Can VB Open The Most Recently Created File In A Folder

Sep 13, 2006

I have a folder called 'Refresh'. Every week a new file is dropped into that folder. Instead of me placing that new file into my workbook, i would like my macro to just grab it. Is there a way for VB to grab the most recently created file that comes into my 'Refresh' Folder.

Excel VBA To Open Files In Folder With Specific String In Name Of File?

Aug 29, 2012

I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.

SaveAs Worksheet To Another File / Folder While Keeping Original Open / Active?

Apr 15, 2014

I have an Excel Worksheet (let's call it "AA.xlsm") which uses VBA code to loop through column A, update column B with some results/values, and then (for each value in column A) SaveAs the worksheet into a different filename/path as a ".csv" type file.

My line of code for the SaveAs is as follows: Workbooks("AA.xlsm").SaveAs LEpath & CurrFldr, FileFormat:=xlCSV

My problem is that my original worksheet, AA.xlsm, gets closed whereas I need it to stay open/active after each SaveAs iteration.

I am having trouble getting a copy of current workbook to save (with a hopefully unique name) into a vba created folder. The folder creates fine on any drive that I have access to, but the workbook never turns up. The code is only an extract from the whole but it still fails in isolation.

Sub Macro1()
Copyit:
Dim fso
Dim fol As String
Dim flag As String
fol = "E:Excelb4macrobackups" ' change to match the folder path
Ans5 = MsgBox("Create Backup of " & ActiveWorkbook.Name & "?" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & " Backup File Path:" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & fol, vbYesNoCancel + vbExclamation)
If Ans5 = vbNo Then Exit Sub
If Ans5 = vbCancel Then MsgBox "Procedure Terminated!", vbExclamation: Exit Sub.........

Extra Files Created In Same Workbook Folder

Jan 22, 2009

I have a Workbook that is located in a Networked Folder and is used by several people every day. The Workbook has a lot of VBA and also has links to other workbooks. I am noticing that over time there are several extra files being created from this excel workbook, in the same folder. The Workbook is the only file in this folder. They are not associated with any program and are just a File Type. They are titled a series of 8 random Letters and Numbers and range is size from 700 KB to about 1 MB (Slightly smaller then the Workbook file size).

Also, Is possible to automatically delete these files when they are not needed? or better yet is there some way to Prevent these files from being created in the first place?

BeforeSave, Create Folder & Sub-foldername If Has Not Been Created

Oct 13, 2004

Example below is in my macro and when my peer is running this worksheet which has Workbook_Open() enabled in "ThisWorkbook", the outcome is that he can not successfully save this workbook because he doesn't have the folder and sub directory in his C: drive.

How do I code it such that in the event the user does not have the specified folder and sub-foldername, it will automatically create one for him and save it as "C:Spare PartsCritical ListStocking Status.xls".

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _

Excel 2003 :: Extract Variable Rows Of Cells From Files In A Folder To Existing File In Folder

Mar 15, 2013

I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.

At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.

At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).

I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).

The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".

2007 Doesn't Want To Open WB Created In Code

May 17, 2007

In my first workbook I select an area to copy/paste into a new wb with this code (from the board)

[Set source = Range("A55:K109").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)

Dim FName As String
Dim VBComp As VBComponent
Dim wbnew As Workbook
Dim x As String

Set wbnew = Workbooks.Add

Set dest1 = ActiveWorkbook

dest2.Activate
With ActiveWorkbook
FName = .Path & "code.txt"
If Dir(FName) "" Then
Kill FName
End If
For Each VBComp In .VBProject.VBComponents
If VBComp.Type vbext_ct_Document Then
VBComp.Export FName
wbnew.VBProject.VBComponents.Import FName
Kill FName
ElseIf VBComp.Name = "ThisWorkbook" Then
If VBComp.CodeModule.CountOfLines > 0 Then
wbnew.VBProject.VBComponents

The complete code in this workbook sends the entire workbook to one person and it creates a new workbook and pastes a range and the VB code needed to run the button it copies and sends this to another person.

The codes runs excellent in 2003. In 2007 I can get the entire workbook to send to the first person, but

The email to the second person will send, but they can not open the workbook. I get the error "File Format or file extension is not valid. Please verify file is not corrput and that extension matches file.

I know trust access to visual basic has to be enabled in 2003 for this code to run, so in 2007 I went to the Excel options trust center and clicked the box which says Trust access to the VBA project object model.

When I step through this code everything looks great. The worksheet area is correct, the button is copied, the code can be seen in the properties window, but then I get the email and it will not open.

There is even a line of code that kills the file after the mail is sent (temporary saving location is the desktop). So, I used a ' and made it a comment line so I could try to open the file from my desktop. It will not open there either. File extension being used is .xlsm
