Select A File And Get Full Path

Jan 10, 2014

I'm wondering what is the syntax to open a msoFileDialog box and select a file, resulting in setting a variable to the entire file path. If I use

msoFileDialogFilePicker

I'll only get the file name, without the path. I'd like to get the full path ending in the file name.

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only

Sep 27, 2006

I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...

I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...

How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...

An example of "DestFile" might be;
S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls
(the file name length may vary)
What code can I use to consistently trim it back to;
S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction
as the "DestFldr" variable?

List Files/Workbooks With Full Path & File Name

Sep 6, 2006

I do a search on my directory for all *.xls files each month which produces a list some 11,000+ lines long. Attached is a very small sample.

I then import this into Excel see tab Raw Data

What I want to produce is a list shown on tab Finished Data, so that I can then sort etc.

Has someone already done this before and got the code, or can someone point me in the right direction on how to arrive at the finished data?

Show Full File Path Ignoring Drive Letter

May 2, 2014

I am trying to allow users to select a file, and then the file name/ the file path / and date are added.

Right now, all those functions work in the following code, but the file path shows up as a letter drive. As there could be upwards of 50 people using this file and the mapped drive could be different, i wanted the full path to be displayed.

Code:
Private Sub File_1_overwrite_Click()

Dim filename As Variant
Dim filename1 As Variant

filename = Application.GetOpenFilename(, , "Select Programme")
filename1 = filename
filename1 = Mid(filename, InStrRev(filename, "") + 1)
File_1_link = filename
file_1_name = filename1
File_1_date = Format(Date, "MM/DD/YY")

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.

Excel 2010 :: Searching A Folder For A Keyword And Returning The Full Path?

Jun 19, 2013

My Excel 2010 spreadsheet contains client data like the below:

A
B
C
D
E

What I'm trying to get from this is a personally addressed email with 2 attachments, one will be standard to all recipients and one will be unique and specific to that recipient. The filename of the unique attachment will contain the reference but will have some other stuff in the filename as well on either side that I will not be able to remove.

In terms of the file locations the unique ones will be in subfolders of the folder holding this workbook and the generic one will be in the same folder as the this workbook.This is some adapted code that solved a similar problem (in Excel 2007 though) on a different website.

VB:
Sub Mail_Report()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object [code]....

In that case the file started with the "reference" field but in my case it is in the middle and the formats vary depending on the provider, there will only be a maximum of 5 providers but I would like to avoid 5 different macros if at all possible so I need a search function of some sort.

Save File As Text Using Cells For Path & File Name

Dec 20, 2009

How to save a file, with file- name. but the directory is to be read in worksheet "towns" in Cell1 (brussels) and filename in worksheet "names" in cell B2 (i.e. winter), so it saves to c:russelswinter.txt as a wordpad or kladblok txt file, that keeps a number, so each time we push a button "go back from worksheet names to worksheet towns" the "number" that is saved in the txt document goes up by value +1. In Flemisch, the "old" code goes as follows, and saves the number in the txt file Factuurnummer7.txt. But I want that the file name (here: FactuurNummer7) can be a variable text issue, which has to be read - as already noticed - in cell B2 (with the word WINTER). So the are 2 worksheets: towns, ans names

pad$ = Application.DefaultFilePath
'controle = Dir(pad$ + "FactuurNummer7.txt")
'If controle = "" Then GoTo EerstAanmaken
'Open pad$ + "Factuurnummer7.txt" For Input As #10
'Input #10, Nummer1
'Close #10......................

User Input For File & Path For File Copy

Jan 26, 2008

Below is the current code I have for File Copy before the workbook closes. This file will be distributed all over and obviously will not have the same old path and new path locations as I have in my code also will not have the same file name. Is there anyway to still perform the file copy without knowing the old path and file name and possibly have message box pop up to ask the copy to location and use that in the new path string?

Sub Macro1()
Dim fs As Object
Dim oldPath As String, newPath As String
oldPath = "I:EXLDATAMC Daily" '<---Where the file is currently located
newPath = "H:South RegionOrlando Mail Services2008DI" 'Since the super shared drive is super slow we will just copy and replace this file each time before we close and of course after we save
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.CopyFile oldPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls", newPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls"
Set fs = Nothing
End Sub

File Download Without Knowing The Full Url (only Indirect Url Available)

Aug 13, 2008

have a link such as www.abc.se/downloadfile?file=12345. When opening this link in a browser the DownloadFile window popups and the file can be downloaded.

I would like to be able to download the file without involving the DownloadFile pop up (since some users have auto open enabled thus the downloadfile pop-up is not always shown)

I have tried URLDownloadToCacheFile and similiar methods but they fail as they dont have the direct link to the file.

So my question now is how can I extract the direct url?

There should be a way to capture it since it will be used in the downloadfile dialog.

Get Full Address Of External File By Specifying Filename And Then Evaluate

Jan 9, 2014

I'm really looking for a way to get the full address of the external file by specifying the file name in a cell and then evaluate the formula. For example,

[Code] .....

is the full address of the source file called 'Source'. My idea is: if I just type the file name 'Source' in a workbook's cell $A$1, and in cell $B$1 I want to make the formula something like:

="C:Users["&$A$1&".xlsx]Sheet1'!$F$1"

This will make my project very impressive with this feature: a user just types the file name to establish the link and evaluate the formula for results.

Separate File Name From File Path

Jun 12, 2008

I am trying to separate a filename from a filepath in Excel VBA 2003.

I am using the Application. GetOpenFilename command to get the user to select the correct file.
However, this also seems to record the filepath.

I am trying to separate the filename out of this so that each file( name) activates a different sub procedure.
I am storing the result of the getopenfilename as a Variant.

At the moment I am having to specify the full path in order to get each sub to run. This is fine for 1 user - but not for others as the files are stored in different locations for each user.

Get Rid Of Path In File Name

Apr 26, 2007

How can I get the name of a workbook WITHOUT the path when I have the name WITH the path?

To be more specific. When I use "Application. GetOpenFilename" the result is a file name for say "my_book" including the path. With this I can open the file using "Workbooks.Open" and Excel will show me "my_book". But when I want to reference this workbook later on in say "Workbooks(my_book)", then I need the file name without the path. How can I get that one in VBA?

Till now I was using "CurDir" to find out the path after opening the file and just subtracted it from the full file name. This seamed to be fine. But now I had a situation where CurDir gave me a path with abbreviations (~),

Pull Data For A Discrete Month Into A Grid From A Source File Containing A Full Year

Feb 14, 2013

I'm trying to streamline some processes at work and have encountered a bit of an issue.

I have a source file containing a grid of data (9 columns) with a series of dates they relate to down the left side e.g. 13-Feb-2013. This data covers a whole year.

What I want to do is pull through data relating to a discrete month into a grid in a seperate workbook.

I have a feeling that date ranges and possibly some kind of lookup might be useful but am struggling to see how to pull it all together.
