Date Function- Open A File, Make An Exact Copy And Save It Under A New File Name

Jun 4, 2009

I'm working on the following

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"D:CommondataIBMmainBRANCHBURG-PRODUCTS-BOM-ALUMINUM-UPDATE-" & Ucase(Format(DateAdd("y", 0, Date)), "YYYY-MM-DD")&".XLS"
ChDir "D:CommondataIBMmain"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

Date: 2009-06-03

Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html

Feb 16, 2010

I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:

- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)

- Copy paste as values

- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)

- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)

- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file

My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.

Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.

I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.

Copy Into New Workbook & Save With Date In File Name

Aug 7, 2008

I have a report which I have written a macro to reformat, I then want to copy the sheet (Remake) containing the report into a new workbook as the only sheet in the new workbook. I want the sheet name to be changed from "Remake" to "Duty to Consider" and I want the new workbook to save itself automatically as "Duty to Consider - Month/Year" - in this case it would be "Duty to Consider - August 2008".

I think that a Pop Up box which lets me input the Month and Year of the report I am working on would be useful in naming the new workbook, if this box popped up when I click the button which runs my Macro that'd be great. Here is the code I am using to reformat my report. This works fine I just need the changes I mentioned. Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'this will turn on screen updating, making the macro run faster

'This will select the DTC Tab and remove rows 1-4
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

'This will add a filter to the data to remove duplicate rows
Range("A1:J1307").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, Unique:=True

'This will copy the data on the DTC tab and copy it into the Remake Tab

Copy A Sheet Into A New Book And Save File Name As The Current Date

Jul 5, 2009

I have an excel file which I use when I book keep journals in work. Each time I come across a new piece of bookkeeping I add to the file, name the sheet and index it. (I've attached a loose example for illustration) so the bookkeeping template.xls gets bigger every day.

Currently, when I book keep on a particular day, I open the template.xls workbook;

draft my journals;

and then manually copy the worksheets I have completed during the day from the template.xls workbook and paste the sheets into a new book and save the days bookkeeping as the current date.

With the file I have attached can someone show me how to write a macro and apply it to each of the buttons on the various work sheet tabs (each button will run the same macro).

Upon clicking a button, I would like the macro to;

Copy the active sheet into a new book and save the file as the current date.

Each subsequent click of a button the macro will check if the .xls file exists for the current date, if it does, then it will just copy the active worksheet to the file that has already been created.

In the new file which is saved as the current date, I need to remove the macro button and the hyperlink that reads back to index.

I have had some helpful macro's provided from another forum, however, the other forum does not appear to enable users to upload files, so I can't quite convey what it is I am trying to achieve.

Open .xls File From .bat DOS File & Save As .csv

Aug 27, 2009

What I would like to do is to open an excel workbook from a bat file in dos with one arguement.

so something like

start c:lacklist.xls 2315t

Once the blacklist.xls is opened I would like to have the macro to save the excel file as a csv file ignoring all the prompts and use the argurement 2315t as the directory to save it to on the j drive ie save to j:2315tlacklist.csv. Then close the workbook and continue with the rest of the commands in the bat file.

I'm guessing I have to use GetCommandLineA to read in the arguement but I can't find anything on the net that gives a clear explanation of how to use it.

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

Apr 24, 2014

I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls

Example: statistics_20140423_142754.xls

Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

The format of B5 looks like - 13/08/2014 16:39

The file path has folders for each year in format "yyyy" with each year having sub folders for each month in format "mm".

The file name is just the date only and is formatted "" e.g. 13.08.14

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Weird File Open/Save As Behavior

Dec 12, 2005

A client of ours has one particular file that has some very strange behavior as described below. This only occurs with the one particular file and the behavior is consistent across different PC's in both their office and ours. All other Excel files in both offices work fine. Here's what happens:

- you can use Windows Explorer to copy the file between drives without
a problem (as expected)

- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then save it back to that
same drive with either the same file name or a different file name, the
file works fine (as expected)

- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then do a "Save As" to
save it to a *different* drive with either the same file name or a
different file name (in default .xls format), the new file causes
errors in Excel every time you open it as per below (weird!)

- even if you do a "Save As" and choose a different format eg Excel
97-2003 or Excel 95, the error behavior is consistent (weird!).............

Open Text File Into Worksheet & Save As .xls

May 14, 2008

I have a folder that has a bunch of text files in it with numeric names (they are store numbers 2, 3, 165, 188, etc...). I need to open those files (in excel), run a macro on them (this portion of the macro has already been created), and then save them with the same name as the txt file but in an xls format and close. It would be great to have the whole folder process automatically but I am willing to start small. Further, I'd like it to not ask for a filename, and I don't want to see the SaveAs dialog box. So far I have been able to get the macro to run through the my processing of the text file all the way to the SaveAs portion, but the code in my macro opens the SaveAs box and puts the filename of the txt file in the file name box in quotes with the txt extension. Below is the code.

Sub Macro3()
sFile = Application. GetOpenFilename( _
fileFilter:="Text Files (*.txt), *.txt", FilterIndex:=1, _
Title:="Open Workbook")
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
sFile, Origin:= _
xlWindows, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:= Array(Array(0, _
1), Array(5, 1), Array(26, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(39, 1), Array(46, 1), Array(51, 1), Array _
(58, 1), Array(75, 1), Array(87, 1), Array(91, 1), Array(97, 1), Array(99, 1), Array(111, 1) _.....................

Excel 2010 :: Save Open File Location?

I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.

In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.

Large File Takes Long Time To Open/Save

May 19, 2008

I have a large Excel 2007 file, around 60.000KB. 54.000KB are due to one of the worksheets where I have 8760rows x 160columns with data. The calculation time is not a problem, it is very fast, it only takes 2/3 seconds. The problem is when I open or save the file, it takes around 2 minutes... it is not too much, but it becomes too long when one has to open and save it several times. It there any trick to decrease the time when openning or saving an excel file??

Possible To Use VLookup Function To Open Specific File

Oct 11, 2012

I am naming raw data files by the date of the data in the file. In another file I am using sumif and sumifs formulas to consolidate the data and organizing it by date, later to copy and paste special to keep the cleaned orgaized data in one spreadsheet. I would like to be able to reference a date and have excel open the appropriate file (named by the date) and then execute the sumif and sumifs formulas. If this is possible I can have the spreadsheet pull in all sorts of historical data all at once and I won't have to worry about copy paste special.

Open File By Date

Nov 19, 2004

Probably not possible but can you write a macro to load a file which has a file name which always starts with Act2July followed by the date

i.e. Act2July191104.xls

but next friday it will be called Act2July261104.xls

This file is created by the network.

So can the macro pick up the Act2July part of the file name and then select the file dependent on when it was saved, so that the latest update is always loaded.

Save A File With A Date Taken From A Cell

Jan 26, 2007

Is it possible to save a file with a date taken from a cell? For example:

I have an Excel file opened, in the cell A1 there is a date: 12.04.2003 (or any other date format). I want an Excel to save this document, but after I check the date of creation (modification) of the file under Windows, I want to receive the result 12.04.2004 (or any other, that was in the cell "A1" before pressing SAVE button).

I imagine, that there would have to be some external script running, that would change the system date for a moment, just after detection of pressing SAVE command.
