VBA Code To Open File Using Variable Date?

May 29, 2014

I need a code which will open up a previous days file. I have the code to pick the correct file but I am stuck because the folders are multiple levels down to year then month.

Eg. Folder Name > YYYY > Month

So i need to have a code which can look in to the relevant folder based on the current date and then be able to open the file i need.

I.e. today is 29May so i need the code to open the 2014>May folder.

For 1st day of month I would need it to open last months folder I.e. 01June Open May folder

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).

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

Apr 24, 2014

I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls

Example: statistics_20140423_142754.xls

Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

Code To Open A Read Only .xl File

Jan 11, 2007

I have a read only excel file which I want to interrogate in another report.

I'm writing some code to open the file but I'm not sure how to get past the password/read-only prompt when opening the file.

My code is:

Workbooks.Open Filename:= "C:Sales2006.xls"

I assume it's possible to write some code to get past the prompt. I have checked the help files which do seem to indicate it's possible to specify a read only property but it doesn't say how.

Open File By Date

Nov 19, 2004

Probably not possible but can you write a macro to load a file which has a file name which always starts with Act2July followed by the date

i.e. Act2July191104.xls

but next friday it will be called Act2July261104.xls

This file is created by the network.

So can the macro pick up the Act2July part of the file name and then select the file dependent on when it was saved, so that the latest update is always loaded.

Date Not Being Updated When Open File

Apr 2, 2014

Previous to a PC meltdown a few months ago, when I opened my monthly customer list file the account date would automatically update to the current date. After the PC repair, reinstall of MS Office 2002 (same version as before the PC death) and copying of documents back to their old locations, I now have to update this manually for all accounts each time I open it. I have searched through the options and customize menus but there is no mention of this setting. Before, it just did it from day one (5 years ago) without any setup.

How do I get back the old auto-date update preference?

Open File That Changes Name Every Day Based On Today Date

Apr 16, 2014

I have the current code that opens our raw data file and copys it into my workbook. However it now turns out the file is saved everyday as a new file with todays date on the end. Here is my current code:

Sub CopyRaw()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Sheets("PROD_SELECTION").Visible = True
Sheets("PROD_SELECTION").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

[Code] .....

Todays file is now in the name "I:SalesSales and MarketingMarketing List Product Selection Details (20140416)"

I know i can do this somehow using the Date function but the closest I have got is using

"YEAR(NOW())&RIGHT(MONTH(NOW())+100,2)&DAY(NOW())"

To generate todays date like so: "20140416" but I dont know how to get that into my code correctly so i open the file with that on the end.

Select / Open File Based On Today Date In Sheet Name

Sep 15, 2014

I managed to create some code that will connect to a workbook and take the data from there.

It is kind of SQL mixed with VBA. I just got this by finding it in google (I don't have the link handy now).

What the file does, is it will take 2 columns from a workbook called "Test.xls" and then take out 2 columns "Name" and "ID".

The only thing is, this is only a test and not the actual files I need to open. the files are always saved on the same folder, but the name is the day of the export of it. So when I export a file today, it will get 2014.09.10.xls. The sheet (only 1) will also get that name.

How could I change the below code that it will take that file based on today's date and read from the sheet with today's data?

VB:
Sub sbADO()
Dim sSQLQry As String
Dim ReturnArray
Dim Conn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim mrs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim DBPath As String, sconnect As String
'DBPath = ThisWorkbook.FullName

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Open XLSM File Based On Latest Date Found In Filename

Feb 11, 2013

I'm on excel 2010 and I have a small group excel files I open everyday. Most of the files are static in name and location. I've got a macro created to open those files, which works fine with workbooks.open and the file path.

There are two report files I want to incorporate into my macro of workbooks to open. The files are created weekly and the files names have the following format: "Report Name (YYYY-MM-DD).xlsm". I don't want to use the file's last modified date because older files may get edited after the more recent ones are created. The files are also not always created on the same day, so the solution needs to be flexible enough to not refer to a specific day of the week or anything.

Macro open an excel file based on the latest date found in filename.
