Filtering And Then Extracting Filtered Data From Closed Workbook

Nov 12, 2013

I am looking for a quicker way to filter and extract data from a closed workbook. My current code opens the file and then does the necessary filtering before copying into a separate workbook, however, the workbook I am opening is huge and takes several minutes to open.

Is there any way to speed things up a bit?

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"T:8. CaseBlocks Data for ReportsStephanieNo_Acknowledgement_Received.csv"
ActiveSheet.Range("a:a").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=" 10000"
ActiveSheet.Range("H:H").AutoFilter Field:=8, Criteria1:= _
ActiveSheet.Range("IJ:IJ").AutoFilter Field:=244, Criteria1:="NULL"

I am using the following code to attempt to pull data from closed workbooks. Something in the code is not working and i can't figure it out. ARG is resulting in the path i need with the exception of TOTAL which is the sheet i need the data from.

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.

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)

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

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.

Extracting Data From Workbooks In Single Folder Using User Made Button

Jun 28, 2014

I have the following macro in my spreadsheet to extract specific data from closed workbooks in a folder. It works great but what I would like to do is make it so I can just open the spreadsheet and press a button I create that will extract the data from the folder that it lies in.

Currently I have this specific spreadsheet just sitting by itself and I manually work out the address of where my spreadsheets lie and add that address into the code and run the macro. I find it a little cumbersome and me not knowing a hell of a lot in VBA don't know what the command is to make it pull the data from the folder that it resides in. Once I do this then I can create a button and assign the macro to it. Can change the code to be able to extract the data from all of the workbooks in the folder that the macro enabled spreadsheet lies?

Referencing Many Closed Workbooks

Nov 3, 2009

I have a workbook for each day recording energy usage from 52 meters,

I need to collate the data on a single workbook.

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

#VALUE Error When Using Sumif On Closed Workbooks

Jul 15, 2009

I have this formula in a excel file called test.xls which does a SUMIF on file "Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls". It works fine when I have Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls open at the time. When I close it the file displays a #VALUE in the cells

My formula is:

=SUMIF('G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!$B$7:$M$7,Cover!M$85,'G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!B9:M9)-'Page 15'!E9

This is really annoying as the formula works, and you need to open the linked file to display the results, otherwise you get the #VALUE. Is there anyway around this and why is it doing it??

I got a problem that I cannot seem to solve, I want to retrieve values from 2 closed workbooks, I have with the help of this forum managed to create some VBA that retrieves the values from one of the workbook. What do I need to think of,to be able to put in the values from the second spreadsheet without the values disapearing from the "master" spreadsheet?

The code so far:

Sub ValuesfromClosedWorkbook()
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)

. Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value

wb.Close False
Set wb = Nothing

Reference Range Of Cells For A Log From Closed Workbooks

Nov 20, 2012

I've been trying for a while not to reference a range of cells in closed workbooks to create an ongoing automatic log.

I've attached a test log with the details required and the cells are staggered, I have been using the formula;

='NETWORKPATHFOLDER[121113 12.42.xls]Enquiry Form'!$G$1

then the cells are (SAME PATH) J1, A5, A7, A9, A11, A13, A15, A17, A19, A21, A31, B31, E31, J31

and the attached test will placed then in that order under their respective headers.

So, all in all, is there a VBA code where it can run it from closed workbooks in the order above?

Extract Single One Cell Value From Multiple Closed Workbooks

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.

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.
