Link Error When File Saved In New Location

May 19, 2014

I have a template excel file that has links to data in another excel file in the same directory as the template. However, I save the template with a new name in a new folder and the link no longer works. The link changes to the location with the new file and of course the file I am trying to like to is not in that location.

The link shows the full path in the template file so I would think it would keep the full path when saving to a new location but the file doesn't.

How do I make the link address static?

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Update Link Without Open Resource File

May 31, 2006

I'm using Excel 2002.

I have one workbook with data linked to another CSV file (It's about 40000rows). When I open the workbook, "THis workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated." message appears and asks me to open csv file if I wanna to update (although I set full path for links in cells). I wonder if there's any way to update link without opening csv file? Or Excel can not update link without openning the resource file?

Update Workbook Open On Another Computer

Feb 26, 2007

Worksheet1 is modified on computer A. Worksheet1 is open on computer B. The instant something changes on Worksheet1 on computer A, Worksheet1 on computer B is updated.

Idea 1:Maybe worksheet1 on computer B could be opened read-only and then the notify feature could be used to trigger a macro in worsheet1 on computer B. By notify I am talking about the box that pops up when a user has finished modifying a worksheet to let you know you have read/write access.

Idea 2: Could all cells in worksheet1 on computer B be linked to all cells in worksheet1 on computer A and automate the updating somehow this way?

Saving Cell Contents To XML File Saved As Current Workbook File Name

Dec 12, 2012

I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.

I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.

Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.

Code:
Sub Test()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim wb As Workbook
Set Rng = Range("A1:A2")
Set wb = Workbooks.Add
With wb
Rng.Copy

[code]....

VBA Not Able To Call From DLL File When File Is Saved

Jun 19, 2014

I have an add-in called GeoDesiX. It is a geocoder/mapping tool that uses Google Maps API. It works fine, even on my machine, but I think it was built using 32-bit, while I have 64-bit Excel. When I open the add-in for the first time, an example workbook is below, it works great.

The problem is, that when I save any file with the map in it, the VBA no longer works, and an error pops up in the below code that says: "Object Reference not set to an instance of an object". This happens at the Err.Raise 65000, "GeodesiX", Result part. It looks like it just cannot find the DLL file, which is the "GeodesiX" in that error part. I was reading that it might be caused by switching between 64 bit and 32 bit, but could not figure out how to do it. I am guessing you need to put Private Function Declare PtrSafe, but I could not figure out syntax on how to get that to work. I understand that you will not be able to use these as it is an add-in, but maybe you just know what I need to do in order for the vba to call to the DLL file.

Deleting Code On The Saved File

Jan 11, 2008

I have a template that when it is opened it will automatically save the file to a specific location with the date in the file name.

Currently my code is

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

End Sub
Does anyone know a way to have this code disabled (either by deleting or making it all a comment) on the saved file (xls) so the speadsheet does not try and overwrite itself when I go back and open a previous days spreadsheet?

Inadvertently Saved Over An Important File

Jun 10, 2008

I'm not sure how I did it, but I opened up a new Excel file and accidentally saved it over a file I've been working on all afternoon. Is there any way to recover the original file (per the last time I saved it about 20 min ago)?

I looked in the "wastebasket" and only found files that I had specifically DELETED. But I didn't specifically delete this one, instead I saved over it.
