I call the macro below from a Workbook_BeforeClose sub; however, if the user has not saved changes before they hit the close then the Sub SaveFile runs and then after the backup save they are then asked do you want to save changes.
I initially had this sub run with Workbook_BeforeSave, but I don't really want to run this everytime the user selects save.
Any ideas on how to how the save changes first and then the backup?
I need to save an excel workbook when a "backup" button is pressed to a folder named "Backups". I want the name to be the "date" (09/07/2013) only and I want it to automatically overwrite anything previously saved for that day.
One of my computers pulls info from my cash register once everyday (sales info). Then I have a excel monthly sales sheet that pulls the info from the register info and puts it in the right places. So the computer pulls the register info at 9:20pm everyday, then I have my task manager open excel at 9:25 everyday and it has a workbook open macro to automatically pull the info into the excel spreadsheet. Here's my problem-- I need to close it.
I'm sure I could use a workbook close macro, but when it tries to close it won't it come up with a save, don't save, cancel prompt? Nobody will be there to hit SAVE so it won't close? Is there just a macro that could save it then close it?
Sub Macro1() Dim NewWB As Workbook, NewName As String Set NewWb = Workbooks.Add NewName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(ThisWorkbook.Name) NewWb.SaveAs NewName NewWb.Close False Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "/" & ThisWorkbook.Name) End Sub It seems like I need to rename the sheet I am working on in order for this code to work. If I do not, it tells me that it "cannot save this workbook with the same name as another open workbook".
I am trying to use this code to get around an error with Excel described here: [url]
I would like to have the sheet save itself (not "Save As"), close, reopen, and continue running the macro. What adjustments do I need to make to this code to do this. I have tried different things, but I must be getting the syntax wrong.
I am trying to create a form button that will save as and close the active workbook. I have the Save As code working but I can't find any code to close the workbook that will work. A couple of issues: I don't have control of what the workbook is called - the user will name it - so I can't do a simple Workbooks (" ").Close. Also, I don't want to quit the application. I don't know if the user will have other worksheets open. I also tried ActiveWorkbook.Close and that didn't seem to work either. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
Workbook 1 has references to workbooks 2,3,4,5,6. When I click the top cross and choose Save All with Workbook 1 active, the deactivate event in workbook 6 runs to the end as it tries to close, but it can't close because workbook 1 references it. So nothing further happens until I click the top cross again. Then everything closes without any more prompts. Not good. If I could ensure workbook 1 closes first that should solve the problem. There may be another way of course.
I have attached 2 blank files to show the problem. test1 references test2. Open test1. It will open test2. Make a change to both files, activate test 1 and click the top cross, choose save all. Nothing happens usually.
I need to have a workbook (all of them in a folder, ideally) refresh in the middle of the night. The file is large so the refresh takes a full minute. I know I can't auto refresh a closed workbook (pretty sure anyway), and I can't leave the workbook open for various reasons.
So I'm thinking I could have a macro in an open excel (it kicks off on open) that will open a particular workbook elsewhere (the one I need refreshed), open it, refresh it and close/save it. Ideally it would do this for the entire group of workbooks in the folder but I'd be happy to start with just one. I would like to set it to occur every twelve hours (so at midnight, say, this would occur - I would just have to leave the workbook with the macro in it open on a computer so that it runs and completes this task every night).
I've got a kind of "menu" sheet that will pull up various reports from Excel spreadsheets. Rather than having the user work with the live data, the menu opens the file and saves it as a copy, closing the original. This is working fine.
The tweak I want to add is, since the user is looking at a copy rather than the live data, I don't want them to save when closing. Is it possible to programatically add a bit of code to the new copy to handle this?
Here's a sample of one of the menu button's code:
Private Sub CommandButton18_Click() Dim wb As Workbook Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="J:Z PII OvensRack Repair TrackingRack Repair List.xlsx") With wb.Worksheets("Sheet1") .Unprotect Password:="pass" ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Copy End With
When it gets to "If ActiveWorkbook.Saved = False Then" it does put the question out "Do you want to save changes" I click Yes and it doesn't save it.. I have tried both activeworkbook and thisworkbook ... I copied the code and verified all is good to go..
I have a macro that opens all workbooks from one directory and runs a macro for each workbook to clean up the data. I cannot figure out how to take all those open workbooks and save them to another directory and close the workbook. Also, I do not want the macro workbook (xlsm) to save. I only want it to close. I am working in 2007 Excel.
Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.
I was able to find the coding that I needed for being able to have a backup of my file. So when I save a workbook and close I also get a backup copy in another folder that is dated. But I am having problems getting the code to work. Probably because I do not understand it correctly. Here it is.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs "C:Documents and SettingsTeacherDesktopTEST" & _ Format( Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") & " - " & ThisWorkbook. Name End Sub
Where it has, ThisWorkbook.Name, do I put the name of the workbook? Not sure.
It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.
These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.
I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.
These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.
Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.
I am using this code to create a backup copy of my workbook:
Code: Sub DOUGHMON()Dim fname fname = "C:UsersAndrewDesktopWEEKLY SALES REPORTS" & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy") & ".xlsm" ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=fname End Sub
The only problem with this code is that my current file gets closed and the backup is open. I'm not sure if that is exactly what happens, but when it is done the current file that is open is the copy, and I would like the original file to stay open.
When a user X's (clicks of the X in the titlebar) of a user form, I want to save whatever input has been made to that point and close the application. this is what I tried but it neither saved input nor closed the application
I know how to add a save and close button but i do not know how to make it instantly available in every new workbook that i open. Currently i click the button and it looks for the macro in the first excel book that i created it in.
how do i make that macro become a default in every workbook?
I have a macro that has to open another worksheet and get data and close the sheet. The problem is when the sheet closes after I have gotten the data it asks if I want to save it. I don't want the user of my macro to see this option because it slows things down. To avoid this in the past I had the worksheet save itself so that it wouldn't ask me to save. Now the worksheet is large and it takes a while to save and it is getting slow. Is there any way not to save it but close it without having excel asking if you want to save it?
I need to use the BeforeClose event to save the workbook with the same name when a user closes it. (82 users and they all seem to want to give it their own name.) I have the following code in the BeforeClose event but would like to eliminate the prompt "this file already exists, do you want to replace it" I have tried using the Application.DisplayAlerts = False but this seems to stop the workbook from saving. I have a public demention called wbName and is set to the workbook name in an outo open macro
Public wbName Public Sub auto_open() wbName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
UserForm2.Show MsgBox "PLEASE do Not insert rows/columns or enter calculations" _ & Chr(10) & " " _ & Chr(10) & "Enter Only Account Name, Date, and Corresponding_ Calls/Details", vbCritical, "Caution" End Sub
