I have a folder containing many Excel files. Each is unique, and I wish to characterise them in a separate contents file in Excel. To do so, it would be very useful to populate a worksheet with the names of the files in the folder.
I have a problem with getting the list of files in subfolders. this code is writing the names of files in a folder to column "A". But it is just "target" folder. But i need to get the name of all files not just under the target folder but also subfolders of target and even subfolders of subfolders of target
VB: Dim FSO As Object Dim SourceFolder As Object Dim FileItem As Object [code]....
Here is a macro I have found and manipulated for my particular case. The problem is that I want to narrow the search criteria by just pdfs and only those starting with Segment which i know in coding would be something like "Segment" & "*" & ".pfd" or something to those terms but the code uses objects which I'm not too familiar with.
Code: Sub ListAllFile()
Dim objFSO As Object Dim objFolder As Object Dim objFile As Object Dim ws As Worksheet
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set ws = Sheets("Simple Cut Lists (2)")
We use Excel 2003 and 2007 to track labor data for a field service company. The field tech's complete daily forms and the office staff copy/paste this data into weekly billing worksheets. They use naming conventions to show the jobs and dates in the file name (Daily Labor - Job1 - 031308.xls and Weekly Labor - week ending 3-16.xls. What I would like to do is link the daily data to the weekly forms as they come in. Is there some way to do this when the job names and the dates are always different? Can I tell Excel to expect data files based on the naming conventions as in the Weekly is named "Weekly Labor - Week Ending 3-16.xls so data files named LaborJob1310.csv, laborjob1311.csv would automatically update the weekly sheet? I can put these in a folder and link them, but I don't know how to provide an easy way to do this for the upcoming week.
I have a question about creating a custom drop down menu. In AutoCAD, I can create custom drop down menus that loads each time AutoCAD loads and i was wondering if excel have something similar. This menu would be added to the default menu list: "File_Edit_View_Insert_Format_Tools_Data...etc". I have searched online but i keep getting things about how to make drop down menus in cells but nothing about adding a main drop down menu.
What I want to do is create a menu with hyper links to all of the excel files we use quite often here at work.
I have already done this by just creating a sheet with a list of hyper links on it but would like to put it in a drop down menu instead if its possible.
The following code is something that was developed to find files with certain criteria that matches references in cells A1 & A2. The coding is as follows:
Code: Option Explicit Option Compare Text 'for Case-Sensitive matching change Text to Binary Sub List_Matches() Dim sPattern As String, sPath As String, sJob As String Dim sMainDir As String, sCommonSub As String Dim c As Range, lRow As Long
The red is the area of the code i am having problems with. The original code was going to look only in one directory, now I wanted to add a second directory with reference located in E5. Now as is the program works fine looking at directory 1 or E4, but the problem i feel is that for E5 all the folder name are named "WO#_____ - ______". I believe the # sign is not allowing it to open that folder and search for the info. In the code there is a function for solving the # sign problem in a file name, but how could i either modify the code or the function to do the same for the folder name and view the # sign as a valid file name to open?
creating a macro, I have a list of CSV files in a folder called balances, i need a macro that will look into each CSV file and grab all p'folios which have a negative balance in Col D and line them up as per example shown below. The extracted data needs to be copied to file named "Workings" S:RecsalancesWorkings
All data in CSV file looks like this, where header row is row 1 starting at A1
I am unable to install a disk catalog and have been trying with no success to try and get something in excel that will look at a directory and display the contents of that folder with the file attributes etc
Sorry that I'm very new in Excel VBA coder. And, for this topic, I don't even know how to start. I want to make a MS Excel database of a numerous files. This database must be consist of Filename, Location, and it's attribute (let's say updated date, size, hidden status)
Essentially, the Engineering Dept has given me 550 AutoCad files I have dumped into a folder located in this path: C:/DrawingsDump
From these 550 DWG files I need to manually filter and separate 260 drawings that I actually need to use and move them to a folder located in this path: C:/DrawingsFiltered . This manual filtering process takes a lot of time and is tedious work and it has got to be done everytime Engineering changes drawings because they are not kind enough to provide me a delta list.
In Excel 2003 I have setup a list of all 260 drawings I am interested in and that I call my filtered list. Is it possible to create a script that will enable Excel 2003 to compare my filtered list to all of the files inside C:/DrawingsDump, and then copy only those files that match to my Excel Filtered list and then paste only matching files into the C:/DrawingsFiltered folder?
If Excel 2003 can't handle this, is there a third party application that will let me perform a file management function like this with minimum startup time?
I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.
1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.
2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it
3. Open the file in the associated application
4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file
5. Repeat steps 2-4
DoIt = 1 While DoIt = 1 Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1 Print #1, Files In Folder Close #1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2 while not eof(2) Line input #2, MyFile Display MyFile on screen Wait for 30 seconds Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it wend Close #2
I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems
I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.
with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.
I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.
I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.
I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?
I found this nifty program on[url]but there is a problem with it and it's down to the types of files I'm trying to list on my PC.
The excel code below lets you select a starting directory and it will then produce a list of files in a sheet. However when it comes across an internet shortcut file it gets rather confused and won't display the name of the shortcut but what the shortcut stands for. This causes an issue when I try and get some details about the file (eg date, size etc.) as a 'permission denied' error can then occur if it links to a file that is currently in use. For some reason I can't attach an example of a shortcut / internet shortcut so please feel free to make one at your end. eg. I have a shortcut called 'ImageJ' which links to a web address [url]. The code below then reports this address instead of the file name 'ImageJ'. Can any one suggest how to amend this coding to handle this issue?

I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.
One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french
can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:
NO = B BA = W RG = R SO = P JA = Y BE = L VE = GY GR = G VI = V MA = BR BJ = TA OR = O
Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.
I did a search for " import text" and found some promising leads, but not exactly what I was looking for. I have tried running macros and looking at the code but don't know how to pass the file names from the the D47:D147 range to VBA(see below). I saw elsewhere that Excel can be told to create a temporary batch file, and that the batch file with the command "copy text1.txt+text2.txt+text3.txt all.txt" for example could be used to merge the 3 text files into a file called all.txt. I don't however know how specify the path where copy starts, to tell the batch file to look in subdirectories or to pass the file into Excel. I've posted this question yesterday to Yahoo Answers http://tinyurl.com/omers and http://tinyurl.com/rfww9 without much luck.
Below is the macro I would like:I have text files whose names are found in the range D47:D147 although without the appended ".txt" extension. The sheets can only contain one name sometimes, but on average 8 to 10, so in the average case only cells D47:D56 would have entries.The text files are found in the say H:Textfiles directory or subdirectories.I would like Excel to find these files, concatenate them with a row between each file, and paste the results into cell K251.Finally, the text import wizard should be used with a space as a delimiter and the last 3 columns (it's sometimes only 2) of the concatenated file, not imported.
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...
Is there a code that will search a pre-determined folder for all .xls files containing the word "Temp", and deleting those files?
Example: In the root of drive M, I have several Excel files. Anytime one of the original tracking logs is opened, a temp file of that log is automatically created. I would like to automatically search the drive and delete all files containin the word "Temp".
I've attached a picture of the directory tree, in case that will help. The file will always be named "PO Response Tracking - Temp#######.xls", with ###### representing a series of either 5 or 6 numbers.
