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?
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
I just found a code to copy file path and file contents. However it is copying folder path and folder contents.here is my requirement.I will specify a path, macro has to copy that file name in a particular cell, then it has to copy all its contents. ex:
file name 1 has 3 sub files in it, file name 2 has 2 sub files in it--
i try to write a code to pop up input box with browse button to select the file path the code without browse button is workin corectly
Private Sub CommandButton3_Click() Dim N As Integer Dim Fname As String Fname = InputBox("Please enter the file name and path to save the output", "enter file name") Sheets( Array(Sheet2.Name, Sheet3.Name)).Copy ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=Fname ActiveWorkbook.Close End Sub
Need to add browse button to make it easier than writting the file path
Does VBA support any type of "browse for file" interface? I'm thinking something similar to an inputbox, but instead it gives you the standard looking windows explorer window to find a file (think adding an attachment in outlook). The function would return a string.
I want to do is prompt the user for an Excel file and then insert it as a new worksheet as sheet 2. Also, if possible I would like the imported file to insert to the right of sheet 1. Anyone know how to do this or at least know some parts of this problem.
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?
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......................
I am using this code for 2nd coping my file and rename it automatically......
I want when i want another copy always my path should be "C: estabc.xlsm" and For new file in same path "C: estdef.xlsm" an input box ask for the name("def.xlsm") "what new name u want for this new file".
I have got a master workbook and I have written macro to copy and paste data on another workbook. write a macro to save the new workbook to a file path with a file name where both file name and path are stored in master workbook sheet...
I have a workbook were a user will write down some info. Then I need to copy that data to a second workbook located anywere in the Hard drive. i used the function "GetOpenFilename" or the "Application.dialogs(xlopenfile) to ask the user where is the file (and open it). Now I need to get the name of that file. How can I get it?(the name of the file the user selected to open). P.S. I saw there is somewhere a "Print" function to copy data from a workbook to another closed workbook. I was planning to have both workbooks open and then just use several lines like:
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 (~),
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.
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?
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.
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.
