Adjust Macro - Imports Data From Several Input Files And Rearranges It In A Master File?
Apr 25, 2014
I have the following macro that imports data from several input files and rearranges it in a master file.I want to change it so that I can use it in each of the input files. Therefore, it should look in the input file for Spreadsheet "XYZ" and rearrange it in Spreadsheet "Data".
I have approx 11 files in one folder and one master file with same format. 11 files are split user wise and user inuputting the remarks against the invoice in coloum Y and Z in their respective files. I want macro/forumul to collect all the remarks coloum from all users to master files against the respective invoice no.
I have many folders (around 500) - each of them contains a excel file (the excel files have all the same name), ideally I would like to be able to run a macro from a master excel file that would allow me to add a sheet which I would create in the master excel file and add it to all of the excel files that are in the folders. So far I have used the code from the link: [URL]
VB: Sub CopyWorkbook() Dim sh As Worksheet, wb As workbook Set wb = workbooks("1.xlsx")
but when I change it from 2.xlsx to 1.xslx in the code it works just fine, copying the sheets from the file to itself.
My project requires working with 3 different files, in my example here: Delivery Status, Warehouse, and Clients. Delivery Status is the master file where the information is gathered at first. Then when the product arrives, from the column "AI" I choose the Destination which it could be a warehouse or client. So far the code that I have can paste the information in different sheets within the File Warehouse, but can not make the difference between the File warehouse and the file Clients.
In the Delivery Status file I can choose from the Column AI whether the destination is a warehouse or a client and I need Excel to paste the information in the proper file. Have in mind that I have a lot of sheets in both files. I am attaching an example files with the code.
I'm a relatively competent VBA user to a macro recorder and basic editing of custom code level but fall short with writing custom code and don't have much used or proven code I can copy from.
Problem: I'd like to automate a process whereby consolidating certain information within many data files (possibly up to 500) into a single tab within a master file.
At the moment there are only a few data files which are manually consolidated by way of manual links but going forward it will increase significantly, hence the need to automate.
I need to consolidate the following 5 cells from each data file A1, A2, A5, A7, A8 (vertical) into a single row within the master file across 5 columns (horizontal), i.e. each data file will populate 1 row in the master file, one below the other. If there are 500 data files there will be 500 rows of data in the master file.
The data files will be saved in a central location on our server and the master file will sit outside this folder, possibly in a subfolder.
Something which would be handy is a link in the master file to each data file, i.e. if I click on a data row in the master file it would jump to the source data file.
Need a way to update a single master file. What happens right now is that the cost manager sends out one file to a lot of different project heads and then on having them return back to him he basically has to individually add in all the data. What i am trying to do is that he somehow carries on sending out the data as there are a lottt of projects and then on returning them they automatically update.
I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?
I have six files that are formatted the same(fld1-1.xlsx, fld1-2.xlsx...). Each file contains an I.D. number (random 25 digit number) in column A and a note (1-9) in column B. The only thing that changes between files is the note column. I want to pull from these six files into a master file. When all six files are combined the note column in the master file is complete, there are no duplicates. Because a blank vlookup returns a zero, could I use an IF formula. Something like IF VLOOKUP FROM data01(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data02. IF VLOOKUP FROM data02(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data03.
How do I write a vb macro that copies everything from multiple files, including sheets within files, and puts them into one master file. Here's what I have so far. I used a script from gnaga that worked great but it didn't copy seperate sheets. If you can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
Sub MergeSheets() Dim SrcBook As Workbook Dim fso As Object, f As Object, ff As Object, f1 As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set f = fso.Getfolder("C:Temp") Set ff = f.Files
I am trying to make my macro more dynamic for a spreadsheet I am working on. I have this code which splits out worksheets (using the specific names of the worksheets-not dynamic) from a main workbook into template workbooks (which are basically just an empty workbook because I didn't know how else to do it) and then saves them using the paths below. I would like to make this more dynamic by splitting the different worksheets into new workbooks based on a key column in the hierarchy worksheet.
Basically I have a list of accounts in column B with the file name they should be exported to in column A. There are about 30 accounts being split into 6 different region files. Also note that the same account might be listed multiple times in column A (needed to add multiple numbers for other lookup formulas in the worksheets) but that account worksheet will still only be going to one of the six region files and not to multiple regions. After these are copied to an individual file I would like to save it to a location on my computer. All files will go to this location.
VB: Sub Create_Subfiles()
Dim FDMName As String Dim FBName As String Dim DIYName As String Dim WMName As String
I have a macro that transfers (copy/paste) information from one master file to several other individual files. The macro works, but I would like to enhance it by have it spit out errors in the process as follows: if cell A42 on file VP1.xls is not equal to Cell C35 on file Masterfile.xls then make cell E2 ERROR and fomat E2 bold-red, otherwise do nothing. The macro should continue regardless, I just want it to spot errors. I think this is pretty simple is just a matter of inserting an IF formula in the macro which is something i don't know how to do yet.
Worksheet 2 is the master file and contains various information. Worksheet 1 is the input sheet. If Column A sheet 1 matches Column A sheet 2, copy data from Column B sheet 2 and input into Column B sheet 1.
Set CopyRng = Wkb.worksheet1.Range(Cells(RowofCopyworksheet, 1), Cells(Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row, Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column))
I am trying to copy the first sheet in each file in the designated folder and paste it into a master worksheet.
Below is the code.
'Description: Combines all files in a specific folder to Format File for Upload.xls Sub MergeMultipleFiles() Dim path As String, ThisWB As String, lngFilecounter As Long Dim wbDest As Workbook, shtDest As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet Dim filename As String, Wkb As Workbook Dim CopyRng As Range, Dest As Range Dim RowofCopySheet As Integer
I have csv files auto generated (with date stamp in name) and saved in a specific folder everyday. I need to find a macro that will copy the row(s) every day and add to the next empty row in the master excel file. Some days the csv file may have a single row of data and on some other days it may have multiple rows of data to copy and paste.
I am a lacrosse coach and am keeping track of key stats that our team values that cannot be found in the box score (ex: 'Secondary Assists'). To do this we have created a group of rather simple Excel spreadsheets to keep track of these. We have one master file will all the total data from the season and 10 or so secondary files for each game that we played. To this point, I have been adding the data from the different game files to the master file manually and it is very time consuming.
My question, is it possible to copy a row of data from one of the secondary files and have excel add that data to the existing data in the master file?
I am currently working on a performance document. I am working on the principle of having a master template which people can then access, Save As, and use to monitor performance around KPI's.
The issue I am having is around the name of the document changing when it is saved as, as all records have to retained. The macro I am struggling with is designed to unlock the workbook & worksheet, copy the worksheet specified into a new workbook and then return to the workbook the macro is held within and lock it back up. However, when the name changes it just locks the new workbook rather that the version I am asking it to.
I have created a workbook which both imports data from an access database and exports data to same. Some of the data I need to access is dependent on parameters which the user will change in excel e.g. I need to extract PeriodID (ID for a month end date) based on a date in a speified cell in excel.
MS Query is a very handy way to achieve this as the wizards automate almost everything. However, this workbook will be shared on a common drive on a server (as will the database). Initial testing suggests that the connection and queries I'm making on my machine do not work on other people's machines.
What is the best way to achieve the queries in excel which query data from an Access Database, but will work on all machines accessing the sheet from a shared drive? Is there any way I can avoid writing complex VBA code for this? I have an awful lot of specific queries like the one I mentioned above to perform.
How to get updated data from connected 3 XL workbooks.(files)
1= ODBC connection ( This brings data from a Basis Query) it will updated 1 or max 2 times a day.
2= Manuel input ( It will update after inserting new data, many times a day) Password protected
3= This One is my master file which brings data in 2 different sheets from above mentioned files. Password protected
My problem is started when i want to see latest updates from file 1 & 2 in my Master file then i have to re-open my Master file, Is it any option which fulfill my requirement that i will keep my main file update just by clicking <save> & I will not re-open file at all times ?
I can't have a shared file. & my all these 3 files are in the same folder.
simple Formula used to bring results are =[Book1]Sheet1!$A1
I am trying to create a master file, with a macro built in, that will allow multiple users to use it at once. The macro is to open a dilouge(sp sorry) box showing the contents of a specific folder, allow the user to selct one of the sheets, then copy and paste the set details from the hidden tab on this sheet (All sheets will be the same barring title), append the details to the master list in the first empty row.
I've got this far thus Sub Macro1() ' ' Macro1 Macro ' ' ' Modify this folder path to point to the files you want to use. FolderPath = "My Folder name here"
' Set the current directory to the the folder path. ChDrive FolderPath
So I can copy the row, but I can't get the first part to open .
I am trying to automate in VBA the process of importing of txt file to Excel range. The columns widths are not static. So I can't use recoded code of Text to Column wizard process as columns alignment arguments, (ie FieldInfo:= Array(Array(0, 1) would need to be changed daily. I have also tried to import the text in one column and then apply a code of TextToColumns to automatically split the text by multiple columns. But some of the text would be moved to the left under wrong column titles. I think this is because the text is not tab or comma delimited. It's just aligned using multiple spaces.
Is it possible to write a code to split the text by columns based on alignment of 2 first rows. For example, import rows 6 and 7 from the text in one column, then apply texttocolumn method like this:
I've attached 2 test files, one is the database master file containing the projects (each row represents a project, unique reference number in column A) and the other is the blank template file i'm hoping to export data into and then save down with the naming convention "column A_column B.xlsx"
Kept the test files simple but would need to modify any code to apply to much larger database consisting of many more fields etc.
