Access: VBA Combining Multiple Excel Files To 1 New Sheet
Oct 10, 2003
I have multiple worksheets spread across multiple Excel files (1 worksheet per file).
All files are stored in the same folder, and all worksheets have the same column headers and structure. I need a block of code that will combine all of these worksheets into a single worksheet in a master Excel file. That is, the code needs to:
1. Open the first Excel file.
2. Copy the first worksheet's contents into the first worksheet of the master file, beginning at the next empty row it finds.
3. Close the Excel file, and move on to the next file.
So in the end, ten worksheets residing on ten different Excel files will be combined into a single worksheet in a single file. No breaks are needed between them, instead, the last row of a worksheet would be followed by the first row of the next one immediately below it. No aggregate functions involved, no sums, nothing like that (which is why I don't think I can use the Consolidate function in Excel).
I have five excel separate excel files containing values covering more than 500,000 rows each. I want to put then in a single excel workbook without tedious work of copy/paste to sheets of this workbook.
I have a folder in my D drive where I used to keep my Text files after downloading it from our support centeral. I want to Import all these Text files in one excel sheet in a way that data of each file got append in excel sheet below previous file data.I am trying to do this through FSO but unable to do the same.
This is a sample of what I am trying to accomplish (file attached). I have information in one worksheet (called MasterList) and a second worksheet called (RecordList). I want to take information from MasterList and RecordList and combine them to produce a report (Results). Assume the user does not have access to MasterList or Results.
The user would enter the UID in RecordList, which then populates information from MasterList. There can be multiple entries for each UID and there is no set number of entries (could be 1, could be 500)
The user enters the UID into RecordList, which populates information from MasterList. The user then adds in the additional information into the fields.
What I want is all the information from the Master List must be reported whether anything exists in RecordList or not. If there is information in the RecordList, display it and on a seperate line for each entry. Each UID then needs to be totalled (which can be done through pivot table later).
I'm using Xl 07 and need to combine two sheets of contact info and have them sorted alphabetically.
Each contact entry takes the follwing form(comma's denote new columns)
55555, Name , John, Smith, Tel: , 555-555-5555 ID , Company, XXX , , Email, xxxxxx
Each sheet has a list of 200 or so entries about 400 rows long. The entries on each sheet are sorted in alphabetical order. the names also alternate alphabetically from sheet to sheet. So when i look at the entries on my final sheet, the 1st will be from sheet1 the second from sheet2 the third from sheet1 and the fourth from sheet2 etc.
I'm not sure whether I should build a new list by pulling alternating entries from each sheet or just copy one list below the other and then try to sort it somehow.
I have an excel sheet with a 'Home' and 'Data' page. I have imported data from an access query into the 'Data' page where I then push a button on the 'Home' page to run a macro on it. I have multiple queries in my database that I would like to be able to switch between in excel to run the macro on. Is this do-able without having to have multiple sheets?
We have a spreadsheet on a server location with macros. Different users will access the spreadsheet from one pc on different shifts. Is there a way to set the area as a Trust Location for all users on the PC or enable the macros in the spreadsheet to execute for all users without having to set up the spreadsheet trust location or macros for each user? I would like to have the spreadsheet accessable to any user on the PC without setting up individual access. The users can change for shift to shift.
I have an Access table which has following fields:
ScanDate Number DataType Type Number Type1 Number Type2 Number BatchNo Number Cases Number Pages Number
Now I have a useform in Excel so that when the user selects the Date from the combobox then it should check for total batch numbers (Count(BatchNo)), total cases (Sum(Cases)),Total Pages(Sum(Pages)) where ScanDate= Date from the combobox group by Queue Number. The Queue Number consist of Type+Type1+Type2.
See attached the Excelsheet where the data should be populated to. WBCount.xls
I have 8 different files all have a set of data in them
each one has a long list of (column a-n) however the number of rows change by date. I need each file copied into the finalfile.xls one after another. in the files that will be merged into the final file the final row i need copied is blank. I have all the copy formulas and everything set, I just need a range to copy that automaticaly takes cell a10 to the first blank a cell from each file and pastes it in the finalfile.xls under the last paste so they dont over write each other.
I need to create a dynamic template for importing data from multiple .txt files to my workbook on a daily basis.
I recorded the macro for importing ONE txt files and starting to deveop it into looping through multiple txt files and sheets but to no avail.
1) Currently I have 4 named ranges
FileLocation = Location of my source file FileName = All the file names of my txt files SheetDestination = The sheet to be paste for each txt file (further explaination below) FileFormat = .txt (for VBA purpose)
2) The macro recorded was in "ActiveSheet", thus I thought of looping through each sheet (put the activate code at the first line) for the codes to run.
3) ColA ColB 1SP.txt 2IND.txt 3US.txt 4 5 6
Column A is my SheetDestination, while Column B is the respective filename for source txt file. My final intended result would be simply macthing sheet 1 against SP, sheet 2 against IND, sheet 3 against US... so on and so forth....
I want to have a primary sheet that refers to two another sheet in the same document.
Basically, the person using the spreadsheet will tell the first sheet what data they're looking for from within the dataset contained in the second sheet and the third.
The first sheet will then have an area which it outputs which data matches the criteria.
Here's some specifics. It's for Pathfinder Deities. The user will input which domains they wish to use and the sheet will output which deities, if any, will be appropriate to select.
The second sheet contains all the Cleric Domains and which Deities are associated with them. The third sheet contains the alignment of each Deity.
If it was not obvious, in the first sheet, the player will indicate which Domains they wish to use for their character as well as the alignment of the deity they wish to use. Once they've indicated what their choices are, the first sheet will show which deities are available given their choices.
I'd prefer to do this without using macros, but if it's easier to use them, then I'll just have to go for it.
The screenshots are too large to post, so I'll just post my project: [URL] ......
I have a system that creates text files once a day in a set folder. I want to have a VBA script that will combine all text files in the folder (C:Daily Folder) into one text file (Full.txt) using a simple cut/paste addition, i.e., the lines from the second file are added after the lines from the first, the lines of the third after those, etc. The order does not matter.
I know there are other threads about combining text files and I'm sure I can figure that out if need be, but the problem is the system creates these files by adding .XXX to the name, with XXX being the file order number. So after 4 days, I have four files named K2500.001, K2500.002, K2500.003, and K2500.004. Windows reads these as being four different file types (.001, .002, .003, and .004). If you click on one of the files, Windows prompts you to associate it with an application. I've tried shell commands such as ren *.* *.txt , but the use of a "." in the file name seems to be a problem. Is there a way to change all "." to "-"? I've tried some PowerShell scripts there that haven't worked. I'd like a VBA solution because I don't know my butt from a hole in the ground when it comes to shell programming and so that it can be added to my VBA script for the Full.txt file.
Maybe the files don't need to be renamed at all--like I said, the end goal is the Full.txt file in C:Daily Folder that contains all the lines from the daily text files.
I would like to be able to open multiple .txt files into one excel document. I had been using a code that opened all the files I wanted into a NEW excel document. I have a template that I use and I want the files to open in sheets following the main template sheet. This is what I have been using:
Sub CombineTextFiles() Dim FilesToOpen Dim x As Integer
And it worked just fine for that purpose but how could I edit this?
how I could use VBA to make a table out of data that would be cool too.
I have a macro that duplicates a excel file into how ever many files I need... so If I need 150 copies of the the file, it will make it 150 times.
However, each file the first tab called "Clients" has information that I want protected so users can't alter it. I can't protect it before I run the duplication because the data is added by a group of people and I need it unprotected until they add the information.
What I am looking for is a macro that I can click and run, allows me to select multiple files, then it will automatically Protect Sheet 1 "Clients" on all the files I select so I don't have to open all 150 files after data is entered and Protect sheet 1 manually.
I know similar questions have been asked before, but I couldnt work out how it is done. Basically I have several xls files with the same name, eg. "test" with an alternating number at the end. 1 - ....
each of these workbooks contain several sheets but all books are the same just with different information on it. each workbook has got a summary sheet in it, i want to import all summary sheets into a single workbook called summary. but each sheet should be imported as in individual sheet.
I am trying to create a summary sheet that automatically gets information from files in a folder.
Lets say I have two folders - Data and Summary. Data folder has many files. Files are added regularly. The files are named in systematic way in following format: [Unit Number][Type][Job Number]
Exampleas of Unit Number: 75845, JBKU238547-6, T-546 Types: ae, hydro, noret, refurb Examples of Job Number: 96789, 96780, 95847
The example of a filename will be like this: T-546refurb96780. Each file has a field called test date and up to 13 rows of information in tabular format.
Now, in my Summary file in folder Summary, I would like to automatically get values from all the files that are in the folder Data. If a file is added in the Data folder, the Summary file should automatically know that. The summary has to be sorted based on the test date.
i am looking for a macro that would import chosen multiple text files and append them all into one worksheet into column B (one textfile row into one cell), with column A displaying the imported filename next to every entry.
Specifically, I have customer sales data from my web site that contains order numbers and sales data. From Google analytics, I have transaction information that also contains the order number. The data element that is common to both is order number. I can't just paste columns from one file into the other because the records listed in rows may not match up.
I don't want to have to copy and paste data from one file to another for each record manually since I have thousands of records. Is there a way to merge the two files together automatically by having Excel "understand" that it should pair the two files together using the order number to create a row that contains data from both files?
I have a spreadsheet with sales information contained in Sheet1. There are a number of columns including the Region column. I would like a bit of code that exports sales information to a number of Excel files dependent upon the region column. In other words the Region column can contain either North, East, South or West. I would like a different Excel file per region and I'd also like the file names to contain the name of the region + the month and year of the previous month ie if i was exporting today then the North Excel file would be called: "North Sales - Jan 2013".
I have .Raw data in 3 different configurations, which can be opened in Excel.
I want to automatically extract relevant data (Columns) from these 3 different types of .Raw data before running analysis using chart using Macros.
Now here is the problem, Data from the .Rawdata needs to be accumulated. That is, I have multiple sheets of excel, which I have to open manually and extract specific data from individual columns onto another sheet to accumulate every data before running analysis.
How to tackle this situation?
1. Able to detect the right type .Raw data for use in Excel. 2. Extract data from many excel onto one main sheet, using Macros.
I have a bunch of workbooks in a folder and I'm basically trying to take the average of the same specific range for each file. I have somewhat of a method for doing this where I separate it into several steps and grab bits of code for each step (there's descriptions on the code). How I can improve or streamline it?
Code: 'STEP 1 'run this first to combine multiple files/workbooks into one file 'Change MyPath to the folder location Sub Merge2MultiSheets()
I have an excel workbook that lists the number of mailboxes on several exchange servers. Because this info is put in manually by several people throughout the day there is a chance for mistakes. I can use remote desktop to get into these servers and check all these but when you have over a hundred (Enterprise Level) of these different mailbox stores to check, it takes a while and just isn't fun. I have a friend who made a vbscript file that can check them all but I don't have that code but now I know that it is possible...well with vbscript anyhow.
is it possible for excel to access a remote computer? and how would this be done? If needed to we can be already remoted into it I just need help with the Syntax of how to then access it via some VBA.
I am trying to use the following formula to pull out data from multiple excel files in a folder called "Certificate".
='D:SSR Sec and Techcertificate[STUDENT 2.xlsx]Student Record'!$B$10
='D:SSR Sec and TechcertificatePath [STUDENT 2.xlsx] File Name Student Record'!$B$10 Sheet name and Cell reference
The formula works without any problem. I want to replicate the formula to extract the same data in multiple excel files. In this case only the second part of the formula needs to change to "STUDENT 3", "STUDENT 4", "STUDENT 5" and so on. I have created a column in excel with those values. I am trying to use the cell contents in the above "formula", but I cannot seem to replace this value in the formula. Needless to mention that I tried to drag the formula, but it does not work. I am attaching the two excel files.
I need to copy information from one excel file and paste it into the same location (A1-A1, B6-B6, etc) in many other files all at once. Essentially I have several thousand files that need to be updated right now. I need to copy and paste both the cell contents and the formatting.
