Hi,
I'm trying to open in edit mode, save, and then close an Excel File on SharePoint Using a Macro within another Excel file.

Here is the code I have been able to piece together so far.  It only opens the workbook on the sharepoint, but it opens in read only mode, and it does not save and close.  

Can someone help me fill in what I'm missing?

Sub OpenSaveCloseSharepoint()

Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim xlFile As String
xlFile = "http://sharepoint/sites/MYD_18434/Report%20Library/Bankruptcy/BK%20Timely%20Setup%20Removal%20Daily%20Report/Bk%20Timely%20Setups%20Removals%20Dashboard.xls"

'Open Excel File.
Workbooks.Open xlFile

Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
xlApp.Visible = True

Set wb = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(xlFile, , False)

ActiveWorkbook.Close True

MsgBox wb.Name & " Workbook saved"

End Sub

Open in new window

Thank you for the quick reply.  There is a syntax error with this line:

set wb = Workbooks.Open xlFile

to:
set wb = Workbooks.Open (xlFile)

This only opens and closes the excel file.  How do I get it to open in edit mode, save the excel file to the same location on the sharepoint, and then close the excel file?

That's exactly what it is doing
 

Sub OpenSaveCloseSharepoint()     
     
Dim wb As Workbook     
Dim xlFile As String   
dim wbname as string    
xlFile = "http://sharepoint/sites/MYD_18434/Report%20Library/Bankruptcy/BK%20Timely%20Setup%20Removal%20Daily%20Report/Bk%20Timely%20Setups%20Removals%20Dashboard.xls"     
     
'Open Excel File.     
set wb = Workbooks.Open xlFile   'opens the workbook  
wbname = wb.name    
wb.Close True  'closes the workbook and saves changes.....The true is telling it to savechanges.....   
     
MsgBox wbName & " Workbook saved"     
     
End Sub

You are absolutely right, it worked just like you said it would.   I thought it was just opening and closing and not saving, but there was nothing new to save.  I added this just to test it and it worked.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "x"
