Start Macro At Workbook Open

Nov 14, 2008

I found an outlook plugin that saves any incoming emails as text. It also has an option to run an exe or bat file on saveing the email to text. I have a macro in a worksheet that will process the email to a database and send out a response.

What I am trying to figure out is how to run the macro in the worksheet whenever an incoming email is saved. So I have the 2 components that I need, I just need to tie them together so that everything is automated.

Does anyone know how to achieve this? Can I use a batch file to open an excel workbook and run a macro? Or can I create a standalone macro (outside of excel) that can open the excel file and run the macro.

Excel 2007 :: Start Timer After Workbook Open For Certain Amount Of Time

Dec 28, 2013

I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.

VB:
Private Sub CBReset_Click()
Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double
T = Timer
Do
E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs
M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60)
S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)

[Code] .....

Macro Start When Data In Another Workbook Changes

Jun 10, 2009

I am brand new to using macro in excel. I have a report that is generated every month (looks like sheet 1) and I use that data to create an analysis report (sheet 2). Each month forecast is replaced by actual for the month that just finished, I have tried to use macro recorder to make this more automated as every month I copy the forecast down and the actuals in and then readjust my totals and add in the now 12th months forecast, but I have had no luck.

MacRO: Check If WorkBook Open. If Not, Open It.

Sep 27, 2006

I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code Im using for tranfering the sheet

Sub Transfer_Sluttet()
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2")
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End If
End Sub

This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it

If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................

Modify Existing Macro To Copy To Different Workbook Instead Of Open Workbook?

Dec 7, 2012

Here's my macro:

Code:
Sub CopyRow()'
'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied.
'
Dim cCell As Range
Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1)
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Rows("2:2").Select

[Code] .....

Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.

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
cost

Open File Macro: Same Directory As Macro Workbook

Nov 17, 2006

I created folder on my desktop to hold various documents. I have master excel document which contains forms and command buttons that open documents from same folder. Is there a way to change code instead of having full file path to specify current directory. I'm worried that if I move this folder to another location then my open file button will not work since location is changed.

Also when I open with command button word document, I have a button on word document to close. I can close document but word application is still active. Can I close word application with the document at the sam time. This is the code I'm using: "ActiveWindow.Close"

Run Macro With More Than 1 Workbook Open

Apr 29, 2009

I currently have a macro set up to run once a workbook is saved/ closed. This works fine unless tehre is more than one workbook open. When I try it with more than 1 different workbook open I get a run error.

My code begins:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)

and then performs the macro. I don't really want to specify the filename as this is liable to change. Is there anyway of adding a "this workbook" command to the text string, and if so where would it go?

LastRow Does Not Seem To Look In The Workbook That The Macro Has Open

Jan 15, 2008

The problem is that LastRow does not seem to look in the workbook that the macro has open, and always returns a value of 1. If I place the sheet that i want to run the macro on, in the workbook that contains the macro there is no problem. What do I need to do to fix this.

LoopCount = Sheets("Dates").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
rng = 2
i = 1
Do
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=7, Criteria1:="=" & Sheets("Dates").Range("A" & rng), Operator:=xlAnd
z = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For y = 2 To z
If Rows(y).Hidden = False Then Exit For
Next y
MsgBox y
MsgBox z
Range("H" & z).Formula = "=Countif($A$" & y & ":$A$" & z & ",A" & z & ")"
Range("H" & z).Copy Destination:=Range("H" & y & ":H" & z)
rng = rng + 1
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = LoopCount

I am looking to check if its open, if it is, then copy the row, if not, then close it.

Macro To Open Workbook With Password

Jul 25, 2007

I have a workbook with the following

Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Occ-Rent-Concess Worksheet").Select
ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="pass"
ActiveSheet.Select
Cells.Locked = True
ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="pass"
pass:
UserName = InputBox("Enter Log On Name to Continue..............................................

This code opens a msgbox that asks for a password and then unlocks certain cells based on what the password is. I have 140 of these workbooks. I need to be able to open them all and change one cell in each file, save it and close. I've gotten the macro written to open, change and save the files, but I am still having to type the 'password' 140 times. Is there a way to bypass it?

Open/Add New Workbook Macro Code

I am trying to write code to open a new (blank) workbook while in an existing workbook (I am then going to pass data between the two which is easy). When I try to record the code to get the syntax for opening a new workbook it will not record any code. I also need to name the new workbook based on text in a cell in the existing workbook. I just saw before posting this that the code;

workbooks.add

will open a new workbook now I just need to name the new workbook based on text in my existing workbook.

Macro To Open / Close / Save Workbook?

Mar 14, 2014

I need to have a workbook (all of them in a folder, ideally) refresh in the middle of the night. The file is large so the refresh takes a full minute. I know I can't auto refresh a closed workbook (pretty sure anyway), and I can't leave the workbook open for various reasons.

So I'm thinking I could have a macro in an open excel (it kicks off on open) that will open a particular workbook elsewhere (the one I need refreshed), open it, refresh it and close/save it. Ideally it would do this for the entire group of workbooks in the folder but I'd be happy to start with just one. I would like to set it to occur every twelve hours (so at midnight, say, this would occur - I would just have to leave the workbook with the macro in it open on a computer so that it runs and completes this task every night).

Script To Run Macro On Workbook Open And Close

Nov 13, 2011

I am relatively new to writing script in excel. I have a 34 sheet workbook that includes inputs, intermediate calculations and then reporting outputs.

I am trying to write macros to do the following

1. On opening - all sheets except a contents page (with macro buttons on it) are hidden
2. One of the macros on this page will unhide all sheets (i.e. a 'developer mode')
3. One of the macros will unhide all relevant input and reporting sheets (i.e. a 'user mode')

I originally set up macros to run on workbook opening that hid all sheets except the contents page and this was working but ran into trouble when I opened up the 'User Mode' saved my changes and exited - the macro didnt work when I went to open again (I think because some of the sheets were visible and some werent and it was trying to hide sheets that were already hidden).

To counter this I set up a macro that made all worksheets visible on workbook closing - this works except I keep getting a 'Save' prompt from excel because the location of selected cells (or the sheet I am viewing) has changed from last opening (not to mention the inputs may change).

I am thinking the best way to fix this as follows:

1. Keep the opening macro the same
2. Keep the user/developer macros the same
3. On closing - develop a macro that unhides all sheets after the user has selected whether or not they have made changes to the sheet in a pop up message box - if they choose yes then they are prompted to save as and then the macro to hide all sheets runs on the new version - if they choose no then they are not prompted to save the document (i.e. next time they open they will be opening back at the contents page with the same inputs they started with in the previous session).

Disable Macro In Workbook Open When Saved

Macro To Open Workbook - In Selected Destination

Oct 9, 2009

I currently have a macro that goes into a specified folder and opens all the files within that folder. This works great for me, but if i have to change the location of the folder i need go into the macro and change the destination code.

I was hoping to let other people use this, but not necessarily people who would be able to go in and manually change the folder location. What i was wondering is if there is a function out there which would pop up a browse box which would allow the user to specify the folder location in which the files are kept? This would mean any user could use the tool to open the files without having to have the spreadsheet setup up on their machine.

Open Workbook Macro With Variable Path

Sep 15, 2006

I am having trouble getting a macro to open a specific file from an open workbook in the same folder based on the current path of the open file. The application is this... I have two files in the same folder. The first is for data entry and it contains a macro button that will open the second which is a template to which the data in the first will be copied. I can easily do this with a fixed path to the second file, however, I would like to be able to move or copy the folder containing these files to other locations or computers without having to change the path each time. I would like to base the path to the second file minus the file name on the first (already open file) path. Assuming that the first file containing the desired macro button is already open, here is one of many of my attempts...

Workbooks.Open " ActiveWorkbook.PathJob Tracker -.xls"

Assuming the second file is the active workbook, I achieved a similar path assignment when saving the file...

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "Application.Path/Jobs Active/" & "Job Tracker -" & Range(" '[Job Tracker -.xls]Specifications'!$A$6").Value

Open Workbook, Run Macro, Save - Automate

Sep 16, 2006

I have 5 Excel files. The first one is Main, and the other 4 are subfiles, namely A1, A2, A3 & A4. I have a need to open Main, then click a button to start a Macro (in Main) which will do the following, sequentially:

1. open A1
2. run a Macro in A1
3. close and save A1.
4. open A2
5. run a Macro in A2
...
12 close and save A4.

The files A1..A4 are a file server and being shared. If they're being used by another user, it cannot be saved - so I would have to skip it and continue with the next A. It would be great if start Excel, open Main, and run the Macro in Main fully automatically.

Make Workbook Open- Open Correct Month Workbook

Jul 8, 2006

I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook

open macro-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim dTime As Date
dTime = Time
If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _
dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then
ImportData
End If
End Sub

This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?
