Lookup In Closed Workbook Error

Dec 5, 2006

Column D = Dates to be used in each of the matches.

Cell C2 = data-validation cell, for choosing the specific Named Range that contains the data to be returned from the closed wb.

VBA code automatically opens the closed data file and then closes it after returning the data to the main file.

find the error in the cell formula (or named range formula) thatís preventing this from working correctly? (see atttached files)

Lookup Referencing Closed File Returns Value Error

Aug 13, 2008

I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.

Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:

=VLOOKUP(A38,'[June Scorecard confirmation.xls]VPSC Summary'!$C$10:$F$22,4,FALSE)

The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.

Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.

Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.

Lookup Range In Closed Workbook

Jan 26, 2010

I'm using the following sub (thx Benvolio 2001) to do a vlookup (of A1 in Sheet2) and drop the resulting value ("found") in b1 of sheet2. Here's my question: I'm having trouble modifying the rng to use a closed workbook in another folder i:other folderotherfile.xls. The "Inventory" tab is in otherfile.xls
How can i do this? use the vlookup in a closed workbook somewhere else?

Sub Example_of_Vlookup()
Dim lookFor As Range
Dim rng As Range
Dim found As Variant
Set lookFor = Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1")
Set rng = Sheets("Inventory").range("A4:D500")
On Error Resume Next
found = Application.Vlookup(lookFor.Value, rng, 4, 0)
Range("b1").value = found
End Sub

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

Feb 6, 2013

I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.

However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:

Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.

Heres the code that I have got.

Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating
Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)

Closed - No Resolution- Lookup Formula

Apr 16, 2009

I have a two worksheet file.

On one worksheet I have every day of the year (work day) and corresponding data for many topics for that day in the column.

On the other worksheet I want the user to type in a date and have the data for that day from the first worksheet display in a specific cell (based on the date entered at the top of the sheet) on the second worksheet.

I think it is some type of lookup formula but am not sure.

Enter todays date on one worksheet and have data display based on that date from a second worksheet. The data on the second worksheet would be manually updated every day.

Lookup Data In Several Closed Workbooks

Jun 2, 2006

I would like to create a sheet that looks in a certain folder with several .xls files and pulls data from certain cells ( not necessarily next to each other) automatically with out opening each workbook in the target folder.

Each workbook is laid out the same, based on a template, and emailed to me each day (I'll actually get 3 or 4 a day, one from each plant) So the number of files will grow every day. (I've read about a way to automatically save the file based and the date, hour, and minute, and email the file when a certain condition is met, and plan to use this technique in the template.) So the file names should be consistent.

As an example, I would like cell A1 to contain the date from the oldest file and increment row by row as the files come in, automatically. Then the cells B1 on across would contain data from certain cells within the .xls file with that date and time.

Every time that workbook is opened it would update to include data from any new files in the specified folder.

I've done some basic vlookup formulas to look at one particular workbook but not several.

Copy From Closed Workbook Then Create New Workbook

Jan 31, 2007

I've got a problem with this code, have been wracking my brains about. Here is the process I am trying to do:

1) Copy a range (a2:av1000) but (ideally) find the last populated row from a closed workbook (with a different password)
2) Create a new workbook and paste this data into it at A2
3) Close all the workbooks but only save the new one.

Pull Value From Closed Workbook Where Workbook Name Is In A Cell

Nov 24, 2007

I want to open an excel file whose name is a value in a spreadsheet, and then pull a value from the spreadsheet I queried into my existing workbook. Here is the syntax i have so far:

to note: I'm calling the workbook in which the macro is located testproject.xls, and I'm using [integer].xls as my list of files that the macro will query. Ultimately, this code will go in a loop.

Set currentCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")
varCellvalue = currentCell.value
Workbooks.Open "path_of_file" & varCellvalue & ".xls"
Windows("testproject.xls").Activate
currentCell.Offset.(0,1).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=[3.xls]Sheet1!R1C1"

The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.

#VALUE Error When Using Sumif On Closed Workbooks

Jul 15, 2009

I have this formula in a excel file called test.xls which does a SUMIF on file "Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls". It works fine when I have Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls open at the time. When I close it the file displays a #VALUE in the cells

My formula is:

=SUMIF('G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!$B$7:$M$7,Cover!M$85,'G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!B9:M9)-'Page 15'!E9

This is really annoying as the formula works, and you need to open the linked file to display the results, otherwise you get the #VALUE. Is there anyway around this and why is it doing it??

#Value! Formula Error When Source Closed

Dec 30, 2007

I'm compiling statistics from a number of separate workbooks. When I (or more to the point - one of my staff) open the Stats Workbook the formulas show #VALUE unless the other Workbooks are opened. I want the Stats to calculate without the user having to open the other workbooks as most users won't know which ones to open.

I could generate VBA code when the workbook opens to also open the other ones but wondered if there was another solution.

Formula Shows An Error Once Source Is Closed

Nov 30, 2007

I am linking two worksheets together. Formulas work fine except when I close the source sheet, it turnes into #REF error. I saw in one of the posts that you can not use INDIRECT formula on closed workbooks (INDIRECT is a part of the formula in my sheet) and downloaded the changingExternal. zip file as directed. Although, after staring at it for a while, I realized that I had no idea as to what was going on in there.

Hyperlink To Closed Files Display Error When Clicked

Sep 6, 2006

I am automatically generating a hyperlink to another document. The link that generates is: (I don't know if this qualifies as code, but I'll tag it anyhow...)

06-09-05 0000020 Name/06-09-05 0000020 Name.xls# 'Notes'A5

with 06-09-05 0000020 Name as a directory off the current App.path, and 06-09-05 0000020 Name.xls being the name of the file in the directory. It does have a sheet called "Notes". The thing of it is, the hyperlink takes me to the right place, it just gives me an error message every time saying "Reference not valid". How can it be taking me to the right place, and still giving me the error?

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity
cost

1
