Extract Data From Closed Workbooks

Dec 9, 2007

I tried using Dave Hawley's code, but I can't get it to work. It works if the source workbook is open, but I get all "#REF" results if the source workbook is closed. Sales Order Import is the target worksheet for the data, inside the open workbook where this code is located.

Set wks = Worksheets("Sales Order Import")
With wks. Range("A56:Z100")
.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF('C:DdriveMy DocumentsProjectManagementManagementReport[AU0009099.xls]Sheet1'!RC="""",NA(),'C:DdriveMy DocumentsProjectManagementManagementReport[AU0009099.xls]Sheet1'!RC)"
'Delete all Error cells
On Error Resume Next
'.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, xlErrors).Clear
On Error Goto 0
'Change all formulas to Values only
.Value = .Value
End With

The .SpecialCells line is commented out, because it error messages (that's my next problem to tackle).

Extract Data From Many Closed Workbooks For Calculations

Sep 4, 2006

I have a program that calls the regress function multiple times (sometimes more than 1,000) per run. With each call to the regress function, a new workbook is automatically opened. For each new workbook opened, I am storing the contents in a workbook array called Models so I can later sort the workbooks based on the value of R squared. The program often has to open and store hundreds of workbooks before the sorting can take place so as to consider every possibility. Once the sorting has completed, I close all of the open workbooks except for the two containing the largest value of R squared. Due to the massive amounts of workbooks getting opened and then later closed, it takes about 30-40 minutes to run my program.

I want to know if after a new workbook has been opened and its value stored in the Models array, can I immediately close it and then later open only the 20-30 workbooks I really need to speed up run time? This way I wouldn't have hundreds of workbooks open at one time. Here's some code to help:

'This function will run regression stats for all possible combinations of models
'with choose variables
Private Sub Run_Stats( Combos, ByVal Size, R_Squared, Adj_R_Squared, Std_Dev, Cp_Stat, ByVal Dep_Var, ByVal NumIndepVar, ByVal Observations, ByVal Choose, Reg_Labels, ByVal Residual_Sum, Models)

Extract Single One Cell Value From Multiple Closed Workbooks

Mar 23, 2012

I have a little over 100 workbooks which I will receive back from customers and in column A of another workbook I have the names of those workbooks.

Not all workbooks will come in at the same time, but I would like, as we receive the workbooks, retrieve the value from cell H19 from the available workbooks according to the name in column A and place the value in column B.

I've looked into Indirect, but with this function the workbooks have to be open. If one of the workbooks has not been received, I would like for the macro to skip this file name. All files are .xlsm.

The file will be in the same folder as all the individual workbooks.

Column AColumn BFile NameH19 ValueDallas.xlsmSan Diego.xlsmArgentina.xlsmParis.xlsm

Get Data From List Of CLOSED Workbooks Using VBA

Aug 4, 2009

I have one Master Sheet that fetches information off of 30 other workbooks. The data is uniform accross all workbooks.

As of right now, I have code written that will update the master, but ONLY if the other workbooks are open.

Is it possbile to get the same data off of closed workbooks?

Here's what I'm using now:


Sub Master()
Dim Reps As Integer
Reps = Range("Reps").Column
Dim LastColumn As Long
LastColumn = Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column


Variable "List" is the list of Workbook names that I'm using.

The code "Windows(List).Activate" is what I'm using to get the data from the other workbooks, but this only works when the workbooks are open.What can I replace this code with?

Import Data From Closed Workbooks?

Mar 5, 2012

I am looking to import a sheet into an opened workbook. I have found a code from this URL [URL]....but I can't manage to get this done correctly. I want to copy the range "A1:Z1000" from the "Source" sheet to the target sheet "Div_P&L" (which will be opened when the macro is run) located in another folder.

Source address : "H:P&LYE TempDiv P&LP&L Report 020312.xls" , sheet("Source"), data = range("A1:Z1000").
Target address : "H:Yield EnhancementPandL.xls" , sheet("Div_P&L") , data = range ("A1")

Line Workbooks(PandL).Activate => Run time error 9, Subscript out of range.

I have tried the getvalue function which works, but it takes a long time. So I want to use an ADO way.


Sub importdata()
ImportRangeFromWB "H:P&LYE TempDiv P&LP&L Report 020312.xls", "Source", "A1:Z1000", True, "PandL.xls", "Div_P&L", "A1"
End Sub


Sub ImportRangeFromWB(SourceFile As String, SourceSheet As String, _
SourceAddress As String, PasteValuesOnly As Boolean, _
TargetWB As String, TargetWS As String, TargetAddress As String)
' Imports the data in Workbooks(SourceFile).Worksheets(SourceSheet).Range(SourceAddress)

Lookup Data In Several Closed Workbooks

Jun 2, 2006

I would like to create a sheet that looks in a certain folder with several .xls files and pulls data from certain cells ( not necessarily next to each other) automatically with out opening each workbook in the target folder.

Each workbook is laid out the same, based on a template, and emailed to me each day (I'll actually get 3 or 4 a day, one from each plant) So the number of files will grow every day. (I've read about a way to automatically save the file based and the date, hour, and minute, and email the file when a certain condition is met, and plan to use this technique in the template.) So the file names should be consistent.

As an example, I would like cell A1 to contain the date from the oldest file and increment row by row as the files come in, automatically. Then the cells B1 on across would contain data from certain cells within the .xls file with that date and time.

Every time that workbook is opened it would update to include data from any new files in the specified folder.

I've done some basic vlookup formulas to look at one particular workbook but not several.

Pull Data From Closed Workbooks

Aug 1, 2007

How do I update changes to a linked workbook without having to open it? Let's say that I have two workbooks, "workbook1" and "workbook2". I want to copy data entered from workbook1 to workbook2 without opening workbook2. I know that I can just open workbook2 so that the formula will work but if I do that I'll end up opening up to 3 workbooks, which doesn't really give you much security.

Macro: Extract Data From Closed Workbook

Nov 17, 2006

I'm trying to create a macro that will allow me to extract data from another workbook (whose name and location is listed in a defined cell) and populate a range in my new sheet with this data.

Ideally, I want to be able to do this without actualy opening the source file, but any means to this end would be great!

I know this was possible in Lotus 123, but have not yet found a way to do it in Excel.

Extract Dynamic Data From Closed Workbook

May 11, 2007

i have this code that could extract out Data from many closed workbook. I am extracting data from 2-3 thousand files and the Data in those files are rather dynamically positioned.

For e.g. My vba codings will extract data from cell B256 of the closed workbook.

Sometimes, the data might not start from that cell which my vba would still extract that non-relevant data.

Is there anyway i can modify the codings to search for the required data and extract instead of extracting it dumbly?

Sub getINFO()
Dim lCount As Long
Dim wbResults As Workbook
Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook
Dim rCell As Range

VBA Macro To Pull Data From 3 Closed Workbooks And Filter

Dec 13, 2013

What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).

I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D

Extract Information From Closed Workbook Representing Data From A Country

May 22, 2013

I'm having a problem with getting a result from another workbook. The purpose is to extract information from a closed workbook representing data from a country (ie US.xlsm, UK.xlsm) into the open one (summary). I want to count the number of results in a column which are above a certain amount (in this case 100).

So this is my coding for getting this result

=SUMPRODUCT(--(('C:address[US.xlsm]Worksheet name'!$E$2:$E$30000)>100))

Which works no problem for getting the number of results in the E column above 100. my issue is that I want to be able to change the name of the country in a cell, and then get the results automatically from the relevant workbook. I've been using CONCATENATE for these purposes and EVAL (from MOREFUNC)... and I get #REF!

So if I split up the above coding into two cells "=" and "SUMPRODUCT(--(('C:address[US.xlsm]Worksheet name'!$E$2:$E$30000)>100))" (just to keep it simple) and then use CONCATENATE to combine them in a cell. Using EVAL on that cell gives me #REF!

I've tested SUMPRODUCT with EVAL and CONCATENATE on formulae like the one above which do not link to other workbooks, and they seem fine. and SUMPRODUCT and linking to a workbook also works fine in the first example.

So the problem is somehow coming from the combination of SUMPRODUCT, EVAL and accessing an external sheet.

Import Data From Several Closed Workbooks To A Single Sheet In An Open Workbook

Aug 3, 2009

I need to import the data from a specific sheet (same named sheet on all closed workbooks) to a sheet in an open workbook. All the columns are identical in every workbook but the number of rows is variable, so the data from each subsequent workbook must be appended to the end of the current data.

Whenever a button is pressed, this macro will clear the sheet, then import the data starting in A3. The workbooks are in different folders but they all have the same name, so some sort of explorer window will probably be needed to actually select each file.

Compare Workbooks And Extract Data

Jul 3, 2007

I have 2 workbooks containg about 600 names and the serial number of the computer they are using. One I keep so I know who has what machine. The other is created automatically by a service we subscribe to.
This workbook is loaded with errors. Machine costs being charged to the wrong people.

They both contain last name, first name and serial number. Although not in the same columns. With formulas, I have been able to take the serial number from the service.xls and find that serial number in the inventory.xls.

The ultimate goal is this:
Take serial number from service.xls and compare it to inventoryxls.
If it exist, put the first and last name of the user from inventory.xls onto the service.xls sheet.
If it does not exist, then put "does not exist"

Macro To Extract Data From 3 Workbooks With Execptions

Feb 23, 2010

Iím not to sure this can be done but I will try and explain what I would like. I have a Master workbook simply called Master.xls (Price) and I need to extract data from 3 other workbooks, these workbooks are in a folder called INFO, the workbooks are called, Summary.xls,(Sheet1) Supplier.xls (Sheet1) and List.xls.(Sheet1). I have attached sample files of all the workbooks, the original Summary has about 2000 colums and the original List.xls has about 20000 columns.

The only workbook i would like to open would be the Master.xls, would it be possible to exract the data without opening the other workbooks? or at least to look like they are not opened. On the Master.xls

When the data button is clicked I would like the following info displayed, if possible. A3 info comes from looking at Summary.xls columns B & C and comparing it against List.xls columns A & B, when a match is found in either of the columns, the code in List.xls C column will be displayed in the Master.xls A3 cell

Extract Data By Type To Separate Workbooks

Mar 12, 2008

I have created a workbook for a co-worker. The way it works is data comes from an outside source with customer names in Column A and their Account Reps in Column H. This data is pasted into a template that I created with a very simple macro recording that filters on each Account Rep and is copied and pasted each into a different workbook. Then I had to go through each workbook (because of the info being sensitive) and create a macro that deletes the unwanted data because when the data is pasted it transfers all of the data and you can unfilter to see the full sheet.

I know there is a better way to extract data on each change in column H into a new workbook. Does anyone know how to do that? Another issue is the original data is not very clean so there are blank rows in the list. For Example:

CustomerTechnology SegmentOpportunity Dollars ($)Opportunity StatusAction Item(s)(ST) or (LT)Due dateAcct RepCustomer 1Action 1ST3/30/2008ACCustomer 2Technology 1Action 2LTTBDACCustomer 3Technology 2$10,000FindAction 3LTTBDACCustomer 4Technology 3FindAction 4LTTBDBHCustomer 5Technology 4FindAction 5LT1/31/2008BHCustomer 6$30,000Action 6LTTBDBHCustomer 7Action 7LTTBDMJCustomer 8Technology 5$10,000QualifiedAction 8ST3/1/2008MJCustomer 9Technology 6QualifiedAction 9ST2/28/2008CGCGCustomer 10Technology 7$18,000FindAction 10ST3/1/2008CGCustomer 11Technology 8$10,000QualifiedAction 11ST3/30/2008BHCustomer 12Technology 9FindAction 12LTTBDACCustomer 13FindAction 13LT3/15/2008AC

I am working with 3 different worksheets. Lets say they are named A, B, and C and for simplicity, and let us say they are all stored in C:worksheets (they are actually located on different network drives). I would like for excel to open and extract data from the Machine_List page in each workbook. Then output it to the current sheet that I am working with and just add the data to the next available empty cell on row A. They are also headers on each sheet so I would like to delete it or start copy from cell A2.

The only way i can think of doing it is to use the INDIRECT function but this will not work on closed workbook.

I need to sum the contents of B1:AW1 on the closed workbook and input that into a cell on the new sheet.
then repeated for B2:AW2, B3:AW3 up to B52:AW52 once this has been done the process needs to be repeated for 31 workbooks.

The end product should be 31 Columns (one for each day ini the last month) and 52 rown (one for each meter) and the total daily consumption for each meter (sum of column B:AW)

Working With Closed Workbooks

Dec 2, 2006

i can use application.username to get activeuser name and have excel check this and close the workbook if its not me, what i want to do is have excel check lets say cell A1 in workbook SECURITY.xls stored in C: and if it says Craig Shippey leave workbook open if not close the workbook, why i said working with closed workbooks is i dont want to have any indication on where its checking from,

1. i have a workbook in which i want an Workbook_open macro lets call this workbook staff.xls
2. the staff.xls should read cell A1 from C:security.xls into a variable called Check
3 if check craig shippey close workbook without any prompt

all this should be done without anyone knowing that a macro opens another workbook, i know if the user disables macros then it will still open, but i will just set their Macro Security level to low so they wont be prompted, i will also remove that item from their menu bar, if they cant see it they wont be able to alter it back
