How To Have Excel File Open In Last Active Window / Workbook

Apr 15, 2013

I compared data between excel worksheets all the time, well recently my computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and since then I have not been able to figure out how to have an Excel file to open in the Excel window selected(or last active window) when I have more than one workbook open. Is there a way to do this?

Copy Data From Open File To Current Active Workbook

May 2, 2008

I want to create a standard macro that will copy values from a Master workbook to the current, active workbook I have open. The problem I have run into is when I record a macro it also records the name of the active workbook I'm copying data into and I would like it so when I bring up a workbook I just run the macro and it copies the values in. I'll be doing 8 different macros that each copy different values from the Master spreadsheet

Resize Active Window - Increases Height Of Workbook

Jun 7, 2014

I was just wondering if it possible to create a macro that permanently increases the height of a workbook by a set increment

I have several workbooks that i have the code below assigned to

[Code] ......

So when they open they resize to that set size and position. and what ive been doing if i need to resize (which is often) is just adjust the values in the above code.

Not that the way ive been doing it is difficult but i was thinking how great it would be if i could have a macro i could run that permanently adds 9 to the .Height and subtracts 9 from the .Top

Open Workbook Window On Top Of UserForm

Mar 13, 2008

I have a userform with several buttons on, each doing seperate tasks, three of the buttons however are used to load a workbook stored elsewhere in our central data storage drive. Loading these workbooks is not the problem, the problem is when loading these they load up behind the userform and not in a new window.

Check If Workbook Is The Only Excel File Open

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that itís not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ĎWorkbook_Opení etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesnít contain a macro to auto open and because csvís usually donít like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.

I have this module that is supposed to delete rows containing some words and those that are entirely empty..

The macro works fine when I open the file for the first time (excel as well) but subsequently if i try to run it again, the macro doesnt work anymore. What could possibly be causing this bug?

Set Rng1 = ActiveSheet.UsedRange. Find(X)
If Rng1 Is Nothing Then
Exit Do

SaveAs Worksheet To Another File / Folder While Keeping Original Open / Active?

Apr 15, 2014

I have an Excel Worksheet (let's call it "AA.xlsm") which uses VBA code to loop through column A, update column B with some results/values, and then (for each value in column A) SaveAs the worksheet into a different filename/path as a ".csv" type file.

My line of code for the SaveAs is as follows: Workbooks("AA.xlsm").SaveAs LEpath & CurrFldr, FileFormat:=xlCSV

My problem is that my original worksheet, AA.xlsm, gets closed whereas I need it to stay open/active after each SaveAs iteration.

Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook

Oct 2, 2006

I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.

Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using

Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value

If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.

Active Window

May 8, 2007

I've built a macro to run a loop that opens excel files, prints certain sheets and closes them. I have the macro working - to some degree. here is my code (this is excel):

Sub RMPProducer()

OldPath = "S:RMBS_Performance_Analytics Analysis1 Staging Folder For Monthly Model Templates2007200704VVDeals"
Dim t As Workbook
Dim s As String
Dim a As Window

With Application.FileSearch
.NewSearch
.LookIn = OldPath
.SearchSubFolders = False
.Filename = "*.xls"
.MatchTextExactly = True
If .Execute() > 0 Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
s = .FoundFiles(i)

I have 2 problems. First problem is that I am trying to add a function to make the window close once its finished printing. This actually works - but it limits my loop iterations from i = 1 to 2 (so it only runs 2 times and I'm not exactly sure why). If I don't include the statement - this can run for up to 7 - 8 times (these are very large files) then excel runs out of memory. Unfortunately, i can't set the loop to run from i = anything other than one.

So What I would prefer is to be able to make the "ActiveWindow.close" command work - because this way I can run the entire loop. But I'm not sure how to. I tried window referencing, I tried adding a new active Window so when the file opens, its opening in the active window already, but nothing works.

Preferably, I need to be able to reference both windows, as my next macro will involve referencing 2 windows (one static - always open) and the other the loop above.

Ensure Active Workbook When File Opened By Windows Scheduler

Jul 23, 2009

This code opens a UserForm in the Workbook_Open event when the file is opened. After 10 seconds, the message is supposed to go away if the user doesn't click anything, then macros that follow are supposed to run. It is intended to allow a user to stop the macros. This works when you open the file manually (macro security must be low), you'll see a msgbox pop up after the UserForm goes away.

However, when the workbook is opened as a Windows Scheduled Task (Windows/ Control Panel/ Scheduled Tasks), the UserForm does not come to the front of the screen unless a user actually clicks on the window. It just flashes at the bottom indefinitely.

VBA Grab Active Window Index

iStartBook = ActiveWindow.Index

I'm trying to grab the "2" that .NewWindow generates. The above gives 1 both times, despite the obvious 2 in the caption after you run it. So what property works? What does .Index mean here?

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

Apr 24, 2014

I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls

Example: statistics_20140423_142754.xls

Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

Open Workbook Using File Name In ListBox

Mar 8, 2009

I've created a Form (Userform1) and a Listbox(ListBox1). The listbox is initialized by creating a File System Object so that all XLS files within a folder(Test1) are added to the Listbox. I have a Sub to call the form from a workbook. The files saved in the "Test1" folder appears in the list but I get an error when I select and launch the command to open.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim fso As FileSystemObject
Dim fld As Folder
Set fso = New FileSystemObject
Set fld = fso.GetFolder("c:Documents and SettingsEricDesktopTest1")
For Each Fil In fld.Files
If UCase(Right(Fil. Name, 3)) = "XLS" Then
ListBox1.AddItem Fil.Name
End If
Next
End Sub

Code to open workbook from the listbox

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Workbooks.Open ActiveWorkbook.Path & "" & ListBox1
UserForm1.Hide
End Sub
