Automatically Produce Save As File Name By Value In A Cell
Mar 21, 2009
I would like excel to automatically suggest the save as file name and location for my workbook when I click the save, save as or close options. The file name should be a combination of values in cells A1 and A2 of Sheet1. The location should be a folder named "Bill" in C:/My Documents. I think I can do it with a beforesave code but I am new to vba.
Sample File name : 2013-07-22_UOB000000_TransAuto_Inv778899_PV_$$$$$$$
I tried to add this code : FName = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Payment Voucher").Range =("V5&"_"&E17&"_"&D11&"-"&O9&"_"&"PV"&"_"&W16")
But getting error.
Than i tried to group all the cell data into cell (E11) and than select as range (E11), but when i tried to group it, the beginning the file name instead of i want it to be the date 2013-07-22_UOB........ it become 41113_UOB............
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?
I am trying to fix is that I have two computers networked together both with multiple users all with access to the report form that I am using which is in the shared file. If I have been working on it (I am still trying to do improvements when I have time), and I have to leave for a fire or forget to close the report, no one can access it other than with read-only.
My idea was to run some type of code that either when the screen saver comes on or after so much time with no activity, it would close and save the file with a new file name(just in case I don't want the changes that I have made in the code or something).
I'm trying to create a sub that will save my worksheet to a tab delimited text file anytime there is a change in the worsheet data (all cells are linked to cells in other workbooks). I've figured out the command to save the file
I have a Workbook that already has a macro in it that will generate multiple sheets based on certain criteria.
For each of these newly generated sheets (numbered 1-6 in the attached example), I need to be able save each of them to a PDF file based on a unique name contained in a certain cell (in this case, each named is referenced in cell Q1 of each sheet). As such, I should end up with 6 pdfs based on the attached sample files.
The PDFs would ideally need to be landscaped and should be just 1 page per sheet.
In my attached sample workbook, you'll notice that I have a "PracticePrint" macro that doesn't quite get the job done. One other criteria involves not printing any sheet with the characters "1010" in it (my PracticePrint macro is setup to do that, but it fails to do much else).
I have a range that refer to an external data. This external data is refreshed every one minute. So the data is changing every one minute. I need to copy the content of one fix cell in that range into another cell every one minute, each time copy to a different cell. Example: cell A1 has the content that refer to an external data. Cell A1 is updated every one minute. At first A1= 100, I need it to be copied to cell B1 (so B1=100); one minute later, A1=101, I need it to be copied to B2 (so B2=101) and so on.
I am very new to vba and trying to figure out an auto save macro that will automatically save my workbook when a certian cell range is changed. Right now I have a macro set that automactially record the time and date of when a change is made to the name cell, I want to set up a macro that will automatically save the file when the time is updated.
This program is used by several users and they have a tendnecy to forget to save the program so that when other people want to check the updated data nothing has changed because the changes have not been saved. I have attached the file that I am working on. When a change is made in column F then Column G automatically updates, now I want column G to trigger autosave. I would also like a msgbox to appear to tell user that file has been saved.
I have got a master workbook and I have written macro to copy and paste data on another workbook. write a macro to save the new workbook to a file path with a file name where both file name and path are stored in master workbook sheet...
Could any Excel wiz out there tell me whether the following is possible, and if so what would be the VB code to do it?
I would like a macro that will save the contents of cell A2 in a text file, with file name from cell A1, then move the cursor down to the next row, and repeat the process until reaching the last row of data.
The end result would be a stack of text files, each containing the data from a single cell in the spreadsheet.
e.g. 001.txt (containing the contents of cell A2) 002.txt (containing the contents of cell B2) 003.txt (containing the contents of cell C2) ...etc.
This is for a multi lingual dictionary so the text files would have to be unicode as well.
Is it possible to save a file with a date taken from a cell? For example:
I have an Excel file opened, in the cell A1 there is a date: 12.04.2003 (or any other date format). I want an Excel to save this document, but after I check the date of creation (modification) of the file under Windows, I want to receive the result 12.04.2004 (or any other, that was in the cell "A1" before pressing SAVE button).
I imagine, that there would have to be some external script running, that would change the system date for a moment, just after detection of pressing SAVE command.
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.
would like to save a spreadsheet with the contents of a cell as the name. My problem is that I have several macros in the workbook and if I change the name of the file when I save, it won't run the macros when I reopen because the filename has changed. It presents me with an error saying it can't find the macro.
i have a order form that is customer dependant. the cust name on the form is manually entered by the user within a msg box. i have specific cusotmer folders on a shared machines C drive where i would like to save these excel docs to.
i understand that the cust name must match the name of the file and there needs to be a way to save those that do not have specific folder matching what was entered as the customer name.
the overall goal is to have the file name saved as CustomerNameDeliveryDateInvoiceNumber.xls where CustName is from cell "M3", delivery date is "Q7" and InvoiceNumber is "Q1".
I want to add the columns in the attached sheet...any 4,say A,C,D and F.....as follows,if the number in the cell is less than .8,I want use 1 in the sum,otherwise zero. I would like to do this in 1 column if possible. in the attached sheet,I have filled in manually the answer in column L....Thus row 1 contained no numbers less than .8 in the selected columns,where as row 8 had all four numbers less than .8.
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 recorded a macro to save my file as PDF and assigned the macro to a button. Easy. Now I would like to change my macro to pause when the file is saving to allow the user to enter a file name. If that is not possible, I'd like to reference a cell to use as the file name. I have gone through other posts and tried changing my macro, but always get an error. I am using Excel 2010. Following is my code for saving to pdf.
