So, i have a file zyz.xls

its store in

Q:\Debt\Inputs\2014\201406\Reporting

Can i get some code that looks for the folder from last month, so the process is always ran after month end. So in august, we run July files, so the code would be looking for

Q:\Debt\Inputs\2014\201407\Reporting

Is this possible through a date function?

Thanks

Here's what you need

    
sub test()
    XYear = Year(Date)
    XMonth = Month(Date) - 1
    XMonth2 = Format(XMonth, "00")
    MyDate = XYear & XMonth2
    MsgBox MyDate

Open in new window

End Sub

Note:
Just for reminder and reference only, It should use DateAdd() for previous month and previous year when the Month(Date) is equal 1, and Month(Date)-1 that will be 0 for January for previous month

I try this example date at Range("A1")="23/01/2014", please see the code  based on previous post code and code for Format(DateAdd("m", -1, Range("A1")), "mm") for previous month.

Sub test()
    Dim XYear As String
     Dim Xmonth As String
     Dim Xmonth2 As String
     Dim MyDate As String
     Dim str As String
     Dim tmp As String
     Dim res As String
     Range("A1") = "23/01/2014"
     Range("A1").NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yyyy"
     tmp = DateValue(Range("A1"))
    XYear = Year(tmp)
    Xmonth = Month(tmp) - 1
    Xmonth2 = Format(Xmonth, "00")
    MyDate = XYear & Xmonth2
    Debug.Print "===================="
    Debug.Print MyDate
    
    If Month(tmp) = 0 Then
res = "File-1:Q:\Debt\Inputs\" & Year(Range("A1")) & "\" & Year(Range("A1")) & Format(DateAdd("m", -1, tmp), "mm") & "\Reporting"
    Else
res = "File-2: Q:\Debt\Inputs\" & Format(DateAdd("yyyy", -1, Range("A1")), "yyyy") & "\" & Format(DateAdd("yyyy", -1, Range("A1")), "yyyy") & Format(DateAdd("m", -1, Range("A1")), "mm") & "\Reporting"

    End If
Debug.Print res
    End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Duncan,

Ive beeen using the following

Sub OpenFileCross_Pipeline_Staff()

FileYear = Year(Date)

MonthOffset = 0
If Day(Date) = 1 Then MonthOffset = 1
FileMonth = Month(Date) - MonthOffset
FileDate = Format(Date - 1, "yyyymm")
FilePath = "R:\SPM\Monthly_Inputs\" & FileYear & "\" & FileDate & "\Reporting\PCM_Pipeline_Analysis_Staff_raw.xlsx"

Workbooks.Open (FilePath)

End Sub


Thanks for your add

if so, why others will use DateAdd() on VBA ?
Actually I guess we can use other way to do that without Month() and DateAdd() assist if we want to , Right ?

Anyway, just reminder and note only
