Copy Named Range From Another Workbook

Dec 27, 2009

In my project I have two workbooks. I am working on getting one to pull data from another depending on which employee is selected from a drop down list.

TestLOG.xls contains a worksheet for each employee, with named sections within for various training the employee has, and down each row has information on the date this was received, initial, recurrent, etc. It is only this single worksheet for each employee that any data entry occurs, which makes things a lot more organized and efficient.
TestFORMS.xls is the workbook accessed by the records department which has different worksheets depending on what data is to be presented. When an employees name is selected, I need the form to pull the specific data from another workbook, and post it on the current worksheet. This get repeated a couple times to fill the adjacent columns of data. I can't just select the whole table from the other workbook because in this current worksheet for example, only specific columns are pulled from the other workbook.

To better explain the flow...
Current workbook is TestFORMS.xls
Current sheet is Test
Closed workbook is TestLOG.xls

In TestFORMS, sheet Test, when named cell Employee is selected with a value...
Then open TestLOG in the background and open sheet of same name as Employee, and cope range ACtype.
Back in TestFORMS, sheet Test, paste the ACtype data in the range named Type.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Ename As String
Ename = Range("Employee").Value
If IsEmpty(Ename) Then Exit Sub
Range("Type").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
End Sub

Within the same sub, I would add additional lines of code to copy and paste the other ranges needed on the current worksheet.
My current hangup is that I get an error at Range("ACtype") as that is not the proper way to call the range.
There's more work to be done with the macro yet, like having it pull the data with TestLOG closed, which I believe is done by listing the path to filename.
Then I need to maintain cell formatting on the new table when the data is posted to it.
Hopefully the final task is to get this working so that when a new employee is selected in TestFORMS, the previous employees data is cut and the new posted, as the worksheet is just printed out for each employee and put on hardfile.

Named Range: Create Copy From Another Workbook

May 28, 2008

I have a named range within a sheet. It was pulled across when i performed a move/copy - create copy from another workbook. The name contains characters that cannot be displayed or recognised and so they are displayed as square
symbols. This causes me an issue as i cannot delete the name. Even if i paste the list names, i cannot copy/paste the name as the characters are not recognised. I also tried using a macro to delete all names, which did delete all names, with the exception of this one.
The VB code used was :

Sub Del_Names()

Dim myname As Name

For Each myname In ActiveWorkbook.Names


Next myname

End Sub

Open Workbook Where Named Cell Contain Name & Path, Copy Range And Paste Values

May 19, 2009

I am successfully opening a .csv file using a variable value stored in a named range in my Main file (the variable includes the directory and path).
I copy data from the .csv file to the Main file then I need to close the .csv file without saving but I want to do that by using the


command where "xxxx" is the namedrange in my Main file which stores the .csv filename (without the directory and path prefix).

I can use the


command but if I have another workbook open, this one closes instead of the .csv file I opened from the macro.

I realise this is probably very basic and I've searched the forums but can't find any identical postings.

Copy/Paste Cell To Named Range Named In Adjacent Cell

Sep 4, 2007

I have read post re this question but have not been able to answer my problem. I get the error message 'Application defined or object defined error' when running the code below. I should indicate the range counter currently indicated about 6,200 rows that this code will work on and the individual range names in the list of 6,200 rows are spread over at least 20 worksheets.

The code appears to be running but after some time it stops on the line of code 'Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)'.

Sub PopulateWithImportData()
Dim counter As Integer
counter = Sheets("Imported Data").Range("Counter")

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Worksheets("imported data").Select

i = 1
Do Until i = counter
Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)
i = i + 1

Copy Sheets From Another Workbook Without Named Ranges

Nov 16, 2009

I have VBA code that copies over several sheets from a workbook, but I'd rather not have all the named ranges come through. Whenever I run the macro it gives me this notice: "A formula or sheet you want to move or copy contains the name 'rngRegion2', which already exists on the destination worksheet..." The destination sheet doesn't originally have this range already, it runs into problems because the sheets I'm copying have rngRegion2 defined on different sheets. I'd like to try and avoid this problem all together by not copying named ranges if possible.

If thats not a viable option, is there code that I can use to tell it to automatically select "Yes - To use the name as defined in the destination sheet" as opposed to prompting the user to select yes/no?

Find Matched Value In A Range For Named Cell Then Copy Range Cells Below

Aug 6, 2013

I need method, using a button, that looks at a cell--say EO2, for example--, looks back on a master worksheet at a specified row and range for a match, then looks at the information from a specified range below the matching cell (The information in this column will either be blank or have an "X" in the cell), and then those rows that do not have an "X" will be hidden in the corresponding rows in the working worksheet. Therefore, if at any time the value in "EO2" ever changes, then it will automatically find a new match and repopulate and hide information as before. About 130 columns will have its own button so that a "query" can be made that depends on the information in a particular cell in that column.

The master worksheet now has matrix of 287 rows and 58 columns. Each row is for an operating procedure and each column shows a job code. An "X" in a coordinate cell for a column/row shows whether that job code is responsible for knowing that operating procedure. So, on the working sheet, an employee's primary job code is given underneath his or her name. When the button is pushed, all the operating procedures not required for a given person will be hidden and only the required ones will remain visible--grouped, if you will. Qualification dates will be easier to see now that the information is consolidated. Whenever someone transfers to a new position, a new code will be inputed on the working sheet. When the button is pushed, a new grouping will result. Any operating instructions that overlap will still have qualification dates, so that information will not need to be transcribed.

Calling Named Range From External Workbook

Jun 12, 2009

I want to copy a named range from an external workbook. Currently I am using some VBA copied from a recorded macro that first opend the 2nd workbook and then selects the named range, changes back to the original workbook and drops the copied range into the active workbook.

I would like to find a way to get around having to open the reference workbook, and instead simply point to the proper workbook name and named range.

Access/Reference Named Range In Another Workbook

Oct 5, 2006

I have two workbooks wkA and wkB. I have a named range in wkB called BName.. can someone tell me whether it is possible to set a range variable (say, raA) from wkA to this named range in wkB. I have tried something to the effect of set raA = wkB.range("BName") but this doesn't work.. I've also tried set raA = [].range("BName") to no avail. I'm wondering whether named ranges can actually be read from other workbooks.

Excel 2013 :: Named Formula Scoped To Workbook Are Duplicated On Worksheet Copy?

Jan 27, 2014

I'm using some workbook-scoped named formulas to define some dynamic ranges which will be referred to by numerous worksheets. The named ranges are defined like:

NAME: gTable_costDetailsEquipment
REFERS TO: =globalParameters!$B$5:INDEX(globalParameters!$B$5:$C$1048576,1+countAdjacentNonBlank

From either of the tabs "Reports" or "DOR_Template" the user can press the large "+" icon to add a report (which copies the template or the last report to a new sheet).

When this Sheet copy takes place, excel is repeating my named formulas - this time it's making LOCAL versions scoped to the newly made worksheet.

I've used this copy sheet trick before and have never had excel create new, locally scoped, named formula for each workbook level name.

I also just recently started using excel 2013, is this a problem with the new version? I've just never seen this problem, usually workbook-level names are NOT duplicated on sheet copy.

Simple Copy Of Named Range To Another Sheet?

Feb 11, 2013

I have a named range on one sheet, and I want to show this as a reference on other sheets. I thought this would be simple, but maybe it's just not the way named ranges are used.

Attached is a sample spreadsheet. First tab shows the table defined; in practice it would be much larger. Second tab shows how I want it to appear. I see that I can do this by copying each cell reference. But what would be nice is to simply say "Put the named range block of cells right here."

Copy Data Over Based On Reference And Named Range?

Jul 22, 2014

I got a very technical sheet which needs your experience to work.

open the attached file below to see the workbook.

It has 3 different sheets. "RESULT", "INPUT" and "SWITCH"

On "RESULT" Cell (O11) is where the person would put a Reference.

This reference is then checked on the "INPUT" sheet column A.

From the first cell it appears in Column A, until the last cell it appears in Column A should be the Row Range (Blanks included).

But I want that range (Column A to G) to be copied to "Switch" sheet. Pasted in Cell A1 downwards.

In the "SWITCH" sheet I have already given all the GREEN Cell formated areas a name - INFO.

I want all the data in INFO to be inserted into "RESULT" sheet between row 18 and 19.

I have colour coded most of the areas for you.. And added a button from which the Macro / VBA should run when clicked.

Copy Named Range Chosen From Drop-Down & Paste To Last Row

Feb 21, 2009

I am a trainee dermatologist. We undertake allergy patch tests. There is a long list of different patch tests which are selected based on the patients history. I have put each of the types of patch testing on a master sheet. What I would like to be able to do is to have a control button next to each set, and when clicked would add that particular set to a "new patient" worksheet tab. And with every set having its own button, more than one set could be added to a new sheet. In the new patient worksheet id like the sets added with a single row gap between them.

I had tried, and managed to get a single series to work, but then it wouldnt allow me to add the next set, saying that sheet already exists. Ideally finally, id like there to be some way, or message to make sure after printing the new patient worksheet gets deleted.
I hope that all makes sense ! Even if I had a code for a single button that added to a master sheet at the next available row +1 I think I could manipulate the code to suit.

Copy Named Range Data To Worksheet Based On Dropdown Or Combobox

Feb 10, 2013

I have a worksheet called "Lookup" with several dynamic named ranges (each is 1 column wide) including facility, department, shift, etc. On a summary worksheet in the same workbook I want users to use a dropdown or combo box (don't care what type) in cell B2 to select a facility and then based on their selection, copy the department named range data and paste it into the summary sheet beginning in cell A5 and paste the shift named range data into the summary sheet beginning in cell B5.

Example: user selects "AR Plant" from the dropdown or combo box and the data from the "AR_Rpt" named range is pasted into cell A5 and the "AR_Shift" named range is pasted into cell B5.

Copy A Range Of Cells In Another Workbook Opened In A Separate Instance Of Workbook

Feb 11, 2010

I m not able to use the standard Excel Paste Special function when I copied a range of cells in another Excel workbook opened in a separate instance of Excel. Instead, Paste Special thinks that I have copied some non-Excel objects and gave me the Paste As options. This is not the case if I open both workbook within the same instance of Excel. Could you share with us if there is a trick to trigger the normal Paste Special options in such situations (without having to invoke Macro procedures)?

Making Named Range The Last Active Value Used Within Another Named Range?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to make my named ranges remember the values of the last active cells used within another named range. The purpose of this is to make my charts dynamically change dependant on two criteria selected. My spreadsheet currently updates itself as and when I change the active cell within a single named range, dynamically changing the chart data by using Lookup based on the active cells value. However I want to get away from having several charts showing, I would like to have a single chart which dynamically changes based on a second selection. So the first selection is for a department (Facility) which changes the chart data relevant to that department, the second selection is to dynamically change the chart shown for the pre selected department.


Using the following code when updating just one criteria with several charts

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Not Application.Intersect(ActiveCell, [MeasureType]) Is Nothing Then
[valMeasurePicked] = ActiveCell.Value [code].....

which works fine but I'm not sure how to add a second selection criteria because my code uses Activecell. I thought that the VBA needed to set the last used value of a range as a variable and therefore allow the second criteria to be selected but am not sure how to put it into practice.
