Copy Multiple Columns From Multiple Excel Files & Paste Into 1 Workbook
Nov 7, 2009
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 have one master excel file (masterexcel.xlsx) and 100 small excel files. The small excel files are saved as M30.xlsx, M31.xlsx, M32.xlsx, M33.xlsx, M34.xlsx....
I want to open the M30 file, copy a certain section and paste it into the master excel file, close the M30 file whilst saving the new information in a file called recording. Then open the next file which is M31, copy a certain section and paste it into the master excel file, close the M31 file and then open m32 and so on....
How do I create a loop for the files so it automatically opens the files in the order M30, M31, M32.......and performs the aforementioned actions.
I have attempted the following for m30 but i need to make it a loop for m31, m32, m33, m34, 35 and so on....
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 need to find if there are matching addresses in 2 different excel files. If the same address appears in both files, I would like the new worksheet to return the address along with the sale price from the 1 file and the rental amount from the other file.
I have tried using vlookup but the problem is the exported data file contains the street number in one column and the street name on another column. I have attached a truncated example of both the rental data and the residential sales data.
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 looking for either formula which will allow me to copy data from a workbook with multiple named sheets into a workbook with a single named sheet. For instance workbook 1 has sheets named bob, sue, and tom and there is a workbook 2 which only has sheet bob. I want to copy the range fo data from sheet bob in workbook1 to workbook 2 as long as workbook 2 has sheet bob.
I have a macro that takes info/data from multiple sheets in the Basin workbook and summarizes it into the Median Database workbook. I need to copy the values in range B5:EM5 in every sheet (each sheet name is site #) in the Basin workbook and paste that range into the median database workbook row with the corresponding site.
Here is what I have so far
VB: Sub Median_Database() 'This Macro takes the median from each station tab in the current Basin workbook 'And inserts it into the Median Database workbook
how to grab the sheet name and insert it in the median database. The problem is the copy/paste of the range in each sheet. The macro locks up every time.
how to loop through workbooks in a certain directory and copy the rows in sheet1 where column B contains numbers greater than zero, and then pasting them into a new master workbook. The sheets will be named differently each week but will always be in the same directory.
For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.
I have two worksbooks both with a big load of (filled)columns, now i want to copy the columns from the first workbook between the columns of the second workbook, the only thing is that in the first workbook the columns are nicely put together, i want to copy them in the second workbook but here they must me placed 7 columns apart from eachother. This is because the other columns are already filled with other data I need. Is there some way to do this.
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’ve got a folder on drive C named “Customer Sheets”. In this folder at any time there could be over 500 individual customer sheets. i also have a "Summary Workbook" on drive C
What I need is a macro in my "Summary Workbook" that copies cells (“B3, B6, B12, B13, G5, G6”) form every customer sheet in my “Customers Sheets” folder and paste it into my “Summary Workbook” onto sheet2, every customer in a new row.
The “Summary Workbook” should run this macro every time it is opened or on my command so that the database is continually refreshed when a new customer sheet is made.
I have a workbook with many sheets labelled as mmm-yyyy. The constant columns in all the sheets are C,E,R,T, and U.
Is it possible to have a macro do the following: Add a sheet called Summary at the end of the workbook. From the last sheet of mmm-yyyy, copy columns C, E, and R to the Summary sheet. Copy columns T and U from all the other mmm-yyyy sheets to the Summary sheet. All the cells need to be centered.
for my school project, I am right now doing time tracking for all of my activities throughout the day with excel. Here is basically what I am doing: For everything I do, I record and put in start time and end time for the activity.(I use simple formula to subtract these twos) If my day goes on like study, break, study, meal, study, break and each activity takes one hour for each, I have total of 3 hours studying, 2 hours taking break and one hour for meal. I am using pivot table to show all totals for each activity.
Pivot table is working best as far as my knowledge goes as I can choose and look up total of multiple activity combined. The problem here is I am making one sheet per a day and I need to continue this for three months. (So that seems like 90 worksheet). What I was thinking is I make Sheet 1 as master sheet. Then, copy and paste the entire sheet for 90 sheets assuming all formulas including pivot table go along with them. then, when I put in new data to other sheet,magic happens and values in pivot tables will change relatively after refresh. You might be probably laughing hard at me right now. I know..I tried it for like 3 sheets. Simple formula to subtract endtime and start time still work accordingly with new data. But, Pivotal table is playing dead at all.
I researched and found that that might be problem with reference and absolute cell reference thingy. ( to make pivotal table work for different worksheet). All the cells used ( including column and row ) will be entirely the same for all worksheets. The only difference aka problem is different sheet. I want to use sheet 1 as a template and copy it down to next 90 sheets taking all contents except data. Is there anyway I can copy and paste the whole template to another 90 sheets while making pivot table work and calculate and update itself according to relative data from each own worksheet? I use excel 2007 btw
I've got several worksheets that all have the exact same layout that a user will enter unique information in to each worksheet. Then I've got a final worksheet that I want to have a button that the user can click and when they do, it will look to each worksheet and do the exact same process for each worksheet as follows:
It first looks to see if the worksheet is visible. If it is, I want it to copy the range A5 to K5 down until it gets to the last non-blank cell in column C. The first non blank cell that will be referenced will be C7. Then I want it to paste this information into the range A5:K5 on the final sheet named Sheet8 with the same values and keep cell formatting such as width and height, font. If the worksheet is not visible, it skips the sheet.
I want it to do this for each visible worksheet, placing the next visible worksheet info under the previous visible worksheet info. My current code as shown doesn't do that. It requires that something be inSheet8 A6 before it will even paste, then it pastes the info from A5:K5 but it doesn't do just the values nor does it keep the formatting. What I mean about not doing just the values is some of the info that needs to be copied comes from a drop down they can choose from and it copies the actual drop down menu. Also, it seems to copy all of the ranges from each sheet and paste it into just A5:K5 on Sheet8 and overwrites each other instead of pasting Sheet2 just below the information from Sheet1. So the only information shown after the entire process is completed is the information from the last visible sheet.
If Worksheets("Sheet1").Visible = True Then Sheets("Sheet1").Range(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A5:K5"), Sheets("Sheet1").Range("C7").End(xlDown)).Copy Sheets("Sheet8").Range("A5").End(xlDown) End If
how I can loop through folders to select files starting with a certain word and copy all of them to a different folder and rename them. The folder structure is given below
Company 1(parent folder) North South East(sub folder) West(sub folder) Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec
In the above structure, the files are present inside each folders Jan, feb...Dec under the regions North, South East n west. note that I have to select files starting with "Sales" and copy them into a new folder(say results) and rename copied files as Sales1.xls, Sales2.xls etc. (Files are not present in the folder company1, north, south, east and east.)
1. Copy data from original file (I do not want to do anything in the original file) into the spreadsheet (Target worksheet)where the code should run. 2. In sheet 1 of Target Worksheet, there are 2 columns which I need to set criterias on namely Column D and Column L 3. In Column D, I want to specify 3 criterias namely A, B and C 4. In Column L, I want to specify 5 criterias namely London, Frankfurt, New York, Sydney and Tokyo 5. If Criterias in 3 and 4 are met, copy all rows into Sheet 2 of Target Worksheet
I need to back up files, which may be excel or MSword, by copying them from different directories, say C: to the backup directory, say X:. any vba to backup the files? I expect the vba can copy all file listed in column A.
E.g. C: est1File1.xls or C: est2File2.doc, and then pasted to the directory in column B. e.g. X:BackupFolder1 or X:BackupFolder2.
I am using MS Office 2010. I want to count---on multiple sheets---the number of times that a given cell is greater than another cell if and only if a third cell is equal to a given value. I want to do this for 4 sets of data on each sheet. I thought I had it figured out with this formula---
but it returns a value of zero each time. Clearly there is an error in the formula.
Here is some background: -- $H$1:$H$43 is a block of cells that has the names of the sheets in the workbook -- E1 and F1, G1 and H1, I1 and J1, K1 and L1 are the four groups of cells that I am comparing. In the entire workbook, I want to add 1 (counting function) only when: R1=2 AND E1>F1 or S1=2 AND G1>H1 or T1=2 AND I1>J1 U1=2 and K1>L1 on each appropriate sheet in the workbook.
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 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.
