Code To Run When Workbook Is Opened And Copy Values From Other Workbooks In It?
Feb 19, 2014
I want the code to run when we open excel workbook "TEST" and it should open up all the workbooks one by one in the folder J:ABC and copy cells C2 and C4 values in the A and B columns of TEST workbook.
e.g There are 5 workbooks in the folder J:ABC so when the TEST workbook is opened then the code should run and open 1st workbook and copy values in cells C2 and C4 to it and close the workbook.
The code should run as below:
C2 value will go in Test workbook B1
C4 value will go in Test workbook A1
Close 1st workbook
C2 value will go in Test workbook B2
C4 value will go in Test workbook A2
close 2nd workbook.
C2 value will go in Test workbook B3
C4 value will go in Test workbook A3
close 3rd workbook.
and so on It will be going to next rows in A and B columns.
I m not able to use the standard Excel Paste Special function when I copied a range of cells in another Excel workbook opened in a separate instance of Excel. Instead, Paste Special thinks that I have copied some non-Excel objects and gave me the Paste As options. This is not the case if I open both workbook within the same instance of Excel. Could you share with us if there is a trick to trigger the normal Paste Special options in such situations (without having to invoke Macro procedures)?
I have an open workbook (A) and this is where the code should reside. I want to use VBA to copy the content of an entire worksheet from a closed workbook (B) to an existing worksheet in workbook A. How would you accomplish this?
I also have a workbook called DecMonthlyTotal in the same folder with the same named worksheets.
I am looking for a macro to be placed in the DecMonthlyTotal that will pull the data from the Cashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name Cashable12-13, it will also pull the data from the NonCashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name NonCashable12-13
Both the Cashable12-13 and the NonCashable12-13 have Columns A - G The row that the macro should start the copying from is Row 3 for each of the workbooks; however I don't have an end row for the workbooks as this will vary.
I have 3 workbooks open, the main WB has my command button + code in it, and the other 2 were opened up using the existing code in my main workbook.
Using general code e.g( Thisworkbook, activeworkbook, workbooks(1)), how can I activate one out of the 3?
I know the main workbook can be accessed using "thisworkbook", but when I activate it, I can't activate one of the others in my next line of code using activeworkbook.activate, or workbooks(1).activate.
Am trying to copy some code from the ThisWorkbook object into about 100 other Workbooks. I know how to Import and Export Modules, but when I export code from ThisWorkbook in saves it as a CLS file. Upon export a new class module is created. I simply want to create code that will automatically copy the code from one VBA project ThisWorkbook object to another VBA project ThisWorkbook.
I have the code to open all the files etc just need to figure out how to import the code from ThisWorkbook.
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.
I found a great code for copying worksheets from multiple workbooks (up to 2000 workbooks) into one new workbook. It works perfectly for 99% of the copying/merging that i do. The only issue with the code is that it only copies from the active sheet in the other workbooks. I need it to copy from a specific sheet ("Travel") in all of the workbooks that i select. I've tried many ways to edit the code to change the activesheet to "Travel" but i cannot get it to work.
Option Explicit Sub CombineDataFiles() Dim DataBook As Workbook, OutBook As Workbook Dim DataSheet As Worksheet, OutSheet As Worksheet Dim TargetFiles As FileDialog Dim MaxNumberFiles As Long, FileIdx As Long, _ LastDataRow As Long, LastDataCol As Long,
I am attempting to create a macro that does the following. I need to copy the active workbook to 25 new or existing workbooks without showing "save as" etc. These workbooks will reside in the same directory as the active wb. Problem is, I have multiple directories that I will need to do the same action.
C:ClientClientNameExample1.xls (only has sheet1) ---This will be the master which needs to be copied to 25 more times like below.
I need to copy multiple workbooks of similar format into one new workbook called "ZZZ.xls". I have developed the below code but I got an error : Run-time error '1004': Paste method of worksheet class failed.
Dim Wk As Workbook Dim FileToOpen As Variant, i, j, k As Integer Dim NewWBName As String, NewWBName1 As Workbook Dim OutFileName As String
I have 600+ variations of the same workbook. Contained within each workbook is a worksheet, from which I need to copy and paste a range of cells into one "master" workbook. For example, in workbook 1 I need to copy rows 2:5 and paste that into the master workbook in cells 2:5. Then I need to open workbook 2, copy rows 2:5 and paste them into the master workbook starting at row 6. I have fumbled my way through everything except the pasting part into the Master workbook.
I'm trying to write code in Airport1.xlsm to allow me to create a macro to automatically copy data from Airport-Data.xlsm and reformat it to what is needed in Airport1.xlsm.
Basically I need the code to take each airport in column A of Airport-Data and where there is a non-zero value in rows column C to G I need it to clear the appropriate column in Airport1.xlsm and add a 1 to the appropriate box.
I got stuck thinking about the nested For Next Cell in range procedure and how to execute it with a search for the correct row in Airport1.xlsm.
I about 150 different workbooks that I need to copy the cell data from the first sheet to a second workbook
The code is running all the way through to the "Clear values?" pop-up box, BUT nothing is actually being pasted into my second workbook
Sub TransferData() Dim wkb As Workbook, wks As Worksheet, LastRow As Long Dim FilePath As String, FileName As String Dim ws As Worksheet, blnOpened As Boolean 'Change these variables as desired... FilePath = "C:UsersPipeline2DesktopOveralnd Focal Points" 'change path here
All i did was i just created a form to open a workbook from the directories.
Code to copy the data from that recently opened workbook to my workbook where I have my forms. I need to copy that data as in the case that i don't know the workbook and the sheet name i'am going to open as i may open any of the files!!
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.
I have Book1 (reference workbook) and Book2 (where i copy values from Book1)
Now I have macro to fetch the datas and paste the values in the format below.
But I can only doing this for one reference workbooks. But i need to add more reference workbooks in a file and paste to Book2. (etc: Book1, Book3, Book4, ....... to Book2)
Book2 looks like:
A1 B1 C1 D1 Name Adress Age Sex Ozan xxxxxx 27 M
Here' s the Code.
Option Explicit Sub TransferData() Dim wkb As Workbook, wks As Worksheet, LastRow As Long Dim FilePath As String, FileName As String Dim ws As Worksheet, blnOpened As Boolean 'Change these variables as desired...
I have two spreadsheets in different workbooks ( workbook 1: sheet 1 and workbook2: sheet1), here i need to compare column 5 in Book1 and Column 5 for all cells, say X is the value we are looking for..
X occurs once in book1 and might occur more than once in book2..so if a match occurs ( that is once the code checks that there is X occuring in both books in columns 5) it should copy all rows in book 2 where X occurs to a new workbook 3 in sheet 1 and also it shoud copy entire row data where X occurs in book 1 sheet 1 . But this data from book 1 has to be copied at the end of row after the data from book 2 has been copied.
if X occurs 4 times in book 2 , then 4 rows have to be copied in book 3 and then data from Book 1 where X occurs only once is copied 4 times at the end of the data from book 2.
this process has to repeated for all cells in columns 5 in book1 and column 5 in book2 .
Dim M, N As Range, x As Variant, y As Variant Dim NewRange As Range
I have two workbooks, each with columns titled State Code & County Code. I would like to pull data from one workbook into the other workbook using conditionals. (Copy/Paste will not work as the file I am pulling into has MSA Codes in the same columns)
I have around 200 excel spreadsheets/workbooks with identical ranges but each with different data. There is a total of 5 columns and 225 rows in each spreadsheet/workbook. Looks something like this:
Title 1 Title 2 Title 3 Title 4 Title 5
A2 B2 C2 D2 E2
The Cells I need to copy are in BOLD. I am trying to paste them onto another workbook as follows
Workbook # File 2 File 3 File 4 A2 Title 5 A3 Title 5
As you can see, each workbook has identical A2 and Title 5 columns, so they only need to be copied once onto the Main workbook where data from the B and E columns are different for each Workbook. So not only I need to copy and paste from a Workbook onto the Main Workbook, but the code has be able to paste it onto a new row in the Main Workbook (where each row in the Main Workbook will correspond to the data copied from Workbooks 1-200.
I am new to VBA but I tried a code where I would copy and paste one cell at a time onto the same workbook and not onto the Main Workbook, and then how to copy and paste from one workbook to another, but as you can imagine that would take a long time:
It seems like I need some kind of loop, where it would copy and paste a set of cells and repeat the entire process until it reaches the end of the Workbook 1 while making sure when doing same thing for workbook 2, that the data pastes onto a new row onto the Main Workbook. I feel I have the logic down, but its in the syntax where I am failing.
