Excel Files Opening As Different/new File

Jan 12, 2010

I'm using Excel 2007. I didn't change a single option but for some reason this problem came up. When I open an already saved Excel file it opens up in a newly created file. For example, if I open a file saved as "Monthly Sales" it will open it up and rename it as "Monthly Sales1." When I go to save it again, which would normally just save it where it currently sits, it basically acts as if I hit Save As and pops up the box asking me where I want to save it. This is extremely annoying as most of the places where these files are saved are several folders deep which makes it time consuming every time I open and alter a file. I can't find any options that looks something like this and it only happens in Excel.

Macro To Close One Excel File And Open Another?

Jul 18, 2014

I have created several excel files as I cannot open them all at once since they are too large. So I have to open one excel file whilst closing another.

part1
part2
part3
part4
part5

I want a macro that opens the excel file part 1 and part 2. Then it should close part 1 and after closing part 1 it should open part 3. Once part 3 is open, part 2 should be closed and when part 2 is closed part 4 should open. When part 4 is open, then part 3 should be closed and part 5 should open.

Excel 2007 :: Add-in Not Loading When Opening File

Jun 10, 2013

I have an excel add-in which is a ribbon which houses a great deal of financial tools that I use on a regular basis so I don't have to hunt around excel for things I use regularly. The add-in has always loaded automatically whenever I opened excel - whether I opened excel by creating a new blank document or by double clicking a previously existing file.

Starting a few days ago though, the add-in only opens when opening excel by creating a new blank file. I can't think of anything that changed recently. Using Excel 2007.

Even when opening a file by double clicking, Excel still says the add-in is active (in excel options).

Default Excel File Type When Opening?

Mar 21, 2014

is it possible to change the settings on your computer so that when you open Excel, it opens it as a certain type of file? I like working with .xlsb because I work with large sets of data all of the time and find that they open faster and are faster to work with. Currently every time I open Excel, it opens as .xlsx.

How To Close Text File That Was Opened By DLL Called By Excel

Mar 11, 2014

I call it from a macro. It is supposed to write some temporary files, and close them in the end, and delete them. Sometimes, the dll can't close properly, and the text files remain open.

With error treatment in my macro, I can continue execution, but i need to delete that files.

Since the dll DOES NOT CLOSE the files, i'm not able to delete them in my macro.

I need some way to close that files, in order to delete them.

When I use GetFile to reference the file, it remains as "File", which does not accept "Close" method. I can reference the file with myfile.OpenAsTextStream, but this way it seems to me that the file is opened again, and the "Close" method does not work either, with the file defined as a TextStream object.

If I close excel, I'm able to delete those files, but that's not the way I want. Since IT'S OPEN IN EXCEL PROCESS, I imagine there's some way to close it.

some VBA like:


Open.file strPath & nextfile

What should the line be? or is it more complex than a single line ?

Excel 2007 :: Using Parameters While Opening Workbook To Get File To Autoload

Oct 5, 2012

I need to combine AHK and Excel, and in this I came up with the solution to save my parameters in a file, and let the workbook autoload it when I open the workbook. To do this I need to pass a command line parameter, or working directory to the workbook, as I will be using many different work directories for this to make sense.

This is only a matter of how to execute my workbook so that the path is included (and usable) to the working directory

I have tried

..workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"

But it results in a "grey" version of Excel aka. Excel is open, but no workbooks are.

I have also tried

excel.exe workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"

But this did not work either, and is not an option as we use both 2007 and 2010 at my workplace where this is intended to be used.

I can do it very easily by using absolute paths in the Excel auto-load, but as I have explained already this is just not an option.

Workbook Won't Close Correctly And Keeps Re-opening On The Refresh Event

Jun 6, 2006

I'm trying to combine 2 sets of code that I have searched other threads for.Both use the OnTime code to trigger events after 5 and 10sec.
My problem is that the workbook won't close correctly and keeps re-opening on the refresh event. I understand both events need to be passed to the dTime variable, but I am obviously doing something wrong. I will include the code as I'm sure its something obvious;



Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
On Error Resume Next
Application.OnTime dTime, "Sort", , False
If Cancel = False Then Application.OnTime dTime, "RefreshIt", , False
On Error Goto 0
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Run "RefreshIt"
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:10:00"), "Sort"
End Sub






Public dTime As Date
Sub Sort()
dTime = Time + TimeValue("00:00:10")
Application.OnTime dTime, "Sort"
Range("A6:M10").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("I6"), Order1:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
DataOption1:=xlSortNormal
Range("B2").Select
End Sub

Sub RefreshIt()
Sheets("Text").Range("A7:F38").QueryTable.Refresh
dTime = Time + TimeValue("00:00:05")
Application.OnTime dTime, "RefreshIt"
End Sub




Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

Compile Error On Close Of Excel 2003 But Not On Close Of Workbook

Mar 22, 2012

I am using Excel 2003.

It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.

These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.

These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.

Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.

Opening A File Without Opening A Workbook

Apr 17, 2007

I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.

This is the path:
[url]

So the command is this:
Workbooks.Open [url]

Links are not actual links

So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.

Summing Appropriate Cells If Last Entry Of A Unique Id Is Encountered?

Jul 1, 2014

ID = 1: The B Number is the same for entries of ID =1. Thus where ID = 1 and Last is indicated, Cost = 10.

ID = 2: The B Number changes four times. In cell G20 (Last of all ID =2) Cost = 20+30+40+30 = 120. You are basically summing at each instance the B Number changes.

ID = 3: Cell G24 = 100 +30 (two instances of B Number changing)

ID = 4: B Number is always the same. Cost = 50

ID = 5: B number changes 3 times, Cost = 50+120+140 = 310

In essence, the idea is that if the ID matches for all rows of particular client, the total cost = individual cost. However, if the ID changes multiple times for a single client, the total cost becomes the sum of changed costs, but not the entire column, just summing at each instance it changes. And this summed cost must be entered whenever we see the last instance of a unique ID (This is indicated using Column F).

The problem that I'm running into is that currently I am doing this manually with my actual data set (has nearly 200,000 rows). What excel function or VBA code could I write to automate this entire process?

Opening A File ...

Sep 18, 2008

I am trying to do something simple but not quite sure how to do it. I am using the GetImportFileName and then selecting information of one sheet from that file and copying to another workbook. I need to know how to then get back to the file I have opened to search the next sheet and so on. The problem I have is with this line.

Workbooks(FileName).Activate

Sub GetImportFileName()
Dim Finfo As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant

' Set up list of file filters
Finfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"

' Display *.* by default
FilterIndex = 5

' Set the dialog box caption
Title = "Select a file to Import"

' Get the Filename
FileName = Application.GetOpenFilename(Finfo, FilterIndex, Title)

' Open the Filename
Workbooks.Open FileName

End Sub

Opening File With Dated Name Each Day?

Oct 20, 2009

I would like to open a certain file everyday. However each day this file is created and named with the date, for example Production_FixYYYYMMDD.csv, in VBA how do I accomplish this? The alternative I could think of is to create a .bat file to copy that file over to a separate directory and rename it Production_Fix.csv and just use that, but if that batch file fails to run that would cause issues.
