I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.
1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.
2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it
3. Open the file in the associated application
4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file
5. Repeat steps 2-4
DoIt = 1 While DoIt = 1 Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1 Print #1, Files In Folder Close #1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2 while not eof(2) Line input #2, MyFile Display MyFile on screen Wait for 30 seconds Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it wend Close #2
I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems
I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.
with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.
I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.
I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.
I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?
I have created a Spreadsheet that does all of the calculations, analysis, graphs, etc. that i need; however every time I wish to use this spreadsheet I need to first open up a spreadsheet with data, copy it and then paste it into the original spreadsheet. While this is not horrible, it is quite tedious to do several thousand times.
Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to create a Macro that would open up all files in a specific folder, then select each one and paste the relevant data into my original spreadsheet. I know this possible for specific files; for example, I have created a Macro that will select files data.xls, dats1.xls, data2.xls, and paste these into the spreadsheet, but I was wondering if there was a way to generalize this so that it will simply open every file regardless of the name or how many files there are in the specific folder.
Using the record macro function I have created the code below which creates a row of means for 77 columns in the active worksheet, and also adds the value from cell CO2 to cell CO5. I would like to expand this code so it copies the row of means (always row 5) into the next blank row in the workbook C:/ Analysis/results.xls.
Sub Macro7() Range("A6").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _ "=((R[-4]C*R2C92)+(R[-3]C*R3C92)+(R[-2]C*R4C92)+(R[-1]C*R5C92))/(R2C92+R3C92+R4C92+R5C92)" Range("A6").Select Selection.Copy Range("B6:CM6").Select ActiveSheet.Paste ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 2 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 3 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 4 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 5 'etc. up to ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 77 Range("CO6").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-4]C" Range("CO7").Select End Sub
I have 102 dbf tables located in the folder C:/Analysis that I would like to perform these operations on. Can this code be expanded so it will run automatically on every table in the folder?
I am trying to append 365 text files into a single Excel sheet. The files have unique names corresponding to the day of data that they represent (i.e. 0101.txt, 0102.txt, 0103.txt etc.) I am looking for some code that will loop through a folder, open each file, copy all data, and append it without the headers into the single Excel sheet. Does anyone have some VBA code that would do this?
I don't seem to be able to combine the looping through a set of workbooks with the IsFileOpen function posted by microsoft.
Basically this code works if the foundfile(j) is closed, but if it is already open I cannot activate the foundfile(j) and make it do things.
I'm not posting the ISFileOpen function because already present inside the forum and the rest of the code because it's too long...
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch ' . ScreenUpdating = False .LookIn = MyPath(40) '* represents wildcard characters .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbook exists For j = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count If IsFileOpen((.FoundFiles(j))) Then 'neither of these three options work
I have around 30 files each quarter which I need to convert from a text file to an excel spreadsheet. I am a beginner with VBA and am looking for generic code I can use for a macro to:
1. open a text file from a folder 2. delimited/tab/comma 3. format columns H, O, and AH into dates 4. 'leave a spot for me to insert my code to manipulate the data' 5. save the file as an excel spreadsheet to a folder with the same filename 6. loop to perform this task to all files in a folder and stop after the last file.
The dilemna I am having is that my text files do not have a suffix ".txt" after them.
They just have the file name ***MMDDYYYY. There are always 3 initials at the beginning which change for each file i.e. ABC06302009.
The date remains the same for the given quarter, i.e. ***06302009. Next quarter I will have to do this same thing for all files ***09302009.
I’m wondering if this is possible, if I have a folder with say 30 excel spreadsheets (.xls) all named differently (number of files will always change), can I easily write something in VBA to Open all the spreadsheets and copy each sheet over to an existing Excel spreadsheet? For example, have a ‘template’ spreadsheet where the VBA would exist, then have the first sheet, (Sheet1) of each 30 sheets be copied back over to the template.xls? Even better, could I rename each Sheet1 to the name of the file before copying it over? This would basically be the first step in my process of getting the spreadsheet made.
I found this code in a similar question, so how can I rename the Sheet to the opened file name, then copy that over to template.xls?
I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.
There is a folder with all excel files with the same structure. I need a macro, who opens one file by one in a folder, change the layout, and save it too same place with same name. Changing the layout will I do with macro record.
Sub AllFiles() Dim MyFolder As String 'Path containing the files for looping Dim MyFile As String 'Filename obtained by Dir function Dim MyBook As Workbook MyFolder = "D:LABODIESTSOST_DIEST" 'Assign directory to MyFolder variable
I have a number of spreadsheets in a folder called country (each sheet is the name of a region). These sheets are linked to another sheet called master which is in another folder.
The regional sheets all have a list of wrap codes and pull details specific to each code from the master sheet. All wrap codes for all sheets are stored in the master, details for wrpas are manually entered here as well as any other associated information.
The link is kept by way of an index match formula used to populate information from the master for all wrap codes in the regional sheet.
Each of the regional sheets act as a report for a specific region and the master is the main source. Every week we need to open the regional sheets (some reside in different folders/subfolders) update the index match formulas in the sheet so that the data is refreshed and then save as a new file with data as values to another folder for reporting.
I am looking for a code that can automatically update all of the excel sheets in a given folder and then save them to a new folder automatically.
I have very very limited knowledge of VB (did make a hello world dialog box once) and am stuck as to any way to automate this process.
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I found the following code to execute a macro in all excel files in a folder. Sounds amazing! I have a code to add to it, however I am having issues getting it to work. take a look at it and let me know what (more like, how many things). I am adding this to the Sheet 1 Worksheet.
Here is a macro I have found and manipulated for my particular case. The problem is that I want to narrow the search criteria by just pdfs and only those starting with Segment which i know in coding would be something like "Segment" & "*" & ".pfd" or something to those terms but the code uses objects which I'm not too familiar with.
Code: Sub ListAllFile()
Dim objFSO As Object Dim objFolder As Object Dim objFile As Object Dim ws As Worksheet
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set ws = Sheets("Simple Cut Lists (2)")
I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.
I need a vba code to
- choose a folder instead of a file - find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d" - rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.
I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.
I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.
Is this possible with vba?

I am trying to process 60+ data files. I've recorded/written macros that do all of the processing, and now I would like to write a loop that will go through a folder with the data files (.txt, tab delimitted), and run the code on each file. I am using the Mac Version of Excel 2004. I have tried to adapt some code that I found in the forums, but after fixing a few errors, now nothing is happening when I run the code. The code is below. I have it in a module in the VBA editor.
length of the code; I'm assuming the problem is in the very beginning or end (the code I added for the loop), as the code in the middle that does the actual processing works.
Dim strDocPath As String Dim strCurrentFile As String
I need creating a macro that i can use in a file that will open all workbooks in a specified folder. Each .xls file has a macro that is slightly different and i want to go to one book and run one macro that will make all macros run.
The following code is something that was developed to find files with certain criteria that matches references in cells A1 & A2. The coding is as follows:
Code: Option Explicit Option Compare Text 'for Case-Sensitive matching change Text to Binary Sub List_Matches() Dim sPattern As String, sPath As String, sJob As String Dim sMainDir As String, sCommonSub As String Dim c As Range, lRow As Long
The red is the area of the code i am having problems with. The original code was going to look only in one directory, now I wanted to add a second directory with reference located in E5. Now as is the program works fine looking at directory 1 or E4, but the problem i feel is that for E5 all the folder name are named "WO#_____ - ______". I believe the # sign is not allowing it to open that folder and search for the info. In the code there is a function for solving the # sign problem in a file name, but how could i either modify the code or the function to do the same for the folder name and view the # sign as a valid file name to open?
