A client of ours has one particular file that has some very strange behavior as described below. This only occurs with the one particular file and the behavior is consistent across different PC's in both their office and ours. All other Excel files in both offices work fine. Here's what happens:
- you can use Windows Explorer to copy the file between drives without
a problem (as expected)
- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then save it back to that
same drive with either the same file name or a different file name, the
file works fine (as expected)
- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then do a "Save As" to
save it to a *different* drive with either the same file name or a
different file name (in default .xls format), the new file causes
errors in Excel every time you open it as per below (weird!)
- even if you do a "Save As" and choose a different format eg Excel
97-2003 or Excel 95, the error behavior is consistent (weird!).............
I am trying to open a website, then for excel to download the csv file, then for it to save it in a specific folder under a specific name and file format (excel).
I am successful at opening the website with the following code, but how to do the rest.
Sub Searchez() Dim IE As Object Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") IE.Navigate "http://quote.morningstar.ca/Quicktakes/stock/keyratios.aspx?t=clwrÂ®ion=USA&culture=en-CA&ops=clear" 'load web page google.com IE.Visible = True While IE.Busy DoEvents Wend
I have a folder that has a bunch of text files in it with numeric names (they are store numbers 2, 3, 165, 188, etc...). I need to open those files (in excel), run a macro on them (this portion of the macro has already been created), and then save them with the same name as the txt file but in an xls format and close. It would be great to have the whole folder process automatically but I am willing to start small. Further, I'd like it to not ask for a filename, and I don't want to see the SaveAs dialog box. So far I have been able to get the macro to run through the my processing of the text file all the way to the SaveAs portion, but the code in my macro opens the SaveAs box and puts the filename of the txt file in the file name box in quotes with the txt extension. Below is the code.
What I would like to do is to open an excel workbook from a bat file in dos with one arguement.
so something like
start c:lacklist.xls 2315t
Once the blacklist.xls is opened I would like to have the macro to save the excel file as a csv file ignoring all the prompts and use the argurement 2315t as the directory to save it to on the j drive ie save to j:2315tlacklist.csv. Then close the workbook and continue with the rest of the commands in the bat file.
I'm guessing I have to use GetCommandLineA to read in the arguement but I can't find anything on the net that gives a clear explanation of how to use it.
i always receive 200 mb file. which i has, around 10 sheets , with pivot tables and formulas.
i have to open this file update refresh and save as this file, which i am doing via vba.
however the challenge for me here is though i set xl calculation to manual at the begining and xl calculation to automatic at the end. Though i used this code, its taking close to 5 mins to complete this via Vba.
I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.
In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.
I have a large Excel 2007 file, around 60.000KB. 54.000KB are due to one of the worksheets where I have 8760rows x 160columns with data. The calculation time is not a problem, it is very fast, it only takes 2/3 seconds. The problem is when I open or save the file, it takes around 2 minutes... it is not too much, but it becomes too long when one has to open and save it several times. It there any trick to decrease the time when openning or saving an excel file??
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I would like to add some icons on the left side of excel open file pane to faciliate my work. Because i need to load some files under the same folder many times a day. Does anybody know how to do that? I've seen people has more icons on the pane before. The defaut setting has only 'History', 'My Documents', 'Favorites', 'Desktop' and ' My nutwork places' on it.
VBA coding for automatically saving an excel file as another file using the current date as part of the file name together with "32ga" as a constant add-in. I also what this macro to run at a particular time of the day let say 00:20hrs. The excel file i want to save as is always open . It has data that changes every 24-hrs.
What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.
All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.
I want to create a macro that will “open the look in list” and stop so I can pick a file to open. I’ve tried to use “record a macro” and “ctrl-o”, but the record a macro won’t stop until I pick a file or cancel the file list. I also tried to use “o” in the short cut key box
I am trying to assign a macro to the Print button on the Standard Toolbar. Basically I want that button to print the number of pages I've specified in a cell, but I still want to be able to use the 'File/Print...' option if I need to.
I did try to solve this issue in an earlier post, but this exact problem remained unsolved. For more information
I have some weird problems that I don't know how to fix (or even explain). Mostly, my code is good and works well in all my spreadsheets but I find myself trying to debug stuff that should be working, but isn't working 100% as it should.
For example, I have a cell that counts information using =NB($A$8:$A$1000) BTW: NB is COUNT in french, just so you know...
The weird problem is, it seems to skip the first 10-15-20 rows; it doesn't count them. So the total in the cell should be around 150, but it's 129?... Can someone give me an alternative code to count cells?
What is weird about it is that I would think that the numbers after the RJ would be in numeric order but it seems to be treating them as codes. So, instead of RJ 41, then RJ 45, it goes on with a series of things that start with RJ 41. Is it normal for this to happen, or is there a way to change it so that it goes 41, 45, 47, 48, then 416, 420, etc.
The cell output is formatted this way; "Query for SP500 9:30-4:15 EST This query has a rating of"
And thats how the text shows if you copy and paste it BUT in the cell there is a square box at the end of each of the first two lines. Is the vbCrLf causing that? If so what should I be using instead so the text in the cell shows exactly like the bolded text above
I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".
When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:
Dim myname As String myname = Application. GetOpenFilename
I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook. The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then parse off to get just the workbook name.
Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.
Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:
myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")
I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.
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 _
