Macro Close Without Saving Reopen

Jan 6, 2010

Using excel 2003, I have a ss that uses filters and sorting. I can get to the data I want but must reopen the workbook if I want to start over and extract different information. I tried installing this VBA:

Sub CloseMe()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:10"), "OpenMe"
ThisWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

Sub OpenMe()
MsgBox "I'm Back!"
End Sub

This is my first time at inserting VBA. Usually I just use keystroke macros. I have set my Excel VB Book options to: Option Explicit double clicked the sheet I was using and under general inserted the code, closed Ctrl+Q, saved workbook. When I reopened and tried to use it all I get is “I'm Back!” nothing else happens. One time it actually ran and reopened but it appeared that the workbook was saved before closing because it was still sorted. What I need is it to completely unsorted as it is when I first open it so I can start over.

Close And Reopen Workbook From Macro Stored Inside Workbook

Mar 30, 2007

I have a Macro that is stored in a specific workbook,"Projection Modeler.xls" the last line performed in this macro is the close workbooks without saving chages(this needs to be done due to the way this macro was written, and it would take too long to rewrite). If I would then like to reopen this workbook, and then rerun this macro, can I do this from inside the current macro (in a new sub routine, for instance), or do I have to write a macro outside of the workbook and then open the workbook and call the routine?

Close / Reopen Excel Using Taskkill

Mar 17, 2014

I have the following code that needs to execute. Basically, every once in a while, our terminal program encounters an error that makes it so Excel and it can't talk to each other. The only way to fix this is by killing the entire process tree of both terminal and Excel, or restarting the computer. I've written this bit of code in the event it starts happening while someone is using the macro - it checks to see if the two can talk, and if they can't, it just kills both programs.

[Code] .....

Is there any way to launch Excel with a 8 second delay, so that once the kill command executes, Excel re-opens? Or could I write a batch file with delay built in to execute prior to the kill command? I could use Shell to execute that prior to killing Excel, but I'm not sure if that's possible....

Save, Close, Then Reopen Workbook

Oct 2, 2007

I am testing the following section of code.

Sub Macro1()
Dim NewWB As Workbook, NewName As String
Set NewWb = Workbooks.Add
NewName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(ThisWorkbook.Name)
NewWb.SaveAs NewName
NewWb.Close False
Workbooks.Open (ThisWorkbook.Path & "/" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
End Sub
It seems like I need to rename the sheet I am working on in order for this code to work. If I do not, it tells me that it "cannot save this workbook with the same name as another open workbook".

I am trying to use this code to get around an error with Excel described here: [url]

I would like to have the sheet save itself (not "Save As"), close, reopen, and continue running the macro. What adjustments do I need to make to this code to do this. I have tried different things, but I must be getting the syntax wrong.

Macro Not Working Except In One Tab, Must Save And Reopen To Work In Others.

Oct 17, 2009

I have a wierd issue. I have this macro for a workbook i use and if i run the macro in the first tab it runs and works fine. When i select the other tab and run it it gives me a debug error. If i close the worksheet save it and reopen it and run it in the other tab it runs fine.

So in otherwords i have to run the macro in the tab desired, save it , and always close and reopen the file to run it in the other tabs. I know the code is correct because it runs flawlessly without errors but i must be missing something.

Also i currently have the macro to run on the active tab/worksheet. Can i have it run on multiple tabs? i have 15 20 and 30 tabs in this example file but in my real file i have many more milage intervals ( some tabs i would not want to select ). It gets tedious having to select one tab at a time, run the macro, rinse and repeat.

For Example Run Macro First, in the first tab. It works perfectly. Go to the second tab and run the first macro. It gives a debug error. If you save the file and reopen it and go to teh second tab and run the macro again it works.

Save Today() As Value To Prevent Changes On Reopen

Jul 30, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that containt a conditional formula to place the current date aka Today() into a cell based on if an entry in the previous cell.

I put in this formula:
=IF(I131>="1",TODAY()," ")

My boss told me to update to this one: (same result)

BOTH will change the saved sheet data if we open it tomorrow (due to using Today()). We want to retain the date that it was entered on (which will always be the date he puts entry into sheet).

Is there a way to save the sheet and update the code for Today() to the date value so it will appear as a date when it's opened in the future?

Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro

Oct 16, 2009

I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.

I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).

The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.

If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.

The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)

The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Compile Error On Close Of Excel 2003 But Not On Close Of Workbook

Mar 22, 2012

I am using Excel 2003.

It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.

These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.

These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.

Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.

Close Workbook With Macro

Sep 22, 2009

I have a workbook that contains 4 macros. This workbook is copied by application with another name. When I run the macro in the copied worksheet, the Original file/workbook is opened automatically, and it is open until the copied workbook is closed.

My question:

1) Is this normal, when a copied workbook invokes a macro from the original workbook, the original workbook opens?

2) Is it possible to close the original workbook while executing the macro from the copied workbook?

3) Will that affect the macro in the copied workbook?

4) If possible to close the original workbook, kindly help me with the code.

Prevent Saving And Allow Only Through Macro

Mar 14, 2007

Prevent saving and allow only through Macro

I am contracting an excel template and need to stop users saving the file using “Save” or “Save As”. I am able to do this by using the private sub below:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Me.Saved = True
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
End Sub

I also understand that by switching to “Designer” mode you can save the file and once re opened designer mode will be switched off. What I need is to allow saving using a macro, is there a code that I can insert in the macro to switch designer mode?

Can I Speed Up The Macro By NOT Saving

Sep 4, 2009

I have this analyze that is runned by a macro in one workbook, and it starts a analyzing-process in another workbook. The data is picked up in the no2 book, and returned to the first book. It is analyzing lots of workbooks, sometimes up to 1000 workbooks, it means that no2 workbook gets a new name and then saved.

I have once heard that the process could be way faster if the workbooks where the analyzes is processed through not were saved, and I actually dont need the books as long as I got the data into my first workbook.

But Im not sure what in the macro that makes it save the no2 workbook, but I would really like to speed up this process. As it is now I have to start the analyze before I go to bed, and the hopefully it's done when I wake up next morning.
