Closing Notepad From Excel

In my spreadsheet, a series of macros calls an external program/application three times.

Each time the program finishes, it (and not Excel, as I formerly thought) opens a resource (*.res) file in Notepad, which of course goes into the taskbar. Since I need to run the spreadsheet seven or eight times in a row, the taskbar can get cluttered quickly.

The program opens three different instances of the same filename: iroutine.res.

Is there a way to get Excel to close these Notepad files (if it's simpler to do, it can kill all instances of Notepad) when it finishes running its routines?

Closing Workbook When Closing Userform
I have a userform which opens when the workbook opens. Ideally Id like to have the userform open without the workbook coming up and have the workbook close when you close the userform. If thats not doable then is there a way to just close the workbook when the userform is closed?

Notepad To Excel
I am wondering how would one go about turning a notepad file into an excel file without all the data being lumped into one cell?

for example the following notepad file is in this format:

20060102 190100;139.14;139.2;139.14;139.15;14
20060102 190200;139.19;139.19;139.16;139.18;16
20060102 190300;139.19;139.2;139.17;139.17;16
20060102 190400;139.16;139.24;139.16;139.2;22
20060102 190500;139.19;139.22;139.19;139.21;7

and I would like it in an excel file in the same format but with each group of digits seperated by a cell:

so for example my first line......

20060102 190100;139.14;139.2;139.14;139.15;14

I would like 20060102 in its own cell, followed by 190100 in its own cell, followed by
;139.14, followed by ;139.15, followed by ;14

Export Value To Notepad Using FSO
Basically what it do is it'll extract the value in D2 and use it to saved as the .txt file name.

But I'm wondering if it's possible to write a addition code to extract the value in F2 to Part1 and G2 to Part2.

For short which means Column D is the file name but which file have 2 parts. First is store in F2 and the second part is in G2. I know it's something got to do with "ts.Write ActiveCell.Offset(, 1).Text"

Sub Export_To_TextFile()
Do While Not ActiveCell = ""
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.Filesystemobject")
Set ts = fso.CreateTextFile("C:Documents and SettingschanyoDesktopUpload" & ActiveCell.Value & "_Part1", True)

Set ts = fso.CreateTextFile("C:Documents and SettingschanyoDesktopUpload" & ActiveCell.Value & "_Part2", True)

ts.Write ActiveCell.Offset(, 1).Text
Set fso = Nothing
Set ts = Nothing
End Sub

Copy And Paste From Notepad VBA
I have two macros. The first one gets a file name and worksheet name. Then it calls the second macro which opens up notepad (with the specified file name) and pastes the information in excel. The problem that occurs is when I call the second macro more then once in a row from the first macro. It runs great the first time but then problems occur as it tries to run the macro again. (Some times it just closes my excel file with prompting me to save). Calling any of the files works on an individual basis (I've tried for all three). I've erased some of the code due to privacy issues but path location is identical for all three files. Here is the code.

Convert The Notepad File Into Excel
I have a notepad file that contains data. We need to convert the notepad file into excel and then segregate the data after conversion. Segregation point would be the point where in we can find keyword “Summary”. We need to create a macro that finds the occurrence of summary keyword. Then from the beginning till that summary point cut the entire data and paste in other worksheet. Name the worksheet as “Receivables” or “Payables” or “Fee Payable” depending what type of data that summary contains.

After creating different worksheets we need to format the worksheet in specific format.
For example: I have attached the “Recon1” XL file attached. Under Recon1 – “RECEIVABLES 1” contains the as is data converted from notepad. Later we need to modify the same data using macro as specified in “RECEIVABLES 2” and then as per the format available in “RECEIVABLES 3”.

Export Column To Notepad And Save
I have a workbook with a bunch of live data feeds. 2 columns need to be exported to notepad as .zr0 & .zr1 files. Is there a way to copy the selected range, open & paste into notepad, then save the notepad file with a filename based on a cell reference?

I'm sure this is a fairly complicated process but I haven't had any luck in researching the topic because it seems as though the related posts on here are for people who want all kinds of wacky stuff done (ie. not saving, strictly to print, creating a shell and destroying the file... not my intention)

Just looking for some guidance on a simple macro to copy a range, paste it into notepad, save file with name based on a cell in the same column (will overwrite each time the macro is run).

Copy A Filtered Range To Notepad
I would like to copy a column from a filtered range to notepad. The main steps of this method are these:

2.Select the required rows and copy
3.paste the values to A1000 (range2) notepad and set the filename by a cell value
5.paste the range to notepad
6.delete range1 and range2

Unfortunately, I use macros and vb not so often, so I'm not expert in it.
I have found two useful code, but I don't know how can I combine them.

For step 1

Closing A Sub
Though VBA is very similar to VB6 (which is what I took a course in a few years ago) there are some things I can't figure out. One of them is ending and closing a procedure (i.e. if an "if then" statement is not met). In VB6, if I remember correctly, you would use "Me.Close". What is a similar method in VBA for taking this action?

Project Not Closing In VBE
I have a macro in a workbook (WB1) that opens another workbook (WB2). After performing several other macros through user invocation with buttons, I close WB2 with the following statement:

While the WB2 workbook closes okay, the WB2 project is still open in the VB editor. Does anybody know why this code isn't closing the project in the VBE?

The WB1 process can occur multiple times while Excel is open and each time a separate occurrence of the WB2 project is left open in VBE.

Closing A Workbook That Is Open Via VBA
Well I seem to be having an issue in a form i created. What happens is that when the user clicks a button it saves a worksheet of workbook as its own file, problem is that it will actually open the new worksheet as a workbook when I really just want it to save without opening a new instance. Here is the code

Dim IntWirefilename As String
IntWirefilename = "International Wires Database"
Worksheets("Intwires").SaveAs FileName:="File Path" & IntWirefilename & (".xls")
Workbooks("File PathInternational Wires Database.xls").Close
I think the problem lies in the last line or it could be from the select and copy part.

I do not want it to open a new file after it saves it. Also can anyone help create a part that will bypass the overwrite existing file thing so that this file will just continuously save as the same file name rather than prompting the user constantly to Overwrite the file.

If I select the macro in editor and run it, it does just what I want, so dont understand what is going wrong. Do I have to put in some kind of prompt, or manually run this before close - preferably I would like it to just run.

secondly, I have password protected the workbook, but have to put the password in the macro, is there any way of making this invisible to anyone who then reads the macro....

Prevent Closing Of One Workbook When Two Are Open
I'm trying to prevent a user from closing a perticular workbook.

Here is some important factors.

Workbook(A) = "LA-01-04-10" This is only one of 52 other but only one is open at a time.

Workbook(B) = "LA.xls" Always the same name and is always opened when one of the workbooks(A) above it opened.

When workbook (A) is opened it will then open another workbook (B) at that time the window is hidden workbook(B) So the user can only see workbook (A) I have a button on workbook(A) that unhides the window to show workbook(B) After the user completes his work in Workbook (B) they need to click another button that sorts the list and returns them to workbook(A) (Which also hides the window for workbook(B).

The problem is I have users that are trying to close workbook(B) instead of pressing the sort list button. So what I want is to prevent the user from closing workbook(B) by displaying a msgbox saying they need to press the button.

Ive tried several approches to this but I'm still having problems. The below script works if workbook(B) is active or shown. The message is displayed and the workbook will not close. However if the user is in workbook (A) and trys to close the message is displayed and both workbooks close like they are suppose to. But why is the message displayed?

One other note I should say is that not only does workbook(A)Open workbook (B) but it also closes it. Which may be why I'm having problems?

I have also included both workbooks so you can see all the code.

I have this code in Thisworkbook of workbook(B)
