I'm trying to look at options for scheduling macros to run at a particular time. Ideally I would like to run one at 3:00 am during every week night. From what I've looked into, I can run the OnTime procedure and it could schedule this to run each night. Does anyone know if this is correct, and if there are any other options avaliable to me?
Also, does anyone know if this can run automatically if Excel is closed, or does Excel have to be open? Does the workbook have to be open?
Is there code that will take certain data from one Excel sheet to another named file in a different place on the network? Example Copy cell aa47 from "Recent Faxes.xls" that sits in "correspondence" folder. Then paste into cell B25 "Current Documentation.xls" in the "Sales Contacts" folder
Is there anyway I can schedule an excel workbook to open up at a certain time; I have some code attached to the Workbook Open function; so when the workbook is opened the code will run; but I need the workbook to automatically open at say 17:00 everyday so the code can run.
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
I have an open workbook (A) and this is where the code should reside. I want to use VBA to copy the content of an entire worksheet from a closed workbook (B) to an existing worksheet in workbook A. How would you accomplish this?
I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.
However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:
Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.
Heres the code that I have got.
Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)
I am trying to copy the emf image object from "Book1" into the "test" workbook whilst the test workbook is open and Book1 is closed. The code I have put together currently sort of works, I mean that it copies the text data over but does not copy the object which is what I require.
I've got a problem with this code, have been wracking my brains about. Here is the process I am trying to do:
1) Copy a range (a2:av1000) but (ideally) find the last populated row from a closed workbook (with a different password) 2) Create a new workbook and paste this data into it at A2 3) Close all the workbooks but only save the new one.
I'm trying to write a macro that accomplishes the following:
" Book 1" is already open. The user runs a macro that lists all .xls files in directory "d:measurements" The user selects the desired file from the list or box the macro copies from this "book 2" " sheet 3", " range A6:I107 and pastes (values only) into "book 1", "sheet 5", "range A6" End of macro.
I want to accomplish this without opening the selected file (book 2)
The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.
I was wondering if there's any way to sum inside a closed workbook by usin' VBA? I think I figured out how to do it just with formulas, but I was hoping to be able to make like a macro or something to do it, 'cause its kind of time consuming having to go back and forth to all these workbooks.
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.
I am trying to use this code to pull data from a closed workbook. The code will be in workbook Book1 and I will be pulling information from closed workbook Book3. I need to pull data from cells A1:A4 from Book3 and place it into Book1 on Sheet2 in cells A1:A4. I receive an "Subscript out of range error" on this line of code
I have the following formula to extract a specific cell from a closed workbook. It works fine. I want to be able to make the file name refer to a another cell so I can create a spinner to change it. For example:
='C:Documents and SettingsTom Desktoplabor[01_032407.xls]Stats'!A4
Cell A1 would be 01_032407, and I would replace [01_032407] with [A1] but it does not work.
I have the a COUNTIF function used on one workbook which refers to another workbook, however I get the result #value! unless the other workbook is open - this is even if I chose to update links when I fist open the file.
Do all workbooks have to be open when using COUNTIF?
If I open the other workbook after my workbook with the COUNTIFs on has been opened then all #value! errors disappear and the correwct info is shown.
I have a workbook called Book1 that was created from another macro. I am attempting to do a lookup using columns B2 and C2 and look for the same values in columns G6 and J6 from a workbook called Marine Moves..If a match is found copy the value from Column H insert that value into Book1 Column A, if possible I would like the Marine Moves workbook to remain closed during this process.
I have tried to find how to retrieve a worksheet from a closed workbook and I am almost sure that there was an answer how to do this in FAQ but I cannot seem to find it, does anyone know where this thread is?
I wrote here a few days ago about an issue retrieving a closed worksheets values and I got help from RoyUK(see code below and link), but for some reason the values are never entered into the open worksheet.
Retrieving From A Closed Workbook Sub FillingSheet() Dim filetoopen As String Dim wb As Workbook filetoopen = Application _ . GetOpenFilename("XL Files (*.xls), *.xls") On Error Resume Next Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filetoopen, True, True) With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1) . Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value End With wb.Close False Set wb = Nothing End Sub
I have a master file with two sheets. I have another input file with only one sheet. Without opening the input file, is it possible to copy the range and paste special values only into a duplicate sheet in the master?
I have a folder that contains hundreds of excel workbooks. Each workbook has 20 or more sheets. All workbooks have the same look and design. All workbooks have macros that they use to function and the macro I want cannot interfere with their macros.
What I want to do is copy certain cell values (some numeric and some text) from several sheets from these workbooks and paste them into another workbook (a master workbook) that is essentially collecting these values into a table without having to open all these workbooks. For example, let’s say all of the workbooks are named with a numeric value starting with “one.xls” and that the sheets in these workbooks are named “a”, “b”, and so on. So, in the master workbook in cell “B2”, I want the name of the first workbook searched (“one.xls”); then in cell “C2”, I want the value from cell “J45” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “D2”, the value from cell “B32” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “E2”, the value from cell “K13” on sheet “e” of “one.xls”; in cell “F2”, the value from cell “R43” on sheet “k” of “one.xls”. The in cell “B3” of the master workbook, I want the same information as before except from “two.xls” instead of “one.xls”, and so on down to “three hundred.xls”.
I and a colleague are working on some code to automate a web page. We've been able to get it to fill in the needed forms, run a report which comes out in Excel format and save the output to a specified shared drive location.
However, when we attempt to close the resulting window we are unable to...
The webpage creates a new Internet explorer window which we're able to capture and do a wb.saveas, but when we do wb.close, it does not generate an error, but the new window does not close.
In the VBE, the workbook is visible as an object, but in Excel if you go to Windows on the main menu and attempt to select it, it's not listed and the Unhide option is greyed out.
So the object is a member of the workbooks collection for the VBE, but not Excel...
I need to copy several macros from the Personal Macro workbook to a new workbook that I need to take to another computer. I need to be able to run the macros on that computer. I can only record macros and make minor changes in the VB editor. I do not know VB code.
