Excel 2010 :: Using Macro To Open Network File

Jan 5, 2014

I am an extreme novice to using macros.

I used the 'record macro' feature to create the following: I created a rectangle box on sheet1 of NEW TEST.xlsm to link to the macros incidated below. Niether macro moves on after reaching the Workbooks.Open statement.

I am at a loss. Is there something in Excel that needs to be set? Is there something else that I need to do version of Excel is 14.0.6129.5000 (32 bit) MS Office Professional Plus 2010

What I am trying to accomplish is this: From 'NEW TEST.xlsm', open an excel file on the network, add a new sheet to this network file, calling it 'Pivot'. Then create a pivot table in this new sheet from the data in sheet data1 of this same network file. Then move control of macro / processing back to the NEW TEST file. Eventually I will do more, but for starters, I cannot even get the macro to add / name a new sheet in the network file.

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]PS I have attached the NEW TEST.xlsm fikle as we as the data file. NOTE: the data file has been reduced to one day's worth of data, to to the upload file size.Also, my Excel Trustred locations has "Allow trusted locations on my network" checked, and the network location to the data file in trusted user locations.

VB:

Sub Open_Add_Sheet()
Dim filename, filelocation As String
Dim wb As Workbook
filename = "11 Nov, 2013 GDO AHS Agent Productivity Report.xls"
filelocation = "R:acharukAHS ReportsGDOGDO CSR ACTIVITY Report2013" & filename
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filelocation) '
' Open_Add_Sheet Macro

[Code]....

Excel 2010 :: Saving File To Network Drive - Amend Date

Jan 29, 2014

I am currently creating a simple macro to save out files to a specific folder on one of our network drives. Since we will be doing this often I would like to amend the date the the file name saved for sorting/organizational purposes.

Unfortunately I have been running into a few issues, this is what I have tried so far but keep getting a SaveAs error:

Code:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation TeamDC Tools" &
"Copy DC Conversion WB_2014 " & Format(Date, "yyyymmdd") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlNormal

I have also tried:

Code:
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation Team
DC ToolsCopy DC Conversion WB.2014_" & _
Format(Now(), "YYYYMMDDhhmmss") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=56

But still no avail. I believe it may have something to do with the file format but I am not sure. I am running Excel 2010.

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Open XLSM File Based On Latest Date Found In Filename

Feb 11, 2013

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.

Is File Open On Network

Jun 28, 2007

when I open a file, called "A", I want it to automatically open another file, which is shared on the network, called "B". I've tried using the "IsFileOpen" routine and a few other sets of code that I've found on the internet but none of them solve my problem.

If "B" isn't open on any computer and I open "A", there is no problem, and if "B" is already open on my computer when I open "A" again, there is no problem, but if "B" isn't open on my computer and is open on somebody else computer, "B" won't open on mine when I open "A", the code assumes that because "B" is open on someone elses computer, "B" is already open on mine.

Is File Open Over Network

Sep 6, 2007

I want to be able to check when workbook opens if a particular Excel file is open or not by having a true or false in a cell. This works fine if I have it open on same computer, but if I log on to another computer over a network and run same workbook it won't pick up if file open or not. I have tried various ways from this forum for file paths over network including eg. C:file or '\path on networkfile or N:pathlocfile etc. Nothing apears to work. If I check to see if file open from a different computer than the one the file is open on I receive standard message file already in use etc.

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.

Excel 2010 :: How To Find And Select (not Open) A File In Explorer Using VBA

Dec 11, 2013

Two months ago our employer seriously limited the size of our mailboxes. We are "forced" to store emails as msg files on our network. PST archives are not allowed. This naturally sucks, as in Explorer you only have the file names and dates to look for that one particular email amongst hundreds (thousands) of msg files. I was able to compose a program in Excel 2010 that generates a list of msg files from a selected folder, together with metadata (sender, receiver, etc.) and so on.

In a test the program worked fine with 6,710 msg files I could post the code here, but the comments and many of the variable names are in Dutch (I never expected it to work in the first place). There is one thing I would like to add to the program. Sometimes I want to add an email to a new email as an attachment. Nowadays I have to look for the right msg file in Explorer by hand, which is a pitty, because I have the paths and filenames in my worksheet. I can put that in a string variable and let VBA do the looking up.

But I don't know how. I would like to be able to let VBA look for the file in Explorer, select it and then stop. I could then drag and drop the selected msg file in my new email. But all my attempts to find example code end up with code that enables a user to select a file and immediately open it. That is one step too far for me. If the msg file is opened, I cannot add it to a new email as an attachment anymore.

Excel 2010 :: Open Text Files In 65536 Row File Instead Of 1048576?

Apr 22, 2013

Is there a way to open a text file from Excel 2010 and specify that I want it in .xls format?

I am working in compatibility mode, and expected that when I opened a text file from code within an xls file, the text file would have 65,536 rows, but it has 1,048,576. This causes a problem when we try to copy the sheet with the data from the text file, and insert the sheet into our xls workbook. See code below. The error is: Run-time error '1004': Excel cannot insert the sheets into the destination workbook, because it contains fewer rows and columns than the source workbook..

I know I can get the data other ways (such as copying and pasting only the cells containing data) but I was hoping to make minimal changes to the code below as I will have to make it across several templates. Specifically, I was hoping that there was a qualifier I could add to the Workbooks.OpenText statement after "Tab:=True" - Perhaps something about opening the text file in File Format 56. However I have not been able to find out how to do that.

Code:
.....FileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*),*.*,GeoTAC Files (*.ctf),*.ctf, ­_
Text Files (*.txt),*.txt,Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", 1, , , False)
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=FileToOpen, _

Open Network Location Macro

Aug 10, 2007

In my macro I need to open to paths. the 1st path I I have working. Here is the

Dim OpenA As Workbook, OpenB As Workbook
Dim TheFile As String
Dim TheFile2 As String

ChDrive "H:"
ChDir "H:Treasury Project"

TheFile = Application. GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xls), *.xls", , "Select the file and choose open.")
If TheFile = "False" Then
Exit Sub
End If ...............

The "????" are where I don't know what to do. I used a test path to make sure all code works and it does, but the real path is a network location. When I go to it manually with excel this is where it shows me to have gone: My Net Work Places, Entire Network, Microsoft Windows Network, Company2, datawhse, root, LAW81, Lawson, Print, Name. If I open a file and do =cell("filename") it gives me \datawhse
ootLAW81LAWSONprintNameanrvwfins111thSSFRPMOEDTL.csv. Is it possible to get excel to open me up to ...\datawhse ootLAW81LAWSONprintName.

Excel 2010 :: Find Out Permissions On Set Of Folders On Company Network?

Apr 30, 2014

I have been tasked with trying to find out the permissions on a set of folders on a company network. I know write vba code to manipulate a excel spreadsheet without any problems, but it is when i'm using objects that it starts to go beyond my capability. whilst searching i found this code:

Code:
Sub test1()
Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 8
Const FullAccessMask = 2032127, ModifyAccessMask = 1245631, WriteAccessMask = 118009
Const ROAccessMask = 1179817

[code].....

It does a perfect job but puts the data into an html file. i managed to get it to input the data into the spreadsheet as well but i would like to clean this code up so that it is not producing another file (namely the text file or the html file) and just put the results into the excel file I have entered the module into.

I did start to remove the references to any file name, but that is where i run into trouble and it wouldn't run any more due to object not found.

I'm on Win 7 using Office 2010

Internal Hyperlinks In Excel File Stored On Network Drive

Oct 16, 2013

I am having trouble creating a hyperlink to a place in the current document for a file stored on a network drive. My workbook has a lot of sheets (50 or so), so I created a 'Navigation' sheet that contains hyperlinks to all the worksheets located therein, and pasted a link back to the Navigation sheet in cell A1 on every tab.

Setting up these Navigation sheets has never a problem until I started posting the file on a network drive. As soon as I did that, I noticed that the internal hyperlinks on all sheets in the workbook would stop working after I closed the file in Excel. Note that this network drive is not set as a drive letter on my computer, and is only accessible by entering the server ip address in Windows Explorer.

An example address the hyper is trying (and failing) to open is: "file:///\ IP ADDRESS sub-folders activefile.xlsm"

I've tried a few options, using the HYPERLINK formula, using the HYPERLINK feature in the Insert ribbon, etc, but all to no avail.

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that itís not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ĎWorkbook_Opení etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesnít contain a macro to auto open and because csvís usually donít like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.
