Create List Of Open Workbooks

Dec 10, 2009

create a list of all open workbooks? I've found various examples of code that will do this in a Message Box, but what I am after is for them to be listed actually in the worksheet (let's say in column AA).

How To Create New Workbooks Based On Validation List

Feb 22, 2012

Every two weeks: During Payroll, we have a list of managers and specific employees under that manager.

The managers name is in Column A and they repeat.

Normally we filter that manager, copy and paste the data into a new Workbook, save it, and send the info out to that manager. We do not want other managers to see the information provided to the specific manager.

This is a long tedious process as there are close to 30 managers.

1. Is there a way to run a macro (presumably based on a validation list) to filter, copy the worksheet into a new workbook for each of the 30+ managers?

2. Is there a way to save each with a specific name like "Payroll Feb11 - Manager Name.xlsx"

Excel 2010 :: VBA / Creating Multiple Workbooks From A Template And List Of Names?

Aug 20, 2013

The easiest way I can describe the scenario I am trying to create, is to use a company list of personnel (my index) and to generate a time-sheet workbook per person based on a pre-populated template. This time-sheet is saved as the persons name and has the persons name entered into cell D:10

I have a workbook which contains two worksheets;

1) An Index sheet which contains a list of names that I wish to use in Q16 downwards (note the length of this list will vary each time I run this)

2) A "template" sheet which I wish to duplicate in new workbooks

3) A second "data" sheet that I wish to copy across in new workbooks

I need a macro that will take the "template" and "data" sheets and copy it into a new workbook, renaming each new workbook to each name in my Index sheet. I also want that same Name to be copied into cell reference D:10 of the "template" each time.

The end result is that I should have a series of new files generated and saved which are named the same as the Index list, with both the "Template" sheet and the "Data" sheet present, with the cell D:10 pre-populated with the Name provided in the "Template" sheet.

I'm using Excel 2010.

Nov 19, 2008

I have 1000 workbooks in a folder, each workbooks format is same.
as of now I open each workbook, and check if values in A10 is equal to B10, that is if the value in A10 is "100" I will check if B10 is also "100" if not I will make a note the file name.

I have more than 1000 workbooks in a folder, It is really difficult to open and check if the values are same. is there a macro, which will check the condition A10 = B10, if not get the file name in one sheet.

Excel 2007 :: How To Create A Top 10 List

Sep 20, 2011

I am struggling with trying to create a Top 10 list in Excel 2007. I have googled and search the forum but could not find a solution. (Aplogies if i have overlooked a thread)

I have attached an example of my problem.

1. In Column F i would like to extract the names of the Top 10 performers, based on their respective score. Hence, based on the scoring in Column D, Column F should extract the Top 10 performer names from column A.

2. In Column G, same as above, but bottom 10 names

3. From the attachment, you will view some names are highlighted. I.e. Gary & Neil, and Ian & Michael. These are highlighted based on the fact that they have equal scores.

When extracting the Top / Bottom 10 list, i would like to rank the performers with same score differently. e.g. Gary & Neil, both scored 0%, hence they are equal. But in the Top 10 list, i would like to rank Gary higher as his absolute target is higher. (63 vs. 27) . Same applies to Ian & Michael, Michael should rank higher in the Bottom 10 List as his absolute target is higher.

Importing List To Create Excel Based Organization Chart

Nov 20, 2012

I am aware of the Visio capabilities of importing data into the org chart wizard to create an organization chart. Is there a similar capability in Excel only? I know there are smart art org diagrams, but if I have a spreadsheet of several hundred people, is there a way to import it into a chart (again, similar to the Visio process).

Excel 2010 :: Limitation On Formula To Create List Of Unique Items

Jan 21, 2014

Excel 2010. There is a limit to the usability of the


method. It seems like the limitation is in the Countif function going over 1000 (or some other size limit)

I have a list of ~1500 rows, of that there are approximately 55 unique items. Doing the unique array works correctly up until item ~40, upon which it fails by returning the 1st item only (for the rest).

Trying to debug, and pulling out the Match section, it functions up until 976 (that is


returns 976) anything after returns just 1 (1st item).

It seems to be a limitation on the text string size that COUNTIF can handle.

Excel 2007 :: How To Create Dropdown List But Options Reducing After Every Selection

Aug 17, 2011

Is it possible to do a drop down list that allow user to select pre-defined selections but everytime when a selection is chosen, the list reduced?


I have can choose Apple, Orange, Durian and Mango.

The drop down can only select these 4 fruits.

So there are 4 cells in Column A1, A2, A3, A4.

A1 selects Mango and then A2 will only have 3 options to choose. So until the last cell, he can only choose the last fruit left.

A1, A2, A3, A4 are not selecting in descending order thus it could be A3 selecting first, then A2 and then A4.

Excel 2010 :: Create Master List Worksheet From Lists Of Names On Several Worksheets

Jun 6, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)

I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.

I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.

I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.

I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.

Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?

Excel 2007 :: Find Dates Prior To Today With Exclusions And Create List

Jul 18, 2013

Excel 2007 I have a spreadsheet of file boxes the keeps a log of boxes, contents, locations and shred dates. Currently figuring out when and which boxes can be shredded is a manual hunt, find, and then deal with it. I can use CF and Sorting but I have been looking at some search type functions to return a list meeting the requirements and trying to step my way towards that.

1st attempt. Was find out how many boxes meet the shred (before today) that have not already been detroyed. Column K is the Shred Date, D1 is Todays date, Column G is Status. Got this working good.


My failed attempt came at trying to find the earliest shred date excluding those that have been destroyed. This is not really neeed but I was hoping it would get me closer to creating the list of boxes that meet shred that have not already been destroyed.

Note: Column A is the Box No. and the spreadsheet contains blanks as we continue to add file boxes to storage.

Below array formula find the highest box number used by each department.



I would like to create a list of boxes including Column A "Box no.", Column H "Location", Column K "Shred Date" for any box whose shred date is before today that has not aleady been labeled "Destroyed" in Column G.

Consolidate 4 Excel Project Lists (Workbooks) To New Master Project List Using VBA

Sep 5, 2013

My task is to consolidate 4 Excel Project Lists (Workbooks) to a Master Workbook. The Project Lists has a different structure and almost different content. The relevant information is always on Sheet1 but it has completely different ranges. The only constant is the Project Number, which should be used to sort the information. Every Project should be listed only once with all the existing information.

I found a code written by Ron de Bruin which has already some components that I want to have in my VBA but I think there are still a lot of necessary adjustments to do.

Sub MergeSelectedWorkbooks()
Dim SummarySheet As Worksheet
Dim FolderPath As String
Dim SelectedFiles() As Variant
Dim NRow As Long
Dim FileName As String
Dim NFile As Long
Dim WorkBk As Workbook


The Master Project List should has the headers in Row1 and the information listed below. The Macro should automatically places the correct information to the correct column. Some of the information are in 2 or more of the lists but they should be listed only once in the Master List.

Project Number

Project Description


I guess a problem is that the structures of the Lists are quite different so there must be a kind of sorting process.

In the end I want to have an Excel File with the Macro and a Command Button and by clicking the Macro creates a new Workbook with the Master List.

It would be better if there is a variable range instead of a defined. Like the Macro searches the last row and starts at this row and column.

Create Reports From Workbooks

Oct 21, 2009

I do testing of industrial equipment, collecting a lot of data along the way. Once I've calculated the performance metrics of existing systems, I do a cost analysis on proposed repairs or replacements.

I have a couple of goals in trying to streamline my spreadsheet process and make it more effective.

My worksheets usually end up with way more columns than I can view on the screen and that gets pretty cumbersome, so I want to develop input forms that will make data entry simpler. I've tried transposing the formats but they get even more difficult to handle that way. I just ran across the "Build a UserForm for Excel" pdf in this forum and I think that's going to help quite a bit.

Then for each of these types of projects I need to develop at least two report formats, one that will be comprehensive for each individual piece of equipment or subsystem that I'm analyzing, and another that's more of a summary of entire systems, such as a network of pumps all owned by the same customer. Ideally, this summary report would allow me to rank the subsystems by various criteria, such best ROI or most critical to operations. Format-wise what I'm looking for here is to strip away anything not relevant to decision makers, just reporting the important ID info and key results.

Finally, I'd like to be able to store all similar jobs in a single database so I can easily search through past results for comparative purposes when doing higher level analysis on new projects. I keep seeing the term "relational database" bandied about but don't really know if that's what I'm talking about or not.

Using Autofilter Values To Create New Worksheets Or Workbooks

May 13, 2014

I often have a table (sometimes formatted as a table, sometimes just data arranged like a table but not formatted as a table in Excel) where I'd like to create individual worksheets (eventually workbooks) based on the information in one of the columns. Take for instance the attached file. I'd like to create a macro to create worksheets (or preferably workbooks) based on data in the Region column. So workbook 1 would be something like North Region Sales 2014, and contain only the data for the North region. Workbook 2 would be something like South Region Sales 2014, and contain only the data for the South region, and so on. Sometimes I might need to create these based off the Region field, another time I might need to do it based off of the Salesperson.

Region Sales 2014.xlsx

To do this currently, I'd use the filter and unselect whichever data I want to keep and then delete all the remaining (visible) rows. When I unfilter, I'm only left with the data I want. This works, but it takes a long time when working with 50 or more "Regions" and large amounts of data.

Create Multiple Workbooks From A Single Workbook

Jun 3, 2009

On a weekly basis, I receive a single worksheet in a workbook that contains ~30,000 rows of product sales.

Row one contains column headings that is unique to all other rows. Column A contains the store number that sold the product. There are ~50 unique store numbers.

I am trying to create a macro that will break the report up into seperate workbooks.

For example, assume in column A there are 30 rows of data for 3 different store numbers (say store 112, 386, & 798, each with 10 rows of data). I want to create 3 new workbooks and include the same column heading for each. For example, name new workbooks as follows: "Store 112", "Store 386", "Store 798".

Combine Workbooks And Create Pivot Table

May 4, 2014

I have 16 different workbooks for different regions of my company. Each workbook has one worksheet (sheet named each region name), and all workbooks are formatted same regarding column names. Ultimately, I would like to combine all workbooks into one summary workbook where I can build a pivot table and pull out various data. Do you think this method is the best way to do what I am trying to do? I am very novice when it comes to VBA. I have written the code below, however, it is not working.

Sub GetSheets()
Path = "C:UsersDanielleDesktopWorksheets"
Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xls")
Do While Filename ""
Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
Next Sheet
Filename = Dir()
End Sub

Create Workbooks & Save-Name By Sheet Tab Names

Oct 10, 2006

Every month I work on an audit that has data from 35 different distributors. I have code below that puts each distributors audit/sales information on a new tab and each new tab is given the distributors name. This also creates a new workbook for each distributor.

When the new workbooks are created, how can I name each workbook with the distributor name it's being created for? Is it possible to predefine a file path to where these new workbooks will be saved?

The distributor names I'm using are in column AF.

Sub FormatList()
'The code below creates and names a new tab for each members info
Dim ws1 As Worksheet
Dim wsNew As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Integer
Dim c As Range
Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set rng = Range("Database")

'extracts a list of member or distributor names
ws1.Columns("R:R"). AdvancedFilter _
Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
CopyToRange:=Range("T1"), Unique:=True
r = Cells(Rows.Count, "T").End(xlUp).Row

'set up Criteria Area
Range("U1").Value = Range("R1").Value

For Each c In Range("T2:T" & r)
'adds the member name to the criteria area above
ws1.Range("U2").Value = c.Value

Create Workbooks & Worksheets For Each Group In Table

Jan 17, 2008

I have a workbook that contains one worksheet with data. This data has 7 columns and is a database metadata report.

The columns are as follows:

Joined Tables
Column Name
Column Alias
Column Description
Column Data Type
Column Length

From this data, I am looking to have a script that automates the creation of a new workbook for each unique value in the Table column (i.e. tablename.xls) and saves them to my local drive. Each workbook then would have x number of worksheets named joined table 1, joined table 2, etc that relate to the name of the table in the original Table column. Finally, each worksheet will contain the related Column data for each Joined Table as mentioned above.
