Create Automatic Link To Files In Same Folder

Apr 28, 2009

I have two files,

1. Form Templete & 2. Student Data Index. (Both files will be placed in same folder)

About Form Templete : This is a simple form, containing some fields. Fields which i require are Form No., Student's name & Standard.

About Student Data Index : This file is to maintain records.
Each time when I fill form for a new student i will copy paste the form templete file & rename it by form no. (Entered in the Form Templete file, Form No. field)

My question is : Is it possible that whenever i create a new file in the same folder with student's name the required fields in the Student data Index get filled automatically, apart from that the new file created get hyperlinked & when i click on form no. the form for that student gets open?

Excel 2003 :: Extract Variable Rows Of Cells From Files In A Folder To Existing File In Folder

Mar 15, 2013

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".

Formula That Uses Link In A Cell To Create Offset Link

Jun 28, 2013

I have two worksheets, one with detail monthly information and one with YTD information. So let's say the three numbers I want to capture in the YTD sheet are in columns B, G and I on the monthly sheet. January's data might be in B5, G5 and I5. February's data is in B12, G12 and I12 and so on.

On the YTD sheet in cell C2 I link to Monthly!B5 and in C3 I link to Monthly!B12 so cells C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet show the monthly totals from column B on the detail sheet. On the YTD sheet, cells C20 to C31 show the monthly totals from column G on the monthly sheet, so cells G5, G12, etc. And finally, cells C40 to C51 on the YTD sheet show monthly totals form column I on the monthly sheet.

In the past I've always created all these links manually. After creating the links in C2 to C13 on the YTD sheet, is there a way to use a formula in C21 that uses the link in C2 to create a link for G5?

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)?

Automatic Index For Jpg Folder

Mar 28, 2007

I`m trying to create a macro that produces an index of jpgs contained in a folder.
I need also some properties of the file. With these I will create a new naming system and rename existing files. To do part of this I copied from here a macro and adapted it. Copied: i.e. I don`t know much!!!

Problem 1)
Initially it worked, then "Run-time error 53, file not found" started appearing without me being aware of making any changes to the code.

Problem 2)
I would like to capture some of the properties of the files (pics from digital camera). Which jpgs properties can I access to and how?
What about exif data?
Explorer shows 3000x2000 pixels. Can I get this too?

Sub Get_Folder_Contents()
Dim folderstring As String
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
folderstring = ThisWorkbook.Path
f = Dir(CStr(folderstring & "*.jpg"))
n = 2
Do While Len(f) > 0
Cells(n, 1) = folderstring
Cells(n, 2) = f
Dim fs, fl
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")................

Convert All CSV Files In A Folder To Excel Files?

Apr 8, 2014

I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.

One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french

can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:

NO = B
BA = W
RG = R
SO = P
JA = Y
BE = L
VE = GY
GR = G
VI = V
MA = BR
BJ = TA
OR = O

Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.

Link Cell Value (last Four Of SSN) To Folder

Apr 29, 2014

I have a column on a spreadsheet containing the last four (XXXX) or in some cases six (XX-XXXX) if there are duplicates of the last four SSN. I manually enter these as needed. I also create a folder that will be named the last four or six in the same format that is in the excel spreadsheet. Is there a simple way to automate the linking of these cells to the external folders?

Automatic Link Update WITHOUT Prompt When File Opened Not Working (XL2003)

Jul 6, 2006

Despite setting the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt/Don't display the alert and update links" option numerous times, my workbook still prompts me to update links every time I open it. The option seems to be set okay (it is preset whenever I go into the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt" dialog), but it doesn't seem to affect the workbook's startup behaviour. The workbook contains a ComboBox control that is initialized with customer names from another workbook, which is included in the References for this main workbook.

I am using Excel 2003 (from Office Pro 2003) under Windows XP (SP1). I believe this used to work without the prompt when I was working on this app last fall (I'm not sure, as my memory of specific behaviours back that far is fuzzy). However, it has been persistently prompting ever since I started working on this app again this spring/summer. Was there perhaps a bad fix to Office 2003 (that I automatically applied) that broke this feature?

Search Folder For Files Containing "Temp", Delete Files

Jun 26, 2008

Is there a code that will search a pre-determined folder for all .xls files containing the word "Temp", and deleting those files?

Example:
In the root of drive M, I have several Excel files. Anytime one of the original tracking logs is opened, a temp file of that log is automatically created. I would like to automatically search the drive and delete all files containin the word "Temp".

I've attached a picture of the directory tree, in case that will help. The file will always be named "PO Response Tracking - Temp#######.xls", with ###### representing a series of either 5 or 6 numbers.

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.

Merge All Files In A Folder

Dec 21, 2009

I haven't really been able to find a total solution to an issue I have had for a while and hope someone can help.

I have a series of workbooks that I create from Crystal reports, I want to do the following after clicking a button on a form:-Open up two files in a folder with similar names (IL-BA, IL-BA-19), both have the same headers

Open a Third file, this is my 'Master File' and is in a different location, this has the same headers

Copy from the two files onto 1 sheet on my master file (excluding the headers)
Close the first two files without saving and move them to a 'Done' folder
Save and Close the Master File

Move onto the next set of files in the folder (NE - BA,NE - BA - 19) and do the same again, until all the files in the folder have been completed.

All the files in the folder have different data, so have different headers, but the Master file for each set will always have the same headers, (if that makes sense), but they are specifically named, so cycling through the named files in the folder, merging the two together.

My main problem is that I can't seem to find all the code i need, i can merge the two files, either in different sheets(which i don't want), or with the headers for each file still attached (as i can't seem to find a robust way of removing them).

Disable Calculate Formulas That Link To Other Files?

To work with this workbook I need to be able to make faster manual calculations. I have tried many solutions and the only one that seems to work, is to work without the links to the other files (by breaking the links and turning the formulas to values). The problem with this solution is that I can't lose the formulas. I think that must be a way to calculate the sheet without calculating the cells that got a reference to the external files. Only the formulas in the current sheet.

Create An Automatic Pop-up Based On A Condition

Jun 15, 2009

I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. 4 of these worksheets have the same format and have concatenate formulas in cells D14 through D28. What I need is an automatic pop-up message to tell me when I open the file if on any of these 4 worksheets text is generated from the concatenate formula that matches either "air cooling unit", "air heating unit", or "ceiling".

And, if so, I need for the pop-up to state the name of the Worksheet/tab and which of the above text strings match. For example, if one tab is named "6-5-09 C" and within the range of D14:D28 the text "ceiling" is listed, the pop-up should read something like, "Maintenance Needed for ceiling on 6-5-09 C!" If there are multiples on multiple worksheets, then I'd want all of them listed on the same pop-up. Then I would want to be able to click OK or CLOSE to close the pop-up. If I can even color the pop-up a color different than the regular gray, that'd be cool too.
