that once the kill command executes, Excel re-opens? Or could I write a batch file with delay built in to execute prior to the kill command? I could use Shell to execute that prior to killing Excel, but I'm not sure if that's possible....

Compile Error On Close Of Excel 2003 But Not On Close Of Workbook

Mar 22, 2012

I am using Excel 2003.

It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.

These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.

These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.

Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.

Using Workbook Name Stored As A Variable

Jul 27, 2006

I am opening a workbook using a macro. I need to run a macro in the workbook I am opening when it opens. I have created a variable containing the workbook name but don't know how to use it to run the macro.

Dim WBName
WBName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
Application.Run _
"'DIST_91094_EDTABS_DIABETES CARE_07072006.xls'!aStartProcess"

'DIST_91094_EDTABS_DIABETES CARE_07072006.xls'! needs to be replaced by the name stored in WBName

aStartProcess is the name of the macro in that workbook I want to run.

Save Workbook On Workbook Close

Aug 26, 2006

I snagged this code out from another project I wrote, and it works fine in that one, but doesn't in the new project.

What I want, is when the person presses the exit button, it will save whatever was done, its running as a form printer and database. The code below is the code for my exit button.

Private Sub CommandButton4_Click()
Dim sAnswer As String
Dim i As Integer

' ****************
' ** Exit Button**
' ****************

When it gets to "If ActiveWorkbook.Saved = False Then" it does put the question out "Do you want to save changes" I click Yes and it doesn't save it.. I have tried both activeworkbook and thisworkbook ... I copied the code and verified all is good to go..

Correct Syntax To Add Workbook Name That Is Stored In Variable Into Formula?

Feb 24, 2014

I have the following code, which executes just fine:


The problem is that I need to run this again in a different column, and the data is held in another sheet that I have given the variable StepTwo to.

I'm not sure of the syntax to do this. Basically - this is what I need the code to do:

[Code] ....

Understandably this is totally incorrect, but it's the best I can do to explain what I'm actually trying to do....

The two parts of SUMIF are both held in a workbook that I've given the variable "StepTwo" to. Both sets of data are also held on Sheet(1) of that workbook.

How To Reference Worksheets Inside Workbook

Jul 3, 2013

I do a payroll workbook for my small company. Each sheet inside the workbook is a month. Each sheet totals the monthly labor categories. I would like to keep a "year to date" total on each employee and therefore would have to reference each sheet.

Setting up a formula (or tell me where to look) on how to total worksheets inside a workbook?

Example: the workbook contains a total of 12 sheets, representing the 12 months of the year. Add "cell reference" from sheet 1 to sheet 2 to sheet 3 to reach a total, then when sheet 4 is completed it contains the cumulative totals of all 4 sheets, etc., etc. Where I can look at this "year to date total" and compare to last years "year to date total".

Link To Address Of Data In Other Workbook Inside A Formula

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to use some data from other workbooks in a formula. However, the path to the other workbooks we are using will often change.

I think that the user can enter the path to the other workbook in a cell in this workbook. However, I'm getting errors in my formula and am not sure how to make the formula use the cell to reference the location of the workbook that has the data that we want.

This is what I have, but it's giving me an error.

=Countif(' & 'Instructions'!B9 & Planning'!$I$3:$I$100, "C")

'Instructions'!B9 contains the location of the other workbook in the format \path[filename] Planning'!$I$3:$I$100 is the location of the range in the other workbook.
