Close Excel File

Nov 10, 2009

I wrote this code to open an excel file when a button is pushed. I also have another piece of code to close the excel field when another button is pushed. The problem: the code to close the excel only works on my computer. There is no error message, but the file doesn't not close on others' computer. Can you please advise on a solution?

Macro To Close One Excel File And Open Another?

Jul 18, 2014

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.

part1
part2
part3
part4
part5

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.

How To Close Text File That Was Opened By DLL Called By Excel

Mar 11, 2014

I call it from a macro. It is supposed to write some temporary files, and close them in the end, and delete them. Sometimes, the dll can't close properly, and the text files remain open.

With error treatment in my macro, I can continue execution, but i need to delete that files.

Since the dll DOES NOT CLOSE the files, i'm not able to delete them in my macro.

I need some way to close that files, in order to delete them.

When I use GetFile to reference the file, it remains as "File", which does not accept "Close" method. I can reference the file with myfile.OpenAsTextStream, but this way it seems to me that the file is opened again, and the "Close" method does not work either, with the file defined as a TextStream object.

If I close excel, I'm able to delete those files, but that's not the way I want. Since IT'S OPEN IN EXCEL PROCESS, I imagine there's some way to close it.

I need to open about 2000 documents one at a time, and save them with a different name.

they are a mix of word documents, PDFs and .jpg pictures.

some VBA like:


Open.file strPath & nextfile
where strpath = C:Temp

What should the line be? or is it more complex than a single line ?

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.

File Close Vba Code

Jan 29, 2007

The code below works perfectly when run from a macro button on a worksheet or when initiated using the VBA run option in the VBA editor but it does not run when run from a command button on a userform. The code is

Sub closer()
Dim bCancel As Boolean
Do Until bCancel = True
bCancel = Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSaveAs).Show
If bCancel = False Then MsgBox "Sorry, cannot Cancel", vbCritical
Loop

Automatically Close File And Save Changes With A New Name

Jun 13, 2009

I am trying to fix is that I have two computers networked together both with multiple users all with access to the report form that I am using which is in the shared file. If I have been working on it (I am still trying to do improvements when I have time), and I have to leave for a fire or forget to close the report, no one can access it other than with read-only.

My idea was to run some type of code that either when the screen saver comes on or after so much time with no activity, it would close and save the file with a new file name(just in case I don't want the changes that I have made in the code or something).

Using VBA To Open And Close Source File

Feb 1, 2010

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.

Open And Close File With No Extension

Feb 21, 2013

I opened a file, by file I mean a "file" with no extension that has commas separating it.

So I recorded a macro to open up the file and this works fine.

How do I close it? I tried

wk1 = ThisWorkbook.Name 'Main Worksheet
...
Workbooks(wk1).Activate
ActiveWindow.Close

But the problem is that "wk1" is not set equal to the name, probably because the file is not an excel file, it has no extension.

MsgBox If Statement To Close File

Apr 19, 2007

Upon a button click, I have a msgBox show to ask the user if they want to save the file before closing (with the option of cancelling). If the file name is something specific, I want the file to just close without saving.

I have the following code but am having the problem of the message box showing (disregarding the first if statement) and selecting No produces the same result as selecting the Cancel button.

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
myMsgBox = MsgBox("Would you like to save this file before closing?", vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion, "Save Message")

'If filename hasn't changed, just close w/o saving.
If ActiveWorkbook.Name = "Project Foundation v2.0" Then
ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False
Else...............

Close Text File With Code

Dec 29, 2006

I am trying to inch my way forward to writing a macro that will read in an external CSV file into a sheet (my next task will be to spread the date between multiple sheets based on regions). My first attempt at code is the following

Sub read_csv()
Dim strLine As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim filename As String
Dim ans As String
filename = "C:Documents and SettingsMichaelMina dokumentMina datakllorD123905.csv"
Open filename For Input As #1
i = 1
While Not EOF(1) And i < 10
Line Input #1, sLine
ans = MsgBox(sLine, vbOK, "hello there")
i = i + 1
Wend
' Close filename
End Sub

A couple of problems arise. When I debug the code, if I remove the comment on the close filename, the debugger complains with error 13 (incompatible types). If I comment the line and try and run the code twice in a row, I get a complaint about error 55 - file already open. I'm guessing that the close filename is the correct syntax - if it isn't, what should it be??

Disable Red X But Keep Enable File - Close Working

Dec 24, 2008

I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below)
I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.

The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.

VBA To Prompt If PDF Exists And To Overwrite - Close Existing File First?

Aug 17, 2014

I have an Excel sheet that I convert to PDF --here is Example of the name after PDF creates"Morning Report_08.16.14" , When it runs it just overwrites the file automatically if one was already on that date - I would like it to prompt to overwrite & if they choose 'yes' to overwrite the file and if not they can change the name If the new one is in addition to the one that already exists and I want it to save the new file with in the same folder.

Also when the current code is run if the PDF was left opened it stops the macro - Is it possible to see if that file is open and if so close it down so the code will work or is it possible to overwrite the file when open.

Save And Close File If There Is Text In Cell Range

Nov 12, 2012

I do have the below code to safe a file and close it:

Sub Save_Close()
'
' Save_Close Macro
'
'
ActiveWorkbook.Save
Application.Quit
End Sub

I would like to do additionally something else. I need a macro to do the above, but it should first check if cells A2:C9 do contain text. The text could be anything.

If there is text in ALL the cells, then the macro should save and close the file. If there is text missing in at least one of the cells, a message box should appear saying 'Please fill out all cells'.

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

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)
