Run Macro In Closed File At Same Time Each Day

Oct 17, 2007

i know there is information on this ontime method, i haev read through it, but since i am working with reuters running live in the background they just dont work.
Anyway, on a normal excel sheet, I have made the automated macros run on a timer, which is great. BUT If someone switches off my pc, its not going to be so great because i dont think the macro would run without excel being open.

QUESTION:
How can i make my macro run every morning at 8am? Assuming the worksheet is closed, even excel is closed. i am sure the answer is starring me in the face, i am just getting boerd of looking at it! in the Thisworkbook:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Application.OnTime dTime, "thismodule", , False
End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("20:00:00"), "thismodule"
End Sub

and in the Module:

Sub thismodule()
dTime = Now + TimeValue("08:00:00")
Application.OnTime dTime, "thismodule"

BeforeClose Event Not Running / Working When File Is Closed Through VBA In Another File

Jun 26, 2014

I have a code in file A that opens several files (B,C,D&E), copies some data from them, then closes the files. That part of the code works fine, but each of the files that are opened (B,C,D,&E) have a Workbook Open event that causes the file to save automatically every 30 seconds. (I know this is not recommended, but this is what the user wants.) The files also have a Workbook Before Close event that is supposed to stop the timer so the file will close without reopening. These each run fine on their own.But if I run code A, the workbook Before Close event in file B (C,D, & E) does not seem to run and the files reopen after 30 seconds to save. When I step through the code it works fine and goes through the Before Close event in each file and the files remain closed.

Macro, Export To Text File, One Row At A Time

Apr 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that currently looks like ........

My problem is that I want the macro to create either (a) a seperate text file for each line (1 for line 2, one for line 3 etc etc) or even better (b) create a file for the specific line i am on. For example if i happended to click on D5 and then pressed the macro key it would onyl create a txt file for line 5, same if i clicked on E6, it would only create a file for line 6.

I would be grateful if you could highlight the code you insert into my macro as it may be useful for other reports i run.

Sumif For Values From Closed File

Apr 13, 2009

I am trying to summarise data from 50 different files (updated by 50 different users) into one file in one place. To do this I created a simple sumif function that links to those files. This sumif works correctly when those files are open. But when I open my output file after changes have been made to one or more of 50 input files, sumif function doesn't work when I hit update at the file opening pop up question and get #value error. If I start opening those files this error goes away and it works great again.

Pull In Range From Closed File

Feb 14, 2008

I'm trying to find a way to import data from an external excel file that the end-user will ultimately end up choosing using the application. getopenfilename dialogue. I'm able to sucessfully open the file, but what I'm really trying to do is import data from one specific column within the file, preferably without the source spreadsheet popping up.

So, is this possible to do with VBA? Also, will I run into any issues if I try to import from an Excel 2.1 file to an Excel 2003 file using VBA? Finally, I need to be able to import one file, and then be able to add to that an import from another file. I'm thinking that this could be accomplished using a variant variable, but is there already a function within Excel so that I won't have to create my own add-to function.

Linked File Is Closed Before It Finishes Recalculation

Apr 27, 2007

I have a workbook with a button to get updated data. The button simply opens the other workbook and then closes it. THe problem is it opens the book and then closes it before the opened book has a chance to finish it calculation resulting in lots of #value errors. The book that is being opened works fine but because it is shared it can't be left open and needs to be closed asap, though it should be allowed to finsih calcs before it gets closed again. If anyone know a way to make the following temporarily halt until the opened book finishes calculating before it closes it.

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"X:gas daily pricingGD pricing weather call active summer.xls", ReadOnly:=True
ThisWorkbook. Saved = True
ActiveWindow.Close False

Lookup Referencing Closed File Returns Value Error

Aug 13, 2008

I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.

Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:

=VLOOKUP(A38,'[June Scorecard confirmation.xls]VPSC Summary'!$C$10:$F$22,4,FALSE)

The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.

Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.

Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.

File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

Feb 10, 2014

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Pull Data Out Of A Closed File Based On A Date Range

I am trying to make Excel pull data out of a closed file based on a date range. The closed file is a log where people input data and enter the day they are doing it. I need to pull this data in my file and make it print into my worksheets so I can pass a report on to others with only the data they request from the log.

The range would be for 7 days and would have to be able to choose a few columns off this report.

Cell Value Of Closed Workbook With Concatenated File Path In Cells

Sep 24, 2007

I have a report that is collated from several other workbooks. The source workbooks follow the same naming convention throughout the year and so I have managed to concatenate the file path to bring through the text of the filepath and cell reference however cannot work out how to get the value of the cell. For example, I have the file path in A1, file name in B1 and sheet and cell referernce in C1.

I am using {=(A1&B1&C1)} which gives me R:CONFIDENTIALREPORT FOLDER[REPORT 24.09.07.xls]Sheet1!$D$1. To make matters slightly more difficult, the source reports would be closed. Is there an easy way or am I going to have to do this in VBA.

Suppress Open File Prompt When Copying Over Formula Referencing Closed Workbooks?

Dec 13, 2013

I have an Excel file that contains formulas that reference external workbooks on a shared network. Each month, I copy the column of formulas over to the next month's column. Then, to update the file path, I highlight the new column and do a Find-and-Replace, swapping the previous month's name for the current month. This practice works fine. The only thing is ... the "Open File" promptbox appears for each formula where I updated the file path (i.e. and this can be hundreds instances!). I wind-up having to choose the file from the exact same file path. It is an unnecessary, and annoying extra step to take.

Saving Multiple Workbooks At One Time/file As A Text File

Mar 16, 2007

found the following code which works for 1 workbook at a time. I am trying to save 7 workbooks at 1 time. Is it possible?

Sub SaveAsCell()
Dim strName As String

On Error Goto InvalidName
strName = Sheet1. Range("V77")
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs strName

It will work on the first sheet but none after that. I need to have each workbook saved with the value in cell V77. Also if that is possible, is it possible to change where the file is saved as well?

Right now I have a master workbook that will open the 7 other workbooks, paste data onto several pages in each workbook. I would like the macro to save the workbooks. The workbooks are named: 02 Tuesday, 03 Wednesday, 04 Thursday, 05 Friday, 06 Saturday, 07 Sunday, 08 Monday.

Macro For Pulling Data From Closed Workbook?

Jul 24, 2014

I'm having concerning pulling data from a closed workbook by using a macro. I have tried Google to resolve the issue, but am only getting very basic results which do not apply to the situation I have (or, rather, I perhaps don't know how to edit this code in order to work in the way which I would like it to).

The above image is the main workbook, which I would like to insert the macro into. In cell A1 you can see that there is a filename location - this is the location of the closed secondary workbook which I would like to pull the data from. I would like the macro to take the location which is present in cell A1, copy cells A1:J5000 in the closed workbook, and then paste these into this workbook starting in A7 (i.e. A7:J5007). The reason that the filename location is present in A1 is due to the fact that this will be changing; however I would like the macro always to take the location which is shown in A1 (e.g. if A1 were to change from '... est00218_data.csv' to '... est00001_data.csv' then I would like the macro to take the data from the new location, test00001).

VBA Macro To Pull Data From 3 Closed Workbooks And Filter

Dec 13, 2013

What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).

I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D

Macro To Copy Over And Paste Data In To A Work Sheet From A Closed Workbook

Nov 23, 2009

I have a macro code which gets the file list from a folder i specify and puts it in to an excel sheet as a column. I have then made a drop down list from this so the user can select the file they want.

From this file i wish to copy the data on a sheet that i specify. For example the sheet "dump" from file FR7_19.11.2009.xls (which will be a closed workbook) and paste its content in to the sheet "dump" in Summary.xls

I have a macro which opens up the closed workbook FR7_19.11.2009.xls and copies the sheet "dump" and then creates a new sheet of the same name and content in my current workbook (Summary.xls). However when i wish to select a different file to load in to Summary.xls "dump" the formulas i have been calculating information from this sheet all come up with #!Ref errors. I know this is because the macro i use deletes the old dump sheet before re adding a new one containing new data.

I am therefore looking for a macro which will simply just copy and paste the data from any file i select in to a sheet named "dump" as the data is always set out the same in every file but the values are different. I assume this will then mean that any formulas i use relating to this "dump" sheet in Summary.xls will work because the sheet is no longer being deleted and re-added the data within it has just simply been copied over.

Export Data From A Template File To Total List File Using Macro In Template File

Dec 18, 2012

I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):

Macro 1: clears order
Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.

It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.

I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.

Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons.
Row 11 includes the heading for order data.

For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.

The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)

File and Folder info:

To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later):
Template file name: template_order.xlsm
Template file location: \servershared emplate

Total list file name: total_list.xlsx
Total list file location: \servershared otal

Selection info:

The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10
The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11
The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty).
(If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).

When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.

Run-time Error Every Other Time The Macro Runs
