Jan 24, 2014

At work we use a spreedsheet to control our holidays. The problem we are having is the file is stored on a network and some people are opening the file and not closeing it once done with, this is locking out others from using it.

Is there any VBA code that will close the file, if not used in say 5 mins

Automatically Close File And Save Changes With A New Name

Jun 13, 2009

I am trying to fix is that I have two computers networked together both with multiple users all with access to the report form that I am using which is in the shared file. If I have been working on it (I am still trying to do improvements when I have time), and I have to leave for a fire or forget to close the report, no one can access it other than with read-only.

My idea was to run some type of code that either when the screen saver comes on or after so much time with no activity, it would close and save the file with a new file name(just in case I don't want the changes that I have made in the code or something).

Save And Close File If There Is Text In Cell Range

Nov 12, 2012

I do have the below code to safe a file and close it:

Sub Save_Close()
'
' Save_Close Macro
'
'
ActiveWorkbook.Save
Application.Quit
End Sub

I would like to do additionally something else. I need a macro to do the above, but it should first check if cells A2:C9 do contain text. The text could be anything.

If there is text in ALL the cells, then the macro should save and close the file. If there is text missing in at least one of the cells, a message box should appear saying 'Please fill out all cells'.

I need to open about 2000 documents one at a time, and save them with a different name.

What should the line be? or is it more complex than a single line ?

Close File Without "Save Changes" Dialog Box?

Aug 31, 2009

I have a summary file (I'll call it File A) from which a macro is run. It opens other files, finds a "total line" then copies it into File A. Then it closes that file, opens another, and repeats the process. The macro works fine for most of the files it opens and closes, but on some of them, upon the close command, a dialog box pops up asking "Do you want to save the changes you made to "File B.xls"?

I'm not sure why this comes up as there were no changes made. Cells were only copied and pasted into another file. Is there a way to stop this annoying box from popping up? It slows down the macro by waiting for human input. here is my

Auto Close Workbook If Kept Open For More Than 5 Minutes

Dec 21, 2006

I have an excel file stored on a network drive for the purpose of information sharing. (File protected with a password)

But some the guys leave the file open for quiet long time and hence I cannot open the file for updating the data.

-I need to have a macro that runs every 5 minutes and displays an alert message saying "Please close the File" as long as the file is kept open.

-A second macro with a modified version of the above to close the file automatically after 5 minutes from file opening time after showing an alert message "You cannot leave the File Open, File is Closed Automatically!"

Auto Save As VBA Macro Every X Minutes?

Dec 20, 2008

I have found some posts about "Auto Saving" and Dave pretty much frowns upon that. But the program I use (via ODBC), for some reason doesn't see the changes I make unless the file is saved. I have it auto-saving right now, but was thinking, maybe it is better to export a copy.

What I would need, is the ability to take my current workbook and export it to a new file (overwriting that same file each time), and do this based on time or (even better) on a change in the data. My current workbook is set to pull from other CSV files, scraping our website, etc., and then I use Excel to format the data the way I want.

It would be cool, if I could export two versions each time too... one that would be like a archive of what the file was like when it changed, the other would be the one that just gets overwritten each time.

Love this site...tons of info...but dang am I not smart at this stuff. Half the time, I don't even get where to put the code...worksheet, module, workbook?

Automatically Save Workbook Every X Minutes

Oct 27, 2008

I've created a MsgBox that if you do not respond or Click on it within a set time it will either disappear or perform an action upon no selection. It works great....IF itís the only excel workbook open. If there is a second workbook open (Even if the second WB is minimized) then the MsgBox just stays up and the "Timer" no longer works. My Code is as Follows:

Sub TimedMsgBox()
Dim Box As Object
Dim varResponse As Variant
Dim Res As Long
Set Box = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

varResponse = Box.Popup(Text:="Which button will you click?", secondstowait:=5, Title:="Click Me!", Type:=vbYesNoCancel)
If varResponse = vbYes Then
MsgBox "You clicked Yes"
ElseIf varResponse = vbNo Then
MsgBox "You clicked No"
ElseIf varResponse = vbCancel Then
MsgBox "You clicked Cancel"
ElseIf varResponse = -1 Then
Res = Box.Popup(Text:="What? Do you not like me?", secondstowait:=5, Title:="You Didn't click Me!", Type:=vbOK)
End If
End Sub

Automatically Save/List Cell Value Every X Minutes

May 28, 2008

I have a range that refer to an external data. This external data is refreshed every one minute. So the data is changing every one minute. I need to copy the content of one fix cell in that range into another cell every one minute, each time copy to a different cell. Example: cell A1 has the content that refer to an external data. Cell A1 is updated every one minute. At first A1= 100, I need it to be copied to cell B1 (so B1=100); one minute later, A1=101, I need it to be copied to B2 (so B2=101) and so on.

Save Workbook & Close

Jul 8, 2006

One of my computers pulls info from my cash register once everyday (sales info). Then I have a excel monthly sales sheet that pulls the info from the register info and puts it in the right places. So the computer pulls the register info at 9:20pm everyday, then I have my task manager open excel at 9:25 everyday and it has a workbook open macro to automatically pull the info into the excel spreadsheet. Here's my problem-- I need to close it.

I'm sure I could use a workbook close macro, but when it tries to close it won't it come up with a save, don't save, cancel prompt? Nobody will be there to hit SAVE so it won't close? Is there just a macro that could save it then close it?

No To Save On Sheet Close

Jul 24, 2006

I have a macro that has to open another worksheet and get data and close the sheet. The problem is when the sheet closes after I have gotten the data it asks if I want to save it. I don't want the user of my macro to see this option because it slows things down. To avoid this in the past I had the worksheet save itself so that it wouldn't ask me to save. Now the worksheet is large and it takes a while to save and it is getting slow. Is there any way not to save it but close it without having excel asking if you want to save it?

Save As In Before Close Event

Jan 16, 2007

I need to use the BeforeClose event to save the workbook with the same name when a user closes it. (82 users and they all seem to want to give it their own name.) I have the following code in the BeforeClose event but would like to eliminate the prompt "this file already exists, do you want to replace it" I have tried using the Application.DisplayAlerts = False but this seems to stop the workbook from saving.
I have a public demention called wbName and is set to the workbook name in an outo open macro

Public wbName
Public Sub auto_open()
wbName = ActiveWorkbook.Name

UserForm2.Show
MsgBox "PLEASE do Not insert rows/columns or enter calculations" _
& Chr(10) & " " _
& Chr(10) & "Enter Only Account Name, Date, and Corresponding_ Calls/Details", vbCritical, "Caution"

Save As Shared On Close

Aug 14, 2007

When a supervisor goes into one of my sheets and adds some things in, she quite often forgot to share it again. To try and combat this I added the following code:-

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(cancel As Boolean)
Dim myworkb As String
myworkb:
myworkb = ThisWorkbook. Name
If myworkb = "SLE.MasterSheet.SLE1.xls" Then
Call NoProtection
ActiveWorkbook. SaveAs Filename:="SLE.Mastersheet.SLE1.xls", accessmode:=xlShared
End If
Call Limpa
Run "DeleteMenu"
End Sub

The code appears to do everything it should, and when I first ran it appeared to be ok. However, now it appears to save it as shared yet when you go back into the file it opens up as exclusive.... Is there a reason why the code wont "share" ?

Save Backup Of Workbook Before Close

Dec 15, 2009

I call the macro below from a Workbook_BeforeClose sub; however, if the user has not saved changes before they hit the close then the Sub SaveFile runs and then after the backup save they are then asked do you want to save changes.

I initially had this sub run with Workbook_BeforeSave, but I don't really want to run this everytime the user selects save.

Any ideas on how to how the save changes first and then the backup?

Save, Close, Then Reopen Workbook

Oct 2, 2007

I am testing the following section of code.

Sub Macro1()
Dim NewWB As Workbook, NewName As String
Set NewWb = Workbooks.Add
NewName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(ThisWorkbook.Name)
NewWb.SaveAs NewName
NewWb.Close False
Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "/" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
End Sub
It seems like I need to rename the sheet I am working on in order for this code to work. If I do not, it tells me that it "cannot save this workbook with the same name as another open workbook".

I am trying to use this code to get around an error with Excel described here: [url]

I would like to have the sheet save itself (not "Save As"), close, reopen, and continue running the macro. What adjustments do I need to make to this code to do this. I have tried different things, but I must be getting the syntax wrong.

Error Handling (Close Without Save)

May 12, 2009

I've got some code that reformats a file that a supplier sends us. They seem to randomly change the structure, so I'm trying to make the code a bit more robust.

Part of the code uses MATCH to look for specific column headings, so I've got some error handling around this of the format:

On Error GoTo NoIncCol
Line using MATCH
On Error GoTo Exiting
where Exiting is my standard error handling (Close without Save) and NoIncCol is the same, but with an error message saying that the term the code was trying to MATCH can't be found. This works well for me.

In another part of the code, I need to check for another column heading, which so far has turned up in two different forms. At the moment I'm doing this as follows:

With Sheets("Sheet1").Range("1:1")
Set rFound = .Find("Term1")
If Not rFound Is Nothing Then
a = "Term1"
Else

This feels a bit clunky, and I don't really like having what is essentially error-handling in the middle of my code. But the only other way I can think of to do it is to use a GoTo, and I believe that's not really considered good practice either.

Save As And Close Active Workbook

May 13, 2009

I am trying to create a form button that will save as and close the active workbook. I have the Save As code working but I can't find any code to close the workbook that will work. A couple of issues: I don't have control of what the workbook is called - the user will name it - so I can't do a simple Workbooks (" ").Close. Also, I don't want to quit the application. I don't know if the user will have other worksheets open. I also tried ActiveWorkbook.Close and that didn't seem to work either. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
