Determine Date System Of Workbook In Which Macro Resides

Oct 24, 2007

I have written a few macros, which use date type variables. Because VBA uses the 1900 date system, and some workbooks use the 1904 date system, I have to first check and see if a workbook uses the 1904 date system, and if so, subtract off 1462 days where appropriate. My macros used to check the date system by using the command:

If ( ActiveWorkbook.Date1904 = True) Then
nh_stringToDate = nh_stringToDate - 1462
End If

But, sometimes the macro resides in one workbook (call it macro.xls) but the currently active workbook is some other workbook (something.xls). What I really care about is the date system of macro.xls and NOT something.xls. So, instead of "ActiveWorkbook" is there some other object I can use to refer to the workbook in which the macro itself resides? I don't want to rely on using the name of the macro workbook (macro.xls) because this could change! So I need a way to simply refer to the workbook in which the macro resides.

Determine Current Date In Macro

Nov 7, 2006

I'm trying to write a batch file that connects to a database and passes in an SQL query. One of the conditions of this query is the date. I need the batch file to figure out what todays date is and pass that in.

This is what I currently have.

ws_tran_date between to_date( '&datefrom 08:30:00AM', 'DD-MON-YYYY HH:MI:SS AM') and TO_DATE('&dateto 08:30:00am', 'DD-MON-YYYY HH:MI:SS AM')

When I run the batch file, it asks me to input the dates manaully in the format DD-MON-YYYY (eg 7-NOV-2006). I need the batch file to figure this out on it's own.

Is there some function I can call to do this?

Windows System Date, Refer To The Current Date?

Jun 5, 2009

I'm working on a spreadsheet which needs to refer to the current date. My PC checks the system date/time daily. Can I assume that if an end-user regularly connects to the internet, their PC will have a correct system date? Does anyone know if Win2000 or Win98 automatically update the system date/time when connected to the internet?

VBA To Determine If Workbook Is Open

Nov 29, 2013

I cannot cut and paste from my working computer to the internet access computer.

This code is intended to check for a workbook already open and if it contains a particular worksheet. This function is called from a routine that reads a master workbook then opens a PCM workbook. The PCM workbook might already be open.

WB_PCM is declared as a workbook and the name is set. WS_PARAMETERS is declared as a string and its name is set to an existing worksheet. The workbook and worksheet do exist, but are not open.

This is the call to the function:

WS_exists = Is_Workbook_Open( WB_PCM, WS_PARAMETERS_NAME )

And that code is

Public Function Is_Workbook_Open( workbook_ref As Workbook, sheet_name As String) as Boolean
Dim check_sheet as Worksheet
On Error Resume Next
If( workbook_ref Is Nothing ) Then
Is_Workbook_Open = False
Set check_sheet = workbook_ref.Worksheets( sheet_name ) ' < error


During this time the master workbook is open but either not in focus or is minimized within the Excel windows. If I select that worksheet and select a cell in it, then this code runs. What should I do different to get this code to check for WB_PCM being open and being able to handle it when either open or not open.

Determine Last User Of Workbook

Sep 10, 2007

Trying to determine who has a file open, the code below works for simple files. However if the workbook contains macros and user forms it seems there are multiple occurances of the search terms strFlag1, strFlag2. How can I determine the last user

Function LastUser(path As String)
Dim text As String
Dim strFlag1 As String, strflag2 As String
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
strFlag1 = Chr(0) & Chr(0)
strflag2 = Chr(32) & Chr(32)
Open path For Binary As #1
text = Space(LOF(1))
Get 1, , text
Close #1
j = InStr(1, text, strflag2)
i = InStrRev(text, strFlag1, j) + Len(strFlag1)
LastUser = Mid(text, i, j - i)
End Function

Above code taken from Determine Last User

Macro To Format Raw Data From Accounting System

Jun 14, 2013

I export raw data from my accounting system each month that I then format for use in another application that uses the data to produce customer statements. I have attached a file that shows the raw data in the first sheet and the formatted data in the second sheet. I recorded a macro while I did the process but I need to change the code to deal with dynamic data as the number of rows may be different every month.

Here are the steps I go through:
1. Clear the first 3 rows and the last 5 rows
2. Copy the totals in the last row of the data and paste them in the first row
3. Subtotal the different categories in row 2 and add a validity check
4. Add a new column A with a formula to add customer numbers on each line
5. Copy the formulas and paste values over them
6. Filter the data to show blanks under the "Doc Date" column, delete all rows
7. Filter the data to show blanks under the "Type" column, delete all rows
8. Filter the data to show "Total:" under the "Apply No" column, delete all rows
9. Turn off filters, format all numbers in accounting format
10. Check the validation at the top to ensure no transactions were deleted

Macro Slows System By Opening Many Windows

Jan 29, 2007

I've been using the following bit of code to run a macro at the specified time:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Application .OnTime TimeValue("12:00:00"), "GetData"
End Sub

The GetData sub executes a shell script and then pulls data from the result. The problem is that the macro runs 140+ times, and so I get 140 windows popping up and the system practically stops. I can't figure out why this is happening, as there are no loops or any sort of repetition in the code. Any help is greatly appreciated as this problem occurs with more than just the one spreadsheet.

Determine If A File IS A Workbook Before Opening

Aug 6, 2009

Is there anyway I can test / inspect a file before attempting to open it to check that it is indeed an Excel workbook?

I don't want to do it by file extension as that can / will be changed, but rather wondered if there was anyway to examine the ACTUAL file?

I'm wondering if all Excel workbook files start with a particular section of data or anything?

Determine If Shared Workbook Open

Apr 6, 2008

Split from Macro To Insert Rows In Protected Worksheet. I have found this code wgich appears to be very close to what i want. Just to re-iterate -

A) i want to detect if any other user has the shared book open, if yes-display msg and exit - it seems to do this by just adding an appropriate msg box

B) if no - open it and lock other users out by temporarily remving share or allowing them in but as read only - not sure if it does that.

Also not sure if it works for a shared file - cannot test as i do not have access to shared network from location.

Function IsFileOpened(StrFilePath As String) As Integer
Dim FileNum As Integer
'First check filepath exists
If Len(Dir(StrFilePath)) > 0 Then
FileNum = FreeFile()
On Error Resume Next
Open StrFilePath For Input Lock Read As #FileNum ' Open file and lock it.
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
IsFileOpened = 1 'File open
IsFileOpened = 0 'File Closed
End If
Close FileNum
IsFileOpened = 2 'File not found
End If
End Function
