Extract Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One Worksheet
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...

Extract Data Groups Into Their Own Workbooks
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.

Compare Workbooks And Extract Data
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"

Extract Data From Closed Workbooks
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 By Type To Separate Workbooks
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:

CustomerTechnology SegmentOpportunity Dollars ($)Opportunity StatusAction Item(s)(ST) or (LT)Due dateAcct RepCustomer 1Action 1ST3/30/2008ACCustomer 2Technology 1Action 2LTTBDACCustomer 3Technology 2$10,000FindAction 3LTTBDACCustomer 4Technology 3FindAction 4LTTBDBHCustomer 5Technology 4FindAction 5LT1/31/2008BHCustomer 6$30,000Action 6LTTBDBHCustomer 7Action 7LTTBDMJCustomer 8Technology 5$10,000QualifiedAction 8ST3/1/2008MJCustomer 9Technology 6QualifiedAction 9ST2/28/2008CGCGCustomer 10Technology 7$18,000FindAction 10ST3/1/2008CGCustomer 11Technology 8$10,000QualifiedAction 11ST3/30/2008BHCustomer 12Technology 9FindAction 12LTTBDACCustomer 13FindAction 13LT3/15/2008AC

Extract Data From Many Closed Workbooks For Calculations
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)

Extract Data From Different Workbooks To Current Sheet
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.

Macro To Extract Data From 3 Workbooks With Execptions
I’m 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

Extract Data From Multiple Sheets Into One
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

Macro To Extract Data From Multiple Worksheets
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.

Pulling Up Data From Multiple Workbooks
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.

Data From Multiple Workbooks Into 1 Workbook
I have 2 Excel templates using lookups to create customer quotations. When complete a macro is run which strips out formulas and links to data.

I would like to record certain data from the finished workbook in another workbook on the server e.g. quote number, date, customer, total value, follow up date.

Is it possible to include another macro that records data in certain named cells to a separate workbook when the file is saved?

Copying Data To Multiple Workbooks
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.

Data Mining Multiple Workbooks
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.

Loop To Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One
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.

Amend Chart Data In Multiple Workbooks
In my VB6 project I need to loop through several Excel Workbooks with the same chart format and amend the chart data as required from time to time. There are 2 charts in Sheet2 of every workbook. With the following coding, I can only update the chart in the first workbook but not the one in the second workbook and the rest. It appears that there will be no further updates after the first workbook is closed.

Exporting Data From Multiple Workbooks To One Workbook
I do environmental testing for multiple hospitals and surgery centers. I've created a master workbook in excel 2007 that includes about 7 sheets. Each sheet is for account info, testing areas, billing, and reports. In the testing areas sheet, I've used a formula to compute in column F a return date for each row based on when the area in that row was tested AND based on that area's yearly schedule (quarterly, semi-annually or annually). The date tested info is in column E of each row and the yearly schedule is in column H of each row.

Every client has their own workbook created from the master workbook template. I would like to export the return dates data in column F of each workbook into a single workbook that would tell me what testing I have to do for each client in any given month so I don't have to go to each workbook and make a list manually. So, not only the date would have to show, but also all the other info in that row (acct number, location, charge, etc). BTW, the data in this testing areas sheet I want info from is not in a "table"...just in cells.

Accessing Data From Worksheets In Multiple Workbooks
I have read all the rules, and the guidelines for writting a thread title, and can only hope that my title meets those criteria (Dave, if they do not please do not ban me). I am fairly new to VBA, I have been able to edit other peoples code, and have created a few macros myself, and although I think I know how to use a loop and arrays, I sometimes lack some of the basics, this may be one such case. That said here is the problem I am facing.

I am creating a database, and as such I am sent several workbooks, with each workbook containning several worksheets. Within these workbooks, the naming convention of the worksheets is consistent, though each workbook may contain different number of worksheets. (the name of the worksheets represents a specific size/format).

What I have is a "Setup sheet" that I would like populated with all the data from specific worksheets in the various workbooks. So I would need to be able to get the macro to check all the workbooks, and if it finds a worksheet entitled "Sheet B" (for example) that it copies all that data into the "Setup sheet", and progresses onto the next workbook. I have the loop working and am fairly confident on this side of things, though where I am struggling is getting the Macro to know what worksheet to look at when going through the workbooks.

I need the macro to be fairly dynamic in which Worksheet it looks at so I don't want to simply hardcode the Worksheet name into the macro, rather I would like to be able to specify the worksheet name based on a cell value in the "Setup sheet". so going back to my earlier example if the cell value in the "Setup sheet" = "Sheet B" then the macro should get data from the worksheets entitled "SheetB" in the workbooks, if the cell value in the "Setup sheet" = "Sheet F" then the macro should get data from the worksheets entitled "Sheet F".

Consolidate Data From Multiple Sheets & Workbooks
I have been working on this project for some time and still haven't got anywhere with it. What I am essentially trying to do is create a master summary workbook where by you press a button to activate a chunk of VBA that will grab the same range of data from multiple workbooks but also multiple sheets in those workbooks, only problem is the number of sheets in each workbook are constantly changing so I need first find some way of accessing a closed workbooks, then I need a way of looping through a segment of code that will look into approximately 10 workbooks all with a different number of sheets and taking a fixed range of cells out of each sheet and for every workbook make a new tab and paste the information in that tab then move onto the next workbook, find the number of tabs (missing out the first 3 tabs of every workbook) and copy and paste the fixed range from each tab onto a new tab the summary workbook.
I will then have a summary workbook with a number of tabs, each one a different workbook with all the data from all the tabs in that workbook, I can then pull that information using formulas or some more VBA into a summary tab on the summary workbook, consolidating all of the information.

Consolidate Data From Multiple Workbooks From Different Folders/directory
I was searching through the internet to look for some help with regards to consolidating data from multiple workbooks from different directories into a single worksheet called Summary.

I would like to copy the entire worksheet from different workbooks in different directories into this workbook I like to call Summary. To manually do it I have to open the workbook I want to copy the worksheet from. Right click on the tab and select Move or Copy, select the sheet I want to copy and select the workbook I want to copy this sheet to. Repeat this process for all the workbooks.

The next step is to copy and paste from these sheets into a main summary sheet. The data range from these sheets are starting from row 13 onwards and they may be of different size between Column A to Column W.

For example the workbooks are coming from :

S:Area 1West.xls from worksheet Andy
S:Area 1East.xls from worksheet Bill
S:Area 1North.xls from worksheet John
S:Area 1North.xls from worksheet Albert etc...

Data Extraction Multiple Workbooks And Sheets To Master Spreadsheet
I have directory with multiple workbooks. Each workbook contains multiple sheets (sheet 1, sheet 2, etc). On each sheet of the workbook, there are various data. The data I am looking to extract from these sheets are in the same cell of each sheet. (See data sheet –datasheet.xls). If I can extract these data without opening the file, it would be preferred. Otherwise, opening the workbook, extract the data, and then close the workbook is acceptable.

Desired Solution:

I would like the assistance to create a macro that will extract data from each sheet of the workbook in the directory at a time until all the workbooks and sheets within the directory are read. The macro shall extract data from cell B5, B6, B10:B20, and sheet name from each sheet of the workbook and copy these data to an active sheet called “US” on workbook, DesireResult.xls. The DesireResult.xls shows how the data should be copied over. Before copying the data to the DesireResult.xls workbook, the macro will prompt the user to enter a cell on the “US” sheet as the starting point to paste the information to. Prompting the user to enter the beginning cell shall happen only once and not for each workbook or sheet being read. The reason for this is because the “US” sheet will already have other data in it. After reading each sheet, the macro shall leave a blank row at the end. The data from the next sheet shall be pasted below the blank row. Note: all the workbooks contain macro and link to other file. When opening each workbook, the macro should automatically choose not to update the links.

Extract Unique Email Addresses From Workbooks
I need to extract only unique email addresses from all the workbooks saved in C:EDT and its sub-folders. The sub-folders will be yearmonth. So there would be several workbooks in each C:EDT2010JAN, C:EDT2010FEB, C:EDT2010MAR...etc, etc. Also, in the future they would be in C:EDT2011JAN, C:EDT2011FEB, C:EDT2011MAR...Same for 2012, 2013, etc, etc.

In each workbook, the email addresses will be located in Column K of a worksheet called ACCOUNT. There is some other info in the column (Phone, Title, Name), but I don't need that.

I would like the email addresses copied and then pasted into either a new MS Word doc or a new Excel workbook/sheet. All the workbooks that contained the email addresses should then be closed.

Find Multiple Instances In Multiple Workbooks
I'm trying to search through a group of Excel files for specific values in column B and then copy and paste the value from column C of the same row into the current worksheet if the search term is found. Thanks to some help from turtle44, I can do that if the search term only appears once, but if it appears more than once, I can only find the first occurance.

I have searched through te archives and found lots of people asking for the same thing. The common suggestion is to use .FindNext, but no matter how I try to use FindNext, it doesn't give me the results I want. It either seems to find the first occurance again or to find nothing at all.

Here is a simplified version of my code, if someone could just explain how to find the second occurance of "Use Code" and past the relevant value into column F of the destination workbook, I'd appreciate it and I should be able to work out the rest on my own.

Sub SearchAllXLSFiles()

Dim lCount As Long
Dim wbSource As Workbook

Combine Multiple Worksheets From Multiple Workbooks
I'm trying to combine data from several worksheets (one sheet per workbook) into a single, consolidated master worksheet for reporting purposes (filters and pivot tables). We do not need to keep formulas for the master worksheet, only values and formats. Individual worksheets are used by different users to capture case data in a Human Services field. Column headings are identical, but rows contain data on individual cases. I'm trying to find a relatively easy way to combine multiple worksheets into a single master. After I establish the worksheets and technique, it will be operated by extremely basic users so I've been reluctant to use extensive macros.

Because of complex reporting needs, the exact combination of worksheets being combined for reporting may vary. For example, one time I may combine Tom, Dick and Harry, another time Tom, Dick and Bob, and yet another time Tom, Dick, Bob and Harry. Obviously, one method is to cut and paste the rows into a single worksheet. Are there more elegant solutions that could easily be handled by very basic users? Worksheets are stored in a single folder along with a separate worksheet used for validation rules (as you can guess, this would ideally be a database application but for various economic and political reasons we are using Excel). One possibility, if straightforward, is to use Access to consolidate data then export it back to Excel for analysis. I've scoured the various threads but have not found a situation mirroring mine. The number of rows for each worksheet is generally less than one hundred, but there will be a few exceeding several hundred. Total numer of rows of the resultant master worksheet will not exceed 10,000.

Extract Comments To Multiple Rows
I have been provided a spreadsheet which has a Quantity column "H". In this column is the quantity of the items and a note containing the serial numbers of the items. The note has no real format. Here are some examples:

Example 1: Serial numbers: 161702, 161722, 161740, 161741.
Example 2: Dec 2006: s/n 63194
Jan 2007: shipped 1 widget, 52480
Example 3: Sent in 2004: 717, 718
Apr 07: shipped 63522 and 63524.
Oct 30, 2007: K. Grande reported only two widgets onboard, 63522 and 63524. 717 and 718 are missing.
Nov 2007: 160302.
Dec 14, 2007: shipped 161093.

There are thousands of serial numbers on hundreds of rows like this. I am looking for code that would copy a new row to another sheet for each serial number in the comment with the serial number placed in column "J". I don't know if the extraneous text can be filtered out, but if I can at least get everything on a seperate row, I can sort/delete what I don't need a lot faster than doing this manually.

In have uploaded an example with before and after sheets. The After sheet is what I have done manually so does not match the examples I used on the Before sheet.

Extract From Multiple Text Files
I have about 50 - 60 text files and I need to find certain values, namely Name, Account No, total amount under Portfolio Value in the text file and copy these values to a worksheet under column: Name, Account and Portfolio Value respectively. All new entries are paste one row below the existing data.

Some of the text files may not have any data in it or may not have the Portfolio Value as the monthly transactions may occupied 2 or 3 text files. Some text files may have 2 Name in it and there will be 2 Portfolio Values in it which I will need both to be copy to the worksheet.

I have attached both the Excel file and the dummy txt file.

Multiple Excel Workbooks Into One
I have a folder where we get 10-15 workbooks and we need to convert these workbooks into one. Currently we manually copy from these individual workbooks and then paste it to the one which we want to have all the data from all the workbooks. This is really time consuming. Can anyone of you help me with creating a Macro which will do the job?

Pulling From Multiple Workbooks Into One
I have 8 individual workbooks that reside on a networked drive that I need to compile into one worksheet in another workbook. The 8 source files are in a separate folder.

I got the following code from someone on this forum, but I can not seem to get it to work exactly.

Sub CopyFromWorkbooksTake3()
'Declare and define variables
Dim objWB As Workbook, SourcePath As String, wbName As String
Dim LastRow As Long, NextRow As Long, DestSheet As Worksheet, i%
NextRow = 2
SourcePath = "C:/Your/File/Path/"
Set DestSheet = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("MasterList")

'Identify the directory of interest
On Error Resume Next
ChDir SourcePath
If Err.Number 0 Then
Err.Clear...............

Find Value In Multiple Workbooks
i have manage to get the loop through folders working ok via you freqently asked questions this macro is used to collate the total sum of expenses for travel, petrol, meals etc from all employees for that month.

the code used in the loop thro macro finds the data in row 35 of all the workbooks and puts it into the master file. see code below that finds the data in row 35. starting at column e and works fine

rCell. Offset(0, 1).FormulaR1C1 = wbResults. Sheets(1).Range("E35")
rCell.Offset(0, 2).FormulaR1C1 = wbResults.Sheets(1).Range("f35")
rCell.Offset(0, 3).FormulaR1C1 = wbResults.Sheets(1).Range("g35")
rCell.Offset(0, 4).FormulaR1C1 = wbResults.Sheets(1).Range("h35")
rCell.Offset(0, 5).FormulaR1C1 = wbResults.Sheets(1).Range("i35")

i have been asked to modify the expense sheets so that extra rows can be inserted as and when required ,this then could moved the total row ie row 35 to any row.

what i have in column "d" is the word "total " can the code by modified to search for the word "total" and fetch the range from "column e to column aa and copy it to the master workbook. There are 3 sheets in each workbook that have total expenses in them. there are also 3 sheets in the master workbook.

i have attached a copy of the expense file we all have

Copying From Multiple Workbooks
I have a series of workbooks residing in different directories which I am trying to copy into a summary workbook. At present what I did is to open the summary workbook and the individual workbook one by one and copy into the summary workbook by first right clicking of the individual workbook's name tab and select copy to copy onto the summary workbook as a new worksheet. I have about 20 individual workbook to copy and this always take a bit of time every week.

To be a bit clearer, the workbooks are in the following directories and the workbook name and sheet name are shown below. For simplicity sake I will only list 3 of them.

1. D:ContractINF00012301.xls the tab name is 2301
2. D:ContractINF0022403.xls the tab name is 2402
3. D:ContractINF00038400.xls the tab name is 8400

LOOKUP Across Multiple Workbooks
I am trying to create a spreadsheet that would be used as a inventory location log for our raw materials Everytime a raw material comes in our door, we assign a lot number to it (currently a manual system).

I am struggling with how to show the balance on hand in the 4th column of this spreadsheet.

I want this column to look up the balance on hand for that lot # based on the material code. We have up to 100 "material codes" all with different paths to get to them.

For example:

'T:Material CardsCold Roll[(material code).xls]
'T:Material CardsHot Roll[(material code).xls]
'T:Material CardsWire Roll[(material code).xls]

Merging Multiple Workbooks
I have a series of duplicate workbooks to allow for distribution to multiple users. The workbooks have a userform which allows the user to save records into a worksheet. I would like to have a standalone workbook which is a merge of all of the worksheets.

Since data will be contiuosly entered, I want the master workbook to have a "constant" link and alway but current without need to run anything.

Combining From Multiple Workbooks
I have multiple WB's all with the same format in a single folder. I need a button to copy all the text from each WB into a single Master WB that has the same format. There are 3 sheets in each client WB corresponding to three sheets in the Master WB. Each client WB has a number of rows (or none) on each sheet and when they are copied to the Master they need to paste consecutively and into the corresponding Master sheet.

Something like this:

Copy rows from [WB1].Sheets 1, 2 and 3 (starting at a:4, columns A-Q). Then paste to corresponding [MasterWB].Sheets 1, 2 and 3 (at a:4, columns A-Q) then repeat with Next Book.

I hope thats clear enough. The Client WB's are all named "stats [name].xls" with 1 hidden sheet (to populate lists) and 3 sheets named "POC", "ISS" and "ECS" repectively. The Master WB is named Stats.xls with the same sheet names as the Client WB's.

The following code was written for me by a helpful member of this forum but it only copies the first sheet of each Client WB. When i tried to duplicate and modify it to copy the second and third sheets I could not get it to copy from the second/third sheets and it meant 3 buttons/3 steps/3 times the confusion.

Sub Report()
a = 1:
st:
If Sheets(5).Cells(a, 1) = "" Then GoTo endd
Path = Sheets(5).Cells(a, 1).Text
If Dir(Path) = "" Then
w = MsgBox(Path + " Is Not A Valid Path / File", , "REPORT")
a = a + 1: GoTo st
End If

If there is anyone who could help me with this I would very much appreciate it. I am only a basic user of Excel and VBA is still new to me. Adding modules and understanding basic commands is as much as I know at the moment.

Processing Of Multiple Workbooks
I often use multiple workbooks containing large data, (more than 10MB) with formulae built in. When I update one workbook, i cant use the other because Excel is still processing the first. Is there a work around or a MS patch to rectify this, or this is just a limitation of Excel program?
