Skip Saving The Code Everytime You Open The Workbook
May 8, 2009
I have a workbook with lots of code to automate several things that I do. It does a great job at doing things I need it to do, but it takes foreeeveeerrr to save the workbook. The code has made the workbook a large file, and it takes a few minutes to save it. Is there a way to skip saving the code everytime you open the workbook. I don't ever need to change to code so I don't need to save it every time.
My company has files that are already in use. I don't know too many details about how they work, but somehow saving the file will screw it up and my boss has to go back and reset something or other to correct it. Obviously it's connected to some other software somewhere. The code below will block Save and Save-As. BUT how do I get the file to hold onto the code without actually saving the file after the code is added (since the file shouldn't be saved)?
VB: Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean) If SaveAsUI = False Then Cancel = True
I use excel 2002 but some of my office are on 97, i want to add a small workbook open event code which works for me but debugs for the others?? The code is basically, go to a tab, on that tab and that range sort..
Adding some additional code to prevent someone from saving the workbook under a different name. Currently if someone tried to enter data after the allotted time period, it would allow them to in any "unlocked" cells. When exiting or trying to save the file with this new data, they will get a message stating something to the effect that this is a read only file would you like to save as another name, which would allow the user to circumvent what I'm trying to accomplish. The end result would be they'd need a new spreadsheet.
I am trying to write code to open a new (blank) workbook while in an existing workbook (I am then going to pass data between the two which is easy). When I try to record the code to get the syntax for opening a new workbook it will not record any code. I also need to name the new workbook based on text in a cell in the existing workbook. I just saw before posting this that the code;
will open a new workbook now I just need to name the new workbook based on text in my existing workbook.
I am trying to write code in the VB behind Excel that will allow me to navigate to an excel file (can be open or closed) and delete it. ie navigates to file xxx.xls at N:/xxx/xxx/ selects the file and then deletes it.
I need the code to allow a user to select a column of their choice in an open workbook of their choice so that data can be lookuped up and changed. I am happy to create the code to do the lookup/changing, however the nearest I have found is the use of an inputbox which is limited to the active spreadsheet only. Some people have said the input box could be used over to another spreadsheet but I have not found that to work.
What I will need returned is the workbook name, sheet name and column. That will allow me to point to that and do the task.
This code could be used by 5 people and those 5 people could be running it on 20 different spreadsheets.
I thought this would be easy to find but it has eluded me. When using Excel normally, if you do a simple lookup formula, or create pivot function, excel prompts the user to select the workbook/sheet.
I need to open 9 files in different worksheet. If the files is not present i want to get to the next available one. I don't understant the following code will work once, but not 2 times in arrow. The error handler routine works only once and then if the file is not present I will get a error 1004 (on this line Workbooks.Open Filename:="c:" & openfile). I know that the file is not present but the error gets trap the first time and not the second time.
I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.
I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.
I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need
A prompt to open workbook Copy range (c8,d69) Close work sheet Paste special .value (c8,D69)
I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.
My excel program on my home computer has a default number format so that when I type in a number such as "1", the spreadsheet displays 1E-20. If I enter the number as "1.0", the display will show correctly. I have tried changing the formats for the spreadsheet, but I still cannot get the program to work correctly. I tried reinstalling office, but nothing changed.
I have Monthly sales sheets that import my cash register data into them. I wanted to set them up to do everything without being there. So I have my task manager open excel at 9:30pm everyday and it runs the macro to import the data into the correct day of the month. Here is the workbook
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim dTime As Date dTime = Time If dTime >= TimeValue("9:30 PM") And _ dTime < TimeValue("9:40 PM") Then ImportData End If End Sub
This is in my July spreadsheet only. So is there a way to make it know which month spreadsheet to open on the 1st of the month? So come August 1st it will automatically open the August workbook and input the data for the first day? By using the date?
I m trying to bypass some code if a certain condtion is meet. If Cell A1 has a zero in it I want to skip the following code and continue one with the rest of the macro. This is the code I have.
j = 0 RowCount = Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "a").End(xlUp).Row cell_a = Range("A1").Value If Not cell_a = 0 Then Rows("1:" & cell_a * 2).Select Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown Range("A1").Select For i = 1 To cell_a * 2 Range("a" & i).Select ActiveCell.Value = j j = j + 0.5 Next i
I put the If Not/Then statement in there to try and figure out what do. But I don't know what to put after the THEN statement. Basically I want run the code after the THEN statement if there isn't a zero in cell A1 and skip the code if A1 contains a zero.
i have a workbook blank template for my colleagues to fill in, they fill in this blank template and save it under the serial number of the item they are creating. However a lot of errors exist when they input the serial number inside the workbook where the serial number is a duplicate of a former serial number.
Anyhow i was wondering is there any way when they input the serial number into the worksheet that i could get it to save in a separate workbook and then have conditional formatting to check those serial numbers in the workbook to see if they match?
I am trying to export data from Access to an Excel file without saving the file. I have been unable to get my macro to work. Right now when the macro runs it only opens a new Excel workbook but does copy the data into the workbook.
I believe the issue lies in the generated strSQL. I suspect that it has to do with the Status field value equal to IVR Call Needed. Maybe the spaces in the value?
Here is my code.
Code: Private Sub Export() 'Step 1: Declare your variables Dim MyDatabase As DAO.Database
I'm making a macro that filters a data set and then inputs a value into all of the rows for a certain column. When no results show up for the filter I receive a runtime 1004 error because there are no cells to select.
My Splash screen opens a few seconds after the workbook has loaded. Is there a way to make the workbook open minimzed until the the splash screen closes then open properly? What I trying to say is that only the splash screen is visible until it closes.
