While opening one Excel file I get an error message saying that a 2nd file could not be opened because it cannot be found. I do not want this 2nd file to open. WHere do I find the "command" that is telling this 2nd file to open.
I use the vba to open excel file. like workbooks.open filename:=abc.xlsm but I found that if the file is opened by other. Excel still open the file but it will not notify user that it is opened as read only.
Would you add more line to notify user if the file is opened by other?
Can you suspend a userform after open an excel file from the userform? I have a userform that allows the opening of excel files (one at a time), but the user has to close the userform to access the excel file. Can I work with the file while the userform is still active?
Hi, I'm trying to use a userform to open a previously saved file to avoid having the users dig through the folder and maybe work on the wrong file.
I have a file I have created to test if the code works, but the macro keeps giving me the reponse I set in case it doesn't find the file.
The data for Account (Account1 and Subaccount1) is coming from a text box, as well as for category (Category1). The data for Company is an optionbutton frame with 4 options for the user to select from.
I am working on a project where i am having 8 excel files saved at diffrent location so i want to create userform which will open particular file location and from that user can select the file which he want and then can go further. so i need a coding so that user will be prompt 8 times with file location. for eg. once user select particular file from location then again this code route him to select next file from file location. is it possible??
I tried using below code but in this code when i run userform file is not opening but when i run this code mannually by pressing F8 desired file is opening i dont know what is glitch in this ? another problem i am facing is not able to understand how to repeat this steps again to open another file using this code??
VB: Private Sub Commandbutton1_Click() Dim f As FileDialog Set f = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker) With f
Two workbook, A & B. Code in B copies some data over to a sheet in workbook A.
It does this not problems if A has remained open, but if it has just been opened, I get a "subscript out of range" error at the "With Workbooks" line.
The bit in red is what I have recently added to allow workbook A to be closed unless needed. Since adding this, the debug error has emerged, even though there was no problem when workbook A remained permanently open.
I have a userform that opens, and allows the user to enter data into it for each row where a specific cell is blank. If the user hasn't updated in a couple of days that could be 15-20 entries that need to be made. Currently when the user clicks the close button the userform closes the form for the current row and shows for the next row, acting more like a Next button. I would like to be able to assign Previous, Next and Exit, where exit closes all instances of the userform, and not just the one the user currently sees. Even if we cant do previous and next, the exit button is really important sot he user doesnt have to click through in order to exit the userform.
The following is the code that brings up the array, followed by userform code
Code: Sub ErrLogSupEntry() 'Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set wsErrLog = Worksheets("Error Log") UserName = Environ("UserName") If UserName = "09070403" Then
I'd like to keep a progress bar userform I created in front of other windows that are opened by a module that is scanning through the data within each file. While files are opened, I want teh progress bar to stay shown at all times. Within the module opening and scanning the documents I show the userform as follows: userform1.show false
I've serached the site and found a link that supposedly explained how to do this but the site is worthless.
I have excel vba code to open .xls files on my server. Files to open are chosen by the user via a UserForm within my app, it shows them all their files in their directory on my server. How can I open their files (.xls) that they select but DISABLE the VBA from being able to run/execute, if they have any attched to the file?
I now have all code in place to open the file no problem, I just need to know how to disable the VBA part from being "turned on" when the file opens.
I run a macro which runs saves the active file to a different location to ensure that I retain the original like so -
If ActiveWorkbook. Name = "KEY_DATA_CFT77" + ".xls" Then ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _ "H:HOME imcEXCELKEY_DATA_2006KEY_DATA_2006_01KEY_DATA_CFT77_01.xls", FileFormat:= _ xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False _ , CreateBackup:=False End If .................................
the small code i'm writing just needs to do the following:
1. open an .xslx file selected by the user 2. copy 2 worksheets from that file to the current one 3. close the selected file without saving it.
This is my code:
VB: Sub GetData() MsgBox ("Please select a file"), vbOKOnly Master = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xlsx), *.xlsx", Title:="Please select a file")
Opening the file works, but the last 3 lines don't because i don't understand how to declare "Master": however i dim it (workbook, object, variant...) i get an error on the GetOpenFilename line. If i don't declare it, i get an error while trying to copy the worksheets.
The Macro asks the user to point at the location of a report, it then copies information out of that report and pastes it into a master sheet. The part I am having trouble with is closing the file that data has been copied from.

I was working on a tax file yesturday, just a long long list of receipts. and the file is password protected. However, I went to open it today, and I get a message that says: "Filename.xls cannot be opened. the file may be read only, or you may be trying to access a read only location. Or, the server the file is located on may not be responding."
It's on my USB Drive. I've tried copying it to my HD so I can play with a copy, but no dice. When I try that, I get another error message, : Cannot copy Filename.xls. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I've tried the various fixed suggested in the excel help files to no avail. I did a search on the forum, but didn't find anything that seemed to apply or help me. The computer I'm trying to open it on has Office 2003, the one I most recently worked on the file on has office XP. Not sure if this was a source of the problem. Doesn't seem like it should be. Hasn't been in the past. I'm not even getting to the dialogue box asking for my password yet.

I am trying to refer to an open file in VBA script.
The script below is asking the user to open a file from which data is copied. I am trying to refer back to this open file but as the file name and path are not mentioned in the script, I am not able to.
