Office Automation :: Copy Data From One Workbook To Another ?

Sep 3, 2009

I'm trying to copy data from one workbook to another. The program first grab this data that comes in from a data collector and puts it in a excel spread sheet. It then closes its link to excel. I'm trying to grab that data out of the first spreadsheet and put it into a workbook thats set up like a template that will crunch the numbers. I'm currently dim-ing a varible called "grabber" as an Excel.range and setting it equal to the range of my raw data. Can I then say grabber.copy(Destination:=oWS.cells("A1")). I've been beating my head against a wall on this one.


Office Automation :: Copy Multiple Sheets To Another Workbook?

Sep 20, 2011

I have 2 sheets in a workbook that have links on them. I need to copy both sheets into this new workbook at the same time to update the links and not have sheets looking for the original workbook (it just temporary and deleted after the copy). I thought I had it, but I cannot figure out how to deal with the array that is needed (I copied the code from macro builder in excel)..

oExcel.Application.Windows("EP Labor Calculator.xlsm").Activate()
oExcel.Application.Sheets(Array("Rates", "Labor Calc")).Select()
oExcel.Application.Sheets(Array("Labor Calc", "Rates")).Copy(Before:=oExcel.Application.Workbooks("SAP Test.xlsx").Sheets(5))

Office Automation :: Check If Workbook Is Open?

Jul 26, 2010

how I might check to see if a specific Excel Workbook (call it Test.xlsx) is open?I have a routine that calls a subroutine. Sometimes at the time of the call Test.xlsx is open, sometimes not. So when the subroutine runs, I need it to check first to see if Test.xlsx is open. If it isn't then the subroutine should open it and perform the subroutine's purpose operations. If it is open, it should not try to "re-open" it or worse open a copy of it; it should simply perform the subroutine's purpose operations.

Office Automation :: Excel 2003 Workbook Project

Oct 6, 2010

I have a seemingly simple question I can't seem to figure out. I have an old VBA application that connects to a database using OLEDB, grabs data, and populates an excel sheet using Excel.QueryTable after the user clicks a button. I'm trying to port this rather large program to VB.NET. I've created a few projects in my solution, one of which being an ExcelWorkBook. I want this workbook to load each time users launch the program and be blank until they click a button which will populate the data.

Office Automation :: Code Hangs When An Excel File Is Opened To A Excel Workbook Object?

Aug 3, 2009

I use the following code snippet

Dim exlapp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
Dim xlWorkBook_new As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook
Dim strOriginal As String
strOriginal = Server.MapPath(Request.ApplicationPath & "/Attachments/") & "abc.xls"
xlWorkBook_new = exlapp.Workbooks.Open(strOriginal)

The code hangs in the last line. It works fine in the development environment. i deployed in windows server 2000 ,where I get this issue. the browser goes half way and throws the below exception after some time


I have set the identity impersonate to true in web config. This should be mostly an access rights issue.I have even provided access rights for the "everyone " user in the excel file and as well for the interop component. Please post ur valuable comments.

Office Automation :: Excel Automation - Cannot Use Office PIAs

Feb 14, 2009

It appears that when one creates an instance of Excel, using CreateObject, (Late binding), the suggested Excel closing function (with GC.collect etc) does not work. I have tried several suggestions, and the only one that works is process.kill method. Do you see any problem in using this? BTW: the reason we are using late binding is that we cannot use Office PIAs....not sure which version of Office would be installed on the client site. We work with O2003, but the client might still be at 2000 or 2002.

Office Automation :: Excel 2003 Automation With VB 2005 Express?

Apr 20, 2010

Ok basically what I need to do is the following:Read FirstExcelDoc (attached)For every row in that: Retrieve data from sql server db based on info in the Orange columns of FirstExcelDoc Let's say I retrieved data elements A, B, C, D, and E from sql server. Then I need to enter those same data elements A, B, and C in another excel spreadsheet (which has formulas etc) After inputing A, B, and C in that spreadsheet, read a couple of calculated fields and compare those results to data elements D and E retrieved originally from SQL Server DB. Finally, output the results in the Blue columns of the FirstExcelDoc spreadsheet for that row.Loop through and do the same thing for row 2 of the FirstExcelDoc and keep on until you see "END TEST" in the FirstExcelDoc.

I'm looking for a method of doing this efficiently. I have read several articles over the past few days as well as those from Mike R. but just need some direction to get started on this.To start of I'm looking for whether to read the entire FirstExcelDoc spreadsheet or just read the info for first policy number(2nd row) and process it and write out the blue column info for that row and then loop through and come back and read the second policy number (3rd row) etc... Please attach a code snippet for either way of reading the data.

Office Automation :: Excel Automation Causing: Rpc_e_serverfault

Jun 1, 2010

We have a vb program which is run on our server by scheduled task every day. The program opens about 30 excel files, refreshes the data connections, pivot tables and then saves the document in another location.

This may run fine for a couple days but sooner or later the process starts crashing, usually with this error: RPC_E_SERVERFAULT.

My question is, Is it expected that continually opening/closing/refreshing workbooks will inevitably cause the Excel object to crash at some point.

Nos, i've got .NET 4 installed, and i've added the system.tsr and mscorlib.dll files as reference in, say, Excel 2007 (see screenshot).However, when i try to make a thread with anything as basic as "Dim Thread1 As System.Threading.Thread", i get a user-defined type not found error.Indeed, when i use the object browser to see what's in the System file, theres nothing remotely linked to any Threading, and in the mscorlib file, nothing under "Threading" either, just a few Thread related functions, but nothing defining a data type

Office Automation :: .net Automation Excel App Not Closing

Sep 25, 2009

I'm having an issue where my excel.exe process doesn't close until I close my .net application. I'd like to avoid using Process.Kill() if at all possible.


Private Sub WriteRowsToXls(ByVal rows As DataRowCollection, ByVal xlsPath As String, ByVal showStatus As Boolean, Optional ByVal AddTotals As Boolean = True)
Dim xlsApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application


This method references a couple of other methods I use for repeated formatting tasks, I'll include those methods below. (I added the FinalReleaseComObject into the other methods after reading Mike's thread but the issue persists)

Private Sub SetRangeValidation(ByVal rng As Range)
With rng.Validation


Method SetRangeAllBorders does about the same as these other methods but my post is too long to add it. The only other things not shown in these code snippets are a few string variable that are defined in the class, studentWS, studentsWSPW, paymentsWS and paymentsWSPW My App creates an instance of the class, loads some data, runs the method above, and then sets the class to nothing.

Office Automation :: Automating Office Under A Different Username From .net

I found this link that lets you run .net code as a different user - unfortunately it doesn't work with this code. The username recorded is still the user that is logged on the server.Code Removed by moderator. Any ideas how I can make the Office app I'm automating run under a different user to the .net program that is calling it?

Office Automation :: Calling .NET Form From VBA?

Jul 1, 2010

Given vba's fairly lamentable image manipulation abilities, I'm considering going down the VB.NET form route. My hope would be to allow some degree of interactive manipulation and then either pass the image back to vba or save it and load it in vba.I'm happy to investigate the latter part of it at length under my own steam - however, I'm not versed enough in VB.NET forms to know if calling them from (in this case) Access VBA is a practical or doable - and whether it's possible to pass data back and forth.

Office Automation :: Excel .NET Interaction Via DLL?

Dec 7, 2010

I would like to keep part of an Excel workbook open to the user (including some VBA code) while protecting other code. What I hope to accomplish is to rewrite some of my code from Excel VBA in VB.Net and compile it into a DLL which I can then call from Excel VBA. I want end users to be able to modify most of the code in the module, but some of the process should never be touched. Say I have an array in VBA

ArrONE(1 to n, 1 to n)

I would like to pass this through into a DLL and return a new array back to VBA:

ArrTWO(1 to n, 1 to n)

1) What are the best resources for VB.Net?

2) What are some main differences between VBA and VB.Net code

3) I have read that VB.Net doesn�t handle Variant data types, which (as far as I know) is a requirement to perform matrix multiplication in Excel VBA. Any detail on this issue would be of use.

4) VB.Net test environment? I often use msgboxes or simple subs printing to a spreadsheet to test my code in Excel VBA as I go to make sure everything I code is working properly before advancing. What would be .NET equivalents.

5) How to compile VB.Net into a DLL

6) How to call a DLL from Excel VBA

7) What effect will this have on the speed of my procedure?

Office Automation :: Set Filename As Variable ?

Jun 19, 2009

I have written a macro that is pulling information from a "CapComm" file to a template file. This macro filters (based on a variable in the template file) different sheets in CapComm and pastes them in the appropriate places in the template file. I have no problems with that part of the code.

However, each time the macro is run the file is saved as a different filename. In the code there are several movements from one workbook to the other. Macros have been set up to select the appropriate CapComm file. But.... the template file itself will have a different name each time it is run.

For now, we are using the template file, running the macro and saving it as whatever the filename is to be. Then we open the template file again and repeat the process each time. I want to be able to get the templates current name and set that as a variable so we can use the template file, save it as whatever, use it again, save as whatever, etc instead of having to open the blank template each time.

I have tried declaring a variable and using both thisworkbook and activeworkbook, but when the macro moves to the CapComm file, this becomes the activeworkbook/thisworkbook and i end up with errors. Is there any way to get the name of the file at the start of the macro and keep this as until the macro ends or is run again?
