When I noticed that FileSearch was missing after I updated to Office 2007, I decided to recreate the class and save it as a file to import anytime I needed to use it. I tried to use as little code as possible, so if there is some property you would need to add then you may have to add it yourself, but this will at least give you most of the funcitonality of the original Class without having to update your existing code too much.
You have to just reference the class and then it can still be used in a with block or however you are accustomed. Here are the two class files that I have, the first I named FileSearch (go figure):
Dim pLookIn As String
Dim pSearchSubFolders As Boolean
Dim pFileName As String
Public FoundFiles As New Collection
Public Property Get LookIn() As String
LookIn = pLookIn
Public Property Let LookIn(value As String)
pLookIn = value
Public Property Get SearchSubFolders() As Boolean
LookIn = pSearchSubFolders...................................
Before upgrade to Microsoft 2007 this code worked well (for 3 years). I marked it well with big space & comment where it gets hung up. The line says: With Application.Filesearch. All is well up to that point. I have another program that seems to have a problem when it comes to "With Application" as well. It must have to do with the upgrade, because my programs have been used daily, and it was right after the upgrade that it got buggy. All of the users were upgraded to Microsoft 2007 at the same time.

I have a macro running in Excel 2003 that uses application.filesearch. I discovered through another post that this is not included in Excel 2007. A replacement was suggested and I cannot get it to work. Can someone show me how to replace application.filesearch in my macro with the replacement code? I'm a real novice and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Or if you have a better solution I'm open for that as well.
Here's the original that works in 2003, the suggested replacement code will follow.
Sub GoGetData() Dim lCount As Long Dim wbResults As Workbook Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook
Sub CombineWBs() Dim wb As Workbook Dim newWB As Workbook Dim i As Long
On Error Resume Next
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Budget" .Execute Set wb = Workbooks.Open(.FoundFiles(1)) RenameWS wb wb.Worksheets.Copy Set newWB = ActiveWorkbook wb.Close SaveChanges:=False For i = 2 To .FoundFiles.Count Set wb = Workbooks.Open(.FoundFiles(i)) RenameWS wb wb.Worksheets.Copy After:=newWB.Worksheets(newWB.Worksheets.Count)
I have a macro that searches through a certain location for Excel files. The program and files were made in Office 2003. When another user runs the macro in Office 2007, the files are not recognized or the macro does not search, I'm not sure. Either way, the files are never located in their folder location. Any thoughts or ways around this?? The top part of the code is posted below,
Do With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch 'Change path to suit .LookIn = "C:Documents" .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks '.Filename = " Book*.xls"
If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbooks in folder For lCount = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count ' Loop through all. 'Open Workbook x and Set a Workbook variable to it Set wbResults = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=.FoundFiles(lCount), UpdateLinks:=0)
I have a piece of code that was written by someone else (namely Phil_V, from these very forums) that only works in versions of Excel before 2007. I was just hoping that someone could update the code for me?
I know it's a lot to ask, but I simply don't have the expertise to do it myself I really appreciate any help received.
I wrote a macro to list all the excel files from a directory and its sub-directories to an excel sheet. It is working in excel 2003 but shows error (object does not support this action) in 2007. Actually I have copied almost this entire macro from excel 2007 help only. Can somebody modify this to use in both the versions of excel?
In the following thread, richphillips wonders about Application.Filesearch Application.filesearch In Office 2007
Is there a replacement for this? I have several macros that use Application.Filesearch and I would like it to work not only with Excel 2003 but also with Excel 2007. This is the function
Function CreateFileList(FileFilter As String, _ IncludeSubFolder As Boolean) As Variant ' returns the full filename for files matching ' the filter criteria in the current folder Dim FileList() As String, FileCount As Long CreateFileList = "" Erase FileList If FileFilter = "" Then FileFilter = "*.*" ' all files Debug.Print CurDir strFolder = BrowseForFolderShell(, , , 0) If strFolder = "" Then MsgBox "You Cancelled" Exit Function End If............
Found code to find files and return results.. edited to my liking(barely.. i have no VBA knowledge).. it works on the PC I use. This is intended to be on a shared folder across a network for others to use, and it is not returning any results on the other PCs. This computer has Office 2003.. the rest have 2000. I can NOT figure out the problem. I have read in searches that Application.Filesearch is not reliable, but I do not know how to change it to any other type of coding Attachment 26214
Sub SrchForMSDS() Dim i As Long, z As Long, Rw As Long Dim ws As Worksheet Dim y As Variant Dim Fil As String, FPath As String y = Application.InputBox("Search for file(s) named:", "MSDS Search") If y = False And Not TypeName(y) = "String" Then Exit Sub Application. ScreenUpdating = False With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "\My-SbscompanyMSDS Database" ' \#.#.#.#companyMSDS Databse or My-Sbs .SearchSubFolders = True .Filename = y................
I was using the following macro on Excel 2000, 2002 & 2003 for many years without a fuss. Recently, I upgraded to Excel 2007. When I run the macro now, I get the following error message:- Run-time error 445 Object doesn't support this action.
Sub test() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Documents and SettingsDesktopCommercial Database" .SearchSubFolders = True .Filename = "*.*" .TextOrProperty = "BANK" .MatchAllWordForms = True .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles If .Execute() > 0 Then MsgBox "There were " & .FoundFiles.Count & _ " file(s) found." End If End With End Sub
Additional info:- The 1st line of my code which is With Application.FileSearch is highlighted in yellow when I run this macro.
I am trying to use a sub to count files that some one has helpd me out with in the past. It was working but for some reason now it is not. I always have 0 returned as the number of files in the selected location (SourcePath), which is a filthy lie as there are files in there. The idea is that all .xls and all .xml files are deleted, and then if the folder is empty, that is also deleted, but as the Count_Files sub is always returning 0 the code is trying to delete the folder, which causes an error as it has files in it.
I can't seem to find Zip Files with FileSearch..I'm trying to search for and copy specific zip files from my temporary internet files folder to another folder. But it doesn't find them. It works with any other type of file. But it just won't find Zip files. And it's not because it's the temporary internet files folder, because it finds OTHER typs of files in the same folder, just not zip files.
I Have also tried using "*.zip" - Does not find any files, when I know they are there. And Have tried "*.*" DOES find hundreds of files... I have also tried serching in a Standard Non Sytem Non Hidden Type of folder. DOES NOT find zip files.
Even more maddening, It worked yesterday.....I already tried system restore.
Sub testing2() Call GetFromTemp("Filename.zip") End Sub
Public Function GetFromTemp(Fname As Variant) Dim i 'Copies Downloaded Zip file from Temporary Internet Files to Downloaded Database FilesTemp 'Fname is Filename.zip you want to search for in Temporary Internet Files
I understand that Microsoft left Filesearch out of VBA for Office 2007 because it was buggy. Sadly, however, I still need it. It would help if they placed a comment in VBA help that stated that it was discontinued. As it is, they make it look as if Filesearch is still available for use. OK, I'll stop ranting now.
After reading several earlier posts, apparently I have to use the Dir function. I learn visually and cannot figure out how to use the function from the VBA help file since there are no examples. Does anyone have an example of code using the Dir function to insert filenames in an array? Once I see the code, I'm sure I can adapt it to suit my needs.
I have created a macro that must extract data from other workbook. It opens the workbook, with an exist, and isopened control, and then open it. It´s running well, but i found while making another macro, that if the file direction is "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls", then i cant run the exist control. Next you have the code im using. In the first version, i had .LookIn = ThisWorkbook.Path. Now I´ve tried:
1. Dont put .LookIn, and fName is "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls" 2. .LookIn = "http://www.xxx.com:8080/" .FileName = "Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls"
Both are failing, it says, the file doesnt exist. If i try directly WorkBooks.Open "http://www.xxx.com:8080/Challange%20Cost%20Proposal%20Sheet.xls", it opens correctly, but i would have a control, because the original file name could change, and the macro would crash if does.
Function OpenWorkBook(fName) As Integer If Exists(fName) Then If (IsOpen(fName) = False) Then Workbooks.Open (fName) OpenWorkBook = True Else MsgBox "The WorkBook " & originWorkBookName & " is already open." OpenWorkBook = -1 End If Else.........................
It seems to me that Application.FileSearch is not working with XP SP3.
I have a code that used Application.FileSearch and it works perfectly at home. But when I use in the office, it does not work. When I click on HELP menu, the one in the office has a Microsoft Excel 2003 SP3 whereas the one at my home does not have the SP3.
I'm trying to use Application.FileSearch in a procedure to open files in a folder one by one and then do some stuff. It works fine when I developed it on my Windows machine but won't work on the Mac platform. The culprit instruction seems to be the
Application.FileSearch instruction, and I've also tried what I think may be a Mac equivalent Application.FileFind, but I get the 'Object doesn't support this action' error.
So I wrote a simple procedure below just to test the .FileSearch instruction but this fails in the same way.
Any ideas anyone? I've commented out lines which relate to Windows syntax.
I need to be able to open a filenamed in the following format.
However the lsat part of the string is dyanmic and works with one business days lag (hence format sheet (date, "yyyymmdd") ) is not approriate. i also have the problem that that MS Excel does not have a holiday calendar (so this would not work over bank holidays/easte/exmas ect). The folder also contains archived files as below.
I am using the following to compile data into a master workbook
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = SrchDir .SearchSubFolders = False .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks .LastModified = msoLastModifiedAnyTime .Filename = "*.xls" If .Execute > 0 Then For Each vaFileName In .FoundFiles ' If vaFileName = Exclude Then GoTo n ' maybe something like this ? ProcessData vaFileName n: Next
and then processing each file, and adding it to the master. This is run every time a user opens the workbook. The number of workbooks in this folder is fairly large and more are added every day. What I would like to do is, compile a list of file names that have already been processed (I can handle that part) and then exclude them the next time the master book compiles from that folder. so if the master was run September 16th, all the data up to that point is already in the master and a list of those files is on a sheet in the book, now if the book is opened again on October 1st, it will look at the list first and only add the data from Sept. 17th through Oct 1st.
The file names I'm dealing with are named by date ie: 9-16-06.xls. The folder they're in is on a server so I can't just kill the directory after processing so that only new files are there, other people may need access to them. I think this may be handled at the "If Execute > 0" part of the code but am not adept enough to know how to do it. Possibly set "Execute" as a variant and have it cycle through the list
I've been trying to get this to function correctly. The following code does pull out a list of all filepaths, but what I want to to is access the properties of the file.
Basically I select a customer from a combo box, and from this the code does a vlookup to determine what folder the reports are stored in. The list is then entered onto the worksheet 'FilesInReportFolder'. There is some commented out code as I've ben trying to come up with a simple way to remove the 'xls' from the end of the string, but din't worry about that.
I've found a website that suggests adding .name to the lineto get the name instead of the path, but what I really want is be able to pull out other details about the file.
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Combobox1value = ComboBox1.Value
Dim rng As Range Dim RowNo As Integer Dim NoOfFiles As Integer Dim foundfilepath As Integer Dim FilePath As String
I am attempting to write a macro that will open every file in a given folder, then save the files with a new file names while keeping the original file extension. The files I'm opening with excel have file extensions of ".VA", ".TOU", and ".KVA". The new file names I want to save the files with are contained in cell A1.
An example would be: The excel macro opens file "R003890.TOU" The macro assigns a the value in cell "A1" (B1040) to a variable The macro assigns the file extension (.TOU) to a variable The macro saves the file as file name variable and file extension variable (B1040.TOU)
I have been trying to process Excel files in a directory with the following
Sub FindExcelFiles() Dim foldername As String Dim FSO As Object Dim fldr As Object Dim file As Object Dim cnt As Long foldername = "c:usersseagreendesktopTuesdayFeb102009week ending feb 7 2009 esting2" Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject") Set fldr = FSO.GetFolder(foldername) For Each file In fldr.Files If file.Type Like "*Microsoft Office Excel*" Then cnt = cnt + 1 End If Application.StatusBar = "Now working on " & ActiveWorkbook.FullName DoSomething ActiveWorkbook Next file Set file = Nothing Set fldr = Nothing Set FSO = Nothing Range("A1").Value = cnt End Sub Here's the stub for the subroutine that's being called:
Sub DoSomething(inBook As Workbook) 'Massage each workbook 'Debug.Print "Hello" Debug.Print ActiveWorkbook.FullName End Sub I am using Excel 2007. I found out I cannot use Application.Filesearch as Microsoft has dropped this method for 2007. My problem now is that I just see "Now working on c:usersseagreendesktopTuesdayFeb102009week ending feb 7 2009 esting2file1.xls written six times in the immediate window.
