I have just received an eMail from my accountant and here file name extension is .xlsx. I have never seen this before. Can someone tell me why the x on the end of the extension? . Also, when it opens, a Message Box is displayed: File Conversion in process.
I am running into an issue were a file may be saved as .xls or .xlsm instead, but I still need to have the macro open it. Is there a way to adjust the above code, or other code for that matter, that will allow my macro to open any of these extensions?
How can I save worksheet from existing workbook as a new workbook with extension .xls or .xlsx depending on the version of Excel on which the original was opened and no matter the extension of original?
My code that I was trying to create all above does not work, because even if I am using Excel 2007, 2010 or 2013 it will still be saving only as .xls.
I am facing this error problem in my laptop. Error: Excel can't open the file (name).xlsx because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of file.
When every i am trying to open all the excel files are giving me this error. I try many software and change the extension. But no result. Same error message is coming. Really if its not fixed i will lose too much important data.
I have to download files from a database and save them in .xls format (the only format permitted to export from the database)
Given an open excel wb saved to my hard drive (or network drive) in non .xlsx format. (most likely .xls)
Switch the file to .xlsx format without loosing the open file. (re-open ok).
Caveats: -Don't want two files -Dnn't want to have the file name changed (except for the extension). -Don't want to remain in compatibility mode. -Don't want to wait a long time. -Don't want to have possibility of file corruption.
I just want to take my non .xlsx file and then, turn into a .xlsx file. (if I save the file as .xlsx I am still in compatibility mode until I re-open the file. I also will have two files---very annoying).
I am trying to use dir() in a While...wend to get a specific list of files to process, but I want the list to only include those with a .xls extension, not those ending in .xlsx. It seems that the file filter ".xls" doesn't exclude those files with a ".xlsx" extension.
Sample code demonstrating the problem (will show the problem if there is at least one cycle that meets a*.xls and one that meets a*.xlsx).
Is there a workaround to this at the dir() level? Or do I need to go ahead and open the file and test its contents?
Sub TestDir() On Error GoTo Nofile 'trap cancel, X-out of the dialog, etc. With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen) .AllowMultiSelect = False .InitialFileName = "a*.xls" .Show GetDir = .SelectedItems(1) End With On Error GoTo 0 'reset error handler
I am currently using some of Mr. Excels macro coding to firstly create consecutive invoice numbers and secondly save the new file into a destination folder and clear out the cells that have had data in them. This part seems to work flawlessly. I have noticed though that the new .xlsx file has the macro buttons viewable on it and to me looks unprofessional if i send out an invoice to a customer that has the buttons shown. So my resolution is to export the file as a PDF rather than the .xlsx.
My code is as follows
Code: Sub NextInvoice() Range("H13").Value = Range("H13").Value + 1 Range("B24:H43").ClearContents End Sub
Sub SaveInvWithNewName() Dim NewFN As Variant ' Copy Invoice to a new workbook
how to run my Macro over multiple (about 60) .xlsx files. I have been looking around, but haven't quite got anything working yet.
I have all the files in the same folder with similar names (i.e. Subject_01.xlsx, Subject_02.xlsx, etc.).
What I'd like is:
*open Subject_01 *run script (some calculations, copy/pasting, my script for this is working fine) *save file under a different name (i.e. Subject_01_processed.xlsx) *close file *again for Subject_02, Subject_03, etc.
Additionally, I have a second question: after I have the processed .xlsx files, I'd like to copy some cells from each .xlsx file (e.g. A1-H1) to a new file. There, I'd like the data from Subject_01 to for example be in cells A1-H1, from Subject_02 in cells A2-H2, etc.
I have attempted to alter this example to simply check if the cells are not blank by replacing the "X" with "<>", but I get errors in the SMALL function--it looks like the IF statement is just returning an array with all of the values set to FALSE, and none of the values in the array call out a location of the next filled cell.
How could you alter your fixed XLSX file to check for non-blank cells instead of "X" specifically?
When I prepare a file with macro's (to be used by other people), I save this file as a template with macro's with the extension *.xltm (template with macro). Therefore no one can overwrite my file. These other people can open this template (e.g. double-click, but not file-open). But when these people save this file, Excel automatically saves it as a normal Excel-file with the extension *.xlsx. Ok, a message is seen after pressing <enter> or clicking Save, but does normal users know, what they have to do then?
If I'm making a template with macro's, I want Excel to have this file saved as a file with macro's. Whatever did I make a file with macro's for? Is this a bug or is it done on purpose?
Description:The chart shown in the file is a picture using the Camera Tool. The real chart is in the worksheet "Chts". When using the dropdown & radio button, the chart is supposed to change accordingly.
Problem 1:The picture from the camera tool seem to be blurry. The lines also seem thicker. Any rectifications for this?
Problem 2:If I save this file as "xlsx", the chart will not change dynamically when the dropdown is changed.
I have a sheet I am working on that was given to me by a supplier and for example the cell in A1 is '2008_world_soccer'. How do I add '.jar' to the end of the filename bearing in mind the filenames are not the same length in each cell. So it would then read '2008_world_soccer.jar' or ''2008_world_soccer_GB_test.jar' etc. Any ideas that would saving me having to edit and type .jar at the end everytime for over a thousand records?
I am thinking of an extension. Every time it finds a empty row where it pastes in. Is it possbile to insert as many rows as the range object is before we paste in the range?
Ex: If the source sheet has 10 rows that's going to be pasted into the destination sheet. I want first to insert 10 rows into destination sheet at "*" and then paste in the 10 rows from the source sheet.
I am having an issue getting rid of the ".xls" when my workbooks save automoatically. Here is the code i am using: ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs (ActiveWorkbook. Name & "_" & NextMonth). The program works great except it will save as something like "Example.xls_Jan07". THe only problem is that ".xls" in there is driving me crazy. All i want is Example_Jan07. Anyway of doing this?
I've tried the solution to get around the 3 criterial limit for Conditional Formatting provided at http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/excel-cond...ting-limit.htm. It works fine for values or text that are entered in the cells, but does not work for a value or text in the cell as a result of a function in that cell. What modifications to the VBA statement needs to be made to make Conditional Formatting work based on function results?
look at the tab "Publisher sumif summary" and at the "Q" column. There is already a formula in place which returns a number from column B in the "Publisher Control Sheet".
If you look at Column B in the "publisher control sheet", you can see that for some of the companies in column A there is no number. Instead, there is a number in Column C where there is no number for column B.
The problem at the moment is that I don't know how to get the data from Column C factored into the equation, which I will describe below
Essentially, i need the formula in the Q column of the "Publisher sumif summary" to return "((Column M number (impressions) /1000)* Column C number) with the column C number coming from the "Publisher control sheet" tab. It needs to only do this where there is no number in column B, and how to add this function!
I clicked on something and now my original (one) workbook has opened as two workbooks with the above listed extensions. If I do something in one, it will appear in the other. If I close out and re- open the workbook from it's original state, they still appear. I clicked too fast or hit something and now I can't get it back to original form.
creating a macro that will inport file exention which has WK4 , i have lotus notes at work i have exported email file to drive U: , i require a macro to pick this file up and export to Sheet Group_Mailbox. The range is A9
I have a few thousand files that all have the extension of .kdm.kdm. I need to change them all to .kdm.xml. All of the files are in a single directory on my hard drive. I know there's a way to do this in VBA that's simple, but I can't seem to locate it in any of the books I have....
I took this code from another post and modified it slightly to look in my directory "C:cherylpostal" and list the names of all the files contained. I then have them displayed in a combo box. They are all CSV files, but I would really like them to appear without the .CSV extension. For example, my COQ4 file appears as COQ4.CSV but I would like it to just display COQ4. I can't seem to make it work however.
Dim rngOut As Range Dim strPath As String Dim strFile As String
Set rngOut = Range("F1") strPath = "C:cherylpostal" strFile = Dir(strPath & "*.*") If strFile = "" Then MsgBox "No files matching criteria can be found in " & strPath, vbExclamation Exit Sub End If Do While strFile <> "" rngOut = strFile Set rngOut = rngOut.Offset(1, 0) strFile = Dir Loop
Apparently my program quits after i try to open an excel file. If you open the file manually you get an error upon opening the file...something like this:
"File you are tyring to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension".
The problem is i am using an excel macro using VBA and once the file is opened the VBA execution quits.
The excel file turns out to be an xml file which excel can open the file and have the VBA continue running if i RENAME the file with an "xlsx" extension. The problem is that i cant ask the user to rename the file.........how do i get VBA to open the file without an issue?
Has anyone got the add in code? I have my own custom menu bar on my excel. But every time i want to add a new link i must go into the code and manually add the file name extension and relevant VBA code. Is there a method of just entering the file extension in a cell range and excel will automatically update or pick up or link from this location?
