ActiveX Combobox - Linked Cell Reference Lost After Save / Close And Re-open Workbook

Feb 11, 2013

Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.

Slicer Connections Lost When Copying To New Workbook

Jun 12, 2014

The main objective of the code is to create different workbooks that are going to be send to different people(with only their data).

I am using the filter to delete the data that I don't need and then create a new workbook, save it and close it. This has been working fine.

The issue is that I have two slicers in the 'DistMenu' sheet. When I open again the newest workbook, they slicers are disconnected to the pivot tables. This can be fix manually by selecting the slicers --> PivotTables Connections etc

I use the macro recording to get a code and work from there, but is giving me error '1004' "Unable to get the PivotTables property of the Worksheet class".

Keep UserForm Linked To Particular Workbook Even If Focus Is Lost

Jan 19, 2010

I have an excel program that uses a modeless userform. often times i will open other spreadsheets while the form is active or minimized. if i return to the form and run it without manually bringing focus to the appropriate workbook, i get an error because it references the wrong workbook. is there a way to keep that form tied to that workbook no matter what? also, it is important that this procedure works despite the workbook name changing.

Macro Is Closing Wrong Workbook Before Going To The Next Workbook

Aug 12, 2009

I run most of my macros out of a file called "Personal.XLS" and I have this bit of code at the end of this particular macro which is closing personal.xls instead of the active file it is working on. It is set up on a loop and it should go to the next file in the directory but since it closes the file I run the macro from, the macro stops immediately. It appears that it believes "ThisWorkbook.Close" is referring to the file from which the macro is initiated.

Closing Workbook At The End

Aug 22, 2012

I have a perfectly functioning piece of code. There is still one snag, however. In the process of running the macro, three new workbooks are opened. I would like to close all three of those workbooks at the end. I am using the following procedure for each of the sheets:

To open the worksheet

Dim wb As WorkbookMsgBox "Please select the Stakeholder File"SHFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Files (*.xls),*.xls", , "Please select the Stakeholder Workbook")If SHFile "False" Then Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=SHFile)

To close the worksheet at the end:

If Not wb is Nothing Then wb.Close SaveChanges:=False

The only problem is that I am getting bugs when closing multiple workbooks (3). I have assigned the names wb, vb and ab to the three workbooks.

Before Closing The Workbook

Apr 19, 2006

I have some VBA code which opens another workbook, copies data from the first sheet in there and pastes into the current sheet before closing the workbook it got the data from. Is there any way of suppressing any messages associated with closing the other workbook? i.e. do you want to save - or possibly automatically generating a no message to the prompts?

Reminder When Closing A Workbook

Jan 11, 2007

I have 4 employees who at the end of their shifts have to email me an excel workbook. The issue is that some of them are forgetful and after placing numerous post-it notes on their monitors one particular employees just forgets.

What i want to do if possible is that when the workbook gets closed, a pop-up window shows up on their screen reminding them to send the workbook. Even better would be if their was a button that they could click that would email the workbook as an attachment in the pop-up box.

Closing A Workbook Created?

Mar 25, 2014

I've created a macro which copies the current tab to a new workbook (Book X):


I then manipulate the copied data in Book X. Once this is done I move the manipulated sheet back into original file

The problem i'm having is I'd like to close the newly created Workbook X file once the macro has run but Workbook X is usually called Book2, Book4, Book7, Book32 etc.

Workbook X will always be the previous file if i use the ALT TAB shortcut.

From Userform / Other Workbook Not Closing

Nov 26, 2013

I wrote this macro where, from a userform, I click a button and it will fillout another form with certain data from the original WB to a different WB.

All is working fine and exactly the way I want it except, it won't close and save the other sheet. It will go back to the userform, as I want it to, but it will leave the other file in the background open.

This is the code:

Private Sub CommandButton6_Click()
'Allocation file fill out
Dim alloc As String
Dim allwb As Workbook
Dim ABA As Workbook
Dim Prompt As String
'Dim fd As FileDialog
Set ABA = ThisWorkbook

Closing A Workbook That Is Open Via VBA

Jul 2, 2008

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.

Closing The Workbook & Saving Automatically

Jan 25, 2008

I have my Excel workbook open & have made changes. Now I close it and Excel prompts me if I want to save the changes. Is there a way to just close the workbook and automatically accept any changes without have the "Do you want to save changes" message appear?

What about if it is opened in read-only mode? Typically the workbook will not save any changes unless you save it off as another file name. If there is a solution to my question above, can it be enabled only when the workbook is opened in edit mode, or will it not auto-save changes over the file because Excel knows it was opened in read-only mode?

Prevent Closing Of One Workbook When Two Are Open

Sep 23, 2009

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)

Before Close Not Working On Closing Workbook

Sep 29, 2009

I am hoping someone can help. I am new to writing macros and have the following in the this workbook page. When opening the macro does exactly what I want and expect, but does not do the "before close" part. 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....

Workbook Automatically Opens After Closing

Jan 6, 2010

I have a workbook on a share drive that is used by multiple people. In the event that someone leaves the workbook open after using it, I have a timer function that pops up a splash screen after 4 minutes of inactivity which states, "This workbook will close in 1 minute if there is no further activity". If there is no further activity in that minute, the workbook closes.

The code works fine...unless the workbook is manually closed in that minute between the splash screen and when the timer would have closed the workbook. If that happens, the workbook closes normally and then briefly reopens and closes a minute later when the timer would have closed the workbook. Is there any code to prevent this?

Script Works But Not After Closing Out Of The Workbook

Feb 26, 2009

I have a workbook setup with 4 sheets that I'm using. I need the 4 sheets to type in all caps when I enter the data. I found a script, and followed the directions. It works great, yet when I close out of the workbook, and open it back up, the script doesn't work anymore. I go to check the 'view code', and it still there. I resave it, and try it again, and it still doesn't work, what am I missing? This is all new to me. I am saving it as a Workbook Macro enabled file type.

Once I get this resolved, is there a way to make it default to use the script everytime I open the workbook?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Or Target.HasFormula Then Exit Sub
On Error Resume Next
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B3:O210")) Is Nothing Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Target = UCase(Target)
Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

Closing Workbook Runs BeforeClose VBA Twice

Sep 11, 2009

In the various codes I am using AutoOpen, AutoClose, Workbook_BeforeClose and Workbook_BeforeSave Subs. BeforeClose and BeforeSave are in '_ThisWorkbook'; AutoOpen and AutoClose are in a Module. I also use Workbook_Open, Workbook_Activate and Workbook_Deactivate, also in _ThisWorkbook. I put message boxes thru out code to be sure code was running right. The Workbook_BeforeClose is running twice under certain condition (when a cell in active workbook sheet is blank ("")). I do not understand why it is running twice.

For condition where there is data in cell M10, this creates a whole other issue ( multiple running of mutliple various Subs) which I believe I should deal with in different thread/question.

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)

MsgBox "Test-Before close"
If Range("M10") <> "" Then
Dim PanelName As String
PanelName = Range("M10").Text

Closing The Workbook From A Dialog Control

Jun 28, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that automatically opens a dialog box when the workbook is opened. This is a little disclaimer intended for other users of the spreadsheet, which if they click ok it simply closes the dialog sheet, but if they click cancel I want it to kick them out of the Workbook without asking them to save changes. I only want it to close that specific workbook incase they have others open that they haven't saved, etc.

The dialog box is opened as follows:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
DialogSheets("Splash Screen").Show
End Sub

The code I have tried for the closing of the workbook is done by assigning the following macro to the cancel button (note, all but one of the sheets in my workbook is hidden and protected, including the dialog sheet):

Sub Splash_Close()
ThisWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False
'Also tried ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False
'Application.Quit (This closes all excel documents)
End Sub

I know there is something I am missing, keeping in mind I am quite experienced with excel, but relatively new to macros and VB programming.

Just a bit extra on this problem. I am creating the file as a template *.xlt, and the error I get when trying to run the example macro I gave at the start is a 1004 error Method close of object _workbook failed.

Also, in an ineresting (baffling for me at the moment) twist is that once you hit end on the error and it just goes to the first page of your spreadsheet, you can then go to ToolsMacros and run the macro from there, and it closes the workbook exactly the way I want it to!

Automatically Closing One Workbook When Another Closes

Jul 22, 2006

I have a central workbook that relies on data from other workbooks during the various calculations. I am trying to write some code so that when a user closes the central workbook, all of the other workbooks close as well. I have added my code to the thisWorkbook code, but this does not seem to work. Here is an example of the code. The object is to look for a workbook called Import_Sheet5 and to close it if it is open.

Private Sub Workbook_Close()
Dim Wb As Workbook
Dim sSought As String
sSought = UCase(wbName)
For Each Wb In Application.Workbooks
If wbName = Import_Sheet5 And InStr(Wb. Name, wbName) Then
Wb.Close SaveChanges:=False
End If
