Copy Most Recent File To Another Directory

Sep 11, 2009

I've got this code that will copy data into my worksheet from the most recent .IRP file generated on my C:/ drive. Along with copying the data to my worksheet, I'd like to have a copy of the IRP file copied to a folder on my L:/Drive.

In the code section I've commented out the code that allows the data from the most recent file to be copied to my worksheet. I found code that supposedly will copy a file to a new directory. I want to combine this into my code to allow both to happen. Here's my attempt.

File Copy Macro - With Directory Specified In Workbook Cell

Feb 23, 2010

I am continuing to struggle with my first attempt at a macro, and wonder if someone would mind taking a look to see where I have gone wrong? All I am trying to do is create file copying tool where the user can define the source and destination directory in workbook cells, and assign the macro to a button to complete the copy of all files from source to destination.

The macros do this:

Source and Location directory defined in Sub Archive1.
These are passed to file copy macro Sub ArchiveScript.
This macro checks for presence of destination directory, ensures that the directory backslash is in place, specfies the variables fn and fn2 to make sure the filecopy command copies all files in the directory, and then carries out the filecopy function itself.

However, I am getting two errors from the code that I can't figure out (I am still very much a beginner!)

- Invalid procedure call or element on fn = dir() at the bottom

- The copy still works, but only seems to copy one file from the source to the destination, and not all of them.

Search For Most Recent File In Folder. 2007

Jan 22, 2008

I am using Excel 2007 so I CANNOT use application.filesearch.

With that said, I need to change one of my old macros that searched for the newest file within a specified folder, and then display the name of that file in a message box that gives the person an option of opening the file. I've read too many workarounds for application.filesearch and I'm not sure how to combine them all into something I can use.

Normally I have a bit of code to start with, but this one has me so baffled I don't know where to start.

Excel / VBA / Outlook Integration - Attach Most Recent File

Jun 21, 2013

I am trying to create a script for a manually morning process that I need to complete that entials downloading a number of .PDF files and sending them out to a distribution list. I am unable to automate that actual saving of the files onto the network drive, but I believe I can automate the process of attaching them to the email. I have run across some problems so far though, this is what I have been able to come up with. After doing a bit of research it seems as though using cmd would be the best way to locate and attach the file but I am still unable to get it to run properly:

Sub AttachMultiple()
With CreateObject("Outlook.Application").CreateItem(0)
.To = ""
.Subject = "Test"
.Attachments.Add Split(CreateObject("").exec("cmd /c Dir 'G:Client ReportingMGIDaily
ReportsAGFAJune 2013*.pdf' /b /o-d").stdout.readall, vbCrLf)(0)
End With
End Sub

Here is an example of a folder I will be trying to pull the most recent saved PDF from, there are about 10 similar folders:

I feel like I am relatively close to completely this, my cmd syntax may just be a little off.

All the necessary invoices have been scanned in as pdf's in folder Y:FinanceSalesInvoices.

The question is, can a code be written to say in column Z, that a hyperlink be created to that particular invoice. For example, in cell I2, it would have Invoice1, then in cell Z2, it would have a hyperlink of Y:FinanceSalesInvoicesInvoice1.pdf.

Extract Newest File From Directory

Jul 21, 2008

I have an excel spreadsheet that has a list of pathways to different folders (ex. Q:TechnicalY001) in each row. I want a macro that will search each of the folders I list in a range of cells and return the most recent file by the Date in the filename:

Example: Cell A1 contains folder path Q:TechnicalY001
Cell A2 contains folder path Q:TechnicalY002

The macro would return the most recent file in Y001 and dump the filename into cell B1. Then it would return the most recent file in Y002 and dump the filename into B2.

After I have all of the most recent filenames, I want to be able to search each of those files for data in certain cells and then dump that data into the spreadsheet. The cells are always going to be the same in each file.

Macro To Erase File On A Directory

Mar 9, 2013

The code bellow allows me to save a copy of the invoice by way of doPDF using invoice number as the name of the pdf to be saved.


Application.ActivePrinter = "doPDF v7 on DOP7:" 'Selects doPDF to genarate PDF file of invoice.
ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= "E:LusaGenerated InvoicesINV" & Range("L17").Text & ".pdf", _


As there is the need to, should a quotation or an invoice be wrong, to change it. In other words I have code to cancel the invoice as bellow.


Dim sResponse As String
Dim rFound As Range
sResponse = InputBox("Enter record you want to change." & vbNewLine _& "ATTENTION!

This will change the current record number and will erase record data from saved records sheet.")

If sResponse = "" Then --cancelled or OK with no entry: do nothing or add message
Set rFound = Sheet1.Columns("L").Find(What:=sResponse, LookIn:=xlValues,


The code above simply removes a line on sheet1 to which yet another macro retrieved some info from an invoice such as date, invoice, customer and total.

Now I just realized that when I change an invoice, I will be again when finished, creating another pdf file that already exists.

How can I have the second macro here changed so that it will go to ""E:LusaGenerated InvoicesINV" & Range("L17").Text & ".pdf", _" and delete this pdf file?

List All Files In Directory In An Excel File

Apr 2, 2009

In my search I found several example similar to what I need, but nothing I could adapt to filt my needs, (at least not wim my limited skills).

Here what I need to do:

I have multilple Excel files in a directory. (M:/Archived PO Responses/Domestic). On a daily basis, these files are processed via VBA, and deleted after processing. What I need to do is, prior to processing and deleting these files, create an ongoing log of the filenames in that directory.


The macro would open an Excel file named "Processed Orders.xls", which is stored on the network drive "M:". It would then append all of the filenames in the directory mentioned above to a sheet named "Processed Orders" in that workbook, below any filenames that already exist.
