the spreadsheet needs to be copied to a directory called "C:downloads" as it contains a ODBC query to itself (In reality, this is a query to an External Oracle Database)
On loading, it should pop up a simple userform, with a combo and two command buttons, which when pressed takes you to a (hidden) tab that displays a pivottable.
All works well until I try to close /save when 60% of the time, Excel encounters problems and closes and will not load up the file the next time until either quit excel or disable macros. Messages include "file/path access error", "I/O Error" or get restarts excel.
On a casual run through, I expect you might report back that "All worked ok for me". Please can you give it a bit of a thrashing, comment out the userform show, save the file (frequently) becuase i assure you it will break ultimately!
This is a brand-new file and I've tried it on about 5 different PC running different versions of Excel and generally get the same result.
The attached spreadsheet is as simple as it gets - a single userform with a combo box that allows 1 of 4 choices. It gets loaded and displayed in the workbook_open() event - or at least it should - but 9/10 times i get the message "Path/File error" and debug crashes out on the userform.show line. The next time I try and open the file (despite not saving it) Excel crashes and closes! Even re-starting Excel does not allow the file to be opened!
If, however, I open the file with macros disabled, and go into the VBE and manually run the workbook_open() all works fine. I'm using Excel 2003 and I've tried it on other installations - sometimes it will work, other times not.
I've tried every combination of userform load, unload, hide & show with similar results.
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.
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.
I have a userform that is working perfectly, but when I try to make it an add-in I can't even get it to load. When loading the userform as an add-in I get the error "Run error nr. '9'.: The Index is out of the interval" (freely translated from Swedish to English). The code I'm using to load the userform is
I've created a userform on one computer which launchs when I open the excel workbook. The userform contains comboboxs and a picture. But when i saved it on another computer and tried to open it and it errors. (Run-Time error 9). (Still works fine on the computer that created it). All references are to this workbook only. Userform is contained within the Forms folder of this workbook(not personal.xls) and the userform name is PDM_SPLASH1. Also, if i go into VBA I can see the form, but it wont launch when i try to play in manually. (Run-Time error 9)
Ive created a userform that I want to have input data into specific cells in my worksheet. I have the userform created, and some of the other VB stuff written, but it is far from being functional. I have come across the first of what to is to be many problems (Im pretty rusty at VB).
I have a button on my spreadsheet that is supposed to show the userform using this macro
When I click the button, it breaks at "Form1.Show" giving me "Run-time error 424 : Object Required".
I created a form that my employees could use to log their work. When I toggle between the combobox and the qtytextbox I get an "invalid property value" error that debugs to the line of code that opens the userform. I have no idea how to fix this. The spreadsheet has a button that shows the userform. This code is:
Private Sub rectangle1_click() If frmLCWork.Visible = False Then frmLCWork.Show Exit Sub End Sub
The userform has a combobox for employees to select the completed "task", a quantity textbox and then an "add to log" button. The form code is:
Option Explicit Private Sub cmdAdd_Click() Dim sStep As String Dim Row As Long 'check for a task If Trim(Me.cbxTask.Value) = "" Then Me.cbxTask.SetFocus MsgBox "Please specify which task you completed." Exit Sub End If....................
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?
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Call ShockwaveFlash1.SetVariable("testVar", "Message B") 'This sets the _ value of the variable in the Flash Project. End Sub
Private Sub ShockwaveFlash1_FSCommand(ByVal command As String, ByVal args As String) Text1.Text = args 'this catches the action sent by Flash, and uses it in the TextBox. End Sub
Private Sub UserForm_Activate() Call ShockwaveFlash1.LoadMovie(0, CurDir + "/vbSample.swf") 'This loads the movie that was made into level 0 of the project. End Sub
(I got from this link http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/flashvb.htm) As you can see I have adapted it to work in Excel 2007. Now - when i first run it - the flash file loads and shows in the userform. The only nag being that the .swf file doesnt pass the text into the textbox on the userform. But once i exit the Excel workbook and reload it - the .swf file doesnt show up at all no matter what i do.
On sheet4 is a list of dates and I named that range as UPDATES2013. Each cell in that range is a hyperlink. Sheet1 cell I3 is a data validation list with the named range UPDATES2013 as the list. When a selection from Cell I3 is made I can get it to follow they hyperlink with the code I have. The problem I am having is if there is no file found, then I would like my Userform1 to show. I have tried several different things with the code, but every time I think Im going to get it to work....it doesn't. It either wont show the Userform at all, or it shows it even if the file is found. I am currently putting the code to run the macro on the worksheet module using the worksheet_change event.
One last thing...I also have hyperlinks throughout Sheet1 that will lead to the same files as in the named range UPDATES2013 from sheet4. I need the same thing to happen if they click one of these hyperlinks instead of using the data validation list in Cell I3. Is there a way to make one code that will show Useform1 if a hyperlink is selected and the file cannot be located (whether it be by the individual cells on sheet1...or the data validation list in Cell I3)?Here is the code I am using right now.
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) DoFollow2013 ActiveCell End Sub [code]....
I have a range named "start" and I have a form named "fMenu". I have used this same code in other spreadsheets to have the userform automatically become visible when the spreadsheet is opened and it works in other workbooks. Apparently I have been struck with the stupid stick this morning. I have a hotkey of "M" and when I use control M the form shows up and the macros invoked by each button on the form are working properly.
Sub open_menu() Application.Goto "start" fMain.Show End Sub
Is there a way to display the location of an active workbook on my local drive and save it into a varible. I'm new to Excel and VBA but I'm trying to create a template to use for multiple vehicles. When the macro is run...
1) the workbook will have to identify what Workbook and worksheet it is in and save it as a varible so that it can access it later. Each workbook is specific to a vehicle. *(The reason is because I will need to refer to the address of the original workbook when pasting the copied data from the "OilChart" Workbook.)
2) Copy the vehicle identification # and save as a varible. (Dim vehicleNumber As Variant)
3) Open another workbook on the local drive (OilChart.xls)
4) Run the macro in the new workbook (OilChart.xls) to update the data
5) Search Column B in (OilChart.xls) for matches of the vehicleNumber, and for all rows that match, select and copy all rows and paste it back into the orig workbook (Vehicle Specific Workbook).
This is the code I have so far.
Private Sub btnFind_Click()
Dim vehicleNumber As Variant Dim sourceLocation As String Dim sourceFileName As String Dim fileName As String Application. ScreenUpdating = False
I have'nt figured out how to do step 5 yet so if anybody has any ideas I'd be open to them. I tried looking at Aaron Bloods Kickbutt VBA Find Function but I got a little lost on how his code would relate to my code. It also looks like it doesn't copy or paste anything to another workbook.
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......................
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
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--
