After copying a message box should appear stating copy finished.

Macro To Select All Worksheet And Save File As File Name?

Mar 6, 2012

I want to create a macro that will select all the worksheets (names and quantity will vary) and saves the file as the current file's name but in PDF. Since I only know how to record a macro it specifies the worksheet names but I need it for various workbooks. The name will vary plus the number of tabs can go anywhere from 3 to 40.

Select File By File Date

May 9, 2006

I have moved this query to a seperate post because the other was becoming a bit bogged down.

This code supplied by RichieUK works perfectly until the month changes then it goes wrong. I have run the macro for every day of May up to the 3rd June using dummy files and then it goes wrong -

When I get to the 3rd June dsecondlatest which should pick up either yesterdays or (last fridays file if yesterday was a Sunday) picks up the file for the 1st June instead of the 2nd June.

dlatestdate still works properly and gives the filename for the 3rd June.

Sub New_Coupon_Count_Update4()
' Find Source Data File
Const strFirstName As String = "Ru0230_"
Const strSecondName As String = "J:DAILY_COUPON_COUNT_2006COUPON06.xls"
Dim strFName As String, wbk As Workbook
Dim strDate As String, strDay As String, strMth As String, strYear As String
Dim dDate As Date, dLatestDate As Date, dSecondLatest As Date
Dim bFirst As Boolean
Dim vaFileName As Variant
Dim daysdif As String
Dim dLesResp
Dim dTodResp
Dim Ro As Long
Dim Col As Integer
Dim DataRows
Dim DataRows1
Dim DataRows2
Dim DataCols1

The rest of the macro after this point works perfectly.

User Select File To Open

Oct 17, 2011

I am writing code that requires data from another workbook. Instead of hardcoding the directory and filename (which changes daily), how can I have the code prompt the user to do this for me?

I want to open the file with:

links updated

Also, is there a way to have an initial directory that appears so the user need not go through a dozen directories every time to get to the file?

Select File, Specific Tab, Then Copy/paste

Feb 13, 2010

Feedback.xls is the file I want to have my macro run in. By pushing a button to run the macro, it will prompt the user to select where their file is on their computer. This file will have different file names based on the end user. For example sake, I've included CAP.xls.

After the user selects their file, it will prompt them to choose which tab to copy and paste data from. Typically, there will be 30+ tabs on their worksheet. For example sake, I've created 5 tabs on CAP.xls. The tabs in their workbook will be labeled as I have labeled mine, M1 CAP, M2 CAP & M3 CAP. Therefore, it should prompt the user to select which tab to choose from.

After the user selects their tab (M1 CAP, M2 CAP, M3 CAP), the macro should prompt the user to choose which row of information to copy. In CAP.xls, I have a few rows of information to choose from. They all start with FY10A1, FY10A2, FY10A3, but this information could change. Once they select the row, it will copy each of those fields onto the respectively labeled fields on Feedback.xls.

Select And Import Delimited Data File (ERA)

Feb 27, 2012

I need to summarize some data from multiple files but I can't seem to have the user select the file and import it.

It's a ERA(electronic remittance advice) 835 file that will import with the "Import Text File" routine. I've added the "GetOpenFileName" to it but apparently have not appropriately adjusted my "QueryTable.Add" routine.

I removed the .Refresh Backgroundquery:=False line as this was causing an error and this not SQL data.

The desired files have names like this: C123456.835.EDIPROCESSERPROCEEDED

My simpleton code reads:

Sub IMPORT_835()
' IMPORT_835 Macro
Dim InputFile As Variant

InputFile = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Choose your file", _
FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*")

[Code] ........

No data is imported, Why?

Prompt To Select File/path And Store As Variable

Jan 29, 2009

I am looking for macro that when run, will open a file explorer window and prompt the user to select a folder and file where they have data stored. Then I need it to be stored as a variable and used as a part of a "Workbook.Open Filename" command.

The reason for this is that, I have a huge formatting marco stored within a workbook. When a user extracts a report from SAP, I want the workbook to grab the file that is extracted, open it and import all of the data in order to be formatted.

Is It Possible For A User To Select A File And Cell To Paste In During A Macro

Sep 3, 2008

I was planning to do was have a macro where the document opened and the cell that information was pasted in was decided depending on which cell was selected when the macro was run.

This worked fine, but it does mean that it needs someone who can edit the VBscript every time there is a new starter or someone leaves so isn't really viable.

What I was wondering, is if it is possible for me to start a macro, which then drags in the information I need from a text file, does all the calculations and rearranging, and then brings up a prompt for the user to open the document they want to paste it in, click on the cell where the pasting will start, and then the macro continues from there?

To try to explain it in as clear a way as I can. Say we have three managers, Alan, Brenda and Charlie. In Alan's team there are 10 staff members. Aaron, Bill etc.etc. If we have just run the report for Aaron, the macro will run, automatically drag all the information in and rearrange it, then it will pause while the user opens up the "Alan" spreadsheet, they select the "Aaron" first cell, click OK or something, and then the macro continues on its happy way?

Select / Open File Based On Today Date In Sheet Name

Sep 15, 2014

I managed to create some code that will connect to a workbook and take the data from there.

It is kind of SQL mixed with VBA. I just got this by finding it in google (I don't have the link handy now).

What the file does, is it will take 2 columns from a workbook called "Test.xls" and then take out 2 columns "Name" and "ID".

The only thing is, this is only a test and not the actual files I need to open. the files are always saved on the same folder, but the name is the day of the export of it. So when I export a file today, it will get 2014.09.10.xls. The sheet (only 1) will also get that name.

How could I change the below code that it will take that file based on today's date and read from the sheet with today's data?

Sub sbADO()
Dim sSQLQry As String
Dim ReturnArray
Dim Conn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim mrs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim DBPath As String, sconnect As String
'DBPath = ThisWorkbook.FullName

[Code] ....

Loop Through Rows With VBA And Select Output File With Selectable Dates

Apr 9, 2014

I have developed a user form in VBA which is used for entry into an excel worksheet. From this data, I need to do the following:

1) Create 2 output files for Job data entitled "J" and another file entitled "S". The "J" and "S" is captured in a field in the data. I need to hit a button that allows these 2 output files to be produced, so I need to 'loop' through rows of the data to do this/

2) In addition to 1), the user needs to be able to 'select' the date range they would like to see 'J' and 'S' data over. This will be based on a field called "Startdate'. How could I do this with the button above-can I parse an input value to a form and select the 'J' and 'S' files on this.

Excel 2010 :: How To Find And Select (not Open) A File In Explorer Using VBA

Dec 11, 2013

Two months ago our employer seriously limited the size of our mailboxes. We are "forced" to store emails as msg files on our network. PST archives are not allowed. This naturally sucks, as in Explorer you only have the file names and dates to look for that one particular email amongst hundreds (thousands) of msg files. I was able to compose a program in Excel 2010 that generates a list of msg files from a selected folder, together with metadata (sender, receiver, etc.) and so on.

In a test the program worked fine with 6,710 msg files I could post the code here, but the comments and many of the variable names are in Dutch (I never expected it to work in the first place). There is one thing I would like to add to the program. Sometimes I want to add an email to a new email as an attachment. Nowadays I have to look for the right msg file in Explorer by hand, which is a pitty, because I have the paths and filenames in my worksheet. I can put that in a string variable and let VBA do the looking up.

But I don't know how. I would like to be able to let VBA look for the file in Explorer, select it and then stop. I could then drag and drop the selected msg file in my new email. But all my attempts to find example code end up with code that enables a user to select a file and immediately open it. That is one step too far for me. If the msg file is opened, I cannot add it to a new email as an attachment anymore.

Automatically Select Most Latest File Name From Similar Names Ending With Dates

May 25, 2014

I need to use the VLOOKUP feature from the most latest files, I am using VLOOKUP in VBA code which is working fine, however the problem is that the files from where I do VLOOKUP are added randomly in a week.


There are 2 Files, 1st File where the data would be looked up from the 2nd File, Now the 2nd File has names like this "Offline Data as on 10th May 14", "Offline Data as on 13th May 14", "Offline Data as on 23rd May 14", etc.

Now these files are send by another department, and each time the most recent data has to be searched from these files.. All of these files have to be maintained separately for record purposes.

Hence in the VLOOKUP, Lookup file keeps on is it possible to make a code in such a way that the code picks up the most recent file for reference, from the above example we would need to pull the data from the most latest file which is "Offline Data as on 23rd May 14" , if any other file is added in that folder more recent than the one mentioned than the code should automatically link it to that file.

I have managed to codify the lookup but due to this filenames being changed always I have to do this this has to be done at several columns in several sheets its extremely time-consuming.

So, logic code to pick the most recent date which is embedded in the filename...

Import Text Dialogue/Wizard: Select File Once For Multiple Queries

Aug 7, 2006

I am importing a text file that has a lot more than 256 columns. The data will be updated weekly with a different text file. I know how to get past the 256 column limit when importing a text file like this. This link explains the method I am using to import the text file. [url] Since I am importing onto several sheets I get the dialogue box asking me to choose a file to import from for every sheet when I use RefreshAll. The same file that is used by the first sheet will be used by the rest of the sheets. Each sheet just imports a different section of columns from the text file. I want to avoid choosing the same file 30 plus times (once for each sheet) when I click refresh all. Is there a code that would allow me to choose the file for the first sheet, and the other sheets would follow suite?

Fill Multi Select ListBox With File Paths & Open Selected Files

Nov 26, 2008

i'm having a problem with a script I have (script is below). What i'm doing is running a script that displays files in a certain folder, those files are then displayed on sheet1 column O and are linked so when they are clicked upon, the file will open. I also have a combo box with a input range of $O$O. That puts the values in column O in the combo box. Now here is a problem and request.

Problem first, when I select the file names from the combo box, they don't open the file, all it does is display the file name in combo box and that's it. how to I get it to open up the file? Now for a request, I have another sheet that is almost exactly as the one i described above. The only thing different I want is when someone clicks on a file name from the combo box, instead of it automatically linking to the file, I want them to click on a button to display the file.

Sub HyperlinkXLSFiles()
Dim lCount As Long
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.EnableEvents = False
On Error Resume Next
With Application.FileSearch
'Change path to suit
.LookIn = "c:Sec"
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
' .Filename = " Book*.xls"..................

If Select Sheet, Select Range Statement

Oct 4, 2007

I have a command button on sheet MASTER. When the workbook is Activated I want it to check and see if in sheet COSTM, cell B3 there are the words "Project Number", if so then show command button (ClearPrevious), if not, don't show. Also, when the If statement is finished, then the workbook needs to end up showing the sheet MASTER. I have tried various codes and none work, or they are on perpetual loops. I know this has got to be simple, but cannot find an example to take from to solve the issue. Would appreciate any help offered. Below is code I have right now.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
If Sheets("COSTM").Select Range("B3").Select = "Project Name:" Then
Me.ClearPrevious.Visible = True
Me.ClearPrevious.Visible = False
End If
End Sub
