I am trying to utilize R Studio to execute VBA code within an excel template. The issue I am facing is that the VBA code leverages an custom excel add-in(XLAM file). Currently, whenever I opened an excel document, the xlam file will be opened behind the document so that excel can leverage the addin. Whenever I use COM create, R does not inherently open the XLAM file so a portion of my VBA code will not work. Is there a way for R to reference an XLAM file when using COMCreate for excel application?
Open a specific workbook in Excel:
xlApp <- COMCreate("Excel.Application")
xlWbk <- xlApp$Workbooks()$Open(Excel_One_Pathway)
this line of code might be necessary if you want to see your spreadsheet:
xlApp[['Visible']] <- TRUE
Run the macro called "MyMacro":
Close the workbook and quit the app:
