I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.
I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.
I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need
A prompt to open workbook Copy range (c8,d69) Close work sheet Paste special .value (c8,D69)
I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.
i have a button on my workbook1 that opens another workbook (lets call it workbook2) and automatically runs a macro on opening it. Once opened i have a button on workbook2 to close itself. I then go back to see workbook1. This all works but then when i click on the button to open the workbook2 again it opens but the macro does not run.
I am trying to copy the emf image object from "Book1" into the "test" workbook whilst the test workbook is open and Book1 is closed. The code I have put together currently sort of works, I mean that it copies the text data over but does not copy the object which is what I require.
I'm trying to write a macro that accomplishes the following:
" Book 1" is already open. The user runs a macro that lists all .xls files in directory "d:measurements" The user selects the desired file from the list or box the macro copies from this "book 2" " sheet 3", " range A6:I107 and pastes (values only) into "book 1", "sheet 5", "range A6" End of macro.
I want to accomplish this without opening the selected file (book 2)
how to go about taking data from a closed workbook with a range say A1 to A100, and place it in the work book i have open. I have 3 different sheets in the open work book but all the data is coming from the one sheet in the closed workbook.
I am trying to write code in the VB behind Excel that will allow me to navigate to an excel file (can be open or closed) and delete it. ie navigates to file xxx.xls at N:/xxx/xxx/ selects the file and then deletes it.
I need to import the data from a specific sheet (same named sheet on all closed workbooks) to a sheet in an open workbook. All the columns are identical in every workbook but the number of rows is variable, so the data from each subsequent workbook must be appended to the end of the current data.
Whenever a button is pressed, this macro will clear the sheet, then import the data starting in A3. The workbooks are in different folders but they all have the same name, so some sort of explorer window will probably be needed to actually select each file.
Is there code that will take certain data from one Excel sheet to another named file in a different place on the network? Example Copy cell aa47 from "Recent Faxes.xls" that sits in "correspondence" folder. Then paste into cell B25 "Current Documentation.xls" in the "Sales Contacts" folder
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
When running the following code for NSLookup in a module within the current workbook, it runs fine but when I put it in a XLAM file and try and use it as an addin I only get #NAME? as a result. I believe that that addin is installed properly because I have a second module with a sub routine in it (GetIPStatus) that is working, and when entering the command =NSLookup(A2) in a cell it shows up properly like it's an available function, but it does not seem to execute. Do I have to do anything special for a function to run as an addin?
In the various codes I am using AutoOpen, AutoClose, Workbook_BeforeClose and Workbook_BeforeSave Subs. BeforeClose and BeforeSave are in '_ThisWorkbook'; AutoOpen and AutoClose are in a Module. I also use Workbook_Open, Workbook_Activate and Workbook_Deactivate, also in _ThisWorkbook. I put message boxes thru out code to be sure code was running right. The Workbook_BeforeClose is running twice under certain condition (when a cell in active workbook sheet is blank ("")). I do not understand why it is running twice.
For condition where there is data in cell M10, this creates a whole other issue ( multiple running of mutliple various Subs) which I believe I should deal with in different thread/question.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Worksheets("PanelSched").Activate MsgBox "Test-Before close" If Range("M10") <> "" Then Dim PanelName As String PanelName = Range("M10").Text
I have an open workbook (A) and this is where the code should reside. I want to use VBA to copy the content of an entire worksheet from a closed workbook (B) to an existing worksheet in workbook A. How would you accomplish this?
I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.
However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:
Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.
Heres the code that I have got.
Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)
I have a macro on a particular workbook that runs when the workbook closes.
This runs fine when I close the workbook itself. If I happen to have other workbooks open and then I close EXCEL rather than an individual workbook, my macro that runs on close always runs when it is not the active workbook.
To put it another way, say that my 'run on close' macro is workbook 1. I also have workbooks 2 and 3 open as well. If workbook 3 is the active workbook and I choose to close Excel (and thus close all three workbooks), my 'run on close' macro runs straight away and, worse still, will run it on workbook 3 (my active workbook).
How can I stop the macro running until it is the active workbook in the closing chain, so that it only runs on the correct workbook? (workbook 1 in my example)
I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim dTime As Date dTime = Time If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _ dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then ImportData End If End Sub
This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?
Column D has a list with the choices OPEN, PENDING, CLOSED. I want Column E to automatically enter the date when someone choose closed in Column D. So in Cell E6. I wrote, IF(D6="Closed",Today(),"") . . . . .
It works, but wondering if E6 will keep changing the day every day to show the current day (bad) If so, how do it get it keep the closed date?
Okay, I have this code and it works very well - but it only works if my WORKBOOK is unprotected. I know how to Unprotect then Protect an ActiveSheet, but I can't figure out how to Unprotect then Protect my workbook when the macro runs..
Sub BLM_RENAME_SHEET() Dim WS As Worksheet Application.ScreenUpdating = False For Each WS In ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets
I've got a problem with this code, have been wracking my brains about. Here is the process I am trying to do:
1) Copy a range (a2:av1000) but (ideally) find the last populated row from a closed workbook (with a different password) 2) Create a new workbook and paste this data into it at A2 3) Close all the workbooks but only save the new one.
The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.
I have a group of Excel (2003) template files, each with a different name. When these files are opened they ask for certain information and save themselves as a unique name. Within these files are VBA routines and functions and, because these files basically do the same things, they have the same name. These routines exist in their own unique modules each with a different name. Unfortunately, in these files there are differences in the number of columns of information these routines act on so once they have been saved I need them to only act on their own columns only.
My problem is, when I have more than 1 of these files open in the same instance of Excel, I try to run a file using a control letter combination Ctrl-e and it sometimes runs the version of the macro in the wrong file. This leads to all kinds of strange thing happening. What I can do to force the correct macro to work in all instances?
I have a macro that copies data from several workbooks saved in a particular folder to a master workbook.
The problem is that this macro only works when it is included as a module in the master workbook. Unfortunately, I cannot ask the users of this macro to insert a module, copy the code and run it each time they want to consolidate the master workbook. Therefore, I wanted to use this code by including it in a Add-In that I already prepared. The problem is that this consolidation macro does not run when it is in an add-in. Create a code that I can include in a macro add in that would insert a module in the master file, include the code that I already have, run it and then delete the module? The add-in would be password protected.
I have an Excel file that contains formulas that reference external workbooks on a shared network. Each month, I copy the column of formulas over to the next month's column. Then, to update the file path, I highlight the new column and do a Find-and-Replace, swapping the previous month's name for the current month. This practice works fine. The only thing is ... the "Open File" promptbox appears for each formula where I updated the file path (i.e. and this can be hundreds instances!). I wind-up having to choose the file from the exact same file path. It is an unnecessary, and annoying extra step to take.
