Copying Data From Another Spreadsheet

Mar 2, 2007

From a destination spreadsheet, I need to be able to programmatically prompt the user for the name of a source spreadsheet (e.g., using GetOpenFilename), open the selected file, copy predefined data (i.e., identified with a named range), return to the destination spreadsheet and paste the data in a predefined location.

Does anyone have any code samples to accomplish this task? If so, can it be run with ScreenUpdating set to false so that the user does not see all of the moving around the two spreadsheets.

Copying Data From UserForm To SpreadSheet And Back Again?

Feb 21, 2013

We created a database for our employees who have security items and other things we need to keep track. We created a spreadsheet where data was entered on Sheet2 (Entry Form) and then by clicking various buttons would be thrown over to Sheet1 (MasterList) and put in alphabetical order. Then last week he said lets change it to a User form where i can put all the data, be able to tab through my text boxes and make the whole process of entering information faster and more efficient.. but now hes gone and I'm left with his macros and all this stuff i don't really understand! I have been doing pretty well on my own but im stuck "Search Employee" Here is what i have...

Private Sub SearchEmployeeButton_Click()
LastName.Value = Range("A500").Value
FirstName.Value = Range("B500").Value


use code tags around code. Posting code without them makes your code hard to read and difficult to be copied for testing. Highlight your code and click the # at the top of your post window.

Copying Data From Website And Entering Onto Spreadsheet

May 30, 2014

Working in Windows 8 excel. I am copying data from a website and entering that data onto a spread sheet. There are certain websites where the data does not transfer on the first try. It sometimes takes up to trying 3 times before the data will download onto the spread sheet. Why is that? And is there anything I can do to get it to transfer on the first try?

Copying Filtered Data Columns To New Spreadsheet

Oct 14, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with two tabs (Customer Survey Data) and (Customer Rollup). The data starts on line 5 (headers in rows 1 thru 4) and is found in columns B thru J. In column B I have dates with no blanks. In column C I have customer names - no blanks. In column J is are the customer comments - not all customers made a comment so there are blanks.

I created a macro that autofilters the data to show only those entries within a specific date range (dictated by dates found in L1 and L2 - begin and end dates respectively) by column B (no problem with this). The macro also auto removes all rows where there are no comments (column J = no blanks). This leaves me with only those surveys recieved within a specied date range that have comments.

Here is my problem: the Customer Rollup sheet is the finalized report. I need to copy only the customer names and their comments into the finalized report. The following is the macro I put in which only half works and I have no idea why. It copies the names fine...but then only copies the first comment.

Oh yea...I don't want to copy the WHOLE column...only from the first visible row down to the last. Btw...I put a lot of notes for myself...I capitalized the notes where I think the problem is...Any suggestions on how to fix it or why it just doesnt seem to work like it should?

Select Data From Spreadsheet Column If Condition In 2nd Spreadsheet At Same Time Is Met

Aug 11, 2013

I have two spreadsheets, one gives me the beginning and end of civil twilight as a measure of day vs. night. The spreadsheet has Date/Time in the first column, and the value 45 in the 2nd column when it is night. The second spreadsheet has also 2 columns with date/time and body temperatures of a squirrel. I want to get basic statistics (mean and standard deviation) of the squirrel's nocturnal body temperature, that is for times when it is night (value 45). The tricky part is that Date/Time of both spreadsheets are different. The procedure has to recognize that the date/time of body temperature lies between the beginning and end of the value 45 blocks of the first spreadsheet.

Merge Files? (add Data From One Spreadsheet To The Appropriate Places On Another Spreadsheet)

Feb 6, 2009

Often I need to add data from one spreadsheet to the appropriate places on another spreadsheet. For example:

Sheet A has 10,000 records with these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment.

Sheet B has 5,000 records these fields: id#, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Some of the records in B contain information for the same id#'s as sheet A. I want to add this information together so that a Sheet C will have these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Inserting Cell Data In Another Spreadsheet

Feb 7, 2007

I'd like to insert the value of a cell in Excel worksheet A into the cell of another Excel workbook B. The twist is that the Worksheet A begins as a templated file and is copied into new jobs each time. The destination spreadsheet B location and name stays the same but the source file changes location. So the destination file B can't be looking to be updated. What needs to happen is that once the source spreadsheet A is copied into a new job, whenever the spreadsheet is updated and closed, it needs to "export" the new value into the source file B. Not the other way around as the destination file will not know the location of this new source file. Sorry for the confusing syntax but hope this is clear enough for an answer. Here's an example of the question: How do I automatically, on closing this source workbook A, update cell D24 into file C:MyFilesExcelFormerFile.xls Sheet1 cell B27?

Compare Before Spreadsheet Data To After Spreadsheet

Apr 2, 2014

Wondering if there is an easy way to compare 2 spreadsheets that should have identical data on them? The first spreadsheet (Before) has the output data from 'before' a code fix was applied. The second spreadsheet (After) has the output data from 'after' a code fix was applied. The spreadsheets have 7 columns of data and almost 500 rows.

I've already copied the data from the source datasets provided by my IT folks into Notepad (.txt) files and then used Excel to open them as fixed width spreadsheets. I have 1 workbook with 1 spreadsheet with 'before' data. And, I have 1 workbook with 1 spreadsheet 'after' data. And, I have another workbook that contains both worksheets. So, I'm ready to go whenever I get hints of what to do next. :-)

I need to be able to show my client that we did not impact the data with the code fix that was applied. I want to be able to show my client contacts (business folks) an end result via Excel that confirms that I actually compared the 2 sheets and there were no differences. In other words....I can't just show them a formula with '0' as it end result (even tho that's basically what I'm trying to prove).

Importing Data From Spreadsheet To Spreadsheet

Apr 24, 2006

I need to write a macro that will import data contained in another spreadsheet, but am unsure how to do this. I have several (about 15) spreadsheets that contain data. I need to import key bits of this data into one central spreadsheet that will be used for reporting purposes. I only need 2 cells worth (values) from each source spreadsheet, to be pasted into the destination spreadsheet, into designated cells.

The source spreadsheets are usually closed down and kept on a file server, which my PC has access to. Ideally I want to activate this macro with a control button - i.e. I press the button once and the macro goes off and collects/updates each field with the latest data stored in each of the source spreadsheets.

Retrieve Cell Data From Another Excel File And Paste Into Specified Cells In Current Spreadsheet

Dec 8, 2012

I have a spreadsheet witht the following design:

Column A = Date
Column B = Value 1
Column C = Value 2

I have a folder with excel files named by date (e.g. 081212 = 8th December 12). Within each of those files is Value 1 and Value 2. They are always in the same cell (B6= Value 1, B16= Value 2).

How can i create a macro/script where the Values in Column B and Column C in my spreadsheet are automatically updated where there is a Date in Column A but no values in Column B or C?

In other words, i need the script to read the date in Column A and if Column B and Column C are blank, then it needs to find the corresponding date excel file and copy Value 1 and Value 2 into the cells in my spreadsheet.

Updating Spreadsheet Without Copying Values

Aug 4, 2014

I am trying to copy a set of data (lets say workbook 1) into a new workbook(workbook 2). Both files are saved in the same directory.

Workbook 1 will be continually updated with new row additions and some changes in text in the rows. I want to copy these new changes (from workbook 1) without having to copy and paste the new additions into workbook 2, as it is wasting a lot of my time.

Is there a trick in excel to automatically do this?

Copying Unique Entries To New Spreadsheet

Dec 8, 2008

I'm trying to write a macro to use as an auto-update feature for a spreadsheet.

I currently use Data validation on an input cell to allow the user to select from a list of product types.

I'd like the update to affect this list, so new product types are always available to the user.

However, the list of product types is in another spreadsheet and contains numerous repetitions.

I've managed to get the following code together based on what I've used before and what I've found searching so far, but it seems to have a bug in it as it wont always work. I also need the original copying of the list to be done to either the new spreadsheet of a different page in the original spreadsheet, but every time I try this it causes an object error.

Sub Macro3()
' Macro3 Macro
' Macro recorded 05/12/2008 by Information Technology
    Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
   Sheets("Mask List").Range("f4:f2000").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
        CriteriaRange:=Range("a1:a3"), CopyToRange:=Range("E1:E2000"), Unique:= _

How To Auto Sort A Spreadsheet

Jul 25, 2013

I'm trying to learn how to do auto sort. I Know how to do the custom manual sort but it is taking to long to do my spreadsheet every night. I love to play the greyhounds but to manually sort 18 columns a race with 15 races each night takes a while there has to be a easier way.

here a sample of what I'm trying to do. The columns are in two C-D E-F G-H I-J and so on. The rows here are 7-14 as you see I have to sort some high and some low. Is this possible to do a auto sort for each set of columns

C---- D----------E------F--------G------H--------I------J
1----31.3-------1----31.47----- 1-----87.55------1-------0
2----31.2-------2-----31.69------2---- 51.53------2-----(-1

My intention is to use the INDIRECT formula to put the spreadsheet name in a cell (refer to this topic that I posted earlier today - [URL]. The only problem is to get the formula to automatically add a new spreadsheet into it.

Note: The cell reference O8 is standard for all spreadsheets.

Count The # Of Rows In A Spreadsheet In Which There Is Non-blank Text Data In 2 Separate Columns

Dec 5, 2008

I am trying to count the # of rows in a spreadsheet in which there is non-blank text data in 2 separate columns. For instance, if the spreadsheet looked like the one below (dashes just for formatting purposes):

Mary-------some text--------some more text
John-------<blanks>---------just text here
Sue--------just some here-----<blanks>
Dave-------something--------something else

The total # of rows with something in both the "THIS" and "THAT" columns above would therefore be 2.
