Find Files Based On Date Saved / Created

Aug 4, 2006

I am about to write a macro and I want it to identify, from the C: drive, any .csv files that were created / saved today. I have managed a pure list before and I have managed to distinguish by filename, but selection by date would be exctremely useful.

Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only

Feb 8, 2009

I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.

I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?

Extra Files Created In Same Workbook Folder

Jan 22, 2009

I have a Workbook that is located in a Networked Folder and is used by several people every day. The Workbook has a lot of VBA and also has links to other workbooks. I am noticing that over time there are several extra files being created from this excel workbook, in the same folder. The Workbook is the only file in this folder. They are not associated with any program and are just a File Type. They are titled a series of 8 random Letters and Numbers and range is size from 700 KB to about 1 MB (Slightly smaller then the Workbook file size).

Also, Is possible to automatically delete these files when they are not needed? or better yet is there some way to Prevent these files from being created in the first place?

How To Import Multiple Text Files Based On Date

Feb 14, 2014

I am trying to an excel macro that will automatically import data from specific files. The basic information is this:

1. There is a MySQL script that runs every day and creates tab-delimited text file named as the date.Example:

OutputDIR
02-14-2014.txt
02-15-2014.txt
02-16-2014.txt

2. I need grab data from each of the files for a rolling 30 day period from the date specified in the sheet. The data needs to go onto the same sheet in Excel.Example: B2 on the "Settings" worksheet says 02-14-2014. So take data from 02-14-2014 minus 30 days (01-15-2014.txt) all the way up to today and consolidate it onto an existing worksheet called "Data."

3. If the date in cell B2 is changed, overwrite the data that was already retrieved and replace it with the new import from the new date.Example: B2 is changed to 01-31-2014. Now take data from 01-31-2014 minus 30 days and overwrite what was already imported in worksheet "Data."

Date Format Is Not Saved In CSV

May 5, 2014

I have an excel file in which the date format for a column was in the following format -: 3/14/01 Since I wanted the column to display in 'mm/dd/yyyy' format, I changed the type to -: 03/14/01 and the sheet was saved. I then for a specific purpose converted the xls file to csv and noticed that the date formatting I did is not getting saved. That is, every time I open the csv the date format changes back to 3/14/01.

how to retain the date format in excel? I need to use the date format in mm/dd/yyyy only for the application I'm using.

Find Max Date Based On Corresponding Value VBA

May 26, 2013

[URL]

how to find the max date of a value in column A. From there I need to link up the price associated with that date. VBA is preferred. The information I'm working with is structured like this in this image:

MaxDate.jpg

What I want to do using VBA, is to look at the values in column A and for each of them, find the max date or most recent date. Once that is determined, on a new sheet, I want to write the value found in column A in sheet2/ColumnA and the date in column B, and the price in column C. In a nutshell, I'm looking for an effective date for pricing. The example on the bottom is basically what I'd like to extract with code onto another sheet.

Extract Date Value From Not Yet Created Worksheets To Put In A Central Document

Jun 27, 2013

At my work, we receive manufacturing plant reviews periodically from each plant. Information on the plant's completed tasks and dates of completion are then updated to a central summary document for all plants. These updates are completed forms which each plant supervisor fills out and uploads to our network. At this time, someone manually has to shift through all these plant update forms and pull key information out so the central summary document can be presented. I want to streamline this process so there is no double handling of review information or continuous code changes.

What would be a way to have the central summary document extract date information from the most recent file in a plant's update folder (i.e. a folder contains plant update 05/02/2013, 06/20/2013, 06/25/2013, 07/2/2013, 07/22/2013, 8/05/2013, 8/13/2013 and it will only pull date information from 08/13/2013. This also means that these worksheets have yet to be completed and therefore do not exist in the update folder until the plants post them.

Find Date Range Based On Value In Cells?

May 14, 2012

I have one excel sheet. In the first column there are various Project Codes and in the first row there are various date. Cells in the matrix contains 0 or 1 value. If value is equals to 1 that means the project was on hold during this months and if the cell value is null of 0 (Zero) it means the project was active. For a project in a particular row there are several times a project went on hold and now I want a date range showing the project's hold duration. If project went on hold more than one time the result should also give different range for each time when project went on hold.
