File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

Feb 10, 2014

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Disable Access To Excel Backup File In VBA?

Oct 7, 2011

Is there some sort of vba code that will stop excel from creating a backup copy of the export file from access?

XLApp.ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=True

This code saves and closes the workbook, but it then creates a backup copy. I would like to enter some code so it stops making a backup file.

Remove Macro From Backup Excel Document

Oct 28, 2013

I have this macro currently running on an original excel document

Private Sub Workbook_Open()Dim fname
fname = "C:ackupEconomics Tracker - " & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm AM/PM") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs Filename:=fname
Sheets("Menu").Activate
End Sub

Which creates a backup of the document each time the document is opened; I was wondering, is it possible to remove that particular macro from the backup as opposed to saving the backup as .xlsx? I don't want to be able to open a backup and the backup makes a backup

That particular macro is running on the main workbook.

Excel 2007 :: Stop Links Changing When Use SaveAs To Create Backup?

Sep 25, 2013

I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database

When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.

Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?

Interpolation Given A Variable Table Location & Location Of Data Within

Oct 6, 2009

I am trying to develop a spreadsheet that will calculate a cost based on a matrix. I am attaching a sample of the calculation created so far. The end result is in cell M13 and is highlighted in yellow. I kind of layed the formula out in a few different cells, so hopefully it would be easy to follow.

simplify this process with maybe another formula that I might not be aware of, or maybe show me how to get this done in VB code. I think VB code would be the correct way to go just not sure.

Excel 2010 :: How To Open Files From FTP Location

Nov 19, 2012

I am using xp pro, excel 2010 and the ftp server has linux installed. To open files from server I press open button in excel, then choose ftp location from drop down menu. FTP logon box asks password with the option of default user selected. I provide password and go on.

Some days ago something happened, I don't know what but as a result of it when I opened the FTP logon box, the anonymous option was selected by default. So I selected user option, gave id password and hit ok. It did not connect. Then I removed that ftp location from excel ftp locations. Whenever I tried to add an ftp location, excel restarted stating error message " *** encountered a problem *** ". So I reached a site after some googling and was directed to add the whole ftp file location path in the "File name" box of the open dialog box. It worked and the ftp location was automatically added in ftp locations. [ any ftp setting in excel is automatically transferred to ms word as well]

PROBLEM > Now I have a different problem. I can access ftp folders and subfolders but when I select a file and click open, downloading bar at the bottom of the excel does not start and after a long wait an error message pops up " the internet address ' ftp://192.168.****/folder/subfolder/filename.xls" is not valid. [I can open ftp files using filezilla etc]

Last Instance In Range Excel Cell Location...

Sep 2, 2009

I just used the excellent formula =row(index(range,match(1,index,--(range)>0),0),0))) to give me the first instance of a number, but i am wondering if there is a formula to give me the last instance of the number as well? Maybe? This would save me much time if possible.

Excel Links To Wrong Network Location

Dec 14, 2012

I have a couple of functions in a excel addin file which is located on a network, i have been having this issue on a few spread sheets now and decided to test it on a completely new blank sheet.

The function i am using to test is called "extent" and it is called fine when loaded on one machine, loads fine on another machine, saved it. Load it up on another and the link is completely wrong. It is completely random between machines.

The link it loaded is an old one i have used before that is not in use, but it was not associated with this spreadsheet file in anyway. Is there anyway to force excel not to update these links automatically as the manual option is greyed out.

I can not fathom out why excel puts in this network location.

I have attached some screenshots, the correct network location is PODDrop BoxesPOD_AdminAddins

Saving Excel Sheet On Network Location

Mar 21, 2014

I am currently having a slightly annoying issue that only happens 50% of the time, that when trying to re-save a excel sheet on a network location. The network location is a folder on another computer. The same happens when I try and save it as a pdf, but only happens half of the time.

The message which pops up says something along the line of 'Saving as: 'File-ServerDocumentsexcelsheetexample.xls' ' and a sort of green loading bar appears. It does this for about 15 seconds then goes off.

I've checked our anti virus (which is eset) and I've set it to not real time scan network locations.

I have attached a example of the saving message: ExcelWarningExample.jpg

Excel 2010 :: Default File Location Not Working?

Apr 19, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. When I go into the Excel Options, to the Save option and try to type in a specific network drive in the Default File Location: box, I click OK and then it doesn't save the changes. I close Excel down all the way and then restart a new Excel session and it keeps going back to "LibrariesDocuments..."

It doesn't seem to be just related to Excel...having the same issue in Word and Access 2010 as well.

Jul 18, 2013

I would like to have a macro button that will open the file location (path were the excel is stored) in MS explorer.

I found something like:

But that give the error that an object is needed. Would that also work for MS Word?

Excel 2010 :: Identifying Location Of Form Button

Mar 12, 2012

I am looking for some code which will return the location of the form button which is being clicked on to activate the macro. I would like to avoid using an active.x button if at all possible.

In this way I can use the same macro on a column of buttons to trigger an action based on adjacent cell contents.

e.g.

Name Button
Mr a Button1
Mr b Button1
Mr c Button1

The aim is to use the button on an index tab and to capture the name next to the button as a sort string for data on a separate tab.

I am running Excel 2010 on Windows Xp.

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.

Save Backup Of Workbook Before Close

Dec 15, 2009

I call the macro below from a Workbook_BeforeClose sub; however, if the user has not saved changes before they hit the close then the Sub SaveFile runs and then after the backup save they are then asked do you want to save changes.

I initially had this sub run with Workbook_BeforeSave, but I don't really want to run this everytime the user selects save.

Any ideas on how to how the save changes first and then the backup?
