Compare And Merge Data From Two Different Workbooks
Apr 4, 2007
I'm sure that there is an excel function that can do this but darned if I can figure out which one it is. This is what I would like to do: I have two different workbooks. Each workbook has one worksheet that has two columns of data. The first column is a part number and the second column is a price. The first workbook holds my master data. Starting at the first column of the first row on the second workbook I wish to compare the part number held in that cell with the part numbers held in the first column of the first workbook. If there is a match then I want to take the associated price from the second workbook and place it in a cell to the right of the corresponding part number in the first book - actually in the first open cell in the third column. I wish to do this automatically via macro, or otherwise, for all part numbers in the second workbook. The macro will also need to recognize that some part numbers in the second workbook may not appear in the first workbook in which case that part number is skipped.
The end product is my first workbook that has been transformed from two columns of data to three columns of data - one part number and two price points although not all part numbers will have the two price points. If it helps I can copy the data in the second workbook and paste it in to a second worksheet in the first workbook and do all the work in the one workbook.
Some copies of excel workbooks are made using save as option for data entry purpose. Each copy has same file structure because they are created using save as option. Is it possible to merge them (preferably preserving the macros) ? The workbooks are not shared because they were protected sheets and so macros wont run.
I have three source workbooks that needed to be consolidated into a master workbook pasting the data with values & formatting.
The Master workbook also contains 6 additional worksheets that link to the data pulled in from the source files. My question is how do I write the code so the source files populate the master in a specific order. For example, the 3 source files are named "Central" "NED" and "WEST" and I need them to populate the master workbook in that order.
This is the code I am using to consolidate the data:

i had received a new project. i want to compare the data among 2 different workbooks. there are book1 and book2 which i attach at here. if there are 1 cells is different with both workbooks, then the whole row will copy and paste to a new workbook "output.xls".
i also attach the "output.xls" at here.
the background color i highlighted which data is different, just for easy to view. so can ignore the color.
I have 2 workbooks containg about 600 names and the serial number of the computer they are using. One I keep so I know who has what machine. The other is created automatically by a service we subscribe to. This workbook is loaded with errors. Machine costs being charged to the wrong people.
They both contain last name, first name and serial number. Although not in the same columns. With formulas, I have been able to take the serial number from the service.xls and find that serial number in the inventory.xls.
The ultimate goal is this: Take serial number from service.xls and compare it to inventoryxls. If it exist, put the first and last name of the user from inventory.xls onto the service.xls sheet. If it does not exist, then put "does not exist"
For the past several days I have been attempting to write a macro, which in theory would check the values within a one- sheet workbook (we’ll call it run_list.xls) against the values in two different workbooks (we’ll call these production.xls, development.xls). However after several days I am nowhere closer to solving this problem then I was when I started. I’ve tried different scripts and variations of vlookup, but I have been unsuccessful in tailoring what I have found to meet my needs. So I feel it is time to lie down and scream for a medic.
Here’s some background on the workbooks. The sheets in all three workbooks are set up in the same manner. Cell “A1” contains time/ date, cell “A2” contains a lot#, cells “A3:A99” contain positioning data, and cells “B3:B99” contain serial numbers associated with tubes in the specific positions. The only differences between the workbooks are the sheets in production.xls and development.xls are labeled according to their specific lot number.
What I have been trying to do is to take a value from cell "B3"in run_list.xls and find where that value occurs in column B either of workbooks. When that value was found I wanted to copy cell "A2" from its sheet and paste that value in cell "D3" of run_list.xls. I had also wanted to repeat that those steps for every cell in column B containing a serial #. If a serial number was not found I wanted it to report “Not Found”. There are also times when instead of a serial number a phrase “No Trakmate” is listed. In these cases I had intended to skip these lines.
Also, since production.xls, development.xls are updated frequently their names are also updated with new version numbers ie. Production_v10.xls I had intended to allow the user to choose what files to search in but was unable to figure out how to add a second location.
Here is the scenario. I am running a business and each day I download my orders for the day. The information includes customer names and addresses. The customer name is for example in column E. We will call this "Book1".
I have a second workbook that I use to store bad customer information. i.e. customers that I do not wish to sell to. The information stored here is customer name and address e.g. column A - customer name, column B - 1st line of address etc. This will be "Book2".
I wish to programmatically be able to compare customer names in column E Book1 to the customer names stored in column A Book2. Any matches found should highlight the rows (i.e. orders) in Book1.
I have tried to make this clear as possible. I want to be able to do this as a macro hence programmatically so when I click a button this comparison/highlighting takes place.
I have two workbooks: one is a daily workbook that will be used to keep track of work accomplished, the other is a weekly report that is generated by head office.
What I need to do each week when the head office report is generated is to match up the Project ID's (they are the constant in each workbook) from the daily workbook with the weekly one. If there are Project ID's that are new, the corresponding information would then be copied over to the daily workbook.
I am working on the copy command but I'm just not sure how to go about setting up the search to match Project ID's.

I have 2 worksheets that need to be merged. More specifically, I have one 'master' XLS file with some columns included in it that are missing from a second XLS file. I need to merge the new columns (with column titles in row 5) into the second 'auxilary' sheet without touching data above row 5.
I have data in 2 workbooks. Book1 - Sheet1 - Col A and Book2 - Sheet2 - Col A. I want to compare Book2 with Book1 and list all values in Book2 that do not find a match in Book1. I want to run a macro for this
I have a spreadsheet with two worksheets (sheet 1 and 2). Sheet 1 has all the current employee data on it e.g. employee number, Forename, Surname, Address, Pay rate, etc. Sheet 2 was last month's employee data in the same format. I want to compare the two worksheets on worksheet 3 and highlight any changes or just put the changes on worksheet 3 (this would be better).
The problem is employees might be on different rows on each worksheet and some employees might not be on one spreadsheet due to staff leaving and starting.
Each staff member has a unique employee number to identify them. So I need a formula that matches the employee number and then looks in the cells in sheet 1 and 2 and if different puts the value in sheet 1 into the cell in sheet 3.
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 am trying to get excel to search a workbook/(or worksheet if easier) for a matching unique value and fill in its associated data. My first workbook has the SKU (A) filled in but not the UPC (B). My second workbook has both the SKU (A) and the matching UPC (C) filled in.
I need to take both workbooks/(worksheets), compare the SKUs, and if a matching SKU is found, extract the UPC from Workbook 2 and fill in the UPC field in Workbook 1, and if no UPC is present in Workbook 2, then it leaves the cell in Workbook 1 blank.
I have 5 worksheets, representing data from 5 days, M-F. On a weekly basis I open all 5 files and manually copy, and paste all into one large weekly file. Does not take very long so I am probably just being lazy but if I could find a simple solution to merge all 5 into one quickly it would be great.
The one solution I was planning on implementing was to cycle through all OPEN workbooks, copy the data into a new workbook, and close each workbook as the copy and paste is done. This will work but to me its 'dirty'. Each workbook only has one Worksheet.
I have two excel files and i would like to compare/merge with conditions. I have 9000 different items and these items i am getting from my distributor in an excel worksheet format. This pricing will then be imported into a point of sale system, but before i import it into the point of sale i need to merge the old pricing from the point of sale to the new distributor pricing.
The problem i have is not everything is in stock and they use the word "CALL" for non stock items. What i am trying to do is have a macro or a program to compare both spreadsheets by searching all item skew rows with call on the pricing column on the same row as the item skew and then not to merge with the old pricing point of sale unless the point of sale doesn't have this new skew. After this has completed then merge the new pricing to the old pricing together. The new pricing item numbers are on column A
B = Description C = Cost D = Item Name or (Description 2) E = Margin F = retail price
Old Pricing on worksheet Inventory A11 = Description B11 = Item Name or (Description 2) C11 = Item Numbers F11 = Cost G11 - retail price
The main reason why i need to do this is because when a customer would like pricing from our point of sale system, I wouldn't like to tell them that i have to call my distributor each time. I would rather have a little older pricing than no pricing at all.
I have 24differnet workbooks each with one sheet with data. Each sheet has the sae headers with differen amounts of info under the headers. I am looking for a quick way to get all 24 sheets in to one workbook instead of copying and paste.
I have a client that I process their data every Monday and am already using some VBA code on it. I receive their data in four workbooks that have the same name every week. CABAM_U262.XLS CABAM_U265.XLS CABOB_U262.XLS CABOB_U265.XLS and the files are put in the same subdirectory every week: D:HealthcareNewBusiness
What I'd like to do is run some VBA code that would automatically look in this subdirectory for the four files and merge the rows of account data (rows 2 - the last used row and columns A - S) from these four workbooks into one workbook and have the header row from any of the four workbooks (they're all the same) placed in the new "merged" workbook at row 1. Could anyone provide to me the VBA code that would do this?
Each month I run 2 separate reports and have macros that break each report out by distributor. The end result is each spreadsheet creates a new tab and new workbook for each distributor’s information. Each spreadsheet has information for 30 distributors, so I end up with 60 new tabs and 60 new workbooks.
Example: Spreadsheet one separates detailed sales information for: Abc Company 123 Company Misc. Company
Spreadsheet two separates summary sales information for: Abc Company 123 Company Misc. Company
Currently, I save each spreadsheets new workbooks in a different folder because each spreadsheet creates workbooks with the same distributor name. I then go back and open each spreadsheet with the same name and move a sheet from one workbook to the other and resave. Now I am trying to figure out the best way to merge these back together and am struggling with where to start.
I could keep opening each of the 2 new spreadsheets that are alike and copy or move sheets but with 30 new tabs to move to the matching spreadsheet it becomes time consuming. I’m hoping there’s a better way!
I’ve attached the Sales Detail Example and Sales Summary Example to see how the spreadsheets are being broken out but had to remove some data to trim down file sizes.
I have been looking everywhere and I can't seem to find what I am looking for. I want to create a Macro that will go into a folder, search every Workbook (each with multiple Worksheets), and copy and paste the data onto a single Worksheet. The data that I want will begin in Row 3 of each Worksheet (the first two rows are titles and headers). The formatting will be the same for each sheet.
The only other part is that Column G has the following formula in each cell that I would like to keep if possible.
Two support staff added data to the same base document. I now have two files that I need to combine into one. Is there a way to merge the two together so that I have one workbook that contains all the information entered by both users? We use Excel 2007.
I have had a good look around and have found some scripts that look like they can help but do not. here is my situation
I have 300+ questionaires in excel that contain around 20 questions with each question having the possibility of 5 answers i.e A1 A1Do you like this service, answers will be scored in cells F1,G1,H1,I1,J1
What I would like is for a master document to combine all the data into 1 document so I will know how many of the 300 have F1,G1 etc.
In the filed F1 the variable may be X or it may be a number, I would like to add up the number of non blanks in that field, from 300+ closed workbooks
