VBA Macro To Find Specific File & Open

Nov 16, 2008

I've got a VBA macro set up in one Master excel file that manipulates a number of other files. Both the Master and the other files are all in a folder which is currently called C:Documents and SettingsusernameDesktopPipeline and my VBA script has this defined as the filepath and works exactly as I need it to. I will be moving the folder "Pipeline" to a shared drive on my server so my staff can access it, and will be sending it to colleagues who will be installing it on their own servers so they and their staff can use it. Is there a way to amend the code so that the VBA in the Master file looks in the folder in which it is locate, "Pipeline", no matter what the filepath leading to the "Pipeline" folder is?

Edit Macro To Open Specific File Automatically

Aug 16, 2007

I am using this code to get me to a path then I click on the file I want and it opens it and makes it a .csv file. Then my code does stuff with it and closes it. My question is, do I even have to click on it? Can I get the macro to automatically open the file. Note the "NewestFolderInThePath" is a function that open me up to the "newest" created folder in the path. From there I double click file.

NewestFolderInThePath = ReturnNewestFolder("\datawhse
ootLAW81LAWSONprintRBLEVINS2anrvwfins1")
Path = "\datawhse
ootLAW81LAWSONprintRBLEVINS2anrvwfins1"

TheFile = Path & NewestFolderInThePath
CreateObject("WScript.Shell").CurrentDirectory = TheFile

TheFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.*), *.*", , "Open Balance Sheet File FRPMBSDTL")
If TheFile = "False" Then

Using Macro To Open Specific File And Execute VLookup Function

Oct 5, 2012

I have to run a report each morning and in once cell I need to pull in the contents of another cell from another worksheet. I'd rather not have to open the additional file each morning to copy and paste special the values so I'd like to add to my current macro to pull this data in automatically. I have to do this for two different reports/portfolios and the data I am pulling in for each portfolio is located in the same exel file but under two different tab names, the portfolio names 2010 and 2045.

Deliverables
The spreadsheet I am pulling data in from is located here:
K:Risk OversightMarket RiskTracking ErrorBARRA
and the file name is: Daily Barra Tracking Error.xls

Tab name would be 2010 for the 2010 portfolio or 2045 for the 2045 portfolio The vlookup will be from "A32:B2500" and I would like to incorpoprate an IFERROR function that returns "" in the event of an error. Column "A" are dates and column "B" is the data I need to pull in.

Receivables I am pulling the data into cell "J23" of a summary report (sheet 2) and would like the vlookup to read something like this:

IFERROR(VLOOKUP("K1"Active.Workbook.Sheets2,[K:Risk OversightMarket RiskTracking ErrorBARRA"&"Daily Barra Tracking Error.xls"(Sheets)]."2010""A32:B2500",2,0),"")

This should return a blank cell if the date cannot be found in the data spreadsheet and return the correct data for teh correct date being referenced in my summary sheet.

how to do the bracketed parts for pulling in the right spreadsheet and tab.

Macro To Open Specific File By Searching Multiple Folders

Oct 11, 2013

I am trying to write a macro to open a specific file, but need to search multiple folders within folders to find it.

The file name I need to open is "Escalation Adherence-Details " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & ".xlsx".

I need to drill down to the Adherence Report folder and then have the macro search through folders for each year (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, etc) and then each month within each year (1 January, 2 February, 3 March, etc), at which point I would then find that day's file.

So far I have the following:

Code:
Sub Open_ESCL_Report()

Workbooks.Open Filename:=*****.****.****.******.comsharesPurchasingTeam XEscalationAdherence Report & "Escalation Adherence-Details " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & ".xlsx"
End Sub

Each file is stored in it's respective month folder as .....Adherence Report(Year)(Month)(File).xlsx

Possible To Use VLookup Function To Open Specific File

Oct 11, 2012

I am naming raw data files by the date of the data in the file. In another file I am using sumif and sumifs formulas to consolidate the data and organizing it by date, later to copy and paste special to keep the cleaned orgaized data in one spreadsheet. I would like to be able to reference a date and have excel open the appropriate file (named by the date) and then execute the sumif and sumifs formulas. If this is possible I can have the spreadsheet pull in all sorts of historical data all at once and I won't have to worry about copy paste special.

Excel VBA To Open Files In Folder With Specific String In Name Of File?

Aug 29, 2012

I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Measure Time Taken To Find File & Open

Aug 25, 2007

I am trying to measure how long it takes to locate a file the user wants to open. Eg., from when they click File|Open to when they click the "Open" button in the Open dialog box (after they have navigated through the directories to find their file).

I have approached this by using a class module and withEvents. This uses the Click event to trap when they have hit the File|Open button from the File menu and timestamp it.

class module: EventFileOpen

Public WithEvents cbOpen As CommandBarButton

Private Sub cbOpen_Click(ByVal Ctrl As Office.CommandBarButton, CancelDefault As Boolean)
MsgBox "File open started at: " & Now()
End Sub

Private Sub Class_Initialize()
Set cbOpen = Application. CommandBars.FindControl(ID:=23)
End Sub

Private Sub Class_Terminate()
Set cbOpen = Nothing
End Sub..........

Open File Macro, Error - Incrementing File Name

Feb 2, 2007

When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).

Example;
The first time it is opened you see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages1"...
I close the file and open it again (via the macro), and see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages2"...
The file name continues to increment on every opening until the PC is rebooted, then it starts at 1 again.

Dim wb As Workbook
Dim AlreadyOpen As Boolean

AlreadyOpen = False

For Each wb In Workbooks 'Scan open workbooks

Excel 2010 :: How To Find And Select (not Open) A File In Explorer Using VBA

Dec 11, 2013

Two months ago our employer seriously limited the size of our mailboxes. We are "forced" to store emails as msg files on our network. PST archives are not allowed. This naturally sucks, as in Explorer you only have the file names and dates to look for that one particular email amongst hundreds (thousands) of msg files. I was able to compose a program in Excel 2010 that generates a list of msg files from a selected folder, together with metadata (sender, receiver, etc.) and so on.

In a test the program worked fine with 6,710 msg files I could post the code here, but the comments and many of the variable names are in Dutch (I never expected it to work in the first place). There is one thing I would like to add to the program. Sometimes I want to add an email to a new email as an attachment. Nowadays I have to look for the right msg file in Explorer by hand, which is a pitty, because I have the paths and filenames in my worksheet. I can put that in a string variable and let VBA do the looking up.

But I don't know how. I would like to be able to let VBA look for the file in Explorer, select it and then stop. I could then drag and drop the selected msg file in my new email. But all my attempts to find example code end up with code that enables a user to select a file and immediately open it. That is one step too far for me. If the msg file is opened, I cannot add it to a new email as an attachment anymore.

Macro To Open Workbooks Of Multiple Specific Names?

May 2, 2014

I currently have a piece of code that opens all of the files in a folder that are called "*agent*", opens them and copies information. Now, these files come with numbers at the beginning which, are always the same. I only want to open certain files that begin with, for example, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805 and 806. How would I write this into my code? As you can see from the below code, it now looks for the files that all have "agent" in the name, but this is opening files that have that name but are not the right ones. Here is my current macro...

[Code] ....

I hope this isnt as simple as putting "MyFile = Dir(MyFolder & "*801*", "*802*")" etc.

Open File Macro: Same Directory As Macro Workbook

Is there a way to change code instead of having full file path to specify current directory. I'm worried that if I move this folder to another location then my open file button will not work since location is changed.

Also when I open with command button word document, I have a button on word document to close. I can close document but word application is still active. Can I close word application with the document at the sam time. This is the code I'm using: "ActiveWindow.Close"

Macro To Open Specific Files And Copy Data From Week Number Sheets

Jan 8, 2010

The data that is copied not always fills up the cells N13:O34 so I need it to go to the next blank cell in column N and paste the information from file Blue 2, and so on for Yellow 1, Yellow 2, YellNR, and Green.

So to summarise I need a macro to open 6 files copy data from the same location on each of the files(N13:O34) then close and paste it into a master document(Press.xls) worksheet "Press Break".

Excel 2010 :: Using Macro To Open Network File

Jan 5, 2014

I am an extreme novice to using macros.

I used the 'record macro' feature to create the following: I created a rectangle box on sheet1 of NEW TEST.xlsm to link to the macros incidated below. Niether macro moves on after reaching the Workbooks.Open statement.

I am at a loss. Is there something in Excel that needs to be set? Is there something else that I need to do version of Excel is 14.0.6129.5000 (32 bit) MS Office Professional Plus 2010

What I am trying to accomplish is this: From 'NEW TEST.xlsm', open an excel file on the network, add a new sheet to this network file, calling it 'Pivot'. Then create a pivot table in this new sheet from the data in sheet data1 of this same network file. Then move control of macro / processing back to the NEW TEST file. Eventually I will do more, but for starters, I cannot even get the macro to add / name a new sheet in the network file.

[SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]PS I have attached the NEW TEST.xlsm fikle as we as the data file. NOTE: the data file has been reduced to one day's worth of data, to to the upload file size.Also, my Excel Trustred locations has "Allow trusted locations on my network" checked, and the network location to the data file in trusted user locations.

VB:

Sub Open_Add_Sheet()
Dim filename, filelocation As String
Dim wb As Workbook
filename = "11 Nov, 2013 GDO AHS Agent Productivity Report.xls"
filelocation = "R:acharukAHS ReportsGDOGDO CSR ACTIVITY Report2013" & filename
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filelocation) '

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that it’s not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ‘Workbook_Open’ etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesn’t contain a macro to auto open and because csv’s usually don’t like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.
