I have a workbook were a user will write down some info. Then I need to copy that data to a second workbook located anywere in the Hard drive. i used the function "GetOpenFilename" or the "Application.dialogs(xlopenfile) to ask the user where is the file (and open it). Now I need to get the name of that file. How can I get it?(the name of the file the user selected to open). P.S. I saw there is somewhere a "Print" function to copy data from a workbook to another closed workbook. I was planning to have both workbooks open and then just use several lines like:
We have several salespeople who maintain a workbook tracking their workflow. I want to compile the customer account number, account name and deal number for each rep to another workbook. A new sourcebook is started each week. This code is in the target book
Public sourcebook As Object 'the workflow workbook
Dim wsc As Double 'the number of pages in the workflow
Dim col As Long 'the column in this workbook for returning values
Dim IntEndRow As Double 'the end row in this book
Dim SrcEndRow As Double 'the end row in workflow
Dim findval 'the column workflow where the sourcedata is found
My code allows the user to select a workbook and then loops through each sheet in that book searching for the column which has the info I need, this changes on each sheet as the reps each deal with different types of customer as so take different details. I solved this by having column headers in the target book and searching for them in the sourcebook.
This code works when I step through it but falls over at the "Set sourcebook" line when I run it where it returns a breakpoint error.
I'm trying to write a macro that will bring up the "File Open" dialog box, and allow the user to navigate to the directory where the file is located. It won't be the same file every time, and the files will likely have different names.
The code below opens a window which allows the user to select a file to open. Apparently, it starts in the directory of the file containing the macro. How would I modify this to open in "M:Archived PO ResponsesProcessed"?
I have a program that opens an excel-workbook, I first check whether the file is opened by another user(open for read-write). This works fine, but I'd like to know which user has the file open with VBa code. ex.
workbooks.open .... if open then msgbox " Book opened by user" end if
So it's the same as you open an excel(with your windows explorer) on a network and you get the message that the file is already opened by the user....
I use the vba to open excel file. like workbooks.open filename:=abc.xlsm but I found that if the file is opened by other. Excel still open the file but it will not notify user that it is opened as read only.
Would you add more line to notify user if the file is opened by other?
I have developed a product that's a bunch of Excel spreadsheets strung together. Real estate and mortgage professionals use the tools to counsel home buyers. We include a pdf converter in case recipients of emailed file attachments don't have Excel.
We provide an 'Export' procedure that calls a custom dll that uses the outgoing mail server that the user [must] setup or our web's mail server as a default. The action attaches the Excel or the PDF file and sends in the background. We use an Excel form for user to write the message and the process saves a copy of the message sent and the file send in an Archives folder.
This procedure is not very user friendly, as it does not offer the user's address book to select a recipient, does not put the message in the user's email client Sent folder...Plus the Archives folder could become quite large...plus it involves a user setup that creates alot of support calls.
But actually the most critical shortcoming has become that ISPs (Comcast and ATT so far) are blocking the use of custom email clients!
Recently my son showed me in QuickBooks their attach file-to-email process. It simply opens the user's default email client with the file attached. I need an app that does that! And it needs to be distributable.
I am making a macro that requires that user to enter a directory path into a input box and the macro will open the file. Right now it works fine bit i would like to change the code so that instead of using an input box it brings up a box that will allow them to browse files on their computer and then select one to open.
Below is the current code I have for File Copy before the workbook closes. This file will be distributed all over and obviously will not have the same old path and new path locations as I have in my code also will not have the same file name. Is there anyway to still perform the file copy without knowing the old path and file name and possibly have message box pop up to ask the copy to location and use that in the new path string?
Sub Macro1() Dim fs As Object Dim oldPath As String, newPath As String oldPath = "I:EXLDATAMC Daily" '<---Where the file is currently located newPath = "H:South RegionOrlando Mail Services2008DI" 'Since the super shared drive is super slow we will just copy and replace this file each time before we close and of course after we save Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") fs.CopyFile oldPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls", newPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls" Set fs = Nothing End Sub
I am trying to open a website, then for excel to download the csv file, then for it to save it in a specific folder under a specific name and file format (excel).
I am successful at opening the website with the following code, but how to do the rest.
Sub Searchez() Dim IE As Object Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") IE.Navigate "http://quote.morningstar.ca/Quicktakes/stock/keyratios.aspx?t=clwr®ion=USA&culture=en-CA&ops=clear" 'load web page google.com IE.Visible = True While IE.Busy DoEvents Wend
Actually i've downloaded Tracking report of my SPO and this report is on 4-5 csv files (1 file per week). I have to gather data from these 4 files into one Worksheet. I have to do this with command button on my worksheet; with Open file dialogue box (i want to locate the csv files).
CSV files are something like that (I need only first 4 columns):
and my Worksheet is like that (With a command Button):
I want to import first 3 columns of csv file on first 3 columns on my worksheet; leave 2 columns blank and then import the 4th column... now for example i have done importing data from 1st csv file and the data is on 50 rows.. i click the command button again, locate the 2nd csv file.. do the same thing (import 1st 3 columns, 2 blank, then 4th) --from 51st Row-- and so on...
I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.
So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.
How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).
I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls
Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?
This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.
I've got a couple of formulas in a workbook which lookup values in another workbook. When I reopen the initial workbook the formulas results come back as errors (i.e. #VALUE!) unless the workbook it is looking at is also open. This is not desirable, does anyway know how I can lookup values in another workbook which are not open? The formula which is causing me problems is as follows:
I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.
Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using
When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).
Example; The first time it is opened you see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages1"... I close the file and open it again (via the macro), and see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages2"... The file name continues to increment on every opening until the PC is rebooted, then it starts at 1 again.
Dim wb As Workbook Dim AlreadyOpen As Boolean
AlreadyOpen = False
For Each wb In Workbooks 'Scan open workbooks If wb.Name = "P'Binder L&T Pages.xls" Then ........................
I need a code to open a file automatically based on file name, for example if the active file name is "trial", then it need to open another file named "trial1" based on which the macro will run, because I have two set of files and I want to compere daily with two users. for example the file names in Set a- iron, cement, stone, sand where as the set b-iron1, cement1, stone1, sand1
What I would like to do is to open an excel workbook from a bat file in dos with one arguement.
so something like
start c:lacklist.xls 2315t
Once the blacklist.xls is opened I would like to have the macro to save the excel file as a csv file ignoring all the prompts and use the argurement 2315t as the directory to save it to on the j drive ie save to j:2315tlacklist.csv. Then close the workbook and continue with the rest of the commands in the bat file.
I'm guessing I have to use GetCommandLineA to read in the arguement but I can't find anything on the net that gives a clear explanation of how to use it.
