For All Workbooks In Folder - Copy Range To Different Workbook - Save To New Folder?

Apr 21, 2014

I have up to 50 workbooks in one folder with data in a specific range. I also have one workbook which includes additional data, including conditional formatting and dropdowns. I need to copy the desired range from the first workbook in the source folder to the second workbook, then save the latter to my destination folder, using the same name as the first. I need to repeat this process for all workbooks in the source folder.

SaveAs - Copy Sheet Into New Workbook And Save It In Same Folder As Original Workbook

Jun 17, 2014

I have been trying to edit a code which previously saved a copy in a new workbook to a specific folder/path. (Additionally it copies and clears some figures, but this is working as it should.)

However I would like the copy to be saved at the same location as the original workbook, regardless of the path the original workbook is saved.

I.e if I need to move the workbook containing the code to a new folder/location, when using the macro, the new copy should be stored in the same folder/location as the original one.

For now it is only saving the copy into "My Documents"

Sub Macro1()
' Macro1 Macro
' Macro recorded 16-02-2009 by ceng

Sheets("Bunker ROB").Select
Sheets("Bunker ROB").Copy
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
ActiveWorkbook.Path & Range("D3"), _
FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

Feb 10, 2014

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Save Backup Of Workbook Before Close

Dec 15, 2009

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?

Save Backup Copy Before Closing

Aug 18, 2007

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.

Option Explicit

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.

Backup Copy Of Workbook Macro

Nov 28, 2013

I am using this code to create a backup copy of my workbook:

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.

Copy Into New Workbook & Save With Date In File Name

Aug 7, 2008

I have a report which I have written a macro to reformat, I then want to copy the sheet (Remake) containing the report into a new workbook as the only sheet in the new workbook. I want the sheet name to be changed from "Remake" to "Duty to Consider" and I want the new workbook to save itself automatically as "Duty to Consider - Month/Year" - in this case it would be "Duty to Consider - August 2008".

I think that a Pop Up box which lets me input the Month and Year of the report I am working on would be useful in naming the new workbook, if this box popped up when I click the button which runs my Macro that'd be great. Here is the code I am using to reformat my report. This works fine I just need the changes I mentioned. Application. ScreenUpdating = False 'this will turn on screen updating, making the macro run faster

'This will select the DTC Tab and remove rows 1-4
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

'This will add a filter to the data to remove duplicate rows
Range("A1:J1307").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, Unique:=True

'This will copy the data on the DTC tab and copy it into the Remake Tab

I have a sheet that users fill out and there is a macro on that sheet to copy the info to another workbook, save and close.

I have a file that I enter data into and I want to be able to save the file(s) in a folder according to the date. Can the following code be amended to save the files in a folder with the name being the date. Example:

If I enter data in today - when I clicked Save File As it would look for a folder named 2007-12-18 and if it wasn't there it would create one and save all files with todays date in that folder. If I use the file tomorrow it would look for a folder named 2007-12-19 and save all files with tomorrows date in that folder.

Option Explicit
Sub Button14_Click() 'variation of shg's code
Dim SaveAsFile
SaveAsFile = Application.GetSaveAsFilename _
(fileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xls), *.xls")
If SaveAsFile = False Then Exit Sub
If SaveAsFile = ThisWorkbook.FullName Then
MsgBox "Please select another path and file name.", vbCritical, "Save As Error"
Goto ErrorHandler
End If
On Error Goto ErrorHandler

Save Workbook In Same Folder As Source Input Data

May 2, 2014

I currently have a macro to import user selected .Dat files into a new workbook, each on its own worksheet. My problem comes in trying to save this new workbook in the same folder as the imported .Dat files. I was thinking there should be a way to gather the file path from the imported files and use that in the Save As command.

I would like a Macro, or some sort of code, that when activated… it unprotects ALL sheets (which use same password), creates a folder on the users desktop, and saves a copy of the document in there… entitled "copy of {filename}" It must also remove the "write access" password…

Dim flag As String
fol = "E:Excelb4macrobackups" ' change to match the folder path

If Ans5 = vbNo Then Exit Sub
If Ans5 = vbCancel Then MsgBox "Procedure Terminated!", vbExclamation: Exit Sub.........
