Closing Notepad From Excel

Sep 4, 2009

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?

Notepad To Excel

Jan 23, 2010

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

Convert The Notepad File Into Excel

May 20, 2008

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”.

Excel VBA To Launch Notepad And Save

Oct 14, 2011

I want to know if it is possible to launch a blank notepad from an existing excel spreadsheet and then type relevant "history notes" into notepad and save.

I am creating a manual spreadsheet for the company I am working for which is being used for Maintenance Planning / Scheduling and creating of work orders. Once the work order has been raised and the job has been completed it then needs to be closed out on the spreadsheet and any relevant notes entered in. I am hoping to be able to have a link that opens notepad by the click of a button within the spreadsheet and it allows the user to record any notes against that work order and save. These notes can then viewed by future users.

Excel 2010 :: Copying Data From Notepad?

Aug 27, 2012

I have problems copying data (from notepad, values are in scientific notation) into Excel 2010 worksheet. This problem only occurs with one of my laptops. I also tried this on my partner's laptop and no problem at all.

My new laptop (which I would like to use in the lab) has Windows 7 professional installed on it. I bought my laptop in Austria/Germany, so I changed the language from German to English. I then installed Microsoft Office 2010 on my laptop (which I am also using on my main laptop- without any issues). I have changed my default language to English UK.

The issue is as follows: Here is a small sample of the data from notepad

3.33343e-03 1.51357e-03 0.00000e+00 0.00000e+00 4.96507e-01 3.84643e-03 6.24332e+00 1.81305e+03

I select & copy the data from the notepad (also tried notepad++) and paste it into the Excel 2010 worksheet. This is what I get in Excel:
3.33E+02 1.51E+02 0.00E+00 0.00E+00 4.97E+04 3.85E+02 6.24E+05 1.81E+08

When I use another spreadsheet package (MagicPlot Student version), there are no problems. I have also installed Notepad++ and experience the same issue. So somehow Excel is increasing the value by 5 orders of magnitude. When I copy the values from another Excel sheet into a new Excel sheet, there are no problems. I have re-installed the Microsoft Office suite several times and the problem is still there. I can't re-install Windows 7 as I don't have the installation discs.

Closing Excel File Using VB

Apr 19, 2014

At the moment, there is no compile error or runtime error, but if I manually attempt to open the file (that was successfully read from), I get the message that the file is already open and is locked by myself (the user) and that multiple Excel processes are still running (I checked the task manager).

How do I close this Excel file (no changes to be made since I only read from the file) and quit Excel from running ?

Here is what I have at the moment :

Dim FirstName, Surname As String
'file path and name for the Excel file
Dim FileNamePath As String = "C:UsersMRCDesktopMRC FilesVisual Basic FilesSwimManager 2014CurrentSeasonDATASquadData.xls"

Excel 2010 :: Workbook Not Closing Correctly When Accessed Via Link On Sharepoint Site

Feb 18, 2013

I was asked to create a userform for the use of our whole team which would enable them to select a name from a dropdown list and then it would display their business contact details in the rest of the form.

I'm running Office 2010 and Windows XP server/enterprise edition (not quite sure which). After some research I've managed to use VBA code to open the userform while hiding the workbook, then when the close button is clicked it closes the user form and it's associated workbook using the code below.

Code:
' ThisWorkbook module
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.Visible = False
UserForm1.Show
End Sub
'UserForm module
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Unload UserForm1
ThisWorkbook.Close (False)
End Sub

This works great when the excel file is accessed directly. However when the excel file is accessed via the link on my teams Sharepoint site it doesn't. When the Userform is closed the underlying workbook and data is then displayed which then has to be closed separately.

Excel 2010 :: Crash - Ready Calculate Flashing Taskbar When Closing / Opening Userform

Jan 8, 2014

Excel will hang up as if it's gone into a continuous loop (Although no looping macros are active) when you open or close a user form. The task bar in Excel will flash Ready Calculate. Visual basic reports no code is running but excel either crashes or becomes very unresponsive. I have to exit and reopen excel in order to fix the problem . It also doesn't happen at any one specific point it can vary. I have various VLOOKUPs around the workbook and userforms display the correct information. I use the INDEX formula in the control source of textboxes. I also use the offset formula to make sure DTPICKER displays correctly.

I am using 'Option Explicit' at the start of all my code. I have tried a 3rd party code cleaner. No visual Basic references are MISSING

Export Value To Notepad Using FSO

Jun 1, 2009

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()
Range("D2").Select
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

Copy And Paste From Notepad VBA

Dec 3, 2009

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.

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).
