Open All Excel Files In Directory - Code Doesn't Work For One Specific Path

Feb 8, 2014

I have my code here:

VB:
Sub openfiles()Dim Path As String
Dim ExcelFile As String
' Path = GetFolder("C:UsersKinteshDesktop")
Path = "C:UsersKinteshDesktopVBA programmingMaps"
ExcelFile = Dir(Path & "*.xls")

[Code] ....

NextCode:
GetFolder = sitem
Set fldr = Nothing
End Function

My problem is that the code all actually works (including the function and when I use the commented part), but pointing to this one specific directory (the one I'm using right now), literally nothing happens.

Grouping Open / Close Shortcut?

Apr 30, 2013

I know the shortcut for grouping columns in excel is Alt + D + G + G or Shift + Alt + Right Arrow. Is there a shortcut to actually open and close grouped columns (i.e., the equivalent of clicking on the + sign at the top) without using the mouse?

Anyway To Create Shortcut Icon To Open A Specific Worksheet?

Aug 17, 2009

Is there anyway to create a shortcut icon that I can place on my windows Desktop - That when launched will open a workbook to a specific worksheet/tab. Has to be a windows shortcut as the workbook is auto generated eachday and sent to me, so if I add vb code it will not matter as I will get a new workbook the next day thus wiping out the vb code.

The person who compiles it leaves it on a certain tab that I dont need, but is commonly used by other people - so I would like a shortcut to skip that worksheet and take me to the worksheet that I need to use.

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files

Jul 5, 2007

I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.

1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.

2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it

3. Open the file in the associated application

4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file

5. Repeat steps 2-4

DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Close #1

Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
wend
Close #2

I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems

I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.

with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.

I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.

Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only

Feb 8, 2009

I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.

I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?

Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files

Jul 3, 2007

I'm doing the following:

Dim myname As String
myname = Application. GetOpenFilename

I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook.
The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but
I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then
parse off to get just the workbook name.

Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.

Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:

myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")

I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.

Can't Open Files

Aug 2, 2006

I quite often bring spreadsheets home to work on, but in the last few days it seems that any sheet with a macro produces an error message when I try to open it on my home pc.

(Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close) The files are created with excel 2003 and my home version is 2002. Previously this has not been a problem. I can still load versions of the same spreadsheet from a week ago, but not any recent sheets containing macros. Macro security is set to medium - always was.

Is there a setting somewhere that could have inadvertantly been changed that is causing this problem?

Open Bmp Files

Aug 10, 2008

I was trying to read BMP file. But when ever there are NULL char in File Left,Right doesn't work. Does any one have any alternative for this. For Eg. here are first 10 bytes of a BMP file. 42 4D 4E 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 3E

Open [C2].Value For Input As #BMP_Src 'Read BMP As Input File
While EOF(BMP_Src) = 0
Line Input #BMP_Src, sTemp
While Len(sTemp)
ActiveSheet. Cells(iRow, iCol).Value = Left(sTemp, 1) 'Update readed Char
x = Left(sTemp, 1) 'Temp Var to see Char
sTemp = Right(sTemp, Len(sTemp) - 1) 'Remove Updatd Char
iCol = iCol + 1 'Update Col Count
If iCol > 10 Then 'Init Col Count
iCol = 1 '
iRow = iRow + 1 'Inc Row Count
End If
Wend
Wend

In this code after reading 4th Byte Code jump to 10th Byte. because Left, Right consider NULL as endof string. I asked this Question to know if there is any alternative way to read NULL char in VBA.

Why Does Excel Open Some Files As Csv

Dec 16, 2008

I receive excel reports every day. But the last couple of days when downloading the reports I get them as csv. Also older reports I have saved on the hard disk open as csv.

Well, the ones I have saved have are now csv files and I haven't done anything (knowingly) to change them to csv.

Open All Files From A Folder

Aug 4, 2009

I have created a Spreadsheet that does all of the calculations, analysis, graphs, etc. that i need; however every time I wish to use this spreadsheet I need to first open up a spreadsheet with data, copy it and then paste it into the original spreadsheet. While this is not horrible, it is quite tedious to do several thousand times.

Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to create a Macro that would open up all files in a specific folder, then select each one and paste the relevant data into my original spreadsheet. I know this possible for specific files; for example, I have created a Macro that will select files data.xls, dats1.xls, data2.xls, and paste these into the spreadsheet, but I was wondering if there was a way to generalize this so that it will simply open every file regardless of the name or how many files there are in the specific folder.

Open All Files With A Macro

If i have a folder with multiple csv files in it, all with different names can i get a macro to open all these files.

I know that i can if they are always the same name each time i run the macro but what i would like to do is to change the name of the csv files daily.

The reason is because i could have upto 50 different files a day.

So basically i'd like to click a button and open all the contents of the folder regardless of the name of the files inside.

Files Open Automatically

Jul 25, 2007

The background is that I only use macros for a few limited files to save me some time spent on monotonous clicking. Well, yesterday I made three little macros that clear the info in three weekly files and save each with a new date (in preparation for me adding the new info). When I left yesterday, the macros worked as intended. I come in to work this morning, and each of those files now open automatically whenever I open any other file in Excel (just for the first one, nothing happens if I open a second).

Open PDF Files Via Macro

Jul 28, 2007

How can I code a Macro in Excel to search in a preset directory and pull out, aka open/run a certain Adobe Acrobat .pdf file automatically? Is this even possible to code in Excel Macro or is it out of its scope of what Excel VB code can do?

Right now I have a very repetitive task where depending on the value of a certain field in Excel I have to search for the right/corresponding .pdf file and open it up do work in the .pdf as well as the Excel worksheet... I have to do like hundreds of this. So is there a quick way to code in Excel that a certain value will open a certain file named .pdf acrobat file? Can other programs/files be called upon and ran/started/opened from within Excel Macro?

Open Multiple Files

Oct 2, 2007

i have a master file which needs to be updated by several other sourcefiles. I did a macro running from the master file which opens all of the sourcefiles one by one, copies the relevant info from the sourcefile to the masterfile, and closes the sourcefile, then moves to the other one. i know this is probably not the case, but the code below seems to behave randomly: sometimes it works, sometimes it bugs by saying file not found runtime error 1004:

Dim masterfile As String
masterfile = "Master.xls"
Dim sourcefile As String
CurrentWeek = InputBox("Enter current week number")
CountWk = 35
sourcefile = "Source" & CountWk
Workbooks.Open (sourcefile)
....

The last statement causes the error. Both master.xls and source35.xls are in the same folder.

Open Txt Files Delimited, Space

Sep 6, 2008

On a daily basis I open about 35 text files in Excel at one time, and then must responde to 35 dialog boxes:

"This file is not in a recognizable format" - I click OK
"Delimited or Fixed Width (default)" - I change to Delimited
"Delimiters listed with Tab as default" - I change to Space

I go through that 35 times. I don't save these files that I have opened, but once they are all open I paste each one in a separate worksheet in one workbook.

Can I at least change the defaults on these text boxes to Delimited, Space? That way I would just need to click on OK, then Finish for each file.

I am using Excel 2000.
