Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.

All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.

I've been searching all morning through various posts on this subject, but I can't find anything that I can adapt to my needs. Here is the code I have:

ChDir "C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktop"
ActiveWorkbook. SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktopBook1.txt", FileFormat:=xlText, _
CreateBackup:=False

This file will be used accross multiple computers and therefore the directory will always change.

I also want the file name to refer to a cells value, as I will be having the user define the name through a userform.

Close File Without "Save Changes" Dialog Box?

Aug 31, 2009

I have a summary file (I'll call it File A) from which a macro is run. It opens other files, finds a "total line" then copies it into File A. Then it closes that file, opens another, and repeats the process. The macro works fine for most of the files it opens and closes, but on some of them, upon the close command, a dialog box pops up asking "Do you want to save the changes you made to "File B.xls"?

I'm not sure why this comes up as there were no changes made. Cells were only copied and pasted into another file. Is there a way to stop this annoying box from popping up? It slows down the macro by waiting for human input. here is my

Macro To Bring Up Save As Dialog Box

Feb 20, 2007

I am modifying a corporate macro that is used in to create a standard technical letter. This standard file has 6 macros, that once used to create the letter, are never used again. I know, the first thing that jumps out is to create an add-in. I'd prefer not to got hat route at the moment for various reasons.

What I'm looking to do is after the letter is created, and the print macro is called and prints the letter, all macros are removed (already found help for this on this site), then check to see if the file has been saved, or still has the template name, and then either save or bring up the save as dialog box for the user to save the file with the appropriate name and folder.

Suppress Save Dialog On Before Close Event

Jan 5, 2014

I have a command button code on a sheet that checks if all the cells in a table have been completed before saving the worksheet. If they're not all complete a userform message box pops up with a reminder then returns to the sheet without saving. I want to be able to call this from the 'BeforeClose' event as well however, even though it still does what it's supposed to do, after the userform message box has displayed and been unloaded then it still pops up the Save Dialog box.

I'm struggling to suppress the Save Dialog box and return to the sheet.

Force Save As Type To Xls?

I've looked through the threads and have seen some Save As posts, but nothing that seems to fit my task. All I want to do is force the Save As file type to .xls (for some reason on our network, xlsm causes save errors... After looking through various posts, I found this:

Excel 2007 :: Force File To Be XLSM File Type

I have a macro-enabled template file in Excel 2007. I would like the user to be unable to save in any format other than macro-enabled. They should be free to choose a path and filename, but not the file type.

How To Display A Gif File In A Dialog Box Using An Image Control

Jan 11, 2010

my code brings up an empty dialog box.

The file I am trying to view is saved as follows: C: Test.gif

What I have done.Added a image control to a dialog box, called image1
Added the following event handler to image1:
x = c: test.gif
Image1.picture = loadpicture (X)Pressed F5 to test the code and brings up a dialog box with a blank image box.

Not called the userform in the main module (didn't seem much point considering the test failed)

My questions

where I am going wrong with this, the correct code?

Also in inputting the address of the file I could not use the C: format as this brought up an error. What is the correct format?

Then I need to enter a default filename like (C:Temp) and click "Save" again. When this is working, I will hide Internet Explorer to make the operation completely transparent to the user. The URL is a sample chosen specifically for this test case.

Adding A File Path From A Dialog Box Selection

I am trying to white a macro that takes a file path from a cell value and opens that file. When there is no file path in the cell, it prompts a dialog box. This part is pretty much working. However, I would like the file path selected from the dialog box to be added to the cell in the original workbook.

Sub Reports()
Dim path1 As String
path1 = Range("B20").Value
On Error Resume Next
'checks if there is already a file path'
Workbooks.Open filename:= _
path1, Updatelinks:=1
'if no file path then opens dialog box'
If Error.Number <> 0 Then
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show Arg1:="*.*"

End If
End Sub
