Automate Reporting in Excel

Posted on 2011-03-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

The below code is used to automate a 1 sheet report in excel. The code cycles through a list of names, and generates a unique report for each name.
I would like to add a second sheet, however, I'm not sure where to begin. This was written by someone who no longer works with me.

Thank you for your help.

Dim objSheet As Worksheet
Dim wks_array_eng() As Single
Dim wks_array_frf() As Single
Private Sub CommandButton_RunReports_Click()

Application.DisplayAlerts = False

Call fill_wks_array_eng
Call fill_wks_array_frf

Call run_transit(1)

End Sub
Private Sub run_transit(intcol1 As Integer)

    For Each c In ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.Cells
      If c.Column = intcol1 Then

        strReportTransit = Trim(c)
        Set objSheet = hierarchypull
        objSheet.Range("A2").Value = c
        TextBox_transitname.Value = CStr(hierarchypull.Range("A4").Value)

        Call OutputToFile(wks_array_eng, "E")

      End If

Application.DisplayAlerts = True

MsgBox ("Done")


End Sub
Public Sub OutputToFile(wks_array() As Single, rpt_lang As String)

Dim filename As String
Dim temp_num_sheets As Integer
Dim temp_indx As Integer

Select Case rpt_lang
    Case "E"
        filename = "Report Jan31,2011 - " & Trim(TextBox_transitname.Value) & " District" & " .xls"
End Select


temp_num_sheets = Worksheets.Count

For temp_indx = 1 To temp_num_sheets
    ActiveSheet.Range("A1:CA2000").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
    ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="asdf", DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
Next temp_indx

ActiveWorkbook.Colors(38) = RGB(59, 90, 111)
ActiveWorkbook.Colors(39) = RGB(234, 234, 234)


'ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="asdf", DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "C:\temp\" & filename
Workbooks(filename).Close SaveChanges:=False
End Sub

Private Sub TextBox_transitname_Change()

End Sub

Public Sub fill_wks_array_eng()

Dim start_wks_indx As Integer
Dim end_wks_indx As Integer
Dim ArraySize As Integer
Dim counter As Integer
Dim array_indx As Integer

start_wks_indx = eng_reports.Index + 1
end_wks_indx = frf_reports.Index - 1

ArraySize = end_wks_indx - start_wks_indx

ReDim wks_array_eng(ArraySize)

array_indx = 0

For counter = start_wks_indx To end_wks_indx
    wks_array_eng(array_indx) = counter
    array_indx = array_indx + 1

End Sub
Public Sub fill_wks_array_frf()

Dim start_wks_indx As Integer
Dim end_wks_indx As Integer
Dim ArraySize As Integer
Dim counter As Integer
Dim array_indx As Integer

start_wks_indx = frf_reports.Index + 1
end_wks_indx = data.Index - 1

ArraySize = end_wks_indx - start_wks_indx

ReDim wks_array_frf(ArraySize)

array_indx = 0

For counter = start_wks_indx To end_wks_indx
    wks_array_frf(array_indx) = counter
    array_indx = array_indx + 1

End Sub

To add another worksheet you can use the following line:


I suggest to add it just befor the first "End Sub" (@ line 15) to avoid clashign with the rest of the macro.
