Examples

I have add all the code in a txt file on my site so it is easy to copy it in a module of your workbook.

1. Ctrl+A to select all the code

2. Ctrl+C to copy

3. Press the Back button in your browser to go back to this page

Open Excel or make Excel the active program

1. Alt+F11 to open the VBA Editor

2. Insert>Module from the Menu bar

3. Ctrl+V to Paste the Code

4. Alt+Q to go back to Excel

When you use the shortcut Alt+F8 now you can see and run the macros.

Note : I use the .zip extension in my examples but you can also use

Note: I use the .zip extension in my examples but you can also use the extension .7z If you use the extension .7z you will see that the file size is smaller.

Four examples above you can test without changing the code. Only if you want to test the macro:

B_Zip_Fixed_Folder_And_SubFolders You must change the string of FolderName to the folder you want to zip in this code line FolderName = "C:\Users\Ron\Desktop\TestFolder"

Important: Read the comments above and in the code good and after you test the code examples you can try the commented examples in the first macro Zip_Folder_And_SubFolders_Browse

To test it replace :

ShellStr = PathZipProgram & "7z.exe a -r" _

& " " & Chr(34) & NameZipFile & Chr(34) _

& " " & Chr(34) & FolderName & "*.*" & Chr(34)

With one of the strings below :

'Zip the txt files in the folder and subfolders, use "*.xl*" for all excel files ShellStr = PathZipProgram & "7z.exe a -r" _

& " " & Chr(34) & NameZipFile & Chr(34) _

& " " & Chr(34) & FolderName & "*.txt" & Chr(34)

'Zip all files in the folder and subfolders with a name that start with Week ShellStr = PathZipProgram & "7z.exe a -r" _

& " " & Chr(34) & NameZipFile & Chr(34) _

& " " & Chr(34) & FolderName & "ron.xlsx" & Chr(34)

'Add -ppassword -mhe of you want to add a password to the zip file(only 7z files) ShellStr = PathZipProgram & "7z.exe a -r -ppassword -mhe" _
