If I want to perform this process without having to change the directory to the t drive etc, how do I change the macro? Is there a way, that as long as each of the relevant sheets are in the same directory, i can point the macro there? Ie, as long as all saved together in My Documents or Desktop, the macro automatically looks there?
I have a file which I am using at work to compile production shift reports. I have created a sheet called Live Report and created a macro called 'New Day' that copies the entire sheet and renames it as yesterdays date (using a separate sheet called Data with a =today()-1 and text formulas thus the sheet tab for 14/2/07 is called 14 Feb) it then clears certain cells on the Live Report sheet so that information can be entered again.
My problem is that I want to now create a table of values that compiles values from each sheet for the month. What I wanted to do was have the names of all possible sheet tabs listed in column A and then as we get to each date the links will become active for the 20 or so values on each sheet. So each row will have the sheet tab name in column A and then columns B to R will have links to that sheet. As I am lazy and the linked values will always be in the same location I just wanted to drag the first row of links down the table using the value in Column A as part of the filepath/link.
My problem is no matter how much I try I can't use cell values in filepaths. If this is impossible I would like help with a macro that can find the right row in the table based on todays date and copy certain information.
I'm working on a sheet which references a sheet in another workbook. I want to refer to the other workbook simply by it's filename (Forecast.xls) but whenever I save and reopen Excel has replaced the filename with the full path (C:Documents and SettingskoconnorMy DocumentsAuto-sheet project[Forecast.xls])
This is quite inconvinient as I am eventually going to want to move both workbooks together to a different location. Is there a way to make Excel stop working out full file paths and just look for the filename in whichever folder the active sheet is sitting in?
We have multiple macros that have been developed by various users in the company. Many of these macros have file paths hard coded into the macro to reference file locations with networked drives.
We are planning on making some changes to the network file structure which will break these macros. I realize we will have to go in and manually change all these. I want to ensure that the end users have the flexibility they want, but not have to touch each macro if/when folder structures change, or files migrate to SharePoint etc.
programPath = "C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe" ' works 'programPath = "iexplore.exe" ' does not work Shell programPath + " " + fileToLaunch, vbNormalFocus
but the drawback is that the invoked program (iexplore.exe, at least in my case) needs to have the FULL PATH to where the program exists = the "C:Program FilesInternet Explorer" which may or may not work on someone elses computer. This hardcoding will not work and is not transportable.
Is there a trick to find where the executing program lives? or launching it without the path?
Split off from Fill Multi Select ListBox With File Paths & Open Selected Files
if I can add a other request I just thought of.
If a sheet is also in one of the workbooks list, can I add a link directly to it? For example, Workbook1 has a sheet named "MARCH".
When i'm working on sheet "MARCH" I want to be able to click on a button to see the Userform I created from the script above and see if the sheet "MARCH" is present from the other workbooks listed, if there is a sheet "MARCH" in the workbooks listed, I want another listbox to show what files contain sheet "MARCH" and link to them.
i'm having a problem with a script I have (script is below). What i'm doing is running a script that displays files in a certain folder, those files are then displayed on sheet1 column O and are linked so when they are clicked upon, the file will open. I also have a combo box with a input range of $O$O. That puts the values in column O in the combo box. Now here is a problem and request.
Problem first, when I select the file names from the combo box, they don't open the file, all it does is display the file name in combo box and that's it. how to I get it to open up the file? Now for a request, I have another sheet that is almost exactly as the one i described above. The only thing different I want is when someone clicks on a file name from the combo box, instead of it automatically linking to the file, I want them to click on a button to display the file.

I was wondering if there is a way to write a macro that will take an excel file that I have called Alldata and then have it copy the first two sheets to a new workbook named something else( FullSparameter_0) and then copy the name of the third and fourth sheet into the new FullSparameter_0 workbook and then copy column A-E from sheet dB Alldata.xls and paste it into the FullSparameter_0.xls workbook in the same dB sheet in the same spot. And do the same thing with the Phase Sheet. i know this sounds confusing, but im really new to the VBA stuff.
I just need 15 different files from the original Alldata.xls that will be named FullSparameter_0, FullSparameter_1, .., FullSparameter_14. but each file will have the same two first sheets, Setup Information and Cal Verification, and the same last two sheet names, dB and Phase, but then in the dB and phase sheets, it will copy over the next four columns of data. so in FullSparameter_0 it will have column A-E from sheet dB in Alldata.xls in the dB sheet in FullSparameter_0 (Same with the Phase Sheets). Then in FullSparameter_1 it will have column A and Columns F,G,H and I (for dB and Phase). In fullSparameter_2 it will have column A and then J,K,L and M. Each FullSparameter_X will have the exact same first two sheets and then the other columns for the last two sheets will be pasted into columns A-E in dB and Phase.
I have a template file that I import data in to, which is then saved with the current date. This works, but I want to automate the import of the data, but ensure I don't duplicate the load. Therefore, I have a tab 'FileLog' that I record the filename (variable by date) in column A and Creation timestamp in column B.
How do I obtain the filename and creation timestamp of the import data so that they can be entered?
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.
I have a file that I save with a new version number each time I make major changes. The file name currently is: "Telephony Equipment Inventory v26 (Summary).xlsm". The "26" is the variable number. give me the vba code to ensure I open the file with the highest version number?
I have a csv file named "BB31_2013-08-01". I would like to open this file via vba and this is not my only file. I also have another similar fileames such as "BB31_2013-08-08", therefore, I try to create some function like yyyy, mm & dd where I can modifie it easily for next file.
I'm attempting to copy some files into an archive folder in the same main folder. These files appear weekly in a folder that contains numerous other files.
Each of these files has a filename such as:
with time being the time that the report was run.
Every week the filename stays the same but the time and date changes. I was hoping to be able to simply use the "Filecopy" command and specify the source file with a "*" after the main file name. However this does not seem to work.
Is there a simple way to do this? (I dont want more than a few lines of coding really as I will be duplicating it for each file and then changing the file name as needed.
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 have a file (I'll call it 'Template' where I am extracting data into a new workbook. I refer back to my Template in my code, but I have now come across an issue. I will save the template using different country names, for example, if I am populating it with UK data, I will call it 'Template - UK'. In my code, how do I pass the name of this file to a dimmed value. So If i have the template - Uk open, can I pass the filename onto a dimmed value? So instead of having
Windows("template - UK").Activate
I want to have something along the lines of (although I tried this way but it didn't work):
Dim template As String template = Application. ActiveWorkbook Windows(template).Activate
I want to create a macro that when executed changes the name of "File1" to "File1 - Edited 8-9-2012". With the date being today's date (variable). This file is going to be emailed to someone who will then execute this macro.
Is there a way to prompt the Save As window with the updated file name so the user can save the file where ever he/she wants?
I have a file that I want to name based on content in certain cells. I.e. "Q-(text from cell G1)-(text from cell B7)-Date(mm_dd_yy)". I want to be able to specify the location where I save this file each time I try to save it, but I want it to update the file's name if any of the parameters have changed.
I have some code generated that does just about everything right except that it automatically saves a version of the file in the folder where the original is located even though it also brings up the dialog box and allows me to save it in another location.
Basically, I want to fix the code below so that it doesn't save what appears to be a backup file each time. Should I be using some sort of savecopyas?
Code: Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean) 'Add the quote # to the header ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightHeader = "Quote No. " & Range("G1").Value
I am trying to set a file name as a string to use it as an attachment. The user inputs a number into a textbox. That number is used to locate the file in location. But the file name is different with each file. So im trying to do something like
Whereas the actual file name is "C:DesktopMCJC RFI 1 MISSING ROOM NUMBERS.docx"
The location "C:Desktop" will always remain the same as will ".docx". I have everything else working just fine.
I would like to create a macro to open a file in Excel 2007. My problem is that the filename changes often. After updates are made the filename is changed and the old file is moved to a backup folder. So, there is only one similar file in the folder
My filename is "RFQ Worksheet 7 29 2008.xlsx". The path is "C:Documents and SettingsahaynijDesktop".
I have a Workbook "forecast.xlsx" and several Workbooks which have a individual Number in the Filename (E.g. "3960........xls", "3961.......xls etc.) in the same directory as "forecast.xlsx" + projects"
Now, I would like to browse through "forecast.xlsx" in column H, searching for hyperlinks. In Column H are these Projectnumbers located which are used in the filenames above. Whenever the Cell cointains a hyperlink, following should happen (that far i managed it by myself):
- Store the Cellvalue in a String Variable - Go to the Directory this.workbook + projects - browse this folder, searching for a File which contains the stored string in its filename - open the file - copy a range - close file - This.workbook.Activate - follow the Hyperlink which has been stored as String before - paste selection - continue browsing through column H, looking for the next hyperlink.
I have a VBA which runs bugless, but it copies the wrong range, but to the correct destination.
See the code below:
Sub RESLT_INPUT_ALL() Dim cell As Object For Counter = 1 To 1000 Set cell = Worksheets("Projects overview").Cells(Counter, 8) If cell.Hyperlinks.Count > 0 Then
Am working on a procedure to open all files in a folder and copy some data from the files into another workbook (master). I have this piece of the code. However, I also need to get the filename (from which data was copied) and paste this into an adjacent cell in the master (so I know which file each data point came from).
This link worked perfect for my needs: Create a List of Hyperlinked Files: But is there any easy way to only show the filename insted of the full path for the name of the hyperlink? Now it shows it like :C:MyDocumentsTestings est1.xls I only want it to show as: test1. I still want the hyperlink to work
