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.
how do i go about creating a macro to copy a range in sheet 1 in workbook A and paste that to a new tab(the last one) in the existing workbook B. i would like the tab to be renamed based on a cell value. preferably workbook B doesnt have to be open, and the save and close it
Code: Sub CopyRow()' 'Copies row to new sheet, highlights it, marks column 'A' as copied. ' Dim cCell As Range Set cCell = Selection.Cells(1, 1) Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet2").Select Rows("2:2").Select
Is it possible to modify it to paste into a different workbook called c:filesDestination.xlsm, instead of the existing workbook (Source.xlsm)? The destination sheet name is the same (Sheet2). It's OK if both workbooks are open at the same time.
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 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.
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.

how to go about taking data from a closed workbook with a range say A1 to A100, and place it in the work book i have open. I have 3 different sheets in the open work book but all the data is coming from the one sheet in the closed workbook.
I need the code to allow a user to select a column of their choice in an open workbook of their choice so that data can be lookuped up and changed. I am happy to create the code to do the lookup/changing, however the nearest I have found is the use of an inputbox which is limited to the active spreadsheet only. Some people have said the input box could be used over to another spreadsheet but I have not found that to work.
What I will need returned is the workbook name, sheet name and column. That will allow me to point to that and do the task.
This code could be used by 5 people and those 5 people could be running it on 20 different spreadsheets.
I thought this would be easy to find but it has eluded me. When using Excel normally, if you do a simple lookup formula, or create pivot function, excel prompts the user to select the workbook/sheet.
I tried to open an existing Excel workbook, it tells me that it is already open. There is nothing on the screen. I closed Excel (using 2003 version) and restarted computer also. I tried to open the file again - nothing shows up on the screen. When I attempt to open the file again I get a message that says "(file name).xls is already open.
Reopening will cause any changes you made to be discarded. Do you want to reopen (file name).xls?". Even if I reopen the file, it still does not show up on the screen.
I have a range of weekly data that I need to copy into another workbook, paste it below the data that already exists there and then delete the data from the original workbook. I would love to do this with vba but after hours of searching on how to do this my brain is frazzled.
I have 50 workbooks that I need to import weekly into one master sheet (Master.xlsm) but they need to be done individually after the weekly data has been checked. The master sheet will therefore have existing data and the new data needs to be appended at the bottom. Also column A will be blank in both workbooks so to find the last used row it will need to look in column B.
The number of rows in the weekly sheet will also vary rather than be a fixed range so I guess the last used row will also need to be found there too.
The attached file is a cut down version of my working file showing where the data starts on Row 14, I won't need to copy the headings.
i facing another problem at here and do not know how to write the part of coding. it is pending for 2 weeks. i do not know how to explain so i attach the excel to explain. i hope can get any reply soon.
Copy and paste the values only from one workbook and a set of named ranges (Name1, Name2, Name3) but only the rows within the range were TRUE is found in column A - To a CLOSED workbook named Data / Sheet1 - located at C:NetworkTemplate starting with cell B10.
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 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'm trying to write a macro that accomplishes the following:
" Book 1" is already open. The user runs a macro that lists all .xls files in directory "d:measurements" The user selects the desired file from the list or box the macro copies from this "book 2" " sheet 3", " range A6:I107 and pastes (values only) into "book 1", "sheet 5", "range A6" End of macro.
I want to accomplish this without opening the selected file (book 2)
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 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.
By referring to the attached file, I have to copy all the datas which have a value only ( total=0 is ignored) in the Bin_Trip worksheet(highlight in image1 below), then all this data will be paste to other new workbook. All this job is done by clicking the start button and after user enter the directory(image2 below). The last result consist of the workbook with the pasted datas from Bin_Trip worksheet. image1 image2
