Function To Get Full Path Of Workbook In Cell?

Oct 26, 2011

The folder which contains the Excel file I'm working on is

C:Usersar3DocumentsKey Performance Indicators

however if I place =INFO("directory") in a cell I get

Is there a function where I can get the full path of the workbook in the cell?

Select A File And Get Full Path

Jan 10, 2014

I'm wondering what is the syntax to open a msoFileDialog box and select a file, resulting in setting a variable to the entire file path. If I use

msoFileDialogFilePicker

I'll only get the file name, without the path. I'd like to get the full path ending in the file name.

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only

Sep 27, 2006

I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...

I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...

How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...

An example of "DestFile" might be;
S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls
(the file name length may vary)
What code can I use to consistently trim it back to;
S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction
as the "DestFldr" variable?

I then import this into Excel see tab Raw Data

Has someone already done this before and got the code, or can someone point me in the right direction on how to arrive at the finished data?

Show Full File Path Ignoring Drive Letter

May 2, 2014

I am trying to allow users to select a file, and then the file name/ the file path / and date are added.

Right now, all those functions work in the following code, but the file path shows up as a letter drive. As there could be upwards of 50 people using this file and the mapped drive could be different, i wanted the full path to be displayed.

Code:
Private Sub File_1_overwrite_Click()

Dim filename As Variant
Dim filename1 As Variant

filename = Application.GetOpenFilename(, , "Select Programme")
filename1 = filename
filename1 = Mid(filename, InStrRev(filename, "") + 1)
File_1_link = filename
file_1_name = filename1
File_1_date = Format(Date, "MM/DD/YY")

Excel 2010 :: Searching A Folder For A Keyword And Returning The Full Path?

Jun 19, 2013

My Excel 2010 spreadsheet contains client data like the below:

A
B
C
D
E

What I'm trying to get from this is a personally addressed email with 2 attachments, one will be standard to all recipients and one will be unique and specific to that recipient. The filename of the unique attachment will contain the reference but will have some other stuff in the filename as well on either side that I will not be able to remove.

In terms of the file locations the unique ones will be in subfolders of the folder holding this workbook and the generic one will be in the same folder as the this workbook.This is some adapted code that solved a similar problem (in Excel 2007 though) on a different website.

VB:
Sub Mail_Report()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object [code]....

In that case the file started with the "reference" field but in my case it is in the middle and the formats vary depending on the provider, there will only be a maximum of 5 providers but I would like to avoid 5 different macros if at all possible so I need a search function of some sort.

Cell Value Of Closed Workbook With Concatenated File Path In Cells

Sep 24, 2007

I have a report that is collated from several other workbooks. The source workbooks follow the same naming convention throughout the year and so I have managed to concatenate the file path to bring through the text of the filepath and cell reference however cannot work out how to get the value of the cell. For example, I have the file path in A1, file name in B1 and sheet and cell referernce in C1.

I am using {=(A1&B1&C1)} which gives me R:CONFIDENTIALREPORT FOLDER[REPORT 24.09.07.xls]Sheet1!$D$1. To make matters slightly more difficult, the source reports would be closed. Is there an easy way or am I going to have to do this in VBA.

Macro To Copy Folders To Path Of Open Workbook Based On Cell Values

Aug 3, 2014

I have an Excel sheet that contains a few thousand folder paths in the first column. The first few cells in the column look similar to below.

C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010360
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010361
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010362
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010363
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010364
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010365

I am trying to create a macro that will copy any folders that exist in any of the paths listed in the first column. The folders should be copied to the path of the open workbook containing the macro. Below is the macro I have currently, much of which was taken from information I found in this thread [URL]....

VB:

Sub wrapper3()
x = 1
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
While Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1) <> ""
v = InStrRev(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), "")
dest = ActiveWorkbook.Path & Mid(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), v, 99)

[Code]...

This code seems to work fine if all of the folders exist to be copied. My problem is that some do not and it is creating a "Path Not Found" error for which I need a fix. If the folder doesn't exist at the path nothing should be copied and the next path can be evaluated.

Open Workbook Where Named Cell Contain Name & Path, Copy Range And Paste Values

May 19, 2009

I am successfully opening a .csv file using a variable value stored in a named range in my Main file (the variable includes the directory and path).
I copy data from the .csv file to the Main file then I need to close the .csv file without saving but I want to do that by using the

Windows("xxxx").Activate

command where "xxxx" is the namedrange in my Main file which stores the .csv filename (without the directory and path prefix).

I can use the

ActiveWindow.ActivatePrevious

command but if I have another workbook open, this one closes instead of the .csv file I opened from the macro.

I realise this is probably very basic and I've searched the forums but can't find any identical postings.

File Path Function Not Updating

Custom Function Preceded With Add-in Path

Aug 6, 2007

I have created an addin (myAddin.xla) with custom functions in it. In a given cell, my funtion would look something like "=myCustomFunction(A1, B5)".

Periodically, while I'm working with the spreadsheet, I'll do something to a cell and the formulas in all the cells which used a custom function immediately get reset to something along the lines of "=C:...Application DataMicrosoftAddInsmyAddin.xla'!myCustomFunction(A1, B5)". The reset function also causes the function not to work properly and I get a "#NAME?" error in the cell.

I haven't yet figured out what sequence of actions causes the reset (it happens infrequently, but often enough to be a major problem) but it happens while I'm working with the document (i.e., it doesn't seem to be linked to saving/closing/reopening/etc). After I notice the reset, if I go to each cell that uses a custom function and delete everything from "C:... to myAddin.xla!" in the formula bar and hit enter, the function works normally as before.

(Technically, my Windows XP Pro system uses synchronization with a server at work, so the file path is not "C:...Application DataMicrosoftAddInsmyAddin.xla'!" but rather "\myServerNamemyDirectoryDocuments and SettingsmyUserNameApplicationDataMicrosoftAddInsmyAddin.xla'!". I'm not sure if this reset error has anything to do with being connected to the server or not, but figured I'd mention it anyway.)

Workbook.Path Format

Aug 4, 2006

I have a very basic cut copy and paste macro in a workbook (ThisWorkbook) that fails when it reaches the line :

Workbooks.Open Filename:=ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & DataWbk, UpdateLinks:=3

When i hover over this line it states the actual (and correct) path of the workbooks that the macro is relevant to, but the error says the path is unrecognisable.

However, in other similar macros that i have that work ok, when i hover over this line it states : <Object variable or With block variable not set>.

Is there any way that i can set the 'ThisWorkbook.Path' to read this? To my knowledge i have not recorded these two macros differently, yet they are producing these contrasting results.

How To Copy Module(s) To Workbook In Different Path

Jun 21, 2013

Want to Copy a Module(s) to another workbook in a different path and also password protect it at the same time using VBA.

I need to copy some Module(s) from One WorkBook to another using VBA..

I have used the following code to good effect, however my TargetWb is not at the same path, so I need some modification in this code if that's possible and also this VBA Module which is Copied and Pasted in the Target WOrkbook needs to be Password Protected so that it cannot be tampered.

The code which I'm using currently is:

Code:

Sub CopyModule(SourceWB As Workbook, strModuleName As String, _
TargetWB As Workbook)
' copies a module from one workbook to another
' example:
' CopyModule Workbooks("Book1.xls"), "Module1", _

[Code]...

Code:

Sub Try()
Call CopyModule(Activeworkbook, "Module1", TargetWb)

on this to pass the TargetWb as a variable which can be generated in the code used for generating the File using a Macro..

End Sub

In the above code The SourceWB would be the ActiveWorkbook and the Target Workbook is the file created using another Macro from several sheets of the Active Workbook and its created in a folder with a specific name and therefore the Path is one more level inside than the Active Workbook.

if the Transferred Module can be Passworrd Protected and Locked for editing..for the end user.

Show Workbook Location & Path

Jan 10, 2008

Is there a way to display the location of an active workbook on my local drive and save it into a varible. I'm new to Excel and VBA but I'm trying to create a template to use for multiple vehicles. When the macro is run...

1) the workbook will have to identify what Workbook and worksheet it is in and save it as a varible so that it can access it later. Each workbook is specific to a vehicle.
*(The reason is because I will need to refer to the address of the original workbook when pasting the copied data from the "OilChart" Workbook.)

2) Copy the vehicle identification # and save as a varible. (Dim vehicleNumber As Variant)

3) Open another workbook on the local drive (OilChart.xls)

4) Run the macro in the new workbook (OilChart.xls) to update the data

5) Search Column B in (OilChart.xls) for matches of the vehicleNumber, and for all rows that match, select and copy all rows and paste it back into the orig workbook (Vehicle Specific Workbook).

This is the code I have so far.

Private Sub btnFind_Click()

Dim vehicleNumber As Variant
Dim sourceLocation As String
Dim sourceFileName As String
Dim fileName As String
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

I have'nt figured out how to do step 5 yet so if anybody has any ideas I'd be open to them. I tried looking at Aaron Bloods Kickbutt VBA Find Function but I got a little lost on how his code would relate to my code. It also looks like it doesn't copy or paste anything to another workbook.

Get Relative File Path Of Workbook

Feb 16, 2008

I work on multiple workbooks. They all calculate a lot of functions and I am forced to create multiple workbooks to do these calculations. Linking to other workbooks basically displays the results of workbook1 and works from there.

But...

I need to keep an overview of these files, so I store them in different folders all within the same 'master' folder. So let's say: master folder is FolderMaster, and this contains folderA, folderB, folderC. FolderA contains workbookA1, workbookA2; folderB contains workbookB1, workbookC2 and finally folderC contains workbookC1 and workbookC2.

Suppose that this hierarchy might change. Moving eg workbook A2 to folderB. This would cause a #REF if it is linked in another workbook.

So I thought: organize your hierarchy in a 'master workbook' and store all paths to the individual files in a worksheet. If I link to a specific folder I do not directly link to the actual folder, but would use INDIRECT and grab the filepath from the masterworkbook. If the path to a workbook change I do not have to update all individual links, but only change the path in the masterworkbook. Right?

But 'how' is the big one here. How do you formulate your path to a file? It can not be the entire file path since that's variable... (sometimes 'hd:User1:....'; sometimes 'HD:User2'..."). So I think I need something as mentioned in this office help thing. But I have no clue. I do not want to use VBA, I hoped for another solution to this.

Find Path To Template That A Workbook Is Based On

Aug 18, 2006

If you have a workbook or a template open you can find out the full path of the file from the .FullPath property. My problem is that when a user double-clicks my .xlt file (to create a new workbook based on it), I want the code in the Workbook_Open event to be able to tell the full path of the template it was created from (because the code will later go on to save the new workbook under a date related filename in the same directory that the template was located in). I haven't been able to find a property that gives me any clue as to the location of the template this new workbook is based on.
