I have written a macro to loop through files and subfolders to open a specific file for a specific month. I extract the datasets for every excel file into a master template. The code works flawlessly when all of the files have the .xlsm extension. However, I need to open .xls file formats also. When my code opens the first .xls file, named "Staffing Plan.xls" it opens it and automatically makes it "Staffing Plan1 [Compatibility Mode]. I can't open the file in the original "Staffing Plan.xls" file format to read data from. How can I fix this?
A client has sent me an Excel workbook that appears on the screen with the message adivising that it is Protected View as a result of having been downloaded from the internet. If I click on the Enable Editing button the workbook is completely deactivated. I have played around with my Trust Centre settings but nothing seems to work.
I have a macro enabled spreadsheet and I need to save one sheet into a new file that is in xls format. I can do that --- is there anyway to suppress the Compatibility Checker box to make it that much easier?
The new file will not have macros as will just be a data in rows and columns so compatibility. Interesting is the compatibility checker box says there are links to the original spreadsheet, but I can't find them in the connections menu.
I've created one file, that acts as a launching file. It does several things, including environment validation, and downloading new files from a web repository, etc... Once it has done everything it needs to do, it launches a 2nd file (the main user input file - which is tied to an external DB), fires the start-up routine in that 2nd file, then quietly gets out of the way.
This all works perfectly, unless the 2nd file gets closed before the start-up routine is finished. (this could happen for several reasons, including invalid login credentials). I've oversimplified the issue below: ...
This is a follow-on to a great solution provided by Shg and Rylo. Here is the link. http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...new-sheet.html
My users have run in to an interesting issue with the file. Each time the files opens it has the same 5 questions selected. What I need the code to do is randomize the questions each time the sheet is opened. Basically, the users seem to have a problem using the "make quiz" button, so they have requested that I make sure that the quiz randomizes each time it is opened.
why the below code opens files as read only? What this code does is open all worksheets, in four different folders, whose filenames include the desired date. For example, if i want all worksheets for the 19th, then K117819, k127819, k217819 and K226119 all open. Except they open as read-only which requires saving to a different location and then renaming - which sort of defeats the time saving reason for running the code in the first place.
Public Sub Auto_Open() Dim sCurFile As String Dim sPath As String Dim mpath As String MsgBox "This tool will print all four production lines line report total sheet for any month and day in 2007" mpath = InputBox("Enter the month i.e. 01 for January", "print") fpath = InputBox("Enter day of the month to print (use leading 0's)?", "print") Application. ScreenUpdating = False Application.DisplayAlerts = False Application.AskToUpdateLinks = False 'Get the path sPath = "t:2007" & mpath & "k11"...............
I have the following code saving a copy of a spreadsheet as a backup every 30 minutes. The problem is the save code is running as soon as the file is opened. I want to save only after the file has been open for 30 minutes. The way it is now if I open the sheet up and something is wron the backup has already been overwritten by the messed up sheet. Will someone please let me know what needs changed to eliminate the inital running of the code?
Sub do_something() sec = 1800 when = Now + sec / 60 / 60 / 24 Application.OnTime when, "do_something" Application.DisplayAlerts = False ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs "S:QUALITYTest Results Spread SheetBackup of Riser MezRiser Mez backup.xls" Application.DisplayAlerts = True End Sub
I am trying exactly the same things stated in here Open two workbooks at the same time as stated in the other thread's answer I would love to "just use the Workbook name IF both Workbooks are in the same folder." both files are in the same folder and this is the code that I am trying to use
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Workbooks.Open ("toto1234.xls")
and it does not work any one explain me what I am doing wrong?
When I open any saved Excel file the saved file opens along with a blank workbook titled "Book 1". How can I make it so when I open any saved Excel file it only opens the file I want and not a new workbook every time?
Is it possible to set the default page to open when clicking the file button? In particular, I use the recents feature a lot but never have I looked at the information on the information page. Everytime I click the file button I have to then select recents which is annoying.
I have a file is used by many person at the same time. Sometime 2 person can open it as compatible mode , when 2nd person save will write over the 1st person data, that means all have been done by 1st person will be gone, serious problem.
Normally open a file will tell me who have using it , but it show wrongly person although the person has not open the file. worse that 1 day only show 1 person name.
I put together about 10 separate macros that will log you into a site using the values in a given cell. I was having trouble with the last one because of AutoComplete remembering the username. So I put in an IF statement, and when I used F8 to go line for line, it works perfectly. However, when I click F5 and just let it play through, it doesn't log in. I tried adding a 5 second delay, but that didn't seem to work. I still get a run-time error when I hit play.
It get hung on this line:
Code: If doc.getElementById("user_name").Value = cUsername Then
But the complete code is this:
Code: Sub StreetLinks_Login() 'On Error Resume Next
Dim cURL As String cURL = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B9").Value
I have downloaded Excel 2007 as a trial on to my computer (with Excel 2003 in another directory), when I load an excel file developed in Excel 2002 (containing macros) and try an open it with Excel 2007 the message "This workbook has lost its VBA, ActiveX controls and any other programmability-related features" - no problems in Excel 2003
I would like to send a .xls file created in Excel 2007 to a user who will work with this file on a PC that runs Excel 2003. Will they be able to open and use a file created in a newer version of Excel?
I have a spreadsheet created in Excel 2003. All the non-entry cells are locked. When I protected the sheet I ticked the option for the auto filter to work. The problem is when I send the spreadsheet to my user - she uses Excel 2000. The auto-filter buttons do not work for her but they do work for me. Is there anyway round this? I need to have the sheet locked (apart from the entry cells) but I also need the auto filter function. I've attached the spreadsheet I'm talking about. The protection password is set to "password"
I have an activity recording tool created in Excel 2003 which works perfectly (ish) However when some of my colleagues use it on machines running Excel 2000 it falls over at the following definition
Dim dlgFile As FileDialog
this is part of the following sub routine
Sub doCopy() Application.ScreenUpdating = False Call Archive Dim dlgFile As FileDialog Dim rv As Long Dim sCreated As String Dim sClosed As String Dim wsThis As Worksheet Dim wbkAOM As Workbook Dim sThisCol As String Dim aAOMCol As String Dim strDate As String Dim wsCore As Worksheet Dim wsDiverted As Worksheet Dim iRow As Integer Set wsThis = Application. ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet Set dlgFile = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker) dlgFile.Title = "Select AOM Sheet" dlgFile.InitialFileName = "*.xls" rv = dlgFile.Show.......................
I have a two sets of data, from two different programs (Excel and Access), were the dates are not compatible with each other in vlookop in excel. The problem seems to be in the decimals of the datevalues, which I have been trying to solve the problem in various ways. The only thing I can get to work is to trunc the dates to get rid of flawed decimals somewhere in the end of the datevalue.
My question to you is how many decimals I should use when I trunc in order to keep the right date in the format of (yy-mm-dd hh:mm). So far, 10 have proven unsuccessful (=trunc(A2,10)), but 8 seems to work. I wonder if I can decrease that number even more and still keep the format above?
Currently I am working on a workbook where I am using a Save As VBA to create a folder and rename the file. The following code seems to be working fine so far with Excel 2007. Is there a way to confirm that it will work with all other versions of Excel and that my DesktopFolderPath String will work on all users machines?
In addition to these concerns, I am trying to avoid any Runtime Errors and currently, the Compatability Alert is the only thing I can see that is creating one. When it displays, in the event the user is unsure what to do, as most of our field staff is, and they select "Cancel" it displays the error Run Time Error.jpg. Can the Compatibility Alert be disabled? If so where do i add it in my code.
Is it possible to write vba code that will generate a text file with ALL changes that were made to an excel file. Ex. If Cell A17 = "Monday, June 4, 2012" and a user updates Cell A17 to "N/A", I would like to know what the value was before and after the udpate was made.
I have a spreadsheet where I want to require certain fields to be completed then I want to have that file auto emailed. I have learned that I do need to have the file saved before sending otherwise the data will not appear in the email, so with this I want to have the file temporarily saved emailed then the temp file deleted.
Here is the code I have so far but it errors on the blue text, I did change the TempFileName from = "Copy of " & wb1.Name & " " & Format(Now, "dd-mmm-yy h-mm-ss") to = [C16] & "_" & [B6] & "_" & [D6]
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() If Range("B6").Value = "" Or _ Range("d6").Value = "" Or _ Range("f6").Value = "" Or _ Range("E9").Value = "" Or _
