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).
At work we use a spreedsheet to control our holidays. The problem we are having is the file is stored on a network and some people are opening the file and not closeing it once done with, this is locking out others from using it.
Is there any VBA code that will close the file, if not used in say 5 mins
I have a summary file (I'll call it File A) from which a macro is run. It opens other files, finds a "total line" then copies it into File A. Then it closes that file, opens another, and repeats the process. The macro works fine for most of the files it opens and closes, but on some of them, upon the close command, a dialog box pops up asking "Do you want to save the changes you made to "File B.xls"?
I'm not sure why this comes up as there were no changes made. Cells were only copied and pasted into another file. Is there a way to stop this annoying box from popping up? It slows down the macro by waiting for human input. here is my
When a user X's (clicks of the X in the titlebar) of a user form, I want to save whatever input has been made to that point and close the application. this is what I tried but it neither saved input nor closed the application
I know how to add a save and close button but i do not know how to make it instantly available in every new workbook that i open. Currently i click the button and it looks for the macro in the first excel book that i created it in.
how do i make that macro become a default in every workbook?
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 a macro that has to open another worksheet and get data and close the sheet. The problem is when the sheet closes after I have gotten the data it asks if I want to save it. I don't want the user of my macro to see this option because it slows things down. To avoid this in the past I had the worksheet save itself so that it wouldn't ask me to save. Now the worksheet is large and it takes a while to save and it is getting slow. Is there any way not to save it but close it without having excel asking if you want to save it?
I need to use the BeforeClose event to save the workbook with the same name when a user closes it. (82 users and they all seem to want to give it their own name.) I have the following code in the BeforeClose event but would like to eliminate the prompt "this file already exists, do you want to replace it" I have tried using the Application.DisplayAlerts = False but this seems to stop the workbook from saving. I have a public demention called wbName and is set to the workbook name in an outo open macro
Public wbName Public Sub auto_open() wbName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
UserForm2.Show MsgBox "PLEASE do Not insert rows/columns or enter calculations" _ & Chr(10) & " " _ & Chr(10) & "Enter Only Account Name, Date, and Corresponding_ Calls/Details", vbCritical, "Caution" End Sub
When a supervisor goes into one of my sheets and adds some things in, she quite often forgot to share it again. To try and combat this I added the following code:-
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(cancel As Boolean) Dim myworkb As String myworkb: myworkb = ThisWorkbook. Name If myworkb = "SLE.MasterSheet.SLE1.xls" Then Call NoProtection ActiveWorkbook. SaveAs Filename:="SLE.Mastersheet.SLE1.xls", accessmode:=xlShared End If Call Limpa Run "DeleteMenu" End Sub
The code appears to do everything it should, and when I first ran it appeared to be ok. However, now it appears to save it as shared yet when you go back into the file it opens up as exclusive.... Is there a reason why the code wont "share" ?
I call the macro below from a Workbook_BeforeClose sub; however, if the user has not saved changes before they hit the close then the Sub SaveFile runs and then after the backup save they are then asked do you want to save changes.
I initially had this sub run with Workbook_BeforeSave, but I don't really want to run this everytime the user selects save.
Any ideas on how to how the save changes first and then the backup?
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.
I've got some code that reformats a file that a supplier sends us. They seem to randomly change the structure, so I'm trying to make the code a bit more robust.
Part of the code uses MATCH to look for specific column headings, so I've got some error handling around this of the format:
On Error GoTo NoIncCol Line using MATCH On Error GoTo Exiting where Exiting is my standard error handling (Close without Save) and NoIncCol is the same, but with an error message saying that the term the code was trying to MATCH can't be found. This works well for me.
In another part of the code, I need to check for another column heading, which so far has turned up in two different forms. At the moment I'm doing this as follows:
With Sheets("Sheet1").Range("1:1") Set rFound = .Find("Term1") If Not rFound Is Nothing Then a = "Term1" Else
This feels a bit clunky, and I don't really like having what is essentially error-handling in the middle of my code. But the only other way I can think of to do it is to use a GoTo, and I believe that's not really considered good practice either.
I am trying to create a form button that will save as and close the active workbook. I have the Save As code working but I can't find any code to close the workbook that will work. A couple of issues: I don't have control of what the workbook is called - the user will name it - so I can't do a simple Workbooks (" ").Close. Also, I don't want to quit the application. I don't know if the user will have other worksheets open. I also tried ActiveWorkbook.Close and that didn't seem to work either. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
Workbook 1 has references to workbooks 2,3,4,5,6. When I click the top cross and choose Save All with Workbook 1 active, the deactivate event in workbook 6 runs to the end as it tries to close, but it can't close because workbook 1 references it. So nothing further happens until I click the top cross again. Then everything closes without any more prompts. Not good. If I could ensure workbook 1 closes first that should solve the problem. There may be another way of course.
I have attached 2 blank files to show the problem. test1 references test2. Open test1. It will open test2. Make a change to both files, activate test 1 and click the top cross, choose save all. Nothing happens usually.
Application starts with a button on an otherwise empty spreadsheet. Then opens a user form. After I close using a button on the form. My close routine closes the worksheets and workbooks. I then quit the application and I get a message asking if I want save the original spreadsheet.
I have an issue where users to a work book are selecting autofilter and then saving the document with rows filtered out, which I wish to prevent or at least warn them to remove the filter before allowing the save function.
The document is never 'Save As', it's always 'Save' from the toolbar icon.
They should be permitted to save the document, but only after this check has been completed and a message issued if the filter is on.
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 'Summary' workbook which collates values from a series of 'sub-workbooks', (and can also update values in those sub workbooks). the subworkbooks are setup so that when they are saved they also copy certain values out to another 'backup' file. So there are 2 possible routes that the files will be used in:
1) SubWorkbook opened directly - User opens SubWorkbook and makes some changes. - User closes the SubWorkbook saving changes, or clicks the save button. The BeforeSave event opens the "restore" workbook, copies over the key values from the subworkbook, then saves & closes the "restore" workbook.
2) SubWorkbook opened remotely - User / Admin opens the "Summary" workbook and changes an option. - The summary workbook opens a subworkbook and makes changes, then saves it. The subworkbook should (as before), then open the restore workbook and save the key values etc.
The problem is in the second scenario the 'restore' workbook doesn't get opened.
I have created a set of 3 workbooks to illustrate the problem here. Book1.xls = Summary workbook Book2.xls = Subworkbook Book3.xls = Restore workbook.
If you open book2 and then save it the 'BeforeSave' event will cause it to open book3 and write the output of 'Now()' to the next free row of book3-columnA, before then closing and saving book3,......
