Auto Save To A File Via Macro Or Program

Apr 11, 2008

Is It Possible To Auto Save To A File Via A Macro?

What I Want To Do Is To Auto Save Directly To A Folder On Our System Via A Macro.

The Problem Is That Firstly It Will Need To Look Up A Cell ( D8 ) To Find Out The Job Number

Then It Will Have To Find The Folder On Our System ( Its On Desktop Under Job File Folder ) Then Comes The Hard Bit It Will Need To Locate That Job Number ( Cell D8 ) To Look Up The Relevant Folder To Put It In. All The Job Files Are Labelled Up Eg.( J2663 - Parry ) Then In That Folder Is A Sub Folder Called Docs Which It Needs To Be Saved In

Opening Program And Naming File From Macro

May 3, 2008

I was wondering if there is a way to open up a given program (notepad in my example) ..paste data from cells copied in excel and save the notepad file to a specific location and close it out??
The file path will be given from a data cell in excel as well as the file name.

From searching the forums i've come up with the way to open notepad
using the lines

Dim RetVal As Variant
RetVal = Shell("C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32
otepad.exe")

Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro

Oct 16, 2009

I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.

I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).

The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.

If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.

The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)

The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Auto Save As VBA Macro Every X Minutes?

Dec 20, 2008

I have found some posts about "Auto Saving" and Dave pretty much frowns upon that. But the program I use (via ODBC), for some reason doesn't see the changes I make unless the file is saved. I have it auto-saving right now, but was thinking, maybe it is better to export a copy.

What I would need, is the ability to take my current workbook and export it to a new file (overwriting that same file each time), and do this based on time or (even better) on a change in the data. My current workbook is set to pull from other CSV files, scraping our website, etc., and then I use Excel to format the data the way I want.

It would be cool, if I could export two versions each time too... one that would be like a archive of what the file was like when it changed, the other would be the one that just gets overwritten each time.

Love this site...tons of info...but dang am I not smart at this stuff. Half the time, I don't even get where to put the code...worksheet, module, workbook?

Disable Save As At Program Level?

Jan 29, 2014

I know the disabling of 'Save As' has been covered alot. I have successfully disabled both Save and Save As at the file level by the following:

Making file Read Only (which disables Save option)

Inserting the following VBA to make the Save As disabled.

[Code].....

The remaining problem I have is disabling the Save As prompting at the program exit level.

For example, if I have a read only file with Save As disabled and I choose the workbook (file) level close window (X) button, I am prompted to save the file but am not allowed to. This is the behavior I am looking for.

HOWEVER, if I choose to exit the file by selecting the program (Excel) level close (X) button, I am prompted to save a copy of the file and it allows me to do it.

I do not want my ~180 users to have any option to save the file once it is uploaded to a centralized server location. It is a large file and I do not need multiple versions floating around.

Is it also possible to disable the 'Save As' on close at the Program level??

Macro: Save File & Automatically Overwrite Old File

Oct 11, 2006

I presently have a macro that, when run, takes to conents of C4 and C6 and saves a new version of the file being worked on into a folder on my desktop. I love the macro with the exception of one part: I don't want to be prompted to overwrite the file if it already exists. How can I change this macro so that, when pressed, it overwrites the file without prompting the user and waiting for their answer?

Here is the current

Auto Answering Save As Dialogue Box During Macro Run

Aug 1, 2007

I have written a macro which opens a worksheet, performs various operations on it, and closes it again. The problem is that upon close, two separate dialogue boxes appear - one asking me if I want to save, the other asking me if I want to keep what I have copied in the clipboard.

Is there a way of answering these dialogue boxes (or suppressing them) from withint he macro, so I do not need to manually click on Yes or No each time the macro is run?

Auto Save Sheet To PDF Macro Not Working When Transferred From Win XP To 7

Jun 3, 2014

I'm fairly new to macros but somehow i managed to create all the required macros for my project through googling and the like. The problem is that i created my macro enabled excel file in XP and when i transferred it to Windows 7 the auto save to PDF macro stopped working with the Runtime Error '5' Invalid Procedure, call or Argument. The highlighted error is as follows.

ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _
Type:=xlTypePDF, _
FileName:="C:WindowsTemp emporaryexam.pdf", _
Quality:=xlQualityStandard, _
IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
IgnorePrintAreas:=False, _

This auto save is supposed to work when a hyperlink is clicked or when the set time runs out (Working Macro).

Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

I have tried the code below in various permutations but always end up with an error - Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed.

Save One Worksheet As A .CSV File With Macro

Jan 7, 2010

So I am trying to design a workbook that has two worksheets... one with instructions and a button for users to click to "Save as .CSV File", another for the data that will go into that CSV file.

Here are the Macro requirements:
1. The user will be prompted for the File & Location to save the .CSV file
2. If they click 'Cancel', no changes will be made (and unlike my current code, it won't ask them to debug).
3. Confirmation of the filename is not necessary even though it's currently included in my Macro
4. The file will automatically "reopen" so that they only see the new .CSV file without the original Instruction tab.
