Copy/Paste Macro (automate Copies To Another Workbook)
May 8, 2007
I'm looking for information on building a macro that will automate making copies of a spreadsheet into another workbook that contains very particular information. My master sheet has lists of my customers and the rep's that service them. What I need to do is have macro buttons for each rep. that will pull all the shops that they service and all information for these shops into another spreadsheet.
I have a spreadsheet tool that I use to calculate values on a set of variables, based on values on an initial set of other variables, for a large number of cases.
The calculations require a number of sequential steps to be repeated to get the calculated values for each case, and I am hoping there is a straightforward way to use a VB macro to automate this process.
Essentially, these steps are required to calculate values for a single case: 1. A data input sheet holds the values on the initial/input variables for each case. The first step involves copying the string of values for the case on the input variables into a sheet where the calculations are done.
2. As soon as the input string of values are pasted into the calculation sheet, the calculation formulas generate values for the case on the new, output variables.
3. The output variable string is then copied from the calculation sheet into a “results output” sheet. This copy/paste procedure needs to offset from the first row on the output sheet, so that the row number where the values on the output variables are stored correspond to the case ID. For example, case ID 10 is stored 10 rows down from the first row (i.e., on row 11). Case ID 100 is stored 100 rows down from the first row (i.e., on row 101).
As there are a very large number of cases, I need to have a “control panel” in place, where I can indicate the range of case IDs that will be processed. This takes the form of two cells – one indicates “From ID” and the other “To ID” (for example, “From ID” 1 “To ID” 100). The macro then uses this information to loop through the calculation steps outlined above for these case IDs.
I am trying to take a range ("a5:k23") of data in a sheet name Kelly and paste that data at range ("a1") in Sheet4 when the numbers change in cells "(K3") and "(J3") in the Kelly Sheet. When the numbers change, I want this to automatically paste and paste special. Since there are some conditional formats with color, I want to first Paste and then Paste Special the range of data.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("k3") = 1 And Range("j3") = 10 Then Range("A5:K23").Select Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet4").Select Range("A1").Select ActiveSheet.Paste Range("A1").Select Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _ :=False, Transpose:=False Sheets("KELLY ").Select Range("F2").Select
I'm looking to automate the process of repeating an excel worksheet (which is set up with various tables and formulas) for various countries.
I have a referenced list of countries set up in worksheet 1. So for example: in worksheet 2 I have a sheet set up for Albania - and I want to repeat this for another 100 countries. . Can I use the reference list of countries to auto-repeat worksheet 2 for worksheets 3 - 102 and auto-title the worksheet tabs? (E.g. Brazil, Canada, Chile..............)
I have a macro that copies rows from my DAILY OCCURENCE sheet that have a YES in them to my MANAGER SUMMARY SHEET and G1 is selected which has a hyperlink that opens a new email with the manager's email address and Subject pre-assigned.
I then have to manually go back to the newly generated summary sheet and select the cells and paste them into the email that was just opened.
Is there a way that the generated rows are already copied in memory and all i have to do is CTRL+V into the new email, or even better, the cells are pasted in the email automatically? So basically either the information being copied over stays in memory, or after it is copied into the summary sheet it is copied again. I just dont know how to copy unpredictable ranges generated by macros.
The code that generates my summary sheet for my manager is below.
I am coping form "SAC May'14 workfile" sheets "Top 20 FM" & "FM Major Inc&Dec" to "SAC Register Analysi Template" sheet "Top 20 FM" work perfectly but if i copy from e.g "SAC Feb'14 workfile, March'14 workfile" etc..
I have a master workbook and a template workbook. The template workbook when run generates a new workbook with the current date as the file name. Within the newly generated workbook, the template, had created 5 worksheets. On each worksheet, there is a single cell that contains the total from that particular worksheet.
What I need is a macro that will grab these totals, one from each of the 5 worksheets from the newly generated workbook done by the template, and pasted it in the master workbook under the 5 columns in a worksheet: 0-20, 21-40,41-60,61-80,81-100. However, the next time the macro is run, it will not over write the previous data but move to the next blank row and paste the totals there.
It takes an specific word from a certain number of files that you can choose from an add file window. Then when you choose those files the macro starts to run every file and look for an specific word, in this case is "ROFO March 2013".
When it finds it, The macro creates a new workbook( You create the name of that workbook y the first place of the macro, when you choose the files that you want to look for that word).
So, When the macro finds the word ROFO March 2013, it copys all the columns that has that name, and keeps looking until the file ends.
And paste all that info in the new file, A consolidate File.
I have change all the names of variables of the macro so you can understand it.
Code: Sub copy_data(ByVal Origin_File_route As String, ByVal destiny file As String) Dim Origin_File As String, RsBusq As Range, ROFO As String Dim Rango As Range, Fila As Long, lastrow as Long origin_file = Dir(origin_file_route)
Consider two instances of Excel - one with a workbook containing a chart and some VBA code, the other containing a blank workbook. When I paste a chart from the first instance of Excel to the other, all the VBA code from the original workbook is also pasted into a new third hidden workbook in the second instance of Excel! If that weren't weird enough ON WINDOWS XP (but not Windows 2000) if the VBA code included WorkbookOpen or AutoOpen this code is executed in the second instance of Excel, which of course fails if it references sheets that only existed in the workbook open in the first instance of Excel! This is the first time I've seen the same version of Excel do different things on different versions of Windows! Example attached - What's going on!? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;...note: this does not happen when pasting charts between workbooks open in the SAME instance of Excel
My problem is as such; each month I receive an application for payment. This will contain around 20-30 worksheets. However I only need to interrogate around 3-4 specific ones. The worksheets I require contain data describing the plant/equipment a company has purchased, or materials purchased over a period of time. Each month the worksheets are updated with the previous months data appended to the bottom. I am required to established if the equipments have been purchased at the correct rate.
The worksheets are all protected thus in order to interrogate them I am required to copy an paste their contents into a new work book in order to format them and insert my new "assessment" columns. I need to keep the work sheets separate in the new work book as they have different layouts however they have the same layout and work sheet names each month.
I needs a macro which would allow me to open up a new book them copy the specific worksheets from a specific file into the new work book. I then have a separate macro which re-formats them into the layout I require.
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.
I have a macro code which gets the file list from a folder i specify and puts it in to an excel sheet as a column. I have then made a drop down list from this so the user can select the file they want.
From this file i wish to copy the data on a sheet that i specify. For example the sheet "dump" from file FR7_19.11.2009.xls (which will be a closed workbook) and paste its content in to the sheet "dump" in Summary.xls
I have a macro which opens up the closed workbook FR7_19.11.2009.xls and copies the sheet "dump" and then creates a new sheet of the same name and content in my current workbook (Summary.xls). However when i wish to select a different file to load in to Summary.xls "dump" the formulas i have been calculating information from this sheet all come up with #!Ref errors. I know this is because the macro i use deletes the old dump sheet before re adding a new one containing new data.
I am therefore looking for a macro which will simply just copy and paste the data from any file i select in to a sheet named "dump" as the data is always set out the same in every file but the values are different. I assume this will then mean that any formulas i use relating to this "dump" sheet in Summary.xls will work because the sheet is no longer being deleted and re-added the data within it has just simply been copied over.
I have 5 Excel files. The first one is Main, and the other 4 are subfiles, namely A1, A2, A3 & A4. I have a need to open Main, then click a button to start a Macro (in Main) which will do the following, sequentially:
1. open A1 2. run a Macro in A1 3. close and save A1. 4. open A2 5. run a Macro in A2 ... 12 close and save A4.
The files A1..A4 are a file server and being shared. If they're being used by another user, it cannot be saved - so I would have to skip it and continue with the next A. It would be great if start Excel, open Main, and run the Macro in Main fully automatically.
I have an Excel file which has a macro that sucks in data from a number of separate files (two Excel, a varying number of csv). The macro grabs all the individual files and loads them into one of three worksheets with some formatting, sorting, and structuring on the way. All good so far.
I then need to take two of the worksheets and copy them to a new Workbook which I can send out to some users. So I use the Workbooks.Add method, and use the Selection.Copy on just the data (UsedRange.Rows/Columns.Count to ensure it is only the data) and Selection.PasteSpecial with the xlPasteColumnWidths, xlPasteValues, and xlPasteFormats options to copy the data over. None of the data is filtered. Just straight data.
I would expect the newly added workbook to be smaller than the one with the macros because the one with the macros has two extra sheets that I don't transfer, and the sheets I do transfer are identical.
And that's where it gets weird. The file with the macros and more data is 18.7Mb, but the new one with only two sheets is 24.8Mb. One is .xlsm and the other is .xlsx (because it has no macros).
I've tried opening the new workbook and saving as .xlsm (no material difference to the size) and as .xls (it got even bigger). I've opened the new workbook, gone to the end of the data and deleted all the blank rows and columns, but no effect (because the rows are already empty).
Why would the file with less in it be so much bigger (or bigger at all)?
I also have a workbook called DecMonthlyTotal in the same folder with the same named worksheets.
I am looking for a macro to be placed in the DecMonthlyTotal that will pull the data from the Cashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name Cashable12-13, it will also pull the data from the NonCashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name NonCashable12-13
Both the Cashable12-13 and the NonCashable12-13 have Columns A - G The row that the macro should start the copying from is Row 3 for each of the workbooks; however I don't have an end row for the workbooks as this will vary.
I have several worksheets( Named 1, 2, 3,4,5) in a book containing data , the amount of rows for every sheet is variable depending on the job. I would like a macro that copies the data from the first of the worksheets and paste it in a blank one(lets call it Results), then copy the data from the worksheet two immediately below and do the same with data contained in worksheets 3,4,5.
I've been doing various searches for past few hours and can't seem to find out if one its even possible, the closet I've found on here is to copy row to another workbook.
My question is I have one excel book called level1.xls and another excel book level2.xls, now in level1.xls I have a row of fields filled in and in level2.xls I have a blank form which for example I would like to try programme in VBA from the level2.xls file to click a button and open automatically level1.xls then grab field "A2" value from level1.xls and place it in level2.xls field "L4" then continue using level1.xls "B2" to level2.xls in field "C3" and then continue down when I add more values A3, A4 so on in level1.xls to the same field in level2.xls L4.

I would like to implement specific cell ranges from two specific worksheets each within 33 workbooks (which all have several tabs) into a summary page in a separate workbook.
The cell ranges are going across my spreadsheet in rows and I would like for them to transpose into a columns depending on the data which I have separated by catergory on the summary page. They are all on the same location in each workbook which is separated by country. The cell ranges are E26:P37 and I would like to transpose them and have them put below eachother without overwriting for my format on the summary page, how I can put this together in a macro?
On the "Complete Backlog" tab of my workbook, I want users to enter in the requested information based on the column header. Then I would like a Macro attached to a button that says "Refresh" that the user would click after they have entered in all of the information. This macro should look in Column M (WIP Status) and if any of the cells say "Close", it should Cut the entire row from the spreadsheet(Ex. A2:M2) and Paste it into the speadsheet titled "Closed Jobs".
This is so that as jobs are closed/finished, they are removed and stored on a separate sheet. The items would have to be pasted so that it pastes into the next available row - not just on top of each other.
I also need another macro that i can put into a button that doesn't "delete" a row from the sheet, but just copies over to another sheet - so that there are two instances in the workbook.
If would look something like: If a cell in "Column G / Director" of the "Complete Backlog" speadsheet is equal to "Snodgress" then copy columns A-L of the same row to the spreadsheet titled "Snodgress" - of course skipping down the rows to the next blank row.
.....is equal to "Herr" copy row to "Herr" spreadsheet. ....is equal to "McCormick" copy row to "McCormick" spreadsheet. and so on.
Is it possible to set up 2 tables whereby if you change a field in 1 table it automatically cuts and pastes a row of info in to another table. Or possibly by clicking a macro hot button? E.g. An entry in 1 table is no longer 'live' so moves to the 'archived' table when a field is changed.
I have an excel workbook that serves as a master workbook. I have to create 30 copies of this workbook, 1 for each site. Each workbook will have small differences in the data held. This is because I will refresh the sheet before saving it. There is a dropdown list on the 1st tab of the workbook that contains the names of the sites. The sequense, I suppose would be like: select the next name on the dropdown list"calculate" the spreadsheet to enable the refreshsome sort of "save-as" with the name from the dropdown list forming the name of the file. The Master file must be kept intact.select the next name from the dropdown listcalculate the sheet ........and so on I have a few other things I will add to the script like Protect Sheet etc.
I have had some problems closing down a workbook that I have. During a save and close.
A duplicate file appears and causes considerable time delay...sometimes even causes a windows crash. I can't find the source of the problem, but I have noticed that in the Windows Task Manager, the file is there as well, yet not visible on the screen.
