Macro- List Of CSV Files In A Folder Called Balances
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
CSV filenames all start with ddmm so e.g. 0111

Hyperlink List Of All Files In Folder
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.
List Of Links To All Files In Folder
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.
List Names Of Workbook Files In Folder
I tried to write some VBA code to loop through all the files in a folder and return the name of the file. (In my current example, all the files are excel workbooks)
Here is the code I have used:
Dim lCount As Long
Dim wbResults As Workbook
Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook
Set wbCodeBook = ThisWorkbook
'Change path to suit
.LookIn = "G:CFOMiddle OfficeDannyFine Tunning for JP"
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
However, when I tried to run the code, it give me the error message saying: the defined type of the variable are not been defined. Seems to me, that VBA dont have the variable type as Folder, or File.
Macro To Import From .csv Files
1. I've recorded a macro that imports values from 6 different .csv files at once. The problem is that not all of these files are going exist upon import. Is there a way to tell the macro to only import if the file exists? And to skip if the import of that file if it doesn't exist? Right now the debugger stops the macro because of file not found.
2. I want to press a button on Sheet 1 that copies Sheet 1 into a new Sheet that's named with today's date. E.g. I press the "Archive"-button, the sheet is copied to a new sheet with the name "051308".
Copy Files To New Folder Path Based On Cell List
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?
Macro To Convert All Worksheets To Csv Files
1. I need your help in converting all the worksheets in a workbook to CSV format. Is it possible to do that with a macro?
2. I have 20 workbooks, each with 12 worksheets. I need to combine the data in all the workbooks to create a database. As I will not be
able to do that in Excel (due to the row limit), I am thinking of using MS Access.
Therefore I am planning to convert these excel files into CSV files and then use the CSV files to create an MS Access database.

Execute A Macro In All Files In A Folder
I found the following code to execute a macro in all excel files in a folder. Sounds amazing! I have a code to add to it, however I am having issues getting it to work. take a look at it and let me know what (more like, how many things). I am adding this to the Sheet 1 Worksheet.
Running Macro Across Multiple Files In Same Folder
I would like my macro to go to a certain folder- in this case N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run, open each workbook therein ( to this end I have found the first part of the code below on another thread) and perform the ExcelDietMacro (also below). I am missing something though as nothing is happening, would anyone know from a quick glance what is wrong? Should I have these as 2 seperate Sub End Subs or combined into one? I know that the Excel Diet is correct thanks to the original designer and Rory on the forum for getting it adjusted to my needs.
Also each workbook within the folder will have the same password to open, is it possible to insert some code in the macro to do this automatically?
Dim MyFileName, MyPath As String
Dim MyBook As Workbook
MyPath = "N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run"
MyFileName = Dir(MyPath & "*.xls")
Do Until MyFileName = ""
Workbooks.Open MyPath & MyFileName

Loop Through Folder, Run Macro On All Files
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
strDocPath = "Macintosh HD"":Users:thomasarmstrong:Desktop:SF08_Macrosv2:Loop_test:directory:"

Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro
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.

Macro To Load All Files Within A Folder To New Tabs With File Name As Sheet Name
I wish for a macro to look in to a directory which remains constant, but then looks within a folder which is specified via a cell value in order to load a specific sheet from each file in to the workbook I am currently using. I wish for the loading to be done without having to open the workbooks manually, so something which opens them copies the data from the sheet specified and then closes.
This data is then to be pasted in to a new sheets within my workbook which are named after the file names that it pulls the "dump" sheet from.
As a side note, I will be using these sheets to produce calculations hopefully automatically as soon as they are loaded. They all have the same "shape" but contain differing data. Will it be easier in the long run for me to use this method of pasting data to new sheets named as their file names assuming there will be around 25 "dump" sheets needing to be loaded or would i be better having them paste all to one sheet just underneath each other with a couple of rows separating them?
Macro To Copy Selected Cells From All The .xls Files In A Folder
I have a folder "D:Documents and SettingsRakesh", which has many .xls files. Each file has a sheet called 'Cover Note'. I want to copy cells B2, C2, D4 and F3 from 'Cover Note' of each file.
These cells should be pasted in the current sheet, one row for each file. First cell of each row should have the source file name.
It would be better if macro can prompt to select the directory where ther source files resides.
Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them
I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.
how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)
Saving Comma Separated .txt Files As .csv Files
I have a large number of .txt files that are comma separated files (but not saved with the .csv extension) that I need to convert to files with the .csv extension.
Is there an easy way to do this for all files in a given folder? Ideally, the files don't even need to be opened as they are are quite large in size (70MB+) and there are a lot of them (500+).
Convert Csv Files To Tab Delimited Files

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files
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
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
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.
Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only
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)?
Macro To List Folder Names Within A Directory
i'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.

How Can I Merge Two CSV Files
I have two CSV's which are updated on a regular basis.
CSV Master - contains about 23,000 rows at the moment and will continue to grow.
CSV Master - does have a header row
CSV Master has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column A so all unique ID's start at "A2"
CSV Master - contains 31 columns ("A through to and including AE") this is a fixed figure.
---- Then I have ---
CSV Extras - generally contains about 200 rows and its unlikely it will ever be more but is contents are different every time it is used.
CSV Extras - does have a header row
CSV Extras has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column "A" so all unique ID's start at "A2" and these ID's are a common denominator with both sheets.
CSV Extras - contains 44 columns (last column is AR) which is a fixed figure,
CSV Extras - columns "B up to and including AE" are all intentionally all blank fields.
--- Hope that explains where I am, this is what I need to do ----
I need to be able to look up the ID's (that are in column A in both CSV's) and create a single CSV. In my mind that is a Vlookup of some sort but I can't get it to work
I want to open CSV Master and then, If the ID exists in CSV Extras then fetch all the data in columns "AF to AR" and add it to the CSV Master.
Opening CSV Files As Is

Multiple Csv Files
I have a question about CSV files...I have to import about 80 csv files into excel as separate sheets in the same workbook. I can only get it to import into its own workbook. Is there a way to import all of them into the same workbook all at once?
Also, I am currently using csv files, but if what I want done can be done with a different file type, it doesn't matter.
Macro Opening List Of Xls Files
I have a long list of .xls files. I have to open each file, copy a few columns of data and paste it into a single xls file. I can write a macro to do this, the only problem I have is how do I get the macro to open all the xls files with different names ? I am thinking something like sorting the files by date and then let the macro open files from the oldest to the most recent one, but is there a command to do that ?
Creating CSV Files From Spreadsheet
I am trying to create CSV files from Excel spreadsheet for each tab. But when I convert these CSV files, text in cell is limiting to 255 characters, in otherwords it is getting truncated after 255characters. I am using Excel 2003 version.
And also when convereted these windows CSV files to UNIX csv files using the command "DOS2UNIX", some charaters becoming special characters. For exmaple, I have the actual text as "If AEENDTC ne '' then do; " and is becoming "If AEENDTC ne æÆ then do; " Do you have any idea why it is doing this.
Csv Ranges - Active Files
I am trying to pull a selected range from a series of csv files, and copy them into a specific range in an excel workbook, do some caluclations, and repeat the process. My problem is that after I open the csv file, the program stops and does not pick up the selected range in the csv file. I tried to use a Windows().Activate command on the csv file to ensure that is is picking up the correct workbook , but the bug says teh subscript is out of range...I am sure I am doing something really stupid, and there is a simpler way of writing this but I can't figure it out.
Open CSV Files By Date

Why Does Excel Open Some Files As Csv
I receive excel reports every day. But the last couple of days when downloading the reports I get them as csv. Also older reports I have saved on the hard disk open as csv.
Well, the ones I have saved have are now csv files and I haven't done anything (knowingly) to change them to csv.
Splitting *.csv Files Into Batches
I have a number of csv files with 30,000 - 60,000 records.
I'm looking for some code which will split them into batches of 250 record batches.
Each file id named FY838A, FY838B, FY838C etc.
I need something which will open the file then copy the first row (Field names), open a new book and paste the headers.
Then cut the first 250 records, rows 2:251 and paste them into the new book.
I then need to save them as a *.csv
All are named BatchFY838A (then B, C, D for each one)
Here's the main bit I can't figure out:
I would like to create a destination folder for each file.
I already have a main folder:
but when each file is created I need to make a folder for it to sit in:
(I need to create the FY838@ folder then the destination ones after that)
Until there are no records left to batch. i.e. the code needs to stop when it's completed the list (each one has a different amount of records)
Additional. Along with this I have 3 Word.doc's which need to be placed in each of the above folders, can I do this at the same time)
The end result is to be 3 Word.doc's and a *.csv file in each folder, this is for a huge Mail Merge which is already coded, so each files content will be 4 documents with exactly the same names.
Formatting Not Retained With CSV Files
1. Open notepad file. Type 01. Save it as "Book2.CSV". Close notepad.
2. Open Book2.CSV in excel
You will see that 01 is shown as 1.
I would like to retain 01 in Cell A1. How do I do this in CSV?
I know how to retain formatting in excel but not in CSV. You can do the following in Excel files:
In the cell A1, right click and choose 'Format Cells'. In the Number tab, choose the category as Custom. In the Type on the right hand side, I type in 00. The value 1 in the cell A1 gets converted to 01.
1. why is this formatting not retained with CSV files?
2. Is there a way to programmatically (macros) to correct this?
Importing CSV Files In A Worksheet
The Excel 2007 help menu claims that you can open a CSV file directly into a worksheet but I always get all the fields clumped-up into the first column.
After many tribulations I was able to import it through the Data import menu (text).
Could someone explain what I am doing wrong with the first method described above. It appears that the CSV converter is not working properly on my computer.
Loop Macro To Open/copy List Of Files
I am trying to write a macro to open a specific file (i.e site 1) and copy a range and paste that data into another workbook (Comparisons).
I can manage to write the macro to do this one by one, but ideally I would like to write some sort of loop macro that will go down a specific range of files (column A), listing the copy range (column B), and where to paste (column C) until it hits a blank row.
That way I do not have to keep re-programming my comparison spreadsheet every time a new site opens.
VLOOKUP & Lists (range Called List That Has 3 Columns Of Data)
I have a range called List that has 3 columns of data:
Corporate Human Resources Services PMA
Corporate Procurement Director
Ops Central Customer Services Lost Property Office
Ops Travel Information Travel Info Call Ctr
Ops Travel Information Centres Travel Info Centres
I have 3 columns on the entry sheet called Business Unit (Col A), Department(Col B) and Sub-Department (Col C). I want to limit the choice in column B to based on the selection in Column A in the form of a drop-down list e.g choosing Corporate gives a list of Human Resources Services; Procurement.
I am using the list option for field validation and the following formula in cell B2: =INDIRECT(VLOOKUP(A2,List,2,0)). I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong as I don't get a list of options just a blank cell. Do I need to use a different formula other than VLOOKUP..?
CSV Files Open In New File Instance
I regularly process CSV files that are downloaded from various websites. The problem is, for some reason many (but NOT all) downloaded CSV files do not open in "Microsoft Office Excel" and thus, my primary workspace. They instead open in a separate instance of "Excel.exe" which is actually kinda nice because I can treat each separately, move windows around, etc. The problem is, macros that are in my primary workbook, cannot be seen by the secondary instance(s). So while I have created a number of nifty macros to clean up all the data and format it exactly how I want it in the blink of an eye, I can't run them when a file opens in its own instance.
1) How can I force ALL .csv files to open in the primary "Microsoft Office Excel" application? NOTE: Using the normal Windows Explorer "Open With..." function and setting the default application only works for LOCAL files, and does NOT work to control how remotely downloaded .csv files are opened.
2) How can I make it so that macros can be seen between Excel instances - such that when I choose to see macros in "all open workbooks", it will actually see the macros in the open workbook in the other primary Excel instance?
Automatically Convert Text Files To CSV
I have a lot of .txt files that needed to be converted to .csv file format. Right now I am doing it manually using MS Excel i.e. File > Open. For each file, I need to specify the length of each fields one by one, so it is quite an effort for me.
Is there any way to automate this process using MS Excel or any other existing programs?
