Disable Save & SaveAs Menu Items

Jul 13, 2006

Is there a code or a way to make it impossible to make permanent changes to a file without first saving it as something else? I have a master report that is done monthly.

I do not want anyone to be able to save any changes on the master report. How do I go about disabling save and the save as funtions in excel? I have a save as command button that I only want people to use.

Also is there a way to set up a print command button to print to any computers default printer? I have set up a print command button on my computer and it works fine on mine, but I have sent the file to another person and the button is not doing anything on their computer. I assume because we don't have the same computers.

Disable Manual Save But Let VBA Save?

Oct 5, 2011

I need my spreadsheet to require that the user save it by clicking a macro button, and not the Save or SaveAs options in the file menu. I have found out how to disable saving entirely:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
If SaveAsUI Then SaveAsUI = False
End Sub

But this of course prevents my macro button from saving too!

Is there any way to allow VBA code to save the spreadsheet while simultaneously preventing the user from saving through the menu?

- Disable Save As And Define The Save Name

Nov 16, 2006

I have a file that I have created that the users will use as a master template to create data that I need. Once they have finished, I want the file to define what the filename should be when they click save.

At the same time, I want to disable "Save As..." as some users will just use that and then will use a file name that another macro (that I will use) won't recognise.

Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.

All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.

VBA (Save As) No Error But File Does Not Save

Oct 10, 2011

I have written the following simple macro to import some data into a worksheet and then prompt the user to save the file in Excel 2003 format (the system to which we will upload this data does not accept formats later than 2003). The template is in "*.xlsm" format.

The code executes without error, but when the user hits the "Save" button in the "Save As" dialog box, nothing happens. The "Save As" box closes, but no file is saved.

Code:
Private Sub cmdImportData_Click()
Dim sFName As String
'On Error Resume Next
PrepData
CopyData
FormatColumns
'prompt the user to save the file in "*.xls" format
sFName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename("upload", "Excel files (*.xls), *.xls")
End Sub

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.

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 "dd.mm.yy" 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.

Disable Save As At Program Level?

Jan 29, 2014

I know the disabling of 'Save As' has been covered alot. I have successfully disabled both Save and Save As at the file level by the following:

Making file Read Only (which disables Save option)

Inserting the following VBA to make the Save As disabled.

[Code].....

The remaining problem I have is disabling the Save As prompting at the program exit level.

For example, if I have a read only file with Save As disabled and I choose the workbook (file) level close window (X) button, I am prompted to save the file but am not allowed to. This is the behavior I am looking for.

HOWEVER, if I choose to exit the file by selecting the program (Excel) level close (X) button, I am prompted to save a copy of the file and it allows me to do it.

I do not want my ~180 users to have any option to save the file once it is uploaded to a centralized server location. It is a large file and I do not need multiple versions floating around.

Is it also possible to disable the 'Save As' on close at the Program level??

Disable Save Except When Pressing Button Or Using Modifier?

Apr 15, 2014

I have a button in a template file, that when clicked, saves the file as a new file with file name based on data in certain cells.

I want to disable the ability to save the file with the Save icon or Ctrl-S, but the button still needs to be able to save it (the button is technically doing a Save As, so no problem there). But, I, as the administrator of the template, need to somehow be able to save updates to the template file. Can this be accomplished by coding Save to work when used with a secret key combination that only I know (I can put it in password-protected VB code)?

Then, as if that's not tricky enough, the trickier part is that once the file is saved as the new file (no longer the template) - re-enable the Save button and Ctrl-S so the user can then save it as many times as they want.

Capture "Save As" Pathname And Save Another File

Nov 10, 2009

I have an excel workbook that uses a .bmp file [a picture]. The master excel file and the .bmp file are in the same directory on the network. The excel file is "Read-Only", so the user would open it, customize it and save it on their own computer or somewhere else on the network.

They are only allowed to save it under "Save As". Once the user saves it, they would then be able to use their customized copy for future updates etc. The problem is that the .bmp file is missing from this new directory.

Is there a way to automatically save a copy of the .bmp file under the Directory specified by the user, so it's always available when the Excel workbook is opened? Or is there a way to attach the .bmp file to the excel file, so they are always saved together?

Excel 2003 :: Unable To Allow Users To Make Changes To Workbook But Only Be Able To Do Save As Not Save

Dec 3, 2012

I have an expense report, which was originally done in Excel 2003. It still prompts users to open as read only however if they select no, they are not prompted for the password, and it has allowed them to save, so when the next person opens it, they have the previous person's report instead of the clean workbook. I have tried everything to put a password onto it. I know this is really basic stuff, but maybe I am missing a step? I want the end user to be able to make all the changes they want in read only mode and then do a save as, but if the select No when prompted "Open as Read-only?" they should have to put a password in.
