Excel 2010 :: Update Values From And To Closed Workbook?
Mar 7, 2012
I am having a workbook (say a.xlsm) which has value entry fields and some values are given to another workbook (say b.xlsm) which has some sort of calculations and the result is projected back to the book a. most of the time book b will be closed. I am using Excel 2010.
I opened and saw that the result which is calculated and projected from workbook b is not getting updated. I opened the workbook b and saw that the values I have entered in a has not been updated in b. note that I am opening one book at a time and I do click on update links when I am asked.
I have code that links my existing workbook to a closed workbook. It works as planned but it goes to far. In my first workbook, the one containing the code, I may have up to 30 worksheets. If I am on Sheet5 I may need to run the vba code to update cells X:X only on Sheet5 but instead it updates cells X:X on all Sheets in the workbook. How can I keep this from happening?
I have asked this on another forum but it seems to be a difficult thing, perhaps impossible thing to keep from happening.
For worksheets 3 though to worksheet 9 and only columns D, E, F, G, H , I and J, and only rows 4 through to 35 auto update from a source workbook
Note 1: - as you will see in Wookbook A in the attached demo test zip file that row range 4 to 35 varies on each worksheet as the number of towns columns varies on each worksheet. So on one worksheet it might be row 4 to row 12 requiring update whereas on another worksheet it could be row 4 to up to row 35.
Note2: –the source workbook is a closed /non active workbook on another server in my network –path is X/sourcefiles/weeklydate/countfile.xls. In the source workbook the source is sheet 1.
Only update when there is a match of string of the place location name which are ALL listed in column C of the source worksheet –matched to that of string place location names in workbook A in their respective worksheets 3 through to worksheet 9. Then when there is a match – copy the content of the cells that correspond to the place location names in the source workbook (countfile.xls) from the columns D, E, F, G, H, I, and J.
Note 3. The way in which the source countfile works is that each week it will be updated with values/figures starting with column D in week 1 and column E in week 2 and column F in the third week and so on…..In the first week only column D will have values/ figures and the other columns will be empty – and second week only columns D and E will have values/figures – to make the code easy it would be OK to copy across the other columns when they are empty – thus leaving the other columns in workbookA also empty. So in week two when workbook A is opened and is updated from the source file with values/figures for workbook A’s columns D and E of worksheets 3 through to 9 the other columns F, G H, I and J on those worksheets would have only be empty cells or just not updated at all –as the source file at that time would have had only two weeks of figures entered.
Also copy across the column headings in row 4 for columns D, E, F, G, H, I , and J as those headings may change as they are dates.
The final bit that is important part of this is that as worksheet A is updated the formula in column K it will need to auto update as well as it is the initial figures in column D minus the figures in the most recent column updated – so if column G is updated today the formula needs to be =D5 – G5 and =D6-G6 and so on whereas when updated next week the formula would need to change to =D5 – H5 and =C6-H6 and so on.
I wrote here a few days ago about an issue retrieving a closed worksheets values and I got help from RoyUK(see code below and link), but for some reason the values are never entered into the open worksheet.
Retrieving From A Closed Workbook Sub FillingSheet() Dim filetoopen As String Dim wb As Workbook filetoopen = Application _ . GetOpenFilename("XL Files (*.xls), *.xls") On Error Resume Next Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filetoopen, True, True) With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1) . Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value End With wb.Close False Set wb = Nothing End Sub
I have a master file with two sheets. I have another input file with only one sheet. Without opening the input file, is it possible to copy the range and paste special values only into a duplicate sheet in the master?
I've recently discovered the usefulness of VB in excel and have managed to write some basic macros that enhance many of my workbooks. BUT, I've bumped into a problem I can't seem to solve. Please help!
I'm looking to import the values in a large range of cells ( 5 x 5000) in a closed workbook into a range that i specify in an open one, where both workbooks are housed in the same directory. I also want to include logic that allows me to move the 2 files to different directories (the names will never change, only the paths) and have the code still work--I believe i'd use relative path references?
I've found lots of snippets of code on the topic but can't seem to get any of them to work. For instance: http://spreadsheetpage.com/index.php...a_closed_file/
Problem is, I'm so new that I don't even know where to begin pasting the code (objects vs. modules, etc) in the VBA editor.
I have 2 workbooks, one containing all my code and userforms and another containing all my data (which is continuously updated/ dynamic). I want to be able to manipulate the data without ever opening the workbook (at the moment I use the open workbook method, but it is extremely slow). I have found some code (Jwalk) which I think meets my needs (and is instant). I have adapted this so it points to a specific path rather than the active path as below etc. but I need to adapt it further so that:
1. When the data is opened it is formatted exactly the same as it is in the original sheet which includes any coloured cells, bold fonts, cell width, height and so on
2. Any changes I make can be saved back to the original sheet in the closed workbook.
3. The data always opens in a named specific worksheet i.e. "TempSheet" which sits in the workbook containing the code (my code is called from a userform within this workbook).
I am still learning VBA and can adapt/write small pieces of simple code, I have tried incorporating the paste special method, but in all honesty, don't know what I am doing and it results in lots of errors. Can anyone help me get this working/point me in the right direction? Also, what does 'Const' do? how do I bring in the data without specifying the number of rows, as this will be different every time?
I want to pull data from closed workbook based on cell values of open workbook of column B and the source file name is on cell J1. Actually I save monthly files and opening balnce of current month should take vakues from previous month file.
Suppose current month is May 2008. Then Column Column D for May month shold take value from column G of April 2008. For simplicity the previous month’s name and thus source file name will be placed on cell J1.
The code should loop from column B of source file and current May 2008 file and should pull values for only those items which are in the current file in the Column B. Thus those products which are deleted or newly added item in the current item should not copied. Though for new item no name will be thre in the source file but for deleted items the item might be there in the source file but the code should ignore those value.
I have an Excel 2010 workbook that is fairly slow to open (10-15 secs) because it is rather formula heavy. This workbook is opened by quite a few different people every day. What I would like to do is to open the file overnight using windows Task Scheduler and to update the file (using a workbook open event macro) and then for the rest of that day whenever the file is opened the formulas do not update until overnight the next day (and so on and so on).
I thought maybe toggling the Calculation Manual off/on? Would this be the best tactic?
Is there code that will take certain data from one Excel sheet to another named file in a different place on the network? Example Copy cell aa47 from "Recent Faxes.xls" that sits in "correspondence" folder. Then paste into cell B25 "Current Documentation.xls" in the "Sales Contacts" folder
I have two workbooks: master and student. I have one spreadsheet in each workbook. Both workbooks contains data in the same range.
master.xls data = B1:B10 (values are integers) student.xls data = B1:B10 (values are integers)
I want to know how to update(add) the values in master.xls with the values in a closed workbook(student.xls). Basically if master("B3") = 5 and student("B3") = 1, it will update the value in master("B3") = 6.
I want to write a macro that will copy data from all worksheets of a specified workbook and copy them into a new workbook.
To give some detail, I receive a report each morning containing failed deliveries. I also export a list of failed deliveries from a system (SAP). These reports rarely match so I must compare the two daily. I do this using INDEX and MATCH functions but now my boss wants all the data in a single report so I would like to harness the might of vba to consolodate all the data in one workbook.
The lists of failed deliveries are contained in worksheets marked mon, tue, wed... so I need to search all worksheets for all delivery numbers and copy all of the data into a new book. This becomes complicated because on Monday there is only one tab marked mon, on tuesday there are two (mon & tue), one wednesday there are three and so on.
I have started on some code but I am getting nowhere fast. I have managed to muster an input box which asks for a date (this will be used to search the file path for a file named "failed deliveries & "mm/mm/yyy")
I have a macro-based employee leave system that works by couting the number of days shaded with a certain colour and thus calculating leave days taken, remaining and entitled... I have a single workbook with multiple sheets for different employees.
However, when I update by using ctrl alt f9, it updates all the other worksheets (ignoring their shading) with the values of the active worksheet! So if I update Peter, who has taken 14 days so far, it will update Liam's sheet too, with 14 days, ignoring Liam's actual shaded days...
How can I update each sheet individually, without compromising the other sheets?
I would like make a cell in a report auto update with the most recent data entered in another cell from an input table either in the form of a formula or code to ensure that the most recent data is recorded and reported.
When I change computers, I have to manually tell each document where to fine the linked document. I want the documents being linked to look for the file path in a designated cell, i.e Cell E3 = "C:UsersOwnerDocuments1-QCDataData Master (QC).xlsm".
Something like ThisWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ThisWorkbook.Range("E3").Value
I have a quantity - thick/dia - width - length fields used as row labels, I would like each cell to have a border, after each update I get negative results to preserve the cell border formatting. Col b,c,d,e continually lose their cell border formatting after updating the data.

I recently switched to Excel 2010 and have a rather peculiar problem.Every week I update a bunch of charts in different workbooks. By update, I pretty much mean just shifting the range over one column or down one row to incorporate newly added data.
So I right click the chart, select "Select Data", update all the Data series ranges and then I click on the Horizontal (Category) Axis Labels button "Edit" to update the Axis label range.
I do all that then press OK. The data series have updated, but the axis labels haven't. So then I do the procedure again for the Axis Labels, hit OK again and voila: It worked.
But I ALWAYS have to do this procedure twice. It will NEVER update the axis labels the first time around. Even though the little preview window below the edit button show the labels correctly.
I'm doing a Vlookup and when I copy down the formula Excel asks me to update the values by opening a new document. But this I can't or don't want to do - but I can't get rid of the box that asks me update the values with a new file.
I have a requirement there is a excel sheet that has multiple sheet with application names , cntact names , phone numbers & email address and this gets updated by me often. I need a code that can put the application names and email address alone into an access database and that should automatically get updated whenever changes are made in the excel sheet.
I have created a table in Excel 2010 (pls see attached table named post.xlsx).
Then copied the above table into PowerPoint 2010, using "paste link" (I tried to attach the PowerPoint file but the system says "invalid file type" and I cannot attach it).
I have received income data for another month - the new month is 13 and the corresponding new income is 100. I typed 13 and 100 into the Excel table post.xlsx and thus extended the table by another column.
Then I went back to PowerPoint slide, then right clicked on the table there, then clicked "update link".
The newly-typed column in Excel table is not get updated in PowerPoint table.

Basically, I'm looking to populate the blank cells in the PartNumber column (Sample_List) by looking at the data in Column1, Column2, Column3 then going to the Master_List, matching up Column1, Column2, Column3. The PartNumber value in the row with the matching values would then be copied to the Sample_List.
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
