Create Hyperlink To Folder

Sep 4, 2009

I'm trying to create a link to a folder and to insert it in a cell. The folder name is: "C:DISCO CTEMPLATES #1". I tried to copy that text and paste it into the cell. Excel recognizes that as a hyperlink but when I click the cell a message appears: "Cannot open the selected file" Could the problem be because of the "#" symbol?

Folder Names Instead Of File Names/macro

Dec 10, 2008

I need to make this macro read FOLDER names instead of FILE names. When I posted this question yesterday to get this macro, I wasn't told that each file in its own folder. I need the folder names now.

Sub test()
With Application.FileSearch
.LookIn = "C:Ford"
.SearchSubFolders = False
.Filename = "*.*"
.FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles
If .Execute() > 0 Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
Cells(i, 1) = .FoundFiles(i)
Next i
Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found"
End If
End With
End Sub

Extract Data And File Names From File In Folder And Paste Into One Sheet?

Jan 13, 2013

The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.

how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?

It would make it easier to track the data in column B.

Sub CopyFromFile()
Dim fPath As String
Dim lRow As Long


I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.

The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.

Matching Text Within A File Name To A Folder

Mar 21, 2007

I'm looking to loop through a particular folder and depending on a reference contained within the file names move then to the corresponding folders and so on until the folder is empty.

I'm thinking the following can extract the reference from the filenames...

myRef = Mid(objFile.Name, Find("Ref -", objFile.Name) + 1, 5)
but I'm not sure how to hold that information (5 number reference) and then match it to a corresponding sub directory of the folder.

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names

May 1, 2008

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).

Matching Names With Numbers (total)

Sep 1, 2009

In Cell A1 I have a name (John Doe). In cell A2 I want the formula which will be a number total. In Cells A4:A20 I have a list of names with John being in several of them. In Cells J4:J20 I have numbers. There is data in between the name and numbers that I don't need.

So, I want A2 to search A4:A20 and everytime it sees John Doe to add the numbers that are 9 cells over (J4:J20). This is basically to show how many mistakes John has made (total). I tried =Sumproduct((A4:A20=A1), (J4:J20,1,0)). I know I am missing something or not on the right track.

Highest Number From File Names In Folder

Dec 22, 2009

I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:

c: est

has the following files:
Untitled.xls - read only

Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).

Create A Shortcut To A File, Not Hyperlink

Jul 5, 2006

How can I change the text color within a cell when I am using a concatenation formula? I have the following formula;

=" Total Bonus Earned ("&TEXT(A2/VLOOKUP($A$1,PR_DB,2,False),"#0.0%")&" of 2006 Earnings):"

In the text function portion I would like to format the result in red. An example of the result of my formula I am seeking is as follows; Total Bonus Earned (10% of 2006 Earnings): Do I need to create a custom format and if so how do I call it up within the text function?

Create Pivot Table For Each File In Folder?

Apr 5, 2012

I have the following code that will open each file in a folder and run code on it. I'm trying to write code that will create a pivot table on each of the opned files...but cannot get past opening the file...

So I had built the vba code into a specific workbook so I could just drop that workbook into any folder I wanted to run code on files to and depending on the name of the file it would run different type of code. The problem has something to do with using "activesheet" for the pivot table wizard. It just doesn't like it and gives me a application 1004 error.

any way I can modify the activesheet so it will make a pivot of the newly opened file? I think what it is trying to do is make a pivot of the blank workbook that the code resides in

Sub filelooper()
MyDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path ' current path
Dim MyFile As String

Create PDF File From Word Doc Inside A Folder With ID And Ref Number From Cells In Excel

Jul 31, 2014

I have an excel database where I register cases. I have in it a button that creates a folder with and ID nr that is in column A (I create new ID nr in the next row, when I press the button it will create a folder with that ID nr and inserts a blank word document in it). We have a template that we copy to the folder (depending what type of case). The idea would be that once the template is filled in and ready to print, It would take the values from the ID nr and a reference number a few cells to the right. Is it possible to tell excel to open the word document in the folder and create a PDF version with the ID nr and reference number. (there are only 2 templates, so the macro would have to look for one of the two in the folder)

The name of the templates are: "Standard" and "Other".

I guess the best way to start maybe this would be that I select the cell with the ID nr and then press a macro button to have this done.

One thing that needs to be done, is to put a copy in the same folder and another in a second folder called "Binder" in my documents folder.
