Good morning,

I have a macro, "hideone", in excel 2010 that is calling another macro in a word 2010 template document, "wordhideone". My problem is I want to save the changes that "wordhideone" is doing without having a save as box come up. Kinda like just hitting the save icon. Please let me know if you need additional information.

Sub hideone()
    Dim wdApp As Object, newDoc As Object
    Dim strFile As String
    Dim myDoc As String
    
    myDoc = "Risk Audit Report Template"

    strFile = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & myDoc & ".docm"

    '~~> Establish an Word application object
    On Error Resume Next
    Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")

    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
        Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    End If
    Err.Clear
    On Error GoTo 0

    wdApp.Visible = False

    Set newDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add(strFile)

    Call wdApp.Run("hideone")
         
End Sub

Open in new window


Sub wordhideone()
' hideone Macro
'
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("one").Range.Font.Hidden = True
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("one_01").Range.Font.Hidden = True

      
End Sub

Open in new window


Thank you for your help and I hope you are having a good day.

Rgonzo1971,

Just tried your recommendation. The word document is still showing and the save as box still opens up. Thank you for your suggestion, if you have any additional thought I'd very much like to read them.

Thank you :).

Hi,

pls use Open instead of Add

    Set newDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open(strFile)

    Call wdApp.Run("hideone")
    newDoc.Save
    newDoc.Close False

Open in new window

Regards

Rgonzo,

That is perfect. This solves my issue. Below is the new codes being used for anyone who comes across this post.

in excel:
Sub hideone1()
    Dim wordApp As Object, newDoc As Object
    Dim strFile As String
    Dim myDoc As String
    
   
    myDoc = "Risk Audit Report Template"

    strFile = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & myDoc & ".docm"
    
     '~> Establish an Word application object
    On Error Resume Next
    Set wdApp = GetObject("Word.Application")

    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
        Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    End If
    Err.Clear
    On Error GoTo 0

   'Make Risk Audit Report Template.docm. no visible, so it runs in back ground.
   wdApp.Visible = False
   'Final code to open Risk Audit Report Template.docm in the back ground.
   Set newDoc = wdApp.Documents.Open(strFile)
   'runs macro
   Call wdApp.Run("hideone")
   'save Risk Audit Report Template.docm.
   newDoc.Save
   'closes Risk Audit Report Template.docm.
   newDoc.Close False
        
End Sub

Open in new window


in word:
Sub hideone()
'
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("one").Range.Font.Hidden = True
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("one_01").Range.Font.Hidden = True

End Sub

Open in new window
