I want to create a single spreadsheet containing a selected row from each of 365 spreadsheets;

Background:
(1) I have 365 Excel spreadsheets (1 for every day of the year);
(a) 24 values (one for every hour) horizontally with hourly average temperatures; and
(b) 8,000 records (vertically) for 8,000 different locations;

I want to create a new single spreadsheet in which I select a specific location (say, Linden, New Jersey), and capture the temperatures for all 24 hours (horizontally) and all 365 days (vertically);

the file names are all;

20070101.xls, 20070102.xls, 20070103.xls, ............ 20071231.xls (one for each day of the year)

(I tried using =VLOOKUP(Linden,CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,"'.xls'!","\$B\$1:\$CA\$8017"),3,FALSE); where A1, A2 & A3 are year, month & day respectively) but was unsuccessful;

## Combing 2 Cells Into 1 But Using A Fraction..

Nov 24, 2008

Im combing 2 cells into 1 but using a fraction..

I created 2 examples of what im trying to do..

Example.
A1 = 22
A2 = 11 3/4

=A1&"'-"&TEXT(A2,"# ?/?")&"''"

[b]22'-11 3/4"[b]

but when A2 = 11

i get this..

22'-11___''
on excel it has some space between the 11 and '' but i cant show that here..

i would like the '' to be next to the 11. is there any way to do that?

## Combing Coinciding Results

Aug 22, 2009

if it is possible to do the following with the help of the formulas alone. I have a list of events which START and END at different times. Some of them start when the other events are still in progress (their end date has not been reached yet). I need a way to combine the results of the events whose times overlap. The results of the overlapping events should be multiplied and stored as a single event.

## Find Multiple Instances Of Single Criterion In Row & Return To A Single Col

May 8, 2006

Find Multiple instances of Numeric Criterion in Row & Return To a Single
Column.

I have a Dynamic Named Range "Data" spanning 10 Columns and many Rows.
Each Row may contain duplicates of the Numeric Criterion.

I would like to find ALL instances of a specific Numeric Criterion across
each single Row in the Dynamic Range "Data" and have the Results returned to
a New Sheet in a single column.

NEW Sheet:
The Numeric Criterion is housed in G5.
The matched criterion should be returned to the New Sheet starting at G7.
Duplicate instances in the same Row should ALL be returned to the same cell
in Column G on the New Sheet.

Sample Data Layout:
Columns I J K L M N O P Q R
Row No.76 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1
Row No.77 2 2 3 2 1 2 2 0 0 0
Row No.78 3 3 3 3 3 0 3 0 3 0

Scenario:
Looking for Numeric Criterion 1 (one).

Expected Results - New Sheet:
Row No.7 Column G (Cell G7) 1111111
Row No.8 Column G (Cell G8) 1

In Row 76 of the Sample Data ALL seven Numeric Criterion of 1 (one) should be
returned to the same cell G7.
In Row 77 of the Sample Data there is only one Numeric Criterion of 1 and it
should be returned to cell G8.

## Macro To Copy Many Columns Contents And Combing Them In 1 Column

Feb 9, 2009

Was looking into this, but basically i have a repetitive task of copying contents from various columns, and pasting them into 1 column.

1 right after the other. I figured there could be a way for a macro to copy contents from multiple columns and paste them into 1 column.

I have including 2 files, 1 from the start of the file, and 1 how it should be so it will have clarify what i am trying to do.

So basically if you open book1 , i have factory install tabs,

I need the columns contents from the first tab the (5k-20k) starting with Column B, then E, then H, and so on( Every 3rd column starting with B ) to be copied and pasted in Column A of the (Factory Install Tab) ( last tab ).

If you open the 2nd file this will be clearly understood. In the second file in the factory install tab you will notice i did the first 2. I highlighted each starting part in yellow just so its easier to see. SO in column A you should have all the contents in the 5k-20k tab ( starting with b every 3rd ), pasted in column A 1 after the other.

The next tab is the 30k tab, i need all of the columns contents copied starting with B ( every 3rd again ), copied in Column C of the Factory Install tab. Basically every tab's contents needs to have its own column in the Factory Install tab.

If anyone could help that would be great, this is a very time consuming process manually, and it would seem like a macro could be made to easily copy contents.

I'm having a problem with how excel opens my files. Up until yesterday when I would open any of my spreadsheets they would open seperately. I would have multiple files open across my taskbar and could easily switch between files with a simple Alt-tab windows function.

Now when I open multiple excel files it opens them under "one" file so to speak. The only way to switch between files is if I go to Window>then select the file I want or minimize within excel so I can see the other spreadsheets.

I have a workbook that I add about 20-35 tabs in a month. To individually go through and protect the sheet will take too much time, is there another way where I can select multiple tabs so the worksheets can be protected?

## Modify Multiple Spreadsheets At Once

Apr 28, 2008

i have admit forms for multiple patients, about 200 or so already done, and its set up to make an upload sheet, which we then add all of them to one big file to import to access. i am in the process of cleaning things up, but we need to add a formula to a cell to determine length of stay, and several similar things, but i'd like to not have to go and do it file by file.

is there any way to update all the files at once? some kind of automation? then changes would be in the same cell for each file.

or maybe some way to do a batch modify or something, so it can make the change, and run the two macros, one to make upload for file, one to dump it in the file that goes into access.

Jun 20, 2008

after finishing a huge macro, the last step is to take row 1 of sheet 1 and insert it at the top of every worksheet.

This is the first way I tried it. It does absolutely nothing (except copy the row).

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("1:1").Copy
ws.Range("1:1").Insert Shift:=xlDown
Next ws
This was another try, which resulted in a 1004 "Select method failed" error

I have a workbook to collate ratings for staff, there are three sheets, one is a summary of data, and two are sheets that can have data entered into them, called "Eligible" and "Ineligible".

I would like to write a macro to search cells in "Eligible" that contain a staff number, and copy this data to "Summary". If excel encounters a blank cell, i.e it has no staff number in it, it will move to she sheet "Ineligible" and perform the same operation, pasting the data below that which has been copied from "Eligible"

To further complicate things, every time the macro runs to populate "Summary" I would like it to clear the existing data in "Summary", to allow for deletions in "Eligible" or "Ineligible".

## Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting to show when an employee is both scheduled to be working for the current date, and is trained in a particular task.

I have a spreadsheet called "Training" for all of the tasks that employees can be trained in, with the employee names in each row, and the task names at the top of each column. The intersection of an employee's row with a task's column will have an "X" if the employee is trained in the task. This is the spreadsheet that I'd like to be formatted; if the employee is trained and also scheduled to be working, I'd like to the "X" to change to a different color.

There are separate spreadsheets within the same workbook for the schedule. This is a bit more complex since the since each week of the schedule has its own spreadsheet within the workbook; each spreadsheet is named for the Saturday of the week it is for, such as "06-07". I've been able to successfully have other formulas in the workbook auto-adjust to the current week's schedule by using variations on the TODAY function (something like INDIRECT("'"&(TEXT(TODAY()-MOD(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),1),7),"mm-dd"))), but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into conditional formatting. On each schedule sheet, there is a column for each day of the week and a row for each employee. The cell for a given day will contain the employee's schedule if they are scheduled, or it will be blank if they are not scheduled. So, the conditional formatting formula would just need to check to see if the appropriate cell was blank or not.

## Transfer Data Between Multiple Spreadsheets?

## Using Multiple Spreadsheets To Pull Data Onto One

Apr 16, 2014

I have several excel spreadsheets by which I would like to add together certain values in the column with the same columns of all the other excel spreadsheets. So basically, If one of the values are "SELF" , I would like to calculate how many times that value occurs in all the spreadsheets. Any easier way to organize the data to be able to do this also.

I have a master spreadsheet that links to various other spreadsheet for budget figures. I have now created and updated the budgets for the 2008/09 budget year.

It is painstaking to update the links and browse to the new files one at a time and point them to their new folder. Is there a way I can update all of the link workbooks to the new directory in one fell swoop?

I have a workbook with two spreadsheets. One contains customer information. The other line items and shipping information. I would like to pull the customer number over to the line items spreadsheet. Both spreadsheets have the order number, but note there is a new line for every item in an order on the line items sheet. How do I accomplish this?

## Search And Compile Multiple Spreadsheets

Jul 6, 2013

The company deals with Machine services, we maintain, service and brake-fix machine problems, the machines are manufactured my ourselves and there are approximately 15 different machines.

We have a Field Service spreadsheet that is filled in by all service engineers for every job they go on, this is filled in with information like:-

Serial Number
Machine Type
Hours Run Time
Reason for Visit
Reported Problem
etc, etc

All the forms are identical so all the fields are identical

Field Service Record Spares 2013 Master Rev4 (2).xlsx (this is the correct file). The forms are then saved on a central server folder and stored in month order.

Is there a way of creating a master excel sheet to gather all the information from all the Field Service spreadsheets which would then allow me to search all sheets by serial number or fault, without me having to copy and paste all the information into the master sheet??

We have 10 service engineers and each fills out 1 sheet per job per week, so a 4 week job will have 4 sheets for 1 engineer. an engineer could go on 5 jobs in 1 week and would therefore fill out 5 sheets. so we could be looking at in excess of 500 Field Service spreadsheet per year.

## Multiple Spreadsheets Share The Same Macro

Feb 3, 2010

I currently have a macro that can be used by multiple spreadsheets. Is there that I can execute the macro within any specific spreadsheet without saving it in each spreadsheet. I just want to place it in a general spot so that in case there is modifications, I only have to change it in one place.

Oct 1, 2012

## For Next Looping - Copying Multiple Spreadsheets

Sep 25, 2006

I am attempting to amalgamate several (100+) spreadsheets into a single spreadsheet. The data is very simple (only three columns, several rows). I have written a simple macro to copy 5 spreadsheets (called TIMESHEET1, TIMESHEET2 etc) into 1 spreadsheet called AMALGAMATED TIMESHEETS. I would like to expand this using a FOR - NEXT loop if possible - or any other way that someone can think of! I cannot use the variable TIMESHEETx as this is not accepted......

## Importing Macros Into Multiple Spreadsheets

Apr 19, 2007

Is there a way to automate the importing of macros into a list of files ? I have a number of files that I want to add some code to and was wondering if this could be automated as opposed to adding the code to each file manually as it's going to be a regular job.

I've written a routine to loop through the list of files and open them, I just want to know how, if possible, i can automatically import the required macros.

Apr 16, 2014

I am trying to find a code that will allow me to generate multiple sheets depending on what is selected in one specific column. I have found a code that is perfect for this however I can't seem to set the range. For example instead of copying all of column headings I only need to copy up to column AN2.

## Software To Display Multiple Spreadsheets In Rotation?

Mar 22, 2014

Any application that can integrate with Excel to display, in a timed rotation, multiple spreadsheet files to display live information.

I can use vba to create a screenshot on a timer and feed it into a screensaver folder, but I'd prefer to not go that route if possible.

## Lock And Unlock Multiple Excel Spreadsheets?

May 29, 2012
