Excel 2010, Win 7. I have attached a .xlsm file to an email. The contained macros run perfectly, and one of them is "public" so it shows up in "Developer - Macros", and "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" lists.
If the recipient clicks and drags the attachment to a folder, or copy/pastes the attachment, it works fine. (Macros are enabled, etc.)
However, if the recipient right clicks on the email attachment, and selects "SAVE AS" from the item list, the file saves, has the right name and extension, looks ok (the icon has the exclamation point, etc), and it is the correct size, but it simply will not load. You can double click, do a file open, etc. but it will not load. It's a hidden workbook, but if you "open it" and Alt-F11 to show the VBA editor, it isn't there!
It's not stopping the project - we simply tell them to click/drag, etc. but I totally do NOT understand why that happens.
I am using the macro below to save a file. It works with the extension .xlsx but not xlsm. I get a message that I can't use this extension for this file type. I am missing something fundamental.
Using Excel 2010 Sub testsave()' Dim a As String Dim b As String Dim c As String Dim d As String b = "Myyfile" c = b & ".xlsm" a = ThisWorkbook.Path d = a & "" & c ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=d End Sub
FYI - there are no macros in the file I am trying to save.
I'm on excel 2010 and I have a small group excel files I open everyday. Most of the files are static in name and location. I've got a macro created to open those files, which works fine with workbooks.open and the file path.
There are two report files I want to incorporate into my macro of workbooks to open. The files are created weekly and the files names have the following format: "Report Name (YYYY-MM-DD).xlsm". I don't want to use the file's last modified date because older files may get edited after the more recent ones are created. The files are also not always created on the same day, so the solution needs to be flexible enough to not refer to a specific day of the week or anything.
Macro open an excel file based on the latest date found in filename.
I have a macro which works well. All it does is save a file to a specified location on my network. However, after a file is saved there is no prompt telling the user that the file was saved successfully leaving them wondering whether the macro actually worked.
VB: Public Sub SaveAs() ThisFile = Range("X2").Value ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="legdcAudits" & ThisFile & ".xlsm", FileFormat:=52 End Sub
There are two excel files abc.xlsm and xyz.xlsm enclosed. download these two excel files to your desktop. Then open abc.xlsm and run following code.
After running code above you will see that you have a new file in your desktop named xyz.rar. Everyhing is okey until now.
Now, delete abc.xlsm, xyz.xlsm, xyz.rar from your desktop. Then download enclosed file named klm.xlsm to your desktop. Then open klm.xlsm and run following code.
After running code above why there is no klm.rar file in your desktop? Is it not possible to create a zip file running code includes same workbook? I mean why I cant zip excel file, from same excel file?
I have created a macro in excel 2010 which enable the file to save (extract) data into separate location and name. The vba code for macro is as follows: Question: How can I save this workbook with reference to the value containing in cell B2? (it is named temporary now - as defined in the code)
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.
Using Excel 2010, I have a workbook containing a variable number of PDF files captured as embedded OLE Objects. I wish to save each of the embedded PDF files to disk and assign the filename based on the contents of column 1 of the row containing the OLE Object.
I run excel 2010... I have xls file (see file attached) with both English and Non English characters.
When I save this file as xls or xlsx - everything is good, but when I save the file as CSV and try to open it later - I see that the English characters stays the same but the non English characters become gibberish.
How can I save a file (that include some non English characters) as CSV without loosing the non English characters? Is there a way to do that from within the excel 2010 menus? Or maybe there is an external tool?
I recorded a macro to save my file as PDF and assigned the macro to a button. Easy. Now I would like to change my macro to pause when the file is saving to allow the user to enter a file name. If that is not possible, I'd like to reference a cell to use as the file name. I have gone through other posts and tried changing my macro, but always get an error. I am using Excel 2010. Following is my code for saving to pdf.
I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.
In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.
There are certain .xlsm files in our system (some have macros and others don't) which generate "Error: Source not Found" in the Edit Links dialog box when the Check Status button is pushed. However, the source location is correct, as you can click on Open Source and it will open the correct file.
For simplicity of explaining my issue, consider the following scenario. In my workbook "Corn Production Summary.xls_" I link to 2 source files: "Iowa.xlsm" and "Nebraska.xlsx" (Note: The extension of the summary file doesn't matter. This error happens regardless of what the summary is.)
When I open "Corn Production Summary" I am prompted to update values. I select Update and the file refreshes and recalculates appearing to have updated all values (i.e. no error messages). However, the values from Iowa.xlsm did NOT update and there was no error message indicating that the values didn't update.
To confirm this, I go to Data>Edit Links>Check Status in "Corn Production Summary" and I see that Iowa.xlsm has the "Error: Source not Found" error. I click on Open Source and once the file is open, my data in the summary file will update.
One work around was to do the following process (with the summary file closed):
1) Iowa.xlsm and Save As Iowa.xlsx (removing macros if needed)
2) Save As Iowa.xlsx as Iowa.xlsm (overwriting the file that is currently there and readding the macros)
3) Open the summary file and both Iowa and Nebraska work just fine now.
There are a lot of files like this, and because Excel doesn't prompt us that it isn't really getting the values from these certain .xlsm files we would have to search in "Edit Links" for each file to make sure that they really are updating.
I am using Excel 2007. I have pasted my code below. It works fine unless it has a space, in which case it inserts %20. In this case, sRange2 = ActiveSheet.Range("E11") will always have a space in it since this is where i store a job's name.
Sub Macro1() Dim sRange1 As String Dim sRange2 As String Dim sRange3 As String Dim sRange4 As String Dim sFullPath As String
My office just converted to 2007 and I am running into a problem with code used to save a workbook. I need to use a dialog box as the file could be placed in several different locations which the user needs to choose.
When the save as dialog box opens it defaults to being saved as the xls type. I would like to modify the following code so the file type drop down defaults to the xlsm type. Below is my code.
I know there are plenty of examples on how to do this at a basic level but I am looking at making it a bit more custom.
I would like to put some variables on a sheet in a workbook and use those to drive the behavior of the code.
EG I would like to specify the save-as-pdf path (eg c:users.etc), the email addresses to be emailed TO (specify a range eg A1:A14 where each cell has a different email addy in it), like wise for CC and then BCC (new ranges), also be able to specify subject of email (EG Cell F1.value is email subject).
What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.
All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.
VBA coding for automatically saving an excel file as another file using the current date as part of the file name together with "32ga" as a constant add-in. I also what this macro to run at a particular time of the day let say 00:20hrs. The excel file i want to save as is always open . It has data that changes every 24-hrs.
In Excel 2010 onwards (probably 2007 as well) there are two right click context menus that pop up on a cells.
The "Cell" command bar and also a smaller formatting bar.
What is this bar called and if you remove it how do you get it back when you have removed all the standard bars.
The above doesn't seem to get back the formatting bar. I did managed to get it back but through luck rather than judgement. Just through looping through every commadbar and printing it to the immediate window.
I've added the name of the context menu to each commadbar but the formatting one does not get a name put at the bottom of it. I've looked on this site and it doesn't seem to say anything about this new menu.
We just upgraded our machines to Excel 2010 and now I'm having an issue with copying forumlas down. In Excel 2007 (and 03) if you double clicked in the bottom right corner of a cell, Excel would autofill your formula (or data set) down until the last row of data in your range. Have tried all the settings in 2010 and can't get it to work. All I'm able to do is do a manual copy/paste or highlight all the cells and select fill down.
