Excel 2007 :: Saving File With Name Based On Cell Contents With Custom Formatting
Aug 16, 2012
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 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.
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
Any way to import and use icon sets for conditional formatting other than the ones provided in excel 2007? I would like to have some circles and shapes in colors other than just yellow, green, red, and gray.
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 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'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.
This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.
I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.
I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.
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
Excel 2007 Conditional Formatting. I am trying to apply conditional formatting to a wide range of cells. I only want the rule to adjust the color and shading, under the FONT tab in the section below. Specifically, I do NOT want to adjust the number format (I have the user select the scaling and use VB to populate the number formatting). I accomplish this by removing the number formatting by going into the conditional formatting rule, clicking on format, and then on the first tab (Number) -- on the bottom right there is button to Clear.
This resolves the issue perfectly, and I can operate the report exactly as I would expect.
Unfortunately, when closing the report (after a save), and then re-opening, the conditional formatting number format is no longer cleared. Worse yet, because it no longer is cleared, the scaling VB doesn't work, unless I go back into conditional formatting rules, and go to the number tab, and click clear.
I'm creating an excel document that tracks the amount of time someone has (in months) in the program. Certain residents are able to 'fast track' if they meet conditions, and I am trying to create this spreadsheet so that anyone who looks at it can tell who qualifies (and when).
The issue I'm having is with conditional formatting, because I don't know how to do it with mutliple conditions.
Column C is their previous time (months) in the program Column D is their current time (months) in the program Column E is their total time in the program (Sum C+D)
Coumn E is what I would like to format, based on the following rules set out in the program manual:
If previous time is 9 months or more, a resident is eligible to fast track after 6 months current time (format green). If previous time is less than 6 months, a resident is eligible to fast track after 9 months current time (format green).
I understand that their is an odd gap - but these are the rules currently set out by the program manual, which is what I have to follow.
I am trying to save filter options to so I can apply the same filter to multiple spreadsheets. For example, I have several spreadsheets with 50 or more school names and I am trying to set a filter that will filter out the same 20 schools each time. Is there anyway to do this in excel 2013?
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 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?
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.
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 conditional formatting set up so that the cell becomes highlighted if it contains a specific text.
Example of wanted conditional formatting:
Conditional formatting rules manager Rule
Stop if true
For some reason this formatting is inherited by another adjacent cell as we continue to input information.
Column M is formatted so if 'AP' is placed in any cell in that column the cell fills pink. As more information is inputted into the sheet, the conditional formatting copies to Column N. It does not happen with every entry and I have not been able to isolate the specific steps to recreate the copying. Multiple people use the same sheet and fill it out and needed.
After working with the sheet changes are made to the "applies to" column without people meaning to.

I would like to make this formatting so that is only applies to the Column M and not "travel" to other cells of the sheet.
I have a Workbook (Test 1) with several columns A-S. I'd like to be able to continue to add data into Test 1, and have some of the data pulled into a new Workbook (Test 2). Basically pulling data from Test 1, cols. D, L, J, E, I, C, K, Q and S - into the new workbook Test 2.
Some of the columns in Test 1 have conditional formatting and data validations, but I need the data in these columns to be replicated into Test 2 - without having to copy/paste between the 2 workbooks.
I figured how to do this in Excel 2010, but my office is still using 2007 and I can't seem to get it to work....
I'm using excel 2010 and windows XP with a moderate amount of experience tinkering with macro programming. I know what I need is very doable but I can't get my head around what the code would look like. I must not be wording my searches correctly because most of what I'm getting for results are iterative programs based on a cells value which isn't what I need.
I'm trying to build a macro that will check a cell (C3) and based on the contents of that cell copy a column (I) to one of 12 different columns (K:V). So if the value in C3 is 1 it should copy I to K, if the value is 2 it should copy I to L, and so on.
Can a macro rename Excel files based on a cell's contents? The problem maybe that I download these files en masse from a website and they all have 54-character long randomly generated filenames which I can rename by selecting all and then use the rename function to get a series of filenames like a, a(2), a(3), ... but I would rather have the files renamed based on the text that exists in cell B1 which is the title of the report. I also read somewhere that this kind of macro only works if the tabs have names like "Sheet 1"
Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A
Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).
there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.
This spreadsheet uses a custom format of ##-##-## for a date such as 012214 prints as 1-22-14.
I need to convert this into normal short date format such as 3/24/2014 because there are four columns of dates in the spreadsheet and we have to do some addition and subtraction from one column to another.
I have a large spreadsheet from which I need to create separate Reports by hiding various rows and columns. I have followed instructions for creating a couple of Custom Views (View tab, Custom Views, Add, Inserted Name, OK, Saved the document) but nothing happens apart from getting the message "Some view settings could not be applied". In fact none of the view settings were applied.
Using excel 2007 I've created a new tab and wanted to place the 2003 file menu on it. I don't know how to include it automatically in the tab using a combination of XML and VBA. So I created a button with the callback to run some code. Unfortunately, it still places the item in the Add-in tab. How can I get the undernoted code to operate within my new tab with either XLM or VBA?
Code: Sub InsertFileMenu2003() Dim cb As CommandBar Set cb = Application.CommandBars.Add("xl2003 Menu", , True) CommandBars("Built-in Menus").Controls("&File").Copy cb Application.CommandBars("xl2003 Menu").Visible = True End Sub
I already have a Macro button built that hides values in column A. The next step I am trying to perform is a custom sort on column B in this order "Backordered", "Sourced", Shipped", and "Received". Here is my code that I have so far but where to begin adding in code to make this button sort.
