Userform Show Path/file Error 75

Jan 5, 2010

I have an excel 2003 template containing a userform that is displayed using the workbook_open event.

The userform causes excel to crash with file/path error 75. i have tried many suggestions given on ozgrid and several other forums with no joy.

When the userform crashes, the debugger stops on DataFormNew.show.

I have added stop commands in the initialise procedure to see what is going on and it appears that my userform has disappeared!

to upload the excel template and any other information required to get this sorted.
its size is 765 KB which exceeds the size limit to attach to the post.

here is the workbook_open macro:


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'On Error GoTo MyError
'Call UnProtectAll

'Dim frm As UserForm
'For Each frm In UserForms
' Unload frm

Crashes On UserForm Show By Next Button (Path/File Error)

UserForm: File/Path Access Error & I/O Error

Dec 19, 2006

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.

Path/File Error Showing UserForm

Dec 12, 2006

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.

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")

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.

UserForm Show Causes Error On 1 PC

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)

Show Userform - Invalid Property Value Error

Dec 31, 2007

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."

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?

Show Flash .swf File On Userform

Nov 20, 2007

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.

Show Userform Only If Hyperlink Does Not Locate File?

Dec 26, 2013

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)

Show Workbook Location & Path

Jan 10, 2008

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.

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

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

Separate File Name From File Path

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.

MoveFolder. Run-time Error 76, Path Not Found

Jun 13, 2007

I am getting the following run time error when trying to use MoveFolder from the scripting runtime library:

run-time error 76
path not found

The source and destination paths are picked up out of cells and I think the spaces in the name or the length of the path names may be causing the problem.

The source folder looks something like this (contains 50 characters):
K:Example123 Folder1AB CD ESubfold,XX abcdefgh

The destination folder looks something like this (contains 60 characters):
K:Example123 Folder1XX New123AB CD ESubfold,XX abcdefgh

The code is pretty basic:


Sub MoveFolder(Sourcepath As String, Destinationpath As String)
Dim FSO As Scripting.FileSystemObject

Set FSO = New Scripting.FileSystemObject

'some code here removes the trailing backslashes on the
'end of the pathnames

FSO.MoveFolder Sourcepath, Destinationpath
End Sub

I have double checked the source path name exists. I have also tried doing it manually with the path names being entered in as text but i keep getting the error.

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 (~),

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.
