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:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Usersmy.selfDesktopDaily Backup.xlsm", _
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?
Pls see below codes, the codes can record down changes made "from" and "to" and put on the "Log" sheet, however it is unable to capture the original values when I first open the file and make the changes.
Also, how can I put the value of "Now" in column B?
Code: Dim PreviousValue Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Value PreviousValue Then
I have made an excel spreadsheet. The area with data exactly fills my screen.
When I send it to other colleagues, it perfectly fills their screen too. But for some colleagues the data area is either too big for their screen or takes up a small proportion of their screen based on their screen resolution. I would like the area with data to perfectly fill the screen of all people who will access the file.
I am thinking that I would do an automatic event so that I can change the settings upon opening the file. I have Excel VBA programming for Dummies which explains about automatic events but I have no idea what sort of sub procedure to use.
I would like to have a cell that gives the date of the last save made on the file itself. Like, it has been saved on Oct-3rd for te last time, I open it on Oct-10th and see thru that cell that all last changes were made on Oct-3rd.
I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.
This is the path: [url]
So the command is this: Workbooks.Open [url]
Links are not actual links
So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.
I have a file that I save with a new version number each time I make major changes. The file name currently is: "Telephony Equipment Inventory v26 (Summary).xlsm". The "26" is the variable number. give me the vba code to ensure I open the file with the highest version number?
I have a workbook template that will have multiple tabs. I would like to have it that when you open this workbook the date populates in A1 for each tab and is static. At that point they can save with another name leaving the template intact so when you open it again (on another day) it will populate with the current date. Is this possible and if so how?
I have an Excel Workbook with Showcase Queries embedded into it.
Upon a manual open, the user is prompted to either refresh data or keep data since last save, the user then has to enter a username and password to allow the query to access the database.
Using the code below to open the workbook, no such prompts are given. Is the code overriding the prompts and automatically refreshing the data without password? [Given nature of data, visual validation of refresh is not possible]
If not, how can we code a data refresh through showcase query with user/pw req's?
I am trying to do something simple but not quite sure how to do it. I am using the GetImportFileName and then selecting information of one sheet from that file and copying to another workbook. I need to know how to then get back to the file I have opened to search the next sheet and so on. The problem I have is with this line.
Sub GetImportFileName() Dim Finfo As String Dim FilterIndex As Integer Dim Title As String Dim FileName As Variant
' Set up list of file filters Finfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"
' Display *.* by default FilterIndex = 5
' Set the dialog box caption Title = "Select a file to Import"
' Get the Filename FileName = Application.GetOpenFilename(Finfo, FilterIndex, Title)
I have some VBA code that allows the user to open a linked powerpoint presentation from an Excel workbook. It works well but it does not ask the the user to update links so if the Excel book has changed the powerpoint stays the same. I am very new to VBA so I tend to copy things that work but don't always know why! Anyone out there know how to get it to update links automatically or at least ask the user to do so? Here is the code:
I would like to open a certain file everyday. However each day this file is created and named with the date, for example Production_FixYYYYMMDD.csv, in VBA how do I accomplish this? The alternative I could think of is to create a .bat file to copy that file over to a separate directory and rename it Production_Fix.csv and just use that, but if that batch file fails to run that would cause issues.
Any idea why a file in my XLSTART folder does not open when I start Excel?
I had a cell in a file (not one of the files in XLSTART folder) that was refered to by thousands of other cells. I clicked on Trace Dependents and Excel then spent the next 10 minutes trying to point to all the cells. I eventually gave up and used the Windows Task Manager to close Excel. Ever since then Excel doesn't open 1 of the 3 files I have in the XLSTART folder.
I have a 14.3 MB xlsb file that I am trying to open with no success as it just hangs. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the data out of there? I would like to be able to get the data to a pivot and copy the pivot to another file to try and reduce the load on one file. I tried to import to Access but was told I was using a file version before 2007, which is impossible since it is a xlsb file.
