Macro To Create Automatic Backup Of File

Oct 27, 2013

Is it possible to create a macro that automatically saves a backup of the excel document in another desired location?

I have this formula:

Sub backupbutton()
Dim fname
fname = "D:" & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname
End Sub

But that just keeps on making multiple copies of the file rather than overwriting the backup in the D: location.

Also, that particular macro requires me to have to click on a button in order for it to work but I would prefer that it happens automatically when the original file is saved.

Excel 2007 :: Stop Links Changing When Use SaveAs To Create Backup?

Sep 25, 2013

I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database

When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.

Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?

Make Auto Backup File When Opening

Apr 10, 2012

I want to make a macro that will generate a backup copy each time the Excel file is opened. I premade a backup and recorded the following macro, placing it in the sub here:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ChDir "C:Usersmy.selfDesktop"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Usersmy.selfDesktopDaily Backup.xlsm", _
FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled,_ CreateBackup:=False
ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub

names have been changed to protect the innocent. But now either putting in to repoen the original working excel or manually opening it puts me in an infinite loop of backing up. The probelm seems to be that to make a copy it is making the open workbook the backup. So two part question here:

1. Can I make a copy under the same name automatically when the file is opened while staying in the current one?
Example: open the Excel file "Working Copy", which makes a mirror file called "Backup Copy", but stay in "Working Copy".

2. From what I did manage to do, I notice every time it asks if I want to overwrite. I chose "Yes" when recording the macro but this doesn't seem to get captured. can I make it automatically yes without being asked?

File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

Feb 10, 2014

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Backup Copy Of Workbook Macro

Nov 28, 2013

I am using this code to create a backup copy of my workbook:

Code:
Sub DOUGHMON()Dim fname
fname = "C:UsersAndrewDesktopWEEKLY SALES REPORTS" & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname
End Sub

The only problem with this code is that my current file gets closed and the backup is open. I'm not sure if that is exactly what happens, but when it is done the current file that is open is the copy, and I would like the original file to stay open.

Remove Macro From Backup Excel Document

Oct 28, 2013

I have this macro currently running on an original excel document

Private Sub Workbook_Open()Dim fname
fname = "C:ackupEconomics Tracker - " & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm AM/PM") & ".xlsm"
ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs Filename:=fname
Sheets("Menu").Activate
End Sub

Which creates a backup of the document each time the document is opened; I was wondering, is it possible to remove that particular macro from the backup as opposed to saving the backup as .xlsx? I don't want to be able to open a backup and the backup makes a backup

That particular macro is running on the main workbook.

Custom Macro To Create New File From Data

Jun 12, 2009

I'm looking to create a new file from data in my table. I don't want to even imagine having to do this manually again...I'm optimistic there is a solution. All the data needed to create the file is in the table, but i need it stacked and organized in a weird way. It's almost to hard to explain...so I color coded an attachement that basically says it all. It's pretty much the same thing repeated over and over except the last 2 lines. It's just a really messed up organization. In the real version I need the new file in a new workbook. I'm extremely grateful to anyone who can automate this thing

Macro To Create New Line In Inventory Pointing To Specific File

Jul 9, 2014

I created the following macro by recording the macro and going through the steps manually, however I need to make some changes and can't seem to accomplish what I'm trying to do.

The Macro opens a master inventory file, creates a new line, and then links certain column cells in the inventory to corresponding places within the original form (the macro is executed from the original form once it's completed).

Problem is, the macro is written using the form "template" so whenever I save the template as the name of the unique item, it won't update the macro language as well.

What I'm trying to accomplish is when someone opens the template, the save immediately with a different file name, and once the form is completed and the macro is run, it's creating the new line in the inventory pointing to that specific file.

I thought somehow utilizing ThisWorkbook within the macro instead of explicitly using something like

"='[Control Sheets (JOHN TEST).xls]FUND SET_UP PG_1'!R2C3" would accomplish what I'm trying to do.

Create Master File With Macro Built In That Will Allow Multiple Users To Use It At Once

Feb 7, 2014

I am trying to create a master file, with a macro built in, that will allow multiple users to use it at once. The macro is to open a dilouge(sp sorry) box showing the contents of a specific folder, allow the user to selct one of the sheets, then copy and paste the set details from the hidden tab on this sheet (All sheets will be the same barring title), append the details to the master list in the first empty row.

I've got this far thus
Sub Macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
'
'
' Modify this folder path to point to the files you want to use.
FolderPath = "My Folder name here"

' Set the current directory to the the folder path.
ChDrive FolderPath

[Code] .....

So I can copy the row, but I can't get the first part to open .

Create An Automatic Pop-up Based On A Condition

Jun 15, 2009

I have an Excel file with multiple worksheets. 4 of these worksheets have the same format and have concatenate formulas in cells D14 through D28. What I need is an automatic pop-up message to tell me when I open the file if on any of these 4 worksheets text is generated from the concatenate formula that matches either "air cooling unit", "air heating unit", or "ceiling".

And, if so, I need for the pop-up to state the name of the Worksheet/tab and which of the above text strings match. For example, if one tab is named "6-5-09 C" and within the range of D14:D28 the text "ceiling" is listed, the pop-up should read something like, "Maintenance Needed for ceiling on 6-5-09 C!" If there are multiples on multiple worksheets, then I'd want all of them listed on the same pop-up. Then I would want to be able to click OK or CLOSE to close the pop-up. If I can even color the pop-up a color different than the regular gray, that'd be cool too.
