Loop Through All Files In Subdirectories Of A Directory

Feb 26, 2010

I am having a bit of trouble with a bit of code. I have a bunch of code that I want to run on all excel files that live one level down from my main directory.

I have a general directory (orders) which contains a variable amount of subfolders each month (in picture below, 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve'), and I would like to look through all the excel files in 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve', but not in the main directory (orders), or any subdirectories within 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve'.

I am able to loop through all the excel files in the subdirectories individually if I hardcode the directory names, but as they are variable,

Scan Through All Files And Subdirectories

Jan 5, 2009

I am trying to scan through all files within a directory and all subdirectories to find files where the name begins with certain characters. Below is code that will accomplish this for a certain directory, but I do not know how to look through the subdirectories within the specified directory. So, the issues are:

1. How do I loop through each subdirectory within a specified directory?

2. I am trying to return the file name, path name (separate from the file name), and modified date. I can return the name. I can return the path, but it includes the name. Is there a way to return just the path?

3. What is the code to return the modified date of the file?

Lots Of XLS Files In A Directory

Feb 6, 2009

Lots of XLS files in a directory (C: emp). Each book has only a sheet1 with the data.

I have another workbook that i need to use to overwrite certain values in one column from each book.

The workbook I have has a column A and B, ID and value.

In each file inside the directory, A3 to last row used in A had each ID. If the id matches to an id in the workbook with the new values, I want to take the value from B in the override table and put it in C in the file. Look at each ID in each file against each ID in the override, replace and close.

Finding Files In A Directory

Jul 18, 2006

I have the following
Sub test()
Set fs = Application.FileSearch
With fs
.LookIn = "\directory"
.Filename = "3000333"
If .Execute > 0 Then
MsgBox "There were " & .FoundFiles.Count & _
" file(s) found."
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
MsgBox .FoundFiles(i)
Next i
Else
MsgBox "There were no files found."
End If
End With
End Sub

It looks into a specific directory, and tells me how many files beginning with 3000333 there are in that folder. I have over a thousand files in the folder, 13 of which begins with 3000333. However, according to this code, it only finds 10. After searching for various different strings, I've found out that it doesn't search for any file that has a modified date later than 6/2/2006. However, if i just use .Filename = "3000333" , that is, search for all the files in the directory, I get all the files, even those that were modified later than 6/2/2006 that I could not previously find.

Run Macro On All Files In A Directory

It selects a particular selection of the active workbook, parses it in a particularly thrilling way, and writes the result to a text file. I'd like it to do this for ALL the files in a particular directory (somewhere over 500 files, if that matters).

List All Files In Directory

Feb 7, 2008

I have created a spreadsheet with VBA code that lists the files in a directory. The code is as follows:

ListFiles = True
Set Sh = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(sFileSheet)
lstAttr = vbNormal + vbReadOnly + vbHidden
lstAttr = lstAttr + vbSystem + vbDirectory
lstAttr = lstAttr + vbArchive

If sDirectory = "" Then
If iColumn = 1 Then
sPath = "C:PensionDataPensionPath" ' Set the path, must end with backslash
Else
sPath = "C:PensionDataWorkBench" ' Set the path, must end with backslash
End If
Else
If Right(sDirectory, 1) <> "" Then
sPath = sDirectory & ""
Else
sPath = sDirectory
End If
End If

sFileName = Dir(sPath, lstAttr) ' Retrieve the first entry.
lDataRow = 1
lRows = 1

This works on my PC and it works on other PCs. However, the one PC that it should and must work on, it does not. There is no file listing created.

I have duplicated the files and the folders on my PC and the files in the directories are listed. However, on that one PC, there is no file listing.

Directory Listing: Skips .zip Files

Jun 10, 2006

I'm using a piece of code I found here on Ozgrid to create a list of files in a specific folder. And even though this worked fine for me a week ago, now when I run this same macro, the. zip files are left out of the list, even though I'm specifying msoFileTypeAllFiles. Archive files with other extensions, such as .tar.gz, do make the list. I get the feeling that my zip files are being considered folders instead of files. Do you have any idea why this is happening, or what to do to get that list of zip files?

Sub HyperlinkXLSFiles()
Dim lCount As Long
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.EnableEvents = False
On Error Resume Next
With Application.FileSearch
.NewSearch
'Change path to suit
.LookIn = "o:DataFeeds"

Import Few Txt Files From One Directory To One Sheet

Jul 26, 2006

My text files look like this(each has different number of rows):
2006-08-25 13:33:20 82,8 g
2006-08-25 13:34:10 58,5 g

between each column there is Tab

To import them from one directory (directories are named as month e.g. 8) I used:

Sub Consolidate()
Dim mnthNum As Integer
Dim myBook As Workbook
Dim myRows As Long

With Application
.DisplayAlerts = False
.EnableEvents = False
. ScreenUpdating = False
End With

and it works almost perfectly.. the problem is that each time it loads next file it overwrites the previous..

e.g. if i have in my directory 4 files and sum of the rows is 20 it will show only 17. The import is good because I checked it with debugger but each time a new file is copied it starts from last row of previous file.. that's the problem I can't solve...

Loop Through Multiple Files And Call Macros (but Unable To Loop)

May 14, 2014

Macro which loops through a number of files and calls the same macro in each of them. Unfortunately when I add "Application.Run..." to the code, it no longer loops through the process and instead stops after updating the first file in the loop. If I remove the "Application.Run..." code and add any other code, the loop works fine and it continues through the process repeating all the steps for each file found.

Why it stops after one file when using "Application.Run..." to call the macros?

NB I have a list of path and file names starting in row 8 of columns A and C. Each file in the list has a macro called UpdateS1 and promoupdate1.

Sub C_Run_Loop_Macro()
Dim lastRow As Long
Dim i As Long

List All Files In Directory In An Excel File

Apr 2, 2009

In my search I found several example similar to what I need, but nothing I could adapt to filt my needs, (at least not wim my limited skills).

Here what I need to do:

I have multilple Excel files in a directory. (M:/Archived PO Responses/Domestic). On a daily basis, these files are processed via VBA, and deleted after processing. What I need to do is, prior to processing and deleting these files, create an ongoing log of the filenames in that directory.

Example:

The macro would open an Excel file named "Processed Orders.xls", which is stored on the network drive "M:". It would then append all of the filenames in the directory mentioned above to a sheet named "Processed Orders" in that workbook, below any filenames that already exist.

Extract Data From Files Within The Same Directory Or Below And Place In New Workbook

May 3, 2006

Firstly, I have attached a file called test2 which has two sheets within it, one called list and one called 12345. This is for demonstration purposes only as in real life these are both separate files.

What I am trying to do is create a history in the file called list that extracts certain data from the file called 12345 and places it in a more user friendly format. No problems with the formulas etc, just a case of a few ifs and buts.

My real problem lies in the fact that file 12345 is only one of hundreds of files and in order to create the history, I have to repeat the process on all the other files, so that the list grows as I copy the data.
Again for demo purposes, the file "list" sits in the C root ie C:list and the job files sit in C:files*.*.

Is there a way to automate the process so that formulas or VBA residing in the file "list" searches through the C:files*.* and populates the list as it runs through them.

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day
