Copy Data From Multiple Worksheets & Append To Single Worksheet

Feb 1, 2008

I have several exel workbooks (.xls files) and each workbook contains multiple worksheets. The number of worksheets and their names are variable. Each worksheet is formated in the same way. Now I want to copy an specific cell range on each worksheet and copy it into a single worksheet.

For example let assume that we have a a workbook called temperature.xls. This file contains 4 worksheets named: 40-1, 40-3, 40-5#, and 40-22. I want to copy a specific cell range (F46:O47) from all the worksheets in the workbook temperature.xls and paste only the values on a summary worksheet. This summary worksheet can be in the same workbook or in different one. I just wanted to add that I want to repeat this process 15 more times to summarize all my data containing workbooks. On average each workbook contains 35 worksheets so it is a tedious manual process.

Save A File As Multiple Filenames By Single Macro?

Aug 15, 2006

The reports I build work from a basic template with 10 or so separate, slightly different versions. In order to make them I currently update the data in the template and then click on "File>Save As..." ten times, renaming the file as appropriate.


Overall Report for yyyy/mm/dd
Partner A report for yyyy/mm/dd
Partner B report for yyyy/mm/dd
ad nauseum..

Is there an easy macro that could save and rename my file multiple times? It would need to accept manual input for the date. Preferably it would be something that I could easily tweak to change the filenames and number of reports saved as this is most of what I do.

Append Multiple Csv Files Into Master File?

Jan 13, 2010

I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?

Get Relative File Path Of Workbook

Feb 16, 2008

I work on multiple workbooks. They all calculate a lot of functions and I am forced to create multiple workbooks to do these calculations. Linking to other workbooks basically displays the results of workbook1 and works from there.


I need to keep an overview of these files, so I store them in different folders all within the same 'master' folder. So let's say: master folder is FolderMaster, and this contains folderA, folderB, folderC. FolderA contains workbookA1, workbookA2; folderB contains workbookB1, workbookC2 and finally folderC contains workbookC1 and workbookC2.

Suppose that this hierarchy might change. Moving eg workbook A2 to folderB. This would cause a #REF if it is linked in another workbook.

So I thought: organize your hierarchy in a 'master workbook' and store all paths to the individual files in a worksheet. If I link to a specific folder I do not directly link to the actual folder, but would use INDIRECT and grab the filepath from the masterworkbook. If the path to a workbook change I do not have to update all individual links, but only change the path in the masterworkbook. Right?

But 'how' is the big one here. How do you formulate your path to a file? It can not be the entire file path since that's variable... (sometimes 'hd:User1:....'; sometimes 'HD:User2'..."). So I think I need something as mentioned in this office help thing. But I have no clue. I do not want to use VBA, I hoped for another solution to this.

Cell Value Of Closed Workbook With Concatenated File Path In Cells

Sep 24, 2007

I have a report that is collated from several other workbooks. The source workbooks follow the same naming convention throughout the year and so I have managed to concatenate the file path to bring through the text of the filepath and cell reference however cannot work out how to get the value of the cell. For example, I have the file path in A1, file name in B1 and sheet and cell referernce in C1.

I am using {=(A1&B1&C1)} which gives me R:CONFIDENTIALREPORT FOLDER[REPORT 24.09.07.xls]Sheet1!$D$1. To make matters slightly more difficult, the source reports would be closed. Is there an easy way or am I going to have to do this in VBA.

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Copy 3 Cell Values And Append To Existing Database File

May 14, 2014

I'd like my macro (in an Excel 2010 workbook) to copy values from three worksheet cells and append them to an existing Access or SQL database file -- without having to leave my Excel spreadsheet or open any other programs. The database file simply needs to be appended. Keeping a running list. That file isn't being used for anything else, we can set it up however is necessary to do this.

For example, Excel cells A1, A2, and A3. Representing Job Name, Job Number and Job Total.

how make VBA do this(in SIMPLE terms)? Or give me a link of where to look or what to search for? I understand VBA but not Access or SQL.

Trim Full File Name & Path To File Path Only

Sep 27, 2006

I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...

I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...

How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...

An example of "DestFile" might be;
S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls
(the file name length may vary)
What code can I use to consistently trim it back to;
S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction
as the "DestFldr" variable?

Open Workbook Macro With Variable Path

Sep 15, 2006

I am having trouble getting a macro to open a specific file from an open workbook in the same folder based on the current path of the open file. The application is this... I have two files in the same folder. The first is for data entry and it contains a macro button that will open the second which is a template to which the data in the first will be copied. I can easily do this with a fixed path to the second file, however, I would like to be able to move or copy the folder containing these files to other locations or computers without having to change the path each time. I would like to base the path to the second file minus the file name on the first (already open file) path. Assuming that the first file containing the desired macro button is already open, here is one of many of my attempts...

Workbooks.Open " ActiveWorkbook.PathJob Tracker -.xls"

Assuming the second file is the active workbook, I achieved a similar path assignment when saving the file...

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "Application.Path/Jobs Active/" & "Job Tracker -" & Range(" '[Job Tracker -.xls]Specifications'!$A$6").Value

Combining Sheets Into Single Workbook - Keep The File Source Name

Feb 21, 2014

I am trying to combine sheets from various workbooks into a single file named "Combine". The goal is to have the sheets in Combine indicating their origin.

For example, with:
"File_1" having 2 sheets, "Sheet1" and "Sheet2"
"File_2" having 1 sheet, "Sheet1"
the goal is to have a file "Combine-forum" with the sheets named:
"Sheet1(File_1)", "Sheet2(File_1)", "Sheet1(File_2)"

I have grabbed pieces of code from various sources and read on the forums, but the result is different from what I want; I don't succeed to add the file name to the sheet name. Instead of the file name, the second part of the sheet name appears to be the order in which the workbook have been opened.

To be clearer, what I get is:
"Sheet1(1)", "Sheet2(1)", "Sheet1(2)"

Attachments: 3 compressed files to be combined. I suggest to copy them in C:TEMP and to copy this path in the InputBox (see below). Combine-forum.xlsm Best working file that I have been able to create

Macro To Copy Folders To Path Of Open Workbook Based On Cell Values

Aug 3, 2014

I have an Excel sheet that contains a few thousand folder paths in the first column. The first few cells in the column look similar to below.

C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010360
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010361
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010362
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010363
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010364
C:UsersNameDesktopFolder Copy12010365

I am trying to create a macro that will copy any folders that exist in any of the paths listed in the first column. The folders should be copied to the path of the open workbook containing the macro. Below is the macro I have currently, much of which was taken from information I found in this thread [URL]....


Sub wrapper3()
x = 1
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
While Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1) <> ""
v = InStrRev(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), "")
dest = ActiveWorkbook.Path & Mid(Sheets("Air").Cells(x, 1), v, 99)


This code seems to work fine if all of the folders exist to be copied. My problem is that some do not and it is creating a "Path Not Found" error for which I need a fix. If the folder doesn't exist at the path nothing should be copied and the next path can be evaluated.

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

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)
