Macro To Copy From One File And Paste Under The Last Used Row Of Another File?

Jun 26, 2012

I already have code that I believe is supposed to do what I'm trying to accomplish. However, it doesn't fully work. The Macro is below:

Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Documents and Settingsplp138DesktopExample 1.xls"
On Error Resume Next
With Workbooks("Example 2.xls")[code]....

Basically, what I'm trying to accomplish is to have a certain range from one file copied, and pasted in the next available (empty) row of another file. While debugging I see that everything is working except for the actual pasting.

Copy And Paste Value Macro / Save Individual File To Right Of Specific Tab

Mar 25, 2013

I have a current macro that saves each sheet as their own file. The first 10-15 sheets are not really necessary, so I typically delete them once the macro has run. I am looking to add two things to my current code:

1. Add a tab called Start. Make the macro look for 'Start' tab and then just save each sheet to the right of that as its own file.

2. Save each sheet in the macro as just a copy/paste value. They current have a lot of links and it makes each file close to 3MB. That makes it incredibily difficult to paste all in one email.

Here is the current code:

Sub CreateWorkbooks()
'Creates an individual workbook for each worksheet in the active workbook.
Dim wbDest As Workbook
Dim wbSource As Workbook
Dim sht As Object
Dim strSavePath As String
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

[Code] ..........

Excel 2013 :: File Size Grows When Using Macro To Copy / Paste To New Workbook

May 9, 2014

I'm using Excel 2013 on Windows 7.

I have an Excel file which has a macro that sucks in data from a number of separate files (two Excel, a varying number of csv). The macro grabs all the individual files and loads them into one of three worksheets with some formatting, sorting, and structuring on the way. All good so far.

I then need to take two of the worksheets and copy them to a new Workbook which I can send out to some users. So I use the Workbooks.Add method, and use the Selection.Copy on just the data (UsedRange.Rows/Columns.Count to ensure it is only the data) and Selection.PasteSpecial with the xlPasteColumnWidths, xlPasteValues, and xlPasteFormats options to copy the data over. None of the data is filtered. Just straight data.

I would expect the newly added workbook to be smaller than the one with the macros because the one with the macros has two extra sheets that I don't transfer, and the sheets I do transfer are identical.

And that's where it gets weird. The file with the macros and more data is 18.7Mb, but the new one with only two sheets is 24.8Mb. One is .xlsm and the other is .xlsx (because it has no macros).

I've tried opening the new workbook and saving as .xlsm (no material difference to the size) and as .xls (it got even bigger). I've opened the new workbook, gone to the end of the data and deleted all the blank rows and columns, but no effect (because the rows are already empty).

Why would the file with less in it be so much bigger (or bigger at all)?

Macro To Open File, Copy Paste As Values And Save As Excel Html

Feb 16, 2010

I have a folder containing 40 single sheet excel workbooks and I would like to automate following tasks:

- Open each excel file (need to open the file so as to update it since it gets the data from another workbook through =formulas)

- Copy paste as values

- Save this as excel html in the same folder as original excel files (keeping the original file name)

- Close (original excel file should not be changed ie formulas should remain in place, only the html file will contain values)

- Since there will always be xHtml files with same name need the macro to replace the excisting file

My abilities with excel are limited to functions, no VBA knowledge other than finding ready codes and pasting them in the module.

Since this routine is to be run almost daily the macro should run all files, instead of one by one.

I just hope that I am not asking too much for excel to handle and I hope that explanation is clear.

Copy And Paste From External File

Jan 20, 2009

I am trying copy and paste data from an external file. The steps I am using to get data are as follows:

1. open external file
2. copy desired data from external file (any number of rows & columns)
3. close the external file
4. paste data starting with designated cell.

The code works fine up until the part of the code where I want to paste special (I need to preserve cell formatting). Error is "PasteSpecial method of Range class failed". No sure why code doesn't work at this point.

Extract Data And File Names From File In Folder And Paste Into One Sheet?

Jan 13, 2013

The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.

how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?

It would make it easier to track the data in column B.

Sub CopyFromFile()
Dim fPath As String
Dim lRow As Long


I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.

The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.

Select File, Specific Tab, Then Copy/paste

Feb 13, 2010

Feedback.xls is the file I want to have my macro run in. By pushing a button to run the macro, it will prompt the user to select where their file is on their computer. This file will have different file names based on the end user. For example sake, I've included CAP.xls.

After the user selects their file, it will prompt them to choose which tab to copy and paste data from. Typically, there will be 30+ tabs on their worksheet. For example sake, I've created 5 tabs on CAP.xls. The tabs in their workbook will be labeled as I have labeled mine, M1 CAP, M2 CAP & M3 CAP. Therefore, it should prompt the user to select which tab to choose from.

After the user selects their tab (M1 CAP, M2 CAP, M3 CAP), the macro should prompt the user to choose which row of information to copy. In CAP.xls, I have a few rows of information to choose from. They all start with FY10A1, FY10A2, FY10A3, but this information could change. Once they select the row, it will copy each of those fields onto the respectively labeled fields on Feedback.xls.

Find File By Date. Copy & Paste

Dec 9, 2006

I work for a chicken hatchery. So, a couple preliminary things by way of explanation:

1. The day we place our eggs in the incubators, we fill in an excel file containing a list of all the farms from which those eggs came. This is called the "Egg List" workbook.

2. After 21 days have passed, and the eggs have turned into chicks, we open that original file. We copy cells from one column of that file (the workbook is called the “Egg List”, we copy “Sheet1” cells B7:B50), and paste them into another Workbook called “Chick List.”

My question is this:

Is there a macro I can put into the “Chick List” workbook that will automatically locate that particular “Egg list” workbook file that is 21 days old, and paste the contents of its cells B7:B50 into cells A7:A50 in my “Chick List” Workbook. It is preferable if this can be done without opening the old “Egg list” file. But if this is not possible, I’ll take whatever I can get.

Here is what I have, which works okay as far as finding the file. I bootlegged this from another part of this helpful website. But I cannot figure out the syntax for getting cells B7:B50 from the Egg list to copy into cells A7:A50 of the Chick List.

Dim FSO As Object

Sub ProcessFiles()
Dim i As Long
Dim sFolder As String
Dim fldr As Object
Dim Folder As Object
Dim file As Object
Dim Files As Object
Dim this As Workbook
Dim cnt As Long
Dim filenew As Object

Open Chosen File, Copy Range & Paste Into Workbook

May 4, 2008

I'd like to know if it is possible to run a macro in a workbook that will open another workbook (of the users choice) extract data from it, such as columns from its sheets then paste that data into the workbook the macro is running from. The file to be opened will change, so i've found some code that enables the user to select the file to open then open it.

Dim strFile As String
strFile = Application. GetOpenFilename
If strFile <> "False" Then Workbooks.Open strFile

This brings up the standard windows choose file to open box, then opens the selected file. Am I correct in thinking that the Dim here will store the file name I select in the open file box? If so, I'd like to know how to select the workbook using the dim so I can manipulate it from the workbook I'm running the macro in. Incidentally, once the the data has been copied, I'd like the workbook opened with the macro to be closed.

Transfers (copy/paste) Information From One Master File To Several Other Individual Files

Apr 16, 2009

I have a macro that transfers (copy/paste) information from one master file to several other individual files. The macro works, but I would like
to enhance it by have it spit out errors in the process as follows: if cell A42 on file VP1.xls is not equal to Cell C35 on file Masterfile.xls then make cell E2 ERROR and fomat E2 bold-red, otherwise do nothing. The macro should continue regardless, I just want it to spot errors.
I think this is pretty simple is just a matter of inserting an IF formula in the macro which is something i don't know how to do yet.

Copy / Paste To Text File Adding Extra Quotation Mark

Nov 3, 2011

I'm using =CONCATENATE() to create Html code.

HTML Code:
=CONCATENATE("<img class=",""""&"alignleft size-medium"&""""," ","title=",""""&D6&""""," ","src=",""""&
"http://www."&E6&"/images/"&C6&""""," ","alt=",""""&F6&""""," />")

The code looks good in the cell:

HTML Code:
<img class="alignleft size-medium" title="Image title here" src=
"" alt="Image alt here" />

But when I copy/paste onto a txt file, its adding an extra (unnecessary) Quotation mark (see code below)

HTML Code:
<img class=""alignleft size-medium"" title=""Image title here"" src=
"""" alt=""Image alt here"" />

Export Data From A Template File To Total List File Using Macro In Template File

Dec 18, 2012

I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):

Macro 1: clears order
Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.

It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.

I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.

Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons.
Row 11 includes the heading for order data.

For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.

The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)

File and Folder info:

To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later):
Template file name: template_order.xlsm
Template file location: \servershared emplate

Total list file name: total_list.xlsx
Total list file location: \servershared otal

Selection info:

The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10
The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11
The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty).
(If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).

When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.

Is It Possible For A User To Select A File And Cell To Paste In During A Macro

Sep 3, 2008

I was planning to do was have a macro where the document opened and the cell that information was pasted in was decided depending on which cell was selected when the macro was run.

This worked fine, but it does mean that it needs someone who can edit the VBscript every time there is a new starter or someone leaves so isn't really viable.

What I was wondering, is if it is possible for me to start a macro, which then drags in the information I need from a text file, does all the calculations and rearranging, and then brings up a prompt for the user to open the document they want to paste it in, click on the cell where the pasting will start, and then the macro continues from there?

To try to explain it in as clear a way as I can. Say we have three managers, Alan, Brenda and Charlie. In Alan's team there are 10 staff members. Aaron, Bill etc.etc. If we have just run the report for Aaron, the macro will run, automatically drag all the information in and rearrange it, then it will pause while the user opens up the "Alan" spreadsheet, they select the "Aaron" first cell, click OK or something, and then the macro continues on its happy way?

Sort Multiple File Data & Copy Matching Records To New File

Feb 13, 2008

This is a sample of the data with which I am working. I know that a macro can do what I need, but I am only versed in Excel formulas and not that much programming. I need to be able to first sort the data by Column C ("Element Type"), then by Columns E, F, G ("Year", "Month", "Day"). Then, I need to be able to copy all rows that have the same "Element Type" and "Year" to a new file, using the same header from the original spreadsheet on each new spreadsheet - doing this multiple times until the end of the file is reached.

Ideally, the new files would have a strict naming convention: XXXXXX-ZZZZ (YYYY).xls, where the X's are the value of the "COOP Station ID" in Column A, the Z's are the "Element Type" from Column C, and the Y's are the "Year" from Column E. If this theoretical macro were run with the Sample Data file I provided, it should result in the creation of five new workbooks. Is there a way to write a macro to do this, or at least something similar

Macro: Paste Cell From Specific Files To 1 General File

Aug 17, 2009

i have about 80 files that all have the same structure. I also have a general excel file that I need to fill with values from each of the 80 files. I'd like to use a macro that can be applied to each of the 80 files at a time (or at the same time, if that's possible) so I can copy the cells (only the text, not the formula) I need from each individual file to the general sheet.

each file is:

xyz 123
abc 456
ghi 956

I need to copy the "123" to a cell in the general sheet, "456" to a different cell in the general sheet and so on (to be able to choose which cell in the general sheet I am copying to).

User Input For File & Path For File Copy

Jan 26, 2008

Below is the current code I have for File Copy before the workbook closes. This file will be distributed all over and obviously will not have the same old path and new path locations as I have in my code also will not have the same file name. Is there anyway to still perform the file copy without knowing the old path and file name and possibly have message box pop up to ask the copy to location and use that in the new path string?

Sub Macro1()
Dim fs As Object
Dim oldPath As String, newPath As String
oldPath = "I:EXLDATAMC Daily" '<---Where the file is currently located
newPath = "H:South RegionOrlando Mail Services2008DI" 'Since the super shared drive is super slow we will just copy and replace this file each time before we close and of course after we save
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.CopyFile oldPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls", newPath & "" & "OrlandoMail.xls"
Set fs = Nothing

Match & Copy Data From File To File

Aug 23, 2008

Is there an easy way to automatically copy data from 1 Excel spreadsheet to another when the data is slightly out of order? Currently an admin copies and pastes from file 1 to file 2 manually. There are approximately 800 names to copy. It would be ideal to type a command or press a key and have file 2 updated automatically. Is there a feasible way to accomplish this without spending a lot of money or time?

file 1 file 2

john 100 john 100
june 200 lance 50
marie 150 june 75
stan 100 marie 125
phone 50 stan 200
hold 25

In the example above, if lance doesn't appear in file 1 his amount doesn't get copied and his 50 remains the same. The amounts do not get added, just pasted over from file 1 to file 2 with the days sales results. Only the names on file 2 get pasted over. Phone and hold amounts in file 1 are ignored.

Macro To Download Csv File From A Dynamic Date Based Url To A File Location

I have a requirement to download a lot of historical data files from the archieve of an website. The url goes something like this: [URL]....

This downloads file for 21022014 ie. 21-Feb-2014. I need to be able to have a facility to have a selection criteria on my user form (in excel) where I specify a date range and the macro automatically downloads all the valid excel files available within that date range (files for Saturday, Sunday and some holiday dates will not be available in the website archive database) one after the other (like at single clcik of button) into a specific location (predefined viz.. c:/Users/EOD files/) on my laptop. Best would be if I am able to select the save location run time by using a 'Browse' like feature where I go and choose my local laptop folder...same type when we try uploading a file from our laptop to the web..

VBA For Bypassing Replace File Prompt When Saving As A File In Macro

I am setting up a "save as" macro that saves a file by replacing another file in a folder. Even though the macro has been recorded by approving the replacement (the prompt appears "the file --- already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"), when I run the macro, I am again prompted about replacing the file. Is it possible to avoid the prompt so the file is automatically saved by replacing the named file?

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).
