Save As Macro With Location Prompt But Fixed File Name ?

Dec 29, 2008

For a sheet that many non-expert users will use on different systems I need a macro that let's them save, print and send the results of their work. So I made a macro that makes a copy of only 1 sheet of the workbook and saves it with a given name to a given location. The problem is that I want a location prompt to ask the user where they want the file saved, while giving/suggesting them a fixed filename. A lot of different users will make and use their sheets so I need a certain naming policy to manage all the files. (date, location, etc)

Creating A Reference To A Workbook With A Fixed Location But With A Changeable File Name

Jun 12, 2008

I'm trying take a reference from some workbooks (e.g. WB1.xls,WB2.xls,WB3.xls,...etc)
They are all placed in one folder but there filename is subject to change,

I need to get the result of Cells A1 from WB1.xls+A1 from WB2.xls + A1 from WB3...etc
to shown on AA1 in another workbook(e.g. Collected.XLS)

Is this possible knowing that workbooks filenames are changeable?
Moreover Can the value of A1 from any new workbook added to the same folder be added automatically?...

Can the formula typed in AA1 from Collected.xls be draged down?(So as to show the sum of Cells B1 and C1.....etc) from each workbook?

VBA - Go To Website And Download File From Save Prompt

May 24, 2013

How to save a file onto the computer using VBA. The code template below that I found on another forum seems promising, except when I go to the desktop to access it, the .csv file has what looks like the page's source code instead of the actual file I want. This may be because when I go to the url, it doesn't automatically download the file; rather, I am asked to save the file to a certain location (since I don't know the path name of the uploaded file on the site).

Is there any way to alter this code to accommodate this, or will I have to use a different code entirely?

VB:
Sub Test()
Dim FileNum As Long
Dim FileData() As Byte
Dim MyFile As String
Dim WHTTP As Object

[Code] .....

Save As File Type To Parent Location

Apr 21, 2006

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. What I need to hapen, is for this code to save the workbook in the same directory as the origional file. 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.

Excel 2010 :: Save Open File Location?

Nov 26, 2012

I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.

In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.

VBA For Bypassing Replace File Prompt When Saving As A File In Macro

Jul 7, 2008

I am setting up a "save as" macro that saves a file by replacing another file in a folder. Even though the macro has been recorded by approving the replacement (the prompt appears "the file --- already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"), when I run the macro, I am again prompted about replacing the file. Is it possible to avoid the prompt so the file is automatically saved by replacing the named file?

Macro To Download Csv File From A Dynamic Date Based Url To A File Location

Feb 23, 2014

I have a requirement to download a lot of historical data files from the archieve of an website. The url goes something like this: [URL]....

This downloads file for 21022014 ie. 21-Feb-2014. I need to be able to have a facility to have a selection criteria on my user form (in excel) where I specify a date range and the macro automatically downloads all the valid excel files available within that date range (files for Saturday, Sunday and some holiday dates will not be available in the website archive database) one after the other (like at single clcik of button) into a specific location (predefined viz.. c:/Users/EOD files/) on my laptop. Best would be if I am able to select the save location run time by using a 'Browse' like feature where I go and choose my local laptop folder...same type when we try uploading a file from our laptop to the web..

Macro To Prompt Where To Browse For The File

Aug 28, 2009

I have looked in books and online and can't seem to locate how to create a macro that opens a browse function. From Excel I would like to click a button to start a macro and have that macro prompt me where to browse for the file. There is a lot of other code that will go after this step (which I already have), so once I click to "open" a file I want the macro to continue.

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).

Macro Of Formula That Shows Character Location Number Of Text File

Aug 14, 2014

I am looking for a way to show the character location number of a text file, possibly in the first row or a macro that I can run at any given location that will give me the location # I am currently viewing.

Currently, when I open the file I can see the character # at the opening screen (see attached file) but they disappear when it actually converts. I would like to be able to keep the character location ruler once the file is opened in Excel so I don't have to manually count.

Currently I have information that includes numerous distributors information on one sheet. The code below separates each distributors information into a new tab and a new workbook, names the workbook and saves it in the specified file path.

Macro: Save File & Automatically Overwrite Old File

Oct 11, 2006

I presently have a macro that, when run, takes to conents of C4 and C6 and saves a new version of the file being worked on into a folder on my desktop. I love the macro with the exception of one part: I don't want to be prompted to overwrite the file if it already exists. How can I change this macro so that, when pressed, it overwrites the file without prompting the user and waiting for their answer?

Here is the current

Prompt For Save When No Changes Made

Dec 10, 2004

I have an excel spreadsheet that when opened and closed prompts to save changes, even when no changes have been made.

The spreadsheet is a copy of another spreadsheet which has then been modified. The original spreadsheet doesn't have this quirk.

There are no 'links' in the spreadsheets. Which was my first thought.

VBA To Save As In Specific Path With Prompt

Oct 6, 2011

I'd like a macro that will:

Save my workbook
Then
Open the SaveAs box with the path already pointing to a specific directory and with the Name and file format already entered (.xls)

This is basically to save time navigating through our folder structure (which is a real mess). I don't want to automatically saveas the file as the target folder will change each month and the last part of the file name will chance (month). So I'd like a bit of flexibility rather than total automation.
