Copying Data In Specified Cells In Multiple Files To A New File
Apr 12, 2006
I have about a thousand Excel timesheets that all contain 'hours worked' data in a column. Each row contains the area of the project they have worked on and therefore the amount of time they have spent on it. The timesheets also contain the person's name and a w/e date.
I want to sequentially work through each timesheet held locally in a single folder and copy the person's name, w/e date and the hours held in the column into a single new spreadsheet. I need to transpose the data so each amount of time spent on an activity ends up in a column.
I have attempted to record a macro for this but each time I try and run it after the intitial run, it moves to a completely different cell or set of cells to the ones I have directed it and consequently there is no data copied to the new sheet.
I believe this is the first problem..! The second is working through a high number of spreadsheets held in a single locattion but whilst browsing this site I saw the "Excel VBA Loop Through a Folder of Excel Workbooks" page and think this should work fine.
How do I write a vb macro that copies everything from multiple files, including sheets within files, and puts them into one master file. Here's what I have so far. I used a script from gnaga that worked great but it didn't copy seperate sheets. If you can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
Sub MergeSheets() Dim SrcBook As Workbook Dim fso As Object, f As Object, ff As Object, f1 As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set f = fso.Getfolder("C:Temp") Set ff = f.Files
I have about 100 files with using date as file name (ie. 08.20.07.xls, 08.21.07.xls, 08.22.07.xls....etc) Each file contain exact same # of fields (Columns) but varying number of rows. I would like to have a macro in my "Consolidated.xls" file to go through each file and put them into a single sheet with the first column as date field (source file name)
First Name Last Name DOB John Doe 11/1/77 Jane Doe 12/1/78 "" "" ""................
I have an master excel file with 20 sheets with names x,y,z,a,b,c,f,.... Each and every sheet has data which start from Row 7 and Column 2. Now i need to consolidate this data in one sheet in another excel file.
Consolidation should be like
Suppose X sheet has 20 rows and 4 columns of data which starts from Row 7 and Column 2, this data has to be copied and pasted in my new excel file copied on my desktop. Now first 20 rows are occupied in new excel file.
Now code should move on to master excel file Sheet Y which has 45 rows and 4 columns of data which starts from Row 7 and Column 2,this data has to be copied and pasted in my new excel file from row 21, which means Master excel file sheets has to be clubbed to one consolidated excel file.
In All the sheets in Master file Data starts from Row 7 and column 2.
Data range varies row wise in each sheet but column length is fixed to 4.
Trying to learn the basics of how to pull data, from the same formatted excel spreadsheets, combined into one consolidated spreadsheet. I created a few examples below of what I am trying to do. Eventually, I want to be gathering data from over 200 spreadsheets at one time. I believe that a MACRO is needed to do such a thing. I am not sure of the complexity of the MACRO, so hopefully I will be able to mimic whatever needs to be done in my actual file. I have almost ZERO experience with MACROS, so if this is way above entry level MACRO.
Below I have 3 spreadsheets, and I want to collect the data from those 3 spreadsheets into the consolidated spreadsheet.
I have approx 11 files in one folder and one master file with same format. 11 files are split user wise and user inuputting the remarks against the invoice in coloum Y and Z in their respective files. I want macro/forumul to collect all the remarks coloum from all users to master files against the respective invoice no.
I have about 200 excel files all with the same layout as they are questionnaire answer forms, all I want from them is the information from 1 Column: Column C. I want to copy the information that is in Column C of all 200 files into 1 worksheet, each column next to each other in the worksheet so I can just scroll along and see all answers next to each other.
Is there any way to easily do this? At the minute I am manually pasting the column I want into my worksheet but this is taking too long.
I have 20 files with the same exact format. I want to copy two cells from each file (G26, G52) into another worksheet. Unfortunately, all of the files have the same name, so I guess I have to rename them all manually (1,2,3,etc.). Any code that will copy the results and paste them into A2,A3 and then go down the column based on the "name" (1,2,3, etc) of the open files?
I am having some 100 excel files in a folder. I need to copy specific values in those files to another new excel file. The file names are like file_0.xls,file_1.xls.....etc and the range to paste those values are like B1, B51,B101...etc...
I got the code for one file. Now i need to increment the final name and pasting range.
Copying data that is in one coloumn in an unsorted order to another file where I have the values in a specific order I want. There I want it sorted in a new row each time I click a button in the first file.
I have a script that does this in a new column each time. I need it in a new row in a table to keep the graphs auto updating without having to use a macro in the end file. Current VBA that copies it to a new column instead of a new row in the table (modified to remove file names).
How the current VBA works. It refreshes the file it is in to update the data from SQL, then opens the other file, copies it over using sumif compared to the first coloumn in the file. Adds the current date, copies everything it added and replaces it with values so the formula isn't kept once it saves and closes the file. It then saves the start file and stops.
I'm having problem in copying the data from 2 notepad files into a single excelsheet, i have the below macro which creates two seperate excel sheets. i want to put the data from summary1 to tab1 and summary2 to Tab2....
I was to combine 130 files into one file without having to open all the files, if it's possible if not, then I guess I'll have to open them up. All Files have the same number of columns but difference number of rows.
to separate a very large excel file into multiple files based on what's in a single column.
I am an intern at my district school board and I'd love to know if there is a way to do this.
In the attached file the first tab is an example of some of the information I have in my file. My file is thousands of rows larger. The next few tabs are examples of new files (not just new tabs) That I would like separated and saved somewhere on my hard drive.
Notice the files are split up based on the student.
Is there a way to parse out this information into new files? The file is huge and I need it to do this automatically. If it isn't possible to save new files, is it possible to parse out the students into new tabs? But I have too many students I think. How many Sheet Tabs can you have in 1 file?
I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?
i would like to use the application.getopenfilename to select multiple files, then with these file's would like to be able to use them to create a email with these files as the attachment. then move the files to a new location and delete the originals.
I have situation which needs expert advice. I have about 22 Excel files of different branches with similar data. I have to link some calculated cells from each of these files into one file to show the consolidated data. There are about 18 calculated cells in each file, so linking each one is practically impossible.
I'm trying to build a macro to open multiple files at one time that will always be saved in a consistent drive. The problem is that sometimes there will only be one file for a month (ie only at month-end) and other times, there may also be additional files for different dates throughout the month. I wont know ahead of time how many files there will be, but they will always be saved in the same file name type that is "FILE DESCRIPTION MM-DD-YYYY". How can I build a loop that looks for a file on each possible day but doesn't error out if the file doesn't exist?
I have a bunch of workbooks in a folder and I'm basically trying to take the average of the same specific range for each file. I have somewhat of a method for doing this where I separate it into several steps and grab bits of code for each step (there's descriptions on the code). How I can improve or streamline it?
Code: 'STEP 1 'run this first to combine multiple files/workbooks into one file 'Change MyPath to the folder location Sub Merge2MultiSheets()
I have around 50 text files with similar design per attached file. I need to import the text files with criteria below:-
1. include file name 2. let user choose the folder 3. exclude data from "work in process summary" to "work in process cost totals" 4. only have one title in the excel files which all text files is combined "Item, Line ....." 5. If the text files do not have title like "Item, Line, ..." do not import
Is it possible to have all criteria listed above by running a macro?
I currently have a code that copies (when both workbooks are open) the status report tab from one workbook to another. So, my code copies the entire "Status" tab from Report.12102012.xlsx to Master_Report.xlsx.
But, there will continually be new Report.(DATE).xlsx files that are being made and I would like for my code to be able to search for the newest date "Report" spreadsheet, open it (so employee doesn't have to find the newest spreadsheet), and then copy the "Status" tab to my Master_Report.xlsx file.
All of the "Report.(DATE).xlsx" files will be stored in the same folder.
