VBA Macro To Find Specific File & Open
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
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
Path = "\datawhse
TheFile = Path & NewestFolderInThePath
CreateObject("WScript.Shell").CurrentDirectory = TheFile

Open File Macro, Error - Incrementing File Name
When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).
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.

Measure Time Taken To Find File & Open
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()
Private Sub Class_Initialize()
Set cbOpen = Application. CommandBars.FindControl(ID:=23)

Saving A File With Specific File Name Using Macro
I am trying to save my workbook in a specific directory with a specific filename and to incorporate a date field from within the spreadsheet. I have changed the format of the cell so it does not include / as i know this would not work. Saving it is the easy part but adding in the field from the spreadsheet is where im falling over.
Open File Macro: Same Directory As Macro Workbook
I created folder on my desktop to hold various documents. I have master excel document which contains forms and command buttons that open documents from same folder. 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
What im trying to do is have a macro that will open a file called Blue 1.xls in location "I:SchedulesBlue" and then copy data from cells N13:034. Then paste it into another excel file (Press.xls)on worksheet "Press Break" cell G14.
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".

Or at the very least is there a way to be able to tell if Excel is already open?

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open
I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,
Dir /b >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.
Macro: Allow User To Choose Workbook/File To Open
I am making a macro that requires that user to enter a directory path into a input box and the macro will open the file.

Macro: Paste Cell From Specific Files To 1 General File
i have about 80 files that all have the same structure. I also have a general excel file that I need to fill with values from each of the 80 files. I'd like to use a macro that can be applied to each of the 80 files at a time (or at the same time, if that's possible) so I can copy the cells (only the text, not the formula) I need from each individual file to the general sheet.
each file is:
I need to copy the "123" to a cell in the general sheet, "456" to a different cell in the general sheet and so on (to be able to choose which cell in the general sheet I am copying to).

Macro - To Delete Whole Rows After We 'control' Find Something From A Specific Column
I am not the best at this, but we recorded a macro and we want to delete whole rows after we 'control' find something from a specific column. WHen we recorded our macro, it finds the first instance and we hightlight the whole row and 'control' 'shift' 'end' and delete all of the rows. We did this because we sorted and made sure the information we wanted to delete was at the bottom of the worksheet. we realized that each day the spreadsheet we pull from an ip address gets bigger and the row that we started from to delete starts on a different row each day. How do we get all the information to delete everyday, even when the row that Owned starts on changes? ...
Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html
I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:
- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)
- Copy paste as values
- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)
- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)
- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file
My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.
Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.
I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.

the above information have following header ie. Location, P.O.Box, Address, Tel, Fax and Category.
every time one of the header inforamtion is missing ie. Address or P.O.Box, Or Fax, due to this problem every time cell address of information aganist header is change. supose in first copy/paste Tel inforamtion is in A15, but second time it may be on A13, and 3rd time it may be on A17 and so on.

Macro To Find The Last Date Of A File
I need to write a macro that will find the most recent date of file. For instance, I may have the following:
A B C
BIBLIO.MDB367411204/30/1998 22:27:36 CDT
BIBLIO.MDB361062407/25/1996 01:00:00 CDT
BIBLIO.MDB361062404/24/1998 01:00:00 CDT
Where Biblio is the filename, then the size of the file and the dates. I want to do this for a very long list and get only the most recent date used and delete the others.
I have a list of several thousand files and I want the macro to be able to go all the way down the list.
I am using Excel 2007.
Check To See If File Is Open, And If It Is Open, Activate It
I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".
When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:
Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files
I'm doing the following:
Dim myname As String
myname = Application. GetOpenFilename
I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook.
The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but
I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then
parse off to get just the workbook name.
Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.
Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:
myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")
I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.
Date Function- Open A File, Make An Exact Copy And Save It Under A New File Name

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
What I'm trying too do is open a file, make an exact copy and save it under a new file name.
My problem is in the date formula the day is not always the same. In the sample case it's 03 at other times the day will change.
is there a way too get this too work irregardles of what the day might be?
Auto Open Macro To Find Correct Week Tab & Day/date In 52 Week Worksheets
I am new to VBA & not sure of the full understanding of code copied from a workbook which worked on the same principle but with Monthly (12) tabs. I thought if modified to show weeks, the macro would be able to locate the current week tab & day/date within - but upon opening, the cell stops at WK19 & column O - rather than WK43, Column N (which changes daily).
week(1) = "WK1"
week(2) = "WK2"
week(3) = "WK3"
week(4) = "WK4"
week(5) = "WK5"
week(6) = "WK6"
week(7) = "WK7"
week(8) = "WK8"
week(9) = "WK9"

Macro Loop – Find Specific Times, Extract Date, Average Values Of Times
In my workbook I have about 20 sheets (less in the attached sample), and on most sheets I’d like to query data for each day and find an average value based on the time and then copy that result into another sheet. I’m not sure if I’ll need 2 macro’s for this or if one can be used.
Here’s a quick description:
Assuming that I am currently in the sheet I want to run the macro, then I will either input “1:45” or “0:45” into a popup box, or I could always simply input the 1:45 or 0:45 in the code itself. I’m flexible
If I input 1:45, then I’d like the macro to find the first 1:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation. Once 1:45 is located, then the macro moves up to find 22:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation.....
Formula To External File, Requires File To Be Open
I've got a couple of formulas in a workbook which lookup values in another workbook. When I reopen the initial workbook the formulas results come back as errors (i.e. #VALUE!) unless the workbook it is looking at is also open. This is not desirable, does anyway know how I can lookup values in another workbook which are not open? The formula which is causing me problems is as follows:
= SUMIF( 'H:Infozoom[2006-01_assy.xls]New Table1'!$F:$F,$A8,'H:Infozoom[2006-01_assy.xls]New Table1'!$AH:$AH)/60
Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook
I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.
Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using
Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value
If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.
Macro To Copy Specific Cells From Row From Source & Stop When Next Row Cell = Specific Value
I have a protected template and unprotected source worksheets - - - what I would like to happen is for the macro to start and if the source worksheet cell B3 equals "Report Total" then stop - otherwise copy template worksheet then copy 6 specific cells from the source to paste values to specific cells on the newly created worksheet (B_ to C7, D_ to I7, E_ to C9, F_ to K9, A_ to C11, M_ to K11 and then K13=F13-30)
After that then start all over again unless the next row’s cell (B4, B5, B6, . . .) is "Report Total" then stop - - - the row count could be from one to a couple hundred.
Here is what I have so far but I know that with each copy the name will change and as it goes down the source file each row will change and I also need help with that.
Sheets("ee template").Copy After:=Sheets(3)

Detect If Specific Workbook Open
Problem: I want a macro to detect if a workbook is open so I can skip the workbook and move onto the next item. I do not want the user to be prompted in any way. I do not want the workbook to be shared. I simply want to pass over the workbook (but be aware I have passed it over).
About forty team members have their own workbooks and at day’s end the team leader uses a macro to poll each team member’s workbook in turn to gather work results. When gathering these results the macro also needs to write some admin data to each workbook.
I am aware of the workbook sharing option in Excel, but I am wary of using it. It is not a show stopper if a team member’s workbook is already open and work is not gathered on a particular day – we’ll get it the next day. I just need to be able to trap the event and manage it. The central command I use to access a team member’s workbook is :
Let A User Open A New .xls File And Get File Name
I have a workbook were a user will write down some info. Then I need to copy that data to a second workbook located anywere in the Hard drive. i used the function "GetOpenFilename" or the "Application.dialogs(xlopenfile) to ask the user where is the file (and open it). Now I need to get the name of that file. How can I get it?(the name of the file the user selected to open). P.S. I saw there is somewhere a "Print" function to copy data from a workbook to another closed workbook. I was planning to have both workbooks open and then just use several lines like:
Open .xls File From .bat DOS File & Save As .csv
What I would like to do is to open an excel workbook from a bat file in dos with one arguement.
so something like
start c:lacklist.xls 2315t
Once the blacklist.xls is opened I would like to have the macro to save the excel file as a csv file ignoring all the prompts and use the argurement 2315t as the directory to save it to on the j drive ie save to j:2315tlacklist.csv. Then close the workbook and continue with the rest of the commands in the bat file.
I'm guessing I have to use GetCommandLineA to read in the arguement but I can't find anything on the net that gives a clear explanation of how to use it.

MacRO: Check If WorkBook Open. If Not, Open It.
I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code I´m using for tranfering the sheet
If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete
'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook.
'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want.
