Automatically Open, Copy, And Close Multiple Workbooks

Jul 26, 2006

I have 77 excel workbooks that are created each week, they are all in the same directory. I have to open each one and copy the data into a single workbook. The file names change slightly each week.

example: DIST_91124_GROWTH_PRODUCT XXX _07072006.xls The 07072006 is the week ending date and will change. Each of the 77 files has a different DIST_number.

Is there a way to automate this process, it takes me about 4 hours to do it manually.

Close All Open Workbooks Except......

Feb 25, 2008

I made an Excel based program that uses multiple workbooks with two main workbooks (“Master List” and “Products”) that all the others pull information from. I run into a problem when a user clicks the close X in the upper right hand corner and the entire application closes. I found some code that will let me close all the workbooks but one (the code is put in the “Products” workbook in the BeforeClose event).

For Each wb In Workbooks
If Not wb Is ThisWorkbook Then
wb.Close SaveChanges:=True
End If
Next wb

Is there a way to modify the code so it will close all the workbooks but the two main ones if someone clicks the close X button in the upper right hand corner?

Open Multiple Workbooks & Copy Sheets

Jul 17, 2007

I have a created a main workbook with a macro that opens workbooks on a particular sheet from a list of workbook paths and filenames in the main workbook. The macro are suppose to copy the sheet and paste it into a sheet with a new name that I have defined from the list in the main workbook. I can get the macro to open the workbooks and close them. But I can't get the macro to copy the sheet into the main workbook.

I have attached the code and the workbook. I used slet_ark to delete previous sheet and hentark and henttekstfil to open the different workbooks.

The code I use are:

Public Sub Slet_ark()
Dim ark() As Variant
Dim Counter As Long
Dim FirstSheet As Long
Dim LastSheet As Long

Excel 2010 :: Automatically Copy Multiple Workbooks Into One

May 2, 2012

I am attempting my first working macro. I am currently using Excel 2010 on Windows XP. Here is what I am attempting: I need a very user friendly macro that will allow my staff to click on a button to run the macro. Each month they receive multiple workbooks from one of our clients. The workbooks are always stored in the same location. I need the macro to go in and pick up the first worksheet of each workbook and copy it into a new workbook. Each original sheet1 of each workbook should have its own sheet in the new workbook, i.e. if there are 5 original workbooks then the macro should create one workbook with 5 sheets. Here is the programming I have been using:

Sub GetSheets()
Path = "C:Documents and Settingse462863My Documents
Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xls")
Do While Filename ""
Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
Next Sheet
Filename = Dir()
End Sub

This works, but I am running into a few problems. I need to create a "run" button but I'm unsure how to build it. Also, when I run this macro there are tons of extra sheets and the worksheets tend to duplicate. I am wondering if the "loop" is picking up more than I need.

Dynamic Open/Close Of Workbooks Crashes

Dec 15, 2009

I'm working on developing a stock option trading system in Excel using a live data feed and VBA. It tends to crash after running flawlessly for a half hour to 2 hours. It seems to crash when loading a support workbook, so I was hoping you could take a peek at my code and see if there's a problem with the way I'm dynamically opening/closing workbooks.

In order to cope with limitations in the amount of live data that I'm accessing (through DDE with Reuters Station), I've split up the data I need into about 600 workbooks, which open when they're needed or close when they're not (through VBA). At any given time, about 35-40 of these workbooks are open.

The main workbook that uses all this live data and support workbooks is set to have the application recalculate every 5 seconds (automatic recalc crashes the program almost immediately). After that refresh, it calls other subroutines, including opening/closing these support workbooks:

VBA To Open External Workbooks With Variable Filenames And Close

Nov 29, 2013

I'm trying to create a VBA macro which will open external workbooks in a specific folder. thes workbooks will have filenames which are identical to the value in cell B1 of my active workbook. Once open, I would use indirect to pull certain results from that external workbook and then close it. I have a separate macro already which runs through the list. I found a few examples online but they don't seem to work.

Open Workbook / Copy / Close Without Offer To Save?

Mar 12, 2014

I've got a kind of "menu" sheet that will pull up various reports from Excel spreadsheets. Rather than having the user work with the live data, the menu opens the file and saves it as a copy, closing the original. This is working fine.

The tweak I want to add is, since the user is looking at a copy rather than the live data, I don't want them to save when closing. Is it possible to programatically add a bit of code to the new copy to handle this?

Here's a sample of one of the menu button's code:


Private Sub CommandButton18_Click()
Dim wb As Workbook
Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:="J:Z PII OvensRack Repair TrackingRack Repair List.xlsx")
With wb.Worksheets("Sheet1")
.Unprotect Password:="pass"
End With

Copy Ranges Between Open Workbooks

May 14, 2008

I have several ranges (i.e. c11:c22, and d11:d22, etc) in an excel spreadsheet that, when the command button is selected, will copy these values into another already established workbook ("aggregator.xls").

Thus, the command button would have to pick each of these ranges and copy them into the aggregator workbook, (i.e. c11:c22 in the first workbook would be copied into b3:b14 in the aggregator workbook; d11:d22 would be copied into b18:b29 in the aggregator workbook, etc.)

In addition, I need it set up so that when the command button is selected to copy this data, that it will look in the aggregator workbook for the next available column for the section that the data will be copied to so that it doesn't write over the previous data.

Active Multiple Open Workbooks

Jul 18, 2007

I want to use a for command, but not include all the i's between two numbers. The reason is I want it to activate open workbooks that have similar names, like '110000 2007.xls', '120000 2007.xls', '130000 2007.xls', '150000 2007.xls' and so on.

I want my code to look something like this:

For i = 11, 12, 13, 15
Windows(10 * i & "000 2007.xls").Activate
'do stuff
Next i

Is there a way I can do this? Or use another command?

Macro To Copy Data From Open Workbooks

Feb 12, 2009

I'm just starting out on my journey into VBA and this forum has been a valuable resource for picking up hints and tricks

I've decided to cut some corners and ask for help for the final piece of my current jigsaw - effectively this comes in two bits.

Part one:

I want to copy a sheet from two open workbooks and paste them into my active wookbook. Both source workbooks only have one sheet. I want a dialogue box to select the desired workbook, select and copy all data and then paste to a specified sheet (replacing the current data) in the destination workbook. I then want to select the other source workbook from the dialogue box and copy all data to a separate sheet in the destination workbook. I would like the dialogue box to have two options - Ok to select, copy and paste data, Cancel to end the macro.

Part two:

I want to copy a sheet from my source workbook and paste it as a separate sheet in a new workbook (a one page workbook would be ideal). I then want to save the new workbook in a specified location as "Data - Date" in the format 2009 02 12.

Open Files & Copy Data Between Workbooks

Sep 15, 2007

Simply trying to copy data from one worksheet to another. The source sheet is an excel file exported from an Access table. I recorded the macro using the recorder in Excel because I am no programmer, but when I try to run the code, I get this error:

"Code execution has been interrupted" ...and the Range I tried to select in the source file is highlighted by the Editor.

Is the source file protected somehow?

Open Multiple Workbooks With Variable Names

Aug 17, 2007

I have data spanning many files which are named with the date on which they were created (so there are 31 files for August).
For example:
PL080107, PL080207, PL080307, PL080407...)

I'm trying to compile all of my data into one workbook, and have the macro to append each file to a list. Now I need the macro to either OPEN each file, or ACTIVATE each file so that the rest of the Macro can grab the necessary data.

I say Open or Activate, because I can MANUALLY Open a full month's worth of files if it's easier code. If not, I would like it to open and close each workbook on its own.

I have over 7 month's worth, so opening 31 files 7 times is better than opening over 200 files individually!

Macro To Copy Data From Two Workbook To Another Where All Workbooks Are Open

Jun 7, 2014

I have 3 workbooks open. 1 is my working file and I name it as "Final[date].xlsm". The other 2 files are my source files which are also open are named as source1.xlsx and source2.xlsx. Both the source files has only one tab/sheet as "Sheet1". My objective is to bring the contents of the source file to my working file in 2 different sheets. all the contents in Sheet1 of "Source1.xlsx" should be paste.values only to the "Final[date].xlsm" with a sheet name "BankDetails". This will enable the user also to replace the old data in "BankDetails" tab. The "source2.xlsx" sheet1 has a different situation. I need to copy only the cells with values, not the entire cells, because it has to be pasted (values only) to range C2:L. I have formulas in the other columns before C and after L.

Take note that my working file name is changing every based on the date while my source file has always same file name.

Macro To Open Workbooks Of Multiple Specific Names?

May 2, 2014

I currently have a piece of code that opens all of the files in a folder that are called "*agent*", opens them and copies information. Now, these files come with numbers at the beginning which, are always the same. I only want to open certain files that begin with, for example, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805 and 806. How would I write this into my code? As you can see from the below code, it now looks for the files that all have "agent" in the name, but this is opening files that have that name but are not the right ones. Here is my current macro...

[Code] ....

I hope this isnt as simple as putting "MyFile = Dir(MyFolder & "*801*", "*802*")" etc.

Multiple Instances (VBA To Open 3 Workbooks In Their Own Session/instance)

Feb 2, 2010

I'd like to use VBA to open 3 workbooks in their own session/instance/etc of Excel 2007. Ideally, there will be one main workbook, that upon opening will subsequently open the other 3 workbooks.

Also, when I open that first main workbook, I will obviously have to enable macros to get any code to run. Is there a way to carry this enabling of macros over to the other sessions to avoid having to enable macros in all 3 other workbooks? (Changing my security settings isn't an option)

Automatically Transfer Data From Multiple Workbooks Into Master Workbook

May 28, 2014

I am trying to automatically transfer data from nonadjacent cells (C1, B5,B10,B16,B22,B28) from multiple workbooks in a masterworkbook folder from A2:F2. I am a novice at VBA. I am not able to copy as Range("C1,B5,B10,B16,B22,B28") and the way it currently is coded only the last copied range (B28) is pasted to the master workbook. The data pastes to A2 in the master workbook instead of F2 where I want it. I need copying the cells from the workbooks into row 2 in the master bookbook. Here is what I currently have:

Sub LoopThroughDirectory()
Dim MyFile As String
Dim erow
MyFile = Dir("C:ToolFolderWorkObjectives")

Copy From Multiple Workbooks

Nov 7, 2006

I am attempting to move data between two spreadsheets and have written a macro that initially copies one cell E2 then pastes it correctly into another workbook. I now need to modify the macro to include additional ranges. E2, E3, G2, H2, N1 to U3. I am stuck to the best method of selecting these ranges and then pasting them as I cannot get it to work. I have included a copy of the code below.

Copy From Multiple Workbooks To Another Workbook?

Nov 19, 2012

I have a database from which I extract 5 different excel files. For arguments sake, they are called File 1, File 2 etc. Each of these workbooks will have a sheet called 'Raw Data'. These will all be save in the one directory, C:Data, for example.

I am after a macro that can copy all the data from each of the workbooks, on the sheets called 'Raw Data, however the data in each of the workbooks will vary in length and width.

The workbook which I want them copied to is called "Template" and I would like the copied data onto separate sheets in this file. If possible I would like them copied to already named sheets, for example in the "Template" file, sheets may be called "Raw Data1", "Raw Data2" etc.
