I just wrote two macros that each produce separate text files (call them 'A' and 'B'). I want to open 'B' with Excel VBA, copy all of its contents, and paste that content into 'A' right after a specific location in 'A' (where I have 10 consecutive asterisks, i.e., **********).
Most topics relating to Excel VBA and .txt files have to do with either importing / exporting into Excel (not what I want), or with associating .txt files to Excel (also not what I want).
I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is
I need to combine AHK and Excel, and in this I came up with the solution to save my parameters in a file, and let the workbook autoload it when I open the workbook. To do this I need to pass a command line parameter, or working directory to the workbook, as I will be using many different work directories for this to make sense.
This is only a matter of how to execute my workbook so that the path is included (and usable) to the working directory
I have tried
..workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"
But it results in a "grey" version of Excel aka. Excel is open, but no workbooks are.
I have also tried
excel.exe workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"
But this did not work either, and is not an option as we use both 2007 and 2010 at my workplace where this is intended to be used.
I can do it very easily by using absolute paths in the Excel auto-load, but as I have explained already this is just not an option.
I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.
I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.
Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.
Code: Sub Test() Dim Rng As Range Dim wb As Workbook Set Rng = Range("A1:A2") Set wb = Workbooks.Add With wb Rng.Copy
Excel 2007.I'm looking to extract parts of an address into different columns, I've already extract the Country, Post Code & Town. But what i'm having trouble doing is extract the street address and county, the reason I'm having trouble is because not every address has a county.
Below is what I have so far:
I need to extract Street (which is in red) into the Street Column
County (which is highthlighted in dark blue) into county
I have a macro-enabled template file in Excel 2007. I would like the user to be unable to save in any format other than macro-enabled. They should be free to choose a path and filename, but not the file type.
I presume this means some VBA code in the before save event, but I don't know what.
Am working on a procedure to open all files in a folder and copy some data from the files into another workbook (master). I have this piece of the code. However, I also need to get the filename (from which data was copied) and paste this into an adjacent cell in the master (so I know which file each data point came from).
i have an excel file with hundreds of rows of product codes which i need to download images for. is there a way this can be done directly from excel? basically if cell A1 has product name and Cell B1 have product code, id like Cell C1 to generate a link that will use the contents of B1 as the basis of my google image search. can this be created using a macro?
Some of my worksheets are permission protected. They will allow me only to view the sheets - No editing, copy, cut, sort, add filter, etc. Is there a way to hack this and copy data (including formating) into other / new worksheets?
I'm trying to download an Excel file from the internet and then extract data out of it. The problem is that I don't get any errors, yet the file downloaded is only 1kb in size. The extraction bit works, but the file is empty. The actual file is size 350KB.
Code: Sub ExtractDataTest()
Dim FileNum As Long Dim FileData() As Byte Dim MyFile As String Dim WHTTP As Object
I have several sheets I use for MI and most have similar amounts of data in, ie, a tab for each month with out 15-20 columns and upto 10,000 rows, then a couple of summary sheets with filtering and calculations in.
One of my sheets is currently 16Mb, when the others are about a third of that, with similar amounts of data.
Is there a way to find what is causing the extra space to be taken in this sheet?
Or does this seem about right for the amount of data?
I received a USB drive from a client with an Excel spreadsheet with hyperlinks to PDF's (not sure of the version it was originally created in but my version is 2007). The PDF's are in another folder on the USB drive.
The cells with the hyperlinks have a formula to hidden cells [i.e. =HYPERLINK(C17,B17)] - in column B is the name of the hyperlink and in column C looks to be the file trial to the PDF (please see attached picture).
When I select the link, I get an Alert Box stating, "Cannot open the specified file." How I can get these links to work?
I have files that have thousands of rows in them with company names. The rows contain the company name plus lots of other info. I'd like to be able to create files or sheets with the company name as the file or sheet name with the respective rows contained within it. Make sense?

I have a spreadsheet listed out with 2-3 pieces of data per row like:
Mark - abc John - def John - ghi Abby - xyz
What I need to do is create a new file for each unique string in column A. So for my brief example above, the "Mark" file would have 1 row, the "John" file would have 2 rows, etc. I also need to save the new file by the name in the first column (so "mark.xls"). (Conveniently, the table is sorted by the first column already.)
What I did was create a new worksheet for each row and then save that as my file. However I'm having problems getting my file to contain more than one row (I can get either the first or last row, but not all of them). I have about 30 spreadsheets to do this for, and each will create 80+ files... I'd really rather not do them by hand.
I'm on Excel 2007 if that matters.
I cobbled together some code I found in various places and this is what I have so far:
Sub CreateWorkbooks() Dim newSheet As Worksheet, regionSheet As Worksheet, CurSheet As Worksheet Dim cell As Object Dim regionRange As String Dim lngRows As Long Dim CurRow As Long
(note that the comments are what it is supposed to be doing, not necessarily what it is doing)
I have an excel add-in which is a ribbon which houses a great deal of financial tools that I use on a regular basis so I don't have to hunt around excel for things I use regularly. The add-in has always loaded automatically whenever I opened excel - whether I opened excel by creating a new blank document or by double clicking a previously existing file.
Starting a few days ago though, the add-in only opens when opening excel by creating a new blank file. I can't think of anything that changed recently. Using Excel 2007.
Even when opening a file by double clicking, Excel still says the add-in is active (in excel options).
I would like to create a PDF file from a RANGE Name, excel 2007, attach it to MS Outlook 2007, Once in Outlook I will select the recipient, add some remarks and hit send. I can do this now with a workbook but not a range.
I created a workbook called "controlelijst.xls" using Excell 2007. In this workbook i created a sheet that i use as a template, it has conditional formatting all over it. That in fact is not the problem. I copy this template for every new issue i have.
The thing i would like to see happening now is when i enter the value "Y" in cell O10 that the active sheet on wich the value is entered becomes hidden. Because the reason for setting this value is that all conditions are met on this sheet and it does not have to be visible anymore unless i unhide it.
The workbook is called EA.xlsm, and contains dozens of charts, tables and pivot tables - all of which pull their data from external files in the same folder. In case it matters, the folder also contains a Word 2007 document which contains embedded charts form the EA.xlsm file and lays them out for printing.
My problem is that all of a sudden, when I try to open the EA.xlsm file, it gives me two consecutive error messages, as follows:
Microsoft Office has identified a potential security concern.
File path: c:My DocumentsEA.xlsm
Data connections have been blocked. If you choose to enable data connections, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]
to which I click enable, and then....
Microsoft Office has identified a potnetial security concern.
File path: c:My DocumentsEA.xlsm
Automatic update of links has been disabled. If you choose to enable automatic update of links, your computer may no longer be secure. Do not enable the content unless you trust the source of the file. [Enable] / [Disable]
to which I also click enable.
Excel then opens, but I just get the program with a blue screen. i.e. it looks like you have opened Excel, but not opened a file yet. However, if I try to close Excel, it asks me if I want to save changes to EA.xlsm, and if I try to open EA.xlsm again - it tells me that it is already open. Also, if I press Alt+F11 to open the VBA console - I can see the names of all of the sheet tabs in the file - but when I close the VBA console, it looks as though I do not have a file open again.
I suspect that somehow, somewhere the file is open, but I dont know what I need to do to be able to see/edit it. Or even worse - if it has become corrupt. It would take me about a month to put this file back together again from scratch.
I want to copy the header from a previous months report and paste it to a new workbook in Excel 2007. How can I write a macro to copy from a1 to g2, keep the same column width and all formatting, then open a new workbook (trouble now in that I previously selected book1 for the new one but this could chnage), and then paste this to the new workbook, and then save this to a location on my computer? So that's, copy, open new workbook, paste keeping all formatting and values, and then save.
One of my excel files has refused to open and i think it is corrupted. The error message is; Excel cannot open because the file format or extension is not valid .Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.
How do i repair and recover all the data in the excel file.
I have an XLS file that gets data from an imported XML file. I need to apply some filters and then export it in a new XML file. I'm trying both "Development->Export" and "Save as->XML Data" procedures, but it always saves all data in the XLS document, not only the filtered. How can I obtain a new XML file with only filtered data???
