Close Multiple Workbooks

Feb 16, 2007

How can I close the currentmonthend AND previousmonthend workbooks in the following code, but leave workbook "MoEnd Compare" open? I'd like to do some additional comparisons with the "MoEnd Compare" file. I tried the code below to close those two workbooks, but it is not working.

Sub check_month_end()
Dim currentmonthend
Dim previousmonthend
Dim project_current
Dim ptcurrent
Dim yearcurrent
Dim project_previous
Dim ptprevious
Dim yearprevious
Dim r As Integer
Dim c As Integer
Dim l As Integer
MsgBox "This will check project type and year on current and last period month end report."
currentmonthend = Application. GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", , "Select CURRENT Month End Report?")
previousmonthend = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", , "Select PREVIOUS Month End Report?").......................

Close All Open Workbooks Except......

Feb 25, 2008

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?

Dynamic Open/Close Of Workbooks Crashes

Dec 15, 2009

I'm working on developing a stock option trading system in Excel using a live data feed and VBA. It tends to crash after running flawlessly for a half hour to 2 hours. It seems to crash when loading a support workbook, so I was hoping you could take a peek at my code and see if there's a problem with the way I'm dynamically opening/closing workbooks.

In order to cope with limitations in the amount of live data that I'm accessing (through DDE with Reuters Station), I've split up the data I need into about 600 workbooks, which open when they're needed or close when they're not (through VBA). At any given time, about 35-40 of these workbooks are open.

The main workbook that uses all this live data and support workbooks is set to have the application recalculate every 5 seconds (automatic recalc crashes the program almost immediately). After that refresh, it calls other subroutines, including opening/closing these support workbooks:

Workbooks.Close Function Stops Code

Feb 16, 2009

We're using XP Pro using Excel 07

The background is there are about 40 people who use a Excel based program that contains a pivot and a bunch of other tools that they use on a regular basis, this set of tools has a version number. In this excel workbook, it has a function that looks on the network drive that we have and checks the local version vs the version on our network drive, if its wrong, then the user gets a popup stating your tools are out of date, would you like to update, then they click yes and I have these lines of code

Public Function GetNewTools()
Dim MyFullName As String

'Turn off alerts
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

'Open the new version of tools
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"Network DriveUpdate.xlsm"

End Function

The update file has this code that executes on fileopen in the thisworkbook section by calling the following sub

The main issue we're running into is near the very end, the code never makes it to "TEST 2". After the first workbooks close, the code just stops running. No crashes, errors, freezes, anything. It just stops running and never makes it to the second msg box.

Close Workbooks Saved As Elements In An Array

Feb 3, 2010

I have an array of data type Variant, who's elements are workbooks opened by a user.

The array size is static, which for now isn't a concern but I can't work out how to close the workbooks in the array via a loop and the usual vba code of Workbooks("file").Close

Code I have that doesn't work is:

Sub Close_Workbooks_In_An_Array ()

Dim dFile (1 to 6) As Variant
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer

' // Some code to open files, set each dFile(i) as a file and then process
' // them. Max value for i is 6

j = 1
For j = 1 To i
MsgBox ("Closing: " & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & dFile(j))
Next j

End Sub

Before Close Code Errors When Closing From Other Workbooks

Nov 21, 2006

I have a workbook which includes a simple set of options on closing such as selecting the front sheet, restoring scrollbars and saving the workbook. To avoid problems with subscripts out of range I am using the ThisWorkbook statement to close the workbook.

This works fine and causes the workbook to close when close is clicked on any excel window. The problem is that excel falls over when it tries to resume closing the other workbooks. I am given (ironically) an error saying "excel has encountered a problem and needs to close". Does anyone know how to work around this?

My code is below:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)

Call Toolbars9(True)
With ActiveWindow
.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = True
.DisplayWorkbookTabs = True
End With

Automatically Open, Copy, And Close Multiple Workbooks

Jul 26, 2006

I have 77 excel workbooks that are created each week, they are all in the same directory. I have to open each one and copy the data into a single workbook. The file names change slightly each week.

example: DIST_91124_GROWTH_PRODUCT XXX _07072006.xls The 07072006 is the week ending date and will change. Each of the 77 files has a different DIST_number.

Is there a way to automate this process, it takes me about 4 hours to do it manually.

Formulas Move When Cutting And Pasting Workbooks

Jul 14, 2014

I've set up a spreadsheet structure at work which is three workbooks linked together.

I created this initially within My documents saved locally to my machine. Now though, I need to move the folder containing these workbooks onto the server to be accessed by others. My problem is that when cutting and pasting the folder, the formulas within the three spreadsheets still refer to their original location within My Documents rather than following the folder to their new location.

Move/Copy 1 Worksheet From From Multiple Workbooks Into 1

Oct 5, 2009

I have to report on 6 departments each with 6 sub departments weekly. First I need to consolidate 6 ( move/copy worksheet to consolidated workbook using a macro) separate worksheets (all saved in the same folder) per department into single workbook (preferably generated automatically by macro/code). I then need to repeat the above process for another 6 files per sub department. The output files should be pasted as "values" while retaining all other formatting. In essence I need to automate the whole right click on tab, select move or copy worksheet function in excel to take the load out of doing it manually.

Move Workbooks To New Instance Of Excel By Click Of Button?

Sep 5, 2013

I am looking for a way to move workbooks to a new instance of excel by the click of a button. For example if I have multiple workbooks open under one instance of excel I do not want to have to minimize this and that... I have multiple monitors and I would like to hit a button on a selected workbook and have it auto open it to a new instance of excel. I image this may not be apart of excel and that it might require a macro to do so.

Copy Worksheets From A Couple Of Workbooks To Other Workbooks

Jun 26, 2014

I have 25 files with certain worksheets that I need to move to 25 other files.

Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook A needs to be moved to Workbook A-2014 Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook B needs to be moved to Workbook B-2014 Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook C needs to be moved to Workbook C-2014 etc....

Is there a way to do this with a macro? Preferably I would like to do this automaticly - i.e. runing the macro from a master file that

1. Opens Workbook A copies the worksheets
2. Open Workbook A-2014 paste the sheets
3. Save and close Workbook A-2014
4. Close workbook A without saving

then doing the same for Workbook B, etc.

Sum Several Workbooks

Aug 5, 2008

I've got a workbook for every department which is used to make a weekly status. Each of these workbooks contains a sheet with the 'weekly statuses over time', i.e. a table showing the weekly status for the department for week 1, week 2, week 3 etc. I've attached the file to make it easier to understand what I'm talking about, see Weekly_Test. Currently I can only see the performance of each department but I would like to be able to see the total performance for all departments, i.e. have a 'Total workbook' where all the weekly statuses are summed up weekly.

In the Weekly_Test file you can see the code which is used to generate the 'weekly status' sheets (also inserted at the end of this post). All workbooks for the departments are the same, apart from the file name which is the name of the department and this does not change. The weekly status is generated in the following way:

In the sheet 'Indtastning' (data entry) you enter the data and the date. Then click 'Update'. The sheet is then copied to a new sheet with the date and all data is copied to the table in the 'his.status' sheet. Now, I would like to add some code so that when I click 'Update' the data which is copied to the table in the 'his.status' sheet is also copied to a similar table in the 'Total' workbook.

Dim indtastArk
Dim arkDato
Public Sub Opdater()
arkDato = Cells(1, 1)

' nulStilIndtastning
End Sub
Private Sub OpretDatoArk()
With ActiveSheet
End With

ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Add Before:=Sheets(4)......................

Linking To Other Workbooks

Jun 20, 2014

It is quite standard to create links between workbooks, and generally I do this by inserting an "=" sign in the cell I want data to appear in for Workbook 1, I then open workbook 2 where the desired data is and click on the cell housing the data I want.

I just went to do this, and upon putting the = sign in the cell I want in workbook 1 and clicking in workbook 2 nothing happens except my cursor is now in workbook 2 and the = sign just remains alone in the workbook 1 cell.

If, however, I put an = sign in a cell in workbook on and then click another cell in that sheet or a cell in another worksheet but in the same workbook a proper link is created, so the problem seems to be isolated to links to other workbooks.

Link To Other Workbooks

If you are working in an excel spreadsheet that is linked to other excel files, when you double click on the cell that is linked to another workbook, it immediately opens the linked workbook if your settings are correct. How do you change your settings to enable this functionality?

VLookup And DV Over 2 Workbooks

Jan 13, 2013

I want to link two workbooks together with the aim that when a option is selected in a drop down menu in workbook "band form", it auto populates the rest of the form with data from the second workbook "showsales2013". date, ticket price, support acts etc etc.......

as a example,the drop down in workbook "band form" is a list of bands (list data also taken from showsales2013) ive got this bit working ok (i think ), each band is playing on a different day so i have used this formula to get the "date" from "showsales2013"


this seems to work until i insert a new row and/or column (in the showsales wookbook - which needs doing from time to time as new bands get booked to play), then i get #REF in the date cell on the "band form blank".

i used pretty much the same formula to pull the other needed data (price/support acts etc ) from showsale2013, and the result is the same, #REF.

Opening Two Workbooks Using VBA?

Feb 6, 2014

I have a spreadsheet that I need to open two other workbooks to copy and paste data from.

The name of the two workbooks changes each day, and the location because they are filed in subfolders.

I have the following code, which works to open the first sheet but then comes up with the following error when trying to open the second sheet. "Run-time error '1004: Excel cannot access 'Hub PVA'. The document may be read only or encrypted".

The folder is not encrypted because when I was only opening the second document with the same code, it worked.
