How do I close and automatically not save changes workbook?

I have a spreadsheet which I use over and over again.

Desire:
1. To be able to refresh all data when opening the spreadsheet
2. To be able to close the spreadsheet and never save changes.

How can I do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just add the following codes in the this workbook module of your workbook which will do what you are looking for..

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ThisWorkbook.Close (False)
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
MsgBox "Save not allowed for this workbook"
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll
End Sub

Open in new window

I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but you could always open up the unsaved spreadsheet, "refresh the data" and save the refreshed spreadsheet under a different name preserving the original.
