As above i have a macro which opens a workbook which is on a network drive. This works fine for my multiple users...however i have discovered that if they do not have the drived mapped with the same drive letter at the start...it will throw up an error advsing that the file does not exist. Is there any way to by pass this.
Ex - "TestFile.xls"
File is stored in "E:NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls"
However, some users have access to this file and it is mapped as E:, but some users have been mapped as F: The advisors who have been mapped as F: cannot access the file. Is the VBA/Macro smart enough to bypass the drive letter and just search the rest of the past...NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls".
I currently have a password secured excel file on my departs Q drive, which everyone can access unfortunately only 1 person can edit at a time. I tried to turn it into a workbook so we could all edit it at the same time but now some of the other users can't access the file at our other buildings throughout the county. This is for excel 2010. And I did select the share workbook, and allow multiple users to edit box. everything else is unchanged.
I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.
This is the path: [url]
So the command is this: Workbooks.Open [url]
Links are not actual links
So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.
when i put a file across a network, it should be shared among all the users, but it appears as read only file and the option of track changes in the tools function is disabled. However, when i open an excel file in a stand alone pc, and use the track changes option, i get the file as (shared) as the header. what is the significane or meaning of this word "shared" in a stand alone pc?
The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
I am using the below code (i have combined different bits of code which i found on these forums) to open a new workbook, copy all the data in it and paste it into Sheet2 in the active workbook . Also, i want the data to be pasted on the next empty row as there is already data in Sheet2. The data that is being copied and pasted has the same format and it is going to be repeated many times.
The problem i am having is that it is not offsetting the data to the next empty row - i think it is a simple change but i can't seem to get there :s
Also, the code is currently selecting all of the data from the workbook that i open - is there a way i can select all of the data, excluding the first row (the first row contains the headings which i already have in Sheet2 in the active workbook).
I have created userform and it works fine. Following code assigned to 'SUBMIT' button in userform - works fine. I am trying to include code where certain data from userform is also copied to workbook2 ( of course without opening it)- as marked in red...below
I have a spreadsheet that data gets exported to from a software program. There is information such as customer name, part number, inquiry number, etc that I'd like to use to develop a log of all my estimates I create for parts. I'd like excel to take the cells I select and insert them into certain cells in the other workbook and automatically save that workbook. This will create a log of all my estimates where I can then link the full estimate to the log. The information will have to go in the next available row. Is there any way I can accomplish this without having to open the other workbook and save the work book each time?
I have just added some code to make my workbook close after it has been inactive for 5 minutes...this works fine except it opens itself up again after 5 minutes. If I select 'Enable Macros' it closes immediately and if not, it will stay open.
Here is all of the code I put in for the auto shut down:
I currently have a workbook that, when opened, automatically kicks off a macro (with a call from the Workbook_Open event in ThisWorkbook). I was to run that same called macro from a custom button that I put on a toolbar in Excel itself...which is pretty straight forward. However, when I do this, the macro kicks off twice...once from the button and once because the called macro's workbook opens and kicks off the macro with the Workbook_Open event.
So, what I was thinking was...is there a way to tell if a workbook is being opened by another workbook (by calling it's macro) or whether is was opened "normally (manually)"?
My friend emailed me a workbook. When she or I open the workbook, it opens two instances of it. Is there an option in excel that is causing it to do this? I need to send this a client and I do not want this to happen on their side.
I have a workbook that consists of 3 sheets, it's a template I use. Once I am done filling out sheet 3, I save as a new workbook. When I have to go back to the template workbook it always opens on sheet 3. Is there anyway that once I open the template workbook it will open on sheet 1?
I have created an Add-in for use across the business, the add in calculates financial impact based on figures that are stored on the shared drive.
The addin currently opens the workbook, and sets the variables to figures contained in the workbook - and then closes the workbook.
To roll this out to the business - I need to get the add-in to open the workbook as read Only, so that it will allow multiple users to access at once. I have set to open as read only in the past - however this prompts me to save the workbook as something else.
Is there any way I can get this to just open as read only, do what it needs to - and then close; without having the option to save as something else?
I hope this is not a violation of any of the security rules. At work, we are wanting to track when users open up a workbook by sending an email (not my idea). I have the email on open part working just fine, I wanted to know if there is an option that it does not save the sent message in the sent folder?
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Run "EmailMacro" End Sub Sub EmailMacro() Dim OutApp As Object Dim OutMail As Object Dim strbody As String Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0) strbody = "User xx has opened workbook" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _ "..." ...................
I'm attempting to write a macro (in Excel) that uses a path that is given in one of the fields of the worksheet to open a workbook and get find a field to return to the original worksheet. I have working code to pull the information from a worksheet within the same workbook, but I can't seem to get it to work with an external worksheet. Can someone assist me in getting this to work?
I have attached my original code that works, so all I need to do is translate it to open the external workbook and worksheet instead of using the local worksheet. This is pretty simple right?
Public Function GetRate(strClassification As String, strContractNo As String) As Integer
I have a workbook which has a macro to loop round refreshing its data every half an hour and each time the refresh is performed the file gets saved. This file is opened by one user in the morning, and left open with the macro running to carry out the refreshing throughout the day. This workbook is then also opened by a number of users as read only who interrogate (but do not update) the data in the spreadsheet as part of their work. Periodically, they close and re-open their copy of the workbook to ensure they have the most up-to- date version open.
To let them know when a new version is available (i.e. when the refresh has been performed and the file re-saved), I have some code which compares the last saved date/time of the file they are using with the date and time of the file they loaded the file from, and displays a message when they values are different. I have, however, been unable to develop a macro which properly 're-loads' the workbook. I have been able to get the file closed and the latest version opened (through a 'ThisWorkbook.Open' statement). However, when the new version susbsequently opens, none of the open events are triggered, nor is the Auto_Open macro executed. This is a major problem, as the spreadsheet relies on this processing being performed for the file to properly work. (I know that macros are enabled (I get the 'enable macros' prompt in the course of the updated version being opened, and can run macros once the file has been opened).)
I want to be able to launch code in an add-in to perform a check when other workbooks are opened by the user. Code in the Open event for the add-in launches when Excel opens, not when each workbook is opened
I would like to something arranged where a macro I currently have assigned to a button is automatically run once the workbook is opened. The reason being because I would it to be current with todays date. I have done the following and it results in nothing I still need to click the button to get the macro to work.
to open a workbook at a specific time. I want to beable to flip my computer on at 8:50am, go grab some coffee and then at 9:00:00am have my workbook open and performing tasks. Besides turning on my computer, I dont want to have to open or activate anything prior to having my workbook open. However if there is code to turn on my computer from a sedative state that would be great too.
