Read Many Cell Values From Closed Workbook

Apr 16, 2009

I've recently discovered the usefulness of VB in excel and have managed to write some basic macros that enhance many of my workbooks. BUT, I've bumped into a problem I can't seem to solve. Please help!

I'm looking to import the values in a large range of cells ( 5 x 5000) in a closed workbook into a range that i specify in an open one, where both workbooks are housed in the same directory. I also want to include logic that allows me to move the 2 files to different directories (the names will never change, only the paths) and have the code still work--I believe i'd use relative path references?

I've found lots of snippets of code on the topic but can't seem to get any of them to work. For instance: http://spreadsheetpage.com/index.php...a_closed_file/

Problem is, I'm so new that I don't even know where to begin pasting the code (objects vs. modules, etc) in the VBA editor.

Values From A Closed Workbook

Feb 9, 2007

I wrote here a few days ago about an issue retrieving a closed worksheets values and I got help from RoyUK(see code below and link), but for some reason the values are never entered into the open worksheet.

Retrieving From A Closed Workbook
Sub FillingSheet()
Dim filetoopen As String
Dim wb As Workbook
filetoopen = Application _
. GetOpenFilename("XL Files (*.xls), *.xls")
On Error Resume Next
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filetoopen, True, True)
With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
. Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value
End With
wb.Close False
Set wb = Nothing
End Sub

Read Values From One Workbook Into An Array

Jul 7, 2006

I am trying to create a "macro" that will read values from one workbook into an array based on a key field. If the key isn't present the cells data is not to be stored. After the records are stored i want to test them agains a range in a differnt workbook. If the data compared matches a stored value, leave it alone. If there is no match, a cell needs to be added with a value stating a differnce.

Like i stated i am new at this and have no clue how to compare an data array to a field. Let alone read the values into the array.

Manipulate Values & Formatting In Closed Workbook

Mar 22, 2008

I have 2 workbooks, one containing all my code and userforms and another containing all my data (which is continuously updated/ dynamic). I want to be able to manipulate the data without ever opening the workbook (at the moment I use the open workbook method, but it is extremely slow). I have found some code (Jwalk) which I think meets my needs (and is instant). I have adapted this so it points to a specific path rather than the active path as below etc. but I need to adapt it further so that:

1. When the data is opened it is formatted exactly the same as it is in the original sheet which includes any coloured cells, bold fonts, cell width, height and so on

2. Any changes I make can be saved back to the original sheet in the closed workbook.

3. The data always opens in a named specific worksheet i.e. "TempSheet" which sits in the workbook containing the code (my code is called from a userform within this workbook).

The code I am using from Jwalk is as follows:

Sub GetDataDemo()

Dim FilePath$, Row&, Column&, Address$

'change constants & FilePath below to suit
'***************************************
Const FileName$ = "Book1.xls"
Const SheetName$ = "Sheet1"
Const NumRows& = 10
Const NumColumns& = 10
FilePath = ActiveWorkbook.Path & ""
'***************************************

I am still learning VBA and can adapt/write small pieces of simple code, I have tried incorporating the paste special method, but in all honesty, don't know what I am doing and it results in lots of errors. Can anyone help me get this working/point me in the right direction? Also, what does 'Const' do? how do I bring in the data without specifying the number of rows, as this will be different every time?

I am having a workbook (say a.xlsm) which has value entry fields and some values are given to another workbook (say b.xlsm) which has some sort of calculations and the result is projected back to the book a. most of the time book b will be closed. I am using Excel 2010.

Pull Data From Closed Workbook Based On Cell Values

Apr 28, 2008

I want to pull data from closed workbook based on cell values of open workbook of column B and the source file name is on cell J1. Actually I save monthly files and opening balnce of current month should take vakues from previous month file.

Suppose current month is May 2008. Then Column Column D for May month shold take value from column G of April 2008. For simplicity the previous monthís name and thus source file name will be placed on cell J1.

The code should loop from column B of source file and current May 2008 file and should pull values for only those items which are in the current file in the Column B. Thus those products which are deleted or newly added item in the current item should not copied. Though for new item no name will be thre in the source file but for deleted items the item might be there in the source file but the code should ignore those value.

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

Feb 6, 2013

I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.

However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:

Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.

Heres the code that I have got.

Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating
Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)

Abort Workbook Open If Workbook Is Read Only.

Dec 12, 2009

I've got several workbooks that users will be using to keep track of individual projects. These workbooks will talk back to a master summary sheet that has the status of all projects on it. The possibility exists that someone else on the network will have the summary book open when the program tries to update it, which would cause an error when it opens as read only. So I want to do something like this.

Pull Value From Closed Workbook Where Workbook Name Is In A Cell

Nov 24, 2007

I want to open an excel file whose name is a value in a spreadsheet, and then pull a value from the spreadsheet I queried into my existing workbook. Here is the syntax i have so far:

to note: I'm calling the workbook in which the macro is located testproject.xls, and I'm using [integer].xls as my list of files that the macro will query. Ultimately, this code will go in a loop.

Set currentCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")
varCellvalue = currentCell.value
Workbooks.Open "path_of_file" & varCellvalue & ".xls"
Windows("testproject.xls").Activate
currentCell.Offset.(0,1).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=[3.xls]Sheet1!R1C1"

The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.

Is Workbook Read Only

Dec 29, 2006

For a couple of reasons I have had to take a workbook off of a local machine and place it on the network so others can access it. I cannot share the workbook because of the macro's and protection on it. At any one time only one person should have full control of workbook. The others only need read only access. I won't go into the whole deal but I was hoping there was a way on startup to detect if the workbook is in read only mode or not (Other than the basic notifications and indications that excel gives as many users either ignore or do not understand them). If so I would like a big message to popup stating this fact to the user and also if possible show them who currently has it open. Lastly, they would have a cancel workbook open option until they get the other user to exit.

Open Workbook As Read-only?

Jan 12, 2013

I am running a call centre with 20 users at peak time. I have 1 user who will always have a master workbook open and saving throughout the day. The remainder of the users during calls will need to open this file as read-only to simply view the latest saved version.

This works however sometimes is takes a over a minute for the file to download from the server for the read only box to appear. I was wondering if there was a way for the other users to view it in a simpler and quicker way?

Also issues with the 1 user saving the file which others have it open as read only?

Add-in Opening A Workbook As Read Only

Feb 9, 2009

I have created an Add-in for use across the business, the add in calculates financial impact based on figures that are stored on the shared drive.

The addin currently opens the workbook, and sets the variables to figures contained in the workbook - and then closes the workbook.

To roll this out to the business - I need to get the add-in to open the workbook as read Only, so that it will allow multiple users to access at once. I have set to open as read only in the past - however this prompts me to save the workbook as something else.

Is there any way I can get this to just open as read only, do what it needs to - and then close; without having the option to save as something else?

Workbook Open In Read Only

Jun 16, 2014

I have a file that's only instruction is to open another workbook in Read Only; this is due to not having network privileges to make the entire folder Read Only.

I'm getting one user on the network where the Workbook.Open script doesn't fire up automatically and I can't see why. Then ocassionally i'm getting users where the file hasn't closed itself after the file has been opened.

Is there any obvious reason for both of these happening?

Code:
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Workbooks.Open FileName:=ThisWorkbook.Path & "iSS.xls", ReadOnly:=True

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

ThisWorkbook.Close False

Change Workbook To Read Only

Jul 29, 2008

I have a shared Excel Workbook, and I am trying to prevent a non-permitted user from making any changes to it. I have managed to hide all of the worksheets bar one - The Warning Page - if the user is not one of my chosen users, but I am having a little trouble setting the worksheet to open as "read-only" if the user is not one that I have listed.

My macro code looks a bit like this:

If Application.UserName = "Vikki" Then
Sheets("Warning!").Visible = False
Sheets("Total").Visible = True
Else
Sheets("Warning!").Visible = True
Sheets("Total").Visible = False
ActiveWorkbook.ChangeFileAccess Mode:=xlReadOnly
End If

But when I am using this, a non-user will get a msg box asking if they want to save the workbook before changing to read only. Can I prevent this msg box from appearing?
