Open Workbook With Visual Basic (VB)

Jul 10, 2007

I am trying to open a closed workbook, auto update and save. Here is the code i have so far:


Dim xlBook As Excel.Workbook

Try

xlBook.Add()
xlBook.Open(FileName:="C:Old Tanglewood Numbers.xls", UpdateLinks:=1)

Now, the xlBook.Add() line is something I just added. I am not sure if it works but i dont think it does. Everytime i try to use Workbooks.Open it tells me that i need to decalre Workbooks, which i thought i did with xlBook. Anyway, I cant get it to work, something is throwing it out of whack.

Using VBA Code In Visual Basic: Develop A Stand Alone Program In Visual Basic

Jun 3, 2006

I would like to do is develop a stand alone program in Visual Basic ( not in Excel VBA) to update the price file in our Portfolio system automatically using the downloaded Excel format file csv extention file from the BigCharts. But before that, I need to export the *.pri file from our Portfolio system in to Excel which still saves as *.pri extention. Then once it updates, I import the updated *.pri file back in our Portfolio program. I understand that the Excel VBA code can be incorporated in Visual Basic code provided there is an object declaration for Excel file (In this case eventhough the both files are in Excel format, they don't have xls extention). how to use external files and Excel VBA code in Visual Basic?

Below is the code that I currently have in Visual Basic. What I'm trying to accomplish is using the ticker (eg. msft) as a keyword search to look up in the price file. If found , the price of that ticker from the test.csv file will be copied in to the price file which is test.pri. I haven't ran it yet.

Sub UpdatePrice(BigChartPath As String, BigChartName As String, AxysPricePath As String, AxysPriceName As String)
'Below are Excel VBA codes
'Uses the test.csv to look up tickers in test.pri and update the price in it
Dim PriceFile As Workbook, BigChartFile As Workbook
Dim PriceFileSheet As Worksheet, BigChartSheet As Worksheet
Dim MaxRows As Long
Dim PriceFileRow As Long
Dim BigChartRow As Long
Dim BigChartFound As Boolean
Call CheckBookOpen(BigChartPath & BigChartName)
Call CheckBookOpen(AxysPricePath & AxysPriceName)
Set BigChartFile = Workbooks(BigChartName) 'Big Chart website imported CSV file saved as test.csv...............

Macro Not Working While Visual Basic Is Open?

May 1, 2013

I have been running a macro on a continuous loop to collect data for months. Yesterday I added something small to the macro and now it does not select cells. I tried closing excel, opening a new page and have a simple macro

Sub Please_Work ()
Range('A4').Select
End Sub

If I have VBA open and step through it (F8), it does NOT work. If I run the sub (play button), it does NOT work. If I close VBA, and run the macro it DOES work.

Macro Has Errors If Visual Basic Editor Is Not Open

Nov 12, 2009

I've been helping another user create a workbook that dynamically adds, renames and deletes worksheets from a "Main Sheet".

I have got the whole thing figured out and running to satisfaction, except...

The macro runs fine if the Visual Basic Editor is open. If the editor is closed while the macro is run, I get "Runtime Error '9': Subscript out of range"

Any ideas what could be casing this? The errors occur when attempting to add sheets.

Visual Basic Code - Open Local PDF At Specific Anchor From Excel?

Aug 8, 2012

I want to create a series of hyperlinks in excel to pdf's stored on a local drive/CD as a kind of database. This much I can do with a nifty bit of code I saw someone put up here as follows;

Sub Run_Local_PDF()
MyPath = "C:Program FilesAdobeReader 9.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe"
myFile = "C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktoppdffilename.pdf"
Shell MyPath & " " & myFile, vbNormalFocus
End Sub

Which works great and is sitting snug in a module. However, the document I am linking to has various anchors in it which exisit as sectionheaders. One of which is "Contents".

Is there a quick way I can alter my exisitng VB code to open at one of these anchors?

Visual Basic Editor Font Settings For A Specific Workbook Only

Aug 4, 2008

I only want to change some Visual Basic Editor (VBE) font settings on the active workbook, but whenever I do so within the Editor tab of the Options dialog it changes the VBE font settings for all workbooks.

Is it possible to change just the active workbook VBE font settings or do these settings reside in some *.ini file that once changed, globally changes the setting(s).

Visual Basic To Access Web

Aug 4, 2007

My company "makes widgets". Each "type of widget" is associated in our internal database with a record locator (five alpha characters). Our company website can also use that record locator to pull up a webpage specifically dedicated to that widget. In addition to the webpage itself, the website also creates an expanded URL which contains additional information about that widget.

I'd like my macro to take a list of record locators, open up the company website related to each specific widget, pull back the expanded URL, and do some text management with the URL to populate other parts of the spreadsheet.

For example, if my record locator is "ABCDE", my macro would go to the website, "http://www.widgets.com/ABCDE". The site then redirects to an expanded URL: "http://www.widgets.com/whole-bunch-of-data-about-the-ABCDE-widget". I'd hope to write a macro which pulls back the expanded URL and does some magic with the "whole bunch of data" part. I've been told that the MSHTML library would be useful for a project of this type. I've been able to connect my spreadsheet to that library, but then I'm not sure what to do with it.

Lost Visual Basic Project

Oct 24, 2008

Have a project going and have had a disturbing trend develop. I'm working in Excel 2003. Upon opening the file and enabling macros, I started receiving File/Path errors, at which point it would shut down the application. When opened, I have a splash that would come up, but it wouldn't go to the next userform. At this point I would get the error message and the file would be closed. If I then reopened the file, disabled macros, saved under a different file name, and then reopened with macros enabled, everything worked fine, until I shut it down and then tried to reopen, at which point the same error would occur.

Lately I have simply been getting the Microsoft Excel dialogue box telling me an unexpected error occurred and it had to be shut down. I'm at a loss for what is causing this. The last time this happened, when Excel recovered the file, it told me a repair had been done, and the repair was to basically delete all of the VBA code from the file.

Visual Basic Compiler - Odd Performance

Nov 23, 2009

I am encountering a situation wherein each line of VBA code is essentially compiled as I type on that line, instead of when I move to a different line. For example, if the code I entered is incorrect, the compiler waits about half a second and then turns it red. Also, if I enter a space, it deletes it immediately.

Visual Basic Opens Automatically

Oct 19, 2009

I have a VB problem, and it's driving me nuts.

Whenever I run a macro on excel the Microsoft VB editor opens and shows me what the macro looks like. It also runs the macro.
Now, I would very much like it to keep running macros, but I really don't need to see my code every time. It gets really annoying, and I need to run about 40 or 50 different macros on one sheet. How can I make it go away?

PS! It's Excel 2007 for students, Norwegian version.

Visual Basic - Not Allowing Cell Entry

If Statement - Visual Basic For An Input Form

Dec 10, 2009

I am creating a user input form where the user can enter data about what they have eaten on a certain day. I am using radio buttons, so when the radio button has been clicked, it automatically puts something into cell A1. What has been put into cell A1 will then be used to say what is in the combo box named Cbo_FoodItem. I have used the following
With Me.Cbo_FoodItem
If Worksheet("na").Range("A1") = "carbs" Then
Cbo_FoodItem.List = Worksheet("foodtable").Range("B2:B215").Value
End If
End With

However, when i try to test it, i get an error which then highlights the "Worksheet" after IF and says "Sub or Function not defined".
Obviously there is something wrong with the formulae, however i cannot work it out. Please help.
I've only just started using visual basic, but i am starting to get the gist of it.

Visual Basic Editor - Creating Macro Prompts

Apr 26, 2007

I have created macros before, but it was a step by step, easy to follow, guide from out textbook. Now I have to create one on my own from these directions.

So my first task was to create a macro that went to a specific worksheet, and made A1 the active cell. I created that macro.

Now it comes to where I have to open the macro in Visual Basic Editor and I am completely lost. I know absolutely nothing about this. This is what it looks like now:

Sub Show_Report()
'
' Show_Report Macro
' Macro recorded 4/25/2007 by *******
'
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+w
'
Sheets("Jeff").Select
Range("A1").Select
End Sub

So now these are the next directions. "Edit the Show_Report macro in the VBE so that the macro prompts the user for the name of the report to view (indicating that the user should enter "Jeff", "Sally", "Jane", "Jim", and "Harry") and then displays that worksheet. (HINT: You should run the edited macro to make sure that it runs correctly.) Include an If-Then-Else control structure to detect an error if the user enters an incorrect report name. If an error occurs, the macro should display a message box informing the user of the error.

So what Im thinking is I need a code so what when I hit my macro hotkey, it opens up a pop-up box and then I get to type in a worksheet name and it takes me to that worksheet.

Visual Basic: Select The Column (cell) Left To The One That's Currently Selected.

May 2, 2008

I'm trying to get a code that will do the following: I've got a list of stocks followed by extra information in de columns to the right of it. If, based on that extra information you'd like to know more about the stock, I'd like the user to just select the cell that holds the name, and click a button.

What this button should do is the problem for me right now: it needs to select the cell left to the one selected holding the name of the stock.
The cell to the left holds the code that is used to lookup information in Bloomberg. This cell is invisible to the user since I hide it to make the tool look good. How do I write a piece of code to select for instance: B10-1=A10. The rest is just a recording job.
Also, I know you can add text to the text in a cell, however in this case I want to cut some text. Is the any way to get: "B10-1"-"equity sedol1", leaving me with the text in A10 minus equity sedol1?

Excel 2010 :: Checking If (Trust Access To Visual Basic Project) Ticked

I have a macro that seems to work okay for older versions of Excel - I use Office XP (2002) tell me if this will work for newer versions (2007 / 2010)?

On Error Resume Next
VBATrusted = (Application.VBE.VBProjects.Count) > 0
Exit Function
End Function
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
If Not VBATrustedAccess() Then

[code]....

I was thinking that i should probably have

VBATrusted = -1

as the third line so that it is negative unless the tick is there. No way of checking older versions right now though.
