Extract Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One Worksheet

Apr 15, 2008

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 Single One Cell Value From Multiple Closed Workbooks

Mar 23, 2012

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.

Column AColumn BFile NameH19 ValueDallas.xlsmSan Diego.xlsmArgentina.xlsmParis.xlsm

VBA Code Error - Extract Data From Multiple Workbooks To Single Excel Spreadsheet

Mar 28, 2014

I have a folder with multiples excel sheets

VB:

Dim SummarySheet As Worksheet
Dim FolderPath As String
Dim NRow As Long
Dim FileName As String
Dim WorkBk As Workbook

Compare Workbooks And Extract Data

Jul 3, 2007

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

Dec 9, 2007

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).

Macro To Extract Data From 3 Workbooks With Execptions

Feb 23, 2010

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

Extract Data By Type To Separate Workbooks

Mar 12, 2008

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 Unique Email Addresses From Workbooks

Nov 17, 2009

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.

Extract Data From Different Workbooks To Current Sheet

May 5, 2006

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.

Extract Data From Many Closed Workbooks For Calculations

Sep 4, 2006

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)

Combining Multiple Cells In Multiple Worksheets In Multiple Workbooks Into One Table

Jan 6, 2009

I'm currently doing a survey using an excel workbook that contains multiple questions across multiple worksheets using radio buttons linked to certain cells.

I have around 400 workbooks coming back to me, so what i want to do is take specific values from across many worksheets within each workbook and combine them into a large master table in a seperate workbook.

I've tried using VBA, but not being very proficient at it i've hit a brick wall with that, so i'm hoping that there is an easier way to do it than what i'm currently pursuing.

I've got data being scraped from a site, putting 1 new workbook in a folder each day

each workbook has 40 sheets in it.

i need to run 5 modules in sequence on a sheet then loop to the next sheet and run the same 5 modules.

ive writen all the modules, and can loop them through the sheets in sequence but i cant work out how to loop them through the each workbook in the folder..

is there an easy way to do this or can it not be done because it would need access to the folder that holds all the wordbooks which lives outside of excel on the desktop ?

Consolidate All Data In Multiple Worksheets Of Multiple Workbooks In One Master File?

Jul 12, 2014

I need a macro that would consolidate all data in multiple worksheets of multiple workbooks in one Master file.

All the workbooks will be in one particular folder. The macro should search for data in all the workbooks and consolidate it in one master excel workbook.

I am currently using both excel 2007 and excel 2010. This macro would really reduce manual work as currently consolidating data from 45 to 50 sheets takes an ample amount of time...

Summing Data From Multiple Workbooks Based On Multiple Criteria

May 14, 2014

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.

Sample:

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.

Changing Multiple Workbooks And Multiple Worksheets Within

Jan 28, 2009

I have a folder - U:30000 - that contains a number of identically layed out workbooks. What I'm trying to do is, in each, change a number of cell values. Where dominicb's solution to the previous problem didn't work for me, however, is that I need to change cells in multiple worksheets. The cells are specifically:

On worksheet 'Construction': C3 (which is a date), D3 (which is a text value); on worksheet 'FF&E': D3 (the same text value as D3 on 'Construction'. Unfortunately, whoever initially set up the workbook didn't have the foresight to link it!)

Combine Multiple Worksheets From Multiple Workbooks

Sep 7, 2006

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.

Find Multiple Instances In Multiple Workbooks

Feb 16, 2008

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
Dim wbDestiny As Workbook

Combining From Multiple Workbooks

Mar 9, 2009

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.

Copying From Multiple Workbooks

Feb 6, 2010

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

Sum Up Numbers From Multiple Workbooks

Oct 9, 2008

I have had a look at FAQs and some of the threads but I can't seem to find one that actually sums up numbers from the various workbooks.

I have 15 workbooks all formatted the same, and a parent workbook, again with the exact same format. I would like to consolidate the numbers in one cell in the 15 workbooks to appear as one number in the parent (in the same cell ref).

E.G. wb1 has 150 in cell A1
wb2 has 75 in cell A1
wb3 has 25 in cell A1
wb4 has 100 in cell A1

The parent workbook should have 350 in cell A1 after the macro is run.

Best Practice - Multiple Workbooks?

Jun 28, 2006

Task - Streamline & Automate daily Excel Tasks for 13 Staff & Manager, based in 2 different locations. Current Status. 25 workbooks, "Shared", + 1 Workbook {List.xls}, "Not Shared". All Validation lists are in this List book. 1 main data entry sheet in each workbook, feeding totals on Main Tab. Each data entry sheet is 10 columns, 250-700 rows. 5 Colums are free text entry, 5 are fed from data validation lists. The data validation lists are on another Tab, which is linked to a non shared workbook.

Each workbook has a Main Tab, which totals data input, and represents data in colours, in different cells..Picture a warehouse, with shelves & racks. I am in the middle of designing a simple form...but not so simple..thats another story. I am concerned that there is a lot of potential for disater, especially with shared books. I have thought of the access route, but the staff need to see colours on the sheets. Any opinions on what the Best Practice may be to handle this scenario. My main forte has been formula, pivot tables & external data..this is a new challenge

I now need to modify the macro to include additional ranges. E2, E3, G2, H2, N1 to U3. I am stuck to the best method of selecting these ranges and then pasting them as I cannot get it to work. I have included a copy of the code below.

Sub getdata()
Dim filename, fileselected
Dim a1(1 To 20)
Dim WB As Workbook
ChDrive ("g:")
ChDir ("G:Folder name")
fileselected = Application. GetOpenFilename("Excel Files, *.xls", , "Select your Files", , True)
If StrComp(TypeName(fileselected), "Boolean", vbTextCompare) = 0 Then
ChDrive ("g:")
Exit Sub
End If.......................
