Excel 2007 :: VBA To Save And Close All Open Workbooks Except Macro Workbook?
Mar 8, 2013
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.
I need to have a workbook (all of them in a folder, ideally) refresh in the middle of the night. The file is large so the refresh takes a full minute. I know I can't auto refresh a closed workbook (pretty sure anyway), and I can't leave the workbook open for various reasons.
So I'm thinking I could have a macro in an open excel (it kicks off on open) that will open a particular workbook elsewhere (the one I need refreshed), open it, refresh it and close/save it. Ideally it would do this for the entire group of workbooks in the folder but I'd be happy to start with just one. I would like to set it to occur every twelve hours (so at midnight, say, this would occur - I would just have to leave the workbook with the macro in it open on a computer so that it runs and completes this task every night).
I've got a kind of "menu" sheet that will pull up various reports from Excel spreadsheets. Rather than having the user work with the live data, the menu opens the file and saves it as a copy, closing the original. This is working fine.
The tweak I want to add is, since the user is looking at a copy rather than the live data, I don't want them to save when closing. Is it possible to programatically add a bit of code to the new copy to handle this?
Here's a sample of one of the menu button's code:
Private Sub CommandButton18_Click() Dim wb As Workbook Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="J:Z PII OvensRack Repair TrackingRack Repair List.xlsx") With wb.Worksheets("Sheet1") .Unprotect Password:="pass" ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy End With
Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.
I am using 2007. This may be something simple but I can't seem to find a solution to this, I have an excel macro enabled workbook which produces a daily report the final task is to save and send an email but I need the file to save as an xls rather than xlsx as some of the recipients are unable to open the file here is the code used for the tasks in the
workbook:Sub Step1_Refresh() ' ' Step1_Refresh Macro ' ' ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll End Sub Sub step2_save_close()

i have this macro to save as a csv this macro only save the workbook the you are looking at, i will like for this macro to save as a csv all open workbooks preserving the name of the xls file.
Sub SAVE_AS_CSV() Dim strFilename As String strFilename = ActiveWorkbook.Name strFilename = Left(strFilename, InStr(strFilename, ".")) & "csv" ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs filename:=strFilename, FileFormat:=xlCSV End Sub
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 am relatively new to writing script in excel. I have a 34 sheet workbook that includes inputs, intermediate calculations and then reporting outputs.
I am trying to write macros to do the following
1. On opening - all sheets except a contents page (with macro buttons on it) are hidden 2. One of the macros on this page will unhide all sheets (i.e. a 'developer mode') 3. One of the macros will unhide all relevant input and reporting sheets (i.e. a 'user mode')
I originally set up macros to run on workbook opening that hid all sheets except the contents page and this was working but ran into trouble when I opened up the 'User Mode' saved my changes and exited - the macro didnt work when I went to open again (I think because some of the sheets were visible and some werent and it was trying to hide sheets that were already hidden).
To counter this I set up a macro that made all worksheets visible on workbook closing - this works except I keep getting a 'Save' prompt from excel because the location of selected cells (or the sheet I am viewing) has changed from last opening (not to mention the inputs may change).
I am thinking the best way to fix this as follows:
1. Keep the opening macro the same 2. Keep the user/developer macros the same 3. On closing - develop a macro that unhides all sheets after the user has selected whether or not they have made changes to the sheet in a pop up message box - if they choose yes then they are prompted to save as and then the macro to hide all sheets runs on the new version - if they choose no then they are not prompted to save the document (i.e. next time they open they will be opening back at the contents page with the same inputs they started with in the previous session).
I have a folder which has a set of files (Files may be anything like excel,pdf,word..etc).My rrequirement is: When i run the macro the first file to last file should open and wait for 5 sec and then close..I mean first time the first file should open and wait for 5 sec and close..Next 2 nd files shoul open and close after 5 sec..next third files should open and close after 5 sec...Like wise till last file..Is this possible to achive through macro code..
I have created several excel files as I cannot open them all at once since they are too large. So I have to open one excel file whilst closing another.
part1 part2 part3 part4 part5
I want a macro that opens the excel file part 1 and part 2. Then it should close part 1 and after closing part 1 it should open part 3. Once part 3 is open, part 2 should be closed and when part 2 is closed part 4 should open. When part 4 is open, then part 3 should be closed and part 5 should open.
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 made an Excel based program that uses multiple workbooks with two main workbooks (“Master List” and “Products”) that all the others pull information from. I run into a problem when a user clicks the close X in the upper right hand corner and the entire application closes. I found some code that will let me close all the workbooks but one (the code is put in the “Products” workbook in the BeforeClose event).
For Each wb In Workbooks If Not wb Is ThisWorkbook Then wb.Close SaveChanges:=True End If Next wb
Is there a way to modify the code so it will close all the workbooks but the two main ones if someone clicks the close X button in the upper right hand corner?
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....

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 have 3 workbooks open. 1 is my working file and I name it as "Final[date].xlsm". The other 2 files are my source files which are also open are named as source1.xlsx and source2.xlsx. Both the source files has only one tab/sheet as "Sheet1". My objective is to bring the contents of the source file to my working file in 2 different sheets. all the contents in Sheet1 of "Source1.xlsx" should be paste.values only to the "Final[date].xlsm" with a sheet name "BankDetails". This will enable the user also to replace the old data in "BankDetails" tab. The "source2.xlsx" sheet1 has a different situation. I need to copy only the cells with values, not the entire cells, because it has to be pasted (values only) to range C2:L. I have formulas in the other columns before C and after L.
Take note that my working file name is changing every based on the date while my source file has always same file name.
Intention is to (automatically) fully protect each completed worksheet/workbook on "save"/"save as" in MS Excel 2007... Is this possible by means of a macro? Which one? Saving in a ".xlsm" format is required?
I have 5 Excel files. The first one is Main, and the other 4 are subfiles, namely A1, A2, A3 & A4. I have a need to open Main, then click a button to start a Macro (in Main) which will do the following, sequentially:
1. open A1 2. run a Macro in A1 3. close and save A1. 4. open A2 5. run a Macro in A2 ... 12 close and save A4.
The files A1..A4 are a file server and being shared. If they're being used by another user, it cannot be saved - so I would have to skip it and continue with the next A. It would be great if start Excel, open Main, and run the Macro in Main fully automatically.
I'm working on developing a stock option trading system in Excel using a live data feed and VBA. It tends to crash after running flawlessly for a half hour to 2 hours. It seems to crash when loading a support workbook, so I was hoping you could take a peek at my code and see if there's a problem with the way I'm dynamically opening/closing workbooks.
In order to cope with limitations in the amount of live data that I'm accessing (through DDE with Reuters Station), I've split up the data I need into about 600 workbooks, which open when they're needed or close when they're not (through VBA). At any given time, about 35-40 of these workbooks are open.
The main workbook that uses all this live data and support workbooks is set to have the application recalculate every 5 seconds (automatic recalc crashes the program almost immediately). After that refresh, it calls other subroutines, including opening/closing these support workbooks:
I have 4 workbooks, all of them contain data that is managed by other teams at my company. I need to take all of this data, organize, and concatenate it into one sheet for myself, that I will then reference in other workbooks to various OTHER departments in our company that need the data for certain projects. I have the organization laid out in a lot of very complex formulas so that most of this is automated, and not manual.
I need a solution that can pull data from the 4 workbooks without locking them for use, to allow me to keep my document open all the time, and they can update theirs at their leisure. Everything works fine, until I hit the refresh button. Once this is hit, all of the linked documents are locked and cannot be opened, even in "Read Only" mode. Once I close the master document, the files are free to be opened. I know a workaround for now is that i can not "refresh" the document, but rather close and re open it for changes.
Some steps I have already tried :
1. Create an intermediary file that no one uses, and can be locked all day without a problem. This doesn't work for me since the intermediary file needs to be open to refresh, which locks the original source doc, leaving me in the same place as before.
2.Modify the connection string to display "Mode=Read;" instead of "Mode=Share Deny Read"
3.Create a new connection with "Read" only selected in the Advanced Tab
I'm trying to create a VBA macro which will open external workbooks in a specific folder. thes workbooks will have filenames which are identical to the value in cell B1 of my active workbook. Once open, I would use indirect to pull certain results from that external workbook and then close it. I have a separate macro already which runs through the list. I found a few examples online but they don't seem to work.
I have a 'Summary' workbook which collates values from a series of 'sub-workbooks', (and can also update values in those sub workbooks). the subworkbooks are setup so that when they are saved they also copy certain values out to another 'backup' file. So there are 2 possible routes that the files will be used in:
1) SubWorkbook opened directly - User opens SubWorkbook and makes some changes. - User closes the SubWorkbook saving changes, or clicks the save button. The BeforeSave event opens the "restore" workbook, copies over the key values from the subworkbook, then saves & closes the "restore" workbook.
2) SubWorkbook opened remotely - User / Admin opens the "Summary" workbook and changes an option. - The summary workbook opens a subworkbook and makes changes, then saves it. The subworkbook should (as before), then open the restore workbook and save the key values etc.
The problem is in the second scenario the 'restore' workbook doesn't get opened.
I have created a set of 3 workbooks to illustrate the problem here. Book1.xls = Summary workbook Book2.xls = Subworkbook Book3.xls = Restore workbook.
If you open book2 and then save it the 'BeforeSave' event will cause it to open book3 and write the output of 'Now()' to the next free row of book3-columnA, before then closing and saving book3,......
I have a workbook that has a sheet called CustInvData, this sheet contains 4,421 rows of invoice transaction data for 178 customers starting on row 2 (headers on row 1). I need to split the transaction data for each customer out into a workbook template based on the customer name in column A. I need each workbook named by the customer name along with a month and year (example: Bellsouth-0911.xls), this should create 178 unique workbooks. And since we sometimes have to go back and rerun invoices for previous months, I'll need to control the month and year manually in the code.
The parsed data needs to be copied to a pre-formatted invoice template. This template has 2 sheets, Sheet1 is called 'Product Summary', this is a table that uses VLOOKUP functions to read the data in Sheet2 called 'Product Details', this is the sheet the parsed data needs to be copied to for each customer invoice. The 'Product Details' sheet has formatted rows 1 thru 11, row 11 being the header row for the data from CustInvData to be copied. So the parsed data needs to start at row 12.
Last, once the data has been copied into the 'Product Details' sheet, I need the data to be SubTotaled at each change in column J (Product) and use the 'Sum' function to add a Subtotal in column L (Retail Price) for each unique product category.
Example data below, I've simplified it (the actual data array spans from columns A to Y)
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)
Automating Excel from Access, I'm attempting to generate a single sheet workbook and save to a Sharepoint site. This process works fine on my machine (XL2007, XP), but on a coworkers computer (XL2003, XP), the code throws a 1004 error on the save as line. However, the really odd thing is that stepping through the code doesn't throw an error on the coworkers machine.
Here's the sub being ran; the line it errors out on is the first branch in the .saveas block.
