I am trying to write code to open a new (blank) workbook while in an existing workbook (I am then going to pass data between the two which is easy). When I try to record the code to get the syntax for opening a new workbook it will not record any code. I also need to name the new workbook based on text in a cell in the existing workbook. I just saw before posting this that the code;
will open a new workbook now I just need to name the new workbook based on text in my existing workbook.
I use excel 2002 but some of my office are on 97, i want to add a small workbook open event code which works for me but debugs for the others?? The code is basically, go to a tab, on that tab and that range sort..
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 I´m 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
If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................
I am trying to write code in the VB behind Excel that will allow me to navigate to an excel file (can be open or closed) and delete it. ie navigates to file xxx.xls at N:/xxx/xxx/ selects the file and then deletes it.
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
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.
I have a workbook with lots of code to automate several things that I do. It does a great job at doing things I need it to do, but it takes foreeeveeerrr to save the workbook. The code has made the workbook a large file, and it takes a few minutes to save it. Is there a way to skip saving the code everytime you open the workbook. I don't ever need to change to code so I don't need to save it every time.
I need the code to allow a user to select a column of their choice in an open workbook of their choice so that data can be lookuped up and changed. I am happy to create the code to do the lookup/changing, however the nearest I have found is the use of an inputbox which is limited to the active spreadsheet only. Some people have said the input box could be used over to another spreadsheet but I have not found that to work.
What I will need returned is the workbook name, sheet name and column. That will allow me to point to that and do the task.
This code could be used by 5 people and those 5 people could be running it on 20 different spreadsheets.
I thought this would be easy to find but it has eluded me. When using Excel normally, if you do a simple lookup formula, or create pivot function, excel prompts the user to select the workbook/sheet.
Is there a way to run a macro in an open workbook when the workbook becomes activated or deactivated? So if I have workbook A open with a macro in it and workbook B open as well, can I have the macro run on workbook A when that becomes the workbook I see on my screen?
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.
I am making a spreadsheet that sorts and pastes, but I need to know if I can add a code to the Sort and Paste Macro that will open the second spread sheet needed without just already having it open and using the
I created folder on my desktop to hold various documents. I have master excel document which contains forms and command buttons that open documents from same folder. Is there a way to change code instead of having full file path to specify current directory. I'm worried that if I move this folder to another location then my open file button will not work since location is changed.
Also when I open with command button word document, I have a button on word document to close. I can close document but word application is still active. Can I close word application with the document at the sam time. This is the code I'm using: "ActiveWindow.Close"
I currently have a macro set up to run once a workbook is saved/ closed. This works fine unless tehre is more than one workbook open. When I try it with more than 1 different workbook open I get a run error.
My code begins:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
and then performs the macro. I don't really want to specify the filename as this is liable to change. Is there anyway of adding a "this workbook" command to the text string, and if so where would it go?
Sub Collect_OS_Data() With Application .ScreenUpdating = False .EnableEvents = False End With Dim fso As Object, fld As Object, fil As Object, fldPath As String, wbSrc As Workbook, wbCur As Workbook fldPath = "Q:PublicPAYMENTS Q&RREPORTSSuspense Activity BUSINESSOngoing - Suspense BUSINESS - Activity Reports" Set wbCur = ActiveWorkbook ActiveSheet.Name = "Raw Data" Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set fld = fso.getfolder(fldPath) On Error GoTo ErrHandler For Each fil In fld.Files
This opens all spreadsheets within a folder and takes the data i require out of each one and pastes to a new workbook, however the files are password protected. Can you add into the code to open each spreadsheet as a readonly copy and paste data and then close without a save prompt or denying the save prompt ?
I found an outlook plugin that saves any incoming emails as text. It also has an option to run an exe or bat file on saveing the email to text. I have a macro in a worksheet that will process the email to a database and send out a response.
What I am trying to figure out is how to run the macro in the worksheet whenever an incoming email is saved. So I have the 2 components that I need, I just need to tie them together so that everything is automated.
Does anyone know how to achieve this? Can I use a batch file to open an excel workbook and run a macro? Or can I create a standalone macro (outside of excel) that can open the excel file and run the macro.
i have a button on my workbook1 that opens another workbook (lets call it workbook2) and automatically runs a macro on opening it. Once opened i have a button on workbook2 to close itself. I then go back to see workbook1. This all works but then when i click on the button to open the workbook2 again it opens but the macro does not run.
The problem is that LastRow does not seem to look in the workbook that the macro has open, and always returns a value of 1. If I place the sheet that i want to run the macro on, in the workbook that contains the macro there is no problem. What do I need to do to fix this.

Trying to Figure out how to open another Excel (based on an template). From Dok1 I start A Macro To Open Doc2.xlt (using Workbooks.Add). Then I Would Like To Write to a Cell But I end Up Writing To The Cells Of Dok1 Even Though It's Dok2 That Is Visable and Activated. I allso do this with word, I have no problems there (Excel to Word) But there i'm using Bookmarks To transfer data. As far as i know , you can't use bookmarks in excel.
I am looking to check if its open, if it is, then copy the row, if not, then close it.
I am still new to vb, so learning as I go, but looked at many other posts, and there are so many ways i have seen to open one, I'm not sure which is the best, and none that I have seen show me if they check if its open.

This code opens a msgbox that asks for a password and then unlocks certain cells based on what the password is. I have 140 of these workbooks. I need to be able to open them all and change one cell in each file, save it and close. I've gotten the macro written to open, change and save the files, but I am still having to type the 'password' 140 times. Is there a way to bypass it?
