Creating A Log That Logs The Last User That Saved The Workbook Including The Date And Time
Mar 16, 2004
Is there any way of creating a log that logs the last user that saved the workbook including the date and time. I would like the log to be a sheet hidden in the workbook. Not many people will be saving the workbook.
I'm looking for a way show the username of the person who last saved the spreadsheet, and the date & time it was saved. I would like to be able to ouput this data in certain cells on the worksheet. I have tried using something like:
I have a workbook with macro button to run some vba, if i want the button to disable when the user make copies of the workbook (date created is later than original wb saved time) what codes to add in the VBA?
what i assume is to add the time to a cell when the wb is saved, when the wb opens, it check for that cell if the same with the date created, if different, then disable the macro button.
The code below adds the date to D:D once the user enters data in B:B and then adds the time when the user selects from a dropdown in C:C. When they have finished the task they enter anything into F:F and then it enters the end time in G:G.
This works well except for one flaw and one modification that I can't get to work. I have found that people retrospectively change the activity in C:C which causes the start time to change. I would like to avoid this hapenning if possible by putting some code in to stop this. Also I would like the times to be related to the push of a button on the sheet and therefore need different code.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B2:B900")) Is Nothing Then With Target(1, 3) .Value = Date
Looking to write a macro which includes a prompt to the user for use in Excel 2007. Specifics....Have a workbook including many worksheets with a common layout. Would like to write a macro to copy specific defined ranges from one worksheet to another but within the macro it would prompt the user to type in the worksheet name to copy the ranges from.
Example....User is at worksheet C in the file containing worksheets A, B, C, and D. User starts the macro and a prompt comes up for the user to input the worksheet name to source the ranges from (in this example A). User types in "A" in a dialog box and the macros copy/pastes the contents from range B4:B35 and Z2:z20 from worksheet A into those same ranges in worksheet C.
I am trying to develop a macro that allows the user to copy and paste a set of date and time values, move them to the next sheet and increase the month by 1. I need help trying to find out how can I create a counter for the program to keep running without the need to reprogram the macros again.
i have the following code to insert comments into cells, however if the user cancels the input box (i.e. doesn't insert any text), a comment is still added with their details and the comment 'FALSE'. Is there anyway to stop comments being added if the user cancels the input?
Sub Insert_Comment() Dim iReply As Integer
Dim cl As Range Dim sComment As String Dim sText As String Dim UserNameWindows As String
Need VBA code to save column J of open workbook called LmbcAcctsPayable.xls, Sheet1, to same workbook & sheet called LmbcAcctsPayable.xls, Sheet1, when save is not selected.
Reason: The workbook is usually not saved because it is more of a templet with names in column A. Column J is updated with a date when a row is used so I need the column J to copy automatically to the blank templet when exiting without saving (using ThisWorkbook.Save = True in Auto_Close). That way, rows not being used for a long period of time can be periodically eleminated.
Private Sub Workbook_Activate() Dim user As String If Worksheets("Setup"). Range("D6").Value = "" Then user$ = InputBox("Hello. Please enter your name to inialize the program", "Enter Name") Worksheets("Setup").Range("D6").Value = user MsgBox ("Welcome " & user & ". Press 'OK' to continue on to the Main Menu.") Else user$ = Worksheets("Setup").Range("D6").Value MsgBox ("Welcome back " & user & ". Press 'OK' to continue on to the Main Menu.") End If Exit Sub
but i would like to expand the "welcome back" msgbox to also display "the last time you were was was (eg: 2 days/3 hrs/14 min) ago" - which i presume would be calculated from the last save.
I have two columns of dates, leave start and end dates (when people start leave i.e. annual leave). Would need to introduce column(s) to calculate how many days fell within the month including the end date and excludes weekends.
For example, if the staff on leave from 31st March to 6 April, i need to show that the number of leave taken as 1 day in March and 4 days in April.
In the expense log, Column C is a list of Dates and Column I is a list of expenses. I want to Sum the expenses in the 'Expense Log 09' to a new sheet based on a Date entered in H24 on the new sheet. I have tried the formula as shown below and Get the result #NAME?
=SUM(IF(Expense Log 'Expenses Log 09'!C8:C100,H24,'Expenses Log 09'!I8:I100)). I would Like to SUM all expenses After the posted date including that date.
I am busy with code that filters and copies from a "source file" using dialogue to choose criteria than adds a workbook and pastes filtered information. I than go back to "source file" and do second filter. My question is this newly added workbook changed from book1 to book2 etc everytime the user will run the macro. How do I go about activating the workbook for second and third paste without it being saved?
Here is name code:
[B]Workbooks.Open ("C:Documents and Settingsabek276DesktopSource File.xlsx")
I want the excel spreadsheet to "BE Protected" in standard form, and only be "Unprotected" when macros are enabled -- BUT DONT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS, hear me out, it gets deeper than that
If the user does not enable macros, I want the book to be protected. If they do enable macros, it becomes unprotected.... (On load is good enough, no need to be real-time)..... But, they can save the book, so it would no longer be protected , which is where my question comes in ...
I could use the -unprotect "password"- on load when macros are enabled but this will only work if the spreadsheet was originally protected and is never saved again. This is a problem because this workbook will be given to others and will be saved time and time again.
So, I had a vision :-) .... function 'before save' , protect the sheet using -protect "password"- , allow the sheet to save, and then unprotect back using 'unprotect "password"' so you can continue using - BUT, the problem with this is now I have created an endless loop in theory, because after it unprotects it would want to re-save again because it changed
I have a workbook that I constantly am improving with new macros and VB routines. I sometimes have two versions available for use at the same time. I would like to create a macro or routine that will tell me if the workbook has been saved. A simple cell color change to indicate I've saved would be fine. Also, if I DO save the file and the cell color changes to indicate I have saved, I would like the cell color to change back if any change is made to the workbook. This way I will always know if I need to save or not to keep latest changes.
I've designed a performance indicator (PI) recorder for up to 12 users, it has a userform allowing the users to input their data and a button to save the data and unload the user form. the data is saved using the following
Dim NextRow As Integer On Error Resume Next 'skips line if workbook is not open ActiveWorkbook. Sheets("DATA").Activate 'sets the "data" worksheets as active NextRow = Worksheets("DATA"). Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1 ' finds the next empty row With Worksheets("DATA").Range("A" & NextRow) 'inserts the data from the user form there follows a series of offsets to slot the data into the correct column, then this code to save the workbook ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("reports").Activate Application.DisplayAlerts = False ' suppress overwrite warning message ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "MY PATH" CreateBackup=False Application.DisplayAlerts = True MsgBox "Spread sheet Saved"
The problem I'm having is that when the user then closes the excel application there is a conflict between the users 'saves' i.e. one ultimately will overwrite the other. is there a way round this ?? (this is in EXCEL 2000)
I have working code to unhide specific worksheets from a large number of hidden worksheets and would like to be able to delete all the hidden sheets when the workbook is saved or maybe have a button to delete all the hidden (un-needed) worksheets beside the selection drop-down menu, so that only the selected sheets are saved.
I have a macro in a workbook template,that when the workbook is open it populates a cell with the date and time such as 111711.507. This becomes the contract number for this workbook.. They complete the form or workbook and save it. The next time they open the saved workbook the macro runs and changes the contract number to a new number. I want to disable the macro on the saved workbook from changing the number.
I have one workbook named "Data Master" with numerous worksheets... all sheets are named with the following 6 digit format, eg. 005001, 005024, 005133, 005456, 005763, etc.
I have another directory with files each beginning with the particular 6 digit cost centre number.
I was hoping to have a macro that will... for each worksheet in "Data Master" check a specified directory containing the cost centre files, for the file beginning with the relevant worksheet's 6 digit cost centre number... and simply paste a copy of the worksheet in "Data Master" to the end of the existing sheets in the cost centre file.
Is there a way to automate the date and time in one cell upon saving? I have seen some posts elsewhere upon this subject, but here is the twist: this is a shared workbook with each tab allocated for a different person. Each person needs to update their worksheet and have the date and time update upon saving. The date and time would appear in the same cell for each sheet. I am fairly certain that this cannot be done with an Excel formula, so I would appreciate if anybody had any VBA suggestions. (I am just starting to learn VBA
I have a "template" that runs a few processes and then saves the results in a new workbook...is there any way that I can have my vba code save the workbook without saving any of the vba code in the new workbook?
I would also like to exclude one of the worksheets from the new workbook if possible (but the first part is more important).
I have an excel file in which the date format for a column was in the following format -: 3/14/01 Since I wanted the column to display in 'mm/dd/yyyy' format, I changed the type to -: 03/14/01 and the sheet was saved. I then for a specific purpose converted the xls file to csv and noticed that the date formatting I did is not getting saved. That is, every time I open the csv the date format changes back to 3/14/01.
how to retain the date format in excel? I need to use the date format in mm/dd/yyyy only for the application I'm using.
