Get Full Address Of External File By Specifying Filename And Then Evaluate

Jan 9, 2014

I'm really looking for a way to get the full address of the external file by specifying the file name in a cell and then evaluate the formula. For example,

[Code] .....

is the full address of the source file called 'Source'. My idea is: if I just type the file name 'Source' in a workbook's cell $A$1, and in cell $B$1 I want to make the formula something like:

="C:Users["&$A$1&".xlsx]Sheet1'!$F$1"

This will make my project very impressive with this feature: a user just types the file name to establish the link and evaluate the formula for results.

Concatenate Cells To Produce Full Postal Address

Feb 7, 2009

I am trying to simplify the manipulation of data to create a full postal address from a range of cells.

Due to the varied way in which postal addresses are made up, I have found it necessary to create a 2nd Worksheet, which uses helper columns to ensure that spaces and commas appear in the right places.

I recently came across some code on this site from JBeaucaire which I have tried out but in my particular workbook, the commas and spaces do not come out correctly.

The enclosed sample workbook contains a selection of addresses which should cover most of the variations for addresses in the way that they are entered in my main workbook.

Sheet1 (Master) is the main data.
Sheet2 shows the formulas that I have used to create a full postal address.
Sheet3 makes use of a VBA Module and shows the results.

I felt that VBA code is the right way to go but I'm unable to modify the code to make it work or come up with an alternative VBA solution.

Moving Columns Of Data Into Another File And Saving File With New Filename?

Aug 30, 2013

I was wondering if there is a way to write a macro that will take an excel file that I have called Alldata and then have it copy the first two sheets to a new workbook named something else( FullSparameter_0) and then copy the name of the third and fourth sheet into the new FullSparameter_0 workbook and then copy column A-E from sheet dB Alldata.xls and paste it into the FullSparameter_0.xls workbook in the same dB sheet in the same spot. And do the same thing with the Phase Sheet. i know this sounds confusing, but im really new to the VBA stuff.

I just need 15 different files from the original Alldata.xls that will be named FullSparameter_0, FullSparameter_1, .., FullSparameter_14. but each file will have the same two first sheets, Setup Information and Cal Verification, and the same last two sheet names, dB and Phase, but then in the dB and phase sheets, it will copy over the next four columns of data. so in FullSparameter_0 it will have column A-E from sheet dB in Alldata.xls in the dB sheet in FullSparameter_0 (Same with the Phase Sheets). Then in FullSparameter_1 it will have column A and Columns F,G,H and I (for dB and Phase). In fullSparameter_2 it will have column A and then J,K,L and M. Each FullSparameter_X will have the exact same first two sheets and then the other columns for the last two sheets will be pasted into columns A-E in dB and Phase.

Record Filename And Creation Date Of File Used In Another File

Mar 21, 2014

I have a template file that I import data in to, which is then saved with the current date. This works, but I want to automate the import of the data, but ensure I don't duplicate the load.
Therefore, I have a tab 'FileLog' that I record the filename (variable by date) in column A and Creation timestamp in column B.

How do I obtain the filename and creation timestamp of the import data so that they can be entered?

External File(s) Referenced And File Links Change Based On Row Cell

Oct 22, 2009

I have attached the file I am working on. I am attempting to create a link to an external file based on the value of cells in column A. Then I would like to simply copy the formula down, lets say in Column B, the rows and as I do the external file reference will change depending on the value within the cell in Column A. I hope that I am making sense.

I am using Windows Vista with Excel 2007. The files will all be within the same file folder, however, there are hundereds of files so I won't be able to open them all for the indirect to work.

Get Data From Cells In External File - File Name Changes Daily

Aug 1, 2014

I have a file that gives some statistical data to my co-workers every 15 minutes. A common question I get is "How does that compare to last week?" Then I have to open the file from 7 days ago, find the data from the same time interval, and subtract it from this week's number in my head. I'd like to have excel do this for me.

I know how to get data from an external file. The problem is, these files are named with a date on the end of the file name. So tomorrow, the static formula won't work anymore (or rather, it will give data for a file from 8 days ago, instead of 7). I'd like to excel to use today's date, find the file from 7 days ago, and get the data from that file to compare to the current file.

Here's what I've done so far:

Code:
ThisDate = Range("C1").Value 'the cell with todays date in it
ThisDateName = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'now formatted the way I need it
ThisDate7 = Range("G1").Value 'the cell with the date 7 days ago
ThisDateName7 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'formatted correctly
ThisDate14 = Range("G2").Value 'the cell with the date 14 days ago
ThisDateName14 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'you know, in case of a holiday 7 days ago

I have no clue what to do next. I want Excel to: Use "ThisDateName7" to find the file with the name "pph_tracker_[ThisDateName7].xlsm"Get data from a cell in that file (say, C15)Subtract it from the data in the same cell (C15) in today's file (this week - last week)Give me the result in today's file (say in cell C20)Do that again for cells D15, E15, and so on (result in D20, E20, etc)

I assume I can figure out the rest from there. Can I use the variable names in an actual formula in cell C20? Something like:

=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{ThisDateName7}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
or even
=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{The Date in Cell $G$1}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
which would require no macros at all!

Formula To External File, Requires File To Be Open

Jun 12, 2006

I've got a couple of formulas in a workbook which lookup values in another workbook. When I reopen the initial workbook the formulas results come back as errors (i.e. #VALUE!) unless the workbook it is looking at is also open. This is not desirable, does anyway know how I can lookup values in another workbook which are not open? The formula which is causing me problems is as follows:

= SUMIF( 'H:Infozoom[2006-01_assy.xls]New Table1'!$F:$F,$A8,'H:Infozoom[2006-01_assy.xls]New Table1'!$AH:$AH)/60

File Download Without Knowing The Full Url (only Indirect Url Available)

Aug 13, 2008

have a link such as www.abc.se/downloadfile?file=12345. When opening this link in a browser the DownloadFile window popups and the file can be downloaded.

I would like to be able to download the file without involving the DownloadFile pop up (since some users have auto open enabled thus the downloadfile pop-up is not always shown)

I have tried URLDownloadToCacheFile and similiar methods but they fail as they dont have the direct link to the file.

So my question now is how can I extract the direct url?

There should be a way to capture it since it will be used in the downloadfile dialog.

Copy A File By Specifying A Partial Filename

Oct 7, 2008

I'm attempting to copy some files into an archive folder in the same main folder. These files appear weekly in a folder that contains numerous other files.

Each of these files has a filename such as:

RAH_MRL_TOP_40_(ddmmyy_TIME)

with time being the time that the report was run.

Every week the filename stays the same but the time and date changes. I was hoping to be able to simply use the "Filecopy" command and specify the source file with a "*" after the main file name. However this does not seem to work.

Is there a simple way to do this? (I dont want more than a few lines of coding really as I will be duplicating it for each file and then changing the file name as needed.

Corrupt File: Filename.xls Cannot Be Opened

Apr 18, 2006

I was working on a tax file yesturday, just a long long list of receipts. and the file is password protected. However, I went to open it today, and I get a message that says: "Filename.xls cannot be opened. the file may be read only, or you may be trying to access a read only location. Or, the server the file is located on may not be responding."

It's on my USB Drive. I've tried copying it to my HD so I can play with a copy, but no dice. When I try that, I get another error message, : Cannot copy Filename.xls. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I've tried the various fixed suggested in the excel help files to no avail. I did a search on the forum, but didn't find anything that seemed to apply or help me. The computer I'm trying to open it on has Office 2003, the one I most recently worked on the file on has office XP. Not sure if this was a source of the problem. Doesn't seem like it should be. Hasn't been in the past. I'm not even getting to the dialogue box asking for my password yet.

Dim A Filename: Pass The Name Of File To A Dimmed Value

Apr 17, 2007

I have a file (I'll call it 'Template' where I am extracting data into a new workbook. I refer back to my Template in my code, but I have now come across an issue. I will save the template using different country names, for example, if I am populating it with UK data, I will call it 'Template - UK'. In my code, how do I pass the name of this file to a dimmed value. So If i have the template - Uk open, can I pass the filename onto a dimmed value? So instead of having

Windows("template - UK").Activate

I want to have something along the lines of (although I tried this way but it didn't work):

Dim template As String
template = Application. ActiveWorkbook
Windows(template).Activate

Show Full File Path Ignoring Drive Letter

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.

filename = Application.GetOpenFilename(, , "Select Programme")
filename1 = filename
filename1 = Mid(filename, InStrRev(filename, "") + 1)

VBA Code To Generate Filename Without Actually Saving File

Jan 23, 2014

I have a file that I want to name based on content in certain cells. I.e. "Q-(text from cell G1)-(text from cell B7)-Date(mm_dd_yy)". I want to be able to specify the location where I save this file each time I try to save it, but I want it to update the file's name if any of the parameters have changed.

I have some code generated that does just about everything right except that it automatically saves a version of the file in the folder where the original is located even though it also brings up the dialog box and allows me to save it in another location.

Basically, I want to fix the code below so that it doesn't save what appears to be a backup file each time. Should I be using some sort of savecopyas?

Code:
Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
'Add the quote # to the header
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightHeader = "Quote No. " & Range("G1").Value

Opening File Paths Where Filename Will Vary

Feb 4, 2014

I'm trying to write code that will open files within a specific folder. However, the end of each filename is going to vary over time to the point that I'll never be able to predict the exact filename.

Is it possible to write something like:

Code:

Where the "xxxx" signifies the variable element of the file name that could be any four characters? Failing that, is there a similar possible alternative?
