I Want To Open An Excel Template?
I know that if I have a command button in the following:
Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Dim xlBook As Excel.Workbook
Dim xlSheet As Excel.Worksheet
Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Add
Set xlSheet = xlBook.Worksheets(1)
xlSheet.Application.Visible = True
Then I'll have a brand new Excel spreadsheet to transfer over data.
I have two questions.
1.) How can I pull up a template instead of a whole new document?
2.) How can I pull up a certain file instead of a new document?
Thanks for any help!
I appreciate it!
VB6, Open An Existing Excel Template For Editing From Code, Help
I need to open Excel templates from my VB app.
I am using the following code
Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
xlApp.Visible = True
xlApp.Workbooks.Open MyFilename 'MyFilename is always an .xlt file
My problem is that Excel opens a new workbook file based on
the template 'MyFileName' and enumerates it with a 1.
So if the file I want to open is 'test.xlt' - Excel opens a new workbook called 'test1' based on the template.
Is there a way to just open the the template file for editing ?
Please please help
I'm trying to open a new document based on a template that I created from VB6.
My template is in the 'User Templates' folder for MS Word.
The only way I was able to do that is by creating a dummy doc based on my template, opening that doc, then opening AttachedTemplate, closing dummy doc. This kind of works, but there's got to be a shorter way to open the template.
Thanks for your help.
Open Template In VB6
I have a template named BLANK.xlt and what i am hoping to do, is, when i run my app, i would like my template to appear on screen everytime the app is opened, but, at the moment I am struggling on how i can do this.
When the app, and template is opened, the user will (hopefully) be able to add items into the cells of my template and once finished, save the edited template as their new document.
Can anyone please give me advice on how i can achieve this

How To Open A Specific Word Template.
Hi, I'm trying to cut my programming teeth on a little side project at work.
Situation: I want to be able to call up a specific MS Word template from within an Access database. I modified some code that I found on this site and can at least get Word to open a blank document marked "read only" but not the specific document I want.
Here is the code so far:
Private Sub OpenWord()
Dim WordApp As Word.Application
Dim WordTemp As Word.Template
Dim STRTempName As String
STRTempName = "\fltntshr001ITG_CommonIT ServiceeFDNDealer AlertsDealer System Alert.dot"
Set WordApp = New Word.Application
Set WordTemp = WordApp.Documents.Open(STRTempName)
WordApp.Visible = True
Thank you to the original author and thanks greatly for any help in advance to you all.

Open A New Document Read-only Template
I am opening a new document on my own customized template from my vb program and everytime i close it it asks me if i want to save changes to the document and to the template.how do i make the template readonly so that it doesnt ask me if i want to save changes to it?
here's my code:
Dim doc As String
Dim temp As String
temp = App.Path & "Gael.dot"

Open Template If File Doesn't Exist
What I'm doing is I have a macro that opens a template, copies data over, and then does a 'save as' as the person's initials and closes that template.
What I would like to do is something like this:
In a specific folder, if there is an excel spreadsheet with that person's name, open that, copy data and save and close.
If that file does not exist, then use the template.
What I have so far does only the template, it doesn't look for the other excel file. Here is the code I have so far:
Location = "C:Engineer Progress Reports"
togetherness = Location & thefilename
Workbooks.Open ("P:projectdb emplate.xls")
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=togetherness, FileFormat:=xlNormal
Thanks for the help.

Template Open Events And Copying Worksheet Code
Hi all, 2 questions
1) What events are fired when a Template is opened? Is it possible to have some code execute when a template is opened? I'm looking to automatically run a macro every time someone opens a particular template file and figured the best way was through a workbook or worksheet event of some kind. Suggestions?
2) The template has some code in the worksheet that I need to copy to each new worksheet the macro creates. How do I access/copy the existing worksheet code to another worksheet? Or if I were to copy the worksheet itselt does the code come with it?
Using An Excel Template
I'm having an issue using an Excel Template to compile a report with VB. My code opens a read-only excel file, and fills in the cells with the reporting information. It works perfectly -- the first time you run it. However, if the Sub is run a second time, and the user still has the original Excel sheet open, it does not work properly. What happens in this case is that the template will open a second time, but since the first file is still open, the cells on this sheet are changed, and the newly opened template is left blank. Here is my code:
Private Sub cmdSubmit_Click()
Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
xlApp.Visible = True
'Code to Change Cells Here'
I think what I'm missing is a command after I change the cells that "unlinks" the VB app from the excel file.
Run An Excel Template
What I'm trying to do should be so easy but I can't get it to work
I have written a simple VB program before that involved pressing a button and it would delete and copy a file and then run an .exe file.
What I need now is to run an Excel template (.xlt) when a button is pressed. I've tried adapting the previous program but the Shell command doesnt work with an .xlt file.
I could set the path for Excel and get the appropriate temple to run but cannot guarantee Excel will be in the same path on every PC the software runs on

VB && Excel Template Formatting
I have a Excel Template that I am trying to modify with commands like this:
obWorkSheet.Cells(10, "C").Value = txtCustomerName.text

By loosing formatting I mean, the row heights are set back to default, and I can see the grid lines that were turned off in the original template.
How can I preserve my formatting settings????

Excel Template From Access Db Problem...
I am currently writing a package that will print the clients a sheet from Excel, that has information in it that has been dumped from a database. However, that part is relatively easy to do. However, the difficult part, and the part where I am having problems with is that the Excel worksheet is set out as follows:
Row 1: Blank
Row 2: Blank
Row 3: Headers
Row 4: Blank
Rows 5 - 13: Data
Row 14: Blank
Row 15: Blank
Rows 16 - 24: Data
The rows with data in, all contain data that is extracted from an Access db, using a sql query.
My problem is:
How do I have one single query, that populates this Excel template, but puts the data in the pre-formatted places. In other words, I need to be able to jump 2 rows (from row 14 to row 16)?
I would be very grateful if anyone has a solution!

Can't Protect Code In An Excel Template
I know how to protect a VB Project by opening the Properties window, etc, etc.
That works when I am editing the original Excel template file - the .xlt file I created.
However, when I create a file based on the template (File-New, then choose the template), the code is unprotected and viewable.
How can I protect my project so that it's unviewable in the .xlt template file AND any .xls workbook files that are created from it?
Thanks in advance.

Insert Data Into Excel Template From A Recordset.
I have an existing Excel file with several worksheets. Each worksheet is a template to a certain report. I have my records in a database, that I would like is to copy to these excel templates and save it or save as.
I tried QueryExcecute before, and it worked better than loops. Can I still apply that method considering that my records will have to fit to the template that I opened?
I'm searching for threads on how to open an existing excel file and apply changes to it and perform save or save as. If you know one please direct me.
Thanks a lot.
Export Access Data To Excel Template Using ASP
Instead of creating a new excel sheet design, can i use a template which is in *.xlt format and get the data from the access database and insert it into the template ???
And another problem that i face is everytime when i try to get a record from the database, it will convert all the value into the nearest decimal point.
eg the record in my database is 8.00 and it will convert it to 8.
How can i display exactly what ever that is in my database in to the excel sheet ??

Setting Save-As Hint In Excel Template
I've recently put together an excel template for my mum that organises the input of some data. one of the things it does is present a list of dates of mondays, one of which is selected, and that then generates the calendar for that week. once the data are filled in she wants to save the instance of the template as a standard excel document. the default behaviour seems to be that the template name is taken and a number appended. I'd like to use the template name and append the start date of the calendar (the one selected from the popup box) and then have that as the default filename hint in the save-as dialogue box. how do I set this hint?
i can't find this method anywhere, perhaps i'm using the wrong search terms... any suggestions?

Opening An Excel Template That Has Data Tracking
I am fairly new to VB 6 I am creating a user interface that hopefully will provide links to various documents. I have had problems writing the right code to open files from both excel and word. The code runs but the document is not visible. The documents that I want to be available would be edited by the user and then printed off. Can you help. This question is similar to othes posted but due to slight variances I am confused by the coding for procedures/functions I do not need to iput.
Thanks in anticipation of your help
Excel Template Loading VERY Slowly Via Automation
We are having an issue with our servers taking large amounts of time (from 1 minute to 1 HOUR) to open an Excel template via Automation. We have narrowed the issue down to the use of combo boxes within the template. If we remove all 38 combo boxes, the template opens in less than 1 second. As we add combo boxes (VB objects not Form objects) back to the template, the load time grows again.
We have also tried a test where we use a blank workbook and create the combo boxes on the fly via code (OLEObjects.Add) but it takes the same amount of time (1 minute to 1 hour) to do so.
We have 6 servers, 5 of which are Win 2K. The 6th server is Win 2K3. All have Office 2000 with SP3 installed. The 6th server is much faster than the others at loading the template but still takes a minute.
Our developer machines (Windows XP) all open the template instantaneously via Automation:
Set Xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set XlApp = Xl.Application
NOTE: We can open the template directly on the server and it is instantaneous. However, via Automation, it takes the delayed amount of time.
We have confirmed all machines (including developer's machines) have the same version of FM20.DLL on them.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this and how we can resolve the issue? Clearly, we cannot afford for the server to be choking along for this duration of time as the opens the template during our reporting process (Visual Basic 6.0 app, using Excel for output target)
Blocking Template After Exporting From Access 2002 To A Word Template
I am having some difficulty determining the appropriate code for stopping a template from popping up after I close the document to which my Access data has been transferred to. My VB code automatically saves the document, but when I quit Word, my original template pops up. Whatever code I insert into VBE doesn't seem to stop it. I hope someone can help me.... Here's the relevant portion of the code below:
'Creates a Word instance to use for the 8D form. Uses the existing
'Word instance if there is one; otherwise, creates a new instance.
Set objWord = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number = 429 Then
'Word isn't running; creating a Word object.
Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
On Error GoTo Command126_ClickError
strDocsPath = "V:QCProblem Cases" & ""
strSaveName = "BWA CAR No. " & Me![Customer Tracking Number] & ".doc"
strSaveNamePath = strDocsPath & strSaveName
strTemplatePath = "V:QCProblem Cases" & ""
strWordTemplate = strTemplatePath & "8Dform.dot"
'Check for existence of template in template folder,
'and exit if not found
strTestFile = Nz(Dir(strWordTemplate))
If strTestFile = "" Then
MsgBox strWordTemplate & " template not found; can't create 8D form"
Set objDocs = objWord.Documents
.( I have removed the section which relates fields between Access and the template...there's nothing that controls opening and closing of the document)
.Visible = True
Debug.Print "Going to save as " & strSaveName
MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number & "; Description: " & Err.Description
I would appreciate if I receive a reply ASAP (job-related!!)
How To Paste On A Word Template Without Loosing The Formatting Of The Template?
I'm new on VB please help me!
I have to fill some special word template with informations caming from an access DB.
Here the code I'm using now.
Private Sub SearchAndReplaceOnce(monDocWord As Word.Document, strTagARemplacer As String)
Dim maPlage As Variant
Set maPlage = monDocWord.Content
If .found = True Then maPlage.Paste
All this code is working but the method Paste is replacing also the formatting that I have pre-defined on the word template.
How can I do to avoid this problem?
Sending Excel Template Data To An Access Database
I am working with Excel 2002 and I have developed a template for data input and then used the template wizard to dump the data into an access database. I am using “record macro” for users to submit the information. One of the functions I want the macro to record is to save the file. When I do this manually, a pop-up box appears called “template file – save to database” and it says “the contents of this workbook have not been saved as a record in the database. What would you like to do? create a new record; continue without updating “ I want the program to choose “create a new record”. I can do this manually, but when I go to the recorded macro, it only has: Activeworkbook.save
And when I run the macro, it does not transfer the data into my database, so it looks like it defaults to “continue without updating”
I would like to add the code to choose “create a new record” in that pop-up box, but have no coding experience. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
Word Object To Save Template As A Template.
I use a word object to open a template and resave it to template.
The reason I'm opening the template is that I want to run a macro that fills the template with data from bookmarks.
I use this code:
Dim objWordApp As Object
Set objWordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWordApp.Documents.Add Template:=TemplatePath, NewTemplate:=True
objWordApp.ActiveDocument.LoadMe sConn, FunctionId, sFunctionType, SupplierId
objWordApp.ActiveDocument.SaveAs FileName:=WorkPath & FileName
But when opening the new template I get this annoying reference to the old template. The old macros doesn't save in the new template.
When running save as in word on a template the macros are transferred to the new file without referencing to the old macro.
How do you do this in VB?
