Macro To Copy Data From Open Workbooks

Feb 12, 2009

I'm just starting out on my journey into VBA and this forum has been a valuable resource for picking up hints and tricks

I've decided to cut some corners and ask for help for the final piece of my current jigsaw - effectively this comes in two bits.

Part one:

I want to copy a sheet from two open workbooks and paste them into my active wookbook. Both source workbooks only have one sheet. I want a dialogue box to select the desired workbook, select and copy all data and then paste to a specified sheet (replacing the current data) in the destination workbook. I then want to select the other source workbook from the dialogue box and copy all data to a separate sheet in the destination workbook. I would like the dialogue box to have two options - Ok to select, copy and paste data, Cancel to end the macro.

Part two:

I want to copy a sheet from my source workbook and paste it as a separate sheet in a new workbook (a one page workbook would be ideal). I then want to save the new workbook in a specified location as "Data - Date" in the format 2009 02 12.

Macro To Copy Data From Two Workbook To Another Where All Workbooks Are Open

Jun 7, 2014

I have 3 workbooks open. 1 is my working file and I name it as "Final[date].xlsm". The other 2 files are my source files which are also open are named as source1.xlsx and source2.xlsx. Both the source files has only one tab/sheet as "Sheet1". My objective is to bring the contents of the source file to my working file in 2 different sheets. all the contents in Sheet1 of "Source1.xlsx" should be paste.values only to the "Final[date].xlsm" with a sheet name "BankDetails". This will enable the user also to replace the old data in "BankDetails" tab. The "source2.xlsx" sheet1 has a different situation. I need to copy only the cells with values, not the entire cells, because it has to be pasted (values only) to range C2:L. I have formulas in the other columns before C and after L.

Take note that my working file name is changing every based on the date while my source file has always same file name.

Open Files & Copy Data Between Workbooks

Sep 15, 2007

Simply trying to copy data from one worksheet to another. The source sheet is an excel file exported from an Access table. I recorded the macro using the recorder in Excel because I am no programmer, but when I try to run the code, I get this error:

"Code execution has been interrupted" ...and the Range I tried to select in the source file is highlighted by the Editor.

Is the source file protected somehow?

My ______________________________________________________________________________

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

ChDir "P:Databasesdownloads"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="P:Databasesdownloadsheadersflat.xls", Origin:= _
Range(Selection, ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell)).Select

Copy Ranges Between Open Workbooks

May 14, 2008

I have several ranges (i.e. c11:c22, and d11:d22, etc) in an excel spreadsheet that, when the command button is selected, will copy these values into another already established workbook ("aggregator.xls").

Thus, the command button would have to pick each of these ranges and copy them into the aggregator workbook, (i.e. c11:c22 in the first workbook would be copied into b3:b14 in the aggregator workbook; d11:d22 would be copied into b18:b29 in the aggregator workbook, etc.)

In addition, I need it set up so that when the command button is selected to copy this data, that it will look in the aggregator workbook for the next available column for the section that the data will be copied to so that it doesn't write over the previous data.

Macro Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into Master Workbook

Aug 4, 2012

I have 17 workbooks which contain similar data and formatting. The only variance is the number of rows of data in each. I want to write a macro in the Master worksheet that will accomplish the following

1. Create a worksheet name in the master workbook with the same name as the workbook that it's pulling data from.
2. Copy over the column headings from columns A:P to the newly created worksheet on the master workbook
3. Copy over all rows that contain the word "down" under column D titled Operational status

The naming convention for the master workbook will be titled "All Switches". The naming convention for the worksheets containing the data are titled Port_Map_on_tiegcsw01, Port_Map_on_tiegcsw02, Port_Map_on_nypgcsw01. There are other names , but I can reference the code an update accordingly.

I found some searches on the forum for creating a macro to copy data between workbooks, but not quite sure how to write the macro for the three functions.

Open Multiple Workbooks & Copy Sheets

Jul 17, 2007

I have a created a main workbook with a macro that opens workbooks on a particular sheet from a list of workbook paths and filenames in the main workbook. The macro are suppose to copy the sheet and paste it into a sheet with a new name that I have defined from the list in the main workbook. I can get the macro to open the workbooks and close them. But I can't get the macro to copy the sheet into the main workbook.

I have attached the code and the workbook. I used slet_ark to delete previous sheet and hentark and henttekstfil to open the different workbooks.

The code I use are:

Public Sub Slet_ark()
Dim ark() As Variant
Dim Counter As Long
Dim FirstSheet As Long
Dim LastSheet As Long

Automatically Open, Copy, And Close Multiple Workbooks

Jul 26, 2006

I have 77 excel workbooks that are created each week, they are all in the same directory. I have to open each one and copy the data into a single workbook. The file names change slightly each week.

example: DIST_91124_GROWTH_PRODUCT XXX _07072006.xls The 07072006 is the week ending date and will change. Each of the 77 files has a different DIST_number.

Is there a way to automate this process, it takes me about 4 hours to do it manually.

Macro Cycle Through Open Workbooks

Mar 29, 2013

I am trying to cycle ALL open workbooks so that I can choose the file to manipulate in subsequent code this is the code that I am utilizing furhter below

this is my code


For Each wb In Workbooks
If MsgBox("Do you want to do access this Workbook for the Update " & Chr(10) & Chr(10) & wb.Name, vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
VI_wb = wb.Name
I = True
End If
Next wb

But for some reason it only loops through .xls and xlm workbooks BUT not .xlsx

is there a way that I can loop through any and all open workbooks.

The reason I do this is because my update are based on many numerous excel workbooks with differnet extentions, and naming conventions and many of the come via email, I cannot use the eact naming convention

VBA Code To Run Macro In All Open Workbooks

Mar 12, 2014

I have a macro to get copy of sheet named "Doc Info" from workbook File 1 to active workbook.

I could do it for one file on any active workbook.

But what I would require is, upon executing this macro , i want this macro to get executed in all open workbooks( could be any numbers ).

I want to move copy of sheet from File 1 to all open workbooks ( which i am doing it manualy for every file )

All these open workbooks could be from any folder , wont be in same folder.

So logic is to execute my macro apply in all open workbooks in my computer.

Below is the code and i have attached file for test

HTML Code: 

Sub Copysheet()
Dim wSht As Worksheet
Dim wBk As Workbook
Dim wBk1 As Workbook

Set wBk = ActiveWorkbook 'Workbooks("File 2.xls")
Set wBk1 = Workbooks("File 1.xlsm")
Set wSht = wBk1.Sheets("Doc Info")

wSht.Copy before:=wBk.Sheets(1)

End Sub

Macro To Open Passworded Workbooks

Jun 20, 2008

I've got a workbook ("Overview") which needs to refer to other workbooks (actually staff timesheets) which sit on a shared drive. All of these are passworded so only the staff member (and myself) can access them

As the workbook opens, it reads the links from the other files, and thus I have to enter the passwords one by one to update the data. I have come up with a macro which should do the job as follows:-

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

MsgBox "OK to run macro?"
' Message is here to let me know if the macro has run
Application.Workbooks.Open "S:LeaveTimesheetsFred 2008.xls", True, False, , "abc", "abc"
Application.Workbooks.Open "S:LeaveTimesheetsBill 2008.xls", True, False, , "def", "def"
Application.Workbooks.Open "S:LeaveTimesheetsTom 2008.xls", True, False, , "ghi", "ghi"
Application.Workbooks.Open "S:LeaveTimesheetsDick 2008.xls", True, False, , "jkl", "jkl"
Application.Workbooks.Open "S:LeaveTimesheetsHarry 2008.xls", True, False, , "mno", "mno"

End Sub

This seems to work, as it opens the workbooks. However, it doesn't run until after I've been manually prompted to enter the passwords. I'm guessing that the workbook links are taking precedence over the macro?

Is there either:-

a) A way to update the data into Overview without having to actually force the timesheets to open?

b) A way to make the macro run before the links update?

(btw I've not compromised the user passwords as Overview is itself passworded, so no-one can view the code!)

Macro Stops After Workbooks.Open

May 16, 2007

In the last week the following code has ceased to work, and I do not know why:

If TradeShow = True Then
ReportFile = " ANALYSIS PRINT (CS+T) MASTER.xls"
End If
Workbooks.Open Filename:=ReportFile, ReadOnly:=True
Worksheets("TRANSFER DATA").Select
PriceFile = "PRICE COMPARISON.xls"

The Workbooks.Open command executes, and the screen shows the cells of the new spreadsheet. Nothing else happens, and the cursor is sensitive to operator control, showing that Macro control has been lost. I have inserted a test 'MsgBox' after the .Open command, and not even that is executed - so I am certain that the .Open is in some way wiping out the Macro.

Macro To Open Specific Files And Copy Data From Week Number Sheets

Jan 8, 2010

What im trying to do is have a macro that will open a file called Blue 1.xls in location "I:SchedulesBlue" and then copy data from cells N13:034. Then paste it into another excel file (Press.xls)on worksheet "Press Break" cell G14.

The data that is copied not always fills up the cells N13:O34 so I need it to go to the next blank cell in column N and paste the information from file Blue 2, and so on for Yellow 1, Yellow 2, YellNR, and Green.

So to summarise I need a macro to open 6 files copy data from the same location on each of the files(N13:O34) then close and paste it into a master document(Press.xls) worksheet "Press Break".

Macro Code To Work Between 2 Open Workbooks

Jun 4, 2008

I am trying to simultaneously use two Excel workbooks that are open at the same time--one is calculations--other is data worksheet = one scenario: A macro uses "Set" to specify workbooks for "current_wb" and "wbkFrom". Code here

Set current_wb = ThisWorkbook
Dat_Fil = Application. GetOpenFilename
Workbooks.Open Dat_Fil
Set wbkFrom = Application.ActiveWorkbook

NOTE-Workbook object variables are declared outside any macro, and as "public." Code here

Public current_wb As Workbook
Public wbkFrom As Workbook

In a second macro I want to use the Current_wb and wbkFrom object variables I set in first macro, but get the following error: "object variable or With block variable not set" for any of the following statements in the second macro


I've declared the object variables as public in a different code module where there is no other code; I've tried declaring as public at the top of the code module that has my macros, but declared at top of code module and outside any macro; I've tried declaring the object variables as "static" variables (instead of "public") within the first macro. I can't figure this out.

Macro To Open Workbooks Of Multiple Specific Names?

May 2, 2014

I currently have a piece of code that opens all of the files in a folder that are called "*agent*", opens them and copies information. Now, these files come with numbers at the beginning which, are always the same. I only want to open certain files that begin with, for example, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805 and 806. How would I write this into my code? As you can see from the below code, it now looks for the files that all have "agent" in the name, but this is opening files that have that name but are not the right ones. Here is my current macro...

[Code] ....

I hope this isnt as simple as putting "MyFile = Dir(MyFolder & "*801*", "*802*")" etc.

Macro To Open Protected Workbooks Prompting To Enter Password?

Jul 25, 2012

I am having an issue with a macro to open password protected workbooks. The macro works just fine in opening the files and whatnot, but for some reason it prompts me to enter the password again once the file has been opened. Funny thing is I can either hit OK or hit Cancel and it goes to the next file. All files open correctly, I was just curious as to why this is happening and how to correct it?

Import Data From Several Closed Workbooks To A Single Sheet In An Open Workbook

Aug 3, 2009

I need to import the data from a specific sheet (same named sheet on all closed workbooks) to a sheet in an open workbook. All the columns are identical in every workbook but the number of rows is variable, so the data from each subsequent workbook must be appended to the end of the current data.

Whenever a button is pressed, this macro will clear the sheet, then import the data starting in A3. The workbooks are in different folders but they all have the same name, so some sort of explorer window will probably be needed to actually select each file.

Suppress Open Events When Using Workbooks.Open

Dec 3, 2008

I have built a sub that prompts the user for a folder then opens every workbook in the folder 1 at a time to get stats on the contents of each workbook. Worked like a dam until I ran into an unexpected bug. Some of the users built on open events in their workbooks. ...

Right now my routine inventories workbooks to get formula counts, cell counts, most complex formula, highest value... it does this by looping throught the sheets and the cells. If there is a way of obtaining those stats without opening the workbook I may need to rethink a lot of my work.
