Saves A Template With Macro (XLTM) As A Normal File (XLSX)

Sep 10, 2009

When I prepare a file with macro's (to be used by other people), I save this file as a template with macro's with the extension *.xltm (template with macro).
Therefore no one can overwrite my file. These other people can open this template (e.g. double-click, but not file-open). But when these people save this file, Excel automatically saves it as a normal Excel-file with the extension *.xlsx.
Ok, a message is seen after pressing <enter> or clicking Save, but does normal users know, what they have to do then?

If I'm making a template with macro's, I want Excel to have this file saved as a file with macro's. Whatever did I make a file with macro's for? Is this a bug or is it done on purpose?

Custom File Name At Startup Using Macro Enabled Template Format (XLTM)

Jul 17, 2012

So I am trying to make a file that when opened will act as a template does and change the file name on start-up.

Typically, the template changes the file name by appending one number (e.g. "Book Template REV 1.1.xltm' upon opening would change the file name to 'Book Template REV 1.11.xlsx'). What I want to do, however, is to custom the name change so I could use the file 'Book Template REV 1.1.xltm' while having it change the file name upon opening to 'Custom Name 567.xlsx', without a user being notified of the change (since typically when a template opens the file, the user has no notification that the file name has changed ever so slightly).

Export Data From A Template File To Total List File Using Macro In Template File

Dec 18, 2012

I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):

Macro 1: clears order
Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.

It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.

I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.

Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons.
Row 11 includes the heading for order data.

For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.

The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)

File and Folder info:

To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later):
Template file name: template_order.xlsm
Template file location: \servershared emplate

Total list file name: total_list.xlsx
Total list file location: \servershared otal

Selection info:

The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10
The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11
The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty).
(If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).

When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.

After Macro Saves File Msgbox To Confirm Save As Completed

Jan 18, 2014

I have a macro which works well. All it does is save a file to a specified location on my network. However, after a file is saved there is no prompt telling the user that the file was saved successfully leaving them wondering whether the macro actually worked.

VB:
Public Sub SaveAs() ThisFile = Range("X2").Value
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="legdcAudits" & ThisFile & ".xlsm", FileFormat:=52

Excel 2007 :: Macro That Saves To A Specific File But Has Spaces In It

I am using Excel 2007. I have pasted my code below. It works fine unless it has a space, in which case it inserts %20. In this case, sRange2 = ActiveSheet.Range("E11") will always have a space in it since this is where i store a job's name.

Sub Macro1()
Dim sRange1 As String
Dim sRange2 As String
Dim sRange3 As String

Exporting Data From Master File To Template File (Auto-Populate Template)

May 6, 2014

I've attached 2 test files, one is the database master file containing the projects (each row represents a project, unique reference number in column A) and the other is the blank template file i'm hoping to export data into and then save down with the naming convention "column A_column B.xlsx"

Kept the test files simple but would need to modify any code to apply to much larger database consisting of many more fields etc.

How To Save File With Correct File Extension (XLS Or XLSX)

Mar 12, 2014

How can I save worksheet from existing workbook as a new workbook with extension .xls or .xlsx depending on the version of Excel on which the original was opened and no matter the extension of original?

My code that I was trying to create all above does not work, because even if I am using Excel 2007, 2010 or 2013 it will still be saving only as .xls.

Tab Delimited File Saves Commas As Dot

Jan 30, 2008

I'm using Excel 2000 swedish version, that is we use comma to seperate decimals not dot. I have a macro that saves a sheet as .txt file (tab delimited). However in the sheet (journal voucher) I need to enter a couple of numbers all with 2 decimal, that is 5 is 5,00 and so on. But then, when I save the sheet to a .txt file using a macro all the commas are saved as dots and since I'm importing the file to SAP it will not accept the dots. Is there some way ( changes in macro) I can prevent the commas from becoming dots when I save the .txt file?

The save macro is the commomly used

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Documents and Settings& strText & ".txt", _
FileFormat:=xlText, CreateBackup:=False
ActiveWorkbook.Close
ThisWorkbook.Activate

Master Workbook - Saving File With XLSX Extension

Jun 23, 2014

I have a master workbook that contains macros and has an xlsm extension.

One macro in the workbook copies one of the worksheets to a new workbook. I then want to save this new workbook as an xlsx file. I use the following code line:

.SaveAs Filename:=Extract_Save_Name & ".xlsx", FileFormat:= _
xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled, CreateBackup:=False

However, when I run the code I get an error:

"This extension cannot be used with the selected file type."

The new workbook does not contain any macros and if I save the workbook "manually" as an xlsx it saves fine.

If I change the code above to have "xlsm" it works fine - but I don't want that extension.

How To Alter Fixed XLSX File To Check For Non Blank Cells

Dec 19, 2012

I have attempted to alter this example to simply check if the cells are not blank by replacing the "X" with "<>", but I get errors in the SMALL function--it looks like the IF statement is just returning an array with all of the values set to FALSE, and none of the values in the array call out a location of the next filled cell.

How could you alter your fixed XLSX file to check for non-blank cells instead of "X" specifically?

Blurry Chart When Using Camera Tool / File Becomes Non-dynamic When Saved As Xlsx

Mar 24, 2012

Description:The chart shown in the file is a picture using the Camera Tool. The real chart is in the worksheet "Chts". When using the dropdown & radio button, the chart is supposed to change accordingly.

Problem 1:The picture from the camera tool seem to be blurry. The lines also seem thicker. Any rectifications for this?

Problem 2:If I save this file as "xlsx", the chart will not change dynamically when the dropdown is changed.

Excel 2010 :: Right Click (save As) Saves Inoperative XLSM File

Mar 22, 2012

Excel 2010, Win 7. I have attached a .xlsm file to an email. The contained macros run perfectly, and one of them is "public" so it shows up in "Developer - Macros", and "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" lists.

If the recipient clicks and drags the attachment to a folder, or copy/pastes the attachment, it works fine. (Macros are enabled, etc.)

However, if the recipient right clicks on the email attachment, and selects "SAVE AS" from the item list, the file saves, has the right name and extension, looks ok (the icon has the exclamation point, etc), and it is the correct size, but it simply will not load. You can double click, do a file open, etc. but it will not load. It's a hidden workbook, but if you "open it" and Alt-F11 to show the VBA editor, it isn't there!

It's not stopping the project - we simply tell them to click/drag, etc. but I totally do NOT understand why that happens.

Using Save Invoice With New Name Macro But Need It To PDF Not XLSX

Aug 13, 2013

I am currently using some of Mr. Excels macro coding to firstly create consecutive invoice numbers and secondly save the new file into a destination folder and clear out the cells that have had data in them. This part seems to work flawlessly. I have noticed though that the new .xlsx file has the macro buttons viewable on it and to me looks unprofessional if i send out an invoice to a customer that has the buttons shown. So my resolution is to export the file as a PDF rather than the .xlsx.

My code is as follows

Code:
Sub NextInvoice() Range("H13").Value = Range("H13").Value + 1
Range("B24:H43").ClearContents
End Sub

Sub SaveInvWithNewName()
Dim NewFN As Variant
' Copy Invoice to a new workbook

Running Macro Over Multiple XLSX Files

Oct 2, 2013

how to run my Macro over multiple (about 60) .xlsx files. I have been looking around, but haven't quite got anything working yet.

I have all the files in the same folder with similar names (i.e. Subject_01.xlsx, Subject_02.xlsx, etc.).

What I'd like is:

*open Subject_01
*run script (some calculations, copy/pasting, my script for this is working fine)
*save file under a different name (i.e. Subject_01_processed.xlsx)
*close file
*again for Subject_02, Subject_03, etc.

Additionally, I have a second question: after I have the processed .xlsx files, I'd like to copy some cells from each .xlsx file (e.g. A1-H1) to a new file. There, I'd like the data from Subject_01 to for example be in cells A1-H1, from Subject_02 in cells A2-H2, etc.

Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.

All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.

Visible Sheets To Be Hidden With The Exception Of The Sheet Called "open". Then Is Saves The File

Sep 9, 2008

i am using the macro below to get excel to hide all sheets but the one called "open"...

PHP
Subsavemini()

ActiveWorkbook.Unprotect"letmein"

ForEachshInThisWorkbook.Worksheets
IfNotsh.Name="open"Thensh.Visible=xlVeryHidden
Nextsh

ActiveWorkbook.Save
EndSub

So the workbook is protected with the password "letmein", and the VB code above in theory should unlock the workbook, allowing all visible sheets to be hidden with the exception of the sheet called "open". Then is saves the file.

Now heres the odd bit... it works for certain people, but not for others. I have made sure those it wont work for are not doing anything weird and they are not.

The workbook i am using has a code that only opens certain sheets for certain users. I as a master user have access to all sheets. I can go into the users sheets and click the button that activates the macro above myself and it works fine, but for some users it wont work.

Embed Template Within File

Jan 7, 2007

I have a file with two sheets - Main and Reference. The file has a macro that when used from Main sheet displays some data (images to be specific) from the Reference sheet. The main sheet is of a specific format and has some buttons to call the macro.

I want to have the capability to create any number of main sheets of the same format. I know this can be done by saving the Main sheet as a template and right clicking on a sheet and clicking 'Insert..'. But that would require the template to be stored in the excel start file on the local computer.

I want to know if there is any way the worksheet template can be stored within an excel file, so that if the file is sent to people on a different computer, the user can easily add more worksheets using the template?

Open Text File Into Excel Template

Jan 10, 2010

I work for a company that has about 650 locations. Each location has a location manager that is responsible for submitting a Performance Review spreadsheet for all the employees at their location.

Currently I have an Excel file that has all employees/locations. One of the columns on my spreadsheet is "Location ID"...which is literately a number we've assigned to our Locations. I have an Excel template saved that I'd like each Location to open into.

Can someone help me? I need each location to be it's own spreadesheet...which I have a template created already. I'd prefer to find an automated way to do this...rather than manually creating 650 spreadsheets.

I'd prefer to do this in anoter application, such as MS Access, but senior management already made the decision this will be done in Excel...so I'm stuck with what I got.
