Hi experts,

I have a Sub that create an excel file and a Sub that add info in the file but it doesn't save the file and if I open a new file, the script takes that new file and write in the active file.

I would like my script to save the file in the same directory where the script strated, give the actual date and time as a name and write in that file even if I open or work in another excel file.

Can you help on this?

Thank you
Sub CreateExcelFile()

	objXL.Visible = True

	objXL.WorkBooks.Add

	'Set column width.

	objXL.Columns(1).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(2).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(3).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(4).ColumnWidth = 35

	

	

	''Set column headers

	objXL.Cells(1, 1).Value = "Computer Name"

	objXL.Cells(1, 2).Value = "Ping Status Code"

	objXL.Cells(1, 3).Value = "Logon Name"

	objXL.Cells(1, 4).Value = "Folder Exists"

	

	''Format text (bold)

	objXL.Range("A1:D1").Select

	objXL.Selection.Font.Bold = True

	objXL.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 1

	objXL.Selection.Interior.Pattern = 1 ''xlSolid

	objXL.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 2

	''Left Align text

	objXL.Columns("B:B").Select

	objXL.Selection.HorizontalAlignment = &hFFFFEFDD '' xlLeft

	objXL.Cells(2, 1).Select

End Sub
 

Sub AddToExcelFile(strName, strCode, strReg, strFolder)

    objXL.Cells(intIndex, 1).Value = strName

    objXL.Cells(intIndex, 2).Value = strCode    

    objXL.Cells(intIndex, 3).Value = strReg

    objXL.Cells(intIndex, 4).Value = strFolder

    intIndex = intIndex + 1

    objXL.Cells(intIndex, 1).Select

End Sub

Here is a modified version of the first Sub which saves the spreadsheet with a name equal to the date and time.

I'm not sure how the two are supposed to work together, but you should be able to make similar changes to the second one.
Sub CreateExcelFile()

	strFile = Date & " " & Time & ".xls"

	strFile = Replace(strFile, "/", "-")

	strFile = Replace(strFile, ":", "-")

	

	Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

	objXL.Visible = True

	Set objWorkbook = objXL.Workbooks.Add()

	Set objWorksheet = objWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
 

	'Set column width.

	objXL.Columns(1).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(2).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(3).ColumnWidth = 20

	objXL.Columns(4).ColumnWidth = 35
 
 

	''Set column headers

	objXL.Cells(1, 1).Value = "Computer Name"

	objXL.Cells(1, 2).Value = "Ping Status Code"

	objXL.Cells(1, 3).Value = "Logon Name"

	objXL.Cells(1, 4).Value = "Folder Exists"
 

	''Format text (bold)

	objXL.Range("A1:D1").Select

	objXL.Selection.Font.Bold = True

	objXL.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 1

	objXL.Selection.Interior.Pattern = 1 ''xlSolid

	objXL.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 2

	''Left Align text

	objXL.Columns("B:B").Select

	objXL.Selection.HorizontalAlignment = &hFFFFEFDD '' xlLeft

	objXL.Cells(2, 1).Select

	objWorkbook.SaveAs(strFile)

End Sub
