Thread: Saving a File with the name of a month

    Hi guys,

    I have a form called Demo.xls which users use to update a worksheet. There is a combobox at the top of the form where the user would select the month being processed. What I want to do is :

    To have the worksheet associated with the form saved as - let's say the month selected is January- leaving Demo.xls empty.

    I also want that everytime the user opens Demo.xls and adds data for Janauary it is added onto January and does not overwrite what was there before- without asking if to save the file.

    Can this be accomplished? Any help would be appreaciated.

    Thanks

    Carol

    Absolutely it can be accomplished. With a VBA program. Myself or any of the consultants who frequent the board can give you a quote.

    I'm sure there's also plenty of people who frequent this board (and other boards) willing to do it for free.

    I would say until you got to this line:


    I also want that everytime the user opens Demo.xls and adds data for Janauary it is added onto January and does not overwrite what was there before- without asking if to save the file.
    any of us would have been happy to do it for free.

    If you find someone to write this for free, let me know, because I got a whole board full of projects they can do!

    Doesn't sound like a particularly difficult problem to me, but I've no wish to start an argument.
    Just thought that your initial response was unhelpful and dismissive.
    Might just do it myself for the poster if he/she has posted an address.

    Good point. What sounds difficult to me, might be easy for you.

    Let's require everyone to register to post. Having several people posting as anonymous in a thread is very ambiguous.

    It's your board. I guess you can do whatever you like, but I think it's a bad idea.
    I'm sure the board will loose a lot of useful imput.

    You may lose a few anonymous posters asking questions, but there will not be a lack of registered users answering questions.

    Anonymouse....Good one!!

    Had I known that my question would have caused so much problems, I would not have asked a colleague to post the question for me. I do not have the internet at my workstation so I have to impose on people to make posts for me. I did not supply the person with my username, I apoligize and rest assured it will not happen again. I quess I will have to make the posts myself.
