Excel 2007 :: Sort All XLS Files In Folder By Modified Date?
Jul 24, 2012
I'm trying to sort all .xls files in a folder by modified date. I want most recent at top because then I will be cycling through and using the most recent version of files that have similar names.
The code I have so far is this:
Dim folderPath As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim wb As Workbook
But I need something before it sort the folder by the modified (or better creation date) because there are several files with similar names. I know know, I could put a date in the file name and look for that but I don't control the naming of the files.
I need to insert a date modified column to an Excel 2007 workbook I am currently using. The columns range is from A to L, with about a hundred data points. However, I would like to have the date modified cell update only when there are changes to rows F through L, starting with row 3.
I need the code to still function if I add rows, and it would be great if it would also still run if I added columns, but that part is not necessary. I've gotten close by defining a cell name as myCol and using this code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Row < 3 Then Exit Sub
I wish to create a macro that looks in a specific directory "D:Records" . It finds the files which are modified after a date "January 01, 2012" in this directory (pdf files). Then it imports these files names into a worksheet.
I currently have a macro working where I can populate the A Column with files from a directory and based on its file extension, however I am having problems trying to populate the second (B) column with that files date modified. I have searched the forum to no avail and I must admit I not the best with vba.
Sub INP_files() ' searches within the file location ' C:Arenium_Projects31-1853012_Barnawartha BOSCADDMX Dim rngOut As Range Dim strPath As String Dim strfile As String ' Sheets("INI_FILES").Select
I'm trying to make a macro that will search a folder and move all files from 2008 into another folder. So far it can do this, but what i need is for it to search subfolders also. At this point it moves all files from the main folder, but nothing from the subfolders.

Dim objFSO As FileSystemObject Dim objFolder As Folder Dim PathExists As Boolean Dim objFile As File Dim SrcFolder As String Dim DestFolder As String Dim x, Counter As Integer, Overwrite As String, strNewFileName As String Dim strName As String, strMid As String, strExt As String Dim LastModYear
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 am trying to put this in about 25 cells to point at 25 different files. Basically I am trying to keep an eye on when the files have been updated each morning so that I can then pull off some data from them and who saved it.
I solved the first part (see next post) but I still havent been able to get it a function pull off the username.
On this forum I read about the application "FileSearch" that doesn't work in office 2007. I used the macro on below in office 2003 and it worked. Now I upgraded to Office 2007 and it doesn't work. But if you search "NewSearch method" in the MS Excel Help you can find that the application exists and it has the same morphology I am using!! Why Doesn't it work??
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch 'Change path to suit .LookIn = pPath .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks .Filename = "*.xls" If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbooks in folder Redim FNameArr(.FoundFiles.Count).......................
I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.
One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french
can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:
NO = B BA = W RG = R SO = P JA = Y BE = L VE = GY GR = G VI = V MA = BR BJ = TA OR = O
Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.
What I wanted was to a function, say, "=LastModifiedDateOf(CELL)", where CELL, is a parameter that indicates the cell I want to monitor. If the value of such cell ever gets changed, the cell containing the function has its value updated to the current date.
E.g. A1 = "AA" A2 = "=LastModifiedDateOf(A1)" -> "10/03/2011 10:30:32"
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I currently have a code that searches a folder, opens a spreadsheet, and then copies over the "Status" tab to the Master document.
New spreadsheets will be created a couple times a week, so I would like the code to be able to search this folder for the most recently modified document and then open THAT document.
So, if my folder has..
Report 10May11 Report 05May11 Report 17May11
Then, I would want a code to search in this folder for the most recently updated document (in this case "Report 17May11.xlsx) and then go through the step I have above where it copies over the various tab.
Basically, this code would I guess replace the example code I have below.
I have this existing macro which saves each tab into a separate excel file. However, I'd like for it to also save them together in a new folder using the current month and date (named: QA Files May_05.06.14). The month and date would change according to current month/date. How would I incorporate that into this code? I am not good with macros.
Sub tabname() Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In Worksheets ws.Activate ws.Name = Range("D1").Value Next
I want to open all csv files in a folder and just copy and paste some columns into another file. I am having a bit of trouble with the following code which can be found at ozgrid and I have modified slightly so it looks in the current directory instead of a fixed path...
Code: Sub RunCodeOnAllFiles() Dim lCount As Long Dim MyDir as string
For starters, if I don't use on error resume next I get a runtime error 445: object doesn't support this action. So when I use the on error resume next, then by the time it gets to the foundfiles line, there are no variables set, so on the next line (workbooks.open) nothing happens.
Is there an easier (more up to date?) method to open all csv files (or excel files) in a folder?
I have a folder in my D drive where I used to keep my Text files after downloading it from our support centeral. I want to Import all these Text files in one excel sheet in a way that data of each file got append in excel sheet below previous file data.I am trying to do this through FSO but unable to do the same.
I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.
i am working with a large data set of excel files . I need to format the sheets in a specified way . i have recorded a marco that does this . I now have the problem of creating an automatic loader that opens the files , carrys out my macro , then closes the files.
For example i have a folder X that has 10 files inside it. i would like to be able to load the first file , carry out the macro, close the file move it folder y . Then look back into Folder X , take the first file it see's , carry out the macro , close the file , move it folder y , the go back to folder x and carrying out this until all the files are done and stopping when the folder is empty
There is a folder with all excel files with the same structure. I need a macro, who opens one file by one in a folder, change the layout, and save it too same place with same name. Changing the layout will I do with macro record.
Sub AllFiles() Dim MyFolder As String 'Path containing the files for looping Dim MyFile As String 'Filename obtained by Dir function Dim MyBook As Workbook MyFolder = "D:LABODIESTSOST_DIEST" 'Assign directory to MyFolder variable
I have obtained a piece of code from online that runs a macro on multiple files in a single given a single folder. when i implement it though it throws a run time error 424 "object required' and point to 'Documents.Open FileName:=path & file' line of code. Is this because Dim file type is not declared?how do i fix this problem. also, im using excel 2010.A
I have a macro that searches in all the excel files contained in a folder (weather files are opened or not) and returns the information (File name, Sheet name , Cell Address, and contents of the cell). I just want to amend the said code so that it copies not just the cell alone but" the entire row in which the cell is present".
I'm working on a project where I need to import 150 csv files into an Excel2010 workbook, with each csv file being on a seperate worksheet.
I would like to set up a macro to point to the folder I will have these saved in this up so that each month when I get updated csv files I can repeat the process and bring in the new data. how to create this, I'm very new to VBA?
For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.
I'm new to excel and have had a hang up with the MkDir feature. I would like to check if a folder exists based on a certain cell value, and then create the directory if it does not exist. This is what I have so far.
Dim newFile As String Dim Path As String newFile = Range("D5").Value & " " & "op" & Range("B200").Value & " " & Format$(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") Path = Range("A210").Value
