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?

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.

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")

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

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.

I'm using this code to import a file, but I want to be able to save just the path (with no file name) to a variable to use for the output file. This code saves the path and file.

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 (~),

Relative File Path VBA?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a WinForm, which I'm calling via VBA's Shell command:

Code:
Sub Button1_Click()
Shell "C:TemplateFuncitons.exe " + ActiveWorkbook.FullName, 1
End Sub

I made this module an Excel Add-in and added it as a button in the quick access toolbar. Now, the idea is for the WinForm.exe and the Excel.xla to always be in the same directory (go hand in hand). I want to make a relative path for the .exe which will be the path to the folder where the .xla is + the string "TemplateFunctions.exe" in the end.

Extract File Name From Path

Jan 10, 2008

I am having trouble with a macro of mine. Essentially it opens a file, based on user input (Full path is stored in variable FilePath), but then I want to select that workbook, and therefore need just the .xls filename. I figured I would create a new variable, FileName, to pull out the filename.

How can I edit the string in my macro to extract just the filename.xls from the full path?

Return File Path

Dec 2, 2008

I have a UserForm with a button that, when clicked, opens up a File Directory Browser that the user can select the file of their choice.

The code is below :

Private Sub DirectoryBrowser_Click()
Dim fn
fn = Application.GetOpenFilename 'can add parameters. See help for details.
If fn = False Then
MsgBox "Nothing Chosen"
Else
MsgBox "You chose " & fn
'now that you have the name, you can open it or do something else
End If
Workbooks.Open fn
End Sub

What I would like is the filepath (of the file they choose) to appear as the displayed caption on another button or label.

File/Path Error

Nov 19, 2009

We have built quite a large Excel based program that contains quite a lot of coding. the program seems to work fine the majority of the time but every so often we recieve an error message that causes excel to not save, or to crash and shut down.

The message that comes up is "File/Path Error"

Now I've just done some hunting around online and some links I have found speak of declairing the document location correctly in the coding. I was wondering could this be the issue at hand?

Anytime the document needs to save, there is a cell with the directory path and file path declared as a variable (Actually as Dim String) within the coding. Is this the best way to declare a file path?

Also, the problem seems intermittent. We Compile the VBA coding before saving, we also use a Clean Project add-in within Excel. These processes usually help but every so often the problem comes back.

Find File Path To USB Drive

Jun 12, 2009

I have a file which is kept on the C Drive. Each day, a different excel file is downloaded to a usb memory stick. The first file reads data from this file. The problem is, the drive letter keeps changing from E to F and the macro then crashes out.

The file on the memory stick always has the same name, so is there a macro to find the drive letter of this file and then use it in my existing macro?

How To Make File Path Independent

Dec 29, 2011

How can I make the files path independent. Lets say I have 6 workbooks, one of them having macro that connects all the six books. While working on my pc, I entered the file locations by myself. The macro runs fine.

Now I have to send the files to someone and would not like them to add their download directory at most places in the code. I want that after downloading, they have to only open the main file and press the button to run macro. How should I do that.

Right now am using this approach:-

sub main{
str 1file;
set 1file = Workbooks.Open ("c:/downloads...../1stfile.xls")

and similar code for calling other files.
