Combining Multiple Excel Files To One Workbook But Different Worksheets?
Jul 17, 2013
I have five excel separate excel files containing values covering more than 500,000 rows each. I want to put then in a single excel workbook without tedious work of copy/paste to sheets of this workbook.
I have multiple worksheets spread across multiple Excel files (1 worksheet per file).
All files are stored in the same folder, and all worksheets have the same column headers and structure. I need a block of code that will combine all of these worksheets into a single worksheet in a master Excel file. That is, the code needs to:
1. Open the first Excel file. 2. Copy the first worksheet's contents into the first worksheet of the master file, beginning at the next empty row it finds. 3. Close the Excel file, and move on to the next file. 4. Repeat.
So in the end, ten worksheets residing on ten different Excel files will be combined into a single worksheet in a single file. No breaks are needed between them, instead, the last row of a worksheet would be followed by the first row of the next one immediately below it. No aggregate functions involved, no sums, nothing like that (which is why I don't think I can use the Consolidate function in Excel).
This is a sample of what I am trying to accomplish (file attached). I have information in one worksheet (called MasterList) and a second worksheet called (RecordList). I want to take information from MasterList and RecordList and combine them to produce a report (Results). Assume the user does not have access to MasterList or Results.
The user would enter the UID in RecordList, which then populates information from MasterList. There can be multiple entries for each UID and there is no set number of entries (could be 1, could be 500)
The user enters the UID into RecordList, which populates information from MasterList. The user then adds in the additional information into the fields.
What I want is all the information from the Master List must be reported whether anything exists in RecordList or not. If there is information in the RecordList, display it and on a seperate line for each entry. Each UID then needs to be totalled (which can be done through pivot table later).
I have 8 different files all have a set of data in them
each one has a long list of (column a-n) however the number of rows change by date. I need each file copied into the finalfile.xls one after another. in the files that will be merged into the final file the final row i need copied is blank. I have all the copy formulas and everything set, I just need a range to copy that automaticaly takes cell a10 to the first blank a cell from each file and pastes it in the finalfile.xls under the last paste so they dont over write each other.
I'm currently doing a survey using an excel workbook that contains multiple questions across multiple worksheets using radio buttons linked to certain cells.
I have around 400 workbooks coming back to me, so what i want to do is take specific values from across many worksheets within each workbook and combine them into a large master table in a seperate workbook.
I've tried using VBA, but not being very proficient at it i've hit a brick wall with that, so i'm hoping that there is an easier way to do it than what i'm currently pursuing.
The setup: A software application I regularly use produces csv data files (in this case approx 300 files). These I have converted to xls format using a separate macro. The files are in one folder and named as follows eg
I then created a macro using code I sourced from the internet, and included some addtional commands (filename, copy/paste). See below. This macro opens the all the xls data files in the folder and copies the relevant data to an analysis workbook [Analysis sheet, Results sheet, Master sheet] ie the data is copied from the data file and pasted into the Analysis worksheet. Then the results are copied from the Results sheet to the Master sheet. So far so everything works.
My problem is this: I'm stumped at how to delete rows from the xls data files before running the analysis workbook and macro. In other words, after converting the csv files to xls format I need to clean the xls data files.
I have a separate xls file with criteria data in two columns:
The rows in a particular data file, with dates that are not present in the Criteria workbook must be deleted. This to be done for every data file in the folder. Also, I need to exclude rows for specific time periods eg 12H00AM - 04H00AM from all the files irrespective of date.
the code needed [should a separate macro be run or can code be placed within the present macro?]. I've tried looking for something similar on the internet, but my requirements seem too customized to be able to adapt the code that I found. And of course this is waaaay above my present skill level!
'This code opens up data files (xls) in a specified folder and copies data A1:G17281 to an Analysis workbook (Analysis sheet).
'The data from the Results sheet is then copied to the Master sheet.
Dim wkbDest As Workbook Dim wksDest As Worksheet Dim wkbSource As Workbook Dim wksSource As Worksheet Dim MyPath As String Dim MyFile As String
I am trying to do is have a worksheet that gets its information from other worksheets within the same workbook. Some of the worksheets that it gets its data from are web queries, and as such change on occasion (columns stay the same but rows get inserted or deleted as data on the web page that it is importing changes). Also due to this being an import I can not change directly the format that comes onto the sheets (ig split into different columns etc). Much easier described within the example as I am not sure of the words to best describe the end result I am looking for. A copy of a smaller version of what I am doing is attached
I have the below macro which is failing to insert text into A1 of the Header Sheet, followed by the values in the designated cells that are from Sheet1. I would also like to have the values in cells J2 and K2 enclosed in single quotes.
Sub Header() Worksheets("Header").Activate ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1).Select ActiveCell.Value = "create or replace" & " '" & Sheet1.Range("J2").Cell.Value & "' " & " '" Sheet1.Range("K2").Cell.Value & "' " End Sub
how do I get it into the nicely formatted version most of you are using? The Mr Excel HTML add-in?
what i want to do is 1 have a workbook with 3 worksheets. Sheet1 contains the columns:
Reference No. Line Item No. Amount Date 1 3 500 12/01 2 4 900 01/01 Sheet2:
Reference No. Line Item No. Quantity PersonInCharge 1 3 10 Kim 5 6 60 Noel
For sheet 3, what i want to happen is that when i run the VBA macro, it searches through both worksheets (Sheet1 and Sheet2), finding rows that have matching Reference No. AND Line Item No. and combine all of the columns (and values) for that particular row into another row in Sheet 3. So for the above data set, the resulting data in Sheet 3 would be:
Reference No. Line Item No. Amount Date Quanity PersonInCharge 1 3 500 12/01 10 Kim
As this is the only entry in both sheet1 and sheet2 where there is a matching reference and line item no.
I have a set of related variables that are split over multiple worksheets, and I need to be able to take specific information, duplicate certain values and produce an output sheet for use in a separate piece of software.
The variables are: Position Number (Sheet 1) Position Title (Sheets 1 and 2) Position Requirement (Sheet 2) Requirement Importance (Sheet 2)
The output sheet requires a list of all the requirements for each position number, which means the position number itself needs duplicating (in new rows) X number of times, where X is the number of requirements assigned. The appropriate requirements are then to be pasted in next to each position number (and the requirements can be found by comparing position number to title, and from title to requirements).
Normally, Iíd be able to do this using lookups and so forth, but my problem arises when I have multiple position numbers with the same related title (in the attached example, there are three plumbers with unique position numbers). I canít figure out how to say to Excel ďa plumber has five requirements, and there are three plumbers, so duplicate each position number for each plumber five times, then insert the appropriate qualifications (and their associated importance values) next to the position numbersĒ.
I need to open each workbook, copy Sheet1, paste to next available Sheet# in Combined.xls, close the workbook and move to the next workbook.
I have the code for copying a specific sheet from one workbook to a new workbook. But I do not have the code which would perform the above mentioned task for me and I don't have any idea for how am I going to do this without your help
I have used the Search option to find out if this question had already been answered but I could not find a solution for this specific request
I have different excel files in a specific folder. All the files have only two sheets with same kind of data, formatting etc. Now I want to merge selective files on need basis (only the first sheet data) into a new different worksheet in which I will be running the code. Provide me a macro which will ask me to select the files I want to merge. Also the data range of the files ( needs to be merged) will vary time to time, so the macro needs to take care of that as well.
I'm using Xl 07 and need to combine two sheets of contact info and have them sorted alphabetically.
Each contact entry takes the follwing form(comma's denote new columns)
55555, Name , John, Smith, Tel: , 555-555-5555 ID , Company, XXX , , Email, xxxxxx
Each sheet has a list of 200 or so entries about 400 rows long. The entries on each sheet are sorted in alphabetical order. the names also alternate alphabetically from sheet to sheet. So when i look at the entries on my final sheet, the 1st will be from sheet1 the second from sheet2 the third from sheet1 and the fourth from sheet2 etc.
I'm not sure whether I should build a new list by pulling alternating entries from each sheet or just copy one list below the other and then try to sort it somehow.
Need a excel macro which can compare 2 xls files and highlight cells which are different in the 2 files its like a slightly advanced one >a prompt which asks file 1 after selecting file a prompt whichasks for file 2 ..then on running it should highlight cells in file two which are different from file one Both file have same layout ie if file one has n columns in n worksheets file 2 will also have same . So the comparison should be done for each worksheet in both file and cells should be highlighted ..
So, today my manager came to me and informed me that he wanted me to do a little data entry for him... WOW... So I have about 2000 invoices to go through(all excel files, in their dated folders... 12-2-2013(folder) and the filenames are 12-2-2013(1), 12-2-2013(2) etc.)
I need to take these individual files and have certain cells from each in certain cells of a new workbook for example...
file 12-2-2013(1)... I need cell C3 from that file to go to cell A2(and this will be the same for all the other files... 12-2-2013(2) cell C3 needs to be in A3 etc etc etc.. this is the sale date) file 12-2-2013(1)... I need cell a15 and b15(they are both "stretched out" cells) to be put in C3 of the new workbook and so on.
is there an easy way/formula to do this all? I have to have this done by friday at the latest(tomorrow preferred @@) I have to input data for 7 cells...
I have a workbook that contains over 100 worksheets with stock data and price information. It uses a screenscraper to update the workbook each day with the latest day's price, and then exports each of these .csv files into a local directory. The macro for this is working. In effect it is generating a price history file automatically in my absence for me that can be read by charting software.
What I would like though is a macro to loopthrough and backfill missing price histories on each worksheet. I have a source of .csv price histories already, but would like to avoid having to cut and paste each of the 105 files manually, as it may become a regular occurence.
Each worksheet that requires backfilling has the stock code in the cell "A2", so that can be used to search for the filename Range("A2") & ".csv"
This is as far as I have got - however it results in a runtime error (91) Object variable or With block variable not set, pointing to this line:-
I am troubleshooting my macro that seems to cause a data shift with the Letter "F" when I import multiple CSV files into one spreadsheet. When I go outside of the macro and record a macro and import the CSV into a workbook it works perfectly fine. But there must be something in this code that is causing the shift:
VB: Private Declare Function SetCurrentDirectoryA Lib _ "kernel32" (ByVal lpPathName As String) As Long Public Function ChDirNet(szPath As String) As Boolean Dim lReturn As Long lReturn = SetCurrentDirectoryA(szPath)
I have attached an excel workbook that shows how the macro imports vs. a regular import. Why "F" is causing a shift in the data.
I found the code below on the internet and adjusted it to my needs.It is working perfectly fine except for the fact that it opens a new workbook to import the data. I run this code from a workbook named "InstronImport.xlsm" and would like it to add the data in this workbook instead of a new one. I have been trying for a day now and can't seem to figure out how to do it.
Sub ImportRawFilesInstron() Dim FilesToOpen Dim x As Integer Dim wkbAll As Workbook Dim wkbTemp As Workbook Dim sDelimiter As String On Error Goto ErrHandler Application.

I am using excel 2003. I have more than 500 text file which are result of some numerical analysis. I have another bunches of the same file number. I can record and play around with macro.
What I want to do is -copy selected cells from imported text file in excel and paste in new or in first opened excel file. I have recorded macro for one file including importing from text to excell, copy and paste the selected file (look the macro below). But I have more than 500 files and I want to do the macro the same thing for each file in one excell file. Do i have to make one macro for each file??, that takes much more time than manual import and copy paste. The cell position and range to copy is the same, but have to be pasted in new row (in one excel summery file). The file name of each text file is different and all are in the same folder.
I need to use VBA read all historical data files, then, copy all the data from those files to Sheet[FX Historical Data] and Sheet[Position Data] respectively.
First, I copy a code from the text book, which allows me to copy one data files every time. Now, I have only 6 files need to copy, but if there are thousands of files? I try lots of codes but I still cannot find a way to solve my problem.
Second, can I use the function of "folder dialog open" to select the data files I want, and then copy the data inside to Sheet[FX Historical Data] and Sheet[Position Data]?
I've pieced together code from a number of solutions on the forum and figured out how to find the files I need to process, but can't seem to figure out the code to actually combine/append each worksheet into a single one. I've searched the "sea of options" on this forum and managed to do one thing well. Pardon all my notes embedded in the code below, but if I don't do it that way, I'll only confuse myself further (which is easily accomplished) ... or lose my notes!
Iím going to run this code from an add-in menu, which is already created and working (yeaah!) Ö so (I think) I need to have the code either create a file named "Master (Combined).xls" in the target folder ... or ... have a file already created in MYFOLDER and have this code delete all but the header row when the file is opened(???) The "Master (Combined).xls" workbook needs to consist of one worksheet named "Master". I want it to open the current workbook (.foundfiles(i)), select all the data, and append it to the master workbook on the "Master" worksheet (sheet 1). The Master Worksheet in the Master Workbook needs to start out as a blank sheet ... except for the header row. I can add code to put the headers in at the start, if necessary

I have an Excel Spreadsheet (2007) that contains over 500,000 records that shows Electric meter usage per month over a 24 month period per meter. What I want to be able to do is to select a meter row per number and copy is to it's own worksheet. At the end - I want to be able to have a seperate worksheet per electric meter number - that I can create a graph. If I go through all 9000 meters and copy and paste into a different worksheet - it will take me weeks to do manually. How can I do this automatically?
I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.
On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells
On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells
D4 & D5 E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42
It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead
