How Can I Merge Two CSV Files
I have two CSV's which are updated on a regular basis.
CSV Master - contains about 23,000 rows at the moment and will continue to grow.
CSV Master - does have a header row
CSV Master has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column A so all unique ID's start at "A2"
CSV Master - contains 31 columns ("A through to and including AE") this is a fixed figure.
---- Then I have ---
CSV Extras - generally contains about 200 rows and its unlikely it will ever be more but is contents are different every time it is used.
CSV Extras - does have a header row
CSV Extras has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column "A" so all unique ID's start at "A2" and these ID's are a common denominator with both sheets.
CSV Extras - contains 44 columns (last column is AR) which is a fixed figure,
CSV Extras - columns "B up to and including AE" are all intentionally all blank fields.
--- Hope that explains where I am, this is what I need to do ----
I need to be able to look up the ID's (that are in column A in both CSV's) and create a single CSV. In my mind that is a Vlookup of some sort but I can't get it to work
I want to open CSV Master and then, If the ID exists in CSV Extras then fetch all the data in columns "AF to AR" and add it to the CSV Master.

Merge Many Files Into One
1. I have a master file (master.xls), currently empty
2. I have 80 excels files (all look a like but their worksheet name are different)
3. I would like all the data from these worksheet to be appended to master.xls with a click of button.
4. I tried using some codes from this forum but they did not work.

Merge Files ...
I have two files that need to be merged together (file1 & file2). These two files have three columns each. One column on both files is the same. This column is labled "phone number". One file has more lines the other has less.
I would like to make a macro that will check file1 against file2. If it finds a phone number the same it will cut the whole line and append staring in column 4 to same line in file1.
Merge Two Data Files
Right now I need help mergng 2 files:
#1 One is a txt file with emails
#2 the other is a .csv excel file which contains several fields: email, name, address, etc
Basically what I need to do is to create another .csv excel file that contains all the emails in file#1 that are also present in the file #2 plus their corresponding additional fields ( name, address ) etc
Merge All Files In A Folder
I haven't really been able to find a total solution to an issue I have had for a while and hope someone can help.
I have a series of workbooks that I create from Crystal reports, I want to do the following after clicking a button on a form:-Open up two files in a folder with similar names (IL-BA, IL-BA-19), both have the same headers
Open a Third file, this is my 'Master File' and is in a different location, this has the same headers
Copy from the two files onto 1 sheet on my master file (excluding the headers)
Close the first two files without saving and move them to a 'Done' folder
Save and Close the Master File
Move onto the next set of files in the folder (NE - BA,NE - BA - 19) and do the same again, until all the files in the folder have been completed.
All the files in the folder have different data, so have different headers, but the Master file for each set will always have the same headers, (if that makes sense), but they are specifically named, so cycling through the named files in the folder, merging the two together.
My main problem is that I can't seem to find all the code i need, i can merge the two files, either in different sheets(which i don't want), or with the headers for each file still attached (as i can't seem to find a robust way of removing them).
Merge Same Column From Multiple Files
I have hundreds and hundreds of excel files. but in every file, there is the same column lets say column D which has all the information I want. In stead of opening hundreds of worksheets and copying and pasting over the data into a new sheet. Is there a code I could write that would open all these files and copy the data from the same colum over into my new sheet? so column D in the first work book will copy to colulm A in the new work book. Then colum D in the second workboko will copy to the new worksheet in column B ect ect ect.
Name/address Files Merge&purge Duplicates
I have two name/address lists in separate Excel workbooks. I need to merge and eliminate duplicates by name. One has single name field in format "Lastname, Firstname". The other has a single name field in "normal" format (First and last name). Ultimately I need to end up with two name fields, First and Last, and this I can do.
The problem is in identifying any possible duplicates between the two lists. Why? Because the first list will have names like "Smith, Robert" and occasionally maybe "Smith, Robert J.". The second list will have names like "Dr. Robert J. Smith Jr. PhD", as well as possibly "Robert Smith" or "Dr. Robert Smith".
Using Text-to-Columns will still require a lot of reworking, because the last name won't always be in the same column, depending on whether there's a Dr. or Mr. or middle initial and so forth.
I've looked into the LIKE( ) function which holds some scant hope, but I don't think it will happen for me either.
How I could compare "Robert Smith" to "Robert J. Smith" or "Dr. Robert Smith" or "Dr. Robert J. Smith Jr. Phd"? Imagine all names in column A.

Macros To Clean, Summarize, And Merge Reaction Time Data Files
I need to use to prepare for analysis a large set of individual participants' Excel data files collected using a psychological reaction-time experiment (a modified Stroop task). This experiment was created using a program called Superlab by Cedrus, so I posted an inquiry at the Superlab forum [url]. Their tech support suggested I might need to use macros in Excel but couldn't offer further assistance. I'll try to briefly describe (a) our Stroop task, (b) the operations I'm trying to carry out, and (c) the format of the individual Excel files,
Our Stroop task: The participant gets some instructions and practice trials, then a series of stimulus words are presented one word at a time in the center of a computer monitor in one of several colors. Word presentation order is randomized for each participant. The participant must press a key corresponding to the color of each word as quickly as possible. For each keypress (including the spacebar, pressed on instructions screens), the reaction time (in msec) is recorded in their Excel spreadsheet under the 'Reaction Time' variable. The 'Error Code' variable indicates whether the participant pressed the correct (C) or incorrect (E) color key in each trial. There are 8 types of words for a total of 48 trials. (Actually, 4 sets of emotion words and 4 sets of control-animal words, each set composed of 6 words each. The task basically measures how much peoples attention is captured by emotionally relevant cues in the environment.)
For each participant's data, I need an efficient way (macros?) to:
(1) clean it [i.e. discard or ignore the instruction & practice trials as well as trials where the participant was too impulsive (reaction time < 100 msec), too distracted (rt > 3000 msec), or gave the wrong color response (Error Code= E)]
(2) determine whether enough valid trials remain for further analysis (>39 trials), and if so:
(3) calculate a mean reaction time score for each of the 8 word types [where denominator for each word type is based on # remaining (non-discarded) trials for that word type]
(4) merge each participant's summarized data as single rows in a common spreadsheet (for importation and further analyses in SPSS), like this:
ID#...... MeanRTW1.......MeanRTW2...... (etc. for word types 3-8)
Excel File Format: I've attached a sample file, and here's a simplified overview of a spreadsheet (irrelevant columns and some rows removed). First the ID number is recorded (e.g., 393E), then some unnecessary junk (exp name & date, intro, practice, instructions), then data for the 48 actual trials of interest:
3 Wed Jan 1, 12:33:00 2008
6 Trial Name.....Trial No..... Error Code.....ReactionTime
7 introduction..... 1................C............561243
8 practice.......... 2................C............... 2062
9 red-worried........14.............C................1001 (*the first practice trial)
10 (9 more practice trial rows, deleted here)
20 red-chicken......19..............E............... 1205
* (46 more actual trial rows, deleted here)
-The variable 'Trial Name' indicates nominally what stimulus was presented for each trial.
-The variable 'Trial No.', indicates the unique numerical marker for each stimulus word. (It probably should have been labeled 'Word Type'. It doesn't reflect the order of stimulus presentation. E.g., the word "tense" is always 'Trial No.' 32 for all participants, regardless of when it presents.)
-A subset of actual trial words (e.g., worried) were also used for the 10 practice trials. Thus, the 10 practice trials must first somehow be discarded or flagged to be ignored before calculating average reaction times for the remaining 48 actual trials.
Search For & Merge List Of Text Files Named In Worksheet And Paste In A Specifc Cell
I did a search for " import text" and found some promising leads, but not exactly what I was looking for. I have tried running macros and looking at the code but don't know how to pass the file names from the the D47:D147 range to VBA(see below). I saw elsewhere that Excel can be told to create a temporary batch file, and that the batch file with the command "copy text1.txt+text2.txt+text3.txt all.txt" for example could be used to merge the 3 text files into a file called all.txt. I don't however know how specify the path where copy starts, to tell the batch file to look in subdirectories or to pass the file into Excel. I've posted this question yesterday to Yahoo Answers http://tinyurl.com/omers and http://tinyurl.com/rfww9 without much luck.
Below is the macro I would like:I have text files whose names are found in the range D47:D147 although without the appended ".txt" extension. The sheets can only contain one name sometimes, but on average 8 to 10, so in the average case only cells D47:D56 would have entries.The text files are found in the say H:Textfiles directory or subdirectories.I would like Excel to find these files, concatenate them with a row between each file, and paste the results into cell K251.Finally, the text import wizard should be used with a space as a delimiter and the last 3 columns (it's sometimes only 2) of the concatenated file, not imported.
Merge Files? (add Data From One Spreadsheet To The Appropriate Places On Another Spreadsheet)
Often I need to add data from one spreadsheet to the appropriate places on another spreadsheet. For example:
Sheet A has 10,000 records with these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment.
Sheet B has 5,000 records these fields: id#, GPA, college major, type of degree.
Some of the records in B contain information for the same id#'s as sheet A. I want to add this information together so that a Sheet C will have these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment, GPA, college major, type of degree.
Transfering Files From Lots Of Files To One Single Exel Master File.

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files
I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.
1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.
2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it
3. Open the file in the associated application
4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file
5. Repeat steps 2-4
DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems
I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.
with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.
I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.
Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only
I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.
I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?

Saving Comma Separated .txt Files As .csv Files
I have a large number of .txt files that are comma separated files (but not saved with the .csv extension) that I need to convert to files with the .csv extension.
Is there an easy way to do this for all files in a given folder? Ideally, the files don't even need to be opened as they are are quite large in size (70MB+) and there are a lot of them (500+).
Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them
I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.
how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)
Convert Multiple Files To Text Files
I have about 100 Excel files in one folder that need to be saved as text files. They can keep the same name, but simply need to be converted to text files. I'd like to use VBA for this and I can't find examples that do exactly that...or ones that my limited knowledge can handle.
Excel files exist in C:Source and ALL of them should be saved as text files in C:Destination. Maybe there is an easier way, but I thought for sure there was a routine I could use.

Search Folder For Files Containing "Temp", Delete Files
Is there a code that will search a pre-determined folder for all .xls files containing the word "Temp", and deleting those files?

Merge All Workbooks In One
I have 5 worksheets, representing data from 5 days, M-F. On a weekly basis I open all 5 files and manually copy, and paste all into one large weekly file. Does not take very long so I am probably just being lazy but if I could find a simple solution to merge all 5 into one quickly it would be great.
The one solution I was planning on implementing was to cycle through all OPEN workbooks, copy the data into a new workbook, and close each workbook as the copy and paste is done. This will work but to me its 'dirty'. Each workbook only has one Worksheet.
Merge Cells ....
I have sheet and this kind of data in two colums:

2 means a new row.
1 How can
2 I do it,
3 maybe with
1 Again new row.
There are over 30000 rows in my sheet. So there must be way to do it some other way than manually with copy-paste method.

Merge Cells ..
I have a rather large amount of data that comes to me very frequently in a bit of a mess and I have a need to somehow do the following:
I need to look for a cell that has date text in the format of 3 characters for the month followed by a four digit year i.e.Apr 2009 or Sep 2009 along with one marked YTD.
The cell then needs to be merged with the 2 adjoining cells to the right.
This heading structure repeats itself frequently over about 700 hundred rows so it will need to repeat itself until all date looking cells and YTD's have been merged with the 2 adjoing cells.
Merge & Wrap
I have a need to merge cells in a row and there to be more than one line of data in the merged cell. I also format it to wrap text. But I found that when doing this with merged cells it won't automatically resize the height of the row to accomodate the wraped text. It can be done manually, but this is a pain.

"okay, A3 in DBL has the data 00-120-01, but there exists no data next columns over...but oh look, A2 in Book1 does, let's fill in that missing information!" so now it'll fill in the bullet points, brand, segment, etc."

Add New Line, Merge Two Tables
I have been working on a project for a few days now, it is almost finished but I am struggling with creating macros. I will send a file in the attachment and I will tell you what I need to accomplish :
1. I need to add to every sheet a button " add new record" - this button will add a new line and copy the formulas and dropdown menus + formatting from the last line , but not the actual data. The numbering will be 1. 2. 3. etc .. in the first column.
2. I need to create in the Price offer sheet the last line that will sum up the total weight and the total price of all the products ... this line will be always the last and the "add new record" lines will be added above the summary line.
3. I need to create a drop down list in Price offer sheet ( via validation data and Vlookup function) , but the problem is that the source for the dropdown list has to be merged from the data from sheets pipes and others ( name columns) ... the data should be ordered in the ascending order for better seach ( or even better would be to create a search function that will search a record based on input letters in every dropdown menu - I dont know if something like this is possible in excel )
VBA To Merge Four Workbooks Into One With Header Row
I have a client that I process their data every Monday and am already using some VBA code on it. I receive their data in four workbooks that have the same name every week.
and the files are put in the same subdirectory every week:
What I'd like to do is run some VBA code that would automatically look in this subdirectory for the four files and merge the rows of account data (rows 2 - the last used row and columns A - S) from these four workbooks into one workbook and have the header row from any of the four workbooks (they're all the same) placed in the new "merged" workbook at row 1.
Could anyone provide to me the VBA code that would do this?
i need to create a macro that is dynamic.
i have attached a example on here.
My main idea is that i have to select the rows/column to compare that they are the same for the selected column then concatenate and merge.
In my example, i wan Column B be like Column D... but in the end i wan it to be like Column F if they are the same.
Macros: Merge Into One Template
The company I work for have several templates in the map xlstart.
They want that all the macros that are present in these templates can be merged into one template.
Is it possible to do that without using VBA?
Because they want a solution that everyone can use without knowing a thing about VBA.
