ive tried creating a macro/code that when you open a certain workbook it automatically deletes the contents. you see i have a workbook containing 100 sheets that i need to update each week but i have to delete all the contents first, is there a quick way to do this when i open the workbook up?
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 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.
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?
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.
I have an employee program that creates a new employee then saves the file using the the surname from the contents of one cell
What I'd like to do is to enter a surname into a cell, then click a button that will open the employee file (.xls) using the surname in the cell to find that specific file, so that I can amend an employee file. Is there a way to do this? or an alternative?
I would like to write a Sub that will see if a workbook is open and if it is not then open it. I know how to have a macro automatically open a workbook, but I run into problems when the macro runs and tries to open an already opened workbook.
I am trying to create a macro that will open certain files based on the contents of a cell. There are three possible files that I will want to open.
File1.xlsx File2.xlsx File3.xlsx
If the contents of cell Q2 = 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 then open "File1.xlsx" If the contents of cell Q2 = 60, 70 or 80 then open "File2.xlsx" If the contents od cell Q2 = 90, 100, or 110 then open "File3.xlsx"
If the contents of Q2 do not equal any of the possibilities listed then I would like an error box to show with the option to end or debug the code.
I did a macro on my mac to transfer a sheet from one workbook to another worbook. It works very well when the destination workbook is open. Therefore I wanted to add some piece of code to check if the destination workbook is open. If not then I wanted the macro to open it before tranfering the sheet. Here is the code I´m using for tranfering the sheet
Sub Transfer_Sluttet() If ActiveSheet.Index <> Sheets.Count Then Application.DisplayAlerts = False Set ws = ActiveSheet Sheets(ws.Index + 1).Delete ws.Move Before:=Workbooks("Sluttet.xls").Sheets("sheet2") 'Moves active sheet to beginning of named workbook. 'Replace Test.xls with the full name of the target workbook you want. Application.DisplayAlerts = True End If End Sub
This is the type of macro I useually use on my pc to check if a workbook is open and if not then open it
If IsWorkbookOpened("Filename.xls", "C:Documents and ..................
I am looking for a code that will search the contents for every row in Column B and count the first four letters, any other letters, which come after the first four letters; I would like the code to delete them. For example. If “Sell now” were in cell B1 it would become "Sell" or if “Vend later” were in cell B2 it would become “Vend”, and so on.
Is there a way using a macro to check each row in Column D and Column F for "0", so that when both columns in the same row have "0" and only when both columns in the same row have "0" the contents "0" in that row of Column D and F will be deleted?
What I need to do is starting at cell E251 of the Cheque Logging Sheet I need the code to check the cell for any contents and if there is nothing in the cell then DELETE THE CONTENTS then move to cell E250 and do the same all the way up to E2
My ACCESS problem is that even if the cells in Column E contain nothing the only way that I can upload the spreadsheet to Access is by deleting the contents of the empty cells. Currently I am doing this manually but I would rather sit back and have VBA do it for me...
I've been pressing on with my project and figured out that I really do not know the difference between Deleting and Clear contents. I really thought they were the same but am now unsure. I guess I have 2 questions. Which is better to use? what I'm doing is removing old data and importing new data. and which is more efficient for writing code.
I'm trying to put together functionality which allows the user to remove cell content within a selected row. I've chosen to remove the cell content rather than to delete the whole row because I need to maintain the 'Input Range'.
The code below is the script which I've put together to clear the cell contents.
Code: Sub DelRow() Dim msg Sheets("Input").Protect "password", UserInterFaceOnly:=True Application.EnableCancelKey = xlDisabled Application.EnableEvents = False msg = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete this row?", vbYesNo)
The code works fine if the user selects one row. However, if the user selects mutliple rows, although the text values are removed from all rows, only the 'Interior Color' is removed from the first rather than all and I'm not sure why.
I need a formula that would scan a given column for data, get the first available data from the first available cell ( D1 ), perform computation, input result in a different cell ( A1 ) and then delete the contents of D1 and move on the D2 and so on till end of data. So far I have been able to have the result in A1 but could not achieve the deletion of D1 contents. The purpose is to prevent the formula from scanning the data column from D1 again. In this way, the datawould be made available in one column and when the data have been processed the column would be empty and the result would be in another column.
I have data that daily needs to be refreshed and printed to pdf.
I figure the simplest way to do this would be to task schedule the workbook to open daily. Then on open it will refresh the data, print it after all data has been refreshed and close the workbook.
I set it up originally without the need to print so I have all the queries set to refresh when opening the file, however when I now try and put the code to print to pdf on the workbook open event it runs before the queries are finished running. (Query notes: queries were created through Microsoft query, and are accessing a MySQL database queries set to refresh when opening the file queries set to enable background refresh).
Code: Sub CopyRow()' 'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied. ' Dim cCell As Range Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1) Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet2").Select Rows("2:2").Select
Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.
I'm trying to figure out a way to find a specific sheet in a workbook that does not contain the macro. Within the macro I have a cell which holds the name of the specific sheet I would like to find but I can't get it to work for some reason...
