Is it possible to save a file with a date taken from a cell? For example:
I have an Excel file opened, in the cell A1 there is a date: 12.04.2003 (or any other date format). I want an Excel to save this document, but after I check the date of creation (modification) of the file under Windows, I want to receive the result 12.04.2004 (or any other, that was in the cell "A1" before pressing SAVE button).
I imagine, that there would have to be some external script running, that would change the system date for a moment, just after detection of pressing SAVE command.
I'm trying to make a vba that would save the file with the end date that will reference to a certain cell that user selects it. Working Sheet is a name of a File, and Current Sheet is a name of the panel where user will select the date.
In the code that i have, vb is making me a excel file and saves it with the title i putted.
I want him to save my files like this: example dd:mm:yyyy
Here is the Sub Export() Workbooks.Add ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _ "D:Sablon citiriCalea 13 Septembrie_Sablon citiri.xls", FileFormat:= _ xlExcel8, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False _ , CreateBackup:=False Call MsgBox("Va rog sa asteptati pana se creeaza registrul de lucru.
Some of the words are in romanian.
The bold text ,if is possible, it should be like this: D:Sablon citiriCalea 13 Septembrie_dd:mm:yyyy.xls (the date when i do the saving).
I'm trying to write a VBA code to save a file with the word "northeast" and then today's date. So today the file would be saved as "Northeast - April 16, 2009". I can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have any ideas?
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 want to create a macro that when executed changes the name of "File1" to "File1 - Edited 8-9-2012". With the date being today's date (variable). This file is going to be emailed to someone who will then execute this macro.
Is there a way to prompt the Save As window with the updated file name so the user can save the file where ever he/she wants?
We have an excel file which is made every thursday for comparison purposes etc. I've made an macro (excel 2003) which - on start - asks via an inputbox for the extension in date format for saving purposes. Later on, the macro will search for the same file but from last week to open it and copy/paste a 'comments' column into this new one. All went well, everybody happy. However it may be well possible that file is made and saved but with an extra extension: example:
dir to save = C:file
file when starts runs inputbox "Please enter a date (e.g. 2008-06-20)" The macro records this string as mydate:
Sub Start() Dim AnyString Dim MyStr Dim DirString Dim mynum 'As String Dim resp As Long Dim get_mynum Dim mydate
'Define extension for the file name to be saved and the correct path (dir) where this file will be stored. get_mynum: mynum = Application.InputBox("Enter the filename's extension to save in yyyy-mm-dd (e.g. 2008-06-30)", vbOKCancel) If mynum = False Then msgbox ("You do not want to continue? Ok, programm stopped") Exit Sub ElseIf mynum = "" Then..............
I have a report which I have written a macro to reformat, I then want to copy the sheet (Remake) containing the report into a new workbook as the only sheet in the new workbook. I want the sheet name to be changed from "Remake" to "Duty to Consider" and I want the new workbook to save itself automatically as "Duty to Consider - Month/Year" - in this case it would be "Duty to Consider - August 2008".
I think that a Pop Up box which lets me input the Month and Year of the report I am working on would be useful in naming the new workbook, if this box popped up when I click the button which runs my Macro that'd be great. Here is the code I am using to reformat my report. This works fine I just need the changes I mentioned. Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'this will turn on screen updating, making the macro run faster

I have an excel file which I use when I book keep journals in work. Each time I come across a new piece of bookkeeping I add to the file, name the sheet and index it. (I've attached a loose example for illustration) so the bookkeeping template.xls gets bigger every day.
Currently, when I book keep on a particular day, I open the template.xls workbook;
draft my journals;
and then manually copy the worksheets I have completed during the day from the template.xls workbook and paste the sheets into a new book and save the days bookkeeping as the current date.
With the file I have attached can someone show me how to write a macro and apply it to each of the buttons on the various work sheet tabs (each button will run the same macro).
Upon clicking a button, I would like the macro to;
Copy the active sheet into a new book and save the file as the current date.
Each subsequent click of a button the macro will check if the .xls file exists for the current date, if it does, then it will just copy the active worksheet to the file that has already been created.
In the new file which is saved as the current date, I need to remove the macro button and the hyperlink that reads back to index.
I have had some helpful macro's provided from another forum, however, the other forum does not appear to enable users to upload files, so I can't quite convey what it is I am trying to achieve.
I have this existing macro which saves each tab into a separate excel file. However, I'd like for it to also save them together in a new folder using the current month and date (named: QA Files May_05.06.14). The month and date would change according to current month/date. How would I incorporate that into this code? I am not good with macros.
Sub tabname() Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In Worksheets ws.Activate ws.Name = Range("D1").Value Next
Am following the below steps to add a function that saves the last saved time of the sheet continuously:
1- Click on ALT + F11. 2- Choose This Workbook. 3- Insert a module. 4- Paste the following code:
The I insert the defined function LSDate() into the cell i want the last saved date to appear in, but what happens after is that whenever i save the sheet this date doesnt update and when i click enter on the same cell it shows the error message #NAME?. So how can i solve this error and get the last save date updated instantly.
I recorded a macro to save my file as PDF and assigned the macro to a button. Easy. Now I would like to change my macro to pause when the file is saving to allow the user to enter a file name. If that is not possible, I'd like to reference a cell to use as the file name. I have gone through other posts and tried changing my macro, but always get an error. I am using Excel 2010. Following is my code for saving to pdf.
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.
I currently use the following code to create a duplicate file based on two cells within a directory and folder i specify. These cells consist of the team and week commencing date (mondays date of week which is cell 'Main Menu'!K8)
