Creating PDF File From Word Document Inside Folder With ID Number And Reference Number?
Jul 31, 2014
I have an excel database where I register cases. I have in it a button that creates a folder with and ID nr that is in column A (I create new ID nr in the next row, when I press the button it will create a folder with that ID nr and inserts a blank word document in it). We have a template that we copy to the folder (depending what type of case). The idea would be that once the template is filled in and ready to print, It would take the values from the ID nr and a reference number a few cells to the right. Is it possible to tell excel to open the word document in the folder and create a PDF version with the ID nr and reference number. (there are only 2 templates, so the macro would have to look for one of the two in the folder) The names of the templates are: "Standard" and "Other". I guess the best way to start maybe this would be that I select the cell with the ID nr and then press a macro button to have this done. One thing that needs to be done, is to put a copy in the same folder and another in a second folder called "Binder" in my documents folder.

I'm trying to copy the content of a word document (File A) to another (File B) using Excel VBA. File A has about 100's of pages (not sure of the number as it varies) and this needs to be split to different files, each having 15 Pages.
Below is my code, where I'm able to select the content of the first Page and paste it in the target folder, but not sure how to determine the number of pages in word using excel VBA.
Note: Copying the content should be done, page wise only.
I am working on a project where I am creating analysis using a subroutine in excel/vba and I would like to have the subroutine generate a report that is a word document. I have never used excel/vba to create and modify a word document and don't know how to approach it. I imagine that I will have a template.doc that I can access and save as another file. Does anyone have an example of creating and modify a word document in this manner.
I am running an ordering sheet that I need to attach reference numbers to, no format for the reference number has been determined.as yet. I need this reference number to change when the 5 digit number changes, see example attached.
I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:
has the following files: Untitled.xls - read only abc-09-001.xls abc-09-002.xls abc-09-003.xls abc-09-004.xls
Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).
At the end of the process of client meetings and revisions, we must generate an MS Word-formatted report. I've written a macro to parse the comments and columns and generate a mostly-formatted Word document. What's missing are the corporate headers, footers, logos -- the standard template or basic document stuff that all of the details would fill in. For now, I auto-gen a Word document and merge it by hand into the corporate template.
So my question is: if I want to "include" a corporate Word template with the spreadsheet, can I bundle it with the workbook somehow or must it always remain a separate file?
My current thinking is that since a *.xlsm file is really a ZIP file underneath, could I store the Word template there where it would effectively be hidden from the user? Or what is the best way to bundle an extra file like this with my workbook app?
Just striving to have this kind of "picture arrangement's macro" to work, macro that whenever you choose a certain cell and operate it on hotkey it'll:
1. Create a new folder named "PicturesAuto" beside the excel file (wherever the excel file located).
2. Inside folder "picturesAuto it'll create a new subfolder named by the same name of the sheet related to that cell you operated the macro upon. (let's say this cell placed on sheet named: "happysheet"- that'll be the name of the subfolder created.)
3. Inside the subfolder "happysheet" it'll create a new subfolder named by the text of the cell you activated the macro upon (let's say you initially operated the macro on B5 cell -which has the text "montana" so it'll create "montana" subfolder also inside subfolder "happysheet")
4. Lastly instead of having only the text "montana" in "B5 cell" like we had initially before activating the macro, the macro'll also add to that text "montana" the link to "montana" folder (path of excel file->picturesAuto->happysheet->montana)
The way I'm planning to use this is to add a lot of HR pictures inside those folders created by the macro that related to that specific sheet, and that specific cell I've activated the macro upon. Plus just having those pictures so organized is just outstanding in every scale, and the excel file will keep running smoothly without any resource consuming overload.
Is it possible to export Excel cell contents to Word fields in a protected Word document? For example...
What code would be needed to tell Excel to open up, copy and export the contents of A2 in the active sheet of a workbook to "Field 2" in a Word document named "Report 01" and then put the contents of B2 to "Field 2" etc?
Do both applications have to be opened up at the same time or is Excel able to open up Word on its own? Will the macro be able to....
1. Automatically open up the correct Word document?
2. Look ONLY in a certain folder for the "Report 01" Word document?
Bring up a "selection" box that allows you to select the document you wish Excel to export it's data to?
3. Close and save the Word Document without any user intervention?
I am processing a fair few Invoices, which are being sent to me via e-mail as excel documents, very often they contain mistakes, a decent amount of mistakes. Usually the prices are wrong.
I keep track of every single entry on the invoice on my own document - Tracker, which I consider to be the superior/more correct document to the Invoice presented to me by my contractor.
Both of the documents have a reference number, which is a specific docket number, and horizontally, in the invoice, there is going to be a price for this docket. In my document, there is going to be a separate column for the total price.
Is it possible (I guess with VBA) to check for mistakes in the Invoice, but use the Tracker as a reference for this check.
Tracker has columns A - Name B - Department C - Date D - Docket No. C - Total price for the docket (calculation of E to Z) E to Z - all smaller entries
Invoice has columns A - Date B - Docket No. C to E price for that docket, but it is spread, because departments are separated out, so each VAT account can be charged accordingly. I guess it is possible to do a separate column for the price, if it is easier to do a script that way.
Basically, I need to check if in the Invoice document, the price (C to E) for Docket No. (B) is the same as the price (C) for the Docket No. (D) in the Tracker.
I would like the wrong entries to be highlighted on the Invoice Document, so I can see straight away, that this needs attention.
Not always the price is wrong, sometimes the Docket No. is spelled incorrectly (Dyslexic contractor), hence the highlighting.
How do I change a Positive number into a Negative number inside a cell formula?
I have a figure in Cell AE 101 which has the positive number 141
I have another cell W1 which has the positive number of 437
I want to create a formula in cell X1 that takes the number in cell AE 101 of 141 and convert the number inside the formula of 141 into a negative number of -141 and then subtracts that number from Cell W1 of 437 leaving an equation inside the formula to read. 437-141 = 296
Since the number in Cell W1 changes all the time and the number in AE101 Changes all the time the new formulated number in X1 will change all the time too as the cells get updated.
Is it risky for someone to edit an excel document while it is still in the flashdisk or external hard disk? I was told that this habit can lead to loss of data or the data can be affected if someone does this. I was told that I have to copy/cut paste the document onto my desktop, edit/ work on it then move it back to the storage device. Is all that work necessary, or can I simply work on the document while it is still in the flashdisk or external hard disk..
I am creating a review sheet/skill matrix using excel and need to be able to convert a particular selection to a number in the adjacent cell to work out the users efficiency (long story that i wont bore you with)
So basically i have a question/statement in cell A and a drop down answer menu in cell B containing up to 5 possible answers (very poor, poor, ok, good, very good). In cell C i would like to insert a formula that allocates a number dependant on the selection in cell B. So if the user selects very poor in cell B cell C states 1, if cell B has poor selected then cell C states 2 etc etc
I am trying to create a spreadsheet to keep track of an online racing league that I'm in. I have created columns for the racers, and rows for the races. What I would like to do is type in 1st, and it represent the number 13 for when I do an autosum at the bottom of that column. It would be easier for me to type in the position place, instead of the points value. The position place will always carry the name numeric value. Here is what I have so far:
I have a column with codes coming after a # symbol and want to extract just the code from the cell. The code could be 2 or 4 characters in length. Some examples:
From this I would want the formula to return #AA.
From this, I would want the formula to return #ABCD.
The #Code should but may not always be the first word in the cell, so it needs to find the # symbol and then take the next x characters until a space is found. Note that the reason code may be the only text in the field, so a space may not be there at all. For instance,
Should just return the #RR.
Edit: This actually has become more complex now. The cell could be
And for that, I would just want the #AA.
The formula would need to begin at the # and return just the next x capital letters.
