Loop Through All Files Rename And Save In Another Folder
Feb 27, 2013
I have excel files in a folder, I need a macro to loop through all files, rename them and save them in another folder. the file's name is available in a cell in each file, I am able to get the file name as text (I had to dig a little to get the text as it was between ""). Well I am stuck right now because the macro is doing what it's supposed to do for one excel file only and does not continue with the rest of the available files for a reason.
Dim Bk As Variant
Dim n As Integer
Dim NewName As String
I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.
I need a vba code to
- choose a folder instead of a file - find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d" - rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.
I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.
I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.
Is this possible with vba?
Here a code i found in the link mentioned above, that i have applied and works - but needs to be modified to meet my needs: Sub GetImportFileName()
Dim Filt As String Dim FilterIndex As Integer Dim Title As String Dim FileName As Variant Dim newname As String
I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).
I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.
For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.
I have used macro to ftped a couple of files to my desktop and save them in a folder but i have problems performing the following.
1) Count the number of files in this directory "C:Summary_Reports_from_VBA". Note that the number of files is not fixed every time.
2) Rename each files to .txt files. (intially files do not have any extension and we do not know the name of the file until it has been ftped over but all files will end with a term "sorts" eg renaming of "xxxsorts" to "xxxsorts.txt")
3) Save each renamed files in an Array such that i can "opentext" each file in an excel worksheet. So if there's multiple files, there will be multiple worksheets.
I would like to create a code that will open all workbooks in folder "A" one at a time and then close the work book after another code is executed. So one workbook will open and while the workbook is open, I will call another code to format the active workbook and then the active workbook will be saved in folder "B" and closed and go to the next workbook in folder "A" to start all over. The folders are saved on the desktop.
I did search but I couldn't find what I want. I have a load of .csv files in a folder. I want to loop through all files, run the macro below and close the .csv file without saving. My macro copied data onto another workbook and saves, but I don't know how to loop through all files within a folder.
I need some code that will open each file in the folder, run the macro below and close it again. I don't know how to put code tags in so I have put the code in a .txt.
macro to run as a loop on all files in a given folder but allow for the option to Browse for the folder I want this to run in?

I am trying to process 60+ data files. I've recorded/written macros that do all of the processing, and now I would like to write a loop that will go through a folder with the data files (.txt, tab delimitted), and run the code on each file. I am using the Mac Version of Excel 2004. I have tried to adapt some code that I found in the forums, but after fixing a few errors, now nothing is happening when I run the code. The code is below. I have it in a module in the VBA editor.
length of the code; I'm assuming the problem is in the very beginning or end (the code I added for the loop), as the code in the middle that does the actual processing works.
Dim strDocPath As String Dim strCurrentFile As String
I want to open all csv files in a folder and just copy and paste some columns into another file. I am having a bit of trouble with the following code which can be found at ozgrid and I have modified slightly so it looks in the current directory instead of a fixed path...
Code: Sub RunCodeOnAllFiles() Dim lCount As Long Dim MyDir as string
For starters, if I don't use on error resume next I get a runtime error 445: object doesn't support this action. So when I use the on error resume next, then by the time it gets to the foundfiles line, there are no variables set, so on the next line (workbooks.open) nothing happens.
Is there an easier (more up to date?) method to open all csv files (or excel files) in a folder?
There is a folder with all excel files with the same structure. I need a macro, who opens one file by one in a folder, change the layout, and save it too same place with same name. Changing the layout will I do with macro record.
Sub AllFiles() Dim MyFolder As String 'Path containing the files for looping Dim MyFile As String 'Filename obtained by Dir function Dim MyBook As Workbook MyFolder = "D:LABODIESTSOST_DIEST" 'Assign directory to MyFolder variable
I have this existing macro which saves each tab into a separate excel file. However, I'd like for it to also save them together in a new folder using the current month and date (named: QA Files May_05.06.14). The month and date would change according to current month/date. How would I incorporate that into this code? I am not good with macros.
Sub tabname() Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In Worksheets ws.Activate ws.Name = Range("D1").Value Next
I have a number of spreadsheets in a folder called country (each sheet is the name of a region). These sheets are linked to another sheet called master which is in another folder.
The regional sheets all have a list of wrap codes and pull details specific to each code from the master sheet. All wrap codes for all sheets are stored in the master, details for wrpas are manually entered here as well as any other associated information.
The link is kept by way of an index match formula used to populate information from the master for all wrap codes in the regional sheet.
Each of the regional sheets act as a report for a specific region and the master is the main source. Every week we need to open the regional sheets (some reside in different folders/subfolders) update the index match formulas in the sheet so that the data is refreshed and then save as a new file with data as values to another folder for reporting.
I am looking for a code that can automatically update all of the excel sheets in a given folder and then save them to a new folder automatically.
I have very very limited knowledge of VB (did make a hello world dialog box once) and am stuck as to any way to automate this process.
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
how I can loop through folders to select files starting with a certain word and copy all of them to a different folder and rename them. The folder structure is given below
Company 1(parent folder) North South East(sub folder) West(sub folder) Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec
In the above structure, the files are present inside each folders Jan, feb...Dec under the regions North, South East n west. note that I have to select files starting with "Sales" and copy them into a new folder(say results) and rename copied files as Sales1.xls, Sales2.xls etc. (Files are not present in the folder company1, north, south, east and east.)
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 have up to 50 workbooks in one folder with data in a specific range. I also have one workbook which includes additional data, including conditional formatting and dropdowns. I need to copy the desired range from the first workbook in the source folder to the second workbook, then save the latter to my destination folder, using the same name as the first. I need to repeat this process for all workbooks in the source folder.
I have a list of items in an excel sheet... 500 of them... and there are images for them in an other folder... The problem is those images are in 1000's and I only need those 500 images.. Images are saved as "SKU.jpg eg NS2354.jpg and we have an SKU column in excel as well .. SKU and their images have same name...
Is there any solution to pick up only those 500 images from those thousands of images?
Is it possible to save those 500 images in an other folder?
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.
