Pass Chosen File & Path To Variable

Dec 1, 2006

I am running a macro which ends up showing the save as dialog box. The name is correct (data) and the type is correct (XML files) but no matter what I try the file path is not right. Here is the section of

sDataFile = Application.GetSaveAsFilename("data.xml", fileFilter:="XML Files (*.xml), *.xml")

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set js = fs.CreateTextFile(sDataFile, True, False)
Set f = fs.GetFile(sDataFile)
sFilePath = f.parentfolder & ""
Set f = Nothing

How do I set the file path? I have already seen lots of answers to this but they are based on changing the path permanently or on there being no dialog box already open. I need total automation with the user not being able to see any of the save process.

I am looking for macro that when run, will open a file explorer window and prompt the user to select a folder and file where they have data stored. Then I need it to be stored as a variable and used as a part of a "Workbook.Open Filename" command.

The reason for this is that, I have a huge formatting marco stored within a workbook. When a user extracts a report from SAP, I want the workbook to grab the file that is extracted, open it and import all of the data in order to be formatted.

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only

Sep 27, 2006

I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...

I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...

How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...

An example of "DestFile" might be;
S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls
(the file name length may vary)
What code can I use to consistently trim it back to;
S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction
as the "DestFldr" variable?

Global Variable Or Pass Variable Between Sub-routines

Jan 26, 2007

The first goes through a directory and opens all the files.. after it opens a given file it goes off into a sub-routine to process the data in that file.

I am trying to create a counter in the first sub-routine and then pass that value into the second sub-routine to tell it to put the values out on the next row down.. so the first time through it puts the values out on row 1, next time it puts them out on row 2, etc.

Pass Variable From One Userform To Another?

Oct 20, 2005

I have code in a userform that shows another userform with a text box. When the user types text there and presses OK, I want that userform to close (which it does fine), and return back to the original userform (which it does fine), but I want the typed text to be stored in a variable that the code in the original userform can use.

I tried declaring a public variable, "Rresponse1", in each userform's procedure, but that doesn't work. I test for the content of the variable afterward in the original userform and it is empty.

In the original userform I have:

SaveList.Show '(this is the second userform)
MsgBox "This is response1: " & Response1 '(to test if the variable is being passed)

In the userform SaveList, in the Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() procedure, I have:

Response1 = SaveList.ListName.Text
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox Response1 '(to test the variable, here it shows the text fine)
Unload SaveList

How do I get the Response1 variable to keep its content when control is passed back to the original userform?

Pass Variable Between Modules

Dec 11, 2009

I created the following sub to signal when a macro in Module 1 is complete:

Public Sub Done()
Dim complete As Boolean
complete = True
End Sub
I placed this just before the end sub in the macro for which I am trying to detect that it has finished executing:

Call Done

End Sub
In the Sheet 1 Module, the code fails at the statement:

If complete = True Then
The error returned is "Variable not defined." All three subs are declared as Public. Why does the Sheet1 sub not recognize the variable "complete" from the Module 1 macro?

Pass A Variable To The Form Code

Jun 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with about 30 charts on it that I would like to attach a macro to which opens the chart in a form. I've figured out how to do this last part, but am stuck on how to pass a variable to the form code which tells excel which chart to copy. Essentially what I'm doing creating a macro for each chart which would run when that chart is clicked on. This macro is identical for each chart except for the name of the chart being passed.

Sub Chart1_click()
ShowChart "Chart 1"
End Sub

Sub ShowChart(c As String)
End Sub

In the UserForm_Initialize code located in the userform module, I'd like to call the code which saves and loads the image of the clicked on chart. But here's where I'm stuck. How do I pass c to the code in the form module...e.g, how to pass c to UserForm_Intialize and to ChartZoom? Here's what I have so far...

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize(c As String)
ChartZoom c
End Sub

Private Sub ChartZoom(c As String)


Dim Cht As Chart
Set Cht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(c).chart
Dim CName As String
CName = ThisWorkbook.Path & "cht.gif"
Cht.Export Filename:=CName, FilterName:="GIF"
imgCht.PictureSizeMode = fmPictureSizeModeZoom
imgCht.Picture = LoadPicture(CName)

Pass Cell Value Using Variable Row Number

Following statement works for me:

bdcTerm1 = ThisWorkbook. Sheets("ws2"). Range("A1").Value

But instead I want to parse through 50 rows and dynamically get the value instead of using a static Range("A1"). So I am trying to do the following:

For Row = 1 To bdc_rows
bdcTerm1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ws2").Cell(Row, 1).Value
bdcTerm2 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ws2").Cell(Row, 2).Value
Next Row

Pass Workbook Variable Between Subs

Jul 11, 2007

This is the code after editing to make it more clear

Public Sub 1()
BookA= activeworkbook. name
End Sub

Public Sub 2()

With BookB. sheets(1)
End Sub()

At the end of public sub 1, BookB is the active workbook. What I want to do in public sub 2 is to copy some data from BookA to BookB. Unfortunately, when moving from public sub 1 to public sub 2, BookA needs to be defined again. The code above is the code that I use in my add-ins. I figured out for non add-ins code I can define BookA with when BookB is active as I before work with BookA. This does not apply for add-ins as thisworkbook will refer to my add-ins code. Is there anyway of keeping definition of BookA is constant from one public sub to another public sub? This is simplified code. In fact, I can't merge public sub 2 with public sub 1 due to some reason which I don't say it here.

Pass Formula Result To Variable

Jul 26, 2007

I have come up with the following formula to pull sums of data by month. I am using this because it is inconvenient to use the DSUM formula (I can't put all the criteria together in a simple way):

{=SUM(IF('Sheet1'!$B$2:$B$20="Person1",IF( DATE(YEAR('Sheet1'!$A$2:$A$20),MONTH('Sheet1'!$A$2:$A$20)+1,)=C2,'Sheet1'!$D$2:$D$20,0),0))}

I would like to, in a macro, assign a variable to this result - but cannot figure out the VBA code for it.
