VBA Macro To Follow Hyperlinks & Save Files To Another Location

Jan 16, 2010

I am attempting to write an Excel macro that will be stored in a file called MacroFile. The purpose of the macro is to

1. Follow a hyperlink to an Excel file saved in a SharePoint type enviroment
2. Save the file to my laptop directory My Documents.

Below is the code I have written. The code is following the hyperlink and saving a file but is the focus file is incorrect.

Here is what happens:

1. Open up MacroFile and run macro
2. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_1.xls is opened
3. File NewFile_1 is saved but contains the info from MacroFile
4. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_2.xls is opened
5. File NewFile_2 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_1
6. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_3.xls is opened
7. File NewFile_3 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_2

The files created are named correctly but have the wrong data in them. I need to know how to control which file is considered ActiveWorkbook.

Sub LinkAndCopy()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
'**** Copy LinkedFile_1..................

I've created a spreadsheet of clients and info; I want each client name to link to their specific folder on my computer for easy referencing.

VBA To Not Follow Hyperlinks

Oct 17, 2013

Is there anyway in VBA, that if a hyperlink is clicked on in the spreadsheet that it won't follow the link?

I need it to be a link in every other respect because I will be parsing the Text to Display, and utilizing the links address. I just would like to not have the link be clickable on the spreadsheet.

Save As Macro With Location Prompt But Fixed File Name ?

Dec 29, 2008

For a sheet that many non-expert users will use on different systems I need a macro that let's them save, print and send the results of their work. So I made a macro that makes a copy of only 1 sheet of the workbook and saves it with a given name to a given location. The problem is that I want a location prompt to ask the user where they want the file saved, while giving/suggesting them a fixed filename. A lot of different users will make and use their sheets so I need a certain naming policy to manage all the files. (date, location, etc)

Macro To Save Worksheets As Workbooks- Name And Location To Change Each Month

May 30, 2008

I have a workbook with approximately 30 worksheets. This workbook already has a massive macro that I've written. I'd like to write a code that will take a designated worksheet, check to see if there is data in cell A2, if so, save it as a new workbook.

The name of the workbook should be predetermined, for example "SIA April(Previous Month) 2008(Current Year) P-Card Import Template.xls"
The months and years will need to change.

The file to save it in will also change monthly- for example- G:PCard DirectoryCloses2008 ClosesApril(previous month) 2008(current year)

Save As Macro :: Tab Delimited Files

Oct 22, 2009

I use a macro that saves my activesheets in text(tab delimited).

I am trying to find how to save my worksheets as tab delimited files without having to open the notepad later, in order to press the backspace button. Just to clarify more, if a sheet has 15 rows of data, the tab delimited file will be created with 16. Is there a way to save the actual number of rows in the text file or this is a default operation in excel that cannot be changed in any way?

Open, Edit, Save Macro - Various Files

May 22, 2006

i've got the code below, and if you notice the directory and file line, I want a loop that'll do what the macro below does, but also for files j1k2-j1k200. I'm hoping there's a macro that'll be able to do this, as I don't want to have to copy, paste and edit the same macro below 200 times!

Application. ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating
Set wb = Workbooks.Open("C:Uni StuffStocks_J20j1ka.xls", False, False)
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
Range("B6:S6").Select
Selection.Replace What:="]w1", Replacement:="]w2", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
wb.Close True ' close the source workbook saving any changes
Set wb = Nothing ' free memory
Application.ScreenUpdating = True ' turn on the screen updating

Macro To Save Files In New Folder With Current Month And Date

I have this existing macro which saves each tab into a separate excel file. However, I'd like for it to also save them together in a new folder using the current month and date (named: QA Files May_05.06.14). The month and date would change according to current month/date.

Follow Hyperlink With Macro

Open A Series Of Files Through A List Of Hyperlinks

Feb 13, 2009

This code is supposed to open a series of files through a list of hyperlinks, run a macro then save and close. But at the minute it says it cannot find the Macro and error's.

The macro is in each file named and is named 'RefreshStats', if I open a file seperately I can run the macro fine, but it can't find it through this looping code.

Another thing I found though, is that if I put a blank Module in the main workbook (that contains the list) and call this macro 'RefreshStats' the looping works fine but based on the blank macro. So this code seems to want to look in the workbook its in for the macro.

I would like to list all files in a directory (display the full path) and make hyperlinks to all listed files at the same time.

I came accross the code below which works well for files in a directory:

Sub HyperlinksToDirectory()
' puts hyperlinks to each of the files in a directory of your choice
' into the active sheet starting at the active cell
Dim stDir As String
Dim stFile As String
Dim R As Range
Set R = ActiveCell
stDir = InputBox("Directory?", , Default:=CurDir())
stFile = Dir(stDir & "*.*")
Do Until stFile = ""
R.Hyperlinks.Add R, stDir & "" & stFile, , , stFile
Set R = R.Offset(1)
stFile = Dir()
Loop
R.CurrentRegion.Sort key1:=R, order1:=xlAscending, header:=xlNo

Save & Return To Last Location

Jun 9, 2006

User selects 'go to page B' on page A. They look at an object then click the object to go back to page A. Once back on page A they need to check data on page B, but in the same general location as where they just looked. This is over simplified, but pretty much sums up what I need to do. The code I have now is below, but keeps sending me to the last selection on my current page.

Public Sub SaveLocation(ReturnToLoc As Boolean)
Static WB As Workbook
Static WS As Worksheet
Static R As Range
If ReturnToLoc = False Then
Set WB = ActiveWorkbook
Set WS = ActiveSheet
Set R = Selection
Else
WB.Activate
WS.Activate
R.Select
End If
End Sub

Public Sub SetSaveLoc()
SaveLocation (False)
End Sub

Public Sub GetSaveLoc()
SaveLocation (True)

Excel 2010 :: Hyperlinks With JPG Files Using Internet Explorer Do Not Show Pictures On Win7

Jan 26, 2013

In Excel 2007, Hyperlinks in cells pointing to jpg files in a subfolder display with internet explorer. On my WinXP/Intnernet Explorer 8/Office 2007 system these links work fine.

When sending the excel and jpg files to another person with Win7/Office 10, jpg hyperlinks work and launch Internet Explorer but come up blank. (Hyperlinks to PDF files work fine and show up in Acrobat, just the jpg's come up blank in Explorer.)

Questions:
What is causing this, a setting in Explorer/Win7 or Excel?
Can I change Excel hyperlink default software to use something other than Explorer to display the jpg files?

Trusted Location - How To Save To And Access

Sep 29, 2008

managed to get a piece of code working to create unique sequential numbers for purchase orders, but only by "enabling all macros" which is apparently not recommended and could conceivably, as I understand it, leave a PC vunerable to viriuses contained in other imported files.

Please bear with me as I'm very new to anything other than basic Excel functions; macros were, until last week, something I didn't even know existed, let alone how to use them. Anyway, having got my macro working, I understand that the best thing to do is put it in a "trusted location" from where it will work automatically without requiring operator input (whilst still maintaining high overall security), rather than "enabling all macros", but I have a couple of issues with this.

Firstly, having created a folder in "my documents" as per the instructions, how do I save the macro there? What format should it be in? Surely not a word document? (as you can gather I am still really in the dark about all this). If not, what?

Secondly, how do I direct Excel to access and run the macro from this "trusted location" folder, rather than the already existing "module1"?
