Schedule Macros To Run While Workbook Is Closed

Apr 14, 2007

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?

Run VBA On Schedule When Workbook Closed And User Logged Off

Feb 12, 2014

I've been tasked at work to make an excel file to do more than what I think I can figure out on my own. What I need done is this:

1. Every Monday, check excel file for data
2. If data exists, send email with said data

Here's my issues:

How do I get the workbook to open while logged off the computer? The file is stored on a share network drive, not locally. How do I get it to send an email without someone logged on to click "send"?

I tried using windows scheduler, but I don't have sufficient privileges to run as batch (IT restrictions).

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

Feb 6, 2013

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)

Pull Value From Closed Workbook Where Workbook Name Is In A Cell

Nov 24, 2007

I want to open an excel file whose name is a value in a spreadsheet, and then pull a value from the spreadsheet I queried into my existing workbook. Here is the syntax i have so far:

to note: I'm calling the workbook in which the macro is located testproject.xls, and I'm using [integer].xls as my list of files that the macro will query. Ultimately, this code will go in a loop.

Set currentCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")
varCellvalue = currentCell.value
Workbooks.Open "path_of_file" & varCellvalue & ".xls"
Windows("testproject.xls").Activate
currentCell.Offset.(0,1).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=[3.xls]Sheet1!R1C1"

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.

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
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity

Pull From Closed Workbook

Feb 10, 2008

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”.

Closed Workbook Still Showing In VBE

Feb 19, 2008

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...
