Relative File Path VBA?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a WinForm, which I'm calling via VBA's Shell command:

Sub Button1_Click()
Shell "C:TemplateFuncitons.exe " + ActiveWorkbook.FullName, 1
End Sub

I made this module an Excel Add-in and added it as a button in the quick access toolbar. Now, the idea is for the WinForm.exe and the Excel.xla to always be in the same directory (go hand in hand). I want to make a relative path for the .exe which will be the path to the folder where the .xla is + the string "TemplateFunctions.exe" in the end.

How can I run a DOS .bat (batch) file from within a Macro? This is what I came up with so far and it seems to work. The only thing is that I need this to have relative paths, running from the same directory the Excel Workbook is in.

Ive tried using ActiveWorkBook.path but that doesnt work, maybe im just using it the wrong way

Get Relative File Path Of Workbook

Feb 16, 2008

I work on multiple workbooks. They all calculate a lot of functions and I am forced to create multiple workbooks to do these calculations. Linking to other workbooks basically displays the results of workbook1 and works from there.


I need to keep an overview of these files, so I store them in different folders all within the same 'master' folder. So let's say: master folder is FolderMaster, and this contains folderA, folderB, folderC. FolderA contains workbookA1, workbookA2; folderB contains workbookB1, workbookC2 and finally folderC contains workbookC1 and workbookC2.

Suppose that this hierarchy might change. Moving eg workbook A2 to folderB. This would cause a #REF if it is linked in another workbook.

So I thought: organize your hierarchy in a 'master workbook' and store all paths to the individual files in a worksheet. If I link to a specific folder I do not directly link to the actual folder, but would use INDIRECT and grab the filepath from the masterworkbook. If the path to a workbook change I do not have to update all individual links, but only change the path in the masterworkbook. Right?

But 'how' is the big one here. How do you formulate your path to a file? It can not be the entire file path since that's variable... (sometimes 'hd:User1:....'; sometimes 'HD:User2'..."). So I think I need something as mentioned in this office help thing. But I have no clue. I do not want to use VBA, I hoped for another solution to this.

Hyperlink Does Not Maintain Path To Target File

Sep 19, 2007

I read about Hyperlinks in the August 2006 "OZGRID" Newsletters but found no answer.

Assume 2 workbooks - book1 and book2, both located in "c:" (root of drive C)

Now, In book1 I have declared an HL to book2 using CTRL+K and upon clicking in that cell the book2 is opened.

After MOVING(!) book1 to a new location (D:DATA) and clicking the HL - I get an Error "cannot open the specified file".

While book1 was still in root C: - I tried to force to c:ook2.xls by typing it in the HL address window but after saving, Excel deletes the "c:" and leaves "book2.xls" only I think because both files were located I the same directory.

I am aware that my "problem" can be solved by using the function HYPERLINK but I would like to learn (if possible) how to insert an HL using CTRL+K that will maintain the path although moving the file which contains the HL).

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only

Sep 27, 2006

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?

Save File As Text Using Cells For Path & File Name

Dec 20, 2009

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
'Input #10, Nummer1
'Close #10......................

Relative Path With Different Directories - Especially Up One Level

Jan 4, 2011

Is there any way to reference a directory that is up one level from the ActiveWorkbook.Path?

I am trying to accomplish three goals:

1. Maintain a Master Database in a root directory and pull data from a subdirectory - EASY:

VB : FilePath = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "sub-DirectoryName"

2. Maintain a Minor Database located in a sub-Directory, Named by Month, and pull data from the Master Database located in the Root Directory (up one level). Which I cannot find the right syntax for - ".." does not work.

3. Maintain a Minor Database in a sub-Directory, Named by Month, and pull data from a different Minor Database in a Different sub-Directory (e.g. up one level to root directory, then down one level to "January"). Which I also cannot find the right syntax for.

The Databases are going to be moved around A LOT, so I have to use relative paths.

Wildcard In Path- Relative To Current Sheet

Dec 5, 2008

i am trying to do, i have a spreadsheet with 100+ tabs all with the day of the year. Jan1,Jan2,Jan3...Feb23,Feb24,Feb25... etc etc. I want to pull all of the same values for each of these sheets on a single tab (using vlookups, hlookups and reformatting the information for a macro to input all of this data into a database)

My question is, how can I put a entry form, lets call it a1 and fill in the tab i want the contents of the page to update with? For example, if i input "Jan18" in a1, all formulas on the page look for their source information on A1.

Plan Path And Actual Path Distance Calculation?

Feb 11, 2014

I am using an XY scatter chart that displays the planned path and an actual path as I go. The planned path is set up in 100' increments and goes 12000' and actual path varies along the way.

My data that I use is the Northing (ft), Easting (ft) and Vertical Section (ft) for both the planned path and actual path.

I was wondering if there was an east way to get that information from the chart or if there is a formula that would allow me to calculate distance between the two points by using the data I use for my chart.

Hyperlink Initial Path

Aug 14, 2008

When inserting a hyperlink in an Excel cell, the default pathname for the new link is always the current pathname of the workbook. After navigating to a distant pathname and inserting a hyperlink, inserting the next hyperlink in the next cell starts all over again at the current path.

Is there a method of telling Excel to start looking in z:\ABC instead of the current path? This would eliminate navigating through the entire path for each link.

A macro that handles the hyperlink and puts up a navigation window or something like that would be ok.

Save Copy As Same Path And Name

Jul 1, 2008

I want a Macro which will copy my workbook and paste it into a new workbook. Then it will automatically save it under the SAME name as the original and the SaveAs Box must show up (for cosmetic fixes). It is important it asks if it wants to save it under the same name. Example: My file is called "Summary_2008" and when I hit the Macro it will do those things and it will ask me if I want to save it in the SAME directory under the name "Summary_2008" (I will only add a number then).

(The macro must know how to read the original name since I have 7 possible filenames - it depends on which company I choose, that is why it is important it is saved under the same name)

Sub Zamenjaj()
Dim WS As Worksheet
For Each WS In Worksheets
Zadnja_vrstica = WS.UsedRange.Rows.Count
Zadnji_stolpec = WS.UsedRange.Columns.Count
For rwIndex = 1 To Zadnja_vrstica
For colIndex = 1 To Zadnji_stolpec
With WS.Cells(rwIndex, colIndex)
If WS.Cells(rwIndex, colIndex).HasFormula Then..........................

VBA To Save As In Specific Path With Prompt

Oct 6, 2011

I'd like a macro that will:

Save my workbook
Open the SaveAs box with the path already pointing to a specific directory and with the Name and file format already entered (.xls)

This is basically to save time navigating through our folder structure (which is a real mess). I don't want to automatically saveas the file as the target folder will change each month and the last part of the file name will chance (month). So I'd like a bit of flexibility rather than total automation.

Macro To Save Xls To PDF With Path & Naming Convention

Mar 31, 2014

I am using the below macro to save my workbook with in the correct path and naming convention.

In fact, as I also need a pdf file from that excel file, I tried to change the below macro and replace ".xlsm" by ".pdf"... However acrobat does not like it..

HTML Code: 

Sub PDF()
'created by Gregory Charbonnel
'ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="Z:FOLDER & FILE MANAGEMENTREview (ETF)PDF ETFETF_" & Format(Now(), "dd_mm_yyyy") & ".pdf", _
' FileFormat:=xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

I guess that I should use the print option which gives me that when I record the macro. how to implement my naming convention + path in that macro.

HTML Code: 

ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True, _
