Opening A File Without Opening A Workbook

Apr 17, 2007

I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.

This is the path:

So the command is this:
Workbooks.Open [url]

Links are not actual links

So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.

Sumproduct Trouble

Jun 5, 2009

I am a Project Manager, Surveyor involved in new ships building. I have to control and report the budget and actual hours every month and at the end of the project. I need to calculate the sum of the actually spent hours for the inspections done every month and send them to our head office. I use SUMPRODUCT function but Excel displays #VALUE! error eventhough there are no cells used in the formula which contain text!

The formula in E11 = SUMPRODUCT(--(MONTH(E2:E8)=MONTH(E10)),--(YEAR(E2:E8)=YEAR(E10)),H2:H8). E2:E8 and E10 are formated as a date. I tested all of them with ISNUMBER and the result is TRUE!!! Is there other formula I can use for the intended purpose?..............

Should Be Easy, Having Trouble

May 18, 2006

I'm having real trouble selecting a series of rows based on variables for the purpose of cutting them and pasting them elsewhere in the spreadsheet. For example, if this is my spreadsheet

2 I Hate
3 Bill
4 O'Reilly

I want my code to select the range of 2:4, cut them, and paste them elsewhere but I want 2:4 to be variables. For example

Fun = 2
Stuff = 4


But doing "Rows(Fun:Stuff).Select" does not work at all. If you do Rows(Fun).Select, this works to select Row 2, but I can not use the variables to select a range.

Opening A File ...

Sep 18, 2008

I am trying to do something simple but not quite sure how to do it. I am using the GetImportFileName and then selecting information of one sheet from that file and copying to another workbook. I need to know how to then get back to the file I have opened to search the next sheet and so on. The problem I have is with this line.


Sub GetImportFileName()
Dim Finfo As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant

' Set up list of file filters
Finfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"

' Display *.* by default
FilterIndex = 5

' Set the dialog box caption
Title = "Select a file to Import"

' Get the Filename
FileName = Application.GetOpenFilename(Finfo, FilterIndex, Title)

' Open the Filename
Workbooks.Open FileName

End Sub

Opening A Powerpoint File

Sep 22, 2008

I have some VBA code that allows the user to open a linked powerpoint presentation from an Excel workbook. It works well but it does not ask the the user to update links so if the Excel book has changed the powerpoint stays the same. I am very new to VBA so I tend to copy things that work but don't always know why! Anyone out there know how to get it to update links automatically or at least ask the user to do so? Here is the code:

Opening File With Dated Name Each Day?

Oct 20, 2009

I would like to open a certain file everyday. However each day this file is created and named with the date, for example Production_FixYYYYMMDD.csv, in VBA how do I accomplish this? The alternative I could think of is to create a .bat file to copy that file over to a separate directory and rename it Production_Fix.csv and just use that, but if that batch file fails to run that would cause issues.

File In XLSTART Not Opening

Dec 29, 2009

Any idea why a file in my XLSTART folder does not open when I start Excel?

I had a cell in a file (not one of the files in XLSTART folder) that was refered to by thousands of other cells. I clicked on Trace Dependents and Excel then spent the next 10 minutes trying to point to all the cells. I eventually gave up and used the Windows Task Manager to close Excel. Ever since then Excel doesn't open 1 of the 3 files I have in the XLSTART folder.

Opening Large File

Feb 4, 2009

I have a 14.3 MB xlsb file that I am trying to open with no success as it just hangs. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the data out of there? I would like to be able to get the data to a pivot and copy the pivot to another file to try and reduce the load on one file. I tried to import to Access but was told I was using a file version before 2007, which is impossible since it is a xlsb file.

Personal File Not Opening

Jun 6, 2006

I am having a problem that shouldn't be that hard to fix, but I can't seem to figure it out. I have a file in the xlstart folder, called "personal.xls" with macros in it. The security level is at low, it isn't on the disabled list, and it won't automatically open when excel opens. If I double click on it, it opens. It just won't open when excel is first started. Is there any way to correct this?

I tried consolidate, and messed around with pivot tabels but it didnt seem to be what i'm looking for.

File Linked To Access Database

Jul 10, 2009

I have created a 'price list' database in ACCESS. Then in EXCEL I created a pivot table which retrieves data from one of the database queries (the query was saved as a .dqy file).

I emailed the file containing the pivot table to a colleague who is on the same server. He saved the excel file on he desktop & renamed it. When I update the databse file on a shared public drive on the server, he is able to 'refresh' his desktop file successfully !!

Exporting Excel File To Access Via ADO?

Feb 14, 2012

I have about 180 Excel files (each one with 51 columns and around 30,000 rows) that need to be exported to an Access table.I'm using the routine below which is extremely time-consuming. I'm sure there is a better way to export an excel file to an Access table.

Sub ExportHistData()
Dim rst As Object
Dim cn As Object
Dim i As Long
Dim lstCell As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lstCell = [a65536].End(xlUp).Row
If lstCell = 1 Then Exit Sub

File Access Control Using Range

Jun 29, 2012

I have sheet where I need to restrict access to a select group of individuals. I have a formula in a select case statement that runs from the workbook_open event and have hard coded the names of the individuals who can access the file. If they are not on the list, they are prompted for a password. This works OK, but I have sheet that is hidden and want to maintain the list of users there and update the code to loop through the values in a named range. I have a snippet of the current code below.

Select Case function_name
Case Is = "user1"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Is = "user2"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Is = "user3"
Run "enable_access_code"
Case Else
' User not authorized or opened while not on company network
' Prompt for project password
End Select

Opening Workbook With Code

Nov 8, 2012

Why can't I get this code to work? The first line seems to work ok but not yet sure as the rest doen't work.

I have tried NEXT_YEAR as a string and as a number but I keep getting an error.

Sub test()
NEXT_YEAR = "2013"
ChDir "J:Maxtor backupFire DeptVacations " & NEXT_YEAR
Workbooks.Open(Filename:= _
"J:Maxtor backupFire DeptVacations " & NEXT_YEAR "VacGrp - 1 - " & NEXT_YEAR & ".xls""", UpdateLinks _
:=3).RunAutoMacros Which:=xlAutoOpen
End sub

Below is the code I am trying to replace and it works fine.

ChDir "J:Maxtor backupFire DeptVacations 2013"
Workbooks.Open(Filename:= _
"J:Maxtor backupFire DeptVacations 2013VacGrp - 1 - 2013.xls", UpdateLinks _

VBA Code For Opening / Importing?

Jun 27, 2013

I have a workbook with a button that will run a macro to open files and import sheets based on if the user checked the box. Everything works perfectly EXCEPT for the importing of the sheets from newly opened workbook.

Here is what I want the code to do:

1. if the box is checked then open the file
2. Copy (import) the first sheet in the newly opened workbook and put it before the 1st sheet.
3. Close the workbook that the sheet was copied from and do not save changes
4. active the workbook that has the newly imported sheet.

And here is what i have thus far:

Sub OpenFiles()
Dim Folderpath As String
Dim cell As Range
Dim r, LRow As Single
Dim Dbook As Workbook
Set Dbook = ActiveWorkbook


After stepping through it, the problem is here:

Workbooks.Open Filename:=Folderpath & Range("B" & r).Value
Source = Range("B" & r)
Sheets(1).Copy Before:=Workbooks("CompletionWorksheet.xlsm").Sheets(1)
'How the hell do I close this ^ workbook
ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges:=False 'This closes the workbook where the sheet was copied to

Not sure what to do.

Dropdown Range Changes When Re-opening File?

Mar 1, 2013

I have a list of expenses on a certain project. I allocate each line to a certain type of expense by using a dropdown list. When re-opening the file, the first few lines were good: dropdownOK.jpg

But after a few lines, the dropdown range changed, although it keeps the selection I made in the previous version: dropdown_wrong.jpg

I have seen that the data validation list changed to =$A$2:$A$17 instead of my separate list =Dropdown!$A$2:$A$17 but cannot understand why excel has made this twist. Each month I update this list, which means adding lines to the list, both inserting them at the bottom, as in between other lines. I can't see any pattern, because it kept the range of the first 6 lines, when the previous version already had 50 lines or so. It does not only happen to the inserted lines, for example.

Opening An File From A Cell Reference

Nov 12, 2008

I want to use a macro to open an existing file on my c drive where the reference to that file is contained in a cell.

E.g. In my sheet, the cell A1 contains the following text "C:Documents and SettingsTest". Therefore the file I want to open using a macro will be Test.xls.

However the file I wish to open (and therefore the reference text in cell A1) could change (and it could also change to be a word document) so it needs to be able to adapt when a new valid file (and document type) reference is entered into the cell.

Also, as an aside, when I want to change the file referred to in A1, the easiest way I've found is to find the file I want in windows explorer, go to properties and copy the file reference and then paste it into A1. However the reference (from the properties tab) seems to miss the ".xls" or ".doc" at the end (see above). Is this an issue? If yes, then I'm happy to manually type the .xls or .doc extension at the end.

Is there an easier way to do this?

Determine If A File IS A Workbook Before Opening

Aug 6, 2009

Is there anyway I can test / inspect a file before attempting to open it to check that it is indeed an Excel workbook?

I don't want to do it by file extension as that can / will be changed, but rather wondered if there was anyway to examine the ACTUAL file?

I'm wondering if all Excel workbook files start with a particular section of data or anything?

Opening Unicode CSV File Using Opentext

Jul 7, 2012

I have written code to export data from excel as a unicode .csv file - see [URL] .....

However I now want to open that file by vba, yet it does not format the data correctly. I have a field in the delimited data that is string (in my .csv file strings are surrounded by " to indicate strings). This string can contain a vbLf as part of the string ie. the string goes over a couple of lines in one cell.

Using vba I open the .csv file as follows:

Workbooks.OpenText filename:=singlefname, origin:=65001, DataType:=xlDelimited, textqualifier:=xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote, comma:=True

yet when the code opens the file the vbLf starts a new worksheet row messing up the layout of the .csv file. It should just indicate a new line in a cell.

How to open the file so the vbLf only creates new line in the cell does not start a new worksheet row?
