Disable Access To Excel Backup File In VBA?

Oct 7, 2011

Is there some sort of vba code that will stop excel from creating a backup copy of the export file from access?

XLApp.ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=True

This code saves and closes the workbook, but it then creates a backup copy. I would like to enter some code so it stops making a backup file.

Exporting Excel File To Access Via ADO?

Feb 14, 2012

I have about 180 Excel files (each one with 51 columns and around 30,000 rows) that need to be exported to an Access table.I'm using the routine below which is extremely time-consuming. I'm sure there is a better way to export an excel file to an Access table.

Sub ExportHistData()
Dim rst As Object
Dim cn As Object
Dim i As Long
Dim lstCell As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lstCell = [a65536].End(xlUp).Row
If lstCell = 1 Then Exit Sub

Updating Access Database With Excel File

Jan 24, 2014

I've been trying to make this work for hours and hours and am finally giving up. Most of this code was found on the internet and I've attempted to make it work for my project but I keep getting errors. I use VBA with Excel quite often but never with Access before. Currently I am getting an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error at rs.Findfirst.

I have an excel worksheet that mimics the access table with five fields, an ID field, lastName, FirstName, DeptID (int), Email. I want to search the Access table for a match on the email field, and if it doesn't find the match, to add a new record using values typed into the excel sheet.

Sub UpdateDB()
Dim cn As Object
Dim rs As Object

Format Text File For Excel To Import Into Access

Jan 12, 2010

I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.

First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.

I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access

Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.

Disable Middle-mouse-click Scroll On Inherited Excel File

May 7, 2014

I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.

I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.

Make Auto Backup File When Opening

Apr 10, 2012

I want to make a macro that will generate a backup copy each time the Excel file is opened. I premade a backup and recorded the following macro, placing it in the sub here:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ChDir "C:Usersmy.selfDesktop"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Usersmy.selfDesktopDaily Backup.xlsm", _
FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled,_ CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

names have been changed to protect the innocent. But now either putting in to repoen the original working excel or manually opening it puts me in an infinite loop of backing up. The probelm seems to be that to make a copy it is making the open workbook the backup. So two part question here:

1. Can I make a copy under the same name automatically when the file is opened while staying in the current one?
Example: open the Excel file "Working Copy", which makes a mirror file called "Backup Copy", but stay in "Working Copy".

2. From what I did manage to do, I notice every time it asks if I want to overwrite. I chose "Yes" when recording the macro but this doesn't seem to get captured. can I make it automatically yes without being asked?

Macro To Create Automatic Backup Of File

Oct 27, 2013

Is it possible to create a macro that automatically saves a backup of the excel document in another desired location?

I have this formula:

Sub backupbutton()
Dim fname
fname = "D:" & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname
End Sub

But that just keeps on making multiple copies of the file rather than overwriting the backup in the D: location.

Also, that particular macro requires me to have to click on a button in order for it to work but I would prefer that it happens automatically when the original file is saved.

File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

Feb 10, 2014

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Disable User Access To Master Sheet Through Doubleclicking Locked Linked Cell

Feb 23, 2010

I have a master spreadsheet that houses most of the information that remains in my control, and several other user spreadsheets that update cells from that master through links.

I am having some problems lately with users doubleclicking the locked linked cells in their workbooks, and excel then wanting to open and give the user access to my master spreadsheet. Is there a way to disable this feature? I would like it to not even acknowledge the action if that's even possible because it confuses them as to why they are getting a prompt to open another document.

Remove Macro From Backup Excel Document

Oct 28, 2013

I have this macro currently running on an original excel document

Private Sub Workbook_Open()Dim fname
fname = "C:ackupEconomics Tracker - " & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm AM/PM") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs Filename:=fname
End Sub

Which creates a backup of the document each time the document is opened; I was wondering, is it possible to remove that particular macro from the backup as opposed to saving the backup as .xlsx? I don't want to be able to open a backup and the backup makes a backup

That particular macro is running on the main workbook.

Excel 2007 :: Stop Links Changing When Use SaveAs To Create Backup?

Sep 25, 2013

I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database

When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.

Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?

Disable Red X But Keep Enable File - Close Working

Dec 24, 2008

I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below)
I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.

The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.

Remove/Disable Open File As Read Only Option

Apr 9, 2008

Is there a way to remove the option to open a file as read only when the file is already open by another user? Ideally when a user tries to open a file that is already in use they would get a message to that effect and the only option at that point would be for them to select "notify" when file is available.

File Linked To Access Database

Jul 10, 2009

I have created a 'price list' database in ACCESS. Then in EXCEL I created a pivot table which retrieves data from one of the database queries (the query was saved as a .dqy file).

I emailed the file containing the pivot table to a colleague who is on the same server. He saved the excel file on he desktop & renamed it. When I update the databse file on a shared public drive on the server, he is able to 'refresh' his desktop file successfully !!

File Access Control Using Range

Jun 29, 2012

I have sheet where I need to restrict access to a select group of individuals. I have a formula in a select case statement that runs from the workbook_open event and have hard coded the names of the individuals who can access the file. If they are not on the list, they are prompted for a password. This works OK, but I have sheet that is hidden and want to maintain the list of users there and update the code to loop through the values in a named range. I have a snippet of the current code below.

Select Case function_name
Case Is = "user1"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Is = "user2"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Is = "user3"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Else
' User not authorized or opened while not on company network
' Prompt for project password
End Select

Disable All Excel Functions?

Oct 19, 2011

Is it possible to disable all Excel functions? not as in disable calculation, but actually make Excel's standard functions not available in a workbook.

My reason for wondering if this is possible is that I would like to write UDFs that perform special actions in addition to the typical Excel functions, but give them the same name as their Excel counterparts... essentially create polymorphisms / overloaded Excel functions.

Disable Excel Key-catcher

Dec 1, 2011

I'm actually trying to make a game in Excel, coded in VBS (I know, this is crazy ), and I use the API "GetAsyncKeyState" in order to catch what keys are pressed :

Public Const VK_UP = &H26
Public Const VK_DOWN = &H28
Public Const VK_LEFT = &H25
Public Const VK_RIGHT = &H27
Public Const VK_DELETE = &H2E

Set oDyn = CreateObject("DynamicWrapper")

[Code] ........

It works perfectly, except when the Excel window is activated (i.e. foreground) : GetAsyncKeyState doesn't catch keys anymore. Excel seems to keep it for himself, and don't share it with the System...

I already tried to disable the Excel DataEntryMode, but my problem's still here... Is there a way to disable this Excel's behaviour, or making GetAsyncKeyState work better ?
