Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

The format of B5 looks like - 13/08/2014 16:39

The file path has folders for each year in format "yyyy" with each year having sub folders for each month in format "mm".

The file name is just the date only and is formatted "dd.mm.yy" e.g. 13.08.14

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Save A File With A Date Taken From A Cell

Jan 26, 2007

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.

Save File As Cell Value (Date)

Jan 4, 2008

I'm working on creating a computerised invoicing system for where I work, and right now I'm creating a Day Book file.

I want the name of the file to simply be the date which it was created, in YYYYMMDD format. However, I keep getting the error message and am not sure what has gone wrong.

Please note that in the day book template, cell F1 contains the formula

=TEXT(E1,"yyyymmdd")

which may be useful to know in the later part of the code.

from the code below?

Private Sub DayBook_Click()

Select Case MsgBox("Proceed? (Ensure that a Day Book has not already been created)", vbYesNo Or vbQuestion Or vbDefaultButton1, "Day Book Creation")
Case vbYes
Dim strName As String

'copy today's date from invoice template
Range("H4").Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Selection.Copy

Collect Date From User For Save File Name

Jun 21, 2008

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

Copy Into New Workbook & Save With Date In File Name

Aug 7, 2008

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

'This will select the DTC Tab and remove rows 1-4
Sheets("DTC").Select
Rows("1:4").Select
Range("A4").Activate
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

'This will add a filter to the data to remove duplicate rows
Range("A1").Select
Range("A1:J1307").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, Unique:=True

'This will copy the data on the DTC tab and copy it into the Remake Tab

Copy A Sheet Into A New Book And Save File Name As The Current Date

Jul 5, 2009

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.

Save As Date Macro Works But Not On Mondays

Jun 5, 2013

I created a report that runs each weekday morning, using data from the previous workday.

I have written code that saves the file into a LAN directory as "BEST CASH MM-DD-YYYY" with the variables being the previous day's date.

My problems is that when I run the report on Monday morning using Friday's data, of course it's including Sunday's date and not that previous Friday...

Here's the test code I'm working with right now; I'm using a folder on my desktop until I get the code right, then I'll change it to the proper LAN directory:

ChDir "C:UsersC700MDesktopTEST"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= "C:UsersC700MDesktopTEST" & "BEST CASH " & Format(Date - 1, "mm-dd-yyyy"), FileFormat:= xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False

Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

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.
