Save As Macro Not Working

Feb 17, 2010

I have a macro to export two worksheets and save as, but the save as part will not work, it just exports to Book1.

Ive checked the directory and everything is fine.

I want the value of a cell in one of the exported worksheet to be included in the save as name.

I'm just wondering if the code needs to somehow specify the worksheet to get the cell value from or will it default to the first worksheet. but either way my code is still not working and i can't tell why.

Should i just create a seperate macro for the save as?

Here is the ...

Macro Not Working Except In One Tab, Must Save And Reopen To Work In Others.

Oct 17, 2009

I have a wierd issue. I have this macro for a workbook i use and if i run the macro in the first tab it runs and works fine. When i select the other tab and run it it gives me a debug error. If i close the worksheet save it and reopen it and run it in the other tab it runs fine.

So in otherwords i have to run the macro in the tab desired, save it , and always close and reopen the file to run it in the other tabs. I know the code is correct because it runs flawlessly without errors but i must be missing something.

Also i currently have the macro to run on the active tab/worksheet. Can i have it run on multiple tabs? i have 15 20 and 30 tabs in this example file but in my real file i have many more milage intervals ( some tabs i would not want to select ). It gets tedious having to select one tab at a time, run the macro, rinse and repeat.

For Example Run Macro First, in the first tab. It works perfectly. Go to the second tab and run the first macro. It gives a debug error. If you save the file and reopen it and go to teh second tab and run the macro again it works.

Auto Save Sheet To PDF Macro Not Working When Transferred From Win XP To 7

Jun 3, 2014

I'm fairly new to macros but somehow i managed to create all the required macros for my project through googling and the like. The problem is that i created my macro enabled excel file in XP and when i transferred it to Windows 7 the auto save to PDF macro stopped working with the Runtime Error '5' Invalid Procedure, call or Argument. The highlighted error is as follows.

ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _
Type:=xlTypePDF, _
FileName:="C:WindowsTemp emporaryexam.pdf", _
Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _
OpenAfterPublish:=True

This auto save is supposed to work when a hyperlink is clicked or when the set time runs out (Working Macro).

UN: Kill And Save As Not Working

Sep 3, 2009

I hate to post this again, but I still cannot figure this out and I haven't gotten any response. I need help folks.

The code below forces a new file to download each time the workbook TEST_CASE_1.xls is opened. I can't seem to get it to kill the _temp.xls file or save the new file (without being prompted "Do you want save"). Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

Cascaded Open / Close / Save Not Working

Aug 3, 2009

I have a 'Summary' workbook which collates values from a series of 'sub-workbooks', (and can also update values in those sub workbooks).
the subworkbooks are setup so that when they are saved they also copy certain values out to another 'backup' file.
So there are 2 possible routes that the files will be used in:

1) SubWorkbook opened directly
- User opens SubWorkbook and makes some changes.
- User closes the SubWorkbook saving changes, or clicks the save button. The BeforeSave event opens the "restore" workbook, copies over the key values from the subworkbook, then saves & closes the "restore" workbook.

2) SubWorkbook opened remotely
- User / Admin opens the "Summary" workbook and changes an option.
- The summary workbook opens a subworkbook and makes changes, then saves it. The subworkbook should (as before), then open the restore workbook and save the key values etc.

The problem is in the second scenario the 'restore' workbook doesn't get opened.

I have created a set of 3 workbooks to illustrate the problem here.
Book1.xls = Summary workbook
Book2.xls = Subworkbook
Book3.xls = Restore workbook.

If you open book2 and then save it the 'BeforeSave' event will cause it to open book3 and write the output of 'Now()' to the next free row of book3-columnA, before then closing and saving book3,......

Code Stopped Working - Can No Longer Copy And Save Worksheet

Jul 31, 2012

I have been working on this application for the past couple weeks and I have this module of code that copy's a worksheet into a new workbook and changes everything into values. However I have added buttons onto this sheet and after running the code again it froze the program, in which I had to manually end. It gave an error afterwards however I don't remember what it said. Now everything I try to run or step through it, nothing happens. And I have turned Events and ScreenUpdating on.

I would also like to note that it won't allow me to perform actions like unhide sheets or unprotect them. The code has not been changed either so what has happened to disable all functionality.

Macro To Check If Saved Then Save Else Bring Up Save As Dialog

Sep 6, 2012

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 save.as 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.

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

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

The format of B5 looks like - 13/08/2014 16:39

The file path has folders for each year in format "yyyy" with each year having sub folders for each month in format "mm".

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

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro

Oct 16, 2009

I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.

I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).

The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.

If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.

The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)

The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Macro Not Working On Other Spreadsheet

Feb 7, 2014

The attached workbook contains a macro ("Transfer_Data") that copies values from one cell to another when the "Update Progress" button (near cell A3) is selected. It works perfectly fine in this workbook but when I try the same code in another workbook, which looks and operates exactly like this one, nothing happens.

Is this due to a security setting or missing code line items?

One Macro Stops Another From Working

Dec 2, 2011

I have this macro which sits in the workbook module:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Static OldRng As Range

On Error Resume Next
If Application.CutCopyMode = xlCopy Or Application.CutCopyMode = xlCut Then
OldRng.EntireColumn.FormatConditions(1).Delete
OldRng.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Delete

[Code] .......

It's used to highlight the selected/active row.

But, as soon as I run another macro, it simply stops working entirely and I'm left with a row permanently highlighted until you manually remove the conditional formatting. All formats and cell colours controlled in the other macro stop working as well. This is the other (edited for publishing) macro, which is used to send an email, and is found in a module:

Code:
Sub Send_Mail()
'this sends an email that sends a text message

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Dim MyButton As String
Dim strTo As String

[Code] .......

I didn't write the first macro so I'm not sure where the problem is? I'm guessing there is something in the code that is stopping it from working (i.e. running conditional formats) as soon as another macro is run? Is that was is happening?

Subtotal Not Working In Macro

Jan 15, 2009

I've got a semi-recorded macro to format a report I run, and towards the end it deals with sorting, subtotalling, formatting text etc. The main function of the macro is to split a large report into several smaller reports defined by whichever manager name appears in the relevant column. The smaller reports need subtotalling by 2 different columns so I have the following macro code :


Cells.Select
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=2, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True
Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=1, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(5), _
Replace:=False, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True

For some reason this only subtotals by the second column and not the first. I tried swapping them over so GroupBy1 then GroupBy2 but it's still the same. Anyone got any ideas why this might be? I appreciate it's not the smoothest code I could use but I don't know enough about code to do any better.

Ctrl+down Not Working In Macro

Jul 22, 2009

I've got a column that auto-populates from anther column depending on what's input, and that's working fine. I also have a button set up to select and copy the auto-populated data. I just recorded myself select the top cell and hit shift+ctrl+down to select just the values that are populated. What it does, however, is selects the blank ones too. I know the counta() function would work, but I don't know how to input that into a macro.

The macro I have now is:

Sub Copy()
Range("B2").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.Copy
End Sub

The column is only 25 rows tall.

IF Function Not Working For Entire Row While On Macro

May 10, 2014

I got a problem with a macro i'm working on. I got column D which contains text as "Figures", "Toys", "3DS", "PS3" etc. I also got column N where i need the macro to display "Toys" if it's a toy, figure, etc; or "Games" if it's "PS3", "PS4" etc.

I'm using the following code, to also select only blank rows (so to ignore row 1 which is table header). Problem is that the result shows only "Games".

VB:
Columns("N:N").Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-9]=""*toys*"",""Toys"",""Games"")"

Saving As Stops Macro Working

Feb 6, 2008

i have a worksheet named for example 'allocation 1' this is a master document and is opened and modified and 'saved as' under a customer name. This then stops a few important macros working properly because they refer to the original title and not the new saved title. Is there any code that will let the macro recognise any new title it is saved under?
