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.

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:-


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.

Open File In Directory With Part Of Filename As String

Mar 11, 2014

I have a Workbook "forecast.xlsx" and several Workbooks which have a individual Number in the Filename (E.g. "3960........xls", "3961.......xls etc.) in the same directory as "forecast.xlsx" + projects"

Now, I would like to browse through "forecast.xlsx" in column H, searching for hyperlinks. In Column H are these Projectnumbers located which are used in the filenames above. Whenever the Cell cointains a hyperlink, following should happen (that far i managed it by myself):

- Store the Cellvalue in a String Variable
- Go to the Directory this.workbook + projects
- browse this folder, searching for a File which contains the stored string in its filename
- open the file
- copy a range
- close file
- This.workbook.Activate
- follow the Hyperlink which has been stored as String before
- paste selection
- continue browsing through column H, looking for the next hyperlink.

I have a VBA which runs bugless, but it copies the wrong range, but to the correct destination.

See the code below:

Dim cell As Object
For Counter = 1 To 1000
Set cell = Worksheets("Projects overview").Cells(Counter, 8)
If cell.Hyperlinks.Count > 0 Then

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 can’t get this to work….

Extracting Sub-folder From File String

Apr 13, 2007

I've got a host of files within a host of directories, e.g:

c:ContractsJim BobJim Bob Site.xls
c:ContractsJane JonesJane Jones Place.xls
c:ContractsJeremy HillsHills House Lvl 1.xls

I'm working in VBA to try to extract the site name from the file string. Unfortunately there is no other reliable location where I can find an accurate name of the site, so it needs to be taken from the second subdirectory. So I'm using the following code to get the file location:

Sub FilePicker(fileToOpen As String)
ChDrive "C:"
ChDir "C:Contracts"
fileToOpen = Application. GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="PPM Files (*.xls),_
*.xls", Title:="Select a PPM Scope File", MultiSelect:=False)
End Sub

This returns a string along the lines of "c:ContractsJeremy HillsHills House Lvl 1.xls". From this string, I need to isolate the string "Jeremy Hills".

Extracting Data From A Website

I am trying to extract data from a website:

I looked at the source code of the website and realized that if you notice (above) that the variables listed in the link (i.e year, month, day) are exactly what i need to change in order to get the data for a specific date. how can I accomplish this using VBA. so say I have in on an excel sheet year in column A, month in column B, and days in column C (time interval is constant so we don't have to worry about stime and etime). and i run the macro and it loops through each row taking year,month,day for all rows and saving the data as .csv or xls files?

Extracting Data With The Criteria Specified?

Aug 4, 2014

I have created a table of data with Serial No, Name, Age & Common Friends field. Now i need to extract all the data (complete Row item) where the condition matches a certain criteria. Basically a formula or function which will say what are the names of people along with all other corresponding fields (Age & Common friends) who have common friends as "Jill" or "Jack" (For example). Note : I cannot use filter option and copy/paste the filtered data in new sheet as i am working with thousands of data items. Due to the nature of report software/data extraction report, multiple data items appear in single cell only (Multiple friends name appear in single cell).

VLOOKUP Not Extracting The Data

Jan 7, 2009

I have a problem with VLOOKUP not extracting the data I need from 1 workbook.

I want to populate 4 different sheets in the "108" workbook with data from the "1st" workbook. I've uploaded the workbooks to show the formulas I have already. The data in "1st" workbook changes daily and can have upwards of 2000 rows. I've simplified the list for the example.

In the "108" workbook I want to fill in the first three columns with the formula down to about row 500.

I've tried different formulas to do this using EXACT, MATCH, and VLOOKUP but to no avail.

Extracting Form Data

Nov 5, 2008

I have many company-specific Excel files containing given data fields such as company name, company address, commodities supplied, etc. An example is attached here under the tab "Company Profile". I would like to extract all the information from the different "Company Profile" Excel files and put it into a more usable format, as shown in the attached tab "Results," where the company data runs horizontally across.

I tried to record a macro to do this ("CompanyProfile" -- included in the attached file), but I am not able to make it do what I want it to do. I also do not know how I may be able to capture the information in the "check boxes."

Data Extracting...Not Counting.

Feb 1, 2010

In one cell i have a dropdown. Depending on what is in that dropdown, i want a table of data to be written. I'm not too hot with pivot tables but my understanding is that is predominantly to do with counts. This is more of a multiple vlookup i guess. I want to pull from a list of data (3), all the cases matching the dropdown (1) and deposit into a list (2). What is the best way of doing this? I don't want to use filters. See attached.

Extracting Data Using INDEX

Aug 4, 2009

I am using INDEX functions to extract up to 2 items of data which I now need to extend to upto 6 items.

The spreadsheet shows a list of staff initials and a day by day work rota of (M)ornings, (A)fternoons, (N)ights and (O)ffs. What I am needing to do is to identify only those staff who are rosterred Off and to place those intials in the two sets of colored cells in rows 5 and 7.

The attached spreadsheet, Tester1.xls shows the 2 existing INDEX functions in use. These can only detect the first occurrance of "O" and the next. I now need to be able to extend this functionality to cover all "O"'s in both section 1 and section 2. So, eg if 12 Aug is input to B15, I can only select IB and GG, but I now want to be able to see MG in the next blue cell.

Extracting Data From Chart?

Nov 11, 2011

how I can extract data from a non-linear line graph to be used in a calculation. The graph will be made based on user input data and the values to be obtained will not be entered, but read off the graph. Again, it is non-linear, and while it could be log-normal data, it may not be any particular function. Basically, I want the program to read off an x-value for a particular set of defined y-values.
