Copy Data Between Workbooks Without Overwriting

Jan 19, 2008

I need to create a macro that will insert copied cells(cell range) from the clipboard into a cell on a different workbook and "shift cells down". The cell range in the clipboard will always be different and the position of the cell I select to insert the data into will also vary.

Copy / Move Data From One Column To Another Without Overwriting

Aug 11, 2014

I have a large spreadsheet which I have extracted the data I need, but I am now having a problem tiding it up.

To simplify. I have 2 columns, both containing data formatted as text, each column has some data, but on different rows.

I need to merge the 2 columns without overwriting the data on the second column, with blank data from the first column, and without the column shrinking or growing.

Here is a section of my spreadsheet that needs merging : Excel-1.PNG

I have tried copy > Paste Special > Skip Blanks, but it just copies the column to the other - no merging.

Copy And Paste Selection Macro Into New Worksheet Keeps Overwriting The Previous Data

Sep 19, 2012

I have a copy and paste macro below, that copies the selected rows and pastes them into a different sheet called Blank BOM. Each time they are pasted, it just writes over the previous items at the top of the list. I would like it to paste in the next open row, so I can go back and forth between the sheets and add things. Here is the code:

Sub CopyRow()
Selection.Copy Sheets("Blank BOM").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
End Sub

Copy Sheet To Same Workbook Without Overwriting Original

Aug 11, 2007

I have some code written to duplicate a template and rename the copy to "Working Copy".

But if I run the code more than once, it breaks as VBA tries to overwrite the sheet with the same name.

Would I would like is for the macro to check to see it already exists and duplicate the copy with some type of incremental integer. Thus the first duplicate would be Working Copy 1, and if the macro is run again, the duplicated copy would be Working Copy 2, etc.

here is what I have so far:

Sub SCButton()
Dim i As Integer 'for making Working Copy 1, 2, etc.

Sheets("SCTemplate").Select 'this file will eventually be hidden and thus the user with only see the wokring copies.
Sheets("SCTemplate").Copy After:=Sheets(4)
Sheets("SCTemplate (2)").Select
'some sort of If statement here to check for the sheets

Sheets("SCTemplate (2)").Name = "Calculation"

VBA - Copy Input From Sheet1 To Sheet2 Without Overwriting Information

Apr 7, 2013

I have created a code in which the information from Sheet 1 copies to Sheet 2 correctly. Every time I input new information for my click event (ticket sales/amount received/change due) I want this information to be displayed in Sheet 2. However, every time I start a new submission, the information overwrites on the second Row so that only one submission is displayed. I need to create a history of all submissions from Sheet 1. Here is the code that I have to copy Sheet 1 to Sheet 2:

intRow = intRow + 1
If intRow = 1 Then
intRow = intRow + 1
End If

Using A Combobox Without Overwriting Existing Data

Oct 9, 2008

I have a worksheet containing employee information (i.e. name, manager, department, etc.). I also have a userform that will be used to make changes to the employee information. The userform has three comboboxes and, when activated, the userform is populated with the existing data in the worksheet.

Here is the problem - I need to have the existing worksheet data populate (as it does now) but also have the combobox choices available in the event that one of the 'combo' fields need to be changed. How do I keep the existing worksheet data AND keep the functionality of the combobox?

Recording Data In Sequential Rows Without Overwriting

Aug 12, 2008

I am working on multiple sheets that collate to an “averages” sheet. The Averages sheet would need to collate the information historically.

I need a code that can be assigned to a button so when it’s clicked, the figures for this week are added to the figures that were from last week. So for example.

Worksheet 10, Rows 12 – 20 have the data from the last 8 weeks.

Worksheet 09 has this weeks data and a button to push. When pushed it adds the data from this week to row 21 in Worksheet 10.

The following week the button would add the data to row 22 and so on.

Essentially each time the button is pressed it drops the information in a row one lower than the last time the button was pressed.

Create Unique Values List While Overwriting Old Data?

Jan 24, 2012

I will copy a report into sheet 1, starting in the same place(A1), on a weekly basis. The headers are: Item, Quantity & Price

Week 1's report shows the following:
Windows 5 $1.00
Doors 6 $1.50
Chairs 7 $2.00

Week 2's report shows the following:
Windows 3 $1.00 (change in quantity)
Tables 7 $5.00 (new item)
Chairs 7 $2.50 (change in price)

I need to have a rolling, unique list on Sheet 2 that will do the following:

- add new line items

- keep old line items while checking to see if the quantity or price has changed.

Therefore, after week 2's report is pasted on sheet 1, Sheet 2 should look like this:

Windows 3 $1.00
Doors 6 $1.50
Chairs 7 $2.50
Tables 7 $5.00

Here's the most important part: There will be formulas in Column D in Sheet 2 that I need to stay with each item. generating the desired result on Sheet 2!

Stop Timer Macro From Overwriting Data In All Active Worksheets

Feb 17, 2014

I have a worksheet that has macro events attached to command buttons. When a ‘Start’ command button is clicked, a timer begins counting in seconds and displays the value in cell B3 until a ‘Stop’ command button is clicked. The event works flawlessly as long as I don’t open up another workbook (to continue working in Excel).

When the second workbook is open…then time stops working in the workbook where the macro was created…and starts displaying the ‘timer count in seconds’ in the new active workbook--which overwrites/destroys the data in the newly opened workbook. When I go back to the original book that called the macro…it continues counting again.

I need this timer to continue running in the workbook with the command buttons (in the background) while I work on other worksheets in other books. Is there a way to keep the timer running no matter how many other workbooks are opened and prevent it from overwriting whatever sheet is active? This code in the Increment Sub below ‘overwrites’ the contents of cell B3 on whatever sheet is active---and stops the timer in the on the sheet with the ‘Start’ command button.

VBA Copy Data Between Non-static Workbooks

Dec 21, 2009

Objective: Copy filtered contents between two workbooks.

Reason: I spend HOURS copying and pasting data between workbooks. We get files on average twice a week that contain multiple tabs of data that must be broken down and sent out to the end-users.
Example: Monday filename=neverconstant.xlsx, 11 tabs of unique data, 110 users that need the data but business dictates user1 can only see user1 data so I must filter user1 in tabs 1-11, copy raw data, put into a new workbook while naming tabs same as neverconstant.xlsx.

Thursday filename=stillnotconstant.xlsx, 8 tabs of unique data, 110 users that need the data but business dictates user1 can only see user1 data so I must filter user1 in tabs 1-8, copy raw data, put into a new workbook while naming tabs same as stillnotconstant.xlsx.

My biggest hangup is the filename is never constant. I am trying to make something that would add a workbook, add and name necessary tabs, copy and paste data into respective tabs and prompt me to "save as" with the new workbook. I am still VERY new to vba so please dont laugh to hard when you see what I have so far.

Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One Workbook?

Aug 13, 2014

I'm trying to set up an excel that will allow me to gather data from multiple workbooks and get it into one master worksheet. All of the worksheets are formatted the same way (See below)

Employee Last Name
Employee First Name
Employee Position
Employee Series Number
Departing City
Departing State
Attended Pilot Training?

We don't have the data yet so the idea is to paste this information into their perspective worksheets and then have them automatically populate into the master tab.

VBA Code To Copy Data And Reformat It Between Two Workbooks

Jun 16, 2014

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.

Loop To Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One

Nov 5, 2008

I'm trying to copy data from multiple spreadsheets into one summary spreadsheet. Each spreadsheet that I'm looking to copy data from is stored within a folder, named as a date, within a sharepoint site.

Each report is named as 'Report to PMT from Vauxhall', 'Report to PMT from Ford', 'Report to PMT from Fait' etc etc. and the format of each report is exactly the same.

From the attachments you will see that I'm trying to copy the following from the Report to PMT from Vauxhall to Summary Report:

Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell D11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell E11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell F11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Ford Cell D11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report

Report to PMT from Ford Cell F11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report
etc. etc.

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.

Compare Two Workbooks And Copy Unmatched Data

May 15, 2007

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.

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:

Is the source file protected somehow?

Add New Data Without Overwriting Old Data When Importing From Web?

Jan 30, 2013

I'm linking my excel document to a table on the web. The source only ever shows the last 50 orders but I would like to retain the old data when refreshing so I can see further than just the last 50 transactions. Is there any way for excel to insert rows for any new data? All the options when linking to the source seem to clear the old data.

The table looks something like this:

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.

Copy Data From All Workbooks In 1 Folder And Paste It In 1 Masterlist?

Nov 8, 2013

I would like to copy all data from all workbooks stored in one particular folder and paste them into a masterlist. The masterlist and all other workbooks in that folder have the same table header. How do I write VBA codes do the following tasks?

Options (1 and 2 are mutually exclusive):
1. VBA will go to that folder, open all workbooks one by one, if the data is filtered, then deactivate filtermode, and copy all the data but not the header, and paste it into masterlist and loop to the next workbook.

2. Create an inputbox in masterlist that allows user to key in Week Number. Then VBA will take the value, go to the folder and open all the workbooks one by one, apply filtering using the InputBox value, and copy the related data excluding the header into masterlist and loop to the next workbook. (*If the workbook in the folder is filtered, deactivate filter and then only filter using the InputBox value).

Compare Two Ranges In Different Workbooks And Copy Data To A 3rd Workbook

Jul 30, 2004

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 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 .

Sub Find_Matches()

Dim M, N As Range, x As Variant, y As Variant
Dim NewRange As Range

‘ To get the book1 location

MsgBox " Selec the Location of N File"

Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show arg1:=""

Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks To Single Workbook In Another Location Using VBA

Jun 10, 2014

I have a folder which contains multiple 'Customer' workbooks (example attachment 'Customer_001'). Each workbook has a filename unique to the customer (Customer_001, Customer_002, Customer_117 etc). The workbooks contain a single sheet with customer information and answers to questions. These 'Customer' workbooks are automatically saved into a folder once the customer completes a Userform and clicks 'save'. Potentially, there could be 100's of customers' workbooks saved in the folder, each with their own unique filename.

I also have a 'Master' sheet saved in a different folder (example attachment 'Master'). The 'Master' workbook has multiple sheets named 'Department 1' and 'Department 2'. The purpose of the master sheet is to consolidate all information from the individual customers' workbooks.

Specifically, I would like a command button on the 'Master' workbook to execute the following tasks...

1. Copy the data from range A3:F3 from each of the 'Customer' workbooks held in the folder.
2. Paste the data into the next blank row on the 'Department 1' sheet in the 'Master' workbook.

3. Copy the data from range A7:F7 from each of the 'Customer' workbooks held in the folder.
4. Paste the data into the next blank row on the 'Department 2' sheet in the 'Master' workbook.

5. Save the 'Master' workbook.
6. Delete all 'Customer' workbooks in the folder.
