Open File With Last/Lastest Saved Date

May 5, 2008

I'm looking for a code which is checking the file name first before opening and operating on it. File name format is filenameyyyymmdd.xls but the problem is files in that directory are saved irregularly (couple times a week) and I need to open the newest saved file.

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

Apr 24, 2014

I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls

Example: statistics_20140423_142754.xls

Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

Saving Cell Contents To XML File Saved As Current Workbook File Name

Dec 12, 2012

I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.

I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.

Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.

Code:
Sub Test()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim wb As Workbook
Set Rng = Range("A1:A2")
Set wb = Workbooks.Add
With wb
Rng.Copy

Open File Using VBA Where Date Changes Each Day

Therefore I need a code which is able to open the file, I know how to do this with a constant file name but the issue arises because the file from yesterday is saved with the date.

i.e. filename250712 etc..

Open File By Date

Nov 19, 2004

Probably not possible but can you write a macro to load a file which has a file name which always starts with Act2July followed by the date

i.e. Act2July191104.xls

but next friday it will be called Act2July261104.xls

This file is created by the network.

So can the macro pick up the Act2July part of the file name and then select the file dependent on when it was saved, so that the latest update is always loaded.

Date Not Being Updated When Open File

Apr 2, 2014

Previous to a PC meltdown a few months ago, when I opened my monthly customer list file the account date would automatically update to the current date. After the PC repair, reinstall of MS Office 2002 (same version as before the PC death) and copying of documents back to their old locations, I now have to update this manually for all accounts each time I open it. I have searched through the options and customize menus but there is no mention of this setting. Before, it just did it from day one (5 years ago) without any setup.

How do I get back the old auto-date update preference?

Open File That Changes Name Every Day Based On Today Date

Apr 16, 2014

I have the current code that opens our raw data file and copys it into my workbook. However it now turns out the file is saved everyday as a new file with todays date on the end. Here is my current code:

Sub CopyRaw()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets("PROD_SELECTION").Visible = True
Sheets("PROD_SELECTION").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

[Code] .....

Todays file is now in the name "I:SalesSales and MarketingMarketing List Product Selection Details (20140416)"

I know i can do this somehow using the Date function but the closest I have got is using

"YEAR(NOW())&RIGHT(MONTH(NOW())+100,2)&DAY(NOW())"

To generate todays date like so: "20140416" but I dont know how to get that into my code correctly so i open the file with that on the end.

Select / Open File Based On Today Date In Sheet Name

Sep 15, 2014

I managed to create some code that will connect to a workbook and take the data from there.

It is kind of SQL mixed with VBA. I just got this by finding it in google (I don't have the link handy now).

What the file does, is it will take 2 columns from a workbook called "Test.xls" and then take out 2 columns "Name" and "ID".

The only thing is, this is only a test and not the actual files I need to open. the files are always saved on the same folder, but the name is the day of the export of it. So when I export a file today, it will get 2014.09.10.xls. The sheet (only 1) will also get that name.

How could I change the below code that it will take that file based on today's date and read from the sheet with today's data?

VB:
Sub sbADO()
Dim sSQLQry As String
Dim ReturnArray
Dim Conn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim mrs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim DBPath As String, sconnect As String
'DBPath = ThisWorkbook.FullName

VBA Not Able To Call From DLL File When File Is Saved

Jun 19, 2014

I have an add-in called GeoDesiX. It is a geocoder/mapping tool that uses Google Maps API. It works fine, even on my machine, but I think it was built using 32-bit, while I have 64-bit Excel. When I open the add-in for the first time, an example workbook is below, it works great.

The problem is, that when I save any file with the map in it, the VBA no longer works, and an error pops up in the below code that says: "Object Reference not set to an instance of an object". This happens at the Err.Raise 65000, "GeodesiX", Result part. It looks like it just cannot find the DLL file, which is the "GeodesiX" in that error part. I was reading that it might be caused by switching between 64 bit and 32 bit, but could not figure out how to do it. I am guessing you need to put Private Function Declare PtrSafe, but I could not figure out syntax on how to get that to work. I understand that you will not be able to use these as it is an add-in, but maybe you just know what I need to do in order for the vba to call to the DLL file.

Deleting Code On The Saved File

Jan 11, 2008

I have a template that when it is opened it will automatically save the file to a specific location with the date in the file name.

Currently my code is

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "G:Shared"IT_New " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & ".xls", , , , , , xlShared
End Sub
Does anyone know a way to have this code disabled (either by deleting or making it all a comment) on the saved file (xls) so the speadsheet does not try and overwrite itself when I go back and open a previous days spreadsheet?

Inadvertently Saved Over An Important File

Jun 10, 2008

I'm not sure how I did it, but I opened up a new Excel file and accidentally saved it over a file I've been working on all afternoon. Is there any way to recover the original file (per the last time I saved it about 20 min ago)?

I looked in the "wastebasket" and only found files that I had specifically DELETED. But I didn't specifically delete this one, instead I saved over it.
