I'm getting an object required error in excel, but don't really understand.
rivate Sub CommandButton1_Click()
free_number = FreeFile()
Filename = app.Path & "/file_write_output.txt"
StringToSave = Cells(1, 1).Value
Open Filename For Output As free_number
Write #free_number, StringToSave
Print #free_number, StringToSave
Is it possible to write vba code that will generate a text file with ALL changes that were made to an excel file. Ex. If Cell A17 = "Monday, June 4, 2012" and a user updates Cell A17 to "N/A", I would like to know what the value was before and after the udpate was made.
I have a CSV file that contains data in columns A-Q. Some cells may be blank.
I'm having trouble opening this CSV file because when I re-save it after editing it, Excel removes any quotes that were around the data.
Here is the criteria that the data must be formatted like:
If the value in column A = "H", the following columns need quotes around the cell - A-F, H-I, K-M, P-Q. The values in the rest of the columns do not need quotes. If the value in column A = "D", the following columns need quotes around the cell - A-D, F, I-O, Q. The values in the rest of the columns do not need quotes. Data is only in columns A-Q.
Can somebody write a macro that will format the data as list above and save?
I m trying to write a macro which could take the text from a single column row T2 to row T313 and write it to a .txt file. Have the .txt file name created by the text in T4 or I could also put the text to name the file in T1 if you think it would be easier.
Then carry on to the next named sheet and produce another .txt file in exactly the same way until all 15 sheets have been completed. It would also be helpful if prior to starting to write each text files, it could test for any text in cell A2 of the sheet. The first empty A2 cell of a sheet would determine the end of the run, if it was prior to sheet 15 being reached.
I'd like to use Excel VBA to write this meta tag into that HTML file:
****** http-equiv="refresh" content="600"> That's to make it refresh every 600 seconds.
The most elegant way would be to locate the "head" tag and write it right after it, but the refreshing meta tag seems to work where ever it is, even at the very end of the file after the "/html" tag! So locating the "head" tag is not that important, if it's difficult.
So, how do I use VBA to write lines into a HTML (or any text) file?
The problem with the Write macro was that, although it did work, it used SendKeys which has to be slowed down considerably.
Here is a new version of the Write macro that works as normal. I originally tried to use CDDBControl.dll version 220.127.116.11 which is widely available on the internet but found that I could only get it to change 1 file before crashing Excel.
I have put the READ macro in the next message.
Dim ws As Worksheet Dim FromRow As Long Dim LastRow As Long Dim FilesToChange As Integer ' number of files to change Dim FilesChanged As Integer ' number of files changed Dim MyFilePathName As String ' full path & file name Dim MyFileType As String ' mp3 wma etc. '- Dim id3 As Object Dim MyArtist As String Dim MyAlbum As String Dim MyGenre As String Dim MyTrack As String Dim MyTitle As String
Sub WRITE_TO_EXPLORER() Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual Set ws = ActiveSheet Set id3 = CreateObject("CDDBControlRoxio.CddbID3Tag") LastRow = ws.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row ' count worksheet rows FilesToChange = ws.Range("A2:A" & LastRow).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Count If FilesToChange = 0 Then MsgBox ("No files to change."): Exit Sub FilesChanged = 0........................
I have a tool that accesses a master sheet. Multiple people use the tool (sort of a user interface).
In some cases I need to write to the Master in which I check to make sure its not read only when the macro opens it (that works fine).
In other cases, like when just pulling information, read only is fine. But, I have not specified read only when I open the master. Sometimes the users are getting a "File Now Available" with a read-write and cancel option. I do not want them to get this message.
My current universal call to master looks like this: ...
I have a file with multiple tabs of data...lot's of data (each tab has 80,000+ lines and 23 columns...3 are formulas, the rest is imported data). I've brought Excel to it's knees (i.e. crashes). Yes, I'm using 2007.
What I'm trying to do is extract 6 cells of data from every 10th line and write it out to a CSV file with two more pieces of information (same for each line).
What I was doing was creating a separate worksheet for each one to be extracted, parsing out the data, and then copying that data to yet another workbook that was then saved as a CSV.
First, in retrospect, that was a waste of time. Second, the addition of the extra worksheets to do the parsing was crashing Excel due to the extreme size of the workbook.
What I'd like to do is use a macro to do all of this in one swell foop:
1) Prompt me for a file name (or I can put the desired name in a cell and read it from there if that simplifies the code) 2) Open a new text file with that name and ".csv" extension in the same folder as the original workbook 3) Write out the column headers: (Fix, Satellites, Lat, Lon, alt (ft), Date, utc_t, course) 4) Step through each row, looking at the text contents of column B (looks like 22:50:07.100)...if it ends in ".000" do the following: 4a) write "PPS,4," to the open text file 4b) write the cell contents from columns "V", "W", "J", "C", "B", and "L" to the text file in the exact format they appear in the text cell.
The output file should look like (very short example):
I have a command that opens up another workbook. This workbook is sometimes open on another computer, so that the book opens up on my computer in write-protected mode (shows in the top of the window). Usually, when opening other books through the Excel functionality, a message box appears if the file is open and warns that the file is in use by another user. However, with the code I have at the moment, this is not the case when I try to open with my command. See code below:
Private Sub cmdOpenBook_Click() 'Open book ChDir "I:DevelopmentSpecialUtvikling" Workbooks.Open Filename:= _ "I:DevelopmentSpecialUtviklingJointApp.xls" End Sub
Is there any way of displaying a msgbox warning when opening another file through VBA?
I need some VBA code to cycle through each and every folder and file in a given root directory and write the file name string to a cell. (does not need to look at the content of sub-folders only the names of all objects sitting directly under the given root.)
I have recorded (i.e. manually as opposed to writing VBA code) a number of macros to perform a routine, however they do not work when I change the filename.
Could someone please advise on how to edit these macros (which reference a specific filename) so that they work when the file name is changed. The macros copy and paste values from different worksheets and then run another set of macros. However all macros and worksheets are located within one excel file
I have just started VBA for the first time in Excel 2007. I have spent 2-3 hours trying to write text to a cell and I do not understand why it is not working. I have reduced the operation to the simplest form that I can find, now using the following
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)
