Create Sheets With Month Names By Date List
I'm trying to achieve is to write a macro that can search a column of dates then open new worksheets according to the months that are present in the column of dates. So, for example, if the column has dates ranging from January to June, I need the macro to open 6 new worksheets and label them January, February, March, April, May and June.
SaveAs Current Date & Append With Number
I have saved an Excel file based on today’s date using: ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "S:MTL_DATA Stock Orders" & "Stock_Order_" & oname & Format(Date, "dd-mm-yy") & ".xls"
If I wish to save a second file in the same day I wish to save as the date with “_1” or date with “_2” for the third file etc. How do I alter the above code?
Create Workbooks & Save-Name By Sheet Tab Names
Every month I work on an audit that has data from 35 different distributors. I have code below that puts each distributors audit/sales information on a new tab and each new tab is given the distributors name. This also creates a new workbook for each distributor.
When the new workbooks are created, how can I name each workbook with the distributor name it's being created for? Is it possible to predefine a file path to where these new workbooks will be saved?
The distributor names I'm using are in column AF.
'The code below creates and names a new tab for each members info
Dim ws1 As Worksheet
Dim wsNew As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Integer
Dim c As Range
Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set rng = Range("Database")
'extracts a list of member or distributor names
ws1.Columns("R:R"). AdvancedFilter _
r = Cells(Rows.Count, "T").End(xlUp).Row
'set up Criteria Area
Range("U1").Value = Range("R1").Value
For Each c In Range("T2:T" & r)
'adds the member name to the criteria area above
ws1.Range("U2").Value = c.Value
Create Multiple Workbooks With Names Based On List
I have some very tedious work to do in Excel:
table looks like following:
DepID name function
S1 a YY
S1 b XX
S1 c ww
S2 d oo
S3 e ii
S3 f ll
S4 t mm
. . . . . .. . . .
. . . . . .. . . .
. . . . . .. . . .
S7999 u ee
S7999 w aa
My task is to create new folders for each department according to DepID, which means if there are 7999 departments, I have to create 7999 folders, any VBA code can do this?
List All Sheets Names From Multiple Workbooks & Copy Transpose Certain Columns
this may or may not be easy for some of you but its driving me nuts. Here's what I need to do.
1.Create a new workbook
2.Cycle through multiple workbooks and all worksheets within each workbook (all in the same folder). All workbooks will have the same structure.
3.Take the worksheet names and put them in rows
4.Take the data from the first column (column A) from the first worksheet of the first workbook and put them across the top (i.e. transpose the data). The first column will be the same in all workbooks so it doesn't matter where I get it from.
5.Copy the data from column E from each worksheet and paste them in rows in the new workbook (again transpose) corresponding to each worksheet.
6. Perform simple mathematical calculations at the end of each row.
I expect to have approximately 26 workbooks with a total of 7000 worksheets. In the target workbook (i.e. the new one), I expect there to be 7000 rows (corresponding to the 7000 worksheets) and about 260 columns.
The only reason I need to transpose stuff is because Excel 2007 doesn't have 7000 columns.
Here's an example of what it would look like.
Example worksheet (Input)-
Col A Col E
Imagine another worksheet called LMN with the same ColA but different values in Col E.
ColA Columns B Column C Column D
Sheet 1/1/2004 1/8/ 2004 1/15/2004
ABC $25 $30 $15
LMN $xxx $yyy $zzz
Find Current Date On Several Sheets & Convert Surrounding Cells To Values
I keep track of values in a workbook. I accumulate them on a daily basis (business days) and keep track of the older values.
On the first sheet I have all current values automatically displayed.
All subsequent sheets contain the values for the different locations (>60) by one location per one sheet with multiple entries per location.
Most of the values do not change daily. So I copy the values from the previous day and paste them to the current day’s fields (the row below yesterday's values).
Today’s date (and prior dates as well as subsequent dates) are in column A, the values to be copied are in column B through AZ. With over 60 sheets this job becomes very tedious very quickly...
What I would like to be able to do, with a click of a button, is to go into each sheet (except the first one), go to the current date (in column A), select the field to the right of that date (in column B), go up one field, select both fields (today and last business day) and go from B to AZ (or A to AY in relative terms) copy all those entries, go down one field (to the same row as today’s date) and paste the content. Then repeat that for every following sheet…
As the date field that I am looking for goes down one field with each day I cannot use fixed points to copy and paste from, but have to use the date field as an anchor from whence to find the proper cells.
I do have some values in the following day's fields, that is why I need to copy two rows and not just the values from the previous day...
Append Names To Totals
Adding variable text to existed value
I need to realize such a thing. I have some data looks lie this.
As you see it consist of names Jim Kate Mary, some numbers, and total. There are only 3 different names. And the order of the names is not fixed. So it can't be simple changing loop between jim kate mary. The script should search for name then assign it to variable (or something like that) then search for word total and adds name from variable to word total ex. Jim Total 22324.3
So I need to add name to word total (in the same cell) so after all it should looks like that
Jim Total 2341.234
Kate Total 2344.45
Mary Total 23342.32
2000 Files All Saved As Different Names
I have 2000 excel files all saved as different names.
The Names of the the files are all from greyhound racing results, here are some examples.
4th January 2008 7.30
4th January 2008 7.45
So we have the date of the race and the time of the race.
In these 2000 files there is certian information I want to retrieve into 1 excel sheet to run analisis on them.
So cell A1 in every file is always the same and may contain a number I need.There are several numbers I want to retrieve from each file but I want it to display in 1 sheet, now I can do this manually and may have to but lets see.
Append Unique Data To Workbooks
I could use some help in modifying it so that instead of creating new workbooks to copy to, it copies to EXISTING workbooks whose names match the YEAR ("yyyy") in the Dates fields in column "B" (and only creates new workbooks for non-existing Years, IF needed).
Each workbook name is a "Year" (ie. 2000, 2001, 2002, etc.), and all unique data in A:D are to be copied to each corresponding Year workbook, again as per the Year in the Date field.
I’d like both columns "A" AND "B" tested to make sure that only original (non-duplicate) data is added to the corresponding Year Workbooks (all residing in one folder).
Btw, the code also copies the header, which is ok for new workbooks, but not needed for already-existing wbs.
Close Workbooks Saved As Elements In An Array
I have an array of data type Variant, who's elements are workbooks opened by a user.
The array size is static, which for now isn't a concern but I can't work out how to close the workbooks in the array via a loop and the usual vba code of Workbooks("file").Close
Code I have that doesn't work is:
Sub Close_Workbooks_In_An_Array ()
Dim dFile (1 to 6) As Variant
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
' // Some code to open files, set each dFile(i) as a file and then process
' // them. Max value for i is 6
j = 1
For j = 1 To i
MsgBox ("Closing: " & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & dFile(j))
VBA - Create Folder With Date In Name, Populate With Sheets
I have a workbook that will have many modules (5) that will perform all sort of checks etc. The output for each module is a worksheet that i need to export to a new workbook named with the name of the original sheet and current date appended e.g. "Dbase 27 06 2008.xls".
Every time any of the 5 modules is run a check is performed whether a folder with a specific name and date exists e.g. "Audit Tool 27 06 2008" and if it does not exist yet to create it. The new workbook should be saved to this folder with above mentioned name e.g. "Dbase 27 06 2008". I found some info on this topic but I just cannot assemble all pieces of code together (I am new to this).
Saved Sheet To Create Hyperlink
I have a workbook for Purchase orders.
how it works at the moment is when I fill in the Purchase prder sheet then save it, I have a macro that
Copies Sheet "Purchase Order" creates a new sheet to paste it to then also copies some details to A Sheet called "Register.
I would like to be able to (if possible)
1/ automaticly create a hyperlink between the P/o Nomber stored on the register as it is storing the new sheet &
2/ automaticly change the sheet tab to reflectthe P/order number in Cell G8
I have very little knowlage of VBA & am learning how to record macros so please be gentle.
here is the macro I recorded ....
Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names
Two part question:
1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
Last Date Saved Formula
Is there a formula that will get the date & time the workbook was last saved? I am using an earlier posted macro now but would like for the information to be visible constantly in a certain cell. Possible?
MsgBox "This file was last saved on " & Format(ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time"), "mmmm d, yyyy") & ".", 64, "Date of most recent save:"
Last Date Saved Code
does anyone have a simnple code that when entered in a cell only returns the last date the file was saved? better yet, could it somehow be specific based on a modification to a specific worksheet modified?
example: i have 8 worksheets. how can i show when one worksheet is updated, say November 27th 2006, and another worksheet on November 28th 2006?
Copy & Append To Report, Rows From Multiple Sheets If Any Cell Meets Format Color
I've seen a few threads on here about this issue but none of them do quite what I am looking for. I'd like for a single page "report" to be created when a user presses a button (which runs a macro, of course) The macro should be able to run through certain named sheets (even if hidden) and if a cell in any row is red within a sheet then the entire row or rows that meet the criteria should be copied and pasted into the Report sheet.
On the report sheet, for each sheet that has had rows that were copied, I'd like to have the name of the sheet as the header above the pasted rows so that the user knows which sheet the data came from. Any sheet that doesn't have red cells would be excluded from the report. I've attached a sample file but had to limit the number of sheets because of Orgrid's file size limit. Hopefully, you'll see what I am getting at here.
Tip To Show 'last Saved' Date On Worksheet
how I can have the latest date a file was saved showing on the worksheet? For example, I open a worksheet that was last saved on Sept 22nd, and after updating it today, I save it and want the date to show today's date?
I'm pretty sure I've seen it in some files in my working life, so would appreciate advice on this!
Last Saved By Time & Date In Cell
I'm looking for a way show the username of the person who last saved the spreadsheet, and the date & time it was saved. I would like to be able to ouput this data in certain cells on the worksheet. I have tried using something like:
Determine Last Saved Date Of Workbook
I am looking for a macro that will run on worksheet activation. it needs to run only if the file had been saved from the previous week. would something like this work?
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
If application.worksheet.lastsaved = msolastweek Then
Extract Data From Different Workbooks To Current Sheet
I am working with 3 different worksheets. Lets say they are named A, B, and C and for simplicity, and let us say they are all stored in C:worksheets (they are actually located on different network drives). I would like for excel to open and extract data from the Machine_List page in each workbook. Then output it to the current sheet that I am working with and just add the data to the next available empty cell on row A. They are also headers on each sheet so I would like to delete it or start copy from cell A2.
Userform - Insert File's Last Saved Date
if there is an easy way of showing the active file "Last Saved Date" on a Userform and have it show automatically when the Userform is opened? The Scenario is:
I have a "Main" userform screen and I want to have a text line which says, "File last updated on xx/yy/zzzz ". This must show up automatically when the "main" userform is opened.
Send Last Saved Date & Time To Cell
I have a macro that returns the time the sheet was last saved:
LSDate = Application.Caller.Parent.Parent. _
BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time").Value
Unfortuantely, the cell doesn't update without recalculating the cell. Is there a way to get the cell to update automatically every time the sheet is saved?
Open File With Last/Lastest Saved Date
I'm looking for a code which is checking the file name first before opening and operating on it. File name format is filenameyyyymmdd.xls but the problem is files in that directory are saved irregularly (couple times a week) and I need to open the newest saved file.
Append Date Variable To Header/footer
I'm trying to append a date variable to the end of headers for let's say 3 worksheets in a workbook. Each worksheet has a different string value, and I want to add a date variable at the end.
For example, sheet1, sheet2, and sheet3 says "Country Analysis", "Regional Analysis", and "State Analysis", respectively. I want to add the month and date to that so it would say something like "Country Analysis December 2007" for Sheet1, without hard coding it. Essentially, loop through however many worksheets and add a date variable at the end of each header on the left side.
I know how to get the date variable (format(date, "MMMM YYYY")) and the code behind the headers.
Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names
I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.
What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.
The code I have so far is below:
Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant
In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.
Merge Workbooks With Same Names
Each month I run 2 separate reports and have macros that break each report out by distributor. The end result is each spreadsheet creates a new tab and new workbook for each distributor’s information. Each spreadsheet has information for 30 distributors, so I end up with 60 new tabs and 60 new workbooks.
Spreadsheet one separates detailed sales information for:
Spreadsheet two separates summary sales information for:
Currently, I save each spreadsheets new workbooks in a different folder because each spreadsheet creates workbooks with the same distributor name. I then go back and open each spreadsheet with the same name and move a sheet from one workbook to the other and resave. Now I am trying to figure out the best way to merge these back together and am struggling with where to start.
I could keep opening each of the 2 new spreadsheets that are alike and copy or move sheets but with 30 new tabs to move to the matching spreadsheet it becomes time consuming. I’m hoping there’s a better way!
I’ve attached the Sales Detail Example and Sales Summary Example to see how the spreadsheets are being broken out but had to remove some data to trim down file sizes.
Defined Names In Workbooks
I am currently overhauling a massive workbook, that previously relied on an absurd amount of named ranges in order to run vlookups. I no longer need these named ranges and would like to delete them to unclog the workbook. Currently I only see a way to delete them one by one. Is there a way to mass delete all of them?
Range Names Between Workbooks
In one workbook, i have a sheet with date like this:
In each case, the Data is a block of cells of varying number of columns and rows. Each of the data blocks is a named range. When I reference the ranges from a separate workbook, the results from calling the range don't work at all (return #VALUE!) UNLESS the layout of the second workbook is the same as the source data! so for example, if range Data is in cells A2...F5, then i can reference that data ONLY if i put my formula in cell A2...F5 on the second workbook. this appears downright ridiculous to me and i'm hoping someone can tell me what i'm doing wrong!
Linking Names To Closed Workbooks
I've named some cells in the source workbook, and linked these names to the destination workbook. Then I used the names in some formulas in the destination workbook, and it worked great. But when I closed the source workbook it doesnt work. WHen I open the source it works great, but I need for it to be able to link to the workbook when it is closed as well.
Check Cell Has Date & Insert Current Static Date
I have a user form that when a command button is clicked it enters the data from the from into coloums a,b,c,etc. I have code to do this but I want to add code to add a static date in coloum B based on if coloum A had data entered from the form. I need the date not to change to current date when the file is reopened. I am trying to elimate a date text box in the form. I have a link to the file http://www.box.net/shared/zdtsjv0qos
Calculate Date Difference & Use Current Date If Cell Empty
i am trying to create a forumla in a column (D in my expamle below) to count the number of days between two dates. Knowing that col D will change everytime the @now date changes - but thats ok..
COL A COL B COL D
ROW 1 Open Date Closed Date Count of days open
ROW 2 4/1/07 BLANK CELL Formula result here
ROW 3 4/1/07 9/5/07 Formula result here
if col b has a date then subrtract col a from b and display the # result, if col b is blank then subtract col a from location I store the @ now date - say Col ZZ Row 99? so no matter there is a count of number of days in every row in column D
Windows System Date, Refer To The Current Date?
I'm working on a spreadsheet which needs to refer to the current date. My PC checks the system date/time daily. Can I assume that if an end-user regularly connects to the internet, their PC will have a correct system date? Does anyone know if Win2000 or Win98 automatically update the system date/time when connected to the internet?

Switching Between Workbooks Whose Names Are Stored As Variables

none of these work and I've tried a ton of other ways to get it to work but I just can't figure it out!
Open Multiple Workbooks With Variable Names
I have data spanning many files which are named with the date on which they were created (so there are 31 files for August).
PL080107, PL080207, PL080307, PL080407...)
I'm trying to compile all of my data into one workbook, and have the macro to append each file to a list. Now I need the macro to either OPEN each file, or ACTIVATE each file so that the rest of the Macro can grab the necessary data.
I say Open or Activate, because I can MANUALLY Open a full month's worth of files if it's easier code. If not, I would like it to open and close each workbook on its own.
I have over 7 month's worth, so opening 31 files 7 times is better than opening over 200 files individually!
Show Only The Date That Corresponds With The Current Date?
How do I get cell B1 to show only the date that corresponds with the current date?
If I enter 12/2, in one of the rows in column A it will display today dates in cell B1 since today is 12/2, but when tomorrows comes, since there is not a 12/3 date in column A, B1 cell will be empty, but when 12/4 comes, cell B1 will show 12/4 since that is a 12/4 date
