I'm trying to save a copy an excel file in the same directory of the original file. The code is pretty standard but it does not work if the file is stored in C: (only c: ) Is that a bug or am I doing something wrong? Anyways here is the code in case someone is interested in trying it out:
Sub CreateCopy() ChDrive ThisWorkbook.Path ChDir ThisWorkbook.Path fileSaveName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename( _ fileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xls), *.xls", _ InitialFileName:="CMS_" & Format(Now(), "mm-dd-yyyy")) If fileSaveName <> False Then MsgBox "Backup copy saved as: " & fileSaveName End If End Sub
I want to have a user press a button on a worksheet page to save a copy of the workbook (and be able to name it and choose where to save it to) without closing or modifying the original. Note that if you "save as" manually it renames the workbook and closes the original.
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.
I have some code written to duplicate a template and rename the copy to "Working Copy".
But if I run the code more than once, it breaks as VBA tries to overwrite the sheet with the same name.
Would I would like is for the macro to check to see it already exists and duplicate the copy with some type of incremental integer. Thus the first duplicate would be Working Copy 1, and if the macro is run again, the duplicated copy would be Working Copy 2, etc.
here is what I have so far:
Sub SCButton() Dim i As Integer 'for making Working Copy 1, 2, etc.
Sheets("SCTemplate").Select 'this file will eventually be hidden and thus the user with only see the wokring copies. Sheets("SCTemplate").Copy After:=Sheets(4) Sheets("SCTemplate (2)").Select 'some sort of If statement here to check for the sheets
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.
I've got a workbook that I want to keep intact in a central location on our local network, to make it easier for everybody to access, but don't want people to be able to save changes to the master workbook itself. I'd like to be able to disable the 'Save' feature while still allowing 'SaveAs'. The following code (installed in ThisWorkbook) results in the OPPOSITE of what I'm trying to accomplish (i.e., it allows 'Save' but disables 'SaveAs'):
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
If SaveUI Then MsgBox "The 'Save' function for this workbook has " & Chr(10) & "been disabled. Please use 'Save As'.", vbOKOnly + vbInformation, "Save Disabled" Cancel = True End If
Obviously I'd also like to check the filename they're performing the 'SaveAs' under and disallow it if it matches the master filename.
I've thought about making the workbook into a template, which would sort of accomplish the same thing, but it would be much easier to just keep it as a workbook.
I have an Excel Worksheet (let's call it "AA.xlsm") which uses VBA code to loop through column A, update column B with some results/values, and then (for each value in column A) SaveAs the worksheet into a different filename/path as a ".csv" type file.
My line of code for the SaveAs is as follows: Workbooks("AA.xlsm").SaveAs LEpath & CurrFldr, FileFormat:=xlCSV
My problem is that my original worksheet, AA.xlsm, gets closed whereas I need it to stay open/active after each SaveAs iteration.
I don't believe this is possible but I've been wrong before.. Is it at all possible to Kill the current workbook using VBA? I " saved as" in another location and do not wish to keep the current workbook.
I have a Workbook containing seven or eight Worksheets. The first Worksheet is a data entry and options selection sheet displaying a selection of Textboxes, Option buttons, Combo boxes etc, the second sheet contains reference data, following these are a number of Worksheets that are calculated and filtered as a result of those options and inputs. A 'print' button on the input Worksheet then runs a Procedure that applies the relevant filters, assigns print areas and prints out the 4 or 5 filtered worksheets. I now want to expand this Procedure to take a copy of just these filtered Worksheets and save them as another Workbook (values only) for subsequent free editting.
I have started by selecting the relevant cells on the first filtered Worksheet, copying, opening a new Workbook, renaming the first Worksheet to match the one I'm copying, PasteSpecial formats, PasteSpecial the values, go back to the original Workbook, select the relevant cells on the next Worksheet, copying, opening the new Workbook, renaming the Worksheet etc etc. Now this seems to be a very labour intensive approach and I'm wondering if there is an easier way and how to do it. Ideally something like... taking a copy of the whole Workbook somehow changing all the cells to values only, rather than formulars then deleting the first two Worksheets (input and data ones).
I have a csv .txt file that I am importing into Excel, and then creating a pivot-table from that data. This results in 2 tabs within my workbook, pivot-table and data. Using the following code does everything I want it to, but when I re-open the saved .xls file I only have the pivot-table sheet. I'm specifying to save the full workbook, aren't I?!?
Sub format_bgas_flowtracer() Dim v_excel As Excel.Application Dim v_worksheet As Worksheet Set v_excel = CreateObject("Excel.Application") On Error Resume Next Kill "c:oh_for_gods_sake_JUST_WORK_YOU_STUPID_SODDING_THING.xls" On Error Goto 0 v_excel.Workbooks.OpenText FileName:="D:gas_flowtracker_out.txt", Origin:=xlWindows, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, _ ...............
I have a workbook that has worksheet called "Data". In that workbook, there is some codes for the event of "workbook_beforeprint". My question is whether i could create a copy of the "master" workbook and delete all the unwanted sheets but "Data" sheet using VBA. There are some codes of creating a new workbook but i suppose i need to the exact copy of the current workbook using VB
I need VBA code for the following - I have a worksheet with seven colums of data (A to G) - I need to copy the first column (A) from the active worksheet then open master workbook called 'master' and paste the data in to column D - then save the 'master' as the name in cell Z1 of the 'master' workbook. Once this has been been completed I need to repeat the process but this time copying column (B) and so on.
I have figured out how to save the workbook using a variable to saveas but I would like to create a new folder to place the new workbook into. I have tried a few things a am not having any luck. I recorded a macro and the code it produced is as follows.
I'm trying to find a way to save a single sheet of an excel workbook and in the same process delete all vba code and shapes from the new single sheet workbook. I was looking around and found this code which does save only the single sheet to a new one sheet workbook but doesn't delete the vba and shape that I have used to assign macros to in the original.
Code: Sub SaveSheetAsNewBook() Dim wb As Workbook Dim InitFileName As String Dim fileSaveName As String Dim wshape As Shape InitFileName = ThisWorkbook.Path & Format(Date, "mm.dd.yy")
I have a workbook that is located in a folder and i need to copy this folder into multi locations, i need a save as macro that will save the workbook back to the same folder location it was opened from, i have got the workbook file name that i wish to use in N6 of the workshee
have a basic knowledge of VBA. The task I am trying to perform with VBA is to
1. Copy from sheet1 A1 to sheet2 E9 2. Copy from sheet1 B1 to sheet2 E11 3. Save sheet2 in a new workbook file with the file name cell data from sheet1 A1 (511894.xls) 4. Copy from sheet1 A2 to sheet2 E9 5. Copy from sheet1 B2 to sheet2 E11 6. Save sheet2 in a new workbook file with the file name cell data from sheet1 A2 (097219.xls) 7. Repeat the process down columns A and B to the end of the columns. 8. Columns A and B will end at the same time but the data and the last cell will change with each scan added to the columns.
This code will accomplish this task with a single column of data but not two columns. Also column B will have a mixture of numbers and letters in its cells, Column A is only numbers.
VB: Sub MoveData() sName = "temp" Const csPath As String = "C:Documents and SettingsmcgaulcDesktopTestFile" 'MyName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
Here are some images of the data sheet and the saved sheet
Sheet1.jpg Sheet2.jpg Note: sheet2 in image is "temp" sheet in code
A simple one for you, but again my Google skills seem lacking. This must be common practice but until one knows the key combination...
I have created a summary sheet with lots of formulas which analyse other sheets in a workbook. I want to copy this summary sheet to a seperate workbook to use as a template.
Of course, the copying process always links the new (template) sheet to the original workbook it was copied from. How does one copy without forging this link? All I want are the formulas copied across totally unchanged; I really *don't* want to manually edit 50 or so formulas!
At my work we are using Excel as a CMS to produce SQL scripts for insertion into a database. The data is then turned into mobile web pages. This involves multiple workbooks - 1 for each main page with the sub-pages as extra worksheets in the book.
Much of the data is duplicated so we have created master workbooks then copied them and laboriously referenced the relevant cells back to the original. That way if any data in the master is changed, all copies will change simultaneously.
This is obviously not the most efficient way of publishing web pages but we are stuck with it for now. So I am wondering if it is possible to write a VBA code to create a copy of the master and then reference all required tables in the worksheets automatically? The tables are all named ranges.
I have a summary workbook that I want to save into different folders designated by the input from my userform. My directory has folders named: "A051 - Watson", "A052 - Gila Bend", "A065 - Tompkins"... etc; but I want to designate which folder to put the summary workbook in by the first 4 characters in the folder names(A051,A056,A055...etc) Let me know if I made it clear enough.
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 recorded a macro to save a workbook to a specific folder using the current file name. However, I've tried to remove the absolute reference to a specific filename but it is not working for me. Am I close?
