Macro To Download Csv File From A Dynamic Date Based Url To A File Location
Feb 23, 2014
I have a requirement to download a lot of historical data files from the archieve of an website. The url goes something like this: [URL]....
This downloads file for 21022014 ie. 21-Feb-2014. I need to be able to have a facility to have a selection criteria on my user form (in excel) where I specify a date range and the macro automatically downloads all the valid excel files available within that date range (files for Saturday, Sunday and some holiday dates will not be available in the website archive database) one after the other (like at single clcik of button) into a specific location (predefined viz.. c:/Users/EOD files/) on my laptop. Best would be if I am able to select the save location run time by using a 'Browse' like feature where I go and choose my local laptop folder...same type when we try uploading a file from our laptop to the web..
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).
I am trying to open a website, then for excel to download the csv file, then for it to save it in a specific folder under a specific name and file format (excel).
I am successful at opening the website with the following code, but how to do the rest.
Sub Searchez() Dim IE As Object Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") IE.Navigate "http://quote.morningstar.ca/Quicktakes/stock/keyratios.aspx?t=clwr®ion=USA&culture=en-CA&ops=clear" 'load web page google.com IE.Visible = True While IE.Busy DoEvents Wend
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
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.
I have the following code written but I'm wondering if it's possible to modify this to change the red line to update to the path that the workbook is saved in? Meaning that User1Folder1 would change but [Workbook1.xlsm]Sheet1'E1 would always be the same.
For a sheet that many non-expert users will use on different systems I need a macro that let's them save, print and send the results of their work. So I made a macro that makes a copy of only 1 sheet of the workbook and saves it with a given name to a given location. The problem is that I want a location prompt to ask the user where they want the file saved, while giving/suggesting them a fixed filename. A lot of different users will make and use their sheets so I need a certain naming policy to manage all the files. (date, location, etc)
I use an image analysis program ImagePro which can call Excel within it's macro language (which seems to be visual basic). I looked up on this site how the change the drive (ChDrive command). But still when the Excel section (after With oExcel) executes the default file location in the browser is in My Documents on the C: drive.
Prior to this code Excel has been launched by this ImagePro macro, and a file Cumberland Template has been opened from the C: drive. Now I would like to do a Save As, but have Excel start at the I: drive location.
I have been working on automating IE. Part of my task involves using explorer to download a file from a given url and save it to disk. I've figured out how to launch explorer and start the download, but then a dialogue box appears asking whether to save the file and where to save it. how do I automatically get past this and save the file to e.g "quotes.xls"?
VBA coding for automatically saving an excel file as another file using the current date as part of the file name together with "32ga" as a constant add-in. I also what this macro to run at a particular time of the day let say 00:20hrs. The excel file i want to save as is always open . It has data that changes every 24-hrs.
I am looking for a way to show the character location number of a text file, possibly in the first row or a macro that I can run at any given location that will give me the location # I am currently viewing.
Currently, when I open the file I can see the character # at the opening screen (see attached file) but they disappear when it actually converts. I would like to be able to keep the character location ruler once the file is opened in Excel so I don't have to manually count.
I have the following code that I want to download everyfile at the listed ftp site to a folder on my computer. I was thinking about trying to make a key with dates in thisworkbook sheet1 starting in cell A1 and have it loop through.
Code: Private Declare Function URLDownloadToFile Lib "urlmon" Alias "URLDownloadToFileA" (ByVal pCaller As Long, ByVal szURL As String, ByVal szFileName As String, ByVal dwReserved As Long, ByVal lpfnCB As Long) As Long
how can i use VBA tp download a file from a webpage? I've found the following that would display the source code of a webpage. I need to download a zip file and save it to the desktop.What alterations do I have to make?
Sub Downloadfile() Dim objHttp As Object Set objHttp = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP") Call objHttp.Open("GET", "http:\yahoo.com", False) Call objHttp.Send("") Call MsgBox(objHttp.ResponseText) End Sub
I'm on excel 2010 and I have a small group excel files I open everyday. Most of the files are static in name and location. I've got a macro created to open those files, which works fine with workbooks.open and the file path.
There are two report files I want to incorporate into my macro of workbooks to open. The files are created weekly and the files names have the following format: "Report Name (YYYY-MM-DD).xlsm". I don't want to use the file's last modified date because older files may get edited after the more recent ones are created. The files are also not always created on the same day, so the solution needs to be flexible enough to not refer to a specific day of the week or anything.
Macro open an excel file based on the latest date found in filename.
How to save a file onto the computer using VBA. The code template below that I found on another forum seems promising, except when I go to the desktop to access it, the .csv file has what looks like the page's source code instead of the actual file I want. This may be because when I go to the url, it doesn't automatically download the file; rather, I am asked to save the file to a certain location (since I don't know the path name of the uploaded file on the site).
Is there any way to alter this code to accommodate this, or will I have to use a different code entirely?
VB: Sub Test() Dim FileNum As Long Dim FileData() As Byte Dim MyFile As String Dim WHTTP As Object
I have an excel file which contains 9 columns. Column A contains an article number i.e 12345 . Column B contains name of the product. Columns C and D contain Description and Specifications respectively. Columns E,F,G,H and I contain URL:s of images.
I want to do following.
1. Download all the images in a folder on my harddisk.
2. Copy the text in column C and place it under the text in column D.
I have a program operating in excel 2007 that extracts a picture from a URL and puts it into a PPT slide. I now discover that PPT 2007 doesn't allow this.
So my intent now is to download the jpg into a local file and then import into the PPT.
This is from a couple of sites: [url] [url]
At the top of the code:
Private Declare Function URLDownloadToFile Lib "urlmon" Alias "URLDownloadToFileA" _ (ByVal pCaller As Long, _ ByVal szURL As String, _ ByVal szFileName As String, _ ByVal dwReserved As Long, _ ByVal lpfnCB As Long) As Long
in the excel cell if a URL picture needs to be inserted it starts with the prefix "picture=" then the http address.
This did not work.
So I then copied the code from the websites into a module (changing the destination file and URL to mine of course) and called the procedure and still nothing.
complete the attached code (Excel VBA) to automatically process a File Download dialog from Internet Explorer. I want to click "Save" which will produce the "Save As" dialog. Then I need to enter a default filename like (C:Temp) and click "Save" again. When this is working, I will hide Internet Explorer to make the operation completely transparent to the user. The URL is a sample chosen specifically for this test case.
Public Sub Report_Test()
Dim objIE As SHDocVw.InternetExplorer Dim strURL As String Dim varItem As Variant
' Establish connection to the Internet Explorer application. Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
' Set Internet Explorer visible. objIE.Visible = True
I'm trying to download an Excel file from the internet and then extract data out of it. The problem is that I don't get any errors, yet the file downloaded is only 1kb in size. The extraction bit works, but the file is empty. The actual file is size 350KB.
Code: Sub ExtractDataTest()
Dim FileNum As Long Dim FileData() As Byte Dim MyFile As String Dim WHTTP As Object
I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):
Macro 1: clears order Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.
It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.
I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.
Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons. Row 11 includes the heading for order data.
For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.
The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)
File and Folder info:
To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later): Template file name: template_order.xlsm Template file location: \servershared emplate
Total list file name: total_list.xlsx Total list file location: \servershared otal
The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10 The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11 The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty). (If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).
When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.
I have had my server removed that I had my default file location, when I go in to change any of my options the first thing it does is go look for this file location and brings back an error stating it cannot find the server. I cannot find anywhere else that I could change it.
way to construct my save file so that it saves to the correct location.
I have a a FileSearch that lookings in a specific Folder and the sub folders for a file type and then saves them to a different location. Here is the location of the save in regards to the original location...
Filesearch folder= C:path Savefolder=C:path he folder its found in & " excel converted"
If that makes any sense, basically I need to call the path of the file I opened, but not including the file name.
I have a template file that I import data in to, which is then saved with the current date. This works, but I want to automate the import of the data, but ensure I don't duplicate the load. Therefore, I have a tab 'FileLog' that I record the filename (variable by date) in column A and Creation timestamp in column B.
How do I obtain the filename and creation timestamp of the import data so that they can be entered?
I have attached the file I am working on. I am attempting to create a link to an external file based on the value of cells in column A. Then I would like to simply copy the formula down, lets say in Column B, the rows and as I do the external file reference will change depending on the value within the cell in Column A. I hope that I am making sense.
I am using Windows Vista with Excel 2007. The files will all be within the same file folder, however, there are hundereds of files so I won't be able to open them all for the indirect to work.
