Excel 2010 :: Macro On Multiple Files In A Folder Run Time Error 424
Jun 23, 2013
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'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 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
I have a whole ton of *.dbf files (98 to be exact), that are from ArcGIS shapefiles. These date1_date2.dbf files have point names, and values, as shown below.
NAMERASTERVALU Point 1-9999.00000000 Point 2-9999.00000000 Point 3-9999.00000000 Point 4-4.93072701 Point 5-8.90071201
I'm trying to figure out how to transpose each of the dbf files and save them as a text file (tab deliminated). My original plan involved saving them all as text files, then using a convoluted Unix script (I'm what you call a "dirty programmer") to transpose them and then combine them all into a single file. Since there are so many files (and I plan to do this in the future as well), I thought if I could at least automate the text file creation, I'd be ahead of the game. Even better would be a macro that will transpose the data for EACH file, then create a 99 (98 files + header row) row, 5 column text file. Creating the text files (1 text file for each dbf file) automatically .
All the *.dbf files will have exactly the same # rows/columns (2 columns, 6 rows)
This is what I've tried so far. 1)open one of the dbf files in Excel 2)record my marco (using the Personal Macro Workbook option - so it will be available in any workbook) 2a) transpose data (and paste it right below the original data so that the new data is in rows 7 and 8 of the same file) 2b) save as text file (tab deliminated) 2c) stop recording, and end up with this:
NAMERASTERVALU Point 1-9999.00000000 Point 2-9999.00000000 Point 3-9999.00000000 Point 4-4.93072701 Point 5-8.90071201 NAMEPoint 1Point 2Point 3Point 4Point 5 RASTERVALU-9999.00000000-9999.00000000-9999.00000000-4.93072701-8.90071201
So now I want to apply the macro I just created to all open workbooks (after I bring in all the bdf files), but the macro isn't listed when I click the "view macros" button. All I want to do is apply the steps I recorded in the macro to all open workbooks.
I’m working on a project using Microsoft Excel 2010 and I want to add some features to facilitate saving and retrieving files process.
1.How can I save the daily created workbooks (Assume 15 files a day) in order to contain the current date (and time if possible) linked with certain cell(s) I have at my workbook forming the file name? (XYZ 2-4-2014) and/or (ABC 2-4-2014 23:11) and so on …
2.I’ve been through some other posts and I found VB code which saves the active file into specific path, but it is only useful for single workbook because multiple files are getting overwritten automatically. Is there a code which allows multiple/different files saving & creates daily folders?
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 would like my macro to go to a certain folder- in this case N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run, open each workbook therein ( to this end I have found the first part of the code below on another thread) and perform the ExcelDietMacro (also below). I am missing something though as nothing is happening, would anyone know from a quick glance what is wrong? Should I have these as 2 seperate Sub End Subs or combined into one? I know that the Excel Diet is correct thanks to the original designer and Rory on the forum for getting it adjusted to my needs.
Also each workbook within the folder will have the same password to open, is it possible to insert some code in the macro to do this automatically?
Sub LoopFiles() Dim MyFileName, MyPath As String Dim MyBook As Workbook MyPath = "N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run" MyFileName = Dir(MyPath & "*.xls") Do Until MyFileName = "" Workbooks.Open MyPath & MyFileName Set MyBook = ActiveWorkbook Application.Run "ExcelDietMacro" MyBook.Save MyBook.Close MyFileName = Dir Loop End Sub

I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).
I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.
There are certain .xlsm files in our system (some have macros and others don't) which generate "Error: Source not Found" in the Edit Links dialog box when the Check Status button is pushed. However, the source location is correct, as you can click on Open Source and it will open the correct file.
For simplicity of explaining my issue, consider the following scenario. In my workbook "Corn Production Summary.xls_" I link to 2 source files: "Iowa.xlsm" and "Nebraska.xlsx" (Note: The extension of the summary file doesn't matter. This error happens regardless of what the summary is.)
When I open "Corn Production Summary" I am prompted to update values. I select Update and the file refreshes and recalculates appearing to have updated all values (i.e. no error messages). However, the values from Iowa.xlsm did NOT update and there was no error message indicating that the values didn't update.
To confirm this, I go to Data>Edit Links>Check Status in "Corn Production Summary" and I see that Iowa.xlsm has the "Error: Source not Found" error. I click on Open Source and once the file is open, my data in the summary file will update.
One work around was to do the following process (with the summary file closed):
1) Iowa.xlsm and Save As Iowa.xlsx (removing macros if needed)
2) Save As Iowa.xlsx as Iowa.xlsm (overwriting the file that is currently there and readding the macros)
3) Open the summary file and both Iowa and Nebraska work just fine now.
There are a lot of files like this, and because Excel doesn't prompt us that it isn't really getting the values from these certain .xlsm files we would have to search in "Edit Links" for each file to make sure that they really are updating.
I have small bit of import code (below), that I am looking to modify. The data that I am importing is for an inventory tool that determine optimal on hand quantities and alerts to any issues. In the past there had been one inventory source (one .csv data file). So I populate that to one sheet and modify the data on that sheet. I now have multiple data sources that I need to address.
There are two things that I would like to add/be able to do.
1) I would like to add a dropdown or set of multiple buttons to the popup window that says "Select the OnHand Report". Previously I only had one report source which I posted to sheet "orow0205". I have 2 other data files now that I have to import and they need to go to sheets "orow0206" and "orow2144". I am grabbing the data the same way on each sheet so that doesnt need to change I just need the option on the pop up window to determine the sheet name I want the import to go to.
2) The files that come from the sources above have a file name like "20121213_00000_groupstatistics.csv". Where the first eight digits represent the date the file was generated. If possible, after I select the sheet via the popup solve above, I would like to have the date populated in "MM/DD/YYYY" format in the last column of the imported data (the same date for each row of data imported). The file imported has no date data on it and can represent any day (which is why I am not using some form of TODAY formula).
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".
Now iam Working in excel 2003, I got a Requirement that, After Downloading datas From SAP, It Directly Stored in Excel Sheet , Using tht Sheet1, I need to rename all the Filenames at a time, Is It possible, Any code is there to rename,
From SAP to Excel Sheet Datas are Like this in Sheet1,
I'm trying to print out multiple excel sheets in which it asks me if I want to save the changes or not every time. I have macro settings set to low so I always accept the macros, if I don't have them set to low I'm always asked the question of whether or not I want to run the macro for over 20+ files. Anyone ever had similar problems when printing multiple files?
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.
I keep getting an automation error in excel 2010 when I click on the button that executes the macro. Excel crashes when the box appears. There is no code in the error box. Why I get this error message.
I would like a macro to be able to save 26 tabs within the one document to individual PDFs.Preferably I would like to be able to specify each time exactly which tabs get printed, because often I don't need to print all 26, just the first 10 or so.I would like each PDF to automatically be named with the value in cell E10 of each tab.E10 already has a formula to create its final value. It references cells from other tabs within the same document. Hopefully the fact that this cell has a formula in it won't affect my ability to use the resulting value as a 'save as' reference?I would like it if the PDFs save to the same location as the Excel sheet from which they're generated is located. The location of the excel sheet will change every three months, so I'd prefer not to specify a location with a specific filepath, as it will have changed by the time I run the macro again.
I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.
On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells
On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells
D4 & D5 E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42
It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead
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.

I have a folder that contains around 45 excel files, each of these files contain a tab called "corp val". (these files change name month to month e.g. Report June, Report July etc)
I am finding on a monthly basis i need to go into each of these excel files and copy the data from the "corp val" tab into a summarized spreadsheet - which i then use the data for various things.
Just wondered if there was a solution to this or will it always be difficult to copy and pasting all the data i need. I am not in anyway an advanced excel user, I am guessing this might be some form of macro in which case I am maybe better to keep doing it the way I was as I am not literate in macros.
I would like to know if there is a way to modify multiple excel files in a folder. What I need to do is hide various columns, adjust margins, cut and paste certain columns to a different position, and change the page layout. Is all of this possible, or will I need to change each individually? If you need more information, let me know.
I am currently attempting to use an excel macro to allow me to send a list of files to one person. I have managed to create a dynamic list where one sheet of the workbook has the list of files and checkboxes, and as certain ones are selected they appear in a list on the 'front sheet' of my workbook, which has the button to send the email.
My front sheet is set up in a way that in cell B3 I have the desired email address, B4 contains the subject and from B5 to B30 I have the list of selected attachments (although the length of the list obviously varies depending on the amount of files selected, when all are selected the list extends to B30).
I have the below vba code that allows me to create an email with the address and subject and attaches the file address from cell B5, but I would like to attach all the files in the list and am struggling to change the code to do so.
Code: Sub CreateMail()
Dim objOutlook As Object Dim objMail As Object Dim rngTo As Range Dim rngSubject As Range Dim rngAttach As Range
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
I can add more by creating new ranges (rngAttach1, rngAttach2, rngAttach3 etc) and setting these to their respective locations but if, for example, only two files are selected, the list only covers cells B5 and B6, so when the macro looks up the file directory in B7 (rngAttach3) it returns an error because obviously there is nothing for it to find.
I have attempted to compile a loop and change the code to the version shown below but am having no luck.
Code: Sub CreateMail()
Dim objOutlook As Object Dim objMail As Object Dim rngTo As Range Dim rngSubject As Variant Dim rngAttach As String Dim iLoop As Long
I would like to build an index sheet from multiple sheets in a folder(directory). Let's say I have a folder with sheetA.xls, sheetB.xls and sheetC.xls. I would like to automatically create an "index" sheet that lists the sheet name and info from cells B2 and cell C3 all on a single row. So my index sheet might look something like this:
sheetA Portland Oregon sheetB Seattle Washington sheetC Reno Nevada
The script below scans through a specified folder on a network and scans every xls file inside that folder for a value. When it finds the spreadsheet which contains that value (a policy number) it outputs some of the data from the matching file and also provides a link to the sheet in question.
It worked perfectly until I saved, exited and re-opened the file and now I am getting a 1004 run-time error every time I try and execute the script.
I cant for the life of me work out a cause.
More baffling, the wording of the error says that the file 'R:DirCancellations.xls' could not be found.
At no point is a file called 'Cancellations.xls' specified. Why has the script decided to search for a file called 'Cancellations'?

I've been using a macro successfully for the last couple of years, but this morning when I went to use it, it decided to fail. I have a workbook which contains various spreadsheets. The macro that has failed performs the following tasks:
1. It copies a list of email addresss from an external workbook to a sheet in the current workbook (still works) 2. It copies the referral sheet I want to send to a new file, and saves it with an appropriate filename to an appropriate folder (still works) 3. The macro then creates an email with a standard subject line, attaches the new worksheet and emails it to each of the addresses as above (broken)
The error message is from Microsoft Visual Basic. "Run-time error '1004': Mail system failure. Check your mail installation."
I'm guessing there is a setting somewhere in Excel that has changed as part of an update.
I've been through a number of the options in the developer menu to remove any obvious restrictions (& reopened excel afterwards), but so far it hasn't resolved the problem.
For what it's worth, here is the macro code.
With Application .EnableEvents = False .ScreenUpdating = False End With Run "PullInSheet1" Dim oldbook As String
In case you're wondering about the pullinsheet code, I'll add it below - but I probably grabbed it from this forum a couple of years ago (like some of the above) & just made some changes.
Code: Sub PullInSheet1() Dim AreaAddress As String '''''' Sheet11.UsedRange.Clear Dim ClRange As String ClRange = "= 'L:ADMINEMPLOY SERVICES" _
There are a couple of things I've wanted to do to improve the macro, but I couldn't justify the need to spend time working it out (since writing spreadsheets isn't really my job). Since it's broken at the moment, I can...
1. I'd like to create a subject line that reflects the name of the person being referred. For some reason though, anything other than text in the cell reference caused an error for me. eg, I tried using concatenate to create my subject line, but it didn't work.
2. I'd like the copied sheet to contain all of the formatting of the original sheet. Presumably there is a paste option that will do this and I just picked the wrong one.
The mailsystem we use is Groupwise 8. I couldn't find any settings in that program that have been changed, or that I could change.
I should change the extension from xls to xlsx in the code since I'm using Excel 2010 (but changing it doesn't fix the problem).
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 would like to use FileDailogFolderPicker object to prompt the Excel User (me!) to browse to the location of the folder which is required to execute the code below; at the moment I have to change the file path in the VBA code each time I run the macro. The code is run on a Click Event button at present.
