Directory Names On Different Computers

I have been limited lately to only working on this project at work because I have added a few lines here and there throughout the workbook that make a reference to the directory the file is located in. for example:

Macro To List Folder Names Within A Directory

Nov 26, 2009

i'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.

Changing File Names In A Windows Directory

Nov 23, 2009

Using VBA, can anyone please advise if it is possible to change the name of a large number of files in a directory. I want to get each file name as a string, truncate the first few characters, then change the name to the new filename, all without opening any of the files whose names are to be changed.

Listing Names Of Files In Directory To Excel Worksheet

Aug 1, 2014

I have a music folder on my computer with a TON of music in it. Some folders have sub-folders as well.

I need an easy way to point to a specific folder and pull ALL the names of the files within that folder and all of the sub-folders and put them on an Excel worksheet.

So a brief example...

Main Folder: Now That's What I Call Music
Sub-Folders: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, etc
And within each sub-folder is at least 2 more folders named CD1 and CD2.

I want to pull the name of every song in ALL of these folders into one collective list in Excel.

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day

Oct 9, 2008

I have a directory where our customer service people deposit forms each day. The form is always the same, with a number of columns that need to be copied into a master list. From there they are analyzed, sorted, etc, then exported, so the number of rows in that list varies from day to day as well. Is there some way to have VBA import each file sequentially from a directory if I do not have the exact file names?

I am using this import code from a macro to start with:

Sub importdata()
' importdata Macro
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=Array(Array( _
"ODBC;DSN=Excel Files;DBQ=C:Documents and SettingsMy DocumentsTender Document(1).xls;DefaultDir=C:Documents a" _

Calendar Not Working On All Computers?

Dec 4, 2013

This is a shared worksheet. When I look at it I can manipulate the calendar, but for others it is just a non-interactive image.

I'm sure this has something to do with them not having this control in their computer, but is there a work around?

VBA HTML Not Running On All Computers?

Jul 23, 2014

So I have this code I'm working on for my deptarment that goes to a website inputs data , clicks run and downloads the csv file to the worksheet. It works just fine on my PC and on my profile on the computers the other department uses. We are both using same versions of windows, excel , and IE. When i have someone from the other department run the macro it opens the website but never enters the data into the fields despite the site being the exact same coding as when i'm logged in.


When this code is ran by a member of the other department it just opens the website inputs nothing and doesn't press the RUN button on the website.

What setting or anything. I verified that both PC's VBA references in are there and no "Locations are missing paths" .

Collect Data From Different Computers

Dec 30, 2006

I bought 32 laptops out of my own moeny (used) to get my 5th grade students into the 21st century. I have several programs working on these laptops which output data in text and xls files. I would like to either:

1. Poll the files on each workstation at the end of the day and bring the data into excel (I have worked in VBA). Computers are named Comp01 to Comp33.

2. Better: have the workstations save the files to my NAS device so they are on one hard drive.

I would like to keep it simple (I'm a teacher not a good programmer.) Is the "Import External Data" the way to go for the text files? Can a macro go out and loop through the 32 laptops using that or some other add-in?

Save File To 2 Computers

Mar 6, 2007

I have a timesheet I created in Excel. I want to hit a button and have it save on the current computer. I also want it to copy the file to another computer on our network. I would like it to overwrite the exsisting file on this other computer automatically without a message saying "Do you want to overwrite exsisting file". The other computers dir is \OfficeTimesheet

What code can I write to make this happen?

Copy Protection :: On Different Computers

Jan 28, 2008


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
****'** MsgBox Environ("ComputerName")
****If Environ("ComputerName") UCase("Authorized PC Name") Then
********MsgBox "Sorry No Go!" & vbCrLf & "Wrong computer!"
********'** Do your thing here
********MsgBox "Proceed"
****End If
End Sub

Reading the thread in the link above, It seems as if one could limit access to a workbook. I tried this code on a dummy workbook, I have a few question...

1. Why am I getting "Sorry, No Go. Wrong Computer" when I just put the code in the dummy worksheet for the first time?

2. Can this code be modified to capture my clients computer information to restrict the workbook useage only on one computer and prevent unauthorized distribution to other computers?

3. Can this code run automatically everytime the workbook is open?

Size UserForm For Different Computers

May 14, 2008

I've created a userform that will be used by multiple users. I'm not finished coding it yet but when I tried to work on it on my computer at home it did not look the same as it did at work. I tried it on several other computers and experienced the same problem.

It appears that the inserted company logo is zoomed in and the some of the label text has wrapped and is not visible.

I've attached a screen shot of the form on my work computer and the way it looks on other computers.

Allow Use Of Workbook On Specific Computers Only

Jun 6, 2008

I have a workbook with sensitive company information. I need a way to validate the computer the workbook is being opened on and then close the workbook if it is not a confirmed workstation.

The file is already password protected on opening, each worksheet and the workbook is protected, and the VBA code is protected. We just need to take it one step further.

Is there a way to check a registry entry or the computers MAC address on workbook_open?

I have found code to close the workbook without saving which I would use after a message box stating "You do not have permission to access this file."

If someone has their macro security level set to high or very high, that prevents my code from running. How can I make this work on any computer no matter what their macro settings are?

Excel 2010 :: Print Area Changes On Same File Between 2 Different Computers?

Jun 6, 2013

I have a technician who sits a desk over, has the same brand of computer running the same Windows 7 and the same Excel 2010, but when he opens a particular file the page layout or print area seems to change so that the sheet is partially cut off. All his options appear the same. I can open this file on other computers and it seems to be fine...

I notice that the Margins under Custom Margins are different and this would explain the problem but not why it occurs. It's a file I created and saved and he opened. Why would the margins change? Is this one of the Microsoft cross platform / program deals where if he changes the print set-up or page layout in WORD for example, it changes them in EXCEL?

Protect Excel Files To Open Only On Designated Computers?

Jul 16, 2010

Is it possible to protect an excel file such that it will open up only on designated computers (identified by the computer name or some unique hardware identification like MAC address etc)?I was wondering if the VB editor can be used to do the same.

Let me put my requirement in detail:

I have an excel file "123" created in one computer (named=A). On this computer this file can be opened by anyone.I write a code such a way that, this particular file when copied on to other computers say (B,C & D) would open up as usual. But on computer E or any other computer, it should not open.

I cannot use password protect feature on the file as "n" number of users will be accessing this file on those designated computers. I was finding few of the clients copying the files on their personal drives or email without proper consent.If its possible, I would like to employ the same on few of my word (.doc) files as well.

Comparing Few Network Computers Folders Against Master Computer?

Jan 26, 2014

I've been tasked with writing an excel spreadsheet that will compare A directory from a "Master directory" against another networked computer directory...

Master Directory


So what were trying to do is have the table show us which pc has a file that either

1) Does not show up on the master
2) Matches the master file name but the file size is different
3) Matches the master file name but the time stamp is different (Show if its Newer or Older)
4) Shows up on the master but does not show up on the remote.

The amount of rows will be between 3000 and 5000 .

Application.FileSearch Not Returning Results On Some Pre 2007 Computers

Feb 11, 2008

Found code to find files and return results.. edited to my liking(barely.. i have no VBA knowledge).. it works on the PC I use. This is intended to be on a shared folder across a network for others to use, and it is not returning any results on the other PCs. This computer has Office 2003.. the rest have 2000. I can NOT figure out the problem. I have read in searches that Application.Filesearch is not reliable, but I do not know how to change it to any other type of coding
Attachment 26214

Option Explicit

Sub SrchForMSDS()
Dim i As Long, z As Long, Rw As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim y As Variant
Dim Fil As String, FPath As String
y = Application.InputBox("Search for file(s) named:", "MSDS Search")
If y = False And Not TypeName(y) = "String" Then Exit Sub

VBA Shell Command To A Launch Applications On All Computers (no File Paths)

Apr 14, 2006

The VBA shell command is as follows:

programPath = "C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe" ' works
'programPath = "iexplore.exe" ' does not work
Shell programPath + " " + fileToLaunch, vbNormalFocus

but the drawback is that the invoked program (iexplore.exe, at least in my case) needs to have the FULL PATH to where the program exists = the "C:Program FilesInternet Explorer" which may or may not work on someone elses computer. This hardcoding will not work and is not transportable.

Is there a trick to find where the executing program lives? or launching it without the path?
