Macro Is Closing Wrong Workbook Before Going To The Next Workbook

Aug 12, 2009

I run most of my macros out of a file called "Personal.XLS" and I have this bit of code at the end of this particular macro which is closing personal.xls instead of the active file it is working on. It is set up on a loop and it should go to the next file in the directory but since it closes the file I run the macro from, the macro stops immediately. It appears that it believes "ThisWorkbook.Close" is referring to the file from which the macro is initiated.

Macro For Closing And Reopening A Workbook Read-only

Jul 21, 2009

I have a pair of macros that together close and reopen a workbook when the user clicks on a button labelled 'Refresh'. The reason for the macros is that any one of multiple users may have the workbook open for editing while the others have it open read-only, and those who have it open read-only will want to refresh it periodically to make sure they're viewing the most up-to-date version.

Now, here's the hitch. If I have the workbook open read-only and refresh it while no-one else has it open for editing, it doesn't reopen read-only (it reopens for editing). But I don't want it to reopen for editing (I want it to reopen read-only). Is there anything I can add to the macros to make the workbook reopen read-only, or is there a different pair of macros I can use? Here's what I have at the moment:

Macro 1
Sub CloseMe()
Application.OnTime Now, "OpenMe"
ThisWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=False
End Sub

Macro 2
Sub OpenMe()
End Sub

Show Custom Error Message If Opening Workbook Macro Code Fails

May 17, 2008

I cannot figure out how to get my error handler to work, or actually, not work. It seems to work fine when there is an error, but the code still gets read even when there was not an error. Basically, I am trying to open a file, which may or may not be there. When it is not there I want a message to pop up informing the user. However, when the file is there and it opens, the error handler still gives the message box. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Private Sub btnOK_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim LCSfile As String
LCSfile = frmSelectFile.Listbox1.Value
On Error Goto ErrHandler
Workbooks.Open Filename:=sPath & sDate & "" & LCSfile & "QUANT.CSV"
MsgBox ("File is not quantitated. Please select another file.")
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

I want to run a program from my PERSONAL.XLS workbook, however, after a piece of code
where I close all the open workbooks different from PERSONAL.XLS, the code stops running.

How can I contour this?

Closing Workbook At The End

Aug 22, 2012

I have a perfectly functioning piece of code. There is still one snag, however. In the process of running the macro, three new workbooks are opened. I would like to close all three of those workbooks at the end. I am using the following procedure for each of the sheets:

To open the worksheet

Dim wb As WorkbookMsgBox "Please select the Stakeholder File"SHFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Files (*.xls),*.xls", , "Please select the Stakeholder Workbook")If SHFile "False" Then Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=SHFile)

To close the worksheet at the end:

If Not wb is Nothing Then wb.Close SaveChanges:=False

The only problem is that I am getting bugs when closing multiple workbooks (3). I have assigned the names wb, vb and ab to the three workbooks.

Before Closing The Workbook

Apr 19, 2006

I have some VBA code which opens another workbook, copies data from the first sheet in there and pastes into the current sheet before closing the workbook it got the data from. Is there any way of suppressing any messages associated with closing the other workbook? i.e. do you want to save - or possibly automatically generating a no message to the prompts?

Reminder When Closing A Workbook

Jan 11, 2007

I have 4 employees who at the end of their shifts have to email me an excel workbook. The issue is that some of them are forgetful and after placing numerous post-it notes on their monitors one particular employees just forgets.

What i want to do if possible is that when the workbook gets closed, a pop-up window shows up on their screen reminding them to send the workbook. Even better would be if their was a button that they could click that would email the workbook as an attachment in the pop-up box.

I then manipulate the copied data in Book X. Once this is done I move the manipulated sheet back into original file

The problem i'm having is I'd like to close the newly created Workbook X file once the macro has run but Workbook X is usually called Book2, Book4, Book7, Book32 etc.

Workbook X will always be the previous file if i use the ALT TAB shortcut.

From Userform / Other Workbook Not Closing

Nov 26, 2013

I wrote this macro where, from a userform, I click a button and it will fillout another form with certain data from the original WB to a different WB.

All is working fine and exactly the way I want it except, it won't close and save the other sheet. It will go back to the userform, as I want it to, but it will leave the other file in the background open.

This is the code:

Private Sub CommandButton6_Click()
'Allocation file fill out
Dim alloc As String
Dim allwb As Workbook
Dim ABA As Workbook
Dim Prompt As String
'Dim fd As FileDialog
Set ABA = ThisWorkbook

Closing A Workbook That Is Open Via VBA

Jul 2, 2008

Well I seem to be having an issue in a form i created. What happens is that when the user clicks a button it saves a worksheet of workbook as its own file, problem is that it will actually open the new worksheet as a workbook when I really just want it to save without opening a new instance. Here is the code

Dim IntWirefilename As String
IntWirefilename = "International Wires Database"
Worksheets("Intwires").SaveAs FileName:="File Path" & IntWirefilename & (".xls")
Workbooks("File PathInternational Wires Database.xls").Close
I think the problem lies in the last line or it could be from the select and copy part.

I do not want it to open a new file after it saves it. Also can anyone help create a part that will bypass the overwrite existing file thing so that this file will just continuously save as the same file name rather than prompting the user constantly to Overwrite the file.

Closing The Workbook & Saving Automatically

Jan 25, 2008

I have my Excel workbook open & have made changes. Now I close it and Excel prompts me if I want to save the changes. Is there a way to just close the workbook and automatically accept any changes without have the "Do you want to save changes" message appear?

What about if it is opened in read-only mode? Typically the workbook will not save any changes unless you save it off as another file name. If there is a solution to my question above, can it be enabled only when the workbook is opened in edit mode, or will it not auto-save changes over the file because Excel knows it was opened in read-only mode?

Prevent Closing Of One Workbook When Two Are Open

Sep 23, 2009

I'm trying to prevent a user from closing a perticular workbook.

Here is some important factors.

Workbook(A) = "LA-01-04-10" This is only one of 52 other but only one is open at a time.

Workbook(B) = "LA.xls" Always the same name and is always opened when one of the workbooks(A) above it opened.

When workbook (A) is opened it will then open another workbook (B) at that time the window is hidden workbook(B) So the user can only see workbook (A) I have a button on workbook(A) that unhides the window to show workbook(B) After the user completes his work in Workbook (B) they need to click another button that sorts the list and returns them to workbook(A) (Which also hides the window for workbook(B).

The problem is I have users that are trying to close workbook(B) instead of pressing the sort list button. So what I want is to prevent the user from closing workbook(B) by displaying a msgbox saying they need to press the button.

Ive tried several approches to this but I'm still having problems. The below script works if workbook(B) is active or shown. The message is displayed and the workbook will not close. However if the user is in workbook (A) and trys to close the message is displayed and both workbooks close like they are suppose to. But why is the message displayed?

One other note I should say is that not only does workbook(A)Open workbook (B) but it also closes it. Which may be why I'm having problems?

I have also included both workbooks so you can see all the code.

I have this code in Thisworkbook of workbook(B)

Before Close Not Working On Closing Workbook

Sep 29, 2009

I am hoping someone can help. I am new to writing macros and have the following in the this workbook page. When opening the macro does exactly what I want and expect, but does not do the "before close" part. If I select the macro in editor and run it, it does just what I want, so dont understand what is going wrong. Do I have to put in some kind of prompt, or manually run this before close - preferably I would like it to just run.

secondly, I have password protected the workbook, but have to put the password in the macro, is there any way of making this invisible to anyone who then reads the macro....

Workbook Automatically Opens After Closing

Jan 6, 2010

I have a workbook on a share drive that is used by multiple people. In the event that someone leaves the workbook open after using it, I have a timer function that pops up a splash screen after 4 minutes of inactivity which states, "This workbook will close in 1 minute if there is no further activity". If there is no further activity in that minute, the workbook closes.

The code works fine...unless the workbook is manually closed in that minute between the splash screen and when the timer would have closed the workbook. If that happens, the workbook closes normally and then briefly reopens and closes a minute later when the timer would have closed the workbook. Is there any code to prevent this?
