Open/Add New Workbook Macro Code

May 12, 2008

I am trying to write code to open a new (blank) workbook while in an existing workbook (I am then going to pass data between the two which is easy). When I try to record the code to get the syntax for opening a new workbook it will not record any code. I also need to name the new workbook based on text in a cell in the existing workbook. I just saw before posting this that the code;

workbooks.add

will open a new workbook now I just need to name the new workbook based on text in my existing workbook.

Skip Saving The Code Everytime You Open The Workbook

May 8, 2009

I have a workbook with lots of code to automate several things that I do. It does a great job at doing things I need it to do, but it takes foreeeveeerrr to save the workbook. The code has made the workbook a large file, and it takes a few minutes to save it. Is there a way to skip saving the code everytime you open the workbook. I don't ever need to change to code so I don't need to save it every time.

VBA Code To Allow User To Select Range In Another Open Workbook?

Jul 26, 2013

I need the code to allow a user to select a column of their choice in an open workbook of their choice so that data can be lookuped up and changed. I am happy to create the code to do the lookup/changing, however the nearest I have found is the use of an inputbox which is limited to the active spreadsheet only. Some people have said the input box could be used over to another spreadsheet but I have not found that to work.

What I will need returned is the workbook name, sheet name and column. That will allow me to point to that and do the task.

This code could be used by 5 people and those 5 people could be running it on 20 different spreadsheets.

I thought this would be easy to find but it has eluded me. When using Excel normally, if you do a simple lookup formula, or create pivot function, excel prompts the user to select the workbook/sheet.

Object Defined Error When Code In Workbook Open Event

Sep 7, 2007

I have a macro that checks if a username is in a particular list, and if it is, it unhides certain sheets in the workbook.

The code runs fine if I just run it as a macro or off a command button, but I am trying to execute it when the workbook opens and I keep getting a 57121, Application defined or object defined error.

The code is below;

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

DoEvents

Dim Res1 As VbMsgBoxResult
Dim GovRng As Range

For Each GovRng In Sheets("Map").Range("GovernanceMembers")
If GovRng.Value = Application.UserName Then Goto 111
Next GovRng

Exit Sub

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity
cost

1
2
3
4
5
6
7

Make Workbook Open- Open Correct Month Workbook

Jul 8, 2006

I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook

open macro-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim dTime As Date
dTime = Time
If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _
dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then
ImportData
End If
End Sub

This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?

Automatically Open New Workbook After 1st Workbook Open 4 Seconds

Nov 6, 2009

I have a presentation that I open from a short-cut. After the "Welcome Page" is opened, I want to open a second workbook in a new instance of Excel after 4 seconds.

I think that I can open the new instance of excel, but I don't know how to activate the macro after 4 seconds.

I'm sure there is a function someplace for this that can be used in a macro.

Then, after the second Workbook is opened, I want the Welcome Page "Workbook" closed, leaving the second Worbook open.

Sep 27, 2006

I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code Im using for tranfering the sheet

Sub Transfer_Sluttet()
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2")
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

Refresh All Queries On Workbook Open When Finished Print To PDF Then Close Workbook

Jan 23, 2014

I have data that daily needs to be refreshed and printed to pdf.

I figure the simplest way to do this would be to task schedule the workbook to open daily. Then on open it will refresh the data, print it after all data has been refreshed and close the workbook.

I set it up originally without the need to print so I have all the queries set to refresh when opening the file, however when I now try and put the code to print to pdf on the workbook open event it runs before the queries are finished running. (Query notes: queries were created through Microsoft query, and are accessing a MySQL database queries set to refresh when opening the file queries set to enable background refresh).

Modify Existing Macro To Copy To Different Workbook Instead Of Open Workbook?

Dec 7, 2012

Here's my macro:

Code:
Sub CopyRow()'
'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied.
'
Dim cCell As Range
Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1)
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Rows("2:2").Select

[Code] .....

Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.

If-sequence To Not Open Workbook If Already Open

Jul 5, 2006

This is pretty basic I just don't know what command to use. I have a macro that's supposed to copy data from one workbook to another, it works fine but In the macro it open the other workbook then closes it. I would like the macro to not reopen the second workbook if it is already open (since reopening causes it to lose the newly updated info). I think it can be done with a If command but I don't know which tried the following: If workbooks("M:/database") Is Open but of course 'is open' doesn't work, but can anyone tell me what to use instead.
