Ensure Active Workbook When File Opened By Windows Scheduler
Jul 23, 2009
This code opens a UserForm in the Workbook_Open event when the file is opened. After 10 seconds, the message is supposed to go away if the user doesn't click anything, then macros that follow are supposed to run. It is intended to allow a user to stop the macros. This works when you open the file manually (macro security must be low), you'll see a msgbox pop up after the UserForm goes away.
However, when the workbook is opened as a Windows Scheduled Task (Windows/ Control Panel/ Scheduled Tasks), the UserForm does not come to the front of the screen unless a user actually clicks on the window. It just flashes at the bottom indefinitely.
I have a workbook that is a formatted report that I need to insert data from a name variable "CSV" file. I have created a macro in this workbook that calls an "Open" dialog for CSV files that I can use to browse to and open the source file. The macro then is supposed to "select all" copy and close the workbook then make the original workbook active and paste the data starting at row 2. The macro "seems" to be working perfectly except when I do the open the macro then makes the original workbook active, selects all copies then wants to close the original workbook. How can I tell the macro that the csv file that I just opened should be the active workbook, baring in mind that the name won't be known before the time it's opened so I can't hardcode the "active. workbook (NAME) "route.
I'd like to keep a progress bar userform I created in front of other windows that are opened by a module that is scanning through the data within each file. While files are opened, I want teh progress bar to stay shown at all times. Within the module opening and scanning the documents I show the userform as follows: userform1.show false
I've serached the site and found a link that supposedly explained how to do this but the site is worthless.
When I open a saved excel file I am having a problem with one workbook opening(a blank one), then the box saying that the program contains macros, and then the second actual workbook opening. I do not know what I changed somewhere alone the line, how to make just the one workbook I want (the second one) to open?
I compared data between excel worksheets all the time, well recently my computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and since then I have not been able to figure out how to have an Excel file to open in the Excel window selected(or last active window) when I have more than one workbook open. Is there a way to do this?
I want to create a standard macro that will copy values from a Master workbook to the current, active workbook I have open. The problem I have run into is when I record a macro it also records the name of the active workbook I'm copying data into and I would like it so when I bring up a workbook I just run the macro and it copies the values in. I'll be doing 8 different macros that each copy different values from the Master spreadsheet
I m not able to use the standard Excel Paste Special function when I copied a range of cells in another Excel workbook opened in a separate instance of Excel. Instead, Paste Special thinks that I have copied some non-Excel objects and gave me the Paste As options. This is not the case if I open both workbook within the same instance of Excel. Could you share with us if there is a trick to trigger the normal Paste Special options in such situations (without having to invoke Macro procedures)?
All i did was i just created a form to open a workbook from the directories.

I have an open workbook (A) and this is where the code should reside. I want to use VBA to copy the content of an entire worksheet from a closed workbook (B) to an existing worksheet in workbook A. How would you accomplish this?
How to Automatic open others Workbook when we opened the Master Workbook. Examp.: I have a workbook (Master.xls), and when this file be opened, and then others workbook (Transactions.xls, Order.xls, etc.) is opened too.
I am trying to write some code that is linked to a Command button. The code in the command button is in my workbook called "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" but then I have another workbook called "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls" that I want to do some work with - namely delete blank columns and it is here that I am having the problem.
My problem is this: my code module is contained in my project "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" and the columns that I want deleted are in the "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls". Now even though I believe I have activated the "MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls" workbook the action, that of deleting the blank columns is performed on the "MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls" workbook. Why?? Here is the code that I am using:
Sub Commandbutton() 'ASK FOR DATE AND SET IT IN THE REPORT Workbooks("MF Consolidated ACTUAL DAILY REPORT - Dev.xls").Worksheets _ ("Seg and Non Seg Bank Summary"). Range("I1") = Application.InputBox("PLEASE ENTER REPORT DATE IN THE DD/MM/YYYY FORMAT")
'ACTIVATE MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY Workbooks("MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls"). Sheets("Seg and Non Seg").Activate Dim iCol As Integer Dim Isheet As Integer With ActiveSheet.UsedRange................
I am looking for the best way to create a new file in windows. I am just looking to create a save filename template. After I run a macro, a graph is created and printed to pdf. I want this macro to create a filename, so that when the save as dialog box opens, I just have to doubleclick the existing filename. Then I save the excel workbook as another.
For example, after I run the macro, the pdf printer will open up a save as dialog to c: emp. I want to have this macro create two files there, one DaveGraph.PDF and one DaveExcel.xls. They really won't be files, just names. They can be 0kb files. I want it to be as efficient as possible. I know I could create a new workbook and save it there with the correct name, but isn't there an easier way?
Is there any way of running particlular excel workbook when Windows start? Like when Windows XP or Vista start, excel workbook (Vehicle Maintenance) will run automatically? Not so sure if can use VBA or edit registry system which I would'nt like to touch at work.
I have excel vba code to open .xls files on my server. Files to open are chosen by the user via a UserForm within my app, it shows them all their files in their directory on my server. How can I open their files (.xls) that they select but DISABLE the VBA from being able to run/execute, if they have any attched to the file?
I now have all code in place to open the file no problem, I just need to know how to disable the VBA part from being "turned on" when the file opens.
I run a macro which runs saves the active file to a different location to ensure that I retain the original like so -
If ActiveWorkbook. Name = "KEY_DATA_CFT77" + ".xls" Then ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _ "H:HOME imcEXCELKEY_DATA_2006KEY_DATA_2006_01KEY_DATA_CFT77_01.xls", FileFormat:= _ xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False _ , CreateBackup:=False End If .................................
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.
I have .xls files (ex: a.xls, b.xls etc) in a shared drive.How do I get information (run macros without changing anything) from a.xls and create a new file in my hard drive without opening a.xls. I don’t know if that is possible to do. May be sounds very weird. For example, I name this file on my hard drive as a01.xls, b01.xls from b.xls. Now I run other macros from a01.xls. which is active. I want this macros to run independent of the file name the user creates. In otherwords the workbook has to be variable. Not sure how to use ‘Thisworkbook’ function if that is what is needed to do.
Workbook Name Changes – But Workbook Does Not For Five Seconds?? MS Office Excel 2003 / SP3 Installed. I have noticed an odd occurrence from time to time while switching between workbooks. When I switch from one workbook to another, (typically via the “Window” pull down – but the same result happens when switching workbooks on the tabs at the bottom of the screen), the “switched to” workbook name will instantly appear at the top of the application, but the actual switch to the selected workbook is delayed for several seconds, (five seconds or so).
While not a major issue, it is annoying. I suspect that it is a memory allocation issue, (I have a Duo CPU System / XP Pro / 2 GB RAM), and with that in mind I have both restated MS Excel and also performed a complete re-boot. While either option does (seem) to result in the issue being (temporally) removed from my machine, it does return. I may go for several days without this issue occurring, and then it appears for no known reason
the small code i'm writing just needs to do the following:
1. open an .xslx file selected by the user 2. copy 2 worksheets from that file to the current one 3. close the selected file without saving it.
This is my code:
VB: Sub GetData() MsgBox ("Please select a file"), vbOKOnly Master = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx", Title:="Please select a file")
Opening the file works, but the last 3 lines don't because i don't understand how to declare "Master": however i dim it (workbook, object, variant...) i get an error on the GetOpenFilename line. If i don't declare it, i get an error while trying to copy the worksheets.
The Macro asks the user to point at the location of a report, it then copies information out of that report and pastes it into a master sheet. The part I am having trouble with is closing the file that data has been copied from.
