Modify Existing Macro To Copy To Different Workbook Instead Of Open Workbook?

Dec 7, 2012

Here's my macro:

Code:
Sub CopyRow()'
'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied.
'
Dim cCell As Range
Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1)
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Rows("2:2").Select

[Code] .....

Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity
cost

Copy Range To New Workbook & Close Existing Workbook

Jun 30, 2008

I have a very brief question

dlgAnswer = Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show
Selection.Copy
Windows("Derivative YK pricing Mod G.xls").Activate
Columns("B:B").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
Range("C5").Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Windows("EXPORT1.xls").Activate
ActiveWindow.Close

As you can see, I open a workbook with the dlgAnswer, I was wondering how I could close that opened workbook

Currently I have

Windows("EXPORT1.xls").Activate
ActiveWindow.Close

however the workbook will not always be called export1.xls, I want it to close whichever one I opened earlier.

Open An Existing Workbook

Aug 13, 2009

I tried to open an existing Excel workbook, it tells me that it is already open. There is nothing on the screen. I closed Excel (using 2003 version) and restarted computer also. I tried to open the file again - nothing shows up on the screen. When I attempt to open the file again I get a message that says "(file name).xls is already open.

Reopening will cause any changes you made to be discarded. Do you want to reopen (file name).xls?". Even if I reopen the file, it still does not show up on the screen.

Macro To Copy Data From Two Workbook To Another Where All Workbooks Are Open

Jun 7, 2014

I have 3 workbooks open. 1 is my working file and I name it as "Final[date].xlsm". The other 2 files are my source files which are also open are named as source1.xlsx and source2.xlsx. Both the source files has only one tab/sheet as "Sheet1". My objective is to bring the contents of the source file to my working file in 2 different sheets. all the contents in Sheet1 of "Source1.xlsx" should be paste.values only to the "Final[date].xlsm" with a sheet name "BankDetails". This will enable the user also to replace the old data in "BankDetails" tab. The "source2.xlsx" sheet1 has a different situation. I need to copy only the cells with values, not the entire cells, because it has to be pasted (values only) to range C2:L. I have formulas in the other columns before C and after L.

Take note that my working file name is changing every based on the date while my source file has always same file name.

Can I Change A Setting Somewhere To Make Close Its Default Blank Workbook When I Open An Existing One

Feb 9, 2007

I have Excel 2002. If I start the program it opens with a blank workbook, called "Book 1".

If I then open an existing workbook, I have two Excel buttons in the Windows taskbar: the one I just opened, and the blank one titled Book 1.

At work I have Excel 2003. The blank "Book 1" is also there when I start the program, but if I then open an existing workbook, the Book 1 goes away. I like this way better.

My question is: Is this just the way versions 2002 vs. 2003 work, or can I change a setting somewhere to make Excel 2002 close its default blank workbook when I open an existing one?

Macro To Copy Folders To Path Of Open Workbook Based On Cell Values

Aug 3, 2014

I have an Excel sheet that contains a few thousand folder paths in the first column. The first few cells in the column look similar to below.

C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010360
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010361
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010362
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010363
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010364
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010365

I am trying to create a macro that will copy any folders that exist in any of the paths listed in the first column. The folders should be copied to the path of the open workbook containing the macro. Below is the macro I have currently, much of which was taken from information I found in this thread [URL]....

VB:

Sub wrapper3()
x = 1
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
While Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1) <> ""
v = InStrRev(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), "")
dest = ActiveWorkbook.Path & Mid(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), v, 99)

[Code]...

This code seems to work fine if all of the folders exist to be copied. My problem is that some do not and it is creating a "Path Not Found" error for which I need a fix. If the folder doesn't exist at the path nothing should be copied and the next path can be evaluated.

Copy Worksheet To An Existing Workbook

Dec 20, 2009

this is the macro code I am using to copy the currently selected worksheet to an existing workbook:

Sub test2()

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsManagerDesktop PS444Log.xls"
Windows("PS444.xls").Activate
Sheets("sales").Select
Sheets("sales").Copy Before:=Workbooks("PS444Log.xls").Sheets(1)

End Sub
The source workbook is named PS444
The receiving workbook is named PS444Log
The sheet to be copied and moved is named sales

The source workbook is already open and the code is executed by clicking a button on the worksheet.

If I perform the steps manually the worksheet in the source workbook gets copied correctly into the receiving workbook.

The problem lies when I try to execute the code, the source worksheet doesn't get copied to the receiving workbook.
The receiving workbook gets opened but the worksheet does not get transfered.
Neither of the workbooks are protected nor are either of the worksheets protected in the workbooks.
Can someone tell me why the code is not copying the sheet to the receiving workbook.
I developed the code using the macro recorder so I don't understand why it doesn't work.

Insert Existing Working Code From Another Workbook Into Own Workbook

Jan 14, 2014

The amazing code I saw was from this thread Auto lock cells after data entry when file saved... where the code was made by Jafaar Tribak.

It basically locks cells that have had data inputted into them when the file is saved (with a nice prompt warning of the used cells being locked.

This is Jafaar's file [URL]

And this is my file where I'm trying to make it work in the "Employee data entry" Sheet:

[URL]

And finally this is the file after I tried to copy the code over : [URL]

Trying to make it so that in the employee data entry sheet locks cells after an employee inputs some data into said cells.

I thought that by setting an "inputrange" on the employee data entry sheet the code would track it down automatically but maybe I'm completely wrong. I cant see anything wrong with it (probably because I"m not that good at vba) but I fear I may have left out something really simple!

I seem to disable my other macros when i try to insert this code in (I have a macro that when you click on a cell a calendar pops up so you can click on a day from the calendar rather than typing out the date)

Copy Data From One Workbook To Updated Workbook Using Macro

May 1, 2012

I am creating a spreadsheet to provide to a group of about 40 people. The spreadsheet allows each member to track the referrals they receive and give. I need to plan on creating updates for the spreadsheet and want to make it so they can easily transfer their data to the most current version in the future. Here is a breakdown of the workbook:

Worksheets:
Members
Lists
Referrals Given
Referrals Received
Totals
Formulas

I need to copy the data that they have input from the following worksheets:
Referrals Given
Referrals Received

Here is a breakdown of the "Referrals Received" worksheet:
A1:V4 - Data that will not change and includes many named cells
A5:Nxxx - Dynamic Named Range where they input their data
O5:Vxxx - Contains formulas

I need to be able to copy
A5:Vxxxxx
from the old workbook to the new

Some side items to note:
There is VBA in the worksheet of
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
and included in the code is an Unprotect & Protect code to always keep the sheet protected

I figure whatever works for this sheet will work for all the sheets.

Open Workbook & Copy To It

Jul 5, 2007

I am trying to write a piece of vb code that opens a workbook and enters some data into it, saves it as a different file name and closes it.

Basically, I have a worksheet with two sheets. One is a list of a few values (order number, description, date), the other has three cells which the user enters the values into, and a command button. When pressed it transfers the data into the table on the first sheet.

I then need it to open a workbook C:/ewr.xls and put these values into this, rename it as ewr180.xls, (where 180 is the order number) and save it

I'm almost there but just cant seem to get the values into it

I know i must be missing something so simple, any help would be much appreciated.

Private Sub createEWR_Click()
Dim ewnnum As Integer
Dim descr As String
Dim ewndate As String

' enter new row with data

MacRO: Check If WorkBook Open. If Not, Open It.

Sep 27, 2006

I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code Im using for tranfering the sheet

Sub Transfer_Sluttet()
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2")
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it

Save A Copy Of The Open Workbook

Dec 4, 2009

I know that the line in my code Worksheets.Copy is NOT what I need to have to make this work, but with it it's the closest I could get to what I want.

I want the user to be able to click the SAVE command button, be allowed to either accept or change the default save options, save the current workbook and then go right back to the form that has the SAVE command button. Sounds simple, I know, but when you don't know the right commands to save the WORKBOOK, not just the WORKSHEETS, it becomes a P.I.A.

I know there's a lot there, but here's my code, which is just a slightly altered version of the code by Ron de Bruin:

Private Sub SaveData_Click()

'If no date has been selected then don't allow SAVE
If PubDateLabel.Caption = "" Then

MsgBox "Publication Date not set. You must select a date before saving.", vbCritical, "No Publication Date!"
Exit Sub

End If
