Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that it’s not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ‘Workbook_Open’ etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesn’t contain a macro to auto open and because csv’s usually don’t like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.

Open File Macro: Same Directory As Macro Workbook

Nov 17, 2006

I created folder on my desktop to hold various documents. I have master excel document which contains forms and command buttons that open documents from same folder. Is there a way to change code instead of having full file path to specify current directory. I'm worried that if I move this folder to another location then my open file button will not work since location is changed.

Also when I open with command button word document, I have a button on word document to close. I can close document but word application is still active. Can I close word application with the document at the sam time. This is the code I'm using: "ActiveWindow.Close"

Macro To Batch Copy And Save Worksheets With File Names Listed In Cells?

Oct 23, 2013

I have a workbook that contains worksheets. They are listed as follows:

Sheet 1ABCDEFG

In cells A1 - A49 I have text. What I would like to do is to have a macro that I can run that will basically copy and save new workbooks with sheets A - G copied over and have the new workbook saved with the file name that I have denoted in cells A1 - A49 on Sheet 1. Also, the macro would ask me where I want to save the new Workbooks.

For example, if this were Sheet 1, Column A then the cells below would be the saved name of the new workbooks and the new workbooks would have Sheets A - G in themRed

Blue

Purple

Black

White

Yellow

Orange

Green

Gray

Brown

One more piece of information, the file that is being copied and saved is large (~80MB). If there is a macro that would allow me to simply "save as' the workbook and the Saved Workbooks would be named using the data in Sheet 1, that would work as well in case copying, pasting, then saving may take more time

Excel 2010 :: Using Macro To Open Network File

Jan 5, 2014

I am an extreme novice to using macros.

I used the 'record macro' feature to create the following: I created a rectangle box on sheet1 of NEW TEST.xlsm to link to the macros incidated below. Niether macro moves on after reaching the Workbooks.Open statement.

I am at a loss. Is there something in Excel that needs to be set? Is there something else that I need to do version of Excel is 14.0.6129.5000 (32 bit) MS Office Professional Plus 2010

What I am trying to accomplish is this: From 'NEW TEST.xlsm', open an excel file on the network, add a new sheet to this network file, calling it 'Pivot'. Then create a pivot table in this new sheet from the data in sheet data1 of this same network file. Then move control of macro / processing back to the NEW TEST file. Eventually I will do more, but for starters, I cannot even get the macro to add / name a new sheet in the network file.

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]PS I have attached the NEW TEST.xlsm fikle as we as the data file. NOTE: the data file has been reduced to one day's worth of data, to to the upload file size.Also, my Excel Trustred locations has "Allow trusted locations on my network" checked, and the network location to the data file in trusted user locations.

VB:

Sub Open_Add_Sheet()
Dim filename, filelocation As String
Dim wb As Workbook
filename = "11 Nov, 2013 GDO AHS Agent Productivity Report.xls"
filelocation = "R:acharukAHS ReportsGDOGDO CSR ACTIVITY Report2013" & filename
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filelocation) '

Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html

Feb 16, 2010

I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:

- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)

- Copy paste as values

- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)

- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)

- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file

My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.

Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.

I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Open XLSM File Based On Latest Date Found In Filename

Feb 11, 2013

I'm on excel 2010 and I have a small group excel files I open everyday. Most of the files are static in name and location. I've got a macro created to open those files, which works fine with workbooks.open and the file path.

There are two report files I want to incorporate into my macro of workbooks to open. The files are created weekly and the files names have the following format: "Report Name (YYYY-MM-DD).xlsm". I don't want to use the file's last modified date because older files may get edited after the more recent ones are created. The files are also not always created on the same day, so the solution needs to be flexible enough to not refer to a specific day of the week or anything.

Macro open an excel file based on the latest date found in filename.

Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook

Oct 2, 2006

I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.

Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using

Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value

If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.

Excel 2013 :: File Size Grows When Using Macro To Copy / Paste To New Workbook

May 9, 2014

I'm using Excel 2013 on Windows 7.

I have an Excel file which has a macro that sucks in data from a number of separate files (two Excel, a varying number of csv). The macro grabs all the individual files and loads them into one of three worksheets with some formatting, sorting, and structuring on the way. All good so far.

I then need to take two of the worksheets and copy them to a new Workbook which I can send out to some users. So I use the Workbooks.Add method, and use the Selection.Copy on just the data (UsedRange.Rows/Columns.Count to ensure it is only the data) and Selection.PasteSpecial with the xlPasteColumnWidths, xlPasteValues, and xlPasteFormats options to copy the data over. None of the data is filtered. Just straight data.

I would expect the newly added workbook to be smaller than the one with the macros because the one with the macros has two extra sheets that I don't transfer, and the sheets I do transfer are identical.

And that's where it gets weird. The file with the macros and more data is 18.7Mb, but the new one with only two sheets is 24.8Mb. One is .xlsm and the other is .xlsx (because it has no macros).

I've tried opening the new workbook and saving as .xlsm (no material difference to the size) and as .xls (it got even bigger). I've opened the new workbook, gone to the end of the data and deleted all the blank rows and columns, but no effect (because the rows are already empty).

Why would the file with less in it be so much bigger (or bigger at all)?

VBA Shell Command On A .BAT (batch) File

Jul 13, 2009

I was trying to run the shell command in VBA (excel2007) on a .BAT(batch) file. While running the macro, the DOS command prompt appears and goes away in a flash but the function of the .bat is not performed which makes me think that the shell command isnt functioning properly. I had this proper earlier also with a few Exe's.

the line of the macro that calls is (c is the path for the batch file) :

Call Shell(c, vbNormalFocus)

Could any of you help me with some suggestions regarding this problem.

Just to confirm, the batch file on itself works absolutely fine and it looks like it doesnt take more than 2 seconds to run it. It also does not wait for any input from the macro. it is an individual batch just included in the macro.

Using Shell To Call Batch File Or CMD Prompt

Dec 9, 2011

I'm working on my first VBA project that requires 12 fields to be manually input of which one field is a file path. I need this path for multiple reasons, but the one reason I'm having a problem with is using the location of the path in conjunction with calling a bat file or executing a cmd prompt that is at that path.

Path Location, minus file name:

Code:
sheets("b. Fill Out Required Info").Select
Range("B18").Select
Actual Path found in B18:
C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files

File attempting to execute:

CopyFileNames.bat

I can manually put all of this together and get what I want by using:

Code:
Shell "C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest FilesCopyFileNames.bat", 1

The problem is, every time this will be used, a different path will be used, but the same batch file name will be used. So, rather than having to manually input the file path every time, is there a way to replace "C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files" with the cell reference of the path listed above? I've tried different methods of this but I cannot seem to get it.

It would be even better if I could just use the cmd prompt found within the batch and run it directly from vba; the prompt I'm running is as follows:

Code:
cd C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files dir /b/o |find ".xml">ListOfFileNames.txt

How can I put that cmd into VBA? I tried different versions of this with no success:

Code:
Shell "cmd.exe /c cd C:UsersNickDesktopSubmission ToolTest Files dir /b/o |find ".xml">ListOfFileNames.txt"

Notice that the path is the same as the path shown in B18 above. It would be great if that path would be dependent on the cell referenced above.

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Open Workbook Within Zip File & Not Have Read-Only Status

Aug 12, 2009

I understand that vba can determine if the current file is read-only using the following to return true / false. GetAttr(ThisWorkbook.Path) And vbReadOnly

which seems to work fine for determining if the file is read-only, as there is another instance of the file already open. However when opening a file straight from a zipped directory (i.e. not extracting the file first), Excel opens the file as read-only. The above code returns false in this instance, i guess because the workbook path has a .zip ending rather than the normal .xls etc endings. how to return true that the zip file is read-only?
