Hi Expert's Excel 2007

I have a macro which does a simple copy cut and paste special. ..works great...however..I need a macro to prompt the user to save the file first before the copy and paste macro runs. ..just in case they accenditally press the copy and paste macro button by error and delete all the formula. ..

both macros to run off one button. ...ill simply call the other macro..

You could override "Workbook_BeforeSave" as shown here http://datapigtechnologies.com/blog/index.php/forcing-users-to-save-as-xlsm/ and then just save your workbook from within VBA before calling your macro...

HI,

you coud try this

Sub MacroSaveBefore()
Result = MsgBox("Do you want to save your workbook before" & vbCrLf & "replacing the formulas with values?", vbYesNo, "Paste values")
If Result = vbYes Then
    ActiveWorkbook.Save
End If
'Rest of your code

End Sub

Open in new window


EDIT  a bit more sophisticated
Sub MacroSaveBefore()
Result = MsgBox("Do you want to save your workbook before" & vbCrLf & "replacing the formulas with values?", vbYesNoCancel, "Paste values")
If Result = vbYes Then
    ActiveWorkbook.Save
ElseIf Result = vbCancel Then
    MsgBox "Operation cancelled", vbOKOnly, "Stop"
    Exit Sub
End If
'Rest of your code

End Sub

Open in new window

Regards
