VBA Code For Opening File With Variable Version Number In File Name?
Jan 29, 2014
I have a file that I save with a new version number each time I make major changes. The file name currently is: "Telephony Equipment Inventory v26 (Summary).xlsm". The "26" is the variable number. give me the vba code to ensure I open the file with the highest version number?
I have a file that is on a server. When I open it on my excel it opens an old version of it and not the newest copy. If I open it on a coworkers computer, it does open the correct newer version. How do I change this?
I am using the below to open a text file and copy the used range to my working workbook. The opening of the file makes the code slow and and also it may be bcoz i am trying to paste 11800 lines of data from one file to another.
Also i can see the flickering of the screen when the files are open. How to make the code faster and more efficient.
Code: Sub readSimFile() Application.ScreenUpdating = False '//code// Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
I have code in VBA that takes a source Excel file and parses it to multiple re-formatted worksheets. Each formatted worksheet is different depending on a variable in the source. There are n of each type of data (1:n Water Sources, 1:n Water Treatment, 1:n Water Storage). Each item needs a copy of a blank re-formatted worksheet appended to the end of the existing data-type worksheet. For example: Water Source #2 is appended to the bottom of Water Source #1 on the same worksheet.
Currently, I am opening the blank re-formatted workbook each time an additional variable of same type is found in the source file. Meaning, if there are 8 Water Sources, I am opening and closing the blank re-formatted workbook 7 times to copy a blank Water Source to the bottom of the Water Source worksheet and then populate the data. AND if there are 3 Water Treatment, I would open and close the blank formatted workbook 2 more times to copy a blank Water Treatment to the bottom of the Water Treatment worksheet. The same goes for Water Treatment.
Obviously, a huge waste of resources and performance. I would rather open the blank re-formatted workbook once (first time an additional worksheet is needed), use the worksheets as needed, and close it at the end.
Attached is my current, working code of the above.
How should I re-write it to check if the blank workbook is already open use it, if not open it?
Code: Sub Add_Facility(ByVal Worksheet_Name, Copy_Range, Max_Limit) Dim Last_Row As Integer Dim Source_Range As Range Dim Dest_Range As Range Dim wkb As Workbook
how to get version number of the .dll file (in the path C:program files....) using VBA code. The properties of that .dll file has a tab named "Version". so i need the version number displayed on that tab.
how I could amend the following code so that my target worksheet includes file versions? The worksheet range "Folder" contains a string specifying the target folder and the worksheet range "IncludeSubFolders" is either TRUE or FALSE. I can trap FilePath, FileName, FileSize and DateModified fine but not File Version (I'm working with DLL libraries).
Dim iRow As Long Sub ListFiles() iRow = Range("DatabaseStart").Offset(1, 0).Row Call ListMyFiles(Range("Folder"), Range("IncludeSubFolders")) End Sub
The other day, I had posted a macro, which copies one of the sheets from a workbook, on to a blank sheet, and then saves it with a name obtained from the value of cell E7. I required certain modifications to it, before I could implement it.
You will find it here and the code looks like this:
I'm creating a template xlsm file that has built in marcos. This file will be used by the Engineer as a template, where they fill in the data, and then send it to the team. when the case in finished, they will use clear data macro.
The Problem I want the template to have a macro runs with startup of the file that checks for the lastest template in a network folder (shared folder where they will have read only access). If the used file is the latest one, OK. If not, give a custom msg with the location on the network.
I recorded what I wanted but don't know how to generalise it so regardless of sheet name it can be sorted instead of specifically looking for "leanne final test" worksheet and sorting it by precise cells.
I have starred the section out so you don't have to focus on the rest of the code. Initally I ask for the file to be opened using WeeklyFN, would I need to use it again somehow ?
I am using excel 2010 on windows 8. I load a file which has been sent to me via e-mail and save it with an upgraded name, I then do a large amount of data input and save the file again, I do this regularly and even test load it at times to check it has saved, finally I save and close the file and then on reloading I discover the version I have is the first one I saved! all the work I have done on it has disappeared! I also sometimes find random .tmp files with non-sensical names in the folder to which I have saved, but I do not have the rights to open these .tmp files.
Is it possible to write vba code that will generate a text file with ALL changes that were made to an excel file. Ex. If Cell A17 = "Monday, June 4, 2012" and a user updates Cell A17 to "N/A", I would like to know what the value was before and after the udpate was made.
I have a spreadsheet where I want to require certain fields to be completed then I want to have that file auto emailed. I have learned that I do need to have the file saved before sending otherwise the data will not appear in the email, so with this I want to have the file temporarily saved emailed then the temp file deleted.
Here is the code I have so far but it errors on the blue text, I did change the TempFileName from = "Copy of " & wb1.Name & " " & Format(Now, "dd-mmm-yy h-mm-ss") to = [C16] & "_" & [B6] & "_" & [D6]
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() If Range("B6").Value = "" Or _ Range("d6").Value = "" Or _ Range("f6").Value = "" Or _ Range("E9").Value = "" Or _
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.
In order to get inventory data from our Incode database, I've been creating an output file with the extension .IRP Thinking that excel would not bring in this data from the .IRP file directly, I would then create a txt file of it with notepad. I've recently discovered that I can bring it in directly from the .IRP
The file being created is in this format:
IN Stock Status Report - 6385.IRP
The number portion, 6385 in the name will vary everytime I generate a new report. However the text portion will not.
Currently, I've recorded a macro the bring in the data to my excel spreadsheet.
But it will only bring in data for the set filename.
I am trying to do something simple but not quite sure how to do it. I am using the GetImportFileName and then selecting information of one sheet from that file and copying to another workbook. I need to know how to then get back to the file I have opened to search the next sheet and so on. The problem I have is with this line.
Sub GetImportFileName() Dim Finfo As String Dim FilterIndex As Integer Dim Title As String Dim FileName As Variant
' Set up list of file filters Finfo = "All Files (*.*),*.*"
' Display *.* by default FilterIndex = 5
' Set the dialog box caption Title = "Select a file to Import"
' Get the Filename FileName = Application.GetOpenFilename(Finfo, FilterIndex, Title)
I have some VBA code that allows the user to open a linked powerpoint presentation from an Excel workbook. It works well but it does not ask the the user to update links so if the Excel book has changed the powerpoint stays the same. I am very new to VBA so I tend to copy things that work but don't always know why! Anyone out there know how to get it to update links automatically or at least ask the user to do so? Here is the code:
I would like to open a certain file everyday. However each day this file is created and named with the date, for example Production_FixYYYYMMDD.csv, in VBA how do I accomplish this? The alternative I could think of is to create a .bat file to copy that file over to a separate directory and rename it Production_Fix.csv and just use that, but if that batch file fails to run that would cause issues.
Any idea why a file in my XLSTART folder does not open when I start Excel?
I had a cell in a file (not one of the files in XLSTART folder) that was refered to by thousands of other cells. I clicked on Trace Dependents and Excel then spent the next 10 minutes trying to point to all the cells. I eventually gave up and used the Windows Task Manager to close Excel. Ever since then Excel doesn't open 1 of the 3 files I have in the XLSTART folder.
I have a 14.3 MB xlsb file that I am trying to open with no success as it just hangs. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the data out of there? I would like to be able to get the data to a pivot and copy the pivot to another file to try and reduce the load on one file. I tried to import to Access but was told I was using a file version before 2007, which is impossible since it is a xlsb file.
I am having a problem that shouldn't be that hard to fix, but I can't seem to figure it out. I have a file in the xlstart folder, called "personal.xls" with macros in it. The security level is at low, it isn't on the disabled list, and it won't automatically open when excel opens. If I double click on it, it opens. It just won't open when excel is first started. Is there any way to correct this?
I have a list of expenses on a certain project. I allocate each line to a certain type of expense by using a dropdown list. When re-opening the file, the first few lines were good: dropdownOK.jpg
But after a few lines, the dropdown range changed, although it keeps the selection I made in the previous version: dropdown_wrong.jpg
I have seen that the data validation list changed to =$A$2:$A$17 instead of my separate list =Dropdown!$A$2:$A$17 but cannot understand why excel has made this twist. Each month I update this list, which means adding lines to the list, both inserting them at the bottom, as in between other lines. I can't see any pattern, because it kept the range of the first 6 lines, when the previous version already had 50 lines or so. It does not only happen to the inserted lines, for example.
I want to use a macro to open an existing file on my c drive where the reference to that file is contained in a cell.
E.g. In my sheet, the cell A1 contains the following text "C:Documents and SettingsTest". Therefore the file I want to open using a macro will be Test.xls.
However the file I wish to open (and therefore the reference text in cell A1) could change (and it could also change to be a word document) so it needs to be able to adapt when a new valid file (and document type) reference is entered into the cell.
Also, as an aside, when I want to change the file referred to in A1, the easiest way I've found is to find the file I want in windows explorer, go to properties and copy the file reference and then paste it into A1. However the reference (from the properties tab) seems to miss the ".xls" or ".doc" at the end (see above). Is this an issue? If yes, then I'm happy to manually type the .xls or .doc extension at the end.
