Macro To List Files Then Rename Based On Other Cell

Mar 25, 2014

I have a macro attached with attached file; it will list the files then will re-name the files based on other cell

example;

Cell A2 = New.mp4
Cell B2 = ggffrr.mp4

so the file New.mp4 will be renamed to ggffrr.mp4.

it is working fine but the location will be always desktop or documents location

i need from the macro to rename the files and to keep them in the same location.

Macro Rename Excel Files Based On Cell Contents?

Jun 23, 2014

Can a macro rename Excel files based on a cell's contents? The problem maybe that I download these files en masse from a website and they all have 54-character long randomly generated filenames which I can rename by selecting all and then use the rename function to get a series of filenames like a, a(2), a(3), ... but I would rather have the files renamed based on the text that exists in cell B1 which is the title of the report. I also read somewhere that this kind of macro only works if the tabs have names like "Sheet 1"

Rename Files Based On List

May 26, 2013

I have several .mp3 files in a directory that I'd like to rename based on a list.

Currently I have a sheet with two columns starting at "A2" and "B2"

Column A contains the file path and old name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListOldName_01
Column B contains the file path and new name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListNewName_01

I've modified the code below (obtained here on these forums) to work with mp3 files, which renames them, but it also corrupts my files.

VB:
Sub Rename_Files_from_List()
Dim oFiles As Range, fPath As String
Set oFiles = Range("A2", Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
fPath = Range("D2").Value

[Code] .....

Is it possible to write a macro that will rename a worksheet based on the value of the cell?

For instance, if cell a1 has the value Test, the worksheet should be named Test. If I change the value of the cell to say Test 1, the worksheet should automatically rename itself to Test 1.

Macro To Rename Files In A Folder

Jun 16, 2014

Macro to rename files

I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.

I need a vba code to

- choose a folder instead of a file
- find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d"
- rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.

I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.

I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.

Is this possible with vba?

Here a code i found in the link mentioned above, that i have applied and works - but needs to be modified to meet my needs:
Sub GetImportFileName()

Dim Filt As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant
Dim newname As String

[Code].....

Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro

Jun 11, 2009

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.

Copy Files To New Folder Path Based On Cell List

Mar 14, 2008

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?

Rename 500 Sheets Based On Modified Cell Value On Each Sheet

Jul 31, 2013

I receive a workbook each day with approx 500 tabs of call data and I would like to relabel all the tabs with the user names. The user names are in a merged range "A7:M7". I'm having difficulty getting the following script to rename the sheets. Currently the values in "A7:M7" look like "User: ADAM ENGEMANN-558".

I am trying to delete each occurrence of "User: " while naming the sheets as well as removing the merged range before doing so that the names are in A7 only. The sheet names should look like "ADAM ENGEMANN-558", or, ideally just "ADAM ENGEMANN". For some reason my code will not modify the cells. (See attached example)

This works if I manually unmerge the cells before running and remove the ":".

VB:
Sub RenameSheets2()
Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Range("A7").Value <> "" Then

[Code] .....

This his how I modified it but it doesn't work on the supplied sheets. Please note that if I manually insert some blank sheets into my workbook and merge the cells etc it does work. There seems to be something odd going on with the sheets they are giving me. (they aren't protected)

VB:
Sub RenameSheets2()
Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Range("A7").Value <> "" Then

I tried adding the following to remove the merged ranges and remove 'User: ' from the names
Range("A7:M7").Select
With Selection
.WrapText = False
.MergeCells = False

[Code] ......

Rename Tab Based On Cell Value And Increment Invoice Number

May 2, 2012

What I'm trying to do is from a template worksheet that I have in a workbook with other worksheets, I'm trying to come up with code that will create a new worksheet based on the template (copy), increment the invoice number, and rename the worksheet tab to be "Invoice # xxxx" (new invoice number from prev. step.).

I have figured out how to use a button on the template to execute, but as I said my VBA skills are lacking to say the least.

Rename Multiple Text Files

Nov 18, 2006

In a folder I have several text files (each text file is a customer statement)
I get the files from the computer dept named randomly, I need to rename each
File to its customer ID number, each ID consists of 15 characters (including the dash characters) and is found on the 3rd row of the file (3rd row , skip one character And count 15 characters ex : 0010-902514-422)

I found a code that renames the text files incrementally (1,2,3..). I need to modify the code so that instead of renaming the files that way I rename them by their ID number (get the ID of each file while looping then rename It by that ID)
One more thing, can I get the ID then skip 44 characters and attach the following 14 characters to the ID (ex : 0010-902514-422- Lebanese Pound). ttached is a folder containing an excel file with the code and 2 statements

Sub RenFile()
Dim arrFiles As Variant
Dim intCounter As Integer
Dim datFile As Date
Dim strFile As String, strPath As String
strPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
arrFiles = FileArray(strPath, "*.txt")
For intCounter = 1 To UBound(arrFiles)
strFile = arrFiles(intCounter)
Name strPath & strFile As strPath & intCounter & ".txt"
Next intCounter
End Sub

Private Function FileArray(strPath As String, strPattern As String)

Dim intCounter As Integer.............................

Automated Worksheet Copy, Rename Based On Cell Results

Jul 29, 2009

I am building a workbook. The data we are tracking is all in one xml file, which i have mapped to 3 different worksheets(customers, invoices, inventory). On the customers and inventory sheet I have an interface for creating a new customer/product/invoice. I used the macro recorder to make the macro's to do these three things, but could use help on a couple of other functions as I don't actually know VBA. I need to be able to automate editing of existing records by having a button to press on the each sheet that will open an input box that asks the user which invoice number, customer number or product number he would like to edit, then copy that record to the interface for editing, then another macro to replace the existing data with the newly edited data. It would also be wonderful if when creating or editing an invoice it could create a copy of the interface worksheet and rename it as the invoice number. The first row of each datasheet is blank, and each of the interfaces have formula's for importing the information copied to row 1 from the data tables. the second row of each datasheet contains formulas for importing data from the interface. Any help would be terrific...I know you guys are excel gods and I will forever be in your debt if you can help me out....thanks in advance, I'll be studying my butt off until I figure this out

Rename Sheet And Hide / Unhide Based On Cell Contents?

Feb 10, 2014

I have a master sheet where users can change the name of 20 different sheets in the workbook by changing a cell value on the master sheet. Here is the code:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rCell As Range
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

[Code]....

The next step which I am having issues with is hiding the sheets. I want all sheets in the workbook to be hidden except for the master. I only want the other sheets to be visble if the user inputs a name on the master sheet.

So if the cell contents on the master sheet, say "B9", is blank, the sheet in the workbook that corresponds to that cell will remain hidden. If the user inputs anything, say "Sheet1", in cell "B9" on the master sheet, I want that sheet to become unhidden and to be named "Sheet1"

Loop Through All Files Rename And Save In Another Folder

Well I am stuck right now because the macro is doing what it's supposed to do for one excel file only and does not continue with the rest of the available files for a reason.
