VBA - Error Opening Excel Document When Rerunning Macro
Nov 21, 2012
I am basically using a combobox in word that opens an excel spreadsheet and pulls information about the people entered in the combobox. The information pulled from excel is then pasted into the original word document.
The problem that I am having is that the macro may be needed to run twice (ex. suppose the user forgot to include an individual in the first run) and on the second run the excel document cannot be opened and it gets stuck on the loop. The macro will only work again if the word document is closed and reopend. I suspect that the excel document is not completly closing on the first runthrough.
I've included my code below. The initialize combobox code is on the bottom. I
Dim WordApp As Word.ApplicationDim xlApp As Excel.Application
'Dim xlWB As Excel.WorkbookPrivate Sub CommandButton1_Click()Bios
= ActiveWindow.CaptionSet WrdDoc
= ActiveDocumentlastrow = Range("A1").End(xlDown).RowS
The following script runs fine the first time I click the command button on an Access form but after I close the Excel workbook and click the command button again to edit a new spreadsheet, I get the follow error message:
Run-time error '1004': Method "Columns' of object'_Global failed.
It fails here:
The script is being run from Access 2007 and is opening a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 (but using xls extension)
Code: Private Sub IdahotoExcel_Click() Dim dlg As FileDialog Dim idahofile As String
I have a shared document that I want other team members to enter data only into. For some reason when they open the shared document it is showing as read only to them how to fix this? See below settings used
I have a user form with a TextBox (TextBox1), the user enters a filename and presses CommandButton1, this then opens the file. I have set an error trap so that if the file does not exist a MsgBox prompts the user to re-enter. So far so good, however if the error trap operates any further files entered are declared as non-existent even if I know they exist. I thought this would be quite easy but once again VBA bites me back!!
here is my code
stPath = ThisWorkbook.Path stFilename = "Retention" & "" & TextBox1 & ".xls" stFullname = stPath & "" & stFilename 'completes full path of for TextBox1
On Error Goto Errorhandler: 'go to this if file does not exist Workbooks.Open stFullname ActiveWorkbook.RunAutoMacros xlAutoOpen
The macro (used to) go down the list of spreadsheets and copy certain data from them into this master workbook. Now I'm getting a "'C:Users310108841DesktopTestFolder' could not be found" error and don't know why.
The error appears to happen here:
What's more infuriating is that this appears to happen at random. I have been trying all afternoon to get it to work, and had no luck. I have literally just run it now, and it works fine. I can't believe it just works at random.
I have this macro currently running on an original excel document
Private Sub Workbook_Open()Dim fname fname = "C:ackupEconomics Tracker - " & Format(Now, "dd mmm yy hh mm AM/PM") & ".xlsm" ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs Filename:=fname Sheets("Menu").Activate End Sub
Which creates a backup of the document each time the document is opened; I was wondering, is it possible to remove that particular macro from the backup as opposed to saving the backup as .xlsx? I don't want to be able to open a backup and the backup makes a backup
That particular macro is running on the main workbook.
I need a script that will turn a excel doc into a txt doc. Thats the easy part. The hard part (at least I think it is), is I need it to be in a certain format and I'll do my best to explain that fomat below.
I cannot figure out how to get my error handler to work, or actually, not work. It seems to work fine when there is an error, but the code still gets read even when there was not an error. Basically, I am trying to open a file, which may or may not be there. When it is not there I want a message to pop up informing the user. However, when the file is there and it opens, the error handler still gives the message box. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
Private Sub btnOK_Click() Application. ScreenUpdating = False Dim LCSfile As String LCSfile = frmSelectFile.Listbox1.Value On Error Goto ErrHandler Workbooks.Open Filename:=sPath & sDate & "" & LCSfile & "QUANT.CSV" ErrHandler: MsgBox ("File is not quantitated. Please select another file.") Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Currently I am going back and forth between an excel document and a word document cutting and pasting values from the excel spreadsheet into tables in word. The task is a regular occurance therefore I wish to create a Macro that can automate this procedure. Both the excel and word documents are fixed templates therefore once a Macro is created it can be applied to all future work of similar nature.
Each table in the word document contains 6 rows of values in a single column. The excel data is arranged in a table that is 6 rows by x number of columns (how ever many sets of values there are for the particular job) therefore x determines how many tables must exist in the word document. I move between the excel and word document cutting and pasting each column into each table. This is not so time consuming if x=10 however on occasion x=100+ and it does take time.
I have a macro set up in Excel that formats and deletes rows matching a citeria. Once the macro runs I then manually copy the data across into Word. I would like to automate this.
I would like the macro to copy over any cells containing data iinto a new word document. I also have standard text that I would like to include at the beginning and end of the word document. With the excel data being placed in the centre.
I have searched the web and tried a couple of macros with no luck. All the macros state "' requires a reference to the Word Object library: ' in the VBE select Tools, References and check the Microsoft Word X.X object library"
I am unsure how to reference this - but I have checked and found that the object library ticked is Microsoft Word 11.0 Object Library.
All I want is to generate a word document with built in word header and footer (header and footer style name is "alphabet") based on the values which i mention in excel(path,word file name and header content.
I tried locking an excel document and i ticked a box that said protect structure, and then entered my password and now I cannot open the document. It is a white square on my desktop now with no options to do anything, it cannot even be attached to an email or deleted. This was on excel 2008 on a macbook.
Sub OpenCalendarForm() frmCalendar.Show vbModeless
When I run this I get this halt "System error&H80070057 (-2147024809). The parameter is incorrect. I havn't been doing VBA in a while as I am retired now but I have used this particular statement many times in the past and never had this error before. I have made sure there no typos. I open another workbook which has forms opening and copy pasted the the routine into my other workbook but I get the same error.
I am working on a worksheet with quite a few advisors who will be using the sheet, because of this reason I am trying to cover my back with as much error handling with my VBA script as possible. Where I am struggling is the following line:
Code: Set cb = Workbooks.Open("wilm-dchome"UserName"DesktopCurrent projectPipeline Grouped.xlsm")
I want to have an error handler that says if this file cannot be found use the following line of code instead:
Code: Set cb = Workbooks.Open(Application.GetOpenFilename())
It may even be just a simple if statement instead but I cant seem to find the answer.
I do not understand why my code returns a Run Time Error"9" Subscript out of range. With the following code, I opened a workbook and then wish to close that same workbook without saving. Eventually I will be pulling information from the workbook but for now I just want it to open and then close right away.
Private Sub cb_NewDate_Change() ListIndex = cb_NewDate.ListIndex
If ListIndex = 0 Then
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Workbooks.Open Filename:="I:JoeNetwork Conversion FactorsNetworkConversionFactors_Ver_2_0_0.xls" Application.Workbooks("I:JoeNetwork Conversion FactorsNetworkConversionFactors_Ver_2_0_0.xls").Close False End Sub
I am getting a runtime error 32809, Application-defined or Object-defined error when I try to open my workbook. I remember someone posting code to set the VBA References when the Workbook is opened and I think this is what I need, because the file will run on Excel 2000 and not on Excel 2003. I know the References are different, but I don't know how to change them.
Having a problem with a simple udf to calculate values across multiple sheets using the calling cell as a reference point. It works great until you open another workbook and then switch back. At that point all cells calling this udf return a #value! error. If I type anywhere on the sheet all of the values will recalculate but this is less than ideal for the end users here. below is example of concept
Function TestMe() Application.Volatile (True) Dim strCallAddress As String Dim intSubTotal As Integer strCallAddress = Application.Caller.Address intSubTotal = Worksheets(2).Range(strCallAddress).Value intSubTotal = intSubTotal + Worksheets(3).Range(strCallAddress).Value TestMe = intSubtotal End Function
Apparently my program quits after i try to open an excel file. If you open the file manually you get an error upon opening the file...something like this:
"File you are tyring to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension".
The problem is i am using an excel macro using VBA and once the file is opened the VBA execution quits.
The excel file turns out to be an xml file which excel can open the file and have the VBA continue running if i RENAME the file with an "xlsx" extension. The problem is that i cant ask the user to rename the file.........how do i get VBA to open the file without an issue?
I have a list of workbooks on a sheet that i am trying to open with vba one by one. If a workbook in my list does not exist or was deleted then excel displays a runtime error. Is there a way to bypass this error and have the code skip the non existant workbook and open the next one?
whats happening to my workbook. On a worksheet called Data, i'm pulling in a lot og data from a database. Then on another worksheet i'm looking for certain things on the data sheet and counting how many there are.
This all goes along find until i close the workbook, and then re-open.I click the automatically update button that appearsand once it finishs updating all my values are replaced with #Value.
I have a macro that should be sorting the last column of data, but it gives me an error code of "400". No explanation of the error, just the number. I have a feeling it is because I have formulas in place to pull the data from other sources, and the associated "#Value!" error is whited out by using the conditional formatting. Is there a way to have this macro only look at numeric values?
