Our small company only has 5 computers in it with mine acting as the "server". I want to put a macro on our customer order forms that all computers can access on the server that will save the file as 3 or 4 cell names serparated by commas and save it in a specific location on the server.
I got the macro to work perfectly on my computer but when I try to type in the appropriate path to the server the file gets saved in their My Documents folder 99% of the time. I did get it to work twice but it seembed to be completely random as it didn't work any of the times before or after.
I have a macro which saves file to a specific folder. Problem is I can save the file only in my local drive C: but not on a server for some reason. Here is the At home in my home computer this code worked when C: was selected.
ChDir ("c:") Title = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(Name, "Excel files (*.xls), *.xls") ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Name Save the file in specific place
But when I substituted C: path with my server path it doesnt work! Have a look. Its the exact same code except my path is different.
ChDir ("\Lnf001Lnf1vol1SharedOP_ENGWork Order") Title = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(Name, "Excel files (*.xls), *.xls") ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Name
I am looking for the best way to create a new file in windows. I am just looking to create a save filename template. After I run a macro, a graph is created and printed to pdf. I want this macro to create a filename, so that when the save as dialog box opens, I just have to doubleclick the existing filename. Then I save the excel workbook as another.
For example, after I run the macro, the pdf printer will open up a save as dialog to c: emp. I want to have this macro create two files there, one DaveGraph.PDF and one DaveExcel.xls. They really won't be files, just names. They can be 0kb files. I want it to be as efficient as possible. I know I could create a new workbook and save it there with the correct name, but isn't there an easier way?
1) When using the command below, how can I determine what the "XYZ" component could be. I see plenty of examples of it being used to start a MS Word session or Powerpoint but I'd really like to see a definitive list.
At the moment, I'm not even sure what to type into Google that describes this part of the command's argument.
Set target = CreateObject("XYZ.Application")
2) I'm just a frightened noob on this site and I tried to follow the advice on bumping my previous post on this subject, having altered my plea. All I got was a telling-off for being a double-poster and my old old thread sat where it was despite my 'Bump' command. Do you have to have at least one reply before your thread moves?
I have an Excel Addin that I deploy as a read-only addin on a server share. I instruct my co-workers to add the Add-In as they would any other Add-In, but I tell the to answer NO to the Windows question "Copy 'AddinName' to the Addins folder for John Doe?".
That way, everyone will be working with the server version of the addin, and any time I want to roll out an updated version I just place a new addin file on the server. The next time the users restart Excel, the new version is loaded.
Except users never follow directions and some of them click the default 'Yes' when asked and get a local copy of the addin and never receive updated versions of the addin.
How do I disable the "Copy Addin" question completely? I don't want to depend on the user. I know this is possible because I have this 3rd party addin that we use that is installed from c:Program Files and it just stays there and you're never asked to copy the addin when you install it in Excel.
I am wondering if it is possible to get excel to Create a new folder from a cell value? I am entring data into cells Eg A1-F1, and then the next line of data is in A2-F2 and so on. What I'd like is when I enter data (the date) in the F column then it will create a folder with the value of H2 (=A2&B2&D2&E2)
create macro for the below scenario I need to search whether "Sep-13" folder is available in my desktop. If folder is there then i need to open the folder else i need to creat a folder in the name "Sep-13" and open the folder.
I'm trying to create a link to a folder and to insert it in a cell. The folder name is: "C:DISCO CTEMPLATES #1". I tried to copy that text and paste it into the cell. Excel recognizes that as a hyperlink but when I click the cell a message appears: "Cannot open the selected file" Could the problem be because of the "#" symbol?
I'm having a little trouble making this code work correctly. This macro, Once finished, is connected to a (Save) command button. Here is what is suppose to happen, First thing to remember is another sheet (Sheet1) has been populated with various information which is used as a receipt. The information came from sheet2. I need to copy sheet1 just as it is, format included, create a new empty sheet, paste the information into the new sheet, name the new sheet with the values from cells in sheet2, E3, D3, and the date formatted as the month and year only. Then I need to create a folder in the my documents folder named from the values from sheet2, E3, D3, and todays date with the current time. If the folder already exists, then I just need it to change to that folder, and save the newly created worksheet (as named above) into that folder. After the save is executed, I need to delete that new sheet from the current workbook. Then I need to return to sheet2 to the last active cell and run the last few lines of code which collects the value of the cell 1 to the right of the active cell and transfers it to the cell 1 to the left of the active cell.

I have a macro that creates a spreadsheet on a weekly basis and have been using it for quite sometime. Due to the large number of spreadsheets I would like to incorporate some code that would create a folder every month. I would assume that the code would need to include a check routine to see if a folder for that month exsists.
I have the following code which saves a certain sheet to a new workbook and then emails it to a range of cells. The directory the file is saved in is from a cell, and changes depending on certain cells in the workbook. I would like to make it so if the folder it is saving to does not exist, it will create it. If this isn't possible with this set up, I would just like it to display an error message if the folder is not present.
VB: Sub Save_Report() Dim wbName As String Sheets("TELELINK & ITINERARY FORM").Copy
I need to activsheet create in .pdf witch i did with this
VB: Sub Save_As() ' macro za snimanje racuna u PDF pomocu Microsoftovog ugradjenog alata za Office 2010 Dim txtName As String txtName = "D: eports" & Range("G14") & "_" & Range("L3") & "_" & Range("E18") 'ime nove datoteke i folder u koji se snima ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat _ Type:=xlTypePDF, _ filename:=txtName, _ OpenAfterPublish:=False End Sub
and for that pdf file i need to create folder based on cell e.g. q1 and sub folder l3 and all that in case that they dont exist and if they are just put file in it. For example i fill out sheet (one of many in one day) and i click buton and sheet go to pdf in subfolder L3 in folder Q3.
1. Form Templete & 2. Student Data Index. (Both files will be placed in same folder)
About Form Templete : This is a simple form, containing some fields. Fields which i require are Form No., Student's name & Standard.
About Student Data Index : This file is to maintain records. Each time when I fill form for a new student i will copy paste the form templete file & rename it by form no. (Entered in the Form Templete file, Form No. field)
My question is : Is it possible that whenever i create a new file in the same folder with student's name the required fields in the Student data Index get filled automatically, apart from that the new file created get hyperlinked & when i click on form no. the form for that student gets open?
I have a workbook that will have many modules (5) that will perform all sort of checks etc. The output for each module is a worksheet that i need to export to a new workbook named with the name of the original sheet and current date appended e.g. "Dbase 27 06 2008.xls".
Every time any of the 5 modules is run a check is performed whether a folder with a specific name and date exists e.g. "Audit Tool 27 06 2008" and if it does not exist yet to create it. The new workbook should be saved to this folder with above mentioned name e.g. "Dbase 27 06 2008". I found some info on this topic but I just cannot assemble all pieces of code together (I am new to this).
I was working on some code that would create a new folder in My Documents and within that folder export the current worksheet and save it there with a particular name. After doing so I need it to return to the original worksheet and clear contents. I would also need to export to the new sheet only contents of the cells without any macros or buttons.
In Cell N1 i have 02/02/09 but i have formatted it to look like Feb Invoices 2009.
