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.
VB: 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.
I am adding a list of file names to a combobox list and want to filter this by adding only the filenames that have been modified today. I have used the FileDateTime(Fil) but it leaves the combobox empty. I am using the code below. how to add only the files modified today.
i'd like to be able to import a list of file names from a folder. sounds fairly straight forward to me, but example:
folder a has 10 files in it (let's say PDFs - numbered 1 through 10). I'd like to be able to open the spread sheet, and see the file names in column b. ideally, i'd also like subfolders to be listed, in the next column. but, let's start with just this.
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 .NewSearch .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 Else Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found" End If End With End Sub
I am creating a proposal for a online sales store, i have in column A a list of item names that my buyer liked and wants to run, but i have to send them the pictures for the items which is located in a directory on my drive together with all other items. we have 4 category's of pictures 1 is the main image from this we only have 1 of each item, then we have the S category there we may have up to 3 images s1, s2 and s3 not more then 3 and the same is with the R category and with the M as well. We did created a VBA to copy all images from the list into a new directory with all sub pictures into a new sub dir. and bring back a list of all images not found. But i am having a problem when i run the code if it dosnt find the image looking for (for instanse EAR11-M1 the code stopes there looking for the file even the error checking in the code is set to resume what is wrong with code?
Is there a way to write somethign that will go to a particular folder on your computer and bring back the Names of all files in that folder?
I need to build a sheet that lists certain information from each file, which is already included in the file name - trying to avoid opening hundreds of files just to get data from one cell....for example:
I need help in creating a code which will search for files in a destination path and popluate a table to tell me if the file is present(Yes or No).
To explain I need a code which will find a specific path depending on the criteria and check if the files are present in those folders. These files will be named as todays date. Please find below the table format....
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:
has the following files: Untitled.xls - read only abc-09-001.xls abc-09-002.xls abc-09-003.xls abc-09-004.xls
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).
I have a folder that has multiple files that i would like to pull data from. This data is in the same cell in each file so all i would like to do is add the total value up at the end once it finished looping through all the files and display it on my sheet. Some of these files could have 1 worksheet where others might have 3-4. If I only have 1 file in the folder it works perfectly fine but as soon as the second file opens i get a Subscript Out of Range error (See code below for the line this error occurs on).
I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
i'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.
How I can have a summary sheet that takes a number from the same cell on each sheet in my workbook and display it on the summary sheet in a list. one for each sheet.
And is it possible to create a summary page that automatically updates every time I create a new sheet? (adds the name of the sheet to the summary list (alphabetical order) and the value of the specific cell)? Excel 2007
I am attempting to put a drop down list using "Data Validation". I can get it working when my list is on the same sheet (sheet 1) and the column of cells I want the drop down list to show up in....(you know..when the drop down list shows up in each individual cell)......BUT...when I put the list on another sheet (sheet 2) and try to do the "Data Validation" back on sheet 1, excel won't let me go highlight the list on sheet 2.
I even tried writing sheet2 and the range and that still doesnt work.
I have sub folders with names 0001, 003A, 0032 etc in a main folder. I am using the following code to copy these sub folders name to the worksheet column A. This works well except that folder 0001 is copied as 1, 0032 as 32. How to modify the code so that 0001 is displayed in column A instaed of 1.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Range("b3:b6500").Clear Range("c3:c6500").Clear Dim fs, F, f1, fc, s, i Range(Cells(3, 1), Cells(6500, 1)).Clear parentfolder = ThisWorkbook.Path Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set F = fs.GetFolder(parentfolder) Set fc = F.SubFolders For Each f1 In fc Cells(3 + i, 1) = f1.Name i = i + 1 Next End Sub
I am using Excel 2007 so I CANNOT use application.filesearch.
With that said, I need to change one of my old macros that searched for the newest file within a specified folder, and then display the name of that file in a message box that gives the person an option of opening the file. I've read too many workarounds for application.filesearch and I'm not sure how to combine them all into something I can use.
Normally I have a bit of code to start with, but this one has me so baffled I don't know where to start.
