Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

The format of B5 looks like - 13/08/2014 16:39

The file path has folders for each year in format "yyyy" with each year having sub folders for each month in format "mm".

The file name is just the date only and is formatted "" e.g. 13.08.14

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Cannot Get (Last Save Time) From Other File

Apr 19, 2011

I have a workbook that retrieves data from a file from a URL address upon opening. Actually, I am saving the URL file to a local drive and then updating my workbook with this data. The problem is that the job that updates the URL file sometimes fails. I want to notify the user of my workbook that the data has not been update recently. I am trying to use the built in document properties (Last Save Time) but I cannot get it to work except for the workbook that has the macros in it. Is there a way to find the last save time of a workbook (from a URL address) seperate from the workbook that has the marco? Below is my current code that errors out at:

dp = Application.Workbooks("DockReportExport.xls").BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time") with and runtime error.

Sub FTP()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'Open file from URL addres to check last save time
Workbooks.Open Filename:=""
'Check if data on server has been updated in the last 15 minutes

[Code] ........

VBA Save File On Time Interval?

Oct 11, 2013

I have a file that sits open all the time, and performs some refresh functions every thirty minutes. I need the file to save a copy of the tab as a CSV file at a given time interval. The code below is almost there, just need to work with the time interval part. The way it should work is to open the csv, copy / paste the active sheet; then close the csv; leaving the original excel file open. I can run it, and it works, but the time interval is not triggering.

I can get the time interval to work by itself, and the save csv part to work by itself also; I need them to work together.

Sub test()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeSerial(0, 1, 0), "test"
Dim OutputFile As Workbook, InputFile As Workbook
Dim sDD As Worksheet

Excel File Takes Long Time To Save

Jan 20, 2014


Excel takes about 10 minutes in the saving process. When I say 10 minutes, I mean, the excel screen freezes (says not responding) for about 10 minutes, then it actually saves at the very end in the normal time any other file would take as you watch the progress bar go forward.

I know many of the common answers and have tried. reducing the calculation time (which in turn reduces the saving time).

But in my circumstance, the calculation takes a very reasonable amount of time, and you see the progress % going forward.

- I would say I have about 2000 rows, and 15 columns.
- They have sumifs formulas.
- They link to a different workbook.
- The workbook I am working on saves to the network
- the source of my sumifs are also in the same folder on the network
- the recalculation takes about 10 seconds at most
- i have turned off recalculate before saving, it is all on manual calcs

- when i hit save, there are no calcs being performed
- there are no macros in the workbook
- there are only about 2 names in the name manager
- then it freezes for about 10 minutes.
- then the progress bar starts moving then it saves.

What is it doing in those 10 minutes?

1 more item to note, when I break the links to the workbook and thereby removing the sumifs formulas, its a snap.

Why does the existence of the sumifs extend saving time? I would completely understand if it elongated calculation time, but if calculation is off, then why does it even worry about it when saving?

Large File Takes Long Time To Open/Save

May 19, 2008

I have a large Excel 2007 file, around 60.000KB. 54.000KB are due to one of the worksheets where I have 8760rows x 160columns with data. The calculation time is not a problem, it is very fast, it only takes 2/3 seconds. The problem is when I open or save the file, it takes around 2 minutes... it is not too much, but it becomes too long when one has to open and save it several times. It there any trick to decrease the time when openning or saving an excel file??

Save A File With A Date Taken From A Cell

Jan 26, 2007

Is it possible to save a file with a date taken from a cell? For example:

I have an Excel file opened, in the cell A1 there is a date: 12.04.2003 (or any other date format). I want an Excel to save this document, but after I check the date of creation (modification) of the file under Windows, I want to receive the result 12.04.2004 (or any other, that was in the cell "A1" before pressing SAVE button).

I imagine, that there would have to be some external script running, that would change the system date for a moment, just after detection of pressing SAVE command.

Save File As Cell Value (Date)

Jan 4, 2008

I'm working on creating a computerised invoicing system for where I work, and right now I'm creating a Day Book file.

I want the name of the file to simply be the date which it was created, in YYYYMMDD format. However, I keep getting the error message and am not sure what has gone wrong.

Please note that in the day book template, cell F1 contains the formula


which may be useful to know in the later part of the code.

from the code below?

Private Sub DayBook_Click()

Select Case MsgBox("Proceed? (Ensure that a Day Book has not already been created)", vbYesNo Or vbQuestion Or vbDefaultButton1, "Day Book Creation")
Case vbYes
Dim strName As String

'copy today's date from invoice template

Collect Date From User For Save File Name

Jun 21, 2008

We have an excel file which is made every thursday for comparison purposes etc. I've made an macro (excel 2003) which - on start - asks via an inputbox for the extension in date format for saving purposes. Later on, the macro will search for the same file but from last week to open it and copy/paste a 'comments' column into this new one. All went well, everybody happy. However it may be well possible that file is made and saved but with an extra extension: example:

dir to save = C:file

file when starts runs inputbox "Please enter a date (e.g. 2008-06-20)"
The macro records this string as mydate:

Sub Start()
Dim AnyString
Dim MyStr
Dim DirString
Dim mynum 'As String
Dim resp As Long
Dim get_mynum
Dim mydate

'Define extension for the file name to be saved and the correct path (dir) where this file will be stored.
mynum = Application.InputBox("Enter the filename's extension to save in yyyy-mm-dd (e.g. 2008-06-30)", vbOKCancel)
If mynum = False Then
msgbox ("You do not want to continue? Ok, programm stopped")
Exit Sub
ElseIf mynum = "" Then..............

Copy Into New Workbook & Save With Date In File Name

Aug 7, 2008

I have a report which I have written a macro to reformat, I then want to copy the sheet (Remake) containing the report into a new workbook as the only sheet in the new workbook. I want the sheet name to be changed from "Remake" to "Duty to Consider" and I want the new workbook to save itself automatically as "Duty to Consider - Month/Year" - in this case it would be "Duty to Consider - August 2008".

I think that a Pop Up box which lets me input the Month and Year of the report I am working on would be useful in naming the new workbook, if this box popped up when I click the button which runs my Macro that'd be great. Here is the code I am using to reformat my report. This works fine I just need the changes I mentioned. Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'this will turn on screen updating, making the macro run faster

'This will select the DTC Tab and remove rows 1-4
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

'This will add a filter to the data to remove duplicate rows
Range("A1:J1307").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, Unique:=True

'This will copy the data on the DTC tab and copy it into the Remake Tab

I'm trying to make a vba that would save the file with the end date that will reference to a certain cell that user selects it. Working Sheet is a name of a File, and Current Sheet is a name of the panel where user will select the date.

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= WorkingSheet("Control Sheet").Range("D3").Value & Format(Date, "yyyymm") & ".xlsm", FileFormat:=51

But here i seem to missing the location

And I tried this one:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="X:Work2014WorkingSheet& Format(Date,"yyyymm"). & ".xlsm" _, FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

but it keeps popping up as 'expected end of statement' for yyymm?

Copy A Sheet Into A New Book And Save File Name As The Current Date

Jul 5, 2009

I have an excel file which I use when I book keep journals in work. Each time I come across a new piece of bookkeeping I add to the file, name the sheet and index it. (I've attached a loose example for illustration) so the bookkeeping template.xls gets bigger every day.

Currently, when I book keep on a particular day, I open the template.xls workbook;

draft my journals;

and then manually copy the worksheets I have completed during the day from the template.xls workbook and paste the sheets into a new book and save the days bookkeeping as the current date.

With the file I have attached can someone show me how to write a macro and apply it to each of the buttons on the various work sheet tabs (each button will run the same macro).

Upon clicking a button, I would like the macro to;

Copy the active sheet into a new book and save the file as the current date.

Each subsequent click of a button the macro will check if the .xls file exists for the current date, if it does, then it will just copy the active worksheet to the file that has already been created.

In the new file which is saved as the current date, I need to remove the macro button and the hyperlink that reads back to index.

I have had some helpful macro's provided from another forum, however, the other forum does not appear to enable users to upload files, so I can't quite convey what it is I am trying to achieve.
