Save Back Up Copy Online At Each Save

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet which I would like to back up online every time it is saved.

I have a sub, OnlineFile(), which I have used many times without any problems, which creates a .BAT file to use ftp to upload files onto our server. As arguments, it takes the local file path that you want to upload (or download to), the name of the file as you would like it stored, the online file path, and whether you want to upload the file onto the server, or download it off the server.

It should be very easy to combine the two: what I tried was:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, cancel As Boolean)
ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls"
Call OnlineFile(ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls", "Rubbish.xls", "wwwrootexcelfilesMasters", "Upload")
Kill ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls"
End Sub

Every time I ran this, the file got uploaded correctly, but Excel had a series of problems. Often the code ran fine the first time it was run, but crashed the second time round.

After a fair bit of troubleshooting, I found that the problem came about when the file was trying to save itself - i.e. after the end of the sub. If you pause any macros from running, it still saved fine, but when the code ran, it found errors, froze or closed excel.

My thought at this point was that the code was fragmented or something. I made a new sheet, and retyped just the relevant bits of code (i.e. the BeforeSave sub, the OnlineFile sub and created the form called by OnlineFile). The problem persisted.

I've come up with a workaround for this now (which uses the same OnlineFile sub & form, and works fine), but it's driving me crazy - why does this cause excel to die? Particularly on the second time through? The code seems far too simple to cause such problems - is there a bug in Excel perhaps (I'm using Excel 2000 on Windows XP).

Create Back Up Copy On Save

Aug 11, 2007

I have created a spreadsheet for my friend. As my friend is a little 'scared' of excel I created drop downlists to complete the spreadsheet i have also protected all the cells that have formula in them so that they can not be deleted.

the spreadsheet he opens is prefect, he then updates this spreadsheet and has done something wrong but doesn't realise, he then saves the spreadsheet, it is at this point he wants a back up copy of the perfect spreadsheet, that way if he goes back into the saved copy and realises that something is wrong he can go to the back up copy and start again. This spreadsheet is filled in once a week, that way if he has done something wrong and has to refer to the back up copy he only loses one weeks worth of work.

I did say that he could choose save as instead of just save and re-name the file but again he is worried that he will forget!

Can we create a back up file automatically? If yes, can some please tell me how to?

I have never used macros or anything so if you can do this, can I ask that you also explain to me how to do it.

Back Up File On Save

Jul 2, 2009

I am currently using this code which automatically saves a back up copy to another location on my system.

However, the only way i can get it to work is to assign it to a command button. Is there any way in which this will work once i just click the save button.

Excel 2003 :: Unable To Allow Users To Make Changes To Workbook But Only Be Able To Do Save As Not Save

Dec 3, 2012

I have an expense report, which was originally done in Excel 2003. It still prompts users to open as read only however if they select no, they are not prompted for the password, and it has allowed them to save, so when the next person opens it, they have the previous person's report instead of the clean workbook. I have tried everything to put a password onto it. I know this is really basic stuff, but maybe I am missing a step? I want the end user to be able to make all the changes they want in read only mode and then do a save as, but if the select No when prompted "Open as Read-only?" they should have to put a password in.

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'm trying to make a macro check if a file has been saved (ever). If so I want the macro to do a regular save (with already esatablished filename and location) before it proceeds with the rest of the macro. If the file hasnt been saved (if it runs from a new workbook) then I want it to pop up the dialog, so that the user can choose the name and location of the file before the macro continues .

The macro itself is saved in personal.xlsx.

Disable Manual Save But Let VBA Save?

Oct 5, 2011

I need my spreadsheet to require that the user save it by clicking a macro button, and not the Save or SaveAs options in the file menu. I have found out how to disable saving entirely:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
If SaveAsUI Then SaveAsUI = False
End Sub

But this of course prevents my macro button from saving too!

Is there any way to allow VBA code to save the spreadsheet while simultaneously preventing the user from saving through the menu?

VBA (Save As) No Error But File Does Not Save

Oct 10, 2011

I have written the following simple macro to import some data into a worksheet and then prompt the user to save the file in Excel 2003 format (the system to which we will upload this data does not accept formats later than 2003). The template is in "*.xlsm" format.

The code executes without error, but when the user hits the "Save" button in the "Save As" dialog box, nothing happens. The "Save As" box closes, but no file is saved.

Private Sub cmdImportData_Click()
Dim sFName As String
'On Error Resume Next
'prompt the user to save the file in "*.xls" format
sFName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename("upload", "Excel files (*.xls), *.xls")
End Sub

- Disable Save As And Define The Save Name

Nov 16, 2006

I have a file that I have created that the users will use as a master template to create data that I need. Once they have finished, I want the file to define what the filename should be when they click save.

At the same time, I want to disable "Save As..." as some users will just use that and then will use a file name that another macro (that I will use) won't recognise.

i have a master workbook. it gets used daily as a template and saved as another file name. the file name is generated by 5 cells that each contain different data (date, street, town, state). is it possible when i hit the save or save as button/icon, for a file name to be automatically generated from the cells i have data in??

Okay, so you want to create a workbook via code, prompt the user for a SaveAs name, then save this workbook?

VBA - Copy Cell Before Save

Feb 27, 2008

I've been playing with writing a VBA script that will copy and display the value of a cell right before saving the document.

I already have a script that saves the savetime to a cell but have been unsuccesful in using any code from that.

What I'm trying to do is to have the VBA copy different cells depending on the value of another cell.

I've been trying with some IF rules but don't really know if I'm doing this right. I'm also not sure if the code should be in "Sheet1" or in "ThisWorkBook" and if it should be a Private Sub - I've pretty much just tried a bit of this and that.

Let me try and sketch out the scenario:

I want to copy the value of a cell into a second cell depending on the value of a third cell - just before the document is saved.

How could that be done with the cells listed below?Copy-to: "A1" (the value of "B?" depending on the value of "C1")
Copy-from: "B1" IF "C1"=1
Copy-from: "B2" IF "C1"=2
Copy-from: "B3" IF "C1"=3
Copy-from: "B4" IF "C1"=4

Another problem I've been having is to change the colour of the font in a given cell if another cell returns a value of, say, 1.

Save Copy As Same Path And Name

Jul 1, 2008

I want a Macro which will copy my workbook and paste it into a new workbook. Then it will automatically save it under the SAME name as the original and the SaveAs Box must show up (for cosmetic fixes). It is important it asks if it wants to save it under the same name. Example: My file is called "Summary_2008" and when I hit the Macro it will do those things and it will ask me if I want to save it in the SAME directory under the name "Summary_2008" (I will only add a number then).

(The macro must know how to read the original name since I have 7 possible filenames - it depends on which company I choose, that is why it is important it is saved under the same name)

Sub Zamenjaj()
Dim WS As Worksheet
For Each WS In Worksheets
Zadnja_vrstica = WS.UsedRange.Rows.Count
Zadnji_stolpec = WS.UsedRange.Columns.Count
For rwIndex = 1 To Zadnja_vrstica
For colIndex = 1 To Zadnji_stolpec

If WS.Cells(rwIndex, colIndex).HasFormula Then..........................

Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

The file name is just the date only and is formatted "" e.g. 13.08.14

VBA To Copy Worksheet To New Workbook And Save

Oct 19, 2011

How to copy the entire worksheet into a new workbook and save the file to a specific directory with the following filename format ("exceptions191011 - ie. the word exceptions followed by today's date in ddmmyy format).

Here is what I've got so far:


Sub SaveAs()

Dim FName As String
Dim FPath As String

FPath = "G:Exceptions"
FName = "Exceptions" & Format(Date, "ddmmyy") & ".xls"

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").SaveAs Filename:=FPath & "" & FName

End Sub

How to add the following condition that if a file already exists with that name then to bring up an error message stating the file already exists? As well as save the new workbook, it appears to close the original workbook - can I stop this?
