Check File Open With Random Path
I have an application that requires users to download a file from a location that is then imported at their execution into the application. I've done my best to counsel users to download the file to their desktop (for ease of locating) and to stick with a standard filename so that there are no errors. Some of these people just don't take direction well, will save the file wherever, or save the name inappropratly, or worse, open up multiple copies of the same file corrupting the name: ie: FileName.xls, FileName.xls(1), FileName1.
Open File With Variable Path & Part Name
1 I need to open a csv file in order to use data in it at location "C:BarkingEMCIN" to input into an xls spreadsheet. I then need to use the info from the xls spreadsheet along with other info input by users to produce another .csv and it be deposited at "C:BarkingEMCOUT"
The name of the file at "C:BarkingEMCIN" will change everyday or even multiple times a day and be in the format "AVA_DA_260208_BPL_EDF_001.CSV" "AVA DA " will remain the same "260208" will be todays date the next 2 will be interchangeable depending on requirements and use BPL EDF and SSE will be interchangeable depending on requirements and 001 will be the version whcih will be changable. _ underscores will be used as seperators
They will then be save in the format "NOM_DA_260208_BPL_EDF_001.CSV" using the same prinipals as before but automatically saving as the next available when needed with a prompt to tell the user what it will be
Open Workbook Macro With Variable Path
I am having trouble getting a macro to open a specific file from an open workbook in the same folder based on the current path of the open file. The application is this... I have two files in the same folder. The first is for data entry and it contains a macro button that will open the second which is a template to which the data in the first will be copied. I can easily do this with a fixed path to the second file, however, I would like to be able to move or copy the folder containing these files to other locations or computers without having to change the path each time. I would like to base the path to the second file minus the file name on the first (already open file) path. Assuming that the first file containing the desired macro button is already open, here is one of many of my attempts...
Workbooks.Open " ActiveWorkbook.PathJob Tracker -.xls"
Assuming the second file is the active workbook, I achieved a similar path assignment when saving the file...
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "Application.Path/Jobs Active/" & "Job Tracker -" & Range(" '[Job Tracker -.xls]Specifications'!$A$6").Value
Macro For Relative File Path

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only
I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...
I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...
How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...
An example of "DestFile" might be;
S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls
(the file name length may vary)
What code can I use to consistently trim it back to;
S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction
as the "DestFldr" variable?

Open File Macro, Error - Incrementing File Name
When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).
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.

Open File Macro: Same Directory As Macro Workbook
I created folder on my desktop to hold various documents. I have master excel document which contains forms and command buttons that open documents from same folder. Is there a way to change code instead of having full file path to specify current directory.

Also when I open with command button word document, I have a button on word document to close. I can close document but word application is still active. Can I close word application with the document at the sam time. This is the code I'm using: "ActiveWindow.Close"
Save File As Text Using Cells For Path & File Name
How to save a file, with file- name. but the directory is to be read in worksheet "towns" in Cell1 (brussels) and filename in worksheet "names" in cell B2 (i.e. winter), so it saves to c:russelswinter.txt as a wordpad or kladblok txt file, that keeps a number, so each time we push a button "go back from worksheet names to worksheet towns" the "number" that is saved in the txt document goes up by value +1. In Flemisch, the "old" code goes as follows, and saves the number in the txt file Factuurnummer7.txt. But I want that the file name (here: FactuurNummer7) can be a variable text issue, which has to be read - as already noticed - in cell B2 (with the word WINTER). So the are 2 worksheets: towns, ans names
pad$ = Application.DefaultFilePath
'controle = Dir(pad$ + "FactuurNummer7.txt")
'If controle = "" Then GoTo EerstAanmaken
'Open pad$ + "Factuurnummer7.txt" For Input As #10

User Input For File & Path For File Copy
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?
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

fs.CopyFile oldPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls", newPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls"

VBA Macro To Find Specific File & Open
I've got a VBA macro set up in one Master excel file that manipulates a number of other files. Both the Master and the other files are all in a folder which is currently called C:Documents and SettingsusernameDesktopPipeline and my VBA script has this defined as the filepath and works exactly as I need it to. I will be moving the folder "Pipeline" to a shared drive on my server so my staff can access it, and will be sending it to colleagues who will be installing it on their own servers so they and their staff can use it. Is there a way to amend the code so that the VBA in the Master file looks in the folder in which it is locate, "Pipeline", no matter what the filepath leading to the "Pipeline" folder is?

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open
I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,
Dir /b >Test.csv
And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.
I looked into this and discovered that it’s not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ‘Workbook_Open’ etc.
I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesn’t contain a macro to auto open and because csv’s usually don’t like macros.
I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.

Separate File Name From File Path
I am trying to separate a filename from a filepath in Excel VBA 2003.
I am using the Application. GetOpenFilename command to get the user to select the correct file.
However, this also seems to record the filepath.
I am trying to separate the filename out of this so that each file( name) activates a different sub procedure.
I am storing the result of the getopenfilename as a Variant.
At the moment I am having to specify the full path in order to get each sub to run. This is fine for 1 user - but not for others as the files are stored in different locations for each user.
Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html
I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:
- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)
- Copy paste as values
- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)
- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)
- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file
My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.
Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.
I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.
Get A File Path Using Vba
I'm using this code to import a file, but I want to be able to save just the path (with no file name) to a variable to use for the output file. This code saves the path and file.
FileName = Application. GetOpenFilename _
FileFilter:=Filt, FilterIndex:=FilterIndex, Title:=Title)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I didn't know but what there was a function that I could apply to the 'FileName' variable that would remove the file name...don't know.
Get Rid Of Path In File Name
How can I get the name of a workbook WITHOUT the path when I have the name WITH the path?
To be more specific. When I use "Application. GetOpenFilename" the result is a file name for say "my_book" including the path. With this I can open the file using "Workbooks.Open" and Excel will show me "my_book". But when I want to reference this workbook later on in say "Workbooks(my_book)", then I need the file name without the path. How can I get that one in VBA?
Till now I was using "CurDir" to find out the path after opening the file and just subtracted it from the full file name. This seamed to be fine. But now I had a situation where CurDir gave me a path with abbreviations (~),

Open Workbook Where Named Cell Contain Name & Path, Copy Range And Paste Values
I am successfully opening a .csv file using a variable value stored in a named range in my Main file (the variable includes the directory and path).
I copy data from the .csv file to the Main file then I need to close the .csv file without saving but I want to do that by using the
command where "xxxx" is the namedrange in my Main file which stores the .csv filename (without the directory and path prefix).
I can use the
command but if I have another workbook open, this one closes instead of the .csv file I opened from the macro.
I realise this is probably very basic and I've searched the forums but can't find any identical postings.
Return File Path
I have a UserForm with a button that, when clicked, opens up a File Directory Browser that the user can select the file of their choice.

If fn = False Then
MsgBox "Nothing Chosen"
MsgBox "You chose " & fn
'now that you have the name, you can open it or do something else
What I would like is the filepath (of the file they choose) to appear as the displayed caption on another button or label.
Extract File Name From Path
I am having trouble with a macro of mine. Essentially it opens a file, based on user input (Full path is stored in variable FilePath), but then I want to select that workbook, and therefore need just the .xls filename. I figured I would create a new variable, FileName, to pull out the filename.
How can I edit the string in my macro to extract just the filename.xls from the full path?
We have built quite a large Excel based program that contains quite a lot of coding. the program seems to work fine the majority of the time but every so often we recieve an error message that causes excel to not save, or to crash and shut down.
The message that comes up is "File/Path Error"
Now I've just done some hunting around online and some links I have found speak of declairing the document location correctly in the coding. I was wondering could this be the issue at hand?
Anytime the document needs to save, there is a cell with the directory path and file path declared as a variable (Actually as Dim String) within the coding. Is this the best way to declare a file path?
Also, the problem seems intermittent. We Compile the VBA coding before saving, we also use a Clean Project add-in within Excel. These processes usually help but every so often the problem comes back.
