I'm running on Ubuntu 13.04 and have a problem with libreoffice and openoffice alike. With libreoffice the problem occured, then I removed libreoffice and installed openoffice, on which the same problem occured.
Sometimes, when I open a writer document, it doesn't open. When I look into 'system-monitor' I do see the process is started, but it won't open. It doesn't do anything. No error message, nothing!
And when I try to 'end' or 'kill' the process in system monitor, it just doesn't. Then I log out and log in again, and then when I open a document, it brings my to the recovery window.
Then everything is fine, till it happens again. The same problem occurs on another pc with 13.04 also.

I am having an issue with Excel creating a duplicate file when logged in as a user with restricted permissions on our network. If I modify a file while logged in as another user, excel will save the file but will also create a duplicate file with an eight character random name and no file extension. For example if user "Dave" opens a file called test.xls and saves it, in that same folder on the server a file named 296E9E20 will be created. Users are using Windows XP SP3 boxes and the server is running Win 2003. I am not sure why this only happens with Excel.
I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls
Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?
This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
do a code to open a closed .txt file. Once opened, the data inside of it should be copied on the macro workbook sheet 2 column F. I want the macro to perform a loop until all the .txt files have been opened and copied on the specified sheet and column. No worries I will still include some codes in between .txt files so no overwrite will happen. By the way I want to open the .txt file in sequence base on the file name listed in sheet1 column B2 onwards.
I have a excel file that opens and will automatically run a bunch of tasks if a certain user opens it. This user is only used to automatically run this excel file, other users need to open the file occasionally to edit emails address, add clients etc stuff like that, that the automation part of it works off.
Currently I have this user running the file every hour using Win7 Task Scheduler. This is working well, except for the time when another user is editing the file on the hour and of course the Automated user gets the "this file is open blah blah blah, open as read only, cancel etc" popup, this stalls everything, and if I dont notice it, it could sit like this for days.
The file runs in Read Only fine, so... Basically my question is, how to open this file as "Read Only" using Task Scheduler? As if it just ran as Read Only all the time then it wouldnt matter what other users were editing at any given time.
One of my ideas was to have Task Scheduler run a VBS script instead of running the Excel file directly, and having the VBS script simply load the Excel as Read Only.
I was able to open and read this file before installing Windows 8.
The background to this is that after installing Windows 8 and reinstalling Windows University 2010 my word documents and excel files where all opening up as word pad documents. I figured out the solution to the above on my own and I am now able to properly read the excel and word documents that I tested. But I am not able to read a very important excel file. It is very important that I restore somehow this file.
When I open the excel file a dialogue box open up saying "Excel found unreadable content in "Account.xlsx". Do you want to recover the content of this workbook? When I choose Yes the following dialogue box opens up saying "Excel cannot open the file "Account.xlsx" because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the extension matches the format of the file".
The file extension is set to xlsx however how do I test to see if it is corrupt. Is there anything I can do to restore this excel workbook?
While opening one Excel file I get an error message saying that a 2nd file could not be opened because it cannot be found. I do not want this 2nd file to open. WHere do I find the "command" that is telling this 2nd file to open.
I have a file that became too big due to phantom bloat, unused range saved by Excel and all that kind of reasons. Thank to previous posts on that board tackling that issue, I was able to find how to proceed to reduce the file back to its normal size.
But I did so in a beta file (test file). The real file has become so big (103MB!) that Excel cannot even open it anymore! The file contains archive info that we do not have anywhere else.
Is there anyway then to open the file or to reduce its size without opening it (through magics...)? I just honestly don't know how to retrieve that info before deleting that file.
I work for a company that has about 650 locations. Each location has a location manager that is responsible for submitting a Performance Review spreadsheet for all the employees at their location.
Currently I have an Excel file that has all employees/locations. One of the columns on my spreadsheet is "Location ID"...which is literately a number we've assigned to our Locations. I have an Excel template saved that I'd like each Location to open into.
Can someone help me? I need each location to be it's own spreadesheet...which I have a template created already. I'd prefer to find an automated way to do this...rather than manually creating 650 spreadsheets.
I'd prefer to do this in anoter application, such as MS Access, but senior management already made the decision this will be done in Excel...so I'm stuck with what I got.
I received a USB drive from a client with an Excel spreadsheet with hyperlinks to PDF's (not sure of the version it was originally created in but my version is 2007). The PDF's are in another folder on the USB drive.
The cells with the hyperlinks have a formula to hidden cells [i.e. =HYPERLINK(C17,B17)] - in column B is the name of the hyperlink and in column C looks to be the file trial to the PDF (please see attached picture).
When I select the link, I get an Alert Box stating, "Cannot open the specified file." How I can get these links to work?
I have created several excel files as I cannot open them all at once since they are too large. So I have to open one excel file whilst closing another.
part1 part2 part3 part4 part5
I want a macro that opens the excel file part 1 and part 2. Then it should close part 1 and after closing part 1 it should open part 3. Once part 3 is open, part 2 should be closed and when part 2 is closed part 4 should open. When part 4 is open, then part 3 should be closed and part 5 should open.
I am just wondering if there is a way of checking if the workbook that is currently open is the only one that is open, as I have been asked to make my code exit the application if this is the case rather that just close that one file.
way to find out if an Excel file is open from PowerPoint. I know there are ways to open the Excel file, but you can get a warning message if the file is already open. So I want to check to see if it is open first before I go to the code that opens it.
I want to put in an if-then statement in a macro that will check to what kind of report i open so it will automatically know what to do with it. Where do I put that macro? I tried it in auto_open in my personal.xlsb file but it stops before the file actually opens.
I am working on a project where i am having 8 excel files saved at diffrent location so i want to create userform which will open particular file location and from that user can select the file which he want and then can go further. so i need a coding so that user will be prompt 8 times with file location. for eg. once user select particular file from location then again this code route him to select next file from file location. is it possible??
I tried using below code but in this code when i run userform file is not opening but when i run this code mannually by pressing F8 desired file is opening i dont know what is glitch in this ? another problem i am facing is not able to understand how to repeat this steps again to open another file using this code??

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.

I compared data between excel worksheets all the time, well recently my computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and since then I have not been able to figure out how to have an Excel file to open in the Excel window selected(or last active window) when I have more than one workbook open. Is there a way to do this?
