Is it a regular occurrence for you to have many Excel workbooks at the same time due to multitasking? We can close all workbooks and save changes for all of them using Excel Macros!
Make sure your Excel has the Developer Tab enabled following this tutorial.
I explain how you can do this below step by step!
What does it do?
Close all workbooks and save changes for all of them
Copy Source Code:
Sub CloseAllWorkbooksAndSaveChanges() Dim workbook As Workbook 'Loop through all workbooks and close them For Each workbook In Workbooks workbook.Close SaveChanges:=True Next workbook End Sub
