Excel 2007 :: Add Suffix (1) To Filename When Saving?
Aug 29, 2012
I find, when performing a 'save as', xl puts in a default filename with a suffix (1), or (2), or (3) and so on, to the existing filename, after I have opened a file from MS Outlook. I had assumed it was because there was already an existing file in the default directory, and so it was creating another version, but no other files with the same name exist in the default directory being saved to, or on the remainder of my computer, so I don't understand why this occurs.
I have an excel 2007 file which contain a lot of macros. File size is 100MB. This file is not developed by myself, it's post in the webpage and let the members of the page to download on daily basis.. I've been downloading and using this file for over a year with no problem until this week.
Problem: During opening the file. There is a message box popped up, saying "Excel found unreadable content in filename.xlsm'. do you want to recover the contents of this workbook ? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes." When I click "yes", excel is trying to repair the file. Once it's done, I could see only the contents, however, all the macros are gone. When I copied this very same file and open in other notebooks, everything is working fine...
Assumption: Couple days ago, I was writing/testing macros in other workbooks and also opened this particular file. I might did something stupid which cause this problem...
During the same time, I used to have the same problem with another file. I solved it by copy and open with another PC then copy macros and paste it to the file on my notebook.
I have someone in the company that I work for that is using Excel 2007 in compatibility mode, that is trying to make changes to an Excel 2003 file.
The file in question is a large one. She can type in the rows and columns and anything that she types will save. However if she trys to make any changes to the file in terms on calculations or highlighting specific columns, then these changes are not saved.
I have found out though that if she saves this 2003 file in the 2007 format, then all over her changes will save. She can't save it in the 2007 format due to some people still on 2003 that edit this file as well.
We've got an end user who opens a .dat file which is delimited with semi-colons, replaces some text in a couple of columns then saves as a text tab delimited file. She swears that before today, the saved file would retain the semi-colons. Now she says it's not. she generated a new .dat file for me and recreated the process, with the resultant semicolon-free file. I asked her to generate another one and send it to me. I opened it first in notepad, and saw the semi-colons.
Opened it in excel (I'm using 2010 on win 7 professional), which saw it as a delimited file and asked me to specify the delimiter. It shows up fine, all the columns are righteous. I made no edits and saved as a text tab delimited, and that saved file had no semi-colons in it when I opened it. This seems normal to me; there's no semi-colons in the excel file, so why would there be in the text tab delimited file. I asked her coworker to generate another .dat from his pc and let me know what he sees, but he hasn't reported back yet.
My set up win xp pro office 2007. Object is to save the text from a given cell to drive C naming the file with the value in another cell. E.g.
Contents of cell ("AA5") is a string and the content of ("D5") is a number
I have tried altering the code posted which i found on the forum, it works fine for the purpose as it was indented e.g. save the workbook and in my case saves it as the value in cell D5.
I guess I need to use some form of object to pass to the save as method but my knowledge of this is somewhat limited in addition as the is a possibility of either the cell being empty and the file name existing on the C drive, I need to disable the windows warnings and just go ahead and save it over writing what is on the C drive is of no importance as it will be the same data anyway, I can wrap the save in a "if Len ( AA5)= 0" to stop it trying to save if the cell if empty it the save the text string i am having problems with:
Option Explicit Sub SaveAsExample() Dim FName As String Dim FPath As String FPath = "C:" FName = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Text ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=FPath & "" & FName End Sub
I have a macro enabled spreadsheet and I need to save one sheet into a new file that is in xls format. I can do that --- is there anyway to suppress the Compatibility Checker box to make it that much easier?
The new file will not have macros as will just be a data in rows and columns so compatibility. Interesting is the compatibility checker box says there are links to the original spreadsheet, but I can't find them in the connections menu.
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
When the user goes to File, Save As, I would like the filename to be populated from the contents of cells B2 and B3, i.e. 11/18/09-23. Is this possible? Also in the same code, can I specify that I want the destination folder to be K:Sheets?
I would like code to automatically save my spreadsheet with the name that is present in cell F4 of the activesheet. For example, I would like to save my file to desktop and cell F4 contains the text 'hitec 348'
I have a file that I want to name based on content in certain cells. I.e. "Q-(text from cell G1)-(text from cell B7)-Date(mm_dd_yy)". I want to be able to specify the location where I save this file each time I try to save it, but I want it to update the file's name if any of the parameters have changed.
I have some code generated that does just about everything right except that it automatically saves a version of the file in the folder where the original is located even though it also brings up the dialog box and allows me to save it in another location.
Basically, I want to fix the code below so that it doesn't save what appears to be a backup file each time. Should I be using some sort of savecopyas?
Code: Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean) 'Add the quote # to the header ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightHeader = "Quote No. " & Range("G1").Value
I would like excel to create the folder C:/Bill if it doesn't already exist when I click save/save as option and save the workbook in it with a filename that is a combination of text/values in cells A1 and A2 on Sheet1. Better if the save as dialog box appears with this option selected so that I have to just click Save in the save as dialog box to save it in "C:/Bill".
Is it possible to create a macro attached to a button that allows me to save the workbook based on content of 2 cells in the workbook?
I like to save the workbook based on content of cell A4 that contend a text string. After that saving another time with the contend of cell A4 plus cell A9 which contend the today() function. I am doing this because this workbook is constantly updated and a backup copy is done based on the date the file is save.
From an Excel 2003 workbook I generate some product labels. Each label has a 5 digit job number and a quantity that are passed to variables. If the quantity is 1, then I have no problems in printing my label. My problem is where the quantity is greater than 1. If a job has more than 1 item (can be up to 40 or 50) I need to add a series of letter (or letters) to the end of the job number.
Job number 12345 qty 1
number on label 12345
Job number 12346 qty 4
numbers on labels 12346A, 12346B, 12346C, 1234D
so that each printed label has a unique job number
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 was wondering if there is a way to write a macro that will take an excel file that I have called Alldata and then have it copy the first two sheets to a new workbook named something else( FullSparameter_0) and then copy the name of the third and fourth sheet into the new FullSparameter_0 workbook and then copy column A-E from sheet dB Alldata.xls and paste it into the FullSparameter_0.xls workbook in the same dB sheet in the same spot. And do the same thing with the Phase Sheet. i know this sounds confusing, but im really new to the VBA stuff.
I just need 15 different files from the original Alldata.xls that will be named FullSparameter_0, FullSparameter_1, .., FullSparameter_14. but each file will have the same two first sheets, Setup Information and Cal Verification, and the same last two sheet names, dB and Phase, but then in the dB and phase sheets, it will copy over the next four columns of data. so in FullSparameter_0 it will have column A-E from sheet dB in Alldata.xls in the dB sheet in FullSparameter_0 (Same with the Phase Sheets). Then in FullSparameter_1 it will have column A and Columns F,G,H and I (for dB and Phase). In fullSparameter_2 it will have column A and then J,K,L and M. Each FullSparameter_X will have the exact same first two sheets and then the other columns for the last two sheets will be pasted into columns A-E in dB and Phase.
I am saving a .csv to a .xls and regardless of what method I use to save it in a macro there are quote marks around the filename in the dialog box. This only appears to happen if I start with a .csv as I have tested it with a .xls and there is no issue. I have tried using the following code so far.
Hi all, I've reinstalled office 2007 because excel 2007 was crashing very often when inserting new rows or when saving the file. I tried with other files and apparently work fine. The specific file can be opened but I don't know if is corrupted, I tried repairing it with open and repair from the file open menu but didn't work (it is still happening the same). I've been working on the file during few days and wouldn't like to start from scrath again, can anyone help me with this?
I have been using code to save a collection of my reports in html format that has work very well until I was forced into using Vista and office 2007. Here is a snippet of the code that no longer works - at least I suspect this is the main problem.
I want to import a csv file to an Excel workbook. The csv file name does not change, but the workbook which it is pasted into changes name every day (it has a filename which ends in todays date, and is updated daily).
Using the macro recorder I can get the process to work for today, but when as soon as I update the recipient files name the next day, the macro fails.
I have some files with filenames like text-text-text-text.lastname.xlsm. When I go to save the file, Excel keeps removing the period between the last "-text" and "lastname". change the structured filenaming convention? So far, I've noticed that this seems to happen with .xlsm file extensions, but not with .xlsx file extensions.

I have an access database where I export a file into excel on a daily basis. The file is saved to a different filename daily because I have added the date to the filename. My question is I have a formatting macro spreadsheet so when I export the file in access it will run the formatting macro in excel to format the sheet appropriately. How do I get the formatting macro to recognize to run if the excel file changes on a daily basis in vba?
This is what I have in the formatting macro:
Sub Auto_Open() ' ' AutoOpen Macro ChDir "G:SD Forecast and PlanningShortages" Workbooks.Open Filename:= _ "G:SD Forecast and PlanningShortagesShopWorkingList10052011.xlsx"
How can I get the formatting macro to run on this file when the date changes constantly in the filename?
I'm using excel 2010, looking to import a .xls file to a tab from a web query. Herein lies the problem: the .xls file is named based on the current date. So for instance, xLfile03.05.14.xls. Which changes the next day to xLfile03.06.14.xls. This is not a local file but one on microsoft sharepoint. It's ONLY available through sharepoint.
I have a macro that will add the next letter to a number as a suffix but this will only work for A - Z. But i need variations of upto 150, so i need the macro to add another letter to the variation once Z has been reached. For example at the moment 1000A the next variation would be 1000B up until 1000Z but once this has been reached the macro then starts to use symbols as the code is written using ASCII numbers. So i need the next variation to be 1000AA then 1000AB etc the code i currently have is
Public Function NewVarianceLetter(lngQuoteNum As Long, Optional rngQuote As Range) As String Dim a As String Dim i As Long Dim rngFind As Range
