Copy Data From Open File To Current Active Workbook
May 2, 2008
I want to create a standard macro that will copy values from a Master workbook to the current, active workbook I have open. The problem I have run into is when I record a macro it also records the name of the active workbook I'm copying data into and I would like it so when I bring up a workbook I just run the macro and it copies the values in. I'll be doing 8 different macros that each copy different values from the Master spreadsheet
I compared data between excel worksheets all the time, well recently my computer was upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and since then I have not been able to figure out how to have an Excel file to open in the Excel window selected(or last active window) when I have more than one workbook open. Is there a way to do this?
I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.
However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:
Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.
Heres the code that I have got.
Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)
I'd like to know if it is possible to run a macro in a workbook that will open another workbook (of the users choice) extract data from it, such as columns from its sheets then paste that data into the workbook the macro is running from. The file to be opened will change, so i've found some code that enables the user to select the file to open then open it.
Dim strFile As String strFile = Application. GetOpenFilename If strFile <> "False" Then Workbooks.Open strFile
This brings up the standard windows choose file to open box, then opens the selected file. Am I correct in thinking that the Dim here will store the file name I select in the open file box? If so, I'd like to know how to select the workbook using the dim so I can manipulate it from the workbook I'm running the macro in. Incidentally, once the the data has been copied, I'd like the workbook opened with the macro to be closed.
I open 2 files : A & B. Once I finish copying data from B into A. I close B and open C and so on. That means I always work with file A (active)
File B, C or D and so on has 3 worksheets with identical names. The filename of B, C and so on also has some common word
I'd like to copy data into sheet1 of file A, always same range : B2:B100 , afterwards I would copy-paste each result from sheet1 to another sheet of file A and delete the data in sheet1. So sheet1 of file A is always active and show the result each time the macro was run as follows.
Cell b2 of file A = cell c1 of sheet 1 of file B Cell b3 of file A = cell d1 sheet 1 of file B + cell e1 of sheet 2 of file B
I'm trying to figure out a way to find a specific sheet in a workbook that does not contain the macro. Within the macro I have a cell which holds the name of the specific sheet I would like to find but I can't get it to work for some reason...
'Dim officen As Integer 'Dim thiswb As Workbook
officen = Range("A2").Value Set thiswb = ActiveWorkbook ' Open the Active Info file Workbooks.Open "C:My DcoumentsActive 20080616.xls", , , , "xxxxxx" ' Dim sourcewb As Workbook Set sourcewb = Workbooks.Open"Active 20080616.xls"
I have a cell that is pulling data from a separate file, no problem there. However, I want the name of one of the folders within that path to change monthly (eg. by monthly name). How can I make a file path incorporate a cell link within a filepath (eg. instead of it saying 'Aug 06' I want it to refer to cell A1 which reads 'Aug 06').
I created a new workbook that contains a list of additional design requirements than our old checklist. These requirements are answered by placing a 1, 0 or .5 in the cell next to the requirement (1 = yes, 0 = no and .5 for half credit). I can't simply go to the old workbook/worksheet and copy the results into the new workbook/worksheet as the rows of requirements don't match up since some requirmements have been deleted and new ones added between the old and new checklists. I created a command button in the new checklist and what I want it to do is: - open a dialog box that lets me select the old checklist file (these are all excel files, but with different names). - go the the proper worksheet in the old file (DFT Checklist) and copy a column of results from the old checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet) and paste them into the proper cells of the new checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet). - The macro would know (i'll have to tell it) which requirements and cells are still valid answers between the old checklist and the new one. It would disregard requirements that are no longer in the new checklist. - Once complete, it would close the old checklist without saving.
I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.
I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.
I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need
A prompt to open workbook Copy range (c8,d69) Close work sheet Paste special .value (c8,D69)
I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.
I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.
I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.
Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.
Code: Sub Test() Dim Rng As Range Dim wb As Workbook Set Rng = Range("A1:A2") Set wb = Workbooks.Add With wb Rng.Copy
I'm a novice at Excel trying to create some forms for work. My goal is to have a working workbook that holds all my values from multiple jobs that gets updated daily with additional worksheets that gets sent to me. I'd like to be able to hit a macro in my workbook that allows me to select a file that has been emailed to me and import their values into mine. For example:
While using my active workbook I want to select a file. Then take cells A1:A15 from selected file and paste to cells F1:F15 in my active workbook.
I have the following Macro that I run assigned to a Button.
Sub AskAndDo() If MsgBox("Have you Finished collecting data ?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion) = vbNo Then Exit Sub Else If MsgBox("Have you Printed the Reports ?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion) = vbNo Then Exit Sub Else ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="\gamingntcompanyFLOAT MASTERFloat_Sheet_" & Format(Date, "_YY_MM_DD") End If End If Application.Quit End Sub.......
I have a userform in "text1.xls" workbook when I click on commandButton it validates Staff name and Staff number stored in sheet1 of "test1.xls" workbook and opens test2.xls file which is in different folder. Problem is how do I code to close or unload "test1.xls" after opening test2.xls
Private Sub goButton_Click()
F$ = "D: estFiles est2.xls" ' can I use Path so I don't need to type the full directory path
I have a VBA-coded macro in an Excel workbook that is to open another existing workbook -- a .xls file, not .csv -- copy data from it, paste that into the original workbook where the macro resides, then close the source workbook.
If I use the debugger to step through the macro -- putting a breakpoint at its first executable line, run the macro, then F8 step through it, it works fine. (With delays at the open, close statements.) Free running, it doesn't. I suspect it's a timing issue, that the macro runs full tilt even though the new workbook isn't yet open -- but I don't know how to remedy that.
Here is the situation and the simplified code (the actual macro does a lot more, of course):
Main workbook: Two sheets, "Parameters" that has the fully-qualified filename for the desired source .xls in A1; and "Data", into which I want to paste data from that source.
Source workbook: Single sheet, "Sheet1"
Macro code. For simplicity, it is trying to copy/paste all of the source worksheet's content:
Sub Go() ' ' Go Macro ' Test of getting data from another spreadsheet ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+G ' Dim SourceFile As String Dim HomeBook As String Dim OtherBook As String Sheets("Parameters").Select SourceFile = Range("A1").Value HomeBook = ActiveWorkbook.Name
right after the open, hoping that might cause a dwell for the open to complete.
When I step through it, the Locals view has all the parameters, getting set properly. If I try to simply run it, it stalls at the opened source workbook, the Locals view is empty, no data has been transferred into the initiating workbook.
If I place the breakpoint after the open, it is not reached. (I have the VBA open.) Hitting F8 then yields a VB error window, "Compile Error" "Expected: To"
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.
EXAMPLE: Complete Sheet called "Day1". When day1 is complete you click on button and it then copies itself and creates and renames new sheet to "Day2", then when "Day2" is complete you click on button and it then copies itself and creates and renames new sheet to "Day3", and so on and so forth to "Day30".
I have an Excel Worksheet (let's call it "AA.xlsm") which uses VBA code to loop through column A, update column B with some results/values, and then (for each value in column A) SaveAs the worksheet into a different filename/path as a ".csv" type file.
My line of code for the SaveAs is as follows: Workbooks("AA.xlsm").SaveAs LEpath & CurrFldr, FileFormat:=xlCSV
My problem is that my original worksheet, AA.xlsm, gets closed whereas I need it to stay open/active after each SaveAs iteration.
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 have 2 workbooks. 1 is where data is entered called wksPB, the other is like a database workbook. The wksPB has data to be feed from column B to F and there is a dropdown.
what im looking to do is, if the combobox value is selected as Decline then it should display a messagebox that reference value in cell B is denied. if combobox value is Agreed then the macro should search the database workbook for the text entered in column b of wksPB and then copy data of C:E of wksPB to H:J of database sheet where that text is found and also the approver name in wksPB C24 to the approver cell of where that text was found. I've reached till finding the text but what I get my head twiting on is how to copy the text from wksPB column B:F to database sheet column H:K. Im attaching the sample workbooks and the code where ive reached till.
