Import Content From Separate Excel Files To A Single Spreadsheet?

Feb 2, 2010

Hi everyone,

I've got several Excel files that need to be edited separately.
Once they have been edited, I need to paste the content of each file in a single separate Excel file.

Is there a way to retrieve the content from all the files in a folder, and merge it in a single file?

For example:

3 separate files > File1, File2, File3

Merged file, sheet1

Import Multiple TXT Files Content To Respective Cells In Spreadsheet VBA

Feb 13, 2014

In spreadsheet attached, column F is populated with file names. I need VB script to import content of each respective file into corresponding cell in column E.

I've got over 25k of records and the same amount of txt files that I need to insert into cells. I have found this script :

Sub MikeMaster()
Dim x As Integer
Dim temp
Dim i As Integer
Dim Drive As String

[Code] .....

But need to modify it to do something like this: read cell from column F (Text File) > find file with corresponding name in given folder > Insert content of that text file into corresponding cell in column E (Description) > go to next row and do the same.

Import Set Range From Multiple Files Into Single Worksheet

Jul 30, 2009

I've got a single folder for the year 2009 that contains multiple files, identical in nature but updated for each business-day. In other words, the same report is generated daily with updated info. The naming convention is the same for every file (i.e. Daily Net Debt Report 02.2.2009.xls)

My ultimate goal is to have a macro that is dynamic enough that if its run on any given day of the year, it pulls the data (specifically from the worksheet "Detailed Cash" cells C1:E26) from every file included in the folder and places it in a single worksheet in the master file. So, for example, data from 1/2/09 would go into cells A1:C26, data from 1/3/09 would go into cells D1:F26, etc...

Import Multiple Text Files Into Spreadsheet?

Dec 22, 2011

I have about 10k poorly formatted txt files that I need to grab 4 items from each and put in a spreadsheet. How can this be done in Excel or should it be done in Access instead?

Here's a link to what each txt file looks like: MTRP88PF700721.txt

I only need the number next to Posting Journal on line 3 (12686 in this case), the 3 digit number next to Class Total on line 11 (101 in this case), the Extended Cost Final Total and the Extended Retail Final Total (23.77 and 39.30 in this case)

because one of my staff members is currently opening each txt file and typing these figures into a spreadsheet!

Import List Of File Names From Folder Into Single Spreadsheet?

Nov 28, 2012

i'd like to be able to import a list of file names from a folder. sounds fairly straight forward to me, but example:

folder a has 10 files in it (let's say PDFs - numbered 1 through 10). I'd like to be able to open the spread sheet, and see the file names in column b. ideally, i'd also like subfolders to be listed, in the next column. but, let's start with just this.

Add 1 Row From Multiple Files Into A Single Spreadsheet

Dec 3, 2012

I have a group of files on a network drive.

Directory is S:RailserveAvailability

The Excel files all start with Availability. After Availability is the date the file was created, followed by .xlsx So example, Availability041012.xlsx

The file has multiple worksheets, but work sheet names are the same in each file. I need data from the "Car Summary By Product Line"

The data from each sheet that I would like to get from each sheet starts in A4 through I4. There are forumlas in several of the cells so would need to be a Paste Special Values type copy.

So code/macro would do this:

Copy row A4:I4 from File Availability041012.xlsx, Worksheet "Car Summary By Product Line" to a row in the Master file

Then repeat for the next file Availability041212.xlsx (this data isn't typically generated on weekends so won't be a consistent date + 1) copied to the next row down on the Master file. This would allow me to chart data for car counts from day to day. It would be really cool to have the file date in Column J so I could chart by date and show a trend, but I know beggers can't be choosers.

I have roughly 200 days with multipule product lines so copying and pasting each one wouldn't be feesible.

Excel 2010 :: Import Data From Multiple CSV Files?

Dec 14, 2012

I have small bit of import code (below), that I am looking to modify. The data that I am importing is for an inventory tool that determine optimal on hand quantities and alerts to any issues. In the past there had been one inventory source (one .csv data file). So I populate that to one sheet and modify the data on that sheet. I now have multiple data sources that I need to address.

There are two things that I would like to add/be able to do.

1) I would like to add a dropdown or set of multiple buttons to the popup window that says "Select the OnHand Report". Previously I only had one report source which I posted to sheet "orow0205". I have 2 other data files now that I have to import and they need to go to sheets "orow0206" and "orow2144". I am grabbing the data the same way on each sheet so that doesnt need to change I just need the option on the pop up window to determine the sheet name I want the import to go to.

2) The files that come from the sources above have a file name like "20121213_00000_groupstatistics.csv". Where the first eight digits represent the date the file was generated. If possible, after I select the sheet via the popup solve above, I would like to have the date populated in "MM/DD/YYYY" format in the last column of the imported data (the same date for each row of data imported). The file imported has no date data on it and can represent any day (which is why I am not using some form of TODAY formula).

I am currently using Excel 2010.

Import Text Files To A Sheet In Existing Excel File

Jul 25, 2014

I have a folder with multiple text files. I want to import one of these files to a sheet called data in an existing Excel file. The excel file has references to this data sheet on other sheets which I want to keep. I want to save this excel file with the name the text file has and repeat this for all the text files in the folder.

I found a macro a while back which does the job nicely of importing and saving the Excel file, however all the data in the other sheets gets lost once it is saved. How to keep the data?


Sub tgr()
Const txtFldrPath As String = "FOLDER WITH TEXT FILES" 'Change to folder path containing text files
Const xlsFldrPath As String = "FOLDER FOR EXCEL FILES" 'Change to folder path excel files will be saved to
Dim CurrentFile As String: CurrentFile = Dir(txtFldrPath & "" & "*.txt")
Dim strLine() As String
Dim LineIndex As Long

Excel 2010 :: Import Text Files To Include File Name As Data?

Jul 12, 2012

I need to import thousand of txt files into 1 worksheet keeping the file names as data. Each txt file has 2 columns :

1 0.65914
2 0.65945
3 0.86062
... ...
and each txt file represents recordings made at specific time and date (e.g 0158.DSG_RAWD_HMS_21_ 0_ 0__DMY_29_ 2_12_pulses). I would like to have 2 columns: 1) with the time taken from the name of the txt file (e.g. 21:00:00) and 2) the associated recording. Something like this:

21:00:00 0.65914
21:00:00 0.65945
21:00:00 0.86062

and so on for each txt file and all the recordings piling up in 1 spreadsheet. I have tried to run few codes in VBA, but I have no knowledge of it and none of the code worked. I am using Excel 2010.

Read And Import Multiple Text Files Into Excel And Parse Data?

Mar 27, 2014

I am trying to determine a way to quickly import data from text files into Excel and place data in suitable columns (under correct headings). I am thinking I could be asked which file to read and import doing them 1 by 1, or if there is an automated way to cycle through all the files that would be more efficient (filenames are variable).

From the text files I have attached I can tell the column headers and what data should go under each. Not sure how you would describe the delimiting on these files? Are these files in a format that VBA could be used to reduce manual copy and paste approach? I have about 300 of these files I want to extract the data from.

Note: the attached files are from a public access website.

Excel Macro To Export Rows Of Data Into Separate CSV Files

Nov 18, 2011

I have an excel spreadsheet laid out as:

1 ** ** *** ** ** ** ** *** ** *** ** ** *** ** **
2 ** ** *** ** ** ** ** *** ** *** ** ** *** ** **
3 ** ** *** ** ** ** ** *** ** *** ** ** *** ** **
4 ** ** *** ** ** ** ** *** ** *** ** ** *** ** **
5 ** ** *** ** ** ** ** *** ** *** ** ** *** ** **

I need a macro that can automatically export the cell data for each row from Column A--> O into it's own seperate text file, and name each text file with the text in column A. So again... everything in row 1 from A to O would be copied and pasted into a text file called (A1 cell data).txt

once that first text file has created, I was hoping that there could be a loop to automatically close the first text file and move on to row 2 and do the same, copy all text in row 2 from A to O into a new text file titled (A2 cell data).txt, close and move on to row 3 etc etc.

this is a large list of approximately 8,000 records.

Excel 2003 :: Deleting Rows For Multiple Files In Separate Workbook

Sep 10, 2012

I'm new to this forum and to VBA

First-off, I'm using Excel 2003 SP3.

The setup: A software application I regularly use produces csv data files (in this case approx 300 files). These I have converted to xls format using a separate macro. The files are in one folder and named as follows eg

G1 18800.xls
G1 18802.xls
G2 18975.xls
G3 19881.xls
G3 19990.xls
G5 19990.xls

The files contain the following data:

01-Oct-03 08:00 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:01 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:02 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:03 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:04 757 20 FALSE 0.18
01-Oct-03 08:05 1714 32 FALSE 0.44
01-Oct-03 08:06 1524 32 FALSE 0.39
01-Oct-03 08:07 1665 45 FALSE 0.47
01-Oct-03 08:08 1644 42 FALSE 0.46
01-Oct-03 08:09 263 8 FALSE 0.06

I then created a macro using code I sourced from the internet, and included some addtional commands (filename, copy/paste). See below. This macro opens the all the xls data files in the folder and copies the relevant data to an analysis workbook [Analysis sheet, Results sheet, Master sheet] ie the data is copied from the data file and pasted into the Analysis worksheet. Then the results are copied from the Results sheet to the Master sheet. So far so everything works.

My problem is this: I'm stumped at how to delete rows from the xls data files before running the analysis workbook and macro. In other words, after converting the csv files to xls format I need to clean the xls data files.

I have a separate xls file with criteria data in two columns:

FileName Date
G1 18800 06-Oct-03
G1 18801 02-Oct-03
G1 18801 03-Oct-03
G1 18801 05-Oct-03
G2 18795 14-Oct-03
G2 18795 15-Oct-03
G2 18795 16-Oct-03
G2 18795 17-Oct-03

The rows in a particular data file, with dates that are not present in the Criteria workbook must be deleted. This to be done for every data file in the folder. Also, I need to exclude rows for specific time periods eg 12H00AM - 04H00AM from all the files irrespective of date.

the code needed [should a separate macro be run or can code be placed within the present macro?]. I've tried looking for something similar on the internet, but my requirements seem too customized to be able to adapt the code that I found. And of course this is waaaay above my present skill level!

Option Explicit

Sub CopyPaste()

'This code opens up data files (xls) in a specified folder and copies data A1:G17281 to an Analysis workbook (Analysis sheet).

'The data from the Results sheet is then copied to the Master sheet.

Dim wkbDest As Workbook
Dim wksDest As Worksheet
Dim wkbSource As Workbook
Dim wksSource As Worksheet
Dim MyPath As String
Dim MyFile As String

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import

Jan 29, 2008

I'm attempting to import around 200 (and growing!) separate text files into Excel. I am using the formula below to import the text file and then using a separate macro to select the information I need, copy it into another spreadsheet, and then run the import macro again.

However, I have a problem in that my import macro gives me 'Run-time error '1004:

Application defined or user defined error''. At first this wasn't a problem as the information is pasted into the spreadsheet despite the error anyway. However, now that I am looping the macro it is obviously causing more problems as it prevents the loop. I would really appreciate it if anyone knows of a work-around or can spot an error in the coding to resolve this!

The code below shows is for the import macro only:

Sub ImportTextFile(FName As String, Sep As String)

Dim RowNdx As Long
Dim ColNdx As Integer
Dim TempVal As Variant
Dim WholeLine As String
Dim Pos As Integer
Dim NextPos As Integer
Dim SaveColNdx As Integer

Multipage PDF Import Into Separate Tabs

Feb 13, 2013

How I might go about some VBA code to import a PDF file (that may contain multiple pages), and split each page into its own worksheet.

For simplicity purposes, say the PDF is at "C: est.pdf". My thoughts was to have the code detect how many pages the PDF has and loop through the file, importing each page individually into the workbook; but this is uncharted territory for me.

How To Use Spreadsheet For The Content Of Webpage

Jan 22, 2014

I was reading Box Office Mojo and wanted to know which actor would have the highest box office total if worldwide sales were accounted for and inflation was considered (for some reason they offer the data in 3 different formats but that is not one of them). I had previously only used Excel for simple records so I had to search your site for ways to write a few macros but I got everything working. I want to present the data.

It looks like embedding a spreadsheet in a webpage can be done but is there anyway I can add a feature so that if the person browsing the site clicks on a cell that cell's data will removed from consideration? I don't want the cell to actually display a "0" but if the background color could change to signify it was no longer being counted that would awesome. A lot of people argue about what movie should be counted toward an actors total box office record (starring roles only, supporting roles, voice work, cameos) so I would really like to be able to allow people to easily remove roles they personally don't think should count towards the total.

Update Spreadsheet With Textboxes Content

Sep 6, 2007

I have about 5 text boxes. The user enters data in each text box and, as of right now, the data automatically gets saved as I am using the _change event. (TextBox1_Change()) This stores the value of each text box into a cell of my choosing on an Excel spreadsheet automatically.

From what I gather (according to a great ozgrid administrator ), it would be better, as a coder, to not use the _Exit event and instead, perhaps I should use the _Enter event. (TextBox1_Enter.) This way, when the user fills out the information in the text boxes, the information will NOT be loaded onto an Excel spreadsheet automatically as they type. (Which is what it does now by using the following code for each text box

Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & intRow.) = TextBox1.Value........
