I have a workbook that contains 4 macros. This workbook is copied by vb.net 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.
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.
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?
I have the following strange problem. A simple macro 'ActiveWorkbook.Close' causes excel to crash if I use it with a button on my sheet (a form). When I run the macro via developer > macros > run the macro runs as expected. Even if a run the macro with alerts (thanks to jproffer) the problem persist.
i m designing a test for a school and want to add a macro that will be assigned to a button at the end of the test i want the macro to close down the the excel program running and not prompt the user to save the workbook is there a vb code that can do this i have tryed a few but they all come back object not found.
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).
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)
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).
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 End Select
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.
I have a macro that opens all workbooks from one directory and runs a macro for each workbook to clean up the data. I cannot figure out how to take all those open workbooks and save them to another directory and close the workbook. Also, I do not want the macro workbook (xlsm) to save. I only want it to close. I am working in 2007 Excel.
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).
I need to know the command to close a workbook. I have used the information found here: http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/userform-close.htm to disable closing the workbook via the upper right "X", but I need a button that, when clicked, simply closes the workbook instead.
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..
I have the below code in a macro attached to a button. Basically, if i choose yes to the message box at the beginning then the macro copies the all the cells on the sheet 'selections', opens up a new workbook, pastes into here, deletes some unused cells, rows and columns, then sends the sheet as an attachment on an e-mail.
What i also need to do is when i have sent the e-mail, the macro closes the new workbook without saving changes.
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 Else 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 ThisWorkbook.Save Else 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)
One of my computers pulls info from my cash register once everyday (sales info). Then I have a excel monthly sales sheet that pulls the info from the register info and puts it in the right places. So the computer pulls the register info at 9:20pm everyday, then I have my task manager open excel at 9:25 everyday and it has a workbook open macro to automatically pull the info into the excel spreadsheet. Here's my problem-- I need to close it.
I'm sure I could use a workbook close macro, but when it tries to close it won't it come up with a save, don't save, cancel prompt? Nobody will be there to hit SAVE so it won't close? Is there just a macro that could save it then close it?
I have an Excel workbook that runs some code in the back. When I close the workbook file it seems to close OK. However if I then open the VBA editor window I still see the file in the project explorer. If I re-open and then close I have 2 instances in the project explorer... and so on. I have tried setting all objects to nothing etc. but the problem still manifests itself.
I didn't receive a response to a previous post where I was trying to use a batch file to close and open a workbook at a scheduled time everyday. I was thinking about this problem over the weekend, and thought that it would probably be easier to just use a macro to close the file at a certain time everyday (if it is open) and then use a batch file to open the file a couple of minutes later.
I'm having problems with what I thought should be pretty simple though. I tried this to close the file at 5:15pm
