Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files

Jul 5, 2007

I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.

1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.

2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it

3. Open the file in the associated application

4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file

5. Repeat steps 2-4

DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Close #1

Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
wend
Close #2

I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems

I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.

with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.

I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.

Jun 2, 2007

My question is if it's possible to change the code and make it work faster. When I change the ComboBox I wait about 1-3 seconds for about 40 items in the Worksheet. I still didn't test it with more items. Here's the

Using VBA To Open And Close Source File

Feb 1, 2010

I am working with a bunch of files to do a dashboard. I have the main file which shows end results and what my users will see "Dashboard". I have about 10-15 files which I export weekly from MS Access. and I have the "Dashboard Data" file. In this file I have a sheet which links all the information for the files exported from MS Access. In here I have named ranges and dynamic ranges plus additional columns created to look up information in other tables. I use this file as my source data for my Dashboard File so that I can reduce the size of the actually dashboard. Dashboard Data file is about 5.5 mb and my Dashboard is 300kb. I have 12 branches that need to view the data over a radius of a hundred miles so the smal file are better.

My problem: I can get the Dashboard Data file to update without opening all the 10-15 other files. I cant however make the Dashboard file update without opening the Dashboard Data file. I have it to auto update without prompting but its still tells me that it cannot update. I was wondering if there is some VBA code I could use that would work like this:

I open the Dashboard File, Dashboard Data file opens so that Dashboard file updates and then close Dashboard Data File so that the user never has to see the Dashboard Data file. I dont want them to see it or have access to it.

Open And Close File With No Extension

Feb 21, 2013

I opened a file, by file I mean a "file" with no extension that has commas separating it.

So I recorded a macro to open up the file and this works fine.

How do I close it? I tried

wk1 = ThisWorkbook.Name 'Main Worksheet
...
Workbooks(wk1).Activate
ActiveWindow.Close

But the problem is that "wk1" is not set equal to the name, probably because the file is not an excel file, it has no extension.

Macro To Close One Excel File And Open Another?

Jul 18, 2014

I have created several excel files as I cannot open them all at once since they are too large. So I have to open one excel file whilst closing another.

part1
part2
part3
part4
part5

I want a macro that opens the excel file part 1 and part 2. Then it should close part 1 and after closing part 1 it should open part 3. Once part 3 is open, part 2 should be closed and when part 2 is closed part 4 should open. When part 4 is open, then part 3 should be closed and part 5 should open.

Auto Close Workbook After Showing Form For 30 Seconds

Mar 24, 2007

I have the following code that displays a form at a user defined time and if the user does not press "Stop" then the workbook saves and closes. The user can press stop then the workbook remains open.

Here is what I have where:
Admin_Auto_Shutdown = Yes or No
Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time = 3:34pm or user defined time (This doesn't seem to work??)

'Auto Shutdown CloseandSave
If UCase(wb.Worksheets("Admin"). Range("Admin_Auto_Shutdown").Value) = "YES" Then
Application .OnTime TimeValue("Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time"), "AutoShutdown"
End If

Sub AutoShutdown()

Application.OnTime TimeValue("Admin_Auto_Shutdown_Time"), "AutoShutdown"

Auto_Shutdown_Form.Show

End Sub

Now, my question is about a timer that I can show on a form. When the form is displayed I would like to give the user 30 seconds to press stop (and keep the workbook open) or to press proceed and save and close or to not do anything and the workbook would close and save when the timer reaches zero.

Code for user form which is missing most everything...

Private Sub Halt_Click()
'If user whats to continue without closing
Auto_Shutdown_Form.Hide
End Sub

Private Sub Proceed_Click()
'If user whats to save and close

Auto_Shutdown_Form.Hide

How do I add a timer to this code where it will run this at the end of the timer?

Auto_Shutdown_Form.Hide

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
With ThisWorkbook
.Saved = True
.Close
End With

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:

1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row)
2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders
3) Put the folder name into I2
4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this)
5) Close the text file
6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)

Execute A Data Download Every Ten Seconds Until There Is A Value In C11 And Then Send An Email And Close

Nov 13, 2008

All this macro is supposed to do is execute a data download every ten seconds until there is a value in C11 and then send an email and close.

What seems to be happening is that it downloads, emails, closes... but then in ten seconds the sheet reappears and does it all again.

Macro Close Without Saving Reopen

Jan 6, 2010

Using excel 2003, I have a ss that uses filters and sorting. I can get to the data I want but must reopen the workbook if I want to start over and extract different information. I tried installing this VBA:

Sub CloseMe()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:10"), "OpenMe"
ThisWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

Sub OpenMe()
MsgBox "I'm Back!"
End Sub

This is my first time at inserting VBA. Usually I just use keystroke macros. I have set my Excel VB Book options to: Option Explicit double clicked the sheet I was using and under general inserted the code, closed Ctrl+Q, saved workbook. When I reopened and tried to use it all I get is I'm Back! nothing else happens. One time it actually ran and reopened but it appeared that the workbook was saved before closing because it was still sorted. What I need is it to completely unsorted as it is when I first open it so I can start over.

Automatically Open New Workbook After 1st Workbook Open 4 Seconds

Nov 6, 2009

I have a presentation that I open from a short-cut. After the "Welcome Page" is opened, I want to open a second workbook in a new instance of Excel after 4 seconds.

I think that I can open the new instance of excel, but I don't know how to activate the macro after 4 seconds.

I'm sure there is a function someplace for this that can be used in a macro.

Then, after the second Workbook is opened, I want the Welcome Page "Workbook" closed, leaving the second Worbook open.

Saving Cell Contents To XML File Saved As Current Workbook File Name

Dec 12, 2012

I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.

I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.

Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.

Code:
Sub Test()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim wb As Workbook
Set Rng = Range("A1:A2")
Set wb = Workbooks.Add
With wb
Rng.Copy

VBA For Bypassing Replace File Prompt When Saving As A File In Macro

Jul 7, 2008

I am setting up a "save as" macro that saves a file by replacing another file in a folder. Even though the macro has been recorded by approving the replacement (the prompt appears "the file --- already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"), when I run the macro, I am again prompted about replacing the file. Is it possible to avoid the prompt so the file is automatically saved by replacing the named file?

Moving Columns Of Data Into Another File And Saving File With New Filename?

Aug 30, 2013

I was wondering if there is a way to write a macro that will take an excel file that I have called Alldata and then have it copy the first two sheets to a new workbook named something else( FullSparameter_0) and then copy the name of the third and fourth sheet into the new FullSparameter_0 workbook and then copy column A-E from sheet dB Alldata.xls and paste it into the FullSparameter_0.xls workbook in the same dB sheet in the same spot. And do the same thing with the Phase Sheet. i know this sounds confusing, but im really new to the VBA stuff.

I just need 15 different files from the original Alldata.xls that will be named FullSparameter_0, FullSparameter_1, .., FullSparameter_14. but each file will have the same two first sheets, Setup Information and Cal Verification, and the same last two sheet names, dB and Phase, but then in the dB and phase sheets, it will copy over the next four columns of data. so in FullSparameter_0 it will have column A-E from sheet dB in Alldata.xls in the dB sheet in FullSparameter_0 (Same with the Phase Sheets). Then in FullSparameter_1 it will have column A and Columns F,G,H and I (for dB and Phase). In fullSparameter_2 it will have column A and then J,K,L and M. Each FullSparameter_X will have the exact same first two sheets and then the other columns for the last two sheets will be pasted into columns A-E in dB and Phase.
