Excel 2007 :: Non-existent File Tries To Open Upon Startup?
May 4, 2013
I have Excel 2007
Every time I start up excel whether it's opening a new spreadsheet or an existing one it tries to open one that I had deleted a while ago. I have nothing in my xlstartup files and I have thoroughly searched all files around it, before it, after it, and all in between. I went to Excel Options>Advanced>General and there is nothing in the field where it says "At startup open all files in:"
It seems to be trying to open the file from my desktop.
I use Excel 2007 and I have an .xls that I've had set to auto-open at startup and has worked fine for months now. Alll of a sudden a couple days ago it stopped auto-opening, and I have to now manually open the .xls. I looved in the Advanced>At Startup setting and it's set to the correct folder. What other setting in Excel 2007 do I need to check that would be causing this startup problem?
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 need to open 9 files in different worksheet. If the files is not present i want to get to the next available one. I don't understant the following code will work once, but not 2 times in arrow. The error handler routine works only once and then if the file is not present I will get a error 1004 (on this line Workbooks.Open Filename:="c:" & openfile). I know that the file is not present but the error gets trap the first time and not the second time.
I would like to create a macro to open a file in Excel 2007. My problem is that the filename changes often. After updates are made the filename is changed and the old file is moved to a backup folder. So, there is only one similar file in the folder
My filename is "RFQ Worksheet 7 29 2008.xlsx". The path is "C:Documents and SettingsahaynijDesktop".
I have a macro that is designed to paste a row of formulas into each Subtotal line on a 30,000+ line spreadsheet. I have specified the formulas that I want to paste in the named range "formulas". The macro below worked fine for about 3000 lines, then threw the error Run-Time Error 1004: Paste Method of Worksheet Class Failed on teh line ActiveSheet.Paste. I thought it had just bogged down my computer, so I added teh ScreenUpdating and Calculation lines, but they made no difference. I also tried reducing the range to just a couple thousand lines, which also made no difference. I also have found some suggestions on this forum and others for this error.
In addition to it working fine for 3000 lines, then failing, there are a couple other weird things. One is that on the line in the spreadsheet that threw the error, the formulas were pasted in up to column AX, leaving columns AY through CR blank. The second odd thing is that this exact same macro still works on my sample data spreadsheet (which only has around 50 records).
Sub FormatTotalRows() Dim rCell As Range Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual Workbooks("latest.xls").Activate Range("formulas").Select Selection.Copy For Each rCell In Range("A3040:A5000") If Len(rCell) > 0 Then rCell.Activate ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2).Select ActiveSheet.Paste End If Next Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
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.
I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls
Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?
This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.
i use excel 2007, it s slow to open a file by double-clicking and entering from windows explorer, by googling i fould a fix by adding "%1" at the end of command in "Application used to perform action" (folder options/file types/xls/advance/open). however, to open files in the same instance, i have to keep "DDE message" with [open("%1")]. With both "%1", excel now opens twice. How to fix 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 run two monitors and am able to open different files on each monitor which is very handy.
This doesn't seem to work with Excel. If I have two different Excel files open I can only view one at a time. I can move across to the other monitor, but then can only view one at a time on that monitor - very frustrating.
When I was using Excel 2010 on my last job I was shown a clunky, round-about way of being able to open two Excel files, one on each monitor. (By opening one file, opening a new Excel document from there, and then opening the other Excel file from the new document, minimizing that file and dragging it to the other screen).
Now I am using Excel 2007 and am not able to view two different Excel files, one on each screen. how I can do this in Excel 2007?
Had to rebuild my PC's hard disk and reinstall software. Now, whenever I open another workbook via explorer double click, a new instance of Excel starts. If I open another workbook using Excel's menu open, then the workbook opens in the same instance. I've tried a 'Repair' of Office and resetting the default programs to Excel for all Excel related file extension types.
I have a spread sheet that I have written that has 2 html links in it. The links work, but they only open in one browser tab. How do I get them to open in different tabs? Opening in two different browser sessions would be acceptable too. I have Excel 2007 and IE 9 but the users may have different versions.
I have been opening files from another application which opens the files in memory as .XLS. I have not saved these to my PC. Is there VBA to merge all open .XLS files into another Workbook - preferably .XLSX.
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
So I am trying to make a file that when opened will act as a template does and change the file name on start-up.
Typically, the template changes the file name by appending one number (e.g. "Book Template REV 1.1.xltm' upon opening would change the file name to 'Book Template REV 1.11.xlsx'). What I want to do, however, is to custom the name change so I could use the file 'Book Template REV 1.1.xltm' while having it change the file name upon opening to 'Custom Name 567.xlsx', without a user being notified of the change (since typically when a template opens the file, the user has no notification that the file name has changed ever so slightly).
I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.
VB: Private Sub CBReset_Click() Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double T = Timer Do E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60) S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)
I have a macro that opens all workbooks from one directory and runs a macro for each workbook to clean up the data. I cannot figure out how to take all those open workbooks and save them to another directory and close the workbook. Also, I do not want the macro workbook (xlsm) to save. I only want it to close. I am working in 2007 Excel.
do a code to open a closed .txt file. Once opened, the data inside of it should be copied on the macro workbook sheet 2 column F. I want the macro to perform a loop until all the .txt files have been opened and copied on the specified sheet and column. No worries I will still include some codes in between .txt files so no overwrite will happen. By the way I want to open the .txt file in sequence base on the file name listed in sheet1 column B2 onwards.
when I open my sheet on another computer, all cell value which contain formula show no value. just blank. formula is link to same workbook on different tab. when I save as again on my desktop, all value appears. excel 2007 is using.
I'm currently running MS Excel 2003 on Windows XP SP 3. When I launch Excel from the start menu, it starts right up. When double-clicking an Excel file, it takes approximately 45 seconds to a minute to launch and open the file. This happens no matter what the file size.
I have a excel file that opens and will automatically run a bunch of tasks if a certain user opens it. This user is only used to automatically run this excel file, other users need to open the file occasionally to edit emails address, add clients etc stuff like that, that the automation part of it works off.
Currently I have this user running the file every hour using Win7 Task Scheduler. This is working well, except for the time when another user is editing the file on the hour and of course the Automated user gets the "this file is open blah blah blah, open as read only, cancel etc" popup, this stalls everything, and if I dont notice it, it could sit like this for days.
The file runs in Read Only fine, so... Basically my question is, how to open this file as "Read Only" using Task Scheduler? As if it just ran as Read Only all the time then it wouldnt matter what other users were editing at any given time.
One of my ideas was to have Task Scheduler run a VBS script instead of running the Excel file directly, and having the VBS script simply load the Excel as Read Only.
