# Copy Ranges Between Open Workbooks

May 14, 2008

I have several ranges (i.e. c11:c22, and d11:d22, etc) in an excel spreadsheet that, when the command button is selected, will copy these values into another already established workbook ("aggregator.xls").

Thus, the command button would have to pick each of these ranges and copy them into the aggregator workbook, (i.e. c11:c22 in the first workbook would be copied into b3:b14 in the aggregator workbook; d11:d22 would be copied into b18:b29 in the aggregator workbook, etc.)

In addition, I need it set up so that when the command button is selected to copy this data, that it will look in the aggregator workbook for the next available column for the section that the data will be copied to so that it doesn't write over the previous data.

## Match & Copy Ranges Across Workbooks

Jan 15, 2010

I have 2 workbooks formatted the same way.

Using VBA, I want to search through book1 Col A which has a list of Code # s.
If a Code # is in Book 2 Col A, find a match on Book 1 Col A.

After finding a match, compare the range in Book 2 ( Which is the 4 cells immediately to the right ) to the match with the corresponding range in Book 1.

If the range contents are not the same, copy the range from Book2 to Book1 and replace the range in Book1.
If there is NO Match of the Code # in Col A, then Copy the entire row to Book1 and append it to the end of the current Book1 used range.

A MsgBox to show how many changes and additions at the end.

## Copy Ranges From Multilple Workbooks

Nov 18, 2006

I'm facing a problem in copying the same ranges from 23 workbooks in the same folder. My code can only work for one workbook.

Dim r As Integer
r = 0
Do
Workbooks("July-1").Worksheets(1).Range("A3").Offset(r, 0).Value

r = r + 1
Loop Until Workbooks("July-1").Worksheets(1).Range("A3").Offset(r, 0).Value = ""

I'm required to use the same procedure to copy one of the 23 open workbooks in one time into the worksheets("Allocation&Trading") of another new workbook, which means after using the procedure to copy some ranges from the workbooks("July-1"), I can reuse it to copy the same ranges from the workbooks("July-2") into that same worksheets("Allocation&Trading"). So my procedure has to be flexible enough to work for 23 times for 23 different workbooks in the same folder. Anyone has any idea how to use the same procedure to work for 23 workbooks seperately? I have tried out the codes provided in the similar threads, but they can't solve my problem. Can anyone enlighten me?

## 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 book2..so 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 .

## 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.

## Open Multiple Workbooks & Copy Sheets

Jul 17, 2007

I have a created a main workbook with a macro that opens workbooks on a particular sheet from a list of workbook paths and filenames in the main workbook. The macro are suppose to copy the sheet and paste it into a sheet with a new name that I have defined from the list in the main workbook. I can get the macro to open the workbooks and close them. But I can't get the macro to copy the sheet into the main workbook.

I have attached the code and the workbook. I used slet_ark to delete previous sheet and hentark and henttekstfil to open the different workbooks.

The code I use are:

Public Sub Slet_ark()
Dim ark() As Variant
Dim Counter As Long
Dim FirstSheet As Long
Dim LastSheet As Long

## 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:

"Code execution has been interrupted" ...and the Range I tried to select in the source file is highlighted by the Editor.

Is the source file protected somehow?

## 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.

## Automatically Open, Copy, And Close Multiple Workbooks

Jul 26, 2006

I have 77 excel workbooks that are created each week, they are all in the same directory. I have to open each one and copy the data into a single workbook. The file names change slightly each week.

example: DIST_91124_GROWTH_PRODUCT XXX _07072006.xls The 07072006 is the week ending date and will change. Each of the 77 files has a different DIST_number.

Is there a way to automate this process, it takes me about 4 hours to do it manually.

## Copy Multiple Ranges/Cells To Another Open File

May 8, 2008

I need to copy multiple cells from 1 worksheet to another worksheet on different workbook and for every entry it has to create a sequence #

- source file (ex. data1.xls, data2.xls, etc)
* data & field structure is fixed
- destination file (case1.xls)
* field structure is fixed

1) destination file (case1) will be opened first, a button is prepared (associated w/ macro) and it will open the source file (ex data1.xls) & then copy the cells B2,B3 and E2,E3
2) the copied cells will be pasted to destination file (case1) in cells B3,C3 and D3,E3 respectively
3) a sequence # will be created in cell A of the destination file

this process will be repeated to other remaining files (ex. data2.xls same structure as data1.xls) manually. It means i will perform the task only if required. i have a created a simple code attached to case1.xls

## VBA To Open Multiple Spreadheets And Copy/paste Cell Ranges

Feb 19, 2009

In my consolidating spreadsheet there are 6 columns that show the file path, the worksheet name, and cell range to copy. There can be an unlimited number of rows (each row represents another path). I would like the VBA to copy/paste values from each range specified in each row and copy them into the consolidating worksheet named "copied".

Each time the VBA copies/paste values from the cell range specified in each row it needs to copy below the previous copied and pasted information in the worksheet named copied.

In the worksheet with the file paths etc shown below (named "list"), I would like the VBA to show the Date and Time each piece was copied and pasted. For each path I would like to show in the last column if the copy and paste operation was successful ("yes" or "no"), this is more or less the error handeling....

## Open Multiple Workbooks Based On Cell Values And Copy And Paste Information?

## Suppress Open Events When Using Workbooks.Open

Dec 3, 2008

I have built a sub that prompts the user for a folder then opens every workbook in the folder 1 at a time to get stats on the contents of each workbook. Worked like a dam until I ran into an unexpected bug. Some of the users built on open events in their workbooks. ...

Right now my routine inventories workbooks to get formula counts, cell counts, most complex formula, highest value... it does this by looping throught the sheets and the cells. If there is a way of obtaining those stats without opening the workbook I may need to rethink a lot of my work.

way to suppress the code in the target workbook I open through workbooks.open

## Copying Ranges Between Workbooks In An Array

Jun 4, 2009

I am trying to copy and paste between workbooks that are defined in an array. However, I get an out of range error when the code first reaches the line Workbooks(Wkbk(WkbkNum)).Activate.

Sub Gather_Risks()

Dim MasterRow As Integer ' Declares row number in Master Worksheet
Dim RowNum As Integer ' Declares row number in active array worksheet
Dim Wkbk(13) As String

MasterRow = 3
WkbkNum = 0

' Declare Wkbk array

Wkbk(0) = "G:Catering-RiskRegister-0409.xls"

## Copy Worksheets From A Couple Of Workbooks To Other Workbooks

Jun 26, 2014

I have 25 files with certain worksheets that I need to move to 25 other files.

Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook A needs to be moved to Workbook A-2014 Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook B needs to be moved to Workbook B-2014 Worksheet 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Workbook C needs to be moved to Workbook C-2014 etc....

Is there a way to do this with a macro? Preferably I would like to do this automaticly - i.e. runing the macro from a master file that

1. Opens Workbook A copies the worksheets
2. Open Workbook A-2014 paste the sheets
3. Save and close Workbook A-2014
4. Close workbook A without saving

then doing the same for Workbook B, etc.

## Name Two Ranges On Four Tabs In Workbook Across Multiple Workbooks

Apr 12, 2013

I have timesheets in work, where i created basic formulas to display times & worked hours etc. I also have named ranges on 4 of the sheet.

The sheets are named as the department (area 1, stock control etc.). All the sheets are identical in terms of layout, only the names of staff and hours worked are different.

When i created them, i tried to be pro-active and created flippin loads, through to October this year. Problem being i created a Summary sheet for each workbook, which in short takes all names from all areas and collates them on the last tab, puts Mon-Sun across the top, enters the hours into the relevant days, merges hours worked in different areas and also splits the hours worked over each day.

Everything is working flawlessly.

Except, the above evolution of the sheet was done after i mass created the timesheet, and as such i need to manually open each sheet, set the ranges and name them, add a summary sheet, add the macro, save and close.

Is it possible to create a macro on book1, that when i open however many other workbooks (the actual timesheets) the code would set and name the ranges for me?

The time sheets are all named according to the week -> 'W.C - 08.04.2013', 'W.C - 15.04.2013' etc.

## UDF #VALUE! When Other Workbooks Open With Same UDF

Nov 14, 2006

I have a UDF in a workbook that works fine until I open another workbook which contains the same UDF. When Excel does a full recalculation it not only recalculates the currently selected workbook but also recalculates all other open workbooks. Something from the currently selected workbook appears to interfere with the other open workbooks as these other workbooks show #VALUE! in all cells that use the UDF. Is there some way to make a UDF unique only to the workbook that it resides in such that opening another workbook with the same named UDF won't interfere with it?

Function SumRangeLookup(FromCode, ToCode, Database, FromColumn, ToColumn)
Dim Code As Range
Dim MonthColumns As Integer
Dim CalcResult As Double
SumRangeLookup = 0
For Each Code In Range(Database)
On Error Goto SkipCode
If Code >= FromCode And Code <= ToCode Then
For MonthColumns = FromColumn To ToColumn
CalcResult = CalcResult + Code.Offset(0, MonthColumns)
Next MonthColumns
End If
Next Code
SumRangeLookup = CalcResult
SkipCode:
End Function

## Search Multiple Workbooks & Match Named Ranges

Dec 6, 2006

I need to create a macro to find matches between multiple specific workbooks and a named range. I am new to macros and am very confused. After searching the forums here, I am still lost, even though they are very informative. So far,I have created a Dynamic Named Range called NamesList

=OFFSET(CurrentDay!\$B\$2,0,0,MATCH("*",CurrentDay!\$B:\$B,-1),1)

that selects the cells which I update manually each day. Once I have updated the list of names, I need to create a macro that will decide whether or not the names in the dynamic named range CurrentDay (located in workbookA) already exist in workbookB. The macro needs to create a list of the which names already exist in the workbook, and which do not. For the names that do not exist in workbookB, I then need to search workbookB and workbookC for matches, again creating a list of results. Until now I have been manually using Ctrl + F (Find Method)and going down my list of names to search through each workbook.

## Workbooks Open In Same Window

## Open Workbooks In Two Folders

Jun 24, 2009

I have a script below that opens all the workbooks in a folder based on a msgbox. The script works as is. However what I would like to do is remove the msgbox and have the script go back and forth between the folders.

Example it would open one workbook in the (Large Area)folder call my other script (Hazleton_Data_Conversion) Return Open a workbook in (Varsity) Folder Call the
my (Hazleton_Data_Conversion)and repeat the process till all the workbooks in both folders have been processed.

Like I said this script works with the msgbox I just like to change to without msgbox and to flip back and forth.

## VBA To Open All Workbooks In Folder?

Oct 17, 2013

I have a macro that opens all workbooks in a folder and searches for a few terms returning the appropriate rows, my problem is that someone has decided to protect some of the sheets so when the files are opened you get the password box popup. I have added the (filename, readonly) segment however this has not solved the issue, the macro displays an error stating a workbook is open.

Is there any way to resolve this without unprotecting the sheets?

## Workbooks.Open Function

Jul 19, 2007

I am trying to use Workbooks.Open() function in a function. The function is not working as desired (it does not return workbook object), but when i use same piece of code in sub(macro), it works fine. I am not sure if I cant use this API inside function. I am using function because I would like to call this inside cell and that should return some value.
