Merge Files? (add Data From One Spreadsheet To The Appropriate Places On Another Spreadsheet)
Often I need to add data from one spreadsheet to the appropriate places on another spreadsheet. For example:

Sheet A has 10,000 records with these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment.

Sheet B has 5,000 records these fields: id#, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Some of the records in B contain information for the same id#'s as sheet A. I want to add this information together so that a Sheet C will have these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment, GPA, college major, type of degree.

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 ś∆ then do; " Do you have any idea why it is doing this.

Renaming Files From A Spreadsheet
to take a spreadsheet in excel and rename files with it. I will get all the columns together and

named properly by using the concatenate function. So when i go to rename i would have a

list of say 5,000 things to rename. In column A will be the full path. In column B will be the

new name i want it to replace the old one with extension and all. The reason i want to do this

is because that way i can work with the 5,000 files column A, B, C, D, get everything the

way i want it and then concatenate them. Then rename the files after copying and repasting

them so there is no formula. This would just be much easier than having to go to each

individual file and rename. also a lot easier to be able to compare and see what is going on

in spreadsheet i can sort compare. just a lot easier. i have messed around with excel some

but not macros much. what i would like to do is for a macro to look in A1 for path then

rename with B1. then A2 for path then rename with B2. loop through all rows until there is

nothing in A? that way there does not have to be a certain number of files. i do not know if

C: estSGB04SGB04-08 - Frank Sinatra - Wives And

rename to B1

SGB04-08 - Sinatra, Frank - Wives And

Using SAP To Export Files To A Spreadsheet
I am using SAP to export files to a spreadsheet for Excel 2004. Whenever I do this, there would be a problem with numbers.

For eg, there is reference ids available like 02651977 and when the files is opened from excel, these reference Id's will lose its 0. And it becomes and ID of 2651977.

I need help from here if any and fast.. Or else I will have to use concantations for batch of files for my whole life with 372648235417612536712 columns of data.

Open All Xls Files In Folder & Copy To 1 Spreadsheet
Iím wondering if this is possible, if I have a folder with say 30 excel spreadsheets (.xls) all named differently (number of files will always change), can I easily write something in VBA to Open all the spreadsheets and copy each sheet over to an existing Excel spreadsheet? For example, have a Ďtemplateí spreadsheet where the VBA would exist, then have the first sheet, (Sheet1) of each 30 sheets be copied back over to the template.xls? Even better, could I rename each Sheet1 to the name of the file before copying it over? This would basically be the first step in my process of getting the spreadsheet made.

I found this code in a similar question, so how can I rename the Sheet to the opened file name, then copy that over to template.xls?

Is there a way to retrieve the content from all the files in a folder, and merge it in a single file?

For example:

How To Create Buttons To Navigate Around A Spreadsheet
I was wondering how to create buttons such that when the user clicks on the button they are automatically taken to a different part of the workbook.

I'd like to do this because my spreadsheet is now large enough such that navigating just using the sheet tabs at the bottom is not ideal.

I can create a hyperlink, but I think a button just looks nicer.

Create Clone Copy Of Spreadsheet For A New Year
I have an Excel spreadsheet containing a large amount of formulas applicable to 2009. I want to create a duplicate workbook for 2010. I want to maintain all cell formatting, ie A1=sum(whatever) without retyping it all. When I attempt to use copy-and-paste (or paste special) from 2009 to 2010, the cell values maintain a reference to the 2009 workbook. For example on 2010 workbook, A1=[2009]sum(whatever). Therefore the values from 2009 print in cells. I only want to maintain cell formula formatting, not a reference back to 2009 workbook.

Automatically Create Csv Files From Columns
I have an excel worksheet with data from A to T and the numbers of rows may change from use to use. I want to create a button/macro that determines where the data ends and will take the data from two columns, say column A and column D and put it in a new csv file.

In my final product, I would really like to be able to have a set of check boxes that say "Column D", "Column E", ... "Column T" and so if I check TWO boxes, say "Column D" and "Column T" and click create, it will output TWO csv files, one with Column A and Column D and the other with Column A and Column T.

Create Automatic Link To Files In Same Folder
I have two files,

1. Form Templete & 2. Student Data Index. (Both files will be placed in same folder)

About Form Templete : This is a simple form, containing some fields. Fields which i require are Form No., Student's name & Standard.

About Student Data Index : This file is to maintain records.
Each time when I fill form for a new student i will copy paste the form templete file & rename it by form no. (Entered in the Form Templete file, Form No. field)

My question is : Is it possible that whenever i create a new file in the same folder with student's name the required fields in the Student data Index get filled automatically, apart from that the new file created get hyperlinked & when i click on form no. the form for that student gets open?

I've found countless, very useful macros that do 1/3 of what i need. My needs:

1) A macro to look in a set network folder, and generate a list of Excel files, and display them (1 per row, just the file name if possible)

2) Each file name is a hyperlink to open that sheet

3) A macro to look at the file listed above, then list in the column B a value from a set cell. So it would ideally output:

1| RH0018.xls A1CellValue

Locate Files Of Predefined Extension, In Predefined Location & List In Spreadsheet
I require a bit of code that locates where the excel file is stored - it then searches that directory folder for all file names. Any file names with an extension *.hm for example are listed in column A, while their relevant 'Dates of last Modification' are listed in Column B.

Every time the spreadsheet opens it should ask the user if he/she requires a re-search of this directory and update of any file names accordingly. NB: if a file name is deleted from the directory, the file name should remain in the spreadsheet.

Macro Fixes Macro: Copies Tabs From The Spreadsheet
I am working on a macro that copies tabs from the spreadsheet the macro (button) is located in, creates a new book for them, and then pastes values so that no formulas still exist. The problem I am having is with named ranges. The named ranges do not reference the new sheet, but rather the old spreadsheet. This is fine because the new file is solely for presentation, however, one macro (which selects print ranges based on user selected checkboxes) tries to reference the old spreadsheet once it runs. I would like the macro that I currently have working, to also make this macro in the NEW spreadsheet so that it can still highlight the correct print area when used. The macro does not reference the name of the workbook at any point, it is purely "Range("ai10") type references so I don't understand why it is trying to open the old sheet back up.

Macro To Navigate Through Spreadsheet
when the user selects any cell(s), then hits the command button, I want the code to move the cell(s) selection to the far left i.e. Column "A". I've managed this is a roundabout way, but I'm trying to make a far more elegant version.

Set C = Selection
With C
While Not C.Previous Is Nothing
MsgBox C
Set C = C.Previous
End With

So C is the selection made my the user, for this example they are just selecting one cell. The MsgBox proves to me the code to moving the cell selection to the left, but the While condition falls as the Previous test condition fails and bombs the macro. I cannot think of another way of doing this. Is there a method that returns X and Y co-ordinates as numbers?

Use Macro To Print Spreadsheet
Trying to summarise large (but varied # of rows depending on which project is being reported on) table for specific values. I get the size of the sheet by:

FinalRow = Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row
FinalCol = Cells(1, 255).End(xlToLeft).Column

As all the search criteria are numbers lists from out ERP System, a 'For' 'Next' loop seems to work on the Auto-filter settings, and only display the matching values. As I am only trying to get the number of occurrences, and not do anything with the data in the sheet, the 'Count' function seems to work pretty well:

'Change to " proper" dates and insert TTC columns
Columns("C:G").NumberFormat = "d/mm/yy;@"
Columns("F:F").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("F1").FormulaR1C1 = "TTC"
Columns("F:F").NumberFormat = "0"
Range("F2").FormulaR1C1 = _
Range("F2").Resize(FinalRow - 1, 1).FillDown
Range("A1").FormulaR1C1 = "=COUNT(R[1]C:R[500]C)"
Range(Selection, ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell)). AutoFilter

How can I replace the '=COUNT(A2:A500)' with '=COUNT(A2:A[FinalRow])' and only count the rows I need to? This sheet can change from between 20 rows up to 50K+. I understand that this may look messy, but have only been playing with VBA for about a month, and I shall tidy it up later.

Macro Running In OS X, Able To Run This Macro On 11 Files At Once
I have this macro that a friend of mine wrote on a windows machine, and I can't quite figure out the code changes needed for OS X. For someone who knows how to do this, I'm sure it would only take a second, but I've been banging my head against the wall on this thing for too long.

Option Base 1

Dim FileSelected
Dim FileName
Dim CompiledDataArray(1 To 30, 1 To 53) ' Array to store our statistics
Dim Counter1 As Integer
Counter1 = 1
FileSelected = Application. GetOpenFilename("Your Files,*.xls", , "Select Files", , True)
If StrComp(TypeName(FileSelected), "boolean", vbTextCompare) = 0 Then Exit Sub
For Each FileName In FileSelected
Application.DisplayAlerts = False................

I can get a "open files" dialogue box to pop up, but I can't figure out how to make sure that multiselect is enabled. I need to be able to run this macro on 11 files at once.

VBA Macro To Move Shape Around Spreadsheet
I am trying to write a set of code, part of which involves moving a shape around an excel spreadsheet in a square shape within a certain range. It is based on a random number generator. The shape moves a number of cells to the left/right/up/down depending on the random number (d) multiplied by 16. If the shape reaches a row or column border point, it will change direction but continue moving in the new direction until it has gone as far as was determined by the random number (*16). I have some code which works fine... to a point! The shape starts out, reaches a right hand border, changes direction to go up, reaches another border, changes again and goes left, but then when it comes to change dorection the 3rd time and go down, it fails. The direction of the shape is determined by a word in cell A1 - left/right/up/down:

Sub MoveRed()
Application. ScreenUpdating = True
Dim d As Integer
Dim i As Integer

d = Range("AZ1").Value

With ActiveSheet.Shapes("RedDot")
For i = 1 To 16 * d

Select Case Range("A1").Value

Applying Macro To Entire Spreadsheet At Once
For simplicity, let's assume I have three columns, "Company," "Policy," and "Balance."

Company A Life $1
Company A Med $2
Company A Dent $3
Company A Disab $4
Company B Life $9
Company B Med $5
Company B Dent $7
Company B Disab $2

According to my post preview, the columns are running together, but I do have it arranged in three distinct columns. What I want to do is program a macro to do the following:

Every time the name of the company changes, I want Excel to insert two rows after the last of the group, and have a summation of the "Balance" column in the first inserted row.

This is what it should look like:

Company A Life $1
Company A Med $2
Company A Dent $3
Company A Disab $4
$10 <- (this should be directly under the $4, but I'm not good with forum languages)

Company B Life $9
Company B Med $5
Company B Dent $7
Company B Disab $2
$23 <- (same with this - should be directly under the $4)
