Save Copy Of Open Workbook And Make PDF For Archive

Apr 27, 2012

Code, couldn't make it work with VB HTML Maker. I'm new with VBA Basically my idea is when someone open default file, insert data, try to save file, macros save workbook with inserted data as another file (*.xlsx) and make pdf in another folder. Pdf part is working fine, but with second part just can't find right option.

Pdf part

Private Sub Workbook_AfterSave(ByVal Success As Boolean)
Dim Name As String
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
Name = ThisWorkbook.Path & "PDF Archive" & ActiveSheet.Range("F6") & " Invoice " & ActiveSheet.Range("B11")


Excel part

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim ActSheet As Worksheet
Dim ActBook As Workbook
Dim CurrentFile As String
Dim NewFileType As String
Dim NewFile As String

Save A Copy Of The Open Workbook

Dec 4, 2009

I know that the line in my code Worksheets.Copy is NOT what I need to have to make this work, but with it it's the closest I could get to what I want.

I want the user to be able to click the SAVE command button, be allowed to either accept or change the default save options, save the current workbook and then go right back to the form that has the SAVE command button. Sounds simple, I know, but when you don't know the right commands to save the WORKBOOK, not just the WORKSHEETS, it becomes a P.I.A.

I know there's a lot there, but here's my code, which is just a slightly altered version of the code by Ron de Bruin:

Private Sub SaveData_Click()

'If no date has been selected then don't allow SAVE
If PubDateLabel.Caption = "" Then

MsgBox "Publication Date not set. You must select a date before saving.", vbCritical, "No Publication Date!"
Exit Sub

End If

Open Workbook / Copy / Close Without Offer To Save?

Mar 12, 2014

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"
End With

Jun 4, 2009

I'm working on the following
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"D:CommondataIBMmainBRANCHBURG-PRODUCTS-BOM-ALUMINUM-UPDATE-" & Ucase(Format(DateAdd("y", 0, Date)), "YYYY-MM-DD")&".XLS"

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False

Date: 2009-06-03

My problem is in the date formula the day is not always the same. In the sample case it's 03 at other times the day will change.

is there a way too get this too work irregardles of what the day might be?

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.

Make Workbook Open- Open Correct Month Workbook

Jul 8, 2006

I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook

open macro-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim dTime As Date
dTime = Time
If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _
dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then
End If
End Sub

This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4

Workbook Save, Make Sure Active Cell Is A1

Jun 10, 2006

When saving a file that has 5 sheets that extend to the right of the users screen, sometimes the left part of the report is left somewhat hidden because the last person to save it was using the part to the far right. Is there a way to move all the active cell to A1 and make sure rows A:D or so are showing?

Copy / Archive Old Data

Feb 26, 2008

I have attached a sample in my second post here.

I have searched for many hours and I cannot find what I would like to do or indeed anything similar.

My issue is that I have been asked to build a spreadsheet (I am of novice ability) to create a league of sorts relating to percentages earned by 8 different shifts at work. These percentages are then converted to points and via that through a ranking formula into a weekly table. That I have done but I have been asked if it is possible (I know it must be somehow) to somehow retain last weeks positions. So for instance, weekly percentages have been added the table has been populated, next week the same happens but what I need is prior to new information being added the previous weeks "league positions" are transferred over into a "last weeks" league positions table. Whether this can be automated or manually via button click I have as yet no idea. This problem has me now reading a "VBA for beginners" book but I do not think I will be proficient quickly enough!

Workbook Open To Remind To Save As

Apr 22, 2009

I often make templates of forms for weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc., forms for others to use and I tell them to be sure to use Save As... with a new name in order to keep the original form intact. We do not have a common location for templates here. I have tried a Workbook_open() macro to give them a reminder message, but the macro gets saved with the new file, which asks them again to use Save As..., which they shouldn't do.

Is there a way to delete the macro from the new file? Or some other method to acheive the goal?

Archive Data From Sheet In Workbook Based On Date

May 17, 2006

Here is what I want to do in words- how do I translate it into VBA? I have 2 sheets in a workbook (Tally & Archive) The Tally sheet has aa set of buttons which record tasks completed (the range of these is E9 : E29) I have a current date box ( A" which uses the =today() formula). I want to archive the range E9:E29 in Tally to consecutive daily columns in the Archive sheet

My logic has got me thus far:-
select Archive sheet
look at A1 to the end of the row
If the active cell is empty then
put the Value of "Tally" A2" into the active cell
Copy the range E9:E29 in Tally to the column under the active cell
Return to the Tally sheet

Macro To Open / Close / Save Workbook?

Mar 14, 2014

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).

Open Workbook, Run Macro, Save - Automate

Sep 16, 2006

I have 5 Excel files. The first one is Main, and the other 4 are subfiles, namely A1, A2, A3 & A4. I have a need to open Main, then click a button to start a Macro (in Main) which will do the following, sequentially:

1. open A1
2. run a Macro in A1
3. close and save A1.
4. open A2
5. run a Macro in A2
12 close and save A4.

The files A1..A4 are a file server and being shared. If they're being used by another user, it cannot be saved - so I would have to skip it and continue with the next A. It would be great if start Excel, open Main, and run the Macro in Main fully automatically.

Can I Change A Setting Somewhere To Make Close Its Default Blank Workbook When I Open An Existing One

Feb 9, 2007

I have Excel 2002. If I start the program it opens with a blank workbook, called "Book 1".

If I then open an existing workbook, I have two Excel buttons in the Windows taskbar: the one I just opened, and the blank one titled Book 1.

At work I have Excel 2003. The blank "Book 1" is also there when I start the program, but if I then open an existing workbook, the Book 1 goes away. I like this way better.

My question is: Is this just the way versions 2002 vs. 2003 work, or can I change a setting somewhere to make Excel 2002 close its default blank workbook when I open an existing one?

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"), _

ActiveX Combobox - Linked Cell Reference Lost After Save / Close And Re-open Workbook

Feb 11, 2013

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.

Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html

Feb 16, 2010

I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:

- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)

- Copy paste as values

- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)

- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)

- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file

My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.

Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.

I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.

Make New Copy Of Entire Workbook Macro

Mar 1, 2010

I've created an Excel 2007 workbook with about a dozen worksheets that are full of formulas and links to other workbooks, as well as conditional formatting that isn't backwardly compatible with Excel 2003. However, many people who want to see this workbook are still on Excel 2003. I need to recreate an Excel 2003 compatible workbook with the appearance and formatting of the original and have all the formulas and links converted to values. So, the final product will "look" just like the original without the conditional formatting, links or formulas. It will just have the look, colors and values displayed for all cells.

Essentially, I want a macro that will copy however many worksheets (1-n) are in an Excel 2007 workbook to a new Excel 2003 workbook. I'd like the worksheets to retain their label names as well.
