I've created one file, that acts as a launching file. It does several things, including environment validation, and downloading new files from a web repository, etc... Once it has done everything it needs to do, it launches a 2nd file (the main user input file - which is tied to an external DB), fires the start-up routine in that 2nd file, then quietly gets out of the way.
This all works perfectly, unless the 2nd file gets closed before the start-up routine is finished. (this could happen for several reasons, including invalid login credentials). I've oversimplified the issue below: ...
This is a follow-on to a great solution provided by Shg and Rylo. Here is the link. http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...new-sheet.html
My users have run in to an interesting issue with the file. Each time the files opens it has the same 5 questions selected. What I need the code to do is randomize the questions each time the sheet is opened. Basically, the users seem to have a problem using the "make quiz" button, so they have requested that I make sure that the quiz randomizes each time it is opened.
I have written a macro to loop through files and subfolders to open a specific file for a specific month. I extract the datasets for every excel file into a master template. The code works flawlessly when all of the files have the .xlsm extension. However, I need to open .xls file formats also. When my code opens the first .xls file, named "Staffing Plan.xls" it opens it and automatically makes it "Staffing Plan1 [Compatibility Mode]. I can't open the file in the original "Staffing Plan.xls" file format to read data from. How can I fix this?
I have the following code saving a copy of a spreadsheet as a backup every 30 minutes. The problem is the save code is running as soon as the file is opened. I want to save only after the file has been open for 30 minutes. The way it is now if I open the sheet up and something is wron the backup has already been overwritten by the messed up sheet. Will someone please let me know what needs changed to eliminate the inital running of the code?
Sub do_something() sec = 1800 when = Now + sec / 60 / 60 / 24 Application.OnTime when, "do_something" Application.DisplayAlerts = False ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs "S:QUALITYTest Results Spread SheetBackup of Riser MezRiser Mez backup.xls" Application.DisplayAlerts = True End Sub
I am trying exactly the same things stated in here Open two workbooks at the same time as stated in the other thread's answer I would love to "just use the Workbook name IF both Workbooks are in the same folder." both files are in the same folder and this is the code that I am trying to use
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Workbooks.Open ("toto1234.xls")
and it does not work any one explain me what I am doing wrong?
A client has sent me an Excel workbook that appears on the screen with the message adivising that it is Protected View as a result of having been downloaded from the internet. If I click on the Enable Editing button the workbook is completely deactivated. I have played around with my Trust Centre settings but nothing seems to work.
When I open any saved Excel file the saved file opens along with a blank workbook titled "Book 1". How can I make it so when I open any saved Excel file it only opens the file I want and not a new workbook every time?
Is it possible to set the default page to open when clicking the file button? In particular, I use the recents feature a lot but never have I looked at the information on the information page. Everytime I click the file button I have to then select recents which is annoying.
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.
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 ChDir "J:\_RU_REPORTSMARKETING" Const strMyDir As String = "J:\_RU_REPORTSMARKETINGCOUPON COUNT CSV" 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.
I want to copy Sheet1 and Sheet2 from one workbook to another. (Let us assume abc.xls and def.xls)
I have created a command button in def.xls and When I click the command button from workbook def.xls a popup window should open asking me to select file. Once I locate the file it should start copying.
After copying a message box should appear stating copy finished.
I have a macro, it imports data from a text file and separates the data from the text file into columns. My issue is that it automatically picks a fixed filename. I would want to manually select a filename from different directories.
Select Case True Case True If wbEXT = "C:KPI 0015 external Shortageswk" & CStr(VBAWeekNum(Now(), 1)) >= 0 And _ wbINT = "C:KPI 0044 internal Shortageswk" & CStr(VBAWeekNum(Now(), 1)) >= 0 Then Case False varAnswer = MsgBox("KPI Current week No missing", vbOK, "Warning") If varAnswer = vbOK Then Exit Sub End If End If End Select
rest of code here
basically if current week files exist carry on , if they dont then pull up a msgbox with ok button to stop sub
i would like to use the application.getopenfilename to select multiple files, then with these file's would like to be able to use them to create a email with these files as the attachment. then move the files to a new location and delete the originals.
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.
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 (*.*), *.*")
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.
I've got folder of 44 files - all copies of each other apart from the data entered in the cells - which have 7 worksheets in them all named differently (Each one is a different day of the week - this is the work of someone else that I have to work on !).
I want to copy the data in the columns A-R of each worksheet from row 2 to the last one with data in column M into a single file so that I can then then work on all that data in a single file..
