Open Workbook Based On Cell Value

Jun 1, 2007

I am trying to make a spreadsheet that has a macro that will allow me/user to open a specific workbook in another folder based on a specific cell value in the active spread sheet. I.E. if cell B2 has a value of 7101010 the macro will open that .xls file when used or any other part number typed into B2.

Open Workbook Based On Cell Name?

Jul 30, 2012

Ok, so I have some code that currently opens workbooks via directly calling them in the code via the normal open command. These workbooks belong to individual employees and this method works fine until a new person needs to be added to the process. I currently have to go into the code and add that person's workbook to the code.

Is there a way to instead pull a list of workbooks from say range D1 through D20 and open all workbooks that are listed in this range?

Open A Workbook And Run 1 Of 4 Macros Based On 3 Cell Values

Jul 30, 2009

I'd like to automatically run 1 of 4 macros depending on some criteria. Every workbook created has, unfortunately, the same worksheet name, so that leaves the only differences between the 4 possible loaded workbooks in the cells area and even those can be similiar in many ways. But....I found some criteria to separate all 4 workbooks...Here they are...

run macro 1 if this

1. Worksheet name says "Screen"
2. Cell H1 has the word "Lead"


run macro 2 if this

1. Worksheet name says "Screen"
2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell
3. Cell H1 has the word "Lead"


run macro 3 if this

1. Worksheet name says "Screen"
2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell
3. Cell N2 has the word "Delivered"

run macro 4 if this

1. Worksheet name says "Screen"
2. Cell B1 has the word "records" somewhere in the cell
3. Cell N2 has the word "Bevel"

I don't know if this can be done, but if so, that would be fantastic! I'm thinking that the macro would have to be "global" and in the user's personal workbook?

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.

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

1
2
3
4
5
6
7

Open Workbook, Find Sheet That Contains Cell Value From Active Workbook

I'm trying to figure out a way to find a specific sheet in a workbook that does not contain the macro. Within the macro I have a cell which holds the name of the specific sheet I would like to find but I can't get it to work for some reason...

Set sourcewb = Workbooks.Open"Active 20080616.xls"

Sheets("officen").Select
RowCount = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
Range("B2").Select.............................

Make Workbook Open- Open Correct Month Workbook

Jul 8, 2006

I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook

open macro-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim dTime As Date
dTime = Time
If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _
dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then
ImportData
End If
End Sub

This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?

Open Workbook With Name In Cell

Jun 20, 2007

I would like to create a macro (in a destination spreadsheet) which will open up a (source) spreadsheet. The file path and spreadsheet name will be manually entered into cell A1 (on the destination spreadsheet) so the macro would need to refer to this cell to find the correct source spreadsheet to open.

I would then like to attach this code to a command button so that the action above is executed when the button is pressed.

Automatically Open New Workbook After 1st Workbook Open 4 Seconds

Nov 6, 2009

I have a presentation that I open from a short-cut. After the "Welcome Page" is opened, I want to open a second workbook in a new instance of Excel after 4 seconds.

I think that I can open the new instance of excel, but I don't know how to activate the macro after 4 seconds.

I'm sure there is a function someplace for this that can be used in a macro.

Then, after the second Workbook is opened, I want the Welcome Page "Workbook" closed, leaving the second Worbook open.

Use Cell Data To Open File/Workbook

Aug 24, 2006

I have a cell that is pulling data from a separate file, no problem there. However, I want the name of one of the folders within that path to change monthly (eg. by monthly name). How can I make a file path incorporate a cell link within a filepath (eg. instead of it saying 'Aug 06' I want it to refer to cell A1 which reads 'Aug 06').

Open Workbook Using Name In Cell & Copy Data

Mar 16, 2008

I have a VBA-coded macro in an Excel workbook that is to open another existing workbook -- a .xls file, not .csv -- copy data from it, paste that into the original workbook where the macro resides, then close the source workbook.

If I use the debugger to step through the macro -- putting a breakpoint at its first executable line, run the macro, then F8 step through it, it works fine. (With delays at the open, close statements.) Free running, it doesn't. I suspect it's a timing issue, that the macro runs full tilt even though the new workbook isn't yet open -- but I don't know how to remedy that.

Here is the situation and the simplified code (the actual macro does a lot more, of course):

Main workbook: Two sheets, "Parameters" that has the fully-qualified filename for the desired source .xls in A1; and "Data", into which I want to paste data from that source.

Source workbook: Single sheet, "Sheet1"

Macro code. For simplicity, it is trying to copy/paste all of the source worksheet's content:

Sub Go()
'
' Go Macro
' Test of getting data from another spreadsheet
'
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+G
'
Dim SourceFile As String
Dim HomeBook As String
Dim OtherBook As String
Sheets("Parameters").Select
SourceFile = Range("A1").Value
HomeBook = ActiveWorkbook.Name

right after the open, hoping that might cause a dwell for the open to complete.

When I step through it, the Locals view has all the parameters, getting set properly. If I try to simply run it, it stalls at the opened source workbook, the Locals view is empty, no data has been transferred into the initiating workbook.

If I place the breakpoint after the open, it is not reached. (I have the VBA open.) Hitting F8 then yields a VB error window, "Compile Error" "Expected: To"

Open File And Move Cell Data To New Workbook

Sep 12, 2006

I created a new workbook that contains a list of additional design requirements than our old checklist. These requirements are answered by placing a 1, 0 or .5 in the cell next to the requirement (1 = yes, 0 = no and .5 for half credit). I can't simply go to the old workbook/worksheet and copy the results into the new workbook/worksheet as the rows of requirements don't match up since some requirmements have been deleted and new ones added between the old and new checklists.
I created a command button in the new checklist and what I want it to do is:
- open a dialog box that lets me select the old checklist file (these are all excel files, but with different names).
- go the the proper worksheet in the old file (DFT Checklist) and copy a column of results from the old checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet) and paste them into the proper cells of the new checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet).
- The macro would know (i'll have to tell it) which requirements and cells are still valid answers between the old checklist and the new one. It would disregard requirements that are no longer in the new checklist.
- Once complete, it would close the old checklist without saving.

Open Workbook Where Named Cell Contain Name & Path, Copy Range And Paste Values

May 19, 2009

I am successfully opening a .csv file using a variable value stored in a named range in my Main file (the variable includes the directory and path).
I copy data from the .csv file to the Main file then I need to close the .csv file without saving but I want to do that by using the

Windows("xxxx").Activate

command where "xxxx" is the namedrange in my Main file which stores the .csv filename (without the directory and path prefix).

I can use the

ActiveWindow.ActivatePrevious

command but if I have another workbook open, this one closes instead of the .csv file I opened from the macro.

I realise this is probably very basic and I've searched the forums but can't find any identical postings.

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

ActiveX Combobox - Linked Cell Reference Lost After Save / Close And Re-open Workbook

Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.
