How Do I Extract Data From Multiple Workbooks Using VBA
Oct 29, 2009
I am trying to create functions in VBA and I need to extract data from multiple workbooks. For example, is it possible to sum data(numbers) contained in multiple workbooks using VBA? If so, how do I create that function in VBA.
I have a folder with an unlimited number of Excel Workbooks. Data within workbooks are in same format - 3 columns of data. I would like to extract the Data in the range (B55:B70) for every workbook, transpose the data and append by rows into one worksheet.
To be clear - I want to take data range B55:B70 from first workbook,transpose and put on first row - take data range from second workbook, transpose and put on second row, repeating for unlimited number of times...
I jst need to console data from different workbooks to one worksheet. There are 30 workbooks & each workbook contains one worksheet name as Data. The work i am currently doing mentioned below step wise
1) Open workbook 2) Apply filter on whole data 3) Select dates from "J" Column (E.g 02/10/2014 to 02/20/2014) 4) Then Copy whole filtered data 5)Paste into New workbook 6) Open another worbook 7) repeate Step # 2,3 8)Then paste whole data in below the first data New Workbook (In which we have paste the first data below that i will paste this data)
These steps i have to do manually it takes almost 1hr daily After pasting all 30 workbooks data in one workbook i have to make pivot of it & sent it to my Manager. What i need
I jst want a excel macro that will ask me date range from which i have to pull data from all 30 workbooks.
Once i gave date range will jst click on button say extract or pull. It willl console whole 30 workbooks data from the given date range in a one worksheet.
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.
Not all workbooks will come in at the same time, but I would like, as we receive the workbooks, retrieve the value from cell H19 from the available workbooks according to the name in column A and place the value in column B.
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.
I have 2 workbooks containg about 600 names and the serial number of the computer they are using. One I keep so I know who has what machine. The other is created automatically by a service we subscribe to. This workbook is loaded with errors. Machine costs being charged to the wrong people.
They both contain last name, first name and serial number. Although not in the same columns. With formulas, I have been able to take the serial number from the service.xls and find that serial number in the inventory.xls.
The ultimate goal is this: Take serial number from service.xls and compare it to inventoryxls. If it exist, put the first and last name of the user from inventory.xls onto the service.xls sheet. If it does not exist, then put "does not exist"
I have a worksheet filled with employee data. I.e. EMPLID, COUNTRY, MANAGER_ID, etc. I want to extract these employees into a new workbook (spreadsheet) by the employee's manager. So each workbook would contain every employee row data for only one manager.
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).
Iím not to sure this can be done but I will try and explain what I would like. I have a Master workbook simply called Master.xls (Price) and I need to extract data from 3 other workbooks, these workbooks are in a folder called INFO, the workbooks are called, Summary.xls,(Sheet1) Supplier.xls (Sheet1) and List.xls.(Sheet1). I have attached sample files of all the workbooks, the original Summary has about 2000 colums and the original List.xls has about 20000 columns.
The only workbook i would like to open would be the Master.xls, would it be possible to exract the data without opening the other workbooks? or at least to look like they are not opened. On the Master.xls
When the data button is clicked I would like the following info displayed, if possible. A3 info comes from looking at Summary.xls columns B & C and comparing it against List.xls columns A & B, when a match is found in either of the columns, the code in List.xls C column will be displayed in the Master.xls A3 cell ...........
I have created a workbook for a co-worker. The way it works is data comes from an outside source with customer names in Column A and their Account Reps in Column H. This data is pasted into a template that I created with a very simple macro recording that filters on each Account Rep and is copied and pasted each into a different workbook. Then I had to go through each workbook (because of the info being sensitive) and create a macro that deletes the unwanted data because when the data is pasted it transfers all of the data and you can unfilter to see the full sheet.
I know there is a better way to extract data on each change in column H into a new workbook. Does anyone know how to do that? Another issue is the original data is not very clean so there are blank rows in the list. For Example:
I am working with 3 different worksheets. Lets say they are named A, B, and C and for simplicity, and let us say they are all stored in C:worksheets (they are actually located on different network drives). I would like for excel to open and extract data from the Machine_List page in each workbook. Then output it to the current sheet that I am working with and just add the data to the next available empty cell on row A. They are also headers on each sheet so I would like to delete it or start copy from cell A2.
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)
I track distribution using 1 workbook for each sales rep. Each workbook has a separate worksheet (scorecard) for each of their locations showing which of our products are used in that location, for various functions. Each of the locations has a segment (bar, nightclub, casual dining, etc.), and a class (AA, A, B, etc.). All of the scorecards are identical, and are in the same file folder on our shared drive.
Location A Class:AA Segment: Sports Bar Rep: John Smith
Product: Product X Product Y Product Z Well: 1 0 0 Back Bar: 0 1 0 Cocktail Menu: 0 1 1
I was unable to find an HTML maker so this is not an actual sample but what I'm looking at. The above data indicates that for location A (Sports Bar, Class AA), Product X is used as the well, Product Y is on their back bar and their cocktail menu, and Product Z is not used at this location at all.
I need to set up an analytic workbook where I can sum data based on multiple and grouped criteria, and for multiple reps ie- display a scorecard that shows totals for nightclubs and sports bars, class AA, A, and B, for a particular rep; OR display a scorecard that shows totals for nightclubs, class A for a group of reps. Ideally I would like to do this using drop down menus that allow the user to select multiple criteria in each of the drop downs, having the data auto-populate based on those selections.
I have three source workbooks that needed to be consolidated into a master workbook pasting the data with values & formatting.
The Master workbook also contains 6 additional worksheets that link to the data pulled in from the source files. My question is how do I write the code so the source files populate the master in a specific order. For example, the 3 source files are named "Central" "NED" and "WEST" and I need them to populate the master workbook in that order.
This is the code I am using to consolidate the data:
Option Explicit Sub ConsolidateSheetsFromWorkbooks() 'Author: Jennifer Starr 'Date: 7/12/2013 'Summary: Open all files in a folder and merge data (stacked) on all
I have an excel sheet which has 200 fields and 1000 rows, now I want to make summary of them, so I need some fields to be extracted from those 200 fields to another sheet on multiple criteria, Like Category, First Name, Last Name, District, Village, Date and etc.
I am running into at the moment is that where the Select Case is checking if the sheet name starts with the initials and project number, it doesn't seem to recognise if it is correct (and therefore perform the actions). I have stepped through the code and when I use the immediate window to manually check:
? ws.Name Like "TA0632*"
I get True as an answer, but the code goes on to the next case as though it is false. Here is the code I have so far, which I'm sure can be trimmed down loads:
Option Explicit Dim currCell As Range Dim c As Long Dim r As Long Dim rng Dim ws As Worksheet Dim skp As String Dim LastColumn As Integer
Sub Breakdown() Dim t t = Timer For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Sheets Debug.Print "Current sheet is " & ws.Name CheckSheet...................
I have a folder which contains a number of Workbooks which were all built using the same template, therefore the layout and formatting is identical in each one. Cells A1:B15 of these workbooks contain information which I am attempting to extract.
I have been asked to build a worksheet with two cells for user's input. The first cell is the 'Directory location cell' and the second cell is the 'Policy Number Cell.' The policy number is found in Cell A2 of every workbook.
The idea in mind is that the user inputs the directory location in the first cell, the policy number they are searching for in the second cell and then excecutes the macro. The Sheet would then return all of the valuable information from whichever workbook contained it.
I think I need to compose a macro which trawls through the folder specified in the 'Directory Cell,' opened every xls until it found the policy number which matched the value in the 'Policy Number Cell' and then returned the cells A1:B15 into the new Sheet.
I have a lot of paperwork that needs to be entered into Excel. When I finsih entering the data, there will be many workbooks containing many different worksheets. I know how to summarize each workbooks but is there a way I can add specific columns in each of those summary sheets into a new workbook? I guess the question is can I sum data from different workbooks into a new workbook?
I've got a variable row length list of data, 24 columns wide with column headers in row 7 and file descriptions on the above rows, that I need to split up into seperate Workbooks dependant upon values in the last column, all rows with the same value in column X form the same new Workbook, which I can then SaveAs with a name associated with the value. I've seen a similar thing done to sheets on the forums by using the Advance Filter and I would adapt that to copy each created worksheet to a new workbook, but a) this seems inefficient and b) my unique values are too long to name sheets from.
Engineering has given me 300 separate 2003 Excel Files. Each of these individual Excel files contains data I need for creating a list I have been tasked to do. Cells E3, K1, A6 and J2 in each Excel file contain the data I need for my list. Rather than manually data mining 300 separate Excel files for data I need from Cells E3, K1, A6 and J2, can this be done automatically with a macro?
I'm seeking for the Macro to automatically OPEN each individual Excel file, then copy the data from Cells E3, K1, A6, J2, and then paste this data into a list file with four columns. After the pasting is done, the macro will close the source data Excel file and move on to the next one. In the future I will have to repeat this task with probably 400 individual Excel files. Therefore, it will be great if the Macro didn't care how many Excel files required data mining.
Creating macro which can read data from one/or more sheet and copy and paste it into another sheet, by matching up column A & B and Row 1, between the both sheets.
I have monthly data stored in each sheet, named as May, June, July etc. I also have sheet called 'monthly' within the same workbook, where I would like to extract all monthly totals, from sheets july, June etc, into the 'Monthly' worksheet by matching up its names from Column A and B and row1 header with each sheet's names.
The june,july worksheets have date1, date2 etc, columns with data and after those columns, there are the 'bs, rm, cm, cd, cl' columns, and these are the columns, I would like to use, to extract the numbers from and paste in the 'monthly' worksheet.
My current issue, is that the 'bs, rm, cm..etc' columns are not fixed, due to the 'date1, date2 etc' columns can vary, for each month.
For this current task, I was using a formula as shown below to extract the values into 'monthly' worksheet, however due to unfixed columns for 'bs, rm, cm... etc', I could not get the formula to work for the 'july' and 'Aug' months (i.e. extract data into 'monthly' worksheet, from the june&aug sheets).
I would like to request, if it is possible to use the formula below to re-create macro which can carry out this task, by extracting all the values from 'june, july, aug etc' sheet, into the 'monthly' sheet, at once.
I have attached a sample workbook with example of data layout and desired output shown in monthly worksheet.
I have a spreadsheet containing a factory's operational data, with each machine in the factory being represented by its own worksheet.
The sheets all have the same structure, with each line of data representing a shift (we have 12-hour continental shifts, so column A of all the pages has the date in an standard format, and column B has either "d" or "n", representing the shift). Various datat is documented on each machine on a shift-per-shift basis.
What I need to do is figure out how to do a macro that extracts all of the lines on all of the machines' worksheets that pertain to a particular shift (for instance, all of the lines where column A read "14-Mar" and column B read "d"), and export the values of the entire row to another worksheet, creating a shift summary on one page.
To do this, I would like to make the date and shift user-definable variables that appear at the top of what would become the summary sheet, and have a button that activated such a macro at the top of the page as well.
I am trying to create a macro to gather a data range from multiple files placed a folder and combine them into a single worksheet which can be easily totaled. I've used some similar code I did for another project to gather the data. It starts by listing the file name and then the data set (About 40 cells) below the file title. However, the data sets from each spreadsheet are filling themselves into a single column one after the other, whereas I would like to have them populate one worksheet's data in each column.
I have two workbooks with similar columns (note: both workbooks may not have all the same columns, but for the same columns, the names are written identically in both workbooks). I'll walk through what's in each sample workbook I've provided and what I am hoping to accomplish.
Transfer Rows1: This workbook contains multiple rows of data for one company or ID (For example, Client "A Co" has 4 rows of data.)
Transfer Rows2: Contains some of the same columns as workbook 1, but not exactly in the same order.
What I want to do is take all the multiple row data for an ID in Transfer Rows1 and put the information as a single row in Transfer Rows2. So, Client "A Co" in Workbook 1 has 4 rows, but in Workbook 2 will have 1 row. It's matching columns, essentially. Columns that are present in both workbooks should have the data filled out in only ONE row in Transfer Rows2.
As far as cost is concerned, Cost A in Transfer Rows2 is just the sum of all the Cost A's for a particular ID Number in Transfer Rows1 (same for Cost B and Cost C).
I also want the installation date in Transfer Rows2 to be the latest installation date for each unique ID from Transfer Rows1.
Also, a particular client can have multiple CID's. This appears in different rows in Transfer Rows1, but should appear in one row, multiple columns (again, for each unique ID) in Transfer Rows2.
Notice, the column 'Products' in Workbook 1 is not in Workbook 2, and that's because each row for column may have different information and thus I would not be able to transfer it into a single row in workbook 2.
TransferRows1 is where I am right now and I have filled out TransferRows2 to indicate what I hope to accomplish. I am posting here because the actual set I am working is fairly large, on the order of ~ 35,000 rows and need to automate this process using code instead having to copy and paste thousands of times.
I'm trying to copy data from multiple spreadsheets into one summary spreadsheet. Each spreadsheet that I'm looking to copy data from is stored within a folder, named as a date, within a sharepoint site.
Each report is named as 'Report to PMT from Vauxhall', 'Report to PMT from Ford', 'Report to PMT from Fait' etc etc. and the format of each report is exactly the same.
From the attachments you will see that I'm trying to copy the following from the Report to PMT from Vauxhall to Summary Report:
Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell D11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell E11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell F11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report Report to PMT from Ford Cell D11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report Report to PMT from Ford Cell E11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report Report to PMT from Ford Cell F11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report etc. etc.
