I have some trouble with VBA macros.
While opening a Excel file (
FILE1.xls) which has a macro (the macro contains a userform with command buttons which i programmed it to use those command buttons as shortcuts to folders, website etc…). There is no problem with this step.
I am trying to open a new Excel file (
FILE2.xls) without macro (for example a file i received by mail) when I open the file it’s invisible. I think it’s a problem coming from my macro.
So I want to run this macro in background and be able to open 6 different Excel files (for example).
I have been searching to solve this problem for a long time.
You can set the UserForms
ShowModal property to
False in its properties window to prevent it blocking.
I have used the below function to open several workbooks in the background.
Set newWorkbook = GetWorkbook(scoreCardLink)
Public Function GetWorkbook(fullFileName As String) As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False Dim result As Workbook Dim sFileName As String On Error Resume Next strFilePath = fullFileName vParts = Split(strFilePath, "/") sFileName = vParts(UBound(vParts)) Set result = Workbooks(sFileName) If (result Is Nothing) Then Application.enableEvents = False Set result = Workbooks.Open(fullFileName, ReadOnly = True, IgnoreReadOnlyRecommend = False) End If Set GetWorkbook = result End Function
