Macro For Opening Series Of Spreadsheets And Copying The Data - 1004 Error
Aug 20, 2014
The macro (used to) go down the list of spreadsheets and copy certain data from them into this master workbook. Now I'm getting a "'C:Users310108841DesktopTestFolder' could not be found" error and don't know why.
The error appears to happen here:
What's more infuriating is that this appears to happen at random. I have been trying all afternoon to get it to work, and had no luck. I have literally just run it now, and it works fine. I can't believe it just works at random.
worked at one point but now gives a '1004' runtime error. What I am trying to accomplish is have the user display a line of data on a userform, modify it, then write it back to another sheet in the workbook.
The following script runs fine the first time I click the command button on an Access form but after I close the Excel workbook and click the command button again to edit a new spreadsheet, I get the follow error message:
Run-time error '1004': Method "Columns' of object'_Global failed.
It fails here:
The script is being run from Access 2007 and is opening a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 (but using xls extension)
Code: Private Sub IdahotoExcel_Click() Dim dlg As FileDialog Dim idahofile As String
I created a form that takes information from textboxes and places them onto a new worksheet. This is done about 20 times until I have 20 different worksheets.
What I'm looking for is a way to Copy only certain information from all the spreadsheets and paste it onto one spreadsheet. For example if column C has a cell with the word "Not Accepted" in it, that information needs to transfer to a new worksheet.
I'm looking to do this so that it will run through all spreadsheets and grab that specific information and dump it into a new sheet...
I have about 10 open spreadsheets (the name of these changes each time but has a certain format). What I need to do is write some code to cycle through all the open spreadsheets and copy and paste the data into a single master spreadsheet. All these spreadsheets have a single worksheet.
Is there a setting within excel that could cause a user to get a run-time error 1004? I have a workbook with a macro that adds additional sheets to the workbook when a button is clicked. The thing works fine on my machine and 3 or 4 other machines that I have had guys test it out, but I have a user that it will not work for. He is at a location about 3 hours away so I cant see exactly what he is doing, but he says after he clicks the button he gets a run-time error 1004 that says "Unable to set the PrintQuality property of the Page Setup class". I'm thinking that it is a setting within excel?
I am getting a run time error 1004 when i am running this macro. I got this macro to my earlier thread. As i am a beginner in a macro, I am unable to identify the problem. I have attached the workbook for the same
I have a macro, operating in my excel document. It works and does it's function. The only problem is every time this macro is running I get the run time error 1004, Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed. After clicking End in the error window it opens up a newly created sheet that I need. I don't need to save the file in the desktop, I need it just to open up like it does right now.
I have created a macro which sorts 4 columns of data in asceding order numerically. I have assigned this macro to a button so that when the button is clicked, the columns of data are sorted.
Unfortunately when the button is pressed i get a vba run-time error 1004. I havent a clue how to resolve this. I recorded the macro useing the excel recorder function as opposed to typing it out manually.
The code created is given below. If i click debug when the error pops up, the code referring to column f:f is highlighted yellow.
I am using the following code to enable users of a form to made make selections by adding a tick in one of the boxes by clicking on it. It works fine with thesheet unpotected but when I protect the sheet with cells E33:k33 unlocked i get Run Time Error '1004'
Unable to set the Name property of the font class.When I debug, Target.Font.Name = "Marlett" is highlighted.
I am trying to write in VBA sorting button but I am receiving error 1004. I have recorded Macro while selecting 2000rows and sorting it by B then C then A. Columns go to T and some of the columns are empty. However, first 3 lines are completely filled. This is what I have got from recorder(I have adjusted first 2 lines to suit)
I am basically using a combobox in word that opens an excel spreadsheet and pulls information about the people entered in the combobox. The information pulled from excel is then pasted into the original word document.
The problem that I am having is that the macro may be needed to run twice (ex. suppose the user forgot to include an individual in the first run) and on the second run the excel document cannot be opened and it gets stuck on the loop. The macro will only work again if the word document is closed and reopend. I suspect that the excel document is not completly closing on the first runthrough.
I've included my code below. The initialize combobox code is on the bottom. I
Dim WordApp As Word.ApplicationDim xlApp As Excel.Application 'Dim xlWB As Excel.WorkbookPrivate Sub CommandButton1_Click()Bios = ActiveWorkbook.NameNewWBookName = ActiveWindow.CaptionSet WrdDoc = ActiveDocumentlastrow = Range("A1").End(xlDown).RowS
I have a user form with a TextBox (TextBox1), the user enters a filename and presses CommandButton1, this then opens the file. I have set an error trap so that if the file does not exist a MsgBox prompts the user to re-enter. So far so good, however if the error trap operates any further files entered are declared as non-existent even if I know they exist. I thought this would be quite easy but once again VBA bites me back!!
here is my code
stPath = ThisWorkbook.Path stFilename = "Retention" & "" & TextBox1 & ".xls" stFullname = stPath & "" & stFilename 'completes full path of for TextBox1
On Error Goto Errorhandler: 'go to this if file does not exist Workbooks.Open stFullname ActiveWorkbook.RunAutoMacros xlAutoOpen
I'm trying to do a simple loop which creates charts based on an ID number. I recorded a macro and has tried to modify it but am having trouble defining the correct reange when settign the data source. Here is my
I run a large simulation experiment. I have a loop plotting data in excel of a user defined area. Because of the limit of 255 series I have allowed a maximum of 250 simulations (they all need to be plotted). But the length of each simulation is free. I know there is a limit of 32.000 data points in a graph and I have this as a condition too.
If I set the data range to 100 columns and 3000 rows the graph is produced when I plot by columns. (code below)
But if I set the data range to 250 columns and 1000 rows I get the above mentioned error message. Even though I only have 250 series.
After the data is plotted it is the code below that gets the error:
I have been given a macro recorded on a mac and it works fine with Mac Excel 2011. Unfortunately, I need to make it to work on a windows machine, but it comes up with an error message "macro unable to set width property of the window class. Run-time error 1004". When I press debug it takes me to the line .Width = 1456.
Below is the chunk of the code that becomes highlighted when pressing debug.
With ActiveWindow .Width = 1456 .Height = 795 End With
I cannot figure out how to get my error handler to work, or actually, not work. It seems to work fine when there is an error, but the code still gets read even when there was not an error. Basically, I am trying to open a file, which may or may not be there. When it is not there I want a message to pop up informing the user. However, when the file is there and it opens, the error handler still gives the message box. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
Private Sub btnOK_Click() Application. ScreenUpdating = False Dim LCSfile As String LCSfile = frmSelectFile.Listbox1.Value On Error Goto ErrHandler Workbooks.Open Filename:=sPath & sDate & "" & LCSfile & "QUANT.CSV" ErrHandler: MsgBox ("File is not quantitated. Please select another file.") Application.ScreenUpdating = True
I've been using a macro successfully for the last couple of years, but this morning when I went to use it, it decided to fail. I have a workbook which contains various spreadsheets. The macro that has failed performs the following tasks:
1. It copies a list of email addresss from an external workbook to a sheet in the current workbook (still works) 2. It copies the referral sheet I want to send to a new file, and saves it with an appropriate filename to an appropriate folder (still works) 3. The macro then creates an email with a standard subject line, attaches the new worksheet and emails it to each of the addresses as above (broken)
The error message is from Microsoft Visual Basic. "Run-time error '1004': Mail system failure. Check your mail installation."
I'm guessing there is a setting somewhere in Excel that has changed as part of an update.
I've been through a number of the options in the developer menu to remove any obvious restrictions (& reopened excel afterwards), but so far it hasn't resolved the problem.
For what it's worth, here is the macro code.
With Application .EnableEvents = False .ScreenUpdating = False End With Run "PullInSheet1" Dim oldbook As String
In case you're wondering about the pullinsheet code, I'll add it below - but I probably grabbed it from this forum a couple of years ago (like some of the above) & just made some changes.
Code: Sub PullInSheet1() Dim AreaAddress As String '''''' Sheet11.UsedRange.Clear Dim ClRange As String ClRange = "= 'L:ADMINEMPLOY SERVICES" _
There are a couple of things I've wanted to do to improve the macro, but I couldn't justify the need to spend time working it out (since writing spreadsheets isn't really my job). Since it's broken at the moment, I can...
1. I'd like to create a subject line that reflects the name of the person being referred. For some reason though, anything other than text in the cell reference caused an error for me. eg, I tried using concatenate to create my subject line, but it didn't work.
2. I'd like the copied sheet to contain all of the formatting of the original sheet. Presumably there is a paste option that will do this and I just picked the wrong one.
The mailsystem we use is Groupwise 8. I couldn't find any settings in that program that have been changed, or that I could change.
I should change the extension from xls to xlsx in the code since I'm using Excel 2010 (but changing it doesn't fix the problem).
