Macro To List Folder Names Within A Directory

Nov 26, 2009

i'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.

Folder Names Instead Of File Names/macro

Dec 10, 2008

I need to make this macro read FOLDER names instead of FILE names. When I posted this question yesterday to get this macro, I wasn't told that each file in its own folder. I need the folder names now.

If .Execute() > 0 Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
Cells(i, 1) = .FoundFiles(i)

Else
Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found"

List Names Of Workbook Files In Folder

Apr 29, 2008

I tried to write some VBA code to loop through all the files in a folder and return the name of the file. (In my current example, all the files are excel workbooks)

Here is the code I have used:

Sub Load_List()

Dim lCount As Long
Dim wbResults As Workbook
Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook

Set wbCodeBook = ThisWorkbook

With Application.FileSearch
.NewSearch
'Change path to suit
.LookIn = "G:CFOMiddle OfficeDannyFine Tunning for JP"
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks

However, when I tried to run the code, it give me the error message saying: the defined type of the variable are not been defined. Seems to me, that VBA dont have the variable type as Folder, or File.

Import List Of File Names From Folder Into Single Spreadsheet?

Macro That List Files In A Folder

Jul 10, 2012

Here is a macro I have found and manipulated for my particular case. The problem is that I want to narrow the search criteria by just pdfs and only those starting with Segment which i know in coding would be something like "Segment" & "*" & ".pfd" or something to those terms but the code uses objects which I'm not too familiar with.

Code:
Sub ListAllFile()

Dim objFSO As Object
Dim objFolder As Object
Dim objFile As Object
Dim ws As Worksheet

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ws = Sheets("Simple Cut Lists (2)")

How do i set objFile to just pick up my criteria?

Macro To Lookup Files In Folder And List Them

May 21, 2012

The following code is something that was developed to find files with certain criteria that matches references in cells A1 & A2. The coding is as follows:

Code:
Option Explicit
Option Compare Text 'for Case-Sensitive matching change Text to Binary
Sub List_Matches()
Dim sPattern As String, sPath As String, sJob As String
Dim sMainDir As String, sCommonSub As String
Dim c As Range, lRow As Long

[Code] .......

The red is the area of the code i am having problems with. The original code was going to look only in one directory, now I wanted to add a second directory with reference located in E5. Now as is the program works fine looking at directory 1 or E4, but the problem i feel is that for E5 all the folder name are named "WO#_____ - ______". I believe the # sign is not allowing it to open that folder and search for the info. In the code there is a function for solving the # sign problem in a file name, but how could i either modify the code or the function to do the same for the folder name and view the # sign as a valid file name to open?

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day

Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates

Aug 26, 2008

I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

Highest Number From File Names In Folder

Dec 22, 2009

I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:

c: est

has the following files:
Untitled.xls - read only
abc-09-001.xls
abc-09-002.xls
abc-09-003.xls
abc-09-004.xls

Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).
