ActiveSheet.Cells(1,1).Copy Destination:=Workbooks("c:directoryfilename.xls").Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(1,1)

Copying Data From Old Workbook To New Workbook
I am trying to automate the process of filling out monthly reports and I have run into a problem I just cannot seem to work around.

These reports contain both weekly and monthly information, but because most months do not end on a friday or begin on a monday I have to have a couple of the week reports as partial weeks (e.g. April ended on a Thursday and so that week's report has both April 27-30 and May 1). When the first week of the next month's report runs I would like it to prompt the user to locate the last month's report, open the report, find week 5 of that report and copy the relevant data into the current month's report. (Hopefully that explanation is sufficient)

What I am running into is, after prompting for and opening the past month's report I am trying to select the Range A137:I232 on Sheet5 but instead the previous month's report just opens to wherever it was when it was last saved and won't select any ranges I tell it to, it just selects the range it was on last time it was saved. It will then copy that range and paste it into the Current Month's report.

below is my code ...

Copying From One Workbook To Another
I have two spreadsheets LocalTime (saved on everyones local pc)
Admin which is (saved centrally)

IThe spreadsheets are a timesheet to be filled in by all staff.

At the end of the month they will upload the data to the central copy
Which in turn writes the data to a master sheet and removes there name from a list.

I can copuy the data from the Admin sheet (central sheet to the master list and remove the name)

My problem is copying the local copy (certain ranges only) to the Admin version.

I have named ranges and this is one of the problems as when i did get it sort of working it kept asking which range to inclue from which sheet.
Then i sis something and i know get error 1004.

the code i used so far is as follows

Private sub upload_click()

Appliction.ScreenUpdating = False
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsshaunmMy DocumentsDemoAdmin.xls"

Copying Sheets From One Workbook To Others
I have 12 workbooks with 2 spreadsheets in each: Assessments and Instructions. What I would like to do is have one master spreadsheet of instructions I can use to update all the other sheets. After changes are made, I would like to run a macro that would copy the master instructions sheet, open the other workbooks, copy over the information in those workbooks (on the Instructions sheet only), and then close them. I have no idea where to start.

Copying Certain Data From One Workbook To Another
I have a Workbook that contains some invoice data from a purchase. I would like to copy this data to a "Master" workbook that'll put everything from that particular workbook on 1 row, and put all the data from another workbook on the next free row and so on.

For example in workbook "Mock" i would like to copy all the cells that have arrows next to them into "Mock 2". Unfortunetly some of the invoices aren't similar in format so i named all the cells that i want to copy (instead of copying cell C3 i'd copy cell "type").

Some of the cells are lists and some of them have conditional formatting with colors. I tried copying the data using Range.copy but it also copied the color of the cell which isn't what i want.

And finally is there a way to generate a unique number each time a new invoice is copied in a row, and them copy that back to Mock 1 cell B2.

Copying Worksheet In Same Workbook
I have a workbook with 2 worksheets. On sheet 1 (Roster) is a list of names; on sheet 2 (Summaries) is a set of calculations.

I want to create multiple copies of sheet 2 (Summaries) and name them according to the list of names on sheet 1 (Roster).

Creating and naming the worksheets appears to be working fine. The problem is that the worksheets that are added are blank, not copies of worksheet 2.

My code follows.

Copying Data To Another Workbook
I have made this form to basically allow the user to enter data, click the save button and all the data on screen will move to another sheet "Leads Log" and then the data on the form "Insurance form" will be cleared for next time around.

This works fine and will keep adding records onto the second sheet...but ideally i would like to data to be copied and saved to another sheet in another workbook - seperate to this one.

Suggestions on the relevant code would be great. Please find attached my system so far.

VBA Copying Rows Into Another Workbook
I have a workbook into which a number of rows will be imported (a variable number). These will be edited then I want all the rows to be stored in a ever growing database. At the moment I simply copy these rows open a second workbook and paste the rows into the first blank row in the second sheet.

Is there a way to do this automatically.
1) select and copy all rows containing data
2) open second workbook & find first blank row
3) Paste data into second workbook
4) Save and close second workbook

I think with some effort I could manage the copying and pasting but I have no idea how to open and close the second sheet automatically.

Copying Cells From Another Workbook With VBA...
I just need to know how to reference another workbook in order to copy values from cells on it to my own version of it. It's 18 pages, and I need to pull certain columns cell values from certain sheets (these columns are all fixed, no fancy statements required). I'm unfamiliar with the structure required to refer to another workbook. All I need to do is say "This workbook-Sheet1!D2:D20 = Workbook"Feb"-Sheet1!D2:D20", and so on, throughout the sheets.

I did look for solutions to this, but all of the answers are mixed in with complex statements for other simultaneous calculations... I find myself unable to pick out the small piece which I need from the mash of code I'm unfamiliar with.

Copying A Section Of Another Workbook
I am creating a spreadsheet that takes data from the previous week's spreadsheet - it's a weekly report. Using vba how can I access and copy a specific range of data from one worksheet on the previous week's workbook to a range in the new week's workbook. The data in the previous week's workbook is formulas, and I'm not sure how it could affect it, but I only need the values calculated and not the formulas to be transferred. I would also prefer it if the other workbook did not open in excel, so that it happens without any changes on the screen.

Copying Instances From One Workbook To Another
I have two workbooks, a "vehicle workbook" and an "Oil sample" workbook. I'm trying to write a macro that will store the ID of the vehcile in "vehicle workbook" into a varible, open the Oil sample workbook and find instances of the vehicle ID in column B. Next it will copy the entire row, and paste it back into the "vehicle workbook". I've taken some code and modified it to try and make it work but I'm running into problems. I'm very much a newbie to excel and macro's and am learning little by little. This is what I have so far...

Option Explicit
Sub btnFind_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False

Dim sourceLocation As String
Dim sourceFileName As String
Dim fileName As String
Dim vehicleFileName As String
'referencing the workbook location of the vehicle

Copying Range Of Cells From One Workbook To Another
I'm looking for an algorithm that does the following:

1. Open one-by-one a number of excel workbooks in a directory and copy their .UsedRange
(i.e. all sheet content in each of the workbooks).

2. Paste append one-by-one each of the workbooks .UsedRange of data into a master workbook that is already open (i.e. active workbook).

Note that the source workbooks and target master workbook contain the same format of data. So a simple copy and paste of the .UsedRange is apt.

Basically I need each .UsedRange of an opened workbook to be appended to the data from previously opened workbook in the master workbook already opened.........

Copying All Workbooks In A Folder Into 1 Workbook
1. I have a large number of Test Suites that are large documents with 1 (visible) sheet w/ test cases, and 1 (hidden) sheet w/ validations. Test Suite is saved with a unique name (that follows a naming convention we've set up on this project: <Project>_<Test Suite Category>_<Location in Software>_< date>.xls

2. I need to create a master document in which i can run a macro that will copy each "test suite" sheet from each of these documents, insert it into the master doc, and sort the sheets by name. then it needs to present the data from all of the sheets on the main page of the doc, and break down the results by Test Suite Category, and Location.

Is this possible?

Can I create a macro that will import sheets from (potentially) hundreds of different workbooks, and then sort them appropriately?

I've been looking all over the place, and while i've seen macros that can import specific data, rows, or columns, i havn't quite seen what i'm looking for.

Copying A Selected Cell In Col A And The Next Cell In Col B Into New Sheet
Basically I have a filtered list in colunms A to D. The user selects a cell in column A and I want to then be able to run a macro which copies that cell and the adjacent one in column B, into columns A and B on sheet2.

The complications are

Column B on the second sheet is merged with columns D to E so a straight forward cut and paste of A and B on sheet 1 into A and B on sheet 2 will not work in one cut and paste as it complains about merged cells. It would need to copy and paste A and then copy and paste B to avoid the error.

The row on sheet 2 where it is being pasted needs to be the first row between row 10 and row 30 where col A is blank (so it doesnt overwrite a previous copy and paste as they are basically creating a list on sheet 2 in those rows by runing this macro repeatedly). if there is no blank row then it should insert a new row at row 10 and paste into that

"compile error: expected: list seperator or)

and got the error compile error: expected : end of statement

i read some place to ensure that the reference is copied, one can use the following
wks.Cells(i + 13, 7).FormulaR1C1 = wks.Cells(i, 3).FormulaR1C1
