I have an excel spreadsheet that has a list of pathways to different folders (ex. Q:TechnicalY001) in each row. I want a macro that will search each of the folders I list in a range of cells and return the most recent file by the Date in the filename:
The macro would return the most recent file in Y001 and dump the filename into cell B1. Then it would return the most recent file in Y002 and dump the filename into B2.
After I have all of the most recent filenames, I want to be able to search each of those files for data in certain cells and then dump that data into the spreadsheet. The cells are always going to be the same in each file.
I am doing a project for work at the moment where by I have to manipulate a report compiled by an external program and do various bits and bobs to it. Trouble is, the other program creates a new version every time it runs the report (i.e filename.1.xls, and the next day filename.2.xls, and so on). Is there any way of searching the folder these files are in to find the newest file and select that one as the one to open and manipulate? There will be no files other than these in the folder.
I want to sort a column in Excel 2007 which is having dates. Normally, we use oldest to newest or newest to oldest option in sort & filter. But i am unable to find this option in my excel sheet. how can I find this option in Sort & Filter.
Note: I have imported this data column from Access 2007
Firstly, I have attached a file called test2 which has two sheets within it, one called list and one called 12345. This is for demonstration purposes only as in real life these are both separate files.
What I am trying to do is create a history in the file called list that extracts certain data from the file called 12345 and places it in a more user friendly format. No problems with the formulas etc, just a case of a few ifs and buts.
My real problem lies in the fact that file 12345 is only one of hundreds of files and in order to create the history, I have to repeat the process on all the other files, so that the list grows as I copy the data. Again for demo purposes, the file "list" sits in the C root ie C:list and the job files sit in C:files*.*.
Is there a way to automate the process so that formulas or VBA residing in the file "list" searches through the C:files*.* and populates the list as it runs through them.
By Code I am trying to SaveAs the present Workbook : Only in the same directory as the present Workbook- but with a different file name. The new file name would be :"the Filename of the Active Workbook" + " ("D9") of the Sheet("ADMIN")". This macro will only be run from the Sheet("Admin").
I have a spreadsheet, where the corresponding invoice number is located in column I.
All the necessary invoices have been scanned in as pdf's in folder Y:FinanceSalesInvoices.
The question is, can a code be written to say in column Z, that a hyperlink be created to that particular invoice. For example, in cell I2, it would have Invoice1, then in cell Z2, it would have a hyperlink of Y:FinanceSalesInvoicesInvoice1.pdf.
I have a workbook that is produced by some other application that names the file "FAMMToday_#.xls"
Where # increases from 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 and so forth until all the analyst are done with adjustments. so the directory can look like but doesnt always go to five and nor is it limited to five. "FAMMToday_1.xls" "FAMMToday_2.xls" "FAMMToday_3.xls" "FAMMToday_4.xls" "FAMMToday_5.xls"
Basically what I want to do is to create a button which when pressed opens a file picker (I think its called this way) and the user should find and select a pdf file. And when he does that he clicks "OK" and this file is copied to specified folder.
The script below writes a ".csv" file to the same directory that contains the workbook the macro, "foo" is run from. I'd like to change the script to always write the file to a separate directory which is: "c:etcupload".
I've got this code that will copy data into my worksheet from the most recent .IRP file generated on my C:/ drive. Along with copying the data to my worksheet, I'd like to have a copy of the IRP file copied to a folder on my L:/Drive.
In the code section I've commented out the code that allows the data from the most recent file to be copied to my worksheet. I found code that supposedly will copy a file to a new directory. I want to combine this into my code to allow both to happen. Here's my attempt.
In my search I found several example similar to what I need, but nothing I could adapt to filt my needs, (at least not wim my limited skills).
Here what I need to do:
I have multilple Excel files in a directory. (M:/Archived PO Responses/Domestic). On a daily basis, these files are processed via VBA, and deleted after processing. What I need to do is, prior to processing and deleting these files, create an ongoing log of the filenames in that directory.
The macro would open an Excel file named "Processed Orders.xls", which is stored on the network drive "M:". It would then append all of the filenames in the directory mentioned above to a sheet named "Processed Orders" in that workbook, below any filenames that already exist.
I have some code that copies a worksheet and saves into a new workbook and saves into a specified folder and renames the new workbook.
It is all working fine however it is saving to my desktop and not the specified directory. I know there is a lot similar out there and i have exhausted my google skills trying to find the similar format to the one i am after.
Sub MonthlyReset() Dim sourceSheet As String Dim clearR As Range Dim newFile As String
I need a macro to loop through a dir and the sub directories to find xlsm files, when it finds one open, go to the sheet named data, look at c1 and if the value is between 12.1 and 13.4 then i need it to write the file path, filename to a1 in my excell sheet and then write the value from c1 in the original file to A2 of line in my excel sheet.
I have hobbled pieces of code together without any good results.
I have recorded the below code that functions fine from my computer. My issue is that I need to export/import this macro to other workstations who may have the save to location mapped to a different drive letter. Is there a way to replace the drive letter with the URL (SharePoint)?
ChDir "E:3. CRQsRemedy Dumps" ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="E:3. CRQsRemedy DumpsToday_CRQ_8Dump.xls" _ , FileFormat:=xlExcel8, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _ ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False Save To Directory: \server_1Dir_1Dir_2FolderToday_CRQ_8Dump.xls Permissions are in place.
I need to copy the names and date modified from all pdf files in a open directory. The directory name will change month to month. I will copy the names into an excel workbook that will be opened as well called Shipped starting in sheet1 cell P2
Using VBA, can anyone please advise if it is possible to change the name of a large number of files in a directory. I want to get each file name as a string, truncate the first few characters, then change the name to the new filename, all without opening any of the files whose names are to be changed.
1. In centain directory I have xls files where name of each file starts from "HR" string, eg. "HG_Control Mike.xls", ora "HR_Control Mark.xls". 2. I have a master xls file where I want to start a macro that will open each of xls "HR" files and copy selected rows to this master xls workbook (need to write this one too).
Problem is that opening of every "HR" files suposed to be protected by password. Users will be adding new xls "HR" files to the directory so I will not be able to change macro everytime new xls is added. So, I need to make a macro that will generate password base on xls "HR" file name and then I will use this password to protect this files and open them by another macro.
I need some VBA code to cycle through each and every folder and file in a given root directory and write the file name string to a cell. (does not need to look at the content of sub-folders only the names of all objects sitting directly under the given root.)
I have numerous sub directories, C:/Jobs/12500 – 12599, C:/Jobs/12600 – 12699 etc, within these directories exist spreadsheets with file names like 12675.xls (in this case it’s in the “12600 – 12699” directory). In my open spreadsheet, in cell A1, there is a job number, say 12675. I want to find and open the existing 12675.xls spreadsheet. If the spreadsheet does not exist, a template (Costing.xlt), in a fixed directory, is opened and then saved, in the correct sub directory i.e. C:/Jobs/12600 – 12699/12675.xls. I am now using the following code, but the directory is fixed. How can it be modified to work with variable directories?
On Error Resume Next Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Spreadsheets" & Range("A1") & ".xls" If Err <> 0 Then Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:SpreadsheetsCosting.xlt" ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "C:Spreadsheets" & Range("A1") & ".xls" End If On Error Goto 0
