How To Save File With Correct File Extension (XLS Or XLSX)

Mar 12, 2014

How can I save worksheet from existing workbook as a new workbook with extension .xls or .xlsx depending on the version of Excel on which the original was opened and no matter the extension of original?

My code that I was trying to create all above does not work, because even if I am using Excel 2007, 2010 or 2013 it will still be saving only as .xls.

Master Workbook - Saving File With XLSX Extension

Jun 23, 2014

I have a master workbook that contains macros and has an xlsm extension.

One macro in the workbook copies one of the worksheets to a new workbook. I then want to save this new workbook as an xlsx file. I use the following code line:

.SaveAs Filename:=Extract_Save_Name & ".xlsx", FileFormat:= _
xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

However, when I run the code I get an error:

"This extension cannot be used with the selected file type."

The new workbook does not contain any macros and if I save the workbook "manually" as an xlsx it saves fine.

If I change the code above to have "xlsm" it works fine - but I don't want that extension.

Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.

All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.

File Format Or File Extension Not Valid

Sep 20, 2013

I saved my worksheet in vba .xlsx and for some reason, when I go to the folder that it's saved in and try to open the file I get an error message saying "excel cannot open the file 'PO Acks fo 09-20-2013.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file"

This is weird because I have another file that I save right before this that opens just fine without an error. Getting frustrating. When I go into the ~Users folder it shows as an excel file and saved as .xlsx.

Where would the link be missing?

Here is the code

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"G:PURCHASINGSupplier ServicesGroupSharePublic~UsersPO Acks for " & Format$(Date, "mm-dd-yyyy") & ".xlsx"

How To Alter Fixed XLSX File To Check For Non Blank Cells

Dec 19, 2012

I have attempted to alter this example to simply check if the cells are not blank by replacing the "X" with "<>", but I get errors in the SMALL function--it looks like the IF statement is just returning an array with all of the values set to FALSE, and none of the values in the array call out a location of the next filled cell.

How could you alter your fixed XLSX file to check for non-blank cells instead of "X" specifically?

Saves A Template With Macro (XLTM) As A Normal File (XLSX)

Sep 10, 2009

When I prepare a file with macro's (to be used by other people), I save this file as a template with macro's with the extension *.xltm (template with macro).
Therefore no one can overwrite my file. These other people can open this template (e.g. double-click, but not file-open). But when these people save this file, Excel automatically saves it as a normal Excel-file with the extension *.xlsx.
Ok, a message is seen after pressing <enter> or clicking Save, but does normal users know, what they have to do then?

If I'm making a template with macro's, I want Excel to have this file saved as a file with macro's. Whatever did I make a file with macro's for? Is this a bug or is it done on purpose?

Open And Close File With No Extension

Feb 21, 2013

I opened a file, by file I mean a "file" with no extension that has commas separating it.

So I recorded a macro to open up the file and this works fine.

How do I close it? I tried

wk1 = ThisWorkbook.Name 'Main Worksheet

But the problem is that "wk1" is not set equal to the name, probably because the file is not an excel file, it has no extension.

Error Opening File......different Format Than What Specified By Extension

May 15, 2009

Apparently my program quits after i try to open an excel file. If you open the file manually you get an error upon opening the file...something like this:

"File you are tyring to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension".

The problem is i am using an excel macro using VBA and once the file is opened the VBA execution quits.

The excel file turns out to be an xml file which excel can open the file and have the VBA continue running if i RENAME the file with an "xlsx" extension. The problem is that i cant ask the user to rename the do i get VBA to open the file without an issue?

Determine File Extension With FileSearch Method

Aug 23, 2007

I am attempting to write a macro that will open every file in a given folder, then save the files with a new file names while keeping the original file extension. The files I'm opening with excel have file extensions of ".VA", ".TOU", and ".KVA". The new file names I want to save the files with are contained in cell A1.

An example would be:
The excel macro opens file "R003890.TOU"
The macro assigns a the value in cell "A1" (B1040) to a variable
The macro assigns the file extension (.TOU) to a variable
The macro saves the file as file name variable and file extension variable (B1040.TOU)

Excel Not Allowing To Save File With Uppercase Letters In File Name?

Jan 27, 2014

A co-worker of mine is exporting files from Quickpen as excel files, but every time he names the files with any Uppercase letters in the files name, they are automatically changing to all lower case. Even when he tries to rename the files, they will not stay with any uppercase letters....I have searched all over and cannot find a solution. If he sends ME the file, I can open it in excel and save it with any cases.

Save Each Worksheet As PDF File And Name Each File Based On Cell Value In Each Sheet

Jul 10, 2014

I have a Workbook that already has a macro in it that will generate multiple sheets based on certain criteria.

For each of these newly generated sheets (numbered 1-6 in the attached example), I need to be able save each of them to a PDF file based on a unique name contained in a certain cell (in this case, each named is referenced in cell Q1 of each sheet). As such, I should end up with 6 pdfs based on the attached sample files.

The PDFs would ideally need to be landscaped and should be just 1 page per sheet.

In my attached sample workbook, you'll notice that I have a "PracticePrint" macro that doesn't quite get the job done. One other criteria involves not printing any sheet with the characters "1010" in it (my PracticePrint macro is setup to do that, but it fails to do much else).
