Create PDF File From Word Doc Inside A Folder With ID And Ref Number From Cells In Excel
Jul 31, 2014
I have an excel database where I register cases. I have in it a button that creates a folder with and ID nr that is in column A (I create new ID nr in the next row, when I press the button it will create a folder with that ID nr and inserts a blank word document in it). We have a template that we copy to the folder (depending what type of case). The idea would be that once the template is filled in and ready to print, It would take the values from the ID nr and a reference number a few cells to the right. Is it possible to tell excel to open the word document in the folder and create a PDF version with the ID nr and reference number. (there are only 2 templates, so the macro would have to look for one of the two in the folder)
The name of the templates are: "Standard" and "Other".
I guess the best way to start maybe this would be that I select the cell with the ID nr and then press a macro button to have this done.
One thing that needs to be done, is to put a copy in the same folder and another in a second folder called "Binder" in my documents folder.

I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
At the end of the process of client meetings and revisions, we must generate an MS Word-formatted report. I've written a macro to parse the comments and columns and generate a mostly-formatted Word document. What's missing are the corporate headers, footers, logos -- the standard template or basic document stuff that all of the details would fill in. For now, I auto-gen a Word document and merge it by hand into the corporate template.
So my question is: if I want to "include" a corporate Word template with the spreadsheet, can I bundle it with the workbook somehow or must it always remain a separate file?
My current thinking is that since a *.xlsm file is really a ZIP file underneath, could I store the Word template there where it would effectively be hidden from the user? Or what is the best way to bundle an extra file like this with my workbook app?
As you can see in the attached file, I have a column of classes , a columns of related revenues and the total for each class. I have to create a column, next to these, where I can create the percentage with respect the sum of each class (as you can see by the formula). My problem is I am not able to say vba to find the totals and to create the percentage just with the revenues related to that total.
I have the following code that will open each file in a folder and run code on it. I'm trying to write code that will create a pivot table on each of the opned files...but cannot get past opening the file...
So I had built the vba code into a specific workbook so I could just drop that workbook into any folder I wanted to run code on files to and depending on the name of the file it would run different type of code. The problem has something to do with using "activesheet" for the pivot table wizard. It just doesn't like it and gives me a application 1004 error.
any way I can modify the activesheet so it will make a pivot of the newly opened file? I think what it is trying to do is make a pivot of the blank workbook that the code resides in
Sub filelooper() MyDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path ' current path Dim MyFile As String
I want to create a macro that will create a new folder called "Fungicide Quotes" under my documents and will save the workbook using the cell reference d4:f4 for the file name, which are merged cells. I have tried the following but can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
Dim strFilename, strDirname, strPathname, strDefpath As String On Error Resume Next strDirname = "Fungicide Quotes"
strFilename = Range("d4:f4").Value strDefpath = "C:My Documents" If IsEmpty(Filename) Then Exit Sub
I want this filecopy to: 1. create a new folder in a subfolder called "/certificates". 2. name that folder the current date. ie. "/certificates/23.11.11". 3. copy the file into that folder. 4. If it's a duplicate then rename the file " - 2" or what ever the next number is.
Code: Private Sub CommandButton2_Click() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.DisplayAlerts = False
I have an Excel sheet with a long list of data. A short example is shown below:
Section | Title | Item 1 | INTRODUCTION | a 1.1 | title2 | b 1.2 | title3 | c 1.2.1 | title4 | d 1.2.2 | title5 | e
I made a VBA macro in Excel that runs through this list and creates a new Word file for each item. The filename of the document is based on the data in the Excel file (section and title). Now I would like to add a custom property to each of the newly created Word files, i.e. the value in the 'item' column. Does anyone of you know how I should do this? Or should it be better if I write a macro in Word that runs through the Excel data to create the word files? Here is the code I use to generate the word files:
I currently use the following code to create a duplicate file based on two cells within a directory and folder i specify. These cells consist of the team and week commencing date (mondays date of week which is cell 'Main Menu'!K8)
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:
has the following files: Untitled.xls - read only abc-09-001.xls abc-09-002.xls abc-09-003.xls abc-09-004.xls
Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).
I need to activsheet create in .pdf witch i did with this
VB: Sub Save_As() ' macro za snimanje racuna u PDF pomocu Microsoftovog ugradjenog alata za Office 2010 Dim txtName As String txtName = "D: eports" & Range("G14") & "_" & Range("L3") & "_" & Range("E18") 'ime nove datoteke i folder u koji se snima ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _ Type:=xlTypePDF, _ filename:=txtName, _ OpenAfterPublish:=False End Sub
and for that pdf file i need to create folder based on cell e.g. q1 and sub folder l3 and all that in case that they dont exist and if they are just put file in it. For example i fill out sheet (one of many in one day) and i click buton and sheet go to pdf in subfolder L3 in folder Q3.
Just striving to have this kind of "picture arrangement's macro" to work, macro that whenever you choose a certain cell and operate it on hotkey it'll:
1. Create a new folder named "PicturesAuto" beside the excel file (wherever the excel file located).
2. Inside folder "picturesAuto it'll create a new subfolder named by the same name of the sheet related to that cell you operated the macro upon. (let's say this cell placed on sheet named: "happysheet"- that'll be the name of the subfolder created.)
3. Inside the subfolder "happysheet" it'll create a new subfolder named by the text of the cell you activated the macro upon (let's say you initially operated the macro on B5 cell -which has the text "montana" so it'll create "montana" subfolder also inside subfolder "happysheet")
4. Lastly instead of having only the text "montana" in "B5 cell" like we had initially before activating the macro, the macro'll also add to that text "montana" the link to "montana" folder (path of excel file->picturesAuto->happysheet->montana)
The way I'm planning to use this is to add a lot of HR pictures inside those folders created by the macro that related to that specific sheet, and that specific cell I've activated the macro upon. Plus just having those pictures so organized is just outstanding in every scale, and the excel file will keep running smoothly without any resource consuming overload.
The purpose of this endeavour is to create a cell that when the user clicks on it, it will open up a Word file that THAT particular cell represents.
FIRST STEP: Take the values from Column D (Tract Number), then add a ".doc" extension to it, then put the UNC filepath (\serverdata eports) in front of all of that and put it in Column E. See me example below:
File path plus Tract Number plus Extension
\serverdata eports 7-5-065-085 .doc
.... to generate something like this: \serverdata eports7-5-065-085.doc
SECOND STEP: Use the value (only when the user clicks on the hyperlink) from the cell in Column E and start up Word.
I have a folder that has multiple files that i would like to pull data from. This data is in the same cell in each file so all i would like to do is add the total value up at the end once it finished looping through all the files and display it on my sheet. Some of these files could have 1 worksheet where others might have 3-4. If I only have 1 file in the folder it works perfectly fine but as soon as the second file opens i get a Subscript Out of Range error (See code below for the line this error occurs on).
I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.
I am trying to copy a file, rename it, and save it to a new folder. I keep getting a "Compile Error ; Syntax Error" at line FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName). I am using Excel 2010.
FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName)Sub RenameFiles() 'Renames file based on "sheet 1" - Column 1 Old file name - Column 2 New file name Dim oldName As String Dim myfile As String Dim newName As String Dim ImagePath As String Dim NewPath As String
