Extracting Data From File Names

Oct 4, 2013

We use a bunch of equipment at work that spits out a pdf file that is going to consist the results of a particular test.

Those files are named in a unique format. It looks a bit like this:-

EH_CM42_EB0C8105G00_CPS41D_F30C3105E00_2013_09_10_08_39_25.pdf

Out of this file name it consist of the serial number (F30C3105E00) of the equipment which is the first set off italics/bold and time(08_39) and date (2013_09_10) this test was performed.

So My question is there a way or a vbs macro or anything that will be extract these three different information and save them in three different cells on the spreadsheet. BTW Also I should mention that these files are going to be stored on a network drive

PS- The only way I have figured out to do this is to create a .bat file that runs the dir command and saves it to a text file.

Excel 2010 :: Create Master List Worksheet From Lists Of Names On Several Worksheets

Jun 6, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)

I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.

I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.

I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.

I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.

Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?

Extracting Data From File In Directory And Extracting Filename

Mar 20, 2014

I have a directory folder with an active workbook and another workbook id like to copy data from. The Following macro opens up a file in the same directory, copies some data and pastes it in the active workbook. However with this code I have to specify the filename, 'Data.xlsm' in the example code. I would like it to copy data from the only other workbook in the current directory WITHOUT having to specify the name in the code, so just opening it up no matter what filename it has.

In addition I would like to extract the filename from the workbook im copying data from and paste it into the activewoorkbook in sheet 1 Cell A1. I had a look at getopenfilename function but cant seem to make it work for my purpose.

Feb 18, 2008

I need to extract the month name from a cell. E.g In one cell I have a time stamp, which comes up in this formart.

Cell A1 is "5/30/2007 10:03:37 AM". Basically i want cell B2 to say "May". Please note this format is using the american date format where the order is month/date/year.

Is there a way to do this? Remember one cannot look at just the first digit as what happens for months 10 & above? At the moment I do this manually.

Table Names Revert To Cell Names When File Is Reopened

Jan 4, 2013

I have a worksheet with many tables that I use in formulas.

I like tables for a couple reasons, one being the ability to insert/delete rows without affecting the rest of that worksheet row.

Also, automatic copy of formulas/formatting is great.

But, what I really like about tables is the ability to use the naming conventions in formulas.

Problem is when I save this worksheet, after I close it and open it back up, all table references in my formulas have been converted to cell references.

Example:

Code:

=IF((SUMIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,">"&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&tblOSSRV[Min Order Cost])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],""&tblOSSRV[Min Parts Per Line])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],"

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names

May 1, 2008

Two part question:

1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?

2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).

Extracting Names From A Column To Another Sheet Based On Criteria

Jul 6, 2014

I have a column containing names, blank spaces, numbers, a bunch of miscellaneous things. However all I want to do is extract only names, into another sheet, and not the numbers, blank spaces, etc. Youi'll see what I mean when you open the attachment. Offset isn't an option because the names don't appear in the column in an organized fashion.

Extracting Data From Inventory Report With Unknown Names

Apr 24, 2009

I would appreciate some pointers on how to write a function(s) or macro to do the following in Office 2003:

- I get a weekly report (from Quickbooks) in Excel format which shows inventory usage.

Showing the relevant sections:

Col D Name
Col O Qty
Col Q PxQ

The report also throws out Total is Col D, but only for Col Q, not Col O (which is needed)

So, R5 thru 7 may show Apples
And R 11 shows Total Apples

Then R13-14 may show Oranges
And R15 shows Total Oranges.

The report has about 400 lines currently, and about 50 items......

Adding Row Of Data From One File To Master File

Dec 30, 2013

I am a lacrosse coach and am keeping track of key stats that our team values that cannot be found in the box score (ex: 'Secondary Assists'). To do this we have created a group of rather simple Excel spreadsheets to keep track of these. We have one master file will all the total data from the season and 10 or so secondary files for each game that we played. To this point, I have been adding the data from the different game files to the master file manually and it is very time consuming.

My question, is it possible to copy a row of data from one of the secondary files and have excel add that data to the existing data in the master file?

Moving Data From A Monthly Worksheet To A Master Worksheet

Apr 9, 2014

Each month I get a report that is formatted by the customers and this sheet never changes. The problem is that the master sheet my job uses is not formatted this way. The master workbook has several sheets that breaks down the data from the monthly sheet. Instead of having to enter the data manually I'm looking for a way to export the data from the monthly sheets into the master workbook. As I stated the sheets are all the same but come from different providers and all contain the same amount/style of data.

Extract Data And File Names From File In Folder And Paste Into One Sheet?

Jan 13, 2013

The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.

how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?

It would make it easier to track the data in column B.

VB:
Sub CopyFromFile()
Dim fPath As String
Dim lRow As Long

[Code].....

I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.

The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.

Extracting Value From External File

Jan 29, 2004

I have been trying something like this before, i could not get it fixed. Let's give it another go:

I have a number of files in a specific folder. I need to extract values from cell Sheet1!G42 out of [b]every file[b] in this folder. Problem that occurs, is that I do not know how many files are in this folder, neighter do I know what the filenames are. I need some magic to perform extraction of the desired values.

As for the files in the specified folder I have this VBA code, that suits my needs just fine:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim fileList() As String
Dim fName As String
Dim fPath As String
Dim I As Integer

This code will display all found files, including their path in column AD. (as plain text)
[b]Question that remains:[b] how am I to fix a formula In (column AE) that will extract the value found in Sheet1!G42 of each file? This must be very easy, but i cant get this to work.
